Fortunately, my five closest neighbors are true Americans who believe in the Constitution, America, and the freedoms we stand for; therefore, they are all Republicans or right-wing libertarians (I am one of the latter). Unfortunately, speaking up and exercising your right to freedom of expression is not that easy in Southern California. My neighbors have had political posters of local Republican politicians stolen or vandalized. I have had signs stolen, stakes broken and signs overturned, sometimes early in the morning, sometimes after dark.
I assume that the billboards taken down in the morning are of liberal socialists walking their dogs in the morning, and the billboards taken down at night by spiteful leftists who will not give me the same opportunity to engage in the political process as them. demand I pay them. I’m tired of hypocrisy, tired of being called a racist (I’m not). Turns out this isn’t just a left coast thing, it’s also happening on the east coast, in the Boston area, where people are tearing down Donald Trump’s campaign banners.
Who is the left trying to fool? Demanding politically correct speech, demanding that I fit my speech into their approved narrative: folks, that’s not free speech, that’s coercion, and if I spoke out of line in the office, I could lose my job, but you can throw up. hate speech for Donald Trump across the country, in our schools, agencies, universities, corporations, even at Starbucks. Why do we have double standards and how is this acceptable? How does this fit into our rights as citizens? How is it that our ethics are challenged by those who disagree?
Now I disagree with all of this and want to switch gears and start asking the other side questions:
Is it unethical to skip government ethics classes?
There was an interesting story in the Washington Times titled; “There is no evidence that Hillary or her aides have received ethics training,”
“The RNC had sued to see the records of Mrs. Clinton and nine of her top employees, including many who relocated to work on her presidential campaign. Of those, only three had records showing they had completed the training. The revelation comes as Mrs. Clinton and her team face deeper questions about whether she used the apartment to benefit the Clinton Foundation, an international charity run by her family and close friends,” and it turns out; “Six Clinton Confidants at the State Department who lack a record of having taken the required ethics training were Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Anne Marie Slaughter, Caitlin Klevorick, Jake Sullivan, and Kris Bladerston.”
Were these employees told not to take the required training courses or did they sign that they had done so in case the problem arose later? If so, is there a conspiracy, if not, how come these employees, including Hillary Clinton herself, were exempt? Did they miss those classes on purpose so they could say that? “We didn’t know that what we were doing was illegal.” And, of course, the ethics manager was reportedly intimidated by his work in pushing the issue. Again, there is no “Equality” when it comes to Hillary, she is a white woman above the law, just ask her?
To hell with Hillary’s hypocrisy: I’m sick to my stomach from this BS. Presidential Material – Surely, you are joking.
