HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Canada, Toronto Star: “Missing Woman Found”

I guess she is no longer a missing woman.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Coca Cola Wars In Moscow”

I am certain that Vladimir Putin will also win this war.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Come In From The Rain”

Sorry, raindrops are falling on my joyous head.

China, China Daily: “Look Back Always””

Mantra of Republican party.

Norway, Norway Post: “A Little Less Fairy Dust”

This blows me away with hope

Islamic State Fights For Islam

It is a difficult concept for those in many Muslim nations or in Western and Asian nations to grasp, but members of the Islamic State are convinced that by murdering people they adhere to their goal of creasing a modern version of the Caliphate. In their view of the Muslim religion, killing those who oppose the concept of the Caliphate is justified on grounds that only the triumph of this version of Islam can be allowed. I understand that those in the United States of America regard these acts of barbarism as contrary to any form of religion. But members of ISIS or Boko Haram are convinced they are the only hope left in the world that can restore the promise of Islam and return to the glory days when this religion burst upon the world back in the seventh century. In their religious views only Muslims who adhere to the vision of a Caliphate are true Muslims and thus must be killed.

President Obama insists that ISIS is not a Muslim group. Sorry Mr. President, they are. We may disagree with their religious ideas but there every action is motivated by a religious view of the future. To disregard their Muslim center is to ignore why they are prepared to commit suicide in the name of Allah. Five suicide bombers blasted mosques in the Yemen city of Ana’a and murdered 142 people and left 345 wounded. These Muslims believe that in killing fellow Muslims they are carrying forth the dream of a new caliphate which restores the glory of past days. President Obama does not aid the fight against them by denying their religious base. It is up to Muslims to make clear their disagreement with this view of the future of the Muslim religion.

Whatever Happened To Welfare Of The Poor?

There are many reasons why members of the Republican party so love Bibi Netanyahu. Of course, the most important is that this foul mouthed man hates Barack Obama. However, there are other reasons. Bibi has led his nation into increasing poverty and growing disaster in lack of housing or social welfare for the masses. At this point in time about one out of three Israelis qualifies as being poor, and the growth in inequality between those at the bottom or in the middle in Israel is muck akin to the situation in America. People in Israel shout about lack of housing for those who are middle class or in poverty. While hundred of millions are spent on the West Bank to provide settlers taking land from Palestinians, not much is spent to aid those in the rest of Israel to get housing or basic social welfare. Here in America the war against the poor is much more important than the war against Islamic terrorism.

I am a child of the Depression. When Franklin Roosevelt assumed the office of President his initial acts were to get people back to work and within five months there was work for over four million. Today, our government led by Congress refuses to push through legislation that provides decent earnings for those who want to WORK. I forgot, if we damage the lives of millionaires they will refuse to invest their money and jobs will cease to exist. The only certain thing in life is that if one has a million, then one will always get their money working to make more money. Higher wages translates into more money in the hands of consumers to purchase more goods. This is basic economics. The best welfare is raising the minimum wage so people have money to spend.

Bibi Blows More Bullshit

The Fox News candidate for prime minister of Israel is still in power and just like the idiots a that TV station, Bibi is not able to control his output of bullshit. After frightening the people of Israel with his dire words of fear and hate toward those who are Muslims, the BS artist once again shifted the words he had spoken on Sunday to a new version on Friday. “I don’t want a one-state solution. I want a sustainable, peaceful two state-solution. But for that, circumstances have to change. I haven’t changed my policies, what has changed is reality.” JUST LAST WEEK HE PROMISED THERE WOULD NOT BE A TWO-STATE SOLUTION!! I have a hunch that Bibi Netanyahu would go into Arab areas and promise to convert to the Muslim religion if that would produce votes. He is the Israel version of Ted Cruz and Rudy Giuliani, say anything, do anything for a vote!

Bibi does have one problem that he can not bullshit away. The United Nations is not impressed with his bullshit. Maybe Jews buy this load of shit, but members of the UN do not. So, what can occur:

1. The UN Security Council can vote to support the idea of a two-state solution and back it up with the threat of sanctions.

2. The American delegate to that body could be absent or vote for this solution.

3. The International Criminal Court could investigate the deaths in Gaza.

I hate to inform the people of Israel but Israel Jews do not control the world.

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 believe tigers in Siberia are happy when Vladimir Putin is back in Moscow.

I await a law in Texas which gives toddlers in the crib the right to have a gun.

These days I frequently wonder how I got to live in this crazy version of the USA?

I would not be surprised to learn about an alliance of Republicans and ISIS to end the tyranny of OBAMA!

I simply can not fathom the hatred that now exists in America.

Some days I wish to migrate to Denmark and enjoy life with people who are happy, not angry.

I think the Kentucky basketball team should become the new New York Knicks basketball team.

A Shooting In Russia

Russian opposition leader Boris Nemstov is dead. That we can confirm, but everything else that has been written about this murder is confusing to say the least. According to Russian authorities, if one can ever believe Russian authorities, Zaur Dadayev was the man who killed Nemstov. Everyone agrees that he came from Chechnya and has ties to other people in that land. At this point, the story becomes somewhat murky.

1. Dadayev claims he killed Nemmstov because of religious reasons, Nemstov was Jewish.

2. Dadayev claims he killed Nemstov because the Russian supported Charlie Hebdo.

3. Dadayev claims he killed Nemstov for the $85,000.

4. Dadayev claims there was some sort of power struggle in Chechnya and somehow killing Nemstov was part of the mess.

5. Dadayev claims he had some other guys with him. He had to pay them for the job.

Vladimir Putin wants the world to know he was nowhere near Moscow at the time of the murder. I think he was in Siberia with his tigers.

Oh well, one day, we will get to know who did what and why they did it.

There Is Nothing To Fear!

I devoted thirty years of my life to the study of the history of crime in the United States and the world. I taught courses in the history of crime that included members of police departments. If there is one thing that I know is what has happened in the past and present about the issue of crime. At this juncture in American history the rate of crime is at its lowest. Americans today are safer than at any point i n our history. Criminals no longer linger on highways ready to hold up stage coaches and we actually have police forces. The initial police forces in America first appeared about the 1850s and 1860s. Prior to that point no policemen were on the streets of our cities and thus any person was subject to violence at the hands of criminals. Gangs roamed the streets of most American cities and they robbed and killed people. TGhe murder rate in New York City during the 19th century was about ten times the current rate.

So, what is reality to the current frightened American public?

1. There has been no terrorist attack since 9/11.

2. Actually, if normal procedures had been followed in the Bush administration to check on terror groups there never would have been a 9/11.

3. Ironically, in the nineteenth century there were stricter laws about weapons than in current America.

4. Today, anyone can employ the services of companies that provide protection against robbery. If you want to be safe, pick up the phone and get your home secured.

The sky is NOT falling. We are safe and secure. It is the best of times to be alive in modern America if you do not want bad people to kill or rob you!

Rick Perry To Run For President Of ISIS!

There is good news for Texas Governor Rick Perry. If he does not make the cut to run for President of the United States there is a new opportunity awaiting him in ISIS. A new video depicts young boys receiving training in how to fire a weapon and learning that one must die for God. They are told in this video that a good boy is ready and able to confront the “enemies of God.” Examine the record:

1. Rick Perry believes that young people should be trained to carry weapons. ISIS believes this.

2. Rick Perry believes that Barack Obama is the son of the Devil. ISIS believes this.

3. Rick Perry believes in God. ISIS believes this.

4. Rick Perry believes it is never too young to train children in use of weapons. ISIS believes this.

5. Rick Perry would so love to die for God. ISIS agrees with this view.

I wonder if the new eye glasses that Rick Perry wears are simply a secret communication devise that is linked to ISIS headquarters??

Give Students Guns, Not Grades

I sometimes wonder whether or not allowing the people of Texas was among the greatest mistakes in the history of this nation. The Texas legislature is ready to pass a law that allows students in public colleges and universities to come to class with a concealed weapon on their person. I spent fifty years as a teacher which included time in a Harlem junior high school, a small town high school and a few other places. I taught gang leaders in Harlem and according to the state of Texas it would have been OK to allow these kids to come to class with a weapon. I know, the Second Amendment says anyone is allowed to carry a gun anywhere. I thought in Dodge City one had to check your weapons with the sheriff in order to come to town, but that was America then, and now we have a new America.

There are no words one can express about this growing madness in America. We are NOT adhering to the ideas of our Founding Fathers. We are not adhering to the values of Americans in the nineteenth century. We have become a nation of crazy people following crazy ideas that inevitably will result in crazy acts in our colleges.

Bibi, It’s Not Barack!

Bibi Netanyahu will undoubtedly become the next prime minister of the state of Israel. Of course, he will become prime minister and completely lack any concern about one out of five citizens of this country because they are of the Muslim or Christian religion. He sunk to the lowest form of politics in his quest for power. Throughout the campaign he appealed to the forces of hate in Israel who simply do not regard anyone other than a Jew as a human being. I hate to make this analogy, but exactly what was different from the Nazi claim that Jews were a lower race than Netanyahu depicting Palestinians as lacking the qualities of human beings. He argued they were lower forms of people.

President Obama spoke the truth: “The United States and this administration are deeply concerned about the rhetoric that seeks to marginalize Arab Israel citizens” and undermines the democratic process. I am certain many American Jews support Netanyahu. The problem is that it is impossible to be a Jew and hate Arabs. I realize Bibi wants to wait out Obama and expect the next American president will just love his hate. Will that person believe that hate is the path toward Middle East peace?
