Let World Know, I’m A Jerk!

The American public becomes furious when ISIS or some other Middle Eastern conglomeration of nut cases displays their head cutting on video while men dance with glee. Where did these kooks ever get the idea of displaying their crimes on video? Obviously, this must have something to do with the Muslim religion. Let me explain the fascination with informing the world that I am number one kook in the world. Hardly a day goes by in America without a few hundred thousand videos of people performing acts of stupidity. Heck, former Congressman Anthony Weiner enjoyed showing the world his weiner. A few days ago in Christian County, Kentucky, two men along with two fifteen year old boys, sodomized a fifteen year old boy in his own home. Naturally, they had to depict their act on a video. How else could the police find them?

The Social Media has transformed normal people in voyeurs who devote their lives to showing off. So, if you are upset at the idiots in ISIS, just remember, they got the idea from we Americans and our obsession on displaying acts of stupidity!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

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

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If cops can go 90 miles an hour, why can’t I?

Dead deer in the road, I guess he was a leap too short.

In any roadside restaurant there must be a waitress named, Mabel.

I hate confronting a woman who is in charge when I have a complaint.

I await the appearance of humanoid robots, they will be programmed for politeness.

God must have been in a good mood the day he created watermelon.

As Big Al always said back in the Bronx, “yeh, you got a college degree, but you still need five cents to ride the subway!”

I so miss the songs and voice of Johnny Cash.

My theory of driving, arrive late, arrive alive.

In my Bronx childhood, rye breads were not sliced. That joy was allowed to those who purchased the rye bread.

Putin Pouts Demanding Defiance!

These are difficult days for President Vladimir Putin since the media is filled with stories about Ebola or bombings in Iraq or here in America, about illegal immigrants. No one appears to be thinking about Vladimir, nor do world leaders pay any attention to what he thinks concerning issues of the day. Imagine a week without the world focused on another of his threats and histrionics? Vladimir just had to issue another of his warnings of doom in order to shift attention to what he thinks. Putin is on his way to visit Serbia so he gave an interview to a Serbian newspaper. “We hope that our partners realize the futility of attempting to blackmail Russia,and remember what consequences between major nuclear powers could bring for strategic stability…Together with the sanctions against entire sections of our economy, this approach can be called nothing but hostile” I assume he is raising the possibility of a nuclear war. What is most amazing is that Russian political and military leaders do not rise up in anger at this wild man and his threats to bring destruction to their nation.

Putin history lesson:

1. Gangsters overthrew the government of Ukraine.
2. Thugs paid by the CIA seized control of Ukraine.
3. Putin, the man of peace intervened to protect Ukrainians.
4. OK, some airliner was shot down, but it was shot down by the CIA!

In other words, Putin is only seeking peace and justice. The man certainly has balls to utter this nonsense!

Just Following Jesus

As I recall, Jesus Christ lived about two thousand years ago, and during his lifetime he preached for peace and justice for all humanity. Since his death, thousands of men have argued they are in contact with the dead dude of peace and justice. Mark Driscoll is an evangelical minister of Mars Hill church and he preaches some mighty words about how men should be head of the household and teach their women how to behave. I find ironic that someone who believes in Jesus the man of peace heads a church with the name of MARS, the god of War. Anyway, Mark has been engaged for years in a war with the elders of his church, and finally came forth with some words of sorrow. “I readily acknowledge I am an imperfect messenger of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Specifically, I have confessed to past pride, anger and a domineering spirit.”

Elders of the church complain he is guilty not only of being a bully, but of plagiarized actions. It always amazes me that men argue they are a messenger of Jesus who was a man of peace and they so enjoy being a man of war. As far as I know, there is no evidence Jesus hired Driscoll to be his messenger.

P.S. How does one apply to be a messenger for Christ? I am currently without a job and sure could use one delivering messages from the Jesus man!

Obama Plays Lawyer Rather Than Leader!

Once again, President Barack Obama has decided to play law professor rather than assume the mantle of leader of the nation. A college professor makes clear to students that he is always right, and for any comment by a student, he is quick with a retort to prove them wrong. The White House is arguing that the 1973 War Resolution which allows Presidents a sixty day window in which to respond to violent acts does not apply to bombings in Iraq against ISIS. In theory, October 7 would mark the end of legal bombings in Iraq, and require an act of Congress to continue such action. However, lawyer Obama now cites the 2001 and 2002 Authorization Military Force resolutions passed to allow President Bush to pursue Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida as justification for bombing in Iraq.

When will Barack Obama learn how to be a leader. He should have rushed to Congress and obtained authorization for bombing in Iraq. Does he actually believe that Republicans would vote against such action? How dumb can Obama be? No Republican running for re-election would provide his opponent the opportunity to blast his failure to “protect America.” This was a golden opportunity to get Republicans as your ally in this war. Instead, he allows them to stay on the sidelines offering negative comments. He took them off the hook of responsibility.

Barack Obama needs an old time Irish politician in the White House to guide his behavior.

MADNESS OF EBOLA

The New York Daily News headline proclaimed to a picture of President Obama:

FOR GOD’S SAKE
GET A GRIP

Now, let me get this clear, if there is an illness in our nation, somehow, some way the President can cure the patient. Barack Obama has nothing to do with Ebola, he has no power, he lacks any skill to treat this disease. The Center for Disease Control is in charge. Can we Americans for once, keep politics out of an issue that has nothing to do with politics? Does the Daily News want the President to offer advice to doctors? This is madness become even more madness by the constant nonstop attacks on Obama for every ill in the world.

I hate to inform the Daily News but the Texas Health Presbyterian hospital committed the mistakes. Not the CDC. So, how about another headline directed at Texas Governor Rick Perry:

FOR GOD’SAKE
GET A GRIP

Hezbollah, The Good Guys?

I recognize any words that depict members of Hezbollah as other than savage terrorists would annoy the Israel government. Of course, the Palestinian branch of Hezbollah has agreed to serve in the Palestinian Authority government which means it can not engage in terrorist activity. The complexity about Hezbollah grows even more interesting when one discusses ISIS. In the valley of Bekaa, which lies on the border with Syria hundreds of Hezbollah are fighting ISIS which it regards as a threat to Lebanon, as well as to the Syrian government. Hezbollah soldiers told a correspondent their aim is to “degrade and destroy” ISIS. So, let me explain:

1. The Israel government considers Hezbollah a threat to Israel.

2. The Israel government wants ISIS to be destroyed.

3. Hezbollah wants ISIS destroyed.

4. Turkey, allegedly is an ally in the fight against ISIS.

5. At this moment, Turkish planes are attacking Kurds who are fighting ISIS.

Question: How did we Americans get caught in this mad world??

Court Aborts Abortion Bans

The state of Texas is more than a physical entity, it is also a state of mind. Governor Rick Perry, among the great thinkers in our society, believes the “greatest threats to America” are caused by bans on guns and women who insist on having an abortion. Texas has passed one law after another to impede the right of women to have an abortion. Thank God,the US Supreme Court placed a hold on the latest attack on women, the 2013 anti-which closed all but a few abortion clinics in Texas. The law requires doctors working in an abortion clinic to have access to a hospital. Of course, many hospitals fear being connected with abortion so they block doctors from gaining access to the hospital.

The new ruling will enable about 2o of the existing 30 odd abortion facilities to remain open. Texas has ben attempting an end run against the Roe decision which allows abortion,. The government of Texas simply blocks access to abortion facilities, as part of its plan to end abortion in the state. The most remarkable aspect of this endeavor is lack of anger on the part of women to have their rights taken away. Vote against Republicans to vote for women rights!

Republicans Want ISIS Strategy

Fox News and Republicans are up in arms because there are not enough arms up in action in Iraq. They blame Barack Obama for the rise of ISIS and want to know why this group of terrorists have yet to be defeated. Let’s examine the record:

1. In 2006, when George Bush was president, his administration backed Nouri al Maliki to become head of the Iraqi government.

2. Since he assumed office this crooked, corrupt man has driven out from any place of responsibility Sunni men as well as sending thousands to jail. Maliki believes Shiites must dominate all aspects of Iraqi society, and the result is that thousands of Sunnis welcomed the arrival of ISIS.

3. ISIS consists of about 25,000 soldiers. The Iraqi army, allegedly has 250,000 soldiers. Do the math.

4. President Obama offered to retain US military advisers in Iraq but Prime Minister Maliki insisted that Americans would be subject sharia law if accused of a crime. Imagine what Fox News and Republicans would have shouted if President Obama had agreed to that demand.

Turkey is our “ally.” As Turkish troops stand idle, ISIS is blasting away at the Kurdish city of Kobani. Oh, the Turkish military is doing something–it is attacking Kurds. So, let me get this straight: Kurds are fighting ISIS and Turkey is fighting soldiers who are fighting ISIS. Sorry, the blame for problems in the Middle East rests on heads of Muslims in the region.

Return Of Poll Tax

I have ben voting for seventy years, and at no time during this time period did anyone ask me to produce a government issued photo ID. During the past presidential election over 100 million Americans voted, and fewer than 100 cases of voter fraud were ever uncovered. The most important words that any member of the Republican party can utter are: “this is the greatest threat in American history to our national security.” Of course, requiring voter ID has nothing to do with honest elections. It is simply a modern version of the Poll Tax. During segregation, any black who dared to seek to vote was required to pay money for that privilege. Let’s examine the issue:

1. A high percent of elderly people have ceased using automobiles. So, where do they get a government issued ID?

2. Millions of poor people do not own a car, so where do they get a government issued ID?

This supposed “greatest threat” can be solved by having each state government issue an ID to people. Naturally, Republicans will then chant, “this is the greatest threat to freedom in America.” I wonder if there is a Republican think tank that sits up nights identifying “greatest threats to America?”
