This daily review will present headlines and a short paragraph concerning issues presented in newspapers throughout the world.

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 sure do hope that Ben Carson is still alive and selling his books.

Oh well, just a matter of time before another sex scandal dealing with Bill Clinton.

After departing the presidency, Jimmy Carter built homes for poor people, the Clintons built homes for themselves.

Gee, it would be wonderful if Trump actually laid out a single of his plans to make America Great Again.

Donald Trump is living proof of that old adage–  a sucker is born every minute in America.

In modern America it is easy to convince Americans to vote for them, just mention–emails and Foundations.

In most presidential elections, candidates argued how they would do something, today, they argue they would not be a bigot or use emails.

It is Monday, and time for another immigration plan from Trump.

Trump To Offer Immigration Plan

It is now August 29, and Donald Trump is once again going to offer an immigration plan. He has a few small problems. Donald has been spouting immigration plans for over a year to joyous acclaim from his followers. He has promised to wipe out the hordes of rapists, the millions of lazy illegal immigrants whose only goal in life is depriving God fearing native born whites from opportunities to work picking fruit and being nannies.

So, what can we expect? Most probably, something like this:

1. I am going to build a Wall. A Great Wall to keep out illegals.

2. There will be some doors in this Great Wall.

3. All I want is for ELEVEN MILLION illegal immigrants to walk through those doors and return to Mexico.

4. After they reach Mexico, the eleven million can apply to return to America as legal immigrants.

5. Naturally, we  don’t want any rapists and drug dealers in our nation.

6. So, if you are not a rapist, if you are not  drug dealer, if you are a nice person, we will be happy to inform you that we do not accept anymore immigrants.

I trust this clears up my immigration policy.

Governor Paul LePage Statement

Governor Paul Le Page of Maine is a devout Christian who believes the essence of his religion is to spread the word of hate to one and all. He directed a message of blacks, to Hispanics, and to all those whose skins are not white, such as his. “I don’t tell them to come to Maine and sell their poison. This I will tell ya, that ninety plus of the pictures in my head are black and Hispanic people from Waterbury, Connecticut, the Bronx and Brooklyn.”

Obviously, he is correct. The  only people in the United States of America who sell  or use drugs are blacks and Hispanics from the Bronx or Brooklyn. Thank God, not a single white Christian in this nation purchases illegal drugs and uses them to get high. I wonder if anyone who is a white Christian has ever encountered a fellow white person who uses drugs. Of course, not a single white in the state of Maine has even heard about drugs!

Colin Kaepernick Statement

For those who do not know, Colin Kaepernick is a quarterback who plays with the San Francisco football team. He has decided to make an important statement. Colin will not stand for the national anthem. I assume it is a statement against American racism, and to prove his point,,Colin will remain seated.

The assumption of Colin Kaekpernick is that everything in the present or  past of American history is related to racism and bigotry. However, Martin Luther King or fighters for human rights such  as Elizabeth Gurley Flynn or Emma Goldman or Rosa Parks somehow  do not belong in the American past or present. Mr. Kaepernick falls into the racist trap of assuming that only whites, and they naturally were all bigots, represent the story of America. By the way, Colin, of the 5,000 who were lynched in America, 1,000 were not black skinned.

I would be more impressed with Colin if he promised to give  up football until after the November election and devote all of his time to registering voters and getting them to the polls. Of course, this would mean no millions for Mr. Kaepernick.

Many Versions Of Donald Trump

We begin with a confession. Frankly, it is almost impossible to keep up with the continual changes in what Donald Trump thinks should be his policy toward undocumented Hispanic aliens.

Donald One: “We have these Hispanics swarming across our undefended border,the are rapists, they are murderers, they are gang members, they are ready to attack your wives, your daughters, your grandmothers. We have to build a WALL, a GREAT WALL, and when I become president,it will be built, andMexico will pay for it.”

Donald Two: “I love Hispanics, each day I get hundreds, no thousands of emails from them promising to vote for me. Now, you know that I love Hispanics,heck I hire thousands, hundreds of thousands to work for me, and I pay them at least $7.25 an hour. We have to get rid of the bad Mexicans, we have to help the nice Mexicans. I AM the greatest supporter of Hispanics in America.”

Donald Three: “I have said from the beginning, that I want to help illegal Mexican families. The Trumps love all Hispanics. I want the good Hispanics to voluntarily return to Mexico, and then come back legally. In fact, I will build plenty of doors in the Great Wall so the good Hispanics can come back. I want to be fair with the illegals. I want to help them get the hell out of here, and then get the hell back to here.”

I trust this is clear to one and all. So, if I finally understand Donald, he wants eleven million people to leave, and then he will welcome back the  eleven million.

Watching CNN Is Fun

These days I watch at least two hours each night of CNN in order to witness the verbal gymnastics of Trump supporters. I confess, after listening to their weird  defense of Donald, one loses track as to who they are or what they actually are saying. Last night two Trump supporters were defending building a Great Wall, and they are certain it will be the Greatest Wall since the Wall of China. A commentator pointed out that there are two National Parks which would have to witness a Wall being built right through them. He also noted the difficult geographic features of the area.

The response was hilarious. It was clear these two ignorant men had no knowledge there were National Parks in the region, when asked about geographic problems,they responded: “If we can get a man on the moon,we certainly can build a Great Wall to keep out Mexican drugs dealers and rapists. There is one certainty about watching Trump apologists on TV, they lack knowledge about what he just said that day. All too often, they are trapped in his comments of the day before which now have been supplanted by another Trump outburst.

The Body Part Of Texas Are Upon You

There is a famous song known to all inhabitants of Texas, it begins with the line, “The eyes of Texas are upon you.” But, these days students at the University of Texas have changed the meaning of the song. Most students  and faculty members are furious with a new Texas  law that allows any student to enter a classroom, the lunchroom, the office of a professor, the library, heck the student dorm armed to the teeth. As a former college professor, the thought that an angry student upset at his grade could enter my office armed with a gun borders on madness.

University of Texas students decided to fight back. They now carry a toy penis and shout: “Cock But Not Glocks.” They have been informed that carrying a toy penis is not permitted. As students now argue: “We have crazy laws here but this is  far too crazy, that anyone can’t bring a diko, but you can buy a gun.”

All I can say is: “Cock And Load”

Turkey Twirls

During the past four years, the nation of Turkey has played a key role in conflicts raging in the Middle East. It supported the overthrow of President Assad, and opposed the entry of Iranian or Russian troops into the conflict. Ironically, just as it opposed the strong man regime of Assad, its then Prime Minister Recep Erdogan was endeavoring to become the all powerful ruler of Turkey.

On one hand, Erdogan wanted Assad removed, on the other hand, he opposed some of the groups fighting to get rid of Assad. In fact, Erdogan did nothing to prevent thousands of ISIS followers from entering his country and making their way to Syria. Ironically, it was simply a matter of time before ISIS began to target his government. There have been several suicide bomb attacks in Turkey. So,now,Erdogan is sending troops and tanks to fight ISIS. But, he opposes other anti-Assad groups.

One needs a score card to figure out who or what President Erdogan opposes. However, it is clear that he overwhelmingly supports getting more and more power to become the dictator of Turkey!

The Speech Hillary Should Give

We offer a speech for Hillary Clinton to give about the Clinton Foundation.

“The Clinton Foundation is an institution that is dedicated to improving the lives of poor people.  It works to improve the health of children throughout the world. The goal of this Foundation is to ensure that each poor child in areas such as Africa obtain improved health, further opportunities to further their education, and a world in which they do not confront the prospect of war and rape and disaster.

Here are the facts:

Neither my husband nor I have received a single penny from this Foundation.

If the Foundation ended tomorrow, not a single penny would wind up in our  pockets.

Yes, I arranged meetings with prominent people, BUT not to gain any favors for myself. The goal of these meetings was obtaining  financial support for children. Would I meet these wealthy people again? YES, because the needs of poor and frightened children is THE only important issue that most concerns me.

Has Donald Trump with all his alleged “billions” ever spent a single dollar to aid hungry and frightened children in Africa? My thoughts are children, his ONLY thought is making MONEY for HIMSELF!”

Donald Meets Great People

Donald Trump sat down with Sean Hannity of Fox News to engage in a sophisticated dialogue concerning the American political situation. They eventually wandered onto the topic of Hispanics. As you recall, last year Donald Trump warned the American people to beware of hordes of Hispanic rapists and murderers swarming across our border and  heading straight for your home to rape your wife, your daughter, your mistress, and God knows who else.

Donald: I have a great meeting with great Hispanic leaders, and there certainly could be a softening, because we’re not looking to hurt people. We have such great people in this country. We have some great  people in this country.”

OK, We now know that we have  some Great people in this country.

OK, we now know that Donald has gobs and gobs of Hispanic friends who simply adore him.

I wonder if Donald Trump could actually express a single sentence without employing the word, GREAT!

Ooops, I forgot, we no longer have a Great Nation.
