Trump represents all that’s wrong with America. And he won anyway

arm-of-god

Donald Trump started it and continued to double down on his being a bigot, sexist, misogynist, xenophobic, angry man who ranted and raved. Most of us thought he would lose and so many people didn’t vote.

It’s not that our candidate lost, Hillary was far more experienced, but it was how millions of American’s were manipulated by this mad man. He tapped into the part of America where white people are still mad that we had a black President. And no way in hell we’re they going to vote for a woman. But the worst part was that so many American’s that voted for Trump would oversee all his negative, mean and abusive manners and vote for him anyway.

Even after so many women came forward and said that he forced himself on them, in the same manner in which the video saying he liked to force kiss women and even grab them by the p****. This man, how could he win? We are the laughing stock of the world. You and I both know this man shouldn’t be anywhere near the nuclear codes.

So many American’s want it the way it used to be, a nation run by old white men. Trump continued to say that our President wasn’t born in America until only recently.

He takes to twitter in the middle of the night and says the most stupidest of things. His handlers finally took charge and starting writing speeches for him.

I think Trump needs to address the nation and apologize for all the mean, racist things he had said for 18 months. And he needs to say he will take a Diversity class so that he learns how to be a human being. He showed us his true self and now he’s trying to pretend he’s changed. He isn’t , the same black heart is there.

He’s vowed to build the wall, deport millions of people, Muslims fear him, he called Hispanic’s rapists and criminals. He wants to defund Planned Parenthood and reverse Roe Vs Wade. It’s been a war on women, and he won. Many of us baby boomer women have worked four decades at 76 cents on the dollar and were hoping to see our first woman President who could accomplish wage equity once and for all.

He has no experience in government so he better bring in a team of people who do. And he better learn to keep his big mouth shut. One can only hope that something will bring him down. Another woman coming forward, Trump University lawsuit, and don’t forget he’s going to sue all the women who came forward and exposed that he’s a sexual predator.

It’s only a matter of time, and it will be time to impeach him.

Read this comment by Gregg Popovich on the election he is profound and explains things perfectly about this big mess we’re in.

Hillary raises her voice and men’s hackles go up

http://It’s acceptable for men to raise their voices but when women do it, they say we’re raging, shrieking lunatics.

Last night at Matt Lauer’s town hall, which was called pathetic, Hillary rose her voice and many didn’t like it. Whether it’s in the board room or in the White House, people just have to get used to strong womenSan Eliho Beach and how we too fight for our ideas.

These two strong women. from completely different worlds, come together to work toward a better world where girls go to school and women are empowered.

Educating girls will improve the world, start the path to healing and empower women worldwide. Women are the majority in the world. Tackling the pay equity between men and women, should be our goal for this decade of women going forward.
And where are the 275 girls that Boko Harem Islamic group kidnapped and married off? We must not forget them, ever. #BringOurGirlsHome

Jimmy Carter: losing his religion

A fantastic article about Jimmy Carter calling attention to religion’s negative view of women. From Daily Kos:

For most of his life, Jimmy Carter has been an advocate for human rights. In 1982, one year after leaving the Oval Office, the former US President and his wife Rosalynn Carter, founded theCarter Center, dedicated to advancing peace and health worldwide. Still an activist at 90, Carter has authored 28 books, including a new book in 2014 called, A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power.Over the years, Jimmy Carter, a devout Christian, has become a very strong proponent of women’s rights, to a point where he has spoken out against the falsehoods and extremism we see within the ‘religion’ of Christianity today. In 2009, he penned an open letter, severing ties with the mega SBC/Southern Baptist Convention, after being a member of the Convention for 60 years. Carter said the decision was difficult and painful, yet ‘unavoidable,’ after the Convention leaders chose to take bible verses out of context and claim ‘Eve’ was responsible to for ‘original sin,’ and thus all women must be subservient to men. In Carter’s aforementioned open letter, he expands on his reasons and concerns:

This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women’s equal rights across the world for centuries.At its most repugnant, the belief that women must be subjugated to the wishes of men excuses slavery, violence, forced prostitution, genital mutilation and national laws that omit rape as a crime. But it also costs many millions of girls and women control over their own bodies and lives, and continues to deny them fair access to education, health, employment and influence within their own communities.

The same discriminatory thinking lies behind the continuing gender gap in pay and why there are still so few women in office in the West. The root of this prejudice lies deep in our histories, but its impact is felt every day. It is not women and girls alone who suffer.It damages all of us.

Carter states how the subjugation of women was not always a part of Christianity.

The carefully selected verses found in the Holy Scriptures to justify the superiority of men owe more to time and place – and the determination of male leaders to hold onto their influence – than eternal truthsI am also familiar with vivid descriptions in the same Scriptures in which women are revered as pre-eminent leaders. During the years of the early Christian church women served as deacons, priests, bishops, apostles, teachers and prophets. It wasn’t until the fourth century that dominant Christian leaders, all men, twisted and distorted Holy Scriptures to perpetuate their ascendant positions within the religious hierarchy.

In his letter, Carter discusses the independent group of global leaders to which he belongs, called The Elders. Founded by the late Nelson Mandela, the members have come together on this issue and collectively published this statement to all religious leaders around the world:“The justification of discrimination against women and girls on grounds of religion or tradition, as if it were prescribed by a Higher Authority, is unacceptable.” This discrimination can and must end says Carter. He believes it’s within our power:

The truth is that male religious leaders have had – and still have – an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women. They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter. Their continuing choice provides the foundation or justification for much of the pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world. This is in clear violation not just of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights but also the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul, Moses and the prophets, Muhammad, and founders of other great religions – all of whom have called for proper and equitable treatment of all the children of God. It is time we had the courage to challenge these views.

Thank you, Mr. Carter, not only for the work you do for the sake of our daughters, our granddaughters, and their daughters, but also for our sons, grandsons, and the whole of humanity. Thank you, to you and Rosalynn for creating The Carter Center. And thank you for living by example. You are a good and true man, and this world is a better place by your presence.
