News

 

News that our government is telling us lies on a regular basis is, well … not really news. Anyone who lived through the days of Watergate and the subsequent resignation of President Nixon should be able to understand that. Lest you think me too partisan in my criticism, I will also mention the rhetoric that “all is well and we are winning the war in Vietnam” that come out of the Johnson Whitehouse ranks among the most bitter of all lies we have been fed from those in power.

What is news is that we have never witnessed such vitriolic hatred spewed forth in a stream of consciousness from the mouth of the very person elected to lead us.

 

Trump’s lies are inexcusable and the fact that the New York Times is keeping a running tally of his record of untruth is deplorable by even the most convservative of standards.

 

It is dangerous, I think – to the point of putting our very Democracy at risk. Because the constant flow of hate, of lies, of merciless insult, of moral degradation is fast becoming the “new normal” as we all weary of the latest tweet or the sex scandal, or discovery that our elected officials have developed a two-tiered system of justice in this country where those serving in government are immune from punishment for their sins.

 

I have been mostly silent in my exile to the Alamo out here on the North Coast of America. That’s due to the fact that quite frankly, my work to do my tiny part in fighting back against the tyrant leaves me exhausted, with little room in my brain to write.

 

But for some reason … maybe it’s the rain … I woke this
