We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.


In these dire times,have Republicans considered Dick Cheney or Don Rumsfeld?After all, Rumsfeld does  have a Donald in his name.

Then again, Jeb is still around and ready to serve.

Here in Illinois we  have a governor who refuses to allow money for colleges until the legislature ends unions. How about Rauner for president?

By the law of probability there MUST be someone in the Republican party who actually has one intelligent economic or foreign policy idea.

Since we have no Republican political leaders who took a course in science, how about making taking a course in science compulsory for new congressmen?

I just am unable to conceive how or why I would blow myself up, can you?

At age 85, I am in love with life, I guess those who are age 25 are in love with death.

War Of The Wives

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago there was a nation whose name was the United States of America which every four years conducted something termed an  election for a new President. Believe it or not, in those olden, olden days, two candidates argued about such mundane issues as how to create a vibrant economy or how to integrate newly arrived immigrants into the fabric of the nation or even–how to conduct an intelligent foreign policy. Alas, those were the olden days, and today, we have something called -the REPUBLICAN PARTY>

The current MAIN issue between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is the topic of their wives. Somehow, someone in the Cruz camp found a photo of Trump’s wife in a semi-nude pose. Naturally, this aroused the Donald man found an unflattering photo of the wife of Ted Cruz and the battle began. Ted now is rather upset: “Donald, you’re a sniveling coward and leave Heidi alone.”

Such are the issues confronting American society. After all, Donald and Ted have been yelling for months about the “unguarded border.” For some strange reason 140,000 more Hispanics LEFT AMERICA THAN ENTERED!

I assume the next issue will be the grandparents of the Trump or Cruz families.

Who Is In The Working Class?

A recent poll revealed that 56% of those in the age bracket of 18-35 regard themselves as part of the working class. Ordinarily,most Americans believe they are in the middle class. Unfortunately, those who have this viewpoint do not  understand the only way to ensure a decent wage for those in the working class is–UNIONS. Ironically, most of these young people do not believe in unions nor do they grasp that unless working class people stand together, they simply lack the power to compel bosses to pay decent wages.

Perhaps, it is time for unions to recognize a new form of “worker,” one who has been to college but can not get a decent job and has to endure a life of part time or fast food work. Of course, the new “working class”people have to support the right of workers to organize into unions and finally get decent wages for their work!

Tyrannosaur Reptile Did Live

I realize that many people actually believe we live in a modern era in which those  who attend school are smart. But, it was delightful to learn that millions of years ago, a distant life form roamed this planet who had greater intelligence than any person who attends Trump rallies. Ninety million years ago a horse like Tyrannosaur had an impressive sensory system. There is no doubt this animal could listen carefully and know when a noise in the distant was really a life  form shouting nonsense.

It appears this horse evolved into the dinosaur which grew  to a gigantic size and dominated the world. Today,  we have a  dinosaur  who roars and shouts and threatens the very existence of humanity. Imagine a President Trump with access to atomic weapons of mass destruction. Heck, this guy is ready to fight if someone shouts anger toward him, so how would he handle the Russian bully known as Vladimir Putin? Bombs Away!!

A  high percent of Americans have more fear about their job than terrorists.

ANGER is the name of the 2016 game of politics.

Donald Trump, Vietnam War draft dodger wants to punch someone out. He sure didn’t want to punch out Vietcong terrorists.

Every time Marco Rubio speaks, I hear a whimper of fear.

Poor Hillary, twice now beaten by a  slick politician.

We live in fear in a nation with so much wealth. Why?

Not a single candidate raises the issue of Automation! Why?


Oh Them Gun-Toting Todlers

I understand that Donald Trump is worried about Islamic terrorists. I understand he goes to sleep with a gun underneath his pillow in case one of those Muslim bad people enters his house seeking his wealth or life.  Jamie Gilt, a nice attractive mom who so loves guns and shooting and such, left a loaded .45 caliber handgun on the back seat of her car. Her four year old took the gun and shot mom.

Actually, this event is not unique in America.  In 2015 more people were shot and killed by kids in America than were murdered by Islamic terrorists since 9/11. In other words, an American is safer being in the company of a Muslim than being with his young child. Such is life in modern America!

Wither Republicans?

There are riots in Chicago, there are scenes of people throwing punches and threatening to inflict harm. Just another day on the Trump carnival of joy. His antics are suddenly raising fears among Republicans as to whether the con man has just played one too many cons. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich have issued statements denouncing inflammatory remarks by Donald as A cause of violence along the campaign trail.

Donald Trump has one never changing weakness–he simply does not know when to shut his big mouth.  He JUST had to tweet: “Bernie is lying when he says his disruptors aren’t told to go to my events.  Be careful Bernie or my supporters  will go to yours.” Despite seven months on the road to the presidency, Donald still insists that 6th grade words of war must be expressed. There MUST be millions of Americans who simply could not accept such behavior in any candidate for president–at least, I hope so.

These days Mitt Romney comes across as presidential,consider the Republican options.

The real dark horse in the fight to select a Republican candidate is–DICK CHENEY!

There is just something about the way Carly Fiorina speaks that makes me intensely dislike her.

OK, let’s be honest, Carly is a bitch!

Not a  single candidate has mentioned AUTOMATION  as a reason jobs are being lost–WHY Not?

I just know most Americans would so love to have those jobs making clothes return to our shores-heck, they might pay $15 an hour.

Republicans are united on one issue– there is no such thing as climate change. They believe there are seasons of the year.

I often wonder what God thinks about the current campaign to select a candidate.


Ted Cruz Is Ted Cruz

There is no question that Ted Cruz speaks with passion, with conviction, with emotion, with fervor, and he speaks with the words of a man  who believes that everything he has done in life was super. There is never a doubt in his mind, never a hesitation, never a question as to whether or not what he did might have been changes, when Ted says, “yes,” it means that Ted is right.

According to Ted stagnant wages are the result of Obamacare, the law that cost “millions of jobs.” An no point has Ted presented evidence which  of those “millions of jobs” were lost as a result of Obamacare. Ted is convinced that “millions of illegal immigrants” are sweeping over our border.The FACT is that last year 140,000 more Hispanics LEFT AMERICA than entered.

Ted wants to eliminate the IRS, he wants to cut taxes. This will definitely result in “millions of new jobs.” Again, he has never once stated where these jobs would come from and why they would offer good wages. I hate to note those in charge of a business set wages, and  the evidence is overwhelming that modern business leaders pay as little as they can get away with.

Marco Acts Grown Up

Marco Rubio decided that it was time to behave as someone who is no longer a teen ager. Not a single word about hands or lower body extremities. But, what actually did Marco say?

1. He made clear that humans “maybe, but most probably not, contributed to climate change. “Climate always changes.” Yes, indeed, it is sunny in the summer and cold in the winter so what about this so-called “scientific” conclusion. He never learned about this so-called “science” when he went to college!

2.He is tired of Barack Obama’s plan to take away Social Security from older Americans. Frankly, I never could exactly understand how Obama hated seniors or wanted to take away their benefits.

3. Marco wants to “make America great again.” Then again, so does every Republican candidate.

4. Marco loves Israel and opposes any state of Palestine. After all, if one desires money from Sheldon Adelson, what else must one say?

5. Once again I heard the story of his dad, the bartender, who made it in America.

6. He does not like the Iran deal, and if you want reasons why it is wrong, just check with Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu. Oh, he would prefer to “double down on sanctions.”  NO explanation as to what that means, but then again, he is an adult now.

OK, no juvenile behavior, but no intelligent adult ideas.
