The GOP elite are endorsing Trump right and left. Why? How can you put your morals in a corner and ignore the standards of decency to endorse a racist? Since when has Party Line been more important that having morals, values, and standards?
This rant includes the GOP “Better Way” means the freedom to be ripped off and Black Lives Matter movement.
Don’t be selfish, if you enjoy the rant share it.
I know a lot of people who won’t believe even this report that confirms that there was nothing illegal being done. Also, the report confirms that help could not arrive in time – and, even includes a finding that President Obama cleared help to be sent, but none was. In other words, we’ve wasted time and money trying to pin the blame on two people instead of blaming the whole system that allowed all of this. I’d like to point out that I can’t remember any of my friends getting all worked up over any other Embassy attacks that have happened, but the same ones have their panties in a bunch over this one. You have to wonder why. The truth is that we are not doing enough to protect our people when they serve our country overseas, but because of rhetoric and politics, we won’t fix what’s wrong. I haven’t had time to read the full report, but I plan on doing so.
I’m attaching a link to the NY Times article, as well as a link to the actual report.
The Republicans are calling it a stunt. They want to go on vacation, but the Democrats are tired of our children dying because the wrong person was able to purchase a weapon. Most Americans agree with the Democrats, but Speaker Ryan and the rest of the GOP love being able to scare their base with “Obama is coming for your guns” talk. The gun manufacturers are laughing all the way to the bank. When is enough enough?
I’ve been steaming about Donald Trump ever since he said that John McCain isn’t a war hero. He claims that nobody was insulted, well, I was insulted. I’ve always thought of Donald Trump as nothing but a blowhard with more money than sense and, with his campaign for President, he’s proving me correct. With even non-Republican friends saying things like, “I admire his honesty”, I thought I should write this blog to add some facts into Trump’s veneer.
While John McCain was flying missions over Vietnam and a POW, Donald Trump was using Daddy’s money and government deferments to attend Fordham University and, then the University of Pennsylvania. Once Trump graduated, he had a job at his father’s real estate company waiting for him and $200,000 in his pocket, according to a Washington Post article. Trump makes himself out to be a self-made man, but the truth is – he didn’t do this all on his own.
Hell, all of us could be rich if we started with family connections and $200,000 in our pocket. He isn’t someone to be admired. People who should be admired are the ones who started with nothing and rose to the top of the heap. People like Kenny Troutt (the founder of Excel Communications), Ralph Lauren (founder of Polo), Larry Ellison (Oracle founder), Oprah (like I have to tell you), Ursula Burns (CEO of Xerox), and John Paul Dejoria (co-founder of John Paul Mitchell) are the people to be admired. Each one of them started from the very bottom and they worked their way up into Billionaire status and (as far as I know), unlike Trump, not a bankruptcy among them.
It’s time to relegate Trump and the blowhards like him to the ignore zone. We shouldn’t be putting boys like him on pedestals and walking around clamoring like he’s worth our time. His comments regarding immigrants from Mexico pander to the lowest of Americans, whom we should really leave behind. Racists have no place in American society and, if Donald Trump wants to be their leader, let him do it outside of the view of TV cameras.

Pay attention to the fact that your state can refuse to expand medicaid, like Scott Walker recently did. By turning away the Federal money – poor people will be left without health insurance. One more item, small businesses won’t be hurt by Obama care – that’s one of those Conservative falsities (Conservatives love to lie). You need to have more than 50 employees to be affected.

I can’t believe this video has only received around 35,000 views. Turn the sound off if at work. The lyrics might be offensive to some, but the facts in the visuals will make a Tea Party Member’s head explode.
