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!

The feeling of many Democrats this morning about Barack Obama!

Obama’s Night of Sorrow

In 2008, many Americans such as yours truly decided we needed a new voice after eight years of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld and we rejected Hillary Clinton because we assumed she was too close to the world that must be changed. So, we elected a former college professor who had spent a few years as US Senator. We assumed that he had new ideas and would institute changes in American society. Unfortunately, we did not realize his complete lack of knowledge concerning how politics operated in a federal system of government. Barack Obama must rank among those elected to the presidency who lacked any understanding of government in this nation. He has made clear a distaste with the political process which he regards as beneath his contempt. The result has been six years of incompetent leadership in America. Please do not get me wrong, Obama has some excellent ideas, but it is one thing in American politics to have ideas, and another to get them transformed into laws. So, what went wrong with the Obama administration?

1. Barack Obama never established a working relationship with Democrats in Congress. He rarely speaks with members of Congress let alone listens to their political needs.

2. Barack Obama has pushed legislation without any consideration as to whether these laws politically benefit Democrats in Congress.

3. Barack Obama assumed the presidency in the midst of an economic crisis. He was urged by some of his advisors to read carefully how Franklin D. Roosevelt handled the Depression, but he never studied this model. FDR focused on two issues for the short term–fixing the banking system and then JOBS, JOBS, JOBS. He took office in March and by August about 4,000,000 men and women were working rebuilding roads, bridges, reforesting our forests and building hospitals or bridges, etc..

4. Barack Obama was elected with support from young Americans. He failed the first requirement of a good politician, reward those who elected you. Where was any legislation to address the issue of Student Loans? Nothing was given youth for their hard work. A successful politicians MUST reward his supporters. Yes, that is “politics,”but that is how one governs in a huge nation such as the United States of America.

To sum up: former Professor Barack Obama though the was still back teaching in college where students took notes and obeyed the professor.

Hungary, Budapest Times: “We Are Tops When It Comes To Corruption”

Sorry, we in America have the Koch brothers, try topping them!

Sweden, Local: “Your Number Is Up”

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Dog Acquitted”

Sounds like a lot of crap to me.

UK Guardian: “Day At The Races”

Ah, to just watch horses run instead of these jackasses running for office!

Joni Ernst, Face of Republican Madness

As of this point in time, Joni Ernst, the Republican candidate for US Senator from the state of Iowa has made clear that she far surpasses her opponent in being able to castrate animals. This woman makes Sarah Palin come across as intelligent and possessing knowledge of the world. But, all signs indicate that she will become the next US Senator from the state of Iowa. So, how did this ignorant, no stupid, individual gain such success in the state of Iowa? She benefits from the wave of anger and fear that is sweeping this nation. She benefits from a President who has failed the major need of someone seeking to lead a nation, he simply failed to lead due to his shyness or dislike of the thing we term, politics.

Most probably the entire legislature of this nation will be controlled by the Republican party. Most probably this nation will experience two more years of gridlock, nothing being done to rebuild our infrastructure. We have become a nation that is drifting. We have lost any sense of being a great nation. So, let the crazies take over the asylum. This is the price of fear!

Republicans Invented Progressivism

wasahAmong the ironies in modern America is that the word and the ideas of PROGRESSIVISM was invented by the Republican Party. Senator Robert Follette, a Republican from the state of Wisconsin during the early 1900s was searching for a word that would explain the ideas of modern Republicans and hit upon the word, Progressive. Of course in 1912, the great Republican leader, Theodore Roosevelt ran for the presidency as the leader of the Progressive Party. Who were the enemies of Follette and Roosevelt? None other than wealthy Republican businessmen and bankers! It was the Republican party which in introduced the idea of an income tax(Lincoln brought in the original income tax during the Civil War) and Theodore Roosevelt championed this idea in the election of 1912. It was the Republican party which fought to break up monopolies and to regulate them. It was the Republican party which wanted to extend the right to vote, including direct elections of US Senators.

I might also add that it was the Republican President Dwight Eisenhower who supported the defendants in Brown vs Board of Education that ended segregation in American schools. He also ended segregation in Washington D.C. So, what has happened to the Republican party over the past thirty years? d
