Shame On A Failed President and Congress

I never thought I would see the death of America, I grew up with the view of an exceptional America, a giant force for Democracy and human rights.  A Democracy which spread the ability to solve the problems of poverty, disease, and over population.

I did not see the failure of these United States.  I did not see racism return.  I did not see an old, senile, racist, bigot, misogynist, crazy guy become president.  Never.

You might think the Congress would prevent the desecration of the Constitution by a dictator.  No.  The Congress is complicit in the destruction of America.  They are letting a mentally unstable man destroy the economy with a trade war and by stopping the inflow of taxes to support America.

The Congress is a failed branch of the government for allowing the filling of concentration camps, or internment camps, or gulags or reeducation camps.  Take your pick.  The man who wants to be Hitler or Stalin, is filling those despicable jails with people seeking asylum within the shell of what used to be the most important country in history.

#Resist can only carry us so far.  We must take back the Congress with this next election, otherwise there will be no more elections as the current Congress works to shred the Constitution.

Although I have been absent here, I have been busy elsewhere.  Life is good, and after reviewing everything FB has to share on me i am good to use it to communicate with those who use it to communicate to the world.

Some days are better than most.  Some days are what I do best, American Red Cross Disaster Services Disability Integration Regional Program Lead is my new world.  Being disabled (although I usually forget I am) allows me to understand what to do.  This position in the ARC is very important.

When a disaster strikes, and we know one will hit somewhere anytime all the time, we are there. We can have flood areas in Maryland and a forest fire in Colorado which brings the ARC to action.  Providing food and water to first responders; Providing cleanup kits and bleach to those working to make their homes safe again, we do what we can do where we can go.  And, there are the house or apartment fires we go to.  Life can be busy.

Whatever the disaster, ARC is there and I go to ensure those who need something are taken care of.
