AMERICA HELD HOSTAGE BY trump/ THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT TRY MEN'S SOULS

" For most of us Fidelity is Faithfulness to an Obligation, Trust, or Duty.

 

For the Men and Women of the FBI, Fidelity also means Fidelity to Country.

 

It means Fidelity to Justice and the Law,

 

Fidelity to the Constitution,

 

Fidelity to Equality and Liberty. "

 

 

 

 

 

Robert Mueller

 

6th Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Sept. 2001-Sept. 2013

(Below as referenced to the last line in this quote: " Equality and Liberty "

Equal, equality; Liberty, Liberty are words from the

Declaration of Independence.

 

What you call liberal social terms are terms that Thomas Jefferson utilized in the Declaration of Independence to put down the founding principles of the United States of America, July 4th, 1776.

 

If you don't agree with that wording, then

 

Apparently you don't agree with The Declaration of Independence, the principles for which this country stands.

well, I do know this. it is an absolute physical impossibility for anyone to enjoy the fruits of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness if they are not first permitted to be born:P  :D

" Where Justice is denied,

 

Where poverty is enforced,

 

Where ignorance prevails,

 

and where any one class is made to feel that

 

Society is an Orgnized Conspiracy

 

To oppress,

 

Rob and

 

Degrade them,

 

Neither persons nor property will be safe. "

the right can like Frederick Douglass because he spoke reasonably and not just emotionally. :)

Don't you think people are Americans first before they are anything else. Can't you just like someone because they made a great contribution to American history?

 

Or do you have to take it through some kind of litmus test that somebody else is giving you because you're considering yourself to be a right wing person.

 

 

I judge people by the principles of this country as they were written down in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

 

I don't need anybody else or any group of people any place, on any TV cable news channel , on any radio program, or any political party or any newspaper or any on-line magazine or anything else to tell me what's right and what's wrong.

 

I've known that since I was in the 1st grade.

" When you get to know a lot of people, you make a great discovery.

 

You find that no one group has a monopoly on looks, brains, goodness or anything else.

 

It takes all the people--

 

 

Black and white,

 

 

Catholic, Jewish and Protestant,

 

 

Recent immigrants and

 

 

Mayflower descendants--

 

 

To make up America. "

if those who laud her actually believed all that than they would see the wrongfulness of minimizing the conquest of the earth's frontiers by the caucasian race...

 

from chuck yeager challenging that ol' demon who lives in the air to armstrong setting the first human foot on the moon.

 

why do so many challenge reality? because they resent so much being accomplished by members of a single race.

 

that's really it isn't it? :)

I guess you're not familiar with HIDDEN FIGURES.  Your racism is showing, pal.

THAT'S what I'm talking about. :lol:

 Are you so locked into your own little world that you can't understand the contributions of the whole fabric of humanity - different races, different sexes, etc.?  Now that's sad.  What is the zaygon hegemony?  Is it some little island comprised solely of white male conservatives?  If so, it seems dullsville to me.

I'm reminded that veteran/American icon Jackie Robinson concluded the preface to his autobiography this way:

DKf38AFX0AABkO6.jpg

Jackie Robinson

 

 

 

The American baseball player who broke the color bar of Jim Crow segregation in Major League Baseball

 

Recipient, Presidential Medal of Freedom

 

Member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jackie Robinson had to take racial slurs and humiliating indignities to play baseball with white players in 1947.

 

It's truly tragic that the President of the United States, who is supposed to be the representative and protector of all Americans, has nothing better to do today than to racially insult American professional athletes who are black.

 

Most Americans do not want to go back 70 years and repeat all the mistakes of the past.

 

This country has progressed in 70 years and I don't believe most Americans are going to let one person drag us back into the dark ages of racism, misogyny and homophobia.

He doesn't have to.  If he has any inkling that Kaepernick originally knelt to protest rogue cops shooting innocent black people, he would know.  That and the fact that the NFL is 70% black.  Trump knew what he was doing and he didn't have to specifically mention race.

 

But what he didn't count on was the compadreship among players of all races, religions, economics and including coaches and owners and even some owners who have given money to Trump (Bob Kraft, Patriots).  Even Roger Goodell called him out.  It's called being a team and sticking together, Donny.

no, he's not!...he's still there.  :lol:

 

What if somebody said this about you?

 

I think you are lacking something in the compassion department.  No wonder you adore Donny so much; you two have some things in common.  But that love is a one-way street.  Oh, Donny will say all the pretty things you want to hear but unless you are rich and white he'd rather not be bothered.

I am white ant not rich and do not begrudge trump or anyone their wealth because I have read and comprehended the 10th commandment. :)
