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.

If anyone could figure out who are the good guys in Syria give them the Nobel Peace Prize.

Its Monday, who now is leaving the Republican presidential race?

Marco Rubio so loves to pretend he is a poor boy. This is one poor boy with millionaire allies.

I guess Ben Carson can go back to carving up bodies.

Donald figures attacking Bill Clinton will get him votes, dream on.

Ted Cruz is the poor man’s Senator Joseph McCarthy.

Is Carly Fiorina still running for something?

Terrorist Government Beheads!

The American government  for years has been fighting a war against Muslim terrorists. Among our key allies in this struggle is none other than the nation which has done more than any other group in the world to arm, assist, and defend terrorists–none other than our  wonderful friend, Saudi Arabia. A few days ago the Saudi government murdered 46 people using methods such  as hanging, cutting off heads and swords.

Among the dead is Sheikh Nimr al Nimr whose crime was to preach a form of fundamentalist Islam. Ironically, the nation which not only preaches this form of fundamentalism, but funds Islamic terrorists and teaches  hatred of the United States and other western powers is –none other than Saudi Arabia. These deaths have aroused anger throughout the Middle East and we can expect some form of terrorism to be the result. Hopefully, if there is terrorism, hopefully, why not at the source of this hatred?

Watch Them Tomatoes!

There are moments when one wonders how those claiming to be religious leaders discover arcane and unbelievable ideas concerning God, religion, and daily life.  A group of Salafi Muslim clerics in Egypt have raised a new theological issue that simply makes me alter my daily life.  These clerics note that if one “cuts in half a tomato the half part displays a shape that resembles a cross. Eating tomatoes is forbidden  because they are Christian. The tomato praises the cross instead of Allah.”

To be fair to the  Popular Egyptian Islamic Association, there is no doubt hat Mohammed never saw a tomato since this fruit came from the Western Hemisphere in the 1500s. OK, you guys are right on one point, the tomato definitely was a Christian product that came to America in order to ensure we had pizza.

I just can’t wait until Donald Trump gets into this issue!

Israel Takes High Moral Ground

The state of Israel has deliberately taken land away from Palestinians,it has created a apartheid society in which if you are Jewish, you get to the head of the line, and if you are Palestinian, then  get behind. The West Bank was designated by the United Nations in 1948 as land set aside for Palestinians. It is not surprising that many nations in the world regard West Bank settlers as in violation of international law.  Brazil has made clear that it would not accept  Dani Dayan as the Ambassador from Israel because he is a prominent West Bank settler. The Israel government is upset and insists that he be appointed or else they will not regard Brazil as an important diplomatic site.

Let me see:

1. The Israel Ambassador to the US met secretly with Republicans in Congress to organize anti-Obama actions. That violates diplomatic behavior.

2. The Prime Minister of Israel accepted an invitation from Congressional Republicans  and campaigned for their views in his speech to Congress.

3. The Israel government has consistently spread false information about the President of the USA.

And, Israel is now angry because Brazil will not allow an Israeli to be the ambassador to THEIR nation!
