Why Bibi Netanyahu Will Fail

Israel Prime Minister is no boasting that he alone knows how to work with regional Arab leaders in defeating the forces of evil led by terrorists in Iran and ISIS. “Common dangers are clearly bringing Israel and its Arab neighbors together as we confront the dangers of Iran and ISIS.” In other words, Bibi believes there is some form of coalition between the Shiite Iranians and the Sunni ISIS. So, he wants the governments of Egypt and Saudi Arabia and Jordan to link together and beat the bad guys.

1. Saudi Arabia leaders are the enemy of most Islamic groups fighting in the region. Saudi leaders represent the forces of corruption and lack of concern for poor people. They are the elite, not the common people in the region.

2. Iran has absolutely NO connection to ISIS. Iran is aiding Iraq TO FIGHT ISIS.

3. Let me see,Bibi, do you actually believe being an ally of Jews will resonate with most Muslims in the region!

4. Let me see,Bibi, do you actually believe Muslims are going to ally with a nation that persecutes Muslims on the West Bank and in Israel!

5. Why would any Muslim in the region ally with Israel which refuses to allow Muslims to have their own nation!

Bibi, your talk goes great with Republicans in the US, but these folks have nothing to do with the Middle East.

Why We Failed In Afghanistan

Well,the city of Kunduz has fallen to the Taliban, and things are back to normal in Afghanistan. It is now fifteen years since US troops along with members of the Northern Alliance swept through Afghanistan and sent Taliban forces fleeing for their lives. American leaders breathed a sigh of relief that vengeance had now been achieved for the infamous 9/11 attack. We had WON. We had beaten the bBAD GUYS and now peace and prosperity would return to Afghanistan. Hurrah!

Fifteen years have passed and now the DEFEATED TALIBAN are back in control of a major city. I have no doubt they will be driven from the city only to find another city to capture. So, why are they so successful and why are Afghan soldiers not?

1. The Taliban impose honesty in a village.

2. The Taliban end corruption in a village.

3. The Taliban are NOT connected to any Western forces.

4. The Taliban play to historic prejudices against equality of women.

5. The Taliban promise respect for the Muslim religion.

6. Taliban soldiers BELIEVE IN SOMETHING.


We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.


These days stay out of Chicago if you want to live.

I was raised in a world in which there were gun laws, now there are just gunmen.

Ben Carson rises in the polls and now I want Donald as President.

Rise of Carly Fiorina is proof that each moment another sucker gets to the age to vote.

Gee, these days, I feel sorrow for John Boehner who tried to lead a band of crazy people.

I guess Mitch McConnell is next on the hit list.

How about Ted Cruz heading to Syria and ending the power of ISIS?

Death In Georgia

No, this is not another story about shootings and deaths in our major cities.NO, this is not another story about kids playing with guns and somehow shooting one another. This is simply a story about how Pope Francis was unable to persuade some folks down in Georgia to behave like Christian men and women. Ms. Kelly Gissendmer is now dead and there is joy in Georgia because this evil woman is responsible for a murder. Since she helped to murder one person, it is only Christian to murder another.Pope Francis urged clemency and behavior as Christians, but this is Georgia and the Parole Office is out for death.

To sum up this story,Ms.Gissendmer hired a hit man to kill her husband. The hit man is still alive because the person who actually did the killing was never sentenced to death. The woman who paid for the killing is now dead. Her last words were: “I just want to say, ‘God Bless you all and I love you, Susan. You let my kids know I went out singing, Amazing Grace.”

Another bad person is dead. God Bless you all–the Killers!

Death In Chicago

Chicago is known as the windy city, but these days it increasingly is known as the deadly city. This week, over a fifteen hour time period, fourteen people were shot as rival gangs blast away at one another and at anyone in sight. A pregnant mother of two and a grandmother were walking across the street when a car pulled up, the window was lowered and someone quietly fired away killing them both and leaving a ten month old baby lying on the ground. These days newspapers daily report at least one death by shooting every twenty four hours. The other day three were killed while enjoying a barbecue.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel says,”enough is enough.” Frankly, in gun crazy America,death by shooting is now enshrined in our Constitution which the Supreme Court rules allows each and every American to possess guns. There simply is need for this Supreme Court to return to historic Court decisions that allowed cities and states to enact gun control laws. How about going back to the good old days when those with guns had to leave them with the sheriff when they entered town!

More Troops On The Ground?

The ongoing mantra of Republican candidates is the need for “more boots on the ground.” If we just send a few thousand American soldiers the war against ISIS will be over within a few months. As I recall, that was the promise of George Bush, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld who assured the American people we would be welcomed by joyous crowds. Latest figures indicate that during the past three years at least 30,000 new recruits have joined ISIS. Send in our boys and we can double that numbers.

There is a city in Afghanistan named Kundiz. It was attacked by Taliban forces numbering less than a thousand soldiers. Inside the city were over FIVE THOUSAND AFGHAN SOLDIERS. The Taliban took the city and the soldiers are now on a mountain top protecting an air base. After all, planes can fly them quickly away from actual fighting.There are plenty of boots on the ground, but few contain the feet of soldiers who want to fight for their country.

Oh Dem Tricky Americans!

There are moments when I wonder what it would be like to live in the world of Vladimir Putin in the beloved land of Mother Russia. Member of the Russian legislature proved that Russian legislators are even crazier than those in America. He apparently is a secret member of the Tea Party. According to Deputy Vyacheslav, the reason NASA revealed information about possible water on Mars was it was an attempt to capture the headlines and prevent Putin’s speech to the UN General Assembly being the main feature of the day.

According to him,”Putin’s speech, of course, was the central element of the UN General Assembly meeting.” It makes one wonder whether some Tea Party folk ought to head for Russia since there are plenty of fellow nut cases in that land. How about Ted Cruz running for President of Russia??

Donald Has A Plan

There is good news in America, Donald Trump finally informed the American people as to exactly what one of his “plans” would actually cost this nation. Donald wants to end income tax for anyone earning under $50,000,he wants to cut taxes on our poor rich folk who now might, if they have an incompetent tax prepared pay the figure of 39.6%. As you recall, Mitt Romney never paid more than 16%. Anyway,the great Donald Trump plan would result in a deficit over a ten year period of TEN TRILLION DOLLARS!

Oh,I forgot, Donald is going to avoid this deficit by “reducing waste in government and ending loopholes.” I have been following American politics since 1940 and each and every person running for president has promised to “reduce government waste.” Donald,please give us the details how reducing government “waste” and which loopholes will prevent the TEN TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT. Just asking.

Vladimir On Center Stage

There is only one place that makes Vladimir Putin feel comfortable or welcome,and that is center stage on the world. He went to the United Nations and actually,not only talked with President Obama, but shook his hand. Putin is ready for action, whether it be attacking gays and lesbians in Russia or attacking ISIS in Syria. Of course, the great Russian army has yet to actually take the stage in fighting people since the 1990s when it bombed to hell ‘terrorists’ in Chechnya. Since then it has handled gays and lesbians with firmly, as well as women who sing songs that Vladimir does not like.

Anyway, there are now Russian planes in Syria,and Vladimir is ready to have his ‘advisors’ empower Syrian soldiers to bomb the hell out of Syrian towns, kill some thousands of civilians, and somehow, end the war in Syria. At this point in time,Obama is ready to welcome just about anyone to fight against ISIS. Has he considered:

1. Ted Cruz might lead fervent Christians into battle for the Lord.

2. Or, Scott Walker now has time to actually fight someone who can shoot back. After all,he handled unions with great talent.

Just imagine, Ted Cruz and Vladimir Putin leading Christians into battle for the Lord!

Let’s Get The Baby Killers!

Republican congressmen had their knives ready for the arrival of Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood. Among other attacks on Ms. Richards, Republicans were upset that she earned $520,000! Day after day men and women from Wall Street appear in Congress and they ordinarily earn millions of dollars, heck, some earn $100,000,000 but not a squeak out of Republicans –they probably want to solicit some of those millions in campaign donations.

Cecile Richards was calm,she spoke with clarity, she responded to their questions with a sense of dignity. “Planned Parenthood has been in the news recently because of deceptively edited videos released by a group dedicated to making abortion illegal.”

She displayed dignity and responsibility. Sorry, those qualities are not ordinary ones found in this Congress.
