NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

As dictator of America, I will decree the end of cars and emergence of bikes in urban areas.

I have never drunk a latte. Am I late for a good thing?

If you see a group of Japanese in a large city, they will be carrying at least one camera.

Saw little girls in Chicago holding brown faced dolls.

No more delightful sight than one year old chasing birds on grass.

I wonder why elderly women reject white hair, it is beautiful.

Mystery of one young man and five attractive girls.

I saw a man with tee shirt, “Keep Dodgers In Brooklyn.” Only sixty years too late.

If three people walking, chances are the one in middle does more of the talking.

I have only been on a tour bus about three times in life, three times too many.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

UK, Guardian: “Police Chief Silent About Shooting Teen”

I don’t think the teen was silent when he got shot.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Tax Credit For Fit Children Doubled”

I think we need more like tripling the credit.

France, Connexion: “Disneyland Paris Needs Bailout”

How about putting it in Berlin?

China, China Daily: “Stranglers Plan Move”

Just keep them out of Chicago where I live!

Norway, Norway Post: “Strike By Cleaners”

This is one dirty story not fit to be printed.

Bad Days Of October?

The past several months have been a continuous outbreak of bad news for President Obama. Someone gets sick, it is all his fault. A new terrorist group emerges, it is all his fault. There is drought in the land, blame it one the black dude. Cops blast away at young black teens,and there is no one else to blame but the man in the White House. Michelle Obama can’t even get the name right of the candidate for whom she is campaigning, and this one definitely was caused by her husband. We have come to the conclusion that President Obama must change his approach to politics.

1. Declare openly his apologies for whatever goes wrong on weekdays.

2. Declare a weekend moratorium on blaming the President.

3. Appoint Joe Biden as acting mistake guy of the week.

4. Offer to play golf with John Boehner and when he refuses, take the issue to the people of America.

5. Announce that after prayer, God told him that Ebola was planned by the Republican party to get him into trouble.

Just remember, get God on your side and troubles disappear.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Humans so frequently refer to God’s Wrath, is it themselves who are filled with anger?

I wonder if celibacy arose because there is no Mrs. God?

At age 84, I so like the word, “rebirth.”

One does not gain wisdom from age, it comes from an inquiring mind.

People at computers reach point where they lean back and gaze.

Since computers think, do they ever think about other computers?

There are sounds from my youth which never again will be heard.

Two lonely iPads met for lunch.

There is no doubt one must speak exiting the coffee shop on that damn cell phone!

Tea Party folk hate God’s work-people– but insist they like God!

Has Anyone Seen President Obama?

There is something very sad about the current position of President Obama within American society. Regardless of what happens anywhere in the world, he must take the blame. Today, it is Ebola which, according to Fox News is “the greatest threat in the history of America.”but who knows what tomorrow will become “the greatest threat in the history of America.” Oh, there was some minor event termed, the “Civil War” which resulted in the death of over 400,000, but how can that compare with the death of a man in Texas who died of Ebola? There is chaos in the Middle East, mainly deriving from policies of George Bush and the dynamic duo of Cheney and Rumsfeld, but who cares what happened several years ago, just blame it on the black dude in the White House.

President Obama is very careful where he goes these days in the political campaign for control of Congress. I wonder if he wonders why has he become so unpopular? I wonder if he wonders about paths not taken that might have been taken? Perhaps, if during his initial ninety days the focus was upon: dealing with the financial crisis, creating jobs, and making sense for our youth about Student loans. For example, hoiw about allowing them to have refinanced loans at a lower rate?

Perhaps, the thing he most likely regrets is developing a foreign policy in the Middle East and spending time educating Americans about that policy? He never functioned as an educator of Americans, and today he has lost respect among a large portion of the population-conservatives AND liberals!

THEY HAVE ARRIVED!!

The news is grim for Americans with news that “those people” have crossed the border and now live among the people of this fair land. No, I am not referring to zombies or ghouls, but to a force that is even more powerful than the Devil himself. Congressman Duncan Hunter of California informed the Fox News network that he has spoken with members of the Border Patrol and they have provided him with information that not even the President of the United States even knows. ISIS HAS ARRIVED! According to the former Marine officer, “ISIS is coming across the southern border. At least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas. Nobody’s talking about it.”

Just do the math. If ten have been caught that means at least a hundred have not been captured. Look at the facts. Duncan Hunter once served in the US Marines and who better than a Marine knows when the bad guys are here. We offer some advice to those seeking safety:

1. If you see someone dressed in black, take out your gun and blast away. Better play it safe.

2. If you see some masked men this Halloween don’t give them candy, give them bullets in the heart.

3. You might head for the mountains and get a cabin ready for the end of America.

Just remember, if Fox News reports anything, it must be right!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if one has to sholve snow in heaven.

Girl with black boots must attract attention.

Some place drink to right of computer, some to left.

I wonder if it snows on all planets?

Hopefully, Americans have a Rendevous with Reality.

Americans devote enormous amounts of time fearing things that will not happen.

If you seek happiness, avoid being anti-gay.

To face Death calmly is to believe in life.

There is no such thing as a surplus of Love.

There IS such a thing as too much Hate.

On Yom Kippur Jews shout, “to the next year in Jerusalem. Republicans shout, ” to the next year with more wealth for the wealthy!”

Lazy Days And Nights In Cuba

Cuba is associated with being a land where the sun shines and people enjoy swimming or walking in a beautiful evening. Alas, such is not the case for some men who are in Cuba, but are not in Cuba. There is a place called Guantanamo Bay prison in which reside some men who are termed to be “terrorists.” Have they been convicted of any crime? Of course not, someone said they were terrorists and therefore who could doubt what some Afghan said twelve years ago in the heat of battle? These men have asked for a trial, but, alas, having a trial for a terrorist, according to Republicans, is simply aiding the cause of terrorism.

Abu Wa’el Dhiab has been on hunger strikes for years. He simply wants to be placed on trial. Of course, this is the United States of America in which people are entitled to a trial by jury. However, if someone sometime calls you a “terrorist” then you cease to be a human being, and certainly you are not an American. To live in America and not be an American, such is the legacy of the Afghan war of George Bush.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “Police Officers In Brawl”

I assume they were arguing over who gets the bribe.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Climate Change Makes Hayfever Common”

AHCOO!

UK, Guardian: “Bishop Burqa Order”

Asking nuns to wear them??

France, Connexion: “Summer Road Deaths Down”

Not to worry, winter figures will go up!

Sweden, Local: “Suffer From Sexomania”

Please tell me how to catch this disease!

Death In Mexico Of Children

It is difficult to watch Fox News without coming away with concerns about hordes of children from Mexico headed for our borders in order to take away our jobs and live on the dole that is paid for by our taxes. It is rare for any American news outlet to focus on real issues facing the people of Mexico. During the past six years about 40,000 Mexicans have died as a result of drug lords or their own government. They have been murdered and the US media simply ignores this horror. In the Mexican town of Iguala, there is a college. Some students at a teacher college were upset about something and hijacked a bus as part of their protest. Of course, hijacking a bus is among the worst crimes known to humankind. Police in the community became upset at this juvenile behavior and blasted away at students murdering at least five.

The real story came later. College officials noted that about 57 students were missing from dormitories, and all they knew was students had been taking part in protests. Several hours later a mass grave was discovered with the bodies of at least twenty students. There is no doubt they were murdered by police. At least twenty more are still “missing.” THIS is the problem in Mexico, not a bunch of kids seeking to avoid getting murdered!!
