My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
First and foremost I want to remember John McCain as the American hero he was. Captured in Vietnam and held for five years. He was offered a quick release by his captors because his father was an admiral but he said until his Conrad’s who had been captured were released as well he would not leave. He was tortured, beaten and brought to the edge of death more than once. I remember the day he came off the plane to a hero’s welcome. His body may have been broken but his Spirit was not.
To me John McCain has been fun enigma. His autobiography is called maverick and yet one here and against President Obama in 2008 he was anything but. He brought Sarah Palin to the four front and I believe that that has had a profound affect on our politics. He picked her the way Trump pics his nominees without knowing them. She was a long person for the job and she made a trump presidency more acceptable. So it’ll way I do blame cetera McCain for Trump.
Since Trump has been in office McCain has been a thorn in his side but an important votes like the tax plan he went along with the terrible ideals of this presidency. A tax plan that Republicans are walking back now because 1.5 trillion dollars would have easily paid for college for every single American who wants to go. And there would have been lots more left over from that. Instead we gave the rich a tax break and they are never going to spend the money. And the middle class has got a whopping $15 every two weeks in their paycheck!
In the end I wonder if Trump will be attending John McCain’s funeral. I hope not, he is a stain on our country and its institutions and should not be honored.
Calling what Donald Trump and Sarah Palin did blunders is not enough. When you are running for president you cannot afford blenders. When you are in the Oval Office the country cannot stand blunders. Temperament comes from years of acquisition of character. Donald Trump is going to the nation that is 70 year old man cannot reinvent himself. For Donald Trump his 70 years have been wasted because he has not acquired character or temperament.
What makes me the most my start people in the news media tries to compare him with Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton has lived an adult life in the service of the American people. What service other than building grotesque Towers and failing companies has Donald Trump provided the American people? Innuendos about the birth of our president? Innuendos about his rivals in the Republican primary? No, Donald Trump does not have the temperament to be the president of United States. And his putting the crosshairs on Hillary is to me Criminal.
Sarah Palin may not have been able to book a flight on Trump air. Or maybe the Trump campaign has just completely forgotten about jet airplanes. 3000 miles to go to the National Republican convention doesn’t seem like a long way. That’s about the distance that most people on the west coast are going to travel if their delegates to the Democratic Convention. I think the real reason is the fact that Trump was made uncomfortable by Sarah Palin’s endorsement speech and he yanked her off the schedule.
I wonder if Donald Trump is using Sarah Palin to send a warning shot across Paul Ryan’s bow on today’s State of the Union? Or is Sarah Palin the Loose Cannon that we know her to be? In either case knowing Paul Ryan this is not going to make him happy. She said that she plans to work on defeating Paul Ryan and his upcoming August primary. I don’t think that she has the power to do so but Donald Trump may be able to do it if he puts his mind to it. She said she would Eric Cantor Paul Ryan. It’s going to be interesting to see how the Trump campaign response to this and if they endorse it. This is the most interesting election I’ve ever been alive for. The Republicans made their bed and now they got to sleep in that pigsty. AVB http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/08/politics/sarah-palin-paul-ryan-paul-nehlen-endorsement/
Politics is a dirty business. Bernie Sanders was supposed to run a clean campaign. He kept saying he was not going negative. Yet be on the list that’s in this article and what I see myself on television is really disturbing. For example when his surrogate, Killer Mike spoke about Hillary Clinton and saying just because you have a uterus doesn’t make you eligible to become president. Bernie Sanders out on stage and said nothing. Donald Trump saw that Sarah Palin was the wrong choice for his campaign and she disappeared off of the trail. Bernie Sanders you need to step up to the plate and be the man you claim to be. AVB http://correctrecord.org/bernies-dirty-tricks-the-vermont-socialists-troubling-history-of-campaign-shenanigans/

First she blamed her son’s PTSD on President Obama. Her son went into the military in 2006 and was discharged in 2007. I know that numbers and history are hard for Governor Palin to understand but President Obama was not in office then. You add in that he never saw combat and that leaves only one reason why he behaved so badly and that’s poor parenting. So rather than blaming other people, Governor Palin you should be blaming yourself. All families have problems but you seem to be in a lot more problems than most of us. AVB
Inquiring minds want to know and so I did the research. At first I thought it was some sort of alien shielding device. In fact this was A thought out fashion decision. One that I cannot phantom making. It was hideous. Now that we know a designer was involved it’s time to never use that designer. AVB
