The triumph of Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel is the flip side to the victory of Republicans in America last fall. It is now clear that in this world, those who hate and those who believe the greatest threat in this world are the forces of peace who seek to create just societies based upon principles of equality for all humans. Bibi is beside himself with pride that he frightened the people of Israel and got them to fear and fear and fear. It is a winning hand in these days of social media and hate. His Likud party will form a coalition of right wing religious nut cases and continue policies based upon the concept that to be a Jew is to be a modern version of totalitarianism. No, Israel Jews are NOT Nazis, but they have adopted the policies of hate and fear which is remarkably similar to that political movement. NO, Israel will NOT murder millions, but would you believe thousands as they did in Gaza because three innocent Jewish children died.
So, what is the future of Bibi Netanyahu:
1. No establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
2. No desire to cooperate with the United States of America.
3. Reaching out to American Republicans. Heck, maybe he can be their candidate in 2016!
The European Union imposes sanctions upon Israel.
Israel becomes a completely isolated nation.
There are consequences for behaving like a wild bully.
We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.
NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
I wonder what ever happened to common sense in America.
These days there are 100 and one Secretary of States in America.
Heaven would be a life without emails.
Bibi Netanyahu is anything but a Jew.
I often wonder how America became this hating nation?
America could use a George Washington who loved America more than his state of Virginia.
These days the inmates run the asylum of Congress.

I have been in love with football since my early years and this interest translated into devoting countless hours of my life watching and thinking about the National Football League. In my youth, professional football players did not wear extensive equipment, they simply ran out on the field and played football. There is no question these football players were not men who weighed over 300 pounds, simply a group of men who enjoyed being on the field. Many simply did not have any protective gear, why worry when your main goal was to catch the ball or tackle another player. Since that era we have evolved into football teams whose players seek to hurt those on the other team. Player after player winds up with traumatic damage to their brains or body.
Chris Borland is a player for the San Francisco Forty-Niners and is in his second year in the NFL. Mr. Borland informed his coach that enough was enough. He decided to end his career because the danger to his body and brain was too great. So, he gave up wealth for health. l have a hunch this young man will grow into a healthy old man while his teammates will become wealthy and ill. So, which is the wise choice, healthy or wealthy?
