what have we become?

I do not find this remarkable. I find it remarkably sad. I am deeply ashamed of the image our country now presents to the rest of the world. The acceptance of such corruption and the glorification of such immorality is just incomprehensible to me. The blind acceptance of the sheer brutishness of this man sickens me.

Trump just asked if the military men in front of him are real patriot because no one raised their hand to decline a pay raise to pay down the deficit.

This is one of the most insulting things I have heard from this idiotic buffoon. How dare he even joke about the military’s patriotism when he so clearly has demonstrated his own…five separate times?

The only thing more confusing than how the #BLOTUS got into office is how he stays there. Is there no limit to the blind allegiance the GOP base will offer this family? Maybe he did actually tell the truth (once) when he bragged about being able to shoot down someone in broad daylight and still have the support of his base.

the anger of greatness

This quote by one of the greatest Presidents in our history says a great deal about our President elect. Sadly, it’s already obvious that not all our Presidents can be great leaders.

Explosive rants on Twitter in response to perceived, or even real,  personal insults is not the kind of anger that points to greatness. Uncontrolled outbursts of verbal abuse against those with whom you disagree is vindictive. It is the petty anger of smallness.

The anger of greatness is being furious at inequality and injustice, being incensed by bigotry and racism, seething at hunger in a world of plenty. The anger of greatness is the anger that leads to a better world for all.

I cannot see any such anger in our soon-to-be new President. He demonstrates plenty of anger. Sadly. it’s not the anger of greatness
