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.
