Wither Egypt?

The media discusses problems in Iraq or Syria or the ever present Iran, but few are interested in Egypt. Since the dawn of the Arab Spring there has been great hope that Egypt could step up to the plate and become a leader of secular Muslims who will reduce the power of Islamic terrorism. General Sisi replaced General Mubarak who had for the moment been replaced by Mr. Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, and of course Mubarak had replaced General Sadat who had replaced General Nasser. Lost in this endless shuffle of strong men has been the arrival of a single non-strong man who could focus upon developing an economy and providing jobs for the population.

General Sisi has handled the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood by arresting thousands and placing thousands on trial in order to get the court to rule they should all be executed, including the inept former President Morsi. The end result has been growing development of terrorism which can draw upon the presence of millions of unemployed men who just want to do something today. Yesterday, the newly arrived ISIS folks shot a missile that blew up a navy vessel. Neither ISIS nor the Muslim Brotherhood will be defeated by guns. How about trying some jobs?

Reactions To Iran Surrender

I decided to check with the only loyal people left in this nation after Obama and Kerry sold us out to Iran.

Donald Trump: Elect me president and I will personally lead the invasion of Iran.

Rick Perry: I need a few moments to check exactly what is the location of Iran.

Jeb Bush: My brother had it right, Iran is part of the Axis of Evil–Iraq, North Korea and Iran.

Chris Christie: If I can take out a bridge, just let me take out Iran!

Scott Walker: I stood up to teacher and firemen and police unions, just wait until I stand up against those Iran Muslims!

Rand Paul: Let me check with dad as to what I should be for.

Bibi Netanyahu: Elect me President of the US and just watch those bombers bomb!

George Pataki: Are you really asking me questions about world events?

Ben Carson: I stand for free enterprise and hard work. That solves all problems.

Plot To Take Over Texas!

During the past month thousands of Texans have gathered arms and ammunition in order to stand ready to protect their state against a Federal government take over of the loyal, God-fearing and Gun-loving folk of Texas. An Army military exercise, Jade Helm 15 has aroused the suspicions of the Texas government. The Governor and thousands of Texans know this is no “military exercise.” It is simply a cover for another Obama plot to destroy all we hold dear in our beloved land. Examine the facts and judge for yourself.

1. Walmart stores closed as part of the plan to store weapons for the US Army.

2. The Army was placing barbed wire to hold those arrested when Obamatakeover occurred.

3. Why was this exercise being conducted in a Red State? How come,not in a Blue state?

4. Many are wondering if this exercise was coordinated by ISIS. At this moment, ISIS forces are on the attack. Coincidence??

5. Is there a connection between the decision of former Governor Rick Perry to seek the Republican nomination and this so-callled military exercise? Was the special prison being built designed to hold Rick Perry?

If America elects a Muslim from Africa, is there any wonder that loyal Americans are frightened of the government??

Bibi Says NO, NO, NO!

It is quite apparent that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the chief foreign policy advisor for Republicans. After all, he “speaks for Israel.” Of course, he has never captured more than 30% of the Israel vote. He made clear the agreement with Iran was a “disaster” that would change the world and lead to permanent war. An assumption of the current Israel government is that a permanent state of war is the best path to peace. UK Foreign Minister Philip Hammond expressed the frustration of many: “The question you ask yourself is what kind of a deal would have been welcomed in Tel Aviv. The answer of course is that Israel does not want any deal with Iran.”

The basic question to pose Netanyahu is what exactly is his alternative. Ordinarily, he cries out for war against Iran. So,what would occur if US planes bombed nuclear sites in Iran?

1.Hezbollah would send its 30,000 missiles towards Israel.

2. Assume that 95% are shot down. That leaves about 5,000 missiles hitting Israel.

THAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE THAT BIBI NEVER MENTIONS!

Pluto Gets A Visitor

I am 85 years old this year so there is only a slim possibility that I will be around when in 2030 a new giant telescope that is five times the size of the Hubble telescope is swung into action. However, I was alive today to see pictures from Pluto. Gee, Pluto has mountains, gee, Pluto has a smooth surface. Sorry,there is absolutely no sign of any form of life on this planet. Pluto is at the end of our galaxy and soon will be heading past our minor point in the universe on its way toward the stars.

I believe we Americans made a horrible mistake in giving up further exploration of the Moon. After the fifteen or sixteen or God knows how many Republican candidates leave the stage, the real human drama will continue as we take the first hesitant steps on the voyage that must be taken-venturing into the unknown. I hate to inform Republicans but if there really is a God, that entity is somewhere in the stars.

Heck,all this science stuff gives Republicans a headache.

Bill Cosby, Hero Or Villain?

I encountered Bill Cosby while in my thirties and never regarded him as a classic comic. He had his “bit,” and it was popular for many years. Then he went into television and portrayed the humorous, but loving father who was always ready to utter some wise words of advice. Unfortunately, Bill Cosby never got around to listening to the advice he handed out to his television children. There now is no question that Bill was a predator who abused women. He used his popularity, his fame as the wise decent man on the Cosby show to entice women into his bed, along with a few drugs.

President Obama at his press conference sort of summed up the Cosby epic. “If you give a woman, or a man for that matter, without his or her knowledge– a drug and then have sex with that person without consent, that’s rape.” Period!

Scott Steps Up To Plate

Another week, another Republican candidate for president. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has formed a super pac, and he has let Americans know where he stands.

1.He is a Christian. Goes to church.

2. Of course, some of his best friends are Jews, not that he would ever marry one.

3. He takes on labor unions. He compares his stand against the Teacher Union with the stand he will take against ISIS. Just about the same threat to America from either of these groups.

4. He stands firmly in favor of the $7.25 cents an hour for workers. He worked while going to college, so why not students today? Of course, never finished college, but so what? After all, he knows more than any college professor. Just have one of them challenge him to a duel no how to organize a super pac!

5. Scott talked with our Founding Fathers and they informed him the idea of a photo ID was on the tip of their tongues when writing the Constitution.

6. Scott never allowed a single dollar to be given Planned Parenthood because he believes in the right of women not to have rights concerning their own body.

Some believe in paying workers decent salaries so they will purchase goods and buy houses, Scott is convinced that our beloved wealthy folks are just dying to pay decent wages.

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.

The Art Of Political Selling

There is one pattern that has existed throughout the Obama administration, and that is his inept political ability to sell a good idea. Obama always behaves like a college professor who lectures and then assumes his “students” understand what was presented. Compared to Theodore or Franklin Roosevelt or John Kennedy or Abe Lincoln, Obama has completely failed to SELL his ideas. Sorry Barack, but a great president is a great salesperson.

1. Lincoln was a master of presenting complex ideas along with a joke or a demand that Americans display their greatness as people.

2. John Kennedy on day one of his presidency told the American people “what can you do for America?”

3. In 1940, England faced Nazi Germany alone and had run out of guns and ammunition. Most Americans did not want to go to war. So, in one of his fireside chats with Americans, Franklin Roosevelt used this metaphor: “if your neighbor’s house catches fire, and he comes to you asking to borrow a fire hose, surely, you would give him one. We are going to lend England destroyers and rifles and other equipment.” And, so England got military supplies that enabled it to continue fighting Germany. I have never heard a single metaphor from Obama that enables people to grasp an issue.

4. One night after America was at war, Franklin Roosevelt asked the American people to listen to him as he reviewed where American soldiers were fighting. By late evening, one out of two Americans had listened and followed his analysis of where fighting was going on. How many Americans today even know where Syria or Iraq are? Obama has never discussed these areas of fighting with Americans following with a map.

5. To this day I am shocked that we Americans never received an explanation about Obamacare from the government.

If Obama wants to sell this accord with Iran, he must become a president who talks WITH AMERICANS!

Donald Offers Nazi Salute!

Latest polls indicate that Donald Trump is on a roll. He is now leading Republican candidates and has surged ahead of Jeb Bush. According to Donald, Jeb is just another one of those spoiled brats who depended upon his wealthy family to get ahead. Of course, Donald was born to a millionaire real estate tycoon, and guess which occupation the red headed Trump entered? Polls are tricky. We are just at the beginning of a roller coaster that will take candidates up and down like a merry go-round.

The one certainty we know about Donald Trump is that he is bound to commit some idiotic comment or make a fool of himself. Yesterday, his staff released a photo of an American flag with him in the photo. Oh,there were soldiers marching. Sorry Donald, but photos of Nazi German soldiers marching will not collect the idiot vote among Republicans.
