Obama Waffles Again!

Once again it is clear that President Barack Obama has the backbone of a chocolate eclair. Just about every expert on how diseases spread is convinced that instituting a ban on travel in the modern age simply makes things worse. Reality: if someone in Liberia wants to come to America, all they have to do is take a plane to Algeria and fly from there. This is not rocket science. At this moment the American government can monitor everyone who comes from Liberia or any West African nation. Ban travel and these people will wind up coming from a dozen other nations. But, Fox News and Republicans are shouting the sky is falling, and Obama does not wish to be responsible for the sky falling. After all, we all know he was born in Africa, so now he must be on guard against Republicans who claim our society is confronting the “greatest threat to our survival that has occurred in our history?” Oh, that Hitler guy, how could you compare him with ONE person who is dead.

President Obama told reporters that he might reconsider the current policy which allows travel from West Africa. He did note that “experts in the field say it(instituting a ban) is less effective than the measures we are already considering.” Mr. President, how can you listen to “experts” when Fox News experts insist we need a ban?

How about a day of National Calm in America??

Nothing Changes In Israel

The one constant in Israel is that nothing ever changes. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes that his policies toward Palestinians is the right one, and if he can continue the present course of action into the next century, then Israel will live in peace and security. Jewish settlers are moving into east Jerusalem which is causing anger, but Bibi insists that Jews have a right to live wherever they desire. Of course, similar rights do not belong to Palestinians. Yesterday, there were Palestinian demonstrations in the village of Beit Liqya. Boys and adults threw stones and Molotov cocktails, and the end result is no surprise. Israel soldiers returned these weapons with their own weapons and killed a thirteen year old boy. So, what next will occur? At some point, a Palestinian will kill (notice when Palestinians kill it is an act of “murder”) an innocent Israeli. What else could Netanyahu do but send the army into Gaza and blast away with the deaths of hundreds?

There is only ONE solution:

1. Israel must negotiate with the Palestinian Authority.

2. Israel must recognize that Hamas in the Palestinian Authority AIDS the cause of peace!

3. Settlements must end on the West Bank.

4. Israel must engage in economic talks with Palestinians in order to assist the development of its economy.

5. Get Palestinians working at meaningful jobs!

I realize for many Jews the state of Israel is always right. Sorry, a Jew must always be focused on social justice FOR ALL HUMANS!

Let World Know, I’m A Jerk!

The American public becomes furious when ISIS or some other Middle Eastern conglomeration of nut cases displays their head cutting on video while men dance with glee. Where did these kooks ever get the idea of displaying their crimes on video? Obviously, this must have something to do with the Muslim religion. Let me explain the fascination with informing the world that I am number one kook in the world. Hardly a day goes by in America without a few hundred thousand videos of people performing acts of stupidity. Heck, former Congressman Anthony Weiner enjoyed showing the world his weiner. A few days ago in Christian County, Kentucky, two men along with two fifteen year old boys, sodomized a fifteen year old boy in his own home. Naturally, they had to depict their act on a video. How else could the police find them?

The Social Media has transformed normal people in voyeurs who devote their lives to showing off. So, if you are upset at the idiots in ISIS, just remember, they got the idea from we Americans and our obsession on displaying acts of stupidity!

Putin Pouts Demanding Defiance!

These are difficult days for President Vladimir Putin since the media is filled with stories about Ebola or bombings in Iraq or here in America, about illegal immigrants. No one appears to be thinking about Vladimir, nor do world leaders pay any attention to what he thinks concerning issues of the day. Imagine a week without the world focused on another of his threats and histrionics? Vladimir just had to issue another of his warnings of doom in order to shift attention to what he thinks. Putin is on his way to visit Serbia so he gave an interview to a Serbian newspaper. “We hope that our partners realize the futility of attempting to blackmail Russia,and remember what consequences between major nuclear powers could bring for strategic stability…Together with the sanctions against entire sections of our economy, this approach can be called nothing but hostile” I assume he is raising the possibility of a nuclear war. What is most amazing is that Russian political and military leaders do not rise up in anger at this wild man and his threats to bring destruction to their nation.

Putin history lesson:

1. Gangsters overthrew the government of Ukraine.
2. Thugs paid by the CIA seized control of Ukraine.
3. Putin, the man of peace intervened to protect Ukrainians.
4. OK, some airliner was shot down, but it was shot down by the CIA!

In other words, Putin is only seeking peace and justice. The man certainly has balls to utter this nonsense!

Just Following Jesus

As I recall, Jesus Christ lived about two thousand years ago, and during his lifetime he preached for peace and justice for all humanity. Since his death, thousands of men have argued they are in contact with the dead dude of peace and justice. Mark Driscoll is an evangelical minister of Mars Hill church and he preaches some mighty words about how men should be head of the household and teach their women how to behave. I find ironic that someone who believes in Jesus the man of peace heads a church with the name of MARS, the god of War. Anyway, Mark has been engaged for years in a war with the elders of his church, and finally came forth with some words of sorrow. “I readily acknowledge I am an imperfect messenger of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Specifically, I have confessed to past pride, anger and a domineering spirit.”

Elders of the church complain he is guilty not only of being a bully, but of plagiarized actions. It always amazes me that men argue they are a messenger of Jesus who was a man of peace and they so enjoy being a man of war. As far as I know, there is no evidence Jesus hired Driscoll to be his messenger.

P.S. How does one apply to be a messenger for Christ? I am currently without a job and sure could use one delivering messages from the Jesus man!

MADNESS OF EBOLA

The New York Daily News headline proclaimed to a picture of President Obama:

FOR GOD’S SAKE
GET A GRIP

Now, let me get this clear, if there is an illness in our nation, somehow, some way the President can cure the patient. Barack Obama has nothing to do with Ebola, he has no power, he lacks any skill to treat this disease. The Center for Disease Control is in charge. Can we Americans for once, keep politics out of an issue that has nothing to do with politics? Does the Daily News want the President to offer advice to doctors? This is madness become even more madness by the constant nonstop attacks on Obama for every ill in the world.

I hate to inform the Daily News but the Texas Health Presbyterian hospital committed the mistakes. Not the CDC. So, how about another headline directed at Texas Governor Rick Perry:

FOR GOD’SAKE
GET A GRIP

Court Aborts Abortion Bans

The state of Texas is more than a physical entity, it is also a state of mind. Governor Rick Perry, among the great thinkers in our society, believes the “greatest threats to America” are caused by bans on guns and women who insist on having an abortion. Texas has passed one law after another to impede the right of women to have an abortion. Thank God,the US Supreme Court placed a hold on the latest attack on women, the 2013 anti-which closed all but a few abortion clinics in Texas. The law requires doctors working in an abortion clinic to have access to a hospital. Of course, many hospitals fear being connected with abortion so they block doctors from gaining access to the hospital.

The new ruling will enable about 2o of the existing 30 odd abortion facilities to remain open. Texas has ben attempting an end run against the Roe decision which allows abortion,. The government of Texas simply blocks access to abortion facilities, as part of its plan to end abortion in the state. The most remarkable aspect of this endeavor is lack of anger on the part of women to have their rights taken away. Vote against Republicans to vote for women rights!

Republicans Want ISIS Strategy

Fox News and Republicans are up in arms because there are not enough arms up in action in Iraq. They blame Barack Obama for the rise of ISIS and want to know why this group of terrorists have yet to be defeated. Let’s examine the record:

1. In 2006, when George Bush was president, his administration backed Nouri al Maliki to become head of the Iraqi government.

2. Since he assumed office this crooked, corrupt man has driven out from any place of responsibility Sunni men as well as sending thousands to jail. Maliki believes Shiites must dominate all aspects of Iraqi society, and the result is that thousands of Sunnis welcomed the arrival of ISIS.

3. ISIS consists of about 25,000 soldiers. The Iraqi army, allegedly has 250,000 soldiers. Do the math.

4. President Obama offered to retain US military advisers in Iraq but Prime Minister Maliki insisted that Americans would be subject sharia law if accused of a crime. Imagine what Fox News and Republicans would have shouted if President Obama had agreed to that demand.

Turkey is our “ally.” As Turkish troops stand idle, ISIS is blasting away at the Kurdish city of Kobani. Oh, the Turkish military is doing something–it is attacking Kurds. So, let me get this straight: Kurds are fighting ISIS and Turkey is fighting soldiers who are fighting ISIS. Sorry, the blame for problems in the Middle East rests on heads of Muslims in the region.

‘Dr. Ryan On Climate Change

It has become a basic premise of any Republican politician to demonstrate a complete lack of knowledge concerning what is happening in America as well as the world. Representative Paul Ryan ran for the office of Vice President of the United States of America which, ordinarily, would result in a desire to a grasp concerning issues of world importance. But,he is a Republican who must adhere to ideas that make no scientific sense, and simply cast the individual as illiterate and ignorant. Ryan was engaged in a debate with a Democrat and was asked by a moderator to state his views on climate change. He insisted that since climate change had occurred throughout history, we should not blame people today for influencing our climate.

The moderator pushed the issue and noted that 97% of scientists believed human actions have influenced climate. Of course, Ryan replied, that was their view, and he disagreed with it. Again he was asked about climate change and insisted, “I don’t know” what has caused climate change. There is no doubt he earned an ‘A’ grade from the Tea Party. How can college educated people believe this nonsense? What has happened to education in America??
