Sheriff Donald Will Soon Arrive

I spent many  years in St. Louis which was the murder capital of the US. Now, I am in Chicago, a town which has had nearly 400 murders within a half year.  Each weekend, there are at least 60 shootings and several dead people. Well, Sheriff Donald Trump has promised that once he becomes president, this nonstop death spiral will end. He notes that he talked with a top Chicago cop, who told him the solution was to “get tough”–whatever that means.

“Violence will end within a week, that’s a promise.” As usual, when Donald Trump makes a “promise” there are words, but never anything specific as to how he will end the weekly carnage of death. Chicago police claim that not one of its top policemen ever spoke with Mr. Trump.  Naturally, his response is that he talked with a cop. So, proceeds the drama of a man who talks and talks, but never produces any specific plans as to how to transform words into deeds.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Have Republicans considered Dick Cheney as their substitute for Trump?

It is Wednesday, Donald is for welcoming Mexican rapists, just for today.

Crime is at its lowest level in history, but Americans insist it is rising!

No one ever went broke selling lies to Americans.

It is Wednesday afternoon, Donald just loves Muslims to death.

Rudy Giuliani is a tired, balding angry man who MUST be in the limelight or he goes wild with fury.

Melania Trump is furious some charge her with being an ‘escort’ for men, but what does  she call her ‘marriage’ to Trump?

Say, whatever happened to Ivanka, no pictures of dad holding her close?

If elected president, Donald Trump would fill his Cabinet with members of his family.

No theologian will ever be able to justify to me using children as suicide bombers.

Medicine And Rights

Several Catholic health care providers have launched a lawsuit agains the federal government because their rights –as Catholics, I assume– have been violated because the EVIL GOVERNMENT insists they treat transgender patients. Somehow, they have reached the conclusion that if transgender patients are  provided medical care, this translates into the EVIL GOVERNMENT forcing them to operate in order to transform a boy into a girl or vice versa.

As I read this story the image of Pope Francis entered my mind. Can anyone, and that anyone includes Catholics, imagine Pope Francis denying medical care to a transgender person? One can imagine an Orthodox Jewish doctor arguing he cannot work at a hospital because they do not serve kosher food.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If stupidity was a crime, requiring deportation, this country finally would get rid of its Republicans.

Donald has “plans,” and Hillary has emails. Which of these two is the more boring story?

I must confess that Ryan Lochte does look sincere. However, he reminds me of the kid who mom found in the cookie jar.

How come Sanders and Trump people always talk about IMPORTS but not a word about EXPORTS?

Ironically, the Clinton model was Donald Trump–make gobs of money rather than the Jimmy Carter model of engaging in service to others–without any thought of pay.

Not a word from Donald about the fantastic performance of our Olympic squad–they certainly made Americans feel Great.

How come Great Britain almost passed the one billion Chinese in medals?

Trump supporters on CNN always refer to him as “Mr. Trump” while Clinton supporters frequently say, “Hillary.”

Trump went to Baton Rouge to hand out packages, for some reason, he just never got the urge to go to Vietnam and hand out bullets.

If being a  coward was a virtue, Donald Tump, the draft dodger during the Vietnam war would be a Saint.

I wonder why Donald Trump never once has cited his German ancestry.

Hillary –Just Shut UP!

These days the two most boring, the two most obnoxious stories about life in modern times is the tale of emails and the words of Ryan Lochte. Mr. Lochte can not cease repeating the word, “exaggerate” which somehow explains away his drunken episode that he and his buddies carried out in a Brazilian gas station. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton just cannot cease talking about her infamous emails. She now claims Colin Powell urged her to have a private server, he denies the story. Back to the merry-go-round of person A says X, while person B says Y.

Advice to Hillary Clinton:

1. Quietly, and loudly say: “I made a terrible mistake in having a private server. To tell the truth, I really did not know why I should have one,  but I went and got one.
2. As of this date, despite the constant clamor about emails, not a single email has emerged that indicated it was something important.

3. I repeat, I made a serious mistake.That is the bad news, the good news is there is no evidence any secret was obtained by foreign sources.

I learned my lesson. Never again any private server.

Filipino Donald Trump

Rodrigo Duterte was elected President of the Philippines and if anyone wants to know what would happen in America if Donald Trump became our president just check out this dude. Rodrigo is out to get drug dealers, and when he says, “get” he means something permanent. Since his election over 500 people who the police claim were drug dealers have been shot to death. There are warrants out for judges, for lawyers, for police, all charged with some drug related crime.

Senator Leila Lima claims the campaign against drug dealers “seems to be executions carried out by law enforcers and other elements like vigilantes. They murder with impunity.” Donald Trump insists he wants to restore Law and Order. The issue is who decides the law, and what is the process  of establishing ORDER.

Red Headed Trump Helps Black Folks

Black Americans can now feel safe because there is a new red headed sheriff in town whose only goal is ensuring that black folks get a good job, live in safety, and learn to vote for him. His message is clear:

1. The African Barack Obama stole the election from John McCain. You know,the loser who got captured in Vietnam.

2. The Great Recession began when Obama became president. Before he took office, every black person in this nation had a good high paying job, and lived in safe neighborhoods. Today, not a single African American can leave their home for fear of getting shot.

3.Under the Obama administration, over 90% of African Americans live in poverty and can not get through the day without Food Stamps. I am going to change things for the better. How? I can not reveal my plan because Crooked Hillary Clinton would steal it!

4. I love black folks, I love the black maids we hire at Trump hotels,and we pay them the incredible salary of $7.25 an hour! We also have thousands, thousands of black dudes working as porters, handling the garbage, and  being bus boys!

So, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?

Elect me and your child is guaranteed a job at any Trump hotel as a maid or porter! I love you ALL.

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.

Trump Wants To Be Lincoln Republican!

Donald Trump has embraced the cause of African Americans, he is now a fervent supporter of Hispanics, and urges all to return to  the ideals and values of Lincoln Republicans. Yes, Donald has embraced Abraham Lincoln. Of course, it is doubtful if Trump has the faintest idea who or what Lincoln was or what were his values and goals. So, Donald, here is a primer on Abraham Lincoln.

1. Lincoln pushed through the Homestead Act which gave away 160 acres of free land to any American who wanted to homestead. In other words, Lincoln gave handouts to deadbeats.

2. The Lincoln government financed construction of the Intercontinental railroad. In other words, the GOVERNMENT built things and helped create jobs, NOT private enterprise.

3. Lincoln pushed through the first income tax. Years later, Republican President Theodore Roosevelt pushed for the Constitutional amendment to create the current income tax.

4. President Lincoln used power of the armed forces to crush white people who wanted to keep blacks in slavery.

5. Abraham Lincoln vigorously opposed the “Know Nothing Party” which wanted laws banning entry of Catholics, and restricting the rights of Catholics. Sort of like Donald’s ban on Muslims?

6.Obviously Lincoln believed in a strong FEDERAL government, and wanted restrictions on State governments.

In other words, Donald, your beliefs are the exact opposite of those of Abraham Lincoln.
