"Here is the bottom line. Amoral men cannot be the moral arbiters to the nation. I am sorry to say this, but that includes President Trump. We need men who can keep their minds focused and their hands to themselves."
One would think in a country this size, we would not have trouble finding moral men to lead us in our government. To entertain us. To be our managers in the workplace. I swear, the list of men who have let us down is growing by leaps and bounds. Why? And why is it the men who we thought would be moral (that should be a "Duh") has eclipsed into a list of amoral scoundrels.
Now if the truth be known, I have put my hands on other women in my married life. If you call giving someone a hug putting my hands on them. Once in a great while, if I know someone very, very well, I might even give them a peck on the cheek. But that is a far cry from Al Franken trying to stick his tongue halfway down the throat of some women he was on a USO tour with. I wonder what Franni (Al's wife) thought of that?
I am sorry. I don't mean to be disrespectful of the departed. But this disrespect of women has been going on since Mary Jo Kopechne. A beautiful young woman in her prime of life somehow drowns while with Teddy Kennedy. And what was Teddy's consequences? Nada. And his brother Jack messing around with Marilyn Monroe - while President. Did I mention that both Jack and Teddy were married when they were fooling around? Or flash forward to the 1980's and 1990's when Bill Clinton had more women that carters has pills. Did I mention Slick Willie was married at the time? And Carlos Danger. The list goes on and on.
When I was just starting in business, the office I worked in was remote from the main factory. A couple times a week, a very attractive executive secretary would walk some papers over to our office. She was so good looking that all male eyes immediately gazed upon her when she walked in the door. Except for one man who had been a Pentecostal missionary prior to working for the company I was at.
One day I asked him why he never looked at that beautiful woman when she came into our office. "I don't want to stumble" he said. "Why open myself up for temptation by having impure thoughts about her?" Very similar to the way Mike Pence thinks. I would hazard a guess than neither the man who sat next to me nor Mike Pence ever grabbed some woman and tried to either grope her or stick a tongue down her throat.
Here is the bottom line. Amoral men cannot be the moral arbiters to the nation. I am sorry to say this, but that includes President Trump. We need men who can keep their minds focused and their hands to themselves.
The reckoning will continue on. The mighty will fall. Maybe even a former President. Once it is over, I hope we all have learned a lesson. The temptation of philandering mischief outside of marriage will always be there. It has been there since time began. But moral men can rise above that temptation. And moral men are the ones who can set the moral compass for the nation.
