Just Saying: False Fish Feeding Frenzy!

shark

I have been trying my very best to not comment on current events.

I held my tongue when shrimpy little arrogant mask-wearing cowards in skinny jeans proclaimed themselves to be anti-fascists by becoming violent fascists.  I watched their personal attacks and extensive property destruction on lots of videos.

I did not comment on the “Don’t Shoot!” rallies, even though multiple eyewitnesses to the actual event testified, under oath, that it never happened. Nor, did I comment last week, when it was learned, during testimony to Congress by social media giants, that a Russian trolling group had actually used social media platforms to organize the “Don’t Shoot” protests with the sole purpose of causing civil unrest in our country. Why? Just because they could.  It would be laughable….if I were Russian.

Then, too, it was amazing to have Donna Brazile confirm what many of us already knew.  The Democratic party primaries were rigged against Bernie Sanders by Hillary Clinton. Ms. Brazile’s disclosure that she felt her life was in danger after the Seth Rich murder speaks volumes.

Naturally, it would get my goat to learn there are actually college students, and others in this country, that think free speech is only allowable if it doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings.  A worse indictment of a failed and biased educational system, I can’t imagine. Sometimes, I ponder when, if ever, these all-knowing, overly-sensitive college administrators and teachers are going to figure out that their success at limiting, and in some instances eradicating conservative colleagues, thought, opinion and discussion from college campuses has only been an self-deluding and self-defeating exercise in cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

It appears that there is an inability or unwillingness to teach critical thinking skills, or at least a lesson in the Karma of what goes around comes around regarding restricting the Constitutional right to free speech.  If you restrict or outlaw anyone’s right to free speech, someday, someone will restrict and outlaw yours.  We are either all going to be free, or eventually, no one will be free.

Normally, any or all of those things could have triggered one of my….just saying….opinion blogs. However, this morning the line is way too far behind some folks to ignore.

I woke up early this morning and logged onto my computer to try and learn more about the horrendous massacre in that small Texas church.  It angered me to learn that a mentally-ill, self-proclaimed atheist, with a history of domestic assault who should never had access to any fire arm had attacked the church of his in-laws causing the deaths of 26 innocent people, including many children…one only 18-months old.  My sympathy, heart and prayers go out to the affected families and that entire community.

Then….it happened! I lit up like a Christmas tree as my eyes fell upon an article about President Trump….feeding fish!  First of all, what a stupid event to report on. Especially on a day when our country is mourning the loss of so much innocent life. It was absolutely flabbergasting that with all of the chaos and trouble in our nation and world that several media outlets took the time and chose to make the call to, yet again, maliciously doctor a video just to make fun our president.

Of course, yet again, a person only had to watch the entire unedited video to learn that Japan’s Prime Minister had fed the fish the exact same way and amount as our president.  I have included a link to the unedited video of the fish feeding for anyone who is actually interested in the truth.

The atrocity committed by the shooter in Texas is pure evil. The intentional manipulative lying and disgustingly childish bullying by the media is embarrassing and shameful. They remind me of a pack of mean junior high school girls. Maybe, junior high school mean-girls training has replaced ethics courses at our college journalism schools?  It would appear so…….just saying

What is on my mind today? Clinton, DNC, Trump Dossier and the Franken-Coleman Recount

What is on my mind today?

It is a small, small world.

Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to read today’s news headlines only to see a very familiar name that I spent many hours working with one fall and winter during my sojourn at the Secretary of State’s Office.

The lawyer named in association with the Clinton campaign, DNC and the Trump Russian Dossier, is none other than Al Franken’s lead attorney for his recount ….Marc Elias.

As my old Swedish grandmother used to say in a matter of fact tone of voice, “My, but isn’t that something.”

Just Saying: Bullying and Political Theater

2016election

Jennifer Holliday receiving death threats and backlash over performing at the Trump inauguration as reported in a CNN article is bullying pure and simple. It is not honorable. It is not justifiable and its sole goal is to silence opposing views. If the shoe was on the other foot and conservatives were doing this to Clinton supporters, they would be called new age “brown shirts” and rightfully so. Have Clinton’s supporters become the demeaning and intolerant tyrants that they profess to so vehemently oppose? In this case, it would appear so.

There is a vast difference between this type of mean-spirited tyrannical behavior and peaceful protesting. I condemn the former from any political source or group and wholly support the latter.
 
In addition, I believe that it is not honorable for the losing party’s elected members of Congress to boycott the inauguration of our next president. Have these members of Congress forgotten the first rule of politics…those that show up rule?  I cannot imagine the public and media outrage at Republicans had they refused to go to an Obama or Clinton inauguration. This political theater of boycotting the inauguration demonstrates a total lack of respect for the Constitution and Hillary Clinton’s adamant call during the presidential debates for the losing candidate and their supporters to respect election results and the peaceful transition of leadership. Their support for the politics of division will only serve to embolden our nation’s enemies at the cost of American lives when, not if, they test our new president.
 
Tomorrow I will watch the inauguration, be proud to be an American and celebrate the peaceful transition of power. I will pray for unity for our nation, respect for the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the rule of law; safety for our people; wisdom for leadership; and rigorous peaceful political debate. That all of our new governing officials come together with a sincere interest to do what is best for our nation as a whole and rediscover that our political system’s great strength has always been compromise.
 
I would encourage the members of Congress who are boycotting tomorrow’s inauguration to reconsider and take note of Trump’s philosophy of encouraging a “friendship” with Russia…it is important to keep your friends close, but more important to keep your enemies even closer….just saying.

Just Saying: Election Day, Tuesday, November 8….TOMORROW…No Vote=No Whining!

 

You either would have to be living under a rock or completely cut off from civilization not to know that our Presidential Election is tomorrow.

There is no excuse not to vote. As far as I am concerned, anyone that does not cast their ballot should lose all post-election family dinner table, work place and social media political whining  privileges.  Those privileges should not be reinstated until after the next election when said political slacker has opportunity rectify their failure to perform their civic duty.

No vote = no whining.

Politics 101 states that those that show up rule.  Government of the people, by the people and for the people only works when the people actively participate in elections by casting a ballot.

I believe that it is the civic duty of all eligible voters to cast a ballot. Our fellow country men and women of all races, genders and faith communities who have for over 200 years shed their blood and died to protect the sacred civil right of electing our own governmental leaders call out from their hallowed graves to each individual citizen’s conscience demanding that each of us do our part to strengthen our great nation by honoring their sacrifice and voting.  Then, peacefully respecting the outcome of the official election results.

As far as I am concerned, if you don’t vote, you have forfeited your right to complain about political or governmental issues.  That includes, but is not limited to, taxes, Supreme Court nominees, healthcare accessibility and cost, law and order, national security, terrorism, veteran care, religious persecution, foreign and domestic affairs, including elected official’s affairs, the economy, employment, education, environment, civil rights, and congressional gridlock.

Don’t be like the Giant, just filled with a lot of inflammatory hot air.

Be an enthusiastic doer, like Mickey!

On or before Tuesday, November 8….VOTE!

Just saying….
