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

If everybody in America is Great according to Donald, how come the US is not  A Great Nation?

Not a single Republican seeking office expresses a single word about the needs poor people.

Republicans insist the US paid “ransom” to Iran. This is the first time in history when the group seeking ransom wanted the other guys to pay them their own money in ransom.

So now, according to Republicans, Hillary is mentally unstable. Difficult to believe when a mentally unstable person charges others with being mentally unstable.

I wonder if in France one must take off the towel when in a steam bath to protect French values?

After a speech by Donald Trump I’m ready to listen with sympathy to Ryan Lochte. Ryan has such a soothing voice.

So Donald is going to get “95%” of  the black American vote. Sounds reasonable since Obama only got 93%.

There is one characteristic of Trump that is familiar to this New Yorker, he can’t utter a sentence without waving his arms.

I feel suddenly lost, no Olympic contests to watch, only men and women shouting about how we must vote.

If stupidity was a crime, requiring deportation, this country finally would get rid of its Republicans.

Donald has “plans,” and Hillary has emails. Which of these two is the more boring story?

I must confess that Ryan Lochte does look sincere. However, he reminds me of the kid who mom found in the cookie jar.

How come Sanders and Trump people always talk about IMPORTS but not a word about EXPORTS?

Ironically, the Clinton model was Donald Trump–make gobs of money rather than the Jimmy Carter model of engaging in service to others–without any thought of pay.

Not a word from Donald about the fantastic performance of our Olympic squad–they certainly made Americans feel Great.

How come Great Britain almost passed the one billion Chinese in medals?

Trump supporters on CNN always refer to him as “Mr. Trump” while Clinton supporters frequently say, “Hillary.”

Trump went to Baton Rouge to hand out packages, for some reason, he just never got the urge to go to Vietnam and hand out bullets.

If being a  coward was a virtue, Donald Tump, the draft dodger during the Vietnam war would be a Saint.

I wonder why Donald Trump never once has cited his German ancestry.

Red Headed Trump Helps Black Folks

Black Americans can now feel safe because there is a new red headed sheriff in town whose only goal is ensuring that black folks get a good job, live in safety, and learn to vote for him. His message is clear:

1. The African Barack Obama stole the election from John McCain. You know,the loser who got captured in Vietnam.

2. The Great Recession began when Obama became president. Before he took office, every black person in this nation had a good high paying job, and lived in safe neighborhoods. Today, not a single African American can leave their home for fear of getting shot.

3.Under the Obama administration, over 90% of African Americans live in poverty and can not get through the day without Food Stamps. I am going to change things for the better. How? I can not reveal my plan because Crooked Hillary Clinton would steal it!

4. I love black folks, I love the black maids we hire at Trump hotels,and we pay them the incredible salary of $7.25 an hour! We also have thousands, thousands of black dudes working as porters, handling the garbage, and  being bus boys!

So, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?

Elect me and your child is guaranteed a job at any Trump hotel as a maid or porter! I love you ALL.

UN Needs Reform

The United Nations was formed in the aftermath of World War II. It was an assumption at that time the world needed some form of international armed force that could quickly come to the aid of people facing terrorism. UN soldiers have served in Africa for decades. Unfortunately, during their tenure, repeated stories emerge of UN troops raping, or robbing or failing to protect the innocent. I admit there is evidence of UN troops actually playing a role in fostering peace, but the African situation demonstrates the failure of UN forces.

A 10,000 man UN force is in the South Sudan to protect people caught in a violent civil war. These men stood by and did nothing to protect thousands of people from being attacked, and women raped. Actually, the UN  force was within ear shot of the violence, and just minded their  own business. There is need for a complete overhaul of the UN army. It must be a permanent body of professional soldiers who are committed to the concept of peace and protection of the innocent.

Good lord! Donald actually read from a script!

Someone in the Trump camp should make Donald end those facial expressions, hardly presidential.

I assume Ted Cruz is delighted with the current presidential campaign.

For Republicans, when desiring to frighten Americans, they just shout: LAW AND ORDER!

Reality for the world, as ISIS collapses in the Middle East, it is left with the need to carry out attacks in cities of the Western world.

Is Mike Pence in this election, never hear from him.

I bet John McCain prays for the defeat of Donald Trump.

ISIS Is Shrinking

Donald Trump and Republicans continue to demand the end of ISIS. So, what is the reality about ISIS. So far, ISIS has lost 40% of the area in Iraq it once controlled. It has been driven from Fallujah, and it has lost areas in Syria. Last week, the last stronghold in Libya, Sirte, was taken by anti-ISIS forces. Only remnants of ISIS soldiers are left in Libya.

But, the key fight is in Iraq. ISIS continues to control the major city of Mosul. However, Kurdish forces and the Iraq army are moving on this city. Kirkuk, which is close to Mosul is now witnessing hundreds of people who once accepted ISIS moving out of the city. Some are telling observers they would quickly accept amnesty from the Iraq government since they no longer believe that ISIS benefits them in any way. They report that ISIS soldiers are now selling goods they once seized from inhabitants such as stoves or record players or kitchen implements.

ISIS will lost Mosul by the early months of 2017 which means, in effect, they no longer have a presence in Iraq. So Donald, what is it that you want to do?

Given the fantastic success of our athletes in the Olympics, will Donald promise to make America Great Again in future Olympics?

I suspect that Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump begin the day by gazing into the mirror and saying: “I’m the Greatest!”

What do the tax returns of Donald Trump reveal? How about the Russians hacking into them.

Some day a Trump economist will explain to me how reducing taxes by trillions for the wealthy enables the average American to go on a buying spree.

Each year thirty thousand die as a result of gun violence–most by themselves- but no one in Congress considers this a problem. Wonder why?

I’m still waiting for George H.W. Bush to comment on Trump.

Miracle in 2016, Donald Trump gave a speech with hands by his sides!

I await Donald holding aloft a rifle and shouting–“off with her head!”

Ironically, every poll shows the vast majority of Americans want gun control laws, but they can not be passed.

The Republican party is on the road to a split up. Crazies vs thinkers.

Emails have created more political problems than phones ever did.

Rule of political life, never write insulting things, just say them.

Miracle in Chicago, a single day without someone getting shot.

Then again, miracle in America, a single day without someone getting shot.

Uncle Tom On Trump

Every so often on CNN there is some black dude, whether it be Ben Carson or some other distinguished looking black guy, but there pitch is that Donald Trump is the black man’s hero. So, I asked Uncle Tom to explain:

“Donald Trump is the only white guy in America, or white gal, for that matter who can create jobs in black neighborhoods. Look at his record: he personally created thousands and thousands of jobs in the private sector so it is simply a matter of time before he creates millions and millions of jobs. Let me cite an example, I was talking with Margaret Jones who works in a Trump hotel.Donald Trump has promised to raise all wages of maids at least TWENTY FIVE CENTS an hour! Do the math. $7.25 an hour, she soon will be making $7.50 an hour! Has Hillary Clinton raised wages for maids one single cent!

I know the liberal media spreads false stories that black folks do not like Donald Trump. Who would you rather have as president, a guy who creates thousands, no, millions of jobs, of some white gal who is crooked and a liar? Let me prove my point. The other day, I met Donald, and he did NOT ask me to carry his bag! He saw my suit, he saw my black face, and he made certain that I was the first person escorted out of the hotel!

Let me point out that Donald will get rid of those Hispanics. This means we black folks can now get high paying jobs picking fruit or being a nanny! God, I love that man, and, in conclusion, let me note that Donald has always welcomed Michael Jordan as guest in his hotels. Has Hillary Clinton done that  for any famous black athlete?”

I wonder why Don Rumsfeld is  silent about his party’s nominee?

Short sure is great when engaged in gymnastics.

I spend my nights thinking about which Cabinet position, Ivanka will fill.

If only Hillary would just say, “I was wrong,” the topic of emails would disappear.

These days Mitt Romney comes across a great statesman.

God, would I welcome one HONEST comment from Paul Ryan!

John Boehner sleeps peacefully these nights.

It apparently is OK for men to hug and kiss in the Olympics.
