    Hillary is still 1000 times more qualified than Trump, or John Miller, or John Barron – or whatever name he is using when he calls up his social media contacts or retweets crap from a white supremacist website.

    Republicans claim to be so concerned about our national security. But let’s take a closer look – shall we?

    Republicans continue to worship Ronald Reagan – the sitting US president that actually thought selling war arms to those evil Muslims in Iran was a good thing to do.

    Putting actual war weapons into the hands of all those evil Muslims – what could possibly go wrong?

    Speaking of Trump….

    Look who’s he’s praising now – Saddam Hussein.

    I still remember when Trump praised the Communist Russian Putin and that little nutjob Kimmie from North Korea for both being such ‘strong leaders;.

    Hmmm…..if this does not make voters think twice – what will?

    Has the entire world gone nuts? Or is it just Americans thinking they are God’s favorite ones and those people ‘over there’ are not worthy?

    When hearing the current Republican temper tantrum about Hillary Clinton and the emails – just read this article.

    Another case of the Kompassionate Kristian Konservatives living by their code – Do as I say and not as I do?

    Once again I have to ask – has the world gone nuts?

    Or is it just Americans who think they can do whatever they want, however they want and to whomever they want – just because they’re upset and mad?

    There is NO reason for 5 Dallas Police Officers to be killed and several more wounded simply because there are people protesting about police killings in other states.

    I’m not condoning the recent killings of blacks by police officers. But – seriously – ambushing the police in another city is going to help the situation?

    Let’ see how long it takes before the NRA and their supporters come out and call for even MORE guns being sold to anybody with the cold hard cash in hand.

    Yeah – that’s what we need – more guns.

    • I remember all too well the riots from the years I was in high school in the early 60s —

      wiki — Major race riots have occurred in the United States at least since the Harlem Riots of 1948, but the 60’s surpassed anything previously experienced. The five day Watts riot in August, 1965 saw 34 people die and a thousand injured; and the 1966 Detroit riot, 43 deaths.

      I remember the riots in LA in the early 90s —

      CNN — “Here is some background information about the 1992 riots in Los Angeles. The riots stemmed from the acquittal of four white Los Angeles Police Department officers in the beating of black motorist Rodney King in 1991. The riots over five days in the spring of 1992 left more than 50 people dead, and more than 2,000 injured.
      The rioting destroyed or damaged over 1,000 buildings in the Los Angeles area. The estimated cost of the damages was over $1 billion.More than 9,800 California National Guard troops were dispatched to restore order.Nearly 12,000 people were arrested, though not all the arrests were directly related to the rioting.”

      I have too many memories of lessons we didn’t learn. What will it take for each of us to think about how we talk about (and to) other people? To remember we’re all part of humanity? My heart hurts.

        Agreed – lessons never learned also relates to Vietnam War.

        Maybe we are of the generation that does remember these things because we had less distractions – such as social media to further our own agenda or having to work two jobs to make the paychecks cover the monthly bills.

        And don’t even think about getting sick – because even if you have health insurance coverage, that is no guarantee they will pay their portion – let alone the high deductibles now and the co-pays.

        But doesn’t it warm your heart to know Corporations are getting our taxpayer-provided subsidies and special tax breaks – to make their CEO’s even more wealthy?

        Our priorities are wrong in America.

        And that begs the question – we seem to have a lot more mega churches on every corner – but yet our society is filled with people who are hurting.

        Mental health issues are not being treated. Hatred and Anger are spewed 24/7 by the media.

        Preachers are spewing how Jesus was a Venture Capitalist that wants everyone to be a millionaire.

        And then our obsession with alcohol abuse, drug abuse, violence and sex in everything we see and do. Let’s throw some more guns and assault rifles capable of shooing off 100 bullets in a short time.

        Yeah – that’s what we need.
