The Case in Store for America

 

There will be a new Congress coming this January which will prove to be informative in numerous ways. Some of the coming news will be readily reported and some will be lauded as coming better late then never and the real hope that the American democracy will survive and much will be ignored, refuted and readily pooh poohed. Politics will be even more centered around President Trump with everything currently being done to weaken his Presidency continuing only to be joined by strong new efforts originating in the soon to be Democrat controlled House of Representatives. Those who have continued thus far protesting and bombarding social media reposting every anti-Trump post no matter how ridiculous the post will continue to serve that purpose giving us all the information which denigrates President Trump with varying degrees of accuracy and amusement. This, they will claim, is doing a public service providing those who may have a loose connection with sanity which caused them mistakenly to vote Donald Trump President in a fit of temporary, or worse, sanity to realize the error of their ways and thus prevent them making the same mistake in 2020. The numbers of people combating these postings will continue to drop making these heroes of America continue their campaign in the belief that they are preventing the reelection of President Trump. Polls will continue to vary wildly from week to week while many people play games when answering these poll questions simply because they do not care about polls and prefer to just have fun. President Trump will continue to have support percentages and disapprove percentages add together to measurably over 100%, an interesting result which implied that there is a group of Americans who disapprove of President Trump while supporting him. Oddly enough, this has some basis in theories about President Trump. There is a theory that a percentage of the American population disapproves of Donald Trump, the person, but support President Trump due to the political policies he is enacting or attempting to enact.

 

There will be differences in both houses of Congress. The easier change comes in the Senate where President Trump has gained sufficient support that even should Senator Mitt Romney become the next leader of the “conservative” resistance against Trump, he will not garner sufficient Republicans to prevent President Trump having the Senate approve every appointment presented the Senate which is simply a reasonable choice. We fervently believe that should President Trump attempt to appoint somebody whose qualifications for the office are in question, then the Senators will debate such qualifications and suitability for the office professionally and possibly reject such an appointment. The Senate may be requested to hold a special session by the House of Representatives where the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will preside over the Senate. For those still in doubt, they will be holding trial for President Trump or members of his administration or possibly judges he has appointed such as Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh under Impeachment charges. They will return votes refuting these charges dismissing such allowing all to remain in their positions. So, Impeachments denied and appointments approved and that is the new Senate.

 

The House of Representatives has already announced what their planned agenda is going to be. First, at least four or five committees are going to entertain criminal charges against President Trump with an intent of bring the first Impeachment charges to the floor of the House. Some of the other committees are taking a more original approach by seeking to bring Impeachment charges against a number of the appointments made by President Trump with at least one announcing they plan to bring Impeachment charges against Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh. Other items which will meet similar rejection from the Senate upon arrival are the attempts to reestablish all of Obamacare, Universal Healthcare via Medicare for all, repeal of the Trump tax cuts and reinstituting strict carbon control in an attempt to end all reliance on coal, oil, natural gas and any other fossil fuels. The Senate and the House of Representatives, beyond the approval of President Trump appointments which will pass the Senate, will waste their time and the taxpayers’ monies rejecting virtually everything proposed by the other and the House of Representatives will also reject anything coming from the White House.

 

But there will be one group which will continue to attempt to make any progress in reaching the conclusion they have been tasked with, and that is the Mueller Special Counsel investigation. Never mind that the only items they have found were extraneous charges of minor malfeasance by a small number of people who were not part of the Trump campaign or administration at the time of their acts. But Mueller has been tasked to investigate President Trump for violations under which he may be Impeached, be that the presumed Russian collusion over the election defeat of Hillary Clinton or anything he may find related or not. Nobody has been all that upset over the little fact that the Mueller investigation has exceeded spending twelve-million dollars thusfar and has shown no signs of making any real progress against the President and has been using what many do believe are inappropriate tactics. It has been stated that Mueller has threatened any of the people he finds even the slightest impropriety, that he still inflates the charges by adding in charges of conspiracy to commit more serious crimes or finding some means of dismissing or reducing sentences if only they will provide evidence, manufactured, invented or actual, against President Trump or those closest to him. There has been evidence of using the perjury trap where you have one person swear to an exchange imagined or real but in a form or order of words differing from another person which Mueller is targeting as his next step to the President. This is followed by a charge of perjury which allows the same trap to be set as Mueller works his way up the path to his eventual target.

 

President Trump and Speaker Pelosi

There are some things we can all but guarantee. The most obvious is that should the Mueller investigation be closed by the White House, you can bet your bottom dollar that soon to be Speaker of the House Pelosi will bring obstruction of justice charges against President Trump and use that to bring Impeachment against President Trump. The majority of the time spent in the media will be interviewing Democrats from the House of Representatives and select Senators while also building up the numerous individuals seeking the Democrat nomination for President to unseat President Trump. Should a Republican announce their intention to run against President Trump in the Republican primaries, they will get an inordinate amount of media time and be billed as the coming of the nation’s greatest hope. Should they succeed in promoting somebody who replaces President Trump as the Republican candidate, that person will overnight become the most devious and evil person whose mere existence on the ballot throws into question the sanity of those who voted for him during the primaries. There will be questions about how they won the primaries against Trump and they may even claim that the Russians were promoting them because they were disgruntled with President Trump as he did not do as he had been expected to perform. Meanwhile, whomever wins the Democrat primaries will be lauded as the sole logical and sensible choice to help the United States recover from the disasters caused by President Trump and to actually get to doing the work of the people which had been ignored for the past four years. The fact that the Democrat House of Representatives and the Republican Senate could not find any common ground will be blamed on President Trump as he obviously proved to be ineffective and the reason no mere amateur should be elected President and only politicians are qualified to hold the office.

 

Should President Trump be the Republican candidate, whether winning against opposition or waking to the election after being unopposed, we suspect that Mitt Romney was placed in the Senate as the Senator from Utah such that he could establish a reasonable position allowing him to oppose President Trump in the Republican primary elections. We can predict the entirety of the campaign which President Trump will use for 2020. He will place Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi front and center in his speeches about his inability to get the people’s work done without the cooperation of both Houses of Congress. He will request that the people elect a majority of people who are willing to work with him to get the remainder of those items of the people’s work done, be they Republican or Democrat, as long as they support lower taxes, deregulation, and strong borders and that he requires over sixty in the Senate which means that the majority of those Senate seats being voted need to be filled by those who will support his efforts. President Trump will possibly claim that he faced the revolution lead by Senator McCain and then had an oppositional House of Representatives and plead with the voters, though pleading Trump style will sound more like marching orders, for the people to support him for the election and in giving him a Congress which will permit him to finalize items which he was only able to get temporary motions passed. He will explain that his tax cuts are temporary and he wants to make them permanent and perhaps even make those tax cuts deeper such that the government takes even less from the people and reducing the taxes and regulations on domestic business so as to continue to stimulate the economy such that the nation reaches full employment which will allow the additional people being employed will reduce the strain on government while adding to the tax revenues. If you desire to see a similar campaign one need only look back to President John Fitzgerald Kennedy who campaigned on lower taxes and strengthening the military so as to keep world peace and give the American voice more impact in the world. The main difference will be the enemies which each identified with Kennedy making the Communist spread in the world while Trump will talk about the threats to our democracy as we know it.

 

The campaign will be fiercely fought no matter whom the Democrats choose to be their candidate. The two people who have received some coverage of being front-runners have been Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. We will go out on a limb and claim that neither will become the Democrat candidate for President and it will not be Elizabeth Warren either. The Democrat field might actually draw a sizable number of candidates somewhat like the Republican list last elections. The primary campaigns will probably be more interesting than the actual Presidential elections. What would be guaranteed is that should President Trump be reelected, the demonstrations around the nation may surpass anything ever witnessed to date. The leftists will revolt against such a result and demand an additional Special Council to investigate this renewed tragedy which had to be due to some devious means as Donald Trump could not have won as everybody they know would never have voted for Trump.

Challenges in the United States

 

Currently there are two regions of great challenges in the United States, one mostly physical the other completely manmade. The physical is in California where two massive and deadly forest fires that have raged beyond control destroying homes, communities and anything in their paths. Firefighters are battling around the clock to attempt to bring these disasters under control thus containing them, extinguishing the fires, and then hunting down the last of the hotspots, no small task of its own. Entire towns such as Paradise are going to require being completely rebuilt which will only come to be providing the inhabitants and commercial entities decide to return and not simply relocate elsewhere. One fire was presumably started by a campfire or may have been downed electrical wires sparking the exceedingly dry grasses and then, whipped by steady and strong winds, quickly spread and became an inferno. Being a former firefighter, when asked about forest fires such as what is consuming California in both the north and south, I slowly shake my head solemnly saying that despite training in structure and aircraft fires, I have never worked on fires such as these and considers myself to be extremely fortunate to have never faced such a fury. We cannot even imagine the furies loosed in California, hoping and praying that they manage to prevent any further losses of life. The death toll at the last count we have seen was approaching sixty while the numbers of missing topped one-hundred. The numbers of missing leaves fears that the number of fatalities attributed to the fires is not known and will likely rise. There is little one can add to the newswires coverage of the disasters in California which leaves hoping that things eventually come back to normalcy.

The other challenge is in counting ballots in numerous states including Maine, New Jersey, New York where two races remain, Texas and Utah which is just about the house of Representatives. Then there are the states where Senatorial races are still in doubt which include Florida and Mississippi. Lastly are the races for Governor in Florida and Georgia which are still in recount. Most of these have been resolved and have largely gone to the initial winner while in Maine there is an unusual means of voting where people cast tanked votes which are used in case no candidate reaches a majority rather than merely a plurality. This has led for the Republican incumbent Representative Bruce Poliquina to file a lawsuit in a federal court trying to block Maine from tabulating ranked-choice voting ballots. The governor’s race in Georgia appears to be an attempt to count sufficient votes such that neither candidate gets an outright majority and merely a plurality in order to force a runoff election which would usually favor the Democrat candidate, if voting profiles from the past would hold. The real contests, at least by the coverage, appears to be, where else, but in Florida and particularly in Broward County and West Palm Beach, OH MY!

 

If a recount hinging on Broward County and West Palm Beach, Florida sounds familiar, it should, as that was one of the focal counties in the 2000 Presidential recount in Florida between George W. Bush and Al Gore. The problems in West Palm Beach was presumably accepted ballots were mixed with some of the rejected ballots. The problems in Broward County are over which ballots require recounting and which should not even be acceptable for the recount. Needless to point out, everybody is getting involved and the accusations of voter fraud abound. The bright side have been the cartoon with Sesame Street figures mostly including the Count have been a feature in many places with the figures claiming they are headed to Florida to teach them how to count. Unfortunately, these recounts are of a far more serious nature than to which such cartoons allude. We very well may see a number of these recount races result in court battles where the result will be cries of, ‘Selected, not elected,” coming from the losing side, a standard set in the Bush-Gore recount and the Democrats protesting the Supreme Court ending the recount process leaving Bush the winner, by court selection, we are to presume. Whatever the results of these various recounts, hard feelings will remain and the winner may ultimately pay should they face the same opponent in their next election where that election will be cast as some form of recount of the former to determine the truly legitimate winner. Of course, that vindication will only count if your personally favored candidate wins in that election and without the necessity of a recount and definitely not needing going through a court battle. There have been claims, which we have attempted but been unable to verify, that in the recounts for Congressional and Gubernatorial elections since 2001 that, depending on which claim you run into, the Democrats have won the vast majority or the Republicans have won the vast majority. In the ever more important side where the initial winner resulted in having their victory overturned by recount, we again have competing claims which will depend on which echo chamber from which you get your news as to which one you will hear. We hope that whichever side you prefer is the only side whose victories you will read and none of the victories by that mean and horrible other party. Always remember, elections set up a temporary opportunity to get out next elections and try that much more to avoid the messy recounts and the vitriol they engender.

 

Voter Reality in Most of America

Voter Reality in Most of America

 

For those who are in the inconsolable department and are suffering election trauma, may we offer a solution. There are numerous places where one can move where such trauma inducing acts such as elections will never again invade your life. Such places as North Korea, Cuba, Russia, Eritrea, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Viet Nam, Angola and Iran, to name a few, where they have predictable election results or no elections, well no true elections where there is any doubt months before on who will win and are places one can move to be rid of election meltdowns. We would probably even advise against taking a vacation in most of these nations, but perhaps elections have become so fraught with anxiety that some might actually desire a more regimented governance where every day you know who the leadership is, well, until the other form of election occurs, the always fraught with danger popular uprising or its cousin the coup. Personally, we kind of prefer true and democratic elections, be they a pure democracy, republic, parliamentary or other more innovative form or representative governance and are happy that they turn out to sometimes be messy, it gives us things to comment on and proves that the people actually care about elections, well at least the forty to sixty percent of registered voters who vote in a population where often at best two-thirds actually bother to register. The only question we often want to ask, if in too many places you have a candidate win with sixty percent of the sixty percent of eligible voters voting who from a population where only sixty percent of eligible people register, does anyone realize that means they did not even get twenty-two percent of the people who are eligible for voting and they are declared the person the majority chose? Well, they do refer to these elections as a voluntary representative democratic process which kind of takes the fact that all too many people are anywhere from the most fanatical to somewhat ambivalent to completely unaware and uncaring to make a society. The one thing I do advise those who think that making voting mandatory is, do you really desire people who are currently too lazy to register along with those who do not care sufficiently to vote actually choosing who represents those who do care and actually make a point to vote? Personally, we would not mind if voters had to actually provide two things their candidate actually proposes to support in order for their vote to count, but that would be requiring people to actually take the elections as seriously as they should, and we know that such a requirement would drive the voting public down to next to nothing. As for if such would improve the system we will let you decide, in the meantime, we will continue to vote for those whose positions we prefer in the elections we are legally permitted to vote, and we promise to vote once and only one each.

What Did You Expect From Candidate O’Perfect

The promise was “Hope and Change” and the rallying cry that made just as much sense, “Yes, We Can!” and was just as vague and amorphous and undefined as was everything in the Candidate O’Perfect’s past. Check all his brilliant articles he had to have written to be made editor of the Harvard Law Review. But no, none are able to be seen yet he was the editor by some mysterious rite of passage as if such was required for some potential future, some arranged, bought and paid for future where he would be a good front man and allow his strings to be pulled, his image and accomplishments massaged so he would appear bright and shining and the all-around perfected candidate; he became candidate O’Perfect. O’Perfect attended Occidental College, a small urban Los Angeles college, from 1979 to 1980 without leaving any records of attendance, grades or many people who saw him in classes or even any footprints in the soft grass after a rain because the grooming of Candidate O’Perfect must never receive a blemish or have a speck of lint show on his perfectly tailored suits as such would be as a stain on the record. Next Candidate O’Perfect attended Columbia University in New York, New York from 1980 to 1983, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science which was oh so perfect and totally free of any blemish for nothing was too good for the grooming of Candidate O’Perfect. We suspect the Candidate O’Perfect actually was simply student normal out enjoying the freedoms and liberties which many students at college avail themselves of and probably was invited or simply attended some event where he either was invited to speak or took an opportunity to speak and the right set of people hears him and that was actually when Candidate O’Perfect was born. First they assured that he would receive his degree with sufficient class standing.

 

Stage two was the seasoning of Candidate O’Perfect getting him the required bonafides by arranging his activities as a community organizer. He organized and he organized until he had been seasoned sufficiently and aged like a fine Champaign, or was that campaign. Now came the time for the impressive Ivy League replete with Blazer and only the finest was appropriate for our seasoned, bonafide, polished Candidate O’Perfect; so it was off to old Boston town to Harvard he did go. As Candidate O’Perfect was breezing through Harvard he found himself listed as the editor of the Harvard Law Review without any arduous efforts and even managed to continue in that position with an equally passive approach to equally passive demands for which he received much kudos as after all, was he not Candidate O’Perfect? Soon Candidate O’Perfect received his degree with a major of Constitutional Law, the perfect degree to compliment his Bachelor Degree in Political Science and his path appeared to be set if only he avoided the kind of slips or falls which might put a dent in his otherwise perfect and carefully crafted record which contained just the right credentials as the upholder and valiant fighter for the under-privileged, decorated as the editor for the premier Law Review in the land and the undergraduate work and rights record paired with a clean and lean appearance with perfect diction, warm personality, fitting message and adaptable accent for every occasion with just the right casualness while showing a side that was erudite but not cavalier or overbearing as that would detract from the image of pure adaptability which was evident in every appearance of Candidate O’Perfect and the record of invincibility only grew with each elected office chosen carefully such that it served well and fit with the mystique and mastery of every part of candidacy, or at least the election campaigning and the rest only served well as long as there was no inspection, but to do so would reveal your craven and racist desires to despoil the crafting Candidate O’Perfect, a record deserving of his story.

 

All was in place and the fully flushed out and shiny young looking, perfectly crafted and with just the right record without blemish except for his deficiency of a complete voting record and the large number of voting “present” on almost every contentious legislation where the people were divided and division belonged in a math course and should not touch the records of Candidate O’Perfect. The powers and crafter behind Candidate O’Perfect decided that allowing him to compile a longer record would give him time for his votes of “present” to probably catch up with him; so they struck while the irons were hot and he was thrust against the candidate claiming that first of being elected a woman whose entire career was spent in and about politics, the governor’s mansion in Arkansas and the White House and a stint in the Senate. Yet Candidate O’Perfect offered just as exciting a first if elected as his father was a native from Kenyan citizen and his mother a citizen of the United States, Caucasian and extreme leftist but Candidate O’Perfect had a sufficiently dark appearance and was married to a woman who left no doubt of his leanings and the camera is the final judge of all facts, thus he was a man of color; making his title of Candidate O’Perfect even more perfect.

 

Thus the first President of Color was born and all the detractions slowly fell silent as they appeared to be all the more the desperate efforts of the crazy wing of the political spectrum which are found at all the extremes of the edges of the political universe. The campaign between the old guard represented by Hilary Clinton against the young, vibrant, well spoken, personable and proves far more electable than the fated Ms. Clinton, the fated, dated, jaded, and quite hated sufficiently while the Candidate O’Perfect simply pooh-poohed as he breezed on towards the convention. Candidate O’Perfect was assaulted with questions about his relations with the Reverend White, but our Candidate O’Perfect simply tossed his head, glared at the original questioner and waved the whole problem aside and upon further questioning simply shoved the Reverend White under the bus and was never seen again, as should a media reporter ever pose such a request, the reporter gets the ‘glaring stare’ which could freeze the everglades in August and then all move on as one reporter nurses his wounds possibly proud of his wounds as they were given by the best; they were given by the Candidate O’Perfect. With the Reverend White firmly stowed under the bus, the Candidate O’Perfect continued waving away unhelpful question after question, occasionally throwing a tantrum before tossing another question after another. There were the questions about his childhood and whether he is an American by birth, how he became editor of the Harvard Law Review without writing any articles any search could produce; Candidate O’Perfect with his official record this and his perfect record that; and all them he handles with glib retorts and the media reveled in his perceived brilliance. It appeared that Candidate O’Perfect was their man through unto the end and through the nominating and vetting process he sliced as if chosen by a higher power.

 

As if a Hollywood story he swept through the campaign making a mockery of his opponent often seeming to write the media reviews of his campaign stops and debate performances. Nothing was out of bounds and nobody cared to stand between Candidate O’Perfect and his destiny, a destiny writ large across the skies, certainly this would be a match made in Heaven, Candidate O’Perfect drew closer and closer to election day and the only question on all the correct people’s minds was by how much he could win and would this be a complete shutout. Election Day came and went and the fairytale story would indeed have a happy ending and the land did rejoice the election of Candidate O’Perfect and the term of President O’Perfect was soon to begin. His victory speech had all the trappings at Grant Park in his home city of Chicago, Illinois, on November 4, 2008, before an estimated crowd of 240,000 and viewed on television and the Internet by millions of people around the globe. President O’Perfect was not quite yet in the Oval Office but who cared about such trivialities at such a historic time. President O’Perfect’s meteoric ride had climaxed at its perfect end, and how could it have ended any differently, Candidate O’Perfect to President O’Perfect, it had that magical ring and the whole world was lain out before him like a fated oyster just waiting for him to produce its perfect pearl; no-one could hardly wait for the coronation ceremony and the crowning of President O’Perfect which would welcome us to that world of promise he swirled the audience and they swooned with victory speech which came to a crescendo as he finished at such a high note with his closing words,

The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.

Now we await the words which can only be able to lift us here for President O’Perfect knew the words to say and the way to say them; surely we would all be drunk on his promises by the time they place the crown upon his head and officially name him President O’Perfect, our time has come angel who will heal our stricken world. He gave us hope all the way back on Super Tuesday but we remember Candidate O’Perfect’s words for they still ring in our ears and hearts, those words, “You see, the challenges we face will not be solved with one meeting in one night. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. We are the hope.” And we replied at his every pause with “Yes We Can!”

 

Certainly his inaugural speech will be the best speech ever delivered. And as President O’Perfect reached his closing remarks we awaited another ending above all speeches ever given, and we waited and his words flowed melodically as he stated his ending words,

So let us mark this day with remembrance of who we are and how far we have traveled. In the year of America’s birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At the moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words to be read to the people:
“Let it be told to the future world…that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive… that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet [it].”
America: In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children’s children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God’s grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.

 

That was his memorable finale? Quoting some long dead guy from the dead of winter, whatever does all that mean? Could we have been wrong and he really is no different than all those other politicians who lift us with great hope and then when the time comes to strike hard a blow at the institutions, the inequalities. What happened to the heal the Earth and the words which could move mountains of supporters? Could we have been deceived, could we have trusted a charlatan, a pretender, a man who really is not Yes We Can but more of a Yes I Will brought to us by craftiness and deceits? Where do we go if his delivery of a new age crafted around our hopes and dreams was a mirage all along? I fear we have been misled and taken to a dangerous place where our own dreams and aspirations were used to sneak a puppet whose masters we do not know into the most powerful office in the world? What can we do to undo this farce? But by the time for reelection came the words were more practical and the other choice was no choice, what could we do> We had to support him and hope that now when President O’Perfect no longer need worry about reelections he can be his own man, the man we knew at the beginning, the man who plucked our heartstrings with a melodic swansong would return and repair everything and be the man we knew he could be. But perhaps President O’Perfect was all hype, glitz and glamour, a show for public consumption meant to catch our greatest hopes and play on our greatest fears, worst guilts and strongest fears. What did we do listening to his sweet song again? The sirens’ song has pulled us off course again and we now fear we will be dashed against the rocks and shipwrecked on a dangerous island surrounded by an angry ocean with no boat and one spear amongst us, we are truly imperiled.

 

The costume on President O’Perfect is tattered and torn and his words have long ago lost all hope and we watch waiting nervously as we watch the show being prepared for our gullible little minds. It is an old song, a song which once before we ignored. What if we had listened back then and we had elected a different President O’Perfect, instead now it will be a woman who knows the ropes and imbroglios and thus will avoid making the same mistakes. Maybe this time she will be our Candidate H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectill-is-Perfect.She will simply toss aside the old Law Firm accusations and dismiss herself from Bill unless she requires his magic and Benghazi, you saw her at the witch trials, they could not touch her, what Benghazi? Candidate H for Hillary Clinton the new President Operfectill-is-Perfect will punt them and for good measure tell them the truth, her hands were tied and she was under orders and no she cannot and will not reveal from whom or when the order was given because, should she become, or do we say when she becomes our candidate, there will hardly be a day, an hour, or possibly some stations will run this quote instead of the news at the top and bottom of every hour such that by the time the November elections come around it will have lost its sting and her fateful words that were said that significant and quotable day when Hillary Clinton introduced us to her what-if-I-care side and answered shouting angrily,

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

 

Perhaps all the words will have meaning and the American people will take their vote this time seriously and remember the United States has a position and obligation to the world at large and it is darn sure time that She, the undying American symbol of all that is decent,

Lady of Liberty which Adorns the Capital Dome in Washington D.C.

Lady of Liberty which Adorns the Capital Dome in Washington D.C.

rise up and carry that weight She assumed as the Lady of Liberty, Freedom, and People’s Rights the World Over and stands again astride the troubled waters and lands representing all that is decent and good about America signaling that America has returned to the world and will soon arrive to put things right which is why She stands atop the Capital Dome and those people need Her to stand again, proud and most definitively loud when answering our calls.
