What About Exports?

I listen carefully to the speeches of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Both are furious at the loss of “millions of high paying jobs to China.” Their assumption is the reason for decline of certain factory jobs is because business is taking their production to Asia, particularly, the evil China. Just think, we now produce clothes, shoes, assembly of computers and other such “high paying jobs” elsewhere but in America. For some reason, neither Sanders nor Trump ever mention the word, EXPORT.

In June this year, the United States EXPORTED $183 billion in goods to other nations. We IMPORTED, $227 billion from other countries. To simplify, if we ended import of goods from overseas, we might add about 4,000,000 jobs. Of course, since other nations would raise tariffs on our  goods, we might lose 3,000,000 jobs.

Shouting and screaming to rip up  trade deals gets the applause of millions. Unfortunately, if we do as Trump and Sanders urge, there might be millions of jobs lost by Americans. And,many of them would be high paying jobs!

Cover Up! Or, Don’t!

I  was born in 1930 at a time when women still wore one piece bathing suits. Most regarded themselves as more liberal, more daring, more sexy than women in earlier years who really covered their entire body. Then, came the  joyous 1940s when this perverted little boy gaze with wonder and awe at the new thing–bikini bathing suits. Oh,my God, we now could really see that women had bulging breasts! What a joy going to Coney Island now became. But, in all honesty, most American women retained the full body swim suit for the coming twenty years.

France is now in turmoil over the burkina. It is a swim suit for women that covers up their body,just as we used to do in America. According to French Prime Minister  the burkinis “are not compatible with the values of France.” Let me get this straight: France is worried to death about death from terrorists, but its prime minister is most worried about how Muslim women dress in the water! Which values require wearing a bikini?

Frankly, the only “value” pertaining to a bikini is sex crazed teen boys like I used to be! Take one guess what we did in the water while gazing at women in a bikini?

P.S. I can assure the prime minister, we would never have had sexual thoughts when gazing at Muslim women wearing a burkini.

Middle Eastern Silliness

There are moments when Middle Eastern conflicts reach the level of how children behave in life. There was a judo match between a Jewish Israeli and a Muslim Egyptian.  Islam El Shelby got beat by the Jew Or Sasson,and the norm in judo is for the two combatants to bow to one another and shake hands. But,  the Egyptian has high moral and religious views so he refused to shake the his opponent’s hand. There is no question this behavior demonstrates the ultimate ridiculous aspects of Middle Eastern conflict.

The Olympic Committee made clear, “the Egyptian’s conduct was contrary to   the rules of fair play, and against the spirit of friendship embodied in Olympic values.” So, they told him to get the hell out of Brazil and take his childish behavior back to the other kids back in Egypt. When will those in the Middle East reach the level of children aged twelve?

Of course, then again we have a presidential election here in America where the biggest child of all is Donald Trump.

Good lord! Donald actually read from a script!

Someone in the Trump camp should make Donald end those facial expressions, hardly presidential.

I assume Ted Cruz is delighted with the current presidential campaign.

For Republicans, when desiring to frighten Americans, they just shout: LAW AND ORDER!

Reality for the world, as ISIS collapses in the Middle East, it is left with the need to carry out attacks in cities of the Western world.

Is Mike Pence in this election, never hear from him.

I bet John McCain prays for the defeat of Donald Trump.

I wonder why Don Rumsfeld is  silent about his party’s nominee?

Short sure is great when engaged in gymnastics.

I spend my nights thinking about which Cabinet position, Ivanka will fill.

If only Hillary would just say, “I was wrong,” the topic of emails would disappear.

These days Mitt Romney comes across a great statesman.

God, would I welcome one HONEST comment from Paul Ryan!

John Boehner sleeps peacefully these nights.

It apparently is OK for men to hug and kiss in the Olympics.

It’s Just Oklahoma

Please do not get upset when you discover a story about Oklahoma. It is a flat place in America in which most folks believe the Earth is flat and if you go too far then you just fall over the edge. However, Oklahoma does lead the nation in  having the lowest salaries for teachers. Th other day there was a demonstration in the Oklahoma legislature when a few of the guys wanted to impeach President Obama. Fortunately, someone in the legislature realized a State legislature cannot impeach a President. The good news is this has been made known to high school Social Studies teachers.

Naturally, this being Oklahoma, the legislature wants to  pass a law which would allow any  student to claim their religious freedom to only piss with those who were born either male or female. Of course, the State legislature passed a bill that would make any doctor a criminal if he performed an abortion. For some reason, Governor Mary Fallin vetoed the bill. I guess she was born in another state.

Donald On Guns–This Time

As you recall or don’t recall, the fighting red headed man from New York had an opportunity to display his gun toting ability during the Vietnam war, but he had more important things to do -like making money. Anyway, Donald is now the fighting hero of the NRA because he not only wants guns in the hands of every single American, but he sure wants them in schools. Of course, at times, when he discuses any topic his fast moving mind sort of goes in several directions.

“I don’t want to have guns in the classrooms, although in some cases teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly. The problem with gun free zones is like offering candy  to bad people. They have gun free zones and they go in them with guns blazing.

Donald, some facts: Public Schools are the safest place for children, particularly, those living in urban poverty areas. THERE HAS NOT BEEN A SINGLE MASS SHOOTING IN AN URBAN SCHOOL DURING THE ENTIRE 20TH CENTURY! Every mass  shooting has occurred in middle class white neighborhoods!

A Plane Crashed

This is definitely what we know for certain: An Egyptian plane crashed shortly before reaching the African mainland. So, now allow the “experts” to sort out what happened:

Donald Trump: ISIS is blowing up planes in the Middle East and Obama is in Vietnam!

Ted Cruz: If I was the one running for President, no ISIS would dare challenging a two pistol God fearing Texan who wore boots!

Bernie Sanders: You will note that not a single Wall Street banker was on the plane? Why?

Jeb Bush: Oh, for God’s sake, just leave me alone, plane, shmane, who cares anymore?

Megyn Kelly: I can confirm from very authoritative sources that Donald Trump had nothing to do with this plane crash. Oh, he DOES have such darling red hair!

Ben Carson: I would be more than willing to provide my opinion if you would just purchase some books of mine.

The Egyptian government: Hell, don’t look at us! We just fly the planes. No one can give a 100% guarantee that  a plane will land all the time.

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.

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?
