SEDITION

GOOD DAY!  I AM SURE JUST AS I HAVE BEEN, MANY OF US HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THE NEWS.  UNTIL JUST A FEW DAYS AGO, I WASN’T SURE WHAT OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY MEANT.  IT ISN’T USED TYPICALLY IN NORMAL, EVERYDAY CONVERSATION.  BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE MEANING OF SEDITION IN THE WEBSTER DICTIONARY AND THE DAILY WISDOM WORDS DEFINITION.  WEBSTER DEFINITION OF SEDITION-CONDUCT OR SPEECH INCITING PEOPLE TO REBEL AGAINST THE AUTHORITY OF A STATE OR MONARCH.   

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-REVOLTING AGAINST THE PLACE YOU LIVE, ALTHOUGH YOU LIVE THERE FOR  THE BENEFITS THE GOVERNMENT OFFERS YOU. 

I WILL ONLY BE POINTING OUT MY OPINION TODAY, AND YOUR OPINION MAY DIFFER.  FIRST, I AM EQUALLY RESPECTFUL OF YOUR OPINION AND SECOND, I AM HAPPY TO HAVE YOUR OPINION SHARED WITH ME.  THERE IS A PLACE FOR COMMENTS BELOW, CALLED “JOIN THE DISCUSSION” BELOW THIS POST.  WE ARE NORMALLY NOT ON A HIGH TERROR ALERT WITHIN OUR OWN COUNTRY.  I FEEL IT IMPORTANT I SHARE I AM NOT OFFICIALLY A DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN BUT HAVE VOTED BOTH WAYS IN THE PAST.  I TRULY LOVED JOHN MCCAIN AND HIS ABILITY TO STAND UP FOR WHAT HE STOOD FOR AND SHOW RESPECT TO HIS OPPOSITION REGARDLESS OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES.   

CALL ME OLD FASHIONED, BUT I AM A FIRM BELIEVER IN VALUES, AND A MORAL CODE AND COMPASS.  THERE ARE WORDS LIKE INTEGRITY AND HONOR THAT STILL MEAN A GREAT DEAL TO ME.  I ALSO FEEL A WORLD LEADER REGARDLESS OF THE COUNTRY THEY REPRESENT, STAND FOR THESE THINGS TO THEIR HIGHEST EXPECTATION AS THEY SET THE EXAMPLE FOR OUR YOUTH.  I CAN’T SAY I HAVE FELT THIS WAY ABOUT OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT.  I FEEL AS THOUGH THERE IS SOMETHING EXTREMELY SELF-ABSORBED ABOUT HIM AND IF HE CAN’T CARE FOR OTHER PEOPLE AS MUCH AS HE CARES FOR HIMSELF, ESPECIALLY DURING THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC, THEN PERHAPS THIS IS NOT THE RIGHT PLACE FOR HIM.  HE TALKS A GOOD TALK, BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO READ DAILY WISDOM WORDS, I KNOW YOU MUST HAVE SEEN MY COMMENT, “ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS” IN PREVIOUS POSTS.  I HAVE ALWAYS FELT THIS WAY AFTER HEARING MY FIRST BOSS AT A CAREER JOB SAY THIS.  IT SIMPLY HAS STUCK WITH ME EVEN THOUGH I DO WRITE A COLUMN ABOUT A DAILY WISDOM “WORD”.  I FEEL OUR PRESIDENT’S ACTIONS TELL A MUCH DIFFERENT STORY THAN HIS WORDS.  I FEEL OUR PRESIDENT’S ACTIONS DO NOT MATCH THE WORDS HE USES.  IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO REFER TO ME AS A SKEPTIC, I AM NOT SURE, BUT  I LOOK FOR ONE’S ACTIONS TO MATCH THEIR WORDS.  FOR EXAMPLE, HE IS A CHRISTIAN.  HOW CAN THIS BE WHEN PRIOR TO RUNNING FOR OFFICE, HE DID NOT GO TO CHURCH OR SPEAK OF RELIGION IN ANY WAY EXCEPT TO MENTION THE BIRTHER PROCESS IN REGARDS TO OBAMA.  WE LATER FOUND THIS TO BE A LIE. 

AS I WRITE THIS, I SEE WHERE MY MAIN ISSUES BEGAN WITH TRUMP BEFORE I EVEN KNEW HE WOULD RUN FOR OFFICE.  THIS WAS A START.  I FEEL AGAIN IT IS IMPORTANT FOR ME TO SAY I SIMPLY DON’T LIKE EXTREME VIEWPOINTS OF ANY KIND, AS I ALWAYS SEE THERE ARE MANY CASES WHERE RULES ARE FOLLOWED BUT THEY ARE REASONABLE ONES THAT MAKE SENSE FOR A DEMOCRACY.  IN ORDER TO BEPARTISON, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SEE BOTH SIDES OF THE PICTURE, ALTHOUGH YOU MAY SEE ONE SIDE FITS BETTER FOR YOUR BELIEFS.  YOU ARE NOT AN EXTREMIST BECAUSE TO BE ONE, YOU WOULD ISOLATE PART OF OUR COUNTRY.  THIS IS A MUCH DEEPER THOUGHT PROCESS THAN A POLITICAL PARTY WHICH MOST PEOPLE FEEL IS SO IMPORTANT.  PERHAPS THIS IS WHERE MY VIEWPOINTS DIFFER.  I FEEL IF SOMEONE IS TO BE THE LEADER OF THE NUMBER ONE SUPERPOWER IN THE WORLD THEY HAD BETTER BE ABLE TO GET ALONG WITH ANYONE AND SEE EVERY SIDE OF THE PICTURE.  WHEN THEY DO TAKE A STANCE, THEY LET OTHERS KNOW WHAT THIS STANCE WILL BE PRIOR TO TAKING AN OATH TO BE PRESIDENT OF A COUNTRY LIKE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 

 

IT SEEMED TO EASY YEARS EARLIER FOR TRUMP TO RUN HIS OWN TELEVISION SHOW, THE APPRENTICE TO FIRE OTHERS. THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN HERE IS THAT A WORLD LEADER MUST TAKE A FIRM STANCE OFTEN TO BE A LEADER.  HOWEVER, TRUMP MADE HIS DECISIONS WITHOUT MUCH THOUGHT GOING INTO THEM.  ALTHOUGH I ENJOYED THIS SHOW, I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, I WOULD HATE TO HAVE HIM FOR A BOSS.  THEN AS I SAW HIM STEP UP TO WANTING TO RUN FOR OFFICE, IT APPEARED TO ME WITH THE BIRTHER SIDE HE WAS TAKING IN REGARDS TO OBAMA THAT HE COULD POSSIBLY BE AN EXTREMIST.  AS THE LEADER OF A DEMOCRACY, EXTREMISM DOESN’T FIT THE ROLE AS WELL AS IT MIGHT UNDER DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES AS THE MAIN PART OF A PRESIDENT’S JOB IS TO BE A LEADER TO THE WHOLE COUNTRY AND WHEN YOU BEGIN LABELING OTHERS WITH TITLES, SUCH AS “FAKE NEWS, BIRTHIST, DEM’S, AND WILL NOT TAKE A STANCE ON EXTREMIST ROLES SUCH AS WHITE SEMPRIMESY, WHICH OF COURSE CAUSES US TO BE RACIST IF WE ARE TAKING AN EXTREME STANCE WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS.  THESE WERE MY “RED FLAGS” AND AS HE BEGAN HIS COURSE DOWN A PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER, AND OBAMA HAD THE JOB OF WELCOMING HIM TO THE WHITE HOUSE WITH THE BIRTHER CONSPIRACY UNDER TRUMP’S BELT, THE FACT OBAMA COULD DO SO WITH CIVILITY AND KINDNESS AND TRUMP SO EASILY ABSORBED THIS, AND, LIKE A LIGHT SWITCH, SOAKED UP THE WELCOME, HE CROSSED ME AS INSINCERE.  I NORMALLY TAKE A SMALL INTEREST IN POLITICS, BUT THIS PARTICULAR PERSON SEEMED TO BE TROUBLE.  I HAVE CONTINUALLY SEEN EVIDENCE OF THIS IN A MORE RADICAL FORMAT AS HE HAS GONE THROUGH HIS PRESIDENCY ISOLATING AND DIVIDING PEOPLE RATHER THAN UNITING THEM.  AGAIN, AS A WORLD LEADER, YOU MUST TAKE A STANCE BUT YOU WALK A FINE LINE BETWEEN DOING SO WHILE MAINTAINING A BIPARTSEN ATTITUDE THROUGHOUT YOUR LEADERSHIP.  IF I WROTE MORE, I WOULD BE WRITING A BOOK, NOT AN ARTICLE.  I THINK YOU SEE THE JIST OF MY THINKING AND I HOPE IT MAKES SENSE ALTHOUGH YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO DISAGREE WITH IT.  PLEASE SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BENEATH THIS POST, OPPOSING OR NOT, AS I WANT THEM HEARD.  I TOO, MAYBE MISSING OTHER PIECES  OF INFORMATION TO FORMAT SUCH A STRONG OPINION.  I THANK YOU FOR READING ABOUT SEDITION THIS EVENING WHICH LEADS TO THIS LONG, LONG POST.  SAMANTHA.

Perfectly said Samantha 💕 Our country was once known as a land of American dreams, a promising future and morals. Now it seems people riot when things don’t go their way, our future is scary & so many lack compassion. Trump is just a rich boy who used the president title to add a notch into his bucket list. He never told a speech as a whole country, all his speeches were for his supporters only. He is and was never president material.

Much love to you always,
Catherine ❤

Trump from the beginning had a thing for one-sided story. This singular act was the achilles heel he never knew existed.
It may surprise you if I say that he rightly feels that everything he is currently doing is right. Well that makes him incorrigible.
Over 220 member of the house have already signed his impeachment, for the second time…
I’ll always say this; he is trouble.
