Whatever Happened To Welfare Of The Poor?

There are many reasons why members of the Republican party so love Bibi Netanyahu. Of course, the most important is that this foul mouthed man hates Barack Obama. However, there are other reasons. Bibi has led his nation into increasing poverty and growing disaster in lack of housing or social welfare for the masses. At this point in time about one out of three Israelis qualifies as being poor, and the growth in inequality between those at the bottom or in the middle in Israel is muck akin to the situation in America. People in Israel shout about lack of housing for those who are middle class or in poverty. While hundred of millions are spent on the West Bank to provide settlers taking land from Palestinians, not much is spent to aid those in the rest of Israel to get housing or basic social welfare. Here in America the war against the poor is much more important than the war against Islamic terrorism.

I am a child of the Depression. When Franklin Roosevelt assumed the office of President his initial acts were to get people back to work and within five months there was work for over four million. Today, our government led by Congress refuses to push through legislation that provides decent earnings for those who want to WORK. I forgot, if we damage the lives of millionaires they will refuse to invest their money and jobs will cease to exist. The only certain thing in life is that if one has a million, then one will always get their money working to make more money. Higher wages translates into more money in the hands of consumers to purchase more goods. This is basic economics. The best welfare is raising the minimum wage so people have money to spend.

Republicans Insult The Flag

Members of the Republican party of the United States of America so enjoy posing as stalwart defenders of the nation and continue to be upset that this country is ruled by the tyrant from the land of Africa. I have always admired Senator John McCain for his defense of basic values to the nation and our flag. His buddy,Lindsay Graham, has always insisted that he places the good of country before the good of his party. But it increasingly is evident that this group of politicians who claim to be Republicans place their ideas as to what constitutes patriotism as the most important value in life. OK, Senator Graham has the right to disagree with the President on the issue of Iran and nuclear arms. So, here is the latest example that Republicans prefer behaving as children than mature adults.

Senator Graham has made clear that he will push through legislation that ends American participation in the United Nations unless President Obama adopts his views on how to negotiate with Iran over nuclear weapons. He believes making a treaty with Iran is a “mistake for the ages”k and just like Bibi Netanyahu he intends to wreck the house because daddy Obama will not allow him to play with his toys. The Children’s Hour is now the most important time of the day in our Congress!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “I Am Going To Jupiter”

Me, I would jump at this chance to escape Fox News.

Norway, Norway Post: “Get Your Act Together”

Impossible request to Republicans in Congress.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Accept Our Terms Or Leave”

Words of wisdom from Comrade Putin.

Egypt, al-ahram: “South Sudan Peace Talks Collapse”

Just some more old news.

China, China Daily: “Keep Population Down”

Easy, separate beds!

Bibi Blows More Bullshit

The Fox News candidate for prime minister of Israel is still in power and just like the idiots a that TV station, Bibi is not able to control his output of bullshit. After frightening the people of Israel with his dire words of fear and hate toward those who are Muslims, the BS artist once again shifted the words he had spoken on Sunday to a new version on Friday. “I don’t want a one-state solution. I want a sustainable, peaceful two state-solution. But for that, circumstances have to change. I haven’t changed my policies, what has changed is reality.” JUST LAST WEEK HE PROMISED THERE WOULD NOT BE A TWO-STATE SOLUTION!! I have a hunch that Bibi Netanyahu would go into Arab areas and promise to convert to the Muslim religion if that would produce votes. He is the Israel version of Ted Cruz and Rudy Giuliani, say anything, do anything for a vote!

Bibi does have one problem that he can not bullshit away. The United Nations is not impressed with his bullshit. Maybe Jews buy this load of shit, but members of the UN do not. So, what can occur:

1. The UN Security Council can vote to support the idea of a two-state solution and back it up with the threat of sanctions.

2. The American delegate to that body could be absent or vote for this solution.

3. The International Criminal Court could investigate the deaths in Gaza.

I hate to inform the people of Israel but Israel Jews do not control the world.

Blast Away In Yemen

I am quite aware that the United States operates drones in Yemen whose goal is killing the bad guys. I wonder how anyone in the US military which runs this operation can figure out who are the bad guys and wh o are the good guys in Yemen. Yesterday, suicide bombers blasted away at mosques that were under the control of Shiite Muslims known as the Houthi group which currently are in control of the capital city of Sanaa. Muslims were at prayer on Friday night when these suicide bombers entered, not to pray, but to kill fellow Muslims. I forgot that in olden days Catholic Christians murdered Protestant Christians and vice versa. Of course in those olden times no one had bombs to blow themselves up and no one had drones to send missiles into the air. Anyway, there are dozens of Shiite Muslims now dead. Of course, the former President Hadi had fled to southern regions of the nation and his men were attacked by a different group and he had to flee.

1. We do know there is a civil war in Yemen.

2. We do know there are good and bad guys.

Now, if we could figure out which is which, then the American guys in Virginia could direct some drones to kill someone. The problem is WHO?

Excerpts From Clinton Diaries

We are proud to announce that this intrepid reporter has discovered the secret diaries of Hillary Clinton and during the coming months will reveal excerpts from this document.

February, 2009

“It is wonderful being Secretary of State even though it would have been more wonderful taking the oath of office as President. I must admit he is taller and darker than me, but when it comes to politics, this guy is a novice. I tried to see him today and explain foreign policy in the Middle East but he was busy playing basketball. Gee, Bill, just never got into this game. I guess his mind and body was more interested in bodies of the female persuasion.

Ok, not that I am a boss in the area of foreign policy, it is time to contact my friends in the Muslim Brotherhood and find out what I can do to further the cause of we Muslims. I just hope Bill O’Reilly does not find out that I am a secret Muslim. That man has been everywhere and knows everything. I must be on guard not to allow him to penetrate the world of my secrets. Who knows, will his next book be, Killing Hillary?”

Racial Thursdays Make For Friendships

Every so often one encounters evidence that something is happening within the United States that can not be explained by rational thinking. At Fort Wainright in Alaska members of the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team has organize a new form of fellowship whose goal, in theory,is to foster ideas of friendship and cohesion among all soldiers. One day of the week is set aside for the guys and gals to just have some interesting discussions about life in the military. This is called, “RACIAL THURSDAYS.” During this day of the week, each soldier can speak his mind. “You can make any racial remark you desire without any consequences” One sergeant just could not get into the spirit of the game. “It’s degrading to the soldiers. WE’ve had soldiers almost fight over the crap going on here.” For some reason several black soldiers just could not get into the spirit of the game.

After all, in the United States Congress we do not have “Racial Thursdays.” Instead, we have seven days of Racial anger directed at the President of the United States. We also have Racial Hatred week directed at those who are poor and lack defense against the haters of America. I guess these soldiers just want to get into the spirit of Ted Cruz, Fox News, and the guys who only love those whose skins are whites and possess gobs of money.

Tunisia Fights Terrorism

Among the ongoing mantras of Fox News and Republicans is that America is engaged in a conflict with Muslim nations. Tunisia was the origin of the now forgotten Arab Spring and for decades has been a center of moderation in religion. Even today, there are still Jews living in this Muslim area and a high proportion of educated Muslims remain secular in spirit and practice. So, it was not surprising that Islamic terrorists decided to blast away at their fellow Muslims. They attacked a major museum in Tunis. Reports indicate a group of gunmen emerged from vans and blasted away at tourists who had come to inspect ancient Roman ruins. At least nineteen are dead and dozens are wounded. President Beji Caid Essenbi blasted Islamic terrorism. It may be difficult for Republicans to grasp that thousands of moderates inhabit the nation of Tunisia.

In one sense, Tunisia represents the failed dream of the Arab Spring. That movement was organized by young Muslims seeking a new brand of their religion that would create societies in which people could enjoy democracy and freedom of religion. Given the chaos in Egypt or Libya or Syria it is now clear that was a dream, not a reality. Conservatives rule in Muslim lands in the Middle East. So, what is the destiny of those seeking the democratic dream?

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

I believe tigers in Siberia are happy when Vladimir Putin is back in Moscow.

I await a law in Texas which gives toddlers in the crib the right to have a gun.

These days I frequently wonder how I got to live in this crazy version of the USA?

I would not be surprised to learn about an alliance of Republicans and ISIS to end the tyranny of OBAMA!

I simply can not fathom the hatred that now exists in America.

Some days I wish to migrate to Denmark and enjoy life with people who are happy, not angry.

I think the Kentucky basketball team should become the new New York Knicks basketball team.

A Shooting In Russia

Russian opposition leader Boris Nemstov is dead. That we can confirm, but everything else that has been written about this murder is confusing to say the least. According to Russian authorities, if one can ever believe Russian authorities, Zaur Dadayev was the man who killed Nemstov. Everyone agrees that he came from Chechnya and has ties to other people in that land. At this point, the story becomes somewhat murky.

1. Dadayev claims he killed Nemmstov because of religious reasons, Nemstov was Jewish.

2. Dadayev claims he killed Nemstov because the Russian supported Charlie Hebdo.

3. Dadayev claims he killed Nemstov for the $85,000.

4. Dadayev claims there was some sort of power struggle in Chechnya and somehow killing Nemstov was part of the mess.

5. Dadayev claims he had some other guys with him. He had to pay them for the job.

Vladimir Putin wants the world to know he was nowhere near Moscow at the time of the murder. I think he was in Siberia with his tigers.

Oh well, one day, we will get to know who did what and why they did it.
