HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Sydney Morning Herald:  ”Love Hates Guilt”

And, guilt loves to hate.

France, Connexion:  ”Fish Jump To Eat Bird”

Hopefully, if they are Catholic, not on Friday.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post:  ”Who is Eric Scavengus”

Then again, who cares?

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald:  ”Road Rage Man Seeks Job Back”

I assume he is a truck driver who hasn’t finished crashing into people.

Russia, Moscow Times:  ”Putin Unhappy With Limousine”

Aside from himself, who exactly is he happy with?

Indonesia, Jakarta Post:  ”Dummy Cop Stops Traffic”

Given how people drive in Indonesia, they might be a smart policy.

USA, NY Daily News:  ”Guns And Xmas”

Don’t shoot until you see the red of his jacket!

Pseudo Jews Banned From Banning!

It becomes increasingly clear there are people currently living in the state of Israel who pretend to be Jews, but, in reality,  represent the anti-Jew. The nation of Israel was created as one in which democratic principles would be the foundation of government. Over the past fifteen years some people in the Knesset who claim to be Jews have attempted to deny democratically elected  members to be a part of the governing body. Haneen Zoabi, an elected member of the Knesset was banned by fellow members from running for re-election because she participated in seeking to provide aid to Gaza residents. The boats which were part of the flotilla  were NOT carrying any weapons of war, but they were halted.

Fortunately, for the people of Israel, its Supreme Court continues to be filled with Jews who believe in democracy and they lifted the ban on Ms. Zoabi. The only violence was provided by pseudo Jews who yelled at her and forced a member of Parliament to run for her life.  Prejudice against those who disagree is the antithesis of what Jews have fought to create in this world.

We apologize to all Israel Arabs for the behavior of these individuals who certainly are not Jewish!

God Demands Death In Pakistan

The essential ingredient in any religion is a belief that God is God for all humanity, not for a particular group of humans. It would not make sense for there to be a  creator who then decides only specific individuals who He created are worthy of his love. There was a mentally disturbed individual in Pakistan who went to pray at a mosque. For some reason, during his prayers, this man decided to burn his copy of the Quran. He was arrested under blasphemy laws which cover just about anything or everything that some religious person decides is blasphemy.

The man was in the police station when a crowd of 200 angry men stormed the place, and proceeded to burn the man. They decided there loving God wanted him toasted for burning a Quran. Somehow, I have a hunch that God would never willingly and knowingly kill one of His people.

Rape In India-Again!!

India is the world’s largest democracies and it has witnessed during the past several decades a phenomenal growth in its economy. In many respects the nation now possesses a first class society in which a percent  of its population has access to modern ways of life. At the same time, along with these signs of economic and social development,  Indian society remains tied to a past in which males can brutalize females without worrying about punishment. Several days ago, once again, an Indian female was attacked by men who thought nothing wrong with assaulting a woman in broad daylight, raping her, and then throwing her body off a bus.

The 21 year old female was a college student who boarded what she thought was a public bus only to be met by six young thugs who performed the rape and sent her flying off the bus. This incident sparked an enormous protest by men and women who are tired of a society in which males are allowed to act in this manner and rarely are arrested. Finally, these men are going to be tried for murder since the young woman died. This must be the beginning of tough sentences and even death for any man who assaults a woman in India!

 

Sheriff Teacher In Action

Those who have served in the armed forces and have been engaged in combat know full well that at least 25% of men in a foxhole never use their weapons. A high percent of those engaged in fighting against an enemy simply freeze up  and are terrified. The state of Utah is providing training to teachers in how to fire a weapon in order to have those able to fire a gun ready to swing into action once a killer enters the school. Of course, arming teachers means that guns are now in a school. It means teachers, being human, might leave their gun in a place where students might gain access to them. It means a frightened teacher, if she ever used a gun, might fire it and wind up killing a child.

Just imagine, a frightened teacher with a gun, and a crazed student with a gun and they fire at one another. The end  result would be dead and wounded children and some would be murdered by a terrified teacher. Such are NRA follies!

Putin King Of Human Rights Abuses

Vladimir Putin is a very brave man, he goes off into the wilds of Russia, bare chested and ready to confront any animal who would dare to cross his path. He has been trained by the KGB to tie up opponents, beat and torture them, and inform the media that the person assaulted an unarmed interrogator and thus had to die-it was all self defense. Sergei Magnitsky was a Russian lawyer who uncovered a huge swindle by Russian officials that resulted in the theft of over $200 million. What else could an honest swindler do but beat the hell out of this man and send him to his death.

Vladimir Putin has high moral standards. If there is one thing he will not accept is for anyone to point the finger at a member of HIS government. After the US Congress passed a bill to restrict movement of those who killed Magnitsky what else could Putin do but sign  into law a bill that bans adoption of Russian children by American parents? There are over 700,000 children who are orphans and only 18,000 Russians who seek to adopt one.

Russian children will suffer due to the actions of Putin, but, he is the KING so one must accept his decisions. Oh, I forgot, Putin and his buddies charge that American parents want a child so they can cut him up and sell his body parts. Why else would someone seek a Russian child?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 22 year old mind trapped in an 82 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If we want to identify an enemy nation in the world, we can.

One can always argue three sides of the same issue.

There are always unanswered questions in life.

Crime is simply a human activity.

Too often we blunder without recognizing we blundered.

A tall blond haired woman always gets my attention.

Tiny girls clutch  jacket very tight.

I feel lost without my non-commercial Sirus radio.

College students prefer entertainment to knowledge.

The Beatles are now ancient history.

I get senior discount on Earth, is it available in Heaven?

Old lady alone at table gazing–into past?

I am never alone as long as my mind is with me.

If you serve an elderly person, please smile.

It has been a long time since a waitress said to me, “yo’all.”

French words still linger in my mind.

Sharia Marriage In Denmark

The Danish government is concerned about examples of forced marriages in which young Danish Muslim females are compelled to marry a man who was selected by their parents. New legislation will increase criminal punishments for any forced marriage, ban  those married under the Sharia law from utilizing the Danish divorce system and allows for the expulsion of imams who carry out such marriages.

A Danish citizen named “Sarah” revealed on TV that she had been taken to Morocco at age 15 and forced to marry her cousin. “My aunt told me that the guests would not go home until they saw blood on the sheets.” It is time the government took a strong stand in favor of Danish Muslim females.

Israel Agains Dooms Peace

The government of Israel continues to make impossible attainment of peace in the Middle East due to policies of hate and arrogance toward Palestinian people. It announced creation of a new university in the West Bank which will provide Jewish settlers a sense of permanency and control of land that does not  belong to the state of Israel. UK Foreign Minister Alistar Burt pointed out: “Ariel is beyond the Green Line in a settlement that is illegal according to international law.” For some reason the British government believes there is such a thing termed, “international law” when the Netanyahu government knows full well such talk is simply adopting “the contested Palestinian position hook, line, and sinker.”

There is only one solution to end the current impasse in the Middle East. It is time for the international community to impose the same sanctions upon Israel that have been imposed against Iran whose policies threaten peace in the region. The current Netanyahu government is composed of people who claim to be Jews, but they have no connection with historic Jewish values of social justice.

Blame It On The Gals!

Finally, a voice of reason is being heard in Italy. Finally, a man is willing to step up and make clear why there is violence against women. Finally, the truth is being spoken about sexual assaults and brutality against females. The fault lies not in actions of men, but in the actions of WOMEN! Italian priest Piero Corsi told members of his congregation the  blunt truth. “How often do we see girls and mature women going around scantily dressed in  provocative clothes? They provoke the worse instincts which end up in violence and sexual abuse. They should search their own  consciences and ask: did we bring this on ourselves?

I assume liberals and females lacking any sense of shame will be  angry toward a man of God who understands that when women are raped, the rapist should be praised for acting in a Christian manner in order to teach females something about good manners. As Piero pointed out to a reporter “what do you feel when you see a naked woman?”

Then again, how  many nuns these days are wearing traditional clothes? Are they attempting to provoke  priests like Corsi?
