How Hillary Clinton lost the Respect of the People, and the Election

A lot of people I know are unhappy with the outcome of this past election.  They're blaming Libertarians, they're blaming the Green Party and they're blaming people who didn't vote.  But the only person they should be blaming is Hillary Clinton.

Clinton's campaign had more funding than any other candidate running in the primary and in the general election.  Hillary Clinton had more experience than any other candidate running in the primary and in the general election.  The Clinton's were well-established politicians that had a lot of support from democrats, because of their years in public service.  This should have been a cake walk.


In 2015 when she announced that she would be running for president both my husband and myself were happy supporters.  Hillary offered pretty much the same platform as the candidate before her with less enthusiasm.  And if Bernie Sanders had not run for president then perhaps a self-righteous, typical Democratic politician with no passion would have been fine.  But Bernie Sanders did run.  He ran, and he was passionate.  He was honest.  He made sense.  He refused to fund his campaign through Super PACs.  He brought awareness to Hillary's acceptence of large sums of money for Wall St speeches and pressed for the transcripts.  He was inspiring and it wasn't his campaign he was running; it was our revolution.  Hillary almost lost the nomination.

She did everything she could to win.  She played dirty.  She accepted funds from anywhere.  The DNC, lead by Debbie Wasserman, plotted against Bernie and denied him access to voter database files.  Donna Brazile cheated and gave Clinton the questions that would be asked at the debate.  I even remember her answers changing to sound more like Bernie's at some point, and that was weird.  Nevertheless, she won.  She won, and she learned nothing by almost losing.


There are a few things Hillary could have done between the nomination and the general election to help secure the presidency.  With the issue of her personal server and emails still lingering, Hillary did not need anything else to make her look corrupt.  Therefore, she should never have hired Debbie Wasserman Schultz for anything having to do with her campaign after she was forced to resign from the DNC.  Another thing she could have done was pick a different Vice President.  If she had ever thought about getting the base excited, she surely would not have chosen Tim Kaine.  When everyone found out about Donna Brazile sending Hillary the debate questions Hillary should have immediately came out and apologized.  She should have given a heartfelt apology to Bernie and his supporters.  At the same time she could have asked for their support and stressed the importance of us banding together.  But she did nothing.


I was not going to vote for Hillary.  She did not inspire me.  It wasn't until this race that I lost respect for her, and so many other Democrats that supported her campaign.  I believe still, that she is into the whole pay-for-play thing. I think she's a liar. BI was affraid that she would be bad for our country.  On the other hand, I did not know if Trump would be any better.  His lack of political experience and prejudiced remarks made me unsure if he would be right for our country.  So I did what I thought was the responsible thing to do; I voted straight Democrat.  As I left I wondered how many people would actually make their way to the polls to vote for a candidate that they are unsure about. Now I know.

A Blog About Blogging -Someone Please Notice Me!

I've been spending some time joining social networks for Bloggers and checking out other blogs. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of people have a theme for their blog. The other thing that they have, that my blog doesn't have, is a header. I've seen so many pretty header images and catchy Blog titles. I'm wondering, "Is my blog missing something?" I chose not to use a header because I think it will clash with all the colors on my page and make everything look too busy. I chose not to stick to one theme because I have a million things to say and they come in a variety of different topics. I haven't been getting a lot of comments. So, I'm not sure if it has to do with the layout of my blog, or something else like that. I read somewhere online that for every 100 people that view your blog only 10 will comment. I can say that the social networks have paid off. Most of the comments that I received came from people who are members of those networks.

Bratz Big Kidz Music Stars

I tried my hardest to catch these dollies on sale this year. I planned to buy four. One for each of the girls. But they were selling out like crazy. My daughters just love Brat dolls. I don't know why. They have big heads, they break much easier than Barbie and they seriously overdue it on make-up. I was happy when MGA came up with the Bratz Kidz Dolls. These dolls don't where as much make-up. What I liked most about these Big Kidz, is that they are NOT dressed in slutty clothes. Although Yasmin's outfit still shows a little tummy, it is much more appropriate than others I have seen on this brand of doll. So anyway, as I searched the net for the new Bratz Big Kidz Music Stars, I could not find Sasha anywhere. I found the Bratz Big Kidz Snap-On Doll Sasha (who's skirt is way too short), but I could not find the Music Stars doll. I checked everywhere I could think of, (in the US) and found nothing. However, while searching the net I found that many stores in the UK ha

Selecting New Eyeglasses (It's Never a Bad Idea to Consider the Price)

I accidentally threw away my glasses one night, (that's so me, I had put them in a plastic bag with some snacks). That was over a year ago and I just recently took on the challenge of selecting and purchasing new eyeglasses . This is a challenge to me, because I always have a difficult time selecting the best glasses for my face shape and skin tone. Honestly, I hate the way I look in any glasses and if I didn't need prescription glasses in order to operate a vehicle, I would go without them. (I do not recommend that anyone else do that, and I'm sure my optometrist would scold me). In order to prevent myself from getting another ticket, I had to take on the task of finding some glasses that I would feel comfortable and confident in. This time around I did some online research on how to pick out the perfect glasses . I watched some videos, read some articles, figured out my face shape, and then forgot almost everything as soon as I walked into the optical shop and saw

Week 29 - At The Beach

Thursday Thoughts

I guess there comes a time when every mother has to come face to face with their teenager and let them know who's boss. Mother/daughter relationships can be difficult during these years. This Thursday's Thought: "Mother Nature is providential. She gives us twelve years to develop a love for our children before turning them into teenagers." ~William Galvin The reason behind the thought: My daughter crossed a line last night. This line crossing showed blatant disrespect and has changed our relationship forever. My daughter turned 13 in March. It's only been a few months and one of my worst fears has already come true. The fear that she would one day forget how much I love her and how much I've been here for her through the years. I've never had a teenager before and this is all new to me, but one thing I am not going to do is play friends with her and allow her to disrespect me.
