Just Admit It!!!

Now, let it first be known that I try to stay out of politics.  I really do.  However, when I visit Dad at the nursing home 5 times a week, if a basketball (or baseball or football) game isn’t on that he likes, it’s usually the debates or the caucuses or the talk show specials about the candidates that’s on.  And, if it’s one of the 2nd group, the sound has to be up for him, so I AM going to listen (ie. can’t turn on my tablet and escape!).

So, I listen to the people talk.  So, I am going to do something I very seldom do:  give my political opinions.   Someone needs to mark this day on a calendar (It’s the 29th, so it’s very special anyway).   Hey, I just thought of something:  does that mean that most every presidential campaign is on a leap year?  Kinda ruins the event, don’t ya think?

Now, first off, this Kelly woman, the political-minded newscaster or whatever she is…I don’t like her.  Not so much because of what she says.  It’s because she is very loud, talks over people if SHE has something to say and, if she doesn’t agree with what you are saying, she TALKS OVER ‘YOU!  Rude and mouthy.  And, she pauses a lot…gets a bit lost, but wants to make sure she says … SOMETHING to stop whoever is talking.  Rant done.

Now, about President Obama – loaded questions/answers, I know.  However, I heard someone say recently (not exact quote): “The President is not evil; he is trying to make our nation like another nation.  He’s wrong, but not evil.”

That sums it up pretty much for me.  I don’t care for him.  I voted for him the first time around – not the second.  “Fooled me once” and all that.  He has not really done anything productive that I have seen.  I am sure there is something; I just don’t see it.  He is relatively weak, especially in relations with most other nations.  He may have a big picture, but it’s not shaping up as anyone particularly wants it over here.  However, let’s not forget that he couldn’t do much if it wasn’t for enough congressional support; they are helping him, people…please see that.

Okay, now, that’s old news; current news?  Well, I like Trump.  I am not saying he is the perfect candidate (I don’t think we have ever seen the most perfect candidate, yet).  But, he is telling us what we want to hear and, I believe, he means to try and do it all.  Big difference…not placating us…Lord no!  He is not placating at all; he merely sees how upset we are and is jumping on it.  He’s  not afraid because, end of day, he goes back to being a billionaire!

And what do I hear the other Republican candidates saying about him?  (not a quote)  “Trump is gaining support of the Democratic supporters because they KNOW he can’t beat Hillary!”  Really?!  I don’t think Hillary should even be running.  I don’t know if she is guilty of anything or not, but if not, she is not too bright about it all.  Do we really want that in our presidential chair?  Further, it has been said that Trump might get over-zealous and toss the “football”.  I see Hillary as one who would NEVER toss the football, even if it really needed tossing.  I am not for nuclear war; no one in their right mind is (guess that leaves the military in their left mind).  But, Trump would be a valid threat to those who wish us big harm (look at North Korea who is threatening us!).  Not saying to NUKE them, but I doubt they even think it is possible with this President and Hillary would not be any different.

Okay, I am running out of steam.  Tell you what, let me know in the comments what you think about this or any other political topic.  Don’t troll me or ogre me or giant me (get the idea?); simply state your case and let’s let people talk.

I am not always right.  In fact, the only time I think I am always right is about not always being right…think on that one.

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
