Too Little, Too Late for Rubio and Cruz

  • Do you realize that in New York, breaking immigration law is a rewarding experience? Check it out. Cheat on your taxes? Fine and/or imprisonment. DWI? Fine and/or imprisonment. Medicaid fraud? Fine and/or imprisonment. However, come here illegally, overstay your Visa, and you can teach in our schools and, soon in New York City, vote. You wait. If you allow the State Senate to become majority Democrat, illegal immigrants will be allowed to vote in state elections.
  • If you watched the last two Republican debates, one thing is perfectly clear: Carson, Kasich, Cruz and Rubio are playing checkers; Trump is playing chess. He is betting that his base is secure, so now it is time to expand it for a national election. He is now running a national campaign.  He understands that the social issues are way down on the list of voter concerns. So, he is emphasizing those issues that cross party lines.  Look at the internal break down of his support. He does not need majority support of the minority community or women; 30 percent will do. He is getting it.

Even though it looks like Cruz and Rubio have finally grown a pair, they are still playing defense. He treated the others as no more than an annoyance. It reminded me of when Joe (my older brother) and I were kids and we would gang up on Dad. He would let us think we were winning until he grew tired then all he had to do was stretch his arms and swat us away.

A big deal was made of the fact that years ago, Trump hired foreign workers. Man, they thought they had him. Hypocrite! Except, he brought those workers here legally as the laws were different then than now. He explained how the labor market in Florida worked. In doing so, he pointed out how he as a person of the private sector knew better then these politicians how job markets work. Unlike those others on the stage going after him, he has actually hired people. He has actually built things. Pow! Go away you little buggers.

  • We are told that 65 percent of Republican voters do not want him. Those are old numbers. In Nevada he garnered 45 percent of the vote. Cruz, Rubio got around 25 percent of the vote. Using their logic, that means 75 percent of Republican voters do not want them. Actually when one adds the percentage of votes that both Cruz and Rubio got it still does not equal the percentage of votes Trump got.
  • When one listens to Hillary tell it, she has been at the forefront of fighting for women and minorities. Then she goes on to tell us how life in 2016 really sucks rocks for them. So, if she has been leading the fight since the ‘70s, and it still sucks rocks, what does that tell you about how well she has done leading that fight? It goes on to prove that the only thing she has succeeded at is failure.
  • Here is the present state of the Democrat Party. Bernie Sanders is, admitted even by his detractors, to be an honest person; a true believer. He is also considered unelectable. Hillary, who polling among Democrats shows, is considered a liar a phony and fake. She is also considered the only one electable. This is why Democrats must be defeated wherever you find them.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

Cambridge Analytica used Facebook ...

Trump Dumps on Amazon; I Dump on Trump

President Trump attacked the online retail giant Amazon earlier this month, accusing the behemoth corporation of paying “little or no taxes to state and local governments,” and taking advantage of the United States Postal Service and “causing tremendous loss to the U.S.”  

Not true! Since April 2017, Amazon has collected sales taxes in all states that levy ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Seen Any Good Ol’ Movies Lately?

As I become more, uh, mature, I find myself enjoying older movies more than newer movies. The trio of films presented here for your consideration are three of my all-time favorites. They share great stories, great screenplays, great directing, great acting. They also have in common ratings in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes, and a place of distinction in the National Film Registry, a highly selective ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Tipping the Scales in My Favor

As I was settling into bed one night, I happened to catch my husband out of the corner of my eye.

He was getting on the scale.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I yelled at him. He jerked his head around and looked at me with alarm.

“What? I’m weighing myself.”

I jumped out of bed and yanked him off the scale. 

“You can’t do that now!” I ...
