This past weekend, it was Pride in New York City. Seeing all of the rainbows and free spirits was definitely a reminder that hate will never be greater than love. At least not always….Let’s get it.
1) Donald Trump for truly being an absolute clueless idiot
Last week, the world was shocked by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. Though many believed the decision to be both a poor and unnecessary one, there was one person (*cough…cough…Donald Trump*) who applauded the UK, in particular Scotland, for taking its country back. Problem is Trump failed to realize that the Scots voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU. In fact, they are now looking into becoming independent from the Brits, who ultimately voted to leave.
Now, everyone knows that Trump’s politics are rather questionable, but he could at least read about current events…I mean, it really isn’t that hard to read a newspaper. At least Twitter called him out on his blatant stupidity.
2) The UK for proving that the world is still a hot racist mess
Everyone knows that America has its backwards-thinking moments. The media does enough to emphasize that around the world. However, it’s always sad when it’s clear that the same racism exists elsewhere.
Many believe that Britain’s movement to leave the EU a.k.a Brexit was successful because of the country’s older population. A number of Brits are concerned about the immigration laws affecting their country and simply wanted to keep the Muslims out.
Now, this discussion definitely deserves a paper or two, but we don’t have the space for that on this blog. However, it’s clear that xenophobia and racism are going to always play a major role in political decisions around the world. Gosh, I still fear for the U.S. elections….
3) America for just being a mess
After the Orlando shootings, the topic of gun control laws surfaced again in the U.S. Things have gotten so tense in Congress that sit-ins and yelling have become the recent norms.
I won’t spend too much time on this topic because honestly it annoys the hell out of me. If Congress can’t agree on laws after Sandy Hook, then I’m not sure that they’ll agree after Orlando either.
Again, though today’s post has been about politics, I tend to stay out of the mess. However, I’ll always maintain that no one needs an automatic weapon for either their personal safety or for their exercise of an “American right.”
At least Jim Jeffries and Australians get it…
