I'm just a WYSIWYG kind of guy … who wears his heart on his sleeve.


LAST NcogsinwallIGHT, I watched a news report of DONALD TRUMP … at a rally in NEVADA… OMG !!!!!!    Are you serious America ?? Do you really want this BUFFOON, this obnoxious, hate preacher and spouter of egocentriTrumpc fueled scare mongering rhetoric as your next President ??????   He seems to specialise in ‘scapegoating’, he excels at blaming other cultures for ALL the ills of American society. I tell you what America, as a citizen of Europe, that guy scares the sh1t out of me !!!!! (Mind you, it hasn’t been the first president that has scared it out of a lot of Europeans, Reagan and George W Bush did a similar scare job) …but this Guy Trump with his childish personal attacks on his opponents is the limit. I mean if he can’t take his opponents principles and construct a argument against them without resorting to statements like, “if he was here I’d punch him on the nose”, or initiating vile personal attacks on his opponent’s family, then to my mind he has no place in politics, let alone WORLD POLITICS. Trump would very quickly isolate America on the world stage, with even the UK putting more distance  between our countries.

Can you imagine Mr Trump with his finger on the ‘button’ ??? saying to Mr Putin on the ‘hot line’, “Listen here commie, get out of the Ukraine now or we’ll bomb the hell out of you” …. and slamming the phone down on him. Which is just what he said (less the commie bit) about Syria ! there would be no peace process, just ignorance and belligerence….and war.

I really don’t understand why the American people can embrace such a man and want him for the president…maybe I can to some extent understand, after all the German people rallied round Herr Hitler because he promised them an end to the strife caused by the Jews..and the Communists..and the Slovacks… and every one else that wasn’t Aryan. Much like Trump with his promise to build a wall cutting Mexico off AND making them pay for it, because they are taking our jobs, not paying taxes and bringing crime to the streets of America …… so yes, I can see why some people may be attracted to Trump…His vision of America is Sooooo different from the vision your forefathers had when they threw off the yolk of British oppression in 1783, and it doesn’t look to me to be a nice place to be in, a Trump style America.  Charisma wins converts (as history shows) and if you have a good speech writer to boot, then you could have a winning formular…God forbid !!

At the end of the day, even though you threw off the yolk of British oppression, it had allready been replaced by the oppression and near  anillalation  of the indigenous occupants, the native Americans. However,  that is another story for another articogsinwallcle on this blog.

If I have ruffled a few feathers with my words, then I don’t apologise, I say what I mean. All I am expressing is my dismay at how the ‘civilised’ American people can take to their hearts  a man so full of hatred (and money) I feel they are being led by the nose by emotive hate speech. IF he finds his way into the White House, it won’t be a case o
f GOD BLESS AMERICA…it will be a case if GOD HELP AMERICA……. AND THE REST …..explosives05

  1. A lot of people on WordPress would agree with you judging by posts I’ve read here and comments I’ve made on similar lines. But he’s clever in his own twisted way – like Hitler as you said. ‘Make America Great Again’ is very seductive, and I’m constantly surprised at how little a lot of Americans know about the rest of the world, which has to make it easier to blame everyone else for their internal problems. Makes me glad that like you, we have a constitutional monarchy which prevents much power being vested in any one citizen.
    Do you ever watch ‘The Last Leg’? (Channel 4) Trump is one of their regular jokes.

      Thanks for your insight Helen and yes I do try to see as many ‘Last Legs’ as possible. Your point about a lot of Americans knowing little of the world is valid. Insularity is a problem in all cultures. I love your ‘scribblefest’ and the way you write 🌹🌹🌹

  2. This is a frightening time in the US, Pat. I never thought I’d live to see a day when such a group of buffoons would take center stage in a presidential election. Palin was bad enough. But Trump and his ilk make me feel like I woke up suddenly in a dystopian world. It inspired a poem that I didn’t post. Here’s the relevant verse:

    Would-be queens and kings snivel
    Giving voice to cruelty and lies.
    While they utter their mean-spirited drivel
    Another innocent child dies.

    Trump effectively appeals to the fear and suffering of the working class here, products of an inferior educational system that has fed them only untruth and propaganda about history and the world. Sadly, I suspect that if Hillary is the one the democrats choose to run against him, he just might win. I plan to get a passport just in case…

      I wondered if I might get a load of flak for posting my views about Trump and his ‘playing on fear’ politics… Not got any yet though!! It’s the same the world over and throughout history that people like Trump and as I mentioned ,Hitler and any other right winger with a power lust can lead poorly educated working class people down the path of Fascism…my goodness he needs to be stopped in his tracks. It’s really quite sad how he and others like him, can be so popular with people who need a scapegoat to blame for the establishment’s failings…quite sad. God help the world if he does get to the White House … Anyway Carol, I hope he doesn’t cause you too many sleepless nights .. Mind you, saying that, I AM beginning to feel worried, what with him and another buffoon, Boris Johnson, mounting a challenge to the much hated figure of David Cameron for the next PM. I’ll start planning a long vacation .. To Mars !!!😱

      1. Sadly, Pat, I know good-hearted people who plan to vote for Trump. There’s nothing I can think of to do or say that will change this…
