Nazi–Who Me???

Members of the Republican party are aware of every group that President Obama has ever belonged to or talked with because when it comes to checking out the private and public lives of LIBERALS, no stone must be left untouched. Congressman Steve Scalia is from the great state of Louisiana and he wants the world to know that from now on in his role of Majority Whip in the House of Representatives there will be nonstop investigations of whatever Democrats have done or even thought of doing. For some reason, one of those Liberals, checked into his own background. It turns out that in 2002, young Steve gave a talk to members of a white supremacist group that had ties to white supremacists in Europe. The European-American White and Rights Organization-EURO had links to American Nazi David Duke. These folks hate blacks, immigrants and Jews, but what the heck, they do believe that whites are the oppressed people these days.

Steve is rather upset. “For anyone to suggest that I was involved with a group like that is insulting and ludicrous.” He just gave talks to bigots which hardly translates into being a bigot. Then again, he did not know that American Nazi, David Duke was connected to the group. As far as Steve is concerned it is bigots who are out to get him. At least the Republican party can begin the new power knowing it is out in the open that bigots control the legislature!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Russia, Moscow Times: “Ruble Joke”

Purchase rubles?

USA, NY Daily News: “Masturbating Burglar”

Big deal, we have a Congress that daily masturbates to jerk off poor people.

Hungary, Budapest Times: “Happy To Be Gay”

Not in Hungary!

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Gaza To Get Coke Factory”

Was it blessed by rabbis to ensure it is kosher?

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Doctors Call Off Strike”

OK, so a few people died, but we did get a raise in pay!

I’m Not In The Working Class

I was raised in the South Bronx in a congressional district that contained thousands who regarded themselves as members of the working class. We carried the expression, “working class” with honor and we honored all those who worked as fellow comrades. Today, few Americans regard themselves as members of the working class because it makes them feel inferior. They believe themselves to members of the “middle class.” So, what do they enjoy in 2014 was members of this working class?

1. They have to pay off student loans while we members of the Depression working class received free college attendance.

2. They can not afford to purchase a home while we members of the working class belonged to unions which ensured we received wages that allowed purchasing a home.

3. They can not afford a vacation while we members of the working class took vacations.

4. They struggle to pay for their retirement while we working class people worked to create Social Security. Unfortunately, these “middle Class” people voted for members of Congress that seek to end Social Security rather than for political leaders who would have increased payments.

So, be happy that you are in the modern “middle Class.” On the other hand, how about joining the working class and elect congressmen who will increase jobs and pay??

Obama Salutes Those Who Served

They held a ceremony over the weekend to honor those who served in the war in Afghanistan. This was to honor the end of American military operations in that far off land. President Obama wanted to honor the brave members of the military and those civilians who had rises their lives in a war that was mishandled from day one. Unfortunately, 2,200 Americans were not able to attend this ceremony since they are dead. How about honoring those who caused this travesty?

1. Former Vice President Dick Cheney certainly deserves the Medal Of Honor for his ineptitude in getting us into a war that should have been handled very differently.

2. Former President George Bush deserves to place many medals on his chest since he failed to follow through on the initial days of victory because his heart lay further south in Iraq.

3. Former Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld deserves a medal of sending his notorious messages which offered no intelligent advice.

4. Former President Karzai does deserve a medal for creating the most corrupt government in the region.

5. And, a giant medal of honor to Fox News which made sure that Americans had absolutely no idea what was happening in Afghanistan, let alone about what should occur!

Zombie Nativity Scene Nixed

I confess to a complete lack of interest in Zombie movies, Walking Dead folks, ghouls and witches and little girls ready to chop off the heads of innocent people. Just never caught on to the rage for Walking Dead wandering the streets and eating corpses. A man in who lives in Sycamore Township just outside of Cincinnati is the owner of a haunted house and decided since his job in life is to frighten people why not continue to do so even during the Xmas holiday. As he explained, “I wanted a Nativity scene and I worked with what I had.” So, this is the Zombie Nativity scene that he created:

Baby Jesus with bruised eyes and a face filled with scars while teeth protruded from the infant’s mouth.

A severed head of a magi.

Three kings with skeletal faces and jaws open in screams.

Just a normal Nativity scene for those interested in the Walking Dead.

Each day a few dozen cars come by to witness yet another orgy of horror.

For some reason public officials are not pleased and he was sent the following notice: “REMOVE ACCESSORY STRUCTURES FROM FRONT YARD”

I guess Zombies do not have First Amendment Rights!

A Chat With Santa

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit Santa in the North Pole. He had asked what I want for Xmas, and my reply was to chat with the man who is actually beloved by members of the Tea Party and Barack Obama.

M: So, Santa, is there anything different about this Christmas from previous ones?

S: Well, to tell the truth it has been a rough one. Can you imagine what it is like getting this sleigh across open water when in the old days we had gobs of snow?

M: I hope you are not like those Socialist Liberals always complaining about the sol-called global warming?

S: Santa cares about all folks, whether or not they be liberals, socialists, or wealthy.

M: So, what did you bring to those working on Wall Street?

S: Actually,nothing. They already got their Xmas present in November. Bonuses and new laws to prevent them from paying any taxes.

M: Are you against those job creators?

S: Well, it would sort of help if we Santas got some health benefits, carrying those loads is mighty tough on my back.

M: I have always wondered if Santa ever got angry at anyone?

S: Have you ever dealt with little Teddie Cruz, he gets so angry if I leave some presents at the homeless shelter. He claims I am encouraging laziness and giving the money of those with wealth to a bunch of bums who live off the work of others. A real gem is little Teddie.

M: How do you feel about President Obama?

S: That is one curious dude. He could use a present of a good speech writer. I call him the Great Miscommunicator.

M: Anything for Vladimir Putin?

S: Vodka and a muzzle for his mouth is the best I can do.

M: Anything for Sarah Palin or Ms. Bachmann?

S: A bear to wrestle for Sarah and a history book for the woman who could use a bit of knowledge.

M: What can I get for you?

S: Snow would help.

Tunisia Beacon In Middle East

Americans have forgotten that the Arab Spring initially sprung up in the country of Tunisia. It was in that land where people rose up against a dictatorship which had been in power for over forty years. Tunisia is also a country in which secular Muslims have lived in peace with Christians and Jews. Yes, there are still some Jews living in Tunisia. At no point during the past few years have those with secular ideas been suppressed by a Tunisian government. The “Muslim” party of the land has worked with secular groups to restrain fundamentalists from imposing any form of Sharia law upon the people of Tunisia. The past few days a democratic election was held in which secular leader Beji Essebi won about 55% of the vote. There were a few scattered attempts to employ violence by fanatics but these were crushed by armed forces.

In other words, there is a democratic Muslim society in the Middle East. It has free elections and fanatics are challenged by the armed forces. I realize this is not what most Americans have been led to believe. Even Bill Manher is convinced that the Muslim religion is not appropriate to democracy. Sorry Bill, just check out Tunisia!

What Went Wrong In Iraq?

The history of the Iraq War has been a tale told by idiots bearing scant resemblance to what actually happened. From day one when Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld uttered lies about the so called Weapons of Mass Destruction until today, the American people have been fed one lie after another. There was no reason to have a war, and the hoax that began it simply continued day after day. The Bush decisions to fire every soldier in the Iraq War allowed thousands of men with weapons in their hands to initiate a civil conflict that continues today. Perhaps, the most critical mistake was a propaganda war which insisted the famous “Surge” led by General David Petraeus was the reason for reduction in fighting by al Qaeda.

The most important factor in crushing al Qaeda stemmed from creation of Awakening Councils led by Sunni tribes. They handled forces of Osama bin Laden and led to peace. American leaders obtained promises from Prime Minister Maliki that Sunni leaders would be integrated into the Iraq army and Sunni tribes treated with respect. That promise was broken by Shiite leader Maliki and today we live with consequences of his actions. He destroyed confidence among Sunnis and the child of his decision is ISIS.

Peace in Iraq will only come about if Shiite leaders seek to create a new Iraq. Simple as that.

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Anti-Theft Xmas Trees”

So, Santa, keep your hands to yourself!

Italy, Local: “In Italy, God Plans To Look Away”

Is that good or bad news for the Vatican?

Norway, Norway Post: “Effort To Promote Human Rights”

This is one story that has nothing to do with Kim Jong-un!

USA, aol: “What You Need To Know About About Gun Club?”

Oh well, it is just a matter of time before you WILL know about the gun club.

UK, Guardian: “Stay In Style”

There will be no changes in the style of Republican congressmen next year.

Goodbye Stephen Colbert

It has been for years part of my nightly behavior to tune into the Colbert show in order to enjoy the antics of our good friend who pretends to be a conservative defending the American way of life. But, as the expression goes, all good things must come to an end. During the course of my 84 years I have been part of the last show of many series such as MASH or Seinfeld Or All In The Family. I have always looked forward with anticipation to the last episode. I must confess that not a single last episode remains in my mind. They all conclude with a flat joke or nostalgia. Such was the last Colbert Report. Sort of warm and fuzzy with singing from God knows how many people. Can’t say that I was disappointed, just sad that a good show is now over.

Stephen, we will miss your antics. Have a good time on the new show.
