On Flags And Such

There is something rather amusing as political leaders rush to support the end of selling or displaying or honoring those who fought for the Confederacy a few years back in some sort of conflict about the future of the United States of America. It has now resulted in a backlash from those who seek to defend the honor and dignity of their great, great, great grandfathers. And, when they say, “great” they mean great. State Senator John Stevens is rather upset about talk to rename the Nathan Bedford Park. To him, and to people like Bill O’Reilly, all this talk about removing names or flags is simply part of a Muslim plot to destroy the very fabric of this nation.

According to Stevens, “what separates us from ISIS?”Exam the evidence:

1.ISIS blows up statues from the past.

2.ISIS renames things and places to remove infidel ideas.

3. Here in America liberals are demanding to blow up statues and rename things.

Add up one and two and what do you get? ISIS is the only group that is fighting to retain the name of General Bedford Forest! OH, the good General was the one who created the KKK. OH, for the good old days of lynching when darkies knew their place!

Spies For Peace?

There are moments when one wonders exactly what President Obama even knows about the spies he employs. There is one truth in all discussions concerning how and why the National Security Agency spies on Americans, on Russians, on Chinese, on ISIS, and, heck, even on our allies in Europe. One is left wondering if our President knows about this spying, and, if he does not, why the heck does he not know! French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are sort of peeved that their friend, their ally, their dinner companion, allows the NSA to spy on leaders in Europe.

OH well, President Obama will issue the “apology,” and ensure one and all that no harm was intended. After all, the NSA runs the show in Washington D.C. It decides who is “the enemy,” and whose mail should be checked. My only question is–“does the NSA also check the mail of Barack Obama?”

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines from the world press along with our comments.

Sweden, Local: “Man Arrested For Kiling Bull”

Bullshit!

France, Connexion: “Banner Cherry Season”

I assume we are talking about fruit,not women.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

Our feelings about the American Congress?

Australia,Canberra Times: “Time To Sell Children”

I’ll take one blond and two black haired ones.

“Iran, Tehran Times: “Who Is Listening?”

When it comes to needs of the poor–no one.

“I’m Hurt, Help Me!”

It was Tuesday and this is in modern America. Walter Williams DeLeon, age 45, was waving a towel and apparently seeking aid and assistance from the police. As he approached a police car, the cops decided that he was “approaching them in an aggressive manner.” So, what else to do but blast away at this threatening man? They did shout before shooting, “drop the gun.” There is a problem, if one does NOT have a gun it is rather difficult to drop what one does not possess.

Some police now believe that he was injured and in distress. Oh,after the shooting they placed handcuffs on his hand as he lay there bleeding.

Only in America do police ASSUME that any act by a person represents a “THREAT” to their safety. The man must have been hurt and the towel was simply being used to halt some bleeding. The good news is that he was a white man which goes to prove that cops are an equal opportunity group.

Wal-Mart Takes A Stand

There is good news from Wal-Mart. It has decided to take a stand about the Confederate flag. “We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the Confederate flag.”Great, this will now end any and all problems confronting African Americans in this land. Now, how about:

1. Removing all weapons from Wal-Mart stores.

2. Paying African Americans-and other workers decent salaries.

3. Promoting African American workers to higher status jobs.

4. Providing economic support for its workers to obtain further education.

I have a hunch these steps would go a long way to making this land a safer and happier place for one and all-including African Americans.

Donald Trumps Republicans!

The Donald man had a few words of wisdom to offer other candidates seeking the Republican nomination for president. He made clear, “they are all dumb, dumb, I said, and they are all stupid,just dumb and stupid.” I have to admit that Donald finally made an intelligent comment about events in the world. He went on to explain his approach to handling world problems.

“I am a great general, a great one. I will handle ISIS. I will bomb them, then I will surround them and wipe them out. Wipe them out” When asked if he would use American troops,the Great General commented: “NO, I will surround ISIS and wipe them out.”

After wiping out ISIS,Donald intends to build a wall on our border with Mexico,and “I will make them pay the cost of this wall.” And, so on and so on.

My dream is to listen into a conversation between Donald and Vladimir Putin.

Putin Talks Of Peace

OK, the time has come to accept that Vladimir Putin has but one goal in mind-peace and prosperity for the people of Ukraine. Once again, in talks with French President Hollande and German Chancellor Merkel, the GREAt LEADER of the Russian people wanted all to understand that he has but one goal for Ukraine and that is peace and prosperity for all. So, what does Putin desire?

1. Ukraine government should lay down its arms to prove they want peace.

2. Ukraine government should give money to those living in eastern Ukraine.

3. Ukraine government should give political power to those living in eastern Ukraine.

Now, these are simply a demonstration the government of Ukraine really wants peace.

Sounds fair to me.

“Reform” A Word Shouted By All

There is one word that is shouted by any and all those engaged in the public arena–REFORM. If I want to change a school curriculum to ensure students learn about the beauty of Capitalism, just say, ‘REFORM.” If I seek to reduce Food Stamps for those in need, just argue this is a REFORM that will benefit them. If I want to make difficult the right to vote, make clear that you are simply engaged in a fight to REFORM voting procedures.

One constantly hears this word expressed when the topic of wha to to do with education is being discussed. REALITY: If Rip van Winkle awoke from his two hundred year sleep and entered a classroom all would be familiar–an adult in front of a blackboard, children copying what the adult says, and a test to repeat back what they heard.

REFORM of government is simply an expression to reduce services to those in need. It justifies less money for the poor,and fewer services for our veterans.

I DO long for the day when REFORM actually entails creating NEW approaches to dealing with our problems. Anyway, how about engaging in REFORM to rebuild our infrastructure?

On Flags

There are moments in America when our supposed leaders become caught up in arguing about unimportant issues in order to ignore what is important. The issue of the hour in South Carolina has become that of the Confederate flag. Governor Niki Haley has announced that she now favors getting rid of this flag of infamy and thus things can get back to being OK in the state. Frankly, she will not suffer any political consequences for this act of bravery. She has now proved that she is on the side of the fight for equality in South Carolina.

1. She now does not have to address issues of police misbehavior to African Americans.

2. She can now ignore issues related to health care.

3. She can now ignore issues related to voting laws that impact the right of Blacks to vote.

Niki is now a hero who has done something. Something of scant importance to the lives of African Americans.

Sing Dixie Forever!

There are still millions in southern regions of this land who continue to honor, respect, and love the gallant Confederate Army of the Civil War. Heck, there are Southern states which continue flying the banner of traitors and disloyal Americans. There is no doubt that Dylann Roof was a loyal son to the Confederacy who wore the flag of disloyalty with pride. He is still convinced that America would be a wonderful land if only the South had won, and those darkies will still working fields of cotton.

His Manifesto simply was still one more version of melancholy for the good old days of either slaver or segregation when a white man was able to protect his women against-THEM! No need to repeat his words of defiance as to why he had to shoot down innocent people–they were black, he was white,and they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Like so many in this land, South, West, East, Mr.Roof believes that black men spend their days attempting to figure out how to rape a mother, daughter or sister who is white.

Frankly, nothing new about Dylann. He simply represents what a few million people in this land desire -blacks back to being subordinate to them!

And always remember–they have God on their side!
