Redford on Pruitt

I have no difficulty in completely agreeing with Redford’s statement concerning Scott Pruitt. Like so many (the majority) of Trump’s Cabinet Appointees, he is a walking disaster bent on destroying the agency he is supposed to lead.

He doesn’t even attempt to hide his unbridled greed and corruption. Scott Pruitt needs to be fired, replaced, indicted  and tried for crimes against the American people.

Where are the patriots?

As more and more of the Republican in the House and Senate blindly join in lock-step to support #BLOTUS, we have to understand the depth of their treasonous behavior. They are putting self interest above their sworn duty. And they know that is what they are doing.

The president should be held fully accountable for all his disgusting words and actions. In my opinion that means impeachment and criminal charges. And if his toadies (is their a better word?) refuse to do their duty, they need to be removed from office and replaced with patriots.

If we do not use the gift of our citizenship we deserve what we currently have. And that is more than sad. It’s pathetic.

the loser’s tool

Socrates:

Is there any politician in recent US history that has been a bigger liar, or has used slander more than the man currently in the office of President? I think not.

It doesn’t take a philosopher to realize the danger of allowing such a person as the #BLOTUS to hold the reins of power. The leader of the free world needs to be a person of the highest moral character and a person of unquestionable integrity. Neither of these characteristics describe the #BLOTUS.

My hope is that his continuously plummeting  approval ratings are a indication that more and more of my fellow citizens are coming to understand just how unfit this man is to have the highest office in the land. He should not be allowed to continue flaunting his dictatorial disdain for our opinions nor our laws.

The #BLOTUS is not only the Biggest Liar in the US. He’s the biggest loser. And that’s why slander is his favorite tool.

facing our fear

 

Surrender Your Fears

The biggest limitation we have is our own fears. One of my own biggest fears has always been the fear of failure.

Whatever our fears, they hold us back from achieving all that we could if we push through them. We need the courage to attempt greater and more significant challenges. We just need the courage to begin.

In the end, I would much rather fail and look foolish attempting the impossible than always wondering what would have happened if I had tried. As I have often said, any action on behalf of those in need makes a huge difference.

Facing our fear, naming it, and recognizing how it limits what we can achieve is the first step to achieving so much more.  And for me, that makes me want to attempt even greater things, especially on behalf of the poor and the hungry.

 

will we ever learn?

The grades are in, and we have received a nice fat F. And F means we have failed to learn that our kids are valuable and their education is of paramount importance.

Will we ever learn? When will we begin to put a higher priority on education than we do on profit?
