Public Hatred OK

It has becomes an accepted idea in the Unites States of America as well as throughout the Western world that Muslims are terrorists who enjoy murdering the innocent. At this point in time, Americans fear for their lives at the prospect of ISIS coming to this nation and beheading all of us. Pamela Geller is a blogger who hates Muslims because they kill. She is a Jew who believes that Jews in the Middle East are confronted to the greatest threat in the history of Judaism. She has begun a campaign in New York City’s subways and buses to make clear to one and all that the Muslim religion is based on hatred. She has taken out ads that will soon appear in the Subway:
ISLAMIC JEW HATRED–IT’S IN THE QURAN

According to Ms. Geller the Muslim Holy Book contains passages about hating people.

Let me get this straight. The Jewish Old Testament and the Christian New Testament contain words of hate. Most religious books are filled with hatred toward “bad people.”

Oh, Ms. Geller, if you added up the number of Jews killed since the birth of Israel in 1948 that figure would not surpass the number of Jews murdered by Christian Germans on a single day of the Holocaust!

Muslims kill thousands, Christians killed millions. And, all killed because God was on their side!

Death Again By Guns

People died in a southern town, and they were not killed by any Muslim terrorist. A family is no more because a grandfather decided to take out his weapons of mass destruction and aim them at his daughter and her six children. Dan Spirit was apparently upset at something or somebody, and since he lives in the United States of America, there was always a handy gun ready to be fired. Mr.Spirit in 2003 was convicted of killing his 8 year old son during a hunting accident in 2001. Naturally, in America when someone kills another during a hunting accident, it is classified as an “accident.” The individual admits to being sorry, and goes back home. Just imagine if the individual shot someone during a robbery by “accident?” Head to prison for years because this individual was not on a hunting “trip.”

Dan Spirit shot six of his grandchildren and his daughter. They ranged in age from 10 months to ten years. He was still alive when the sheriff arrived. He mumbled some words about “injuring someone,” and then killed himself. We will never know why he murdered those he supposedly loved. But, we do know that someone who kills another during a “hunting trip” does not face punishment nor does he face the prospect of being denied access to weapons of death!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I have never used ketchup on any breakfast item.

I go crazy if anything gets stuck between my teeth.

America is at an impasse except for those on social networks. They babble along.

I allowed a car to cut in the line, and no arm waved indicating a thank you!

To accept life is not to approve life.

I doubt if there are tooth fairies in Heaven.

At 84, I wonder about my mind, it would certainly help those at 24 if they did some mind wondering!

Those raised on city streets “read people” when encountering a stranger.

Misread people can result in misread consequences.

Long time since I bossed anyone. No regrets.

I so miss Rick, Newt, Herman, Mitt and the gals!

Vladimir Is Upset!

Vladimir Putin is upset, and when the wise leader of Russia becomes agitated then we all should take another look at what we just did. After all, he is the guardian of Mother Russia, in fact, he is now Mother Russia. The European Union just reached a trade agreement with Ukraine which endeavored to stimulate trade and assist the nation in its efforts to become economically stable. For some strange reason, the European Union had this interesting idea that it could negotiate with Ukraine without consulting the man in the Kremlin! After all, He is The Man. So, his trade officials made clear to the European Union and Ukraine that further discussions between these two parties would have to be placed on hold until the legitimate desires of Mother Russia are met!

The Russian government insists the Russian”input” in this negotiation is vital in order to attain success. It wants “formulas to remove the concern of the Russian side.” I thought Ukraine was negotiating with the EU, so how come there is now a “Russian side?” Essentially, the Russian side demands that Ukraine trade with Russia based on conditions established by Russia.

By the way, what ever happened to the United States protecting the rights of free fade? Just asking.

Hey Mars, Here We Come!

The NASA space craft MAVEN will descend upon Mars some time this weekend. Its task is to check the Martian environment and atmosphere for any signs that at some point in the evolution of this planet that life existed. We Earth folk are interested in other planets because they just might possess the materials of life. Of course, this is important. After all, how certain are we that humans will be able to continue life on the planet named, Earth? Given our propensity for violence, death, destruction of one another, is there any guarantee that life will continue on this planet? I do understand that Captain Kirk and the Enterprise are voyaging among planets in the universe in order to decide which should join with Earth and create conditions for other Earth style planets.

Perhaps, the best thing we Earthians can do for Mars is to keep off their planet. Imagine the NRA on Mars? Can you just conceive a Ted Cruz and the Republican party in charge of an entire planet? On the other hand, since there currently are no life forms on Mars, how about sending this planet ISIS and other allied groups. They can enforce Sharia law, and live in a perfect old fashioned Muslim world without being pestered by all that modernity stuff! I say, MARS FOR ISIS! At least then they will be happy.

Great Australian Terror Raid

About 800 Australian policemen and women descended upon dozens of homes throughout the Sydney area in search of terrorists. Police had received reports that a terror group was preparing to seize innocent people, take them to a secure hideout, and then behead them on YouTube so the world could see what happens to those who defy ISIS and its Sharia dominated world. Many residents report hearing the sounds of police cars, shouts and warnings. Well, the Great Raid is over, 15 people have been arrested. Reporters noticed that 22 year old Omarjan Azari was sitting on a bench close to tears and mumbling his confusion as to how and why he was in the police station. He certainly did not resemble in any shape or form a man who could behead anyone. But, this trembling, crying young man is allegedly a potential murderer of the innocent.

Oh, nine people already have been released. Two or three were charged with possessing guns. Of course in America, that would be legal. Two women were told to report to for a court date. So much for the Great Australian Police Raid. Hysteria now reigns all over the world. Score another ISIS triumph of fear.

What A Wonderful Day

I awoke today, checked my newspapers, checked the Internet, and to my great surprise there was not a single example of some member of the National Football League or any member of a baseball team who slugged his girl friend, his fiancee, his wife or his mother. Wow! In fact, not an example of one of these tough guys who disciplined his child with a stick in order to teach the right way to behave. Something must be wrong today. After all, these guys are tough, they can endure pain, and they so enjoy inflicting pain. Of course, they are paid to inflict pain on other tough guys, not on women and children. I was raised in the slums of south Bronx in New York City at a time when poverty reigned the country. As a child, I was taught by older boys that, under no condition, should I strike a female or someone smaller than me.

That was the code of conduct of gangsters in my neighborhood. But, times have changed, and apparently so have tough guys. The old code of honor which prevented criminals from murdering women and children no longer exists. The evidence is clear, times have not gotten better-when it comes to abuse of women and children!

Another Death By American Society

I confess my confusion an ambiguity concerning the death penalty. It has never been clear in my mind as to whether or not society should kill a person. Lisa Coleman was put to death, naturally in the great state of Texas which, not only leads America in killing people, but leads the world. She was a horrible person who tortured and starved a nine year old boy. There simply are no redeeming aspects of her life. She was a brutal person who murdered an innocent child. My guts make me hate this creature. I seek revenge on her for the brutality, the murderous rage within her soul. I want to punish this creature. These are my feelings, these are my emotions. Kill the bitch!

On the other hand, my mind understands that killing a killer will not halt killing. My mind knows that violence begets violence. My mind knows there have been all too many examples of people being sent to their deaths based upon mistaken evidence. My mind knows that most civilized societies have ended the death sentence. Heck, our Supreme Court in the seventies declared the death sentence to be unconstitutional. I fear the use of a death sentence simply plays into the hands of NRA adherents who seek death to those who are “evil.” We kill, and NRA followers feel joy.

I have two opposing feelings. But, in the end, it is time to end killing.

Weapons Of Destruction For Schools

The Pentagon has become an important source of materials to assist in the education of children. It is now providing school districts with MRAP armored vehicles, grenade launchers and M16 rifles. The ostensible reason is providing schools with necessary weapons to use in case there is a shooting in the school. Throughout the history of school violence in the 20th century there is only ONE example of a school bombing. It happened in the 1920s when an adult became angry and blew up an elementary school. All other examples are of one or two boys securing guns, entering a school and shooting either children or teachers. This is a FACT, not an opinion.

So, how exactly does an armored vehicle fit into school bombings? Actually, we know the profile of school bombers.

1. They are white male teens living in a suburban or small town.

2. There is a history of bullying connected with the boys.

3. They are lonely and feel isolated.

There is not a single example of mass bombing in an urban school.

So, why the need for this useless equipment?
