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


Not a single person seeking the presidency has explained their foreign policy-in detail!

A Trump/Palin ticket will sweep the idiot population of America.

For some reason, Sarah did not discuss her hunting prowess in Iowa. I wonder why?

At moments when Donald is listening to people like Sarah Palin he comes across as a little boy awaiting winning the great prize.

Barack Obama will not leave a legacy  of being a great educator for America.

There are moments when I feel great sorrow for Ben Carson, he looks so lost.

Is Carly Fiorina still alive?


Bad Days For ISIS

Republican candidates for President have created this great monster, this all powerful force known as ISIS which threatens the very foundation of America’s existence as a nation. How 30,000 en lacing armored vehicles, planes, ships, and heavy artillery can destroy the United States of America is among the great mysteries of modern times. Yes, ISIS agents can kill a few dozen people in shoot-outs that result in the death of ISIS fighters. This type of attack creates danger for people in a particular area, but will NOT result in the end of America.

An ISIS statement to its forces: “Because of  the exceptional  circumstances   that the Islamic State is  passing through, a decision was taken to cut the salaries of the mujahedeen in half. No one will be exempt from this decision.”

In other words, bombing attacks and ground operations are slowly impacting the fighting ability of ISIS. So much for the end of America!

Republicans seek to tell people how to control their bodies in the name of ending government control over the lives of people.

Why do so many modern politicians shout so loud?

I so miss the calm voice of Rand Paul at the Republican debate.

Martin Luther King was a man who believed in coalitions unlike so many modern black groups.

There are moments when I wish Bernie Sanders would just calm down and think about how a Democrat can win the presidency.

Gee whiz, a day without the shooting of a black guy by police!

For some strange reason on TV police shows the cop faces punishment if he shoots someone.

Merry Christmas Says Trump

As you may or not recall Donald Trump is fighting against Big Government. He wants to get Big Government out of the lives of people. At least that is what he claims in speech after speech. He was speaking yesterday at Liberty University, the college that pretends it is a source of intellectual discourse. So, Donald made clear that if he is President, then “every store will  have to say Merry Christmas.” I assume that stores owned by Jews will have to shout a Merry Christmas. I guess in fairness then every store would have to shout a loud, Happy Chanukah.

Once again the so-called, Conservatives are demanding that government tell people what they  can or cannot do. Somehow, this does not come across as a “conservative” idea. Ted and Donald and Jeb and Chris simply are radicals seeking to impose the Government into the lives of people — all in the name of liberty and freedom!


There are moments after seeing the latest figures which indicate that one percent of people in the world possess more than 50% of the rest of the world that I wonder what was life like back in the days  of Cro-Magnon folk. Did one family own more than the entire group? When an animal was killed, did one family eat nine-tenths of the animal while the rest were OK getting what was left? Did one family live in this really great stone house while the  others made do with some tents?

I am confused how in the course of human history we evolved into a system in which one percent sort of runs the show and consumes more than the other 99%.  So, it sort of is logical that this system began thousands of years ago before we civilized modern folk arrived on the scene. Or, are you telling me the Cro-magnons and Neanderthals were more emotionally evolved than modern humans?

Then again, did the best hunter sort of get control of the slain animals and decided who got what and who did not unless they did his bidding? Anyway, I’m sort of confused how we got into this weird modern situation in which one percent own so much. Got me!

Then again, what was the Wall Street equivalent for my  ancestors back then?

Inside Ben Carson’s Mind

This intrepid explorer decided to undergo an expedition into the mind of Ben Carson. Yes, he did attend the Republican Debate. Yes, he was on the stage. But, for some reason no one wanted to engage in a conversation with him. So, onto his brain.

“Fred, I am still a bit confused during this discussion. There was some comment about Green Cards. God, I don’t have one. Am I supposed to have this Green Card in order to remain in the United States?”

Don’t worry Ben, it is only for those born abroad.

“Fred, they talked about tariffs and trade with China. For some reason, Donald is upset at the Chinese. Gee, I go every week to a nice laundry run by some Chinese folks, is there something wrong with them of should we American born folks run the laundries?”

Don’t worry Ben, just handle your laundry at home with a washer and drier.

“Gee, Ted was real upset about people who live in New York City. I know some nice doctors from New York, should I stop seeing them?”

He just prefers doctors from Canada.

“Fred, I just felt all alone on the stage. No one wanted to insult me, no one wanted to argue with me. It was sort of lonely up there.”

Such is the way of debates. God Bless you Ben.

Why Ted Cruz Is Legal Immigrant

First, let us make one point clear, Ted Cruz is not an illegal immigrant, but he does fall into the category of an immigrant.  Mary Brigid McManamon, a legal scholar has done some research which apparently answers questions posed by Donald Trump about the guy from Canada. According to her research, the noted English legal scholar, 18th century  William Blackstone, who is frequently quoted by legal authorities, made clear that natural born citizens  are “such as born within the domains of the Crown of England while aliens are such as born out  of it.”

Sorry, Ted, that means you are NOT a natural born citizen. Heck, even Justice Scalia frequently quotes from Blackstone. Of course, we all would like to know why Ted waited until 2012 to renounce his  Canadian citizenship. Why not return to Canada and make your pitch to Christians in that country.

Oh Ted, Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, a state in the union.

Can Marco Rubio prove he was born in the USA rather than in Cuba?

Donald Trump was born in New York which for conservatives is a foreign nation.

Given the collection of weird Republicans seeking the presidency, perhaps it would help to solicit a foreign born candidate.

Oc course, there is always Vladimir Putin to be our president and restore world respect.

I miss the days of strong unions when people earned a good salary.

Gee, an entire day in Chicago and no one got shot by gangsters!

Then again, an entire day in Chicago and no one got murdered by the police!

I wonder how a President Donald Trump would handle armed guys taking over Federal property.

There are thousands of Americans of Latin American heritage in our armed forces and not a single one is named–Ted Cruz.

Republicans so want to fight someone –with someone else’s boys.

Is Jeb Bush still in the race for the Republican nomination?

It’s Tuesday and somewhere in Chicago some innocent child will die today.

We need El Chapo to be handed the job of cleaning up the Middle East of terrorists.

A meeting mad in hell–President Trump with President Putin!

Strange silence from Trump about those Mexican rapists.

I have a hunch that Rand Paul would  appreciate not having to spend three hours listening to his fellow Republican idiots.

One must admit that Mike Huckabee THINKS he has God on his side.

I am  surprised that Ben Carson did not visit Oregon to check on those refugees seeking to overthrow the US government.

I would love to be the fly on the wall listening to a conversation between Trump, Putin and Kim Jong-un.

I really wonder what Barack Obama is thinking these days.

Alas Jeb Bush, we knew yee well.
