Whatever Happened To America?

The evidence is quite clear, Republicans will gain more seats in Congress, and most probably may secure control of a majority of seats in the US Senate. The most interesting question is: why will Americans reward a party with victory which seeks to make life harder for the average American? Frankly, this phenomena has occurred in the past, and will happen in the future. We live in interesting times. We live in an era in which those under age, forty, lack any sense of their economic needs, and prefer fiddling with fingers than fiddling with their minds. OK, blame Barack Obama for his failures to understand how Presidents must lead, but the alternative to Barack Obama is not the Koch brothers.

In the past when most American engaged in hard physical labor, they understood the boss was in his office and they were out on the assembly line. They did not need to go to college in order to understand their economic interests were not similar to those of the boss. Today, our young people lack a sense of CLASS. They do not understand there IS a Working Class, and they are in it. They do not understand that when one is in the Working Class, one must vote for their economic interests. And, they certainly are not those of this Republican Party.

The disaster will come. Americans will learn the goals of Republicans are not their goals. Hopefully, in 2016 there will be another change in attitudes by Americans.

Wasting Time, Wasting Money

In the mid point of the 19th century as cities began to burst with thousands of people a new institution was created –the modern police force. Prior to the 1860s few cities had anything other than some night watchmen to patrol the streets of a city. The original purpose was to prevent crime or to capture those engaged in a crime. No one in his right mind would have thought the purpose of police was to halt citizens walking along the street. CRIMINALS who threatened the lives of citizens was the enemy of the new police force. Oh, most cops were from the newly arrived Irish immigrants since being a member of the police force was equivalent to being a man without any talent. In other words, a cop was merely the name of a bum. For some reason that original purpose has dramatically changed over time. Today, our cops spend their waking hours pestering people who are NOT engaged in the act of crime, but simply walking along the street minding their own business.

Police in Denver just engaged in raids in order to find marijuana in the state of Colorado which allows the sale of marijuana. As I recall, the citizens of that state voted to allow its residents to purchase and use this product. But, marijuana is a “deadly product” which can kill people. If police are interested in activities leading to death, why not just seize any car on the road and prevent 30,000 deaths each year? Then again, police could invade offices of stock brokers and seize their assets in order to prevent economic crimes against ordinary citizens. Why in God’s names are police raiding marijuana sites in a state that allows marijuana??

Sarah Palin Wants To Return To Politics

Sarah Palin has offered to the American people a wonderful gift–she is considering a return to political wars and may even throw her hat into the ring. If there is one thing about Sarah it is her forceful manner of speaking. “The more they’re pouring on the more I’m going to bug the crap out of them by being out there with the message hopefully running for public office in the future.” I am not exactly clear as to who are “they” since it could be members of her own family who engaged in a fight with Mama Bear a few weeks ago. Or, it could be those “Democrats” or it could be those “Republicans” who refuse her advice. Consider the manner in which her return to politics can save America:

1. She could challenge Vladimir Putin to a shoot out in the wilds of Alaska. Winner take all, the US vs Russia on line.

2. She could have a shoot out with members of her family since this group so enjoys a good family fight.

3. She could offer to take on ISIS either with guns or with fists.

4. Of course the real battle she could readily win is with this dude known as, EBOLA.

God Bless Sarah Palin, the real coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

Why Not Just Auction Off Election?

One wonders what our Founding Fathers would have thought about the incredible cost of elections in the United States of America? I assume that other than Justice Scalia there are few in this nation who actually believe the “original intention” of the wig headed men two hundred years ago created the Constitution intended that one could purchase a seat in Congress. So, why not just admit that seats are for sale and instead of submitting we Americans to the nonstop voices filling our TV sets with words of doom if we vote for the other guy, why not just have an auction and allow whoever has the dough in a congressional seat of a state to simply openly purchase a victory in the allegedly thing we term, an election?

1. In each congressional seat allow an open auction. The one submitting the highest bid simply is the next congressmen.

2. Money from these auctions could be used for some meaningful task such as new roads or money for schools.

Let’s end the pretense of a “free election” in which the person who offers intelligent ideas is elected. Those days are over.

In fact, why not just auction of the United States of America to the Koch Brothers?

Kobani Deaths Continue

I have written today about hysteria in America, but when one gazes at world events, the only apparent common pattern is death and destruction. No, these murders are not in any way comparable to deaths in World War II. We do not have a Holocaust, but we do have killers who openly boast about their murders. ISIS murderers in the embattled city of Kobani which is filled with Kurds is besieged by ISIS forces. Naturally, these men of God must show the world another example of how they can chop off a head. This is probably the first time since the French Revolution so much attention has been paid to chopping off heads. OOPs, sorry, I forgot about Saudi Arabia which so far this year has chopped off a dozen heads without a word of complaint from the Western world.

Death has become the natural event in Kobani. US Planes are bombing ISIS forces with some success. We can now boast that our bad guys are dying. So, this must be good news. Death will not leave the environs of Kobani, he has found a fall resting place. At least Death is a happy person in Kobani!

I Do Not Understand

I suspect it will take at least twenty years before any future historian or sociologist can make sense of what has been transpiring in this society over the past decade. There is something mysterious and strange about behaviors of our young people. They inhabit a world they make on their own within the confines of Social Media. Jaylen Fryberg is dead. He also is responsible for the deaths of at least two of his friends. We now know that he texted these friends to have lunch with him. He then strode into the lunchroom, took out a revolver and proceeded to shoot his FRIENDS. No, he did Not shoot his enemies, just his friends. Why is the great mystery of this shooting. A popular boy, an athlete, the Prince at a homecoming somehow became furious towards his friends.

I simply do Not understand this shooting. It does not fit into any pattern of logic. It was simply an explosion of anger and hate towards those who were friends. We today can not explain such behavior. The only pattern we do know is that our society is filled with nonstop anger, hate, and hysteria. We have placed our youth into this environment, and most probably the end result is not pleasant for anyone. Hysteria rules the land. What have we done to our youth??

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.

Putin Speaks, So Listen!!

Vlaimir Putin has spoken and I trust that Americans will listen to a man with an iron heart who does not fear any animal, let alone any human. There are unconfirmed reports he just came back from wrestling a bear and sending him flying away in fear. So, the Great Leader decided to offer some of his wise words both to the people of Russia and America. He wants the world to know that: “I don’t think the United States poses a threat to Russia.” Wow, now I can sleep peacefully knowing the most powerful man in the world does not expect to go to war against America! However, the All Wise one has some words of advice to the American people about Barack Obama: “I think the policies of the ruling elite(in America) are erroneous. I think they go against our(Russian) interests, and undermine trust in the United States.”

I think we Americans should pay attention to this man of the truth. If only he was in the White House, every Muslim terrorist would tremble in fear. Imagine the head of ISIS being challenged to a duel at high noon with the Black Belt leader of Russia! If only we had a Rambo in the White House instead of a guy who plays golf! How about asking Putin to come to America and become our leader? OK, so you gays might be a bit worried, but which is more important, disturbing gays or ending fear of terrorists??

Then again, this blog would end if Putin was in charge.

BEWARE BARACK OBAMA!

Once again Barack Obama has failed to display the qualities of Presidential leadership that we expect from the person who leads this nation. He allowed former Ebola patient, nurse Nina Pham to enter the white House, and he hugged this womb! Furthermore, he told the American people: “I don’t think that Ebola poses a threat to the United States.” NO threat? Good lord how can Fox News continue to exist if there is no threat. Just think of all the reporters who would be out of work if there was no threat. Just think of Republicans next week who would be defeated if there was no threat? We MUST have a threat if this nation is to survive as a great nation. OK, so we did have one during World War II, but once that war was allowed to end, where have all our threats gone? A nation without a threat is a nation divided, and can no longer exist as a great nation.

It is now clear that John Boehner has the right not to touch or speak with the President. Ted Cruz now has a new fear to spread: “Don’t Touch Barack Obama or Any Of His Policies!” Not only is Barack Obama poison to our beloved wealthy folk whose money he seeks to take, he is now poison to each and every American. Let’s place Barack Obama in quarantine!

Another Shooting In Another School

The history of school shooting in the United States of America usually follows the same pattern:

1. The shooting occurs in a suburban area or a small town.

2. The shooter is from the middle class.

3. The shooter has been allowed by parents and society to play with guns.

4. The shooter is a Christian.

5. The shooting NEVER takes place in an urban school setting.

6. The shooter is a white male.

7. The NRA will insist the shooter would have been halted if only each student has been provided with a weapon.

Jalyen Fryburg meets six of these seven criteria. He was a black male. He also fails to meet the usual requirement of being lonely. Jaylen was a happy young boy who was popular. However, he entered the cafeteria at Maryville Pilchuck HS in Maryville, Washington, and proceeded to blast away. There are reports he was angry about racist comments and refusal of a girl to go out with him. The bottom line is that this nation loves guns and allows anyone to have access to them. Pray tell why such shooting do not occur in European nations?
