Darrell Issa for president!

October 31, 2013

I wrote a book in 2011 on Obama and your money. In my book, “The Psychology of Investing during the Obama Years,” on page 16 I wrote “Is Obama a true Messiah or the Antichrist? Please take the question symbolically. On page 16 I wrote, “Jesus entered Jerusalem on a white ass.” Today, November 1, 2013, I can answer my symbolic question, “The antichrist entered the White House on the vote of confidence of many asses.” By the time he leaves in 2016  he would have caused enough damage to the economy, status of the United States in to the world and to the world itself that may not be reversible. In 1916 we will need a person that can clean up the mess economically, politically and personally. That man is Darrell Issa, the incredible congressman from California.

What is his chance of winning in 2016? Zero. Why do I say that? Because the American people have demonstrated time and again that they vote for nincompoop dudes (Obama, Bush 1, Bush 2, Clinton, Ford, Nixon, etc.). Then, why do I write this piece? Well, I write it just in case it triggers in you a movement. You know, some of you may decide to take me seriously. A lot of people did when I was a moderator for the Foreign Policy Association in a California College years ago! Take care.

A psychological observation of a congressmen.

October 10, 2012

I took it easy this morning, Wednesday, October 10, 2012, getting up at 11 AM. I turned on the TV and there was a stupid CNN commercial insulting my intelligence, something about a duck. Usually, I switch channels because I consider CNN commercials childish and too long. Who wants to trade a minute of silly quacks for a minute of silly CNN socializing  masquerading as new? That kind of trade is not my cup of tea…. but, wait a minute, who is that handsome man staring at a witness, “No, you answer my question, Mr Smith, and stop posturing!”

Before I analyse the personality of congressman Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, I have to tell you something about legal immigrants, as an assertive immigrant myself who made it big in the US, I consider most born Americans social push-overs, especially when facing slick government officials who can never-never admit making mistakes. Most congressmen do not  face their responsibilities to the American people. “Mr. Chairman, we at the State Department did our best to protect the life of our deceased ambassador to Libya.” “No, you didn’t, Mr. Smith.” I stared at the TV screen, Who is that Darrell Issa? How dare he pronounce the naked  truth in public, how dare he be himself, direct, not letting those that I pay their salaries get away with banalities! Darrell is a Lebanese-American Christian. His mother a Mormon and his father is Eastern Orthodox, a great combination for religious flexibility. He grew up in a Jewish neighborhood and worked for a Rabbi, a great combination for multicultural understanding. He was an officer in the US military,  served for 10 years and was cited for leadership,  a great way to shed off that terrible American civilian trait of no back bone social deference. He is self-made millionaire, the wealthiest man in congress, and, in his youth he got in trouble with he law, what an opportunity to learn about justice and forgiveness. All in all, in my analysis, if you had a few more congressmen like Darrell Issa, America would get more respect at home and abroad!
