never, not even once…

#BLOTUS is speaking at the United Nations. That in itself is frightening. Even more frightening is the clear and present danger of a third world war that begins with two morons having a pissing contest.

Too bad Trump is not as smart as he thinks he is.

It’s not fake news that dictators and totalitarian leaders throughout history have recognized the need to silence those who tell the truth. An honest media always poses the biggest threat to those who would misuse power.

The first step in controlling that media is to discredit it. I find it fascinating that we never heard of fake news until we got a fake leader. Coincidence? I think not.

Who are we to believe? The Liar-in-Chief is pathologically unable to tell the truth and changes his story every other day in spite of video evidence to the contrary. On the other side is the free press.

As for me, I am sticking with, and standing up for a free press. Their credibility has stood the test of time, and a free press is our best defense available against scoundrels, thieves and dictators like all those listed above. And right now, we need the best defense we can get.

If he isn’t on the golf course he’s in front of his mirror, only pausing long enough to tweet sophomoric statements demonstrating an ego in search of a brain. The #BLOTUS is more than a national embarrassment. He’s a true threat to the safety of the entire world.

as long as there is life…

We imagine that as soon as we are torn out of our habitual path all is over, but it is only the beginning of something new and good. As long as there is life, there is happiness. There is a great deal, a great deal before us."  — Leo Tolstoy (War and Peace):

The only constant in life is change. We’ve all heard that, but few of us have internalized it to the point where change is no longer threatening.

Embracing change rather than fearing it is the first step to understanding that our life is meant to be an adventure. Tolstoy has it absolutely correct. We need to live on the edge, always looking forward to the next opportunity to see and experience what is on the other side.

As long as we live we will be immersed in change. And that’s o.k. That’s as it should be. Accept it.

As Tolstoy reminds us, “As long as there is life, there is happiness.”  And that is the one thing that doesn’t change

why?

Today is a defining moment in the history of our nation. I have already cast my ballot for the next President of the United States. And if you have not voted, I urge you to go to the polls before the day is done.

The future of our nation is being determined by our actions today. I know the kind of country I long for, and I know the qualities and values I want to see in my President.

It is also exciting to think that we are again making history. We have had eight years of strong leadership with our nation’s first African American President. Now, we can hopefully look forward to having our first female President.

Today is the day. Please vote. Nothing else is as important. Whatever else you do today, vote.
