HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Anti-Theft Xmas Trees”

So, Santa, keep your hands to yourself!

Italy, Local: “In Italy, God Plans To Look Away”

Is that good or bad news for the Vatican?

Norway, Norway Post: “Effort To Promote Human Rights”

This is one story that has nothing to do with Kim Jong-un!

USA, aol: “What You Need To Know About About Gun Club?”

Oh well, it is just a matter of time before you WILL know about the gun club.

UK, Guardian: “Stay In Style”

There will be no changes in the style of Republican congressmen next year.

Goodbye Stephen Colbert

It has been for years part of my nightly behavior to tune into the Colbert show in order to enjoy the antics of our good friend who pretends to be a conservative defending the American way of life. But, as the expression goes, all good things must come to an end. During the course of my 84 years I have been part of the last show of many series such as MASH or Seinfeld Or All In The Family. I have always looked forward with anticipation to the last episode. I must confess that not a single last episode remains in my mind. They all conclude with a flat joke or nostalgia. Such was the last Colbert Report. Sort of warm and fuzzy with singing from God knows how many people. Can’t say that I was disappointed, just sad that a good show is now over.

Stephen, we will miss your antics. Have a good time on the new show.

The Interview That Never Took Place

Sony Pictures was just about to release a film that few Americans were ever going to see. The now infamous, The Interview” was all about a sick joke that deals with the assassination of Kim Jong-un, Beloved leader of North Korea. As you now know, hackers penetrated the defenses of Sony Pictures and revealed “secrets” about what this or that person said to this or that person. For example,We now know that George Clooney was terribly disappointed by his performance in “Monuments Men.” We also know about conversations that took place among important people of Sony. Frankly, I doubt if anyone would bother to read this trivia or cares to devote a single minute of their life to learning about these important conversations.

George Clooney is upset, but not about revealing what he said. “Do whatever you can to get this movie out. Not because everybody has to see the movie, but because I am not going to be told we can’t see the movie . That’s the most important part. We can’t be told we can’t see something by Kim Jong-un, of all fucking people.” What most confuses me is why hasn’t our technology people penetrated the North Korean computers so we could learn what Kim Jong-un says to his lackies.

Oh, Kim Jong-un just got an invite from Vladimir Putin to visit Moscow. Now, I would love to learn what those two men say to one another!

The Man With Balls

It has taken at least six years but there are signs that Barack Obama has finally decided that being President of the United States requires standing up got ideas rather than being the man who seeks to avoid controversy. Yes, he did fight for the idea of national health insurance, but the Obama of 21014 might have fought for a law that was progressive. Perhaps, the Obama of 2014 in 2009 would simply have expanded Medicare to include all Americans rather than creating a complex law that took thousands of pages to describe how all Americans might be covered for their medical expenses. Today, he has ended the foolish ban on relations with Cuba even though his action has unleashed the forces of stupidity. For example:

1. Marco Rubio insists that having relations with Cuba makes the Castro boys even more powerful. I have yet to hear Marco insisting that we end relations with Communist China.

2. Fox News insists the Castro boys will make life terrible for the people of Cuba. I guess that is why thousands are marching in Havana in joy.

Barack, stand up for what is right, and explain it to Americans. That is what great American presidents Do!

Marco Rubio Is Upset About Cuba

Senator Marco Rubio is very upset because that man in the White House has decided to open diplomatic relations with Cuba. You know, the land from which Marco’s parents fled in order to flee from tyranny. He terms the President as being the “world’s worst negotiator” which leaves me a bit confused. Either Marco does not want any negotiation with the Castro brothers or he wants a different outcome from the negotiation. For years Marco has been against any form of negotiation. However, if Marco was the President he would have gotten much more from the Castro gang.

1. Fidel would have been compelled to apologize to all Cubans now living in Florida for being a bad man.

2. Fidel would agree to raise wages of all Cuban workers.

3. Fidel would have promised to disband the Cuban armed forces.

4. Fidel would have agreed to give each and every Cuban immigrant to the US a sum of $100,000.

5. Fidel would have promised to welcome Capitalism to Cuba.

As I recall when then President Richard Nixon opened relations with Communist China all he did was agree to exchange Ambassadors. Marco, we have attempted for over half a century to end the Castro regime and it is still there. Enough is enough.

Donald Trump On Whatever

Frankly, there has been an amazing silence from the red headed man who simply knows everything about everyone and when he speaks, those around must stand at attention and listen to his words of wisdom. As I recall, Donald Trump was a fervent supporter of a man named, George Bush. Donald was quick to appear on Fox News in order to support his leader against unfair attacks by those LIBERALS AND SOCIALISTS who inhabit the Democratic Party. Silence is not the ordinary stance of a man who regards himself as God’s gift to humanity. Jeb Bush of the Bush family has decided to investigate the possibility that we Americans might just desire his Bush like knowledge as our next President. Obviously, this did not sit well with Donald since Jeb forgot to check with him.

“The last thing we need is another Bush. Obama has been a terrible President, but Bush likewise was a terrible President. We have two beauties there so I am not a fan of the Bush group.” However, I am certain he is a fan of the Trump group. I hate to tell Donald but not a single important Republican is worried about being fired by Donald. He might just go and build another casino that he can close.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

China, China Daily: “Dead On The Internet”

Sounds like a good place to die.

USA, aol: “Torturers Heroes To Cheney”

At least it shows that Cheney is loyal to his comrades.

Russia, Moscow Times: “”A New Start”

In Putin Russia that means invading a new country.

Sweden, Local: “Snow Shortages Moves Ski Races”

Have you guys considered Siberia, they could use some money.

France, Connexion: “Train Conductors Start Strike”

At least the engineers are working.

End Of Democracy In Turkey

About ten years ago in Turkey the Justice and Development Party won a free election and assumed power in the nation. It was led by Recep Erdogan who became the prime minister and promised a new style form of Muslim leadership. His party pushed for creation of a modern economy, and hopefully would be able to enter the European Union which would further stimulate the economy. Erdogan also promised to end efforts by Turkey’s generals and admirals who continually over threw governments they did not like. Erdogan was successful and ended rule by the Armed forces. He was successful in creating a modern economy in a Muslim society. He pushed for the end of laws that restricted the rights of Muslims in schools where females were forbidden to wear the chador in college classes. But, something happened to Erdogan along the path of modernity. He increasingly became obsessed with the wonder of POWER. His administration has put in jail more journalists than any other nation in the world. He has step by step begun the process of ending democracy within his nation.

Erdogan has become convinced that former ally, Fetullah Gulen, an imam who now resides in the United States of America and has fought for democracy in Turkey, is part of a plot to take over power in Turkey. When Turkish police uncovered evidence of corruption on the part of Erdogan and his associates, the then Prime Minister initiated prosecution of district attorneys and judges who supported police action. The editors of Zaman, among the largest circulation newspapers in Turkey are now in jail. They are charged with being agents of Gulen who seek to overthrow the government. Those who WERE CORRUPT are now free and those who initiated the corruption charges are now in prison. Bye, bye democracy in Turkey.

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

To hate makes one a hater.

There are times to close the door on life.

There is the richness that comes from money and that comes from love.

Some believe they are God while praying to God.

Some rub brow, some rub neck when tired.

Some eat with fury.

Some seek life, some Death.

Takes a crisis to make one know who one really is.

Only pick a fight with someone you can beat up.

Some walk with confidence.

Horror In Pakistan!

I confess my ignorance about human life on this planet. Every so often an event will occur which simply makes no sense. Yesterday in Pakistan some Taliban suicide bombers entered a school and proceeded to murder 126 children and adults as well as wound over a hundred. They even burned a teacher to death while his students watched. They were eventually killed by Pakistan soldiers. The event occurred at the Peshawar Army School. I assume the murders were of children whose fathers served in the armed forces. The Taliban already is hailing these killings as an example of what they consider to be serving the cause of the Muslim religion. Please don’t get me wrong, Muslims murder and boast of being religious just as Germans killed 30,000,000 and boasted they were serving God. Over in Asia the Japanese murdered millions and also made clear they were children of God.

I do not understand:

1. How young Muslims can go on a jihad knowing they will be serving in a process that results in the deaths of Muslims.

2. Young Muslims who are attracted to death of Muslims, no, I mean the MURDER OF MUSLIMS.

3. Why at this very moment teenagers are sharing emails about how wonderful it will be to go on a jihad.

I do not understand these people anymore than I will ever completely understand the minds of Nazi murderers who could bash in the head of a baby.

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND!
