cat-food-funny-cats-animals-humor-us-com-101055You know what really scares me about this election? Not Donald trump winning (although that would be a major disaster), but what I think is the end of the two party system as we know it. Now some people will say well that’s great it hasn’t been getting much done of late anyhow. I think it’s bad because of the mass confusion that would accompany its demise. I mean you’d have people with no experience on the world platform trying to negotiate with other countries that even though they may be friends would love to take advantage of us. It would be like having a hundred Donald Trump’s running around instead just one asshole. I think having someone like say a Bill Bradley or Joe Biden running as an independent could really be a good thing. Even Bernie Sanders would be OK. But to have four or five different parties might not be a good thing. Now as far as this election is concerned I’m surprised the democrats didn’t start a King Obama movement like some people did for Reagan back in the day. If trump gets elected you’ll see less getting accomplished in the Congress and the Senate, then you see now. Having a polarizing character such as him would cause a complete breakdown in both houses. This is the same effect; I think that the demise of the two party system would have on future elections. But what the hell do I know I’m just a cat living in Colombia.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWell the Republicans finished their fiasco called a convention this week and the Democrats have started theirs. The thing about Democrats and Republicans that bothers me the most is the fact that they blindly support candidates and issues just so long as they’re called either Republican or Democrat. In other words they don’t seem to exercise free will in their choices. I’ve had several friends who were members of one or the other of these parties and I asked them why you are a Democrat or why are you a Republican and I never get a satisfying answer. It seems they either go with what their parents are or they go opposite to rebel. I guess it saves them a lot of time and trouble researching their reasons. But it’s this attitude that gives bad people such as Trump and Clinton a chance to be President. If you look at Congress and the Senate in the last few years they simply vote for their own parties programs or against the other parties programs without offering an alternative. This has resulted in the most in effectual congress in years. An example of this is Obama Care now the fact that I don’t live in the United States anymore make it difficult for me to decide if this is a good or bad program. But I see Republicans saying as soon as the Election is over and they win they will repeal the program. Ok I can go along with that the only problem is it seems they just want to get rid of it because it was a Democratic idea and they really don’t offer any Alternative plans. It’s ok to dislike something and want it removed but have an idea of what you’re going to put in its place so people don’t go crazy trying to figure out if they have health insurance or not. it seems politicians don’t care what the people want or need as long as there party is the one making the decisions. In other countries there would be either a political or military rebellion but I guess American are too busy playing Pokémon Go to give a shit. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

vSorry I’m late with this post but for those of you that don’t know I’ve developed arthritis in a good portion of my body and I also had a toothache which was removed this morning. But let’s get to it now. Republicans are blaming Democrats and Democrats are blaming Republicans for the deaths of police by gunfire that has happened in the last couple of weeks. Listen up people we didn’t just buying and carrying guns the dramatic up swings gun purchasing first started during the race riot of the sixties as well as the Cuban incident. What we do with these guns and why we do it is a different story. I was once told by a member of a street gang that if you carry a knife you better be prepared to use. Pulling it out and showing it isn’t going to stop somebody from beating the crap out of you it’s just going to make the beating worse. Now let’s look at Dallas and its open carry law. I not sure about you but I sure as hell don’t feel any safer having the guy next carrying an AR15 on his shoulder. You see I know guns I was an expert shot with many different weapons back in the day. I didn’t end up in any war but I was in the service. I had a great many friends come home and when people would ask how it was man they would answer it was fucking crazy. You had to worry about being shot by men from your own unit. Having a bunch of people walking around with guns ain’t making the world a safer place. Either is standing up in front of a bunch of TV cameras and blaming the President of the country. You want him to stop Ok lets have him declare Marshal Law in the country and then stand back. Because you know all the militias and gun carrying citizens aren’t going to stand still when he say we want you guns. I haven’t got a real answer to the world’s problems and I fear no one else does either. I think that if Aliens don’t invade then it’s going to take a war like we’ve never seen and even then I’m not sure people would get the idea. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

riot-graphicIt’s Sunday and ordinarily I would be posting something to do with my campaign for President. But the events of the past week just make it seem ridicules to try and promote myself, so I’m going to turn the post over to my buddy Jeff he’s older and has a better perspective on this shit. Hey guys as you know I’m 70 years old which means I was around for desegregation and all the riots. Now we had some great men back then Martin Luther King, the Kennedy’s, Malcolm X and many more the ones above were all assassinated. So far we have lost a great many people to the problem of race. Things are bad now in relations between people and some of that can be blamed on radicals that profit from trouble between us. Some can be blamed on 9/11 and the desire for more police protection. In that rush some of the vetting wasn’t done and let’s face it as hard as it is for a white cop to live in his neighborhood think how hard it is for a black cop. So yes there is a disproportionate amount of white cops on the force. Every time there is an instance of black and white police get nervous. During the Newark riots which I saw firsthand due to towing cars out there, we were warned to be careful how we reacted if the police stopped us for any reason. I personally had a 38 police revolver pointed at my head by a cop I knew not to be to stable. I watched as nice neighborhoods made up of just black people were ravaged by rioters. Let’s face folks even the rap artist from Compton isn’t moving back. Just like the majority of white folks from bad neighborhoods don’t want to move back. Therein lies the problem most not all people that come from less than sterling neighborhoods don’t want to go back to live. In most cases they won’t drive through the area without protection. This distrust brings problems Muslims are thought to be potential terrorists. Latinos are drug dealer looking to steal your jobs. Muslims are just looking for a better life as are most Latinos. If we don’t want them here we need to make it possible for them to survive in their own countries. One thing I learned n my life one race cannot survive without the others. It’s time for the Trumps and Giuliani’s and Palin’s of this time to shut up we need leaders who are going to bring us together not rip us apart. In a world full of people who want to see us fail we cannot survive if we’re trying to kill each other. This is Jeff and Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

It’s Independence Day in America and the politicians and the hot eating contests are all out there vying for your attention. Well who am I to be any different since I’m running for President. You know what’s sad that some people think Independence Day is just the name of a movie. Some people think being free and having the right to vote isn’t a good thing. You can hear them yelling that we have to much Democracy because the general public first supported Trump and then in England they withdrew from the European Union. I think it’s a good thing. Too long have the elite been making decisions for us. I think right or wrong we should make the decisions. If there’s going to be a war and the average guy is the one who’s going to be fighting in it shouldn’t he have some sort of say? You want us to pay taxes and then we can’t tell you where to spend the money because we’re too dumb. Hay assholes you don’t pay your fair share so maybe it’s time you didn’t get to make all the decisions. Now I don’t think either Donald Trump or leaving the European Union are good ideas but I do think it’s about time the average guy shook things up. Look at me a cat running for President can you imagine how much that would shake things up. I’d love to see CNN on election night reporting that I had just captured the electoral vote lead by winning California. Can you hear them at Clinton’s headquarters? A fucking what is leading the race. Wouldn’t it be nice if we elected a leader that everybody like not just a few in certain states? Well I’ll let you all get back to your BBQ’s.
