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

Some rub eyes with palm of hand.

I experience guilt being alone in a booth.

In the end we do not know where we are going.

There is a time and place for a time and place.

I record what others do not.

Mama at supper always said, “so enjoy.”

Some are so happy with a full mouth of food.

Our lives are complicated by self inflicted goals.

At age 84 I am not in a hurry about anything.

Some walk with hands stiffly by side.

I Do Understand Murder

There is one certainty in the human experience- today, somewhere and some place in the world someone was killed by someone else on the ground they were not part of the right religion. Those who live in Western nations are the descendants of people who waged religious wars for over two hundred years and in the twentieth century witnessed the murder of six million people who were Jews. Oh, they were murdered by people who regarded themselves as Christians. Oh, the Pope never took any action against such murders. No Catholic who murdered was ever thrown out of the Catholic Church. So, who can be surprised that today it is the turn of Muslims to murder those whose religion does not fit into their religion?

In a town in the south of Pakistan, some men were gathered in a mosque when bombs exploded. Their crime was to be Shia Muslims rather than to be Sunni Muslims. At least forty are dead and dozens are wounded. This is simply another story in the madness that is religion. I assume if there is a God up there, HE has left for another planet.

Putin Bans Americans!

I have the sad duty to report that many Americans will no longer be able to travel to Russia and enjoy the sights and sounds of Moscow. The Russian government is very upset at the Obama administration for its vicious attacks on Russians who have been carrying out the orders of their great and wise Leader. Several years ago Sergei Magnitsky was murdered in Moscow while engaged in uncovering fraud in the Russian government. He allegedly has a heart attack while in prison for the crime of exposing graft and corruption in the government of Vladimir Putin. The American Congress passed the Magnitsky law which prevents those Russians who were part of the murder to enter the United States of America. In Putin Land, one does not challenge any action of the Great Leader without suffering some consequences.

The Russian Foreign Ministry is upset. “The latest extension of the US list of sanctioned people, put together on the basis of he anti-Russian Magnitsky law will not go unchallenged. And on the reciprocal basis the same number of US citizens have been prohibited from entering the territory of Russia.” Sorry, if you on the list, remain home and avoid Moscow. Such are the consequences of voting for Barack Obama!

Kissinger Remains Republican Hero

There are moments when I am amazed how some people remain in the news even though a few decades have passed since they once were icons of fame. Henry Kissinger has been part of the American scene since as a twenty one year old soldier he wound up during World War II running an entire German city since as a refugee from Nazi Germany, the interrogator possessed the right language skills. One might mention that Kissinger the interrogator did NOT resort to torture in order to obtain needed information. The boy got a Ph.D. and eventually became an “expert” on foreign policy. He served under Richard Nixon as Secretary of State and gained fame for establishing diplomatic relations with Communist China. There is something ironic in the fact that REPUBLICANS reached out to Communist China, a nation that was number one in the world in torture and abuse of its people. Naturally, modern Republicans go crazy when Obama establishes diplomatic relations with Cuba.

Henry, once again was testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee when some people stood up with signs denouncing the Republican hero: “Arrest Henry Kissinger For War Crimes.” They referred to his role aiding the dictatorship of Chile which tortured and murdered thousands of their own people. This was just too much for Senator John McCain. He referred to the protestors as “low life scum.” And went on to describe their behavior as “disgraceful, and outrageous and despicable.”

The fact remans that Kissinger DID support a vicious dictator. I believe his actions were despicable.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

In older days I wore a white tee shirt under my shirt.

I dislike looking up to tall men because they are looking down on me.

Sometimes, to glance backward is to glance ahead.

One must accept with grace there are things that will NOT occur during one’s life time.

Some present a determined look approaching eating a bagel.

Ultimate triumph is to be true to self.

Some place hand in back pocket exiting an eating place.

One must never ration praise.

Some touch nose when sitting down.

I so enjoy stretching out my legs when seated.

Chalk One Up For FBI

I am pleased to report to the American people they can sleep comfortably tonight in their beds since the FBI has crushed a notorious gang of Russian spies in New York City. Federal agents were monitoring the dynamic trio of Russian spies for over two years. These evil men were engaged in the task of recruiting female college students who somehow would lead them to secrets known only to college females. The Russians were seeking information about US sanctions and our efforts to develop alternative energy resources. I have a hunch these guys could have simply gone on Facebook and been a bit more successful in recruiting informants. After all, Islamic terrorists employ this method of recruitment of the gullible. But, then again, who would give up the opportunity to spend years in New York City with all expenses covered andk wander into good restaurants pursuing information that could just as easily been obtained online?

Anyway, the FBI did arrest Evgeny Buryakov, and he is safely in jail. For some reason the FBI allowed the other two spies to escape back to Russia. If I was Vladimir Putin, I would send the two of them off to Siberia, provide them with computers and demand they finally get some reliable information!

Ted Cruz, Our Modern McCarthy

The other day I watched a clip of Senator Ted Cruz from the great state of Texas making one of his now famous rants and raves about the evils of Obama and the need to close our border in order to prevent illegals from destroying our nation. I was particularly struck how this Harvard educated man employed expressions such as “gosh darn” and pretended to be one of the boys who wander around in jeans and high boots pretending to be homespun cowboys back from the range. It is doubtful if the Ivy League graduate ever got on a horse and rod the range rounding up cattle. He does work hard at seeking to project an image of an ordinary American who got a degree from Harvard. Of course, it is rathe ironic that someone born to an American mother in the great state of Canada insists that he a “real” American unlike the black dude who was born in Africa.

In many ways he reminds me of Senator Joseph McCarthy from the 1950s who rode the horse of anti-communism in order to frighten Americans and wreck the lives of thousands of Americans. Most historians believe that Joe got into the anti-communist business in order to get re-elected and then discovered it was a path to power. Ted Cruz really does not give a damn about illegal immigrants. His words of false anger simply disguise his desire for power, regardless of how many suffer. Ted, Joe McCarthy wound up the laughing stock of America. You already have won this distinction.

Bibi Seeks To Halt Peace In Middle East

The Obama administration just ended a policy that has failed to work for nearly seventy years when it decided to establish diplomatic relations with Cuba. Naturally, to Republicans if something has not worked for seventy years why not continue for seventy more. A similar Republican and Democratic approach is the policy desired toward Iran. Before discussing this issue, let me fill in readers with the story of what happened to our policy toward Iran in 2001. As you recall, American forces swept into Afghanistan after the 9/11 horror. What Americans do NOT know is that President Khatami, then leader of Iran, offered aid to Americans and worked with our military leaders by providing Intelligence about Taliban forces. He also prevented the Taliban from entering Iran. Khatami offered the US a deal. He agreed to recognize Israel, cease aiding terrorists, accepted UN review of his nation’s atomic development and wanted in return the end of sanctions and recognition of his government. President Bush turned down the deal.

Today, President Rouhani is attempting his best to reach an agreement with Western nations. But, Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu wants to pull another Bush response to Iran. According to PM Netanyahu, “in the coming weeks, the powers are liable to tech a framework agreement with Iran, kan agreement liable to leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state.” In other words, Iran would become like that other Middle Eastern state which refuses to allow UN into their nuclear facilities–Israel! It is time to end this madness and work With the Iran government. Cease being frightened by someone like Bibi Netanyahu whose only response is always -kill and kill!

Freedom Summit Frees Bullshit To Flow

Members of the Republican Party are holding a Freedom Summit meeting. In order to spare you the tiresome responsibility of finding out what transpired at this meeting of the minds, let me quickly sum up the gathering.

1. Ted Cruz promised to halt the influx of THOSE people who reside south of the USA. Of course, he was born in Canada so it stands to reason that THOSE people who reside North of the US are welcome in our midst.

2. Rick Perry will spend the days adjusting his eye glasses which are intended to prove to the world that he is a scholar and DOES know the names of those who are in the Cabinet. Sorry, he does know the names of at least three Cabinet positions, but I doubt if he knows the names of those who lead those positions.

3. Chris Christie will promise that if elected President of the USA, that he personally will place his body on a bridge in order to screw up morning traffic. In this way, he will force cars not to move which will assist in conservation of our oil supplies.

4. Governor David Walker will promise, if elected President, that he will crush the last remaining unions in America and save our business people from the horror of paying more than $7.25 an hour.

5. Rand Paul will promise to cease discussing over flowing prison populations since fewer prisons cuts into the profits of businesses that run prisons.

6. At some point, Sarah Palin will throw her gun into the ring of candidates.

7. Oh, black Dr. Ben Carson will promise to halt doctors from doing their jobs as doctors who serve the needs of women.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Mystery of Life: Why do people adorn bodies with Tattoos?

At age 84 I increasingly stumble when walking.

There comes a point in life when all one can say is, “that’s life”

Pain in a heel ensures that one walks with difficulty.

Fear not the dawn, it just signifies another day of work.

I so miss running.

Our government increasingly resembles the gang that could not shoot straight.

For some, mother is in the face of the daughter.

Unfortunately, for some the body of mom is the body of daughter.

Some slap knee when others depart.
