HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cheap Work For Sale”

The never ending mantra of American business.

France, Connexion: “Uber Executive Stands Trial”

I assume he used a taxi to get to court.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Psychotic Leader”

This definitely is one role Donald Trump can play,

Russia, Moscow Times: “Golden Toilet Seat”

Fit only for the Great Leader, Putin!

Japan, Japan Times: “Apologize For Oral Crime”

Let me suck on this one.

Moments To Cherish

The coming months will be filled with interesting events on our political scene. Following are some moments that will fill me with joy.

1. Rotund Chris Christie shouting, “When I mean something, I mean it!”

2. Mike Huckabee getting on his knees to pray to God.

3. Carly Florin on a stage with fifteen men. This definitely makes her come across as beautiful.

4. Ted Cruz appearing wrapped in the Confederate flag.

5. Rick Perry standing next to Rick Santorum which makes it impossible to know which of the Ricks is speaking.

6. Jeb Bush at some moment discussing George Bush.

7. George Pataki just standing there looking like George Pataki.

8. Donald Trump shouting, “I AM the one God desires, I paid him money for the endorsement!”

9. Any words uttered by Ben Carson, at least he adds some color to the event.

10. The custodian of the place who just wandered onto the platform to clean it.

Jeb Stands In Front Of Bush!

Theere is good news in America today. Jeb Bush has decided to offer his profound insights to the American People with promises that once another Bush is in place, security and prosperity will return to this land just as it did the last time we supported having a Bush in hand. Jeb noted that the “progressive agenda” has demonstrated failure. Yes, he is right. There are now 12 million Americans who have lost the opportunity to utilize the Emergency Room and are condemned to go to a doctor’s office! Jeb noted that as Governor of Florida he cut taxes. As I recall, his brother cut taxes and we went from a debt of about $3 trillion to one that was nearly ten trillion when he left office.

Oh well, Jeb continues insisting that our beloved Wall Street folks have only one thought in mind–how to trickle down jobs and wealth to those below. OK, so thanks to the other Bush we now have half those who graduate from college unemployed,underemployed or living with dad and mom. See, Jeb believes in family values. A family that lives together and prays together is jut one group of happy folk. They devote Sunday to offering prayers for the health and welfare of those who work on Wall Street.

Rick Is For Veterans

Former Governor Rick Perry has promised that the old days of stumbling and bumbling are no longer part of his political approach. He has promised to present the new Perry, a man of action, a man of ideas, a man who has studied politics and economics in order to make certain that he will no longer lose track as to who is in the Cabinet, let alone exactly where the Middle East is on a map. Unlike Ted Cruz who can only shout and rant, Rick is a man of ideas.

He is in Iowa for some strange reason. I assume he is seeking votes. So, Rick went on a bike ride to raise money for our veterans. After all, what does a veteran need who is suffering from PTSD? Rick knows. HOT DOGS! Rick has been raising money to provide our veterans with free hot dogs. If you want to forget the days of horror, just eat a hot dog and give some thanks to Rick Perry. One veteran, Kim Crow, said “Rick is the only Republican who can unite the party.” From now on to all you who seek jobs, vote Republican and get some hot dogs!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer comments on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

American leaders always accuse others of sponsoring terrorism, how about looking in the mirror?

I wonder if there is a stage that will hold all Republicans seeking the presidential nomination?

With only one woman, Carly Fiorina, we need Sarah Palin back on the stage of stupidity.

I promise to pray for our wealthy folks in order to prove that I am a good American.

Bikers riot and kill, and they are handled without firing a 134 bullets, I wonder why?

Fox News news, white is right, black is bad!

I’m for Bernie Sanders for president

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

It is Monday, someone got shot in Texas, so what is new?

I await a day that does not begin with news of another person deciding to run for the Republican nomination for president.

American politics has shifted from comedy to farce.

I wonder if there was ever a day in the history of this planet when some life form did not die due to violence?

Some are born to die, some to live.

I have a hunch that Jesus just won’t return until guaranteed he will not be shot.

How about resurrecting the body of Ronald Reagan and having it run for president?

The Detainees Are Always Detained

There is something ironic in the conservative assault on President Obama for his faille to “defend the border.” If ons listens to Ted Cruz until the advent for Barack Obama to the presidency our southern border was free of immigrants seeking to cross it. Of course, during his six years as president, Obama has returned more people to Mexico than President Bush did in eight years. I frequently wonder why those who rant and yell about illegal immigrants never once opened their mouths when thousands crossed the border during the time period, 2001-2008? As you recall, the president at that point was a man called, George Bush. Of course, during the administration of St. Ronald Reagan, he pushed for a law that granted citizenship to illegal immigrants.

Ironically,under the Obama administration,thousands of been placed in detention camps under cruel conditions. Children are being subjected to being in a prison for the crime of being an illegal immigrant. Hell, we are ALL illegal immigrants since our ancestors were NOT invited to reside on this continent. Judge Dolly Gee demanded that the Obama administration should provide opportunities for people to leave these detention camps, live with their relatives or, at least, get opportunities to work and earn money. Just think about this: there are thousands of mothers and children being held in a detention camp under the so-called liberal Obama administration!

Training Good Syrians

The United States government has finally gotten around to instituting a program to train ‘good” Muslims in order to end the war in Syria and allow the good guys to win. About $500 million has been allocated to train and equip about 5000 men who supposedly are to enter Syria and wipe out ISIS, al-Qaeda, and the Syrian government. And, not an American has to be involved in any aspect of this war. Oops, I should not use the word, “war” since all we are doing is “training” people to kill the bad guys. Senator John McCain has called for instituting a “no-fly” over Syrian skies in order to prevent any group from dropping bombs. As he put it: “I don’t think it’s possible to recruit young men to be trained in Jordan or Saudi Arabia or some place and go back in and tell them you’re not getting protected from being barrel bombed. It’s immoral.”

Senator McCain does have a point. The US could impose a no fly policy without great risk to our pilots. But, the real issue is that Muslims must take over training and arming their own fighters without any Americans being involved. They will not be effective fighters unless they believe in the fight. And, Americans can not teach them how to believe!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I assume the main qualification for running for president is to have never taken a science course.

Republicans insist they must end the IRS and increase military spending. I guess Houdini is their main secret weapon.

Oh, for a day in this world without a shot being fired!

We now have two doctors running for president. How about two turtle doves?

There ought to be a law requiring anyone running for president to speak softly.

I so miss the peace of night falling without violence in the world

Just think, in twenty years a Clinton and a Bush running for president!

Just A Ride In A Van

I understand that some folks in Baltimore, Maryland are upset at the cops in their city. I don’t know why these people are in the streets shouting and looting and yelling at the work of our believed police force. So, what actually happened to this guy, Freddie Gray who has caused this problem that currently upsets many folks in the city of Baltimore? First, he looked directly into the eyes of city police, anyone knows that is a major criminal act. Then, he ran away, didn’t this idiot realize that running away from cops is, in effect, a provocation? Of course, if he had run directly at the cops, this would have constituted a direct challenge to their safety and they would have blasted away. Anyway, we now know the cops put Freddie in a van, shackled him but did not place a seat belt to protect his body front the movement of the van.

OK, so the cops decided to play a game, one they have played many times before without causing a civil disturbance. The game is “driving the van in such a way that the prisoner in the back gets thrown around. Heck, this is just like going to a carnival and taking a ride. Apparently during the “rough ride” Freddie was thrown against a bolt and his head suffered some injuries that resulted in his death. I do not understand why so many folks are upset. Are they against rides in a carnival? Oh, some accidents do occur in the carnival, why not in a cop carnival whose goal is simply to give everyone laugh??
