MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Looking at the top stories in one edition of the daily newspaper in February 2017.

Both Governor Chris Christie (NJ) and Andrew Cuomo (NY) have problems with their electorates. It will be interesting to see how their next campaigns go.

Also a quick drive-by bashing of the President-Elect.

Happy New Year!

The MTA announced a bunch of new projects that will revolutionize transportation around New York City and its surrounding boroughs.

More than $27 billion (with a B) for new subway cars, a refurbished LaGuardia Airport, a system to replace MetroCards, and a streetcar system to connect Brookly and Queens residents are being discussed.

And I am surprisingly fine with all of it.

Hate crimes are on the rise 35 percent on mass transit in NYC since the election.

I witnessed a possible incident this past week.

Yet it did not draw any discernible reaction from commuters.

Are we all hardened to the treatment of our fellow man, or are we just hardended in our resolve to be left alone as we transport ourselves?

Don't call them by the buzzword-friendly "alt-right."

They are the second coming of the American Nazi party, and they are emboldened by the Republican victories. Since the GOP leadership refuses to repudiate their existence and verbiage, they are coming for their enemies – when indeed they are the enemies of Democracy.

President-Elect Donald Trump is not having an easy time.

Well, who knows what he expected. But it's no cakewalk.

And the band of family and sycophants that have been surrounding him are in-fighting like cats and dogs, desperately scratching to profit and remain in the mix.

Who loses? That's obvious – the American citizen, who voted for him or for any candidate. As well as the 48 percent of the American public that chose NOT to vote this year.

It sounds like a broken record but it's more indicative of a broken political system.

Donald Trump is losing the Presidential race. But to listen to him and his surrogates, he is in the lead and Hillary Clinton is doing everything underhanded to steal the election from him.

Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, and Rudy Giuliani, the Three Stooges of the Apocalypse, will say any reprehensible thing because they crave power. Power that the next President of the United States could bequeath to them.

Luckily, at this rate, it won't be Donald Trump.

As much as I hate to talk about Donald Trump, the man provides endless material every time he opens his hateful mouth.

In the past week, a number of ridiculous claims were made that were simply swept under the rug, as if the general populace has heard enough and doesn't need to know about the latest batch of nonsense.

Meanwhile, his opponent got pneumonia and was a little shaky after the 9/11 Memorial. That became the big story. Not Trump using other people's money through his foundation to buy a six-foot-tall painting of himself. Not running mate Mike Pence refusing to denounce racist David Duke because "he's not in the name-calling business." Not Trump once again refusing to release his taxes.

The absurdity continues as Election Day draws nearer.

Donald Trump continues to be in the news and his pitbull surrogate, Rudy Giuliani, is right there with his fangs bared.

00:0000:00

Believe me, I hate talking about Donald Trump two weeks in a row.

But the public furor between him and Khazir Khan (father of a deceased war hero) is more looney tunes.
