Another Shooting

There is one topic that is always on TV or discussed on social media or completely ignored by the NRA.A man who worked for a TV station was fired because of his strange behavior and, naturally, what else could he do,but prove that he is a man filled with rage and anger. Lester Flanagan had been working on a TV station in Virginia where he drove most people nuts with some rather strange words and behavior.He was finally fired,and, what else could he do to prove that he was not a nut–return to the studio while former colleagues were on the air and shoot them. He later turned the gun on himself.

The only sort of saving grace is that he was not another nut case white guy. Naturally, the NRA interprets this event as proof that guns save lives. If only all people on the set had a gun there could have been a shoot-out at the OK TV studio. There is no question this was one sick dude.The real question is why do people who display weird behavior have scant problems getting gun?

I expect the usual comments about too many guns and the need to regulate them.The only end to this madness is when American voters finally decide that common sense requires and end to gun ownership for most Americans!

Oh, for the record, he was a bona-fide Christian.

Kim Jong Un-ADVANCE!

Kim Jong-un is very upset. Perhaps, he gazed in the mirror and saw his haircut, one must say that when it comes to having an interesting haircut, the pudgy guy from North Korea is among the most powerful leaders in the world. After all, when one inhabits a world in which your kick of the day is having an uncle or a general or whoever shot is the highlight of power, there must be moments when the little guy wants to strut the world stage as someone important. So, he issued an order>

“The supreme commander(that’s me)of the Korean People’s Army will enter a wartime state to be fully ready to launch surprise actions.” Now, let me get this right, you want to “launch surprise actions” so you inform the world that you want to launch surprise actions! Perhaps, it is time to spend the day maneuvering your toy soldiers.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Denmark,Copenhagen Post: “Naked Man Discovered In Bed”

Me, I would rather enjoy a naked woman.

UK, Guardian: “Who Controls The World?”

Easy one–those with gobs of money!

Israel, Jerusalem Post: “Rabbi Fired”

I assume this is Kosher.

USA, aol: “I will Deliver A Budget”

What is in it, is another question.

Sweden, Local: “I’m Alive”

So, fellow Republicans, just wait for some other comments!

Reflections On Baseball

I was raised in the golden age of baseball. Pitchers were expected to pitch an entire nine inning game, and players were expected to play the entire game, batting and in the field. In those days, a baseball game usually was completed within two hours. Today, one is happy if the game concludes within four hours. These days pitchers are restricted to about 105 pitches, in my youth a pitcher was expected to pitch the entire nine innings. It stands to reason the more innings one pitches, the stronger one’s arm becomes.

We baby, we coddle modern baseball players. Sorry, baseball is a passive sport with most players not in action more than a small percent of the game.Yet,players today must be “rested.” For God’s sake, the first baseman is just standing there catching a ball.An outfielder just stands and watches, occasionally, he must run to catch a ball. Now this is real hard work!

OH,and today, we pay someone $5 million for hitting 220!

Baseball has become a boring sport with pampered men as players.

Jimmy Carter Is Ill

Jimmy Carter has cancer and it is possible that he will die. This man has been vilified more than any other politician in American history. As of this date, Jimmy Carter remains the only American president who assisted Israel in attaining a peace treaty with an Arab nation. He worked to bring together Israel and Egypt and through his diligence and care, a peace treaty was accomplished. And, what is the current reaction of Israel and many American Jews–Jimmy Carter hates Jews and he hates Israel. Why? Because Carter has worked for peace that includes respecting the rights of Palestinians. In the world of AIPAC, one must blindly obey whatever Bibi Netanyahu says or does or the result is–YOU HATE JEWS AND YOU HATE ISRAEL!

We salute Carter as a great American. One day historians will give him credit for working for peace, for making human rights an important focus of American foreign policy and for devoting his post presidency to humanitarian efforts, not to make money!

Talk About Nothing

There was a “debate” a few nights ago between ten men in which the great issues confronting America were discussed. Let me list the key issues confronting the United States of America:

1. Illegal immigrants taking jobs away from Americans. Naturally,most college graduates these days are dying to pick peaches, apples and lettuce.

2. I hate Hillary,more than you.

3. Who supports the Republican Party the most.

4. Who hates the dude from Africa the most?

5. Who likes or dislikes Megyn Kelly the most?

6. Who wants to save women from making a mistake the most?

7. The guy named Donald.

Of course, a few minor issues were not discussed.

1. Student debt.

2. Our crumbling infrastructure.

3. Income inequality.

4. Health care for women.

5. Something about that thing about RACE!

Advice To Joe Biden

Joe, my advice is rather short:

NO. DEFINITELY NO. NEVER NEVER NEVER.

Just enjoy your retirement with the grand kids.

You are a good decent man. You are respected. Go for the White House job, and you will wind up as the punch line for every comedian in America!

NO NO NO

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Back To Military Option”

Republican mantra as long as they don’t fight.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “More Money Needed”

Please don’t ask billionaires to contribute.

Sweden,Local: “Is Jesus A Myth”

These days,he is not only a myth, he never existed.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Putin Says Sepp Blatner A Hero”

A man after his own heart, greedy!

Norway,Norway Post: “Police Love Free Travel”

Also, free pass after a shooting.

South Africa, Mail & Guardian: “Board Directors Get Raises”

And, guess who does not!

Donald Is In Iowa

Each passing day makes it clearer and clearer that Donald Trump is not leaving the stage until he is dragged off it. The 700 seat high school auditorium was jam packed and hundreds waited outside to hear the words of a fighter. Several told reporters that Donald was “the most brilliant man in America.” while others praised his willingness to express outrageous ideas that many held in their hearts about illegal immigrants or loafers or welfare cheats. One person said: “he thinks about work while others talk about work.”

It is clear that about 20% of Americans feel alienated from the entire political process and he is tapping into that anger. Frankly, for some,it makes no difference as to what he actually says as long as he “says it like it is.” He has burst upon he scene as a man of action. Of course, when it comes to actually fighting in a war, Donald gets sick or hurt.

Donald will not shut up and he has the money to keep on talking!

Magic Number Is 16!

It is now official –there are fifteen men and one woman seeking to become president. So, the new magic number for Republicans is: SIXTEEN!

Sixteen blind people stumbling through the maze of political ideas.

Sixteen people who believe they are an expert on foreign policy, domestic policy, policy towards Uganda, and a few other nations they could locate on a map.

Sixteen mouths fuming with anger and hate.

Sixteen people engaged in the contest as to who can shout the loudest.

Sixteen people seeking to outdo the other in expressing hatred of Barack Obama.

Fifteen people seeking out shout Donald Trump.

Sixteen people who could not pass a test on American history.

Solution: Why can’t all sixteen be on the ballot?
