With God On Our Side

With God’s blessing, Rand Paul is running for president, Ted Cruz insists that he is merely dong what the Lord told him by seeking to become the next president, Jeb became a Catholic in order to do what God wants, Rick Perry can not make a statement without invoking the Lord. Sarah Palin talks with God every day and Marco Rubio thanks God for getting his family our of Cuba. Here are some other examples of how
God has blessed the American people.

With God on their side, Europeans wiped out the Indians with guns and germs.

With God on both sides, 600,000 died in the Civil War.

Naturally, God was on the side of those who kept slaves.

With God on our side we went to Asia in order to uplift some folk.

With God on both sides World War I led to the death of millions.

We had God on our side as we defeated Nazi Germany and then we asked God to get on their side to beat the Russians.

Where does God get the time to be on our side?

Oh, I forgot, God is on the side of Muslim fanatics!

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

Why is it OK to hack other nations but it is not OK for them to hack us?

Rand Paul is not a chip off the block of his dad.

Some day someone will explain the fighting in Yemen so I can understand it.

Long time since I head from Rick Santorum.

Whatever happened to Herman Cain?

Then again, when does Rick Perry speak out about something?

We live in strange times with strange people.

Rand Paul Enters The Fight

The silly season has arrived as on after another people who are Republicans decides it is time to enter their name in the race to end the Clinton dynasty. Rand Paul has thrown his hat into the ring and uttered words of wisdom to the American people. Rand Paul is for tax cuts, then again, who is not for them. He wants to limit the number of terms one can serve in Congress–an interesting new idea. He wants to end the “warrentless surveillance of the NSA.” Ok, we agree. He wants to repeal any law that disproportionately incarcerates people of color. I am not certain is that applies only to people of black color or does it apply to those of white color. He wants the American people to know that “the enemy is radical Islam and not only will I name the enemy, I will do whatever it takes to defend America from their hate.” I think that is what our government presently is doing.

At no point does Rand Paul address a few problems

1. Student debt problem.

2. Our crumbling infrastructure problem.

3. The economic inequality problem.

4. The problem of not enough high paying jobs.

Oh well, just listen in during the silly season and note if anyone speaks about these problems

Oh Yemen, You Must Suffer

The situation in Yemen has gone from sad to ridiculous. There are so many conflicting groups shooting at one another it is simply impossible to know who is on which side of this madness.

1. The Houthi originally were opposed to their enemy, al-Qaeda. Today, the Shiite Houthi work with this group.

2. Former President Saleh once worked closely with the CIA. Today, he is working with al-Qaeda.

3. Former President Hadi is now against the former president and Houthi while years ago he worked with them.

4. Al Qaeda which was fighting the Houthi and Shiite Iran is now working with these groups.

5. Saudi Arabia which was on the sidelines is now leading the fight against the Houthi.

6. The Americans used to support Saleh and Hadi but now are unclear who to support.

The only thing that is clear is that thousands of innocent people are dead and thousands more will die.

The entire issue is a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

Oh, I forgot, blame this on Obama

Russia Hacks White House

President Obama and the American government are upset because Russia hacked the White House. For some reason, he believes that other nations have no right to hack into any American facility. This is an interesting approach given that America hacks into each and every nation’s facilities. Heck, we even hacked the emails of German Prime Minister Angela Merkel!! Name any nation that has escaped the attention of the NSA, the CIA and God knows which other American spy agency over the past two decades? What we need in the world is:

1. A day each year in which other nations can hack into your records. Just one day.

2. Or, we could just reveal all those secrets that really are not secrets. After all, there are over one million Americans who have access to Top Secret. Heck, when I was in the US Army I was cleared for NATO Secret!

3. How about a Share the Secret Holiday?

4. It would be wonderful if the US government actually shared with the American people some of the secrets they know about each and everyone of us.

5. Why not simply inform President Putin he can access any of the following twenty secrets in exchange for seeing twenty of his secrets?

Enough withe the secret game.

Bibi, Foreign Policy Expert?

Members of the Republican party and a lot of Democratic Senators regard Israel Prime Minister as an expert on the Middle East. Here is the record:

1. In 1992, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from having an atomic bomb.

2. In 2002 Bibi insisted that America had to invade Iraq and end the menace of Saddam.

3. In 2003, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from an atomic bomb.

4. When Bibi took over leadership of Israel, its closest ally was Turkey and the IDF and Turkish army units conducted joint exercises. Today, Turkey is furious at Israel due to attacks on its ships and murder of
Turkish citizens.

5. In 2010 Bibi insisted that Iran was close to having an atomic bomb.

6. Bibi believes the solution we should follow is to bomb Iran.

7. Hezbollah in Lebanon has 30,000 missiles which will be sen toward Israel in case of war.

8. The prior three heads of Mossad insist that attacking Iran would be a mistake.

So, why is Bibi an expert??

Another Day, Another Murder

We know for certainty that night will fall, and we know for certainty that somewhere in this blessed land a man whose skin is black will be shot in the back. Policeman Michael Slager pulled over a driver for some infringement of the motor vehicle code which definitely made that man a potential killer on the loose. The incident occurred in North Carleston, South Carolina. Somehow, for some reason, Mr. Walker Scott decided to run away from the scene of his crime. Naturally, what else could Mr. Slager do since his life was threatened by an unarmed man who did something while driving his car. We have the video which clearly shows Scott running with his back to Slager and guess what?

Slager put EIGHT bullets into the back of a fleeing man who had no weapons. Mr. Scott is dead. Mr.Slager insists that he “followed all the proper procedures of the Charleston police department.” Thank God, Mayor Keith Sumney does not believe this are the procedures of his police department. “I don’t care if you are behind the shield or a civilian in the street, you have to live with that decision.” Mr. Slager will be charged with the crime of murder.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Ban Lifted On Delays”

Of course, no packages will be sent, so no delays.

Japan, Japan Times: “Shut Down Minstrel Show”

You mean, close Congress down?

France, Connexion: “Man Married Bride’s Twin”

One out of two is not a bad average.

UK, Guardian: “Stuck In Train Toilet”

A heck of a lot better than being stuck in Texas with Ted Cruz!

Russia, Moscow Times: “First President Transplant”

I assume they were placing a heart in Putin.

Report On Iran

Erich Follath was sent by the German newspaper, Der Spiegel, to Iran and here is his report.

1. He met many students who were listening to the Bob Dylan song, “The Times They Are Achanging.’

2. Young boys and girls walked the streets holding hands.

3. Many young girls were pushing their chador back so the boys could so the boys could see their hair.

4. He was told that “many mosques are empty but malls are packed with people.”

5. He was told never to stand by a cleric when seeking a taxi because they do not want clerics in their cab.

6. Students told him: “we have lost the world’s respect through our excesses.” He encountered clerics who said the same thing.

Students want their right to be a land in which peaceful use of atomic energy is allowed. They are proud of their country and want to live in peace with the world.

This report will never appear on Fox News!

Bibi Never Gives UP

It is understandable that Bibi Netanyahu is upset because the good old days when American forces fought and died in Iraq is no longer possible. Bibi is a fighter who never gives up regardless of the fact the guy he is fighting wants to end violence and work for peace. Of course, Bibi and his buddies in Congress are convinced that Iranians can not be trusted and the only land in the Middle East which can is ISRAEL. So, examine the record:

Israel launched an attack in 1956 against Egypt until told to stand down by President Eisenhower–a Republican.

Israel launched an attack in 1967 and won the Six Day War.

Israel invaded Lebanon in the 1980s

Israel has four times invaded the Gaza Strip.

And, violent Iran: IT HAS NEVER INVADED A MIDDLE EASTERN NATION.

Anyway, Yuval Steinitz, Israel minister strategic affairs said that military action is possible against Iran. “It was on the table. It is still on the table. It’s going to remain on the table.”More words of peace from Israel.
