Jeb Bush Speaks Quietly

The Donald man was not on the stage so Jeb felt very comfortable in actually expressing his ideas to an audience.

“As you know,my  dad was a great president, and my loving brother was a president, and I intend to be a president. As for my other qualifications, you can read all about my  ideas by checking my  web site. I love all people, and that includes hard working Hispanic immigrants. If elected I will tear down the Trump wall just as Ronald Reagan tore down the wall in Berlin. I will get his nation moving again, just check my  web site for the specific ways to accomplish this task.  Unlike Marco who speaks one way on Monday  and another on Tuesday, I will always speak the same way seven days a week. Just check my web site for the things that I will say. God, its great being on a stage without that guy who takes over whenever I try to speak. If you wan to know what I think about that guy, just go to my web site.”

Ted Cruz Cruises Into Battle

There is no doubt if Republicans want a candidate who is ready for war, then simply gaze in the direction of Ted Cruz. He is the 2016 version of Dick Cheney Rumsfeld, raring for a good fight and ready to send Americans into battle while he remains behind at headquarters to direct battles. He wants to carpet bomb ISIS into hell. Of course, ISIS in Syria is embedded cities where there are civilians, but Ted is a Christian who cares about saving the lives of unborn children, as far as born people, then blast them into hell.

“I am the only person on this stage who truly believes in Jesus Christ. I am the only one who adheres to his teaching –kill the bastards and send those illegal immigrants back to Mexico. If elected, on my first day, Hillary Clinton will be headed to jail, on my second day, Bill Clinton will join her there. I am from Texas. God bless Texas, God bless guns. God bless me.”

Rand Paul Not So Bored

Ordinarily in these debates Rand Paul is over at the end and appears to be gazing at the ceiling in despair as to how in hell he got stuck on this stage with these weird guys.

“Ted, Marco, I was there when both of you on the Senate floor were supporting a bill to allow illegal immigrants to become citizens. Of course, these days such ideas do not play well in this nation, particularly in Iowa. And Ted, you voted to reduce military expenditures and now you are going to dramatically increase the size of the US military. I wonder why. You also wanted to allow the government to check our phones. Not exactly an example of the 4th Amendment. Then again, Marco I have lost track as to the number of times you change your mind when  there is realization voting for bill X might lead to loss of votes.

Anyway, it has been a nice quiet evening without the guy at center stage bullying one and all.”

Ben Carson On Any Issue

Ben Carson was asked how he, if president, faced a Russian invasion of Estonia.

“First, let me make one thing clear. I am the only one on this stage who has been confronted with life-death situations. I had to respond to calls at 2:00 a.m. and get together a team to solve life and death situations. So, a Russian invasion of this Estonia poses no problem for me. Just to get things clear, this Estonia is in the Middle East? NO. OK, we are going to send in American troops, we are going to arm these Estonians-that is what they are called, I assume,- and we are going to  give them missiles and big bombs to take care of Russian invaders. Just as I stitched up people after an operation, I am prepared to stitch up any problem that arises.

OH, and have no doubt that our Savior Jesus Christ will be right there helping me win this war.”

Chris Christie On Any Topic

During the Republican debate, Governor Chris Christie was asked about the criminal behavior of his staff in blocking lanes on the George Washington bridge. The Governor offered a powerful defense.

“I want to make on thing clear, as Governor I worked to end the corruption that I found from previous Democratic governments.  If I am elected President of this great nation, feel assured that I will protect the farmers of Iowa. I will make certain that not a single college graduate has any loans to pay off. I am a problem solver, unlike those on this stage who are US Senators spending their days  arguing about nothing. You raise the issue of immigrants, well, I am the only one who will end such  discussion by a  law that ensures those immigrants who do not belong here, head back to Mexico and those who are from Muslim nations are returned to the Muslim group who sent them here. I WILL protect our borders!!”

NO BODY 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

I have no doubt Ben Carson would turn down being  in the center of a debate.

How come Carly is not allowed in the debate now that Donald will not be there?

Weird news of the day-Fox News is fighting for press freedom.

Frankly, I never heard of  Megan Kelly until Donald blasted her.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have Bloomberg vs Trump – a battle of the billionaires.

Then again, the billionaires will help decide who wins.

The other guy in the Democratic debate will always be the other guy.

We Vote For A Supreme Court

The 2016 election is not about whether Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders of Donald Trump or Ted Cruz becomes president. It is an important election because there are several rather elderly  people on the Supreme Court and thus whoever is president in 2017 may well be able to decide the course of American history for a decade. If a Republican is elected there is no doubt:

1. Abortion rights are endangered.

2. Voting rights are endangered.

3.  Business will continue using its money  to decide elections.

4. Rights of immigrants are endangered.

5. In essence, democracy is endangered.

Donald Wins Again

Donald Trump has decided that to win an election in 2016 the best strategy is to do the unexpected. He refuses to adhere to traditional approaches since the American people are just fed up with the world in which they live. Many, not all, believe their nation is in dire straits and it is all the fault of those who have been in charge of the nation’s political leadership. So, Donald does the reverse. If the norm is to make certain one is in a debate, Trump uses the ploy of not coming to the debate and taking over the news for a few days.

Give the devil his due. He just refuses to behave like a politician and the result is he gains more and more support from a large section of the nation. So, tonight, Donald will be talking about veterans, and tomorrow he will be talking non-stop about what happened at the debate because he was not present. ON to the convention and God knows what he will do there!

Who Gets Center Podium?

At this moment in time it  appears that Donald Trump will not appear at the center podium for tonight’s debate. The issue of the hour is who then goes to center stage? We posed this issue to several Republicans:

Marco Rubio– I believe that I am the youngest candidate and the one Trump has  bashed the most. It belongs to me!

Jeb Bush: Hey, wait a second dude, if I open my mouth to breathe Donald shoves his fist down it. My brother was the last Republican president so I deserve center stage.

Rand Paul: Who the fuck cares?

Ben Carson: Does being in the center podium mean I get to answer more questions? Is so, let me remain where I usually stand.

John Kasich: I am the most qualified since I served in Congress, and I am a governor. That places me ahead of anyone else on the stage.

Chris Christie: Folks, I am the center stage since I am the heaviest  person in this group. I need something strong to lean on.

Ted Cruz: It would help if the lot of you just left and allowed me to go man vs man with Donald. I won many debates at Harvard and am the smartest person in this group. If intelligence counts, and being able to insult is important, just give me center stage!

North Korean Wants To Bomb

The Republican party and Israel leader Benjamin Netanyahu insist the greatest threat to the safety of America is posed by the Iranian government. Of course, in reality, the greatest actual threat to our survival is posed by a lunatic in North Korea who has transformed his nation into a giant military machine. Kim Jong-un not only issues verbal threats, but has focused the entire nation to the task of creating missiles and nuclear weapons.

Japanese reports indicate that North Korea is in the process of developing  long range missiles and even working to miniature nuclear weapons into the missiles. So, where is the threat– from ISIS with its 30,000 troops or Iran which now allows inspection of its nuclear facilities or from North Korea??

Oh, by the way, Israel has at least 60 nuclear bombs and does NOT allow UN inspectors into its facilities.
