Powerful words, and a powerful perspective on a real danger…
One of my favorite Fantasy/Science Fiction authors, Ursula K. LeGuin, wrote that “dragons aren’t real…but they’re true.” I believe that.
And there’s a good reason why even just the thought of dragons frighten us. We instinctively know they are evil.
For anyone to horde life-saving resources while allowing 820 million of my brothers and sisters to remain chained in the shadow of hunger cannot be called anything less than evil. Allowing 20,000 of our family to succumb to the ravages of hunger every single day is evil incarnate.
So Melissa is spot on. Her tweet is absolutely correct. There are far too many human dragons in our midst. They are known as Billionaires.
Mitch McConnell is a traitor to the United States. For the past three decades he has enriched himself while destroying the basic precepts of our country. How he has been reelected is another question that needs to be answered, as well.
What I do know is he needs to be immediately impeached and removed from office. The time served behind bars should be limited to the time spent in office…
We are living in an age where our every word, our every action, must clearly demonstrate our faithfulness to Jesus Christ. This constant and consistent demonstration of discipleship includes using the gift of our citizenship to live an intentional lifestyle of love and compassion. That means we must use our opportunity to vote to stand up for the true values of the Gospel.
We must vote. And we must vote for love and compassion.
I consider it shameful when a 4th of July celebrating the founding of our nation is hijacked by a whore-mongering racist who the entire world knows is an egotistical lying pig driven by greed and controlled by the Kremlin.
What increases the shame is that the Republicans in both the House and the Senate have sold their souls to suck up to this ignorant slob. Refusing to fulfill their oath to support and defend the Constitution paints them as big a bunch of cowardly traitors as the liar-in-chief, himself.
It is well known and documented that our lying pig of a president is a cheater (in every sense of the word). He is so obsessed with winning that he will stop at nothing to come out on top. His cheating at golf is known to all and makes him a total laughing stock among those that play the game.
What makes this cartoon even more poignant is that it is too close to the truth to be funny. The Canadian cartoonist who penned it was fired the day after it was published. The truth hurts.
Our liar-in-chief is too big a racist to ever be polite or thoughtful enough to ask a drowned asylum seeker if he could play through. He would use them for a better lie, or (as is his normally practice), ignore the bodies as not important enough to interrupt his pathetic game.
His lack of compassion and morality reduces him to a sad figure lacking the necessary empathy for even basic humanity. The true shame, however, is not his anymore. Instead, it falls on every single House and Senate Republican that supports and protects him. They need to be legally removed from office as fast as he does.
