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

New McDonalds, same old people.

In every end is a new beginning.

There are wars of necessity and wars of choice.

We fight terrorists and they fight us.

To understand one’s strengths is to understand one’s weaknesses.

For many, there is the slavery of the mind.

We all too often forget the importance of love.

Once I was poor, today I am not. Never forget who I once was.

There are days when I wish that I didn’t wish.

For some, their gun is their penis in action.

Never underestimate the importance of a free mind.

Clueless In Middle East

There is no question that President Barack Obama is rather upset about events in the Middle East. No, he is not angry at ISIS or terror groups as much as furious at refusal of Sunni leaders in the region to take a stand against terrorism. Leaders in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, Jordan, Turkey, and a few minor places refuse to address the issue of terrorism in the region other than to demand that America do something about it. Oh, President Obama did get Saudi Arabia to send some planes to drop bombs. He did get a few Jordanian planes in the air and Egypt has promised their planes will shortly be in the air dropping bombs. Of course, this will come as a welcome relief to Egyptians since their armed forces ordinarily point weapons at them. So, the United States of America has compelled some Middle Eastern Sunni leaders to drop bombs.

The real issue is “troops on the ground.” Sorry, dropping bombs on ISIS or any terror group will result in some moments of terror, but within an hour they are all back to normal and will chop off some more heads. Only TROOPS ON THE GROUND will end terrorism in the Middle East. Of course, in addition to troops, there is need for economic reform to create jobs. Sorry, Republicans, President Obama is not at fault, how about directing your anger toward Sunni Middle Eastern leaders??

Americans Believe Republicans Fight Terrorism!

Among the most incompetent of President Obama’s failures in leadership is his inability to make clear the origin of groups like ISIS. Perhaps, he might speak about the following:

1. In 2001, al-Qaeda consisted of about 5,000 followers. Today, in the thousands.

2. In 2001, Iran had two powerful enemies on its borders-Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to President Bush, enemies of Iran were destroyed.

3. It was the war in Iraq which created terrorist groups. This was the legacy left to the next president.

4. It was President Bush who arranged for American troops to leave Iraq in 2011.

The Bush blunders created havoc and chaos in the Middle East. NO president could have eradicated what was the Bush legacy unless he simply packed up our troops and left!

REPUBLICANS CREATED THE CURRENT CHAOTIC SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST!!

Economics 101 In Middle East

President Obama is organizing a coalition of death and destruction which will blast bad terrorists to bits. Planes and missiles from the US, France, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and a few other Arab states have sent planes, drones, and missiles hurtling toward ISIS positions in Iraq and Syria. I assume this assault actually killed some of the bad guys. But, the entire premise of the Obama Doctrine is that the best way to solve problems in the Middle East is to blast away. How about a reality check:

1. The unemployment rate in most Middle Eastern countries(aside from Israel) hovers about 35% at a minimum.

2. This means that millions of young men and women have no jobs, no income,and live by part time work or aid from parents.

3. This means there are hundreds of young boys willing to blast themselves to pieces since life offers no economic solutions.

4. This means angry imams can rouse anger within young people who have nothing in life and offer them something in the after life.

There is need for an ECONOMIC PLAN that provides jobs and meaningful lives to the young people of the Middle East. How about engaging them in work rather than become engaged in death? Where is the Obama Doctrine of Economic Development??

Terrorist Group Of The Week

Growing up there were several ice cream chains that advertised a “flavor of the week.” These days it is now common for the American government to advertise a terrorist group of the week. For years all we heard was that al-Qaeda was plotting further attacks upon the United States and we had to be prepared for an eventual assault. Well, the years went by, a decade went by, and no al-Qaeda attack. For the past few months the new terror group is ISIS which, allegedly, poses a threat to the very existence of the United States of America. I continually hear on television from those who are experts in terrorism that ISIS is right at this moment preparing an attack on America that will result in widespread destruction and the death of millions. Exactly how 31,000 guys who wear dark masks over their faces are going to descend upon Americans and run wild through our streets wrecking havoc and mayhem is a tale yet to be told.

Oops, the American government just announced the new terror group of the week. Its name is Knorasan, and it is composed of Muslim terrorists who had fought in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This group, whose numbers range from about fifty to a few thousand is preparing special explosives which will blast planes from the sky. How about?

1. Draw upon the Israel method of checking passengers. Their approach has worked for nearly forty years. Try it out.

Protests Gone Wild

It is a given that Michael Brown was deliberately shot by policeman Darren Wilson. OK, it is understandable that ordinary people exploded in anger. OK, it is obvious this event was merely the culmination of dozens of such incidents that entail harassment of people who simply are trying to live in a work without violence and chaos. Yesterday in Ferguson, Missouri someone or some people burned a makeshift memorial to Michael Brown which resulted in further demonstrations of anger. Perhaps, this is not politically correct, but there is the possibility some people anxious to use demonstrations and violence to cover up their criminal intentions burned the memorial. OK, so I assume the Ferguson police may be racists, but are they that stupid is the question? I have a hunch they are not that dumb, although there are moments when one wonders if Ferguson police have any sense of reality?

The time for protests in Ferguson is over. It is now time to build, to construct, to create a viable successful community. Further demonstrations no longer serve any purpose other than allowing criminals to succeed.

Solving Police Brutality

During the course of my life, I have taught courses in the history of crime, and many of my students were members of the police force. I respect cops. But, it is increasingly obvious that all too many police simply cannot shake from their minds, an attitude that wen one puts on the uniform, everyone had better get out of the way. Sandra Anezquito was in a park in Brooklyn along with her seventeen year old son and husband. She is pregnant, the belly clearly displays budding life. A cop spotted the boy with a knife on his belt and prepared for action. During this episode a cop grabbed the pregnant woman by the arm and flung her belly forward to the ground. Her husband was arrested. Let me get this clear, a seventeen year old boy was with mom and dad in a park, and had a knife on his belt, so this required police action. How about:

1. Approaching mom and dad in order to request them to have the boy remove the knife?

2. How about approaching the boy and quietly telling him to remove the knife?

3. How about shooting the boy in the leg so he falls to the ground rather than mom?

It is time for police to relax and try talk, not bullets!

People Make Decisions!

As one gazes around the world, one thing is very clear, decisions by people have caused problems, not ideology. Vladimir Putin has changed policies in Russia which resulted in death and destruction in Ukraine. Chinese leaders are responsible for persecution of those seeking to create a democracy in the land. Muslim clerics created terrorist groups by preaching words of hate and violence. Identify any problem in the world and it is clear that people made choices. Recep Erdogan, now President of Turkey, turned away from working toward creation of a democratic nation. Heck, former President Gul disagreed with Erdogan choices and now Turkey is moving away from democracy. Current leaders of Egypt had many choices to create a modern Egyptian nation, but refused. Instead of focusing upon economic development and freeing forces of economic changes, Egyptian leaders decided upon policy of terror.

Here in America, people like Ted Cruz or John Boehner, chose policies of obstruction and policies that protect the wealthy in order to create the current state of gridlock. The present mess in Washington has nothing to do with ideology, it is the result of individual choices. If people behave in stupid ways, don’t blame it on ideology, it is their decision to be a nut case who lacks any sense of intelligence! Blame it on individuals, not some ideology or religion!

Another Intruder On White House Grounds

After consulting with leading Republicans in Washington I can now report they have gathered sufficient evidence in order to impeach President Barack Obama. Omar J. Gonzalez, a former member of the US armed forces was arrested by the Secret Service for leaping over the fence surrounding the White House and heading for the front door. House Speaker John Boehner is very upset that American citizens are not allowed to enter the White House without being subjected to violence. Mr. Gonzalez is NOT an illegal immigrant, he is a former sergeant in the Army and has every right as a citizen in this nation to carry around 80-0 rounds of ammunition for his legal weapons of war. The President allowed this citizen of America to be brutally assaulted just because he was carrying a machete and two hatchets. Show me in the Constitution where it says I can’t carry machetes of hatchets? I dare you, or the President to show me why I cannot carry rounds of ammo. Just check the 2nd Amendment!

This man who simply was exercising his 2nd Amendment rights if now under arrest. First they came for Omar Gonzalez, then they came for a guy who is now in the forests of Pennsylvania because some cop got in the way of one of his bullets. This is part of the Obama plot to arrest those who stand for freedom of killing bad people,and we all know who is the number one bad guy in this nation! Just check with the NRFA!

Fuck It, I Quit!

In every generation there arises a moment when someone utters a statement on television that we all so desire to have uttered. Charlo Greene works for an Alaskan TV station, KTVA, and following a story about the Alaska Cannaebis Club, she blurted out, “And, as for this job, not that I have a choice, but, fuck it, “I quit.” It turns out she is the owner of the club and has been working for the right of people in Alaska to have access to the use of marijuana. She is particularly concerned about those seeking to use marijuana who are ill and believe it can reduce suffering. Ms. Greene has pledged to fight “for freedom and fairness which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.”

I await from Ted Cruz: “Fuck it, I am a schmuck even though I went to Harvard.”

Or, Mitch McConnell, “fuck it, I have no idea how to fire this damn rifle!”

How about Rick Perry on Rick Perry? “Fuck it, this dude is one big fuckup.”

As for Barack Obama: “Fuck it, why didn’t I listen to advisers and study how Franklin Roosevelt handled a Depression.”

Then again, there is always Sarah Palin: “Fuck it, there is nothing to the story that I will wed that bear!”
