NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Is there any possibility the plane bound for Egypt actually had a mechanical failure?

In reality, ISIS IS being forced from territory they occupy without any actions by Donald Trump.

Some day someone will actually explain to me how America will become Great Again.

2016 Americans are a wonderful group for con men to make gobs of money.

By the way, I  am willing to share my Nigerian fortune with anyone willing to give me a thousand dollars.

Gee, these days I really miss the old times with Richard Nixon.

I wonder what was the last baseball game completed in less than two hours.

Score One For USA!

As you recall  or don’t recall, a fundamental  belief of the Bush administration and the Obama administration and the yet to arrive Trump administration is the key to success in destroying evil Muslim terrorists is to kill –or should we say–murder the leaders of these evil people. Get rid of them and then what–according to Bush, Obama, Clinton and Trump:

1. All the bad Muslim terrorists will be so very, very upset, they will  pack up their explosives and head for home or someplace where they will not go boom, boom any more.

So, the CIA now claims they killed–murdered that is– the Taliban leader, Mullah Athfar Mansoor and that means there is no Taliban left in Afghanistan.

Oh, as you recall how happy President Obama when they got Osama bin Laden since he could now announce the end of the Taliban.

Mr. President,your announcement appears to have NO effect on the Taliban in Afghanistan!

Just Another Day In Iraq

The good news from Iraq these days is that one knows the day before what will be the news from Iraq tomorrow. A majority of people in Iraq are Shiites and a minority are Sunni Muslims. Under Saddam Hussein, the Sunnis ran Iraq. Now, that he is gone, Shiites are making up for lost time with discrimination against Sunnis, including arresting Sunni political leaders. So, one can daily expect the following:

Yesterday in Baghdad, 67 dead and 87 wounded in a Shiite marketplace. Later in the day, a suicide bomber wearing a vest blew himself up and murdered 17 Shiites and wounded a few dozen. We can expect tomorrow that suicide bomber will blow himself up in a Sunni marketplace area.

And, so on, and so on, and so on. Will this madness ever end?

The Hillary File

If one reads the media or engages in any aspect of social media it is quite clear that millions of Americans believe that Hillary Clinton is:

A liar

Untrustworthy

Violates security laws

Engages in secret violations of the law regarding her income

Has a shady past

At present, she is  under investigation for security breaches since she sent emails that might have been illegal. As one who was once cleared for US Army Top Secret, and NATO Top Secret, the charges against her are a farce. At this moment, there are over TWO MILLION PEOPLE who are cleared for Top Secret. In other words, there is NO Top Secret that is Secret!

We have heard over and over, the word, BENGHAZI. As Secretary of State, Clinton was technically responsible for over 100 Embassy sites. In 1983, while Ronald Reagan was president, Hammas Islamic terrorists blew up a Marine barracks in Lebanon and killed 250 Marines. NOT A SINGLE DEMOCRAT IN CONGRESS BLAMED THE PRESIDENT OR ASKED FOR AN INVESTIGATION! If we adhere to Republican claims that the Secretary of State is responsible for every criminal act in or around an Embassy site, why not just arrest every Secretary of State?

As of this date, Hillary Clinton has NEVER been charged and convicted of any crime. The former Republican Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, has now been convicted of molesting several children. For some reason, no Republican is blaming Mrs. Hastert as an “enabler.”

The Toilet Wars Rage

There are moments when one wonders how the hell one wound up in the United States of America during what appears to go for an election. OK, there are some minor problems such as income inequality or student debt or lack of good paying  jobs, not merely for newly graduated college students but for anyone seeking to make a decent life. If one examine the recently concluded Republican primary it is quite clear those seeking the Republican nomination had different ideas as to what is wrong in America.

1. Taxes on the rich are too high and that is why there are not enough well paying jobs.

2. Students made the debt, and since they are not a big business, they have to pay the debt they incurred.

BUT, the recurring issue that, at one point or another, winds up as THE important issue of modern America is–who can piss and shit in a public bathroom? There apparently is some special quality to shit produced by transgender folks and this means, stay out of bathrooms.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, continues to insist that North Carolina is the NINTH LARGEST STATE and this means something about where transgender folks should piss and shit. As anyone knows, God only shits in a bathroom where people shit based on the gender listed on their birth  certificate.

All I can say to Governor McCrory is–PISS ON YOU!

NRA Originalists Believe In Founding Fathers

Ammon Bundy led gun owners and those seeking to take over Federal conservation areas on ground they simply support the ideas of former Justice Antonin Scalia and the silent Justice Clarence Thomas who claim they interpret the Constitution according the the  original intention of our Founding Fathers. These “originalists” are convinced the Founding Fathers wanted all power and control of land to be given to State governments. Let’s  examine the record:

The  original government of the newly independent states was based upon the Articles of Confederation. This government eliminated a strong executive and gave all power to the states. The result was absolute chaos and even minor rebellions such as the Shays Rebellion.

Our FOUNDING FATHERS called for a Convention that abolished the Articles of Confederation and created a powerful executive. The entire aim of our FOUNDING FATHERS was to curtail State power and transfer it to the new Federal  government. THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL INTENTION!

Oh, and President Thomas Jefferson pushed through the purchase of the Louisiana Territory which then fell under the authority of the Federal Government.

Who Wants To Go To Heaven?

Once upon  a time, a few months ago, there was a teacher named Reince Priebus who had a class of 16 boys and one girl. One day, he told the students about the wonders of this wonderful place high up in the sky which is called, Republican Heaven. He asked how many of them wanted to go to  Heaven. A red haired boy named Donald shot his hand into the air and said: “Me, only Me, because I am the most intelligent in this class, and I know the most and when I get to heaven I’m going to build the largest, the biggest wall so that no one will ever again get in without an OK from me.”

Benny Carson said:”that’s OK with me as long as you buy the story of my life.”

Carly said: “Nobody, and I mean no guy is getting there before me. I’m the smartest in this whole  class of dumb bells.”

Little Marco said: “If I get to heaven will it mean that I will never again sweat so much?”

Jeb said: “Well, Donald, my big brother already got there and he said that I’m going to be the next one to get into Heaven, so there!”

Randy Paul said: “Heaven, schmeaven, who cares. Frankly, I really don’t want to go with Donald.”

Johnny Kasich said: “Can I get lots of food to eat in Heaven?”

Mikey Huckabee said: “I promise to pray for  all in this class to get to heaven. God almighty already said I’m going.”

Teddie said: “There is no way I’m going to heaven if Donald goes!”

What the rest said, no one cares about.

So, Whose To Blame?

I believe there is a group in the Republican party who claim to be “moderates.” The entire Bush family, dear old Mitt Romney, and guys like Lindsay Graham or Don Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney are presently casting themselves as leaders of the “moderate” wing of the Republican party. They finally, yes, finally, are upset at  Republican who makes outrageous comments concerning Obama or Hispanics or Muslims or even Wall Street Bankers, and so this group is gathering together in order to “save” the Republican party.

Of course, the real question is–save the Republican party from whom? Donald Trump  has merely been shouting the same words spoken in a  softer tone by every Republican over the past 12 years. Republicans have turned down every offer to create a health care system, and when Obama created one  based on REPUBLICAN ideas, they shouted to heaven–SOCIALISM! Republicans denounced “Big Government” even while expanding Big Government into Bigger Government. They have shouted that only cutting taxes could save America from the evil of taxing those with wealth who are the job CREATORS. Donald Trump has turned their  own words around and gained millions of supporters. Donald ?Trump is the creation of “MODERATE” Republicans!

If one creates a Frankenstein,  beware when he strides around.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if Donald would hump Carly Fiorina?

Modern times– forest fires in Canada just forced 80,000 to evacuate an entire city!

Hillary – ask Bernie to run with you!

Donald Trump is the logical result of 8 years of Republican obstruction in Congress.

I wonder what ISIS leaders think about the American presidential election?

So, how come the EU is breaking up while the new American colonies agreed to come together?

Miracle in Chicago –the Cubs headed for a World Series win for the first time in a hundred years?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think Republicans need Rudy Giuliani to save America just as he single-handedly did on 9/11.

Cruz and Fiorina– a match made in heaven!

In all honesty, Bernie left Brooklyn but Brooklyn never left Bernie.

Donald prefers being Donald to presidential.

A miracle that will never occur is a day of peace in Syria.

Republicans never explain what “Making America Great Again” means,great in which respect?

It becomes increasingly clear the only purpose of Republican primaries is to  help some folks sell their books.

At age 85, I somehow missed the meaning or purpose of the Kardashian age.

These days I have come to conclude that Hell is being forced to sit before a TV set listening to the Republican debates for ETERNITY!

My great regret this year is that Elizabeth Warren did not seek the presidency.

Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has identified the greatest threat confronting America– the Government wants to regulate our ceiling fans!

First they came for our health care, then they came for our light bulbs, then they came for our ceiling fans, and next, no doubt, is regulation of our toilet seats!!
