Americans Believe Republicans Fight Terrorism!

Among the most incompetent of President Obama’s failures in leadership is his inability to make clear the origin of groups like ISIS. Perhaps, he might speak about the following:

1. In 2001, al-Qaeda consisted of about 5,000 followers. Today, in the thousands.

2. In 2001, Iran had two powerful enemies on its borders-Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to President Bush, enemies of Iran were destroyed.

3. It was the war in Iraq which created terrorist groups. This was the legacy left to the next president.

4. It was President Bush who arranged for American troops to leave Iraq in 2011.

The Bush blunders created havoc and chaos in the Middle East. NO president could have eradicated what was the Bush legacy unless he simply packed up our troops and left!

REPUBLICANS CREATED THE CURRENT CHAOTIC SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST!!

Economics 101 In Middle East

President Obama is organizing a coalition of death and destruction which will blast bad terrorists to bits. Planes and missiles from the US, France, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and a few other Arab states have sent planes, drones, and missiles hurtling toward ISIS positions in Iraq and Syria. I assume this assault actually killed some of the bad guys. But, the entire premise of the Obama Doctrine is that the best way to solve problems in the Middle East is to blast away. How about a reality check:

1. The unemployment rate in most Middle Eastern countries(aside from Israel) hovers about 35% at a minimum.

2. This means that millions of young men and women have no jobs, no income,and live by part time work or aid from parents.

3. This means there are hundreds of young boys willing to blast themselves to pieces since life offers no economic solutions.

4. This means angry imams can rouse anger within young people who have nothing in life and offer them something in the after life.

There is need for an ECONOMIC PLAN that provides jobs and meaningful lives to the young people of the Middle East. How about engaging them in work rather than become engaged in death? Where is the Obama Doctrine of Economic Development??

Terrorist Group Of The Week

Growing up there were several ice cream chains that advertised a “flavor of the week.” These days it is now common for the American government to advertise a terrorist group of the week. For years all we heard was that al-Qaeda was plotting further attacks upon the United States and we had to be prepared for an eventual assault. Well, the years went by, a decade went by, and no al-Qaeda attack. For the past few months the new terror group is ISIS which, allegedly, poses a threat to the very existence of the United States of America. I continually hear on television from those who are experts in terrorism that ISIS is right at this moment preparing an attack on America that will result in widespread destruction and the death of millions. Exactly how 31,000 guys who wear dark masks over their faces are going to descend upon Americans and run wild through our streets wrecking havoc and mayhem is a tale yet to be told.

Oops, the American government just announced the new terror group of the week. Its name is Knorasan, and it is composed of Muslim terrorists who had fought in Afghanistan and Pakistan. This group, whose numbers range from about fifty to a few thousand is preparing special explosives which will blast planes from the sky. How about?

1. Draw upon the Israel method of checking passengers. Their approach has worked for nearly forty years. Try it out.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You’d Better Believe It”

Reducing taxes results in less money for government, not more!

France, Connexion: “Shocking French Video

A French President NOT making love to a woman!

USA, Washington Post: “Why Is John McCain Always on CNN?”

He is THE expert on who should lead America, after all, he identified Sarah Palin!

Sweden, Local: “Donald Duck Gets Votes”

He may quack, but he is not a quack politician!

South Africa: “Life After Oscar Pistorious”

At least we will not hear gun shots.

Another Intruder On White House Grounds

After consulting with leading Republicans in Washington I can now report they have gathered sufficient evidence in order to impeach President Barack Obama. Omar J. Gonzalez, a former member of the US armed forces was arrested by the Secret Service for leaping over the fence surrounding the White House and heading for the front door. House Speaker John Boehner is very upset that American citizens are not allowed to enter the White House without being subjected to violence. Mr. Gonzalez is NOT an illegal immigrant, he is a former sergeant in the Army and has every right as a citizen in this nation to carry around 80-0 rounds of ammunition for his legal weapons of war. The President allowed this citizen of America to be brutally assaulted just because he was carrying a machete and two hatchets. Show me in the Constitution where it says I can’t carry machetes of hatchets? I dare you, or the President to show me why I cannot carry rounds of ammo. Just check the 2nd Amendment!

This man who simply was exercising his 2nd Amendment rights if now under arrest. First they came for Omar Gonzalez, then they came for a guy who is now in the forests of Pennsylvania because some cop got in the way of one of his bullets. This is part of the Obama plot to arrest those who stand for freedom of killing bad people,and we all know who is the number one bad guy in this nation! Just check with the NRFA!

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 is always a third choice in life.

Muy elderly ears only hear fragments of words, good or bad news?

Some walk with fatigue.

Some carry unseen burdens of past.

I wonder if there is money in heaven.

Some are naturally curious.

Curiosity did not kill the cat, lack of it did.

Some remember what they should not.

Some are resentful, some are resourceful.

Some stride with hope.

Some seek Death, some Life.

Kansas Is Not A Happy Place

The ongoing mantra of the Republican Party is that reducing taxes on the wealthy, reducing government expenditures results in a fantastic economic boom and an incredible rise in good paying jobs for all Americans. Governor Sam Brownback in the great state of Kansas has experimented with those supposedly sound economic concepts. The result is a growing state debt that has risen to over one billion dollars, declining government services for people, and -believe it or not– declining jobs for people! The great Brownback “experiment in economics”has failed. Moddy’s has dramatically reduced the credit rating of the state of Kansas because even economists do not believe the concept that reducing income results in more money and more jobs.

Just about every Republican running for a state office is currently trailing his Democratic rival. Every poll indicates that people in Kansas do not believe they are enjoying good times. They are worried sick about a declining economy, lack of money for schools, lack of money for those seeking health care, and lack of trust in the great Brownback “economic experiment.” Just imagine if Mitt Romney had become President and tried out this economic theory upon the American people?

Mother Russia Not So Happy

The people of Russia have slumbered for years while Vladimir Putin extends his power. His adventures in Ukraine have resulted in death for dozens of Russian soldiers and his defiance of sanctions by the United States, the European Union and nations like Japan caused the Russian economy to suffer. US and European technology is essential for tracking and exploration of Arctic areas for oil, but sanctions caused this material to become unavailable for Russia. Blackwater Group LP, a financial institution, announced it was pulling our of Russia due to declining economic opportunities. Oil production has declined about 20% for the Russian economy. Putin’s belief he can simply approach China for economic assistance is not working because that country lacks skilled people to work in extracting oil from frozen regions of the world. There is a growing scarcity of goods in Russia even while Putin declares he will continue fighting for the “rights” of Ukranians.

There was an amazing sight in Moscow this weekend. Tens of thousands marched to protest Putin’s Ukraine policies. Tens of thousands were shouting, “No To War” or “Putin Stop Lying.” For the first time in years Vladimir Putin was not being hailed as a great man. Hopefully, these demonstrations will continue, and the “great leader” will finally come to his senses.

Democrats On Offense

Democratic candidates are plunging into the fight against conservatism by returning to the good old days of liberalism. Instead of retreating from the Affordable Care Act, they are defending the law that caused so much grief after its disastrous debut last fall. From North Carolina to Colorado, Democratic candidates for the US Senate are making clear that a vote for Republicans is a vote to support the concept that in America, we believe those who have a lot deserve to get even more while those without should be grateful the boss care so much about them they are willing to pay $7.25 cents a hour. This attitude has been lacking since the arrival of Barack Obama to the presidency. He entered office when the economy had collapsed, and proceeded to assist banks and Wall Street unemployed folk while those who had lost homes or jobs were left unattended.

PBS is currently showing the story of Franklin Roosevelt, a man born to wealth who fought for the rights of those without. Unfortunately, Obama has lacked a sense of history from day one of assuming the office of President. Unlike FDR who made clear, “I welcome the hatred of wealthy men” he has surrounded himself with men and women who are mainly concerned about the safety of wealthy men. Hopefully, if Democratic candidates this fall can win by fighting for those without, a new message will emerge for the Democratic Party. Return to the glory days of Franklin Roosevelt!

Let’s Play Football

It is Sunday in America and in stadiums throughout the land men and women will be watching the physical assaults by men against other men. In the good old days, this was a day when people had fun. Alas, today, men will not be playing on the field due to their playing with fists against girl friends, wives, and their children. The National Football League has suddenly become aware that within their midst are men who enjoy playing with fists against family members and that is not permitted. Of course, this has been going on since the first football game was played a hundred years ago. There is nothing new to violence in America.

I wonder what would happen if every business in America suspended employees who employ violence against their loved ones. After all, this is America, a land in which everyone is permitted to possess a gun. I assume those with guns fire them. We educate our youth that it is OK to fire weapons of destruction and then are shocked when they use fists instead of guns. What would this land be if no one, except police, used weapons of violence?
