Forgive them Father, for They Know Not What Trump is Doing – OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on Updated on

Weary of Joe Scarborough’s insisting Trump is not the warped, but predictable extension of, Taft’s Little Brown Brothers, Hoover’s Hoovervilles, Eisenhower’s Dulles Brothers infestation, Nixon’s assault on Checks and Balances, Reagan’s Trickle-Down mistakes were made on the backs of hardworking Americans, and the endless war for more, brought to us by Cheney & Wolfowitz.

Conservatism has been America’s ball and chain since Conservatives in the Second Continental Congress forced Thomas Jefferson to strike from our Declaration of Independence the abolishment of slavery.

How long will Republicans lie to themselves about how much they’ve abandoned Abraham Lincoln’s preserve, protect and defend the United States of America, Gettysburg standard.

And, so it is still with Trey Gowdy and Jim Jordan.  The former spending over 7.8 million taxpayer dollars over two and a half years, for nothing – and the latter choosing to ignore pleas for help from molested children.

Why do Republicans re-elect the apocryphal, I’m not a crook?

Nonetheless, no reasonable person can believe the Democratic Party has been a consistent, or even honorable shield for, We the People, but its Center-Left lineup of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor & Elena Kagan, Bobby Kennedy, Bill & Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama reveal an evolution, more often than not, dedicated to an American Dream shared by all, regardless of skin color, sexual persuasion or even political party.

How long will Republicans defend the proposition of condemning those who fail to lock-step with Conservative sexual, religious and political mindset – while worshiping a president who violates women, isolates children and profanes all forms of religion, including Christianity?

How long will Liberals insist we were ever united or civil with each other – even after WWII yielded few Justice for All victories on the home-front?

Is it not yet clear that, while desperate to use White House as ATM for Trump Brand, our 45th president is 86ing American forward and upward progress using Stand-Up – proving, perhaps, the one thing he understands is, There’s No Business Like Showbusiness.

How often have, We the People elected smiles and rhetoric without integrity?

No, it’s not just Trump, and Republicans are not the only ones making misguided and unfortunate choices for who we vote to employ on behalf of family, friends and fellow human beings.  However, since that infamous down escalator ride, Conservatism has revealed the ugliest America can be.

It’s intentionally challenging to know when to let go, why to ever turn the other cheek, where to stand tall with, this far but no farther — and how peaceful assembly resistance saves us from becoming what we’re against.

Like the ACLU and Rutherford Institute, I stand with those who revere our Constitution, as not only a sacred document, but a breathing counselor mentoring us in an all-inclusive, Golden Rule.

11% of the American population, including my father and four of his brothers, answered the call to be, the Greatest Generation, defending and projecting the extensive values of our Democratic Republic, the United States of America – including, whether they realized it or not, children molested while Church and State adults remained inseparable in their silence.

When will Democrats, Independents and Republicans recognize that The Gettysburg Address, defines The American Dream, as the very antagonist to the U. S. Army reneging on promise of citizenship for serving an ungrateful nation.

With assistance from 2016 non-voters, Trump’s dictatorship envy, now secedes 40% of voting Americans – forming a confederacy of comrades so twisting our interpretation of Land of the Free, it has created a mock world dangerously colluding with altered mental states.

When will Conservatives and religious zealots recognize the real 2018 American making his triumphal entry into Jerusalem riding an over-sized pig, amidst mesmerized cheerleaders applauding his violation of their God and our Country?

Instinctively, I sometimes recoil from Trump, longing to nullify the collective antagonists to American progress – but refusing to settle for less than the ideals of Presidents Josiah Bartlett and Andrew Shepherd – I shake off any cloning of hate’s desire for revenge – because I never want to see, those who cheer and applaud an administration ridiculing the physically challenged, sexually harassed and children suffering without the comfort of parents, reflected in my mirror.

Do you?

Boldly Marching from Trump, Putin & NRA Darkness into The Light: OpEdNews.com Headlined

Posted on

Saturday 24 March 2018 is the day #BlackLivesMatter, #WomensMarch and the #NeverAgain #MarchForOurLives, united in common cause for the greater good of all Americans — not only to advance the change President Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Senator Robert F. Kennedy and President Barack Obama championed, but to reignite American Exceptionalism:  government of, by and for all of, We the People!

Unfortunately, after the Greatest Generation saved the world from those wishing to be our masters, too many Conservative Baby Boomers forgot why my father’s generation fought WWII.  Time and complacency whitewashed our 1950s with a perfect preamble for financial puppeteers to twist the Marshall Plan into their journey to undo President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Economic Bill of Rights and New Deal for all Americans – into the creation of an American master race.

Is it now more overhead camera shots, through snowy East Coast weather and foggy thinking — a West Coast police helicopter flyover targeting a lite up fence jumper in a hoodie — or is Trump’s White House diminishing our vision, international stature, to void empathy?

Nonetheless, snatching civic duty from the jaws of 60’s Dallas, Memphis and Los Angeles gun violence, our children have risen to the task of raising America out of the darkness of Cheney torture, NRA owned GOP and our 2016 elections.  Knocking at the door of change in Washington, DC, NYC, Miami, Boston, St Paul, Atlanta and Detroit, our pathway to unity, civility and reason is again shimmering with promise.

Reined in by special elections and American judicial system, some golf, scapegoating Pentagon with military Transgender discrimination.  Others elected to serve, elect to desert their responsibilities, before truth heard round the world, came to town from around the country.

With all due respect to all grieving parents of children lost to guns too easily accessible for violence — the change we need, comes from Millennials saving Generation Z by registering Millennials to vote – not in arming teachers, and certainly not in increasing school resource officers who handcuff and slam students to classroom floors.

If it weren’t so tragic, the unmitigated gall of anyone running for president to salvage his morally bankrupt Brand, claiming GOP and his ICE pick care about DACA would bring laughter and tears closer together than ever before.

So, after chasing Congress off The Hill, Trump out of Washington and Wayne LaPierre and Dana Loesch off camera, what’s next?

Do we demand greater transparent integrity from Facebook and all Social Media?

Do we increase the number of NRA members and GOP donors courageous enough to listen to those who inherit what Conservatives bequeath?

Do we reject religious hypocrisy, uniformed bigotry and political inaction spawned by ALEC & Koch Gerrymandering and Karl Rove GOP Red Mapping and roar, No More?!?

Will the golden silence of Emma Gonzalez seal our path forward – to save America’s life, in voting booths Tuesday 6 November 2018?

While the whole world watched, state and federal government, like NRA avarice, cowered off camera – believing, like the past, passion would evaporate before the 18th hole.

It won’t, but know this, while we cheer the speeches of students thrust by violence into #VoteThemOut, for the safety of an all-inclusive society — the demons of death for profit are not limited to the NRA, Red State Governors, Congress or the Trump Administration.

This destructive culture resides in corporate offices of American Financial Institutions and Boardrooms beyond Wall Street’s International Corporatism.  It thrives on city streets, in suburban neighborhoods and the rust belt.  It’s Putin poisons embedded in our electoral process aided and abetted by Right Wing corrupted election computers – feeding off the desperate for anything.

I’m a Baby Boomer and Veteran, who has for decades, longed for a resurrection of our 1960s spirit.  Finally, The Torch has been passed to a New Generation – again!

So, will we continue to allow those who allow arms extended by an AR-15 to silence youthful dreams, generational potential and senior fulfillment?

Or, will America if we can keep it challenge, and a Child Shall Lead Them protest marches transport us to higher voter turnout?

Because, that’s What Democracy Looks Like!
