No Gunfight At OK Corral

Police sergeant John Poulos  has been engaged in two rather interesting gun fights over the past two years. This Chicago cop claimed he saw 19 year old Kajuan Ray point a  gun at him twice during  a foot chase in West Englewood.When police arrived at the scene of this ‘shoot-out’ they discovered that Sgt. Poulos had a gun, but could not find the alleged gun of the victim.

Two years ago, Sgt. Poulos shot to death Rickey Rozelle in Chicago after he alleged the victim threatened to kill him and “turned toward me with a shiny metallic object in or near his hand.” Police arrived at the scene of this deadly  gun-fight only to discover A gun, the one that belonged to Sgt. Poulos.

I wonder how Sgt. Poulos  would handle a gun-fight in which both were armed with guns?

On Freedom Of Speech

The American political system depends upon the President displaying a commitment to our Constitution which is based upon the principle of freedom of speech. The Supreme Court has specified that each American has freedom of speech unless their words directly lead to harm to others. The famous doctrine that one can not shout “fire” in a crowded theater since these words could result in panic and death is a fundamental principle of our democracy.

President elect Donald Trump presented his view on freedom of speech. “Nobody  should be allowed to burn the American flag, if they do there must be consequences–perhaps loss of citizenship or a year in jail.” Has this idiot ever read the American Constitution? One can only lose citizenship if one commits treason. We soon will have a president who lacks any understanding of the right of free speech!

Colin Kaepernick Stands For ?

Colin Kaepernick has become the poster boy of millions for his ‘heroic’ stand, or should one say, kneel, during playing of the Star Spangled Banner. Collin wants to make a statement. By refusing to stand, somehow, this act of heroism will result in ?? Mr. Kaepernick will earn over eight million dollars this  year so we can assume the act of defiance will not impact his daily life. He also very proudly informed Americans that he did not vote this year in order to –allow Donald Trump to gain power?

Colin has expressed pride in the performance of Fidel Castro because the Cuban leader provided excellent education and free medical care for people. Of course, at the same time, Castro sent to prison gays, lesbians, dissidents, and many were tortured. Exactly, what is a ‘great education system’ in which there is  no freedom of speech? By the way, Colin, Adolf Hitler provided jobs for people in Germany, so, by the logic of Colin, Adolf Hitler was……….?

Rumors Are Flying

The advent of Donald Trump as president-elect has ushered in a series of rumors  that might or might not be true. We offer some samples.

1.It is rumored that Donald Trump, in his desire to return free enterprise to America, will auction off the White House.

2. It is rumored that Melania Trump is being given speech  lessons on how to speak with an American accent.

3. It is rumored a new play room will be established in the White House to provide the new president with an area in which he can  play with mud and throw it against the wall when he gets upset.

4.It is rumored that Rudy  Giuliani will conduct a sit-down strike until Trump makes him Secretary of State.

5. There are unconfirmed rumors that Donald Trump is investigating the possibility of selling the United States to China, on the condition, Trump Enterprises gets a finder’s fee for arranging the sale.

6. It is still unclear as to whether Ivanka has her own bedroom in the White House or does she share one with dad.

7. There is no truth to the  rumor that Trump will substitute the Nazi flag for the Star Spangled Banner.

8. However, Steve Bannon IS fighting for the change!

Rudy: Our New Secretary of State?

It becomes increasingly clear that Donald Trump is debating whether or not to offer the Secretary of State position to Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani. Mitt ranks at the top of the hating list of Trump supporters, and Rudy is a man who has  spent years making money, giving speeches to businessmen in foreign nations, and making millions from those in power within dictatorial regimes. He has done extensive consulting for business interests in Qatar, a nation whose business leaders were among the financial backers of the Palestinian Liberation Organization as well as Osama bin Laden.

In 2006, for example, Rudy was given over $10,000,000 by American and foreign business leaders for speeches that had something to do with –at this point, I really do not know– I guess something to do with building prisons or just  having the honor of hearing Rudy yell and scream how he, alone, saved New York City on 9/11.

Republican Senator Rand Paul has already  promised to oppose the Giuliani nomination. There are 48 Democrats who will oppose Rudy. If two more Senators say, NO,then Rudy will never become Secretary of State.

Talks With Trumpians

In an endeavor to discover what is really happening within the newly elected Trump administration, I decided to chat with Trump supporters.

M: So, tell me Kellyanne, what about this story regarding Mitt Romney as Secretary of State?

K: Well, Fred, as you know, Mister Trump is America’s leading intellectual leaders. It is not within my realm of expertise to disagree, to dispute any and all decisions he makes. But, Mitt makes me, and other Trump supporters, just ill.

M: Ok, that explains things. What about this recount stuff, and the emails from Mister Trump indicating he is upset.

K: Well, Fred, as you know, Mr. Trump won in a  landslide. It is among the greatest victories in the history of American politics, a real landslide.

M: But, except for the winning margins of George Bush–5 and 35, every other election since 1980, witnessed a victory margin of over one hundred. Why do you call it a landslide?

K: Because it was. When Mr. Trump says he won by a landslide, it is true. Of course, the victory margin in popular votes would have been greater for him, but illegal immigrants and hundreds of thousands came over the Canadian border to vote for Hillary Clinton. If you doubt my statement, just read the Trump emails.

M: I bow to the Trump logic, if he says it was a landslide, who are we to doubt the words of a great American? Tell me,is it true that Mr. Trump plays in the sandbox when he gets angry?

K: Yes, but it is a Great Sandbox, the biggest Sandbox in human history. He so loves to throw dirt at the figures of Romney and Bush and Marco and Hillary, you have to understand he is under great pressure and needs some  physical outlet for his energy.

Donald Is SHOCKED

As Americans know, during the  past election campaign, unlike his angry Democrat opponent, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump conducted a campaign based upon respect for the Constitution and rejected her refusal to agree that if she lost, there would not be a challenge to his victory. This is a fact. How many times did Hillary shout “the election is rigged!” Well, the expected happened, Jill Stein, and the Clinton campaign are asking for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania!

Donald  Trump is absolutely shocked. ‘This is horrifying. This is not the way our democracy works. Been around 240 years. We’ve have free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcome however when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be accepted by everyone. I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our major parties would not accept it.”

Thank God there was ONE candidate who constantly promised to accept the outcome!

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

So, Clinton ‘won’ by two million and ‘lost.’ Only in America!

Trump qualifications for serving in Cabinet, know NOTHING.

A ‘doctor’ will head housing and our infrastructure even though he only knows the infrastructure of a human BODY.

I so await a year from now when NO new jobs come back from China.

I assume Sanders supporters must feel happy, their worse nightmare came true!

So, does Ivanka become our new Chief of the Joint Staffs, she does know what a Joint is?

I guess Vladimir Putin smiles knowing he ELECTED the new American president!

 

The White Myth

There are dozens of groups which supported Donald Trump which boast that  he is restoring power to those of the white race. They believe people of darker skins seek to take over power and end the dominance of those who are ‘white.’ The construct of a ‘white race’ simply does not exist anymore than the construct of a ‘blue eyed race.’ In the nineteenth century, the newly arrived Irish were regarded as people who were ‘black’ and not like the Anglo Saxon Protestants who then dominated America. Italians who began arriving late in the nineteenth and then in the twentieth century were told by fellow Catholics, the Irish, they were “dark skinned people’ and not like NOW, the white skinned Irish.

Jews came at the turn of the twentieth century only to be met with hatred and anger for being people of a dark and sinister race. Opponents of these immigrants insisted they could never assimilate within  ‘white society’ because they had a different religion, ate different foods, dressed differently, spoke Yiddish, and simply could never become integrated within ‘white society.’ The story is always the same, new immigrants are DIFFERENT. Ironically, Hispanics were here before the British arrived in the 1600s. And, Spanish regarded themselves as superior to native born peoples.

Being white is always changing. But, today, the former ‘dark skinned Jews and Irish’ now insist they are WHITE!

Why Hillary Clinton Lost!

Each passing day it becomes clearer and clearer why Hillary Clinton  failed to win this presidential election. Actually, she did gain two million MORE votes than gained by Donald Trump, but she allowed this idiot to gain victory in the electoral college. So, why?

1. Hillary Clinton simply placed the votes of white men and women on the ‘they will vote for me because I am a Democrat’ column.

2.  At each debate Donald Trump boasted and claimed he would make ‘America Great Again’ by bringing back jobs. Each time he made these ludicrous promises, the Clinton response was to discuss his groping of women. She NEVER presented evidence that proved his promises were impossible to keep.

3. Hillary Clinton never discussed the impact of technology on work in modern America.

4. Hillary Clinton never proposed specific laws that could assist those losing their jobs to technology such as retraining for new careers.

5. Hillary Clinton played to  women and black and Hispanics based on their race and ethnicity rather than on how her victory benefited them economically!

6. Sorry, expressions such as ‘Black Lives Matter’ were divisive, they never made poor white people jump with joy. Clinton would have sent a more powerful message by saying: ‘All lives matter, and as president, my task is working to ensure that ALL Americans get high paying jobs.’

7, Trump  lied and lied about our economy and Hillary Clinton and they never were refuted leading many Americans to actually believe he could achieve these nonsensical promises! Simply, put, Hillary Clinton lacked a five point economic program to ensure jobs!
