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.


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


Americans in 2015 respond to refugees as Americans responded to Jews fleeing Nazism.

American politicians so enjoy pretending they are brave warriors.

Not a single person running for president among the top Republican candidates ever wore the uniform.

Gee, imagine General Trump leading men into battles?

I assume Ben Carson has someone on his staff who shows him where Syria is on the map.

Then again, Carly Fiorina is ready for combat–verbal, that is.

Republicans need Rick Perry, at least he was once a soldier.


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

Australia,Canberra Times: “Gunmen Gets 300 Years”

Any chance for time off for good behavior?

UK, Guardian: “Back Same Sex Marriage”

Hopefully, one day, in the Catholic church.

USA, NY Post: “McDonald’s Gunman Dies”

Oh,them french fries.

Germany, Der Spiegel: “Secret To Longevity”

Don’t die?

Norway, Norway Post: “Return Of Vikings”

So, what’s new–plunder, rape, pillage!


We offer samples of headlines from the world press along with our comments.

Thailand,Bangkok Post: “Abbot Found Dead In Temple”

Hopefully, on his knees with hands folded in prayer.

Egypt, al-ahram: “Hunt More Suspects”

Forever more, forever more in the land of Egypt.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Oldest Fuck Word”

This is simply one fucking boring story.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Air Strikes Kill Civilians”

The object of an air strike is to KILL –someone.

UK, Guardian: “Let’s Trump Donald”

Sorry, Donald is trumping the Republic an field!

If Carly Fiorina Became President

Carly at initial Cabinet meeting.

“OK, it is time to demonstrate some good old American initiative. I think we can get a good deal by purchasing Swaziland. We offer any Hispanic immigrant an all expenses paid job in this African nation–which, of course will now become our latest purchase. I bet Donald will be jealous as hell when I show the country how to end our immigration problem.”

Meet with Joint Chiefs of Staff. “OK, let’s get some boots on the ground in Iraq and Syria. look,any boots will do,how about the illegal immigrants, if they want to remain here, it is only fair for them to fight for this country.”

Carly to Republican congressional leaders: “I want action. Make clear to congressmen that if the fail to do the job, they no longer have one. Make clear this tough broad will not tolerate lazy bums!”

Carly to Attorney General: “So, is Hillary yet in jail? What the hell is going on, send her to prison,she contradicted me!”

Some Rosebury Folks Happy

Every time there is a shooting and some folks get killed, we can thank God some people retain a sense of calm and decorum in the midst of hysteria by those who seek to stamp on the US Constitution. The owner of the Rosebury Gun Shop shouted the good news that always accompanies shootings and killings. “I’ve just ordered some more ARs(assault rifles). There’s always a rush on them after a big shooting. We can’t keep the stuff on the shelves.” There is now a cardboard cutout of President Obama with a sign saying: “Gun Salesman Of The Year.”

I do not believe those opposing the right to own a gun and kill people grasp the economic importance of shootings. If you would step back from anger and examine the economic importance of a few gun deaths, you might change your mind. Consider such shootings as the recent one in Oregon as simply a job-creating exercise to restore economic health to this nation.

I guess those liberals opposing guns want to keep gun deaths in the hands of those Mexicans and deprive native born Americans from helping this nation to prosper!

Donald Is Angry

Donald Trump is angry because his enemies in the Republican Party are out to get him and deny his right, yes,his right, to become President of the United States of America.Latest poll numbers show that he is leading the pack with that great American Ben Carson, right behind. Figures indicate:

Donald with 21%

Carson with 20%

Carly with 11%

Marco with 11%.

Ben Carson has to be the most ignorant person EVER to run for president of this nation. Yes, Donald, you have the right to be angry. He is the ONLY person who makes you come across as an intellectual who has knowledge of world affairs. Yes, Donald, Fox News coverage is “dishonest.” What has happened to America with such people being supported to run for the presidency??

Watch Out For Men In Wheelchairs!

Scarcely a day goes by without some strange tale about police confronting people with guns–or at least cops thought they had one, and the story always concludes with the person charged with threatening police dead from bullets fired by police. In Wilmington, Delaware, Jeremy Dole was sitting in his wheelchair when somehow, in some bizarre manner, he wound up being confronted by police ordering him to lay down a weapon else. There were at least four cops confronting the man in his wheelchair. At this point, the story becomes murky, we do know that cops were shouting–at the same time– for Mr. Dole to lay down his weapon of mass destruction.

Shots were fired.

1. Mr.Dole died of bullet wounds.

2. A bystander said Mr.Dole looked confused.

3. Why did four police have to immediately utilize guns and blast away?

4. Did anyone consider leaving him in the wheelchair,surrounding him,and quietly asking him to drop the weapon?

Why, why, must the first response be firing away?

How To Save Black Lives

There is a group called Black Lives Matter which is committed to the proposition that getting involved in the dirty business of politics is beneath the dignity of those who know what is true, and if you do not agree with them, they will not play with you. Alicia Garza of the group made clear that Black Lives Matter will not take a stand in the upcoming election since all people currently seeking the presidency do not meet their standards of honesty and commitment to black people.

There are always the “pure in heart” who do not believe anyone meets their standards of honesty or commitment. Great black leaders were politicians as well as being a Negro or whatever expression you desire to employ. Martin Luther King was a great politician who worked to gather together diverse leaders and unite them in the pursuit of equality in America.

Yes, BLM, the goals he sought have yet to be achieved. But, there is one thing that is certain-remain out of the political arena,and they never will be accomplished. It is a moral fight, and it is a political fight, and it is an economic fight.
