Whitewash? . . .


(from https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/12/01/george-hw-bush-legacy-222730?fbclid=IwAR3n08B3DWyK8HnOgrgvEjl378hnwa2eFtSgFKNWl1QvGb40w7zelIs-bwA)
". . . In the case of (George H.W.) Bush, this balancing act means acknowledging not only his positive qualities and achievements—as so many news outlets have already copiously done—but also what may have been his defining political hallmark: his cynicism. From his opportunistic criticism of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, to his 1980 election-season embrace of supply-side economics and anti-abortion politics, to his last act as president—pardoning many of the Iran-Contra crew in order to protect himself—there was a recurring tendency to place short-term gain above long-standing values. . ."

We Can . . .

. . .  hope and ACT . . .



". . . "Gary Cohn, former CEO Goldman Sachs addressing new members of Congress today: 'You guys are way over your head, you don't know how the game is played,'" Tlaib (Rashida — newly elected progressive House Democrat from Michigan) tweeted. "No Gary, YOU don't know what's coming - a revolutionary Congress that puts people over profits." . . . "

We Can Only . . .

. . . hope

(from https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/01/us/politics/trump-mueller-lying.html?fbclid=IwAR0hAKeLGLid4Sel6oj8pesUKDHxPLDZ4fcfF2h5eNuT2KCfvfvznwH4n80)
". . . In a confidential memo to the special counsel, Mr. Trump’s legal team admitted that the president, not his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., drafted a misleading statement about a Trump Tower meeting in 2016 between a Kremlin-tied lawyer and campaign officials. That statement could figure in the special counsel’s scrutiny of whether the president obstructed justice. . ."

Worry? . . .

Norman Mingo

(from https://www.newsweek.com/why-does-president-trump-get-away-lying-opinion-1222478?utm_campaign=NewsweekFacebookSF&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR2TG5CfwwGXFOcVizXhnCoKrqevy0P9xcMqxNqKzb9m2NJRUUMkfhENmOo)
". . . Should we be worried about this flight from mere lying to post-truth? . . . Even if all politicians lie, I believe that post-truth foreshadows something more sinister. In his powerful book On Tyranny, historian Timothy Snyder writes that “post-truth is pre-fascism.” It is a tactic seen in “electoral dictatorships”—where a society retains the facade of voting without the institutions or trust to ensure that it is an actual democracy, like those in Putin’s Russia or Erdogan’s Turkey. . . In this, Trump is following the authoritarian playbook, characterized by leaders lying, the erosion of public institutions and the consolidation of power. You do not need to convince someone that you are telling the truth when you can simply assert your will over them and dominate their reality. . ."

Steps . . .

. . . and hours . . .


On and on flow the hours
Like rolling waves upon the sea
And like so many and so varied flowers
Each one some nectar for the bee

We're keeping tabs and writing numbers
Logging each minute in the book
We have a choice to
Either dread the counting
Or see the forest if we look

Store the knowledge
Hoard the wisdom
Take the years
And just run like crazy
Party’s only
What you make it
Make it into the
Best you can

There’s no protection from the power
Generated everyday
The blazing lights shine
From each lofty tower
To illuminate the way

Things that never occur to you
In the spring
Become clear with each
Passing season

All options must be on the table
All points of view be understood
And if you don’t do ev’ry thing you’re able
Make sure you do those which are good

Store the knowledge
Hoard the wisdom
Take the years
And just run like crazy
Party’s only
What you make it
Make it into the
Best you can


The Hours

Am I? . . .


What do I know about happiness
Do I possess some kind of key
To things that no one else can see

Just as far back as my memory goes
Sometimes it seemed I was alone
Only my point of view and me

As I reflect
Some disconnect
Could be afflicting me
Am I just one
Under the sun
Or am I quite unique

Others speak out very easily
No fear about who may get hurt
By words so hastily dispensed

For some reason I step back away
I hesitate to be so bold as to
Presume some insight gained

As I reflect
Some disconnect
Could be afflicting me
Am I just one
Under the sun
Or am I quite unique


Unique
OHO duo Jay Graboski & Ray Jozwiak live, Nobember 2018

To Creed . . .


. . . or not to creed . . .



Yes, he's a fuckhead but, we're splitting hairs on the creed thing. I wouldn't have read it either. But let's get after him about the THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER!! DECENCY, EMPATHY, COMPASSION, PRINCIPLES!!! [Science, reading, education, facts. . . the creed is really not what we need from our president right now] Let us be careful not to bark up the wrong tree!
