Will Donald Make Nice?

These are the April days in which Donald  Trump has to begin deciding how he will conduct his campaign in the fall. Many of his supporters are asking him to behave “more presidential.” So, here is the new Donald Trump:

“I will not call women sluts or bimbos, those terms are now reserved for men.”

“I will build the smallest, the world’s smallest WALL.”

“Ted Cruz is  not a liar, he is more like a schmuck.”

“I got nothing against Hispanics, for all I am concerned they have the right to live in Mexico.”

“Don’t look at Hillary’s face, just look at that dumpy figure!”

“I now second everything Bernie is saying about Wall Street crooks.”

“NO, I do not wish to screw my daughter, just my wife!”

“John Kasich is just a northern version of Jeb Bush.”

“I REALLY love Israel and who the fuck cares about Palestinians, they got no votes in America”

“Megyn, I will even screw you.”

 

 

 

Send In The Guns

During the past decade we Americans have fought for attaining the goal of schools in which children learn without any fear of being subjected to physical violence. The state of Texas has gone even further with legislation that enables each and every student to, not only bring their books to school, but bring their guns. Just think how safe teachers will feel knowing each and every kid is carrying a loaded weapon. Pose a question,inform the student he is wrong, and then duck or run for your life!

Schools in Douglas County, Colorado have  taken another step to securing a safe school environment. They are now arming security personnel with assault rifles. So, when a shooter blasts away, he will face a response from a dozen assault rifles. Perhaps, it is time  to train children in how to protect themselves from those who allegedly are there to protect them. I got the solution: Arm each student with an assault rifle and let everyone blast away!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Once upon a time we Americans built great roads and bridges, today we can’t even repair those roads and bridges.

Some day Ted will explain how we ensure people pay accurate taxes when there is no IRS.

These days I wish George Bush was still president, I mean a Republican president.

I would so wish to see Bernie and Donald face off against one another.

I can just see it, my dream is greater than your dream!

I wonder what Abraham Lincoln thinks about his  party up in Heaven.

Some days I wish we could have a great political debate about absolutely NOHING!

Let’s Not Protect Babies

Members of the Republican Party have incredible concern for the protection of babies while in the womb, but, frankly do not give a damn about them when leaving the womb. According to Congressman Trent Franks, “it took the Civil War to make the State sanctioned practice of human slaver come to an end.”He wants new legislation– the Prenatal Discrimination Act which will prevent the murder of those in the womb. Trent is no different from any other Republican congressmen when it comes to “protecting”babies. But, for some reason, he has no interest in:

1. Free medical care for newborn babies.

2. Paying mothers to remain home with full pay and care for babies.

3. Paying fathers to remain home with babies.

4. High paying wages for all so they can provide for babies.

5. Free childcare for babies.

And, so on, and so on.

Ah, to be young and to believe the world can be perfect!

In American history the only time there is great change is when Congress is controlled by a liberal majority.

Some believe that by saying something, it results in doing something.

Death in the city is not proud.

My life  has taught me to go one step at  a time. Begin with success and it builds toward greater success.

So What’s New?

There is slight doubt that millions of young Americans want to get good jobs, they want to  end their student debt, they want to punish Wall Street for its behavior in stacking the deck for themselves and against the rest of America. I am 85 years old and have witnessed young Americans suddenly become fighting liberals who demand purity from those seeking office. In 1968, millions of young Americans blamed Vice President Hubert Humphrey for failing to persuade President Johnson from immediately ending the war in Vietnam. For some strange reason, a vice president lacks such power over his boss.

The end result is that millions of young Americans refused to vote and Richard Nixon became the president. We are today at a similar point in time. Yes, Hillary Clinton is not perfect. She has made mistakes along the path to seeking the presidency. Then again, who  has not? Reality, is that a failure to vote for her means whoever the Republicans nominate will win. And,THAT means, the Supreme Court will continue denying the right to vote, it will continue allowing the wealthy to use their money to ensure the top one percent remain the top one percent.

Hopefully, young Americans will learn from past mistakes. Hopefully, that is.

Let’s Not Vote

The initial expansion of the right to vote in America occurred during the election Andrew Jackson in 1828. The fight to ensure that even women could vote did not occur until a hundred years later when women go the franchise. Of course, what I  just wrote is NOT exactly true because black skinned men and women really did not get the right to vote until the 1960s. Oops, that statement is not exactly true because Southern whites have been fighting for half a century to continue denying the right to vote by blacks and poor people.

A few months ago Arizona held its primaries for Republicans and Democrats. The State government reduced the number of polling places from 200 to 70 so many people never actually got the opportunity to vote. Oh, I forgot that Republicans are concerned about not allowing fraud in voting. In the 2012 election of the over one hundred million who did vote, fifteen cases were uncovered of voter fraud!

So, this year each Republican controlled state will  be working hard to deny the right to vote by THOSE PEOPLE– and you know who are THOSE PEOPLE!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

After his political career ends, Ted Cruz can get many movie parts as the evil guy.

Being raised as an Orthodox Jew  I can never figure our why people are so upset at anyone having something on the top of their head.

I am in wonder how these days a baseball player who hits 200 makes more in a  year than Babe Ruth did in his lifetime.

God Bless Kobe Bryant for ending his career scoring 60 points in a  game.

Oh well, it is Thursday in Chicago and only one person shot to death.

Story of train dispatcher who sent eleven people to their death because he had to play video games!

Am I queer, I have never  played a video game?

Where Is Leadership?

I was raised when Franklin Roosevelt was President, and then witnessed the remarkable successful leadership of plain-speaking Harry Truman. Dwight Eisenhower became a calm, effective leader who would not give in to demagogues such as Senator Joseph McCarthy–think Donald Trump or Ted Cruz–and then came John Kennedy. Heck, Richard Nixon did a remarkable leadership role in foreign policy. Compared to the latest group of so-called leaders of Republicans, Ronald Reagan comes across as a voice of reason.

What does an effective leader accomplish? He brings together all factions within society in order to accomplish tasks needed by ALL members of society. Republican Dwight Eisenhower never repealed a single law from the New Deal  because those laws made America a more peaceful and caring society. John Kennedy asked “what can  you do for America”rather than what can you get from America. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz seek to turn Americans against one another. They NEVER propose anything that would address the needs of poor or middle class Americans. A great leader such as Abraham Lincoln refused to urge hatred toward the South even though over 400,000 Union soldiers were killed by those from the South.

Bernie preaches anger and hate–yes, I agree the top one percent are bastards, but if the only message is hate, that merely tears society into pieces. An issue is challenging  the top one  percent to conduct their affairs with recognition that ALLl Americans must succeed if there is to be an American Nation. Where is an American leader who challenges each and every American to work for the prosperity of All AMERICANS?

A Fixed System?

Donald Trump has uncovered a fascinating aspect of the American political system. “The system, folks, is rigged. It’s a rigged dirty system. I say this to the RNC and I say this to the Republican party. You’re going to have a big problem folks, because there are people who don’t like what’s going on.” Donald believes there is only one person who should be the Republican party and guess who is that man?

Ironically, it is Donald Trump who has now become the spokesperson for reform of American politics. Yes, Donald, the system is rigged. Imagine that a wealthy person with gobs of dough to throw around winds up as a candidate of the Republican party? We certainly have come a long way from an era in which ordinary men could become a President. Harry Truman was a high school graduate who lacked any source of income and HE became the president. Oh, and after leaving the office of president he refused to allow his name to be used by any business corporation. The sum total of what he received after leaving the presidency was –ZERO. When was the last time an ordinary political leader won the office of president. Another ironic aspect of this idea is that was Bill Clinton -before he became wealthy using the names of “President.’

The system is rigged for those with money who want to use the system to help those with money get more and more money. And guess who is the symbol of this rigged system?
