politics is about us

It is up to us to take charge. We have to make the changes necessary to save our republic. We can do it, but we have to work together to make it happen. Get involved. Know the issues. Be proactive and above all, VOTE.

I couldn’t agree more…

When I was nineteen I swore an oath to defend my country. I have seen nothing in the intervening 50+ years that releases me from that promise.

My tweets, my Facebook posts, and my blog are all attempts to remain faithful to that oath I made when I became a Marine. I love this country far too much to allow a lying whoremonger to destroy all that it stands for around the world.

she’s from another country…

No photo description available.

There are far too many who no longer believe in the promises of Lady Liberty. They would be pleased to banish her and her values of caring, compassion and love for the downtrodden, poor and hungry.

I, for one, love her and her promises. I deplore our xenophobic racism. our selfishness, and our apathetic response to the growing hatred, fear, anger and ugliness of our culture.

I may be in the minority, but I want to help hold her torch higher and make it shine brighter. Working together I think we can make it happen. What do you want?

true patriotism

Theodore Roosevelt quote: Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand...

At a time when most of the Republicans in the Senate are still wallowing in “the mud, the blood and the beer” with the most corrupt, cowardly, lying pig of a president in our nation’s history, we all need to remember this powerful quote from a true leader.

Every Republican that continues to defend the #BLOTUS is as much a traitor to the United States as he is. Bone Spurs are nothing compared to the spineless actions of McConnell and his herd of swine.

Every single one of them needs to be impeached; not voted out of office, impeached, indicted and tried in a court of law.

cherish these natural wonders…

As an avid outdoorsman and one who has be blessed to visit 49 of our 50 states, I stand with Teddy on this. We cannot be silent when it comes to protecting the natural beauty of this country. Corporate greed is insatiable and could not care less about the destruction of the environment.

a painful truth

The lawyer for President of the United States has publicly declared that Trump could kill a public official and not be indicted. I expect that under a dictatorship or in a two-bit banana republic, not in a nation where the rule of law is honored.

Surely I am not alone in my outrage. When is this going to stop? It is time for us to decide what kind of country we want.
