Header

I like to change my header often to something relevant to a day, season, event or mood.

Today I am changing my header from Ft. Lauderdale Beach, where I presently am, to one I have used before when we found ourselves in societal situations that necessitated my pointing out that we must stand up for righteousness. The words in this header are as follows:

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” …..Martin Niemöller

To say that I am disgusted with the leadership of this country at this very moment is an understatement. I try not to focus on it and to look for the good where I can. However I have decided that instead of changing to match seasons, events or moods …Fearsome Beard’s header from this moment forward will remain the above quote  until this FUCKING POLITICAL NIGHTMARE is over.

The character of a society will be judged by how well that society cares for the least among them.

Now I will leave Dolly’s remake of a Cat Stevens classic below as I need hope for our future.

  1. I agree! Just WHERE in the Hell is current and past leadership????????????
    I am so done with both sides I hope they implode each other!!!! They ALL need to be removed from office .Right now there all as useful as tits on a bull. And I sure don’t feel good about the future. We will either be stuck with a evil, racist, heartless, incubus…or a once good politician past his prime, who might kick the bucket a year in a term if he wins.

  2. Lead so that they may follow. One kindness, one person, one day leads the way to kindness, respect, peace.
