Upbringing – the conditions, environment, examples, and experiences a person is raised in goes a long way in defining the positions they take as adults and their personal philosophy.
That can be a good thing in that it can lead to worthy values or a bad thing leading to a sense of entitlement or even prolonged anger
I grew up in the midst of abject poverty and the oppressive policies directed at indigenous people.
With the process of growing up and better able to understand things anger became a part of the personal philosophy that influenced my opinions.
I remain angry about some things but mature enough to not allow anger to interfere with what I believe is common sense – I’m not going to run around in circles biting my tail.
Common sense, experience, and everything I see convinces me the conservative agenda is uncaring, dispassionate, and in effect practices what can only be considered crimes against humanity.
I imagine with the previous blog, Asteroid Trump, there may have been a liberal or two who chortled and rubbed their hands together in glee while conservatives brooded, wrapped themselves in the flag and the “wisdom” of The Donald, and went on about “family values”.
Not so fast, being the equal opportunity offender I am when it comes to the chicanery of politicians and the opinions I hold the reverse now becomes the way of it – now liberals can write my name on a piece of paper and tear it up while embracing the “wisdom” of Teflon Hillary.
Here’s a link to a discussion taking place related to the Trump blog that may serve to flesh out where I’m coming from:
Now on to Teflon Hillary…..
Former president and now deceased Ronald Reagan is often referred to as being teflon coated and rap master Ronnie, but increasingly as more comes to light he ain’t got nothing on Teflon Hillary Clinton whose a rap artist in her own right nor her equally teflon coated husband Bill and the Clinton Foundation.
Every time anything has come up related to either of them or the foundation Teflon Hillary has mounted the podium to declare it’s all some conservative conspiracy to smear their good name and drone on about the lessons and values mama taught her.
I find that particularly amusing because if a good name is to be smeared it’s necessary to have one to begin with.
So far the Clinton mob hasn’t attempted to declare the ongoing investigation into her emails as an FBI conspiracy but if it really starts to hit the fan it won’t surprise me if they do – another right wing conspiracy and the feds unwitting dupes.
Character isn’t what’s important here, for her supporters it’s all about IT’S HILLARY!!!!!!!!!! and gee we can elect the first woman president.
Personally I feel it’s time for the country to break another barrier and elect a woman for president, a qualified woman.
One need only look around to understand women in power can be every bit as ruthless and conniving as a man can. Which translates to not just any man or woman should be elected – I believe Hillary has shown she can connive with the best of them, her version of gender equality.
Nor does it seem to matter to the DNC as they know the corporate game as well as their conservative counterparts and the bottom line is it’s all about what’s good for business.
When it comes to a sense of entitlement Teflon Hillary is the Leona Helms of politics, the world is her oyster and to hell with the little people.
Depending on what eventuates as the result of the current investigation Hillary may get the same rude awakening Leona did – for sure her supporters are so locked in it would take an indictment to get them to even blink, and even then they probably wouldn’t break ranks. They instead would probably claim it evidence of sexism or yet another conspiracy.
Her supporters won’t even consider the amount of money the foundation has received for access and favors from countries like Saudi Arabia who beat rape victims or stone an accused adulteress to death while Hillary publicly drones on about she’s “proud” of the “work” the foundation does.
Maybe her supporters ought to ask themselves how they would feel if it were their daughter, sister, or mother being beaten with a whip or stoned?
Maybe they can explain how such things empower women?
Or are they willing to dismiss it as taking place elsewhere?
Maybe they ought to ask themselves if the blood of a child or loved one killed in a foreign war translates to a business opportunity as Hillary advised her corporate cronies?
More to the point maybe they should ask themselves if indeed Hillary is “The One’?
But then it’s American politics, a carnival of denial and blind allegiance.
The rope a dope staged steel cage match currently featuring Hillary and Trump.
