As long as the war in Iraq continues, we shall present voices of American soldiers and discuss issues of concern to those compelled to risk their lives.

Jerks In Oregon Still There?

The ongoing mantra of conservative Republicans is that America must crush with deadly force any and all terrorist groups. In other words, if the government encounters armed terrorists then it is time to employ deadly force and show any and all terrorists that we Americans do  NOT tolerate armed militants in this nation. At this moment, there still remains armed terrorists in the state of Oregon who are holding control of American land at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.

So, let me get this straight. When two armed terrorists invaded a government building and shot up the place, Donald Trump promised that if he was in charge, any such action would end in this great land. How about allowing Donald Trump to handle this act of terrorism and blast these guys to hell! NO terrorist should be allowed to control any piece of our precious American soil!

Just imagine if this group consisted of Mexican illegal immigrants!

It’s Me, Not You!

Marco Rubio informed his followers that “I did not do well tonight.  It’s not on you, it’s  all on me. And, I promise you that I will do better in the future.”

After leaving the hall, Marco was involved in an automobile accident. He jumped from the car, ran to the other driver and said: “I did not do well tonight, it’s not on you, it’s all my fault. I promise the next time I hit a car I will do better than damaging a headlight. Just watch me.”

Marco then went home and in the middle of the night he awoke his wife. “I did not do well tonight. It’s not on you, honey, it’s all on me. I promise to do better from now on. And, when I say that I will come, I damn well will come!”

Carly Fiorina Is Mad!

Another primary battle is over, another time that Carly Fiorina has been slighted by the Republican establishment. There are two ways to evaluate her performance, you can read results from the top down or from the bottom up.If you utilize the second method, which Carly regards as the only honest one, then our hero came in second. And, guess who came in last–Donald Trump! I checked with the only woman in the race for president as a Republican.

Carly: “fred, this is simply another plot by the Obama administration to get rid of the only woman who can defeat Democrats, ISIS, al-Qaeda, and terrorism in the world. Do you think it is a coincidence that I did not get the most votes in New Hampshire? The answer is simple– I am the one Islamic terrorists most fear. I am willing to go to Syria, look the damn terrorists right in their faces and make clear that  President Fiorina will drop atomic bombs and blast them all to their heaven where the virgin women await them!!”

Conversation With Chris Christie

We decided to discuss the Chris Christie campaign with the candidate himself.

M: So, Governor, what really is your view about Marco Rubio?

C: We in the great state of New Jersey know a punk when we see one. That twerp could not last a single day if he was in a New Jersey town with some tough guys hanging around the corner. He has the backbone of a chocolate eclair!

M: Those are tough words from one tough guy. What’s your take on this Cruz guy?

C: A Bible thumping bag of bull shit if you ask me. Every other statement from this punk is about asking God for His blessing. I guess the next thing he will claim is to be the Pope. Oh, I forgot, he switched from being a Catholic to being  God fearing two gun son of a bitch from Texas!

M: I must ask, what is your take on the Donald man?

C: Just one day, just one day, I would like to see him pull that bull shit when in a room with the Mafia crowd.  Just one look from a Mafia Don and Donald would run from the room while pissing in his pants and never turn back. He is full of hot air and he  thinks bullying Jeb Bush is what he could do with a real Mafia soldier. Just try it, Donald, just try it. We will pick up your body in the nearest river that night!

M: I’m curious, what is your take on Bernie Sanders?

C: Oh, you mean the Jew fella. A nice Jewish man who should spend his time in the park playing chess with the other white haired old guys. Frankly, I have no idea what he really wants, and I doubt that he does.

Conversation With Rubio’s Alter Ego

There is considerable evidence if the debates reveal anything about the candidates that Marco Rubio has a set list of thoughts and words to express. We thought it might be beneficial to discuss him with his alter ego-the other Marco, you know, the reverse Rubio.

M: So, tell me Alter Marco, how would you describe your political thoughts on what must be done in this nation?

AE:  This election is about the Hillary Clinton emails, it is about the great tragedy  in Benghazi, it is about how Hillary Clinton is simply a female version of Barack Obama and they seek to destroy the very fabric of our society.

M:  That sounds very similar to what the real Marco Rubio says at each debate. Are you telling me that his alter ego has the same script?

AE: This election if about Hillary Clinton emails, it is about the tragedy of Benghazi,  it is about the buddy of Barack Obama, and it is about their plan to destroy the very basis of our society.

M: Gee, what you just said is what you just said a few moments ago.

AE: If you check both statements you will find different words used. How can it be a  script if I change some words?

M: So, I gather that you really don’t like any Democrat?

AE: This election is about Hillary emails and the debacle at Benghazi when she allowed over three Americans to die.  Emails and Benghazi are what is most troubling Americans and Marco Rubio will not allow liberals to silence his voice of reason!

Chris Christie Is Mad!

Chris Christie is a heavy set man, he is rather hefty and knows how to throw his weight around. It is best that when Chris gets upset, that any normal person make certain they are nowhere in his vicinity. The other night at the Republican debate, Chris sort of got sore at Marco Rubio. He accused Marco of having the same set message regardless of the time day or night. It sort of goes something like this:

“My parents are immigrants from Cuba who came to this great nation and worked themselves up. I love America. I love Iowa. I love the Republican party and I sure love  the dough that comes with running for president. The real enemy of America is NOT ISIS. The real enemy of America is Hillary Clinton. She is the  one responsible for Benghazi! The infamy of Benghazi is the worst disaster in American history and when I become president, the first person headed to jail is Hillary Clinton! OK, Pearl Harbor caused a few more deaths, but the deaths at Benghazi were ordered by Hillary Clinton. Elect me and send Hillary Clinton to prison!!”

Bernie Wants It All

The essence of the Sanders foreign policy is that American troops must never become involved in any aspect of “nation building.” He has a hard time envisioning a situation in which  the use of military force would be used.  After the debacle of Iraq and the horror of what is going on in Syria, it is difficult to  disagree with that point of view. The question posed is: “are there any situations in which America would employ military force?”

In the real world, a president  has to be prepared to use our military. Frankly, I do not know if that situation would be in the Middle East or some place else. A different question might be: “What type of military force could be used in the Middle East?

1. At present we are using our air force.

2. We are using Special Forces–small groups of highly trained soldiers.

3. We are sending members of the military  to train the Iraq army.

None of the above would lead to what happened in Iraq.

Marco Sounds Alarm About Terrorists!

America can rest easy today  because we finally have a candidate for president who is not trapped in political correctness. Marco is very upset because  President Obama gave  a speech in a mosque instead of a church.”Look at today: he gave a speech at a mosque. Oh, you know, implying  that there is discrimination against Muslims. Of c course there is discrimination in America of every kind. But the bigger issue is radical Islam And, by the way radical Islam is a threat to Muslims.”

Well, in his speech President Obama warned about radical Muslims who posed a threat to Muslims. So, let me get this straight–Marco Rubio is upset because President Obama made a speech to Muslims warning against radical Islamic terrorists. Sometimes when Marco makes  a speech it is difficult to get the point.

Oh, and Marco promised that if elected Hillary Clinton will go to prison for Benghazi to emails or something.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Some politicians live in the world of dreams, others in the world of reality.

Ted Cruz would not know what constitutes the truth even if Jesus handed it to him.

My dream-a speech by Marco Rubio which does not talk about his immigrant parents.

At least Ben Carson is honest, all politicians need some fresh new clothes.

Each day I feel so sorry for Jeb Bush, who is lost in the bushes.

Gee, I can sleep peacefully tonight, Rick Santorum has ended his quest for the  presidency.

Donald just can  not accept the word, “defeat,” it is not in his vocabulary.

Hillary Displays Warmth

Hillary Clinton is at her best with a small group in a town hall where she can allow her inner warmth to shine. She spent less time talking about her “experience” and a lot of time just talking about her inner self and how she cares about the American people.  There were no grandiose ideas put forth, just a lot of common sense. She made clear that at this moment in time the issue is building on what is rather than creating what we would love to be. She came across as a realist, a progressive, or if you prefer, a liberal.

Her best moment was when asked to promise not to send Americans into  harm’s way. Her response was that she could not make such a promise. That was the type of honesty that is missing from Bernie Sanders when he discusses foreign policy and certainly from the Trump crowd. If the US was bombed by North Korea it would mean thousands of Americans once again fighting in Korea. Such is reality.
