Trump Comes To Town

I'm a very slow reader. When a blustering Trump first hit the political road I thought he was some kind of joke with his ridiculous red hair mop and a Jersey boy gutter speech pattern. During the following weeks he firmly, and not very politely, proceeded to accuse the establishment of gross corruption and dereliction of duty. He put his clumsy and angry voice to all of the national problems he could think of.  He focused on very progressive liberal Democrats whose actions have led us to the mess we find ourselves in. So sayeth Mr. Trump.  He went on to establish his (Starwars) ambitious  plan to:  
  • 1. To take back the White House from the
  •      Obama/Hillary types
  • 2.  To shake up and remove the corrupt politicians from the establishment
  • 3.  Return America to invincible stature among the worlds nations.
  • 4.  Bring back monetary support of our enemies. (Egypt, for example?)
  • 5.  Withdraw our military protection of nations that can protect themselves. 
  • 6.  And from nations that do not support our humanitarian efforts in the world.
  • 7.  Temporarily slow or halt immigration and return the control of borders law.
  • 8    Provide a timed path where illegal immigrants can become Americans. 
  • 9.  Deport those who do not complete the path. 
  • 10. Return to a planned immigration quota system.
  • 11. Insist on English as America's only official language.
  • 12. Eliminate attacks on the second amendment. 
  • 13. Prohibit private ownership of explosive weapons used by our military forces.
  • 14. Restrict rapid fire weapons by additional security and increased taxation.
The Democrat Party candidate Hillary Clinton, being a proven liar, accused criminal, and military secrets abuser, simply can not be elected President.  It is still months before the election. The loudest, most personal, and ugliest primary season in memory is over. Hillary is the Democratic candidate.

The Republican Party candidate Donald Trump, comes across as vulgar and crude. He is clearly not a polished politician, diplomat or scholar, and he apparently knows little or nothing about our military. Potentially Donald Trump brings a few things to the job. 

  • He is smart, articulate and a good negotiator. 
  • He has valid credentials managing and administrating a business.
  • He bends liberal when necessary, but is independent or conservative more often.
  • He has not been proven a liar or criminal. 
  • He is considered to be honest. 
  • He thinks much of our foreign aide is wasted. 
  • He believes in Capitalism. 
  • He knows our income tax system is no longer fair to all.
  • He knows that the American election systems are broken.
  • He understands that our three political divisions are no longer equal.
  • He sees great merit and relevance in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

All things considered, Donald Trump is the most suited Candidate for the office.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 


For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…
