Ben Carson On Syria

Since Ben Carson is the Republican leader at this moment in time, I decided to interview him on the issue of ISIS in Syria. After all, this man was once a great surgeon and now is a great headcase.

M: So, Dr. Carson, what do you think about the situation in Syria?

C: I want everyone in America to know that I am very interested and want to see you all back my campaign.

M: Sorry, Dr. Carson, I was talking about the nation of Syria, not seeing people.

C: Syria? Is that the place in what they call the Middle East?

M: Yes.

C: I want those in the Republican party to know that I believe strongly in being in the middle of things, I am not the kind of person who insists on going overboard on anything. Stay in the middle is my motto.

M: So, what did you think about Paris?

C: I love Paris. My wife and I were there years ago on our honeymoon.

M: Sir, I was referring to the murders in Paris.

C: Let me recount one time a man who murdered two people was wounded and I did heart surgery to save his life. That’s the Christian that I am, help the afflicted said Jesus, and I always have.But, when the friends of the men he murdered came to the hospital, I held off three of them with a knife that I was holding, yes, all by myself!

M: Thank you, Dr. Carson

Paris The New 9/11

The people of France are angry, the political leaders of America are dying to prove they are ready to take out ISIS tomorrow,and there are dozens of people still suffering from the chaos of the attacks. There is no doubt that the people of France are experiencing the same shock that Americans felt on 9/11. One outcome of the Americans anger was the horrible mistake of George Bush to invade Iraq. If there is one lesson from 9/11 it is to be careful how to respond to terrorists. The worst mistake is to invade the WRONG place. So, what are objectives?

1. Form a coalition of Muslim nations.

2. Seek to create a new Muslim armed force.

3. Only an Arab led armed force can succeed in the desire to end ISIS.

4. Rally together imams committed to ending radical Islam.

5. Be clear that the US or France can only function as support, not those who fight ISIS directly.


Donald Vs Marco

Since he began the quest for becoming president, Donald Trump has focused on one of his opponents until he thought the person was out of the game. Poor Jeb Bush is most probably the first candidate that was forced into ending his quest, given the disdain and mocking he was subjected to by Donald. Well,now is the turn of Marco Rubio. Trump told CNN Erin Burnett, that “Rubio was always in favor of amnesty. He was always in favor of letting people pour into this country.” Of course when people(that means Iowa conservative voters) found out about his heresy, Marco became one of our greatest opponents of amnesty.

So now Marco has Donald yelling he is an “amnesty traitor” and he has Ted Cruz shouting that he is a friend of terrorists pouring in across the border and God knows what else. After all, Marco is the son of IMMIGRANTS! Has anyone checked to see if he is also a MUSLIM!!

Bernie Butts Into Hillary

At the Democratic debate Bernie Sanders sort of ran rings around Hillary on a few points. He is the only candidate pointing out that our military budget is higher than the next six national military budgets of other nations. Bernie made an important point– The task right now is to rethink how military funds are spent. The task is to create a new military force trained to fight insurgents rather than a military force trained to fight a traditional war with tanks and planes and nuclear weapons. We need an army which has small well trained special forces who are skilled in working against small groups of militants. Planes support such action, but planes are not going to engage in dog fights in the sky.

1. So, what type of air force is needed for future war?

2. What type of ground forces are need for such wars”

3. What type of weapons are needed for such wars?

4. How do we train our generals, how do we train our officers, and how do we train our soldiers?

Perhaps, fewer bucks but well aimed bucks will result in lower military expenditures??

Sheriff Ted Cruz Rides To Rescue

There is an old American tradition that those who come from immigrant background, are sympathetic to the plight immigrants. Not so, Ted Cruz who was burn in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban national. In other words, Ted’s dad is an IMMIGRANT. But, as far as Ted is concerned, lets round up the immigrants who do not belong here and send them packing. OK, so children of immigrants were born in America and under the Constitution, they are citizens of this land. But, Ted went to Harvard where they, for some reason, do not teach Constitutional law.

So, Donald, do you think the wall you want will hold back the hordes of immigrants seeking to pick our peaches or be nannies for women who are working. Not so says Ted. He wants to “build a wall that works.” Perhaps, we can have watch towers manned by guys with weapons to blast away at any damn immigrant who wants to take jobs away from Americans who are dying to dig ditches.

Oh, Ted has been a strong supporter for immigrants arriving under H-1B visas to take jobs away from Americans who work in the field of technology.

P.S. I wonder if Pope Francis gave a blessing to this devout Catholic?

NAR Cheers Paris Attacks!

I had an opportunity today to chat with Joe Smith, a God-fearing, gun-toting red white and blue Christian American who believes that if the world wants end ISIS, send in the NRA.

Me: So, Joe, tell me why the world needs the NRA today?

Joe: Damn it Fred, look at what happened in Paris the other day. No such slaughter would ever occur in NRA Texas.

Me: Please explain, Joe.

Joe: If everyone in Paris belonged to the NRA and was toting their gun, boom boom would have gone their weapons, and doom doom would have gone the terrorists.

Me: So, a people armed are a people safe?

Joe: Damn right, Fred. NO Muslim terrorist is going to step foot in any county in America which has NRA guns. We will blast those damn Mooslims to their hell!

Me: Would any innocent folk get hit during the shoot-out?

Joe: If you got your gun and are blasting away the only dude who gets killed is the dude from Arabia!

Me: So, what lesson do we learn from Paris?

Joe: Always, and I mean, always carry a gun with you, to the concert hall, to a restaurant, to school, to church, heck, even your own home! Damn it, can you trust your wife or the kids??

Death Of A Child

Yes, we all agree that being in the position of enforcing the law can be, on occasion, a difficult if not dangerous job. Although, it is rare that more than a few dozen police are actually killed by criminals during the course of the year. For most cops, the real issue is stress, anxiety, fear, and physical and mental exhaustion. I do agree that when Hollywood or television depicts the performance of a cop, it may not always agree with reality. BUT, Tamir Rice was only twelve years old and playing in a playground with his toy pellet gun when gunned down by officer Loehman.

Experts now insist that Lehman performed his duty by sending several bullets into the body of this child because the policeman feared for his life. How can one respond to the claim that murdering-yes, that is the word, murdering a twelve year old is due to “reasonable fears” of the cop? If this was ONE example, OK, but this example occurs time after time. How about some time on the firing range where one learns how to hit children in the leg while fearing for your life?

Life In Republican America

I have endured the presidency of George Bush and his two clowns, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld so the thought of another Republican president is not that crazy. Last night I dreamed that America elected either Carson or Donald or Ted or Marco or even the hapless Jeb.So,what would life be like in that sort of America?

1. Those with wealth would be exempt from paying taxes so the could create gobs of jobs paying $7.25 an hour.

2. There would be a ‘value added tax”of 15% to pay for lower taxes.

3. Gays and lesbians would be denied the right to have babies.

4. Every damn woman who got pregnant would HAVE that baby.

5. President Ben would have an assistant who pointed out places like Syria or Iran.

6.Cops would be urged to shoot first and think later.

7. You want to go to college, work for twenty years to have the money to attend. NO more handouts!

8. Hungry? Go pick peaches, the illegals are now gone.

Debates That Are Not Debates

During the course of my life I participated in debates both in high school and college. I also taught high school social studies and organized debate teams to enable students to hear various points of view. I thought that was the purpose of debates. Now, in my later years I watch something termed a “debate.” Again, the assumption a “debate” is to present differing points of view to an audience so they can select ideas that make sense. So, along comes something which is advertised as a Republican Debate.

If one person on the stage claims to support cutting out all taxes the rest of the crew will immediately claim they want to end even more taxes. If Donald makes clear he is against illegal immigrants and wants them out of the country. The so-called ‘opposite view’ insists they also want them out,but want more time to accomplish the task. If one attacks Putin, Carly will inevitably announce that she is ready to meet him at high noon to see who can make more tough statements quicker.

There has yet to be any “debate.”

Oh,I forgot Ben who always speaks softly and utters words that no one knows what they mean–but, he is SINCERE.

No More Starbucks!

It is November 13, a Friday the thirteenth so folks at Fox News go together and discussed what new stupidity could they unveil on this allegedly evil day.One of them went to church and then stopped by a Starbucks store where he saw the new coffee cup. Imagine a coffee cup without the picture of Jesus Christ or at least Santa or at least some reindeer! Wow! He rushed back to Fox News and had them announce to Christian viewers that there was another plot to end Christmas. How in God’s name can there be a Christmas without coffee cups with scenes of the holiday.

I have no doubt that in hundreds of Christian churches this Sunday there will be ministers urging their flock to avoid any contact with those who hate Christmas, those who hate the baby Jesus. If you gaze closely at the scene in the manger it is quite clear that baby Jesus was drinking from a bottle that had scenes of Santa Claus and snow and so on.

Did it really snow on the day he was born?
