Status Report

     This one comes from A Nod To The Gods:

     Being a good American assumes a moral code of conduct, a trust that my neighbors won’t break into my house, won’t harm my family, and won’t get in the way of my right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It’s been a moral standard that has served America well for 240 years. That contract has been breached by the very people who should be held to the highest standard of that code.

     There are no laws.

     The author lays out a strong case for his contention. Please read it all.

     Law in the American conception applies equally to all, without regard for anyone’s “protected status.” Neither can it be set aside at the whim of a “ruler.” Yet both those premises and many others have been set aside during the Obama years. Will these obscenities be corrected in the forthcoming administrations, or will they continue until the barbarians burn Washington to the ground?

     Choose wisely.

I didn't care much for the graphics, but the articles is a good portrayal of our national state of social health. The word 'accountability' was finally used, toward the end. Francis, you said 'choose wisely' but too many bad choices have been made by so many millions of people, that's why we're here on the precipice. And they were all very tiny, insignificant choices. I suppose I'm too hard on the churches, even my own, but proper accountability at the pulpit might have kept us on the better path.
