Madness Of Mexico

Mexico is the land to the south of the United States. Of course, many years ago states like California or New Mexico or Utah or Texas once were part of Mexico. It is a land in which criminal drug gangs run rampant, defying any police, any military unit, and simply decide who to kill and when to kill. Two years ago about fifty college students were taken off a bus and murdered. Their bodies burned, and still no one knows who or why this outrage occurred. During the past three weeks three priests were murdered.  Father Alfredo Lopez Guile was taken from a church and five bullets pounded into his body. Most probably he gave the wrong sermon about standing up to drug lords.

We Americans are a main cause of the drug horror that consumes Mexico. WE have created this crime monstrosity in which 97% of crimes are not solved. The first step to begin the road to peace in Mexico is to legalize drugs in the United States and end the concept of drug lords. Of course, most probably the drug lords will switch to prostitution of gambling or something else.

Hillary Creams The Schmuck

Well, there was a debate, Donald Trump once again proved that he is the world’s leading schmuck. He rambled, he roamed all over the place, he demonstrated his complete lack of knowledge regarding any aspect of the world,let alone American  society. His face moved from one expression to another, he was defensive, and he showed the world that when it comes to being a leader, he is simply a man who can shout and yell, but lacks the qualities of being a leader.

Hillary was calm, she was focused, she stuck to her message. Hillary discussed how to make America a Great nation. Tax the wealthy, make them pay for improved lives for those in the middle and lower classes. She offered a vision, she spoke about the issues confronting Americans. She looked like a president, he looked like the poor room hustler attempting to talk himself into a winning game. The bottom line is simply that Donald Trump only knows how to frighten people, he only knows how to spew hatred and division. He is simply the poor man’s version of a Hitler, without the Holocaust.

So, hail to Hillary Clinton, keep blasting away at the nut case from New York. He worked his way up by depending upon dad to get him out of debt and failure. Yes,Donald Trump is the man who rose from riches to become rich. Hillary,take him out.

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

Perhaps, cops should be taught not to shoot straight when encountering a black male.

For some reason, the mere sight of a black male in public creates a sense of fear within cops-white or black.

Oh, to be in merry  England when Bobbies did not carry guns.

Donald King, two time murderer spoke in favor of the Trump candidacy.

It is true, the Trump children are definitely children of Donald.

Hillary has to pound away demanding specifics from Trump, of course, he has none.

So, is it difficult to become a Canadian citizen?

I assume ISIS leaders have developed a new prayer which seeks the triumph of Donald Trump.

Whatever happened to Rand Paul?

If Trump wins, Chris Christie gets to head Transportation.

I wish I could have heard the conversation between George H.W.Bush and son, Jeb.

 

I Do Not Understand Business!

I confess. I spent my life in the world of Education and never became involved  in the business world. I attempt to  listen carefully when people discuss the economy, relations between business and government. Donald Trump insists that his first action upon become president would be to send eleven million illegal immigrants back to Mexico. Of course, he has never spelled out the specifics as to how this  process will unfold. Trump insists that he is a Great Businessman. OK, so would Trump or his supporters please explain the following question.

Eleven million  people constitute an important group of  customers. These people purchase milk and eggs each week, they buy clothes,they buy cars, they buy cell phones and TVs, and God knows how many other items. Each time they  purchase something they also send money to state governments, and when cars are filled up with gas,they send dollars to the Federal government. If they depart, then hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost.After all, if eleven million customers disappear, just think of the thousands of truck drivers who will be fired.

Donald insists that he wants to  make America Great Again. However, his plan would send eleven million customers to Mexico which would boost their economy since they can sell them goods. It seems to me that Trump wants to make Mexico Great Again!

The Election About Nothing

My initial understanding that something called a ‘presidential election’ entered my consciousness in 1940 when I was ten. For the most part, this important election entailed  a conflict between two men–women had yet to become part of this conflict– and they  discussed important issues. The conduct of the Cold War, civil rights, right of people to  have unions, and economic policies that impacted the lives of most Americans.

For the life of me, I have no idea what this election is all about. Donald Trump argues for: Make America Great Again, get rid of Muslims, one way or another, crime is sweeping through the nation, we have to protect policemen from getting killed, and emails and Foundations– not his own. He is going to “wipe out ISIS.” But, as of this date, a month before ballots are cast, Mr. Trump has yet to outline ONE specific action other than: Build A Great Wall.

And yet, millions adore this man who wants to make America Great Again. Great  in which respect? The word, “again”implies the US is NOT a great nation. If not, then what is it? Trump supporters are without question the most ignorant group to ever exist in this nation. But, over and over, I wonder– HOW THE HELL DID WE GET IN THIS SITUATION?

Rodrigo Donald Duterte

There is no question that millions of Americans just love a tough talking man of action who tells it like it is. Rodrigo Détente is the new president the Philippines. Since taking office two months ago, his police and soldiers have murdered over one thousand drug dealers.  OK, they  have murdered over one thousand people they CLAIM were drug dealers. Rodrigo is the Donald Trump of his nation.

In case you would like to hear what a REAL political leader says, read the following:

On being stuck in traffic jam during the visit of the Pope: “Pope, son of a whore, go home. Don’t visit any more.”

Singapore executed a Filipino maid: “Fuck you.  You are a garrison pretending to be a state.”

When learning President Obama did no agree with his policies: “You are the son of a whore.”

On complaints about his drug policies: “Fuck you,UN, you can’t even solve the Middle East carnage…shut up all of you.”

On killing of a Filipino journalist: “Just because you’re a journalist,you are not exempted from assassination if you’re a son of a bitch.”

If this guy ran for president of the US, he would begin with twenty million votes!!

Math And Race

As  one who spends hours watching TV shows dealing with crime and gangsters and cops, my mind has been shaped in strange ways by these episodes of life–and death. It is normal to see detectives consulting crime analysts to create a profile of the alleged killer or figuring out where the next murder will occur, with some insights as to the type of person who would commit them. During the past twenty years Chief of Police after Chief of Police has supported the  idea of “broken windows.” This theory states by cracking down on minor offenses, one prevents the growth of major crimes.

Cathy O’Neill has been studying this process, and her conclusion is going along this path of analysis inevitably  results in blacks and Hispanics being depicted as criminals.”I worried about the separation between technical models and real people, and the moral repercussions of that separation.” IN other words, if your math model states that crime will occur in a black neighborhood, the end result is that more black males wind up in jail. Of course, fewer white criminals will be captured.

If all resources are devoted in certain areas of the city, guess who winds up in jail?

Latest Trump Plan

I admit that it gets rather boring hearing one Trump plan after another, but the bright side is this demonstrates that Donald Trump has the qualities to be a great president.For example, no foreign leader will have the faintest idea as to what he said, anymore than what he will do. Talk about placing your opponents in a complex place where they are confused and  uncertain. Frankly, Hillary Clinton has never figured out that Donald Trump actually never had, and never will have any plan.

We now know there is a meaning to the madness of Trump.  For example:

I want to deport ALL illegal immigrants.

Maybe, all I am saying is, Maybe, there might be some flexibility about illegal immigrants.

They have to leave and then come back.

I never said ALL had to leave, I’m a man with a Great Heart.

Is this now clear?

What Next For Hillary Clinton?

It becomes increasingly clear that the Hillary Clinton campaign is in trouble. Just about every day some new story in which the word, emails, or the words, Clinton Foundation, reveals some stupid decision on her part. Latest is that Bill Clinton had the title of “Chancellor” for some private colleges and  got paid $16 million for allowing his name to be used so people could fleece innocent students. Is there anything this man would not do in order to get money? I DO understand the money went to his Foundation, but it is disgraceful to allow the name of  a president to be  used to raise money.

Frankly, I am disgusted, as are millions. The president’s name should never be for sale. After leaving the presidency, Harry Truman refused on ANY occasion to allow ANY business to use his name to make money. Jimmy Carter has spent the post presidency building homes for the poor or working  for peace in the world. He has never trafficked in selling his name for money. What can the Clintons do?

1. Announce the Clinton Foundation will be placed under the control of a new Board of Directors and neither one of them will be on the Board.

2. List the good things being done by the Clinton Foundation and cut all ties.

Trump Of Philippines

The President of the Philippines, one Rodrigo Duterte,has decided that anything Donald Trump can say or do or shout about, he can do better and louder. During his brief few  months as president of the Philippines, he has encouraged the murder –sorry, according to Mr. Duterte, the peaceful elimination of bad drug people– of over 1,600 people. They are guilty because he says they are guilty. Please, don’t talk about trials and evidence because the only ones who speak this way are –drug dealers.

Well, he is now real angry at the president of the United States. Obama raised the killing  of people who never were placed on trial. Duterte  responded with some choice words about Obama–“son of a whore” and  warned, “don’t fuck with me.” I challenge Donald Trump to match this leader when it comes to insults and threats.
