SKY HAS FALLEN IN AMERICA!!

For American conservatives these used to be the best of times, but, alas, these have become the worst of times. There are unconfirmed reports that most Wall Street folk are packing their bags, gathering up their riches and headed for more friendly climes because terrorists are now loose in America and seeking to take away the riches of those who toil only to benefit the American worker. We know those with wealth have only but one thought in their mind, how to accumulate money because in accomplishing this task they bring untold wealth to each and every American who works for a living. The entire edifice of American capitalism is based on the proposition that wealthy folk take from the poor and give to themselves. How else can prosperity be reached in America?

Well, there is threatening news from the city of Los Angel! Just think about it. A hotel worker will now make about $2500 a month in wages. This means they will be purchasing goods with this money. This means they might even have a few dollars to deposit in banks which could then loan their money to business enterprises! This is the first step toward COMMUNISM! This event marks the end of American CAPITALISM! Yes, the sky has fallen in Los Angeles!

Americans Believe Republicans Fight Terrorism!

Among the most incompetent of President Obama’s failures in leadership is his inability to make clear the origin of groups like ISIS. Perhaps, he might speak about the following:

1. In 2001, al-Qaeda consisted of about 5,000 followers. Today, in the thousands.

2. In 2001, Iran had two powerful enemies on its borders-Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to President Bush, enemies of Iran were destroyed.

3. It was the war in Iraq which created terrorist groups. This was the legacy left to the next president.

4. It was President Bush who arranged for American troops to leave Iraq in 2011.

The Bush blunders created havoc and chaos in the Middle East. NO president could have eradicated what was the Bush legacy unless he simply packed up our troops and left!

REPUBLICANS CREATED THE CURRENT CHAOTIC SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST!!

Solving Police Brutality

During the course of my life, I have taught courses in the history of crime, and many of my students were members of the police force. I respect cops. But, it is increasingly obvious that all too many police simply cannot shake from their minds, an attitude that wen one puts on the uniform, everyone had better get out of the way. Sandra Anezquito was in a park in Brooklyn along with her seventeen year old son and husband. She is pregnant, the belly clearly displays budding life. A cop spotted the boy with a knife on his belt and prepared for action. During this episode a cop grabbed the pregnant woman by the arm and flung her belly forward to the ground. Her husband was arrested. Let me get this clear, a seventeen year old boy was with mom and dad in a park, and had a knife on his belt, so this required police action. How about:

1. Approaching mom and dad in order to request them to have the boy remove the knife?

2. How about approaching the boy and quietly telling him to remove the knife?

3. How about shooting the boy in the leg so he falls to the ground rather than mom?

It is time for police to relax and try talk, not bullets!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You’d Better Believe It”

Reducing taxes results in less money for government, not more!

France, Connexion: “Shocking French Video

A French President NOT making love to a woman!

USA, Washington Post: “Why Is John McCain Always on CNN?”

He is THE expert on who should lead America, after all, he identified Sarah Palin!

Sweden, Local: “Donald Duck Gets Votes”

He may quack, but he is not a quack politician!

South Africa: “Life After Oscar Pistorious”

At least we will not hear gun shots.

Fuck It, I Quit!

In every generation there arises a moment when someone utters a statement on television that we all so desire to have uttered. Charlo Greene works for an Alaskan TV station, KTVA, and following a story about the Alaska Cannaebis Club, she blurted out, “And, as for this job, not that I have a choice, but, fuck it, “I quit.” It turns out she is the owner of the club and has been working for the right of people in Alaska to have access to the use of marijuana. She is particularly concerned about those seeking to use marijuana who are ill and believe it can reduce suffering. Ms. Greene has pledged to fight “for freedom and fairness which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.”

I await from Ted Cruz: “Fuck it, I am a schmuck even though I went to Harvard.”

Or, Mitch McConnell, “fuck it, I have no idea how to fire this damn rifle!”

How about Rick Perry on Rick Perry? “Fuck it, this dude is one big fuckup.”

As for Barack Obama: “Fuck it, why didn’t I listen to advisers and study how Franklin Roosevelt handled a Depression.”

Then again, there is always Sarah Palin: “Fuck it, there is nothing to the story that I will wed that bear!”

Kansas Is Not A Happy Place

The ongoing mantra of the Republican Party is that reducing taxes on the wealthy, reducing government expenditures results in a fantastic economic boom and an incredible rise in good paying jobs for all Americans. Governor Sam Brownback in the great state of Kansas has experimented with those supposedly sound economic concepts. The result is a growing state debt that has risen to over one billion dollars, declining government services for people, and -believe it or not– declining jobs for people! The great Brownback “experiment in economics”has failed. Moddy’s has dramatically reduced the credit rating of the state of Kansas because even economists do not believe the concept that reducing income results in more money and more jobs.

Just about every Republican running for a state office is currently trailing his Democratic rival. Every poll indicates that people in Kansas do not believe they are enjoying good times. They are worried sick about a declining economy, lack of money for schools, lack of money for those seeking health care, and lack of trust in the great Brownback “economic experiment.” Just imagine if Mitt Romney had become President and tried out this economic theory upon the American people?

Let’s Play Football

It is Sunday in America and in stadiums throughout the land men and women will be watching the physical assaults by men against other men. In the good old days, this was a day when people had fun. Alas, today, men will not be playing on the field due to their playing with fists against girl friends, wives, and their children. The National Football League has suddenly become aware that within their midst are men who enjoy playing with fists against family members and that is not permitted. Of course, this has been going on since the first football game was played a hundred years ago. There is nothing new to violence in America.

I wonder what would happen if every business in America suspended employees who employ violence against their loved ones. After all, this is America, a land in which everyone is permitted to possess a gun. I assume those with guns fire them. We educate our youth that it is OK to fire weapons of destruction and then are shocked when they use fists instead of guns. What would this land be if no one, except police, used weapons of violence?

France, Connexion: “Ways To Make Life Simple”

Just elect men and women with simple minds.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You’d Better Believe It”

Cut taxes and get more money for the government.

USA,Washington Post: “Reluctant Warrior”

Two word description of Barack Obama?

Sweden, Local: “Wins Fights For Death Benefits”

Naturally, he is dead.

Australia, Sydney Morning Herald: “Don’t Act Against God”

If you do, watch out for the thunder bolts!

Another Gun Nut On Loose

Eric Frein was a student at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania. He portrayed himself in a high school yearbook as a boy with a gun ready to blast away at something. Along the way, he joined the Eastern Wolves which are part of something termed the Red Alliance. This group holds war simulations in which young men pretend they are soldiers some place in eastern Europe where they fight some bad people. At this point they have decided that Serbians are the bad people so they dress like someone in east Europe and pretend to have a Slavic accent. These games are conducted by the Red Alliance which believes that Americans must learn how to fight against bad people, and what better way then to go into forests and pretend they are engaged in fighting the bad folks?

Eric Frein was confronted by two local cops and then proceeded to murder one and wound the other. I don’t know, perhaps the police had an “east European accent?” Eric is part of the survivalist enterprise which consists of men and women who await some terrible moment when the Communists, oops, those people are gone, so there must be another invading army approaching and we must be prepared. I know, it is ISIS, a bunch of guys who have guns and speak with east Middle Eastern accents!

Public Hatred OK

It has becomes an accepted idea in the Unites States of America as well as throughout the Western world that Muslims are terrorists who enjoy murdering the innocent. At this point in time, Americans fear for their lives at the prospect of ISIS coming to this nation and beheading all of us. Pamela Geller is a blogger who hates Muslims because they kill. She is a Jew who believes that Jews in the Middle East are confronted to the greatest threat in the history of Judaism. She has begun a campaign in New York City’s subways and buses to make clear to one and all that the Muslim religion is based on hatred. She has taken out ads that will soon appear in the Subway:
ISLAMIC JEW HATRED–IT’S IN THE QURAN

According to Ms. Geller the Muslim Holy Book contains passages about hating people.

Let me get this straight. The Jewish Old Testament and the Christian New Testament contain words of hate. Most religious books are filled with hatred toward “bad people.”

Oh, Ms. Geller, if you added up the number of Jews killed since the birth of Israel in 1948 that figure would not surpass the number of Jews murdered by Christian Germans on a single day of the Holocaust!

Muslims kill thousands, Christians killed millions. And, all killed because God was on their side!
