The Suicide Bomber

The concept of a suicide bomber has been part of human history. In modern history  this idea was used by rebels forces in Sri Lanka–the LTTE– and soon became part of that nation’s civil war. Suicide bombers emerged in the Middle East and now scarcely a day goes by without one or another blowing self up. Nigeria has been plagued with a  civil war conducted by Boko Haram which kidnaps young boys and girls, keeps them captive and then sends them out to blow themselves up.

Modu Awami was a young girl held captive by Boko Haram. Among with two friends she went to a refugee camp–which contained her own family– with orders to blow selves up. She attempted to persuade her friends to disobey, they refused and killed 58 people. She tore her vest off her body and turned herself in to authorities.

The suicide bomber is motivated by ideology, religious belief, anger toward those in authority, or like Modu, simple fear that disobeying meant death.  Modi is in the minority of those who choose life to death.

With God On Our Side

There is an educational institution in the suburbs of Chicago known as Wheaton College. It is a college founded upon the ideas of someone called Jesus Christ. IN other words, those in charge of this foundation of knowledge want their students to emerge as devout Christians. A black professor named  Larycia Hawkins was deeply concerned as a Christian at the hate campaign being waged against Muslims. She noted in an email that she would put on a chador to show support for Muslims since they, like Christians, believe in the same God.

This comment did not meet with the approval of those in charge of
Wheaton College. The very idea that a Christian prayed to the same God as did a Muslim was offensive. They have determined to discharge  Professor Hawkins on the ground that she, as a Christian, should never believe that Muslims–or Jews for that matter– prayed to the same God as did Christians!

One question: if Muslims pray to a different God does that mean there are TWO Gods up in the sky?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump is living proof that half Americans can be sold bullshit.

John Kasich portrays himself as the poor man’s Ronald Reagan.

OK, Marco, you can now come out and join the crowd at a debate, the big fat loud guy won’t be there.

Ted Cruz comes across as the guy who feels insulted if forced to talk to the average guy since that means the average guy can talk back.

MY dream-a physical fight between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump.

I guess Benny Carson can now pick up his marbles and go home.

Carly Fiorina is living proof you can fail in business, fail in government, and just fail and be somebody important.

At least Bernie Sanders is no Benny Carson.

Jerks In Oregon Still There?

The ongoing mantra of conservative Republicans is that America must crush with deadly force any and all terrorist groups. In other words, if the government encounters armed terrorists then it is time to employ deadly force and show any and all terrorists that we Americans do  NOT tolerate armed militants in this nation. At this moment, there still remains armed terrorists in the state of Oregon who are holding control of American land at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge.

So, let me get this straight. When two armed terrorists invaded a government building and shot up the place, Donald Trump promised that if he was in charge, any such action would end in this great land. How about allowing Donald Trump to handle this act of terrorism and blast these guys to hell! NO terrorist should be allowed to control any piece of our precious American soil!

Just imagine if this group consisted of Mexican illegal immigrants!

Red Carpet To Poor?

As you recall, General Sisi of Egypt is one of the good guys in the Middle East. He took over from General Mubarak who took over from General Sadat who took over from General Nasser who took over from General Naguib. In other words, for the past seventy years one general or another has been running the nation of Egypt. The result is obvious, an unemployment rate of over 40% and lots of bad radical guys dying to die for their cause. Yes, Egypt did participate in the Arab spring, and that lasted about one year until another general took charge who sent  the prior general into a nice retirement.

General Sisi decided to visit some poor people. Naturally, being a GENERAL meant he had to have a Red Carpet treatment. When an Egyptian general wants a red carpet treatment he MEANS red carpet. So, a 2.5 mile red carpet was laid in order to allow him to be in contact with poor folks. I guess he figured if poor people saw a red carpet it would make their lives happier.

It’s Me, Not You!

Marco Rubio informed his followers that “I did not do well tonight.  It’s not on you, it’s  all on me. And, I promise you that I will do better in the future.”

After leaving the hall, Marco was involved in an automobile accident. He jumped from the car, ran to the other driver and said: “I did not do well tonight, it’s not on you, it’s all my fault. I promise the next time I hit a car I will do better than damaging a headlight. Just watch me.”

Marco then went home and in the middle of the night he awoke his wife. “I did not do well tonight. It’s not on you, honey, it’s all on me. I promise to do better from now on. And, when I say that I will come, I damn well will come!”

The Poles Are Coming

Thee is some good news from Europe and some bad news for any member of ISIS or any other of those so-called terrorist groups in the Middle East. The Polish government has now made clear that Polish soldiers will soon be battling in the Middle East and when a Polack grabs  a gun, just watch out if you are a terrorist. As someone who is half-Polish, let me inform any Muslim who tries to take out we Poles, that you are signing your death warrant!

We Poles worked in coal mines, we worked in steel plants, we took any dirty, filthy job in order to put food on the table. Check out any famous American gang and you will discover some Polish names. And, you ISIS jerks, just remember that we Poles fight to win, and the only rule we follow is there are no rules– just victory!  You  ISIS jerks have been warned!

Chris Calls In The Godfather

Chris Christie has decided to forgo any further trips out of the great state of New Joisey and will get back to the world of common sense and decency. His first call was to the Godfather who wanted to know how come a good New Joisey boy was beaten up by a bunch of pansies from the other side of the track. He did give Chris a hug  for putting down the little queer from Florida who can’t utter a single fucking sentence without repeating the previous sentence.

Chris assured the boys  that New Joisey  is not to be concerned about the bull shit  coming from the clown of Wall Street, one Donald Trump. “He’s full of hot air, he promises the moon and can’t even deliver Hoboken! Godfather, don’t spend a moment concerned about this bull shit artist, hell, he couldn’t even keep the casinos making money!”

There are reports that Chris will now work on closing down the George Washington Bridge and restricting who is allowed to enter the great state of New Joisey.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I continue seeking to find where America has gone since politicians want to return America to its former greatness.

Jeb looked as though he had some passion last night.  Gee, he got 10% of the vote!

2016 rule of politics– the greater the ambiguity of your goal the greater the number of people who will love you.

Those under the age of 30 still believe in the Tooth Fairy.

One must feel sorry for little Benny Carson who looks as though he just lost his toy.

Marco comes across as a son of Donald Trump now out of favor with dad.

Oh, for an Elizabeth Warren to seek the Democratic nomination.

What Can Hillary Do?

To the right of Hillary Clinton looms the bombastic Donald Trump with his grandiose ideas about “making America great again,” and to the left is Bernie Sanders with  his grandiose ideas on how to make America great again for all those not in the top one percent of this nation. Hillary is trapped in the middle and now discovers that a large percent of Americans actually believe that words spoken are the same as  laws passed. So, what must she do?

1. Insist that Sanders explain HOW he would be able to pass his ideas into law.

2. Speak in specificity. Example, “I seek over a five year period to implement a $18 dollar an hour wage for all Americans. Why? We need to gain more seats in Congress this year and even more in 2018.”

3. She can also promise: “I will reduce interest rates on student loans to 2%.”

4. She can also promise to “work with any governor over the next four years to assist in any way reduction in tuition for college.” This change can begin on the state level.

Above all, she must constantly challenge Bernie to spell out how his ideas get through a Republican controlled Congress.
