A Mother's Complaint About Trump's "Cynical Use" of Benghazi

New York Times
Letters To the Editor
July 22, 2016

To the Editor:

As Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens' mother, I am writing to object to any mention of his name and death in Benghazi, Libya, by Donald Trump's campaign and the Republican Party.

I know for certain that Chris would not have wanted his name or memory used in that connection.
I hope that there will be an immediate and permanent stop to this opportunistic and cynical use by the [Trump] campaign.

Universal Body Cameras-Good for the Police, the Public, and Taxpayers

High quality, wide angle, secure body cameras on all law enforcement officers would be beneficial to all sides of the present police brutality vs. police protection issue.

In the highest profile cases that now cause division between the police and some members of the communities that they are entrusted to protect, high definition, high impact, secure body cameras would have given clear evidence as to whether the police or suspect(s) involved broke the law.

The greatest revolutionary act in the history of humanity

Will happen this week. It has long been pointed out that the first social classes in human society were male and female.

It has also often been pointed out that slavery in the U.S. was often legally defined and justified as being not unlike the position of wives. Basically, women after marriage ceased to exist as anything separate from their husbands. They had no right to own property, control of their own bodies, their children, or their salaries.

The violence of video games is socially specific to the society it effects.

The gimmick of 'hell' and the mistaken overvaluation of thanatophobia

If a person stating membership to a religion has any doubt of that religion, they ultimately are not comfortable with what coping mechanism for the end of life (by natural causes). A second life, a next life, a reincarnation back to Earth are all similar delusions of grandeur rhetorics. "So you say theres something after this?

Planet of the Apes..? Reply to Hillary's eMail after She selected Kaine for VP.

Dear Secretary Clinton/DNC, Remember the end of "Planet of the Apes" where Charlton (NRA) Heston sees the Statue of Liberty buried on the beach? Thank You for spitting in our faces by selecting a pro-trade/TPP, corporate Tool like Tim Kaine, instead of Liz Warren, or another True Progressive. Your arrogance is like our next president's. Thank you for securing the election of president Trump.

Ben Jealous just said that Tim Kaine in known for wanting to Deregulate Wallstreet? There you go. That's a good reason for HRC to pick him as VP!

I'm not surprised by this. Ben also stated that the NAACP has NOT been asked to endorse HRC!

Watch the interview on R. Maddow show 7/22.

I need not say more.

No Contributions for Political Fools

Every day now I get e-mails from various parties soliciting contributions to the establishment Democratic Party. Here is my response. I suggest you consider a similar answer. Maybe they will finally listen if they hear the truth over and over again.

It's the Ecomomy, Stupid!? / The Establishment Loses/ Global Ramifications of Trump win?

Guns & typical Democratic talking points are not going to cut it. If the Democrats don't pull their heads out of their bubbles and give US some real, anti-establishment, plans against inequality we're all in real trouble.

Anyone with any sense knows Rebublicans are wholly owned by Corporate Billionaires, but Trump is an unknown -- and Anti-establisment! -- quantity.

Trump's DONNY DEAREST speech

Last night, Donald J. Trump gave his Donny Dearest speech. AMERICA!!! YOU WILL GIVE ME THE RESPECT I DESERVE!!!

Tactical response to Trump's acceptance speech

I so agree with Thom that there are independents, especially white men that will eat up the dog meat rhetoric, lies, and inaccuracies Trump spewed in his acceptance speech. My friends in Iowa, a battleground state, will eat this stuff up.

How Funding the Vote, Schools & Police Could Change America

One of the most amazing things about Donald Trump as a presidential candidate is his ability to say something interesting or at least hint at something interesting when he appears to be saying absolutely nothing.
