Why A Country’s Leader Needs to Be An Honorable Man

Every day, those who are the backbone of this country lay their lives on the line, their intention to protect the homeland. Every death is a loss to us all. Those women and men who make that ultimate sacrifice should have done so for the right reasons.

To be led by an idiot who makes decisions based on his bowel movements and a news channel is a disgrace to the sacrifice those men make and brings shame on all of us.

Those who continue to allow this idiocy are as responsible as he is, mores because they continue to let him act out his childish, self-serving, narcissistic whims with no regard for those who are hurt by him. They seek their own selfish agenda and forget that their paths are paved with the blood of the Real Americans.

They are responsible for each and every life wasted for an idiot’s agenda.

Do You See a Pattern Here?

Question: What countries are labeled “shithole” countries?


In an Oval Office meeting on immigration with Sens. Dick Durbin and Lindsay Graham on Thursday, President Trump argued against restoring protections for people who arrived in the U.S. from El Salvador, Haiti, and African countries, the Washington Post's Josh Dawsey reports:


”Why are we having all these people from shithole countries coming here?"

Question: What countries are included in the immigration “ban”?


In January the new US President imposed a controversial 90-day ban on travellers from seven countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

But after the ban was lifted by the courts, Mr Trump issued a new ban that removed Iraq from the list of countries affected by the travel ban.

Federal judges blocked the new ban in March. But the Supreme Court has now revived parts of the ban, allowing it to go into effect for travellers with no strong ties to the US.

Donald Trump tweeted: “Great day for America's future Security and Safety, courtesy of the US. Supreme Court. I will keep fighting for the American people, & WIN!”

Question: Who was supported in the Charlottesville riot?


Abandoning his precisely chosen and carefully delivered condemnations of the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis from a day earlier, the president furiously stuck by his initial reaction to the unrest in Charlottesville. He drew the very moral equivalency for which a bipartisan chorus, and his own advisers, had already criticized him.

“I think there is blame on both sides,” the president said in a combative exchange with reporters at Trump Tower in Manhattan. “You had a group on one side that was bad. You had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say that. I’ll say it right now.”

Mr. Trump defended those gathered in a Charlottesville park to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. “I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups,” he said. “Not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch.”

Note: I was there 15 minutes before the protest and it was interesting to me to see armed civilians in fatigues going to a “peaceful” protest. Really?!

Question: Who admits to “grabbing them by the pussy”?


The Washington Post has obtained an extremely crass recording, above, on which Donald Trump converses with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush about women aboard a bus on the set of Days of Our Lives. Among the things Trump says:

• "I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn't get there, and she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she's now got the big phony tits and everything." (It's not clear who Trump was talking about.)

• "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful women—I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."

Question: On Which Border Does Trump Want a Wall? Hint: Not Canada!


Donald Trump kicked off his campaign on June 16, 2015 with a speech in which he labeled immigrants from Mexico "rapists" and criminals. "When Mexico sends it people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people," he said.

Conclusion: In TrumpWorld, If You Aren't White and Male, You’re Screwed

This is just a sampling of validated incidents and comments showing that Donald Trump is a sexist, racist old white man.

Who Am I: white, male, a military veteran, and ashamed of this buffoon.

Structural Insanity

The world is structured to produce insanity. Everything we see around us, both good and bad, work to move us closer to the edge of reason. It seems as if things shift much in the same way that a pendulum swings, that we go from one extreme to the other but always reach the point of equilibrium albeit for a relatively short period of time. However, it may be a continuum rather than a pendulum as many of the factors that would allow a pendulum motion may not be present. For example, economically, we go from rags to riches and back again, since money is a renewable resource; if there is something to be sold, there will be someone to buy it and over time, wealth can be accumulated and lost, then replenished with effort. The problems begin when other aspects of a pendulum system are considered. Resources can be bought and sold only if they are available; renewable resources may not renew fast enough to keep up with the demand and the destruction of natural resources through overuse and pollution may be a limiting factor. Or it could just be that the pendulum arc is so large, it may take many generations to complete.

In any case, things are changing and more rapidly than ever before. Things that were once desirable have become necessary and with that shift has come a greater demand for “thneeds,” those things that the Once-lers in The Lorax described as something that everyone needs. The problem is that the need may be starting to exceed the availability; the cycle is breaking down. As it worsens, the result will be felt by the “canaries in the mines,” those who are already living with minimum access to resources because of the economic and social delimiters of an unequal system. The last to be impacted will be those in the top 1% who have always been seeking other systems to exploit when the inevitable misuse of one system causes its demise. The problem is that in the case of physical needs such as clean air, water, and food, there may not be a way to compensate for this loss, even for the elites. As has been said many times before, we all are in the same boat—planet—and if one goes, we all go. Who knows what that 1% is planning as we only see a tiny inkling of what is planned. An off-world move is not out of the question.
