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.

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 await the day when no black child will be shot to death on the streets of our nation.

Some seek the peace of death, some of life.

I encounter at age 84 fatigue when standing for more then five minutes.

Be a gardner of love flowers.

At least technology compels people to write.

These days the most angry in America are the wealthy, not the poor.

I wonder if God runs a life lottery?

We are simply passengers in life headed toward an unknown destiny.

Oh Dem Islamic Terrorists!

The Muslim people of this world include nearly two billion humans who devote their days to work, to prayer and the normal activities of families. At tops, about 1% of those who are Muslim engage in some form of violence toward other people. Of course, Muslims have never been able to match the violence of Christians like Germans who murdered over thirty million human beings, but, we only refer to these murderers as Nazis, not as Christian Germans. A coalition in Austria of the Social Democratic Party and the People’s Party has passed laws that will monitor behavior of Muslims in the country. These laws require that imams must be able to speak German. The Koran must be standardized in the German language, and no Islamic organization can receive funding from foreign sources.

I was raised in the United States of America and in the synagogue we prayed in the Hebrew language, not in English. Many of the Conservative Rabbis were from Europe and some actually did not speak English. Somehow we managed to live in peace and did not disturb the people of America. Such laws as these in Austria are insulting not only to Muslims, but to all fair minded people!

Venezuela-BEWARE!

There are unconfirmed reports that Rudy Giuliani is very upset at recent events in Venezuela. Our cowardly president has refused to stand up to the threat of the army of that nation whose leader apparently does not like we Americans. President Nicolas Maduro has allowed his nation to descent into economic chaos with policies that have witnessed inflation rates zoom and unemployment rates rise and people being beaten up by police and soldiers if they dare to protest. Maduro blames all economic problems on Yankee Imperialists. OK, we Americans have interfered in one Latin American county after another, but there has been no need to bother with Venezuela, just leave it up to Old St. Knick. President Maduro has imposed sanctions upon any American diplomats who would dare to visit his nation. I contacted Rudy Giliuani and was told:

“This is another failure of the Obama administration. Why do they allow two bit dictators to insult our nation. Just let me lead a company of soldiers down there and clean up the mess.” He told me there might be need of him to ask Governor Scott Walker to accompany him and stand upon a balcony and confront the soldiers of Venezuela. If he can handle 100,000 protesters in Madison, Wisconsin, imagine how he could handle some Venezuelan crowd!

Reality is that one Venezuelan mayor after another is placed in jail because Maduro has wrecked the economy.

Fight For Wealthy Equality!

I am sick and tired of all this talk about the needs of poor people. How often do you encounter an article or TV show that depicts the plight of our top one percent of wealthy people. To be more accurate,w hat about the plight of the 99% of the top 1% of those with large incomes? Do you realize that the top 1% of the top 1% of those with incomes in this land are falling behind the top 1% of the top of wealthy folks. WE need an affirmative action plan to aid the 99% of those in the top 1% of income. Each year they fall further behind the top 1% of the top 1% in income. Do you realize their yachts are half the size of the top 1% of the top 1%? It is time for Congress to recognize the plight of the 99% of the top 1% with money!

I know that not only does President Obama hate America, he also hates the minority who constitute 99% of the top 1% with money. Have you ever heard a single word out of his mouth concerning their plight in being left behind? He hates wealthy people because most of them are white!

Raise income for the 99% of the top 1% and it will result in high paying jobs for all Americans!

Tales Of Bill O’Reilly In Combat

There is one thing that is certain in life, those who adhere to the Republican Party are the bravest folk in our land. They are also the wisest people in our land since they alone know that Barack Obama was born in another land and simply lacks guts to do anything. Bill is still upset because some reporters challenged his accounts of being a man under fire in Argentine during the Falkland Island wars back in the 1980s. It now appears that not only did Bill confront terrorists in Argentine, but he also went face to face with bad people who murdered several nuns in El Salvador. According to Bill: “I was in El Salvador when I saw nuns get shot in the back of the head.” He went on to say that he arrived in El Salvador to work for CBS early in 1981.

Now, this is one great story. Bill arrived in El Salvador in 1981 to see the nuns get shot. There is one slight problem with this story. The nuns got shot in 1980. I do apologize for being picky, but I thought reporters were duty bound to check facts. Oh, in 2009, Bill told WVVH-TV that he arrived in El Salvador just after the nuns got shot.

Now, you know why Fox News hired Bill.

Mouth That Roared

Members of the Republican party have a rendezvous with any nut case who can utter words of defiance and hatred of the president of the United States of America. For years this title has been held by Senator
Ted Cruz who believes any and all problems in this nation are the result of immigrants from the land of Mexico. I should make clear he refers to illegal immigrants. Of course, Ted was born in Canada, but what the hell, his mom was American. Now, after years of making millions of dollars speaking to businessmen about his heroism during 9/11 surrounded by dozens of cops wants to once again emerge into the limelight of making more money by attacking the patriotism of President Obama. Now, Congressman Darrell Issa is touting the wise words of the millionaire from New York. Darrell made clear that Rudy needs our “thanks” for clarifying the issue of who is a patriot.

Rudy and Darrell believe the president does not believe in the American experience of being an exceptional nation. I wonder if there is a nation in this world, a group of people in this world who do not regard themselves as “exceptional.” The issue is not whether a nation is exceptional, but what is the nature of that exceptional behavior? I do know that Rudy Giuliani is exceptional as making money using the bravery of others.

Prejudice Not Good For Business

Among the most confusing issues that I simply do not understand is the drive to “protect businessmen” from having to serve gay or LGBT customers. It is most certain that such a bill will become law in Arkandas and now legislators in Arizona are going to pass legislation that prevents municipalities from passing such laws. Here is my confusion:

1. Do I check its customer for his or her beliefs about sex?

2. Do LGBT customers somehow convey to me they are of that sexual persuasion?

3. If woman wants to try on male pants do I show her the door?

If my religion forbids me to sell to Muslims or Jews or atheists do I have that right?

If my religion forbids me to live with Jews or Muslims do I have that right?

If I do not like short people, can I refuse to sell to them?

The list could go on and on.

By the way, Walmart is located in Arkansas, will Arkansas laws impact who Walmart does business with?

Republican Protects America, Once Again

About thirty years ago, Ronald Reagan, the guardian saint of conservative Republicans issued executive orders that allowed illegal immigrants from Mexico to remain in the United States of America. I do not recall any Republican protest about the Reagan policy of protecting illegals in our fair land. Throughout the history of the United States of America, our President is the one who sets foreign policy and handles issues of illegal immigrants. But, there is a Republican Federal judge in the great state of Texas who desires to protect the American people. Federal District Judge Andrew Hanen has issued an injection that supports the right of states to challenge policies of President Obama and Homeland Security to halt deportation of illegal immigrants. You can make one guess whether these are Muslim terrorists or just old fashioned Mexican ones who take jobs away from hard working decent Americans.

Judge Hanen says that Homeland Security does not have “discretion by law to give 4.54 million aliens a legal position” in this land of freedom. Anyway, President Obama will seek support from a different Federal Judge to support his actions. Word of advice, do not consult any Federal Judge who resides in the state of Texas. There is something in the air of that place!
