With God On Our Side

With God’s blessing, Rand Paul is running for president, Ted Cruz insists that he is merely dong what the Lord told him by seeking to become the next president, Jeb became a Catholic in order to do what God wants, Rick Perry can not make a statement without invoking the Lord. Sarah Palin talks with God every day and Marco Rubio thanks God for getting his family our of Cuba. Here are some other examples of how
God has blessed the American people.

With God on their side, Europeans wiped out the Indians with guns and germs.

With God on both sides, 600,000 died in the Civil War.

Naturally, God was on the side of those who kept slaves.

With God on our side we went to Asia in order to uplift some folk.

With God on both sides World War I led to the death of millions.

We had God on our side as we defeated Nazi Germany and then we asked God to get on their side to beat the Russians.

Where does God get the time to be on our side?

Oh, I forgot, God is on the side of Muslim fanatics!

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

Why is it OK to hack other nations but it is not OK for them to hack us?

Rand Paul is not a chip off the block of his dad.

Some day someone will explain the fighting in Yemen so I can understand it.

Long time since I head from Rick Santorum.

Whatever happened to Herman Cain?

Then again, when does Rick Perry speak out about something?

We live in strange times with strange people.

Bibi, Foreign Policy Expert?

Members of the Republican party and a lot of Democratic Senators regard Israel Prime Minister as an expert on the Middle East. Here is the record:

1. In 1992, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from having an atomic bomb.

2. In 2002 Bibi insisted that America had to invade Iraq and end the menace of Saddam.

3. In 2003, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from an atomic bomb.

4. When Bibi took over leadership of Israel, its closest ally was Turkey and the IDF and Turkish army units conducted joint exercises. Today, Turkey is furious at Israel due to attacks on its ships and murder of
Turkish citizens.

5. In 2010 Bibi insisted that Iran was close to having an atomic bomb.

6. Bibi believes the solution we should follow is to bomb Iran.

7. Hezbollah in Lebanon has 30,000 missiles which will be sen toward Israel in case of war.

8. The prior three heads of Mossad insist that attacking Iran would be a mistake.

So, why is Bibi an expert??

Bibi Never Gives UP

It is understandable that Bibi Netanyahu is upset because the good old days when American forces fought and died in Iraq is no longer possible. Bibi is a fighter who never gives up regardless of the fact the guy he is fighting wants to end violence and work for peace. Of course, Bibi and his buddies in Congress are convinced that Iranians can not be trusted and the only land in the Middle East which can is ISRAEL. So, examine the record:

Israel launched an attack in 1956 against Egypt until told to stand down by President Eisenhower–a Republican.

Israel launched an attack in 1967 and won the Six Day War.

Israel invaded Lebanon in the 1980s

Israel has four times invaded the Gaza Strip.

And, violent Iran: IT HAS NEVER INVADED A MIDDLE EASTERN NATION.

Anyway, Yuval Steinitz, Israel minister strategic affairs said that military action is possible against Iran. “It was on the table. It is still on the table. It’s going to remain on the table.”More words of peace from Israel.

Rich Gays Attack We Americans!

The ware against we straight folk has no end. Those gay guys who run all the important corporations in America have launched an attack on decent God fearing Americans who want to protect their right to be a God fearing decent law abiding red blooded American citizen. Tim Cook,the you know what sexual orientation head of Apple has lined up a bunch of fags who also run corporations and they are out to destroy the very fabric of our American society. A bunch of these guys or gals, or whatever, have issued an ultimatum to those who believe in a two sex family. They point out: “a lotos companies are very risk averse and want to be on the right side of history. They also know the political views of their customers as users…Any state that enacts legislation that does not specifically protect LBGT persons” will face the wrath of those who run these corporations.

I believe it is time for God fearing Americans to commit suicide, get to Heaven and let the Big Guy up in the sky know what the heck is going on down here. I am certain he will send some thunderbolts to wipe out these evil men and women.

First they demanded that black folk who were contented as hell to get angry.

Then they insisted we had to elect come Catholic who reported to the Vatican as our president.

Then they insisted that women who were happy in the home had to work and leave their children.

What is happening to the America we used to know??

Republicans On Middle East

The attack upon Barack Obama continues as members of the Republican party and their media source, Fox News, continue to insist that whatever has happened in the Middle East is the result of blunders on the part of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Examine the record:

1. ISIS was created due to mistakes by President Obama. He refused to recognize this organization as an important development.

Reality: Actually, some truth to this charge, when ISIS arose, Obama did not recognize what it represented. He thought it was simply another version of al-Qaeda.

2. Obama failed to maintain US troops in Iraq.

Reality: He refused to allow US troops because the government of Prime Minister Maliki really did not want them to remain and refused to accept a condition that Americans would not be tried in Iraq courts. Imagine what Fox News would do if US troops could be placed on trial in an Iraq court?

3. Fox News and SOME REPUBLICANS insist we need “troops on the ground.”

Reality: Every poll reveals the American people oppose this action. And, this feeling is shared by Republicans such as Rand Paul.

Reality: We are living in the aftermath of the blunder of invading Iraq. We will live with this action for several more years.

France Moves To Right

There is a significant shift in the attitudes of people in the Western world. They increasingly are disgusted with any and all forms of government that include passing laws that impact the wealthy or that allow people of the Muslim religion to enjoy human rights. At a time of vast changes in technology that reduce the number of decent paying jobs, of the rise of immigration from areas that are in poverty to areas that are enjoying the benefits of modern government sponsored legislation such as minimum wage of health insurance, those at the bottom of our economic society are angry. They feel left out and due to social media and the vast wealth of those who can manipulate the news, have come to believe their problems are the result of poor people from the Middle East and Africa. In one way or another liberal forces have failed to communicate with those who are at the bottom of the economic level that maldistribution of wealth is the problem.

Former President Nicolas Sarkozy and his UMP movement made significant gains in local elections in France. They went from controlling 42 local Departments to 65. French Socialist leader Prime Minister Manual Valls made clear “the French have declared their anger of a daily life that is difficult.” Just like Americans, the French do not believe there are any problems with economic inequality but believe all problems stem from immigrants taking their jobs! The only good news is that the truly right wing National Front did not sweep the election.

Israel Always On Our Minds!

I confess to actually believe that important issues confronting the United States of America are healthcare, the rising inequality of income, student loans, the need to rebuild our infrastructure or decent wages for those who work. But, in the state of Maryland it is now clear that whoever becomes their next US Senator must focus on the most important issue of the day– where does the candidate stand on the issue of Israel! Democratic candidate Chris Van Hollen wants Democrats to know that he will stand with AIPAC, the American Public Affairs Committee which is a mouth piece for the Netanyahu government. He promises to love Israel and these days in many American Jewish circles that means back Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. On the other hand Donna Edwards likes the J Street crowd of those who are soft on Israel and really hate Israel. It has now come down to the issue of whether or not one hates or loves Israel.

To LOVE ISRAEL, a candidate must support the Netanyahu government.

To Hate ISRAEL a candidate opposes the Netanyahu government.

I am an American who is a Jew, I am not a Jew who is an American.

Religious Freedom For All

There are times when Republicans employ the word, “freedom” in ways that defy any semblance of intelligence. I was raised when the expression “religious freedom” referred to the right of people to practice their religion in face of discrimination and hatred. Heck, back in those days, we were concerned that this fight entailed the very right to even live because some government refused to allow people to pray. We have moved a long way from the days of the Holocaust to a time when someone who makes cakes is now the center of religious freedom. In the state of Indiana as well other parts of the USA, if those who bake cakes do not wish to sell their products to gays and lesbians they have now have a constitutional right to say, NO.

I wonder what next will become a right that Republicans will make into a law:

1. I have a constitutional to drive my car at whatever speed God says.

2. I have a constitutional right to pee in the streets, it is my dick!

3. I have a constitutional right to bring my gun to the Congressional galleries. Just check the 2nd Amendment.

The world has gone mad now that Republicans control state government.

The Sorrow Of Death

I confess to being emotionally overwhelmed by the recent tragic death of 150 people when their plane went down on its flight from Spain. We inhabit a world in which hate flourishes and results in the death of the innocent. A group of people boarded a plane in Spain that included children on their way home from studying. They were innocent, but unfortunately they inhabit a world in which a single mentally ill person can murder a few hundred people. New evidence indicates that one of the pilots just broke up with his girl friend and that he had serious mental issues. In the modern world when one is mentally ill, then one has the power to murder dozens of people. Frankly there is no way to avoid such calamities. We benefit from modernity and we suffer from modernity.

There are no words to express our sorrow. There are no words to explain this murder of the innocent. All we can do is chalk it up to modernity and what we humans have created in the name of ‘progress.” The only certain thing is that within a few years there will be another such incident. Just remember, there are people on social media who thrive on becoming important.
