"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!"
(I am) Daily tired of fake leaders. They are easy to spot with their bad hair.
January 7, 7pm POTUS address, I got oval office’d (firebrand opposite of anything FDR fireside comfy)—like I watched some twilight zone from N. Korea dictation, throwing fear at me while he shuts my country and countrymen down— that I cannot be silent any longer.
The madness has got to end: this travesty of good will and human ethics and rape of global democracy. So many great leaders of renowned change, revered for positive human outcome for ages to come —authentic legacies, trashed with reverse actions. Great leaders of the past took no political stance of popularity over their innate drive to SERVE their fellow human, the country and planet they cherish safe, and LIFE. Money certainly makes it easier to help in life, but it is not real and it takes life away to make any more of it it seems. Classifying needs and separating people into haves or have-nots. Simple control that’s out-of-control, spoiling the rat’s nest with too much intelligence —for money. Where is the intelligence to make sustainable place for all? Where are the smarts to figure out how to keep things globally balanced in supply and needs? With so much abundance and gift surely we can sort a peaceful share so everyone has.
Leaders. So rare a breed and so desperately needed in these trying times. I have a great friend back east that I recently reached out to. He has been brilliantly posting the 50th anniversaries of the space program achievements. Fellow enthusiast we share a love of many of those great leaders from that time. Great leaders know how to coordinate a force of 400,000 (other leaders) and make things happen, for every person’s benefit. “We came in peace for all mankind” … the pinnacle placard placed on another celestial body by the hand of (a) man. The single greatest human achievement ever engineered, brought forth by an exceptional leader who asked for the success years before. As the rockets started moving to the Moon when he asked in 1962, President Kennedy also asked what his new generation could do for their county. He made clear distinction then to not ask what his country could do for its people.
Why is it in 2020 that we have become diametrically opposed to this idea?
Why have we lost the torch of brilliance that summons authentic courage and accomplishment in a much richer generation rooted in the same greatest country on this planet?
Where would we be if the Apollo 13 flight director had just said “oh well, there’s not much we can do, let’s just hope the cyanide tablets are handy.” …?
There is clearly a leadership drought at the moment. It’s time for doing something FOR this country. I cannot even ask of it right now, unfortunately, as it bears no pride in its citizenship. Founded in revolution for freedoms and an independence from tyranny, it has become the tyrant and promotes fear and anger where it reaches rather than true strength and support. It is imploding before my veteran eyes and I despise the shenanigans of politics that have now morphed into a charade of twitter ratings and mindless profiteering. Leadership purchased and fake propaganda everywhere -bewildering nonsense that does nothing but feed corrupt appetites with more useless information. Meanwhile behind closed doors everything is bought and sold at such outrageous deal the real costs make the rug look like a mogul run. Bargaining of life for the lust of a gold toilet no one needs.
We need a leader who knows how to filter our planet ship so we can breathe again. Calm, cool, rational, smart, ingeniously compassionate, we shall all get home again with that kind of fortitude.
PEACE be will you, my fellow American. May you stay safe as you stay clean and heathy, respectful of everyone else as you would want it yourself. There are no leaders unless we all lead ourselves. Do right, do good, do what you can when you can and are able. Be thankful as we are all we’ve got and we simply must rely on one another. Divided … you know the deal. If we all help someone else it’s guaranteed we will all get what we need. No one stands alone here, especially any good leader.
