Howdy, howdy folks, Gabby Graywhiskers here. Now, I ain’t no saint when it comes to personal ethics. NosireeBob. Done my share of shenanigans and fibbing. But, folks, I ain’t the President of these here United States of friggin America. And my lies have been about stuff that don’t affect the rest of the world. Yeah, yeah, I know. The ripple of a little white lie can create a tsunami. But, holding that this is true, then Trump’s lies are like a meteor crashing into New York City. Ain’t no comparison.
Y’all deserve better than this out of the man who calls hisself the Commander-in-Chief. Me and you live in a world where a man’s word is sacred. The book of Proverbs in the Good Book talks about the winking man and his devious ways. We sure as hell got a gang of winkers up there in DC, don’t we? And then there’s the biggest liar of all, the Winker-in-Chief.
I ain’t writing this to get into a name-calling contest or to take another man’s inventory. Got enough trouble keeping my own inventory straight. What we have happening in our government ain’t normal. Our leaders ain’t leading. They’re teaching our youngsters that corruption is OK, that immorality is OK, that lying is OK and that ethics and civility ain’t worth a hill of beans no more. That should bother us more than the stupidity being passed off as government. What we have now in Washington, DC, will be a footnote in history someday. But the legacy we’re leaving for the world should worry us. Our children are watching and, let’s be honest, they are saying, “WTF”.
Folks, Gabby loves this country too much to let a band of thugs and mobsters tear our society apart without my two cent input. Morality and ethics have somehow become old-fashioned and obsolete. And since y’all brought it up, let’s talk about religion. Some of them religious boys is acting just as shameful as our politicians. Dang it, there ain’t nothing spiritual about Christian preachers calling damnation on brothers and sisters of other faith walks. We is all walking this earth journey in the arms of one almighty God. That God don’t give a hoot if y’all genuflect, cross yourselves, or lay prostrate in prayer 5 times a day. Hell, try a Buddhist chant sometime. I guarantee God ain’t gonna strike you dead for singing “OM, OM, OM”. NosireeBob.
Gotta run. Granny’s famous possum stew is cooking on the stove and about to boil over. Stop by sometime and we’ll set on the porch counting fleas on the dog and watching the gators in the back yard. Maybe have a piece of fish pie.
