Mind and Destiny

“I make no pretension to patriotism. So long as my voice can be heard ... I will hold up America to the lightning scorn of moral indignation. In doing this, I shall feel myself discharging the duty of a true patriot; for he is a lover of his country who rebukes and does not excuse its sins. It is righteousness that exalteth a nation while sin is a reproach to any people.”- Frederick Douglass

Doonesbury Cartoon

The “Weekend Comics” section of the Daily Star published a Doonesbury cartoon by Garry Trudeau, that provides voters with an interesting perspective regarding the presumptive Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump.  The cartoon shows Trump making the following claims:

“No one is more conservative than me.”

“No one respects women more than me.”

“No one is stronger on the second amendment than me.”

“ No one reads the Bible more than me.”

“ There’s nobody more pro-Israel than I’m.” 

“There’s nobody that’s done so much for equality as I have.”

“There’s nobody who feels more strongly about women’s health issues.”

“Nobody knows more about taxes than me, maybe in the history of the world.”

“I have studied the Iran deal in great detail, greater by far than anyone else.”

“Nobody’s been more successful than me.”

“Nobody knows banking better than I do.”

“ Nobody’s bigger or better at the military than I am.”

“I’m the lease racist person you’ll ever meet.”

“Nobody knows more about the debt than I do.”

“Nobody knows the system better than me.”

“Nobody builds better walls than me.”

“There is nobody more against Obamacare than me.”

“Nobody knows politicians better than me.”

“Nobody knows more about trade than me.”

I’ve looked into the validity of those quotes and discovered the Mr. Trump actually did make those comments.

Regarding Donald Trump, President Obama warned in 2011: “We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers
