So I just watched the Trump Speech from the Al Smith white-tie charity dinner thing. Where Trump and Clinton both gave speeches...
While some of Donald's recited/read aloud jokes made me laugh (especially where she bumped into him and politely said, "pardon me".....), his delivery
was disastrous. He clearly had not read the 'speech' or rehearsed the delivery at all --- a cold reading of a minion's speech. (That's how it came
across. But anyway -- there were a couple of zingers in it....so kudos to the joke writer, hope you got paid!)
But I digress......
The photo above was splashed on The Atlantic mag site. The video (from Global News) indicated that yes, to the right of the screen Hillary is seated
next to the Cardinal.
Yes, they were all standing for whatever reason. Doesn't matter. I don't know if Donald was actually seated on the other side of the Cardinal or
not. But I do notice in that photo, that the Cardinal in red and Hillary in a 'Scarlet' (I call it fuschia) suit, while Trump and Melania were behind
them in grey and black and white........I think it was photoshopped. "shopped"
But whether or not it was shopped, it is an image rife with divisiveness. She and the Cardinal as the reps of the upstanding righteous? And He and
Melania as the villains?
It's -- in my opinion -- political trolling and baiting. Yet I see it on the cover of a magazine I respect. Sigh. Is there no decent, professional
media anywhere at all? Or are we really living Episode One of the Hunger Games?
My inner circle is feeling this stress; so am I. So are many of you all.
So - this is just another effort on my part to calm us all down a little bit. Let's just all sit back and watch as this unfolds in front of us. Many
here claim that voting does nothing and is just an empty gesture toward us peons to assuage our powerlessness.......others want to vote third party or
write-in a word or name or leave it blank altogether.
I've been instructed on how 3rd party votes work - yes, both Stein and Johnson are on the ticket...but they are way, way, way way far out there in
terms of having a solid audience. I've seen Johnson's 'interviews' - and I'm afraid he leaves even more to be desired than does Trump! Stein appears
to be equally ill-prepared, and while I love her rhetoric, she's too much of a Dylan and Joplin and The Grateful Dead type for my taste.
Bernie was the man. He was speaking my language, and there is no other candidate that even comes close to him. So I guess Clinton will have to do
(Don't know about all of you, but I really would prefer to stay where we are than to have World War Three or The American Civil War Redux.) (If you
don't mind.) (I just don't want anymore of the violence.)
So - not sure if I'll follow this ramble or not, but wanted to post it. Do you think that the color scheme and figural composition of that photo is
manipulated? And if so, what does it say to you symbollically?
I found it rather alarming.
And also, who's the dame dressed in Hillary's same color pictured just above her head?
Who was that woman in the red dress and gold/diamond bling with all the cleavage and the white gloves and glasses and 'texting' things???
This is our best?
No wonder so many of us are depressed, confrontational, defensive, insecure, frustrated, bewildered, angry, and anxious.
