A New War Looming?

It is now fifteen years since American forces invaded an area in the Middle East. Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have resulted in the deaths of over five thousand American troops,and the wounding of over forty thousand. Under leadership of President Bush we plunged into the mess known as the Middle East without any policy,without any goals, we just sent soldiers to fight for something–actually, to this day few who fought have any idea as to the goals of these wars. We fought,we left, we remained, and we still are confused.

American forces have just begun bombing of Houthi forces in Yemen.Why? Ostensibly, because Houthi missiles were fired at a US ship. Of course,the reason for these missiles(none actually hit any US ship) was because American allies–Saudi Arabia and Gulf States–hit a funeral and killed one hundred and wounded four hundred. So,what is the goal of this American attack? What is our foreign policy goal? The only logical outcome is to foster further Houthi attacks and drive this group closer and closer to Iran. In reality, that is the unintended goal of this potential new war!

Angry Americans For Trump

These days there are many angry people in America, most probably, the angriest is Rudy Giuliani. But, central to the anger of Trump supporters is  the belief that America is no longer a Great Nation, and foreign type people are swarming into our beloved land and transforming it into a den of iniquity and evil. Many recall the “good old days” when white males ran the land, and blacks, Hispanics and women knew their place. No blacks were marching in the streets, because if they did, a group of white men dressed in white robes would explain who ran the show, and who was expected to get into the gutter when a white person walked down the street.

They are angry at rise of minority groups to political power. Many also worked in plants producing automobiles or making shirts and pants, or dwelled in our coal mines. Ironically, these same people supported laws that made organizing workers into unions difficult, and the result was that the boss paid low wages and fired at will. They voted for Republican politicians who prevented laws that provided low cost colleges, decent health care, retraining programs  that would enable the displaced coal miner to get a technology job. They voted for Republicans who refused to pass legislation that would create high wage jobs rebuilding our infrastructure.

So, what happened? A high percent of Silicon Valley tech jobs are now filled by people from India,China or Pakistan. The angry people should gaze into a mirror if they want to know how our job situation became as it now is.

General Trump On ISIS

Any intelligent person must admit that Donald Trump is among the Greatest military strategists who has ever lived. Of course, when he had an opportunity to display his military acumen during the Vietnam war, he decided that his skills in combat were better served by fighting the battle of sex in Park Avenue beds. General Trump explained the situation in Syria. “ISIS wants a Hillary Clinton victory. They’ll not only take over that part of the world, they’ll take over this part of the world. That’s why I was so happy to annihilate the enemy.” (Hillary Clinton).

Reality: ISIS has already been driven from 70% of areas in Iraq that were seized. US military estimates that at least 40,000 ISIS soldiers have been killed,  thousands more wounded. Last year ISIS was receiving hundreds of new recruits each week, now, at best, 50 per week. It is estimated that only 15,000 to 25,000 ISIS soldiers are in Mosul, Iraq. The campaign to regain control of Mosul will begin within a few weeks. Once Mosul is captured, the presence of ISIS in Iraq ends.


We offer observations on the human condition from a 26 year old mind, trapped in an 86 year old body.


We await the new Donald Trump,the man who will tell it like it is.

Children love to play in mud, Donald Trump, is just a child at heart.

The greatest issue confronting America is emails!

These days the words one speaks must please other people or you runt he risk of being classified as a racist.

Does any American enjoy this election?

I would not be surprised to see Trump grab Hillary’s throat in the next debate to prove his manhood.

I sometimes cry for America, how did we get to this stage as a society?

Once, there were giants in the land, today, just pygmies.

Trump On War

Each day that Donald Trump pursues his quest for the presidency, it becomes clear that we need his brilliant mind addressing issues of war and  peace. Who can surpass this man when it comes to dealing with ISIS? He has made clear that when he becomes  president, “I will knock the hell out of ISIS. I am  pretty good at dealing with ISIS.” Yes, he is. Examine the record:

1. He got four draft deferments during the Vietnam  war because he wanted to knock the hell out of the Viet Cong.

2. He has never read a book about war or the military which means his mind is clear of the old failed ways fighting ISIS.

3. He brings a clear, fresh perspective on dealing with guerrilla warfare.

4. He wants to bomb guerrilla outfits who are hiding in cities. How, this will result in their defeat, only Donald knows.

5. Donald has absolutely NO idea what constitutes a “division”of soldiers let alone an “Army.” A fresh mind with absolutely NO ideas of how to fight a war.

Once we empower Donald Trump to fight the war against ISIS, rest assured, these cowards will flee in terror. Turn loose General Trump, and there will be no more wars in the Middle East.

Ted Cruz Calls For Trump

We have been given permission to listen as Ted Cruz makes phone calls for Donald Trump.

“Hi,I’m Ted Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Oh, that stuff I said about him during the debates,  heck, I’m  from Texas, you know how we people like to say things.

Hi, I’m Ted Cruz soliciting your vote for Donald Trump. Oh, that stuff about my dad being involved in the killing of John Kennedy, I agree with Donald that I can’t prove he didn’t do it.And, of course this all happened before I  was born.

Hi, I’m Ted  Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Ha, ha, so I said Donald was a liar, and Donald was ignorant. I confess, I have  told some lies in my life, so have you, and I would vote for you!

Hi,I’m Ted Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Oh, that stuff about my wife, OK, so she is not the gorgeous model that Melania is, of course, I can’t say that I am a handsome guy.

Hi, I’m Ted Cruz calling for Donald Trump. Oh, you are some Mexican, I really can not continue  this conversation, after all you  might be one of those drug lords or rapists!”

Things To Blame On Hillary

Republican candidates share one issue regardless of whether they like the other r person or not, Hillary Clinton is responsible for:

1.  Hurricane Matthew, there was no such hurricane prior to her becoming Secretary of State.

2. The New York Mets lost their shot at the playoff, they are from New York, she was the Senator from New York. Do the math.

3. Kim Kardashian did something,and she denies it, so, who else to blame?

4. There is conflict in Iraq, she was a Secretary  of State, that person is responsible for foreign policy. One plus one equals two.

5. Donald Trump lost his temper in the Debate, who other than Hillary caused it?

6. Cops get shot, Hillary Clinton says  bad things about cops,so who else is responsible for their deaths!

7.  Ivanka Trump ended her friendship with Chelsea Clinton, it is the fault of Hillary Clinton.

8. Bill Clinton fucked women, he is married to Hillary, so this proves Hillary fucked women.

9. There was a train wreck in New Jersey, it is now certain the engineer was so angry at Crooked Hillary, that he lost his composure.

10.Now,about the hordes of Mexican rapists and murderers, ……..

What If Jesus Returned?

The other night, having nothing else to do, my mind wandered into the topic of what would Jesus think if he suddenly found himself in the 21st century. After all, the little Jewish Rabbi sort of went underground about two thousand years ago. So, here he is in the year, 2016.

1. I wonder what those buildings are with the name of Christianity? I guess they are named after someone called, Christianity. Gee, sounds a lot like my name.

2. Good Lord, these people seem to really enjoy killing one another.

3. Donald Trump, an interesting red headed man who shouts and insults people because of the color of their skin, gee, I am from the Middle East, I guess he thinks a dark skinned man like me is a rapist.

4. They keep on citing my name as they murder people, how did I  get associated with these murderers?

5. I thought I once made clear my feelings toward the wealthy and how hard it would be for them to get into heaven, honest, I didn’t mean you could buy  your way in.

6. How can I explain that I am a human just like them, honest, I did have a human dad!

7. I feel like crying seeing those pictures of children in ancient Syria being killed, makes me long for the good old days of Egyptian rule.

8. Adam and Eve must feel regrets for what they began.

Good Or Bad News?

Researchers have concluded that we humans do have a limit as to our life expectancy. OK, they recently found a fish of the coast of Iceland who is 245 years old, but it it not human. The oldest person so far on record is Louise Calmet who died in1997 at the age of 122. Consider the impact on we humans if we all could live another fifty years after reaching the age of 90.

1. In the 22nd century there would still be a Ted Cruz to filibuster in Congress.

2. In 2080 when most Americans are not of European descent, Donald Trump will be warning us of hordes of Europeans coming across our border and raping nice innocent Hispanic women.

3. In 2080, the media will be discussing the latest scandal of CROOKED Hillary Clinton who slept with her robot.Or, was it Bill?

4. In 2090, Ben Carson will be standing in front of hospitals selling his books of unimportant statements.

5. Hopefully, Jon Stewart would have returned to the Daily Show.

6. In 2090, the United States would celebrate its 80th year of not being able to pass a single law in Congress.

7. Of course in 2090, Vladimir Putin will be riding horses and shooting bear in the wilds of Siberia while still being president of Russia.


Our Broken Military

Once again Mike Pence went on the attack about our “broken military” which simply lacks money to purchase needed equipment. According to the Trump and Pence view, the military of the United States of America is broken and we have become a Third World nation. Sounds horrible.

1. The American military budget surpasses the military budgets of the next five nations.

2. The US has the best air force in the world.

3. The US has the best Navy in the world

4. The US has the best tanks in the world.

5. The US has the best artillery in the world.

6. The US has the best military supply system in the world.

7. The US has the best armed forces in the world.

8. The US has atomic cannon.

9. The US has atomic bombs.

10. The US has guided missile systems.

11. The US has drone systems.

Beyond these, the US is certainly  in need of more military equipment and systems.
