Moments To Cherish

The coming months will be filled with interesting events on our political scene. Following are some moments that will fill me with joy.

1. Rotund Chris Christie shouting, “When I mean something, I mean it!”

2. Mike Huckabee getting on his knees to pray to God.

3. Carly Florin on a stage with fifteen men. This definitely makes her come across as beautiful.

4. Ted Cruz appearing wrapped in the Confederate flag.

5. Rick Perry standing next to Rick Santorum which makes it impossible to know which of the Ricks is speaking.

6. Jeb Bush at some moment discussing George Bush.

7. George Pataki just standing there looking like George Pataki.

8. Donald Trump shouting, “I AM the one God desires, I paid him money for the endorsement!”

9. Any words uttered by Ben Carson, at least he adds some color to the event.

10. The custodian of the place who just wandered onto the platform to clean it.

Confederate Flag Is Lowered

Confession. When I was in the US Army during the Korean War most of my buddies were boys from North Carolina or Georgia or Virginia and we usually had humorous encounters about being “Johnny Rebs” or “Damn Yankees.” We did love one another and would never abandon one another but the Johnny Rebs insisted they so loved the Confederate flag. In reality,the only flag they pledged allegiance to was the stars and stripes. I have read about one thousand dealing with the subject of the Civil War. I DO understand the emotions that conflict arouses in many Southern hearts. But, I was part of the process when we integrated the 7th Army in Germany and all my Southern buddies welcomed Negro troops into the barracks and expected those from the South to play on the Confederate team in a basketball game.

On the day Robert E.Lee surrendered his forces, a crowd rushed to the White House. Abraham Lincoln came out. He pointed to a band and said.”Play Dixie.” Playing the song of Johnny Rebs did not mean Lincoln was ignoring slavery. He just wanted everyone to move on from the Civil War.

It is about time all Americans did so.

AIPAC Strikes Again

In 1967, Israel armed forces launched a surprise attack upon several Arab nations including Jordan and Egypt. Historians even today argue as to whether or not there was a real threat of an attack by Egypt upon Israel. It is doubtful if we ever will know the real story regarding a possible secret attack by Egyptian forces. But, we do know that when Israel captured what is known as the “West Bank”(then part of Jordan) it was assuming control of a Palestine area the UN in 1948 assigned to Palestinians. Israel “supporters” and personally doubt if these people actually support an Israel goal of living at peace with Arab nations, insist the Israel government has a right to occupy and posses the West Bank. I gather that God assigned this piece of Earth to Jews.

Republicans and Democrats in Congress added an item to a trade bill with Europe which requires American officials to lobby Europeans to end boycotts of Israel goods from the West Bank. Talk about intruding in the affairs of other sovereign nations! President Obama justifiably was critical of this blatant attack upon the right of European nations to make foreign policy decisions. Some Israelis insist that God is on their side, just as the Ted Cruz crowd believe God is on THEIR side.

We do know that God is really on the side of Donald Trump.

Where Is Turkey?

There is one Middle Eastern nation which has a strong army that is equipped for war and whose government opposes terrorism. The name of this land is Turkey. However, President Recep Erdogan believes that Kurdish forces represent the greatest threat to peace in the region. He refuses to close his nation’s border with Syria to cut off new recruits for ISIS. In fact, Erdogan regards the ISIS nut cases as a good force for peace since they battle Kurds, along with a few other groups.

Erdogan hates President Assad and he will support any and all groups involved in the war in Syria. A problem is that no one today even knows who are the bad or good guys in Syria. Turkey is allegedly a member of NATO but it refuses to cooperate in the immediate task of ending terror groups in the region. KURDS for Erdogan will always be THE enemy.

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

Now that we are getting rid of Rebel relics, how about taking on English ones?

It is Thursday, I wonder who will announce that he/she is running for president?

I await IT announcing that IT is running for president.

I would welcome an announcement that someone is NOT running for president.

The great mystery of life is how Republicans can differentiate themselves from Republicans.

George H.W.Bush only served one term, I wonder if he will decide to run again?

How about a mile race to get rid of some Republican candidates?

Bobby Jindal Is Here

I have a hunch that about 85% of Americans do not have the slightest idea as to who or what Bobby Jindal is. For the uninformed, he is governor of the state of Louisiana. At this very moment, no economist can figure out how this guy raised taxes but made it appear that he reduced taxes. That is another story. Anyway,having nothing bette to do and being rather upset that just about everyone has announced they are running for president, Bobby joined the crowd

“I am running for president without permission from headquarters in Washington D.C. We have a bunch of great talkers running for president. We’ve had enough talkers. It is time for a doer.”

1. Who the hell is the “headquarters” in Washington? Obama?

2. Here is a man who just RAISED taxes in Louisiana and somehow made this action come across as LOWERING taxes. I guess this is an example of being a “doer.”

“I’m Hurt, Help Me!”

It was Tuesday and this is in modern America. Walter Williams DeLeon, age 45, was waving a towel and apparently seeking aid and assistance from the police. As he approached a police car, the cops decided that he was “approaching them in an aggressive manner.” So, what else to do but blast away at this threatening man? They did shout before shooting, “drop the gun.” There is a problem, if one does NOT have a gun it is rather difficult to drop what one does not possess.

Some police now believe that he was injured and in distress. Oh,after the shooting they placed handcuffs on his hand as he lay there bleeding.

Only in America do police ASSUME that any act by a person represents a “THREAT” to their safety. The man must have been hurt and the towel was simply being used to halt some bleeding. The good news is that he was a white man which goes to prove that cops are an equal opportunity group.

Earl Holt Stands For Freedom

Frankly, until yesterday I had never heard of Mr. Earl Holt. He runs an organization that is named Council of Conservative Citizens. Any reader can readily grasp what he seeks to accomplish. Mr. Hold gives away some money, not a lot, five thousand here or five thousand there. He gave money to Rand Paul, to Rick Santorum,to Scott Walker, and naturally to Ted Cruz. I assume these Republicans were a bit upset to discover the money came from one who thinks Dyann Roof’s ideas represent the right thing to say.

OK, Mr. Holt now makes clear that he does not agree with murdering people. but he does want the world to know that the shootings “do not detract in the slightest from the legitimacy of some of the positions expressed by Dyann Roof.”

Gee, I wonder if Republicans would return money from the Koch Brothers if they agreed with Roof?

Dylan Roof Is Us

Imagine being a young boy raised in some Southern state who can walk by a Confederate flag and hear people praise the good old days when “darkies knew their place?” Imagine watching Fox News rant and rave about “criminal blacks” who refuse to behave like good white people? Imagine being raised in a nation which refuses to enforce basic controls over use of guns? Dylann Roof was raised in a land of hate and verbal violence by those in the Republican Party whose ongoing non-stop refrain is that a man from Africa heads our nation and “he hates America?” Dylann was raised with hate spewing from the mouths of Fox News pundits,and he was raised in a state that refuses to control the use of guns of terrorism.

I hate to put it so blunt but Dylann was simply an ordinary American who was taught that guns are OK and that blacks are not. He was TAUGHT TO HATE. So, what is the surprise when he turned out to be an A student in hate. He had excellent teachers including a few dozen men seeking to become president of this nation. He is just an ordinary God-fearing American young man.

Who Is Enemy In Middle East?

It is now a common idea that there are Muslim fanatics who have taken over the religion and transformed it into an excuse for terrorism and destruction. But, American leaders rarely discuss the founder of such ideas for the simple reason Muslim terrorism was born in the land of our great ally-Saudi Arabia. Madrassa schools which educate young Muslim boys to hate the West have been funded for decades by Saudi Arabia. If one seeks a Muslim nation to emulate what better one than Saudi Arabia which denies women basic human rights or beheads and lashes those who disagree with the leaders of the nation. Saudi Arabia is the model for Muslim terrorism. They have funded terror groups such as al-Qaeda and many of those in ISIS did receive funding from Saudi sources.

At present,Saudi Arabia funds:
1. Egyptian generals who deny democracy to their people.
2. Rulers in Gulf states who deny democracy.
3. Terror groups in Syria and Iraq receive funding from Saudi sources.
4. Saudi planes are bombing Yemen and causing thousands to turn to the Houthis.

So, the number one enemy of the US in the Middle East is -SAUDI ARABIA
