So, What Can Hillary Do?

The candidacy of Hillary Clinton is confronting some serious issues. She continues to emphasize her “experience” when large numbers of young people detest the word, “experience.” They, along with many Americans, want someone who does NOT have any experience because past experience is what got us into the current mess. Let me suggest to Hillary Clinton:

1. Focus on what must be done tomorrow.

2. Emphasize that she wants NEW approaches.

3. Instead of a “revolution” emphasize a New Deal Deal.

4. Be specific about issues such as Student Loan. For example, a president could lower the interest rate on loans.

5. Offer a Rolling Reform plan that would occur over a period of five or ten years.

6. Address the issue  of visas granted to highly educated foreign workers who are taking jobs from highly trained American educated workers.

Marco Sounds Alarm About Terrorists!

America can rest easy today  because we finally have a candidate for president who is not trapped in political correctness. Marco is very upset because  President Obama gave  a speech in a mosque instead of a church.”Look at today: he gave a speech at a mosque. Oh, you know, implying  that there is discrimination against Muslims. Of c course there is discrimination in America of every kind. But the bigger issue is radical Islam And, by the way radical Islam is a threat to Muslims.”

Well, in his speech President Obama warned about radical Muslims who posed a threat to Muslims. So, let me get this straight–Marco Rubio is upset because President Obama made a speech to Muslims warning against radical Islamic terrorists. Sometimes when Marco makes  a speech it is difficult to get the point.

Oh, and Marco promised that if elected Hillary Clinton will go to prison for Benghazi to emails or something.

Jeb Bush–Please Applaud!

I am very  confused because so many politicians give speeches and people applaud without being informed when it was time to place their hands together and inform the speaker of approval for what he or she just said. I have absolutely no idea how this strange custom began in American politics. Jeb Bush, brother of George Bush was giving a speech in New Hampshire during which he spoke with passion and clarity about why he alone was the most intelligent person seeking the presidency. As we all know, mom and dad Bush always regarded Jeb as the bright son and were very disappointed that George somehow got the presidency that had been promised to Jeb.

Anyway,Jeb gave his presentation and was met with absolute silence. Since he is the bright son, Jeb decided to introduce an innovation to the political process. He quietly clapped his hands and said to the audience: ” How about some applause?” WOW! They had never heard such a brilliant idea from any political leader and immediately got their hands together.

First,they applauded him in New Hampshire and next they applauded him in South Carolina and soon all America was inundated with applause!

Rick, We Knew Ye Well

Four years ago on a dark and cloudy night, I first encountered a man from Pennsylvania who wore such incredible sweaters and spoke with a firm voice that most probably  had specifically been given to him by God. He so loved God and scarcely could utter a sentence without mentioning our Lord and thanking him for the bounty of life and supporting the Republican party.

Well, Rick Santorum once again informed America that he no longer would seek the office of President. This was a shock to me. I mean, here was a real Christian unlike the other people seeking the presidency. Sarah Palin might claim to be a Republican but Rick Santorum had wonderful children who never got in trouble. Imagine if America had such a father as head of this nation! Oh Rick,  we always turned to you when moral issues arose because only you could inform us what God thought about them. Only you communicated directly with the Big Guy up in the sky!

Rick, we will miss your wonderful stories and wonderful sweaters and your direct line to God!

Rand Paul Drops Out–Or In

During Republican debates there was one guy at the end with  sort of funny looking hair who stood virtually alone with a bored look as the other candidates shouted and screamed how they hated Obama, how they would rip to pieces Hillary Clinton and how they would cut taxes, provide jobs for all with  great pay and along the way wipe out ISIS and a few other terrorist groups without using one American soldier.

Senator Rand Paul attempted in his quiet ironic manner to poke fun at the nonsense that was coming from his alleged colleagues. He opposed “carpet bombing” desserts and wiping out ISIS with more planes dropping bombs on deserted area of Syria or Iraq. Essentially, he was ignored by  the Donald man and scoffed at by Cruz and Rubio who wanted to build a greater armed force.

Rand Paul is going home and will eventually return to the Senate where he again will be ignored. Such is the fate of any Republican who speaks with honesty and logic.

So Who Won In Iowa?

There is one certainty about  what happened in Iowa last week, someone gain the most votes and supposedly that was Ted Cruz. Naturally, whenever Ted Cruz is involved in any activity that relates to politics, there is need to take a step back and reflect on how he “won.” Donald Trump informed one and all last week that he really was the  person who won the primary because he came in second. Of course, Marco Rubio  also claimed victory for coming in third.

Suddenly, everything is up in the air. Donald Trump is now shouting FOUL! According to Donald: “Ted Cruz did not win in Iowa. He stole it: that is why  all the polls were wrong, and why he got more voted than anticipated. Bad!” It turns out the Cruz campaign sent emails to thousands of people informing them that  Ben Carson had dropped out of the race and guess who he wanted them to vote for? In addition,  voters received a “certificate” indicating they had to vote or else!

Ted Cruz now apologizes even after initially  blaming CNN for the misinformation. All Ben wanted to do was head home and get a change of clothes.

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

I wonder if Ben Carson will return to cutting up bodies now that he has been cut up by Republican politicians?

Ted Cruz oozes anger and hate.

I really feel sorry these days for Jeb Bush, the bright  Bush son.

Donald becomes President and Mike Huckabee is his best servant in the White House.

Youth wants to be served but youth does not want to vote.

Actually, Martin O’Malley made a lot of sense.

Is Carly  Fiorina still alive?

Hillary Can Still Win The Nomination

Yes, Hillary won a squeaker in Iowa, yes, Bernie Sanders will win in New Hampshire. Yes, Bernie is gaining support from young voters. No,  Bernie cannot   gain the support of white males, no, Bernie can  not gain the support of white union members, yes, Hillary Clinton can do much  better among such voters. As of this moment, neither in Iowa nor in New Hampshire has an election taken place in a state which contains black or Hispanic voters and large blocs of union members.

Hillary will not win in New Hampshire but she will win in South  Carolina and in large industrial states. Those are the numbers that count. For the coming months the Sanders movement will inspire young voters to enter the fray. The unanswered question is whether this bloc will actually turn out to vote on election day. They never showed up  in 2010 nor in 2012 and that is why Republicans control Congress.

Who Is On First?

I closely followed the Iowa primary and heard countless hours of analysis regarding who was most probably the winner of the contest. I finally grasped that  180,000 Christian white people were the representatives of the American people. But, it was close to midnight that the fun began as Republicans boasted about their success. It suddenly dawned upon me that to be a Republican politician is to inhabit parallel universe.

Ordinarily in American sports the team which gets the most points or scores the most runs or has the greater number of  touchdowns is the winner. However, in the Republican universe, it goes somewhat differently.

1.  Donald Trump who came in second declared himself the winner because he claimed most experts initially believed he would wind up down at the bottom. So, coming in second means that he confounded the experts and now is champion.

2. Marco Rubio declared himself the winner because he came in third. As everyone knows that third place contestant is automatically declared the winner.

3. Ben Carson came in fourth and headed home to get a change of clothes. He may well be the silent man, but at least he knows when he is smelling up the joint.

Anyway, here is our thanks to Mr.O’Malley who decided to head home to  Maryland and cease seeking the golden sword to lead the nation.

This Land Is There Land

I have always enjoyed hearing the beautiful Woody Guthrie song, “This land is your  land,” which expresses the belief of all Americans that the land on which Theodore Roosevelt created our system of NATIONAL parks to preserve the beauty of our precious natural resources. OH, he was a Republican and for some reason believed that the national beauty could not be turned over to business corporations whose only desire was for money.

The Oregon group of allegedly “true Americans”came to Oregon to foster their belief that those with money  had first claim on what belonged to the entire nation. They arrived with their guns and now one of them is dead because of his desire to seize what belongs to ALL Americans–our precious heritage of wood and streams and plains not being torn to  pieces by oil rigs or coal mines.

Modern Republicans have completely forgot that it was under a REPUBLICAN that the national heritage was preserved. And, Socialists had nothing to do with this  goal.
