There Ain’t No Jobs Coming Back!

The American public was sold a snow job, not only by Donald Trump, but also by Bernie Sanders. Both promised, if elected, to ‘bring back jobs from China-or wherever.’ Both assured Americans the problem was “bad trade deals’ that had traded away millions and millions of ‘high paying jobs.’ This was ‘angry talk,’ words that angered men and women who had witnessed their good jobs apparently disappear by evil Chinese or Asian workers who earned a few pennies an hour, resulting in jobs leaving America and  headed west toward Asia.

Well, here are the FACTS. Since 2000 about five million factory have disappeared in America. BUT, despite five million fewer workers, production has risen 15%. Since 1997, production has grown by nearly 50% despite  fewer Americans working in factories. Ladies and gentlemen, the jobs did not go to Asia, the jobs are now being done RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA BY— TECHNOLOGY! Either Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders lied, or both simply lacked understanding of the modern economy– each year technology assumes more and more roles in production.

Election That Was –Or Was Not

There is no doubt that at this moment, millions, yes, millions of Americans who were not ‘enthused’ about the nomination of Hillary Clinton are experiencing some first, or second, or third thoughts. THEY now stand accused of transferring power to a loud mouthed ignorant men whose only thought is HIMSELF. Latest results are the margin for ‘victory’ in three states is very, very, narrow:

Wisconsin –0.7%

Michigan –0.3%

Pennsylvania: 1.2%

Just imagine if a hundred thousand of Bernie Sanders supporters had voted for Hillary Clinton in those three states, then at this moment, America would be greeting its first woman president! The central question is whether Trump actually won those three states. We KNOW that he now trails Hillary Clinton by 2,000,000 votes!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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.

It’s Getting Warmer!

There is the real world and there is the world of those insisting the world is OK, and no climate changes are happening. US scientists are now claiming the Arctic is experiencing a hot sea surface and air temperatures which are halting ice from forming. This would lead to record lows of sea. According to Jennifer Francis of Rutgers University, “it’s being about 20C water over most of the Arctic ocean.” So, what does this mean? Scientists, not the type of people one will find at any  Trump rally or meeting to discuss the world, insist the climate IS changing and the result will be dramatic alterations in temperature, rising sea levels, and devastation for those living near the ocean.

Unfortunately, this is NOT a liberal or a conservative issue, it deals with the fate of our planet. The election of Donald Trump as president not only impacts the lives of Muslims, of Hispanics, of blacks, BUT the lives of our grandchildren yet to be born. WE, will live in infamy a century from now when the impact of our stupidity in electing Trump results in dramatic changes in climate, in  how people can live, and in the air they must breathe.

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!

Donald Trump On Democracy

Donald Trump summoned leading executives of the media to a private session with the new LEADER of our nation. ‘Look, you people, I am now the Leader of this nation. As the Leader of the American people, I expect respect, yes, respect for someone who is not only the Leader, but the wisest, the most intelligent person in this nation, as well as the world. So, from now on, you people report what I say, and that means, no interpretation of what I say. Who ever gave you  people the idea the media had a right to oppose the Leader? The entire concept of a ‘free press’ simply means you guys are free to report what I say, I will NOT charge any reporter for informing the people what I say. You are all free to state the truth of what I say.

Now, some people claim that certain white groups are not exactly kosher. I mean, they support me, and sometimes, express some words that get misinterpreted.OK, so they say Jews are clever with money,  big deal, they are, just ask my son-in-law, the Jew boy who married Ivanka, very clever, very good with the dollar bill. I love all people, those of the right,  those of the left, as long as we  all agree the President should not be insulted. Why be president if anyone can disagree when you speak the truth. Isn’t that in the Constitution? To be honest, one of these days I will get around to reading the thing, tweets I can read, but long documents that go on and on for pages, well…… Anyway, get the hell out of here and get your media people to begin respecting me, to honoring what I say, and to ALWAYS agree, that I am the LEADER who is never wrong!!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I hear that Putin has a bid in for the White House, if the offer is good,  Donald will sell it to make America -Great Again!

Trump’s grandson goes to school, so I guess he will be the next Secretary of Education, after all, who has better qualifications?

Is there a position open for the GREATEST SHOUTER? Giuliani gets it hands down.

ISIS is happy now that their best recruiter is president of the United States.

Pray that Donald does not get insulted by a nation with an atomic bomb, just pray!

We now inhabit the Divided States of America.

I gather Canada can not handle requests for asylum.

Welcome To Selling America

The American people have just elected a president who is a fantastic businessman. He allowed his daughter, Ivanka, who is a key person in Trump enterprises to sit in on a meeting with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe. Even as that meeting took place, there were meetings  being held at the Trump hotel in Washington D.C. Dozens of foreign diplomats met with members of the Trump team to make America Great Again. Just think, diplomats from FOREIGN NATIONS are engaged in discussions with American political leaders because they want to make America, Great Again!

We are now witnessing the selling of America to the highest bidder. Trump was furious because Hillary Clinton gave speeches to Wall Street folks. Well, folks, welcome to the Trump approach– just sell America to the HIGHEST BIDDER, whether from America or any other nation. America is up for sale, the highest offer gains the contract!
