Rand Paul Is Thin Skinned

There are many nice things one can say about Rand Paul, at least he is not a Republican who devotes his time ranting and raving about lazy poor people who are stealing the money of those who are job creators. he makes common sense remarks about our drug laws, and expresses concern about the large number of black and Hispanic men who are in jail for minor crimes such as having pot in their possession. Senator Rand Paul was recently being interviewed by the British newspaper, Guardian, when once again he lost his cool. The interviewer asked about a remark he made which stated than a disproportionate number of blacks were in jail for minor crimes. The interviewer wondered if that comment would play out among Republican Christians.

Rand responded: “Actually I think I can take that message into a white evangelical church anywhere in Iowa and be received well.” The reporter noted that polls indicated that two thirds of Republicans do not agree with his view. At that moment, the interview ended and Rand Paul walked away. Sorry, Rand, this is politics, better learn how to smile when challenged by the media.

Obama Meets Bad Guy!

Once again, Barack Obama is doing something very bad. First, he worked with Iran in order to help them get an atomic bomb, and now this weekend he will be talking with Cuban leader, Raul Castro at the summit meeting of western hemisphere leaders that is being held in Panama. Imagine, an American president who sits down and talks with bad people who murder their own people!!

1. Republican President Richard Nixon opened diplomatic relations with Communist China whose leader, Mao Tse-tung had murdered at least TWENTY MILLION Chinese as well as klling 20,000 US soldiers during theKorean war.

2. St. Ronald Reagan met with leaders of the Soviet Union and worked out agreements.

3. Today, the US has diplomatic relations with Saudi Arabia, a nation which lacks religious freedom and yearly chops off the head of a few dozen people.

4. Actually, during the 1980s,St.Ronald worked with Saddam Hussein when he murdered thousands with gas attacks.

5. The US has had diplomatic relations with Sri Lanka in which a few hundred thousand Tamils were murdered during a civil war.

6.Then again, we had diplomatic relations with President Assad of Syria.

Name any evil leader in this world and we have worked with that person.

So, Barack, go ahead and talk, it is better than going ahead with war and violence.

Oh, it is legal in Communist Cuba to practice the Catholic religion although not legal in our ally, Saudi Arabia.

People With Bad Ideas

There is a popular view among conservatives in America that the cause of all and any problem in this nation stems from those who have bad ideas. Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, you name the person, and they will carefully explain that we do not have any economic or social issues in this nation, any and all problems stem from the bad ideas of that man in the White House. According to Fox News this nation is engaged in a great war, and the war is all about who has the right ideas. Naturally, those with bad ideas are members of the Democratic party and all it takes to get this nation back to happiness and prosperity is to elect people who have the right ideas.

BAD IDEAS

Raise taxes on wealthy. This idea violates the Ten Commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ

Give people food stamps. They will just spend the money on liquor and gambling.

Rebuild our infrastructure, this leads to people driving on Sunday when they should be in church praying.

Talk rather than shoot when encountering a black boy on the streets.

Enable women to get power in business, that means they are not at home with the kids.

Pass a law in Congress that controls business power, this means less money from lobbyists.

Then again, pass any law in Congress.

Talk with Iran rather than bombing that land.

Oppose our greatest mind in the Middle East, Bibi Netanyahu.

Oh, for people with GOOD IDEAS!

With God On Our Side

With God’s blessing, Rand Paul is running for president, Ted Cruz insists that he is merely dong what the Lord told him by seeking to become the next president, Jeb became a Catholic in order to do what God wants, Rick Perry can not make a statement without invoking the Lord. Sarah Palin talks with God every day and Marco Rubio thanks God for getting his family our of Cuba. Here are some other examples of how
God has blessed the American people.

With God on their side, Europeans wiped out the Indians with guns and germs.

With God on both sides, 600,000 died in the Civil War.

Naturally, God was on the side of those who kept slaves.

With God on our side we went to Asia in order to uplift some folk.

With God on both sides World War I led to the death of millions.

We had God on our side as we defeated Nazi Germany and then we asked God to get on their side to beat the Russians.

Where does God get the time to be on our side?

Oh, I forgot, God is on the side of Muslim fanatics!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Why is it OK to hack other nations but it is not OK for them to hack us?

Rand Paul is not a chip off the block of his dad.

Some day someone will explain the fighting in Yemen so I can understand it.

Long time since I head from Rick Santorum.

Whatever happened to Herman Cain?

Then again, when does Rick Perry speak out about something?

We live in strange times with strange people.

Bibi, Foreign Policy Expert?

Members of the Republican party and a lot of Democratic Senators regard Israel Prime Minister as an expert on the Middle East. Here is the record:

1. In 1992, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from having an atomic bomb.

2. In 2002 Bibi insisted that America had to invade Iraq and end the menace of Saddam.

3. In 2003, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from an atomic bomb.

4. When Bibi took over leadership of Israel, its closest ally was Turkey and the IDF and Turkish army units conducted joint exercises. Today, Turkey is furious at Israel due to attacks on its ships and murder of
Turkish citizens.

5. In 2010 Bibi insisted that Iran was close to having an atomic bomb.

6. Bibi believes the solution we should follow is to bomb Iran.

7. Hezbollah in Lebanon has 30,000 missiles which will be sen toward Israel in case of war.

8. The prior three heads of Mossad insist that attacking Iran would be a mistake.

So, why is Bibi an expert??

Bibi Never Gives UP

It is understandable that Bibi Netanyahu is upset because the good old days when American forces fought and died in Iraq is no longer possible. Bibi is a fighter who never gives up regardless of the fact the guy he is fighting wants to end violence and work for peace. Of course, Bibi and his buddies in Congress are convinced that Iranians can not be trusted and the only land in the Middle East which can is ISRAEL. So, examine the record:

Israel launched an attack in 1956 against Egypt until told to stand down by President Eisenhower–a Republican.

Israel launched an attack in 1967 and won the Six Day War.

Israel invaded Lebanon in the 1980s

Israel has four times invaded the Gaza Strip.

And, violent Iran: IT HAS NEVER INVADED A MIDDLE EASTERN NATION.

Anyway, Yuval Steinitz, Israel minister strategic affairs said that military action is possible against Iran. “It was on the table. It is still on the table. It’s going to remain on the table.”More words of peace from Israel.

Republicans On Middle East

The attack upon Barack Obama continues as members of the Republican party and their media source, Fox News, continue to insist that whatever has happened in the Middle East is the result of blunders on the part of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Examine the record:

1. ISIS was created due to mistakes by President Obama. He refused to recognize this organization as an important development.

Reality: Actually, some truth to this charge, when ISIS arose, Obama did not recognize what it represented. He thought it was simply another version of al-Qaeda.

2. Obama failed to maintain US troops in Iraq.

Reality: He refused to allow US troops because the government of Prime Minister Maliki really did not want them to remain and refused to accept a condition that Americans would not be tried in Iraq courts. Imagine what Fox News would do if US troops could be placed on trial in an Iraq court?

3. Fox News and SOME REPUBLICANS insist we need “troops on the ground.”

Reality: Every poll reveals the American people oppose this action. And, this feeling is shared by Republicans such as Rand Paul.

Reality: We are living in the aftermath of the blunder of invading Iraq. We will live with this action for several more years.

StandFor Religious Freedom

The ongoing mantra of the Republican party and its mouthpiece, Fox News is that our Founding Fathers believed this or that. Justice Scalia continues to insist our Founding Fathers had clear ideas about freedom for the individual and they definitely did not want the government to regulate business, of course, there were no such business establishments in those days. But, it is very clear that our beloved FoundingFathers had clear ideas concerning separation of church and state. The First Amendment stated that religion had no place in our government. They would have been aghast at laws that have been passed such as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Our Founding Fathers were Deists who did not believe ANY organized religion should be able to control ANY aspect of government.

Indiana, along with other states, has passed this ridiculous unconstitutional law. According to Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, it is akin to a ‘whites only” sign in the good old days when whites could keep black skinned folk out of their neighborhoods. Governor Spence now insists the law was passed because it was concerned about rights of gays. Huh? It is time to return to the ideas of our Founding Fathers. Keep government out of the religious aspects of our lives, George Washington disliked any form of religion in our government. I assume it he was alive today, Fox News would declare that he hated our Constitution!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I long for the time when I know who are the good guys in life.

A modern miracle is when a bill is passed through Congress.

I wonder if there is a Tea Party in Heaven?

Ted Cruz is living proof that one should not send your child to an Ivy League institution.

Your local junior college can do a better job of education than Ivy League professors who passed Ted Cruz in their classes.

Say, whatever happened to Bill Clinton? Is he still around?

I wonder if Hillary was a man whether women would vote for him?
