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

I do not believe that 17 is a lucky number for the Republican party.

Dream Republican ticket-Trump and Carson. White on Black.

A piece of paper flew in the window and landed on the desk of Scott Walker, he signed it.

If General Walker can defeat government secretaries why not ISIS?

I wonder if John McCain has thought of returning to the political battle for president?

According to AIPAC, the black dude hates Jews-that is why he sent Israel over $15 billion!

These days those who oppose anti-Semitism are the anti-Semites.

The Turkish Dilemma

President Recep Erdogan is the Donald Trump of Turkey. He takes umbrage at anyone who dares challenge what he does or says. Challenge his policy and one hates the Muslim religion. Complain about human rights abuses,and one is in league with his enemies. His political party was denied a majority in Parliament which prevented him from changing the Constitution in order to give the President even greater power. His latest anger is directed at The New York Times which printed a picture of him leaving a mosque from which at least 100 men went to join ISIS. How dare he connect the President of Turkey with support of ISIS?

Here is the record. After refusing to launch any air strikes against ISIS, the man of action finally allowed–THREE. Of course, his air force launched over 200 air strikes at Kurdish forces which battle ISIS. To Erdogan the enemy is NOT ISIS, it is any Kurdish armed force seeking rights for Kurds in Turkey.

War Of Words Goes On

It is Wednesday and there must be a story in which the Donald Man says something about some female. If one is the Donald Man, then it is pro forma to take on the greatest evil in America–one Megan Kelly. Donald feels hurt, he feels abused,he does not like anyone, and when he says, anyone, that one means the Kelly girl. She is a Bimbo, she is a woman who dares pose questions he does not wish posed. “I do not think Megyn Kelly is a quality journalist. I think her questions to me, despite all the polls saying I won the debate were very unfair.”

I assumed when one engaged in debate that one expected people to pose questions. THAT is what a debate entails. The central issue is that the Donald Man does NOT respond to questions. He assumes a question is meant to allow him to rant and roar with brilliant one liners. “How will you end the ISIS threat?” Response: “Quickly.”

The irony of this entire episode is that Fox News which has smeared the lives of dozens of its opponents is now angry when their star is smeared.

Texas Death Beat

America remains among the few post industrial nations in which the death penalty is a norm.Of course, within the United States there is one state which leads the pack,and can anyone doubt that piece of territory is known as–TEXAS. The land in which one can carry a gun to church, to eat, to play is the land in which more people are executed than any other. Bernardo Tercero entered a store in order to do a bit of robbing. At this point the story gets murky. Somehow he wound up in a struggle and shot a man.

Mr.Tercero is by most standards an individual of limited natural intelligence. But, this is Texas. And, in Texas when your skin is of the dark hue, what else but death awaits. I can guarantee if he was a white millionaire, the struggle would have led to a sentence, but not one entailing death. Many Hispanics have been urging that he be sent to jail, not to death. The Texas Supreme Court ordered a halt to the execution. But, this is Texas, the land of violence. Just make certain when you blast away, your skin is white.

Putin-L’Etat Is Moi!

Each passing day one is left with the impression that Vladimir Putin is the Donald Trump of Russia. I assume if I brushed a fly off his back, the cops would grab me and hustle my body off to a court, which, by definition, means the prosecutor is expected to win all cases. Last earth Russian navy seized a Greenpeace vessel which contained people protesting oil operations in Arctic regions.The ship flew the Dutch flag, but to Putinites any one entering Mother Russia without permission of you-know-who was an American spy.

Greenpeace took the dispute to the Permanent Court of Arbitration which is located in the Hague. The Court ruled in favor of Greenpeace but the Russian government made clear,”the Russian Federation did not participate in these proceedings” and thus it ruling is not binding in Russia. Where did this body get the idea they had any power in Mother Russia?

These people should be lucky to still be alive!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Russia, Moscow Times: “Ukranian Ducks Confiscated”

These western spies were caught in the act of quaking!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “No Swimming At Beach.”

These days the sharks are everywhere.

USA, Newsday: “I Just Lost Everything”

I invested in our stock market?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Stop Topless Show”

These days going topless might make Republicans interesting.

Israel, Jerusalem Post: “I’m Alive”

Yes, Bibi, and raring for action with bombs on Iran!

Rape In Elite School

Few of we ordinary Americans know much about certain private schools in this nation. St. Paul in New Hampshire is for those nice, clean-cut young boys who will be trained to take over dad’s role as head of this or that big corporation. Their idea of rising from the bottom is to begin at the bottom of the top level. The rest of we mere mortals will devote our lives taking orders from the snotty young clean-cut men. Owen Labrie is one of the students at St.Paul.Each year at the conclusion of their learning experience the young masters engage in what is known as –Senior Salute.

Actually, Senior Salute is an opportunity for young damsels attending the right finishing schools to walk along a path on the arm with our wonderful young men. Ordinarily, the girl is supposed to be so happy to walk with a St.Paul youth that necking, and going a bit further is regarded as the right of passage for our young male heroes. Owen sort of went a bit far and now faces rape charges. According to one of his friends, “I asked him if he had sex with her and he told me he did.” Oh, there was a smirk on his face.

Dark Days Ahead For Bibi

Recent reports from top Israel officials indicate that back in 2010, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ready to launch air attacks on Iran, but was held back by top Israel generals. Goes to show there are Israelis who think like the black dude from Africa. Imagine seeking to resolve issues via diplomacy rather than through bombs! Senator Harry Reid just joined those supporting President Obama and his quest for peace.

Ironically, President Hassan Rouhani in Iran has problems with war hawks, ready to match Bibi bomb to bomb. Rouhani told the people of Iran, “we consider this agreement a stating point for moving forward” toward peace in the region and the world. According to brave warriors such as Ted Cruz of Scott Walker or Marco Rubio, failure to demand bombs is a mark of the coward. As I recall, none of these “brave warriors” has ever served in the US military. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who was attacked for negotiating with Communist dictator Joseph Stalin respond with: “Jaw, Jaw is better than War, War.”

Pope Francis Comments Upset Catholics

I recognize that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and folks like Rudy Giuliani or Rick Santorum are devout Catholics and certainly have a right to be upset these days. What about that stuff regarding “the idolatry of money!” Doesn’t that man know it is the wealthy who create high paying jobs for those working in fast food?? Robert Royal of the Faith and Reason Foundation is real angry at this guy from Italy telling we Americans how to live or think. “I was astonished by some of the things he’s said about public order. He’s the pope least prepared to do public comments in the past 150 years!”

After all, how does he dare to comment when prior popes like Pope Pius XII were willing to negotiate with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. Then again, he knew enough to keep his mouth shut during the Holocaust. Now, there was a real pope who opposed abortion, adultery, gays,that is those gay of the sexual persuasion. The Catholic church has lost contact with many secular Catholics and silence Pope Francis, and there wille even more silence on Sundays in Church.

Gunman Who Could Not Shoot Straight

The recent episode in which two young Americans thwarted a terrorist on a speeding train in France has created all sorts of confusion. Was this man a terrorist out to murder the innocent? The young man,Ayoub el Khazanni insists that he was merely a Jesse James who wanted to steal from the rich and give to the poor. He is “dumbfounded” that anyone could take him for anything other than a modern Jesse out to rob the train.

This does raise issues as to how does society define a genuine 100% criminal who simply seeks a few bucks from those who have the dough? If anyone who robs trains is a terrorist this means the James gang and the other Western gangs must now be re-evaluated.
