Dark Clouds Over US-Russian Relations

The Russian government is upset because American diplomats are concerned at the growing tendency in Russia for those who oppose the rule of Putin to wind up in some garbage bin or in a cemetery plot. Secretary Hillary Clinton imposed a ban on any Russian official who was connected to the mysterious death of Sergei Magnitsky who fought for human rights only to wind up in prison where he died of “natural causes.” It is clear that Magnitsky was tortured and denied access to needed medicine. Russia’s Foreign Ministry, suddenly got religion and demanded an end to the ban since none of the accused was ever convicted in court of having anything to do with the death of Magnitsky. They threatened retaliation. “We won’t let such hostile step;s happen without a response and will take adequate measures to protect our country’s sovereignty and our citizens from such actions.”

Let me get this straight. Magnitsky entered the prison while still alive and exited as a corpse. We can assume someone did something to transform the life of a living person into a dead one. Guess who?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

WE offer observations on the human condition from a 20 year old mind trapped in an 80 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think I am, I fail to plan, I am not.

My immigrant parents never went to school. But, the school of life taught them not to vote for people who hate.

If one loves America, one makes certain wealthy people pay their fair share of taxes.

Youth shares bullshit on Facebook while being shit on by political leaders.

One sees what he wants to see.

Michele Bachmann has migraine headaches. What the heck do you think God gets when she talks with him?

Today, Lincoln would say that America is a nation, of the wealthy, for the wealthy, and governed by the wealthy.

On Being A Lecher

I confess to not always being the most faithful husbands when married along the way of having three wives, but the actions of Arnold Schwarzenegger are shocking. I am not a prude. If a man comes across a gorgeous woman who is interesting, witty, makes you smile and brings joy and beauty into life, it is understandable why the eye roams a bit astray. I agree that housekeepers and maids and cooks can be a terrific sexual allure, but, Arnie, please explain what attracted you to Mildred Patricia Baena? It is one thing to risk for Kate Upton, it is another to risk for Mildred Baena. I willingly admit to being a beauty bigot. I admire gorgeous interesting women. I once interviewed 35 Playboy Bunnies and drooled throughout the process, but, alas none of my dreams came true.

Dominique Strauss Kahn bewilders me. He claims that on a good day, at least one woman seduced is par for the course, and it is not unusual for make it a pair. So, a maid entered his room, Ms. Nafissatou Diallo has an interesting face and a nice proportioned body, but she definitely will not make the cover of any glamor magazine. According to her account, DSK lunged at her, and was wild with sexual fury. DSK, according to his wife, makes out with many women she knows, and many are quite attractive. So, why the maid?

Arnie, you may be a terminator, but you sure are not a man who has an eye for beauty. I apologize to Ms. Baena for not grasping what she possessed to turn the head of a man who has a gorgeous fascinating wife in order to have a dalliance with you. You must have something, but it is not immediately discernible to the lecherous eye.

Beohner Bullied By Tea Party Crazies!

The scene, a meeting of Republican leaders in the House of Representatives. They are discussing the debt ceiling problem. House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, showed the group an excerpt from the film, “The Town,” in which bank robber Ben Affleck urges his fellow thieves to participate in a violent revenge attack. Huh? Affleck is bewildered why Republican leaders would be showing colleagues films about a revenge attack. Gee, guess who is THEIR ENEMY and who would they like to ATTACK? Rep. Boehner is surrounded by howling mobs of Tea Party supporters who believe Barack Obama is not really from Africa so much as he is one of the Redcoats come to force them to drink tea! America is on the brink of defaulting on its debts, and these children are watching gangster films!

Perhaps, the American people who voted for the crazies need a dose of reality. Let’s default and see what happens to their interest rates. The lunatics are in control of the asylum!

Who Is A Self-Hating Jew?

Richard Falk, former Princeton University professor, and now UN special rapporteur for Palestinian territories continually is charged with being a “self hating Jew” because of his stand in defense of Palestinian rights. I have also encountered this charge of being a “self hating Jew” due to my defense of Palestinian rights or the rights of any oppressed people. I find the comment ironic. Historically, to be a Jew was to be someone who stood up for human rights. To be a Jew was to take a stand against fascism and totalitarian dictators. I was raised in an East European Socialist neighborhood in which we were expected, BECAUSE WE WERE JEWS to defend the rights of Negroes and Puerto Ricans who were being brutalized by society. The “self hating Jews” of my youth were wealthy Jews who ignored the plight of those being persecuted because they wanted to fit into the power structure of a White Anglo Saxon Protestant(WASP) society!

People like Richard Falk ARE Jews. Their detractors who support brutality and hatred are “SELF HATING JEWS!” If a single Palestinian, if a single Jew is confronting hatred and discrimination then it is my responsibility AS A JEW to defend their rights. The self hating Jews are those in charge of the Israel government. They wouldn’t know what a real Jew was like if they met one!

Sarah Palin Offers New Vision For America!

I realize there are liberals who mock the ideas of great Americans like Sarah Palin, but what else can one expect from fuzzy eyed Marxists who seek to destroy our wonderful Christian nation–oops, we also have some of the Jewish persuasion. Former Governor Palin(just remember, Barack Obama was NEVER a governor) offered her vision to the American people:

“We don’t need a fundamental transformation of America. We need a restoration of all that is strong and free. The 2012 election will be a great debate between these two conflicting visions for our country.” I mean, talk about a specific plan for dealing with our nation’s problems! Wow! Sarah Palin offered solutions to all problems. For example:

Debt Ceiling: Solved. Just have everyone come together in believing we need a strong and free America!

Medicare and Social Security: Sarah is for them. Problem solved.

Job Creation: She is for jobs. Just the expression of her desire for more jobs will result in millions of new jobs in the coming years.

Barack Obama is for everything the opposite of Sarah Palin. I trust everyone reading this now understands why Sarah Palin is the only political leader who has a vision.

ON POVERTY

Comments on Poverty.

1. It is one thing to be born in poverty, another to have poverty of the soul.

2. Poverty changes people. For some it leads to anger and hate. For others a desire to end poverty.

3. In youth, I saw men building bridges, schools, roads. Today, most men and women would be happy to dig a ditch.

4. Night in a poor neighborhood is filled with sounds of angry fear.

5. Barack Obama worked with poor people in younger days. Today, he does not work for them.

6. For some in 2011, ONLY having a million is a sign of poverty.

7. Poor people today lack an Eleanor Roosevelt. When the King and Queen of England came visiting, she served them franks and beans out of respect for the poor of America who did not even have franks and beans.

8. Cutting government ensures there will be more poverty.

9. To be poor and without hope is to ensure one will be poor.

10. To love America is to ensure no American goes hungry today.

Chew On This Story

Riots are sweeping through the Middle East, oil prices are rising, Gaddafi is killing hundreds of his own people, but a mayor in Turkey has identified the most important issue that confronts his nation–chewing gum! The mayor of Ankara was furious when President Sarkozy arrived in Turkey and walked down the stairs of his plane chewing gum! Mayor Melih Gokcek, gazed at the French president and was furious. “Sarkozy came down the steps of the plane chewing a wad of gum. He stopped for a moment, looked around, and continued to chew… I personally was offended. Previously, he showed similar disrespect to our President Gul in France.”

So what did Gokcek do when he saw President Sarkozy off? “I took out the chewing gum from my mouth.” Now, that is the way to handle these damn Frenchies who come visiting. I assume we can term the visit a chewless one.

HEADLINES FROM THE WORLD PRESS

EAch day we offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

UK, Independent: “Whatever happened to the class of 95?”
You can find them down at the unemployment office.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Baboons Go On Run”
So, that’s where the Republicans are running to.

Australia, Brisbane Times; “Horn Accident Clears Highway”
This is one story in which there is nothing to toot about.

New Zealand, New Zealand Star: “Swim Star Divorces Parents”
And, made a big splash in the media.

Sweden, The Local: “Troops Prefer Pea Soup Dinner”
This doesn’t sound like the US Marine dinner.

South Africa, Argus: “Sayings of President Maleme”
They must begin with, “I am the boss,”

Finland, Sanomat: “Russia Leads World In Billionaires”
they also lead the world in corruption.

Bill O’Reilly Is A Schmuck!

Bill O’Reilly is upset because the media refers to Norwegian mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik as a “Christian.” According to Mr. O’Reilly, “No one believing in Jesus Christ commits mass murder. The man may have called himself a Christian on the net, but he is certainly not of that faith.” Gee, I think Mr.O’Reilly is a bit confused:

1. Spanish and Portuguese conquerers in the Western Hemisphere spread the word of Jesus Christ and in that process, killed about 30,000,000 people. If Mr. O’Reilly doubts the existence of this mass slaughter of the innocent, I refer him to the words of 16th century, Father Bartholomew de Las Casas, who told the King of Spain his forces were engaged in mass murder.

2. Mr. O’Reilly, I believe leaders of Nazi Germany were CHRISTIANS. As far as I know, Hitler was born a Christian and died a Christian. Benito Mussolini, dictator of Fascist Italy, signed a concordat with the Pope.

3. Collaborators with the Nazi death plan included Christian leaders in France, Hungary, Rumania, etc…

Bill is upset and charges the “left wants you to believe that fundamentalist Christians area threat just like crazy jihadists” H eis convinced the media “doesn’t like Christians very much.”

For some reason, fundamentalist Christians and their supporters believe it is OK to brand ALL MUSLIMS AS TERRORISTS due to the actions of a few. But, when CHRISTIANS murder, it simply means Anders was not a Christian. ANDERS WAS A MUSLIM!
