I have watched the video and have listened to the chaplain’s prayer. It is a theologically-solid prayer, much like I have prayed on many occasions. It was not partisan. It just lifted up the Representatives’ responsibility on behalf of the least of these among us. But, that was far too threatening for that august body.
Paul Ryan fired the chaplain for reflecting the light of Christ in the midst of darkness. Shining the light of Christ’s love in a den of thieves causes them to flee every time.
Standing up for the poor and hungry, especially to the wealthy and powerful elite, is a good way to shorten your career path. It’s also, however, how you stay on the highway to holiness.
Shame on Paul Ryan, and shame on all those in the U.S. House of Representatives who have not stood up against this action.
When those we have elected to lead us fail as dismally as those we now have in leadership, they need to be removed as fast as legally possible and replaced with those who understand that they are elected to serve the citizens, to the other way around.
Words are insufficient to describe my shame over the lack of character displayed by those Senators who continue to support such a critically flawed human as Donald Trump. Such a complete absence of moral leadership deserves nothing but contempt and revulsion.
Those in Congress who refuse to speak up should not be allowed any position of political leadership. They are cowards at best, and treasonous at worst.
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.
Maybe this should be the test of tax reform as well…just a thought. From all I’ve seen, the Republican Tax Bill does just the opposite.
We really don’t need to”help” our already profitable corporations and the wealthiest of the wealthy in our country. This tax plan doesn’t move us forward as a nation. It rewards the rich and ignores those needing help the most.
The Republican tax plan doesn’t make our country great, and it has nothing to do with progress. It is simply another demonstration of those in power paying back their wealthy backers. It is shameful at best, and morally repugnant to the core.
No President in our history has lied as much, as often, as badly as this man. Now he is openly endorsing another sexual predator for the US Senate. There is seemingly no limits to his shame, and no end to the harm he is willing to do to get his way. His impeachment cannot come too soon.
This is an actual photo of a FEMA Meal Kit provided to Puerto Rican victims in the aftermath of their devastating hurricane, and is yet another travesty. When will our government begin to truly provide the necessary aid our citizens deserve?
I do not know about you, but canned chicken and Cheetos do not constitute and entree for me. And candy bars don’t make the most nutritious dessert. It reminds me of when the government insisted that ketchup was a vegetable for school lunch menus.
What this actually amounts to is a shameful disregard for common morality. We should hold our officials to at least a minimum standard of decency. And this doesn’t meet it.
