Children Headed To Death

There is increasing controversy over the issue as to why many young people in European nations decide the world in which they live simply does not meet their needs for-something. Three young teen girls fled from the United Kingdom, got to Turkey, and somehow made their way across that nation to the safety of Syria where they hoped to find some meaning to their lives. There is no doubt they received assistance in England and they certainly got help in Turkey. After all, three English speaking girls had to make their way across a foreign land and get across the border into Syria. The issue that western people refuse to confront is-why do some young people who were raised in democratic societies flee to the arms of violence and hate? It is quite clear they discover in the words of hatred a missing aspect of their society.

The quest in modernity is for a sense of meaning. We provide youth with technology and money and propaganda that extols the importance of material things only to discover that some young people hunger for a sense they are doing something that transcends their material existence and provides a sense of self worth. Consumerism does not provide that emotion. So, in their ignorance, they embrace death. They hurry towards hate and fear and brutality from which they can obtain a sense of meaning. Ironically, in the age of technology, primitive thinking attracts some young people. Never forget that we are only a few hundred years from our violent ancestors.

Ignorance Is Bliss To Republicans

The Republican ongoing mantra is that any and all problems in Iraq are the fault of Barack Obama who failed to support the Iraq army and thus led to the rise of ISIS or ISIL or IS, whatever you desire to term that group of murderers. Lost in Republican arguments is any sense of what happened in the Middle East ever since George Bush created a mess that will last for decades. The invasion of Iraq was the greatest foreign policy blunder in American history and it came under the administration of the Republican party. Examine the current situation in Iraq:

1. ISIS took power when four divisions of the Iraq army simply dropped their weapons and fled the battle ground.

2. The Iraq government led by Prime Minister Maliki-who was placed in power by George Bush– attacked Sunnis and created ISIS.

3. President Obama fought to create a new Iraq government.

5. This government, like all Iraq governments since the end of Saddam Hussein, gazes to Iran for help.

6. An Iranian trained Iraq army is now poised to recapture Tikrit and head for Mosul.

According to General Dempsey “There is no doubt that the combination of Popular Mobilisation Forces and the Iraq Security Forces are going to run ISIS out of Tikrit.”

George Bush won another victory in Iraq. His enemy, Iran, just got more power in that land.

So, blame the situation on Barack Obama.

The Fire This Time

The event occurred outside the headquarters of the Ferguson, Missouri police department. There is no doubt this incident will be welcomed by those who work for Fox news since it proves once again that there is no war against black Americans in this land, but the group which remains at risk is those with white skins. Two WHITE police officers were simply standing at the steps of headquarters gazing off in the distance while a small group of BLACK people were protesting. I have no idea why black folks should be protesting against white men since we all know the primary directive in the Ferguson police department is to protect citizens from this community against violence. Oh, I realize there are some MUSLIM terrorists in this community whose only goal in life is to murder innocent white people, but if not for the support these bad people receive from blacks, this community would be at peace.

It was simply a matter of time before the fires of hate exploded against white cops in Ferguson. The fires last time led to the death of black males and if hate is unleashed upon a land, the end result is that All who reside will eventually become its target. Unfortunately yesterday, two innocent whites were shot and wounded. Someone has to extinguish the fires of hate in order to bring peace to all in Ferguson.


We offer observation on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.


Members of Congress must pass a test on American history before taking their seats.

I am 84 years old, but have never encountered such hate as exists in Congress against the president.

To love America is to adhere to our traditions.

I wonder if this current world of hatred in America is the future or just the present?

Ah , for the days when Republicans and Democrats played softball with one another.

Ah, for the days when Republican President Reagan had Democrats over for a game of poker.

There are moments when I do not recognize this America.


I have devoted my life to the study of American history and are quite knowledgeable regarding how those in different political parties interacted with one another. We do know about the history of the American presidency. Forty seven American United States senators sent a letter to the leaders of Iran which is a first in our nation’s history. They warned the leaders of Iran that once Barack Obama left office, a Republican president might void any agreement their nation signs with the US and other major powers. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION THAT A GROUP OF OPPOSITION MEMBERS OF CONGRESS CHALLENGED THE PRESIDENT WHEN HE WAS ENGAGED IN DISCUSSIONS WITH FOREIGN POWERS! It has alway been an assumption that our president conducts foreign relations. When Republican President Richard Nixon opened diplomatic relations with Communist China there were those in this nation who felt he had no right to negotiate with “Godless Communists” but no member of the Democratic party sent letters to Communist Chinese leaders.

The most ironic aspect of this Republican behavior is they have been yelling for six years that President Obama is not really an American who understands American culture! The 47 US Senators are traitors to this nation. They lack any understanding of separation of powers in our government. This is among the most disgraceful acts in the history of the United States of America. No, Barack Obama was not born in Africa, but 47 US Senators were not born in this nation!

International Women’s Day

Well, it is that time of the year when we decide to devote an entire day focused upon the world of women and their struggle for being regarded on an equal basis with men. I believe we males should be proud that we are willing one day of the year to recognize that women in the workplace do encounter a few issues. A young woman who works in England described her encounters with those of the male sex. “The male friends I have at work are the same as me. They occasionally think being funny is more important than being nice. They’re neurotic, forceful when they think they’e right and not afraid to say ‘this is wrong, fix it’ and sometimes get things wrong. But, at the end of the day I’m still the bitch.” In other words, they will interact with women, joke with them, tease them, but it must always be clear that she is a woman and they are men. On International Women’s Day this professional woman had to make these comments but also made clear that she could not use her name. After all, her buddies at work want the world to know that some of their best friends are women.

Yes, we have come a long way, but, in reality we are closer to the starting line than to the end of this race for equality. The quest for equality is over when a person is a colleague, not a female colleague. One must alter minds to recognize that all at work are simply fellow workers and their sex is completely unimportant–AT WORK! Sex is for after work.

Come Home To Israel!

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged Jews living in Denmark to return home to the safety of Israel after ONE Jew in that nation was killed by Muslim extremists. Bibi is concerned that those who have fellow people in his land are safer within the confines of Israel than in nations in which they are subject to violence. About one in five people living in Israel is a Muslim, and, I assume being a citizen of Israel means that your government is concerned with your safety. Yesterday in the violent nation of the United States of America still another Muslim was murdered by those who hate Muslims. Ahmad al-Jumaili was taking pictures of the snow fall when a couple of American violent haters decided to shoot him. He was in the supposedly quiet city of Dallas, but that did not prevent his murder. Of course a week ago Muslims were subject to having their Islamic center burned in the peaceful city of Houston.

Of course, two Muslims were brutally murdered in North Carolina. I therefore urge Bibi Netanyahu to offer safety to one and all Muslims in America who are in threat of their life in America. Come home to the safety of Israel!


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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Absurd Hurdle”

A president who must allow Congress to supervise foreign policy.

USA, aol: “Smitten By The Police”

These days I would prefer to be smitten than smitten with a gun.

France, Connexion: “Be Tough And Smack Kids’

Just remember that in many households kids have access to guns!

Canada, Toronto Globe: ” I Am Going To Mars”

At last some place without Republican crazies!

Denmark,Copenhagen Post; “You Can Never Go Back”

The real issue is what is going on in that back?

Israel Rally For Peace

The Republican party of Israel, oops, I mean the Israel equivalent of the Republican party, insists that ISRAEL stands with Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and that when he speaks, he speaks for ALL JEWS throughout the world. A mass rally was held in Israel and the estimates of how many attended range from 40,000 to 80,000. It is quite clear that these citizens of Israel do NOT believe Bibi is their leader. Among the speakers a the rally was Meir Dagan, former head of Mossad. “I’m not a politician or a public servant,and I’m not here out of personal aspirations or in search of appointments, the only party to which I belong is the state of Israel.” He went on to emphasize that Israel is a nation that is surrounded by enemies, but the only real enemy is “our leadership.”

The main threat to the existence of Israel is and has always been, one, Benjamin Netanyahu. He has failed:

to resolve issues with Palestinians.
he has over reacted to the death of three Israel children by murdering 1500 innocent civilians in Gaza.
he has absolutely NO alternative plan to deal with Iran other than shout for ware!

Shame Of India

It is increasingly clear there is a war being waged in the nation of India. No,the enemy is NOT Muslim terrorists or jihadists, but the women of that land. Leslie Udwin made a film entitled, “India’s Daughter” which has aroused the anger of the government. The film depicts a rape of a young woman who took a bus at night in order to get home. Unknown to her the bus driver and his friends decided that any woman who took the bus home at night was apparently some prostitute of some gal that simply wanted to get raped. That simply is the story which includes interview with rapists who boast of their right to sexually assault andy and all women traveling at night away from home. No, the rape is not angering the government of India. Yes, the film which discusses the rape is infuriating the government of India. According to high level government officials it is not the rape which defames India, but reporting of the rape! Such films create ” fear” and “tension” so they must be banned form being shown.

According to Ms. Udwin, “the supreme irony is that they are now accusing me of having wanted tho point fingers at India, defame India, and is is they who have committed international suicide by banning the film.” I await a judge informing a jury that the defendant is the wronged one in this case because foreigners have defamed his name. What the hell is going on in India??
