HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

France, Connexion: “Fake Health Refunds”

At least this is one healthy way to make money.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Must See Attraction”

Trump and Putin together at a press conference.

USA, aol: “Unauthorized Drone Flights”

In the Middle East???

UK,Guardian: “Rich People Don’t Become Soldiers”

So, what’s new about this story?

Sweden, Local: “We Will Run This Country”

The Republican mantra of destruction.

The Carson Factor

The media is upset about Donald Trump as a potential candidate for president. But, the even more bizarre candidate is Doctor Ben Carson. Yes, Carson is a doctor, yes, Carson is of black skin, yes, Carson lacks any understanding of what is necessary within the United States, let alone the world. I doubt if he could even identify the location of Syria. I doubt if he could conduct a conversation, logical, illogical, about any issue in foreign affairs. But,this nincompoop is now the second choice in Iowa among Republican voters. What does this say about the condition of politics in the United States? How did we arrive at a point in history when someone lacking ANY knowledge of conditions in our society or the world is now the second choice among Iowa Republicans?

1. Carson appeals to those who hate Obama and what better way to display the hatred than to support a black candidate?

2. Carson, like Trump, is the anti-politician, so why not elect someone who is completely non-political and ignorant?

We Americans are lost in anger and ignorance!

Wisconsin Milk

Scot Walker is a Republican. Scott Walker has a hero named Donald Trump. Scott Walker wants a high, high wall built on the border with Mexico, heck, he even wants one built on the Canadian border a– all three thousand miles long. Scott Walker has taken a stand against immigrants, and wants them to quit taking jobs away from Americans. He wants an “immigration system that works. I don’t think you do it with amnesty.”

There is one slight problem for Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. According to the Wisconsin Dairy Association about HALF THE WORKERS ON FARMS ARE IMMIGRANTS! According to dairy farmer John Rosnow, his anti-immigrant proposal would “put most farmers in the state out of business.”

Oh, well, Scott broke unions and now he will break farmers!

Jobs To China

The Republican party has moved from the important issue of the African birth of Barack Hussein Obama to the more important issue of how the black dude is behind the flight of jobs from America to China, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and, naturally, Mexico. It is slightly unclear how actions of an American president result in jobs leaving America and heading for China, but, what the heck, it sure sounds scary.

1. AMERICAN BUSINESS LEADERS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ESTABLISH FACTORIES IN CHINA AND HAVE CHINESE PEOPLE BUILD THEIR PRODUCTS.

2. American business leaders obtain cheap labor in other nations.

3. American business leaders just want low wages and they will go with that is found.

4. American business leaders are even locating their headquarters in foreign lands to escape taxes in the US.

5. Donald, American business leaders increasingly use robots for work. Soon, they will return their business establishments to America and forget about people, American, Chinese, Thai,etc..

Female Trump Speaks

On occasion I become somewhat confused when Republican discuss issues of world importance. Sarah Palin ran on the ticket with John McCain for the presidency in 2008. As I recall, she embraced McCain as a great man and a born leader. Donald Trump insulted a war hero whose name is John McCain and the woman who ran with McCain now raves about the wonderful Trump man! “Voters crave the anti-status politician. They want results. They need someone who will fire all the politically correct police. Everything about Donald Trump is avant garde.

These comments are so incredibly insensitive toward a man who lifted Palin from being an unknown governor into a major political figure. How low can this woman sink?

Are Women On Fox News Bimbos?

I rarely find myself in a situation in which Donald Trump is the only one making intelligent comments,but when he is,let me come to his defense. Donald referred to the blond woman named Megyn Kelly as a bimbo. She is very upset,Fox News is very upset,but Donald certainly is not. So,here is a defense of the Donald man.

1. A basic requirement for a woman to be on Fox News is blond hair.

2.A requirement for these blonds is the ability to read the cue cards. Dark haired women are not able to handle this level of intelligence.

3.A female must have ample sized boobs. This is what leads to expressions such as bimbo.

4. The woman must display shinny white teeth.

5. The woman must swear allegiance to the wise man who runs Fox News. As of this point I do not have a clue as to how the decision is made to hire which of the blond bimbos.

6. I wonder why Donald only marries gorgeous women.I assume they all possess a Ph.D.

7. Donald is willing to stack his wife’s boobs up against Megan any day in the year!

Texas Death Beat

America remains among the few post industrial nations in which the death penalty is a norm.Of course, within the United States there is one state which leads the pack,and can anyone doubt that piece of territory is known as–TEXAS. The land in which one can carry a gun to church, to eat, to play is the land in which more people are executed than any other. Bernardo Tercero entered a store in order to do a bit of robbing. At this point the story gets murky. Somehow he wound up in a struggle and shot a man.

Mr.Tercero is by most standards an individual of limited natural intelligence. But, this is Texas. And, in Texas when your skin is of the dark hue, what else but death awaits. I can guarantee if he was a white millionaire, the struggle would have led to a sentence, but not one entailing death. Many Hispanics have been urging that he be sent to jail, not to death. The Texas Supreme Court ordered a halt to the execution. But, this is Texas, the land of violence. Just make certain when you blast away, your skin is white.

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

The more I listen to the 17 voices, the more I want to listen to Mitt Romney.

Scott Walker would kiss the butt of Sheldon Adelson for a buck.

What ever happened to Rand Paul?

It is simply a matter of time before Sarah Palin enters this race.

There is no doubt among Republicans the drought was caused by Barack Obama.

How about asking Bibi Netanyahu to run for US President?

Donald will never stop being Donald. Republican nightmare?
