When we had heroes in the real world there were also superheroes on television, movies, video games, toys, and more.
But alas leadership in our times has seriously fallen short.
Who is there to really look up to as a model for us to respect and follow?
It seems like everywhere these days we are confronted by:
– Failing leadership
– Poor decision-making
– Party politics
– Fraud, waste, and abuse
– Bullying and sexual harassment
– Bribery and kleptocracy
– Big time narcissism
There are few if any heroes these days!
It’s sad for us as well as for our children.
I hope we see Batman and Superman and other superheroes again: strong in the physical sense but primarily a symbol for strength of character/integrity and for the fight of good over evil in this world.
The void is painful for our times and is going to impact our near term future as well. 😉
The new executive orders and legislations reverse the old ones.
– Keystone Pipeline
– Travel Ban from potential Terrorist Countries
– Paris Climate Accord
– Membership in World Health Organization
As a country, we are (borderline) bipolar!
And like a pendulum, we swing back and forth getting nowhere and driving the rest of the world crazy.
Can’t we actually move forward without the perennial one step forward, one step back nauseating dance we keep doing.
Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran are moving forward and they are not waiting for us to figure out what we actually want and get our national act together to move decisively and definitively forward. 😉
If you thought the Presidential Debates couldn’t get any worse than 2016 with “Crooked Hillary.”
Last Night with “Sleepy Joe” hit rock bottom!
From BOTH candidates, the lack of coherent answers, coupled with constant interruptions, yelling, put downs, and name-calling was so completely discouraging and disgusting.
Came away feeling like we were at a Mixed Martial Arts tournament rather a Presidential Debate for the United States of America.
What has happened to our great nation?
We are becoming the laughing stock to the entire world.
If we can’t conduct ourselves with dignity, courtesy, respect, and integrity towards each other, how can we lead this country, let alone the world?
May G-d help us to find our footing again, to unite around the noble principles and values of freedom, diversity, equality, democracy, capitalism, and human rights for which this country was founded, and change the awful political sinkhole of divisiveness, strife, and sheer indecency that we are caught in. 😉
