The Carson Factor

The media is upset about Donald Trump as a potential candidate for president. But, the even more bizarre candidate is Doctor Ben Carson. Yes, Carson is a doctor, yes, Carson is of black skin, yes, Carson lacks any understanding of what is necessary within the United States, let alone the world. I doubt if he could even identify the location of Syria. I doubt if he could conduct a conversation, logical, illogical, about any issue in foreign affairs. But,this nincompoop is now the second choice in Iowa among Republican voters. What does this say about the condition of politics in the United States? How did we arrive at a point in history when someone lacking ANY knowledge of conditions in our society or the world is now the second choice among Iowa Republicans?

1. Carson appeals to those who hate Obama and what better way to display the hatred than to support a black candidate?

2. Carson, like Trump, is the anti-politician, so why not elect someone who is completely non-political and ignorant?

We Americans are lost in anger and ignorance!

Russians Blast America

Russia is a land governed by Vladimir Putin,a sort of Donald Trump, Dick Cheney and Ted Cruz put together. Vladimir has convinced the Russian people they are surrounded by evil nations seeking to take over the only prosperous nation in the world–RUSSIA! Slowly,but continually, the Russian government is driving off the TV screen any pictures or words that might contradict his version of reality. A recent poll, conducted by the Russian government,reveals that many Russians believe:

1. America is an immoral nation.

2. Americans are not warm to one another.

3. Americans only repeat as truth what they see or hear on TV.

4. Americans hate and envy Russia.

Ironically,just about everything they say about the US would aptly apply to Russia.

The Russian economy is tumbling each day. The Russian ruble has lost most of its value.There is inflation and loss of jobs. So, Russians, how about heading for immoral USA?

Oh, in Russia it is against the law to publicly support gay rights. I wonder if American gays would enjoy the free land of Russia?

NRA WORDS OF COMFORT

The National Rifle Association is very concerned that some people might misunderstand the recent shooting on live television of two people. If people see such horror they may get the wrong idea and blame guns for the shooting. Guns had nothing to do with these murders, heck the guy could have used a knife and stabbed a dozen people. Above all,the NRA is warning Americans about allowing their emotions to overcome their common sense about guns.

Sometimes in a fight we can become so emotional that everyone and everything starts looking like the enemy,even when they are there to help us.” Guns are not the enemy, they are simply your friend in need. Just remember:

1. First they came for a bullet

2. Next they came for a law that would reduce the number of people who could have guns.

3. Next they banned a few guns.

4. Next they banned all guns.

5. AND NEXT THEY CAME FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!!

Syria Forever?

Each day I gaze at pictures in the newspaper or online which depict frightened people fleeing from Syria. They have left by the millions, desperately seeking a place of safety and comfort, at least for the moment. They are homeless, they are alone, they are abandoned by their country’s leaders and the world. On their face is the same look one saw during the 1930s when Jews were fleeing Nazi Germany in hope that someone would offer some form of safety. No nation stepped forward. Today, Sweden has been doing the job of offering a home, but there are limits to that small country. So, what can be done?

1. The UN should organize a program of relocation that spreads refugees around the world. Sorry, that is the only alternative.

2. Somehow,some way,Russia and Iran must persuade President Assad to step aside.

3. Just imagine the reaction of Donald Trump if a few thousand Syrian refugees showed up on our shores!

Wisconsin Milk

Scot Walker is a Republican. Scott Walker has a hero named Donald Trump. Scott Walker wants a high, high wall built on the border with Mexico, heck, he even wants one built on the Canadian border a– all three thousand miles long. Scott Walker has taken a stand against immigrants, and wants them to quit taking jobs away from Americans. He wants an “immigration system that works. I don’t think you do it with amnesty.”

There is one slight problem for Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. According to the Wisconsin Dairy Association about HALF THE WORKERS ON FARMS ARE IMMIGRANTS! According to dairy farmer John Rosnow, his anti-immigrant proposal would “put most farmers in the state out of business.”

Oh, well, Scott broke unions and now he will break farmers!

Female Trump Speaks

On occasion I become somewhat confused when Republican discuss issues of world importance. Sarah Palin ran on the ticket with John McCain for the presidency in 2008. As I recall, she embraced McCain as a great man and a born leader. Donald Trump insulted a war hero whose name is John McCain and the woman who ran with McCain now raves about the wonderful Trump man! “Voters crave the anti-status politician. They want results. They need someone who will fire all the politically correct police. Everything about Donald Trump is avant garde.

These comments are so incredibly insensitive toward a man who lifted Palin from being an unknown governor into a major political figure. How low can this woman sink?

A Man Died In Prison

His name was Jamycheal Mitchell and he was 24 years old. I am surprised that you never heard about his infamous crimes.No,he did not blow himself up and lead to the death of dozens. No, he did not spout terrorist talk on social media. No, he did not beat up old people. This man was charged with the heinous crime of: stealing a bottle of Mountain Dew, a Snickers candy bar, and a cup cake. This haul must have cost the grocery store owner at least $5 of his hard earned money.

Anyway, the cops came, grabbed the notorious cup cake robber and took him off to jail. He was there for FOUR MONTHS before dying in his cell yesterday. What the hell has happened to this nation?? Americans just lost ONE TRILLION DOLLARS due to the stock market collapse. Not a single person responsible for that crime will see one minute of jail time.

Does Obama Hate Jews, Israel and So On?

I continually encounter Jews who insist the following:

1. Barack Obama is the worst president in history.

2. President Obama hates Jews.

3. President Obama hates Israel.

4.President Obama wants Iran to wipe out Israel.

Then again,there is the record of President Obama

1. He has numerous Jews surrounding him every day.

2. Under his administration Israel has been given $15 billion in military aid.

3. Under his administration the Dome was built which can knock down incoming missiles.

4. Secretary of State John Kerry has spent months attempting to assist Israel to reach an agreement with Muslim leaders.

If such actions represent, HATE, please get Obama to hate me!

I Don’t Serve Gays!

Members of the Republican party are among them most rapid defenders of the US Constitution and continually remind one and all about our FOUNDING FATHERS. The very first amendment to the US Constitution was a clear statement that religion had no place in the government. They had witnessed during colonial times efforts by the British government to require support for the Anglican Church. The essential theory of the new government was that each person had a right to practice an individual religion but when it came to government, none was allowed.

There are some county clerks in the state of Kentucky who refuse to issue marriage licenses to gays and lesbians because their religion forbids them to do anything that would support such individuals. Of course, the same people who support this action are terrified at the prospect of Sharia law. Idiots, you can not oppose imposing religion upon government employees while defending the right of government employees to impose their religion upon citizens!

Jeb Does It Again!

Let me get this straight–the grandfather of Jeb Bush was a distinguished US Senator,his father was a President, and his brother was sort of a President. One would assume with that political background, Jeb would understand something about the world of politics. Jeb was down Texas way when someone raised the issue of “anchor babies,” those born to mothers who were not American citizens at the moment of their birth. Jeb wanted to make clear his position on anchor babies. When he refers to those babies, he means “those born to Asian parents.”

Jeb, Jeb, my little Jeb boy. There are a few million people in this nation who come from Asian societies and are working to become US citizens. So, my little Jeb boy, when you refer to “Asians” you just insulted a few million people.

Jebbie, my boy, a bit of advice: Whatever the Donald man says,you say the opposite. At least you will not wind up insulting people –who vote!
