Decline Of Democracy In Russia

My father was born and raised in the world of Czarist Russia that was ruled by an emperor. After the czar was sent to his death, the people of Russia then endured seventy five years of brutal dictatorship under Communists. It is estimated that Communist rulers murdered at least ten million RUSSIANS in their gulags. One would expect that after this horror of death, the people of Russia would seek to inhabit a world in which democracy was the norm. Instead, most Russians support the policies of President Vladimir Putin whose goal is to enforce a dictatorship that either kills or sends to jail anyone who dares to oppose this regime. Boris Nemstov fought for democracy and organized mass demonstrations against Putin. Yesterday he was walking across a bridge in Moscow when suddenly a group of assassins blasted him with six shots. He is now dead. Oh, according to the Putin government the cause of this death was: people seeking to destabilize Russia by seeking to blame problems on Putin, or, Muslim terrorists. Who else?

Latest figures reveal that 68% of people in Russia support Vladimir Putin while only 15% oppose him. There is sad news that Nemstov is dead. There is every worse news that most Russians don’t give a damn. After all, Putin has gotten back the Crimea and caused death and destruction in Ukraine.

Weep for the people of Russia who seek dictatorship over democracy.

Bibi Joins Fellow Republicans To Save World!

I assume this week anyone who cares about Israel or the United States of America will be glued to their iPads or television sets in order to see still another Republican inform the world how to get peace in t he world. Bibi Netanyahu is here to further the work of his dad in the cause of ensuring that Republicans once again govern the nation. His father was a professor here in America who also doubled as a fervent Republican. The Israel Ambassador to the United States of America used to double as a paid Republican worker. Anyway, Bibi is here to expose American government attempts to avoid a calamity in the Middle East. Bibi will inform cheering Republicans that the only road to peace in the Middle East is to bomb the hell out of Iran. After all, Bibi is an expert on peace in the Middle East. Since becoming prime minister of Israel:

1. The former close ties between Israel and Turkey have ceased after fifty years of close cooperation.

2. Jordan used to support Israel in many situations and now has ended this support.

3. There is not a single European nation that supports the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu.

So, Americans, cheer Bibi and perhaps we can end any and all good relations with nations in this world.

Scott Walker At Battle Of Madison, Wisconsin

Every so often I feel the need to apologize to those whom I have offended with my angry words of criticism. I now humbly apologize to the governor of the great state of Wisconsin for failing to recognize his accomplishments in the war against terrorism. There is no doubt that Scott Walker stands alone among American governors in his gallant stand against the hordes of terrorists who assaulted the capitol of Madison a few years ago. Some are confronted by black hooded terrorists carrying weapons of mass destruction, but Scott single handedly met the enemy and wiped them out. It was just a few years ago when government offices were viciously attacked by social workers, teachers, psychologists, and cops demanding the right to form unions. As Scott recounts the fight, the capitol grew so packed with human bodies, the smell of their bodies hit you as soon as you entered the building. It was over powering.”

After winning this great battle, Scott now believes, “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world.”

Caution to ISIS, from now on before engaging in battle with Scott, take a shower and rub the soap in deeply.

Why Do Republicans Pose As Heroes?

I find most intriguing how so many Republican leaders have never been to war although they pose as heroes from battles they waged. Examine the record:

1. Dick Cheney got several draft deferments during the Vietnam war because he had “more important things to do.”

2. George Bush spent the Vietnam war at home in the National Guard.

3. Scott Walker never entered the armed force.

4. Rudy Giuliani fought the battle of New York City surrounded by a dozen cops and somehow saved the city.

5. Sarah Palin compares firing a weapon at undefended animals as equivalent to being in battle against armed soldiers.

6. Rick Perry compares the battle of the Rio Grande against Hispanic children as a “war.”

These are heroes who saved America.

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

Always posses a child’s sense of wonder.

Some walk through life with a smile on face.

To be born with a work ethic is to be born blessed.

Children openly explore life, seniors just want to live.

Be a gardner of love.

I wonder if God runs a life lottery.

Some are hustlers of life and want to win the life lottery.

Another Missouri Day

I spent forty years of my life working in the state of Missouri and many days were in rural areas of the state where I taught teachers. If there is one place I know well, it is southern Missouri where segregation was still around up into the 1970s. In places like Flat River, if your skin was black make certain it was not being shown after sundown, at least not in the town of Flat River. One day I was a visiting Jew in a school in Doniphan, I can guarantee they have never seen a Muslim. So, I was not surprised to read about a man in southern Missouri who shot to death eight people and then rid the world of his body. Guns are to southern folk in Missouri what money is to the rest of us. They so love the gun.

Of course, there are more murders in St. Louis, Missouri with its population of about 250,000 than in most major metropolitan areas of this nation. I have no idea why this man killed eight people. I also have an idea that such murders will occur again and again in this state which prefers living in the nineteenth century when blacks knew their place and Jews never ventured into these areas. They love guns, they love death as long as they can retain the right to hold a gun anywhere they desire.

Fighting Scott Walker Takes On ISIS

Scott Walker is governor of the state of Wisconsin and he among the bravest men in this fair land. He took on the terrorist unions such as those representing police, firefighters and other government employees and he defeated them. “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can so the same across the world.” He is one American who is not afraid of ISIS, he is one American who is ready to stand up and confront any terrorist in the world. I have received, still unconfirmed reports, that ISIS leaders are meeting in order to discuss the threat posed by Scott Walker. Some are preparing to offer terms of surrender before this man comes at them with pen in hand to wipe them off the face of this planet!

Scott is against “special interests” such as unions that serve the interests of police and firemen. He wants to fight in order to protect the interests of “taxpayers.” I trust you know that government employees are not taxpayers. I wonder if Scott is so determined to rid the country of “special interests” will he take on Wall Street. OOPs, sorry, there are no special interests on Wall Street, just wonderful Americans who devote their days creating $7.25 per hour jobs.

Fight For Wealthy Equality!

I am sick and tired of all this talk about the needs of poor people. How often do you encounter an article or TV show that depicts the plight of our top one percent of wealthy people. To be more accurate,w hat about the plight of the 99% of the top 1% of those with large incomes? Do you realize that the top 1% of the top 1% of those with incomes in this land are falling behind the top 1% of the top of wealthy folks. WE need an affirmative action plan to aid the 99% of those in the top 1% of income. Each year they fall further behind the top 1% of the top 1% in income. Do you realize their yachts are half the size of the top 1% of the top 1%? It is time for Congress to recognize the plight of the 99% of the top 1% with money!

I know that not only does President Obama hate America, he also hates the minority who constitute 99% of the top 1% with money. Have you ever heard a single word out of his mouth concerning their plight in being left behind? He hates wealthy people because most of them are white!

Raise income for the 99% of the top 1% and it will result in high paying jobs for all Americans!

On Multiculturalism

There are days when I wonder if somehow or in some way I failed to recognize my bigotry in modern America. Actually, the expression “pluralism” was coined in a New Republic magazine in 1916 in an effort to recognize America in this era. At that point in time, 25% of Americans were either immigrants or children of immigrants, today the figure is about 8%. The issue of creating a society in which people of varying religions, colors and ethnic heritages has long been at the center of how to recognize differences while creating a sense of unity. I laugh when Americans today worry about Hispanic children in schools who come from parents who do not speak English. In my immigrant neighborhood, the merchants like my pop who had a butcher store spoke Yiddish, not English to their customers. Multiply by a factor of ten if you seek to compare the issue of multiculturalism in 1914 with that of today.

So, what happened to we children of immigrants? We joined the army and helped win World War II. We joined the Army and fought in Korea. We got jobs, we invented things, we help create new industries like television and we wound up living in neighborhoods with those who in our childhood were the enemy. Fight to ensure equality for all, but every so often take a deep breath and recognize that times have changed, are changing and will continue to change. The United States of America, for all its failures to aid those at the bottom and those seeking equality HAS made a few strides. Again, what has changed is simply not enough.

Thoughts On Life In Boehnerland

The American people have now enjoyed about two months under the rule of Republicans in Congress. Based on this experience it is now clear:

1. The hordes of ISIS pose greater danger to our nation than the hordes of Latin American kids.

2. Money speaks twenty four hours a day and seven days a week and 12 months in the year.

3. If the choice is either getting rid of some Mexican person or an ISIS person, you know the answer.

4. Just do the opposite of whatever Obama says or does and Sheldon Adelson will reward you very well.

5. Defend Israel over America is the new slogan of Republicans. Let me alter that remark, defend Bibi Netanyahu and screw Israel is the important thing in life.

6. The Republican controlled Senate has failed America.

7. Jeb wants to get elected and if he has to insult George, so what?

8. I am beginning to miss Rick Perry and his words of wisdom.

9. Gridlock is the norm these days for government.
