HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “US Student Sues Swedish University”

Damn it, he got his degree and was not in debt!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Police Post Speed Meter”

It only applies to cars driven by black folk.

Norway, Norway Post: “Five Arrested For Wolf Hunting”

I will woof on this story.

Greece, Kathimeri: “Denial”

The national song of the American Congress.

Kenya, Nation: “Garbage Collection Begins After Two Week Suspension”

How does anyone know?

Chairman Barack At Gathering

Every year each American president is provided one opportunity to express his sense of humor before the annual gathering of White House correspondents. President Obama displayed an interesting sense of humor

“Just this week, Michele Bachmann predicted that I would bring about the biblical end of days. Now, that is some legacy!”

Donald Trump is still here–still”

Turns out that Jeb Bush identified himself as an Hispanic back in 2009. You know that is an innocent mistake. It reminds me of when I identified myself as an American.

“Ted Cruz said that denying the existence climate change made him like Galileo. That’s not really an apt comparison. Galileo believe the Earth revolved around the sun. Ted Cruz believes the sun revolves around Ted Cruz.”

Let me add a few:

“Sarah Palin looked out the window and saw God gazing into her house wondering if this was really the result of a million years of evolution of humans.”

“Rand Paul stood up for ending military involvement in the Middle East before he came out for it.””

“Sheldon Adelson threw his money into the ring.”

“Bibi Netanyahu insists that he is the right choice to play Moses, after all he brought Israelis out of the land of peace into the land of war”

Vatican Safe, For Now!

There is some evidence that terrorists were planning an attack upon the Vatican. Initial reports indicate that Islamic groups connected to al-Qaeda were ready to send in the suicide bombers against the Vatican in order to shut up the Pope who constantly makes statements about the need for peace in the Middle East. However, our research indicates that not only are Muslim terrorists angry at Pope Francis, but so are a heck of a lot of Catholics who regard his comments about gays and lesbians as insulting to all they hold dear in the Catholic religion. After all, would you want your daughter sitting in church next to some LESBIANS! One suspects there are some priests who do not like all this talk and action about predators upon the young. They believe it is their right to seek out young boys for sex mates. Just read the Bible.

Pope Francis has brought some fresh air into the Catholic Church. OK, Islamic terrorists are angry at him, then again, they hate imams who speak for peace. But, if Pope Francis lives long enough there will be hundreds of priests who would welcome his death. The Vatican curia do not want anyone examining their financial transactions. I have a hunch, threats upon the life of Pope Francis are more threatening from within the Curia than from without!

Another Day Another Candidate

It is Monday in America and those seeking the nomination for the Republican party as the next president of the United States of America will have to get at the back of the line. As of this moment, we have in line:

Jeb Bush

Maroc Rubio

Rand Paul

Rick Santorum

Chris Christy

Rick Perry

Scott Walker

Of course, Donald Trump

Oh, and the governor of Michigan, Rick Snyder joined the Rick party and wants to announce that he definitely wants to become President of this land. Naturally, he made the announcement in Las Vega at a meeting called by the Republican Jewish coalition. I assume that Sheldon Adelson was there checking that no one used the expression, “occupied West Bank” instead of the Israel West Bank. No Republican wants to anger the man who will be offering a $100 million prize to the one who can suck the behinds of the Koch Brothers and Adelson.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the world from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 44 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I Republicans love anyone who is against poor people.

We have to find a word to replace Genocide so that Turks will be happy.

I wonder what will replace iPads in the future.

Most young Americans must be compelled to spend four hours a day in the sunshine.

Barack Obama is the best friend for Israel. He seeks peace.

There is no end to hatred in this world.

I wonder if God will ever return to this experiment.

On Solitary Confinement

At this very moment as I write these words thousands of men and even women are sitting in a cell in some jail alone. They have been placed in solitary confinement. The origin of this practice derives from 19th century prisons. The concept of solitary confinement was introduced in American jails as a means of aiding those who had committed a crime to repent and become a good Christian. Men were placed in a cell, provided with a Bible and made to read it over and over again. They were not allowed to have any contact with other prisoners and spent days, months, and years alone with their thoughts and the Bible in order to cleanse their minds of evil doing. In those days, this idea was considered to be an innovation and an example of modern thinking.

It is now 2015 and still we employ this horrific punishment for a reason. The reason, at this point, escapes me. It is cruel and unusual punishment whose end result is transforming people into psychological wrecks. The original purpose was to REFORM men, the modern concept is to destroy minds. There is no thought connected with solitary confinement that might result in aiding people who committed a crime to reflect and become a different person. They invariably wind up as mental wrecks. This in the year, 2015!

Oops, Putin Said A Bad Word!

Vladimir Putin has an ability to irritate one and all in this world. He is so confident that whatever he utters will be accepted in the Soviet Union, –oops, I meant, Russia, that he once again angered another government. He was attending a meeting in the nation of Armenia to remember the murder of 1.5 million Armenians residing in Turkey during World War I, when he referred to this disaster as a GENOCIDE. Naturally, the government of Turkey is upset because they prefer living in a world that never happened. Either the Armenians in Turkey killed themselves or they were collaborating with the invading Russian army, but somehow in some way about 1.5 million wound up dead. Actually, the American Ambassador Henry Morgenthau described the atrocities frankly and clearly to his government. Armenians were murdered and it is time for Turkey to recognize this sloughier and initiate an educational program that teaches the truth.

What happened a hundred years is not the fault of modern Turks anymore than the Holocaust is the fault of modern Germans or the massacre of Indians in the West is the fault of modern Americans. As a society we must accept the truth of what happened in the past and work to ensure it does not happen today.

American Heroes

As one who has taught the new generation of American youth it is never surprising to me how they display attitudes of contempt for those who fight for this nation. These young people much prefer the world of social media to the world that exists out of their home. Latest figures indicate the average American young person spends 90% of their time at home engaged with their iPad or some other piece of technology. Of course, when they go off to college and then spend time engaged in some form of disrespect to women or those who fight for their nation, it is never surprising about the outcome. A group of patriotic young men who belong to the University of Florida chapter of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity were having another of their joyous times on the beach at Panama City Beach resort when they spotted some disabled veterans.

So, what did these young heroes do? They stole their flags and urinated at them. Just another day in the lives of our young males in the year, 2015. A large percent of these young men lack any respect for anyone who serves the nation. Piss on these sad group of young men.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “Demolition Mission”

Ok, we are good at demolishing, now how about building?

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Mama Mia”

This is not good spaghetti!

Hungary, Budapest Times: “Banks Abandoned”

I assume they took the money with them.

Norway, Norway Post: “Five Jailed For Wolf Hunting”

Woof, woof to you!

South Africa, Mail & Guardian: “Police And Army Raid Hostel”

I trust it was really a house of of ill fame

Fallacy Of Drone Wars

The ongoing complaint about President Obama by members of the Republican party is that he is some sort of Neville Chamberlain who wants to appease evil doers. They insist he fails as a war leader because he does not want to take out the bad people. Drone attacks under the administration of President Obama are fifty times more prevalent than under the administration of our prior president, one George Bush. The real criticism of Obama is that he has gone crazy in ordering Drone attacks that have resulted in the death of thousands of bad guys –along with the deaths of thousands of innocent people. The US government has now acknowledged that a drone attack on January 15, 2015 which was directed at a military compound also led to the deaths of two hostages–Warren Weinstein and Giovanni Lo Porto. The Pakistan Foreign Ministry issued a statement: “The deaths of Weinstein and Lo Porto in a drone demonstrates the risk and unintended consequences of using this use of technology that Pakistan had been highlighting for a long time.”

Where is the evidence that killing bad guys with drones–along with a lot of innocent people–has in any way or any form resulted in the weakening of terrorist forces??? Drone attacks may result in the death of a bad guy but it also results in making other men desire to obtain revenge. The US government is now proud they have been open about admitting these deaths. Terrorism will only be defeated by another ideology that results in people leaving terrorism.
