Like many of you, I’m extremely disappointed in the events of the past few days … the Iowa caucus chaos, the State of the Union reality show, and of course the Senate’s unconscionable acquittal of the most corrupt and criminal president in history. To say that I’m discouraged would be an understatement. I am overwhelmed, burned out by the onslaught of news and the number of times the face of the ugliest man in history has cropped up on my computer screen. I’ve spent the last three hours trying to pull together a meaningful post, and finally gave up … decided there would be no morning post on Filosofa’s Word today. But then, I stumbled across Robert Reich’s latest video. I’ve shared his work before … he is intelligent, well experienced in government, and has a good head on his shoulders.
This video is from Tuesday, the day of the State of the Union address, and in it, Reich puts forth some thought-provoking premises about why we are where we are today, and what Democrats must do in order to beat Trump in November. Much of what he says, we have all talked about before, but he puts it all together in a way that makes us stop and think for a moment. Now if only we can get the democratic candidates to watch the video!
Take a look, let me know your thoughts, and I hope to get a bit of sleep and come out of the rabbit hole in time for my afternoon post.
