Interesting Headlines From World Press

In our daily reading of newspapers from throughout the world it is common to encounter some interesting headlines. We offer a sample of what we encountered yesterday:

“School Hunting For Unicorns”

Have they checked with Republican Party headquarters?

“Ivory Queen In Jail Over 700 Tusks”

Tisk, tisk, I guess an elephant stamped its feet on someone.

“Free AR-15 With Purchase of Car”

Now,the driver can blast away with car and gun!

“Patients Try Older Drugs First”

Sounds like another attack on Obamacare.

“Ban Foreign Bananas”

See, Donald told you, elect him and there will be jobs gathering bananas!

Oh For One More Supreme Court Judge!

Yes, the United States of America is a divided nation and no where else does this division play out but in the US Supreme Court. The state of Connecticut, for some reason, was able to pass  a law that restricted  the purchase of automatic assault rifles and large capacity magazines. Let me get this straight:

Connecticut is among the original colonies that revolted against England.

As everyone knows the American colonists were armed with AR-15 automatic rapid firing assault rifles.

That is why the 2nd Amendment clearly says anyone can have an assault rifle, even babies in the crib.

So, how the hell did this Socialist state get away from preventing its residents from protecting their wives and daughters against rape from Islamic terrorists?

Anyway, the Court refused to say yes, or no. So, the law stands for now. Of course, if the NRA is successful in getting Trump elected,there goes the end of that law!

John Oliver On Brexit

There are times when John Oliver sort of rants a bit too much,and there are times when his rants are right on target and quite humorous. He decided total on his native England which is in the midst of an election this week to determine if the UK will remain in the EU.

“Here is how I feel about the EU, it is a complicated, bureaucratic, ambitious,  overbearing, inspirational and constantly ambitious  institution, and Britain would be absolutely crazy to leave it., because, it it stays, it can reap the benefits   while still doing dick about everything.  And that is the British way.”

Who else can reduce a complex issue to a long sentence and get everything right11

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We  offer observations on the human condition from a 25 y ear old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Not a single person seeking high  office in America, actually served in the armed forces but all are gun-slinging good shots.

We live in an age of rhetoric, not action.

Once there were giants in the land, today,  mental pygmies.

ALL religions are used to justify killing.

Bill Maher is a liberal who believes only the Muslim religion contains terrorists has he ever heard of Catholic Adolf Hitler?

Well, LeBron James proved he IS the greatest!

Finally,  football will soon enter our lives.

Donald Trump Fastest Gun In Florida

Among the most common ideas propagated by Republicans is that if every person was armed, then all bad people would be dead. Donald Trump explained how to end terrorism such as the Orlando murders.  “People are dead.   A lot of people are dead. So, if everybody wants to be politically correct.  If people had guns and this son-of-a-bitch comes out shooting. POW. A bullet in his head. That would have been a beautiful sight.”

General S.L.A. Marshall, once conducted a study as to how many US soldiers actually fired their weapon in combat. He was studying WWII in Europe. His research indicated that thirty percent of soldiers did NOT fire their weapon due to fear of revealing their position. Perhaps, his figures are not accurate, but ask any soldier who has been in combat and they will admit some soldiers did not fire their weapon. They would also admit that firing a weapon when someone is firing at you leads to jerk of hand and fear.

Then again, Donald Trump DID have an opportunity during the Vietnam War to display his bravery in combat. Of course, being Donald Trump he made certain  that the got a deferment from serving in the US Army. Heck, there were guys shooting at you! Who the hell wants to take on a bunch of guys shooting at you? Much better dining and dancing at  great club.

Vote Your Conscience

There is now a movement among some Republicans to have delegates vote their conscience as to who should be the party’s candidate in the forthcoming election. We decided to ask a few Republicans about how they would vote:

Ted Cruz; It is quite clear, if I vote  from the perceptive of my conscience there is only one person who has the qualification for president: TED CRUZ

Jeb Bush: My conscience tells me to vote for Donald Duck any day over Donald Trump

Ben Carson: I need a moment of prayer. Whoever God tells me to vote for, that person I will vote for.

Carly Fiorina: Since Democrats are running a woman, we need a woman to run for President. Take on guess who is the ONLY qualified woman!

Rand Paul: Cut this out. You know who I won’t vote for if I voted on the basis of my conscience.

Rick Perry: You mean I can still vote for Rick Perry?

Hillary Clinton: Now, that is one soft ball question: The one and only Greatest Gy in the world who can build the Greatest Wall in the world!

Vladimir Putin: Donald Trump without a question. God, I could get that guy to build a Wall between Russia and the rest of Europe–and make the EU pay for it!

Marco Rubio: Sorry, I am without a job, and whoever offers me a job has my vote!

John Kasich: Let me go to the john and reflect on who can build the greatest john  in America!

Paul Ryan: I gave up any connection with my conscience once I became leader of Republicans in the House.

 

Orlando Voice of Reason

I understand the liberal media seeks to portray Republicans as lacking any sense of balance and using Islamic terrorism in Orlando to prove that we Republicans lack a sense of law and order. Well, Assistant District Attorney  Kenneth Lewis in Florida proved that when it comes to being call, cool, and collected, there is no one in the Democratic party who can match the call to responsibility that America seeks in this tragedy.

Lewis condemned those who got killed as simply representing “miscreants and ghetto thugs.” Of course last month he did wish a Happy Mother’s Day to  “the crack hoes out there.” In the view of Lewis, this killing of fifty odd people simply HELPED the city of Orlando by riding of those who represented the filth of society.

Now liberals, have to admit this is a unique take of this shooting. Say what you wish about faults of Republicans, one must admit they view the world through their own lens.

Donald T Meets Ronald R

Since anyone and every  one who seeks the Republican nomination these days insists that HE is the anointed her of Ronald Reagan. We stepped into our time machine and organized such a meeting between the two men.

DT: So, glad to meet the only guy who can claim to be the Greatest Man in the Republican Party. Of course, there really is only one Greatest Guy.

RR: Donald, I do recall meeting you once when I was walking down a line of visitors and shook your hand. What is this stuff about being a Great Man? Heck, you never once even got elected dog cather!

DT: Now, wait a second.I have built the Greatest hotels, I have build the Greatest golf courses, I have built the Greatest Casinos, certainly, that is worth two terms of governor.

RR: Have you ever actually got a law passed? God, I had to play poker and drink with Democrats like Tip O’Neill. I had to become their buddy in order to get laws passed. What the heck do you know about getting street lights replied?

DT: You know, Ron, I didn’t realize that you were part of the Establishment and did things with the Establishment. Let’s face it, Ron, when you left office the national debt had been doubled!

RR: I can not even imagine you negotiating with Russian leader Gorbachev. I turned an enemy into a friend and got things done. Heck, you have made enemies of just about every Republican!

DT: They are just a bunch hot losers.Heck, when I get  a chance to be with a winner like Putin, I’ll get him kissing my ass to avoid the destruction of his country!

RR: Where the heck did they find you? I think the Casino world is waiting for you. I knew the difference between talking tough and making peace.

Don’t Blame The Gators

I must confess that about forty years ago I did take my kids to Disneyland in California. These days there is a nice Disneyland in Orlando. For some strange reason this Disneyland had lots of alligators. Why people would go  to a place with alligators is simply beyond my way of thinking. Yes, they have alligators in the lagoons and they sort of swim around. Tragically, a gator jumped up and grabbed a two year old and drowned him.

So, don’t blame the gators. I checked with some Republicans about this tragedy.

Ted Cruz: If only dad carried a gun with him at all times, he could have shot the gator

Donald Trump: I told you,we need a Great Wall, a Great Wall, and then no more gator deaths.

Jeb Bush:  I guess things happen.

Carly Fiorina: That gator is lucky I wasn’t around, I would have shouted and yelled until he let go of the child.

Mike Huckabee: Jesus works in miraculous and strange ways.

Chris Christie: Is the alligator in need of someone to help out? I’m ready to help anyone who will allow me to be important.

It’s Just Another Day In Texas

There is Austin, Texas, and then there is the rest of Texas. Austin does contain several thousands of people who have some connection with human decency, and then there is the rest of this state which has descended to a modern version of the Old Wild West. Want to bring  a gun to daycare, just go to Texas? Want to bring a gun to church, where else but the God fearing gun-toting place known as Texas.

There is a private school in Waco, Texas, which for some reason actually has a black student among those attending. The kids were out on a camping trip when this little 12 year old black girl suddenly realized that her classmates had placed a rope around her neck and were jerking on it. Oh well, boys will be boys. They just wanted her to recall the good old days when blacks not only had a rope placed around the neck, but the rope was around a tree branch. Ah, for the good old days in Texas, where a black knew her place.
