So Who Is A Progressive?

Senator Bernie Sanders wants Democrats to know that he is the only “Progressive” running for the presidency. He uncovered some statements from Hillary Clinton in which she either said that she was a “moderate” or that she was a “Progressive.” According to Bernie, “you  are either a progressive or a moderate, you  can’t have it both ways.”

Well Bernie, it is clear that you do not know the origin of the word, “Progressive.” It originally was used by supporters of Republican Theodore Roosevelt who after being denied the Republican nomination, formed the Progressive Party and ran for president in 1912. Oh, Bernie, Teddie hated Socialism and argued that only a Progressive could wean working people from socialism. Bernie, “you are either a Progressive or a Socialist, you  can’t be both!

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!!”

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!

Donald And Ben Are Upset!

A story in the Washington Post has aroused the anger of Donald Trump and Ben Carson. The story claims there is an organized process going on by some Republican leaders that would ensure neither one of these clowns is the candidate of their party in November, 2016. Ben told the media if this effort succeeds and a secret plot is successful that denies either Donald or him the prize of being the candidate for president, he is walking and taking those who support him elsewhere.

Donald was also quite upset. “I signed a pledge(to support the Republican candidate), but a pledge was a double deal and its supposed to be honorable. I’ve been hearing about secret closed-door meetings and I don’t like it.” So,comes next November are there three-or four- or God knows how many others running for president?

Venezuela Has Hope

After Hugo Chavez gained power in Venezuela he imposed what he termed to be a “Socialist”revolution in which those with wealth would pay to  ensure that poor people got a decent form of life. Somewhere along the road of this “Socialist” revolution things sort of went in the wrong direction.  After Chavez established his own form of kleptocracy in which those who claim to be “Socialists” simply took the wealth of middle and upper classes in order to enrich their own lives.

Fortunately, the people of Venezuela finally had a fair election for the National Assembly and  a Center-Right coalition won an overwhelming majority. President Nicolas Maduro  has promised to obey the voice of the  people. Frankly,we have doubts that  he will.  Maduro might  just claim those with wealth want to return to the good old days before the “Socialist” revolution. Venezuela needs a moderate government whose initial task is creating a viable economic system.

Death In Venezuela

In theory the nation of  Venezuela is a democratic society in which there are supposedly the semblance of free elections. Since this nation came under the control of Hugo Chavez the government  has existed for the right of his followers to continue in office. After his death, former bus driver  Nicolas Maduro became the president. An election is coming up next week and during the campaign, opposition leaders have wound up in  jail or beaten up.

Yesterday,  Luis Diaz, head of the Democratic Action Party was gunned down. Ten bullets hit his body. Just another casualty in the quest for power of Maduro. Oh, there will be an investigation.

Bernie Butts Into Hillary

At the Democratic debate Bernie Sanders sort of ran rings around Hillary on a few points. He is the only candidate pointing out that our military budget is higher than the next six national military budgets of other nations. Bernie made an important point– The task right now is to rethink how military funds are spent. The task is to create a new military force trained to fight insurgents rather than a military force trained to fight a traditional war with tanks and planes and nuclear weapons. We need an army which has small well trained special forces who are skilled in working against small groups of militants. Planes support such action, but planes are not going to engage in dog fights in the sky.

1. So, what type of air force is needed for future war?

2. What type of ground forces are need for such wars”

3. What type of weapons are needed for such wars?

4. How do we train our generals, how do we train our officers, and how do we train our soldiers?

Perhaps, fewer bucks but well aimed bucks will result in lower military expenditures??

If Carly Fiorina Became President

Carly at initial Cabinet meeting.

“OK, it is time to demonstrate some good old American initiative. I think we can get a good deal by purchasing Swaziland. We offer any Hispanic immigrant an all expenses paid job in this African nation–which, of course will now become our latest purchase. I bet Donald will be jealous as hell when I show the country how to end our immigration problem.”

Meet with Joint Chiefs of Staff. “OK, let’s get some boots on the ground in Iraq and Syria. look,any boots will do,how about the illegal immigrants, if they want to remain here, it is only fair for them to fight for this country.”

Carly to Republican congressional leaders: “I want action. Make clear to congressmen that if the fail to do the job, they no longer have one. Make clear this tough broad will not tolerate lazy bums!”

Carly to Attorney General: “So, is Hillary yet in jail? What the hell is going on, send her to prison,she contradicted me!”

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

NIGHTMARE FOR AMERICA AND WORLD–PRESIDENT BEN CARSON!

If ignorance was a virtue, Republican candidates would be angels in Heaven.

Come on, God, Ben Carson as PRESIDENT!!

After hearing Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio declaim on foreign policy, Donald comes across as intelligent.

I often wonder these days how I got stuck in America with all these weirdos.

Poor Hillary, if only emails had not been invented.

Say, whatever happened to that guy named Jeb?

UK Labor Not OK Leader

I have always believed in the basic ideas of socialism that that purpose of government is to ensure that each and every person in society be afforded the basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and a decent job. Why else have government unless the needs of people are provided. I also believe that those with wealth should pay higher taxes since for a millionaire receiving $900,000 instead of $1,200,000 will not result in being at the poor house door. The Labor party of the United Kingdom has elected Jeremy Corbyn as its new leader. He has promised to return to the traditional ideas of socialism.

Any intelligent Socialist now understands that government ownership of production will NOT work because bureaucracy is as bas an enemy as capitalism. Carbyn is the wrong leader at the wrong time and ensures more and more triumphs for the Conservative party. He was elected because so many people today hate whoever is in power and thus want change. Any change will do for them. Any change is not necessarily the best idea in modern times.
