This is a good and timely reminder for all of us. For every right we have as a citizen of this great country, we also have responsibilities. We must never forget that the freedoms and the rights we have been given can be erased in a generation. Democracy only works if we take care of it and make sure it isn’t intentionally eroded.
Mitch McConnell is even worse than the lying pig in the offal office. He likes to call himself the grim reaper for blocking every piece of legislation coming from the House of Representatives. And he makes sure that everyone knows he has made sure the Supreme Court is packed with conservative, Right-wing Republicans.
Now, he and his Secretary of Transportation wife, are being investigated on a number of different corruption charges. Like the lying pig he wallows with, this toady needs to be removed from office ASAP.
The ongoing Russia attacks on our democracy is a clear and present danger. In response, heavy sanctions were overwhelmingly passed by Congress. Trump has refused to implement the sanctions. WHY?
The refusal of the president to protect our country against known attacks on our nation is a clear dereliction of duty. He has continually attacked all our intelligence, law and justice agencies, yet will not say even one critical word concerning Russia.
He is serving Russia’s interest far more that the interest and safety of the country he was elected to protect. When is his obviously dangerous preferential behavior going to be checked?
When is this lying, racist Russian lackey going to be condemned as the traitor he is? When is he going to finally going to be impeached?
“The role of the rational opposition is to stand up for the rule of law, the electoral process, the peaceful transfer of power and the role of institutions; we should not underestimate the resiliency of a system in which laws are greater than individuals and voters are as powerful as presidents. This nation survived Andrew Jackson and Richard Nixon. It survived slavery. It survived devastating wars. Most likely, it will survive again.
But if it is to do so, those who oppose the new president’s reckless and heartless agenda must make their voices heard. Protesters must raise their banners. Voters must turn out for elections. Members of Congress — including and especially Republicans — must find the political courage to stand up to Trump.”

I served 4 years (1966-1970) in the Marine Corps. While in the Marines I learned a phrase that has stuck with me. Actually, I think all veterans are familiar with it as the phrase is common in all branches of the military.
The phrase is SNAFU. It is an acronym for Situation Normal All F&%#ed Up.
This is where our nation is headed under the #BLOTUS. We are heading for a huge and historically ugly SNAFU. And I, for one, don’t want this period to be normal for the United States. I don’t want my country to be characterized by the arrogance, greed, and pathological lying of one man.
We cannot allow this administration to be normalized. It isn’t who we are. And I hope it isn’t who we want to become.
