Blaming down is the new political norm

It is not just Nikki Haley and the Trump administration sitting in their gilded perch shooting their blame-seeking arrows down into the crowd. It is a rhetorical strategy both parties freely use today.

Recognize those not getting recognized

How about we all do this instead…Take time to think about the powerless in our society and throughout the world. You may even include yourself in that category.
