HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

China, China Daily: “Chinese Officials Charged With Graft”

I never knew that taking graft was wrong. After all, they run the entire government.

France, Connexion: “Ferry Hits Wall”

We are able to report the wall is in fine shape and will recover.

UK, Guardian: “More Storms On Way”

You ain’t seen nothing yet until this Republican Congress gets started helping the wealthy!

Australia, Canberra Times: “Sex At 72″

Frankly, not much since it is hard getting you know what, up!

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “91 Year Old Dead Woman Awakens”

Did FDR Win the election??

Let’s Impeach Black Dude

It is less than ten days and already some Republicans are muttering the word, Impeachment. In order to assist these gallant defenders of our Constitution, let me list some reasons why Barack Obama should be Impeached!

1. He was born in Africa. I have yet to have him produce proof that he was not born in Africa. Check with the eminent Constitutional authority, Donald Trump if you doubt this.

2. He chews gum at important international meetings.

3. He wears weird clothes at international meetings.

4. He is the first politician in American history who told a lie!

5. He refuses to hold press conferences.

6. He is the first American President to draw upon Executive powers. The First!

7. He refuses to compromise by agreeing to all demands of his opponents!

8. He is the first American President to send soldiers overseas without approval of Congress.

The bottom line is that Barack Obama does not like the Republican Party!!

LET’S PRETEND

Sometimes, my mind enters the world of, what if:

1. What if 80% of Americans voted?

2. Wealthy people paid at the same tax rate as the middle class?

3. Fast food workers got paid $20 an hour so they could buy consumer goods?

4. The Supreme Court ruled a candidate for President had to be born in America. Good bye Ted Cruz!

5. Obama held weekly press conferences and talked with Americans.

6. Obama appointed a Republican as Attorney General?

So much for pretend, unfortunately, I live in reality!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Death means you cannot discuss your death with others.

Table of senior at McDonald’s means at least one brought donuts.

Tall blond woman wearing boots, definitely gets my attention.

Modern lunch with family means it is a meeting of iPads.

I wonder if they have a buffet in heaven.

In every end there is a new beginning.

Barack Obama is the great Miscommunicator.

Nurses enjoy patients who laugh.

Some days I think God took the detour.

Elephant In Your House

For decades Republicans are the party of elephants. See an elephant, and one automatically thinks of Republicans since this is the party of that large creature who wanders the forests of Africa. A Republican Senator has introduced a bill that would prevent any GOVERNMENT from impairing the right of free enterprise in Africa. After all, poachers are simply using their 2nd Amendment rights to shoot and kill any creature in the land. If hunters can shoot squirrels, why not elephants? The NRA is supporting this bill and warning any legislator who opposes killing elephants will make clear they are on the side of liberals seeking to take away 2nd Amendment rights. Just read the Constitution which makes clear our Founding Fathers opposed making laws that prevent killing any creature in the forest.

1. Elephants live in the forest.

2. Hunters hunt in the forests.

3. If elephants don’t want to be killed, just leave their tusks on the ground.

Oppose this vill, and you oppose freedom for Americans to hunt and kill creatures in the forest.

On the other hand, how about a new symbol for Republicans: A hand holding a gun aloft??

Terrorism Goes On

America is sw e pt by hysteria over the death of ONE person due to Ebola, and the deaths of a few people at the hands of ISIS. At the same time, across the Pacific, thousands of people have died at the hand of terrorists. No, they were not murdered by Muslim fanatics. No, they were not killed by ISIS. They were murdered because they were Muslims! Christians and Jews insist that Muslims are controlled by a desire to kill infidels. Sorry, history proves that all religious groups kill those who are different,

The nation of Myanmar is basically composed of those who are Buddhists. A hundred years ago Muslim migrants came to what was then called, Burma. During the past ten years, under the leadership of Buddhist monks, mobs have attacked the Muslim rohingya. For some strange reason, not a peep out of Fox News about these jihadists. Not a word from Bill Maher who believes the Muslim religion fosters sectarian hatred. Over 100,000 Rohingya have lost their homes and businesses and now hover in refugee camps. Over ten thousand have been murdered. Reality, All religions contain the seed of sectarian hatred.

Say, Whatever Happened to Ebola?

Prior to the recent election hardly an hour went by without Fox News without cute, pert, blond haired, science experts warning
America America that death lurked in their lives. If your fellow worker coughed, you probably ran home screaming in fear. According to Fox News, ebola was a greater threat than the Depression, World War II, or Russian atomic bombs. The Mayor of New York City announced the ONE ebola victim is now cured.

There never was,or is, an ebola concern. This hysteria was created by the Republican Party and Fox News in order to win the election of 2014. Give them credit, the hysteria worked. Unfortunately, President Obama allowed this fiasco to succeed. I can guarantee the ebola crisis will soon disappear from Fox News. Look forward to the latest installment of the Obamacare crisis.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Canada, Toronto Star: “I Will Miss Him”

Say, whatever happened to Barack Obama?

China, China Daily: “Strengthen Graft Fight”

Never abandon the right to get a bit of graft, why else get elected?

France, Connexion: “Ruling On Flight Delays”

Yes, they are legal!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

I will fight for justice today and tomorrow!

Sweden, Local: “Stockhold Therapy Tax”

If only we had such a therapy tax in America for members of Congress!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

A man walked by me laughing, how about making laughter compulsory when out public?

I learned to drive in my twenties, is that the reason I struggle backing into a parking spot?

I drove my wife to the airport at 5:00 am. when there was no traffic, we need 5:00 a.m. traffic throughout the day.

I always feel awkward when in an “upscale plaza”

When I was a child an overdue book in the library resulted in a penny fine. Ah, the good old days.

A “red light” day for me means hitting every red light.

I always dip into the dish of pennies that one can take to use for purchasing a bagel.

Rainy days are times to reflect upon life and God.

I have the ability to wreck an umbrella very easily.

Is Barack Obama A Radical?

The day after the slaughter of the Democratic party, Senator Mitch McConnell made clear to President Barack Obama that he will not tolerate anymore of that man’s radical ideas. He wants Obama to “move to the center.” As I was raised as a Socialist and remain one at heart even though I recognize that modern life has made what we term to be capitalism or Socialism incapable of functioning in a modern economic system. to call Obama a radical or person of the “left” indicates that Mitch has absolutely no idea who is this man we call, President Obama. He is a man of the Center, and he has never been on the left. In reality he has has been a conservative to anyone who is a “radical.” Evidence?

1. A radical would have pushed for a health care plan that was run by the federal government such as Medicare. Instead, Obama created a plan that makes private health care companies making gobs of money. Obama loves the corporate world.

2. A radical would have from day one of his administration pushed for work plans that provided jobs for the unemployed.

3. A radical would simply in 2009 have pushed through an immigration plan–when Democrats controlled Congress– to offer a plan to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

4. A radical in 2009 would have pushed through a plan to lower student loan debts.

5. And, certainly a “radical” would NOT have made tougher the war on drugs that sends thousands to jail.

Barack Obama is a man of the center.
