Bad News For Republicans

Some very bad economic news was revealed that might upset some member of the Republican party. As Republicans do NOT recall, it was a Republican  president who presided over the collapse of our economy and created the Great Recession. Latest figures indicate the medical US household income rose 5.2%, which is the largest one year gain since 1967. Of course, in 1967. Of course, in 1967, Democrat Lyndon Johnson was president. The unemployment rate is now 5.3% which is much lower than when George Bush left office with an 11% unemployment rate.

Most important in these figures is that for the first time in decades the poorest Americans witnessed the larges percent rise in wages. The percent of Americans in poverty fell from 14.8% to 13.5%. For the first time in memory, the gap between the top 5% of wealthy and the middle class shrank.

Of course, Donald Trump has a PLAN, a great PLAN which will accomplish what already HAS been attained. Vote for Trump if you want another DEPRESSION!

Health Of Hillary Clinton

This entire campaign has been characterized by discussion of non-issues. Remember attacks on Marco Rubio for taking water while speaking? Critics wanted to know WHY he had to take a drink. We witnessed over fifteen investigations of the famous  Benghazi raid which resulted in the deaths of four people. When President Reagan in 1985 sent US Marines to Beirut, Lebanon and 241 were killed by Muslim terrorists, there was not a single investigation by Congress. Not a single Democrat attacked Reagan.

So today, the real issue confronting the American people  is the fact, and it is a FACT that Hillary Clinton was seen coughing. It turns out that she has pneumonia. Naturally, no person could be president who had this life threatening disease. I  await Congressional investigations into the secret of why Hillary Clinton never told the American people that she had this disease! I confess to having coughed numerous times in my life, naturally, this is the reason I never won a Pulitzer prize for my writing. It is a proven fact that anyone who has a cold with a cough is in the initial stage of mental collapse.

Let’s see what comes next:

1. Is it true that Donald Trump won the hot dog eating contest on Coney Island?

2. Is it true that Hillary Clinton requires aid and assistance in handling her hair?

3. It is time to reveal the horrible secret that Hillary Clinton is hiding–she did not clean up her dog’s poop on March 17, 1998! It was just another example of how Hillary Clinton shits on America!

Donald Tump Plans

During the primary debates Donald Trump on more than one occasion said: “I know more than the generals about ISIS.” Last night he was asked about a recent statement in which he said: “I will ask our generals to submit a plan  within 30 days  on how to wipe out ISIS.” When asked which was it–did he have a plan to wipe out ISIS or did he need a plan from the generals”

His response: “I have a plan, its a great plan, and this plan will end ISIS, I will look at the plan of the generals, but I have a  plan, and it is simply a Great Plan, and it will wipe out ISIS.” Naturally, he cannot inform America about his great plan, because if he did so, then ISIS would know about his great plan, and they will…………….

Sometimes, things get confusing when Donald discusses his great plans.

I have received unconfirmed reports that Chris Christie is being asked to submit a  plan to wipe out ISIS. After all, he shut down the George Washington bridge, why can’t he shut down ISIS?


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


John Kerry’s name rarely is heard these days.

Challenge: ask Donald Trump what is a Sunni or a Shiite Muslim.

This election is one characterized by discussion of nonsense.

Notice that Trump no longer speaks about his economic “plan.”

The not standing  Kaepernick is more of an issue in the election than any economic plans.

No question: emotions dominate voting decision.

Hillary Clinton has botched up her entire election by shifting the issues from economics, foreign policy, immigration to-emails.

Republican Nonsense

I devote hours to exploring my Facebook page and responding to people I know, or have never known. It increasingly becomes obvious that most Trump supporters have absolutely NO idea as to what is happening, let alone what happened, in the Middle East during the past decade. So,here are some tips to handle ignorant Republicans:

1. They insist that President Obama had troops leave “too soon” TRUTH: the departure date was set by President Bush.

2. They insist President Obama refused to leave troops. TRUTH: Obama offered the Iraq government 10,000 American troops who would remain and aid the Iraq army. Iraq Prime Minister insisted that any American who committed a crime against an Iraq civilian had to be tried in a sharia court. Naturally, Obama refused.

3. President Obama hates Israel.  TRUTH: Under the Obama administration the state of Israel has received nearly $18 billion in military aid. NO  prior president has allocated the money sent by Obama.

4. Obama refuses to “carpet bomb” Syria: TRUTH: There is NO evidence in any war fought against against guerrilla forces that bombing does any good. How does one “carpet bomb” enemies hiding underground or in caves?

5. American prestige is at the lowest level in the world. TRUTH: During the Iraq war, George Bush was the most hated leader in the world. Actually, today, Americans visiting foreign nations report fear and confusion that any sane nation could have some crazy person like Trump running for leadership.

What Next For Hillary Clinton?

It becomes increasingly clear that the Hillary Clinton campaign is in trouble. Just about every day some new story in which the word, emails, or the words, Clinton Foundation, reveals some stupid decision on her part. Latest is that Bill Clinton had the title of “Chancellor” for some private colleges and  got paid $16 million for allowing his name to be used so people could fleece innocent students. Is there anything this man would not do in order to get money? I DO understand the money went to his Foundation, but it is disgraceful to allow the name of  a president to be  used to raise money.

Frankly, I am disgusted, as are millions. The president’s name should never be for sale. After leaving the presidency, Harry Truman refused on ANY occasion to allow ANY business to use his name to make money. Jimmy Carter has spent the post presidency building homes for the poor or working  for peace in the world. He has never trafficked in selling his name for money. What can the Clintons do?

1. Announce the Clinton Foundation will be placed under the control of a new Board of Directors and neither one of them will be on the Board.

2. List the good things being done by the Clinton Foundation and cut all ties.

Strange Stories In America

Every so  often we encounter an interesting story about life in America which gets our brain thinking. Ivan Ceron was arrested on Long Island for being drunk and driving the wrong way on the Long Island Expressway. It got me thinking:

1. How about getting Donald Trump drunk and sending him in a  truck filled with illegals back to Mexico?

2. How about Donald Trump really getting plastered prior to the debates–most probably, he will be coherent for the first time since he began to run for president.

3. How about Hillary Clinton getting drunk and finally explaining in English the good work being done by the Clinton Foundation to save lives.

4. Why not get everyone at a Trump rally dead drunk. Finally, they will be speaking sense about issue of the day.

5. Could you imagine what a drunk Ted Cruz would say?

6.Gee,I would so love to hear a drunken Bernie Sanders expressing what is in his heart at this moment.

7. The only way to get a Trump surrogate speaking on CNN to express a coherent idea is to get them drunk, and, I mean DRUNK !

8. Of course, getting Bill Clinton drunk would just get the lower part of his body rising to a new sexual occasion.

What I’m Tired Of

The past few weeks have been rather strange with stories concerning God knows what about God knows why events. So, here is my list of stories that belong in a space probe to outer limits of the universe.

1. Emails, we all use them, we all delete them, we all have no idea which email we deleted last month, last week, or one hour ago.

2. Trump and illegal immigrants. We have now heard just about every conceivable position by Donald Trump concerning this issue.

3. Naturally, Benghazi, no one knows where the hell this place is, no one knows, what the hell went on, all they know is somehow Hillary Clinton killed four people, although it is uncertain whether or not she actually pulled the trigger.

4. Muslims, Syrians, Egyptians, Turks, Iraqis, Kurds, Libyans, and any other person from the Middle East who has dark features. You are ALL bad, bad, people.

5. Kardashians, frankly, I have no idea who they are, what they do, but for some reason they are important. OH, throw Beyonce into this boring topic.

6. Obamacare. For some reason providing people without health insurance, some form of health insurance will lead to their deaths. Beats me how or why.

7. Ted Cruz, he crops up on boring days for the media, oh hum, I wonder why he is still around.

8. Who Paul Ryan supports, the story of the ages for Republicans.


Death In Chicago

I have only been a resident in the Chicago area for about two years. I was raised during the 1930s in my beloved Bronx. In those days we had many gangs, a high percent were run by Jews and Italians. They beat up people, they robbed, they demanded protection money, they ran prostitution and gambling, but they did have certain rules of behavior. One never, and I mean,never, attacked a woman, one never hurt a family member of the guy you would murder, and one was careful never to harm children.

I now am in Chicago. In the month of August, 90 people were shot to death. Many were children, many were women simply out at the wrong time in the wrong place. Apparently, what has happened in Chicago is that large gangs disintegrated to small factions which lacked any rules of behavior, no mature men to control behavior of young punks. Ironically, the presence of large organized gangs ensured some control over violence. One guy insults the other, then his friend comes by later in the day and blasts away. Complete and total anarchy in the streets.

There is a world here in Chicago of young men without any job prospects who are left with drugs and crime to ensure some sort of life. So, what to do? At this point, who the hell knows!

The Anti-Trump Speaks

I do  understand there is a red headed man wandering around the United States–with a side trip to Mexico– who yells and screams hatred and violence to all daring to oppose his idiotic statements. However, this intrepid reporter has been able to uncover the unknown secret twin brother of Donald Trump. His name is Dwayne Trump.

Dwayne Trump speaks: “My fellow Americans, and when I say, Americans, I mean those of all religions, those of all ancestry, and even those who are Democrats. We Americans have always welcomed the poor, the persecuted, those fleeing religious intolerance, and we greet them with open arms. This is a nation founded by immigrants–in those days, anyone was automatically a legal one– for immigrants and with love for all. Yes, we Europeans  committed horrible crimes against the Iroquois, the Sioux, and dozens of other people who preceded us in this land.

I want an America in which those with wealth pay a much higher tax than those without. We need to guarantee every young person a free college education, we have to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, we have to educate youth for jobs in the  post industrial world. This can only be achieved if Republicans and Democrats work together.

Please, please never listen to my brother, the bully, Donald!”
