Trump or Biden

The White House

Who should win the Presidential election of 2024, Joe Biden or Donald Trump?

In my opinion neither! Why? Because both of them are showing signs of having cognitive (memory) medical problems that will most likely get worse with age.

Biden is 81 years old and Trump is 77 years old. While there is no age limit set forth in the US Constitution, it does not seem like a good idea to have the top executive of our government having a problem remembering people, facts, etc.

There is a minimum age barrier, so why not a maximum one? Our Constitution lists only three qualifications for the Presidency — the President must be at least 35 years of age, be a natural born citizen, and must have lived in the United States for at least 14 years. Nothing about aging out, IE. being too old to run.

Maybe this is the time to amend the Constitution to only allow those aged 32 to 70 to be President of the United States. After all as we all get older medical conditions/problems do start to show up. This is all part of being human.

I hope you noticed that I lowered the minimum age by three years. The age defined in the Constitution is in my opinion a little to high. People today mature earlier and are better educated than those who were alive when the Constitution was ratified.

Who in their right mind wants someone who is not medically fit to be President? Not me and hopefully not you either. Thus it is time to say bye bye to both Biden and Trump and get some new younger blood in the game.

Everything, but Taxes!

Everything, but Taxes!

The New Jersey legislature is addressing many issues and almost completely ignoring the giant problem that this state has. Property taxes are sky high and nothing is really being done to fix this monstrous burden that home owners are saddled with.

Hanukkah and George Washington

 

Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah and with so many antisemitic attacks upon the Jewish people. I thought I would point to two sources to show that how they were involved with the creation of the United States at birth.

Here are the links:

A Story of a Jewish Soldier

Hanukah and George Washington

Both talk of a Jewish Soldier in the Continental Army.

May those who celebrate this joyous celebration of the Maccabees over their Greek-Syrian invaders remember that victory has echoed through the ages.

Why is Murphy Governor?

Murphy the taxer

I can not fathom why Murphy is still a popular governor. His latest debacle is that he waited till 10:00PM to declare a State of Emergency for New Jersey. Continue reading Why is Murphy Governor?
