I've Got to Ask!

Kopp Disclosure
(John 3:19-21)


"An Indianapolis cousin of mine, who was also a high school classmate,
did very badly at the University of Michigan
while I did badly at Cornell.

His father asked him what the trouble was,
and he made an admirable reply:
'Don't you know, Father?
I'm dumb!'

It was the truth."

Kurt Vonnegut



    So many years and rebirths ago, I was eating with ___ and our wives at the Holiday Inn near McMurray, Pennsylvania a few hours before he spoke at the church.

    He's the most inspirational speaker that I've ever heard.

    If I didn't want to keep confidentiality, I'd reveal his name so you could google some of his speeches.

    Anyway, he said Bill is among the most intelligent and authentically caring people that he's ever met; but he does have a weakness for willing women...any of 'em...all of 'em...insatiable appetite for 'em.

    When it comes to Mrs. Clinton, he said she is vulgar, mean, nasty, vindictive, untrustworthy, a pathological liar, arrogant, condescending, selfish, and a poster child for the b-word.

    He also said, "One of my favorite things is to hear people who think they're sooooooo smart say such stupid things."

    I thought about that conversation the other day while wondering, "How in the name of anything but heaven is she gonna get the nomination for President and maybe even take the oath?"

    Are American voters thaaaaaaat stupid?

    Uh, yeah!

    Look at the last two!

    That's when I remembered Vonnegut's comment in one of my favorite books: Palm Sunday.


    My favorite candidate is Ben Carson.

    Brilliant, articulate, compassionate, ethical, nicely Christian, and, ergo, unelectable.

    Americans aren't smart enough to elect him.

    Unless something happens like a Red Sea thing, it's gonna be Donald or Hillary.

    I like Marco.

    It would be prudent for GOP crackers to concede America has yellows, reds, browns, and blacks too.

    He is the most reasonable on immigration, national defense, and...cuisine.

    Great choice to prove Republicans aren't just about rich WASPs; and most polls have him beating wazzhername.

    No chance.

    No Ben.

    No Marco.

    Too nice for America.

    It's gonna be Donald or Hillary.

    Yep, Americans are thaaaaaaat stupid.



    I know we're in a rush to elect a woman; but, geez, gulp, sigh, gasp...  Is she reallllllly the best her gender has to offer?  Are women that desperate for the keys to the White House? 


    O.K., I know people are ___ed off.  Quoting from Network, people are "mad as hell and not going to take it anymore!"  But, reallllllly, Donald?

    Hillary is a pathological liar.

    Donald is pathologically arrogant.


    Knowing Americans are thiiiiiiis stupid, would we rather have a pathological liar or someone who is pathologically arrogant as President?

    Hell of a choice.



    I've got to ask!

    Are these reallllllly the two best whatevers that we've got for the most powerful position on the planet?

    I know we've been on a losing streak in these elections; but for Christ's sake...

    President Trump?

    President Grammy Clinton?

    Before hanging that chad, puuuuuuuhleeeeeeease ask some questions.

    Who's better for America?

    Who's more stuck on her/himself?

    Do you have any clue what they reallllllly believe?

    Feel lucky?

    Feel predestined?

    Is she really an advocate for women's or anybody's rights?

    "C'mon, ladies, settle down!" 

    That's from Les Miserables for the ignorant who will probably vote for...

    How can anybody say she is an advocate for anybody's rights with a straight face when she enabled a serial sexual predator and led "Bill's Bimbo Squad" to destroy the lives of so many of his conquests?

    Why would anybody buy that "I'm a Presbyterian" stuff from Donald?

    What does he mean by that?

    Unless somebody just cooked the books, ain't no record of membership, attendance, tithing, any Presbyterian Church in the USA.

    If he is a Presbyterian, is that a good thing?

    Think about it.

    Dying denomination.

    Is that the kinda religionist that we want to run the country?

    Al Sharpton.  Al Sharpton!!!!!!!???????

    Do we really want a President who bends...for such a race-hater-baiter? 

    Corrective combing.

    How can I trust him to be honest about big stuff when he can't even be honest about his hairline?

    Do we want a Commander-in-Chief who plays politics and cyberspace games with lives?

    Doesn't anybody care how she and her boss enabled the deaths of American patriots around the globe so they'd be liked by Islamofascistnutballs?


    Yeah, we evolve if we're alive; but thaaaaaaat much thaaaaaaat often?

    Are Americans thhhhhhhhiiiiiiisssssss stupid?

    I guess so.


    Getting back to ___ and stupid people.

    I was standing in front of the communion table with Stimp, a great associate who I didn't appreciate enough because I was too into myself to notice him, a long time ago in North Carolina on an early Sunday morning.  A florist came in and asked, "How should I arrange the flowers for you?"  We looked at each other, Stimp laughed, and I said, "Well, brother, what did they say about this in our seminary floral arranging class?"  The florist didn't laugh...or get it.

    There was a big party in the church in Kansas City to honor somebody about something.  I'm asked in a very professional and serious kinda way, "Dr. Kopp, what kind of decorations do you think we should have?  How about the colors?  Should we have candles or flowers or both at the tables?  Desserts.  What do you think...?"  I said nothing.  She said nothing; but got it.

    Now go back to Vonnegut's quote.

    Now think of how we're gonna get Donald or Hillary as the next President of the USA.


    I see only one way out of this mess.

    Tailor in Fiddler: "Wouldn't this be a good time for the Messiah to come?"

    Come, Lord Jesus!!!!!!!



Blessings and Love!

Bob, this should answer your question:

Once upon a time there was a king who
wanted to go fishing.

He called the royal weather forecaster and
inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours.
The weatherman assured
him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days.

So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen.

On the way he met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, "Your Majesty, you should return to the palace at once because in just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area". The king was polite and considerate, he replied: "I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him and I will continue on my way."

So he continued on his way.
However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky.
The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition.
Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.

The farmer said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain."

So the king hired the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential positions.

And the practice is unbroken to this day...

My wife and I voted early today in Oklahoma and both voted for Bernie. But come the general we were both leaning to Trump. Read today Al Sharpton said he would leave the country should Trump be elected President. That nailed our vote for Donald!!!
