BON MOTS

Hillary-

Are we the only ones that have a hard time concentrating on a Hillary speech?

She starts out in a sort of rational tone and works herself up in to a screeching rant that is most annoying and vaguely reminiscent of Howard Dean. Four years of that and we’ll all wind up in a rubber room.   Suggested Trump nickname for Hillary – “Shrill Hill.”

Hillary is her own bobble-head. Whenever she makes a forceful point with which she agrees, her head bobs up and down in a way that would make any major leaguer proud, and she doesn’t stop bobbing until the applause has died down.

We are looking forward to watching the Secret Service working to defend President Hillary while law enforcement officers attempt to drag her out of the Oval Office to stand trial for negligent disclosure of national secrets. Will she be able to pardon herself if convicted? Can she pardon herself before conviction and avoid trial altogether?

Obama-

Bumper Sticker – “Elect Putin: Put a Competent Communist in the White House”

He may not be a Muslim, but his obvious affinity for Islam makes him, at best, a CINO (Christian in Name Only).

Obama suggests that Trump apparently fails to understand what a serious job being President of the United States is. We assume that, by that remark, Obama means that the President must be willing to stay on top of his golf game, must be willing to endure long flights at taxpayer expense to exotic vacation destinations, and must be willing to read speeches on the teleprompter that have been written by others. Damn, throw us in that “serious briar patch.”

Race Relations-

How does it improve race relations to always blame the cop with a gun and ignore the prior bad conduct of the shooting “victim?”

Why is it so difficult for people to believe that there are more blacks in jail because blacks commit more crimes? Oops! We forgot about the corrupt law enforcement and judicial system which persecutes and prosecutes more black criminals for no apparent reason and just for the fun of it.

How come a black person cannot be a racist (even if his or her comments or actions are clearly motivated only by race), but a white person is almost always deemed to be a racist (even if his or her comments or actions are obviously wholly unrelated to race)?

If reparations are due to certain groups as a consequence of ancestral slavery, why not the descendents of union soldiers who were killed or maimed during the Civil War in the effort to free the slaves?

Congress-

Does anyone disagree that the first act of an all-Republican controlled government should be to pass legislation requiring Members of Congress to be bound by all of the laws to which it subjects the rest of us-including Obamacare? And, no, they don’t get to beg off by saying that they have purchased other health insurance (using taxpayer dollars). Let’s see how long Obamacare lasts when the Senators don’t get to keep their doctors, keep their plans, and go to the nearest hospital for treatment (and we are not talking about free hospital care for privileged Congressmen). And, oh yeah, the rest of us pay for our stamps, health clubs, country clubs, lunches, and Uber. A few less perks and maybe we can get back to the citizen legislators that the Founding Fathers had in mind. And the second act of a Republican government? Abolish the Department of Education, the EPA, the SEC, the Labor Department, and the Department of Agriculture – just for starters.

Long-term objective – ease back onto the Gold Standard (no more quantitative easing).

Election-

 

Does the Party that seeks to become the Party of the People get off to a good start by having a Chairman named “Reince Prebus”?

Immigration-

Here’s an alternate proposal. After Mexico pays for the wall on our southern border, let’s have them pick up the tab for medical care, law enforcement, education, and taxes attributable to the 12 million illegal immigrants in the country. We don’t have to give them citizenship, but at least we can be a bit more charitable knowing that they are paying (or, more accurately, Mexico is paying) their way.

Capitol-

Has anyone else wondered if the restoration of the Capitol dome is intended as a metaphor for the federal government generally? It’s something that should have been taken care of over time, it is incredibly costly, nobody appears to be working on it, it apparently will take forever to complete, and it will come in well over budget. And, if you want a second opinion, it’s ugly too.
