NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a twenty five year old mind trapped in an eighty five year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Trump choice: golf courses or President. Guess which he chooses?

If Trump becomes president, he sets a new record: first president to have been married three times.

If only English colonists did not allow foreign immigrants to arrive like those damn Germans, no Trump.

Now in season for NBA stars to determine their next team.

Play ‘Hamilton’ about a man interested in money, so what’s new in American politics?

As long as money determines where one goes to college, that is the ultimate Affirmative action decision.

I worry about the silence of the Bush family. Is there a young Bush on the political make?

 

ISIS In Retreat

Hardly a day goes by without a Republican complaining that ISIS is winning the war and it is all the fault of President Obama. John Mccain insists that if only Obama had maintained US troops in Iraq there would not be an ISIS. He insists that Obama left too soon. Actually, the date for US departure was set by PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH, not by Obama. Actually, President Obama offered to retain 10,000 troops but the Iraq government insisted that any US soldier guilty of a crime against an Iraqi would be tried in an Iraq court.

Gee, I wonder if John McCain would have accepted the trial of American soldiers in an Iraq court? The mess in Iraq is the fault of a Shiite government which as refused to allow the Sunni minority a voice in government– or in serving in the armed forces of the nation. Donald wants to “carpet bomb.” Here are the facts about ISIS in Iraq:

They have lost 40% of all land seized.

Fallujah has just fallen to Iraq troops.

Bombing already has destroyed at least 50% of their oil facilities.

Over ten thousand ISIS troops have been killed and thousands more have been wounded.

Pay of ISIS troops has been cut in half.

Sometimet this year Mosul will fall and this will mark the end of ISIS in Iraq.

Donald Trump On England

The people of England voted by 52% to 48% to separate from England. Donald Trump happened to be in Scotland to open a new golf course so he naturally had to offer his views on the vote. First, he naturally blamed Obama for the vote count since the President urged England to remain. “A lot of people don’t like him.” He went on to predict that “the American people will have a chance come November to declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies.”

Ironically, Donald told the people of Great Britain they were right to leave, and he made these comments in Scotland which voted over 60% to REMAIN. As always, Donald Trump will simplify the most complex issue and reduce it to nonsense. At this point there is no poll indicating Donald Trump will get 50% of the vote.

Affirmative Action Has Always Been Around

A recent decision by the Supreme Court ruled that it was constitutional for the University of Texas to utilize as ONE factor in admission, the race of the person. Opponents claim any reference to race violates the rights of white skinned people. Actually, there has been an Affirmative Action program in existence for  over a hundred years, and it benefits white skinned people.

Consider the following factors in deciding if a student is admitted to a college:

Legacy factor: If your mom or dad graduated from the college, you get preferential treatment.

If you folks sort of donate gobs of money, welcome to the college.

If your parents are famous people–child of the Obamas–welcome to the college.

If you are an athlete, please come shoot basketballs on our courts.

If you have music talents, welcome to the  party.

If you are a cheer leader, come cheer for us.

If you went to the right high school or private school, you are more than welcome.

Yes sir, Affirmative Action has always been with us-for white people!

So Long For Now

There is no question that Donald Trump has an amazing capacity to make some people adore him, and to make some people feel revolted by his noise and clamor. George Will is a noted conservative who has been a life long member of the Republican party. After listening to the constant boasting and bombastic comments of Donald Trump, the conservative made clear “this is not my party.” He is shocked by the refusal of Paul Ryan to take a stand against a candidate who  does not believe in any conservative values.

He also offered a word of advice to Donald Trump. “Crowds are definitely  not a representative selection of the American people.” He made clear to fellow Republicans–“make sure that the loses. Cut your teeth for four years and win the    White House.”

Note the inability  of any Republican to utter the words –Hillary Clinton.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

A brocken clock is right twice a day.

Some place today an illegal immigrant will commit a crime.

Some place today, a native born American will commit a crime.

If you blast away with  your AR-15 at a shooting range you will hit the bullseye.

Chris Christie IS a great valet.

I sure want one of those high paying jobs Donald promises one and all.

Brett leads one from one group of insane people to another such group.

You don’t want David Cameron handling your retirement funds.

A duck knows when to put head in or out of water.

I always wind up behind the old lady at the check-out line.

Whoever said ‘age wears well’ sure was never old.

Some like intelligent leaders, some like Trump.

The silence of Jeb Bush is deafening.

I miss Ted Cruz pretending to be a fighting sheriff.

Whatever happened to Carly Fiorina?

David Cameron Goofed

British Prime Minister David Cameron was never compelled to seek a referendum on whether or not England should remain in the European Union. And, he lost his gamble. “I was absolutely clear  about my belief that Britain was stronger, safer and better off inside the EU. I made clear the referendum was about this, and this alone, not the future of any single politician, including myself. But, the British people made a different decision to take a different path. I think the country requires fresh leadership.”

He resigned. Leaders of the European Council made clear there would be no compromises for England. They indicated that England should “leave as soon as possible. There will be no renegotiation.”

So long its been good to know you.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

God, would I love to hear the conversation between Trump and Kim Jong un.

Yes, Donald is creating well paid jobs–for those working in jobs that provide items Donald needs in his campaign.

So where next does LeBron James go to help a city which needs to have a basketball championship?

Another Independence Day fight against alien invaders — now we know how to make America, Great Again!

I wonder if there are Aliens who just exude love and peace?

Let’s hope we Earthians are unusual in the universe with our hate and violence.

So where next for Bernie is the question of the hour?

Has anyone thought of sending Bernie to North Korea to spark a youth rebellion agains the Establishment?

After Scotland leaves we can call Great Britain –Little England.

I am an Elizabeth Warren supporter for vice president.

 

 

Trump Seeks Foreign Policy Knowledge

While Democrats were sitting in Congress and making political points vis Periscope, Donald Trump was on a mission to gather new knowledge concerning what was going on in the world. After all, Donald Trump is a man of action, he is a man seeking to gain understanding of the key issues confronting humanity. Where else to go these days of Islamic terrorism and hordes of Hispanics crossing our unguarded borders than to –Scotland! Yes, Scotland. Why Scotland? Or, why not Scotland?

Donald is opening a new golf course and wanted the people of Scotland to know he is bringing new jobs to them when liberals and Socialists only talk about new jobs. He has figured out how to energize the American labor market by getting new jobs for the people of Scotland. Let me explain:

1. Build a new golf course in Scotland.

2. Hire Scots for the new golf course.

3. The new golf course needs golf balls.

4. This now provides new jobs in America for our factories which produce golf balls.

5. This also provides jobs for Americans who work  in factories which make gold clubs.

Once again, while Hillary is shouting and screaming about what she will do, Donald Trump IS doing something–creating high paying jobs for Americans who make golf balls and golf clubs!

Let’s Sit Down

Members of the Democratic party staged a Sit-in to protest failure of Republicans to vote on any meaningly logical bill that would actually do something about the ease of getting a weapon of mass destruction in this country. Veterans of sit-ins like Congressman John Lewis in their  younger days sat in restaurants to get black Americans the right to be served and the right to  vote. House Speaker Paul Ryan decided to order C-Span to close down their cameras and leave the  nation in the dark. Unfortunately for Paul, there are numerous types of technology that can be  used to record what  people are doing.

Periscope became a vehicle for showing what was going on and soon C-Span could use Periscope to record what Ryan gold them not to show. OK, there was no great victory last night, but it revealed a new sense of angry determination on the  part of Democrats to show America they have balls.
