NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Republicans insist all must obey the law unless they are Christians.

It is clear to Republicans that Obama is a man who allows his beliefs to supersede the law.

If ignorance was a virtue, Donald Trump would be a saint in Heaven.

I await Donald in Heaven giving orders to the Big Guy up there.

Carly Fiorina ran Hewlitt Packard into the ground and now wants to bring her expertise to America.

How about a ticket of: Carson and Florina??

At least Republicans have the most doctors running for president-Rand Paul and Ben Carson.

I’m Against Terrorists!

If one seeks the Republican nomination for president it is required to promise the American people that,if elected, one will wipe out all the Muslim terrorists. A Republican commentator, Hugh Hewitt decided to ask Republicans to name the terrorist groups they intend to wipe out. For example, were they referring to Al-Zawahiri of al-Qaeda or Hassan Nasrallah who fights in Syria or al-Baghdadi of ISIS?

Carly Fiorina: “Well, I have to be honest with you and say that sometimes I can get confused a bit between the name of a group because they sound a bit alike.”

Donald Trump: “That’s a gotcha question. As far as the individual players, of course, I don’t know them. I’ve never met them. I haven’t been, you know, in a position to meet them.. It is essentially important that we have a leader in the White House who understands them.”

In other words, I do not have the faintest idea who are the terrorists, where they engage in terror, but I have a secret plan to wipe them all out!

I Am The Law

The ongoing mantra of the Republican party is that Barack Obama regards himself as above the law.For the past six years just about every Republican politician and Fox News have blasted Obama for refusing to adhere to the laws of the land. They charge he insists upon claiming the right to decide what is or what is not a law. So,along comes Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky who claims the right to adhere to her own religious beliefs even when they violate the laws of the land, and she is now a hero. Why? Because Kim insists that HER personal beliefs are more important than the laws of the United States of America!

Kim has now been cited for contempt of court. Five of the six clerks in her office now agree they must obey the law. One, her son, refuses. And along comes Rand Paul with some advice. “It is hard to argue that government involvement in marriage makes it better.” Rand, the so called,”government involvement”is the law of America. I assume from now on Rand Paul will be saying, “Republican claims that Barack Obama violates the law are wrong, a man has a right to follow his ideas even when they go against the ideas of Republicans.”

Get Ready–They’re Coming By Boat!

I understand that Donald Trump is attempting to protect our border to the south, of course, Scott Walker is more concerned about the Canadian invasion. But,what about the Syrians who are at this very moment sailing in row boats across the Atlantic Ocean headed for the Statue of Liberty in New York City harbor? Flash! My informants inform me those Syrian immigrants are now joined by black skinned folk from Africa. And, to make matters worse, those blacks are using sail and motor boats to cross the Atlantic. So, Donald, what about that wall on the east coast?

It is time that President Obama acted like the president of the U.S.A. rather than head of some African tribe. Imagine the horror when Syrian and Nigerian and Iraqi immigrants take away our jobs picking peaches, apples and oranges! Imagine when they take away good jobs as nannies! How many unemployed lawyers would die for a chance to pick peaches!

I do not know if a wall would help along the border with the Atlantic Ocean, but maybe fishing boats could be stationed along the coast and prevent these immigrants from fishing for OUR f!

Cop Charged With Murder

It is now a basic belief of Fox News and Republicans that charging police with a crime every time they blast away at an unarmed black boy does irreparable harm to the morale of those who guard our lives against crime. After all,if cops have to hesitate before they shoot the only result is that the bad guys will have an unfair advantage over the good guys. Officer Stephen Rankin encountered an 18 year old black boy outside a Walmart who he believed was a shoplifter. Confession time, I was a shoplifter as a boy and stole comic books. I was taken to the police station and kept there until an Irish politician showed up. He talked with the sergeant, and then grabbed me, took me outside and belted me one in the mouth saying, “you little prick, the next time you shoplift I will handle all punishment”

Let us assume Officer Rankin thought Mr. Chapman was a shoplifter.

1. Place handcuffs on him and wait for other officers.

2. Talk gently to the boy and ask him if he shoplifted saying he might get off with a fine.

3. If Rankin feared for his own life, he had sufficient time to aim at a leg. I assume officer Rankin fires at targets and understands that one does not always have to hit the bullseye. Rankin is now charged with murder. I assume Fox News will regard such action as encouraging criminals to shoplift.

What has ever happened to the spirit of Jesus??

Russia Bans Imports Of Bad People Products

It is quite clear that if anyone messes with the Putin man, that individual or that nation is going to be punished. Russia has announced a ban on food products from Bulgaria. As it is well known, Bulgarian meat or cheese or apple sauce contain ingredients that encourage people to rise up in anger against their government. We soon expect:

1. A ban on French perfume.It is outrageous for Russian women to smell other than 100% Russian!

2. A ban on McDonald’s hamburgers.Frankly, I do not know if that is good or bad news for the Russian people.

3. A ban on cotton from Egypt. First,they came for Egyptian cotton,and then they came for the pyramids!

4. A ban on Scotch whiskey. It is a criminal offense in Russia to get drunk drinking anything other than vodka.

5. A ban on pizza from Pizza Hut. This may have crossed the line. Touch pizza and have a discussion with the Mafia.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

France, Connexion: “Fake Health Refunds”

At least this is one healthy way to make money.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Must See Attraction”

Trump and Putin together at a press conference.

USA, aol: “Unauthorized Drone Flights”

In the Middle East???

UK,Guardian: “Rich People Don’t Become Soldiers”

So, what’s new about this story?

Sweden, Local: “We Will Run This Country”

The Republican mantra of destruction.

The Immigration Issue

Unfortunately, in the real world we can not return to decisions made, and alter what has happened in history. We are stuck with the reality of the past as it impinges on the present. There is no doubt other policies could have been followed when the madness of the Syrian conflict initially began. The decision to invade Iraq initiated a vast gathering together of Muslim fanatics, but that was then, and today is now. It is now estimated that Germany, alone, will witness the arrival of about 800,000 immigrants this year. The seas around Europe now hold the bodies of thousands of men, women, and children, the unlucky ones who never got across the sea. So, what now?

1. Just about every European nation is witnessing the graying of their nation.

2. Just about every European nation needs young workers.

3. Immigrants are NOT a burden, they represent an opportunity for Europe to revitalize itself with youthful workers

4. Europe must initiate a vast worker training program and integrate these young people within their societies.

5. By the way, from 1880-1924, the United States absorbed 20,000,000 immigrants and thus grew wealthier.

Bomb,Bomb,Bomb

There is a professor at West Point who has a rather unusual approach to securing peace in the Middle East. William Bradford has taught at law schools and seeks to provide West Point students with his interesting analysis of how to end conflict in this area of the world.He argues that attacking scholarly sites where Muslim leaders are and just blasting away with result in the death of those leaders and peace will result. He argues there are “attractive targetable sites at law schools” or where “dissenting scholars live” and they should be blasted into oblivion.

Let me get the straight, taking out Muslim scholars by airborne attacks somehow will lead to their death and peace. The real question is how did this nut case get on the West Point faculty in the first place. West Point simply could have asked Dick Cheney or Don Rumsfeld to be visiting scholars and get the same lecture.

P.S. Bradford decided to resign after this tirade.

Kim Davis Does Not Take A Stand

By now millions of Americans have heard about Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky who refuses to issue marriage licenses to those seeking a gay marriage. Kim insist that she is merely carrying out the ideas of God. I assume she had engaged in some sort of discussion with the Big Guy in the sky. I assume it is now OK for me to insist that it violates my religion to pay taxes. God does not have any taxes in Heaven so paying taxes violates one of his fundamental universal laws.

Well, it turns out that Kim who refuses to issue gay marriage licenses had no qualms in issuing a marriage license to a transgender man who proceeded to marry a woman. Camryn Cohen entered her office in February.”She took me at my face value and judged the book by its cover.” I fear for the life of Kim. She just violated the laws of God and I assume a thunder bolt is headed her way.
