Sunday, December 27, 2015: Things That Should Have Been Said in 2015
1. President Obama should have admitted his mistake in recommending bombing Syria because it crossed the red line by using chemical weapons.
2. That the media should have called Gov Christie's denial in the GW Bridge scandal a lie.
3. That Donald Trump was a bigot and a liar when he announced his Republican candidacy.
4. That connecting no-fly lists to gun sales databases and banning assault weapons would not reduce mass shootings and gun violence.
5. That the second amendment to the Constitution is not justification for gun carrying by American citizens.
6. That all of the Republican candidates are unqualified to be President, because they lie, incite fear, by their statements against Muslims and immigrants are bigots, and lack important historical knowledge and wisdom.
7. That Hillary Clinton is a hawk, a bad actress, and will not rise up to denounce the root of gun violence, and condemn the racist statements and root racist beliefs of the Republican candidates; and should have spoken out in defense of women's health and personal reproductive rights against the Republican's fierce campaign against abortion.
7. That ISIS or ISIL, dangerous and murderous as they are, is distraction from the many other violent groups in Syria, Yemen, Nigeria, Phillipines, and other African and Far East countries that can stunt a campaign of violence and a move to stop it.
8. That Israel has abandoned the humanist goals of its founding and has become oppressors of their Palestinian enemies and, worse, murderers by way of individual acts of extreme Orthodox settlers, and the over-reaction by the IDF.
9. That the media and Democratic Presidential candidates, with the exception of Bernie Sanders, should have made clear through repeated newspaper investigative reports and speeches that the corporate system of powerful companies rigs economic equality and upper-mobility.
10. That way to solve murder and unjustified violence of Black men mostly is to deal with the root problems of a culture of failure down throught the generations, the segregation of Black people into ghettos and their being cut off from the culture of mainstream America, and that a special program managed by a new class of helping professionals would move to provide equity in education, housing, neighborhood organization, and health by constantly changing and successfully evaluate programs the both the government and private industry are investors.
