Unions For Low Wages

There are moments in this modern world in which fewer and fewer workers belong to a union when I wonder how did we reach a point in time when a UNION is now asking for LOWER WAGES! The city of Los Angeles has passed new legislation which will witness a rise in the minimum wage until it reaches $15 an hour. HOWEVER, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor is now upset and seeks to roll back the wage increase.

Rusty Hicks, the executive director of this group of unions is afraid that business will become upset and assume a vigorous anti-union stand. So, he wants a  lower minimum wage and will seek to persuade business men to negotiate benefits such as health care in exchange of wage increases. How the hell did this alleged union leader become one? The object of unions is to fight for higher wages, NOT for lower wages! If a union leader is afraid of businessmen, he should cease being a union leader and go over to the other side!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

No political candidate these days ever discusses the situation in Afghanistan. We still have thousands of soldiers in it.

I confess to being absolutely bored with the lack of any coherent discussion concerning the Middle East.

I wonder if there is another Earth out there in the universe which contains intelligent life forms?

Republicans rant and rave about ending relations with Iran over the nuclear accord while there is North Korea which IS working on a-bombs.

If Ted Cruz is the BEST alternative for Republicans, why not just close down this political party.

These days I really miss the intelligence of Rick Perry.

I think Republicans should book a circus to entertain people during their convention.

Then again, they already have booked a circus!

 

Road To Nowhere

Another primary, another day of victories for Sanders and Cruz.There were long speeches by the two victors and many, many promises as to what they would do when elected. For Cruz, there is the promise of a new America in which to be poor, is to remain poor, a land without taxes, a land without rights for women, a land in which Ted single-handedly wipes out ISIS somehow with some bombs. For Bernie, it is a  land in which just making a speech ends the rule of the wealthy and restores power to the middle class.

Each promises that if elected there will be MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of new jobs. Each assures the American people these new jobs will be HIGH PAYING, but there is no explanation as to why employers who presently do not wish to pay high wages will suddenly raise them significantly. Bernie says he will create “twelve million new jobs by rebuilding the infrastructure.” He has never explained why rebuilding our infrastructure results in twelve million new high paying  jobs. Then again, when one runs for the presidency, make promises which can never be carried out.

Cruz and Sanders are completely the opposite in what they desire for America except that both are job creators. Just once it would be wonderful if someone explained how these jobs actually come into reality and why they are HIGH PAYING ones.

Georgia Days And Conversations

Governor Robert Bentley is rather upset and there are several members of the Georgia Legislature who are upset, if not angry at their fellow Republican governor of the state. It appears the governor committed a real boo-boo. For some reason and in some way,someone got a copy of a phone conversation between the Governor and his aide over his desire to sort of do some sexual things with the woman.

Quite a few Republicans in the legislature are now seeking to institute a process by which the good governor is impeach. I assume the Republican governor was seeking to restore individual liberty to all those who reside in the state.

1. How does someone get a copy of a phone conversation between the governor and his aide? Did she give the public what was t old her?

2. When or how do we go back to the good old days when anyone could speak on the phone without the world knowing?

3. Who the hell, other than the aide would even know about the conversations? Are we now in 1984?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Given revelations of the Panama Papers, will Donald Trump open up his files?

If you area  middle class person in America, these are not the best of times.

Heck, if you are a working class person, these sure are NOT the best of times.

There is a large body of people in this country who complain and then seek to elect politicians who want to keep the wealthy in power.

There MUST be a Republican politician who makes sense.

In my youth in New York City only nut cases and criminals had guns.

Donald Trump is a person who  gets clobbered and thinks he has just gotten praised.

Ah,Them Earthquakes

In America, we frack, we drill, we get oil, and we get some unintended consequences such as a minor thing called–earthquakes. Mark Peterson of the United States Geological Survey made clear the “primary source of recent events)(earthquakes) was related to human activities.”In other words, what used to be unusual in Oklahoma or Kansas has now become a common event. So, the question for these solid Republican areas of America is whether it is preferable to have communities wracked by earthquakes or require those with wealth to hold off from destroying communities.

Once again, the issue of our beloved one percent who make the money arises. In the world of the  rich-only-create-jobs mentality, a few earthquakes are really no problem since we get jobs. Such is the American ethos in the year 2016.

P.S. I await Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders blaming this event on our lousy trade agreements.

From George Washington to Donald Trump disproves the concept of evolution.

At one Republican debate I expect a real good food fight.

Anderson Cooper had no right to term Trump’s comment that of a five year old, it definitely was that of a four year old.

The real mystery of life is why so many guys and gals want to blow themselves up and go to heaven. It’s the END of life, guys.

Am I the only one who  has never seen a Kardashian?

Just a few more days to baseball where there always is a winner and a loser.

Strange, no one these days ever mentions, Afghanistan.

I await the arrival of a political leader who knows WHICH are the new jobs in this society.

I believe that Donald Trump has reached the point in which most Americans are bored hearing what a Great Guy he is.

Ironically,the American economy is among the most successful in the world. So,

This is definitely the era of IGNORANCE.

There is something about the face of Ted Cruz that is the personification of EVIL.

I feel sorry for John Kasich,he does try hard to be heard above the Trump clamor.

America awaits a Savior, but Jesus simply is busy on other planets.

Oh Marco, We Miss You So!

Ok, so there were seventeen at the start line and Marco was only one of them. But, there was something heroic, awe inspiring, fresh and so nice about the story of this humble boy who rose from being the son of a bartender and a main into one seeking the highest office in the land. OK, so he was not a poor Jewish boy from Brooklyn, nor a solid middle class boy like Scott Walker whose dream for America was a land without a single union that seized money from job creators and gave them to lazy, Marxist union leaders.

Ah, Marco was so fresh. He had such cute kids  and a wife who adored him. Who can forget his cutting remarks about “small hands” that sent Donald into a frenzy of proving that he not only had large hands but a large penis as well. Ah, Marco, always fighting for an America without health care for the poor, fighting to protect our wealthy from becoming less wealthy. For Marco, it was morning in America when the poor finally understood their task in life was to remain poor so job creators could produce more and more jobs for the wealthy.

So, depart, Marco the magnificent. For decades to come, children will sing songs about your gallant fight for job creators and love of bartenders and maids.

I sure miss the mumblings and stumblings of Jeb Bush.

I sure miss not being able to hear a word that Ben Carson utters.

Each day Donald Trump reveals he is a poor man’s version of the boasting incompetent Benito Mussolini of Italy.

This year we have a new concept of who should be our president–the person who can punch out the most voters–physically, that is.

Ross Perot, where are you?

Hillary is simply not a natural born politician.

Bernie is getting better and better with his speech of hope.
