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 Clinton needs to move on

Yesterday, I listened to Hillary Clinton say if the election had been held on October 27th she would have been elected president. This is flawed logic from a flawed candidate. She lost. No team wins a game just because they have a half time lead. The game is only half way over. Clinton is clinging to whys that make her comfortable with the loss. She never had a message that stuck. She simply discredited her opponent and that simply was not enough. She failed to visit the states she should have won. She just simply refuses to accept the facts. This does not negate the Russian interference, but Clinton needs to move on and let us do the same.

Fix My Life Ivanla Vanzant calls guest a “bitch” and she tries to justify it

OWN Fix My Life started its new season by profiling RB singer Keisha Cole’s sister Neffie and her husband. Their troubled marriage was put under the microscope. Early on Vanzant sympathized with the husband and she seemed to hone in on Neffie’s faults. She went step too far when she called Neffie a bitch. She justified using the vile term by saying Neffie’s actions dictated the use of the word. Later Vanzant uttered a half-hearted apology but it fell flat. If you promote yourself as the life fixer you need to work on how you talk to a guest, and know that you never call an invited a guest a bitch.

Does Truth Still Exist?

From the Woodlawn Villager
By Joni L. Reynolds
Back in the good ole days the truth was not a subjective concept. It was bold and emphatic and you had to agree with it. Black was Black. Up was up, and down was down, but those days are gone. The truth has become a subjective concept subject to individual interpretation. I can remember watching Oprah and her saying the guest was “speaking her own truth”. What is her truth? Isn’t it just truth? We now live in the land where everyone has their own truth. Absolutes are challenged and we see this everywhere especially in our politics. We have been introduced to “alternative facts”, which are facts that conflict with the accepted proven facts. We now have the ability to watch news that affirms our opinion.
The days of Walter Cronkite are so far gone he has been replaced by Sean Hannity and Chris Matthews. Each one speaking the truth to their particular audience. So, both audiences walk away armed with their own truth and ready to defend it. How did we get here and is there any way we will ever accept one real truth?
Over the past few weeks we have seen President Trump accuse President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election. He had no evidence to support this information he tweeted to the world. This was his truth and he sent his minions and several government agencies in search of evidence to back up his truth. So far none has been uncovered, but Trump still holds fast to his truth.
So, we are left wondering where is truth and will we ever all be able to say in unison the sky is blue.

Who would have thought these three would be running the country?


Who would have believed that Donald Trump would be POTUS? Who would have thought his daughter Ivanka would be his right hand person in the White House and Omarosa would be working there to? Not me but this is what we’ve got.

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.

Ben Carson calls slaves immigrants…another “alternative fact”


Ben Carson called the slaves immigrants. This is another attempt to sanitize the atrocity of slavery. Slaves were forcibly brought here in chains. They were not seeking the American Dream they were brought here to help others achieve their dreams. Immigrants make a choice to come but slaves were not given a choices. This statement is just stupid. Share your thoughts.

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.

Flint Pastor stops Donald Trump from using her church

Flint pastor Faith Green Timmons stops Donald Trump from electioneering in her church. Trump politely stops. Good for her.

Is Hillary Clinton a bigot? Is Donald Trump a racist? Are those the biggest issues facing us?

Donald Trump has branded Hillary Clinton a bigot, and Clinton says Trump is a racist. They both have produced adds to support their points, but are these the two biggest issues facing us or all of us being punked? Have we merely become unwilling participants in a horrid reality show. Is our attention span so short that we can not tolerate a discussion of real issues? Are we getting what we deserve? If we demand more our candidates will it actually require more from us? Share your thoughts.
