The End of an Error
Author: BobR    Date: 2021-01-20 13:00:00

Four years ago, our country (and the rest of world) was tilted on its axis. The keys to the most powerful office in the world were handed over to an immature, incompetent, narcissistic psycho who proceeded to destroy every norm we have held for decades. The term "bully pulpit" has rarely been so literal. It quickly became clear that the office didn't change him, and - in fact - he changed the office (at least temporarily) to match his petulant vengeful personality disorders.

We Will Prevail
Author: Raine    Date: 01/18/2021 14:00:19

"Three major evils—the evil of racism, the evil of poverty, and the evil of war. These are the three things that I want to deal with today. Now let us turn first to the evil of racism. There can be no gainsaying of the fact that racism is still alive all over America. Racial injustice is still the Negro’s burden and America’s shame. And we must face the hard fact that many Americans would like to have a nation which is a democracy for white Americans but simultaneously a dictatorship over black Americans. We must face the fact that we still have much to do in the area of race relations".

Thanks for Everything or Covfefe Away!

It’s a sad day in America. President Trump ™ a man who clearly won a second term, has bravely decided to unite our country, and will allow Lyin’ Biden to occupy the white house. Even though everybody says that he won the election, this benevolent and altruistic man is leaving Americans with a booming economy for Wall Street, a Greater than Great Border Wall, a spiffy new Military branch which will build a tremendous border wall in space, zero trade deficit and of course, having won the most votes by any person in any election at any time in the world – TWICE!

Only the Tip of the iceberg
Author: Raine    Date: 01/14/2021 14:02:38

I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around the events of last week. I wax and wane from anger, sorrow, shock, and disbelief. The level of hatred and depravity from this seditious mob and the individuals who participated is almost incomprehensible.

Truth and Consequences
Author: BobR    Date: 01/13/2021 14:23:16

When then-candidate tRump threw his hat in the ring in 2015, it seemed like a joke. There was no way he could get the nomination, right?... and that became "there's no way he can win in the General, right?"... which - sadly - became "there's no way he'll last 4 years, right?". We'll see about that last one, but a few days off the total would - at this point - be merely symbolic.

Ah yes - we were all so young and innocent in those days. We had not yet experienced the horror show that was to be unleashed upon the USA and the world. It should not have been a surprise. Gingrich and his list of words to demonize the Democrats set the tone shift from policy differences to character assassination. This continued on up through the Bush administration and McConnell as Senate Majority Leader.

Caught in the moment, just following orders.
Author: Raine    Date: 01/11/2021 13:56:36

Not all Germans were Nazis. Those who weren't suffered by the regime. The entire world ultimately still bears the scars of the evil they forced upon the world. Those who say "I got caught up in the moment" last Wednesday, have no defense for the evil they thrusted upon this country and the world.
