398 Days until Election Day…why does it feel like Election Day is tomorrow?

We will elect a new president in November of 2016, but judging by the media obsession one would think that election day is next month not over a year from now. Somewhere along the way politics turned into entertainment and entertainment populates the media on a 24/7 basis. Candidates make the rounds from state fairs to late night television all in search of voters. They will do stand up, sing-a-longs, baby kissing…you name it nothing is off limits, but is the way we want to select the most powerful leader on earth? Share your thoughts.

Where is all this FREE stuff black people are getting?

Jeb Bush was questioned by a white audience member about the lack of black people at his meeting last night. Bush said “our message is one of hope and aspiration. It isn’t one of division and get in line and we’ll take care of you with free stuff.” Where is this free stuff? I never got any of it nor was I looking for it. I come from a family of hard workers who never looked for government handouts and i am sick of candidates pandering to the base. It’s statements like this that keep blacks away from the GOP not their desire for free stuff.

Do you stand with Ahmed?

By now you have probably heard about the 14 year old Muslim boy Ahmed who built a clock and took it to school. He was arrested for his efforts. When I first heard about the situation I was appalled, but that was prior to seeing the clock. The clock looked like a bomb and it should have been investigated. We live in a dangerous society and we have to be cautious and sometimes innocent people will be caught up. Could it have been handle better? probably, but Ahmed is a hero now and that is also a little disturbing. Is he a victim or a victor? Judging from the offer of a Twitter internship, a shout out from the creator of Facebook and an invite to the White House I would say he is the victor.

Donald Trump offers no apologies and that’s why people like him

Every time Donald Trump says something wrong or does not correct something said that is wrong he takes a hit from the media. His poll numbers go up but the media sits in judgment predicting his downfall, but it hasn’t happened yet and one has to wonder will it every happen? He has insulted the Mexicans, John McCain, Megyn Kelley, Carly Fiorina, Jeb Bush’s wife and President Barack Obama and he has never apologized. He is a man in own opinion who is never wrong and his followers love him. As they say if it “ain’t broke don’t fix it” and this is working for him so accept the fact that apology is not in his dictionary neither is humility.

Donald Trump is still a Birther

Last night Donald Trump held a townhall meeting. Someone in the crowd said President Obama was a Muslim. Trump did not correct the potential voter, but why would he? Trump is a birther and apparently some of his followers are too. Trump will get a little heat from the media but that’s it. He won’t correct or apologize because that is not his brand. On to the next faux outrage.

Racial Slur no excuse for brutal hit on referee

By now you have seen the two high school students brutal hit on a referee. There is no excuse for this kind of barbaric behavior, but that does not mean on has not been given. The boys are claiming the referee used racial slurs in the course of the game. So is this a justifiable response? No it isn’t. If the referee did use racial slurs he should have been reported not knocked out. Share your thoughts.
