» Eddie Glaude Speaks Bluntly on Racism in America

One of the things that made me feel happy .. was this statement made by Eddie Glaude. He is a professor of African American Studies at Princeton.

The mere fact that a a black man is speaking aloud these words on television .. this a big deal.

Eddie Glaude says America likes to tell itself myths and fables about our inherent goodness in order to hide our dark secrets so we can maintain a willful ignorance that protects our innocence. (7 Aug 2019)

You almost can't believe what your ears are hearing. In the grand scheme of things, this is a big deal.

» Feeling Habakkuk and his Complaint

There is much ugliness there. So much of it that I could feel Habakkuk when he wrote to God. (Rad paraphrase.)

"Why are you making see all this nasty shit? .. where nasty fuckheads trick-fuck good people and then get away with it.

"This shit has been going on for so long now, and it shows no signs of abating any time soon."

"Justice is a joke .. a bad joke. How are you tolerating this?"

It is just a sad state of affairs that our government has become.

This is heartbreaking. Such a little girl.

» Whatever has Happened to the Republican Moral Compass Under Trump?

Coffee Joe also called out the Republicans for repeatedly lacking the moral courage to stand up to Trump's blatant and overt racism.

President Trump identifies with and defends hate groups in America

He took the side of a black man and publicly called out Trump in Elijah's defense. This made me think of what Marshall did here.

This is where you separate the men from the boys. This is where you separate those with a moral backbone from the moral invertebrates .. from those who shrink back in fear at the idea of confronting Trump's nakedly racist rhetoric.

» There is a Reason Why They're Called » Hate Crimes

I bet that Beto knows exactly what I am talking about here.

Beto O'Rourke says that Trump is actively promoting the racism that has led to the deaths in El Paso (4 Aug 2019)

This is why I included an image-link to this video where Coffee Joe poses the question » "Whose side are you on?" .. way back on Page One here.

I clearly remember the Way that the Boss was working that racist angle.

» Witnessing the Rise of Naked Racism as a Defining Political Strategy

There is some very dark shit going on in America today. And so much of it, too. Things that people never thought they would see in modern-day America ..

» The Unfolding of a National Moral Crisis

I bet that Brittney and Mara and Melissa know the national moral crisis that I am talking about.

Mara (center) says that this is the time to speak out and tell America what your values are .. and to stand up for your fellow citizen (29 July 2019).

» Mayor Pete's Impressive Bravery

It is off-topic for this page, but on the subject of being struck by bravery .. this thing by "Mayor Pete" ..

.. I dont care who you are, or how brave you might be .. that is not easy to do. You almost can't believe your own ears.

» My Experience has been that Gays are Typically More Compassionate Human Beings with a Better Moral Compass

I have said it before, and I will say it again .. it has been my experience that your average gay person is simply a better human being, with a better moral compass ..

.. than the average polite social Christian that you might happen to encounter on the street.

Susan Cottrell knows what I am talking about. Anderson knows what I am talking about.

Anderson says that even pretending to care about another human being who has suffered wounds that Trump himself has long been encouraging .. even this was too much for Trump. Me Me Me Trump. (8 Aug 2019)

For example, check out Don Lemon's interview here of 2020 Presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg .. regarding the issue of tackling racial inequality (28 June 2019).

Compare their conversation with that of Jake Corman here.

What a dick .. trying to take away what little the poor have.

I wonder what the Apostles think of Jake the Dick.

I can guarantee you that Jake is not gay. He makes my point for me.

Thank-you, Jake. Thank-you for making my point for me.

Dude, you need to chill the fuck out. Take a yoga class or something. Try some deep-breathing exercises. You're obviously wound way too tight.

It surprises me how vigorously you fight to take away what little the poor have.

You must want very badly to take away what little the poor have .. it seems obvious to everyone.

What happened to your soul?

» You Need to Take a Long, Hard Look in the Mirror, Ben

Perhaps if you werent so busy writing books that criticize the shortcomings of the youth .. and telling them how they need to develop moral character and intestinal fortitude ..

.. then maybe you might be able to focus better on your job, and deal better with your own character defects and your own professional shortcomings.

Walter Dellinger doesnt know how they are able to look themselves in the mirror (10 April 2019)

This is why Trump feels like he is above the law .. because of spineless senators like you, who are too scared to stand up to him when he flouts the rule-of-law and shows disdain for the Constitution by wiping his ass with it.

Speaking of spineless politicians .. Ben Sasse likes to criticize the shortcomings of the youth .. but he has yet to grow a constitutional spine and stand up to Trump's executive overreach.

Ben Sasse likes to criticize the shortcomings of the youth, but he has yet to grow a constitutional spine (14 March 2019).

This is what senators are supposed to do, Ben. They are supposed to act as a check and a balance on executive overreach.

This is how the Constitution was designed to operate .. to thwart to corrupting effects of power.

I know that you know this, Ben .. because I know that you call yourself (at t=1:20) a constitutional conservative.

All that you need to do now is to grow a spine .. a constitutional spine .. and stop abdicating your constitutional responsibility.

» Show Me the Moral Excellence

Next time you see Mike Pence, ask him what he thinks about his boss being a gigantic tax cheat. Ask him how that sits with his values .. with his sense of moral excellence. With his sense of right-n-wrong.

How does that sit with his sense of patriotism?

Trump says about Pence: 'I dont question his loyalty at all.' (17 Nov 2018)

Ask him about the condition of the planet that is being left to our children.

Because neither he nor his boss seem to be the least bit concerned.

When I saw Trump hold up the executive order after signing it ..

.. when I saw him hold up that executive order .. the voice in my head said, "His foot has slipped. The day of his calamity is near."
