Musings From Another Deplorable

A great one found on the Internet and shared by a friend:

I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist. I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist. I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe. I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business. I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel. I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby. I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man. I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary. I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe. I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist. I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist. I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (it’s called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever. I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant. Please help me come to terms with the new me… because I‘m just not sure who I am anymore! I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking! I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!

Guarding the Borders

Donald Trump made a statement that, if he were president, he would restrict any person or group of people he felt were a threat to the United States. Arguments aside on the reasons for his idea, the media is having a Trump bashing day with even the White House   coming out and saying   Trump should bow out of the race as his views on the subject make him unfit for running and, possibly, being elected president. It has been said that this idea by Trump was unconstitutional.

Seems the people who are coming at Trump for his words might consider a bit of research on the topic before throwing the proverbial stones.
