Volunteers For Stupidity

These days the competition for who is the dumbest Republican on this planet gets new contestants by the day. The Arizona Border Recon is watching closely the border with Mexico in order to halt the flood of terrorists who are crossing the border.  Tim Foleg  wants America to know that  “we have pictures from digital  cameras that show Somalis  and Middle Eastern  guys with beards  and everything else , but nobody is listening. We’re going to have something like Paris. Its not a matter of  if, but when.”

I wonder how Tim knows the difference between a terrorist from Somalia and one from Nigeria or, one from Somalia and one from Egypt. Examine the evidence:

1. There are men with beards.

2. There are men who speak a  foreign language.

3. There are men who are sort of swarthy in color.

Who else–but Somalis terrorists!

P.S. Tim, do you even know where the hell Somalia is??


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

Russia, Moscow Times: “Athletes Banned For Taking Dope”

Who else but a dope would take dope?

France, Connexion: “Police Appeal For Bomber Identity”

OK, bomber, turn yourself in, PLEASE!

USA, NY Post: “Police Issued New Guns”

Great, now they can shoot new people.

Sweden, Local: “Town Hall On Fire”

Did anyone see Ted Cruz in the area?

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “I’m A Sane Gun Owner”

I just do insane things.

I realize there are those who believe the West Bank belongs to Jewish Israelis since God, him or her self, gave it to the Jews for eternity. For some reason, God did not give land to other groups, but then again, God only regards Jews as his favorite people. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is offering Palestinians a deal. He is willing to allow Palestinians to build homes on their land as long as Jews get the right to construct homes on Palestinian land. “Palestinians must recognize our right to build settlements.

This is one fantastic offer, you can build on your land and we can build on your land. How could any group turn down a fantastic opportunity like the one offered by Bibi Netanyahu. He is truly a Christian gentleman. I assume Bibi will be offering we Americans a deal, Israel can build in Manhattan Island and Americans can build on Manhattan island. Wow!

Donald’s Incredible Memory!

Donald Trump is sticking by his tale of ‘THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS CHEERING WHEN THE TOWERS WENT DOWN ON 9/11. “I have an incredible memory and I saw a video of them cheering over in New Jersey. As of this point, I simply cannot tell you who made the video or when it was shown, but I have this incredible memory so it must be right.” Other examples of his incredible memory:

1. He saw Lee Oswald actually point the rifle that killed John Kennedy. He WAS there and he DID see this.

2. He actually was in the Ford Theater when Lincoln was shot! He saw it!

3. Donald was at the scene when Ronald Reagan was shot. He DID try to prevent the shooting but someone got in his way!

4. Donald did see Bill Clinton get a blow job from Monica Lewinsky, he just decided not to tell on his buddy.

5. He did see this black dude,Barack Obama enter America from Africa, he was there the day the Obama ship docked in New York City.

Chris Christie On Bravery

As Chris Christie wanders the roads of New Hampshire in quest of votes he is now selling the line that it was he, not Rudy Giuliani who saved New York City in the dark days of 9/11. His story goes something like this:

“I was there on 9/11. I saw the towers coming down and I was furious. I was determined to wipe out those terrorists with my own hands. My best friend, Mike, or maybe it was Phil or whoever, was murdered by those Muslim terrorists and I swore vengeance. I talked with his widow and little children and promised that if I ever became president, those killers would all be killed. My mother died of cancer about this time, she was killed by this terrorist cancer and I promised revenge, and I will get revenge on those murderers.
So, if you want someone who knows all about terrorists, someone who is ready and willing and able to destroy terrorists, just cast your vote for Chris Christie.
Remember I may be slightly overweight but this weight gives me strength to single-handedly wipe out terrorism just as I wiped out terror on the George Washington Bridge!”

Don’t Mess With Vladimir

Vladimir Putin is very angry. A Russian plane flying over Syria somehow drifted off course and wound up on the border of Turkey and Syria. At this point the story becomes a bit confused. Turkish pilots insisted they had attempted to warn the Russians they were now in Turkey but the Russians kept on flying. Turkish fighter planes then shot down the Russian plane.

According to Putin, “our military is doing heroic work against terrorism. But the loss today is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorism. We will never tolerate such crimes like the one committed today.”

As I recall, Republicans are insisting that US planes blast away and pay no attention to Russian planes that are blasting away. How about a war with Russia? After all, General Trump has a PLAN to wipe out the Russians and take over that country!


We offer observations on the human experience from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.


Donald Trump should turn to writing fiction. That’s all he talks about.

At some point, all Americans were refugees.

Such tough talk of war from Republicans who never served in the military.

Talk about ISIS turns Americans away from talk about higher minimum wages.

Bernie Sanders is dead, he simply does not come across as a leader in war.

Who knows what awaits America when fear rums rampant?

I wonder who we next hate when Muslims are not the topic?


I so enjoy the rants of Republican candidates how they will destroy ISIS by bombing or putting all Muslims in jail. Few examine the reasons for the ongoing success of ISIS. Reality is that young men and women are voluntarily seeking to become part of this group. Why?

1. ISIS offers hope of being part of some meaningful experience in a world in which few can obtain this desire.

2. ISIS offers fascinating videos on the Internet of young men doing daring things, young men shouting with glee.

3. The videos capture a spirit of belonging at a time when fewer and fewer feel they belong to any meaningful experience or group.

4. ISIs offers membership in a group of brave young men. Who cares what they are doing, they certainly come across as willing to sacrifice their lives.

5. The post industrial world emphasizes the Self, it does not enable people to feel part of the group. But, being part of the group has been the most important feeling for thousands and thousands of years.

6. Best of all ISIS provides a meaningful way to die.

How Long The Refugees?

They journey on foot, they journey using rubber boats, they journey in trucks while hidden in the back, sometimes they die in those trucks. They are the unwanted, they are the refugees who are wandering around Europe seeking a place of refuge. They are the people who frighten most Europeans because they desire to work, they desire to find a place where their children can actually go to schools without fear of being killed by bombs or nut cases dressed in black who chant death, death, death.

They are the refugees from Syria, from places in Africa, they are the modern wandering Jew. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has promised them a home in her land. We wonder how long this promise will be fulfilled. Already, she is hinting at restrictions, the voices of fear within her land grow louder. Frankly, there are just too many refugees and it is simply a matter of time before she must announce restrictions.

In modern times, the refugee is not a welcome person. Certainly, not when modern people fear terrorists or lack of work. The door will soon be shut.

Donald Will Not Shut Up!

Donald Trump has stumbled on the path to victory– say anything crazy because a significant number of Americans are in an anti-government frame of mind. They are frightened, they are scared, they are convinced their death awaits any moment if a Syrian man, woman or child enters the nation. Donald has mastered the politics of FEAR.
There is no doubt no politician can match his rhetoric of fear and hate. Unfortunately, there is a strong audience for this type of talk.

His latest outburst is about demanding a return to waterboarding. “Would I approve waterboarding? You bet your ass! I would. I would approve more than that. If it doesn’t work, they deserve it.”

The issue is no longer Donald Trump. The issue is the large number of people who are so scared they will even accept a dictatorship if it meant peace and calm. Such is America in 2015.
