Tuli Can't Stop Talking

These are just my thoughts on contemporary issues and an attempt to open up a dialogue.

Have We No Decency?

Prior to November 2nd, the American Public could claim they had no responsibility for the actions of this administration. All that has changed as it was actually elected, though by a narrow margin, and not selected by a 5 – 4 vote of the SCOTUS. Now, we the citizens of the United States of America are equally culpable for the Administration's actions. And their actions are not painting a pretty picture of the USA.

Are we really going to put a man in charge of the Justice Department that doesn’t believe in JUSTICE, the U. S. Constitution and the Rule of Law? I personally don’t care if he is the first of anything. In fact, if it was the first Black-Hispanic Woman to be nominated, s/he should be roundly rejected for her/his behavior.

A rewritten TORTURE memo doesn’t work. Once the genie is out of the bottle, the genie is out and can’t be returned.

So, as Huey Long is reported to have said: “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in an American Flag.” And, as A.O. Scott has pointed out in the NYT, it may even look like this.
