I had two of his books, and they were among my favorite with hilarious comments from children. Every time I read them, I couldn’t help but think of the tragic pathway he took that led him to such a project. And I think of the similarities in the stories of the history of the ancient Spanish Inquisition, and recent political history.
So many childish things are such great cardiovascular exercise. Jump rope, hula hooping, and even skipping will get your heart rate up and give you a very nice quick little exercise, but as adults we won’t do it out of fear of the harm it can do to our reputation. But you know what? Who cares?
Donald Trump is a traitor in my opinion. Yes, I mean that literally, and yes, I fear for what he is trying to do.
I find it hard to understand how anybody can still align themselves with the Republican party and still claim to be pro-American.
Even the word “news” implies the stories are “new”, so why are we still reading about ancient history? Let Trump disappear into obscurity, along with the Republican party and the congressional Republican representatives.
some of my Republican friends will think this post goes too far, but I’ve asked the question before, does the current incarnation of the Republican party truly represent your beliefs? When they throw around the word “Christian” and yet turn their backs on the needy, separate children from their parents and incite a resurrection, is this truly who you want to be? As they suppress the voice of voters, is that who you want to back? As they put partisan politics above accountability, can you really support that?
One might argue that 20%, which is a dramatic minority, who realize that the president is culpable for the insurrection do not deserve to be characterized in such a harsh manner. The flip side of this argument, though, is to ask, quite simply, where have they been?
Trump, from very early in his administration, has shown disdain for international treaties, having walked away from the Iran treaty on nuclear development, the SALT II treaty on development of nuclear weapons and most recently the open skies treaty to permit oversight of military buildup and troop movement. The argument for the “Space Force” is that it is for peaceful purposes only, and therefore the claim is that it is not a violation of the Outer Space Treaty. Unfortunately, other nations may not see it that way.
four years ago, it was Clinton supporters feeling that anxiety and fear for the future, and back then, it was a majority of Americans since Hillary won the popular vote.
The talks leading to this treaty did not include nor was in endorsed by the Afghanistan government continuing a three-year trend we had already seen in this administration wherein talks with our enemies are favored over allies.
