Religious Freedom For All

There are times when Republicans employ the word, “freedom” in ways that defy any semblance of intelligence. I was raised when the expression “religious freedom” referred to the right of people to practice their religion in face of discrimination and hatred. Heck, back in those days, we were concerned that this fight entailed the very right to even live because some government refused to allow people to pray. We have moved a long way from the days of the Holocaust to a time when someone who makes cakes is now the center of religious freedom. In the state of Indiana as well other parts of the USA, if those who bake cakes do not wish to sell their products to gays and lesbians they have now have a constitutional right to say, NO.

I wonder what next will become a right that Republicans will make into a law:

1. I have a constitutional to drive my car at whatever speed God says.

2. I have a constitutional right to pee in the streets, it is my dick!

3. I have a constitutional right to bring my gun to the Congressional galleries. Just check the 2nd Amendment.

The world has gone mad now that Republicans control state government.

Why I Want Ted Cruz

The sun will now rise in America since our beloved fighter for freedom, Senator Ted Cruz has thrown his mouth into the race for that office. Anyone who loves America has to support this candidacy. Let me explain:

1. Ted Cruz has the enthusiastic support of the Flintstones and most dinosaurs. Finally, someone who will stand up for we Neanderthals!

2. Ted Cruz is either the brother or father of Jesus Christ. We will soon discover which one.

3. Ted is a Christian who loves Jews like Bibi Netanyahu.

4. OK, so John McCain calls him a “wacko.” Just remember John was the one who gave us Sarah Palin!

5. If elected, Ted will send atomic bombs to hit Iran, to hit ISIS in Iraq and Russia. Finally, we can discover what a Russian a-bomb sounds like.

6. Ted loves his wife and kids.

7. Finally, someone who makes Mitt Romney come across as a viable candidate for president.

8. Christians believe the world will end and we all go to heaven. What better man to accomplish that goal than Ted Cruz?

9. If elected, stupidity will reign in America. So, how will this be different than what we have today?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “Dog Moves In With Family”

I assume the cat moved out.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “People Lose Faith In Police”

Sorry, this is NOT news.

France, Connexion: “Thousands March Against Health Laws”

At least they are getting some exercise.

China, China Daily: “China Heads Reform Project”

We can expect that many minds will be reformed of bad ideas about democracy.

Russia,Moscow Times: “First President Transplant”

Finally, Putin gets a heart!

“I’m Running for President”

Senator Ted Cruz has announced that he will run for the office of President of the United States of America. Yup, his hat is in the ring. He has put on his belt, loaded up his guns and is ready to enter the fray of presidential politics. We have checked with some leaders in the world and here are their reactions to this momentous event:

Bibi Netanyahu: Wonderful, now we have two real men ready to stand up against Iran and blast the hell out of those evil doers. Ted, just check with me on how to scare the hell out of people in order to get elected.

John Boehner: Ted, my eyes are already filled with tears of joy. I need someone who has courage and guts to support my courageous efforts in the House.

Fox News: Finally, a man of action ready to blow up Iran.

Sarah Palin: Ted, I am so glad we will have a real man in the White House and I can finally go hunting with a man rather than a whimp.

Bill O’Reilly: Ted, can I write your biography the killing of Ted?

Vladimir Putin: How about a wrestling match to decide relations between our two countries?

Immigration Authorities: Ted, we know you are an immigrant, can you verify your status?

Pope Francis: Are you really a Catholic?

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.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Australia, Canberra Times: “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”

Just trust our job creators to create high paying $8 an hour jobs!

Canada, Toronto Star: “I Am Going To Mars”

Any place to escape Republican congressmen.

France, Connexion: “This Is A Good Steak”

I will stake my reputation on this.

Sweden, Local: “Cover Your Eyes I Will Be Tearful”

Another promise from John Boehner.

China, China Daily: “Keep Peiping Population Down”

Just have adults sleep in separate beds.

Say “Rape” And Add Word: Pakistan

I confess to having been raised with the concept that one does not attack any religious figure, particularly someone of another faith. In a sense, these people are “off ground” to acts of violence. I do understand that members of the Taliban do not like any and all foreigners in their land. But, what sometimes gets me confused is when they blow themselves up and kill any and all people in an area. I assume but he law of probability some of those blown up are fellow Muslims. Oh, I forgot, there are bad and good Muslims, something like when Catholics hate Protestants which empowers any Christian to go ahead and murder a fellow Christian. OK,I get that point, but how does one understand when the Taliban rapes a 74 year old nun? For God’s sake, this is an elderly woman who spends her life praying to the big guy up in the sky.

OK, I must learn to accept that anyone is subject to rape in Pakistan, anyone is subject to being killed in Pakistan. I must accept that raping an elderly woman somehow, in some way, indicate the rapist is simply following the dictates of God. Logically speaking, this leaves only one conclusion – this God up in the sky really does not think much of his creations if he approves of rape and murder of them.

Such acts only leave me doubting the existence of God if he is in anyway connected with these creatures of death.

Wither Pope Francis?

Pope Francis recently made a remark about the possibility that he may not be around for a long time. After all, he is not a young man and his life expectancy indicates a decade of future life for this good man. He now must become concerned about his legacy. Sorry, once in heaven one can not do earthly good deeds. So, what can this good man do before death?

1. He must address the reality that modern Catholics in Europe and the US are simply not on the same page about birth control.

2. He must confront the gap between the Vatican and abortion.

3. He must confront the gap between the Vatican and modern nations on the issue of female role in the church.

What could he do?

1. Select modern thinking men to become Cardinals.

2. Confront the issue of gays openly and welcome them into the church.

3. Remember that it was Catholic churches in America which first integrated churches and schools.

Make some dramatic move about one of these issues!

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

A Republican is to ignorance as a camel is to water.

“Trampling the Constitution” is an inborn expression to Republicans when they do it.

I have lost all respect for Senator John McCain who was raised to serve the commander-in-chief.

Some Muslim children flee to death in Syria.

Some black American children meet death on the streets of America.

I so long wait for a Spring of Peace.

Guns Everywhere At Any Time

We wish to express our admiration for the courageous stand of the Arizona House of Representatives. This band of patriots are determined to ensure that each and every American, and each and every person who resides in this nation has the right to carry their weapon into any place they desire. Under this proposed bill, those with concealed guns can enter any public building because the Constitution clearly shows our beloved Founding Fathers wanted to ensure that future generations could blast away with their automatic rifles. If you doubt me, read the Second Amendment. I assume the next step in furthering the cause of freedom from tyrannical government is’

1. The White House belongs to the American people which means I have the right to enter it with my concealed weapon.

2. Congressmen represent we people so I have the right to bring my submachine gun into its chambers and practice blasting away.

3. I wonder if the Vatican falls under provisions of the Second Amendment? I think Pope Francis would enjoy using my automatic rifle to get rid of heretics.
