Words to live by

I got this great quote in my email. For those who think that they are the epitome of all that is right and good.
"There is so much good in the worst of us, 
and so much bad in the best of us,
that it  ill behooves any of us
to find fault with the rest of us."  
--James Truslow Adams

freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences

Kathy Griffin did something that is simply reprehensible. I cannot believe that her posted picture with a mock severed head of our current POTUS was anything but a sickening way to express her disgust with the current POTUS and the policies he espouses. I have been transparently clear that I find our current POTUS to be an unworthy occupant of that office. Nevertheless, I can only condemn what she posted. It's plain sick!

What If?

Tagged:  

What if -- Barack Obama had been twice divorced, and was known to cheat on his wives?
What if -- Barack Obama had made recorded, graphic remarks about placing his hands in intimate places on female bodies?
What if -- Barack Obama had made suggestive comments about his physical attraction to either of his daughters?
What if -- Barack Obama had made nasty, personal comments about the mental stability of high officials in government?
What if -- Barack Obama had made nasty, personal comments about his Primary Election opponents in 2008?

We now seem to be in an era of full-blown celebrity Presidents.

The latest two I have heard who are deciding whether or not to challenge for POTUS in 2020 are Mark Cuban and Dwayne Johnson. Now, before anyone goes crazy about how unqualified these two are to be our POTUS, remember who the POTUS actually is right now! Cuban is very, very rich, so he must be brilliant and unassailable. He is also on a TV show...celebrity cred for that! And Johnson is a famous pro wrestler, formerly known as "The Rock," and movie star, who is not too poor himself.

Republicans -- PLEASE! Stop with the "Family Values" garbage!!

Yet another conservative/Republican hypocrite! The current Governor of Alabama is undergoing impeachment proceedings by a committee of the Republican-controlled Alabama Senate. Here's a link to an article about this: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/alabama-governor-faces-impeachment-hear...
It seems that the "right honorable" governor was cheating on his wife of 50 years with a high ranking woman on his staff. He is also a dermatologist and, to add religious hypocrisy to his resume, a former deacon at his church!

WHICH NATION IS OUR LONGTIME, MOST RELIABLE ALLY? RUSSIA OR ENGLAND?

Tagged:  

The latest attacks against a foreign country from Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, targets England, of all nations! Lyin' Don's Administration has quoted an editorial by former judge Andrew Napolitano. Napoitano fallaciously claimed that former POTUS, Barack Obama, went around American legal, espionage, and security forces, and enlisted (illegally, I might add) the services of British Intelligence to surveil Lyin' Don.

Republican so-called health care "PLAN" -- Rich people win "bigly!"

Tagged:  

The Republican Party has had at least 6 years to devise a national health care plan. It seems that they were certain that they would not win the Elections of 2016, because the plan they presented seems thrown together at the last minute. If they had been planning to have an electoral victory, they would have had a defensible plan ready in early January!

Anti-Semitism simmers just under the surface in America; sometimes it bubbles up!

Tagged:  

Here's a link to the latest story I have found on this topic: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/02/27/jewish-community-center-bomb-thre...
If you read the entire article, you will note that there has been a significant increase in anti-Semitic threats and actions since January, 2017. Is this a coincidence? Yeah! Right!

Is This the Start of Something sinister?

Tagged:  

Lyin' Don's White House is now the house of censorship. News organizations which are too critical of the current administration were barred today (Friday, February 24, 2017)!
John McCain defended a free press in a most articulate way, before today's censorship. This from USA Today: "If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free -- and many times adversarial — press," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaking on NBC's Meet The Press. "And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time — that's how dictators get started."

Not only Muslims hate Jews!

Tagged:  

It has been postulated here that those who hate Jews, even in America, are mostly Muslims. I have been trying to awaken some who post and/or read here that many of those who hate Jews claim to be Christian. And many of those are Christian Americans. I am NOT claiming that all, or even most, American Christians hate Jews. Neither am I claiming that the POTUS-elect is anti-Semitic. I am also NOT STATING that the POTUS-elect will build death camps.

John Glenn -- Much More than "just" another American hero!

Tagged:  

Oh, yes. John Glenn was the first American to circle the earth in a space capsule. And, at age 77, he became the oldest person to go into space. But, John Glenn was much more than that.

Obama -- a real leader. Lyin' Don -- a faux leader.

Tagged:  

Recently, at a rally for Hillary, President Obama was speaking and a demonstrator interrupted his speech. Now, sadly, we have seen many protesters interrupt many politicians. When the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like gets interrupted, his usual response is to encourage the crowd, who are overwhelmingly supporters of his, to beat up the protester(s), or he states rudely, "Kick 'em out!"

U.S. economy improving -- You will not read this in the MSCM (MainStream Conservative Media).

Tagged:  

In the third quarter of 2016, the Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP), increased by 2.9%. That's about double the increase in the second quarter! https://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/national/gdp/gdphighlights.pdf

But, there is even more good economic news. The unemployment rate has been at or below 5% for 12 consecutive months. That's an entire year! http://data.bls.gov/pdq/SurveyOutputServlet
And this is true even though more Americans have been entering the labor force since the employment picture has improved.

I hope this is incorrect speculation

Tagged:  

But it is starting to appear across the internet, and a former NSA worker who lives in Mexico for his own protection is stating that he believes, that Julian Assange (wikileaks) is either "detained" or dead.

Since Hillary and her minions have been thoroughly exposed by wikileaks "dumps" - not conservative sites, but Hillary's, Podesta's, and others' OWN WORDS -- such drastic goings on (re Assange) are believable, to say the least:

Another child saved by a police officer!

Tagged:  

I will link you to an article with an embedded video of a police officer responding to an emergency call and saving a little boy who had stopped breathing. I first saw the video on TV, but I spotted the article and I want to bring it to the attention of those who read here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/inspired-life/wp/2016/10/21/my-son-i...

Lyin' Don is so disengaged from real life, he does not understand the electoral process -- at all!

Tagged:  

Really...you can't make this stuff up!
When you've lived like a super-rich person your entire life, you have no idea what the electoral process is. Has the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, ever voted in person -- in his entire life!? Probably not! And he claims to be so smart! ("I have a very good brain. I know more about ISIS than the generals.") Yet, he fails to comprehend the simple fact that one who is not a citizen of this country cannot vote in this country. Duh!!

Another positive story about a police officer

A white police officer spotted a young, African-American male walking in an area where few people walked. He did NOT hassle the young man, He did NOT arrest the young man, He did NOT shoot the young man. Rather he and other officers with whom he serves helped the young man. Read what they did and why they did it here: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/this-teenager-was-walking-for-hours-to-...

After the election - what?

Tagged:  

This topic has been under discussion in our extended (mostly Christian conservative) family. And primarily regarding Kasich, for whom we who live in Ohio have voted for twice. The consensus is not that if Trump loses, civil war will "break out" amongst Republicans. No, we believe, to a man and woman, that conservatives will exit the republican party in droves. In other words, there will be only establishment types like Ryan left in what's left of the party. Why?

Antisemitism is alive an well in America today

Some posters here have questioned whether or not antisemitism is really a problem in today's America for Jews. I am linking you to an article about a University of California course which has a clear antisemitic bias. Jews on campuses (and elsewhere) throughout America face psychological and physical threats every day in this country. Bigotry of any people can lead to the long-time scapegoats of bigots for at least 2000 years -- the Jews.

America: Leader in the War on Drugs? Or escape hatch for terrorist/drug dealers?

Tagged:  

This is NOT a partisan attack. The events started when W was POTUS, but are continuing under Obama. Columbian officials had arrested, and were trying for their crimes, 14 horrendous individuals, led by one of the most notorious drug lords in the drug-infested history of Columbia -- Hernan Giraldo Serna! In 2008, these 14 men were whisked away to America in a secret deal with the Columbian government to face trail for drug charges here. This made for great headlines in America! Right?
