The Media, In Spite Of Themselves, Continues to Actually Help Trump.

Irony

Once again, just like two years ago, we should thank the Media, Left Wing Protesters, and even most of the Democratic Politicians. For those of us who have supported Donald Trump we did so because we knew he was a fighter for what he believed in. He was a fighter for what he feels is for the good of the country and strives on “counter punching” attacks from whatever direction they may come. We saw Republican politicians finally stand up to the media circus, the violent and vulgar protests, and the smear campaign against a good man in Judge Kavanaugh. President Trump seems to do the most when he is attacked, when he is criticized, and when he is threatened. He has succeeded beyond expectations these past two years because he’s had no choice. Our Country is in good shape and getting better and the Democratic platform is still “No Trump” without any substance. Republican Politicians win when they take the example from the Country’s Leader and get the work done in spite of those that try to stop it. So thank you CNN, Thank You MSNBC, Thank You Pelosi, Schumer, Booker and the whole lot of you for inciting your followers to show the dark side of our country. We will continue to be a United Nation, will continue to be strong, and continue to improve because most Americans don’t want what the media circus promotes and believes in civility and respect for one another regardless of political/social opinions. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

The Silence & Hypocrisy of Kaepernick and Other Flag Kneelers during the Supreme Court Hearings.

equaljust1

 

For two years we have seen people kneel during our National Anthem for what they claim is to bring attention to improper justice in the Judicial/Legal System. They want to bring attention to those that may be stopped, arrested, and even convicted without proper evidence. They want to bring attention to those that may be harassed based on skin color without proper cause. Yet, we have seen studies that show anywhere from 2%-10% of all Sexual Abuse Accusations prove to be false. So for every 100 Accusations 2-10 men have their lives torn apart only to be falsely jailed or at best lose their reputation and watch their name and family be dragged through the mud. While all accusations should be taken seriously and investigated it is surprising the Silence from the likes of Kaepernick who have been preaching Equal Justice For All and the idea of Innocence Until Proven Guilty with Facts to Prove It. Judge Kavanaugh was accused of a serious incident and there has been no proof that it has occurred except the word of one individual. Other accusations have even less credibility. The folks that want to have a conversation of Equal Justice and the idea of Innocent Until Proven Guilty should take a look at their silence and ask themselves do they really care about improving our judicial system or has it all been for show and a shoe contract?

Americans have a right to think for themselves without being labeled.

The current Supreme Court controversy falls in line with the Democratic stance on Anti-Police, Illegal Immigration and Flag Kneeling. We are seeing protests and speeches that say if Judge Kavanaugh is put on the Supreme Court than Republicans don’t care about abuse towards women. Very similar to the same rhetoric that says if you are trying to stop illegal immigration you are against human rights and if you don’t like people kneeling for the National Anthem you are OK with Police Brutality. What the Democrats want to do is to paint people with a broad stroke. Put people into groups. According to them if you are not convinced with the evidence that has come out regarding this Supreme Court nominee then you don’t care about Abuse. Same kind of rhetoric that if you are African-American you vote Democratic, if you are a woman you vote Democratic, if you work in a labor union you vote Democratic, etc.… The Democratic Party continues to tell people how to think and how to feel. They continue to accuse ½ the country of what Clinton liked to call “Deplorables”. While the Republicans talk about policy, Democrats talk about Republicans. Americans are free to think, free to evaluate, free to pick what is important to them, and most of all, free to vote for who they want. When you blame ½ the country of doing and allowing terrible things you start down a road of “divide and conquer” and history shows us what happens if that kind of philosophy wins. The Jews were blamed for all the ills of Germany and were told by their political leaders to hate them. NOV. 6th is very important for all Americans. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Nov. 7th, 2018. The Day After !

Flag

Reminiscent of two years ago, the election on Nov. 6th will have people throughout the country feeling happy and sad. The results will be tallied and whatever the makeup is of Congress and State Legislatures around the Nation there will be calls for recounts, calls of voter fraud and other issues that will try to infringe on the process that our nation uses to elect citizens to political office. The process is not perfect, and there will always be issues that can be improved but it still is the best opportunity for a Free Society to have elected representation. No matter the political outcome we, as a nation, need to always remember that we are Americans First, before political affiliation and before personal agendas. Throughout our history there has been division, anger and protests, but that is also why we are blessed to live in this great nation, as we have the ability to express ourselves. However, we need to always remember that no matter how angry or frustrated we may be, the people we are upset with have the same passion and love for this country as we do, just different thoughts as to what the role of Government is and how certain items in our Constitution should be applied. If we each recognize that ALL AMERICANS make up what is the Greatest Nation on this Earth and that it is our differences and passion that makes us the envy of those around the world, then we can continue to achieve The American Dream. We need less anger and more conversation. America is Great because of all of us but without civility it could lead to a civil war. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

Let’s not forget the other victims, The Falsely Accused.

justice-4

 

Any type of abuse, including verbal, physical, or sexual is bad. I can’t imagine what a victim goes through and will always pray for their healing, peace and justice. However, as a country we have forgotten about a group of other victims. Those that have been falsely accused of various accusations. Sometimes finding the truth is not always easy but there have been and will be more cases of False Accusations. Many cases over the years have been proven to be false..we can go back to Tawana Brawley (Al Sharpton’s claim to fame but both Sharpton and the accuser ended up paying fines when proven it was made up) Let’s not forget the Duke Lacrosse team…there are plenty more. The penalty for false accusations are very weak which does not serve to deter those that want to make up lies that can destroy someone’s reputation, family and career. Many of us average citizens, including myself, have had to defend ourselves from false accusations. It is one thing when a guilty party tries to defend themselves in order to reduce a penalty or find a technicality but to try to defend a False Accusation becomes difficult as we have to prove something did not happen and it becomes one word against the other and in most cases the accuser is given the benefit of the doubt. As human beings we are emotional and we tend to form a belief based on our own thought process and feelings. However, if we truly believe in the American System of Justice and the adage of Innocent Until Proven Guilty we should all take a step back before making judgements. Sometimes we have the opportunity to hear from both the accused and the one making the accusation, sometimes we don’t.   When we serve on a Jury we are asked to look at the evidence without our emotion and feelings. It should be up to the accuser to Prove their accusation not the defendant to prove they are innocent. If we don’t, we are no better than countries like Russia where you are guilty if the government says so even if the evidence does not prove it. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

The Sexual Environment and what we are NOT talking about.

society

With the recent “Me Too Movement” and the current Supreme Court allegations it seems that the conversation that is left out regardless of whether allegations prove to be true or not is the state of the “Sexual Environment” in the country. There is certainly not just one aspect or one reason why sexual misconduct/allegations may occur. However, we can look at our society over the past number of decades and see significant changes that have been contributing factors.

One does not have to go further than looking at Television shows (even ones produced by Disney designed for kids) whether on network TV or Cable, Motion Pictures and Music, to see a bombardment of sexual innuendos, normalcy of pre-marital sex, and a tendency to glamorize immoral activities.

We can look at the percentage of people, especially those under the age of 30, that do not put Faith and the following of GOD’S teachings as a priority. The biggest lesson lost is that of respect for fellow human beings.

Although there have always been divorce, the average age of both the husband and wife both increased to the 40’s in the early 200’s which puts most children in their teens, at the time when communication and education from parents become most crucial.

We need to also look at the state of many families for the past 30 years, more than not, at some point both parents need to work to put food on the table and thus less time to talk with and set moral standards for children growing up.

Social Media and all forms of instant communication can both spread good and bad and as a society we have done a poor job of controlling the bad influences.

Any type of physical or sexual actions towards an individual against their wishes is a terrible thing as are accusations that are false.  We are quick to judge for one side or another and never stop to say what we can do to change the trend in our society that has caused the actions, acceptance and false accusations. Individuals, and our society as a whole, will continue to suffer the consequences unless we can stop the causes and recognize that we are all responsible for societal trends.

Questions Politicians Need To Think About!

eagle crying

As the rhetoric heats up with the mid-terms getting closer I have a few questions for those that are running for office and those already in Congress.  Some apply to Democrats/Republicans and to Both.

Why are you not in favor of a flat tax? Everyone pay the same %. The more you make, the more you pay. No loop holes, no exemptions. Cannot be any more fair. In times of War or other times when the Federal Gov’t has a shortfall Congress could increase the % and in times of surplus they can lower. A one line Tax return and very little opportunity for fraud or cheaters.

If you don’t like the Immigration Laws, change them….why are you promoting not following our laws? That is Anarchy. If you can’t improve the laws, reduce the bureaucracy and make it easier for law-abiding immigrants to gain permanent status (Green Card, Citizenship etc.) then you are the problem.

Instead of Gov’t Controlled Health Care how about more choices? How about incentives to stay healthy? Impossible to prevent illness or disease but certainly can reduce the odds.

Where is the outrage with Hollywood that produces images of sexual promiscuity and disrespect for the human body?  They glamorize adultery, teen-sex, vulgar language and perversion.

Instead of pushing “Free College”, “Free Health Care” how about making sure there are no homeless or hungry children, veterans, or anyone else in this great nation that find themselves in a situation that should not occur in the wealthiest nation on Earth.

For those candidates remember, it is a job interview, don’t tell me what your opponent can or can’t do or why they are NOT qualified. Tell me what you CAN do and why you are the best person for the position.

Stop labeling one group as “victims” as a way to gain voters. The good and bad in our country affect all of us. We are joined together under the Flag of the United States.  Helping one group to hurt another is not in the best interest of our future.

Let’s get back to promoting giving to our community instead of taking.  When attitudes change, and people find the joy in helping others then differences become less noticeable and compromise becomes easier.

Why is GOD bad for our country? Encouraging Faith (not any particular religion) is the best way to give people the ability to share a common belief that is more important than any political party or individual idea.
