Republicans Are Just Republicans

Well, the RepublicanParty is back on top and in charge of our legislature. It has been a few years since this group of outstanding political leaders are in a position that enables them to take responsibility for what happens in the United States of America. I am able to accurately predict the future of what will occur this year:

1. President Obama will ask Congress to fund the cost of community college education.

2. The Republican party will deny this request on grounds that when they were going to college no one paid the cost of their tuition.

3. We can expect Ted Cruz to filibuster against what Ted Cruz voted for the day before.

4. President Obama will urge some sort of tax increase which will lead Democrats on Wall Street to complain that Adolf Hitler is back in power and seeking to murder all Jews.

5. John Boehner will have a heart attack on the floor of the House of Representatives after engaging in a conversation with Tea Party members. He just cannot handle being called a “Communist.”

6. Mitch McConnell will smile which will cause the members of the Senate to fall asleep.

7. The US Congress will set a record for the most laws passed that were denied due to a veto.

8. Oh, Michelle Obama will urge Congressmen to change their diets and eat more salads.

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

Has anyone checked into who are the pilots for these planes?

Time for Republicans to push for new oil pipe lines

Fights I Would Love To Observe

The other day while having a cup of coffee my mind wandered into fantasy and I pondered fights that I would love to witness.

1. Sarah Palin vis Vladimir Putin in a wrestling match.

2. John Boehner vs Mitch McConnell is a fight over which one can utter the most platitudes.

3. Ted Cruz vs Rush Limbaugh in a contest as to who can shit the most.

4. Marco Rubio vs any Castro brother in speeches as to who best loves Cuba.

5. Fox News commentators vs a machine that contains factual information.

6. Pope Francis vs a right wing Cardinal in a praying duel as to who best represents what God desires.

7. Harvad law student Barack Obama vs an old fashioned political boss debating how to reach the average American.

8. ISIS vs al-Qaeda in a shooting match for who is the best terrorist.

Ukraine Just Wants Peace

In a recent interview with Der Spiegel, Arsenly Yatsenyuk, head of Ukraine discussed his nations conflict with Vladimir Putin. As he pointed out, “the European Union is always playing by the rules.(but) Putin plays with the rules.” Unfortunately, Ukraine is so close to Russia and so far from God or Western Europe. Make a long spit from Ukraine and you have hit the land of Russia. The Ukraine leader is a realist. “A military solution would not be the best solution to deter Russia from further aggression.” Ukraine’s reality is that Vladimir Putin has one thought in mind. “His survival depends on land grabs of foreign territories. He need new annexations.” For some reason, the people of Russia are anxious for more land grabs because it restores their pride in being a “great nation.”

Ukraine is going to build a 1,243 mile wall on the border of Russia. Sorry, this is not a good idea. The solution lies with being firm, developing the economy of his nation, getting people back to work. Those regions which of his land which so love Mother Russia will sing a new tune if people in Ukraine are living in a modern economy. “The European Union remains our dream.” So, work for that dream and don’t waste money on walls.

Jeb Bush–Fighting Moderate?

It is now clear that former Governor Jeb Bush will seek the nomination of the Republican party for the presidency in 2016. He already is being hailed as a fighting “moderate” in contrast to the loonies like Huckabee or Palin or Perry or the ever shouting Ted Cruz who has absolutely no idea about how to create a modern economy. So, let us examine the record of this “Moderate.”

As Governor of Florida:

1. He backed the “right to life” program including issuing license plates with that expression.

2. He created “faith based” prisons in which inmates could pray for salvation.

3. He eliminated race or gender as factors in admission to colleges.

4. He supported any and all gun laws including the right to “stand-your-ground.

5. He cut taxes which meant less money for schools or the poor.

6. He cut Medicaid support.

7. Of course, he opposed health care programs.

8. He supported evaluating schools based on test scores.

Yep, this is a fighting MODERATE!

McConnell Takes A Stand!

Senator Mitch McConnell told the world that he is digging in his feet, and standing up for justice, prosperity and the American people. So, what exactly does the new majority leader of the United States Senate intend to do for the American people? “We need to do everything we can to rein in the regulatory onslaught which is the principle reason that we haven’t had the kind of bounce back after the 2008 recession.” Oh, during the past year over two million new jobs were created by the dude from Africa. Oh, our economy is moving ahead, but the real problem according to the wizard from Kentucky is that President Barack Obama insists that our nation address issue of pollution that will impact the future. So, what then is the agenda of Mitch and his Republican buddies?

1. He intends to fight to the death for more oil. Thus he supports construction of the Keystone pipe line from Canada that will add to our existing supply of oil.

2. “People are tired of inaction. They want to act and put a lot of people back to work.”

Has anyone informed this idiot that gas prices are heading for $2 a gallon? Has anyone informed the Republican party that the world is awash in oil? Oh, I forgot, constructing this pipeline might provide a few thousand temporary jobs. Just what America needs-more temporary jobs?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I enjoy the feel of pages in a book.

In modern America if someone gets a cold, blame it on Obama.

Hysteria is the handmaiden of ignorance.

Americans explain while using hands.

Some wear badge of stupidity with pride.

One can not wave away a problem.

Many modern Jews have forgotten how injustice was normal in the lives of their ancestors.

boss After making a point, people take a sip of coffee

Bosse enjoys nodding heads.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Sex At 72″

Just try it at 84!

Russia, Moscow Times: “No Leadership Short Cuts”

When one had Vladimir Putin, one does not need any other leader.

USA, NY Post: “Bad Brakes Caused Accident”

Just another bad break.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Danes Want Circumcision Banned”

Ouch!

Sweden, Local: “Opera Bans Veiled Women”

I guess no more operas dealing with Arabian nights.

Should Men Be Moms?

There is a health minister in Turkey who is convinced that only women should mother a child. He made clear to all those in Turkey that men should stay away from babies and behave like men. According to Mehmet Muezzingoglu “motherhood is not a career which everyone can have. It is not a career men can have. It is a career which is never disputable sand is sacred.” Turkish writer, Eli Safaki who has a career as a writer as well as feeling able to be a mom responded: “motherhood is not a career. Turkish women should decide their own paths of life.” Of course, at this very moment all over America and many nations in the world, husbands and wives are sharing the job of raising children while they also hold down jobs.

I raised two children from the ages of one and two all by myself while I held down a job teaching in a college. I do understand how women often asked me: “do you also do the cooking and wash their clothes?” Unfortunately, I could not afford a cook or butler, so it fell to me to handle these tasks in life. Men can do any job connected with raising children except that one that involves a breast.
