Cuba, Cuba, Forever

A famous definition of stupidity is the act of repeating an act over and over again even though the results are always the same. In 1960, the American government initiated its program to overthrow the government of Fidel Castro. Heck, in 1961 they even sent in Cuban exiles who were promptly captured during the infamous Bay of Pigs fiasco. Reality is that the Castro family has been in control of Cuba for over seventy years. During this time period the American government has enforced sanctions upon Cuba in an effort to destroy its economy.

Well, after seventy years Cuba is still around. Cuba is still run by the Castro boys. So, what is the response of Republicans to President Obama’s decision to end sanctions? According to Marco Rubio and the others, the solution is to: IMPOSE SANCTIONS. Inform Marco and the anti-Castro guys that what they desire has been in effect for over seventy years, and the result:

NO CHANGE IN THE CUBAN government.

I realize evidence or reality has scant place among Republicans seeking the presidency. They prefer the domain of stupidity.

P.S. Pope Francis assisted the Obama administration to end sanctions.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Denmark,Copenhagen Post: “Police Investigate Shootings”

In America that usually means police shootings.

France, Connexion: “Water Restrictions In California”

I’ll drink to that.

Norway, Norway Post: “Don’t Forget To Leap”

Sound advice to Republican candidates when Donald arrives.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Demon Toddler”

If I was you, I would crawl away.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Apologize For Shooting Black Man”

NO,I think the dead black man owes an apology for making cops use expensive bullets.

Why Trump Aids Republicans?

The chairperson of the Republican party in Pennsylvania has come up with a new twist on the Trump mess that impacts all those seeking the nomination for president. He notes that Donald Trump has captured the media and brought attention to the Republican party. At least these days, one or the other Republican candidates is in the headlines. So, we thought it might be beneficial to offer some other ways Republicans can gain notoriety.

1. How about dressing Republican candidates in the Hells Angel uniform and take over a college town and harass the girls?

2. Why not lead a lynch mob against some Muslim or his family?

3. There is always the possibility we can obtain live footage of Donald fucking some beautiful gal.

4. Just remember when Donald Trump stands up for America his entire body is on display. I dare Hillary Clinton to engage in a sex contest with Donald!

Mexico Continues Acting Like Mexico

Let me make quite clear there is nothing wrong with the people of Mexico other than continuing to possess a government that is riddled with corruption. Heck, the President of Mexico had a contractor who does work for the government build him a new house.However, the latest example of corruption and inefficiency will undoubtedly produce at least three films depicting the escape from prison of notorious drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. To be fair, police did arrest him. To be fair he did reach a prison. To be fair, he actually spent at least a month in the jail. To be fair, guards did see him lying on his prison bunk.

However, one day, the drug lord went to take a shower. Somehow,his gang buddies knew the location of the shower room, and decided to construct a tunnel that was one mile long and high enough for someone to stand up and walk. Oops,sorry,about that walking statement,the tunnel had a rail line that allowed a person to ride a motorcycle and get out of jail for free.

I wonder if the government of Mexico has considered offering El Chapo the job of rebuilding the country.

Donald, Donald, Goes On And On

There is no doubt that at this moment in time Donald Trump is experiencing a rush that is better than getting high with cocaine. He is feeling the rush of power, he is feeling more powerful each time he goes before an audience and shouts his hate message. Donald is discovering there are millions of Americans who hate immigrants, hate illegal immigrants, and hate anything to do with the Muslim religion. Donald told a packed audience who applauded with enthusiasm when he shouted: “When its all said and done, I will win the Hispanic vote. I am going to win the Hispanic vote because I am going to create jobs. I will take them away from China.”

It would be interesting if Donald would at least make clear what type of “jobs” will be created and how can an American president create them? There is no question that he has fallen in love with his voice. Now comes the hard part, persuading Americans to join in this fervent love of Donald.

I wonder if Donald would spare a moment of his time and clean up the mess with Greece

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

These days Pope Francis sounds most like Karl Marx.

The only American leaders who match the goals of Pope Francis are Sanders and Obama.

As a Jew, I so wish we had a Pope Francis somewhere in our religion.

I doubt if Catholics on Wall Street this week will go to Mass.

Strange as it must seem, but only a Catholic from Latin America is fighting for the poor.

I wonder what Pope Francis thinks about Donald Trump-“dung of the devil?”

Now,how about women in the Catholic Church??

Dung Of The Devil!

There is good news for Catholics, and there is bad news for Catholic Republicans seeking the nomination for President. Pope Francis came out swinging against unbridled capitalism which he termed to be the “dung of the devil.” He made clear that Catholics cannot be only concerned with the “mentality of profit at any price.” He also connected the attitudes of modern capitalists as reflecting a “new colonialism” which ignores the rights of those who labor for basic needs. Workers have “sacred rights of labor, lodging and land.”

One knows that Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum and Jeb Bush, who are Catholics, will challenge the right of unbridled capitalism on the ground that gathering wealth in the long run benefits those who are poor. OH, what can these Catholics make of the Pope Francis claim that “Mother Earth” must be respected. I don’t think our coal companies will be pleased with the argument our Mother Earth should not be abused, anymore than poor people should be.

Handling Gang Wars

Finally, someone who runs a police department got fired. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake has discharged her top cop, Anthony Batts,not merely for the fiasco surrounding the death of Freddie Gray in a police van, but for handling demonstrations and the rise in crime. Here in Chicago, death is a constant visitor within poor areas as gangs fight one another with guns and destruction. So,how about a few new ideas:

1. Bring together gang leaders and offer to pay them for reducing crime within there area of operation.

2. Instead of sending people to jail for non-violent crimes, pay them one-fourth the cost of being in jail for not being a criminal.

3. Create a UN organization of criminal gangs to work together for peace.

4. Work with corporations to organize new economic developments in crime areas.

These steps can not be any worse than what occurs these days.

Mouth Never Ceases Roaring!

There are few certainties in life, but if one lives in the United States of America one knows that sometime today, the red headed guy will utter some profound observation of life. OK,so there were some unconfirmed comments by certain members of the LIBERAL media that claim the Red Headed one said something nasty about Mexicans. Well, Donald once again trumped those making false accusations against the only man ready,willing, and able to defeat any terrorist group with one hand tied behind his back. “I have a great relationship with the Mexican people. I have many legal immigrants working for me. And,most of them come from Mexico! They love me. I love them. And, I’ll tell you something. If I get the nomination, I’ll win the Latino vote!!”

When Donald says he will do something,he will do it. That’s OK, he is willing to give Hillary the Armenian vote.

Marco Rubio On Cuba

WE decided to interview Senator Rubio as to what should be American policy toward Cuba.

M: So, Marco,your family is from Cuba so I assume that this topic is among those you understand very well.

R: My family escaped from Cuba in order to demonstrate their opposition to the Castro gang.

M: I believe your father arrived in America in 1956 but Castro did not assume power until 1959

R: Let’s not play liberal tricks, my grandparents hate Castro, my father hates Castro, my mother hates Castro, and so do I!

M: Ok, no more quibbling about minor issues. So, what should policy be towards Cuba?

R: Isolation. Pretend there is no Cuba.

M: I sort of thought that has been our policy for over fifty years.

R: Well, continue this policy and I am certain the people of Cuba will rebel.

M: Will you lead a band of Cuban patriots and overthrow Castro?

R: Excuse me, I do not believe in violence.

M: So, how do we end the Castro brothers?

R: Patience. Fifty five years is not enough. Just hold firm and I guarantee that within 100 years the Castro brothers will be dead. Problem solves.
