HEADLINES FROM THE WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “Teen Drowns In Graduation Parade”

I assume he was graduating from the Coast Guard.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Our Unluckiest Day”

The day Vladimir Putin was born?

USA, aol: “Georege H.W. Bush Jumps Out Of Plane”

Escaping modern Republican congressmen??

USA, Army Times: “Soldier Unites With Dog”

I give this three woofs.

UK, Guardian: “Spain King Sworn In”

I hope he escapes the swearing in of the Spanish people.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Surely, Common Sense”

Don’t let Mayor Rob Ford near any bar in town?

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

Prime Minister Maliki?

So, Who Is To Blame?

The virtual collapse of the Iraq government has not hit the American people with resulting confusion and anger. Many now demand to know why this collapse occurred and who is to blame?

1. Dick and Don want to make clear they had nothing to do with the wolf blowing down the pig’s house.
2. George is in Texas chopping wood so leave him out of this discussion.
3. Republicans who voted to invade Iraq want the world to know that things were great when George Bush left the presidency. Since then, you know who is to blame for what happened.
4. The Iraq government blames lack of American assistance. Of course, Prime Minister Maliki turned down US offers for advisers.
5. Fox News is in a bit confused. Who the hell should they blame? Certainly, Fox News which backed the invasion has nothing to do with the current situation in Iraq.
6. Hillary was against it before she voted for it, and now wants everyone to know the Bush folk lied about the situation.
7. How about the American people who overwhelmingly supported this invasion?

Putin Punts Rather Than Hits The Line

President Vladimir Putin is engaged in some form of play, but the rest of the world just does not know which sport is currently on his mind. After demanding that his stooges in the Russian Parliament grant him the right to send the Army into Ukraine, he decided to reverse course, and now asked the upper house to revoke what they gave him the right to do. In reality, this move prevents Russia from winding up as the most hated nation in Europe, and all but ensures that business leaders will think twice before investing in dear Mother Russia. Even as he spoke, separatists shot down a Ukraine helicopter that was carrying personnel whose job it was to install equipment to monitor the existing cease fire. It goes without saying, this is one cease fire that is currently firing away.

I have been informed that Ted Cruz would like to investigate the role played by President Obama in the entire Ukraine mess. Naturally, John McCain wants the US Air Force to bomb Ukraine and end separatism in that nation. Sarah Palin is calling for an investigation into the role played by Hillary Clinton in the Ukraine. Oh, Governor Rick Perry when asked to comment wanted to know if this Ukraine was near the border of Texas.

Supreme Court Blocks Anti Abortion Law

The issue of whether or not a woman is entitled to an abortion contains complex ideas concerning the nature of individual rights and the power of government. Those seeking to declare abortion as a violation of the rights of the unborn encounter the disconcerting issue as to the rights of an individual–woman. The United States Supreme Court refused to discuss a ruling by the 7th U.S. Court of Appeals which upheld a Judge’s decision that barred enforcement of a Wisconsin law that required a doctor to have admitting rights for his patients at local hospitals if he performed an abortion. This law, in effect, would close down many abortion clinics.

It is rather simple, hospitals refuse to grant admitting rights to doctors performing abortions which means, under the proposed law, they could not perform an abortion. I find bewildering conservative objections to the right of government to decide if I can carry a gun, or to pass health care laws, but, see no problem with denying women the right to control their body. Either conservatives believe government should stay out of telling people what they can do or they believe government can tell me what to do.

Ted Cruz-It’s You, Not Us!

Barack Obama is far from being considered among the great American presidents, but Republicans insist that whatever problems are confronting America are his fault. When Republican Ronald Reagan became president in 1980, the National Debt was $900,000,000,000, When he left the presidency it was $2.5 Trillion. When his successor, Republican President Bush left office it was $5 trillion. When Democratic President Bill Clinton left office it was still $5 trillion,k but he gave newly elected President George Bush a budget that had a surplus. When this George Bush left office, the national debt had risen to $11 Trillion and the idea of a balanced budget had disappeared.

Under the administration of George Bush thousands of illegal immigrants entered the country, does anyone recall a single word of protest from Republicans? Under the Obama administration TWICE THE NUMBER OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HAVE BEEN SENT BACK TO MEXICO. So, who does Senator Ted Cruz blame for illegal immigrants? Everyone knows the answer. He blasted President Obama for allowing illegal immigrant children to gain refuge with relatives in America. Such is the high crime and thus the next step is IMPEACHMENT!!

Republicans Stand For Individual Rights

Anyone who reads material from the Republican party or who watches Fox News quickly understands that the party of Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt believes strongly in the right of an individual to control her destiny–and certainly her body. Florida Governor Rick Scott just signed into law HB1047 which now makes it a crime for women to abort a fetus is a doctor believes the fetus can survive. The new bill replaces the existing law which prevents an abortion if the woman is 24 weeks into her pregnancy. I assume the new law places the decision as to whether or not an abortion occurs in the hands of your friendly doctor. Oh, the new law makes clear if the doctor provides the wrong answer to a pregnant woman and says the fetus can not survive, that doctor can wind up in jail!!

Republicans believe each person has a right to carry a weapon.
Republicans believe each businessman has the right to determine if a worker has health insurance.
Republicans believe each wealthy person has the right to spend and spend in order to get his candidate elected.
BUT Republicans do NOT believe each woman has a right to decide what is done to HER body!!

Let’s Defrock Republicans!

A story out of Thailand reports growing evidence of improper behavior on the part of Buddhist monks. A new National Hotline will allow any person to report activities on the part of monks that are not exactly kosher. In May, five monks were defrocked for sexual abuse of young boys. You know, the sort of thing that Does occur in the Christian or Jewish religions. How about:

1. A National Hotline in America to report gun nut cases who wander around with loaded weapons?

2. A National Hotline that leads to the defrocking of any Republican who dares to work with a Democrat. Double defrock, if they work with LIBERALS!

3. A National Hotline that reports every penny spent by the Koch Brothers to gain victory in elections with their money?

4. A National Hotline that reports each teary statement by John Boehner?

5. A National Hotline which keeps the American people informed, twenty-four hours a day, 7 days of week, about anything anyone found out about the truth at Benghazi!

China Aids US Poor

The United States of America has the world’s most inept Congress when it comes to passing any laws dealing with the plight of poor people. Of course, if the issue concerns those with millions or billions, no need to stand in line for a handout. A Chinese billionaire, Chen Guangbiao has decided to do something about poverty in the USA. He is inviting 1,000 poor people to have lunch with him in the exclusive Central Park Loeb Boathouse Restaurant. Each person will receive a wonderful meal along with a $300 check that can be spent for “occupational training.” Heck, in the old days American missionaries went to China to feed the starving people so I guess we are owed something in return.

According to Chen, “I want to send the message in the U.S. that there are good philanthropists in China.” Gee, thanks. I assume the Koch Brothers will reciprocate with a lunch in China for the poor. They will receive chicken soup along with a dollar bill to send to their local political leader.

Redskins Scalped By Government

The United States government has launched an attack on those damn Washington Redskins for daring to use the word, Redskin. According to our Federal government, the use of this word is “disparaging to Native Americans.” In other words, one can use the expression, Native Americans, and honor those who were living in North America when Europeans initially arrived, but, under no conditions, dare to use the insult of, Redskin.

Those living in North America prior to the arrival of Europeans conquerers were NOT AMERICANS. They were Sioux or Apache or Delaware or Iroquois and so on. They had tribal names and NONE of them was, Native American. The name, American, derives from Amerigo Vespuci. He worked for the powerful Medici family, and after returning from his voyages to the New World, wrote descriptions of his trip. A Medici sent the description to some monks in Germany who just bought a printing press. They printed the letter and in a forward noted that since Amerigo Vespuci had discovered this land, they would refer to it as America.

In other words, American refers to an ITALIAN.

So, who cares if Redskin or American is used. Both are incorrect.
