We remain a nation dedicated to following old angry men into fighting the last war with the next generation, instead of filling Congress, Judgeships and State and Federal Executive positions with them. We are a people still defending freedom by oppressing those less fortunate, and citizens still confusing patriotic civic duty with, that's not my problem.

Iranians, holding accountable their leaders, who, like Trump/McConnell think themselves above the law, reversing their approval of a, proportional response, to the precision outcome of a flippant presidential golf course order to takeout a celebrated murderer, that spared American lives, but killed 82 of their own Trump impeachment headlines slide to third place, life-threatening Australian fires left to pleas from Golden Globe winners and Puerto Rican earthquake barely receiving an honorable mention.

The imminent threat to America is Americans transforming ourselves into separated solos, behind firewalls blinding us to the dangers of remote revenge transposing the ensemble of life on earth into collateral for Trumpism.

Yes potentially, we are better than the hypocrisy of Lindsay Graham, Mitch McConnell and Trump/Pence, yet we still allow their direction for America to determine our character.

Those over fifty may claim some degree of ignorance, as historically, government practiced, citizens should be seen but not heard, until stunned when sixties' assassinations, the Vietnam War and Nixon's exposed criminality not only woke the unknowing masses but jolted their mass appeal for, all we like sheep.

It's not too late to save ourselves from the dragons of Corporatism who have always known the deadly dangers of their adroitly aimed addictions: cigarettes, Opioids and fossil fuels - convincing millions, we couldn't do without them, until we couldn't if seniors and Millennials unite.

Unlike the German originals and their American Neos, we cannot claim, we didn't know concentration of love of money trading lives for lies and, being mesmerized by narrowing views, lured into tangling webs we ourselves weave with divisive chants of misinformation.

For better or worse, American births confirm, to whom much is given, from him much is expected, and everyday bears witness to how much more we've been given than others, despite allowing bankers, oil men & women and their political, and media, puppets to magnify economic gain as an escape clause.

In 1929 American industry, corporations and government knew, what a margarine commercial would imply fifty years later, it's not nice to fool with Mother Nature, and did nothing to warn us; no industry adjustments, no Wall Street public service announcements, no government offer of freedom of choice. Honestly, loving ever increasing convenience as we do, what would we have stopped, changed, or even slowed?

Would we have returned Mr. Olds' Oldsmobile for a wagon train; recanted desertion of Mall Stores for Amazon packages stolen from our front porch? Will we give up our Netflix streaming recliner when movie theaters get what Blockbuster didn't, and lower movie ticket prices?

Blessings and Miracles, like Royal Marriages and foreign Markets, are a flawed evolutionary chain of events and America's tragedies and comedies, a mystery whose beauty resides in the eyes of the electorate just as the chain of evidence links our dictatorial, practicing demagoguery imperialistic and impeached president to Iran's conservative religious leader, Ayatollah Khamenei.

America isn't immune to Newton's third law. The chain of revenge has come full circle from General Solemani, through Trump's irrational hitjob to Iranian missiles snatching life from 176 souls - and with them, too perilously and unforgivingly close to stealing the last shreds of proof of America's human decency.

We're not separate and apart from the government we elect. Yet we are better than Trump/Pence and deserve better than Mitch McConnell and his GOP corroding America but we'll never achieve it if our thoughts, focus and energy stop at such villains, instead of embracing a collective and individual pursuit of a life of loving excellence.

Truth that sets us free: we can never return to what we thought normal before Trump, because that, trusting gender inequity and believing Facebook ads, elected him.

Truth is, the earth will live longer than all life upon it today, especially if we allow a Trump infested unencumbered conservative GOP to have its way: ignoring the Constitution, raping our environment and degrading the presidency.

We can, nonetheless, be a 2020 Revelation: more new beginning than assumption that, on Mars we'll be able to eat money.
