“some great and glorious day” has arrived…in spades

If Mencken is correct, and I fear he is, we deserve what we have, and we are reaping exactly what we have sown. If the fear, hatred, bitterness, open racism, greed and corruption now on display by the lying pig in the White House truly represents this great country’s “inner soul” then may God have mercy on us all.

choosing your leaders…

"Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery..." ― Octavia Butler, 'Parable of the Talents' 《Winner of the 'Nebula Award' for best Novel》

A timely quote full of much needed wisdom for the world in which we now live. The lying, racist pig now wallowing in the Offal Office meets all the criteria for dangerous leadership…

Our current president is a coward.
Our president is a fool.
Our president is a thief.
Our president is a liar.
Our president is a tyrant.

This places our nation, and each of us in a clear and present danger…

 

as Trump’s cruelty increases…

Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.

With the intentional and ever increasing violence and cruelty being enacted against immigrants and asylum seekers, it is time to remember these words of President Roosevelt. The Trump administration is daily ripping away at the true values and character of our nation. Unless we stop this madness we will all live to see the death of democracy as we have known it.

welcome the stranger…

WWJD? Yes, what would Jesus do? I think we all know. He would welcome the stranger, lift up the fallen, feed the hungry, and demonstrate compassion and love to all those seeking refuge and help.

Isn’t that exactly what we who call ourselves his disciples are supposed to be doing? Isn’t following the example of Jesus Christ exactly what should be reasonably expected of us?

she’s from another country…

No photo description available.

There are far too many who no longer believe in the promises of Lady Liberty. They would be pleased to banish her and her values of caring, compassion and love for the downtrodden, poor and hungry.

I, for one, love her and her promises. I deplore our xenophobic racism. our selfishness, and our apathetic response to the growing hatred, fear, anger and ugliness of our culture.

I may be in the minority, but I want to help hold her torch higher and make it shine brighter. Working together I think we can make it happen. What do you want?
