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

Has ANY person seeking the presidential nomination ever read a history of America??They are completely oblivious as to what happened in the past.

Is it true that Donald Trump is a secret Muslim? Just wanted to begin an interesting rumor.

I wonder how many young people who adore Bernie Sanders will vote in state elections in 2018?

The worse insult to direct at any politician seeking the presidency is to charge the  person has EXPERIENCE!

A man just got a penis transplant, I wonder who is the woman who will boast she was impregnated by the first transplanted penis?

This generation of Americans is a fantastic market for con men. They will buy anything, just shout!

I spend my nights worrying what Marco Rubio will do to make money.

 

HISTORY LESSON FOR BERNIE SANDERS

I do admire the passion and enthusiasm that Bernie has brought to his campaign. But, last night in California he uttered complete nonsense and made clear that he either never studied American history or was asleep when it was taught. Bernie told the crowd that every liberal change in America was NOT from the top down but  from the bottom up. He pointed out that working people formed unions and changed life in America. Well, examine the record:

1. The Constitution was written by wealthy people who invented the idea of allowing less wealthy people to vote.

2. Of the original five presidents, four were slave owners, and all fell into he classification of having money.

3. Yes, Abraham Lincoln was born poor, but the original founders of the Republican Party were wealthy folks. It was Lincoln and his fellow Republicans who passed the Homestead Act which gave anyone the right to own a farm–for free! It was Lincoln who pushed through laws that created the first–and at the time free-state colleges.In other words, these laws were from the TOP Down!

4. During the Depression of the 1930s laws –again TOP DOWN were pushed through led by Franklin Roosevelt -who was from the wealthy class– that provided for government jobs that gave four million work. It was from the TOP DOWN that laws enabled young people to attend college, laws that finally allowed Workers to form unions, and the Social Security Act –from the Top Down that aided the elderly.

5. Yes, Martin Luther King led demonstrations but it was the Civil Rights Act of 1965 that initiated the first important civil rights for black Americans.

John Kennedy was born into one of the wealthiest American families and worked for the average American.

 

BERNIE, READ A HISTORY BOOK!!

Great News!

Anyone who  has heard at least one speech from Bernie Sanders knows that if he is elected president of the United States, the wealthy had better watch out  for what he will do to their bank accounts.Well Bernie, the good times are already moving to reduce the money of our beloved wealthy –poor people that is– who have been discriminated against for the crime of making money.

Well, here is the good news. In 2014 the top 500 corporate leaders made 373 times more money than did the average worker in America. BUT, in 2015, these CEOs were reduced to near poverty when they wound up with ONLY 355 times more money! They now are forced into near poverty and must make it on an average salary of about $13.5 million.

Oh well, blame their plight on the dude from Africa, the black guy in the White House!

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.

“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 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??
