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 Anyway, Netanyahu finally backed down and rescinded the law.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!

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!

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??

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

USA,aol: “Natural Disaster Zone”

Seeking the Republican nomination for President.

Sweden, Local: “Comic Abducted By Police”

These days cops do need a laugh.

Germany, Der Spiegel: “Sex-Ed Protests”

We sure need some protests over failure to have hands-on teaching about sex.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Portrait Of An Election”

Painted in gold.

Canada, Gobe & Mail: “Jeb: Knowing What We Now Know”

If you are a Bush, it is better never to know what you know.

Plight Of Rohingya

I realize there are few Americans who give a damn about the Muslim Rohingya who live in the Buddhist nation of Myanmar and are subject to brutality and oppression. Sheldon Adelson is willing to give millions to any politician whose only concern is about Israel, but, unfortunately, there is no Muslim billionaire in America who is willing to give millions to our politicians if they would provide assistance to people who are being brutalized, raped and killed by the religious folk known as Buddhists. Thousands of Rohingya have fled in ships to Muslim nations such as Indonesia or Malaysia only to be told-“get the hell out of our waters and go back to death in Myanmar.” Some are demanding that the Association of Southeastern Nations (ASEAN) should expel Myanmar whose behavior is horrendous. A Muslim leader, Nasruddin, has posed some questions: “Where are the ASEAN nations? Why are they silent?”

Good questions. If Israel did something evil, then Muslim nations are shouting war and violence. If a Buddhist nation does something evil to Muslims, we only hear the silence of indifference.

Ramadi, Ramadi Has Fallen

The city of Ramadi has fallen to the nut cases of ISIS because the United States does not wish to cooperate with Iranian leaders in dealing with real problems facing Iraq. The US insists that any group in Iraq which has ties to Iran can not take part in the fight against ISIS. Here is the reality:

1. 30% of Iraq is composed of Sunnis.

2. Iran “advisors” are working with Shiite groups to defeat ISIS.

3. The only way to defeat ISIS is by combining Sunni and Shiite forces.

4. President Obama, the issue right now is ISIS, it is not Iran influencing the government of Iraq.

5. Reality is that President Bush defeated the Sunni leaders of Iraq and turned the government over to Shiite leaders who look to Iran.

Face up to reality. Sunni military forces must be used and they must be led by Sunni officers. If we want to defeat ISIS then bring together all those who oppose this murderous force.

During World War II, the anti-Communist Prime Minister Winston Churchill, upon hearing that Germany had invaded the Soviet Union, offered aid to the Russians. “I will shake hands with the Devil himself if it means saving England.” President Obama might learn from Winston Churchill.

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

It is Monday, someone got shot in Texas, so what is new?

I await a day that does not begin with news of another person deciding to run for the Republican nomination for president.

American politics has shifted from comedy to farce.

I wonder if there was ever a day in the history of this planet when some life form did not die due to violence?

Some are born to die, some to live.

I have a hunch that Jesus just won’t return until guaranteed he will not be shot.

How about resurrecting the body of Ronald Reagan and having it run for president?

So, What’s New? Texas Shootout!

The sun came up today, and night will fall, that is the norm of life in America. Of course, the norm is also that someplace in the state of Texas someone will be blasting away with his Constitutional right to fire his weapon. Just check the Second Amendment. Three Bike gangs gathered at the Twin Peaks Restaurant in Waco Texas in order to get involved in some wacko affairs. What else is supposed to happen in the state of Texas when there bike gangs gather together at a restaurant–they certainly did not come for the food. Anyway, for some reason, the bikers began to blast away, just remember they ate bikers and thus they are gun-toting, God-fearing red blooded Americans out for a Sunday experience. When the shooting was over nine men were dead and about eighteen others were wounded. We do know that the Bandidos and the Cossacks did most of the shooting.

Oh, the good news! none of the dead or wounded were innocent people. A group hid in the freezer for safety.

It was just another normal day in the state of Texas. The sun came up, and someone was killed with a gun.
