Tossing Salt Presents:
October 30, 2017
Greetings, salutations and all of that fun stuff. It’s Monday afternoon and I’m trying to decide if I have time enough to type up a very quick politically themed Q&A before I have to head out and go to work? I have to be there in 45 minutes and it’s about a five minute drive. Hmmmmm. If I write fast and don’t get too wordy, I think I can do this.
The questions below come from the Facebook page of a group called “Opposing Views”, a political page from out of L.A. that claims to have no agenda. They do obviously and it’s leaning majorly to the left, but that’s quite all right. They have the right to think as they please and I have the right to take their questions and give the answers I please, the correct ones. Are you ready to get political? It must be Monday. I’m keeping the answers short today. Let’s do this…
Yes or no question: Do you think Trump is racist?
Who is more corrupt: Trump or Hillary?
Do you support having “In God We Trust” signs in American schools?
Not really. Schools should be free from political and religious agendas and while I am cool if a person wants to pray or takes a religion-themed class as an alternate class, alongside the regular classes of reading, writing, math and history, I don’t think it should be a big deal and having signs promoting one religion over another is a bit too much.
Jeff Sessions wants a nationwide ban on illegal immigrant sanctuary cities. Are you for or against the policy?
Illegal immigrant sanctuary cities are already illegal or should be. They promote breaking and ignoring the laws of our nation so do I want a ban on people breaking the laws and promoting and encouraging others to break the law? Absolutely.
Do you appreciate the way Obama led America for eight years?
He made our nation weaker with his policies, led from behind, caused civil unrest, helped promote an entitlement society and made our nation the laughing stock of the world. Good riddance to bad rubbish. I’m glad he’s gone.
The number of Americans on welfare is dropping fast under Trump. Do you think Trump’s presidency is good for America’s economy?
The amount of people on welfare and getting food stamps is dropping. Illegal immigration is way down. Unemployment is down. The GNP is up at nearly 3% and the stock market is setting new records every day. I think it’s fair to say that so far, Trump has been good for the economy.
Do you think America is more respected with Trump as president than it was under Obama?
Under Obama, we were considered apologists and jokes to the rest of the world, all bark and no bite. With our current President, they may not like us, but they will respect us and no one wants to poke the bear. Trump has pride in America and American strength, something the former President was majorly lacking.
Would you like to see Elizabeth Warren run for president one day?
I would love to see her run since she’s ever a worst candidate than Hillary, with more lies and inconsistencies in her background. If she was to run, she would be exposed for the work that she is and it would assure whoever the opposing candidate an easy victory.
25 years ago, Ronald Phillips raped and murdered his girlfriend’s innocent 3-year-old daughter. This week, Ohio executed him.
Do you support the state’s use of the death penalty in his case?
Are you glad Trump is president instead of Hillary?
An Alabama lawmakers wants to make castration mandatory for child sex offenders. Do you think that’s a fair punishment?
I think it would have to be applied on a case-by-case basis but what the hell. Go for it. Whatever it takes to keep the kids safe, so be it.
Obama is back on the campaign trail again, and crowds are loving him more than ever. What do you think: Is Obama’s input good for America, or should he stay out of politics?
President Obama needs to show the same respect that was shown to him when he was elected by former President G.W. Bush. In other words, enjoy his retirement, live his life and stay the hell out of politics. Bush didn’t talk about Obama although he had every reason to when Obama blamed every bad thing on the former President. Obama needs to man up and do the same thing for President Trump.
Hillary Clinton inspired Americans everywhere as a First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State and presidential candidate. Do you think she’ll be remembered as a great political leader?
I think she’ll be remembered as a liar, a poor Presidential candidate who lost an election she had no business losing, by the “what difference does it make” comment about Benghazi and for her blame of everyone and everything but herself for her loss of the Presidential election of 2016. And hopefully, she’ll have the image of being the first former First Lady and former Secretary of State to be indicted and sent to prison. One can only hope.
And there you go. I’m through. Thoughts and comments are welcome. Thanks for reading and I’ll catch you on the flip side. Take care.
