NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a twenty four year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Republicans need more female candidates–Sarah,are you ready?

I still believe Herman Cain is the best black Republican candidate.

Has Donald considered his wife as a VP possibility -why not keep it in the family?

Then again, any Trump kids ready for this role?

I suspect the last word of Republicans is -BENGHAZI!

Does anyone today even know where Benghazi is?

I still don’t know why Hillary is not blamed for the drought. It began while she was Secretary of State!

Tragedy Of Middle East

There has been an ongoing tragedy in the Middle East for over seventy years. It has to do with reactions of Muslim nations to their fellow Muslims. After the forced or voluntary departure of Muslims from the new state of Israel, not a single Arab/Muslim nation would allow their fellow Muslims to become citizens of the land in which they were now living. They have spent the next seventy years as aliens in Muslim societies. Today, over two million Syrians are now refugees in a Muslim society. They are not allowed to become a citizen, they are denied opportunities for work, for a role in society.

Syrians are NOT welcomed into Muslim societies anymore than Palestinians were or are. They live on the fringes of society. A Syrian who enters Sweden is allowed to become a citizen and enjoy the benefits of that role. But, not a single Muslim society offers Muslim refugees the same right. The question is why don’t Muslim societies integrate Muslim refugees?

So, What About Iraq?

We are now experiencing the resurrection of the triumphant trio of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. In the new Republican narrative, these men were not only responsible for the overthrow of evil, terrible Saddam Hussein, but they saved the world from the bad man’s nuclear or chemical weapons of destruction. It was due to the intelligence and bravery of George Bush that peace and prosperity were restored to the people of Iraq. Alas, then appeared the black dude from Africa, whose blunders led to the rise of al-Qaeda, ISIS, and you name the other evil people.

1. It was the dynamic trio who appointed Nouri al-Maliki to the position of Prime Minister. It was this man who transformed the Sunnis who had worked with American forces into the enemy of the Iraq government.

2. The success of the so-called, Surge, depended upon cooperation of Sunnis. Guess who ended that cooperation.

3. President Obama DID offer to maintain US forces. BUT, he refused to allow American troops to be subject to Iraq law. THAT was the reason they left.

I await Jeb Bush publicly saying he was ready to have American forces placed under Iraq law.

A Gory Tale

I was born and raised in the South Bronx where the only Bull we ever knew was bullshit emanating from the mouth os come blow hard.However, in dear old sunny Spain they sort of have this thing for Bulls. They send Bulls dashing into the streets, and having a good old time sort of sending their horns into the bodies of any and all in their path. During the past week at least four were gored to death as they joyfully followed Bulls dashing through the streets.

I guess this is fun-taking pictures of animals that will kill you. As a street wise kid, I was taught early in life if someone or something could kill you, run as fast as you can in the other direction!

A South African Tale Of Jail

News from South Africa indicates that when it comes to the punishment of those with money and power, a little bit of money goes a long way to getting a Walk Out Card from prison. Oscar Pritorious sort of killed his sweetheart a year ago and for some strange reason was sent to prison. Actually, he received a six year term that includes one year actually in prison, and the other five at the home of his uncle. Well, it is sort of a prison. Twelve bedrooms, a swimming pool,private gym and the run of the house.

Well, on the bad side, he can not leave this luxurious restart and go out into the real world. All it takes is money, good manners, know the right people and prison can be the place to head if you desire a good time!

Now, about those visiting women….

Our Ancestors Were Terrorists

Recent discoveries of a 7000 year old farm site reveal that our dear old ancestors were just a bunch of terrorists who did’t give a damn if the enemy was composed of women and children. The farm site contained the skeletons of 26 adults and children. There was evidence many had been tortured before death. So, what does this mean for we modern humans?

1. We humans just enjoy murdering the hell out of our enemies.

2. Beat another is justification for murdering the other.

3. They were using bows and arrows 7,000 years ago, pretty modern, if you ask me.

Republican leaders upon hearing the news immediately blamed this slaughter on the weak policies of President Obama. He just does not know how to handle terrorists. Donald promised, if and when elected, he will take care of these murderers.

When Marco Rubio was asked to comment about this scientific discovery, he responded: “I’m no scientist.”

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

France, Connexion: “I Will Deliver A Budget”

And, it damn well will reduce taxes on our poor wealthy folks!

UK,Guardian: “Fleeing Refugees”

And, no Statue of Liberty to Greet Them.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Worse Reverse For Seniors”

Elect Jeb Bush as President?

Sweden, Local: “Who Worries The World?

I can name 17 clowns who do.

Israel, Jerusalem Post: “Rabbi Fired”

Is that allowed in the Torah?

Donald Has Some Ideas

It is now clear that Donald Trump DOES have solutions to rejecting the Iran nuclear deal and how to handle events in the Middle East. First, Donald is clear that accepting a nuclear deal with Iran is the first step toward a “nuclear disaster.” He promises to rip up any agreement with Iran if elected. I do assume he understands this agreement is with SIX nations, and if the US abandons the agreement, the other five can enter trade agreements with Iran. I assume he understands that Russia will sell anti-missile systems to Iran.

Donald also wants to take over Iraq oil fields, and is willing to send US troops into Iraq to fight ISIS. We get the oil, and we keep the money. What exactly then happens in Iraq, who the hell cares! I believe this step is the greatest recruiting step for ISIS, but Donald is not worried.

He also discussed his anger at Saudi Arabia, another country he intends to clean up.

We now know that Donald has a plan. At least he has one. Which other Republican candidate can make that statement?

Black Lives Matter

The other day a couple of black women broke into a speech by Benie Sanders in order to rant on and on about Black Lives Matter.Exactly, They believe the only topic of worth in modern America is that of Black Lives. Exactly how TALKING about Black Lives will ensure that Black Lives are protected is a mystery. There are some ways the lives of black youth can be protected:

1. Higher minimum wages that ensure one who works can raise a family.

2. Accepting the idea of a guaranteed annual wage for all Americans.

3. Higher taxes on the wealthy to ensure there is money for rebuilding the infrastructure and providing jobs for all people.

4. Re-educating police forces.

5. Return to neighborhood police so cops know everyone in the neighborhood.

I assure these women electing Donal Trump or any of the comedians in the Republican Party will NOT ensure that Black Lives Matter!

Reflections On Baseball

I was raised in the golden age of baseball. Pitchers were expected to pitch an entire nine inning game, and players were expected to play the entire game, batting and in the field. In those days, a baseball game usually was completed within two hours. Today, one is happy if the game concludes within four hours. These days pitchers are restricted to about 105 pitches, in my youth a pitcher was expected to pitch the entire nine innings. It stands to reason the more innings one pitches, the stronger one’s arm becomes.

We baby, we coddle modern baseball players. Sorry, baseball is a passive sport with most players not in action more than a small percent of the game.Yet,players today must be “rested.” For God’s sake, the first baseman is just standing there catching a ball.An outfielder just stands and watches, occasionally, he must run to catch a ball. Now this is real hard work!

OH,and today, we pay someone $5 million for hitting 220!

Baseball has become a boring sport with pampered men as players.
