Last week Donald Trump issued a blanket ban on citizens from several countries. By what is claimed to be a coincidence and for security of the United States these countries could no longer have citizens from there re-entering the U.S. and just happened to have Islam as their #1 religion. Some over 90% Muslim. Yet that's a coincidence. Also a coincidence none of the countries currently on the list had terrorists that took American lives. Yet countries like Saudi Arabia that aren't on this list had terrorist that had taken a total of over 2,000 American lives. How can anyone believe that makes any sense?
P.S.: I'm not being sarcastic
Especially with the stories coming out that Trump has investments in some of the countries not on the ban list yet had terrorists originally from there that have taken American lives. I don't usually get political on my blog but I'm done keeping my anger to twitter. This ban is unconstitutional and can lead to Americans as well as Christians worldwide getting banned or hassled in other countries as retaliation. Protection my ass. I'm not for the ban at all but until Saudi Arabia gets on that list I'm calling bullshit on this having anything to do with protecting American citizens. Bigotry, that's what this is. And when Saudi Arabia makes it on the list in the next Aladdin Disney remake I'm going to call it bigotry too!

Trump's America effect on Jamaicans
There was a report on local news earlier this month that a representative (someone who clearly didn't want to be named) had suggested to Jamaica (my home country where I have lived all my life) that while trade and relationships are okay right now that we should consider creating relationships with other countries like China, India and other Asian countries I can't recall right now. First off we already have a great relationship with China so that stinky ass representative can get deep throat from a piranha. We have Chinese citizens who left their home country to come here and now have generations of well locals, some of which have become top business men and even entered politics. Plus I find it interesting that a Western country would suggest we go make relationships with the East when we have many closer Western neighbours. This 'representative' probably doesn't even know where Jamaica is on a map or the language we speak (it's English which I'm certain readers are aware). Second what the hell does that statement even mean other than offensive and threatening suggestions and undertones? Let me say this right now. Jamaica might be a small island but we know when to lock up and take nothing from people who think they can be striking out of order. We already rejected that prison building offer from a certain past visiting president (I refuse to name that bastard) that apparently thought we were begging for more extra prisons to lock up people. President Obama sure as hell didn't come with that tripe. Only goodwill and respect. Now Trump is in power and the word coming out to our local news and politics is all bad. Jamaicans abroad are even reportedly calling in to find out their rights. Yup, they're calling Jamaica from America to find out their options. Talk about lack of trust. Plus this made the news. Do you know how hard it is to get on local news? We don't have news panels sitting down to discuss what our Prime Minister said last night. We have other things to report on. So when we have almost daily Trump concerns popping up, that's bad. It's almost like our own Prime Minister doesn't even exist!
I could go on and on but I'll just leave it there. Trump's executive orders have been seen internationally as brazen, prejudiced and just plain scary. He himself is often referred to as a bigot, fear monger, fool, unprepared, not a true president and the list goes on. Neither George Bush or Obama were so besieged by negativity this insane just at the infancy of their presidency. At least not in my country. We are not even a mostly Muslim place, we're christian. But this move to ban people and refugees is just disgusting. Even green card holders and the fact that not even travel officials knew about this is just all shades of idiotic. It's like having a surprise reveal of a new house for your mother then telling her you blew up her old house with all her things in it. Yes a new house (protecting America) is not a bad thing but blowing up the old house (Muslim ban) is not the way to move forward. Whether or not people agree with me these are my thoughts.
Plus I'm very bothered by fellow bloggers I know who have fears because of potentially losing their health care and those who depend on Planned Parenthood which does much more than just abortions. I'd never want to have one (but respect the fact that it is necessary for some women and needs to exist) of those but defunding a place that offers multiple types of female care is just delusional and plain awful. I hope those who are 100% Pro-Life are also Anti-Death Penalty. I'm not, I believe some people deserve to be executed. That rally should represent traditional females like myself but some of that rhetoric.... And don't get me started on people at that Pro-Life rally who think women should not be allowed sexual protection outside of condoms. Get out of here!
Definitely stopping now since I've gone to angry tangent level. If you're offended then that's just the way the cookie crumbles. I'm too angry for others who I feel are being stepped on to care. Usually I'm much kinder but today I'm just not in the mood. Does anything about this Muslim Ban or Trump make you feel any insecurities or anger? God Bless and my next post will be Friday (sorry for putting Monday there before).
