An Honest Appeal to All the Troubled Voters out There

For all those voters, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents who fear a Trump Presidency, I would like to appeal to you to write in Bernie Sanders for President.  Why you say, because I believe there is a very real chance Trump can win against Hillary Clinton.  Not only are the forces of ignorance and greed, which strongly support the Republican ticket, so pervasive in modern America, but there is a strong backlash within the Democratic party against their own candidate.

Here is my reasoning.  One, the election of Barrack Obama in 2008 has angered many “White Male” Democrats and set them against the party.  Not because he has actually been that bad of a President, but because in their mind he has been.  They will never come out and say the real truth behind their dislike of him, “Black Man“, but will rationalize it with sound bites from Fox News, which they have turned to in their moral dilemma.  They are still angry at the Democratic party for placing a “Black Man” in charge of the country and, by proxy, them.  So they will vote for Trump no matter how much truth you put before them.  They are angry at the system and country that put a “Black Man” in office and they will spitefully place Trump in office to teach us a lesson, while they will rationalize this as the right thing to do.  I know because this describes my father to a tee.

Second, in addition to this mentality, there is another reason that comes into these and other Democrats heads.  They look at Barrack’s presidency as a grand experiment in placing a non-traditional, read that as “Older White Man“, in office and they view the result as a failure.  They don’t take into account that no President could have made a shining Utopia out of the shit hole we created.  These are the short term thinkers who expect the problems we made over decades to be fixed in a year.  Thinkers easily satisfied with band-aid fix after band-aid fix.  They were willing to take a chance on a non-traditional President to change things; however, there was no Utopia so they soured on the experiment idea.  They are ready to go back to tradition and will turn from Hillary Clinton because she is considered another Democratic experiment, no matter her pedigree.

Third, the truth is that Clinton is not really any better for America.  She is just as tied into the Big Financial institutions as a Republican candidate and will fear doing what is necessary to curb the un-American and quasi-legal activities that are destroying this country and the world.  The banks will run her economic policy like all the past Presidents back to when Thomas/Andrew Mellon and Andrew Carnegie secretly made banking policies.  If you do not understand the influence of these men on our economic present, then read the history of before and after the Federal Reserve Bank.  Also, as evidenced by the hooha around the activities of the DNC Chairperson, Clinton comes off as just part and parcel of the corrupt political system we already have.

To conclude, please, please, please if you are mad at the Democratic party for any of the above reasons, don’t vote for Trump in spite or vengeance.  Don’t decide to not vote at all.  Write in Bernie Sanders and vote for him.  Let’s surprise the hell out of the world and do the right thing.

Honest Slogans for this Years Presidential Race

Here are the slogans I feel best describe the truth of the presidential race in my country:


Trump and Clinton

One Liner that Sums Up American Capitalism

Here is a sentence I thought would be a great opener for a story that expresses what I have come to believe about America and American Capitalism.


“What do you mean America hardly exports anything these days?  We are by far the leader in exporting misery per pound of cheap crap purchased.”

Yea, people are using their second amendment remedies!

Dateline Dallas Texas, some people were upset at the police force and decided to use their second amendment remedy for the situation.  Thank you Sharon Angle!

A Taste of Things to Come

It has been some time since I shared a sample of my writing, but a touch of joy over the first two paragraphs of a rewrite for an old story felt like reason enough.  The story is titled “Above these, Love” and I hope to add it to the short story collection.

“Above these, Love” by Robert Garbin

The sun broke through straggling cloud cover to shine upon the cold desolate remains of the once beautiful kingdom of Elb.  Its torn and burnt fields now rimed under a thin layer of bitter snow.  Golden sunlight reflected from the ice covered stones of shattered gates and crumpled parapets of the King’s castle, like the thousands of tears wept by the Gods at the loss of this noble land.  Winds blew cutting snow through empty streets littered with its fallen citizens.

As evening approached, clouds from the west smothered the starveling sun until all was again shrouded in grey sorrow.  Throughout the city not a living soul stirred.  No cat meowed or dog barked.  The howl of the piercing wind was the only sound.  With the night snow began to fall, covering the brutality beneath pristine white beauty and transforming wrack into gentle mounds.
