ON Officer Shelby

We now have seen over and over the film of Officer Shelby standing with gun drawn as she gazes toward Mr.Crutcher near his car. Her assumption is that she feared being gun downed by a man who was out of control. My background: I spent four months in Basic Training learning to fire weapons, including a pistol. I was considered a crack shot. Subsequently, I spent two years going to target practice every month for three hours.

Anyone familiar with the pistol knows that it is very  unstable. It is difficult to fire a pistol,the natural reaction is to have your hand jerk, unless you have spent countless hours practicing with firing a pistol. Actually, a trained person holds the pistol with both  hands, and focuses the body upon the object to fire at. Mr.Crutcher was standing with arms in the air, thus he was not near a pistol. Assume, Officer Shelby is correct, he reached into his car to get a weapon.

1. She never had any reason to suspect there was a pistol in the car.

2. If Mr.Crutcher did have a gun in his car, why would it be on the front seat?

3. If he DID have a gun, and swirled around to shoot her, he would have had a split second to aim the gun. Most probably,anyone who swirls around and fires the gun without taking aim, would have a hard time hitting a barn.

4.Nothing prevented Officer Shelby from dropping to her knee, holding her gun with both hands, and aiming at Mr. Crutcher

Reality, Officer Shelby was NOT confronting any threat. She may have IMAGINED a threat, but none existed. The first responsibility of police officers is to protect CIVILIANS.  It is not to protect themselves from alleged threats.

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

Perhaps, cops should be taught not to shoot straight when encountering a black male.

For some reason, the mere sight of a black male in public creates a sense of fear within cops-white or black.

Oh, to be in merry  England when Bobbies did not carry guns.

Donald King, two time murderer spoke in favor of the Trump candidacy.

It is true, the Trump children are definitely children of Donald.

Hillary has to pound away demanding specifics from Trump, of course, he has none.

So, is it difficult to become a Canadian citizen?

I assume ISIS leaders have developed a new prayer which seeks the triumph of Donald Trump.

Whatever happened to Rand Paul?

If Trump wins, Chris Christie gets to head Transportation.

I wish I could have heard the conversation between George H.W.Bush and son, Jeb.

 

The Worse Of Times?

Place Donald Trump in a black church and his mind begins to wander and out of his mouth come strange words. Yesterday, he told some black folks that for the black community,”this is the worse, the worse ever, ever” time for anyone who is an African American. So, Donald, let me take you in my time machine to a different era in America.

1. In the good old days, blacks walked in the street when encountering whites in public.

2. Blacks sat in the back of the bus.

3.Black schools in the South averaged about 30% of school expenditure that was provided white schools.

4. Black graduates of high school could NOT attend State universities.

5. Not a Single American corporation had a black executive.

6. The last lynching took place in the late 1940s.

7. Black skinned officers in the US Army could not command white troops.

8. There was one black US Senator in the 1870s, and one from Massachusetts in the 1950s. The only black Congressmen were from either Detroit, Chicago or New York.

9. No black skin person could be seen kissing  a white person in a movie or on TV.

10. Less than three percent of Negroes in the South were allowed to vote.

Yes, Donald, those were the good times, unlike today  when we have bad times!

I Do Not Understand Business!

I confess. I spent my life in the world of Education and never became involved  in the business world. I attempt to  listen carefully when people discuss the economy, relations between business and government. Donald Trump insists that his first action upon become president would be to send eleven million illegal immigrants back to Mexico. Of course, he has never spelled out the specifics as to how this  process will unfold. Trump insists that he is a Great Businessman. OK, so would Trump or his supporters please explain the following question.

Eleven million  people constitute an important group of  customers. These people purchase milk and eggs each week, they buy clothes,they buy cars, they buy cell phones and TVs, and God knows how many other items. Each time they  purchase something they also send money to state governments, and when cars are filled up with gas,they send dollars to the Federal government. If they depart, then hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost.After all, if eleven million customers disappear, just think of the thousands of truck drivers who will be fired.

Donald insists that he wants to  make America Great Again. However, his plan would send eleven million customers to Mexico which would boost their economy since they can sell them goods. It seems to me that Trump wants to make Mexico Great Again!

Donald Trump Jr. And Skittles

It becomes clearer and clearer each day there is something inherent in any and all Trump children that makes one wonder how along the way of life somehow, they missed out on the compassion feeling. I present the Trump Junior quote: “Let’s end the politically correct agenda that doesn’t put America first. If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.” Spoken like a true Trump.

!. As of this date there is NO example of a Syrian refugee in America committing a terrorist act.

2. There IS extensive investigation of any Syrian refugee prior to entering America.

3. As of this point  in time, fewer than ten thousand have arrived, most being women and children.

4. A significant percent are Syrian Christians, not Muslims.

5. What type  of human would compare people being murdered to a bowl of candy?

The most fascinating aspect of the Trumps is the complete lack of any sense of Christianity in their hearts. OH, I forgot that Ivanka was now a Jew, there is no example of any concept of Judaism in her heart.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

When was the last time the media discussed issues concerning the future of America?

I await a debate in which emails and hate are the topics of discussion.

How about deciding the election by who wins the 100 yard dash?

Still confused as to whether or not Edward Snowden is the good or bad guy.

If we want a healthy  America, just  ban emails.

Syria is simply too confusing for this human mind.

In my youth, bad guys were the ones with guns, alas, not so today.

Get Syrian Scorecard

Some days one wonders if the war in Syria has always been going on. It has now reached the point where one has absolutely  no idea who are the good or the bad guys, or who should win or who should lose. The Nusra Front used to be connected to al Qaida, but somehow along the way, it decided to change its name to the Jablat al Sham(JFS). Now, the  issue is whether or not the JFS is part of al Qaida or whether it has decided to go along a different path.

For example, the JFS recently has been working to assist the people of Aleppo, and it provides food and security for its inhabitants. So, last year many in that town hated al Qaida, but since the once bad guys are now attacking as good guys,they have decided to like the bad guys who once were their enemy. Of course, for American bombers who only a few weeks ago were bombing al-Qaida now discover their bombs are resented by most people in Aleppo.

We leave it to others to untangle this mess.

Reince Preibus is Chairperson of the Republican National Committee, and now finds himself required to ensure the election of the non-Republican, Donald Trump. Naturally, he is a bit upset, why the hell is he stuck with the task of helping this idiot from New York become our next president, and make a mess of everything. Since Jeb Bush and John Kasich, and even Ted Cruz have made clear they will not support the Trump candidacy, Reince is very  upset and has warned these guys who refuse to back the Republican candidate that they will be punished.

1. They will not be invited to Trump speeches and get to sit on the platform.

2. They will have their identity card that allows them into Republican headquarters taken away from them.

3. Donald will NOT say nice things about them.

4. If Donald gets angry, beware of what he will say about you.

5. Donald might encourage the NRA to hit on you guys, and when he says, “hit,”take your guess as to the meaning of that word!

6. When an illegal Hispanic rapes your wife, don’t expect consolation from Donald, he warned you!

Syria Forever

I suspect the average American, and the average member of Congress has absolutely no idea how or why the war in Syria began. I am certain that not a single member of Congress could offer an  intelligent explanation as to who is fighting in Syria other than the Syrian government or the Russians. Of course, Donald Trump has a PLAN, it is a secret plan that he will not reveal to US military leaders because they would steal his idea and attempt to boast about their intelligence.

Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry worked out a cease fire with Russian diplomats that has just taken effect. On day one of the cease fie, UN trucks wanted to bring food and other supplies to civilians in Aleppo. At this moment, the Syrian government controls one half of the city while rebels control the rest. So,the UN thought it would be wonderful to provide all  people in Aleppo a few decent meals and medical aid.

Ivanka Wants Nice Questions

Ivanka Trump is the child who dad has indicated he would love to date, but, alas, she is his daughter. But, Ivanka just loves her dad. She was asked to be interviewed by Cosmopolitan magazine. Since Ivanka is a Trump she assumes that when people interview her, at least, they provide her with the questions prior to the session.The interviewer, Prachi Gupta, asked a question as to what her dad said in 2014 about women,noting this illness was a strain for employers. After all, if every woman working in a company became pregnant and demanded a vacation to raise her child, how the hell can a business operate?

Well, Ivanka felt insulted by the question. “I think you have a lot of negatively in your questions. I don’t know how useful it is to spend so much time with you. I have to run.”

Ivanka does have a  point. Why be given questions that you  never gave your approval to be asked?

For example: “What is  your favorite story about your wonderful father?”
