NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Each day in America some political leader shouts, his message is the shout.

Ben Carson always looks so forlorn on the stage as he is ignored by all.

John Kasich offers some interesting thoughts, but he continues to shout them.

I gather Carly Fiorina is upset at being left off the stage. Now, why would she be left off?

Jeb is throwing a few punches. The question is have they hit somebody?

I so miss the ironic comments of Rand Paul.

Has anyone thought of contacting Mitt Romney?

Donald Is The Man

Tomorrow America will know if Donald Trump is still the Man. He has defied “experts” for over six months who repeatedly insisted that his campaign of shouting and demanding and insisting would soon be met with fatigue on the part of Americans, but here it is February 8, 2016 and the Donald man is still Number One in the hearts of Republicans. Why?

1. His opponents are either recycled politicians such as Mike Huckabee or the stumbling and bumbling Jeb Bush.

2. Americans are angry and filled with confusion so  many seek the voice of someone who, at least, claims to know what is wrong and how it can be fixed.

3. Donald is a master in claiming to know how to fix anything. OH, he has a GREAT PLAN. And, the gullible and frightened American public buys into this bombast.

4. So, he definitely is THE MAN.

5. Ironically his main opponent at this moment is a white haired man who claims to know how to fix all problems–Bernie Sanders.

We live in the age of shouting and screaming. Definitely, the way to solve our problems. Then again, has ANY politician really identified the “problems” and how to solve them??

Voter’s Guide To A Republican Debate

The Debate season is still going on even though the winds of March are just around the corner. In order to assist readers, we are offering a short guide to any Republican debate. Why worry what is coming next when we can guarantee exactly what candidates will say.

1. We love Hispanics but want them to remain in Mexico.

2. We hate the wealthy but we can not raise their taxes since that would lead to a depression.

3. We will abolish Obamacare and guarantee those without health care complete health care without any government involvement. Tune in sometime in late November about the specific details.

4. We will end student debt. Each and every student who has loans is guaranteed they will repay those loans with the help of rich folks. Each student will contract with a wealthy person who will repay their loan in exchange for 10% of their salary from now on.

5. The days of ISIS are over after we carpet bomb them into oblivion!

6. We love women, in fact we all have moms and sisters and wives to prove it.

7. Send Hillary Clinton to prison and restore America’s honor.

8. Oh, we love Israel and we love Jews. Some of our best friends are Jews.

Chris Christie Is Mad!

Chris Christie is a heavy set man, he is rather hefty and knows how to throw his weight around. It is best that when Chris gets upset, that any normal person make certain they are nowhere in his vicinity. The other night at the Republican debate, Chris sort of got sore at Marco Rubio. He accused Marco of having the same set message regardless of the time day or night. It sort of goes something like this:

“My parents are immigrants from Cuba who came to this great nation and worked themselves up. I love America. I love Iowa. I love the Republican party and I sure love  the dough that comes with running for president. The real enemy of America is NOT ISIS. The real enemy of America is Hillary Clinton. She is the  one responsible for Benghazi! The infamy of Benghazi is the worst disaster in American history and when I become president, the first person headed to jail is Hillary Clinton! OK, Pearl Harbor caused a few more deaths, but the deaths at Benghazi were ordered by Hillary Clinton. Elect me and send Hillary Clinton to prison!!”

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think that Ben Carson believes ISIS is a skin rash.

With God  at his side, Ted Cruz is heading for the final battle of life.

Looks like John Kasich has taken votes from Jeb Bush in New Hampshire.

We need an early primary in a large state like New York or Illinois or California.

Some follow NBA box scores but in Chicago people follow crime death scores.

The real Republican question is what does Donald Trump do if Marco Rubio gets the nomination., Go quietly into night?

Strange quiet from Vladimir Putin but lots of noise from Russian bombs in Syria.

Am I the only one in America who does not know who or care what the Kardashians are?

Super Bowl is a super time to bash in heads and bodies.

Since 9/11 only 45 Americans died from terrorist attacks in the US, each month in Chicago, 50 die from violence. So, who REALLY is the threat?

Political promises of the spring turn into old dreams after the election.

I think God is on an extended vacation from visiting planet Earth.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Sometimes Jeb Bush looks like a little boy who just saw his toy get broken.

I so miss the ironic comments of Rand Paul.

One day Donald Trump will actually discuss a single plan in detail. That  would end his candidacy.

One day Marco Rubio will admit his parents left Cuba BEFORE Castro came to power.

Imagine the impact on this election when Rick Santorum endorses your candidacy!

From now on all Republican debates should be held in churches.

Is Carly Fiorina still alive?

So, What Can Hillary Do?

The candidacy of Hillary Clinton is confronting some serious issues. She continues to emphasize her “experience” when large numbers of young people detest the word, “experience.” They, along with many Americans, want someone who does NOT have any experience because past experience is what got us into the current mess. Let me suggest to Hillary Clinton:

1. Focus on what must be done tomorrow.

2. Emphasize that she wants NEW approaches.

3. Instead of a “revolution” emphasize a New Deal Deal.

4. Be specific about issues such as Student Loan. For example, a president could lower the interest rate on loans.

5. Offer a Rolling Reform plan that would occur over a period of five or ten years.

6. Address the issue  of visas granted to highly educated foreign workers who are taking jobs from highly trained American educated workers.

Bernie Wants It All

The essence of the Sanders foreign policy is that American troops must never become involved in any aspect of “nation building.” He has a hard time envisioning a situation in which  the use of military force would be used.  After the debacle of Iraq and the horror of what is going on in Syria, it is difficult to  disagree with that point of view. The question posed is: “are there any situations in which America would employ military force?”

In the real world, a president  has to be prepared to use our military. Frankly, I do not know if that situation would be in the Middle East or some place else. A different question might be: “What type of military force could be used in the Middle East?

1. At present we are using our air force.

2. We are using Special Forces–small groups of highly trained soldiers.

3. We are sending members of the military  to train the Iraq army.

None of the above would lead to what happened in Iraq.

Jeb Bush–Please Applaud!

I am very  confused because so many politicians give speeches and people applaud without being informed when it was time to place their hands together and inform the speaker of approval for what he or she just said. I have absolutely no idea how this strange custom began in American politics. Jeb Bush, brother of George Bush was giving a speech in New Hampshire during which he spoke with passion and clarity about why he alone was the most intelligent person seeking the presidency. As we all know, mom and dad Bush always regarded Jeb as the bright son and were very disappointed that George somehow got the presidency that had been promised to Jeb.

Anyway,Jeb gave his presentation and was met with absolute silence. Since he is the bright son, Jeb decided to introduce an innovation to the political process. He quietly clapped his hands and said to the audience: ” How about some applause?” WOW! They had never heard such a brilliant idea from any political leader and immediately got their hands together.

First,they applauded him in New Hampshire and next they applauded him in South Carolina and soon all America was inundated with applause!

Rick, We Knew Ye Well

Four years ago on a dark and cloudy night, I first encountered a man from Pennsylvania who wore such incredible sweaters and spoke with a firm voice that most probably  had specifically been given to him by God. He so loved God and scarcely could utter a sentence without mentioning our Lord and thanking him for the bounty of life and supporting the Republican party.

Well, Rick Santorum once again informed America that he no longer would seek the office of President. This was a shock to me. I mean, here was a real Christian unlike the other people seeking the presidency. Sarah Palin might claim to be a Republican but Rick Santorum had wonderful children who never got in trouble. Imagine if America had such a father as head of this nation! Oh Rick,  we always turned to you when moral issues arose because only you could inform us what God thought about them. Only you communicated directly with the Big Guy up in the sky!

Rick, we will miss your wonderful stories and wonderful sweaters and your direct line to God!
