HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Anti-Theft Xmas Trees”

So, Santa, keep your hands to yourself!

Italy, Local: “In Italy, God Plans To Look Away”

Is that good or bad news for the Vatican?

Norway, Norway Post: “Effort To Promote Human Rights”

This is one story that has nothing to do with Kim Jong-un!

USA, aol: “What You Need To Know About About Gun Club?”

Oh well, it is just a matter of time before you WILL know about the gun club.

UK, Guardian: “Stay In Style”

There will be no changes in the style of Republican congressmen next year.

The Man With Balls

It has taken at least six years but there are signs that Barack Obama has finally decided that being President of the United States requires standing up got ideas rather than being the man who seeks to avoid controversy. Yes, he did fight for the idea of national health insurance, but the Obama of 21014 might have fought for a law that was progressive. Perhaps, the Obama of 2014 in 2009 would simply have expanded Medicare to include all Americans rather than creating a complex law that took thousands of pages to describe how all Americans might be covered for their medical expenses. Today, he has ended the foolish ban on relations with Cuba even though his action has unleashed the forces of stupidity. For example:

1. Marco Rubio insists that having relations with Cuba makes the Castro boys even more powerful. I have yet to hear Marco insisting that we end relations with Communist China.

2. Fox News insists the Castro boys will make life terrible for the people of Cuba. I guess that is why thousands are marching in Havana in joy.

Barack, stand up for what is right, and explain it to Americans. That is what great American presidents Do!

Donald Trump On Whatever

Frankly, there has been an amazing silence from the red headed man who simply knows everything about everyone and when he speaks, those around must stand at attention and listen to his words of wisdom. As I recall, Donald Trump was a fervent supporter of a man named, George Bush. Donald was quick to appear on Fox News in order to support his leader against unfair attacks by those LIBERALS AND SOCIALISTS who inhabit the Democratic Party. Silence is not the ordinary stance of a man who regards himself as God’s gift to humanity. Jeb Bush of the Bush family has decided to investigate the possibility that we Americans might just desire his Bush like knowledge as our next President. Obviously, this did not sit well with Donald since Jeb forgot to check with him.

“The last thing we need is another Bush. Obama has been a terrible President, but Bush likewise was a terrible President. We have two beauties there so I am not a fan of the Bush group.” However, I am certain he is a fan of the Trump group. I hate to tell Donald but not a single important Republican is worried about being fired by Donald. He might just go and build another casino that he can close.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

China, China Daily: “Dead On The Internet”

Sounds like a good place to die.

USA, aol: “Torturers Heroes To Cheney”

At least it shows that Cheney is loyal to his comrades.

Russia, Moscow Times: “”A New Start”

In Putin Russia that means invading a new country.

Sweden, Local: “Snow Shortages Moves Ski Races”

Have you guys considered Siberia, they could use some money.

France, Connexion: “Train Conductors Start Strike”

At least the engineers are working.

The Horror Inn Pakistan

I confess to being unable to cease thinking about the recent horror in Pakistan where suicide bombers from the Taliban murdered over 100 children and wounded another hundred. The most horrible picture was from the Pakistan Taliban where a group of men are so excited at the massacre of MUSLIM CHILDREN! I simply do not understand how any person who believes in a religion would jump for joy at the murder of children from their religion. I have spent hours thinking about this event and nothing makes sense to me. I do grasp that the children had fathers who were enemies of the Taliban,but why pick on the children? I confess to being raised in New York City in which gangsters, under no condition would ever murder children or wives of their enemies. The rule of my childhood was that one could not pick on children of those you hate.

OK, Taliban leaders are besides themselves with joy at these murders. Fellows, you will have a lot of explaining to do when you get up there in the sky, and I can guarantee there will not be any virgin gals for you!!

Bush Judge Speaks About Presidential Power

Former President George Bush drew upon use of presidential power to make executive decisions twice as many times as the current person in the White House and during the 1980s the sainted and beloved Ronal Reagan allowed millions of Hispanic illegal immigrants to remain in the United States of America. For some strange reason members of the Democratic Party did not seek to charge those Presidents with violation of the United States Constitution nor did they discuss the need to impeach a president, Actually, former President George Bush drew upon an interesting manner of signing bills passed by Congress. He would sign the bill and make it a law but then added some words in which he would offer HIS interpretation as to what the law meant!

Judge Anthony Seward, who was appointed by George Bush has decided to offer his interpretation of the office of the President. He now claims that President Obama’s Executive decision to protect illegal immigrants is unconstitutional even though the man who appointed hid did it more frequently. Oh, Judge Seward has been removed from hearing cases due to his temperament and bias. Gee, I wonder if that bias showed up in his decision!

Horror In Pakistan!

I confess my ignorance about human life on this planet. Every so often an event will occur which simply makes no sense. Yesterday in Pakistan some Taliban suicide bombers entered a school and proceeded to murder 126 children and adults as well as wound over a hundred. They even burned a teacher to death while his students watched. They were eventually killed by Pakistan soldiers. The event occurred at the Peshawar Army School. I assume the murders were of children whose fathers served in the armed forces. The Taliban already is hailing these killings as an example of what they consider to be serving the cause of the Muslim religion. Please don’t get me wrong, Muslims murder and boast of being religious just as Germans killed 30,000,000 and boasted they were serving God. Over in Asia the Japanese murdered millions and also made clear they were children of God.

I do not understand:

1. How young Muslims can go on a jihad knowing they will be serving in a process that results in the deaths of Muslims.

2. Young Muslims who are attracted to death of Muslims, no, I mean the MURDER OF MUSLIMS.

3. Why at this very moment teenagers are sharing emails about how wonderful it will be to go on a jihad.

I do not understand these people anymore than I will ever completely understand the minds of Nazi murderers who could bash in the head of a baby.

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!

Kettle Calls Kettle Black

The expected occurred in the United Nations when the Ambassador from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea appeared and made a speech in which the representative from North Korea informed the world there was a nation that violated the norms of human behavior and it sure was not the land of Kim Jong-un. According to Ja Song-nam the United States of America has committed the “greatest human rights violations in the world.” I assume the speech was given with a straight face. We can expect similar speeches from the Taliban or ISIS or any number of Taliban style groups who will not crack a smile as they shout about violations of human rights committed by the United States of America. If we Americans behave in ways that violate human rights we can expect to be charged with the same crimes that were committed by those who do the shouting.

Frankly, for the past decade leaders of the United States of America have demonstrated a complete lack of understanding how “enhanced interrogation” will play out on the world screen. We used to have something called the Voice of America which spouted our view about the evils of communism. In many European nations there were millions who cited our policies to black Americans as examples of hypocrisy when we attacked communists as evil. Sorry, Dick Cheney, you may play at being righteous on Fox News but on the world stage you are the personification of evil.

Armed And Dangerous

There is one consistent story which will appear just about every week in the United States of America. This story is about a white male who is Christian and he has weapons that were purchased legally in this nation and he has decided to kill someone. Quite often the someone is a member of his family. Bradley Stone is on the run in Pennsylvania after he murdered six members of his family including his wife and child. NO, the killer who lurks on our streets is NOT a Muslim fanatic, the killer is one of us. Sorry, the killer is rarely a Jew. He is ALWAYS A CHRISTIAN. and his skin is WHITE. There is something ironic in this certainty of life that the “greatest threat” to our lives is form one of us.

The most ironic aspect of this story is that the killer obeyed the laws of our society and purchased his weapons of mass destruction in perfectly legal manner. Eventually, Bradley Stone will be caught and most likely die in a shoot out. Just another story among the 30,000 Americans who will die this year as a result of gun shootings. And, yet, we decry Muslims or Blacks as threats to our lives!!
