Whatever Happened To?

I was born in 1930 and thus had the opportunity to live during the administrations of a few American Presidents. I miss some of their behaviors in the year 2014.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO?

A President like Harry Truman who had on his desk the motto of his theory of being President: “The Buck Stops Here!”

Mail being delivered twice a day–during the Depression.

About 36% of workers belonging to unions.

Free colleges for poor people–we had four in New York City.

A President who weekly held press conferences and allowed reporters to pose impertinent questions.

A New York Yankee team that won the world series.

Children played without parents being present.

Children who made their own toys.

The list could go on and on.

Do You Have ADH4?

For many years I have wondered why Republicans so readily become drunk with power and go wild shouting words that have no relationship to reality. Say the word, OBAMA, and any supporter of the Republican party begins to stumble for the ability to express a clear idea. They are simply unable to allow coherent words to leave their lips. Finally, I have uncovered the reason for this incoherence. Scientists, just remember that any Republican will quickly mumble, “I am no scientist,” have uncovered the secret as to why some folks readily get drunk while others can hold their liquor. It turns out that hundreds of thousands of years ago some folks developed the digestive enzyme ADH4 which enables the person to break down alcohol in their digestive system and go on with a normal life. However, gorillas and Republicans lack this enzyme and once alcohol enters their tummy, they feel pain and nausea.

The hope for America is that Republican congressmen do not take a drop of alcohol. If we can keep Republicans sober than there is a possibility they a few coherent laws may be passed. Now, you know why lobbyists take Republicans out for a lunch and give them alcohol to drink!
