Who is the most unstable?

#BLOTUS is playing with fire, and threatening the security of the entire world. No sitting president of our country has ever threatened to unleash the “fire & fury” of a nuclear war on any enemy of the US. Now, this man is doing exactly that with one of the most unstable nations on the planet.

It is like teasing a rabid animal to see if you can make it even more angry, then being shocked when it actually attacks and mauls you.

President Teddy Roosevelt love to say “speak softly and carry a big stick.” The approach of #BLOTUS is just the opposite. He is known to speak loudly and carry a tiny stick. It’s a shame he doesn’t know anything about history or the dog he is now baiting.

wallowing in the White House

Anyone who has ever had the privilege of raising pigs can recognize the stench long before they get into kissing distance. Pigs have a certain ordure that’s as pungent as it is unmistakable.

It’s the same with politicians. If they cannot pass the smell test, then there’s probably a good reason.

Our current president has made a mockery of the office, abusing it in every way possible. Pigs have their place. But, it’s both shameful and disgusting to have one wallowing in the White House.

 

start where you are, but start now

All of us can make a difference in the world. Every single one of us can nudge the world in the right direction. The secret is simple.

START.

This is all that is necessary for us to see a brighter future. Start now. Wherever you are, with whatever resources available, you have the power to make the world a better and safer place for all of us. Justice begins when we act.

patriotism

When I was younger I swore an oath to defend the United States, even giving my life if necessary to protect our freedoms and way of life. I have never rescinded that pledge. I am a patriot, and I respect the office of the President as the highest office in our country.

But, President Roosevelt was right. Being a patriot doesn’t mean one has to stand by a president who cannot tell the truth and whose ego is so warped that he is obsessed with his small hands, his small crowds, and his tiny margin of victory.

I do not want a reality show, ratings-driven egomaniac with his finger on the button. I want a a leader worthy of this nation. If BLOTUS truly represents the values we hold as a nation, I, for one, have to reconsider what it means to be a patriot.

morally treasonable

This admonition by a former President is well worth remembering as we draw ever closer to the BLOTUS  being officially installed in the highest office of the land. The American public has a patriotic duty to hold every President to the highest standards. Not to do so goes beyond being unpatriotic, it is moral treason.
