Apartheid In Israel

I have repeatedly been told by those who support the state of Israel that under no conditions can I ever employ the word, APARTHEID, when referring to conditions in the democratic nation of Israel. OK, so it is OK to take over land owned by Muslims in order to deal with issues of SECURITY, but for some strange reason when taking over such land, the owners are invariably Muslim Palestinians. Anyway, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, based upon the need for NATIONAL SECURITY, proposed a new law that would ban Palestinians workers in the occupied (oops, I mean West Bank) areas of the West Bank from riding on buses along with Jews. Always remember that one must definitely make clear that Israel is a “democratic nation” and thus, by definition, democratic nations can never discriminate against certain people within its borders.

Oh, South Africa was a “democratic” nation when it imposed Apartheid in 1953 in order to prevent THOSE PEOPLE from being in body contact with OUR PEOPLE. Isaac Herzog of the Zionist Union, denounced the Netanyahu plan by saying, “this is how apartheid looks.” I assume he will be termed another person who “hates Israel” and hates Jews. Anyway, Netanyahu finally backed down and rescinded the law.

I wonder if those Jews in America who hated apartheid would have supported this version of apartheid?

On The Death Penalty

I confess the issue of a death penalty has always resulted in confusion about the issue. There are moments when I urged killing the terrible murderer, and there are moments when I do not believe we should kill, OK, we never employ the word, “murder” the person who had murdered. The European Union has abolished the death penalty, but in Hungary, its right wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban is urging return of the death penalty to Hungary. I doubt if murder is among the key issues in that land, but it is clear that hating Romas, who all too often wind up being convicted of crimes such as murder, IS an issue for him. According to Orban when speaking about the ban on the death penalty: “not everything is inscribed in stone. These rules are created by men and can therefore be changed by men. This is freedom, this is democracy.”

OK, a law can be changed. But, what have we learned about the death penalty. We know those who wind up on Death Row are from poor people. Not a single person in America who was executed for a crime during the twentieth century was a millionaire. Heck, it is doubtful if anyone could be termed to have come from the upper level of the middle class. Reality is that anyone who winds up dead for a crime was a poor person. That point alone, forces me to oppose the death penalty.

New Hillary Clinton

All signs point to the emergence of a new Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail. Heck, she is spending time in diners talking with folks in her own folksy manner. So, what can we expect from the new Hillary Clinton?

1. She will make economic inequality the center of her campaign.

2. She will blast away at the economic leaders of Wall Street and become the anti-corporate figure in the election.

3. She will be constantly discussing women rights.

4. She will be advocating paid maternity leave for women-and men.

5. She will be fighting for low cost day care.

6. She will come out for one form or another of reducing student loans. Expect some dramatic idea on this issue.

7. She will be arguing for nonpartisan congressional district decisions.

This is the new Hillary Clinton, the woman of the people and for the people!

Bad Time In Iraq

Day after day, month after month, the same old story emerges from Iraq. The so-called, “Iraq army” sits tight in its defensive position awaiting an attack from ISIS forces. At some point, ISIS soldiers initiate an attack, and within a few hours the so-called Iraq army abandons its positions and heads away, far away from the field of battle. Oh, as they depart, not a single one even thinks about destroying weapons or tanks or artillery pieces since the so-called Iraq army is not really an army as much as a collection of men who put on a uniform in order to get paid, that is, if their corrupt officers ever get around to paying those who are supposed to be fighting. The so-called Iraq army lacks faith, not only in its leaders, but in the very concept of an Iraq nation. Show them an enemy, and they head in the opposite direction.

It is time for the United States to realize that from day one of the idiotic Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld invasion, no one in the American government has the faintest idea as to what are foreign policy goals. Until the United States decides what should be the goals of foreign policy, the end result will be the chaos of a so-called Iraq army.

1. It is time to realize that Iran and Turkey must play roles in establishing stability in the Middle East.

2. We must realize that Saudi Arabia can not be the center of our foreign policy–it lacks a modern armed force and is ruled by religious fanatics. It is time to make clear to Saudi Arabia that if it continues financing religious fanatics, then they are on their own.

Story Of Mysterious Plane

x37B There is no doubt that a mysterious plane is being sent into space. We can now reveal the secret about this so-called X-37B plane. The government is telling people that it is “an electric propulsion device that produces thrust by ionizing and accelerating a noble gas, usually xenon.” Well, that is the “official”explanation, but this correspondent knows what this story is all about.

1. Barack Obama did not come from Kenya, as Republicans claim. He was born and raised on the planet of Xul.

2. Note that Obama has no loyalty to the American people, let alone to those on this planet.

3. He is an advanced agent of Xulians and his one job in life is preparing the way for an alien invasion.

4. Has this man displayed any interest in the American people? Has this man done whatever he could do to destroy our nation?

The answers to these questions are: NO! The X-37B is being sent back to the planet Xul in order to bring scouts whose goal is preparing for the future invasion of planet Earth!! By the way,Xulians are black skinned life forms!

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

Today is Wednesday, so who is the latest Republican running for president?

Perhaps, we should organize a shooting match and the one who hits the most bulls eyes, gets the Republican nomination?

New qualification for public office in America-serve your nation in the armed forces?

Just think it is only about seventeen months to the vote for president, how much bull shit will be laid until that date?

If you are black and do not want to be shot by police, wear a Biker jacket.

I think God is on a vacation from this planet.

Oh well, Hillary has become one of the folks eating breakfast at the local diner.

US Lend Lease Program To ISIS

It is now clear how ISIS can obtain military equipment. All they have to do is wait around, defeat some members of the Iraq “armed forces” and they will be able to obtain gobs of military equipment from the United States of America. Maybe, there is some truth to Republican claims that President Obama is a secret Muslim. We now have definite proof that Obama has instituted a lend-lease program whose goal is provident ISIS with the latest US military equipment. During recent events–we can not describe them as fighting– Iraq soldiers threw away their weapons and headed toward Baghdad. Naturally, they left dozens of vehicles including tanks, personnel carriers and Humvees for ISIS. It is clear there is no operational strategy for Iraq armed forces other than hand over your weapons and equipment to the bad guys and run for your lives!

How about cutting out the middle men and simply ask ISIS what equipment they need, provide them with that equipment and make things easier. Oh, has anyone thought of informing Iraq forces that it is OK to destroy military equipment before you guys head for Baghdad??

Religious Rule In Israel

The American media is ready at the drop of a hat to describe religious fanatics in Muslim societies, but when it comes to Israel, any and all mention of religious fanatics escape the attention of American society. Has anyone ever heard a Republican, let alone a Democrat politician, ever rant and rave about religious abuse in the state of Israel? Religious leaders decide who can marry in Israel, they decide who is or is not a JEW!. Sorry, Reform Jews, you are not really Jews in their eyes. Religious leaders even decide who can pray at the Western Wall( in my childhood we term it the Wailing Wall). Women are forced to pray on their side of the partition while men are on the other side of the partition. Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation decide how Jewish women can or cannot pray. It is clear that women are on the other side of the partition.

Some males decided to pass Torah scrolls to the women which caused a conniption to the good Rabbi. Ms. Hoffman of the Women of the Wall makes clear: “Rabbi Rabinowitz treats the motel as it it belong to him and enforces ultra Orthodox customs. It is insulting to be treated like second rate citizens oft he holiest place to the Jewish people.”

So, what was that about those crazy Muslim religious fanatics??

Our Ally, Egypt!

Egypt is among the oldest allies of the United States of America. We have sent billions of dollars to this nation because its leaders are not religious fanatics. Oh, they are fanatics, but fanatics a much different way. Since General Sisi and his army took over the government from the incredibly incompetent President Morsi, the nation of Egypt has moved further and further into a land of military rule and power. Oh, under the previous General Mubarak, the military also enjoyed power, but at least there was a semblance of law and order and the right to express an opinion. At this moment, THOUSANDS of Egyptians are in prison on charges of supporting the Morsi government or supporting views that run contrary to those of General Sisi. A report by the International Federation of Human Rights provides abundant evidence of brutal treatment of prisoners. “Egyptian police, National Security, Intelligence officers abuse detainees with sexual violence, including rape, sexual assault, rape with physical objects, electrocution of genitalia,and blackmail.”

Egypt has presented the world with mass trials of 100 people which conclude with death sentences of all. Prior President Morsi has been sentenced to death. There is no question that Morsi was incompetent, t here is no question he wanted to impose religious rule. But,the alternative to what he desired is — DEMOCRACY! Not, Army rule and Army abuse!
