"The Golden Rule" ~ The man with the gold makes the rules!
Seems that all the faith-shackled and agenda driven Republicans see are commodities to be exploited and consumed as fast as possible - though no one has a clue what we are in such a damned rush to achieve.
For me the heart break of the past two months of lost opportunities to make a decisive stand, leaves me feeling bleak as ever. America has voted (citizens who didn't vote, also voted!!!) and its a resounding endorsement of the Golden Rule - The man with the gold, makes the rules.
America appears to have evolved into a nation who is okay with that attitude. After all, too much has never been enough for us. We live on a daily media diet of obsessive love for Hollywood's explosive insanity played out in a parade of "thriller" movies who's gross sales are tracked in hundreds of millions of dollars and followed in headline news like the horse races used to be - at the same time scientists are scrambling for funding to study this home planet that we depend on for everything, at fractions of the cost of a cheap movie, while having to endure malicious dirty tricks.
From what I'm seeing the majority of liberal types have again retracted into their own communities to tut-tut all the avericious people being put into really impactful positions of near supreme power. Oh yeah, we gave away the Supreme Court too. Holding protests that usually only impress each other, since they rarely convey a clear policy strategy or achievable goal to follow up on. Something that's symptomatic of Democrats' tendency to grossly underestimate their political opponents. Liberals seem to ignore that Trump and gang couldn't care less what we think, they are getting the keys to the kingdom, with the military tossed in for good measure. We need to do more.
Senators and Representative need to hear from tens and hundreds of thousands of citizens. If everyone who takes to the streets these next days also commits to get and remain informed and to call or write their US and state Representatives - now that would make an impression! But, then you'll have to do it again, and again, again over the next 2 and 4 years.
