Another “Donation” to the NRA

As many of you know, I occasionally come across articles, comments, news items, etc. in my daily readings that prompt me to write a post. The following Letter to the Editor was published in our local newspaper and most definitely fits the parameters. It’s in response to the most recent school shooting in Texas.

Do you think the parents of the dead Santa Fe children are proud to have donated their kid’s lives for the good of the NRA? Will they get a medal or a plaque to commemorate their child’s service? Will they stand proud with their hands over their hearts knowing that their child died so that Dana Loesch [spokesperson for the National Rifle Association] can go pump bullets through an AR-15 any darn time she feels like it?

If all congress members and Donald were required to walk through schools where mass shootings have just taken place, to see first hand the carnage and bullet riddled bodies, would they say that this was an acceptable amount of human sacrifice on the shrine of NRA privilege?

Too bad Donald didn’t “do everything in (his) power” before they got dead. Too bad his speech is all just words and he still won’t do a single thing in his power, even as he steps over their blood-spattered bodies on the way to his next campaign rally.

TOTUS

I really don’t have time to be writing posts as our move is approaching very fast — but I simply CANNOT understand how anyone can support the current Tweeter Of The United States!

Instead of tweeting personal attacks on his phone, accusing the news media of “Fake News,” golfing every weekend, and/or holding ego-boosting rallies, he should be running this country! And this goes much further than signing documents, meeting with various dignitaries (at his golf courses, no less), and having phone conversations with individuals from other countries. OR … sitting at a table while his lackeys go around the room feeding his ego.

I am totally and completely amazed that people allow this clown to continue his circus. I know our ruling party has its drawbacks, but this is beyond comprehension!

Yes, I’ve heard there could be skullduggery below the surface, i.e., “promoting” Pence (which in itself is a disaster), but if this is the case, I have to ask … how much longer must we put up with this whining, self-absorbed, lying “leader”?

Name Your Sources, Trump

Letter to the Editor published in today’s local newspaper:

President Trump said that all information put out by the press should have a named source attached to it. Why doesn’t he show the way by naming the sources of his “information?”

  • Who counted the votes for him and told him that he won the popular vote in November?
  • Who told him that most undocumented Mexicans were “bad hombres?”
  • Where does he get his information about Muslims?
  • Who told him that torturing suspects is ethical and really works?

When asked why he incorrectly claimed that his Electoral College victory was the largest in modern history, he simply said “Someone told me.”

I think sources are important and, if Trump thinks so too, he should show us how it’s done.

Baptism By Fire

Does ANYONE think our Fearless Orange Leader will follow these suggestions?

Trump is Off to a Rough Start — Here’s What Can Make His Job Easier

Love the opening line:

Donald Trump campaigned for the presidency as a billionaire businessman who would bring private-sector expertise to Washington. But as he quickly discovered, it is much harder running the federal government than a family enterprise.

P.S. Will you be watching (or did you watch) tRump’s address to joint session of Congress? Thoughts?
