Roxburgh’s goal was to develop students with good character and moral courage, young men that would be “acceptable at a dance and invaluable in a shipwreck.”

It is clear to me that goal was not achieved with our current administration and the Neer do well Congress that supports him. There is little blame to be placed on his voting supporters as they as many of us have been spoofed by our elected officials and the certain parts of the news media. Looking at the current chain of events from 2016 until now, we are, in the vernacular of many “deep Dodo”. This administration has created havoc around the world through withdrawal from climate and trade pacts, assessing tariffs on countries for no other reason than the thinly veiled racism. Pounding our southern neighbors through returning and requiring immigrants to remain there until their number is called ( often years at this point), building a wall that has no effect aside from encroaching on American land owners while at the same time cutting their  farms in half. There is no Rhyme or reason to this administration other than the aggrandizement of this President and his cohorts. All of the executive orders and barely legal actions of the administration abetted by the GOP members of Congress have served only to incite the divide created by a lackluster Congress and gleefully joined by TOTUS. This scam of a Presidency has brought shame on all United States citizens but is acknowledged only by the citizens who have the wherewithal to recognize and embrace the multi nationality that made America in spite of the hundreds of years of inequality. If you are afraid of folks who are different or do not look like you then you are in the wrong country as this has been the case for the existence of the United States. If you allow the status quo to continue we will always have inept and criminal representation in government.

“I’m not a shame person, but man, I want future generations to look back on us and say, ‘Look how hard they tried,’ not ‘Look at how blind they were.’”

Jacqueline Novogratz
Towards a Moral Revolution

These last four years have shown how broken our political system is. We have become so jaded and apparently oblivious to the activities of our elected officials that we are surprised at their actions. This is not new business but old business renewed. This is the same types of actions that occurred after the “War Between The States”, during and after WWII and more recently the middle east. We now have the “greatest show on earth” playing before us with all of the associated acts. We have a leader who at best is  uninformed and is abetted by 535 neer do wells who mouth homilies to appease us. During all of this are the lesser imps who dream up and institute the evils that will excite the leader and keep him engaged. This method of governing is at once inept and dangerous with effects lasting for years to come. Bear in mind that leaders lead and fakers fake!

TOTUS is again on a tear of blaming rather than offering solutions. It is unfortunate that it takes a National emergency to show how inept our current administration is. TOTUS has continued his name calling of anyone who disagrees or contracts him. The contradictions are of his own making as the lie stream he promotes daily as a press conference continues. It is a well established fact that TOTUS is inept and covers that with a constant stream of non facts aka “alternative facts” on a daily basis. It is common for a “con artist” to keep up a stream of lies to cover their misdeeds and deceptions (Bernie Madoff did it and is now in Jail). Interestingly enough that TOTUS never offered any pardon to Madoff but did to several convicted political figures including a Governor. All of this  to show the messy mental state of this President. The real “deep state ” consists of the groups who called themselves “conservative, ultra conservatives” or any other group that is far to near left or right of center. These folks in the extreme pick up the ignorant utterings of TOTUS and protest against their local governments instead of directing that anger or dissatisfaction toward TOTUS who is largely if not totally responsible for this mess. It is interesting that so many folks jump on bandwagons which are discordant and sometimes dangerous. These are the vehicles that do more harm than good and their effects are not realized or recognized until its difficult and often  too late to reverse. The real issue as I see it is the public easily corrupted  by “entertainment news” and largely ignores the real facts that are available everywhere else. The old saying “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. I  Challenge everyone to start paying more attention to who we vote for and follow, everyone is not your friend especially elected officials and group leaders who espouse radical ideas far right or left of center.

TOTUS has started having press conferences (which he stopped due to so called : “hard questions” being asked by reporters), the “press Conferences”  are in lieu of the Rallies TOTUS would have had in pursuit of a second term. This is a clear and present danger since TOTUS has no other purpose other than putting his face and message out to his base. Meanwhile, the country as a whole is still in the grips of an epidemic. First he ignored and denied there was a problem, his administration ignored or committed to the trash the 76 page from previous administration as a guideline for events such as Covid- 19. TOTUS is seeking a second term and I ask the question: why would we grant that when we kicked Jimmy Carter out over the Iranian uprising with American citizens being held hostage and the embassy being over run. This is eminently more serious and potentially the worst issue we are facing at this time. TOTUS has no objective other than looking like a great president rather than being one (the latter being impossible for him).

The highlighted sections while not exactly related to the current administration and Congress eerily echoes the issues of 1776 except the despots are our leaders who we have elected and certainly can and should replace. MA
The Declaration of Independence
The Want, Will, and Hopes of the People

 
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

I know that the ones who love us will miss us. Keanu Reeves (thrown in for effect) MA.

This current administration has allowed us a luxury rarely available. That luxury is to go back and investigate the failings of our Congress. The so-called members who fought for the people are gone and when we look back at some of the laws they enacted we would notice that they ( the laws) were for their own benefit. We now have the politicians deciding the health care of us all with no medical input or at best Psuedo medical input. The rise of the far right and far left has occurred globally and seems to be increasing in the same vein as the 1930’s rise of Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese and Russian strongmen. Just a note: Steve Bannon has been a participant or egger on of these factions with his input and sometimes just his presence. Aside from his outside influence in the 2016 election, Bannon was an advisor who left under a cloud but did manage to set TOTUS on the narrowly focussed track that his mind has followed since. We must remember that “We the people” have a bigger say in Government than we think and we need to exercise that option by contact and protests that will stop the wholesale gutting of  laws that support our Constitution thereby providing the freedom the Founders fought for ( and our sons, daughters, parents  are still fighting for). The “Make America Great Again” slogan is no more than a dog whistle”  for a miscreant administration overseen by a Chaos master aided and abetted by a neer do well Congress. Our sole purpose as voters needs to be as careful an examination as we can muster of the candidates for office and the current office holders regardless of their words and slogans. WE need to passionately ignore the News that belies the truth and use our own common sense to right the “ship of state”.

Across the country the GOP has been stridently back pedaling on their efforts to kill the ACA by flat out lying about their support for the Previous conditions portion. If you look at the debates every GOP candidate will emphatically deny their support on the repeal while asserting that they are for the existing conditions which exists solely in the ACA. They are touting a bill that will (they say) include pre existing conditions but the other stuff as shown in this politico article:https://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/04/gop-health-care-bill-details-explained-237987. This is a long read but educational and worth the time. The ACA is not Perfect!- I repeat “the ACA is not perfect!”. Since Congress refused to take this on in a bipartisan manner the ACA was never fully realized. The GOP is doing what consummate liars always do and that is deflect the truth while throwing the issue back as an issue of the opposition. It is indefensible for the GOP or Trump’s base ignore facts and take on the “pseudo facts”  as truth while the Party continues to burden ALL of us with their self serving activities. The Tax Reform has given us a Trillion dollar deficit which they will if we let them take it from so called “entitlements” (their words) like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security (the retirement that most of us have worked for over 40 to 50 years and are “entitled to”). It is important that we all understand that no party, right left or center is perfect but when anyone of them does damage to the voters then we need to replace them!
