Support the Troops, Trump!

Mr Donald Trump New Hampshire Town Hall on August 19th, 2015 at Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH by Michael Vadon

 

I always thought that the Republicans were a party that had a main platform of supporting the troops.  They are big on defense and have argued to never criticize a sitting president during wartime, unless it’s President Barack Obama, of course.

But, no!  Trump’s verbal assault on the Gold Star Family Kahn is totally disrespectful and I’m shocked that anyone could defend his statements.

How you would feel if your loved one was killed on the job, working for his or her boss?  Then the boss totally disrespected you and won’t even try to understand your pain or have enough decency and decorum to, at least, keep his mouth shut?

Well, electing Trump as president, commander-in-chief of the military, is essentially the same thing.

My suggestion: Support the Troops, Trump!  And please don’t forget their families.

Oops, I Trumped Again!

So Donald Trump tells a foreign superpower to commit espionage on the United States?  And this is the person Republicans want to elect as president?

Apple is Right to Fight the FBI

I don’t own any Apple products but I totally agree with their position to challenge the FBI’s desire and court order to write software to unlock any iPhone.  If the government wins this fight, which I think they eventually will (unfortunately) then where does it end?

Why not create a master key to unlock every home and business in America because that’s where they plotted the attacks.  Or, why aren’t they going after the gun makers?  Last I checked, the San Bernardino terrorists used guns to kill people not phones.

Black Lives Matter v. All Lives Matter

I’ve often heard the response. “All Lives Matter,” when someone says, “Black Lives Matter.”

The best analogy I’ve heard is about cancer and disease. People wear pink ribbons and fundraise to show their support for the fight against breast cancer but no one says, “Hey, all cancers matter!” When Jerry Lewis did his muscular dystrophy fundraisers, people didn’t say, “Hey, all diseases matter!” If your response to Black Lives Matter is that All Lives Matter then it just seems insensitive to the people trying to bring attention/support to the disproportionate inequality some Blacks feel.

Much like you wouldn’t go to a breast cancer fundraiser and respond with all cancers matter, not just breast cancer. No one is claiming that all lives don’t matter or all other forms of cancer and disease don’t matter.  Just this their way of bringing attention and trying to gather support for their particular issue.
