Donald Trump has stumbled on the path to victory– say anything crazy because a significant number of Americans are in an anti-government frame of mind. They are frightened, they are scared, they are convinced their death awaits any moment if a Syrian man, woman or child enters the nation. Donald has mastered the politics of FEAR.
There is no doubt no politician can match his rhetoric of fear and hate. Unfortunately, there is a strong audience for this type of talk.
His latest outburst is about demanding a return to waterboarding. “Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass! I would. I would approve more than that. If it doesn’t work, they deserve it.”
The issue is no longer Donald Trump. The issue is the large number of people who are so scared they will even accept a dictatorship if it meant peace and calm. Such is America in 2015.
I was among the millions in New York City on the day of 9/11. I was among the millions who witnessed the horror of that day. For some strange reason, I simply do not recall the Trump version of those days. I admit to being age 85 and somewhat senile, but I simply have no recollection of his recall of events.
“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey where thousands and thousands of people were cheering. It did happen. I saw it. I saw people cheering on the other side of New Jersey where you have Arab populations.”
There is no doubt this happened in the mind of Donald Trump.

I recently was engaged in a conversation with Ben Carson as to the health ingredients of bagels and was enthralled by his perceptive comments.
1. Have you noticed how many people who do not eat bagels get sick?
2. I highly recommend Gefilte Fish for health reasons. Look at how many Jews live so long.
3. If I had a choice between prayers and open heart surgery, no doubt it is on my knees.
4. People ask if I am Negro or a colored person, I am Ben Carson.
5. I see no reason to call them “gays” perverts is more like the truth.
6. The only nude position is with your spouse in bed.
7. Perhaps if Hispanics would become slaves for a hundred years they could then claim the right to live in America.

I asked a group of Republican candidates to offer their solutions on handling the ISIS threat:
Marco Rubio –I want a comprehensive program unlike the Obama partial program.
Ted Cruz– Bomb the shit out of these infidels.
Jeb Bush –give me a moment while I check with George. He knows all about such stuff.
Carly Fiorina –Stand Tough. Stand Tall. Stand American. That’s the way to defeat ISIS. Anyone who can fire thousands of employees has the guts to take on ISIS.
Rand Paul –Do nothing, let all the Arabs fight among themselves.
John Kasich–I handled problems as governor of Ohio and I assure one and all I can handle ISIS.
Lindsay Graham –Send in the troops, let’s get some boots on the ground!
