Who’s A Moron?

6 Oct

According to reports from several news outlets US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, at a meeting of national security officials at the Pentagon, threatened to resign his position over disagreements that he and the President have had over…well, just about everything…and then he called President Trump a “moron.”

But later at a press conference Secretary Tillerson said: “There’s never been a consideration in my mind to leave. I serve at the appointment of the president, and I am here for as long as the president feels I can be useful to achieving his objectives.”

However when asked directly if he had called Mr. Trump a “moron,” Secretary Tillerson said: “I’m not going to deal with petty stuff like that,”…Which of course means that he did call the President a moron.

President Trump supposedly is furious about all of this and apparently believes that we, the people of America who don’t blindly believe in his infallibility are the real morons for listening to and believing fake news reports such as this one.

But really what’s the big deal? President Trump has called people lots of unflattering and insulting names. He called former Secretary of State Clinton “evil”. President Obama was “sick”. Senator McCain a “coward”. Senator Cruz a “pussy”. Carly Fiorina was “ugly”. Megyn Kelly a “lightweight”. Ben Carson was a “liar”. A disabled reporter was “retarded”. The Pope was “disgraceful”. Mexicans are “rapists”. Puerto Ricans are “lazy”… and David Duke?…him he “doesn’t know much about”.

Meanwhile Melania Trump, the First Trophy Wife of the United States, (I could be mistaken? And is that an insult?) is doing her best to combat bullying in the United States??? And hopefully soon she will get to the bottom of it.

So who is the real moron in all of this ridiculous debate? You? Me? Secretary Tillerson? The media? The POTUS? The FLOTUS?

Well, we now live in a country where our President can do and say whatever he pleases about whomever he pleases, and he can do it in real time and on Twitter and then even Tweet that he never said what he said he said, even when we have copies of what he said on our own “smart” (not moron) phones and he can insult entire countries and the peoples in them (including our own!) and with the threat of total annihilation and war and he can do it all without the least bit of…

propriety, seemliness, decency, correctness, courtesy, good manners, dignity, good form, respectability, modesty, protocol, custom, convention, politeness, decorum or good taste…

and he still gets to be our POTUS for the next 4 years???….wait!

It’s our Founding Fathers! They’re THE MORONS!

(sorry Founding Fathers but you did not think of everything!)

Only in America?

President Trump recently signed an executive order to “Buy American, Hire American”, which directs a series of federal agency reviews to identify where the government can “aggressively promote and use American-made goods.” It also directs federal agencies to reform the visa laws, which allow companies to bring in highly skilled foreign workers, in an attempt to create more openings for American workers.

Ironically however, this new order would basically make sure that our government doesn’t buy anything that President trump makes! Because there are at least 12 countries where Trump products are manufactured and they include China, the Netherlands, Mexico, India, Turkey, Slovenia, Honduras, Germany, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Vietnam and South Korea… Not to mention Trump products that have transited other countries through the packaging and shipping process.

And as for hiring American…we also know that our president, as a corporate executive, has hired more than 1300 foreign guest workers to work at his various businesses here in the U.S., including requesting 78 visas to staff his two Florida properties for this year alone. Don’t we have any American workers left in Florida?

In fact Donald Trump, now President Trump, has applied for more than 500 visas for foreign workers for his Mar-A-Lago Country Club/Estate/Southern White House… since 2010.

And wouldn’t seeing President trump’s tax returns go a long way in helping us understand just how much the President of America buys American and Hire’s American like he now wants all of us Americans to do?

For goodness sake…Even our First Lady is from a foreign country! But at least she’s married to the President and wasn’t hired by him…(wink, wink)…

This would really make a great reality show if it wasn’t really reality…wouldn’t it?

 

The Media is the Menace!

If you look at these two images and believe that you are seeing what you think you are seeing then you are one of the most dishonest human beings on Earth and nothing short of being lying, deceitful scum…and that’s not my opinion but rather the opinion of our 45th President of the United States.

At least that is what President Donald Trump had to say about members of the national media who reported that the above photo shows that President Obama’s 2009 inauguration as compared to President Trump’s 2017 inauguration, had more people in attendance.

President Trump’s press secretary even announced that the bottom photo, which shows the crowd at President Trump’s inauguration, actually depicts “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration,”

So, what do you think?

Not that it matters mind you, because, when you have won the Presidency of the United States isn’t that an achievement? Does the size of your inauguration crowd, as compared to another President’s crowd size, measure your success? On the first day? Really?

Doesn’t the President, and all of the President’s men… and women… have better things to do? Apparently not if you are Presidential Spokesperson, Kellyanne Conway. Who also went on national television to tell Americans that the President had “alternate facts” to explain why we should all see more people in his inaugural photo rather than President Obama’s inaugural photo.

President Trump’s political strategist, Steve Bannon, later joined the debate and went on to categorize the media as “the opposition party” (to Trump? to truth? to what?) and suggested that they “shut up” from here on in.

And recently Kellyanne added: “Get used to it. He’s (Trump) just getting started!”

So America, get used to the new normal. Seeing is no longer believing. Believing is believing! It’s just that simple. Listen to what the President says, then shut up and believe.

What could be an easier…and more American… way than that for you to help make America great again?

Our New National Anthem?

15 Nov

I propose this song as the United States new National Anthem! The Star Spangled Banner is so old and out dated and no one can remember all of the words anyway… and it’s too long. And this song that I propose is modern and with a beat plus it captures America’s conflicted and new mood… and it has so few words that everyone can remember them and sing along.

Remember when you were young and your heart was an open book?…Of course you do…

And you probably used to say things like “Live and let live.” Especially to your parents…You know you did.

But the world has changed and now we all say. “Live and let die.”… You know we do.

And it’s even got loud music, crescendos, bombs bursting and fireworks!

So what do you say America? Let’s change our National Anthem. Isn’t it time we did?

Really, What does it matter ? It’s just a song we sing at ball games.

Common! Wouldn’t you just love to sing this song out loud and clear…

and give the other fella hell!

You know you do!

 

Thank You Ladies?

10 Nov

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.

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.
