Maybe Climate Change?

If there is one topic that I know about it is the cowardly behavior of textbook companies. In the 1970s, I published with Addison Wesley the first high school American text book on the history of the United States that contained an entire chapter devoted to the lives of black Americans.We were told by several Southern state textbook committees that unless we removed that chapter, they would not accept our book. We did not and thus lost thousands of sales.

A new study of California textbooks reveals the issue of climate change is NOT being addressed by textbook companies. Any reference to climate change is accompanied by words such as: “could” “might” “may’ and students are informed, “Not all scientists agree about the causes of climate change.” Yes, there is Dr. Carson who does not. California should make clear to any textbook company that if they offer such dribble they will not sell a single textbook in the state of California. They are doing this to ensure sales in red states.


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


We need some brave explorers to venture into the dark recesses of the Trump mind.

I sure wonder what Abraham Lincoln is thinking about this collection of Republicans.

Marco Rubio is slowly disappearing into the west.

Ted Cruz should begin to wear two guns on his waist. I would advise not using them.

I continue wondering what kind of doctor Ben Carson was.

Barack Obama is among the most inept leaders in history. Silence is his concept of leadership.

Being a Muslim in Republican America is like being a Jew in Nazi Germany.Same fears.

Donald’s Fantasy World

I was among the millions in New York City on the day of 9/11. I was among the millions who witnessed the horror of that day. For some strange reason, I simply do not recall the Trump version of those days. I admit to being age 85 and somewhat senile, but I simply have no recollection of his recall of events.

“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey where thousands and thousands of people were cheering. It did happen. I saw it. I saw people cheering on the other side of New Jersey where you have Arab populations.”

There is no doubt this happened in the mind of Donald Trump.

Confronting ISIS

Just about every Republican has a plan on handling ISIS. To sum up their plans–bomb, bomb, bomb, and a few boots on the ground, but not too many. Here is reality:

1. ISIS simply represents deep seated issues within aspects of those sectors of the world which have not entered the modern era of economies that offer incentives for young people to become productive members of society. If not, ISIS,there will be a dozen similar groups.

2. ECONOMICS is at the center of a long range plan. The Middle East needs vast economic investments.

3. Saudi Arabia MUST be confronted. It is the source of the Taliban and of ISIS. It is Wahabbi clerics who created these organizations and they live in Saudi Arabia and preach from that center. An American president, a French president an English prime minister and a German leader must make clear to Saudi Arabia it is either the end of Wahabbi sparked terrorism or Saudi Arabia will confront terrorism without the West. If no such action is taken, ISIS will continue to exist.

Perhaps, Donald has a PLAN to handle Saudi Arabia, we await information about the great PLAN.

Ben Carson On The World

I recently was engaged in a conversation with Ben Carson as to the health ingredients of bagels and was enthralled by his perceptive comments.

1. Have you noticed how many people who do not eat bagels get sick?

2. I highly recommend Gefilte Fish for health reasons. Look at how many Jews live so long.

3. If I had a choice between prayers and open heart surgery, no doubt it is on my knees.

4. People ask if I am Negro or a colored person, I am Ben Carson.

5. I see no reason to call them “gays” perverts is more like the truth.

6. The only nude position is with your spouse in bed.

7. Perhaps if Hispanics would become slaves for a hundred years they could then claim the right to live in America.

No Room For Jesus

I do understand there are people whose feelings are easily offended. I do understand that young students should be warned prior to reading a book that it might contain some words or ideas that would be offensive to most decent folk. I do understand there are groups which oppose allowing those with the “wrong ideas” to speak before campus groups.

Digital Cinema Media certainly should be awarded First Prize in the Don’t Hut Anyone’s Feeling contest. The UK company announced that it would not allow a ONE minute video prior to the new Star Wars film that featured the Lord’s Prayer because it might “offended some people.”

I guess Jesus was lucky to get that bed in the manger. Thank God he is not alive today.

Nazis Alive And Well

The history of America is one in which each new immigrant group has encountered hatred and bigotry from those who arrived earlier in history. The usual complaints was that newcomers were dirty, criminals, took away jobs and never could be trusted. In the 19th century a political party– The No Nothings- wanted a halt to immigration of Catholics, they wanted Catholics subjected to different requirements in order to vote, and they engaged in attacks on Catholics. Swedes, Hungarians, Russians, you name them, they all were potential enemies of the state. So, the current fear and hatred of Muslims is simply one piece in the fabric of American life.

Donald Trump wants ID cards for Muslims.He wants to close down mosques. Of course, the Nazi regime DID have ID cards for Jews, and they DID close down synagogues. Of course, they also DID murder six million Jews. One must admire Donald because he does not want to murder Muslims. Talk about a man with compassion in his heart!

Nihad Awad is head of the Council on American-Islamic relations. His comment on the words of Carson and Trump. “This is beyond terrifying, any student of history knows what special IDs did in Europe. In 20 years I have never heard such intolerance and hatred from political leaders in this society.”

Sorry, you have never lived with such a group of small minded, ignorant, and hateful political people seeking to become a leader. They have no idea as to what leading a nation is all about. OH,yes they do–HATE, HATE, HATE!

If Republicans want to end terror in America, how about banning all guns?

A piece of paper flew in the window and landed on the desk of Ben Carson, he signed it.

Listen to cries of hate about Muslims and think about cries of hate against Jews.

I am so relieved that Republican candidates have a PLAN.

My dream: General Donald Trump leading men into battle.

I wonder if any doctor has considered operating on the head of Ben Carson.

Has anyone in the Republican party considered contacting Cheney or Rumsfeld for ideas?

General Trump Has A Plan

General Donald Trump has a plan to prevent terrorists from carrying out their destruction in America. This is a Big Plan. He has some Great Ideas. And, when it comes to Great Ideas, who better than Donald? So, here is the plan:

1. Make every Muslim in America wear a special identification badge which glows in the night so we know where Muslims are at every moment. “A special form of identification that noted their religion.”

2. Have FBI agents watching every mosque in America. Or, how about having FBI agents checking anyone entering a mosque for weapons.

3. Provide weapons to everyone entering a mosque so they can kill fellow Muslims?

4. How about returning to the Bible and killing every child born to a Muslim?

Louisiana Blues

Senator David Vitter was once considered the certain choice to become the next Governor of the state of Louisiana. He was a Republican, he had an outstanding record using the services of one of Louisiana’s best brothels and he had not submitted his name to run for president. Not once did he appear on stage with the clowns seeking that position. He is currently down by 22 points to his opponent John Bel Edwards.

So , David decided there was only one option left. He now charges that if Edwards gets elected swarms of Syrian refugees will be pouring through the streets of New Orleans. Unfortunately for Vitter, the current approval rate for Governor Bobby Jindal is about 22%.

Who knows if the Syrian ploy will gain him victory. Perhaps he might try:

1. Elect Edwards and support abortion.

2. Elect Edwards and raise taxes on job creators.

and so on and so on.
