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.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Hugging another makes sense when it is cold and sex sure makes even more sense!

See the refugees, sink the boat!

Story Of Mysterious Plane

x37B There is no doubt that a mysterious plane is being sent into space. We can now reveal the secret about this so-called X-37B plane. The government is telling people that it is “an electric propulsion device that produces thrust by ionizing and accelerating a noble gas, usually xenon.” Well, that is the “official”explanation, but this correspondent knows what this story is all about.

1. Barack Obama did not come from Kenya, as Republicans claim. He was born and raised on the planet of Xul.

2. Note that Obama has no loyalty to the American people, let alone to those on this planet.

3. He is an advanced agent of Xulians and his one job in life is preparing the way for an alien invasion.

4. Has this man displayed any interest in the American people? Has this man done whatever he could do to destroy our nation?

The answers to these questions are: NO! The X-37B is being sent back to the planet Xul in order to bring scouts whose goal is preparing for the future invasion of planet Earth!! By the way,Xulians are black skinned life forms!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Today is Wednesday, so who is the latest Republican running for president?

Perhaps, we should organize a shooting match and the one who hits the most bulls eyes, gets the Republican nomination?

New qualification for public office in America-serve your nation in the armed forces?

Just think it is only about seventeen months to the vote for president, how much bull shit will be laid until that date?

If you are black and do not want to be shot by police, wear a Biker jacket.

I think God is on a vacation from this planet.

Oh well, Hillary has become one of the folks eating breakfast at the local diner.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think Jeb bush should divorce his brother if he wants to win an election.

I do not believe a single Republican candidate ever served in the armed forces, but they sure want to be a general.

Always take a deep breath before sending someone off to die.

I have mixed feelings about the death penalty.

There sure is a heck of water on this planet but God sure made a boo boo in making so little of it drinkable.

I never did see the reason to have a beautiful lawn, then again, I was raised on the streets of New York.

I doubt that God would take a vacation on this planet.

The Trouble In Africa

There is one idea which is ignored by those commenting about the lack of democracy within Africa, and that is the possibility that Africans at this stage of historical development do not desire the ideas of democracy. Robert Mugabe has been head man of Zimbabwe since 1980 and he desires for one more term in order to bring prosperity to his nation. After all, how can anyone develop a vibrant democratic society in only 35 years? President Pierre Nujkvunzizi was overthrown in a coup in Burundi only to stage a coup against General Niyombare who overthrew him. There are times in African politics when the game of democracy is somewhat like a game of musical chairs. What is wrong with Africa?

1. The continent has failed to bring forth leaders such as Nelson Mandela.

2. The few democratic leaders who were able to gain power failed to mentor the next generation of leaders.

3. Corruption has become the norm, not the exception in virtually all African nations.

4. Perhaps, the basic issue is failure to create nations that bound people into one society.

It is also time to quit blaming ‘IMPERIALISM” for the failures of modern African societies.

Africa needs leaders who will end corruption and share the wealth with the masses of people.

Republicans believe in myths, the rest of us believe in reality.

Ted Cruz who opposes special treatment for Hispanics, termed himself, Hispanic, on the entry form to Harvard.

In discussing the Middle East, one wonders, where have all the good guys gone?

I suspect, “gone to graveyards, everyone.”

These days, hard to differentiate between, Jeb and George.

I wonder if we will enjoy a post Fox News era?

These days, I so miss Sarah Palin. At least she was funny stupid.

Four years ago, Herman Cain, today, Ben Carson, the necessary black dumbbell.
