Jesus Matters

       Black lives matter, all lives matter, blue lives matter, and we can be sure that there are likely several other similar phrases being yelled out back and forth from one group to another. More will surely come until Americans tire of this popular catch phrase. Black lives matter, the phrase that started this trend, began in 2013 after the acquittal of George Zimmerman whose famously known for murdering the defenseless young black teen Trayvon Martin after spotting him walking through his neighborhood. Trayvon Martin's tragic death resulted in marches and protests by both African Americans and White Americans throughout many urban neighborhoods scattered around the US. Then came further street demonstrations after the tragic deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo and Eric Garner in New York City. The BLM movement grew larger and stronger gathering more popularity and media mentions. One will often witness fights brewing between protesters and local policeman while the officers were trying to keep the peace. Politicians were forced to choose sides between the local policeman or the protesters. Liberal Media would often use comments by presidential candidates concerning the movement in order to influence voters to choose one candidate over the other. During the first Democratic debate in 2015 Bernie Sanders stated that "Black Lives Matter. Martin O'malley stated that "Black Lives Matter". Ben Carson, a black candidate from the Republican party, called the movement "silly". Hilary Clinton came up with "All Lives Matter". Looking at the situation while trying to think logically and without being influenced by the television one can easily agree that all lives matter but a lot of maturity and wisdom must be mixed in with this phrase. Of course blue lives matter. That is obvious. America cannot simply shoot down several policemen every time injustice is committed in this country. Such actions committed repeatedly will cause massive chaos. Policemen cannot continue to shoot down unarmed black men every time an officer gets upset or one suspects something bad  happened. Such foolishness has brought about this horrible mess in the first place. What about Jesus Matters? What if America believed that Jesus matters and preached this message as well as walked this message day in, day out with no hindrance from the media or so called equal rights groups? What if the ACLU instead of going after teachers who desire to bring their Bibles to schools or bosses who wish to openly pray in their offices went after old men who daily seek out young middle school, high school girls to join their harem, or sought after gangs who lure young boys out from school in order to help them make money out of selling dope out on the streets?
       Jesus matters and believing in Him will create much more progress in America than decisively favoring one group's cause over another. Unfortunately, many young black men, women, and white individuals have been fooled by the BLM movement into believing that they have their back, or that this movement is going to create any sort of gainful momentum for individuals representing any race or sex. Liberal Media has brainwashed many Americans into believing that Jesus Christ is just a character in the Bible meant to be preached within the walls of the church while kept out of the harsh life that often occurs within the everyday world. Jesus Matters and believing in Him while copying His ways would create much more progress and peace in America than every day screaming at people one's message of who does and does not matter. If only America would give Him a chance. If only Liberal Media will allow all Americans the Freedom to make their own choice.

Ezekiel 18:23
"Do I have any pleasure in the death of the wicked," declares the Lord GOD, "rather than that he should turn from his ways and live?
Ezekiel 18:32
"For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies," declares the Lord GOD. "Therefore, repent and live."

John 3:17
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.

Transgender Fails Target Stores

       We knew it was bound to occur and it has. And it was likely not the first incident just one that just so happened to be leaked out to the media. A transgender, a man pretending to be a women, has been nabbed and arrested by the police for video taping an eighteen year old woman in a Target dressing room. The man, Shauna Smith, legal name Sean Patrick Smith, has been arrested by the police in the Bonneville County Sheriff's Office, located in eastern Idaho, on one felony count of voyeurism. Target has failed its customers once again. They have allowed their female customers to be open targets for desperate perverts to gaze upon them for the simple sake of political correctness. And this is not enough. Target is not admitting to it's mistake. Not only is Target Stores defending itself but all of their pro gay allies are chirping up excuses, stating that this pervert does not represent all transgender people. Thinkprogress, Zack Ford stated that this incident has nothing to do with Target Stores stand for transgenders (Ford, 2016). Phooey, dude dressed as a woman ogling at a young woman in a store dressing room, while videotaping her has everything to do with Target Stores stand for transgenders. The common sense warning thousands of people gave to Target about their female shoppers being preyed upon by perverts, was sent loud and clear and in huge numbers. The American Family Association number of petitioners who have already signed to boycott Target has already reached way over 1,300,000. That is a lot of people. And Target has suffered 10 billion dollars in losses with likely more to come. One has to look at Target, the CEO of the store and ask: Is it worth it? Is being politically correct worth billions of dollars and parents losing faith in your ability to look after and care for their young daughters? Is transgender rights, gay rights worth sacrificing the innocence of our youth?
       It's a sad story because much of the population probably does not know that this arrest in Target has taken place since the story is not receiving much air time in television news. It is as if Liberal Media is more concerned about protecting the depiction and portrayal of transgenders than they are of protecting our wives, mothers, and daughters who need to use the store restroom or dressing room. The dressing room is a serious place of privacy for both sexes. This is not a place for a man to declare his rights to the world that he can be a woman if he desires. So what. Not in front of my daughter when she wants to change. What about her rights? What about my rights? Why is this man's fantasy to be a woman more important than keeping a voyeur from preying on a young lady? Common sense has been taking a beating in America and much of the Western World. Perverts want the right to be perverts and dimwitted folks are paving a way for them to satisfy their grotesque fantasies by bowing down to their excuses for behaving weird. No the individual was not born that way. He simply has a weakness that he has deceived others to allow him to coddle instead of fighting it like one does who is addicted to crack cocaine. You better fight it if not it only gets worse. Just like now America is still fighting the AIDS, HIV virus, gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc., One does not know how worse it can get if we allow this males taking over women's restroom's behavior take over society. Or even women invading men's restroom. What happens when a little boy witnesses a woman dressed up as a man who obviously looks like a woman try to take a whiz in the men's restroom. I mean that is just weird. Obviously pro - gay folks would read a remark like that and laugh at it but this is reality. This is the real world that one cannot escape. People are watching. A woman walking around inside a men's restroom cannot be simply shrugged at and life goes on. As Hilary Clinton says: America "it is time to move on". And she would really like for all of us to place blinders over our eyes and pretend that this man dressed up as a woman, taking videos of a young lady while she is changing in a woman's dressing room is not a big deal. But to millions of people it is. And these individuals are not going to just move on. There is no logical, intelligent reason why they should.

After Orlando

       Just before heading to bed that Sunday morning, June 12, I read headlines on the internet mentioning a horrific shooting occurring in a gay night club in Orlando. "Not again", I thought to myself. "America has gone nuts". Knowing that I had to serve in church several hours later, I decided to go to bed and catch up on the story later. I could not believe it. Forty nine people gunned down like animals another forty plus people injured. While browsing through the many stories and pictures of each of these individuals  I noticed that these were very handsome young men, college educated, and with very bright futures. There were some women who lost their lives, too. God bless their souls. But the majority of the victims were young men. Not just average young men but the type of men that most single young women would perform cartwheels and backflips in order to marry. One cannot help but wonder, why would this fellow want to date or engage in sex with men when he could likely have his pick between a group of attractive young women. Then one remembers,  hearing and reading commentaries and statements from previous young men who have been with women but for one personal, psychological reason or another was not satisfied. But that is another article.
      Since Columbine Liberal Americans and many other democrats have been screaming "GUN CONTROL GUN CONTROL" but to no prevail these mass shootings continue to occur. The shootings do not just occur but the nation, except for a few television, political debates, some flowers, and the typical "thoughts and prayers" statement from the average celebrity or organization, moves on behaving as if nothing happened. Since 911 the idea that by behaving tough and acting as if these crazy episodes don't bother us has created a pattern where people in front of the tv cameras continue to say and do the same things believing that these words and acts of toughness ("no fear") will somehow deter the next mass shooter or bomber from deploying his or her evil plans.
       America has a problem, big problem. These episodes of events seem to be traveling within a circle of chaos hidden behind NBA Finals, car racing, Summer Olympics, the presidential race, and typical Liberal media noise. These are the everyday events, one after the other, one always ready to take the place of the one about to end, that hide reality from the average American. This country has problems, big problems. Forty - nine individuals gunned down while partying in  a gay bar and Liberal media is trying to use the incident as an opportunity to raise LGBT rights by reducing Christian rights. Liberal media as well as the Democratic Party ridicules Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by always placing him on the spot, and blaming Christians for the shootout by making it appear as if by Christians accepting homosexuality as normal this shooting would have never happened. Such thinking is a far shot from reality and brings up the question, why not blame  Islam? Why not blame the Muslims since it was a Muslim individual who committed the crime and committed it in the name of Islam? Why not blame Islam since it is very possible that the gunner may have received the go ahead to commit these murders from the leaders within the Middle East, where Islam carries much power and authority over millions of people? Why not blame Islam since the shooter pledged allegiance to ISIS?
       Does one sense fear? Are the LGBT afraid of Muslims and not afraid of Christians? Are the LGBT too afraid to send a message to Syria and Afghanistan, countries where the world is commonly aware of beheadings, imprisonment, and beatings of people even accused of being gay? Constantly reading the papers, watching news and discussions of the shootings occurring at the nightclub there is hardly any mention by the media of the fact that the shooter was a Muslim and committed the act under Islam. There is hardly any mention that the dude who was killing LGBT people under Islam was also himself believed to be a gay man by several of the people who knew him. He was seen often frequenting gay bars. He even asked a man out (Emery, 2016). Sounds gay to me. But the media hardly mentions this crucial fact of this heinous murderer. One has to read further into the story and browse beyond ABC, NBC, television, etc.. in order to locate this critical data. News is supposed to be truthful and honest. These stories are supposed to tell everybody what actually occurred and the likely reasons so that the audience can come up with effective conclusions. If not then the news shown is useless. The data is basically a propaganda story reported in a bias format in order to influence pliable people to vote for people and causes that the Liberal media want them to vote for. It is basically an atheist or agnostic church shown on television trying to influence people to gather within and support their own movement. Whatever type of movement it is, the citizens of America will find out as more and more atheist are elected to important posts and Christians freedoms to worship God, read and obey the Bible, attend church peacefully and raise their children in a way that is obedient to the Lord is attacked and taken to court daily. "The LGBT just want freedom to love whoever they choose?!?" Nope, don't believe that. Just ask the baker in Colorado who did not want to bake a cake for the gay wedding. That had nothing to do with love. That was a deliberate attack by atheists against someone who simply desired to obey God.
       Again America is in trouble. For various reasons citizens in this country continue to shoot up people while Liberal media, the American government continue to state their momentary pause for silence, then afterwards show the NBA basketball championships, baseball game, concert, or whatever is occurring at that time. An average of about six months runs by and another chaotic gun massacre occurs. These constant murders and callous expressions influence the soul and depth of the heart of American people. One cannot, at least an individual with a heart, ignore the lack of genuine repentance shown within the hearts of the American people. Nobody, at least when viewed through the media, does anything except shout against guns and the 2nd Amendment. The people on the Democratic party and their followers keep shouting against the Right To Bear Arms as if nullifying it is the magic key that will solve all of America's problem. They do not understand that this country's problems travel way beyond gun control. There is a spiritual darkness, evil, moving these individuals who ruthlessly murder people going back to Columbine, and going back even further if one was to count all of the other sinister massacres occurring in America.  There is a lot of hatred in this country. The atheists, ACLU, LGBT groups are attacking Christians and accusing them of hating but these groups have nothing to offer but more claims of "love". Even with all of these chants for "love" accusations of hatred against anybody who disagrees with the LGBT, and the movement to remove Christians' freedom, people are still being murdered savagely in this country. People are still being shot down. Gay people are being mowed down by other gay people. Liberal media wants to go after the everyday citizens' guns and if they are successful in taking their guns what comes next? Will the Liberal people be running after the Christians who don't wish to celebrate gay weddings and other LGBT ceremonies? Will the LGBT and similar groups be trying to force others to follow their religion? Will a Liberal army be created to force Christians and any other person who happens to disagree with their theology to follow the religion of Political Correctness. Is that possible? Wasn't it because of persecution that Christians ran away from places like England, Germany, the Soviet Union, China, Nigeria to settle into the United States? Wasn't it because of the sufferings that the North American Colonies experienced under the previous harsh ruling of Great Britain the reason why the 2nd Amendment was created?

Target Stores Stands with Transgender Bathrooms

       This is old news by now but still very interesting. In April 26, 2016, the popular Minneapolis-based discounter issued a statement stating that customers and employees can use the restroom or fitting room that "corresponds to their gender identity" (D' Innocenzio, 2016). Target, once known as a pro family oriented store, has now taken the side of the extremely Liberal left who praises any combination but the traditional family. The American Family Association, as expected, is leading a widely united stand against the now pro - transgender store by beginning a petition calling for a boycott of Target stores. The petition is online and is said to have over 1 million signed petitions. Bryan Kemper, a youth outreach director for Staying True, said that he put up a video on his Facebook page assessing Target's decision that has now accumulated more than 250,000 viewers. Bryan Kemper is mainly known for traveling around the United States and other parts of the world (mostly Western Europe and Australia) while giving his message against abortion. He is boycotting the retailer. His facebook page is filled with comments from individuals who disagree with Targets decision and view of their restroom policy. The often commented perspective that which restroom someone uses is nobody's business and that nobody cares is not only unproven but sounds ridiculous. Bryan Kemper posted an article on his website stating that a man claiming to be a transgender was arrested while filming in women's bathrooms (LaCapria, 2016) The man, Jason Pomare, was arrested in a Lancaster, PA Macy's store after he was seen in a women's bathroom. The security guards found the cross dressing man in a mall storage area. He entered the ladies bathroom wearing a bra and a dress. Matthew Forestel of O'Fallon, Missouri was arrested on April 23, 2015 after allegedly secretly filming women in a Target store (Lahue, 2016). He held his camera phone under the dressing room while the female shopper was trying on swim suits. Isn't it strange that while this ranting about gay, transgender, public bathroom rights is playing repeatedly over the news, television and radio, no mentioning of these actual events are ever spoken? One has to research the internet in order to find them. These are real occurrences and there are actually more. If such a character can take  pictures of women while dressed as a female what makes Target stores and Liberals think that such events cannot happen again? And why is it looked upon as hatred and bigotry if somebody has the common sense to bring up such likely occurrences? Who are we trying to protect, the innocence and privacy of both our young girls and older women or the self esteem of individuals who want to be something that they are simply not?
       What would happen if a Target store employee happened to intercept a cross dressing man staring at a female shopper while she is attempting to enter a toilet stall? Would the individual have the courage to intercept the peculiar individual and at least ask what he (she?) is doing or at least leave the restroom area and immediately tell a manager? And if the individual did would an employee care to do something? Would the brave person be referred to as a bigot? These questions may seem funny but reality states that these are likely occurrences that will come up. People will be offended. Lawsuits will be filed. News media will take sides. There are creepy people in this world. Some of them are cross dressers. Unfortunately the pro LGBT groups don't care. They are all about the transgender rights but not thinking about those who will likely have their own privacy rights abused, or be susceptible to possible rape crimes or even murder.
       Speaking of creepy, there is a long list of sexual predators who have taken advantage of the Liberals campaign against what they call discrimination against transgender folks. In 2011 a special needs teenager in Stamford, Connecticut was lured into a bathroom by three "transgendered" men and sexually assaulted (VNOBH). In 1999 a "transgendered" man named Patrick Hagan, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound martial arts enthusiast was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison after punching a female bar patron who questioned his presence in a Port Richey, Florida restroom. The woman lost five teeth and faced up to $60,000 in medical bills. In 2011 39-year-old Thomas Benson, who had prior sex offenses against 5 to 9 year old girls, was arrested when a good Samaritan chased him out of a Milwaukee, Oregon water park packed with children on a field trip. A chaperon chased and restrained Benson after he entered a women's locker room dressed in a bikini and started talking to children in the hot tub. In 2003 33-year-old Eichi Yamamoto was arrested and charged with 17 counts of illegally entering bathhouses and peeping while dressed as a woman in Matsuyama, Japan. "I wanted to see women naked," he told investigators. "Dressing up as a woman was a step to do that." In 2004 Robert Domasky, 48, was arrested after dressing up like a woman and attempting to enter a locker room at Greensburg Salem High School in Pennsylvania to photograph cheerleaders. He had a lengthy criminal history which included identity theft and stalking a woman. Police later found cheerleading uniforms, pompoms, and high school yearbooks in his apartment. In 2014 cross dresser Christopher Hambrook, 37, a repeat sexual offender was jailed indefinitely in Toronto for sexually assaulting several women he shared quarters with at women's shelters in 2012.
       The list goes on and on. The sad reality is that one will not hear a single one of these incidents cited by the news media. The news media will only mention transgenders challenging schools, private businesses, government buildings, etc., and their efforts to protect the privacy of their employees and customers while always making the transgender opposite sex wanna be always appear like the helpless victim whom we all must feel sorry for. These new rules and events are insane and someone will obviously seriously get hurt, if not already had if everyday people do not have the courage and concern for one another to stand up for decency and common sense.
       Going back to Target stores, don't allow Liberal media to fool you. The national retailer has taken a blow from its decision to back transgenders against Christians and common sense, and decency. The question is how hurtful is this blow and how long will it last. Again the American Family association has garnered over a million signatures agreeing to boycott the store. These signatures do not include the thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, or maybe even millions of people who have determined within their own private thoughts to withhold their dollars from entering into the store.
         Bob Unruh from WND.com reported that Target's stocks has plunged as the number of boycott signers has soared over the one million and twenty thousand mark (Unruh, 2016). Consumers may decide to dump their investments of Target. The company's stock has dropped down from $83.98 per share on April 19, to about $81.33 on April 28, to later $79.77. Target stores executives keep behaving as if this is just a minor incident that will soon cool down and later return to normal. News media continue to ignore this continuing story, pretending that no consequences exist for businesses and individuals who proudly side against Christians and Biblical morals. But who knows? Target may suffer some serious consequences from their harsh decisions against Christians and people in general who simply do not feel comfortable having someone from the opposite sex walking in on them while using the bathroom. Target may regret taking sides in this social argument. Liberal media makes it appear as if common sense automatically chooses the LGBT against Christian rights and the Church. Liberal politicians always make it appears as if following the commands from the Bible is backwards and unintelligent. As the war against God within America continues, onlookers may be witnessing the beginning of a great fall from another one of America's giants, perhaps.

Who's Spooky Electric?

       I recently heard of the death of a famous singer whom I was a huge fan of during my younger days. Prince's death was shocking and very sad to me. I felt  like crying because I remembered a time during my pre and early teens when I used to stare wonderingly at the fascinating music videos, admiring all those pretty women wearing their sexy costumes. I listened intently to the videos telling their fascinating stories, watching the singer gyrate and dance with his female companions. The dances and acts on stage mesmerized me. Then I would buy the tapes and listen intently to the songs, trying to understand what the dude was saying. Weird words would come out of his mouth, like 'Spooky Electric', 'lovesexy', "Anna Stesia" and I would be wondering to myself, "what in the world is this crazy man talking about". I believed that he must have been high on drugs while writing the lyrics for these songs. I mean much of what he was saying, especially in the Batman album, made no sense. But I loved the music. I loved the beats and the instrumental playing behind the lyrics. And the lyrics that I did understand, even though some of it was strange, they still appealed to me. I often imagined that Spooky Electric was some kind of spirit conjured by Prince, possibly even an evil spirit. I was a Christian then, a young one. I should have known better. I should have known to shut that music off and throw the cassette tapes away. I should have known to ignore the music videos on MTV. But the songs, the beautiful female musicians, and the brassy instrument playing appealed to me. It was breathtaking. I remember watching music videos like "Raspberry Beret" and "U Got The Look" and not being able to take my eyes of the characters. The videos were captivating. I would not tell my friends or siblings but I often wanted to be inside the television with those characters, dancing with the singers and dancers. The cartoon female in the Raspberry Beret video, felt emotionally appealing. Sometimes I would imagine having a girlfriend just like her.
       Looking back at myself at that time, now as an adult, I would think, "man I must have been very weird". But while reading commentaries from other fans, after his recent death, I learned that it was not just me. There were other people who were captivated by this singer. I saw many scenes of grown men and women actually crying over him. And now I am beginning to understand what this dude named Prince actually meant to me. And I am beginning to understand who is Spooky Electric. Prince was a shy, awkward, strange man in person, during interviews but on stage and in the interviews he was very flashy, wild, and charming with the ladies. He in a way spoke to people who felt lonely or in their own way awkward. He made them feel like they can be cool. His strange videos and lyrics acted as steps and ladders for the imaginative, those who often day dreamed and fantasized. His cool drawings and perplexing signs drew people who were very curious and sent them along on a lengthy journey to find and discover the truths and meanings behind his imaginative stories he was telling. Yes he was mesmerizing, but yes I am glad that I long ago hopped of that journey.
       I used to be hooked into MTV Rock and later Hip Hop and Rap music. I watched every Hip Hop video again and again and again. And when I became an adult and made more money, I bought continuous arm loads of tapes. I remember buying ten to fifteen tapes on line around two to three times in a couple months span. Every week I would buy the Sunday paper and purchase the new hit records on sale that week, purchasing two to five a week. I accumulated over a hundred CDs and tapes. Some of them were personal tapes created and copied from past friends of mine who knew I loved music and made those tapes especially for me. I listened to songs that reminded me of friends whom I most likely will never see again, just to remember them. I listened to songs that I depended on to help me fall asleep at night. I had songs to listen to in order to cheer me up whenever I felt depressed. But deep inside I knew that I am a Christian and I should not be listening to those kind of music, but I could not stop. Then one day after having deep talks with other Christians and my wife during Bible Meetings I got convicted. The music was not good for me nor did it elevate Jesus Christ for the True Lord and Savior that He is. For several years I stopped listening to the music but I still kept them stored in their boxes and containers. Some of those tapes gave me good memories of people and fun during my childhood. Just looking at the artistry and writings by people whom meant a lot to me made me turn my eyes away at the thought of departing from them. Then one day something happened to me. I walked over to the boxes and containers of tapes and simply picked them up and placed them outside in front of my porch for the garbage collectors to come by and pick up the next morning. The next day they were gone. I long ago began listening to christian music and christian radio and discovered that Christian Music sounded just as good, in fact even better. While listening to Christian songs I felt no guilt in what I was listening to, neither did I have to feel any concern about someone cussing on the tape, or making some suggestive comments about sex, or inviting some strange demonic spirit into my life. Nor did I have to worry about having to explain to my children why these tapes were in the house after they became old enough to look and wonder.
       Now back to Spooky Electric. While researching the name I discovered that Spooky Electric is some kind of neon devil (Anders, 2012). He cuts like a knife and tries to get in you and gives you a .57 magnum - and then you have to call People Magazine and Rolling Stone" (Anders, 2012). So, I guess I was right. I knew that it must be some kind of spirit and I knew that it was likely a demonic spirit I was just too in love with the music to admit it to myself and just find another companion to soothe my spirit, like Jesus. I still like Prince and I am very sad to see him die so young at the age of 57, but I have known of the early, tragic deaths of so many other great artists, like Aaliyah, Notorious BIG, Eazy E, Elvis, John Lennon, the H-Town lead singer, the lead singer from the group Blaque who died after getting hit by a car, and even one of the dancers for rapper Heavy D. So many of them have died it is real sad. It is just obvious something is wrong with this music, rock, hip hop, rap, it does not matter. Something is wrong with Spooky Electric. Again I still like Prince and I wish that he would have become a Christian. I know that he dabbled into being a Jehovah Witness but unless Prince Rogers Nelson accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and asked Him for the forgiveness for his sins Prince was not a Christian, meaning he was not saved, and that is sad.

Is Donald Trump Free to Speak

 "Freedom of Speech is the right to communicate one's opinions and ideas without fear of government retaliation or censorship. The term freedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously, but includes any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium  used"(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_speech_in_the_United_States).
       Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, these are two extremely important laws of the United States Constitution that has often been debated within the media. Donald Trump has been well known throughout the entire 2016 US Presidential election race to be an extremely fiery speaker who communicates his thoughts with no fear of whatever anybody thinks or will say whatsoever. This tremendous ability and courage of his thrills millions of people as shown by the thousands appearing to hear his speeches and the many electoral votes he has been winning during the presidential election. Not many people are capable of that kind of courage and ability as shown by Hilary Clinton's recent apology to the LGBT groups for praising Nancy Reagan. Her fear of the LGBT groups reaction and possibly losing their support caused her to quickly recant compliments she made of a former IST Lady, who many people agree was a great personal figure for this country. But simply because the LGBT group were not satisfied with her efforts towards assisting them directly during the alarming rise of the HIV epidemic, an important political figure cannot even commend her. Put Donald Trump in the same situation and he would have told the LGBT, gently translated, to go fly kite. First of all it is not Hilary Clinton or the Reagan Administration's fault that so many gay people were inflicted with and died from HIV AIDS. Second Nancy Reagan did the best she could. She publically spoke often about AIDS and brought the epidemic to the nation's attention. Third the LGBT need to start taking some of their own responsibility for their constant battle with AIDS. The great rise and harm inflicted by this disease could have been prevented by them not engaging in homosexual sex, marrying one spouse, and having sex with that one spouse and that one spouse only. Fourth this is something this country greatly needs. Someone who is capable of making his own decisions and speaking his mind without always tiptoeing around gay people, Planned Parenthood, Syria, the hundreds of pro Muslim groups, and all of these other peoples and organizations who have turned America from what was something great into what is turning into a great chaos. That is what Donald Trump meant when he said: "we are going to make America great again". America has over 318.9 million people living within her borders. She cannot turn herself over while changing into something catastrophic in order to cater to the LGBT and like crowds. The LGBT demands that America place God, their religious beliefs, teachings, ethnic customs, personal preferences underneath this humanistic, atheist dogma many people have no desire to follow. A person who follows and loves Jesus Christ has no desire to cater towards atheism. A person who loves God with all his heart and all his might has no desire to allow his church to house a gay wedding when the individual knows within his heart that such an arrangement is an abomination and offensive to the Lord.
       This is where the Freedom of Speech comes in. Donald Trump is a presidential candidate and he has the right to speak and chat with his voters, regardless of whether others agree or like what he is saying or not. The Constitution does not grant freedom of speech to just and only people who support foreigners flooding through our country borders with no accountability whatsoever. Even his comment concerning banning all Muslims from entering into the country, made during a speech in a South Carolina rally, and though I do not agree with what he said he has the right to say it. If you do not agree with what he said then don't vote for him. The comment Trump made regarding McCain not being a true war hero was not a nice comment but we don't see John McCain trying to run through security guards in order to beat him up. Americans have to respond to things that disturb them with more intelligence. Hilary Clinton or Bernie Sanders is not going to do anything different but to continue what Barak Obama already started and that is to continue to whittle down the rights given to individuals by the Constitution while specifically attacking Christian people with this phony save the gay people campaign. Although their is no guarantee that Donald Trump is truly on the side of the Christian people of America. There is at least one thing that he looks to be able to be counted on. And that is to stick with his decision regardless of what comment Barbara Walters or Diane Sawyers make. He looks to be able to say that he is for something and not state within months that his feelings are evolving. He appears to not have any agenda against true Christians or bias towards LGBT or Planned Parenthood. He appears to be able to lead the country without pulling any shenanigans or playing with the minds of everyday people who simply disagree with many of the Liberal party's view of the world and do not wish to follow it. More importantly, he appears to not be a puppet for the Liberal agenda. The Liberal party is beginning to turn this country into their own form of a Joseph Stalin or Adolph Hitler led society. Somebody needs to have the guts and courage to say enough is enough.

Looks to be Trump

       Imagine, after all the hee - hawing, the funny faces, smirks, name calling, Jimmy Fallon jokes, dude looks like he may actually make it. This guy might just soon be the new president of the United States. At first it seemed a joke. A few years ago my wife and I were laughing at him while viewing the Apprentice. The general public most knew him for often stating his famous phrase: "your fired". Mr Proud To Be A Billionaire might soon likely be talking like that face to face to people like Bashar al-Assad, and Kim Jong-un. The first year of his presidency will likely be the most comedic, parodied, presidential term in world history. One will definitely have to tape Saturday Night Live at least for the first month just to witness the kind of jokes and satire those clowns will create from an accomplishment of this one time reality tv star. No, not only a star, but a billionaire star who ended up being the funniest presidential candidate ever to run for the big office. But not only is he funny, what is really humorous is that this guy may actually win.
       No I am not voting for Donald Trump. Sadly I am beginning to lose faith in the guy I really want to win. I believe that he, Ben Carson, would have been a great president but the media, when he was winning, kept throwing punches and jabs at him and he was not able to fight back strongly. I understand that some people think he is weak and that he did not fight back with a strong voice, but as I have heard lately, the person with the loudest voice is not always necessarily the strongest, nor most importantly the wisest. But at least for the Republican primary Trump seems to be bashing everybody to pieces. Only Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio appear to have a chance and those two, especially Rubio, will crumble off the playing field if the game does not change quickly. Reading the current standings Trump is ahead in states like Alabama and Oklahoma. He has already won New Hampshire and Nevada and is faring well in Iowa and South Carolina, states that are usually dominated by more evangelical candidates. It does not seem like the south will pull for the evangelical opponent this election, especially since the most evangelical of them all, Mike Huckabee, fell out of the race weeks ago. Maybe the South had enough of always supporting the evangelical opponent, or maybe Donald Trump's strong words and signs of strength is enough for most Republican voters to convince them that when he comes to office he will not be there to play around with folks like Jeff Merkley, Tammy Baldwin, or the ACLU. He is actually there to win and to tell the ACLU, People for the American Way, and groups like Naral Pro Choice America to go jump of a cliff. America does not have to bow down to them nor do her citizens owe them anything. Many people I have spoken to say they like Donald Trump because he is not politically correct. He is not afraid to say what is on his mind. He does not allow the media to push him around. I agree. He does not allow the Liberal Party to push him around or allow news pushers to allow him to feel ashamed for disagreeing with them. He does not feel uncomfortable about attending a show like The View and telling a Whoopie Goldberg to go fly a kite. I believe that was what was missing from past Republican candidates like Mitt Romney and John McCain, and what is happening to Ben Carson. They all have difficulty talking straight to the media in a strong, tough manner, while telling them that they could care less what Barbara Walter's or whoever star's opinion is or whatever is the data of the day, "this is what I believe and this is where I stand".
       But the election is not over yet and I am still rooting for Ben Carson. Hope he wins. There is still some months left. On the Democratic side it looks like Hilary Clinton's going to win it by a land slide but how will she do against Donald Trump? That will be an interesting show. On an article I read months ago it showed that if Bernie Sanders won the Democratic nomination he would have a better chance of beating Trump then Clinton. "Hhmmm". But that was written months ago. Who knows what will happen now? But I bet that more than 90 percent of those Democrats voting did not think about that.
