NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump wants to reach out to blacks, I guess next to ISIS.

Donald, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower refused to lower the 90% top tax rate on the wealthy during the 1950s, now, he WAS a Lincoln Republican!

I await a story from Trump headquarters which proves that Donald was a Green Beret in Vietnam and won the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Do you get the feeling the GREAT WALL will no longer be discussed by Trump?

I have asked my children that under no conditions are they to say two words to me–Ryan Lochte. Who the hell cares what happened at t he service station?

Frankly, I  was not impressed by behavior of Brazilian fans who did too much booing of opponents. Cheering is OK, not booing in the Olympics.

I have sort of a hunch that American performance at the Olympics proves that we STILL are a GREAT NATION.

I still adhere to my promise to myself in 1950 never to get drunk. I believe there are some guys who wished they made the same promise.

What About Exports?

I listen carefully to the speeches of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Both are furious at the loss of “millions of high paying jobs to China.” Their assumption is the reason for decline of certain factory jobs is because business is taking their production to Asia, particularly, the evil China. Just think, we now produce clothes, shoes, assembly of computers and other such “high paying jobs” elsewhere but in America. For some reason, neither Sanders nor Trump ever mention the word, EXPORT.

In June this year, the United States EXPORTED $183 billion in goods to other nations. We IMPORTED, $227 billion from other countries. To simplify, if we ended import of goods from overseas, we might add about 4,000,000 jobs. Of course, since other nations would raise tariffs on our  goods, we might lose 3,000,000 jobs.

Shouting and screaming to rip up  trade deals gets the applause of millions. Unfortunately, if we do as Trump and Sanders urge, there might be millions of jobs lost by Americans. And,many of them would be high paying jobs!

Just once, just once, I would so welcome Donald actually telling us HOW he will attain his ideas.

Picture of five  year old Syrian boy in chair breaks anyone’s heart.

This will be the dirtiest political race in history.

I just can  not grasp how any intelligent person would vote for Trump.

Trump supporters would be a great market for any con man.

Olympic swimmers are unbelievable, or should I say, their story is unbelievable.

I am amazed how many medals the UK  is winning, more that China!

 

What Now For Hillary?

Among the confusing aspects of this election is how poll numbers wander all over the place. Four days ago Hillary was leading by 12 points, yesterday by four points. The reality that she must confront is whether she likes it or not, a large percent of the population is simply not enthusiastic about her campaign. NO, that is not accurate,it is not what she says that bothers her, but her personality, her past behavior, and just plain old trust of her motives for running.

One must add into this mix the reality of how the media has portrayed Hillary. Any false accusation is presented as possibly true. The nonstop reputation of “Benghazi”eventually raised doubts about her despite the reality that no Secretary of State in history has ever been held responsible for an attack on an Embassy. It is about time Hillary fights back. She should continually cite the death of 241 Marines in 1983 who died in Beirut due to a terror attack. Not a single Democrat charged President Reagan with that disaster. How about Hillary shouting day after day, BEIRUT.

It would help Hillary if she actually could give speeches that had some inspiring words. Donald promises everything without mentioning how he would achieve them. Hillary describes how she actually will achieve them. But, she needs speech writers who can transform her ideas into glowing words of hope. Sorry, as of this date, that is not happening.

The circus just came to town and Donald Trump will be the ringmaster of it.

If ignorance of American history was a virtue, then Donald Trump would be a saint in heaven.

Frankly, I would hate to be halted by Brazilian police as our swimmers were the other night.

We Americans love our guns, and our guns love to kill us.

If there were no emails to discuss, what then would Trump discuss?

We Americans certainly are Great Again in the Olympics.

I doubt if Donald Trump could pass the basic immigrant test about American history.

I so wish that Hillary Clinton could speak in terms that lift hearts.

Good lord! Donald actually read from a script!

Someone in the Trump camp should make Donald end those facial expressions, hardly presidential.

I assume Ted Cruz is delighted with the current presidential campaign.

For Republicans, when desiring to frighten Americans, they just shout: LAW AND ORDER!

Reality for the world, as ISIS collapses in the Middle East, it is left with the need to carry out attacks in cities of the Western world.

Is Mike Pence in this election, never hear from him.

I bet John McCain prays for the defeat of Donald Trump.

Brazilian Boo Babies

Each four years, I take some time, and spend hours watching the Olympics. I have spent my entire 85 years of life actively engaged in sports. Sports teaches one basic lesson– you win some, and you lose some. So, if you lose, check what you are doing, make changes and move on to victory. But, under no conditions do you blame cheating or describe your opponents as lousy people.

Alas, Brazilian fans just have not got the message. The Olympic games are turning out wonderful, but some fans are not. Olympic spokesperson, Marco Andrada explained concerns of the Olympic organizers.  “We plan to intensify our  dialogue with Brazilians fans to make sure they behave as fans in a proper and elegant manner. We are paying  very much attention to the fact that booing is not the right thing to do. ”

Brazil is doing OK, so fans, just relax.

Videos Galore-Should We?

I am 85 years old and do not own any form of camera. No, I do not wander the  streets taking photos of people getting shot,or of people, getting assaulted. Each time seeing a photo of a woman getting assaulted the initial thought in my mind is –“what the fuck are you doing taking a photo, why the hell don’t you put down your stupid camera and go help the person!”

We have become a nation of observers. We spend each day seeking to find a scene of human behavior in which some individual is being mistreated, and our first thought is how to convey this image to all my “friends.” I find this behavior grotesque, it is demeaning to the humans spirit. Our first, and only, obligation to a person in need is to come to their aid. The act of taking a photo  injures the rights and dignity of people. Particularly, when someone commits an act that is a mistake, why must it be displayed for the world to witness?

I find taking a photo of someone being assaulted by the police is different. IN that case, one human is being hurt, the other human is committing an act of atrocity,we have the moral right to expose such cruelty to the world.

I await Donald Trump raising the issue of how the Democratic Party and President Roosevelt forced Japan to attack America.

Let me ge this straight, Barack Obama was born in the 1960s, and we had the Vietnam war in the 1960s, now you know who caused the Vietnam war!

There are currently over 50 law suits against Trump in Florida by merchants claiming Donald cheated them, so who is the “CROOK?”

I am certain if we ever get to read Trump’s tax return we will learn that he  paid no  more than 5% in taxes.

After the fantastic display of American greatness at the Olympics, I await Donald promising that if elected he will make “AMERICA GREAT AGAIN IN THE OLYMPICS”

Then again, since we no longer are a “Great Nation,” how the hell did our athletes demonstrate their greatness?

How come Crooked Hillary Clinton did not join the Armed forces during the Vietnam war?

Donald wants to punch someone out, but, obviously, he never had the  urge to punch out Communist Viet Cong guerrillas in Vietnam.

While the brave John McCain was enduring endless torture in a Viet Cong prison, Donald was enduring the torture of being exhausted fucking models.

 

Donald Concerned About An Honest Election

Donald Trump is concerned about the need  for a fair and honest election this year. Right now his main concern is that he will get cheated in the state of Pennsylvania. “Because if we get cheated out of this election, if we keg cheated out of a win in  Pennsylvania, which is a vital state, especially when I know what is  happening here, folks,  we have to call up law enforcement,  and we have to call the sheriffs,  and the police…”

The latest polls indicate that Hillary Clinton has a nine  point lead in Pennsylvania. Naturally, I have been informed by Trump officials, that this so called lead was created by crooked CNN polls and crooked national polls, and most probably if we could actually read ALL Clinton emails, the truth about how this crook is trying to steal the election  from Trump would finally emerge.

Donald, 31 of 50 Governors in the US are Republicans. I assume, since you have no knowledge of American history, no one has told you that States conduct the national election, not the Federal government. If anyone is going to steal this election, it is the Republican party!
