Young Republicans For Trump?

A group of young Republicans gathered to watch the recent debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Steven Ridge was not particularly impressed by Donald, but he has strong feelings regarding the life of babies, unborn. “There were 6,000(actually, 4,000) troops killed in Iraq. That’s the number of babies killed in two days. These two points are not in conflict, they are consistent. It means we(Republicans) respect life, and are prepared to give the death penalty to stop people from killing each other.”

In other words, it is OK to impose the death penalty for crimes, that takes aways LIFE, but it is OK to take away the life of bad people.”  Mr.Ridge on Donald Trump: “I completely despise this man, he is a jerk..” Oh, Mr.Ridge will vote for the man he despises in order to get Supreme Court justices to end Roe vs Wade.

Go To Hell, USA!

Rodrigo Duterte is the new president of the Philippines. Since assuming power a few months ago, he has played a role in the murder of at least 1,500 people who were accused of being drug dealers–or even, using drugs. These people were killed by the police with the urging of the president of their nation. Another 1.500 suspects were murdered by local vigilante gangs, again with the urging of Duterte. President Obama condemned these killings only be insulted by President Détente with “you are a son of a whore!  comment.

Now, Détente has gone a step further.”No more American influence. No more military exercises. It’s time to say goodbye. I will not got to America, and your stay in my country is over.” From now on, he is headed to China. That is one country that doesn’t give a damn about how many innocent people he murders!

The War In Iraq

The battle for Mosul in Iraq has been undertaken. An Allied force consisting of troops from the Iraq army, Kurdish fighters for the Peshmerga, Sunni tribal fighters, Iraq Army Special Forces, American Special Forces, and planes from the US and various European nations. At this moment, these troops have captured about 10 villages on the outskirts of Mosul. So,why is Mosul important?

1. It is the last ISIS stronghold in Iraq. One it is captured, ISIS no longer has any bases in Iraq.

2. Victory by the Allied forces would be the first time such a coalition has been able to cooperate and win a battle.

3. Victory in Mosul opens the road for this force to proceed to Syria and play a role in defeating ISIS in that country.

Of course, the next important issues–whether the Iraq government can now cooperate with the minority Sunnis in order to ensure long term peace in Iraq.

Trump On America

The greatest opponent of Donald Trump is Donald Trump. So, let’s hear the man who wants to ensure that Donald Trump never becomes president.

I love America. I love this country. I love the women in this country. I love all Americans except Muslims,Syrians,Mexican rapists and murderers, fat women, women without boobs, lying, cheating Hillary Clinton. How dare that chubby woman get more votes than me. I am DONALD TRUMP, and when anyone meets me, they should refer to MISTER TRUMP, I decide who can call me, Donald. This is NOT a great nation. We have crooks and stupid  people running it. We need a man who went bankrupt a half dozen times to make this nation Great Again. I will wipe out ISIS, I will wipe out all Muslim terrorists. How? I will keep you in suspense. Why should I share my brilliance, I am the most brilliant businessman in America. I build hotels, heck, I don’t even pay people to build these hotels. I am so, so, brilliant. Vote for me. Why? After I am elected, I will explain to you fools how I alone, will make this nation Great Again. So, don’t vote for Crooked Hillary,  vote for ignorant Donald!

Trump On Hillary Clinton

At one point in the Debate, Donald Trump blasted Hillary Clinton,claiming that for thirty years she was in government, and she did nothing. Of course,his assumption is that when she was a US Senator, she alone could pass laws. So, how did Hillary respond:

1. She began her career in the 1970s fighting for the rights of children in the South and became involved in numerous court cases.At this time, Donald was getting  a million dollar loan from dad to work his way up in the world

2. During the 1980s, she was a lawyer, she defended people as a Court appointed lawyer,whose duty was to provide the best defense for person. At this point, Donald was fucking women day and night as he  became bankrupt  and never paid his bills.

3. During the 1990 when her husband was president, she worked on his health care programs. She also spoke on behalf of women rights. At this time, Donald had gone through at least two bankruptcies and stiffed plenty of workers. OH, including undocumented Polish workers.

4.When Hillary Clinton became a U,S. Senator, she fought to get First Responders health care when the Bush administration initially failed to do so. She also worked with John McCain on several bipartisan bills.

Oh, and what was Donald Trump doing these past few years– groping women, having extra marital sex, getting his second divorce, and backing the invasion of Iraq.

Say, What About Student Debt?

Once upon a time during the primary season Bernie Sanders would discuss the  important issue of Student Debt. So far during the Debates there has been one comment from Hillary Clinton who promised to  do something regarding  the over one trillion  student loan debt on the books. Hopefully, tonight someone will get around to actually discussing this minor issue. I understand that it does not compare in importance with the rigged election or some email about Trump rallies.

BUT,there is need to confront this important issue. We offer some possible solutions.

1. Reduce all loan interest to ONE PERCENT.

2. Allow students to renegotiate loans at the lowest possible rate.

3.Offer cancellation of debt in exchange for a two year public service position in our forests, working with senior citizens, education, assisting police, etc..

4. Offer all with student debt the option to repay it under this formula: Two percent of salaries would be used to pay student debt for a lifetime or until the debt is paid off.

These are sensible solutions that would benefit ALL students burdened with debt.

A New War Looming?

It is now fifteen years since American forces invaded an area in the Middle East. Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have resulted in the deaths of over five thousand American troops,and the wounding of over forty thousand. Under leadership of President Bush we plunged into the mess known as the Middle East without any policy,without any goals, we just sent soldiers to fight for something–actually, to this day few who fought have any idea as to the goals of these wars. We fought,we left, we remained, and we still are confused.

American forces have just begun bombing of Houthi forces in Yemen.Why? Ostensibly, because Houthi missiles were fired at a US ship. Of course,the reason for these missiles(none actually hit any US ship) was because American allies–Saudi Arabia and Gulf States–hit a funeral and killed one hundred and wounded four hundred. So,what is the goal of this American attack? What is our foreign policy goal? The only logical outcome is to foster further Houthi attacks and drive this group closer and closer to Iran. In reality, that is the unintended goal of this potential new war!

Angry Americans For Trump

These days there are many angry people in America, most probably, the angriest is Rudy Giuliani. But, central to the anger of Trump supporters is  the belief that America is no longer a Great Nation, and foreign type people are swarming into our beloved land and transforming it into a den of iniquity and evil. Many recall the “good old days” when white males ran the land, and blacks, Hispanics and women knew their place. No blacks were marching in the streets, because if they did, a group of white men dressed in white robes would explain who ran the show, and who was expected to get into the gutter when a white person walked down the street.

They are angry at rise of minority groups to political power. Many also worked in plants producing automobiles or making shirts and pants, or dwelled in our coal mines. Ironically, these same people supported laws that made organizing workers into unions difficult, and the result was that the boss paid low wages and fired at will. They voted for Republican politicians who prevented laws that provided low cost colleges, decent health care, retraining programs  that would enable the displaced coal miner to get a technology job. They voted for Republicans who refused to pass legislation that would create high wage jobs rebuilding our infrastructure.

So, what happened? A high percent of Silicon Valley tech jobs are now filled by people from India,China or Pakistan. The angry people should gaze into a mirror if they want to know how our job situation became as it now is.

General Trump On ISIS

Any intelligent person must admit that Donald Trump is among the Greatest military strategists who has ever lived. Of course, when he had an opportunity to display his military acumen during the Vietnam war, he decided that his skills in combat were better served by fighting the battle of sex in Park Avenue beds. General Trump explained the situation in Syria. “ISIS wants a Hillary Clinton victory. They’ll not only take over that part of the world, they’ll take over this part of the world. That’s why I was so happy to annihilate the enemy.” (Hillary Clinton).

Reality: ISIS has already been driven from 70% of areas in Iraq that were seized. US military estimates that at least 40,000 ISIS soldiers have been killed,  thousands more wounded. Last year ISIS was receiving hundreds of new recruits each week, now, at best, 50 per week. It is estimated that only 15,000 to 25,000 ISIS soldiers are in Mosul, Iraq. The campaign to regain control of Mosul will begin within a few weeks. Once Mosul is captured, the presence of ISIS in Iraq ends.

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

We await the new Donald Trump,the man who will tell it like it is.

Children love to play in mud, Donald Trump, is just a child at heart.

The greatest issue confronting America is emails!

These days the words one speaks must please other people or you runt he risk of being classified as a racist.

Does any American enjoy this election?

I would not be surprised to see Trump grab Hillary’s throat in the next debate to prove his manhood.

I sometimes cry for America, how did we get to this stage as a society?

Once, there were giants in the land, today, just pygmies.
