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.”

China Ubber Alles!

The government of China is engaged in an interesting adventure into deciding what exactly are the borders of this nation. It has sent dozens of ships into the South China Sea in order to begin the process of transforming a reef or some sand into an island, and then claiming the new piece of land belongs to China. It goes further than only claiming ownership of an “island.” Once the “island” appears in the sea, then China decides who can fly over the island. According to the Chinese government: “It is a long standing task for China to safeguard its maritime rights and interests.

OK, so why can’t China:

Build an island off the coast of California and claim it belongs to China. No plane flights from San Francisco without approval.

Build an island off the coast of Italy and take control of the entire Middle East.

China forever and far ever is the new slogan!

Erdogan: Who Are You??

Turkish President Recep Erdogan is very angry. He has increasingly gained more and more power in the Turkish government and has reached the point where any, and I mean, any, criticism of what he does is an act of terrorism against his rule. He did begin years ago as a reformer seeking to end power of the Turkish military to overthrow governments, and he successfully has gained control of those men. But, something happened along the road toward creating a Turkish democracy. Power, Power, is now the only issue in his mind. An editorial in The New York Times which was critical of his policies toward journalists has sent Erdogan on a furious denial campaign. The Times said: “Mr. Erdogan appears increasingly hostile to truth telling.” Gee, those are fighting words. Erdogan responded: “Who are you? Can you write such a thing against the United States administration?”

The answer is: YES. At this moment in time the nation of Turkey is holding dozens of journalists in jail for writing what the New York Times writes every day. In a democracy, the government does not decide what is “truth telling.

Rand Paul Dilemma

There are moments when Senator Rand Paul comes across as a fighter for the rights of Americans. He has consistently opposed the rise of government authority to engage in surveillance of what Americans write or read. Every administration during the past twenty years has engaged in investigating possible “terrorist” actions by just reading what those of us who are not terrorist write in the normal process of living. The great American myth is that checking the private lives of Americans is a necessary step in the great crusade against terrorism. So, Senator Rand Paul is fighting this seemingly endless disruption of human rights in America.

However, this fighter for human rights is completely oblivious to the human rights of poor people, of those without health insurance. He has narrowed the definition of “human rights” to a single aspect of the role of government-what we read and write. Has he ever considered the right of people to eat? Has he ever considered the right of people to have access to health insurance? He cares about the right to be free from government interference in our private lives. But, he still only regards the rights of wealthy folk to keep their money as THE most important right in America!

Sheldon, Sheldon, What Would Mommy Say?

There is a nice Jewish boy who happens to possess a few billion dollars and he uses this money to fight the bad people in America and in the Middle East. His name is Sheldon Adelson and he gave $150,000,000 of his money to help defeat the terrorist friend who now resides in the White House. He has promised a few hundred million dollars of his money to any Republican who will help him fight the bad people in the world. Sheldon is now accused of having ties to crime lords in the Chinese enclave of Macau. Steve Jacobs, who worked in the casinos claims that Sheldon refused to terminate his relations with the notorious Chinese Triad that runs crime in the enclave. Sheldon, Sheldon, what would your Jewish mommy say about her nice little boy having connections with crime people?

Oh, and Sheldon is the leading supporter of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Sheldon works to end any opportunity to create an independent state of Palestine because he considers any and all Palestinians as criminals! Let me get this straight, Sheldon opposes criminals in the Middle East but is now charged with working with criminals in Asia. We truly hope these charges are incorrect because Sheldon is a nice Jewish boy and nice Jewish boys only play with nice little boys!

Benghazi Forever

It is Saturday and Republicans want to make clear to the American people that the major issue confronting this nation is BENGHAZI. As you recall, FOUR Americans died because terrorists invaded the US Embassy int hat town which is located in the nation of Libya. For some reason, the Secretary of State failed to do her job and station herself, along with her weapon, inside the Embassy to blast away at a terrorist group which was entering the facilities. It is clear the primary responsibility of a Secretary of State is to wander from Embassy location to Embassy location in order to ensure there is tight security.

On October 23, 1983, terrorists blew up a Marine barracks in the city or Beirut in Lebanon and the end result was the death of TWO HUNDRED FORTY ONE Americans. Not a single member of the Democratic Party in Congress blamed President Reagan for that disaster. The event happened on a Sunday morning. I want to know why Ronald Reagan was not at his post with his machine gun blasting away at those terrorists!

Believe it or not, men die all over the world, and no President is ever held responsible for those deaths. BUT, Hillary Clinton is held responsible for the deaths of four people. Isn’t it time for Republicans to give this story a rest? I doubt if a single Republican could even place the location of Benghazi on a map!

Vaudeville Show Coming To Your Screen

Fox News has announced some wonderful news, and some sad news about the forthcoming election for president of the United States of America. The good news is that Americans will be able–without paying a single penny– to see the most humorous event in modern media–the stage filled with aspiring candidates for the Republican nomination for that office. Here is the bad news, instead of the possible eighteen candidates, we will only be able to observe, about ten of them. The good news is that we can witness the quick minds of outstanding men such as Ted Cruz. I regret to inform you that not a single female candidate has made the Fox News cut.

1. I will be very sad at not being able to see and hear the great mind of Rick Santorum. I so enjoyed wondering which of his sweaters would appear on the screen.

2. I so desire to see Bobby Jindal, this is one candidate who will say anything in order to please billionaires.

3. My life will not be the same now that Sarah Palin no longer is in it. This is one female who can gaze into the future as well as gaze over a thousand miles with one glance.

4. So far, there is no mention of Rick Perry. I so miss his inability to explain who is in a Cabinet in our government. But, at least, he does know there is a Cabinet.

5. There is also a female whose name escapes me for the moment, I believe she was fired from her corporate job which definitely makes her a wonderful candidate for president.

None of the above will be on the stage of this show. I wonder why Sheldon Adelson will not be on the stage. After all, he has the dough,and these guys want it. I would love to see him make candidates do some tricks such as licking his penis.
