Defenders Of America

Among the non-stop complaints of Republicans is failure on the part of Barack Obama to defend America against terrorism. Shootings in California have repeatedly been cited as examples of the weak, soft Obama policies which allow terrorists to exist within our midst armed and ready to murder innocent Americans.

A few weeks ago an armed terrorist group seized control of the Masher national wildlife refuge and threatened American law enforcement officials, but once again the cowardly Barack Obama refused to use force to end this terrorist threat to our survival as a nation. I guess Obama finally heard those voices demanding action against terrorists.The FBI and Oregon law officials set up a road block and  captured several terrorist militia.One was killed, one wounded and several are no in jail.

Oh, the terrorists were rancher militia seeking to take over federal land without paying  a penny for its use. Oh, federal land belongs to ALL Americans, not just ranchers!

Oh, not a single one was a Muslim!

Donald Trump Discusses Everything

Donald Trump gave Wolf Blitzer an interview and discussed just about everything on his mind:

!. Megyn Kelly: “She hates me. She is not fair. Maybe I will show up Thursday for the Fox debate, maybe not. Of course, she can’t stop me.  I have no idea why she hates me. Everyone loves me but this woman!”

2. Sarah Palin. “Now, this is one smart woman. A real good woman, a woman who loves America–unlike a woman we all know who does not–and she is loved by the American people. Sure, I would put her in my Cabinet. She is one tough cookie, a real woman, a woman of the people. We need such women,not like that broad from Fox News.”

3. ISIS. “Do I have a great plan to handle ISIS. I sure do have a great plan and when I put it into action that will be the end of ISIS. What is the  plan? I am not like that stupid Obama who always told the enemy our plans. Keep them off balance, keep them guessing, that is part of my Great Plan. I will guarantee you, Wolf, I will guarantee the American people that MY great plan will end ISIS So, you Muslims, beware the Donald man is going to wipe you out!”

4. Obama. “He is stupid. The entire Obama government is stupid.We need some smart guys in government, and yours truly is the guy. I am a great business man, I am a great thinker, and I am NOT stupid!”

Bernie On Foreign Policy

As Hillary Clinton argues that she has greater experience in the area of foreign policy, Bernie Sanders has gone on the offense to prove he knows more how to handle foreign policy.  “Not only did I vote against the war in Iraq, I helped lead the opposition to  the war. There is a difference between experience and judgment.” Sanders is absolutely right to emphasize this difference regarding the war in Iraq. Hillary Clinton blundered, she became afraid that opposing the war would not resonate with the American people who wanted revenge for 9/11.

Bernie Sanders has yet to outline his foreign policy in the Middle East.  Yes, no American boots on the ground. But, that statement is NOT the outline of foreign policy. He needs to delineate exactly how his  presidency  would handle the complex world of the Middle East and its problems. No troops on the ground, but what else?

1. What about poverty in the region?

2. What about the Israel-Palestinian conflict?

Jeb Bush On Something Or Other

At each Republican debate my heart goes out to little Jebbie Bush the kid in the middle with a forlorn look on his face that shouts –how in hell did I get stuck with this group of nut cases! Let me offer a sample of how Jeb confronted the bullies who he had to respond to during the evening. After all, Jeb is not the strongest person on the stage and since Carly left for the kiddie’s table he has no one who he could beat in a wrestling match.

“People ask about student loans and Social Security and ISIS.  The solutions are there, but you are not going to  do a work-a-thon in  90 seconds.I try to purge all of that from my mind before the debate.”

Give Donald Trump some credit–he has stopped going after the weak little kid and now focuses on the big bully from Texas. NO, I do not mean George Bush but the refugee from Canada.  Give Jeb some credit, at least he is open about lacking any ideas how to solve any problems.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if Bernie Sanders can speak softly.

I wonder if Bernie really believes that he can work with Republicans to do something.

Then again, I doubt there is any sane person in the USA who could work with he current Republican leadership to do anything.

Hillary works hard to come across as sane and calm.

How about at the next debate we have Hillary, Bernie, Ted, and Donald?

Ted Cruz will be sorry that he referred to New York values. A losing punch line.

My nightmare, President Ted Curz.

Union Rights Not Right With Conservatives

I was raised in the Depression when one out of three working people belonged to a union. I remember when due to the presence of unions, a man or woman could earn enough money to purchase a home and send children to college. That was before the current attitude among young people and old white people who claim the presence of unions is unfair to the interests of job creators -those with money.

The Supreme Court is currently discussing a challenge to unions. It was filed by a  teacher, Ms. Fredrich who claimed she was losing her rights to free speech because her union dues were being used to support political candidates. Of course, those of us who invest in business lack any control over business leaders who use company money  to support political candidates. Ironically, conservative Justice Scalia years ago defended the right of unions to use its money to support political candidates. “Where the State imposes upon the union a duty to deliver services, it may permit the union to demand reimbursement for them.” I doubt if Justice Scalia these days would support the rights of job destroyers–unions, that is.

Oregon Terrorism

Imagine the following scenario, a group of Muslim terrorists attacked a federal building, seized control, and then dared the US government to drive them out? Or, imagine this scenario: a group of black skinned Christian terrorists seized control of a federal center, blocked federal authorities from entering and just dared any Federal law enforcement agent to enter? If these groups  carried out such terrorism the following would happen:

1. Donald Trump: “make me president and terrorists will finally learn not to mess with the government.”

2. Ted Cruz: “carpet bomb the entire place!”

3. Marco Rubio: “whatever Cruz said, I double it and will make certain it happens!”

4. Carly Fiorina: “I personally will lead armed forces to wipe out these terrorists. And, you should see the neat outfit I will be wearing!”

5. Mike Huckabee: “I’m from Arkansas and God is on my side in any fight!”

6. Ben Carson: “could you please show me where this Oregon is?”

7. Rand Paul: “Who cares about Oregon?”

8. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:  “God himself gave us this land, and I will lead the Israel army to once again make this land, Jewish!”

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

So, do we deport the well known Canadian, Ted Cruz?

Perhaps it is time to build a wall on the border with Canada to prevent immigrants from entering our nation?

Don’t mess with the Donald Man by getting a lot of votes. He will retaliate.

An entire week went by without a single comment from that profound thinker, Ben Carson.

Barack Obama committed a heinous crime, he cried in public!

I was never more shocked when two major football games were played on New Year’s eve. The result now shows few watched those games.

Is Carly Fiorina still alive?

 

 

 

The Real Terrorist

The American people are worried about Muslim terrorists who pose a threat to “our way of life.” Since 9/11 fewer than 50 Americans have been killed in the United States by those deemed to be “terrorists.” Actually, each month in the city of Chicago more people are killed by local terrorists than Muslim terrorists have killed since 2001. However, over in Asia there is a real terrorist who has missiles, and claims to have atomic and hydrogen bombs, but none of the Republican presidential candidates are worried about him.

Kim Jong-un, the pudgy guy with weird hair now claims to have tested a hydrogen bomb, and his people are working on placing a nuclear device on a missile that might reach the US. So, who do Republicans claim is the greatest threat to our way of life–IRAN! We do live in strange times when a nation that does not have any nuclear weapons and has agreed not to build them is the greatest threat to our way of life while a nation which DOES possess missiles and is working on nuclear devices is ignored!

I’m Black And I Got Blackened by Republicans

Seven years ago a black dude from Chicago won the nomination to run for president, and since that moment, there has been a non-stop effort by Fox News, Rush, Bill O’Reilly and sundry Republican politicians to charge the Christian, first that he was close to a radical black minister,and when that did  not work, to claim he was a Muslim from Kenya. Obama raised the question: “Are there certain circumstances around being the first African American president? Absolutely.”

However, in fairness to Republicans, just about every stupid charge that he was born in Africa was also cited by opponents of Abraham Lincoln,. They also claimed he was an escaped gorilla from Africa. Franklin D.Roosevelt was accused of hiding his real name–Roosenvelt. There is no question Barack Obama was non-stop charged with one crime, one scandal, one religious challenge, and he definitely was the first president who lied about his birth certificate–he was really born in Kenya, just ask Donald Trump!
