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 suspect that Fox News had to do some twisting to prove that black kids at a pool party were a threat to cops.

In Texas, the first response to anything is to wave a gun.

I was raised in the slums of New York where only a few crazy guys carried a gun.

No one ever caught Al Capone with a weapon on him!

We are the only free nation in the world which is free about who can carry guns.

Do you ever wonder how we came to become this nation of weapons?

I did fire many weapons while in the army, but since that time have never gotten near one again.

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

UK,Guardian: “Songs For Extremists”

In America it always begins with the line, Barack Obama is..”

Russia, Moscow Times: “Tragically Botched Birth”

Thumbs down for Mr. Snowden.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think it is time for Herman Cain to return to the halls of battle.

I wonder if there is something that Barack Obama is not responsible for?

Barack Obama never understood the importance of a President to talk WITH the American people.

With only a single Republican female in the race, bring in some gals.

Hillary Clinton is acting the grandma role quite well these days.

Has anyone considered asking George H.W. Bush to enter the race, he only served one term!

On Goodwin’s Law

There is a law which recently has come to my attention. According to Goodwin’s Law, “as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving the Nazis or Hitler approached one.”

How about a few other laws?

1. If Rick Santorum speaks longer than five minutes, he invariably will make a nasty comment about Pope Francis and bad scientists.

2. If Jeb Bush makes a speech, he will, at some moment, refer to his brother, George, and get in hot water.

3. If Ted Cruz opens his mouth for more than two minutes the issue of what exactly did he learn at Harvard enters the picture.

4. If Sarah Palin makes any comment, at some point someone will wonder why John McCain ever selected her in 2008 will arise.

5. If Rick Perry appears wearing glasses, someone will make a comment about his “new approach.”

Stopsky’s Final Law, allow any candidate for the Republican Party to speak, and within one minute there is a reference to Barack Obama as the blame for Iraq problems.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Iran, Tehran Times: “Iran Sells More Pistachios Than US”

See what happens when you elect dudes from Africa to head America!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Know Your Place”

This is Putin Land, and we do what the boss says!

USA, aol,com: “Goose Attacks Drone”

God loving Americans can not allow our nation to be attacked by drones, send in the Texas National Guard.

Sweden, Local: “Death Test”

I guess if I pass then I live.

UK, New Statesmen: “Play The Hitler Card”

Just send in the little corporal and clean up the mess in Syria.

The Real Sorrow Of FIFA

The media is all upset at bribery and corruption among FIFA leaders, but few are focusing on the real horror of this group of crooks. They award nations the right to hold the World Cup, but rarely place any conditions on the nation that receives this billion dollar gift. Qatar will be hosting the World Cup in 2022. It is a small country, but has gobs of oil so when it comes to billions, head for this land. Unfortunately, its population is not accustomed to hard physical labor and this task is outsourced to poor people from African or Asian lands. These men and women do the tough physical tasks while the native born folk sort of supervise the work. As of this moment any stadiums or other facilities are being build by imported labor.

The last count is, as this moment, about 1,200 workers have died while doing this hard labor. These people are allowed into Qatar, but have a hard time leaving. Their passport is confiscated by the boss and this prevents anyone complaining about work conditions, and God knows, the idea of a labor union would get anyone shot on the spot. A report by the International Trade Confederation estimated by the time all construction is ended, about 2200 people will be dead due to bad working conditions!

THIS is the real horror of corruption in FIFA!

The Stranded Immigrants

The history of humanity is about humans wandering from one area to another. After all, we all came from some African immigrants who thousands of years ago left a warm climate and headed to all parts of this planet. The United States of America is simply a collection of immigrants from Siberia and many areas in Europe. At this moment, the European Union is confronting the issue of immigrants. The mess in the northern part of Africa has sent thousands fleeing gunmen and oppression and poverty Hardly, a new story in the history of humanity. EU Migration Commissioner Dimitri Avramopoulos is calling upon each and every member of the group to lend a hand to Italy and Greece which currently are the destination of African refugees.

Actually, these people are technically asylum seekers and they want some port of aid for their misery. Germany and France oppose the plan to share among all EU nations the refugee problem. He argues that the burden is simply too much for Italy and Greece. After all, it is Germany that has imposed stringent economic restrictions on Greece, but now refuses to aid this nation. Oh, the actual number of refugees for France is 6,752 and for Germany it is, 8,763.

France, Connexion: “Police Stage Carjacking”

So, why the headlines, is this really news?

Russia, Moscow Times: “Polar Bears In Moscow”

Oh well, Vladimir has to bare his chest and go into battle!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I would not be surprised if Texas allows anyone to walk around with a missile.

I would not be surprised if police in Texas are denied to wear weapons that might threaten innocent people.

My greatest confusion is why 90% of Americans who do NOT have guns insist that guns should be legal.

I think we need a shootout at the Republican convention among those seeking the nomination. Last one standing, is it.

Sad reading stories about former Congressman Hastert who paid for past homosexual activity.

When does Sarah Palin throw her gun into the ring?

Say, whatever happened to Herman Cain?

FIFA DAYS AND NIGHTS

I confess to having been raised to play sports that are really sports rather than sports in which men and women run around kicking a damn ball. I admit to having absolutely no interest in the sport that is known in most parts of the world as, “football.” To me it has always been soccer. The media these days does not report which ball is being kicked by which guy as much as discussing how some guys-no gals– have ben kicking around money in order to decide where balls are going to be kicked. American Attorney General Loretta Lynch has initiated indictments of a few dozen guys who run FIFA because they took bribes in order to decide where the World Cup would be played.At the current figure at least 47 corruption charges have been filed by her office. According to Lynch, “They were expected to uphold the rules that keep soccer honest. Instead they corrupted the business of the world cup to serve the interests of themselves.”

These guys have now learned they cannot kick around this tough woman. She intends to send them to jail where they can kick the bars around. These men come across as a bunch of government officials who enjoy receiving goodies from lobbyists. Only, these lobbyists were government officials!
