Paris Is Burning

The terrorist attacks in Paris represent a new approach to the use of violence in human history. We are now living in an era in which social media is the tool of violence. These attacks could not have occurred without the ability of people who obtained the idea to kill and murder on social media. They, most probably, did not receive any specific orders on how to carry out the violence, heck, just wander around social media and one gets a graduate education in the use of violence. They communicated with one another via social media, they developed their plans to murder via social media, and after their deaths there are hundreds of other terrorists ready to continue their work.

Even as I write, men and women are communicating via social media on how they can become the next glorious group of heroes who murder the innocent in the name of God or whoever. We are in a new era in which those seeking to die for some cause will continue and continue this approach to life –and death. Last night it was Paris, tomorrow it might be London or Moscow or New York. Frankly, no one does not understand how to end the use by terrorists of social media. Perhaps, there is some technological genius who can figure out a way to halt the use of social media for violence.

Paris is Burning and there is no end in sight unless we simply destroyed the monster we created in social media.

Debates That Are Not Debates

During the course of my life I participated in debates both in high school and college. I also taught high school social studies and organized debate teams to enable students to hear various points of view. I thought that was the purpose of debates. Now, in my later years I watch something termed a “debate.” Again, the assumption a “debate” is to present differing points of view to an audience so they can select ideas that make sense. So, along comes something which is advertised as a Republican Debate.

If one person on the stage claims to support cutting out all taxes the rest of the crew will immediately claim they want to end even more taxes. If Donald makes clear he is against illegal immigrants and wants them out of the country. The so-called ‘opposite view’ insists they also want them out,but want more time to accomplish the task. If one attacks Putin, Carly will inevitably announce that she is ready to meet him at high noon to see who can make more tough statements quicker.

There has yet to be any “debate.”

Oh,I forgot Ben who always speaks softly and utters words that no one knows what they mean–but, he is SINCERE.

Carly Can’t Shut Up

There is no question that Carly Fiorina is marketing herself as the anti-Hillary female for Republicans. Once again she attempted to present a tough self to the audience. If President she will end giving aid to Saudi Arabia, she will wipe out Islamist religious leaders in Iran and Syria who deny women the right to drive cars, to go to school, and have the right to vote. She is just sick and tired of these infidels who take our money and ignore fighting against ISIS.

1. Women in Iran attend college, work at corporations, and can drive a car without the need for a women.

2. Saudi Arabia which she cites as our friend does NOT allow women to drive cars, let alone work in the corporate world. Carly, the US does NOT give economic aid to Saudi Arabia.

To sum up Carly: I am a tough person-and-mark-that-well. I do not -take-anything-from-anyone-because-I-am-one-tough-broad.


We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.


There is no question that a President Fiorina will engage in nuclear war to prove that she has balls.

The magic word at any Republican debate is OBAMA. Just say it and then say anything such is that he is the anti-Christ.

Poor Rand Paul is always at the end and always ends with a comment about no war that does not agree with the others.

Jeb wants the world to know that he knows something.

John Kasich wants the world to know that he has actually DONE something.

Ben Carson is the American nightmare candidate who just goes on and on mumbling nonsense.

One day Ted Cruz will make a statement without recalling his brave father who came to America with nothing.

Jeb Bush At Debate

Jeb sort of said some things at the debate that sort of, not exactly totally,but sort of allowed him to come across as someone who actually had an intelligent idea. There is no question that Jeb is just as tough as brother George. He wants to establish a No Fly zone in Syria, he wants to wipe out ISIS, and boy, this is one boy who can really handle any Muslim terrorist group. After all, his brother wiped out Saddam Hussein. As far as Jeb is concerned, if only we had not pulled out of Iraq there would not be any problems. It was all the fault of the dude born in Africa who simply lacks the balls of the great George Bush.

Gee, Jeb, President Obama was carrying out the time table established by some dude named George Bush. So, tell me Jeb, would you have allowed American troops to remain in Iraq if they could be arrested for a local crime and tried in a Sharia court? I sort of have a hunch those Republican religious nuts would have gone sort of wild with anger.

Anyway, we know that Jeb is one tough dude.

John Kasich At Debate

There were moments at this debate when I wondered how this guy John Kasich got stuck with these weirdos Not that John is a fountain of knowledge or wisdom,but he does understand that if you abolish the IRS then one does have a minor problem collecting money for the government. Then again, the group on the stage wants to get rid of any and all government agencies.I was wondering if they wanted to end the Post Office or the FBI or the Treasury or the Education Department and so forth. Kasich describes the tax plans of Trump or Carson or Cruz as utter nonsense. AS a governor of a state he had to use tax money to keep the place going.

John wants everyone to know and he repeats this time after time–I am the only one who actually balanced a budget, I am the only one who served on congressional committees and actually understood something about budgets and how to conduct government. I am certain that anyone with actual experience has no place on this platform of ignorance.

Rand Paul In Debate

Rand Paul stands at the end of the group in more ways than physically. He is completely the opposite of others on the stage. Actually, Rand Paul is the only traditional conservative in the crowd. He opposes any military effort in the Middle East, he points out in a very quiet voice that if one does what Carly desires and creates a “No Fly” are in Syria, that means some Russian planes might get shot down. Has anyone informed Carly that Russia has in its possession a few hundred atomic bombs. Rand understands the consequence of doing something in the name of being tough that ends up destroying the world.

Rand is against regulations.Then again, so is every Republican on the stage against “regulations.” Listening to him and the others blast any and all regulations leads one to wonder would they allow regulations in sport activities? Rand mumbled something about returning power to the states. I hate to inform this group but we once did that–the Articles of Confederation–which worked exactly as Republicans desire –no federal government and power to the states.

The result of this fiasco was the Constitutional Convention which created a strong federal government.

Carly Fiorina At Debate

Carly Fiorina is on a crusade to “rebuild the American military” and use this powerful force to make certain that Vladimir Putin knows who can wipe out whom. She wants to destroy the Caliphate in Iraq and Syria and she willing to send in the boys from America to do the job. Gee, Carly, as I recall we sent in a hundred thousand into Iraq, had four thousand die and over thirty thousand wounded and it didn’t do one bit of good. She mumbled something about getting back the land we had in Iraq, but for the life of me, I don’t recall we ever had any land in Iraq. But, it is clear that she is ready to wipe out Caliphate.

I remain confused concerning her desire to “rebuild the American military.” The current count is the US Navy has TWELVE CARRIER GROUPS–that means a fews aircraft carriers accompanied by destroyers and other ships. At this moment, China has ONE AIRCRAFT carrier–they bought it from another nation. So, Carly, exactly who is the US Navy going to fight on the high seas?–North Korea or Andorra?

Bibi Feels OK?

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is currently in Washington D.C. visiting his arch enemy, Barack Obama and for the very briefest of moments, the man from Jerusalem is not upset. At the heart of this conflict between the Israel leader and the American leader is the reality that no intelligent American president can allow another nation to determine its foreign policy. Netanyahu has met with Republican leaders, he has made clear during an election in the United States that he would prefer the election of a Republican. From the perspective of Netanyahu this is normal behavior, but from the perspective of ANY American politician, this is a blatant interference in the political life of the United States.

The guiding principle of American foreign policy is that our leaders are motivated by the interests of the United States. America seeks to end conflict in the Middle East and that requires the cooperation of ALL nations, including Iran. As long as any Israel leader refuses to negotiate in good faith, there can not be peace in the region. As far as Israel is concerned, there is one basic fact. Unless there is a two-nation conclusion, by 2030 the Jewish people will be a MINORITY within their own nation. That is a piece of reality.

Little Benny Is Upset

It is Tuesday and Ben Carson is once again upset at the media for their attempt to smear him and destroy peace and prosperity in the United States. After all, he is the only candidate who is willing to end the federal government and send power to the States where it belongs. But,right now he is mad at the obvious attempts of the “liberal media” to constantly criticize some honest mistake on his part when they gave Barack Obama a pass and never posed any questions concerning his past life. “Show me someone who is 100% accurate in everything he say happened 40 or 50 years ago. Please show me that person!” Fair enough.

1. He is quite right that no member of the media ever challenged the life of Barack Obama. If you want verification of this comment, just ask Donald Trump, the birther man.

2. Somehow in the back of my mind is something Fox News said about Obama being a Muslim. Probably that never happened.

3. Did someone wonder if he really was born in America?

4. I remember vaguely some talk about his minister who was a radical. Funny thing, Obama was a Muslim who attended a Christian church. Wonder why?

Oh well, Benny is probably right, the liberal media hates him because he has a black skin.
