Bravo and a standing ovation to Khizr Khan who reminded the world that his Muslim son Army Captain Humayun Khan died from a suicide bombing 12 years ago protecting all of us. You can see the video of him speaking on http://www.CNN.com.
Khizr Khan said that The Arlington Cemetery this full of people from all walks of life and all religions.
The people that fought our wars to protect all of us were from all walks of life.
That’s what America is made of-all people, not some of the people.
What does Trump think this place was built on anyway rich pompous, arrogant white guys who hate all races who wear power suits and bad hair pieces? I think not.
Trump, as far as I’m concerned, comes from the same classification is the Klu Klux Klan did which is backwards thinking and hatred.
I hated racism since the sixties when I was a kid and was wondering why black people had to be segregated and couldn’t drink out of white people’s drinking fountains. I hated that stuff and I’m so happy that we finally have a more sophisticated society, that is at least better than it used to be.
America is not perfect but no country is. Our country is a human entity that has shortcomings, just as the people who comprise it.
It sure as heck is better than what it was in the sixties though!

In the sixties it was controversial to show a woman on TV and it was doubly controversial to show black woman ( a double minority) in a commercial.
In the sixties it was controversial to show two different races with two different colors hugging or kissing each other, that was just not done.
Then again they couldn’t show Barbara Eden’s navel on the sitcom “I Dream of Jeannie” either. Times change and so do people and their ideals.
Gene Roddenberry of Star Trek Fame, broke stereotypes by casting the first black female starring roll with Ohura as one of the Starship Enterprise’s star crew.
That was the landmark history making stuff for its time. And even though he didn’t realize what he was doing, he made people realize that all races and do all things. Racism was beginning to go out the window little by little.
In 2016 , we will propel into a more just and promising future with a President like Hillary Clinton. For the first time in United States history, we will have a woman President, which in the days of George Washington, was considered an impossibility. With Hillary Clinton will also have for the first time equal pay for equal people. That doesn’t mean equal pay for equal with women only, but equal pay for everyone for the same job. Now there are a few things that I don’t care about what Hillary Clinton did, but then again no candidate is perfect.
I’m going to say that again- no political candidate is perfect. That’s because nobody is perfect. The moment that you expect that you’re going to find a perfect candidate, you’re not going to find anyone because if they don’t exist.
Equal pay for fulfilling the prerequisites of the job should have brought equal pay since the dawn of civilization. How women put up it or tolerated a substandard wage ,don’t ask me.
All people should be compensated in an appropriate fashion, no matter what sex they are or what race they are.
To me that’s is fact and should be made right immediately, no matter who is president.
How could we have ever gone into 2016 with that without that ever been put into place?
Equal pay for doing the same job is a civil rights issue. It’s not a woman issue or a gay issue or a Muslim issue it’s just equal rights for everybody.
Trump’s thoughts are all based on hatred and that’s what prejudice is, and the roots of all biases. Anyone that doesn’t want everybody to be treated with dignity and respect no matter what race color creed they are needs their head examined.
I think all of that puffy hair Trump has plastered with tons of hair spray weighs down his feeble brain.

America is composed of immigrants from countries all over the world- trumpet the supporters of Trump have forgotten that. Take a look at his record and take a look at how much money he’s making and how many lies he’s made. Prove what he said don’t just assume what he saying is correct. Look at it look at the figures yourself read The Wall Street Journal.
Filipino to Italian immigrants to Cambodian immigrants to French immigrants, Polish immigrants, German immigrants, Chinese immigrants, to Japanese immigrants and the list goes on to include every country in the free world.
My relatives where Italian, French, French-Canadian and Blackfoot Indian.
What nationalities are in Donald Trump’s genealogy? I think he would be shocked to know, then he would eat his ignorant blind sighted words.
Progress is what we need in this world. The only way that we can become a more tolerant society as well as more loving people is to work together. You can’t create cohesion or Unity with a huge, ugly wall. People that animals that you put up of barrier to.
There’s no way that you can unite people with walls. I hope the wall is not built it would go against everything that we’ve done as a society we would regret that decision and regress as people.
I also implore you if you’re an American citizen or an American Living in America don’t ruin America by voting for Trump who stands for regression, segregation and the opposite of unity in equality. I think in my own personal opinion that Hillary Clinton is the best person for the job if the president of the United States of America. I’ve never read anything like this on this site before but it matters to me greatly how our world is handled. It needs to be handled with tender loving care and protected and cherished as well as all the people who inhabit it.
Vote for anybody else you want and don’t vote at all but please don’t vote for Trump. I’ve never felt so strongly about not having someone fill the presidency until this year’s election.
