Iran On Our Minds

The American people will know within the coming twenty four hours whether or not John Kerry and fellow negotiators have been able to convince the government of Iran to agree to a process of ensuring that nation does not proceed on the road to nuclear weapons. At this point the only Middle Eastern nation that is permitted to make nuclear weapons is Israel. After all, we know that Israel would never invade another area in the region. The only nation that is allowed to bar UN inspectors into its nuclear facilities is Israel. So, it is time for Iran NOT to follow the Israel path and open its facilities to the United Nations and not to proceed with creating nuclear weapons. I do not know if an agreement will be reached. I do know that Iran has the right to develop a nuclear industry if it is based on principles of no nuclear weapons.

Reality: at some point the world has to bestow trust on the government of Iran. The agreement, if reached, will not be perfect. That is reality. Hopefully, with economic sanctions ending and goods and trade with Iran the young people of that nation will eventually get the right to express their desires for peace and the threat of war from Iran will end.

Life Before Obamacare

It is now two years since that hated event when President Obama imposed the worst example of tyranny this nation has endured. He imposed a law that requires people to be healthy. In the annals of tyranny this must be the most vile and hateful law that has ever been passed since it takes away the right of the American people to be ill. So, what has happened to this nation since we now must become healthy?

1. Nearly ten million people who lacked health insurance now have it.

2. The cost of health care has declined.

3. People with pre-existing conditions now have low cost access to health insurance.

4. Doctors are not rebelling.

5. Senator Ted Cruz who denounced this evil has now asked to become a member of Obamacare!!

And, the sky has not fallen!

Religious Freedom For All

There are times when Republicans employ the word, “freedom” in ways that defy any semblance of intelligence. I was raised when the expression “religious freedom” referred to the right of people to practice their religion in face of discrimination and hatred. Heck, back in those days, we were concerned that this fight entailed the very right to even live because some government refused to allow people to pray. We have moved a long way from the days of the Holocaust to a time when someone who makes cakes is now the center of religious freedom. In the state of Indiana as well other parts of the USA, if those who bake cakes do not wish to sell their products to gays and lesbians they have now have a constitutional right to say, NO.

I wonder what next will become a right that Republicans will make into a law:

1. I have a constitutional to drive my car at whatever speed God says.

2. I have a constitutional right to pee in the streets, it is my dick!

3. I have a constitutional right to bring my gun to the Congressional galleries. Just check the 2nd Amendment.

The world has gone mad now that Republicans control state government.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Canada,Toronto Star: “Chaos In Yemen”

Sorry, yesterday’s news.

Japan, Japan Times: “Bad Boys Back In Town”

I wouldn’t mind the bad boys, it is the ignorant who bother me.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Will Remember His Name””

It’s Ted Cruz and he will make certain you remember his name.

France, Connexion: “Nuns Take To The Road”

I assume it is the road that leads higher and higher.

Norway, Norway Post: “Kids Weak On Drawing Conclusions”

Heck, we have a Congress of alleged adults who can not even conclude how to pass a law!

Turkey Is Finally Upset

Turkish President Recep Erdogan runs a tight ship in his land and increasingly decides who can speak and what they say. He has allowed his nation to become an open land for Jihadists headed in the direction of Syria. Ordinarily, he does not comment about terrorists except to complain that those opposing such people continue to insult Turkey about the so-called genocide toward Armenians a century ago. But now, Recep is really upset. “Iran is trying to dominate the region. Could this be allowed? This has begun to annoy us, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states. This is really not tolerable and Iran has to see this. Iran has to change its view. It has to withdraw any forces whatever it has in Yemen as well as in Sryia.”

Turkey has a powerful armed force and it could assist in the war against terrorism. So far, it has remained on the sidelines. Perhaps, it is time for Turkey to get serious. A first step would be to halt the passage of young jihadists through its land who are headed for Syria and Iraq. Glad to have you on board, Mr. Erdogan!

We Are Surrounded!

The election in Israel is over and Bibi Netanyahu is still the prime minister. There is one thing that is certain in life, leaders of Israel will shout to the rooftops that there nation is surrounded and therefore it is imperative to take the first step in defense by attacking Gaza. IN 2013 this Muslim entity was invaded by Israel causing the death of 39 and the wounding of 3,964. In 2014 Gaza was invaded which resulted in the death of 2,314 and the wounding of 17,124. As you will recall this invasion originated because some Muslim men murdered three innocent Jewish boys. It only stands to reason and fairness that if three Jews are murdered, then 2,000 Muslims must be killed including 1600 innocent men, women and children. I usually get many Jews upset because of my refusal to buy into the chant that innocent Israel is surrounded by Arab states that only seek to kill each and every Jew in that land. Examine the record:

Egypt has not fought a war in nearly forty years and its army lacks the capability to challenge the IDF.

Jordan can hardly keep under control its minority which is composed of Palestinians.

Lebanon lacks any armed force although it does have Hamas and thousands of missiles. An attack on Israel would unleash the full force of the IDF.

Saudi Arabia has never fought a war against any major power.

Syria?

Iraq?

Israel has 80 atomic bombs including submarines that can fire nuclear weapons.

What was that again about being “surrounded?”

Oh, Them Jewish Boys!

Growing up in about seventy years ago, it was quite common among Christians to make comments about how Jewish men were cheap and always watched the dollar. We Jewish men were the sort of guy who would watch every dollar when out on a date. I thought those days of associating Jews with cheapness were gone. Alas, I did not know about author Lena Dunham and her experiences with Jews. Heck, not only does she date a Jewish guy, but he is even one of her best friends. She developed a quiz about Jews and it was published in the New Yorker magazine. She wants the world to know that Jewish guys do not tip when paying the bill. I assume from her comments that Jewish guys DO pay the bill, but check very carefully what goes to the waiter.

OK, we are in the year 2015, but we are still in the year when Jews were a bunch of men who did not allow their money to get into the wrong hands. OH, Ms. Dunham does date a Jewish guy. I assume she pays for dinner and she certainly gives more than 5% as a tip. Who the heck is this woman? My question: why the heck do you date a guy who is never opens his wallet when out on a date with you?

Once More Into Gaza?

For over two decades American foreign policy has been based upon the foreign policy of Israel when it comes to analyzing the situation in the Middle East. Heck, liberals like Bill Maher buy into the Israel claim they are surrounded by evil forces, and the center of this evil coalition is based in Gaza. This small piece of land has repeatedly been invaded by Israel forces and thousands of people have been murdered, oops, let me be politically correct, killed. In the last invasion fewer than 80 Israelis died, and about 2,200 people in Gaza died. Yes, there are PEOPLE in Gaza. A major problem in Gaza is that its Hamas leaders lack any sense of reality about how to proceed upon the road to peace. They continue buying into the Israel claim that Hamas has the resources to fight against Israel.

The Hamas Qassam Brigade, the Islamic Palestinian Jihad and other such groups are getting ready to send some more missiles into Israel and thus enable Israel to send in its air force and army so that another 2000 innocent people can be killed. Oh, they are building tunnels. Here is the reality:

The combined forces of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Hamas, do NOT threaten Israel. In the first place, neither of these “armies” have the slightest desire to fight against Israel. Oh, Israel has EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS!

It is time for Hamas to confront reality — they will not defeat Israel. It is time for Israel to confront reality –they are not surrounded by evil forces seeking its destruction!

Saudi Arabia To The Rescue!

The American people can sleep peacefully in their beds tonight, and Fox News can cease attacking Barack Obama for being a coward. The air force of Saudi Arabia has swung into action and is bombing the hell lout of Shiite forces in Yemen. The Shiite Huthi rebels have taken over control of the government of Yemen and are in pursuit of former Sunni leaders who have fled to the south. Saudi Arabia regards itself as the protector of all Sunnis in the world. For decades money from Saudi Arabia has poured into the coffers of great Sunni followers of people like the Taliban or Osama bin Laden, and its madrases schools have educated as few generations of Muslims about evil Western powers such as the United States of America. I guess the Saudi government has finally realized their efforts to spread a traditional sense of the Muslim faith has sort of wound up creating terrorist groups all over the world.

As long as terrorist forces did not bother the Saudi government, its leaders felt perfectly comfortable, but when the Shiite Huthi, who are next door, arose and drove out its Sunni leaders, then the Saudi government decided it was time to get serious about controlling terrorism. So, the Saudi air force is pounding away. Let us hope its air force is as good as the madrases schools which were successful in producing terrorists!
