Marco Goes For Jugular

Marco has decided to stay away from Donald since he fears getting the big bully angry at him could result in some heated exchanges that make him out to be the next little boy sent to eat at the kid’s table. So, he went after Chris Christie and Ted Cruz. Just some encounters with the junior bully and the little chubby boy who used to be left out of playing on the playground.

Marco and Chris.  He charged that Chris Christie in his earlier life was a fervent liberal who supported all those terrible things that no decent person in Iowa would ever accept. He charged Chris with being a supporter of abortion rights, gun control, and being a close friend and ally of Barack Obama. Naturally, Chris wanted one and all to understand that his heart has always been in Iowa and he was thinner then so his mind was thinner also when it came to issues that get one popular in the Republican party.

Marco charged that Ted Cruz was for more immigrants arriving carrying Green Cards, he supported the Constitution which says anyone born in America was a citizen,and he opposed raising the military budget. Ted wants everyone to know he opposes any kind of immigrant– except his dad, that is– and he  loves the US military and will vote to give them more and more guns and other weapons. Ted also pointed out that Marco worked with the evil Democrats on immigration reform. Marco can not recall any such discussions.

I trust this clears up what each man believes.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Strange times create strange political leaders.

Has anyone checked out exactly where Donald Trump was really born?

Oh well, at least no one wonders where Jeb Bush was born, then again, no one cares.

Paul Ryan during the State of the Union message never cracked a smile, nor used his hands to applaud.

I still await Dick Cheney to enter the presidential race, he never did run for President.

I wonder when the expression, “boots-on-the-ground” first appeared and by whom?

I wonder if we still had the Draft would political leaders change their tune about being tough guys ready to fight?

 

 

We Miss You Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul appeared on the Trevor Noah program and reminded one and all what we will miss at the next Republican debate. He has been removed from main stage and sent to the children’s table. However, Senator Paul is not that desperate -as are Huckabee or Santorum–for a few minutes on the political stage talking to no one. He has refused a place at the kid’s table and is heading for New Hampshire.

On the Trevor Noah show Rand Paul displayed a calm ironic tone, a few sensible remarks, and a vivid example of what the anti-Trump would sound like. Rand Paul is the only Republican who can mock himself as he mocks others. He does not believe each word he speaks is the word of God. In fact, he spent several minutes discussing issues without once referring to his belief in God or that he was sent to Earth by the  Lord Himself to save us all–from OBAMA!

I disagree with most Rand Paul ideas such as ending regulation of people. He wants to give people freedom from government. Unfortunately, Senator Paul we used to have state governments and cities in the South that segregated humans based on skin color. We needed Federal laws to prevent such violation of human dignity. Remember, Senator, giving the “People” all power all too often means bad people can control events.

Iranian Revolutionary Guards And Peace

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards have just handed Donald Trump a few hundred thousand votes. There are now pictures of US sailors on their knees with hands behind their heads. Two naval boats had technical problems and drifted into Iranian waters. Now that America has this sight, it will infuriate the religious and conservative forces in America. It simply adds fuel to the Trump rant that America has lost prestige in the world because we allow petty tyrants to push us around.

Reality:

1. The Revolutionary Guards dislike the recent nuclear deal. They have used sanctions to control vast markets in Iran and make millions since they can deliver goods from nations that support their economic plans to control the Iranian economy.

2. President Rouhani is seeking to open trade and commerce in an effort to reduce the power of Revolutionary Guard leaders.

This incident was deliberate –get Americans angry, end the  nuclear agreement, and allow the Revolutionary Guards to continue their economic exploitation of Iran.

Oscar Wants Enemies To Slow Down

Oscar Pistorious was born in South Africa without legs and had special artificial legs made so he could become an outstanding runner. He even appeared in the Olympics.  Oscar became famous in his native land and adored by gobs of women. One night when he was with a woman, Oscar claimed he heard a noise in the bathroom and assumed it was a murderer out to end his life. So, he blasted away with guns winding up killing his girl friend.

There was a trial for this famous person. As most trials of the famous conclude it is rare that any  such person is sent to the electric chair. Oscar spent a few months in jail and was released to home confinement in a luxurious place with its own swimming pool. The South African Supreme Court of Appeals  questioned the verdict and ordered a new trial.  Oscar’s lawyer denounced this action  because it “unfairly discriminated  against the applicant on the ground of his disability, vulnerability, and anxiety.”

In other words, Oscar was scared, he did not have real legs so what else could he do but fire away to protect his life? I wonder if he ever was concerned about the life of the woman?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder how a President Donald Trump would handle armed guys taking over Federal property.

There are thousands of Americans of Latin American heritage in our armed forces and not a single one is named–Ted Cruz.

Republicans so want to fight someone –with someone else’s boys.

Is Jeb Bush still in the race for the Republican nomination?

It’s Tuesday and somewhere in Chicago some innocent child will die today.

We need El Chapo to be handed the job of cleaning up the Middle East of terrorists.

A meeting mad in hell–President Trump with President Putin!

Saudi Arabia And Iran Conflict

Iran is a Shiite Muslim nation of over eighty million people which has an army of at least one million, Saudi Arabia is a Sunni Muslim nation of about twenty-nine million people and an army of about  200,000. Iran’s armed force has fought in major wars against Iraq, while Saudi Arabia’s army has never fought against any group other than some guerrilla forces. So, what does Saudi Arabia do– murder forty seven men by hanging or cutting off heads, including an imam whose worst crime was to peacefully urge changes in the policies of the Saudi Arabian government.

The end result of riots in Tehran against the Saudi legation or bombing in Yemen by the Saudi air force which has never once in its existence fought against planes from another nation, bomb away at Shiite fighters in Yemen. Each side is now engaged in a  war of words. Each claims to be the leader of Muslim nations in the Middle East. In the end, neither wants to have a war so they each will assist in the deaths of innocent non-Iranian, and non-Saudi Muslims in the Middle east.

The Great war of Words has begun!

Silence Of The Imams

The United States of America has played an important role in creating the mess which now dominates the Middle East. Syria is simply one example of misguided efforts by the Bush administration and Republicans seeking the presidency. However, the reality is that civil war rages in Syria and it is based upon conflict between Muslim groups. At points it is impossible to understand who is killing who in what constitutes the “nation” of Syria.

But, there is a strange silence about daily deaths in Syria. Finally, the Syrian government allowed trucks loaded with supplies to enter the besieged town of  Madaya. Reports indicate dozens have died of malnutrition and thousands are rapidly reaching that stage. But, the amazing aspect of this situation is the silence emanating from Muslim clerics. Where are the Martin Luther Kings marching to support Muslims dying? Where are demands from Muslim leaders for an end to murdering innocent Muslims? T

The silence falls on deaf ears!

Putin Makes A Point

During the administration of George H.W. Bush and George Bush the goal of US European foreign policy was to push NATO eastward to ensure that anti-Russian nations were on the  Russian border.  As Putin put it: “twenty-five years ago,the Berlin wall fell, but invisible walls moved to eastern Europe. NATO and the United States wanted to complete victory over the Soviet Union. This had led to mutual misunderstandings and assignments of guilt. We’e done everything wrong.

The key word is “we’ve’ which indicates that Putin is finally admitting a role in creating tensions in eastern Europe. At one of the Republican debates Carly Fiorina boasted that if she were president she would place missiles on the border of Russia. Other Republicans wanted to shoot down Russian planes in Syria. Russia had a point, threatening to destroy Russia carries consequences. And, Trump and the boys and girls are dangerous to the cause of peace in eastern Europe.
 

Trump Words Of Wisdom

There is one category in which Donald Trump is master of  words, descriptions of other people. Here are some samples of his observations on the human condition:

John McCain– “dummy.”

Martial arts champion Ronda Rhousy — “not  a nice person.”

Vladimir Putin — ” a strong leader.”

Kim Jong-un:  “You’ve go to give him credit, how many young guys take over those tough generals?”

Ted Cruz — foreign born guy.

Rand Paul — guy with funny hair.

Donald Trump —  a man with Great Plans!
