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.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human experience from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Oh, to be a child and run with the wind.

No world leader today impresses me.

No American political leader impresses me other than Senator Warren.

Why do we refer to the “Valley of Death” but never to the “Valley of Life?”

Life offers second chances, why not Death?

Long time since I heard, “show me the money.”

I have always loved a good mystery.

Why Do Israelis Elect Idiots?

Let us get a few facts clear when discussing the nation of Israel. It contains about eight million Jews in an area of the world which contains nearly two hundred million Muslims and about forty million Christians. I admit the Israel air force is the best in the region and the Israel army is certainly the best. Of course, the American army was the best in the world and has yet to be able to defeat guerrilla style forces in the region. Members of the Democratic party in the USA contacted the Israel prime minister and urged that he meet with them during his trip to the United States in order to discuss with Republicans why they are right to hate a president who was twice elected by the American people. Senator Richard Durbin and Senator Diane Feinstein asked the Israel leader to meet with Democratic senators.

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu responded that he could not in order not to “compound the misperception of partisanship. So, the Israel leader does not wish to be perceived as favoring one party over the other. I assume that is why the Israel ambassador to the United States of America secretly met with Republican congressmen to plan this trip!

So, Israelis, why did you elect this man to lead your country. Do you people have an appointment with disaster?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

USA, Newsday: “Sue Over Frozen Dinner”

Damn right, who wants to eat a frozen dinner!

Norway, Norway Post: ‘Police Shooting Disconnected”

I guess Norwegian police are learning from American.

UK, Guardian: “Get Terror Camp Active”

NO terror camps, no money spent on military.

Sort of depends who is your spouse?

Fight For America, Halt Wage Rise!

Once again the forces of communism are gaining power in this land of capitalism. Once again, the forces of evil are seeking to deny those with wealth from obtaining a few dollars more so they can go about their desire to create jobs for those in need. Once again those with are frightened because those without seek to gain some of the money of those with money. The American Legislative Council is working hard to prevent the rise in minimum wages because once those without are able to earn at least $24,000 it signifies the end of capitalism in our beloved United States of America. According to Cara Sullivan of this group, our beloved capitalist America is witnessing an “onslaught” of demands for more money. The success of these Communists is apparent at the local level where some cities are raising minimum wages to $10 an hour!

At ten dollars an hour these greedy communists can earn nearly $20,000 a year. This is now approaching the poverty level which is $22,000 a year. I do not know how those with a million a month can survive in a land in which more people reach the poverty level. Future historians will mark these days as the end of capitalism! Oh, Walmart just raised wages to at least $9 an hour. These are definitely hard times for those with money. Only one yacht this year for the kids.

Hop Bus, Get Raped

The people of Turkey are part of an ancient civilization that has long been a source of peace. But, there is also something that has become all too often a frequent aspect of the culture of that land. Twenty year old Ozgecan Aslan simply got on a mini bus on her way home and the end result of this simple action wound up with her battered body being found. It was clear that she had been raped and then murdered. The sad aspect of this case is she was not the first woman to get on a bus and wind up raped and murdered. She was attacked by the bus driver, his dad and another guy. The fact this group worked together is clear they had long planned an attack on a woman. Thousands are in the streets of Turkey demanding an end to the campaign against women.

Many blame the government of President Recep Erdogan and his Justice and Development party which believes the greets threat to women in Turkey stems from lack of education about the Muslim religion. Each month President Erdogan comes out with new ideas about making Muslim women more Muslim rather than making Muslim women more secure. He has become obsessed with more religious education rather than become concerned about the safety of women on public transport.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “I Thought I Would Die”

Sarah Palin spoke a coherent sentence!

Sweden, Local: “Gender Neutral Toilets”

In the end, shit is shit.

South Africa, Mail & Guardian: “NO Fare Says Uber Taxi”

I guess fair is fair.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Perfect Pancakes”

At least something is perfect in Russia.

Norway, Norway Post: “Winter Holiday Begins”

From now until 2016, the clowns run our Congress.

Is Silence Always Wrong?

President Recep Erdogan was on a trip to Mexico when he decided to provide America with an opportunity to receive his words of wisdom. Actually, he did make a good point by noting the silence of President Obama, Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry over the murder of three Muslims on the University of North Carolina campus. He described the silence as “telling.” Erdogan went on to blast American leaders. “If you stay silent when faced with an incident like this, and don’t make a statement, the world will stay silent towards you.” His point is well taken although I don’t think that foreign ministers in countries issue statements about murders in their nation. The President definitely should have said something, after all, he made several comments about the murder of black men.

However, when President Erdogan pontificates about silence concerning murder of the innocent, he opens up comments about his own silences.

1. He has been very silent about confronting ISIS. He refused to aid Kurd soldiers fighting them.

2. He has been very silent concerning prejudice against Kurds in his nation.

3. He is the chief of silence when it comes to the topic of genocide against Armenians during World War I.

For each statement Obama makes about human rights how about one from Erdogan

They’re Watching You!

I, together with millions of Americans was so pleased in 2008 that we could vote for a president who was a former teacher of Constitutional law. After eight years of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld abusing the very basis of our Constitution we looked forward to a new era in which the rule of law would be the normal operating mode of our government. Barack Obama taught CONSTITUTIONAL LAW! Surely, a person with that background would uphold the law and ensure that constitutional rights would be accorded to one and all. And, then meant, also to those in jail. Alas, that was then, and now is now.

A new report from the American Civil Liberties Union identifies a new approach in our government to the issue of individual rights. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is now taking photos of our license plates in order to establish a data base. OH, the DEA is also taking pictures of those who drive the car as well as those who are passengers. I assume this also is part of a data base. Hey, whatever happened to the idea of individual rights. OH, I am certain our Constitutional lawyer will make certain that he is only doing this to protect us against bad people.
