ON VACATION TO FRIDAY

HAVE A GOOD ONE

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

Donald Trump is a blessing to Hillary Clinton

I thing 17 is an unlucky number, how about two dozen candidates?

Mike Huckabee is at war against women.

Republicans insist God is on their side, the question is–which God?

Say,how come Sarah Palin is not in on this hunt for power?

I so miss Herman Cain.

Email is the worst invention for politicians.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Back To Military Option”

Republican mantra as long as they don’t fight.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “More Money Needed”

Please don’t ask billionaires to contribute.

Sweden,Local: “Is Jesus A Myth”

These days,he is not only a myth, he never existed.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Putin Says Sepp Blatner A Hero”

A man after his own heart, greedy!

Norway,Norway Post: “Police Love Free Travel”

Also, free pass after a shooting.

South Africa, Mail & Guardian: “Board Directors Get Raises”

And, guess who does not!

American Psychological Association Needs A Shrink!

I spent the good part of my life working with psychologists and even taught courses in psychology. I must admit confusion as to the current conflict within the American Psychological Association over the group’s cooperation with the CIA in torturing people. One group of psychologists argue that it was their patriotic duty to torture. Those affiliated with the Society for Military Psychology are furious at the “politically motivated anti-government and anti-military stance” of those who dislike torture. One part of this association believes that a doctor can not engage in torture. Another part believes it is their patriotic duty to torture.

One might remind believers in torture that the Nuremberg Trials after WWII regarded doctors who aided in the death of millions as war criminals. One might remind those who do not like “anti-government” people that in America we have elections to get rid of the government!

Donald Trump On Wealthy Guys

I may not be the greatest fan of Donald Trump but there is one issue on which he knows more than anyone–HOW RICH FOLKS THINK! It was obvious that he would never in a million years attend any meetings with wealthy donors. Why should he? Let Donald explain what his adversary candidates should grasp about those with wealth.

1. Candidates “are controlled by whoever gave them their money.”

2. Candidates who take money from the wealthy “I will tell you they are totally controlled.”

3. The man who has given gobs of money understands what he gets for that money: “I give to everybody and they do whatever I say.”

From the lips of one who has given and got from politicians!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines from the world press along with our comments.

Sweden,Local: “Serial Rapist Released From Jail”

At least he can cease raping in jail.

Norway,Norway Post: “Need A New Direction”

Name the problem in America, this fits!

France, Connexion: “Protests By Tobacconists”

Let me smoke on this one.

China, China Daily: “Allow Dialects On Air”

Everyone has a dialect!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Road Sign Makes A Point”

I prefer curving away from this one.

Cuba, Cuba, Forever

A famous definition of stupidity is the act of repeating an act over and over again even though the results are always the same. In 1960, the American government initiated its program to overthrow the government of Fidel Castro. Heck, in 1961 they even sent in Cuban exiles who were promptly captured during the infamous Bay of Pigs fiasco. Reality is that the Castro family has been in control of Cuba for over seventy years. During this time period the American government has enforced sanctions upon Cuba in an effort to destroy its economy.

Well, after seventy years Cuba is still around. Cuba is still run by the Castro boys. So, what is the response of Republicans to President Obama’s decision to end sanctions? According to Marco Rubio and the others, the solution is to: IMPOSE SANCTIONS. Inform Marco and the anti-Castro guys that what they desire has been in effect for over seventy years, and the result:

NO CHANGE IN THE CUBAN government.

I realize evidence or reality has scant place among Republicans seeking the presidency. They prefer the domain of stupidity.

P.S. Pope Francis assisted the Obama administration to end sanctions.

A Glorious Day

I frequently wonder what exactly would be a wonderful day in my life:

1. A cop who talked rather than shot

2. A cop who gave out traffic tickets, and nothing else.

3. A cop who helped a drunk to stand up and go home.

4. Silence from the Donald man.

5. Mike Huckabee just preaching in some church.

6. Marco Rubio going on a vacation to Cuba.

7. Sarah Palin throwing her gun in the race for president.

8. George Bush saying, “I’m sorry.”

9. Ben Carson just doing surgery on people, not the nation.

10. Chris Christie announcing he will not get a job working on bridges.

Donald Trump Says It Right!

Donald Trump has aroused the interest of many Republicans in New Hampshire. Here is what they say:

Janice: “He says it like it is.”

Andrew: “He’s willing to tell you his opinion.”

Donald: (not the Trump one): “He speaks the truth.”

Nick: “He expressed our sentiments and frustrations.”

Donald: “I am who I am. So there!”

Me: “Without you, Donald, what could I write each day!”

God: “Donald, please stay there, I want to keep my throne.”

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS
