Obama And Stewart

President Barack Obama appeared on the Jon Stewart show and was delightful. He was relaxed, he told jokes an carefully explained the nuclear accord with Iran. Of course, one wonders why he did not go on national television and explain all aspects of the negotiations and make clear there were safeguards. Obama has constantly refused to use the power of television to get across ideas. He never explained the Affordable Care act. In failing to explain these ideas the president allows Fox News to take control of the dialogue. They set the plate,and all must eat the food that is on their table. Every great American president in the 20th century has used the Bully Pulpit of the mass media to explain complex ideas to Americans.

Barack Obama has to the most inept politician of the twentieth and twenty first centuries. Use the media to propagandize your ideas. After all, you are the President. For God’s sake use the power of that office!

It’s Terrible, It’s Horrible!

As I recall about thirty years ago then President Ronald Reagan signed an agreement with the Soviet Government in order to reduce arms and atomic weapons. As I recall, the Communists wanted to destroy capitalist nations and become the dominant power on Earth. As I recall, not a single Republican condemned Reagan for negotiating with a foreign nation that wanted to wipe out America. As I recall, back in 1972, Republican President Richard Nixon negotiated a treaty with Communist China, a country that had killed 25,000 Americans. Congressional Republicans went along with this agreement.

Alas, President Obama negotiated a treaty with a country that has never killed an American, and has never posed any danger to the existence of the USA. Every Republican candidate now condemns the treaty with Iran as horrible, disaster, and so on. And, not a single one has offered an alternative. In other words, when Democrats do what Republicans do, the only conclusion is that whatever they do is HORRIBLE!

Another Day, Another Death

It has now become the expected norm that one will explore the Internet or read a newspaper in the morning only to discover another dead black body died at the hands of police. Sarah Bland was on her way to work when pulled over by a cop. He claimed that she changed lanes without making the appropriate signal. I assume just about every American driver does that at least once a week. The cop became upset because she was smoking a cigarette in the car, ordered her to cease and desist, and within a few moments, he had pulled her out of the car due to her lousy attitude, placed cuffs on her, and hauled Ms. Davis off to jail.

Two days later she was found in her cell with a rope around her neck and dead. I assume police and Fox News will chalk this one up to “threatening the life of a cop.” My question is: “Why was she not immediately released on bail?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I assume Republicans now seek another dozen candidates.

NO political analyst could even imagine a candidate like Donald Trump.

Reality–Donald Trump is the ultimate creation of the Tea Party.

With a name like Jeb, it is hard believing he is a man of thought.

I continue expecting Sarah Palin to arrive on the scene– just imagine her on the stage!

There used to be a person named Herman Cain, I wonder if he is able to chip in with some wisdom.

Suggestion to Hillary–why not run with Trump?

The Russians Were Here First!

After learning that new evidence makes clear the original inhabitants of the Western Hemisphere came from Siberia,I headed for Moscow to discuss this news with the Great Leader,the one and only Vladimir Putin.

M: Well,Great Leader, what do you think about the new evidence which proves once and for all the original inhabitants of the Western Hemisphere came from Siberia?

P: Just further evidence that all parts of the world were originally settled by people from Mother Russia.

M: How will this news effect your country?

P: I am immediately moving in the Security Council for the United States of America to be declared to be part of Mother Russia.

M: Wait a second, you mean that you will become the Great Leader of Mother America?

P: Not only that, but I am entering my name as the Republican candidate for president.

M: How can you do that?

P: I am an older American and a true American unlike these illegal immigrants like Donald Trump or Rick Santorum, and certainly much more of an American than, oh, I forget his name, you know the guy with glasses who cannot recall who or what is in the Cabinet.

M: Well, we now have seventeen candidates in the primary. I will just head home to warn my gay friends that you might be our next President.

Another Dead Muslim Dude

About one-fifth of my life has been spent while some American President has a media conference in which he boasts of killing off some big shot Muslim terrorist leader and thus set in motion the end of terrorism in the Middle East. As I recall, first President Bush promised to track down and kill Osama bin Laden. Then came along the black dude who showed us pictures of the military getting rid of Osama bin Laden. OK, the big honcho was now dead. So, I was informed by my government that once we got rid of the head guy, then…… The “then”part was never made clear to me. I assume they were promising me that once Osama was gone, then…. Then, what?

There is absolutely no evidence in any guerrilla war that getting rid of one top guy leads to a collapse of the entire group. It is time to end this fiasco about killing off leaders and turn our focus on how to turn young people away from terrorist activities. How anyone considered pushing for major job creation programs in the Middle East?

Why Trump Aids Republicans?

The chairperson of the Republican party in Pennsylvania has come up with a new twist on the Trump mess that impacts all those seeking the nomination for president. He notes that Donald Trump has captured the media and brought attention to the Republican party. At least these days, one or the other Republican candidates is in the headlines. So, we thought it might be beneficial to offer some other ways Republicans can gain notoriety.

1. How about dressing Republican candidates in the Hells Angel uniform and take over a college town and harass the girls?

2. Why not lead a lynch mob against some Muslim or his family?

3. There is always the possibility we can obtain live footage of Donald fucking some beautiful gal.

4. Just remember when Donald Trump stands up for America his entire body is on display. I dare Hillary Clinton to engage in a sex contest with Donald!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

France, Connexion: “Tunnel Delays”

Not for El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Less Fertilizer Used”

Not in the US Congress!

Sweden, Local: “Fewer Beggars Around”

Actually, there are more than ever Wall Street beggars seeking government handouts!

Norway, Norway Post: “Action On Illegal Guns”

In America, the only “action” is to make them available to all.

UK, Guardian: “Investigate Naked Hair Salon”

As long as Donald Trump is around, hair is never naked.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Right To Be Forgotten”

Sorry, that is against the law when it comes to Putin.

Israel Listens To Haters

I do belong to Jewish temple and thus have been made aware by the local Rabbi that under no conditions am I allowed to utter negative words about the state of Israel. To do so indicates that I “hate Israel” and that I am an “anti-Semite.” Secretary of State John Kerry and EU foreign ministers, a collection of people who “hate Israel” and are, by definition, “anti-Semites,” urged Israel to cease its proposed program to demolish the village of Khirbet Susiya. It is a PALESTINIAN village on land that was originally allocated by the United Nations to Palestinians. But, there must be progress, which for the Israel government means removing Palestinians from land that belongs to them.

Kerry said: “We’re closely following developments and we strongly urge the Israel authorities to refrain from carrying out any demolition of the village.” This is a clear indication the Obama administration hates Israel and hates Jews! To love Bibi Netanyahu is a commandment of God Himself.

The First Amendment

It is quite clear that many Republicans are somewhat confused as to what the First Amendment to the Constitution means. County clerk Kim Davis spent hours in prayer and she fasted because her Christian religious beliefs did not allow her to issue marriage licenses to those seeking same-sex marriages. Ms. Davis believes the First Amendment was written to allow any citizen to simply claim their religious views prevented them from following laws of the land.

Our Founding Fathers wrote the First Amendment for the exact opposite idea. They were protesting against colonial times when England had an Established church that had to be funded by all citizens. The First Amendment was written so that no one could impose their religious ideas upon other citizens. Sorry, Ms.Davis, keep your religious views to yourself.
