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



If ignorance was a virtue, Republican candidates would be angels in Heaven.

Come on, God, Ben Carson as PRESIDENT!!

After hearing Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio declaim on foreign policy, Donald comes across as intelligent.

I often wonder these days how I got stuck in America with all these weirdos.

Poor Hillary, if only emails had not been invented.

Say, whatever happened to that guy named Jeb?

Beware False Prophets

John Boehner issued his last hurrah about the state of American politics and it was not full of praise for his fellow Republicans. Boehner warned:”Beware of false prophets. There are people out there spreading voice about how much they can get done. We have groups here in town, members of the House and Senate,who whip people into a frenzy how they can accomplish things they know can never happen.” Mr. Boehner is NOT talking about Democrats, he is NOT talking about Barack Obama, he IS talking about the Tea Party and voices such as Ted Cruz and company.

There is something very sad about John Boehner, he really wanted to accomplish some goals for the Republican Party. He knew, as a politician that achieving goals in a democracy means-COMPROMISE. I did not agree with his goals, but he is right that democracy is based upon the principle of compromise.So, he departs with a sad farewell.

Donald Is Angry

Donald Trump is angry because his enemies in the Republican Party are out to get him and deny his right, yes,his right, to become President of the United States of America.Latest poll numbers show that he is leading the pack with that great American Ben Carson, right behind. Figures indicate:

Donald with 21%

Carson with 20%

Carly with 11%

Marco with 11%.

Ben Carson has to be the most ignorant person EVER to run for president of this nation. Yes, Donald, you have the right to be angry. He is the ONLY person who makes you come across as an intellectual who has knowledge of world affairs. Yes, Donald, Fox News coverage is “dishonest.” What has happened to America with such people being supported to run for the presidency??

Putin Pontificates On Everything

Lost in the incredible coverage of Pope Francis in New York,there was also another important world figure in town, but nobody paid much attention to the man whose mouth roars defiance to just about anyone who dares to challenge his views on world events.Macho man Vladimir Putin was in town,and he had words of advice for everyone. First, he wants the world to know that President Bashar al-Assad is the key figure in halting the spread of violence in Syria. Putin is shocked that western news sources claim Assad is guilty of something related to ‘war crimes.” I do know there have been reports of some sort of war crimes going on in Syria, but until Vladimir explained the true story, I somehow blamed Assad.

“Speaking as former member of the KGB, “I can tell you this kind of assessment is an active measure by enemies of Assad. It is anti-Syria, propaganda,”and anyone who follows my twitter or Facebook account knows that I already have exposed this terrorist attack on an innocent man who loves one and all. Well,if Vladimir says Assad is a good guy,who am I to contradict the wisest man on this planet??

Storm In A Teacup

The Tea Party decided to have a tea party but the enemy was not the British, but one of their own kind. They declared war on John Boehner who undoubtedly represented the worse form of liberal. He simply did not wish to wage war on Planned Parenthood since there were a few more important issues than an organization which provides information and services to women. Gee, they assist women to remain healthy even when hey are dealing with pregnancy.Boehner understood the House of Representatives could pass a bill that defunded Planned Parenthood, but President Obama would simply veto the bill and everyone would be back to square one.

No doubt, Congressman Boehner, a devout Catholic took to heart words of compassion from the Pope. Boehner is a tired man who has spent past few years defending hate and hate. He just got so tired that he needed a time out from politics and so he has resigned. The Tea Party will continue on its juvenile delinquent path and there will be speech after speech, but the end result will be– nothing changes.

Another Day, Another Dead Black Man

Some wish for gorgeous sunny days, some wish for finding money on the street, and some wish for a day without the shooting of an unarmed black man. Keith McLeod may not have been the wisest person on this planet, most probably, he was sort of angry and bitter and fixing for a fight with someone. Those of us raised on the streets of New York early learned an important lesson–never pick a fight with someone who has the ability to hurt or kill you. In those cases, head in the opposite direction.

Keith went to a pharmacy and attempted to get cough syrup using a false prescription. This was not the brightest ideas one can have, but, what the heck, what is the worse scenario for seeking medicine without a proper prescription? For Keith,the end result was a confrontation with police and he wound up getting killed for using a finger as a weapon of mass destruction.Oh Keith, the number two lesson I learned in the slums is–when you encounter a cop, be extra polite and do as he desires. At least you will not wind up dead.

Donald Vs Marco

Donald Trump is in need of someone he can blast in order to prove that he can insult anyone who dares to oppose the Great Man. For some reason, he has decided to make his target a Senator from the state of Florida, one Marco Rubio. Marco is the child of immigrants which naturally makes him suspect when it comes to issues confronting this nation. According to Donald,”Marco Rubio,who by the way has the worst attendance rain in the U.S. Senate.I’ve never seen a young guy sweat so much, he drinks water, water, water.”

Naturally, anyone who drinks a lot of water is definitely the right person to lead this nation. Now, if he drank whiskey or beer, that would be another thing and prove he has leadership qualities. Frankly, I do not understand why Marco is in this race, he has been in the Senate for six years and his record displays–what? Name a single law that he has supported. He does have the ability to make one erroneous comment after another about foreign policy. His comments on the Iranian nuclear accord are simply expressions of ignorance.

Watch Out For Men In Wheelchairs!

Scarcely a day goes by without some strange tale about police confronting people with guns–or at least cops thought they had one, and the story always concludes with the person charged with threatening police dead from bullets fired by police. In Wilmington, Delaware, Jeremy Dole was sitting in his wheelchair when somehow, in some bizarre manner, he wound up being confronted by police ordering him to lay down a weapon else. There were at least four cops confronting the man in his wheelchair. At this point, the story becomes murky, we do know that cops were shouting–at the same time– for Mr. Dole to lay down his weapon of mass destruction.

Shots were fired.

1. Mr.Dole died of bullet wounds.

2. A bystander said Mr.Dole looked confused.

3. Why did four police have to immediately utilize guns and blast away?

4. Did anyone consider leaving him in the wheelchair,surrounding him,and quietly asking him to drop the weapon?

Why, why, must the first response be firing away?

UN Inspections For All

As of June 1st there were six nations that refused to allow UN inspectors into its nuclear facilities. They are: China,India,Pakistan, North Korea, Iran and—-? Now that Iran has agreed to such inspections, how about the last one on this list to accept such action. Oh, the last one is the state of Israel. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continually expresses concern as to whether inspections will prevent Iran from securing atomic bombs. As of this moment, Israel is adamantly opposed to allowing UN folk into its facilities. Israel Atomic Energy Commissioner, Ze’eve Snir warned that the world must be on guard against nations such as Iran who will cheat on inspections.He also warned that Iraq, Syria and Libya had attempted to develop atomic bombs.

Well, we know that Israel has at least 70 atomic bombs and can blast into dust any and all Muslim nations in the Middle East. Now, that Iran has agreed to inspection, how about demanding that Israel join the club for peace and security?

How To Save Black Lives

There is a group called Black Lives Matter which is committed to the proposition that getting involved in the dirty business of politics is beneath the dignity of those who know what is true, and if you do not agree with them, they will not play with you. Alicia Garza of the group made clear that Black Lives Matter will not take a stand in the upcoming election since all people currently seeking the presidency do not meet their standards of honesty and commitment to black people.

There are always the “pure in heart” who do not believe anyone meets their standards of honesty or commitment. Great black leaders were politicians as well as being a Negro or whatever expression you desire to employ. Martin Luther King was a great politician who worked to gather together diverse leaders and unite them in the pursuit of equality in America.

Yes, BLM, the goals he sought have yet to be achieved. But, there is one thing that is certain-remain out of the political arena,and they never will be accomplished. It is a moral fight, and it is a political fight, and it is an economic fight.
