Where are the patriots?

As more and more of the Republican in the House and Senate blindly join in lock-step to support #BLOTUS, we have to understand the depth of their treasonous behavior. They are putting self interest above their sworn duty. And they know that is what they are doing.

The president should be held fully accountable for all his disgusting words and actions. In my opinion that means impeachment and criminal charges. And if his toadies (is their a better word?) refuse to do their duty, they need to be removed from office and replaced with patriots.

If we do not use the gift of our citizenship we deserve what we currently have. And that is more than sad. It’s pathetic.

a tsunami every week

Every week a tsunami rips through poor towns and villages all over the world.

It claims 25,000 lives a day, 173,00 a week.

It sweeps children from the arms of their mothers, robs hundreds of millions of any hope for the future.

That tsunami is hunger.

Colin Farrell

Global hunger is the perfect storm. We don’t need to tune to the weather station to get an early storm warning. It hits every day, and kills thousands. And the only shelter necessary is for us to share the abundant resources already available.

But for some reason, even in the midst of this ongoing tsunami, we don’t care enough to act. I wonder what single word might best describe our apathy.

I am torn between two choices. I think our lack of response to the cries of the hungry is either “pathetic”  or “repulsive.”

What word would you use to describe such apathy?
