Regardless what Conservative Republicans or their Mercer/Koch updates of rich Uncle Pennybags proclaim – life on earth is diminished by manufacturers, from Mustard Gas to E-Cigarettes and Opioids, America’s Greatest Generation, Baby Boomers, over consumerism – and with or without their heads buried in the concrete of Wall Street glittering sand, all who pay more attention to Social Media Likes than, the climate calamity Fossil Fuels, oil and gas producers have bequeathed our children.

Most human inhabitants of earth perceive individual survival as undeniably enhanced by, make just someone happy procreation, that leaves a better world for those who follow, perhaps thinking, then my living shall not be in vain.

However, images of Mars dancing in the heads of some at the top of the food chain, increase sales of, doomsday bunkers in New Zealand, believing, like our 45th, the grass will forever be greener in Greenland?

Albeit, revisionist descendants of America’s Gilded Age of Robber Barons and Captains of Industry’s democratizing of slavery between our Civil War and WWI, continues today in the subjugation of women, ignoring children and oppressing the, have-nots of every color, race and creed.

America’s been a nation of gentlemen, revering women and protecting children, is arguably, second only to the lies from Trump family malfeasance, the greatest dishonesty Americans have self-inflicted.

Trump did not cause Climate Change, nor the death of three billion birds since 1950, but his:

  • America First MAGA
  • Lying to coal miners
  • Caging of refugees
  • Trading off livelihood of farmers
  • Betraying NATO
  • Purchasing women for twisted, misogyny
  • Rewarding wealthiest, tax cuts
  • Allowing more insecticides that kill bees
  • Refusing to allow states to limit car emissions while sending troops to protect murderous oil suppliers
  • Disdaining human life in less fortunate countries – most recently, anti-Paul Manafort Ukrainians
  • Deserting military school children to wall out Mexico
  • Castrating Congressional oversight
  • Decapitating our Executive Branch with unconfirmed Acting heads and lackey Attorney General ignoring America’s rule of law

Pence, McConnell and Trump have proven they are the least likely to do anything about gun violence, mass shootings, female constitutional equality and Climate Change threatening our children’s future – but increasingly support the real possibility that they are a treasonous trio threat to the United States of America, they swore to, preserve, protect and defend.

Now we can continue color coding each other, thinking Trump will rationally embrace the patriotism of a peaceful transfer of presidential power, after amassing tens of thousands of worshipers who believe the Second Amendment is divine permission to stock their cellars with weapons of mass destruction – not to mention, Trump could lose by five million votes and still win in 2020 – or like Greta Thunberg practice, a child Shall Lead Them.

The failure is not in our Founders, nor just embedded in Republican Governors, State Legislators and U. S. Senators confirming, silence is consent.  It lives also, in we the over forty crowd, who’ve forgotten, it’s not what we fight against, but who we fight for that saves us all.

22 September 1862 Lincoln issued Emancipation Proclamation. 21 January 2017 unprecedented numbers joined The Women’s March.  6 November 2018 women resurrected our House of Representatives.  20 September 2019 millions merged in youth-led climate strike marches in 150 countries.

Now is a good time to distinguish ourselves from Trump’s clan deserting earth’s stewardship:

  • Brush up your Shakespeare
  • Transform earbud hearing damaging disconnect with Subliminal Brain Power waves
  • Watch more Climate Change, Political, Cultural and Historical Documentaries for game changing guidance
  • Google ancient scribes and anonymous proverbs instead of expecting answers from politicians and Snap-Chat

From my father and I watching old movies on black & white TV, I absorbed the truth of, behind every great man is a great woman.

Living with a soap opera writer and her precocious six-year-old, reinforced my faith in, always listen to the children. 

This is no Kumbaya.  This is suppressed humanity unearthed by the power of, women and children first!

The next time you hear, one person or vote, can’t make a difference, list Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Malala, Emma González, Cokie Roberts, Elizabeth Warren and Zero Hour Founder, Jamie Margolin.

True, it may be too late to completely reverse the already visible coming onslaught resulting from Climate Change deniers, but as twenty-something, executive producer of, The Age of Consequences said, while we can’t yet imagine what can be done to save us from Abrupt Climate Change, every potential calamity faced by humankind, was faced not knowing how we would conquer it, until we did.

America’s exceptional power isn’t found in murderous hand-held weapons, but in thought-provoking daydreams of safe environments – filled with the courage to share this heartfelt vision with all life on earth – dedicating every precious moment of time, in harmony with each other, passionately pursue a life of excellence.

On America’s 243rd birthday, can all Americans prove, in unity, if not civility, that our individual character defines us, obeying our Constitution’s laws makes us exceptional and Justice for All equals National Security.

Our military, nation’s capital and sacred Lincoln Memorial were not transformed into a political event footnote, until our Trump led by the nose Media, aided and abetted by our undivided attention, cast it so.

We are the wind beneath Trump’s GOP wings, rocket-firing his flight of fantasy by fulfilling his most ardent individualized American Dream:  dominating every news cycle.

To save an America made in Trump’s own image, we need, by example, to help all to see the wisdom and self-preservation of, love thy neighbor as thyself – even those for whom, pursuit of happiness remains separating and caging asylum seeking families – and stop expecting someone to listen after we call them stupid.

When the last rockets’ red glare yields to darkness and the last ferociously expensive ego tank display has returned to its rational place, perhaps we will realize how thankful we should be to Donald Trump, his offspring, son-in-law Jared, bankers Deutsche & John Mercer and his comrades, Mitch McConnell and Vladimir Putin.  For without the special brand of patriotism of the trumped, we might still be living under the delusion that our U. S, Constitution, like the World Trade Towers, is an implacable, indestructible diamond rock of Gibraltar – insulated from all harm, foreign or domestic.

However, with Trump’s image replacing Lincoln’s as our national reflection, reason and character profaned by our 45th now reduces American institutions to footstools, vulnerable to our enemies within.

A people mesmerized from sea to shining sea, by torrential texts, towering tweets and insidious instant grams of nonsense worthy of talking heads, weakens our power to perceive the difference between truth and reality show pretense.

America’s education, communication and debating skills have been so debased that the vast majority of Americans unquestioningly believe every utterance of Corporatism’s ads for over consumerism, Mark Zuckerberg’s conjured Boost-it numbers con and thinking a narcissistic reality show host has any intention of letting go of the greatest gig he’s ever fallen into – certainly not after he’s ordered, received and rehearsed for a military show of force around the exterior of our 1600 Pennsylvania Ave property.

In our 243rd year, it’s about time, and how we deal with the timing of past due consequences:  some as old as sexism and racism, others evolving as immigration and Opioid addiction – and some threatening the very life of our planet, as Trump threatens our legal foundation, calling, time out on obeying a federal court order while displaying a not so veiled threat of how easy making America Marshall Law again, could be.

Our Constitutional crisis is that our Constitution is in crisis – and all it took, was, blind obedience to one apathetic ruthlessly unethical man – being the natural outcome of a GOP evolving from Lincoln’s greatness to grandfathering grotesque gerrymandering corruption to make America as unrecognizable as it was, 28 June 1969.

On America’s 243rd birthday, with a birther belching bogus battle stations, with buffoonery besieging Lincoln’s reflection with tanks, invigorating MAGA with, Viable and Possible Census discrimination, our next wish had best be for recapturing mental stability.

We owe our country the birthday present of a, cease and desist order for both arguing about and cheering for, the wrong things – for doing so, we are the wind beneath the wings determined to whitewash our power to be decent human beings:  a Military Industrial Complex mudslinging our Land of the Free, back to Betsy Ross’ Stars and Stripes – forever.

No matter who said what Sinclair Lewis thought, on 4 July 2019, Donald Trump and comrades celebrated, Fascism coming to America, wrapped in the flag.

How long simple ones will you love simplicity?  How long will mockers delight themselves in mockery – and fools hate knowledge?

Most are aware of Trump’s idolatry for Hotpicks:  anti-democratic strongmen, whose anti-humane treatment of scientists in the land of Putin prompted Americans to organize, during America’s 200th birthday year, as the Helsinki Watch, forty-three years before our USDA scientists would need its watchful eye, and a media to, snap out of it, and help preserve, protect and defend curiosity, empathy and knowledge from a president incapable of recognizing that his duty and our honor would be better served if he lavished as much brotherly love on our southern border as he does on Kim Jong Un’s.

Birthdays are a good time for self-reflection, particularly for those still willing to maintain Trump’s grip on America’s nuclear war power.

Proclaim this:  Impeachment isn’t enough – Trump/Pence and members of their Acting Administration, not being, Too Big to Fail – need to go to jail.
