I am amused at the TV pundits and pollsters who exclaim, night after night, that DDFrump is the leading republican candidate to be nominated by their party to oppose the Democratic nominee. I, for one, am not surprised. After all, Iowa is 92% white, while New Hampshire, next door to Vermont, where Sen. Sanders, is from, has a commanding lead over Hillary Clinton, is 94% white, so there is no way or fashion, remotely represents of the country as a whole; although a state like Iowa seem to have more “Independents” (42%) than anyone would think. I like to think that “Independents” are “closeted” republicans, who are embarrassed by the lurid antic of the party but are anti-progressive in mind. If they are pre-millienial, they long for the “good old days” when there were more of them working and in charge of “things”.
DDFrump panders to these people. He is taking advantage of their dream of yesteryear. Yesteryear is not coming back. Progressing means moving forward; no more black and white TVs, no more racial jokes, no more cross country railroads for the masses, no more wars, no more $3500 cars that you could tinker with.
DDFrump is saying to these people,”I’ll make America great again”, as if we (together, with opportunity for all) aren’t great. That’s his false message. And what makes us great is our economy (which made him a billionaire) and the contribution of those who are the descendants of those first pioneers and others who got here by any means necessary, as well as those who brought here in chains, or came here (Central Americans) to escape death, disease and poverty to seek a better future or those who were given a free pass (like all the Germans from WWII whose heirs now dominate the Midwest, the Vietnamese, Koreans, Pakistanis and East Indians), even the Caribbean Islanders, and now the Syrians and Iraqis, all melded together to partake in the freedom of capitalism and education this country offers and are a part of this GREAT nation.
Plus our military, the best-trained, most dedicated, strongest armed and proud force on this Earth.
Our ability to aid any country anywhere in the world with medicine, disaster control, or food, when asked, is first rate. They don’t ask Britain, they don’t ask Argentina or Italy or Canada or Austria or Sweden… they ask us, the Unites States. So I say, we are already great because we are progressive and the world’s leader. We can still do better, but we will not sustain all of the above if we go back………
What DDFrump should be saying is, “Let’s do this together!” but he won’t because he, (the converted republican) has joined the cabal of liars, cheats, amnesiacs and backward thinkers. Republicans got us into two wars, Iraq and Afghanistan, gave the rich more power over our politics, let them off the hook on taxes, then closed their eyes to pollution, global warning, a living wage, and ruined our economy.
Now, again, they want another chance to phukq up again. No donnieboy, not you or the slugs you dig up or the bridge penguin, or the crudzman or the thirsty donkey from Florida….. will ever be given the opportunity to screw up!!!
While he hollers loud for a divisive America, and emphasizes ethnic, religious and racial discord, that’s not what we will accept, so he may win a few states in the primaries and caucuses, but America will never accept his diatribe, while he espouses that “Everybody love me” crap.
News flash!!!! Hell no, we don’t!!!
We are already GREAT and are determined to continue on that course. You will not hold us back, so take your carpetbag and your friends and go back to the egotistic lifestyle you wallow in.
Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith have decided to forego the Academy Awards. Kudus to them.
Will Smith called out the nominators and said he sees a regressive slide towards separatism, towards racial and religious disharmony, “that’s not the Hollywood that I want to leave behind. That’s not the industry, that’s not the America that I want to leave behind.”
There’s a position that we hold in this community and if we’re not a part of the solution, we’re a part of the problem. It was her call to action for herself, for me and for our family, to be a part of the solution.” “This is so deeply not about me. This is about children that are gonna sit down and they’re going to watch this show, and they’re not going to see themselves represented,” Jada Smith said.
Well I don’t watch it anyway, but I encourage you to do the same. I know you won’t… you’ll watch; what a message you would send if you didn’t!!
Enough said, I’m out!!!
