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.

Hi Humans,
Come one! Come all! Come see Professor Trump and his traveling road show as they arrive victoriously in Mexico. Clowns, jugglers, beautiful undocumented models from the Trump Modeling Agency. All the wonders of the universe will be revealed by the all knowing Professor Trump, glorious leader of the infamous Trump University. Professor Trump might even reveal his secret income tax returns for your viewing pleasure. And of course the humans of Mexico will loudly proclaim, "Welcome Professor Trump! Build your wall as high as the Heavens! We will stand in awe of your great achievement!"
You know, Professor Trump, you can fool your gullible followers. But I am a dog, and a dog is not so easily fooled.

Hi Humans,
You know we dogs don't have facial expressions like you humans do. You can force yourself to look happy when you're sad or sad when you're happy. But our dog faces are the same no matter what. We wag out tails to show emotion, and we never fake it. Now look at Trump. He puts on  that fake serious face which he thinks makes him look presidential. And his faithful believe him. But you  can't fool a dog, at least not this one. Trumps pseudo-serious face is so obviously fake that one wonders how any human (with your supposedly big brain) can take Trump seriously.

Hi Humans,
President Obama saved capitalism from the economic collapse brought on by the economic anarchy of the preceding administration. Since then the President has slowly improved the economy by reining in the quick buck artists who took advantage of the preceding anarchy. Hillary Clinton will continue to grow the economy in an orderly fashion in a way that will benefit all Americans, not just a few billionaires at the top. That is why many humans in corporate America favor Clinton over Trump. They realize that an orderly economy is in their best interests, and they realize that benefitting the people at all levels of the economic scale is good for business. They are beginning to realize that the chaos of economic anarchy as proposed by Trump and the Tea Party are not so good after all.

Hello Professor Trump,
You claim you are a hard negotiator and that you always make the best deal. Yet, you have already conceded Russia's annexation of Crimea. Now it is unlikely that Ukraine will get Crimea back, but a strong negotiator would not just hand it over before even starting a negotiation. At least you would want a firm commitment and action by Russia that it will not support the rebels in eastern Ukraine and that Ukraine's eastern border is fixed. You might also demand that Russia give a substantial sum of money to Ukraine in return for Crimea. And Russia should understand that any violation of Ukraine's eastern border or of any country on its western border would put the status of Crimea back into question. Also this should be done in consultation with NATO including the Eastern European NATO members.
Otherwise how can you claim to be such a great negotiator?

Professor Trump,
When are we going to see your tax returns. If there were something there that you could be proud of, a loud mouth like you would be blurting it out ad nauseam. Obviously you must be hiding something. Maybe you can pull the wool over the eyes of your gullible faithful, but even a little dog like me can see what a fake you are.

Hi Professor Trump,

You said in one of your blurts that as president you would do away with the “Death Tax” to help the Middle Class. I assume you mean the inheritance tax. Are you aware that the inheritance tax in the USA today is on an inheritance of at least $5.45 million for an individual and at least $10.9 million for a married couple. Either you are woefully uninformed or (more likely) you are trying to pull a fast one on your faithful followers (like you did on the Trump University students). I suspect that most of your blue collar white followers do not have 5.45 or 10.9 million dollars to pass on to their children, but your super-rich friends do. If there is no inheritance tax for the super-rich billionaires, that money will have to come from someone else, and who might be the someone else? Of course, the guy who has less than 5 or 10 million dollars to pass on to his children, in other words your gullible followers.

Dear Human Professor Trump,

You claim to be the “Law and Order Candidate?” If that were true you would favor gun control. Instead you pander to the NRA and the gun anarchists. MORE GUNS = MORE GUN MURDERS. The USA is not a reality show. Humans and other creatures who are shot dead by gun violence don’t get up when the show is over. They are just dead. I think you, Professor Trump, would be better described as the Lawless and Disorder Candidate.

Dear Professor Trump,

In a recent speech to humans in an industrial area impacted by changing technology, you promoted a return to coal as an energy source. Professor, you must realize that the emissions from fossil fuels (especially cough, cough coal) are making the air less breathable and are driving global warming which in turn is creating droughts and by melting the polar ice caps is raising the water level of the oceans which will obliterate coastal lands, not to mention other environmental catastrophes which will impact on the food supply. But Professor Trump, you are always looking for the quick fix instead of the long term solution. Once your fellow humans are smacked in the face by the disaster you have created and can no longer deny it, you will be gone and they will have to run up hill to fix the mess. This is an issue that especially concerns me because we dogs have to breathe the same air as you humans and drink the same water as you humans.

Anyway, the humans who have lost jobs in the coal industry have lost those jobs because coal is being replaced by new and better technologies. That is what capitalism and free markets are. The answer is not to go backward. Instead as new technologies emerge the answer for the displaced workers is to retrain or move to where the jobs are. So Professor Trump, I invite you to come over to the Little Dog University, where you will find a more up to date curriculum than what is offered at Trump University.

Hi Humans,

To understand Trump, remember he is a reality TV human. Reality TV blurs the difference between fiction and reality. In reality TV, reality is manipulated to attract the interest of the audience and in that way make money for the humans who produce the show. That is what Trump has recently done to the Republican Party and is attempting to do to the American people. That is what Professor Trump did to the students of Trump University. Trump University was a reality show that bore some appearance of a school, but was actually a sham. So, American Humans, do you want to live in a Trump pseudo-reality America or the real America that Hillary Clinton is best qualified to lead?

Hi Humans,

Since I am a dog I can’t vote, but if I were a human and could vote I would vote for Hillary Clinton. She is honest, intelligent, and focused. Trump tells any lie that pops into his head, pretends to be smarter than he is, and appears to suffer from attention deficit. Hillary promotes an economic policy that combines a long term strategy of controlled sustainable business growth which includes all strata of the community. Trump promotes an economy for the quick buck artists and smoke and mirrors for the common person. Hillary represents the best in America. Trump panders to the bigots. Hillary acknowledges mistakes and learns from them. Trump thinks he is perfect, never admits to doing anything wrong, and blames all his failures on others (“the system is rigged”). So, Humans, who do you think is the most qualified to be president of the USA? Isn’t it obvious?

Hi Humans,

I believe that Black lives matter (as I believe that all life matters). A few days ago a group that calls itself Black Lives Matter wrote a platform, and in that platform they accused the State of Israel of “genocide” against the Palestinian people. As a Jewish dog (I live in a Jewish home), I must take issue with that part of their platform.

First of all, it is blatantly untrue. Genocide as committed by Germany against the Jews of Europe killed 6 million Jewish humans and was intended to eradicate all the Jews in Europe and ultimately in the World. The Ottoman Empire committed genocide in rounding up and killing 1.5 million Armenians in an organized manner. No such organized massive killing has occurred in Israel/Palestine. There have been repeated conflicts, usually started by the Palestinians and finished by Israel, in which there have been civilian deaths on both sides but not on a scale which could be called genocide. There have been more deaths on the Palestinian side. However it is not a game which has to be evenly counted. There is guilt on both sides.

Second of all, what does Israel/Palestine have to do with Black Lives Matter? There are Black Jews on the Israel side and Black Moslems on the Palestine side. Neither side has a racial monopoly. The Whites who make up the majorities on both sides are probably more closely related to each other racially than to any other humans in the world. All the Israelis and Palestinians, Black or White, probably are related historically. So the Israel/Palestine dispute is not racial. Also, why do you want to alienate Jewish Americans, most of whom are on your side?

Third, why do you only single out the faults of Israel? I will concede that faults exist. I am no fan of the settler movement on the West Bank. But I did not see in the platform any mention of the murder and mayhem committed by ISIS against anyone who does not toe the line, or of the government of Syria that has killed thousands of its citizens, or of Russia that has propped up that Syrian government and helped in the killing. The list of evils in the world goes on and on but left out of your platform. The occupation of the West Bank is not a good thing, but at the moment it is a place of tranquility in comparison to many of the nearby Arab countries.

Fourth, maybe I missed it, but I did not read anything about gun control in the platform. Any proposed solution that leaves out gun control is not a solution but just venting. Strict gun laws would go a long way in saving Black lives (also any other life). A policeman in a high crime area would have a less itchy trigger finger if he did not have to worry that the citizen being detained might be about to shoot him. Also fewer Black citizens would find themselves in the cross fire of gang warfare. And don’t give me that Second Amendment crap. That’s just code for gun anarchy so the gun lobby can make a quick buck.

So Humans (Black or White), you probably don’t want to take advice from a little Jewish dog like me, but that’s what I think.

Professor Trump,
I recommend that you read this excerpt from
All I Really Need To Know
I Learned In Kindergarten

by Robert Fulghum

"Share everything.

Play fair.

Don't hit people.

Put things back where you found them.

Clean up your own mess.

Don't take things that aren't yours.

Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.


Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.

Live a balanced life - learn some and think some
and draw and paint and sing and dance and play
and work every day some.

Take a nap every afternoon.

When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic,
hold hands, and stick together

Be aware of wonder.
Remember the little seed in the styrofoam cup:
The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody
really knows how or why, but we are all like that.

Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even
the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die.
So do we.

And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books
and the first word you learned - the biggest
word of all - LOOK. "

I highlighted the points which I think might benefit you the most. Maybe if you quit Trump University and repeated kindergarten, you might bone up on the points that you seemed to have missed.
