Our Democracy

20170503_164915

Yes, I still love my country, but I don’t believe corruption should lay hidden simply because leaders carry the name, “conservative”.

Think they’re Prolife? Nah, pro life people don’t treat migrant children that way.

He’s been a con artist since Day 1, and you’d better start caring, because we all stand to lose……our precious democracy.

Battle Fatigue

20170503_164915

Well I admit it, I’ve been holding back. After all we’ve been through within the past two years with this president, I think we’re all burned out, trying to just survive our battle fatigue.

And that’s the biggest danger, that we will not care anymore. It doesn’t really matter does it, that he’s lied so much, that he hides his money, that he does seem to have obstructed justice a number of times, that he just wants to look good,

that the AG spun the report in a positive way, causing conservatives to do the happy dance, when in fact the report isn’t positive at all.

Another protector blocking attempts to find the truth simply because, he’s “conservative”.

But it does matter when people do wrong and try to get other people to do wrong too.

Did you know you don’t have to commit a crime to be impeached?

Yes eating chicken during a hearing is stupid, and inappropriate, but we need to protect our democracy,

not a politician who believes he is above the law, and that he should be able to do whatever he wants. Nah, we don’t need that.

Earth Day 2019

20160514_175724

And the sins of the fathers are being visited on us their children,

while the Earth continues to be ripped and torn,

I can’t help but think of the people lost,

swept away by storms,

from the changes in our air,

as dark clouds still gather

while ignorant bullies hide

their head in the sand,

lacking even a speck

of empathy.

How many more people

will be lost?

What Would He Say?

20170503_164915

If God himself came down to bring judgment on our nation what would He say to the rich attempting to remove healthcare from the poor?

Many with pre-existing conditions?

What would He say to leaders still putting brown children in cages?

What would He say to White Nationalists, some in government or even in media, continuing to spread hatred, inciting violence?

What would He say to leaders refusing to acknowledge the devastation of our climate changing, putting us all in danger and in harm’s way?

What would He say to a leader that lies about paying off women to keep quiet, about having sex with them?

And most of all what would he say to the people calling faith their home, as they bow down to their vulgar conservative idol, doing all they can to protect him, simply because he is called conservative?

What in heaven’s name would God say?

The Angels Know

20170628_172233

The angels know that slavery comes from the hearts evil men, not really from our southern border, and that drugs are shipped sneaking through our ports of entry, stamped with approval.

I wonder if heaven weeps over the poor….needing jobs, needing some food….needing to escape violence….

I sure hope so.

The Fortress

large-fort

It was snowing that night the wall was completed, not many noticed, tired of the fight.

Yet some conservatives rejoiced in their victory, believing the Enemy was defeated and that they could rest in their holiness once again.

However, the angels in Texas, bowed their heads with tears in their eyes,

began praying for all those stuck inside the Fortress, for those believing that somehow,

in some way, they were righteous, and so having turned their backs

on the poor.
