We offer observations on the human condition from a 26 year old mind trapped in an 86 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

The US government will now have a TWEET ROOM for national emergencies.

“Hatred” is the primary characteristic of Trump appointments.

These will be dark days for those who respect democracy in America.

One wonders how Sanders supporters who did not vote for Clinton, NOW FEEL.

Welcome to the  United States of Trump Kleptocracy.

I still doubt if Donald Trump has ever read the US Constitution.

I wonder how many Republicans in Congress will place nation before politics?

 

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!

We now have a Commander of Twitter as head of our armed forces.

The White House needs a play room for the new President.

What a wonderful experience  to witness Rudy shouting and Donald throwing mud pies as they discuss foreign affairs.

If ignorance was bliss, then President Trump would be continually happy.

Trump is the only president to be elected by a LANDSLIDE while losing the popular vote by two million votes.

Mitt Romney must be smiling these days wondering why Donald might want him as Secretary of  State.

Trump will sign veto acts until someone tells him that Congress first has to pass laws.

These days single Jewish men are seeking to marry a Trump girl so they can become Secretary of State.

Boeing has a 50 billion contract to build planes for Iran, oh well, France has promised to do the building after Donald cancels the contract.

Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway says Trump supporters feel ‘betrayed’ by Donald talking with Romney about a Cabinet position. Wonder why?

Rudy Giuliani admits to giving speeches to Qatar businessmen, the same ones who gave money  to Osama bin Laden.

Whatever happened to Chris Christie, is he still alive?

Ben Carson may not accept a Cabinet position until someone explains to him what is this thing called–CABINET.

I have a hunch that Senator Rand Paul is the only Republican who will not be bought off by Donald Trump.

Fidel Finally Died

I recall in January, 1959 sitting with a group of University of California students as we watched Fidel Castro drive out the hated dictator, Batista, and hopefully bring democracy to the people of Cuba. He came across as a modern Robin Hood who was going to bring peace and prosperity to Cubans. Alas, that was the dream, and the reality was different. He  preached for a new world in which the under class  finally was able to share the riches of society. He promised to end dictatorship and replace it with a democracy.

The years passed, and Fidel became much of what he had overthrown. Yes,  he did bring education to all, yes, he did bring excellent medical care to all. BUT, his economics changed Cuba from a  nation in which the top five percent lived in comfort to a nation in which ALL(except for government bureaucrats) lived a life without comforts. He never was able to create a Communist economy that resulted in high standard of living for all. His promise of ‘democracy’ was transformed into a dictatorship in which those who disagreed did so in prison.

Yes, many Cubans will feel sad that the only ruler they had known for fifty years is now dead. It is up to his brother, Raul, to return to the  original promise of a democracy and a dynamic economy that brings a good life to ALL CUBANS.

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!

Donald Trump would prefer if every newspaper in America allowed him to write a daily column to present  his views’

Then again, he would like one hour a day on every media outlet in which he explains why he is right.

Donald insists that he does not understand why new-Nazis love him. They do.

A difficult Thanksgiving this year with relatives gazing at one another with different feelings about Tump.

If you listen carefully, you can hear the screams of Rudy Giuliani shouting why he is ALWAYS RIGHT!

I have become sorry  for Chris Christie, the forgotten valet now in the kitchen eating with the help.

Has anyone considered Ivanka for Secretary of State, she certainly has the ear Donald Trump.

 

We Republicans Are Friends Of Black Folks

Some Republicans want Americans to understand their party is not only the conservative party, but at the same time, it is the  party that champions  rights for blacks and Hispanics. Just check the vote total. The overwhelming numbers of black and Hispanic Americans voted for the party that represented their views and needs. According to Carl HIgbe, “we are the Republican party. We are the party that freed the slave. We are the party of Martin Luther King.” Sounds OK to me. Everyone knows that Martin Luther King voted for Republicans, everyone knows that Republicans for years have been the party that cares for black and Hispanics.

Actually, there Is something correct in this statement. Lincoln DID end slavery. Theodore Roosevelt DID end segregation in the federal government. Dwight Eisenhower did support the Brown vs Board of Education Supreme Court decision. BUT, things changed. New Republicans assumed power. And, they did NOT give a damn about blacks, about Hispanics, they decided to get the votes of right wing white conservatives. Then was then, now is now, and Donald Trump does not give a damn about Hispanics or black folks, except they can work as maids or kitchen staff in his hotels.

Why Are Whites Smarter?

I admit to not being the smartest person on this planet so reading and hearing words spoken by neo-Nazi supporters of Donald Trump has clarified some mysteries of life for me.  I was informed by a leading  thinker of the friends of Steve Bannon the reason why those with white skins are smarter, more intelligent and more brilliant scientists than those with darker skin colors.

It has to do with climate. If one lives in a cold climate then one has to plan how to get food when things are too cold to grow. So, one sits around THINKING which means the outcome is something brilliant. Where to store food, how to discover ways of securing food in the winter, and so on. BUT, if one is in the jungles where there is food everywhere, then one’s mental capacities are not challenged. One does NOT THINK. Just pick up the food and eat and eat

I trust this explanation explains why  white skinned folks are smarter than dark skinned folks. Just remember, these are the guys who voted for Donald Trump.

Our Next Attorney General

Senator Jeff Sessions twenty years ago appeared before the US Senate Judiciary committee in order to secure its approval to become a federal judge. J.Gerald Herbert, a civil rights attorney was  told in secret by Senator Jeremiah Denton that he was to testify that Sessions was a fantastic nominee and never to make any derogatory comments. However, Herbert told the Committee that had once told him the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union were “un-American because they they wanted to shove civil rights down the throats of people trying to solve problems on their own.” Oh, he also said anyone supporting civil rights was “a disgrace to his race.” And, the ‘race’ was none other than the white race.

So, fifty years after the murder of Martin Luther King we will have an Attorney General who has the support of the Ku Klux Klan and just about every white supremacist group in America. What was that about -time standing  still in the year 1952 when blacks knew their place, and stepped into the gutter when a white person walked on the sidewalk. Ah, the Good Old Days when being WHITE meant something!
