HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “Strict Rule For Asylum”

Just say “NO” as to whether you are a Muslim.

Norway, Norway Post: “Penis Tape Measure”

When it comes to pricks, no  one can match the Trump penis!

France, Connexion: “French President Poll Rises”

Nothing better than a few dozen French people to get more political support.

Russia,Moscow Times: “Russians Fear Terror Attacks”

From President Putin?

China, China Daily: “Send In The Clowns”

They already have arrived in the US Senate.

Send In The Yanks!

It was simply a  matter of time before President Obama finally caved into Republican macho attitudes about sending in Americans to fight in Syria and once more in Iraq. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter told a Congressional committee that we are sending in a US “expeditionary force  to target Islamic  rebels in Iraq and Syria.” There was  mention of a few thousand new troops going into war zones. So,what will happen:

US troops enter battles.

Some US troops are killed in battles.

Republicans demand more troops to protect the troops who are already there.

So, more troops enter and then more troops and then more and more.

I believe the American people have heard this story in Vietnam, in Afghanistan, in Iraq….

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times:  “Cash Appointed Minister”

I assume this means there will always be money at hand.

France, Connexion: “Police Appeal For Bomber Identity”

The least the bomber can do is tell them, they DID say, Please!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Surge In Interest In Army”

Not from those running for office in America!

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Very Popular Discussion”

Among Republicans it is always the faults of President Obama.

USA, Newsday:  “Pleads Guilty Goes To Jail”

Not if he works on Wall Street!

General Chris Christie Speaks Tough

As a former member of the US Armed Forces it makes me feel pride when real men such as Chris Christie urge going forth into battle against the bad guys. Chris is not afraid of ISIS of Russia or China. Let any one of these groups do something that he regards as evil and General Christie swings into action.

He will handle China’s building islands in the South China Sea: “The first thing  I’ll do with the Chinese  is I’ll fly Air Force One over the islands.” He also is going to bomb the hell out of ISIS.

Very interesting ideas. Air Force One is not armed so the Chinese can shoot the plane out of the air and save America for any more comments from “President” Christie.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human experience from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Donald Trump should turn to writing fiction. That’s all he talks about.

At some point, all Americans were refugees.

Such tough talk of war from Republicans who never served in the military.

Talk about ISIS turns Americans away from talk about higher minimum wages.

Bernie Sanders is dead, he simply does not come across as a leader in war.

Who knows what awaits America when fear rums rampant?

I wonder who we next hate when Muslims are not the topic?

Why ISIS?

I so enjoy the rants of Republican candidates how they will destroy ISIS by bombing or putting all Muslims in jail. Few examine the reasons for the ongoing success of ISIS. Reality is that young men and women are voluntarily seeking to become part of this group. Why?

1. ISIS offers hope of being part of some meaningful experience in a world in which few can obtain this desire.

2. ISIS offers fascinating videos on the Internet of young men doing daring things, young men shouting with glee.

3. The videos capture a spirit of belonging at a time when fewer and fewer feel they belong to any meaningful experience or group.

4. ISIs offers membership in a group of brave young men. Who cares what they are doing, they certainly come across as willing to sacrifice their lives.

5. The post industrial world emphasizes the Self, it does not enable people to feel part of the group. But, being part of the group has been the most important feeling for thousands and thousands of years.

6. Best of all ISIS provides a meaningful way to die.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Americans in 2015 respond to refugees as Americans responded to Jews fleeing Nazism.

American politicians so enjoy pretending they are brave warriors.

Not a single person running for president among the top Republican candidates ever wore the uniform.

Gee, imagine General Trump leading men into battles?

I assume Ben Carson has someone on his staff who shows him where Syria is on the map.

Then again, Carly Fiorina is ready for combat–verbal, that is.

Republicans need Rick Perry, at least he was once a soldier.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

USA, NY Post: “McDonald’s Gunman Dies”

Oh,them french fries.

HEADLINES FOM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines from the world press along with our comments.

Thailand,Bangkok Post: “Abbot Found Dead In Temple”

Hopefully, on his knees with hands folded in prayer.

Egypt, al-ahram: “Hunt More Suspects”

Forever more, forever more in the land of Egypt.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Oldest Fuck Word”

This is simply one fucking boring story.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Air Strikes Kill Civilians”

The object of an air strike is to KILL –someone.

UK, Guardian: “Let’s Trump Donald”

Sorry, Donald is trumping the Republic an field!

If Carly Fiorina Became President

Carly at initial Cabinet meeting.

“OK, it is time to demonstrate some good old American initiative. I think we can get a good deal by purchasing Swaziland. We offer any Hispanic immigrant an all expenses paid job in this African nation–which, of course will now become our latest purchase. I bet Donald will be jealous as hell when I show the country how to end our immigration problem.”

Meet with Joint Chiefs of Staff. “OK, let’s get some boots on the ground in Iraq and Syria. look,any boots will do,how about the illegal immigrants, if they want to remain here, it is only fair for them to fight for this country.”

Carly to Republican congressional leaders: “I want action. Make clear to congressmen that if the fail to do the job, they no longer have one. Make clear this tough broad will not tolerate lazy bums!”

Carly to Attorney General: “So, is Hillary yet in jail? What the hell is going on, send her to prison,she contradicted me!”
