Indecency by Proxy

“Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.”
— Otto von Bismarck

“Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”
— Special Counsel for the Army Joseph N. Welch

“For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country.”
— Michelle Obama

“For the first time in my adult life I am ashamed of my President and those Americans who adore him.”
— TheBigHenry
The American sense of decency is in decline. For the first time in my adult life I note a distinct relegation of it to the realm of antiquated customs. Even worse, common decency has become something to be shunned as totally uncool. And, I blame the current Administration for placing its stamp of approval on thuggery as the new social norm.

Having surrounded himself with loutish, sneering, and impudent advisors, the President proceeds to impose his indecency by proxy, as he struts and frets his hour upon the world stage to the everlasting shame of many countrymen, who continue to cling to their uncool sense of decency.

It is a sad and shameful tale, which, hopefully, will signify nothing of permanence, god and the American electorate willing.
