NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump will win the Iowa caucus and who the fuck cares?

If I could just hear a word Ben Carson says, then maybe I could figure out why I would not vote for him.

Marco Rubio is unable to utter a sentence in the English language without referring to why we can  not allow Hillary Clinton to become president.

Great day in Chicago yesterday, only three people murdered!

I still do not know, nor does anyone know, One single plan that Trump would seek to pass for legislation.

Gee, I miss the nonsense that Carly Fiorina utters.

A good Christmas  present for Ted Cruz this year would be one friend in the US Senate who would co-sponsor a bill that he proposes.

Iowa Today And Tomorrow

At this very moment,a  bunch of evangelical white men and women are voting in Iowa to determine which man or woman should be the next president of the United States of America. Yes, they are white folk, yes, they love corn, and yes, they are angry because someone or some thing has TAKEN AMERICA FROM THEM! Of course, if asked, they will respond the following things have been stolen by alien creatures:

1. The FAMILY they were raised with that includes a mom, a pop, and grand folks, and some kids.

2.  Our FIGHTING FORCES are gone due to  Barack Obama. We only have 12 aircraft carrier forces to match the ONE aircraft carrier possessed by China.

3. Marco Rubio wants to know what has happened to our AIR FORCE. We only  have the best air force in the world, but there is one problem–it has NO air force to fight! Damn ISIS, it refuses to get an air force so our air force can beat the hell out of them!

4. Our VALUES are gone! Yes, we no longer have a  society in which white Anglo-Saxons run the show. Now we have Jews, Catholics, blacks, Hispanics, gays, and women demanding a few rights. GOD did NOT want those folks to run Iowa, HE reserved Iowa for the white Anglo-Saxons, just offer up a prayer and see if I am right.

5. GOD up above does not respond to our prayers because HE is angry at the fact we have some black dude as President. GOD wants us to return to the good old days when white preachers led us in prayer and there were no synagogues or mosques to compete with the message sent by white Protestants to God up above.

So, all you white Iowa folks go ahead and vote today. As a group you sure represent the America that once was and no longer is. God for the good old days when mom spent her day cooking and cleaning and dad earned the money!

Jeb Bush Speaks Quietly

The Donald man was not on the stage so Jeb felt very comfortable in actually expressing his ideas to an audience.

“As you know,my  dad was a great president, and my loving brother was a president, and I intend to be a president. As for my other qualifications, you can read all about my  ideas by checking my  web site. I love all people, and that includes hard working Hispanic immigrants. If elected I will tear down the Trump wall just as Ronald Reagan tore down the wall in Berlin. I will get his nation moving again, just check my  web site for the specific ways to accomplish this task.  Unlike Marco who speaks one way on Monday  and another on Tuesday, I will always speak the same way seven days a week. Just check my web site for the things that I will say. God, its great being on a stage without that guy who takes over whenever I try to speak. If you wan to know what I think about that guy, just go to my web site.”

Ted Cruz Cruises Into Battle

There is no doubt if Republicans want a candidate who is ready for war, then simply gaze in the direction of Ted Cruz. He is the 2016 version of Dick Cheney Rumsfeld, raring for a good fight and ready to send Americans into battle while he remains behind at headquarters to direct battles. He wants to carpet bomb ISIS into hell. Of course, ISIS in Syria is embedded cities where there are civilians, but Ted is a Christian who cares about saving the lives of unborn children, as far as born people, then blast them into hell.

“I am the only person on this stage who truly believes in Jesus Christ. I am the only one who adheres to his teaching –kill the bastards and send those illegal immigrants back to Mexico. If elected, on my first day, Hillary Clinton will be headed to jail, on my second day, Bill Clinton will join her there. I am from Texas. God bless Texas, God bless guns. God bless me.”

Chris Christie On Any Topic

During the Republican debate, Governor Chris Christie was asked about the criminal behavior of his staff in blocking lanes on the George Washington bridge. The Governor offered a powerful defense.

“I want to make on thing clear, as Governor I worked to end the corruption that I found from previous Democratic governments.  If I am elected President of this great nation, feel assured that I will protect the farmers of Iowa. I will make certain that not a single college graduate has any loans to pay off. I am a problem solver, unlike those on this stage who are US Senators spending their days  arguing about nothing. You raise the issue of immigrants, well, I am the only one who will end such  discussion by a  law that ensures those immigrants who do not belong here, head back to Mexico and those who are from Muslim nations are returned to the Muslim group who sent them here. I WILL protect our borders!!”

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump is a modern Machiavelli.

By the way, is Jeb Bush still in the race for president?

Chris Christie makes a ponderous impression when he speaks.

I so miss Carly Fiorina spouting her tough talk.

Just think, a nation founded by immigrants does not like immigrants!

Vladimir Putin has been very quiet this past month. I wonder why?

The more Republicans shout and scream, the more Barack Obama comes across as an excellent president.

Danes Don’t Act Like Danes

The story of the Holocaust is replete with tales of horror, it was a time when people turned their backs on neighbors because they were Jewish. In thousands of examples, the average person gazed away when innocent people were loaded onto trains and sent to their deaths. But within this horror stood the example of the noble people of Denmark who gathered together in order to save the Jews of Denmark.

Fast forward seventy years until 2016. Denmark is the destination of thousands of Muslims fleeing death in the Middle East. A new law in Denmark requires each of these refugees to turn over to the Danish government any wealth they possess over the sum of $1100. This money will be used to care for refugees.

Oh, in fairness, the Danish government will allow refugees to keep anything that has sentimental value.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Ben Carson comes across as a little boy who has wandered onto the playing fields  where the older guys are playing.

Strange but it took Donald Trump to wipe out Ted Cruz.

Marco Rubio just does not cut it as a potential president. He comes across as the kid brother.

Ask yourself this question: which of these candidates would John Kennedy select as his running mate?

Jeb looks so forlorn and lost, he brings out the father in me.

Bernie out to dye his hair.

Not a single candidate these days can utter a word without waving hands in the  air.

Bernie The Candidate

I watched the Democratic debate and decided to view this interaction through the eyes of someone who is 65 plus. Those who fall into this category lived through the administrations of Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill  Clinton and then Bush and Obama. The dominant characteristic of president in this group was they were calm during a crisis. They spoke softly and firmly in order to calm the American people.

Bernie Sanders is the complete opposite of how American presidents present themselves to the public. He shouts, he waves arms, he speaks with a voice threatening doom and destruction. He speaks about being a “democratic Socialist.” I also have been a Democratic Socialist my entire life, but I make certain to cast ideas within the framework of the American experience, because the word “Socialist” does not play well with 95% of Americans.

Bernie appeals to those who are under the age of 30, and loses just about anyone over the age of 65. He fails to place his ideas within the American context. Examples:

He shouts “Socialism” instead of quietly saying: “I want to restore the free enterprise system to ALL Americans. If I earn $116,000 I pay 6% of my salary in Social Security, if I earn $600,000 I pay 1% of my salary in Social Security. Let’s give every American an opportunity to pursue his or her economic dreams.” Instead, he cites foreign nations. Sorry Bernie, that is a no, no. Why not cite Theodore Roosevelt or Franklin Roosevelt?

Bernie presents himself as someone outside of the American dream. He never cites Abraham Lincoln who created free land grant colleges. Why not?

A Girl Who Went To Death

Lost in the conflict within Israel is the continual death encountered by children. Yes, sometimes, not too often, a Jewish Israel child winds up dead, but just about each week some Palestinian child will never return home from her interaction with Israeli soldiers. A 13 year old Palestinian girl left home telling her family that she wanted to do something and wound up trying to stab someone at a Jewish settlement on the West Bank. She was shot to death.

Once upon a time little girls played games with other little girls or sat together giggling and pretending they were grown up girls. Today, death awaits so many children in Palestine or in the West Bank which should belong to Palestine. As a Jew, I am left with sorrow that some how, in some way, the rights of Palestinians could be respected without anyone dying.
