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 enjoy the feel of pages in a book.

In modern America if someone gets a cold, blame it on Obama.

Hysteria is the handmaiden of ignorance.

Americans explain while using hands.

Some wear badge of stupidity with pride.

One can not wave away a problem.

Many modern Jews have forgotten how injustice was normal in the lives of their ancestors.

Drone Always Gets Its Target

For some reason, a cop who is standing about ten feet from some man without a gun can not fire his weapon and hit a leg or arm, he has to blast away at the heart. So, it is good news that a drone up in the sky can not only spot a person in a house and deliver a blast that tears apart the house without damaging the silverware or even slightly wounding another person. According to our experts, there are few times when a drone hits an innocent person. Over the weekend in Pakistan an American drone fired away and killed 31 militants. NO, it did not kill “some,” it killed exactly 31 militants. If you doubt this accuracy, just ask the drone. You see, the drone can see all very clearly, and just by gazing at a face it knows which of these Muslim dudes is the extremist one who has a date with death today. So, who am I to doubt that exactly 31 “militants” died in this raid.

I assume when these “accurate” attacks take place there is no innocent person sleeping in the corner of the room. Nor, when the bomb blasts the room, it does not disturb the baby sleeping in a crib just a room away. Every independent study of drone attacks has uncovered evidence that HUNDREDS of innocent people have been killed by drone attacks. Perhaps, if drones are so accurate they can be placed in charge of training police how to hit an arm or leg rather than a heart?

Guess Who Is Running For President?

The new year isa certainly bringing good tidings for what will await the American people in the coming months. Just when we thought that rotund Chris Christie would be the only slab of blubber in the list of men or women seeking the high office of the land, our favorite mouth of stupidity is going to take the plunge and get his feet in the race that will run for another two years. Former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee who has spent the past few years commentating for fox News wants the world to know that he is ready to give it a shot, and when we say, “shot,” is has no relationship to his love of guns. The only bad news is that Mike wants to make clear, “I’m not going to make a decision about running until late this year.”

Of course, if he does run, his job mouthing Fox News views will have to cease. There is something about “ethics” that prevents someone who comments on TV to also run for public office. He wants potential donors to know that he surely appreciates their dough, but he is frightened that sponsors do not like someone talking about their product to also be talking about politics. I believe we need Mike, at least he is openly funny and ignorant.

Should Men Be Moms?

There is a health minister in Turkey who is convinced that only women should mother a child. He made clear to all those in Turkey that men should stay away from babies and behave like men. According to Mehmet Muezzingoglu “motherhood is not a career which everyone can have. It is not a career men can have. It is a career which is never disputable sand is sacred.” Turkish writer, Eli Safaki who has a career as a writer as well as feeling able to be a mom responded: “motherhood is not a career. Turkish women should decide their own paths of life.” Of course, at this very moment all over America and many nations in the world, husbands and wives are sharing the job of raising children while they also hold down jobs.

I raised two children from the ages of one and two all by myself while I held down a job teaching in a college. I do understand how women often asked me: “do you also do the cooking and wash their clothes?” Unfortunately, I could not afford a cook or butler, so it fell to me to handle these tasks in life. Men can do any job connected with raising children except that one that involves a breast.

Idaho Seeks To Protect Marriage

Governor “Butch” Otter of the great state of Idaho is determined to protect the citizens of this state agains the horde of Gays and Lesbians seeking to enter this domain and pollute the minds of its inhabitants with weird ideas about who can or should be allowed to marry. I do understand that in Idaho a potato is not allowed to marry with another potato. I do understand that in the state of Idaho dogs who wish to do “it,” must be of different sexes. Anyway, Butch and his Attorney General want the Supreme Court to respond to the question: “whether the federal constitution prohibits a stare from maintaining the traditional understanding and definition of marriage as between a man and a woman.” How about answering the following questions?

1. Did the Founding Fathers believe that a white person had the right to keep a black skinned person as a slave?

2. Did they believe that only males could vote?

3. Did they believe that Jews and Catholic could vote? (many states in the 1790s did not allow these people to vote)

And, so on and so on. How about accepting that time changes our views on what is or not legal? Our Founding Fathers did not know about automobiles and speed limits, therefore?

Hysteria In America

Since the infamous 9/11 bombings, this nation has enjoyed a decade of hysteria about alleged threats and worries regarding some sort of terrorist attack. Since the past summer when people began to protest about the murder in Ferguson, Missouri and subsequent murders of people like Eric Garner in New York, the silly season is in high tension. Some nut case who goes by the name of Jason Valentine, has been sending tweets regarding his ideas to handle police in the St. Louis area. He mentioned his intention of “frightening 10 or more people,” and promised that on New Year’s eve it would become a “kill a pig night.” He also claimed that some sort of explosion would occur in a St. Louis municipal building. His threats have resulted in charges against him for potential terrorist attacks agains the police. As far as anybody knows, none of these events ever took place beyond being posted as a tweet.

It is time to restore common sense in this nation. Tweeting is NOT akin to shouting “fire” in a crowded theater. Just about every day Republicans tweet about their desire to end health care for millions which if carried out would result in the death of thousands, but no grand jury investigates these tweets. As Franklin D. Roosevelt told the American people decades ago, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Period!

Another Plane Down In Southeast Asia

I confess to being a devout believer in X-Files, visitors from other planets and anything to do with strange sights. Heck, yesterday, I saw the photo which clearly reveals that a stone coffin is on Mars. There is no doubt the stone coffin contains the body of some Martian or some other visitor who happened to die on Mars. So, it is normal for me to believe that strange alien powers are behind the disappearance of still another plane flying into Singapore for from that city. So, how to explain this new mystery?

1. Aliens are taking bodies off the plane prior to its crash.

2. Muslim terrorists blew themselves up.

3. Pilots heard a Ted Cruz speech and decided that enough madness is enough in their lives so why not end it all?

4. The food was so bad on the plane that pilots became ill and lost consciousness.

5. The pictures of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell appeared causing the pilots to go mad at the prospect of living in a world in which these two nut cases had power.

6. The Bermuda Triangle drifted off to Asia?

Sadness Of Weirdness About Albinos

I am a citizen of the United States of America so I hesitate to comment on the unusual ideas of those living in other nations of the world. There are witch doctors in Africa and we have nut cases in this country who nightly appear on Fox News. There is a concept that is held by many inhabitants residing in east African nations that anyone who has an albino appearance is somehow possessed of incredible powers to do good. This idea is akin to that held by Republicans who believe if one is possessed by millions of dollars then one is prepared to devote working hours in order to increase the wealth of fellow Americans. Call it what you desire, but this is witch craft carried to the nth degree. Anyway, in Tanzania since 2000 at least 74 people have been murdered who are albinos. The latest victim is a four year old girl who has disappeared and her dad and three others are suspect.

An entire Albino corpse sells for about $60,000 but most bodies are cut up and parts sold to those seeking good luck. An election is coming up in Tanzania so many political seekers want an Albino part in order to win an election. This is similar to America where political figures want money from witch doctors in order to win an election.
