We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

In my childhood I ate what mom set upon the table.

I miss standing in line for cheap tickets to New York Giant football games.

Study the past in order to understand your future.

Children love studying menus.

I am grateful for what I have and do not worry about what I do not have.

The noise of war these days overwhelms the silence of peace.

In any group, people pair off.

I do not gamble with Death.

One should never abandon the sense of humor.

Some slip one leg under body, I cannot.

China, China Daily: “Should Schools Have Dress Codes?”

Absolutely, children can not come to school naked!

France, Connexion: “Maniac Gendarme”

He roams the streets arresting gendarmes?

Australia, Canberra Times: “Senate Defector”

Hey man, if you had to listen of Ted Cruz ramble on about immigrants, why not head for Mexico?

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Tiger On Loose near Paris Disneyland”

OK, he lacks francs to enter, just let the tiger in, who would know the difference?

Russia, Moscow Times: “New War On Terrorism”

Just capture Putin and end terrorism in Russia!

Obama Shows Some Balls!

It is now clear that Barack Obama has interpreted the recent election as proof that most Americans favor his policies and they deliberately voted for Republicans in order to stir up the blood of Barack. First, he signed an historic environment deal with China, he is edging closer to an historic deal over nuclear weapons with Iran, and he may veto any bill that allows oil to flow from Canada. Of course, he has also made clear that he will protect Hispanic immigrants by allowing about five million to have temporary status in the US. So, what happened to the dude who fucked up health care, who was confused about handling Ebola and could not even protect the White House from lunatics? Let me explain:

1. Since Obama was born and bred in Africa he contacted a witch doctor who has granted him super natural powers.

2. The witch doctor has now placed a curse on Republicans, you will shortly see them collapse in hysteria.

3. Watch for the appearance in Iraq of a new super hero named, BO!

If I was Mitch McConnell or John Boehner, I would check anything I drink very carefully. And, above all do not gaze into the eyes of Obama!

China, China Daily: “Chinese Officials Charged With Graft”

I never knew that taking graft was wrong. After all, they run the entire government.

France, Connexion: “Ferry Hits Wall”

We are able to report the wall is in fine shape and will recover.

UK, Guardian: “More Storms On Way”

You ain’t seen nothing yet until this Republican Congress gets started helping the wealthy!

Australia, Canberra Times: “Sex At 72″

Frankly, not much since it is hard getting you know what, up!

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “91 Year Old Dead Woman Awakens”

Did FDR Win the election??

LET’S PRETEND

Sometimes, my mind enters the world of, what if:

1. What if 80% of Americans voted?

2. Wealthy people paid at the same tax rate as the middle class?

3. Fast food workers got paid $20 an hour so they could buy consumer goods?

4. The Supreme Court ruled a candidate for President had to be born in America. Good bye Ted Cruz!

5. Obama held weekly press conferences and talked with Americans.

6. Obama appointed a Republican as Attorney General?

So much for pretend, unfortunately, I live in reality!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Death means you cannot discuss your death with others.

Table of senior at McDonald’s means at least one brought donuts.

Tall blond woman wearing boots, definitely gets my attention.

Modern lunch with family means it is a meeting of iPads.

I wonder if they have a buffet in heaven.

In every end there is a new beginning.

Barack Obama is the great Miscommunicator.

Nurses enjoy patients who laugh.

Some days I think God took the detour.

Death In Mexico

It has become a normal attitude to define the Muslim religion as suffering from some sort of deficit when it comes to murder. Americans go wild with fury when ISIS Muslims chop off heads, and even liberals like Bill Maher blame these actions upon the Muslim religion. He is constantly insisting the Muslim religion sanctions murder of the innocent. Christian Mexican drug lords have murdered an estimate 50,000 people over the past five years. Yes, Bill, these murderers are members of the Catholic Church that you so despise. Forty three Mexican college students disappeared after they complained about the actions of a mayor. For weeks the media has reported the “disappearance” because no one knows what happened to them.

Well, we now know. Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karem is convinced that fragments of bodies found near a river must be the boys. Initial reports indicate that a drug gang allied with the mayor killed the boys, set up huge funeral pyre that burned for hours and the bodies were placed in this gruesome finality of life. The next time Americans complain about the Muslim religion being prone to atrocious murders just remember the Christian Mexican drug lords and the Christian mayor of a small town.

Oh, and never forget that Nazis were Christians!

Canada, Toronto Star: “I Will Miss Him”

Say, whatever happened to Barack Obama?

China, China Daily: “Strengthen Graft Fight”

Never abandon the right to get a bit of graft, why else get elected?

France, Connexion: “Ruling On Flight Delays”

Yes, they are legal!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

I will fight for justice today and tomorrow!

Sweden, Local: “Stockhold Therapy Tax”

If only we had such a therapy tax in America for members of Congress!

Back Off Obama On Immigration

It has become increasingly clear that President Obama lacks knowledge about American history. He needs some old time Irish politicians around him instead of his Chicago buddies who inhabit a world apart from the daily lives of Americans. I suggest that he get a friend to just drive around America, halt in diners and talk with people about their daily lives. The President has thrown down a challenge to Republicans that he will act on immigration. A few months ago when asked about his strategy for ISIS, he responded: “I don’t have one.” Barack Obama must learn to shut his mouth! If you lack a strategy, simply say, “we are close to reaching decisions about deploying Americans but will not do so until we are certain to avoid deaths of our military.” Obama has the power to use his executive power to handle the immigration situation. But, now is NOT the time to do it. What should be his strategy?

1. Inform Republican leaders that he awaits their solutions to the problem and will not do anything until they first have had an opportunity to come up with a plan.

2. Arrange to meet with Republican leaders and ask them to inform him of their plans.

3. Hold weekly press conferences and arrange for the media to ask him about immigration reform. Respond that he awaits Republican action.

4. There are times to be silent and just wait and watch.

5. Do not issue threats.

6. On September 1, 2015 announce that he has waited a year and must now issue an executive decision.
