RACISM IN AMERICA

I tuned in to Fox News in order to learn about their handling of the horrific news from Charleston, South Carolina where a 21 year old man entered a Black church and murdered nine people. As he blasted away, Dylan Roof shouted,”you rape our women, you’re taking over our country. You have to go.” So, he shot six black women and there black men. I was informed by Fox News commentators that we should not get into any talk about–RACISM- since this young man was engaged in a war against Christians. Race had nothing to do with the shootings.

Let me get this straight, Dylan Roof drove past a few dozen white churches and halted at the famous BLACK African Methodist Episcopalian Church because he hated Christians. According to Fox News, this shooting is simply part of the war against Christianity which we all know was begun by the Muslim in the White House. How do these people on Fox News sleep at night? What exactly do they tell their children? Yes, Dylan Roof is sick, but his sickness is not as serious as the one suffered by those on Fox News.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia,Canberra Times: “Dirty Deals In Legislature”

Are there any other kinds?

Israel,Haaretz: “Life Is Crap”

More like a crap shoot in my view.

France, Connexion: “Tap Water Gets Thumbs Up”

In California they will even take water that gets a thumb down.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “What You Can Do About Mosquitoes”

Slap them hard?

Denmark,Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

The question posed to our Congress?

Dark Secrets Remain Hidden

These days stories emerge every so often about the good old days under the regime of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld when Muslim men were taken as prisoners and wound up in some hell hole far away from the good old USA. These “dark prisons” were simply an opportunity for members of the CIA to torture men, and since this brutality did not occur on American soil, who would know anything about it? The Polish government is admitting there were “black sites” where men were tortured.

Part of the problem of this campaign is that X number of prisoners were turned into American authorities for the reward or to get even with an enemy. Since these men were not allowed the semblance of a trial, how could they deny their guilt. The other aspect of this programs that it set in motion policies that encouraged government, whether under a Republican or a Democratic president to abuse the Constitution. Crying “wolf” is not a policy, it is an excuse to violate American law.

Rick Wows Iowa Folk

I understand that at this moment, Rick Santorum lacks the numbers to be on the stage when Fox News unveils the winning person who will sweep t victory in 2016. Well, those, like me, who want the right Rick as our president now have some good news. Rick Santorum was met by a single person the other day and can now boast he has at least one vote in his corner. Figure it out, if Rick can double the number of people each day for fifty days who are ready to vote for him, then he will have untold millions in his corner.

Name another Republican who can get 220 million votes! Rick is on a roll. Flash, just in. Yesterday, Rick was greeted by TWO people! The ball is rolling. Just another fifty or so days and the man who wears a sweater will be wearing a top hat at the inauguration!

Jeb One Tough Texan

Jeb Bush was raised in the great state of Texas and the Alamo is fixed in his mind how a brave group of men fought for freedom and died in the effort. Of course, one of the factors that led Texans to rebel against the government of Mexico which originally had allowed them to enter the country was the decision by those heathen backward people to end slavery in the country. So, Texas rebelled in the name of freedom.

Well, Jeb is now in Europe where he is making clear to Europeans that if elected, he will clean up the mess because no God-fearing Texan would allow Vladimir Putin to bully him. He also blasted President Obama for not standing up to Putin. When asked about his own plans, Jeb was direct: “Look, I’m here to learn, to listen and to learn and get a better sense of all this.” I assume he will learn that President Obama and EU leaders have implemented sanctions. In other words, Jeb now agrees with Obama!

Jeb Jabs At Obama

Jeb Bush, although not exactly an official candidate for president is making the traditional tour of Europe in order to prove to Americans that he does know the location of Germany and France. We assume he knows where England is because he studied the American Revolution and heard all about the bad Kings who ruled England and their colonies. Anyway, Jeb was in Berlin so he had to make a dramatic speech. The former Governor of Florida spoke strongly about the need to abandon Obama policies that allowed Russia to do whatever it desired. He promised if he was elected President, but at this moment he can not say such words because he would then be subject to restrictions on raising money, anyway, he did assure Germans that he would institute sanctions against Putin to let him know who is the real boss man.

I wonder if anyone told Jeb that the Obama administration already has instituted sanctions against Russia. Perhaps Jeb, being from Texas might challenge Vladimir to a shoot out at high noon? Winner take all. I mean that if Putin wins he gets Texas.

Let’s Buddy UP With Al-Qeada

Once upon a time, a long,long time ago in the 1980s, the Republican President Reagan and the Republican President George H.W.Bush decided that a man named Osama bin Laden was a real neat guy. He had come to Afghanistan in order to fight the terrible Russian communists. Naturally our CIA gave him millions and millions of dollars and weapons to beat the bad Commies. OK, so a few things have changed. But, how about?

1. Forming an alliance with al-Qaeda to fight ISIS? This group of terrorists used to fight for al-Qaeda until they decided to form their own organization.

2. The US hates ISIS. Al-Qaeda hates ISIS. This seems like a marriage made in heaven.

3. Then again, the Houthis in Yemen hate Al-Qaeda.

The real foreign policy issue confronting America is how to ally both with al-Qaeda and the Houthis. Now, if Barack Obama can work out this small problem, he can solve all issues in the Middle East without sending US troops or using Drones.

Then again, Barack Obama could make friends with his Muslim brothers in ISIS and take over America.

Threats To Law And Order

I realize there are people in this nation who believe we confront real threats to our very existence from evil forces in the Middle East, in Russia, in China, but who among them has really confronted the greatest threat to our society? I am talking about poor parties. Damn it, why aren’t more Americans upset at the violence that can erupt when teens gather together at some pool party. I assume by now most readers have heard about the near riot that occurred in a Texas town when some BLACK kids went to the pool. Examine the issues that arise when BLACK kids swim:

1. They contaminate the water with their skin.

2. There is a possibility that some sweet white girl will have her body touched by one of those BLACK BOYS!

3. Add it up– a bunch of BLACK teens and how many guns are on them. They are very clever and have invented ways to hide guns when dressed in swim suits.

4. So, what else could officer Eric Casebolt do but pull a gun on these armed black kids coming from the pool. And, they were not waving water guns, you know how BLACK teens are?

Send In The Troops–Again!

As I recall it was a few years ago that we sent in the troops to Iraq and, as George Bush promised, a democracy was born in that land of sorrow. As I recall, Don Rumsfeld promised that Iraq folk would welcome us with open arms since we had gotten rid of the bad guy. I forget his name,something about Saddam. Well, guess what? We are sending in hundreds, thank God not thousands, of fresh American troops to help train the Iraq army. According to the Pentagon, “”We’ve determined it is better to train more Iraq security forces. We are now working through a new strategy on how to do it”

Let me get this straight. We have been sort of in Iraq for over a decade, and are working on a new strategy of training Iraq soldiers. Let me save the Pentagon some money. You cannot train men who do not want to fight! They need Iraq leadership, they need to believe they are fighting for their land rather than being robbed by their own officers.

How about hiring some guys from ISIS? They sort of know how to inspire men!

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 suspect that Fox News had to do some twisting to prove that black kids at a pool party were a threat to cops.

In Texas, the first response to anything is to wave a gun.

I was raised in the slums of New York where only a few crazy guys carried a gun.

No one ever caught Al Capone with a weapon on him!

We are the only free nation in the world which is free about who can carry guns.

Do you ever wonder how we came to become this nation of weapons?

I did fire many weapons while in the army, but since that time have never gotten near one again.
