HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press.

Indonesia, Jakarta Post: “Prayer Cloaks In High Demand”

I have a hunch this is in Gaza!

UK, Guardian: “And, So It Goes”

If in the US Congress, the end of this is: “nowhere!”

Canada, Toronto Post: “Right To Be Forgotten”"

This sums up children from Central America seeking safety from murderers.

US, NY Post: “Amputate Penis By Mistake”

This story gives me a rise!

China, China Daily: “High Speed Train Breaks Down”

I assume this train is now known as a Slow Speed Train?

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cheap Viagra Good For Men”

Now, if we could find some cheap young gorgeous women!

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Size Isn’t Everything”

Ah, my constant excuse when engaged in sex!

America Needs A Healer

As one reviews the history of American presidents over the past fifty years it is apparent that not a single one was able to create a sense of leadership that encompassed those of differing views and beliefs. The polarization of Americans into separate groups, each committed to firm beliefs has grown and grown. Our society lacks the sense that only a leader could convey that those who seek a different America also have a place within America. The last American leader who offered that sense of a society bound together seeking a new America was Robert Kennedy. He died on the road to becoming president because another of those fun nuts was angry and decided to end a life. After all, as the National Rifle Association argues, one has the Constitutional right to kill, if one believes his rights are threatened.

On the night when Martin Luther King was murdered, Robert Kennedy was in Indianapolis. He spoke calm words to those who were Negroes, he spoke of the pain that he, as a white man had suffered, when a white man murdered his brother. He then walked the streets of Indianapolis offering words of calm to angry Negroes. Robert Kennedy was just as comfortable in a group of white conservative workers as he was with liberals. His words were always about the importance of recognizing that to be an American was to be concerned about ALL Americans. Neither Bush nor Obama has ever been able to convey that feeling. For Robert Kennedy, the plight of those who were poor or disadvantaged was primary to the American dream. He often took the side that was being oppressed, regardless of political consequences. And, thus he died with his dream of a united caring America.

I was struck at lack of presence of President Obama at the border to hug and welcome children seeking refuge. Yes, such a sight would be terrible politics, but such a sight would be what a leader of
America must convey.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

In my childhood I knew every store owner in the neighborhood, they were neighbors.

Mystery of life: Man has large bag of coins.

Sometimes, best to forget and get on with life.

To sigh, is to have a moment of peace.

For some reason, the scratch offs I purchase never have the right numbers.

Elderly women always smile when seeing friends.

Babies and elderly toddle when walking.

Carrying three sandwiches in hand is the limit for most.

No favorite basketball team in any tournament this year.

Know when to cut your losses.

Many want things from the Lord, but they don’t want to live in his neighborhood.

In my Depression youth, the wealthy were hated.

Some seek good in people, some seek evil in them.

Shows the worth of a warning.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Some never forgive.

Some never forget.

Friday, an end for some, a beginning for others.

If you refuse to hate, there is no reason to forgive anyone.

There is a time and place for everything.,

Some cut sandwich in half to eat it.

Some people are readily forgotten.

I have always followed the star of life.

Their are riches in the wallet, and riches in the heart.

In a group, there is always someone who will cast the first stone.

Some deserve, some don’t.

Some tweet, some are tweeted.

Blue skies for me means peace and harmony.

In the end, the unknown becomes the known and the known becomes unknown.

Some think with certainty.

Find purse, turn it in, she gave me $30. Wow!

I am a stranger among strangers.

Hopefully, what we leave behind, surpasses what we arrived with.

I wonder about wearing a white beard.

All have a right to procrastinate.

Rick Perry To The Border

If you are an American citizen, the good news is your night will not be disturb by hordes of criminals wandering the streets of your neighborhood. I can now promise each and every American the days of fear are over! Governor Rick Perry of the great state of Texas has mounted his horse, and dashed toward the border with Mexico in order to stand, armed with assault rifles in order to blast away at the hordes of Mexicans headed for the border. Rick has ordered over a thousand National Guardsmen to take up arms and march toward the Rio Grande in order to prevent an invasion of ‘those people.’ Governor Perry believes the recent arrival of Mexicans has become a threat to our NATIONAL SECURITY. He believes we need the National Guard, more Border Patrols, jet planes, and the assistance of our Navy in order to repel terrorists headed for America.

Of course, the new “horde” consists of children fleeing from beatings, rape and murder in their native lands. They seek refuge with relatives in America which certainly classifies as a threat to our NATIONAL SECURITY. Naturally, Governor Perry blames you-know-who for this “disaster.” Just check with whoever is discussing illegal immigrants on Fox News and they will make clear the you-know-who is none other than the you-know-who inhabiting the White House.

Republican Congressman Steve Pearce made a weekend visit to Honduras and returned to inform Americans that children were fleeing due to economic interests, not due to fear of violence. During his weekend, Congressman Pearce never left the hotel due to his fears of violence. Oh well, a weekend makes anyone an expert, particularly if he never left the hotel!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Barack Obama comes across as a man alone.

As we grow older, we forget how we were mentally formed.

Today, is simply a revision of yesterday.

We can gaze into another’s eyes, but can we gaze into the soul?

Gentleness of daughter to dad is a wonder and joy.

In the end, I am who I am, no other.

Dawn breaks, question is -will we?

I knew, but never knew my father.

Hopefully, the child always remains in the adult mind.

Cherish each memory of life.

A nation enthralled by emotion is a nation headed for disaster.

A major issue is whether humans can behave as humans.

Some teen girls walk with wondrous eyes.

Earth On Hot Streak

There are hot streaks in sport when a player just can’t fail to hit a home run or a team cannot lose a game. There are hot streaks in gambling when one simply continues hitting sevens with dice, roll after roll. There are hot streaks in life when a guy just continues meeting gorgeous gals who desire his body. There are hot streaks in politics when the economy booms, not thanks to you or peace reigns in the world, no thanks to you, and there are hot streaks in poker when I just can’t cease being dealt a royal flush. But, there are also hot streaks in this planet we call, Earth. New figures reveal that Mother Earth had a temperature average of 61.2 F, which means we wonderful Earthians have established a new high for hot temperature. This figure is 1.2 F over the 20th cemtury average!

Wow! If we Earthians can continue on this hot streak, who knows, maybe we can reach a point at which it is the end of all hot streaks? Perhaps, we can get so hot on our hot streak that folks on Venus might wish to hop over to our nice hot planet for a break from those Venusian hot winters? Perhaps, it is time to establish a World Cup for hot streaks? The nation that raises temperatures the highest is awarded with a huge cup filled with the hottest water known to humans?

Friendships of youth last forever and a day.

So, what is the day after forever like?

There was a moment in life when the penny was important.

Long time since heard, “a penny for your thought.”

Most worry about the money they desire rather than the money they need.

Wars today are fought by those whose family are not part of the 5%.

I wonder how one can invest in wars and make money?

Most commentators on Fox News just hate poor people.

No greater expectation than moving elsewhere.

To be poor is to be innocent.

Easy to forget our good deeds.

Elderly at McDonald’s cluster together in morning.

Hands of time move slower when we get older.
