Whatever Happened To America?

The evidence is quite clear, Republicans will gain more seats in Congress, and most probably may secure control of a majority of seats in the US Senate. The most interesting question is: why will Americans reward a party with victory which seeks to make life harder for the average American? Frankly, this phenomena has occurred in the past, and will happen in the future. We live in interesting times. We live in an era in which those under age, forty, lack any sense of their economic needs, and prefer fiddling with fingers than fiddling with their minds. OK, blame Barack Obama for his failures to understand how Presidents must lead, but the alternative to Barack Obama is not the Koch brothers.

In the past when most American engaged in hard physical labor, they understood the boss was in his office and they were out on the assembly line. They did not need to go to college in order to understand their economic interests were not similar to those of the boss. Today, our young people lack a sense of CLASS. They do not understand there IS a Working Class, and they are in it. They do not understand that when one is in the Working Class, one must vote for their economic interests. And, they certainly are not those of this Republican Party.

The disaster will come. Americans will learn the goals of Republicans are not their goals. Hopefully, in 2016 there will be another change in attitudes by Americans.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I do not understand why women place blond in beautiful dark hair.

I love my white hair, I would die for it.

I was in a movie theater in which no one was in the initial three rows. Another bomb threat?

These days with my bad hearing a prefer subtitled films.

Those sitting in the middle of a row have a dilemma, exit right or left?

Store had a sign, “Final Sale Days.” I wonder if that is forever?

I wonder if Jesus would actually return to this planet?

I recall during basic training being taught about the Geneva Convention, is that still around?

I saw a license plate that read: “God’s Work Is Uplifting” For some strange reason I read it as “God’s Work Is Shoplifting”

Dark clouds. Lightening. I guess God is angry about something.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if elections for God are financed by the Koch Brothers?

I walk in the air, never in malls.

A woman dressed in white always captures my attention.

Cell phones compel people to spend their days looking down.

I never walk in sandals.

My hope is that Death takes off for a winter break.

Allowing a car to get in front of you means it is the last car to get the green

So, What Is Israel Policy In Middle East?

There is nothing more fruitless than seeking to discuss Israel policies toward Palestinians or in the Middle East with American Jews who are convinced any and all problems confronting the nation of Israel are the fault of Muslims who refuse to compromise and attain the end to conflict. The prevailing view of AIPAC is that Israel is blameless,and any and all problems stem from Muslims who hate Jews. I find ironic that Israel has no problem with Germany, whose former rulers murdered six million Jews, but are convinced that Palestinian leaders who never engaged in mass slaughter of Jews have hearts filled with hatred and will not end their war against defenseless Israel.

The bottom line is a simple question: what is Israel policy during the coming five years or the coming ten years toward Palestinians? At present, the only policy is to gradually gain control against Palestinians by seizing their lands. I apologize for this remark. Israel is a small nation surrounded by untold millions of Muslims whose only thought is about destroying Israel. Of course, the ONLY nation in the Middle East, along with Iran, which refuses to allow UN inspectors into nuclear facilities is–Israel. The ONLY nation which has atomic bombs is -Israel. The bottom line is that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lacks any foreign policy that deals with the major need for Israel-peace with all its neighbors and economic cooperation. I do realize in writing these words I am considered to be a “Jew hating Jew.”

Oh, Israel just beat out an American offer to India, and will be selling that nation 8,000 Spike missiles and 800 launchers. Gee, I wonder if Republicans will say anything about this sale which destroyed hundreds of jobs for Americans? When is is a choice between American jobs and campaign contributions, guess which wins out?
