I am ashamed to be American today. Every time I think the president has sunk to the lowest possible level, he surprises me yet again. His open adoration of tyrants and dictators, bullies all, smacks of the deepest form of cowardice. He would wet his pants if any of these men came after him with an unspoken threat of killing on their mind. I suppose he has been an enabler all of his life, kowtowing to the tyrants among us. He would have loved Adolph, Joseph or Benito. They would have tested him every day and one stumble would have gotten him a piano wire necktie.
Apparently journalists no longer have value or serve any purpose in this world, the gospel according to the Donald. Mr. Khashoggi’s brutal massacre is just fine with us because we love the Saudi’s money. They love our guns. Perhaps journalists will still be around when the Saudi’s turn those guns (or oil) against us? Because they will. I hope there will be someone left to tell the tale.
However, life goes on in Colville, Wa. Fortunately it requires very little of changing the world or even fixing a few important things. I’m not up to that chore and how nice it is to know it is not required of me. Autumn seems to have brought me feeling of utter fatigue. Perhaps it is depression. Maybe fear for the up coming election plays part. Maybe I am just old and resentful of 90+year old runners, yoga teachers and RBG who gets it done everyday.
I hope the president keeps his mouth shut for a day or two. May his Twitter account get hacked and silenced. May his golf game suffer greatly and all of his balls fall in the rough. I hope Melania takes a lover and DJT,Jr. decides to be his own man. May VP Pendeo be frozen with that adoring look of worship forever in place.
May I shut up and grow up while I am about it. lol
