Just A Ride In A Van

I understand that some folks in Baltimore, Maryland are upset at the cops in their city. I don’t know why these people are in the streets shouting and looting and yelling at the work of our believed police force. So, what actually happened to this guy, Freddie Gray who has caused this problem that currently upsets many folks in the city of Baltimore? First, he looked directly into the eyes of city police, anyone knows that is a major criminal act. Then, he ran away, didn’t this idiot realize that running away from cops is, in effect, a provocation? Of course, if he had run directly at the cops, this would have constituted a direct challenge to their safety and they would have blasted away. Anyway, we now know the cops put Freddie in a van, shackled him but did not place a seat belt to protect his body front the movement of the van.

OK, so the cops decided to play a game, one they have played many times before without causing a civil disturbance. The game is “driving the van in such a way that the prisoner in the back gets thrown around. Heck, this is just like going to a carnival and taking a ride. Apparently during the “rough ride” Freddie was thrown against a bolt and his head suffered some injuries that resulted in his death. I do not understand why so many folks are upset. Are they against rides in a carnival? Oh, some accidents do occur in the carnival, why not in a cop carnival whose goal is simply to give everyone laugh??

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “US Student Sues Swedish University”

Damn it, he got his degree and was not in debt!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Police Post Speed Meter”

It only applies to cars driven by black folk.

I will woof on this story.

Greece, Kathimeri: “Denial”

The national song of the American Congress.

How does anyone know?

American Heroes

As one who has taught the new generation of American youth it is never surprising to me how they display attitudes of contempt for those who fight for this nation. These young people much prefer the world of social media to the world that exists out of their home. Latest figures indicate the average American young person spends 90% of their time at home engaged with their iPad or some other piece of technology. Of course, when they go off to college and then spend time engaged in some form of disrespect to women or those who fight for their nation, it is never surprising about the outcome. A group of patriotic young men who belong to the University of Florida chapter of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity were having another of their joyous times on the beach at Panama City Beach resort when they spotted some disabled veterans.

So, what did these young heroes do? They stole their flags and urinated at them. Just another day in the lives of our young males in the year, 2015. A large percent of these young men lack any respect for anyone who serves the nation. Piss on these sad group of young men.

WE Did It, You Didn’t

Among the historical topics that are not taught very well in either the United States or Russia is what happened during World War II. Most Americans believe “we won World War II,” all by ourselves. In Moscow the Melendov Museum of Photography decided to offer an exhibit of photos about World War II. It was entitled: “The Allies During World War II.” This meant the exhibit was focusing upon efforts by England and the US during the war. Many Russian leaders are furious because they believe “western news outlets today are trying to impose that the war was won without us(Russia).” Unfortunately, this comment is correct. Few if any American students are taught that throughout World War II at least 70% of German soldiers were facing Russian troops and that Russia lost over twenty million people while the total of American deaths in Europe was under 300,000. I do understand the Russian concern about distortion of history within American schools.

Russia bore the brunt of the war. But, England was all alone against Nazi German for two years, a period when Russia was supplying the Nazis with goods and services. The war required the cooperation of three major nations. It is true that Russia suffered the most and Russian troops did the major fighting, but there were a few million German soldiers fighting the Americans and British.

Oh, for the record, a majority of soldiers who landed on D-Day were NOT American. We constituted 40% of those who landed. However, after sixty days the majority were American. Such is history.

Bill Maher Rants

Bill Maher is one of my favorite comics but he has a serious problem with those who are in the Muslim religion. Once aging, last night we heard him preach that the Muslim religion is filled with those who hate women, enjoy torture and murder and it is a backward group of people. He is convinced that if one is a Muslim then one believes that murder of those who oppose your religion is a sacred duty. He cites examples from ISIS or Boko Haram and thus concludes there is something peculiar about this religion. Let’s look at the record:

1. In the twentieth century,Christians have sort of led the way in death and brutality. How about the Holocaust in which six million Jews were brutality murdered by CHRISTIAN GERMANY!

2. How about the Pol Pot in Cambodia who slaughtered one million of their fellow Cambodians in a horrific manner?

3. Or, we could cite the Rwanda massacre in which 700,000 were hacked to death by Christians.

4. Then again, I believe suicide bombers in World War II murdered thousands of Americans.

5. Or the suicide bombers in Sri Lanka who sort of began the idea of blowing oneself up.

6. Fascist Catholic Italy murdered untold hundreds of thousands in this century.

7. Gas attacks were started by Christian nations.

8. Air raids which killed hundreds of thousands were begun by Christians.

Sorry Bill, Muslims are just like all religions and contain a lot of bad people!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

There are those who will compromise and those who will not.

Jaw,jaw, never war, war.

Some speak out of both sides of mouth, some never speak.

Whatever happened to Sarah Palin?

There was the Holocaust and there were plans to raise taxes, which was worse?

Is there one thing Barack Obama has done that pleases Fox News?

I do not know what fate awaits me.

Bibi, Foreign Policy Expert?

Members of the Republican party and a lot of Democratic Senators regard Israel Prime Minister as an expert on the Middle East. Here is the record:

1. In 1992, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from having an atomic bomb.

2. In 2002 Bibi insisted that America had to invade Iraq and end the menace of Saddam.

3. In 2003, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from an atomic bomb.

4. When Bibi took over leadership of Israel, its closest ally was Turkey and the IDF and Turkish army units conducted joint exercises. Today, Turkey is furious at Israel due to attacks on its ships and murder of
Turkish citizens.

5. In 2010 Bibi insisted that Iran was close to having an atomic bomb.

6. Bibi believes the solution we should follow is to bomb Iran.

7. Hezbollah in Lebanon has 30,000 missiles which will be sen toward Israel in case of war.

8. The prior three heads of Mossad insist that attacking Iran would be a mistake.

So, why is Bibi an expert??

Rich Gays Attack We Americans!

The ware against we straight folk has no end. Those gay guys who run all the important corporations in America have launched an attack on decent God fearing Americans who want to protect their right to be a God fearing decent law abiding red blooded American citizen. Tim Cook,the you know what sexual orientation head of Apple has lined up a bunch of fags who also run corporations and they are out to destroy the very fabric of our American society. A bunch of these guys or gals, or whatever, have issued an ultimatum to those who believe in a two sex family. They point out: “a lotos companies are very risk averse and want to be on the right side of history. They also know the political views of their customers as users…Any state that enacts legislation that does not specifically protect LBGT persons” will face the wrath of those who run these corporations.

I believe it is time for God fearing Americans to commit suicide, get to Heaven and let the Big Guy up in the sky know what the heck is going on down here. I am certain he will send some thunderbolts to wipe out these evil men and women.

First they demanded that black folk who were contented as hell to get angry.

Then they insisted we had to elect come Catholic who reported to the Vatican as our president.

Then they insisted that women who were happy in the home had to work and leave their children.

What is happening to the America we used to know??

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.

Shoot Black Say Cops!

It has come to my attention there has been a serious failure in communication between top level police officials in Philadelphia and the average policeman. Top brass intended to convey the idea that when police confront a possible criminal they were to hold off shooting and only shoot back. Somehow this got mixed up and police thought they were to shoot BLACKS. It was simply a matter of composition that created this problem. Between 2007 to 2013 there were 364 examples of shootings in the city of Brotherly love. Black skinned folk constitute about 40% of the population, but wound up being shot 80% of the time. There is not doubt if police had not been given the wrong word, these killings would never have occurred.

Of the 364 shooting events 23% of those who confronted police wound up dead. For some strange reason only in 49 of these incidents the bad guy had a weapon. How were police to know that the bad guy had or did not possess a weapon of mass destruction? Damn it, if only the original message had said, “back” rather than “black,” none of these shootings would have happened!

P.S. None of the shootings involved any of those Muslims!
