When a nation should file for Moral Bankruptcy.

As we celebrate the 65th anniversary of Brown v Board of Education, this year, and many other milestones, we must admit that we are witnessing systemic reversals of myriad advances. Even it isn’t safe any more. Reversals are happening at the federal, state & local level. It’s happening, piece by legislative piece. It’s happening unlawful act by each unlawful act against humanity — in words & actions. Coast to coast.

Incessant sabotage of our healthcare system, without any attempts to make it better for anyone beyond the wealthy.

An ill-informed #Missouri elected official defends his party’s anti-abortion bill while referencing “consensual rape”.

An #Ohio legislator uses archaic and inaccurate studies to validate strict abortion laws.

#Alabama, #Georgia (more to come) pass laws that disrespect women’s health & safety.

A NY police officer says it’s “no big deal” that a fellow officer killed a man.

The #Floridagovernor acknowledges that two counties experienced election tampering and there was no confirmation of which counties — activities that could have overturned that election. No bipartisan outrage or solutions offered.

At least four immigrant children have died in American custody; while elected officials and #evangelicals claim to defend the #righttolife.

The #American president, friends & AG disregards our laws.

Politicians are lying at rapid pace and deny it — even with verifiable proof before them.

This is a nation where most every demographic (except white, straight & male) is under attack. Folks urge that we can take a stand on #ElectionDay in 2020. Have they forgotten that the 2016 was verifiably tampered with? How will we know that our vote will even be counted fairly?

Call it a #ConstitutionalCrisis. #NationalEmergency & #MoralBankruptcy or whatever grabs a headline. What it clearly is is an abomination. We are witnessing systemic crimes against humanity and some folks don’t care. At.All.

We need all candidates to stand up!

First they came for those who didn’t fight back. Being slow to respond makes it too late.

Yes, register to vote, but we can’t wait until 2020 — we need action now. We must do more and do it sooner rather than later. Demand the four I’s: Investigations. Indictments. Impeachment. Incarceration.

We need continuous movement building and collaboration to defeat this unconscionable administration. Poor Peoples Campaign, uniting with March for our Lives, joining Movement for Black Lives, in step with Planned Parenthood, aligned with myriad groups who are fighting the same enemy on large & small scale. That’s what the enemy fears — because it is the key to victory.

I’m not sure where a nation can go for compassion & morality & truth & integrity loans — when it is #morallybankrupt — but, we need an infusion stat. ‬#StandUp

I invite you to take 2 to 5 minutes for a glimpse of what I think about issues of the day. Nonpartisan, yet, some might not agree - just don’t be disagreeable.
