Easy To Be Hard(ened)

The opposers to Don the Con endure the entertainment provided by his nuclear meltdown presidency. In these past few weeks, I can’t help but think that Putin, Jinping, and Jong-un are making plans to crush the U.S. in the coming months due to the complete chaos of an unstable mind in the Oval Office, an empty State Department, firings via Twitter, Advisors exiting left and right for new ones 10x worse than their predecessor, while regulatory agencies are mutilated limb by limb by their “leadership.”

Hardened   [hahr-dnd]

adjective
1. made or become hard or harder.
2. pitiless; unfeeling.
3. firmly established or unlikely to change; inveterate: a hardened criminal.
4. inured; toughened: a hardened trooper.
5. rigid; unyielding: a hardened attitude.
6. (of a missile base) equipped to launch missiles from underground silos.
7. (of a missile) capable of being launched from an underground silo.

As a citizen of the U.S. for 55-years, I have become hardened to the deliberated crime of greed and avarice bestowed upon me and my fellow citizens by our elected representatives. #FakeChristians and the propaganda machine has been in full swing with a power grab by the GOP infused by the cash of their puppetmasters. Do not forget:

Imagine yourself an elected official who gives up every tenet of our American ideals to hold hostage our citizens only to keep your tribe, your clique, your party in power. Abject treasonous behavior as noted should land the entire Republican party in prison! Dim yes-men linked to the worst commander in chief in the entire 242-year history since the signing of the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. He uses Twitter to narcotize the masses. He tweets to anesthetize the media. He’s a twit and an anathema to all humans with souls.

Be careful with this next one. There are many chilling images from our nation’s history mixed in with others. They work with the song Question written by Justin Hayward, recorded by The Moody Blues. We are in serious trouble with a new trio in the WH who salivate at the prospect of going to war: Bolton, Pompeo, 45. Chill

Stevie Wonder Pastime Paradise

Coolio updated the song’s lyrics and filled out the melody in his version Gangsta’s Paradise also used in the movie Dangerous Minds.

Another cool rendition of the song by this amazing  Argentinian Choir.
