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.

 

Katrina Pierson, Asine Idiot

Anyone watching CNN each night is compelled to listen, or at least, attempt;t to listen to a group of supporters of Donald Trump. There is no doubt, that Katrina Pierson, the one with dark hair, usually, Trump women must be blondes, to go along with Fox News. I confess to  having  a death wish of being with Katrina on the day of the election in order to hear her say:

“Mr. Trump really won this election. He is so loved by millions and millions of people, but the Obama Gestapo went to extraordinary measures in order to block their Constitutional right to vote. After all,he is the greatest businessman that is currently in America. We all love Donald Trump, he is the only one who speaks for the American people. Well, this election was stolen, and we all know it was stolen by hordes of Mexican rapists who held off on their rapes for twenty four hours to vote for Crooked Hillary Clinton!”

It turns out that Ms. Pierson was arrested and convicted for stealing. When asked about this, she said: “technically, I  was arrested for shop lifting, but the important point is that I never felt that I was shop lifting.”

She was asked about the Trump  claim that Obama created ISIS. Her response: “Mr.Trump never said that President Obama actually signed the papers creating ISIS.”

When asked if Mr. Trump changed his mind on this claim, she said:
Well, yes, but  actually,no. “

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I await Donald Trump raising the issue of how the Democratic Party and President Roosevelt forced Japan to attack America.

Let me ge this straight, Barack Obama was born in the 1960s, and we had the Vietnam war in the 1960s, now you know who caused the Vietnam war!

There are currently over 50 law suits against Trump in Florida by merchants claiming Donald cheated them, so who is the “CROOK?”

I am certain if we ever get to read Trump’s tax return we will learn that he  paid no  more than 5% in taxes.

After the fantastic display of American greatness at the Olympics, I await Donald promising that if elected he will make “AMERICA GREAT AGAIN IN THE OLYMPICS”

Then again, since we no longer are a “Great Nation,” how the hell did our athletes demonstrate their greatness?

How come Crooked Hillary Clinton did not join the Armed forces during the Vietnam war?

Donald wants to punch someone out, but, obviously, he never had the  urge to punch out Communist Viet Cong guerrillas in Vietnam.

While the brave John McCain was enduring endless torture in a Viet Cong prison, Donald was enduring the torture of being exhausted fucking models.

 

Donald Concerned About An Honest Election

Donald Trump is concerned about the need  for a fair and honest election this year. Right now his main concern is that he will get cheated in the state of Pennsylvania. “Because if we get cheated out of this election, if we keg cheated out of a win in  Pennsylvania, which is a vital state, especially when I know what is  happening here, folks,  we have to call up law enforcement,  and we have to call the sheriffs,  and the police…”

The latest polls indicate that Hillary Clinton has a nine  point lead in Pennsylvania. Naturally, I have been informed by Trump officials, that this so called lead was created by crooked CNN polls and crooked national polls, and most probably if we could actually read ALL Clinton emails, the truth about how this crook is trying to steal the election  from Trump would finally emerge.

Donald, 31 of 50 Governors in the US are Republicans. I assume, since you have no knowledge of American history, no one has told you that States conduct the national election, not the Federal government. If anyone is going to steal this election, it is the Republican party!

Trump Idiocy Reaches New Level

I have taught a course on the Middle East for over twenty years which, I gather enables me to comment on the Middle East. But, every time I watch  CNN program where the name, Donald Trump, is mentioned, this dark haired idiot woman at some point begins to babble about  what has or is been happening in the Middle East. One can readily win a bet that it is simply a matter of time before incredible ignorance pours from her mouth.

According to Katrine Pierson, President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are responsible for the war in Afghanistan. I must confess that somehow I recall that American forces invaded Afghanistan in the fall of 2001 in response to the 9/11 attack. She then went on to claim that al-Qaeda was defeated in 2007, and then it came back due to Obama. She also claimed: “remember, we weren’t even in Afghanistan at this time. Barack Obama went into Afghanistan.”

Of course, her rambling is simply utter nonsense. And, she is a “chief spokesperson” for Donald Trump. Frankly, I doubt whether Ms. Pierson or Donald Trump even knows where Afghanistan is. And, forty percent of Americans want this idiot king for their president!!

Dress Well In Water

I was raised in an east European Jewish neighborhood in which many women wore head coverings, and many men wore a Yarmulke on top of their head. If one examines pictures of women swimming during the early twentieth century, it is clear that women covered their entire bodies with clothes. Of course, this was the norm in most CHRISTIAN nations of the western world.

But, today, there is great concern if a Muslim woman dares to cover up while bathing. Officials in the south of France forced a Muslim group to cancel a pool party because its sponsors wanted women to cover up. The wearing of veil and anything that covers the face  when in the public is illegal in France. So, we have gone from covering up in pools to wearing scanty swim suits because the entire nation would collapse. When will common sense arrive in France?

Frankly, take it off, or put it on are one in the same!

Going My Way

Republican leaders are going crazy because their nominee for the presidency insists that he alone knows how to win the golden prize.Donald intends to walk the path toward victory by proceeding going his way to victory. Ironically, his success agains the bumbling gang of 16 went to his head, and if he could beat the likes of Paul and Carson and Christie, why not Hillary Clinton. If he received thunderous applause from the white folks in the Republican party, why not from the entire United States of America? Donald continues seeking to hear white people shouting with glee when he promises to knock the crap out of Muslims, whoever they are and wherever they be.

Fortunately for Donald, each day reveals more and more emails. Hillary and Bill decided they also wanted to become millionaires, and now they suffer the consequences of this decision. Instead of following the examples of Jimmy Carter or Harry Truman, both of whom preferred a post presidency of no money from businessmen, Hillary wanted more and more money. She wanted to go her way toward cash, and now suffers the consequence of losing respect from millions. Sometimes in life, instead of going your way, it might be wise to follow the path of others who were caring, decent people.

In the end, the best path is that of George Washington. He left the presidency, and returned home. He never sought any riches, never desired more power, just return to a life of hard work. There is the path of power, the path of money, and then there is the path of just being an ordinary American. We conclude with a story about Harry Truman. He had returned to his beloved Missouri and was being driven to the state capitol for a meeting by the police chief of Kansas City. They saw a woman driving some pigs. Harry got out of the car, helped the woman get her pigs across Highway 70. When later asked why he did that, Harry replied: “I was a farmer, before becoming President.” That is why he was loved by ordinary Americans.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Given the fantastic success of our athletes in the Olympics, will Donald promise to make America Great Again in future Olympics?

I suspect that Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump begin the day by gazing into the mirror and saying: “I’m the Greatest!”

What do the tax returns of Donald Trump reveal? How about the Russians hacking into them.

Some day a Trump economist will explain to me how reducing taxes by trillions for the wealthy enables the average American to go on a buying spree.

Each year thirty thousand die as a result of gun violence–most by themselves- but no one in Congress considers this a problem. Wonder why?

I’m still waiting for George H.W. Bush to comment on Trump.

Miracle in 2016, Donald Trump gave a speech with hands by his sides!

Buddies Again

There is an old expression that birds of a feather flock together. Well, we now have an example as Turkey and Russia agree to end their conflict and work together on issues in the Middle East. The drive to become buddies after Turkey shot down a Russian plane, and refused to apologize arose from the recent attempted “coup”by some Turkish officers to overthrow the Erdogan government. Erdogan insists the coup was planned by Fetullah Gulen, a former ally, who Erdogan insists is involved in secret plans to overthrow his government.

Actually, Erdogan has used the failed coup to virtually end democracy in Turkey. Over sixty thousand Army officers, police officers, judges, lawyers, deans of college, classroom teachers and journalist are now in prison. President Erdogan demands the American government turn over Gulen who currently lives in the US. “Sooner or later the US will make a choice. Either Turkey or FETO(Gulen’s group.”

Unfortunately for Erdogan, in the US there are courts -not under control by the government to obey its demands. In order to send Gulen back to Turkey necessitates a court procedure. It is NOT a decision the president can make by himself. This concept of limited power by the president is foreign to President Erdogan and President Putin.
