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.

With God On My Side

As one gazes around the world just about every leader, secular or religious, insists that God is on his side about any issue that is on the table for discussion. Muslim terrorists insists that God told them to murder women and children since God wants any and all bad people to die. I assume that means God needs a lot more bodies up in Heaven, or, perhaps he wants the Devil to get overwhelmed by the influx of untold millions of bodies to work the furnaces of Hell. All I know is that Tea Party members insist that God is on their side in protecting those with wealth from SOCIALISTS bent on taking from the rich to give to the poor.

Name the crime, name the brutality,name the desire for hate and violence, and those uttering these words insist that GOD IS ON MY SIDE. For some reason after creating the world and creating human life, God now wants these creations to no longer exist. I guess God just got tired of what he has made. On the other hand, if God is on my side He will stop the next war and He will stop the next brutality. Now,that would be a God worthy of our love.

Jeb Stands In Front Of Bush!

Theere is good news in America today. Jeb Bush has decided to offer his profound insights to the American People with promises that once another Bush is in place, security and prosperity will return to this land just as it did the last time we supported having a Bush in hand. Jeb noted that the “progressive agenda” has demonstrated failure. Yes, he is right. There are now 12 million Americans who have lost the opportunity to utilize the Emergency Room and are condemned to go to a doctor’s office! Jeb noted that as Governor of Florida he cut taxes. As I recall, his brother cut taxes and we went from a debt of about $3 trillion to one that was nearly ten trillion when he left office.

Oh well, Jeb continues insisting that our beloved Wall Street folks have only one thought in mind–how to trickle down jobs and wealth to those below. OK, so thanks to the other Bush we now have half those who graduate from college unemployed,underemployed or living with dad and mom. See, Jeb believes in family values. A family that lives together and prays together is jut one group of happy folk. They devote Sunday to offering prayers for the health and welfare of those who work on Wall Street.

Playing The Stage In Blackface?

When I was a child in the 1930s, there was still the vaudeville and white men would frequently color their face black in order to play t he role of a happy-go-lucky black man since it was proverbial that black folk loved to dance and be happy, even when they were in slavery. It was definitely OK to put on the black face if one wanted to portray the good lives of black folk. We now have the case of Rachel Dolezal who works for the NAACP who has been claiming for years that she was a black person. Unfortunately, mom and dad say she is a natural born, 100% white gal. So, examine her right to be black:

1. She definitely is a “person of color.” I do believe that white is a color.

2. She has the right on her census report to declare herself whoever she is.

3. She does present a happy face, that fits vaudeville presentation of blacks.

4. She enjoys being black. After all, all have a “black mood” at one point or another.

Frankly, who gives a damn as to how people portray themselves! Oh, when Rachel is walking the street please carry a sign that indicates she is a black woman in case she wants to get herself shot by some angry cop!

Dark Secrets Remain Hidden

These days stories emerge every so often about the good old days under the regime of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld when Muslim men were taken as prisoners and wound up in some hell hole far away from the good old USA. These “dark prisons” were simply an opportunity for members of the CIA to torture men, and since this brutality did not occur on American soil, who would know anything about it? The Polish government is admitting there were “black sites” where men were tortured.

Part of the problem of this campaign is that X number of prisoners were turned into American authorities for the reward or to get even with an enemy. Since these men were not allowed the semblance of a trial, how could they deny their guilt. The other aspect of this programs that it set in motion policies that encouraged government, whether under a Republican or a Democratic president to abuse the Constitution. Crying “wolf” is not a policy, it is an excuse to violate American law.

Set Up Another Hub For War

Let me make perfectly clear that I do not oppose sending military advisors to assist the Iraq armed forces. I do understand why President Obama just sent 480 US military men to establish a new hub which can be the site of training of Iraq soldiers. The task of Americans is to advise and assist. That is clear. But, the unclear part is what is the task of Iraq officers in this equation? We do know that Iraq officers steal the money of their men, we do know that Iraq military SELL equipment to ISIS. We DO know the Iraq military has provided ISIS with a large percent of their equipment. When ISIS appears on the scene of action, the Iraq military drops their weapons, and flees to avoid firing them.

So, before sending another US military force, Iraq should allow the following:

1. US officers will preside on pay day to ensure that Iraq soldiers get paid.

2. The Iraq government will check bank accounts of all officers.

3. Or, how about getting rid of officers and allowing men from the ranks to become officers?

Jeb One Tough Texan

Jeb Bush was raised in the great state of Texas and the Alamo is fixed in his mind how a brave group of men fought for freedom and died in the effort. Of course, one of the factors that led Texans to rebel against the government of Mexico which originally had allowed them to enter the country was the decision by those heathen backward people to end slavery in the country. So, Texas rebelled in the name of freedom.

Well, Jeb is now in Europe where he is making clear to Europeans that if elected, he will clean up the mess because no God-fearing Texan would allow Vladimir Putin to bully him. He also blasted President Obama for not standing up to Putin. When asked about his own plans, Jeb was direct: “Look, I’m here to learn, to listen and to learn and get a better sense of all this.” I assume he will learn that President Obama and EU leaders have implemented sanctions. In other words, Jeb now agrees with Obama!

Let’s Buddy UP With Al-Qeada

Once upon a time, a long,long time ago in the 1980s, the Republican President Reagan and the Republican President George H.W.Bush decided that a man named Osama bin Laden was a real neat guy. He had come to Afghanistan in order to fight the terrible Russian communists. Naturally our CIA gave him millions and millions of dollars and weapons to beat the bad Commies. OK, so a few things have changed. But, how about?

1. Forming an alliance with al-Qaeda to fight ISIS? This group of terrorists used to fight for al-Qaeda until they decided to form their own organization.

2. The US hates ISIS. Al-Qaeda hates ISIS. This seems like a marriage made in heaven.

3. Then again, the Houthis in Yemen hate Al-Qaeda.

The real foreign policy issue confronting America is how to ally both with al-Qaeda and the Houthis. Now, if Barack Obama can work out this small problem, he can solve all issues in the Middle East without sending US troops or using Drones.

Then again, Barack Obama could make friends with his Muslim brothers in ISIS and take over America.

Threats To Law And Order

I realize there are people in this nation who believe we confront real threats to our very existence from evil forces in the Middle East, in Russia, in China, but who among them has really confronted the greatest threat to our society? I am talking about poor parties. Damn it, why aren’t more Americans upset at the violence that can erupt when teens gather together at some pool party. I assume by now most readers have heard about the near riot that occurred in a Texas town when some BLACK kids went to the pool. Examine the issues that arise when BLACK kids swim:

1. They contaminate the water with their skin.

2. There is a possibility that some sweet white girl will have her body touched by one of those BLACK BOYS!

3. Add it up– a bunch of BLACK teens and how many guns are on them. They are very clever and have invented ways to hide guns when dressed in swim suits.

4. So, what else could officer Eric Casebolt do but pull a gun on these armed black kids coming from the pool. And, they were not waving water guns, you know how BLACK teens are?

Send In The Troops–Again!

As I recall it was a few years ago that we sent in the troops to Iraq and, as George Bush promised, a democracy was born in that land of sorrow. As I recall, Don Rumsfeld promised that Iraq folk would welcome us with open arms since we had gotten rid of the bad guy. I forget his name,something about Saddam. Well, guess what? We are sending in hundreds, thank God not thousands, of fresh American troops to help train the Iraq army. According to the Pentagon, “”We’ve determined it is better to train more Iraq security forces. We are now working through a new strategy on how to do it”

Let me get this straight. We have been sort of in Iraq for over a decade, and are working on a new strategy of training Iraq soldiers. Let me save the Pentagon some money. You cannot train men who do not want to fight! They need Iraq leadership, they need to believe they are fighting for their land rather than being robbed by their own officers.

How about hiring some guys from ISIS? They sort of know how to inspire men!

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

I suspect that Fox News had to do some twisting to prove that black kids at a pool party were a threat to cops.

In Texas, the first response to anything is to wave a gun.

I was raised in the slums of New York where only a few crazy guys carried a gun.

No one ever caught Al Capone with a weapon on him!

We are the only free nation in the world which is free about who can carry guns.

Do you ever wonder how we came to become this nation of weapons?

I did fire many weapons while in the army, but since that time have never gotten near one again.
