Turn the Page

So here I am, back at home again.  Recovering from a total knee replacement.  I look around and find that the country has undergone a total sanity replacement.

Vladimir Putin is President.  The supreme racist Stephen Bannon, is the new gangster in chief, the Grand Dragon of ghouls. Hermann Goering is Secretary of State, and Goebbels has been replaced as minister of propaganda by the cruel cretinous comb over cutthroat game show host we all love to hate.

We are living in interesting times.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Rantaclaus.  He is all over the TV dispensing lumps of coal to those who mine this foul substance and to the rest of us whether we like it or not.  We must all be naughty.

Muslims are the new Jews.

We are all afraid of what we know or worse, what we do not yet know.  We are scared of things that go Trump in the night.

The resistance is alive and well.  We are prepared for some tough years. We are firmly convinced that we will prevail as good Americans have always done in the face of lunacy and other challenges to our Democracy.   We  emerge stronger in the process.

Remember, these malicious misfits live by the gospel of divide and conquer. For us there must be no white, black or green. We are:  Environmentalists, Feminists, Progressives, Liberals, We the People,  All the People. All of the 57 varieties of sexual preference named by National Geographic, the poor, the poorer and the persecuted must unite for a single purpose:  to preserve the Union.  The banner under which we gather is merely symbolic, our purpose is vital, unrelenting.
My advice:  embrace the fear and rise above it.

We are the Phoenix, Goo goo g’joob!
