Hillary Describing the Size of the Great Gender Victory[/caption]
It is Done, Now Live with It.
It is done, you heard it here first, now live with it. Voters surrendered to apathy. The nominations for President of the United States are done. Finished. Maybe. If you can only imagine how foolish it appeared to the world. For the record, let us, in a civilized manner, agree. It is clear that, —given the choices offered, exhausted, misled, and desperate, with few or no other reasonable or foreseeable options, —voters surrendered to apathy.
The historical event itself (in the predictable crowning of
H.R.M Queen Hillary Clinton) lowered the boom on America. Inexplicably, a 'great gender victory' was somehow deemed more important than the quality of candidates. And here we thought Americans rebelled against royal self-entitled monarchs in 1776. Feel the burn. (No Bernie pun intended.)
Not to complain, you understand, but reported past wrong-doings and the questionable ethics of Hillary , email scandals, curious and unbelievable
rigged vote numbers come to mind. Accusations, truths, half-truths and blatant lies, involvement with the Benghazi affair, preferential media spin, all raised caution flags for the apathetic voter, but what the hell, no matter. She is Teflon Hillary, the ex 'first lady Clinton' who was —and remains, —amazingly disliked by the public; so what. Funded by corporate interests for future favours? No comment. Bernie was far more popular with a huge following. The old upstart played well but was tossed. We can all feel warm and fuzzy when Hillary "apologizes" for past big-boo-boos with corporate crocodile tears...and pretend the 'historical gender event' makes up for any shortcomings. Cheer quickly, before you think about it.
What, Oh, No! Not her too, you Say?
Subsequently, with a collective sigh, voters surrendered to apathy. Foolishness and a sell-out of democracy comes to mind; yes, it is done, now live with it, nightmare or not. Because the Democrat National
Three-Ringed Circus Convention, in spite of all issues exposed, believe it or not, approved Hillary Clinton as the official nominee to be elected as the President of the United States. Why? Worth repeating, why? Questions must be asked. Was it solely because of her gender? Was it to 'make history, to show how "gender-equalized-socially-advanced" the DNC has become? How about because nobody cares? A perfect example, once more, of 'voters surrendered to apathy'...and as if that was not enough...
Republican Voters Surrendered to Apathy and Voted for Upstart Donald, the brash, unpredictable...Republican Candidate
The controversial 'Donald', the one-and-only big 'Mr.Trump-
full of himself', a billionaire businessman outfitted with a trendy retro orange toupee- is now the "official problematic and unpredictable Presidential nominee" for Republicans. Are those folks just plain lucky that Donald , the Republican Fixer of all Things 'arose to make America Great again? —or are they doomed? Believe it or Not. Smack your head on an oaken desk, eat ice cream fast and get brain freeze, Virginia and Joey-Billie-Bob, you deserve it, he's it.
The Big Problem
Whereas the brash, bragging, ever-unpredictable, clearly insulting, unabashedly racist candidate is
only reportedly unethical and reportedly dishonest, he is also, according to royal opponent Hillary, reportedly unstable. Yes, worth repeating, reportedly unstable—and clearly misspoken, with bad judgement.
In spite of all critics, 'The Donald' amazingly managed to out-run, out-wit (if that's possible for someone ballasted down by 'big' thinking
down there) and out-blather the ever--ultra-righteous whining Ted Cruz. As if on an X-box mission to destroy, Trump forced out more than a dozen other unfortunate candidates. Quite a messy process, we observe... Whereas most White House-bound dreaming opponents quit while ahead only yelping and bleeding, with tails between their legs, Ted left in denial of a basket-ball sized concussion and a damaged ego requiring a sabbatical from all things political for fifteen, oh, maybe twenty minutes.
And the Winners are...NOT the Voters
Most noteworthy, the 2016 nomination races became reality shows. Survivor 2016: The Worst Nominee of the Communication-Challenged. "You're Fired" being shouted from behind tall walls paid for by Mexicans proved to be more popular than Big Brother or Sesame Street:You're Fired Too, Bert & Ernie, Hillary insists..., eyes rolling, to keep up with the Trumpettes. Viewers became unstable, brash, outspoken and cranky. Predictably, the winners are...not the voters.
Let the Games Begin
The Amazing Corporate Race, where a gender-selected winner may also suffer from hot flashes while counting corporate donations, sipping coconut water in luxury; do tell. Blatantly
gushy Clintonesque comes to mind. Billy and Monica played in the oval office, too That image is burned into the exhausted , non-functional brains of Prozac -numbed voters. Subsequently, after enduring another fewer than 100 days of political hell all across America, voters and zombies alike will undoubtedly be rendered completely catatonic, but let the games begin.
Why do you have to ask? A suffocating cacophony of Trump Trash Talk, Clintonesque gush stuffed with lies and hollow political promises, flung thickly from the back of Donald and Hillary Happy Hour bus tours is about to engulf the wold. As the tide turns...hold your nose. Edgy new unknowns like Evan McMullen will collect in flocks to swear in on the action, vowing to toss Trump. The pile of hapless cannon fodder will continue to grow...
Unbelievable, isn't it?
In summary, it IS unbelievable, is it not? To date, these are the chosen future 'leaders' of America. Exhausted, apathetic, and uninformed voters somehow
yield to their fate and admire them. If the opportunity presents itself, left standing or not with the new regime, they will also blindly cheer, follow, and, sadly, emulate both of them. Not a pretty picture...
One way or the other, will America be 'made great again —by either of these two? Not likely.
With that in mind, headache or not, it is done. Live with it. Decide for yourself. Even better, consider the fate of others. Think for yourself; ponder the future of your country. Consider the big picture. Contemplate the world. The future of mankind. Apply brain-power. Repeat as necessary. Start now.
....and wait...and wait... and wait....Trump may resign yet, a new Saviour may appear, the sun may explode, or Ted may pray that Bernie awakens...
Is that Incoming I hear?

Does the Future America offer Peace?
Another Needless Massacre
Once again, the United States of America must face reality. Americans are in shock with the most recent mass shooting occurring in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Another unnecessary tragedy, a horrific killing of 49 innocent people by one unstable, radicalized Muslim; an extremist born in the USA but influenced by ISIS and the challenge of living within a complex, confused North American society . This tragedy is another event which must, at some point, be taken seriously, like it or not, as difficult as only can be imagined, —and politically-correct or not.
To ignore the reality of fanatic extremism is to invite more fanatic extremism and ever more deadly events. How sublime it seems, then, when each occurrence is followed by foolishly ineffective discussions, knee-jerk political responses coupled with bold but meaningless rhetoric and statements of position, copied, seemingly verbatim, from previous horrific mass shootings, bombings, or other horrific events. America must face reality regardless how difficult that process may turn out to be.
America must face reality, look inward and face both the guilt and results of willfully and inexplicably allowing sales of assault rifles and weapons to deranged racists, lunatics and fanatics of all kinds on watch lists, to unstable individuals, radicalized by brutal foreign influence or not. America must take ownership and responsibility for a society so immune to reason that disgruntled opponents, both foreign and native-born Americans themselves , see no other choice but to lash out and kill; turn assault rifles and other weapons against unprotected, soft and innocent civilian targets in their predictable, hopeless rage.
America Must Face Reality
Yes, everyone knows politically-correct society insists: "a mentally-disturbed individual did it." Regardless of description, those who are angry kill, mentally-deranged individuals kill, radicalized fanatics kill, extremists kill, and religious zealots with sick obsessions, motive and questionable agenda kill. Equally guilty are political and religious leaders who kill by failure to lead; governments which kill by failing to govern with reason and common sense, and all organizations and religions which kill by failing to teach peace, tolerance and understanding instead of brutal demands for compliance to narrow-minded theology, barbaric idiocy, revenge, blood-letting and execution. In the minds of desperate zealots of all stripes, no solution or path is offered but that of hopelessness of violence or death itself.
Yes, America must face reality; the hard truth that fanatic American mandates and 'rights' are cast in bitter, brittle fundamentalist self-righteousness, right-wing Republicanism, or equally bitter Democrat blather. It may be observed there is little separation in terms of stubbornness, intolerance, or mindset from that of black-robed, preachy, AK-waving ISIL extremists, bitter, delusional and fanatic jihadists, or Islamic criminals on watch lists, global or home grown.
The common operating madness is the narrow, bitter interpretation of ideology, self-declared 'righteousness' void of respect for others or any responsible, reasonable social response. Politics and religion, now equally unappealing globally, are based upon the unacceptable, deadly, narrow-minded intolerance of others. Justified by quoting verses from the Quran, chapters from a Bible, or 'rules of the self-entitled' from failed, corrupt and out-dated political platforms, the evil dwelling in the unstable minds of radicalized, angry lunatics has but one purpose; a mandate of intimidation, revenge, and fear by mindlessly killing helpless human beings in crowded venues.
Because of a long history of arrogance, greed, endless warfare and exploitation of other nations, elements in America can be held equally responsible for poverty, prejudice, bigotry, injustice, intolerance, and racism resulting in predictable radicalization, terrorism, and fanaticism, all of which are desperate responses of protest and revenge. Events like the massacres which have occurred in Orlando, the Boston massacre, 9/11, and countless other events will continue to happen. When will you get it?
Name them. You know them all. Make excuses. Declare war. Recall the blood, the horror, lifeless bodies, the maimed. Recall broken families, tears, the dearly beloved, injured or lost forever. Mass murders are happening with increasing regularity. The politically-correct may say "Yes, but, innocent people are killed daily by accident too." So sorry, but we must ask; how do YOU not 'get it' ?
The difference is that these events can be stopped. Is it that we simply cannot face the necessity of accepting responsibility for creating ideal conditions for the import of evil, and the generation of home-grown terrorism?
You need not worry about the insanity of religious and political ideological struggles half-way round the world over there, out of sight in the Middle East. The brain- worms of ideological hate, rot, and violence have clearly been imported to North America.
How predictable. Now you, too, can hustle victims from back yard massacres to emergency hospital rooms in the back of pickup trucks. How long will it be before little black pickup trucks are racing everywhere with machine-guns mounted upon them too?
America must make very difficult choices, and soon. Not choices between gun control or the NRA. Not playing political games, refusing to call horrific events radicalized Islamic terrorism by labeling them acts of insanity. Not by choosing to label perpetrators as 'deranged' or 'lone wolves' or Islamic or ISIL -inspired, when they may be all or none of the above. Building fences and banning immigrants from the USA or not doing so, whether red, yellow, black or blue-blood, and being politically-correct —will not resolve the growing problem.
Voting for billionaire Donald Trump and his fence-like brash, careless, racist rhetoric, or alternatively, voting for Hillary Clinton's suspect, pseudo-hawkish, "I can be as tough as Donald Trump" corrupt and meaningless blather about gender-driven 'historical occasions' will make no difference. It is not about choosing male, female or transgender washrooms or same-sex marriage. It is certainly not about choosing Republican or Democrat, with equally ridiculous, equally greedy and equally narrow-minded partisan ideologies —and equally presumptive intent.
It IS a choice between awaking to choose common sense and unity, or choosing apathy, enabling this social disease further, only to watch the shattered American Dream crumble and fail completely .
America must face reality. Reason and common sense have always been stronger foundations to build upon than bitter, mindless, delusional ideology cast in greed, and arrogance. Now is not the time for stupidity.
Simply observe —and think.
That's how we see it. Difficult choices or not, the right choices must now be made for humanity instead of waiting for the inevitable chaos. For the record, peace and hope are that simple.
