‘The next Red Scare’

HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody?

Will and Grace stars demanded the names of everybody who will attend the Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills this month and want Hollywood to blacklist all his donors. Something like this last happened in the early 1950s. Who’d have thought that the next Red Scare would involve MAGA hats?

The Automobile Club of America reports a record number of Americans were on the road last week enjoying a long holiday weekend. It’s the holiday that honors the working men and working women of America who make this country work. And that holiday is called Hispanic Heritage Month.

Beto O’Rourke targeted the NRA saying he’ll force owners of assault rifles to sell them to the government when he’s president, ignoring the plague of urban handgun slaughter. Chicago marked Labor Day Weekend with 48 shootings. It proves once again that the poor never get a day off.

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts passed and ran his way into the Heisman Trophy mix in Sunday’s opener on ABC. I’m the oldest of old schools. Whenever people ask me who are my two favorite college football teams I always answer Oklahoma and whoever’s playing Notre Dame.

Mike Pence flew to Poland to honor the 80th anniversary of the German invasion starting World War II. I think of the German Army’s sweep into Poland, Russia and France every time I look at the advertising slogan at my Phillips 66 gas station. Every Journey Begins with a Single Tank.

The White House said Monday FEMA is ready for relief action when and if Hurricane Dorian makes landfall. President Trump was reported to be paying close attention to the damage done by the hurricane to Grand Bahamas Island. It could leave the beaches completely clear for development.

The Vatican Swiss Guard phoned Rome firefighters for help Saturday when Pope Francis got stuck in a Vatican elevator. If nothing else, it proves that Pope Francis does not qualify for the Ascension. Until now, I thought a Vatican elevator was a ten-year-old boy sitting on a Cardinal’s lap.

Facebook may remove Likes from under your FB posts so no one will know how popular your post was. There’d be no visible reward for posting something funny, beautiful or interesting, all posts will be equal. It’s like giving Hillary Clinton a participation trophy, so she can say she won something.

The USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor is reopened to tourists after a year’s touch-up. It was sunk in Japan’s sneak attack on December 7, 1941. The memorial serves as a silent warning to every foreign power that if you wake up Americans early on a Sunday morning, we will nuke you.
