It’s been a long time since I posted. I hope that you all have not forgotten about me. I’ve been sitting back watching. From Obama’s last 4 years to Trumps first 4 months, it’s been quite a ride. But now it’s starting to get bumpy. I figured I had better start tossing out some food for thought again. This seems as good a time as any when you consider that it seems we are on borrowed time.
With all of that said, I would kindly suggest that Donald Trump step down as President of the United States of America. I would kindly submit the same as a request.
I would first say that Americans who are concerned about their own privacy have nothing to be concerned about regarding the Legal Surveillance of Donald Trump and his team. If this is being conducted; there is a reason for it. Someone, somewhere has been doing wrong against this country that everyone claims to love, and the authorities are attempting to follow up on it.
Before I go on, let me throw a little logic into the mix. Barack Obama as outgoing President, has no concerns about Donald Trump. As evidenced by the many photos we have seen of Obama finally getting a chance to TRY and relax in Hawaii after so many years of resistance. Quite honestly, I think he was far too concerned with getting the hell out of Washington to care what Trump was doing. Think about it for a while before you read on. I will wait.
Now… if the Intelligence collection was lawful, and Sean Spicer just admitted that it was in his last news conference, then there is a reason for it. This is not some “Fake News” conspiracy theory. This is a legal investigation. And I have seen my share of Presidents go through this. Only one did not survive. That was Richard Nixon. He did not survive the investigation because he was wrong. And he acted like a man, and resigned.
To see Donald Trump Tweeting, (does he actually do anything Presidential, or is this just more reality TV? With our lives?), all of this “Fake News, conspiracy, Obama is sick” crap is actually making me sick. And I mean physically sick! Nausea, headaches, insomnia. For the first time in my life, I really don’t feel comfortable with the future. And this is coming from a guy who has had to face the uncertainty of the criminal justice system and prison! If you want to know fear, it starts right there. Until now.
This Trump guy is running another reality show and he is improvising with our safety, our money, our health care, or legacy (the environment), or simply, our lives. He has no idea what he is doing and is surrounded by people with just as little experience and with their own full agenda. White Nationalism being one of them. That one is pretty important to me as a black male watching a lot of younger black males try to grow up behind me. But that’s not the only one that concerns me.
Where do I start? A Muslim travel ban? Really? But let’s take Iraq out of it because we do get some oil imports from them right? No, that’s not the reason at all. So forget that. Let’s talk about Muslims. Their religion is Islam. So you are banning them on the basis of religion, correct? (Rhetorical). Has anyone explained to this man that Holy Wars never end? Has Donald Trump called it that? No. But in so many words. All of this talk about people “pouring” in and being dangerous. You mean like when black people move into your neighborhood Donald? No one is “pouring” into America like so much foul water. And for those of you that are robots to the politics of fear, please educate yourselves. If you need help, please contact me and I will direct you to the resources you need to learn more.
Now of this “Fake News” thing, we have a real problem. The first problem is that there is a lot of fake news out there. On that, Donald Trump and I agree. The second problem is that Donald Trump can’t tell me what’s fake and what’s not. He has neither the right, nor the power to define my reality. We can all be assured that he will try in as Fascist a way as possible. But he cannot and will not be allowed to do that in my house! I would suggest to everyone else to do the same. Just as you don’t take Obama’s word for it, or Fox’ word for it or even mine; DO YOUR RESEARCH! Find your own facts.
The government, Universities, and even outlets outside the country keep very accurate records of things you can use to determine on your own, what is true and what is false. Then you can decide what is fake and what isn’t. Then you can decide what’s truly important to you and make that clear to your local representatives. These are the people that can keep Donald Trump in check. Or choose to put someone who knows what they are doing in his place. And that may very well be the best thing for the country.
Beyond all the tough guy talk and the dominating discussions, there is a world out there that we have to be a part of. It demands diplomacy, patience, intelligence and, a deep love of people. I have yet to see any of those things from this President. No new jobs, except Border Patrol and ICE. The coming roll back for LGBT rights. I don’t think I am being paranoid if I say that womens’ and civil rights will probably be next. Deregulation of the banks. Great. Will we survive that again? Not likely. Ending the moratorium on mountain stripping for coal? Oh, there’s a few million jobs for all the unemployed in this country. Better get up there and see those mountains before West Virginia becomes a plains state.
And apparently no desire to attempt to become anyone but a laughing stock for the world and secret lover to Vladimir Putin.
That’s what we’ve go so far. There’s more and more to come. But we will talk about all of that later.
Until next time,
