she’s from another country…

There are far too many who no longer believe in the promises of Lady Liberty. They would be pleased to banish her and her values of caring, compassion and love for the downtrodden, poor and hungry.

I, for one, love her and her promises. I deplore our xenophobic racism. our selfishness, and our apathetic response to the growing hatred, fear, anger and ugliness of our culture.

I may be in the minority, but I want to help hold her torch higher and make it shine brighter. Working together I think we can make it happen. What do you want?

let’s not pretend…

Oops too late (Post-Election Poll Jump For trump - 54% of Americans think trump will succeed as president, and trump gets all-time high likability rating of 47%, up about ten points from pre-election . What's the matter with America????):

A follow-up to yesterday’s post, this powerfully direct statement by Eugene Robinson is a plea for all of us to stand up to the intentional destruction of common decency that the election of the #BLOTUS represents. The open misogyny, ugliness, and vindictive behavior of those in power should  never be normalized.

No person, especially the President of the United States, deserves respect when basic human decency seems to be a foreign concept to them. Leadership requires far more than wealth and power.

When children act inappropriately we are quick to teach them how to behave properly. Isn’t it time we do the same with the leader of the free world?
