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

There are those who will compromise and those who will not.

Jaw,jaw, never war, war.

Some speak out of both sides of mouth, some never speak.

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?

There was the Holocaust and there were plans to raise taxes, which was worse?

Is there one thing Barack Obama has done that pleases Fox News?

I do not know what fate awaits me.

Cuban Nights And Days

For the past half century there has been one idea that all American politicians agree upon- it is a crime to speak with anyone connected with the evil Cuban government. After all, how could we Americans engage in dialogue with a nation that is run by an evil ruler? Never utter any words to anyone who belongs to that bad country. We Americans stand for freedom and oppose any and all agreements with dictators such as the Castro boys.

1. Richard Nixon opened diplomatic relations with the really evil Chinese Communist government.

2. St. Ronald Reagan met and negotiated with the evil Communist leader, Gorbachev.

3. John F. Kennedy negotiated with Communist leaders.

4. The US currently has relations with at least twenty nations whose leader is dictatorial.

BUT, NO RELATIONS WITH CUBA!

President Obama will be in Panama for a Latin American summit. He WILL speak with Raul Castro and hopefully persuade him to end imprisonment of opposition leaders and enable Cubans to have greater access to the Internet. At least he might slightly expand the limits of dissent for those in Cuba. Just another talk with another dictator, which means things are normal.

Oh, there is freedom of religion in Cuba although there is no freedom of religion in our ally, Saudi Arabia!

Ayatollahs Speak

There are times when I can not tell the difference between the Great Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and leaders of the Republican party in Congress. Both have problems with the recent agreement between Iran and the six powers. On one hand, the Ayatollah said the agreement maintained the honor of Iran, but on the other hand, he has deep concerns with the agreement. He, along with Bibi Netanyahu and John Boehner wants some changes.

1. He insists that sanctions end yesterday.

2. He does not want the west to examine military sites.

3. “I am neither for or against the deal.

4. “NO deal is better than a bad deal.”

5. “The other side may want to stab us in the back.”

6. “It is too early for congratulations”

Bib Netanyahu

1. No deal is better than a bad deal

2. Iran is ready to stab us in the back

3. It is too early for congratulations.

4. I do not oppose a deal with Iran, only this is a bad deal.

From one Ayatollah to another!

People With Bad Ideas

There is a popular view among conservatives in America that the cause of all and any problem in this nation stems from those who have bad ideas. Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, you name the person, and they will carefully explain that we do not have any economic or social issues in this nation, any and all problems stem from the bad ideas of that man in the White House. According to Fox News this nation is engaged in a great war, and the war is all about who has the right ideas. Naturally, those with bad ideas are members of the Democratic party and all it takes to get this nation back to happiness and prosperity is to elect people who have the right ideas.

BAD IDEAS

Raise taxes on wealthy. This idea violates the Ten Commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ

Give people food stamps. They will just spend the money on liquor and gambling.

Rebuild our infrastructure, this leads to people driving on Sunday when they should be in church praying.

Talk rather than shoot when encountering a black boy on the streets.

Enable women to get power in business, that means they are not at home with the kids.

Pass a law in Congress that controls business power, this means less money from lobbyists.

Then again, pass any law in Congress.

Talk with Iran rather than bombing that land.

Oppose our greatest mind in the Middle East, Bibi Netanyahu.

Oh, for people with GOOD IDEAS!

Where Has Water Gone?

A little tune for those in the state of California.

Where has all the water gone
Long time since I saw it
Where has all the water gone
Long time since I drank it

Where has all the water gone
In this state of drought
Where has all the water gone
From this parched mouth?

Republicans say God is angry
Republicans say weather is just normal
Republicans insist nothing has changed
Just get on knees and God will hear

Where has all the water gone
We know water is really here
Just vote for Jeb
And, watch that water flow!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “Melancholy News”

Republicans still control Congress

France, Connexion: “Nuns Take To Flight”

One way to get out of traffic jams.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “$10 For Vote”

Not when the Koch brothers are in town!

Norway, Norway Post: “Give Women Right To Stay Home”

A Tea Party plea for equal rights for women.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Need More Writers Of Color”

Which color?

Wither My England?

There will be an election in England next month which will determine in one way or another whether or not that nation remains in the European Union. On the right is the UKIP whose goals is hating immigrants and getting the UK out of the EU. Conservative leader David Cameron will say anything in order to get elected, but who knows what he will do if he is elected? Ed Miliband of the Labor Party has many interesting ideas but lacks the skill to get across his ideas. He definitely opposes leaving the EU. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair told Miliband, “a decision to exit Europe will say a lot about us, and none of it would be good.”

The fight in England is similar to the fight in America about illegal immigrants. We need these people in order to go about our daily lives but many hate what they need. Immigrants to the United Kingdom have helped to raise its economic growth and they do the dirty work that those born in the UK will not do. Another example of how hate blinds people about the reality of their lives. I am certain that if Cameron wins, he will NOT exist the European Union and he will NOT halt immigration. Without immigrants, who picks up the garbage of our daily lives??

On The Death Penalty

A jury has found Tsarnaev Dzhokhar guilty of the crime of murdering people and causing dozens to have terrible wounds. The decision was the only one possible. Frankly,I thought the Defense Counsel made a blunder by even going before a jury. He should have pleaded Guilty and thrown the boy on the mercy of a judge. In the famous Leopold-Loeb case when two young men murdered a little boy, the famous Clarence Darrow used this approach and then made a famous argument against the death penalty. He saved the lives of these two young men. Leopold went on to allow his body to be used for medical experiments during WWII, and became a world known expert on birds. He was released in his fifties.

This boy in Boston who murdered the innocent in Boston did not display any remorse which only led the jury to bring in a verdict without any mention of mercy. It is now up to a judge as to whether or not he dies. The crime was horrible. He has never stated his sorrow. This young man is begging for death. If he were to live, life in prison would be a nightmare for him as other convicts would punish him on a daily basis. So, what to do? I am now of the opinion that a life sentence is the worst result for this unfortunate young man. There will come times when he wishes he had died.

Just Wash Your Hands

The Turkish Directorate of Religious Affairs has just issued a fatawa. NO, it is not against the bad people who are murdering thousands of Muslims in the Middle East. NO, it is not against beheading of Muslims, No, it is not against bombing hospitals or schools, this fatawa is about an important issue for the Muslim people of Turkey. The fatawa states that under certain conditions it is OK for Muslims to use toilet paper when wiping their behind after a shit. Ordinarily, according to this religious group, one must wipe the behind with water, but then again one might be in the desert so this does allow for bringing along some toilet paper to do the wiping. But, if you live in a city then please wipe the behind with water in order to avoid doing something bad.

Here are some other pieces of advice from this organization.

People who beg in order to get money beyond their immediate needs are “demanding the fire of Hell.”

If substances containing alcohol spill on a dress or the body they must be washed before uttering a prayer.

I guess God really does observe what we do!

With God On Our Side

With God’s blessing, Rand Paul is running for president, Ted Cruz insists that he is merely dong what the Lord told him by seeking to become the next president, Jeb became a Catholic in order to do what God wants, Rick Perry can not make a statement without invoking the Lord. Sarah Palin talks with God every day and Marco Rubio thanks God for getting his family our of Cuba. Here are some other examples of how
God has blessed the American people.

With God on their side, Europeans wiped out the Indians with guns and germs.

With God on both sides, 600,000 died in the Civil War.

Naturally, God was on the side of those who kept slaves.

With God on our side we went to Asia in order to uplift some folk.

With God on both sides World War I led to the death of millions.

We had God on our side as we defeated Nazi Germany and then we asked God to get on their side to beat the Russians.

Where does God get the time to be on our side?

Oh, I forgot, God is on the side of Muslim fanatics!
