Within the Splendor of a Las Vegas Wynn Casino
Democrats Debate Merits of Attacking the “Casino-Rich Speculators” and Instituting “Progressive Programs”
Irony Upon Irony!
Yet the Democrats spoke overall about issues not in Ad Hominems like the Republicans. It was an interesting evening at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The crowd was boisterous and the performers, five Democratic Candidates, were accomplished. Each played their respective roles as they were directed.  Even the CNN moderator, Anderson Cooper, switched from his inane cherubic countenance into a referee at a prize fight—tough and relentless.

The key performers, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, acted as prescribed by some ethereal Hollywood script of the 1940’s. Bernie became the reflection of a street smart kid-visionary who utters prophetic statements and goes into the boxing match with the full gusto of the Socialist actor, Johnnie Garfield. Hillary Clinton, true to form, was poised and reactive like Joan Crawford in the Academy Award movie—“Mildred Pierce”- the story of an ambitious self-driving waitress cum restaurant owner who has been denigrated for being both crass and boorish.
In the case of Hillary, she has shown time and time again that prevarication concealed within facts and figures can sound convincingly endearing, if not compelling. The ancillary actors performed as expected—on cue. Even the literary fighting Marine, Jim Webb showed some fortitude as a decorated Vietnam Warrior. Martin O’Malley, the ex-governor of Maryland, a state without tax abeyance, sparked up at certain moments of levity.

For the most part, I can say that overall the Democratic Acting Company is far more impressive than the Republican Touring Group which has morphed into caravan of clowns. I was entertained last night because my expectations were so low. In fact, I realized that after this initial performance of the Democrats and the two former so-called ‘Republican Debates’---I will tune out. There is something comical and pathetic, as our presidential candidates are paraded around in a circus of whirlwind tours across the country, in a meet’n greet pantomime that signifies very little.
In the 21 Century, an election process should be simple, press a button for those who represent your interests and be done with it. However, as the Presidency becomes increasingly irrelevant and the Federal Government becomes top-sided with ineptness and corruption, then not voting becomes a far more salient issue for me.
As we have not punished any of the previous Presidents for their inequities [well documented in my past blogs], what difference does it really make to me whether I get Hillary Clinton or Donald Duck---both quack in a somewhat disturbing way.
I ask a simple question that was brought up last night.
What happened to our civilian and military leaders who wasted Six Trillion Dollars on the useless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Where are they now? Have they lost any body parts or their lives for a crass, financial enterprise called, ‘War’? I think not. As for me, when no one pays his/her dues for their gross intentional miscreant behavior, then all bets are off as to who should ostensibly be the figurehead of this Republic.
H.L. Mencken, the American essayist, wrote the following:
“Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.”

    1. Hillary swept here, yes it was horrible, and his father had store. I guess she also thinks her father was not criminal and exploatator when he employed someone to work in store. This is going to be nightmare.

    2. You would rather that the store be owned by the government and it's workers be paid by the state? Oh yeah that's worked really well. Is it even possible to fire such people when all they do is sit around at their posts and masturbate at work because they've been guaranteed a job?

    3. There is nothing wrong with masturbation... do not attack my lifestyle. I am just thinking that if store have profit, decision about what to do with profits should be democratically decided. Or work alone and do not employ anyone. That is all. That model with government is too oppressive and prone to corruption done by central government. That is all what i want.
      LETS talk about profits.

    4. If the government owns the business there will be no profits.

      If the employees own the business there will be no profits.

      If the capitalist exploiters own the business there may or may not be profits.

    6. No capitalist can own business, and organise business, just he will not own profits. That is all.

    7. Plus accumulated wealth is going to be limited on todays 3M $ per head. Accumulated wealth will be able to go up if that head enters in to shared democratic business with other person.

  3. Jim Webb is more than any metaphoric fictional character. He's not only a real soldier and patriot but a thoughtful and intelligent student of policy. His advocacy reducing prison sentences illustrates courage for an unpopular though necessary reform. During the debate he correctly identified cyber threats as among the top national security issues. He's an astute analyst of foreign affairs and national security as well as domestic policy. Non of the other Democrats knows anything about foreign affairs and national security, and the Republicans are all war mongering neo-cons.

    Webb is America's only hope at this time, and is the equivalent of Jack Kennedy with his bookish intellect, integrity and war service.

    If Webb is not successful the future is very bleak.

  4. Whoever wins Ohio will win the Presidency, so any Presidential nominee would be foolish not to bring John Kasich on board as the Vice President.

    Should Webb be nominated he should seek Kasich, a Republican. to run with him. They are ideologically compatible.

  5. btw where was Donald Trump while the Vietnam war was raging? Did he have flat feet or some other fictional physical disqualification?

  6. The real embarrisment is the loud mouth Bernie Sanders. His self-important, self-annointed messianic complex, loud voice and Brooklyn accent are a disgrace. I also suspect he's actually Jewish. "Sanders" isn't like Col. Sanders of fried chicken fame, but is probably derived from "Sandler" which is a notoriously New York Jewish name. Many New York Jews took on names so as to not sound so Jewish like "Castle" or "KIng" or "Stone," or to slightly change their names from "Sandler" to "Sanders" to masquerade as non-Jews. All these charades of course being to deceive as non of them were integrated, assimilated Jews like the families of Casper Weinberger or also SECDEF Cohen, both of whom kept their Jewish names but assimilated and became non-Jews in America....the way it should be.

    1. Here some families put ić (ich) at end. If they have German, Hungarian or Italian origin. It was mostly done by Italians who escaped from Italy to ethically cleansed Istra peninsula (cleansed from Italians by partisans), who wanted to come here and build socialism.
      Such people showed supremacy of system and were always welcomed. Today their offspring are working as bosses in hospitals and other government run organisations even today as evidence that only great genetics can understand supremacy of such system.
      Also Germans did that after war in Croatia.
      But serbs pushed out 1M Danube Swabs away, that was crime and we Croats together with Germans and Americans must make such historical injustice undo by taking northern Socialistic autonomous province of Vojvodina back to civilisation. Vojvodina had same status like Kosovo. That should be given to German capital, Germans would let that area to be given to Ottomans. But we in Croatia cannot agree with that.

  7. The disgusting, obnoxious, annoying, profane and idiotic New York comic Adam Sandler is emblematic of the worst kind of New York Jew, along with the filthy minded and vile Howard Stern.

      Bernard Sanders is a native of Brooklyn and has a Brooklyn accent.

      And you will find articles from the NYT about his
      "Brooklyn Roots as Strong as His Accent!"

    2. Dr.P I thought you were a New Yorker like me and you don't clearly see a Brooklyn accent?

      Have you graduated to mushrooms?
