God Bless Donald Trump

Once again while the Obama administration was trying to figure out how to handle Iran, our beloved leader and sage, Donald Trump beat him to the draw. Yes, Iran has agreed to exchange people held in prison, and guess who was the man who made this happen? No, it was not John Kerry. No, it was not Barack Obama, Yes, it was Donald Trump!

“I have been going wild for years about the prisoners(in Iran). I call them ‘hostages’. So, I have been hitting them hard.  I might have had something  to do with it(exchange of the  prisoners) if you want to know the truth.” Somewhere in Iran some religious leaders at this moment are on their knees praying that Donald Trump will not come after them. Thank God they did his bidding and released the four prisoners.

I trust Ted Cruz is  paying attention how a REAL LEADER functions in dealing with them Muslim terrorists!

0NE PERCENT OWN IT ALL!

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?

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

Jeb Bush comes across as a little boy lost in memories of better times in his life.

Ted Cruz just cannot lose that Harvard arrogance.

Ben Carson should examine any offer from a hospital to go back to cutting open bodies and leave healthy bodies alone.

Republican debates miss the calm voice of Rand Paul.

Donald Trump continues insisting that a President will tell business where to conduct their business.

John Kasich  comes across as a man who repeats his resume time after time.

Is Carly Firorina still alive?

Marco Goes For Jugular

Marco has decided to stay away from Donald since he fears getting the big bully angry at him could result in some heated exchanges that make him out to be the next little boy sent to eat at the kid’s table. So, he went after Chris Christie and Ted Cruz. Just some encounters with the junior bully and the little chubby boy who used to be left out of playing on the playground.

Marco and Chris.  He charged that Chris Christie in his earlier life was a fervent liberal who supported all those terrible things that no decent person in Iowa would ever accept. He charged Chris with being a supporter of abortion rights, gun control, and being a close friend and ally of Barack Obama. Naturally, Chris wanted one and all to understand that his heart has always been in Iowa and he was thinner then so his mind was thinner also when it came to issues that get one popular in the Republican party.

Marco charged that Ted Cruz was for more immigrants arriving carrying Green Cards, he supported the Constitution which says anyone born in America was a citizen,and he opposed raising the military budget. Ted wants everyone to know he opposes any kind of immigrant– except his dad, that is– and he  loves the US military and will vote to give them more and more guns and other weapons. Ted also pointed out that Marco worked with the evil Democrats on immigration reform. Marco can not recall any such discussions.

I trust this clears up what each man believes.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Strange times create strange political leaders.

Has anyone checked out exactly where Donald Trump was really born?

Oh well, at least no one wonders where Jeb Bush was born, then again, no one cares.

Paul Ryan during the State of the Union message never cracked a smile, nor used his hands to applaud.

I still await Dick Cheney to enter the presidential race, he never did run for President.

I wonder when the expression, “boots-on-the-ground” first appeared and by whom?

I wonder if we still had the Draft would political leaders change their tune about being tough guys ready to fight?

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!

Saudi Arabia And Iran Conflict

Iran is a Shiite Muslim nation of over eighty million people which has an army of at least one million, Saudi Arabia is a Sunni Muslim nation of about twenty-nine million people and an army of about  200,000. Iran’s armed force has fought in major wars against Iraq, while Saudi Arabia’s army has never fought against any group other than some guerrilla forces. So, what does Saudi Arabia do– murder forty seven men by hanging or cutting off heads, including an imam whose worst crime was to peacefully urge changes in the policies of the Saudi Arabian government.

The end result of riots in Tehran against the Saudi legation or bombing in Yemen by the Saudi air force which has never once in its existence fought against planes from another nation, bomb away at Shiite fighters in Yemen. Each side is now engaged in a  war of words. Each claims to be the leader of Muslim nations in the Middle East. In the end, neither wants to have a war so they each will assist in the deaths of innocent non-Iranian, and non-Saudi Muslims in the Middle east.

The Great war of Words has begun!

Silence Of The Imams

The United States of America has played an important role in creating the mess which now dominates the Middle East. Syria is simply one example of misguided efforts by the Bush administration and Republicans seeking the presidency. However, the reality is that civil war rages in Syria and it is based upon conflict between Muslim groups. At points it is impossible to understand who is killing who in what constitutes the “nation” of Syria.

But, there is a strange silence about daily deaths in Syria. Finally, the Syrian government allowed trucks loaded with supplies to enter the besieged town of  Madaya. Reports indicate dozens have died of malnutrition and thousands are rapidly reaching that stage. But, the amazing aspect of this situation is the silence emanating from Muslim clerics. Where are the Martin Luther Kings marching to support Muslims dying? Where are demands from Muslim leaders for an end to murdering innocent Muslims? T

The silence falls on deaf ears!

Putin Makes A Point

During the administration of George H.W. Bush and George Bush the goal of US European foreign policy was to push NATO eastward to ensure that anti-Russian nations were on the  Russian border.  As Putin put it: “twenty-five years ago,the Berlin wall fell, but invisible walls moved to eastern Europe. NATO and the United States wanted to complete victory over the Soviet Union. This had led to mutual misunderstandings and assignments of guilt. We’e done everything wrong.

The key word is “we’ve’ which indicates that Putin is finally admitting a role in creating tensions in eastern Europe. At one of the Republican debates Carly Fiorina boasted that if she were president she would place missiles on the border of Russia. Other Republicans wanted to shoot down Russian planes in Syria. Russia had a point, threatening to destroy Russia carries consequences. And, Trump and the boys and girls are dangerous to the cause of peace in eastern Europe.
 

Trump Words Of Wisdom

There is one category in which Donald Trump is master of  words, descriptions of other people. Here are some samples of his observations on the human condition:

John McCain– “dummy.”

Martial arts champion Ronda Rhousy — “not  a nice person.”

Vladimir Putin — ” a strong leader.”

Kim Jong-un:  “You’ve go to give him credit, how many young guys take over those tough generals?”

Ted Cruz — foreign born guy.

Rand Paul — guy with funny hair.

Donald Trump —  a man with Great Plans!
