Oh Dem Tricky Americans!

There are moments when I wonder what it would be like to live in the world of Vladimir Putin in the beloved land of Mother Russia. Member of the Russian legislature proved that Russian legislators are even crazier than those in America. He apparently is a secret member of the Tea Party. According to Deputy Vyacheslav, the reason NASA revealed information about possible water on Mars was it was an attempt to capture the headlines and prevent Putin’s speech to the UN General Assembly being the main feature of the day.

According to him,”Putin’s speech, of course, was the central element of the UN General Assembly meeting.” It makes one wonder whether some Tea Party folk ought to head for Russia since there are plenty of fellow nut cases in that land. How about Ted Cruz running for President of Russia??

Donald Has A Plan

There is good news in America, Donald Trump finally informed the American people as to exactly what one of his “plans” would actually cost this nation. Donald wants to end income tax for anyone earning under $50,000,he wants to cut taxes on our poor rich folk who now might, if they have an incompetent tax prepared pay the figure of 39.6%. As you recall, Mitt Romney never paid more than 16%. Anyway,the great Donald Trump plan would result in a deficit over a ten year period of TEN TRILLION DOLLARS!

Oh,I forgot, Donald is going to avoid this deficit by “reducing waste in government and ending loopholes.” I have been following American politics since 1940 and each and every person running for president has promised to “reduce government waste.” Donald,please give us the details how reducing government “waste” and which loopholes will prevent the TEN TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT. Just asking.

Vladimir On Center Stage

There is only one place that makes Vladimir Putin feel comfortable or welcome,and that is center stage on the world. He went to the United Nations and actually,not only talked with President Obama, but shook his hand. Putin is ready for action, whether it be attacking gays and lesbians in Russia or attacking ISIS in Syria. Of course, the great Russian army has yet to actually take the stage in fighting people since the 1990s when it bombed to hell ‘terrorists’ in Chechnya. Since then it has handled gays and lesbians with firmly, as well as women who sing songs that Vladimir does not like.

Anyway, there are now Russian planes in Syria,and Vladimir is ready to have his ‘advisors’ empower Syrian soldiers to bomb the hell out of Syrian towns, kill some thousands of civilians, and somehow, end the war in Syria. At this point in time,Obama is ready to welcome just about anyone to fight against ISIS. Has he considered:

1. Ted Cruz might lead fervent Christians into battle for the Lord.

2. Or, Scott Walker now has time to actually fight someone who can shoot back. After all,he handled unions with great talent.

Just imagine, Ted Cruz and Vladimir Putin leading Christians into battle for the Lord!

Let’s Get The Baby Killers!

Republican congressmen had their knives ready for the arrival of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood. Among other attacks on Ms. Richards, Republicans were upset that she earned $520,000! Day after day men and women from Wall Street appear in Congress and they ordinarily earn millions of dollars, heck, some earn $100,000,000 but not a squeak out of Republicans –they probably want to solicit some of those millions in campaign donations.

Cecile Richards was calm,she spoke with clarity, she responded to their questions with a sense of dignity. “Planned Parenthood has been in the news recently because of deceptively edited videos released by a group dedicated to making abortion illegal.”

She displayed dignity and responsibility. Sorry, those qualities are not ordinary ones found in this Congress.

On Secession

I continue to read statements from Republican candidates about their dislike of liberals, northerners, Democrats, Socialists, abortion supporters, those who support health care for people unable to afford it, and money wasted feeding lazy folk. It becomes increasingly clear that modern Republicans, unlike the era of Republican Abraham Lincoln, simply do not enjoy being a part of the United States of America. Just about every Southern state receives back more from the federal government than it pays in taxes to the federal government and all they complain about is that their tax money is going to Washington and what do they get back?

Obviously, they receive money that came from northern and western states. They are welfare lazy bums who take from we liberals, we supporters of abortion of gay right or Food Stamps. So, how about:

Just return to the idea of secession and leave the USA!

Pope Francis Is Gone–For Now

Well, Pope Francis has left the United States and left in his wake some Republicans such as John Boehner wondering which moral and ethical principles a Catholic must adhere to in the political world. There is no doubt that John Boehner was impacted–as a Catholic- regarding his political beliefs–and behavior- which resulted in his departure as leader of House Republicans. Unfortunately, Catholics like Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush were left in confusion regarding moral issues for a Catholic.

For Pope Francis, the real story is what comes next in his life as a Catholic leader.For example:

1. Can he institute any changes for the role of women in the Catholic church?

2. Can he speak for the rights of homosexuals as Catholics?

3. Can he alter the power of conservative Cardinals?

4. Can he address the issue of birth control and abortion?

Most probably the answers to these questions begin by reducing the power of conservative Cardinals to hamper reform.

Carly Is A Tough Woman

Each person who seeks the presidency must initially present a persona,an image that would resonate with people,and in some way or other present themselves as a tough guy-or gal–who is ready to meet the bad guy at the OK Corral and shoot it out. Carly Fiorina is determined to take on terrorist groups such as Planned Parenthood and let them know when the sheriff is in town, they had better head on out. Carly is not afraid to stand up to an organization that has been around most of the twentieth century without causing much fuss.

But, these are new times and we need tough sheriffs to save us from terrorists. After taking care of Planned Parenthood, Carly went after the US Senate which issued a comprehensive and well documented study that proved waterboarding produced little if any meaningful information. According to Carly, the report “undermined the morale of a whole lot of people who dedicated their lives to keeping the country safe.”

Carly,the EVIDENCE concluded they did NOT keep the country safe. Carly Fiorina is a modern version of Senator Joseph McCarthy.

Beware False Prophets

John Boehner issued his last hurrah about the state of American politics and it was not full of praise for his fellow Republicans. Boehner warned:”Beware of false prophets. There are people out there spreading voice about how much they can get done. We have groups here in town, members of the House and Senate,who whip people into a frenzy how they can accomplish things they know can never happen.” Mr. Boehner is NOT talking about Democrats, he is NOT talking about Barack Obama, he IS talking about the Tea Party and voices such as Ted Cruz and company.

There is something very sad about John Boehner, he really wanted to accomplish some goals for the Republican Party. He knew, as a politician that achieving goals in a democracy means-COMPROMISE. I did not agree with his goals, but he is right that democracy is based upon the principle of compromise.So, he departs with a sad farewell.

Storm In A Teacup

The Tea Party decided to have a tea party but the enemy was not the British, but one of their own kind. They declared war on John Boehner who undoubtedly represented the worse form of liberal. He simply did not wish to wage war on Planned Parenthood since there were a few more important issues than an organization which provides information and services to women. Gee, they assist women to remain healthy even when hey are dealing with pregnancy.Boehner understood the House of Representatives could pass a bill that defunded Planned Parenthood, but President Obama would simply veto the bill and everyone would be back to square one.

No doubt, Congressman Boehner, a devout Catholic took to heart words of compassion from the Pope. Boehner is a tired man who has spent past few years defending hate and hate. He just got so tired that he needed a time out from politics and so he has resigned. The Tea Party will continue on its juvenile delinquent path and there will be speech after speech, but the end result will be– nothing changes.

Donald Vs Marco

Donald Trump is in need of someone he can blast in order to prove that he can insult anyone who dares to oppose the Great Man. For some reason, he has decided to make his target a Senator from the state of Florida, one Marco Rubio. Marco is the child of immigrants which naturally makes him suspect when it comes to issues confronting this nation. According to Donald,”Marco Rubio,who by the way has the worst attendance rain in the U.S. Senate.I’ve never seen a young guy sweat so much, he drinks water, water, water.”

Naturally, anyone who drinks a lot of water is definitely the right person to lead this nation. Now, if he drank whiskey or beer, that would be another thing and prove he has leadership qualities. Frankly, I do not understand why Marco is in this race, he has been in the Senate for six years and his record displays–what? Name a single law that he has supported. He does have the ability to make one erroneous comment after another about foreign policy. His comments on the Iranian nuclear accord are simply expressions of ignorance.
