NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Ah, to be young and to believe the world can be perfect!

In American history the only time there is great change is when Congress is controlled by a liberal majority.

Some believe that by saying something, it results in doing something.

Death in the city is not proud.

My life  has taught me to go one step at  a time. Begin with success and it builds toward greater success.

ISIS IS being slowly pushed back in the Middle East.

Barack Obama has consistently NOT been the great communicator Continue reading

So What’s New?

There is slight doubt that millions of young Americans want to get good jobs, they want to  end their student debt, they want to punish Wall Street for its behavior in stacking the deck for themselves and against the rest of America. I am 85 years old and have witnessed young Americans suddenly become fighting liberals who demand purity from those seeking office. In 1968, millions of young Americans blamed Vice President Hubert Humphrey for failing to persuade President Johnson from immediately ending the war in Vietnam. For some strange reason, a vice president lacks such power over his boss.

The end result is that millions of young Americans refused to vote and Richard Nixon became the president. We are today at a similar point in time. Yes, Hillary Clinton is not perfect. She has made mistakes along the path to seeking the presidency. Then again, who  has not? Reality, is that a failure to vote for her means whoever the Republicans nominate will win. And,THAT means, the Supreme Court will continue denying the right to vote, it will continue allowing the wealthy to use their money to ensure the top one percent remain the top one percent.

Hopefully, young Americans will learn from past mistakes. Hopefully, that is.

Let’s Not Vote

The initial expansion of the right to vote in America occurred during the election Andrew Jackson in 1828. The fight to ensure that even women could vote did not occur until a hundred years later when women go the franchise. Of course, what I  just wrote is NOT exactly true because black skinned men and women really did not get the right to vote until the 1960s. Oops, that statement is not exactly true because Southern whites have been fighting for half a century to continue denying the right to vote by blacks and poor people.

A few months ago Arizona held its primaries for Republicans and Democrats. The State government reduced the number of polling places from 200 to 70 so many people never actually got the opportunity to vote. Oh, I forgot that Republicans are concerned about not allowing fraud in voting. In the 2012 election of the over one hundred million who did vote, fifteen cases were uncovered of voter fraud!

So, this year each Republican controlled state will  be working hard to deny the right to vote by THOSE PEOPLE– and you know who are THOSE PEOPLE!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

After his political career ends, Ted Cruz can get many movie parts as the evil guy.

Being raised as an Orthodox Jew  I can never figure our why people are so upset at anyone having something on the top of their head.

I am in wonder how these days a baseball player who hits 200 makes more in a  year than Babe Ruth did in his lifetime.

God Bless Kobe Bryant for ending his career scoring 60 points in a  game.

Oh well, it is Thursday in Chicago and only one person shot to death.

Story of train dispatcher who sent eleven people to their death because he had to play video games!

Am I queer, I have never  played a video game?

Where Is Leadership?

I was raised when Franklin Roosevelt was President, and then witnessed the remarkable successful leadership of plain-speaking Harry Truman. Dwight Eisenhower became a calm, effective leader who would not give in to demagogues such as Senator Joseph McCarthy–think Donald Trump or Ted Cruz–and then came John Kennedy. Heck, Richard Nixon did a remarkable leadership role in foreign policy. Compared to the latest group of so-called leaders of Republicans, Ronald Reagan comes across as a voice of reason.

What does an effective leader accomplish? He brings together all factions within society in order to accomplish tasks needed by ALL members of society. Republican Dwight Eisenhower never repealed a single law from the New Deal  because those laws made America a more peaceful and caring society. John Kennedy asked “what can  you do for America”rather than what can you get from America. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz seek to turn Americans against one another. They NEVER propose anything that would address the needs of poor or middle class Americans. A great leader such as Abraham Lincoln refused to urge hatred toward the South even though over 400,000 Union soldiers were killed by those from the South.

Bernie preaches anger and hate–yes, I agree the top one percent are bastards, but if the only message is hate, that merely tears society into pieces. An issue is challenging  the top one  percent to conduct their affairs with recognition that ALLl Americans must succeed if there is to be an American Nation. Where is an American leader who challenges each and every American to work for the prosperity of All AMERICANS?

A Fixed System?

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?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

No political candidate these days ever discusses the situation in Afghanistan. We still have thousands of soldiers in it.

I confess to being absolutely bored with the lack of any coherent discussion concerning the Middle East.

I wonder if there is another Earth out there in the universe which contains intelligent life forms?

Republicans rant and rave about ending relations with Iran over the nuclear accord while there is North Korea which IS working on a-bombs.

If Ted Cruz is the BEST alternative for Republicans, why not just close down this political party.

These days I really miss the intelligence of Rick Perry.

I think Republicans should book a circus to entertain people during their convention.

Then again, they already have booked a circus!

 

Rick Snyder–Come Home

It was just a year ago that former business executive and current governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder entertained ideas of seeking the Republican nomination for president. Just think if we had a Rick Snyder who does not believe in any government agencies telling states what to do this nation would have millions and millions of more high paying jobs. Unfortunately, along the road to this  dream goal, Rick sort of got side tracked. Flint, Michigan wound up with contaminated water because Rick and the anti-EPA crowd wanted to end government telling we people how to behave and how to get water.

Fortunately, for Rick he changed the law which originally said that citizens had 90 days to secure  names on petitions for a recall election. Now they must accomplish this task in 60 days. So far, there are 108,000 who have signed up of the 790,ooo needed. Of course, this entire mess was created by a bunch of people who for one reason or another do not want to drink flavored water.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

These days Republicans hold their noses when voting.

Not a single candidate from either party has discussed the impact of technology on unemployment–how come?

This is the first presidential campaign in history in which how one pisses or shits is an issue.

Republicans have shifted from the unborn child to the born penis as an issue.

OH well, baseball is back and we don’t have to vote who wins or loses.

Its Monday in Chicago and someone will get shot today.

American politicians talk about wiping out Muslim terrorists but not a single one has a son who will fight in such a battle.

Its Ted Vs Donald

Republicans who rejected such excellent candidates such as:

Jeb Bush –Rand Paul–Ben Carson–Carly Fiorina–Rick  Perry- Rick Santorum-Mike Huckabee –Ben Carson — and add any other name that enters your mind- are now confronted with the likes of Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. So, how do these two stalwarts stack up against one another?

Immigration– both want to deport twelve million

Hispanic terrorists–both want to build a BIG wall.

Taxes– Ted wants to  have everyone pay 10% and Donald wants to make everyone wealthy.

Terrorism–Ted wants to carpet bomb anything that moves–Donald wants to kill every single one of these bastards!

Women –Ted wants to control the bodies of women, Donald wants to insult every woman.

Israel –Ted loves Israel more than anyone, Donald has given more checks to Israel groups than anyone.

IRS–Ted wants to abolish it, Donald has yet to take a stand about it.

Health care–Ted  wants to end all government programs, Donald wants to give everyone a GREAT health care program.

GOD, both are for HIM.

Muslims– both do agree to get rid of them over there and over here.

On the Republican Party– both are disliked, but Ted less so.
