Donald Trump is just profane and the media loves it

It is interesting listening to the media talk about Donald Trump spewing profanities at his  rally last night. Some are saying he has changed the dialogue but he has actually gone beyond the pale. It is one thing to say you are not politically correct, but it is another thing to be profane. If President Obama had dropped this word while campaigning in 2008 or 2012 he would have been toast but the press want to wink and smile and just say that is Donald being Donald, but is this the kind of language that is now deemed acceptable on the trail. Will other candidates adopt this jargon and do like Donald and say I didn’t say it I’m just repeating it. We can’t stop Trump from saying whatever but the media need to stop trying to make what he says acceptable or try to categorize it as normal political talk.

Donald Trump calls Ted Cruz a “Pussy”…is this man fit to be the president?


Is this guy worthy of the Oval Office? Is this kind of vulgarity appropriate for the campaign trail? Share your thoughts.

Will the Clintons ever learn you can’t bully people into voting for you?

In the 2008 campaign Bill Clinton insulted black people when he said in South Carolina that the Barack Obama campaign was a fairy tale. He was angry because black people were jumping on the Obama bandwagon. Fast forward to 2016 and this year Hillary Clinton is running as a woman candidate. See in 2008 she was all about the experience, but this time she is all about the females and she wants all the women to jump on her bandwagon and the young women are simply not doing it. Getting your surrogates to tell women there is a “special place in hell” for women who do not support other women or saying they are following the boys because the boys are supporting Bernie is not the road to victory. The Clintons have been in politics for years and they should have learned a long time ago that insulting voters is not endearing. Bernie Sanders is not the real problem. The fact is he should not be true competition but he is and it is up to the Clintons to figure out a pathway to victory and insults is not the way.

Is Cam Newton the new face of the NFL?


Super Bowl week we saw Cam Newton flash his million dollar smile. He was voted the NFL MVP Saturday night, and his Carolina Panthers had a brilliant season. He was sitting on top of the world but after being defeated in the Super Bowl his world crumbled. He did his post game press conference with a chip on his shoulder. Defeat is never easy or welcome, but there are winners and losers, and people have got to learn how to accept defeat. Some NFL commentators tried to excuse his behavior. They said he left before he said the wrong thing, but Newton is a grown man and he is capable of not spewing out anything that might torpedo his career. If Newton wants to be the face of the NFL he is going to have to develop a thicker skin. Peyton Manning has won the Super Bowl, and he has also experienced the agony of defeat, but he stood at the podium and answered the hard questions. If Newton is going to be the face he is going to have to learn how to do that too.

I Do Not Feel the Bern and I Can’t Vote for Him

I am not a fan of Bernie Sanders fan. When I see him I think of the old men sitting in the orchestra pit of the original Muppets series complaining about everything. I just can’t see Sanders as the president. It is interesting that most of us regular people are forced to retire at 65, 70 if you need to, but this guy is asking for our vote and he will be 75 on Inauguration Day. The age issue is one, but the lack of foreign policy experience is also another problem. When he is questioned about it he says he voted against the Iraq war. OK and? The world is bigger than that and he stops there. I just don’t see it. Share your thoughts.

Trayvon Martin would have been 21 today and people are still taking shots at him

From Twitter-Ben ShapiroVerified account ‏@benshapiro
Trayvon Martin would have turned 21 today if he hadn’t taken a man’s head and beaten it on the pavement before being shot.

Earlier this morning I saw that Trayvon Martin was trending on Twitter. Today would have been his 21st birthday. Later I saw the tweet above and I wondered why would someone feel the need to take a shot at a dead man. Was his intent to be cute, snarky or witty. Would his followers be amused or repulsed. I fall into the latter. At some point the battle should end and I would venture to say death should be the end, but in the land of Twitter there are no rules and evidently there is no compassion.
