Another Missouri Day

I spent forty years of my life working in the state of Missouri and many days were in rural areas of the state where I taught teachers. If there is one place I know well, it is southern Missouri where segregation was still around up into the 1970s. In places like Flat River, if your skin was black make certain it was not being shown after sundown, at least not in the town of Flat River. One day I was a visiting Jew in a school in Doniphan, I can guarantee they have never seen a Muslim. So, I was not surprised to read about a man in southern Missouri who shot to death eight people and then rid the world of his body. Guns are to southern folk in Missouri what money is to the rest of us. They so love the gun.

Of course, there are more murders in St. Louis, Missouri with its population of about 250,000 than in most major metropolitan areas of this nation. I have no idea why this man killed eight people. I also have an idea that such murders will occur again and again in this state which prefers living in the nineteenth century when blacks knew their place and Jews never ventured into these areas. They love guns, they love death as long as they can retain the right to hold a gun anywhere they desire.

Muslims Unite For Jews

There are groups in Israel and the United States which seek to portray the lives of Jews living in Europe is a fearful one. AICPAC and other members of the Jewish Lobby in America are producing films which claim that to be a Jew in a European country is to be in a similar situation that confronted Jews during the 1930s who were living in Germany, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urges European Jews to come to Israel and be safe. Of course, on the other hand, he frightens Israel Jews with dire stories of mass attacks from Iran that would destroy their country. A bit confusing. On one hand, Jews confront death in Europe and Jews confront death in Israel so come to Israel!

In the city of Oslo in Norway, about ONE THOUSAND MUSLIMS came together to take a stand against anti-semitism in their land. They wanted to make clear to the 1,000 Norwegian Jews that Muslims were their friends. They gathered around a synagogue making clear their views: “Humanity is Me, and We are hear to-we demonstrate that!” Muslims for Jews. I wonder if there are Muslims for Jews in Israel??

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

In coffee shop, I am the man with a pen, but not machine.

Few know what they know.

Shout for joy today, but what about tomorrow?

Some move hands to make a point.

We always depart from today to greet tomorrow.

Few religious figures are famous in modern America.

Nurses are unsung heroes of our lives.

All too many worship at altar of hate.

Illness makes one fatigued.

To be alone with your mind is to be in the company of wisdom.

ISIS Enemy Is ISIS

Americans like those on Fox News continue describing ISIS as composed of warriors who are going to sweep across the Middle East and enjoy increasing popularity. Those who lead ISIS must be among the most incompetent terrorists on this planet. Their one and constant tactic is to murder people in the most grotesque ways. Most probably they believe fear will result in Muslims rallying to their side. Well, look at the record:

1. They burned to death a Jordanian pilot whose family is part of the most important tribe in that land. Prior to the burning, Jordanians were divided about the government policy of fighting ISIS. Today, at least 95% of Jordanians want to destroy ISIS.

2. Egypt has been on the sidelines in the campaign against ISIS. NO Egyptian planes were bombing that group. So, what does ISIS do? They decide to behead twenty Egyptians who were working in Libya. Now Egyptian planes are bombing. Egyptian dictator General Sisi made clear the new policy of his nation. “We have to work together to defeat terrorism.”

ISIS may win a few battles and kill some people. However, it has lost support in the Middle East!

Children should be encouraged to run fast.

The beginning of the end does not have an end.

Tomorrow will always be yesterday.

I am surprised seeing a person eat soup with left hand.

Obama lives in a bubble filled with Chicago voices.

A general seeks men to lead as a general.

These days shrill voices dominate America.

Some wear dark glasses indoor, why?

Some simultaneously gaze at laptop and iPad.

The military mind is only understood by those who have served in the military.

Iran And Nuclear Weapons

Senator John McCain is one tough dude and he is willing to draw his pistol at any moment in defense of the American way of life. He agrees with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that any and all discussion must be ended with Iran. Bibi and John insist no negotiations and the end result will be????

How about this end result after Iranian negotiations are ended:

1. Russian President Vladimir Putin arrives in Tehran.

2. President Putin offers to assist Iranians in securing atomic development that leads to atomic weapons.

3. President Putin and China agree to end sanctions against Iran.

4. Oh, Putin was just in Egypt where he offered to build them a nuclear plant.

The Bibi — John end result is this:

1. Israel bombs Iranian nuclear facilities.

2. Thousands of missiles wind up in Israel

3. Israel bombs Moscow to show the Russians no one messes with Israel!

John and Bibi have NO logical plan other than the end of the world!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if one can gaze too far?

Ministers and rabbis work hard to come across as knowing something about the world.

In modern America there is no last word.

we usually gaze at the person who sits next to us in a coffee shop.

Always remember there is a tomorrow, if not, you are dead.

Mah Jong is a game I know exists, that is all I know about it.

I so miss running against the wind.

Some enjoy the gift of ignorance.

Silence should be the norm during political campaigns.
