I'm still waiting on Donald Trump to call for building a wall on the northern border of the United States. After all, it's far longer than the southern border,and terrorists can sneak through it just as easily there as below. Probably even more easily since it's so long and so unprotected. Surely he's as serious about protecting America as he says, I'm certain that that must include protecting it on the north. Not just where Mexicans come in.
I'm also still waiting for Donald Trump to call for registering all Christians and to have the government watch churches. After all, since he's explained how concerned he is about religious terrorists and wants all Muslims registered and watched because of terrorism by Muslim extremists, then no doubt he is concerned about ultra far-right Christian extremist terrorists who blow up government buildings and legal abortion clinics and kill doctors, policemen and innocent citizens. Surely he's as serious about protecting American as he says. I'm sure that that must include protecting it from all religious extremist terrorists. Not just Muslims.
Indeed, I'm also waiting for Donald Trump to condemn the mass murders at the Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic. This is an easy one. It was a mass murder. A police officer was killed, also innocent American citizens
lost their lives. This is like a gimme to golfers, giving them the three-inch tap-in. So...something, anything. "It was awful," there's a start. Surely, he's as serious about making American great again as he says. I'm sure that must include protecting it from mass murders. Not just from Muslims and Mexicans and women and the disabled.
For that matter, I'm waiting for any Republican candidate to say something, anything about the mass murders in Colorado. But so far there's just been silence. Nothing. Not a word about a mass murder where a policeman was slain, along with American citizens. Hey, how's that for "leadership"?! Oh, wait, sorry, Mike Huckabee of all people did just finally refer to the killer as a "domestic terrorist." And I applaud him for that. If only if he would have stopped there and not said it was especially bad for people in the pro-life movement. Personally, I think it's most bad especially for the people who were killed and then for the people who were threatened.
Mind you, I'm not holding my breath while waiting. I've kept active in the meantime. I'm willing to wait -- but after a while entropy kicks in, so you have to keep going in the meantime. Yet, while going on, I wait...
