NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

All leading candidates complain the system is rigged, but they are the leading candidates!

Gee nothing from Donald about Hispanic rapists the past few weeks. How come?

If Donald wants to shout about violent killers, just take on Chicago, the capital of murder.

Slowly, gradually, ISIS is retreating. That is the reason for attacks in Europe.

NO question–Ted Cruz could make a fortune in movies as the EVIL man.

Imagine a conversation between Jeb Bush and Ben Carson.

Anyway, now that baseball is here, each day there is a winner and a loser and no one complains the system is rigged.

Bernie — The True Believer

Bernie Sanders entered the 2016 primary season as a man determined to shake up the Democratic Party and make certain it once again was the party of those seeking  an America in which ALL those within society had an equal opportunity to succeed. Well, Bernie has succeeded far beyond  his wildest hopes. Hillary Clinton is now speaking as a true liberal and supporting efforts to reduce the power  of our beloved one  percent. But, something has happened to Bernie along this path of being a disrupting force, he now wants to become the candidate for president.

All those who are a True Believer at some point actually believe they alone know the truth. Bernie is now shifting from arguing for ideas to arguing that Hillary Clinton is “not qualified” to become president. In essence, he has joined the Republican smear campaign against Hillary Clinton. There is only ONE goal in this election–defeating Republicans. Bernie has forgotten what is the goal and gone from talking ideas to talking personal attacks. Such an approach only makes Democrats angry at Hillary Clinton rather than Republicans  who are the  target. If Sanders reduces a Democratic turnout the only ones who benefit are the one percent he hates.

Kasich Says Come To Me

Paul Ryan is not running and Donald Trump is running and John Kasich expects that at the conclusion of the race, he will be standing at the finish line with a cup to give himself. It is John’s expectation the only logical, possible person who can unite the Republican party is some guy from Ohio. “The path that exploits anger, encourages resentment, turns fear into hatred and divides people. This path drags us into a ditch and won’t make America great again.” Of course, he does share the conventional wisdom of all who initially stood on a  stage to argue how he or she could “make America great again.”

As governor of Ohio, the man who seeks to unite, has endeavored to destroy unions and make more difficult the path of higher wages for those who work. He has opposed legislation that would ensure equal pay for women. There is no evidence that he has endeavored to create job programs unemployed people seeking a good job. He has done absolutely nothing to increase minimum wages. In a nutshell, John Kasich places the interests of those with above the interests of those without.

One waits desperately for any program to actually create decent jobs. He has no ideas about the nature of education of r21st century youth. John Kasich simply wants to unite Republicans so they can all together serve the interests of wealthy people!

Discovery! Another Earth In The Universe!

I was gazing through my telescope the other day when I discovered an unusual sight, there is another  EARTH out there beyond the stars. I am sworn to secrecy so it is impossible for me to reveal how or why I got in contact with the other Earth folk. The only thing I can reveal is something about life on this other Earth.

1. Inhabitants of the planet all speak the same language.

2. The basic directive of this Earth is that all who inhabit the planet are entitled to basic food, shelter, health care and opportunities to develop their inherent abilities.

3. They have never heard of such a thing as WAR. The idea  of killing another human is simply beyond their imagination.

4. There are no ‘rich’ nor ‘poor’ since the concept that a few should possess huge amounts while others lack any is simply beyond their human conception.

5. The object of Education is assisting those who study to attain the highest level of their potential. There are no tests since why give them? Why place any restriction on the path to learning?

6. They informed me they are baffled by the idea of “nations’ or anyone believing that one group of humans are superior or inferior. They do understand that some humans posses superior abilities in thinking or sport or various aspects of human society. The goal of life is empowering each person to attain his or her complete capabilities.

They did inform me that our Earth is now under an embargo from other planets. Until we can attain a level of peace and love, who wants anything to do with us.

GOD Vs Jobs

There is no question the Republican party has identified the key issue in the upcoming presidential election. NO, it is not jobs, NO, it is not the border, NO ,it is not high paying wages, NO, it is not income inequality, NO, it is not terrorism. YES, it is our right to pee along with people who were born with the same sex and have lived as that person for their entire lives. States like North Carolina and Mississippi have passed laws to ensure that every public bathroom has a cop on duty to check your birth certificate. Of course, there is need to check the birth certificates of the Penis Cops.

Paypal has just canceled a $3.5 million project that would create new jobs. NISSAN which has thousands of jobs in Mississippi is warning they might cancel new jobs in the South. John Currne, owner of several restaurants in Oxford, Mississippi made it clear: “These assholes talk about gay men and women using the exact language they were using  in the 50s and60s  for segregationist purposes.” But, John, would you want your penis next to a person without one while pissing? We must protect, not only the unborn, but those who want to piss and shit in comfort with their God!

Has anyone considered building walls in the public restrooms?

Republican Alternatives To Be President

In an effort to assist our Republican friends we offer some suggestions as to who might be their candidate in the fall.

1. There is always Rudy Giuliani, a man who can out boast Donald any day in the year. After all, he single-handedly saved America after 9/11.

3. Why have Republicans forgotten Dick Cheney?  A man who was vice -president is eligible to run for president–that’s  lot more than Ted Cruz can say.

3. Rand Paul was the only guy on the debate stage who made any common sense. At least he is not full of hot air and he does have a biting send of humor.

4. Carly Fiorina is a natural born bitch who, unlike Donald Trump, only sent one business into an economic collapse.

5. Gee, I miss good old Rick Perry, at least he was born in Texas unlike the Cruz fellow.

7. Herman Cain has a few plus factors- he is black, he is a business man, he knows how to make pizza, he is a low key bull-shit artist, and he is dying for  another gig on the stage of life.

8. Then again, there is always Don Rumsfeld. OK, so he fucked up in Iraq,  a person is entitled to one more chance to fuck  up in the Middle East!

9.There is a guy named Mitt. He does not need any introduction.

10. Last but not least is the quiet black guy who may not know how to cut up people in a debate, but he sure knows how to cut up people.

“Right To Work” Aint!

Many years ago Republicans and their slave masters–business men invented a scam that continues to be used in order to depress wages and working conditions. It is the infamous “Right To Work” concept. Under this business friendly approach to those who work, if a union negotiates a contract, any worker  can opt out of the union and receive the benefits of the negotiation. This ploy is simply an effort by Republicans to destroy unions and lower wages. Throughout American history, it is the union which has been the driving engine to higher wages,more money for workers and less for business interests.

Wisconsin Dade County Judge William Foust ruled the “right to work” law in the sate was unconstitutional because it meant unions obtained higher wages and some workers would get this while refusing to pay union dues. Naturally, Governor Scott Walker is upset. Just remember, when America had strong unions, a worker earned enough to buy a house and sent his children to college. End unions and one rewards business to lower wages!

Republicans On Foreign Policy

We have now been treated to several months of Republican candidates pontificating on how they would handle foreign policy. Let me sum up their “ideas.”

1. Bomb whatever is moving. Who the hell knows how or why bombing guys who are hiding will result in their deaths.

2. Restore the American military to what it once was. The US military  budget is nearly $60o billion. That is greater than the next six nations. Oh, we have 12 Carrier groups and the Chinese navy has ONE old aircraft carrier.

3. Ted insists that he even knows where the Middle East is, but the only one that he surpasses in knowledge is Donald Trump.

4. Let’s build a wall on our southern border. I assume that is an example of foreign policy.

5. Let’s NOT build a wall on our northern border. Gee, do you think terrorists might figure out it is OK to get in by the northern border?

6. Be tough with China. Whatever that means.

7. Fuck NATO. Now that is a great example of foreign policy.

Afghanistan Forever And Never

Every so often I think about Afghanistan and the lost dreams of that invasion. As you recall, the US invaded Afghanistan, not only to seek out Osama bin Laden, but to end the tyrannical rule of Muslim fanatics who had imposed Sharia law and made life miserable for women, mainly in the cities. Prior to the arrival of the Taliban, most  urban Afghan women had rights to education and interesting careers. Well, the Taliban arrived, and that dream ended.

So, we Americans arrived, and George Bush had absolutely NO ideas concerning exactly what the US should or would do in the newly conquered areas. John  Sopko, the Inspector General for Afghanistan pointed out that after FIFTEEN YEARS, the place was in chaos. 700 schools are now closed. Corruption is the norm for what passes for government. Soldiers discover their guns or ammunition has been sold by superiors to–THE TALIBAN. Opium production is as high as it was prior to the arrival of American and NATO forces. So, what to do?

1. The US should purchase the entire opium crop, including paying farmers top price. That would damage the Taliban source of great wealth. Heck, we can burn the stuff–much cheaper than fighting the Taliban.

2. Transfer power to local big shots and accept the reality the central government simply can not win any war.

3. Retain the army in  few major cities and turn the rest of the country over to local clan leaders.

4. Of course, we could somehow uncover honest, efficient and clear thinking Afghan leaders. I doubt it.

Reality–we just failed in this example of nation building. It would have helped if President Bush had a plan. Then again, George is the older brother of Jeb, and we know how effective Jeb is as a thinker.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

2016 is the year to sell political dreams to one and all.

Part of me would so enjoy President Cruz establishing a budget without the IRS.

I wonder what little Marco Rubio is doing these days.

ISIS  is retreating and losing territory which means, they must blow up some place in Europe.

I doubt that over the past year Donald Trump has expressed one intelligent idea.

I so enjoy when Donald talks to himself during a speech.

Gee, I wonder how many rapes were carried out yesterday by those illegal Hispanic immigrants.
