Fear of Orange

Updated on October 14, 2017

Last year’s election was one of the greatest things that has ever happened……if you are Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela or Saudi Arabia……oh, and North Korea…..let’s not forget about “Rocket Boy”. What wonderful times they are if you are a country that benefits from devaluing the US Dollar, destabilizing the US economy and setting the state of equal rights back over 70 years! Hooray for subtly declaring PoC, women, LGBT and those directly affected by DACA to have absolutely no rights whatsoever by appointing blatantly racist, misogynist and literally criminal staff members to the White House while we were all being distracted by whether or not some athlete was kneeling or standing.
Orange-man, you have strong-armed the American voter into agreeing to yet another failing business venture like your university, your steak company, your clothing line and, of course, your many failing hotel/casino ventures…including one in the island province of Puerto Rico that you have back-handedly thrown shade on and refused to give any help to whatsoever unless the camera lens is pointed directly at you. It is interesting that some of the Indigenous Peoples of this country have managed to run their casinos for decades and turned a solid profit and returned that profit, (for the most part) to their communities while you openly are complicit with the theft and raping of their lands and people by the oil industry and white agenda.
Speaking of strong-arming and acting like a mafioso towards allies and enemies alike, Rocket Boy sure did call your bluff. How about that? Instead of standing firm on the world stage and stating what America was going to do to protect her interests around the globe somebody must have dropped their woobbie in the dirt because you sure did take to Twitter and show your maturity level by throwing around every high school lunchroom insult. What, are you Karen from Mean Girls? I’m waiting for you to say ,”You can’t sit with us!” to Angela Merkel at the next G20 summit. Did the jocks give you Atomic Wedgies in the boys locker-room? Did the class tramp rebuff your advances with your tiny hands? What was it?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I sure didn’t want HRC to be my CIC any more than most any other American Veteran. That would have been a disaster. But, we all know that if Mattis wasn’t between you and the big red button….we would all be human glow-sticks by now……except for you…you would be deep in the caverns of NORAD. You are all for increasing funding for our military because they are disposable resources for you. Let’s bomb Syria, let’s level the DPRK, let’s wipe out Venezuala….oh hell, let’s nuke the NFL Hall of Fame! While you are at it, Colin K. lives in San Jose. Let’s declare martial law there and send in your pals from the National Socialist Movement to take care of things for you. I wouldn’t put that past you one bit.
You are an idiot, surrounded by idiots, big idiots, yuuuuuge idiots. How about when you have that second scoop of ice cream that no one else gets to have in the State Dining Room….how about you ask for some of that tasty Polonium-210 topping? It’s a Russian specialty.

      Yes, I agree. America will succeed because we challenge the norms - It's our history. We stand together - even if we have different ideas about success. But we know: a house divided against itself will not stand. (Lincoln, the Bible) How is division making us stronger?

      Simple: one flag, three colors: red, white and blue.

      No orange there.

      Well as you know, i heartily disagree. I think if trump fails, the country succeeds! But i wont fault you for your strong stance either.....Because you are able to accept my views without calling me a stupid libtard commie america-hating shill for the muslim caliphate...:-)

      America will succeed....because it is of, by, and for the people. We the people.

      You and me.

      I appreciate your firm stance on your beliefs. It is very clear the country is well divided when it comes to President Trump and his agenda for change. I am keeping an open mind, and I guess in the end we will see if he makes things better? I won't be on the side that wants him to fail, because that would mean the country fails. So far I feel he is doing a good job. Unemployment is at new lows, stock market is reaching historical highs, welfare rolls have been cut, jobs numbers are up, and getting better. ISIS has been all but eradicated in Iraq and Syria. He got China to put sanctions on NK. This is something that other presidents have not been able to accomplish. And hopefully tax breaks are on the way. I don't really care about the he said she said tweeting. I fully expected that. I care about the changes in Government that make it better for all. He is off and running, and just my opinion I think he will be one of the best President we have had in many years. I don't care about his abrasive transparent manor, I care about results.

      Trump is a man full of misgivings and misdirection. Read research: people who start businesses tend to try to cut corners (legally and illegally) to get ahead. (I didn't say that, the research does in New York Times and science journals. HP obviously does not even qualify. Hp is superb and honorable.)

      Look at Trump's suspicious nature constantly. Look at how he made his money. Listen to what people who worked with him has said - if you can't believe these things - not "fake" news - then, orange is your color regardless.

      We will not be flying away. This is still a republic dedicated to all Americans. Even those who sport orange and are green with jealousy and rage and sing the blues have a place here. I second the finished comment.

      Keep writing great Hubs, my friend. We will not ride the Orange Boogie Train.

      Yes we will disagree sharon. There is no problem with that.

      I will say i have fought long and hard for having my beliefs, and called every name in the book.

      But i dont care. What matters is the world we leave to our children.

      Guird up your loins....cause us anti trumpers are not going anywhere.

      Standing this ground with those who share our beliefs.

      Mita kuulu...(finnish. Not sure what it means, just popped in my head!!)

      Those who keep saying that DJT is doing a great job will refuse to receive reality therapy. (A legitimate treatment approach for those who go through rehabilitation and deal with not facing facts.)

      You banter away; it's legal and people will continue to deny the truth because it's not orange.

      The federal deficit as of the end of Sept. was 666 billion. Three six's right wing, friends! Check your resources. That ship might be leaving without you back to Andromeda.

      Keep up the great work.

      Yes Dear, " For me, I have long given up bantering about the President. As far as I can see he is doing a good job. I don't listen to he said she said reports. I can see the media do not report any of his accomplishments, and dwell on petty twisting of words. That's not news to me. That's just my opinion. We will have to agree to disagree.

      Heck, we have had mostly White presidents, one black president, and one amazingly divisive orange president. Don't tell me America doesn't believe in equality! (lol).

      The "salt-white" or alt-right, whatever you prefer, would have to agree that Obama carried himself more presidential and DJT is constantly acting like he just landed from Andromeda (orange, baby!). He may actually know a Rocket Man. (lol)

      Excellent rant.

      It's within your rights to speak up about the president. Other presidents would probably laugh. You my friend, might have to deal with God knows what.

      By the way, I like my oranges grown in Florida or California. Keep them away from politics - they tend to get squashed. Did I offend?

      We may be on the next shuttle to Andromeda's prison planet - or Russia.

      Lol! No thanks. Ill stick to my own research. Im done reading anything the alt right has to say. And i can see you do not read anything other than that. So kind of you cant really tell me anything when you do the same.....

      And im not in a frenzy whatsoever. I am 100% sure of what i believe. Would love to ignore ignoramuses, but you tell me...how do i ignore the president??

    • Sharlee01 profile image

      Sharon Stajda 6 months ago from Shelby Township Michigan

      Yes Dear, "Fist up" people with common sense ignore people that that fight without real cause. Did you ever consider you are being kept in a frenzy. Perhaps if you just took a bit of time , and did a bit of nonpartisan research. You might feel differently? For me, I have long given up bantering about the President. As far as I can see he is doing a good job. I don't listen to he said she said reports. I can see the media do not report his accomplishments, and dwell on petty twisting of words. That's not news to me. That's just my opinion.

      If you want to sink your teeth into a real story. I picked up something very interesting from the Sessons questioning yesterday. When asked about the Obama administrations Uranium One deal, he pretty much admitted that there is an open investigation on the matter. You know the deal where 20% of our uranium was sold to Russia? There is now a undercover person that worked for the FBI, and wants to out the entire scam... He claims to have evidence how the Clinton's funneled 145 million into their foundation. As well as how the Obama administration broke several laws to get the deal past. This man's attorney "Victoria Toensing" has a scheduled meeting with Senator Grassley to discuss what her client will testify to. And the fact her client was threatened by the Lynch DOJ. This is a sad scandal that will be entered in to our history books. Plus there are actual human beings with faces and names making these claims. Not unidentified sources s much of our news is obtained as of late. I like faces and names when it comes to news. I dislike he said she said...

      Yes it is. And it happens daily and non Stop. Non stop.

      So, until he knocks it off, our country will remain in defensive mode, fists up.

      And until more people call him on it instead of making excuses for it, he is given tacit consent to continue.

      Like his vile talk about women was poo pooh'd as locker room talk.

      And his offensive crooked hillary, which he uses to this day.

      The problem is too many people condone it. And they are responsible for the meaness. Cause they dont care when its done by him.

      Sharon Stajda 6 months ago from Shelby Township Michigan

      Yes Dear, Not sure you got the point of my post. I was very simply making a point or you could look at it as my opinion. In my opinion it just is unnecessary to insult someones physical appearance. It is easy to do, and as I said feels good for a moment. However, then it appears foolish, and mean spirited. And a far as the President, I have the same opinion of his poor way of expressing himself by insulting people. It's unnecessary, and mean spirited.

      You may not resort to insults, but your prez does.

      Fat cow

      Who'd vote for that face?

      Try n touch her? Look at her!

      Crooked hillary

      Obamas not an american citizen

      Low energy jeb, etc etc etccccc.

      He claims to be christian....so obviously he likes being insulted, cause thats what he does unto others.

    • Sharlee01 profile image

      Sharon Stajda 6 months ago from Shelby Township Michigan

      "Fear Of Orange"? This is such a insulting statement. I voted for Obama the first time around. Did not take me long to realize I made a mistake. I never resorted to insulting his looks. Although, I had o=some choice thoughts on the subject... I could have went directly for the throat. I found he had ex-stream blue lips, and a pin sized head. WOW! That sort of felt good. But, it certainly was not kind, now was it? You have every right to complain and dislike the president as well as his agenda. But do you have to insult his physical appearance? Would you appreciate anyone critiquing your appearance? Just not nice.

      Your rant has many holes, and it would be to timely to dispute. I can suggest you do some research, and look to several outlets to get information. Most of what you said just is not true.
