Whatever Happened To Technology?

I have now heard a few dozen debates in which Republicans promise to bring back ‘millions of high paying jobs” from China or Mexico. Donald is going raise tariffs on Chinese imports and force American businessmen to bring back those wonderful textile and factory jobs. Of course, since unions have lost power what exactly will be the pay of those who work in American textile or manufacturing jobs? OH, I forgot that Republicans believe raising the minimum wage will result in the loss of “millions of jobs.”

I have yet to hear a single Republican mention the loss of jobs due to technology. Within ten years we will have the arrival of automobiles driven by machines rather than people. NO truck drivers, no taxi drivers, no deliverymen, etc.. Donald, machines do NOT receive wages. So, how will you create ‘millions of jobs” for those displaced by driverless cars? The robotization of work is the most powerful force leading to the loss of “millions of high paying jobs.”

OH, I forgot,under President Trump those working picking fruit or collecting garbage will have “millions of high paying jobs!!”

All Quiet On Syrian Front?

Believe it or not but we have now witnessed two entire days without massive fighting in Syria. I realize this sudden interlude is bothering Republican military heroes such as Donald Trump or Ted Cruz who want to carpet bomb someone to prove they understand how to win wars against terrorists. However, for the most part, rebels against Assad are enjoying the first quiet time in years. OK, so the cease fire agreement is not 100% satisfactory since Russia retains the right to bomb “terrorists.”

The real question is whether this strange interlude could result in something that is long term in Syria. So, what are the options for American leaders?

1. They must accept the reality that for the immediate future, there will be a President Assad in Syria.

2. They must accept the reality there will be areas set aside for various rebel groups.

3. The US must realize that Russian is now a power in the Middle East.

Any good news in sight?

1. It is now time for the US to work with Iran in order to get the Russians out of the Middle East. Sorry, Republicans, but Iran is the only hope right now to create some sort of quiet time.

2. It is time for Israel to shut up about the “Iranian menace.”

3. The people of Syria need PEACE AND QUIET so they will cease heading for Europe.

Such is reality. A concept that is foreign to the minds of those seeking to become president of the United States.

The Myth Of Evolution

For over a hundred years most intelligent humans on this planet have accepted the concept of evolution. Of course, there are always members of the Republican party who insist this planet began about 12,000 years ago when God, Himself, took out a week from his busy schedule around the universe to populate the planet. As I recall, there were Adam and Eve and then their sons, Cain and Abel. To prove what a wondrous God we have, two males were able to impregnate one of them and out came babies.

After watching the clowns cavort and shout and insult one another, it is damn clear this so called idea about, “evolution” makes absolutely no sense. Who in their right mind actually believes that Donald Trump is smarter than any gorilla in the jungle?? The modern Republican party is committed to the proposition that stupidity and ignorance are the goals  of the intelligent person. Let’s come to grip with reality– the Zik mosquito is really stinging each and every American with a stupidity bug.

And, the clowns danced and insulted on and on…

Solve Syrian And Border Issues!

I understand that Republicans like Donald Trump want to secure our border and  send Hispanics back to where they came from. This blog offers a perfect solution to the Syrian refugee and ensuring that our borders are safe from terrorists.

1. Deport the entire 12,000,000 Hispanics who presently are in OUR country and let them be nannies and fruit gatherers and garbage collectors back in Mexico.

2. Import 12,000,000 Syrian refugees who will be happy to work for $8 an hour regardless of which type of work is desired.

3. Place Syrian refugees in special apartment houses which will be guarded 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by Black Lives Matter folks. Sorry, Hispanics do not fit under the Black Lives Matter umbrella.

4. Hire Syrians to guard any and all Trump buildings– let’s make certain our next President is not harmed.

5. Why waste a lot of money building a high wall. Just place radioactive dust along our border with Mexico.

6. Or, we could negotiate a deal with Kim Jong-un whereby we send Hispanics to North Korea and they send their atomic bomb experts to America in order to teach us how to build bigger and better atomic bombs.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I have absolutely no idea as to what is or are the Kardashians.

Has anyone checked with Dick Cheney as to whether he wants to seek the presidency?

It is time for baseball and every fan has hopes and dreams of their team wining something.

I simply never thought I would ever have to listen to  another George Bush speech, ah, these are strange times.

Gee, a day went by without a story as to how some Hispanic rapists were raping away.

America needs a time out from shouts of anger and hate by those seeking to become president.

Marco Rubio can not utter a sentence in the English language without using the word, Benghazi.

Then again, Ben Carson can not express a single intelligent thought in the English language.

Red Carpet To Poor?

As you recall, General Sisi of Egypt is one of the good guys in the Middle East. He took over from General Mubarak who took over from General Sadat who took over from General Nasser who took over from General Naguib. In other words, for the past seventy years one general or another has been running the nation of Egypt. The result is obvious, an unemployment rate of over 40% and lots of bad radical guys dying to die for their cause. Yes, Egypt did participate in the Arab spring, and that lasted about one year until another general took charge who sent  the prior general into a nice retirement.

General Sisi decided to visit some poor people. Naturally, being a GENERAL meant he had to have a Red Carpet treatment. When an Egyptian general wants a red carpet treatment he MEANS red carpet. So, a 2.5 mile red carpet was laid in order to allow him to be in contact with poor folks. I guess he figured if poor people saw a red carpet it would make their lives happier.

0NE PERCENT OWN IT ALL!

There are moments after seeing the latest figures which indicate that one percent of people in the world possess more than 50% of the rest of the world that I wonder what was life like back in the days  of Cro-Magnon folk. Did one family own more than the entire group? When an animal was killed, did one family eat nine-tenths of the animal while the rest were OK getting what was left? Did one family live in this really great stone house while the  others made do with some tents?

I am confused how in the course of human history we evolved into a system in which one percent sort of runs the show and consumes more than the other 99%.  So, it sort of is logical that this system began thousands of years ago before we civilized modern folk arrived on the scene. Or, are you telling me the Cro-magnons and Neanderthals were more emotionally evolved than modern humans?

Then again, did the best hunter sort of get control of the slain animals and decided who got what and who did not unless they did his bidding? Anyway, I’m sort of confused how we got into this weird modern situation in which one percent own so much. Got me!

Then again, what was the Wall Street equivalent for my  ancestors back then?

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!

So, do we deport the well known Canadian, Ted Cruz?

Perhaps it is time to build a wall on the border with Canada to prevent immigrants from entering our nation?

Don’t mess with the Donald Man by getting a lot of votes. He will retaliate.

An entire week went by without a single comment from that profound thinker, Ben Carson.

Barack Obama committed a heinous crime, he cried in public!

I was never more shocked when two major football games were played on New Year’s eve. The result now shows few watched those games.

Is Carly Fiorina still alive?

 

 

 

Muslim Jerks

It was New Year’s eve and thousands were celebrating in the streets of Cologne and Hamburg in Germany when groups of men from Muslim countries in the Middle East decided to surround women and grope and steal their wallets of cell phones and even assault them in public. It is clear these offensive males were from Middle Eastern countries and they were engaged in public criminal acts. The result is damage to the prospects for refuge in Germany.

Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has stood solidly with the rights of refugees is shocked and now notes there might be a conflict between the “coexistence of cultures.” The pressure has now risen on her to take action. Those who suffer will be refugees seeking safety from the horror of war. Unfortunately, they must now confront the horror of their sons who decided to endanger the lives of Muslim refugees.
