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

I still await a job for Rudy Giuliani, Chief Shouter of Fear in America?

Dylann Roof, murderer of innocent black people in a church, has an expression of blank on his face in the courtroom. Oh, to know what lurks in his mind?

It would be wonderful to have a Trump Cabinet officer who actually likes what he supervises, instead of seeking to destroy it.

So, NO DIFFERENCE between Clinton and Trump, so said Sanders supporters, then, what now?

I still wonder how football players wind up with so many injuries.

Trump folks still want  ‘donations’ for a billionaire, wonder why?

I wonder what Sanders supporters will tell their grandchildren.

 

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Funny, no one yells and screams these days about the FOUR men killed at Benghazi.

I assume someone will show Ben Carson where the men’s toilets are in HUD.

Exactly what are the qualifications of Ivanka Trump for dealing with issues other than dad says she is a “good piece of ass?”

Some days I  ponder about creating some weird conspiracy event.

Ah, Pearl Harbor day, founder of Conspiracy Theories.

Is there anyone who has NOT been contacted by Trump about nothing?

Imagine if Hillary Clinton had challenged Trump about his crazy economic ideas!

Megyn Kelly Can’t Take It

Ad you recall or do not recall, Fox News commentator Megyn Kelly became among the initial women blasted by Donald Trump during the early days of his great campaign to make America Great Again. As a Fox commentator it was expected that Ms. Kelly would mouth the official line that any and all Republicans were better choices than any Democrat Socialists, Muslim, terrorist lovers. She challenged Trump and was blasted by Republican haters for her infamy.

Megyn Kelly is now upset with Dan Scavino, a Trump advisor, who she charges encourages hate and violence on the Internet. She claims he stirs “nastiness and threats’ in order to encourage those who hate to even go to the extent of violence.  Oh, Ms. Kelly these days is under the protection of armed guards. Welcome to the world of Donald  Trump as president.

Don’t Cover Your Face

These days there are great issues confronting people in western nations. Some are concerned about loss of factory jobs, some are concerned about climate change, some are concerned about  human rights, some are concerned about the growing gap  between the very wealthy vs the middle and working class. But, for many THE GREAT ISSUE OF MODERN LIFE IS–SHOULD WOMEN BE ALLOWED TO COVER THEIR FACES WITH A VEIL!

Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany has been blasted for allowing Muslim immigrants to enter Germany.  She decided to demonstrate in some manner that she could be tough on Muslims.  She told the German people: “the full veil is not appropriate here, it must be forbidden wherever that is legally possible.  It does not belong to us(Germans). Interior Minister Thomas de Maizee: “It does not fit into our society, we demand you show the face.”

I guess this issue is very important. France had many more Muslims than Germany.  A recent study indicated that 2,500 Muslim women in  France wore the full face veil. No further comment.
