The Clothes Police

The people of Iran, particularly young people, are confronted every day  by the “moral police” whose job is to prevent anyone from displaying too much skin. I understand that many conservatives in America hate Iran because it seeks to control what individuals, particularly women, can or cannot wear in public. However, those who oppose Iranian efforts to control what can be worn, have no hesitation in imposing clothing bans on Muslim females. Nations such as Germany or France make wearing the burqa in government offices a crime, as well as wearing one in public.

There is now a huge outcry against the burkini which some Muslim wear while going swimming. Of course, throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in America the vast majority of women who went swimming were completely covered with clothes. Don’t people have better things to do with their time than worry about how a female is dressed while swimming. Of course, as a sexual freak, I want to see the entire  body naked, oh to gaze at the boobs!!

So, Muslim women stay out of my dreams!

Medicine And Rights

Several Catholic health care providers have launched a lawsuit agains the federal government because their rights –as Catholics, I assume– have been violated because the EVIL GOVERNMENT insists they treat transgender patients. Somehow, they have reached the conclusion that if transgender patients are  provided medical care, this translates into the EVIL GOVERNMENT forcing them to operate in order to transform a boy into a girl or vice versa.

As I read this story the image of Pope Francis entered my mind. Can anyone, and that anyone includes Catholics, imagine Pope Francis denying medical care to a transgender person? One can imagine an Orthodox Jewish doctor arguing he cannot work at a hospital because they do not serve kosher food.

Hillary –Just Shut UP!

These days the two most boring, the two most obnoxious stories about life in modern times is the tale of emails and the words of Ryan Lochte. Mr. Lochte can not cease repeating the word, “exaggerate” which somehow explains away his drunken episode that he and his buddies carried out in a Brazilian gas station. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton just cannot cease talking about her infamous emails. She now claims Colin Powell urged her to have a private server, he denies the story. Back to the merry-go-round of person A says X, while person B says Y.

Advice to Hillary Clinton:

1. Quietly, and loudly say: “I made a terrible mistake in having a private server. To tell the truth, I really did not know why I should have one,  but I went and got one.
2. As of this date, despite the constant clamor about emails, not a single email has emerged that indicated it was something important.

3. I repeat, I made a serious mistake.That is the bad news, the good news is there is no evidence any secret was obtained by foreign sources.

I learned my lesson. Never again any private server.

Trump Spells Out His Plan

The “new” Donald Trump made a speech. OK, he continued to wave his tiny arms in order to make a point. But, Donald wanted one and all to know that he had a plan to make America Great Again. We offer the specifics of his plan:

I am going to bring back high paying jobs from China.

I am going to make certain that coal miners have high paying jobs.

I am going to wipe out ISIS, frankly, it will be easy.

I am going to end the Death tax and make certain those with over a few million do not have to pay a Death Tax.

I am going to build a Great Wall.

I am going to ensure that each American young person can attend college.

I am going to cut taxes.

I am going to balance the budget.

Trust me,trust me, I am a Great Businessman who has created thousands and thousands of jobs. Just ask the maids in my hotels about the high salaries they earn!

OH, please, let’s not get into details.

Cover Up! Or, Don’t!

I  was born in 1930 at a time when women still wore one piece bathing suits. Most regarded themselves as more liberal, more daring, more sexy than women in earlier years who really covered their entire body. Then, came the  joyous 1940s when this perverted little boy gaze with wonder and awe at the new thing–bikini bathing suits. Oh,my God, we now could really see that women had bulging breasts! What a joy going to Coney Island now became. But, in all honesty, most American women retained the full body swim suit for the coming twenty years.

France is now in turmoil over the burkina. It is a swim suit for women that covers up their body,just as we used to do in America. According to French Prime Minister  the burkinis “are not compatible with the values of France.” Let me get this straight: France is worried to death about death from terrorists, but its prime minister is most worried about how Muslim women dress in the water! Which values require wearing a bikini?

Frankly, the only “value” pertaining to a bikini is sex crazed teen boys like I used to be! Take one guess what we did in the water while gazing at women in a bikini?

P.S. I can assure the prime minister, we would never have had sexual thoughts when gazing at Muslim women wearing a burkini.

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

The circus just came to town and Donald Trump will be the ringmaster of it.

If ignorance of American history was a virtue, then Donald Trump would be a saint in heaven.

Frankly, I would hate to be halted by Brazilian police as our swimmers were the other night.

We Americans love our guns, and our guns love to kill us.

If there were no emails to discuss, what then would Trump discuss?

We Americans certainly are Great Again in the Olympics.

I doubt if Donald Trump could pass the basic immigrant test about American history.

I so wish that Hillary Clinton could speak in terms that lift hearts.

Crooked Trump Campaign Manager

Donald Trump can not express a single idea without also saying, “Crooked Hillary Clinton.” Of course, there are currently over one hundred law suits against Trump enterprises for failure to pay people who provided services for them. I do believe such behavior falls into the category of “crooked.” However, Paul Manafort, the current Trump campaign manager–at least until a new one appears– is being investigated for illegal activities.

Mr.Manafort aided the campaign of a Ukraine politician who was a buddy of Vladimir Putin. The people of Ukraine finally drove this character from office. However, Manafort did provide services to a foreign diplomat. Federal law requires lobbyists to inform the Justice Department if they represent foreign entities. The question is whether or not he routed $2.2 million to Washington lobbyists. Since Donald does not allow any crooked people to work for him, we assume he will provide any and all information concerning the lobbying activities of his campaign manager–at least his campaign manager of this moment.

Chicago Tribune Idiot Of Day

I ordinarily each day have to endure the stupidity of Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass, but every so often he allows some senile old Jewish gentleman named Ron Grossman to offer his stupidity of the day. Yesterday, Mr. Grossman wrote: “Donald Trump has single-handedly transformed the Republican Party from a champion of big business to a voice for the white working class.” Of course, there are some other groups who belong in the “working class” such as blacks, or Hispanics or Asians. But, to Mr. Grossman, Donald is the voice of workers!

Donald Trump wants to ensure that “workers who have been paying taxes do not have to pay a tax when they die.” WOW, what a brilliant statement in support of workers! Of course, prior to any Trump plan, 99.9% of workers do NOT pay a death tax. Only one percent of Americans pay this tax. Of course, according to the Trump plan, his family would save millions if he dropped dead tomorrow.

White workers, ALL workers, need higher wages. But, Donald, opposes raising the minimum wage. ALL workers need day care, but Donald never mentions this issue. ALL workers have children who need student debt relief, but Donald never mentions this. Of course, Donald wants to bring back “high paying jobs from China.” Mrs. Zang just took a  position in Washington D.C. for a Chinese news agency. She noted to an American colleague: “why do Americans want to bring back jobs from China, they are all low paying jobs!”

P.S. Oh,Mr.Grossman, the US also EXPORTS GOODS. Place high tariffs on incoming goods,and there will be high tariffs on our exports.

The Art Of The Deal

Donald Trump  so enjoys noting that “his”book, The Art of the Deal has been a  best seller for years. In this book, he demonstrates his mastery of business, and can guarantee that anyone  who reads this brilliant piece of scholarship will, almost instantly, become successful in business, and in  life. Who knows, you men might wind up with three beautiful wives,and at least one hundred law suits filed by angry, losers who do not enjoy being  a loser.

Tony Schwartz in an article last month in The New Yorker revealed that Donald Trump did not write The Art of the Deal. Mr. Schwartz had written an article which described Trump as ” a ham-fisted thug who had not been successful in  evicting rent-controlled tenants.” Ordinarily, a person described in such tones would be furious, but not Donald. He called Schwartz and asked if he would ghost write a book, that book was The Art of the Deal. Proof that he had a ghost writer? Ordinarily, a ghost writer receives 10% of royalties, Mr.Schwartz received 50%.

Tony writes: “I genuinely believe if Trump wins  and gets the nuclear codes,there is an excellent possibility  it will lead to the end of civilization.”

The Danger of Words

Anyone who lived through the 1960s is quite familiar with the power of words to destroy. Within a ten year period, President John Kennedy was murdered, Malcolm X was killed, Martin Luther King was murdered, and two months later Robert Kennedy was murdered. Perhaps, perhaps, Donald Trump is oblivious to the danger of his words, I  am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. But, his nonstop shouting hate and anger toward Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton could easily be interpreted by some of the nut cases attending his rallies to blast away.

Yuval Rabin, son of former Israel Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin warned Americans of the danger of shouting hate. His father was killed by an Israel hater who was  urged on to hate by people like Benjamin Netanyahu. ‘Trumps’s  words are an incitement  to the type of political violence that touched me personally.” Netanyahu continued to claim Rabin was a “traitor” for seeking peace with Palestinians. One day, someone transformed those words into action. Will the same occur in America?
