Elie Wiesel Is Dead

There are individuals in our lives who  offer an opportunity to believe in the decency of the human spirit Elie Wiesel survived the Holocaust, he devoted his life fighting for the rights of humans throughout the world. There are those who suffer persecution and  hatred, and learn from that experience to hate and persecute others.  Ironically, Jews on the West Bank in Palestine never learned from the words of Elie Wiesel that those who experience the horror of hate, must never resort to that emotion towards those who are weak.

I once heard Elie Wiesel say in a speech, the wise man poses questions, the ignorant man provides answers. I wonder how those in  Israel fail to heed those wise words by raising questions pertaining to their actions against Palestinians?  How many Israelis are posing questions as to whether there are other options than those presently being followed by their government to attain peace. NO, those supporting Palestinians, are not perfect humans, yes, some have resorted to hate and violence. BUT, the fact there are evil Palestinians only makes it more important to support the mass of Palestinians who seek to have a homeland and live in peace with Israel. That would be the lesson one gains from the life of Elie Wiesel.

What If Republicans Triumph?

There are continual dire predictions that if Donald Trump became president of the United States of America the end of civilization as we know it, would soon arrive. So, let’s exam a Trump presidency:

1. Donald would ask Congress to appropriate $50 billion to build a Great Wall only to discover the bill never made it out of the Appropriations Committee. Donald,  your guys don’t  like spending money.

2. Donald would gather military leaders and propose bombing the shit out of ISIS. They would inform him about air campaigns for over three years aimed at bombing the shit out of ISIS. Trump would announce it was his words that set in motion the bombing three years ago!

3. Donald would get Congress to pass tax reductions only to discover there was not enough money to run the federal government. Donald would propose reductions in military spending which would create months and months of gridlock.

4. Donald would order roundup of 11,000,000 illegal immigrants which would negatively impact the economy. Donald, these people BUY goods made in America and when they depart, so does their money! Oh,and the shit and garbage would pile up because there are not enough folks to shovel it!

5. Oh, Donald, those damn immigrants care for children so what happens when they are gone?

6. Within seven months, the hair of Donald would turn white once he has to actually  run a government.  OH, Donald, you can’t declare America bankrupt!

New Suggestion For UK

I realize there is consternation in England over the entire Brexit controversy and millions are uncertain about their future.Many just woke up to the reality their nation will no longer have access to a 500 million people economy. Within a few years European owned plants in England will move back to Germany or France or Italy to take advantage of a tariff free economy. But, folks in England, there is a way out of this problem. How about:

Become the 51st state of America! Think of it as coming home to a place you once called home. We have a 300 million people economy and laws that also allow access to Canada and many nations in Latin America. We also speak an English language that is sort of like the one you speak. OK, we do not have your English “football’ –we call it soccer– but we do have the American version of football.

The flip side, of course, is having to endure our American dysfunctional political system. It will make you yearn for a House of Lords to make sense of what our Congress does or does not do. Being an American is sure better than being part of a Little England that has lost Scotland and northern Ireland!

Donald Trump On England

The people of England voted by 52% to 48% to separate from England. Donald Trump happened to be in Scotland to open a new golf course so he naturally had to offer his views on the vote. First, he naturally blamed Obama for the vote count since the President urged England to remain. “A lot of people don’t like him.” He went on to predict that “the American people will have a chance come November to declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies.”

Ironically, Donald told the people of Great Britain they were right to leave, and he made these comments in Scotland which voted over 60% to REMAIN. As always, Donald Trump will simplify the most complex issue and reduce it to nonsense. At this point there is no poll indicating Donald Trump will get 50% of the vote.

Trump Seeks Foreign Policy Knowledge

While Democrats were sitting in Congress and making political points vis Periscope, Donald Trump was on a mission to gather new knowledge concerning what was going on in the world. After all, Donald Trump is a man of action, he is a man seeking to gain understanding of the key issues confronting humanity. Where else to go these days of Islamic terrorism and hordes of Hispanics crossing our unguarded borders than to –Scotland! Yes, Scotland. Why Scotland? Or, why not Scotland?

Donald is opening a new golf course and wanted the people of Scotland to know he is bringing new jobs to them when liberals and Socialists only talk about new jobs. He has figured out how to energize the American labor market by getting new jobs for the people of Scotland. Let me explain:

1. Build a new golf course in Scotland.

2. Hire Scots for the new golf course.

3. The new golf course needs golf balls.

4. This now provides new jobs in America for our factories which produce golf balls.

5. This also provides jobs for Americans who work  in factories which make gold clubs.

Once again, while Hillary is shouting and screaming about what she will do, Donald Trump IS doing something–creating high paying jobs for Americans who make golf balls and golf clubs!

Brexit Wins!

The people  of England have spoken and they just shouted to the world that we are ‘IDIOTS.” The vote on whether or not to leave the European Union resulted in a 51% to 48% vote for those seeking what they term to be INDEPENDENCE. Even as votes are still being counted the “victory” has already resulted in a drop of the pound by 11% with a further drop even larger expected. The US stock market is down and the English market is expected to have an enormous drop tomorrow.

But, the bad news will even get worse. The people of Scotland voted 62% to remain versus 38% to leave. Within the coming months, the people of Scotland will demand a new referendum and vote to leave England. We may soon change to the name of the country from “Great” Britain to ‘Little”England. There is a price to pay for allowing emotions to control common sense and the people of England will rue  the day they voted to depart. They allowed the forces of hate to triumph over common sense.
