Endorsement

A new blog has been created. And trust me, this endorsement is nothing like Ben Carson’s half brained decision to commend the right wing sadist that is Donald Trump. A new blog called Never Shut Up has been created, and because we share many of the same views, I will be jumping on board in their writing staff. I apologize that things have been so quiet here lately, but trust me, this one is the real deal.

Never Shut Up

Racism Trumps Politics

It’s no secret that the GOP gets a bad rap when it comes to issues of immigration. Often the conservatives are viewed as harsh and unwilling to let people into the country. No doubt that this is an issue that will make itself present in many of the Republican parties’ debates. However, one candidate has already aired his views on immigration from Mexico. Donald Trump is still  under fire today.

How is it that one man can have himself called a racist, be fired from NBC, and denounced by the Latino community with the announcement of his candidacy for office in 2016? Donald Trump never ceases to amaze the American people. Not only did Donald Trump go off on a racist rant about Mexicans in his announcement, but he insultingly added “and I’m sure some of them are good people”. AS IF THAT MAKES WHAT YOU JUST SAID BETTER!

How are we to assume that Trump is any better than the right wing nut jobs that drink beers and parade around the borders with their guns saying “Let’s keep America American!” First off, no where does Trump mension Canada, who most racists forget that we share a border with because the majority of them are Caucasion, but he goes as far as to call Mexicans RAPISTS!

You’re right Trump, I forgot that no rapes are ever committed by any race other than Mexicans! Silly me! But I’m sure it won’t be long until he issues an apology saying “blacks are rapists too! Anyone can be a rapist, just not people who look like me!”

If Trump is elected, not only will our foreign policy suffer, but it can be expected that we will have propaganda posted up everywhere how any race that isn’t caucasion caused WWII. Hey Donald, you do know that technically, the only people who are real Americans are Native Americans correct? You may prefer the term Indians or Redskins, but where people are civilized we like to call them what they truly are: Americans.

Trump 2016: Because Immigrants Can’t Vote!

The King

It has become an accepted fact that Johnny Carson will forever be the king of late night telivision. REst his soul, it is time that a new personality must take the throne. With so many choices on various networks, we must look to those who have created a new kind of show that has thrived in the 21st century.

From the choices below, we must take the heavy task upon our shoulders and select a new king for the new century.

Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, etc. I may not know about all of them who are out there so feel free to pick whomever you want. Email it to me and there will be a new post to come.

What is Illegal?

I got an email today about a very controversial topic. Illegal immigration, it is a problem all over the world but the person who emailed me was from America. Here is some information for those of you who may not live in America or may not know much about the subject.

The United States has two bordering countries, Canada and Mexico. The thing is we usually don’t have a problem with immigration from Canada. At least not enough to spark as heated a debate as the immigration from Mexico. 

The person who emailed me is very against those who walk the border trying to prevent the Mexicans from getting into our country. They think that it is the right of any human being to live where ever it is that they choose. They feel as though it is an issue of race, as most Americans don’t have as big a problem with immigration from Canada as they do with Mexico. This person feels very strongly about this because they have heard numerous arguments like “Well they didn’t have to sneak across the border!” or “They at least speak English!” In their opinion these arguments are insufficient. They don’t know that they didn’t sneak across the border, and Canadians also speak French so it is possible that they don’t speak English. And I admit that some of these arguments do fall through.

But in my opinion I am strongly dislike illegal immigration. However I am not saying that I dislike illegal immigrants. The idea of illegal immigration gets on my nerves because there is a way that Americans have established to becoming a citizen. And I do not find it fair to the people who go through this process to be put on hold as the government tries to deal with the problem of people not going through these steps. Illegal immigrants themselves I have nothing against. I do not agree with the method that they took to get into the country, but I don’t know the whole story. Who know if they had something to escape or if they are bad people. Some people just want to start a new life. But I do not agree with sneaking across the border to attain the things that you seek. 

But I am not only talking about the illegal immigration in America today, but also back when the settlers came to America. Lets face it, if you say that its un-american to come into America, take land, steal jobs, etc, you may want to reevaluate unless you are Native American. I’m sorry for bringing up something that most people would like to forget, but they were here first and whether we like it or not, those settlers were illegal immigrants. They were not born here but the natives were and if anything they should have taken up becoming a citizen with them.

I don’t know what to rate this but the person who sent this in rated illegal immigration “good” for giving people a new chance and new hope.

Feel free to leave your thought below or in an email if you want it to be anonymous.

Double Standard

Has anyone ever noticed that for America everything is a double standard? We always seem to try to solve the problem by doing the same thing. We seem to think that we can do no wrong. We are a world power but at times we still act like we are the new country that doesn’t know how to handle things.

Starting with Pearl Harbor. During WWII Americans were horrified by the idea of concentration camps. How could anyone one be sent away from their homes simply for being a certain religion and not looking the way that the Nazis wanted them to? Well we didn’t exactly seem to be as horrified when we sent innocent Japanese citizens to internment camps. We treated them like cattle, they had NUMBERS, and still we turn a blind eye.

Pearl Harbor was a malicious act of violence that we felt was the darkest day in American History at the time. But that did not stop us from bombing Hiroshima. “It was just because they bombed us!” people often argue. What good is that going to do?

9/11 was undoubtedly the worst moment of the 21st century. And Americans ad the right to retaliate. But the war that we started was kind of a mistake. It was mainly because we thought that people were going to attack us again and we wanted to prevent terrorism. But in some cases we really didn’t have a right invading some places. Once we killed Osama Bin Laden we felt like we were on the way to progress. 3 years later and we still have soldiers sacrificing their lives. It is time to accept the fact that we are not always right. We can not keep doing this to the families of the brave, we can not keep turning a blind eye, and we most certainly can not have the image of America tarnished with this kind of behavior.

Bullies

I made sure with the person who sent this in that it was ok for me to talk about this. But the person who sent me an email has been bullied for years at her school. The years of adolescence are the hardest times. When people are figuring themselves out and who they want to be. The last thing they need is for anyone to question that in a ruthless manner.

He is a teenage boy who has come out to everyone he knows and loves, his parents have accepted that he is gay and so have his closest friends. He said that for a while he was actually on cloud nine with the acceptance of others.

Then he got to school one day and his locker was full of mean notes telling him that he was a mistake and that he shouldn’t go in the locker room. The boys in his grade made an effort to stay away from him and hold their breath when they walked past him. “I don’t want to catch AIDs from that guy!” he heard them say.

This went on for months and when school finally let out on summer break he already had plans to go to a different school. This really bothers me because no one needs to uproot their life and go somewhere else because of someone else. Who you are is who you are and you should never be ashamed.

My heart goes out to this boy and may he find happiness at his new school and in life. Never let anyone tell you who you are or who you can’t be. At least one person will always love you if you love yourself.

Thank you for letting me post this, and I am always here if you need to talk off the record.
