Whenever those in power seek to secretly take away the benefits of over 22 million of our citizens they need to be held accountable. A plan so obviously flawed, so heavy weighted with huge tax breaks for the already obscenely rich, is not good for our nation.
Such a bill is definitely good in the eyes of the powerful and wealthy elite. But such a bill is morally repugnant, like those who crafted it and are trying to fast-track it through the Senate. Like their greed and their hubris, their shame has no limits.
I doubt that Cicero was warning our nation about the #BLOTUS. But, I have to admit that this statesman knew what he was talking about, and it’s just as obvious that his words should be heeded by the wise of any age.
There is no doubt in my mind that Trump appeals to”the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.” And one has only to look at his first few months in office to realize he works best in secret and at night.
The stench arising from the oval office continues to grow as the #BLOTUS rots the soul of our nation. Truly, “a murderer is less to be feared.”
“Ray Buchanan founded Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) and retired in 2015. Comments made on this site are the sole expression of the author, are not made on behalf of the organization, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the organization.”
Euphemistically speaking, I don’t care what you care to call them. The bald-faced lies of #BLOTUS are lies. The only relation they have to facts are that the are usually diametrically opposed. And even when his lies snuggle up close to the truth they are made slimy with intent.
A lie is a lie. All the fact checkers cannot be wrong. I remain mystified by my nation’s inability to acknowledge that #BLOTUS is a pathological liar that cannot be trusted. He grabs the truth as he brags about grabbing women. And he respects them both only as much as he can use them for his pleasure.
The person now leading our nation has been in court over 3,000 times. Yet, he was still thought ethical enough and intelligent enough to lead our nation. That explains a lot, doesn’t it.
The majority just seems not to care about traditional American values like honesty, truthfulness, and caring for the other person. So now we have a egotistical braggart who lives by the lie doing his best to destroy our country.
The lies of #BLOTUS caught up with him enough so that he was taken to court over 3,000 times. Who will hold him accountable now?
We no longer have a president we can respect. We have a president we need to fear.
Ignorance is not, and has never been, a virtue. Neither is lying. This is what is so disconcerting about the approval and election of #BLOTUS to the highest office of our nation.
The almost incomprehensible ignorance and the continuous torrent of unabashed lies of #BLOTUS boggles the mind and turns the stomach. I remember when the President of the United States could be both trusted and respected. It’s only been a month, but already seems like a different age.
