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

Australia, Canberra Times:  “Cash Appointed Minister”

I assume this means there will always be money at hand.

France, Connexion: “Police Appeal For Bomber Identity”

The least the bomber can do is tell them, they DID say, Please!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Surge In Interest In Army”

Not from those running for office in America!

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Very Popular Discussion”

Among Republicans it is always the faults of President Obama.

USA, Newsday:  “Pleads Guilty Goes To Jail”

Not if he works on Wall Street!

A Solution For Republicans

The group that is running for the Republican nomination is determined not to let  into America a single immigrant. For some strange reason each and everyone of these folks has no problem with immigrants from Cuba. US law allows any Cuban immigrant who reaches America to quickly become a citizen. Last year over 175,000 reached the golden shores of America and became citizens.

Let me get this clear:

Cuban immigrants come from Latin America.

Cuban immigrants were raised in the Communist dictatorship of Cuba.

None of these LATIN AMERICAN IMMIGRANTS endures the rigorous investigation those from Syria undergo.

So, how come Donald is not going to build a dike to head off Latin American immigrants??

I eagerly await Dick Cheney’s comments on the Middle East,who else but him is an expert?

Fear reigns in America and Europe, thank God it is less scary than Adolf Hitler.

When it comes to inane comments about the world nobody can trump Trump.

Hats off to Colorado Spring cops who thought before firing.

A leaf blew in the window and Ben Carson signed it.

Ben was told he was going to see Jordan, he got out his pen to get the autograph of Michael Jordan.

Between the immigrant stories about the parents of Cruz and Rubio and their attitudes toward immigrants, now we know the reason for their anger toward immigrants–once we got here –fuck you all!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Athletes Banned For Taking Dope”

Who else but a dope would take dope?

France, Connexion: “Police Appeal For Bomber Identity”

OK, bomber, turn yourself in, PLEASE!

USA, NY Post: “Police Issued New Guns”

Great, now they can shoot new people.

Sweden, Local: “Town Hall On Fire”

Did anyone see Ted Cruz in the area?

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “I’m A Sane Gun Owner”

I just do insane things.

Donald Trump should turn to writing fiction. That’s all he talks about.

At some point, all Americans were refugees.

Such tough talk of war from Republicans who never served in the military.

Talk about ISIS turns Americans away from talk about higher minimum wages.

Bernie Sanders is dead, he simply does not come across as a leader in war.

Who knows what awaits America when fear rums rampant?

I wonder who we next hate when Muslims are not the topic?


I so enjoy the rants of Republican candidates how they will destroy ISIS by bombing or putting all Muslims in jail. Few examine the reasons for the ongoing success of ISIS. Reality is that young men and women are voluntarily seeking to become part of this group. Why?

1. ISIS offers hope of being part of some meaningful experience in a world in which few can obtain this desire.

2. ISIS offers fascinating videos on the Internet of young men doing daring things, young men shouting with glee.

3. The videos capture a spirit of belonging at a time when fewer and fewer feel they belong to any meaningful experience or group.

4. ISIs offers membership in a group of brave young men. Who cares what they are doing, they certainly come across as willing to sacrifice their lives.

5. The post industrial world emphasizes the Self, it does not enable people to feel part of the group. But, being part of the group has been the most important feeling for thousands and thousands of years.

6. Best of all ISIS provides a meaningful way to die.

How Long The Refugees?

They journey on foot, they journey using rubber boats, they journey in trucks while hidden in the back, sometimes they die in those trucks. They are the unwanted, they are the refugees who are wandering around Europe seeking a place of refuge. They are the people who frighten most Europeans because they desire to work, they desire to find a place where their children can actually go to schools without fear of being killed by bombs or nut cases dressed in black who chant death, death, death.

They are the refugees from Syria, from places in Africa, they are the modern wandering Jew. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has promised them a home in her land. We wonder how long this promise will be fulfilled. Already, she is hinting at restrictions, the voices of fear within her land grow louder. Frankly, there are just too many refugees and it is simply a matter of time before she must announce restrictions.

In modern times, the refugee is not a welcome person. Certainly, not when modern people fear terrorists or lack of work. The door will soon be shut.

Words Not Spoken By Republicans

Following are words that will not emanate from the lips of Republicans seeking the presidency.

Donald Trump: About that Plan. There is none, but I can build a wall of bullshit.

Ben Carson: OK, I admit it. I don’t have the faintest idea what a president does.

Jeb Bush: OK, OK, so my brother was a damn idiot!

Carly Fiorina: I’m a fuck up artist, and I would screw anyone, and that includes the American people.

Ted Cruz: If I encountered a man holding a gun pointing at me, I would run for my life!

John Kasich: I can’t win this damn primary, but I sure enjoy the attention.

Rand Paul. How did I get stuck on this platform with these fools?

Chris Christie: I’m a big fat fuck up.

We need some brave explorers to venture into the dark recesses of the Trump mind.

I sure wonder what Abraham Lincoln is thinking about this collection of Republicans.

Marco Rubio is slowly disappearing into the west.

Ted Cruz should begin to wear two guns on his waist. I would advise not using them.

I continue wondering what kind of doctor Ben Carson was.

Barack Obama is among the most inept leaders in history. Silence is his concept of leadership.

Being a Muslim in Republican America is like being a Jew in Nazi Germany.Same fears.

Republicans On Handling ISIS

I asked a group of Republican candidates to offer their solutions on handling the ISIS threat:

Marco Rubio –I want a comprehensive program unlike the Obama partial program.

Ted Cruz– Bomb the shit out of these infidels.

Jeb Bush –give me a moment while I check with George. He knows all about such stuff.

Carly Fiorina –Stand Tough. Stand Tall. Stand American. That’s the way to defeat ISIS. Anyone who can fire thousands of employees has the guts to take on ISIS.

Rand Paul –Do nothing, let all the Arabs fight among themselves.

John Kasich–I handled problems as governor of Ohio and I assure one and all I can handle ISIS.

Lindsay Graham –Send in the troops, let’s get some boots on the ground!
