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.
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…
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.
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?
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?
