Generations after generations embrace, succumb to or master their own weapons of mass destruction, so powerfully hash tagged, we self-distract with Instagram: from ears ringing out the cries of gunshots' victims; our wisdom defused by selective sight clouded by summer and tear gas smoke -- so rigorous in our southern border tastes, we're inflamed, fearing losing something we never wanted.

Hyperlinking hot air rhetoric with blustering inaction, dishonoring both past and future, without shame Conservatives steep our national integrity into the depressed state of our union, while blaming The Help for the stench of our Golden Rule in rigor mortis.

Ask victims not perpetrators:

- Amnesty: ask your undocumented lawn's keeper

- Pride: ask those who clean our toilets for minimum wage

- Human Rights: ask migrant farmworkers

- Self-esteem: ask women paid less than men for the same work

- Financial stability: ask students overwhelmed by banks

- Life: ask those found guilty of neighborhood

- Net neutrality, ask parents of children dead by Bullicide

Do we really believe it's the accident of birth that guarantees the least of these our brethren the indignities of discrimination, bullying, rape and murder by a racist police state - drugged and beaten by household names - alcohol induced rape by fellow students?

Whomever the perpetrator, the targets are the same, and as purposely chosen, as those who were served bad mortgages and selective bankruptcy credit reporting.

When Home of the Brave citizens disintegrate from culture of character to culture of stonewalling our little brown brothers from having work we wouldn't dare stoop to conquer, our Congress reflects hypocrisy of Corporatism stamped Conservatives.

American power is diminished when Americans turn away from those traumatized by poverty, bullying, unjust imprisonment, rape and racial discrimination.

Sadly it's too late to ask the amazingly talented gift to America, immigrant Mike Nichols, but immigrants still work all around us, trying like us, to support families, but unlike most of us, doing so by harvesting the food we eat and cleaning up after we eat it.
