Why Kids Kill

Another mass killing, another ongoing debate as to why some 18 year old boy who was educated in German schools after coming from Iran decided to blast away at a mall and murder nine people. Ali Sonboly and family  immigrated from Iran and he spent his childhood in Germany, a nation that has accepted a few million people from the Middle East. After his murderous rampage in a mall and at McDonald’s, ‘experts’ are now discussing why he became a terrorist.

Class mates indicate that “at school, Ali was often  bullied by others and really unpopular.  He seemed to have  hardly any friends.” This description fits  the Columbine boys who murdered their class mates in Colorado. The difference this time is that Ali had opportunities to read books such as “Why Kids Kill” and to spend hours engaging in discussions with angry Muslims.

The reason kids kill is clear –they confronted lives in which they came to believe they were outsiders and it was time to get revenge.

 

 

 

 

Elect Me! I Will Solve ALL Problems!!

I have pondered this issue for many months,and reluctantly, very reluctantly, decided that my country needs me. So, I am going to run for president. So, what are my qualifications?

I, alone, without any help from anyone, will wipe out ISIS for once and all. Once ISIS leaders realize they are up against a nice Jewish boy from the south Bronx, they will surrender.

I, promise free college education for each and every person in America. Details are funding for t his project, will follow shortly.

I promise to end ALL terrorist attacks in Europe, in America, in Turkey, and any other country that now endures these terrorist attacks. I have already contacted Superman and have his cooperation.

Want a good paying job for at least $55,000, just vote for the Bronx kid.

I promise to end violence against cops, and  violence by cops against people. All it takes is some warm hugs and plenty of guns and ammunition for one and all.

Want to go back to mining coal? I promise to erect coal sites in every American city,  and anyone can go to the pile and get all the coal they want.

Apology, I do not have blond daughters or any junior to give a speech in my favor. However, I have read all Trump speeches and understand one must promise the moon, and deliver frozen Neptune.

P.S. To all Chicago folks, I promise the Cubs will win the World Series this year!

P.P.S. To all New York Knick fans, I promise the Knicks will win the NBA title!

Oh, I promise to appoint Ted Cruz to head a study on reducing the output of garbage in America.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Dick Cheney is for Trump, what better reason to vote for Hillary?

I assume the Trump children are auditioning to run for public office.

Donald missed a career as a salesman pitching medicine that cures all ills.

In fairness to Donald, he definitely believes America is a white nation, and he loves it.

At least Ted Cruz has the balls to refuse licking boots.

Some day Chris Christie is actually going to spend some time in New Jersey, the state of which he is governor. At this moment, all road construction has ceased in the state–no allocation of money.

Sorry, I  apologize to Chris, it is all the fault of Hillary for halt in road construction.

Description of the audience– a sea of white faces.

Gee, these days I really miss the happy administration of George Bush.

According to Donald, it is midnight in an America enduring storms and hurricanes.

Republicans On Trump

Mark Cuban isa  billionaire who also owns the Dallas Maverick NBA team. He has been an early supporter to Donald Trump,  but for some reason, has sort of turned against the guy from New York.

“I felt at the beginning he was a business person. I wanted to see change from the traditional politician. But, then he went and opened his mouth. He really did have a chance to change things, but, he doesn’t offer any plans. He is lazy.”

In reality, aside from his big mouth and his bombastic style of shouting and threatening and making people become frightened, Donald Trump does not read, he does not listen to others with differing ideas, he is truly intellectually lazy!

Jeff Roe, Cruz campaign manager on Chris Christie: “That guy turned over his political testicles long ago.” Now wait a second, there is nothing wrong with being a valet for a powerful man.

John Kass On Its Great To Be Nuts

Most days of the week, I begin my reading for the day by glancing through the Chicago Tribune in order to discover that columnist John Kass has surpassed his previous nonsense with just incredible nonsense. Mr. Kass is upset at President Obama for failing  until the Baton Rouge killings to finally defend our  wonderful cops. “He didn’t use the deaths–as he has in the  past– to politic for gun control or give wind to the anti-police grievances of the Black Lives Matter movement. This time the president offered a warning to Americans to tone down the rhetoric.”

Let me get this straight. Gun violence arises from anyone being able in this country to get a gun. So, the solution is to cease any and all campaigns against possession of guns! I assume, according to  the Kass logic, if we do nothing to prevent reducing ownership of guns,this will result in the end of gun violence! You have to understand those seeking to reduce access to weapons of destruction are really the ones who are responsible for people having access to high powered weapons! These politically correct characters are the real cause of gun violence.

I hate to inform this politically nonsense writer that MOST POLICE DEPARTMENTS SUPPORT REDUCING EASY ACCESS TO HIGH POWERED WEAPONS. WHY? Because you idiot, THEY are the ones who get killed!!

Let’s Have A Dialogue

These days the normal event on CNN or other newscasts is to offer the ideas of people who allegedly represent views of people ranging from frustrated, angry whites, to blacks demanding Black Lives Matter.

COPS ARE OK

Usually, this speaker was once a cop or is a recognized “expert”on cops. He (I have yet to hear, she)begins with assurances that he cares about blacks and Hispanics. At some point in the presentation he will emphasize: “Yes, we do see the policeman pointing and shooting his revolver. Yes, we do see the black man slumped on the seat apparently dead. BUT, we do not have the entire series of events. We don’t see the entire situation because certain angles are not shown. If we had those scenes, it would make clear the policeman was only trying to save his life. NO cop wants to kill innocent black people, but being a cop is a dangerous occupation,and sometimes one must fire before the criminal fires in order to save a life–that of the policeman.”

This “expert” always emphasizes in concluding his concern for all black folks,and makes clear it is the police who prevent black criminals from killing black people.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

A spokes person for Black Lives Matter insists any dialogue concerning the murder of black people by white copes must focus on these murders, and any reference to how the majority of black Americans die as a result of  violence must  be halted. The belief is that any discussion as to how most African Americans die violently must only deal with white cops or evil white businessmen. If someone  uses the expression, ALL LIVES MATTER it is refuted as an attempt to lessen the murder of blacks by white cops. Of course, in numerous cases of such killings,the cop in question was a black cop.

WE HAVE A PROBLEM

The latest person to enter this debate is the calm, usually, black commentator who believes it is time for ALL Americans to confront THE problem of racism in America. Repeatedly, the listener hears that America has a PROBLEM. The answers are:

All Americans must come together.

All Americans must engage in a dialogue.

The nation is DIVIDED.

Cops must become more community centered.

Somehow, in some way, if we Americans will begin to discuss the issue of racism, we could see some light at the end of the tunnel.

ME

Without law there can be no Order.

I would like to see presented some concrete new laws that address these issues.

Of course, what I would really welcome is One NEW idea!

So, Where Is Crime In America?

CNN always has someone on its panel who represents the “police” version of what is transpiring in our nation. This individual invariably notes that crime is rampant in black and Hispanic areas so it is only natural that most halted by police are black or Hispanic. They argue it is not the fault of police for  halting blacks, it is a normal outcome from the fact that if police have to enter black crime areas, it means they will have to confront more blacks and Hispanics during the course of a day.

This rationale comes across as logical, and provides reasons for cops to halt those with dark skins or those who speak Spanish. HOWEVER, where exactly are the centers of crime in America?

1. MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of people lost their homes, their life savings due to criminal behavior of Wall Street bankers and salesmen.

2. Untold thousands of people lost thousands and thousands of dollars because lying college salesmen got them to enroll  in fly-by-night “colleges”which were really sham outfits ripping off people who did not know much about  colleges. Talk about places with high crime rates!

3. Check out those friendly stores that offer to cash checks for those without savings accounts, or loan someone in need of a few hundred dollars who now pays back a few thousand to loan sharks. Has ANY COP entered those centers of nonstop crime??

4. Each year a few thousand people are subject to the Nigerian promise of millions for a few thousand from you. Has any cop investigated these crimes?

A visit to Wall street will enable any cop in this land to encounter criminals  who do not steal a few hundred dollars, but millions and millions and no COP ever halts these crimes!

My Buddy, Saddam Hussein

Donald Trump once again displayed his incredible knowledge of the Middle East an its leaders. There is no question when it comes to understanding what has transpired in the Middle East, Donald is our best guide to the war in Iraq that was begun by George Bush. As you recall, Bush had this incredible misunderstanding of Saddam Hussein, and invaded Iraq and murdered a champion of human rights.

Only Donald really understands why Saddam Hussein was a wonderful man who fought for human rights. “Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right” But, did you know what he did well? He killed terrorists.He did that so good. They didn’t cared about rights. He didn’t talk. They were a terrorist, it was over.”

Huh? There was no al-Qaeda. There was no ISIS. The “terrorists” were people fighting for human rights!! If ignorance was a virtue, Donald Trump would be an angel.

Oh, That Iraq War

Unlike the United States which has refused to examine reasons for the Iraq War, the English government established the Chilcot commission several years ago in order to determine the how and why  of England’s entry into the war. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair testified and he did recall informing President Bush “I will be with you what ever.” He now makes clear he regrets making such a pledge. “I express my sorrow more than you can ever believe.”

Let me get this clear. Over four thousand American soldiers died in the war in Iraq and over 30,000 were wounded. So far, our Congress has empowered seven committees to examine the death of FOUR Americans at Benghazi. But, the death of four  thousand is of no interest to Congressional Republicans!!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I do miss the eloquent words of Ben Carson even though I never understood one of them.

Donald Trump has a great career awaiting as a salesman of medicine that cures all illnesses.

Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump, between them at least six wives.

Just think, in 1952 many Americans would not vote for Adlai Stevenson because he was–DIVORCED!

Bill Clinton has an incredible propensity to create problems for his wife.

This is not the worst of times, but it sure heck is not the best of times.

We learn that all humans are flawed, the question is which flaw is the worst one?
