See Bernie Run……

I do like Hillary Clinton and most likely will vote for her next year, but for the coming months it is wonderful to have Bernie Sanders in the race. He drew a crowd of 10,000 in Madison, Wisconsin and people were happy to actually hear a Democrat politician expressing liberal ideas. Bernie is for a single pay health insurance scheme like most civilized nations possess. He wants much higher minimum wage laws,he actually believes that America once again can build roads and bridges, reconstruct our decaying infrastructure, and create jobs that pay decent wages. Oh,he even wants to raise taxes.

In the 1950 when income was rising both for the wealth and workers at the same rate, the top income tax was: NINETY PERCENT! And, the economy was booming!

Alas, Bernie is a summer delight who will disappear at the arrival of winter.But,it is sure fun having this golden moment of liberalism.

Why I Will Vote For Donald?

I understand the Jon Stewart and others poke fun and ridicule at Donald Trump,but this blogger wants the Donald Man to become our next president. Why?

1. He definitely will “tell it as it is.” No more secrets in Washington D.C.

2. He will be the first red headed president.

3. At least everyone in both parties agrees that he does not make sense. Thus, the beginning of political cooperation.

4. He definitely will get Hispanics to realize they MUST vote.

5. He definitely will get women to VOTE.

6. We finally will have a president who is dumber than those in Congress.

7. After Trump, Americans will finally understand the need to become interested in politics.

8. His presidency will create a job boom for comedians.

9. I doubt if any ISIS leader would enjoy being anywhere near Americans with this nut case who makes them come across as normal.

So, vote for Donald!

Mouth That Always Roars

The ultimate nightmare for Republicans has emerged. Donald Trump has hit the campaign trail with a thundering entry that,for the moment, has shaken the entire Republican campaign. NO, he will not win the nomination, but for the following seventeen months, this mouth that can never be silenced, and this crude, bombastic candidate has the money and time to cause havoc within the Republican search for a leader. Republicans have created the monster by a non-stop campaign to vilify any who dare oppose them. Instead of cooperating and working with Obama to secure laws that made sense, they could not shut up in uttering their hateful words. In Republican normality, say anything, shout hate and anger, and what eventually appears-Donald Trump?

Paul Begala is a Democrat who frequently appears on CNN to offer analysis. He now is sharing his latest analysis. “I am a person of faith– and Donald’s entry into this race can only be attributed to the fact that the Lord is a Democrat with a sense of humor.” Ted Cruz proved his point-“Donald was terrific.” None thing else to add.

ONLY IN AMERICA

Every so often having nothing better to do in my life, I make lists as to why America is such an exceptional nation.

1. We are the only industrial nation that does not have paid leave for those having babies.

2. We rank God knows where in our fast trains.

3. We are the only nation that has God on our side.

4. We have absolutely no interest in our infrastructure.

5.We definitely lead the world in the number of peoples seeking the nation’s top job.

6. We are the birth place of Donald Trump, trump that,I dare you!

7. We definitely lead the world in possession of guns. Take that,ISIS!

8. We lead the world in the number of people in prison.

9. We lead the world in the number of people killed by guns.

10.We definitely will not be the place that Jesus comes to when he returns.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Mystery Man”

The guy who places his name in the sweepstakes for the Republican nomination.

Sweden,Local: “Coming Up Short”

I do not think 16 candidates for the presidency are sufficient choices for America.

France, Connexion: “End Mixed Marriages”

Do not allow males to marry female horses?

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Golden Toilet Seat”

Definitely the only one that Donald Trump would sit on.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cheap Work For Sale”

The only kind allowed in America.

Who CaresAbout Environment?

Just about any article that includes any reference to Justice Anthony Scalia includes a line about his wonderful mind that allegedly is the hallmark of this brilliant legal scholar. Justice Scalia wrote the majority opinion in a decision dealing with efforts to curb pollution. The Environment Protection Agency has been seeking to impose limits as to how business enterprises can pollute. Justice Scalia used the argument that imposing such regulations would impair profits of business. In other words any equation dealing with pollution must take care not to impose restrictions as to how much business enterprises can earn in profit.

This from a man who claims to be a legal scholar. If the issue is preserving this planet,then profits be damned! The only equation worth a damn these days is the one which places survival of the planet first and first and first!

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

My dream is to hear the conversation between God and Donald Trump.

The Republican nightmare is having Trump on a stage with other presidential candidates.

There is no question that Donald Trump is the Christmas gift to all gag writers.

I wonder how Donald talks with his children?

Does Donald say, “I trump you” while playing cards?

I would so enjoy hearing a conversation between Trump and Justice Scalia.

I assume Donald is the one who says, “God Bless You.” That is, to God.

Donald Is Upset

There are moments when I would so wish to be a bug who resides inside the head of Donald Trump in order to grasp the working of a mind that is intent on winning the nomination for president. The other day he informed America that hordes of Mexicans were swarming over the border and “they are bringing drugs, crime and rapists” into our fair nation. NBC reacted with vengeance and made clear to the Trump man that his services were no longer needed and he could pack up his Mss America and Miss Universe events and no longer come to their TV studios. “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are the cornerstone of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statement by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationships with Mr. Trump.”

This is shocking news for those who believe in the Trump man.I strongly support the efforts of Donald Trump to run for president. Just imagine, each day he is in the race, anyone writing about politics has a material for comic comments. Of course, the Donald Man is upset at the “weak and foolish” ideas of NBC. OH,and Donald wants all them rapists and drug lords to know that “I love Mexican people.”
