Conversation With Ben Carson Alter Ego

I decided to engage in a conversation with the Alter Ego of Ben Carson.

M: So, what’s it like being the Alter Ego of Ben Carson?

AE: Fred, how the hell can I be an alter ego of a guy who just ain’t got much ego in the first place?

M: So, you have some problems?

AE: Problems! For God’s sake the other night he wouldn’t even go out on the stage but hung back watching everyone else walk right past him! This is not only quiet man, but a man in search of who the hell he is.

M: I sort of feel sorry for little Bennie Carson.

AE: Sorry for  him? How about showing some sorrow for me! Damn it,  He just mumbles and stumbles through life and all we hear is about  God and how he is a great surgeon. Hell man, this guy doesn’t even know where the hell Mexico is!

M: So, what’s the future of the real Ben Carson?

AE: For me, I would so love to go back to cutting up bodies. At least when he is cutting bodies the man has some ego!

Conversation With Chris Christie

We decided to discuss the Chris Christie campaign with the candidate himself.

M: So, Governor, what really is your view about Marco Rubio?

C: We in the great state of New Jersey know a punk when we see one. That twerp could not last a single day if he was in a New Jersey town with some tough guys hanging around the corner. He has the backbone of a chocolate eclair!

M: Those are tough words from one tough guy. What’s your take on this Cruz guy?

C: A Bible thumping bag of bull shit if you ask me. Every other statement from this punk is about asking God for His blessing. I guess the next thing he will claim is to be the Pope. Oh, I forgot, he switched from being a Catholic to being  God fearing two gun son of a bitch from Texas!

M: I must ask, what is your take on the Donald man?

C: Just one day, just one day, I would like to see him pull that bull shit when in a room with the Mafia crowd.  Just one look from a Mafia Don and Donald would run from the room while pissing in his pants and never turn back. He is full of hot air and he  thinks bullying Jeb Bush is what he could do with a real Mafia soldier. Just try it, Donald, just try it. We will pick up your body in the nearest river that night!

M: I’m curious, what is your take on Bernie Sanders?

C: Oh, you mean the Jew fella. A nice Jewish man who should spend his time in the park playing chess with the other white haired old guys. Frankly, I have no idea what he really wants, and I doubt that he does.

Conversation With Rubio’s Alter Ego

There is considerable evidence if the debates reveal anything about the candidates that Marco Rubio has a set list of thoughts and words to express. We thought it might be beneficial to discuss him with his alter ego-the other Marco, you know, the reverse Rubio.

M: So, tell me Alter Marco, how would you describe your political thoughts on what must be done in this nation?

AE:  This election is about the Hillary Clinton emails, it is about the great tragedy  in Benghazi, it is about how Hillary Clinton is simply a female version of Barack Obama and they seek to destroy the very fabric of our society.

M:  That sounds very similar to what the real Marco Rubio says at each debate. Are you telling me that his alter ego has the same script?

AE: This election if about Hillary Clinton emails, it is about the tragedy of Benghazi,  it is about the buddy of Barack Obama, and it is about their plan to destroy the very basis of our society.

M: Gee, what you just said is what you just said a few moments ago.

AE: If you check both statements you will find different words used. How can it be a  script if I change some words?

M: So, I gather that you really don’t like any Democrat?

AE: This election is about Hillary emails and the debacle at Benghazi when she allowed over three Americans to die.  Emails and Benghazi are what is most troubling Americans and Marco Rubio will not allow liberals to silence his voice of reason!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Each day in America some political leader shouts, his message is the shout.

Ben Carson always looks so forlorn on the stage as he is ignored by all.

John Kasich offers some interesting thoughts, but he continues to shout them.

I gather Carly Fiorina is upset at being left off the stage. Now, why would she be left off?

Jeb is throwing a few punches. The question is have they hit somebody?

I so miss the ironic comments of Rand Paul.

Has anyone thought of contacting Mitt Romney?

Donald Is The Man

Tomorrow America will know if Donald Trump is still the Man. He has defied “experts” for over six months who repeatedly insisted that his campaign of shouting and demanding and insisting would soon be met with fatigue on the part of Americans, but here it is February 8, 2016 and the Donald man is still Number One in the hearts of Republicans. Why?

1. His opponents are either recycled politicians such as Mike Huckabee or the stumbling and bumbling Jeb Bush.

2. Americans are angry and filled with confusion so  many seek the voice of someone who, at least, claims to know what is wrong and how it can be fixed.

3. Donald is a master in claiming to know how to fix anything. OH, he has a GREAT PLAN. And, the gullible and frightened American public buys into this bombast.

4. So, he definitely is THE MAN.

5. Ironically his main opponent at this moment is a white haired man who claims to know how to fix all problems–Bernie Sanders.

We live in the age of shouting and screaming. Definitely, the way to solve our problems. Then again, has ANY politician really identified the “problems” and how to solve them??

Chris Christie Is Mad!

Chris Christie is a heavy set man, he is rather hefty and knows how to throw his weight around. It is best that when Chris gets upset, that any normal person make certain they are nowhere in his vicinity. The other night at the Republican debate, Chris sort of got sore at Marco Rubio. He accused Marco of having the same set message regardless of the time day or night. It sort of goes something like this:

“My parents are immigrants from Cuba who came to this great nation and worked themselves up. I love America. I love Iowa. I love the Republican party and I sure love  the dough that comes with running for president. The real enemy of America is NOT ISIS. The real enemy of America is Hillary Clinton. She is the  one responsible for Benghazi! The infamy of Benghazi is the worst disaster in American history and when I become president, the first person headed to jail is Hillary Clinton! OK, Pearl Harbor caused a few more deaths, but the deaths at Benghazi were ordered by Hillary Clinton. Elect me and send Hillary Clinton to prison!!”

I think that Ben Carson believes ISIS is a skin rash.

With God  at his side, Ted Cruz is heading for the final battle of life.

Looks like John Kasich has taken votes from Jeb Bush in New Hampshire.

We need an early primary in a large state like New York or Illinois or California.

Some follow NBA box scores but in Chicago people follow crime death scores.

The real Republican question is what does Donald Trump do if Marco Rubio gets the nomination., Go quietly into night?

Strange quiet from Vladimir Putin but lots of noise from Russian bombs in Syria.

Am I the only one in America who does not know who or care what the Kardashians are?

Super Bowl is a super time to bash in heads and bodies.

Since 9/11 only 45 Americans died from terrorist attacks in the US, each month in Chicago, 50 die from violence. So, who REALLY is the threat?

Political promises of the spring turn into old dreams after the election.

I think God is on an extended vacation from visiting planet Earth.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Sometimes Jeb Bush looks like a little boy who just saw his toy get broken.

I so miss the ironic comments of Rand Paul.

One day Donald Trump will actually discuss a single plan in detail. That  would end his candidacy.

One day Marco Rubio will admit his parents left Cuba BEFORE Castro came to power.

Imagine the impact on this election when Rick Santorum endorses your candidacy!

From now on all Republican debates should be held in churches.

Is Carly Fiorina still alive?

So, What Can Hillary Do?

The candidacy of Hillary Clinton is confronting some serious issues. She continues to emphasize her “experience” when large numbers of young people detest the word, “experience.” They, along with many Americans, want someone who does NOT have any experience because past experience is what got us into the current mess. Let me suggest to Hillary Clinton:

1. Focus on what must be done tomorrow.

2. Emphasize that she wants NEW approaches.

3. Instead of a “revolution” emphasize a New Deal Deal.

4. Be specific about issues such as Student Loan. For example, a president could lower the interest rate on loans.

5. Offer a Rolling Reform plan that would occur over a period of five or ten years.

6. Address the issue  of visas granted to highly educated foreign workers who are taking jobs from highly trained American educated workers.

Bernie Wants It All

The essence of the Sanders foreign policy is that American troops must never become involved in any aspect of “nation building.” He has a hard time envisioning a situation in which  the use of military force would be used.  After the debacle of Iraq and the horror of what is going on in Syria, it is difficult to  disagree with that point of view. The question posed is: “are there any situations in which America would employ military force?”

In the real world, a president  has to be prepared to use our military. Frankly, I do not know if that situation would be in the Middle East or some place else. A different question might be: “What type of military force could be used in the Middle East?

1. At present we are using our air force.

2. We are using Special Forces–small groups of highly trained soldiers.

3. We are sending members of the military  to train the Iraq army.

None of the above would lead to what happened in Iraq.
