Mocking Disabled, Touting Voodoo Economics 3.0, Failing Geography and 911 Facts, Trump and GOP candidates Lack Qualifications for President
Apparently Mr. Trump mocked a disabled reporter at a recent campaign event. Before that he encouraged white guys who beat up a black protester at another rally. I am wondering if they will all be wearing brown shirts or white robes at the next event. Whites only separatists are as ignorant as ISIS separatists in this inescapably multi-cultural world. And no, Muslims in New Jersey did NOT cheer when 911 occurred.
It isn't just Trump. If it was, this would easily be solved – just dump him. But the rest of the GOP candidates do the same thing but only in dog whistles and code words. The current Republican presidential candidates don’t convey actual facts and truth about how Obama turned around the worst economy in 70 years without their help. They don’t talk about their party vowed to sabotage him before he had a chance to have his first cup of coffee in the oval office. They put our economy on a reef and didn’t even want to help the new Captain fix it.
It goes way beyond these jokes of candidates, who may have a lot of money but lack the geography skills of a 5th grader. They are not a decent role model to be an American President.
If only it were presidential candidates who spoke so disrespectfully. I see this conduct in comments ALL the time - people mocking those of a different color or religion or sex. I see experts mocked by people who can’t even spell. It’s bizarre.
You can mock me because I am a progressive. But you don’t have the right to mock someone who has had a disabling disease -- or is a woman wanting equal pay for equal work, or a young black man filled with bullet holes, or a Muslim family fleeing barrel bombs and thugs.
(Global) American values rest on treating people with (1) RESPECT. Treat others the way you want to be treated. It’s always worked for me in the 50 plus countries that I have worked in.
It’s a world of many religions and colors. Get over it thinking everyone has to confirm to your narrow world view. Not everyone eats meat and potatoes and not everybody goes to church on Sunday. That mentality led to Catholics shooting protestants (remember Northern Ireland?), and Christians burning innocent people they deemed witches and killing Muslims in the Crusades. It led to ISIS killing fellow Muslims. ISIS is only the latest version of intolerance; but they don’t have a monopoly on it. All reflect the same extremist intolerance behind the world’s violence today.
In this presidential campaign we have witnessed presidential candidates leading in the polls with zero political experience look lost trying to figure out one country from another. They speak of Christian values while touting their opposition to medical care for the poor. They preach the opposite of what Jesus spoke of in the bible I read. Instead of being the Good Samarian helping the injured man in the ditch, they are too busy hurrying by saying “I’ll pray for you” while they take another bag full of special deals to the 1% get special deals the average American lying in the ditch doesn’t.
Disrespect is all around us. The Donald just does it louder and without codes like his equally disrespectful co-candidates. They hope their talking points covers up the fact that none of them have laid out a vision beyond more voodoo economics guaranteed to yield more trillion dollar deficits.
Why anyone would consider them serious candidates is beyond stupid. Having negotiated globally and predicted 911 on TV during the first Gulf War, I haven’t seen them come close to being honest and truthful with the American public about our course ahead. Hell, I have a better plan than they do. Anyone thinking of voting for them really needs to get out of town and see the world because they have no clue! Lol
When candidates for president start showing ALL groups respect and present a real global strategy for American success, then we can consider them something more than just Class C Clowns. Even then, they still need more than voodoo economics to offer. We have seen that play before. It gave us this $17 Trillion debt…
