WHO THINKS THEY WON THE DEBATE; FACE IT, NO ONE IS “RIGHT”!

September 28th, 2016

Today I read: “Fact Checking the First Debate”: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/factchecking-the-first-debate/ar-BBwGgwX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp which I thought was very good but did not settle any arguments for me about truth in terms of the debate. Truth is what the individual person perceives as true; it always has been throughout history.

hillary-trump-debate-handshake

Realist Scientist believe what they think is truth because they deal with numbers but are often required to change their mind when new scientific thinking proves earlier science wrong, Idealist think they know the only truth because they deal in God, and pragmatist believe truth is only for the moment, and what science has found true for the present and it is not necessarily truth today or the future. They all argue, no one wins, and a President is elected in spite of all of it all.

My advice to voters is do your own interpretation of truth but keep your ears and eyes open.

Actually, truth itself is in the eye of the beholder (truth is based on the individual’s philosophical frame of reference, and differs from one to another); there is no such thing as absolute truth. So, truth of “fact checkers” depends on the individual fact checker and how he determines “truth”.

The entire debate is over what individuals (Trump and Clinton) decide what they think is true; basically that is why we have Republicans and Democrats.

The difference in 2016 is that the difference is Republicans, Democrats, and liberal progressives who were eliminated from the Presidential contest because of a corrupted Democratic Hillary, the DNC, and Democratic DC Establishment. So candidates today are more alike than different.

The 2016 Presidential race will proceed without Liberal Progressive participation, because of the corrupted Democratic Party leadership. Hillary and Trump are more alike than different; liberal progressives will not be participating.

Meanwhile, all voters think they are “right”!

THE FIRST U.S. PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION DEBATE OF 2016, WHO WON?

September 27th, 2016

So, today was the first Presidential debate of 2016; I really didn’t want to watch it but I had to because I wanted to write this review. And why, you ask?

Well, personally, I do not believe that either candidate is suitable to be my President, and I want to express my reasons why?

hillary-and-trump-good-image

Therefore, I will say right off the top, the winner of the debate was the moderator who picked the topics; and the moderator was of the American prime time news media who are all biased and opinionated.

And I have to say that I believe the prime time news media to be totally opinionated and not in the least actually very understanding of issues and what is most important to voters; and after the debates were over and the news commentators expressed their opinion, they reacted just as I would have them expect to react.

My own opinion was that Donald Trump was much better than I expected, and Hillary was spared embarrassment where she was most vulnerable, so my evaluation was that the winner of the debate, was the moderator who chose the issues for debate.

Therefore, it was my opinion that the debate did not change anyone’s mind; we will see what the polls report later. The debate proved nothing!

In the aftermath, I watched MSNBC, which was previously more Democratic liberal oriented, but not anymore, since NBC was bought out by Comcast and got rid of Keith Olbermann and Ed Schultz; now MSNBC is more conservative, even though in a Democratic sense. MSNBC obviously supports Hillary Clinton.

I also watched Fox News, which is to the right of Otilla the Hun! Fox News, of course, supports Donald Trump.

Also, I watched CNN, who tries to not favor either candidate. In reality, all news sources are owned, operated, and edited (censored) and favored Republican candidates but in the case of 2016, appear to support Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, because she is the candidate they currently monetarily support, because Hillary is basically a Republican Lite Candidate who favors corporate America’s benefit.

That said, I found the debate interesting. The first issue was American jobs lost because of Trade Agreements, which wealth and corporations approve, because they moved their companies to foreign countries with cheap labor and don’t pay American income tax.

And the worse (best) example is the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) which caused many, many American companies (and jobs) to move to Mexico to produce goods then sent products and services, without tariff, to American customers. NAFTA was signed into law by President Bill Clinton, who happens to be Hillary’s husband.

Trump opposes NAFTA unlike most Republicans, and made points with American workers and Labor; this is unprecedented since most Republican candidates would be for NAFTA and Democratic candidates would oppose NAFTA for the sake of Labor.

My opinion is that Trump won working Americans on NAFTA and they don’t care about the rest of the debate.

Hillary won on the issue of Women’s Rights; it is difficult for Trump to win on woman’s Rights because he is totally crude in his experiences with women and feminine issues.

Of course, I am a feminist, but in this case I could only hope that Hillary would have worn a dress, instead of pants, and would have appeared to have more feminine appeal; I see nothing wrong with feminine appeal, personally, and think Hillary is actually an attractive female would win more male votes by dressing, “talking”, and “behaving more feminine”, like Sen. Liz Warren.

Trump is at a disadvantage when it comes to women’s place in the world.

As for me and I think like many other men, feminism is not a real Presidential issue because gender is simply not a good issue to use for approving a Presidential candidate. In reality, my feeling is that if Sen. Liz Warren was running for President, she would win hands down on political issues, to “any Republican male candidate”. Hillary may have a problem in November.

Then the candidates were required to debate the “birther issue”; personally, I do not even consider it an issue in 2016, and believe it was wrong (stupid) to make it an issue. This is an issue Hillary had trouble dealing with, because in 2008, Hillary ran a very bitter, even dirty campaign against President Obama; she lost the primary to Obama, and now Hillary is making the most of Obama’s endorsement of her.

Instead of making Hillary’s bitter campaign against Obama an issue, Trump stupidly tried to say Hillary started the birther issue, and Hillary denied it. Who really cares? Hillary accused Obama of much worse in 2008, but Trump just wasn’t prepared to challenge Hillary on other issues.

So, Trump got sucked in and did not take advantage of Hillary’s campaign against Obama, and got sucked into the “birther” issue instead. Actually, most working voters could care less about the birther issue. In fact, most voters are concerned only about their jobs and/or employment.

Finally, I thought the moderator won the debate. In finality, I disagreed with all the news commentators and politicians. Who is right? America will find out when the votes are counted. My concept is the voters will lose the election; the winners will be corporate America who finances both candidates.

As for Fact-checking the first Trump, Clinton presidential debate, I simply wonder what fact checkers consider truth; truth depends on the fact finders philosophical concept of truth and that is debatable.

THE TRULY AMERICAN, UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA, OF CHRISTIAN RACISTS POLICE SHOOTING AND KILLING MINORITY CITIZENS

September 25th, 2016

For too long, I have been reading about police shooting primarily unarmed Black male victims.

Sadly, the issue degenerates into individual Americans’ assessment of the “quality” of police in general or “what the hell is going on in the minds of individual policemen and why”.

police-brutality-choke-hold

This is my feelings on the issue and I believe my concept is valid in America today; though admittedly I, and my thoughts on the issue are not considered reasonable by most Americans, for some odd reason.

Personally, I respect police, because I sure as hell would not want the job. However, CONSIDER “ALL OF THOSE OTHERS”, WHO ACTUALLY DO WANT TO BE A POLICEMAN AND SUCCEED IN BECOMING A POLICEMAN?

Also consider the fact that American police are perceived as “authoritarian”, in America, like parents, and teachers, and their job is perceived as a job where police are considered to be an authoritarian employee of the People, who is allowed to carry a gun, and make a decision on whether or not a citizen lives or is shot and dies. And furthermore, that employee (police officer) decides “when” a citizen should be or is going to be killed by the police.

Very seriously consider what kind of an American would even WANT TO BE A POLICEMAN, CARRY A GUN, and MAKE DECISIONS OF WHETHER OR NOT A CITIZEN LIVES OR DIES.

And think carefully, about how candidates for being authoritarian policeman are chosen in America, and WHAT KIND OF POLITICIAN MAKES THE CHOICE OF WHO WILL BE AN AMERICAN POLICE OFFICER. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR APPLICANTS WHO WANT TO BE A POLICE OFFIFCER, COULD EVEN POSSIBLY BE OF DECIDEDLY QUESTIONABLE CHARACTER, AND BE PERMITTED TO ACTUALLY DECIDE WHO SHOULD LIVE AND WHO SHOULD DIE, IN AMERICA?

If you consider who would ever, ever want to be as policeman, consider that an American who is obsessed with guns, and an American who hates minority segments of American population (such as White Supremacists, or Christians who hate Muslims), would certainly be one of those who hate minorities, love guns, and who would thoroughly desire the privilege of shooting minorities they hate, if given the opportunity and provided the privilege of carrying a gun, and deciding whether or not a citizen should be killed.

Do not try to tell me that such human beings do not exist in America, they do. I know some; I’m related to some. Some of these hateful White Christian Supremacists are Members of Congress and some have been candidates for the Presidency of the United States of America.

police-brutality-black-guy-dogs

And so, if you question this as a potential reason for America’s “police problem”, ask yourself if and how candidates for entering the police force are vetted for being White Supremacists, KKK, or American Nazis Party members.

It is important for Americans to know and realize, that in 1954, President Eisenhower signed into law, a law that made the Communist Party illegal in America; but it was alright for Americans to be a member of the KKK, the American Nazi Party, or be a White Supremacist. (“Communist Control Act of 1954”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Control_Act_of_1954)

Consider also that in order for me to get a license to teach school in California in 1954, I was required to sign a legal affidavit that I was not now, nor had I ever have been, a Communist or member of any Communist front group; however, I could legally be a teacher and a member of the KKK, the American Nazi Party, or a White Supremacist. (Please reread this last sentence carefully; it is important.)

The American Constitution has been amended many times since the U.S. Civil War; and according to the Constitution today, “White Supremacy” is unconstitutional; however unfortunately, “White Supremacy” has not be made illegal by statute.

I personally suggest, that one prospective solution to police killing unarmed minorities and other problems of racial, religious, and other discrimination is, and it is time now, to make “White Supremacy” illegal and punishable by deportation to Gitmo!

It is time to rid America of “White Supremacy”, once and for all! White Supremacy and discrimination has no place in the American democratic Republic. It is worse than Communism!

WOMEN’S RIGHTS, GENDER EQUALITY, JUSTICE, AND “WHO THREW THE OVERALLS IN MRS. MURPHY’S CHOWDER”!

September 17th, 2016

Today I am reading news about Hillary possibly becoming America’s First Female President, gender equality, and democratic Rights for women in a democracy.

HILLARY PRESIDENTIAL 1

Actually, I was inspired to write this by a response to statement supporting gender equality; “Someday soon, I hope many will get over being intimidated by a strong woman.” I agree.

Men will always be intimidated by women who are stronger than they are; even women are intimidated by women who are stronger than they are, and men are intimidated by men who are stronger than they are, in fact “intimidation” is defined by superior strength and a contest, like an election, is purportedly decided by superior strength, though that is debatable.

However, equality of women in a democracy is an entirely different thing; equality of women and men in a democratic society in regard to respect, consideration, and opportunity, comes also with equality of “responsibility”.

The lack of equality for women is not a kind of handicap that permits women privilege to park in a “handicapped” parking space. However, the inequality of women does ultimately provide the female privilege as “the weaker sex to be protected”.

There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who has accepted the responsibility for equality and succeeded is winning gender equality; Nancy Pelosi is one of my heroines, in taking the full responsibility for being the first ever woman, Speaker of the House, because she was stronger than her male competition. God bless Speaker Pelosi.

However, to speak of gender equality requires everyone of both gender, understand gender differences, and make provision for those differences equitably.

lady-justice-w-sword

Both gender must realize that when the female of the species is not treated equitably, the male of the species also is treated inequitably, in the same breath; that is a proven. Gender inequality is NOT A ONE WAY STREET. Men who support gender equality have good reason; the female is definitely not the “weaker sex” deserving of privilege. Lady Justice is a female with a scale and a sword.

The female of the species needs to understand that equality is not a privilege; gender equality is a responsibility of women as well as men. And God bless women and men for the difference in gender.

ORCA WHALES, HAPPINESS, TOE FUNGUS, AND BEASTIALITY, IN THE LAND OF FRUITS AND NUTS!

September 15th, 2016

Today, I am reading, “California Bans Orca Captivity and Breeding”: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/orca-captivity-ban-california-seaworld_us_57d8c35de4b09d7a68808c30?section=&

orca-4-hunt-seals

Now I have lived on the planet earth for almost a century, and you never know how long you will live, because at birth, it is inevitable that you will die and there is not a damn thing you can do to prevent it. Therefore I have never sweat dying because I can’t prevent it, but I can do my utmost best to live a life of contentment, or happiness if you prefer; I have basically succeeded and have no regrets.

Therefore, I do resent anything that wastes valuable minutes and seconds of my happy life, things that detract from my otherwise happy contented life, things like especially TV commercials and other devastating methods of inflicting American capitalistic torture and mayhem on their customers.

Especially, I resent horrid TV commercials, that wastes a third of my otherwise contented life for every 30 minute of a TV program on advertising and commercials; like when I watch my favorite sitcom, “The Big Band Theory”, and TV forces me to instead waste my time watching and observing on my personal TV screen, human suffering from the malady and ugliness of “Toe Fungus” in living color! There should be a law against American capitalistic advertising.

toe-fungus

Instead, today I read about a new law in California banning Orca captivity and breeding.

orca-2-several-jump-w-audience
I read this story on my computer, which allows me to post my response to that news item; the story caught me at a bad moment, I presume, and I felt obligated to respond to the story. I hysterically posted four responses in my concern:

Response 1: Insanity exists right here in River City!

Response 2: California bans Orca captivity and breeding; however, there are no laws preventing Orcas from breeding with humans, capturing humans, eating humans, subjugating humans and this is totally unfair to human beings.

Response 3: California bans Orca breeding; I can honestly say that I have never impregnated an Orca in my entire life; I am innocent!

Response 4: The great United States of America, has become the great United Ignorant Nitwits; If Orcas are prohibited to be “kept in captivity” because it is unnatural, then dogs and cats should be prohibited from being kept in captivity, because they held in captivity as dependent and subservient to humanity; dogs and cats should be returned to their natural habitat.

And it should be illegal to eat vegetables, kill vegetables, and burn vegetables in ovens built for that sordid purpose.

God created man; what hath God wrought!

End of posts.

Needless to say, I feel much better for posting my reaction to California’s new law of the land.

And, I do hope the Orcas find contentment in eating penguins and seals in their freedom; I cannot speak for the penguins and seals.

HILLARY CLINTON’S BIG LETHAL MISTAKE!

September 13th, 2016

Today, I am reading, “Is Hillary Blowing It?”: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/miles-mogulescu/is-hillary-blowing-it_b_11983738.html?

“Hillary Clinton is committing serious unforced errors that almost make one wonder if this life-long politician ever passed Politics 101,” Says author, Miles Mogulescu.

HILLARY KISSINGER

Hillary is making the same mistakes as Gore and Kerry. And you could point to Obama’s victory in 2008 as the antithesis!

The Democrats fault the liberal progressives who voted for Nader being responsible for Gore’s loss; but in reality, it was Gore who drove them to Nader. Gore wouldn’t let liberal President Bubba Clinton even campaign for him.

Democrats fault the liberal progressives who didn’t go to the poles in 2004, for Kerry’s loss to W. Bush. But it was Kerry who attacked and trashed Howard Dean that kept the liberal progressives at home on elections day.
Kerry gloated about winning the primary, and offered liberals nothing for their vote; he took their vote “for granted”

In 2008, it was Hillary who trashed Black Obama as not having sense enough to answer the White House phone, if it rang at 3AM; but Obama won and then offered Hillary any cabinet post she wanted, and she became Secretary of State to boast about now in the 2016 primary, even though she never accomplish much as Sec. of State in 4 years, but Kerry has already make an Iran deal and now a Syrian Russian deal in a short time.

Hillary trashed all the liberal progressive Bernie agenda in the Primary, with which Bernie gained millions of votes, won ten States and had 1400 delegates (elected) to the convention, and at the convention the Bernie supporters were trashed by Hillary’s DNC. Yet, Hillary will blame liberal progressive voters for her loss, if liberals don’t vote in November.

Hillary supporters are STILL TRASHING BERNIE SUPPORTERS, AND BERNIE ENDORSED HER; WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH HILLARY?

BERNIE SANDERS IN A CROWD 2 OUTSIDE

Hillary has a terrible popularity rating. Doesn’t Hillary see why? How does she expect to win if voters DON’T LIKE HER!

Hillary supporters are telling liberals that they need to vote for Hillary as the lesser of two evils to defeat Trump, because that’s what they would do if Bernie was nominated, and they are mad because liberals do not vote for the lesser of two evils, because they are still voting for an evil. Meanwhile, Hillary is crapping on the liberal agenda to attract Republican voters and Wall Street contributors. And Bernie has the better popularity rating than Hillary. Holy crap!

Personally, I see Hillary going the way of Gore and Kerry! And personally, I cannot vote for Hillary or Trump with a clear conscience. I want a liberal agenda, and neither candidate offers me anything, they are both supported by Corporate America and serve Corporate America’s interests! I will not vote for a candidate that pledges loyalty under a God that has forsaken liberal progressive voters and favors Wall Street’s agenda.

HILLARY, PNEUMONIA, POLITICS, AND MEDICAL SCIENCE!

September 13th, 2016

Today I read, “What Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia diagnosis means, medically-speaking”:
http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/what-hillary-clinton%E2%80%99s-pneumonia-diagnosis-means-medically-speaking/ar-AAiN0O9?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp

First of all, let me state I am not a supporter of Sec. Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump for President of the United States of America; I consider both a disaster. However, I do not at this time consider Sec. Clinton’s bout with pneumonia to be debilitating, having had pneumonia myself after having been vaccinated for Pneumonia, and I recovered quickly from it; I also pray the Secretary had been vaccinated.

HILLARY PRESIDENTIAL 1

I found the article valid and informative, with one exception that does not have political implication in my own mind.

I am old and have lived through the era when pneumonia was the Specter of Death, prior to the discovery of penicillin; I remember the day my neighbor had pneumonia before penicillin in the 1930s and he recovered. It seemed a miracle, we had presumed he would die before the next morning.

I remember visiting a friend in the hospital in the 1980s, not knowing what his illness was, and he confided in me that he had “AIDS” and pneumonia and was expected to recover from pneumonia, but he was told he would get pneumonia again soon and was expected to die; I was devastated to lose my friend to AIDS.

AIDS and pneumonia and death became synonymous to me at this time. Today, it appears that modern medication is able to restrain AIDS virus.

Now I want to make my position clear; I so not want to imply AIDS may be the cause of Sec. Hilton’s pneumonia or is related in any way. Because friends and family of mine have died of AIDS, were not gay, acquired the disease other than gay sex, and I detest people implying the disease is a exclusively a gay infliction.

However, I did believe this excellent otherwise, article was remiss in not mentioning the AIDS, pneumonia issue; I write this as purely informational. Despite my political philosophy, I wish both candidates good health; God spare Americans the misery of having terrible Vice Presidential candidate replacing terrible Presidential candidates, a disease all American voters would suffer.

I have nothing else to say! God bless you Sec. Clinton!

MY PERSONAL REASON FOR NOT CELEBRATING OR COMMEMORATING SEPTEMBER 11TH!

September 12th, 2016

Today is September 11, 2016, and it is another day.

Personally, I have nothing to celebrate today, I have nothing to commemorate today; I experienced both Pearl Harbor and 9/11/01 and felt the same on both occasions.

Pearl Harbor was a horror story, which lasted about four years, hit me personally, as it hit almost all Americans. I knew the cause, I suffered the consequences, and I celebrated the end and hoped I never had to deal with war again.

NINE ELEVEN TWIN TOWERS 2

However, I do not celebrate Pearl Harbor day, VE Day, or VJ Day; I celebrated peace when it came and hoped I never experienced another war or celebrate another peace.

I suffered hearing the news of September 11, 2001, while living in Europe. I felt it was December 7, 1941 all over again!

Then I breathed a sigh of relief when I found it was ONLY terrorists, and not a war of nations; there is a big difference. What I did not know at that time was the cause of the terrorist attack. Terrorists all have a cause; that cause is the terrorist’s motivation.

There is a huge difference between a “war” and a “terrorist attack”; in a war, there is a cause and two nations kill each other’s people, until one wins and a peace treaty is made, resolving the cause of war.

IRAQ WAR CEMETARY

In a terrorist attack, terrorism is a crime, there is no war, and there is “police action” and where more than one country is concerned there is “international police action”. I was relived in 2001, knowing that it was an act of terrorism and NO WAR WOULD ENSUE!

At the time of Bin Laden’s heinous terrorist attack, in 2001, I did not know the reason for the terrorist attack, nor did my government tell me then; my government either did not know, or they did NOT WANT ME TO KNOW! MY GOVERNMENT FAILED ME IN MANY, MANY WAYS; I WAS DEVASTATED! I’m still devastated today!

When I heard my beloved America was going to invade Afghanistan, a nation having nothing to do with the Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s Attack, the Afghan People had nothing to do with the Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s heinous attack, and the Saudi Arabian bin Laden was not a Taliban who was the ruling extremist Muslim religious group who was in control of Afghanistan, and who was engaged in a civil war. Even before the Invasion of Afghanistan, I publically objected to the Afghan Invasion and war that killed or maimed hundreds of thousands of innocent Afghan children, mothers, and fathers from American bombing, where THERE WERE NO MILITARY TARGETS.

AFGHAN CASUALTY OF AMERICAN BOMBING  4

Personally, in 2001 I was castigated by friends, neighbors, and my own family for objecting to the invasion of Afghanistan and killing of innocent Afghans WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SAUDI ARABIAN TERRORIST BIN LADEN, WHO LATER WAS KNOWN TO ATTACK AMERICA FOR “AMERICA PUTTING A MILITARY BASE IN SAUDI ARABIAN MUSLIM HOLY LAND in 1990, FOR DESERT STORM, AND THEREBY DEFILING MUSLIM HOLY LAND AND THAT WAS THE ACTUAL “CAUSE” FOR BIN LADEN’S HEINOUT ATTACK ON 9/11!

And, I felt personally violated by my country, my friends, and my relatives in 2001; when I returned to America in 2005, after living in Europe for five years, I discovered that Americans did not even know, and many today do not know, WHY BIN LADEN MADE HIS HEINOUS ATTACK ON AMERICA? Bin Laden’s reason did not excuse him or his attack, BUT IT WAS BIN LADEN’S REASON FOR HIS ATTACK!

Then in 2003, my beloved country invaded Iraq, without a declaration of war stating cause, claiming Saddam Hussein of Iraq had responsibility for Saudi Arabian, bin Laden’s heinous terrorist attack; he did not. My American government lied to me and the world.

SADDAM EXECUTION 2

Today on the ‘commemoration’ of the Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s heinous attack, both long disastrous wars of aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq are over; but there is not victory of either war, because there was NO LEGITIMATE REASON FOR GOING TO WAR WITH EITHER AFHANISTAN OR IRAQ! THERE WAS NOTHING TO WIN, EXCEPT BENEFITS FOR CORPORATE AMERICAN FOREIGN INVESTMENTS AND OIL.

Thousands of brave, heroic American soldiers have been maimed or killed in combat in Afghanistan and Iraq in a worthless cause for the American People; Bin Laden was apprehended by President Obama’s sending a few Special Forces into Pakistan for “police action” without going to war.

Personally, I do not celebrate September 11th; I do not commemorate September 11th! Personally, I take no pride in America for September 11; I do take pride the Peoples reaction to 9/11 and in my two grandsons who fought in combat for “their America” in the W. Bush wars I opposed. I do love Americans; I am ashamed of America for unnecessarily defiling Muslim Holy Land in 1990, and for waging wars of aggression against innocent people; but that is not the fault of the People, like me.

And, personally I am sorry to have lost the respect of friends and relatives for opposing my American Government’s religious wars of aggression, hatred, and Corporate American benefit; I only followed my conscience. And, I do not celebrate September11th.

AMERICA, IRAQ, 911, IRAN, SYRIA, ISIS, RUSSIA AND THE 2016 ELECTION; GOD HAVE MERCY ON AMERICA!

September 11th, 2016

Today, I read, “U.S., Russia Reach Deal on Syria Ceasefire”: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/us-russia-syria-ceasefire_us_57d33604e4b03d2d459aaa79?section=&

Both Presidential candidates’ rhetoric, Hillary’s and Trump’s, regarding Russia has been deplorable and not at all in the interests of the United States of America; basically it is BS. The future of America is bound to suffer. Americans have no decent viable Presidential Candidate to vote for. 2016 is disaster time!

Russia is our neighbor “who Sarah Palin can see from her kitchen window” regardless of American opinion of Russia’s leader; I might add, America’s Presidential candidates for 2016, in comparison, are not all that great to me and to many other voters like me who opposed the candidacy of both Trump and Hillary.

putin-w-printing-not-satified-w-everying

President Obama and Sec. Kerry have worked diligently to resolve the problem of Iraq and Syria, despite America’s war hawk Presidential candidates Hillary and Trump; both Hillary and Trump scare the hell out of me AND THE REST OF THE WORLD.

Unfortunately too many American voters take the attitude, “I don’t give a damn what the rest of the world thinks or does; these Americans also scare the hell out of me. To me, WORLD PEACE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE AMERICA EVER, EVER FACES.

And personally, I have appreciated President Obama’s constant effort to establish World Peace and my number one disapproval of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, is that she made not one major personal effort to establish world peace and I have always opposed her based on her vote in 2002 as a Senator, with Republicans, FOR W. Bush’s Iraq Invasion Resolution! I can forgive but not forget the anguish the Iraq War cause the world, and me, when I have to vote for the best to be my President!

As for Donald Trump, he is a idiotic nit wit who would, as President, “nuke” any nation that disagrees with America’s aggressive wars for the benefit of Corporate America.

America desperately needs a friendly working relationship with Russia on foreign issues despite disagreement with Russia in Russia’s behavior in Russia’s own area of influence, the Ukraine.

Also, I disagree with the Constitution’s undemocratic 22nd Amendment which deprives me of voting for my personal best choice of President, whom would in 2016 would be President Obama for a third term, instead of either Trump or Hillary. My first choice, of course, would have been Bernie Sanders, who was defeated by the corrupt Democratic Party DNC who ‘selected’ Hillary who was the 2008 loser to President Obama. The DNC undermined Bernie’s candidacy despite his choice by millions of Democratic voters.

I mourn for America and the future of my children and my grandchildren; they are already suffering anguish from America’s wars of aggression for the benefit of corporate America.

God help and forgive America!

THE TOTAL IGNORANCE OF LABOR HISTORY AND FUNCTION OF ORGANIZED LABOR BY THE AVERAGE AMERICAN, IS EPIDEMIC!

September 6th, 2016

Today I read, “Unions Need to Make More Political Donations”:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-macaray/labor-day-blues_b_11861578.html?

The Author, David Macaray, suggests the AFL CIO “buy” 50 Congressmen at $200,000 each, to get legislation needed; he states, “One thing the House of Labor has plenty of is plenty of money.”

Personally, I doubt a paltry $200,000 would even buy a “cheap congressman”; and, certainly Corporate America would be willing to double the $200,000. Futher, I doubt very much the AFL-CIO is as wealthy as Macaray believes they are, and they certainly have many other essential expenses.

And, I penned this response to Macaray’s news article.

BERNIE PIC W STRIKERS.

Please Mr. Macaray, stick to writing plays; you do not know anything about labor unions or politics. What you get in American news media is what Corporate America wants you to get because Corporate America owns and censors all mainstream news media and since their profits come from Corporate Advertising, and not their customers, the mainstream news media “uses” its customers, IT DOES NOT FEEL OBLIGATED TO INFORM THEM!

Obviously, you are unaware that America’s foremost problem today is that our economy today is grossly inequitably distributed, the average wage is lower and going down while profits are at a record high, the Middle Class working population is disappearing along with their jobs, poverty is increasing, the Republicans are attempting to eliminate all unions, Wisconsin has already effectively eliminated all government workers unions, and “Citizens United” allows the wealthy and corporate America to contribute any amount they want to politicians, because the US Supreme Court eliminated all laws limiting political contributions.

I won’t go further into the effect this has had on local and state governments, which has allowed the wealthy and corporate entities to buy local and state elections, decide elections, and take over the Republican Party since 2013.

But most important of all, you need to be aware than labor unions do not “earn profits”, they only collect dues from the working Middle Class and Poor; the belief that labor unions are wealthy and capable to “buying elections” is a damn lie, promulgated by the Republican Party along with the other big lie that Labor unions are criminally corrupt and steal from business and industry. There are many more times bankers in jail than labor leaders.

Your concept that labor unions should invest more money in elections to control them is among a lot of things, laughable. I have personally been treasurer of an AFL-CIO local union and can tell you that our budget was hardly large enough to provide postage for our local; and at the same time, the powers that be, claimed our local was spending huge sums to make contributions to local politicians.

And you should be aware that both political candidate for the Presidency in 2016, have already been bought by Wall Street contributors; labor is no match for Wall Street contributors.

Corporate American mainstream news media, simply keeps reporting stories of Jimmie Hoffa as an example of the average labor union local president in American and, that has become the common understanding of the average American’s concept of an American Labor Union leader.

This Jimmie Hoffa concept of the American labor movement is actually how labor is perceived by otherwise intelligent, educated Americans; all you have to do is ask them. The ignorance of labor by the average American is epidemic!

Also, the history of the labor movement is covered in a very few pages of the history text books in our public schools, and the history teachers ordinarily skip those pages as unimportant; I taught public school American History.

And further, if you ask a hundred people on the street who President Obama’s Secretary of Labor is, I doubt any one of them could tell you who he is; by the way, do you know?

Mr. Macaray please don’t write any more stupid articles about American labor unions, they have enough problems as it is.
