At Least She’s Not Trump

I don’t want either Trump or Hillary to be president.  This election season’s candidates are probably the worst since I have come of voting age.  I think most of you feel the same way.  But if forced to choose between the lesser of two evils, it’s a no-brainer…

Hillary is the embodiment of everything wrong with politicians and a beacon to the corruption of our government.  She is possibly the only person in this country, with any likelihood of getting elected, that could make Obama look good by comparison.  The fact that she is not in prison is an affront to everything our country stands for.  The fact that she’s actually a nominee for president is unimaginable.  The fact that there are people who genuinely think she is a good candidate… is a thing of nightmares.  It keeps me up at night.  I would sooner light myself on fire than even contemplate voting for her.

Yet, all I keep hearing about her is “at least she’s not Trump”.  That’s the ONLY redeeming quality anyone seems to be able to come up with.  And all of her negative qualities?  Why, they just get completely dismissed with those words again – at least she’s not Trump.

It seems as though NOTHING else about her matters to the general populous (at least within the progressive/liberal sect).  It doesn’t matter how many FELONIES she commits.  It doesn’t matter that she buys and threatens her way out of getting tried for any of these illegal and even TREASONOUS acts.  It doesn’t matter that there is PROOF.  Because, at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t matter that she mishandled CONFIDENTIAL information of NATIONAL SECURITY.  It doesn’t matter that she destroyed the evidence to hide her crimes and evade prosecution.  It doesn’t matter that she’s repeatedly been caught in lies about the content of those emails.  It doesn’t matter that more and more incriminating evidence about her private server/email is coming to light on almost a daily basis (with her story changing EVERY time).

It doesn’t matter that the FBI is willing to ADMIT to the public that: “From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information,  which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.”  (From the Statement by FBI Director James B. Comey)

It doesn’t matter that EVERY other person who has ever mishandled classified information has, AT THE VERY LEAST, lost their security clearance (which would disqualify her from running for president).  It doesn’t matter that the majority of people who have mishandled classified information, even accidentally, not only lost their security clearance – they went to PRISON.  It doesn’t matter that the ONLY reason she is not one of those people, is she has the money and power to get away with it.

It doesn’t matter that this “best case scenario” that she was able to buy or threaten out of the FBI (where she got to keep her security clearance and avoid prosecution), STILL said to the American people that: “…  there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”   (From the Statement by FBI Director James B. Comey) Because (even if you are gullible enough to believe that conclusion) being “extremely careless with very sensitive, highly classified information” is JUST what you want in a president… At least as long as they’re not Trump.

It doesn’t matter that it was proven she has culpability in the deaths of our troops at Benghazi.  It doesn’t matter that she never apologized for it; to us or the families of the victims.  It doesn’t matter that she said the reason for this tragedy doesn’t make a difference.  It doesn’t matter that she was involved in the massive cover-up about the incident in order to help Obama get re-elected.  It doesn’t matter that she repeated lied to Congress, the American people, and to the parents of those who lost their lives.  It doesn’t matter that she couldn’t even keep her lies consistent hour by hour and day by day to at least come across as semi-believable… Because at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t matter that she’s repeatedly lied under oath; the very same crime that got her husband impeached when he was the president.  It doesn’t matter that in his case, he was only 12 Congressional votes shy of being REMOVED from office for his crime – it’s no reason that in Hillary’s case her crime should keep her from TAKING office… Because at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t matter that even though Hillary claims to be a champion of women, her track history has shown the exact opposite.  It doesn’t matter that while Hillary has repeatedly said “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported” – she clearly didn’t mean when her husband was the abuser.

It doesn’t matter that 10 different women have come forward to accuse Bill of rape, sexual assault, or sexual harassment.  It doesn’t matter that Hillary referred to these allegations as “bimbo eruptions” or that in interviews she said these women “would have a lot to answer for”.  It doesn’t matter that she did intensive background checks into these women to find ways to try to discredit their claims.  It doesn’t matter that several of these women even accused her of blackmail to get them to recant.  It doesn’t matter that her actions make her complicit in the sexual abuse of women… Because at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t matter that she’s bought and paid for.  It doesn’t matter that her political influence, decisions, and favors are for sale to ANYONE in ANY country for ANY reason – no matter HOW harmful or nefarious.   It doesn’t matter that all it takes is a generous donation to the Clinton Foundation or triple the normal rate for a speech from herself or her husband.

It doesn’t matter that simply the act of someone in her position accepting money from foreign governments is unconstitutional and disqualifies her from running for president.  Or at least it WOULD disqualify her, were she not able to buy and threaten her way out of that too.

It doesn’t matter that some of the countries that she accepts exorbitant amounts of money from, violate her every supposed ideal and platform.  Countries that destroy the environment, oppress women, enslave black people, murder homosexuals, and are even connected to terrorist organizations.  It doesn’t matter that many of the favors themselves also violate her supposed ideals and platforms.  It doesn’t matter that many of those favors have negatively affected BILLIONS of people all over the world.  It doesn’t matter that she has even put WEAPONS and NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY into the hands of our ENEMIES… for the right price.  It’s ok.  We can overlook that…  Because at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t matter that she is under investigation for FRAUD and funneling money through her charitable organization.  It doesn’t matter that it’s been proven that only 10% of donations to the Clinton Foundation has actually gone towards their intended purpose.  It doesn’t matter that she has basically been taking money out of the hands of people who DESPERATELY need it – all the while begging and swindling the American people into donating MORE to help those poor people… Money that really just goes into her pocket.  But seriously now, why should that matter?  Because at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t matter that an absurdly high number of people with incriminating evidence against her, the ones who couldn’t be bought off, died under mysterious circumstances soon after blowing the whistle.  While it hasn’t been proven she was involved, the sheer number of times it’s happened should give some credence to the possibility that she was.  But it’s not worth looking into… Because at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t matter to that she schemed, plotted, and broke laws in order to ruin Bernie Sanders’ chances at being the Democrat nominee.  It doesn’t matter that if it weren’t for the roll she played in this conspiracy, Bernie had a very real chance of winning the nomination… possibly by a landslide.  It doesn’t matter that Hillary had a great deal of responsibility in ruining his chances for become president.  The first candidate that millennials have EVER gotten excited over and in many cases was the very first person they ever voted for in their life.  It doesn’t matter that she dashed their dreams and destroyed their faith in the system.  It doesn’t matter that despite being a man of great integrity, Bernie Sanders flip-flopped on his stance to endorse Hillary (an act that is highly suspicious and suggests he may have been threatened or coerced) …  Because at least she’s not Trump.

It doesn’t even matter that she’s RACIST.  It doesn’t matter that she has supported and enacted legislature that marginalizes black people and perpetuates the poverty cycle in urban areas.  It doesn’t matter that when Bernie Sanders accused her of being racist during one of their debates, she didn’t even deny it or show any signs the comment upset or offended her.

It doesn’t matter that she referred to young black men as “super-predators” and said “we need to bring them all to heel” (a command used to get dogs to fall in line with their masters).

It doesn’t matter that she said “All Lives Matter” (a phrase widely considered racist and demeaning by the left) in a primarily black church.

It doesn’t matter that she took part in an on stage, scripted joke where the punchline was that Mayor Bill de Blasio was late with his endorsement because he “was running on colored peoples’ time” (the obvious racist connotation being that black people are lazy and slow).

It doesn’t matter that she has casually used the phrase “off the reservation” (a wildly offensive term that references the prison camps, created by the US government in the 19th century, known as “reservations” that Native American’s were not permitted to step foot off of without the permission of their white captors) to describe both Donald Trump and other difficult and controlling men she has had to deal with.

It doesn’t matter that she called Paul Fray a “fucking Jew bastard”.

It doesn’t matter that she has publicly made many other racist statements that are significantly WORSE than anything Trump has EVER said…  Because at least she’s not Trump.  (Go Figure.)

But no one wants to hear about all that.  And when forced to hear it, people are very quick to write it off as “conspiracy theory nonsense”, even though a quick internet search PROVES every single thing I’ve mentioned.  No one wants to know the TRUTH about her.  Because once you know the truth, it makes it REALLY hard to keep parroting “at least she’s not Trump”.

Keep in mind, everything I have mentioned is just SOME of the ILLEGAL and TREASONOUS acts that *I* know she has been involved in.  Who knows how many things have yet to come to light or how much worse those things might be.  I’m not going to bother arguing all the reasons I hate her over her policies, platforms, “achievements”, and beliefs – because they are matters of opinion and not FACTS.

I’m sure a lot of you want to fire back with a whole host of reasons why I should hate Trump and he shouldn’t be president.  Blah blah blah.  And blah blah blah.  Some of it may be completely true, some of it may be inaccurate, some of it may be matters of opinion.  But I’m not going to agree with nor try to refute anything you have to say about him – because, as I stated in my opening sentence: I DON’T WANT TRUMP TO BE PRESIDENT!  So, I don’t need to debate his merits.  There’s really only one thing I need to say in Trump’s defense: none of his negative qualities involve an act of treason or something that would disqualify him from running for president.  So if Trump does get elected as our next president, I will scream from the rooftops: AT LEAST HE’S NOT HILLARY!

Transgender Policies and Practices “Guidance” Letter to Schools

Obama has really outdone himself this time.  I think this just might be the single worst act in his reign of terror against our country.  Even *I* didn’t expect him to be capable of this level great wrong.  No matter what side of the transgendered bathroom debate you are on, you SHOULD be outraged by this.

To take it upon himself to ORDER every school in this country to grant their under-age students access to the restroom AND locker room/shower of their choice… or else he will STEAL their federal funding –  right out of the hands of all the CHIDLREN that money was allotted for.  To use OUR children as PAWNS in his real life game of chess.  To threaten to steal our children’s EDUCATION and FUTURE from them as a method of strong-arming the adults to conform to HIS morality.  He may as well have ordered the ENTIRE WORLD for all the right he has to make his demands.  And then he has the gall to mock us by calling his demands “guidance”.

It’s wrong on so many different levels that I scarcely know how to begin expressing it.  I feel like my insides could explode just thinking about it.  And ANYONE who feels good about this “guidance” letter… either hasn’t taken the time to actually THINK about its implications or has something SEVERERLY wrong with them.

I suppose point number one is simply that there is NO cause so noble that it is justified in being achieved through totalitarian means.  Threatening to steal one person’s rights to gain rights for another does wrong to BOTH.  We have a system of government that is designed to speak for THE PEOPLE – safeguarded by using MANY DIFFERENT elected representatives and tiers of representatives, who speak for us by deciding all laws with a MAJORITY ruling.  They answer to us, not the other way around.  It’s what keeps change moving at the speed fitting with society’s evolution.  And it’s what keeps this country from becoming a dictatorship. 

Skipping that process robs you of the most precious thing you have as an American – your VOICE.  Regardless of which side of the debate you are on, your opinion was never even considered.  Your vote was worthless… thrown into the trash without even being looked at.  The OPPOSITE of Democracy.

You could try to throw (the wildly unconstitutional) “Executive Order” clause at me… but what you may not realize is that this is NOT an Executive Order.  It’s just “guidance” –  merely a suggestion.  A suggestion with a BIG threat behind not being taken.  And it’s NOT a threat of proper legal action through our judicial system for breaking a law… noooo, that would be justifiable.  It’s a threat of the GOVERNMENT breaking the law to victimize YOU if you don’t comply.  Sounds a bit like the Mafia extorting money out of you for “protection” don’t ya think? 

But you might not care about any of that.  You might just be thrilled that you got what you wanted… THIS time.  But how would you feel if those same methods of “leadership” were applied to causes you DON’T agree with?

There is a VERY good chance that after the next election President TRUMP will be our Commander-in-chief.  If you are happy about this “guidance” letter, I suspect you DETESTE Donald Trump and everything he stands for.  So tell me… how would you feel if HE forced his morality upon you and your children under threat for disobedience?  Would it still be ok then?  Because you can’t pick and choose.  If you think it would be wrong for Trump to do it in the future, then you must acknowledge that it IS wrong for Obama to do it now.

Many people are trying to justify this “guidance” letter as merely enforcing Title VII.  I’m seeing “Title VII” get tossed around the internet like a catchphrase that means “I’m right and you’re a bigot”.  Obviously, those people have NO IDEA what Title VII entails (they probably don’t even know what document it’s from).

Title VII of Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination by covered EMPLOYERS on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. 

Derf! *FACEPALM*

So anyway, I suspect what they WOULD have said (if they had bothered to educate themselves before speaking so authoritatively on the subject) is Title IX – which says that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

But let’s be clear on this – it says NOTHING about schoolchildren with penises having the protected legal right to GET NAKED and SHOWER WITH schoolchildren with vaginas (or vice versa). 

So long as transgendered students are not being denied their right to get an education or participate in school activities, simply because they are transgendered, Title IX is NOT being violated.

And if Title IX is not being violated, then that makes this “guidance” letter ENTIRELY NEW GROUND!  Which means that ENTIRELY NEW LEGISLATURE must be passed through the PROPER CHANNELS before anything can be ENFORCED.

Now that’s we’ve established that no government entity has the right to make such a demand without voting on new legislature… How we talk about why we SHOULDN’T pass this sort of legislature, ok?

YES, transgendered people should be able to use whichever RESTROOM they are the most comfortable using – I honestly don’t understand how that doesn’t go without saying.  It’s still PRIVATE.  You have no idea what genitals someone has beneath their clothing unless YOU behave in an inappropriate and unlawful manner and PEAK over/under the stall at them.  No one is getting hurt by them using the facilities for their intended purpose.  But THEY just might get SEVERLY hurt (by bigoted people) if forced to use what is OBVIOUSLY not the appropriate restroom for them.  Debate won, get over it.

But this “guidance” letter isn’t just about restrooms, it’s also about shared locker rooms and showers.  What’s wrong with that (only and idiot would ask)?

If someone exposes their genitals to you without solicitation, it’s known as “indecent exposure” and it’s a FEDERAL CRIME that will land them on the sex offenders registry.  Even though that person didn’t lay a hand on anyone, they victimized the person/people they exposed themselves to.  They made that person or group of people feel uncomfortable, powerless, and VIOLATED.  Because in our society, genitalia are considered “private parts” – only to be seen/shown when it is EXPECTED and WANTED.  So anytime it is UN-expected or UN-wanted, it is psychologically damaging. 

So… if it’s wrong when someone who is NOT transgendered forces you to see their genitalia… why on earth would it be ok for people who ARE transgendered to do it?

Before you even THINK about saying there’s no “force” in this scenario, let me remind you that you are REQUIRED BY LAW to attend school and GOVERNMENTAL education standards REQUIRE you to take gym class as part of the curriculum.  Which means, since the issuance of that letter – the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS REQUIRING YOUR UNDER-AGE CHILDREN TO GET NAKED IN FRONT OF, AND SEE NAKED, OTHER CHILDREN WITH THE OPPOSITE GENDER’S GENITALIA (or else no education for ANYONE – INCLUDING the transgendered students).

If you are the sort of hypocritical asshole who thinks that ONLY minorities have rights, you probably want to argue with me right now by telling me that in a locker room/shower setting, exposing your genitalia IS expected.  Everyone else there is getting naked, why are you singling out the transgendered people – you transphobic monster?!

Well, if locker rooms and showers weren’t segregated by gender – you might have a point.  But they ARE segregated by gender.  Which means you EXPECT everyone else around you to have the SAME genitalia as yourself.  And you are depending on that for comfort in the extremely uncomfortable position of shared nudity in these settings.  Otherwise, there’s no point to segregate them AT ALL.  There should just be ONE locker room and ONE shower that ALL students share, regardless of gender OR gender identity.  (Would you be ok with that?  Keep in mind that would involve transgendered students suffering the discomfort of changing and showering with people who are their BIRTH gender!)

Offering transgendered students a PRIVATE changing and shower facility is the OBVIOUS solution to this situation – yet it has REPEATEDLY been rejected and turned into high powered legal battles.  Why?  Because it MIGHT make some of the 0.03% of students that are transgendered FEEL bad.  Fuck how the rest of the students feel, only the feelings of minorities matter… at least that is what Obama, his administration, and most of the Democrat Party seem to think.

In the locker room/shower setting, if someone takes off their clothing and they DON’T have the same genitalia as what’s marked on the door – it is EVERY BIT as unexpected and unwanted as some stranger flashing you in the park.  And now they just saw YOU naked too, but you didn’t consent to that!  Everyone who saw you was SUPPOSED to have all the same parts!  It’s a double-whammy to your psyche.  Their lack of malicious intent does nothing to prevent you from FEELING violated.  In fact, you may feel even MORE violated since if you express your feelings, instead of being treated with sympathy, people act like there is something wrong with you.  (I imagine that it’s a little bit like a less extreme version of how any woman who was raped by her husband, before the law recognized that a woman CAN be raped by her husband, must have felt…)

But a penis or vagina don’t look any less like a penis or vagina just because of how the person it’s connected to feels on the inside.  As long as you keep it COVERED, it’s NOBODY else’s business which you have.  But if you’re going to EXPOSE it, you’ve just MADE it the business of everyone around you.  So unless EVERYONE in the room FREELY gives their permission otherwise, exposed genitals need to match the sign on the door.  Pretty simple and easy to follow.  And most importantly, FAIR.  For EVERYONE. 

Fair… for… everyone?  I know, what a novel concept?  One that is apparently far too evolved and progressive for our society to wrap its head around.

Honestly, I have SO MANY more points still to make on this topic, but writing this is EXHAUSTING.  If I haven’t successfully made my case to you from what I have already said… quite frankly, you are too stupid and closed-minded to EVER see this rationally.  Talking to you would be a waste of everyone’s time & energy – you should just go fuck yourself.
