Enemy Forces In Missouri

I was a resident of the state of Missouri for over fifty years and thus know something about the thinking of people who inhabit that state. The state of Missouri consists of two separate nations, one that is found in cities and one that is found in rural areas. Heck, I was the first JEW that teachers in southern Missouri had ever physically encountered and I definitely was the first Jew who introduced bagels and lox to the city of Poplar Bluff. So, it is not surprising that emails from members of the Missouri National Guard who were sent to the city of Ferguson display certain words, terms, and mindsets.

1. “Enemy Forces” refers to those whose skin are black.

2. “Enemy forces” can also refer to white skin people who protest against the killing of black men.

3. An “adversary” is anyone who protests against murder of black folk.

4. “Friendly forces” are those with white skins. Again, only if they do not protest.

5. The enemy somehow is in possession of “counterintelligence capabilities.” I confess, I have no idea what this means. Perhaps, it means that some who believe there is prejudice in Ferguson, Missouri can gaze out the window and see cops brutalizing black skin men.

RACISM is alive in the state of Missouri. As it is in other parts of our great land. Does this mean, all white Americans are Racists? Of course not, but many ARE!

Iraq Forever

The latest news from Iraq is that ISIS is still around and continues to fight back against planes and soldiers from Iraq and a few dozen other nations in the Middle East. Just when it was thought ISIS was on the run, they are now running straight for the city of Ramadi in Anbar province. So, what is happening?

1. Thousands of fanatics are streaming into Iraq from all parts of the Muslim world in order to partake of an opportunity to die for Allah.

2. For some strange reason these men — and women– continue to obtain arms in order to carry on the fight.

3. ISIS continues to behead while opponents continue to bomb.

4. ISIS followers BELIEVE. It is doubtful if most Iraq soldiers believe in anything other than their pay check.

5. It is a war between devout believers who claim to be carrying out the will of God vs soldiers who are doing a job.

6. ISIS fanatics are to Iraq what Tea Party fanatics are to the USA. People consumed with hate and who believe God is on their side

Opponents of ISIS must have a dream. They need leaders who will inspire. At this moment no such leaders are present in the Middle East other than those who head groups such as IIS. I wonder if there are moderate imams who can inspire?

Republicans For Cleaning Up Our Prison System

During the past thirty years both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have been insisting that we have to lock up those who are criminals. At this moment in time about one out of four people in some sort of prison on this planet are in an American jail. One has to admit that America IS NUMGER ONE!! Yeah, we are NUMBER ONE, NUMBER ONE! Senator Rand Paul and Republican Congressman Raul Labrador, the person,not the dog, are making clear their desire to work with Democrats to ensure that those who are African American or of Hispanic origin, are not being targeted by police forces for a jail term. After all, white skinned foo also smoke some pot,but white skinned folk do not wind up in jail at the same rate as those who are dark skinned. (This blog refused to employ the silly expression, “people of color” since all humans are people of color).

OK, there is now a coalition of Republicans and Democrats to do something about the excessive number of blacks and Hispanics in jail. So, what must be done?

1. Make use of drugs legal. Heck,that solves the entire problem.

2. Pass rigid gun laws to prevent people from wandering around with weapons of destruction.

3. Train cops to be polite when encountering those with dark skins. Actually, talk with those people as though they worked on Wall Street.

Scott Walker Is Silent, Sort Of

Governor Scott Walker is running for president and thus must display his knowledge of foreign policy. One usually begins with a trip to Europe that does not include viewing the famous sites of other countries but entails talking with members of the foreign media. Scott made clear that he does not discuss foreign policy while outside the territory of the United States of America. Of course, he does agree that the entire Congress of the USA should be part of deciding on the foreign policy of the American people. However, Scott did make a few points:

1. His bravery is standing up to teachers and firemen seeking higher wages does qualify him to stand up to ISIS.

2. He does want troops in Syria, but at this moment does not know who they will be fighting with or alongside. Sort of confusing.

3. He loves Israel and each and every Jew he encounters.

4. He hates Iran and each and every Iranian. At the moment, he is sort of confused as to exactly where lies this country. Somewhere in the Middle East, he thinks.

5. He wants to destroy Iran’s nuclear sites, but is not exactly clear how to do this.

6. He definitely hates Islamic terrorists.

7. When he notes “our allies” he means, Israel.

Oh, and his firm in his belief that President Obama has a “failed foreign policy.” One of these days he will discuss this foreign policy.

Putin Answers Questions

Once each year the Great Leader takes some time in order to respond to each and every question that is posed him by those who are peasants in the land. OK, so he does not answer each and every question, but after three hours and fifty eight minutes of his wisdom, who can deny this man, a bit of rest. We can not provide the entire range of responses since that would consume hours of your time, but at least we can submit a few choice comments from the man who knows all:

Q: How many hours do you sleep each night?” from a five year old Russian.

R: “I’m happy that you love to sleep.” OK, he sort of did not answer the question, but he did discuss sleep.

Q: Why did we take the Crimea?

R: I had to listen to the voice of the people of Crimea.” He did hold a referendum, didn’t he?

Q: Will Russia allow the people in the Kurile Islands to vote about joining Japan?

R: “Why would any person want to be part of Japan rather than our Beloved Russia?

Q: Do you enjoy speaking with the Russian people?

R: “Yes.”

Q: Do you believe in God?

R: “Yes.”

I submitted the following question but it was not answered.

“So, how much money do you exactly have in your bank account?”

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

We now have over five hundred Secretaries of State.

Marco Rubio wants to lead troops into battle against ISIS

We are now witnessing the unraveling of Rand Paul from voice of peace to war leader.

I wonder if the Tea Party keeps score of how many black dudes died today?

Modern police tactics -shoot first, ask questions later.

We are witnessing the season of our discontent.

Hate is now the dominating feeling in this nation. And, guess who is the hated?

Anti-Immigrant Hysteria

There is no question that throughout the entire world a growing anger is being felt toward the Immigrant. The Popular Front political party in France has now grown to over twenty percent of the vote due to its open hatred of The Immigrant. In England, the UKip promises to rid the country of immigrants. Germany has an anti immigrant political movement. Italy, which is the main target of African immigrants, has a growing anger toward any immigrant. Oh, Italians also hate Roma immigrants from eastern Europe. Turkey is now home to hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who are hated by millions of Syrians. South Africa which has an economy that includes modern industry has become the object of over five million immigrants from African societies that do not have economies offering alternative job opportunities other than farming. The message is clear- fewer and fewer people want to farm, at least farm the old fashioned way which requires hard work and depends on the weather.

These immigrants share one thing in common. They will take any physical labor job, they will do the dirty work of modern societies, they will accept lower wages because they fear being deported, and they lack any form of protection by government. They readily become a political talking point by demagogues such as Ted Cruz or anyone who just wants to get votes. The immigrant is a modern wandering person knowing no home, having no friend and never welcomed by those who claim to believe in some form of religion.

Oh, Ted Cruz actually was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father.

When Does It Stop??

I recently was with some relatives in New York who insist that President Obama “plays the race card” since he has the habit of making comments about the death of black skinned young men. There is a considerable group within this nation which insists that police are always right when they shoot someone whose skin is black. These same people insist the Internal Revenue Bureau is always wrong and consist of government workers whose only goal is damaging the rights of Americans not to pay their taxes. It is interesting how these Americans have absolutely no respect for any government official who works for the IRS but never doubt the work of those working for the police department. I assume this attitude stems from the fact that white skinned Americans rarely are halted while driving their cars except for when going at a rathe thigh speed rate. If one is never halted for silly things like a broken headlight, or of course, if so halted, the cop is polite and urges that you fix it.

Levar Jones was halted by police because he did not have the seat belt on. How many thousands have done that at one point or another? Oh, he was then shot for “reaching for a weapon” and thus died. One day a black man dies for a broken headlight, the next day for not wearing his seat belt. Such is the REALITY of life for black skinned men. How many times has a white skinned women been halted other than for speeding?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

South Africa, Mail & Guardian: “Take Education Seriously”

I will be testing for how students take education seriously.

Sweden, Local: “I’m On Antidepressants”

Barck Obama after a session with congressmen?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Don’t Freak Out”

Ted Cruz will not be the next president.

UK, Guardian: “Gunned Down In Cold Blood”

Is there any other way to handle a broken tail light violation?

Norway, Norway Post: “Curse Of God”

His creation of humans?

So, What Is New In America??

It is now apparent that our police forces are concerned about the fact that all too many dark skinned men seek to demand their right to breathe. Where did these men get the idea that the right to breathe is inout Constitution? I have carefully examined every word in this document without finding a single reference to the right to breathe. As a God fearing American, I believe that our police care about citizens, but this does not translate into ensuring that each and every American is breathing. I believe the Constitution is clear that if you want to breathe, go out in the fresh air and take a good breath.

Eric Garner was selling illegal cigarettes, a major violation of our laws and thus had to be wrestled to the ground by four cops, and all he could rant about was, “I can’t breathe.” An Oklahoma reserve cop who is 72 years old and works in insurance, shot a dark skinned man who ranted and raves, “I’m losing my breath.” Another cop said the obvious, “fuck your breath.” When did this nation get the idea that a function of the police was to check on how each person took a deep breathe?

We are becoming a nanny nation in which the police now have to monitor how people breathe. What next, help people shit and piss??
