NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

In the Wild West, the code was for the sheriff not to shoot until the bad guy first reached for his gun.

Trump always has a plan, his plan is to have a plan.

Explain how this vulgar, hating  person is a candidate for president.

Imagine: the fate of our world depends upon a debate!

The horror of Syria is a metaphor to modern life.

Social media encourages words rather than specificity of plans.

Republicans blame Barack Obama for just about all ills in the world.

Imagine: Mitt Romney these days is a great candidate for president.

I would so love to be with the Bush family on Monday night.

Ted Cruz has one goal in life–to get  Power!

For police, the new slogan should be–shoot last.

There is such hate in the souls of Republicans these days.

Ah, these days, Canada looks like a  wonderful nation.

God definitely has taken a vacation from planet Earth.

Donald Can End Violence

Finally, finally, Donald Trump has decided to end violence in this nation. After all, this kind, decent man has provided thousands of Great Jobs for African Americans, they can clean rooms in his hotel, they can be a bus boy, they can even wash windows. AND, they get paid the incredible wage of $7.25 an hour! But, when Donald saw  picture of people rioting, and destroying property, he decided it was time to end such behavior. He made clear that once he becomes president, any “attack on the poor will never be accepted in a Trump administration. Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the violent disrupters.”

So, step one in a Trump administration is to have “stop and frisk.” And, of course, the folks to be stopped and frisked are those disruptive black  people. How many white folks do you see being violent in the streets of our nation??

ON Officer Shelby

We now have seen over and over the film of Officer Shelby standing with gun drawn as she gazes toward Mr.Crutcher near his car. Her assumption is that she feared being gun downed by a man who was out of control. My background: I spent four months in Basic Training learning to fire weapons, including a pistol. I was considered a crack shot. Subsequently, I spent two years going to target practice every month for three hours.

Anyone familiar with the pistol knows that it is very  unstable. It is difficult to fire a pistol,the natural reaction is to have your hand jerk, unless you have spent countless hours practicing with firing a pistol. Actually, a trained person holds the pistol with both  hands, and focuses the body upon the object to fire at. Mr.Crutcher was standing with arms in the air, thus he was not near a pistol. Assume, Officer Shelby is correct, he reached into his car to get a weapon.

1. She never had any reason to suspect there was a pistol in the car.

2. If Mr.Crutcher did have a gun in his car, why would it be on the front seat?

3. If he DID have a gun, and swirled around to shoot her, he would have had a split second to aim the gun. Most probably,anyone who swirls around and fires the gun without taking aim, would have a hard time hitting a barn.

4.Nothing prevented Officer Shelby from dropping to her knee, holding her gun with both hands, and aiming at Mr. Crutcher

Reality, Officer Shelby was NOT confronting any threat. She may have IMAGINED a threat, but none existed. The first responsibility of police officers is to protect CIVILIANS.  It is not to protect themselves from alleged threats.

Donald Wants Your Vote

I watched a Trump ad which discusses the goal of Donald Trump to make America Great Again. Naturally, I support the idea of America being Great, but am confused about the “again”comment. I did watch closely what the ad told me about Donald Trump.

1. He is a successful businessman. He creates jobs. OK, the only jobs that came across in this ad were –kitchen help, maids, guys who park cars, and people working gambling tables.

2. He wants to make America safe again.The assumption of the ad is that all America needs to be safe is for Donald Trump to say, he will make it safe.

3. There were a few clips of black skinned people. This undoubtedly proves that most African Americans support Trump.

4. Donald Trump wants to reduce government waste. I have now heard that promise from politicians since 1940. I assume this time, whatever we term, “waste” will disappear.

5. Donald Trump promised to be open about himself to voters.For some strange reason, not a word about his tax returns.

6. Donald loves children. Actually, not a word how he will display this love.

7, Donald loves women. He has the proof. Hillary only had one husband, he has  THREE wives!

Oh, I so love when he waves his hands to emphasize a point.

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

A Trump supporter the  other day noted that Barack Obama was absent from the Oval office on 9/11. Why?

George H.W. Bush is an old fashioned Patriot.

Donald Trump is an old fashioned Coward.

I would so love to be a businessman these days selling products to Trump supporters, “Guys, I got this fantastic medicine that cures any illness.”

Too many Americans seek a rendezvous with stupidity.

I increasingly wonder what teachers teach about history these days in high school.

I so miss the wit of a John Kennedy as president.

Michelle Obama has become a fantastic first lady.

Trump The Businessman

I am continually told by supporters of Donald Trump that he is a  brilliant businessman. They adore his business success, even the times he has gone bankrupt as evidence he knows how to create Great Jobs. At no time do these ignorant folks actually explain which Great Jobs were created by the Great Businessman. As far as I can tell, he has created low skill, low pay jobs. Sorry, those working gambling tables do possess some skills. But, heck, my wife learned those skills quickly when she worked the gambling tables.

But, the most amazing aspect of Trump supporters is their support of his plan to deport eleven million illegal immigrants. Imagine, someone in your company who rushed into the office of the president shouting: “Boss, I got this great idea. Let’s get rid of eleven million of our customers!” The eleven million illegal immigrants spend hundreds of billions of dollars purchasing goods in America, so you brilliant supporters of Trump want to get rid of these customers! I think Donald Trump wants to make MEXICO GREAT AGAIN!

Reality With Capturing Terrorists

The recent episode in which Ahmad Rahami went nuts and wounded several people with his knife illustrates the reality confronting anyone who has responsibility  for security  in the United States. His father, Mohammad Rahami said:”Two years ago I go to the FBI because my son was doing bad.OH, they say, he’s OK, he’s clear, he’s not a terrorist.” Now,Donald Trump wants to know why the FBI refused to arrest this terrorist.

Note this terrorist was a naturalized citizen living in peace for over twenty years, having made friends who were NOT terrorists, and, to all intents, a normal, decent American citizen. For example, we are unable to prevent school shootings by normal Americans, we are not able to prevent the shooting deaths in Chicago of over 400 people so far this year. There is no such thing as “perfect” security. We inhabit the planet, Earth, which consists of a great many violent creatures. Such is life on this planet.

Shoot To Kill

I frankly no longer know which words to use when the topic of a police officer killing an unarmed black person comes up. First, let me make clear that those who murder the innocent are NOT the majority of police officers. But the pattern is so clear, the results so frequent that one must reach a conclusion, these can not ALL be a mistake.There is something about encountering a black skinned man on the streets or highways which leads some cops to just blast away.

Terrence Crutcher had just enrolled in a community college program. His SUV broke down on the street. Someone called 911 to report that a car was blocking the street. A police helicopter was hovering over head. Officer Betty Shelby arrived at the scene and was soon joined by two other cops. A  video clearly shows Mr. Crutcher with arms in the air walking toward the police. Officer Shelby shot him,later claiming he was walking back to the car to get a weapon. HUH! If he was walking back to his car, how the hell did she know he was getting  a gun?? Tulsa Police Chief Chuck  Jordan could only say: “TV footage was very disturbing and difficult to watch.”

Interviewing Trump Folks

Although I did not specifically interview any supporters of Donald Trump, I did watch several clips in which they were interviewed. Frankly, one does not have to  actually  interview these strange creatures, to know how they view the world.

M: So, what do you  think about President Obama now that he is leaving the presidency?

T: Well, it is about time we got an American born person as our president.

M: Why do you say he is not American born? He even released his birth certificate.

T: Fred, he has black skin, people in Africa have black skin. One plus one equals two. Anyway, once Trump becomes president, we can finally learn what happened on 9/11.

M: What does Obama have to do with 9/11?

T: We will finally learn why Obama was not in the White House when the terrorists struck. We know the White House was the original target.

M: I’m confused. Wasn’t George Bush the president in 2001?

T: There you liberals go  again, shifting the topic. What about the secret love affair between Obama and Hillary? What about the fact that Hillary had a love child with Obama?

End of interview.
