Then Trump Came For The Mexicans...
By Ernest Stewart

"The point is that you can't be too greedy." ~~~ Donald Trump

As you know, I have never had a problem with speaking my mind, and that's on any subject that I'm aware of. Politics, which I have been studying since the 1950s is my second favorite subject; after music which I have studying even longer! Ergo I know a nightmare when I see one and believe me folks a waking nightmare thanks to Donald is what we all have to look forward to. However, this week I thought I'd let Trump's nominations speak for themselves! From which you may draw your own conclusions!

For example for Defense Trump has picked retired Marine corp general James (Mad Dog) Mattis and Mad Dog is a name that James has earned, but let's hear why from James' own mouth...
"Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet."
Does that send a chill down your spine? Here's more...
"There are some people who think you have to hate them in order to shoot them. I don't think you do. It's just business."

"There is nothing better than getting shot at and missed. It's really great."

"You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it's quite fun to fight them, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people."

"The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot."

"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you fuck with me, I'll kill you all."
Then Trump chose for Housing and Urban Development head Ben Carson. Let's hear what Ben has to say...
"I mean, [our society is] very much like Nazi Germany. And I know you're not supposed to say 'Nazi Germany,' but I don't care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe."

"Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight -and when they come out, they're gay."

"Grabbing the camping knife I carried in my back pocket, I snapped it open and lunged for the boy who had been my friend. With all the power of my young muscles, I thrust the knife toward his belly. The knife hit his big, heavy ROTC buckle with such force that the blade snapped and dropped to the ground."

"You know, Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. And it is, in a way - it is slavery in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government."

"My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain. Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs' graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don't think it'd just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain."

"Well, I mean, it's even more ridiculous than that 'cause our solar system, not to mention the universe outside of that, is extraordinarily well organized, to the point where we can predict 70 years away when a comet is coming. Now that type of organization to just come out of an explosion? I mean, you want to talk about fairy tales, that is amazing."

"There is no doubt that this senseless violence is breathtaking -but I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away. Serious people seek serious solutions."

"I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that."
Next the Donald selected the butcher of Fallujah, retired Marine general John Kelly to be his head at Fatherland Security. Did I mention that John and Mad Dog are old bosom-buddies who take equal delight in killing people, especially Muslims, but what really scares John is refugee children running for their lives from the CIA's fascist gangs running amok in Central America. Have no doubt that Johnny will build Donnie's wall, a 100 feet high if necessary!
"We're the United States Marine Corps. We took Iwo Jima. Baghdad ain't shit.

"Our enemy fights for an ideology based on an irrational hatred of who you are. Make no mistake about that no matter what certain elements of our 'chattering class' relentlessly churn out."
As a member of the chattering class I guess I better watch my Ps & Qs and keep my powder dry, lest I end up in a Happy Camp! Next Trump came for the reporters!

Then Donnie picked Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to serve as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. You may recall that Pruitt has been a vocal critic of EPA regulations and defender of fossil fuel interests. I wonder if his reasons could be that the oil companies own Scott lock, stock and barrel; so who better to run the the EPA than someone who knows exactly what the corporations want. I'm pretty sure that Scott could be convinced to lead the fight against renewable energy if the price was right! Here's his thoughts on the EPA from several lawsuits filed against the EPA by Scott against the burden of keeping the water clean and not using US waters as a sewer:
"Respect for private property rights have allowed our nation to thrive, but with the recently finalized rule, farmers, ranchers, developers, industry and individual property owners will now be subject to the unpredictable, unsound, and often byzantine regulatory regime of the EPA. I, and many other local, state and national leaders across the country, made clear to the EPA our concerns and opposition to redefining the 'Waters of the U.S.'

"However, the EPA's brazen effort to stifle private property rights has left Oklahoma with few options to deter the harm that its rule will do."
There's not a lot that I could add to that, except to say, we are soooo screwed, Amwerica!
