    The headline - "US Sec. of State John Kerry sees trend of governments trampling rights"

    And that's before he even left the U.S.

    So, is this setting the stage for a "But everyone else is doing it..." defense for the actions of the Obama administration?

    "Kerry cast his remarks about Ukraine in the broader context of a "disturbing trend" toward despotism among governments in central and eastern Europe."

    The reality is, Kerry need look no further than the USA. A disturbing trend is an understatement.

    Mr. Kerry is probably right because the same trend is here in our own country. When a few judges over-rule the vote of the majority, when an executive uses 'executive order' to bypass congress or to handpick the laws he/she will enforce, then the rights of the people are being trampled. It is a sad state but the US does not have the high road right now.

    Matthew 7:3
    And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    In related news, john Kerry says too many politicians are amassing wealth while in office and also trying to avoid paying taxes, or what his colleagues would refer to as paying "their fair share"...

    I have finally heard anything (this week)
