Once Again Monica Lewinsky In News!

For some strange reason my mind does not compute having to read stories about Monica Lewinsky. She remains in that part of my life associated with the 20th century, not the 21st. But, the dark haired woman is once more in our lives after an interview on the NBC TODAY show. Monica wants the world to know that she was a virgin to the blight of nastiness which became forever linked with her life. “I was the most humiliated woman in the world. To be called stupid and a slut and a bimbo and ditzy and to be taken out of context, it was excruciating. I was a virgin to humiliation of that level until that day. I mean it was just violation after violation.” In other words, she is upset. That point I get. She just wants this story to be blown away from the national scene and that is why she is on television reminding one and all about the story. That point I do not get.

Let me clarify this story for those who were not yet born when it occurred or were too young to grasp the meaning of this story. Once upon a time there was a President of the United States of America who did not spend his days worrying about terrorists and Muslims or people crossing our southern border. He was much more interested in his own anatomy. Sometimes, there is good news being worried about one’s prick. He just wanted to fuck A woman, not the entire nation as do our more current presidents. He was more interested in blowing away a mouth rather than blowing away our Constitution. This innocent woman just wanted to get close to our President, and of course, close to his lower half of body. I do not think she is a slut, when it comes to those who fuck, look in the direction of Wall Street. Frankly, when it comes to fucking, Wall Street types are the world’s leading sluts. Who else can surpass these guys and gals when it comes to fucking Americans??

Flight From Or Toward Mosul??

The American media is filled with horror stories from Iraq and Republican congressmen are daily reciting their outrage on Fox News how Barack Obama “lost Iraq to Muslim terrorists.” A new mantra is emerging within the Republican party that things were going great in Iraq until the dude from Africa took office, and began a campaign to transform peaceful Iraq into a divided nation. However, on the road leading from or to Mosul which is now under control of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq,(ISIS) a different story is emerging. Those traveling the road leading to or from Mosul now encounter Kurdish troops–”Last Peshmerga Checkpoint” which are manned by Kurdish troops ready and able to handle the ISIS. A driver told a reporter that he was headed back to Mosul. “Everything is normal there. The ISIS people do not interfere. Hospitals, municipal services, it’s business as usual. In other words, a city of nearly two million people was taken over without any opposition by a few thousand men.

A police officer who was headed back to Mosul explained to a reporter why he was going home. He bitterly discussed his Shiite superiors. “They don’t even consider we Sunnis to be human beings. Only Shiites got promoted to become officers. We were second class citizens.” Now he wants to return to a city run by Sunnis who intend to make Shiites second class citizens. So, those in cars headed south from Mosul are Shiites or any of the remaining Christians who fear death in a city run by Sunnis. In Baghdad, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has rejected any idea of forming a coalition government that includes Sunni and Shiites. That is why people are headed north to Mosul or south away from Mosul.

They Know Best For You!

There is good news coming out of Washington D.C. pertaining to the right of Americans to enjoy some sort of privacy in their lives. The good news is that those who decide what is right or wrong about what can or can not be invaded is still under the control of our government. We can sleep comfortably at night knowing the NSA, the CIA, the FBI and God knows what other agencies are awake and protecting us against evil doers. It is so wonderful knowing that our beloved government knows better than you and I what you and I should do or can not do. The Privacy and Civil Liberties for Oversight Board(PCLOB) is awake when you and I are asleep. PCLOB Chair David Medine wants one and all to know that his agency walks “right up to the line of constitutionality” because it loves Americans and understands more completely than the average American what sort of privacy he is entitled to.

Medine supports warrantless searches just weeks after the House of Representatives voted to end them. OK, so we elected the House of Representatives, but who knows better what should be our rights, those we elect or those who spend day and night knowing what is good for us? Think of the PCLOB as your friendly doctor who knows that you have cancer and he will make certain the cancer will not kill you. Just follow his directions, he knows best. Look at the bright side, you can have sex with your spouse or loved one, and the PCLOB will not be checking on your performance. Who you fuck is your business, provided, of course, it is not some Muslim terrorist!

Then again, would you sleep more comfortably tonight if the PCLOB supervised your sex life?

Good Economic News

The US government released latest economic figures and things are getting better and brighter for Americans. Over 288,000 new jobs were added in June, and May figures were readjusted from 282,000 new jobs to 304,000 new ones. Unemployment has dropped to 6.1% and, theoretically at least, the economy is headed in the right direction. Of course, there is still the long term unemployed who number about 7.5 million and millions of part time workers who would love to have a full time job. We have come a long way from the mess left by former President Bush, but, for some reason, most Americans still do not agree things are brighter. This must be the first time in our history that when the economy improves and people are getting work, that Americans do not believe their lives are getting better!

How come? Sorry, my broken record of complaint about President Obama and his failure to communicate with the American people. How about a press conference today in which Obama can boast and praise himself? This man drives me crazy with his ineptness in getting across the message that things are getting better in this nation! Just imagine, during the Obama administration unemployment fell from 11% to 6.1%! At the current rate nearly three million new jobs will be created. And, few Americans know what he did!!

“Crazy Idea-Tax Millionaires!”

Governor Chris Christie has been under the gun due to charges of criminal behavior regarding events at the George Washington bridge and allegations that his wealthy friends have been receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks, so what else, but return to the idea that all problems in America begin and end with efforts by Socialist Democrats to increase taxes on the wealthy. The state of New Jersey faces a budget hole that must be filled with dollars. Democrats are proposing a TEMPORARY increase in taxes for those earning $1 million or more a year. You can well imagine the horror that would be imposed on someone who earns a million if the EVIL GOVERNMENT made him pay another $25,000 in taxes in order to close the fiscal gap. How in hell could anyone live on an income that is only $975,000 a year! Oh my God, will mom or dad actually have to cook a meal now that we are down to one nanny?

Naturally, Governor Christie blames state employees for all fiscal problems since they pay into a state pension system rather into Social Security and there are gaps in the system. A simple solution would be asking the wealthy to help close the gap. According to Governor Christie, this is a “crazy idea.” His initial solution is not to close the fiscal gap and just let it stand. Talk about a “crazy idea.” Hell, Governor Christie vetoed construction of a new tunnel under the Hudson River which the federal government offered to help pay for. The last time a tunnel was built under the Hudson River was in 1905.

For Christie, the plight of wealthy folk is always the most important issue in his life. That is why his administration has given over one billion dollars in tax breaks to his business friends. Talk about a crazy idea when a state needs money!

On July 4th! A Day For Immigrants To Affirm!

This year marks my 83rd July 4th since I arrived in August of 1930 and thus missed July 4th of that year. July 4th always had meaning during my early years of life since I was a fanatic baseball fan and so loved having a double header(for the price of one game) played by all major league baseball teams. I could listen on my radio to the exploits of the New York Yankees in an era when they won world series after world series. Baseball players were giants in my life, they represented the end result of my dreams. Of course, my initial eleven July 4th came at a time when we had poverty, but no war. Then came World War II and July 4th was a day when we honored those who fought against Nazism and the Japanese. At least we knew very clearly who were the good and who were the bad guys in our lives. On July 4th we stood as a nation united, we felt as one in the struggle against evil. There was no ambiguity, the Nazis and “Japs” were the enemies.

As the child of immigrants, in those days no one differentiated between “illegal” and “legal” immigrants, we were simply immigrants blessed to be in a land where we all worked to defeat evil doers. I always felt a certain moment of patriotism standing at Yankee Stadium as the sang our nation’s song. Years later when I served in the armed forces, July 4th made me feel part of America. I was not the son of “foreigners,” I was an American. We understood that if one lived and worked in America it was simply a matter of time before they began to think and behave as an American. Who cared from whence you came, who cared if you were a recent arrival, the only important thing was–did you want to become an American!

I once wrote a history of America. I felt proud in so doing. It enabled me to bring together all memories of July 4th into one story. We Americans are ALL IMMIGRANTS! The issue for Americans has never been –how did you get here! No, the issue for Americans has always been–do you love America and will you fight for its continued existence!!

“We Will Deport The Children”

I was a young boy living in America during the 1930s when children in Germany whose crime was to be Jewish were confronting the horror of hatred and violence. The United States of America,k basically, refused to allow thousands of Jews to escape death by coming to our nation as immigrants–this was the era of Depression. The American government even refused to allow children to enter our sacred shores. Fortunately, England did agree to accept hundreds of German Jewish children which enabled them to escape the Holocaust. There is no Holocaust in Central America, but the lives of children in Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador is filled with daily fear of beatings, rape or death at the hands of rival drug gangs that believe in the cult of death. Thousands of children from these lands have fled to the border of America in hope of asylum from the horror that awaits them at home. They have arrived in response to rumors that if they reach the US border, they will be allowed to enter and then sent to relatives in America.

Naturally, since the children do not have a million dollars, Republicans do not want them in THEIR country. Naturally, President Obama continues believing that if he is tough on the border, then Republicans will cooperate with him on immigration reform. To believe such nonsense is to believe the Tooth Fairy exists. US Secretary of State John Kerry told Central American leaders the children will not be allowed to enter. “We obviously understand people who want to do better and who look for a better life. But at the same time there are rules and laws, and there is a process, and there is false information that is being spread about benefits that might be available to the young people.”

Have we not learned anything from the Holocaust? How about allowing children with relatives in America who are willing to allow the children to live with them to enter? The fact that children would have a home and food and education without requiring federal dollars does not impact the survival of this nation. However, it does impact the survival of these children.

The Original Intention Of Our Founding Fathers

I have spent my life in the study of American history, and at one point even wrote a history of the United States of America. I have read the words of our Founding Fathers, James Madison or Alexander Hamilton or George Washington, and definitely what Thomas Jefferson wrote about religious freedom. The First Amendment to the Constitution dealt with FREEDOM. Our Founding Fathers were concerned about Freedom of speech, of thought, and definitely of religion. I am not a legal scholar in any way,shape or form compared to the knowledge of Justice Scalia or Justice Roberts or any of the so-called Original Intention judges claiming to know what was in the minds of our Founding Fathers. Unfortunately, for this group of “legal scholars” it is quite clear they are not “scholars” when it comes to history nor when it comes to our Founding Fathers. The Hobby Lobby most probably has our Founding Fathers up in Heaven shaking their heads in confusion and bewilderment that any so-called, “scholar” would believe it was their intention that one’s religious views were more important than the views of our political leaders.

Most important for our Founding Fathers was: SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. They wanted an end to government having links to churches and imposing a “government view” upon the inhabitants of America. They wanted a world in which all could pray as they desired, and that no religion could be linked to operations of the government. Jefferson once said he wanted his fight to separate church and state to be mentioned on his tomb stone. Allowing a corporation to insist their religious views allowed them to refuse to obey the government would have shocked Jefferson.

And, by the way, Justice Scalia, our Founding Fathers differed and argued throughout the Constitutional Convention, there was no ONE INTENTION. However, it is clear that all agreed on separation of church and state. It would be patriotic if Catholic Supreme Court Justices separated THEIR RELIGIOUS VIEWS from their role as judges who do not represent the Catholic Church on matters of legality. Their responsibility is to represent the views of Americans in 2014.

General Motors Has Rights!

There are times when decent people have to take an unpopular stand when it entails actions by our oppressive government which seeks to destroy our basic American rights! We offer a defense of the General Motors corporation which has spent its history in a fight for the right of Americans to drive what they desire, where they desire, and without any interference on the part of the American government. It is also now clear since the Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case, that GM leaders will invoke their religious belief views to prevent the Federal government from imposing laws requiring car safety. The issue of car safety is one that is decided by those who design, manufacture and sell cars. Once GOVERNMENT can order businessmen to adhere to safety rules, what follows–taking over the companies and ending free enterprise in our great land??

OK, so GM has recalled a mere 29 million cars, OK, so GM has recalled this year about 5.23 million car due to some exaggerated charge about faulty ignition switches. So what. This is America! This is the land of FREE ENTERPRISE. This is the land in which those who run a business do NOT have to adhere to the rules of GOVERNMENT–just check with the US Supreme Court. All the leaders of GM have to do is invoke their religious freedom rights and ignore safety as defined by the GOVERNMENT. As GM points out, “the fatal crashes occurred in older made full-size sedans being recalled for inadvertent ignition key rotation. There is no conclusive evidence that the defect condition caused these crashes.”

Please note this was an “inadvertent” problem. There was no Original Intention to make a mistake. According to Justice Scalia, if the Original Intention was OK then you must adhere to the Original Intention. Anyway, these are Christian men and women so they are not bound by any GOVERNMENT RULES AND REGULATIONS. GOD BLESS GM!!

Next time, purchase a car that is safe. If you decide to purchase a car with defects, then it is YOUR fault for dying!

The Forgotten Iraq People

Among the most under reported stories about the Bush/Cheny/Rumsfeld invasion of Iraq is how this blunder impacted the lives of Christians. Iraq Christians are among the oldest branch of this religion since they descend from Arabs who converted to the new religion hundreds of years prior to the arrival of the Muslim religion. Iraq Christians lived in peace under the regime of Saddam Hussein who regarded this group as loyal to him since they feared that if he left power, militant Islamics would seize power. Of course, this is exactly what happened due to the Bush invasion of Iraq. No one in his administration gave a single thought to the impact of ending Saddam and bringing in Islamic militants like Shiite Nouri Maliki. Of the estimated 1,000,000 Christians who were in Iraq when American troops entered in 2003, about 500,000 are still in the country. Most have fled to avoid persecution from the Islamic government installed by the “born again Christian” George Bush!

As Islamic terrorists head for Mosul and other areas in north Iraq, Christians are terrified. The city of Qaraqosh lies about forty miles from Mosul which is now controlled by ISIS. Fortunately, a Kurdish force of about 1,500 Peshmerga soldiers are now in the town and ready to defend Christians from slaughter by Muslim terrorists. I wonder how Fox News will report how the invasion they supported led to the deaths of thousands of Christians?
