For Fear That We May Forget…#243

I am not trying to sway your vote; it is your right to chose whomever you believe is the best person for the job.  Donald Trump is not a politician, he is a business man, and what he does as an American citizen is his right, but you cannot run a country like a business.  Joe Biden is a politician, he has been Vice President under President Obama for that alone should be the reason he wins. 

A businessman is a person undertaking activities for the purpose of generating cash flow, utilizing a combination of human, financial, intellectual and physical for economic development and growth.   Trump does not own America, the United States Federal Reserve is not his personal cash flow, he cannot sale it off, and I will give him credit for a few things, but they do not offset what he is doing now.  To support white supremacist, aka, the Proud Boys, to tell his followers to “Stand down and stand by”, is not presidential.  Trump knows how to bankrupt businesses, spend the money of his backers, to live like a “King”, but not in my White House.  The era of Camelot left when the Kennedy’s, Camelot represents truth and goodness, none of which Trump can claim.

Joe Biden is a politician, and has been most of his adult life. A politician, a person experienced in the art or science of government, actively engaged in conducting the business of a government. Biden has his faults, personally and politically, he might not have been my choice, however, he is the only choice as president. 

I am fearful that Trump may go mad; he has clearly stated that he will not leave the WH peacefully.  If nothing else, I actually want to see how he can handle it.  Biden will fill the office with experience, and style.  Let’s face it folks…there has to be a certain measure of transparency, but I don’t believe in telling John Q Public everything.

But, getting back to Trump, I do not have enough time and space to comment on all that he does, but one area is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention drafted a sweeping order last month requiring all passengers and employees to wear masks on all forms of public and commercial transportation in the United States, but it was blocked by the White House, according to two federal health officials. The White House Corona virus Task Force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, declined to even discuss the Virus. 

Many feel that the Trump administration has turned the wearing — or not wearing — of masks into a political expression, as seen most dramatically on Monday evening when President Trump whipped off his surgical mask at the White House door after returning from the hospital where he was treated for Covid-19.

 “It’s especially outrageous because the science is so clear: masks save lives.”

Now, I hear that Trump, had a “Medical Evaluation” By Fox News’ Dr. Marc Siegel, Says Trump is “Medication Free”.  He went through a reality TV-like “medical evaluation” with Dr. Marc Siegel on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, and claimed that he was medication free and that he was recently retested for COVID-19.  This is not a reality show Mr. Trump!

Trump also said that he will donate his plasma, used to help other COVID-19 patients, “if they want me to do it.”  What I want to know is why he took a medication where they use “aborted” fetuses, when he has clearly stated he did not believe in abortion.  There are so many arguments about abortion, if it is overturned, my fear is that women will return to the kitchen table and knitting needles use in the 1950’s.

Trump refused to debate virtual, well of course he want, he cannot intimidate anyone.  I do have an issue with him using the White House for his campaigning.  The White House is the “people’s” house, it is bad enough that he sits in the White House and degrades women, people with disabilities and such, but I say “Not in my house”. 

This brings me to Trump’s “friend”, Kim Jong Un who rolled out a new ballistic missile at a rare midnight parade Saturday, experts say the new ICBM appears to be the largest road-mobile rocket of its type.  The stakes are high: US weapons experts believe North Korean missiles can strike anywhere in the US. A North Korean nuclear missile would take about 40 minutes to reach New York City once launched. However, very little is publicly known about the capabilities of North Korea’s missile technologies. Trump wanted to befriend Kim because North Korea has pristine white beach front property. Trump wanted to make a deal not as President but as a business man wanting to build hotels.

Trump is “friends” with Putin, and the Federation of American Scientists estimates that Russia possesses 6,800 nuclear weapons. China, whom Trump has “pissed off”, has 280 nuclear warheads.  Trump is like a “pit-bull”, he bites into something and will not turn loose.  If he gets four more years will he get America in a war? 

I watched his WH speech today, he is back peddling now, praising law enforcement, blacks and Latino’s, and does he think we have forgotten about “the wall”.  People just have a discussion about the bad that he has done and what he has said, do you want a president that pull children out of parents arms and lock them up in cages.  When talking about the protest, looting and burning, he said, “Well there are good people on both sides. Really!

Trump needs to be arrested and locked away, he is not solely responsible for the Virus in America but being silent when he knew it was being brought in, is criminal.  He, in my book is responsible for the deaths and is no better than Hitler.

Trump argued Saturday, that it is important for Black Americans to support law enforcement. Is he blind, how can they support law enforcement when their own race is being killed and decimated against?  I support law enforcement, there are good and bad apples in every basket, but do not ask these people who have had to live like second rate citizens since their ancestors were brought over in slave ships, to support individual that murder them.  

I am from a poor southern family, yet although we may have been dirt poor sharecroppers we could go in the front door of Bob Gibson’s BBQ, while my black friends had to go to the back door, yes not all southerners are prejudice.  We were still white, but given more respect than the Black’s.

A friend of mine Bob F. from Madison, Wisconsin, Black, he told me that he wanted to take his family from Wisconsin to Mississippi to visit relatives, but they had to drive straight threw, eat in the car, use black facilities.  In those days Black’s were not allow to stay in motels in the south and he drove for two days to get there as they were afraid to pull into waysides to sleep. In the 50’s it would be dangerous. 

As my children say, I may have been poor but my “whiteness” gave me privilege!  Folks, we are Americans, a land of immigrants, it is time to take back America. It is going to take all of us voting to really “Make it Great” again.

  1. At this point , ANYONE who defends and supports and will vote for the tRump. is beyond my pale. Such a person has conspired with corruption and incompetence the like we have never seen. To support tRump is to support fascism. End of rant.

  2. I am amazed that Trump could even get one vote in November, and so I say to my fellow Americans, please search your souls before you vote. Consider the country you want to have for our children, grandchildren and their children. We cannot take our freedoms for granted – democracy has been under assault for the past 4 years. Do we really want a dictator with unchecked powers? Seriously?
    Thanks for the post. Remember in November.

  3. Well said as always. And really: if you want a business person to run the country, at least pick a SUCCESSFUL one. Who hasn’t filed half a dozen bankruptcies, lost civil rights litigation, and bankrupted casinos in Atlantic City and Puerto Rico, just for starters. Honesty might be a good quality too. A heart would be good as well. I also am not crazy about Biden but he is a better choice on every level, in my opinion. At least he has some clues about what to do and how to do it, and isn’t doing this for the applause track given to Dictators. Government is a SERVICE to the PEOPLE. Not a cash cow to be drained by the few. (sorry for the rant…..)
