Trump Kids says Donald Trump is a great dad, but he is still a terrible candidate

“Our father, Donald J. Trump is a true visionary and a great mentor,” Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump said in the statement. “He is a brilliant negotiator with a proven track record of getting things done. Most importantly, he is an incredible dad and role model. He raised us to work hard and strive for excellence in all that we do.”

No one is questioning Donald Trump’s parenting style. Insults a war hero, tells a packed house and millions watching the personal phone number of another candidate and calls illegal immigrants “murderers and rapist”. Might be Father of the Year but will never be President of the United States.

Sandra Bland traffic stop…did she say too much?

Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

Would perfection have saved Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray or Sandra Bland?

Bland “was very combative,” DA Elton Mathis said. “It was not a model traffic stop … and it was not a model person that was stopped.”

By now you know the story of Sandra Bland. She was a 28 year old woman who moved to Texas to start a new job. She was pulled over by the police for a minor traffic violation. She was subsequently manhandled and arrested. The police say she committed suicide while in their custody. Her relatives contest this and a murder investigation is currently going on. I was reading an article about Bland and I was struck by the quote above from the DA. He said she was not a model person. What is a model person? Does model person mean complete compliance? What makes you a model person? Why is there always a need to demonize the victim even prior to all the facts being released? Perfection does not provide protection. Share your thoughts.

Black Lives Matter but do you just want someone to say it?

Talk is cheap and we know politicians will say anything to get elected. At the NetRoots convention a boisterous crowd in the audience tried to get Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders to declare Black Lives Matter, but they would not just say that O’Malley said Black Lives Matter, White Lives Matter and All Lives Matter and this enraged the crowd, but did they really think either of them would make a racial declaration? The Democrats really don’t think they have to do much or say much to get the black vote. They are not going to bend over backward seeking something they already think they have. Blacks came out in record numbers for President Obama. In 2008 we made history and in 2012 we did it again. There was a collective sense of pride, but 2016 is a totally different animal. Hillary Clinton (heir apparent), Bernie Sanders (radical socialist) and Martin O’Malley (Smiley). There are other Democrats but no one among them is going to create the Obama level of enthusiasm. So what are the choices on the other side: Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Rick Perry, Ben Carson, Chris Christie and a bunch of other names that don’t come to mind. Each voter has to make a choice and we have the next year to watch and listen to all the candidates and determine what candidate can do more than repeat a hashtag.
