Trump by his election as President (which is dubious at best) is Commander-in-Chief of the U.S.A military.  His job is to support the troops at all times.  Instead, he has caused a division among the finest serving straight, bi, gay, transgendered and straight soldiers.  He has insulted transgendered persons by calling them a “burden.”  Since when is a person willing to die or be fatally injured – a burden?

Donald Trump: “transgendered soldiers are a burden!” dismisses the investigation

 

 

Trump the Despicable!

Post-Traumatic Syndom Disorder often accompanies “soldiers who are serving or who have served. Being on the front line of a War is impossible to conceive.  Soldiers need to band together with support from their officers.  Now, Trump has singled out transgendered soldiers to denigrate.   There will always be racist, homophobic and hateful soldiers serving in any country, at any given time.  Now, Trump has enabled them to harass their own comrades.  Fifty-eight retired brass has written to Trump to reprimand him, but the hurt and violence has been unleashed.  It is noteworthy that some “foot problem” enabled Trump to dodge the Vietnam War.  Neither older sons have volunteered to serve their country.

The World Looks On

Australia, New Zealand, U.K., Canada, Thailand, Spain, France, Austria, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Sweden, Bolivia, Belgium, Estonia, Finland… all allow trans men and women to serve. Working with trans men and women is unavoidable for American troops, even if Trump’s desperate Tweet was implemented.

Karma and Justice

How many of these crosses represent:
straight, gay, bi-sexual, lesbian, transgendered soldiers?

History will not be kind to Trump.  Hopefully, justice will bring him to account for his hateful policies.  A Grand Jury is currently involved in looking at the possibility of possible collusion of Trump, his family and his campaign with Russia.  If there has been money laundering or other criminal activities – ‘heads will roll.’  Can he pardon everyone?  This is a man without a conscience.

Quotes from Michelle:

1. “There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.”

2. “If my future were determined just by my performance on a standardized test, I wouldn’t be here. I guarantee you that.

3. “Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude.

4. “You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”

5. “We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.”

6. “One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals.”

7. “You can’t make decisions based on fear and the possibility of what might happen.”

8. “Success is only meaningful and enjoyable if it feels like your own.”

9. “When I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”

10. “We learned about dignity and decency – that how hard you work matters more than how much you make… that helping others means more than just getting ahead yourself.”

11. “Find people who will make you better.”

12. “We learned about gratitude and humility – that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean… and we were taught to value everyone’s contribution and treat everyone with respect.”

13. “Choose people who lift you up.”

14. “I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity.”

15. “When I get up and work out, I’m working out just as much for my girls as I am for me, because I want them to see a mother who loves them dearly, who invests in them, but who also invests in herself. It’s just as much about letting them know as young women that it is okay to put yourself a little higher on your priority list.”

16. “At the end of the day, when it comes time to make that decision, as president, all you have to guide you are your values, and your vision, and the life experiences that make you who you are.”

17. “I’ve seen firsthand that being president doesn’t change who you are. It reveals who you are.”

18. “We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.”

19. “And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond; that you do what you say you’re going to do. That you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them and even if you don’t agree with them.”

20. “Success isn’t about how much money you make. It’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.”

21. “When they go low, we go high.
