NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I always avoid parking in places that I should not park in.

Bagels in my childhood were one penny. I will have to await Heaven to once again pay that price.

Sign said: “Get in touch With God” I prefer that He get in touch with me.

I hate huge cars that take control of parking slots.

I walked by a college girl who said on her cell phone: “I am all alone and can’t handle it.” I wanted to hug her but to do so would land me in jail.

My dream is to be abducted by aliens and taken to their planet. At least no Tea Party around.

In the old days men sold stuff by traffic lights, I no longer see them.

I was told that to rent I need home insurance, isn’t this my call?

I wonder if there are lawyers in Heaven?

If ignorance was a virtue, Ted Cruz would be a saint in heaven.

I found a weather beaten dime. I wonder what is its story?

When my wife and I enter a car dealer establishment the salesman always comes to me. I make clear she makes car decisions.

If Barack Obama is on the “left,” then who is in the center?

Mystery of one young man and five attractive girls.

I saw a man with tee shirt, “Keep Dodgers In Brooklyn.” Only sixty years too late.

If three people walking, chances are the one in middle does more of the talking.

I have only been on a tour bus about three times in life, three times too many.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Humans so frequently refer to God’s Wrath, is it themselves who are filled with anger?

I wonder if celibacy arose because there is no Mrs. God?

At age 84, I so like the word, “rebirth.”

One does not gain wisdom from age, it comes from an inquiring mind.

People at computers reach point where they lean back and gaze.

Since computers think, do they ever think about other computers?

There are sounds from my youth which never again will be heard.

Two lonely iPads met for lunch.

There is no doubt one must speak exiting the coffee shop on that damn cell phone!

Tea Party folk hate God’s work-people– but insist they like God!

Bomb And Chop

The actions of ISIS cause confusion among those in America who believe that wars contain rules of behavior. ISIS insists that chopping off the heads of innocent people is a logical result of bombs falling on their warriors in the field of action. For an ISIS soldier, murdering the innocent is allowed by God who for some reason only prefers certain humans over other humans. We who inhabit civilized societies are horrified at such behavior. Unfortunately for those who will be brutally murdered, killing the innocent is simply how we humans have always behaved. It was just sixty years ago that the most educated and among the most “civilized” societies brutally gassed and murdered babies. Nazi Germany was a Christian nation. Of course, the Soviet Union, led by Joseph Stalin murdered an estimated twenty million. Then, of course, there was China, led by Mao tse-tung who allowed at least twenty million to starve to death.

I am not excusing the brutal behavior of ISIS. As they chop off heads, over in Saudi Arabia they not only chop off heads, but arms. We are all HUMANS. As Humans we simply can not halt murder and killing and always ensuring that the innocent die. Within a few days, Peter Kassig, who was trying to help people in Syria will be murdered. As long as we humans prefer death to life, the innocent always will die. Such is the human condition!

Life Before ISIS

It is difficult these days getting through 24 hours without encountering predictions the world will shortly collapse because there are 30,000 black clad guys in the desert seeking to kill every American before midnight arrives. The assumption of Fox News pundits is America is confronting a new threat to its very existence from this group of terrorists. So, I was wondering, what was the situation prior to their arrival on the scene?

1. The Iraq government under Prime Minister Maliki had caused havoc and disunity within the country by persecuting Sunnis. Bombs were being exploded every day of the week.

2. Saudi Arabia was chopping off heads at least twice a month. And, no one protested!

3. Syria was claiming the lives of thousands each month and over 2,000,000 had fled.

4. There were terrorists in Somalia who bombed and bombed. They even set off bombs in Nairobi.

5. President Sisi in Egypt was killing hundreds of members of the Brotherhood, and locking up thousands.

6. Libya was in chaos.

7.Boko Haram was kidnapping hundreds of young girls and murdering at will.

I will halt here since I could get into the situation in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
