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!

Free Enterprise Under Trump

Donald Trump has presented himself as the champion of free enterprise. He wants to get rid of government regulations, and allow business to conduct their affairs without worrying about this or that government regulation. He wants to end the ‘Death Tax'(inheritance tax) although at present 98% of Americans to not pay this tax. If the tax is ended, the family of Donald Trump will gain an extra three billion dollars upon his death. However, there are other aspects of the  incoming Trump administration.

1. The new Ambassador from the Philippines is a business partner of Donald Trump.

2. Trump will be paid about $1,500,000 for the rent of Trump Towers by the Secret Service which is there to protect his life.This is the first time in history a president gets paid for the Secret Service which guards his life!

3. The new Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. has become the new headquarters of foreign agents seeking goodies from the federal government. Trump is the first president to actually openly get paid by lobbyists.

4. Oh, ordinarily, a president places his stocks in a blind trust  supervised by an impartial person with NO connection to the president. In Donald’s case,the impartial person is really  three people, his children!

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

There is only ONE Donald Trump, he will not change now that he is president.

Why do we say “Islamic terrorists” but never “Christian Nazi terrorists?”

All who voted for Donald Trump voted for hate and anger.

This is the first election in which Americans did not believe their nation was GREAT.

Each day, each week in Chicago the innocent die by gun violence.

Every gun in America should be thrown into the Pacific ocean.

Steven Hawkins doesn’t believe this planet will endure forever, hopefully,for a thousand years?

To be selected for a government job with Trump, one must hate the “enemy” which is US.

Why not Ivanka for Secretary of Commerce, she sells products?

I await Donald’s grandson as Secretary of Education, he knows all about schools.

Now, Americans understand how Hitler came to power in a decent nation of people.

Happy Days For Bigots

After reading white supremacist materials and viewing videos of these white anglo Saxon men and women, it made me aware of why they are smiling these days. For the first time in ninety years these bigots actually have access to the national government. Steve Bannon is now a top advisor to Donald Trump. He headed Breitbart news which is a favorite of any and all right wing, white supremacist, anti-semites, haters blacks, women rights, and supporters of any cop who shoots a black person.

Liberals and decent people might be upset, but, many of them voted for a man who openly said that he hated Muslims, that Hispanics were rapist and murderers who were out to get your wife, girl friend or mother–and, also your sister. If you lie down in the mud, you  rise covered by mud, and you smell of mud. This will be a wonderful Christmas for those who hate, and hate, and hate!

These are joyous days for those with a million dollars in the bank.

These are joyous days for those who preach hatred.

Rudy Giuliani has extensive foreign policy experience, he has made numerous trips to Staten Island.

I forgot,  Rudy Giuliani wants to become Attorney General so he can lock up a candidate for president.

Ben Carson as a member of the Cabinet is akin to allowing a kindergarten child to run your classroom.

I assume that Donald Trump will decorate the oval office with pictures of  his heroes–Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

Trump And Constitution

We now have a president who has made statements for over a year that once in power he will order those in the armed forces to commit crimes. He has said on  more than one occasion that he would order the killing of terrorists as well as their families. After the end of WWII, the Nuremberg Trials were held in which German generals were placed on trial for ordering the murder of civilians. Those in our military are governed by the Military Code of Justice. The United States has signed the Geneva Conventions which make it a crime to kill civilians.

Thus, any officer who  was ordered by the president to kill a civilian and carried out such an order would be guilty of violating the Military Code of Justice since this violates the Geneva Conventions. I frankly doubt if Donald Trump has any idea about the Geneva Conventions nor that giving such orders violates our owned of justice. There is no doubt our Joint Chiefs of Staff would refuse such orders, and thus create a Constitutional crisis. So, what would President Trump then do–fire the Joint Chiefs of Staff???

The idea of Sarah Palin as Secretary of the Interior is NOT a joke, but, actually, it is.

These are sad and frightening days for Hispanic children.

These are sad and frightening days for Muslim children in America.

Hell, these are sad and frightening days for critics of Donald Trump, he is a man who desires revenge.

Rudy Giuliani as Attorney General, wow, a man who seeks revenge on a former First Lady!

Now, many Americans can understand how people felt in the early days of Adolf Hitler.

Anger, Hate, Revenge, are the important words of the Republican party.

World Cries Over Donald

World leader are even in a greater state of shock than are Americans over the impossible becoming the reality  of “President Donald Trump. Following are some comments from periodicals.

Guardian, UK:  “The unthinkable is only unthinkable if it happens. The Trump  triumph has echoes of the increasing alarming right ward shift in politics of other post industrial democracies to which  progressives have produced inadequate responses. It will be cheered in Moscow and Damascus which will feel embolded. But this is primarily an American tragedy.”

Der Spiegel, Germany: “Crude populism has triumphed over reason. Trump’s success is a shock for all those who had counted on the political wisdom of America. For Trump’s islamophobic, nationalistic, hateful statements only one thing can be said for it,  it won’t be good.”

Gerard Araud, French Ambassador to the US: “This is the end of an epoch. After this vote, anything is possible.”

For Donald Trump–Rudy Speaks

We decided in the spirit of fairness to allow supporters of Donald Trump to present their argument why he should be the next president.

Rudy Giuliani: As you know I was the one who saved the people of New York City on 9/11.  It was my bravery walking through Harlem with only a hundred cops  that showed Islamic terrorists they had better not fool around with me, nor the president of  the United States– frankly, for the moment, that name sort of escapes my memory.

So, why am I for Donald Trump to be president? Good question. Frankly, to be honest, Donald Trump if elected would enable me to meet some cute chicks, and since I have now been married this third time,  who knows, maybe I can try it once again. At least, then being married four times, I will surpass the red headed guy. Oh, why vote for Donald Trump? Great question. Put it this way, at least he  is not Hillary Clinton, and, for sure, he sure is not me!!

Angry Americans For Trump

These days there are many angry people in America, most probably, the angriest is Rudy Giuliani. But, central to the anger of Trump supporters is  the belief that America is no longer a Great Nation, and foreign type people are swarming into our beloved land and transforming it into a den of iniquity and evil. Many recall the “good old days” when white males ran the land, and blacks, Hispanics and women knew their place. No blacks were marching in the streets, because if they did, a group of white men dressed in white robes would explain who ran the show, and who was expected to get into the gutter when a white person walked down the street.

They are angry at rise of minority groups to political power. Many also worked in plants producing automobiles or making shirts and pants, or dwelled in our coal mines. Ironically, these same people supported laws that made organizing workers into unions difficult, and the result was that the boss paid low wages and fired at will. They voted for Republican politicians who prevented laws that provided low cost colleges, decent health care, retraining programs  that would enable the displaced coal miner to get a technology job. They voted for Republicans who refused to pass legislation that would create high wage jobs rebuilding our infrastructure.

So, what happened? A high percent of Silicon Valley tech jobs are now filled by people from India,China or Pakistan. The angry people should gaze into a mirror if they want to know how our job situation became as it now is.
