Remember Republicans On War Heros?

Members of the Republican party are very upset over comments made by Donald Trump. Trump charged that John McCain was “not a hero” because he was captured during the Vietnam war and underwent horrible torture. Now Perry and Rubio and Jeb Bush are furious that anyone would stoop so low as to insult a man who was a war hero. Gee, as I recall, back during the 2004 election, John Kerry, who had won the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and purple hearts for being wounded was viciously attacked by Republicans for not deserving his medals.

Swift Boat For Truth Veterans attacked John Kerry claiming he never should have been awarded any medals for bravery. President George Bush, who never served in Vietnam, applauded this attack upon a war hero. He wrote Bud Day who led the smear,”I simply can not express in words how much I value your willingness to stand up against John Kerry.”

So,now Republicans are upset at Donald Trump for doing what they once thought was great-insult a war hero!

A Tale Of Three Men In 1968

The year was 19698 and over four hundred thousand young Americans were fighting in a far away place known as Vietnam. One of these young men was involved in the political world and obtained at least four draft deferments because, as he so aptly noted, “I had better things to do”than fight in faraway wars. His name was Dick Cheney. Another young man was attending an Ivy League college, going out with gorgeous women and having wonderful dinners at night clubs. By the time he graduated from college and went to work in dad’s real estate firm he had accumulated $271,000. He also obtained draft deferments and never went to war. His name was Donald Trump.

The third man was in a prison in North Vietnam and had been tortured and beaten and abused for months. He turned down a deal under which he would apologize for fighting against the Viet Cong and then would be allowed to go home. He turned down the deal. His name was John McCain.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump, Dick Cheney, and little George Bush, all made certain not to fight for their country during war.

Donald Trump received cheers from the crazies when he insulted Americans who had to surrender.

It increasingly is evident that most Republicans dislike those who serve their country in war.

Donald has seized the favor of those who feel lost in modern America.

Republicans cheer when words of hate are uttered against the President. Such is their patriotism.

Donald Trump’s idea of war is attacking attractive women-without mercy.

Reactions To Iran Surrender

I decided to check with the only loyal people left in this nation after Obama and Kerry sold us out to Iran.

Donald Trump: Elect me president and I will personally lead the invasion of Iran.

Rick Perry: I need a few moments to check exactly what is the location of Iran.

Jeb Bush: My brother had it right, Iran is part of the Axis of Evil–Iraq, North Korea and Iran.

Chris Christie: If I can take out a bridge, just let me take out Iran!

Scott Walker: I stood up to teacher and firemen and police unions, just wait until I stand up against those Iran Muslims!

Rand Paul: Let me check with dad as to what I should be for.

Bibi Netanyahu: Elect me President of the US and just watch those bombers bomb!

George Pataki: Are you really asking me questions about world events?

Ben Carson: I stand for free enterprise and hard work. That solves all problems.

Lindsay Graham Is Confused

Lindsay Graham is a close friend of John McCain and a leader in the US Senate for being tough. By, “tough,” he means never giving into any bad people unless the bad people are bad people that we term to be good people. In 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry reached an interim agreement with the Iranian government concerning nuclear development. Naturally, since the agreement had been with bad people, Lindsay and John rushed to condemn Kerry for selling out to evil.

Yesterday, Lindsay offered a rather bizarre explanation as to why he opposes the current agreement with Iran. He now believes the 2013 agreement, is one that “worked better than I,myself, thought so hats off to John Kerry.” In other words,the 2015 agreement that John Kerry helped to negotiate is bad so let us return to square one when Kerry was the good guy. I leave to others an explanation as to how Senator Lindsay Graham thinks.

Iran Deal Or No Deal

One of America’s leading authorities on foreign policy has weighed in on the recent deal with Iran,and given his past ability to grasp the subtle aspects of conducting negotiations with other nations, it is time for President Obama to reflect on what he claims to have accomplished. Former Governor Rick Perry’s comments should make Obama pause and reflect for a moment. The man who sort of got confused as to which departments are in the Cabinet is dead sure that Obama made a terrible mistake. “What I saw out of the President today, and this is of great consternation to me, I saw a very naive man who does not know how the world works, who cannot put the dots together.”

President Obama was working with five other important nations who, I assume, have some grasp as to how the world works. Frankly, I doubt if Perry could even locate Iran on the map. His comment is that of just about every man or woman seeking the Republican nomination. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if one of them could actually offer an ALTERNATIVE PLAN! Oops, I forgot, Donald Trump wants to lead soldiers into battle.

Scott Steps Up To Plate

Another week, another Republican candidate for president. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has formed a super pac, and he has let Americans know where he stands.

1.He is a Christian. Goes to church.

2. Of course, some of his best friends are Jews, not that he would ever marry one.

3. He takes on labor unions. He compares his stand against the Teacher Union with the stand he will take against ISIS. Just about the same threat to America from either of these groups.

4. He stands firmly in favor of the $7.25 cents an hour for workers. He worked while going to college, so why not students today? Of course, never finished college, but so what? After all, he knows more than any college professor. Just have one of them challenge him to a duel no how to organize a super pac!

5. Scott talked with our Founding Fathers and they informed him the idea of a photo ID was on the tip of their tongues when writing the Constitution.

6. Scott never allowed a single dollar to be given Planned Parenthood because he believes in the right of women not to have rights concerning their own body.

Some believe in paying workers decent salaries so they will purchase goods and buy houses, Scott is convinced that our beloved wealthy folks are just dying to pay decent wages.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Scott Walker boasts of “taking on the unions.” People are in unions. Figure out your meaning.

$7.25 cents an hour for Walker’s enemy.

Donald Trump’s great sorrow is not being made a general to lead men into battle.

Some honor life, some death.

I often wonder at the last thoughts of those blowing self up.

I was raised in a world in which the goal was making it easy for people to vote.

Republicans now have enough candidates to form two football teams, let the game proceed.

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?

NRA Seeks To Save Australia!

Throughout the years there has been constant attacks from this blog upon the National Rifle Association. Little did I realize the goal of the NRA was to prevent violence by arming just about everyone in the damn country. Wayne LePierre blasted the government of Australia for its outlandish laws that encourage the buy-back of weapons. The Aussie government has been engaged in purchasing guns and forbidding anyone to have an automatic weapon let alone bullets for such guns. According to the NRA head, “the Australian people paid a massive price in liberty” by taking guns off the streets. So, what is the situation today in Australia:

1. A boy from South Carolina could not purchase weapons to defend the white race.

2. Daily shoot-out here in Chicago simply do not occur in the defenseless land of Australia.

3. I just cannot get my automatic weapon ready for action when on a stroll in the park and are assaulted by a squirrel!

4. Children in Australian schools at least will not get shot today!

Voting Rights For The Wealthy

I realize that Republicans are always insisting this action or that action was required because they did not wish to do anything that went against our Founding Fathers. I brief review of American history would enable Republicans who continually set one barrier after another in the way of someone who wants to vote that the entire history of America from 1789 until 1965 was the struggle to ensure that ALL Americans whether they poor people, landless people, white or black skinned people or whether they were females had the right to vote. During the past few years Republican legislatures and governors have passed one restriction after another in the way of those seeking to vote.

A court case has now hit North Carolina which charges that he has pushed through legislation that interferes with the right to vote. I assume he will argue that goal is to prevent voter fraud. In the past presidential election there were fewer than TWENTY CASES OF VOTER FRAUD! I have been voting since 1952 in the US Army, the state of New York, and the state of Missouri without anyone demanding voter ID from me. They just checked off my name on a list. Perhaps, we have to return to the good old days of Tammany Hall when real politicians controlled voting. At least their goal was to TURN OUT THE VOTE–not prevent it!
