Republican Strategy-Deny Voting!

The history of America contained the story of a never ceasing fight to empower people with the right to vote. It was not only women who were denied the right to vote, but millions of white men, and black men and women. In our history books we teach children that by 1920 all Americans over the age of 21 had the right to vote, and eventually all Americans over the age of 18 had that right. Fast forward to the 21st century, and now the right to vote is being denied millions. Our Conservative controlled Supreme Court has done all in its power to deny voting rights on grounds there is no threat to voting in states of this nation. Please explain how supposedly intelligent men(not a female on the Supreme Court believes this nonsense) ignore state laws that restrict voting to people? The current strategy of Republicans is to deny the right to vote by demanding IDs of voters. For over two hundred years we voted in America without any ID required. The ID requirement has nothing to do with voting, but it has a great deal to do with NOT voting!

In Florida, about 11 million will vote. About one million of those who should be voting will not vote because Republicans changed the law to deny the right to vote by anyone who has a felony in their record. One can be a businessman who tricks people into losing their money and still vote. But, get drunk and you lose that right. Where is the anger among those on Social media about this denial of the right to vote??

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.

Nothing Changes In Israel

The one constant in Israel is that nothing ever changes. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes that his policies toward Palestinians is the right one, and if he can continue the present course of action into the next century, then Israel will live in peace and security. Jewish settlers are moving into east Jerusalem which is causing anger, but Bibi insists that Jews have a right to live wherever they desire. Of course, similar rights do not belong to Palestinians. Yesterday, there were Palestinian demonstrations in the village of Beit Liqya. Boys and adults threw stones and Molotov cocktails, and the end result is no surprise. Israel soldiers returned these weapons with their own weapons and killed a thirteen year old boy. So, what next will occur? At some point, a Palestinian will kill (notice when Palestinians kill it is an act of “murder”) an innocent Israeli. What else could Netanyahu do but send the army into Gaza and blast away with the deaths of hundreds?

There is only ONE solution:

1. Israel must negotiate with the Palestinian Authority.

2. Israel must recognize that Hamas in the Palestinian Authority AIDS the cause of peace!

3. Settlements must end on the West Bank.

4. Israel must engage in economic talks with Palestinians in order to assist the development of its economy.

5. Get Palestinians working at meaningful jobs!

I realize for many Jews the state of Israel is always right. Sorry, a Jew must always be focused on social justice FOR ALL HUMANS!

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.

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.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Biden Says Erdogan Admits Mistakes”
“Biden Apologizes To Erdogan For Comment”

France, Connexion: “Rat Complaints”

We prefer Cheddar over Meunster!

UK< Guardian: “Campaign Targets Breast Cancer”

To get it or cure it is the question?

Norway,Norway Post: “Implant Bionic Eye”

I can see you wherever you go!

China, China Daily: “Kim Jong Un Makes Appearance”

I guess that means some generals will make a disappearance.

Court Aborts Abortion Bans

The state of Texas is more than a physical entity, it is also a state of mind. Governor Rick Perry, among the great thinkers in our society, believes the “greatest threats to America” are caused by bans on guns and women who insist on having an abortion. Texas has passed one law after another to impede the right of women to have an abortion. Thank God,the US Supreme Court placed a hold on the latest attack on women, the 2013 anti-which closed all but a few abortion clinics in Texas. The law requires doctors working in an abortion clinic to have access to a hospital. Of course, many hospitals fear being connected with abortion so they block doctors from gaining access to the hospital.

The new ruling will enable about 2o of the existing 30 odd abortion facilities to remain open. Texas has ben attempting an end run against the Roe decision which allows abortion,. The government of Texas simply blocks access to abortion facilities, as part of its plan to end abortion in the state. The most remarkable aspect of this endeavor is lack of anger on the part of women to have their rights taken away. Vote against Republicans to vote for women rights!

Republicans Want ISIS Strategy

Fox News and Republicans are up in arms because there are not enough arms up in action in Iraq. They blame Barack Obama for the rise of ISIS and want to know why this group of terrorists have yet to be defeated. Let’s examine the record:

1. In 2006, when George Bush was president, his administration backed Nouri al Maliki to become head of the Iraqi government.

2. Since he assumed office this crooked, corrupt man has driven out from any place of responsibility Sunni men as well as sending thousands to jail. Maliki believes Shiites must dominate all aspects of Iraqi society, and the result is that thousands of Sunnis welcomed the arrival of ISIS.

3. ISIS consists of about 25,000 soldiers. The Iraqi army, allegedly has 250,000 soldiers. Do the math.

4. President Obama offered to retain US military advisers in Iraq but Prime Minister Maliki insisted that Americans would be subject sharia law if accused of a crime. Imagine what Fox News and Republicans would have shouted if President Obama had agreed to that demand.

Turkey is our “ally.” As Turkish troops stand idle, ISIS is blasting away at the Kurdish city of Kobani. Oh, the Turkish military is doing something–it is attacking Kurds. So, let me get this straight: Kurds are fighting ISIS and Turkey is fighting soldiers who are fighting ISIS. Sorry, the blame for problems in the Middle East rests on heads of Muslims in the region.

‘Dr. Ryan On Climate Change

It has become a basic premise of any Republican politician to demonstrate a complete lack of knowledge concerning what is happening in America as well as the world. Representative Paul Ryan ran for the office of Vice President of the United States of America which, ordinarily, would result in a desire to a grasp concerning issues of world importance. But,he is a Republican who must adhere to ideas that make no scientific sense, and simply cast the individual as illiterate and ignorant. Ryan was engaged in a debate with a Democrat and was asked by a moderator to state his views on climate change. He insisted that since climate change had occurred throughout history, we should not blame people today for influencing our climate.

The moderator pushed the issue and noted that 97% of scientists believed human actions have influenced climate. Of course, Ryan replied, that was their view, and he disagreed with it. Again he was asked about climate change and insisted, “I don’t know” what has caused climate change. There is no doubt he earned an ‘A’ grade from the Tea Party. How can college educated people believe this nonsense? What has happened to education in America??

Israel, My Israel!

It may come as a shock to the Israel government, but the United States of America is the only nation that enjoys the advice of AIPAC in the process of governance. The Israel lobby is not welcomed in nations throughout the world. British MPs votes 247 to 2 in favor of recognizing the state of Palestine. Naturally, this resulted in expressions of doom and disaster from Israel officials. The Israel government denounced this vote as “undermining chances for peace.” According to Israel logic, if Palestine becomes a nation it somehow poses a threat to Israel. According to Israel, recognition by Sweden of the state of Palestine, “sends a troubling message to Palestinian leadership that they can evade the tough choices that both sides have to make.” Wow!

1. The government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to make the tough choice of putting on hold any further building of settlements.

2. The government of Netanyahu has refused to put on hold building homes in east Jerusalem where Muslims live.

3. Pray tell which “tough choice” the current Israel government has made in the cause of peace?

Among the issues that create anger in Israel is decisions by President Abbas to work with Hamas. His formation of a government with Hamas BENEFITS Israel. Once Hamas is in the government, they are bound to recognize the state of Israel. As former US President Lyndon Johnson used to say, better to have your enemies in your tent than outside causing problems. It is time for Israel to make some “tough choices.” If you doubt what I write, just check with John Kerry who tried so hard to get Israel to confront reality. In the end, Apartheid will end.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Humans so frequently refer to God’s Wrath, is it themselves who are filled with anger?

I wonder if celibacy arose because there is no Mrs. God?

At age 84, I so like the word, “rebirth.”

One does not gain wisdom from age, it comes from an inquiring mind.

People at computers reach point where they lean back and gaze.

Since computers think, do they ever think about other computers?

There are sounds from my youth which never again will be heard.

Two lonely iPads met for lunch.

There is no doubt one must speak exiting the coffee shop on that damn cell phone!

Tea Party folk hate God’s work-people– but insist they like God!
