Mocking Obama’s tears is extremely low

Presidents are human beings. Remember this the next time you think about criticizing a politician when he shows emotion. I know, it’s easy to say the tears beneath President Barack Obama’s eyes when he spoke about gun laws and the Sandy Hook tragedy were bullshit because it may feed your political agenda. Or it may just sound good joining the party.

The truth is I am not a political enthusiast. I don’t watch CNN or Fox News. I find politicians to be robotic, hands tied and mouth edited, fixtures propped up in front of people most of the time. It doesn’t matter if he is Republican or Democrat. Their words are always bent by Congress or the House Legislature. All of them. However, the one thing I won’t do is slam or mock a President for showing emotion about a tragedy like Sandy Hook where first graders were mercilessly killed in a classroom.

This is where people will say, “Well, he didn’t cry about San Bernandino or Paris, so what the hell!?” I don’t care. I am not going to do a full spectrum judging on Obama for what he didn’t or did cry over. Everybody has their own way of showing emotion or crying. We all have our get factors. The thing that possesses us to break. I didn’t cry about Paris or several other terrorist attacks. I don’t pick and choose what I cry over. That’s all part of being human and unique.

At the end of the day, Obama is human. Love or hate his politics. Approve or disapprove of his Presidential terms. He is human. A father and husband. Sandy Hook happened on US soil. It stung more than other tragedies. Whenever I think about it, rage and emotion fill my chest, neck and head. I need a moment to recalculate what I was doing. This is why I don’t fault Obama or wonder if he was faking during this speech. It’s human emotion. He was just being human. Far away from being a politician.

So when some makeup packed woman on Fox News wondered if there was an onion peel on the podium, I felt like giving her a piece of my mind. I felt like asking her to wake up and look in the mirror tomorrow morning and wonder how this face gets the privilege of spending her time on earth being called a human. The people who question raw human emotion are the ones we need to worry about. They are the ones holding back our species. I hope she went home, saw that segment and wondered, “How fucking dumb am I?” It has nothing to do with amendments and bills and everything to do with right and wrong. Skip to the 7:15 mark on this video clip from Trevor Noah’s monologue to see the woman make this ridiculously insane comment.

She is what we need to worry about. There’s cynical and then there is insanity with a lack of sharpening. The lack of respect for human decency. I don’t think Obama deserves praise for showing emotion. I also don’t think he deserves criticism. If so, what is this world coming to?

Sometimes, we all need a good cry.

Someone please put a sock in Donald Trump’s mouth

If you know me at all, you know I couldn’t give two shits about politics, don’t fully believe in God on earth and think of religious wars as futile excuses to blow shit up and put a name on it.

So I’m sorry if I couldn’t be more tired of hearing about Donald Trump’s latest speech, hair piece adjustment or stupid statement. When does a politician NOT make a stupid statement? When does a politician, elected or not, say something they will regret or not be able to back up later on? It’s an ongoing robotic robust pile of bullshit being handed to the hard working people of America for decades now. Does it matter who gets elected? Will they be anything resembling the person they were when the campaign started? NO.

Screw Hilary Clinton too. She’s full of it. If she wins, it will be more about the first woman President than anything she will actually change. Do we really think she will reform health care, help schools or create more jobs with her personal touch? Go see crazy somewhere else. The table is full here.

I voted for Barack Obama twice and instead of seeing the valiant fiery speaker I watched for months up until the election back in 2008, I see a robot these days. One that has been twisted, turned, bent over backwards and reformulated into something else entirely. Presidents aren’t human until they make a speech following a school shooting or bombing. Then they talk to us like people for just a brief moment. Everything else is star spangled banners and baloney.

I wish I could be more heroic here and tell you that voting next year will make a different. Letting your voice be heard will only work if you vote for someone with a chance of winning. Somebody who has money.

Trump may have a shred of a chance because he is loaded and is colorful and has several parties interest. He’s a fantastic businessman, shrewd, Republican and can draw crowds with ease. I still don’t think he will win but hear about him every day.

The election is a year away and I have to hear every single update on these candidates. It’s annoying. Politics is something I know I can’t control so therefore I don’t donate much time to it. I’m sorry. You can get up in front of small crowds, make speeches and you are still as full of shit as the rest of us.

You want to know who I think makes differences and gets zero attention. City Alderman’s. Select mayors. A few dedicated suits at City Hall. People who don’t have a team of 50 following them around. The one’s who have to crawl around, scratch, sweat and reach for every nickle they use in their campaign. I can find some dignity in that. Presidential elections are a joke and always will be until an elected official proves me wrong.

Who are you voting for? You only have over 400 days to figure that out.

Rant over.
