Hillary Clinton is a Cancer

I know I will piss off some folks, and some may even go so far as to unfriend me on Facebook, but I am going to step into this national fray, utilize my First Amendment rights, then step right back out.

Hillary Clinton is cancer.

When someone is diagnosed with cancer they have two basic options; treat it with dangerous chemicals and radiation, or do nothing.  If they o nothing they are going to die, yet if they poison their body with chemicals and radiation to eradicate the cancer they may still die, but they have a fighting chance to survive.

I have heard all the rhetoric about Donald Trump regarding his lack of political experience, the fact his company went bankrupt before he became a billionaire, his open microphone fiasco with Billy Bush, to all his alleged sexual assaults that have come forth in the past two weeks, right before the election.

Before anyone starts yelling and screaming let me point out that men do boast when among other men and in private conversation.  I have heard the very same thing among women, and when I mentioned something about it they told me I “was just one of the girls.”  Yeah, that helped my ego on many levels.

As far as saying alleged sexual assaults, sexual assault is a crime and as a crime nobody is guilty until proven so by admission or court of law.  Before anyone goes on to say I do not know how hard it is for women to come forth when they have been sexually assaulted should understand I have worked with, dated, and been friends with many women who have been assaulted.  I also know men who have been sexually assaulted by women.  Think how hard it is for men to come forward in that instance.

People will claim the sexual assault claims are only a part of the campaign to smear Trump.  That may or may not be so, but it is up to the courts to decide that and not those of us who do not have first hand knowledge.

Next, we can look at Hillary.  People will say she has been scrutinized and vetted more than any woman in history because of the many investigations but she has not been charged nor convicted of anything.  This is true, but why does it seem she is always involved in situations where she is investigated?

I am going to introduce you to something called proximity.

The legal definition of proximity is the Gestalt principle of organization holding that objects or events that are near to one another are perceived as belonging together as a unit.

Hillary had a private email server that she used for federal business, this is not in dispute.  The fact she used a private email server for State Department communications is also illegal, that is not in dispute (per FBI Director, James Comey).  That she lied about deleting emails in violation of federal law (36 C.F.R. § 1222.24 and 36 C.F.R. § 1236.22(b)) is also not in dispute according to the FBI.  Her not being indicted for the illegal activities shocked the nation.

To enforce the illegality of her actions Comey ended his speech by saying, “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.  To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions.

Benghazi, Whitewater, Filegate, Travelgate, Chinagate, her Cattle Futures Miracle, Lootergate, the Norman Hsu incident, and more recently the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Family Foundation, and now the emails leaked by Wikileaks.

The possible scandals surrounding the Clinton Foundations are still coming forward, but I find it interesting that the Clinton camp has not refuted the emails that have been leaked that show malfeasance among her staff, the DNC, and herself.  Nor have they refuted the emails that show collusion between the Clinton campaign and the Correct the Record SuperPAC and the Priorities USA Action SuperPAC, which violates federal election laws.

Now back to proximity.

Hillary has proximity to all of these events, actions, and organizations, and under the legal definition of proximity it would appear she has had her hand, either directly or indirectly, in each of these scandals.  Just because she has not been indicted or found guilty in accordance to law does not mean she is not involved.  Even the old mobsters were able to beat racketeering and murder charges easily, but ended up falling due to tax law.

Donald Trump also has proximity.

Yes, he did say those vile things on a hot mic, yes there is a current lawsuit against him by Katie Johnson for rape, yes his organization has been involved in thousands of suits, but he has not been criminally charged with anything, much like Hillary.  The difference is he also has not been investigated for illegal activity other than discrimination in the 1970s.

He has had proximity to thousands of young women of which only a handful have come forward with claims of inappropriate behavior or sexual assault.  Yes he has had proximity to many lawsuits, both as a plaintiff and as a defendant, but when you look at his business and the legalities of real estate and contracts it is amazing there have not been more.

There is also the proximity of these women coming forward after he invited the accusers of Bill Clinton to the debate and the proximity of the election.

Yes, Trump is a misogynist, yes he is crass, yes he speaks before he thinks, and yes, he is a hard pill to swallow.

Now back to my original statement; Hillary Clinton is cancer.

We know the destruction Hillary has caused already over the years being involved directly and indirectly in politics.  She has been caught in many lies in her official capacities.  Just like cancer she eats away at what it means to be a free America.  Her camp has already revealed what they think about “needy Latinos,” Catholics, Southerners, and Bernie Sanders supporters, thus further alienating people.

Trump, as stated earlier, is a hard pill to swallow, much like the chemotherapy of cancer treatment.  It makes you sick, but it is a better path to take than letting cancer run wild and eventually destroying you.

Ok, it is dark now, I am tired and hungry, and I feel it is time for me to back out now.  I have said my piece, I am going to vote for Trump against the wishes of many of my good friends, but we must vote our conscious whether those around us agree to our decision or not.  It is, after all, my decision.

Before any third party folks say there is another choice, I am sorry but I have not been impressed with Gary Johnson or Jill Stein.  Hell, Johnson has demonstrated on several occasions he ahs no clue about foreign relations or even name a foreign leader.

Anyway, I’m off now.  You can flame if you want but it is not going to change a thing with me, and contretemps will do nothing but unbosom your sophistic reasoning.

No, seriously, you would not believe it! Or, if you know me, you probably would. Continue reading I was bored so you would not believe what I did! (clickbait style)

Depression and Suicide: Options But Not The Option

Today I read an article entitled, “When You’re in the Gray Area of Being Suicidal” and it got me to thinking about myself, my life, and my future.

Recently I lost my job, not by any fault of my own, but the company closed after 21 glorious years.  I do not blame the owners as they have been like parents to me over the many years I worked there and it was definitely time for them to retire and enjoy their lives without the headaches and heartaches of running a business.  Even so, I find myself in a situation now that I have never been in; unemployed.

We need to start profiling

The very large number of the politically correct (PC, aka, wusses) crowd out there are up in arms over some of the comments made recently regarding radicalized Muslims.  They scream in horror as Donald Trump calls for the refusal of Muslims into the country until our political leaders figure out, “what the hell is going on.”[1] A recent reply to a post I made on Facebook regarding a mass stabbing in China carried out by radical Muslims included, “And what difference does it make to whatever argument you’re stating tha the attacker was Muslim?”[2]

The problem, folks, is there is a common denominator to these attacks in San Barnardino, CA (2 Dec 2015), Chattanooga, TN (16 Jul 2015)[3], Garland, TX (3 May 2015)[4], Moore, OK (25 Sep 2014)[5], West Orange, NJ (25 Jun 2014)[6], Seattle, WA (1 Jun 2014)[7], Skyway, WA (27 Apr 2014)[8], and Port Bolivar, TX (6 Mar 2014)[9].  All these attacks were carried out by radical Islamists.  And the ones listed are just for the past two years.

Mr Bone, your insignificant opinion on our Bill of Rights has been acknowledged, and found lacking

Mr. Bone,

You are using emotion and neither logic nor science to make a point regarding gun control in the U.S.  I believe you, sir, may have barrel envy.

In your post you stated the 5.56 round tumbles and tears the body up.[1]  Now granted, I am using a shorter, much less graphic description of your post, but essentially that is what you said; and, you are both correct, and very incorrect. Continue reading Mr Bone, your insignificant opinion on our Bill of Rights has been acknowledged, and found lacking

When will we call it terrorism without regard to religion?

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines domestic terrorism as:

“Domestic terrorism” means activities with the following three characteristics:

  • Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
  • Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
  • Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.[1]

Nidal Malik Hasan opens fire in the Soldier Readiness Center at Fort Hood, killing 13 and wounding 30, all the while screaming, “Allah Akbar” and the government calls it workplace violence and not an act of terrorism.[2] Continue reading When will we call it terrorism without regard to religion?

Shame on you for trying to shame me

I will not be shamed for who I am.

I have not done anything wrong against you, your race, your religion, or your being.

You cannot shame me for who I am.

The Merriam Webster Online Dictionary defines shame as:

“a feeling of guilt, regret, or sadness that you have because you know you have done something wrong.”[1] Continue reading Shame on you for trying to shame me

Genealogy and citations: Problems and solutions

One of the biggest problems I have in my genealogy research is the proper citation of information and evidence I have gathered.  For years I simply added the information to my trees, after making sure it was correct information, but I failed to cite my source, or if I did, I did it in such a fashion that I was not able to relocate it several years later.

With this lesson firmly in place, here is the information regarding proper citation of records and evidence in genealogical research, not only for you, but to help reinforce it for myself.

Parents should NOT have to be born AFTER their children.

I do understand the need to feel as though you are connected to something larger than yourself, and for many that means being connected to royalty.

I recently received a printout of a family tree from a family member that shows direct lineage through our Russell line to the major royalty of Europe.  After reviewing the tree for a few seconds I pronounced it completely fictitious.  My family member who presented me with this printout said it was correct because the woman who had done it was married to a pilot.  Now that is all the confirmation I needed.
