France Moves To Right

There is a significant shift in the attitudes of people in the Western world. They increasingly are disgusted with any and all forms of government that include passing laws that impact the wealthy or that allow people of the Muslim religion to enjoy human rights. At a time of vast changes in technology that reduce the number of decent paying jobs, of the rise of immigration from areas that are in poverty to areas that are enjoying the benefits of modern government sponsored legislation such as minimum wage of health insurance, those at the bottom of our economic society are angry. They feel left out and due to social media and the vast wealth of those who can manipulate the news, have come to believe their problems are the result of poor people from the Middle East and Africa. In one way or another liberal forces have failed to communicate with those who are at the bottom of the economic level that maldistribution of wealth is the problem.

Former President Nicolas Sarkozy and his UMP movement made significant gains in local elections in France. They went from controlling 42 local Departments to 65. French Socialist leader Prime Minister Manual Valls made clear “the French have declared their anger of a daily life that is difficult.” Just like Americans, the French do not believe there are any problems with economic inequality but believe all problems stem from immigrants taking their jobs! The only good news is that the truly right wing National Front did not sweep the election.

Oh Them Beggars In Madrid

I spent my early life in the city of New York where just about every subway ride some man wandered through the car seeking a few coins. Or, on subway platforms men and women offered their musical talents to lighten life underground or for those headed home after a tough day hauling boxes for a living. In Madrid there is a new directive to all employees. They are to be on guard against potential violence. NO, the enemy is not a Muslim terrorist but beggars, musicians and gay folk. This is rather interesting. If I work on the Madrid underground, I must constantly be on guard in case somehow I encounter a gay person. Here is my confusion:

1. If someone laughs at a joke does this mean they are then in the state of being a gay person?

2. Exactly which personal characteristic allow me to decide if someone is a gay personal, of the sexual persuasion?

3. It would assist if the authorities had pictures of these gay folk.

In other words, if you find yourself on the Madrid underground, display a somber face and do not laugh!


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

Sweden, Local: Talking In English Baffles Swedes”

Big deal, talking in Swedish is not any English we Americans understand.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Some Mumble In Beer”

I much prefer mumbled beer talk than sober Republican blather.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Minors Flee Denmark”

OK with me as long as they do not flee to the Middle East.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Spread Your Wings”

We are in for some rocky months since Republicans are in town!

Russia, Moscow Times: “Pickpockets Reduced In Half”

Now, if we can reduce Putin’s pickpocketing Russia could end its crime wave.

Some Germans Fear Those Muslims!

As I recall from my childhood, during the 1930s a prevalent fear within Germany was about all those Jews and people from eastern Europe who represented an illness that threatened the health of people in Western Europe, particularly those in Germany. Poor Adolf had to spend his waking hours figuring out ways to prevent the “vermin” and decadent hordes seeking to enter Germany get a foothold. At least today, most Germans are not worried about them Jews or east Europeans. Today, thank God, they have a new fear of having the blood of Germans be polluted by filth. People from Africa and the Middle East are seeking to escape from war and poverty and are willing to do the dirt jobs in Western Europe.

Felix Menzel, age 29, is really worried, not only for his fellow Germans, but for all of Europe. “I see a serious threat coming our way from outside Europe. I feel especially pessimistic about the overpopulation of Africa and Asia. And, I believe that what is unfolding in Iraq and Syria at the moment is a clear harbinger of the first global civil war.” Poor Felix is worried about “Europe’ weakening soul.” I do feel for Felix. Then again, if these vermin don’t come to Germany, who picks up the trash and works their butts off in dirty filthy jobs? Hey, Felix, why not get a job hauling trash and in that way prevent one of these dirty people from working in your beautiful nation?

What’s Going On?

The conclusion of a year should be celebrated with some good news. Hopefully, people are considering the right of we humans to end one year with some good tidings of joy and peace to all mankind. But, things have really gone wacky. Another plane disappeared and now bodies have been floating in the waters of southeast Asia. How or why still another plane from the Singapore area just went off the radar screen is simply beyond the imagination of anyone. Perhaps, this is one for the X-Files. Over in waters around Greece a ship began to burn, a few lives were lost and late yesterday there was a distress call from an alleged “cargo ship” that apparently had a few hundred passengers. They claim that armed men are on board.

After checking with the Republican party and Fox News, it is now clear what is happening:

1. No such plane disasters occurred until Barack Obama became president.

2. Republicans are now in power which has sent terrorist groups employing terror before their arrival. Do you actually think a terrorist wants to confront another filibuster by Ted Cruz??

3. I await another verbal explosion from Rudy Giuliani in which he boasts that if only he were mayor of New York City no such things would occur.

Whatever Happened To Xmas?

Each Christmas season I am compelled to listen to commentators discuss the end of Christmas due to Socialist ideas of liberals seeking to undo the work of our Lord Jesus Christ. Just about every night there must be a comment by Bill O’Reilly about the destruction of the Christmas spirit by those who hate Christmas. I decided to initiate an investigative act of journalism and find out what is destroying the Christmas spirit in our fair land. Here are my results:

I drove around the streets of Lombard, Illinois, a nice suburb of the city of Chicago. After visiting about sixty blocks of the area this is what I discovered:

1. Only two Santa Claus figures on the front lawn.

2. Only four houses had tiny little figures of Christ and the other folks with him.

3. Not a single example of a house with gobs of lights on it.

4. Two Menorah decorations by some Jews.

5. Not a single house had big signs with the words MERRY CHRISTMAS.

6. No snowmen on the front lawn made by kids. Of course, that might be due to the lack of snow.

Yes, Bill and the folks at Fox News, it is them damn Socialists here in Lombard that are destroying the Xmas spirit.

P.S. I did contact Santa up in the North Pole and ask him to help out. He refused to offer guarantees of appearing.


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

Sweden, Local: “Neo Fascists Want Apology”

Big deal, in America, torturers want an apology from Diane Feinstein!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Underwear Matters”

And, so do smells.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Keep A Cool Head”

I think this refers to Dick Cheney who has lost his head.

Norway, Norway Post: “A New Start”

I believe that is what is necessary in the CIA.

Russia, Moscow Times: “When Its Too Good To Be True”

Sanctions, sanctions, on the bad guys!

Is Barack Obama A Radical?

The day after the slaughter of the Democratic party, Senator Mitch McConnell made clear to President Barack Obama that he will not tolerate anymore of that man’s radical ideas. He wants Obama to “move to the center.” As I was raised as a Socialist and remain one at heart even though I recognize that modern life has made what we term to be capitalism or Socialism incapable of functioning in a modern economic system. to call Obama a radical or person of the “left” indicates that Mitch has absolutely no idea who is this man we call, President Obama. He is a man of the Center, and he has never been on the left. In reality he has has been a conservative to anyone who is a “radical.” Evidence?

1. A radical would have pushed for a health care plan that was run by the federal government such as Medicare. Instead, Obama created a plan that makes private health care companies making gobs of money. Obama loves the corporate world.

2. A radical would have from day one of his administration pushed for work plans that provided jobs for the unemployed.

3. A radical would simply in 2009 have pushed through an immigration plan–when Democrats controlled Congress– to offer a plan to citizenship for illegal immigrants.

4. A radical in 2009 would have pushed through a plan to lower student loan debts.

5. And, certainly a “radical” would NOT have made tougher the war on drugs that sends thousands to jail.

Barack Obama is a man of the center.

New Evidence of Anti-Semitism!

I was raised in an east European Jewish community of the Bronx, New York City. We were proud to be Jews, we did not hide who we were, and we certainly were happy that the new state of Israel had been created. Our hope and dream was that Israel would become a beacon of hope in the Middle East that would serve to demonstrate there could be a nation in that area of the world that stood for social justice for all within its borders. In those days there were Jews, Muslims and Christians within the state of Israel. Somewhere along the road of life, a new set of Jews emerged, both here in America and in Israel. They were filled with hate and anger toward Muslims, towards Palestinians and insisted that only Jews had a place in the new nation. Former Israel leader, David Ben-Gurion once told members of the UN that “I am also a Palestinian.” Absolutely, Jews were also Palestinians.

Along came Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose basic dream is to rid Israel and surrounding land of those Palestinians. This was the reality when he assumed office as prime minister of Israel:

1. Israel and Turkish troops held joint military exercises.

2. Israel was working with the Egyptian government.

3. Israel still had friendly relations with members of the European Union.

4. Israel had friendly relations with the government of Tunisia.

5. Israel has friendly relations with the government of Jordan.

Today, none of these governments has anything but dislike for Israel.

Amos Biderman, a cartoonist for the Israel Haaratz newspaper has created a storm of anger for his cartoon which depicts a plane with labeled Israel headed for the twin towers. Biderman insists that Bibi Netanyahu has proved a disaster for the people of Israel. His cartoon was “mocking Bib. He’s been acting like a bull in a china shop with the US, which is Israel’s most important strategic ally.”

The anger has already emerged, Mr. Biderman is now a “self hating Jew.” Tell the truth about failed Israel foreign policy and one becomes a “self hating Jew.”

Life In Putinland

There are stories that come from Russia which reveal the extent of how Vladimir Putin has transformed a budding democratic society into one where what the Great Leader says is truth must be the truth or decide to spend your life in some prison in Siberia. The entire staff of the State Central Museum of Cinema has resigned. Yes, the entire staff of trained professionals because they do not wish to work for someone who simply mouths of the ideas of Putin, the great expert on cinema. The entire staff claims that Putin appointed Lavria Solonitsya “has demonstrated her incompetence more and more.. the non-transparency of her decisions has come accompanied with a stubborn unwillingness to listen to the opinions of employees.”

What better description of President Vladimir Putin. Place an egomaniac in charge of the nation and he will appoint like thinking people to key jobs. Anyway, I assume these employees will be offered a nice job at a cinema in Siberia.
