Obama Trumps Donald, The Royal Wedding Gives Thumbs Up To The Institution Of Marriage – Add The Reported Death Of Osama bin Laden

Donald Trump (l) President Obama (r)

Along with all that is happening on the world scene minute to minute  two occurrences stood out for BU last week. There was the Royal Wedding and the challenge by Donald Trump to President Obama to produce his birth certificate to prove he is a bona fide American. The fact that both matters have hogged the media space confirm surely we live in times where news is greatly influenced by its celebrity nature, that is fluff over substance. News reports suggest 12,000 media workers were assigned to cover the royal wedding. Most of the USA Cable Networks gave the Donald Trump Obama birth certificate Obama story top billing this past week.

The UK Telegraph reported that the royal wedding will cost the UK economy the unconscionable sum of £5billion. Bear in mind the UK economy is still in the throes of a severe economic depression. The large expense possibly speaks volumes to the importance the English still regard he monarchy. What else could it be?

After the pomp and ceremony was done at Westminster Abbey on Friday, April 29, what resonated for the BU household was the compulsion to reflect on the institution of marriage between a man and a woman. It is a traditional institution which has seen its diminution in a world where cultural relativism has taken deep root. Perhaps the lesser role now played by the Church in modern day society and the bastardization of the institution of marriage has been a natural consequence. If there is one positive BU hopes prevails out of the royal wedding would be to reinforce the importance the institution of marriage plays in building strong family units.

To the other event:

As if Sarah Palin was not enough the US political system has conspired to suggest that US celebrity Donald Trump would be a worthy Republican presidential candidate, thus giving the possibility that he could potentially become president of the USA. A strategy the publicity seeking Donald attempted last week was to resurrect the birth issue which has dogged President Barack Obama since assuming the presidency. Surprisingly there is still a healthy number of Americans who do not believe that Obama is an American and therefore eligible to take up residence on Pennsylvania Avenue.

What was distasteful about what Donald Trump did was to insinuate that Obama benefited from affirmative action to gain entry to Ivy League Harvard. Bear in mind Obama graduated magna cum laude from what is regarded as the most prestigious law school in the USA and he was named editor of the Harvard Law Review, the institution’s highest student honour. The fact that the US media would give currency to this bout of stupidity by Trump speaks volumes to how minorities are regarded by the White elite in the USA. How the hell did Obama become president any way? No doubt Trump is hoping to piggyback on the rising sentiment fuelled by the Boston Tea Party et al coat tail.

Some in the USA have pulled the race card regarding how Trump has treated with Obama issues in his early foray to be the Republican nominee for president. BU believes though he has demonstrated a level of stupidity, which causes one to seriously question how he was able to accumulate the significant wealth he is reported to have.  Obama was able to have the last laugh at the Donald last night at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The logic as to why why Donald got the airplay he did.  The logic as to why the British government would outlay such a significant sum at a time when people are being sent home. Both explain the illogic of many things currently wrong with the world we live in today.

  • Interesting that allegedly Alquida ops are saying OBL was killed, BUT supposedly there has been serious fraction for sometime and so OBL is NOT critical anymore. These people are NOT stupid so OBL ‘s demise should have been planned for at least 10yrs ago by minimal standards of planning logic.

    To my conspirator believers, it seems that some think that OBL was NOT killed BUT has undergone major plastic surgery and has replaced Barry Obama. LOL!

    Many Americans have lost faith in BO, BUT this is because they seriously thought he would have the POWER to implement CHANGE. The Pres is basically a figure head and has to answer to the real powerful elite, JFK (wgoremongering risk that he was) did NOT obey and paid the price! BO is not going to make that mistake, it is enough to be concerned about racist Southerners.

  • Hi AC,

    The ‘mastermind’ is not dead. The money man and figurehead and ‘CEO’ is dead. The ‘mastermind’ Zawahri, is very much alive, apparently.

    @BAF, some of us do not believe everything we are told, but there are specific circumstances that require action, which we would agree with.

    That is all.

    @Moneybrain,

    No, people have lost faith in Obama because instead of rationally thinking that he would attempt and work on change during his term, as much as he could while battling the retardant forces, including the right-wing media, political powerplay in Washington etc and knowing that it would not be easy (which he said bluntly), they irrationally expected him to be the modern day equivalent of Merlin, expecting him to make baked turkey from roadkill, in no time.

    When he came into Presidency, the economy, domestic policy and international policy were all in a state of shambles.

    Such takes much effort and time to remedy, sadly the US ‘fatfood mentality also expected ‘fastfood’ politics, which is impossible, let alone unreasonable.

    So, coupled with a right-wing media, we now have a state where people are not satisfied, because they still think that the US is the world’s most powerful economy and can afford to remedy issues at the pull of a switch.

    Whatever……

    Maybe Trump will be best for them, especially when he starts to turn to aides, generals, Fed Chariman and says….

    Gibran Kahlil Gibran tells us in one of his stories about two people meeting in a mental institution. After conversing for some minutes’ one asked the other:
    Why are you in here?
    The man replied: “It is like this; my mother wanted me to be an engineer like her brother, my father wanted me to be a Doctor, my auntie wanted me to be a lawyer and my uncle wanted me to be a politician so I came here where I can be myself.
    Then the one asked the other why are you in here?
    The other said: Oh no! I do not belong in here…I am a visitor.
    And the the man commented: ‘So you are from the madhouse outside these walls.’
    (The story is not retold verbatim but it is to the nearest account)

    The moral of the story is that it is: all the r*ssole people on the outside that are responsible for the people in the asylum…there are in there to be protected from the lunatics on the outside. In fact, there’s a theory in physicians circle that the ‘incarcerated’ are not the ‘mad’ per se but usually someone in the immediate environment of the ‘victim’.

    . Well brother! on the important issue of Osama bin Ladin’s death; I made my point clear here: FrankTalk | May 4, 2011 at 9:30 AM and as far as I am concerned that is my firm unalterable belief and there’s no point in getting in to any other debate with others who holds opposing views. I Will add this however: Any system or government that is established on fraudulence and aggression has to be maintain by fraudulence aggression until such time that it is brought to its knees by its own sickness…that is, when its people reach the point where they are sickened by ‘their’ own sickness and yearn for change.

    The system/government in question that I am talking about, (USA) almost reached that stage two years ago when the world breathed a sigh of relief as the young and reasonable hearts of that nation voted for a ‘Candidate’ who spoke eloquently about ‘CHANGE’ a candidate whom they thought would give his best at remedying the ills of the nation.

    A revolution took place in the United States of America…a revolution like none other that had previously occurred on the planet. Americans, causation (white) Americans put a ‘black’ man in the white house…hoping that he would blacken it up, at least, a little to bring to the nation ‘Some of that ‘Good ole-time spirit and inspiration that help the broken and down-trodden people (Slave people) to pick themselves up and march-onward to the present. They wanted it…wanted it badly to exorcise the daemons of slavery-guilt that were haunting and turning their American dream into a nightmare

    What happened is plain to see. Time and space would not permit me to continue much further.

    Hardly a glance or a gesture was cast at the appalling disparity that crippled and is still crippling many, many African American.

    If you don’t know how to take care of your own house how can you seek to take care of other’s?
    And by that statement I am not singling-out African American house but I am referring to the general ‘American’ house.

    James Baldwin – the African American novelist and essays says – (and he should know) (without disrespect to him) ‘…Any compromise a man makes to a system that he does not believe in, that man loses some his masculinity’. The boy in the white house seem to be “DRIVING FOR MISS DAISEY” Do you know the film, where a black chauffer sits in the front at the wheel taking instructions from the white lady in the back? That was in the days when black people in the USA were referred to as ‘Boy’

    Alas it was clear from the inception, when he re-appointed Clinton’s old team that it was going to be Government ‘anew’ but not new.

    I feel sorry for the good-hearted and young people of the United States of America – unless another miracle happens between now and the next two years – I say the people of the United States of America; for the rest of the world who depended on USA for leadership are seeing now that there no reliable leadership to depend on there.

    BAFBFP there’s a maxim that says better to remain silent and assumed to be stupid than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt. I am looking to you to hold my back.
