Ben Carson says Poverty is a State of Mind?

People say dumb things, and Ben Carson says dumb things often. The other day he said poverty is a state of mind. So this means that with the right mind set people can pull themselves out of poverty. Sadly this is simply not true, Contrary to Carson’s point of view most people living in poverty would prefer not to be. There are millions of Americans working everyday for minimum wages and simply unable to get out of poverty. They are not driving luxury cars to the local grocery store picking up ribeye steaks and large costal shrimp. Carson grew up in poverty but over the years he has romanticized the story and his mother is the hero. Sure she might have been phenomenal but to say if everyone had a mother like his there would be no poverty is ridiculous. There are millions of encouraging, inspiring mothers living in poverty who might not ever get out of it but they are doing the best they can and they should be celebrated not accused of having the right mindset.

Donald Trump adds insult to injury by calling James Comey names


Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. Comey found out via television, and he initially thought it was joke, but aides pulled him to the side and let him know it was true. People at McDonald’s are afforded a more dignified exit, but this is President Trump, a new kind of president. Today, in typical bully fashion he called Comey a showboater and grandstander. Comey has stayed silent and showed the country what dignified public servant looks like.

Hillary is Back looking good, but the Democrats need to run in the opposite direction

Last night Hillary Clinton appeared with a sharp new hairdo and a black leather pantsuit. She has turned the page and that page does not seem to include the mommy pantsuits. She was speaking out against Trump policies and she has a right to speak, but we can not let her start her relevancy tour. While we are glad to see her she can not be the standard bearer of the future. The Democrats need new leadership for a new era. Last week I heard pundits asking was Joe Biden the candidate of the future. By 2020 Biden will be close to 80. There have got to be some leaders somewhere under the age of 65, and the Democrats need to find them or we might be looking at a lost White House in 2020.

A Polarized Nation…what can we do about it?

Why would Donna Brazile ruin her reputation for Hillary Clinton?

Donna Brazile finally admitted that she forwarded debate questions to Hillary Clinton. She had been accused of this during the summer but she made her admission yesterday. The question is why? Why would you give up your good reputation by doing something this stupid. Hillary Clinton has moved on but Brazile’s reputation is damaged. America believes in comebacks and hopefully brazile will get one.

Donald Trump is a dangerous, reckless man

Donald Trump embraced the birther conspiracy and rode it into the White House. He only abandoned it or stopped talking about it when it no longer served his diabolical purpose. Many people thought that when he actually assumed office he would develop a presidential restraint, but we can see that is not happening. Last Tuesday night we saw a glimpse of a real president when he addressed a joint session of Congress and he some saw this as a real turning point but the change was short-lived. Over the weekend he returned to the real Donald…the reality tv Donald. He is the say anything Donald including accusing former President Obama of approving wiretapping at Trump Tower. He said this during one of his Twitter Fits over the weekend. He has nothing to back up his claims other than articles written by his conspiracy theorists pals. It is painful to see his minions come on camera and attempt to defend the indefensible. They are calling for an investigation. An investigation of what? The media is making an effort to hold their feet to the fire as they continue defense of the indefensible. President Obama never really called Trump a liar but now is the time. When you are in a street fight it comes a time that you have to put the rules on the shelve and fight fist for fist. Trump has to be stopped. He is the president but it is time to call a lie a lie and this is not a case of “alternative facts” this is simply straight up lying.

What did the Democrats learn from the Tea Party?

Barack Obama was elected president in 2008 and he took office in 2009. The Republicans were upset and out of anger and frustrations a group splintered from the traditional Republican party. That group became the Tea Party. They carried their flags wore their funny hats and constantly protested. The Democrats initially dismissed them and the president even said they were a part of “silly season”. The Republicans thought they could control them, but the Tea Party had their own agenda, and they were willing to do anything to make it happen.
In 2010 they started supporting candidates that supported their mission and a lot of the traditional GOP stalwarts found themselves on the outside looking in. The Tea Party was against President Obama and anything he endorsed, touched or sanctioned they viewed as poison. As I watched them I could not believe they could sustain this level of zeal, but they did and they elected people to government who had a mission not just to shake up things, but to tear it up if necessary.
Their persistence ultimately gave us President Trump. Now we are starting to see Trump dismiss disgruntled Democrats to his detriment. President Obama was elected twice, but he lost the House and the Senate and the Republicans and the Tea Party did all they could to hogtie his agenda. This is the kind of attitude that the Democrats must adopt if they expect to start the change in 2018. They have to stay agitated, aggravated, and motivated. They are being called sore losers, but in loss one can learn how to win. The Democrats have to have the resolve of the Tea Party and the Democrats will rise again. Hopefully, in 2018.

Watching Sunday’s debate was like swimming in the sewer

Watching the debate Sunday night was like taking a dip in the sewer. After watching it I could not sleep so I for one am done. I know that I am voting for Hillary Clinton so there is no benefit in watching this debate debacle. I don’t need to see a parade of “other women”. Since the Tiger Woods situation there has been an elevation of the other women. They have been portrayed a victims when they were really participants. These women like the Clinton women knew this man had a wife so they made a decision to have an affair with a married man, and Donald Trump attempted to smear Hillary Clinton for being on the attack mode toward women who sought to destroy her marriage. Really? No,this is too much for me and I like to swim in clean water.

Barack Obama’s “Otherness”?


Alex Castellanos talked about the President’s otherness on Meet the Press this morning. What does otherness mean? Why is the first and likely the only black president we will ever see constantly asked to defend his right to the presidency? People we are almost 8 years in and people are still challenging the legitimacy of his tenure. Share your thoughts.

What does Donald Trump mean when he says Hillary Clinton does not look presidential?

Donald Trump is constantly saying Hillary Clinton does not have the “stamina” to be president. Another thing he loves to say is “she doesn’t look presidential”. What do you think he means by this? Is it because she is a woman? Share your thoughts.
