Haters keep hating despite lack of affect

Melania Trump is the most beautiful First Lady we have had in years. An elegant, well dressed woman with excellent manners and decorum. Whether or not she is in the White House, Melania IS a lady. There are, unfortunately, immature persons who do not like the fact that Donald Trump is our new president. These immature types are taking their bitter defeat out on anyone, even those who had nothing to do with the election. Recently, per an article from, The Daily Mail, Italian designer, Gabbana, of famed design duo Dulce and Gabbana wrote on Instagram about his delight in seeing, Melania dressed in one of his fabulous gowns. See full article HERE. He was immediately attacked by the intolerant left for his joy because the subject of his delight did not meet with their childish need to control everyone around them. Their philosophy is, ‘if we don’t like them neither should you!’. What does that sound like to you? To me, it sounds like school yard bullies. For all the anti-bully campaigning going on across social media, there sure seems to be an awful lot of bullying going on toward, Donald Trump, his family and anyone else who dares to express their joy and delight over his winning the election, and really any subsequent support of him.

Blessed are the peace makers.

Melania looks amazing in her D&G sheath dress and, Mr. Gabbana is justified in being excited to see his work on such a beautiful and glamorous woman.

Elegance and wealth

I am not wealthy. I have been studying wealth, and wealthy people, for many years now, but I do not count myself as one of, ‘them’. As an avid people watcher, studying wealth-and people’s attitudes toward money has been immensely entertaining. Especially during the election.

In my studies, I have learned that different cultures dress, and behave, different from one another in regards to their wealth and how they identify with other persons in their economic circles. The old adage, ‘birds of a feather flock together’ really does hold true… especially when it comes to money.

According to, Ginie Sayles’ book; How to Meet the Rich for Business, Friendship, or Romance, there are 6 types of classes of Rich people and each has it’s own dress code, home decor code, and standards/types of etiquette. There are the; Old Money Pedigrees, Flamboyant Old Money, Status New Rich, Practical New Rich, Celebrity Rich, and Roller-Coaster Rich.

I believe, our new President and his family are Old-ish Money Pedigree with, Melania being grafted in through marriage (Old-ish because his family’s wealth was not built over centuries as is say, the wealth of royalty such as the family wealth of Prince William, but Trump was raised with Old Money mentality which has been passed on to his children, and now his grandchildren). Melania is Status New Rich through her marriage to Trump, but she is displaying many of the characteristics of Old Money Pedigree or (OMP). I would love to know how she transformed herself from model to elegant wife of a Billionaire to soon-to-be first Lady. She truly is someone one who has made a deliberate effort to change her stars.

Although, Melania has not fully embraced the entire OMP way of life, preferring pastels to primary colors, she is more OMP than not OMP. Meaning, OMP persons are subtle about money. Well, as subtle as one can be when one is a Billionaire. OMP persons do not go out of their way to draw attention to themselves. They do not dress flashy. They dress well. Dressing well doesn’t mean your labels are showing. For an OMP, dressing well means spending a bit more, or much more if necessary, for quality clothing that lasts. OMP’s do not follow fashion trends as some people do who change their look as often as the weather changes. OMP’s buy well made, and if needed- tailored, clothing. They are always clean and well groomed. OMP’s do not draw attention to themselves by speaking in a loud tone (deliberately or otherwise), or by dressing flashy, or by using $50.00 words, or by name dropping, or bragging about their wealth (not even would they humble brag).

I believe President-elect Trump, his wife Melania and all the rest of the Trump clan are going to be good for America in so many ways but especially in showing Americans what it truly means to be wealthy and not just play at having money. They will show America what is true compassion and management of wealth? It is not spending a half billion of tax payers’ money on vacations for oneself and one’s family.  I find it interesting that the same people who never complained about the extravagant vacations taken by the Obama’s on our dime are demanding that, Trump pay for his own security which is a valid entitlement/expense for the President.

Instead of continuing to lose their minds about what is done; the election is over, Trump won, get used to it, it is time to be quiet, stop making assumptions based in fear and just observe.

I, for one, am excited that people get to observe a different kind of wealth than obnoxious celebrity wealth. To me, it’s as if the whole nation gets to  have front row seats at the biggest, this-is-how-it’s-done, etiquette/comportment class in history. Observe and learn, people… observe and learn.

 

 

WE WON!! 10 things Trump can teach us if we let him

I am over the moon ecstatic that Trump won the presidential election. I’ve been reading about this amazing American family for several years now and I’ve fallen in love with their down to earth (YES!) point of view, commitment to each other and their extend family and their focus on traditional American values among other things. Here are some thoughts on what I believe president Elect Trump can teach Those who need these lessons,… if they let him and stop pouting.

  1. How to be a grown up. Too many liberal college students need a ‘safe place’ to go because they are easily offended by words. When I was a kid, we had a mantra that could benefit these extra tender hearts; ‘sticks and stones may break my bones but names shall never hurt me!’. Just chant that when you feel words are too sharp for you to handle and you could end up more mature and thick skinned. Yes, Trump has said some things in the past that his opponents happily dredged up during the election, however, how many of us do NOT have word skeletons in their closet? How many of us have NEVER said anything offensive? Not me. I repent daily of my words. I pray everyday to do better.
  2. It’s ok to be white.
  3. It’s ok to be rich.
  4. It’s REALLY ok to be white and rich.
  5. Trump wants as many people who want to be to BE rich no matter what their color is. He does not believe cultural poverty benefits anyone so stop trying to hold back your friends, family members or neighbors who wan tot improve their lot in life.
  6. Trump believes in helping other people get what they want…AS LONG AS THEY ARE WILLING TO DO THE WORK. Welfare programs bankrupt a nation. People who are entrepreneurs contribute to their local, and in turn, our national community. Trump is about a hand up, not a hand out.
  7. How to truly protect our nation from dangerous invaders. Hint: we certainly do not give them incentives to move here- AT ALL, but more importantly, we do not incentivize illegal citizenship with greater perks than what our vets, and elderly receive to maintain the cost of living.
  8.   It’s ok for America to be a superpower unfettered by the ILLEGAL UN watch dogs. Being a part of the UN goes against our constitution and I’m praying that Trump breaks us free from this terrible organization.
  9. Money doesn’t always corrupt. For a nation with many pastors teaching about prosperity, many people still have phobias about money. Donald Trump has managed to raise well rounded, down to earth, conscientious, and responsible children. Even while being a business mogul.
  10. Trump will teach us how to dream like Americas again; to dream big and to go for those dreams. No one on the left thought he would win. Did they think making promises about social programs and taxing the rich to pay for these programs would seduce votes for their candidate? Most Americans do not want to be taken care of by big government and we certainly do not want anything from our government that will cost us our freedom. America has been flooded by immigrants coming from countries that do not think the way that we do and so how could these immigrants possibly understand what the American dream really means? Many of them come here expecting handouts and some even become violent when they do not get what they were told they could have. I don’t know who is lying to them but here is the truth about the American Dream; you can have whatever you are willing to work hard to obtain. The American Dream is not about being handed to you what the government social programs think you are worth. It is about building the life you want and in the process, building up your community as well as those around you.

Donald Trump is a grown man. He is a capitalist. He is direct and he does not mess around with coddling people who are easily offended. You must be a grown up too if you are to be able to even dare to be on the same playing field as he. I think this is what scares so many people. We’ve had too many words and not enough action from past presidents. At least, not healthy action that was good for our nation.

Trump is going to be great for America. It might hurt some folks at first. They’re going to have to grow up and be more responsible. Even babies must learn to walk even when they fall down and get hurt they are victorious because they did it! If you’ve been afraid of Trump winning the election, it’s time for you to grow up and learn how to stand on your own. Stop being spoon fed by mainstream media. Read a book written by Trump. Read a book about historical American politics that has not been written by an angry liberal who hates America. Read something written by someone who loves America.

I believe that Trump can bring unity to America but we all must be willing to think of others as more important than ourselves (if you are a Christian you should knwo this is biblical!). We must be willing to work with each other and not against each other.

Before you write a comment, think about it. Too many people wrongly think that being ‘authentic’ means being an ass. We see in the bible that whatever we feel we need to say must be said with love. We can be angry but we cannot use our anger as a justification to sin.

Healing our nation begins now. It begins with, Donald Trump. It begins with me, and it begins with you.

Donald Trump can teach America, and Americans, how to be great again IF we let him. You can either sell out to hate & fight against what has happened and contribute to the division in America, or you can buy into the mindset that America has a few adjustments that need to be made in order to get our nation back on track. The choice is yours. It is, after all, a free nation.
