Without a vote
Is slavery –
That’s all she wrote.

    No basketball.
    A tiny ball
    is what he’ll hit
    against his wall.

    Who needs Russia dividing the country when we have the left wing media, two peas in a pod, both want the destruction of America,

    • Barbara Bollinger says

      You are so wrong. You are falling into the Russian trap of thinking the other side is your enemy. We all want the same things but have different ideas of getting them. Don’t let Russians make you hate Americans

    • Betty Benton says

      Obviously you haven’t been paying attention. Maybe it’s your anger and bias that has left you unawares of how, “the left,” as you so put it, is anti-Russian, anti-Putin, anti-hate and the magnitude of our grief at the division of our country. I don’t hate you, Allen but I fear you not only disagree with my politics but you hate me for my beliefs. Merry Christmas if that’s not what you celebrate, then Happy Holidays.

    Funny, that’s all I hear about the GOP.

    There is an inherently parental role to being president of the United States. The person holding that office is supposed to know more than we do about dangers facing the country and the world, and is entrusted with making the appropriate decisions to keep us safe and secure. The president is supposed to keep us from falling. What happens when the president is the biggest child in the room — any room? It upends the natural order of things as surely as if a child’s parents started throwing tantrums and talking like a second-grader.

    I’m not sure JOB has fully comprehended the damage being done by a president who misbehaves so frequently, it’s a news story when he doesn’t. Globally, the United States has lost its power, its aura of seriousness and decisiveness that once made autocrats hesitate before crossing us. Now we are a country that can’t seem to stand up to a ruler who orders the murder and dismemberment of a dissident who was a legal U.S. resident or call out Russia’s intrusion into America’s democratic process. Children know how to scream and sulk; they don’t know how to take control and restore order. They don’t know how to plot out a responsible position and then act on it. A child occupies the White House, and the world knows it.

    A friend’s young son thought it was really funny when the president called someone “Horseface.” He giggled when he saw the president on TV telling a reporter that her question was “stupid” and that all her questions are stupid. Nine-year-olds should be able to look up to the president of the United States, not feel that the president is one of them.

    Immaturity in adults has serious consequences. My friend the author Marianne Williamson once said, “Adults who behave like children do adult damage.” We’re starting to see some of that damage, most recently at the southern border. This president has slammed shut America’s door as loudly as a petulant child slams his bedroom door and shouts, “Go away.” The result is that thousands of migrants are living in squalid conditions just beyond the U.S. border, trying to keep babies from getting sick. This is adult damage, and there will be more.

    What will happen if the country faces serious danger? I was 10 years old in 1962 when President John F. Kennedy addressed the nation about the Cuban missile crisis. I remember sitting on the floor in my parents’ bedroom watching him on television. I remember asking my father if we would go to war. He replied, “I hope not. But the president is doing the right thing.” Kennedy’s somber confidence did make me a little less afraid. At the end of the speech, he said: “The cost of freedom is always high — but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose is the path of surrender or submission. Our goal is not the victory of might but the vindication of right.”

    Who would speak to the nation like that if global turmoil turned into a crisis that threatens America’s future?
