Paul Ryan–For Anyone To Be President

As you recall, Paul Ryan a few months ago urged Republicans to vote for Donald Trump, and now he wants Republicans to vote for the next person who will become president. So, we asked Paul to explain where  he stands right now.

Fred, thanks for this opportunity to be frank with the American people on where the Congressman who leads our party in the House of Representatives stands on this election. I do want someone to become president, I can say that without any fear of taking this stand. I want someone who will cut taxes on the wealthy and get this economy moving again. I want someone who understands that when the wealthy are happy, the Middle Class is prosperous.

So, who will I support for president? Mr.Trump is the nominee for the Republican party for the presidency. OK,sometimes, well, to be honest, just about all the time, he opens his big mouth to insult a woman,a disabled person or Hispanics. Now, I love women, but remember that I am married so I keep my love away  from female bodies, but any how, there is always something today or some female today, that Donald sort of angers with his touches,let alone with his words.

OK, Donald has sort of insulted me, but there is absolutely NO evidence that he ever groped my wife or reached for her pussy. None at all. On the question of my wife and her body, I have to admit that Donald Trump has been a gentleman. So, give Donald an ‘A’grade when it comes to groping females in my family. On this point,I do support Donald Trump when it comes to members of the Ryan family. He has been a gentleman at ALL times. So,on this point,I am 100% on the side of Donald Trump!

For Donald Trump–Rudy Speaks

We decided in the spirit of fairness to allow supporters of Donald Trump to present their argument why he should be the next president.

Rudy Giuliani: As you know I was the one who saved the people of New York City on 9/11.  It was my bravery walking through Harlem with only a hundred cops  that showed Islamic terrorists they had better not fool around with me, nor the president of  the United States– frankly, for the moment, that name sort of escapes my memory.

So, why am I for Donald Trump to be president? Good question. Frankly, to be honest, Donald Trump if elected would enable me to meet some cute chicks, and since I have now been married this third time,  who knows, maybe I can try it once again. At least, then being married four times, I will surpass the red headed guy. Oh, why vote for Donald Trump? Great question. Put it this way, at least he  is not Hillary Clinton, and, for sure, he sure is not me!!

Angry Americans For Trump

These days there are many angry people in America, most probably, the angriest is Rudy Giuliani. But, central to the anger of Trump supporters is  the belief that America is no longer a Great Nation, and foreign type people are swarming into our beloved land and transforming it into a den of iniquity and evil. Many recall the “good old days” when white males ran the land, and blacks, Hispanics and women knew their place. No blacks were marching in the streets, because if they did, a group of white men dressed in white robes would explain who ran the show, and who was expected to get into the gutter when a white person walked down the street.

They are angry at rise of minority groups to political power. Many also worked in plants producing automobiles or making shirts and pants, or dwelled in our coal mines. Ironically, these same people supported laws that made organizing workers into unions difficult, and the result was that the boss paid low wages and fired at will. They voted for Republican politicians who prevented laws that provided low cost colleges, decent health care, retraining programs  that would enable the displaced coal miner to get a technology job. They voted for Republicans who refused to pass legislation that would create high wage jobs rebuilding our infrastructure.

So, what happened? A high percent of Silicon Valley tech jobs are now filled by people from India,China or Pakistan. The angry people should gaze into a mirror if they want to know how our job situation became as it now is.


We offer observations on the human condition from a 26 year old mind trapped in an 86 year old body.


Chelsea Manning was sent to solitary confinement for attempting suicide. HUH?

The only institution that is not crooked in our society, according to Trump, is his campaign.

I have never encountered such ignorance as that displayed by Trump supporters.

I wish Pope Francis lived another twenty years so he would have time to change the power structure of the Vatican.

Not a day goes by without some hateful outburst from Donald Trump –and –his supporters.

I so enjoy Sunday football, at least I used to, now politics rather than touchdowns are the topic of discussion.

I increasingly believe that God is on an extended vacation from Earth.

Marco Rubio Has A Problem

As  you recall or do not recall during the year long quest for the Republican nomination for  president, Senator Marco Rubio pledged that he would not seek re-election to that office. Well, Marco, did not get the golden ring of being a candidate for president so he decided to once again become a US Senator. He is now being challenged by Democrat Patrick Murphy. In a recent speech, Murphy mocked Marco for his famous statement given in response to a question as to whether or not he believed there was climate change: “I’m not a scientist.”

Murphy went  on the attack. “Floridians don’t need to be told about the effects of climate change,with the future of the environment on the line, who are Republicans trying to elect Donald Trump and Marco Rubio? When Donald goes low, Marco Rubio is right there with him.”

Donald On Chaos In Syria

Once again in the Presidential Debate Donald Trump offered his “expert” advice as to how to deal with the Syrian crisis. We once again heard the solution was to bomb, to bomb, to wipe out, to obliterate, to destroy, and to end the reign of ISIS. Donald discussed the “stupidity”of military leaders to announce a campaign to drive ISIS out  of the Iraq city of Mosul. Donald wants to know why we are “telling” ISIS that an attack will be launched. So, let me get this straight General Trump will surprise ISIS with a sneak attack, kill all their soldiers, and life will be beautiful.

Donald, there are a few problems:

1. There are 2,000,000 people in Mosul. We hope to get as many out of the city prior to the attack.

2. We have to get Kurdish troops working in alliance with Iraq soldiers. We just can’t surprise them with an attack they did not know was coming.

3. Organizing forces to get ready for an attack will make certain the entire world knows what is going to happen. Donald, this is a desert area, you  cannot hide troops and equipment.

Forgotten People–Refugees

I am old enough to recall when, not thousands, but millions of people were refugees in Europe. World War II created the necessity for millions of people to leave one area that was once their home, and flee to another since their home was now part of a different nation. Today, hundreds of thousands are leaving the Middle East, and parts of Africa in search of  a new life. Ironically,  fewer and fewer people are moving from Mexico, despite the hysteria created by Donald Trump and fear mongers.

So, what happened when MILLIONS were refugees. I guess since so many people fell into that category, there was recognition of the need to do something. Frankly, most of them did not have any nation to return to. There were at least a million Jews who had survived the Holocaust, and the thought of returning to areas of Europe where their former neighbors had aided the Nazis made it impossible to return. So, wha to do today?

1. Europe and the US have to invest billions in the Middle East and Africa to develop jobs.

2. There is need for major water development projects to deal with decline in rainfall.

3. There is need for a regulated, reasonable number of refugees for each country in Europe and the US and Canada. Actually, Canada already is accepting Syrians.

4.How about each college in America sponsoring ten refugee students with free scholarships and room and board?

Just DO something!

What If Jesus Returned?

The other night, having nothing else to do, my mind wandered into the topic of what would Jesus think if he suddenly found himself in the 21st century. After all, the little Jewish Rabbi sort of went underground about two thousand years ago. So, here he is in the year, 2016.

1. I wonder what those buildings are with the name of Christianity? I guess they are named after someone called, Christianity. Gee, sounds a lot like my name.

2. Good Lord, these people seem to really enjoy killing one another.

3. Donald Trump, an interesting red headed man who shouts and insults people because of the color of their skin, gee, I am from the Middle East, I guess he thinks a dark skinned man like me is a rapist.

4. They keep on citing my name as they murder people, how did I  get associated with these murderers?

5. I thought I once made clear my feelings toward the wealthy and how hard it would be for them to get into heaven, honest, I didn’t mean you could buy  your way in.

6. How can I explain that I am a human just like them, honest, I did have a human dad!

7. I feel like crying seeing those pictures of children in ancient Syria being killed, makes me long for the good old days of Egyptian rule.

8. Adam and Eve must feel regrets for what they began.

Donald On War And Battle

Donald Trump proclaims that he is an expert on war, on battle, on who is or is not heroic. This is a man who received four draft deferments during the Vietnam war. Oh, he had a one spur, but for some reason this injury did not prevent him from playing tennis or engaging in other sport activities. So, the other day, Donald told another of his cheering audiences his views on what constitutes bravery in battle. He discussed issues pertaining to young Americans who have been fighting in the Middle East.

“When you talk about mental health problems, when people come back from war and combat and they see things that maybe a lot of folks in this room have seen, many times over, and you’re strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can’t handle it.” Let me see:

1. People in the room who have seen terrible things like those fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan. WHICH SIMILAR THINGS! Only 0.5% of Americans today serve in the armed forces.

2. This is the man who called John McCain a loser for being captured in combat. Donald  Trump is a coward, a piece of shit for insulting brave Americans.

The American In 2016

The other day I was thinking about key issues confronting America and realized that few speeches by Republicans ever mention these “minor”problems. For example:

1. Our Third World infrastructure which just got front page news when a commuter train in New Jersey slammed into a train station.

2. The ongoing story of Student Debt which prevents millions of young people from purchasing homes and stimulating the economy.

3. The denial of voting rights to a few million Americans who are blocked from voting by laws demanding voter ID even though the State Government does not issue this item to inhabitants of the state.

4. The need for an economic revival plan to provide meaningful decent paying jobs for those in poverty.

5. Retraining our police forces to ensure that shooting is only done as the LAST RESORT.

6. Developing a long term plan to confront the issue of automation ending jobs.

7. Rethinking the meaning of education in the  21st century.

8. The ever present issue of unequal pay for women.

9.The ever present issue of women being able to decide what is best for their bodies.

10. Oh, and there are a few items dealing with the world outside the US.
