It’s Getting Hottter

Anyone seeking to be elected for any position in the United States of America is warned that any statement regarding changes in our  weather is akin to an attack on the very foundation of what America holds dear– we are an exceptional The year 2015 set the record for the hottest year since such records were kept back in 1850. Global temperature was 0.75C degrees higher and even higher than the prior record of 0.57C in 2014. So, why this rise:

1. The current group of candidates seeking the Republican nomination produce sufficient  hot air to cause global warming to increase.

2. One hour of Sarah Palin talking, or what goes for a “talk” causes hot air storms to rip through the Middle East and create drought and ISIS to thrive.

The good news is that if Donald Trump were elected President we would not have this daily explosion of hot air. So, vote for Trump if you want to end global warming!

 

Bernie On Foreign Policy

As Hillary Clinton argues that she has greater experience in the area of foreign policy, Bernie Sanders has gone on the offense to prove he knows more how to handle foreign policy.  “Not only did I vote against the war in Iraq, I helped lead the opposition to  the war. There is a difference between experience and judgment.” Sanders is absolutely right to emphasize this difference regarding the war in Iraq. Hillary Clinton blundered, she became afraid that opposing the war would not resonate with the American people who wanted revenge for 9/11.

Bernie Sanders has yet to outline his foreign policy in the Middle East.  Yes, no American boots on the ground. But, that statement is NOT the outline of foreign policy. He needs to delineate exactly how his  presidency  would handle the complex world of the Middle East and its problems. No troops on the ground, but what else?

1. What about poverty in the region?

2. What about the Israel-Palestinian conflict?

Bad Days For ISIS

Republican candidates for President have created this great monster, this all powerful force known as ISIS which threatens the very foundation of America’s existence as a nation. How 30,000 en lacing armored vehicles, planes, ships, and heavy artillery can destroy the United States of America is among the great mysteries of modern times. Yes, ISIS agents can kill a few dozen people in shoot-outs that result in the death of ISIS fighters. This type of attack creates danger for people in a particular area, but will NOT result in the end of America.

An ISIS statement to its forces: “Because of  the exceptional  circumstances   that the Islamic State is  passing through, a decision was taken to cut the salaries of the mujahedeen in half. No one will be exempt from this decision.”

In other words, bombing attacks and ground operations are slowly impacting the fighting ability of ISIS. So much for the end of America!

The inhabitants of Israel have increasingly assumed a defensive position when anyone dares to question policies toward Palestinians. If one makes ANY comment concerning treatment of Palestinians or failures on the part of Israel to work toward peace in their relations with Palestinians, the only comment that comes from the Israel  government is: ANTI-SEMITISM.

US Ambassador Daniel Shapiro was attending a conference called by the Institute for National Security in Tel Avid when he said some very, very bad things.  He questioned whether of not Israel wanted to work toward creation of  two states, one being Israel and the other being Palestine.  He complained: “too much  vigilantism goes unchecked,  and at times there seems to be  two standards, one for Israelis and one for  Palestinians.” He questioned whether or not the current Israel government was committed to seeking peace for all?

Trump And Palin

The old expression that birds of a feather gather together is proving true with Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump for the presidential nomination. Sarah informed religious folk in the state of Iowa that there is only one man in this entire nation who could make America “Great Again” and that is the man from New York, one Donald Trump. She trotted out the usual complaints about Obama, about liberals, about feminists who dare to demand the right to control their bodies, and naturally, warned about THOSE ILLEGALS coming into our country.

Donald smiled, hugged her, gave a kiss on the cheek and felt so proud that the most ignorant person-prior to  his appearance- ever to seek a high office was now endorsing his candidacy. When Sarah Palin talks, the angels weep. There was nothing new about what they said, it is the same speech that will be repeated over and over again–America is in decline, we may be conquered by the 30,000 ISIS soldiers, we are flooded with terrorists, etc..

 

 

 

Jeb Bush On Something Or Other

At each Republican debate my heart goes out to little Jebbie Bush the kid in the middle with a forlorn look on his face that shouts –how in hell did I get stuck with this group of nut cases! Let me offer a sample of how Jeb confronted the bullies who he had to respond to during the evening. After all, Jeb is not the strongest person on the stage and since Carly left for the kiddie’s table he has no one who he could beat in a wrestling match.

“People ask about student loans and Social Security and ISIS.  The solutions are there, but you are not going to  do a work-a-thon in  90 seconds.I try to purge all of that from my mind before the debate.”

Give Donald Trump some credit–he has stopped going after the weak little kid and now focuses on the big bully from Texas. NO, I do not mean George Bush but the refugee from Canada.  Give Jeb some credit, at least he is open about lacking any ideas how to solve any problems.

Boxing For Kids

Psychologists and Sociologists are very interested in an experimental program for children which has been launched in Virginia. A teacher has decided to organize a program that trains kiddies for the political world which awaits them when they become adults. At a time when Republicans insist that Americans are no longer the great exceptional people in the world, she wants to get children prepared for the real world.

Sarah Jordan has created a Fight Club for children in her day care. They are encouraged to fight one another in order to get children accustomed to the real world of a Republican president– each person out for him or her self and the toughest one gets all the cookies.

I assume ISIS keeping careful watch on this  program to toughen up the feeble and weak Americans. I trust Donald Trump now realizes that he has set in motion a program that will produce people ready to shout him down, not merely with their voices, but with their fists!

ISIS Wanders To Asia

One must admit that ISIS guys  sure do enjoy traveling around the world. First in the Middle East, then to Africa and now the guys with  black flags and big swords have arrived in Indonesia. They decided that the fairly moderate Muslims in Indonesia needed a little waking up and proceeded to blow themselves up and kill a few Indonesians along the way. “A group of  soldiers of the Caliphate  in Indonesia targeted a gathering from the crusaders(that’s we non-Muslims)  planting several explosive devices and exploding belts.”

About  five people died. My question is how does one identify the Crusaders when in a foreign land where the overwhelming number of folks are fellow Muslims? I forget the leaders of ISIS are simply as intelligent as Donald Trump and always have a Great Plan. There is scant likelihood many Indonesians really want to welcome guys who blow themselves up.

God Bless Donald Trump

Once again while the Obama administration was trying to figure out how to handle Iran, our beloved leader and sage, Donald Trump beat him to the draw. Yes, Iran has agreed to exchange people held in prison, and guess who was the man who made this happen? No, it was not John Kerry. No, it was not Barack Obama, Yes, it was Donald Trump!

“I have been going wild for years about the prisoners(in Iran). I call them ‘hostages’. So, I have been hitting them hard.  I might have had something  to do with it(exchange of the  prisoners) if you want to know the truth.” Somewhere in Iran some religious leaders at this moment are on their knees praying that Donald Trump will not come after them. Thank God they did his bidding and released the four prisoners.

I trust Ted Cruz is  paying attention how a REAL LEADER functions in dealing with them Muslim terrorists!

0NE PERCENT OWN IT ALL!

There are moments after seeing the latest figures which indicate that one percent of people in the world possess more than 50% of the rest of the world that I wonder what was life like back in the days  of Cro-Magnon folk. Did one family own more than the entire group? When an animal was killed, did one family eat nine-tenths of the animal while the rest were OK getting what was left? Did one family live in this really great stone house while the  others made do with some tents?

I am confused how in the course of human history we evolved into a system in which one percent sort of runs the show and consumes more than the other 99%.  So, it sort of is logical that this system began thousands of years ago before we civilized modern folk arrived on the scene. Or, are you telling me the Cro-magnons and Neanderthals were more emotionally evolved than modern humans?

Then again, did the best hunter sort of get control of the slain animals and decided who got what and who did not unless they did his bidding? Anyway, I’m sort of confused how we got into this weird modern situation in which one percent own so much. Got me!

Then again, what was the Wall Street equivalent for my  ancestors back then?
