Monday, May 31, 2021: Memorial Day

As I reflect on this Memorial Day, I am ashamed of this country. We show respect for our nation’s war dead by having picnics and barbecues, and shopping for sales. We make a pretense of honoring the ultimate sacrifice soldiers made, yet millions of Americans refused to be inconvenienced by masking-up, practicing social distancing, and getting life-saving vaccinations in the cause of a greater good. We celebrate our military for defending our freedoms while Republican politicians and legislatures undertake an all-out assault on electoral voting, the bedrock of our democracy.

For this sorry state of affairs on Memorial Day, 2021, there’s one person in particular who deserves special thanks—Cadet Bone Spurs.

Let us not forget the damage this man has left in his wake.

During the first presidential debate Tuesday night, America got an unvarnished look at our Toddler-in-Chief.

Those who still believe that this man-child deserves or is fit to be president of the United States have set the bar for office so low that a houseplant could easily qualify.

In Donald Trump and the Republican party, we face a threat as great as the pandemic, climate change, or an armed attack, i.e., the loss of our highest values and destruction from within of democracy itself.

Such small-minded, grievance-filled, power-hungry, shameless zealots think nothing of driving this nation over the edge.
