If you ignore all the daily lies, and downplay the misinformation about the Covid virus, the rudeness, inappropriate tweets and failure to condemn white supremacism, the president’s actions today deem him unfit for office.

He still insists on having his White House rally tomorrow with an invited 2000 people and he won’t even report if he has a negative covid test. His medical reports do not say when he last had a negative test, or even state his temperature. We are being told it is his personal medical results and not open to the public. After the first super spreader event at the WH you would think a person with concern for others would not plan another such event. Even if half the people showed up it would be jam packed in a time of a pandemic. He just wants adulation and plans a rally in Florida on Monday as well, despite his risk of spreading virus. …

Day -236 — Haibun Journey Daily Thoughts — Protest

Our country was founded or started with a protest. If you read through our own declaration it is obvious that our politicians and officials are falling short. Go through and honestly highlife our failings. We all need to stand up and protest for justice.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
