People Who Live in Glass Houses…

In a 2005 audio recording with Howard Stern, Donald Trump had this to say about his time as a Miss USA and Miss Universe pageant owner:

“Well, I’ll tell you the funniest is that I’ll go backstage before a show, and everyone’s getting dressed and ready and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere. And I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it. You know, I’m inspecting, I want to make sure that everything is good.

You know, the dresses. ‘Is everyone okay?’ You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that. But no, I’ve been very good. ”

Since then 4 women who competed in the 1997 Miss Teen USA Beauty Pageant made similar allegations about Mr. Trump walking in on them while they were in various states of dress and undress. Those particular allegations however, have not been proven nor disproved but from what we know about Mr. Trump’s attitudes toward women from his own recorded words they are more than possibly, very true.

And yet Mr. Trump has promised that if elected President of the United States he will personally appoint a special prosecutor to investigate and then jail his opponent, Hillary Clinton, for her Email crimes.

One can only wonder if he will also order a special prosecutor to have himself investigated for possible sex offender crimes. And will Congress, during his presidential term, call him before 9 different investigative committees to get to the bottom of these very serious allegations? Will Russia hack his private Emails to get to the truth and then have Julian Assange release them to the American public? Will Fox News follow this story every minute of every day in order to shed as much light upon it as it deserves?

Probably not. These were just women and girls being harmlessly embarrassed by a grown man who was more than likely just playing like a teenage boy…Only crazy people and really nasty women would think otherwise…right?

And all 747,000 registered sex offenders in the USA too?



Has He tried Prayer?

Donald trump says that Hillary Clinton is leading the presidential race only because the entire free American electoral process is fixed. It’s corrupted and contaminated by a cabal of lying statesmen, corrupt politicians, incompetent FBI agents, dishonest Congressmen, Jewish bankers, evil Mexicans, Islamic terrorists, and sinful, irreligious, ungodly citizens.

Donald trump has had it with Hillary Clinton. He says that she is a crooked, evil, contemptible liar. He says that she belongs in jail and that if he is elected president he will see that she is arrested and put away. He says that she has incredible hate in her heart that he personally knows is there. He says that she is literally the devil and has even called for her murder should she be elected President of the United States.

But has he tried prayer?

Why doesn’t he stop saying such terrible things about Ms. Clinton and simply gather all of his Evangelical Christian supporters, which must number in the millions, and together with himself and his family form the largest prayer circle that the Christian world has ever seen and then…pray Hillary away?

He can’t lose then can he? All of America’s morally superior citizens gathered together in one place praying to God on high to defeat the very devil herself? With prayer all things are possible are they not?

So Mr. Trump, I propose you trying preying…with prayer. Does not God always bless America?



To Frisk or Not To Shoot? Is That the Question or the Answer?

1 Oct

Image result for what do we call the establishment of law and order without due process of rights

Donald Trump likes to accuse Hillary Clinton of plotting to eliminate the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. That’s the Amendment that guarantees Americans the right to bear arms. But I seriously doubt that she’s even considering such a proposal because:

Currently 31 states allow folks to openly bear their arms in public while 8 states allow you to bear them in secret. All of the other states allow one or the other or both, as long as you’ve obtained a permit. So here in the United States we’re pretty much in love with our arms. And by arms, of course, I actually mean weapons and not those anatomical extensions on your shoulders.

Anyway, here in the U.S. we love our weapons so much that we have over 300 million of them on hand and available to the general public. And those are just the ones in our homes without even counting the ones in our stores!

Which is why I find it most unusual that every time someone is shot by the police the police always explain the shooting by saying, “They had a gun! so we had to shoot them! Or at least we thought they did” (which is almost the same thing police-wise) But as I’ve just explained, it’s not illegal to have a gun in the United States. In fact it’s so legal that almost every state allows them to be on your person when in public.

How do the police know if you have a legal permit to own that gun that you have, while they are shooting at you, if they don’t even bother to ask to see your permit before they start shooting? It’s always “He’s got a gun! He’s got a gun!” And then Blam, blam, blam, blam, blam! (they never, ever, just shoot once)

Why do we always assume that having a gun out in public  makes one a criminal, when it’s not a crime to have a gun out in public in all but 6 states? (and it’s legal in those 6 states too, with a permit) Have you ever wondered that? How come when one police officer shouts, “He’s got a gun!” The other officer doesn’t shout back, “Maybe he’s got a permit?” Or…”We’re in a state where it’s legal to have one in public!”

So why are the police always shooting people who possess a gun, or who they suspect of possessing one, when we live in a country where the 2nd Amendment to our constitution says that they are allowed to posses a gun and half the country is absolutely gaga over that being the most important amendment to our constitution? Might the police have another reason? I’m only asking because I don’t know. Do you?

Which brings me to my next point. Donald Trump, himself a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and an opponent of gun control legislation and with the endorsement of the NRA for his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States, says that he has a solution for gun crime in America. And it’s simple. All we have to do is empower the police to stop and frisk bad people and if they find a gun on that frisked person? Take it!

So, if we infringe upon a citizen’s 1st Amendment rights by illegally searching them and then violate that citizen’s 2nd Amendment rights by seizing his or her gun, and then if we deny the due process afforded to citizens in the 5th and 14th Amendments…we can solve the problems of crime and murder in America. It’s so easy you’d think that that Constitutional Amendment hating Hillary What’s-Her-Name would have thought of this already!

And it will be no inconvenience at all (to have our rights infringed) because I know that I’m not going to be stopped and frisked. Just look at me. Do I look like a bad guy? And you know they won’t stop and frisk you because…well, do you look like a bad guy? Certainly not! The police will only be stopping and frisking dangerous and criminal types like…you know, like the ones they have already been accidentally shooting lately.

The only problem I have with Mr. Trump’s plan is: The police could be frisking and disarming suspects right now to find out if they have a gun before shooting them for having a gun, but they can’t seem to get close enough to do so. They always seem to get to the shooting part before the frisking part.

And since our lawmakers, empowered by the NRA, like Mr. Trump, keep making it easier to own and carry a gun in public places how can we also make it illegal to own and carry a gun in public places? That sounds insanely counter intuitive to me. How does it sound to you? And if it is legal to openly carry my gun in 44 states, why do I need to be stopped and frisked at all? Why Can’t I just show the police my gun and be on my way?

Perhaps it is me (or maybe you) that they’re afraid of and not my gun? Or maybe it is the gun? Duh! But then again does the ownership of a gun make only certain folks more dangerous while making other folks not so much? One need only go back to the origins of the 2nd Amendment to figure that one out.

What this November’s election is going to come down to is not whether Americans need better jobs and more secure borders but rather whether or not Americans need to retain their constitutional rights as they pertain to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!…especially women, children and all persons of color.

Unless of course for you, “Making America Great Again” means to make America great just for white men… again.

Donald Trump announced his grand economic plan at the debate last night. And mostly it includes tax cuts for the wealthy because the wealthy love to create jobs for the common folk and so if you give the wealthy more money then they will spend it on you.

Sadly, we can never propose to give the poor folk more money because that would be socialism and the more money you give to the poor the worse it gets for them because they only get lazy and then waste the money on drugs and then need more socialism.

The wealthy however are never lazy and do not waste any money on drugs but rather only wish to spend their excess money on making things better for the poor by creating more business/job opportunities which is a good thing that in turn makes more money for the wealthy which is another good thing and since there is nothing social about it, just business… It is a great thing.

Except no matter how many times this economic plan is tried, no matter where, no matter when, it always fails to produce the results expected…or hoped for. And why is that? Because when wealthy people get more money, they keep it and add it to their collection of money. Or they spend it on the extravagances that they enjoy that require special services and servants and not you…unless you are a low wage worker in one of the many service industries. Or they pass it on to their relatives.

Who, thanks to Mr. Trump’s other tax proposal (to eliminate the inheritance tax) can keep it all without paying any taxes on it, ever. So they can in turn pass it on to their relatives and so on and so on ad infinitum, tax free.

And even Mr. Trump agrees that to not pay any taxes is a good and smart thing to do if you are wealthy. When he had to show his income taxes to NJ state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license, they showed he didn’t pay any federal income tax at all. “That makes me smart.” Said his wealthiness.

And as the debate continued, Mr. Trump complained that the U.S. Treasury has accumulated too much debt while the government has neglected American infrastructure. “We’re a debtor nation,” he said. But no matter, because even if Mr. Trump and his fellow wealthy Americans paid their fare share “It would be squandered, too, believe me.” He added.

So to sum up Donald trump’s tax plan:
Give more money to the wealthiest Americans in the form of tax reductions. They in turn, will create great jobs and bring their businesses and money back to America…unless they are  smart and possess good business minds, then of course it will be their business duty to figure out how to pay even less or nothing in taxes, while continuing to make things in China and Bangladesh, like Trump companies do.
And that is how he will fund the rebuilding of our infrastructure, continue the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and with ISIS, fight cyber-terror, build the wall on the Mexican border, deport millions of illegal aliens, pay down the debt and make America Great again.
After all, who needs money to pay for government expenses? I’m sure that when you try to think of ways to pay your ever inflating expenses your first thought is always: Hey! Maybe I can reduce my income?! Yeah that oughta do it…and declaring bankruptcy 4 times might help also…oh, but I think that’s for rich people too.

The Desperate Ones

19 Sep

Image result for suburbs

I keep hearing this all of the time these days: “The American public is desperate and that’s why they are going to vote for Donald Trump.”

But who are these desperate Americans…these Desperadoes? Current literature indicates that desperado is derived from the Spanish term desesperado which means a person with no hope. So are there that many Americans who are feeling hopeless in America today? So much so that they see Donald Trump as their only hope to save a ruined America?

And is America in ruins? Here where I live, in white, suburban, New Jerseyed, America most of my white friends say that’s exactly how they feel, “Hopeless and ruined” …and they say this on Facebook and out-loud almost everyday and as often as they can.

Right after they wake up in their big suburban houses with affordable, almost paid-off mortgages and manicured lawns and with a big cup of $10 Starbucks in their hand they like to say, “Just look around. The USA is going to hell in a hand-basket!”

Then they are off to play golf or hangout at the local gym where they like to kibitz about how all of their money is being wasted on needless taxes to pay for entitlement programs and the poor.

Later, while washing their shiny new car, which they like to replace with a newer model every 3 years or so, they’re happy to chew your ear off about how ISIS is destroying the world and embarrassing our military and keeping us from getting more oil for our gas guzzling cars…but they’ll leave out the guzzling part.

On Facebook they love to post photos of their summer vacation in Cancun where the weather was beautiful, the people friendly and the prices cheap. Then their next post will explain exactly why we need a nice big wall built on the border to keep those personable yet pesky Mexicans from visiting us here. “Because they’re no good, lazy job destroyers!” (however, they do possess just enough energy for raping and murdering)

My desperate, white, American friends also like to tell me how illegal immigrants are taking all of the good American jobs, while destroying the American way of life and contributing nothing to our society…and they often say this right after the Spanish-American army has just finished roofing their houses, mowing their lawns, cleaning their homes and picking up after their children.

Many of my friends are also desperate for a return to the rule of law and for fair and balanced justice for all Americans! And as soon as they get it they want Hillary and Obama arrested and imprisoned immediately and without warrant or charges because that’s how it should be done in an America that needs to become great…again!

Yes, all of the Trump supporters that I know are very desperate… but what they are truly desperate about or for is hard to figure out, since they already appear to have just about everything they want or need.

What I do know however, is that should Trump be elected president then the truly desperate ones in America will have less than they have now. I know this because the Republicans have already told us their plans…and Donal Trump is indeed a Republican and one who will see to it that the Supreme Court will be as Republican as the Senate and House of Representatives already are.

And so in a completely Republican America what we know will happen is:

The hungry will become hungrier. The poor will be made poorer. The homeless will remain without homes. The unions will diminish. The pensions will disappear. Women will lose rights to control their own bodies. Those who need healthcare will lose what healthcare they have now. Those who are now married in what some feel is an nontraditional way will find themselves un-married. Higher education will grow more expensive and be out of reach for most Americans. The planet will grow hotter still… And last but not least, The 1%  at the top of the income ladder will grow richer and with no regulation, while the other 1%, at the bottom of the income ladder, will do all of the fighting in far away countries and with no respite.

We know all of this because that is what is in the Republican platform…which you can actually read if you’d like, on the internet. And Donald Trump is, after all, no savior…just Republican.

So if it is not for restoring an old white man and old white values to the Presidency of the United States of America then what pray tell, are the self proclaimed desperate ones really so desperate for? Can anyone out there honestly tell me?




The Great Wall of US

5 Sep

Image result for the great wall

Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, says that if elected he still promises to build an “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall,” that will be bolstered by technology and paid for by Mexico.

The Mexican President Enrique Peña, however, said that Mexico will in no way pay for any wall built by The United States of America. And one would probably have to agree with the Mexican President because Mexico is a sovereign nation and no free state would ever pay for something that some other nation has built and owns…absent of an act of war that is.

Will America declare war on Mexico if Donald trump is elected President of the United States? How else will he get the good people of Mexico to fork over their hard earned money? Swap for drugs? (Americans use more drugs than any other nation by far) Send them a bill? (every Republican knows that Hispanics/Mexicans/Whatever, don’t pay their bills) Maybe the border guards can hold every Mexican that they catch trying to get over the wall upside down and shake out the change from their pockets? That might help.

In any case, Mr. Trump, nor any of his supporters, has yet to explain how they will get Mexico to pay for the mighty 19 hundred mile wall. But be that as it may no can can even explain how…or even where for that matter, this impenetrable, powerful and beautiful wall will be built because 12 hundred of those miles include the Rio Grande River.

Will we build a wall along the river also? This, I think, might be a first among walls. And on whose side would the wall be built. If we build said wall on the Mexican side then we will have to invade Mexico and confiscate a portion of their land on which to build our wall and a demilitarized or neutral zone from which we could defend it. Otherwise they might just knock the wall down!

If we build the wall on our side of the Rio Grande River then all Texans and Americans will be cut off from using the river as a water resource or for recreation purposes or just for looking at. I suppose we could paint a 1,200 mile mural of the river on our side of the wall. After all what’s a little more expense when spending billions in the first place?

But in spite of all of these questions that I have (I don’t know about anyone else) according to a recent Pew Research center analysis, more Mexican immigrants have returned to Mexico from the U.S. than have migrated here since the end of the Great Recession, and that’s  according to newly available government data from both countries. The same data sources also show the overall flow of Mexican immigrants between the two countries is at its smallest since the 1990s, mostly due to a drop in the number of Mexican immigrants coming to the U.S.

So who needs a wall? Besides how will all of my Trump supporting friends who just love to vacation in Mexico because it’s so beautiful, cheap and a place where the people are so friendly, going to get there if we build a wall?

I know what you are thinking… they’ll fly or take a boat! So I guess it’s a good thing that Mexicans haven’t learned how to do either of those things yet isn’t it?

And yet, Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, still says that if elected he promises to build an “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall,” that will be bolstered by technology and paid for by Mexico.

He just forgot to mention that what it won’t be is practical…nor in any way effective.

The 2nd Amendment Isn’t the Only Amendment

30 Aug

Image result for 1st amendment

And all Americans should know that as can be attested to by the 2nd Amendment’s name…

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s has refused to stand during recitations of the national anthem at football games in a personal attempt to protest police brutality in the United States. Consequently this has many conservative Americans up in arms, including Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Which I find quite interesting because conservatives are supposed to be the ones who have less of an inclination towards change or liberal interpretations… of, say… the Constitution of the United States of America! As in the 1st Amendment which guarantees freedom of speech and the right to peaceably protest without fear of government reprisal.

So Mr. Kaepernick would like to protest, which is his 1st Amendment right to do so, in front of America’s football fans, just like he has the right to carry a gun and shoot himself in front of America if he so chooses. And you can bet that Conservatives all across this great land would defend his right to do just that (after having staged the appropriate moment of silence before prying said gun out of his cold dead hands)

But when Mr. Kaepernick exercises his 1st Amendment right to free speech and protest, so called Conservative pundits are going hog wild with apoplexy and are making comments like. “How dare he!” “He’s UN-American!””He must be a Muslim!” “But I thought his parents were white?”(which of course is a prerequisite for American contentment?)

And then even that great Constitutional scholar, Donald Trump, chimed in with “Why doesn’t he go find another country?” (Also his immigration policy)

Yes, we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave but how dare anyone be brave enough to exercise their freedom  by protesting that which they find disturbing or inequitable about their government or country.

This is America after all so sit down and shut up… or rather stand up and place your hand over your heart and shut up…no don’t shut up. Just sing! About the ramparts and the red glare and about how the country fought for its freedoms because freedom isn’t free and that’s why we have the 2nd Amendment, which is the only really true and important amendment, so when you get frustrated and angry with your government that you feel no longer serves the people you can go out and get your gun and then just shut up and shoot someone…

No wait…that can’t be right can it???

Damn liberals!
