Do Unto Others

How politically informed are you? 

I watch every news conference and press conference I can: The LIVE and REAL version. Not something the press conjures up.

I am proud to be an American citizen. I also know it is my personal responsibility to stay informed. I used to believe mainstream media. What was I thinking??? I watched President Trump’s live news conference the other day. I took notes, as a real journalist does. The next day, I read headlines stating President Trump was unhinged. What? He was totally calm. He even stated he was having fun.

Mainstream media has NOT been reporting real news for so long, they don’t even know how to find it! And, in my own personal opinion, they are liberals who just can’t accept that Hillary isn’t President. I have voted in every election since I was 18. Did I vote for every President elected since then? No. Did I riot in the streets, destroying property?  NO! I am an American. I show respect, supporting the leader of the free world, because that is what true Americans do.

I have a degree in journalism and I can tell you, they are not reporting news correctly. To be fair when writing a story, you have to be fair and accurate, allowing both sides to speak. Actually, to be an adult, the same rules apply.

I will say, as having previously served on the Oakland City Council, and lost election, words hurt. People I had known for years messaged me during election, being so unkind I was speechless. It is shocking the means people will go to to get elected. I could have won had I said all I know about a certain person. Did I? Obviously not, because I lost. And, I am proud of that. 

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,”

Words to live by.

Enjoy the weather. Have a wonderful weekend. God Bless!
