I’m Running For President

Well, another person has entered the field of candidates who are seeking the presidency of the United States of America. We know that it is not Herman Cain and it is not Mitt Romney. It is our old friend, Hillary Clinton. For someone who was born in 1992 over twenty years of life have been spent with either Bill or Hillary in some important aspect of their life. It must seem to those in that category that Clintons are always with us and their trials and tribulations are an important aspect of our lives. Then again, if one counts Bush I, the Bush or Clintons have been around for over thirty years. Now that she announced her decision, the experts are dissecting every aspect of her personality.

1. She is not “warm” enough.

2. She does not come across as “genuine.”

3. She carries too much baggage.

4. She lacks a good sense of humor.

5. She was married to Bill and his sexual escapades.

6. She has yet to articulate a program.

7. She comes across as “too smart.” This is a crime in American politics.

8. And, always, and forever–BENGHAZI!

WE Did It, You Didn’t

Among the historical topics that are not taught very well in either the United States or Russia is what happened during World War II. Most Americans believe “we won World War II,” all by ourselves. In Moscow the Melendov Museum of Photography decided to offer an exhibit of photos about World War II. It was entitled: “The Allies During World War II.” This meant the exhibit was focusing upon efforts by England and the US during the war. Many Russian leaders are furious because they believe “western news outlets today are trying to impose that the war was won without us(Russia).” Unfortunately, this comment is correct. Few if any American students are taught that throughout World War II at least 70% of German soldiers were facing Russian troops and that Russia lost over twenty million people while the total of American deaths in Europe was under 300,000. I do understand the Russian concern about distortion of history within American schools.

Russia bore the brunt of the war. But, England was all alone against Nazi German for two years, a period when Russia was supplying the Nazis with goods and services. The war required the cooperation of three major nations. It is true that Russia suffered the most and Russian troops did the major fighting, but there were a few million German soldiers fighting the Americans and British.

Oh, for the record, a majority of soldiers who landed on D-Day were NOT American. We constituted 40% of those who landed. However, after sixty days the majority were American. Such is history.

Shooting The Innocent Continues In America!

There is a hard core of Americans who insist that police are the endangered species within our nation. This hard core simply ignores the evidence of daily life and death because if a cop shoots a black person it MUST be a justified act of God. In Tulsa, they employ 73 year old reserve police officers for some reason. Some Tulsa cops halted Eric Harris for some reason or another. NO, he was not a criminal engaged in stealing or threatening any innocent person. He was black, he had to be halted before committing some act of breaking the law. The video shows him on the ground and then 73 year old reserve officer Bob Bates blasts away. “I shot him, I’m sorry.” Apparently he was reaching for his stun gun and got the wrong gun.

Mr. Harris is heard saying, “he shot me, oh my God, I’m losing my breath.” Another officer is heard saying, “fuck your breath.” Just another encounter in modern America between a black skinned citizen and our guardians of the law. Why does it require several police to subdue an man is beyond comprehension. Don’t they train police in techniques of subduing people without resort to arms? Heck, in the US Army we were trained in hand to hand combat! Mr. Bates told the media: “It was me. my attorney had advised me not to comments as much as I would.”

Just another day in America. Just another dead black person. Just another police officer who shot when he should not have shot.

Orthodox Jews Join Orthodox Muslims!

Among the most amazing developments of the twenty first century has been the growth of orthodoxy within Judaism and the Islamic religion. Both faiths increasingly have returned to the idea of thousands of years ago and both insist that God commands them to do this or that. Both insist that women are not the equal of males and both insist there is need for certain clothing arrangements in our daily lives. Orthodox political groups now dominate Israel politics, which enables them to take over land on the West Bank because “God” wants Jews to spread out over the entire area that used to be known as Palestine. Only rabbis can marry people in Israel, and Jews are not supposed to fall in love with Muslims. Orthodoxy means that religion is a factor in making decisions within Israel or within Muslim lands.

Ironically, Israel was founded by secular Jews who believed that religion should not control the lives of ordinary people. Something has happened to modern humans since so many insist that religion is the dominating issue of their lives. Of course, this attitude is not that of modern young Americans except for so many modern Jewish youth and the crazies who are known as the Tea Party. With God on their side followers can now understand how to live, how to hate, and how to ignore the reality of life. Orthodoxy always means follow the narrow path of thinking.

Compassion for the poor in our Congress

Rand Paul Is Thin Skinned

There are many nice things one can say about Rand Paul, at least he is not a Republican who devotes his time ranting and raving about lazy poor people who are stealing the money of those who are job creators. he makes common sense remarks about our drug laws, and expresses concern about the large number of black and Hispanic men who are in jail for minor crimes such as having pot in their possession. Senator Rand Paul was recently being interviewed by the British newspaper, Guardian, when once again he lost his cool. The interviewer asked about a remark he made which stated than a disproportionate number of blacks were in jail for minor crimes. The interviewer wondered if that comment would play out among Republican Christians.

Rand responded: “Actually I think I can take that message into a white evangelical church anywhere in Iowa and be received well.” The reporter noted that polls indicated that two thirds of Republicans do not agree with his view. At that moment, the interview ended and Rand Paul walked away. Sorry, Rand, this is politics, better learn how to smile when challenged by the media.

Posse Gets Its Man!

I don’t know if this story is good or bad news, but at least it shows that our police are an equal opportunity employer when it comes to beating up on people. A man named Mr. Pusok was being arrested when he fled from his home, and while being pursued somehow halted the car and stole a horse and took off with the posse behind him. Eventually, the posse of cops caught up with him and got him on the ground. We have video which displays how cops eat the hell out of the captured dude. Former LA police captain, Greg Meyer who watched the video has commented: “His hands are behind his back. He obviously surrendered, he followed commands to keep his hands behind his back, then it would be time for the deputies to handcuff him.” Sounds sort of logical.

However, since this man stole a horse, he was now a horse thief. According to laws of the West, any horse thief can be strung up on the nearest tree. This nice posse did NOT hang the bad guy so they should be complimented for a good work. All they did was beat up a guy who threatened their lives while on the ground with hands behind his back. This is America in the year, 2015 when our cops are always threatened whether it be a 12 year old kid playing with a toy gun or a big fat black dude who is selling cigarettes.

Oh, one deputy was injured when a horse kicked him.

Obama Meets Bad Guy!

Once again, Barack Obama is doing something very bad. First, he worked with Iran in order to help them get an atomic bomb, and now this weekend he will be talking with Cuban leader, Raul Castro at the summit meeting of western hemisphere leaders that is being held in Panama. Imagine, an American president who sits down and talks with bad people who murder their own people!!

1. Republican President Richard Nixon opened diplomatic relations with Communist China whose leader, Mao Tse-tung had murdered at least TWENTY MILLION Chinese as well as klling 20,000 US soldiers during theKorean war.

2. St. Ronald Reagan met with leaders of the Soviet Union and worked out agreements.

3. Today, the US has diplomatic relations with Saudi Arabia, a nation which lacks religious freedom and yearly chops off the head of a few dozen people.

4. Actually, during the 1980s,St.Ronald worked with Saddam Hussein when he murdered thousands with gas attacks.

5. The US has had diplomatic relations with Sri Lanka in which a few hundred thousand Tamils were murdered during a civil war.

6.Then again, we had diplomatic relations with President Assad of Syria.

Name any evil leader in this world and we have worked with that person.

So, Barack, go ahead and talk, it is better than going ahead with war and violence.

Oh, it is legal in Communist Cuba to practice the Catholic religion although not legal in our ally, Saudi Arabia.

Bill Maher Rants

Bill Maher is one of my favorite comics but he has a serious problem with those who are in the Muslim religion. Once aging, last night we heard him preach that the Muslim religion is filled with those who hate women, enjoy torture and murder and it is a backward group of people. He is convinced that if one is a Muslim then one believes that murder of those who oppose your religion is a sacred duty. He cites examples from ISIS or Boko Haram and thus concludes there is something peculiar about this religion. Let’s look at the record:

1. In the twentieth century,Christians have sort of led the way in death and brutality. How about the Holocaust in which six million Jews were brutality murdered by CHRISTIAN GERMANY!

2. How about the Pol Pot in Cambodia who slaughtered one million of their fellow Cambodians in a horrific manner?

3. Or, we could cite the Rwanda massacre in which 700,000 were hacked to death by Christians.

4. Then again, I believe suicide bombers in World War II murdered thousands of Americans.

5. Or the suicide bombers in Sri Lanka who sort of began the idea of blowing oneself up.

6. Fascist Catholic Italy murdered untold hundreds of thousands in this century.

7. Gas attacks were started by Christian nations.

8. Air raids which killed hundreds of thousands were begun by Christians.

Sorry Bill, Muslims are just like all religions and contain a lot of bad people!

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

There are those who will compromise and those who will not.

Jaw,jaw, never war, war.

Some speak out of both sides of mouth, some never speak.

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?

There was the Holocaust and there were plans to raise taxes, which was worse?

Is there one thing Barack Obama has done that pleases Fox News?

I do not know what fate awaits me.
