NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Americans quickly forget what the country was in 2009, and no longer is.

Welcome to the era of government by tweets.

One wonders if Donald Trump has actually ever read a book–from cover to cover.

A majority of Americans are not happy with the outcome of this election.

Government of the minority is now the newest American dream.

Michelle Obama has a sense of pride in America that her successor will never possess.

Sanders supporters who did NOT vote for Clinton most probably are in a state of shock over their decision.

 

The Obama Legacy

Donald Trump will shortly become president of the United States of America and   he will initiate his programs to make America Great Again. In 2009 when Barack Obama became president, he inherited an economy which was losing 800,000 jobs each month, and the national debt had risen from $5 Trillion to $11 Trillion,  and the stock market had collapsed. So,what will Donald Trump now inherit?

1. At least 200,000 new jobs created each month.

2. A growth of 3.2% in the GDP.

3. The unemployment rate is now 4.2%, among the lowest in fifteen years.

4. Health care costs have risen at the lowest rate in nearly twenty years.

5. The war in Iraq is now proceeding at a pace to end ISIS control in that part of the world.

6. Employers now confront the issue of not enough people with skills to fill existing jobs.

7. The stock market has risen to new highs.

8. The value of the dollar is now high.

YES, DONALD, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Take away the word, FANTASTIC, and Trump is speechless.

One day, one day, Donald Trump will actually explain how America will become a Great Nation again.

I wonder if anyone could actually make a critical remark about Trump without resulting in emails galore about it?

I await Alec Baldwin being appointed to the Cabinet to end his satirical remarks about the president elect.

I wonder what goes through the mind of Mitt Romney these days, did he escape from a horrible end by never being selected as Secretary of State?

I doubt if Donald understands the word HOPE means an expectation of sanity in the leadership of the nation?

I guess for Michelle Obama the situation today is HOPELESS.

In the old days in the wild west, gunmen checked their guns when they came to town, today, billionaires check their wallets when appointed to a government position.

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.

Republicans Coup In North Carolina

The people of North Carolina elected Roy Cooper as their governor. Unlike the national election, this meant a majority actually would witness their favorite to become the elected leader of the stat. Republicans were furious,and decided that majority rule simply was not the American way of life. The North Carolina legislature called a special session and passed new laws that stripped the incoming governor of many of his powers to govern. The outgoing Republican governor worked with these politicians and new laws were passed.

There is something wrong with the Republican party, its leaders have ceased to believe in the concept of majority rule. America is truly now a divided nation, a majority  believes in the concept of democracy while Republicans seek to create  dictatorship.

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?

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.

So, Who Did Not Become Secretary of State?

It is now clear that Rex Tillerson will be the person nominated by Donald Trump to become the next Secretary of State. But, who will NOT become the Secretary of State?

1. Chris Christie, he was late shining the shoes of Donald Trump, and he brought cold hamburgers.

2. Rudy Giuliani thought he had saved America when Donald Trump knows he was the one who saved this nation from Islamic terrorists.

3. Newt Gingrich suffered from the fact that he had read books and taught courses in American history while a college teacher.

4. Jeb Bush was a Bush, enough said.

5.  Ben Carson would get lost if he wandered into the State Department, and no one would ever know what happened to him.

6.Carly Fiorina speaks as though she knows something, not the best qualification for being a member of his Cabinet.

7. OK, Sarah Palin can see Russia from her kitchen window, but, she has never invested money in any Russian enterprise.

8. Sorry, Ted Cruz your dad tried to kill President Kennedy.

9. Mitt Romney refused to get on his knees and beg forgiveness for the nasty words he said about Trump.

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.

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.
