- I'm not deplorable. I am aware of Donald Trump's faults and scandals. Do you know why I am aware of them? Because he hasn't tried to hide them.
- He is the lesser of two evils, so to speak, because I don't really think he is evil.
- He recognizes the problems in this nation, and he has a plan to deal with them; his solutions may not be popular, but they are workable. Say what you will about Donald Trump, this is a man who, when he says he is going to get something done, he gets it done. A good example of this was a government building project in the city where Trump lives, the project was getting bogged down by various things, Trump told the developers, let me take this over, I will get the job done, and guess what? He got the project done.
- When he went to Mexico and met with their president, when he met with Putin, say what you will, these leaders respected him, he is building alliances. When the flood happened here in Baton Rouge, Trump flew here to help and encourage people. In those three events, I saw a President.
THE CONVERSATION ABOUT IMMIGRATION POLICIES
The conversation about immigration policies should not be one-sided. Every person in American should be concerned and engaged in conversation about building a wall along the U.S. - Mexican boarder. Immigration reform is critical for a number of factors, but it is disconcerting that there are “Americans” who are still focused on the division as opposed to embracing diversity. However, this isn’t a new story, the game of dividing and conquering has been a tactic of the oppressor since the beginning of time.
The annual Curia — meeting between Pope Francis and the senior governing cardinals, bishops and priests of the Vatican, the Roman Curia, —for the Christmas message. This year, Pope Francis handed out a little coal in the form of a list of spiritual diseases he’s seen among leadership and how a little bit of Christmas spirit might help to make things brighter.
His Christmas message delivered a blow to the Roman Curia, with the harshest warning against gossip mongers, he said, “It is the disease of cowards, who do not have the courage to speak upfront and so talk behind one’s back. Watch out against the terrorism of gossip!” he said. The purpose of the message is to help heal the governing body of its diseases during the Christmas season.
According to CNN, Pope Francis suggested that it would be helpful to the Vatican bureaucrats to have a catalog of their illnesses beginning with "this disease of feeling immortal or indispensable."
The list of diseases included “spiritual Alzheimer’s,” “working too hard,” a feeling of being “immortal,” "indifference to others," and “funereal face,” a concept Francis referred to this month, urging followers to prepare for Christmas with “joy,” instead of dourness or anxiety.
It is more than painful to see a woman knocked unconscious and dragged across an elevator floor seemingly lifeless by any man who professes his love for her. It should go without saying that what Ray Rice did inside an Atlantic City Hotel Elevator in February, deserved more than a modicum of criticism and scorn. However, it does not deserve the continued media lynching and propaganda peddling of various feminists groups with their own biased agendas. He shouldn’t be the poster-boy, nor the face of domestic violence. As his wife Janay painfully wrote, “THIS IS OUR LIFE! What don’t you all get?”
