The Danger of Words

Anyone who lived through the 1960s is quite familiar with the power of words to destroy. Within a ten year period, President John Kennedy was murdered, Malcolm X was killed, Martin Luther King was murdered, and two months later Robert Kennedy was murdered. Perhaps, perhaps, Donald Trump is oblivious to the danger of his words, I  am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. But, his nonstop shouting hate and anger toward Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton could easily be interpreted by some of the nut cases attending his rallies to blast away.

Yuval Rabin, son of former Israel Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin warned Americans of the danger of shouting hate. His father was killed by an Israel hater who was  urged on to hate by people like Benjamin Netanyahu. ‘Trumps’s  words are an incitement  to the type of political violence that touched me personally.” Netanyahu continued to claim Rabin was a “traitor” for seeking peace with Palestinians. One day, someone transformed those words into action. Will the same occur in America?

Videos Galore-Should We?

I am 85 years old and do not own any form of camera. No, I do not wander the  streets taking photos of people getting shot,or of people, getting assaulted. Each time seeing a photo of a woman getting assaulted the initial thought in my mind is –“what the fuck are you doing taking a photo, why the hell don’t you put down your stupid camera and go help the person!”

We have become a nation of observers. We spend each day seeking to find a scene of human behavior in which some individual is being mistreated, and our first thought is how to convey this image to all my “friends.” I find this behavior grotesque, it is demeaning to the humans spirit. Our first, and only, obligation to a person in need is to come to their aid. The act of taking a photo  injures the rights and dignity of people. Particularly, when someone commits an act that is a mistake, why must it be displayed for the world to witness?

I find taking a photo of someone being assaulted by the police is different. IN that case, one human is being hurt, the other human is committing an act of atrocity,we have the moral right to expose such cruelty to the world.

 

Republican Myths And Reality

I daily encounter people, including member of my own extended family who harbor the typical Trump nonsense about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s records in the Middle East. So, let me put to rest the myths and realities of the Middle East.

1. President Obama “withdrew American forces too early, and this  led to the rise of ISIS.”

2. “President Obama refused to maintain US troops in Iraq”

REALITY: The date to leave Iraq was set by President Bush. Obama simply adhered to the Bush deadline.

President Obama offered to leave 10,000 American soldiers in Iraq. The Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki insisted that if US troops remained and an American soldier was charged with a crime against an Iraqi citizen, the case would be tried in an Iraq court. Naturally,no American president would ever agree to such a demand.

3.”Al-Qaeda was defeated by 2007″ and then when Obama took office, he allowed in to return.

REALITY: Al-Qaeda was virtually defeated by 2007 due to two factors– the American military effort in cities, and the rise of Sunni Awakening Councils. These were organized by Sunni tribal leaders who were tired of al-Qaeda. They were assisted by US troops, and played a key role in virtually destroying  al-Qaeda. However, President Bush allowed Shiite Nouri al-Maliki to gain power. Maliki proceeded to arrest prominent Sunni leaders, broke his promise to US Military leaders to integrate Sunis and Shiites in the Iraq army. Maliki antagonized Sunni leaders and this caused was a key role in the tis of ISIS.

Neither President Obama nor Hillary Clinton had any role in the rise of ISIS. Guess whose mistakes created that organization?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

These days Mitt Romney comes across as the Republican who cares about all people.

So, what ever happened to the “hordes of rapists?”

I so would love to have a conversation with Jeb Bush, and have him explain his current state of mind.

Trump defenders should be issued a daily score card as to how to defend the latest stupidity.

Someone should explain to Donald how to use hands while giving a speech.

Face it, regardless of how many times people speak to Donald about coming across as “presidential,” he can only be who he is.

If Paul Ryan had lost his primary, the entire Republican party would have gone after Trump!

Why  is it that Trump female defenders on CNN are all blondes?

He Can’t Shut UP

One continually encounters arguments by Trump supporters who insist their candidate has had a few  rough moments, but he is now “on message.” So, Donald gave what he regards as an “economic message,” that, undoubtedly will bring back millions of “high paying jobs” and restore prosperity to coal miners and those who lost their jobs making clothes. For some reason, Donald believes that making shirts or pants is going to be a “high paying job.” But, alas, he can not even stick to this nonsense.

Donald was  praising himself–who other to praise– and boasted the NRA loved him.I doubt if New York City born Donald ever spent much time blasting away with a rifle. But, he could not resist the importance of telling gun lovers they knew how to handle Hillary.  Naturally, many who heard his comment interpreted it to  mean–shoot the Benghazi  broad! So, now Donald is dealing with this new problem– urge people to kill your opponent!

Let Me Shit In Peace

In many respects President Vladimir Putin is the Donald Trump of Russia, o one can say that Donald Trump is the Vladimir Putin of America. One must give credit to Putin for developing a police force that is constantly on the look for suspected Muslim terrorists. The other day in Moscow, Alisa Koschelleca,felt a bit sick in the train station so she went to the toilet.These days in Moscow, the police keep track of  how long one is in the toilet to shit.There is no doubt that when it comes to spotting Islamic terrorists in restrooms, Russian police lead the world.

Alisa was arrested for spending too much time on the toilet seat. She was brought to police headquarters and interrogated for three hours. I assume they checked her ass for explosives. Perhaps, this is a lesson for America. We need a shit force to check on suspicious activities in toilets. Perhaps, some woman or man is planning to blow up  a train station with a shit bomb!

Now, is America needs a shit detector,who better than Donald who nonstop shits on everyone at anytime.

Uncle Tom On Trump

Every so often on CNN there is some black dude, whether it be Ben Carson or some other distinguished looking black guy, but there pitch is that Donald Trump is the black man’s hero. So, I asked Uncle Tom to explain:

“Donald Trump is the only white guy in America, or white gal, for that matter who can create jobs in black neighborhoods. Look at his record: he personally created thousands and thousands of jobs in the private sector so it is simply a matter of time before he creates millions and millions of jobs. Let me cite an example, I was talking with Margaret Jones who works in a Trump hotel.Donald Trump has promised to raise all wages of maids at least TWENTY FIVE CENTS an hour! Do the math. $7.25 an hour, she soon will be making $7.50 an hour! Has Hillary Clinton raised wages for maids one single cent!

I know the liberal media spreads false stories that black folks do not like Donald Trump. Who would you rather have as president, a guy who creates thousands, no, millions of jobs, of some white gal who is crooked and a liar? Let me prove my point. The other day, I met Donald, and he did NOT ask me to carry his bag! He saw my suit, he saw my black face, and he made certain that I was the first person escorted out of the hotel!

Let me point out that Donald will get rid of those Hispanics. This means we black folks can now get high paying jobs picking fruit or being a nanny! God, I love that man, and, in conclusion, let me note that Donald has always welcomed Michael Jordan as guest in his hotels. Has Hillary Clinton done that  for any famous black athlete?”

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump would win any election on use of hands during a speech.

Why does Donald continue to point his hands down in making a point?

Jeb Bush son supports Trump in order to win an election in Texas. Another example of how the Bush family will sell soul to win an election.

Democrats this election simply provide ads from Republicans on why Trump is unfit to become president.

Frankly, I await ISIS bombs to aid the Trump drive for president.

Trump supporters on CNN panels always refer to him as “Mr. Trump,” never as Donald. Why?

Donald has taken out babies, what next, dogs?

 

 

GOP Analysts Declare Donald Unfit

A group of about  55 Republican foreign policy experts signed a letter that states Donald Trump is not temperamentally fit to become president of the nation. They were more focused upon his temperament,his inability to discuss issues with experts,listen to advice, balance conflicting  proposals, and reach a conclusion. Naturally, Trump supporters argued these so called “experts”were the ones who got us into the Iraq War, so why listen to their advice about anything? Of course, these “experts” ranged from those who served Ronald Reagan to George H.W. Bush to George Bush.

They have identified a key issue in this election–the temperament of the President. During the Cuba Missile crisis of 1962,the world was very, very close to a  nuclear war that could have ended civilization as we know it. President Kennedy spent two days listening to the ideas of members of the military, foreign policy experts,before he reached a decision to avoid nuclear conflict with the Soviet Union. Every single action of his plan was carefully designed, members of the military were told they could NOT fire any weapon without the consent of the president.

There is absolutely no way that Donald Trump could have handled the Cuba Missile Crisis. I believe Hillary Clinton would have listened, obtained multiple plans,and work to avoid military conflict. Her experience has trained her mind to think in this manner.

I wonder why Don Rumsfeld is  silent about his party’s nominee?

Short sure is great when engaged in gymnastics.

I spend my nights thinking about which Cabinet position, Ivanka will fill.

If only Hillary would just say, “I was wrong,” the topic of emails would disappear.

These days Mitt Romney comes across a great statesman.

God, would I welcome one HONEST comment from Paul Ryan!

John Boehner sleeps peacefully these nights.

It apparently is OK for men to hug and kiss in the Olympics.
