The Jokes on Trump

img_0696I must admit, I enjoy mocking our “president” but the fact remains that no matter how many clapbacks to his Twitter rants, he still is a very dangerous man sitting in the highest office of the most powerful county on this planet (universe for those who believe there is no life on other planets).

While humor is always helpful in stressful situations; action to remove said stress is extremely important. For those who believe that Trump’s policies are dangerous to individual freedoms, individual and collective prosperity as well as harm our environment and destroy our public education system; you have choices to make.

You can choose to be non-political and continue to be a recipient of whatever the American political systems spits out.


You can choose to get politically active in your communities. Being independent is great, but if you want to make change you will need to pick a side – Democrat or Republican. The reality is we live in a two party system. The two parties control pretty much ever election system in this country (federal, state, and local) so if you want to change the system that allowed a “Trump” (or chump) to rise to power then you will need to work from within the established system.

The time to act is now. Local political parties are starving for your skills, abilities and leadership. Elected officials need to hear your voice. And YOUR community needs to stand up and take control of its political destiny.

Jokes are fun but once we finish laughing there is much work to do.

Ted Cruz Ends Historic Presidential Run

Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz formally named Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate on Wednesday, April 27, 2016.  Ted Cruz formally announced that he would be “suspending” his campaign on Monday May 3, 2016 after Donald J. Trump’s landslide Republican Primary victory in Indiana.  Why go thru all of the trouble of picking a running mate just to throw in the towel a week later?

Cruz could have done bad all by himself. This tea party darlin’ who was disliked by members of Congress and mostly everyone else in America who wasn’t a member of the team party,  pretty much had no shot at winning the Presidency. Why did he have to drag Fiorina, a woman who seems to catch losses at every turn (CEO of HP, Adviser to Sen John McCain’s 2008 Presidential Campaign, 2010 California Senate Campaign, and 2016 Presidential Run) back into the presidential campaign spotlight creating a thus far Republican Presidential Primary win challenged dynamic duo.

Team Lose never had a chance;  however the question is whether Cruz ever thought they did?
