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,

Congratulations to the New York city and state police, to the New Jersey state police, to the FBI, and anyone else involved in catching the terrorist who set off the bombs in New York and New Jersey a few weeks ago. This illustrates how diversity and tolerance help keep America safe. In Europe which has a long history of isolating minorities, the radical Islamic terrorists are able to hide in their separated communities. In America, which is a nation of immigrants, immigrant minorities are accepted and reciprocate with loyalty to America. The bomber was found in a doorway. He had nowhere to hide. Now if only we could end the gun anarchy, that would make America even more safe.

Hi Hillary,
Congratulations on a successful showing at the debate last night. You appeared calm, comfortable, focused, and presidential. Trump appeared uncomfortable, fidgety, defensive, and his usual crazy self. Good work!

Hi Humans, Dogs, and Other Creatures,
Here are some ideas that might help in understanding the language of humans:
1. When a human prefaces a sentence with "believe me," do not believe the sentence.
2. When a human says, "don't worry," then you should worry.
3. When a human says he has a plan, but he won't tell you what the plan is, that mean he has no plan.
4. When a human will not release his income tax return, that means he is hiding something in that return that he does not want you to see.
5. When a human dwells on "toughness," that means inside he feels weak.
6. When a human claims he will do "great things" without saying specifically how he intends to those things, that means he has nothing to offer.
7. Humans outside of the "establishment" are not necessarily any more honest than those inside the "establishment." But they might be less knowledgeable.
The list goes on and on, but a general rule of thumb is that whatever a human says consider the opposite. The opposite might be the truth.

Hi Human Hillary Clinton,
So tomorrow you are facing Tricky Trumpy in a debate. Just be yourself and you will do well. Remember you are the honest, competent, experienced, rational statesperson. Tricky Trumpy is the dishonest, incompetent, inexperienced, irrational television huckster and crook. Of course no matter what nonsense falls out of his mouth, his faithful will spin it as pearls of wisdom. But most Americans will see through him. They only have to show up at the polls.

Hi California Humans,
I recommend voting for California Proposition 63 in 2016. It will protect the public from the illegal transferring of bullets. If bullets can be prevented from getting into the hands of criminals, terrorists, and screwballs who want to do harm to their fellow humans, the State of California will be a safer place in which to live. Of course the NRA and the gun anarchists oppose the proposition because the gun lobby wants to sell as many guns and bullets as they can no matter how much harm they cause.

Hi Humans,

Trump and his Republican friends still deny climate change contrary to proven science. They are willing to kick the can down the road and poison the planet in which our children will live in order to appease their fossil fuel constituents. Unfortunately the can is arriving already. We are already seeing the polar ice cap melting, the oceans rising, and the summers getting hotter with more droughts. But they refuse to see what is really happening. They think they are living in a Trumpish reality show.

Hi Humans,
So Donald Trump wants to take away the guns from Hillary Clinton’s Secret Service body guards, but he also wants to maintain a gun anarchy in which any screwball can buy any kind of gun to commit murder. And he claims to be the “law and order” candidate? Even a little dog like me can see his hypocrisy. Why are so many of you humans with your supposed big brains so gullible?

Hi Humans,
When Mom and Dad take me with them on their annual stay at our Chicago apartment, Dad takes me down in the elevator a few times a day so I can relieve myself (no doggie door up there). Sometimes I have to share the elevator with a big ferocious looking dog. When that happens, I meekly hide behind Daddy. Then as the big dog exits the elevator I start barking to show the big dog I am really tough.

Similarly, we saw Donald Trump meekly meeting with the president of Mexico. Later in the day when he was back in the USA playing to his faithful, again he belched out his usual tough nonsense about building the wall and making Mexico pay for it (which of course they would never do).
More recently when he started blasting Clinton to a stony faced sparse audience in a Black church in Flint, Michigan, he was reminded by the pastor that he was not there to make a political speech. He meekly complied. Then the next day, when he was safely back in his element, he complained about the pastor (even though she went out on a limb for allowing him to have a photo-op at her church).

Now I can do that sort of thing because I am just a little dog, but Trump is a human with a supposedly big brain who pretends to be qualified to run for President of the USA.

Hi Humans,
When duty called during the Vietnam War, Trump dodged the draft (his rich father’s connections didn’t hurt). When asked, he says he served his country by making money as a real estate developer. Hillary Clinton served her country as an advocate for the poor and disadvantaged since the beginning of her adult life. She also served as a senator and as secretary of state. Recently she attended a memorial to honor the victims of 9/11 even though she was ill with pneumonia. It is obvious even to this little dog, "who is more fit to be president?" It should be obvious to you humans with your big brains.
By the way, Trump still will not release his tax returns. What is he hiding?

Hi Hillary,
I am happy to see that you are well and back on the campaign trail after your brief illness. We need you. We really, really, really need you! Of course Trump and his little faithful Trumpers will use every trick in their bags of tricks to oppose you, but your advantage is the truth. Keep saying it like it is, and you will prevail.

Hi Humans,

Some of you humans say “the system is rigged” whenever things don’t go as you want them to go. After all, the alternative is to take responsibility for an outcome that does not suit you. The best example is Professor Trump. To Trump, when he is losing in the polls it can’t be because he is a bigot or a liar or inadequate or a loser. Therefore the system must be rigged against him. We dogs (and humans) support Hillary Clinton because she faces up to reality. She faces real problems with real solutions. She thinks through problems carefully for the public good. Trump lives in reality television where the truth is a commodity to be manipulated for personal gain. We dogs live in the real world. I hope most of you humans realize that you live here too.

Hi Hillary,
We wish you a speedy recovery. We all (humans, dogs, cats, all life in America and on this Earth) need you very much. We need your wisdom, your compassion, your experience, your honesty. Take as much rest as you need to get well. Then return to the campaign trail and come out fighting.

Hi Humans,

Trump and his surrogates continue to harp on Clinton’s emails and Ben Ghazi, without any proof of guilt. They do it because they don’t have anything substantive to say. Put aside the Trump University scam, Trump’s bribing of the Florida Attorney General, the Trump Modeling Agency scam, the many bankruptcies leaving others holding the bag, stiffing contractors, belching out bigotry to appeal to his base, and favoring tyrants. Clinton is seasoned, knowledgeable, focused, honest, and prepared. Trump is scattered, unprepared, egotistical, and unpredictable. Clinton is favored by minorities because she has worked with them for decades. Clinton is favored by solid corporate America because she promotes a well regulated orderly market place with concern that all strata of the community share in its benefits. Trump and the tea party favor deregulation for the quick buck artists who collapsed America’s economy 7 ½ years ago (until President Obama came in and saved capitalism). No wonder Trump is behind. As Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.” That’s why Trump is behind.

Hi Humans,
Trump can tell any lie or insult anyone who displeases him because of their race, religion, or ethnicity, and he is just “Trump being Trump”. But when Hillary Clinton says half of Trump’s supporters are “deplorable,” Trump’s surrogates jump all over her. Well, the number might not be mathematically exact, but otherwise it is THE TRUTH. Trump started his campaign by appealing to bigots, and Stephen Bannon of the white supremacist Alt Right movement now runs his campaign. And there is no double standard against Hillary?

Hi Humans,

As a politically slightly left of center, religiously non-fundamentalist, American Jewish Zionist little dog, I am concerned about the extremism pulling apart human Jews in Israel, America, and the rest of the world as well as all the other humans in Israel/Palestine, America, and the rest of the world. Leaving out us dogs and other conscious creatures (as usual), the Left claims to speak for the welfare of all humans, but the extreme left is unfortunately selective as to which humans’ welfare counts. For example, “black lives matter” is a noble cause, but the organization that calls itself Black Lives Matter has recently digressed from their primary cause of ‘black lives matter” by bashing Israel in its charter. I also have issues with the present rightist government in Israel and with the settler movement, but to single out Israel and ignore the much more serious issues in its surrounding neighborhood is wrong. And don’t say anti-Zionism is not anti-semitism. After all who lives in Israel? It’s inhabitants are not non-specific aliens from outer space.

On the other hand, I find it increasingly difficult to defend policies of the government of Israel that support the settlers in taking land away from the Palestinians. The Arabs in the territories crave and deserve hope for self-government, and they deserve dignity. Unfortunately, there is a growing minority of human Jews in Israel who believe that God is a real estate agent who wants them to own all of the Land of Israel/Land of Palestine. That point of view is wrong, untenable, harmful to the Jewish people both in Israel and the Diaspora, and promotes the worst on the Palestinian side, just as BDS goes against the best and promotes the worst in Israel.

On the other hand there are many Arabs (maybe most) and their friends who never accepted the legitimacy of the State of Israel and view the Jews as interlopers. Therefore to them, killing Jews is just and Jews retaliating in self-defense is unjust.

The light at the end of the tunnel is that a just accommodation between both people (not just governments) would benefit both sides. Jews and Arabs both exist and will not go away. They actually have common interests. The Palestinians, if they are willing, can offer the real peace to Israel that was the original purpose of Zionism. Israel can offer to the Palestinians education, prosperity, and a window to globalism. To some extent that is already happening.

The good in Israel outshines the bad, but the bad muddies one’s ability to extol the good.

Hi Humans,
Let’s look at the negative charges in the election.

Hillary Clinton:

1.    Clinton Foundation criticized for accepting contributions while she was in public office; provides health care to disadvantaged humans in Africa and other undeveloped areas of the world

2.    Email irregularities; done for convenience in a busy schedule. Hillary has acknowledged the error. The FBI has shown no reason for legal action.

3.    Ben Ghazi: Hillary acted correctly, sustained a grilling by a Republican witch hunt commission which could not demonstrate any wrong doing.

            Donald Trump:

1.    Trump University: a scam to extract money from vulnerable humans, still in court, Trump falsely accused the judge of being partial because he has a Spanish surname.

2.    Habit of bankrupting businesses, leaving others holding the bag.

3.    Stiffing small businesses he hired, often causing them to go out of business.

4.    Sending work out of the country to get cheap labor.

5.    His model agency imported undocumented models from out of the country, instructed them on how to avoid detection, and took advantage of them by charging them exorbitant rent and keeping them indentured.

6.    He bribed the attorney general of Florida to get her to drop the charges against Trump University in Florida.

7.    He won’t release his income tax returns probably because he is hiding something.

            So, all in all, the charges against Trump involved personal monetary gain and 
             against Clinton did not involve monetary personal gain. So tell me humans with  
             your big brains which is worse?

Dear Human Mr. Kaepernick,
I have to disagree with you. You have the right to say or not say whatever you want in the USA. I don't dislike you for what you did. It's your right just as it is my right to not validate you (not that you need or want a validation from a little dog like me). No nation is perfect, but all in all the USA is a pretty good place for humans to live in, better than most. I am opposed to Trump and his Trumpers because they are bigots and because they put down the real America as it is today under the presidency of Barack Obama (whom I consider the greatest president of our time and perhaps of all time). I assume, Mr. Kaepernick, you have good intentions, but I also see you as a Trump upside down.

Hi Humans,
Trump has many faces and many voices. Now we see Trump at an African American church in Detroit. Interestingly, he speaks with great gusto and conviction blasting minorities when he belches out to his faithful (White and bigoted) humans. But he speaks quietly, politely, robotically, uncomfortably when he reads from his prepared speech in the African American church. This little dog can see through Trump’s duplicity. I hope enough of you humans with your big brains can do the same.

Thursday, September 1, 2016


Hi Humans,
The photo-op showed Trump meeting with the President of Mexico, but the outcome seems to indicate they were at different meetings. Trump said they didn't discuss who would pay for "the wall," but the President of Mexico said he insisted Mexico would not pay for it (why would you expect Mexico to do something so dumb?). However the Mexican President did bring up the problem of American guns being smuggled into Mexico to the drug cartels. Of course that is something Trump omitted from his version of the meeting. After all that wouldn't set well with his base who are gun anarchists besides being bigots. You can't say one thing to your crazies and something else to the rest of America. I think there are enough rational humans in America to see through Trump and vote for Hillary Clinton, the rational, consistent, and knowledgeable candidate for President of the United States.
