As long as the war in Iraq continues, we shall present voices of American soldiers and discuss issues of concern to those compelled to risk their lives.

Is Donald Trump A War Hero?

Once Donald Trump becomes president, he finally will be able to recognize the outstanding, the fantastic accomplishments of one, Donald Trump on the battlefields of the world. Mr. Trump has repeatedly noted those suffering from PTSD are ‘weak,” just can’t handle stress, and not really worthy of our respect. Of course, Mr. Trump has refused to publicize his own terrific war record,unmatched by any prior president. Mr. Trump received FIVE DRAFT DEFERMENTS DURING THE VIETNAM WAR! OK, some may scoff at this record, but, consider the dangers that Trump faced while cowardly American soldiers were fighting in Vietnam.

1. Donald Trump could have gotten VD from any of the dozens of women he fucked. How many soldiers faced such fears?

2. It is one thing to get tired walking through jungles, but, what about night after night having to fuck one woman after another without any rest!

3. Do soldiers understand that Donald Trump had to return time after time to take physical after physical in order to remain at home fighting the TIT battles of Park Avenue bedrooms!

This blog believes that Donald Trump deserves the Congressional Medal Of Honor!!

White Man Mad

Any story in the news which entails a problem, a crime, an act of murder that somehow was the result of actions by a black, an Hispanic or a Muslim usually  is preceded with MUSLIM  or HISPANIC or BLACK man, woman or person, committed the act. Gary Eugene Holmes, age 33, was behind a woman when their cars hit a Stop Sign. He immediately honked his horn, then began to shout insults and then stepped out of his car and blasted away with his revolver. Gary was MAD, he was FURIOUS that some woman did not move her car more swiftly.

So, this headline will NOT appear in the American media: WHITE TERRORIST murders small boy who was sitting in the back of his mom’s car at a Stop Sign. Mr. Holmes was captured by armed police.

Donald Trump-Islamic Hero

Donald Trump has gone to great pains  making clear to one and all,  that his words before the invasion of Iraq when he favored it were misunderstood because he really opposed the war in Iraq. Raghhad Saddam Hussein, the daughter of Saddam Hussein, has come out with words of praise for Donald Trump, the hero of Saddam’s followers. “But, from what is apparent, this man has a high sense of political sensibility, that is very different than the one who preceded him. He exposed the mistakes of others, speaks only in terms of Iraq, when means he is very aware of the mistakes  made in Iraq, and what happened to my father.”

Finally, finally, we know the Middle East foreign policy of Donald Trump. He wants to restore the  Saddam Hussein  family to  power and bring peace and prosperity to the region.

Obama Ends List

The one certainty in modern life is that at some point each one of us will discover that our name is on some list. A colleague, who was born in Lebanon was interviewed by FBI agents regarding his  membership in a Lebanon group. The organization had been formed by Lebanese born Americans to help  restore monuments that had been damaged, My friend was on the ‘dangerous Lebanon Muslim” list even though he was Christian. In the aftermath of 9/11 Homeland Security created a surveillance list of suspected Muslim potential terrorists.

The National SecurityEntry-List Registration list has been around for years. It contains the names of 80,000 people. They have been finger-printed, had their pictures taken, and periodically compelled to be questioned. As of this date the following is the number of actual crimes committed by these people–ZERO. Much to the chagrin of Donald Trump, President Obama has ordered the list to be destroyed!

Watch Your Tongue!

Adam Saleh is a 23 year old Youtube star with thousands of followers. He was on a Delta flight that was ready to take off when he decided to call his mom, it was a promise he had made to her that when he traveled by plane, she would get a reassuring call just before the plane departed. He began speaking in Arabic. “The reason is that mom is 66 years old and she  only  speaks Arabic.” For some reason this approach to being nice to mom did not register with some passengers.

A woman turned to him and said: “Oh, my, you need to speak English, I’m feeling very uncomfortable.” A man stood up and shouted: “Chuck them (Adam and his friends) off the fucking plane.” Within moments, Adam and his friends were escorted off the plane. I assume the plane landed safely. I am so glad the woman finally  felt “comfortable.”

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.

Who Next To Destroy US Government

One must admit that Donald Trump does have a unique approach in deciding who should be in his Cabinet. Historically, presidents selected individuals who have  SOME knowledge of the Department they would head, but, leave in to Donald to create a new approach to who should lead a government department.

Ben Carson, former surgeon, now heads Housing and Development, about which his only experience is that he once lived in public housing.

Andrew Ruzder, a CEO of Hardee;s now heads the Labor Department, and insists that more raises in minimum wages  would destroy the economy.

Back in 2012 when Rick Perry sought the nomination for president, he made a famous speech that dealt with Cabinet positions. “It’s three agencies of government when I get there are gone: Commerce, Education, and the um, what’s the name of the third, the third. Let’s see. I can’t think, third, I can’t,  sorry.” Well, Rick, now you can think of it because you are the new Secretary of Energy. So, will you get yourself out of a job?

Oh, and Scott Pruit, the head of the EPA does not believe in climate change.

What next–Secretary of the Interior goes to a house designer, isn’t that what the Interior Department handles?

I’m A Smart Person

After one has become president or even after winning the election, the incoming president is provided daily briefings from experts in various government departments. The goal is to enable a president to have awareness of issues that might become critical to the goals of America. These briefings have nothing to do with being liberal or conservative, they are information exchanges between experts and a novice president. Donald Trump has indicated that he does not need such briefings for the following reasons”

1. “I’m  a smart person.”

2. “I’ll get it when I need it.”

3.  “I don’t have to be told the same things in  the same words every single day for the next eight years.”

Look, Mr. Trump has already explained to the American people, “I know more than the generals” so why listen to military officers? Perhaps, just  perhaps, it might make more sense if Donald Trump GAVE BRIEFINGS  to those in government positions? No question, he will never use the same words day after day.

Or, he could ask Ivanka to handle the briefings.

Un Pleasant Facts For Trump

We inhabit an age in which most Americans rely upon lies, false stories and information that has no connection to reality. So, how about some FACTS:

1. US merchandise trade deficit % of GDP has fallen from: half of one percent in 1945 to one percent when George Bush became president in 2001 to 2% when George Bush  left office, AND it remained at 2% during the entire Obama term of office. Question: why no questions about  trade deficits while Bush was president?

2. In 2015, General Motors in China sold 372,000 cars in November while selling 253,000 cars in America.

3. Boeing has orders for planes in China over the next twenty years that constitute $500 BILLION.

4. China accounted for 60% of America’s soybean exports between 2003-2015.

5. Iran just signed an  agreement to purchase billions of dollars worth of Boeing airplanes.

6. The Peterson Institute estimates a tariff war with Mexico and China would result in the loss of 4.8 million American jobs.

7. At least one third of  parts going into “American” produced cars come from Mexico. Raise tariffs on goods from Mexico means raising prices on US made cars.

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

Finally, a president who knows more than the entire Intelligence community.

I wonder how Rudy Giuliani feels about being out smarted by Ben Carson, who  got the Cabinet position.

Then again, what happened to Ted Cruz, stuck in the US Senate where everyone hates him!

Snow always awakens the child in me, who so loved to make snowballs.

Whatever happened to the Trump policy to get rid of the Establishment?

Strange how  the deaths of children in Syria just becomes a norm for us.

Then again, here in Chicago, murder is now the new norm, 670 killed so far this year.
