Plot To Take Over Texas!

During the past month thousands of Texans have gathered arms and ammunition in order to stand ready to protect their state against a Federal government take over of the loyal, God-fearing and Gun-loving folk of Texas. An Army military exercise, Jade Helm 15 has aroused the suspicions of the Texas government. The Governor and thousands of Texans know this is no “military exercise.” It is simply a cover for another Obama plot to destroy all we hold dear in our beloved land. Examine the facts and judge for yourself.

1. Walmart stores closed as part of the plan to store weapons for the US Army.

2. The Army was placing barbed wire to hold those arrested when Obamatakeover occurred.

3. Why was this exercise being conducted in a Red State? How come,not in a Blue state?

4. Many are wondering if this exercise was coordinated by ISIS. At this moment, ISIS forces are on the attack. Coincidence??

5. Is there a connection between the decision of former Governor Rick Perry to seek the Republican nomination and this so-callled military exercise? Was the special prison being built designed to hold Rick Perry?

If America elects a Muslim from Africa, is there any wonder that loyal Americans are frightened of the government??

Iran Deal Or No Deal

One of America’s leading authorities on foreign policy has weighed in on the recent deal with Iran,and given his past ability to grasp the subtle aspects of conducting negotiations with other nations, it is time for President Obama to reflect on what he claims to have accomplished. Former Governor Rick Perry’s comments should make Obama pause and reflect for a moment. The man who sort of got confused as to which departments are in the Cabinet is dead sure that Obama made a terrible mistake. “What I saw out of the President today, and this is of great consternation to me, I saw a very naive man who does not know how the world works, who cannot put the dots together.”

President Obama was working with five other important nations who, I assume, have some grasp as to how the world works. Frankly, I doubt if Perry could even locate Iran on the map. His comment is that of just about every man or woman seeking the Republican nomination. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if one of them could actually offer an ALTERNATIVE PLAN! Oops, I forgot, Donald Trump wants to lead soldiers into battle.

The Art Of Political Selling

There is one pattern that has existed throughout the Obama administration, and that is his inept political ability to sell a good idea. Obama always behaves like a college professor who lectures and then assumes his “students” understand what was presented. Compared to Theodore or Franklin Roosevelt or John Kennedy or Abe Lincoln, Obama has completely failed to SELL his ideas. Sorry Barack, but a great president is a great salesperson.

1. Lincoln was a master of presenting complex ideas along with a joke or a demand that Americans display their greatness as people.

2. John Kennedy on day one of his presidency told the American people “what can you do for America?”

3. In 1940, England faced Nazi Germany alone and had run out of guns and ammunition. Most Americans did not want to go to war. So, in one of his fireside chats with Americans, Franklin Roosevelt used this metaphor: “if your neighbor’s house catches fire, and he comes to you asking to borrow a fire hose, surely, you would give him one. We are going to lend England destroyers and rifles and other equipment.” And, so England got military supplies that enabled it to continue fighting Germany. I have never heard a single metaphor from Obama that enables people to grasp an issue.

4. One night after America was at war, Franklin Roosevelt asked the American people to listen to him as he reviewed where American soldiers were fighting. By late evening, one out of two Americans had listened and followed his analysis of where fighting was going on. How many Americans today even know where Syria or Iraq are? Obama has never discussed these areas of fighting with Americans following with a map.

5. To this day I am shocked that we Americans never received an explanation about Obamacare from the government.

If Obama wants to sell this accord with Iran, he must become a president who talks WITH AMERICANS!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Scott Walker boasts of “taking on the unions.” People are in unions. Figure out your meaning.

$7.25 cents an hour for Walker’s enemy.

Donald Trump’s great sorrow is not being made a general to lead men into battle.

Some honor life, some death.

I often wonder at the last thoughts of those blowing self up.

I was raised in a world in which the goal was making it easy for people to vote.

Republicans now have enough candidates to form two football teams, let the game proceed.

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?

Donald Takes On Mexican Drug Lords

I just received a missive from a friend of mine who heads a large Mexican drug cartel and he is very worried. He was checking with me whether I knew of anyway to get to Donald Trump and seek to head off his anger. He informed me that Mexican drug lords, at this very minute, are meeting at a secret location in the mountains of their land. They are prepared to send an envoy to the headquarters Donald Trump and beg his forgiveness. According to Donald he received a threat from Mexican drug lord big honcho Joaquin “El Chapo”Guzman that was a threat to his life.

“Quit screwing with sand I’m going to make you eat your shit.” Donald has contacted the FBI and asked for their assistance. This is very surprising to me. I thought Donald was the one who gave aid to the FBI! Donald, just go to Mexico, remember you told us last week the people of Mexico love you. They will rally around your flag and march with you to end drug lords!

Voting Rights For The Wealthy

I realize that Republicans are always insisting this action or that action was required because they did not wish to do anything that went against our Founding Fathers. I brief review of American history would enable Republicans who continually set one barrier after another in the way of someone who wants to vote that the entire history of America from 1789 until 1965 was the struggle to ensure that ALL Americans whether they poor people, landless people, white or black skinned people or whether they were females had the right to vote. During the past few years Republican legislatures and governors have passed one restriction after another in the way of those seeking to vote.

A court case has now hit North Carolina which charges that he has pushed through legislation that interferes with the right to vote. I assume he will argue that goal is to prevent voter fraud. In the past presidential election there were fewer than TWENTY CASES OF VOTER FRAUD! I have been voting since 1952 in the US Army, the state of New York, and the state of Missouri without anyone demanding voter ID from me. They just checked off my name on a list. Perhaps, we have to return to the good old days of Tammany Hall when real politicians controlled voting. At least their goal was to TURN OUT THE VOTE–not prevent it!

Oh The Glory Of God!

These days the easiest way to explain away any act of murder is simply to say: “This is for the glory of God!” ISIS just blew up a parked car in front of the Italian consulate in Cairo for the glory of God. ISIS blows up statues that have been around for a few thousand years for the glory of God. People get their heads chopped off for the glory of God. Kill a few kids today who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and simply note this was for the glory of God.

I guess in the future when someone desires to rob a bank, all they have to shout at the teller, “this is for the glory of God, not for me.” I assume this means God has run out of cash and needs it right now. I wonder if God goes around blowing up planets for the glory of God??

The Donald Factor

After almost eight years of demonizing Barack Obama and working hard to prevent solutions to problems confronting America, the Republican party is now enduring the consequences of fostering hate and hate in the land. The leading hate character is one, Donald Trump, and he has Republican by the balls. Just dare make a critical remark about his nonsensical remarks and the Donald man will come down hard on you. Make a comment that addresses issues of immigration reform, and the Donald man will shout on Fox News that you support rapists and drug lords. He will NOT shut up and he will go after any Republican who dares challenge his message of hate.

In reality, Donald Trump was the logical outcome of years of hate, of years refusing to address issues, and certainly, years of refusing to develop a program that enabled illegal immigrants and their children to remain in America.

Dung Of The Devil!

There is good news for Catholics, and there is bad news for Catholic Republicans seeking the nomination for President. Pope Francis came out swinging against unbridled capitalism which he termed to be the “dung of the devil.” He made clear that Catholics cannot be only concerned with the “mentality of profit at any price.” He also connected the attitudes of modern capitalists as reflecting a “new colonialism” which ignores the rights of those who labor for basic needs. Workers have “sacred rights of labor, lodging and land.”

One knows that Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum and Jeb Bush, who are Catholics, will challenge the right of unbridled capitalism on the ground that gathering wealth in the long run benefits those who are poor. OH, what can these Catholics make of the Pope Francis claim that “Mother Earth” must be respected. I don’t think our coal companies will be pleased with the argument our Mother Earth should not be abused, anymore than poor people should be.

JebBushmonics

There are rumors that Jeb Bush is the more intelligent of the Bush family members. He has made a lot of money, he was a governor of the state of Florida, and according to him, any jobs obtained by anyone in that state during his tenure in office was a direct result of his executive actions. He is back in politics, after deciding to take a break from making lots of dough. After all, being the son of a president sort of helps one in getting to know the right people who ensure that you will wind up with lots of dough.

Anyway, Jeb has an economic plan that will lead to a 4% growth in job productivity. It is a simple idea. “People need to work longer hours, and through the productivity gain, make more income for their families.” So, I work more and get more, and so does the boss. I do understand that if I begin working 60 hours a week instead of forty, the boss makes more money. And, yes, productivity rises.
