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

The Republican coup in North Carolina exemplifies the death of democracy in this nation.

Hate and anger are now normal in American politics.

Who would doubt that Donald Trump is capable of ruling by decree?

First time in American politics we elected a family rather than a person as our president.

I would love to hear the conversation between Trump and Putin when they finally meet.

How many Americans realized they voted for Putin as our next leader?

God should have provided a third hand to scratch the back.

I wonder how Trump will handle his first crisis as president, promise to make America a Great Nation Again?

We Americans have met the enemy and he is US.

Off To Court With Donald

Prior to the arrival of Donald Trump as a president, the ordinary rule was the president-elect would devote his time and energy to learning about issues confronting the nation from experts. But, this is the era of Donald Trump, who believes the main necessity of a new president is to go to court and deal with law suits. DC Superior Judge Jennifer Di Toro has ordered Donald Trump to appear for a seven hour deposition regarding his law suit against Jose Andres who he claims did not carry out an agreement to build a restaurant in the new Trump hotel in Washington D.C,

Mr. Andres refused to pursue the restaurant because he was furious at Trump attacks on Mexicans. Trump insists that he has more important things to do than be in a  court room. Alas, Judge Jennifer says, you began the law suit, then  you come to court.

NEVER AGAIN MEANS, NEVER AGAIN

Anyone familiar withe the infamous Holocaust knows  what the expression, NEVER AGAIN means. The words originally meant that never again would Jews be subjected to brutality and murder. Over the years the expression has come to mean, NEVER AGAIN would ANY group of people be murdered while the world stood by idly never lifting a hand to halt the slaughter of the innocent. Today in Aleppo, thousands are being murdered, no, not killed, MURDERED. The world media reports scenes of these deaths,and people utter words of sorrow, but no government has taken steps to aid the  people of Aleppo who are being murdered.

The Jerusalem Post has asked the Israel government to offer refuge to some of those fleeing Aleppo. Such action would ensure the expression, NEVER AGAIN, lived on in the 21st century. Of all the nations in the world which MUST offer refuge to the people of Aleppo,it logically is the state of Israel. Unfortunately, with the arrival of Donald Trump,the expression, NEVER AGAIN means, Never Again will wealthy people have to pay taxes on their wealth.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

So, did Donald  want Mitt to get on his knees and apologize?

I still am confused why Ben Carson  did not become Secretary of State, he knew how to separate twins joined at birth, so which problem  could he fail to solve?

I wonder what Rudy Giuliani is shouting about these days?

The Holocaust expression, Never Again, is now, AGAIN.

Trump has made America Great Again by being Silent Again when people are murdered.

Illegal immigrants murder ONE person while native born Americans have murdered 660 here in Chicago, so who is the problem?

Fascinating how Lindsay Graham has become the moral voice of Republicans, he wants the truth about  Russian hacking.

Aleppo

What can one say about Aleppo that already has not been stated? The horror of this event lives on in the minds and hearts of all decent people.  There are two nations that are most responsible for this event–Iran and Russia. And, who will be our next Secretary of State–Rex Tillerson of ExxonMobil,the man who has spent twenty  years sucking up to Vladimir Putin and the thugs who are proud of assisting President Assad in the murder of hundreds of thousands. Those who teach about the Holocaust pose the question–why did the world stand by and allow the murder of six million Jews? We have just stood by and witnessed the murder of hundreds of thousands, including children, and were silent.

Appointing Rex Tillerson as our Secretary of State would simply reward one who, in one way or another, aided those who murdered the innocent. We cannot allow this ally of death to become our spokesperson since he has demonstrated disregard for human rights. If one lies down with murderers, one is a murderer.

Death In The Driveway

Yesterday, we reported on the death of 72 year old Francisco Serna who was shot to death by  police in Kern County, California. Further information has been provided on the shooting.  Mr. Serna suffered from early stages of dementia, and was accustomed to taking walks early in the morning, before most people were awake. A neighbor noticed him standing in her driveway,  and walked over to talk with him. She was upset because Mr. Serna continued to place his hand in his pocket. She thought she saw a gun, and called the police.

It turned out thing in his pocket was a dark colored wooden crucifix.  Police arrived at the scene of the “crime’ with guns drawn. There is no evidence anyone talked with Mr. Serna, no evidence anyone checked with his family, whose house was next door, no evidence of any police negotiator to resolve the situation.  The police blasted away and sent nine bullets into his body.

There is something rotten in the police forces of Kern County.

Another Death, By Police

There is no question the majority of police are hard working decent people, but it has become  apparent–due to cell phones and other equipment that ordinary  people are capturing videos of police out of control.  Mr. Francisco Serna, age 72, is experiencing the early stage of dementia and frequently goes for walks. Two nights ago, he went for a walk in the early  hours of the morning. A neighbor reported there was a strange man with a weapon outside in his driveway.  Police arrived at the scene. They saw a man standing in the driveway. The neighbor insisted the man had a weapon.

There were several police at the scene of action. Not a single one approached the man, they just began to blast away. Nine shots later, Mr. Serna, age 72, was dead. No weapon was ever discovered. Kern County, California now leads the nation in having people shot by police. A county of 900,000 people has witnessed more police killings than the city of New York. Wonder why?

Polish Trumpians

There is increasing evidence that the Trump phenomenon is sweeping the world. In France, Marine Le Pen, heads a political party that wants to make France great again, and right wing anti-Muslim fanatics are gaining ground in Germany, and already  control Hungary. Poland for decades was led by political leaders seeking to create a modern democracy. But, Jaroslaww Kaczynski of the Justice Party wants to make Poland great again, by going backward in time.Since becoming president last year, he has instituted control over public TV and radio stations to ensure they  present the “truth”–as he defines it. Cultural groups such as theater of museums or art galleries only receive funding if they offer traditional pieces reflecting Poland’s cultural heritage. That means, furthering the Catholic church, opposing abortions, and, naturally, hating Muslims.

Ironically, the Justice party hates the European Union even though Poland has received $64 billion during the past five years to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. As always, workers vote to support these right wing parties even though the end result is worse conditions for workers.

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?
