I’ve been saying in my Blog that Trump is dangerous for America and American Democracy for the past 3 years. Finally, there are high ranking officials in Trump’s Administration (General Mark Milley Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff & Mark Esper Defense Secretary)  and previous Presidential Administrations that agree. Most of these officials are Generals and Admirals. They have an unwritten code to not make negative comments about a past or sitting President. Many of them broke that code when President Trump used force to break up a peaceful protest so he could have a photo op in Lafayette Square. This shows Trump’s ignorance of the Constitution of the United States, his poor judgement, his lack of mature leadership, his poor understanding of the American people and society, and his blatant rejection of the rule of law. If you don’t agree with or understand these basic strengths relating to the Constitution, then you are the anarchist and traitor to the United States of America and not the protesters.

The following is a video that captures the essence of many, not all, President Trump voters.

Very funny Trump voter video

If you are like the voters in the Trump voter video, and you don’t have any good, and sometimes no answer as to why you support President Trump or why you support almost anything he does and says, then you need to vote for someone other than Donald Trump November 3, 2020. If you don’t vote for someone else, you are just being silly. Just to remind you, anyone Republican or Democrat, would be a better President for America than Donald Trump.

 

There is no question that America is the greatest country in the world. It is filled with the promise of a good life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the hope of a true union of the people of the United States.  But the killing of Mr. George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota by a police officer who strangled him to death with his knee on his neck, diminishes America’s greatness. This event underscores the fact that racism remains endemic in America. For those of you who think that people of color are exaggerating how serious and frequent racist treatment occurs on almost a daily basis in housing, jobs, retail, and the criminal justice system, this is a clear statement that racism is alive and well in America. Mr. Floyd was arrested for an alleged counterfeiting crime. The crime he was arrested for does not carry with it the death sentence if convicted. Mr. Floyd likely resisted arrest but he was subdued, handcuffed, thrown on the ground, and a knee was placed on his neck for about nine minutes with three other policemen watching. Mr. Floyd told the officers he couldn’t breathe. Passers by informed the officers that Mr. Floyd was struggling to breathe. Thankfully the police officer who killed him was charged with murder and the other 3 officers have charges pending. This is a necessary  initial first step, but how can Americans continue to ignore racism and allow it to destroy our union from within?

Until we the people acknowledge that racism is a cancer in America, that left unchecked, it will absolutely usher in the chaos of Democracy and the the death of our Republic. The U.S. Constitution states that all men are created equal. When it was written, people of color were not treated as equals. Over the years since the Constitution was written, equality was legislated into the constitution but has not been enforced fairly or equally. It is time that equal protection under the law be enforced. It doesn’t make a difference if a citizen, law enforcement, or the military chokes the life out of someone with a knee on the neck for nine minutes, it is murder. Of course if there is an enemy in war or well documented self defense, a charge of murder is not warranted.

With regards to the riot that followed Mr. Floyd’s murder, there is no justification for burning and looting. There were a few people among a crowd of mostly peaceful protesters who triggered the riot. Those few should be brought to justice and prosecuted. The anger is understood, but peaceful protest is the only way to eradicate racism. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr proved that. We just need to use his blueprint to stamp out the last vestiges of racism and social injustice. Most Americans know racism is still a problem in America, but too few of you have voiced your concerns. This is a time in America’s history that we have to speak in one clear and committed voice that racism will no longer be tolerated, and equal justice under the law will be the standard everyone will be judged by.

Racism in America, simply put, is overwhelmingly white people taking advantage of and exerting force upon people of color. Why racism exist is more difficult to define. My guess is that throughout history, white people have dominated the world through theft, intimidation, and murder. Once civilization evolved to have rules, domination became less easy to maintain legally, and that  began to balance the power. Though the balance of power was becoming more equal legally, whites still maintained the advantage of the weapons of death and they used them liberally. Whites want to keep their advantage of overall power and are willing to kill to keep it. Other whites, because of ignorance and propaganda, fear people of color and sometimes kill because they think people of color will harm them “I was afraid for my life”.  White people, understand that people of color are not out to get you. Just stop the killing. They just want the promise the Constitution gives of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. If you don’t believe me check the FBI statistics on murder. As you can see, you are more likely to be harmed or killed by a white person than any other race. Beware of your neighbor, brother, sister, cousin, and white strangers. These are the people who are harming, stealing from, and killing you the most. This truth is true for every race. People are at more risk from people of their own race than people of other races.

So if you truly want a United States of America filled with truth, justice,  and equality, then you want to stamp out racism. This is your call to do and say everything you can, whenever you can, to make sure racism is relegated to the history books. Only when this is done will America be truly great. We can do better. We are better. Let’s prove it. May God bless us and may God bless the USA.

DEMOCRACY GONE WRONG

You don’t have to know a person completely to get a sense of whether you can trust them or not. Initially, you use your observation to make your decision. If a person is clearly exaggerating their importance, lying, mocking a person’s religion, and demeaning people based on race, most people would not want to associate with that person. Further, if that same person was sympathetic to world leaders who have horrible records with respect to human rights, eliminates all independent news sources, discourages free speech, and imprison or murders political opponents, you would call that person a dictator. Donald Trump wants to imprison and mute anyone who has a different view from his. As for the other traits mentioned, Trump does all of them on a daily basis except murder.

So if you aren’t willing to hang around the guy next door who has those bad character traits, why would you want to keep Donald Trump around? Also, why would you want to keep his best people around either. In less than two years, a lot of Trump’s “best people” have either quit, been fired, indicted for crimes and lying, plead guilty to crimes, and have been sent to jail. There are simply too many people that fall under these bad character traits. A list which includes most of the House and Senate Republicans. Those politicians are doing nothing to prevent Trump from deconstructing our Democracy. Now if all those people around Trump are of dubious character, Trump is either turning a blind eye to them, or he is complicit with their behavior, and may be orchestrating that behavior.

Trump and the Republican Party consistently ignore the rule of law by allowing Congress to enable Trump to keep his businesses intact, refuses to release Trump’s taxes, and taking children from their mothers at the southern border. They have removed consumer protections which now allow banks to resume their predatory lending habits for homes, credit cards, personal loans, and online universities.  Environment regulations are being systematically removed  which makes it easier for corporations to pollute our air, water, and land just so they could increase their profit margins. With regard to foreign policy, Republicans are calling NATO obsolete, pulling out of the Paris Agreement and the Iran Nuclear Agreement, and belittling our allies in Canada, Germany, and the UK etc., the net effect is to destabilize world governments which makes the path to war more likely.

Republican voters, you have to realize that yes, you are getting some of the things you voted for, but at what price? At what point do the negative things your party is obviously doing out weigh the positive things. What will you do if we lose freedom of the press, free speech, we have a polluted environment, the gap between the haves and have nots continues to get bigger, and we are plunged into another war because our natural alliances have been weakened if we are alone in the world. Is a booming economy for the rich, worth the weakening of our Democracy? How much better is your life and financial status than it was two years ago before Trump took office? If you can’t see a significant difference in your life now, then your vote didn’t make America great again, it made the rich richer again. So FOCUS!!!! If your life is not significantly better than 2 years ago, and you’d rather have a strong Democracy than a booming economy, then you must vote Republicans out of office in November. You can say a lot about Democrats, but they are truly concerned about the equality of every American. For Democrats, people are more important than money. They haven’t promoted fiscal responsibility as much as Republicans, but Obama did much better with the economy than Bush. After Obama fixed Bush’s mess, Trump just took over an economy that was on cruise control. Trump said the economy is booming because of him alone. Really? That’s his biggest lie. If you want to put your faith in Trump, a man who lies everyday, then you are truly brainwashed. Our country deserves better. Vote Democratic in November.

DEMOCRACY

VOTE=VOICE

Until the 19th century, men were winning the war and not just the battles. Men treated women like objects and if they were lucky, women were just considered second class citizens. Of course, depending on the country, women were abused physically and sexually in horrible ways. During those thousands of years, a funny thing happened on the way to equality. In the U.S., women got the right to vote, helped us win WWII by helping to make our war machines and run our infrastructure, became politicians, and became productive citizens in all other walks of life. Equality for women was just a matter of time. What we didn’t expect was that there are some women who want revenge for those thousands of years of abuse. Equality wasn’t good enough. Those women want a pound of flesh. As a result, you hear things like, “I don’t need a man”. Really!!! I know you have a great paying job, birth control, in vitro fertilization (man sperm still needed), sex toys, and washing machines, but REALLY!!! There are still a lot of babies being born. I would think that the 9 month siege and the excruciatingly painful breaking out of the vagina by an alien would be a deterrent to having sex with a man. But, some ladies just can’t seem to stop. Besides, it takes two to tango. Even though the gate swings both ways, it usually swings in favor of guys and girls hooking up.

I get it ladies. You suffered terribly, but do you have to go to the dark side. You should take a lesson from people who were slaves and the Indians. During slavery, there were a few slave uprisings. There could have been more. They could have poisoned all the plantation owners but chose not to. Even today, though unarmed black men and women are being assaulted and killed, blacks are not trying to get even. They just want it to stop. The Indians were systematically slaughtered. They are not seeking revenge either. They just build more casinos.

When talking to my lady friends, I don’t hear much about love, companionship, and compassion. I hear about how to manipulate men to get what they want. Some women can’t just say they are not interested in a man, they have to eviscerate him in front of everybody. It’s a blood sport. When talking about dangling sex and leading a man on, my friend said, “If he’s stupid enough to give me stuff, I’m gonna take it”. All this amounts to emotional castration. You are shaping the men of tomorrow and it’s not a pretty picture. Yes, men were brutal for thousands of years, but most men could still fall in love. Think about it, brutal men who have no capacity for love. The way you see and relate to men today is a direct result of how men treated you for thousands of years. Do you want men who are emotionally detached?

 Ladies, it’s not too late. The fate of the world depends on you. You can be bad ass, just don’t be that way 24/7. Here is a clue to help you know when to be tough on a guy. If he treats you like a piece of meat, he doesn’t respect you for who you are, and he is fixated on any part of your anatomy, you have my blessings to eviscerate him. If he is genuinely nice, and not too ugly, give the brother a chance. Just so you know, you are right, all men want just one thing. SEX!!!! You just have to find the guy that also respects you and treats you like an equal. Those guys still exist but are rapidly becoming a dying breed. Those kind of guys will continue to dwindle if you keep eviscerating men. Let’s face it, eviscerated men push Nuclear Buttons!!!!

So who’s winning the battle of the sexes? Right now it’s a photo finish, and the women are winning by a nose. The only reason women get the win is because men just like sex too much. A lot of men are weak minded when it comes to sex, and that’s a woman’s only advantage. Otherwise, men and women need each other equally. BTW guys, don’t let the ladies hold you hostage with sex. Just find someone who appreciates you too. Ladies, you do have a softer side. I know it’s there because you use it to get stupid men to give you stuff. Try using it to attract a decent man and quit going for the “bad boy”. The fate of the world is in your hands!!!!
