I’ve been really troubled by all the hate and all the vitriol and all the race-baiting coming from the likes of Maxine Waters and coming from those in Hollywood, in the Entertainment Industry, and in the mainstream media. The harassment, the inciting of harassment (which we all know will lead to violence, just as it did on the softball field last year at the annual Congressional softball game), the targeting, the vilification, the name-calling, the death wishes and the wishes for physical harm, the treating of fellow Americans with contempt and without due respect is uncalled for and uncivilized. We are Americans and are supposed to be tolerant and respectful. We are supposed to be the example to the world of how freedom liberates the human soul and spirit and inspires one to great heights. We are not supposed to be the example of how a country predicated on human freedom is ultimately destructive of itself.
President Trump is without a doubt making the changes and implementing the policies that are making America Great Again. When America is great, the opportunities are passed on to ALL Americans. So let’s not pretend that Trump is not good for this country.
Yes, we are becoming Great Again. We can all take pride in that. We thought that after the Bush and Obama years, it would almost be impossible to see the country turn around so quickly and successfully. But Trump has made it happen.
The greater challenge, as it turns out, may be to put our differences aside, put our grievances, and put our personal agendas aside, and treat each other once again with love and respect. In other words, can we be good again?
In that spirit, I made the following meme.
