There may be still hope with Donald Trump

There may be still hope with Donald Trump.

Obama warned Trump to wait until January 20, 2017, with destroying the United States. The outlook is bleak, indeed, with Trump day after day making idiotic statements, telling lies and suggesting that money can buy everything, including spiritual values. Just some words addressed to Iran, ”You have wonderful, intelligent people there,” sounds not only stupid and unaware of the abstract definitions of the concept of intelligence, but...

Ode to Donald Trump

by Gilbert Creutzberg

 

 

Donald Trump, hear, if you can,

You’re a lying clown, my man,.

Got to move that big fat arse,

Fly your private plane to Mars.


 

Tell those suckers, tell ‘em all

That you’ll build a mall, with wall

You will be their president,

Better yet: you’ll be their friend.

Solving the problem of 11 million illegal immigrants

Solving the problem of 11 million illegal immigrants


What would you do if you could change an untenable situation that has become a major political issue? Beg you pardon: a human issue.

I kept thinking about it. I traveled in Mexico three times, enjoying it very much. I thought, if I were the president, I would follow the example of Luis Muῆoz Marin, former president of Puerto Rico and founder of the Common ...

Donald Trump: the albatross of the GOP

 

By Gilbert Creutzberg

 

 

I’ve always voted Democrat, so therefore I shouldn’t have to care if this man named Donald Trump is doing irreparable damage to a very essential system of government in a country where I live and of which I became a citizen in 1971. But I do care, because the country where I was born, Holland, officially known as The Netherlands, was occupied for five years by Hitler&...

Next on the agenda: THE DEATH PENALTY

By Gilbert Creutzberg

 

Justices Breyer and Ginsburg appear close to announcing that the court will soon rule whether the death penalty is unconstitutional. Of course, much will depend on how one interprets those terms of the Eighth Amendment, “cruel and unusual punishment.”

As a person born in The Netherlands, I’m proud that my country was one of the earliest, in 1870, to put an end to the death penalty...

Robots and more

 

By Gilbert Creutzberg

 

My first contact with a robot must have been twenty or more years ago. I was on a field visit to New York State OASAS, an acronym for Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services. I was introduced to “Norman,” the robot, who faithfully rode around the office on a rail, collecting and distributing office mail. I should have been impressed, but I was not. “Norman” was just...

So much for Respect for Life

Reaction to article on the front page of the New York Times, 9/30/2014, “He Kicked a Stray Cat and Activists Growled.”

 

Andre Robinson, age 22, who kicked a stray cat and then posted a video of it in FaceBook, doesn’t look like a bad guy and the cat is a beautiful animal, so what went wrong? The Indians, who lived here first, certainly had respect for life and for nature, and would apologize to a tree when they had to cut it. What happened to ...

Open Letter and Response

by Gilbert Creutzberg

An open letter to the Vestry and to the Rector of Christ Church Riverdale

from Gilbert Creutzberg [published in FaceBook]

5-8-2014 / 5-9-2014

I don’t have any recollection of having been baptized, nor do I have a birth certificate. I must have a photo somewhere of when my father, a minister, baptized me, in Holland.

In recent years, we are being reminded in Christ Church Riverdale t...
