Thank You Ladies?

Image result for voters are women

53% of America’s voters in this year’s presidential election were women and this was their chance to finally crack the greatest glass ceiling of them all and elect the first woman POTUS in the history of the United States. And they could have done it without any men votes at all!

But instead only 54% of the 53% voted for Hillary while an astonishing 53% of all white women voters voted for Donald. I say astonishingly only because you would never see this happen among men. If we know that we control the outcome of something we definitely win that something.

And according to the AP, six in 10 women were bothered by how Trump treated women, compared to about four in 10 men but again, that didn’t make any difference at all.

So basically America’s white women have spoken not only to America’s women but to the watching world of women everywhere and have said: “We don’t need no stinking rights! We have men!”

So ladies? Good luck with that.

Statue of Liberty - 4621961395.jpg

130 years ago the Statue of Liberty was assembled and dedicated on what is now known as Liberty Island in New York Harbor. 17 years later a bronze tablet bearing the text of  Emma Lazarus’s sonnet,  “The New Colossus”, was presented by friends of the poet and mounted inside the pedestal.

The final verse of the poem offers hope to all who come to this great land, the U.S.A.

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

100 years after the great structure was erected, Lady Liberty was renovated  and the statue was reopened to the public on July 5, 1986.  In President Reagan’s dedication speech, he stated, “We are the keepers of the flame of liberty; we hold it high for the world to see.”

Now we face a time when a new Republican president may be elected and with him the promise of closing our doors to immigrants and deporting millions and millions of others who sought asylum and who live here peaceably now.

Perhaps, if elected, he will rededicate the statue and replace the poem that sits beside it with a more apt message that befits his and his followers beliefs?

Something like: Beat it you immigrants or I’ll torch your ass!

Seriously though, if Mr. Trump  should win, how hypocritical would it be to let Lady Liberty continue to stand in our harbor with her beckoning light and message of hope… to a world we would have voted to wall out?

Channeling a Former First Lady and Just Saying…

Melania Trump recently announced that if she were to become the First Lady, her focus would be on teaching children the right way to use social media,  as in— no bullying.

“I will focus on helping children and women, and also about social media. In this 21st century, what’s going on, it’s very hurtful to children. To some adults as well, but we need to take care of children.” Said the possible first lady.

Mr. Trump, our possible next president, added: “We need to teach them how to use it, what is right to say, what is not right to say, because it is very bad out there. I’ve seen so many people hurt so badly.”

Wow! Perhaps Mr. trump has seen so many people hurt so badly by social media because…oh well, you know…because he’s been the one leading the charge!

Anyway, on a lighter note, it is believed that Melania’s message to children everywhere, should she become the next First Lady of the United States,  will be a very simple and straight forward one. Something like:

Kids, when it comes to social media and bullying? Just Say LOL!

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.

 

 

 

TrickleReaganTrumpanomics

28 Sep

Image result for reaganomics

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.
