Bring On The Pagtans!

Gaze around the world. Can you locate a single area in which war and death is not the major industry? Heck, gaze around the so-called Judaic/Christian United States of
America, and what do you osbserve? Nearly half the population which lives in the 21st centtury actually believes the world is only 10,000 years old! Most Americans believe in this or that God which results in 5% of the people who control 42% of the wealth. Imagine believing that yur “God” supports the idea of depriving people of health care or accepting that most people lack the means for a decent life for themselves or children. Heck, a few thousand children seek to enter the country, most would live with relatives and most Americans go wild with fear! CHILDREN ARE THE PROLEM? No, claim these nut cases, there is no problem when people wander around with guns and assault rifles, but when kids simply desire to live with their relatives, then the entire socie5y is under threat!!

It is time to accept the reality that our GOD is simply not doing a very acceptable job. Perhaps, it is time to give Paganism a shot at running this world. Or, if you don’t want a Pagan society, how about one based upon atheism?? Let me put it this way, anything, anyone, any belief, could not do a worse job of creating a society in which love, peace and economic equality were the norm. Please do not get me wrong. I have always liked our God. However, I think God needs another shot at creating a society of life forms which prefer love and joy over murder and mayhem. I hear tell there is a nice pleasant planet a few hundred million miles away and it really could use a God!

What Can Australia Do About Putin?

President Obama is engaged in various actions directed at Russia and its leader, the noble Vladimir Putin, but I began to wonder as to what can nations that were directly involved in the crash of one of those Malaysian airlines in Ukraine do about the death of its citizens? After all, 38 Australians died on that plane and their families are suffering from the deaths of loved ones. So, what exactly can their government do to punish the man responsible for death of family members?

1. Australia could refuse to allow Putin to land in Brisbane, and be able to attend the G20 meeting next month.

2. Of course, if Australia bans the Putin man, he will complain and make threats to everyone in sight.

3. Australia could identify Vladimir Putin as a criminal and ask Interpol to arrest this guy.

4. Australians could send millions of letters to Russia addressed to Putin and louse up the Russian postal system.

5. Australians could draw funny faces about this man, and place them on his Facebook account.

6. Australians could launch a massive email campaign against Putin.

Think about it this way, if Australians did the above, they would be doing more than the European Union has–or will do!

Goodbye Neanderthals, Hello Cro-Magnons!

Fighting in Gaza continues. The Israel Defense Force(IDF) is blasting away at the only power plant in Gaza. Planes are targeting homes of Hamas leaders so if one has the misfortune to be related to anyone in the Hamas high command, rest assured when they return home tonight to their home,it will be a pile of rubble. Hamas insists on using concrete, which could build homes or businesses, for the purpose of constructing tunnels through which dedicated men will run in hope of coming out the other side to find an Israeli who could be killed or kidnapped. Most probably the number of dead in Gaza will rise to 1100, and then to 1200, and who knows the end total. After all, the innocent who die are simply, “collateral damage.”

There are times when I wonder about our Neanderthal predecessors. I wonder if they engaged in war, I wonder if they took joy in slaughtering the innocent. It increasingly becomes clear to me that Neanderthals simply could not grasp the mental outlook possessed by these weird Cro-Magnons. I suspect Neanderthals simply were only interested in killing animals in order to eat. They never got into the idea that a Neanderthal would experience joy and wonder by murdering other Neanderthals. Imagine encountering beings who looked somewhat like them, and these beings believed devotedly in the concept that life was only worth living if one could murder other life forms?

So, fighting will continue in Gaza. People will die. At some point, the fighting will experience a -PAUSE. In reality, throughout the human Cro-Magnon experience it has always been a -PAUSE- before the killing resumes and life gets back to being normal. Reality? The killing will NEVER end. It just goes on and on. We Cro-Magnons wiped out the Neanderthals. If things go according to form, we Cro-Magnons will eventually wipe out all the Cro-Magnons and leave this planet to–???

Another Pakistan Riot, More Dead People

Among the ideas that I have learned during my 83 years on this planet is that each and every religion, at some point, is ready to kill in the name of their founder, who undoubtedly urged the end of murder. I guess it was the weekend and folks in Gujranwala, Pakistan had nothing else to do after spending their time in prayer, so they decided to engage in a riot. Frankly, at this point in time, folks in Pakistan will riot over anything. Heck, a teen girl allowed her knee to show, let’s have a riot. A boy and a girl fall in love, but, alas, they belong to the wrong clans, let’s riot and kill them. Someone on Facebook posted the picture of the Kaaba, the Grand Mosque in Mecca, but along with this picture there were photos of nude folk. Naturally, this requires a riot.

The grandmother and her two granddaughters were members of the minority Ahmadi sect. If you want to live in Pakistan, please do not belong to any minority sect. To belong to the wrong sect means you desire to reach Heaven right now. Ghulam Ahmed, who lived in the 20th century preached for the equal distribution of wealth, and opposed interests of the wealthy.

I have an unconfirmed report that Tea Party gun men are flying to Pakistan to fight for the rights of those with wealth,k after all, they are the job creators!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press.

Indonesia, Jakarta Post: “Prayer Cloaks In High Demand”

I have a hunch this is in Gaza!

UK, Guardian: “And, So It Goes”

If in the US Congress, the end of this is: “nowhere!”

Canada, Toronto Post: “Right To Be Forgotten”"

This sums up children from Central America seeking safety from murderers.

US, NY Post: “Amputate Penis By Mistake”

This story gives me a rise!

China, China Daily: “High Speed Train Breaks Down”

I assume this train is now known as a Slow Speed Train?

Australia, Canberra Times: “Cheap Viagra Good For Men”

Now, if we could find some cheap young gorgeous women!

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Size Isn’t Everything”

Ah, my constant excuse when engaged in sex!

Guns Of August-Are They Upon Us?

it was exactly one hundred years ago today, that millions of soldiers from France, Germany, Austria-Hungary and England were heading toward borders in order to prevent THE ENEMY from invading their lands. It was a hundred years ago today, that the sound of war was growing louder and louder. Each nation was prepared to fight. Why? The prior month in the city of Sarajevo in the southern region of Austria Hungary, the son of the Emperor was shot by a man bent on seeking the rights of oppressed people. This set in motion a series of events that wound up causing the deaths of twenty million. At the beginning of this tragedy not a single European nation was seeking war, by the end of this tragedy, most were bent on war. Not a single European nation thought the assassination would result in anything other than a bit of anger. By the end of this sequence in which none wanted war most were ready for war.

World War I occurred at a moment in time when Europeans had enjoy one hundred years of virtual peace. Since 1815, there had only been two or three minor wars on the continent. Most leaders thought that peace could be maintained. But, in 1914, they all got trapped in a process in which a minor incident became increasingly a major event. There simply was no process to halt the march toward war. It just proceeded.

There is no question that President Vladimir Putin lacks a sense of stability. He rules over a Russia which lacks a legislature to reign him in or a media that could rip him to pieces. He has become accustomed to doing as he desires without any interference. A normal leader, after the shooting down of a civilian plane, would hesitate, not Putin. He simply does what he wishes to do. So, what can be done before the Guns of August again blast away?

1. There is need for an immediate meeting between Russia, Germany, France, England and the US. Leaders of these nations must meet together and discuss what happened in August, 1914. All must pledge the Guns of August must never fire again.

2. Leaders of Germany, France, England and the US must convey to Putin that even if he invaded Ukraine, they would not respond with military forces. However, they would immediately ban any financial transactions with Russia, ban Russian products from their lands as well as forbid the entry of any Russian. He would be allowed to seize Ukraine, but Russia would become an economically isolated nation.

America Needs A Healer

As one reviews the history of American presidents over the past fifty years it is apparent that not a single one was able to create a sense of leadership that encompassed those of differing views and beliefs. The polarization of Americans into separate groups, each committed to firm beliefs has grown and grown. Our society lacks the sense that only a leader could convey that those who seek a different America also have a place within America. The last American leader who offered that sense of a society bound together seeking a new America was Robert Kennedy. He died on the road to becoming president because another of those fun nuts was angry and decided to end a life. After all, as the National Rifle Association argues, one has the Constitutional right to kill, if one believes his rights are threatened.

On the night when Martin Luther King was murdered, Robert Kennedy was in Indianapolis. He spoke calm words to those who were Negroes, he spoke of the pain that he, as a white man had suffered, when a white man murdered his brother. He then walked the streets of Indianapolis offering words of calm to angry Negroes. Robert Kennedy was just as comfortable in a group of white conservative workers as he was with liberals. His words were always about the importance of recognizing that to be an American was to be concerned about ALL Americans. Neither Bush nor Obama has ever been able to convey that feeling. For Robert Kennedy, the plight of those who were poor or disadvantaged was primary to the American dream. He often took the side that was being oppressed, regardless of political consequences. And, thus he died with his dream of a united caring America.

I was struck at lack of presence of President Obama at the border to hug and welcome children seeking refuge. Yes, such a sight would be terrible politics, but such a sight would be what a leader of
America must convey.

Extremists Rule In Israel And Gaza

To those who seek peace in the Middle East, the current madness of death and destruction has resulted in the end of words. Frankly, there is nothing more to say about either side in this conflict. Hamas shouts words of hate and unreason demanding the world recognize it as the voice of Palestinians. Israel insists the world is filled with anti-Semites seeking the complete destruction of a Jewish state. President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority has lost any power as well as respect from Palestinians who blame him for the slaughter now proceeding in Gaza. UNRWA Commissioner General Pierre Krahenbuhl has reached the point of utter desperation in dealing with either Hamas or the IDF. “The scenes of carnage and human suffering that we witnessed at our elementary school in Beit Hanon were so appalling and intolerable that it is difficult to find the words to convey my indignation.”

He pointed out that rockets were discovered in schools, left by courtesy of Hamas. He contacted the IDF and asked for a pause in action-”approval for that never came.” Hamas places troops in locations where there are civilians in order to ensure civilians die. The IDF is determined to wipe out all tunnels, and insists civilians are told to leave. Pray tell, leave and go where?? Does anyone doubt that a new generation of suicide bombers are being born in this madness?

An Israeli woman tried to read the names in Hebrew of children who died in Gaza. The Israel Broadcasting Authority banned her reading of names and ages. It was defined as “politically controversial.”

A year from now or two years from now, suicide bombers will kill Israelis. THAT is politically controversial. In the end, suffer the children for crimes of adults!

ABC Of Republican End Of Poverty Program

I do understand there are those who believe in some liberal authoritarian idea that providing high paying jobs to workers might result in the end of poverty. In 1965, the average member of the United Automobile Workers(UAW) earned the equivalent of about $70 an hour in 2014 terms. No, automobile workers did NOT need Food Stamps. They earned the equivalent of about $100,000 today and thus could purchase a home, send their kids through college, and enjoy a decent middle class life. I was so over joyed to read that Congressman Paul Ryan understands how we can return to those good old days of middle class life.

Paul Ryan explained the ABc of current poverty.

1. “We basically have a poverty management system from the Federal government, a safety net program that is not getting people out of poverty.

2. “Poverty is a complicated program that needs to be customized.”

3. The solution to ending poverty is to turn poor people over to “trained state benefits officers” who will teach them how to take the “path up” out of poverty.

In other words, if one seeks to end poverty that individual can secure an upward bound program at McDonald’s that pays $7.25 an hour. In other words, this individual could earn $1200 a month, and almost $14,000 a year. Wow! I hate to inform Paul but that is BELOW the level that is identified as being “poor.” Gee, Paul, how about living for a year on $14,000 a year?

Or, we could return to the days when business leaders believed if they paid good wages to workers, then they, in effect, were creating consumers who would purchase their goods.

Ah Benghazi, We Knew You Well

I spent several hours talking with a member of the Republican party who wanted to make certain this blog was telling the truth about events in Libya. As any informed person knows, the present lack of stability in Libya is the result of failure on the part of HILLARY CLINTON! This past weekend while Hillary was off raising money, diplomats from Germany, England France and the United States had to flee for their lives from Islamic militants seeking their deaths. There is fighting between those seeking to create a secular government in Libya, who are led by General Khalia Hiftar, and al-Qaeda which seeks to impose a traditional sharia law upon one and all.

Naturally, Fox News blames Hillary Clinton. If only she had personally flown to Benghazi and grabbed a weapon, and blasted away at militants our ambassador would still be alive, and militants would have surrendered to the awesome woman on top of the wall! If only Hillary would halt her fund raising tours, get in a jet plane, fly to Libya, and blast away at militants! As one English diplomat said: “today, the priority is getting out.”

I wonder if Senator John McCain could jump into a jet plane and fly to Libya where he could, single-handedly, end the civil war!
