It has now become a must statement on Fox News that the sky is falling and CHAOS reigns around the world since Barack Obama became our president. Most scholars of international relations believe the current era of human kind is among the most peaceful in the history of this planet, but Fox News insists that violence is growing due to failure of President Obama to send in the troops in order to reduce violence. I trust you remember when the great President George Bush sent in the troops to end violence in the Middle East. As I recall, in the year 2001 there was not a single war going on in the Middle East. And, the war in Afghanistan was over with Russian troops having left. Oh, there were some dictators, but there was not a single war going on in this region in the year, 2001.
Examine the present:
There is not a major conflict occurring on the continent of Asia. There are some guerrilla forces opposing governments in Thailand and Myanmar, but no other conflict.
The only conflict in Latin America is in Columbia where guerrilla forces are currently engaged in negotiations with the government to end the conflict. Mexico is a basket case of violence, but the fight is between drug lords and the government. But, no other Latin American violence.
There is not a single war in Europe except for the conflict in Ukraine. This conflict involves a few thousand and dozens of people die each month, but this is not a major conflict.
There are conflicts in Nigeria in which a few thousand Boko Haram nut cases rape and murder. Aside from some conflicts over who is the president of a nation, there are no major wars on the African continent except for northern regions like Libya.
So, where is the chaos? Believe it or not the only major conflicts in the world are in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya. None of these conflicts arose during the administration of a Democrat as President.

I do not know if this is good news or bad news, but John Bolton has announced that he would not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Now, you might ask, “who the hell is John Bolton?” He was the UN representative of the Bush administration. On the other hand, George Pataki has announced that he might seek the Republican nomination. Now, you might ask: “who the hell is George Pataki?” He did serve as governor of New York state. Stand by for the latest description of the greatest show in town– who is the Republican candidate for president in 2016?
1. Lindsay Graham, the US senator from the state of South Carolina has informed America: “Tomorrow morning(today) I will be giving an important update on my 2016 plans and I want to make sure you are able to hear it.” I have a funny feeling no one other than Lindsay will be paying any attention to his decision.
2. As of this date we have yet to hear from Donald Trump or Rick Perry or Sarah Palin as to their desires to run for president. Again, I do not know if this is good or bad news for the Republican party.
I wonder if it would be beneficial for potential candidates to present themselves to a play director and have that person decide as to who should be the lead in the play of 2016 titled: “Running for President.”
It will be a comedy in three acts: Act 1: Deciding to run. Act 2: Running in the Primary. Act 3: Running for President.
I can guarantee this will be one funny play.
P.S. George H.W. Bush only served on term as president, why shouldn’t he run for a second term?

Wee are now entering thirty years of Bush folks somewhere near or around the White House. So, to understand the Bush clan:
1. A Bush holding your hand means the other one might hold a knife.
2. Together the Bush dynasty has led to three wars for America.
3. I believe the behavior of the Bush clan is bush league.
4. When a Bush lights a fire it can become a firefight.
5. Few Bushes grow up to be giant trees in the forest.
6. Plant a bush on your lawn and it will transform into a fungus that devours your sons and daughters.
I believe it is time to replace our bushes with flowering plants of beauty.
