AFTER YESTERDAY COMES TODAY

After nine months (43 weeks of body changes) a baby Boy or Girl is delivered into this world.  After Week 1 of your pregnancy.…to…Week 42 of your pregnancy...  all the changes of the body, pains, sleepless nights and difficulties of yesterday no longer matter once the Doctor says congratulations, TODAY you’ve just given birth to a healthy bouncing baby Boy/Girl…Or maybe the news was not so delightful, “I’m sorry your baby was stillborn”, “born blind”, “born with Down’s syndrome”.

Life is so complex, yet a fortune has been spent and made by many claiming to have the formula for success and happiness.

Sometimes I think we make life more complicated than it needs to be.  If we all could step back and see life through the lens of a child once again, we might remember being in awe of nature.  The growth of a fruit tree, the bloom of flowers, the morning dew, the stars in the sky, the moon and the clouds, raindrops, and butterflies.

Yet in all the examples given there has been a progression from YESTERDAY’S struggles to TODAY’S triumph or success.  We all know that not everything follows such progression.

Winning the Lottery has no rhythm or rhyme, nor does life progression.  For a poor person,  Life changes from poor YESTERDAY to rich TODAY in an instance. Rich people also win the Lottery,

One thing I know for sure, that after YESTERDAY comes TODAY.  I don’t claim to have a new concept, formula or answer…just a word of encouragement.  Please, don’t give up nor give in.  Your YESTERDAY may have been too sad to write about, too difficult to describe or maybe too dark to share.  The kid inside me tells me, it can’t rain forever…one day the sun will shine again, flowers will bloom once more, and someday Spring and Summer will come again…maybe TODAY?

In the world of Politics, YESTERDAY we experienced eight years of grace (from President Obama), character, and a display of Profile in Courage constantly under Fire from the Conservative Right (who once said they stood for Moral and Character).  TODAY before our very eyes we’re experiencing a different view; disgrace, ignorance, and embarrassment from Trump.  My fellow Americans, “What A Different A Day Makes”

Like most people, our YESTERDAY is filled with a mix bag…some happiness, sadness, some bright, some dark and certainly some blue…such is LIFE.  I must admit, I sometimes struggle to understand one’s YESTERDAY life, which was filled so bright with promises and a willing spirit to do whatever it takes to make life better for others, yet that same bright life of YESTERDAY we hear on TODAY’S news dies in a plane crash.  Situations as such, I think cause most to pause and think, wonder and ponder about YESTERDAY and how to handle their TODAY.

The unique and most powerful thing in life is,  one cannot always predict from their YESTERDAY experiences what their TODAY will be.

Gurus are everywhere selling books, videos, seminars and more.  From Psychology to Spiritual…they all are willing to share (for a price) their plans to Happiness and Success.

One thing I know for sure, Life is an experience and is to be experienced.  I think the one thing we all can agree on is…

AFTER YESTERDAY COMES TODAY

AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY

Life is to be alive!   William Purkey (author) seems to have captured me in a nutshell on Life, he said, ” Dance like no one is watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like no one is listening, Live like it’s heaven on earth” I like to believe that’s me…who are you?

So much in life is grey and not so clear.  Inner City Blues is real.  Kids killing kids, girls selling their bodies, parents on crack, children raising children and the ugly struggle goes on.  Who hears the concerns and cries of a ghetto child?  If they are heard, why do we have so many of them?  I imagine the thought of, ” AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY” may be difficult to see from where they live.  Although the sky is everywhere, Life struggles can prevent one from seeing how magnificent the Blue is.

Not everyone lives in the Ghetto, but everyone lives under the Blue Sky.

Relationships of any kind are challenging.  Consider a single parent or family trying to raise a child in America when the income falls short.  The notion of a Blue Sky is not so Blue.  Many people fall into the category of earning too much to receive a break from the system while on the other hand, not enough to keep up with education, housing, and health.  Is their life, AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY?

I wonder about those who are born disabled or became disabled for whatever reason…those who are unable to walk, see, smell touch or taste. All the senses needed to experience life.  Is life, AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY for them?

In my previous blogs, I’ve questioned myself and others, How is it that people of different race seemingly love each other, work together, laugh, cry and play together then vote for someone who stands for opposite of the life they live? Why do many Americans support double standards?  Is the SKY BLUE to those who have been mistreated unjustly?  When racism and bigotry continue to exist in America is life AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY for the victim?

Some of us are lucky to embrace,  “AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY”  for a moment, a day, a week maybe season…but never forever, life isn’t that way.  Most of us have experienced the agony of defeat, the anguish of illness, disappointments, failure, divorce, death, joblessness, hopelessness, being homeless and much worst.

When our SKY is bright and Blue is it possible we can become an umbrella to stop the rain from falling down on others who have reached the end of their road?  Can we give without expecting something in return?  To those who have a season of BLUE SKIES can you share an hour, a day, a night with a less fortunate one?  We all can agree the SKY is free for everyone, why can’t we all experience,  “AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY”

Just think from New York to Louisiana, we all live under the same big BLUE SKY.  We all know that between the two states are a lot of issues.  The question becomes, what can you do to change or improve the issues so that more could experience that feeling,  “AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY”.

I believe we all belong to one race, the Human Race.  Racism is not born-it is taught.  It is up to us to teach something different.  Let us not be naive to think we can change or save all from getting wet from the rain of life.  Let’s face it, some people love the darkness, selfishness, love to hate, enjoy believing everything revolves around them.  In my opinion, they think they own the BLUE SKY.  Their BLUE SKY is an illusion, it’s not the real one in the big BLUE SKY.

One’s character is important.  People with good moral character will try to help others experience a good feeling in their life, if only for a moment.  A narcissistic person would probably think the Sky was made for them only.  Sometimes it takes courage to help others to see the Blue Sky.  Recently I was impressed by the words of Senator Jeff Flake as he gave his retirement speech to Congress.  If you have not read it or heard it, please watch the attached video below.  It was truly a Kennedy moment, Profile In Courage.

If we cannot get a season of BLUE SKIES, I hope we all could get at the very least a moment, ” AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY”  in our life.

AS CLEAR AS THE BLUE SKY

 

LIFE IN AMERICA

LIFE IN AMERICA is more than just music- it’s history unfolding with a soulful melody.   It’s a sport that never gives up nor gives in but constantly yearns for victory.  It’s medicine, that heals the soul. It’s a love story shared by young and old, rich and poor.  It’s political, dividing right from left and wrong from right. It’s justice, blinded to all points of view.
It’s spiritual, it touches something inside which cannot be described. It’s family, it connects us all at those rare moments in spite of our different views.  AND of course, it is MUSIC, filled with HOPE, SPIRIT, JOY, DETERMINATION, PRIDE, DISTINCTION and PROMISES.

 

LET’S TALK ABOUT RACE

The Republicans had no idea they would one day produce a Trump as their cupbearer, shame on them.  On the other hand, the Democratic Party produced President Barrack Obama, he may not have given us all we wanted but make no mistake, no one in America or abroad was embarrassed by him or his Presidency. On the contrary, we knew we had an intelligent, competent wise leader.

The Dark Secrets of America have been with us for a long time now.  Slavery, The Jim Crow Era, Nazis, KKK, Black Americans being hung, raped, genitals removed, even worst and more, the terrors that are too painful to write.  White Americans must understand we came on The Road Less Traveled.  Most of our Pain, Confusion, Anger and other malfunctions are from such brutal history we endured as our welcoming mat to America.  This is not a blanket excuse for Black Americans to use,  but it is an invitation to have an honest dialogue of America History towards Black Americans.

I hope we can all agree that The America Creed was written extraordinarily well.   A summation of the Creed states that all were created equal and that all would be protected under the law.  Years later, President Kennedy 1961 Inaugural speech-he urges citizens to participate in public service and “ask not what your country can do for you–ask what you can do for your country”.   Perhaps, one of the greatest Inaugural speech ever given in America History.  Black Americans were confused by what was written, what was said and America’s expectation of them.   History has already been written about Blacks contributions to America.  Frustration and tension grew among Black Americans in the sixty and early seventies. Demonstrations, protesting and marches were being held throughout the country.  A resounding chant could be heard “No Justice-No Peace”.  America was not living up to its creed and Black Americans were no longer tolerating America’s double standards.  Black Americans began to voice their concerns for Better Housing, Jobs, Education, Voting, racial discrimination and much more.  Although they were Disillusioned by America, they were determined to help America live up to what America said it stood for.

Although much has changed since the sixties, racism and bigotry still exist.

In today’s America, Black Americans and people of color are still pushing for equal justice under the law.  Far too many Black Americans are being killed and arrested disproportionately comparative to other groups by Police.   Although we have the right to vote, Republicans have made it harder for many people of color to vote.  Offering fewer places in Urban Communities to vote and closing Voting precincts early.  “Souls To The Poll” was a popular movement but Republicans killed it because the majority of voters who participated generally vote Democrat.

We’ve come a long way, but we still MUST deal with RACE in America.

Electing President Obama, was not an end-all,  but was a true beginning of confronting America’s darkest secrets…slavery, racism, bigotry, White Supremacy and other hate groups.

America must admit and deal with how this country has unequally and unfairly treated Black Americans since slavery.  Black Americans are no longer marching in the streets, no longer singing, “We Shall Over Come Someday”.  America is now being forced to deal with its demons.  Confederate Monuments (once proudly held) are being taken down from federal buildings because we’ve since learned that those statues were placed long after the Civil War.  In fact, they were placed during Dr. King’s era to remind him and his race of  White Supremacy.  We’re now learning much more about The National Anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner” “And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave”.  So when Key references the “foul footstep’s” of the “hireling and slave” who “no refuge could save” from “the gloom of the grave” in the third verse, he’s referring to the killing of Colonial Marines.  “The Star-Spangled Banner is as much a patriotic song as it is a diss track to black people who had the audacity to fight for their freedom.”

The Electoral College and 30% of deplorable people elected Trump.  It seems Trump is using his Powerful Position to separate us rather than bring us together.   We all know about the many outlandish things he has said in the past of, women, Hispanic and others.  It seems when it comes to Black Americans, he takes a different tone.  Like calling Quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other Black Football Players, “Son-Of-Bitches” for having a quiet protest of the injustice which still exists in America for people of color.  Trump was outraged by the Athletes protest but was understanding towards the Neo-Nazi, in fact, he stated he saw good people (even though they ranted evil acts towards Jews and ran over innocent people).  Trump was neither OUTRAGED nor confused by their actions.  Instead, he empathized with them as he explained, they were merely trying to have a peaceful March.

It’s a new day in America.

No more Dark Secrets, hidden tales or Super Hero to save the masses.  History has been written and technology will help us get to the facts quickly.

Just as the Republicans produced a Trump, The Democratic Party, Liberals, Progressives, Black Americans and other people of color are all armed together and ready to challenge, confront and deal with Racism and Bigotry head on.

Change has finally come to America, we have no other choice now, “LET’S TALK ABOUT RACE”

“We Shall Overcome” “Yes We Can” create the America we all read about.

 

BORN AGAIN

After years and years of Dog Whistle vote baiting, Republicans would have you believe they are surprised by what Trump said or did.  In my opinion, they created this Monster.  Republicans won many elections playing the Race card and now they’re pretending to be upset by Trump’s actions.  They are so upset that only a handful are speaking out publicly and from that handful, not one calling for resignation or impeachment.  Republicans control the House and The Senate, and yet not one impeachment hearing is underway.

BORN AGAIN THE KKK

Trump has elevated The Klan and other hate groups to feel welcome and empowered in this White House.  These racist Hate Groups have raised two times more money than Democrats.  One might say they’re “Fired Up & Ready To Go”.

Long before Trump, The Republican Party has repeatedly courted poor Whites to vote against their own best interests as long as they made them feel they were better than Black Folks.

   I cannot nor should you allow The Republican Party to pretend to be Outraged by what they’re now witnessing in this country.  They are as guilty as Trump and yes Blood is on their hand.  As my friend Dr. Mack Jones has often said, “Watch what they do not what they say”.  The verdict is in The Republican Party and Trump is guilty of cultivating a comfortable atmosphere for hate groups to grow.  As we witness in Charlottesville, these acts of hate groups are more likely to grow while this administration is in power.

Trump was born into racism, his father was a racist.  Trump is very comfortable palling around with racist people.  Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, and others alike shares one common thread which binds them; Confederate Conservativism, they believe in the Alt-Right Movement.  “Take Back Their Country” is their mantra, The Alt-Right is nothing more than a dressed up name for the modern-day KKK.  Many in The Republican Party are as guilty as Trump.  They supported and courted race-baiting elections long before Trump.  So when Trump appointed Steve Bannon to become his Chief Strategist many Republicans said nothing.  Bannon, who is not known for being friendly towards people of color, also views his own constituents poorly.  In a recent New York Times interview Bannon described his constituents as being extreme, stupid and easily manipulated.  Nonetheless, Bannon is an expert for ramping up many Whites to feel victimized especially during the Obama Presidency.

Race baiting may win elections, but it destroys democracy.  It’s very easy to put poor people against each other.  This type of Politics does more harm than good, it divides us and if continued, it will destroy us. Furthermore, we must fight against the notion that winning is everything or to win at any cost justifies the means.

 We’ve had a Civil War in the past, but it seems The Republican Party didn’t truly learn.  Since The Civil War, they continue to push separation rather than unity.  Today’s Republicans seemingly are trying to rewrite History.  They would have you believe that The Confederate Leaders were Heroes rather than Treasonists.  Let me be very clear, they committed Treason.  Remember The Civil War was fought from 1861 to 1865.  In the early 1950’s monuments, statues, streets and more were given in honoring Treasonists.  To this day, many Republicans still salute and revere the Rebel Flag as their Flag.

  In 1965 The Voting Rights Act was passed by President LB Johnson.  Upon signing The Voting Right Act, President Johnson knew he had given the South away for many years to come. History has proven him right, thus it is written

ARE THE KKK BORN AGAIN TODAY?

During The Clinton Bush-era, we didn’t really notice racism to the degree we now know.  It’s fair to say Trump got things started with the questioning of President Obama’s birth.  After that, many Repubs were comfortable disrespecting President Obama.  I will never forget, while President Obama was addressing The State Of The Union-Congressman Joe Wilson, yelled out, “You Lied” (because of this foolish act Wilson received more contributions and donations than he ever had; the sad truth is that he was supported by many Republicans) for a brief he became their hero.  Trump recognized that racism was still very much alive and well in America and Republicans learned that the more they pushed President Obama’s race and disrespected him, the more elections they could win (and they did).

Trump’s crowd size is large in part because he’s loud and unapologetic about being a racist.  It’s obvious Trump has helped the extreme Right feel they have a friend in The White House.

My challenge to The Republican Party is to demonstrate their concerns through actions, by having hearings on the Article Of Impeachment of Donald Trump.

In conclusion, our former Vice President gets the last word.  “This is a moment for this nation to declare what the president can’t with any clarity, consistency, or conviction: There is no place for these hate groups in America. Hatred of blacks, Jews, immigrants—all who are seen as “the other”—won’t be accepted or tolerated or given safe harbor anywhere in this nation”.

STOP TRUMP He’s Unfit

It’s very apparent now that the Trump picture is 20/20 clear.  He’s a fascist sympathizer.  Trump has made it impossible for his defenders to claim Trump was taken out of context, misunderstood or his comments were/are misrepresented.  In fact, we know now his staff prepared him for his bizarre press conference today.  All bets are off, Trump made it very very clear that he sympathizes with White Supremacy.  America heard Donald Trump for themselves, defend the KKK.  Trump described them as the real victims.  Journalists and major News outlet are perplexed, outraged and confused by Trump words and actions.

During a heated press conference in New York on Tuesday, President Trump defended Confederate monuments while incorrectly blaming much of the deadly violence in Charlottesville over the weekend on “alt-left” protesters.   Meanwhile, many people of color are outraged for different reasons (many people of color were already convinced of who they knew Trump to be).  Trump missed the real point…many Black Americans are uncomfortable with the Rebel Flag, Slaves Owner, and Slavery.  Instead, Trump tried to help the Klan feel comfortable with their hatred “blame on both sides”. Historically his views have been wrong on so many fronts and my fellow Americans, he’s wrong now.  Trump further included that the group on the other side were far worse.  “Many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee,”  Mr. Trump went on to say “This week, it is Robert E. Lee, next week, Stonewall Jackson.  Is it George Washington next? You have to ask yourself, where does it stop”?  He said nothing that the first American president had owned slaves.  Mr. Trump said that the portrayal of nationalist protesters in the city were not all Nazis or white supremacists, and he said it was unfair to suggest that they were.  I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, as he boldly stood there stating his belief.  This man can never be President to me nor for me.

America is a country without a President, which is why we must

STOP TRUMP

Republicans, are not totally innocent…Remember they courted the far Right for many years, especially in close elections.  We all know when you repeatedly play with fire, you destined to get burn.  Repubs just got burned having this guy as their leader.  If Repubs continue to protect and defend this empty suit of a Clown they too need to be removed!  Speaking of removal, the Russia connections dots are lining up even more.  The Arc of the moral Universe bending towards Justice may take time, but it doesn’t bend on it’s on.  All of us including Republicans must condemn Racism in the strongest way possible.  Without any regrets or apology.  After Trump’s press conference KKK David Duke twitted “Thank You Mr. President”…as ugly as it has Duke summed it up rightly for the Klan’s.

I must confess that I and many on the Left hate everything about Trump.  Trump is guilty as sin, he’s a terror sympathizer, disrespect women and people of color.  People of color believe he won the Republican primaries simply because he doubted President Obama citizenship as an American.  Trump and his supporters hated the first Black President so much that they were willing to elect this clown as President  (his lack of knowledge and Political understanding was irrelevant to them).

STOP TRUMP

The obvious… race must be discussed in depth in America, are White Americans really ready to deal with this ugly wound in our history?  The Republican party must own much of Trump as Trump display his hatred and ignorance.  As previously mentioned, Republicans played the race card (dog whistle to the far right; kkk) on numerous occasions during election seasons.

Must Trump be removed from the Presidency for our country to heal and move forward?  Do we Americans, deserve someone with better character, more intelligence to hold such a highly prestigious office?

One thing I know for sure, we don’t need a racist sympathizer.

Americans, please search your heart…why do we hate people of color?  Why can’t Conservative Talk Radio stop with the WE vs THEM…THEY vs US, and of course there’re favorite, “TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY” dialogue 24/7?

My fellow Americans it’s 2017 and I’m saddened to say racism still is too much alive in America…We must STOP, “IN THE NAME OF LOVE”

Lastly, can someone help me understand this dichotomy…how is it that neighbors in America’s towns, communities and other segments of this Nation on a daily basic demonstrates true compassion for one another.  In fact more often than not they, help each other, laugh together, fight together, play sports together when one loses a loved one they even cry together.  I’m  dumbfounded as to how these very same people more often vote against each other’s best interest. I’m totally confused and left perplexed trying to understand our divide.  A more pointed question I wish to add is what is it or why is it, so many White American hate Black people so much?  I hope someone out there will enlighten me so that I am no longer confused.

The saddest commentary of it all is that lives were lost on Aug. 12, 2017, in Charlottesville Virginia{At least 3 dead, 19 injured as a result of Saturday’s violence}by the Alt Right who Trump describes as “many good people on their side”.  Please give a moment of silence for those who died including  Heather Heyer.  Heather was a paralegal who assisted clients through bankruptcy she dedicated her life to standing up for those she felt were not being heard.  Heather was OUTRAGED with Trump racist tendency, lack of MORALS & CHARACTER, Outraged by Trumps’s many lies, to be more direct Heather was beyond OUTRAGE to know Trump was UNFIT to be President.  https://youtu.be/E3NRgxhKqM8

ACTIONS OF A FRIGHTEN PRESIDENT

Trump has given The White House and the Presidency a whole new makeover.  Pundits, Historians and we the people are mesmerized by the day-to-day leaks coming from this White House.  To add insult to injury, never have we experienced a President who lies often, threatens others openly, insults his Attorney General he selected, insults and tries to discredit “REAL” News.  Trump has proven he’s capable of denying all facts of his involvement and collusion with Russia.  It seems no matter how low journalists set the bar, Trump proves he can go lower.

Hardball with Chris Matthews of MSNBC gives a scolding review of the ACTIONS OF A FRIGHTEN PRESIDENT so clearly and vividly for all to see and understand (please check out the links at the end of this blog to enrich even more the full context of what I’m saying).

As we all know,  Fear is said to be the most powerful emotion known to humankind. More powerful even than love. Our very survival depends on it.  Fear is triggered in the most primitive part of our brain. The part responsible for alerting and protecting us from danger.  Keeping one safe, in Trump’s case, from getting Impeached and going to jail.

 

What Emotions Do Sociopaths Feel?

They are good at imitation and impression management. They spend their entire lives watching people, mimicking and mirroring them.  Trump seems to experience anger and envy in full force, though any rages he displays are short-lived.  He probably does not feel fear in the ways that normal people do, and so they cannot truly be depressed, or anxious, or stressed.  Many sociopaths use anxiety and depression as pity plays.  I believe Trump knew he was lying when he first called real News, “FAKE NEWS”.  Trump prefers to be viewed as colorful and grand as his language: “The Best” “The Greatest” “Tremendous”  “Huge” are just a few ways he would like the media to see him.

Fear of exposure

The second thing that a sociopath fear is exposure. He fears that people will find out who he really is. He will go to great lengths to cover for himself.  A sociopath is capable of compulsive pathological lying, manipulation, and deception. He will go to great lengths and be very creative to hide his real true self

It’s not that the media is fixated on Trump and Russia, but it is Trump himself who continues to tweet and knowingly make false statements of his involvement with Russia, which makes this News interest even more fascinating than it would have been otherwise.  So now all the questions begin…”what did he know and when did he know it”

Trump is behaving like a guilty person, seeking pardons before being charged.  C’mon Repubs, that’s laughable on its face.  Why would an innocent person seek pardon before their trial???

On a serious note, I’m very concerned about this country called America.  To be in the hands of, “ACTIONS OF A FRIGHTEN PRESIDENT” is dangerous.  The decisions made by a fearful person can possibly destroy us all and possibly destroy our democracy as we know it.  It is my hope that Prosecutor Muller quickly gets to the bottom of this investigation so that our liberty may live, justice is served and democracy is saved.

Finally, many of us know what it is like to live with or be around a fearful person, to add on ones who’s personality possibly labeled as a Social path.  Will he/she lie, lie to me, attack me, threaten me or people I know, destroy evidence,  mischaracterize the facts/in short lying, fire innocent people.  My fellow Americans, there is no telling what this person will do when they are fearful and frighten.  We cannot, nor should we risk such neurotic behavior (too much is at risk).  It clearly appears Trump is out-of-control and needs to be removed.

“ACTIONS OF A FRIGHTEN PRESIDENT” too risky to risk!

Can AMERICA Take 4 Years Of TRUMP

Before I get started with my current blog, please review some of my previous blogs: “DANGEROUS RICH, ARROGANT, WHITE & PRESIDENT” “SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE LOCKED UP OR IMPEACHED” “TRUMP MEDIA WAR” “TRUMP and ALEX JONES” “DONALD TRUMP, had enough yet” “TRUMP and PUTIN” “Illegitimate President” “WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE” “Why Do Republicans See Themselves As Victims” “Sean Hannity & “FAKE NEWS” & “REPUBLICANS WIN? BUT LOSE CREDIBILITY”  In every blog, I challenge Trump, his administration, and his supporters to be an honest defender.  Six months in and it feels like more than a year.  I think we’re all learning something here, not expectantly, that we’re entertaining a fool 24/7 and it is exhausting.  Obviously, Trump is used to being who he is, but for most of us, especially those in the Political arena, find it unbearable to put up with such a foolish person day in and day out.

Can we, (or even a better question) are we equipped to tolerate someone like Trump for four years?  {Don’t mean to remind you of his infamous bus ride, “Grab her by her Pu**y”}

The firing of Comey, “Who can I Pardon”, “Can I pardon myself”???  This guy is dirtier than dirt.  No one with such character should ever be rewarded, and to do so will only embolden his ignorance even more.  Trump is ignorant enough…why embolden him?  Repubs, when will you call Trump out in public as you do in private?  Is there anyone in your party willing to tell this President he’s Naked?  President John F. Kennedy continues to encourage us from his grave, “Sometimes The Party Asks Too Much”.   Repubs, here’s your moment to step up and speak out LOUD!

So where are we now???

Did Trump and his administration collude with Russia?  Did Trump, his son, son-in-law and his administration lie about their involvement with Russia prior to the Presidential election?  Are we to believe,  according to Trump, Sean and many members of Fox News, anyone questioning or investigating Trump & Russia is considered as “Fake News”?

It seems every day with this administration we wake up to chaos…

Trump either tweets some stupid shit or one of his surrogates will say something dumb.  In either case, Trump and his administration is too much to entertain for four years.

We are a Country of Laws, Order, Character, Moral rules…all of which Trump is not.

In light of these facts

CAN AMERICA TAKE FOUR YEARS OF TRUMP

Has Trump numbed us that we’re no longer OUTRAGED by his ignorance, his actions, his words?  If so, we as a country cannot and will not continue to be who we say we are.  We cannot allow this kind of behavior to dictate our way of life.  More importantly, we cannot allow Trump to continue to be President.  Obviously, he’s unfit and we’ve heard enough, seen enough and frankly, we’ve had enough.   Republicans, what ever happened to character?   I use to believe that character was the foundation of leadership.  Although Trump spoke at a Scout rally, he doesn’t uphold the standards that The Scout Laws promote: “A Scout is Trust Worthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient Cheerful, Thrifty,  Brave,  Clean and Reverent”.  Being married multiple of times and bragging about his sexual encounters, didn’t stop Pat Robertson and The Religious Right from anointing him.

My fellow Americans I’m exhausted from the lies, deceptions and double standards.  I hope you are too, with every day being a new scandal which is why I ask,

CAN AMERICANS TAKE FOUR  YEARS OF TRUMP?

Republicans are now peddling a new line to push upon us, that goes like this:  The President and his Administration are new at this, they didn’t know when they were lying or when they met with Russia, it was wrong.  Americans, Repubs are asking you and I to be as ignorant as Trump, his sons, daughter, son-in-law, and his administration.  “CAN AMERICANS TAKE FOUR YEARS OF TRUMP”?

I hope not.

DANGEROUS rich, arrogant, white & PRESIDENT

HOW MUCH WILL IT TAKE BEFORE WE THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS BECOME OUTRAGED!!!

Trump’s Presidency has caused us to go from surprised, to embarrassed, to confused, and to out right accepting lying as an acceptable excuse to refute facts.

 New York Times as reported JUNE 23, 2017 lays out how many times and how often Trump lies.  It’s not just his lies, but his arrogance displayed (as if he’s privileged to do so because he’s RICH and WHITE, with the extra bonus of being PRESIDENT).  I must admit this is very disturbing and upsetting for me.  The many things Trump has done and said are totally contrary to what Republicans once stood for.

The media has done a good job keeping us all informed of his connections with Russia, as well as, the contradictions made by him, his family and his administration.  My frustration is greater than what is reported on TV, my frustration is probably that of many people of color frustrations; especially Black Americans.  Among many Black Americans, the conversations begin much like this:  “What if President Obama allowed Michelle or one of his daughters to sit in his place” or “What if President Obama fired the investigator probing his administration” or ” What if President Obama met with a Russian agency to get dirt on Romney”…this kind of thinking and talk goes on all the time among many Black Americans.  So, when we’re asked to comply, accept and conform, we lash out because we’re ANGRY and OUTRAGED at the blatant double standards that are being displayed right before our very eyes for all to see.

Can we both agree that people with very little money management skills probably do foolish things.  Now add in Wealth, Arrogance, White Privilege and being President Of The United States.  I think one can easily conclude that there is a DANGEROUS person in charge.  For the first time it’s crystal clear we’re living in a divided country.  The worst of us voted (many who did not vote in the past two Presidential elections) for Trump (from many Black perspective, because he disrespected President Obama and doubted his citizenship as an American).  Trump did and said what many whites were saying privately, thus he became their President.

There is no need to pretend that The State Of Our Union Is Strong (Please stop with the lies as we get enough of that from Trump).  The State Of Our Union is not strong.  In fact, it is divided more than ever before.  Trump has made, at the very least, 37% of White Americans feel comfortable being a racist vs more Blacks and people of color feeling more anger towards the America they now see.   These people of color are not ready to join hands and sing, “We Shall Over Come Someday”

AMERICA if you are as disturbed and OUTRAGED as I am, (and many people of color are) allow those of us with opposing views speak out and be televised in areas where Trump supporters live.  If I had the power to compose a list to communicate our OUTRAGE to Trump supporters I would have Charles Blow, Ana Navarro, Dr. Mack H. Jones, Dr. Franklin Jones, Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Major Smith, YOU and perhaps me…Point is, we are OUTRAGED at this double standard given to a RICH, ARROGANT, WHITE MAN who happens to be PRESIDENT.

The temptation to write about what is on tv daily and is obviously controversial, crossed my mind.  Maybe I fumbled, maybe I missed an opportunity, or maybe I just wanted to write what I felt and what I hear from many who are disturbed.

POWER given to a FOOL is frightening.

DANGEROUS, rich, arrogant, white & PRESIDENT…now, this is the most frightening of them all.
