WHY HILLARY CLINTON DOESN'T REPRESENT WOMEN WELL

There's no doubt that a woman can be a good, and even great, president, but I don't count Hillary Clinton among those women. Hillary, and many other so-called "feminists" of her generation suffer from seriously misguided views on what it truly means to be a strong and independent woman. They actually diminish the meaning of womanhood by embracing the position that the only way a woman can truly be strong and independent is by being more like a man, and Hillary has spent her entire life doing just that - trying to show America how much like a man she can be, and to the point where all vestiges of femininity are now nonexistent. 
.
That doesn't promote the competence, intelligence, and insight of  the female character, it suggests that women should abandon the "inferior" qualities that makes them innately special, and take on the "superior" qualities of menThat's backward thinking.  That's like a Black man thinking that the only way he can be equal to a White man is to become Archie Bunker. But Barack Obama has clearly shown that a Black man can be equal to a White man, and more, while remaining true to his nature; and Michelle Obama has demonstrated the very same point with respect to female competence - let us not forget, Michelle used to be Barack's boss and mentor, but she has no problem with being highly feminine, and highly home oriented. Michelle doesn't feel the need to prove that she's as competent as a man, because she's comfortable in her womanhood, so she knows she is.

DONALD TRUMP IS A BAD JOKE, BUT HE SERVES A USEFUL PURPOSE - HE REVEALS HOW CONSERVATIVES REALLY THINK

Donald Trump - an ignorant, mean-spirited, xenophobic, and self-serving racist who's willing to tell any lie he can conjure up to promote his own interest. That makes him the quintessential Republican, and that's exactly why he's leading the Republican polls. 
.
So the Trump phenomenon says it all.  While the GOP establishment claims to be distancing themselves from him - and they are - it's not because they disagree with what he's saying, it's because he's either too dumb, or too self-serving, to realize he's not suppose to be saying it out loud.  The Republican establishment has been saying  the exact same things for years, but in code and with a wink.  So if America is perceptive, this Trump episode should bring down the Republican Party for decades, or at least get them out the way long enough for the country to get back on it's feet, because while they're  constantly giving lip-service to wanting to help the average American, an unequivocal historic record clearly demonstrates that has never been the case, and not only that,  it has never even been a part of the GOP's agenda.

A MESSAGE TO BARACK

You've faced bigger challenges than any president in the history of this nation, and with less congressional support.  Yet, in spite of that, you've not only endured, but excelled.  You've pulled this nation from the jaws of certain disaster, and you've had no scandals, no loss of faith, and you and your beautiful wife and family have perfectly represented everything that America professes to hold dear. That says it all.

Regardless of what your detractors say, you are a great man - one of this nation's greatest - and again, history will document that. In light of how horribly Black people have been treated by this country over the centuries, how ironic is it that it took a Black man to save it?  Thus, I see you as a message from God, and if America is wise, it'll listen.

JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA - IDIOT IN A ROBE

Symbols play a very important role in our society, because uniforms, badges, robes and such help us to identify the various roles that people play to hold our society together. That's why it is so important that people who are given symbols of authority represent those symbols well, and it's also important for the public to always remain aware of the psychological impact that symbols have on our psyche.

AMERICA IS LITERALLY DYING OF A LACK OF CHARACTER, INTEGRITY, AND MORAL SUBSTANCE

Most Americans have embraced a philosophy of "go-along-to get-along," and that's a philosophy that has never served minorities, or the working class, well. It's a philosophy that only serves to maintain the status quo. So if you're at the bottom of the ladder, not being paid a living wage, and being treated unjustly, helping to maintain the status quo virtually guarantees that you'll remain in that condition. On the other hand, if you're one of those lucky few who have managed to accumulate a few of the finer things in life, you're doing a gross disservice to all those people of high moral character and integrity who came before you and made your lifestyle possible.
