A Nation Fearing Fear

I was born in the great Depression when one out of four people lacked a job. It was a time before Social Security, before unemployment insurance, before minimum wage laws and before the government provided assistance to children. I was a teen during World War II when in 1942 the Japanese navy had nine aircraft carriers and we had three. I lived when Germany had an army of eight million and they were the first to develop guided missiles and jet planes.

But, for some strange reason we did not have political leaders who nonstop warned us of dire things to occur. According to Republicans, America is “facing the worst threat to its survival in history.” ISIS has about sixty thousand fighters,  no planes, no aircraft carriers, no artillery, no guided missiles and certainly, no atomic bombs.

What has become of the American people who fought a terrible civil war and its leaders were convinced of victory? FACTS: Since 9/11  fewer than 200 Americans have been killed in this nation. Oh, over 300,000 have been killed by guns wielded by native born Christian Americans.

As President Franklin Roosevelt calmly told us: “You have nothing to fear but unreasonable fear.” There is NO threat to America –other than the one posed b God-fearing Christians who want to kill and kill–themselves!

Ted Cruz, Poor Man’s Donald Trump

It is now quite clear that while Ted Cruz was at Harvard  he spent considerable time in the library reading books about war and bombing an so on. As his poll numbers rise, Ted is moving closer and closer to center stage and he hopes one day  to be right next to the Donald man. At this point he is reduced to verbal battles with fellow Cuban, Marco Rubio. This leads to fantastic one liners:

1. Marco, you know that is not true.

2. There you go again, Marco not telling the truth.

When Ted is not dazzling the world with his erudite Harvard education, Ted explains how to defeat ISIS

1. Carpet bomb the hell out of ISIS.

2. When asked if this might lead to civilian deaths, General Cruz  noted: Only carpet bomb areas where there are terrorists and don’t  bomb civilians.

My hunch is that Ted never actually read a book about war. If he studied WWII the brilliant mind would have learned that during the day 1000 US bombers hit German cities and at night, 1000 British bombers blasted away. Without Russian, British and American  boots on the ground Germany would still be fighting.

Jeb Jabs Donald

Jeb Bush came out fighting for the first time and he went after the great and wonderful Donald Trump.

“Donald, I have a plan, and the only thing you possess is a lot of hot air. Come on man, you want to prevent Muslim from entering the country? Really. So, the head of Egypt, the King of Jordan, and God knows who else can’t come here. I got a plan. Remember,what my dad did during the Gulf War? Oh, I  forgot, you never even heard of the Gulf War. But, dad organized a coalition of Arab nations and they took out Saddam.

Think about it Donald, dad took out Saddam, and  my brother followed up and he took out Saddam. What does this mean? I am the only candidate with  family background of taking out terrorist leaders. OK,so there were a few minor problems with taking out Saddam. Now, if the black dude had kept thousands of American soldiers in Iraq my brother’s brilliant take out of Saddam would have been successful.

Donald, it is always Obama, HE is the one who messed up  the Middle East. And,  if you get power the Middle East would become even messier than it is under Obama.”

These days political leaders so enjoy pretending they are the tough sheriff in town.

Me thinks Ben Carson has shot his wad.

Me thinks Mike Huckabee is  heading back to talk  shows and selling his books.

Say, is Carly still in this race? She has become rather quiet.

Barack Obama should spend time reading and learning from American history.

I can not wait until next year at the Republican convention-what a show awaits the American people!

Oh well, Chris Christie is back in the lineup, all 300 pounds of his bullshit.

Donald is worried about secret business meetings, for God’s sake, that is what he has been involved in throughout his life!

Ben Carson threatens to run as an independent–by November he would be lucky to have one million followers.

Ted Cruz is God’s gift to Ted Cruz.

How about Cruz and Rubio as a ticket- an Hispanic immigrant’s delight!

A drone just killed another terrorist, I assume this ends terrorism.

Barack Obama has never learned that talking from the Oval office adds to the importance of what is said.

The reason bad folks carry guns is because the good folks carry guns.

The 25% Modern Dilemma

The world is currently living in the 21st century, but in nation after nation there remains a solid 25% of people who prefer the good old days of nineteenth century living. Here in America, a solid 25% do not believe in climate change,they do not believe in “science” which is regarded as some sort of “liberal”plot to destroy the nation, and they DO believe our President was born in Kenya and is a Muslim.

Unfortunately, this 25% is found in France where the National Front, a right wing party  led by Marine Le Pen, won 28% of the vote, but was unable to gain control over any region. This same 25% is in England, in Turkey, in India, and every nation of the modern world. They simply can not adjust to life in the modern world. We in America will be voting in November, the real question is whether or not we elect one of the 25% as our next president.

I sort of like John Kasich, there are moments of sanity in the man.

Poor Ben Carson is getting ready to sell his books and get over this nonsense of becoming a President.

Jeb Bush will go down in history as a footnote.

Just remember, Republicans, Dick Cheney is still eligible to run for president.

Mystery of life, why does President Obama fear talking from the Oval Office?

Then again, why did he refuse to explain anything to Americans?

Ted Cruz as President would result in mass exodus of people to Canada–his original homeland.

It is now obvious that Trump has found a model in Adolf Hitler, just say something hateful.

I wonder if ISIS can figure out when asked if they are Muslims, just say NO!

There are moments when I want to become a Canadian citizen.

Donald Trump is not the problem, the problem is those who adore him.

Funny, these days I never hear anything from Jeb Bush.

Then again, I never hear anything from George Bush.

Oh well, there is always Mitt Romney to become the candidate of the people.

Blame It On Muslims!

President Obama in his speech about Muslim extremists called upon American Muslims to “root out extremists” among those who attend mosques.  I was in the US Army in 1951 when McCarthyism was a dominant force in society. Senator McCarthy charged thousands with being “fellow travelers” aiding Communist Soviet Union. I was constantly asked by fellow soldiers, “why do Jews allow so many Communists in their religion?” The assumption was that since noted spies, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were Jews somehow this meant Jews had some sort of responsibility if any Jew became a Muslim.

The President was absolutely wrong in challenging Muslims to take responsibility for a Muslim who winds up as a terrorist. Each individual is responsible for his or her actions, they are not responsible for other members of their families or what neighbors do or what someone of their religion does. Reality: I have NO power to alter behavior of strangers who happen to also be Jewish.

Donald Trump told an audience that he has ‘friends’ who are Muslim.

Donald continues referring to ‘stupid people.’ I wonder if that is a reference for the stupid people who invaded Iraq and created the current problems.

We don’t hear much these days from silent Ben Carson–good or bad news?

Americans so enjoy fearing non-threats.

Modern Americans have never had to fear a real enemy such as Nazi Germany or the Japanese empire.

Barack Obama has never grasped the importance of a President to educate Americans.

A 5% unemployment rate, banks solid once again, and guess who is to blame for this horrible situation?
