Words Poorly Used #110 — Integrity

It turns out that America’s agreements are not worth the paper on which they are written.  But that was something that native peoples could have told us a long time ago.  Integrity is just another weasel word.  As POTUS reneges on treaty after treaty, accord after accord, we Americans who thought we were citizens of an honorable nation are foiled again.  We now see that any position of integrity can be forsaken at the whim of minority-elected officials, who have sublimated their honor at the suggestions of lean and hungry Cassiuses.  In this particular case, I speak of neo-cons who have insinuated themselves into every Oval Office in living and recorded memory.
