real leaders don’t need titles

Real leaders demonstrate their vision, their plans, their commitment and their power, through action. They consistently work to empower those around them through encouragement, coaching and positive reinforcement. Real leaders are definitely not perfect, but they are always committed to making a positive difference in the world and for the world.

Then there are others, like the #BLOTUS, who just seek power to enrich themselves. Their vision extends only as far as their mirrors and their checkbooks. Fake leaders are easily recognized by their whining, their sensitivity to criticism, and their pathological inability to accept responsibility.

No one is obliged to follow a fake leader. No one is required to respect a fake leader.

The good news is that there are real leaders who care and are willing to make a real difference. They are the ones who provide true hope for the future of our world.

We can ignore the fake leaders. Their is hope. All we need to do is to follow the real leaders.

the greatest enemy…

For all the Trump worshippers losing their damn minds when anyone dares criticize their orange god-emperor. What you're supporting is authoritarianism.:

Question everything…especially authority.

We now live in an age of fake news, consistent and uncontrollable lying from the highest office in the nation and supposedly intelligent political leaders opening denying the scientific claims and clear evidence of climate change. Blind belief in anything has become more dangerous than ever before.

We need to question everything, and that includes our own beliefs.  But, Einstein is absolutely correct. Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of the truth.

We all know that climate change cannot be real, right? It’s all just another scare tactic cooked up by progressives to keep honest business folks from making a decent profit.

And doesn’t the “good book” tell us that God created MAN to have control over the earth? That means (according to the #BLOTUS), that we can grab whatever we want. Finally, we finally have a leader who can demonstrate the good life.

Leadership includes speaking up, speaking out and taking action on critical issues impacting those we serve. Pope Francis has humbly and consistently demonstrated this leadership since arriving in Rome.

His ministry focused on the poor and dispossed marks him as a true disciple of Jesus Christ, just as this recent Earth Day quote identifies him as a leader unafraid to acknowledge reality.

It’s a shame and disgrace that more of our United States politicians could do the same.

acknowledging reality

Much has been made of President Obama’s recent statements  delivered in Florida. I am in the camp that believes the statements should have come much sooner, been far more forceful, and followed with stronger action.

It’s past time to acknowledge reality, accept the scientific data, and come to the realization that we are destroying this beautiful planet we call home. Ignoring the truth before our eyes cannot be excused, especially by those in leadership.

Many of our political leaders live inside a bubble of wealth and privilege, completely out of touch with reality. They are too blinded by greed and partisan politics to acknowledge the truth of climate change.

Shame on them. And shame on those who vote to keep them in office.

We need to openly address climate change and be honest enough to call a spade a spade.  The words “global warming” are not obscene. The real obscenity ignoring them and not acknowledging reality.

I applaud the President’s statements. Now, let’s see something more than just words.
