Never Too Late

During my service in the US Army I was fortunate to wind up working on the Integration plan for the US Seventh Army in Germany. After returning to college in the spring of 1954 I was lucky to be in the class of Dr. Kenneth Clark whose psychological studies help convince the US Supreme Court in its 1954 decision in Brown vs Board of Education to declare segregation of students in public schools violated the US Supreme Court. Dr. Clark told us in May, 1954 that if the president did not declare that September the official end of segregation we would still be arguing about segregation in the 21st century.

Well, his prediction did come true. In the year 2016, the Cleveland School District in Mississippi announced that this September it would finally, yes, finally integrate its school system. So, a Constitutional right for black Americans that dates back to 1954 was finally given them in 2016. Oh well, better late than never.

Veterans Cheated By Veterans

I continually am bombarded with mail quests for money in order to aid veterans who are suffering from poverty or physical disabilities. It is rare for me to go through an evening without being told on TV that money is needed to help our suffering veterans and there is always some organization ready and willing to help  them. The National Vietnam Veterans Foundation wants each and every American to send in their dollars and ensure that no veteran goes without.

Unfortunately, this “Veteran Foundation” has taken in over $29 million and handed back to veterans the enormous amount of about ONE MILLION! Its President J. Thomas Burch WORKS FOR THE VA! This man drives to work in a Rolls Royce, and guess who paid for it? Frankly, these days I triple check before sending money to “veterans organizations.” Oh, the Charity Navigator rates this Veteran organization with a ZERO.

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

Some want to fuck Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina would fuck anyone who gave her a job.

Question: Which of his three wives would become the First Lady?

This is the first election in memory where voters say,”I really don’t like the candidate I’m voting for, but the  other candidate I hate.”

I assume at one point, ISIS will chop off the head of ISIS when they run out of heads to chop off.

Bill Clinton has really lost his voice, he sounds old.

Hillary continues to make idiotic comments, how come?

Are Republicans positive they don’t want to take another look at Mitt Romney?

 

“I’m Not Stupid”

Well Donald Trump once again defied his critics by offering another poignant statement concerning his qualifications for the presidency. “I’m not stupid” is a clear and powerful point when one discusses who should become the president. He also made clear that “I’m  unifier.” Well, examine the record to support that comment:

Rand Paul: OK, I know he is an ignorant imbecile, but he is a Republican and I’m  a Republican.

Marco Rubio: OK, so I sweat somewhat and I drink water, but at this point I simply I don’t have a job and the bills have to be paid. Up Donald!

Ted Cruz: There is always tomorrow and since I am the only person qualified to become president, I’m for Donald today, and he’d better be for me tomorrow.

John Kasich: Oh well, just let me eat my ice cream cone, so if it’s the idiot, give him a shot.

Jeb Bush: Who? Oh, that Trump. Never heard of him.

Carly Fiorina: I’m available to be  under Donald. I gather he DOES have a rather large one.

So Who The Hell Cares?

On  a recent CNN interview the head of the Republican Party when asked about the New York Times story concerning the behavior of Donald Trump toward women simply responded: “No one really cares.” Most probably, he is right. One could produce evidence that Donald Trump was a secret member of ISIS and his followers would brush off the information with a  shrug. How about some other, “no one cares?”

1933, Nazi Germany: “Oh, there you go again complaining because Adolf made  few remarks about killing Jews.You don’t have the right to demand leaders only make politically correct comments.”

2016, Syria: “All I ever hear from the US press are stories about so-called, beheadings by ISIS. Show me one person who was allegedly beheaded who can testify that he had a head chopped off!”

1930, Soviet Union: “OK, so a few million people are somewhat hungry, OK, so a few million people are now in camps.It just  goes to prove that our beloved leader, Joseph Stalin wants to make certain they have some place to live during the winter.”

2016, USA: “There you go again with those anti-Trump stories concerning alleged mistreatment of women. The fact that Donald had physical contact with so many women simply proves that he is physically attractive to those of the opposite sex! And, remember, where there is  smoke, there is fire!”

 

So Cover Up On TV!

Each and every night on television one can see in black and white or in technicolor, people having their heads blown to pieces. We witness horrific beheadings of innocent people by mad men. We see scenes of floods that leave people clinging to pieces of wood. We see scenes of fire burning up homes and leaving children with burned bodies. Name the horror and its on your nightly television station.

However, none of these scenes could match what appeared the other night on KLTA in Los Angeles. Meteorologist Liberte Chan was wearing a black cocktail dress that revealed parts of her body. Someone rushed over to her and demanded that she put  on a sweater so the viewing public would not be shocked! Thank God in this era of Obama and political correctness someone has stood up for the rights of common decency!!

“I Got Rights”

It’s springtime in America and what else can we argue about, but the Affordable Care Act. Twenty-nine faith based non-profit organizations are suing to get their rights upheld by the Supreme Court. They want the right to have an exemption from the law’s requirement that mandates women have the right to  contraceptive pills. The Supreme Court which now has four liberals and four conservatives informed lower courts to work out some compromise. In that spirit, we offer some compromises:

1. As a doctor I demand the right not to operate on transgender people. I only want to operate on human people.

2. As a drug company I have the right to a fair profit and $5 for an aspirin sounds right to me.

3. Prior to receiving a contraceptive pill , a woman must provide proof that she was laid and impregnated.

4. All contraceptive pills must be handed over by the woman to the guy who lays her.

5. Donald Trump: Sorry gals, my penis demands the right to fulfill its mission without interference.

Life In Russia

We offer a brief synopsis of life in Russia as it is portrayed in headlines from the Moscow Times:

“State Has 6% of Russians Under Surveillance”

“Police Officers Raid Russian Newspapers Suspected of Extremism”

“Police Cordon Off Village of Chechen Man Who Complained To Putin”

“Russian Zoo Names Black-Haired Goat–Obama”

“Chechen Leader Kadyov Lost His Cat”

We decided to add our own:

“CIA Steals Eurovision Contest From Russia”

“Putin Wrestles Bear Into Submission”

An American Dream

These days Republicans claim there ideas for America represent the true essence of what past American leaders have urged. We offer the ideas of President Franklin Roosevelt in 1944 as to what he wanted for every American citizen:

1.The right to a useful and remunerative   job.

2. The right to earn enough to provide adequate food, shelter and recreation.

3.The right of every farmer to a decent  living.

4. The right of every  businessman to trade free from unfair competition.

5. The right of every American family to a decent home.

6. The right to adequate medical care.

7. The right to protection from the economic fears of old age and sickness and unemployment.

8. The right to a good education.

These were rights sought by the only American to be elected four times as president.

So, how many of these rights would be  the goals of “President” Trump?

Ignorance IS A Virtue!

The Kenya dude who somehow became president of the United States once again demonstrated his hatred of our noble land. He made this incredible statement while addressing students at Rutgers University: “In politics and life, ignorance is not a virtue. It is not cool to not know what you’re talking about.” Huh? Let me get this clear,is the President of the United States arguing that one should KNOW what he is talking about? Huh?

During the past nine months we have had over 17 intelligent and wise Republicans making clear that being ignorant IS a virtue and a necessity to become president. If I say, “there is NO climate change’, and I make that statement with dignity and certainty and add that God is on my side, how can what I say be incorrect? Since when did anyone seeking the presidency have to know what the hell he is talking about? We Americans want leaders who are boastful, who make promises that can never be kept, but leave us feeling happy and content. That is the essence of the American Dream.

Example: “figures indicate that MORE Hispanics are leaving America than entering. BUT, if I believe those alleged “facts”how the hell can I want to build a Great Wall and give jobs to millions??
