With everything going on in the world, why do we want someone who behaves like a child who is going to have a fit if they can’t have things their way? The fact that Mr Trump said that he would ‘sue’ if he doesn’t get the Republican presidential nomination is a child who needs a good smack on the back side and told that the world doesn’t run around them.
As a veteran, when I look at who is wanting to lead the armed forces, I look at what they have said before and what they are saying now. I have always been proud of the military, and at the same time I know that there are problems with it. One is Street gangs in the service. There was a report done in 2007 where the DOD was told that the problem was larger than they were willing to say.
That was 2007, there is proof that the same Street gangs are still in the system. We are talking about the major gangs (Bloods, Latin Kings, MS 13 and others). If a person is
elected to the President of the USA and can’t keep their mouth under control, we are in trouble.
Think about it when you listen to the news.
Didn’t we learn from the last century that the extreme talk of some can have very dangerous side effects? This isn’t a political stance, this is a moral stance. This is a reminder of what people running their mouths can cause.
I have been listening to the comments that Mr. Trump has been saying during his run for the Presidency and frankly it scares the daylights out of me. He has said that 50,000 ‘immigrants’ would have to go back. The thing is that this country was founded by ‘immigrants’. He has also said that the welfare problem is caused by ‘an anchor baby’ system for immigrants. – There are two things here that I need to point out, 1) people who are of Caucasian decent are ‘immigrants’ in a form and 2) closing the borders will not make this country better – it is called Isolationism.
We have been there before: at the end of World War 1, a defeated nation (Germany) was in chaos. There were riots in the streets and we ended up with an extremist that wanted to blame all the problems on a group of people. That person was Hitler, and he used people’s anger against another group to take control. Don’t believe me – ask Jerry Springer – his family had to leave Germany due to the fact that the Nuremberg race laws made things hard and they were being persecuted due to religion.
I can understand wanting to make this country great again, but we need to engage our brains and not fall for the anger speeches that are out there. Statements like
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the 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 bring crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people.”
It sounds a lot like: “Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.” (Hitler said this.)
There is a statement that I want to leave you with. It was said by Winston Churchill.
Riddle me this, Riddle me that, how are people suppose to survive?
The reason that I ask this is simple. There are those who feel that people can survive on almost nothing and should be happy. Most of the country is working hard to make it, sometimes living from paycheck to paycheck and struggling to make it.
There are some government agencies that feel that a person’s income should say how they live. That is fine if they are looking at the NET INCOME. Most of the organizations that claim to want to help people feel that the person who is in need of help they will look at their GROSS INCOME.
These people that are supposed to be willing to help us. The people that I speak of are of the Social Security Office, Housing Assistant People, State Agencies People. There are others as well. I am tired of fighting with them. The reason that I am tired of fighting is that every time I ask a question I get a different answer.
Here is an example of what I mean: A family of a husband a wife both are disabled. One is on SSI and the other goes out and gets a job that makes 15 dollars an hour. That person has to deal with the challenges of the job and gets a paycheck that they can take home after taxes and medical/ dental and other basic things are taken out of about 950.00 per every two weeks. Then they get told that because their GROSS Income is over $ 2000.00 per month the other person loses their benefits from Social Security including their medical. Then that person finds out that food assistance is no longer there for them, then after about 6 months of barely making it their rent goes up to over half their income. When they call the Housing people, it is due to their GROSS income.
This is driving those who can work into the ground. You look at what a person pays out of each check automatically and how can that be counted as income. How can people say that funds that never come into their house be used against them? I don’t understand.
I work hard, I suffer through things that I shouldn’t need to and then I come home and find I can’t have basic real food (McDonalds doesn’t count due to the fact that I don’t eat there) and have to suffer with the health issues that come with it.
Why are we suffering so? This country could be great. It should be great, but we need to stand up and help those who are having issues.
