This is the new information from Jason in case you haven’t received it.
In today’s Los Angeles Times, an article by Kurtis Lee reports that “Donald Trump brushed aside concerns Sunday about a recruitment video released by an Al Qaeda affiliate in Africa that showed the GOP presidential front-runner’s call to close U.S. borders to Muslims.The video argues that the United States is an enemy of Islam and that Muslims should join the Shabab’s fight. On Sunday, Trump said he was not bothered that the video used his image. ‘They use other people, too,’ Trump said on CBS’ Face The Nation. ‘What am I going to do? I have to say what I have to say, and you know what I have to say? There’s a problem. We have to find out was is a problem. And we have to solve that problem.'”
Really, Donny, you don’t have to look far beyond your mirror to find the problem. Yes, you are a bully, and revel in that role, but you are, also, to me that little Donny who is still screaming, “Look at me! Look at me! Mommy! Daddy! Look at me!” The main problem is that you are exposing my country, the United States of America, to danger by your childish, boorish, prattling demands.Hey, Mommy. Hey,Daddy. Time for a little discipline here and a few lessons on how to honor fellow human beings and our country.
This Thanksgiving, I want to express my gratitude for my country, the United States of America, a land of immigrants. We are descendants of those who came to these shores from somewhere else in the world. I am thankful for the Statue of Liberty, a gift from France,that proudly stands in our New York harbor, greeting migrants with the welcoming words:
“Give me your tired, your poor. Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, these. the homeless, the tempest-tossed, to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
Lest we forget, my prayer is that we shall always be blessed by blessing others.
Happy Thanksgiving, fellow pilgrims!
