Trump for President?

Trump

There was an article in the Washington Post about Donald Trump gearing up for a presidential run. The majority of the comments were pretty ruthless, mostly making fun of him and questioning his qualifications.

I’ve heard Trump speak and I like what he has to say. Unlike Barack Hussein Obama, Trump truly appears to love this country. His biggest problem will be making people understand that the Donald Trump that appears on television is a TV personality and that the actual man is a lot deeper.

It’s interesting to me that the same people that think that Trump isn’t qualified to be president had no problem with Obama’s qualifications. Trump built a real estate empire, has run a business empire and made himself into an internationally recognized celebrity. Obama on the other hand, accomplished nothing during his rise to the top. His success has been achieved on the backs of foolish liberals who thought that could assuage their guilt by promoting a semi-intelligent minority up the ranks. I keep hearing how brilliant Obama is but I have yet to see one shred of evidence supporting this. Trump on the other hand has accomplished in his life time what few others have. You may not like Trump, but it’s hard to deny he’s an intelligent, capable and driven man.

My Thoughts on Obama

This was my comment on the article “U.S. military decimated under Obama, only ‘marginally able’ to defend nation” on the WashingtonTimes.com website.

Let’s see. In his short time in office, he’s :

Destroyed the military.
Destroyed the space program.
Destroyed the middle-class.
Destroyed the health care system.
Exchanged top level terrorists for an army deserter.
Ran interference for Iran as they pursued their dream of an atomic weapon.
Insulted most of our allies.
Bowed to dictators and tyrants around the world while apologizing for the behavior of the US.
Used the power of the IRS to destroy the Tea Party.
Let hoards of invading third worlders enter this country in unprecedented numbers bringing with them diseases that we once believed we had eradicated.

And then when Rudy Giuliani questions whether he loves this country, the press is outraged.

As far as I’m concerned, Obama has done more harm to this nation than any external enemy we have ever faced. Some say he should be impeached, I say he should be tried for treason.

Movin on Up

From the Fox News site:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/02/24/north-carolina-woman-claims-one-third-564m-powerball-jackpot/

RALEIGH, N.C. – A single mother of four from a small North Carolina town came forward Monday as one of three winners in a huge Powerball jackpot drawn earlier this month.

For Marie Holmes, the best thing about the lucky ticket in the $564 million jackpot is that she’ll be able to provide for her children, she said at a news conference. All are under the age of 7 — three daughters and a son with cerebral palsy.

Holmes, 26, said she gave her mom $15 to buy five Quick Pick tickets at a Scotchman convenience store on her way to church.

Holmes and her family live in a single-wide trailer in Shallotte, North Carolina — a coastal town of about 4,000 people just north of the South Carolina border. She worked at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s and other places before recently quitting to stay home with her children.

Since Fox won’t allow comments on this story, I’ll do my commenting here.

This just pisses me off. There are so many things wrong here. Here’s my list:

Single mother of four (age 26) – possibly dad was hit by a truck or something in which case I’m sympathetic, but I’m guessing, given the way most of these stories go, she was never married to the father or fathers of her children.

Gave her mom $15 to buy five Quick Pick tickets – really. Again I’m speculating here, but I’m guessing that most of the money that shes supporting her four kid with is coming from the taxpayers. If she has $15 to spend on lottery tickets, maybe the taxpayers are giving her too much money.

Holmes and her family live in a single-wide trailer – nothing wrong with living in a trailer, but with four kids it might be a bit cramped. Maybe she should be saving her dough for something a little bigger instead of playing her numbers.

She worked at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s and other places before recently quitting to stay home with her children – Nice deal. There’s a lot of women with working husbands that have no choice but to work because they need to supplement the family income. Why does this women, whom I assuming is on the dole, get the option to stay at home with her kids, while taxpayers that are funding her lifestyle don’t have the option?

It’s possible that I’m wrong here and her income comes from rich parents or an uncle that died, but I’m guessing that’s not the case. Chances are shes just another welfare queen living off the backs of the middle class.

They say that the lottery is a tax on stupidity and that may be true, but the stupid ones here appear to be the taxpayers that keep putting up with this crap.
