Limits To Free Speech For Republican Politicians

Believe it or not but once upon a time the Republican party stood for freedom of speech for Republicans. Republican political leaders in the 1960s voted for civil rights, and Republicans were in the fight to end discrimination against black Americans. That was then, today is now. Senator Rand Paul has been making strange comments during the past few years. He opposes policies of war in the Middle East, talks about denial of rights to African Americans, and even warns about excessive use of force by police. Naturally, that got him in trouble with many Republicans. Then, he committed the worse crime of all. In some talks at college campuses Senator Paul said it was necessary to persuade most Americans to support restrictions on abortion prior to introducing anti-abortion legislation. Wow!

However, the good Senator finally realized making such statements could end his political career. Listen to the revised Paul idea about abortion. “I am one who will march for life and will continue to stand up in defense of life so long as I am privileged to be in office.” Oops, sorry about those comments regarding persuading Americans to support anti-abortion!

Another Beheading-In America!

I must apologize to the Fox Network for attacking their efforts to prevent ISIS from taking over the United States of America. Fox newscasters have led the fight to save this nation from the horrors of ISIS, and terrorist attacks. Wise leaders such as Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and the entire Republican party have repeatedly warned that it is simply a matter of time before each and Vaughan Food offices, grabbed a woman and proceeded to cut off her head! Yes, right here in God fearing good old America, an American had her head cut off! The man was upset, the man felt his right to work had been denied. After beheading the woman he attacked another one. Fortunately, Mark Vaughan who owned the company was an NRA member who had a gun. He proceeded to shoot the man and end the carnage.

So, what do we learn from this episode? We learn that each and every American must be armed to the teeth. Tomorrow when you get to work, take a hard look at the worker next to you. Is he reliable? Is he a Muslim? Would he cut off your head? If the answer to these question is YES, than go to work on Monday armed to the teeth. Why not shoot this person and prevent mass murder? Just remember, there could be an ISIS member next to you on the train or bus. Kill before you are killed!

Thank God we have Sarah Palin with her weapons of mass destruction!! God, if we only had an NRA member in the White House, we would all be safe!

Eric Holder Is Gone

Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to retire. There is no question during his tenure in office, this alleged leader in advocating civil liberties has been a man whose record is rather mixed. First, Holder has fought for civil rights for African Americans and been an advocate of the concept that skin color should not result in denial of basic freedom. He opposed efforts to reduce voting by state legislation that introduces strange requirements such as voter ID. Republicans have shifted the entire history of American voting by their claims of voter fraud. At best, of the over 100 million who voted for President there were fewer than 100 cases of voter fraud. Holder has made clear this cry for “justice” is simply another Republican trick to gain electoral victories.

However, Eric Holder has gone out of his way to impose restrictions upon reporters who expose government efforts to deny access to information. More reporters have been indicted under the Holder administration than under any prior Attorney General. Obama shouts for civil rights while at the same time sending to prison reporters who report upon government restrictions on access to information. Sorry, Mr. Holder, you failed to support civil rights for the media.

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

Never allow a child to go to sleep with anger in heart.

Become the guardian of love.

If you can’t solve problem, ask for advice. Usually, it is free.

Better to pay now, than later.

Holidays have lost their meaning.

Some reach deep into purse, some into heart.

I distance self from people when in coffee shop.

For some, best companion is iPad.

These days elderly couple grow alike in body size.

Most shake heads as other talks.

There is a time and place to just shut up.

Police Taught To Be Aggressive

During the course of any year in America, at best, fewer than twenty five people are actually murdered by someone with a gun who enters a school or church or business enterprise with the thought in mind of committing a shooting. The most horrible school murder occurred in the 1920s when a deranged man blew up a school. In other words, those who enter business establishments or schools or churches rarely have murder on their minds. Police in the town of Beavercreek, a suburb of Dayton, Ohio,k were given a pep talk about the importance of shooting first when encountering a possible perpetrator of shooting. The pep talk included a slide show of how deranged murderers killed innocent children in school. It was emphasized to police that getting off the first shot is the best way to avoid a mass murder. In other words, police were told to shift their mindset to one that will shoot first, and ask questions later.

Several days later, Sean Williams, a policeman, was told there was a shooter ready to kill people in a Walmart store. He rushed to the scene and saw John Crawford holding aloft a gun. Oh, Walmart SELLS GUNS. IN other words, those seeking to purchase a gun will ordinarily touch the gun or even lift the gun. Thousands do this every day in gun stores. But, officer Williams remembered the lesson and shot to death a customer, a black man named John Crawford. How about talk first as a policy??

SKY HAS FALLEN IN AMERICA!!

For American conservatives these used to be the best of times, but, alas, these have become the worst of times. There are unconfirmed reports that most Wall Street folk are packing their bags, gathering up their riches and headed for more friendly climes because terrorists are now loose in America and seeking to take away the riches of those who toil only to benefit the American worker. We know those with wealth have only but one thought in their mind, how to accumulate money because in accomplishing this task they bring untold wealth to each and every American who works for a living. The entire edifice of American capitalism is based on the proposition that wealthy folk take from the poor and give to themselves. How else can prosperity be reached in America?

Well, there is threatening news from the city of Los Angel! Just think about it. A hotel worker will now make about $2500 a month in wages. This means they will be purchasing goods with this money. This means they might even have a few dollars to deposit in banks which could then loan their money to business enterprises! This is the first step toward COMMUNISM! This event marks the end of American CAPITALISM! Yes, the sky has fallen in Los Angeles!

Are You Still Alive??

I do not know if any other human is still alive in Europe or the United States of America since we now know the appearance of terrorist groups threatens the very existence of our societies. American planes, Saudi Arabian planes and even some from Jordan or Qatar are blasting sites in Syria and Iraq currently under control of ISIS or one of the other dozen terror groups which daily display their power on the Internet. Just to make Americans feel fearful they chop off the heads of some innocent people. It is part of their campaign of terror– only the “terror” they display is on TV, which today has become a more powerful weapon than any machine gun or bomb on a battlefield. Recent surveys reveal that at least one out of three Americans fears they will be killed by “terrorists.” As of this day, after thirteen years of fighting in the Middle East about six thousand Americans lost their lives in the fight against terrorism. However:

1. During the battle of Antietam during the Civil War, over fifteen thousand died in that single fight in three days.

2. During the Battle of the Bulge in World War II, over ten thousand died in the course of a SINGLE WEEK!

3. During the War of 1812, the British set fire to Washington D.C.

No, terror groups are not going to kill you today or tomorrow. You face greater danger from AMERICANS with guns in their hands than from any terrorist. You face greater danger from any AMERICAN sitting in a car, that weapon of mass destruction than from any terrorist!

Modern Americans are the most fearful Americans in history! BOO!

Don’t Anger Money Groups In America!

These days the most important sports news comes from statements made –or not made– by those in charge of the National Football League. Believe it or not, but in those olden times one picked up a newspaper, turned to the Sport section and encountered stories about your favorite team and what it was doing on the playing field. Bill Simmons is a sports analyst for ESPN, and like most commentators he has become disgusted by refusal of NFL leaders to address issues of violence –of the playing fields- by athletes who prefer punching out a girl friend or wife or just slamming their children. Bill blasted NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for pussy footing about the issue of domestic violence. Mr. Simmons dared to engage in profanity by terming Goodell’s comments as a “lie!” Imagine in modern America terming someone with power as uttering a “lie?”

Simmons was suspended by ESPN. Oh, ESPN makes gobs of money from the NFL and the last thing they desire is to anger those who pay them. After all, this is capitalist America and if one have money, then people had better accept whatever you state as the TRUTH! Bill Simmons has his own followers on the Internet and will continue speaking his mind. It is sad that the word, “lie” has now become a profanity in modern America!

Putin Pouts His Anger

There is one problem when ann individual creates a society in which HE is the decider. Over time, he grows unaccustomed to anyone contradicting his words of foolishness. Vladimir Putin has become the semi-dictator of Russia. He has crushed any and all opposing forces so when he speaks, there is silence from anyone who disagrees with his words of wisdom. Yes, he has succeeded in compelling the Ukraine government to accede to his demands in eastern Ukraine. He has empowered a group of local toughs to become a “government.” Of course, now they have power, but do any of these bums have the slightest idea how to govern a “nation?” Putin has accomplished this goal with use of Russian troops in Ukraine.

The Russian government is upset because a NATO officer issued a statement which describes how Russian troops imposed their power upon Ukraine. Colonel Janzen made clear that Russian troops were deployed in Ukraine while thousands of others were gathered on the border. The Russian government is angry because a “clerk” dared to make such outrageous comments! The “truth” today is an unknown word in Mother Russia!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

New McDonalds, same old people.

In every end is a new beginning.

There are wars of necessity and wars of choice.

We fight terrorists and they fight us.

To understand one’s strengths is to understand one’s weaknesses.

For many, there is the slavery of the mind.

We all too often forget the importance of love.

Once I was poor, today I am not. Never forget who I once was.

There are days when I wish that I didn’t wish.

For some, their gun is their penis in action.

Never underestimate the importance of a free mind.
