calling a spade a spade

Image may contain: 1 person, text

In a world of political correctness and the rule of respectability above faithfulness and doing what is right, there are far too many who do not want to hear criticism of our leadership. Isn’t this what helped folks like Hitler rise to power?

The #BLOTUS is not fit to be the leader of the free world. Dan Rather has put it perfectly. It’s time for all of us to call a spade a spade and stop normalizing our current situation. The United States needs a real leader, one who realizes that the world doesn’t revolve around his rants and lies..

we were warned

Lest we forget, we were warned. And we were warned more than once.

The spectacle now unfolding, this reeking debacle of compounded incompetence, hubris, lies and blatant nepotism, is a shameful blot on the highest office in our land. What should be the most respected position in the free world is becoming a mixed-genre comedy/horror story.

Every chapter is more unbelievable than the last. And he ending is either going to have the entire world in stitches, rolling on the floor in relieved laughter, or in devastated ruins. ┬áBut, we were warned, weren’t we?

the anger of greatness

This quote by one of the greatest Presidents in our history says a great deal about our President elect. Sadly, it’s already obvious that not all our Presidents can be great leaders.

Explosive rants on Twitter in response to perceived, or even real,  personal insults is not the kind of anger that points to greatness. Uncontrolled outbursts of verbal abuse against those with whom you disagree is vindictive. It is the petty anger of smallness.

The anger of greatness is being furious at inequality and injustice, being incensed by bigotry and racism, seething at hunger in a world of plenty. The anger of greatness is the anger that leads to a better world for all.

I cannot see any such anger in our soon-to-be new President. He demonstrates plenty of anger. Sadly. it’s not the anger of greatness
