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


After listening to Ben Carson speak about any subject, Scott Walker looks more attractive.

Some claim ISIS is an issue, others claim Planned Parenthood is the greatest terrorist group in the world.

After listening to Donald Trump, I now long for the brilliant ideas of Sarah Palin.

Say, whatever happened to Jeb Bush, is he still running for president?

There has never been a candidate for president who did not promise to end government ‘waste.”

More and more it is clear that Rand Paul is the only Republican with an intelligent word on foreign policy.

I wonder if Dick Cheney has considered throwing his hat into the ring of candidates.

Donald Has A Plan

There is good news in America, Donald Trump finally informed the American people as to exactly what one of his “plans” would actually cost this nation. Donald wants to end income tax for anyone earning under $50,000,he wants to cut taxes on our poor rich folk who now might, if they have an incompetent tax prepared pay the figure of 39.6%. As you recall, Mitt Romney never paid more than 16%. Anyway,the great Donald Trump plan would result in a deficit over a ten year period of TEN TRILLION DOLLARS!

Oh,I forgot, Donald is going to avoid this deficit by “reducing waste in government and ending loopholes.” I have been following American politics since 1940 and each and every person running for president has promised to “reduce government waste.” Donald,please give us the details how reducing government “waste” and which loopholes will prevent the TEN TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT. Just asking.

Vladimir On Center Stage

There is only one place that makes Vladimir Putin feel comfortable or welcome,and that is center stage on the world. He went to the United Nations and actually,not only talked with President Obama, but shook his hand. Putin is ready for action, whether it be attacking gays and lesbians in Russia or attacking ISIS in Syria. Of course, the great Russian army has yet to actually take the stage in fighting people since the 1990s when it bombed to hell ‘terrorists’ in Chechnya. Since then it has handled gays and lesbians with firmly, as well as women who sing songs that Vladimir does not like.

Anyway, there are now Russian planes in Syria,and Vladimir is ready to have his ‘advisors’ empower Syrian soldiers to bomb the hell out of Syrian towns, kill some thousands of civilians, and somehow, end the war in Syria. At this point in time,Obama is ready to welcome just about anyone to fight against ISIS. Has he considered:

1. Ted Cruz might lead fervent Christians into battle for the Lord.

2. Or, Scott Walker now has time to actually fight someone who can shoot back. After all,he handled unions with great talent.

Just imagine, Ted Cruz and Vladimir Putin leading Christians into battle for the Lord!

Let’s Get The Baby Killers!

Republican congressmen had their knives ready for the arrival of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood. Among other attacks on Ms. Richards, Republicans were upset that she earned $520,000! Day after day men and women from Wall Street appear in Congress and they ordinarily earn millions of dollars, heck, some earn $100,000,000 but not a squeak out of Republicans –they probably want to solicit some of those millions in campaign donations.

Cecile Richards was calm,she spoke with clarity, she responded to their questions with a sense of dignity. “Planned Parenthood has been in the news recently because of deceptively edited videos released by a group dedicated to making abortion illegal.”

She displayed dignity and responsibility. Sorry, those qualities are not ordinary ones found in this Congress.

On Secession

I continue to read statements from Republican candidates about their dislike of liberals, northerners, Democrats, Socialists, abortion supporters, those who support health care for people unable to afford it, and money wasted feeding lazy folk. It becomes increasingly clear that modern Republicans, unlike the era of Republican Abraham Lincoln, simply do not enjoy being a part of the United States of America. Just about every Southern state receives back more from the federal government than it pays in taxes to the federal government and all they complain about is that their tax money is going to Washington and what do they get back?

Obviously, they receive money that came from northern and western states. They are welfare lazy bums who take from we liberals, we supporters of abortion of gay right or Food Stamps. So, how about:

Just return to the idea of secession and leave the USA!

Ben Carson On Anything!

There is not a doubt in my mind that future historians of American history will be baffled at the fact Ben Carson received ANY votes for a nomination for president. In the history of American politics, Ben has few rivals. Perhaps, he might surpass Warren Harding who fucked in the White House or Millard Fillmore who hated Catholics and didn’t want them in America. Any time Ben opens his ignorant mind, incredible stupidity emerges.

He was asked about the flying of Confederate flags and this was his response:
“There are Swastikas in museums. If a majority of people in that area who want to fly it, I certainly wouldn’t take it down.”

Ben, the idea of a “majority in an area” being allowed to do what they desires was EXACTLY WHAT SOUTHERN OPPONENTS OF CIVIL RIGHTS ARGUED!!

This man is not stupid, he is ignorant. His presence in the Republican primary simply proves that modern Republicans belong on another planet.


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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Hazard To Your Health”

Companies producing drugs and high prices.

Canada, Toronto Star: “And God Wept”

He listened to a Republican debate.

USA, Denver Post: “Drug Dealers Invest in Real Estate”

To dig tunnels?

Sweden, Local: “Sweden Best For Cancer Survival”

Do I have to speak Swedish to get cancer treatment?

UK, Guardian: “Cash Appointed Minister”

Well, that’s a good beginning to deal with budgets.

Pope Francis Is Gone–For Now

Well, Pope Francis has left the United States and left in his wake some Republicans such as John Boehner wondering which moral and ethical principles a Catholic must adhere to in the political world. There is no doubt that John Boehner was impacted–as a Catholic- regarding his political beliefs–and behavior- which resulted in his departure as leader of House Republicans. Unfortunately, Catholics like Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush were left in confusion regarding moral issues for a Catholic.

For Pope Francis, the real story is what comes next in his life as a Catholic leader.For example:

1. Can he institute any changes for the role of women in the Catholic church?

2. Can he speak for the rights of homosexuals as Catholics?

3. Can he alter the power of conservative Cardinals?

4. Can he address the issue of birth control and abortion?

Most probably the answers to these questions begin by reducing the power of conservative Cardinals to hamper reform.

Rouhani On Republicans

Iran President Hassan Rouhani sits in Tehran with a smile on his face as Republican after Republican boasts of their desire to bomb the hell out of Iran and bring peace and prosperity to the Middle East. “Sometimes, when I have time, some of the Republican debate was broadcast live and I would watch it, some of it was laughable. It was very strange, the things that they spoke of. Some of them wouldn’t even know where Tehran was in relation to Iran. Some of them didn’t even know where Iran was geographically.”

Such observations on the political situation in the Middle East are unfair to Republicans. Heck, some of them do not even know the President of the United States was born in that country. The real ignorance among Republicans is:

1. None of them knows that the CIA working with the British MI6 destroyed democracy in August, 1953 by overthrowing Prime Minister Mossadegh and allowing the Shah to gain power. This played out in the 1970s when the Shah was overthrown and clerics seized power.

Never expect any Republican to know anything about Middle Eastern history.

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.
