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

I heard there is a barber who wants to enter the Republican race, he is the only one who knows how to cut hair.

Ben Carson is the Clarence Thomas of politics.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the guns were aimed at the NRA?

We Americans do not lead the world in health, but we sure do in death.

Once upon a time America built great highways, bridges and dams, but that was then.

So Obama changed the name of a mountain, now we have proof he was born in Kenya!

So how come Bibi Netanyahu is not running for President, heck, he is involved in our political system.

Death Does Not Take A Holiday

There is definitely two certainties in the United States of America, a black skinned youth will get shot and a cop will get shot. The killing police continues with the death of a Chicago area policeman who was pursing a car and wound up murdered by three unknown men. Recent figures reveal rises in murders in cities such as Milwaukee, Baltimore, St. Louis, Chicago and even New York. The trend is for a rise of about 8% in these cities. The question is why?

1. Guns, guns, guns. America is filled with guns and anyone and everyone can get one.

2. Social media enables young boys to readily know who is insulting them and what else could an offender person do but blast away.

3. Visit any inner city neighborhood and one sees unemployed youth hanging around and the end result is they eventually will turn on one another and blast away

4. We are a nation that refuses to offer meaningful work to those at the bottom of the economic structure and for many of those in that place, shooting a weapon gives them a sense of meaning.

Uber Alles Not Certain

Uber is the ultimate result of modern society. Here is an organization which does not own anything, does not hire workers, and earns millions of dollars. Such an organization could only emerge because of social media. I offer Uber my car, I pay for gas, I pay for maintenance and Uber makes money by not doing anything other than enabling me to find customers. However, there are those who “work for Uber” who have decided they are being exploited. They are instituting legal action in which they hire lawyers in order to make Uber pay for something.

Judge Edward Chen is allowing drivers who “work for Uber” to proceed with their legal action. They want Uber to treat them as employees and pay for gas, pay for car maintenance, and pay for health benefits. How did such an organization arise which uses the labor, the cars, the intelligence of workers without paying a damn penny!

Closer To Iran Treaty

Throughout America Jewish groups such as AIPAC are spreading fear and hate in order to halt a major step toward peace in the Middle East. Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Senator Chris Coons of Delaware are the latest to tell AIPAC to mind its own business and allow the world to gain peace in the Middle East. Those opposing the Iran agreement ignore this is NOT an American agreement.It is an agreement that is supported by six major nations. If the fear mongers have their way, the United States would have difficulties in the past reaching any agreement with another nation. We would become ignored on the stage of international diplomacy.

What if America follows the Bibi Netanyahu fear?

1. The US would have to attack Iran because it would resume its quest for the atomic bomb.

2. Russia and China would end sanctions and sell anti-missile defense material to Iran.

3. Hezbollah in Lebanon would fire at least 50,000 missiles toward Israel. Even if 95% were destroyed,at least three thousand would hit targets in Israel causing the death of thousands. THIS is the end result of AIPAC suggestions.

The Great Wall

I realize that many scoff at the intelligence of Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Liberals so enjoy mocking this man just because he never got a college degree. Well, Scott has learned in the real world of politics that vision is what this country needs. He is proposing a 5,000 mile wall to separate the United States from Canada. Now, what does this have to do with our security and safety?

1. We must demand that the Canadian government allows US inspectors to check their armed force in order to prevent surprise attacks.

2. We must insist that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appear before the Canadian Parliament to provide sound and serious ideas regarding peace in the world–you know, having Canada bomb Russia. Russia has atomic weapons, Putin does not like Canada. So, send in the Israel bombers.

3. We Americans must insist the Royal Mounted Police promise never again to get back on their horses.

4.Of course, for true safety perhaps we ought to sow the entire Canadian border with atomic radiation.

SAVE AMERICA FROM CANADIAN TERRORISTS Elect Scott Walker if you want safety from northern terrorists!

The Great Ditch

It has come to my attention that Donald Trump and the Republican party seek to protect our borders agains the hordes of people fleeing from Syria or Iraq or Mexico. Therefore I am ready to propose a solution to this problem.

1. We do not need a wall. We need a giant ditch that will run from the Pacific Ocean coast to New Orleans.

2. The ditch will be filled with oil and water to prevent these immigrants from drinking OUR WATER!

3.Inside the ditch there will be crocodiles and piranha fish to ensure any seeking asylum in America will have to surrender a foot or arm.

4. NRA sharpshooters will be placed along the entire ditch with orders to shoot and kill.

5. Gang members will be allowed to get rid of their anger by blasting away at anyone in the ditch.

I await confirmation from Donald about his support.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Woman Drives Drunk With Kids”

Now, this is a good way to wind up driving drunk without kids.

Sweden, Local: “Schools Teach LBGT Lessons”

Hands on?

Egypt,al-ahram: “Saudi Women Register To Run”

Away from the religious police?

USA, aol. “Celebrity Divorces”

Does that include divorcing America from Trump?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Fan Falls To Death”

At least he did catch the ball!

Black Lives Matter, They Sure Do

There is a group which goes by the name of ‘Black Lives Matter” which is still another example in modern America of the anti-political situation in our society. According to one of its spokespersons, ” The Democratic Party,like the Republican party and all political parties have historically attempted to contain black efforts to liberate themselves. True change requires real struggle, that struggle will be in the streets and led by the people, not by a political party.”

Let me get this straight:

1. It will be led by “the people.” Who or what is “the people?” Of course, it is those who are leading this group. As I recall, they were never elected or designated as leaders by any or all of The People.

2. So,there is a demonstration and ‘the people’ protest. Then, what happens?

3. Black Lives Matter is simply a group of people interested in pretending they represent someone.

All SUCCESSFUL changes in American society come from a political process. Just study the life of leaders such as Martin Luther King or A.Philip Randolph or Thurgood Marshall, etc..And, let me include Lyndon Johnson and Abraham Lincoln.

The Carson Factor

The media is upset about Donald Trump as a potential candidate for president. But, the even more bizarre candidate is Doctor Ben Carson. Yes, Carson is a doctor, yes, Carson is of black skin, yes, Carson lacks any understanding of what is necessary within the United States, let alone the world. I doubt if he could even identify the location of Syria. I doubt if he could conduct a conversation, logical, illogical, about any issue in foreign affairs. But,this nincompoop is now the second choice in Iowa among Republican voters. What does this say about the condition of politics in the United States? How did we arrive at a point in history when someone lacking ANY knowledge of conditions in our society or the world is now the second choice among Iowa Republicans?

1. Carson appeals to those who hate Obama and what better way to display the hatred than to support a black candidate?

2. Carson, like Trump, is the anti-politician, so why not elect someone who is completely non-political and ignorant?

We Americans are lost in anger and ignorance!

Russians Blast America

Russia is a land governed by Vladimir Putin,a sort of Donald Trump, Dick Cheney and Ted Cruz put together. Vladimir has convinced the Russian people they are surrounded by evil nations seeking to take over the only prosperous nation in the world–RUSSIA! Slowly,but continually, the Russian government is driving off the TV screen any pictures or words that might contradict his version of reality. A recent poll, conducted by the Russian government,reveals that many Russians believe:

1. America is an immoral nation.

2. Americans are not warm to one another.

3. Americans only repeat as truth what they see or hear on TV.

4. Americans hate and envy Russia.

Ironically,just about everything they say about the US would aptly apply to Russia.

The Russian economy is tumbling each day. The Russian ruble has lost most of its value.There is inflation and loss of jobs. So, Russians, how about heading for immoral USA?

Oh, in Russia it is against the law to publicly support gay rights. I wonder if American gays would enjoy the free land of Russia?
