**NOTE:  Inauguration Day  January 20th 2017:

  Here at Incomingbytes.com  We choose to comment on controversial issues even when they include the ugly and distasteful. Our readers get to talk back...and we mutually  agree  to respect the opinion of others, dislike human imperfection, scum-tossing, past mistakes, folly, and foolishness.  However—we ALSO get to think...and get to discuss...the good, the bad, AND the ugly... Inauguration day includes all of them. RAK.


January 20th, 2017 is Inauguration Day! ....so...

Congratulations, Donald Trump!   

Let's Comment on  Trump's Inauguration  —Politely

The United States of America is about to get out the Golden  Trumpets. Hail the Chief,  raise Old Glory in a traditional, pompous ceremony; attend in patriotic fashion, or not, —and all that infers.   Inauguration Day  for the 'chosen'.  President-elect Donald Trump is about to become the 45th President,  either unleashed or inflicted upon the world, depending upon who you have been  listening to...


****Wow!..the first American Presidential Inauguration day was held on April 30, 1789,  which is 228 years ago.  Let us  attempt to offer some decorum and dignity to this important and momentous occasion. ****

Let's Comment on  Trump's Inauguration Day

(Continued Politely)_

That's not what  Liberals and the detractors and sore losers think, or intend to allow, under any circumstance.  

"On Inauguration day the world will fall in.  " We won't attend."  The country will blow up."  "We will protest"   "A button-pushing frenzy and nuclear holocaust"  "We will boycott the ceremony"  "America will become isolationist and trash trade agreements"  "Misogyny,'  "Cronyism "  "Racism"  "Disaster" ... are all tossed about.


Trump  supporters and advocates simply fire back (paraphrased) :

"Get stuffed...Anyone's  better than  electing patronizing, crooked  Hillary." "Your own D.N.C. blew the election when you tossed Bernie"  "We won, losers, so...... get over it".

Yes? No? Maybe? No? Never? The days leading to Inauguration Day have certainly been  heating up. Flaming hot. Acidic, visceral hyperbole. 

So.... Trump will Make America great again: Hot Or Not?

Confusion reigns in the land of the Free and Home of the Brave. Trump is a bad boy (reportedly) Russians hacked and interfered with the election, (reportedly)  and bad boy Trump  won the election unfairly, (reportedly) and the United States of America is headed for  imminent disaster ( the Liberal  conclusion, fear, blah, blah... ) (reportedly)

But relax, America....Trump's Electoral College triumph  will retrieve order from chaos and save Inauguration Day and Make America Great Again. Calm gurus insist. The sun, too, shall continue to rise after Inauguration Day.

Inauguration Day Fence-Building, Trade  and Hacking

If Trump immediately isolates America, has a tantrum, starts  border wall-building, nuke button-poking,   ignores traditional, international protocol, irritates the world  and trashes America  entirely— there  she blows...maybe. What would remain of America, nobody knows.

"The mere question: Just how likely is that?" should sway  doubters, in any creatively extreme scenario.

Unfounded rumours smack of political conspiracy...so who has been  smoking what? Was there ever any Russian election-hacking?  Seventeen security agencies knew all about it, —and did nothing?  Advised Pres. Obama  at the time of the election?  Or  did they? Subsequently HE did ...what exactly??  If not, why not?  There 'ya go. Inaction, incompetence, whatever, it was fine while Hillary was higher in the polls.  Golly gee.... That's why Trump won isn't it... Why all the whining NOW, the day before the inauguration? Really...Think about it...any credibility, let's see...were  there ever 'weapons of mass destruction' in Iraq ?  er....no.  "Mission accomplished ' became an international joke."  Right. So will "Russian Hacking".

So—it's The Donald you're Crowning...  Deal with it.  What is Trump—a  preemptive foreign-affairs genius or a certified loose-cannon? A master of one-upmanship?  A delusional billionaire without direction?  A  worst nightmare in inner circles of the self-entitled?  We can only guess.  One thing for sure, change is inevitable, and  the recent months have hosted  the most confusing, ridiculous,  unpredictable, and for the record, the  ugliest and most putrid and inexplicably shameful  presidential election in history.

We care for our American friends. 

With very, very few exception, they are absolutely great people, so of course we feel their pain, support their  concerns and still comment freely.  We're Canadian We  are not brainwashed conspiracy advocates.  We choose not to believe last-minute frantic media lies,  spinning innuendo, and questionable revelations.

Some of the subliminal  crap  from  untrustworthy, biased media , senile politicos, inner-circle manipulators,  gossips and even once-trusted Hollywood personalities....is genuinely disturbing, misplaced, and sick.  Let us be aware of those comments, concerns, and issues, but do so with peace of mind. "Where is it all coming from?" must have occurred ...or has it?

Before Inauguration Day,  let us think...

Let's touch on, and consider, and be aware of  Political lies,  fabrications, allegations,  questionable international  'friendships', and potentially disastrous political  'appointments'.  Let us studiously be aware of, but cautiously temper allegations of  racism, misogyny, crotch-groping, and deviate behaviour  of all types. Let us forget previous and sticky  Republican-brand soap-on-a-rope lynching,    epic and mindless Twitter battles , and raise our eyebrows at opportunistic, desperate revelations of cronyism and conflicts of interest.  Why?  On Inauguration Day,  all  dirty laundry— belongs in the same trash can—not staining and denigrating forever the Inauguration —a historic, traditional and proud  process.

Is   anything,  sordid and demeaning valid —when coughed up by opponents,  political 'enemies', Republicans and Democrats  alike,  —people intent on simply discrediting  —at any cost — the President-elect?

Keep in mind  that the imperfect President-elect (at an unprecedented  40% approval rating) Trump will stand alone for  Democracy on this Inauguration Day.  Not a single  whiner, loser, political enemy, detractor—or supporter, best friend or family member can take the oath for Donald Trump. He stands alone.

What has  happened TO America?  Is  Truth no longer relevant? Has fact and civil decency been replaced by creative fiction from  ugly and destructive political minds  intent upon painting America  with infidel evil,  filth,  political poison and dirt?

To Liberal doom-seekers we say Inauguration Day  IS  a great day to  wash it off and reflect.  Why?   It is true there is no crystal ball, there can be no promises or predictions made with human imperfection and folly  but — at some point in the future,  what will  YOU say IF YOUR new   President, Mr. Donald Trump —happens to turn out to be  one of your greatest Presidents?

Here at Incomingbytes.com  we  suggest that civilization and freedom itself can only survive with awareness and wisdom—and must remain  solidly  anchored by—truth,  civility, decency,  common sense, common goals, thought, maturity and reason. 

What do YOU think?


Is that Incoming I hear?

    Hear, hear! Exactly! The truth is that there are radicals on both sides. There are many, on both sides, that have accepted the outcome even though they wish it were very different. There are many on the other side who try to reach out and be humble when it comes to discussing their favorite winning the election.

    I happen to be one of the “on the fence” people who is confused by all the confusion. I lash out, I hope, on occassion because I feel like this has shown the worst that Americans can be. Oh, how I wish that Americans were always as unified when we face a crisis like September 11, 2001. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful way to live.

    I was a strong democrat back when Al Gore lost. Much younger and most definitely less wise. I was one of those who hoped that Al Gore was successful in getting the election overturned as a result of his foot stomping. If I could go back, I would have changed my vote, not because I thought Bush would have been the greatest president in history, but because when Sept 11 happened, Al Gore would not have had the strength that we needed as a leader who would bring the country together as Bush did.

    Maybe I should just write this in my blog today, and probably will, but in the meantime, I will waste your time on your blog comments. 🙂 My point is that we can either become a nation that continues to divide itself, and will fail completely, or we can become united and pray that Donald Trump will do everything he said he would.

    I sat down and listened to some old videos of Trump last night. These were back when he was much younger. He said the exact things when he was running as he did then. He said if he ran for president, it would be because the country was in such bad shape that he would run. He said that if he ran, he would win because he likes to win. He talked about the same problems then as he did during this election cycle. And during his campaign speeches, he said we are going to win so much that we would get sick and tired of winning. Does that mean we will? I am guessing that we will because Trump does like to win and he will go after everything he committed to. He’s not against any part of America. I believe that he is a total patriot who loves his country and wants to see us prosper again. Sure, some things became better under Obama and we got some jobs back, but those weren’t self-sustaining jobs where people are proud to say they work. We need the manufacturing jobs back. We need jobs that pay a living wage, and I believe if anyone can make that happen, it will be Donald Trump. No one is going to change the fact that Trump will take oath of office tomorrow, especially protests. Protesting an inauguration is counter productive. If he does something we see as wrong, that’s the time for protests and writing your representatives. My bet is, if we do that, it will unify us instead of what we have right now. I do believe we are much more alike than we are different and that, my friend, is what we should be working with when he takes oath of office. For the record, Tweeting as Trump does might not be the best solution. LOL. It’s okay to tweet about what is going on, but the attacks he makes on companies and such does not serve us well.

    One last thing. I find it wonderfully odd that companies are, since the election, choosing to add jobs rather than take jobs away. I find it wonderfully odd that since the election, companies have decided to keep businesses here rather than their original intent on taking even more jobs overseas. All of this since Trump was elected. Many people on the dem side want to say it is because of Obama’s work, yet it is all happening now that Trump was elected. People have even said, “if we take these companies back, it will hurt the other countries”. Knock, knock, is anyone home? It is appalling to me to think that we are more worried about another country thriving by sucking Americans dry of their prosperity. Thriving here shouldn’t be a scary thought. Okay, I’m really done. Thank you for the blog. It is nice to see a clear headed person who has no clear stake in what we do here (except by ripple effect). Your two-cent is accepted by me on behalf of the United States. 🙂

  2. Hi Dawn….Well done! Dawn, you certainly must get a prize for the longest comment EVER written in response to one of my 2-cent blog articles here on incomingbytes.com. Amazing.

    I certainly appreciate your dedication to this comment. BETTER yet, I commend you– I appreciate your thought and wisdom — you are RIGHT ON with your comments. Well said, and KUDOS to you for including so many absolutely valid points on what have become significant, pressing, concerns with this inauguration, –and sometimes depressing issues.

    Overall, an amazing commentary, Dawn! Please DO feel free to use it on your blog as you wish, and quote my article also if you wish. As the author of that amazing book Danny’s Grace, you are ALWAYS welcome here on Incomingbytes.com .

    |Thank you so much for taking so much time and persisting with the glitchy Captcha! Thanks again! ~R

    I’m on the HAPPY side of this situation, as you well know, Raymond, for most of the reasons Dawn stated already so I need not get into them again. The acrimony of the election I place firmly on the door step of a sycophantic media who went all out against one and full out in the bag for the other, so much so that they felt zero compunction to LIE, LIE and LIE some more. Trump never said he was a politician and he certainly isn’t politic in word nor form, so he’s not going to come across as polished and probably never will. That is freshing and perfectly fine for people who are up to here–pointing to my forehead– with fake phony politicians who say one thing to get your vote and then sit in their cushy office reaping the benefits which struggling taxpayers afford them. The elite hate Trump for the very reason THE people voted for Trump. We’re hoping for someone who will think first of our well being …and secondly to the rest of the world. After all, if the world wants the US to always be there for them, we have to keep ourselves healthy, wealthy and wise. Charity begins at home, after all. Thank you for a thoughtful post and for allowing me my say.

    • Hi Glory Lennon, you are right ON in so many ways here. Congratulations on being a thinker –and as a result, being on the happy side of the discussion. There has been so much rancor in this election it is unbelievable — Dawn covered it well, didn’t she. This election is without precedent; sadly, we must expect the lies told in the media during the election will persist for quite some time.
      Trump is not perfect. For the record, neither was Hillary, by a long shot. We say, the so-called “losing side” in any game, political or not, should step back politely, get on with understanding FULLY why they lost, and simply learn from the mistakes, and do better for the people next time. FOR the people being the key phrase. Thank you for commenting ~R
