Watch Your Tongue!

Adam Saleh is a 23 year old Youtube star with thousands of followers. He was on a Delta flight that was ready to take off when he decided to call his mom, it was a promise he had made to her that when he traveled by plane, she would get a reassuring call just before the plane departed. He began speaking in Arabic. “The reason is that mom is 66 years old and she  only  speaks Arabic.” For some reason this approach to being nice to mom did not register with some passengers.

A woman turned to him and said: “Oh, my, you need to speak English, I’m feeling very uncomfortable.” A man stood up and shouted: “Chuck them (Adam and his friends) off the fucking plane.” Within moments, Adam and his friends were escorted off the plane. I assume the plane landed safely. I am so glad the woman finally  felt “comfortable.”

Let’s Have A Jihad

There is one thing to say about Donald Trump, he certainly does not enjoy pursuing similar policies of prior American presidents, particularly in the Middle East. Donald announced that David Friedman, a bankruptcy lawyer with NO diplomatic experience would be the  US Ambassador to Israel. Reports indicate that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner would assist the bankruptcy lawyer in furthering the cause of peace between Palestinians and Israel. OH, Mr. Friedman has already made clear that he OPPOSES  the creation of the state of Palestine.

Trump just announced that the American Embassy which is now located in Tel Aviv will be moved to Jerusalem. Palestinians already have made clear that such a move would result in violence,and the growth of extremist followers. But, Trump wants Palestinians to know that he is a FANTASTIC negotiator whose ideas will finally bring peace to Israel and her neighbors.

Hordes Of Hispanic Murderers

It was just a few months or weeks ago that Donald Trump was warning America about the hordes of Mexican rapists, murderers, gangsters and God knows what other crime that soon would be showing up in YOUR  neighborhood. For some strange reason, I have not heard much about these criminals during the past month. I assume that either they have taken a pledge of being nice or they simply disappeared over the Rio Grande river. I guess Donald is more interested in defeating China, North Korea, or ISIS these days.

Anyway, we now have some statistics, and I do understand the word, ‘statistics’ just does not register very well among Trump supporters.A study by Ewing, Martinez, and Rambaut reveals the following facts.Roughly 1.6% of immigrants from ages 18-39 are incarcerated compared to 3.3% of native born Americans. In 2010, 10.7% of native born men  aged 18-39 without a high school  degree were incarcerated compared to 2.8% of Mexican immigrants.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I can not even imagine what it would be like to be in Aleppo, can you?

We used to warn people not to be quick on the trigger, today, not not on the tweet.

I wonder if the entire Trump family will be sworn in next month?

Raise your hand if you knew you were voting for Ivanka Trump as your  president.

Terrorists now  use trucks, what next, toy guns?

Ten investigations of four dead at Benghazi, not one for cyber attacks!

I increasingly  wonder if any Republican has ever read the US Constitution?

Oh well, now is the time to worry about real important issues, who will wind up in the Super Bowl?

I wonder if in my lifetime, we will witness a Socialist as our president?

Today, stock market goes up, ah, but tomorrow, it will go DOWN–eventually!

 

Boom Times Ahead?

There are millions of Americans today who are smiling with joy now that Donald Trump will become our president within  a month. The Dow Jones will within a few days hit the 20,000 mark, which would  mark an historic record. Since the day that Trump won the vote,the Dow Jones has risen from 18,000 to the new record, 20,000. Why? There are no economic indicators that our economy is going to enjoy  even greater prosperity  than under the Obama administration. After all, when he became president in 2009, the unemployment rate was 11% and the nation was losing 800,000  jobs EACH MONTH. Today, the unemployment rate is 4.6% and we are gaining 200,000 new jobs each month.

So, why the optimism?

1. Trump tax cuts would give millionaires millions of dollars.

2. The end of the inheritance tax would save the Trump family– if dad dies,– about $3 Billion  in taxes.

3. The average middle class person would get about $400 while the average millionaire would get hundreds of thousands each year.

Just remember,whatever goes up, EVENTUALLY, GOES DOWN.

About The Alleged Climate Change…

I was recently informed by a Trump supporter that I have a negative attitude,and am constantly complaining about alleged  problems such as climate change. This person noted, that while he is not a scientist, arguments about the alleged goal warming are not a topic that every single scientist in the world accepts. I was urged to be more positive, and cease reporting gloomy news. I came across a story by Lars Ostenfeld, a Danish film maker who made a trip to the city of Churchill in northern Canada which is on Hudson Bay.

According to Mr. Ostenfeld, “This area is considered the polar bear capital of the world. Twelve years ago the  place was white, this year it is different. In mid-November, no snow or sea ice, no ice, the land was green and brown, and the temperature was 2C. Usually, there are about a 1,000 polar bears, this year fewer than 500. In the last 30 years the surface temperature of Hudson Bay was -20C, this year it is 3C. The Arctic sea ice has shrunk to its lowest record in years.”

I guess an optimist attitude should be taken. At least there were SOME polar bears around!d

People Are Saying—

I am not claiming the  following story is true, but I have heard, people are saying, just about everyone I know has been saying, and, therefore I believe it is my obligation to raise some potentially embarrassing news concerning the president-elect. During the campaign he continually refused to reveal any information pertaining to his income tax returns. He was repeatedly urged to come forth with information, but the red headed guy just would not budge.

However, I have heard, I have been told, people are talking about his failure to show the American people his birth certificate! As of this date, no American has the slightest idea as to what is the name on this birth certificate. Is it Donald Hussein Trump? What are the names of his mother and father? Is there any truth to the claim that his mother’s name is: Ama al Mustafa? I don’t know. But, neither do the American people. Why not?

However, I have been told by  some people the real reason we have not seen his birth certificate is that the name on it is: DONNA!! Note the small hands, note how he waves them  as though a woman. I am NOT saying that he or she or whoever, is a woman. But, many people, hundreds, no, thousands are asking about the name on his –or her–birth certificate!!

There He Goes Again!

At this moment in time, Donald Trump is the president-elect, but he does not have any legal authority to speak for the American people other than as a private citizen. He angered the Chinese government with inane comments about how he would not respect American foreign policy that recognizes the current relationship between Taiwan and China. The end result is anger on the part of the Chinese government, and seizure of a drone in the sea. Yesterday, Trump issued a statement denouncing policies of the German government, and, literally accusing Chancellor Merkel of failure in leadership of the nation.

His tweet emphasized there was a conflict between ISIS and its war on “Christianity” which, in effect, argues that Muslim  terrorists primarily are fighting  “Christian civilization.” Wars in Afghanistan, in Iraq, and in Syria, have resulted in the death of hundreds of thousands of MUSLIMS. Less than five percent of people murdered by Islamic terrorists are Christian. His comments simply enable any Muslim terrorist group to argue that western nations seek to destroy Muslim civilization.

Tweets can be fun, and tweets can be dangerous.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Americans quickly forget what the country was in 2009, and no longer is.

Welcome to the era of government by tweets.

One wonders if Donald Trump has actually ever read a book–from cover to cover.

A majority of Americans are not happy with the outcome of this election.

Government of the minority is now the newest American dream.

Michelle Obama has a sense of pride in America that her successor will never possess.

Sanders supporters who did NOT vote for Clinton most probably are in a state of shock over their decision.

 

The Obama Legacy

Donald Trump will shortly become president of the United States of America and   he will initiate his programs to make America Great Again. In 2009 when Barack Obama became president, he inherited an economy which was losing 800,000 jobs each month, and the national debt had risen from $5 Trillion to $11 Trillion,  and the stock market had collapsed. So,what will Donald Trump now inherit?

1. At least 200,000 new jobs created each month.

2. A growth of 3.2% in the GDP.

3. The unemployment rate is now 4.2%, among the lowest in fifteen years.

4. Health care costs have risen at the lowest rate in nearly twenty years.

5. The war in Iraq is now proceeding at a pace to end ISIS control in that part of the world.

6. Employers now confront the issue of not enough people with skills to fill existing jobs.

7. The stock market has risen to new highs.

8. The value of the dollar is now high.

YES, DONALD, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
