None other than Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has jumped aboard the “It Gets Better” train, delivering a video pep talk to young Americans struggling with issues of sexuality and discrimination and urging them to look forward to a better future.

Great! Even better would be if she could direct her message to a certain boss of hers who might make some laws to help out while he’s at it.  —KA

Mother Goose weighs in, this time with some canned compassion and a “story of America.”

Stories are a dime a dozen, of course, as Joe the Plumber showed us.

Wonder what antidepressant Hillary is using to flatten her affect this week.

I surprised she is as poised and understandable as she is with Satan’s giant **** ramming her throat all day.

Stop the bullying in the Middle East first.  That might help.  Respect all life.  The message that the US government sends to the youth of this nation is that might makes right.

All very well and good, Hillary—and thanks. Hope it helps some.
  Bullying and trying to force conformities, however, are embedded deeply in American thought and behavior.  Minorities were, and are, relentlessly bullied and forced to conform to the “political or cultural majority norms” of the moment.  Of course much of the social/economic/political bullying is hidden under the surface, and are seldom acknowledged. Job discrimination, for example. Or “redlining” or and the brutal unjust drug sentences..
  At every level of society, in every neighborhood, every school, every public office, every church this “can of worms” needs to be opened, admitted, discussed and grown out of. Democracy is not made and kept by top officials speechifying on YouTube but by hard and fully conscious work by everybdy, at the neighborhood level, day after day, year after year.
  Prejudice is ugly and mean and unfair—and murderous. Let’s get rid of it, shall we?
