An Open Letter to Donald Trump

Donald, I liked you from the start. You were rich, beyond what most people are, and yet you spent your time giving people a chance. You were the first to ever let a woman design and build a skyscraper in New York. You brought other races to the trading floor on Wall Street before it was cool. When you ran for president, I was overjoyed. I knew who my candidate was going to be I knew where my vote was going. You were brash, you were rude. You didn’t care what people thought. I liked that. It was a good quality to have. It still is. I liked that people got combative about you, especially the spoiled children that comprise a lot of the twentysomething leftists. Best of all, you weren’t Hillary.

I really wanted you to make America great again. They said you made fun of a disabled person on the news. I did my research, I fact checked. You did not, in fact, make fun of a disabled person on the news. You did the same thing that you have done for decades when you mimic someone, including yourself, who has forgotten something or had some sort of a brain fart. This only bolstered my support for you. How can these people be so stupid as to misinterpret that when the proof is right there in front of them? You attacked a gold star family. I tried, but I couldn’t find a reason for it. I actually wanted to excuse your behavior with the rationale that you’re President and I’m not and so you must know best. You were so defensible before, why not now?

Recently, you said that the president of Puerto Rico was a moron, or something to that effect. The statements and ad libs are starting to blur in my mind these days. You had my vote. You had my allegiance. You had someone who would argue on your behalf on every subject, and I knew I was right every time. I also happen to know that I am right this time, when I hang up my hat.

This time I can’t defend you any longer. This time, all I can do is say at least it’s not Hillary. It makes me sad that it’s the only argument left to defend you with. You were something. You were a self-made billionaire. People would always argue, “he just had a small loan of a million dollars”, to try to mock your business ability. I would always retort, asking them if they could make a million if I gave them a thousand.

Most people, given a million dollars or more, are broke in a year’s time. Truthfully, very few people are good with money. Being good with money, however, does not make a person good with everything else. I tried to ignore your “grab them by the pussy” comment, calling it exactly what it was: immature locker room talk. When you admitted to infiltrating the locker rooms of contestants for Miss Teen USA, however, I had no argument to defend you with. There was nothing left.

Donald, you really had something. You could have been a boon to this nation. Instead, you’re just making Carter and Nixon look better, and making your former supporters feel destitute and disenfranchised. I doubt that you will make it a full term. If you do, and you do the remainder perfectly, people will not recognize it. You have sullied the Trump name to badly. If you run in 2020, please know that my vote will go to Dwayne Johnson. Even if he’s not running.

As for the rest of you out there, just because I’m no longer a Trump supporter, doesn’t mean that I would ever in my life be a Hillary supporter. I will also still attend rallies in my city, because I am still desperate to steal an Antifa flag, and to punch actual Nazis.

I am, however, hanging up my MAGA hat here.

Look For The Helpers

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

-Fred Rogers

It’s absolutely true. In the face of adversity, America comes together to help each other.

In the wake of the shooting in Las Vegas last night perpetrated by Stephen Paddock, people were found using their personal vehicles to transport victims to hospitals in Las Vegas. Lines can be seen around the block, of people waiting to donate blood to help the victims of the shooting. They do it unselfishly.

This is the America that I know and love.

God bless you all this day, and God Bless America.

Projecting Your Own Issues.

If you’re smelling something bad everywhere you go, it’s most often coming from you.

There is an expression that I like to use. It says, “if you smell shit wherever you go, maybe you ought to check your own shoe”.

It’s a pretty universal expression, and can be applied to just about everything. That girl you know who’s constantly bitching about her awful boyfriends? It’s not them. It’s her. That guy putting out thousands of job applications, and still can’t get hired anywhere? It’s not them. It’s him. If a person has a nagging problem following them around, the problem is usually with them.

So, let’s get to the meat of this.

In the wake of hurricane Harvey and hurricane Irma, “journalist” Sarah Jaffe, A white girl with far too much make up who looks like she would say something along the lines of what follows, says that arresting looters is racist against black people.

Now, nobody said anything about black people. The cops were simply arresting anybody who was found stealing things during the hurricane. And yet, Sarah Jaffe, paragon of inclusion that she is, comes out and says something not only racist, but completely unnecessary and divisive. That’s like me chaining up my bike, and somebody coming up to me and saying “what are you, afraid of black people?” While I am doing nothing to suggest me being racist, you, an actual racist, decide to virtue signal, using me as a scapegoat.

And it’s not just her.

In the wake of the bombing at Parsons Green yesterday, people immediately come out not decrying the blowing up of innocent people, but instead bitching about how all of the Islamophobes would be coming out of the woodwork. In fact, people saying nothing about Islam, but saying negative things about the as yet unknown bomber, still stirred reactions such as “your Islamophobia is showing”. Donald Trump called the bomber a loser. That’s it. Nothing more. Nothing about Islam. Care to guess what all of the replies were? Yep. People calling Donald Trump an Islamophobe. After he said nothing about Islam.

After the bombing at Manchester arena during an Ariana Grande concert, metro police were actually going around and investigating anyone who put out a mean tweet about Islam, Instead of actually protecting the people. Even after it was proven that yet another terror attack was perpetrated by a member of the Islamic brotherhood, there were people far too publicly showing their disgust with anyone blaming Islam.

Is this an example of people trying to voice their own feelings, while appearing to remain politically correct?

Back when Obama was running for president, I still remember how many white people voted for him just so that they could prove how non-racist they were. Whatever happened to calling on a person’s merits, rather than their race? Nope, gotta vote for him because he’s black.

Well that seems pretty racist. Plus, Herman Cain was better.

Readers, this blog is about personal responsibility. Virtue signaling is about as irresponsible as you can get.

In other news, the Parsons green bomber was arrested a few hours ago. They only describe him as 18 years old. By their omission, the media makes it clear what motives this man had. That’s exactly what virtue signaling does. By trying to hard to look impartial, and thus not describe the man who was arrested, they make it clear exactly what the man was.

Lies and obfuscations should not be tolerated. Virtue signallers still trot out Timothy McVeigh when a bombing happens, and yet managed to take time out of their day on September 11, 2017 to post on their Facebook and Twitter that we really need to get over the attack perpetrated by Islam on September 11, 2001.

America, this is not a time to be divided. Hurricane Harvey showed us that race does not really exist. We are the human race, and have a rainbow of colors within us. Don’t let ideologies and virtue signaling take us down.

America the Beautiful.

In this past week, the United States has, in the face of disaster, shown its true colors. Despite the attempts of various groups to paint them as otherwise, the people of Texas have shown us that America is not racist. 

At this point, anyone trying to follow that narrative needs to simply be ignored. If there words spend enough time falling on deaf ears, maybe they will take the time to open up their hearts to the love that actually exists within this country. 

To all of my American readers, remember what a beautiful country you live in. Don’t let her be changed by the ignorance of a few people.

Emperor Penguin.

Charlie Hebdo, famous french magazine known for its contentious covers, has recently added Texas to its rancorous register. Their bitterness and world-weariness seeps through the humor on every cover they produce; making clear that they are tired of fringe groups of insane people running the asylum. I, for one, fully agree.

Their most recent cover comes on the heels of one of the worst-but most well-managed disasters to hit the United States: Hurricane Harvey. It sounds like a name for a small rodent, a pet that keeps getting loose and up to shenanigans. In reality, however, Harvey has dumped nearly twenty five trillion gallons onto Texas.

That’s 25,000,000,000,000.

Horseshoe Falls, the biggest waterfall in Niagara falls, would have to constantly dump onto Texas for nine months to equal twenty five trillion gallons, according to an article from the New York Times.

So, Charlie says all the Nazis have been drowned.

I agree.

With all of the focus by the media on race relations in our country over the past few years, with all of the furor(fuhrer?) over the Nazis in Charlottesville, one would think that this country does not allow for mixing or interaction between races at all. It has truly become exaggerated to that point, not helped by BLM, who has actually segregated blacks and whites on some college campuses.

How infuriated they must be at not being able to paint such a picture in Texas, where race has all but been erased in the face of humanity. Men and women of all race and religion have come together to form one group dedicated to helping everyone affected.

When the flood waters have receded, and people return to their ruined homes to begin the process of rebuilding their lives, I hope they remember the spirit they felt during the disaster, when one man was the same as another, when everyone was simply American.

Alien invasion isn’t the only chance for unity.
