John McCain's last hurrah, the worlds going to hell


The world is changing, tweets from the white house remain breaking news. While everyday people live-stream their lives on social media trying to go viral in a narcissist world and make news of themselves.


Politics is no longer about helping the America people but about the two major political parties at war with each other and not caring what happens to the common man.

I long for the days of John F. Kennedy and although a Democrat was respected by all Americans at a time when most believed in Kennedy's
most famous quote from his inauguration speech, "Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”


This past week on social media a  female teenager  live streamed while driving drunk  and crashed her car and kept filming as her sister laid dying. (The world's going to hell)

  The other incident in Florida, a man drowning in a lake was mocked by teenagers as he screamed for help as they teased, laughed and posted the event to Facebook. There is no law against not helping a fellow man in distress. You would think moral laws would kick in when you see someone drowning? Better to get a viral video than save a life is the thinking of many? (How sad)

What  really got my goat and believe it should get to anyone with a conscious whom
has some sort of empathy for those whom may have been diagnosed with brain cancer are the  words of hate directed towards Senator John McCain.

Here is a sampling of what the American public had to say about Senator McCain, a war hero, one time GOP presidential nominee and maverick.
The war hero has cancer
and this is what some
Democrats circulate.
This is a disgrace.

People want world peace,
it will never happen!
Just look at our own 
political system
at war.

I find the comments below a disgrace to even be published about an American patriot. It doesn't matter if  your a Republican or Democrat. John McCain is an American hero and the below comments are  a small sampling of what America has become. I am ashamed.

(Below quotes copy and pasted from Facebook)
"I felt bad for this man when he found out about his cancer.... now I hope it flourishes into something that will spread like a weed!!! Bye Felicia!!!"

"I've never said this about a human before but I hope that cancer kills that POS Traitor quickly and painfully."

"There will be assassinations and rioting in the streets. These Sicko Republicans underestimate the violence of the American people when they get screwed, period. McCain will be dead soon, so he doesn't really care. He is all full of bluster, always was."

"I have always supported John McCain. I am now done with him. He could have stopped this circus and not lost face and he went anyway.
hope he feels every minute of pain from his illness! Just like every child and elderly person he just hurt.  He has great health care while others suffer."

"Just lost my faith and respect.... I guess he had more than cancer in the head. Unfortunately, surgeons can't fix that."

"This prick is possibly knocking on deaths door and then pulls this shit decision!! I'm still in shock!! When they removed that clot they must have removed the part of his brain that feels compassion and caring."

The final vote to replace Obamacare went like this;
When Senator John McCain of Arizona returned to D.C. with a fresh scar from his brain surgery, it was primarily seen as a measurable effort to help Republicans overturn Obamacare.

The Republican senator offered a brief explanation of his vote 
"I thought it was the right thing to do. He actually voted against his own political party and voted with his heart for what he felt was best for the American people, not just what was best for the Republican party. He also shocked all those commenters on social media whom need to now eat their words, John McCain is the true meaning of mensch and maverick!

McCain left his intentions secret until the end, then cast his vote in a dramatic fashion, walking to the middle of the floor, holding his arm out and then giving a thumbs-down.
God bless Senator McCain
an American Hero and Patriot!

Senator John McCain, an American patriot in these days of partisan politics are few and far between.
McCain has the same kind of  brain
cancer that Biden's son Beau died
of in 2015. Biden called McCain
before the crucial vote, the call
was said to be emotional  besides
an obvious lobby call. 


I hate to repeat myself, but I must," ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.” -John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961

MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA and Senator John McCain!

"OJ vs. "The Donald,"The White House Live..." James "Kimo" Rosen' (Kimo's world-snarky edition-#198)

James "Kimo" Rosen is a retired professional photographer
 and amongst other things lived in a tent outdoors for 7 years.
Rosen currently resides on the tropical island of Kaua'i
with his best friend and spiritual adviser Ivanka-Obama Da Dog!

Ivanka is her first name and Obama is her last name
she is  a bipartisan dog!

Publishers note, 
A snarky look at the next presidential race...
Warning!  Beware this blog has some tongue-n-cheek humor,
 please enjoy, smile and LOL! ;-)

July 27,2017 edition of the Garden Island news;

OJ vs. "The Donald,"The White House Live


America's most popular reality show
is no longer the 'Celebrity Apprentice' starring Donald J. Trump. It still stars Donald Trump, however it is a new show I like to call, "The White house live, starring Donald Trump friends and family!"  This show can be seen on every major network and even on many cable networks--even on the Internet if you subscribe to certain feeds.
First daughter Ivanka on the left
and first lady Melania on right


I believe the White house live should be up for many awards this coming season. Best reality show, best non politician to play a president,  the most beautiful model to ever play a first lady, along with the prettiest Jewish girl to ever play a first daughter, and at times fill in for president. OY!

The awards show will be in October when Juice (OJ Simpson) is released from prison. Juice will host the awards ceremony. Mr. Simpson when asked about hosting the ceremony,  said he cannot wait to announce he will be running on the Democratic ticket against "The Donald" in the next presidential election. Juice emphasized his dream has always been to take a stab at running for president, after-all he has taken a stab at many other things in his career and been successful.

He asked our staff  here at dakinetalk blog to keep it under lock and key until after  the award show airs.

When Hillary Clinton was asked for comment she could be heard saying behind her breath, "Juice!, Juice!, Juice!." Her nurses then gave her OJ (Orange Juice) through baby bottles to calm her nerves.

Well, so much for keeping it under wraps? OK folks, you thought the 2016 election was the election of the century, just wait for 2020--- its bound to be a real kitty grabber...  ;-)

OJ Vs. "The Donald," maybe the greatest presidential election ever? Time will tell.
How OJ Simpson paved the way for Donald Trump

Thank you Donald Trump or should I say WTF Potus

Many bloggers are writing about the death of the blog, saying that Facebook, Tumbler, Twitter and some many other forms of social media have  drawn the interests of their readers and the blog is dying and on it's way out. Blogs have basically seen their better day is the word amongst the blogging community.

 Dakinetalk blogs about Trump now average around 600 views a day.  Other blogs do not do quite as well.


I need to say a big Mahalo Nui Loa to president Trump for the numbers increase when using  his name  in my blogs at a time when blogging in general is on the decline.


On the other hand I need to say a big ''WTF' to Potus for making my social life as miserable as it's ever been. Since being an Independent and not hating Trump many of my liberal friends have unfriended me or quit talking to me--or
 when they do talk to me, roll their eyes, thus prompting me to limit communications with them.They think I can't see their eyes rolling or brains rattling.

Some people I have known will even go out of their way to pretend they don't see me when we cross each others path and are 12 inches away from each other in the supermarket.

To many I have become a cancer since I have not  publicly denounced Trump as the anti-Christ-Nazi that they all want publicly lynched and beheaded similar to what comedian Kathy Griffin recently acted out.

This past week has not been easy with the latest smoking gun aimed at Donald Trump Jr. when he met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign, thus igniting another media frenzy.


It seems like every month the main (Fake News) stream media creates more smoking guns and fake news that eventually fade into the sunset. They just continue to harasser our President.

"Back in May Trump was accused of shutting down the FBI's investigation into possible collusion in that same month of May, New York Magazine asserted this: "Comey's Memo Is the Smoking Gun of Donald Trump's Watergate." (Every scandal needs a "gate.")But hold on! In April, Slate claimed that any Trump campaign involvement in hacked Hillary Clinton emails would be "an impeachment-level smoking gun."Bill O'Reilly
https://www.billoreilly.com/b/Donald-Trump-That-Wascally-Wabbit/8721395376097246.html
You get the point.

None the less,just like the post office motto,"Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor gloom of night" (Nor chronic pained spine) the blog must go on.  


To all the eye rollers and those whom have unfriended me and future un-frienders,(sic) let me quote my mother, may she rest in peace.  "There are 3 sides to every story, Yours, mine and the truth."                       God bless you mom!




P.S.
FAKE NEWS: Media Falsely Claims Polish First Lady Snubbed Trump Handshake


This is not satire, the far left are going hysterical because  President Trump compliments 

French first lady  Brigitte Macron, 'You're in Such Good Shape "Oh my G-d, lock him up! That's the problem with the politically correct left, compliments are misunderstood as sexual harassment.  The President was trying to be nice, let it go.                                                          The photos the main stream media doesn't show, click below link; http://www.foxnews.com/politics/slideshow/2017/07/13/first-lady-melania-trumps-day-in-paris.html#/slide/first-lady-melania-trump-visits-the-necker-hospital-for-children-in-paris--france--july-13

Glenn Mickens deserves better



I am appalled at the letter to the letter in the Garden Island news  July 5, 2017 for numerous reasons.

"No one is listening"
http://thegardenisland.com/news/opinion/mailbag/letters-for-wednesday-july/article_a0632d05-b201-5dc6-ad91-5be445c664c0.html
A one sentence letter  from Ka’aona Kipuka to Mr. Glenn Mickens telling him  in the public forum--(enclosed is his letter in full) "Yet again another letter of absolute nothingness from our favorite “Watchdog” Mr. Mickens. Shhhhh! No one cares."
Glenn Mickens locally known
as the County watchdog and nitpicker.
Names he has become accustomed to
and does not mind being called.



Not true, I care and  know many  others on the Cosmic Garden island that care.

 First, Mr.Kipuka obviously cares! He proves beyond a reasonable doubt basic psychology 101, "That only the guilty speak." Similar to the teacher asking , "who threw that spitball?" The first kid that raises his hand and say's , I didn't do it, did it! Busted Ka’aona.

Most important, Mr. Mickens is Kupuna and deserves and has earned respect. 
Glenn  and I disagree on issues and can  debate in a gentlemanly way. Glenn is one the few that can disagree without name calling in a humane and gentlemanly manner, that is a lost art.

How many of you have a Wikipedia page? Mr. Mickens does, look it up!
How many of you played professional baseball or knew Jackie Robinson? Mr. Mickens had the honor!
I do not agree with Glenn on all political issues, I agree with Glenn that Kauai
The Ohio Air National Guard
200th Redhorse completes the
elevated switchback spur section, a
most intricate and complex portion
of the pedestrian trail.  I am pro trail
and Mr. Mickens  is anti trail.
We have debated this subject over the years
without name calling  or putting
the other guy down.


county should try a county manager style of government. We disagree on the current President, while many are unfriending each other, Glenn  and I can disagree and still be friends. We also disagree  on the pedestrian trail, however, we both respect each others opinions and have debated without name calling or putting the other guy down.


Mr. Mickens may be a nitpicker and watchdog, (names he enjoys by the way and is proud to be called) but without people like Mr. Mickens giving testimony at county council meetings and every other kind of open forum from traffic to new developments, things would be even worse than they are now. Mr. Mickens makes our politicians think and keeps them on their toes.  Mahalo Nui Loa Glenn.

I understand The Garden Island news wanting to give everyone a voice, however this was not a letter, this was one sentence of hate to an upstanding gentleman, caring citizen and KUPUNA of the Garden Island (Mr. Mickens) that deserves respect, whether you agree with him or not!
Glenn Mickens likes to talk story about
the 'good ole' days of baseball...

Photo courtesy and used by permission
of the Garden Island news
 

 I know Glenn has developed thick skin over the years as have I, however, still that letter was uncalled for in so many ways...Why publish  hateful illiterate  rants against Kupuna in the community from a person whom doesn't even exist on Google or Facebook?

Mr. Mickens will be 87 years old on July 26th and I would like to publicly wish Mr. Mickens a big  "Hau`oli Lā Hānau" -Happy Birthday, in hopes this gets published before his birth-date and let him know Many people including myself  do care and although we all don't agree, we love you as part of the Aloha Ohana and community of the Garden Island.
Your pal, 
James "Kimo" Rosen

There is a correction to be noted in the newspaper version of this blog,
Mr. Mickens' Birthday is July 26th, not July 30th as noted.  ;-)
