Filipino Donald Trump

Rodrigo Duterte was elected President of the Philippines and if anyone wants to know what would happen in America if Donald Trump became our president just check out this dude. Rodrigo is out to get drug dealers, and when he says, “get” he means something permanent. Since his election over 500 people who the police claim were drug dealers have been shot to death. There are warrants out for judges, for lawyers, for police, all charged with some drug related crime.

Senator Leila Lima claims the campaign against drug dealers “seems to be executions carried out by law enforcers and other elements like vigilantes. They murder with impunity.” Donald Trump insists he wants to restore Law and Order. The issue is who decides the law, and what is the process  of establishing ORDER.

Red Headed Trump Helps Black Folks

Black Americans can now feel safe because there is a new red headed sheriff in town whose only goal is ensuring that black folks get a good job, live in safety, and learn to vote for him. His message is clear:

1. The African Barack Obama stole the election from John McCain. You know,the loser who got captured in Vietnam.

2. The Great Recession began when Obama became president. Before he took office, every black person in this nation had a good high paying job, and lived in safe neighborhoods. Today, not a single African American can leave their home for fear of getting shot.

3.Under the Obama administration, over 90% of African Americans live in poverty and can not get through the day without Food Stamps. I am going to change things for the better. How? I can not reveal my plan because Crooked Hillary Clinton would steal it!

4. I love black folks, I love the black maids we hire at Trump hotels,and we pay them the incredible salary of $7.25 an hour! We also have thousands, thousands of black dudes working as porters, handling the garbage, and  being bus boys!

So, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?

Elect me and your child is guaranteed a job at any Trump hotel as a maid or porter! I love you ALL.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 86 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump wants to reach out to blacks, I guess next to ISIS.

Donald, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower refused to lower the 90% top tax rate on the wealthy during the 1950s, now, he WAS a Lincoln Republican!

I await a story from Trump headquarters which proves that Donald was a Green Beret in Vietnam and won the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Do you get the feeling the GREAT WALL will no longer be discussed by Trump?

I have asked my children that under no conditions are they to say two words to me–Ryan Lochte. Who the hell cares what happened at t he service station?

Frankly, I  was not impressed by behavior of Brazilian fans who did too much booing of opponents. Cheering is OK, not booing in the Olympics.

I have sort of a hunch that American performance at the Olympics proves that we STILL are a GREAT NATION.

I still adhere to my promise to myself in 1950 never to get drunk. I believe there are some guys who wished they made the same promise.

Trump Wants To Be Lincoln Republican!

Donald Trump has embraced the cause of African Americans, he is now a fervent supporter of Hispanics, and urges all to return to  the ideals and values of Lincoln Republicans. Yes, Donald has embraced Abraham Lincoln. Of course, it is doubtful if Trump has the faintest idea who or what Lincoln was or what were his values and goals. So, Donald, here is a primer on Abraham Lincoln.

1. Lincoln pushed through the Homestead Act which gave away 160 acres of free land to any American who wanted to homestead. In other words, Lincoln gave handouts to deadbeats.

2. The Lincoln government financed construction of the Intercontinental railroad. In other words, the GOVERNMENT built things and helped create jobs, NOT private enterprise.

3. Lincoln pushed through the first income tax. Years later, Republican President Theodore Roosevelt pushed for the Constitutional amendment to create the current income tax.

4. President Lincoln used power of the armed forces to crush white people who wanted to keep blacks in slavery.

5. Abraham Lincoln vigorously opposed the “Know Nothing Party” which wanted laws banning entry of Catholics, and restricting the rights of Catholics. Sort of like Donald’s ban on Muslims?

6.Obviously Lincoln believed in a strong FEDERAL government, and wanted restrictions on State governments.

In other words, Donald, your beliefs are the exact opposite of those of Abraham Lincoln.

Christian Terrorist Kills!

Once again Christian terrorists struck the innocent in America. Christian terrorist Derrick Ryan Dearman murdered five people in Alabama, but was caught in Mississippi. For some reason, American newspapers and TV commentators always mention the word,ISLAMIC, or MUSLIM when a person who is of the Muslim religion kills people. People like Bill Maher insist there is something “wrong” with the Muslim religion because some Muslims engage in acts of terrorism. Over and over again Maher must make the comment about “something is wrong with the Muslim religion”

Each year in America over 30,000 people die because of guns, the overwhelming majority are members of the CHRISTIAN religion. Twenty  years ago in Rwanda, Christians murdered 800,000 fellow Christians. In Christian nations of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania it is illegal for gays and lesbians to be who they are. In fact, in these Christian nations, albino children are murdered for their BODY PARTS! YES, this is done by  CHRISTIANS! Is there something wrong with Christianity?

Bombs Away In Turkey

The government of President Recep Erdogan is committed to the goal of ending democracy in Turkey. The so-called ‘coup’ attempt by soldiers has been crushed. Of course,no  one knows if this ‘coup’ was organized by President Erdogan as part of a plan to destroy opposition parties. He used this “coup’ as the means of arresting over 50,000 people,including members of the military, judges, lawyers,teachers,professors,deans of colleges,journalists and he made certain to close any and all opposition journals.  These steps were taken in order to “save democracy” from evil opponents of the president.

At the same time as seeking to end democracy, President Erdogan has stepped up his campaign to destroy the rights of Kurds in Turkey. He prefers to fight Kurdish soldiers who oppose Syrian President Assad even though Erdogan wants to end the regime of Assad. Yesterday, a 13 year old boy walked into a marriage ceremony of Kurds and blew himself up. Most probably by ISIS. In one word, Turkey has become a MESS!

What About Exports?

I listen carefully to the speeches of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Both are furious at the loss of “millions of high paying jobs to China.” Their assumption is the reason for decline of certain factory jobs is because business is taking their production to Asia, particularly, the evil China. Just think, we now produce clothes, shoes, assembly of computers and other such “high paying jobs” elsewhere but in America. For some reason, neither Sanders nor Trump ever mention the word, EXPORT.

In June this year, the United States EXPORTED $183 billion in goods to other nations. We IMPORTED, $227 billion from other countries. To simplify, if we ended import of goods from overseas, we might add about 4,000,000 jobs. Of course, since other nations would raise tariffs on our  goods, we might lose 3,000,000 jobs.

Shouting and screaming to rip up  trade deals gets the applause of millions. Unfortunately, if we do as Trump and Sanders urge, there might be millions of jobs lost by Americans. And,many of them would be high paying jobs!

Driverless Cars?

There are repeated stories concerning the arrival of driverless cars. The bright future lies ahead.Just think, no more humans, no more human mistakes,no more human accidents, just safe, wonderful driving for one and all. Uber in Pittsburgh is experimenting with driverless cars although there will be one human to sort of ensure that no one makes a mistake.Of course, there are a few problems ahead:

1. No more trucks driven by humans.

2. No more UPS deliveries by humans.

3.No more restaurants on highways since robots don’t need food and drink.

4. No more gas station attendants, since we soon will have robots to handle these chores.

I assume Trump and Sanders will blame this one on our trade policies!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Just once, just once, I would so welcome Donald actually telling us HOW he will attain his ideas.

Picture of five  year old Syrian boy in chair breaks anyone’s heart.

This will be the dirtiest political race in history.

I just can  not grasp how any intelligent person would vote for Trump.

Trump supporters would be a great market for any con man.

Olympic swimmers are unbelievable, or should I say, their story is unbelievable.

I am amazed how many medals the UK  is winning, more that China!

 

What Now For Hillary?

Among the confusing aspects of this election is how poll numbers wander all over the place. Four days ago Hillary was leading by 12 points, yesterday by four points. The reality that she must confront is whether she likes it or not, a large percent of the population is simply not enthusiastic about her campaign. NO, that is not accurate,it is not what she says that bothers her, but her personality, her past behavior, and just plain old trust of her motives for running.

One must add into this mix the reality of how the media has portrayed Hillary. Any false accusation is presented as possibly true. The nonstop reputation of “Benghazi”eventually raised doubts about her despite the reality that no Secretary of State in history has ever been held responsible for an attack on an Embassy. It is about time Hillary fights back. She should continually cite the death of 241 Marines in 1983 who died in Beirut due to a terror attack. Not a single Democrat charged President Reagan with that disaster. How about Hillary shouting day after day, BEIRUT.

It would help Hillary if she actually could give speeches that had some inspiring words. Donald promises everything without mentioning how he would achieve them. Hillary describes how she actually will achieve them. But, she needs speech writers who can transform her ideas into glowing words of hope. Sorry, as of this date, that is not happening.
