NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We can expect open anger from Trump in the concluding weeks of this campaign.

There is nothing any Republican can do to deflect the fury of Donald at this moment.

Funny, no discussion in the past few weeks about the GREAT WALL.

I can never figure out how deporting eleven million customers makes economic sense.

Do you ever sit and wonder how we reached this level of political discourse?

Imagine President Donald Trump with his hand on the nuclear device!

In the end, the  problem is not Donald Trump, it  is we Americans!

It’s Not Me, Its You

For one year and a half, Donald Trump has wandered the lives of Americans shouting and waving his arms to make clear he wanted to make America Great Again. Latest reports indicate Donald is not only furious at the media, and Hillary Clinton, but his own staff. They dared to suggest he prepare himself for the next debate. He informed these ignorant fools that Donald Trump does not take one step back, but always moves forward. He had a Great Debate, and for some reason his staff did not see nor experience what he did. They continue insisting that he study issues, they he conduct himself with a calm demeanor.

So, Donald has made clear he is now out for revenge. He will be discussing the love lives and experiences of Bill Clinton. After all, if you lack a good job, what else but this discussion will enable you to get one.For Donald, the issues are Bill Clinton, Jobs, Security, Prosperity, and a Great Wall. He will NOT step back, but only go forward with his attacks on Bill Clinton.

Donald Was Treated Unfairly!

I happend to see a report on the Clinton-Trump debate by a noted independent source,  one Rudy Giuliani. When it comes to honesty, to objectivity, there is no one who can surpass Rudy in being a voice of calm and peace. I was not surprised when Donald Trump echoed the words of Rudy and exposed the liberal plot to destroy an honest man who simply wants to bring peace and prosperity black and white people in this land, oh, and also to his beloved Hispanics.After all, he is the only candidate who actually visited Mexico.

So, what happened to Donald?

1. The moderator named Holt was a secret Democrat out to get him.

2. He was posed unfair questions by this black dude.

3. The mike was fixed in such a manner that it was hard to hear what Donald said.

4. He was denied enough water to drink. A parched voice is not as effective as a well oiled voice.

5. Hillary Clinton took advantage by reading and studying stuff.

6. She lied and lied without the moderator doing anything about it.

7. Hillary Clinton interrupted Donald at least 12 times! And, she got away with it.

8. At one point the audience broke out in laughter.

9. Donald was the symbol of a man who was restrained.

There is no question that Donald won this debate!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump proved that he is Donald Trump in the debate.

Donald simply wishes that Carly Fiorina was his opponent.

Strange, not a single word from Donald about the swarm of illegals pouring over our border.

Stop and Frisk is simply another expression for Stop and Arrest blacks and Hispanics.

At least Rudy Giuliani supports Donald’s ideas for peace and security.

Oh well, at the next debate, Donald will blast Bill Clinton’s sex life, and make America Great Again.

Some have a great penis, Donald’s penis just happens to be in his mouth.

Donald proved that he has no idea about the war in Iraq.

Trump As President

The other night I had a nightmare and in it Donald Trump became president.

Donald arrives in the White House: “Ok, I got great  plans, great plans to  make this nation great again. First, we are going to build a Great Wall, a great Wall, and it will be so high that no one could get over it. So, what’s that, the Wall would go through national parks, it would cause hundreds of people to lose their land, so what, I want to build a Great Wall.

OK, now we handle China. Let’s show those chinks that we mean business.So, from now on we raise tariffs on every fucking nation until they allow our exports into their country without paying tariffs. So, the Chinks are going to raise tariffs on our exports and this will cause the loss of thousands of jobs. We have to be tough.

Now, we have to lower taxes on the top one percent. Right, great.So, what is the problem, if we cut taxes our deficit will grow by another three trillion dollars. Bit deal, once we get people working again at great jobs that pay $12 an hour we will have gobs of money to spend.

Oh, fuck it, just nuke Iran. Oh, fuck it, just nuke Syria and end this fiasco!”

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.

A Republican Discusses Racism

Finally, finally, a Republican has openly stated the real view of Trump supporters about racism in America. Kathy Miller coordinates the Trump campaign in Mahoning County, Ohio. I offer her views without any editorial interruption.

“If you’re black, and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault. You’ve had every opportunity,it was given to you.You’ve had the same schools everybody else went to. You had benefits to go to college that white kids didn’t have. You had all the advantages and didn’t take advantage of it. It’s not our fault,certainly.” Oh, she added: “I don’t think there was any racism until Obama became president.”

Reality, she  spoke openly what most Trump supporters want to express, but fear being termed a racist. And,most certainly, he comments were classic Donald Trump. After all, his children never got any Affirmative Action assistance!

ON Officer Shelby

We now have seen over and over the film of Officer Shelby standing with gun drawn as she gazes toward Mr.Crutcher near his car. Her assumption is that she feared being gun downed by a man who was out of control. My background: I spent four months in Basic Training learning to fire weapons, including a pistol. I was considered a crack shot. Subsequently, I spent two years going to target practice every month for three hours.

Anyone familiar with the pistol knows that it is very  unstable. It is difficult to fire a pistol,the natural reaction is to have your hand jerk, unless you have spent countless hours practicing with firing a pistol. Actually, a trained person holds the pistol with both  hands, and focuses the body upon the object to fire at. Mr.Crutcher was standing with arms in the air, thus he was not near a pistol. Assume, Officer Shelby is correct, he reached into his car to get a weapon.

1. She never had any reason to suspect there was a pistol in the car.

2. If Mr.Crutcher did have a gun in his car, why would it be on the front seat?

3. If he DID have a gun, and swirled around to shoot her, he would have had a split second to aim the gun. Most probably,anyone who swirls around and fires the gun without taking aim, would have a hard time hitting a barn.

4.Nothing prevented Officer Shelby from dropping to her knee, holding her gun with both hands, and aiming at Mr. Crutcher

Reality, Officer Shelby was NOT confronting any threat. She may have IMAGINED a threat, but none existed. The first responsibility of police officers is to protect CIVILIANS.  It is not to protect themselves from alleged threats.

I Do Not Understand Business!

I confess. I spent my life in the world of Education and never became involved  in the business world. I attempt to  listen carefully when people discuss the economy, relations between business and government. Donald Trump insists that his first action upon become president would be to send eleven million illegal immigrants back to Mexico. Of course, he has never spelled out the specifics as to how this  process will unfold. Trump insists that he is a Great Businessman. OK, so would Trump or his supporters please explain the following question.

Eleven million  people constitute an important group of  customers. These people purchase milk and eggs each week, they buy clothes,they buy cars, they buy cell phones and TVs, and God knows how many other items. Each time they  purchase something they also send money to state governments, and when cars are filled up with gas,they send dollars to the Federal government. If they depart, then hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost.After all, if eleven million customers disappear, just think of the thousands of truck drivers who will be fired.

Donald insists that he wants to  make America Great Again. However, his plan would send eleven million customers to Mexico which would boost their economy since they can sell them goods. It seems to me that Trump wants to make Mexico Great Again!

The Election About Nothing

My initial understanding that something called a ‘presidential election’ entered my consciousness in 1940 when I was ten. For the most part, this important election entailed  a conflict between two men–women had yet to become part of this conflict– and they  discussed important issues. The conduct of the Cold War, civil rights, right of people to  have unions, and economic policies that impacted the lives of most Americans.

For the life of me, I have no idea what this election is all about. Donald Trump argues for: Make America Great Again, get rid of Muslims, one way or another, crime is sweeping through the nation, we have to protect policemen from getting killed, and emails and Foundations– not his own. He is going to “wipe out ISIS.” But, as of this date, a month before ballots are cast, Mr. Trump has yet to outline ONE specific action other than: Build A Great Wall.

And yet, millions adore this man who wants to make America Great Again. Great  in which respect? The word, “again”implies the US is NOT a great nation. If not, then what is it? Trump supporters are without question the most ignorant group to ever exist in this nation. But, over and over, I wonder– HOW THE HELL DID WE GET IN THIS SITUATION?
