Ready to Re-Up

David Brooks and Vladimir Putin gave us a lot to think about this morning. If you remember, Putin is Trump’s favorite president after himself. (That thing with Kim Jong-un was just one of those little summer romances.) David Brooks tells us some problems Democrats need to be working on in order to keep Trump away from the Oval Office. They are excellent points.

Problem is, he doesn’t tell us what we need to do. I may have a few ideas but it will take time to sort them out and get them on paper.

In the meantime, Putin is a leader and role model in a worldwide move toward authoritarianism. America will once again be asked to stand up for human rights, the rule of law, and democracy around the world.

Putin has me in a mood to let my old olive drab fatigue pants out about three to five inches and go sign up again.

We should all be so angry about what is going on in Ukraine.

I volunteer as a photographer for our local community theater. I have opinions about politics and believe it should be every American's duty to become informed and participate in the discussion of issues. I began this blog to be able to stay in touch in ways I used to on Facebook. I deleted that account recently and hope to be able to share photographs and information relating to cultural and political events in our community. I am retired after a career in social work and post-secondary‚Äč education.

  1. I absoslutely agree. For you it’s your olive drab, for me it is my “Another Mother For Peace” necklace I wore while marching against war. I am heartbroken.

  2. I feel the same way. This is so much like how Hitler began back in the 30’s
    I just wonder how many secrets Putin got from Trump as he left office.
    Never seen so many traitors coming out of America
