HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

France, Connexion: Teacher Strike”

Best news for students. No more teachers, no more homework!

UK,Guardian: “Veterans Gather At Dunkirk”

Hopefully, no Nazi planes blasting away as in 1940.

Sweden, Local: “Boss Resigns Over Theft”

This sure did not occur in a Wall Street firm.

Norway, Norway Post: “Fewer Foreign Criminals”

I sure wish that I am robbed by a native born American!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Refuse Duel With Wolves”

OK, just send in President Putin, he will take them on bare chested!

So, What’s New In Israel?

Israel has a prime minister and it has a President, but the president does not possess much power. We all know that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to bomb and take over land that originally was allocated to Palestinians by that organization known as the United Nations. Bibi refuses to have anything to do with the Hamas government in Gaza that originally in a democratic election gained power, because they are evil “terrorists.” However, President Reuven Rivlin has introduced the horrible idea that Israel might negotiate with the Hamas government. “I do not recoil at the idea of negotiating with any willing party.” Let me note:

1. The US and Israel have no problem with negotiating with China which is a dictatorship that engages in terrorist behavior toward Muslims in its country as well as against those in Tibet.

2. The US and Israel negotiate with Putin Russia a government that engages in terrorist behavior against its own people.

3. The US and Israel have relations with the dictatorship in Vietnam.

4. The US and Israel have relations with the government of Myanmar which engages in vast terror against Rohingyas in their nation.

I will not list African nations which contain governments that engage in terrorism and have relations with these two nations.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer comments on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

American leaders always accuse others of sponsoring terrorism, how about looking in the mirror?

I wonder if there is a stage that will hold all Republicans seeking the presidential nomination?

With only one woman, Carly Fiorina, we need Sarah Palin back on the stage of stupidity.

I promise to pray for our wealthy folks in order to prove that I am a good American.

Bikers riot and kill, and they are handled without firing a 134 bullets, I wonder why?

Fox News news, white is right, black is bad!

I’m for Bernie Sanders for president

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

USA, NY Post: “Body Found Behind NY Restaurant”

I assume someone was throwing out the trash.

Egypt, al-Ahram: “Belly Dancer Acquitted”

I’ll shake on this one.

Norway, Norway Post: “Help Me I’m Poor”

Not in the good old Republican USA!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Bless Gay Marriage”

In Russia, they bless gays with a fist.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Join The Club”

In Texas, the only club people want to join is one that welcomes guns

Innocent Girls Bound For Death

Among the strange stories in the world today is that of young Muslim females who spend their lives on social media and come away with loving thoughts for ISIS. Frankly, it amazes me how young girls could watch videos of people having their heads chopped off and come away feeling sympathy for those doing the chopping. At this moment there are dozens, if not hundreds of young females living in western nations who have saved up their money and purchased a one way ticket to hell. They want to “do something” for their religion. They want to head for Syria or Iraq and give comfort and their bodies to Muslim warriors who murder and destroy. They want to have babies with these men who murder and destroy.

I admit to being confused. I simply cannot comprehend how viewing pictures of innocent people, including children being shot, can inspire a young girl to help those who commit atrocities. There is some deep need inside these girls for meaning, for a sense of accomplishment, that can only be attained by aiding those who kill. I do live in a strange world of social media!

USA, aol: “Pizzeria Robbed”

Are you sure it was not a take-out order?

UK,Guardian: “Unusual Powers Revealed”

Republicans can reduce the amount of money coming in and also reduce the national debt.

Egypt, al Arahm: “Court Bans Porn On Website”

Anywhere else is OK.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Foreign Anti-Torture Experts Expelled”

Heck, this is Putin Russia where torture if legal!

France, Connexion: “French Are Big Drinkers”

I will toast that statement!

Benghazi Forever

It is Saturday and Republicans want to make clear to the American people that the major issue confronting this nation is BENGHAZI. As you recall, FOUR Americans died because terrorists invaded the US Embassy int hat town which is located in the nation of Libya. For some reason, the Secretary of State failed to do her job and station herself, along with her weapon, inside the Embassy to blast away at a terrorist group which was entering the facilities. It is clear the primary responsibility of a Secretary of State is to wander from Embassy location to Embassy location in order to ensure there is tight security.

On October 23, 1983, terrorists blew up a Marine barracks in the city or Beirut in Lebanon and the end result was the death of TWO HUNDRED FORTY ONE Americans. Not a single member of the Democratic Party in Congress blamed President Reagan for that disaster. The event happened on a Sunday morning. I want to know why Ronald Reagan was not at his post with his machine gun blasting away at those terrorists!

Believe it or not, men die all over the world, and no President is ever held responsible for those deaths. BUT, Hillary Clinton is held responsible for the deaths of four people. Isn’t it time for Republicans to give this story a rest? I doubt if a single Republican could even place the location of Benghazi on a map!

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 am upset that Rick Santorum has given up his sweater for a jacket. He was so folksy.

Why not dress all young Americans in Biker jackets and end violence –by police?

I must confess that I feel abandoned since Sarah Palin ceased running for office. She gave me such joy.

Oh, for the days of unions when workers earned enough to buy a house!

Few under the age of 30 give a damn about wages paid to those who serve them.

I really enjoyed the last show of David Letterman.

I was raised in the era when the New York Yankees were a major team. Alas, this era is over!

World In CHAOS!

It has now become a must statement on Fox News that the sky is falling and CHAOS reigns around the world since Barack Obama became our president. Most scholars of international relations believe the current era of human kind is among the most peaceful in the history of this planet, but Fox News insists that violence is growing due to failure of President Obama to send in the troops in order to reduce violence. I trust you remember when the great President George Bush sent in the troops to end violence in the Middle East. As I recall, in the year 2001 there was not a single war going on in the Middle East. And, the war in Afghanistan was over with Russian troops having left. Oh, there were some dictators, but there was not a single war going on in this region in the year, 2001.

Examine the present:

There is not a major conflict occurring on the continent of Asia. There are some guerrilla forces opposing governments in Thailand and Myanmar, but no other conflict.

The only conflict in Latin America is in Columbia where guerrilla forces are currently engaged in negotiations with the government to end the conflict. Mexico is a basket case of violence, but the fight is between drug lords and the government. But, no other Latin American violence.

There is not a single war in Europe except for the conflict in Ukraine. This conflict involves a few thousand and dozens of people die each month, but this is not a major conflict.

There are conflicts in Nigeria in which a few thousand Boko Haram nut cases rape and murder. Aside from some conflicts over who is the president of a nation, there are no major wars on the African continent except for northern regions like Libya.

So, where is the chaos? Believe it or not the only major conflicts in the world are in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya. None of these conflicts arose during the administration of a Democrat as President.
