    C.D. - Obama = Clinton = Saunders (Are things THAT Bad?) (yes)

    in Islam

    ASA,


    I recall, when the GOP had fielded 16 contenders for the POTUS, it became the butt of jokes from a cross-section of personalities, most notably, Barack Obama, yet ironically, this may have been the  been the best example inclusive, participatory democracy.


    Of course over time, the field has greatly narrowed to just 2 serious contenders, with Kasich, Bush and Rubio being the holders-on; and I rue over demise of Dr. Ben Carson. So today, it’s Trump and Crux, which has proven to be a most acrimonious relationship.


    Yet, on the Democrat side, we have a deck which includes a non-descript former governor and a 74-year-old senator.


    No one else in the Democratic Party desires to become the nest president of the USA? What’s the real reason, Joe Biden decided not to run, after reportedly, his late son, Beau, on his deathbed, encouraged him to do so?


    Of course, we hear the ‘age card” being thrown about, but in all fairness, a President Sanders would be over 80 years old, at the end of two terms (there have been presidents who have opted not to seek a second term). But, the point is made, in deference to a woman, at 68, who clearly not a “spring chicken”. Trump is 69 years old.


    What I find most interesting, is how the deck has been so well stacked to assure a Hillary Clinton victory (i.e. no REAL opposition) – the most glaring example of AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, based on gender AND race.


    But, this begs the question, “will the black community swoon again, for another “Messiah”? Will we finally begin to THINK, in assessing candidates? I dread the very notion of a repeat of the ideological letdown of 2008 and 2012.


    Will the reminder of scriptural standards be met with indifference or hostility, as it was and is, when it comes to Obama?


    Tune in this Saturday; invite your friends and neighbors to CRITICAL DISCOURSE.

    The Grand Scheme of Things~


    THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY meets
    "Stranger Than Fiction," in which two humans are accidentally sent to another universe and land in the middle of a story that is being written by a supreme being who has just come out of one of history's longest bouts of writer's block.

    The author, Bill Friday, decides that his novel will play out on a giant ball of dirt that he calls The Earth, which, in his language means ‘profit making business venture.’ The presence of the two humans on the barren planet, however, has dramatic and historic consequences for The Earth, and
    their existence threatens to ruin, not only the entire plot, but possibly Bill's career as well.

    “Clever, insightful, and delightfully deranged, THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS takes our universe and imposes gravity upon it, so it can be turned upside down. It is an enjoyable story about someone who is unfit to be creating life—a cool comeback comedy that competently combines cosmological conjecture, courageous career courses, and coping with creative commons conflicts.”
    –Logan J. Hunder, author of WITCHES BE CRAZY

    Fighting for Freedom in America: Memoir of a "Schizophrenia" and Mainstream Cultural Delusions~


      When anonymous mental health worker Clyde Dee finds himself working in a Section 8 housing project that is notorious for drug dealing, he mysteriously is compelled to break the codes of standard drug war conduct. Uncanny threats and coincidences and desire for justice drive him to question the pillars of his profession and his own wellness until he decides to go off a low dose of anti-psychotic medication. Stopped by police in an effort to exit the country, Clyde is incarcerated in a State Hospital psychiatric ward for three months and released to the streets.
      Unlike other success prototypes such as John Nash or Evelyn Saks, Clyde's story reveals both the innards of Schizophrenia and how a person can learn to make peace with the forces that are following them around. Clyde is able to overcome homelessness, underemployment, and harassment with family support and morph into someone who is fighting to gain attention for his successes in treating others who are in the throes of a "psychotic" episode.
