Celebrating the collapse of ethics and moral discourse in our transitional time is not a sin

Celebrating the collapse of ethics and moral discourse in our transitional time is not a sin
Ethics whether derived from philosophy or religion is ill-founded and impotent and that's OK
Priestly ethics derived from religious traditions have scant sway now and that's OK
Assertions of moral authority based on Christianaity or any other authority 
have little power now and that's OK
The 19th and 20th century were about deconstructing  the

Mitt Romney Cop Impersonator & Other Observations

The reality is that virtually all of Mitt Romney's promises
involve strategies and positions that

That he will be the willing executor
of whatever hoary objectives
the right-moving GOP decrees
Obama has shown that he can govern
and keep us safe
in the face of GOP disloyalty
and criminality
Romney promises no such capacities
Faced with a nightmare
Choose the President 
and work to see that others do as  well
