My fellow Americans : In defiance of the proverbial ostrich with his head in the sand or ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room — a question. Can we talk?
I used to play this word game with my late Mom — a public school teacher — who taught me the power of language this way. See if you can think of a sentence using the following definitional vocabulary?
CAPITULATE — to surrender unconditionally.
SYCOPHANTIC — a self – seeking, servile flatterer, fawning parasite toady, yes man, flunky.
APPEASED — to yield or concede to the belligerent demands in a conciliatory effort at the expense of justice.
Sycophantic Donald Trump took a knee to fascist dictator, Vlad the Enemy of Democracy, in Helsinki secret meeting where he capitulated on economic sanctions, weakly supplicated American national interests, destroyed America’s post World War II Greatest Generation Alliance of peace, prosperity and progress for all, and appeased Russia shamelessly.
He did all this in our name.
