Diversity: Is thy name a lie?


America, a country built on diverse beliefs, cultures, religions and ethnicities once united as a people strong against the foes of freedom. Have we lost the dream?


Today, August 29, 2016, I read an article about a black elementary school principal in Oregon who is celebrating her decision to prohibit students from pledging allegiance to the flag of our great nation. Her reason, “diversity.”


If offered the chance, I would ask this principal how she defines “diversity.”


Does not the denial of one’s right to Pledge Allegiance to the Flag of United States of America also deny one’s right to be diverse?


Does she, as a black woman claim the right to be diverse in her culture, beliefs, and religion?

I would chance to guess her answer is yes.


Then why, dear principal do you feel it contingent upon you to deny others their right to diversity?

The Insanity of American Politics


What has America become?

Each day, I rise, make my coffee, check my blood sugar (I am a type II diabetic), water my tomatoes and other plants, feed my birds and rabbits then sit down with a mug of coffee and read my e-mail.

Sound like you? Sound boring? I guess in a way it is, but once I get to Facebook things have a tendency to liven up.

Yes, I am a Facebook lunatic – I freely admit it. Yes, I know Facebook works against certain political agendas and for others. Yes, I understand I may only be beating my keyboard for exercise, yet there is always the hope that my words will touch someone.

American politics are at a crisis period in our evolving history. Faced with what appears to be the decay and demise of our corrupt two-party political system the average voters struggle in wonder – which might destroy tomorrow?

Tragically, we are confronted with one of the most histrionic, if not perverse choices in our long election history.Whether to vote for a female career politician accused of gross negligence, fabrications, distortion of facts and potential money laundering simply because she has an XY chromosome configuration or for a gruff, no-nonsense, predominantly factual business person who has an XX chromosome configuration?

Personally, I do my best to see both sides of the issue, but it is becoming a miserable fail for me.

Are these the best choices a country of over 300 million people has to offer us? I do not believe they are.

I believe that we, the American voter are being manipulated by career politicians and outside interests whose only agenda is POWER.

I think our two major political parties have lost every iota of common sense and loyalty their founders once hoped. I no longer feel either party has our best interests are heart.

We have been betrayed as sure as Sanders betrayed his followers.

If we wish to have our voices heard, we must cast our votes for the candidate we feel the least traitorous, not necessarily the most experience. We must choose carefully and wisely even if it goes against the grain of everything we were brainwashed to accept. We must hold true to our decision and, WE MUST ORGANIZE SO THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.

Silence of the Jackals.

Mr. Donald Trump

Republican Nominee for the Presidency of the United States of America
Dear Mr. Trump,

I have followed with interest, your rise to challenge the long-standing corrupt political parties currently in power here in America. I believe in you. I believe in your ability to take a broken country and mend it. I believe in your ability to macro-manage a complex system and, more importantly, pare it down. I believe you have the knowledge and skills to turn our economy around, rebuild our defense capabilities and return our nation to its rightful place in the world.

I also believe you are being foolish in seeing every verbal assault by the left as a challenge to your integrity. Does the wise man win by feeding the jackals?

You have been fortunate in life. You were given opportunities and challenges along with stability and love. You have won, and you have lost, but you have always come out ahead for the experience. You have shared your knowledge with your family and thousands of others in the hopes of improving their lives. I feel you have been successful.

It is time for you to share your knowledge with a nation in heavy laden by corruption, anarchy, and terrorism.

It is time for you to silence the jackals with your most powerful weapon – do not feed the jackals. Do not feed them with words, destroy them with silence!

Do not tell me what the jackals did, explain to me, the poor voter who is trying to survive on Social Security that is being given away to illegal immigrants, what will you do to help me?

Do not cater to the jackals who claim you incompetent, prove to me that you are competent to lead me, protect me and make my life better.

Do not foolishly follow the jackal’s parade of the wealthy who proclaim allegiance to a fraud. Show us those who will join you in your triumphal march to the rebuilding of America – let us know the strength of your legions, the real Americans ready to do battle against the corrupt.

Silence the jackals with your wisdom and leadership skills.

My Reply to Clinton

August 2016


Dear Ms. Clinton,

I received the election materials you sent sans my request and thought it appropriate I respond sans yours.

Since you took the time to use some of your foreign aid monies to have the materials printed and to send it via one of your underpaid (no $ 15.00 minimum in your camp) underlings to mail it, I thought it only fair I read and respond.

I must say, what I read was an incredibly well-written amalgam misrepresentations, fabrications, and deliberate deceptions designed to deceive the reader into thinking you mentally capable of leading the United States of America.

You lead an effective attack against your opponent, Mr. Trump by denigrating his indelicateness, his lack of political acumen and most importantly, to you at least, the beauty of his wife. You call him crass and vulgar for speaking his mind while you, in turn, live a fictional life where the truth is as fleeting as your youth.

What you do not do is prove to me that I can trust you enough even to allow you back in our White House, let alone the Oval Office.

Mr. Trump will be as different a president as were Reagan, Eisenhower and Washington, all men who led a nation with little or no political experience. They had a real vision, substantial followings and most importantly the will to stand against the establishment to make America Great.

You, Ms. Clinton, would be a president for a policy based on your predecessor’s failures and your own personal distorted reality. Your decisions would be centered on the demands of your foreign puppeteers. Your mistakes would be blamed on your enemies and if that didn’t work, on your employees, underlings child, and grandchildren.

I disagree with Mr. Trump’s assessment of you being “the Devil”. I refuse to give you that much talent. I think you are nothing more, nor less than a gold digging, political hack with a Fascist mentality. I believe you have sold your soul to the Devil who, as is fair, is going to collect when you lose the election, if not before.

Your history of treacheries is finally catching up with you. Hopefully, you will remain alive long enough to be arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced and sent to prison there to ponder the insanity of you.
