NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Actually, Donald DOES have small hands, but no one talks about his small brain.

Only in America can someone seeking to lead the land have his main advisors be his family.

The New York Yankees have gone from being the Bronx Bombers to the Bronx Slumbers.

Anger towards immigrants will lead England to leave the EU.

Strange, ever since we Humans left Africa we have become angry to those who arrive in an area after we did.

I last fired a rifle in June, 1953 when  leaving the Army. Never once since then felt the need to fire the damn thing.

Bullets kill people, not praying.

My nightmare –Ivanka Trump as president!

Guns For All Americans

If one listens to the rhetoric of Republicans, particularly, Republicans who serve in Congress, just about all Americans love guns and, regard protection of guns as the Number One issue confronting this nation. So, in the spirit of guns, how about a  few suggestions to further the importance of guns in our lives:

1. Effective on January 1, 2017, each child born in the United States of America will be given a free gun to play with in their crib.

2. In the spirit of the right of every American to be protected in their right  to a gun, from now on, police will not be allowed to have guns in order to ensure that each citizen cannot be  murdered by the oppressive government of this land.

3. Each and every child in America will now take a course in firing their weapon. Failure to attain a 70% target success will deny the student of their high school diploma.

4. If every passenger on a plane is armed, just let a terrorist attempt to take over the plane!

5. How about each and every member of Congress must bring their weapon to each session. Perhaps, instead of verbal debates, they could have shooting debates!

6. At least one presidential debate should include a shoot-out between Hillary and Donald.

Head For The Olympics?

I find amusing observing workers in Brazil working furious to complete stadiums, or train tracks, or housing for the athletes. Of course, I do not find amusing asking swimmers to perform in filthy water or female athletes to put on a show of their prowess while the Zika character hangs around ready to bite and make the life of a pregnant woman horrible.

Russian track athletes are now barred from the Olympics due to drug allegations that have now been proved to be true. There is a severe shortage of hotel rooms, and gangs of thugs roam the streets. Sorry,guys,this is not the time for an Olympics in Brazil. Now,we do offer a few suggestions as to a more hospitable location:

Disney world in Orlando,Florida.

Disneyland in California.

Chicago with its weekly murder of 12 people, plus the wounding of fifty.

Cleveland–now that they have a basketball champion and the Republican convention, why not the Olympics with LeBron James being the sponsor?

Why would any young woman go to Rio is the question of the day!!

 

On Our Founding Fathers

On virtually every issue that arrives on the scene, at some time or other a Republican will insist -this is what our Founding Fathers wanted. Let’s examine the issues of the day:

1. Republicans insist there is no such thing as “science.” Benjamin Franklin was considered among the top scientists in the western world. Thomas Jefferson was a scientist who boasted of his scientific knowledge.Anyone running a plantation in the South required utilization of scientific methods.

2. Ah, the infamous 2nd Amendment. Actually, the 2nd Amendment specifically says  “a well armed militia.” At no point is there any mention of every citizen having the right to possess a weapon.

3. Bill O Reilly insists that every American grabbed a gun and fought the British in the Revolution. The US had a population of about 2,500,000 people. If you add up all those who served in the Revolution  it means that no more than 100,000 actually served at any one point. OH, one-third were classified as “Loyalists” who supported the King. After the Revolution, about 100,000 Loyalists left to live in Canada.

4. Republicans insist our Founding Fathers wanted limited government in which States had the power. Actually, the original government of the Articles of Confederation gave States power. That is why our Founding Fathers called a Constitutional Convention to create a powerful National Government!

5. Oh, the First Amendment separated government from religion. Our Founding Fathers would have gagged at Republican efforts to allow religions not to obey the laws of the land!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald wants advice, has he considered the clowns in the Ringling Brothers circus?

I wonder which city is next on the LeBron James list to save?

Say, whatever happened to Chris Christie– never hear from him these days?

My advice to Donald, quit waving around those tiny hands.

Gee, I wonder what advice Donald’s daughter, Ivanka  can offer?

Future historians will term America in 2016, the era of ANGER.

I await the next Hillary fuck up.

Trump Family Takes Over

Well, it is now clear that Donald Trump has finally decided to seek the advice of key political analysts and retool his campaign. He got rid of his campaign manager, the notorious Corey Lewandowski who had gained fame pushing around female correspondents. So, who did Donald take advice from in seeking new blood in his campaign? Naturally, another Trump! His daughter Ivanka and her husband are now the key political experts.

Since we believe that Donald needs some assistance, what else can we do, but offer our own advice.

Chris Christie has an approval rating in New Jersey of about 27%. Why not consult him?

The Bush family is sulking, since you want to consult family members, why not ask the elder Bush for some help?

I believe the NRA is the best source of new ideas to get your campaign on the road to success.

LeBron James just made Cleveland a happy place, perhaps, he can save you.

You know, Donald, you constantly do ISIS many favors, perhaps, they can do one for  you with some advice.

Rudy Giuliani once saved America after 9/11, he can easily match you with bullshit, only he has new bullshit.

Then again there are always the Kardashians.

Interesting Headlines From World Press

In our daily reading of newspapers from throughout the world it is common to encounter some interesting headlines. We offer a sample of what we encountered yesterday:

“School Hunting For Unicorns”

Have they checked with Republican Party headquarters?

“Ivory Queen In Jail Over 700 Tusks”

Tisk, tisk, I guess an elephant stamped its feet on someone.

“Free AR-15 With Purchase of Car”

Now,the driver can blast away with car and gun!

“Patients Try Older Drugs First”

Sounds like another attack on Obamacare.

“Ban Foreign Bananas”

See, Donald told you, elect him and there will be jobs gathering bananas!

Oh For One More Supreme Court Judge!

Yes, the United States of America is a divided nation and no where else does this division play out but in the US Supreme Court. The state of Connecticut, for some reason, was able to pass  a law that restricted  the purchase of automatic assault rifles and large capacity magazines. Let me get this straight:

Connecticut is among the original colonies that revolted against England.

As everyone knows the American colonists were armed with AR-15 automatic rapid firing assault rifles.

That is why the 2nd Amendment clearly says anyone can have an assault rifle, even babies in the crib.

So, how the hell did this Socialist state get away from preventing its residents from protecting their wives and daughters against rape from Islamic terrorists?

Anyway, the Court refused to say yes, or no. So, the law stands for now. Of course, if the NRA is successful in getting Trump elected,there goes the end of that law!

John Oliver On Brexit

There are times when John Oliver sort of rants a bit too much,and there are times when his rants are right on target and quite humorous. He decided total on his native England which is in the midst of an election this week to determine if the UK will remain in the EU.

“Here is how I feel about the EU, it is a complicated, bureaucratic, ambitious,  overbearing, inspirational and constantly ambitious  institution, and Britain would be absolutely crazy to leave it., because, it it stays, it can reap the benefits   while still doing dick about everything.  And that is the British way.”

Who else can reduce a complex issue to a long sentence and get everything right11

Donald Confronts ISIS!

It was just a matter of time before Donald Trump decided to confront ISIS on their home territory. Naturally, Donald came prepared with a gun in his holster and one placed on his knee. So, here is what happened at the famous meeting between Donald two gun Trump and ISIS.

Abu: So glad to have you join this conclave. I trust you know that your words of hate and wisdom send thousands to our flag.

Donald: Wait a second. Wait a damned second. I am ready to  take you guys on one person at a time or the whole pack of you. So, has anyone got a deck of cards. How about a game of 21, or if that is not what you like, how about poker. Double or nothing after each hand.

Abu: Wait a second. You keep on telling Americans how you will wipe us all out in some sort of shoot-out. Did you really mean, cards at twenty paces?

Donald: Look you  guys, all kidding aside, without you  characters blasting away, how the hell can I win this damn election? I need you guys, I really need you terrorists. For God’s sake, I mean the Jesus God, who the fuck would listen oa  word I say without my ISIS buddies?

Abu: Come to think about it Donald, that makes sense. You hate Obama, we hate Obama,you hate Crooked Hillary, we hate the bitch. You want to carpet bomb  us, we want you to carpet bomb us, each carpet bombed gets us a few thousand more recruits.

Donald: OK guys, here if the deal. When I deal, it’s a great Deal. You sort of blow yourselves up during the last weeks of October, maybe get rid of a school with kids, God, that would be a fantastic deal –dead kids and parents upset and me wondering if Obama knew about the bombing. I’ll tell you what, for each bombing a weekend at any Trump hotel with $1,000 thrown in for the girls and some betting. Just make certain the girls are illegal Mexicans so I can blast away at ISIS and crazy Mexicans in the same speech.

Abu: You’re on. Donald,so glad to meet an American who shares our values–anything for a buck!
