NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I am sick to my heart at the shooting in Charleston.

But, the commentary by Fox News people is even sicker than the shooter.

South Carolina displays Confederate flags on public buildings. Honor traitors!

I wonder if there is an antidote to the sickness that pervades many in the South?

Where did this love of guns begin? With the assassination of John KennedY?

In my New York City youth we had the Sullivan Act which regulated gun use.

In my New York City slum youth anyone with a gun was termed, CRAZY!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

Australia,Canberra Times: “Dirty Deals In Legislature”

In California they will even take water that gets a thumb down.

Slap them hard?

The question posed to our Congress?

Stars Of Yesterday

An entire new generation of telescopes are coming on the scene and we can now see back much further to the origin of our universe as well as the origin of all universes. We now can see the original stars that exploded and sent the elements of oxygen and carbon and iron into space where those elements finally led to the creation of life. I do understand that Republicans seeking the nomination for president are not scientists, but they might gaze into the past in order to grasp the enormity of our present. We were created billions of years ago. Our planet is merely a speck in space, we are, most probably an accident of creation.

We are the creatures of some distant event in time. Perhaps,we should recognize our responsibility to safeguard this mysterious creation and not destroy it with our stupidity. What is, is an accident, not a creation by a God with intent to create. This precious land, this precious piece of carbon and oxygen and iron needs to be gently cared for. We are the creation of a scientific accident,we are all scientists. We are all caretakers of this planet.

Japan, Japan Times: “Injured Robot Limps”

OK, so give one to we humans, we can avoid limping.

Norway, Norway Post: “Norwegian Troops To Iraq”

I assume they will be throwing snow balls at ISIS.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Man Mistakes Son For Deer”

Big deal, the Russian people mistake Putin for a leader of peace.

Just a normal day in the US Congress.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I guess police do need body armor, after all they might meet up with a five year old kid.

I so await the entry of Donald Trump into the circus.

Obama has learned the lesson that a president must be a politician with his party members.

Obama never has grasped that a president must use the Bully Pulpit to connect with people.

Well, a miracle did occur in Washington D.C., John Boehner backed Obama on trade agreement!

Politics occurs in every occupation as well as in Washington D.C.

Hillary has gotten around to talking like a Democrat.

USA,aol.: “Our Cross To Bear”

Actually, it is more like 18 crosses for those running for president.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Putin To Visit Pope Francis”

Most probably to give him a lecture about the glory days of Mother Russia.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: Few Care About Father’s Day”

Dads always have a friend in greeting card companies.

One meal a day will keep Wall Street in money?

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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think it is time for Herman Cain to return to the halls of battle.

I wonder if there is something that Barack Obama is not responsible for?

Barack Obama never understood the importance of a President to talk WITH the American people.

With only a single Republican female in the race, bring in some gals.

Hillary Clinton is acting the grandma role quite well these days.

Has anyone considered asking George H.W. Bush to enter the race, he only served one term!

On Goodwin’s Law

There is a law which recently has come to my attention. According to Goodwin’s Law, “as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving the Nazis or Hitler approached one.”

How about a few other laws?

1. If Rick Santorum speaks longer than five minutes, he invariably will make a nasty comment about Pope Francis and bad scientists.

2. If Jeb Bush makes a speech, he will, at some moment, refer to his brother, George, and get in hot water.

3. If Ted Cruz opens his mouth for more than two minutes the issue of what exactly did he learn at Harvard enters the picture.

4. If Sarah Palin makes any comment, at some point someone will wonder why John McCain ever selected her in 2008 will arise.

5. If Rick Perry appears wearing glasses, someone will make a comment about his “new approach.”

Stopsky’s Final Law, allow any candidate for the Republican Party to speak, and within one minute there is a reference to Barack Obama as the blame for Iraq problems.
