NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I feel insulted,Trump has never tweeted me. Am I the only American who can make that statement?

These are glory days for the wealthy, another few million going their way.

I wonder if Donald ever met anyone who was not ‘FANTASTIC”

Amazing, the KKK is now to the left of the Trump administration.

I wonder when Trump will privatize the US armed forces.

Let me get this straight, reduce taxes and have more money. A bit confusing, but, what the heck, this is Trump time.

I still wonder if Ivanka is Secretary of State or Pence resigns and she becomes the vice president>

Handling Black Children

I currently live in Chicago so my daily newspaper must contain at least one shooting which entails the death of some young black girl or boy. The other day a grandson of a US Congressman was at home when two friends came to visit. Somehow, they wound up arguing about  clothes and a teen girl shot his grandson to death. So, reading this story about a seven year old boy in a Baltimore charter school did not surprise me.

Timothy Korr is seven. He was in a classroom when somehow he got into an argument with a  25  year old tutor, Trayson Gray, and  this argument between a seven year old and a 25 year old escalated into violence. The child wound up with a fractured jaw and two missing teeth. The adult insists the boy hit the wall. Let me get this straight, a grown man can not handle a seven year old boy without the child getting a fractured jaw!!

General Michael Flynn

As you recall or don’t recall, Donald Trump never ceased talking about emails and classified material and the need to send Hillary Clinton to prison for violating the law. So, who does he appoint as his National Security advisor, but General Michael Flynn who was reprimanded for misuse of classified materials and fired from his position in national security. Of course, Trump has been talking with General Petraeus about a position in his administration even though he was convicted of revealing classified material to his mistress.

Anyway, General Flynn has the reputation in his former work in national security of spouting nonsense and shooting off his mouth about  people and governments. He has stated:

1. The Muslim religion is not rational.

2. Sharia law is spreading in THE UNITED STATES.

3. Iran killed more Americans than did al-Qaeda.

4. He opposes the Iran nuclear deal and has talked about bombing Iran.

5. Most of his colleagues believed that he was irrational and lacked a competent view of foreign policy.

Who else to be the National Security advisor to the president??

Donald Wants To Bring People Together

Donald Trump told a gathering of his followers that he wants to bring Americans together again. Here is how he will do this:

1. He appointed Jeff Sessions as the new Attorney General, a man who will do NOTHING to prevent states from denying the right to  vote for Democrats.

2. His chief advisor is Steve Bannon, a man  supported by every neo-Nazi group who does not want his daughter to “go to school with Jewish girls.”

3. He has appointed  opponents of Obamacare to key positions even though a new survey by the Kaiser Foundation shows that most Americans agree with most of the ideas of Obamacare.

4. He just came out to send to jail or strip of citizenship Americans engaged in legal protests such as burning the American flag.

5. He has  yet to  appoint a single black American who is highly regarded by black Americans to any position in his Cabinet.

6.He continues frightening Hispanic children with his vow to send them back to Mexico.

Beyond that, he is bringing people together again.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Given the kleptocracy of the Trump family, I wonder if they  will not take White House silverware.

Difficult to imagine Trump and Romney having an intelligent discussion about foreign affairs.

Donald promised he knew more than the generals, I guess that’s why he is appointing generals to position after position.

One must admit that Trump does care about immigrants, he even married one.

We should award a medal to the American who never got tweeted by the new president.

I wonder how Sanders folks who insisted ALL POLITICIANS ARE THE SAME now think?

At this moment, I have more anger and hate for those who did not vote for Clinton than the Trump family.

 

Welcome Wall Street

As you recall, those who adore Donald Trump, he promised to rid Washington D.C. o f Wall  Street billionaires and restore America to the ordinary people of this land. Ah, I so remember Donald blasting Ted Cruz because his wife had worked for Goldman Sachs. Ah, that was then, and now is now. Billionaire Steve Munchin, formerly of Goldman Sachs is now the Secretary  of the Treasury. Wilbur Ross, another billionaire is now the Secretary  of Commerce. So wonderful that Wall Street has been driven from power, and ordinary Americans now run our country.

There is nothing surprising about Trump appointments. He has spent his entire life in the company of those with gobs of money. He literally does not know any ordinary middle class people, other than the doorman at Trump Towers who opens the door and says, “Good morning, sir.” Welcome to the new regime of the wealthy, for the wealthy, and BY the wealthy!

Tweet-In-Chief Tweets

In my childhood, President Franklin Roosevelt would give “Fireside Chats’ to discuss important issues with the American people. I recall in 1943 that he asked every American to get a copy of a newspaper which would have a map of the Middle East. He then proceeded to review military campaigns in the Middle East so all Americans could understand what was occurring in the area. Ah, that was then, and in 2016, we have a new president who has his approach to discussing issues of the day.

Anderson Cooper of CNN was surprised to see a Tweet from Donald Trump that made critical comments concerning his program last night. “When I first heard that he was tweeting about something that was on the broadcast, I got to thinking. Doesn’t he have, like, a briefing book on ISIS to be reading?” For God’s sake, Anderson,which is more vital to the survival of America, your negative remark about Donald Trump or some damn bunch of Islamic terrorists? Get your priorities straight!

Eat Corn Flakes Or Else!!

Since former Breitbart head, Steve Bannon became Trump’s top advisor, folks back at Breitbart are feeling their oats these days. From their perspective, from now on, Breitbart News is the most important news source in America, and the New York Times can get out of its way. Imagine the shock when Kelloggs decided to remove ads from the Breitbart site. Did these folks at Kelloggs grasp who is now running America? The Breitbsart staff is furious that any advertiser would remove their ads without first obtaining permission.

Breitbart termed the removal as “an escalation in the war by  left wing companies against conservative customers.” It went on to charge that Kellogg  was attempting to placate “left wing totalitarians and this is a disgraceful act of cowardice.” Gee, when I was a kid eating Corn Flakes, I never imagined that each bite was an attack on conservative values. Actually, I ate Corn Flakes because Joe DiMaggio ate Corn Flakes.

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!
