NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think it is time for Herman Cain to return to the halls of battle.

I wonder if there is something that Barack Obama is not responsible for?

Barack Obama never understood the importance of a President to talk WITH the American people.

With only a single Republican female in the race, bring in some gals.

Hillary Clinton is acting the grandma role quite well these days.

Has anyone considered asking George H.W. Bush to enter the race, he only served one term!

On Goodwin’s Law

There is a law which recently has come to my attention. According to Goodwin’s Law, “as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving the Nazis or Hitler approached one.”

How about a few other laws?

1. If Rick Santorum speaks longer than five minutes, he invariably will make a nasty comment about Pope Francis and bad scientists.

2. If Jeb Bush makes a speech, he will, at some moment, refer to his brother, George, and get in hot water.

3. If Ted Cruz opens his mouth for more than two minutes the issue of what exactly did he learn at Harvard enters the picture.

4. If Sarah Palin makes any comment, at some point someone will wonder why John McCain ever selected her in 2008 will arise.

5. If Rick Perry appears wearing glasses, someone will make a comment about his “new approach.”

Stopsky’s Final Law, allow any candidate for the Republican Party to speak, and within one minute there is a reference to Barack Obama as the blame for Iraq problems.

Another Clown On Political Stage

Well, he is back on the political stage, all eye glasses and all. Once again he is charging President Obama for any and all problems in the world. If the Texas Ranger baseball team loses a game, blame it on the black dude from Africa. So, here is the latest take from Rick on the situation in the Middle East. ” No decision, no decision has down more havoc then the president’s withdrawal of American troops from Iraq. Back in January, 2009 when Barack Obama became the Commander-n-Chief, Iraq had been largely pacified. America has won the war.” It is now clear that Rick has decided to become an historian. So, Iraq was largely pacified, now that is an interesting take on what happened.

The so-called “Surge” under leadership of General Petraeus was, in reality, a joint effort by American and Sunni soldiers against al-Qaeda. But, George Bush had done a few things along the way toward destruction.

1. He disbanded the Iraq army which resulted in over 500,000 Iraq men to lose their jobs. And, he allowed them to return home with their weapons.

2. He installed Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite fanatic whose main friend was Iran as the prime minister of Iraq. It was MALIKI who disbanded Sunni Awakening Councils which led the fight against al-Qaeda.

3. So, why did Obama withdraw US troops? President Bush has arranged for an agreement with Maliki about retention of American forces. President Obama agreed to that idea, but the sticking point was refusal to Maliki to withdraw his demand that US troops in Iraq who committed a crime would be tried in a Sharia court. Just imagine what Rick Perry would say about Americans being tried in a Muslim court of justice!

It was Maliki who instituted a vicious attack on Sunnis which led to the arrival of ISIS. Oh, Rick, many of the leaders of ISIS are former Iraq officers who were fired on orders of George Bush!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if there is a stage large enough to hold all those seeking the Republican nomination?

Rick and Rick are now in the race, just guess their last names.

I wonder if Republicans could just give a test on American history to see if anyone of these clowns could pass it.

So, whatever happened to Sarah? How come she is not running? Think of book sales!

I have a hunch that Republicans would be better to wander down to Skid Row and select one of the drunks.

I so long for John McCain, at least he could complete a sentence without insulting someone.

What would happen to this country i f a clown was president?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Russia, Moscow Times: “Refuses Duel With Wolves”

Just another slander on Vladimir Putin. Show him the wolve for him to battle.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Masturbating Men”

Is this good or bad news?

UK,Guardian: “Auction Military Equipment”

Heck in Iraq, soldiers just give away their weapons for nothing to ISIS.

France, Connexion: “Goose Attacks Drone”

I am certain Republicans will blame Obama for this one.

Norway, Norway Post: “Goalie Gives Up Goal While Pissing”

Piss Off media!

Say, What About Edward Snowden?

During the past few days my mind continually returns to the saga of Edward Snowden, you know, the guy who is a “traitor” and gave important information to the “enemy.” Our government insists that whatever information that he made public was a threat to our national existence. Funny, he made the data available to the entire world and I have yet to come across any example of that data being used to kill or harm members of our armed forces. As one who once worked at an Army Headquarters it is clear that 99% of what is classified as SECRET or TOP SECRET is rarely so. People in the government just love stamping pieces of paper and it is doubtful if many of those pieces of paper have anything important on them.

Ironically, members of Congress have now pushed to make legal the ideas that Edward Snowden was urging years ago. NSA will no longer have access to our phone records and, guess what? There is no likelihood this action will ever damage the security of this nation. Then again, would NSA please give us examples of how gathering information about our phone records actually halted any attack on our nation? We are finally returning to common sense and believe it or not this is being done by our CONGRESS!

Guantanamo Forever

There are always some certainties in life and when it comes to the issue of the infamous 9/11 then Fox News and most Republicans are absolutely certain that torturing people, innocent of guilty was an absolute necessity. During World War II, when the US and its allies fought the German army and the Japanese army, they, for some strange reason, did not have to resort to torture. OK, there were incidents when members of our armed forces did torture the enemy, but such tactics were never part of the policies of our government. And, gee whiz, we defeated enemies which had combined forces of at least fifteen million men. Of course, when it comes to defeating an enemy which has, at best, about one hundred THOUSAND, the threat to our very existence is much greater.

Majid Khan was one of the two bit terrorists who was involved with Osama bin Laden and the CIA needed information so they sort of tortured the guy. He claims they poured ice water over this genitals, beat the hell out of him. A rule enforced by those who tortured during the Bush administration is that lawyers for the person being tortured were not allowed to tell anyone their client was being tortured. This was an example of how the American government got information. I hate to inform the Bush folks that interrogators during World War II obtained information without beating the hell out of anyone. Just ask Henry Kissinger who was an interrogator if he ever employed torture!

Jeb Bush Salutes Our Heroes!

I feel so reassured to know that at least one candidate of the Republican party refuses to abandon our admiration for the former government of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. Jeb Bush wants the American people to know that “what I admire most about my brother was that he kept us safe. And I believe people will respect him for a long time because of that.” He also wants Republicans to know that he disagrees with Senator Rand Paul who wants to end government surveillance of our lives. “This is a matter of national security. We shouldn’t surrender the tools that keep us safe. It would be irresponsible. It would be reckless;” Mighty strong words in defense of the Bush-other Bush, that is– policy of defense against weapons of mass destruction.

I wonder what the five thousand Americans who died in this venture into nothing that had anything to do with terrorism feel now that they are dead. I wonder if the 40,000 who were wounded feel about being “saved” by President Bush feel about that caring effort. And, I wonder what the estimated 500,000 who returned with PTSD feel about being “saved” by George Bush? I have a hunch this campaign approach is a losing one.

Coke Wars

A Muslim woman who happens to be the chaplain at Northwestern University for Muslim students took a plane ride that wound up being an adventure in American madness. Tahera Ahmand, like millions of others whip have traveled on planes asked for a Coca Cola. Obviously, the first thing any Muslim terrorist does is to seek a Coca Cola. She asked the stewardess for an unopened can of Coca Cola which sent fear running through the mind of this woman. Why would a God fearing decent American woman ask for a can that is not opened? She replied to this suspicious request with, “Well, I’m sorry. I just can’t give you an unopened can, so no Coca Cola. We are unauthorized to give unopened cans to people, because they might use it as a weapon.”

The unfortunate Ms.Ahmad soon heard words of fear from the other passengers. “Shut the fuck up you Muslim!” Let me offer some defense of the actions of this brave stewardess who saved the plane from destruction.

1. The lid on a can could be used to jimmy open the door leading to the pilots, attack them and crash the plane.

2. The lid could be used to attack other passengers who, lacking a lid since they had an open can of Coca Cola, could not defend themselves.

George Bush saved us from Weapons of Mass Destruction and this brave stewardess saved us from another weapon of mass destruction.

Such ended the Coca Cola war, and we Americans can sleep peacefully!

The Mouth That Roars Nonsense!

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once again is roaring with nonsense when it comes to the Middle East. Listen to this latest example: “As horrific as ISIS is, once Iran, the prime terrorist state of our time, acquires nuclear weapons, it will be a hundred, times more dangerous, a thousand times more dangerous anymore destructive than ISIS.” He warns that filling the coffers of Iran with “billions of dollars to pursue its aggression” will lead to endless wars. Let’s examine the record:

1. The Army of Iran has never left the borders of Iran on any aggressive venture.

2. Since 1980, the IDF has left the borders of Israel to attack other areas in the Middle East.

3. Under the administration of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld the United States has spent over a TRILLION DOLLARS in pursuit of destabilizing the Middle East and creating terrorist groups.

4. When it comes to fostering terrorism the USA is the leading nation of our time.

Yes, Bibi, the nation of Iran DOEs sponsor terrorists. But, when it comes to sponsoring the rise of terrorism, Iran is a distant fifth in the Middle East.

How about gazing in the mirror and wondering if Israel could try some new approaches to peace? Yes, Bibi, the road to peace is long and difficult, but it is the only road we have. As British Prime Minister Winston Churchill once said: “Jaw, Jaw, not war, war.”
