The Body Part Of Texas Are Upon You

There is a famous song known to all inhabitants of Texas, it begins with the line, “The eyes of Texas are upon you.” But, these days students at the University of Texas have changed the meaning of the song. Most students  and faculty members are furious with a new Texas  law that allows any student to enter a classroom, the lunchroom, the office of a professor, the library, heck the student dorm armed to the teeth. As a former college professor, the thought that an angry student upset at his grade could enter my office armed with a gun borders on madness.

University of Texas students decided to fight back. They now carry a toy penis and shout: “Cock But Not Glocks.” They have been informed that carrying a toy penis is not permitted. As students now argue: “We have crazy laws here but this is  far too crazy, that anyone can’t bring a diko, but you can buy a gun.”

All I can say is: “Cock And Load”

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If stupidity was a crime, requiring deportation, this country finally would get rid of its Republicans.

Donald has “plans,” and Hillary has emails. Which of these two is the more boring story?

I must confess that Ryan Lochte does look sincere. However, he reminds me of the kid who mom found in the cookie jar.

How come Sanders and Trump people always talk about IMPORTS but not a word about EXPORTS?

Ironically, the Clinton model was Donald Trump–make gobs of money rather than the Jimmy Carter model of engaging in service to others–without any thought of pay.

Not a word from Donald about the fantastic performance of our Olympic squad–they certainly made Americans feel Great.

How come Great Britain almost passed the one billion Chinese in medals?

Trump supporters on CNN always refer to him as “Mr. Trump” while Clinton supporters frequently say, “Hillary.”

Trump went to Baton Rouge to hand out packages, for some reason, he just never got the urge to go to Vietnam and hand out bullets.

If being a  coward was a virtue, Donald Tump, the draft dodger during the Vietnam war would be a Saint.

I wonder why Donald Trump never once has cited his German ancestry.

Bombs Away In Turkey

The government of President Recep Erdogan is committed to the goal of ending democracy in Turkey. The so-called ‘coup’ attempt by soldiers has been crushed. Of course,no  one knows if this ‘coup’ was organized by President Erdogan as part of a plan to destroy opposition parties. He used this “coup’ as the means of arresting over 50,000 people,including members of the military, judges, lawyers,teachers,professors,deans of colleges,journalists and he made certain to close any and all opposition journals.  These steps were taken in order to “save democracy” from evil opponents of the president.

At the same time as seeking to end democracy, President Erdogan has stepped up his campaign to destroy the rights of Kurds in Turkey. He prefers to fight Kurdish soldiers who oppose Syrian President Assad even though Erdogan wants to end the regime of Assad. Yesterday, a 13 year old boy walked into a marriage ceremony of Kurds and blew himself up. Most probably by ISIS. In one word, Turkey has become a MESS!

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!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

The circus just came to town and Donald Trump will be the ringmaster of it.

If ignorance of American history was a virtue, then Donald Trump would be a saint in heaven.

Frankly, I would hate to be halted by Brazilian police as our swimmers were the other night.

We Americans love our guns, and our guns love to kill us.

If there were no emails to discuss, what then would Trump discuss?

We Americans certainly are Great Again in the Olympics.

I doubt if Donald Trump could pass the basic immigrant test about American history.

I so wish that Hillary Clinton could speak in terms that lift hearts.

Republicans And US History

There is no doubt that Donald Trump is the most un-American candidate to ever run for the office of president. I suspect Donald has absolutely NO idea about the history of this nation. He made another of his tirades in which he demanded that immigrants to America pass a patriotism test. Of course, if Donald had to take a test regarding what is America, he would be sent back to his ancestor’s home in Germany.

Constitutional lawyer Lawrence Tribe termed Donald’s idea of inciting that immigrants prove they were loving Americans is unconstitutional. “The  proposal is deeply un-American, is probably unconstitutional, and would fail in Congress. I know for certain that Trump never heard of the Chinese Exclusion Act which prevented anyone from China to enter the US. This 1882 law was not changed until the 1940s. We Americans do NOT have political tests for immigrants. Of course, there are some minor problems– who writes the test, who grades the test, what if some liberals or conservatives disagree with this question or that question?

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.

Donald Is Upset–Again–Always

As you recall, for over one  year, Donald Trump was given extensive access to the media. He was allowed to say whatever came into his mind. Some estimate that he received nearly two billion dollars of free advertising. We all recall those endless “debates” that allowed him to display his prowess over the likes of Ben Carson and hapless Jeb Bush. So, now that polls indicate the Donald man is headed for a disaster, who is the cause of this oncoming calamity?

“I’m not running against Crooked Hillary, I’m running against the crooked media.” If the media was fair, then when Donald says something, they would report it and NOT engage in fact-checking. Donald does not believe the media should engage in partisan activities such as fact check what he says. After all, he does not read newspaper columns and then fact check what is written. So, why, does the Crooked media,the Biased media, continue to check  what he says!

Oh, Politfact reports that 95% of sites that checked Trump found 158 fact-checks of Trump were false. See, who told them to fact check? Donald did not!

I gather that Donald Trump will go to Russia where none can question the leader.

Police might consider the following rule, “think once before shooting.”

It must be difficult for Donald Trump to be losing to Crooked Hillary, what has happened to fairness in this world?

According to Republicans, freedom of the press means no one is allowed to write the “wrong things.”

Sorry, but I still fear the power of the gun will play a role in this election.

Each day another Republican finds religion.

I bet Jeb Bush is beside himself with joy. Finally, the bully is getting beaten.

Say, whatever happened to Marco Rubio, still seeking a bottle of water?

For some reason, Ben Carson no longer is in the news, I guess he is too busy selling his books.

The Danger of Words

Anyone who lived through the 1960s is quite familiar with the power of words to destroy. Within a ten year period, President John Kennedy was murdered, Malcolm X was killed, Martin Luther King was murdered, and two months later Robert Kennedy was murdered. Perhaps, perhaps, Donald Trump is oblivious to the danger of his words, I  am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. But, his nonstop shouting hate and anger toward Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton could easily be interpreted by some of the nut cases attending his rallies to blast away.

Yuval Rabin, son of former Israel Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin warned Americans of the danger of shouting hate. His father was killed by an Israel hater who was  urged on to hate by people like Benjamin Netanyahu. ‘Trumps’s  words are an incitement  to the type of political violence that touched me personally.” Netanyahu continued to claim Rabin was a “traitor” for seeking peace with Palestinians. One day, someone transformed those words into action. Will the same occur in America?
