NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If we are going to ban air flights from Africa, will we ban ships from Africa?

I miss picking up a library book and checking who last took it out.

I enjoy a coffee shop where they check if you need a refill.

I always sigh with relief reading when someone in their eighties has died.

I miss Saturday night when we got our copy of the Sunday comics.

Is there a food that is not included in fast food establishments?

Ah, for the days when a holiday resulted in a doubleheader for one price.

I wonder if an American president will have once served in the military?

I am a bigot, I prefer people who speak with enthusiasm about life.

Things Not Happening Today

There are things that will not occur in the United States of America today:

1. No black teen will be halted or shot.

2. Rick Perry utters an intelligent comment.

3. Stephen Colbert does a show without praising himself.

4. Barack Obama talks WITH people rather than to them.

5. John Boehner desires to pass a law that benefits poor people.

6. Congressmen play a game of softball together regardless of party affiliation.

7. Mitt Romney addresses a labor union meeting.

8. Pope Francis urges rights for women in Catholic Church.

9. It is proven that Mitch McConnell does have a backbone.

10. A Wall Street tycoon pays taxes at a higher rate than his secretary.

Bombs Away At Kobani

Air strikes continue on ISIS forces that are attacking the Kurdish city of Kobani. There is something ironic that over a decade after American forces invaded Iraq, American forces are still fighting in Iraq. Of course, once upon a time, the government of Turkey was our “ally,” but today the government of President Recep Erdogan is committed to the war against terrorists from Kurdistan whom he considers to be a greater threat than any ISIS force. Bombs fall on Kobani as Turkish tanks and troops watch the action from a mile away in Turkey. American and other coalition planes drop bombs, and seek to destroy ISIS through the air. Once again, Americans believe that bombs dropped from planes will “destroy the enemy.” Examine the facts of bombing from the air:

1. US and British air forces were daily sending 1,000 planes to bomb Germany. They destroyed vast sectors of cities, but up until thirty days before the end of World War II in Europe, the German army was still fighting against its enemies.

2. There is still criticism by many Jewish groups about the issue of bombing train tracks leading to death camps. At no time, until two months before the fighting ended in Europe did the German army fail to repair bombed train tracks within four days.

3. We bombed and bombed in Vietnam, and it was the bombers who finally left Vietnam.

We can bomb Kobani. However, unless either one of the following happens, it can not win the war: (1) troops on the ground arrive from coalition forces, (2) the Kurdish army is provided modern weapons and logistical support to take on ISIS. Do either one of these actions and ISIS will be destroyed. Bomb away all you want, it will not end ISIS!

So, Who Really Is Barack Obama??

I understand that most Liberals and Democrats deride Fox News and charge that it is being unfair to the current President of the United States of America. However, recent events prove conclusively that Fox News has been sounding an alarm about the dude from Africa which not only is true, but understates the case against Barack Obama. For years, Fox News has argued that Obama was not born in America, but in Africa. There is now evidence that Fox News was correct that Barack Obama was NOT born in America. However, I regret to inform the ever vigilant Fox News commentators, particularly those cute pert blond haired damsels, they got the story half right. Examine the following evidence:

1. A top secret spy plane landed at Vandenberg Air base in California.

2. The X-37B mini space shuttle has been hovering above our planet for 674 days.

3. I can now prove that within this space ship are those from the Planet XUL. Those from Planet Xul are dark skinned. They are married to dark skinned females. They only produce dark skinned female children for the simple reason that for every two births of female Xulians, one turns into a male.

4. Barack Obama was not born in Africa. He was born on X-37B. After gestation on the space ship he emerged as an Earth looking male.

To prove my point. Xulians are not impacted by Ebola. Barack Obama has this immunity. That is why he doesn’t care if Ebola spreads. It will not impact his own family.

Once again Fox News is the only outlet really telling the truth to Americans.

US Supreme Court Continues Assault On Americans!!

I am frequently told by young Americans that politics is filled with dishonest people so it makes no difference who is elected. Most of those under 35 are cynical and dislike any aspect of our political system. Just ask one of these Americans if there really is a difference as to who is elected to public office. Former President George Bush was barely elected, and he proceeded to stack the US Supreme Court with conservatives who believe their primary task in life is ensuring that our beloved 1% never are endangered by any action of government. George appointed Justice Roberts and Justice Alioto, and it is these men who are engaged in a war against democracy in America. The Supreme Court struck down a decision by a Judge who insisted the Texas voter ID law was unconstitutional. It requires an ID. OH, one can submit an ID for carrying a concealed weapon, but one cannot use an ID given to college students. Check that one out for “democracy.”

During the past presidential election over TWO HUNDRED MILLION VOTED. Yes, there were some invalid votes. This figure comes to FEWER THAN TWO HUNDRED. So, why the need for a voter ID? The answer is simple, to prevent poor people from voting, to prevent college students from voting. Our Supreme Court is controlled by those who oppose democracy in this nation. First, the majority claim that corporations are entitled to rights of PEOPLE, now they insist people cannot vote.

Any young person who refuses to vote on ground all politicians are crooks, is simply empowering the wealthy to become even more powerful.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Norway, Norway Post: “Bank Robbers On Run”

I lot more intelligent than being on a walk.

Sweden, Local: “Cashless Society In Sweden”

Does that mean everything is free??

UK, Guardian: “Monster Salmon Caught”

I am certain there are a hundred fisherman who claim it.

China Daily: “Kim Jong un Makes Appearance”

I guess he finally accepted the reality no NBA team would hire him.

India, India Times: “Cow Parade”

I give this story three moos.

Go On Attack, Never Stop!

The rise of Social Media has created a new phenomenon in our society. Yes, there have always been demagogues who attack leaders of groups, but their power was restricted to newspapers or magazines or books, hardly the source of a huge number of people. However, today, any ordinary person can transform self into a “hero” who is protecting American society agains this or that evil. On a minor level, one can make social media comments about a person you do not like. They respond, and soon others join in the conflict which in the past only included the people engaged in a conflict. Suddenly, hundreds, if not thousands, are commenting an vying to come across as significant participants in the debate. The Ebola story is simply another manifestation of how a problem has escalated into a national issue. Once again, as with climate change, those with knowledge, are cast aside because some jerk in North Dakota insists she really understands the spread of disease. Social Media has created the instant expert on any issue in life.

This process also can transform anyone into a victim. I decide to write something about Matt Damon. I simply make up an outrageous story about this actor, people respond, and I know for sure that hundreds will pick up my story as true and build on it. Within a few days, poor Matt is on the defense while his supporters now regard their hero as a victim of evil. This process goes on at the local level of young people in a school as well as public figures. Just say whatever comes into your mind, and within days you will have obtained a following of true believers.

Welcome to the world of social medcia!

Obama Waffles Again!

Once again it is clear that President Barack Obama has the backbone of a chocolate eclair. Just about every expert on how diseases spread is convinced that instituting a ban on travel in the modern age simply makes things worse. Reality: if someone in Liberia wants to come to America, all they have to do is take a plane to Algeria and fly from there. This is not rocket science. At this moment the American government can monitor everyone who comes from Liberia or any West African nation. Ban travel and these people will wind up coming from a dozen other nations. But, Fox News and Republicans are shouting the sky is falling, and Obama does not wish to be responsible for the sky falling. After all, we all know he was born in Africa, so now he must be on guard against Republicans who claim our society is confronting the “greatest threat to our survival that has occurred in our history?” Oh, that Hitler guy, how could you compare him with ONE person who is dead.

President Obama told reporters that he might reconsider the current policy which allows travel from West Africa. He did note that “experts in the field say it(instituting a ban) is less effective than the measures we are already considering.” Mr. President, how can you listen to “experts” when Fox News experts insist we need a ban?

How about a day of National Calm in America??

Let World Know, I’m A Jerk!

The American public becomes furious when ISIS or some other Middle Eastern conglomeration of nut cases displays their head cutting on video while men dance with glee. Where did these kooks ever get the idea of displaying their crimes on video? Obviously, this must have something to do with the Muslim religion. Let me explain the fascination with informing the world that I am number one kook in the world. Hardly a day goes by in America without a few hundred thousand videos of people performing acts of stupidity. Heck, former Congressman Anthony Weiner enjoyed showing the world his weiner. A few days ago in Christian County, Kentucky, two men along with two fifteen year old boys, sodomized a fifteen year old boy in his own home. Naturally, they had to depict their act on a video. How else could the police find them?

The Social Media has transformed normal people in voyeurs who devote their lives to showing off. So, if you are upset at the idiots in ISIS, just remember, they got the idea from we Americans and our obsession on displaying acts of stupidity!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If cops can go 90 miles an hour, why can’t I?

Dead deer in the road, I guess he was a leap too short.

In any roadside restaurant there must be a waitress named, Mabel.

I hate confronting a woman who is in charge when I have a complaint.

I await the appearance of humanoid robots, they will be programmed for politeness.

God must have been in a good mood the day he created watermelon.

As Big Al always said back in the Bronx, “yeh, you got a college degree, but you still need five cents to ride the subway!”

I so miss the songs and voice of Johnny Cash.

My theory of driving, arrive late, arrive alive.

In my Bronx childhood, rye breads were not sliced. That joy was allowed to those who purchased the rye bread.
