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.

ISIS Gains Power

It has become the common refrain of those who want to blast the hell out of ISIS that all it takes is a few bombs or, maybe the Marines to send the black hooded group of terrorists back to where they came from. Reality: There are an estimated 35,000 ISIS militants in Iraq and they are confronted by over 150,000 Iraq soldiers, Iraq planes,and about 20,000 Kurdish troops. So, the question remains–how can a band that is outnumbered about six to one beat the hell out of these guys?

Reality check:

1. ISIS is performing tasks that win favor of those in Iraq cities.

2. Most reports from those who have talked with Iraqis who spent time under ISIS rule, usually report the following: ISIS cleans up a city, it ends corruption which is the common way of life living under the democratic rule of the Iraq government,and it certainly performs normal functions such as cleaning the streets and ending crime.

3. The best way to defeat ISIS is the creation of an effective, honest, and hard working Iraq army. That would be better than the US Marines!

Forever And A Day In Iraq

There are moments when I think fighting in Iraq has ben going on throughout my life, and that it will continue until I am laid away in my grave. The story is always the same: Iraq soldiers are fighting in Fallujah, of course a few years ago, American soldiers were fighting in Fallujah. President Obama insists that things are getting better, Senator John McCain insists that we have to send in the Marines to make things better. Of course, several years ago the Marines did go into Fallujah, but McCain just wants one more shot at victory.

Obama finally has grasped an essential truth about war– the side which is driven by belief, the side which has enthusiasm, the side which believes that God is on its side, has a better shot of gaining victory. So far, the bad guys have these feelings, the good guys don’t even know if they are the good guys. So, once more into the breach for God.

Donald Rewords His Words

It is Wednesday so being it is a day of the week, Donald Trump has some comment about:

1. Immigrants

2. Mexican immigrants

3. His hair.

4. His desire to lead men into battle.

5. Barack Obama’s birth and life in Africa.

Actually, he only had a further comment about words concerning, “Mexican rapists.” Donald felt the need to clarify what he said. He really meant that Mexicans are “fabulous people,” but unfortunately they are under the control of a Mexican government that supports rapists. I trust this will make liberals and supporters of rapists to become quiet.

Why I Will Vote For Donald?

I understand the Jon Stewart and others poke fun and ridicule at Donald Trump,but this blogger wants the Donald Man to become our next president. Why?

1. He definitely will “tell it as it is.” No more secrets in Washington D.C.

2. He will be the first red headed president.

3. At least everyone in both parties agrees that he does not make sense. Thus, the beginning of political cooperation.

4. He definitely will get Hispanics to realize they MUST vote.

5. He definitely will get women to VOTE.

6. We finally will have a president who is dumber than those in Congress.

7. After Trump, Americans will finally understand the need to become interested in politics.

8. His presidency will create a job boom for comedians.

9. I doubt if any ISIS leader would enjoy being anywhere near Americans with this nut case who makes them come across as normal.

So, vote for Donald!

Mouth That Always Roars

The ultimate nightmare for Republicans has emerged. Donald Trump has hit the campaign trail with a thundering entry that,for the moment, has shaken the entire Republican campaign. NO, he will not win the nomination, but for the following seventeen months, this mouth that can never be silenced, and this crude, bombastic candidate has the money and time to cause havoc within the Republican search for a leader. Republicans have created the monster by a non-stop campaign to vilify any who dare oppose them. Instead of cooperating and working with Obama to secure laws that made sense, they could not shut up in uttering their hateful words. In Republican normality, say anything, shout hate and anger, and what eventually appears-Donald Trump?

Paul Begala is a Democrat who frequently appears on CNN to offer analysis. He now is sharing his latest analysis. “I am a person of faith– and Donald’s entry into this race can only be attributed to the fact that the Lord is a Democrat with a sense of humor.” Ted Cruz proved his point-“Donald was terrific.” None thing else to add.

ONLY IN AMERICA

Every so often having nothing better to do in my life, I make lists as to why America is such an exceptional nation.

1. We are the only industrial nation that does not have paid leave for those having babies.

2. We rank God knows where in our fast trains.

3. We are the only nation that has God on our side.

4. We have absolutely no interest in our infrastructure.

5.We definitely lead the world in the number of peoples seeking the nation’s top job.

6. We are the birth place of Donald Trump, trump that,I dare you!

7. We definitely lead the world in possession of guns. Take that,ISIS!

8. We lead the world in the number of people in prison.

9. We lead the world in the number of people killed by guns.

10.We definitely will not be the place that Jesus comes to when he returns.

Moments To Cherish

The coming months will be filled with interesting events on our political scene. Following are some moments that will fill me with joy.

1. Rotund Chris Christie shouting, “When I mean something, I mean it!”

2. Mike Huckabee getting on his knees to pray to God.

3. Carly Florin on a stage with fifteen men. This definitely makes her come across as beautiful.

4. Ted Cruz appearing wrapped in the Confederate flag.

5. Rick Perry standing next to Rick Santorum which makes it impossible to know which of the Ricks is speaking.

6. Jeb Bush at some moment discussing George Bush.

7. George Pataki just standing there looking like George Pataki.

8. Donald Trump shouting, “I AM the one God desires, I paid him money for the endorsement!”

9. Any words uttered by Ben Carson, at least he adds some color to the event.

10. The custodian of the place who just wandered onto the platform to clean it.
