HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Cat Killer CAn’t Be Jailed”

Unless it is provided with a daily allotment of milk?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Tax Cuts For The People”

In America, that means for homeless millionaires

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Sex-Ed Homework”

And, you are expected to do some hands-on activities.

Norway, Norway Post: “Steal Man’s Semen”

Does it enter the back or front?

Russia, Moscow Times: “Friendly Prison”

A place where you can listen to tapes of Putin explaining the world?

Republican Tough Guys!

These days listening to Republicans boast about their desire for war against evil Iran, one wonders why it is that so many of these tough guys have never served in the US Army? Marco Rubio, who would not know the front end of a bazooka, quoted the words of “General: Liam Neeson, who is a movie actor and has never fired a single shot against anyone other than a blank bullet aimed at another actor. Marco the Brave wants t he world to know that when it comes to Iran, “we will find you,and we will kill you!” Wow, those are strong words of bravery. According to Scott Walker, “we need a commander-in-chief who will call it what it is, and that is radical extremism. We need a president who will affirm that Israel is an ally and start acting like it.”

OK, so here is the Obama record:

1. President Obama provided Israel with its Dome program that destroys at least 90% of missiles aimed at Israel.

2. Under the Obama administration the state of Israel with its seven million people receives more military aid than any other nation in the world!

3. President Obama authorized the dispatch of an additional TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND MARINES TO AFGHANISTAN

Marco, Liam Neeson is an actor. He has absolutely not experience fighting real people. If you really want to get ISIS, just join the US army or go to Iraq and join their army and actually FIGHT BAD GUYS!

Jeb Believes In God

It has now been confirmed that Jeb Bush does believe there is a God up in the sky. He addressed students at Liberty University, a college whose science department teaches students the Earth suddenly appeared about ten thousand years ago because God had nothing to do that day and decided, what the heck, let life begin on this deserted planet. I am certain that in history courses they teach that the Flintstone family was the first human family that believed in God. I was taught some nonsense about Adam and Eve, but now understand those people were really the Flintstones. Jeb put on his best religious hat and spoke about THAT idea which any God fearing Christian knows must be halted–gay marriage!

Hw called ion every person who is “in favor of religious freedom.. to take an aggressive stand against it.” The IT is laws that compel merchants to sell their wares to those who are lesbians or gay. “Somebody here is being small minded and intolerant, and it sure isn’t those nuns,minsters and laymen who only ask to live and practice their faith.” I gotcha, Jeb. Time to return to the Bible. I assume that means let’s get back to the good old days of slavery. Or, how about asking God to strike down each and every Iranian child?

Jeb is always on the side of whatever will get him a vote!

By the way, Jeb, did anyone tell you that Muslim clerics agree one hundred percent with your ideas concerning gays and lesbians. Perhaps, Jeb is a closet Muslim!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We should have a contest for the most bizarre Republican conspiracy theory.

Whatever happened to the once sane Rand Paul?

Say the word, Iowa, and Marco Rubio will say whatever you want him to say.

We need term limits on how many candidates a political party can allow to run in their primaries.

A paper flew onto the desk of Rand Paul which said, Republican primary, and he signed it.

Once upon a time there were giants in the land, today, there are pygmies.

Sorry, Jesus is NOT coming back, would you return to this planet containing these crazy Republicans??

Conversations With Izanians

I have been in contact for decades with some representatives from the planet of Izan. It is located light years away from this minor planet. I asked my friends for their reaction to Republican candidates fro president.

Ted Cruz: You are not joking, are you? He really attended what you term to be a prestigious university? So, what do inferior universities produce?

Mike Huckabee: He appears sort of out-of-shape to combat any foreign soldiers, doesn’t he? On the planet of Izan we term such people, “those who speak the wind, and fart from the ass.”

Ms.Fiorina: Let me get this straight. She was fired from running a corporation and has never even been elected dog catcher and she wants to rule your land? On Izan, one must have previously been elected head dog catcher before seeking a position dealing with intelligent life forms.

Rand Paul: He appears to have a tendency to say one thing on Monday and another thing on Friday. On Izan, we term such life forms: “One who can not make up his mind.”

Jeb Bush: He looks sort of tired and is for something but it is unclear what he desires. OH, we do know he desires to be this president.

Marco Rubio: For some reason he has a deep affection for the people of Israel. He does not look very Jewish or is it the money of this evil looking creature, Sheldon Adelson that prompts his comments?

The question posed by my contacts on Izan is what ever happened to Sarah Palin. They found her delightfully weird. They know she does not know anything about planet Earth, but she is very good at looking out of her window and seeing Siberia. In terms of gazing, she is superior to anyone on Izan. They also miss Herman Cain and that man from Texas who does not even know who is in the Cabinet.

By the way, they really want to meet this guy named God who everyone loves.

Gaza Deaths Were Never In Doubt

The Israel army has invaded Gaza time after time in order to destroy Hamas military targets. No one doubts that Hamas has been planning and, even carrying out, missions designed to inflict casualties upon Israel citizens. A central issue surrounding these attacks is whether or not the deaths imposed upon the guilty was also inflicted upon the innocent. Sixty Israel soldiers told investigators they were informed by those in charge of the latest attack in Gaza that everything in Gaza was a “threat” and they were not to worry about how much ammunition was sent in the direction of what was supposed to be Hamas forces. Tanks just blasted away at buildings whether or not they contained Hamas soldiers or innocent civilians. The guiding principle was, “we don’t take risks. We do not spare ammo. Anything in Gaza is a threat.”

If those are the operating guidelines for soldiers then it is not a surprise that innocent people will also die. An estimated four or five hundred Hamas soldiers were killed. An estimated 1500 other people also died. Perhaps, there is another approach to Gaza. Perhaps, if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu worked as diligently for peace as he does for war, then, just perhaps, the innocent would not die. His main guideline is always, ATTACK.

Oh, Am I Tough!

It has has now become the accepted approach by all Republican candidates for president to display a verbal toughness to any and all evil forces in the world. Mike Huckabee promised that Iran would never get an atomic bomb and he is ready to do something about that future event. His words of defiance, promise of military action, are simply what each and every person seeking the presidency as a Republican is promising the American people. This is one group of really tough warriors who are ready to dispatch Americans into dangerous combat at the drop of a hat. As I recall, a few years ago there was a Republican president who was gung ho for war and destruction. Remember how he stood on an aircraft carrier with the announcement: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Not a single one of these Republicans has ever tested the horror of war. Rick Perry did serve in the military but never got close to anyone firing back at him. Yes, Mike, you are one tough dude. However, if you desire to bomb Iran, the people doing the bombing will not be named, Mike Huckabee. Some will die but you will be the one who talks about war and death. It is time for Republicans to send their own children into harm’s way before sending other young people to their deaths.

The main issue today is: Jaw, Jaw, Not War, War!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I assume the main qualification for running for president is to have never taken a science course.

Republicans insist they must end the IRS and increase military spending. I guess Houdini is their main secret weapon.

Oh, for a day in this world without a shot being fired!

We now have two doctors running for president. How about two turtle doves?

There ought to be a law requiring anyone running for president to speak softly.

I so miss the peace of night falling without violence in the world

Just think, in twenty years a Clinton and a Bush running for president!

Does America Have Moral Responsibilities?

There is fighting in Iraq, there is fighting in Yemen, there is fighting in Syria, there is fighting in Somalia there is fighting in Nigeria, three are hundreds of immigrants drowning in the sea as they desperately seek peace in some European nation. Once again, the United States of America has been drawn into fights and wars around the world. So, the question must be posed: “Does America have moral responsibilities to people of the world?” Examine the record of the 20th century

1. We came late to World War I and did play a role in the Allied victory. Most historians today agree that Imperial Germany did initiate the war. But, was the only solution to send American troops into combat? What would have happened if those fresh American soldiers had not arrived? Most likely both sides would have worked out a peace agreement.

2. The US was attacked by Japan in 1941 and entered World War II. Russian troops carried the main burden in the war along with British and American forces. There is no doubt we had to fight and end the threat of Nazi Germany winning.

3. After the end of WWII, the famous Cold War began. The theory of Containment was NOT to engage in war against the Soviet Union but to wait until internal forces within that nation ended communism. The
Vietnam war violated this theory. And, what happened? Internal forces changed the Soviet Union.

In other words, a nation can be a moral leader without engaging in war. We have never focused upon economic development in the Middle East. Perhaps, if we assisted the economic growth of Muslim societies there would not be wars now raging in the Middle East. Perhaps, peace and jobs is a the right moral stand for the US?

Black Helicopters Over Texas

There are moments in time when I desire for war to break out in the United States of America. The state of Texas is once again allowing paranoia to fill the air with cries that each and every Texan must stand up to fight for their rights against the tyranny that comes from Washington D.C. The US military is conducting exercises, just as the military does several times a year in various locations in the USA. But, for the maniacs who inhabit the state of Texas anything connected with the US government is merely part of a conspiracy to overthrow the people of Texas and reduce them to slavery. How about finally challenging the NRA in Texas for a shoot out between Special Services and the idiots who masquerade as real soldier? We can have the contest at high noon, the US military vs the Texas Rangers!

Texas receives billions of dollars from Washington D.C. since we have space programs located in that state and the entire budget comes from the evil GOVERNMENT. Frankly, anyone who claims that Washington D.C. is going to take away our rights by sending soldiers into Texas is stark raving mad! At this moment a majority in Congress is composed of Republicans who hate the Obama administration and the Supreme Court is controlled by conservatives. Do Texans really believe any US general would attack the state of Texas??
