On Flags And Such

There is something rather amusing as political leaders rush to support the end of selling or displaying or honoring those who fought for the Confederacy a few years back in some sort of conflict about the future of the United States of America. It has now resulted in a backlash from those who seek to defend the honor and dignity of their great, great, great grandfathers. And, when they say, “great” they mean great. State Senator John Stevens is rather upset about talk to rename the Nathan Bedford Park. To him, and to people like Bill O’Reilly, all this talk about removing names or flags is simply part of a Muslim plot to destroy the very fabric of this nation.

According to Stevens, “what separates us from ISIS?”Exam the evidence:

1.ISIS blows up statues from the past.

2.ISIS renames things and places to remove infidel ideas.

3. Here in America liberals are demanding to blow up statues and rename things.

Add up one and two and what do you get? ISIS is the only group that is fighting to retain the name of General Bedford Forest! OH, the good General was the one who created the KKK. OH, for the good old days of lynching when darkies knew their place!

Spies For Peace?

There are moments when one wonders exactly what President Obama even knows about the spies he employs. There is one truth in all discussions concerning how and why the National Security Agency spies on Americans, on Russians, on Chinese, on ISIS, and, heck, even on our allies in Europe. One is left wondering if our President knows about this spying, and, if he does not, why the heck does he not know! French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are sort of peeved that their friend, their ally, their dinner companion, allows the NSA to spy on leaders in Europe.

OH well, President Obama will issue the “apology,” and ensure one and all that no harm was intended. After all, the NSA runs the show in Washington D.C. It decides who is “the enemy,” and whose mail should be checked. My only question is–“does the NSA also check the mail of Barack Obama?”

Nukes For Europe?

Many still alive in America spent a good part of our lives experiencing the Cold War when no one knew if when or where someone would send an atomic bomb to initiate the end of civilization. Today,Vladimir Putin so enjoys pretending he can use atomic bombs in order to compel the world to,not only listen to his words,but to obey his demands for respect. Frankly,no one knows if this man is crazy enough to actually employ nuclear weapons as part of his diplomatic efforts.

The US is now talking about sending nuclear weapons back to Europe as part of some “show of force.” America and the European Union made a mistake in moving quickly into eastern Europe and talking about placing weapons on the border of Russia. It is time to move back, quiet down the rhetoric, and make certain no one is showing off any nuclear weapons.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines from the world press along with our comments.

Sweden, Local: “Man Arrested For Kiling Bull”

Bullshit!

France, Connexion: “Banner Cherry Season”

I assume we are talking about fruit,not women.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

Our feelings about the American Congress?

Australia,Canberra Times: “Time To Sell Children”

I’ll take one blond and two black haired ones.

“Iran, Tehran Times: “Who Is Listening?”

When it comes to needs of the poor–no one.

“I’m Hurt, Help Me!”

It was Tuesday and this is in modern America. Walter Williams DeLeon, age 45, was waving a towel and apparently seeking aid and assistance from the police. As he approached a police car, the cops decided that he was “approaching them in an aggressive manner.” So, what else to do but blast away at this threatening man? They did shout before shooting, “drop the gun.” There is a problem, if one does NOT have a gun it is rather difficult to drop what one does not possess.

Some police now believe that he was injured and in distress. Oh,after the shooting they placed handcuffs on his hand as he lay there bleeding.

Only in America do police ASSUME that any act by a person represents a “THREAT” to their safety. The man must have been hurt and the towel was simply being used to halt some bleeding. The good news is that he was a white man which goes to prove that cops are an equal opportunity group.

Wal-Mart Takes A Stand

There is good news from Wal-Mart. It has decided to take a stand about the Confederate flag. “We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the Confederate flag.”Great, this will now end any and all problems confronting African Americans in this land. Now, how about:

1. Removing all weapons from Wal-Mart stores.

2. Paying African Americans-and other workers decent salaries.

3. Promoting African American workers to higher status jobs.

4. Providing economic support for its workers to obtain further education.

I have a hunch these steps would go a long way to making this land a safer and happier place for one and all-including African Americans.

WE Support Redskins!

The Washington Redskin football team is being assaulted by demands for it to end using the word,”Indian”and replace it with something like Native American. The Redskins insist their name is a trademark and do not wish to end its use. Let me get this straight:

1. Political correct police wish to substitute “Native American” for Redskin.

2. The word,”American”comes from an ITALIAN named Americo Vespucci who was involved in exploration a few hundred years ago. So, according to Politically Correct folk, those who lived on this continent when Europeans arrived should be named after an ITALIAN!

Those living here before Europeans arrived did have names: Apache, Iriquois, Delaware–English translations of the original name. So, why not call them: Washington Delaware Redskins?

Donald Trumps Republicans!

The Donald man had a few words of wisdom to offer other candidates seeking the Republican nomination for president. He made clear, “they are all dumb, dumb, I said, and they are all stupid,just dumb and stupid.” I have to admit that Donald finally made an intelligent comment about events in the world. He went on to explain his approach to handling world problems.

“I am a great general, a great one. I will handle ISIS. I will bomb them, then I will surround them and wipe them out. Wipe them out” When asked if he would use American troops,the Great General commented: “NO, I will surround ISIS and wipe them out.”

After wiping out ISIS,Donald intends to build a wall on our border with Mexico,and “I will make them pay the cost of this wall.” And, so on and so on.

My dream is to listen into a conversation between Donald and Vladimir Putin.

Nuts To You!

In the good old days when we got on a plane, the nice ladies would come around and serve us food and give us plenty of peanuts and other such nice things. Alas,today, we live in a perfect capitalist world in which those at headquarters have figured out to the penny how to make an extra penny. Mr. Jeremiah Thede got on a United Airline plane in Rome, and as soon as the plane had reached up into the sky,he stood up and demanded peanuts, lots and lots of peanuts. “Nuts or crackers” he told one and all.

Within a few moments chaos reigned as he insisted they supply him with more and more of his beloved peanuts. “I can have all the peanuts and crackers I fucking want.” Well, the pilot landed in Belfast on his way to Chicago. It is estimated the peanuts desired cost United Airlines about $815,000.

I wonder how the guys at corporate headquarters will handle this sum of money?

Ah, for the good old days before Obama became president!

Obama Hates Israel!

Michael Oren used to be the Ambassador from Israel to the United States of America. He has now published a new book which exposes the anti-Israel and anti-Jewish feelings of the black dude from Africa who somehow became president of the USA. According to Oren, Barack Obama “imperiled Israel,” and was “soft on terrorism” and his advisers were “infected with neo-Marxist ideas.” Let me see:

1. Barack Obama pushed for a health care system that benefited Drug companies and private hospitals. Just what Marx wanted?

2. Barack Obama, after saving automobile companies, returned them to their owners. Just what Marx desired?

3. Under the Obama administration Israel has received EIGHTEEN BILLION DOLLARS OF MILITARY AID. Just what any enemy of Israel would desire!

4. Under the Obama administration Israel was provided money to construct its Dome to shoot down incoming missiles. Yep, this is what an enemy of Israel would seek.

5. Secretary of State John Kerry has visited Israel at least ten times seeking to help this nation achieve peace with Palestine.

I have a hunch that Michael Oren wants to sell books.
