Loose the Hounds!

I am only 70 years old, but I have to say that never, let me repeat that, NEVER have I seen any politician whine as much as the #BLOTUS. He is a spoiled, petulant brat that has never grown up.

He lies about the lies he lied to cover up the lies he lied about the lies. Then he whines about fake news and witch hunts.

All his ill-gotten wealth cannot buy enough lawyers to keep him out of the sights of all the investigators on his slimy trail. He is close to being treed by the hounds of justice.

real leaders don’t need titles

Real leaders demonstrate their vision, their plans, their commitment and their power, through action. They consistently work to empower those around them through encouragement, coaching and positive reinforcement. Real leaders are definitely not perfect, but they are always committed to making a positive difference in the world and for the world.

Then there are others, like the #BLOTUS, who just seek power to enrich themselves. Their vision extends only as far as their mirrors and their checkbooks. Fake leaders are easily recognized by their whining, their sensitivity to criticism, and their pathological inability to accept responsibility.

No one is obliged to follow a fake leader. No one is required to respect a fake leader.

The good news is that there are real leaders who care and are willing to make a real difference. They are the ones who provide true hope for the future of our world.

We can ignore the fake leaders. Their is hope. All we need to do is to follow the real leaders.

fiddling while the world burns!

“If your house is on fire, you don’t comfort yourself with the thought that houses have been catching fire for thousands of years. You don’t sit idly back and think, ‘Oh well, that is the way of nature.’ You get going, immediately. And you don’t spring into action because of an idealistic notion that houses deserve to be saved. You do it because if you don’t, you won’t have a place to live.”

We have a president that ignores and dismisses anything that is not profitable to himself in some way or another. His entire focus is power and wealth. But like most men wrapped up in themselves, he is a disgustingly small package.

At a time in history when climate change demands strong, determined action from global leaders, the #BLOTUS, thumbs his nose at science and turns his back on responsibility. He has bet the devil his fiddle of gold won’t melt in the fire. Then the little man paused, smirked, and said, ” to hell with the rest of them.”

could there be a greater difference?

This is why I continue to be amazed, confused, and just totally dismayed by the huge numbers of those professing to follow Jesus that actually voted for the #BLOTUS and still support him. Anyone who is seeking to demonstrate the love of Christ, cannot possibly think that this man reflects anything other than the complete and total repudiation of all that Christ is and that He teaches.

The values of Drumpf are not Christian values. The #BLOTUS does not demonstrate any of the values taught by Jesus. Those ignoring these facts need to seriously reflect on just how shallow their spirituality must be to defend and support such a man.

get informed. get angry. get involved.

How can anyone support America paying tax subsidies or giving hand-outs to oil companies that pay ZERO taxes and NOT support  subsidizing the poor, hungry people in America.:

How is it that we do not have the financial resources to provide relief for the most vulnerable among us, but we always have the means to subsidize our largest and most profitable corporations? The answer is not that difficult. In fact, it is fairly straightforward.

It’s about wealth and greed. It’s about what we value, and it’s about our political leaders feathering their own nests. It’s about not caring enough to get involved.

And when we continue to elect leaders who vote for allowing millions of our citizens to be stalked by hunger, we need to be honest with ourselves. We are complicit.
