The Truth for Once


I feel the need to give you a little truth. In doing so, I am about to be a little bit politically incorrect.
We do not need to take America back or make it great again. No one stole it or made it less great.
Mexico is not going to pay for the wall. We are not going to deport millions of people and break up families. If you think either one is a good idea, you are not being very smart and are probably not the kind of person that I want to know.
In spite of what we say in The Pledge of Allegiance, we do not live in a democracy. Technically we are a Federal Republic. But in reality, we are ruled by an oligarchy. If you do not know what that is, look it up. Reading will do you good. You probably need to do more of it.
Fox News, CNN and MSNBC have an agenda and are not “fair and balanced” or in any way unbiased. Read more. Read newspapers (even online ones). Read lots of opinions and sources and then (stay with me here), THINK! Form your own opinion based on as many facts as your can brain can tolerate.

Speaking of facts, there actually is a difference between facts, opinions and propaganda. You should learn the difference.
Science is real. We know things because of science. Don’t be afraid of it. You have an iPhone and Facebook because of science. It’s your friend.
Global warming or “climate change” as the cool kids call it IS REAL. Anyone who tells you it’s not real is not a smart person.
Racism exist in the U.S. And if you are even a little bit racist, you should seriously work on it.
American Christians are not under attack. No one is trying to take your Bible away from you. Christians are not being persecuted. There is no separation of church and state. You want proof? The Pledge of Allegiance says "under God" and courts make you swear on the Bible. In fact, American Christians wield so much power in this country that politicians pretend to be Christian just so we will vote for them. No one is trying to take your Bible away from you. The gay people are not destroying our families. In fact, we don’t need any help from them. We do a fine job of that by ourselves. So stop saying we are persecuted. You sound stupid.
Poor people need help. If you’re not helping them but complaining about how the government helps them with your money you are not a very nice person.
Be nice to the people who teach your children. Don’t send them nasty emails or yell at them. Their job is 10,000 times harder than your job. You are not a professional educator so just shut your mouth and be thankful someone is willing to teach your offspring.
We do not need to rebuild our military. Our military is the strongest and scariest killing machine the world has ever seen. So stop being afraid and stop letting politicians and pundits scare you.
Guns do in fact kill people. That’s what they are designed to do. If you feel you need a gun to protect yourself in America, you are probably living in the wrong neighborhood and should move before you go out and buy a gun. There are a billion other places to live where you won’t need a gun. Did you know that the U.S. is the most violent nation which is not at war in the world and that there are more guns in the U.S. than toilets?
If you do own a gun, then make sure you know how to use it. Get some training because you still don’t know how to record stuff with your DVR. Go to the gun range and shoot it a lot. Learn how to clean it properly and be able to disassemble it and reassemble it with your eyes closed. It is a gun and it deserves that level of care, proficiency and respect. And for God’s sake, keep it locked up and in a very safe place.
Stop being afraid and/or suspicious of American Muslims.
Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and all the rest are all ENTERTAINERS! Stop getting your opinions from them.
We in the United States of America can afford to house every homeless person, take care of every veteran, feed and educate every child, and take care of refugees and still have money left over for Starbucks and a bucket of KFC.
Unless you can trace your family line back to someone who made deerskin pants look stylish and could field dress a buffalo, you are a descendent of an immigrant. Please stop saying that immigrants are ruining our country. Such comments are like a giant verbal burrito stuffed with historical ignorance, latent racism and xenophobia, all wrapped in a fascist tortilla.

Finally, if you believe that Donald Trump is the worst, ego-centric, corrupt, stupid, lying idiot President in U.S. history, you are correct and you are not alone!
