Trumpetin’ in la-la land!
I got this one from a friend who swear it is true. It is also true he does do a lot of swearing; but here goes, for what it is worth.
Donald Trump was invited to address a gathering of the American Indian Nation in upstate New York. He spoke about his plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living.
Although Trump was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers”. At the conclusion of his speech, the tribes presented him with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name –– Walking Eagle.
The proud Trump accepted the plaque and then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds.
A news reporter asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to Donald. They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of poop, it can no longer fly!
I can’t swear fuh de accuracy of de story, but I like umm!
Part of de problem wid Trumpie is all now he was supposed to be last year’s joke, but de joker still here, and de people still laughing.
De Mexican president tell he straight: “We not gine pay fuh nuh wall.” Yet the Joker insist dem gine pay fuh it, though he don’t say how he gine mek dem.
If, as a good friend of mine Ron point out, he plan to introduce a 45 per cent tariff pun goods coming from Mexico, surely he know dat it is de Amurcan people and not Mexico dat gine pay fuh de increases in goods.
But while Mr Trump preaching divisiveness in Amurca, calling every minority by some awful names, and calling fuh walls and banning of Muslims, over next door a more enlightened leader seeking to open de doors of Canada to families who get left behind when parents and brothers and sisters went to Canada to study and mek a better life fuh everybody.
Young Mr Trudeau showing some real vision. So while Trump want to build a wall to keep immigrants out, de Canadian leader want to welcome family and reunite families. How refreshingly different and inclusive! I hope Justin Trudeau get plenty support from de Canadian people.
He might want to consider a wall though to control de Amurcans who likely to flee if Trump get elected president of de USA, or at least invite Trump to enter via de Niagra Falls!
Meanwhile, back pun de homefront, two things jump me dis past week: de decision to cut de allocation fuh de QEH by $9 million in de Estimates fuh de next Government fiscal year and dis talk ’bout fingerprinting nationals going out of and coming into de country.
If, as rumoured, de QEH currently under pressure wid de current allocation and got shortages of all sorts of things, how dem gine cope wid cuts of $9 million? I gine beg Chris to think hard ’bout dat one again, cause if De Vendor get a nail juck wid a fish bone, de QEH is where I does get free medical emergency attention.
Look like I gine have to hope dat Bayview Hospital introduce some sort of emergency service fuh a Vendor.
And pun de fingerprinting thing. I got a problem wid that. Why you want to fingerprint me when I is a law-abiding citizen? Government already got everything dem could need pun me. I got ID card, driver’s licence, marriage certificates –– three; well, had three; got one now, passport, birth and baptismal certificates, QEH hospital card, NIS registration, national registration, road tax documentation, land tax documentation, BARP card, income tax documentation, Barbados Water Authority accounts.
In fact, Government got more details pun me than I got pun muself; and wunnah want now to bring me to de same level as de common criminal? What for?
Yuh mean ah fella can’t have a distinction between he and de fella Bradshaw dat just get release from prison? We must got de same information in Government data base?
Who gine champion we cause? Comissiong or who?
I object strongly to being fingerprinted by my country when I is a law-abiding citizen!
De rest of wunnah better open wunnah mout’ and holler.
I Market Vendor gone fuh now. You have a blessed and a wonderful day, yuh hear?
