UPCOMING COMMENTARIES

Right now I'm creating a commentary about the gun control debate after what happened at Parkland last week. I believe that some points are not being addressed on both sides. I have a different take on this.  

I'm also will addressing the dismantling of our rights and protections (especially TGLBQI protections) as citizens.

GENEVIEVE'S GEMS

A Christian reveals true humility by showing the gentleness of Christ, by being always ready to help others, by speaking kind words and performing unselfish acts, which elevate and ennoble the most sacred message that has come to our world.

POLITICAL INVOLVEMENT

There is the need for all of us to become more politically involved. Whether it be community, local, state or nationally, we really need to make our voices heard to those in power.

PERSEVERANCE

Perseverance will be needed if the concerns we have are to be solved. The pressure needs to be kept on those in power who do not represent their constituents.I have seen too many politicians and leaders sell out their constituents for money and power. I need to remind them that they will not always be in power.




ADVISORY COUNCIL

I was recently nominated to be on the advisory council of my senior center. SAGE (Services Advocacy for G(LBT) Elders is a place where many seniors come to see friends, dine, and participate in the numerous programs available. I will be in the meal committee suggesting ideas from the community on improving meal selection. Maybe I can convince them to serve chocolate cake every once in a while.

DEMS TAKE BACK THE CONGRESS AND SENATE-NOT A SURE THING

I have heard the talk of the Democrats pushing to take back the congress and senate. I don't believe that this is a sure things. The Democrats have made crucial mistakes which created the mistrust of the voters. They had the chance to do something for working people and haven't done it. Bill Clinton gave them NAFTA, which was a bad bill to begin with. The American worker didn't benefit and neither did the folks coming from Mexico. I saw right away that their situation wasn't going to get better for them. 

Many Democratic candidates have made the mistake of engaging the black community as a last resort when things aren't looking good. Why should they vote for you when you were more interested in your big money donors. Hillary Clinton made the same mistake and it cost her in the electoral votes. Working folks aren't necessarily enamored with the Republicans, but they are ticked off with the Dems. They've been lied to, ignored, walked over, and ridiculed. Some folks were surprised when I said that I believed that Donald Trump had a chance to win. I didn't know if he would but that's how it turned out.

Personally speaking, both the Democratic and Republican parties are lapdogs for corporations. The Democrats used to be for the working person. Not anymore.  I will say one thing about the Republicans; when they are thrashed in the elections they circle the wagons and thrash about figure what went wrong. The Democrats will keep making the same mistakes and losing. Couple that with this being the worst group of candidates I have ever seen.

I left the Democratic party over a decade because they no longer listened to people like myself. I never felt the Republicans cared about me. That's why I'm a registered Independent
