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

Say Anything I Agree With

I understand there are some minor problems in the world connected with things like climate change or hunger or war, or refugees, but it wonderful to learn that here in America we now debate REAL issues such as who stands, kneels, or raises a fist in the air. Sheriff Jeff Bell in Florida is deeply concerned about a serious crime that is being  committed without the public being upset. Three members of the Miami Dolphin NFL football team went to their knees when our national anthem was played.

“I respect their right to free speech. However, in certain organizations and certain jobs you give up that right of freedom of speech while you serve that job.” HUH! In the United States armed forces, officers are forbidden to comment on political issues –publicly– since this is accordance with the importance of the military not to become involved in politics. However, all other troops have the right to say what they desire.

P.S. Somehow, playing in the NFL does not pose a threat to civilian versus military control of government!

People Are Talking

We offer some comments made by some of those who should know better than opening their mind and allow others to hear what they say.

“I’m not going to sit up here and do the tit-for-tat what Donald Trump said  last night.. That’s not my job. I’m not going to be the election year pundit.
Paul Ryan, who has some connection to leadership of the Republican party.

“We were friends long before this election. We will be friends long after this election.” Chelsea Clinton on her buddy, Ivanka Trump.

“When the Iranians circle our beautiful destroyers and with their little boats, and they make a gesture our people that they shouldn’t be allowed to make, they will be shot out of the water.”  None other than our next president, Donald Trump, the guy who ended life on this planet over a finger!

“I’m not in the name calling business.
Mike Pence refusing to denounce David Duked of the KKK.

“He had the taste not to go for the ten foot version.” President Obama on Trump using funds from his charitable Foundation to  purchase a six foot portrait, of guess who?

 

NOBDOY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 26 year old mind trapped in an 86 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Life in Trump America definitely will lead to immigrants -only those heading for Canada.

I know there are those who want to kneel for America, what about those who want to stand for America.

If Donald Trump was an idiot, he would win the Nobel Prize for idiots.

Sorry, the question never answered by Obama is whether he speaks a native language from Kenya.

Or, since he is from Kenya,does he have an English accent?

I have never heard Trump mention a book he actually read.

Then again, what is a book that he actually WROTE?

OK, idiots delight is the best description of those applauding Trump.

Netanyahu And Abbas In Moscow

For years the Jewish AIPAC organization has been thundering anger toward John Kerry for daring to arrange meetings between Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader President Abbas. These Jewish lobbyists are upset that Kerry attempts over and over again to seek  peace between Israel and Palestinians. So, I wonder what they will say now that Netanyahu and Abbas have agreed to meet in Moscow and allow President Vladimir Putin to be a peace maker. Naturally, Vladimir is besides himself with joy, John Kerry could not bring them together,so who is the only person who can–Vladimir Putin!

Yes, there will be a meeting. Netanyahu just loves Putin, after all, pseudo dictators just adore another one. NO,Israel is not a dictatorship, but freedoms are continually abridged for Israel citizens who are Muslim as well as Christians. And, many liberal Jewish Israelis are confronted with hate and discrimination for seeking a democratic Israel that respects the rights of Palestinians.

In the end, Putin will stand with a smile on his face, grasping the hands of Bibi and Abbas and proclaiming that he is a Peace Maker!

Bombs In New York City

There was another terrifying event in New York City, two bombs went off and over twenty people were wounded. Naturally, ISIS takes credit for the explosions. We have been told that Rudy Giuliani is now walking the streets of New York City in order to save it from Muslim terrorists. He believes the sight of him walking the streets will frighten any Muslim terrorist. Ted Cruz has promised to come to New York City and filibuster on 42nd Street until every terrorist surrenders. If they do not  surrender, they will have to endure a nonstop talk from the cowboy from Texas.

Sorry for not going wild with fear. Each  year in America over 30,000 people die from guns, most from suicide. No one gets upset at DEATHS but today millions are worried sick about two bombs that never killed anyone. Reality, from now on some Islamic terrorist or some home grown white Christian terrorist is going to kill someone, somewhere in this nation. We have to remain calm,and deal with the new reality. After all, we calmly deal with the 30,000 gun victims, and we quietly handle the 25,000 automobile deaths, so, loosen up, calm down, welcome to the modern world of death.

Reince Preibus is Chairperson of the Republican National Committee, and now finds himself required to ensure the election of the non-Republican, Donald Trump. Naturally, he is a bit upset, why the hell is he stuck with the task of helping this idiot from New York become our next president, and make a mess of everything. Since Jeb Bush and John Kasich, and even Ted Cruz have made clear they will not support the Trump candidacy, Reince is very  upset and has warned these guys who refuse to back the Republican candidate that they will be punished.

1. They will not be invited to Trump speeches and get to sit on the platform.

2. They will have their identity card that allows them into Republican headquarters taken away from them.

3. Donald will NOT say nice things about them.

4. If Donald gets angry, beware of what he will say about you.

5. Donald might encourage the NRA to hit on you guys, and when he says, “hit,”take your guess as to the meaning of that word!

6. When an illegal Hispanic rapes your wife, don’t expect consolation from Donald, he warned you!

Oops, Bombed The Wrong Guys

It is not surprising that American planes bombed the wrong guys the other day in Syria. Of course the real issue is exactly who are the “right guys” to bomb. A US air force spokesman admitted that a bombing carried out in Deir al-Zour to wipe out members of ISIS sort of wiped out about forty or so Syrian soldiers. I guess they where in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just imagine being in Syria in a plane going hundreds of miles an hour, gazing down and seeing people, who the hell knows if they belong to ISIS or al Qaeda or the Free Syrian
Army. They got  weapons is all one knows.

The Russian government blamed failure on the part of the United States to coordinate its bombing mission with Russia for the debacle. The Syrian government, however, offered the real reason for this bombing, the United States is an ally of ISIS!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Has anyone asked Ivanka Trump if dad tried to make out with her?

Only in Syria does a “truce” result in deaths.

Americans seek a rendezvous with disaster.

So, will we ever learn what is in Trump’s mysterious tax returns?

I wonder if finally Social Security folks will get a raise this year?

Not a single presidential candidate utters a word about the future of Social Security. Wonder why?

These days young Americans live in today, rather than think about tomorrow.

Nightmare: A Trump appointed Supreme Court.

 

The Media Just Likes Bullies

If Donald Trump goes on to become president, the American media can take a bow for the manner in which they have fawned over the bully from New York. Mike Pence was on CNN where Erin Burnett “interviewed” him. Pence uttered the ongoing nonsense about how Trump would make America great again and give each and every American a Great Job. He repeated the Republican  mantra about how Donald would generate 25,000,000 new jobs. And, restore a vibrant economy.

Latest figures indicate the past year witnessed the most important economic gains for the middle class and poor people. There was a five percent growth in income for these groups. The CNN reporter at NO time cited these figures, she just allowed Pence to ramble on and on about the faltering economy. NOT once did she raise the issue  of nineteen million jobs created under the Obama administration. If Hillary Clinton is interviewed there are nonstop questions about emails and her health. Trump and his buddies get away with murder from media reporters.

Jimmy Fallon Interviews Hitler

Jimmy Fallon had Donald Trump on his show last night, and he fell over himself in posing fluff type questions such as how healthy he feels or did he ever think he would run for president. The audience shouted their approval as Trump once again spouted nonsense and cliches about, “Make America Great Again.” We wonder how Jimmy would handle an interview with Adolf Hitler.

J: So, Adolf,so wonderful to have you with us tonight, let’s everyone give Adolf a warm welcome. So, tell me, how are things going with Eva Braun and you these days?
A: Jimmy, wonderful, wonderful, just the other day we visited one of our new recreation  camps for Jews, Jimmy, you  should have heard them cheering Eva and me.  Fantastic.

J: I now that some people claim that you do not like Jews, please share with the audience your feelings toward Jews.

A: Jimmy, some of my best friends are Jews, I even sold  my paintings to Jews. All I want for my Jewish friends is plenty  of fresh warm air, and a good shower at the  end  of the day.

J: So, these stories about concentration camps, are they true?

A: Jimmy, if there was an epidemic,wouldn’t you want to concentrate those  effected by the germs so they would not spread their illness to others? I assure you, Jimmy, people get good exercise at the concentration camp, not a single one leaves feeling ill again.

J: Well, thanks, Adolf, wonderful to finally  get at the truth. So folks, give Adolf and the entire Nazi party a great, great hand!!
