a sign of truth

Here is a person of faith that gets it. If only all white evangelicals could understand who they have strayed from the teachings of Jesus…

repugnant is as repugnant does

Human rights are violated when a tax reform plan lines the already bulging pockets of the rich at the cost of life-saving services for the poor. Human rights are violated when corporations are given precedence over the hungry.

The Republican leaders in Congress have clearly demonstrated that they are unafraid of violating human rights on a massive scale. Their willingness to promote and support unfair economic structures for their own benefit is even more morally repugnant than their continued support and protection of a traitorous president.

Those guilty of either or both should be legally removed from office and tried for treason.

sound familiar?

Here we go again. Will we even learn from history?

We now have a country where the wealthy are in control. They have and use the power to feather their own nests at the cost of the poor and middle classes. The recent tax scam is only the latest demonstration.

We now live in a nation where 95% of us provide labor and benefits for the power elite. Welcome to a class society where your position is to serve the wealthy, Unless we decide to change it, this is fast becoming our world.

“I will never understand…”

I agree, but actually would expand the thought to include any one (and especially white evangelicals) who claims to follow Jesus and yet ignores those in greatest need. The Gospels are not just clear on this point, but explicit.

MAGA…really?

The man in the offal office controls the Executive branch of the government. His party controls both the Senate and the House of Representatives, and the Supreme Court leans right, as well. And #BLOTUS still whines about the obstructionist Democrats.

He has been in office for almost a full year.  Just what exactly is his definition of making America great again? His tiny legacy, like everything else connected to him is a shameful failure that demonstrates a dangerous lack of morality and an egotistical focus on personal greed.
