a lie is always a lie…

We have a pathological, lying pig in the White House who is unable to even spell truth, much less, practice it. His open attacks on our democratic principles and values never cease, and his greed and hubris knows absolutely no limits.

The danger is not that a majority believes or supports this racist whore monger. The danger is  the constant barrage of lies, the unrelenting attacks on the norms of decency, and the never-ending pressing of the legal limits of our society.

Over time we can become worn down and actually begin to accept all of this as “normal.” We do so, however, at our peril. This must never be allowed to happen. We have to remember that a lie is always a lie.

“A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good just because it is accepted by the majority.”

 

the happiest folks

 :

Booker T. Washington was absolutely spot on with his assertion about the happiest people are the ones who do the most for others. The more we reach out and actually help those around us, the more joy we experience.

The deepest joy we can know is to give ourselves for others. Severing those whose need is the greatest brings a satisfaction and and joy found nowhere else.

It’s about giving. It’s about serving. It’s about loving. It’s what makes life worth living.
