    A few things brought up.......

    I usually don't go for these sorts of things because they often sound "holier than thou" and I don't believe anyone is perfect or has all the answers, even if Mr. Trump seems to think in his mind, he does. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzbHXKp6Y6I

    I do think the author of this put some thought into it and take it or dismiss it as "holier than thou", it seems there are some valid things said here, to at least, think about, if nothing else.




    "I feel the need to drop a little truth on y'all. So buckle up... I'm about to be politically incorrect."

    "We don't need to take America back. No one stole it. It's right here... you're sitting in it. Chillax."

    "Mexico isn't going to pay for the wall, and we're not going to deport millions of people and break up families. If you think either one is a good idea, you're not smart and probably not a person I want to hang out with."

    "We don't live in a democracy. Technically we are a Federal Republic. But in reality, we are ruled by an oligarchy. If you don't know what that is, look it up. Reading will do you good. You probably need to do more of it."

    "FoxNews, CNN and MSNBC have an agenda and are not "fair and balanced" or in any way unbiased. I'll reiterate... 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. (Another opportunity to show off your mad reading skills.)"

    "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 and probably should not be dressing themselves or caring for children."

    "Racism exists. And you are probably a little racist and should work on that. Seriously."

    "American Christians are not under attack. ... No one is trying to take your bible away from you."
    American Christians are not under attack. We are not being persecuted. We 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 -- we don't need any help from them, thank you. 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 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 stupid job. You are not a professional educator so just shut your mouth and be thankful someone is willing to teach your offspring."

    "You don't know what Common Core is. You think you do, but you don't unless you're a teacher. So stop complaining about math problem memes on Facebook. You can't do the math anyway."

    "ISIS is not an existential threat to the United States. We do not need to rebuild our military. Our military is the strongest, scariest, most badass 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 like a billion places to live where you won't need a gun, or even need to lock your front door."

    "If you do own a gun, then make sure you know how to use it really, really, really well. Seriously... get some training because you still don't know how to record stuff with your DVR. Go to the gun range and shoot the thing a lot. Learn how to clean it properly and be able to disassemble it and reassemble it with your eyes closed. It's a freaking gun and it deserves that level of care, proficiency and respect. And for God's sake, keep it locked up and away from your kids."

    "If you are even a little bit unhinged or pissed off... you shouldn't have a gun. And the Founding Fathers would totally agree with me."

    "Stop being suspicious of American Muslims. The guy sitting next to you in the cubicle at work is probably more of a threat to you than any Muslim since he has to listen to your uninformed ranting day after day."

    "Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and all the rest are ENTERTAINERS! Stop getting your opinions from them. (Here's where that reading thing can really be an advantage.)"

    "Stop sharing Facebook memes that tell me to share or else Jesus won't bless me with a laundry basket full of cash. That's not how prayer works. And I don't want money delivered (even from God) in a laundry basket. Nobody ever washes those things out and they just keep putting nasty dirty clothes in them. Yuck!"

    "We are the United States of America, and we can afford to... house every homeless veteran, feed every child, and take in every refugee 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."

    "That's all for now. I feel better."
