Emperor Obama Has Spoken!

It was simply a matter of time before Emperor Barack Obama finally revealed his desire to end freedom as we know it in America, and impose martial law. Sorry, he did not order the arrest of Republican leaders, no, he did not shut down Fox News, no, Ted Cruz is still shouting and screaming in Texas about “those people.” The Emperor spoke last night on television and revealed that he has no respect for the Constitution. President Obama finally came out in support of immigrants to this nation. He spoke about illegal Mexicans who had come to America in search of work an freedom. You know, just like YOUR ANCESTORS who came to America in search of freedom and work.

Obama spoke from his heart. He made clear that “we are a nation that tolerates the hypocrisy of a system where persons who pick our fruit, and make our bed have a chance to get right with the law. Are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents?” He has now offered about four million illegal immigrants an opportunity to become legal citizens. Naturally, Republicans are up in arms over the concept of Executive action. Lets examine the record.

1. Republican President Ronald Reagan issued a similar Executive action during his administration. NO Republican threat to impeach. After all, that was an act by Saint Reagan.

2. Just about every American President has issued such Executive Actions.

3. During World War II, President Roosevelt sent 120,000 Japanese American citizens to camps, and no one spoke about impeachment.

Unfortunately, the game of impeachment has begun. We urge Republicans to pursue this game.

Let’s Impeach Black Dude

It is less than ten days and already some Republicans are muttering the word, Impeachment. In order to assist these gallant defenders of our Constitution, let me list some reasons why Barack Obama should be Impeached!

1. He was born in Africa. I have yet to have him produce proof that he was not born in Africa. Check with the eminent Constitutional authority, Donald Trump if you doubt this.

2. He chews gum at important international meetings.

3. He wears weird clothes at international meetings.

4. He is the first politician in American history who told a lie!

5. He refuses to hold press conferences.

6. He is the first American President to draw upon Executive powers. The First!

7. He refuses to compromise by agreeing to all demands of his opponents!

8. He is the first American President to send soldiers overseas without approval of Congress.

The bottom line is that Barack Obama does not like the Republican Party!!

The Plight Of The Wealthy In America

There are moments in my life when guilt is felt because for some reason, my heart is not in zinc with Republicans who continue insisting that wealthy folk in this nation are oppressed by Big Government. Recent studies by Emanuel Saez and Gabriel Zuchman reveal the sad plight of our wealthy oppressed men and women who must dwell in shanty mansions without daily access to ordinary folks. Just imagine, no time in the diner talking with people who engage in hard physical labor. According to these economists:

In 1980, the top 1% controlled 7% of our wealth. However, due to bad times, today they control 22%.

The wealth of 90% of Americans fell from 36% to 23%.

Let me explain why this is good news for Americans. Less wealth, means less access to health care. This means you die earlier and open new job opportunities for young Americans. I finally understand why Republicans want the wealthy to get more and more. This leads to earlier deaths, more jobs for the funeral business. And, more jobs at the lower rung of our economy.

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

Death means you cannot discuss your death with others.

Table of senior at McDonald’s means at least one brought donuts.

Tall blond woman wearing boots, definitely gets my attention.

Modern lunch with family means it is a meeting of iPads.

I wonder if they have a buffet in heaven.

In every end there is a new beginning.

Barack Obama is the great Miscommunicator.

Nurses enjoy patients who laugh.

Some days I think God took the detour.

Onward Christian Soldiers Marching As To Iraq

As you may or may not recall back in 2008 the newly elected President Obama promised to end our wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq. OK, he did remove most soldiers from Iraq although he did insist upon a “surge”in Afghanistan which was about as successful as the one in Iraq–in other words, it never worked aside from a few months. I do not blame Barack Obama for the ineptitude of Iraq Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki who single handedly created the current mess. His anti-Sunni program turned thousands against the Iraq government and compelled most to ally with ISIS. Most probably Obama had limited options in Iraq. Although he could have frozen any and all aid until a coalition government was formed in Iraq.

President Obama will soon dispatch about 1,500 US troops to join the 1,000 currently training Iraq forces. Did Obama have options? Most probably not. However, he could have offered the Iranian army military equipment if they would train Iraqi soldiers. Of course, that would have annoyed AIPAC and led Republicans to go ballistic. I await the Republican military strategy for Iraq. So do Americans!

A Decision From Left Field On Gays

It was simply a matter of time before a conservative judge in the United States of America got in touch with God and realized that allowing gays and lesbians to marry had made the Big Guy up in the sky very angry. After all, God is not married so how can males and females marry those of the same sex? Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton of the 6th C circuit Court of Appeals has decided that allowing gays and lesbians is a violation of the US Constitution. He believes the Constitution places power in the hands of States so he is voiding any overthrow of bans on gay marriages in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky. Just trust the “work of state democratic processes” is the cry of Sutton. As I recall, it was the work of state democratic processes that denied the right of blacks to marry whites or allow black children to attend schools with whites, and certainly democracy in States made clear our Constitution did NOT allow those black folks to drink at the same water fountain as we white folks!

The Supreme Court will void this decision. It is the last gasp of those who live in another century!

Stop Them Americans From Voting!

Republicans are constantly warning the American people that its greatest dangers come from Muslim fanatics or Ebola. The frightened masses of Americans went to the polls fearing some terrible danger that lurks on the borders of America, and it must be stopped. It is clear a majority of those who voted–remember that a majority of Americans never cast a ballot– were convinced their vote was a weapon to save America from—??? Less than forty percent of Americans actually cast a ballot. What have we learned from this election. If few Americans DO vote, then laws and restrictions against voting favor conservative forces.. Reality is that fanatics on the right will vote because their hearts are filled with the passion of hate. There is scant doubt that hundreds of thousands of Americans never got a chance to vote. The Republican party did a magnificent job of reducing voting. Reality check: the most important electoral power in possession of Republicans is reducing the number of those who do not vote. It worked!

So, what is the goal of those who seek that America is once again a land in which the right to vote is not abused.

1. A mass program using social media must make Americans aware of what happened to the right to vote in 2014.

2. The president must hold weekly press conferences in which he discusses the right to vote.

3. Groups like the AARP must make the elderly understand that their right to vote is being denied by Republicans.

4. High school teachers must begin to discuss this topic in Social Studies classes.

5. How about wealthy folk purchasing ads on billboards about the right to vote?

So, What About Iraq?

A new reality is emerging in Iraq that has been virtually ignored by Fox News and its band of pert cure blond haired experts on hair, but who lack any knowledge of the Middle East are not offering their words of wisdom about Iraq. There is a strange silence coming from ISIS. No scenes of ISIS men waving guns aloft as they enter another village and murder the innocent. Frankly, the air attack in desert areas has made it difficult for mass groups to appear. If a large ISIS force makes an appearance, it is soon blasted to pieces by planes. ISIS simply lacks anti-aircraft weapons that can shoot down planes. Its soldiers now must move in small groups using cars to get from place to place, and the last thing they wish to attempt is displaying tanks in the open. NO, ISIS is not dead. I am certain crazy young men and women continue to head for Iraq in order to die for God or a cause. Unfortunately, the only cause they will be able to die for is -Death.

The good news is that Iraq lacks forests or jungles in which soldiers can hide. It is wide open for planes to bomb and destroy. Now, comes the hard part. Can an Iraq government emerge in which Sunnis and Shiites work together? That solution can only come from these groups and President Obama can not enforce US will upon these groups. The air force has done its job, now it is up to Iraqis to end the violence.
