NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Hatred now lives in the hearts  of too many Americans.

New qualification  for Cabinet position: be a billionaire if the job entails money.

We  once were a nation that believed in separation of the military from civilians, one were.

I am still confused because Donald insisted that generals were incompetent, compared to him, so why select them for the Cabinet?

John Glenn devoted his life to his nation, not to making money.

Trump not only welcomed support from the wealthy, but from the Russian government. First president elected with help from a foreign government.

Rudy Giuliani will have to form a new self help group with Chris Christie. The “I Was Fucked By Trump” folks.

Did Americans know they were electing Ivanka Trump to supervise their lives?

If you did not vote for Clinton, keep quiet about what is now happening in America, it is also YOUR FAULT!

Divided People, Not States

Donald Trump is upset because the TIME magazine article about him referred to the “divided states” which he believes is insulting. Actually, Donald is right, we are not divided states, we are divided PEOPLE. One appointment after another reveals that Trump is only concerned about those with wealth, and has no interest or concern about those who lack decent salaries. His selection for a Secretary of Labor insists that $9 an hour is simply too high and would destroy the American economy.

So, welcome to the Divided People of this nation. American  workers and middle class people have voted for a man who will not give a damn about their needs. I wonder how the Sanders people who insisted that ‘ALL POLITICIANS ARE THE SAME ” now view their choice?

Screwing Americans

I understand the frustrations, the fears, the anger, the uncertainty of so many  Americans,been there, known it. So, they voted for the greatest flim, flam man in American history. Yes, he PROMISED to bring jobs back from China, hell, the only jobs in China are low skilled, low paid, and not what most Americans desire in life. So, you folks voted for the con man, the carnival barker who promises that behind this curtain are such wonders as you have never before seen. And, out comes a bearded lady, rather plump, and after a sigh of wonder, any interest is gone.

Folks you got conned. His Cabinet appointments are just a bunch of men and women whose only thoughts, only concerns are for those who HAVE,  not for those who HAVE NOT. A Secretary of Labor who thinks $7.25 an hour is just about right, and $9 an hour would send businessmen into poverty. Sorry, you  got taken, and, sorry, you got four more years of this bullshit artist at work. Welcome to the songs, the sighs, the tears of life in Trump, America.

Wow! What A Fantastic Secretary of Labor

I admit to making negative comments about those Donald Trump has appointed to Cabinet  positions, but his latest selections makes it clear that I do not grasp the brilliance of our newly elected president. Our new Secretary of Labor will be Andrew Rizder who currently is CEO of Hardee’s. Consider the brilliance of this choice, who else but a business leader would you desire as head of  a Cabinet position that focuses upon the needs of  workers, BUT A BUSINESS CEO?

There is overwhelming evidence that Mr. Rizder only considers the needs of workers.  He opposes raising the minimum wage because how can any business make profit if workers are earning such exorbitant salaries of $8 an hour? For every  dollar that goes to workers, one less goes to the business owner. I thought the Labor Department was designed to protect the rights of business people. Was I wrong? OH, the Hardee guy also opposes extending overtime pay to millions of people.

The Trump View Of Cabinet Officers

Donald Trump lost the popular vote in the  past election. His opponent had more than 2,5 million votes, which ordinarily, might have the “winner’ reflect on the fact that his opponent was more popular than him. But, this is the era of Donald Trump, whose supporters insist that one should not take his words, literally, since any fervent supporter knows that when he says that he “will impose a 35% tariff on goods from China,” he really did not mean a tariff. Or, perhaps, he has yet to learn that Congress passes tariffs, not the President.

His selections for the Cabinet are interesting, to say  the least. Trump insisted throughout campaign that he “knew more than the generals,” and once in office, he would bring in people who were not part of the failed military. So, who has he appointed, three generals to serve in the Cabinet. Heck,he even appointed the head of World Wrestling to be in charge of Small Business. Heck, he appointed calm, quiet, Ben Carson to head Urban development. Perhaps, perhaps, there is a reason to this madness. If Trump appoints incompetent people to serve in his Cabinet, cries will emerge to end these Cabinet positions.

In other words, Trump’s goal is to appoint people who will destroy their Cabinet position. I guess this would save some money.

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I increasingly have respect for Pope Francis, as we say in Yiddish, one heck of a  mensch.

I increasingly wonder if Donald Trump has time to grasp the concept of  being president since he spends his time watching Saturday Night Live.

We now  inhabit an America in which one believes anything stated on social media as  representing the truth.

Say what you will about Barack Obama and mistakes he made, this man is definitely, a mensch!

And, his wife is sure one heck of a mensch, or whatever the female Yiddish is called.

Historically, there was separation of military from civilian control of our government, now we are in the era of Trump militarism.

What was that Donald said about “I know more than the generals?” So, with heck are you  appointing them to key government positions?

 

Disinformation–A Sin?

A factor in the recent victory of Donald Trump was his  continual disinformation regarding issues confronting America. From the fantasy about “hordes of rapists and murderers coming across the border” to the nonsense about an unfortunate incident at Benghazi, Mr. Trump uttered one lie after another. Pope Francis warned the media about consequences of spreading lies. “I think the media have to be very clear, very transparent, and not fall into —no offense intended– the sickness of coprophilia,  that is always wanting to cover scandals, convey nasty things, even if they may be false.”

Sorry, Pope Francis, in doing these things, the reward is -MONEY AND POWER

Sad Confused Young Man

A trial has begun in Charleston, South Carolina which involved a young man, Dylan Roof, who entered a church while people were praying and shot several of them. Mr. Roof is the product of countless stories, dozens of hate filled speeches, and daily disrespect for black Americans. The prosecution charges that Roof carried out an act with a “cold and hateful heart.” In the view of Dylan Roof, HE was the victim,and was merely seeking “racist retribution for perceived acts agains the white race.”

The sadness of this trial is that Dylan Roof actually believes that HE is the victim. Somehow, his mind has rewritten daily life to emerge with a scenario of whites as the subject of prejudice, and blacks as possessing power and wealth. Such is the world in which millions of white Americans live.

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!!”
