Friends my attorney who represents me since my former landlord, Van Teasley was murdered in the Domician Republic 3.5 yrs ago sent me this URGENT notification, the first since his firm has represented me so It caught my attention. If you are a DC resident this is a must read, sneeky DC Council is fast-tracking legislation rolling back tenants' rights - just take a moment to read please.
I thought I would poll my friends on whether or not they were going to watch the SOTU address on Facebook and to my surprise it was voted on over 25,000 times and frankly the over 2,000 comments are - well many of them (This after asking to be respectful) disgusting.
I had like over 100 friend requests, my Facebook basicly just blew up and I haven't even been able to read all the comments. There were ignorant conclusions made about myself - even though I didn't even vote in the poll and I requested people be respectful. Is this what our country has become? Its sad. Very sad.
The Advocate is an American LGBT-interest magazine, printed bi-monthly and available by subscription. The Advocate brand also includes a website. Both magazine and website have an editorial focus on news, politics, opinion, and arts and entertainment of interest to lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT) people. The magazine, established in 1967, is the oldest and largest LGBT publication in the United States and the only surviving one of its kind that was founded before the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, an incident that is generally credited as the beginning of the LGBT rights movement.
Let me first start off by complaining to the entire Board of Directors currently representing The Cherry Fund. Why? Well because I have tried and asked and requested information very quietly and privately mainly to protect the interest of those who The Cherry Fund helps support. HOWEVER, not only has my requests to meet with the board and for information been ignorned until now the information that was finally supplied didn't supply anything in the sense of what I know you all know I was (like any vested business that donates inkind services) I was looking for. The info I have requested is public information and frankly the lack of proper response should alarm everyone. Why? Why not just supply the very basic information that I've inquired about?
Are you serious!? He's always wanted a Purple Heart - and to think that he even accepted this prestigious medal from a veteran who while fighting for our country nearly gave his life for it? Mr. Trump, how dare you. You'll never do anything near the sacrifice brave men and women have given to earn such a medal. Try serving in our armed forces, try going through what the families go through when faced with a loss of life or injury while serving. As a son of a Command Sargent Major who has served 42 years of his life, I find this putrid and makes me want to vomit. I don't what this man representing any member of the military never mind my interests.
I'm so frustrated I can't for the life of me understand why members of this already great country accept the words of a man who says MCCain was no military hero (veterans - you fight in a war to defend this country now where is your voice to defend yourself and fellow veterans? Stand up and fight back!), who mocks the disabled who steals from the poor contractors? Who thinks this man will actually care about the veterans, the disabled, and the blue collar worker when he publicly and in your face disrespects you and how do we react to this behaviour? People rally to support him? Seriously WTF? Yes we have issues an no one is a wizard who has all the answers to fix things that's why the American people are loved we fight we push onward and we do what is right to fix them but what happens when the American people accept blatant reprehensible behaviours (which at one time we the American people, because of our values, beliefs and mutual respect would have never tolerated) as acceptable behaviours? What kind of example are we setting for our kids? What sort of standard have we now set for future candidates who run for the most important and powerful position in the world. Damn I mean if Trump can behave like this before our face and we accept these behaviours and lower or standards so low what will happen when he has the power of the most powerful country in the world how will he use that power and will we regret we didn't uphold the values that we'd expect from our own countrymen/woman? Would we allow a teacher to make fun of a disabled student? NO - never! Would a veteran accept disrespect from a child NO - never, don't we all have to pay our bills? When did we begin to accept these behaviours from a Presidential candidate? I dare a teacher to poke fun at a disabled student and see the outrage and demands for that teachers firing now let's keep up our standards of our Presidential candidate and come Nov we must show Trump what's it's like to be fired and show him we have not lowered our values and standards of what we expect from our President otherwise we give a green like for our kids to act just like Trump with no regard to morals or values you and I grew up being instilled with. I'd never tolerate my son/daughter making fun of the disabled or disrespecting a Veteran not to mention a POW and so why do we find this behaviour acceptable from the most respected and powerful position in the world? WAKE UP PEOPLE.
