Obama Shows Some Balls!

It is now clear that Barack Obama has interpreted the recent election as proof that most Americans favor his policies and they deliberately voted for Republicans in order to stir up the blood of Barack. First, he signed an historic environment deal with China, he is edging closer to an historic deal over nuclear weapons with Iran, and he may veto any bill that allows oil to flow from Canada. Of course, he has also made clear that he will protect Hispanic immigrants by allowing about five million to have temporary status in the US. So, what happened to the dude who fucked up health care, who was confused about handling Ebola and could not even protect the White House from lunatics? Let me explain:

1. Since Obama was born and bred in Africa he contacted a witch doctor who has granted him super natural powers.

2. The witch doctor has now placed a curse on Republicans, you will shortly see them collapse in hysteria.

3. Watch for the appearance in Iraq of a new super hero named, BO!

If I was Mitch McConnell or John Boehner, I would check anything I drink very carefully. And, above all do not gaze into the eyes of Obama!

Nigerian Troops Actually Kill A Bad Guy!

The armed forces of Nigeria are to fighting anyone with a gun as the Republican party is prepared to fight for the rights of poor people in this nation. Boko Haram forces once again took the town of Chibok from which they had kidnapped over 250 young girls, and in the process not a Nigerian soldier was in sight. Generals in the Nigerian army are engaged in only one fight –who gets the money that ordinarily would be spent on paying soldiers or purchasing modern military equipment. Nigeria is the land of kelptomania in which the military, the government, big business devote their days and nights robbing the people blind. Sorry, the old excuse about “imperialism” can not explain away how native people of Africa have repeatedly failed to create modern economic systems and governments.

Africa is possessed with incredible natural resources but for some reason its ruling elite is only concerned with personal wealth rather than that of the population. For years they have excused their robbery on grounds they were ruled by imperialists from Europe. Those people left a half century ago!

The Plight Of The Wealthy In America

There are moments in my life when guilt is felt because for some reason, my heart is not in zinc with Republicans who continue insisting that wealthy folk in this nation are oppressed by Big Government. Recent studies by Emanuel Saez and Gabriel Zuchman reveal the sad plight of our wealthy oppressed men and women who must dwell in shanty mansions without daily access to ordinary folks. Just imagine, no time in the diner talking with people who engage in hard physical labor. According to these economists:

In 1980, the top 1% controlled 7% of our wealth. However, due to bad times, today they control 22%.

The wealth of 90% of Americans fell from 36% to 23%.

Let me explain why this is good news for Americans. Less wealth, means less access to health care. This means you die earlier and open new job opportunities for young Americans. I finally understand why Republicans want the wealthy to get more and more. This leads to earlier deaths, more jobs for the funeral business. And, more jobs at the lower rung of our economy.

Smoke Pot And Be Happy

The figures are in. Last year was the best opium period in history. Oh, that crop was from Afghanistan. You know, the land that Americans have been fighting in for over a decade. Of course, the Taliban are all for abundant poppy fields, since they collect a tax on each farmers crop. Unlike Americans, the Taliban has enough common sense to allow farmers to grow poppy since that makes farmers happy, and prosperous, and the Taliban rather wealthy. Instead of a program that enriches the Taliban and makes farmers like the Taliban, how about?

1. Have the US government purchase the entire poppy crop.

2. Have the US government sell this crop to hospitals.

3. Or, sell some poppy in states that allow drugs.

4. Burn the entire crop.

Just have a policy that helps Afghan farmers and hurts the Taliban!!

Spread The Word And Go to Jail

I was raised as a member of the Jewish religion, and it was made clear to me that we Jews are not interested in converting other folk to become Jews. I was raised to mind my own business and not interfere in the religion of other folks. However, there are several American Christians who believe that Jesus Christ wants them to travel to the dictatorship of North Korea and pester those people with the world of God, or at least their version of the word of God. Every few months some Americans, loaded down with Bibles heads for North Korea, that land of peace and love. For some strange reason the brutal dictatorship of the Kim gang does not want any words spoken that do not preach the word to one and all that Kim Jong-un is the ONE and only God in the land.

Mathew Miller and Kenneth Bae have just spent a few months learning about farming and hard labor in North Korea. After a few months of this work, their desire to work at spreading the word of Christ sort of grew less and less interesting. Finally, boss man, Kim, decided to let them go home. Perhaps, they can now spread the words of Jesus about aiding the poor to American Republicans!

Terrorism Goes On

America is sw e pt by hysteria over the death of ONE person due to Ebola, and the deaths of a few people at the hands of ISIS. At the same time, across the Pacific, thousands of people have died at the hand of terrorists. No, they were not murdered by Muslim fanatics. No, they were not killed by ISIS. They were murdered because they were Muslims! Christians and Jews insist that Muslims are controlled by a desire to kill infidels. Sorry, history proves that all religious groups kill those who are different,

The nation of Myanmar is basically composed of those who are Buddhists. A hundred years ago Muslim migrants came to what was then called, Burma. During the past ten years, under the leadership of Buddhist monks, mobs have attacked the Muslim rohingya. For some strange reason, not a peep out of Fox News about these jihadists. Not a word from Bill Maher who believes the Muslim religion fosters sectarian hatred. Over 100,000 Rohingya have lost their homes and businesses and now hover in refugee camps. Over ten thousand have been murdered. Reality, All religions contain the seed of sectarian hatred.

Onward Christian Soldiers Marching As To Iraq

As you may or may not recall back in 2008 the newly elected President Obama promised to end our wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq. OK, he did remove most soldiers from Iraq although he did insist upon a “surge”in Afghanistan which was about as successful as the one in Iraq–in other words, it never worked aside from a few months. I do not blame Barack Obama for the ineptitude of Iraq Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki who single handedly created the current mess. His anti-Sunni program turned thousands against the Iraq government and compelled most to ally with ISIS. Most probably Obama had limited options in Iraq. Although he could have frozen any and all aid until a coalition government was formed in Iraq.

President Obama will soon dispatch about 1,500 US troops to join the 1,000 currently training Iraq forces. Did Obama have options? Most probably not. However, he could have offered the Iranian army military equipment if they would train Iraqi soldiers. Of course, that would have annoyed AIPAC and led Republicans to go ballistic. I await the Republican military strategy for Iraq. So do Americans!

Putin Wants Bank Bailout!

Few Americans grasp the enormous range of abilities possessed by the man known as, Vladimir Putin. He can wrestle a bear, catch a whale, confront any tiger and handle it hand to claws. So, it is not surprising that Vladimir is also a brilliant financial wizard. Yesterday, the Russian ruble collapsed and it lost at least ten percent in relation with the dollar. Banks are reporting runs in which depositors either demand their money or insist on converting their money to dollars. Alas, there simply is not enough Euros or dollars in Moscow to handle demands. Russians should not fear. The Great Leader will shortly president an economic plan that will end the financial crisis that is sweeping Russia.

We expect Vladimir to threaten Europe with having to listen to his speeches if they refuse to end sanctions toward Russia. On the other hand, the Great One may simply head to the wilds of Siberia to confront the bears. Hopefully, this will not result in a bear market.

A Decision From Left Field On Gays

It was simply a matter of time before a conservative judge in the United States of America got in touch with God and realized that allowing gays and lesbians to marry had made the Big Guy up in the sky very angry. After all, God is not married so how can males and females marry those of the same sex? Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton of the 6th C circuit Court of Appeals has decided that allowing gays and lesbians is a violation of the US Constitution. He believes the Constitution places power in the hands of States so he is voiding any overthrow of bans on gay marriages in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky. Just trust the “work of state democratic processes” is the cry of Sutton. As I recall, it was the work of state democratic processes that denied the right of blacks to marry whites or allow black children to attend schools with whites, and certainly democracy in States made clear our Constitution did NOT allow those black folks to drink at the same water fountain as we white folks!

The Supreme Court will void this decision. It is the last gasp of those who live in another century!
