Plight Of Rohingya

I realize there are few Americans who give a damn about the Muslim Rohingya who live in the Buddhist nation of Myanmar and are subject to brutality and oppression. Sheldon Adelson is willing to give millions to any politician whose only concern is about Israel, but, unfortunately, there is no Muslim billionaire in America who is willing to give millions to our politicians if they would provide assistance to people who are being brutalized, raped and killed by the religious folk known as Buddhists. Thousands of Rohingya have fled in ships to Muslim nations such as Indonesia or Malaysia only to be told-“get the hell out of our waters and go back to death in Myanmar.” Some are demanding that the Association of Southeastern Nations (ASEAN) should expel Myanmar whose behavior is horrendous. A Muslim leader, Nasruddin, has posed some questions: “Where are the ASEAN nations? Why are they silent?”

Good questions. If Israel did something evil, then Muslim nations are shouting war and violence. If a Buddhist nation does something evil to Muslims, we only hear the silence of indifference.

Ramadi, Ramadi Has Fallen

The city of Ramadi has fallen to the nut cases of ISIS because the United States does not wish to cooperate with Iranian leaders in dealing with real problems facing Iraq. The US insists that any group in Iraq which has ties to Iran can not take part in the fight against ISIS. Here is the reality:

1. 30% of Iraq is composed of Sunnis.

2. Iran “advisors” are working with Shiite groups to defeat ISIS.

3. The only way to defeat ISIS is by combining Sunni and Shiite forces.

4. President Obama, the issue right now is ISIS, it is not Iran influencing the government of Iraq.

5. Reality is that President Bush defeated the Sunni leaders of Iraq and turned the government over to Shiite leaders who look to Iran.

Face up to reality. Sunni military forces must be used and they must be led by Sunni officers. If we want to defeat ISIS then bring together all those who oppose this murderous force.

During World War II, the anti-Communist Prime Minister Winston Churchill, upon hearing that Germany had invaded the Soviet Union, offered aid to the Russians. “I will shake hands with the Devil himself if it means saving England.” President Obama might learn from Winston Churchill.

No Indian Whoops Of Joy

The politically correct folk in the United States of America are really obsessed with the issue of what to call those whose ancestors were living in this country before the arrival of Europeans. I am told that employing the term, “Indian” is not correct and those people should be called, “Native Americans.” The word, “American” comes from Amerigo Vespucci, an Italian explorer who never stepped foot in what we term the United States of America. So, why the hell should I call someone whose ancestors were Cherokee or Iroquois after some Italian?? Anyway, these days, the politically correct cops are on the lookout for any manifestation of insult to Native Americans. Ms. Loretta Sanchez is seeking the nomination for US Senator from the state of California and she let out an Indian whoop on her cell phone that somehow was heard across the state of California.

Frankly, I don’t give a damn if someone whoops for joy or just shouts “Geronimo” while departing a plane as US paratroopers shouted during World War II. Sanchez now stands accused of insulting all those who are either Indians or Native Americans or whatever.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

It is Monday, someone got shot in Texas, so what is new?

I await a day that does not begin with news of another person deciding to run for the Republican nomination for president.

American politics has shifted from comedy to farce.

I wonder if there was ever a day in the history of this planet when some life form did not die due to violence?

Some are born to die, some to live.

I have a hunch that Jesus just won’t return until guaranteed he will not be shot.

How about resurrecting the body of Ronald Reagan and having it run for president?

Confusion In Israel

The only thing certain about Israel is the failure within the nation to create a government that represents both domestic and foreign policies that will bring prosperity and peace to the people of the nation. Most observers have lost track as to the number of “ministers with portfolios” who currently constituted the Cabinet of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In order to forge a government, Bibi has given “government portfolios” to just about every group in order to get the 61 seats necessary to form a “majority government.” There are Cabinet officials who seek to focus on restoring economic sense, there are Cabinet ministers whose main goal is protecting the rights of religious Jews not to serve in the army and to receive government benefits in order to “study the Torah.”

There is no coherent foreign policy that would center upon working in a cooperative manner with the Obama administration. Instead, the goal of Netanyahu is to work with Republican congressmen in order to have them take over foreign policy in America. What could Netanyahu do?

1. Work with the Zionist Union led by Isaac Herzog and form a government that would work for peace with Palestinians and end the control of religious fanatics in Israel. There is no difference between a Muslim clergy and a Jewish clergy when it comes to focusing upon uniting a nation by including those who do not believe clergy should be in government.

2. How about apologizing to President Obama and appointing an ambassador who is not the buddy of Republicans in Congress?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I think Jeb bush should divorce his brother if he wants to win an election.

I do not believe a single Republican candidate ever served in the armed forces, but they sure want to be a general.

Always take a deep breath before sending someone off to die.

I have mixed feelings about the death penalty.

There sure is a heck of water on this planet but God sure made a boo boo in making so little of it drinkable.

I never did see the reason to have a beautiful lawn, then again, I was raised on the streets of New York.

I doubt that God would take a vacation on this planet.

Bushes In Your Life

Wee are now entering thirty years of Bush folks somewhere near or around the White House. So, to understand the Bush clan:

1. A Bush holding your hand means the other one might hold a knife.

2. Together the Bush dynasty has led to three wars for America.

3. I believe the behavior of the Bush clan is bush league.

4. When a Bush lights a fire it can become a firefight.

5. Few Bushes grow up to be giant trees in the forest.

6. Plant a bush on your lawn and it will transform into a fungus that devours your sons and daughters.

I believe it is time to replace our bushes with flowering plants of beauty.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Canada, Toronto Star: “Sex Ed Protests”

For hands-on education, I hope.

UK, Guardian: “Moronic Immigration”

I guess seeking food is a form of being a moron.

France, Connexion: “17 Rare Monkeys Stolen”

Don’t worry, you can readily find them in the US Congress.

Sweden, Local: “Missing Girl Found”

I guess she is now not missing.

Norway, Norway Post: “Love Hotel”‘

No Republicans allowed in

ONLY IN REPUBLICAN AMERICA

I continually encounter young people who inform me that “politicians are all crooks so who needs to vote for one crook over another.” Actually, not all politicians are crooks, although politicians in modern America are controlled by the needs of money. Three days ago a horrible tragedy made clear why young people should vote and vote for politicians who, at least, are concerned about the welfare of this nation. The Amtrack tragedy outside of Philadelphia is a vivid example of what is happening in this country due to the crazy ideas of Republicans in Congress. Two days after eight people died in a train wreck and dozens were injured the Republican controlled House Appropriations Committee voted to REDUCE EXPENDITURES FOR AMTRACK BY ONW BILLION DOLLARS!!

There is a piece of technology that currently is found in most civilized societies that have trains. It is called: Positive Train Control. Had this technology been used on Amtrack train lines, the tragedy would have been avoided. Roger Ford, of the UK Modern Railway magazine, summed up the situation in America: “When it comes to signaling technology, the Americans are primitive.” Such is the fruit of electing nut cases to Congress whose only goal is to reduce taxes on the wealthy. For the rest of Americans, go to hell– or to Heaven!

It’s Only Water

I gather there is some minor problem in the state of California about lack of water. People are being ordered not to water their lawns and to be extra careful about how they use water during the day. Tim Brown is CEO of the Nestle company which sells water in bottles. You know, this company takes water from rivers, places the water in bottles, and then sells people the water they could easily drink by going to the rivers. Anyway, Tim wants the people of California to know that his company will “absolutely not stop bottling water in California, and would like to increase it. The fact is, if I stop bottling water tomorrow, people would buy another brand of bottled water. People need to hydrate. As the second largest bottler in the state, we’re filling a role many others are filling.

Has anyone considered the idea of ending bottled water and simply go to the faucet and drink it? Believe it or not, it is the same water!!
