Presidents And Trump

At the age of 86 I have witnessed many presidents assume office. I thought it might be interesting to compare Donald to prior presidents.

Herbert Hoover was the only businessman to become president. A Donald Trump president would create the same results as that of the first president.

Franklin Roosevelt and Trump. Fred, you must be kidding!

Harry Truman was famous for “telling it as it is.” Donald Trump is famous for “not telling it as it is.”

Dwight Eisenhower was a Republican president who refused to lower the top tax rate of 90% since the wealthy had to pay their fair share of taxes. Guess what Donald Trump would have done with the 90% rate.

John Kennedy was a president who fought for his nation at war, Donald Trump is a coward who dodged the draft and has insulted POWs who served their nation.

Richard Nixon was a devious president, but he did open negotiations with Communist China, Donald will not even want negotiations with Iran.

Jimmy Carter was a decent person, then again, there is Donald Trump.

Ronald Reagan lowered taxes, and then raised them, sorry Donald, you are no Ronald Reagan.

George H.W.Bush raised taxes and got defeated, Donald Trump would only lower taxes on the wealthy one percent.

Bill Clinton witnessed a dramatic growth in jobs and balanced the budget, Donald Trump would increase our national debt by over three trillion dollars.

George Bush got us into the Iraq war, Donald Trump would get us deeper and deeper into the ISIS war.

Barack Obama was born in Africa while Donald Trump was born in New York City.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Who would sleep peacefully at night with a President Trump?

There are moments when I sit in shock at what people in Aleppo must daily endure.

Today, Ted Cruz came out for Donald Trump, tomorrow for the Devil.

Most black Americans hope today that no black male gets shot–by police.

I never thought in my life that someone like Donald Trump would be running for the presidency.

God, do I wish for the days of Mitt Romney!

I wonder if God worries about people uttering bad words about Him.

Players have kneeled, players have raised fists, what next,  play football?

Lesser Of Two Evils?

I continually encounter the concept that the current presidential election deals with two “evils” and I should vote for the lesser “evil.” Examine the reality:

1. Hillary Clinton will appoint liberals as judges to the Supreme Court. Donald Trump will appoint judges who impact the rights of women, and support the concept of rich controlling elections.

2.  Hillary Clinton will protect the health care of millions. Donald Trump promises to take away their health care.

3. Hillary Clinton will protect the rights of illegal immigrants and their American born children. Donald Trump will deport them.

4. Hillary Clinton will NOT reduce taxes on the wealthy. Donald Trump WILL reduce taxes for them.

5. Hillary Clinton will work to further the fight for climate control, Donald Trump will allow climate change to continue.

6. Hillary Clinton will work with our allies to prevent war. Who knows what Donald Trump will do!

And, so on an so on.

A Cop Gone Wild

People in America are displaying their concern for behavior of  SOME policemen by refusing to stand up for the Pledge of Allegiance or lie down or stage  peaceful demonstrations in Charlotte, North Carolina. Frankly, it is impossible to keep up with the shootings,t the demonstrations, the anger, the response by defenders of police that the only ones who are guilty are those who protest. However,in Tulsa County, District Attorney Kunsweiller has filed criminal charges against officer Betty Shelby for the murder of Terence Crutcher.

He charges that she “unlawfully and unnecessarily”shot and killed him when he had his hands in the air. We have TV footage, we have clear evidence that Mr. Crutcher did not have a  gun,nor was he under the influence of drugs. The criminal charge does bring some sort of closure to one case, but there are many others which will never result in any charges against any police.

Unfortunately, until there are new procedures in place within police departments to handle black skinned men who are charged with some crime, the end result will be another shooting, another upsurge of angry protestors.and more claims by Donald Trump that the victims are members of the police.

Philippine Police Gone Crazy

Believe it or not, but a Donald Trump clone has been elected president of the Philippines. Rodrigo Détente talks like Donald, he threatens like Donald, he has the same respect for law as Donald, but, in this case, he IS the president of a nation. Duterte has told police, he has told the armed forces, heck, he has told any vigilante who wants to settle a score with someone that all they have to do is claim that person is a drug dealer. “If you follow my orders you can’t have any problems. I will not allow any soldier or policeman to get jailed.

Pregnant Ruth Jane Tomdno,was in bed with her husband and children when the door burst open, and some men with masks entered. They “killed my husband like a pig.” It turned out they  shot the wrong person, he husband was NOT a drug dealer. However, the masked men will probably get a financial reward, and, if soldiers, a medal for bravery.”

Suicide Gone Crazy

Chelsea Manning used to be a he before he became a she. As a soldier in the Iraq war he came into possession of numerous classified information, and decided to reveal what he had learned to the public. His court martial resulted in a prison sentence and for the past few years she has been at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. Ms.Manning decided to commit suicide,but failed. Unknown to most Americans is the act of attempting suicide is also a court martial offense.

Ms.Manning was punished for her suicide attempt. She has been placed in solitary confinement for 14 days on ground: “she interfered with the orderly running, safety and good order  and discipline of the facility.” Some studies indicate that people who attempt suicide and are placed in solitary confinement stand a 73% probability of succeeding in their suicide while in solitary confinement.

So, who are the nut cases at Fort Leavenworth?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

In the Wild West, the code was for the sheriff not to shoot until the bad guy first reached for his gun.

Trump always has a plan, his plan is to have a plan.

Explain how this vulgar, hating  person is a candidate for president.

Imagine: the fate of our world depends upon a debate!

The horror of Syria is a metaphor to modern life.

Social media encourages words rather than specificity of plans.

Republicans blame Barack Obama for just about all ills in the world.

Imagine: Mitt Romney these days is a great candidate for president.

I would so love to be with the Bush family on Monday night.

Ted Cruz has one goal in life–to get  Power!

For police, the new slogan should be–shoot last.

There is such hate in the souls of Republicans these days.

Ah, these days, Canada looks like a  wonderful nation.

God definitely has taken a vacation from planet Earth.

Culture Of Police

Recent events make clear the importance of rethinking the basic core of police practices. In situation after situation,the scene is always the same. A group of cops are surrounding the “perp,” they confront a man in his late twenties or in middle age, they are shouting at the man, he appears to look somewhat bewildered,and then, one of the cops shoots the man. In other words, police have been trained to shoot first, and never attempt to talk down the suspect without concluding in death. So, what must be changed in police training:

1. The goal is always to ensure that death is the LAST option.

2. Talk can continue, talk enables the suspect an opportunity to save his life.

3. Police have to learn there are OPTIONS other than death.

4. In every tense situation, one does not have to assume the suspect will blast away with a gun.

5. The person being confronted is a SUSPECT, not a person out to kill anyone.

6. The goal at ALL times is to prevent death to anyone.

7. One cannot assume the suspect has a gun.

8. There is always the option of hitting the suspect in a leg.

9. Police must always be CALM.

10. Be proud and feel successful if the suspect is captured alive.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Trump is right -we need to stop and frisk all black and Hispanic folks to keep America safe.

Police should practice day and night to hit a leg.

So, how many Americans will head for Canada if Trump wins?

Strange election, we have a low unemployment rate, and wages are rising for the working class. And,….

Social media is the new voice of hate in our society.

Those who lie the loudest these days are viewed as the voice of reason by many.

OK,it is now clear that a Muslim has been president of the USA for eight years.

The problem is not Donald Trump, the problem are the idiots who support him.

Donald Can End Violence

Finally, finally, Donald Trump has decided to end violence in this nation. After all, this kind, decent man has provided thousands of Great Jobs for African Americans, they can clean rooms in his hotel, they can be a bus boy, they can even wash windows. AND, they get paid the incredible wage of $7.25 an hour! But, when Donald saw  picture of people rioting, and destroying property, he decided it was time to end such behavior. He made clear that once he becomes president, any “attack on the poor will never be accepted in a Trump administration. Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the violent disrupters.”

So, step one in a Trump administration is to have “stop and frisk.” And, of course, the folks to be stopped and frisked are those disruptive black  people. How many white folks do you see being violent in the streets of our nation??
