More Troops On The Ground?

The ongoing mantra of Republican candidates is the need for “more boots on the ground.” If we just send a few thousand American soldiers the war against ISIS will be over within a few months. As I recall, that was the promise of George Bush, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld who assured the American people we would be welcomed by joyous crowds. Latest figures indicate that during the past three years at least 30,000 new recruits have joined ISIS. Send in our boys and we can double that numbers.

There is a city in Afghanistan named Kundiz. It was attacked by Taliban forces numbering less than a thousand soldiers. Inside the city were over FIVE THOUSAND AFGHAN SOLDIERS. The Taliban took the city and the soldiers are now on a mountain top protecting an air base. After all, planes can fly them quickly away from actual fighting.There are plenty of boots on the ground, but few contain the feet of soldiers who want to fight for their country.


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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Hazard To Your Health”

Companies producing drugs and high prices.

Canada, Toronto Star: “And God Wept”

He listened to a Republican debate.

USA, Denver Post: “Drug Dealers Invest in Real Estate”

Sweden, Local: “Sweden Best For Cancer Survival”

Do I have to speak Swedish to get cancer treatment?

UK, Guardian: “Cash Appointed Minister”

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.

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.

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?

UN Inspections For All

As of June 1st there were six nations that refused to allow UN inspectors into its nuclear facilities. They are: China,India,Pakistan, North Korea, Iran and—-? Now that Iran has agreed to such inspections, how about the last one on this list to accept such action. Oh, the last one is the state of Israel. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continually expresses concern as to whether inspections will prevent Iran from securing atomic bombs. As of this moment, Israel is adamantly opposed to allowing UN folk into its facilities. Israel Atomic Energy Commissioner, Ze’eve Snir warned that the world must be on guard against nations such as Iran who will cheat on inspections.He also warned that Iraq, Syria and Libya had attempted to develop atomic bombs.

Well, we know that Israel has at least 70 atomic bombs and can blast into dust any and all Muslim nations in the Middle East. Now, that Iran has agreed to inspection, how about demanding that Israel join the club for peace and security?

Still not clear who next walks the plank and drops into the ocean.

After handling fellow debaters Scott Walker is prepared to take on the homeless.

I have yet to hear Carly Fiorina, actually propose an idea on anything.

Say, is that Jeb Bush still in the race?

Yes, Ted, lets deport all immigrants and begin with your dad.

If one of the eleven drop out does that mean one of the four not in that debate moves up?

Perhaps it is time to select the Republican candidate on the basis of looks.

Socialist Pope Is Coming To Town!

As we Americans know only too well, the past six years under the regime of Barack Obama has taken this nation down the road of Socialism! Now, to make matters worse, the SOCIALIST POPE is arriving to spread his Socialist doctrines of taking from the wealthy and giving to the poor.We all know, you can check this in the Bible, God wants the poor to give unto the rich in order that the poor can enter the doors of heaven. Pope Francis is preaching the doctrine of redistribution of the wealth. Of course, this has been going on for decades with the poor and middle class giving unto the wealthy.

To make matters worse for Republican Catholics, this so-called prelate informed the world while in Cuba that relaxation of conflict between he US and Cuba “is an example of reconciliation for the entire world.”

Marco Rubio: No real Pope would step foot in Cuba until the Castro boys were dead!

John Boehner: As a Catholic I really wanted to listen to my Pope,but this guy is some sort of SOCIALIST!

Ted Cruz: I want Catholics to unite to hate, to hate.
