As long as the war in Iraq continues, we shall present voices of American soldiers and discuss issues of concern to those compelled to risk their lives.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You’d Better Believe It”

Reducing taxes results in less money for government, not more!

France, Connexion: “Shocking French Video

A French President NOT making love to a woman!

USA, Washington Post: “Why Is John McCain Always on CNN?”

He is THE expert on who should lead America, after all, he identified Sarah Palin!

Sweden, Local: “Donald Duck Gets Votes”

He may quack, but he is not a quack politician!

South Africa: “Life After Oscar Pistorious”

At least we will not hear gun shots.

People Make Decisions!

As one gazes around the world, one thing is very clear, decisions by people have caused problems, not ideology. Vladimir Putin has changed policies in Russia which resulted in death and destruction in Ukraine. Chinese leaders are responsible for persecution of those seeking to create a democracy in the land. Muslim clerics created terrorist groups by preaching words of hate and violence. Identify any problem in the world and it is clear that people made choices. Recep Erdogan, now President of Turkey, turned away from working toward creation of a democratic nation. Heck, former President Gul disagreed with Erdogan choices and now Turkey is moving away from democracy. Current leaders of Egypt had many choices to create a modern Egyptian nation, but refused. Instead of focusing upon economic development and freeing forces of economic changes, Egyptian leaders decided upon policy of terror.

Here in America, people like Ted Cruz or John Boehner, chose policies of obstruction and policies that protect the wealthy in order to create the current state of gridlock. The present mess in Washington has nothing to do with ideology, it is the result of individual choices. If people behave in stupid ways, don’t blame it on ideology, it is their decision to be a nut case who lacks any sense of intelligence! Blame it on individuals, not some ideology or religion!

Bombs Away To End ISIS

The air war which is designed to end the terror of ISIS is in full swing. Fighter jets, Tomahawk missiles, drones and bombers are blasting away at targets in Iraq and Syria. The goal is simple, drop bombs, bad people get killed, and, voila, that is the end of bad guys. This has been a central strategy of America’s armed forces for over a decade, and the results of this policy are clear to see. ISIS has grown more powerful, instead of about 5,000 members of al-Qaeda, there are now over twenty thousand. We bomb, we kill, and the bad guys continue to be bad guys. During World War II, we bombed and bombed the Germans, but until three months before Germany fell to the power of Soviet armed forces and armies from England and the US, the Germans continue to fight on despite bombing.

We used bombing in Vietnam, and, in the end, American forces had to leave that nation. Bombing alone is NOT a strategy. It must be accompanied by creating a government that is supported by people, by offering the average person in Iraq guarantees of a better life if they cease supporting ISIS. For example, where are the Imams of peace preaching a different version of the teachings of Islam?

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 is always a third choice in life.

Muy elderly ears only hear fragments of words, good or bad news?

Some walk with fatigue.

Some carry unseen burdens of past.

I wonder if there is money in heaven.

Some are naturally curious.

Curiosity did not kill the cat, lack of it did.

Some remember what they should not.

Some are resentful, some are resourceful.

Some stride with hope.

Some seek Death, some Life.

End The Gridlock, Finally!

We are prepared to offer several concrete proposals that would result in ending the gridlock in Washington.

1. Vice President Biden resigns and is replaced by Ted Cruz. Ted would then have to speak with the evil one at least once a day.

2. Democrats agree to end all taxes on those earning above $1 million. The nation will then witness a flood of jobs that would end unemployment. Carry out Republican ideas and allow the American people to judge results!

3. Appoint Sarah Palin as Secretary of State and allow her to personally take care of the ISIS problem.

4. End Food Stamp programs and establish free access at garbage dumps to all Americans.

5. All major networks would present speeches by Mitt Romney at least once a day to keep Americans aware of what a Romney presidency would have looked like.

Five sensible actions to end gridlock!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

France, Connexion: “Ways To Make Life Simple”

Just elect men and women with simple minds.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You’d Better Believe It”

Cut taxes and get more money for the government.

USA,Washington Post: “Reluctant Warrior”

Two word description of Barack Obama?

Sweden, Local: “Wins Fights For Death Benefits”

Naturally, he is dead.

Australia, Sydney Morning Herald: “Don’t Act Against God”

If you do, watch out for the thunder bolts!

Moishie The Squirrel

The other day while driving my car I encountered a squirrel in the street carefully gathering nuts and such stuff for the long winter that lies ahead. I decided to halt for a while and chat with this creature of God. His name is Moishie and he is Jewish. Yes, my friends, squirrels also believe in various forms of religion. Moishie does have relatives in Israel as well as in Palestine and other Arab nations. Naturally, I asked Moishie what he thinks about we humans. He informed me that among squirrels we are known as “Big Foot” and sometimes as “The Destroyers.” According to him, humans are only good for wiping out just about everything on this planet. His cousin in Gaza told him about the bombing and destruction. Moishie wants to know why we Big Feet folk are always dropping these bombs and killing one another. The concept of killing a fellow squirrel is simply not known to those creatures who allegedly have tiny brains.

I spent an hour attempting to explain human behavior to this squirrel. He thanked me. Then he said: “My Big Foot friend, keep up your work and one day we squirrels will inherit the Earth. Just blast away until there are no more humans on Earth. So long, have a good one.”

I bid goodbye to Moishie and wondered how a human could become part of squirrel society?

Public Hatred OK

It has becomes an accepted idea in the Unites States of America as well as throughout the Western world that Muslims are terrorists who enjoy murdering the innocent. At this point in time, Americans fear for their lives at the prospect of ISIS coming to this nation and beheading all of us. Pamela Geller is a blogger who hates Muslims because they kill. She is a Jew who believes that Jews in the Middle East are confronted to the greatest threat in the history of Judaism. She has begun a campaign in New York City’s subways and buses to make clear to one and all that the Muslim religion is based on hatred. She has taken out ads that will soon appear in the Subway:
ISLAMIC JEW HATRED–IT’S IN THE QURAN

According to Ms. Geller the Muslim Holy Book contains passages about hating people.

Let me get this straight. The Jewish Old Testament and the Christian New Testament contain words of hate. Most religious books are filled with hatred toward “bad people.”

Oh, Ms. Geller, if you added up the number of Jews killed since the birth of Israel in 1948 that figure would not surpass the number of Jews murdered by Christian Germans on a single day of the Holocaust!

Muslims kill thousands, Christians killed millions. And, all killed because God was on their side!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I have never used ketchup on any breakfast item.

I go crazy if anything gets stuck between my teeth.

America is at an impasse except for those on social networks. They babble along.

I allowed a car to cut in the line, and no arm waved indicating a thank you!

To accept life is not to approve life.

I doubt if there are tooth fairies in Heaven.

At 84, I wonder about my mind, it would certainly help those at 24 if they did some mind wondering!

Those raised on city streets “read people” when encountering a stranger.

Misread people can result in misread consequences.

Long time since I bossed anyone. No regrets.

I so miss Rick, Newt, Herman, Mitt and the gals!
