The Media Just Likes Bullies

If Donald Trump goes on to become president, the American media can take a bow for the manner in which they have fawned over the bully from New York. Mike Pence was on CNN where Erin Burnett “interviewed” him. Pence uttered the ongoing nonsense about how Trump would make America great again and give each and every American a Great Job. He repeated the Republican  mantra about how Donald would generate 25,000,000 new jobs. And, restore a vibrant economy.

Latest figures indicate the past year witnessed the most important economic gains for the middle class and poor people. There was a five percent growth in income for these groups. The CNN reporter at NO time cited these figures, she just allowed Pence to ramble on and on about the faltering economy. NOT once did she raise the issue  of nineteen million jobs created under the Obama administration. If Hillary Clinton is interviewed there are nonstop questions about emails and her health. Trump and his buddies get away with murder from media reporters.

Jimmy Fallon Interviews Hitler

Jimmy Fallon had Donald Trump on his show last night, and he fell over himself in posing fluff type questions such as how healthy he feels or did he ever think he would run for president. The audience shouted their approval as Trump once again spouted nonsense and cliches about, “Make America Great Again.” We wonder how Jimmy would handle an interview with Adolf Hitler.

J: So, Adolf,so wonderful to have you with us tonight, let’s everyone give Adolf a warm welcome. So, tell me, how are things going with Eva Braun and you these days?
A: Jimmy, wonderful, wonderful, just the other day we visited one of our new recreation  camps for Jews, Jimmy, you  should have heard them cheering Eva and me.  Fantastic.

J: I now that some people claim that you do not like Jews, please share with the audience your feelings toward Jews.

A: Jimmy, some of my best friends are Jews, I even sold  my paintings to Jews. All I want for my Jewish friends is plenty  of fresh warm air, and a good shower at the  end  of the day.

J: So, these stories about concentration camps, are they true?

A: Jimmy, if there was an epidemic,wouldn’t you want to concentrate those  effected by the germs so they would not spread their illness to others? I assure you, Jimmy, people get good exercise at the concentration camp, not a single one leaves feeling ill again.

J: Well, thanks, Adolf, wonderful to finally  get at the truth. So folks, give Adolf and the entire Nazi party a great, great hand!!

Syria Forever

I suspect the average American, and the average member of Congress has absolutely no idea how or why the war in Syria began. I am certain that not a single member of Congress could offer an  intelligent explanation as to who is fighting in Syria other than the Syrian government or the Russians. Of course, Donald Trump has a PLAN, it is a secret plan that he will not reveal to US military leaders because they would steal his idea and attempt to boast about their intelligence.

Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry worked out a cease fire with Russian diplomats that has just taken effect. On day one of the cease fie, UN trucks wanted to bring food and other supplies to civilians in Aleppo. At this moment, the Syrian government controls one half of the city while rebels control the rest. So,the UN thought it would be wonderful to provide all  people in Aleppo a few decent meals and medical aid.

Ivanka Wants Nice Questions

Ivanka Trump is the child who dad has indicated he would love to date, but, alas, she is his daughter. But, Ivanka just loves her dad. She was asked to be interviewed by Cosmopolitan magazine. Since Ivanka is a Trump she assumes that when people interview her, at least, they provide her with the questions prior to the session.The interviewer, Prachi Gupta, asked a question as to what her dad said in 2014 about women,noting this illness was a strain for employers. After all, if every woman working in a company became pregnant and demanded a vacation to raise her child, how the hell can a business operate?

Well, Ivanka felt insulted by the question. “I think you have a lot of negatively in your questions. I don’t know how useful it is to spend so much time with you. I have to run.”

Ivanka does have a  point. Why be given questions that you  never gave your approval to be asked?

For example: “What is  your favorite story about your wonderful father?”

Donald Has Plans

As one who  has been following presidential elections for over seventy  years this election is the most confusing as to what the election is all about. I suspect if a typical voter was asked which topic being discussed by candidates has the most impact on their lives,  the only response would be:

1. I use email, and this topic appears to be the most important confronting the American people.

2. Mr. Trump has plans to get 25 million jobs, ensure that each person is at a middle class level, and, in his spare time he will wipe out ISIS. I DO now this candidate has plans.

3. Hillary Clinton is sick all the time so I really don’t know about her plans since the media is most concerned with her health and her emails. I guess that she also has plans.

4.  During the  prior seventy odd years of presidential elections, people insisted that if  someone has a plan they should let us know what it is. This election, all Trump has to do is shout: I got a Plan! and the media reports that he has a  plan.

5. In my youth many people were concerned about the Catholic church and Catholics, I guess these Muslims have taken over that concern.

6. In all honesty, I don’t have the faintest idea as to what the Trump plans actually entail. But, millions do not share my concern. Such is America in the  year 2016.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Americans have no interest in political, economic, or social issues, just emails.

It is now clear, the Clintons only are concerned about themselves.

Just once, I would so  love for Donald Trump to actually discuss an ISSUE other than how great he is.

Americans have lost faith in America.

The economy is beginning to boom, no one wants to discuss this success, only emails.

This is the firs time in my 86 years of life that I do not trust the American people to do the right thing.

HATE runs wild in America.

Hillary-Step Down

In 1796, President George Washington could have served as president as long as he desired. He refused power, he believed it was important for someone else to become president so the concept of a strong leader who always keeps power would never arise in America. He placed the nation before his self interests. It is time for Hillary Clinton to place the interests of the  nation, if not the world, before her intense desire to become president. It is time for Hillary Clinton to announce that due to illness, she will cease running for president and allow Bernie Sanders to become the candidate.

I know she will not take the path to further the interests of her nation. He bumbling, stumbling behavior over the past few months require a NEW face as the candidate for president. For God’s Sake–DEPART and do what is best for America and the World.!

On Healthy Leaders

OK, OK, I know that you are upset about emails and the four dead Americans in Benghazi, but isn’t it time to really focus on THE most important issue of this  presidential campaign– who is healthier, Trump or Clinton? First, a confession about myself. I DID get all the normal childhood disease that kids used to get back in the 1930s. Believe it or not, but I did get a cold, a did get a fever, and my mother once fainted from exhaustion–have you  ever tried cleaning an apartment filled with mice and cockroaches? Frankly, just about every day, she collapsed in fatigue.

The president of the United States from 1933 to 1945 was Franklin D. Roosevelt. He had contracted polio in his twenties and could barely walk. He used steel braces and the arms of his sons on many occasions. This CRIPPLE is now considered by most historians to be among the five greatest presidents. Republicans shout how Ronald Reagan was great–for God’s sake, he had symptoms of Alzheimers! Another Republican hero-Rudy Giuliani was diagnosed with cancer.

There is no example of the poor health of a  president impacting his term of office other than William Harrison who died shortly after being  inaugurated. The nation did not collapse. Frankly, neither Clinton nor Trump could even run the 220 yard dash! Then again,George Bush was healthy, had a sound mind and gave us the war in Iraq!!

Bad News For Republicans

Some very bad economic news was revealed that might upset some member of the Republican party. As Republicans do NOT recall, it was a Republican  president who presided over the collapse of our economy and created the Great Recession. Latest figures indicate the medical US household income rose 5.2%, which is the largest one year gain since 1967. Of course, in 1967. Of course, in 1967, Democrat Lyndon Johnson was president. The unemployment rate is now 5.3% which is much lower than when George Bush left office with an 11% unemployment rate.

Most important in these figures is that for the first time in decades the poorest Americans witnessed the larges percent rise in wages. The percent of Americans in poverty fell from 14.8% to 13.5%. For the first time in memory, the gap between the top 5% of wealthy and the middle class shrank.

Of course, Donald Trump has a PLAN, a great PLAN which will accomplish what already HAS been attained. Vote for Trump if you want another DEPRESSION!

Guns Everywhere

There is definitely one certainty in life, at any moment in the state of Texas someone will be walking into a church, a bar, a movie theater, heck, into a school with guns ready to blast away at bad people. Students at the University of Texas are angry that any person can enter a classroom with loaded guns. Naturally, gun lovers argue what if  a guy walks into the room with guns, we have to be ready to shoot first, and straight. Later on, we can worry as to whether of not the guy we shot was a bad person.

I can not argue with that logic, but I must admit to being disappointed in the NRA. For example:

1. Why can’t I walk into the governor’s mansion armed to the teeth? Is he hiding something?

2. How come I can’t walk into the state legislature with my assault rifle, ready to blast away at those obnoxious Muslim loving liberals??

3. The next time a president visits Texas, we ALL should be allowed to observe his motorcade armed to the teeth. What makes the president so damned important we can’t be armed when he appears?

Think about the issue this way, if we shoot the president, it prevents him from being shot by Muslim terrorists!
