Let’s Check Out Jesus

I continually see signs from Trump supporters that declare: “THANK YOU JESUS FOR DONALD TRUMP.” I decided it was necessary to go right to the Jesus guy myself and check out why he sent Donald Trump to planet Earth.

M: So, Jesus, why Donald Trump?

J: Who?

M: Donald,Donald Trump,the guy who has plans to change this planet.

J: Oh, the red haired guy who wakes me up every night with those incessant phone calls!

M: You mean that Trump actually speaks with you?

J: “Speak” would not be the word I would use. More like, shout and demand and insist that I return to Earth and appear at one of his rallies.

M: You mean that you would support Donald Trump for president?

J: Fred, it is now a question of whether I support him or he will buy out Heaven and kick me out!

M: So, what will you do, my good friend?

J: Well, I talked to Dad and he warned me to be careful because Donald has his eyes on the Big Guy in the sky job!

Let’s Investigate Comedy Hour

There would be important news from Washington DC. if the Republican Congress announced they were NOT going to investigate Hillary or Planned Parenthood or the Socialist ideas of Bernie Sanders. So, in the interest of investigation, we offer some issues to be investigated

1.Why the Republican party has problems deciding who will lead them in Congress.

2.Why the New York Knicks have not won an NBA championship in forty years.

3. Why McDonald’s is offering breakfast all day long.

4. The Ben Carson sort of laugh.

5. Whatever happened to Sarah Palin? Is she still alive or is she a prisoner of ISIS?

6.Why the House of Representatives does not have a comedy hour to liven up things.

7. Why did John McCain allow himself to be captured. Donald will be presiding judge, jury and executioner.

8. So, where exactly was Donald Trump during the Vietnam War?

Oh,I forgot,at least one more shot at Benghazi.

What About North Korea?

The American press and the American political scene is focused on issues such as the Middle East or the potential of an atomic weapon in the hands of Iranian leaders. Bibi Netanyahu is worried sick that ten years from now Iran MIGHT have a nuclear weapon. Of course, Israel already HAS atomic weapons but the world should trust Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu who continually demands attacks on Iran.

On the other hand, Admiral Bill Gortney, head of the Northern Command, reminded Americans there might be nation RIGHT NOW which can attack the US. He is greatly concerned about North Korea. “We assess that they have the capability to reach the homeland(USA) with a nuclear weapon from a rocket. i’m pretty confident that we’re going to knock down the number that are going to be shot.”

So, Iran has NO atomic weapons, but North Korea HAS them and we are worried about–IRAN??


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

USA, Newsday: “Rob Yogurt Store At Gunpoint”

So, which flavor was stolen?

Russia,Moscow Times: “No Easy Solution”

Have you checked with Ben Carson, he always had the easy solution.

France, Connexion: “Leaning Tower Approved”

For Republicans,that means lean to the right.

UK,Guardian: “Free Advice From Notary”

Pay your taxes?

Sweden, Local: “Town Hall Set On Fire”

The Tea Party handles getting rid of government.

Explaining Syria

Recent events in Syria have not been discussed in the American media, aside from calls for “more boots on the ground” Few American analysts have given the public an understanding of what is transpiring in Syria.

1. President Assad is frightened. He is scared of his allies in Iran. Assad now grasps that the Ayatollahs in Tehran are ready to dump him and get what they can from Syria.

2. The Iran Revolutionary Guard has grown powerful in Syria to the point where it is making decisions about the country’s future. The Iranians believe they no longer need Syrians in leadership positions.

3. The Alewives, from which Assad comes, are not the same type of Muslims as those in Iran. As one noted, “They are turning us back a thousand years. We don’t wear headscarves and we aren’t Shiites.”

4. Assad fears that Hezbollah will carve out a piece of Syria that borders Lebanon and just forget about Syria.

5. So, Assad has called in the Russians to balance Iran.

6. And, Putin wants Syria to be close to Russia so if Iran gains power in Syria, goodbye Russia!

Slogan Diplomacy

The emergence of Republicans to power in Washington D.C. has been accompanied by the resort to a slogan in order to resolve any and all problems in the world. Just shout a one liner and–poof, away goes the problem.

“Bomb Iran.” At no time did Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Richard Nixon, or Ronald Reagan urge bombing our enemies. They relied upon diplomacy.

“Shoot them down.” Bib Netanyahu’s answer to the Palestinian issue is to resort to violence. The last time there was an Intifada, thousands of Palestinians died, along with over a thousand Jewish Israelis.

“Give Everyone A Gun.” People with guns kill people. Australia, after a mass shooting, ended the use of automatic weapons. Gun violence went down.

“Cut taxes.” During the 1950s the top tax rate was –91%! It was a boom time for jobs and wages.

“Arm Everyone.” How about kindergarten kids?

Sheriff Carson Warns Bad Guys

Ben Carson, by all accounts was an excellent surgeon who understood the process of making people healthy. Since he began pontificating about the world of politics, gun violence and world affairs, it is quite clear this man would have been the last one that a western town would have appointed as their Sheriff. He insisted that he just had to say something about gun violence and the death of several in an Oregon town.Here is the sage of the Republican party: “I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say,’Hey guys, everybody attack him. He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.”

Very brave statement from someone who has never confronted people with guns. A famous study by S.L.A.Marshall regarding American troops fighting in Europe revealed that one third did not fire their weapons in order not to reveal their position. The world of facing those with guns is frightening.

Oh, Ben wants kindergarten teachers to be trained in self defense. Huh?

Angela No Longer Angel

Chancellor Angela Merkel has definitely placed her head on the chopping block because this refugee from Communist East Germany has made clear that her country WILL accept those fleeing from the chaos in the Middle East. Even as I write these words, thousands of people from Syria or Iraq or just about any place in the Middle East are heading towards Germany.The latest estimate is by the end of the year nearly one million refugees will have reached Germany. Naturally,the backlash is growing as German politicians wonder whether their country can absorb so many immigrants.

Reality–there is no question that Germans will rebel at the arrival of one million people from the Middle East. Even the Turkish immigrants who have been in Germany for over fifty years will become upset. The logical solution is to distribute the refugees among all nations in the European Union. Most probably,that will not happen. So, what is the future? Frankly, I do not have a clue and neither does Angela Merkel.

Why Not Me, President?

Aung San Suu Kyi has been the leader of most people in Myanmar but she is not allowed to run for president because military leaders know that if she ran, they would lose the presidency. So they inserted a clause in the Constitution that prevents anyone married to a foreigner to become the president–her dead husband was born in England. So, Suu Kyi has come up with a novel idea. “I’ve made it quite clear that if the NLD wins the election and we form a government, I’m going to be the leader of that government whether or not I’m the president. Why not? Should you have to be president to lead a country?”

I assume that she wants to make Myanmar just like the good-old USA. After all, in the coming presidential election, if Republicans win, the Koch Brothers will be president and, Sheldon Adelson will handle foreign affairs, particularly in the Middle East. Now, if Jeb wins, which of his donors gets to be the guy running the show?


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


I wonder if someone out of the blue will cast their name into the Republican race–Dick Cheney?

So, what ever happened to Rand Paul– a lot of silence?

So, what does Scott Walker now do–take on Planned Parenthood or the AA group?

I would so love to hear what a wealthy guy says to a Republican seeking his money.

I know that guns in hands of good guys halt shootings, but how does one define a “good guy?”

The Oregon shooter had a wonderful mom, she even loved guns more than he did.
