NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Scott Walker boasts of “taking on the unions.” People are in unions. Figure out your meaning.

$7.25 cents an hour for Walker’s enemy.

Donald Trump’s great sorrow is not being made a general to lead men into battle.

Some honor life, some death.

I often wonder at the last thoughts of those blowing self up.

I was raised in a world in which the goal was making it easy for people to vote.

Republicans now have enough candidates to form two football teams, let the game proceed.

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia,Canberra Times: “Depression Sinks Bear”

Oh, come on, just bare up with this one.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Psychotic Killer”

Is there any other kind?

Norway, Norway Post: “Girls Need Superheroes”

Hopefully, Hillary is the next one.

Sweden, Local: “Star Called Idiot”

And, his name is Donald Trump!

Hungary,Budapest Times: “Usher Pharmacy Dies”

I wonder if there is a cure for it?

JebBushmonics

There are rumors that Jeb Bush is the more intelligent of the Bush family members. He has made a lot of money, he was a governor of the state of Florida, and according to him, any jobs obtained by anyone in that state during his tenure in office was a direct result of his executive actions. He is back in politics, after deciding to take a break from making lots of dough. After all, being the son of a president sort of helps one in getting to know the right people who ensure that you will wind up with lots of dough.

Anyway, Jeb has an economic plan that will lead to a 4% growth in job productivity. It is a simple idea. “People need to work longer hours, and through the productivity gain, make more income for their families.” So, I work more and get more, and so does the boss. I do understand that if I begin working 60 hours a week instead of forty, the boss makes more money. And, yes, productivity rises.

Sweden, Local: “No To Asylum”

Thank God that attitude was not around when my folks left Europe.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Science Leader: God Created Earth”

I assume he is going to run for president as a Republican.

Norway,Norway Post: “Financial Crime Pays Off”

Check with Wall Street folks if you doubt it.

Hungary,Budapest Times: “Pork Eaters Happy”

And,none of them is named, Goldberg!

UK, Guardian: “Star Called Idiot”

Donald knows he is a star, but that idiot piece will anger him.

Mouth Never Ceases Roaring!

There are few certainties in life, but if one lives in the United States of America one knows that sometime today, the red headed guy will utter some profound observation of life. OK,so there were some unconfirmed comments by certain members of the LIBERAL media that claim the Red Headed one said something nasty about Mexicans. Well, Donald once again trumped those making false accusations against the only man ready,willing, and able to defeat any terrorist group with one hand tied behind his back. “I have a great relationship with the Mexican people. I have many legal immigrants working for me. And,most of them come from Mexico! They love me. I love them. And, I’ll tell you something. If I get the nomination, I’ll win the Latino vote!!”

When Donald says he will do something,he will do it. That’s OK, he is willing to give Hillary the Armenian vote.

ISIS Gains Power

It has become the common refrain of those who want to blast the hell out of ISIS that all it takes is a few bombs or, maybe the Marines to send the black hooded group of terrorists back to where they came from. Reality: There are an estimated 35,000 ISIS militants in Iraq and they are confronted by over 150,000 Iraq soldiers, Iraq planes,and about 20,000 Kurdish troops. So, the question remains–how can a band that is outnumbered about six to one beat the hell out of these guys?

Reality check:

1. ISIS is performing tasks that win favor of those in Iraq cities.

2. Most reports from those who have talked with Iraqis who spent time under ISIS rule, usually report the following: ISIS cleans up a city, it ends corruption which is the common way of life living under the democratic rule of the Iraq government,and it certainly performs normal functions such as cleaning the streets and ending crime.

3. The best way to defeat ISIS is the creation of an effective, honest, and hard working Iraq army. That would be better than the US Marines!

Hillary In Land Of Jewish Money

Among the endearing myths about Jews is that they are people with enormous wealth. An examination of the top five wealthy people does not reveal a single Jew. But, there are wealthy Jews and there are wealthy Jews who consider themselves experts on the Middle East. They are quick to sound the battle cry of ANTI-SEMITISM whenever anyone dares to utter a complaint about Israel. Hillary Clinton ventured into the land known as Hollywood, where a few rich Jews do live. Naturally, she made certain one and all heard her love of Israel:

1. She opposes any effort such as boycotts against the West Bank. To do so, is proof the person hates Jews. I thought they opposed West Bank settlers, not the rest of Israel.

2. She promised to “fight against any further attempts to isolate Israel.” Actually it is quite easy to cease any isolation–just adhere to INTERNATIONAL LAW about the West Bank.

I am certain Hillary will come across as a good Christian, unlike the black dude from Africa.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Fail To Hire Vagina Expert”

Watch your hands!

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Mystery Man”

For conservatives it is the radical, John Roberts.

France, Connexion: “”Counterfeit Popsicles”

I’l suck on this one.

UK,Guardian: “Chaos Reigns”

Germany, Der Spiegel: “Same Sex Myths”

About the front or back?

Iran, The Potential Ally?

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif recently made statements about what his nation might do if sanctions were ended. “We are ready to strike a balanced deal, and open new horizons to address important common challenges. Our common threat today is the growing menace of violent extremism and outright barbarism. The menace we are facing, and I say, we, because no one is spared–is embodied by the hooded men who are ravaging civilization. To deal with this new challenge, new approaches are needed.”

In other words, Iran is ready to challenge ISIS. Iran is ready to strike a deal that might result in peace within the region. It has the armed forces and leadership to wipe out ISIS. All Saudi Arabia can do is simply bomb innocent people can create chaos. Give Iran an opportunity to end terrorism.
