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 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

Sad Confused Young Man

A trial has begun in Charleston, South Carolina which involved a young man, Dylan Roof, who entered a church while people were praying and shot several of them. Mr. Roof is the product of countless stories, dozens of hate filled speeches, and daily disrespect for black Americans. The prosecution charges that Roof carried out an act with a “cold and hateful heart.” In the view of Dylan Roof, HE was the victim,and was merely seeking “racist retribution for perceived acts agains the white race.”

The sadness of this trial is that Dylan Roof actually believes that HE is the victim. Somehow, his mind has rewritten daily life to emerge with a scenario of whites as the subject of prejudice, and blacks as possessing power and wealth. Such is the world in which millions of white Americans live.

Just Words, Do You Believe Them

We offer some words of wisdom for those living in the United States of America.

Cory Lewandowski, Trump adviser: “This is the problem with the media. You guys took everything that Donald Trump said so literally. The American people did not.” What else can one say?

Cory Lewandowski:”Free at last, Free at last, now one can say, Merry Christmas.”

Cory,in my home we say, Happy Hanukah!

Mr. Trump is upset because TIME magazine said on its cover, “the Divided States of America.” Trump:”I’m going to bring them back together again.”

Trump tweeted to Alec Baldwin of SNL: “Not funny, not funny, bad, bad.”

At least we know the new president devotes hours to Saturday Night Live.

Donald Trump: “We won’t Lock Her Up.”

Have you considered locking up anti-semites like your chief adviser, Steve Bannon?

Clark Jones, Union leader of Carrier workers on Trump claim he saved jobs.

“He’s lying his ass off.” Turns out he included among the ‘saved jobs,’ jobs that never were going to Mexico.

Rudy Giuliani on knowing he will not be the new  Secretary of State:

“I single-handedly saved New York City, and, damn it, I will save America!!”

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.

What Definitely Will Occur Next Year

There is some good news about the incoming administration, we can definitely be certain several things will occur at some point next year.

1. Ivanka will sell Queen Elizabeth a new dress, made especially for her by Donald Trump.

2. Jared Kushner will definitely be appointed by Donald to solve the Palestinian-Israel conflict. He is Jewish,and Jews somehow are part of this conflict.

3. General Michael Flynn will uncover a plot by Muslim invaders from the planet, XUL, to take over Earth.

4. Ben Carson will become lost the first week in HUD, until someone is appointed to take him by the hand and show him how to get from one office to another.

5. Then again, someone will be appointed to teach him what HUD does.

6. Rudy Giuliani will throw a temper tantrum when not appointed Secretary  of State. He will roll on the floor shouting curses.

7. No jobs will actually return from China, but  Donald will declare –victor!

8. Hillary Clinton will NOT be locked up.

9. Trump Enterprises will open new hotels in Taiwan and Kazakhstan.

10. Tweets will become the new method of political discourse.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if we should not begin to offer medals for those wounded in the Trump tweet wars.

I still wonder if Donald Trump has actually ever read a book from cover to cover.

One must admit the Trumps enjoy linking business and pleasure.

I suspect if Kim Jong un offered Trump the right to build hotels in his country, Donald would OK atomic bombs for him.

The Trump slogan, never ignore any opportunity to make a buck.

I still am confused why Ben Carson was not made Chief of Staff of our armed forces, he is so SINCERE.

I wonder which Cabinet position Trump’s grandson will get, Secretary of Education, after all, he goes to school.

Torture Is OK With Americans

Once  upon a time in America, we Americans believed in the basic principles of human decency. Today, millions of Americans have lost respect for international law that protects those who serve in the military from abuse when captured. A study by the International Committee of the Red Cross reveals that 46% of Americans believe it is acceptable to torture enemy combatants. Only 30% oppose. In 1999, 60%  of Americans opposed torture.

So, why the change? Today, fewer than one percent of the population actually serves in the military. So, Trump like folks believe they are heroes by supporting torture, since they never will be captured. During WWII, captured German soldiers were shown respect. It was unusual for any  to be tortured. At this point, the norm was to show respect for the enemy, and obtain information through guile and being pleasant. Actually, this still works today.
