As a veteran I want to make it crystal clear that I disagree with 99% of any and everything Donald Trump and John McCain stands for. As always Donald Trump seems to place himself in a stupid place whenever he speaks. Mr. Trump disrespected all veterans with his comments in regards of whether or not John McCain is a hero; with that said, I need to say the following:
It amazes me how everyone and all media outlets have their panties in a bunch because of the stupid comments Donald Trump made about John McCain. The media has turned this into an everyday headline leading story.
Where was all of this outrage when sitting members of Congress were accusing President Obama of being a terrorist, comparing him to Hitler, accusing him of not being a citizen, and calling him a liar while the whole world was watching during a State of the Union Address?

As a United States Veteran Vietnam Marine, I’m proud of the people who carried out a successful mission (http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/16/middleeast/syria-isis-us-raid/) to get the job done; Congrats all around! With that said I got issues, the media; left and right are trying to report it like it wasn't a significant accomplishment.
I know why every media outlet is trying to downplay the significance of the success of the mission; it’s all about President Obama, facts first.
Secondly: The President Obama haters went out of their way to give British Special Forces credit for accomplishing the mission, until cool heads prevailed and let it be known that it was American Special Forces who got the job done. How low will they go? My point is this, the media doesn't want this President to reach a level that he’s head and shoulders above his predecessors; simply because he’s Black, I’m talking Republicans and Democrats.
One doesn't need a Masters’ degree to figure this out; it only takes utilizing something you were born with, your common sense. There is no way the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) can be taken out of the Koch Brothers billionaire empire, the Apple computer empire, the Bank of America day to day financial operations and expect things will not miss a beat.
One thing we all know, players gonna play, haters gonna hate. I know the majority of you are scared to say it; I ain’t scared to say what’s real.

As a Black American, the more I listened to the questions, the more I was pissed. This President has done more than any other President to do something about Immigration Reform; and yet undocumented immigrants are continuously blaming President Obama for the lack of it.
The people who are campaigning for legalization has absolutely nothing to say to Republicans and the far right; the only reason I can come up with is this, they feel that they can say anything to the Black President and too cowardly to say something to those who outright don’t want them here.
Get a heart, this President is the President for all the people, and have illustrated that. There are Black people in this country that needs the President also; as Black people we will not take a back seat to anybody who came to
to better their lives.
Those of you who don’t know, we who are descendants of slaves didn't come here looking for a better life; we were kidnapped, there is no equivalence.

I’m trying to figure out why certain people don’t utilize one of the most important things in life they were born with, common sense.
When people campaign each and everyday about how much they love GOD and how much GOD love them, I’m trying to figure out; ok so what’s your point.
The real way any of us can show that we love GOD, and GOD love us back is to send a positive message about what you’re doing to make your neighborhood a better and safe place for you and your family to thrive.
The only thing the average person wants out of life is to live peacefully and in harmony with others.
One out of every fifty messages, especially on Face Book of how you know GOD love you has absolutely nothing to do with the betterment of how you’re contributing to yourself and others for the good of society.
There are very few comments in regards of how ‘Black on Black Crime’ has become a plague in the Black community. When we don’t respect the people who look like us, it’s foolish to expect the people who don’t look like us to respect us.

As a Vietnam Marine War Veteran, I’m getting sick and tired of talking heads and retired generals appearing on any media outlet they can find to pulverize the President about he doesn’t have any strategy going forward in regards to how to approach
None of these people have a clue of what’s being discussed in the situation room, if they did, Osama bin Laden would still be alive. One thing for sure, in this day and age, generals don’t die on the battle field.
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) or Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has never seen any upfront and in person fighting on a battle field. John McCain got shot down in
and lived in the Hanoi Hilton throughout the Vietnam War, although Mr. McCain
suffered as a POW and all of us owe our utmost respect to him; but the man
never saw any real action on a battle field.

As a Vietnam Marine veteran I know for a fact when the House of Representatives and the Senate gets a heads-up of what our brave men and women of The Navy Seals, and our other Special Forces; our people on the mission lives are compromised.
I’m not saying these people are giving secret information to terrorist groups, I am saying these people talk to journalists for political reasons which lead to news organizations reporting on where our troops are, and what there mission is by an undisclosed person who have knowledge to what the House and the Senate knows.
People like Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) need to shut-up and let our military to what they do with out Congress input of the strategic moves of what these brave men and women do each and everyday.

The Movie ‘
I believe if we as a people, I’m talking Blacks and Whites can come up with a dialog to respect the right to agree to either of us disagreeing; I think we can brake through this level of hate that a few have been successful at.
kinda made me proud to be Black in America. The reason I used the word
kinda, is because I’m not all the way there yet. When I watch what’s happening
in today’s society in America,
the movie depicts something a world apart from what’s taking place today.
As a person raised in the South in the early 1950s’, I witnessed things that let me know
America has progressed in a big way
since those days; however, the journey still have a long way to go.
Since Barack Hussein Obama became President, race relations in
have deteriorated. This deterioration by know means is the fault of President
Obama, this deterioration became prevalent because the acts of a few who just
couldn't live with the fact that a Black man is living in the White House.
During the push for equal rights for every American to vote, the majority of Americans were down with that; Whites stood shoulder to shoulder with Blacks. However, there are some today trying to turn the wheels of progress backwards.
I believe one of the most important actions that can bring this backward progress to an immediate halt, is for Black people to focus more on derailing Black on Black crime.
Let me go a little deeper on why I used the phrase, “I’m kinda proud to be Black in
I see White people participating in, and using racists terms and not cognizant
of their actions. I see Black people not mindful that they are participating in
acts, and saying things allowing Whites to believe that they accept themselves
as second class citizens.
