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!

We Are Surrounded!

The election in Israel is over and Bibi Netanyahu is still the prime minister. There is one thing that is certain in life, leaders of Israel will shout to the rooftops that there nation is surrounded and therefore it is imperative to take the first step in defense by attacking Gaza. IN 2013 this Muslim entity was invaded by Israel causing the death of 39 and the wounding of 3,964. In 2014 Gaza was invaded which resulted in the death of 2,314 and the wounding of 17,124. As you will recall this invasion originated because some Muslim men murdered three innocent Jewish boys. It only stands to reason and fairness that if three Jews are murdered, then 2,000 Muslims must be killed including 1600 innocent men, women and children. I usually get many Jews upset because of my refusal to buy into the chant that innocent Israel is surrounded by Arab states that only seek to kill each and every Jew in that land. Examine the record:

Egypt has not fought a war in nearly forty years and its army lacks the capability to challenge the IDF.

Jordan can hardly keep under control its minority which is composed of Palestinians.

Lebanon lacks any armed force although it does have Hamas and thousands of missiles. An attack on Israel would unleash the full force of the IDF.

Saudi Arabia has never fought a war against any major power.

Syria?

Iraq?

Israel has 80 atomic bombs including submarines that can fire nuclear weapons.

What was that again about being “surrounded?”

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Bibi Netanyahu is the poor man’s Ted Cruz.

I have a hunch if Jesus showed up he would be termed a “welfare cheat.” Did he ever have a job?

Oh, for a day without someone getting their head chopped off.

I wonder if Bill O’Reilly was at the inauguration of Lincoln?

There should be a law against snow in March.

I have nothing against snow in the Arctic.

We should be paid by the NCAA to spend ten hours watching basketball games.

So, What Goes On Facebook?

There is an ongoing problem for those who run Facebook since several nations in the world define “defamation” as synonymous with writing the truth about dictatorial regimes. Turkey has numerous laws which make it a crime to say anything about the Armenian genocide, oops, I just broke the laws of Turkey by employing those two words-Armenians and genocide. China constantly demands removal of comments that represent the idea of free speech because in the land of China those in authority decide who can speak and what anyone can say. Thus the issue confronting Mark Zuckerberg is whether or not to accept these restrictions and allow Facebook to continue functioning around the world. Imagine if Nazi Germany was around and Hitler decided what could or could not be stated on Facebook?

I do not know the answer to this question. It must be extremely difficult for Zuckerberg to run an organization which daily confronts issues of free speech. I admire him for his efforts to continue Facebook as an an important institution while at the same time being controlled by petty dictators. This is one complex problem that is the complex problem for Mark, not Fred!
