After leaving Paul, lovely Fiona meets disaster and physical harm in an abusive relationship.

Black Lives Matter White Lives Don’t ?
You all know I am from Mars and look at Mother Earth from a distance and therefore have an objective point of view.
I speak for my panel when I say that we are pretty disgusted by what we see happening on Mother Earth’s America. Many of you have changed so much into one-sided bias and liberal political correctness that your once a great nation is now ducking the truth, one-sided loud-mouthing, and choosing bad liberal leadership for all the wrong reasons. No wonder that there is a widespread yearning for an a-political revival.
The murder-in-cold-blood of Kathryn Steinle is the latest case in point. You all remember your hype on TV about Ferguson, New York and Baltimore racial bloodshed. In Ferguson and New York grand juries agreed that the black mob accusations were unfounded.
The case of the six Baltimore’s policemen is still ongoing with at the head black representatives of the Baltimore municipality.
They look rather “All American”, no? But both the black mayor and the black state attorney have made aggressive statements against them while everything is still “alleged”. And in the eyes of TV and other media, and the mob crowd, they are guilty already. Interestingly, the prosecutor’s allegation that the dead black victim carried a “legal knife” (ever heard of such a nonsensical term?) was “untrue” (PC-bias does not allow us to say “a lie”), as it proved an “illegal” type.
See any difference? Both are mortal. Why would someone innocent walk around with that? Everything on the forensic evidence is being smothered under the carpet for fear the police might not be proven guilty once more. And all you liberals at the slightest break-in or accident call 911 first thing. You hypocrites.
In Ferguson, the US attorney Holder sent the whole FBI to figure out what happened in the hope they could find evidence to declare the white policeman guilty. The President spoke in favor of the black fellow who attacked the white policeman.
The usual “defenders of racial integration,” Al Sharpton (cousin of El Chapo?) and Eric Holder were all making speeches putting oil on the fire to please their black base and anti-cop crowd.
The same thing happened in New York. There also a grand jury declared the police not guilty. Of course, the mob declares all grand juries wrong and “pro white.” And now, blacks are saying white supremacy is still reigning in America and that they are the victims of a racist society and need reparation from the tax payers.
Well, truth be told, Mars Man has colored relatives on Earth as he is multicultural, but all his goodwill is destroyed by those racial outbursts, loud-mouthing mob rule, destruction of property, indiscriminate looting, and burning of buildings. How long has this never ending mob mentality been going on, since the sixties/seventies? The Al Sharptons, Holders and Obamas don’t make nothing better. You would have expected a much different atmosphere with all those hopey-dopey-changey priests from 2008 onwards, but no. AND WHEN WAS THE LAST WHITE UPRISING? The only thing you hear about them is having a Whine Riot in New York.
And when beautiful Kathryn is murdered by a “Hispanic” illegal alien (remember the Travon Martin case, your half-white-half-black President saying he could have been his son?! and the media classifying Zimmerman as a “white-Hispanic” killing a black fellow, hoping that that would make him “guilty?”) NOBODY IN THE CURRENT BLACK ADMINISTRATION TURNS UP TO CONSOLE THE STEINLE FAMILY. THE PRESIDENT STAYS MUTE. THE CHAIR OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HOME SECURITY DOES NOT EVEN KNOW HOW TO SPELL/PRONOUNCE HER NAME AND DOES NOT EVEN KNOW IF SOMEONE IN THIS ADMINISTRATION HAD, SHOULD OR WOULD SPEAK IN SUPPORT OF THE POOR WOMAN AND THE AWFULLY HURTING FAMILY! THEY DON’T HURT ANYTHING LESS THAN THE FAMILIES OF MICHAEL BROWN, ERIC GARNER OR FREDDIE GRAY. AND SHE WAS JUST WALKING WITH HER DAD, NOT SHOPLIFTING, SELLING DRUGS OR RIOTING!
Then the Charleston S. Carolina massacre hits and we are back to white killing black. The only thing the President can talk about is gun control. Families in America should have a better grip on their kids, be responsible and alert on growing aberrations! Mind-sick people identified should be kept under better surveillance. But no, the battle flag of the South versus the Union must be taken down. The battle flag was perceived to favor slavery. In history, it was the flag of the Confederate soldiers, defending their grounds against the Union. Not to forget, many white people attended the murdered black church people. You see that rarely the other way around.
OBVIOUSLY YOUR BLACK LIVES MATTER. But your white lives do, too. Your current administration and its racist cohorts (and I speak of Sharpton, Holder and Obama who are their leaders. I am glad to hear some of my black friends say they don’t like Sharpton either!) have made a political issue of race and made everything racist, sinking all the gains so far made. IN CHICAGO, BLACK KILLS BLACK EVERYDAY AND NO SHARPTON OR OBAMA SAYS ANYTHING ABOUT THAT. Enough is enough.
Good heavens, you all need some hell of a fresh air in the USA. A total reversal of the current destructive liberal trend. AND IF YOU CHOOSE ANOTHER LIBERAL LEADER – JUST BECAUSE AMERICA IS “READY” FOR THAT “WOMAN PRESIDENT” (SINCE WHEN IS JUST BEING A WOMAN GOOD ENOUGH TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE USA? WHAT HAS SHE ACHIEVED AS COMPARED TO A CARLY FIORINA? ZILCH!) A WOMAN WHO HAPPENS TO BE A STAUNCH LIBERAL AND A CONGENITAL LIER (COMPULSORY, RATHER, GIVEN HER E-MAIL AND BENGHAZI SCANDALS – A NOTCH-UP FROM WILLIAM SAFIRE’S DEFINITION IN THE NEW YORK TIMES) YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU GET: MORE DEBT, MORE BIAS, MORE LYING, MORE DISRUPTION, MORE RIOTS, MORE ILLEGAL ALIENS, SANCTUARY CITIES DISREGARDING FEDERAL LAW, ILLEGALS RAPE, MURDER AND DUI, MORE DIVISIVENESS, SOCIALISM, UNEMPLOYMENT, MISERY AND TOTAL BANKRUPTCY. BYE-BYE USA.
And that’s my opinion and I am not a fool.

A heartwarming love story from child years up! Not worried by politics, upheavals or racial hatred.
THE LADY AND THE TRUMP
Hi Everyone: This was written in July 2015!
Is it not wonderful that everyone wants the Lady and the Bulldog now? Six years back every one fell for the hope and change-sweet smiling unknown pied piper. An untested senator who had mostly voted not present and sat in a pew listening to–but not hearing–a race baiter. The Senator even pushed that contagious congenital (William Safire of the NY Times in 1996), compulsory lying lady aside. Whatever happened to the Obamagirls? They must have gone hiding under the table. And now, they put that woman back on the table with her fornicating hubby in the background! With 17 opposing politicians-contenders crying “us and them.”
Remember when two dogs fight over a bone, the third runs away with it?
It happened before with that insufferable parrot (pronunciation ‘Perot’) and his crayon boards. We would never have heard of Hillary or even Monica had he just stayed quiet running his business. And now they want to claim that she, still lying off the cliff, is IT? What IQ do they rate us for? Can we endure still more lying than we had for the last six years? How stupid do they think we are?
Well, yes, to be fair, we are quite stupid. In 2012, we re-elected the current politician who should never have been re-elected. Only because the so-called smart electorate stayed home, mad that their candidate was a Mormon. And what did they get for their nonchalance? Four more years of tyranny and stalemate, stagnation and lies. Would we finally not want some good tyranny to throw all these bummers out? Get The Lady and the Trump to clean ship?
PLEASE LET US HAVE REAL HOPE AND HAPPY DAYS AGAIN!
Pundits and politicians, radio and TV commentators, whether socialists or conservatives, feed on each other. The Lady and the Trump are not in their. The Lady and the Trump are not in their camp. They slip through their fingers. They don’t quack, the pundits do. For pundits and politicians, getting something done is unproductive, because when it’s done you can’t quack about it anymore. And that’s the end of the TV or radio show. They can’t make money that way. They lose their platform. Don’t you see them poor slimy squatters squirm that the Trump is only a ten billion dollar windbag and the Lady a fired CEO? They say would you please let us talk politics instead of having non-politicians taking action? Executive power, you say? Sure, but only the left is allowed to do that. If the right does it, it’s racist, extremist or right-wing conspiracy. Good! Let’s have it the other way around for a change.
Black and White always fighting. All over the world. Even dogs do it. During the last six years it has only gotten worse in the US. And what does ‘H’ stand for other than for Hyena? Do you want a howling Hyena in the White House rather than a bulldog getting things done for America and us for a change?
What about us poor voters and hard workers, that is, those who still have a job? Is it not about time we get some relief from those slimy politicians, especially those who lead us to greater misery with their misguided philosophies that have been proven wrong time after time?
Us Poor Voters!
Well, 20 months later, us poor voters finally came out of the woodworks and SPOKE!

ENCHANTING THE SWAN : Grad students and musicians Paul and Fiona fall in love when they perform The Swan and agree to marry but paternal evil blocks their love.
THE CASE FOR TRUTH TALKING
Yes, that’s Kathryn and Me! We like people who call a spade a spade. We like people who are not politically correct. Oh, no! We are not impolite or calling people names, the opposite what liberals do! We just do not want to be hypocrites and we don’t like people who are. Politicians in Europe and the USA have become so overly cautious, afraid as they are of standing on someone’s toes, that they are not standing for anything but platitudes.
Hyppocrit no hear no see no speak
That’s why we are flooded by loud-brawling terrorists who have nothing to loose. Them bullies know they can scare us because we have no guts to call them what they are. Them illegals, we let them come in-after they survive the ordeal of rape, torture, and disease on the way- because they work in agriculture, clean our streets, gardens or homes, babysit and whatever, and when they feel “at home” the bad and uneducated illiterates begin to subvert our nations in gangs and do drugs. But all these brave politicians, whether left or right, are so scared to say anything about that because the so called objective journalists will expose them as racists, maniacs, extremists, whatever they call you, and the politicians bow because they want to be elected. They say because a few are bad not all are bad. Well, those few can be very bad. What about that illegal who killed that beautiful girl in daylight in California today? Five times deported? How can anyone defend these liberal let-it-be policies and “sanctuary cities”? And that is not the first time that happens. Trump had it right. Rubio is the slicker: he wants it both ways–playing it nice to pander to the Latinos to get their votes. That’s exactly the problem with our politicians: pandering to the left.
The liberal media
OK with all this, if the politicians did something right after they are elected, but they don’t. They only make it worse: vide Mr. Obama and his crowd. Even old Jimmy Carter says it. What amazes us most is that they are born Americans (although in the case of Mr. Obama that is still a debated question). What has happened to this country? In 1996, Judge Bork wrote “Slouching towards Gomorrah.”
Sodom and Gomorrah
Liberalism in the USA began its onslaught on the traditionally held American values from the 1960s. In Europe it was not anything less. Some countries were even ahead of the USA because of their socialist governments and policies.
Since then in the USA the Supreme Court has been rendering increasingly liberal verdicts. Even judges appointed by Republican Presidents fell into the trap of liberal media bashing, and voted liberal. So we got abortion all the way to the dilution of the true meaning of marriage. And all that in less than half a century. Same sex loving and living is a choice, we never had an issue with that, as some people are born with that choice. It is good that at least western society does no longer consider that “sin,” although other societies still do and punish it hard. That’s wrong, but it should not be called “marriage.” Marriage is a sacrilege, a term with a sacred meaning for a man and a woman in procreation, the basis of our human relationship, the basis of the human race on earth, the basis of our Christian religions, whether Catholic or Protestant.
Call it “Union” or “Partnership” with the same legal conditions and protection ; that would have been good enough. We don’t call a woman a man or a man a woman. Why then must same sex living be called “marriage?” But the US Court bowed to the liberal media and groups that want to have “equality” for a tiny minority with a thousands of years concept of a union between a man and a woman. Same sex does not procreate, and if God forbid they want a child, one of the female partners must bike to the sperm bank, or a male partner to an orphanage. Marriage is now delinked from procreation and has been diluted to an ordinary partnership. Shame. It is all part of the increasing decline of western civilization, including that of the USA.
And the dumb electorate listens to the liberal media (euphemistically called “mainstream.”) So, all scared Republican candidates in the USA say Trump is wrong and must shut up. In Holland Geert Wilders must shut up. In France Marie le Pen or in Germany Bernard Lucke must shut up. “We on the left” are the only ones who know best what’s good for you and if you dare to contradict us we’ll massacre you. And “we liberals” will do whatever we can–character assassination, outright lies, destroying businesses, killing cops, burning cars and buildings etcetera–to prove we are right. In concept this is not much different from what the Islamic radicals say and do. And the liberal media never reports it objectively, always defends it. One or two sane Newspapers or TV-Channels that report it for what it is are “paid by the extreme right” that wants to take over the nations and put everybody in jail. In the liberal US, “Mr. Soros” is right but “the Koch brothers” are wrong.
In Europe, the same dichotomy exists as in the USA. Greece is a prime example of liberalism gone too far. If Greece says “no,” leftist groups in other “members” of the PIGS (Portugal, Italy, Spain) may want the same: when chaos reigns take the reins.
Unemployment in the USA is much higher than the “official” number: at least 10 percent, if not higher, versus the official number of 5.6. This official number is calculated over the workers actually looking for work. But many have left the work force. Why? Because they can’t find work in a weak economy. The Obama stimulus policies, Europe’s high taxes and socialist regulations, have slowed down economic activity and are keeping it from moving up, despite the inventive minds and the hardworking hands of the private sector. Manufacturing has gone to China, at low cost and with their currency manipulation to keep exports cheap.
Can America get out of this rut? If the majority voters want it, yes. With non-political leaders like Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina we might just get it “right.” Maybe Scott Walker, if he can get national traction. Big if. In Germany, Angela Merkel may pull it off. Regretfully, many voters just want more government money, “suck the rich,” because they are too lazy to work hard, and choose soft, easily bending politicians such as Obama, Carter, and Hillary Clinton with the result of further decline. They see no further than their immediate dollar. They don’t care about their country or the world until it’s too late. And that’s what Alexander de Tocqueville said when he saw the American wonder of democracy.
What we need in the West is leaders that stand for 1) a strong foreign policy that defends us from the dangerous and disabling intruders and puts us “back on the map” so that others will not be encouraged to bully us in the US or in Europe (China, Russia, Iran, and renegades like ISIS); and that prevents criminals from crossing our borders to subvert us from within; 2) good economic stimulus: reduce encumbering regulations, lower and streamline taxes, encourage energy production and efficiency, increase local manufacturing and small enterprise. That will automatically increase employment and more tax dollars for the Government; 3) living within our means and taking down the national debt. You have heard all this before: it is straight from economics 101 and has been done successfully before (e.g. Reagan, Thatcher) but why do liberals/socialists, whose economies have always failed, refuse to listen? Because big government and enslaving the workforce keeps them in power. They want your money and live well on it themselves.
If that is what the voters want: we will go as Alexander de Tocqueville predicted about our democracy: down the drain. Bye-bye USA or Europe (that has gone quite far down already) as we knew it. Thanks to Obama and Obama voters, Hollande voters, and their likes.
