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.

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

I still await a job for Rudy Giuliani, Chief Shouter of Fear in America?

Dylann Roof, murderer of innocent black people in a church, has an expression of blank on his face in the courtroom. Oh, to know what lurks in his mind?

It would be wonderful to have a Trump Cabinet officer who actually likes what he supervises, instead of seeking to destroy it.

So, NO DIFFERENCE between Clinton and Trump, so said Sanders supporters, then, what now?

I still wonder how football players wind up with so many injuries.

Trump folks still want  ‘donations’ for a billionaire, wonder why?

I wonder what Sanders supporters will tell their grandchildren.

 

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.

Just Words, Do You Believe Them

We offer some words of wisdom for those living in the United States of America.

Cory Lewandowski, Trump adviser: “This is the problem with the media. You guys took everything that Donald Trump said so literally. The American people did not.” What else can one say?

Cory Lewandowski:”Free at last, Free at last, now one can say, Merry Christmas.”

Cory,in my home we say, Happy Hanukah!

Mr. Trump is upset because TIME magazine said on its cover, “the Divided States of America.” Trump:”I’m going to bring them back together again.”

Trump tweeted to Alec Baldwin of SNL: “Not funny, not funny, bad, bad.”

At least we know the new president devotes hours to Saturday Night Live.

Donald Trump: “We won’t Lock Her Up.”

Have you considered locking up anti-semites like your chief adviser, Steve Bannon?

Clark Jones, Union leader of Carrier workers on Trump claim he saved jobs.

“He’s lying his ass off.” Turns out he included among the ‘saved jobs,’ jobs that never were going to Mexico.

Rudy Giuliani on knowing he will not be the new  Secretary of State:

“I single-handedly saved New York City, and, damn it, I will save America!!”

What Definitely Will Occur Next Year

There is some good news about the incoming administration, we can definitely be certain several things will occur at some point next year.

1. Ivanka will sell Queen Elizabeth a new dress, made especially for her by Donald Trump.

2. Jared Kushner will definitely be appointed by Donald to solve the Palestinian-Israel conflict. He is Jewish,and Jews somehow are part of this conflict.

3. General Michael Flynn will uncover a plot by Muslim invaders from the planet, XUL, to take over Earth.

4. Ben Carson will become lost the first week in HUD, until someone is appointed to take him by the hand and show him how to get from one office to another.

5. Then again, someone will be appointed to teach him what HUD does.

6. Rudy Giuliani will throw a temper tantrum when not appointed Secretary  of State. He will roll on the floor shouting curses.

7. No jobs will actually return from China, but  Donald will declare –victor!

8. Hillary Clinton will NOT be locked up.

9. Trump Enterprises will open new hotels in Taiwan and Kazakhstan.

10. Tweets will become the new method of political discourse.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I feel insulted,Trump has never tweeted me. Am I the only American who can make that statement?

These are glory days for the wealthy, another few million going their way.

I wonder if Donald ever met anyone who was not ‘FANTASTIC”

Amazing, the KKK is now to the left of the Trump administration.

I wonder when Trump will privatize the US armed forces.

Let me get this straight, reduce taxes and have more money. A bit confusing, but, what the heck, this is Trump time.

I still wonder if Ivanka is Secretary of State or Pence resigns and she becomes the vice president>

Welcome Wall Street

As you recall, those who adore Donald Trump, he promised to rid Washington D.C. o f Wall  Street billionaires and restore America to the ordinary people of this land. Ah, I so remember Donald blasting Ted Cruz because his wife had worked for Goldman Sachs. Ah, that was then, and now is now. Billionaire Steve Munchin, formerly of Goldman Sachs is now the Secretary  of the Treasury. Wilbur Ross, another billionaire is now the Secretary  of Commerce. So wonderful that Wall Street has been driven from power, and ordinary Americans now run our country.

There is nothing surprising about Trump appointments. He has spent his entire life in the company of those with gobs of money. He literally does not know any ordinary middle class people, other than the doorman at Trump Towers who opens the door and says, “Good morning, sir.” Welcome to the new regime of the wealthy, for the wealthy, and BY the wealthy!

On Recounts

Historically, newly elected presidents devote their time during the fall working on plans for their new presidency. Throughout  the history of presidential elections there have been occasions in which a defeated candidate wanted a review of election results. This usually entails examining voting just to ensure the outcome was accurate. However, Donald Trump is now furious. After devoting this entire campaign complaining, ‘ THE ELECTION IS RIGGED” Mr. Trump is furious if anyone accepts HIS premise.

Each day and each night, the American public are confronted with email after email complaining about Democrats who AGREE WITH HIS PREMISE. One is left wondering how little Donald will react when Congress does not agree with his ideas. We can assume each and every Congressman who opposed his ideas will confront daily emails denouncing their refusal to OBEY the LEADER.

Donald  Trump is the first president who spends his hours in the children’s rooms playing with his email toy.

Donald Is SHOCKED

As Americans know, during the  past election campaign, unlike his angry Democrat opponent, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump conducted a campaign based upon respect for the Constitution and rejected her refusal to agree that if she lost, there would not be a challenge to his victory. This is a fact. How many times did Hillary shout “the election is rigged!” Well, the expected happened, Jill Stein, and the Clinton campaign are asking for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania!

Donald  Trump is absolutely shocked. ‘This is horrifying. This is not the way our democracy works. Been around 240 years. We’ve have free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcome however when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be accepted by everyone. I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our major parties would not accept it.”

Thank God there was ONE candidate who constantly promised to accept the outcome!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

So, Clinton ‘won’ by two million and ‘lost.’ Only in America!

Trump qualifications for serving in Cabinet, know NOTHING.

A ‘doctor’ will head housing and our infrastructure even though he only knows the infrastructure of a human BODY.

I so await a year from now when NO new jobs come back from China.

I assume Sanders supporters must feel happy, their worse nightmare came true!

So, does Ivanka become our new Chief of the Joint Staffs, she does know what a Joint is?

I guess Vladimir Putin smiles knowing he ELECTED the new American president!

 

The White Myth

There are dozens of groups which supported Donald Trump which boast that  he is restoring power to those of the white race. They believe people of darker skins seek to take over power and end the dominance of those who are ‘white.’ The construct of a ‘white race’ simply does not exist anymore than the construct of a ‘blue eyed race.’ In the nineteenth century, the newly arrived Irish were regarded as people who were ‘black’ and not like the Anglo Saxon Protestants who then dominated America. Italians who began arriving late in the nineteenth and then in the twentieth century were told by fellow Catholics, the Irish, they were “dark skinned people’ and not like NOW, the white skinned Irish.

Jews came at the turn of the twentieth century only to be met with hatred and anger for being people of a dark and sinister race. Opponents of these immigrants insisted they could never assimilate within  ‘white society’ because they had a different religion, ate different foods, dressed differently, spoke Yiddish, and simply could never become integrated within ‘white society.’ The story is always the same, new immigrants are DIFFERENT. Ironically, Hispanics were here before the British arrived in the 1600s. And, Spanish regarded themselves as superior to native born peoples.

Being white is always changing. But, today, the former ‘dark skinned Jews and Irish’ now insist they are WHITE!
