Republicans On Foreign Policy

We have now been treated to several months of Republican candidates pontificating on how they would handle foreign policy. Let me sum up their “ideas.”

1. Bomb whatever is moving. Who the hell knows how or why bombing guys who are hiding will result in their deaths.

2. Restore the American military to what it once was. The US military  budget is nearly $60o billion. That is greater than the next six nations. Oh, we have 12 Carrier groups and the Chinese navy has ONE old aircraft carrier.

3. Ted insists that he even knows where the Middle East is, but the only one that he surpasses in knowledge is Donald Trump.

4. Let’s build a wall on our southern border. I assume that is an example of foreign policy.

5. Let’s NOT build a wall on our northern border. Gee, do you think terrorists might figure out it is OK to get in by the northern border?

6. Be tough with China. Whatever that means.

7. Fuck NATO. Now that is a great example of foreign policy.

Road To Nowhere

Another primary, another day of victories for Sanders and Cruz.There were long speeches by the two victors and many, many promises as to what they would do when elected. For Cruz, there is the promise of a new America in which to be poor, is to remain poor, a land without taxes, a land without rights for women, a land in which Ted single-handedly wipes out ISIS somehow with some bombs. For Bernie, it is a  land in which just making a speech ends the rule of the wealthy and restores power to the middle class.

Each promises that if elected there will be MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of new jobs. Each assures the American people these new jobs will be HIGH PAYING, but there is no explanation as to why employers who presently do not wish to pay high wages will suddenly raise them significantly. Bernie says he will create “twelve million new jobs by rebuilding the infrastructure.” He has never explained why rebuilding our infrastructure results in twelve million new high paying  jobs. Then again, when one runs for the presidency, make promises which can never be carried out.

Cruz and Sanders are completely the opposite in what they desire for America except that both are job creators. Just once it would be wonderful if someone explained how these jobs actually come into reality and why they are HIGH PAYING ones.

TRUMPTIONARY

Due to some special investigation we were able to obtain a copy of Donald Trump’s own dictionary.

Cruz-holy-than-thou schmuck

Obama-Africanitis disease

Kasich–poor man’s Jeb Bush

America–fool man’s paradise

ISIS –Muslim nut-cases

Jeb Bush–George’s half wit brother

Money–what I got and you don’t

Romney –Mor-man’s coward

New York–Money, money, money

Woman — good for a lay

Ben Carson–my next valet

Blacks– keep hand on your wallet

Hispanics–my ace card to victory

Rand Paul–smart aleck

President– my stage to perform

Hillary Clinton–No fucking way for me

Bernie Sanders–big talk Jew-boy

Democrats For Brain Washing!

There is no question that the election of Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders is the first step toward the end of Constitutional government in America and the establishment of a totalitarian state. Republican Congressman Don Young is a fearless fighter for the truth and a man who will not cease exposing the plots and plans of Democrats to end democracy. According to Don Young, if either Hillary or Bernie gets elected”everyone will be under some government mandate to do this, this and this–including went to get  up,what to eat, what you are thinking, what school you  are going to go to–and what you  are going to believe.”

I can provide evidence to support this statement. When Ronald Reagan was president,– a former DEMOCRAT–my children were assigned an elementary school by the government! They either had to eat food that was prepared in the school cafeteria if they wanted to buy food. NO choice was allowed. And, believe it or not but the GOVERNMENT forced me to drive at the speed they desired.

$15 An Hour Threatens Prosperity!

It is now clear there is growing sentiment among more and more Americans for a $15 an hour  wage. California has passed such a state minimum wage to take full effect by 2022, and New York is headed that way. Of course, dear old San Francisco has passed a $15 an hour wage to take full effect by 2018. Naturally, business complains the sky will fall and hunger will haunt Wall Street offices as its owners will now be compelled to live on less than $20,000,000  a year.

There is something ironic in business complaining about a $15 an hour wage. There is also something ironic for supporters shouting with glee that people –by 2020 can earn $2,400 a month. Reality is this is much better than $8 an hour but it certainly is not going move folks into the middle class. A decent two bedroom apartment in Manhattan or San Francisco will cost $1,500  a month for rent and utilities. And, by the way, that is for a low rent  apartment. Something like $20 an hour would be more likely to move people into the lower middle class.

Just Bring Your Gun To The Convention

NRA crazies have now challenged the Republican party to adhere to its belief that guns should be in every aspect of society. We need guns in schools, in colleges, in our work place, in our churches –so why not in our political conventions? A petition claiming 25,000 signatures as of this date is furious that at the Quicken Arena,  there is some crazy  rule that no guns are allowed in it! Can you believe that at the most important Republican meeting, no guns will be allowed in the arena! Whatever happened to my 2nd Amendment right?

Some crazies are furious that a “venue so unfriendly to second amendment rights was chosen for the Republican convention.” How about each and every person in the arena to pack a gun. One person fires, and soon thousands of guns blast away. In the end, Sarah Palin appears on the stage holding a  rifle aloft as sign that she won the shoot-out at the Quicken corral.

God Bless these defenders of our Constitutional rights. This is one time those Islamic terrorists will know how God fearing Christians can out do them in any terrorist attack!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

The next Republican conflict will center around which candidate can piss the furthest.

Give it to ISIS, they sure know how to control the six o’clock news.

Where would CNN be without terrorists?

At this moment, America needs the calm, quiet, wise words of Ben Carson. Of course, that assumes one can actually hear what he says.

In my childhood, a “rat”was a guy who shafted you, these days, it is a guy seeking to become President.

How about the next Republican debate featuring wives displaying their bodies in a contest over beauty?

Republicans have gone from walls to rats

How come the wife of John Kasich is never mentioned or displayed?

Hillary has to speak much softer and cease yelling.

Ah, these days I so long for the  presidential demeanor of Richard Nixon.

The final humiliation of Jeb Bush will arrive when he gives an endorsement for Donald Trump to become president.

Who would have thought six months ago that Bernie Sanders would be the most presidential behaving candidate?

Dick Cheney is still eligible to become President. I await his nomination at a deadlocked convention. Talk about someone who can not only look evil, but behave evil!!

War Of The Wives

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago there was a nation whose name was the United States of America which every four years conducted something termed an  election for a new President. Believe it or not, in those olden, olden days, two candidates argued about such mundane issues as how to create a vibrant economy or how to integrate newly arrived immigrants into the fabric of the nation or even–how to conduct an intelligent foreign policy. Alas, those were the olden days, and today, we have something called -the REPUBLICAN PARTY>

The current MAIN issue between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is the topic of their wives. Somehow, someone in the Cruz camp found a photo of Trump’s wife in a semi-nude pose. Naturally, this aroused the Donald man found an unflattering photo of the wife of Ted Cruz and the battle began. Ted now is rather upset: “Donald, you’re a sniveling coward and leave Heidi alone.”

Such are the issues confronting American society. After all, Donald and Ted have been yelling for months about the “unguarded border.” For some strange reason 140,000 more Hispanics LEFT AMERICA THAN ENTERED!

I assume the next issue will be the grandparents of the Trump or Cruz families.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I sure miss the mumblings and stumblings of Jeb Bush.

I sure miss not being able to hear a word that Ben Carson utters.

Each day Donald Trump reveals he is a poor man’s version of the boasting incompetent Benito Mussolini of Italy.

This year we have a new concept of who should be our president–the person who can punch out the most voters–physically, that is.

Ross Perot, where are you?

Hillary is simply not a natural born politician.

Bernie is getting better and better with his speech of hope.

 

 

Oh Them Gun-Toting Todlers

I understand that Donald Trump is worried about Islamic terrorists. I understand he goes to sleep with a gun underneath his pillow in case one of those Muslim bad people enters his house seeking his wealth or life.  Jamie Gilt, a nice attractive mom who so loves guns and shooting and such, left a loaded .45 caliber handgun on the back seat of her car. Her four year old took the gun and shot mom.

Actually, this event is not unique in America.  In 2015 more people were shot and killed by kids in America than were murdered by Islamic terrorists since 9/11. In other words, an American is safer being in the company of a Muslim than being with his young child. Such is life in modern America!
