fighting for the enemy

Frightening, but TRUE!

At this point, this isn’t conjecture. It’s a fact. Our president will do anything necessary to protect Russia.

No one is allowed to attack Putin for any reason. Everything else is fair game. But, publicly  agree with all our intelligence agencies that Russia has, and is attacking the US on a regular basis, and you are gone, even if you retirement is just days away.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the #BLOTUS would defend the US instead of Russia?

how to spot a dictator

Not everyone likes the truth. And not everyone will admit that documented facts are real. And there are some among us who refuse to acknowledge reality, even as they are stepping in a big pile of it.

Having traveled to, and having worked in over 100 countries, many of them dictatorships, I know what dictators look like. I know how dictators act. I know how they speak. That is why I fear this new US administration.

This is not about Democrat vs. Republican or red vs. blue.  This is about the future of our country. I am not calling #BLOTUS a dictator. But, I am begging everyone to open their eyes and look at reality.

If it looks like a duck, if it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, there’s a better than average chance it’s not a kitten.

the anger of greatness

This quote by one of the greatest Presidents in our history says a great deal about our President elect. Sadly, it’s already obvious that not all our Presidents can be great leaders.

Explosive rants on Twitter in response to perceived, or even real,  personal insults is not the kind of anger that points to greatness. Uncontrolled outbursts of verbal abuse against those with whom you disagree is vindictive. It is the petty anger of smallness.

The anger of greatness is being furious at inequality and injustice, being incensed by bigotry and racism, seething at hunger in a world of plenty. The anger of greatness is the anger that leads to a better world for all.

I cannot see any such anger in our soon-to-be new President. He demonstrates plenty of anger. Sadly. it’s not the anger of greatness
