Granted, it’s a different world. But, the continuous, vicious, and insane discourse makes me wonder if we will survive…literally!
Needless to say, I’ve made up MY mind about who to support in 2016. Provided he’s still a candidate. I’m really hoping the latter comes true.
Donald Trump has scored big with millions of Americans who have been looking for someone to give voice to their frustrations over the last decade. Imagine that! A candidate who tells it like it is and says what needs to be said! What a novel idea!
After major Republicans flubs in 2008 and 2012, why shouldn’t they?… How a candidate could lose to the absolute worst president in the history of the United States is beyond me! But, Mitt Romney managed to do so!
Along comes Donald Trump in 2015, seizing upon what he KNOWS Americans feel! No other politician would have the gall to take advantage of that! Of course, Trump isn’t a politician. Considering how BAD this country’s national disgust is with those that have been in charge for far too long, he is the right man at the right time.
As expected, the political class, pundits, and prognosticators are up in arms! There’s no way they’re going to stand by and allow someone who actually LISTENS to the people find his way to the White House. Their frustration lies in the fact that they just can’t seem to grasp the situation. Which is something anyone with common sense can figure out!
I’d like to defer to Rush Limbaugh’s analysis of the Trump saga as it continues to play out since the first Republican debate.. As usual, ‘the godfather’ lays it out in laymen’s terms and makes it crystal clear!….
“There’s a percentage of the population that is totally fed up with the political class, including the media. And they have wanted things said to people and about people for the people they’ve been voting for for years and they haven’t heard it. I mean, the media is not loved. The media in some cases is despised, and Trump is giving it right back to ’em in ways that many people in this country have dreamed of happening. And, as such, he comes off as refreshing….
There is real visceral anger over this amnesty BS. There is real visceral anger over what’s been done for the economy. There is real visceral anger over what is being done to the health care system via Obamacare. The reason they don’t know it is because they do not care to talk to the people who feel that way, so they never do features on them. They never go out and do man-on-the-street interviews with people like that.
Because they are interested in furthering the agenda that has made all of this happen. Now, they know there are gonna be some people that disagree with it, but they immediately relegate them to insignificant status. They’re either bitter clingers or they’re lunkheads or they’re small in number or they’re just old-fashioned ditties that don’t deal well with change or what have you. But they’re missing the real anger, and it’s been building.
The anger, you can see it in the midterm 2010, 2014 elections. There have been people have shown up in droves. The Democrats have lost over a thousand seats in those midterm elections, and part of those elections were Republicans being elected because the people voting for them wanted them to stop all of this, or at least try. And they don’t see any trying to stop it. They don’t see any effort being made, any serious effort to defund Planned Parenthood.
I think there’s some real outrage in this country over what has been learned, was always suspected but now what has been confirmed was going on in those abortion clinics. There’s real anger out there. And the one person that’s come along that’s tapped into it and that gives everybody the impression that he’s fully aware of it and agrees with them is Donald Trump. As such, he’s got a pretty wide berth here. He’s got a pretty big margin of error…”
“Visceral anger!”..That sums it up perfectly! Millions of Americans are simply fed up! And they have been waiting for YEARS to have a candidate that speaks to that! Say what you will about Trump..love him..hate him… He knows what he’s doing and offers the best chance to turn around the disastrous direction in which we’re currently headed. Sadly, most other GOP options can’t come near dynamic enthusiasm Trump projects. And the strongest attraction?..He doesn’t give a DAMN about the media and political elites. And that frightens them! For me, that is a MAJOR advancement in taking control of a nation that seems to be SPIRALING out of control!
Do you ever find it interesting that we have a president who has managed to convey this bewildering sense of “reality”…for lack of a better word…to a distracted, detached populace?…
He can go from feigning ignorance on an issue to flat out lying to the American public on another. It doesn’t matter what the scenario. There’s never any push back. Never any outrage. Never any challenge. He’s managed to convince an ill informed, occupied with the day-to-day, electorate that’s just the way things are. No accountability. No redress. We simply move on to the next contentious point of order!
It’s sad that we’ve devolved to this. We take for granted the life we have in this nation. That it will always go on. It will always be as we know it. If you’re the least bit concerned, you know this not to be the case. We’re a society drowning in debt.. a culture diluted by unchecked immigration..and a nation witnessing unspeakable violence practically daily.
Yet…here is Barack Obama. Given carte blanche to seize a substantial portion of the economy (i.e. Obamacare)…negotiate the security of the United States WITHOUT the approval of Congress…and manipulate whatever government issued statistic he pleases in order to present this utopia to a foolish and blind America. WITH the media’s eager assistance, mind you!
Of course, it goes without saying, if we had a Republican in office encountering the same, he would have been impeached years ago. He wouldn’t have the racial guilt of our society to protect him. He wouldn’t have a slavish media to present his presidency to voters who willingly fall for the imperialistic demeanor.
We face another year and a half of the Obama term. There’s no telling what we will encounter down the road. I shudder to think!
Do you get the feeling that more and more and more of current events are just completely topsy turvy?…
More situations and events across our country make no sense whatsoever!….
From a president who decided appeasing totalitarian regimes is better than having the resolve to confront them…to organizations literally calling for erasing our history by sandblasting memorials and tearing down statues!
It just makes no sense! The national demeanor has sunk to an all time low under Barack Obama. His ‘transformative’ approach has led to disaster at every turn! Nothing is what it seems and practically EVERY obnoxious, unthinkable behavior is excused and tolerated.
I suppose most of it comes from a society too distracted with as many matters as there are individuals, to care. Yet EVERYTHING is unraveling at the seams. There are those who downplay its significance. That it’s just the natural transition of things. I don’t think so! NONE of this “feels” right…it offers no hope of resolve or resolution where we will find a productive, engaged society. All of it is so artificial…so fleeting!
The time has come to realize, we are lost as a nation. There’s no confidence..no sense of direction. Just a people waiting to react to whatever foolishness happens next. No leadership is rampant. Sure…you may find a few individuals willing to rise and take charge of certain matters. But, overall there is NO ONE with the sense of how to empower the nation again. The days of that level of reality are long gone.
Barack Obama has brought nothing but shame to the presidency and tarnished it..perhaps indefinitely. The fact the nation entrusted a man that continues to lie to us with the power to shred our societal fabric is just another indication of how far we’ve fallen. We faced difficulty in the past. But, not from an enemy within. And this loss will see to it that we will never recover…
With today’s supreme court ruling upholding subsidies for Obamacare, it’s just the latest development that leaves you shaking your head in disbelief.
Barack Obama has become the most divisive, partisan, arrogant, and detached president to occupy the Oval office! On issue after issue, he’s played one side against another..or multiple parties against each other. He values nothing more than political expediency. This is all done under the guise of “fairness” and “for the good of the American people.”! When, truth be told, it’s lead to an exhausted and frustrated nation.
Ranging from the fiasco that is the hallmark of Obamacare to the embarrassing state of our foreign affairs, President Obama has managed to shirk responsibility and lay blame at the doorstep of his political opposition. A compliant media has made sure to characterize every situation to where it appears he is continually locked in battle with the dastardly Republicans ( an inept bunch, if any ever existed!)! Yet, nothing changes..nothing improves. Race relations, national debt, unemployment, foreign relations. It’s all a mess. And President Obama has craftily avoided criticism or a relationship to ANY of it!
The nation continues to busy itself with whatever may be. Or immerse itself in the turmoil of the issue du jour! And it plays perfectly with the Obama and Democrat agenda. Characterize the political opposition as the root of all evil, while offering NO concrete solution whatsoever!
It is said that Chief Justice Roberts ruled the way he did on this latest challenge to avoid disrupting the operation of the ACA. Rather than stepping back to take an objective, unbiased look at the detail of the law enacted without a SINGLE Republican vote…a law that few, if any, had the slightest idea of the consequences…he decides to take the coward’s way out. And that is what he is in this regard. A coward. A man who set aside his responsibility for the sake of political expedience.
It’s the nation we’ve become today. More and more Americans are giving up hope of turning things around. Of continuing the tried and true practice of the free markets and the entrepreneur. Leaving only a massive, consuming behemoth in the federal government.
It discourages me to see how and why we’ve surrendered ourselves to the warped whims and shameless arrogance of those who support this sort of control.
Today, we saw just another nail in the coffin of the American spirit.
Call him what you will, but Donald Trump is RIGHT about SO many things!…..
Some excerpts from his speech in announcing his running for president…
“I’m really rich…that’s the kind of thinking you need for this country. It sounds crass, it’s not crass..”
“That’s the kind of thinking our country needs…”… “We have the opposite thinking. We have losers. We have people that don’t have it. We have people that are morally corrupt.”
On Obamacare and the website fiasco: “I hire people, they do a website, it costs $3!
On our losing status in the world:
“I’m not saying they’re stupid, I like China..”… “I just sold an apartment for $15 million to someone from China. Am I supposed to dislike them?”
“Politicians are all talk and no action,”….“We have losers. We have people who are morally corrupt. We have people who are taking the country down the drain.”
“I’m really proud of my success, I really am,”….”I’ve employed tens of thousands of people over my lifetime. That means medical, that means education, that means everything. So a large accounting firm and my accountants have been working for months — because it’s big and complex — and they’ve put together a statement.”
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best..”
“They’re sending people who have lots of problems,… which include “drugs” and “being rapists.”
Just a few of what many consider outrageous remarks…That very well may be..but, for the most part they tell it like it is!!
As I return to publishing observations here, the nation sees itself on the brink of yet another presidential campaign. November 2016 will be here before you know it!…
We have 3 Republicans, Sen. Rand Paul (KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), and Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) up against former Secretary of State and Democrat New York senator, Hillary Clinton.
The themes and memes are already underway in attempts to set the narrative. True to form, the Democrats have trotted out some of their worthless, tasteless voices to express insipid opinions on the Republican field. These quotes are definitely worth retaining as the campaigns move forward…
The effortlessly moronic DNC chair, Debbie Wasserman Schutlz, shares her take… – The Guardian, April 7, 2015
This from a woman who claims her daughter expressed concerned she would be shot following the Rep. Gabby Giffords incident in Arizona…
The walking cadaver and former Senator majority leader from Nevada uttered that description as he recovers from what he expects everyone to believe was an injury from an exercise machine…Right..Harry….right….The former House majority leader, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) comments to Katie Couric on the candidacy of Marco Rubio… As you might recall, Pelosi proudly proclaimed Obamacare had to be passed into law before we could find out what was in it! To this day, she retains the crown as the most lame brain woman in Congress!
Things are just getting underway. That being said, I detect a hint of concern on the part of the Democrats. They’re realizing the lies they’ve told for decades are losing their political value..fast!
