merica is a nation of extremes, but with inconsistent tolerance for extremists and no dependable majority foundation for those who diminish us with torture, corrupt our sense of balance with an inequitable cluster of bullets, or overdose our electoral process with Supreme financial steroids.

As friends and family gather together to ask the Lord's blessings on rushed buying and exchanging, during multi-cultural Season's Greetings for holidays intersecting in monetary nod to peace on earth detour, remember those gifts stolen by man's inhumanity to twenty elementary school sons and daughters and their six self-sacrificing guardian teachers.

Give the gift of heroes who on 9/11, rushed to save, as did Tarrant Police Officer William Stacey, hearing a voice crying out in the wilderness, I need to put food in my baby's stomach.

Whether CIA agent or submarine shower spy, self-serving foot dragging politician or activists calling to action; Wall Street greed or Main Street need, we must honor what is honorable, and purge, cleanse and purify ourselves by holding the dishonorable accountable.

Whether battlefield military or ballot box civilian, we mustn't link to WWII excuse, We Didn't Know, for lying to ourselves, we collaborate with traitors betraying our national soul.

Whether we call it enhanced interrogation or not, what it did or didn't procure can never justify. Torture for any reason is repugnant international behavior that defines a nation and its people, and those who order it, are as much bottom feeders as those who behead the innocent.

On 12/13/14 tens of thousands of the American rainbow demonstrated the exceptionalism of our U. S. Constitution, while proving the power of peaceful protest against the puppeteers who use Romney's 47%, to turn their vote against themselves; against what Founding Fathers launched, Lincoln preserved, against what The Greatest Generation fought for, and for which King and Kennedys died: #Justice4All.

Wars are rarely the best choice, and worst, when the first choice of those who don't have to fight them. Afghanistan War against 9/11 attackers was a war on terror.
