The Case Against Donald Trump – The president of the United States poses a threat to our collective existence. The choice voters face is spectacularly obvious.
Donald Trump is the worst president this country has seen since Andrew Johnson, or perhaps James Buchanan, or perhaps ever. Trump has brought our country low; he has divided our people; he has pitted race against race; he has corrupted our democracy; he has shown contempt for American ideals; he has made cruelty a sacrament; he has provided comfort to propagators of hate; he has abandoned America’s allies; he has aligned himself with dictators; he has encouraged terrorism and mob violence; he has undermined the agencies and departments of government; he has despoiled the environment; he has opposed free speech; he has lied frenetically and evangelized for conspiracism; he has stolen children from their parents; he has made himself an advocate of a hostile foreign power; and he has failed to protect America from a ravaging virus. Trump is not responsible for all of the 220,000 COVID-19-related deaths in America. But through his avarice and ignorance and negligence and titanic incompetence, he has allowed tens of thousands of Americans to suffer and die, many alone, all needlessly. With each passing day, his presidency reaps more death.
Donald Trump, however, is a clear and continuing danger to the United States, and it does not seem likely that our country would be able to emerge whole from four more years of his misrule. Two men are running for president. One is a terrible man; the other is a decent man. Vote for the decent man.
Just finished the mini-series on Netflix. Generally not into the 're-imagined' genre but enjoyed this one. A good cast. Not too over the top with the 'supernatural' element and the core idea of a disease among the aristocracy worked well as a parable for many things ... capitalism 'eating' the poor etc.
A PATRIARCHAL GOD’S ‘WALL OF SHAME’ … A PATRIARCHAL GOD’S ORIGINAL ‘SHOCK AND AWE’ … DEEMED TOO RADICAL EVEN FOR THE TATE MODERN! ... A WITNESS TO THE MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS WHO DIED AT THE HANDS OF GOD AND HIS FOLLOWERS … ALL LIVES MATTER, ESPECIALLY ‘THE ANONYMOUS MILLIONS’ WHO HAVE NO MEMORIAL OF THEIR SUFFERING.
Here. I am waiting.Even if the lights go out, even if someonesays to me: ‘No more’ - even if emptinessreaches me as a grey draught of air from the stage,even if none of my silent forefatherssits by me anymore, not one woman,not even the boy with the brown, squinting, eyes.I’ll still be here. One can always watch. (Rilke Elegies IV)
