Putin Talks Of Peace

OK, the time has come to accept that Vladimir Putin has but one goal in mind-peace and prosperity for the people of Ukraine. Once again, in talks with French President Hollande and German Chancellor Merkel, the GREAt LEADER of the Russian people wanted all to understand that he has but one goal for Ukraine and that is peace and prosperity for all. So, what does Putin desire?

1. Ukraine government should lay down its arms to prove they want peace.

2. Ukraine government should give money to those living in eastern Ukraine.

3. Ukraine government should give political power to those living in eastern Ukraine.

Now, these are simply a demonstration the government of Ukraine really wants peace.

Sounds fair to me.

“Reform” A Word Shouted By All

There is one word that is shouted by any and all those engaged in the public arena–REFORM. If I want to change a school curriculum to ensure students learn about the beauty of Capitalism, just say, ‘REFORM.” If I seek to reduce Food Stamps for those in need, just argue this is a REFORM that will benefit them. If I want to make difficult the right to vote, make clear that you are simply engaged in a fight to REFORM voting procedures.

One constantly hears this word expressed when the topic of wha to to do with education is being discussed. REALITY: If Rip van Winkle awoke from his two hundred year sleep and entered a classroom all would be familiar–an adult in front of a blackboard, children copying what the adult says, and a test to repeat back what they heard.

REFORM of government is simply an expression to reduce services to those in need. It justifies less money for the poor,and fewer services for our veterans.

I DO long for the day when REFORM actually entails creating NEW approaches to dealing with our problems. Anyway, how about engaging in REFORM to rebuild our infrastructure?

Earl Holt Stands For Freedom

Frankly, until yesterday I had never heard of Mr. Earl Holt. He runs an organization that is named Council of Conservative Citizens. Any reader can readily grasp what he seeks to accomplish. Mr. Hold gives away some money, not a lot, five thousand here or five thousand there. He gave money to Rand Paul, to Rick Santorum,to Scott Walker, and naturally to Ted Cruz. I assume these Republicans were a bit upset to discover the money came from one who thinks Dyann Roof’s ideas represent the right thing to say.

OK, Mr. Holt now makes clear that he does not agree with murdering people. but he does want the world to know that the shootings “do not detract in the slightest from the legitimacy of some of the positions expressed by Dyann Roof.”

Gee, I wonder if Republicans would return money from the Koch Brothers if they agreed with Roof?

On Flags

There are moments in America when our supposed leaders become caught up in arguing about unimportant issues in order to ignore what is important. The issue of the hour in South Carolina has become that of the Confederate flag. Governor Niki Haley has announced that she now favors getting rid of this flag of infamy and thus things can get back to being OK in the state. Frankly, she will not suffer any political consequences for this act of bravery. She has now proved that she is on the side of the fight for equality in South Carolina.

1. She now does not have to address issues of police misbehavior to African Americans.

2. She can now ignore issues related to health care.

3. She can now ignore issues related to voting laws that impact the right of Blacks to vote.

Niki is now a hero who has done something. Something of scant importance to the lives of African Americans.

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 wonder if there is a large enough stage in America to handle the Republican clown act?

Dylann Roof is not an “abnormal” person, simply a more active Fox News viewer.

Some day Americans will wake up to realize — we in this land are ALL immigrants.

Jon Stewart must be rethinking the decision to end and miss the Clown action.

Each day another angry young man murders.

Republicans should admit that no one can trump Donald Trump in stupidity.

I wonder if I can join the Clown act?

Sing Dixie Forever!

There are still millions in southern regions of this land who continue to honor, respect, and love the gallant Confederate Army of the Civil War. Heck, there are Southern states which continue flying the banner of traitors and disloyal Americans. There is no doubt that Dylann Roof was a loyal son to the Confederacy who wore the flag of disloyalty with pride. He is still convinced that America would be a wonderful land if only the South had won, and those darkies will still working fields of cotton.

His Manifesto simply was still one more version of melancholy for the good old days of either slaver or segregation when a white man was able to protect his women against-THEM! No need to repeat his words of defiance as to why he had to shoot down innocent people–they were black, he was white,and they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Like so many in this land, South, West, East, Mr.Roof believes that black men spend their days attempting to figure out how to rape a mother, daughter or sister who is white.

Frankly, nothing new about Dylann. He simply represents what a few million people in this land desire -blacks back to being subordinate to them!

And always remember–they have God on their side!

World War II Lingers On

World War II has been over for seventy years but its legacy is still impacting millions of people in Asia. During WWII the Japanese Army murdered over five million people in countries such as China or Korea, but Japanese government for years have worked hard to deny anything bad occurred during the war. They continue insisting that Japan was defending herself agains the evil WEST which, unfortunately, led to some acts that everyone should forget.

1. The Japanese Army forced thousands of women to serve as prostitutes.

2. The Japanese Army raped thousands of women.

3. The Japanese Army forced millions to die of starvation.

But, these days, the nation of Japan continues refusing to confront these horrors of war. It glorifies those who did the killing and will not accept any responsibility. South Korea still has problems dealing with a Japan that will not apologize for past cruelties.

The United States Senate in the 1980s apologized to those of Japanese-American ancestry for the horrible internment of over 100,000 innocent people. Japan might learn a lesson, the act of apology is a wonderful feeling of self worth.

Things Not To Say About Israel

There are certain things that must never be expressed when discussing the nation of Israel. OH,it is OK to express joy and support for its government, but dare to mention any mistake leads to but one conclusion– the comment must and will be classified as an example of ANTI-SEMITISM! A UN report on last year’s Israel invasion of Gaza has sent Israel, and its supporters of the Israel government in America,into a fury of anger. The UN report simply noted that during that invasion, 2,256 humans died.It argued that figure included 1,563 civilians. Naturally, this figure must be wrong, for how could innocent civilians be killed during a war?

Netanyahu supporters in America, they are NOT Israel supporters, rush to the defense of Bibi. They argue that Israel is always cited by the UN Human Rights Council for killing the innocent, while other nations that murder are not. This is correct. There is no doubt that Israel is being singled out. BUT, there is another truth–the Israel Defense Force DID kill civilians. Face up to that fact and demonstrate to Sudan or Zimbabwe, Myanmar, or other nations that kill, at least one nation is ready to confront its errors.

Putin Don’t Like Foreign “Agents”

Vladimir Putin was raised in the good old Soviet Union and he fondly remembers when the government send millions to gulags and other such places for daring to utter a single word of disapproval for what the government does or is. If one is not a 100% true blooded Russian who, not only loves his nation, but loves those who run the nation, then times are getting bad. He has a desire, no a need, to be in charge and any indication there are “rats” around who dare to squeak their ideas means that something must be done to restore quiet.

The Dynasty Foundation in Russia is engaged in activities such as fostering scientific research or aiding those in economic need. It has no political agenda, but it is not run by the government.So, Putin has decided to clarify this harmless agency as a “foreign agent.” After all, aiding Russian schools or institutions to further scientific research is a danger to the very existence of the Russian state. To sum up, it is now clear this Foundation is out of business and will close its doors. Watch out for “scientific research” because who knows what such a process will uncover!

Refugees Continue Walking And Sailing

There are those who continually complain about the massive numbers of refugees who are seeking new homes in more economically advanced nations. People like Dylann Roof believe that the United States of America is being overwhelmed by the hordes of people heading for our shores. Europe believe their very existence is threatened by African or Muslim “invaders” seeking to “take over their nations.” A brief examination of history makes clear this is not the first such “invasion,” and those of the past were much more severe.

1. Thousands of years ago Neanderthals were invaded by Cro-Magnons who soon took over their lands and sent them into extinction.

2. Invaders from England and other European nations not only invaded the New World, but wiped out untold millions in the process.

3. MY parents were among the horde of dirty, poor, desperate invaders who came to America seeking a new life. Between 1890-1925 about TWENTY FIVE MILLION IMMIGRANTS FROM EUROPE arrived in America. Just about everything being said concerning Africans or Muslims was said about this group.

Newcomers have been wandering from one place to another for about 50,000 years, Calm down, one day the newcomers will be the oldcomers and saying the same things about the newcomers!
