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!

The Bully Within Is The Coward Outside

There is no question that Donald Trump is causing numerous Republicans to reconsider the meaning of what constitutes being a Republican. Frank Lavin was a Ronald Reagan aide and has always voted for Republicans. He described Donald Trump as failing in terms of “character, and behavior. Trump is a bully, and devoid of grace and magnanimity.” These words come up repeatedly from Republicans who desperately want to see a Republican in the  White House, but they do have children,and how do they look their children in the face,  is the question?

Actually,this issue has come up in past American history. During the Vietnam war, numerous political leaders witnessed their children active in the anti-war group. During the day,men like Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara had to discuss policy with President Johnson,only to go home to angry children who believed he was serving the devil. Anyone who votes for Donald Trump has to consider  explaining to their children a vote for a bully, an bigot, a coward,and a man whose main principle in life is–HIMSELF!

Just remember this “fighting man ready to punch out people,” had four draft deferments during the Vietnam war, and never served in the armed forces where  he could have punched out Communist guerrillas.

GOP Analysts Declare Donald Unfit

A group of about  55 Republican foreign policy experts signed a letter that states Donald Trump is not temperamentally fit to become president of the nation. They were more focused upon his temperament,his inability to discuss issues with experts,listen to advice, balance conflicting  proposals, and reach a conclusion. Naturally, Trump supporters argued these so called “experts”were the ones who got us into the Iraq War, so why listen to their advice about anything? Of course, these “experts” ranged from those who served Ronald Reagan to George H.W. Bush to George Bush.

They have identified a key issue in this election–the temperament of the President. During the Cuba Missile crisis of 1962,the world was very, very close to a  nuclear war that could have ended civilization as we know it. President Kennedy spent two days listening to the ideas of members of the military, foreign policy experts,before he reached a decision to avoid nuclear conflict with the Soviet Union. Every single action of his plan was carefully designed, members of the military were told they could NOT fire any weapon without the consent of the president.

There is absolutely no way that Donald Trump could have handled the Cuba Missile Crisis. I believe Hillary Clinton would have listened, obtained multiple plans,and work to avoid military conflict. Her experience has trained her mind to think in this manner.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder why Don Rumsfeld is  silent about his party’s nominee?

Short sure is great when engaged in gymnastics.

I spend my nights thinking about which Cabinet position, Ivanka will fill.

If only Hillary would just say, “I was wrong,” the topic of emails would disappear.

These days Mitt Romney comes across a great statesman.

God, would I welcome one HONEST comment from Paul Ryan!

John Boehner sleeps peacefully these nights.

It apparently is OK for men to hug and kiss in the Olympics.

Watching The Olympics

Every four years I discover myself watching sporting events that I would never waste a moment of my time gazing at in the normal course of events. Ah, the Olympics, a time to become a super super patriot, and cheer on OUR team, regardless of whether or not you give a damn about the sporting event. Why would any intelligent person gaze with interest at a bunch of guys pedaling their bikes up and down a hill? After five minutes of this “sporting event,” my eyes grow weary, and I just want to watch a ball game.

The gymnast event captures my attention for a moment. OK, so I could not balance myself on anything, big deal. Frankly, it takes a freak to jump up and come down on a bar. In all honesty, watching rather attractive females always turns me off, because the manner of their dress is a sex breaker. I do find interesting when a little girl gazes at her score, gets the results, and another little girl sort of gives her the look–only 1430!

I confess my patriotism does come to the fore when OUR boys win the swimming event. And, by an entire, tenth of a second. Frankly, the playing of the Star Spangled Banner does awaken my patriotic spirit which was felt in the US Army. To sum up, a high percent of these events just are boring as hell. When else would I watch a volley ball game??

Donald On Cabinet

Many mock Donald Trump for failure to conduct himself in a presidential manner. He was asked by Angela Davis as to who he would place in his Cabinet. Donald responded: “There are so many different ones  to choose. I can tell you everybody would say, ‘place Ivanka in it. Put Ivanka in it. You know that!” I assume there are other noteworthy people  he is considering:

Sarah Palin: Who else but Sarah could be the Secretary of the Interior than a fast shooting person who loves the outdoors?

There is always Chris Christie as Attorney General, he has experience dealing with the law.

Anyone of the Kardashians can handle the job of Secretary of Commerce, they know a lot about making money.

Newt Gingrich could be Secretary of Education, he knows a lot about how to marry women and educate children.

Donald Trump Jr. can handle the job of Secretary of State, he knows how to negotiate with dad.

Rudy Giuliani is perfect for Secretary of Defense, he already saved America after 9/11.

 

Another Shootout At OK Corral

First, let me offer an apology because I watch so many Law and Order episodes on TV that somehow I got the idea there were police negotiators who worked to avoid shooting incidents. But, day after day, there is always a story in which some person with, or without  a gun, was confronted by police, and the end result was death from police bullets. Here is the latest:

Koryn Gaines, age 23, and her boyfriend were at home when police appeared with warrants for traffic violations. Ms. Gaines,while holding a child in her arms, stood confronting the police with a  shotgun while shouting: “if you don’t leave, I’m going to shoot you.”

1.Yes, she did fire the first shot.

2. Police fired a round.

3. Gaines blasted away with her shotgun, still holding the baby in her arms.

4. Police then discharged their weapons, and she fell to the ground. By some miracle, the baby was not shot.

Questions: Why didn’t police summon a negotiator while they initially faced her? Why didn’t police remove themselves to a distant position and summon a negotiator?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump has as much knowledge of Crimea as Donald Rumsfeld had about Iraq.

If anyone can make sense of what Trump says, they definitely SHOULD vote for him.

I am growing more comfortable with Tom Kaine, he is a nice guy.

Sanders supporters should understand that in 1932, German people like you guys said, “Hitler is no different than the other politicians!”

Anyone Donald Trump insults must be a “little guy.”

I wonder what the Bush family felt when Donald said we should get out of NATO!

These days I really miss the days of Richard Nixon.

Choice Nixon or Trump–Nixon hands down!

 

 

 

Bloomberg On Trump

Michael Bloomberg gave a speech at the Democratic convention. He did not speak as a Democrat, nor as a Republican, but as an Independent. He also spoke as a successful businessman. He summed up Donald in one sentence: “I’m from New York and I know a con man when I see one.” As one born in the Bronx, New York, one learns from day  one of life never, ever to trust anyone who boasts that he can make everyone rich tomorrow.

Bloomberg raised some points:

1. Why doesn’t Donald reveal his tax returns? What is he hiding?

2. Actually, the Bloomberg business report claims that Donald has about $2.2 billion rather than ten billion. He also has about $600 million in debt.

3. The Trump organization has experienced multiple bankruptcies which allows to end payment to workers and any business that furnished service.

4. As of this date, Trump has NOT provided any figures that explain how he will bring back jobs with high pay. Of course, he has never explained why  businessmen should pay high wages rather than investing in technology.

5. There is no evidence that workers at Trump businesses earn higher wages than at other organizations.

Donald Flunks History–Again

It is rather clear that Donald Trump and a history book never formed much of a friendship.  Donald on the origin of the European Union: “the reason it got together was like a  consortium  so that it could compete with the United States.” Now, if Donald Trump had taken my history course,he would have learned:

1. During World War II, most of Western Europe had been destroyed by the German army,and subsequent battles.

2. The American Marshal Plan was designed to help Europe rebuild itself, a condition for assistance from the US was for European nations to work together and share resources. America feared that unless Western Europe was rebuilt, communism might trump in their nations.

3. European nations came together AT THE REQUEST OF THE UNITED STATES. The last thing on their mind was competing with the United States. Their major reason was to restore the destroyed economies.

4. Actually, there was another  reason, American leaders wanted Europe to rebuild, SO THEY WOULD PURCHASE AMERICAN GOODS!!

Donald, have you tried reading a book?
