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

If Israel insists other nations term it a “Jewish state,”does this mean the US is a “Christian state?”

Prior to actually becoming  president, Trump has created conflicts over nuclear weapons, China policy, Philippine policy, Obama, Clinton, health care, etc.. what is the encore–blowing up the world?

At some point Trump supporters will  conclude, –did I really vote for this idiot?

There must be some group in America that is angry because Trump did not denounce it.

One never hears anything from Melania Trump, is she still his wife or has Ivanka taken on that role as well?

Israel is the only nation that if one makes critical remarks about its leaders, the conclusion is that one hates ALL Jews.

Was Putin aware that Russia backed the UN Security Council resolution on Israel settlements, I thought PM Netanyahu was his buddy.

I wonder how folks get one of those fantastic high paying  jobs coming back from China?

 

About The Alleged Climate Change…

I was recently informed by a Trump supporter that I have a negative attitude,and am constantly complaining about alleged  problems such as climate change. This person noted, that while he is not a scientist, arguments about the alleged goal warming are not a topic that every single scientist in the world accepts. I was urged to be more positive, and cease reporting gloomy news. I came across a story by Lars Ostenfeld, a Danish film maker who made a trip to the city of Churchill in northern Canada which is on Hudson Bay.

According to Mr. Ostenfeld, “This area is considered the polar bear capital of the world. Twelve years ago the  place was white, this year it is different. In mid-November, no snow or sea ice, no ice, the land was green and brown, and the temperature was 2C. Usually, there are about a 1,000 polar bears, this year fewer than 500. In the last 30 years the surface temperature of Hudson Bay was -20C, this year it is 3C. The Arctic sea ice has shrunk to its lowest record in years.”

I guess an optimist attitude should be taken. At least there were SOME polar bears around!d

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if there is a single topic that Trump would admit to not knowing about.

The new Trump administration is definitely a –family affair.

I still wonder which Cabinet position is set aside for his 12 year old grandson.

New name for the US Cabinet: The Billionaires Club?

Most Americans voted for the other gal, but the other guy won the election.

One must admit there is always something new from Donald Trump.

I wonder what the Bush family thinks these days about the Republican  party?

President Détente Of Philippines In Action

The people of the Philippines have President Duterte, and we have Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani. Duterte was mayor of the city of  Davao prior to becoming a president. While a mayor he gained a reputation of urging the killing of anyone connected with drugs, users as well as sellers. He gained fame for his efforts to wipe out the drug dealers and users. As he put it: “In Davo, I used got do it personally just to  show the guys(police officers) that I could do it. I was really seeking a confrontation so I could kill. ”

President Détente believes if a leader kills bad guys it sends a signal to police that if they murder someone, just say it was a “bad guy.” At least 3,000  people have been murdered–not killed–murdered. Fortunately, for we Americans, Donald Trump is a coward. The  only thing he can murder is the English language.

Rex Tillerson, Boy Wonder

Each day brings new information regarding the activities of Rex Tillerson, the man Donald Trump would like to conduct foreign policy for the United States. He is the first to admit that his company has negotiated numerous business deals with Russian government companies. If sanctions against Russia could be lifted, then ExxonMobil will gain access to billion of dollars worth of oil in Russia, and the Russian government will obtain billions from investments in ExxonMobil. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has a one Republican majority. Senator Marco Rubio has expressed his reservations about the Exxon CEO.

“I have serious concerns about this nomination. The next Secretary of State must be one who views the world with moral clarity, is free of conflict of interests, and has a clear sense of America’s interests.” That certainly does not appear to be the qualities of the Exxon CEO. Oh, when Exxon purchased Mobil, it ended policies that recognized gay and lesbian marriage and company policy to prevent sexual discrimination.

China Wants Respect

A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson made clear his government does not regard Donald Trump’s out reach to Taiwan as other than an insult. “I want to stress that Taiwan has a bearing  on China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Adhering to the ‘one China’ principle    is the political bedrock for the development  of US-China relations. If it is compromised or disrespected, the steady growth of the bilateral relationship and cooperation in major fields would be out of question.”

He concluded with a comment regarding president-elect, Donald Trump: ‘he is a child ignorant of foreign policy.”

Divided People, Not States

Donald Trump is upset because the TIME magazine article about him referred to the “divided states” which he believes is insulting. Actually, Donald is right, we are not divided states, we are divided PEOPLE. One appointment after another reveals that Trump is only concerned about those with wealth, and has no interest or concern about those who lack decent salaries. His selection for a Secretary of Labor insists that $9 an hour is simply too high and would destroy the American economy.

So, welcome to the Divided People of this nation. American  workers and middle class people have voted for a man who will not give a damn about their needs. I wonder how the Sanders people who insisted that ‘ALL POLITICIANS ARE THE SAME ” now view their choice?

The Trump View Of Cabinet Officers

Donald Trump lost the popular vote in the  past election. His opponent had more than 2,5 million votes, which ordinarily, might have the “winner’ reflect on the fact that his opponent was more popular than him. But, this is the era of Donald Trump, whose supporters insist that one should not take his words, literally, since any fervent supporter knows that when he says that he “will impose a 35% tariff on goods from China,” he really did not mean a tariff. Or, perhaps, he has yet to learn that Congress passes tariffs, not the President.

His selections for the Cabinet are interesting, to say  the least. Trump insisted throughout campaign that he “knew more than the generals,” and once in office, he would bring in people who were not part of the failed military. So, who has he appointed, three generals to serve in the Cabinet. Heck,he even appointed the head of World Wrestling to be in charge of Small Business. Heck, he appointed calm, quiet, Ben Carson to head Urban development. Perhaps, perhaps, there is a reason to this madness. If Trump appoints incompetent people to serve in his Cabinet, cries will emerge to end these Cabinet positions.

In other words, Trump’s goal is to appoint people who will destroy their Cabinet position. I guess this would save some money.

Jews For Anti-Semites

Throughout the history of America, people of the Jewish faith, for the most part, have supported the fight for human justice. Admittedly, during the Civil War, most Jews living in the South, supported the Confederacy. But, from the days of Theodore Roosevelt to Franklin Roosevelt to John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson and Barack Obama, Jews fought the good fight for human rights. Every time Martin Luther King marches, there were rabbis by his side.

Today, we have something termed, the Republican Jewish Coalition which fervently supports the racist, the anti-women, the hate Muslim views of Donald Trump. The latest example of these sick Jews is their support for Steve Bannon. Bannon and his Brietbart news has been supported by every anti-semitic group in this land. The KKK adores him. Bannon has even said, “I don’t want my daughter going to school with Jews.” This certainly expresses the views of someone who opposes anti-semitism.

American Jews have come a long way from the liberalism of Franklin Roosevelt to Donald Trump. I forgot, they want Trump to make America Great Again, let’s become a land in which Jews can not buy  homes in certain areas of get jobs because of their faith.

Sad Confused Young Man

A trial has begun in Charleston, South Carolina which involved a young man, Dylan Roof, who entered a church while people were praying and shot several of them. Mr. Roof is the product of countless stories, dozens of hate filled speeches, and daily disrespect for black Americans. The prosecution charges that Roof carried out an act with a “cold and hateful heart.” In the view of Dylan Roof, HE was the victim,and was merely seeking “racist retribution for perceived acts agains the white race.”

The sadness of this trial is that Dylan Roof actually believes that HE is the victim. Somehow, his mind has rewritten daily life to emerge with a scenario of whites as the subject of prejudice, and blacks as possessing power and wealth. Such is the world in which millions of white Americans live.
