I try to find some compassion for the man. A person who knows him well PM'd me- it seems his mom's pimp took most of the household money for carousing, forcing her to bring him to work at the brothel due to a lack of day care funds. As if the parade of "uncles" was not enough to traumatize his young mind, it was the "donkey show" that proved his final undoing. The poor lad has never been the same since, I am told. The financial strain of carrying for his severely bow-legged mom has also been immense. Sad. Truly sad.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
