hobo jungle drums warning USA
be careful of bad ju ju! the hobo czar may have to find a job, since Obama will eliminate the office of hobo relations. we're on our own! that's nothing new?!
“The chairman of the board” Frank Sinatra signature song for me is New York New York! It is a great song that captures the allure and challenge of seeking success in the city that draws in the top talent from all over our world. Investors know Wall Street remains the global center for companies all over the world. There are languages from all over the world when you wait in a hotel lobby in Manhattan. It is exciting to recognize the prestige and importance of being branded a top player in New York. Real estate in Manhattan is not a game for faint of heart with stratospheric levels of money at stake.
“I’ll make a brand new start of it, in old New York!” Frank Sinatra knew the challenges of keeping his career near the top when he was decades into his performing. His selection of songs and his arrangements survived music fads and dozens of international music stars. Devoted music fans of Sinatra trusted his integrity of music and flocked to his limited performances near the end of his reign.
USA grows weary of our anemic economy and families are losing hope of ever getting ahead. Donald Trump is a brash real estate business man. His father cautioned his entering the big arena of Manhattan real estate development. He won and he lost but he never let his losses knock him down and out. I measure the strength and reliability of any business partner on their having survived set backs and prevailed to grow stronger. “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere!” Donald Trump may have been counted out, but he refuses to stay on the canvas flat on his back.
On May 3, 2016 Trump has earned the right to challenge the Democrat candidate for president election of 2016. Republican field of candidates have been reduce from 17 to 1.
Now the real battle for election of president has changed! Donald Trump will set the stage for his campaign to invigorate our economy and give hope plus jobs to families in poverty now. This battle will be huge!
(Lyrics of New York New York by Adolph Green and Betty Comden)
Our Millennium, our century, and our first decade started with miserable economic problems. We had a “tech bubble” stock crash in 2000. Then we had another economic drop with the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001 and the stock market dropped again. Then when we thought the worst is over, the Depression of 2008 knocked everybody down on their ass. Good news for us survivors is on the way. Get ready to reap in riches.
I share my experience as a baby boomer who graduated from college and was looking for work in our worst recession in 1972. Of course, my high school and my college left me ignorant of economic cycles or basic business principles. We cannot entrust capitalism to protection of politicians and professors.
My working career began with employment by TIME. My annual gross income was around $22,000. I wanted to invest some of the money to make me more money. I took a payroll deduction for buying company stock out of my biweekly pay. The stock market was miserable in the recession, so my shares kept losing value and that made me rich. I was not worried about losing money because I knew saving a small amount at the bank would make nothing. After 3 years of losing money and getting additional shares at always lower prices, the market turned. Suddenly, I was rich and bought a condominium.
Seeing the potential from investing in times of trouble opened my eyes. The Millennial potential for wealth is great. Too many predictions of doom, make me encouraged to invest more. Mutual funds have minimum deposit limits. Stocks can be purchased for any dollar amount. I would suggest diving into the shark tank. Open a Fidelity account to deposit some cash systematically. Research some companies that are important or you personally like. Consider even a boring company like a utility. I worked with an old gentleman who only bought electric utility stocks while working. He was a millionaire that did not make a millionaire salary at work.
Be happy to enjoy making history, like I did. I had to stop the presses every week for the Nixon Watergate stories. You will be seeing the wildest election ever for Donald Trump! Get rich! Reagan made me rich in the stock market. Trump will help us make money!
President Obama confirmed to our dearest friends and allies in England that he yanked out the bust of Winston Churchill that has been in White House for decades. That is alright. Nobody in England dreams of wanting a bust of our fearless leader in their residence of Prime Minister.
When the new president assumes office in 2017, nobody will shed a tear for departure of B.O. from our White House. I will celebrate in Las Vegas! Our luck is bound to change for the better.
Our Millennial generation has suffered great hardships with the miserable economic policies of our government. Our elderly saw their savings earn no interest with the magical book keeping of our Treasury to keep interest rates invisible. Our poor have not been helped at all. The lobbyists and free loaders have enjoyed easy living. Now is the time for the tide to turn.
Our country and our future is in the hands of our Millennials. The good news is that they cannot screw up our country more than our current resident. We can only go up from here! The motto of my favorite state of Wisconsin remains; FORWARD!
The oppressed children of slaves are now demanding that the slave masters pay a price. The heritage genealogy of these Black Lives Matter victims remains suspect if any of their families had ever been enslaved. Universities are shamed into hiring professors that know all the black rap artists popular with oppressed minorities. It is not clear that rap classes will help anyone be successful in their future.
After a long tiring day of protesting and disrupting library studies of fellow students, there is hardly any time to actually study. BLM demands university schedules create time for more planned spontaneous protests. Protesters need a Safe Space paid by the university to hide from police that is a sanctuary from civil law and university regulations. Students will not be permitted to have a safe space free from endless protests for social justice by BLM. Any student witnessed fleeing the endless string of BLM protests will be accused of a hate crime and subject to dismissal guilty of white supremacy.
Anybody who thinks they can curse, push, shove and punch anybody to prove they are helpless victims really needs a reality check. Nobody has the right to demand I do anything because of slavery from 140 years ago. Germany had a minority of brown shirt militant head bangers that intimidated the country and got der Fuhrer. The USA does not owe anyone anything from 140 years ago. The solution may be to set up territories just like the Indian reservation system. All BLM seeking compensation from USA for slavery can stake land in abandoned Detroit and Chicago neighborhoods. It will be a safe space and they can be assured that no white supremacy people will bother them.
Politicians posturing as a revolutionary is nonsense. Revolutionary Sanders has enjoyed living off his federal salary as an elected representative and then senator for 25 years! So the revolution is starting now? What has Sanders ever done while in office?
He has never worked other than as a politician. If you spend your whole life as a politician, how can you now promise to revolt against what you did your whole life? His best years have been wasted sitting on his rump and pretending to help advance our country by doing nothing. What major law, bill, or special committee achievement is in his miserable wasted life in government?
A self declared “socialist” threatens to choke and break up big banks to fund his free stuff promised to get him elected to do nothing as president. Where is the socialist party in the USA? Nobody knows them after his 25 years praising their utopia principles. Hillary Clinton lacked the courage to challenge or question why a socialist can pretend to run as a Democrat. Now after getting bitch slapped by the Jewish socialist, Hillary will question why Democrats are hugging a socialist close to the graveyard. It is clear, Hillary did not consider that she is so hated and despised that an old Jewish socialist is more popular than the queen of graft.
Our country has ignored and left the millennial generation as cast offs in order to invite illegal aliens and run around the globe apologizing for our past accomplishments. I cannot blame the millennials for getting desperate and questioning their future chances. However, it is sad to see that small trinkets of free stuff is more important than the opportunity to grow our economy. It is also a sign of desperation. It is similar to hanging onto the promises of a drunk at closing time in a saloon. The drunk will not remember anything the next day, and the promises are gone after election. Bernie Sanders is drunk with the amazing popularity he enjoys as a failed politician who has done nothing ever.
I snapped my selfie in the hijacked jet plane toilet from Egypt. Now I can take selfies just like our fearless leader. I am not sure why this has become a global craze. People have died in the process of self promotion by walking off a cliff, etc.
I am trying to figure out how to take a selfie of me using chalk on the sidewalk in front of White House marking out “Trump 2016“. I may ask a policeman to take my picture to help me get famous. I will check if I need a EPA permission slip or if this qualifies as “hate speech” threat.
I do not want to let the marvels of our new millennium pass me by with fewer years left to be above ground. I plan on doing a YouTube Karaoke with me singing in my car with bums and hobo folk I pick up hitchhiking. I was inspired by the fat British guy James Corden on CBS late night. I am fatter than he is, so I have to be a bigger hit.
Nobody is perfect. So we need to forgive everyone that chose to do evil? Sorry, but nobody is perfect so I do not feel guilty by denying mercy to an evil doer.
Hormones inflame the libido of Muslim refugees. Young refugee men attack European white women or young girls for primitive sex. We need to try to understand their sexual urges? We need to hide our women and girls? We need to try to understand their lust takes priority over laws to protect everyone?
Please forgive us flawed Christians to stop being victims to ISIS, ISIL, DAESH or poor Muslim refugees wanting our money.
We are only human. It is past time to pretend we can be perfect and watch animal behavior without stopping the animals. There are stirrings of spontaneous mob action of Europeans to stop the animals. We need to feel guilty because the animals are crying for us to show them mercy now?
The animals eventually stampede in retreat when their animal lusts are no longer tolerated by their prey. It is time to tame the wild animals by clubs, knives, and guns.
On March 21, 2016 Donald Trump had a very busy day. He met in Washington D.C. with some Republican big wheels in the morning. I watched him at his press conference from his newest project from the old post office in Washington. Hotel is under construction and 2 years ahead of schedule and under budget, thank you. He called on many reporters on all topics. He called on a young woman he did not know.
She was asking about his priority on hiring veterans. Trump asked if she was a veteran, and yes, she is a veteran. He called her up to the podium. He told her to meet with his head of personnel on stage with him. She got his card and has an appointment. All this happened instantly in front of news media trying to pin down Trump on some touchy topics.
I had to reflect on this. He called on a woman he did not recognize as a press regular. He was listening to her and made the deduction that she might be looking for a job. He calls her up when she said she was a veteran. Does anyone need to know the heart of a man who will treat a total stranger with respect and dignity? He did not treat her like someone begging. He respected her and treated her with respect. He did not look to avoid her and set up a story to delay her. Trump acts like a leader!
Liberals will promise jobs programs, and government programs to “handle veterans issues”. This is government socialism lingo that you are on a waiting list for years. Trump did not dodge or evade her personal life problem. The news media was ready to pounce, and walked away with a heart warming human interest real life story.
Candidates for president deserve our sympathy. How much more stuff can they promise us voters? How can some of them promise illegal aliens stuff? The debt will not grow because we will take money from rich people to give us stuff.
Bernie Sanders promised a Revolution when he takes office. BS does not think starting his revolution will be violent or anarchy. I cannot think of a single peaceful revolution! He has no plan or details to lead his new army starting this revolution.
Hillary Clinton has been getting email and phone callers from around the world begging her to become president instead of Donald Trump. She has not identified who these foreigners might be. Iran, Haiti, and Cuba are sure to be her supporters.
Bernie is not a Democrat. So if he is not to be the Democrat candidate, then he can run as socialist/communist party candidate. Hillary will not lose her arch nemesis; BS.
Meanwhile, the Republican party is very upset that the leading candidate is not a lifetime politician, nor taking orders from Republican big wheels. Donald Trump will ruin the pecking order for free loaders, and lobbyists if he gets elected. George Soros did pay for goons to disrupt the Chicago speaking event of Trump. Of course, news media did blame Trump for being a target of an attack. Donald did not even apologize for being too popular!
Tavern tokens are important. First, it reminds me where I was last night. Second, it means I have another drink waiting for me. Third, it is a nice way to share your good fortune in having enough money to buy somebody a drink.
This particular bar token I found in my pole barn in a can. The tavern is still in business, so I can get a drink. It probably was in that can for about 10 years. Nobody can store a beer for 10 years and enjoy it. However, my token will get me a beautiful brew ready to enjoy tonight. The price of a beer has gone up in 10 years, so it was a good investment! Plus it proves I was not nuts enough to drink past my limit, which is good.
Drink responsibly and do not drive if you have too many tokens in your pocket.
You do not need to be packed into a cruise ship like sardines in a can. Leave your money in the coffee can, and get onto a raft for a lot less money! These lads on the Danube river built their own luxury cruise ship. They even carry their own land cruiser bicycle to free load around port towns.
Duck under the tent when it is raining to enjoy the view of life on the river. You can swim along the raft, and not be left behind like falling off a cruise ship. You can fish for your dinner! Meet mermaids, bar maids on shore, and see the world around you.
Do NOT carry paper money. River life can make your dollars wilt when wet. I do highly endorse the best ballast! Dollar coins will not melt when wet, and you feel richer with heavy pockets of dollars.
Be sure to put on navigation light markers for your hobo cruise raft. Nothing ruins a trip faster than getting rammed by a tug boat pulling tons of cargo on a barge.
That old man river will take you to a new view of life from the hobo raft.
The citizens of our USA have a reputation as being over confident, dumb, and for some odd reason successful. There are countries that have civilizations over a thousand years old that look at us and laugh. These same countries are living like they did a thousand years ago.
We are fortunate to have in our country many who will try to stop us; to protect ourselves from success. “You can’t do that!” Demanding freedom from an English monarch started a American Revolution and there were a lot of “You can’t do that!” folks who let a few fight and die for our freedom.
The campaign for president has brought out more pessimists to save us from our ourselves. Donald Trump has made his fortune in the USA in real estate. He has not always been successful, but he never stopped looking for new opportunities. Fortunately, we have a lot of experts on stuff that know this man can never succeed. The few folks that are interested in supporting Trump as our presidents of these United States of America need to adopt our “You can’t do that!” attitude.
We need to stay seated and do not rock the boat. The life time and 3rd generation politicians know how to add more taxes and regulations best. Freedom is an experiment that can hurt people. There are political dictators that would be upset if we continue with this freedom nonsense in the USA.
It is astounding that the Grand Old Party has shoved into the spot light their ruling class elite folks to warn us against following Donald Trump. We need a firm hand to hold us in place and just listen to the adults in power. We are told it will take centuries to make progress.
The “You can’t do that!” experts are not elected or selected by we the people. Who are these people that help us by tearing down people? They have always been with us. My sons are the millennial generation, and they are not willing to give up. They have fought and some died for our freedom in wars we won in battle, but lost in diplomacy. I ignore the diplomacy experts advice. They have never won anything from our sacrifices of military.
So we are not free to choose anymore. We are not wise enough to understand failures in diplomacy and just accept learning to stay in our place. The experts on why “You can’t do that” are free to talk, but not free to deny our freedom to choose. I see our spirit of 1776 alive in my sons generation.
This year the greatest show on earth is free! The variety of candidates for president offer a lot of entertainment. The Democrats do not offer much to attract our attention. Whether Bernie wants lime Jello with dinner, or Hillary complains about the yogurt options is about as much excitement we find in the Democrat Retirement Home. The Republicans offer a greater variety of predicaments in their soap opera.
Does Slick Willy kick out his mistress? Who cares? Will Bernie ever see his lifelong dream of Revolution? We can put on his tombstone; “He tried to get it for free!” Will Hillary learn how to use her email finally? Will the dead from Benghazi have their killers tracked down? We just have to wait until hell freezes over.
The grim reaper is the only exciting visitor these 2 will get in their future. Who would ever want to see them in a retirement home? The visitor ledger will be empty, except for undertaker sales people. Before they are gone, please contribute to our Hobo Farewell Party! They both will go on a freighter to Cuba for final attempt at happiness. They will be bitching the whole way about everything. We will video record every precious moment of their petty complaints and demands for more money from the stinking rich. They will feast on baked beans, Spam, and beef jerky. They will be serenaded by our crooner in chief, President Barrack Hussein Obama. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will reminisce when they were in power, and dance the Hokey Pokey. This will not be fun, but they don’t deserve anything better. They can visit Guantanamo Bay and talk to the inmates about how life is terrible in the USA.
As the sun slowly sets on Bernie and Hillary, I will be drinking a lot of cocktails. I do plan on dancing on their graves in tribute.
The official position of our fearless leader is USA will not respond to every military attack. Our threats to Syria on banned biological warfare weapons just hung in the air without any military response from the USA. We cannot use our military in a “whack a mole strategy”!
The small acts of aggression in military attacks by ISIS and Syria were not handled by our military following our commander in chief. Our president gave tacit go ahead to Russia leader Putin to buddy up with Assad to kill his protesting faction of citizens under smoke screen of attacking ISIS. Russia did significant bombing that hurt ISIS and helped Assad. Putin rules of engagement did not bother to wait for innocent civilians to get out of the way. ISIS always chose to be in civilian areas anyway.
If the USA squashed ISIS in 2014, then there would be no refugee crisis in Europe from Syria. The president wanted to be more sophisticated than crude warfare killing terrorists. After all, remember the Crusades was a problem over a thousand years ago by killing some Muslim civilians in the warfare. Assad heard USA talk but not act in stopping his violations in use of chemical weapons.
Europe is floundering under mass invasion of Muslims claiming they are fleeing for safety. However, the European countries with Muslim refugees are under attack by rapes, robberies, welfare bankruptcy, and best of all are complaints by refugees against European culture plus traditions.
If USA only played a little whack a mole using our military back in 2014, then 2016 would be safer around the world. The people of the world are often talking about Obama in their curses and complaints.
Life will take every one of us on a wild ride many times. Time can be described as a river with changing currents and changing weather that we all must travel.
None of us have the option of standing on the river bank to just watch life pass us by. We are all thrown into the sink or swim challenge with the problems we cannot anticipate that come at times when we feel weak.
Our country and the world has brought us all to a new kind of river ride for those lucky enough to remain alive today. The candidates for president that decided to rely on the strategy and the imaginary supporters from the last century, discovered that the world and the people are different now. Speeches from the past do not grab our people now. We have an old socialist promising revolution. We have a billionaire who is not ashamed of his achievements or his wealth that he built up in real estate. We are offered 2 different visions of our future. We can make America great again! We can spend more tax money by taxing the evil greedy rich people.
This debate and our attention is distracted by wars, illegal alien crime wave, terrorist invaders, and world domination plans from China plus Russia. Our lives and our security will depend upon the next election for president. We need to rely and place trust upon our favored candidate. Nobody is perfect and nobody can predict what comes next around the next bend in the river. The problems that threaten our security are not Democrat or Republican but American.
I want a president who has faced challenge and adversity and prevailed. South Carolina has Donald Trump on top of the heap. The heap now has fewer old century candidates. I want Donald Trump for our nation to win again. He has ripped up the scripts from the last century. He has survived our major real estate Depression and his expansion of business is impressive. Do not look at him to be following an old formula that got us into this mess today.
Bernie Sanders has started a movement in our USA! My parents left their home in Europe because they knew communists of Russia killed anyone who opposed complete domination and control of citizens. They came as legal immigrants to the USA to be free.
We have to consider becoming an emigrant to avoid the Bernie Sanders Revolution. Citizens are seeing the risk to their life from violent groups of Islamic terrorists. We see cities burned by black protesters claiming that whites are slave masters. We see Sanders rallies with capitalism convicted and waiting for the death sentence upon his election. Profitable corporations with international business will join the exodus to Ireland from the USA.
We need to look to clowns for guidance. If the clowns are packing up to leave, then you know the end is at hand for USA. We can look forward to the IRS adding staff to confiscate and impound wealth on a massive scale for Sanders. If you have built up a business, then you get the top prize. Audits, confiscation, and convicted guilty of greed are your rewards by the Sanders inquisitions.
Do not get too comfortable in your home. When my parents left Europe, they left all of their possessions and property behind. They hitch hiked carrying what they needed to find freedom.
There is a huge controversy that Hollywood is racist. As can be anticipated, the egocentric hub of self adoration cannot abide any criticism. When your world is based upon self adoration, then any flaw suggested is impossible.
I am a curmudgeon. Those I associate with are members of the “Grumble & Bitch Club”. I do not classify my likes and dislikes based upon anthropology or philosophies. I am not sure that I really like myself.
Please do not ever play the Barbara Streisand hit song; PEOPLE. Why do I have to like people? I do not expect people to automatically like me. Why am I compelled to like anybody that shows up at my house? I grew up in Chicago. “What do you want?” “Get out of here!” The nuns sent us kids out to invade neighborhoods peddling gambling cards known as “punch cards”. Grey haired old ladies and men slammed doors in my face with tears streaming down my chubby cheeks. No compassion and no money was offered for my begging and pleading. I learned that people do not need people peddling anything.
My mother and father always told me to “never open the door!” If I was home alone when they were out, then I was to guard the house from invaders and peddlers. We were not racist if we did not like anybody. I am not a misanthrope. I do not feel obliged to like a stranger. I do not hate strangers. I do not hug strangers.
Hollywood is a world built on appearances. It can be dangerous to live in a world of mirrors. Anyway, it is funny to see the self-righteous outrage about any possible flaw. Narcissus stares at the mirror and cannot see any imperfection. Nobody believes they are not perfect in Hollywood. I know I am not perfect and I do not care.
If you believe we are all brother and sisters, then you can believe. I am not obliged to live my life in fairy tales and make believe. Curmudgeons are not lovable and do not want to be hugged.
2016 has the worst start for investors. Millennials have the worst luck in the world! Their economy is in the junk yard. Jobs available demand enthusiasm at low pay and no future visible. Forget all that bad news! Look at these characters enjoying life at a saloon; Toots Shor.
The only profession making a huge gain are the bar tenders! Yes, as the battle weary drag their weary bodies from Wall Street or from their computer after looking at their retirement balance today, everybody will want a couple of good drinks!
Jackie Gleason was an interesting character that made a lot of money, spent a lot of money, and ended up rich by choosing to blaze a television studio in Florida a long time ago. He definitely indulged in enjoying; food, drink, and glamorous company. He had style, good taste, and connected with folks working hard for a living who envied his life style. He hung out at Toots Shor joint with a lot of celebrities, movie stars, and sports heroes.
What worse can happen? A lot of bad news will keep coming and to add insult to injury the East Coast will get buried in a snow storm soon! Millennials need to have a good drink and ignore our mediocre USA economy.
In June of 2012 an executive order was issued by President Obama to stop deporting children that came into the USA illegally. His intention was to let DREAMERS find their dream in our country. Instead, nightmares and worse destroyed the lives of many children.
What could go wrong with sending children across South America without adults to sneak across the Mexican border? I often see parents in Wisconsin giving their child a back pack for heading out to Mexico alone. Most of the kids make it, I think?
Shocking as it may seem, a lot of the children sneaking into the USA disappear in the USA when they are set free to dream. Bad people who want to exploit helpless children eagerly enslave children for prostitution to obsessed depraved sex deviants. Wisconsin is a major pipeline for moving sex slaves across our country. Dreams do not come true when children cannot be protected by their parents. Congressman Gutierrez does not expect children living in the streets on the South Side of Chicago to last very long but Dreamers are safe?
Transforming the USA by wide open borders to let in anyone and everyone keeps the criminals happy. Many states had spontaneous protests of citizens trying to stop the forced resettlement of illegal aliens. President Obama has zero Dreamers living with his family but the rest of the USA needs to look out for these children. It is always great to rely on the citizens of the USA when the president does nothing.
Commercial news media does not bother to update the citizens of the USA on the huge influx of children again coming over the border from Mexico right now. We were told months ago by Homeland Security that there would be fewer children sneaking into the USA. My dream is that our government stops lying to the citizens of USA on illegal alien invasion.
Donald Trump wants to go on the road as Wayne Cochran and CC Riders band. However, his dream will be delayed after he is elected as President of the USA. Our executive branch has been so poorly managed, he will be starting a new government CSpan show; You’re Fired!
Hillary Clinton will start a women’s center for Slick Willy & Bill Cosby abused ladies. She will need to delay opening the center until she is out of prison for the murder of our ambassador of Libya. She will be on the red carpet for Dallas, Texas January 15 premiere of 13 Hours the secret soldiers of Benghazi.
Democrats will be needing new underwear anticipating Trump 2017 orders for IRS to actually work on investigating tax abuses regardless of political party! Mexico will be happy to attend the new border wall unveiling ceremony they paid to build by US citizens. Sanctuary cities will discover that they are not exempt for following federal policies on illegal aliens.
Wretched excess and conspicuous consumption will stimulate our economy and parents will celebrate millions of their college graduate children leaving home finally!
Happy New Year!
Technology gives people more ways to do really dumb things. The amazing thing is that technology brings entertainment your old aunt or grandma loves. When Al Gore invented the internet, did he foresee the explosion of Face Book? Can we ever get enough cute puppy or kitten video to watch on line?
Back in the dark ages of 1950’s, your aunt or grandma would bore relatives describing her cute kitten’s antics. Now, millions of people are glued to their LED monitor watching somebody’s cute kitten’s antics. What has changed? Obviously, we have all become brilliant and interested in watching kittens over the internet.
For the millions watching kitten postings, they are also bombarded with linked internet advertisers selling sex stimulants for grand pa, and diet pills to lose ugly fat. At least in the 1950’s your aunt or grandma did not sell your mailing address to hear more kitten adventures.
My main complaint on new technology is how every video game is based on blowing up, shooting, stabbing, and running over people. In the ancient days of the 1950’s, the action games were tag and king of the hill. We are happy to report that technology has reached more dumb people. We are sad to report, they are still dumb.
There are a lot of stupid people in the USA government. Birds of a feather flock together. Today our president stood in front of the USA with his hand picked staff. In case we did not know he picked these people, he made it clear; “This is my Attorney General!” And he went on to identify each cabinet member position, but he neglected to remember their names.
As one of the few tax paying citizens in the USA, I thought those introduced are actually our attorney general, etc.? However, I will not question our president if they are his not ours.
The purpose of his interrupting our day was to tell us nothing. He did reassure us on his bravery in traveling to France. His attending the Climate Change Conference will keep him talking about controlling our weather by talking more. He beamed in pride knowing that by his defiant act of traveling to Paris will drive ISIS nuts! I think he is nuts!
So everybody can rest easy! His staff reassured him that as far as they know, we are safe! THANKS?
Ben Rhodes is a political rat crawling around the halls of our White House. With the smoke still in the air around Benghazi from the massacre of 9/11/2012, the rat Ben had sent an email to be sure Susan Rice blamed a video for the death of our ambassador. He has been rewarded by some meaningless executive title under our commander in chief. Romney was defeated in the 2012 election by lying to the citizens of USA.
Ben just told Meet the Press that our president is doubling his effort to fight the terrorists that have unleashed massacres in Beirut and Paris. That must mean we will not only send 50 special forces to Syria, but another 50 someday? We admire the restraint of our president not to leap to false conclusions that terrorists screaming “Allah Akbar” could be some other religious group like Baptists or Roman Catholics. We need to waste time on worrying about USA legal gun owners as more of a threat than foreign terrorists.
One suggestion is to stop dreaming up new names to confuse us sheep in the USA. The terrorists were ISIS, then ISIL, and now DAESH. Changing names does not change the smell of swine. Whatever the latest name our president wants to use, does not bring back the dead in Paris and Beirut. Our best response will be to send John Kerry to Paris with James Taylor to sing again.
Why did Europe send Crusaders to drive out Muslims by sword, axe, and arrows? Liberals love to blame Catholic religion and greedy royalty for slaughter of Muslims in the Crusades. Our liberal leadership ignores the fact that the Crusades were in response to Muslims invading and killing in Europe. The invasion went on for decades before the citizens were demanding to drive out Muslims.
Anybody care to remember the Muslim atrocities against USA that I know during my lifetime? We lost marines blown up in camp under president Reagan. We lost sailors blown up under president Clinton and Blackhawk down. September 11, 2001 demonstrated the intent of Muslim terrorists in USA. President Obama had thousands of our troops killed with his coffee house rules of engagement to be fair and considerate to Muslim terrorists.
When Europe responds to Muslim attacks, then they will be driving Muslims out of their continent. It will be cruel, and it may offend liberals sense of justice. If you are under attack, then you are not content to sit and take it. How insane are our liberals to demand importing Muslims from Syria?
Sharia law zones in Europe will soon be taking root in USA. This concedes exemptions from state law to the Muslim laws. When our brave citizens stopped a train terrorist in Europe recently, France was grateful. This incident was just a small warning sign of growing terrorist invaders.
There is no good humane response to Muslim terrorists. The innocent Muslims will suffer because Europe cannot trust them to stop terrorist Muslims. Maybe the USA will take this problem more seriously when New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Seattle get terrorist attacks from Muslims. We do appreciate our president responding to our threats by sending 50 soldiers to Syria.
The flood of illegal aliens demanding protection by our laws ignored our laws to sneak in here. During the Republican debate in Milwaukee on Tuesday, I especially enjoyed Cruz on the topic of kindness and compassion to the flood of illegal aliens our president Obama coddles with false promises of freedom.
The media elites and college professors can be generous with the jobs of blue collar workers being given to illegal aliens. How about television reporters and university jobs for the illegal alien video journalists and professors? Cruz laughed at his own observation that suddenly illegal aliens would become a national crisis that demands our government stop this invasion. The motivation to demand action of course, is the loss of money suddenly from the pockets of the liberal elites. Illegal immigrants taking money from liberal elites would be the catastrophe that demands immediate action!
When the shoe is on the other foot, then it does not feel so good. So the middle class loss of jobs to illegal immigrants was ignored as not a real problem to journalists and professors. However, if professors and journalist start losing jobs to illegal aliens, then it is a national emergency! I appreciate Ted Cruz wit and sarcasm as the truth of our times. He speaks clearly and without any questions on what he says.
Our current president has a government salary of $400,000 per year paid by those of us who do pay taxes. While in our White House, his net worth of personal wealth is valued at $12.2 million !
Obama wealth is in contrast to former president Bill Clinton who left office nearly destitute according to his wife Hillary Clinton. She was suffering in silence with this financial burden. I will be planning a spaghetti dinner to raise money for the Clintons to help them out.
When Barrack Obama was a candidate to become Senator from Illinois, his net worth was estimated to be 20 bucks. This little mullato boy from Kenya has become rich by a career in politics. Only in Illinois can a Democrat become wealthy while blaming rich people for all of our problems in the USA. The mayor hopes Obama can afford his property taxes and income taxes when he retires in Chicago soon.
Friends of Obama convinced him to share his experiences and vision for our future in 2 books that made him wealthy. Hillary got a lot of money for writing a book as well. I will let everybody know how they can buy my book I am working on at this time; SO WHAT?
I feel worried that Hillary cannot afford to live in the White House again as president. Her love of country may cost her too dearly in family finances. Bernie Sanders who is a tight wad might be better suited to continue to live as a poor family in the White House.
Eric Auchard of CBS News shared an update; Newly uncovered Nazi-era documents shed light on the alleged role IBM played in helping Hitler to carry out the Holocaust in Poland, according to the author of a controversial book on the subject.
Investigative reporter Edwin Black, the author of a book published last year entitled “IBM and the Holocaust”, puts forward further evidence to support his claims of IBM’s knowledge and complicity in Nazi operations in wartime Poland in the paperback version to be published this week.
Historians working as part of Black’s research team said that in the paperback they had pieced together the previously fragmented story of IBM’s role in supplying the organizational machinery used to to transport millions of people to Polish death camps.
Black and his researchers said recently discovered Nazi government documents in the U.S. National Archives and Polish eyewitness testimony link IBM’s U.S. operations directly to the operations of the Third Reich in occupied Poland.
The relevance to us today is how IBM pursuit of business opens the cyber security door for China. Lenovo of China bought the IBM sagging laptop business, and in exchange for this deal connections were set for software projects using IBM resources. I am not a technology expert so I have no idea how software architecture can be copied or hacked. IBM is a major investment by Berkshire Hathaway.
Human nature, greed, and pursuit of more money over the best interests of USA is still alive and well. Just look how Warren Buffett celebrated death of Keystone Pipeline project that locked in more future rail shipments of oil for the old Burlington Northern Railroad bought by Berkshire Hathaway. Oil freight is huge volume and very profitable for railroads compared to pipeline shipping savings. Of course, Buffett is seen as an ideal citizen and great business man by the corporate cronyism favored with our president.
The cyber security issues are real threats to our country and our economy by theft and subverting stolen technical secrets of our national defense. What action is being taken by our president? We do not need retaliation. We need initiative to deny our enemies access to our own technology experts.
Killing millions of Jews during WWII may not be very important to us today. However, never underestimate the power of greed to influence poor decisions by major US companies that endanger all of us.
Most cities are spending a lot of time and money arguing over toilets. There are a group of LGBT people that are mad toilets have signs who can use the toilet. Remove the sign!
Millions of dollars are being wasted on designing new signs for toilets. Millions of dollars are being wasted on instructing public educators on instructing students on how to use the toilet. If you do not know how to go the bathroom when you are in grade school, then you have to be really dumb.
Voters in Houston just confirmed that if you have a boys bathroom, then only boys can use that toilet. Girls know that boys do piss on the toilet seat when they are in a hurry. Girls do not want boys in their bathroom. How is forcing boys into a girl bathroom a civil right?
A tradition from the start of our country is the easiest and cheapest solution. City people are supposed to be smarter than country people, but why do city people need so much help to use a toilet?
Recycling out of date phone booths for the city folks can be a cheap solution. Nobody uses pay phones anymore with everyone buying or stealing cell phones in the city.
President Obama proudly shoved all TSA employees into the federal utopia of union membership. Nobody gets fired, and we always need more employees to get the job done.
The 2nd testing of smuggling bomb materials onto airplanes by a government audit team did confirm that we can be sure bombs do get through screening. We applaud the groping, probing, and confiscating routinely done by TSA. However, it appears these activities do not affect sneaky bomb makers beating security for getting onto airplanes.
There is no question that adding more union federal workers fills our president with ecstasy and joy. We will get more promises that this 2nd failure across the TSA system can be corrected with more union employees and more bonus money. Nobody will be fired and we can expect more money used from new debt ceiling for morale boosting trips to motivate TSA dullards.
“Several of our field leaders and officers have also recommended a Model Transportation Security Officer Project to determine model performance criteria. The project is intended to incentivize performance and emphasize the values and standards frontline employees are expected to uphold across the enterprise. I am a strong proponent of incentivizing performance, as this can be a powerful instrument to drive employee behaviors. Through these efforts, we intend to convey our values, measure them, and evaluate performance against these new expectations, uniting the TSA workforce behind critical agency reforms that will deliver organizational alignment and strengthen our security posture.” TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger has the delusion that this government program is an “enterprise”. An enterprise in essence is taking the prize or goal. It appears this TSA enterprise consistently fails the life or death threats of smuggling bombs onto airplanes. Sounds like our future relies upon offering better incentives for the union workforce to have better morale while still failing in protecting us.
Thanks goodness our military are not at war anymore under President Obama. A promise and pledge was made publicly by our fearless leader after our glorious exit from combat in the mountains and desert land of the Muslims. We do not need to lose more soldiers in combat and we do not need to set combat boots on their foreign land. However, advisors from USA are now going back into combat areas just to observe and support endless warfare. Maybe some will get killed, but the pledge of no boots on the ground is in tatters anyway.
Our president has no plan on winning any war. He just does not want to be blamed for losing every war he was leading as commander in chief. The history books will not consider his delusions about international law keeping the world at peace. Going back to the blood shed by USA during the Viet Nam war, it started with “advisors” who were the front line warriors battling the China military. Presidents Kennedy and Johnson escalated the use of force to defeat the Chinese communist conquest of Viet Nam.
Our Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter knows the rules of propaganda in our current White House. Any advisor killed in combat in Iraq now, was never in combat. Military shot and killed in Iraq were just observers and advisors with guns. Carter was upset that the secret plan of sending a lone US destroyer to confront the Chinese navy was in the news last week. However, our White House revealing adding 50 advisors with air force Wart Hogs for support was just fine. What will 50 troops do in turning the tide against ISIS? It is the stuff of legend and lore how Sparta sent 300 to their certain death to confront the Persian invading army invading Greece. Who expects 50 soldiers to defeat the Muslim army of ISIS?
We know that our president is playing politics with the lives and deaths of our military. Either win or leave. Our military leadership that are true warriors grow weary of the word games that let more die for propaganda. Let the president lead his favorite LGBT troops in public parades with rainbow flags to make himself happy.
Susan Rice will be explaining why China is challenging all maritime activity. The television series Kung Fu insults the Chinese by using a white actor pretending to be a shaolin monk doing dumb martial arts nonsense with cowboys. Of course to make it totally nuts, his mentor is a blind monk who performs super human feats. Susan is apologizing to the Chinese for our stupid exploitation of martial arts for money.
Susan knows that China like the USA government, does not like religion to be more popular than the government. Anyway, Rice is infamous for her blaming the massacre in Benghazi of our ambassador because Used Cars insulted Muslims making fun of the Ayatollah at a used car lot.
Our president is making a bold statement to defy the military operations of the Chinese navy that is getting bigger than our navy.
He is sending from Japan a single military ship USS Lassen.
Our president is so feeble, nobody pays attention anymore to his red line military threats. China will not change their military expansion to control territory they want.
Медаль «Защитнику свободной России» Putin has scheduled to award Hillary Clinton the prestigious title of Defender of a free Russia in recognition of her contributions by defending his motherland.
Hillary had to endure 11 hours of testimony in the House of Congress to answer questions about Benghazi massacre on 9/11/2012. She survived the grueling and painful questions from members of Congress looking to find information on her policies that led to the attack on Benghazi. The Democrats apologized and praised her courage to face the Republicans wasting her time and $4.8 millions dollars in expense spent on the hearing.
I never heard a Democrat in Congress complain about spending any money before?! I thought there was something wrong with my television when I heard this. If Republicans dare to suggest stop funding the federal study on fat lesbians, then the Democrats would howl like a fat lesbian dragged from her 3rd plate at a buffet. We welcome the Democrats to the stewardship concept to stop wasting our tax dollars on nonsense. So far the only waste is happening on the Benghazi committee hearings?
I do not think Hillary surviving 11 hours is as significant as surviving 13 Hours! I am absolutely certain that none of the Democrats on the Benghazi committee will bother to attend the movie on January 16, 2016; 13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Hillary would not enjoy being in the shoes of her ignored ambassador Stevens on September 11, 2012.
The Democrats seem more concerned about protecting Sanctuary cities from enforcing federal laws against illegal aliens. The Democrats no longer fight for the rights of citizens but demand we must adopt revolutionary principles to destroy our country. Comrade Clinton is adapting to the privileges of office enjoyed by rulers in Russia.
She might be ignorant of history that introduced the Stalin Labor Camps for enemies of the state to suffer and die in Siberia working. How about Hillary enjoying North Dakota in the winter for massacre in Benghazi?
The political circus is traveling across the USA for electing our next president. The most unlikely cult hero is Bernie Sanders. On the CNN reality entertainment program of Democrat Candidate Debate Bernie invited everyone to join his revolution. He wants to make the USA more like Denmark?!
The official website for Sanders asks the question; “Ready to start a political revolution?” If it involves any work or effort or sacrifice, then the Sanders crowd would not get out in the rain to be revolting. Bernie believes in Santa’s workshop. His federal elves would be shoveling out money to fatten the academic empire of irrelevant political science majors.
I can see the jumbo jets with revolutionary followers of Sanders eagerly boarding the Denmark immersion experience. Denmark expects you to learn their language. Denmark expects you to work? Denmark is not concerned about climate change because they have a miserable climate anyway!
I am quite sure the Sanders followers will not be reading this old hobo. But I did enjoy the lunacy of Sanders inviting the USA to join his Revolution. The real revolution that made us free would never be backed by Sanders. LIVE FREE OR DIE
If Hillary is auditioning to become a bar tender, then we know Happy Hour is a just a memory. Everybody has to cherish and enjoy their favorite saloon or tavern. I am absolutely convinced that drinking together is what we need in the USA. Would I knowingly walk into a bar tended by Hillary? NEVER! I want to have fun and relaxation sharing cocktails with neighbors and buddies.
I had a lot of concern that our country was wandering in the prohibition wilderness 20 years ago. Sales of hard liquor were plunging and appreciation of our heritage in whiskey barrels was vanishing. The Millennial generation is restoring my hope that we all can enjoy a cocktail again! The value of premium bourbon has entered the stratosphere. I am looking forward to driving to the Jack Daniels distillery while attending the Cadillac Allante Club car meet in Nashville.
My wife’s 40th high school reunion in Hinsdale, Illinois had a charity fund raiser with raffle tickets. She won a bottle of Old Fitzgerald barreled in 1947 and bottled back in 1955. Her girl friend class mate inherited from her father his collection of liquor. He had excellent taste in selecting his collection. I was delighted at her good luck to win a bottle she donated for the drawing. I definitely look forward to our visiting her class mate and seeing this astounding collection. This bottle is valued over $1,000.
Too many of her class mates were buried, or in failing health unable to attend. Those attending were merry indeed to celebrate enjoying life together. I see our duty is to survive and enjoy life together. Millennials are dedicated to enjoying life to full measure! I do not trust the dooms day prophets of our failings and misery. I prefer to have a laugh together and a cocktail to celebrate our lives.
Our president officially gave his permission to let Vladimir Putin take control at UN meeting. Syria has a buddy in the Kremlin selling weapons and military support to keep Assad in power. We can sit back and just watch what happens now.
There is little point in listing the accomplishments of our foreign policy, because there are none. ISIS is on the march and growing. Iraq is in ruins. Afghanistan is collapsing. Ukraine has been forgotten by the USA. China has a military alliance with Russia. China is invading our sea boundaries. China is infringing on airspace of our air force. Russia has instructed USA to stay out of Syria air space.
When our president speaks, nobody listens anymore. Even his loyal supporters do not expect any more gifts of “Obama-phones”. The union leaders got their reward from the president on denying the Keystone pipeline. This decision only took 6 years. That is Obama working on a fast track review? Canada was reassured in the 2012 campaign that their patience would be rewarded. Canada learned their reward by waiting for Obama.
We do need to send more of our reporters to Siberia now. Their blind loyalty to hiding the blemishes of our fearless leader did deny us facts. USA public only knows 10% of what our allies have learned with press from Europe accurately reporting our problems.
Survey of USA public confirms we do not trust our commercial news reporting. Donald Trump is ready to alert his audience when a “reporter” is not seeking facts but seeking publicity.
Putin does have reporters, lawyers, and whistle blowers mysteriously die when unveiling his failures. I think Brian Williams and George Stephanopoulos can anchor news broadcasts from Moscow for the next 5 years. They both did an excellent job of shielding our president Obama from any blame on his obvious failures. They can set a new standard of excellence in propaganda in Russia.
Putin might even be more popular than Obama because Russia has zero tolerance for Islamic terrorists. Putin does have allies with Muslims around the world who also do not want to tolerate Islamic terrorists. However, Obama cautioned the UN not to profile Islam as primary source of terrorist activity. Even England’s prime minister Cameron had to inform our president that all of the active terrorists are Islamic!
I do like vodka and caviar. I do like Cuban cigars. Our president has failed our country, but I can find some consolation by enjoying Russia and Cuba best products.
Saudi Arabia has estimated that 1.95 million pilgrims gathered during the Haj. One of the activities of worship is to stone the devil. Two streams of pilgrims tried crossing at an intersection with deathly results. Hundreds upon hundreds of pilgrims were crushed and killed by pilgrims.
I do not like being in crowds anyway. The Indianapolis 500 is exciting and I did go with my wife in 1994 in A.J.Foyt pit area seating we won bidding at a charity auction.
We were amid hundreds of thousands of people all pouring out after a great race won by Al Unser Jr. I did not feel panic, but I did not feel comfortable being pushed and carried along by a mass of people around us. They were selling helicopter rides out but my wife was scared and refused so we kept plodding along by foot.
USA had a lot of pilgrims crowding in to see Pope Francis during his visit. We didn’t have anybody crushed in mob panics. Saudi Arabia has annually Haj pilgrims visiting. It is hard to understand how an annual event going for centuries can become such a tragic surprise.
There is some merit to consider a “stone the devil” tradition in the USA. Of course, this would offend the atheists who refuse to acknowledge any devil. Celebrating this around Washington D.C. could include some interaction with our elected representatives and bureaucrats in both EPA & IRS. However, we can expect them to leave town avoiding this celebration of attacking the devil.
I loved Flip Wilson when he hosted his own television show with guest celebrities. Flip always had the famous excuse; “The devil made me do it!” It was even funnier because he was Geraldine who was a wayward lady. We don’t have anybody in our popular culture with his humor or powers of observation.
This lady made an apology video to the Muslims who killed our ambassador in Libya. She seems a little batty. We admire her coming back from poverty after leaving the White House. This lady got spirit but she got no talent.
Her foreign policy advice to our president got Russia laughing at us with Putin troops in Syrua. Libya is in ruins after she pushed out their government, and smuggled guns to Syria while our ambassador was killed. China is building a military naval base in the China Sea to trap Japan and bottle up their navy.
We cannot imagine the havoc and suffering she can cause as our president. We admire her spunk to act like the laws do not apply to her.
She wants your vote, your money, and your staying in the dark.
These times of rioting, inciting racial divisions, and considering police as pigs to be slaughtered are not new. Let’s go back to the ancient times of 1971. Into the mainstream culture a tough law enforcement officer became a national celebrity. Dirty Harry was a movie character portrayed by Clint Eastwood with a smoldering anger on the judicial bias toward criminal protection.
Today in 2015 we have a president and an attorney general who talk like all police are brutes, thugs, and are only hired if they have a racial bias against blacks. This meddling does not help the victims who are predominantly black. Crime punishes the black families who cannot afford to leave gang dominated neighborhoods.
It would really help if our attorney general spent a month living in Chicago, Baltimore, or Memphis to see first hand the challenges of controlling criminals. It is easy to control police by demanding more regulations, federal investigations, and ordering police to be bystanders watching rioters burn down a city. It is easy to wonder out loud if police are too rough and too quick to handcuff suspects. It is more important to the citizens being targeted by criminals to get the police involved in fighting crime again.
Our economy and our employment under president Carter and under his clone president Obama are punishing our working families. It has never been a better time to be a criminal than right now! Arrested criminals can collect thousands of dollars up to millions of dollars on suing the police that arrest them. Even Dirty Harry would be shocked at lawyers making money for arrested criminals.
How many of my fellow citizens would volunteer to go on a midnight ride to a murder site in the south side of Chicago today? Some of these actually turn into an ambush to attack police! There is no doubt that if our president had someone break into his home in Chicago, he would not be the one to handle the invader.
President Reagan enjoyed using a phrase made famous by Clint Eastwood’s character; Go ahead! Make my day! Let me give you a clue. Dirty Harry enjoyed the opportunity to subdue a criminal with force if necessary.
The USA has been yearning for a return to enjoying the Late Show after retirement of Letterman. The set and theater for the Colbert Late Show is amazing. The money they saved by giving Letterman the bums rush out was lavishly spent for Colbert. Filling the void in the time slot was odds and ends from rerun junk room of forgotten canceled series.
I was looking forward to learning about latest movie projects for Scarlett Johansonn. Unfortunately, she could barely speak without a barrage from the Colbert stream of unconsciousness humor. She started to talk about her husband and their living in France. She was unable to complete a sentence without confusing diversions from the master of confusion Colbert.
Johansonn has a commanding screen presence amid the Avengers cast. She was not asked and could not discuss any projects of hers. Colbert was mugging his face for laughs and crouching as if ready to pounce on her during her brief time. I felt sorry for her strange treatment for supposed amusement.
Colbert has a huge following. This confirms that anyone can succeed in the USA. He essentially has no competition because the other national networks have embraced mediocrity as well. Colbert contorts his face as an old vaudeville entertainer who needs to exaggerate his expressions so the folks in the last row know they should laugh.
Labor Day is a holiday that signals a time of change in my calendar. All of the vacation home people enjoy this holiday as their last hoorah on our lake. Us old timers on the lake celebrate with a “chili dump” party every year for the last 20 years.
We all meet at the same house every year. Our children are adults and we see grand children racing around just like our children used to do. People arrive by boat, by car, and on foot. Everybody brings a pot of chili plus a side dish or desert. We are happy to see everybody together healthy and happy. Some faces are now just memories after their passing. Their surviving spouses carry on and party.
A huge cauldron sized kettle gets all of the chili dumped in. I forgot this year to bring my favorite Cajun hot sauce to spice my chili bowl dining. A massive ladle stirs the mix, and the kids get hungry and anxious to eat supper. Our friend Steve always ignores the bedlam and we chat over a nice cold beer waiting for the ladies to organize the wild Indians. The cauldron is set onto a massive plank so it won’t burn off the varnish on their long dining room table. Shredded cheese is on a massive bowl to top your chili. Frito scoop chips and crackers are ready to help in devouring the chili. After an hour of 18 adults and 10 kids feasting, there is usually 5 gallons of chili left in the kettle.
Every year is different but every year is the same. Some get drunk one year and need a ride home. Most don’t get drunk and sit around bare foot in their 20 feet high ceiling cabin telling tales and jokes. The kids keep busy down at the lake front with frog catching contests and goofing around. They flip on their outdoor lights down the 40 foot hill to the lake front for the kids to see. The dogs are racing around happy for the company and some scraps of food usually forbidden. I like to see at the bar on a stool near my wife and drift in and out of several conversations.
The skies let loose a torrent of rain that went on for 5 hours this year. Lightning lit up the sky and thunder trembled the huge windows facing the lake. The boat travelers who came by pontoon huddled under their boat canopy as they went back across the lake to their home. As usual everybody got some chili for taking home in their pot. Anne usually packages up several meals in the freezer to enjoy in the winter. We will have our fireplace blazing away looking out from our dining room table at our snow covered lake enjoying chili from this evening.
So the slow annual exodus from the lake starts this week. There is a lot less traffic in town and around the restaurants after the summertime crowd disappears every year.
I had to listen to some New Orleans jazz while setting up the barbeque for our dinner of bratwurst. Al Hirt always gets me in a good mood on my outdoor speakers while I watch the twilight over the lake. Dem Golden Slippers and Ain’t Misbehaving are great fun.
This Christmas we will be visiting New Orleans to greet Papa Noel and listen to a lot of jazz with my son and his fiancée coming from Seattle to join us with our hockey coach son.
We enjoy meeting people and sharing stories. Whether at the local flea market, farmers market, or sitting at a pub you can expect folks in Wisconsin to talk to you. I have watched Queen Latifah on her television show. She puts her audience at ease and draws upon interesting guests to share stories.
It would be easy to create racial tension or cultural arguments on the variety of guests visiting. Queen Latifah does deal with serious issues of the day seriously instead of sensationally. The level of intellect and ideas represent the best of the USA in her discussions.
The big mouth drum beaters like Reverend Al Sharpton inflame and divide communities because it is easier that way. It takes more time and effort to include and connect a diversity of people. Queen Latifah is more informative and enjoyable than any of the late night shows. She inspires me with confidence that we are not street fighters when issues arise. The talent and intellect of all of her guests makes me proud to know we have such great people in our country.
It does bother me to see so called Commercial News Media Reporters bait and make controversy for the sake of ratings. This upsets and inflames without informing the public. FOX news is part of this bull fight ritual of spearing people and waving a red cape to get some crazy charge on television.
In addition to her ease at putting guests at ease on her program, Queen Latifah has great talent in both acting and singing. Got to love the Queen!
A county clerk in Morehead Kentucky dared to ignore the Supreme Court of the USA! People for centuries have celebrated weddings all wrong! We are prejudiced and dumb to think that marriage is between a man and a woman. Life is so much better now that we can see gays hugging and kissing to celebrate getting “married”? Kim Davis is a county clerk. She did not think a marriage license makes sense if it contradicts the Christian values of the founders of our country.
Why did men marry women for centuries? Where do children come from? These questions do not matter to our Supreme Court.
Now the whole world has to dissect Kim Davis for a ritual autopsy on the failures and shortcomings of her own life. Nobody is perfect or without sin. She has been sent to jail by a local judge who is mad that anybody dares to express civil disobedience. Set up a recall election to remove Kim Davis.
The whole insanity of the Supreme Court decision is that they ignored that the majority of states voted to recognize legally that marriage is between one man and one woman. So LGBT waves banners and weeps in joy to see our White House lit up like a carnival tent with rainbow colors.
Atonement calls for a public whipping of Kim Davis and challenging how she dares to follow her conscience. Anyway, she sits in a jail cell with no bail allowed. Does this judge seem a bit excessive and extreme on crushing Kim Davis?
Pizza parlors that would not cater a gay wedding become a national target. Bakers that refuse to bake a gay wedding cake need to be punished with excessive fines. I could not find a gay wedding cake topper at a baker supply web site. This insane focus reminds me of a mass hysteria. I found a wedding topper that is bound to offend a lot of people. Enjoy the outrage of being offended.
The Obama pact with Syria 3 years ago was to stop the use of chlorine bombs that poison and suffocate civilians. This was a public relations victory for our president who erased the “red line” for Syria atrocities. Millions flee Syria while tens of thousands continue to die since our president negotiated safety for Syria.
Our European allies are struggling and overwhelmed with millions of refugees pouring across the continent. Our allies have a crisis within their own borders with a flood of people willing to die, for a chance to stay alive. Our president pretends he knows nothing about this problem, that he created by weakness in dealing with the dictator Assad.
Putin saw the weakness in our president. Putin volunteered to participate in the agreement to prevent the USA from intervening in Syria. Our president was happy to accept Putin getting involved. Just as our president is happy to have Putin involved in the Iran nuclear deal.
There is only silence from the USA as our European allies struggle with results of our indecisive weakness to stop Syria genocide. Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Sweden and other country leaders do not expect any answers or action from our president. Our president is busy talking about the greatest problem we face is “climate change”?
