Send In The Swedish Police Force

Four Swedish cops were on vacation in the city of New York when they decided to attempt riding the subway. Suddenly, as they entered a subway car there witnessed a man who was assaulting a woman. No, they did not draw out their weapons of destruction, but they proceeded to subdue the homeless man who was being attacked. This incident raises some interesting questions. How come police from Sweden are being trained in the use of physical force to subdue potential criminals? NO, they did not have to shoot anyone. NO, they did not have to choke someone, they simply drew upon tested physical procedures that any police force in the world can –and should employ– when confronting a man who is a physical threat.

Note;

No use of firearms.

No choking the man until he was out of breath.

NO banging the head of the criminal into a wall.

Just good old fashioned physical control of a man who was seeking to be brutal.

Perhaps, the New York City Police Department can send its officers to Sweden to learn how to catch criminals without killing them!

Another Day Another Candidate

It is Monday in America and those seeking the nomination for the Republican party as the next president of the United States of America will have to get at the back of the line. As of this moment, we have in line:

Jeb Bush

Maroc Rubio

Rand Paul

Rick Santorum

Chris Christy

Rick Perry

Scott Walker

Of course, Donald Trump

Oh, and the governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder joined the Rick party and wants to announce that he definitely wants to become President of this land. Naturally, he made the announcement in Las Vega at a meeting called by the Republican Jewish coalition. I assume that Sheldon Adelson was there checking that no one used the expression, “occupied West Bank” instead of the Israel West Bank. No Republican wants to anger the man who will be offering a $100 million prize to the one who can suck the behinds of the Koch Brothers and Adelson.

Coyotes Roam Wall Street

I realize there is a popular conception that wolves inhabit the offices of Wall Street gouging on the hearts of innocent investors who actually believe the guy on the phone who guarantees there is a killing in your future that will make you a fortune. I am not familiar with the company of wolves, but I do know one thing for certain, there is a coyote who roams the Wall Street area in search of something to eat. I assume this coyote is another one of the moochers who seek to take from the wealthy and give to the bums who refuse to work for $8 an hour. The other day a coyote was captured in Battery Park at the end of Manhattan Island.

The head of Merchants River House Restaurant sent a message to any other coyotes in the area. His restaurant “only serves service animals who are allowed to dine with us.” I assume that if animals who prey on the unsuspected seek to dine they will be refused service. I assume that means few who work in Wall Street offices can dine in this restaurant.

Oh, if any of you coyotes want to receive service, then you had better quit fornicating as male with male!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the world from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 44 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I Republicans love anyone who is against poor people.

We have to find a word to replace Genocide so that Turks will be happy.

I wonder what will replace iPads in the future.

Most young Americans must be compelled to spend four hours a day in the sunshine.

Barack Obama is the best friend for Israel. He seeks peace.

There is no end to hatred in this world.

I wonder if God will ever return to this experiment.

Republicans For Christianity

A common theme among those seeking the Republican nomination for president is their commitment to the Christian religion. They insist that President Barack Obama is a secret Muslim or that he not only hates America but he hates Christianity. Republicans wrap themselves in the mantle of Christianity and proclaim that if elected they will defend Christians throughout the world. Let us examine the Republican party record in defending and protecting Christians in the Middle East.

1. When Republican President George Bush invaded the country of Iraq there were 800,000 Christians who could trace their ancestry back nearly 1800 years ago. Saddam Hussein was always protective of Christians because they wound up owing him for that protection and would not oppose him in power.

2. Along came the Americans. Now, there are about 250,000 Christians in Iraq. The rest have fled for their lives.

3. Why did they flee? George Bush installed people like Prime Minister Maliki who hated Christians and allowed Muslim fanatics to murder, harass and drive them from the country.

4. There are Christians in Syria and they are already gone or shortly will depart.

The Bush policies have been the greatest disaster for Christians in history.

So, Rand and Ted and Jeb sing out your love of Christianity. One more Republican president and there will not be a single Christian left in the Middle East!

On Solitary Confinement

At this very moment as I write these words thousands of men and even women are sitting in a cell in some jail alone. They have been placed in solitary confinement. The origin of this practice derives from 19th century prisons. The concept of solitary confinement was introduced in American jails as a means of aiding those who had committed a crime to repent and become a good Christian. Men were placed in a cell, provided with a Bible and made to read it over and over again. They were not allowed to have any contact with other prisoners and spent days, months, and years alone with their thoughts and the Bible in order to cleanse their minds of evil doing. In those days, this idea was considered to be an innovation and an example of modern thinking.

It is now 2015 and still we employ this horrific punishment for a reason. The reason, at this point, escapes me. It is cruel and unusual punishment whose end result is transforming people into psychological wrecks. The original purpose was to REFORM men, the modern concept is to destroy minds. There is no thought connected with solitary confinement that might result in aiding people who committed a crime to reflect and become a different person. They invariably wind up as mental wrecks. This in the year, 2015!

Oops, Putin Said A Bad Word!

Vladimir Putin has an ability to irritate one and all in this world. He is so confident that whatever he utters will be accepted in the Soviet Union, –oops, I meant, Russia, that he once again angered another government. He was attending a meeting in the nation of Armenia to remember the murder of 1.5 million Armenians residing in Turkey during World War I, when he referred to this disaster as a GENOCIDE. Naturally, the government of Turkey is upset because they prefer living in a world that never happened. Either the Armenians in Turkey killed themselves or they were collaborating with the invading Russian army, but somehow in some way about 1.5 million wound up dead. Actually, the American Ambassador Henry Morgenthau described the atrocities frankly and clearly to his government. Armenians were murdered and it is time for Turkey to recognize this sloughier and initiate an educational program that teaches the truth.

What happened a hundred years is not the fault of modern Turks anymore than the Holocaust is the fault of modern Germans or the massacre of Indians in the West is the fault of modern Americans. As a society we must accept the truth of what happened in the past and work to ensure it does not happen today.

American Heroes

As one who has taught the new generation of American youth it is never surprising to me how they display attitudes of contempt for those who fight for this nation. These young people much prefer the world of social media to the world that exists out of their home. Latest figures indicate the average American young person spends 90% of their time at home engaged with their iPad or some other piece of technology. Of course, when they go off to college and then spend time engaged in some form of disrespect to women or those who fight for their nation, it is never surprising about the outcome. A group of patriotic young men who belong to the University of Florida chapter of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity were having another of their joyous times on the beach at Panama City Beach resort when they spotted some disabled veterans.

So, what did these young heroes do? They stole their flags and urinated at them. Just another day in the lives of our young males in the year, 2015. A large percent of these young men lack any respect for anyone who serves the nation. Piss on these sad group of young men.

Politically Correct Indians

Among the most complex issues confronting the United States of America is the issue of Indians-Native Americans-Apaches. I have been frequently informed that employing the term, “Indian” is not politically correct and should say, “Native American. Of course, the word, “American” comes from the ITALIAN Amerigo Vespucci. Adam Sandler is making a film whose title is “The Ridiculous Six” and one scene depicts some Indians — or should I refer to them by their Italian name, Native Americans? They became upset and complained about, “the examples of disrespect included Native women names such as, Breaver’s Breath and No Bra, an actress playing an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe,and feathers improperly positioned on a teepee.”

I assume these ridiculous examples of life among the Apache are examples of being ridiculous, but then again, the name of the film is RIDICULOUS! Ah, the issues confronting the American people!
