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

Australia, Canberra Times: “I Don’t Think I Lied”

Donald, do you ever think you told the truth is the question?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Work Exercise For The Aged”

Heck, picking up groceries for the aged is enough work!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Russia Bans US Wines”

I’ll drink to that one.

France,Connexion: “Gunman Gets 3318 Year Sentence”

Does he get time off for good behavior?

UK,Guardian: “Back Same Sex Marriage”

Not in the office of Kim Davis!

I fear that Dick Cheney will always be with us.

For some reason Don Rumsfeld dwells in the world of silence.

Hard to imagine a President Carly Fiorina.

I suspect if a drunk wandered onto the next debate program,no one would know the difference.

Israel is always “surrounded” with its 80 atomic bombs.

I wonder if the children of Sarah Palin will enter politics?

An unusual silent week for the Donald man.

Shame of America, Shame Of Israel!

They cross deserts, They make their way through wrecked cities, they dodge bullets, mortars and bombs dropped by airplanes, but they continue their journey toward hope and safety. They are the refugees of Syria, not just thousands, but hundreds of thousands who have been abandoned by their criminal government, their neighbors, and their clerics. They are Muslim, they are Christian, but they continue the journey toward a plan in which their children can have food, education, and safety from bombs and terrorists who only know they believe in some sort of God who sanctions murder of the helpless.

They somehow reach the shores of Europe, they find ways to make it through roadblocks in order to see some form of life in Austria or Germany. The English Guardian asked all US candidates how they stood on the question of aiding refugees. Only Martin O’Malley responded with a belief the US should allow some to enter its shores. Israel was asked and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, sorry, there is no open door. Germany has offered to allow 800,000 to enter. Yes,Germany which decades ago murdered over thirty million people. But, the USA, the nation of immigrants has no room in its house.

Donald, your Irish ancestors arrived, about one million when they faced starvation in their native land. Thank God, America opened its doors or today there would not be a Donald Trump!

Donald Takes A Pledge

Well,Donald has decided to take a pledge and assure Republicans that he will support the candidate who is nominated a the Republican convention. Of course, under his breath he did make note that candidate had to have the name of Donald Trump. How about a few more Trump pledges?g

1. A pledge that prior to November, 2016 he will make known THE PLAN to wipe out ISIS.

2. A pledge to only use the word, “bimbo” when referring to Democrats.

3. A pledge that he will personally use a shovel to begin building the Great Wall Of Rio Grande.

4. A pledge that he will allow Jeb to complete a sentence.

5. A pledge that he will not run for the job of running ISIS.

6. A pledge that he will cease insulting Scott Walker, the poor kid has such a sad face when Donald is around.

I pledge that my last word as I lay dying will not longer be, “Benghazi” but “Donald.

Republicans insist all must obey the law unless they are Christians.

It is clear to Republicans that Obama is a man who allows his beliefs to supersede the law.

If ignorance was a virtue, Donald Trump would be a saint in Heaven.

I await Donald in Heaven giving orders to the Big Guy up there.

Carly Fiorina ran Hewlitt Packard into the ground and now wants to bring her expertise to America.

How about a ticket of: Carson and Florina??

At least Republicans have the most doctors running for president-Rand Paul and Ben Carson.


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

France, Connexion: “Fake Health Refunds”

At least this is one healthy way to make money.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Must See Attraction”

Trump and Putin together at a press conference.

USA, aol: “Unauthorized Drone Flights”

In the Middle East???

UK,Guardian: “Rich People Don’t Become Soldiers”

So, what’s new about this story?

Sweden, Local: “We Will Run This Country”

The Republican mantra of destruction.

The Immigration Issue

Unfortunately, in the real world we can not return to decisions made, and alter what has happened in history. We are stuck with the reality of the past as it impinges on the present. There is no doubt other policies could have been followed when the madness of the Syrian conflict initially began. The decision to invade Iraq initiated a vast gathering together of Muslim fanatics, but that was then, and today is now. It is now estimated that Germany, alone, will witness the arrival of about 800,000 immigrants this year. The seas around Europe now hold the bodies of thousands of men, women, and children, the unlucky ones who never got across the sea. So, what now?

1. Just about every European nation is witnessing the graying of their nation.

2. Just about every European nation needs young workers.

3. Immigrants are NOT a burden, they represent an opportunity for Europe to revitalize itself with youthful workers

4. Europe must initiate a vast worker training program and integrate these young people within their societies.

5. By the way, from 1880-1924, the United States absorbed 20,000,000 immigrants and thus grew wealthier.

The Great Ditch

It has come to my attention that Donald Trump and the Republican party seek to protect our borders agains the hordes of people fleeing from Syria or Iraq or Mexico. Therefore I am ready to propose a solution to this problem.

1. We do not need a wall. We need a giant ditch that will run from the Pacific Ocean coast to New Orleans.

2. The ditch will be filled with oil and water to prevent these immigrants from drinking OUR WATER!

3.Inside the ditch there will be crocodiles and piranha fish to ensure any seeking asylum in America will have to surrender a foot or arm.

4. NRA sharpshooters will be placed along the entire ditch with orders to shoot and kill.

5. Gang members will be allowed to get rid of their anger by blasting away at anyone in the ditch.

I await confirmation from Donald about his support.

Black Lives Matter, They Sure Do

There is a group which goes by the name of ‘Black Lives Matter” which is still another example in modern America of the anti-political situation in our society. According to one of its spokespersons, ” The Democratic Party,like the Republican party and all political parties have historically attempted to contain black efforts to liberate themselves. True change requires real struggle, that struggle will be in the streets and led by the people, not by a political party.”

Let me get this straight:

1. It will be led by “the people.” Who or what is “the people?” Of course, it is those who are leading this group. As I recall, they were never elected or designated as leaders by any or all of The People.

2. So,there is a demonstration and ‘the people’ protest. Then, what happens?

3. Black Lives Matter is simply a group of people interested in pretending they represent someone.

All SUCCESSFUL changes in American society come from a political process. Just study the life of leaders such as Martin Luther King or A.Philip Randolph or Thurgood Marshall, etc..And, let me include Lyndon Johnson and Abraham Lincoln.

Syria Forever?

Each day I gaze at pictures in the newspaper or online which depict frightened people fleeing from Syria. They have left by the millions, desperately seeking a place of safety and comfort, at least for the moment. They are homeless, they are alone, they are abandoned by their country’s leaders and the world. On their face is the same look one saw during the 1930s when Jews were fleeing Nazi Germany in hope that someone would offer some form of safety. No nation stepped forward. Today, Sweden has been doing the job of offering a home, but there are limits to that small country. So, what can be done?

1. The UN should organize a program of relocation that spreads refugees around the world. Sorry, that is the only alternative.

2. Somehow,some way,Russia and Iran must persuade President Assad to step aside.

3. Just imagine the reaction of Donald Trump if a few thousand Syrian refugees showed up on our shores!
