Why Trump Won and What His Victory Means to America

By The Prophet of Life

There are a lot of people in the world who are shocked today. Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America. Some around the globe are saying things like “Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people.” Others are saying nothing but feeling dread when they think about the future.

Donald Trump won the election because he tapped into an anger and frustration throughout America. There are plenty of Americans who don’t feel that the system is working for them. They are tired of career politicians who promise the moon but deliver gridlock. Who count on their vote but don’t give them a second thought at election time. That group is Donald Trumps constituency.

Donald Trump won as a Republican despite the fact that the party elite didn’t support him. He ran on a platform of Republican values and 9 of 10 Republicans ended up voting for him as well as people who usually vote for fringe independent party. The Republican party members of congress will likely support him but if they don’t or if there is still gridlock, Trump can always tap into the rage of his constituency and form a third party and run his own slate for congress. If he did that, it could likely transform America from a two party to a three party system.

Now Trump calls on all Americans to bind the wounds of the past and seek unity. I am sure that many Americans would like to do that but can they leave behind their animosity and do that? When it comes to this new concept of a Trump Presidency, many Americans are hoping for the best but fearing the worst.

At its best, A Trump Presidency could reshape America into a more prosperous nation with full employment and a better life for all. Trump could bring new ideas and new approaches to solving America’s problems which, if tried, might just work.

At its worst, a Trump Presidency could become an economic disaster, stand by as Russia takes over Eastern Europe and the Middle East and China takes back Taiwan and overruns parts of Asia. It could set back advancements against global warming as well as advancements made by every minority group, immigrants and Women’s Rights. You could expect a Supreme Court that would likely repeal Roe Vs Wade and Reverse Gay Marriage. You could see the rise of a law and order police state where minorities continue to be gunned down or a war that drafts our youth.

A Trump America could be a place where pollution is rampant, abortion is illegal, the military industrial complex is reborn, differences aren’t respected or tolerated and hate crimes rise. It could be an America where millions have lost their health care, had their social security cut or pensions diminished or are just plain broke. Most of America will live in apartments because homes will be out of reach for an average American. More people will have jobs but they will not pay enough to afford a house and college will be out of reach for most children.

At both its best and worst, Trumps America will be a great place to be rich.

Alligator Drags off Toddler at Disney Hotel in Florida

By The Prophet of Life

A family of four is walking along a lagoon on a Disney vacation of a lifetime. They had just left movie night and were walking along the shore of the Seven Seas Lagoon. Everything is peaceful. The son of the family, a toddler, wades into the water. It’s cool but nice. He splashes around, enjoying the evening. Suddenly, an alligator bobs its head out of the water, opens its mouth and grabs onto the boy. The boy’s father rushes to help his son. He grabs onto the boy and tries to pry him from the jaws of the alligator. The alligator’s grip is too strong. It drags the boy away and into the darkness of the waters away from shore.

This actually happened last night in Orlando Florida. The Graves family was on vacation from Nebraska, they are devastated. Authorities have been searching for the toddler immediately. They searched all night long and into the next day. The body of toddler Lane Graves was found at 1:45 p.m. on Wednesday June 15, 2016 about 15 yards from where the alligator first dragged him off in very murky waters.  Alligators cannot digest fresh meat. They normally drag it to the bottom of a body of water, wait several days until it rots and softens up in the water, and then they digest it. Alligators rarely attack people but it could have been the toddler’s small size that had the alligator mistake him for an animal.

The family has been cloistered away from reporters and just as likely prospective lawyers, by the Disney Corporation. Disney is providing them grief counseling and other things they require. It is hard to know exactly whether Disney is doing this out of an honest compassion for the family or to protect its corporate image. Perhaps it’s a little of both. Witnesses have told reporters that there were no swimming signs but no signs posted that warned of an alligator danger. The lagoon the toddler was wading in channels into larger waterways any number of which could have alligators in them.

It is time that corporations put safety first. There is no excuse for having a waterway at a resort that has alligators in it. Especially when there is not appropriate signage and especially when it is accessible to the public including toddlers. When the bottom line is more important than customer safety everybody suffers. At this moment in time, that particular Disney property is the saddest place on earth.

The Commitment

I read an interesting short story that is a parallel to current world events in regards to terrorism. The story focuses on what is going through the mind of a suicide bomber as his mission draws near. It’s taken from a book 9: 9 Stories of Fiction on Kindle by Author Mark Wilkins. I wrote the publisher and obtained permission to re-print it here.

Here is a link to his author page:

https://www.amazon.com/Mark-Wilkins/e/B01BCK92IC/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_1

Oofa Poofa made a commitment to join the terrorist organization. He came from a poor family in the village of Mamalulu Southeast Dadastan. He was opposed to the tyranny of President Gogo’s brutal regime. He hated the oppression against his village. He hated the persecution of his family for following the Mamasect instead of the more popular Dadasect that most of his nation followed. The previous regime had shown tolerance for his people but Presdient Gogo wanted to wipe Mamaism from the soil of Dadastan forever.

Oofa was indoctrinated into the terrorist mentality. He was given a constant verbal barrage listing the acts of oppression his people had struggled with all of his life. He learned that it wasn’t normal. He was made to believe in the virtue of dying for the cause. He was trained in military tactics and how to shoot a gun. He was trained on how to blend in with a crowd while being packed with explosives and how to pick targets.

Last night, he was sent to the nearby Military town of Kilakilla. He spent the night at a terrorist hideout disguised as a book store. He ate a wonderful meal, perhaps the best of his life. He filmed a video stating that he was opposed to the injustices his people had suffered. He gave cryptic goodbye messages to his friends and family without naming them.

Today was the day that he would make the ultimate sacrifice for Mamaism. He emerged from the terrorist hideout in the guise of a fat man. He walked down the narrow streets into the marketplace. He saw a group of the dreaded Mustafa Guards, President Gogo’s Elite Special Forces. As he walked towards them, one of the soldiers made a statement meant to imply that a fat slob was coming towards them.

 

As Oofa got closer, he began to have second thoughts. He knew that the government would condemn his actions. He knew they might take their anger out on his family. He knew that his death would be a tragedy.  He realized that he didn’t really want to die. He decided to turn around and walk away in the next five steps. He counted them off, one… two… three.

Just then, one of the soldiers noticed a wire hanging out from Oofa’s shirt. The soldier shouted something as he reached for his holster. Oofa knew it was too late for second thoughts. As the soldier drew his pistol, Oofa pressed the button. He didn’t do it as a result of his training. He didn’t do it out of a commitment for the cause. In the end, he did it because he knew he was going to die anyway. An explosion rocked the marketplace killing all of the soldiers. Oofa was a martyr for Mamaism. Or was he?

Famous Designer Dies.

You may have never heard of him but chances are, you know something he designed. Kenji Ekuan designed many things; He designed tools and lunchboxes, audio equipment, motorcycles (like Yamaha’s VMAX) and even Japan’s bullet train. One of his most famous and practical designs is the Kikkoman soy sauce bottle. The iconic bottle with its drip less red cap didn’t exist before he invented it in 1961.

A survivor of the Hiroshima nuclear attack which hastened the end of WW II, Kenji lost cherished family members, his home but resolved to create things. He created things for over 50 years and the world has been enhanced by his designs. Kenji died just the other day, the victim of a heart attack. He was 85.

A Billion People Wake Up Like This, Do You?

Imagine yourself waking up to a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the birds are singing in the trees the air is crisp and smells sweet. Everything is perfect. The harmony of the crisp, sunshiny morning filled with the songs of birds is suddenly broken by a rumbling. It is not the rumbling of a passing truck, or an earthquake. It is the rumbling of your stomach.

The minutes creep by in painful slowness. Like honey dripping from an overturned spoon. But the honey is just a dream and the spoon is the memory that spilled the dream onto the hard concrete of reality.  Then, the pain of each endless minute is punctuated by the sound of the rumbling until it drowns out the birds, blocks pout the sun and turns the sweetness of the fresh morning scent into the stench of injustice. “Why me?” The words echo through your mind and add their voice to the soundtrack of your rumbling stomach.

Then another thought enters your mind “Must eat food!” Soon the rumbling in your stomach is joined by a pounding in your head. It pounds in rhythm to the rumbling in your stomach and the echo of why me and changes it into the wailings of a specter as what was just a thought becomes a plea and then a directive. But there is nothing to eat.

Welcome to every morning for wild animals, the homeless and the poor.

In True Faith,

The Prophet of Life

Third Health Care Worker Treating First U.S. Ebola Patient Quaranteend for Possible Ebola

By The Prophet of Life
A Health Care Worker who may have handled a specimen from Eric Thomas Duncan has been quarantined on a Carnival cruise ship in the Caribbean. Personnel on the ship, the Texas based Carnival Magic, this was done to protect other passengers from possible contamination. The woman reportedly has not shown any symptoms of the virus. This is the 19th day of the 21 day incubation period from the time of contact to the time when Ebola begins showing symptoms in those who contract it. If Ebola is actually proven to be on the ship, it might not be allowed to dock anywhere.

A Second Health care worker who treated Eric Thomas Duncan, the first Ebola Patient Diagnosed in the U,S, has tested positive. Amber Vincent contracted the virus and showed symptoms while on a trip to Cleveland. She got on the plane returning to Dallas with a temperature. Vincent was isolated within 90 minutes of reporting a high temperature at work and has been sent to Emery University Hospital in Atlanta GA by private jet. Nina Pham, the First nurse who contracted the virus from Duncan, is in good condition at the Texas Hospital where Duncan was treated and died. The hospital’s protocols for protecting its workers have been called into question. A Spokesman for Emery University Hospital in Atlanta Georgia stated that none of their health care workers contracted Ebola despite the fact that they have treated three Ebola patients, Americans who contracted the virus in Africa. Several people who came into contact with Duncan before he was admitted to the hospital are being monitored for Ebola symptoms.

Eric Thomas Duncan, The First Ebola Patient Diagnosed in the U.S. Died today. he came from Liberia. He helped take a sick woman to the hospital on September 16th and she died of Ebola a few days later. Mr. Duncan either came to the U.S. to visit relatives or to seek better treatment for Ebola than he could get in Liberia. He was treated with an experimental drug, put on dialysis and a respirator but died anyway.

The first case of Ebola has been diagnosed in a patient in the United States. He came on a plane from Liberia to visit relatives in Texas. The Plane arrived on September 20th. According to doctors, the man showed no signs of infection when arriving in the U.S. but became sick on September 24, four days after arriving.

Two days later he went to a hospital and was put in isolation pending outcome of tests. The tests proved he tested positive for the Ebola Virus. The patient remains in isolation. The man was not a health care worker or a mortician so how he came into contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person is unclear. Coming into contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person is the main way most people contract Ebola.

Officials from the CDC stated that it is almost impossible for Ebola to spread in the U.S. to the point that it has in some nations in West Africa because of America’s “Robust” health care system. The current outbreak of Ebola has claimed thousands of lives in West Africa.
