HOW I BECAME CONVINCED THAT AMERICA DESPERATELY NEEDS A QUALIFED AND TOTALLY FEMALE PRESIDENT! GOD BLESS THE AMERICAN FEMALE AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

The most important things in life, I learned in childhood from my unique and idyllic mother and father. I was an exceedingly lucky person to have the parents, grandparents, and siblings that I was born to love.

They taught me “real life”, and it stayed with me my entire life, and that is what I am.

Personally, I never sought exceptional wealth; I concentrated on being happy regardless of wealth. . I’m now 88 years old and happy; I consider myself a success!

Both of my parents taught me that “probably”, I would be poor all my life. They were right, I became a school teacher.

My parents taught me that my being poor, to succeed in life, I would have to work for an employer; and for me to succeed in life, it would be necessary for me to convince my employer that I was the best damn employee he ever had. It worked for me most of the time.

And, my parents taught me that I also need to be aware of the fact, employees need to have a voice in what became of them, and the “only voice” of working Middle Class and Poor was Labor Unions; Labor Unions are the only voice of working Middle Class and Poor employees, who happen to be a majority of voters in America.

One other thing that my mother taught me. She taught me that a big difference between the male and female is how they think, and behave, and their philosophy of life. She taught me well. Women are different from men, in “thinking”.

Mom also taught me that women were equal to men, and children are equal to adults, and that “God counts each sparrows fall.” And, Mom didn’t care much for sparrows, but still considered them equal and did not approve of my shooting at them with my BB gun.

So it is that I try to see a woman’s perspective and a man’s perspective and the differences. And, many times over my 88 years of age, I would have rather had a woman President of the United States than a man, because she had the better perspective.

Today I saw a piece by Senator Kamala Harris on Facebook. And she said: “Something I’ve seen over and over again in my own career is that women in power bring a different perspective. An essential perspective. And it’s a perspective I hope to see represented more and more at every level of society.”

I was so glad to read that based on the most recent elections, and now I have to make a confession of sorts.

In 2016, I had a choice to make of a male Presidential Candidate and a female candidate. Personally, my conscience bothered me, about voting for either and the female Presidential candidate was one that I had known over a long period of time. And, because in my estimation, Hillary Clinton did not think like a female, she did not talk like a female, she did not often dress like a typical female, and when she spoke of political issues, she sounded more like a male candidate than a female candidate and I disapproved of her typically male arguments with which I disagreed also.

Now first of all let me say that I do not “hate” Hillary Clinton! I do disagree with her on most political issues! But I have to admit that I do not consider Hillary, representative of a candidate of the female gender in her perspective and thinking. And as such, she represents just other male type candidates that I most often criticize. And, Hillary, was also financed by Wall Street and anti-labor.

P

Personally, in the last election, my conscience require that I vote against President Donald Trump whom I did not see as qualified for the Presidency; and that required that I vote for Hillary because of America’s 2 party system. Just not voting or voting for a third party candidate would be helping elect Donald Trump.

So, I voted for Hillary! Hillary lost! I lost! I sincerely believe that almost any other pro labor female Presidential candidate would have beat the terrible “asinine” Donald Trump. All Trump had going for him was that he was the winning Republican Candidate in the Republican Primary; he lost the majority vote of the general election and won the Electoral College (with the help of the Russians not necessarily the Republicans).

So, I am overjoyed by the 2018 Congressional elections because of so many qualified women winning Congressional Seats. I now look forward to America’s 2020 Presidential elections (IF we have one).

In 2020, I actually do expect to see a great, respected, and worthy female Presidential candidate for the Presidency from either one of Political Parties, who supports working Middle Class and Poor Americans, and I hope to be able to vote for her.

AMERICAN HISTORY LESSON FOR TODAY’S AMERICAN VOTERS AND PROSPECTIVE VOTERS

PRAYER NIEMOELLER
“First they came … is a famous statement and provocative poem written by Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis’ rise to power and subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came_…

First They Came

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

“Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

“Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

“Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)


……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
“When Pastor Niemöller was put in a concentration camp we wrote the year 1937; when the concentration camp was opened we wrote the year 1933, and the people who were put in the camps then were Communists. Who cared about them? We knew it, it was printed in the newspapers.
“Who raised their voice, maybe the Confessing Church? We thought: Communists, those opponents of religion, those enemies of Christians – “should I be my brother’s keeper?”
“Then they got rid of the sick, the so-called incurables. – I remember a conversation I had with a person who claimed to be a Christian. He said: Perhaps it’s right, these incurably sick people just cost the state money, and they are just a burden to themselves and to others. Isn’t it best for all concerned if they are taken out of the middle [of society]? — Only then did the church as such take note. Then we started talking, until our voices were again silenced in public. Can we say, we aren’t guilty/responsible? The persecution of the Jews, the way we treated the occupied countries, or the things in Greece, in Poland, in Czechoslovakia or in Holland, that were written in the newspapers
“I believe, we Confessing-Church-Christians have every reason to say: mea culpa, mea culpa! We can talk ourselves out of it with the excuse that it would have cost me my head if I had spoken out.”

NAZI PRISONERS WITH DISABILITIES
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
And in 1954, in the United States of America there was enacted: “Communist Control Act of 1954”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Control_Act_of_1954
“The Communist Control Act (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) is a piece of United States federal legislation, signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower on 24 August 1954, which outlaws the Communist Party of the United States and criminalizes membership in, or support for the Party or “Communist-action” organizations and defines evidence to be considered by a jury in determining participation in the activities, planning, actions, objectives, or purposes of such organizations.”


AMERICAN NAZI PARADE IN NEW YORK CITY IN 1930’S
…………………………………………………..
PERSONAL NOTE BY RICHARD BLANKENBURG Ed.D.

In 1956, two years after passage of the above, Communist Control Act of 1954, I moved to San Diego California because I had a contract to teach in public schools in San Diego. Before I could get a license to teach in California Schools, I was required sign a legal affidavit that I was not, nor ever had been, a member of the Communist Party nor any of the affiliates of the Communist Party

Personally, I had no problem signing the legal affidavit that I was not a Communist, however I had considerable concern that I could be a teacher in California and be a member of the American Nazi Party, the Ku Klux Klan, the John Birch Society including their “front group” the Tea Party, and any other fascist political groups that exists today, in America.

Further, as a licensed teacher of “American Government” and “American History”, I was “required” by the State of California to teach my students the great advantages of living in the “democracy” of the United States of America!

And, most certainly I was well aware of the threat of fascism as well as Communism, to our American democratic Republic!

There is no doubt in my own mind that I was and am, an “excellent teacher” by law! After you have read these 2 pages, I hope you have learned something of value that is important, in the current day and age in America; this was my objective!

Today, I am a retired California school teacher. God bless the American democratic Republic!

THIS IS IMPORTANT TO ME; AND IF YOU AGREE, I ASK YOU TO FORWARD IT!

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Today, Presidents’ Day, I watched on national television what amounted to, a political speech, by President Donald Trump opposing “socialism”!

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gestures and declares “You’re fired!” at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, June 17, 2015. REUTERS/Dominick Reuter TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY – RTX1GZCO

Personally, I am a retired public school teacher who taught government and United States History. In order to get a credential to teach in California, I was required in 1956 to sign a legal affidavit that I was not then nor had ever been a member of the Communist Party or any affiliate; however, I was free to have been a fascist, belonged to the American Fascist Party, the Ku Klux Klan, or be a Whites Supremacist fascist. Actually, I was none of these things.

It was actually illegal to be a Communist in 1956. Communist Party Illegal in U.S.” The Communist Control Act (68 Stat. 775, 50 U.S.C. 841-844) is a piece of United States federal legislation, signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower on 24 August 1954, which outlawed the Communist Party of the United States and criminalized membership in, or support for the Party or “Communist-action” organizations and defined evidence to be considered by a jury in determining participation in the activities, planning, actions, objectives, or purposes of such organizations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Control_Act_of_1954

However, as a political science graduate, I was not concerned that being a Communist was illegal, however every American citizen was free to be a fascist, a member of the American Nazi Party, a member of the Ku Klux Klan or a White Supremacist! And, in my teaching experiences I knew of teachers and students who were!

That said, I was dishearten by today’s speech by President Trump. A few weeks ago I mentioned in another post that in two years of his Presidency, I had never remembered President Trump to say the word “democracy” or use it in any one of his many speeches. In his speech today, the President used it out of context or meaning, many, many times over (did the President read my other post)?

The President today, was about the Venezuelan political and economic tragedy and its relationship to America and the world.

As stated, I was dishearten by the President’s speech, his misuse of political and economic terminology, and the many falsehoods in his speech. Personally, as a teacher, and student of political science, history, and economics, President Trump’s speech was both a disaster and frightening.

Please note that I do not hate anyone, including President Trump or other political ignoramuses; that is a requirement of a respectable and “good teacher”. My mother taught me that all people are considered equal in God’s eyes; she told me, “God counts each sparrows fall” (and she did not care for sparrows). However, I have grown to expect much more of a President of the United States.

My definition of democracy as a political science teacher is that democracy is a form of government in which, (1) all citizens vote, (2) a majority rules, and (3) liberty exists; and, liberty is defined as freedom, limited to the extent that the freedom of one citizen does not infringe upon the rights of other citizens. It is liberty (U.S. Bill of Rights) that protects the minority from the tyranny of the majority in America.

The Webster Dictionary definition of democracy is: “A government in which the supreme power is held by the People.”

In his speech today, President Trump’s definition of American democracy appeared to be, “A government in which the supreme power is held by capitalists!” To me, government and economics are two different things.

A Webster Dictionary definition of fascism is: “A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation often race and stands for a centralized autocratic, often militaristic government.” To my horror, this describes to me President Trump by definition!

Now I want to quote the U.S. Constitution, for my concept of our American democratic Republic; PREAMBLE TO THE US CONSTITUTION: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WEALFARE, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.” (Capital letters by the author for emphasis).

The American Constitution provides for “both, capitalism and/or socialism, depending on the needs of the People”. The U.S. Army is socialistic, public streets, roads, fire protection and police protection are totally “socialistic”.

Our Constitution provides for “capitalism” in Amendment IV: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

In his speech today, President Trump kept using the term “democracy” to refer to American capitalism and not our democratic Constitutional government; and, he repeatedly said “America is not socialist and will never be socialist”. We are not, it is both capitalistic and socialistic depending upon People’s needs!

Our 1787 Constitution provides for our socialistic U.S. Postal Service: The U.S. Constitution states, in Article I Section 8, “The Congress shall have the Power….. To establish Post Offices and post Roads.” Our forefathers considered their only form of communication at that time, too important to have to depend on the “perhaps biased” political private sector.

If my post has impressed you with American democracy, and the questionable understanding today of democracy by President Trump, please forward it. Remember, America is neither socialist nor capitalist, it is whatever is best for the People, according to our Constitution. Keep it that way!

HERE IS A QUICK ANALYSIS OF OUR “AMERICAN DEMOCRACY’S, STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH BY CURRENT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP!

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

PRESIDENT TRUMP GAVE THE LONGEST STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH IN OUR HISTORY AND USED THE MOST WORDS OF ANY STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH IN HISTORY AND NEVER UTTERED THE WORD “DEMOCRACY’, ONE SINGLE TIME. BY HIS ACTION AND OTHER COMMENTS, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP BELIEVES THAT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS A “DEMOCRACY”!

AS A DEVOTED AMERICAN CITIZEN, AND STUDENT OF OUR DEMOCRACY, AND RETIRED TEACHER OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND HISTORY, “DEMOCRACY IS A TREASURED WORD” IN MY AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC’S HISTORY. AMERICAN DEMOCRACY IS GUARANTEED RIGHT THERE IN OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION OF 1787; EVERY CITIZEN SHOULD READ IT!

AS A RETIRED AMERICAN TEACHER OF HISTORY AND GOVERNMENT, I WAS DEEPLY OFFENDED BY THE LIES IN HIS STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH, BY PRESIDENT TRUMP! IN MY LIFETIME (88 YEARS OLD), I HAVE NEVER HEARD A MORE ATROCIOUS AMERICAN STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH!

ANOTHER TERRIBLE LIE BY PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS, “AMERICA IS NOT A SOCIALIST COUNTRY!”

AS A TEACHER, I WOULD HAVE TO SAY AMERICA HAS NEVER BEEN A TOTALLY CAPITAISTIC COUNTRY, NOR A SOCIALIST COUNTRY, HOWEVER, OUR AMERICAN CONSTITUTION PROVIDES FOR BOTH, CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM, OUT OF NECESSITY, LIKE MOST EVERY NATION.

THE PREAMBLE TO THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION READS: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.” “PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE” IS CAPITLIZED BY THE WRITER FOR EMPHASIS.

ACTUALLY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIKE “ALL NATIONS”, WAS ‘FOUNDED FOR ONE PURPOSE ONLY; EVERY NATION HAS BEEN FOUNDED “ONLY” TO PROVIDE FOR THE PEOPLE ‘COLLECTIVELY’, ALL THOSE THINGS THAT THE PEOLPLE AS INDIVIDUALS CANNOT PROVIDE FOR THEIR SELF AS AN INDIVIDUAL. AND THAT IS A SOCIALISTIC ENTITY!

FOR THE BEST EXAMPLE, AN ARMY AND NAVY. THE ARMY AND NAVY ARE SOCIALISTIC ENTITIES!

THE AMERICAN ARMY, NAVY, LOCAL POLICE AND FIRE PROTECTIONS, THE VERY ROADS AND STREETS WE DRIVE AND WALK ON, ARE ALL SOCIALISTIC ENTITIES. THIS IS “DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM” AND DOES NOT PRECLUDE A CAPITALISTIC ECONOMY!

AND THE FOUNDERS OF OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION PROVIDED FOR A GOVERNMENTAL, UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE, BECAUSE IT WAS TOO IMPORTANT (LIKE THE ARMY) TO TRUST TO CAPITALISTIC INDIVIDUAL CITIZENS.

AMERICAN CAPITALISM IS BASED UPON THE CONSTITUTION’S FOURTH AMERNDEMENT:

Amendment IV: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but on probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or things to be seized.“ And, Amendment V: “No Person shall . . . be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.”

CAPITALISM IS BASED ON COMPETITION!

SOCIALISM IS BASED UPON COOPERATION!

BECAUSE CAPITALISM IS BASED ON COMPETITION, IT REQUIRES THE GOVERNMENT TO EXERT SOME CONTROL FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSUMERS (AND THE CONSUMER IS EACH AND EVERY CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA).

THE GREAT AMERICAN AND REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT TEDDY ROOSEVELT (THE “TRUST BUSTER”) SAID ABOUT CORPORATIONS: “OUR AIM IS NOT TO DO AWAY WITH CORPORATIONS, ON THE CONTRARY, THESE BIG AGGREGATIONS ARE AN INEVITABLE DEVELOPMENT OF MODERN INDUSTRIALISM. . . WE ARE NOT HOSTILE TO THEM; WE ARE MERELY DETERMINED THAT THEY SHALL BE SO HANDLED AS TO SUBSERVE THE PUBLIC GOOD. WE DRAW THE LINE AGAINST MISCONDUCT, NOT AGAINST WEALTH.”

“BUT THERE IS ANOTHER HARM; AND IT IS EVIDENT THAT WE SHOULD TRY TO DO AWAY WITH THAT. THE GREAT CORPORATIONS WHICH WE HAVE GROWN TO SPEAK OF RATHER LOOSELY AS TRUSTS ARE THE CREATURES OF THE STATE, AND THE STATE NOT ONLY HAS THE RIGHT TO CONTROL THEM, BUT IT IS DUTY BOUND TO CONTROL THEM WHENEVER THE NEED OF SUCH CONTROL IS SHOWN.” SPEECH AT KENNEDY PLAZA, PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND (23 AUGUST 1902).

IN PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH, HE STATED THAT ONE OF HIS GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN HIS FIRST TWO YEARS AS PRESIDENT WAS TO ELIMINATE MORE LAWS CONTROLING CORPRATIONS, THAN ANY OTHER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES; PRESIDENT TRUMP ALSO MAINTAINED THAT “ANY” GOVERNMENT REGULATION OF CORPORATIONS WAS “WRONG”.

AS A FORMER TEACHER, I FEEL COMPELLED TO WRITE THIS FOR THE BENEFIT OF OTHER AMERICANS WHO LOVE OUR DEMOCRACY, THE AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC!

WE AMERICANS ARE AND HAVE BEEN SINCE 1787, ABLE TO ENJOY AND APPRECIATE OUR AMERICAN CAPITALISM, SOCIALISM, AND DEMOCRACY, AS A PEOPLE! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

WHERE OH WHERE, IS MY AMERICAN DEMOCRACY!

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

Personally, I’m disgusted with my American government; but I can’t quit trying to make it better!

Donald Trump is a fascist by definition, he is a White Supremacist, the thinks the President has the power of God and is all powerful and he can close down the Government to get what he warts in America. His motto is the same as Adolf Hitler’s was in Nazi Germany, Hitler said, “Make Germany Great Again” (but Hitler had a reason)!

Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement or regime that exalts nation, and often race and stand for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government.”

Donald Trump does not represent the Republican Party that I once knew! What happened to the Republican Party of Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Earl Warren.

Unfortunately, today the Democratic Party is not any better; in 2016, Hillary Clinton got the Endorsement for President and vote of Republican past President George Herman Bush. If Hillary Clinton is the best the Democrats can do, they should lose.

Both parties are driven by Wall Street. It is time for we the people provide our own party, our own news, and a united front!

Corporate America now purchases America’s candidates and elections.

And, six corporate conglomerates own ninety percent of ALL prime time news, both newspapers and TV news. American news is Corporate America propaganda!

America vastly needs a new Labor Party who represents the working Middle Class and Poor. A Party that represents the American majority; a Party that publishes their own newspaper and has their own TV news channel with all accurate news for “We the People”!

HOW DO YOU AS AN AMERICAN KNOW THAT WHAT YOU BELIEVE “POLITICALLY”, IS ACTUALLY TRUE?

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

If on Facebook, or on any other social media, you see posted “America is not a democracy”, it is a “REPUBLIC”, this post obviously is by a member or believer of the “John Birch Society”, a fascist group who does not believe that the United States of America was founded by our Constitutional forefathers as a democratic Republic.

Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement or regime that exalts nation, and often race and stand for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government.” Definitely, not a democratic form of Government!

The famous wealthy Koch brother’s father was a founder of the John Birch Society. The “John Birch Society Blue Book”, is the manifesto of the John Birch Society. Every American should read it for what it is, and what a threat it is to American Democracy (a copy of the Blue Book can be found in any local library).

John Birch Society Blue Book, p.124 “. . . democracy is merely a deceptive phrase, a weapon of demagoguery, and a perennial fraud.” (Continued in Footnote 25, p. 136.) “Our founding fathers . . . visibly spurned a democracy as probably the worst of all forms of government.”

Don’t believe it!

The John Birch Society works through “Front Groups”; John Birch Society Blue Book: “We would organize fronts—little fronts, big fronts, temporary fronts, permanent fronts, all kinds of fronts. . . “pp. 68-73.

The John Birch Society Koch Brothers financed the Republican Party’s “Tea Party” and “American Legislation Exchange Council” http://www.newyorker.com/…/2010/08/30/100830fa_fact_mayer
These are “front groups” of the John Birch Society.

In 2010, the Republican majority on the U.S. Supreme Court decided the “Citizens United” case which made U.S. Law limiting how much a corporations could contribute to elect political candidates; as a result, candidates for all political offices in America, including Congress, are bought and sold today. The present 2018 Congress was “bought”!

As a consequence, The Republican Party’s John Birch Society “Tea Party” took over (“bought”) the U.S. Congress in 2010 and still today, represents the John Birch Society control of Congress. (Though, Democrats will take over the House or Representatives in 2019.)

Don’t accept this as truth, do your own research, I’ve provided a few “reliable” sources.
Americans need to understand what has been going on in their United States democratic Republic, today; our democracy is being threatened by the John Birch Society and the Russian hackers of our national elections. You should absolutely question any author’s expertise.
(OVER P. 2 ON BACK)
As for my own expertise, I’m a retired public school teacher who taught high school government and history; it is hard for a teacher to find a good incentive to students to study history and government, and they are a required subject.

The best incentive I found, was to tell student the “only reason” for study of government and history was for them to be respectable voters when they become old enough to vote, history and government was an “adult thing”. Only then, did it seemed to appeal to students.

It greatly pains me to find high school graduates and voters, today, totally ignorant of our history and government! Today, I’m in great pain and, my cherished American democratic Republic is threatened!

It is important for today’s voters doing research, do it in reliable sources, and reliable resources are very difficult to find today.

For one reason, that I discovered was that 6 corporate conglomerates owned ninety percent of ALL PRIME TIME NEWS IN AMERICA, newspapers and television. And, almost all of today’s news is “edited”
Biased, and Corporate America propaganda!

ALL OF THE NEWS MEDIA’S INCOME (PROFITS) COMES FROM CORPORATE ADVERTISING NOT THEIR CUSTOMERS PURCHASES. ALTHOUGH CUSTOMERS ALSO PAY FOR THEIR NEWS, BOTH TV AND NEWSPAPERS ARE DEPENDENT ONLY ON ADVERTISING AND COMERICIALS. WHAT AMERICANS GET IS “CORPORATE AMERICA PROPAGANDA”.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/…/4fb4a982-7ce4-11e5…….

Unfortunately, most of America’s voters today are vastly misinformed.

MY DEAR FELLOW AMERICANS, IMMIGRATION PROBLEMS EXPLAINED!

Monday, December 31st, 2018

Here is what every American “should” know about the United States “Immigration Problems”!

The United States of America’s Federal Government has NO RECORDS of who living in America are actually “American Citizens” nor “where they are living”!

Repeat after me five times . . . ! “Now, I know why America has an immigration problems.” “Now, I know why . . . !”

Why you ask, doesn’t the American government know who its citizens are and where they live? And you damn well should ask! Americans seem to believe if the government knows who the citizens are or where to find them, the government would be INTRUDING ON AMERICAN CITIZENS’ “PRIVACY”!

So, now you know what America’s problem is and why it is not a problem solved by building a huge wall on the Mexican border which can be flown over, dug under, or just gone around!

The other important thing that you should know, is that your present President of the United States is stupid, a liar, and a fascist by definition! Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement or regime that exalts nation, and often race and stand for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government.”

Amen!

NO GREAT WALL OF TRUMPTON, TO COME BETWEEN ME AND MY MEXICAN FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS IN A U.S. DEMOCRACY!

Friday, December 28th, 2018

Personally, I just have to disagree with President Trump, and his Great Wall between Mexico and me, because I don’t hate Mexicans, and he does!

And, personally I have lived here in San Diego and the Mexican border, for most of my life. My Children were all born here; my children’s best friends were of Mexican culture. Some of my closest friends are Mexicans or of Mexican culture. Sone of my best friends ARE Mexican citizens who live just across the Border in Tijuana. And, I can go across the border and enjoy Mexico and my friend anytime I choose; I don’t have or need a damned wall separating me from Mexico and my neighbors whom I love; a line in the sand will do!

One of my totally American friends who was quite wealthy, used to go across the border to Tijuana to fill up their big expensive car with gasoline in Tijuana, because it was cheap, because the Mexican government subsidized gasoline for their working People, so they could drive to work and back. And, I never considered my wealthy friends smugglers for smuggling cheap, subsidized by the Mexican Government, gasoline into the United States, but that is what they were doing.

And, I had another working American friend who went to Mexico to buy her bakery goods, because the Mexican government subsidized the bakery goods so that bread would be more accessible to their poor Mexican families. Actually, I never considered my American friend smuggling Mexican subsidized bread into America, but that is what they were doing.

Personally, I never considered Mexican smugglers responsible for Americans who were drug addicts; instead, I considered American drug addicts responsible for Mexican smugglers!

And, I never considered Mexican fascists in America, as respectable citizens of Mexico or the USA; they were merely fascists like the American Nazi Party, the Ku Klux, Clan, and White Supremacists who are all legal in America and I always believed American fascists should be made Illegal, just like President Eisenhower made any American Communists illegal, in 1953!

Our American President makes no secret of his “hatred” for Mexicans! I was taught, when I was growing up, to “love my neighbors” and that includes loving my Mexican neighbors and friends.

So, I consider President Trump’s Wall against Mexico an affront, personally, and politically, to me and my Mexican neighbors. My American President is actually an affront to me and my neighbors and friends.

My President of the United States Trump, has shut down my American government, and he was not elected by a majority of American voters, he was elected by the antiquated Slave States in America, the “Electoral College” and Russians as proved by American legal experts.

We “true” Americans, must stand fast and restore American democracy, and our democratic Republic!

There is no American government today; the fascist American President Trump-Trump has closed the American government, so he is President of NO GOVERNMENT! Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement or regime that exalts nation, and often race and stand for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government.”

As an American citizen of a democracy, I say, “LET HELL FREEZE OVER BEFORE I PAY ONE CENT OF MY TAXES, TO BUILD A WALL AGAINST MY MEXICAN NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS!

As for our “closed government”, I say, it is income tax time; let us not pay income tax until we have an established American Government again, instead of a fascist President Trump dictator of an American government that does not even exist today because he closed it!

Tell the soldiers to go home until they can be paid for their service to America.

Let it be known that I do not blame Republicans for our Republican President Trump, he rebukes his own party like he does everyone else, but the REPUBLICAN PARTY IS RESPONSIBLE for eliminating our FASCIST PRESIDENT TRUMP from the democratic nation that he has closed down; Republicans control the Congress, the Supreme Court AND THE PRESIDENCY! Democrats can only “assist” Republicans for doing the right thing and “impeach and remove President Trump”!

BUILDING A STUPID WORTHLESS BORDER WALL, PUTTING THE BILL ON THE CUFF, AND CLOSING DOWN MY GOVERNMENT, IS AMERICA’S CURRENT REPUBLICAN DISASTER!

Tuesday, December 25th, 2018

I’ve lived in San Diego on the Mexican border most of my life. Mexicans are my friends and my neighbors.

A few years ago (1994), some huge walls were built on the border here in San Diego; it turns out the fence builders used illegal alien labor to build the damn walls, and the smugglers built tunnels under the wall and into San Diego that had electricity and all the modern conveniences. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/golden-state-fence-company-fined-5-million-hiring-undocumented-workers-build-border-wall/

ILLEGAL LABOR

Migrant workers taking American jobs are not the problem for American labor unions; it is the illegal American employers who are the problem. Illegal American employers, recruit illegal migrant workers and if caught, the employers pay a small fine and go out and recruit another illegal immigrant. In other nations they don’t have that problem; if an employer is caught with illegal employers working for them, the employer goes to prison. Walls won’t stop illegal American employers hiring illegal immigrants! Illegal American employers are the immigration problem.

Smuggling is easier by boat on some barren beach or by plane.


TUNNEL UNDER MEXICAN/USA BORDER

Smuggling dope into America is not America’s smuggling problem; American dope addicts are America’s smuggling problem. That doesn’t take a college degree or a tunnel to understand!

President Donald Bone-Spur Trump is guilty, of contributing to the migrant border problem; the President has illegal immigrants working for him in his hotels and golf courses! But have you ever heard of the President of the United State being found guilty of our labor laws regarding undocumented foreign workers!

Americans! Your President is just not very intelligent; and he apparently believes he, as President, is incapable of committing a crime. And that explains a lot of America’s political problems.

Trump apparently thinks he is America’s fascist dictator and American voters work for him, when actually, the President is supposed to work for us, “we the People”.

Causing a government failure simply because Congress and the People do not share our need for a worthless border wall, is not working for the voters, nor is building the President’s` damn wall in the voter’s interests.

My great grandchildren will be paying for President Trump’s stupid border Wall and the President doesn’t care; President Bone Spurs Trump has said that he doesn’t care about the national debt because he will be long gone before payment is due. END

GOLDA MEIR, ME, AND FEMININE POLITICAL INFLUENCE!

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Recently, I notice d that I am getting very old, I’m 88 but never consider myself old, until I recently began to often reflect on my past. And, today, I was thinking about how weird that I was, when I was young and thinking political?

So, I would like to share with you, what ran through my mind today about years and years ago; of all things it was about Golda Meir when she was an American citizen and before she moved to Israel and became the Israeli Prime Minister.

Then, I had for my own reasons lost faith in all American politicians and I felt what America needed most at that time was a female President like Golda Meir whom I greatly admired. So, today, I was thinking that it was strange that I would admire Meir, so much, and wish for her to be President of the United States of America!

Probably I was attracted to her because of her many feminine quotes, like these:

“Don’t be so humble – you are not that great.”

“Whether women are better than men I cannot say – but I can say they are certainly no worse.”

“Those who don’t know how to weep with their whole heart, don’t know how to laugh either.”

There is one quote of Golda that I simply could never agree; it is, “Not being beautiful was the true blessing. Not being beautiful forced me to develop my inner resources. The pretty girl has a handicap to overcome.”

Frankly, I never considered Golda Meir to not be beautiful; if I recognized her image, and I always did, I never considered her image as being ugly, or not attractive. She was the Golda that I admired.

Then Golda moved to Israel and became the Prime Minister; I missed her.

Golda was a great Prime Minister of Israel. But I so wanted her to be President of the United States; and today, that sounds crazy of me. Of course, Golda could never qualify for President of the United States, because she was not born a U.S. citizen or born within the United States.

Oh, by the way, I am not Jewish; and I never considered Golda Meir’s religion to change anything for me.

Today, all those years later, I wonder what her great attraction was, that caused me to so admire Golda Meir? Of course, I’m aware now that it was who, and what, she was!

For me, Golda was about the influence of my mother, I am sure. I was fortunate to have a wonderful, intelligent, and caring mother and father. What I perceived was that there was a great difference in how they thought, male and female, how the spoke, how they walked, and I could admire both of them for who they were.

What I realized was at times I needed my father and at other times I most needed my mother.

And at what we had in America, for a President, who was always a male; and there were times when what America really needed was a “mother’s” Presidential influence.

And, Golda Meir was a lot like my mother, and I could easily vote for my mother to be President; she could handle it, whatever the problem was. And, I could say the same about my father but they would handle things differently.

Unfortunately, America has never had a mother for President of the United States, when America really needed a mother!

My biggest problem in 2016, with considering Hillary Clinton for the Presidency, was that to me Hillary was definitely a woman, and feminine, however as a politician, to me, she talked like a male politician, she thought like a male politician, and appeared to be a woman who behaved like a male politician when running for office. Yet, Hillary is an attractive and obviously female.

And I was always aware that Golda Meir was definitely a female and a “female politician”!

Today, the best female politician that I recognize as definitely female, and definitely a female politician, is Sen. Elizabeth Warren. I do admire her as Presidential!

For me, Sen. Warren walks like a woman, speaks like a woman, and thinks like a woman and thinks like a female politician! So, I would vote for Elizabeth Warren for female President of the United States of America. I think of Liz Warren as I earlier thought of Golda Meir, so many years ago!

And now at my advanced age, I appreciate that Golda also said, “Old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you’re aboard, there’s nothing you can do.”
