Recep Is Angry At EU!

Over the past fifteen years Recep Erdogan has gone from being a mayor in Turkey to its prime minister and when that got boring, he decided to become President of Turkey. When he became prime minister there actually were newspapers and magazines that were legally allowed to write about the government without having  to clear things with Recep. His Justice and Development party now rules the nation. In an election held early in the year, this party fell to only receiving 39% of the vote. Well, if one is the Big Guy in a nation, he created a “threat” from Kurdish groups seeking to obtain their rights and transformed them into a terrorist group bent on taking over the nation. Two months ago his party gained over 40% of the vote.

The European Union led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel has reached out to Erodgan with a plan. The EU would give Turkey over $8 billion if they prevented Syrian immigrants to head for Europe. One condition of this agreement was that Erdogan would adhere of EU guidelines on freedom of the press. Turkey now has the most journalists in jail of any society in the world. Well, Recep is furious at this example of “colonialism” which seeks to take away his right to take away the freedom of Turks!

Just Another Day In Iraq

The good news from Iraq these days is that one knows the day before what will be the news from Iraq tomorrow. A majority of people in Iraq are Shiites and a minority are Sunni Muslims. Under Saddam Hussein, the Sunnis ran Iraq. Now, that he is gone, Shiites are making up for lost time with discrimination against Sunnis, including arresting Sunni political leaders. So, one can daily expect the following:

Yesterday in Baghdad, 67 dead and 87 wounded in a Shiite marketplace. Later in the day, a suicide bomber wearing a vest blew himself up and murdered 17 Shiites and wounded a few dozen. We can expect tomorrow that suicide bomber will blow himself up in a Sunni marketplace area.

And, so on, and so on, and so on. Will this madness ever end?

When Will It End?

I was raised in New York City during the 1930s and 1940s when some of the most famous criminals were around–Lucy Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Bugsy Siegel, the Baldi mob, and dozens of others. But,  in that era of major criminals, there were some basic laws followed by anyone out to murder anyone. One left alone women and children. Of course, in that era, most states such as New York had strict gun laws like the Sullivan Act which was generally accepted as in accord with the 2nd Amendment.

Throughout the first half of the twentieth century, the Supreme Court interpreted the 2nd Amendment to allow State governments to pass gun laws. Since the Supreme Court changed its views, we have witnessed non-stop murder due to the fact anyone can get a gun. In Detroit the  other day, a five year old came home from school, found her grandmother’s gun lying under the pillow and shot herself. I assume Ted Cruz will emphasize she was just carrying out her Constitutional rights under the 2nd Amendment.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the national debt from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Say one thing about Donald Trump, he sure is not a “Conservative” in his economic thinking.

I sure miss Ted Cruz discussing guns and immigrants.

Fire burns up an entire Canadian city and Americans just give the news a ho-hum reaction.

Some day someone will explain this thing called, the Kardashians.

I really miss Jon Stewart, Noah Trevor just is not another Stewart.

I wish Stephen Colbert was back with his original  comedy show.

Strange, but attacks upon Barack Obama are not that frequent these days.

 

 

The Toilet Wars Rage

There are moments when one wonders how the hell one wound up in the United States of America during what appears to go for an election. OK, there are some minor problems such as income inequality or student debt or lack of good paying  jobs, not merely for newly graduated college students but for anyone seeking to make a decent life. If one examine the recently concluded Republican primary it is quite clear those seeking the Republican nomination had different ideas as to what is wrong in America.

1. Taxes on the rich are too high and that is why there are not enough well paying jobs.

2. Students made the debt, and since they are not a big business, they have to pay the debt they incurred.

BUT, the recurring issue that, at one point or another, winds up as THE important issue of modern America is–who can piss and shit in a public bathroom? There apparently is some special quality to shit produced by transgender folks and this means, stay out of bathrooms.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, continues to insist that North Carolina is the NINTH LARGEST STATE and this means something about where transgender folks should piss and shit. As anyone knows, God only shits in a bathroom where people shit based on the gender listed on their birth  certificate.

All I can say to Governor McCrory is–PISS ON YOU!

“I Know Russia Well”

There are numerous liberals and un-Americans in this great land, who refuse to accept the intelligence, the world knowledge, and dignity of Donald Trump. To demonstrate his foreign policy knowledge, Donald pointed out: “I know Russia well. I had a major event in Russia two or three years ago, Miss Universe contest, which was a big, big, incredible event. An incredible success.”

And, furthermore:

Donald was in a market place in Jerusalem where he purchased–with  his own money, a bunch of blintzes and latkas, these are real terrific Jewish foods! And, I mean the Greatest Jewish foods!

Donald was at the Olympics, three or four or whatever years ago, and he was right in the audience when a guy from Jamaica, won the hundred yard dash. HE knows hundred yard dash victor, can Hillary say the same?

Donald was in Turkey, a few years ago, and  you know that ISIS was next door in Syria, and Donald even stayed an entire week in Turkey which means he has gobs and gobs of knowledge about Turkey and he even drank some Turkish coffee!

A few years ago or maybe a dozen years ago, Donald was in Iceland, and he watched a fishing event where fishermen caught real fish from ICELAND! Does Hillary know any Icelandic fishermen?

 

NRA Originalists Believe In Founding Fathers

Ammon Bundy led gun owners and those seeking to take over Federal conservation areas on ground they simply support the ideas of former Justice Antonin Scalia and the silent Justice Clarence Thomas who claim they interpret the Constitution according the the  original intention of our Founding Fathers. These “originalists” are convinced the Founding Fathers wanted all power and control of land to be given to State governments. Let’s  examine the record:

The  original government of the newly independent states was based upon the Articles of Confederation. This government eliminated a strong executive and gave all power to the states. The result was absolute chaos and even minor rebellions such as the Shays Rebellion.

Our FOUNDING FATHERS called for a Convention that abolished the Articles of Confederation and created a powerful executive. The entire aim of our FOUNDING FATHERS was to curtail State power and transfer it to the new Federal  government. THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL INTENTION!

Oh, and President Thomas Jefferson pushed through the purchase of the Louisiana Territory which then fell under the authority of the Federal Government.

Paul Ryan Peacemaker?

Paul Ryan may be the Majority Leader in the House of Representatives but there are many Republicans ready to shove something up his rear end. Paul has made clear that at this moment, he is “not ready” to endorse the candidacy of Donald Trump. But, “he’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the Convention.” In other words, Paul will step down as head of the Convention and allow some more worthwhile Republican such as Chris Christie or Sarah Palin to take over.

Sarah has made clear that she is ready and able to ensure that Paul Ryan will be defeated in a Republican primary this spring which will end his career. Unless, of course if he gets on bended knees and kisses the feet of Donald. Ryan is as frightened of Sarah Palin as he is of Ted Cruz winning the Republicans Man of  the year award form Congressional Republicans.

Who Wants To Go To Heaven?

Once upon  a time, a few months ago, there was a teacher named Reince Priebus who had a class of 16 boys and one girl. One day, he told the students about the wonders of this wonderful place high up in the sky which is called, Republican Heaven. He asked how many of them wanted to go to  Heaven. A red haired boy named Donald shot his hand into the air and said: “Me, only Me, because I am the most intelligent in this class, and I know the most and when I get to heaven I’m going to build the largest, the biggest wall so that no one will ever again get in without an OK from me.”

Benny Carson said:”that’s OK with me as long as you buy the story of my life.”

Carly said: “Nobody, and I mean no guy is getting there before me. I’m the smartest in this whole  class of dumb bells.”

Little Marco said: “If I get to heaven will it mean that I will never again sweat so much?”

Jeb said: “Well, Donald, my big brother already got there and he said that I’m going to be the next one to get into Heaven, so there!”

Randy Paul said: “Heaven, schmeaven, who cares. Frankly, I really don’t want to go with Donald.”

Johnny Kasich said: “Can I get lots of food to eat in Heaven?”

Mikey Huckabee said: “I promise to pray for  all in this class to get to heaven. God almighty already said I’m going.”

Teddie said: “There is no way I’m going to heaven if Donald goes!”

What the rest said, no one cares about.
