Donald Trump: You will be #unpresidented.

Un-pres'-i-dent' v. (Colloq.) to impeach a traitorous President who was elected to office through the help of a foreign government. Example: Donald Trump, we intend with every ounce of our being to unpresident you.

Freedom Is Never Free

If we do not stand up to bullies now, then we will never be truly free.

The Russians are Coming

2016 will go down in history as the year when the GOP chose treason over patriotism.

Just Remember

If you think Russia's influence over the U.S. election ended on November 8th, just remember who Donald Trump has nominated for his cabinet so far.

Just Think of Your Loved Ones, and What They Would Want You To Do!

You can vote for Hillary Clinton, in spite of any possible reservations you might have, or you can vote for Donald Trump, a third party candidate, or not vote at all.

In your heart you know what you need to do, and if you don't listen to that message coming from within, then you will have to live with your decision for the rest of your life, and so will we.

Just think of your loved ones, and what they would want you to do.

If we cannot even relate to our next door neighbour, how are we going to relate to another culture (unless we try)?

The Best of all Religions

The best of all religions is that which doesn't worry about another's religion.

Donald Trump is no genius.

In my lifetime, I have been privileged to know a genius or two, and let me tell you, Donald Trump is no genius.

You Just Might Be a Fool

You may distrust Hillary Clinton; you may not even like her.

You are probably the same person who has hated President Obama, called him a Kenyan Muslim, made fun of Michelle Obama and their children, and fought every effort he has tried to make over the past eight years to advance our country and rectify the problems created by the Bush administration and the Republicans, who have destroyed our economy and involved us in endless wars in the Mid-east.

If you think Donald Trump even comes close to Hillary Clinton in his ability to run our country, then you are a fool.

Trump's health still needs to be questioned!

Donald Trump says that he feels as good today as he did at the age of thirty.

May I remind you that by that age Donald Trump had an unending series of draft deferments to avoid serving in the Vietnam war due to severe medical conditions?

How can he possibly win?

Let's see, Donald Trump has 0% of the African American vote, and I would suspect, the Muslim vote, 20% of the Latino vote (one has to wonder what that 20% is thinking), a minority of the Asian vote, the Catholic vote, the gay vote, the immigrant vote, the college graduate vote and the female vote, so one has to wonder where Trump gets the idea that he has a chance of winning?

To be fair, he does have 100% of the KKK, American Nazi and Alt-Right votes.

The Disintegration of the Mental Stability of Donald Trump

We are slowly watching the total disintegration of Donald Trump's sanity, played out in full view before millions of people on TV. I only hope he completely collapses into madness and disarray before our November presidential election.

Some would say that he is already 90% there.

A Trump Presidency

I don't know if a Clinton presidency would be good, bad, or simply unremarkable, but I do know that a Trump presidency would be catastrophic.

Let's All Come Together

Governments worldwide need to realize that extremism has nothing to do with any religion, and everything to do with hate and bigotry from small minded and ignorant people.

The solution cannot be through more hate and bigotry against those who are different from us, but only from all of us, all countries, all religions, and all ethnicities, coming together to work as one to eliminate the common enemy of evil and hate.

One Simple Observation

One simple observation: You may not like Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate, and, in fact, you may actually hate her. But if you thought that Bernie was going to save our country, but now that he is out, Trump would do a better job, you are out of your fricken mind.

There is nothing in common between Bernie and Donald.

A Frightening Trend

There is a frightening trend among Bernie followers to declare that they won't vote at all in November, or if they do, they will vote for Donald Trump instead.

Can't Bernie Sanders followers realize that Donald Trump is the exact opposite of everything that Bernie Sanders believes in? If they follow through doing what they say, they will personally be responsible for destroying the country.

Donald Trump says veterans are thieves. Donald Trump says Mexicans are rapists and murderers. Donald Trump says that Muslims should not be allowed in our country. Donald Trump says that China is destroying our economy. Donald Trump says that women are best when they are on their knees, kneeling before you. Donald Trump says he would make a great President.

Donald Trump is an idiot!

Do not vote for Donald Trump!

Golden Gate Sunset

Unless we learn to care for one another, we will not survive as a people.

If my politics are different than yours, if my religious beliefs are different than yours, if my ethnicity and race are different than yours, that does not mean that I don't feel hurt and despair just as you do. Let us all begin to accept that we are all born in this same world, and are dependent on one another to make it in life together here, supporting one another as much as we can. If we can't learn to do at least that, we are doomed as a species.

Cannery Row Morning

Hillary Clinton may be the worst President ever.

Face one basic fact: Hillary Clinton may be the second worst President ever, which I doubt, but Donald Trump would definitely be the very worst of all time, ever. So, you are not going to vote for Hillary because you are upset that Bernie Sanders is losing? Do every sane person a favor, hold your nose if you must, and vote, vote Democratic.

Look, I am not a Democrat, but I refuse to allow xenophobic, racist, bigoted, bloviating assholes to take over my country.

Hillary, not necesssarily the best.

Admittedly, Hillary Clinton may not turn out to be the best President our country has ever had, but it is guaranteed that Donald Trump would turn out to the worst, even beating out George W. Bush and Richard Nixon.

Religion and Belief

I have no problem with anyone believing in their own religion. After all, that is what religion is all about, a system of belief. The problem arises, however, whenever anyone believes that their own religion, or their own interpretation of it, is the only one that matters, and everyone else's beliefs are wrong.

Please, everyone, believe whatever you wish, and allow me to do the same.

Capitalism or Socialism?

Capitalism or Socialism, is that what we are really facing in the November election? No, of course not. What, then, are we up against as a country?

We will be asked to vote in favor of the status quo, or to vote for someone interested in taking our country back to the 1930's and 40's.

The choice is yours! Or, you can not vote at all, and leave the choice to me.

Is this what America has come to?

Donald Trump is living proof that you can have money (supposedly), an expensive education, and still be a classless imbecile.

Saturday, April 23, 2016


One thing the 2016 presidential race has shown is just how broken the political system in the United States has become. Somehow, we MUST eliminate the corporate financing of our political process, and we MUST begin to finance the electoral process publicly.

Yes, rich people, that would mean that you could no longer hide your political contributions by funnelling them through Super PACs, but you, as well as everyone else, would openly contribute to ALL qualified candidates through your taxes!

The End of Democracy

Democracy ceases to function properly when one of the components of that government refuses to do its job.

Monday, February 29, 2016


When voting for a candidate for the presidency of the United States, of whichever political party, I want to know his or her plans for improving the American economy, increasing employment, improving public education, repairing our infrastructure, improving healthcare and making it more affordable, expanding Social Security, and additionally, I want to know his or her intentions on involving the United States in future military adventures throughout the world and what they will do to solve foreign conflicts that we, as a country, are presently involved in. And I would like to hear details, not just that it will be great or huge!

I am NOT interested in the candidate’s income, except as to how it would bear on their presidency, nor am I interested in whether they have an artificial tan or not, nor am I interested in the size of their fingers or genitalia.

I DO want to know about any affiliations he or she has, though, with any group or person who possibly could or would influence their decisions while in office.

In other words: We all deserve much better than what we have heard from any candidate of either political party so far.
