A few months ago I was excited to see Donald Trump jump into the Presidential race. A “REAL MAN,” not one of those Stereotyped Washington Types who was afraid to look a problem in the eye and REALLY try to solve it.  Trump is a man who made me remember Ronald Reagan.  That “IS” has changed to a “WAS.”  Now, I can’t wait to see him go away!  I don’t like Trump’s narcissistic nature.  It reminds me too much of what I once was when booze and “other” stimulants fueled my life.  I enjoyed TV News and Sports.  I loved dealing with the people, the fans.  I DID not like dealing with most TV Anchor types who thought they had the world “by the short hairs!”  I was one of them, though!  Yep, I DID NOT like myself.  It took a “bottom hitting” episode in my life to wake me up to reality.  I looked in the mirror and “saw what I Didn’t like.”  I had become “one of them.”

Politicians closely resemble TV News-types.  The ego’s are the same.  Trump fits right in.  Sadly, our America is in trouble because of our newly acquired “love-hate” feeling toward guys like him. I can’t blame you, though, our past couple of Presidents (which includes the current one), have taken us on a ride, a ride fueled by ignorance, self gratification and our own lack of interest in what’s REALLY going on.  We, as a country, should be tired of being “hoodwinked” by politicians who continually “blow smoke up our naïve behinds,”   and anchors who try to get us to believe every story is “breaking news.”  We buy into everything!!!

Wake up, people.  Step back and analyze what is being said to you by politicos and news media types.  All they are doing is selling air time and their own, tainted, misguided theories.  It’s gotta stop before we all wake up one day and find ISIS at our doors and nobody, with a REAL plan, to get us back on track.  This train ride we have been on has to slow down.  We are headed for a dark tunnel that has no end.  There’s still time to wake up and save Old Glory.  I’m not some John Bircher, seasoned with a “touch of McCarthyism” who thinks ALL are commies leading us to the “fires of hell.”  I am a fun-loving, concerned citizen who wants others to take a second look at what we have created.  Like I said, there is still time to “right the ship” if we can just get the right “captain and crew.”
