Facts from the Mueller Report

By Glenn

Donald’s inner circle are confessed and convicted criminals.

Donald’s campaign/family worked with Russian agents to influence American elections.

Donald himself praised the criminal behavior of Putin while pursuing a hotel deal in Moscow.

Donald fired James Comey to obstruct the criminal investigation.

Donald tried 10 times to obstruct justice.

Mueller did not, and can not, exonerate this deplorable pattern of lies and cheating.

All Means All

By Glenn

Let me repeat everything Jesus said about gays and lesbians.

“____________________________”

Nope. Nada. Hating gays and lesbians is not part of Christianity. Go back and read the Gospels.

Love all. Care for all. All means all.

Yes Donald’s Family and Campaign Worked with Russians

By Glenn

“The truth is that we barely know anything more today than we did a week ago. It’s likely there’s a reason for that.” Kevin Drum

Last week we knew Donald’s inner circle are confessed and convicted criminals.

Last week we knew Donald’s campaign/family worked with Russian agents to influence American elections.

Last week we knew that Donald himself praise the criminal behavior of Putin while pursuing a hotel deal in Moscow.

Last week we knew Donald fired James Comey to obstruct the criminal investigation.

Yesterday, does not change what we know. Yesterday, did not, and can not, exonerate this deplorable pattern of lies and cheating.

Documenting Truth and Lies

By Glenn

Cohen lied to the Republican lead Congress. They didn’t care because it was CYA.

How do we know Cohen lied? There are documents presented to a US Federal Court where he plead guilty.

Now Cohen is telling the truth to the Democratically lead Congress. Republicans are furious because it demonstrates their complicity in covering up Donald’s crimes.

How do we know Cohen is telling the truth this time? The very same documents that showed he lied, now show he is telling the truth.

Don’t come unhinged because reality doesn’t match your delusions. Facts have a liberal bias.

Abuse is about power and cruelty.

By Glenn

Abuse is not caused by celebacy.
Abuse is not caused by sexual orientation.
Abuse is not caused by theology.

Abuse is about power and cruelty. As along as we allow people with power easy access to victims, abuse will continue. Stopping abuse requires immediate reporting, credible investigations and certain punishments.

Abuse can happen in a family, a daycare, the BSA, a school, a church, the government….Yes, abuse can happen anywhere. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Certainly, as individuals, it is always best to avoid walking down a path. The Buddha would agree.

  • All life is suffering
  • All suffering is caused by desire
  • To end suffering one must end desire.
  • To end desire on must walk the eight-fold path.

We, as a community, however, have the obligation to create institutional barriers to abuse and institutional mechanisms for justice. When we only focus on the individual, we fail to prevent abuse.
