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!

We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.
NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
Once upon a time we Americans built great roads and bridges, today we can’t even repair those roads and bridges.
Some day Ted will explain how we ensure people pay accurate taxes when there is no IRS.
These days I wish George Bush was still president, I mean a Republican president.
I would so wish to see Bernie and Donald face off against one another.
I can just see it, my dream is greater than your dream!
I wonder what Abraham Lincoln thinks about his party up in Heaven.
Some days I wish we could have a great political debate about absolutely NOHING!

Donald Trump has uncovered a fascinating aspect of the American political system. “The system, folks, is rigged. It’s a rigged dirty system. I say this to the RNC and I say this to the Republican party. You’re going to have a big problem folks, because there are people who don’t like what’s going on.” Donald believes there is only one person who should be the Republican party and guess who is that man?
Ironically, it is Donald Trump who has now become the spokesperson for reform of American politics. Yes, Donald, the system is rigged. Imagine that a wealthy person with gobs of dough to throw around winds up as a candidate of the Republican party? We certainly have come a long way from an era in which ordinary men could become a President. Harry Truman was a high school graduate who lacked any source of income and HE became the president. Oh, and after leaving the office of president he refused to allow his name to be used by any business corporation. The sum total of what he received after leaving the presidency was –ZERO. When was the last time an ordinary political leader won the office of president. Another ironic aspect of this idea is that was Bill Clinton -before he became wealthy using the names of “President.’
The system is rigged for those with money who want to use the system to help those with money get more and more money. And guess who is the symbol of this rigged system?
