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?

15 Oct

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?

 

 

TrickleReaganTrumpanomics

28 Sep

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 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!

 

 

Do All Lives Matter? Really?

10 Aug

This is something that I wrote a little over a year ago as the political frenzy here in the USA was just beginning to heat up. Now that it’s on full boil I thought that I’d post it again. We have a lot of good things going for us here in the USA and we have a lot of problems too. But what is it that matters the most to Americans? Is it our fellow country-men’s lives, fortunes or sacred honor?

I saw a post on Facebook recently espousing this thought:

“We must put an end to economic freeloading…There must be no place for parasites who draw their sustenance from society without giving anything in return.”

We have over 50 million people in this country who live below the poverty line. And it’s a pretty low line…certainly not one that we or anyone else that I know would want to live under for one day… let alone a year or two or a lifetime. And of all the industrialized countries in the world we, the United States, the richest, mightiest, most boastful country in the world… is last in helping its poor people.

Wow! We’re last in the first world at charity…and as far as I can tell it makes most Americans sick…and not because we’re last but because we can’t get any lower… without leaving the first world and joining the second and third world countries in order to do it that is. Most folks and certainly all Republicans, would like to cut programs for the poor (like food stamps, rent assistance, healthcare and welfare) all together and completely.

After all there is no place for parasites is there? Unless we count prison, and we are first in prisons and prisoners aren’t we? Huzzah! At least we are proud to be number one in some category among the wealthy, advanced nations of the world. But if the poor are parasites and undeserving moochers who draw sustenance from their hosts while offering nothing in return, what are we to do with them? Kill them? Eat them? We already ignore them don’t we? If they aren’t already in prison then they certainly are pretty much invisible. Right?

I mean seriously, do you see a lot of poor folks during your daily routine? You pretty much have to go out of your way or take a wrong turn or exit on the freeway to bump into them don’t you? Or maybe you sometimes see them get shot by scared witless policemen in their efforts to “protect and serve” as you channel surf on your cable TV. So really, what more can we do besides cut those checks?…and I mean cut as in off… not as in… write.

But who are these undeserving poor that beguile and bewilder our great United States of America with their hands out for more and more of our hard earned money every day? Who are these 50 million or so ingrates who can’t stand on their own two feet? These huddled masses who are bankrupting the richest citizens of the richest country in the world? Which, by the way, they aren’t because in case you missed it at the beginning of this blog post, we don’t really give them anything, because we, in all actuality and factuality, already are the STINGIEST, wealthy country in the world!

But I digress…

Because, who are these money grubbers anyway?!

Well… 35% of the 50 million or so poverty stricken Americans are kids! They are all under the age of 18 so how much of a slacker can they all be? Are we going to call 17.5 million children parasites and undeserving moochers for whom there must be no place in our society because they don’t pull their own weight in this world? Yet? They haven’t even graduated high school.

Another 10% of the poorest Americans are elderly. They are all over 65 years of age and can’t work or shouldn’t have to work anymore. How much financial independence and personal accountability do we require from those who may not have had any pensions or 401K plans during their working years or who saw them swallowed up by banks or government cuts or by the financial sector’s mismanagement? Can we give these folks a break and help them out with food stamps, medical and housing assistance or is there simply no room in our society for this particular type of societal parasite? You know…the old and feeble kind.

So that accounts for almost half of all the poor citizens in our country: old folks and children. But did you know that another 31% of the poor in our country are poor because they have mental and/or physical disabilities that prevent them from working or that caused them to lose their jobs in the first place? They might be veterans, paraplegics, developmentally challenged, perhaps those who suffered on the job injuries where no workman’s comp. was in effect or those who were suffering from severe mental incapacitates when their hospitals were closed during the cutbacks of the Reagan years and beyond. Are these citizens to be considered freeloaders also? Lazy work shirkers on the public dole? Irresponsible no-gooders who need to have their food stamp purchases monitored lest they buy an occasional steak or seafood out of season so that we do-gooders can treat ourselves to another tax cut?

A full 76% of those who live below the poverty line here in the United States of America are either children, senior citizens or disabled…that’s 3 out of 4… and what of the other 24%? Mostly they are comprised of mothers: more than likely they are single, divorced or unwed women with children (and a man on the lam from his child support)

And all together they comprise the Approximately 50 million people who can’t make ends meet in this, our Land of Plenty. Sure it’s a big number…but we’re a big country…and a rich country…the richest country! One that can afford to spend 20+% of its budget on blowing the citizens of other countries up and then debate whether or not we should be spending more on such endeavors.

But when it comes to helping our own poorest of citizens, the great majority of whom are either too young, too old, too disabled… or mothers trying to make ends meet…we wag our fingers and say, “We’ve given you enough! What more do you want?”  And yet, We as a nation are last in the world at helping our fellow citizens get back up on their feet now, so really, How much crueler and indifferent can we be?!

Well…The United States also has the highest poverty rate among the major industrialized nations of the world! And Our poverty rate for children is just as bad. So that means that we are first in creating poor people and last in helping them! Do we now need to make sure that we constantly refer to the poor in America as Parasites? Fraudsters? Morally bankrupt? Undeserving? Lazy? Cheats? Thieves?…

Do we really need to add insult to penury?

Because after all. Haven’t we fortunate Americans…God Bless Us…done enough already?

Making America Safe…

20 Jul

https://i2.wp.com/i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2016/images/01/18/gfx-isis-attacks-northamerica.png

And From Whom?

According to CNN, since declaring its caliphate in June 2014, the self-proclaimed Islamic State has conducted or inspired at least 126 terrorist attacks in 23 countries other than Iraq and Syria. Those attacks have killed at least 1,735 people and injured thousands more.

In North America there have been 7 attacks inspired by ISIS

On October 23, 2014 A man with a hatchet attacked four police officers in New York. Police said the attacker, was self-radicalized and believed to have been inspired by ISIS. On May 3, 2015 — Two men opened fire outside a Prophet Mohamed cartoon contest in a Dallas suburb. The gunmen wounded a security guard before police shot and killed them. The attack is believed to have been inspired by ISIS. On November 4, 2015 — A University of California student stabbed four people before being shot to death by police. The FBI concluded the attack appeared to be terror-inspired. On December 2, 2015 — Tashfeen Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, shot 14 people to death and injured 21 others at a gathering of local government health workers in San Bernardino, California. On January 8, 2016 — A man was arrested after a Philadelphia police officer was shot and wounded. The assailant later claimed to have committed the attack on ISIS’ behalf…
And On June 12, 2016 — A gunman killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The shooter, was killed by police three hours after taking hostages in the club. He was a 27-year old U.S. citizen of Afghan descent who pledged allegiance to ISIS in a 911 phone call during the siege. The attack is believed to have been inspired by ISIS.
There is no doubt that these have all been horrible attacks carried out in the name of a Radical Islamic organization, leaving 63 dead and 79 injured throughout North America. Many Americans are outraged and want these attacks avenged, no matter the cost and no matter how long it takes. America’s 2 political parties will be debating 24/7 how to solve this crisis for the next 5 months and beyond.
Earlier this year 100,000 citizens were discovered poisoned with lead in the Michigan city of Flint. The Governor of Michigan was hoping to save money for the state by rerouting the cities perfectly clean water supply through a corrosively polluted river and into the cities aging lead lined pipes. This went on for nearly 2 years before the state would admit to any wrong doing on their part.
We hear about ISIS every day on the news but Flint, Michigan? Not so much anymore. The Governor of Michigan just had to say “My bad” and everyone in America seems to be satisfied even though the residents of Flint will never, ever, recover from their lead poisoning.
Now Imagine for one second that ISIS had been responsible for the poisoning of 100,000 American citizens over the course of 2 years while American state government did nothing to stop it even though they had been aware of it all along.
That’s all I have…just imagine that…
