I Miss America

I miss America, Land that I loved,
Stood beside her, and held herAmerican Flag
Through the night with a light from above.

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
I miss America, My home sweet home
I miss America, My home sweet home

​Polling at 6% alongside Stein at 2%, I wonder if my @govgaryjohnson supporting friends really want history to view them as the people that elected Trump? Wouldn’t you rather be seen as the 6% that saved the world from fascism.

Intelligent Americans,  know that compromise is what makes us great. We got here by taking 3 steps forward, one step back. Not by taking 3 steps back. We all suck it up for the greater good as we push this ungainly democracy forward. Yeah, democracy and freedom take work because freedom isn’t free.

Don’t give me the “voting my conscience” stuff. We saw what that can do in 2000 to give us W. My personal beliefs have always been to the left of Bernie, yet I understand that I share this land with 300 million others who may be as strong in their opposite beliefs as I am in mine. 

If you truly have a conscience, use it Tuesday to show the world that the United States of America is indeed the conscience of the free world. 

The covenant of America, the smooth transition of power rests on the mutual respect of the fact that all people are created equal and are given an equal fighting chance to leave the world a better place for their grandchildren. 

Stand with us. Stand with her for civility. Stand for America. Stand for all people’s in the constant struggle to just have a pleasant life.

It’s 2020 and Press Debate What Happened To Their Freedom

One day in the not too distant future….

Four “journalists” sipping Trump Bourbon in the piano bar inside the Smithsonian’s President Donald J. Trump Institute of Tweets(known as The TiT). The TiT is the largest museum on the mall, having displaced the old Washington Monument, which as you know fell during the super quake of 2018. an aside… many scientists on the illegal underground GreenNet feel certain that frakking under The Whitehouse caused the quake… but I digress

The “journalists”, all white males, were debating the end of press freedoms with the Make America Great Again(MAGA) laws of April 1, 2017. (the MAGA were based on the Ukrainian Anit-Protest laws https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-protest_laws_in_Ukraine).

Press Drink

Drowning their regrets for helping Trump

It is a common debate amongst academics, historians and other’s who somehow manage to avoid the thought police, even in public places. I’m told that they speak in an language similar to pig latin but actually derived from emojis. Journalist one says, “(ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง ” and two replies “﴾͡๏̯͡๏﴿ O’RLY?” while three holds his tongue :-X and four expresses some confusion o_O or O_o …. (゚Д゚)

Colon dash left parenthesis

The debate translated:

Some scholars think that “impartial” “journalists” reporting on the last election of 2016 gave the candidates equal respect, thus assisting President Trump to his great ascension to the throne.

Exiled researchers at the University of Nova Scotia attribute the Trump landslide and the end of freedom to a masterful marketing professional who went by the name of The Donald. The Donald, or His Highness, laid down a subconscious marketing strategy for nearly two decades which caused the entire press corps, even liberal leaning ones, to unknowingly support his efforts to achieve his takeover of The United States. They also have evidence that the Democratic party’s nomination of a powerfully speaking woman was instigated by The Donald and his partner Karl Rove. These expatriate researchers refer us to the papers of Sigmund Freud and the natural, male distrust of the mother figure. Two unfailing, brilliant strategies came together as a tidal wave of support for His Highness, Donald J. Trump.

But the consensus of a small but loud segment of journalism academia argues rather strongly that one Hillary D. R. Clinton is solely to blame. She, they argue, insisted on speaking about the boring issues and needs of regular people who it turns out only want to be rich and pay no taxes. She completely misread the American electorate of 2016, thinking that they actually cared about their neighbors, family and distant relatives.

I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat

Will Rogers 1922

Will Rogers 1922

Fellow Democrats please remember that Will Rogers was right then and still right today. “I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat.”

If we all fell in step and eagerly got behind the party leadership at the snap of a finger, we’d be Republicans. If we didn’t argue incessantly, we’d be Republicans. If we didn’t think for ourselves, we’d be Republicans

Together At Last

Stronger Together

Together at Last

Today’s “Stronger Together” rally in Portsmouth, NH was so much more than I ever expected. Thank you Bernie. Thank you Team Hillary and Thank you Hillary Clinton. The hashtag of the day should be #HesWithHer

The first unexpected occurrence, well after the 2 hours of planned waiting outside, was that the event actually started on time. That’s unheard of! Doors opened at 9am the event started at 11 and I was on the road by 12:45. A well run event by the NH Hillary team under Mike Vlacich’s leadership.

Also unexpected was the new layout of the venue and specifically the absence of bored faces behind the candidate. There were peeps standing on platforms to the sides, but not directly behind. Best move ever.

Bernie’s endorsement went way beyond anything I or my seat neighbors expected. With Hillary standing by his side, he went on and on, up and down the last 14 months. he took us on a thrill ride of highs and highers, then he let loose on tRump. I won’t repeat all the comparisons he made but dang if he didn’t nail tRump to the past.  And he closed with the incredible future we can have with Hillary and the Progressive agenda. Thank you Senator Sanders.

Hillary. What can I say? She was amazing today. She laid out in clear terms how she is so unlike tRump and that the choice American’s face is one of a promising future or a return to the failed policies of the past. Go Go Hillary!Unity

ps: the wise press will inform the public that Hillary once again screamed, Bernie wiped the sweat off his brow a few times and there were a few unconvinced Bernie supporters trying to make a fuss. They of course, won’t interview those folks to see if perhaps they are tRump staff in camo.

Sadly, It’s The Guns Stupid

Dallas is a truly low point in our countries sadness due to gun violence. Today, we all weep for the dead, for the families, for the communities which will never be the same.

The image below is of, yeah I know, cops from the 60’s and a suburban cop of today watching a fallen tree being cleared away after a wind storm. On the left is the classic police tunic, covering their “tools of the trade”. On the right we have the militarized cop of today, a heck of a nice guy by the way. He wears a kevlar vest and his weapons are exposed. We have gone down the rabbit hole of escalating violence that Dr. King put into perspective, before he himself was gunned down.

1960's cops and Today

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral,
begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.
Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.
Through violence you may murder the liar,
but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.
Through violence you may murder the hater,
but you do not murder hate.
In fact, violence merely increases hate.
So it goes.
Returning violence for violence multiplies violence,
adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Stiletto knifeThe escalation of the American gun culture, brought on by the NRA, has brought us from a time when cops worried about gangs with illegal stiletto knives to our time when every American is encouraged to go and buy an assault weapon. Today once again, gun sales will be huge and the evil bosses of the NRA will be gleefully counting their donations from the gun manufacturers.

That Stiletto in the pic is the thing cops of the sixties feared. It is the weapon of West Side Story fame.

Today’s American cops live every day in every town with the knowledge that each and every one of us may be carrying a lethal gun. And as we’ve gone down this 40 year old rabbit hole, cops have needed to protect themselves and bring on the militarization of our police forces.

All, not because we are more violent today. Black kids and white kids both were just as violent in the sixties. The difference is that back then we fought with fists and at worst, knives. The only ones anyone knew with a rifle were hunters and those long guns were not meant for secreting into a city with the goal of sniping.

It is truly guns and the gun culture that has brought us to this point. Guns serve only one purpose, Killing. The NRA serves only one master, the manufacturers. We have to stop it and all say Enough is Enough. #KilledByTheNRA #GunsKill #StopTheInsanity #Dallas #BlackLiveMatter

No charges, Nada, Zilch

At a press conference in Washington, FBI director James Comey announced the end of the year-long investigation into whether Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state warranted prosecution under laws designed to protect classified government data.

Though highly critical of the “extremely careless” way in which emails were handled, Comey said the FBI would not be recommending that prosecutors seek charges in the case.

“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes … our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” said Comey.
