Serena Williams, Anything, But A Role Model !

     At the age of 12, I began playing USTA sanctioned tennis tournaments. At the age of 12, I was almost forced into early retirement. I was almost forced to retire, due to my unsportsmanlike conduct in one of my first tournaments. Somehow, as a 12 year old, I got the bright idea that it was "cool" to throw a temper tantrum on court when losing. Yes, I thought I was quite the hotshot throwing and hitting my tennis rackets into the court each time I lost a point. I did this, knowing I could be penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. I knew I could be penalized, and I didn't care. Lucky for me, I was not penalized by the tournament officials. However, I wasn't so lucky when it came to my parents. My parents were thoroughly disgusted. After watching their daughter bang the racquets they'd bought yours truly, they'd had it. Not to mention that I'd  lost a match to someone whom I should have beaten due to spending more energy on slamming my racquets than energy spent on playing the match.  My parents said, "enough". Very quickly after the match I had lost due to being a little  spoiled brat, I was informed, that if I ever threw or slammed my racquets again, my tennis career would be over. "No more racquets, no more lessons, no more fancy tennis clothes, and no more tennis tournaments". Looking back, I can't say I blame them, and it was the best thing that they could have done. It was the best thing they could have done for my character and the best thing they could have done for my game. It was the best thing, as my parents taught me how to be sportsmanlike, have proper etiquette,  how to be a lady, how to be mature, how to have class, and how to have dignity. Clearly, Serena Williams was never taught the lesson my parents taught me. Most of all, my parents also taught me how to be a gracious loser, something Serena Williams never has been.

   After that tournament where I'd been oh so cool, I made it my mission to actually be "cool". I accomplished this by emulating a player whom I had idolized, Chris Evert. Chris Evert, better known as the "Ice Princess", or "Ice Maiden". At the time of my growing up, Chris Evert represented everything a young girl playing tennis wanted to be. Chris Evert might as well have been a real Princess. She was cool, she was calm, she was poised, she was intense, she was unflappable, she was emotionless. Chris Evert was a lady. Chris Evert's on court demeanor was something of perfection. I tried my best to imitate her and I came pretty close. I could be down in a match 0-6, 2-5 and win in the third set . Three set matches were pretty routine for me. I may not have ever made it to number one in the world, but I was completely inexpressive in my matches. Nothing ever phased me, and if it did, I certainly never showed it, and I was better for it. Had Serena attempted to be more like Chris Evert, perhaps she'd be better for it as well. She'd certainly been a better role model for her daughter. I don't think any woman would have held Serena Williams up as a role model after her infamous loss to Naomi Osaka at the 2018 U.S. Open.

   Bottom line, Serena Williams is not a role model for any child. To put it bluntly, Serena is nothing more than a sore loser. Serena has played over 100 U.S. Open matches and in three matches, she threw temper tantrums yelling at officials. In those 3 matches, Serena was losing every one of them. Unlike past champions who lose, pay their opponent a compliment and say, "it wasn't my day", Serena instead always makes excuses for her losses and or throws temper tantrums. Serena got everything she deserved in the final of the U.S. Open. She wasn't wronged, because she was a woman, and she wasn't wronged, because she was Black. She was legitimately penalized for her unsportsmanlike conduct. Through the years Serena has gotten away with her various antics due to her status as a top player, and Umpire Carlos Ramos wasn't afraid to stand up to Serena. For that he should be applauded. 

     Yes, it's true some men have gotten away with saying and doing far worse than Serena. So too has Serena in the past. The fact of the matter was, her coach was coaching, and he admitted it. So much for Serena's argument that she doesn't cheat. It's rather amusing that Serena demanded an apology from Umpire Carlos Ramos when she knew darn well that her coach was signaling and coaching. I guess not only is Serena guilty of  unsportsmanlike behavior, she's also a liar. In trying to may a plea for the allowance of players having emotions and coaching being legalized in tennis, her coach proved his player was a liar. I find it interesting that Serena's coach found Serena's acting like a madwoman acceptable. While Billie Jean King and other various commentators played the woman card and claimed that men had done far worse I have to ask, does it make it right? The truth is, many men have been penalized as well for their outbursts. Many men have also gotten away with it. The bad boy of tennis from years past, John McEnroe, was even defaulted for his behavior in a match. The bottom line, unsportsmanlike behavior is simply unacceptable. Further more, women are held at a higher standard than men as they should be. Why? We're better than behaving like a bunch of uncivilized lunatics. If tennis allows women to behave as Serena did in the women's final where does it stop?Will tennis soon become like hockey and football? Will spectators bare witness to Serena punching, slapping, or kicking her opponent? Frankly, I don't  think the fans of tennis care to watch linebackers in tutus having temper tantrums. I know I certainly don't. No, tennis fans want to see professional tennis players act professional and show their craft, not show their inability to control one's temper.

To The President's Defense

      Senator John McCain versus President Donald Trump will be no more. The fight is officially over for the war hero who survived being a prisoner of war in Vietnam for five years. McCain finally succumbed to brain cancer at the age of 81 this past Saturday, August 25th 2018. Upon hearing of the late Senator's passing, the President tweeted, "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!" The President's tweet was completely unequivocally appropriate. In fact, the President's tweet was a rarity in that it was a perfect tweet for the moment. However, others such as Brit Hume thought differently. Brit Hume tweeted, "Still not a kind word about McCain himself." To Brit Hume and all others that criticized the President on his tweet, I say "I wouldn't have expected anything more."Why? The answer is quite simple.  The President and the late Senator were arch enemies. Senator McCain fought the President at every turn. The two were not at all close, they were not bosom buddies, they weren't even friends.  That being said, the President's tweet was exactly what should have been tweeted. Had the President sung praises of the late Senator it would have been nothing, but lies. Not to mention, that had the president said anything, but mere thoughts of prayers, his words would have been taken as phony and mainstream media would have attacked the President with harsh criticism. 

   That being said, the fight is over. The late Senator's fight against the President is over. So too, should the fight be over for all Republicans who had feelings of hate and contempt for the late Senator. As Twitter and Facebook users spew words of hate against the late Senator, I say stop the hate. Senator John McCain spent the last year of his life fighting against the President, while precious time with friends and family was wasted. Then again, as so it would seem, the late Senator chose to spend the last year of his life battling the President. It would appear that's exactly how the late Senator wished to end his life. Well, his fight is over and so too is the fight against him. Let all who hate and despise the late Senator, let him Rest In Peace. The man's fight against cancer, the President, and fellow republicans with whom he disagreed is over. So too, is the fight against him as well. Let us not fight against a ghost. Let us rise above the hate, and put it to rest. I do believe we Republicans have real battles to fight against real persons and elections to win.

Disillusioned And Scammed



        January 20th 2017 was a day I will forever remember. It was inauguration day for Donald J. Trump and I was tremendously overjoyed. I had posted some 350 plus videos and blogs in support of Mr. Donald J. Trump. I had the utmost faith in the man for whom I had chosen to  support as America's 45th president. I had the utmost confidence that Donald J. Trump was the man that was the answer to America's prayers. Our prayers were answered as Hillary Clinton had been beaten, and Barrack Obama's term had ended. January 20, 2017 was a great day for Americans, and a great day for America. America would be great again. 

  January 16, 2018 was a day I will also forever remember. It was a day in which I donated a sum of $3.00 to the President Donald Trump campaign, and was wrongly charged $250.00. I was attempting to enter a contest to dine with the president and donate to his campaign. The minimum was $3.00, and that was what I chose to donate. Upon entering my donation, the screen said, "thank you for your $250. donation. Upon seeing this across my phone screen, I nearly went into cardiac arrest. I was literally speechless. Once I was actually able to get the words out of my mouth that I'd felt I had just been scammed, I picked up my phone. I picked up the phone and I called Chase Bank as to stop the payment of $247. and approve my $3.donation.  They obliged. In addition to explaining the error that took place to my bank, I emailed the Trump campaign. I never received a response. Not only did I email the campaign, but I called the campaign office, left messages, and even called a woman whom I knew quite well  that worked closely with the president and his campaign. Not one person from the Trump campaign returned my calls, nor my emails. As I had done all I could do on my end, I hoped and assumed that Chase would resolve the wrongful donation that was made to the President's campaign. 

   March 14, 2018 I was charged the amount of $247.00. I was told by Chase that the Trump campaign had won the case in their favor. There was nothing more Chase could do. I was devastated. I was devastated as I felt scammed. Clearly, I had every right to feel that way. Not only did I feel scammed, but I felt disappointment. Disappointment, as the man for whom I had written blogs for until  2, 3, 4 and 5 am appeared to be the con artist whom I had been warned about.  Prior to the election, there were reports on Donald Trump had scammed people with his Trump University. Mainstream media also reported numerous employees and or contractors that had never been paid by Donald Trump. I had been told by many in Palm Beach, Florida, that Donald J. Trump was a scam artist. I had been told Donald J. Trump was a shrewd and unfair businessman. "He's as dirty as they come" one man exclaimed. I had also been told Donald J. Trump had  a history of using people and discarding them when they were no longer of use to him. Prior to the election, I  ignored all negativity regarding Donald J. Trump. I believed in Donald J. Trump. I not only believed in Donald Trump,I believed Donald Trump. I believed Donald Trump's word meant something. Heck, I believed his word was everything.  I  believed the Trump rhetoric, that all bad press was "fake news". Unfortunately, $250. taken out of my account that should have been $3.00 was not "fake news". It was very real. It was real that the Trump campaign had in my opinion scammed me out of $250.00. 

    After losing my case to the Trump campaign I had, shall we say, a bitter taste in my mouth.  As throughout the campaign I would blog my support for the president, I thought about blogging about how I felt I'd been scammed by the Trump campaign. However, I held back my blog on having $250. taken from my account unwillingly. I held back as I wanted to give the Trump campaign a chance to correct their mistake. Upon receiving a letter asking for money for the Trump campaign, I wrote a letter. I wrote a letter to the campaign carefully explaining what had taken place along with my banking statement. I never received a response. It was at that point that I decided to blog about my unfortunate experience. I had given the Trump campaign several chances to right a wrong and they failed to answer my emails, my calls and my letter. To say I was angry would be a gross understatement.  My anger was temporarily pacified as I was given a glimmer of hope of possibly receiving a refund. A woman from the Trump campaign asked me to call her upon my stating that I was disappointed in the President and his campaign and my being scammed on Facebook. My call was never returned.

   While I was disappointed in the President and angry , my anger intensified upon seeing more Donald Trump contests pop up on Facebook. Upon seeing a Donald Trump Facebook contest, I decided to share my negative experience with others on Facebook. I now regularly posted my negative experience with the Trump campaign. I do this as to warn others that just as I had felt I had been scammed, others too could be scammed. While the amount was $250. instead of $3.00 I suppose I should consider myself lucky that the campaign didn't take $20,000!  In a last ditch attempt to reach out to the Trump campaign I wrote a detailed letter with an explanation as to how I was wrongly charged a $250. donation. No one ever responded to my letter. I can't say I was surprised as I figured that my being scammed was just more of how Donald Trump's businesses were conducted. That being said, be forewarned when you enter a Donald Trump campaign contest, You could donate $5.00 and be in for a surprise as your screen says, "thank you for your $500. donation"!

The Trump Affect !

   "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? -Donald Trump on presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina

    "I never attacked him on his looks, and believe me there's plenty of subject matter there."-Donald Trump on presidential candidate, Rand Paul

  "He put glasses on so people think he's smart. People can see through the glasses. --Donald Trump on presidential candidate, Rick Perry

  Whatever happened to people having manners? Whatever happened to people being nice? Whatever happened to people having respect for one another? Whatever happened to people having respect for the opinions of others? Whatever happened to people debating with facts and feelings without insulting one's looks, size, and intelligence? Whatever happened to adults behaving as civilized adults and not uncivilized adolescents? What happened, was Donald Trump. 

   Donald Trump is what happened to America. Donald Trump ran for the presidency and suddenly a man being a bully was a good thing. Why, Donald Trump being a bully wasn't just viewed as a good thing, it was viewed as a great thing. It was entertainment. America actually viewed and applauded a grown man behaving like a child. America watched and applauded a grown 70 year old man spew insults at other candidates. Debate after debate, America watched in hopes Donald Trump would call another candidate a name, mock, and or imitate another candidate, and or insult another candidate's looks, intelligence, and or personality. America loved it. America downright thrived on it, myself included. Looking back, I am in disgust. I am in disgust with myself and all that approved of such mean, classless, immature behavior. Behavior that should have been criticized and punished was instead applauded and rewarded.

     America rewarded Donald Trump alright. America elected him as their 45th president. America rewarded a man that was a bully. America condoned and rewarded a man that insulted the looks, intelligence, and personality of other candidates. Interestingly enough, while Donald Trump mocked the appearance of Republican candidates, he never insulted the appearance and size of his opponent, Hillary Clinton. In looking back, I am quite appalled that Donald Trump would have had the audacity to attack the other candidates on their looks and size. While Donald Trump said there was plenty of subject matter in speaking of Rand Paul's looks, I have to wonder if Mr. Trump has taken a good look in the mirror. While some 30 years back, Mr. Trump may have been a dashing young man. At present, Rand Paul is by far better looking and in better shape. For that matter, the majority of the candidates were in better shape than Donald Trump. I'm quite surprised the other candidates did not comment on Donald Trump's looks and weight as I hate to say it, but there's plenty of subject matter there. Apparently, the other candidates were above stooping to Donald Trump's level and chose instead to debate on the issues and facts. While those candidates should have been respected, admired, applauded, and rewarded, those candidates were not. Those candidates lost and Donald Trump became our president, and thus came to fruition the "Donald Trump effect".

 "You're a c you next Tuesday." Translation," you're a "cunt."  "You're an old hag." "You're a bimbo." "You're a bitch." You name it, I've been called it. I've been called every name in the book by amusingly, those who at one time praised , admired, and applauded me and thought I was some kind of wonderful.  I was wonderful as long as I wrote in favor of the President. I was wonderful until I wasn't so wonderful. I was no longer wonderful once I dared to speak up and hold our newly elected President accountable. How dare I speak up when I noticed Wall Street very much in the White House?  How dare I speak up when more troops were placed in Afghanistan? How dare I speak up when Obamacare was not repealed and replaced but instead funded with Trump signing the Omnibus bill? How dare I speak up when a ban on big game trophy hunting was lifted? How dare I speak up when Hillary was not locked up or even so much as subpoenaed?  How dare I speak up as not one brick has been laid on the wall with that big beautiful door? How dare I speak up as the tax cut has been proven to not be much of a tax cut at all for those in need? How dare I speak up and say, "America isn't great", as gas and food prices continue to  rise? How dare I speak up as health insurance premiums have become virtually unaffordable for many? How dare I speak up as the Trump administration moves to lift the ban on extreme hunting tactics? How dare I speak up as the president actually takes the time to have a meeting with Kim Kardashian on prison reform? Bottom line, when it comes to Trump supporters,  how dare I speak up at all? Yes, how dare I speak up unless it is to praise and worship the anointed one, President Donald Trump? 

   Speak up in favor of the President, Trump supporters think you are the most beautiful intelligent person on the planet. Speak out against the President, and you are a vile human being. Hence, the "Trump affect".  Having written over 300 blogs in support of the President, I myself experienced great flattery. I had more proposals than one could imagine. However, while the right adored me and wanted to court me, many on the left wanted to kill me. If the left didn't want to kill me, there were thousands of others spewing disgusting comments and insults. As a Trump supporter, I thought the left to be vile, disrespectful, and disgusting. The truth was, the left was disgusting. They were disgusting for behaving as uncivilized human beings. They were disgusting for trying to bully me into not using my freedom of speech. Unfortunately, the Trump supporters proved me wrong. They proved me wrong once I decided to use my freedom of speech as to hold the president accountable. Trump supporters, as well, became disgusting. While I have experienced the mean, cutting, and vulgar comments due to my holding the President accountable, I have noticed political commentator, Ann Coulter, too has suffered mean comments as well. Ann Coulter, unlike so many political pundits on the right has both applauded and critiqued the President and she has suffered for it. Has she really suffered?Doubtful. However, anytime Ms. Coulter decides to speak out against the President, Ms. Coulter has a full thread of vulgar comments and insults. Many comments consist of expletives showing the intelligence of these people is not all that high. The comments also are a display of the lack of respect many Americans have for others and it's really quite sad. However, we asked for it. President Donald Trump set the tone. He set a tone that it was okay to mock, insult, and disrespect others and America bought into it. America bought into it and we at present have the "Trump effect".

    Trouble is, the "Trump effect" has spread nationwide. On almost a daily basis, America is aghast at the meanness of others. Really? Why? We asked for it. We voted for it. We said it was okay for grown ups to disrespect and be mean to others when we elected Donald Trump. The trouble is, now individuals in the President's family and administration are now being mocked, imitated, taunted, and insulted. I suppose with the "Trump effect", you get what you ask for. Sadly, while our President has built a career on being a bully, our beautiful and intelligent First Lady is doing everything in her power to stop it. She is to be applauded. Unfortunately, her husband has set the tone. The tone being the "Trump effect". The "Trump effect" which has hurt this nation greatly. The nation has been hurt greatly, and the "Trump effect" is now dividing my party. The trouble is, Trump supporters are now attacking those in their party that dare not be enthralled with the President. The trouble is America has become a bunch of bullies. Americans, both conservative and liberal have become  just like their President, a bully. With that being said, America is not great. America is not great when it becomes okay to call any man or woman names. America is not great when it becomes okay for adults to insult and mock one another. The "Trump effect" is not okay. The "Trump effect" needs to stop. It needs to stop and Americans need to respect the opinions of one another and debate one another on the issues and on facts. The fact is, if one can't debate without insulting another, then one clearly can't handle the debate. If we are to make America great again and become a nation that's united, then we need to develop a respect for one another, and a regard for one another's feelings and opinions. The bottom line is, America can never be great again under the "Trump effect".

Has @realDonaldTrump Forgotten America First?

   AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA - IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!-Donald J. Trump


    The fact is, nothing good has ever come from the U.S. intervening in the Mid East, and nothing good will ever come from U.S. intervention in the Mid East. Yet the President seems to have an overwhelming desire to continue doing what hasn't worked in the past. I believe the definition of insanity is one doing the same thing again and again with the expectation of different results. That being said, America's leaders have displayed complete insanity in continuing to intervene in the Mideast.  Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Yemen have all been complete disasters and surprisingly, our President appears to have forgotten.

  Afghanistan, is as of today no better off than it was back in 2001. America however, is worse off than it was in 2001, thanks to getting involved in Afghanistan. Thousands of American lives have been  lost, and a trillion dollars in military spending has been added to America's deficit. Iraq, another disaster, is sadly worse off today than it was in 2003 , and it's been even more of a disaster than Afghanistan. America was successful in removing the tyrannical and vicious dictator, Saddam Hussein, but the outcome was even worse. With the removal of Saddam, the end result was the terrorist group ISIS, a highly dysfunctional sectarian government, over 1.4 million Iraqis killed, the loss of over 4400 American lives and over $1.1 trillion spent. With Afghanistan and Iraq being epic failures, one would have thought America might have learned its lesson, but America did not. No, America just could not stand by and do nothing. America got involved in Libya and the removal of Muammar Qaddafi. As bad as Qaddafi was, the people of Libya were better off under his regime than the current regime. The result has been another disaster, and a government equivalent to the failed state of Somalia. Another utter disaster of America's failed intervention was Yemen. Yemen brought years of drone warfare, and the government take over of Houthi rebels . All in all, America's intervention in foreign wars has brought nothing but added chaos, lives lost, and trillions of dollars spent, and for what? 
      Nothing good came from America intervening in wars that weren't America's to fight. Nothing! At a rally held by then presidential candidate, Donald Trump, Trump stated that America had spent $6 trillion on wars in the Mid East. Trump claimed that we could have rebuilt our country twice, had we not spent $6 trillion on wars abroad. Unfortunately, a good many Americans voted for Trump on that issue alone. While the actual number is somewhere around $5.6 trillion, it's not far from Trump's $6 trillion figure. That's an outrageous amount of money spent for wars that weren't ours to fight and wars that brought even more conflict and disaster to the region. That's also an outrageous amount of money that as Trump stated on the campaign trail could have been better spent right here on our own country. While $5.6 trillion spent is a high price to pay for unnecessary wars, one can't place a price on the loss of American lives. Over 12,000 Americans have been killed fighting wars that weren't ours to fight, and over 900,000 more have been wounded due to war injuries as well. Not to mention, the high suicide rate among those who've served. Those who've served in wars that again weren't ours to fight.  
   "America first", is the phrase the presidential candidate, Donald Trump used again and again. "America first" and "make America great again" were the two slogans Trump supporters had drilled into them at Trump's presidential rallies. Donald Trump, the candidate, was America's answer. Finally, America had a man that intended on placing "America first". After years of senseless spending, if elected, Donald Trump would be the president that would rebuild America and not partake in wasteful spending abroad. Not only would Donald Trump rebuild America, but he would be the president that would "make America great again". "Make America great again" was THE slogan that helped Donald Trump get elected. The slogan was perfect, and it was convincing. In fact, Trump even went so far as to run a campaign ad exposing the deterioration of America's infrastructure and the rebuilding of America's infrastructure. It was one of the greatest campaign ads ever run, and it worked. Donald Trump was elected president.
  Unfortunately, Donald Trump, the presidential candidate and President Donald Trump appear to have two very different agendas. Donald Trump as a private citizen relentlessly tweeted against U.S. involvement in Syria. Trump as a presidential candidate campaigned on staying away from foreign intervention. Trump as president has done the polar opposite. Last April President Trump informed President Xi Jinping of China of a US cruise missile attack on Syria as he spoke of, "the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake you've ever seen". The attack was in response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's using chemical weapons to kill helpless babies, women, and children. Political commentator, Ann Coulter ,tweeted that the President had ordered the air strike due to the urging by First Daughter, Ivanka. The attack was criticized by many. Many, that thought President Trump would be different from his predecessors, in that President Trump as a candidate had campaigned against US foreign intervention. 
   There is no doubt that Donald Trump, the president, is very different from Donald Trump, the candidate. As president, Donald Trump clearly wanted to prove a point to Assad that he, unlike former President Obama would not draw imaginary red lines in the sand. President Trump executed military action, unlike Obama who threatened military action but failed to execute military action. Unfortunately, President Trump forgot the base that helped him get elected in doing what Obama failed to do . President Trump forgot his base and forgot the platform on which he ran, of "America first". 
  April 7th, a chemical weapons attack took place in Syria. In response, the President warned of a possible attack. Upon hearing this I couldn't help but think back to Donald Trump, the candidate who again and again stated that he would never announce a military attack. He preferred the element of surprise. Then again, Trump's warning gave several political commentators the opportunity to plead with him on reasons to stay out of Syria. Fox News' Laura Ingraham, explained to her audience why the president should not attack Syria. Ingraham explained how Assad as bad as he was, did protect Christians and had been successful in fighting ISIS. Fox News's Tucker Carlson tweeted, "Assume Assad used chlorine gas. Is it worth starting a war? Overthrowing Assad results in chaos. Thousands die. We might see the genocide of one of the last Christian communities in the Mideast. Does it make us safer? Region more stable? How did regime change in Iraq and Libya end up?" Pat Buchanan, political commentator and  former adviser to U.S. Presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan also advised against the air strikes in addition to several others. 
   Despite the pleading from the pundits, April 14th, President Trump announced that the U.S., Great Britain, and France launched air strikes against Syria in response to a chemical weapons attack that took place on April 7th. The air strike targeted Assad's facilities that developed and produced chemical weapons. While the air strike proved to be a success it was not deemed a success with the President's base. Social media outlets, Facebook and Twitter ,were abundant with comments on what happened to America first, what happened to Donald Trump the candidate, who vowed to refrain from foreign intervention? In addition to Trump's base being disappointed in the President, many political commentators were disappointed as well. Political commentator,  Ann Coulter retweeted several anti-air strike tweets including one tweet consisting of Professor Jeffrey Sachs explanation on why Trump should not intervene in Syria. The controversial Trump supporter Alex Jones expressed his disapproval of the President's actions against Syria as well as Roger Stone. Conservative Michael Savage of the Savage Nation tweeted on how there was no proof the chemical attack was led by the Syrian army and "why only women and children shown in the propaganda pics?" As outraged as Michael Savage was on Trump's lifting the ban on big game trophy hunting, he was even more outraged over Trump's air strikes. Flamboyant, gay, conservative political commentator, and author, Milo Yiannopoulos was clearly disgusted in the President's actions. Yiannopoulos posted on instagram, "more pointless f-g foreign wars #noSecondTerm", and Info Wars' Paul Joseph Watson tweeted, "attacking a foreign nation that has not attacked or threatened America is globalist intervention. This is not America first. This is not what Trump was elected for." 
   No, foreign intervention was not why Trump was elected. Trump was elected on NO MORE FOREIGN INTERVENTION, NOT MORE FOREIGN INTERVENTION! Unfortunately, the president has forgotten the platform that got him elected, but the voters haven't forgotten what got him elected. What got him elected was "America first". Last week's air strikes was not putting America first. America has been involved in 4 wars in the Mideast since 9/11 and nothing good has come from any of those wars. The fact is, the Mideast is a hellhole of disaster and chaos. America's involvement only brings more disaster and chaos as well as money spent that America doesn't have to spend and the loss of innocent lives. While the chemical attack is unacceptable and horrific, it's not our problem. It's also not America's duty to police the world. Horrible atrocities are taking place worldwide. Every 56 hours a White South African farmer is killed, yet the President does nothing. Who is the President or America to choose who's lives we value more? The fact is, the President ran on less foreign intervention and he needs to stay on course.  Perhaps the President would be well advised to go back and read the platform on which he ran. The platform on which the president as a candidate ran is very different from the platform the president appears to be following. That being said, the President himself is very different from the candidate for whom America voted. America voted for, "America first". America voted for Donald Trump, the candidate. Last week's air strikes are not the actions of Donald Trump the candidate whom America elected. America has instead, gotten President Trump who appears to have forgotten, "America first".

Make Big Game Trophy Hunting Illegal Again!







         
It is said that an elephant never forgets, and unfortunately for the elephant, the cliche' is quite true. In fact, when an elephant is killed the family members will grieve for quite some time. It has been reported that elephants will visit the graves of their dead family members for years on end. As elephants are known to be highly intelligent and sensitive, elephants have been spotted weeping tears of sorrow, just as humans weep at the loss of their loved ones. Elephants not only grieve their lost loved ones, but they have been spotted covering the corpses with branches and carrying the tusks to another location. The death of an elephant is terribly traumatic for their families, but even more so for the young babies. Just as a human baby can not survive without his or her mother, an elephant baby cannot survive without it's mother unless rescued. All elephants under the age of two do not survive the death of their mothers, unless they are rescued. Even when rescued most orphaned elephants do not survive. The elephant calves have been known to cry for months on end and are forever traumatized by the killings of their Mums. With this knowledge I ask, how can anyone promote or approve the killing of elephants?  
    
  In the early 1900s there were approximately 10 million elephants in Africa. Presently, there are a mere few hundred thousand. That number is quickly declining as approximately 100 plus elephants are killed daily. African elephants are currently protected under the Endangered Species Act as elephants are considered "vulnerable". "Vulnerable" is another way of saying that the species is somewhere between near threatened and endangered. In fact, elephants are listed as an endangered species on the International Union For Conservation of Nature's Red List of the conservation of animals. In other words, if our leaders don't take action to save the species, the African Elephant will no doubt become extinct. 

  Just last week, Fish and Wildlife made the decision to lift the Obama-era ban on the import of elephant trophies under the Endangered Species Act.  The decision was made due to the Obama administration's failure to follow the precise letter of law when creating the regulation banning big game trophies. Due to the idiocy of the Obama administration, the NRA and the Safari Club filed a lawsuit against Fish and Wildlife asking for the allowance of importing trophies on a case by case basis. Whether it's a case by case basis or the allowance of all trophies, the end result is the same. The end result is more elephants are killed and the species is not preserved as hunters and Fish and Wildlife would like to have people believe. 

   The fact is, allowing hunters to hunt the species legally does not save the species. While hunters would have the uninformed believe trophy hunting raises money for conservation, that just isn't the case. The fact is, the non-hunting tourists make-up 99% of the tourism economy. While only a very small fraction of hunting money actually benefits conservation. Hunters will also preach that hunting aids in keeping the populations at healthy levels. Wrong. Hunters many times choose to target the larger genetically strong individuals which results in a weakening of populations. Also of note when the larger male elephants are killed, the younger males often go on a rampage of attacking humans as they have no father figures and they view their society as in complete collapse. Evidence of hunting failing to aid in controlling the population levels has already been seen in Tanzania where lions have been over hunted. Hunters also many times kill the young leaving less of the species to reproduce. Hunters will also claim that trophy hunting creates jobs and money for the surrounding communities. Wrong again. Only 3% of monies from trophy hunts actually goes to the local communities. As many of the countries suffer from widespread corruption there is no guarantee as to where the money is dispersed. Furthermore, the allowance of big game trophies opens the door and encourages canned hunting. Canned hunting, big game trophy hunting, both should be banned once and for all. 

   As President Trump's campaign slogan was "make America great again", I am calling for the President to make big game trophy hunting illegal again. While at present the elephant is now a target for big game hunters, there is talk that lions are next on the Trump administration hit list. While many unknown supporters and non-supporters of President Trump tweeted angrily at the President's decision to lift Obama's ban on big game trophy hunting, there were famous supporters in angst over the decision as well. Long time Trump supporter, Laura Ingraham tweeted, "I don't understand how this move by @realDonaldTrump Admin will not INCREASE the gruesome poaching of elephants." Ingraham also tweeted a picture of the President's son, Eric holding an elephant tail in which she wrote, "Please @realDonaldTrump stick with your good instinct on this. We do NOT want to reward animal poaching. You will alienate independents & conservationists!" Stacy Dash, another Trump supporter who's presently running for Congress tweeted, "This entire practice needs to be banned @POTUS Please lead the world in eliminating these hunts and the ivory trade."

     An elephant never forgets, and with all due respect our President needs to know that many supporters will never forget this decision to overturn the ban on big game trophies. The decision to allow the import of elephant trophies is a poor decision, not to mention a heartless decision. With a population in the hundreds of thousands down from 10 million, this earth just can not afford the promoting of killing a species we are in danger of losing. For that matter this earth can not afford to lose a one of many species of animals. For imagine a world without the sound of the trumpet of an elephant, the roar of a lion, the "hoo hoo", of an owl , the tweet of a bird, the bark of a dog or the meow of a cat. For that is the world our generation is fast on the track to leaving future generations. I don't know about anyone else, but a world without the beauty and sounds of domestic and wild animals would be a pretty sad world at that. As the President has been tackling making America great again, the President needs to make big game trophy hunting illegal again.

The Liberal Circus In Parkland

   Last week, America mourned with the students, teachers, coaches, and families of those killed and affected by the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. This week, America watches the students and teachers affected by the Parkland School Shooting in utter disgust and amazement. America is disgusted by the liberal circus taking place in Parkland, Florida. Instead of mourning, students and teachers are marching and protesting for more gun control. Instead of mourning after attending funerals,  students were seen smiling, laughing, yelling, and being joyous and carefree as they boarded buses to take to Tallahassee in their quest for more gun control. Instead of mourning the dead who weren't even cold, students and teachers took part and are taking part in a liberal circus as to further the left's agenda for more gun control. 

     Forgive me for losing sympathy for those affected by the Parkland school shooting. Instead of mourning, students teachers and family members of the victims are using one of the world's deadliest school massacres to achieve the left's desire for more gun control. Have these people no shame? Seventeen dead and all these people can think about is gun control? Seventeen dead, and not one person in Parkland is up in arms at the failure of the FBI to act on threats by the perpetrator, Nikolas Cruz? Seventeen dead, and not one student, teacher, coach, or parent is asking why the FBI did nothing when they were warned not once, but twice about Nikolas Cruz. One would think there would be at least one person speaking out against the FBI and demanding for the FBI to be held accountable. One would think at least one person would be calling for the firing and or resignations of every person that failed to act on serious threats made by Nikolas Cruz. 

    In September 2017, the FBI was told of a comment posted by the Parkland shooter, Nikolas Cruz,"I'm going to be a professional school shooter". Cruz didn't post "I'm going to be a rock star". Cruz posted, "I'm going to be a professional school shooter", and the FBI did nothing. Apparently, the FBI claimed they couldn't identify who made the statement. In January 2018 Cruz made a death threat that was missed by the FBI. Apparently the FBI received the tip of the death threat this past January, but due to an office error or possibly due to complete incompetence,  the FBI failed to act. Did the FBI fail to act or did the FBI choose to look the other way? Whichever the case, the FBI failed at their duty to protect the victims of the Parkland school shooting. Yet, not one parent, teacher, coach, or student can be heard publicly speaking out against the FBI. No, instead of  mourning and directing anger at those who could have taken actions to prevent the Parkland school shooting, the people of Parkland are dancing to the beat of the left and marching and protesting for more gun control. 

     More gun control would not have prevented the Parkland school shooting or any other mass shooting that has taken place and may take place in the future. Why? The answer is simple. Evil people commit evil acts and nothing the left does or says will change that outcome. With a black market spanning from West Palm Beach, Florida to New York, to L.A., criminals are able to purchase any automatic, semi-automatic, or assault weapon they desire. Gun control will not stop all mass shootings and mass killings. While some criminals might be less inclined to purchase an arsenal with stricter gun laws, it will not deter a killer from killing. Imagine if Nikolas Cruz had rented a semi-tractor trailer truck. Cruz could have killed twice or three times as many people, and would the left thenhave called for tractor trailer truck control? 

     The Parkland school shooting is not due to a lack of more gun laws. The Parkland school shooting is due to the failure of the FBI and the local authorities ability to act on tips received. Local authorities were called to the home of Nikolas Cruz some 35 times and not one arrest was made. The FBI was given everything, but a play by play game plan by Cruz, and they chose to look the other way or ignore it. All in all, the local authorities failed and the FBI failed. Yet, the  parents and children of Parkland, Florida are feeding into the left's political agenda of more gun control, and it's disgusting! 

    Frankly, it is vile that the  left's political agenda of gun control, and  their challenge against the second amendment has taken precedence over the fact that seventeen people died in a horrible tragedy. Sadly, the left's agenda for more gun control appears to be more important than honoring those who perished at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Sadly, the left's agenda for gun control is more pertinent than grieving the young lives that were lost. Sadly, the   smiles, laughs, and cheers of the survivors as they charge Tallahassee have rapidly replaced the tears of loss, sadness, and pain of the funerals held this week. Sadly, instead of respecting and grieving the dead, Parkland has chosen to play a part in the liberal circus for more gun control. That being said,  all of America should look at themselves, put aside their selfish political agendas, and say a prayer for those lost in the Parkland Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
