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

San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw 20 yards in passing, perhaps he might kneel when he throws passes.

These days idiot Sarah Palin is making more sense than idiot Donald Trump, what next, a five year old becomes our Secretary of State?

I guess Donald Trump would tell Hitler, “Adolf, you are doing a fantastic job ending unemployment.”

Donald angers China, what next, a nuclear match to see which nation  is more adventurous?

Some newly elected presidents read books and reports, Donald Trump watches SNL to tweet.

Perhaps, they need to construct a play pen in the White House for Donald.

These are not the best of times.

 

President Richard Nixon in the 1970s reached out to Communist China and established diplomatic relations in order to split off this communist nation from its alliance with the Soviet Union. As part of recognition, the US ceased to recognize the government of Taiwan as an independent nation. Both China and the US accepted a new reality, China would continue to claim that Taiwan was still part of China, but Communist China would not invade this country. The US ended its diplomatic recognition of an independent Taiwan.

So, wha  does Donald Trump do?He became the  first American president since this unofficial process was accepted, who interacted with the president of Taiwan. Donald called spoke with her, and each congratulated one another. So far, there has not been a furious outburst from China over the Trump call. However, according to China expert, John Delury of Yansei University in Seoul, South Korea, “I think it would be a mistake to think he got a pass on Taiwan. I think it goes in his file.They are holding their fire, but they are seizing him up. I think it would be a classic mistake for Trump and his people to think, ‘Wow, we got away with it.”

Ah, The Carrier Topic!

Donald Trump is receiving gobs of praise for his effort to compel Carrier corporation not to send 1,300 jobs to Mexico. He is hailed for getting this organization to promise that no jobs from their plant in Indianapolis will ever  wind up in Mexico. Many now believe with Donald Trump as our president jobs will remain in America to be done by native born God fearing Americans. Who else but the Donald man could save jobs for Americans?

Oh, for some reason, Mr. Trump has not said a word about the 1,300 Carrier jobs in Huntington, Indiana which are headed for Mexico. It turns out the  United Mine Workers union had reached an agreement with Carrier which provided severance pay for any worker who lost his job, as well as financial aid to receive education or financial support to improve work skills.

The Children Need Hope

There were millions of people, many who were  supporters of Bernie Sanders who simply did not get enthusiastic about the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. As far as they were concerned, ‘all politicians are the same, makes no difference if a Republican like Trump is president or  a friend of Wall Street  like Hillary Clinton.” Well, they did not vote or they voted for Jill Stein, and they allowed  Donald Trump to become president. I assume none of these people were illegal immigrants nor did any of these people have children who arrived in the US as a child. Donald Trump has promised to deport these children and void the Deferred Action for Childhood program.

Senators Lindsay Graham and John McCain have promised to fight for these children, both are Republicans, but both are decent people. Graham made clear, “this is a test for America, not just Donald Trump. This is a defining moment for who we are as a party,  and who we are as a nation.” Thank God there are Republicans who are enthused about the lives of these children!

Trump Loves Fantastic Guys!

If there is one thing that Donald Trump is great at is expressing his love of people who are famous. He just spoke with President Narsultan Nazarbayev, the guy who runs the country of Kazakhstan. As  Donald expressed to this leader, “Hi, I hear fantastic things about you, folks say you are one great, no, fantastic leader to your country, excuse me, I just can’t pronounce its name, but, it must be a fantastic country, wonderful, and having you as its boss man, must be fantastic for the people. I am sure they just adored their fantastic leader.”

Oh, President Nazabayev has been the dictator for over twenty  years. Yes, Donald, he is a fantastic guy. If you get on his hit list, this fantastic leader offers you two choices: in the vat of boiling water or in the vat of acid. In either case, you wind up without any skin. Yes, Donald, a fantastic guy!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I feel insulted,Trump has never tweeted me. Am I the only American who can make that statement?

These are glory days for the wealthy, another few million going their way.

I wonder if Donald ever met anyone who was not ‘FANTASTIC”

Amazing, the KKK is now to the left of the Trump administration.

I wonder when Trump will privatize the US armed forces.

Let me get this straight, reduce taxes and have more money. A bit confusing, but, what the heck, this is Trump time.

I still wonder if Ivanka is Secretary of State or Pence resigns and she becomes the vice president>

Handling Black Children

I currently live in Chicago so my daily newspaper must contain at least one shooting which entails the death of some young black girl or boy. The other day a grandson of a US Congressman was at home when two friends came to visit. Somehow, they wound up arguing about  clothes and a teen girl shot his grandson to death. So, reading this story about a seven year old boy in a Baltimore charter school did not surprise me.

Timothy Korr is seven. He was in a classroom when somehow he got into an argument with a  25  year old tutor, Trayson Gray, and  this argument between a seven year old and a 25 year old escalated into violence. The child wound up with a fractured jaw and two missing teeth. The adult insists the boy hit the wall. Let me get this straight, a grown man can not handle a seven year old boy without the child getting a fractured jaw!!

General Michael Flynn

As you recall or don’t recall, Donald Trump never ceased talking about emails and classified material and the need to send Hillary Clinton to prison for violating the law. So, who does he appoint as his National Security advisor, but General Michael Flynn who was reprimanded for misuse of classified materials and fired from his position in national security. Of course, Trump has been talking with General Petraeus about a position in his administration even though he was convicted of revealing classified material to his mistress.

Anyway, General Flynn has the reputation in his former work in national security of spouting nonsense and shooting off his mouth about  people and governments. He has stated:

1. The Muslim religion is not rational.

2. Sharia law is spreading in THE UNITED STATES.

3. Iran killed more Americans than did al-Qaeda.

4. He opposes the Iran nuclear deal and has talked about bombing Iran.

5. Most of his colleagues believed that he was irrational and lacked a competent view of foreign policy.

Who else to be the National Security advisor to the president??

Trump Talks With Asian Leaders

We are able to reveal the secret conversations that Donald Trump had with leaders of Pakistan and India.

Prime Minister Sharif: “Look, I’m Donald Trump,  the new president of the United States and I wanted to let you know how much I love people from Pakistan, hell, I had some Paki doctor take care of me last year, great guy, wonderful people, love them all, all them Pakis, and I want you to know that if you are ever in town, please stop by and say, hello. Fantastic people, absolutely wonderful are  you folks from Pakistan. Loves you all. Great doctors, good with your hands, loves you all, and just remember, there are SPECIAL RATES AT ALL TRUMP HOTELS WHEN YOU ARE IN TOWN SEEING ME!

Prime Minister Modi: “Just calling to let you know I’m the president. I think Indians are fantastic people, I even think those from the US are incredible folks. I know some real smart Indians, some of them are building new Trump Towers in India, just remember, help them out with all that red tape, no need for some red tape to stand between our great relationship. Indians, smart people, know some from Silicon Valley, absolutely great, fantastic, look forward to some incredible business relations in the coming years. Give me regards to your buddies over in  Pakistan.”

Donald Wants To Bring People Together

Donald Trump told a gathering of his followers that he wants to bring Americans together again. Here is how he will do this:

1. He appointed Jeff Sessions as the new Attorney General, a man who will do NOTHING to prevent states from denying the right to  vote for Democrats.

2. His chief advisor is Steve Bannon, a man  supported by every neo-Nazi group who does not want his daughter to “go to school with Jewish girls.”

3. He has appointed  opponents of Obamacare to key positions even though a new survey by the Kaiser Foundation shows that most Americans agree with most of the ideas of Obamacare.

4. He just came out to send to jail or strip of citizenship Americans engaged in legal protests such as burning the American flag.

5. He has  yet to  appoint a single black American who is highly regarded by black Americans to any position in his Cabinet.

6.He continues frightening Hispanic children with his vow to send them back to Mexico.

Beyond that, he is bringing people together again.
