Watching CNN Is Fun

These days I watch at least two hours each night of CNN in order to witness the verbal gymnastics of Trump supporters. I confess, after listening to their weird  defense of Donald, one loses track as to who they are or what they actually are saying. Last night two Trump supporters were defending building a Great Wall, and they are certain it will be the Greatest Wall since the Wall of China. A commentator pointed out that there are two National Parks which would have to witness a Wall being built right through them. He also noted the difficult geographic features of the area.

The response was hilarious. It was clear these two ignorant men had no knowledge there were National Parks in the region, when asked about geographic problems,they responded: “If we can get a man on the moon,we certainly can build a Great Wall to keep out Mexican drugs dealers and rapists. There is one certainty about watching Trump apologists on TV, they lack knowledge about what he just said that day. All too often, they are trapped in his comments of the day before which now have been supplanted by another Trump outburst.

Turkey Twirls

During the past four years, the nation of Turkey has played a key role in conflicts raging in the Middle East. It supported the overthrow of President Assad, and opposed the entry of Iranian or Russian troops into the conflict. Ironically, just as it opposed the strong man regime of Assad, its then Prime Minister Recep Erdogan was endeavoring to become the all powerful ruler of Turkey.

On one hand, Erdogan wanted Assad removed, on the other hand, he opposed some of the groups fighting to get rid of Assad. In fact, Erdogan did nothing to prevent thousands of ISIS followers from entering his country and making their way to Syria. Ironically, it was simply a matter of time before ISIS began to target his government. There have been several suicide bomb attacks in Turkey. So,now,Erdogan is sending troops and tanks to fight ISIS. But, he opposes other anti-Assad groups.

One needs a score card to figure out who or what President Erdogan opposes. However, it is clear that he overwhelmingly supports getting more and more power to become the dictator of Turkey!

Donald Meets Great People

Donald Trump sat down with Sean Hannity of Fox News to engage in a sophisticated dialogue concerning the American political situation. They eventually wandered onto the topic of Hispanics. As you recall, last year Donald Trump warned the American people to beware of hordes of Hispanic rapists and murderers swarming across our border and  heading straight for your home to rape your wife, your daughter, your mistress, and God knows who else.

Donald: I have a great meeting with great Hispanic leaders, and there certainly could be a softening, because we’re not looking to hurt people. We have such great people in this country. We have some great  people in this country.”

OK, We now know that we have  some Great people in this country.

OK, we now know that Donald has gobs and gobs of Hispanic friends who simply adore him.

I wonder if Donald Trump could actually express a single sentence without employing the word, GREAT!

Ooops, I forgot, we no longer have a Great Nation.

Save Morality In France!

There is a picture in daily newspapers of four French policemen standing over a Muslim woman on a beach in Nice, France. They are ordering her to TAKE OFF CLOTHES because it is against French law, it is against French values, for women to be on a beach and wearing lots of clothes. For most of my 85 years of life, the issue was that women were taking off TOO MANY CLOTHES ON A BEACH. But, apparently, I did not get the message.

These days in France, somehow, what one wears is a matter of national security. In a nation that has endured several terrorist attacks, how in the hell did they ever reach the conclusion that mistreating Muslim women will result in FEWER terrorist attacks? I thought that in a democracy, one had the right to go swimming wearing a bathing suit. The French had bought secularism to a new level of insanity!

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

If stupidity was a crime, requiring deportation, this country finally would get rid of its Republicans.

Donald has “plans,” and Hillary has emails. Which of these two is the more boring story?

I must confess that Ryan Lochte does look sincere. However, he reminds me of the kid who mom found in the cookie jar.

How come Sanders and Trump people always talk about IMPORTS but not a word about EXPORTS?

Ironically, the Clinton model was Donald Trump–make gobs of money rather than the Jimmy Carter model of engaging in service to others–without any thought of pay.

Not a word from Donald about the fantastic performance of our Olympic squad–they certainly made Americans feel Great.

How come Great Britain almost passed the one billion Chinese in medals?

Trump supporters on CNN always refer to him as “Mr. Trump” while Clinton supporters frequently say, “Hillary.”

Trump went to Baton Rouge to hand out packages, for some reason, he just never got the urge to go to Vietnam and hand out bullets.

If being a  coward was a virtue, Donald Tump, the draft dodger during the Vietnam war would be a Saint.

I wonder why Donald Trump never once has cited his German ancestry.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump wants to reach out to blacks, I guess next to ISIS.

Donald, Republican President Dwight Eisenhower refused to lower the 90% top tax rate on the wealthy during the 1950s, now, he WAS a Lincoln Republican!

I await a story from Trump headquarters which proves that Donald was a Green Beret in Vietnam and won the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Do you get the feeling the GREAT WALL will no longer be discussed by Trump?

I have asked my children that under no conditions are they to say two words to me–Ryan Lochte. Who the hell cares what happened at t he service station?

Frankly, I  was not impressed by behavior of Brazilian fans who did too much booing of opponents. Cheering is OK, not booing in the Olympics.

I have sort of a hunch that American performance at the Olympics proves that we STILL are a GREAT NATION.

I still adhere to my promise to myself in 1950 never to get drunk. I believe there are some guys who wished they made the same promise.

Trump Wants To Be Lincoln Republican!

Donald Trump has embraced the cause of African Americans, he is now a fervent supporter of Hispanics, and urges all to return to  the ideals and values of Lincoln Republicans. Yes, Donald has embraced Abraham Lincoln. Of course, it is doubtful if Trump has the faintest idea who or what Lincoln was or what were his values and goals. So, Donald, here is a primer on Abraham Lincoln.

1. Lincoln pushed through the Homestead Act which gave away 160 acres of free land to any American who wanted to homestead. In other words, Lincoln gave handouts to deadbeats.

2. The Lincoln government financed construction of the Intercontinental railroad. In other words, the GOVERNMENT built things and helped create jobs, NOT private enterprise.

3. Lincoln pushed through the first income tax. Years later, Republican President Theodore Roosevelt pushed for the Constitutional amendment to create the current income tax.

4. President Lincoln used power of the armed forces to crush white people who wanted to keep blacks in slavery.

5. Abraham Lincoln vigorously opposed the “Know Nothing Party” which wanted laws banning entry of Catholics, and restricting the rights of Catholics. Sort of like Donald’s ban on Muslims?

6.Obviously Lincoln believed in a strong FEDERAL government, and wanted restrictions on State governments.

In other words, Donald, your beliefs are the exact opposite of those of Abraham Lincoln.

Christian Terrorist Kills!

Once again Christian terrorists struck the innocent in America. Christian terrorist Derrick Ryan Dearman murdered five people in Alabama, but was caught in Mississippi. For some reason, American newspapers and TV commentators always mention the word,ISLAMIC, or MUSLIM when a person who is of the Muslim religion kills people. People like Bill Maher insist there is something “wrong” with the Muslim religion because some Muslims engage in acts of terrorism. Over and over again Maher must make the comment about “something is wrong with the Muslim religion”

Each year in America over 30,000 people die because of guns, the overwhelming majority are members of the CHRISTIAN religion. Twenty  years ago in Rwanda, Christians murdered 800,000 fellow Christians. In Christian nations of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania it is illegal for gays and lesbians to be who they are. In fact, in these Christian nations, albino children are murdered for their BODY PARTS! YES, this is done by  CHRISTIANS! Is there something wrong with Christianity?

Bombs Away In Turkey

The government of President Recep Erdogan is committed to the goal of ending democracy in Turkey. The so-called ‘coup’ attempt by soldiers has been crushed. Of course,no  one knows if this ‘coup’ was organized by President Erdogan as part of a plan to destroy opposition parties. He used this “coup’ as the means of arresting over 50,000 people,including members of the military, judges, lawyers,teachers,professors,deans of colleges,journalists and he made certain to close any and all opposition journals.  These steps were taken in order to “save democracy” from evil opponents of the president.

At the same time as seeking to end democracy, President Erdogan has stepped up his campaign to destroy the rights of Kurds in Turkey. He prefers to fight Kurdish soldiers who oppose Syrian President Assad even though Erdogan wants to end the regime of Assad. Yesterday, a 13 year old boy walked into a marriage ceremony of Kurds and blew himself up. Most probably by ISIS. In one word, Turkey has become a MESS!
