The more he talks the scarier he gets


good read, fully agree

Now that the Republican Party has officially nominated a bigoted, xenophobic, thin-skinned narcissist, it is imperative that America gives this candidate a full vetting. I have said multiple times that Donald Trump’s lack of veracity as a candidate is in his history and it is not hard to find.

He has made his fortune by exploiting people for money. His sales skills have allowed him to get his money, but he has often left others high and dry through multiple bankruptcies, failed businesses and getting out of deals before they went south. The number of lawsuits that he has  settled are significant as a result as well as the line of unpaid contractors.

The three Trump University class action lawsuits are a microcosm of why he is a poor candidate. He is charged with alleged misrepresentation and aggressive marketing to strong arm money from students and seminar attendees.

But, what…

MADNESS

 

I am worrying

I am not an American so maybe I should not say what I want to say but hey, you know me, fat chance. I might hit some nerves, I might lose readers but I am worrying

Through the years have gathered many contacts from the USA, many of them I consider friends, a few I even consider good or close friends without ever having laid eye on them, they cover both sides of the political arena, come from all walks of life, have all kinds of religions (or a chosen lack thereof) and all colors of the rainbow (well, I might be exaggerating here a bit)

I also see what is happening in the world and in the USA, part of that I discussed in my last blog but there is something that is worrying me much more than that

trump and the current state of the Republican Party. As you might know I am socialist, I should cheer seeing this going on in the GOP but I am not, there is no day without night, no yin without a yang, no left without a right. It is the only way to have all people in a nation covered as having a representative in the government. Sadly the current GOP is not that voice.

The current GOP is divided and dividing. They have a muppet as Speaker, a denier as presumptive vice President and then there is Trump PLEASE don’t call him orange, that is an insult to us Dutch especially when said about someone with a German heritage (No not war related, soccer)

However, war related…. are y’all stupid? Haven’t they thought you about WWII in school? Have you seen what is happening around that NRC? I have seen media of people there with flags baring a Swastika… ARE YOU INSANE?? Mr trump wants “special ID” for muslims in America

He wants to build a wall? He wants mexico to pay for it?

He calls Clinton crooked, I will not judge on that. Some say this some say that, she is not prosecuted.Trump however is another story himself. He wants to make American Great again but failed 4 times to make a business great, he wants to bring jobs back but outsources them himself. He talks about lack of integrity from his opponents but uses Music that is already known not allowed to be used. Sung by an artist that is everything the GOP hates. Melania I can forgive, she is simply not cut out for this kind of pressure but mr “You are fired” ? … sad…. so sad

When GOP members protested that their votes simply got changed they where ignored. different voices simply got smothered, former presidential hopefuls got booed. One of his advisers even suggested Clinton should be executed for treason, repeatedly. Haven’t you learned from ISIS and NICE? or is that… meh… France

http://www.thelocal.fr/20160720/nearly-half-of-nice-attack-victims-were-foreigners

One “Leader” from ISIS said “attack them on their Holiday” and there was one nutcase that said….. sure.

The French foreign ministry said on Tuesday that victims came from 19 countries, Algeria, Germany, Armenia, Belgium, Brazil, Estonia, the United States, Georgia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Morocco, Poland, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey and Ukraine

One nutcase….. and you know by now…. nut cases aplenty in the USA. The danger does not come from outside but from inside and I am 100% sure that if trump becomes President running a GOP the way it is now……… the shit WILL hit the fan.

You thought minorities where mad now? It will be nothing compared to what will unfold both nationally is internationally. All the progress that has been made will disappear as snow in the sun. Relations with the Middle East will go to an all time low, many allies will be very cautious when help is asked, radical Islam will grow (Drumpf is the perfect demon for them) Troops will be sent, Soldiers will die. that WILL happen, I guarantee.

However at home you alienated countless minorities. Black people, Muslims, The LGBT community and their allies, Latinos and sensible smart woman. Now you have to deal with a few idiots from within those communities but if Trump and the GOP get their way that will be considered (and more important feels as) oppression, single idiots become angry mobs, angry mobs become an angry majority as these groups will join forces. You might have a new civil war on your hands with trump

So call me over reactive, rambling, incoherent, ignorant or whatever you like, I only hope I never have to type “I told you so”

I am worrying

“Onward Christian Soldiers?”


A person that is not white only has to point his finger to police and he get’s shot and the social media is quick to say “it must be his own fault” yet I didn’t see ONE THING about this, not on social media and neither in the main stram media (perhaps in the US but not here unlike any fart made by someone from the BLM movement)

Stop the hate

In Saner Thought

After the horrible and deadly attack on the police in Dallas and then on the police in Baton Rouge there has been a wealth of accusations by some on the Right mostly those without a brain, that all that was made possible by the #Black Lives Matter movement….and some have even stated that there is a hatred and a desire to kill all police….

Usually it is the same people that hate anyone with a brown skin….but make sure to note that they are not racists……blog after blog have tried to convince everyone who will try and read their crap that this is systematic of the black mentality….But I cannot blame them for I realize that they are incapable of having more than one thought at a time….much less writing about something else.

But have any of these “well informed” morons mentioned this incident? Or these people?


Nine people federal…

Melania Trump’s speech appears to have been plagiarized from a Michelle Obama speech (seriously)


You want her to become your First Lady America?

While pundits appeared mildly surprised at Melania Trump’s not-as-bad-as-we-were-expecting speech, tucked in as it was amongst the rantings and raving of D-listers and has-beens, journalist Jarrett Hillnoticed a striking similarity to another well-known speech—one delivered by Michelle Obama at the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

Why Melania Trump’s plagiarized speech should be fatal to Donald Trump’s campaign

Melania Trump’s stunning plagiarism at the Republican National Convention should by all rights be fatal to her husband’s campaign for president, not merely because she plagiarized but because of who she plagiarized from. Melania, who claimed beforehand that she wrote her speech “with as little help as possible,” stole…

Yesterday I was tagged in a post by an old high school friend, asking me and a few others a very public, direct question about white privilege and racism.  I feel compelled not only to publish his query but also my response to it, as it may be a helpful discourse for more than just a handful of folks on Facebook.

Here’s his post:

“To all of my Black or mixed race FB friends, I must profess a blissful ignorance of this “White Privilege” of which I’m apparently guilty of possessing. By not being able to fully put myself in the shoes of someone from a background/race/religion/gender/ nationality/body type that differs from my own makes me part of the problem, according to what I’m now hearing. Despite my treating everyone with respect and humor my entire life (as far as I know), I’m somehow complicit in the misfortune…

White Girl In a Black World


Racism is found everywhere, only if we can and dare to look at ourselves and acknowledge where we ourselves went wrong we can help healing this world. Racism, beat it starting within your own heart

A Buick in the Land of Lexus

thumb

I grew up white in a black world, and my childhood was rife with turmoil.

I was an outcast, taunted and beat up. I was vilified because I dared to love the black boy upstairs. By the time I was 11, white people called me “nigger lover” and black people ostracized me.

I belonged nowhere.

We were together for years – until that one day in junior high school. White boys chased us down deserted train tracks as my screams for help echoed sharply off the metal rails. They beat on his arms with a crow bar, until one broke.

We were never together again.

We have kept track of each other our whole lives. The scar tissue around our hearts preserves a wary distance between us.

Still, I dream of being reunited with him someday.

The great love of my life before I got married was a dark brown man I…
