Time For A Black President?

During the past seven years there has been a non-stop complaint that Barack Obama was: born in Africa, is not really a true American, and he hates America. Well, along comes Rupert Murdoch with the final dagger into the heart of Obama:

Tweet: “Ben and Candy Carson are terrific. What about a real black President who can address the racial divide?”

Finally, we now know that Barack was really a WHITE MAN disguised as a black man! I always suspected that Barack was not who he claimed to be. Remember when he was accused of hanging around with terrorist black ministers? Now, we know that he NEVER loved any white ministers. Now, we know that he was never really black, more like tan.

One problem: Fox News does not like black Presidents. So, can we transform Ben Carson-and Candy Carson–into sort of white on Monday and black the rest of the week folks?

And, the good news is that Ben Carson is really a man of all seasons. He is a doctor, and then he is a sheriff. It would be so great to have a President who confronted a man with a gun in Popeye’s and said: “No, you don’t want me, I think you want the guy behind the counter!” We need leaders like this!

So, Who Should Be Speaker?

The Republican party is having sort of a problem finding someone to serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives. In the spirit of public service we offer some names that might be of interest to these people. Nothing in the Constitution says the Speaker must be a member of Congress.

1. How about bringing back Dick Cheney? He hates better than any Republican in the House.

2. There is nothing unconstitutional about having Ted Cruz hop over to the House for a few hours each day.

3. Carly Fiorina has extensive executive experience, after all she got fired, which certainly qualifies her to head up the mad men of the Republican party.

4. A long shot would be Jon Stewart. He is currently unemployed, he can get people laughing. And, if there is one thing Republicans need is a good laugh.

5. Personally, I like Ben Carson, his level of intelligence certainly qualifies him to join the merry band of ignorant men-and women.

6. Of course, there is always Vladimir Putin, he sure could get some organization and obedience among the wild men of Congress.

7. There are numerous two-bit dictators around Africa to fill the void and they certainly would add some color to the House.

8. Then again, there is always Donald, heck, he could handle the job on a consulting position.

Slogan Diplomacy

The emergence of Republicans to power in Washington D.C. has been accompanied by the resort to a slogan in order to resolve any and all problems in the world. Just shout a one liner and–poof, away goes the problem.

“Bomb Iran.” At no time did Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Richard Nixon, or Ronald Reagan urge bombing our enemies. They relied upon diplomacy.

“Shoot them down.” Bib Netanyahu’s answer to the Palestinian issue is to resort to violence. The last time there was an Intifada, thousands of Palestinians died, along with over a thousand Jewish Israelis.

“Give Everyone A Gun.” People with guns kill people. Australia, after a mass shooting, ended the use of automatic weapons. Gun violence went down.

“Cut taxes.” During the 1950s the top tax rate was –91%! It was a boom time for jobs and wages.

“Arm Everyone.” How about kindergarten kids?

I wonder if someone out of the blue will cast their name into the Republican race–Dick Cheney?

So, what ever happened to Rand Paul– a lot of silence?

So, what does Scott Walker now do–take on Planned Parenthood or the AA group?

I would so love to hear what a wealthy guy says to a Republican seeking his money.

I know that guns in hands of good guys halt shootings, but how does one define a “good guy?”

The Oregon shooter had a wonderful mom, she even loved guns more than he did.

So, Who Bomber Kunduz?

There is one thing very clear–American planes bombed a hospital in the city of Kunduz in Afghanistan. According to General John Campbell:

1. US forces were being attacked by the Taliban and called in an air strike. The pilot of AC-30 gunship had difficulty in locating the target.

2. Afghan forces were under attack by the Taliban and called in the air strike.

3. Well,that was not exactly it. According to General Campbell: “Afghan forces had not directly communicated with US pilots in the AC-130 gunship.

Anyway there are now dead doctors, dead nurses, and several dead patients.

In other words, no one is to blame except the Taliban which started the fight.

Afghan Mess As Always

The Afghan story continues to reveal that blunders are just a normal event for the US military. American bombers bombed the city of Kunduz because Afghan soldiers were scared shit to go into battle, as always. They informed American military that the bad guys were in front of them and they needed a few bombs. According to US sources: “On 3 October we have now learned that Afghan forces advised they were taking fire and asked that for air support. An air strike was called in to eliminate the Taliban threat.” So,US planes bombed and they killed a dozen people in a hospital including several doctors and staff members.”‘

According to the US military it is not their fault for the killing of Doctors without borders because “the Taliban have purposely chosen to fight from within a heavily urbanized site.” It is the fault of the bad guys that we killed innocent doctors and nurses.

When will this horror end??

Bombs Away, Means Death Arrives

One of the enduring myths spouted by our President and the Republican party is that bombs dropped from the sky will fall exactly where they are supposed to fall. We possess modern technology that results in accurate destruction of targets. We have accepted this myth since World War II, we were convinced during the Vietnam war that our bombers only hit military targets. The dream lives on and on in Afghanistan which has witnessed the death of thousands due to our drones and planes.

American planes “hit targets” in Kunduz in Afghanistan. They aimed their bombs at the bad guys. After our planes departed, there were nineteen dead at a hospital including twelve members of the medical staff. “The bombs hit,and then we heard the second plane circle around and then there was a pause, and then bombs hit.” The dead included members of Doctors Without Borders.

I am certain US military officials will insist:

There were insurgents hiding in the hospital.

P.S.Has anyone considered sending Donald Trump and Ted Cruz to clean up the mess in Afghanistan?

Russia’s Afghanistan??

During the 1980s, when Vladimir Putin was an obscure operative for the Russian secret police, the KGB, a Russian Communist leader decided to come to the aid of some Afghan Communists and sent Russian troops into the land. About ten years later, and thousands of dead Russian soldiers later, the Russians departed that land of sorrow. Now, there is another Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, who has decided to send in the troops, this time, not to Afghanistan, but to Syria. Putin insists his soldiers will mainly be members of the air force or navy,no boots on the ground.

So, welcome, Vladimir to the mess in Syria. Send in your troops, sent in your air force, send in your navy. There will come a day when some Russian soldiers will be killed on the streets of Damascus,and Vladimir will demand revenge.Again Russian troops will die.

Barack, just remember, there is NO western solution to the mess in Syria, remain out and let them fight it out. In the end, Muslims must solve their own problems.

Republicans On Guns

We tend to forget there is one party that is completely united in the task of preserving our beloved Constitution and our way of life –or, if you prefer, our way of death. Republicans are ready to stand up for freedom,democracy,and the right to shoot.Just listen to these voices of calmness in the midst of anti-gun hysteria:

Bill O’Reilly: These shooting are simply “the cost of our freedom that allows insecure people to kill so many people.”

Jeb Bush: “Stuff just happens. There is always a crisis and the impulse is always to do something. But,it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.”

Donald Trump:”Because you have sick people. They happen to be intelligent.And you know,they can be as sick as hell and they’re geniuses in a certain way. They are going to be able to break the system.”

I must confess that Donald Trump has way of explaining issues so that one is left wondering how in hell did I wind up on the other side from Donald!

Some Rosebury Folks Happy

Every time there is a shooting and some folks get killed, we can thank God some people retain a sense of calm and decorum in the midst of hysteria by those who seek to stamp on the US Constitution. The owner of the Rosebury Gun Shop shouted the good news that always accompanies shootings and killings. “I’ve just ordered some more ARs(assault rifles). There’s always a rush on them after a big shooting. We can’t keep the stuff on the shelves.” There is now a cardboard cutout of President Obama with a sign saying: “Gun Salesman Of The Year.”

I do not believe those opposing the right to own a gun and kill people grasp the economic importance of shootings. If you would step back from anger and examine the economic importance of a few gun deaths, you might change your mind. Consider such shootings as the recent one in Oregon as simply a job-creating exercise to restore economic health to this nation.

I guess those liberals opposing guns want to keep gun deaths in the hands of those Mexicans and deprive native born Americans from helping this nation to prosper!
