Debate On Economy

The two candidates discussed, or at least made a stab at discussing the state of the American economy. Here they went:

Trump: I want to make this nation Great Again, I want to make certain that no country robs us of what we are due. When I am president, I will make  great deals, fantastic deals that will make this country great again. Put me in a room with the Chinks, I will have them leave the room naked. I am a brilliant negotiator, wonderful,with my brains, this country will see millions and millions of jobs. You folks in Ohio and in Pennsylvania, we will bring back coal mining jobs, we will get our closed factories working again. HOW? I am a great deal maker, a fantastic deal maker, I can out smart any Chinese or Russian or anyone, just turn me loose on the Saudis, they will be sending oil to us and we will not pay a penny! That is my economic  plan.

Hillary Clinton: I want to invest in education, I want to invest in job training, I want to rebuild our infrastructure and create millions of jobs. We need technical training in schools, we need  linkage  between jobs and education. I want to tax the wealthy to pay for these new economic developments. We need technological development to create 21st century jobs.

Justice For Italians And Jews!

I was raised in an era when major gangsters were Italians and Jews. We simply did not have any of these Mexican rapists and murderers swarming across our border. In those days, the Mafia had been created by an alliance of young Italians and their Jewish comrades–Meyer Lanky, Bugsy Siegel and other such wonderful gangsters of the past. Busy created Murder Incorporated which  killed people for a fee. The gang violence of Prohibition did NOT include Mexican or Muslim terrorists. For some reason, in those days when ‘gangsters’ murdered nine people in a  Chicago garage, it was simply, gang wars, not terrorism.

So, how did drugs become an important issue in American history? Watch the Godfather films to find the answer. The Italian Mafia–with its Jewish members, began the serious introduction of drugs into America. It was a business decision,and the Mafia made clear that no drugs would be allowed in Italian neighborhoods. If one added up the number of killings by the Mafia, by gang wars–of course, no Muslims or Hispanics involved– it would range into the thousands. But, for some reason, no one refers to these acts of violence as examples of ‘terrorism.’

Isn’t it about time we Italians and Jews got some credit? How come when we killed, no one termed us, a  terrorist? These days Muslims and Hispanics get all the credit. This is NOT fair. It is about time we Italians and Jews got the credit we deserve. Hell, for every person killed by some Muslim terrorist, we killed dozens!

NOBODY ASKED  ME BUT

Today is Monday, so who now claims Trump groped them?

The universal feeling among Trump supporters is –HATE.

This is the first presidential election in which a candidate argues that America is NOT a great nation.

This is the first presidential election in which one candidate argues it is rigged for his opponent.

Trump supporters argue that Muslims are terrorists, it was a Jewish-Italian alliance that formed the Mafia, sort of a terrorist group.

The most anti-Trump person in America is–DONALD  TRUMP!

Hillary Clinton talked with Wall Street folks, Donald Trump talks with white supremacists folks.

Trump Uses Language Of Hitler

America’s leading organization devoted to the fight against anti-Semitism, the Anti Defamation League, just came out denouncing the language of Donald Trump for his use of words that were the same as used by Nazis in their attacks upon Jews in Germany. Trump referred to Hillary Clinton as meeting with bankers and plotting the overthrow of America. Nazis continually claimed that Jews were bankers who plotted the overthrow,not merely of the German government, but the takeover of the world.

Donald Trump insists that ALL illegal immigrants must be ‘forcibly removed from the United States.’ As late as 1938, the goal of Adolf Hitler was to remove from Germany ALL Jews.  During Stage One of the Holocaust, Hitler did NOT seek the death of German Jews. In his recent biography of Hitler, Volker Ullrich emphasized that as late as 1938 when Hitler uses the expression, “eradicate Jews” he meant their forcible removal from Germany, NOT their death. Donald ?Trump continues to insist his goal is the ‘forcible removal of eleven million illegal Hispanic immigrants.’ That is the language of Adolf Hitler!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

These days spout hatred calmly, and people cheer at your demeanor

Thousands will die in the coming months in Syria while the world ignores it.

Fox News is the anti news source, there is only ONE view on this thing called a news source.

Rudy Giuliani can not speak without shouting.

I await the ignorant Donald Trump speaking calmly.

I wonder if ANY Republican has a single intelligent economic idea to advocate.

I await the preacher insisting Hurricane Matthew is God’s  PUNISHMENT.

Ted Cruz Calls For Trump

We have been given permission to listen as Ted Cruz makes phone calls for Donald Trump.

“Hi,I’m Ted Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Oh, that stuff I said about him during the debates,  heck, I’m  from Texas, you know how we people like to say things.

Hi, I’m Ted Cruz soliciting your vote for Donald Trump. Oh, that stuff about my dad being involved in the killing of John Kennedy, I agree with Donald that I can’t prove he didn’t do it.And, of course this all happened before I  was born.

Hi, I’m Ted  Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Ha, ha, so I said Donald was a liar, and Donald was ignorant. I confess, I have  told some lies in my life, so have you, and I would vote for you!

Hi,I’m Ted Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Oh, that stuff about my wife, OK, so she is not the gorgeous model that Melania is, of course, I can’t say that I am a handsome guy.

Hi, I’m Ted Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Oh, you are some Mexican, I really can not continue  this conversation, after all you  might be one of those drug lords or rapists!”

What If Jesus Returned?

The other night, having nothing else to do, my mind wandered into the topic of what would Jesus think if he suddenly found himself in the 21st century. After all, the little Jewish Rabbi sort of went underground about two thousand years ago. So, here he is in the year, 2016.

1. I wonder what those buildings are with the name of Christianity? I guess they are named after someone called, Christianity. Gee, sounds a lot like my name.

2. Good Lord, these people seem to really enjoy killing one another.

3. Donald Trump, an interesting red headed man who shouts and insults people because of the color of their skin, gee, I am from the Middle East, I guess he thinks a dark skinned man like me is a rapist.

4. They keep on citing my name as they murder people, how did I  get associated with these murderers?

5. I thought I once made clear my feelings toward the wealthy and how hard it would be for them to get into heaven, honest, I didn’t mean you could buy  your way in.

6. How can I explain that I am a human just like them, honest, I did have a human dad!

7. I feel like crying seeing those pictures of children in ancient Syria being killed, makes me long for the good old days of Egyptian rule.

8. Adam and Eve must feel regrets for what they began.

On Statues Of Old White Guys

I came across an article about a move in the city of Barcelona to remove a statue of Christopher Columbus. He is charged with conducting genocide in the Western Hemisphere when his ships hit the New World,not only with new ideas or products,but  with some new diseases and cruelties. It is estimated that when he arrived in 1492 approximately 50,000,000 humans were in the Western Hemisphere. About forty years later, there were about 25,000,000. Most were killed by diseases, and millions were murdered by Spanish and Portuguese conquerors interested in gold and Christianity.

So, what do we do with white folks here in America who supported slavery, men like, Jefferson or Washington or plantation owners who helped begin colleges, or    businessmen engaged in the slave trade? Do we tear down statues of Robert E. Lee, who headed the Confederate army? President Woodrow Wilson was a liberal except to Negroes, he returned segregation in the federal government after Theodore Roosevelt ended it. I would argue the importance of examining the entire record of such people, bigotry being one aspect. After all, Thomas Jefferson is among the great fighters for human dignity. Sorry, Christopher, you sure were not!

Rudy Giuliani On Marriage

Rudy Giuliani, the man who single handedly saved the city of New York during the 9/11 attack is not only an expert in making himself out to be a hero, but he knows more about marriage, divorce, and infidelity than any other politician alive, or who has ever lived. He has now risen to the defense of his fellow fighter for himself by rushing to the defense of Donald Trump. Rudy argues that Donald Trump has every right to blast Bill Clinton for his infidelities while president of the United States. OK,  Donald Trump has been married three times, OK, Donald Trump has committed infidelities.

BUT, when it comes to infidelities, Donald Trump simply cannot match the performance of Rudy Giuliani. He has been married three times, and once informed his then wife of his decision to divorce her at a press conference. When asked if he had committed infidelity, the tough guy, responded: “everybody does.” He went on to point out, I’m a Roman Catholic, and I confess these things to my priest.” Of course, he does not answer the question as to whether his  priest has committed infidelities.

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.
