Congratulations to Doug Jones the new US Senator from Alabama! Congratulations to the people of Alabama! Congratulations the people of the United States!
Decency won big! Democrats won big! The Senate won Big! The people of the United States won big!
And the world watched as the people of Alabama said, “ENOUGH!” The win for Doug Jones is a statement that even in the one of the deepest red states in our nation there is a growing desire to return to common sense, common decency and common values.
Thank you to all who stood up, spoke out, and most especially, all those who exercised their right to vote. Citizenship is alive and well.
Lest we forget, we were warned. And we were warned more than once.
The spectacle now unfolding, this reeking debacle of compounded incompetence, hubris, lies and blatant nepotism, is a shameful blot on the highest office in our land. What should be the most respected position in the free world is becoming a mixed-genre comedy/horror story.
Every chapter is more unbelievable than the last. And he ending is either going to have the entire world in stitches, rolling on the floor in relieved laughter, or in devastated ruins. But, we were warned, weren’t we?
Not everyone likes the truth. And not everyone will admit that documented facts are real. And there are some among us who refuse to acknowledge reality, even as they are stepping in a big pile of it.
Having traveled to, and having worked in over 100 countries, many of them dictatorships, I know what dictators look like. I know how dictators act. I know how they speak. That is why I fear this new US administration.
This is not about Democrat vs. Republican or red vs. blue. This is about the future of our country. I am not calling #BLOTUS a dictator. But, I am begging everyone to open their eyes and look at reality.
If it looks like a duck, if it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, there’s a better than average chance it’s not a kitten.
