Mayor DeBlasio and Confronting Mental Illness

Mayor De Blasio in a recent speech spoke about the cops in New York confronting mental illness in their everyday duties. What in God's name does that mean? There are probably over one million depressed New Yorkers on antidepressants. Should they be confronted by police?. That passage in his honor's speech should be retracted and rewritten for the next ditty. This is just another example of the Stigma; just throw around unedited rhetoric about the mentally ill, many of whom have recovered. When it comes to this group and slurs are rampant, silence is golden.

Selling Your Stock Now

I made a comment on a major stock and bond site that I contribute to about selling my Dow component which I had saved for a second retirement. I  think I did the right thing for my family With all the troubles and calamities we see in the news, I  figure the bubble at 17,000 has got to burst. The polls do not hold promise.

I parked the money in a money market account and will buy the stock back at the low when it comes without losing a dime as of today. Remember this as I have said, I am not timing anything but at 63 years old, there is no dress rehearsal in life.From the former television personality, The Street Economist.

The sequester blues is upon us. So many Americans going out and about do not understand it nor choose to deal with it. We the American people are hearing abject and dismal predictions for cut backs but we are not seeing them immediately. Does this mean that we should put frequent sadness and hopelessness aside? Not on your life. It is a slow trickle down effect as we are absolutely hearing of furloughs and layoffs and cut backs on tourist attractions, private and public sectors following suit. Strong arming and scary predictions are not just pie in the sky, they are wake up to reality issues. Jobs are scarce but in addition they are not keeping up with the costs of living even on a farm in Alabama. Employers are milking the bad news by overworking those that can land a position.

Today you work until you drop and do not dare to sass your boss or a partner in the business or you will be out of a job like gas in the wind. 

Also, keep the word "vacation" out of the mix when you are on a job interview.

Jeb VS Hillary A First Round KO

I have been a Republican for life and there is no doubt that I will vote for Jeb Bush under any condition, even if he commits a plethora of unbridled gaffes; Hillary had a few bad ones in 2008. I am tired of high profile lawyers in politics anyway. My father was one and I got tired of him putting me on cross as a kid every time I sneaked out of the house to do whatever on Broadway and 97th street.

Jeb makes a 100% better physical presentation than Hillary (examples are Kennedy in 1961 and elder Bush vs Dukakis in 1988 standing at the lectern). If you believe in a Silent Majority, watch for massive numbers of them turning out in 2014 and 2016. Healthcare will be the primary issue and then lack of quality jobs (I have two only because I look good, dress well, speak well and have years of hard hitting experience).

Lastly, a KO for Bush simply because Americans have had it up to here and it is as the old wag put it on the corner, a time for a change.

Jeb Bush Is Not A Dynasty Member, He Will Be Another Candidate Running

As a Republican since a child in the New York City beleaguered school system, I am very excited about the prospect of Jeb Bush as a presidential candidate. I do not think that there will emerge a subliminal message in voter's minds that relates to any "Bush Dynasty" nor memories of either President in the past.

Jeb Bush will be thought of naturally as a comparison to whoever his Democrat rival is and I do not bet on Hillary. First and foremost Jeb Bush will be thought of by voters as a moderate Republican candidate, compassionate and eager for immigration reform and educational improvement and innovation. He has a staid and steadfast (Read Moby Dick) personality and demeanor and appears to be an on the job individual which America desperately requires.

I firmly believe that Jeb Bush is the only Republican that can win the White House should he decide to run which would be a service of utmost value to  his country. He is presidential timber as they used to say in a media that puts an ersatz Jack Parr to star in the most cherished slot in Late Night television.

The purpose of my blog is not to compel you to push Jeb Bush into the presidency but rather to help you to do the right thing and consider him for his personal agenda and demeanor. The dynasty in an interesting way with Jeb Bush is effectively over and a new America  is possible if the Republicans reinvent themselves, come up with some sound and viable solutions and nominate the one man who can sweep big.

Hillary Clinton Is It For 2016

Hillary Is It For 2016

What are we doing? We are corona-ting Hillary Clinton as our next President of  election 2016 whereas a salesman who would have started at $50,000 dollars ten years ago, now may get offered $12/hr plus commission only to get laid off two weeks later for non-production. You have heard it said that Hillary is Obama in a dress. Add the fact that she does not drive, is another lawyer striving to be President and currently is engrossed in what appears to be an unsolvable mystery. In addition to the health care woes we now face at this moment, Hillary once offered us another unworkable plan.

The focal point of my blog is surprisingly not to dis Hillary as a candidate but to for instance cite a Washington Post article I read  this AM where Hillary "trounces" and has a commanding lead over  everyone in shoe leather according to polls taken in January 2014. We do not even know how Hillary's appearance will effect her chances two years from now because looks do count (1961). The only poll that does matter is the one in the booth in 2016 and we are ways a way even now from the nominating process.

My central point is this, win the lottery first, guess the trifecta at Belmont, hit a number depending where you like to place your bets; and then come back to me with political tips for the the  2016 race.
