!! VOTING for Dummies !!   ~ by Jesus!


Jesus said “Judge not, lest ye be judged.” (Matthew 7:1)  So who am I to judge this overstuffed dummy?  Well, aren’t elections very much about judging the suitability of candidates?  BUT, since I have little personal knowledge of the candidate, I will leave it to highly-qualified leaders who have an actual basis for their severe judgement.  (And I remind you that Trump said “I am your retribution” — getting even is so telling, making him, and many who support him, decidedly unChristian. —Look in the mirror. ‘Dat you with a stick in your eye? Let’s see!)  Note: Jesus also said “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” (John 7:24)  SO, what does that that looks like, up close? —

BUT FIRST, let’s remember that “We the people” have a jury system as a check against injustice, intended to help us reflect Divine judgement. And a jury of 12 brave, upstanding New Yorkers – fairly chosen in court by “both sides” – have risked their lives to find a former president guilty of 34 counts of fraud intended to rig a federal election! (Getting 12 New Yorkers to agree about anything is rare.)    THE MATH: 

100% agreement !   34 x 12 = 408


“Former White House chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, has said that President Trump “is the most flawed person” he’s ever known, CNN reported. “The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it’s more pathetic than anything else. He is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life,” Kelly has told friends, the outlet reported. ~ TheHill

“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Mattis writes. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”  ~General James Mattis, in The Atlantic.

A FEW RECENT TRUMP LIES (with factual corrections from NYTimes):

“While Joe Biden is pushing the largest tax hike in American history – you know, he wants to quadruple your taxes.”

President Biden has not proposed quadrupling taxes. In fact, he has consistently vowed not to raise taxes on anyone earning less than $400,000.

“I mean, what he’s doing with energy with an all-electric mandate, where you won’t be able to buy any other form of car in a very short period of time.”

Mr. Biden has not implemented an electric car mandate. The administration has announced rules that would limit tailpipe emissions from cars and light trucks, effectively requiring automakers to sell more electric vehicles and hybrids. It doesn’t ban gas cars.

“And think of it, for four years we had no terror problem.”

There were in fact terrorist attacks in the United States during the Trump administration. In 2017, to name one, a native of Uzbekistan plowed a pickup truck down a bike path in Manhattan, killing eight people. The Justice Department said the driver, Sayfullo Saipov, carried out the terrorist attack in the name of ISIS.


QUOTE from famous early 20th-century journalist H.L.Mencken, on the presidency: “As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people …. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
