A Different Frame Will Not Change the Appearance of a Repeated Subject

May 16, 2017 — George Giftos

Accumulating enormous wealth has ramifications in how it is acquired. We can assume no matter who ever possess it aren’t squeaky clean, due to the process in how whom one must deal with, to obtain it. It doesn’t mean they are all evil, but measured in how the wealth is used.

Long ago a man of good intent was brought forth to face the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem to defend himself, because He spoke of God and His influence was a threat to the power structure of various groups who controlled and counted on the ignorance of the people to maintain that position of power.

Trolling in the Potomac can be dangerous

Mar 4, 2017 — George Giftos

During President Obama’s tenure, there were opponents to many of his policies by Republicans. Some of it was uncivil and some of it personal and much of it justified; but now Democrats are lurking in the Potomac city like piranhas on a feeding frenzy, to tear the flesh off anybody working for, or backing President Trump’s attempt to repair the breach between the races and classes, damaged during the last administration.

Trumpatize the Traumatized into Trumpians

Feb 22, 2017 — George Giftos

Former Governor Howard Dean commented that the young have been traumatized, because Donald Trump was elected president. The outcome might have been different if they made the effort to go out and vote, It will not be beyond belief that the President’s policies will turn them into Trumpians by trumpatizing them before his first term ends.

The Trump Version of HGTV

Jan 9, 2017 — George Giftos

President elect Donald Trump should not estrange himself from his creative ingenuity in real estate and apply it toward his vision for the country a la HGTV, where the status quo has to be gutted for renovation into a functional mechanism of government.

There is much to be done to fix the shortcomings of the out going administration’s failed attempts to make the country safer, prosperous and unified again.

Hope to make America great again with change

Dec 12, 2016 — George Giftos

I was eight years late casting my vote for “Hope and Change.”

“Make America Great Again” Is the hope and change I thought we were getting eight years ago, but didn’t. Now we are!

Making “America Great Again,” is a work in progress

Dec 5, 2016 — George Giftos

With just a few weeks to go before we rid the country of the unpleasant liberal odor the present administration has been trying to leave, a whiff of fresh air is starting to imbue the country with renewed hope. We cannot relax yet, because there is still time left to add to the damage already done. Although I’m not enamored with the style in presentation by the new incoming administration, its platform is reason to feel and believe a new era is on the horizon, that will be more beneficial in all aspects for the endeavors of the country and its legal citizenry.

You don’t have to call 911 for an SOS

Nov 22, 2016 — George Giftos

I consider myself to be a traditionalist that falls in the realm of conservatism, with no party affiliation, rendering my vote to whomever most closely reflects my hopes and beliefs for my country, my loved ones and me. This prevented me from giving any consideration for Hillary Clinton to earn my vote, because of her character and policy.

Compromise determined the direction I took, even with some qualms, because the deception and corruption attributed to her, was just to overwhelming to negate the vote of my eventual choice.

Liberal promises have held minorities in a relationship with a party of false hope that never materialized, like an abused wife remaining with her husband, afraid to live without him, thinking things will change for the better, but never does; and continues to endure the deception, because she doesn’t know there is an alternative.

I and many others are gambling the alternative will finally restore the foundation America was built on.

Another First Amendment Visit

Nov 15, 2016 — George Giftos

Abuse of the First Amendment has been the subject of many of my writings in the past, and the need to look into honing its interpretation and application, where one side retrofits it to their devices and denies it to its opponent. It has become evident a neo liberal motion has invaded the democrat party, denying its protection to any one not in sync with their socialist agenda.

Under their code of political correctness, to express an opinion contrary to theirs is racist, misogynistic and bigoted.

Bar Clintons from future public disservice

Nov 9, 2016 — George Giftos

The sins of the sanctimonious, preordained forty-fifth president of the United States by her party and liberal minions, forfeited her right to fill this position, in spite of law enforcement agencies stymying the revelations in support of her sweeping everything under the rug.

Who Will Be the Winner By Default Leading Up to November Madness

Sep 27, 2016 — George Giftos

I’m surprised Donald Trump has not been sued by the Clinton campaign, when they accuse him of being a liar that infringes on Hillary Clinton’s franchise owner-ship on lying.

It’s 3:00 AM, who do you want answering the phone? That was on a March 6, 2008 campaign ad. But she never picked up the phone at 3:00 AM on September 11, 2012 during the Benghazi crisis. She wasn’t there as promised. No body knows where she was.

Semantics Shemantics, what’s the big deal

Sep 1, 2016 — George Giftos

I don’t understand the Republicans, Conservatives and knowledgeable Independents harping on poor Hillary Clinton and calling her a liar, when she has emphatically professed, in testimony and under oath, that every email originating from her unauthorized server, did not pertain to any classified State Department business, was turned over to the FBI and congressional investigation.

It’s a mere matter of semantics that failure to mention the scrubbed emails that were not part of, “the all the emails” turned over should be considered dishonest.

And after all, hasn’t she apologized for opening our country’s security up to hackers?

The Ugly American

Aug 22, 2016 — George Giftos

The ugly American has popped its head up again. This time in Rio, during the Olympic games. The pride of America and parents of the four guys on the American swim team was knocked down in disgrace.

Constitutional Maintenance

Aug 17, 2016 — George Giftos

What makes the United States unique from most of the world is our freedoms, but lately, it has not treated freedom with respect. Discipline should be a requirement when using it. Looking around, it is very noticeable to see how by the way people dress, use language, adorn their body and express them-selves destructively how freedom is being abused and adding to incivility.

The First Amendment should be revisited and reviewed to see how it can be honed to reflect its true meaning and withstand the scrutiny of the Supreme Court.

Suggestion how to relieve your election anxiety

Aug 5, 2016 — George Giftos

I will not be voting for Republican Donald Trump, nor will I vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton, or Green Party Jill Stein, or Libertarian Gary Johnson. I will be voting for the Supreme Court. In order to do this, I will have to trip the lever next to Donald Trump’s name.

For the confused and frustrated, I advise you to follow my lead if we are to save democracy and our country
