Hi Humans,

Don't be shy. If you want to comment on my blog entries, please do so. You don't have to be a dog to say what you think. or if you have a pet dog and want to have your dog speak for you, that's also OK. I would like to hear from you or your dog.

Hello Readers,
I have sad news to report. My dog Chloe has passed away from complications of diabetes.
As you might have guessed, I have been  writing my ideas through Chloe. After all she was a dog and could not speak or type. But she did have a personality, and if she could have spoken, I think maybe her thoughts would have been something like what has been written in this blog.
At first I thought I would end this blog with her death, but I know the ideas that were spoken in this blog have been the same ideas that so many (in fact most according to the result of the recent popular vote) are thinking. I must let the ideals of Chloe continue to live in a sense by continuing to promote her (my) ideas, but now in my own name.
I will continue to promote gun control and fight back against the NRA. I will continue to promote common sense rational ideas concerning domestic and international politics, especially in the years on the horizon which appear to portend bigotry, authoritarianism, backwardness, and insanity.

Hi American Humans,
Donald Trump’s recent selection of Dr. Tom Price to be Secretary of Health and Human Services has caused me to wonder what has become of you humans. Dr. Price, as expected by a radical right wing Republican, favors destroying Obamacare and promoting the concept that access to medical care is a privilege rather than a right. He also wants to privatize Medicare, and he opposes gun control. All of these are to be expected from a Trump appointment.

But Dr. Price goes a step further. He is a member of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). The journal of that organization is the Journal of the American Physicians and Surgeons (JPandS). Besides being an extreme right wing organization, AAPS opposes evidence based medicine (medical care based on clinical studies, in other words statistically significant scientific medicine). They promote medical care based only on anecdotal reports (single case reports). In modern medicine, anecdotal reports can be the basis for then subsequently doing controlled scientific studies. They are hardly a substitute for evidence based medicine. Basing all of medicine on anecdotal reports was how it was done in the 19th Century and earlier but not today. Examples of AAPS ideas are opposition to vaccination, opposition to electronic health records, and denying the HIV virus as the cause of AIDS. Their journal is not listed in PUBMED (the NIH search engine for valid health research) because it is not a valid peer reviewed scientific journal. So now the Secretary of Health and Human Services of the United States of America is going to be a member of a pseudo-scientific quackish fringe organization. This is typical Trumpism, a fancy cover but rotten inside. If Dr.Price is to represent health care in America, he should resign from and denounce the AAPS.

P.S. Dad who is a physician helped me with this one.

Dear Human Donald Trump,
Let me give you some advice since you are slated to become President of the USA soon, and you say you want to unite America. I know I’m just a dog, but as a domesticated dog I am an astute observer of human behavior. After all, what else do we pets have to do?

You say you want to unify America. I will believe it when I see it. Certainly, your behavior during the campaign did not indicate so. You insulted more than half of the people in America. You can’t spit on people and expect them to love you. So you have to admit that you insulted women, minorities, people of various religions, Gays, and others. Then you have to apologize to them. And you have to reverse yourself and repudiate the bigots in your base, the KKK who support you, the alt right in your inner circle, and the people at your rallies who shouted Nazi slogans like “lugenpresse” and “JewSA.” You also need to admit to your lies about the press being rigged and apologize to the journalists. Also you need to apologize to Hillary Clinton for the lies you told about her.

You also have to repudiate the Tea Party Republicans like Pence and Paul Ryan who want to eliminate taxes on the rich and make the poor and middle class pay the tab.

You also have to stop your love affair with Putin and reassure Europe that America isn’t going to sell them out. You might also admit to whatever ties you have with Putin and Assange concerning hacking into the emails of Clinton and the Democratic Party to get you elected.
Oh, one more thing. Promote stronger gun control laws. How can you honestly pretend to “keep America safe” when you promote a gun anarchy which gives terrorists and screwballs easy access to military style guns to massacre Americans.

Maybe if you do all those things, you might be able to say that you can unite America. But then would you still be Donald Trump?


Hi Humans,
Peaceful protest to let Donald know what the American people think of him is good. Just don't hurt anyone or break anything. That doesn't help. If we dogs had hands and could carry signs, I would be out there waving a sign myself. Donald plays to the crowd. This crowd is critical of his racism, bullying, and his Fascist friends. Let him know that more than half of America opposes him. Keep up the pressure for America, for freedom, for the right cause.

Hi Human Democrats,
So now that Trump will be president, what will become of Obamacare (Affordable health Care)? Well, Obamacare appears to be safe. Trump is now saying he wants to keep a number of Obamacare ideas like not denying insurance for existing health problems and providing insurance for all American humans. But that is Obamacare. Trump says he wants to make it work better, but glitches and necessary adjustments in the system were expected by President Obama, and Hillary Clinton would have made adjustments had she been elected. The importance of Obamacare is not the details, but the fact that you have started on the road of sensible distribution of health care which the Republicans would not have started if left alone. Before Obamacare, Tea party Republicans considered health care a privilege rather than a right. That meant if one could not afford healthcare, one went without care or to a hospital emergency room, which was poor medical care and contributed to driving up the cost of health care. If Trump were to dump Obamacare as some of his Tea Party friends would like, his core blue color working class supporters, many of whom depend on Obamacare would get a sudden kick in the pants. Trump can’t afford to do that.

There are other aspects of a Trump presidency that are more troubling. I will address those later.

Hi Humans of America,
Last night I dreamt that left of center Hillary Clinton won the election and the Republican party reorganized into a right of center party. The future would be two parties debating the real issues in a civil manner, one putting forward progressive ideas and the other saying “just a minute there” to keep progress from running off the tracks. Then I woke up. The dream ended and I entered the nightmare of Donald Trump as president.

Hi Human Donald Trump Faithful Supporters,
Donald and his Breitbart friends are planning to make money with a "news" media to stir up and represent angry humans. That media will make money from this new movement. They have assigned a dollar value to you because to Donald you are a commodity, just like the students of phony Trump University. Only humans would allow themselves to be played like that. We dogs are smarter.
