a simple, but solid, working definition

When I think of #BLOTUS, his family and cronies, this quote immediately comes to mind. Never in my lifetime have I witnessed such unmitigated intolerance, lying and corruption focused in the hands of so few and accepted by so many.

brilliantly understated by Captain Obvious

Even though it’s refreshing to see that Cabinet members do have at least a tenuous grasp on reality, Secretary of State Tillerson wasn’t quoted correctly.  At least one source reports that he actually called the #BLOTUS  “a F_ _ _ _ing moron.”

That makes more sense, and is a far more accurate description of his boss. Call ’em like ya see ’em Rex.

we knew, we know, and we are paying the price

We all knew what #BLOTUS was before he was elected and we all know what he still is today. Yet, he was still elected to the highest office in the United States. Why?

Since his election has he done anything other than reinforce what we have known all along? I think not.

Why is he allowed to remain in office? Why is he allowed to continue embarrassing our country every time he opens his filthy mouth? Why doesn’t the Republican-led Congress hold him accountable for his lies and total disregard for the law? Why aren’t we all outraged enough to act?

I have never been more ashamed of my country’s leaders as I am today. Am I the only one?

the government we deserve

One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.:

Close to 50% of citizens refused to participate in the last election for the President of the United States. That is their right. But the cost, ever more apparent to the entire world, is not only painful, it is far more damaging than we can imagine.

Our right as citizens is one of the greatest gifts we have been given. To choose not to exercise our right to vote is the ultimate disrespect all of those whose sacrifices have given it to us. Choosing to not participate, even at the most basic level, in politics is what guarantees that we have the government we deserve.

“I personally resent it bitterly”

Imagine:

Isaac Asimov has captured my feelings perfectly. Those that refuse to agree with fact built on a foundation of thousands of years of science and rational study have a right to their views, but to use those “feeble and childish beliefs” to enact laws that destroy our planet for personal gain is absolutely repugnant…and I, Like Issac Asimov, personally resent it bitterly
