Vladimir On Center Stage

There is only one place that makes Vladimir Putin feel comfortable or welcome,and that is center stage on the world. He went to the United Nations and actually,not only talked with President Obama, but shook his hand. Putin is ready for action, whether it be attacking gays and lesbians in Russia or attacking ISIS in Syria. Of course, the great Russian army has yet to actually take the stage in fighting people since the 1990s when it bombed to hell ‘terrorists’ in Chechnya. Since then it has handled gays and lesbians with firmly, as well as women who sing songs that Vladimir does not like.

Anyway, there are now Russian planes in Syria,and Vladimir is ready to have his ‘advisors’ empower Syrian soldiers to bomb the hell out of Syrian towns, kill some thousands of civilians, and somehow, end the war in Syria. At this point in time,Obama is ready to welcome just about anyone to fight against ISIS. Has he considered:

1. Ted Cruz might lead fervent Christians into battle for the Lord.

2. Or, Scott Walker now has time to actually fight someone who can shoot back. After all,he handled unions with great talent.

Just imagine, Ted Cruz and Vladimir Putin leading Christians into battle for the Lord!

Let’s Get The Baby Killers!

Republican congressmen had their knives ready for the arrival of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood. Among other attacks on Ms. Richards, Republicans were upset that she earned $520,000! Day after day men and women from Wall Street appear in Congress and they ordinarily earn millions of dollars, heck, some earn $100,000,000 but not a squeak out of Republicans –they probably want to solicit some of those millions in campaign donations.

Cecile Richards was calm,she spoke with clarity, she responded to their questions with a sense of dignity. “Planned Parenthood has been in the news recently because of deceptively edited videos released by a group dedicated to making abortion illegal.”

She displayed dignity and responsibility. Sorry, those qualities are not ordinary ones found in this Congress.

Pope Francis Is Gone–For Now

Well, Pope Francis has left the United States and left in his wake some Republicans such as John Boehner wondering which moral and ethical principles a Catholic must adhere to in the political world. There is no doubt that John Boehner was impacted–as a Catholic- regarding his political beliefs–and behavior- which resulted in his departure as leader of House Republicans. Unfortunately, Catholics like Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush were left in confusion regarding moral issues for a Catholic.

For Pope Francis, the real story is what comes next in his life as a Catholic leader.For example:

1. Can he institute any changes for the role of women in the Catholic church?

2. Can he speak for the rights of homosexuals as Catholics?

3. Can he alter the power of conservative Cardinals?

4. Can he address the issue of birth control and abortion?

Most probably the answers to these questions begin by reducing the power of conservative Cardinals to hamper reform.

Rouhani On Republicans

Iran President Hassan Rouhani sits in Tehran with a smile on his face as Republican after Republican boasts of their desire to bomb the hell out of Iran and bring peace and prosperity to the Middle East. “Sometimes, when I have time, some of the Republican debate was broadcast live and I would watch it, some of it was laughable. It was very strange, the things that they spoke of. Some of them wouldn’t even know where Tehran was in relation to Iran. Some of them didn’t even know where Iran was geographically.”

Such observations on the political situation in the Middle East are unfair to Republicans. Heck, some of them do not even know the President of the United States was born in that country. The real ignorance among Republicans is:

1. None of them knows that the CIA working with the British MI6 destroyed democracy in August, 1953 by overthrowing Prime Minister Mossadegh and allowing the Shah to gain power. This played out in the 1970s when the Shah was overthrown and clerics seized power.

Never expect any Republican to know anything about Middle Eastern history.

Water On Mars!

NASA has now reported the presence of water on Mars.I now expect the following proposals from Republicans>

1. Donald Trump, we no longer need that wall, just send them to Mars, there is water to drink, go plant peaches.

2. Ben Carson: Where is this place named Mars?

3. Chris Christie: I can foul up the George Washington Bridge, just watch what I do on Mars!

4. Jeb Bush: Thanks to my brother providing funds for NASA we now have water on Mars.

5. Carly Fiorina: I can lick any Martian with a hand tied behind my back.

6. First,Obama opened up Cuba and now he wants us to have relations with Martians!

7. Rand Paul: I oppose any foreign entanglements.

Let’s Cut Taxes Says Donald

Among the continual claims of the Republican Party is that reducing taxes will lead to an economic boom. Well,look at the record:

During WWII the top tax was 91% of income.

This tax rate continued throughout the 1950s while Dwight Eisenhower,a Republican was president. There is no question that during this period, job creation boomed and workers were able to earn a salary that enabled them to purchase a home and send kids to college. There are NO reports of any wealthy people dying due to paying this high tax rate.

A higher tax rate continued up to 1980 when Ronald Reagan reduced the rate and then discovered he had to RAISE TAXES.

Well,Donald is offering a solution that ends taxes on low wage earners, it REDUCES TAXES for the wealthy from 39.6% to 25%.Somehow losing this income will somehow enable the federal government to have sufficient funds to function.

Carly Is A Tough Woman

Each person who seeks the presidency must initially present a persona,an image that would resonate with people,and in some way or other present themselves as a tough guy-or gal–who is ready to meet the bad guy at the OK Corral and shoot it out. Carly Fiorina is determined to take on terrorist groups such as Planned Parenthood and let them know when the sheriff is in town, they had better head on out. Carly is not afraid to stand up to an organization that has been around most of the twentieth century without causing much fuss.

But, these are new times and we need tough sheriffs to save us from terrorists. After taking care of Planned Parenthood, Carly went after the US Senate which issued a comprehensive and well documented study that proved waterboarding produced little if any meaningful information. According to Carly, the report “undermined the morale of a whole lot of people who dedicated their lives to keeping the country safe.”

Carly,the EVIDENCE concluded they did NOT keep the country safe. Carly Fiorina is a modern version of Senator Joseph McCarthy.


We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.



If ignorance was a virtue, Republican candidates would be angels in Heaven.

Come on, God, Ben Carson as PRESIDENT!!

After hearing Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio declaim on foreign policy, Donald comes across as intelligent.

I often wonder these days how I got stuck in America with all these weirdos.

Poor Hillary, if only emails had not been invented.

Say, whatever happened to that guy named Jeb?

Storm In A Teacup

The Tea Party decided to have a tea party but the enemy was not the British, but one of their own kind. They declared war on John Boehner who undoubtedly represented the worse form of liberal. He simply did not wish to wage war on Planned Parenthood since there were a few more important issues than an organization which provides information and services to women. Gee, they assist women to remain healthy even when hey are dealing with pregnancy.Boehner understood the House of Representatives could pass a bill that defunded Planned Parenthood, but President Obama would simply veto the bill and everyone would be back to square one.

No doubt, Congressman Boehner, a devout Catholic took to heart words of compassion from the Pope. Boehner is a tired man who has spent past few years defending hate and hate. He just got so tired that he needed a time out from politics and so he has resigned. The Tea Party will continue on its juvenile delinquent path and there will be speech after speech, but the end result will be– nothing changes.

Another Day, Another Dead Black Man

Some wish for gorgeous sunny days, some wish for finding money on the street, and some wish for a day without the shooting of an unarmed black man. Keith McLeod may not have been the wisest person on this planet, most probably, he was sort of angry and bitter and fixing for a fight with someone. Those of us raised on the streets of New York early learned an important lesson–never pick a fight with someone who has the ability to hurt or kill you. In those cases, head in the opposite direction.

Keith went to a pharmacy and attempted to get cough syrup using a false prescription. This was not the brightest ideas one can have, but, what the heck, what is the worse scenario for seeking medicine without a proper prescription? For Keith,the end result was a confrontation with police and he wound up getting killed for using a finger as a weapon of mass destruction.Oh Keith, the number two lesson I learned in the slums is–when you encounter a cop, be extra polite and do as he desires. At least you will not wind up dead.
