So are you ready to get political? No, don’t worry. I’m not going to talk about the craziness going on here in Scotland County, aka Laurinburg, NC, where our City Council is trying to build a $14,000.000 new City Hall that no one in the city wants and would be a major waste of taxpayers money. I won’t sit here and talk about the blatant disregard for the people they’re supposed to represent and how every single person on the Laurinburg City Council needs to be replaced and never allowed to hold public office again. I wish I could talk about that, but they don’t listen or care anyhow what we, the people of Laurinburg, the people who they’re supposed to represent, think. I’ll just stick with the national political scene instead.

And that leads me to the site, “Opposing Views”, a political website that I follow on Facebook, and what they have to say. They claim to have no agenda. I claim that they do. And it’s definitely not a pro-Trump or pro-conservative agenda. Not even close. But along with that agenda, they also have some great questions to ask their readers. Those questions, I’ve copied here and I’m going to do my best to answer them, honestly and to the point. I don’t care about right, wrong or political correctness. I’m just telling it like it is and the way it should be. If you don’t agree, let me know. Comments and thoughts are welcome. But regardless, I’m still right. Let’s do this…

Agree or disagree: Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch need to be investigated for Clinton’s emails scandal.

Investigate why Lynch and Bill Clinton met in secret while Hillary was under investigation. Investigate why Hillary lied repeatedly to Congress. Investigate why Hillary and her people bleached her computer sever and destroyed government issued phones with hammers. Investigate how classified material was shared with people who didn’t have security clearance. Investigate what happened to all the money that the Clinton Foundation raised for earthquake victims in Haiti that was never given to the people. Investigate, charge and prosecute these two. The sooner, the better.

Simple question: Is Donald Trump doing a good job as president?

And simple answer is yes. Just ask the people in Texas suffering from Harvey. They’ll tell you.

Rioters who destroy property should be forced to pay for the damages. Agree or disagree?

Agree. If you destroy something that belongs to someone else and isn’t yours, then it’s your responsibility to pay for and replace the damaged item or else get locked up and go to prison.

Agree or disagree: The winner of the popular vote should be president.

Disagree. If that was the case, then New York and California would be the only states that matter and the rest of the country would be ignored and have no say in the election of our leader. The Founding Fathers realized this and that’s why they created the Electoral College. It’s the way that we elect our leaders for a reason and it’s the right and best way to continue to elect our President. This way, everyone has some sort of say in the matter and not just two states.

The latest polling from Gallup finds that Trump is the least -liked president in history at this point in a first term.
Yes or no: Is Trump a bad president?

Trump doesn’t have to be popular to be effective and a good President. He’s doing what our country needs, not what it wants and we should be thankful for it. We will be better off in the long term as a result of Trump and his presidency. It’s just bad that the media and the brainwashed sheeple can’t see this and want to hate Trump instead of opening their eyes and thinking about our country instead.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, fresh off his presidential pardon, is now thinking about running for senate in 2018. Would you vote for him?

Nope, but that’s only because I don’t live in Arizona. If he was running in North Carolina, I think I would be finding myself wearing a “Arpaio For Senate” button. He would definitely be better than John McCain.

Al Sharpton says no tax dollars should be used to restore the Jefferson Memorial since Thomas Jefferson was a slave-owning racist. Your response?

Al Sharpton has no credibility when it comes to anything having to do with taxes (since he doesn’t pay his) or racism (since he’s one of the biggest racists in our nation’s history). Jefferson may have owned slaves, but it was a different world and culture back then and today’s standards can not be applied to over two hundred years ago. And don’t forget, Jefferson also wrote the “Declaration of Independence” and for that alone, he deserves to be honored.

Do you think Hillary needs to be charged and prosecuted for storing classified information on her personal server?

Send her to jail. Lock her butt up. ‘Nuff said!

“Democrats would rather see this country fail than see my father succeed.” – Eric Trump
Do you think he’s right?

And the sad thing is, he’s 100% correct. Democrats have forgotten all about representing the people and doing their parts to improve our nation and make things better for everyone. It’s all about “get Trump” and they don’t care who gets hurt in the process. They are so consumed by their hatred of Trump and desires to bring him down and make him fail that absolutely nothing else matters. Very sad!

And that’s all of that for now. Time to go watch “Once Upon A Time” over at Netflix. Mr. Gold is cool! Thank you for reading. Comments and thoughts are, as I said earlier, welcome and appreciated. Let me know what you think. And until the next time, I’m out of here. Take care and I’ll catch you later.

Ubuntu!
