Texas Is A State Of Mind

Ted Cruz who was born in Canada and went to Harvard works very hard to portray himself as a God fearing two gun shooting Texan ready to take on one and all in the quest for a better and safer America. After all, Texas gave birth to George Bush, it gave birth to Jeb Bush, and heck, it is the home of Rick Perry. So, it is no surprise that Texas is also the home of Sid Miller, the head of the Texas Agricultural Commission.

Like any true blooded Texan this tough hombre is in love with the rodeo.  So, he had the state pay for  his trip to a rodeo in order to prove that he really is a Texan. He also  had the state pay to go to Oklahoma to get a “Jesus Shot,” whites a cure all for all illnesses from the noted Dr. Miles. Now, there is talk of making Sid pay for these trips, but, as we all know, this is simply an attempt to smear the name of a God-fearing Texan. Sid insists this attack on  his integrity is simply “an embarrassment by the very left-leaning liberal group Progress Texas.”

I wonder if Sid has considered challenging these liberals for a shoot-out at the OK corral.?

Ah, to be young and to believe the world can be perfect!

In American history the only time there is great change is when Congress is controlled by a liberal majority.

Some believe that by saying something, it results in doing something.

Death in the city is not proud.

My life  has taught me to go one step at  a time. Begin with success and it builds toward greater success.

ISIS IS being slowly pushed back in the Middle East.

Barack Obama has consistently NOT been the great communicator Continue reading

Polygamy Under Fire

There are at least 30,000 couples of groups or extended families that fit into the description of a polygamist arrangement. A Federal justice has restored the ban on polygamy as an accepted form of marriage in the state of Utah. In reality this conflict between the so-called “natural” arrangement of man and woman as mates as husband and wife has been an important issue in Utah ever since it became a state in the United States of America. Throughout its existence the reality that thousands of folks in Utah prefer the non-traditional arrangement in which one guy is husband to several gals.

I do realize it is a fundamental proposition of the Republican party that God ordained there be husband and wife, and HE meant one husband and one wife. Of course, the Bible sort of does not present that as being the norm in days when men had constant conversations with the old Guy up in the sky.

Of course, now that American society has made legal an arrangement in which two guys or two gals can constitute a “family,” how can a judge decide that one guy and two or three gals cannot constitute a family? I assume the next fight for equality will include the polygamists in Utah. Of course, once it is legal in Utah, will it soon be in Georgia or Mississippi?

All leading candidates complain the system is rigged, but they are the leading candidates!

Gee nothing from Donald about Hispanic rapists the past few weeks. How come?

If Donald wants to shout about violent killers, just take on Chicago, the capital of murder.

Slowly, gradually, ISIS is retreating. That is the reason for attacks in Europe.

NO question–Ted Cruz could make a fortune in movies as the EVIL man.

Imagine a conversation between Jeb Bush and Ben Carson.

Anyway, now that baseball is here, each day there is a winner and a loser and no one complains the system is rigged.

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!

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.
