American Beauty and the Beasts – Headlined on OpEdNews.com

Posted on

Beware, media fixating public on bull in a china shop gesticulating middle finger to world community, risks reelections of America’s historic beasts.  Yet, while Gerrymandering and Donald Trump dispel decency, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Bear Tavern 5th graders mirror American beauty.

That our 45th isn’t a presidential fit preferred by most, is less horrific than allowing him to enter us in a race against ourselves, denigrating the educational achievements of Africans, Hattians whose courageous ancestors helped transfer us from European tyranny to our Land of the Free Exceptionalism, and Puerto Ricans who, while not William Howard Taft’s Little Brown Brothers, were nonetheless invaded into American WWI conscription.

Narrowing POVs, myopic jargon and oblivious tweets are a colossal misuse of life limited by weather extremes, Food Deserts, Flint Water and halfhearted renewable energy prep.

Nonetheless, unless we fail to vote ourselves outside the box where Conservatism and Corporatism build our future on sand, we will again be the masters of our soul — with this caveat:  if we persist in wallowing in the avalanche of 21st century Republicanism, We the People could collude in a PAC with the devil, instead of being the beauty all life on earth would lovingly embrace, for a morsel of respect.

So, shaking off forever, the dust of gender inequality, income disparity, Rainforest destruction and animal slaughter for sport, let us cleanse the racist excrement smeared on our Statue of Liberty heritage, by a Jim Crow immigration ethos.

It’s not just opportunists appointed to ignore American international history, lacking any appreciation for the sacrifice of tens of thousands of female-American, LGBTQ-American, Muslim-American, African-American, Asian-American, Latino-American and Native-American citizens who preserve, protect and defend all, including Caucasians. It’s unseen brokers hedging anti-American bets.

From Estcourt Station Maine to San Diego California, Americans deserve better than a Pilate president washing his hands of American protectorates/territories.  Our beauty is being both Good Samaritans and Good Stewards:

  • First-responders to Domestic Terrorism
  • Firefighters conquering city & forest fires
  • Volunteers rebuilding Texas and Florida post Harvey and Irma – still insisting on more than a neophyte’s bread toss response to the punishing Maria aftermath in Puerto Rico – while beasts expose us to offshore drilling perils for profit

In sharp contrast, countless nurses & caregivers, teachers & social workers, parents & police, doctors & lawyers, military families — even some bankers and lobbyists, who sacrifice daily to uplift, heal and untether us from our sometimes-beastly past, revealing an enlightened harmonious future – many, bearing little resemblance to our paleface Founding Fathers’ gender or sexual persuasion.

Still America, beware corporate, religious and political magicians who pledge to turn us against each other, disappearing both our beauty and prestige, like Walmart publicly proclaiming its new $11.00 minimum wage while quietly firing employees; NOW Television CEO, Pastor Mark Burns whitewashing the darkness shaming American diplomacy and Sarah Huckabee-Sanders selling her soul for those devoid of empathy.

Believing Trump is America’s only elected beast is what fuels the imbalance between, our past good & current ugliness, harassment and the harassed and our habitual tendency to lockstep with short-term memory.

October 1962, on the brink of Nuclear War with Soviet Union, President Kennedy’s primary concern, for thirteen days:  a chain of command miscalculation.  January 2018, for thirty-eight minutes, Hawaii experienced a nuclear miscalculation – still believing duck and cover saves us from nuclear holocaust.

Calling out foreign hackers and domestic hucksters attempting a hoax on our reason, will vanquish foes to America’s diverse beauty and expose corporate and congressional self-aggrandizement for the treason it is.

A giving character aligns us with the integrity of all life on earth, thus preventing America’s destruction by the braggadocios and morally bankrupt.  Racism, sexism and refusal to progress forward, are the beasts that threaten our epiphany, haunt our good deeds and deplete our finite existence.

Second class citizenship is a man-made infection staining places of employment from migrant workers to Wall Street suites.  However, even when losing our way to disarray, disgrace and deception, a #TimesUp and #MeToo duo ushers in our ethical climate change — where women are valued, and men listen.

Once again Beauty warns, it’s not the beast without, but within, we need purge.

It’s Not About Trump – It’s About USa!

Posted on

Despite Trump’s disdainful U-Turn toward 1860, since 1960, albeit with the inconsistency of a pendulum lost to the possibility of being centered – we’ve crawled wounded by assassinations, then walked on the moon, now encoring our, one brief shining moment, we support more progressive Americans in doing our best to be our brightest in replacing malice toward anyone in The Land of the Free, with charity, justice and equality for all.

Our Statue of Liberty torch is once again passed to a new generation of Americans, reborn out of a Great Recession induced by the enablers of, Donald Trump and family.

However, it’s much too soon to be drowned, surfing 2018 expectations of Blue Waves.  Thanks to the creators of Trump, not trusting corporate owned media polls predicting landslide victories and taking voters for granted is a 2016 lesson learned – remembering, Nixon’s landslide re-election during the 1972 Watergate investigation.

With Trump support, splintered grassroot energy is blossoming into the wisdom of our feminine side, but non-voters beware, elections are no more a spectator’s sport, than keeping our Democratic Republic from slipping through Twitter thumbs and Youtube videos.

Surprised faces, on Trump and Pence, at the end of hacked campaign days, Tuesday 8 November 2016, shocked our overdue gender equality into rippling muscular brain power, ready, willing and able to weigh the anchored weight of Conservatism’s self-serving philosophic quagmire of old males like, Orrin Hatch, Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell.  Our Mission?  Expedite exit of such as these, into the shadow of a fool’s gold parachute.

Invigorated by trumped men, we reinvest ourselves to a higher path.  Having reacquired our spirit of 1776 giants, we now emerge ever closer to filling the shoes of all-inclusive icons — progressive geniuses with the courage, even in the face of hanging together, to launch a new birth of freedom:  American Exceptionalism.

Because of Trump, we shall overcome hackers manipulating our elections, the dangers to democracy from our paperless electoral system, the bargain between the good, bad & ugly of life-time judicial appointments, an Electoral College no longer immune to mob-rule – and, the K.I.S.S. of shaking things up.

With a trumped administration, threatening not only the undoing of an Obama legacy, but the heritage of our American Experiment, We the People, though descendants of shameless Thanksgiving thieves, stealing from America’s original native culture — like any unvarnished work-in-progress, rarely lunging forward – we now progress arbitrating with the few who prefer to anchor us in, What is Past is Prologue.

With the rise of immoral leadership trolling us into an all-time low for our nation of immigrant descendants, forgotten truth looms reincarnated, inviting our reaffirmation:

  • The Emancipation Proclamation
  • 19th Amendment awaiting ratification of our Equal Rights Amendment
  • I have a Dream
  • The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die

embracing anew this fact of faith in ourselves:  almost 2.9 million more voters chose a female Democrat in our last presidential election.

A waring Trump is best defeated with positive acclamation:  Those, who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.  Changing minds, like the long arm of the law, catch up with nuclear button size bravado, saving us from men needing to compensate.

It’s not a money-grabbing president’s crude personality nor smug mental dullness of a UN Ambassador.  It’s the fire and fury motivation of seventeen last minute appointments of state prosecutors, that is potentially an obstruction of justice.

It’s a golfer-in-Chief, emulating the authoritarian governments of Egypt, Libya, Poland, Hungary, Thailand, Somalia, China and Turkey (whose bodyguards attacked peaceful American protesters on American soil) that demands we vote to reset America’s democratic course.

It’s about, bought and paid for Czars of treason, eroding America with quiet domestic terrorism, and a White House abdicating America to, seizing the moment Xi Jinping and Drain the Swamp originator, Putin.

It’s about embracing our flaws so closely, they suffocate, because changing our minds and ourselves is America’s DNA.

We Resist, Persist and are Indivisible, not so we can ban the trumped, but in harmony, be the hope in Casablanca’s battling National Anthems that subdues the war with our fears.
