What About North Korea?

The American press and the American political scene is focused on issues such as the Middle East or the potential of an atomic weapon in the hands of Iranian leaders. Bibi Netanyahu is worried sick that ten years from now Iran MIGHT have a nuclear weapon. Of course, Israel already HAS atomic weapons but the world should trust Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu who continually demands attacks on Iran.

On the other hand, Admiral Bill Gortney, head of the Northern Command, reminded Americans there might be nation RIGHT NOW which can attack the US. He is greatly concerned about North Korea. “We assess that they have the capability to reach the homeland(USA) with a nuclear weapon from a rocket. i’m pretty confident that we’re going to knock down the number that are going to be shot.”

So, Iran has NO atomic weapons, but North Korea HAS them and we are worried about–IRAN??


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

USA, Newsday: “Rob Yogurt Store At Gunpoint”

So, which flavor was stolen?

Russia,Moscow Times: “No Easy Solution”

Have you checked with Ben Carson, he always had the easy solution.

France, Connexion: “Leaning Tower Approved”

For Republicans,that means lean to the right.

UK,Guardian: “Free Advice From Notary”

Pay your taxes?

Sweden, Local: “Town Hall Set On Fire”

The Tea Party handles getting rid of government.

Slogan Diplomacy

The emergence of Republicans to power in Washington D.C. has been accompanied by the resort to a slogan in order to resolve any and all problems in the world. Just shout a one liner and–poof, away goes the problem.

“Bomb Iran.” At no time did Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Richard Nixon, or Ronald Reagan urge bombing our enemies. They relied upon diplomacy.

“Shoot them down.” Bib Netanyahu’s answer to the Palestinian issue is to resort to violence. The last time there was an Intifada, thousands of Palestinians died, along with over a thousand Jewish Israelis.

“Give Everyone A Gun.” People with guns kill people. Australia, after a mass shooting, ended the use of automatic weapons. Gun violence went down.

“Cut taxes.” During the 1950s the top tax rate was –91%! It was a boom time for jobs and wages.

“Arm Everyone.” How about kindergarten kids?

What Exactly Would Occur Under President Trump?

There is a line spoken by actor Robert Redford in a film entitled, The Candidate. He has just won an unexpected victory as US Senator from California. He turns to an assistant and inquires: “now what do we do?” So, let us assume that Donald Trump does become the next President.

1. Would any Congress vote to spend billions building a wall on the border of Mexico?

2. Exactly how, would Trump get Mexico to pay for this wall?

3. So,what is ACTUALLY the PLAN for Syria? Send in more boots on the ground? And,if they arrive, what exactly would they do that was different from fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan?

4. I assume President Trump wants to bomb someone or something? Exactly who or what would be bombed?

5. OK, so assume Donald pushes through his tax deductions. That means another $800 billion deficit each year. Sorry, Donald, your “fortune” will not cover that debt.

6. So Donald wants to round up 11,000,000 people. Where would he put them while they await going back to Mexico? Who would now be doing the jobs of these illegal immigrants? So, exactly, how many native born non-Hispanic immigrants actually want to pick peaches and apples?

7. Donald, remove 11,000,000 people and what they purchase every day would not be bought. Milk, cheese, meat, cars, etc..

My hunch is that on day one, Donald would turn to someone and say: “So, what do we do now?”

Oh Dem Happy Slaves!

If there is one topic that I know about it is the Texas Education Board which selects textbooks for students in the former rebel state. Many years ago they rejected my high school textbook because we had an entire chapter devoted to the story of the American Negro and we referred to the Civil War rather than the “War Between The States.” So,Texas is back in the news. They accepted a new American History book from McGraw Hill that had a section devoted to: “Patterns of Immigration” that discussed how immigrants came to America.

According to this version of history the “Atlantic slave trade brought millions of workers from Africa to southern states to work on agriculture plantations.” These darkies were so happy to get a FREE trip to America so they could get a job on a nice plantation where they were allowed to work without getting paid!

In the state of Texas Joe McCarthy,the man who knew nothing about human rights was a “great American” and our Founding Fathers were influenced by Moses when writing the Constitution.

If Ben Carson Became President

The other day I was wondering what exactly would occur if Ben Carson became President.

Ben at Cabinet meeting: “So,this Syria business. First, could someone show me on a map where this place is?

Ben to Joint Chiefs of Staff: I really don’t know why we have a chief for the Army, the Navy, the Air Force and the Marines. Couldn’t one of you do this job and reduce expenses?

Ben to Speaker of the House and leader of the US Senate. “Could one of you, using some visuals, please explain to me exactly how a bill becomes a law and where do I fit in?”

Ben to head of IRS. “Ok, once we end all taxes, can we also get rid of the IRS?”

Ben to nation: “From now on we shall return to the good old days and begin all schools with a good Christian prayer. It is OK if Muslim students leave the room and Jews should be happy since we pray to a Lord who once was a Jew.”

Canada, Toronto Star: “Mass Mystery”

How Americans who do not posses guns want everyone to have them.

Russia,Moscow Times: “Putin Seeks Center Stage”

Alone, I assume!

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Unauthorized Research”

No one will ever know what actually resides in the brain of Donald Trump.

France, Connexion: “Leaning Towers Approved”

In Texas, that means leaning to the right.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cash Appointed Minister”

At least the cash will wind up in an elected official’s hand.

Water On Mars!

NASA has now reported the presence of water on Mars.I now expect the following proposals from Republicans>

1. Donald Trump, we no longer need that wall, just send them to Mars, there is water to drink, go plant peaches.

2. Ben Carson: Where is this place named Mars?

3. Chris Christie: I can foul up the George Washington Bridge, just watch what I do on Mars!

4. Jeb Bush: Thanks to my brother providing funds for NASA we now have water on Mars.

5. Carly Fiorina: I can lick any Martian with a hand tied behind my back.

6. First,Obama opened up Cuba and now he wants us to have relations with Martians!

7. Rand Paul: I oppose any foreign entanglements.

Pope Francis, Enemy Of GOP

There is something ironic about Republican Catholics who rush to judgment about the Muslim religion, and are compelled, due to their ideology to rush to judgment about the Catholic religion. Suddenly, this nice conservative religion has become a part of the plot to destroy America and allow the shiftless and lazy to take away money from our wonderful job creators. Overtime Pope Francis urges support for the poor, Catholic Republicans recede in horror from this man who pretends to know something about poverty or the needs of those without.

He really got to Republicans yesterday in Washington when he came out for fighting the evil of climate change and praised the efforts of that notorious hater of job creators-Barack Obama. “It was encouraging that you are providing an initiative for reducing air pollution.” For some reason fighting for clean air has become an attack on the American way of life.

Oh, I forgot, Pope Francis is no scientist, actually, he is one. At least one idiot Texas congressman will be boycotting the Pope’s speech today.

Hit The Bigot!

tThere is one certainty in life, no day goes by without a story from the great state of Texas in which someone hits, shoots, or yells at another person due to some fear or anger about what that person said, did, or thought. Robert Watts was a game official at a football contest involving John Jay H.S vs Marble Falls H.S. Mr. Watts being a native Texans knew that blacks and Hispanics were not really Texans, let alone Americans. He employed the infamous “n” word toward black players and politely inquired of Hispanic players,”Speak English, this is America.”

The coach of John Jay was upset and told some players to blindside Mr. Watts and send him flying. Coach Breed is another native Texan with the weird idea that Hispanics are really Americans, as well as Texans. So, there will be an inquiry.

Me, I don’t know what the argument is about. Mr.Watts just expressed the same question as have-Donald Trump, Scott Walker, and Ben Carson. I expect that Mr. Watts will soon enter his name in the Republican primary.
