Handling Black Children

I currently live in Chicago so my daily newspaper must contain at least one shooting which entails the death of some young black girl or boy. The other day a grandson of a US Congressman was at home when two friends came to visit. Somehow, they wound up arguing about  clothes and a teen girl shot his grandson to death. So, reading this story about a seven year old boy in a Baltimore charter school did not surprise me.

Timothy Korr is seven. He was in a classroom when somehow he got into an argument with a  25  year old tutor, Trayson Gray, and  this argument between a seven year old and a 25 year old escalated into violence. The child wound up with a fractured jaw and two missing teeth. The adult insists the boy hit the wall. Let me get this straight, a grown man can not handle a seven year old boy without the child getting a fractured jaw!!

General Michael Flynn

As you recall or don’t recall, Donald Trump never ceased talking about emails and classified material and the need to send Hillary Clinton to prison for violating the law. So, who does he appoint as his National Security advisor, but General Michael Flynn who was reprimanded for misuse of classified materials and fired from his position in national security. Of course, Trump has been talking with General Petraeus about a position in his administration even though he was convicted of revealing classified material to his mistress.

Anyway, General Flynn has the reputation in his former work in national security of spouting nonsense and shooting off his mouth about  people and governments. He has stated:

1. The Muslim religion is not rational.

2. Sharia law is spreading in THE UNITED STATES.

3. Iran killed more Americans than did al-Qaeda.

4. He opposes the Iran nuclear deal and has talked about bombing Iran.

5. Most of his colleagues believed that he was irrational and lacked a competent view of foreign policy.

Who else to be the National Security advisor to the president??

Trump Talks With Asian Leaders

We are able to reveal the secret conversations that Donald Trump had with leaders of Pakistan and India.

Prime Minister Sharif: “Look, I’m Donald Trump,  the new president of the United States and I wanted to let you know how much I love people from Pakistan, hell, I had some Paki doctor take care of me last year, great guy, wonderful people, love them all, all them Pakis, and I want you to know that if you are ever in town, please stop by and say, hello. Fantastic people, absolutely wonderful are  you folks from Pakistan. Loves you all. Great doctors, good with your hands, loves you all, and just remember, there are SPECIAL RATES AT ALL TRUMP HOTELS WHEN YOU ARE IN TOWN SEEING ME!

Prime Minister Modi: “Just calling to let you know I’m the president. I think Indians are fantastic people, I even think those from the US are incredible folks. I know some real smart Indians, some of them are building new Trump Towers in India, just remember, help them out with all that red tape, no need for some red tape to stand between our great relationship. Indians, smart people, know some from Silicon Valley, absolutely great, fantastic, look forward to some incredible business relations in the coming years. Give me regards to your buddies over in  Pakistan.”

Donald Wants To Bring People Together

Donald Trump told a gathering of his followers that he wants to bring Americans together again. Here is how he will do this:

1. He appointed Jeff Sessions as the new Attorney General, a man who will do NOTHING to prevent states from denying the right to  vote for Democrats.

2. His chief advisor is Steve Bannon, a man  supported by every neo-Nazi group who does not want his daughter to “go to school with Jewish girls.”

3. He has appointed  opponents of Obamacare to key positions even though a new survey by the Kaiser Foundation shows that most Americans agree with most of the ideas of Obamacare.

4. He just came out to send to jail or strip of citizenship Americans engaged in legal protests such as burning the American flag.

5. He has  yet to  appoint a single black American who is highly regarded by black Americans to any position in his Cabinet.

6.He continues frightening Hispanic children with his vow to send them back to Mexico.

Beyond that, he is bringing people together again.

Women For Trump

It is now clear that 53% of educated college women voted for Donald Trump. We explain why:

1. When he said that he wanted ‘pussy’ he simply meant he wanted to  pet your pussy cat.

2. When he said that Ivanka was a ‘good piece of ass” take that as a compliment by a father about his daughter.

3. When he said if his daughter encountered bigotry at work, she should get another job, he is telling women, that is the solution, who disagrees?

4. Let’s face it, Hillary does not dress well or look attractive.

5. Emails are more important in my life than ideas or policies. I vote from my  heart.

6. His daughters are married to nice men, I want my daughter to marry men like those.

7. To tell the truth, I never did take  science course in college, so  since I am not a scientist…

8. Now, about the emails….

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 26 year old mind trapped in an 86 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Given the kleptocracy of the Trump family, I wonder if they  will not take White House silverware.

Difficult to imagine Trump and Romney having an intelligent discussion about foreign affairs.

Donald promised he knew more than the generals, I guess that’s why he is appointing generals to position after position.

One must admit that Trump does care about immigrants, he even married one.

We should award a medal to the American who never got tweeted by the new president.

I wonder how Sanders folks who insisted ALL POLITICIANS ARE THE SAME now think?

At this moment, I have more anger and hate for those who did not vote for Clinton than the Trump family.

 

Welcome Wall Street

As you recall, those who adore Donald Trump, he promised to rid Washington D.C. o f Wall  Street billionaires and restore America to the ordinary people of this land. Ah, I so remember Donald blasting Ted Cruz because his wife had worked for Goldman Sachs. Ah, that was then, and now is now. Billionaire Steve Munchin, formerly of Goldman Sachs is now the Secretary  of the Treasury. Wilbur Ross, another billionaire is now the Secretary  of Commerce. So wonderful that Wall Street has been driven from power, and ordinary Americans now run our country.

There is nothing surprising about Trump appointments. He has spent his entire life in the company of those with gobs of money. He literally does not know any ordinary middle class people, other than the doorman at Trump Towers who opens the door and says, “Good morning, sir.” Welcome to the new regime of the wealthy, for the wealthy, and BY the wealthy!

Tweet-In-Chief Tweets

In my childhood, President Franklin Roosevelt would give “Fireside Chats’ to discuss important issues with the American people. I recall in 1943 that he asked every American to get a copy of a newspaper which would have a map of the Middle East. He then proceeded to review military campaigns in the Middle East so all Americans could understand what was occurring in the area. Ah, that was then, and in 2016, we have a new president who has his approach to discussing issues of the day.

Anderson Cooper of CNN was surprised to see a Tweet from Donald Trump that made critical comments concerning his program last night. “When I first heard that he was tweeting about something that was on the broadcast, I got to thinking. Doesn’t he have, like, a briefing book on ISIS to be reading?” For God’s sake, Anderson,which is more vital to the survival of America, your negative remark about Donald Trump or some damn bunch of Islamic terrorists? Get your priorities straight!

Eat Corn Flakes Or Else!!

Since former Breitbart head, Steve Bannon became Trump’s top advisor, folks back at Breitbart are feeling their oats these days. From their perspective, from now on, Breitbart News is the most important news source in America, and the New York Times can get out of its way. Imagine the shock when Kelloggs decided to remove ads from the Breitbart site. Did these folks at Kelloggs grasp who is now running America? The Breitbsart staff is furious that any advertiser would remove their ads without first obtaining permission.

Breitbart termed the removal as “an escalation in the war by  left wing companies against conservative customers.” It went on to charge that Kellogg  was attempting to placate “left wing totalitarians and this is a disgraceful act of cowardice.” Gee, when I was a kid eating Corn Flakes, I never imagined that each bite was an attack on conservative values. Actually, I ate Corn Flakes because Joe DiMaggio ate Corn Flakes.

Don And Mitt Meet

As you recall or don’t recall, Mitt Romney sort of expressed some rather negative comments about Donald Trump. The two former foes met for dinner, we decided to imagine how the conversation went.

D: Glad to see you, Mitt, I assume that tonight you will have crow for dinner?

M: Actually, Donald, hot dogs and beans seem appropriate, they will ensure that I shit tonight.

D: Mitt, no hard feelings. Some guys like Priebus insist that I get along with you, with Marco, and, of course the number one asshole, Ted Cruz.

M: So Donald, you will soon be the president, what is the most important issue you intend to handle?

D: Right now, I am trying to figure out how much time each day I tweet, seems like a lot of tweet time will now be taken up with meetings where folks talk about stuff like terrorists, and women and such.

M: What are you discussing about women?

D: Is it really so bad if I tell some gal that I would like to grab her pussy?  It’s just guy talk.

M: What about health care? Obamacare, what will you do about it?

D: Day  one I will veto that damn law. Day one comes the veto.

M: But,Donald,Congress first has to pass a bill to end Obamacare, the president just can’t veto laws that do not exist.

D: Are you telling me that I can’t make laws!

M: Donald, have you actually read the Constitution?

D: Too damn long. Anyway, just wanted  dinner with you to see the look on your face.

M: Love to see the look on your face two years from now!
