America is Great Because it is Good

If you thought last week was wacky, just wait'll you see what happened this week. The week started off with Marco Rubio implying Donald Trump had a small you-know-what - whizzer, schlong - because he has small hands. Curing the Thursday night debate Trump "guaranteed" us that the size of his, you know, one-eyed salami torpedo, wasn't a problem Such is the state of the Republican campaign. David Duke, former Grand Lizard, er, uh, Wizard of the KKK endorsed Trump and said he was their kind of guy. Donald Trump was given multiple opportunities to disavow the KKK and David Duke and couldn't bring himself to do it. A newspaper report surface from the the 1930s stating that Trump's father Fred was arrested at a KKK rally. Perhaps the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Trump's son later went on a white racist radio station and gave an interview. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was moved to hold a press conference to state Republicans must reject bigotry and racism, but I think he had his fingers crossed. More protesters were assaulted at Trump rallies. I've now seen video compilations and they are reminiscent of the early days of fascism in German and Italy. * * * * * * * * * * On the Democratic side, Hillary won 7 primaries on Super Tuesday and Bernie won 4. Both claimed their victories and vowed to carry on. * * * * * * * * * * I like the first part of Hillary's campaign words that America never stopped being great, but I don't like the "make it whole again." My brother Jerry lifted up the words of Alexis de Tocqueville: "America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great." So if any Hillary fans are reading this perhaps you can pass this along as her campaign slogan: "America never stopped being great; we need to keep it good" (or some variation on that). * * * * * * * * Trump made more threats to leave the Republican party and run as a Third Party candidate. * * * * * * * I don't think Donald Trump wants to make America good. He wants to make it nasty and mean as do the other Repub candidates. * * * * * * * * I'll be caucusing for Bernie Sanders Saturday, and I believe both Hillary and Bernie want to make America good. * * * * * * * * * Mitt Romney gave a speech today in Utah and lambasted Donald Trump as a phony and a fraud and a con-man. Nebraska's Senator Ben Sasse said he won't vote for Trump, and Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader said he may campaign against Trump if he wins the nomination in order to save the Senate. Dozens of Republican national security experts warned that Trump would make the country less safe and that his foreign policy would be a disaster. * * * * * * * * * Donald Trump did finally clarify what he meant when he said he wouldn't let people die in the street after he dismantled Obamacare -- he would have roving crews pull them into alleyways. * * * * * * * * I found it really difficult to see the humor this week................perhaps next week.
