Tuesday, July 4, 2017: Independence Day

Two photos that pretty much sum up how I feel about this country on its day of independence. (Click on images to enlarge):

We live in a dark time with someone who is manifestly unfit for the Oval Office and enough people who don’t see this as a problem. The damage being done to our environment, our civil liberties, workplace safety and food protection, the disadvantaged, public education, international development, and our moral standing among nations is like nothing else that’s happened in my 70-plus years. If there is any “carnage” taking place in the United States now, it’s the assault on truth, reason, decency, integrity, and compassion being led by our so-called Commander-in-Chief.

Contrary to popular myth, a frog will jump out of a pot of water that is gradually raised to the boiling point. What will it take for America to do something similar?
