Morning in Trump’s America

Charles Ray's Ramblings

Given his campaign rhetoric, his post-election tweets, and some of his cabinet nominations and staff choices, I have a feeling that America after inauguration 2017 will no longer be the welcoming place it has been for decades. The phrase at the base of the Statue of Liberty, written by poet, Emma Lazarus, ‘Give my your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door,’ will no longer hold true – at least not for the next four years.As I’m wont to do when my thoughts are troubled, I take pencil and pen to paper and try to express them in a few simple lines–not words, but art. The airport signs in immigration might change, and, the words of Emma Lazarus corrupted entirely.

  1. Maybe I see things completely different, I see a new direction for America and the world, even american people must admit that ever since the Vietnam days, America changed drastically. Personally we are welcoming the rise of a Trump like politician here in Australia, the Australian people have had enough of both major parties and their deceit and lies, and their selling our country out to the UN and NWO.
    No disrespect to anyone, just this readers thoughts.

    1. Different is one way to look at the situation. However that means the total destruction of the safety net for many Americans, loss of civil rights for most minorities, and the realization that under trumpocolypse only the rich and wealthy will benefit. Violence from hate groups is rising since hate attacks are sanctioned by trump.
      His administration will be a complete disaster for all people of color. I will also lose what fee veterans benefits I currently have and for disabled citizens like my brother Stephen who will not get the programs and services he needs under a Trump administration. So the coronation of the tyrant on January 20th equal doomsday.

      1. Best wishes to you for a great New Year dancing palmtrees, may it be full of beautiful joyous happiness and great Health.
        Have faith my Friend, I think in the end you may find that Trump will have more respect for his Service Personnel than Obama ever did.

      2. I will never accept Dhrump as President. History will treat President Obama kindly. Obama was not perfect but he was and is definitely more qualified and one of our better Presidents.
