Some Things You Accept; Some Things You Don’t Do

Trump The Cowardly Basement Bully: We’ve Got Real Problems

kimThere are many things that bother me about Trump being our new president. Perhaps the worst is I believe he is a coward. Yes, the worse kind of coward. The type I call the basement hero who hides in the basement of his house and tells how outrageous things are but when in a face-to-face meeting with one of the objects of his scorn melts like the Wicked Witch of the West after encountering water.

Trump has no basement to live in but he has the equivalent. This is his little device attached to the Internet which allows him to tweet. He can be big and bold on the tweeter but when in a one on one situation he becomes a Casper Milktoast or a Shivering Sadie. All his life he has hidden behind lawyers and been in situations where he has not had to tell a person who was on an equal basis with him difficult news to that person’s face.

America: We Hardly Knew Ya: Welcome to the World of Trump

The ride with the shortest lines at disneyworld...

I’ve written about this before. I suggested that the way the main stream media has ganged up on Trump like on no other candidate for presidency before was probably a good reason for people to vote for him. The Washington Post, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and the like had nothing good to say about him. On any day during the campaign you could read a half-dozen articles telling us something bad about him.

I guess it shows how out of touch with the American people the media has become. As you know the media’s weeping and gnashing of teeth has continued since his election. With his every move there are outcries in these papers which seems somewhat a waste of time. The people who read them for the most part are the converted to their anti-Trump stance so they are writing to an audience that does not have to be convinced.

A most remarkable fact that I read coming up to the election was that Trump was endorsed by only two papers in the country. Considering how many papers endorsed his opponent one has to conclude that newspapers have lost their influence. More and more people are getting their news from other sources.

The Selling of America:Donald and Friends Make A Killing

Trump plans to sell America. I don’t mean in the traditional manner by telling of our freedoms and values but literally. He is planning to do what the Russians did under Putin which is to turn over public assets to private individuals. You saw how well that plan worked for Putin; both he and his close buddies became billionaires. No wonder Trump admires him so much.

One thing we can be thankful for is that unlike in Russia where almost all things of value were owned by the state many of the assets in the United States cannot be sold by Trump because they are already owned privately and most operated in a fairly proper manner. The reason that the operate like that is because over time rules and regulations governing their behavior (like child labor laws, workplace safety laws, food safety and protection from harmful drugs) have been developed and the companies forced to follow them. Trump’s plan to remove many might be goof for the industrialists but not the public. Keep in mind our history has been a battle to restrain corporations from fleecing the public by taking shortcuts.

Why You Should Be Truly Scared of Trump

The United States has not had a person anything like Trump in the president’s seat.  Those who think he is another Reagan are deluding themselves. Reagan had a history of political involvement and looked upon America as a force of good in the world suggesting we were an example for the rest of the world – the Puritan “city on a hill” which God allowed to exist for the betterment of mankind and which He would rain down His fury should we not follow his commandments.

Trump has no prior public service. Worse he has never shown a concern for other than himself and he looks inward to the country not thinking that it should be an example to the world but a nation like those of the worst that exist run by dictators interested only in what it can greedily grab.

In your wildest dreams you could never imagine Donald Trump telling Khruschev to tear down the East Berlin Wall. Think of that. Reagan cared for the people imprisoned behind the Soviet wall where Trump has not manifested any interest in any others beyond our borders and even within our nation it will turn out that it is for a limited few.

The Three Academic Amigos: Tulis, Levinson, and Suri: Texas Professors Trying To Destroy Democracy

filipino1Tulis is a professor at the University of Texas at Austin; Levinson at the University of Texas Law School; and Suri is also at the University of Texas. Their recent article  in the NY Daily News tells all you need to know about the disconnect between the liberal academics and the rest of the people. Suri tweeted about the article saying: Our effort to try and save the republic from Trump. Please circulate widely.”

Now I must remind you that Donald Trump although not winning as many votes as Hillary Clinton did win the votes of the majority of the electoral college voters. Under our system of government that means he is the president-elect. You may not like it but that is how we have done things for most of our existence as a country. Now the three amigos have come up with what they think is a brilliant idea: the electors in the Electoral College should vote for someone other than Trump.

Maybe It’s The Start of Something Good! Farewell Fidel

() HareYes, it was very good new to wake up Saturday morning and to hear that a man who was as bad as Joe Stalin had finally gone to his reward. It is amazing how long evil can exist. Uncle Joe made it to 74 years and Evil Fidel made it to 90. As they say the good die young.

It will be interesting to see how the liberal press treats the tyrant who imprisoned his people since he took power back in 1959. There is an article here  the puts his actions into their proper perspective.

Yet in America, and other places of the world, there were individuals who thought he was a good leader. Agh! It makes one sick. But then again there were people who were very happy with Joe Stalin; one person once said to me that all his evil actions were good because he helped develop Russia into a strong state.
