Score One For USA!

As you recall  or don’t recall, a fundamental  belief of the Bush administration and the Obama administration and the yet to arrive Trump administration is the key to success in destroying evil Muslim terrorists is to kill –or should we say–murder the leaders of these evil people. Get rid of them and then what–according to Bush, Obama, Clinton and Trump:

1. All the bad Muslim terrorists will be so very, very upset, they will  pack up their explosives and head for home or someplace where they will not go boom, boom any more.

So, the CIA now claims they killed–murdered that is– the Taliban leader, Mullah Athfar Mansoor and that means there is no Taliban left in Afghanistan.

Oh, as you recall how happy President Obama when they got Osama bin Laden since he could now announce the end of the Taliban.

Mr. President,your announcement appears to have NO effect on the Taliban in Afghanistan!

Just Another Day In Iraq

The good news from Iraq these days is that one knows the day before what will be the news from Iraq tomorrow. A majority of people in Iraq are Shiites and a minority are Sunni Muslims. Under Saddam Hussein, the Sunnis ran Iraq. Now, that he is gone, Shiites are making up for lost time with discrimination against Sunnis, including arresting Sunni political leaders. So, one can daily expect the following:

Yesterday in Baghdad, 67 dead and 87 wounded in a Shiite marketplace. Later in the day, a suicide bomber wearing a vest blew himself up and murdered 17 Shiites and wounded a few dozen. We can expect tomorrow that suicide bomber will blow himself up in a Sunni marketplace area.

And, so on, and so on, and so on. Will this madness ever end?

The Toilet Wars Rage

There are moments when one wonders how the hell one wound up in the United States of America during what appears to go for an election. OK, there are some minor problems such as income inequality or student debt or lack of good paying  jobs, not merely for newly graduated college students but for anyone seeking to make a decent life. If one examine the recently concluded Republican primary it is quite clear those seeking the Republican nomination had different ideas as to what is wrong in America.

1. Taxes on the rich are too high and that is why there are not enough well paying jobs.

2. Students made the debt, and since they are not a big business, they have to pay the debt they incurred.

BUT, the recurring issue that, at one point or another, winds up as THE important issue of modern America is–who can piss and shit in a public bathroom? There apparently is some special quality to shit produced by transgender folks and this means, stay out of bathrooms.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, continues to insist that North Carolina is the NINTH LARGEST STATE and this means something about where transgender folks should piss and shit. As anyone knows, God only shits in a bathroom where people shit based on the gender listed on their birth  certificate.

All I can say to Governor McCrory is–PISS ON YOU!

Who Wants To Go To Heaven?

Once upon  a time, a few months ago, there was a teacher named Reince Priebus who had a class of 16 boys and one girl. One day, he told the students about the wonders of this wonderful place high up in the sky which is called, Republican Heaven. He asked how many of them wanted to go to  Heaven. A red haired boy named Donald shot his hand into the air and said: “Me, only Me, because I am the most intelligent in this class, and I know the most and when I get to heaven I’m going to build the largest, the biggest wall so that no one will ever again get in without an OK from me.”

Benny Carson said:”that’s OK with me as long as you buy the story of my life.”

Carly said: “Nobody, and I mean no guy is getting there before me. I’m the smartest in this whole  class of dumb bells.”

Little Marco said: “If I get to heaven will it mean that I will never again sweat so much?”

Jeb said: “Well, Donald, my big brother already got there and he said that I’m going to be the next one to get into Heaven, so there!”

Randy Paul said: “Heaven, schmeaven, who cares. Frankly, I really don’t want to go with Donald.”

Johnny Kasich said: “Can I get lots of food to eat in Heaven?”

Mikey Huckabee said: “I promise to pray for  all in this class to get to heaven. God almighty already said I’m going.”

Teddie said: “There is no way I’m going to heaven if Donald goes!”

What the rest said, no one cares about.

So, Whose To Blame?

I believe there is a group in the Republican party who claim to be “moderates.” The entire Bush family, dear old Mitt Romney, and guys like Lindsay Graham or Don Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney are presently casting themselves as leaders of the “moderate” wing of the Republican party. They finally, yes, finally, are upset at  Republican who makes outrageous comments concerning Obama or Hispanics or Muslims or even Wall Street Bankers, and so this group is gathering together in order to “save” the Republican party.

Of course, the real question is–save the Republican party from whom? Donald Trump  has merely been shouting the same words spoken in a  softer tone by every Republican over the past 12 years. Republicans have turned down every offer to create a health care system, and when Obama created one  based on REPUBLICAN ideas, they shouted to heaven–SOCIALISM! Republicans denounced “Big Government” even while expanding Big Government into Bigger Government. They have shouted that only cutting taxes could save America from the evil of taxing those with wealth who are the job CREATORS. Donald Trump has turned their  own words around and gained millions of supporters. Donald ?Trump is the creation of “MODERATE” Republicans!

If one creates a Frankenstein,  beware when he strides around.

Obama On Republicans

Once a year media correspondents get together and ask the current president to utter some biting sarcastic comments. Barack Obama appeared for the last time.

“They say that Donald lacks the foreign policy experience for a president, but in fairness, he  has spent years meeting  with leaders from  around the world. Miss Sweden. Miss Argentina. Miss Azerbaijan. And there’s one area where Donald’s experience could be invaluable and that’s closing Guantanamo, because Donald knows a thing or two about running waterfront properties into the ground.”

As for Ted Cruz who recently pointed out that a basketball hoop is really known as basketball ring. Obama on Ted: “He knows that baseball players use baseball sticks and football players use hats. And, they say I’m the foreign one!”

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think Republicans need Rudy Giuliani to save America just as he single-handedly did on 9/11.

Cruz and Fiorina– a match made in heaven!

In all honesty, Bernie left Brooklyn but Brooklyn never left Bernie.

Donald prefers being Donald to presidential.

A miracle that will never occur is a day of peace in Syria.

Republicans never explain what “Making America Great Again” means,great in which respect?

It becomes increasingly clear the only purpose of Republican primaries is to  help some folks sell their books.

At age 85, I somehow missed the meaning or purpose of the Kardashian age.

These days I have come to conclude that Hell is being forced to sit before a TV set listening to the Republican debates for ETERNITY!

My great regret this year is that Elizabeth Warren did not seek the presidency.

Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has identified the greatest threat confronting America– the Government wants to regulate our ceiling fans!

First they came for our health care, then they came for our light bulbs, then they came for our ceiling fans, and next, no doubt, is regulation of our toilet seats!!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Republicans have a romance with stupidity.

Carly Fiorina was fired as head of Hewlett Packard, who else would Ted seek to be his running mate?

I await with hope that Republicans will finally turn to Sarah Palin. After all, she sure can shoot straight.

Ah, for a President of the USA who regards women as bimbos!

Of course, in fairness to Donald, a bimbo IS seeking the Democratic nomination.

There are moments when I believe we Americans have a rendevous with disaster.

I wonder what Ben Carson is doing these days–cutting up bodies?

Republican slogan: Ignorance in the defense of freedom is a virtue.

There must be ONE intelligent mind in the Republican party.

I have no idea why this Beyonce is important or who the hell she is.

We need to give every baby a copy of the US Constitution at birth.

Oh, for a day of  silence in Syria.

Only in America do twenty million people get to decide what 200 million want.

I wonder what Dick Cheney is doing these days–then again, is he still alive?

How About A Palestine?

It has now become part of the Republican mantra that anyone seeking the presidency must get on his knees, lick the boots of Sheldon Adelson and promise never,k ever to mention the word, Palestine. Israel Prime Minister inhabits his own special area of the Twilight zone where there is a nation called, Israel, which covers the entire planet and all who are Jews own every part of the planet. For Bibi Netanyahu under no condition can anyone who claims to be a friend of Israel support the idea of an independent Palestine.

Recent polls in Palestine reveal that over 67% of young people believe that stabbing an Israel Jew is in accordance with the Koran. Who are these young people? They have virtually no prospect for  decent job. They must go through one check point after another to get anywhere. They can be arrested for whatever the Israel police claims is evidence of “terrorism.” Yes, many want to commit some form of violence. That is the norm for people without hope. If Israel wants to end stabbing the first step is to agree on the establishment of an independent state of Palestine.

The details of how to reach such an agreement will take time. But, step one must be an official statement from the Israel government that it accepts this concept.
