Hater-in-Chief.
It is Already Working.
 

I recently got the above issue of Esquire with Donald Trump on the cover in the mail. The article inside is pretty spot on regarding what he is doing to the gullible people in this country and I have a personal experience to show it.
It is not a secret that this is a political year and I have recently been bombarded (carpet bombed???) on Facebook by all kinds of images either promoting the crazies in the GOP circus or disparaging the Democrats. I am writing this on the day after the GOP debate in South Carolina and the thing that I can’t understand is how the bully Trump, who was soundly booed for his behavior, is still leading in the polls there. Incredible.

Now I am all for adult debate on the issues but it seems there are people on the right who either send out ridiculous images or outright lies and present them as if they are uncontroverted facts. I recently saw one where there was an image of Hillary side by side with an image of a brown paper bag. The text attached said something along the lines of “Hillary…A Bag of Shit… Can You Tell the Difference?” How does one debate that? There are other times that falsehoods or misrepresentations are presented as fact and at least in that case you should be able to present your side of the story. However, in the current atmosphere where the flames of hatred are being fired up by the likes of Trump, Cruz, Rubio, et al, you need to watch out. I recently tried to, what I thought was merely provide the opposite opinion of things I thought were presented unfairly and I went to the trouble of researching and providing links to articles where I felt these things were being disproved. You would not believe the firestorm I provoked, however. I was called some pretty nasty things, summarily un-friended and then, when I tried to again do the adult thing and explain that what I was doing was debating the issues, I was then called insulting and profane names and accused of harassment.
This is the environment that is being provoked by this hateful man and, apparently he doesn’t even need to be elected, he is already having the effect he wants and it is all really to satisfy the egomaniacal, narcissistic carnival barker he is. IMHO, of course…


I'm Back!!!

Yes, it seems every time around election time I feel motivated to post something in here. I have a personal issue I am working on and hope to put it in here soon. I just wanted to check how image insertion looks so I will add a picture. It will probably show where I am going (or more accurately will be going).Talk to you soon.

The Latest - 2012 Edition


As usual, the posts in here are few and far between. Sorry about that.

We have just finished the 2012 election and, thank goodness, the GOP was not able to dupe the electorate.

I have a page I have been adding "stuff" to, 2012 Election - I'm Just Sayin'

Hopefully it won't be as long before I return...

It has been quite some time since I have visited here and a lot has happened. We are now starting up with the campaigning for the 2012 election and the Republicans are in "full attack" mode. Of course, they don't have an iota of a plan to govern this country, all they do is criticize Obama and lie about his accomplishments. I can go into this in much greater detail in the future but today I have something else to "discuss".

It was a while ago that I saw Mr. Ralph Nadir (misspelling deliberate; those of you with a good vocabulary will get my meaning...) talking about wanting other Democrats to campaign against Obama. Yeah, Ralph, that worked real well in 1980 with Kennedy and Carter, didn't it? This narcissistic egomaniac was, in my opinion, responsible for Al Gore losing Florida in 2000 and, as a result, our having to experience 8 years of Cheney and Bush (the order of them, again, deliberate...). Ralphie boy, you are already on minute 16. Go away...

And now, I hear other people like Bernie ("Colonel") Sanders of Vermont chiming in on this. Let the Republicans self-destruct, please. Don't help them.

More later...

I'm With Hillary...

Recently there was some commotion over Hillary Clinton's comments concerning the 2000 election. Well, FWIW, I agree completely.

I just happened to be in Jacksonville, Florida on business on election night 2000 and I was watching the results play out on TV. I agreed with Tim Russert that the state I was in at the time was crucial and, even though I couldn't vote (being a resident of California, which I was pretty sure was safe for the Democrats), I was rooting for where I was to go Democratic as well. And when they projected Florida going to Gore, I was whooping and hollering and planning how to celebrate with my friends when I returned home.

And then, to my dismay, I see the newscasters taking back their projection. I, of course, knew that Jeb was the governor of Florida and I thought to myself at the time, "Boy, I bet the phone lines are burning right about now between either Crawford, Texas (where I assumed W was) or Kennebunkport, Maine (where I assumed daddy was) and the Governor's residence in Florida. Probably both, actually...". At that point, I came to the realization that there was no way the Bushes were going to let Gore take the state their son ran. And we paid for it for the next 8 years.

Now, this may be a bit provocative, but I wonder... if Florida was not "stolen" in 2000, there might be around 3000 plus people still alive (including someone I knew) and a couple of buildings that I still miss (having grown up in NY and having seen them being built) might still be standing.

Hillary, you go girl!

Another long time...

I created this blog a long, long time ago, but have never really utilized it. I wanted to save the User ID I use, jimfromsd, so I grabbed it while it was still availble. It is still hanging in there, so perhaps I may start posting things sometime soon. I wasn't even sure if it was still active, but I checked and, whaddya know, it still is. This is just to add something and refresh myself with the procedure. Talk to you soon (hopefully...)

It's been a while...

... and many things have happened. I had plans to go NY for a reunion but unfortunately a close personal friend of mine passed away and I had to cancel my trip. I have a lot of stress in my life right now and this was an unwelcome addition. I am also in the process of selling my house and moving. Hopefully when this occurs, my life will simplify a little and I can devote the time I want to here. Not that anybody is really paying attention (yet...???) but someday...

Just a quick note

I am sorry that I have not been able to keep up with this, but my life has been pretty hectic lately. Hopefully I will clear things up in the next few weeks and I will be able to maintain this on a much more frequent basis (not that anybody really cares yet...) I hope to join in this community sometime in the future, though.
