Silence Is Golden

It was 9/11 yesterday and the president of the United States and Republican leaders decided to remain silent about this day and its past. We did not hear wise words of wisdom from former President George Bush,not a word about how the Surge under General Petraeus would end violence in the land of Iraq. President Barack Obama placed is hand over his heart and sealed his lips. No more words about drawing lines in the sand, no more defiant words that “if you do X, then I will do, Y.” Silence, silence. Those dead are no longer in the minds of Americans. Heck, Apple just released a new iPhone and it has neat new things to play with. Republicans understand the number one issue in the world is our DEBT. OK, so the USA has had a debt 90% of its history, but to have a debt today means the end of the American dream.

We Americans are in the silent mode. No promises to end poverty or disease or to ensure that people actually have access to medical care. The solution for all problems in Republican America is to do nothing and each week repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Michael Douglas And Catherine Zeta-Jones

I understand there are people in the United States of America, in India, in China and certainly in the European Union who are concerned about world events. I gather something is going on in a place named Syria and there is some commotion in the city of Cairo. Oh,some men and women in Washington D.C. are busily voting, once again,about some health insurance law that was passed three years ago, but after 35 times I must admit to no longer paying any attention. At this moment in time, the most important news event in my life was a report that actor Michael Douglas and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones are separated. Now, this is the news which captures the interest of we Americans. Oh,a few people are upset in this damn place called Syria, but how can an event in sucha faraway place really match the importance of Michael and Catherine splitting up?

I can sleep very soundly if a few bombs are dropped in Syria or the Egyptian army shoots up a few places, but how can I go to bed and get a good sleep if Douglas and Jones no longer share a bed??

Next Syrian War

There currently is a war taking place in a country that goes by the name of-Syria. This nation is provided weapons and missiles and planes in order to attack the people of Syria because the government of Syria wants to protect the country of Syria against enemies of the government. In the name of peace and order, the government of Syria has murdered over 100,000 Syirans. The government has even used chemical weapons to kill its own people. The result is that the European Union and the United States are considering responding with an air assault. So, what might happen if outside forces attack the Syrian government. Please follow closely:

1. If Syria attacks Israel which has been on the sidelines, then Israel has promised to blast away at Syria.

2. This would lead to Hezbollah in Lebanon to send thousands of missiles into Israel

3. This would result in the US sending missiles into Lebanon and Syria.

4. This would lead Israel to send more missiles into Syria or Lebanon or the Gaza Strip.

5. This would lead the European Union sending missiles into Syria and maybe Lebanon.

6. This would lead Russia and Iran to send missiles to Syria and Hezbollah which would use them to send missiles into Israel and wherever.

The end result would undoubtedly be peace?

Be Republican Or Else!

The Republican Party is upset because CNN and NBC News have developed a mimi-series dealing with the life of Hillary Clinton. The RNC has issue a warning to these organizations that punishment awaits any network with produces a series about the life of an important Democrat. Let me get this right:

There has been a mini-series about the life of Ronald Reagan.

There has been a mini-series about the life of John Kennedy.

Sarah Palin has appeared on her own TV show.

There have been movies about George Bush.

As of this date,t the Republican National Committee has not issued threats about these events. I wonder why?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Canada, Toronto Star:  “Major Arrested, Gets Severance Pay”

Keep it in the chain of command for sake of officers.

Germany, Der Spiegel:  “Number One Charity”

In the Republican party that means the top 1%.

China, China Daily:  “China Loves Shoe Orders
That sure allows kicking butts.

UK, Guardian:  “Richard III Reburied”
You sure took your time!

USA, aol:  “Twinkies Demand Hit New High”

As good as marijuana for a high!

USA, NY Daily News:  “Manhunt Launched”

I assume  for the ever elusive Carlos Danger!

USA, NY Post: “Minnesota Town Has 4 Year Old Mayor”

Finally, hitting the intelligence level of the Republican party!

Send In The Troops

It is becoming increasingly obvious that anyone who becomes president of the United States of America must demonstrate to the world that he is one tough hombre and is ready to lead men into battle. The new immigration bill would soon unleash upon men, women and children the might force of the United States air force. In addition to building miles and miles of high fences, drones will shortly be seen  over the deserts of our border so they can send down a few missiles and blow to kingdom come any unfortunate Mexican family that dares violate the borders of our fail land. Vader, or Vehicle Dismount and Exploitation Radar is currently being tested along our border with Mexico. It will be supported by thousands of new Border Policemen.

We finally have discovered a way to persuade Republicans in Congress to become job creators. Just send some poor Mexicans headed for the border and within a few months there are thousands of new jobs and new work building drones to catch these impoverished folk. Frankly, permisson has been granted to create a new data base and just  be certain that one day YOUR name will be on that list!

Forever And A Day

We Americans enjoy being involved in wars. We have a  war on crime, a war on drugs, a war on terror and we have a daily war on being obese. Fortunately for those who enjoy wars that can never end we do have a law called the National Defense Authorization Act which allows the government in pursuit of its war on terrorism to detain people that it deems to be “terrorists.” They can be arrested, placed in jail and kept there until the “war on terror” concludes. Oh, that means an American who the government decides is a “terrorist” can be sent to prison -INDEFINITELY since the war on terror will never end anymore than the war on crime or the war on drugs will conclude.

Congressman Adam Smith introduced a bill that would require if an American is charged with being a “terrorist” that he/she would be entitled to a trial by a jury. It lost, 220 to 216. I must admit to feeling safe knowing there are Americans in prison who were never charged with a crime nor given a trial. I assume this is the America that our Founding Fathers fought for.

Nigerian Vigilantes

The nation of Nigeria is divided between Christians and Muslims. People of Muslim faith are divided between those seeking to live a life  based on modern ideas of tolerance and democracy and those desiring to impose Sharia law upon everyone in the country. Young armed men carrying machetes and sticks are getting tired of having radical Muslims enter their cities and attack people in order to make certain everyone in the land knows who is in charge of the land.The Civilian JTF is attacking militants and they really are not interested in law and order other than their own vigilante rule.

As one emphasized to the media: “we are into this to salvage our people from the Boko Haram who had killed our people.” I guess enough is enough and it is time for some to impose vigilante law since the Nigerian army is incapable of behaving  like an army which seeks to serve the people of Nigeria. Between the Boko Haram and the army, for many, vigilante justice is the only justice in town.

Barack Bush New President

There apparently is a  misaprehension that George Bush left Washington D.C. and headed for his ranch in Texas. There is a misaprehension among Republicans that some black dude who was born in Africa apparently sneaked into the White House and allowed a foreigner to become president. Each day makes clear the name of the current president of the United States is Barack George Bush Obama. Bush did not win the election in  2008, but his surrogate, one Barack Obama was the victor. Obama embraced Bush policies on collecting phone records of Americans, having the federal government track the  movement of American citizens and curtail freedom of the press by making difficult the right of reporters to interact with citizens.

There is a delictate balance between national security and the right of Americans to be free from supervision by government officials. Once Obama wanted to end Bush policies of restricting the right of Americans to enjoy the freedoms that once were part of our society. Bushabama forgot that freedom is too precious to waste on the ground there are bad people in the world. There have always and will always be bad people. If we allow those who are evil to determine the extent of our freedom, then evil has triumphed.

Don’t Touch My Gun!!

Among the more difficult concepts for gun lovers in America to understand is that terrorists use guns. Honest, bad guys use guns and other such weapons and they can even walk into a gun store and purchase guns to their desire. More than 65 countries have signed a trade treaty that is designed to monitor the sale of conventional weapons by manufacturers and prevent their free flow into black market sources or to groups seeking death and destruction. The latest count is that 154 nations voted to support this treaty and three oppose it–Syria,Iran and North Korea. Now, we know the friends of guns in America, there nations who have the same mentality of thinking as does the National Rifle Association.

Naturally,Republican Senator Jerry Moran opposes this treaty since it fails to explicitly recognize the right of individuals to bear arms. “The United States should ratify treaties only when they are in our national interest, clear in their goals and language, respect our sovereignty, and do not create any openings to infringe upon our constitutional freedoms.”

Yes, Joe, we support the right of terorists to kill American soldiers. It is their constitutional right-read the second Amendment!!
