Saudi Arabia And Terrorism

The King of Saudi Arabia is dead and there is now a new king. Naturally, American leaders flocked to Saudi Arabia in order to extend best wishes and hope the new King will continue the policies of the old King. Really? Does the United States really desire continuation of Saudi Arabian policies which have played an important role in creating the mess of Muslim terrorism? For example:

1. Saudi Arabia funded the madrassas schools which educate Muslim boys to hate the West.

2. Saudi money was proved to the Taliban during its early days.

3. Saudi money was given to the fight against the Russians in Afghanistan and thus help destabilize that nation.

4. Name a terrorist and it is certain that at some point he received funds from Saudi Arabia.

In simple English, Saudi Arabia has been the greatest source of funding terrorism in the Muslim world. Yeah, just continue your policies!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: Talking In English Baffles Swedes”

Big deal, talking in Swedish is not any English we Americans understand.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Some Mumble In Beer”

I much prefer mumbled beer talk than sober Republican blather.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Minors Flee Denmark”

OK with me as long as they do not flee to the Middle East.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Spread Your Wings”

We are in for some rocky months since Republicans are in town!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Pickpockets Reduced In Half”

Now, if we can reduce Putin’s pickpocketing Russia could end its crime wave.

Climate Change Doubters

It is a common mantra of Republicans that Muslim terrorists lack any sense of modern ideas since they desire to return Muslim people to a world of the past. According to Fox News, Islamic terrorists lack any sense of modernity and must be destroyed before they succeed in returning the modern world to one in which medieval concepts reign unchallenged. So, Republicans are determined to prove there is no human influence in climate changes that appear in our daily lives. I expect in the following months we can expect from Republican candidates:

1. Christopher Columbus was wrong. The Earth IS flat!

2. The Sun revolves around the Earth. If you doubt this, check with your local minister. He IS the scientific expert.

3. Prayer is the best way to cure any disease. Remember, pray long and hard!

4. The Earth is only 12,000 years old. Just ask your minister again.

5. The Flintstones was a real television show. It simply depicted life about ten thousand years ago.

And,always remember as a member of the Republican party I will say anything if you will vote for me.

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

Some rub eyes with palm of hand.

I experience guilt being alone in a booth.

In the end we do not know where we are going.

There is a time and place for a time and place.

I record what others do not.

Mama at supper always said, “so enjoy.”

Some are so happy with a full mouth of food.

Our lives are complicated by self inflicted goals.

At age 84 I am not in a hurry about anything.

Some walk with hands stiffly by side.

Kissinger Remains Republican Hero

There are moments when I am amazed how some people remain in the news even though a few decades have passed since they once were icons of fame. Henry Kissinger has been part of the American scene since as a twenty one year old soldier he wound up during World War II running an entire German city since as a refugee from Nazi Germany, the interrogator possessed the right language skills. One might mention that Kissinger the interrogator did NOT resort to torture in order to obtain needed information. The boy got a Ph.D. and eventually became an “expert” on foreign policy. He served under Richard Nixon as Secretary of State and gained fame for establishing diplomatic relations with Communist China. There is something ironic in the fact that REPUBLICANS reached out to Communist China, a nation that was number one in the world in torture and abuse of its people. Naturally, modern Republicans go crazy when Obama establishes diplomatic relations with Cuba.

Henry, once again was testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee when some people stood up with signs denouncing the Republican hero: “Arrest Henry Kissinger For War Crimes.” They referred to his role aiding the dictatorship of Chile which tortured and murdered thousands of their own people. This was just too much for Senator John McCain. He referred to the protestors as “low life scum.” And went on to describe their behavior as “disgraceful, and outrageous and despicable.”

The fact remans that Kissinger DID support a vicious dictator. I believe his actions were despicable.

Sweden, Local: “Meet The Beggars”

In America, most beggars reside on Wall Street and seek handouts from the government.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Get Off My Lawn”

That means you five year olds and I will have to blast you to Heaven!

Norway, Norway Post” “Norway Best Place For Seniors”

Sorry, we would rather slumber in heat than shiver in cold.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Russian Builds Space Ship To Moon”

Can you reserve a seat for Vladimir Putin?

Australia, Canberra Times: “Here We Go Again”

Two years of Republican blatherers seeking a nomination!

Barack Had Second Term Balls!

The Republican party won the past election and they arrived in Washington D.C. expecting to run the place and pass their legislation. Most Republicans expected the dude from Africa to get out of their way and turn this nation over to the Koch Brothers. Alas, Republicans forgot that a second term president was not running again for that position and now enjoyed the position of telling one and all, “go fuck yourself!” The NEW Obama frankly does not give a damn about what Republicans seek as legislation and he will make their lives miserable. In one sense, it has become “pay back time” for the president who was constantly impeded in his desires to pass legislation. For the past six years Republicans have been able to block passage of laws, and now the president with his power of the veto is giving then a taste of their own medicine.

The sad aspect of the new Obama is that this attitude would have resulted in greater victories for Obama if only he had behaved in this approach six years ago instead of giving in to Wall Street fears and threats. He should have told Wall Street to go fuck itself and protected those in need rather than making the rich more wealthy.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

In older days I wore a white tee shirt under my shirt.

I dislike looking up to tall men because they are looking down on me.

Sometimes, to glance backward is to glance ahead.

One must accept with grace there are things that will NOT occur during one’s life time.

Some present a determined look approaching eating a bagel.

Ultimate triumph is to be true to self.

Some place hand in back pocket exiting an eating place.

One must never ration praise.

Some touch nose when sitting down.

I so enjoy stretching out my legs when seated.

Bibi Seeks To Halt Peace In Middle East

The Obama administration just ended a policy that has failed to work for nearly seventy years when it decided to establish diplomatic relations with Cuba. Naturally, to Republicans if something has not worked for seventy years why not continue for seventy more. A similar Republican and Democratic approach is the policy desired toward Iran. Before discussing this issue, let me fill in readers with the story of what happened to our policy toward Iran in 2001. As you recall, American forces swept into Afghanistan after the 9/11 horror. What Americans do NOT know is that President Khatami, then leader of Iran, offered aid to Americans and worked with our military leaders by providing Intelligence about Taliban forces. He also prevented the Taliban from entering Iran. Khatami offered the US a deal. He agreed to recognize Israel, cease aiding terrorists, accepted UN review of his nation’s atomic development and wanted in return the end of sanctions and recognition of his government. President Bush turned down the deal.

Today, President Rouhani is attempting his best to reach an agreement with Western nations. But, Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu wants to pull another Bush response to Iran. According to PM Netanyahu, “in the coming weeks, the powers are liable to tech a framework agreement with Iran, kan agreement liable to leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state.” In other words, Iran would become like that other Middle Eastern state which refuses to allow UN into their nuclear facilities–Israel! It is time to end this madness and work With the Iran government. Cease being frightened by someone like Bibi Netanyahu whose only response is always -kill and kill!

Horror Of Nigeria Is Horrible

Every so often I console myself living in the United States of America with the thought that at least I am not a member of the nation of Nigeria. Imagine being a citizen of a country in which the President and his corrupt cronies devote their days and nights to robbing the people blind even as Muslim fanatics wander around murdering hundreds of people? President Goodluck Jonathan doesn’t give a damn if terrorists take over a large section of the country as long as his corrupt allies can siphon off billions from the nation’s oil. He allows an army in which soldiers are not provided weapons and are happy if they at least get paid every so often. When asked about the horror of Boko Haramhis response is to blame failure of other nations to wipe it out. He lacks any sense of responsibility for what transpires in his own nation. Goodluck reminds me of Chinese leaders in the 1940s who stole money as the Communists gradually took over the country.

Boko Haram murderers swept through small towns killing and burning. Imagine guerrilla forces taking over an army base! Rachel Adamu summed up the feeling of her fellow Nigerians: “Please pray for us, we are in danger, under serious attacks. Goodluck to those in danger of their lives, Goodluck doesn’t give a damn!
