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.


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


I would welcome, for once, someone on these days of grief actually proposing ways to end violence.

Ben Carson speaks softly and utters nonsense.

Chris Christie can not avoid his ponderous heavy set presence.

So how come, we now have a record number of home runs in baseball?

Every speaker urges we  should come together–and do what?

End the Internet if you want to end violence, it is the educator of violence.

Perhaps, if we came together and had sex, it might reduce violence.


Ah, We Remember You Guys Well

On Monday the Republican convention begins which means, finally, finally, it is the end of the primary battles to decide who is the nominee. We thought it only appropriate to offer a fond farewell to those brave souls who once sought to become the Republican candidate for president.

1. I asked my wife if she recalled Bobby Jindal. Her response, as that of millions, most probably was” “Who?” She had no clue who this guy was or what he ever did. Does anyone know he was a governor of Louisiana?

2. Mike Huckabee is among my favorites. No one was better at displaying his direct contact with God, who he promised was a closet Republican.

3. Carly, Carly, stumbling over chairs, falling off platforms, and shouting with a  loud voice that she hated Hillary more than the other candidates hated her. Stumble on through life.

4. Jeb,Jeb, thee of the Bush clan, defeated, but unbowed. Have a beer for me and jump out of  a plane with dad.

5. Ben Carson, some seek the presidency in order to pass some laws, Ben, had but one dream –to sell his books and pray to God.

6. Rand Paul, son of a Paul who also sought the presidency, like father like son, gracefully disappearing into the shadows of life.

7. Scott Walker, he disappeared so soon, we never got a chance to learn why he was incompetent and a nasty little man.

8. Rick Perry, so sorry they never asked you to name members of the Cabinet this time around. You were prepped with the names of two such people.

9. Ted Cruz, self righteous, bombastic, believer he was the smartest one in class, and the one destined to become school president.

10. Chris Christie, the only one who left the race to become a valet and shoe shine buddy of Donald Trump.

We miss these guys and the dozen others who also ran.

Surprise! Donald is running on a ticket promising LAW AND ORDER!

These past few nights have witnessed one cliche after another cliche about the issue of cops shooting black males.

I would appreciate, although it will never happen,hearing the specific Laws that Donald wants and what does he mean by –ORDER?

Once I become dictator, my first edict will ban any discussions of emails –from whomever to whoever!

I suspect most Americans are more bored than angry.

Gee, I wish we had a presidential candidate who represented the high qualifications of President Millard Fillmore. He wanted to ban immigration of Catholics! He never said a word about Muslim immigrants.

There are moments I wish Donald and Hillary would just disappear and I had the opportunity to vote for Elizabeth Warren.

After twenty five years of Clintons, we need a rest from their escapades.

Republicans are masters of branding Hillary Clinton when she makes a boo-boo.

Oh, if only Elizabeth Warren had run for president!

Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump ticket means they lead all candidates with their six wives.

Say, whatever happened to Ted Cruz, I miss his love of Christ and God.

An NBA center just received $15 million a year for averaging SIX POINTS!

Americans are ANGRY, unfortunately, anger is an emotion, not a policy.


My Buddy, Saddam Hussein

Donald Trump once again displayed his incredible knowledge of the Middle East an its leaders. There is no question when it comes to understanding what has transpired in the Middle East, Donald is our best guide to the war in Iraq that was begun by George Bush. As you recall, Bush had this incredible misunderstanding of Saddam Hussein, and invaded Iraq and murdered a champion of human rights.

Only Donald really understands why Saddam Hussein was a wonderful man who fought for human rights. “Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right” But, did you know what he did well? He killed terrorists.He did that so good. They didn’t cared about rights. He didn’t talk. They were a terrorist, it was over.”

Huh? There was no al-Qaeda. There was no ISIS. The “terrorists” were people fighting for human rights!! If ignorance was a virtue, Donald Trump would be an angel.

Oh, That Iraq War

Unlike the United States which has refused to examine reasons for the Iraq War, the English government established the Chilcot commission several years ago in order to determine the how and why  of England’s entry into the war. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair testified and he did recall informing President Bush “I will be with you what ever.” He now makes clear he regrets making such a pledge. “I express my sorrow more than you can ever believe.”

Let me get this clear. Over four thousand American soldiers died in the war in Iraq and over 30,000 were wounded. So far, our Congress has empowered seven committees to examine the death of FOUR Americans at Benghazi. But, the death of four  thousand is of no interest to Congressional Republicans!!

I do miss the eloquent words of Ben Carson even though I never understood one of them.

Donald Trump has a great career awaiting as a salesman of medicine that cures all illnesses.

Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump, between them at least six wives.

Just think, in 1952 many Americans would not vote for Adlai Stevenson because he was–DIVORCED!

Bill Clinton has an incredible propensity to create problems for his wife.

This is not the worst of times, but it sure heck is not the best of times.

We learn that all humans are flawed, the question is which flaw is the worst one?


Things We Could Use

In order to assist Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton we offer some things that might assist their candidacy.

1.  A self destructive computer that blows up at the first email sent.

2. A collection of Jewish stars that self destruct when placed on any Trump email.

3. A trophy of an elephant’s head for Hillary to hang on her wall.

4. A mask that can reflect your current views on any subject. For example, the Devil mask which accompanies any attack on Hillary Clinton.

5. A Bernie Sanders white haired wig for Hillary to wear when addressing youth. Of course, she has to wave her arms.

6. A strip tease by Ivanka as Donald goes into one of his rants of anger.

7. A picture of Hillary kneeling before the Pope promising never again to send an email.

8. Donald stripping to underwear when addressing Jews to prove he was circumcised.

9. LeBron James assuring America he will join the Clinton team if she is elected.

10. A picture of Donald having sex with an Hispanic illegal immigrant.

Not a single person seeking the presidency this year ever served in the armed forces of the nation.

Donald Trump who promises to make America “Great Again” made certain he did NOT serve in the Armed forces during the Vietnam war.

HATE is the most normal expression these days.

Saudi Arabia is reaping the harvest of educating youth to hate the Western world.

Ordinary Muslims in the Middle East suffer from the stupidity of their leaders who support terrorist groups.

Some day Donald will define the word, “crooked” and look in the mirror.

Americans will have a rendezvous with their stupidity if they elect Trump.

Elie Wiesel Is Dead

There are individuals in our lives who  offer an opportunity to believe in the decency of the human spirit Elie Wiesel survived the Holocaust, he devoted his life fighting for the rights of humans throughout the world. There are those who suffer persecution and  hatred, and learn from that experience to hate and persecute others.  Ironically, Jews on the West Bank in Palestine never learned from the words of Elie Wiesel that those who experience the horror of hate, must never resort to that emotion towards those who are weak.

I once heard Elie Wiesel say in a speech, the wise man poses questions, the ignorant man provides answers. I wonder how those in  Israel fail to heed those wise words by raising questions pertaining to their actions against Palestinians?  How many Israelis are posing questions as to whether there are other options than those presently being followed by their government to attain peace. NO, those supporting Palestinians, are not perfect humans, yes, some have resorted to hate and violence. BUT, the fact there are evil Palestinians only makes it more important to support the mass of Palestinians who seek to have a homeland and live in peace with Israel. That would be the lesson one gains from the life of Elie Wiesel.
