The USA is not Perfect

The USA is not perfect never has been never will be Unlike Russia, which has ‘no alcohol problem’ ‘no civil disobedience’ ‘no LGBTQ populace’ Not to mention no truth in the information it disseminates to suckers around the world... Yes, indeed, the USA is not perfect not with George Washington the 1700’s slaveholder (gasp!) on our currency, not to mention Susan B. Anthony, who was proudly anti-abortion, pro-life – for shame, for shame! ~ Our ignominious past consigns us to eternal penance ~ Unlike Libya, where an ancient slave trade flourishes to this very day: Muslims enslaving black Christians which does not fit the media’s narrative so most people aren't aware of it and the rest don’t care about it Unlike Afghanistan, where the repression of the 'Old Taliban' is now fully in place under the ‘Newer, More Gentle Taliban’ or Syria, whose butcher of a ruler has made refugees of half his citizenry, gassing thousands of others with chemical weapons… But yes, indeed, the USA is not perfect Never has been Never will be Let us forever grovel in abasement to all the tin-horn dictators of the world not to mention our home-grown squadrons of regressive radical progressives Down with Jefferson, Lincoln, Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, Truman and Reagan! Up with Omer, Tlieb, Pressley, Sanders, AOC, Corey Bush, Schiff, Nadler... Long live Maduro, Castro, the Mullahs, Xi, bin Salman, Abbas, Gaddafi et al! Lies are Truths Might Makes Right Facts are Opinions 1 9 8 4

"facts are opinions" - I am beginning to see this myself.

Enjoyed your poem, Gershon! This country could end up a very scary place or remember what real freedom is and why freedom is important. A country by the people (not one section) for the people. A joyful, flag waving, freedom loving, possibilities people. God bless America. A sound mind! God bless you, Gershon.

Real freedom costs real blood -- and is real messy too. People forget. ~ Soldiering On

My response is, no response. Except to say, there is a huge world those who hate it here can move to. LEAVE, I don’t mean you, Gershon. No country is perfect. Plenty of lies in circulation that people are buying into. They show up in the pietry here! That’s Ok, the media under control of a Goebbels like monster spreading hate and division... censorship grows. We have no leader. And no God. Our God is a vaccine? Hugs, Panagiota xx

I think that even America's 'God' is officially an atheist now. He takes a knee when the National Anthem is played too.

Brilliant write, Gershon; one of your best. It will not make you popular with, generally self possessed artists, who can't see beyond their own noses and immediate feelings. It takes study and caring time to understand history, the world and its politics -- takes time away from art to read and analyze the real challenges of our day (which would make all art more concurrent therefore meaningful) -- well, not enough room to say all I would want to. Thank you for this great work!! Blessings!! A Fav!

Thank you so much, Joe. Really appreciate your support on this one. Every once in a while, flowers, fragrances, scents and blooms have to take a back seat the ugly reality in which they now exist. Appreciated! Faith and Strength, Gershon
