Is it time to abandon Donald Trump

I am sure that most of you have heard the audio release of an exchange between Donald Trump and Billy Bush back in 2005 when they were talking about a married woman.  I have heard political leaders saying that this is the last straw.  The present speaker of the house even cancelled an event with Trump because he was so disgusted with him. I heard the audio myself and I have to say that it sounded like a couple of adolescent boys talking about one of the cheer leaders.  Presidential? Absolutely not!?

Now I am going to admit something to you.  I have said much worse things about members of the opposite sex.  Of course I was not a public figure and when I said those things no one was recording me.  Now perhaps you could be honest with yourself as well.  If you are a man think back to sometime in your life when you were talking with a friend about some woman that you found attractive but unattainable.  Did you perhaps refer to some section of her anatomy with less than pristine words?  If you are a woman have you never in your life talked with a girlfriend about a man that you were enamored with and perhaps said things about the way he was hung in words that you might not use in front of your mother?

Now I do not think more highly about Donald Trump because he had that conversation, but at the same time it is not going to stop me from voting for him.  His words were poorly thought out and perhaps makes him appear juvenile but I doubt there is a person on the face of the earth that has not said similar things when they thought it was just between them and a friend.  If anything it makes him a little more human than the hypocrites that are attacking him at this time.

Now let’s take a look at the other side of the coin.  There were also revelations about Hillary Clinton that came out yesterday.  One of them was where she said that she had two sets of talking points, one for when she was in private and one when she was in public.  One of the talking points she had in private was that she believes that we should live with open borders and with free trade throughout the world.   Imagine with the problems we have with terrorists throughout the world what would happen if she got her way and our borders were opened up so that anyone could travel any where with no restrictions.  Can you see where terrorists would flow across our borders?  How long do you think you would be able to enjoy the freedoms you have now if bombs are going off in every city in the country?

And how about this idea of free trade?  Do any of you remember Ross Perot talking about NAFTA?  He said “Do you hear that wooshing sound?  That is you jobs being sucked south of the border.”  And he was absolutely right.  NAFTA has been the biggest cause of jobs being exported than any other trade deal we have ever had.

So when you go into the voting booth in a few weeks, ask yourself.  Can I live better with Donald Trump who sometimes says and does crass things or with Hillary Clinton who wants to open up our borders to millions of terrorists?  Do you want such a woman appointing up to three more Supreme Court Justices?  If she is elected it is not just a problem for the next four years but potentially a problem for the next forty years.  In fact I believe she will completely destroy our way of life and we will never get it back.

I implore you to vote for Donald Trump.

Facebook

If you are checking this blog this morning you are probably expecting one of my giveaway posts.  You know the ones, a free chapter or a free sample or a free story.  And don’t give up.  Those types of posts will return.

But this morning is one of my I need to vent, posts.  You see almost daily now someone on my Facebook page will post something that starts with, “I want to see who is reading my posts, not just skimming them”.  And then they go on to tell me that I must read every word and then comment and copy and paste it to my timeline.  Some of them even threaten to unfriend me if I don’t follow their instructions.

Well, hell, I too would like people to read my posts.  That is after all why I take the time to post them.  But if I threatened to unfriend people that did not read or comment on my posts I would not have any friends or followers on Facebook or Twitter.  Of course I have no idea how many followers I have on twitter because I have no idea how to use the service.  I have an account but if it were not linked to this blog I would never send a tweet.  So If you actually got this far in this post and know how to use Twitter please feel free to clue me in on exactly how to use it.

What might be a better idea for those that want people to read their posts, might be to actually post something that people might like to read.  Right now politics is the “in” thing.  Of course if you choose to comment on politics be prepared for some type of fire storm in return.

The other types of posts that really tick me off are the ones where someone tells me how bad they are feeling.  Some of them sound almost suicidal.  But for some reason they never tell me what is so wrong with their life that they are on the brink of ending it all.  Now if it is because they or someone dear to them has cancer or some other deadly disease,  let us know that.  Those of us who are religious in nature could then at least offer prayers and those that are not could at least commiserate with them.  But don’t stand on the bridge staring at the water below and not at lease let me know why you are there.

If you are an author and you aren’t making any money from your efforts, I will definitely commiserate with you.  I know exactly how you feel.  Of course I won’t be able to tell you how to right the ship since mine is already on the rocks.  What I can tell you is to figure out why you are writing in the first place.  My first book was written for my own pleasure and to get an idea out of my head.  But low and behold people started telling me how good the book was and so I got another idea in m head that I could make money off of it.  Now some 30 books later I discover that was only a fantasy.  So I have gone back to writing for my own enjoyment and hopefully for the enjoyment of a few of you folks.  I give away a little of my books hoping to hear a few kind words from the people that read them.  And I am starting to write short stories that I can post completely on line free of charge.  If anyone is interested let me know.
