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

I feel cheated when my pen runs out of ink.

She sits gazing at screen, mom arrives to gaze at screen, another lunch by daughter and mother.

I wonder if they celebrate Christmas on other planets.

I wonder if there was ever a day without a human murder.

I adjust to any and all situations in life.

Doctor told me no more coffee. Such is life.

I so enjoy hot soup on cold days.

As we grow older we seek restaurants closer to where we live.

I have always been a short gait walker.

In the end there will be a new beginning.

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!

Shoot First, Think Later

Most Americans are still in shock from the brutal murder of two police officers in New York City who were shot by a deranged African American male. Mayor de Blasio is blamed for this killing because he dared to challenge members of the police department to be careful before they fired their weapons. Such talk for some members of the New York Police Department is simply evidence that the mayor wants them killed. I doubt if any New York cops will be furious at the act of murder by Milwaukee police officer Christopher Manney. He respond to a call about a man sleeping on a bench. He tried to frisk the man which resulted in a scuffle and the man somehow got possession of his baton and hit him with it. What else could Manney do but blast away and fire FOURTEEN bullets into the body of Dante Hamilton, an individual who had been classified as suffering from schizophrenia?

Manney insists that he acted in self defense. I assume New York cops will now be furious at Edward Flynn, police chief in Milwaukee who fired Manney on grounds that “you don’t go hands-on and start frisking somebody because they appear to be mentally ill.” Naturally the police association in Milwaukee is on the side of Manney and passed a resolution against Flynn. Yes, being a cop is a dangerous occupation, yes, being a cop leads to situations of ambiguity, but being a cop means one must act with care and firing a weapon is an action of the LAST RESORT!

Jeb Bush Sort Of Likes Obamacare

Each day there are more and more signs that Jeb Bush will seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States of America. You can expect him to blast Obamacare as the worst event in modern history since it only provided health care for the poor and did not do anything for job creators. Well, actually, Jeb and his fellow Republican job creators sort of like this law because they can make money. And, whenever a job creator makes some money, they have every right to denounce health care as long as they make dough from it. Jeb just announced that he was stepping down from his job on the Board of Directors of Tenet Healthcare Corporation. From 2007 to 2013 Jeb was paid $2.3 million from a company that has made a few hundred million since it has received thousands of folks who are covered by the infamous health care law. According to Al Fernandez, former head of the Republican party in Florida, “all the public wants to know is that you behaved honorably and that you care for them.”

Mitt Romney cared for the people of Massachusetts, when as governor he fought for a health care program which is a twin for the Obama one. The moral of this story is: as long as we make money we will do so even it requires following laws that we hate.

Terrorism In Saudi Arabia

I understand the concern of America’s social media over events in Syria and Iraq where ISIS is beheading people, murdering and raping, and having a jolly time this Xmas proving that infidels fail to adhere to the precepts of the Muslim religion. There is no doubt that terrorism is among the key events in the Middle East, but for some reason, few Americans are paying attention to the outbreak of terrorism in Saudi
Arabia. As you recall, we feel horror at the use of beheading by ISIS. But, for some strange reason there has never been any out cry of anger at beheading in our deal and faithful ally, Saudi Arabia. For every person who had been beheaded by ISIS, ten were beheaded in Saudi Arabia.

And, how many stories have been presented by Fox News over the latest acts of terrorism in Saudi Arabia? Two female terrorists were caught by Saudi officials. Loujain al-Hathlouli and Maya al-Amoudi were caught red handed for carrying out their terrorism plan in public. These notorious criminals decided to drive their cars! And, to make it worse, they attacked laws of Saudi Arabia on social media. Well, you can sleep in peace tonight, the two terrorists will shortly be before the Terrorist Court where hopefully they will receive a sentence of beheading!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

France, Connexion: “Ski Season Opens With No Snow”

Now you know why we need a Republican president in the White House!

USA, Washington Post: “Court Rules On Nativity Scene”

In the spirit of the season it must include a Jewish Menorah.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Xmas Cheer Helped By Beer”

I’ll drink to that one!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Is Ruble Crisis A Conspiracy?”

I believe a few dollars will solve this plot.

Norway, Norway Post: “Norway And Gaza To Host Conference”

I assume the Norwegians will bring some snow.

ISIS Got A Prisoner!

It was simply a matter of time before a plane was shot down or experienced engine failure before a pilot bombing ISIS positions fell into their hands. A plane flown by a pilot from Jordan, Lt. Muadhi al Kasabeh, age 26, was captured when he ejected from his jet and landed in a lake where he was captured by joyous ISIS soldiers. Videos depict them leading the pilot with arms draped around the shoulder of the downed pilot. So, what is next on the agenda of life?

1. Republican Congressmen will blame President Obama for not preventing planes from having engine problems.

2. Republican Congressmen will blame President Obama for allowing planes to be shot down by ISIS.

3. Fox News will have an interview with Dick Cheney who will point out that under the Administration of George Bush no pilot was shot down!

4. Fox News commentators will demand sending in Special Forces to free the pilot.

5. President Obama will urge calm in America, then head for Hawaii for his vacation.

6. There will not be a single demonstration in the US, after all, he is a Jordanian.

7. ISIS will promise a beheading and tease the world with several mock trials.

8. Vladimir Putin will offer to go in by himself and free the pilot.

Rush Limbaugh Upset

The past few years have been difficult ones for Rush Limbaugh, a black man who was born in Africa is president of the United States, clear violation of what our white only Founding Fathers wanted for this nation. Add on passage of laws that provide health care to the poor, a violation of what Jesus Christ wanted in this world. Everyone knows that blond haired, blue eyed Jesus wanted the poor to suffer from poverty so they would have a better chance to make it to Heaven where they could work as servants to the wealthy who enjoy a free pass into that hotel in the sky. Now Rush is really angry. Listen to his words of concern. “But now, they are suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Britain, rather than a white from Scotland. But, this is not who James Bond is, and I know this is racist top probably point this out.”

Hell NO, Rush, it is so wonderful that you insist James Bond be a Scot who is white skinned. For God’s sake, next they will have women playing roles for men in violation of what Shakespeare wanted. Once we allowed the Black Dude who was born in Africa to become our leader is was simply a matter of time before them blacks demanded the right to play James Bond. James Bond was supposed to be a Scot just like Sean Connery. Oh, Roger Moore who played the role was from England, Pierce Brosnan was Irish and George Laznenby was from Australia, the home of criminals. I thank God we have Rush to continue fighting for the right of white Christians with blond hair and blue eyes such as those possessed by our Lord Jesus Christ to enjoy all the benefits of power in our society.

Gee Rush, how do we handle that minor problem that Jesus was a Jew, and not allowed in your Country Club??

Pope Francis Frankness Angers US Cubans

About half a century ago, thousands of Cubans fled their native land when Fidel Castro overthrew a dictator and established a communist government. Today, Cuba is among the few “communist” societies that is still based upon communist economic concepts and political ideas conceding which freedom should be allowed the people. A high percent of those who initially left Cuba were from the middle or upper classes of society. They departed with anger at loss of property, of business, of power. Today, many in Florida have not forgotten what they lost and continue hating the Castro boys. There is growing anger within this group of Catholic without a Pope.” Miguel Saavedia now believes “the church is contaminated” because Pope Francis worked to end isolation of Catholics in Cuba. Antonio Suarez-Ramos is ready to hear an announcement from Pope Francis that gays can become priests.

Reality check: Most polls reveal that those under the age of 35 in Florida who are Catholics tracing their ancestors to Cuba refugees now believe it is time for diplomatic relations with Cuba. They understand that those living in Cuba now just might, and I mean, “just might” have a chance to witness relaxation of communist ideas and growth of free enterprise opportunities. It is all well and good for those in Florida to insist continue present policies, but they do not have to live with them each day of their lives. After all, after sixty years of the same, what is the problem in at least attempting something new. Thank God for Pope Francis whose only concern is the welfare of fellow Catholics!

NOODY ASKED ME BUT

Some enjoy a life of anger and hate.

Some await coming of the Lord. Me, I prefer coming to the Lord.

I do not like people near me when in McDonalds.

Some flee from happiness.

I miss the days when I only had two choices about what to eat.

Some fold hands when another is speaking.

Gang credo of my childhood: “never pick on a smaller kid, that is the mark of a coward.

People need moments of peace during the day.

Children love having picture taken.

Tall women walk with determined look.
