The Slippery Slope of Dictating Rights

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Police brutality is rare, and even more so if you choose to live within the law. The best way to stop police from having to shoot an individual is for parents to start raising their children and stop making excuses for bad behavior. This applies to all races. Whites are shot/killed one and a half times more often than blacks. To assume that is due to one race having a larger population than the other is foolish. You’re saying that all of the people in both races commit crimes. That is not the case. 

 For the point of protest, there have been those searching out NFL rules. Good, it shows that for a change you are attempting to back your arguments with facts. However, who should enforce those rules? The owner of the team, or John Q. Public? 

There are many people attempting to adjust the 1st amendment to their way of thinking. Not that we have seen this happen before, i.e. Biblical theology, Supreme Court social justice, etc. Simply put, the 1st amendment does not say a thing about football games or for that matter, where a protest (peaceful assembly) may take place. 

Then there are those who insist, “We pay their salaries so it is up to us.” Only to an extent is this true. You pay for tickets, cable, dish, or other forms, in order to watch the games, but owners pay their salaries and businesses (where the large salaries originate) pay to use commercial time.

If you choose to protest police officers, then do not ask for their help. If you choose to protest the flag, then you should not expect the military to come to your aid in times of war. Rights are a two-way street. That also applies the other way around. If you feel you have the power to choose what a person can and cannot do, then you have given them equally footing.

In this nation, you are not supposed to be forced to do anything. The government does not have the right to stop you from speaking. They do not have the right to stop you from peacefully protesting—although they did set into works a bill meant to do just that. They cannot make you stand for the flag or attend a football game. They also cannot force you to make a purchase—i.e. Healthcare insurance. Some of these issues are coming to a head because our government has forgotten that our rights are God-given and not government-granted. The best way to rectify those things is to vote out the men and women, who no longer represent us according to the Constitution that governs us all.

Those attempting to convince you that the 1st amendment does not allow football players to protest, will soon decide that other things are not allowed and once you start down that road, you’ve lost the Republic. The reason for so many opinions on what the 1st amendment says, is because the left has worked diligently to remove our rights for a number of years. Sadly, the right has joined them in their pursuit to control the people. We are the government. Those in D.C. are our representatives. Their job is to speak in our interest and that is not now and has not been occurring for many years.

Donald Trump is not the answer. He took an issue that was dying and gave it CPR. Why would he do that? He’s reveling in the anger that he has generated even when there are far-more important issues in need of his attention. He is meddling in the private sector. There are rules governing what a president can and cannot do. He has over-stepped that boundary. His problems are mounting and he is casting shadows, throwing out baubles to keep our attention on matters best left to the NFL to sort out.

For some of us, there is no question but that we will stand and cover our hearts when the flag is raised and the anthem played. If we wish to continue to do so, we need to stop attempting to take away the rights of others. 

Obama’s meddling in a situation involving the police and a black man (the White House Beer Summit), started the rage against our police forces. Now, Trump chooses to use kneeling to win points, avoid facing his own problems, and stir up more division. Enough already, we are either the United States of America, or we’re a remnant society determined to doom ourselves to the scrap heap of history. We cannot have things, both ways. It is one or the other, but not both.

Sorry Folks

If you blamed Obama for the actions of BLM and Antifa but you don’t blame Trump for the actions of Neo-Nazis, the KKK, and White Supremacists wearing and bearing his standard, then your hatred and anger are disingenuous. They committed the acts while declaring Trump as their president and promising to fulfill his promise to “Take the Country Back.” They made it clear that they believe he meant “to take it” from anyone but the whites—as if the country belongs to a certain group of people?

It was bad enough when you began cheering on his use of EOs to rule by decree, but had slammed Obama for doing the same thing. Now, every bad thing he does, everything he causes, you turn your heads—or as you once said about Obamabots, stick them up your backside and continue to sing his praises.

The only things that Trump has done have been things that are good for him and his screed. He loves tearing down regulations that keep him from having to account for his business practices. He ignores ethical issues, which allow him to use the oval office for profit. He is not interested—as he exhibited this past weekend—in quelling differences. Far from it. He is most interested in things that keep the media busy reporting on anything but his bad affairs. 

You put a conman in office and then attempted to raise his moral character. It’s not working and all the pretzel twisting you’re doing while defending him, only serves to make you look ridiculous. This past weekend made it impossible for anyone to argue that the statues placed in towns and cities across the country, should remain. That is gone. You can thank the heated rhetoric of Trump’s campaign and the ignorant rants of those across the aisle.

History will now be torn down. You had a choice of holding Trump accountable and by not doing so during the primary, or since, you have allowed his ignorance and childish behavior to spawn the ideology of “White Supremacy” in the weak minds of some of his voters. You can now sit and watch as history is destroyed, because you could not resist the spiel of a conman…a  man whose character was always less than stellar and at age 70 is not going to change. 

Enjoy the ride, because if this weekend was any indication, not only did you not save the Republic but you’ve also made it impossible to ever put a real outsider or Conservative in the office of president.

People should wake up and realize that no man will be voted into office to save this country. It has to start with us, not politicians. The government is and has been corrupt for decades. Electing a man who benefitted from that corruption and expecting him to change things, was your first mistake. Now, it’s worse than it was and will continue to worsen until people realize that it is US against THEM. They are not up there to save us. Figure it out—there is no division in the government between the GOP and the DNC. The division is out here in the real world.

Who’s Blood?

During the primaries, Trump suggested that he was open to using nuclear weapons to deal with our enemies. At that time, he was a tad clearer as to the “who” our enemies were, but he also felt that nukes were appropriate to use in England or France. The part he left out pertained to stocks he owns. For his supporters—more cult like than even Obamabots—it’s about blood. They’re ravenous to use the full-force of our military against Syria, Afghanistan, North Korea, and any other third world country that Trump doesn’t like or cannot squeeze out a dime. 

Our military has been used as a line of defense for our nation and for nations around the world that either posed a serious threat or abused their citizenry. North Korea’s saber rattling has gone on uninterrupted and pretty much as a steady stream for several years. Either enemies will strike or they will annoy you. North Korea is an annoyance. There is a steady system of abuse against her citizenry by Kim Jung Un, but the same could be said for China’s treatment of her people.

Is it appropriate to throw gasoline on the North Korean fire? The best course of action would be to make Kim Jung Un’s worse nightmare come true, and take him out. However, there seems to be a consensus among the loyal Trumper’s that we need blood, big blood. Everything has to be big and yuge and dynamic—like Cinderella’s dress or the Flying Walenda’s. Toss in a few big words—bogarted from Harry Truman—a bit of flashy circus act, and we have a recipe for defeating Little Kim, right? NO!

What we have are two stark raving lunatics playing games with big boy weapons and those determined to fall in-line behind Trump and his boast and threats, don’t seem to realize how quickly this mess could turn into WWIII. With nuclear warheads, we get hit. We will no longer be the nation rescuing smaller countries. We will be the largest target on the planet and likely the one that no other country will stand by.

Cut-off the head of the snake if you must, but leave the nukes neatly stored. No one will ever win a nuclear war. While Trump wants to use up what we have so he can make more money, he is risking all our lives—every one of us, right down to those over-taxed great-grandchildren. You want blood? Well that’s whose blood you’re risking.

Trump, the Saud’s, and the Losers

During WWII, while attempting to convince our government that they had our best interest at heart, the Saud’s were helping Hitler wipe out Jews. Researching the name Ibn Saud will tell you exactly where modern day terrorism arose.

This past week, Trump re-armed the Saud’s and by doing so, re-armed terrorists. Although he spouted numerous derogatory remarks toward the Saud’s during the primaries and the general, he never meant any of it. He has been bailed out of debt, more than once, by Saudi’s. As he, himself, brags, he rents to Saud’s here in the states. Translations, Americans come second because Trump’s business interest comes first.

Today, he referred to the terrorist who struck the arena last night, as Loser. He minimized what the terrorist had done by using the same term he used for his competitors during the primary. No, the terrorists do not like to be called Monsters. He intentionally mislabeled them so that he did not offend his good buddies the Saudi’s.

Trump felt it necessary to drag his daughter, son-in-law, and wife on his first foreign relations trip. Wow, what is Ivanka going to do, dress them? If Ivanka were half as smart as she believes herself to be, she would know that she is woefully underqualified for the position her father gifted her. But never let the truth stand in the way of something a Trump wants.

The old argument that Hillary would have been worse is now, null and void. Obamacare is going nowhere. Trump won’t do away with it, because the Kushner family owns Oscar and Oscar would go belly up without Obamacare. The border wall won’t be built during Trump’s term. Social Security is to receive cuts in the new budget. The new budget is to be $1.4 trillion. Congratulations to all the angry people who voted for Trump. You all gave us Hillary Lite. Of course, had you done your research instead of firing lasers out of your eyes, you would have known all this.

The brainwashing that has led to the Two Party System will be the death of this country. There were other viable candidates. Unless and until we realize that voting for one of the two parties in power, is the reason we never see change, we are doomed to be ruled by the Two Parties.

Yea, yea, we all know that getting scammed is embarrassing, but if people don’t wake up to what they’ve done, it’s going to be deadly.

Pearls before Swine in a Race Filled with Pigs

So many pigs, so little time until election day.

People continue to complain about the Clinton’s getting away with murder—literally and figuratively—and yet see no problem with a guy who is talking about kissing women…”I don’t wait. I just kiss them.” Trump says he is all talk and no action, whereas, Bill is all action and apparently due to golf course “locker room…boys will boys” talk, Clinton talks too. As a rule, people compare apples to oranges and lose the contest. If you compare Bill Clinton to Donald Trump, you’re comparing two rotten figs. Why figs, because they are one of the most detested fruits on the planet.

Donald Trump lied when he said he was all talk. He has paid to settle a case of harassment and still faces a court date for raping a 13 year old girl, who was too scared to talk. If you’ve read her deposition and then heard the recording, you realize the poop-storm it  has caused for Trump’s defense team once the case goes to court. It’s a wealthy man threatening a young girl and her family, all the while explaining that rich men can do as they please.

Another major miscalculation that Trump made was in bringing out the Clinton victims. Hillary knows how to play the wounded wife better than anyone, and to some degree she has a right. Melania looked non-too-happy at the debates on Monday night. Now she realizes that Donald has been unfaithful to her too. Her statement about her husband’s words and that that wasn’t the man she knew—no matter how ludicrous that sounds—was almost identical to Hillary Clinton’s 1998 statement about her philandering husband.

Most women will fight like a wildcat to defend their husbands. It is for that reason that many states will not allow spouses to give testimony against one another. To put not too-fine a point on it, Bill and Donald could fill a large auditorium with the women they have sexually harassed in their lifetimes. Do their spouses know it? Yes. It’s not true that women don’t know where or what their husbands have been up to, and they’re rarely the last to know—although that is the most overused and totally untrue statement made about infidelity.

Trump having trotted out the Clinton victims for the debate, has fallen in the polls. Millennials tend to take a different view of what happened and they see a misogynists making Hillary’s life miserable. He was, because he was angry about getting caught with his pants down, and it would be an easy guess that the tape didn’t make things too pleasant in the Trump household.

While Hillary may or may not care what Bill does, it’s important to most women that the man they love make them feel beautiful. When a woman finds out what a wandering creep she’s married to, it tends to lower her self-esteem. Hillary is tough, no doubt about it. She is tough, hard, cold, and greedy. She had no problem lying to the parents of the Benghazi 4 to save her own hide. Some marriages are made in Heaven and some are made in political bedrooms with both spouses hungry for power. The Clinton’s was the latter.

The Trump marriage is one of those optional things dependent upon whether Donald gets bored with Melania and finds the next young thing that will have him for his money.

It’s also been embarrassing watching men degrade themselves in favor of propping up Trump. “All men talk like that when women aren’t around” they’re saying. All boys talk like that, while men have better sense and have grown to respect women. That’s just a fact of life. If you’re a man still talking like that, it’s time to grow up.

People are convincing themselves that Trump is a man of his word, when nothing could be further from the truth. Anything that doesn’t serve Trump’s purpose is of no use to him. Just as the women he paraded out and used to cover for his own vile behavior. Bill and Hillary Clinton are self-serving. A little known fact, according to National Geographic, is that the Clinton’s put the White House staff behind by ignoring the clear-out call to leave the nation’s home to its new residents, the Bush family. It’s possible that if they get back in the White House, they never plan to leave…and that’s given that Obama will leave when his time is up???

There are 4 other candidates to choose from, this election cycle. If you’re like many of us, instead of casting your pearls before swine choose one of them. However, it’s not easy to find one that is not just as offensive as Clinton and Trump.
