Why?

When you want to make a difference and a blog like this is all you can think of.  FYI: This is my deaf dog Princess. She has nothing to do with this blog. I just like the picture.

Stop Waiting for God; It’s Up to Us

The stunning grand jury report alleging hundreds of sexual crimes committed by priests in six Pennsylvania dioceses of the Catholic Church, AKA The Church of the Unholy Pedophiles, brings one question to mind:

Where were you God?

The Washington Post reported that a grand jury in my state alleges the existence of “a ring of predatory priests operating within the (Pittsburgh) Diocese who shared intelligence or information regarding victims as well as exchanging the victims amongst themselves. This ring also manufactured child pornography. . . (and) used whips, violence and sadism in raping their victims.”

Where were you God?

Is that an unreasonable question?

Amid the Outrage Cuomo’s Comments Hit the Mark

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo caused quite a ruckus at a bill-signing ceremony yesterday.

And as often is the case with controversial statements, the outrage over his words is covering up the truth in their content.

In the course of making a larger argument about gender equality and women achieving their full potential, Cuomo said this:

“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.

“We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping of women, 51% of our population, is gone, and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution.”

The GOP Says It’s All About Nancy, But We Know Better

You’ve probably seen in the movies where a bank robber is in a gunfight with the police and he grabs a woman innocently walking by and uses her as a human shield.

The Republican Party employs a similar technique every election season with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi has been demonized by the GOP over the years as if she was a rea-life demon, when in fact she’s a strong, successful female politician who has shown the backbone to stand up to them – backbone being in short supply in our nation’s capital nowadays, particularly in the Republican Party.

Male politicians from the Right, perhaps overcompensating for their own spineless in dealing with Donald Trump, the most corrupt, incompetent and evil president in history, instead take out their ire on Pelosi.

I guess there are some types of impotency that pills can’t help.

Keep Voting Green and You’re Going to See More Red

The idea of voting for a third party candidate at this particular time in history makes as much sense as a football team trailing by two touchdowns heading into the fourth quarter deciding that every time it gets the ball it’s going to punt on first down.

In other words, you’re doing your best to give the win to the other side.

What’s that all about?

This came up again after last night’s special House election in Ohio’s 12th District, which at this writing is too close to call.

The Press Needs to Pick Up its Game

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is an apparently soulless woman whose capacity to add a dismissive flair to almost continuous lying has earned her the job of press secretary for the most corrupt, incompetent and evil president in history.

In still another embarrassing performance, during yesterday’s White House press briefing Sanders was confronted by CNN’s Jim Acosta, who pressed her on whether she agreed with President Donald Trump’s assertion that the press is the enemy of the people.

Sanders couldn’t bring herself to disagree with her boss’ assessment, which of course made the whole situation more complicated than it had to be.

Acosta is a talented profession with a hide of steel considering all the attacks he’s undergone from Trump and his legion of braindead followers who flock to his rallies to, among other things, verbally attack reporters like Acosta.

It’s Time to Concede the Idiot Vote

Condescension is seldom a good look.

Expressing superiority over other people, demeaning and mocking them, patronizing them, all are the actions of arrogant people, and personally I don’t have much use for arrogant people.

Actually, there are infinitely more people who act arrogant than there are whose accomplishments in life give them any right to do so.

Sort of like people who wear spandex.

Trump’s Hate-Based Policies Are an Embarassment to Our Country

In the endless series of fiascoes that have so far marked the administration of Donald Trump — the most corrupt, incompetent and evil president in history — it seems that some of the biggest share an underlying theme.

His Muslim ban, the handling of Dreamers, the response to the hurricane in Puerto Rico, the separation of thousands of children from their families at our southern border – are you seeing a trend here?

They all involve negative actions and cruelty against non-whites.

That’s what happen when you base your policies on hate, rather than helping people and the greater good of our country.
