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?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Republican candidates engage in pissing contests as to which one loves Israel the most.

A modern miracle– ONE INTELLIGENT SUGGESTION AS TO THE ALTERNATIVE TO NEGOTIATIONS WITH IRAN.

I continue hoping that Sarah Palin will return from hunting and hunt for the presidency.

I’m for Elizabeth Warren for president.

Ted Cruz is the modern version of Joe McCarthy.

I suggest that Ben Carson return to the hospital and do something he knows about-cut up people.

How about a presidential campaign without a Bush or Clinton?

Veterans For Trump

I am very upset. I am a veteran of the Korean War. I just discovered that Donal Trump has organized a VETERANS FOR TRUMP group and no one told me anything about it. OK, it turns out that several members of this organization were enrolled and nobody told them they were members. This certainly is a unique approach to gaining members for political candidates. Just enroll them without telling them. Let me suggest to Donald a few tips on how to pursue this idea.

1. One free drink at any Trump casino for any veteran.

2. Allow we veterans the wonderful opportunity to have our picture taken with Donald Trump.

3. Of course, Donald could give us a free night at his hotels. John McCain,who hates we veterans, would never give such an offer.

4.Donald,how about a free visit to the Mexican border on your next visit?

Shoot Em Up

Governor Bobby Jindal has rushed to inform the people of America that he intends to ensure there are no more shootings in movie theaters. The other day John Russell Houser sort of shot up the audience in a movie theater before killing himself. So,these might be the was in which Bobby intends to prevent movie theater shootings:

1.As one enters the theater each person is given a weapon. Handgun, rifle, machine gun, you choose.

2. Once the first shot is fired, everyone stands up, displays their NRA hats and begins blasting at the source of the initial shot.

3. Bobby Jindal will immediately rush to the theater armed with a bazooka and blast away. If the theater is destroyed then all shootings will cease.

4. An NRA member could be stationed at all movie theaters to have an immediate armed presence.

5. Of course,Bobby could ask ISIS to guard our movie theaters.

Thus Bobby will become the boy hero of America!

Obama And Stewart

President Barack Obama appeared on the Jon Stewart show and was delightful. He was relaxed, he told jokes an carefully explained the nuclear accord with Iran. Of course, one wonders why he did not go on national television and explain all aspects of the negotiations and make clear there were safeguards. Obama has constantly refused to use the power of television to get across ideas. He never explained the Affordable Care act. In failing to explain these ideas the president allows Fox News to take control of the dialogue. They set the plate,and all must eat the food that is on their table. Every great American president in the 20th century has used the Bully Pulpit of the mass media to explain complex ideas to Americans.

Barack Obama has to the most inept politician of the twentieth and twenty first centuries. Use the media to propagandize your ideas. After all, you are the President. For God’s sake use the power of that office!

Muslims Murder Muslims

Another day,another murderous attack by one Muslim group upon another Muslim group. Some college students in Turkey were planning to go to the city of Kobani which is on the border of Syria and Turkey. Their plan was to rebuild parks and centers for children.They had no political agenda other than aiding fellow Muslims who are undergoing the horrible aspects of war.

A suicide bomber from ISIS blew himself up along with 30 other Muslims and wounded dozens more Muslims. I gather the bomber will be conversing with Allah about how he murdered Muslims. Somehow, I do not believe Allah will be thrilled with such news. Wouldn’t be wonderful if Muslims agreed not to murder one another–at least for a month!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump, Dick Cheney, and little George Bush, all made certain not to fight for their country during war.

Donald Trump received cheers from the crazies when he insulted Americans who had to surrender.

It increasingly is evident that most Republicans dislike those who serve their country in war.

Donald has seized the favor of those who feel lost in modern America.

Republicans cheer when words of hate are uttered against the President. Such is their patriotism.

Donald Trump’s idea of war is attacking attractive women-without mercy.

Dr. Ron Paul Speaks

Dr.Ron Paul has not been in Congress for a few years, but his spirit lives on with a television commercial. In the commercial, the good doctor, of medicine that is, warns each and every American that doom awaits. The Federal Reserve System is in chaos, the Obama administration does not know its ass from its elbow, but the the good doctor knows best how to save we Americans against doom that awaits when the economy collapses due to mishandling by the Obama folk.

Funny, but I just lived through a collapse of the economy and that occurred under the administration of one,George Bush. As I recall, the Bush/Paul medicine of lower taxes for the wealthy, job providers that is, led to an incredible collapse of our economy. Somehow, lower taxes for those with wealthy somehow does NOT create jobs except for accountants of those with wealth!
