Genesis: 21; 12 - 21
12 But God said to Abraham: Do not be distressed about the boy or about your slave woman. Obey Sarah, no matter what she asks of you; for it is through Isaac that descendants will bear your name. 13 As for the son of the slave woman, I will make a nation of him also, since he too is your offspring.
14  Early the next morning Abraham got some bread and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. Then, placing the child on her back, he sent her away. As she roamed aimlessly in the wilderness of Beer-sheba,15 the water in the skin was used up. So she put the child down under one of the bushes,16 and then went and sat down opposite him, about a bowshot away; for she said to herself, “I cannot watch the child die.” As she sat opposite him, she wept aloud. 17 God heard the boy’s voice, and God’s angel called to Hagar from heaven: “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not fear; God has heard the boy’s voice in this plight of his. 18 Get up, lift up the boy and hold him by the hand; for I will make of him a great nation.” 19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went and filled the skin with water, and then let the boy drink.  20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the wilderness and became an expert bowman. 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran. His mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

No matter what you think, no matter what you say, no matter what you do, always remember that Ishmael is the son of Abraham and Muslims are the sons of Ishmael who received from God the promise of a great progeny.  Respect that.

Also remember that hatred begets hatred; hatred begets destruction. 
Love begets love; love begets life, peace and happiness.

Finally, remember also that there comes a time when we all stand before God our Creator and Father to hear the final decision concerning our relationship with Him and ALL His beloved children.  Remember stay ready.

Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come. Mark, 13;33

RADICALIZATION OF AMERICA



U.S.A
VS
MUSLIMS
and


MEXICANS
and


AFRICAN


AMERICANS

and

NATO

and

NAFTA

and...

Ban travel, limit refugee entry all the more, blame drug importation on illegal entry and ignore what comes through the front door, build a higher and better wall, deport, deport, deport, weaken already shoddy health care system, make a long list of promises that are impossible to keep, etc.

There are a great many radicalized American citizens in the USA who are working at radicalizing others while we alienate them all with inflammatory rhetoric. That is no way to win this "war."

Political savvy is about leading, not commanding and insulting; it is about well organized and controlled guidance and collaboration, not "I win, you lose" deal making. It is much more efficacious to learn and practice judicious use of political correctness than to accuse, threaten and castigate at every turn. Yes, governing is a skill that some have and others don't.

At this time we are suffering through a great drought of skilled governance. At this rate, American exceptionalism will be celebrated by the isolation of those who lost the art of collaborative co-governance in the world community of nations.

DEATH OF A COUNTRY, BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE, DONALD I




TO YOU WHO VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP

Sit back and witness the death throes of the democratic republic known as the United States of America.  Some of you voted for the one who promised to drain the swamp only to watch him populate it.  Others voted for the same one who promised to build a wall that a foreign country would pay for, only to hear him change his tune.  You voted for him despite his continued assertions that he admired Vladimir Putin.  You voted for him because he stated that he is pro-life only to sit back and see him destroy the lives of those who crossed his path.  You voted for him despite the fact that he has millions of dollars of debt that is being contested in the courts but does not stop him from delaring that he "loves debt."  You voted for him
despite the fact that he refused to open his tax returns.  You voted for him although he brags about the fact that he is smart because he knows how not to pay taxes.  You voted for him all the while knowing that he said that the president of the United States doesn't have any possible conflicts of interest.
You voted for him even as he constantly attacks the press and electronic media.You voted for him despite the fact that he disparages the intelligence apparatus of our government.  I could go on but the bottom line is this:

Donald Trump does care about the present structure of this country.  He does not care about its people.  He is bound and determined to do what he wants to do come what may.  No one will change his mind.  He will continue to attack one and all who do not see things the way that he does and tell him about it.  He is A DICTATOR IN HIS OWN MIND AND HE INTENDS TO DESTROY ANYONE WHO CHALLENGES THAT.

His saying that the USA will begin to spend for the construction of the wall is not a simple change of mind...it is a savage show of authoritarian force that shows that he can and will do anything that he wants.

Wake up, USA.

PRESIDENT? AUTOCRAT? DICTATOR? USA, BEWARE

Fellow citizens of the USA:
Someone said of Donald Trump: "Don't take him literally, but take him seriously."
OK!  Got it.  Nothing he says with the words of the language that humans hear carries the habitual meaning to which we are accustomed.  Everything that comes out of his mouth has a meaning that the hearer has to interpret by using other means.  The following are understandings that come to me when I take him seriously, after blotting out the literal meaning.
(I have had some experience with this.  I experienced the coup of Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines while I was living there.)

Let me start with his goal:  I am in charge.  You will obey me because I deserve to be obeyed.  I alone am the deal maker who can and will solve the country's problems.  

We will build a wall so that there will be absolutely no cross pollination from the South.
We will exclude those whose religion we do not respect so that we will protect ourselves from their behavior and their ideas.
We will strengthen our depleted military.
We will bomb the shit out of those who don't act as we want them to.
We will leave NATO.
We will rip up the Trans-Pacific Trade agreement.
We will have good relations with those who can teach us how to make our citizens obey.
We will rebuild our infrastructure.
We will abet the behavior of the largest and most powerful enterprises who will protect us by controlling the economy to the detriment of the proletariat.
We will cut taxes.

This will be marked by the complete privatization of health care, pension benefits and other social services.

We will encircle ourselves with our family members and those who are loyal to the members of our intimate circle.
We will seek out the military elements who are of our ilk and assure them of powerful posts.
We will insulate ourselves from the tax structures that are a burden to be borne by the less fortunate than we.
We will capture and incarcerate those who do not obey our dictates.

I alone know and decide who those are who will be brought into the upper echelons of government.

Brothers and sisters, keep your ears and souls well pealed to what this election has wrought.

RUSSIA, ARE YOU LISTENING?

Click on this to get a good view of this situatiion.
“Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails.

TREASONOUS TRUMP
It is impossible to keep track of the "Mullarkey" (Cfr. Joe Biden) that this guy spews.  I am a person who does not trust politicians.  But then, since this specimen came on the scene, I am in the process of changing the mental image that I have of politicians.



The first step in the conversion process is that at least once a person learns how to manipulate the device, some good can become available.  Hillary Clinton is a politician.  She is a manipulative person.  She does things that make onlookers shake their heads and spit foul words.  But, she has shown that out of her efforts much good appears.  Does she lie?  Ha!  Do you remember her story about dodging bullets in Kosovo?  Now, of course we have the emails.  Everyone is camping on the emails.  Not me.  At least she was sending and receiving from friends and allies.  She was not knowingly inviting Russia to help her to subvert the interests of the USA.

Treasonous Trump is not a politician.  I am sure that he is also nefariously immoral and dishonest who offers no hope to anyone looking for something good to come as a result of his actions.  His latest shenanigan should put the cap on it for everyone...He invited Russia to get involved in the skulduggery of his presidential campaign.  If his buddy Vladi doesn't answer the call, maybe his necktie making host Xi Jinping can bail him out.  There is an old saying that my parents repeated to me often, "show me your friends and I'll know who you are."  
Bottom line, we just found out who Treasonous Trump's friends are so we should show him by our vote  where we think he would do better in life.
