Conservatives In Action Mean NO Action For Poor People

Conservatives in America want power so they can prove that enacting conservative laws will result in peace and prosperity to all who dwell in this fair land. Actually, we have a vivid example of what occurs when conservatives become the party leading society– the United Kingdom. Under the leadership of Prime Minister David Cameron, the people of England are being subject to what constitutes a conservative concept of government. Jessica was 22 weeks pregnant and had to walk two miles to get to the food bank because she was too poor to take public transportation. She was receiving an Employment and Support Allowance for her mental health issues after she had given birth to a still born child. Jessica was informed that after she failed to attend a session on “work focus” she would witness a reduction in her allowance.

In merry England if those who are poor they may be subject to less money for failing to attend obesity sessions and then reduce their weight. After all, a philosophy that urges less government supervision of people just wants to check their weight. Conservatives believe those with wealth do not need government supervision or government laws and regulations, but when it comes to what poor people weigh, send in government agents!

ISIS Enemy Is ISIS

Americans like those on Fox News continue describing ISIS as composed of warriors who are going to sweep across the Middle East and enjoy increasing popularity. Those who lead ISIS must be among the most incompetent terrorists on this planet. Their one and constant tactic is to murder people in the most grotesque ways. Most probably they believe fear will result in Muslims rallying to their side. Well, look at the record:

1. They burned to death a Jordanian pilot whose family is part of the most important tribe in that land. Prior to the burning, Jordanians were divided about the government policy of fighting ISIS. Today, at least 95% of Jordanians want to destroy ISIS.

2. Egypt has been on the sidelines in the campaign against ISIS. NO Egyptian planes were bombing that group. So, what does ISIS do? They decide to behead twenty Egyptians who were working in Libya. Now Egyptian planes are bombing. Egyptian dictator General Sisi made clear the new policy of his nation. “We have to work together to defeat terrorism.”

ISIS may win a few battles and kill some people. However, it has lost support in the Middle East!

Cold Place For Hot Air

I do devote extensive time to the issue of how I can assist members of the Republican party to succeed in life. After all, if we continue allowing Republicans to devote their energies for the betterment of the United States–at least the Republican version of that goal– what lies ahead for poor Americans. Anyway, the United Kingdom has announced there are jobs available in Antarctic in the post office.

1. This would be perfect for Ted Cruz, he could speak every day without being interrupted. No one would halt his goals by voting against him. I assume Penguins are not Muslim terrorists.

2. Marco Rubio could finally be able to support the arrival of immigrant Penguins without losing votes.

3. Rudy Giuliani would become a one man hot air source that would finally melt the ice.

4. John Boehner would stand up against any coalition of Penguin Democrats.

5. Anyway, Jeb Bush could become the third Bush president.

Saudi Government Concerned About Death

There is a feeling of comfort for we Americans knowing that the great nation of Saudi Arabia stands with us as allies in the fight to end terrorism in the world. The Saudi Press Agency is furious at the terrible murder of three Muslims in North Carolina. The Saudi government called for an end to incitement of violence against Muslims in the United States of America. Saudis are angry at the “racism and Islmamaphobia that is so prevalent in the United States of America. If there is one thing the Saudi government can not tolerate is “cowardly terrorist behavior” against the innocent. I must confess at feeling comforted that one of our allies does not like cowardly acts of terrorism.

Of course, I am a bit confused. During the past year at least two dozen people in the peaceful land of Saudi Arabia have been beheaded. Prominent critics who seek democratic rights for women or the people of Saudi Arabia wind up getting a few hundred lashes on their backs. I assume lashing people is simply an example of NOT behaving in a cowardly manner. Oh well, I am so happy we have the “good guys” on our side in the war against terrorism.

Another Death In Iraq

The war in Iraq continues and people are dying. NO, there is not another beheading by ISIS, no, terrorists are not killing the innocent. No, American planes are not bombing terrorists. It is simply a continuation of a war that has gone on for over a decade. A Sunni elder, Sheikh Qasim al Janabi was driving in a convoy with members of his tribe when they were halted at a checkpoint in Baghdad. One would assume that being halted within the city limits of the capital of this fair land would not pose a danger to life or limb. This sheik was an important leader of Sunnis and has been working to reduce tensions and gather support of the war against ISIS. So, what led to his death and those of members of his family?

His convoy was halted by members of Shiite militia whose concept of fighting ISIS is to murder Sunnis who seek to murder members of ISIS. A voice of moderation is dead. We can expect some form of retaliation for these murders. Prime Minister Haider al Abadi IS trying to end the madness of killing and killing of Sunnis by Shiites. NO, Iraq does not need more American planes. But, it does need common sense and respect for one another if the fight against ISIS is to become a victory.

Latin Nights Of Anger

Nicolas Maduro is on a mission to become the new Fidel Castro in Latin America. Prior to becoming a prominent political leader of Venezuela he developed his government expertise as a bus driver, but when one is connected to great men like Hugo Chavez, the former president of Venezuela, one does not have to possess intelligence, just some guys in uniforms to handle the crowd. These days in this lovely Latin American nation one waits on line for about three hours in order to get a roll of toilet paper. Thousands of students demonstrated last year against the mess that is Venezuela and a few dozen were killed or arrested. These days people attempt to complain about the economic disaster in their nation only to be brutally informed that only Yankee spies and saboteurs complain about life in a so-called “Socialist paradise.”

Ok, there has been an economic class that has run this nation until Chavez entered the scene. Prior to his death the so-called leader of the people proceeded to wreck the economy and created a collapse that has left people without basic necessities. It is one thing to damage the wealthy with higher taxes, another to wreck the economy. Maduro devotes his time to warnings about the CIA attempting a coup. Frankly, our CIA could not plan a coup, let alone any action that would be successful. So people do without because Maduro will not use economic sense and get the economy working again.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Russia, Moscow Times: “Moscow Welcomes Kim Jong un”

To a basketball game?

France, Connnexion: “Chicken Rules The Roost”

In Congress, Republicans play chicken with our economy.

USA, aol: “Dirty Money Confiscated”

Not in Wall Street!

Norway, Norway Post: “Criminals Deported”

And, not a single one is a wealthy person.

Sweden, Local: “Widen Duties For Dogs”

So, now dogs must guard cats?

Ukraine -Maybe Quiet?

I confess that my anger emerges when I read about the murder of thousands in Ukraine. I want the West to stand with Ukraine against the gangster Vladimir Putin. I want arms to be sent to Ukraine and confront the stooges of Vladimir who currently are killing the innocent in that nation. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Hollande decided on a different approach. They have been negotiating with Vladimir Putin to achieve a cease fire in Ukraine. They signed such an agreement. It is NOT a solution. It will not punish those who initiated this conflict. It will NOT stop Putin from constantly causing havoc in the world. But, it does:

1. End the possibility of an armed conflict with Russia.

2. At least for the moment, ends death in Ukraine.

3. It will not please Senator John McCain and those Republicans who want to get some fighting going on.

4. It seeks to avoid the Iraq syndrome of sending in the troops.

So, the world is not perfect. In the meantime, do the best one can.

Iran And Nuclear Weapons

Senator John McCain is one tough dude and he is willing to draw his pistol at any moment in defense of the American way of life. He agrees with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that any and all discussion must be ended with Iran. Bibi and John insist no negotiations and the end result will be????

How about this end result after Iranian negotiations are ended:

1. Russian President Vladimir Putin arrives in Tehran.

2. President Putin offers to assist Iranians in securing atomic development that leads to atomic weapons.

3. President Putin and China agree to end sanctions against Iran.

4. Oh, Putin was just in Egypt where he offered to build them a nuclear plant.

The Bibi — John end result is this:

1. Israel bombs Iranian nuclear facilities.

2. Thousands of missiles wind up in Israel

3. Israel bombs Moscow to show the Russians no one messes with Israel!

John and Bibi have NO logical plan other than the end of the world!

Obama Modern Anarchist

The expression, “Anarchist” in American history was usually applied to those who believed the capitalist system was evil and desired to create a society in which there was no central government, and people were left to function at without worrying about laws. They were able to inhabit a paradise in which government had disappeared and rule of “the people” was now established. Anarchists endeavored to achieve their goals by use of force which meant blowing up leaders of government. Congressman John Boehner never bothers his mind with reading history since history is written by “intellectuals.” John Boehner wants a law passed that would allow construction of the Keystone pipe line from Canada. He is rather upset at President Obama–so what else is new.

According to Boehner, the Obama opposition to the pipe line derives from bad people. “instead of listening to the people, the president is standing with a bunch of left fringe extremists and anarchists.” At the moment, oil prices are dropping because there is a surplus of oil in the world. So, the Republican solution to this problem is to get MORE oil!

1. Republicans claim Barack Obama wants more government.

2. John Boehner claims Barack Obama wants to end government.

Only in Republican AmericaQ!
