a parade for lil Donnie

The only military parade our lying, racist, traitor of a president should get is in Moscow from the country he serves. Military parades should be reserved for American heroes who can never be given enough respect. Five-time draft dodgers deserve nothing but shame and disgust.

good, but troubling, information

I, being an official member of the older adult category, cannot let information such as this get away without a comment or two. This information isn’t new to me, but I feel it might be for some.

Having recently concluded three years as a pastor of an elderly congregation (average age of 83), I have seen this firsthand. It’s not a pretty picture.

All of us would do well to pay attention to the seniors in our lives. They are many small things we can do to help ease their struggles, but it starts with awareness.

Care and respect for the elderly among us is a tradition most of believe in, and rightfully so. What can you do to ease the hardship of an older friend or family member during this Christmas season?

before and after (part 2)…

Here is another small illustration of the difference a year makes. The world’s confidence of our nation’s leadership and our doing the right thing just continues to plummet as the world realizes we now have a lying, egotistical clown in our highest position of power.

a lie is a lie

Euphemistically speaking, I don’t care what you care to call them. The bald-faced lies of #BLOTUS are lies. The only relation they have to facts are that the are usually diametrically opposed. And even when his lies snuggle up close to the truth they are made slimy with intent.

A lie is a lie. All the fact checkers cannot be wrong. I remain mystified by my nation’s inability to acknowledge that #BLOTUS is a pathological liar that cannot be trusted. He grabs the truth as he brags about grabbing women. And he respects them both only as much as he can use them for his pleasure.

ignorance is not a virtue

Ignorance is not, and has never been, a virtue. Neither is lying. This is what is so disconcerting about the approval and election of #BLOTUS to the highest office of our nation.

The almost incomprehensible ignorance and the continuous torrent of unabashed lies of #BLOTUS boggles the mind and turns the stomach. I remember when the President of the United States could be both trusted and respected. It’s only been a month, but already seems like a different age.

Farewell, Mr. President!

For eight years we have been blessed with a scandal-free First Family. I, for one, will miss President Obama’s quiet dignity and deep strength in the face of all the hatred and opposition he faced from the moment he took the oath of office.

History will bear record to his accomplishments. He has exemplified true servant leadership and has led our nation with intelligence, wit, humor and true humility.

We now enter a new era where the new leader of our nation thrives on lies and scandals, cannot communicate a clear thought and reeks of racism, xenophobia and bigotry. I, along with most of the world, am holding my breath as the United States begins a perilous journey led by an ego larger than the nation, itself.

Farewell, President Obama, and God bless you. You are already missed.
