Time to stop laughing at Donald Trump, and start taking him seriously

dawn of brain dead
Donald Trump is a legitimate candidate and this kind of headline might evoke mocking and laughter, but the fact is he won New Hampshire. At some point is he going to be unstoppable and he just might be the GOP nominee. Nobody will be laughing then.

Donald Trump thanks his supporters MSNBC “Morning Joe”

Morning Joe has provided an unfettered platform for Donald Trump. He has been allowed to appear on their show via telephone more than any other GOP candidate. they ask him an initial question then it is open mike for The Donald. Last week Joe launched into the Marco Rubio take down, and Chris Christie picked up the baton and destroyed Rubio at the debate. Christie looked like the big bully picking on Rubio, but Trump just stood their and watched Christie take care of his assignment. Things worked out well for Trump and this morning Trump thanked Joe and Mika for their support. They attempted to clarify what Trump meant but he actually said what he meant. They actively supported him and that is not what a “news” show should be doing, but that is what they did. So a thank you was more than appropriate it was well deserved. Share your thoughts.

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

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.

Have we become a nation of sore losers?

Last week I watched an episode of Bring It on Lifetime. It is a show highlighting cheer/dance competition. The competition is fierce and every episode features a competition and a 1st and 2nd place team is crowned. The other week a team won the 2nd place trophy but the leader could not accept it. She told her girls they were winners and she would not accept the second place trophy. She hurled the trophy across the room and it shattered. I remember saying out loud “what are we teaching our children?” Ted Cruz won Monday night and seemingly that was accepted as fact that night, but today 2 days later he is accused of cheating by Mr. Second Place, Donald Trump. Sure Dr. Ben Carson has accused the Cruz campaign of playing a little fast and loose with the truth, and they have apologized for that, but Carson is not questioning the legitimacy of the process. There are winners and losers in any competition and people need to not only learn to be a good winner but also a good loser.
