Republican Colin Powell DESTROYS Donald Trump – Realtime Politics

The Watch Dog: response: Now they don’t want to hear these trues. Thank you FSofS Collin Powell. Folk just don’t get it. Actually like I have been telling everyone, I strongly feel Trump is talking about shutting down Black folk.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who endorsed President Barack Obama twice and came out in favor of the Iran nuclear deal days before the Congressional vote, says that he is still a Republican. Powell said, “I want to continue to be a Republican because it annoys them.”

Powell said, “In Virginia, you don’t have to declare a party … but I’m still a Republican because I believe in a strong defense, because I believe in the entrepreneurial spirit that is so typical of the Republican Party in the past. But I’m having difficulty with the party now.”

Powell also criticized the anti-immigrant rhetoric that is currently so popular in the GOP, calling himself “a child of immigrant parents” and America “an immigrant nation.” (Realtime Politics)

General Colin Powell: The Republican Party is Headed for a Brick Wall

The Republican party is in trouble, that’s no secret. It continually marginalizes minority populations and has thoroughly ostracized itself with women voters. Republican General Colin Powell sat down with Bill Maher to discuss the current status of the Republican party.

According to Powell, the GOP has to do more to appeal to minorities and learn to accept compromise, as the founders they so often exalt and call upon did.

Colin Powell decries ‘nonsense’ attacks on Obama – Source: Yahoo News

WASHINGTON – Retired Gen. Colin Powell, a moderate Republican who endorsed Barack Obama in 2008, says the president’s critics should be going after him on policy, not "nonsense." (Read more)

Note: They just don’t get it. But the real problem is they will not support the POTUS simply because he is a black man so it does not matter what he does.

President Obama is doing what the world knows by taking on so many issues because everyone knows the black man has to do double what others do. He is trying to save America but it will be hard trying to clean up while constantly having to fight the good ole boys in-house daily.

But the sad thing is we have Safe Negroes who don’t have a clue about how much it means that the POTUS in the now is the best thing that could have happened. He is trying his best to get along with both parties but again those good ole racist Republicans do not want to support him because that would mean what? Go figure!! But if you don’t know ask somebody. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

 

Truer Words Were Never Spoken by Colin Power

Truer Words Were Never Spoken

The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve.
Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity.
An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with
negative thinking and negative acting people.

As you grow, your associates will change.
Some of your friends will not want you to go on.
They will want you to stay where they are.
Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl.
Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream.
Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you.

Consider this:

Never receive counsel from unproductive people.
Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the
solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to
tell you how.

Not everyone has a right to speak into your life.
You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with
the wrong person.
Don’t follow anyone who’s not going anywhere.
With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it.
Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life.

Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships.
If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl.
But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great
heights.

"A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the
kind of friends he chooses."
The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you
closely associate – for the good and the bad.

Note: Be not mistaken.

This is applicable to family as well as friends.
Yes…do love, appreciate and be thankful for your family, for they will
always be your family no matter what.
Just know that they are human first and though they are family to you, they
may be a friend to someone else and will fit somewhere in the criteria
above.

"In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our Friends."
"Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them."
"If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit
in little matters.
Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude."….
