Idaho Seeks To Protect Marriage

Governor “Butch” Otter of the great state of Idaho is determined to protect the citizens of this state agains the horde of Gays and Lesbians seeking to enter this domain and pollute the minds of its inhabitants with weird ideas about who can or should be allowed to marry. I do understand that in Idaho a potato is not allowed to marry with another potato. I do understand that in the state of Idaho dogs who wish to do “it,” must be of different sexes. Anyway, Butch and his Attorney General want the Supreme Court to respond to the question: “whether the federal constitution prohibits a stare from maintaining the traditional understanding and definition of marriage as between a man and a woman.” How about answering the following questions?

1. Did the Founding Fathers believe that a white person had the right to keep a black skinned person as a slave?

2. Did they believe that only males could vote?

3. Did they believe that Jews and Catholic could vote? (many states in the 1790s did not allow these people to vote)

And, so on and so on. How about accepting that time changes our views on what is or not legal? Our Founding Fathers did not know about automobiles and speed limits, therefore?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

France, Connexion: “Prestigious Beauty Contest Coming Up”

According to Fox News it features the most beautiful wealthy people of the year.

China, China Daily: “Stay In Style”

IN Texas, that means carry your gun to church.

Sweden, Local: “I Stopped Hair Loss”

Just call me, “baldy.”

They adopted the idea of bleeding leads to health.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Close Pay Gap”

In America that means billionaires are down to only a few billion between themselves.

Young Americans Not “In” History

I am the child of immigrants who made the long voyage from eastern Europe and arrived in the promised land of America. In 1914, ONE OUT OF FOUR AMERICANS WAS AN IMMIGRANT! To be an immigrant of the child of one makes the individual conscious of what is America and the importance of learning about the history of this nation. Actually, I wound up writing a history of the United States of America. I have taught about one thousand teachers who became Social Studies educators. I am most amazed these days how those under the age of 35 lack a sense of the history of this country. They lack a desire to be “in” the history of this land and stand apart lacking a sense of how one is connected to the past. Those who are immigrants, yes, the “illegals,” are much more conscious as to why one desires to live in America and how becoming a citizen is a wondrous event. To be “in” history is to possess an emotional attachment to the promised land of America.

I am NOT referring to learning facts and figures about the past. To be “in” history is to gain an awareness of how the values and ideas of this nation, with all its tragic faults such as slavery and murder of Indians, require a commitment that each and every person in this land enjoy its prosperity. To be “in” history is to be conscious of one’s responsibility to fellow Americans. In other words, to be the exact opposite of ideas spouted by Republicans who believe the story of America is that of those with wealth. The story of America is how individuals worked with their hands and hearts to create a society in which those lacking wealth could work their way up the ladder of prosperity.

As an American my responsibility is to all other Americans. We are brothers and sisters, we are not enemies. And, I classify as “American” all those who reside within its borders, regardless of whether a citizen or not.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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 rarely swing my arms when walking.

The US Army made me confident that my body could handle anything.

I assume the nose evolved to warn us of danger.

At some point in life we feel confident that we are in charge of our life.

Age makes the body dependent on others.

There was never a baby born who was not cute to parents.

Some place finger on nose to ponder what is being said.

These days my main struggle is opening doors.

Days of sorrow for families of those flying planes out of Singapore.

For modern Americans, everything is “the greatest threat facing our society.”

Nazi–Who Me???

Members of the Republican party are aware of every group that President Obama has ever belonged to or talked with because when it comes to checking out the private and public lives of LIBERALS, no stone must be left untouched. Congressman Steve Scalia is from the great state of Louisiana and he wants the world to know that from now on in his role of Majority Whip in the House of Representatives there will be nonstop investigations of whatever Democrats have done or even thought of doing. For some reason, one of those Liberals, checked into his own background. It turns out that in 2002, young Steve gave a talk to members of a white supremacist group that had ties to white supremacists in Europe. The European-American White and Rights Organization-EURO had links to American Nazi David Duke. These folks hate blacks, immigrants and Jews, but what the heck, they do believe that whites are the oppressed people these days.

Steve is rather upset. “For anyone to suggest that I was involved with a group like that is insulting and ludicrous.” He just gave talks to bigots which hardly translates into being a bigot. Then again, he did not know that American Nazi, David Duke was connected to the group. As far as Steve is concerned it is bigots who are out to get him. At least the Republican party can begin the new power knowing it is out in the open that bigots control the legislature!

Texas Rangers Get Bad People

Texas is not only a state but it is also a state of mind. The folks who live in the great state of Texas so enjoy electing men and women to public office who are real AMERICANS! There is a lot of wealth floating around this state and the right folks have most of it. To be a Texan is to live on the right side of our Lord up in the sky. OK, so our Founding Fathers wanted to end the practice of sending to jail those who were not able to pay their debts, but this is modern Texas where no government body out side the borders of the state dare to tell Texans how to run their lives. As of this date, at least six people are in jail for the non-existent crime of not paying off loans on time, and about 1500 face criminal charges for the horrible crime of not paying back money that was borrowed. I do not know if students who owe money to the Federal government will be sent to jail.

Actually, there is a law in Texas which forbids sending to prison those unable to pay debts, but, what the heck, this is Texas and when it comes to matters of money, those with it, are in control. Of course, there is a Federal law which does not allow sending to jail debtors, but how dare that dude from Africa tell Texans who goes or does not go to jail! Next thing the black dude will tell the great state of Texas that it can not kill prisoners. After all, Texas leads the nation in killing prisoners!

Bye Bye Ruble

I am writing in order to assure the people of Russia not to become upset at the prospect that their noble ruble is sort of heading downward. I want to make certain they realize this business with the ruble has nothing to do with our Great and noble leader, God’s gift to the nation of Russia- the one and only Vladimir Putin. Take a deep breath and get a smile on your face, people of Russia. Why?

1. You now have the Crimea. It has been restored to Mother Russia. Which is more important, having the Crimea or a ruble that is worth more?

2. Gays and lesbians no longer wander your streets threatening your children. I assume this problem kept you up at nights.

3. The world is angry at Putin over Ukraine. Isn’t it great to have the world angry and fearful of the Russian people? Back to the good old days of the Cold War!

4. Since the ruble is not worth as much, this means you will cease purchasing things that you do not need. Chalk up another gift from Putin!

Bye bye Ruble, hello Putin and his dictatorship. Just like the days of Joseph Stalin when Russians were feared!!

What’s Going On?

The conclusion of a year should be celebrated with some good news. Hopefully, people are considering the right of we humans to end one year with some good tidings of joy and peace to all mankind. But, things have really gone wacky. Another plane disappeared and now bodies have been floating in the waters of southeast Asia. How or why still another plane from the Singapore area just went off the radar screen is simply beyond the imagination of anyone. Perhaps, this is one for the X-Files. Over in waters around Greece a ship began to burn, a few lives were lost and late yesterday there was a distress call from an alleged “cargo ship” that apparently had a few hundred passengers. They claim that armed men are on board.

After checking with the Republican party and Fox News, it is now clear what is happening:

1. No such plane disasters occurred until Barack Obama became president.

2. Republicans are now in power which has sent terrorist groups employing terror before their arrival. Do you actually think a terrorist wants to confront another filibuster by Ted Cruz??

3. I await another verbal explosion from Rudy Giuliani in which he boasts that if only he were mayor of New York City no such things would occur.
