Send In The Guns

During the past decade we Americans have fought for attaining the goal of schools in which children learn without any fear of being subjected to physical violence. The state of Texas has gone even further with legislation that enables each and every student to, not only bring their books to school, but bring their guns. Just think how safe teachers will feel knowing each and every kid is carrying a loaded weapon. Pose a question,inform the student he is wrong, and then duck or run for your life!

Schools in Douglas County, Colorado have  taken another step to securing a safe school environment. They are now arming security personnel with assault rifles. So, when a shooter blasts away, he will face a response from a dozen assault rifles. Perhaps, it is time  to train children in how to protect themselves from those who allegedly are there to protect them. I got the solution: Arm each student with an assault rifle and let everyone blast away!

U. Of California- Sex Center?

Many,many years ago I spent a wonderful year at the University of California at Berkeley, a center of liberalism, a college that fought of human rights and was among the initial institutions supporting equal rights for women. So, fast forward to 2016 and what now has happened to this bastion of liberalism?

Geoffrey Marcy, a noted astronomer has  resigned following reports  that he was going to be censured by his colleagues for a long series of alleged sexual harassment of female students. There apparently are even more students ready to testify.

Claude Steel, Vice Chancellor  of the  University of  California has resigned for his failure to act on sexual harassment  allegations. I was  under the assumption these professors were the guardians of human rights, not the ones violating human rights. I await Berkeley students marching to make their college faculty free zones!

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

From Ted Cruz: “America is always at  her best when she is flat on  her back on the mat.”

From my three month old grandson: “America is always at her back when she is flat on her back and peeing in her diaper.”

From a Trump supporter: “America is always at her best when she is flat other back as long as she buys American made goods.”

From the NRA: “American babies in cribs are always at their best when flat on their backs in cribs when they have a gun to protect themselves.”

From Donald: “America is always at her best when she is flat on her back gazing up at the Greatest Wall ever built.”

From John Kasich:  “America is always at her best when she is flat on her back figuring out how to balance the budget–as I single-handedly did!”

From Ben Carson: “America is always at there best when she is flat on her back getting ready for me to cut open her body and save her.”

Is Bernie Upset?

This is not the best of times, this is not the goal that Senator Bernie Sanders had succeeded to attain. He got walloped in New York even though he was born in the great borough of Brooklyn. But, Bernie continues to fulminate and complain about the fact Hillary Clinton has taken money from the capitalists. OK,so Barack Obama took money from hedge fund operatives, and the end result was that Barack Obama was doing their bidding while President?

Bernie, John Kennedy got millions from the rich, even Franklin D. Roosevelt who was hated by the rich got money. Yes, Bernie, most Republicans DO take money from the wealthy. The Koch brothers  are raising over $800 million from wealthy folks to win this election –and that money is NOT going to Hillary Clinton. I have a hunch that  your wonderful small donation folks will NOT match the Koch brothers. Bernie, there ARE some decent wealthy folks. And, there are some poor and working class folks who adore Donald Trump.

So, tone down the rhetoric and get on with winning this year!

BYU–Phew!

Brigham Young University is a nice Mormon college which is dedicated to preparing nice Mormon boys and girls  to enjoy a nice, clean Mormon life. Made Barney, 19, met a supposed nice Mormon man named Nasiru Seidu who did not tell her that he was married, did not tell her his right age, and did not tell even tell her his real name. They went out, he assaulted her even though she shouted, NO, and she was raped. Normally, a college would be concerned about this incident.

Authorities at BYU sent her a letter. “We have received information that you have been a victim of behavior that is addressed by the University Sexual Misconduct Policy. We have also received information that you have engaged in behavior that violates the BYU honor code.” She has been barred from registering for further classes. It appears that quite a fews BYU students regard this statements outrageous. I wonder why.

Uncle John Has Some Advice

It has now become a common view of political analysts who discuss the Republican nominees seeking the presidency to identify John Kasich as the leading “moderate.” He recently was asked in one of his town halls a question from a female college student. She asked that after became president, what would he do to make her “feel safer and more secure  regarding sexual violence, harassment and rape.” As I mentioned, John is the moderate and not prone to respond in crazy rants like the two other guys.

He responded:  “I’d also give you  one bit of advice. Don’t got to parties where there’s a lot of alcohol.” There is no question that uncle John is the right man to ask about date rape and such violence against women. Of course, he could have said: “Dear, my advice is to avoid any social gatherings at which males are present. I  guarantee that would avoid sexual violence or rape.”

John Kasich is a “moderate’ only if compared to Donald and Ted. Perhaps, John would like to impose Sharia law which prevents women from having any social contact with males unless accompanied by a male relative.

Harriet Tubman Makes The Twenty

OK, I admit to nor being the most Politically Correct person that writes on the Internet. I ordinarily find most political correct positions rather funny, if not boring. So the Treasury Department has decided to place the picture of Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill and send Andrew Jackson into oblivion. Quick, without consulting any other source, exactly what did Harriet Tubman do to make her so famous? She did tireless work saving many slaves by guiding them north. She was brave, she took risks and she deserves the gratitude of society.

On the other hand, Eleanor Roosevelt was a tireless fighter for human rights as the wife of President Franklin Roosevelt. So, what did she do?

1. She personally was responsible for ensuring that thousands of migrants had decent living conditions.

2. She  established the first group of Negroes who would provide information and present ideas for the President. Without her “unofficial Cabinet,” the voices of Negroes would never have been heard.

3. She is responsible for the Air Force creating the Tuskeegee Airmen.

4. She was advisor to countless young women seeking to enhance civil rights including Pauli Murray a Negro fighter for human rights.

5. There is a seemingly endless list of women she aided.

6. She was the first U.S. female ambassador to the UN when it began.

I could go on and on about her fight for human rights. So,who would you place on the twenty dollar bill?

Let’s Build A Tunnel

The state of Israel has considerable problems on its border with  Gaza. Each day, Hamas soldiers are digging tunnels leading to Israel and this annoys Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Every day, literally, Israel forces uncover a new tunnel. During the invasion of Gaza several months ago, the Israel army blew up, and flooded hundreds of tunnels. Now, the Israel Army claims it has discovered a sure fire way of identifying  a new tunnel and all they have to do is flood it with water.

The last tunnel built in the New York area occurred over a hundred years ago. I am somewhat confused, how can a bunch of Arabs build hundreds os tunnels and we Americans can’t even build a new tunnel leading from New Jersey to Manhattan? So, the solution:

Bring a few thousand Israel soldiers to Manhattan. Allow several thousand Arabs to occupy the heights across the Hudson river. Tell the Arabs to build tunnels, lots of tunnels and maybe we will not have traffic jams leading into Manhattan.

Of course, if Donald becomes president, he might build the greatest tunnel known to humanity.

NOODY ASKED ME BUT

Take away the word,”great” and Donald Trump is reduced to silence.

If Donald Trump can really build a 500 mile wall for only $10 million, he certainly should be the new president.

Every time I hear Ted Cruz speak, the word,”sleaze” comes to mind.

We need a president who believes ALL lives matter.

So, what happened in New York to Bernie Sanders?

Gee, John Kasich is  in heaven, he came in second in New York.

Some day John Kasich will explain to me how A member of Congress is in charge of determining the national budget.

So Hillary, Speak Sense

The Hillary Clinton who spoke last night was confident, tough, and ready to take on the quest for the presidency. She has come a long way from last year when her  message was vague, and she had not yet confronted a challenge that was tough, that pushed and pushed and made  her prepared to take on Donald Trump. So, what now is left for the final conclusion of her initial campaign?

How about this speech: “Let me first say to Senator Bernie Sanders that it is time to bring our two campaigns together. The ONLY important issue today is to ensure a Democrat is president come January, 2017. But, the presidency is only one aspect of the new  political alignment that is necessary. We have to work together to regain control of Congress. How can that be accomplished? We need groups that presently support my candidacy, and we need groups that you have energized. I therefore propose that we present this nation our joint candidacy. I will seek the presidency and you will be my running mate. Let’s energize the entire American society in the task of ending Republican hate and negativism with a new birth for a modern 21st century America.”
