New post on The Octogenarians

Thanatos & Destruido

by daedal2207
There appears to be a race going on between the moral and structural disintegration of the country and the destruction of Trump's administration.Voices are being raised nationwide expressing some kind of dissatisfaction.Health care and the ACA as an resiss double talk.The nation is alarmed by indications of collaboration between the Trump campaign and Putin's Russia with promises made to undo sanctions imposed by President Obama and likely to be maintained if not expanded by Hillary Clinton.While party loyalty determines action nothing will be done, but true patriotism is beginning to appear in Republican ranks.People like McCain and Linsey Graham will not let this alone nor the Senate Ethic committee leader from Utah.
The ban on Muslims will not subside as an issue.Academics are abandoning their ivory towers to band together to protect their sciences.How much damage can be done by even a temporary ban? Of course if the reason for the ban can be identified as involving religious discrimination then constitutionality as an issue will doom it.
Rachel Maddow raises a rumor that Putin is giving Edward Snowden back as a " gift".Hopefully unfounded but with everything else unraveling Snowden would be a hair all of a gift!!

  1. Although a great many people disagree with me, I see Edward Snowden as more of a patriot than many of the false patriots who are paraded before us. Is killing what makes us worthy of being a patriot?

    "Patriots always talk of dying for their country and never of killing for their country." ~ Bertrand Russell

    When people protest against the wrongs committed on our behalf as a nation, they are viewed as traitors. Who is really more patriotic?

    "The highest patriotism is not a blind acceptance of official policy, but a love of one's country deep enough to call her to a higher standard." ~ George McGovern
