Checks and Balances

I believe the confusing, even contradictory behavior of soon to be former Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, has been a contributing factor to the historically low numbers of Americans who trust our government (18 percent). Maybe it was too much to expect someone who publically criticized candidate Trump to continue that criticism after the 2016 election.

But like the record number of Republicans who won’t seek re-election, he seemed to have abandoned his values to support #45’s agenda, leaving many Americans to wonder who is willing to hold this president accountable.

I would say that many if not most of the people who voted #45 into office knew exactly who he was and like him just the way he is. And J.K. knows a thing or two about the type of people who support a would be autocrat…

The Evil Men Do…

People want to ascribe evil to only the most extreme behavior and label it inhuman. But evil is an all TOO human characteristic. And just like all the “isms” plaguing American society, is rooted in human frailty and fear.

“Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.” ~ W. H. Auden, English poet
