Once again, as in Virginia today, with ever increasing frequency in our society, violence has become an acceptable manner in which to resolve disputes. And again, the media, particularly cable news networks, have exploited the tragedy. All too often, the NEWS is not reported; but it is fueled by speculation, pundit opinion, and not-so carefully crafted commentary; and then repeated for days. Each so-called journalist will have their own interpretation of the facts, and of course, their own frequently inaccurate and dubious conclusions. Adding to this mix and promotion of sensationalism, politicians and other public figures use the incident to forward their own agendas. Certainly, copycats and others on the fringe have no need to be unique. Is it really necessary to suggest to these individuals how and when to commit a heinous felony or act of terrorism?
The email scandal, one of many, gets deeper and deeper for Hilary. Her attempts to explain her actions have no legal or political significance. Never did I believe that Gaffe Biden would look comparatively good to me.
I recently listened to Trump’s words of wisdom in Mobile, Alabama. Why did it take that long to say nothing? If the bluster and narcissism were deleted, there would have been total silence!
Is Trump willing to place his assets in a blind trust if he is elected president?
As the hurdles for Hillary Clinton certainly do get higher, the legions of her followers appear to be getting a bit more realistic about her candidacy. Her approval ratings have declined and more of the electorate are polling that they do not trust her and that she is dishonest. All justifiable. However, the truth is that those that still blindly support her remain deeply intrenched in a popularity contest. Even Hilliary herself and her most ardent groupies can not clearly articulate what positive accomplishments she has contributed to the country while in the office of Secretary of State. Hilliary has additionally committed numerous acts that are arguably illegal. And still her legions carry on. It is time that Americans elect a president on the basis of merit and not one that elevates to the office as a rock star! We have seen the devastation and havoc an inexperienced celeb can bring to our country these past six and one half years.
