Is Trump Ignorant Or Does He Not Get It?

    As expected, the revised ban on the deportation of Muslims has been ruled unconstitutional and thus banned. First from the Judge in Hawaii and the one in Maryland followed by Washington (State not DC). But here’s the thing: Shortly after, at one of his damn rallies, he said that :

Mr. Trump called the ruling an “unprecedented judicial overreach.” At a rally in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday evening, he described it as “bad,” “sad” news.

“The order (Watson) blocked was a watered-down version of the first order that was also blocked by another judge, and should have never been blocked to start with,”

This man is clueless as to how our Government runs. The judges ruling in this don’t just rule because they can, they read, look at both sides, hear arguments then rule and guess what: A Muslim ban is still a ban regardless of how it’s worded. Also, you can water it down as much as you want but there are people, smart people who see right through it. 

     Mr.Trump can continue revising this ban as much as he pleases  and having it being overruled every time. As I stated previously, this violates several laws and Trump thinks it does not but this is also a man who’s convinced that Trump Tower was under surveillance by President Obama.

    The law is the law and unless the Fuhrer changes it, his obsession of kicking out Muslims will never take flight. If every country didn’t have a Constitution, then no one would be safe and for some reason, in Trump’s warped mind he’s convinced that Muslims are a threat to National Security and therefore need to depart America. This is exactly what Hitler said about the Jews and we know how that went.

    I sincerely doubt that this case will go to the Supreme Court because:

A: They won’t hear it 

B: They won’t overrule what the 9th court already ruled on 

And besides, chances are that if it goes that far they will rule the same as the other judges (And if yes, then what? What will Trump do?)

    It’s funny yet sad that if another President had done this people would be crying foul and protesting (And they have been) however, you have Trump who has brought out people’s true colors by now  supporting him and yes believing whatever he says is the truth . (Yes, this is exactly how Hitler worked his Propaganda machine and it worked really, really well).

    It just really goes to show you how people who follow Trump are ignorant people and really have decided that if you aren’t with him then you are the enemy .Case in point:

 When Rachel Maddow had Trump’s 2005 tax return all his supporters pounced on her saying she’s out to get him and trying to make him look bad. Heck, even Tucker Carlson got in on the act saying that NBC was so desperate for ratings that they will lie, cheat and steal just to get them. (Keep in mind that FOX News is a HUGE supporter of Trump).

    Now, here’s the problem where it gets puzzling:  The White House put a statement out verifying that the returns were real and accurate and then contradicted itself saying that they were illegally obtained, stolen and NBC wanted to Destroy Trump so they published without permission. Except it’s not as the Press is protected by the First Amendment and therefore have every right to publish it. Of course the White House should know this but sadly, they have been brainwashed by their leader Steve Bann… I mean Donald Trump

     I bring this up because it’s become apparent that Trump, even as President, feels that he can do whatever he wants and that he’s above the law. There’s a reason why after FDR limits were put in place for a President’s term. 

    Now, that Trump has strike two with his ban, what will he do next regarding his obsession with this ban? Put a clause in that states no one will be allowed to challenge him on it?

     Now, we move on to the budget and it’s a doozy. Slash the essential to fund the military and that damn wall that no one wants or asked for. EPA, NEA, State Department, etc, etc…. First of all, the military is very well funded and have been for years and second, Trump believes that we need to build up the armed forces to fight the bad dudes (Which apparently we haven’t been doing all this time)

   Slashing the EPA means environmental and climate disasters (although Trump thinks global warming was created by the Chinese). NEA is pretty self explanatory but all I’ll say is this: Bye Bye PBS. Of course this needs to be voted on and I hope a no is the outcome but still, in Trump’s world he believes we need to live in a militaristic state at all times. 

   Speaking of Trump’s world, remember the tweet he sent out claiming, without proof that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower to spy on him and then demanded that an investigation into it be conducted? Well, guess what: This investigation wasted time, money and resources because it was concluded that nothing was found and that there was never any surveillance done at anytime. Trump’s response? You will see some important stuff regarding it very, very soon. And what stuff is that mein fuhrer? How will you show us when no one else had anything ? Are you magically going to make evidence appear from thin air? 

   This guy needs a reality check because he just does NOT get it. 

  1. Ban: The courts have ruled it illegal and unconstitutional. TRUMP:  The judges are morons and they don’t care about America;s safety.We are right, they are wrong and we will appeal it until we get what we want. Yeah, you tried that the first time and it didn’t work .

2.   Tax Returns: They were anonymously sent to a journalist’s mailbox and revealed on Live TV but not before being verified as authentic by White House. TRUMP: It was illegally obtained. You stole it. Dishonest Media will do anything to fix bad ratings.

3. Budget Cuts: Common and needed. TRUMP: If we’re to fund the wall and make our military  stronger,we need to slash things not needed or important. People don’t go to the Opera anymore so let’s get rid of that. PBS isn’t relevant so let’s do that and Global warming is made up so let’s not fund the EPA.

4. After an investigation, there’s no evidence showing that at any point in time was Trump Tower bugged: TRUMP: You will some very important stuff about the wiretapping coming very, very soon.

Clearly, this man is living in his own world where his law is the land and everyone obeys. We have never ever experienced anything like this before. The White House is acting like it’s a Kindergarten where if they don’t get there way the throw a tantrum. Not only is this inappropriate, but it’s not professional and the world laughs us and sees what we’ve become. Not only that, he’s an embarrassment to our country and to others as well.

    But go ahead let’s keep defending him for it is us the sane people who will have the last laugh.  The (as Trump Supporters call us) Liberals who are spreading the “truth”and telling it like it is and the supporters who are calling us out on it asking us to stop he lies and hate. It is those supporters that tell us that we have no clue what we are talking about. 

  I am not a liberal. I am me. I do not like what this country is becoming and furthermore, I am ashamed and embarrassed to be an American.We have someone who could care less about us and only became President to benefit himself and his wealthy friends.

     A President should not be using his personal twitter account for obvious reasons and he’s been asked not to do so. Also, he hasn’t exactly divested himself of his business for if he had  he would no longer be an executive producer of The Apprentice  for which he is being paid for.

     Be a President and DO YOUR JOB. If you can’t, then resign because we want a President who isn’t a pathological liar, racist , bigot, unethical or someone without any morals. We also want someone who plays by the rules, knows the laws (and follows them) and most important has America’s best interests in mind. Someone who doesn’t try to suppress the media or have their staff making up “facts”. 

The United States of America was founded on the basis of Freedom and Liberty both of which is slowly being taken from us.

Saying Goodbye To An Institution

   Last night was bittersweet for many people. Myself included.  See, after 35 years of service, Shang Chai  one of the original (and maybe the first) kosher Chinese  restaurant, closed it’s doors for good at 11 PM EST. Knowing this, I decided, on a whim, to make this as an event for friends to have one last hurrah and say goodbye. It was bittersweet because most of us have fond memories of the place. Whether it was for a date, Sheva Brachos  (wedding celebration), birthday parties or just in general, this place had meaning for many. So last night, we took advantage  of this and to me this is the restaurant that will always hold a place in my heart and here’s why: 

1) FRIENDLY STAFF

They always had a smile on their faces and sometimes, they would take the time out to talk with you. In fact, I remember vividly the head waiter who always remembered things we spoke about the last time and he would always ask about it. He would always ask how we were and what we were up to. Sometimes he would give us a few things on the house. He knew my father well and from what I saw, they had established a rapport with each other. To my knowledge, I don’t recall a single restaurant that ever had a friendlier staff then them.

2) SERVICE

Service was also impeccable. Sure they were more expensive then others but the food was always good. Even if it wasn’t, people came because of the service. Why? Because Shang Chai was one of those rare “old school” places where they treated you like family. So much so in fact that many who came out last night had the opportunity  to say goodbye to the owner and you could tell that she appreciated all the sentiments. Never once did she show her emotions but no matter how busy she was last night she took the time to speak to anyone who came to say goodbye.

I’m not sure will ever have a restaurant like this one again and I’m okay with that because while restaurants come and go, memories are forever and I know that one of my friends told me how bittersweet it was for her (especially her parents) while another told me one about him and his daughter. We all have stories to tell about this place. And now we have a new one to tell and I’m glad  that I was able to have one last memory of the place with friends. So thank you guys (You know who you are) for coming out to say goodbye with me. As Bob Hope once said: Thanks For The Memories (Video Below) 

On a side note: I did take a souvenir. I will always have the menu to cherish.

My own memories: I shot this before we left the restaurant :  See Video Below

Do you have any memories of the place? If so, please feel free to share them.
