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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder what ever happened to common sense in America.

These days there are 100 and one Secretary of States in America.

Heaven would be a life without emails.

Bibi Netanyahu is anything but a Jew.

I often wonder how America became this hating nation?

America could use a George Washington who loved America more than his state of Virginia.

These days the inmates run the asylum of Congress.

Wither Pope Francis?

Pope Francis recently made a remark about the possibility that he may not be around for a long time. After all, he is not a young man and his life expectancy indicates a decade of future life for this good man. He now must become concerned about his legacy. Sorry, once in heaven one can not do earthly good deeds. So, what can this good man do before death?

1. He must address the reality that modern Catholics in Europe and the US are simply not on the same page about birth control.

2. He must confront the gap between the Vatican and abortion.

3. He must confront the gap between the Vatican and modern nations on the issue of female role in the church.

What could he do?

1. Select modern thinking men to become Cardinals.

2. Confront the issue of gays openly and welcome them into the church.

3. Remember that it was Catholic churches in America which first integrated churches and schools.

Make some dramatic move about one of these issues!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

A Republican is to ignorance as a camel is to water.

“Trampling the Constitution” is an inborn expression to Republicans when they do it.

I have lost all respect for Senator John McCain who was raised to serve the commander-in-chief.

Some Muslim children flee to death in Syria.

Some black American children meet death on the streets of America.

I so long wait for a Spring of Peace.

France, Connexion: “Elephants Need Help”

Tough tusks.

Norway,Norway Post: “Reasons To Be Happy”

None of my children belongs to the Tea Party!

Oklahoma, Where The Winds Of Hate Sweep The Plains

Confession, I never belonged to any fraternity during my years in college. I was from a poverty background and I sort of went to college in order to learn. I never had the opportunity to sit around on Saturday night with the “guys” and booze up and assault girls and have a jolly old time away from the books and professors. The guys at Sigma Alpha Epsilon at the University of Oklahoma decided to guzzle beer and sing songs. One of the songs told one and all black guys that this bastion of white Anglo-Saxon men did not want any “niggers” in their fair and white house. Heck, the house mother, even sang along with the guys because she thought it was only polite to join in with the boys. Oh, she now says that she loves boys of all skin colors, but it would have been impolite not to sing along with the boys.

Parker Rice issued an apology. “It was wrong and reckless.”Lewis Pettit insists the entire episode can be blamed on alcohol. I thought that alcohol released one’s inner feelings. Everyone of these boys now feels sorry. I wonder if they are sorry not to have allowed black men into their white domain? Just think how this episode in their lives will play out when they seek jobs? Word of advice, they can always apply to the Tea Party as a candidate for Congress!

Interview With ISIS

I decided it was time to get out of the rut of daily life and bring some excitement into my life so I headed off to Syria to join in the fun.

M: Look dude, I want to get some action. Howl do I get into ISIS?

I: Are you looking to fight with us or be a subject for a video?

M: I’m a fighting guy from the streets of the Bronx, New York and I would so love to wander around dressed in black.

I: We are not interested in jokers, do you believe in our group?

M: Let me get this straight, if I get into the gang, I get a gun, I get to blast away day and night. Heck, that is what we do in the NRA!

I: But, are you a devout Muslim?

M: Muslim, schmuslim, who cares. The important thing is that I can finally be with a group of cool dudes.

I: But, this is a group for Muslims who follow Allah.

M: I have a hunch that Allah did not carry around high powered guns and blast one and all.

I: Are you mocking the Prophet?

M: Hell, no. Just show me the future. Of course, I hope that some people are still around in the future.

I: But, why exactly, do you wan to join our group?

M: Black clothes, shooting and shooting and my pick of the girls. Man, that sounds like heaven.

I: I do not believe you have the spirit to be a member of ISIS.

M: Well, if I can’t be with you guys, I guess I can head to the NRA and exercise my right to blast away.
