Donald Trump, you’re such a loser!

After denigrating Mexicans, gays, women, Asians, African-Americans, veterans, Muslims, and a score of Republicans from his own party, Donald Trump has shown himself to be a bigot, racist, and unqualified to be President of the United States and Commander-in- Chief.

His latest vile language against his major Democratic contender, and a former Senator and Secretary of State, was not only vulgar, but totally uncalled for and only demonstrated further his lack of civility and qualifications to be President.

His uneducated and classless followers may applaud him, but this I can say without fail, Donald Trump, not only are you a loser, and 2016 will prove it, but,YOU ARE FIRED!

The Earth Is Dying

If I am ill, I listen to my doctor, but if I am a Republican, and a scientist tells me that the earth is ill, I respond by saying that "I am not a scientist."

Speaking of thugs and the mentally ill.

A White man with a gun, who kills 9 African Americans in their own church, while they are praying, is a mentally ill young man who needs help, and still should be able to own a gun for "self protection," and to be able to resist the tyranny of his own government.

A Black man with a gun is a "thug", and in reality, even though he is a kid with a toy pistol, killing him is justified because he is a threat to our greater society.

Of course, there is no racial divide in our country, and the Confederate flag is just an historical souvenir of the Civil War and a sign of pride for the southern states, no matter that it was never a flag used by any rebel state during that terrible war, and only came into prominence in the 20th century when the KKK began to display it in their rallies.

I am literally sick to death for what has become of my country!

There is still hope for my country.

I just saw a young southeast Asian neighbor girl skateboarding in front of my house. She must not have been much more than 8 or 9 years old, but she was totally free in her movements and her joy. There is still hope for my country, and for her!

Only in America can you be a total jerk, and still have at least half the population think you are totally cool and know what you are talking about.

I Wish

I wish I had been a better person 50 years ago; I wish, also, that I had been a better person 30 years ago. It would have been great if I had been a better person 10 years ago, too, and I wish I had been a better person both yesterday and today. Can you help me be a better person tomorrow?

Anyone who says that all you need is luck is a fool. Not only do you need luck, but in this country, you need to know someone!

We can never be a free society for as long as there are those who would deny us our right to vote, our right to our own religion, or to refrain from having any religion whatsoever, our right to be free from the threat of those who chose to carry firearms and threaten all of us, and our families, our right to at least a minimum of healthcare, a decent living, a livable retirement, and educational benefits that will allow all citizens to achieve the best of their intellectual level at the nation's expense and to the country's benefit!

Let's bomb Iran!

According to many in the GOP, we should just bomb Iran and get it over with (you all remember how well that strategy worked in Iraq and Afghanistan - Dick Cheney is out there now, telling us almost every day). Hell, if we are going to solve all of our relationships with other countries in this manner, because it obviously has worked so well in the past, let's also bomb Mexico, Venezuela, and maybe, Cuba, North Korea, and why not go for the big ones, China and Russia,too, among others? Maybe Canada deserves a bomb also, since they have Universal Health Care (and they gave us Ted Cruz)!

Liberalism versus Conservatism

The essence of liberalism is to never think you know more than you do.

The essence of conservatism is to think you know more than you ever will.
