President Trump the Horrible or Headmaster Extraordinaire  

 

Every Blankman: I am ashamed of this country, which has become the laughing stock of the world. How could it be that this nation, with its highly educated people, elected a president whom the majority of the people did not vote for? How mean-spirited he is to suggest building a wall to keep undesirables out.  This is not what the Democratic Ideals of America espouse.

 

Republican: There is nothing to be ashamed of. Tell me: Which of those enlightened countries has elected an actor, a Blackman, a peanut farmer, a Whiteman who fooled Blacks that he was Black, or a Trump? As for our highly educated people, it is better to think of us a pragmatic people--more into getting things done than to be harping on the theory/niceties behind getting things done. (Of course, we love the checks and balances that would deter conformity and the tyranny of majority rule.)

 

Perhaps that is why many enlightened Europeans are confused as to why a nation that shuns intellectualism is the one they have to run to when the shit hits, or is about to hit, the fan. But alas, the election of President Trump has resulted in mass education regarding the intricacies of American politics and the wisdom of the founding fathers in drafting such a living and breathing Constitution.

 

Informatively, a practical understanding of the dynamics of the Electoral College allowed a “dumb” Donald Trump to beat the intellectually predisposed Hillary Clinton. As for the wall, examine the graphics to see the security you, as the head of your family, have around your house to keep out murderers, rapists, “beastialitysts,” and other undesirables. Why then do you believe it is mean-spirited for President Trump, as the head of the nation, to adopt the same methods you are using to try and keep such individuals out of America?

 

Albeit, it may not be a fence. But as federalist and antifederalist discussions informed our Constitution, so too will our pro-immigration and anti-immigration discussions inform our national security. The difference now is that unlike how the antifederalists had to hide to voice their opposition to the original framework for the Constitution, the First enables all our people to say their piece on matters affecting our governance. Hence, no one has to be running to seek refuge in another state or country because of fear of the murderers, rapists, animal molesters, throat slashers and bloodsuckers.

 

So, Americans, if that is what you want in a state near yours, tell President Trump to TEAR DOWN ALL WALLS. If not, let him strengthen border security and let the elites in Europe keep their borders opened to the vengeful and murderous masses?

Dr. Green or should I say SPIN DOCTOR.   Yep, spin<<How mean-spirited he is to suggest building a wall to keep undesirables out.  This is not what the Democratic Ideals of America espouse.>>
 
  MEAN-SPIRITED is a made up phase by the dems that presents emotional image but is open to apply anywhere.   Didn't eat your spinach so my baby must be mean-spirited.   
 
"César Chávez, through 1965 to the 1980s, he organized strikes and boycotts to ensure higher wages, institionalized rights and better living conditions for farm workers.  However, the UFW also gained a reputation for upholding Mexican-Americans' rights at the expense of illegal immigrants. In campaigning for greater benefits for his Latino union workers, Chávez sought to ensure that immigrants did not undercut his bargaining power by accepting cheaper wages. The UFW consistently opposed the Bracero Program, a guest worker program that ran from 1942-1964 and originally started due to extreme labor shortage during WWII when most men entered the armed forces."  https://apps.cndls.georgetown.edu/projects/borders/items/show/60
Dr. Green what has changed?  The conversation is the same, wages of American citizen are hurt by illegal immigrants and Yes César Chávez would want a wall,  Include in the protest were Democratic Party Congressmen.    As I said your a SPIN DOCTOR.

Even so, the party has a leader who is chosen by the delegates as the leader. S/he also must be elected by the people. Yes, the party that secures the most votes can lose as other parties can form a coalition to have majority seats. This is not what the article articulates.

Luther 'mean spirited' to me is really saying shut up because I do not like what your saying.  It is anyone that uses it is against liberty and freedom.  So Dr. Green and I are on opposite sides of liberty.  
 
Luther, Dr Green thinks is a destination. Slaves from Africa may have come here by accident, a destination, there protege have chosen to stay. This week we will visit my wife's family roots in Ireland and spread ashes their.  The Irish had a wake for those leaving to come to America.  Being illiterate they would likely be never heard from them again.  Luther this was typical of the immigrant that came before federal welfare programs started.  The entry requirement was a willingness to risk everything.  They put there foot on the shore totally committed to America.  The 14th Amendment said second class people, slaves, were citizens because, “The evident meaning of these last words is, not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction, and owing them direct and immediate allegiance.” Elk v Wilkins 1884  Congress made Indians citizens despite their Indian nation society in 1924.  We significantly differ because I believe America is a nation of citizens not destination seekers. 
Thomas Sutrina Added Jul 9, 2018 - 3:26pm
Note in 1884 about 2/3 of the Indians applied for and obtained citizenship in the USA.  By 1924 I guess the percentage was almost all.

The idea of a national "popular vote" for President is the construct of a loser apologist's mind.
This Republic has State elections and not Federal elections. The electoral college is merely a convention to tally all of the States' votes for Presidential candidates.

@ Ryan. "Though it supported Trump, it was profane and confusing. "
 
Did you mean to use the word profound instead of profane?  Based on the following definition of profane:" Marked by contempt or irreverence for what is sacred,"I did not see profane in my simple post. Note, I was not writing a homily. If you wanted to say it was profanity-laced, you do not have a leg on which to ground such a claim. You were astute in deriving it supported President Trump and honest in admitting it confused you, resulting in your misuse of a descriptor.

Being that you placed things out of context, I now prove that you have no clue as to the profundity of the simple piece I wrote. Hint. Consider the following and tell if you can determine the point of view from which I wrote. Consider Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. regarding Everyman. Who are the people saying they are ashamed of this country?
 
"Every Blankman: I am ashamed of this country, which has become the laughing stock of the world. How could it be that this nation, with its highly educated people, elected a president whom the majority of the people did not vote for? How mean-spirited he is to suggest building a wall to keep undesirables out.  This is not what the Democratic Ideals of America espouse.
 
I will not validate the diatribe that constitutes your additional response. It has nothing to do with my simple article.

Luther said,Dr. Green, we are on the same side but from different view points.  I chose mean spirited as an example  since the underlying message is clear to conservatives, what I said.  Your meaning as you just told us is different.   Thus you made my point that Luther is not correct.  We have different view points but also different sides.  I am for the founders approach to liberty that the Constitution tries to create and the Declaration defines.  Dr. Green is a socialist  that believe in class society maintained by government laws.  
 
The wall is actual is a historical method of keeping those that are not citizens out.  Elk v Wilkinson ~1884 restates what a citizen believes and does.  Great Wall of China,  forts have walls  mine fields are in effect walls.

I've seen you write things in past that were well- reasoned, etc. That is why it comes as a great surprise to me to see you continue on your present course.
Your quoted statement  underscores the fact that you completely missed the point of what Dr. Green was saying. You are calling Dr. Green a socialist? Good grief, man.
 
What is the deal? Did you not read and understand a single thing he said? Or is it that you can't be wrong and will defend your position against any evidence presented to you?

A point of contention I have, even with scholarly writings, is that things must be pablumized.  I am sensing that as we evolve, works of great philosophers will be no longer understandable to future generations, as the writings will be deemed too complexed.  Some would say if the masses cannot understanding what you write, then your writing is flawed. Is there still jobs for suspense writers, spies, and cryptologists?
 
Golly, I sit watching television and can tell the plot before it unfolds.
 
We have some here who are one one phrase experts, and any writings that throw them off result in dissonance.  They, then, try to apply their overlearned phrases to the unconventional writings/posts. When I stated my post was simple, it was merely a taunt and a trap which snared some of you and reveal your challenged capacity related to the use of syntax, a construct of grammar.
Based on the graphics, my work reveals a head of household ( a possible Democrat) sleeping comfortably and confident with the elaborate security to protect his family from all sorts of fiends.  The picture to the right implies President Trump,  the head of the nation, proposing to use the same methods to protect the nation and people are opposing him for doing so. 
 
The narrative represents a dialogue between two individuals and, here again, some responders got lost. I would hope it was not a matter of lack of comprehension, but merely an attempt to highjack my work without reading. Gladly, it backfired and revealed the ignorance and the failed tactics of those who attempted same.

Every Blankman: I am ashamed of this country, which has become the laughing stock of the world. How could it be that this nation, with its highly educated people, elected a president whom the majority of the people did not vote for? How mean-spirited he is to suggest building a wall to keep undesirables out.  This is not what the Democratic Ideals of America espouse.
 
I see many nations disagreeing with Trump but I can not see 'laughing stock' happening.  And the rest of the article doesn't provide proof.   
 
Second he says building a wall in 'mean-spirited' then history is full of mean-spirited individuals and nations.   Walls in history go up for basically the same reason, to keep the citizens inside safe.  Dr. Green has not presented one iota of why keeping citizens safe is mean-spirited.

Dr. Rupert Green Added Jul 10, 2018 - 5:50pm
@Thomas. "Want a good article then write an article that makes sense.  "
 
How is it you are confounded by such a simplistic article?
 
This article is a dialogue between Every Blankman and a Republican. It can be deduced that Every Blankman represents Democrats or Trump haters. Surely, it is not Republicans running around. saying " I am ashamed of this country, which has become the laughing stock of the world."
We can also see Every blankman as political dunces , those lacking political savvy, or those in need of understanding of the present political environment. They asked: "How could it be that this nation, with its highly educated people, elected a president whom the majority of the people did not vote for? How mean-spirited he is to suggest building a wall to keep undesirables out. "
 
The Republican sought to provide enlightenment and a rebuke to those from around the world who are seeking to paint the American electorates as dunces. He articulated the equal opportunity accorded America, teaches about who Americans truly are, and questions which nation has done similar regarding equal opportunity. Such is found in the following.
 
"Republican: There is nothing to be ashamed of. Tell me: Which of those enlightened countries has elected an actor, a Blackman, a peanut farmer, a Whiteman who fooled Blacks that he was Black, or a Trump? As for our highly educated people, it is better to think of us a pragmatic people--more into getting things done than to be harping on the theory/niceties behind getting things done.

Dr Green, all most of the world knows about the US comes from our news media and they are so far out of touch with reality that they were shocked with Trump was elected.  They have no idea what most people think or what motivates them, they just parrot what suites their own sensibilities.
 
Their similarly distorted reporting style about what goes on in America is out of touch with reality and projects a public image that is out of sync with what's really happening.
 
The rest of the world reads about how Trump is universally hated and is destroying our country, but at the same time realize our economy is doing great.  The stock market is doing dangerously well, employment even among minorities is at a high, and people have money to spend. 
 
If they read the news they expect Trump to be kicked out tomorrow over the Russia scandal, but they also know that doom and gloom prediction has not changed in over a year and he's still there.
 
I suspect many have just lost faith in the media and in order to pretend they still have credibility, the media caters to the diminishing group that still believes what they tell them.

Trump is horrible. The policy of separating children from their families is his idea! He refuses to take responsibility for it. This man cares not for America! His agenda is to make money and using the Presidency as an unfair advantage. He is a terrible President and is a bully.

"The rest of the world reads about how Trump is universally hated and is destroying our country, but at the same time realize our economy is doing great.  The stock market is doing dangerously well, employment even among minorities is at a high, and people have money to spend. "
 
All this is  true and it shows us  that the left do not acknowledge a good economy as beneficial to the left. They have always  made political gains in poor times. 
 
The notion that our society is benefiting from higher earnings and lower taxes is an affront to the notion that government only can solve social programs. 
 
A new good job probably means another lost vote. Contrast this with 
Obama and his manifold failures.

 Gregory S. McNeill do you realize that Trump didn't invent the laws that require law enforcement officers to find competent custody for minors if their guardians are taken into custody for committing a crime?
 
Do you realize that if your kids are starving and you get caught steeling a loaf of bread at the 99cent store, the police will take your kids away from you before they take you into custody for shoplifting?
 
Please tell me why you think illegals who get caught entering our country illegally, should be treated any better than you would be if you got caught steeling a piece of candy?
 
Do you realize the ones that say OK I was sneaking in don't get separated, they just get turned around and sent back.
 
Only the ones who chose to demand amnesty after they get caught, instead of asking for it legitimately at a border crossing, or embassy, get separated.
 
Most of the "separated kids" are not with their parents anyway, most are with someone other than their guardian.

@Gregory. Dino,

Is President Trump endowed with three nuts compared to other men? I hear this whining about what he is doing wrong. Is he doing anything right? If it was not taking away babies from parents trying to commit a crime, then it would be he uses Russian dressing. He gave the left a monumental defeat that they will never forgive him for. So hear this: "This is President Trump the pilot of SS American airways. During the next four years, we will be in the air as we navigate to find a stable route to advance our Democratic ideals. " Is it that Democrats on that ship are so infuriated that they will pray or do anything to have the pilot successfully fly that ship? Talk about cutting off their nuts to spite their manhood.

@Riley. "Dr Green, all most of the world knows about the US comes from our news media and they are so far out of touch with reality that they were shocked with Trump was elected.  They have no idea what most people think or what motivates them, they just parrot what suites their own sensibilities."
 Hell, reporters were on TV crying, some babbling out of disbelief. Trump's victory invigorated our democracy, which was going south with complacency and familiarity, which breeds contempt.
 
"The rest of the world reads about how Trump is universally hated and is destroying our country, but at the same time realize our economy is doing great.  The stock market is doing dangerously well, employment even among minorities is at a high, and people have money to spend. "
 
Oh, such contradiction and dissonance.  I wonder what will happen in Trump's second term.
 
"If they read the news they expect Trump to be kicked out tomorrow over the Russia scandal, but they also know that doom and gloom prediction has not changed in over a year and he's still there."
 
The press is hoping for a self-fulfilling prophecy. Trump is bad, millions of Russians beamed over and voted for him, therefore Muller will get him.
 
"I suspect many have just lost faith in the media and in order to pretend they still have credibility, the media caters to the diminishing group that still believes what they tell them."
 
Remember the enlightened have an alternative source for their news. BBC is not so bad.

Riley,
Trump didn't create the laws, he is using his bigotry and that of his base to justify separating children!! He has shown no remorse in his actions Riley. Dr. Green, Trump is a racist. Why is the majority of his staff are mostly White? At least Obama had a diverse White House and you are condoning this nonsense!!

"Trump didn't create the laws, he is using his bigotry and that of his base to justify separating children!!"
 
Apparently you cannot read. The Obama admin started this with some court order and Trump reversed it!
 
Try to think for a time. 
 
And the biggest racist of our era is Obama and his two twisted AGs
