HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cheap Work For Sale”

The never ending mantra of American business.

France, Connexion: “Uber Executive Stands Trial”

I assume he used a taxi to get to court.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Psychotic Leader”

This definitely is one role Donald Trump can play,

Russia, Moscow Times: “Golden Toilet Seat”

Fit only for the Great Leader, Putin!

Japan, Japan Times: “Apologize For Oral Crime”

Let me suck on this one.

Boko Haram Continues Being Bonkers

The American media continues reporting horrors from the Middle East while ignoring greater death and destruction in Nigeria. It is estimated that ISIS has murdered about four thousand. Boko Haram in Nigeria has slaughtered at least 7,000. The latest example was murdering 145 Muslims who were praying to conclude the holiday of Ramadan. Let me get this straight, a band of Muslims murdered 145 MUSLIMS who were engaged in the act of prayer!

My confusion stems from the failure of any leading Muslim clerics to condemn such brutality to fellow Muslims. Where are Muslim leaders? Why no Freedom Marchers gathering for the protection of fellow Muslims? Where is the Martin Luther King for Muslims? Or, how about a Nelson Mandela for Africans outside of South Africa??

ONLY IN AMERICA

Every so often having nothing better to do in my life, I make lists as to why America is such an exceptional nation.

1. We are the only industrial nation that does not have paid leave for those having babies.

2. We rank God knows where in our fast trains.

3. We are the only nation that has God on our side.

4. We have absolutely no interest in our infrastructure.

5.We definitely lead the world in the number of peoples seeking the nation’s top job.

6. We are the birth place of Donald Trump, trump that,I dare you!

7. We definitely lead the world in possession of guns. Take that,ISIS!

8. We lead the world in the number of people in prison.

9. We lead the world in the number of people killed by guns.

10.We definitely will not be the place that Jesus comes to when he returns.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Mystery Man”

The guy who places his name in the sweepstakes for the Republican nomination.

Sweden,Local: “Coming Up Short”

I do not think 16 candidates for the presidency are sufficient choices for America.

France, Connexion: “End Mixed Marriages”

Do not allow males to marry female horses?

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Golden Toilet Seat”

Definitely the only one that Donald Trump would sit on.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cheap Work For Sale”

The only kind allowed in America.

Who CaresAbout Environment?

Just about any article that includes any reference to Justice Anthony Scalia includes a line about his wonderful mind that allegedly is the hallmark of this brilliant legal scholar. Justice Scalia wrote the majority opinion in a decision dealing with efforts to curb pollution. The Environment Protection Agency has been seeking to impose limits as to how business enterprises can pollute. Justice Scalia used the argument that imposing such regulations would impair profits of business. In other words any equation dealing with pollution must take care not to impose restrictions as to how much business enterprises can earn in profit.

This from a man who claims to be a legal scholar. If the issue is preserving this planet,then profits be damned! The only equation worth a damn these days is the one which places survival of the planet first and first and first!

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

My dream is to hear the conversation between God and Donald Trump.

The Republican nightmare is having Trump on a stage with other presidential candidates.

There is no question that Donald Trump is the Christmas gift to all gag writers.

I wonder how Donald talks with his children?

Does Donald say, “I trump you” while playing cards?

I would so enjoy hearing a conversation between Trump and Justice Scalia.

I assume Donald is the one who says, “God Bless You.” That is, to God.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Russia, Moscow Times: “Tragically Botched Birth”

Guess which one in Russia?

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Masturbating Men”

Just note name of any Republican candidate,only they do it with mouths!

France, Connexion: “Nuns Take To Road”

At least they are not flying nuns.

Denmark,Copenhagen Post: “Hate That Hate Producer”

Some produce hate, and some produce love, if a Republican, we know which you like

Canada, Toronto Star: “I’m Deeply Ashamed”

For being a member of the human race?

Bobby Jindal -“I’m A Doer”

Chris Christie — “I So Can Build A Bridge”

Marco Rubio– “True Cuban Tales”

Mike Huckabee — “How To Cut Up A Hog?”

Sarah Palin –“Hunting Liberals In Alaska”

Bullshit!

France, Connexion: “Banner Cherry Season”

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

Our feelings about the American Congress?

Australia,Canberra Times: “Time To Sell Children”

I’ll take one blond and two black haired ones.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if there is a large enough stage in America to handle the Republican clown act?

Dylann Roof is not an “abnormal” person, simply a more active Fox News viewer.

Some day Americans will wake up to realize — we in this land are ALL immigrants.

Jon Stewart must be rethinking the decision to end and miss the Clown action.

Each day another angry young man murders.

Republicans should admit that no one can trump Donald Trump in stupidity.

I wonder if I can join the Clown act?
