Dear God Man, Don’t Vote For Trump: Updated

Yesterday I posted a blog and video decrying the man that is Trump as a Republican political candidate. At the time I thought about giving a content warning due to crude delivery of the facts. I hope I did not offend, and will look at my political commentary a bit more seriously in the future. Even though this site is available for me to be a little more funny, the video was uncalled for. Here is the statement I replaced for the video:

“[The video was removed because even though I agree with the instances John Oliver brings up, it may be deemed offensive to people who are looking for sound political commentary and he uses the same tactics I find so offensive in Donald Trump. I only posted this because I believe John Oliver has the means to make what so many people are ignoring about Trump, because they are ignorant and/or do not want to educate themselves about things beyond the hollow promises he is making. Even though I knew of the things John Oliver speaks about, his delivery brings the argument down to an immature level beyond what political discourse should be. Please forgive me.]”

Dear God Man, Don’t Vote for Trump

I just came across this video that I had heard about during the day today. It is about 20 minutes that you need to spend watching if you are in anyway thinking that Donald Trump is the man that could be our next president. Truthfully, I already knew all this, except for the Drumpf part, but John Oliver delivers it in a way that it completely deserves. Watch it! I’m looking at you Floyd, I’m looking at you.

I have been darn surprised by the fact that so many people are endorsing this joke of a quasi-man, but there are the few who are coming out when they would have never said anything about politics before. And there are many others. I don’t think it’ll do anything for the way this is going on this “Super Tuesday” election. The reason I have come out so against him myself, is that he is so far from what I believe represents conservatism, decency, truth, character, that I have to speak up. Sure most of those qualities are not normally used to describe any political candidate these days, but I don’t want to have one person believing that since I am conservative, think that I am associated with this steam-roller candidacy. It is all God ordained I am sure, but my feeble mind can’t imagine the loss our society has suffered since the election of Bill Clinton, and I voted for that guy! Only the first time though. I remember my Nana saying to the television during the Clinton hearings about Monica, “Just leave him alone. What he does in his private life doesn’t matter to the good he does as president.” And then there was Bush II. People actually said that they didn’t want his faith to play a part in the decisions he makes for this country. I just about ripped my hair out at that point. Then we get a guy who runs on hope and change, and all our hope is gone and he didn’t change a thing. Politics, politics, Politics! Yarrgghhh! That is why we have Trump and I guess he is the candidate we deserve. Whomever we vote for in office this year, I vote for the one who will finish of America and our culture the quickest.

But I digress… Lord, You are our God. You are the one I depend on no matter what trials I myself am put through or the country You so graciously allowed me to be in at this moment in time, is put through. For you honor your people with trust. You give us this moment to spread the word about You. As I said before, so I’ll say again, there is no man who can offer any true hope, peace and security such as You can my God. I give you the glory whether you allow Donald Trump to be the man on the Republican ticket or not. You love him Lord as You love me. You love him in his shallow surety, and me in my prideful anxiety. You created each of us. He will have a great awakening Lord if he is to proceed all the way to the white house, that this leadership role is not what he expected it to be. Humble him Lord as You humble me everyday. And if there is another candidate who gets to the white house Lord, I pray that they bring Your name there. At least that there is honor and decency and character spoken of again. That those words are not just by-words, but that they carry weight and meaning. Humble Your servants Lord. Humble them once again.

Clickbait Spoilers: Dog Eats Baby

Clickbait: Maybe you like them, maybe you don’t. Either way, you probably don’t want to watch a 6-minute video just to find out what is the best way to defrost your windshield. I’m here to help. From my own “that one site” page, I am clicking through, just for you.

download (2)The One Weird Trait That Predicts Whether You’re a Trump Supporter.

The Trait: Authoritarianism. The Site: Politico. The Story: I don’t really know a lot of people who think that Trump is a good idea for this country. I mean, c’mon! He is a business man who manages people and gets rid of them when they become too cumbersome. He is a reality star who pulls no punches. He is a man who manages everything around him and will “destroy you” if you disagree with him. If he is a conservative, he makes me want to be a Democrat. In fact, I’m going to share a little link I came across the other day that talks about how Trump answers a question, and you see very well who he is, or who he believes he is. I hate the idea of this man being president some day, and I completely agree with the writer of this article. I don’t know if Politico is conservative or liberal, but at least they gave the statement that “not all Republicans are authoritarians.” This race will soon drive me crazy if I get anymore up in this wash of garbage I hear from this man. And the biggest reason I’m posting this, is because the word needs to be spread about how dangerous he is. Those who support him might not hear, but we gotta tell it anyway.

UntitledThis German Shepherd Has Never Seen a Baby Before. Now Watch When the Two Meet, My Jaw DROPPED!

What happens: The dog eats the baby. Seriously: What the heck do you think happens? That some guy is dropping videos of a dog attacking a baby, or walking away apathetically? Yes, I know the internet survives on cute animal and baby videos, and animal and baby videos just about give everyone a cute heart-attack, but do we need to be tricked into clicking on this link? Just freaking say a darn dog plays with a freaking baby who is laughing hysterically. Bam! Instant click through. And really, do you need to out-n-out lie that this dog has never seen a baby before? Ugh, this kind of headline tires me. It is one thing to trick someone into watching a 10-minute video to see why water boils, it is another to troll us into something everyone mindlessly watches anyway! Either way, we can replace the “German Shepherd” with Donald Trump, and then have him eat the baby? That is happening in some alternate world somewhere. The site: littlethings – stay away from these evil trolls.
