Feeling Down on America

The urge to write struck me this evening.  I’m down on America and unlike half of the population it isn’t just due to Donald Trump.  Instead it is a number of things I’ve experienced and read since I came back into the country only six short days ago.

The thought started right when I got off the plane from Japan and the first person to greet us travelers was an immigration guy barking at us to get into the proper lines.  Now given the current climate you might expect that many Trump supporters would bark at foreigners but this particular guy was a Chinese American and barked at us with an accent.  I literally said out loud “Welcome to America” as I passed him.

Leaving the Democratic Party

On January 4th I made the decision to officially leave the Democratic Party.  Although individual votes no longer count for much due to gerrymandering, the Electoral College, political tribal mentality – thus blue states and red states – and regardless of what a few diehard patriots may say, this was a rather important decision for me.

Trump, failings of the left and the news

Half of the United States remains in shock from the election of Donald Trump.  Their only hope to awake from the nightmare was dashed yesterday with his confirmation by the electoral college.  That is all she wrote liberals, welcome to the next four years.

The liberals wonder how half of their countrymen could be so stupid?  In an effort to understand they might turn on Fox News, or for the younger generation that get their news from social media, click on The Blaze and share a video from Tomi Lahren.  For those who have been fortunate enough to never see either Fox or Tomi let me sum them up for you.  You have beautiful women who are perpetually angry bitching about the liberals.  You also have a few men as supplements to the attractive women who are also very angry and complain about liberals.  It is all prom queens and quarterbacks.

Standing Rock

It has been another very long spell without a post on this site.  One would think I’d be writing about the victory of Donald Trump at the least but no, I haven’t been motivated to do that.

This morning however the incidents at Standing Rock have motivated me.  Donald Trump will be just another footnote in the history of the USA but I feel that the incidents at Standing Rock are more important than even the election of the demagogue Trump.  Republicans and Democrats will continue to fight each other and try to reverse gains the others have made each election cycle but the Native Americans have had to fight their “white man” oppressors ever since America was still a British colony.
