Is decorum dead?

Decorum is a noun and defined by "Behavior in keeping with good taste and propriety" by the Oxford English Dictionary.

Dozens of Republican House members invaded a secure meeting taking a deposition from a witness and held up the meeting for five hours. You don't do that. There were already Republican members of the committee in the room.

Decorum is dead.

The President called members of his own party who oppose him, "human scum".

Nobody, any where, is 'human scum'.

They are human beings.

Decorum is dead.

I knew in grade school that negative nicknames were against good taste and propriety. And yet, our President calls people "Pocahontas" and "Sleepy Joe" and "Shifty Shiff", on and on.

Decorum is dead.

Never before, in my memory, have White Power groups, Nazis and Hate Groups been so active.

Decorum is dead.

Can we recover from this three year fit of  'anti-decorum'? I don't know.

I pray so.

But this president--by impeachment or election--must, must, must GO!!!

Decorum must live and be a part of our every day life.

It must.
