It’s Friday, Let’s Hate Muslims!

There are about one billions six hundred million members of the Muslim faith scattered around the world. There are about 200,000,000 located in what we term to be the Middle East. The horrible ISIS group consists of about 30,000, that is thousand, not millions. They have conducted themselves with hatred and brutality, but the sum total of people killed is under ten thousand. People in Australia are upset at this behavior and have decided that since SOME Muslims are brutal murderers it means that all Muslims behave in this manner. Many Australians are particularly upset at the sight of Muslim women wearing a hijhab. There have been dozens of attacks upon Muslim women in Melbourne and Sydney. Females have been insulted, things thrown at them because they happen to wear a hijab.

This is simply hysteria gone mad. Exactly how does a woman wearing something on her face impact the life of anyone? Of course, the number of women who wear a hijab is, perhaps, under 5% of all Muslim women in Australia. Muslim lawyer, Lydia Shelly made clear: “As a Muslim woman, I am very concerned that this is impacting the rights and freedom of movement for Muslim women.” There are even examples of Muslim women with children having coffee thrown upon them. So nice that Australians behave in such a Christian manner!

So, What Is Middle Eastern Policy?

With each passing day it becomes obvious there is no coherent foreign policy in place within the Middle East. Let me quickly explain what is happening:

1. American and their “allies” are bombing ISIS.

2. It does not require great intelligence to hide when planes appear.

3. ISIS soldiers retreat to safe places, watch the bombing and then get back on their tanks.

4. For some reason, ISIS soldiers are better equipped with weapons and tanks than their opponents.

5. Turkey refuses to do a damn thing about ISIS other than allowing terrorists to cross over into Syria.

6. There are few, if any, examples in history that bombing destroys soldiers who are well armed.

Question to President Obama:

What is bombing does not halt ISIS, then what?

Or,

What are long term goals of American foreign policy in the Middle East?

Broken Windows Leads To Broken Bodies!

There is a theory concerning how to prevent crime which has dominated the thinking of American police during the past twenty years. It is termed: “broken windows.” The essence of this thinking is that if police allow criminals to break a window during a crime it establishes a precedence for them to go on to higher levels of crime. Halt broken windows, and then crime will decrease. The result of this theory leads to halting young men on the streets, frisking them or watching out for minor issues such as whether or not a young man is smoking marijuana in public. Marcel Hamerl was walking down a street in New York City when accosted by a policeman who challenged him. He accused the 17 year old of breaking the law and then proceeded to knock out the boy with one blow. As the boy lay on the ground he muttered: “Mister, it was just a cigarette, just a cigarette.”

Naturally, the boy is under arrest. He might go to jail. Each year in jail costs the city of New York about $30,000. Why is anyone halted who smokes anything? So what if a 17 year old boy smokes marijuana is public. How does that create crime? If smoking marijuana was a crime, then half of Wall Street men would be in jail!

Another Holocaust, Another Silence

It is now an accepted part of the school curriculum in America to expose students to the horror of the Holocaust. Children learn about Anne Frank, they are taught that nations stood by while six million Jews were murdered and why it is important never again to allow such slaughter of the innocent. During the 1990s, the US under President Clinton did not lift a single finger to prevent the brutal murder of over 500,000 people in Rwanda. Oops, years later President Clinton admitted he could have taken action to prevent that slaughter. At this moment, ISIS forces are ready to enter the Syrian city of Kobani and murder thousands of Kurds in the city. Yes, the world is dropping bombs on bad guys, but that is not enough. Turkish President Erdogan continues his game of chicken by refusing to send in Turkish troops and overwhelm and destroy ISIS. Why?

Erdogan insists the real war in Syria should be against President Assad as well as against Kurds who have created their own nation. Yes, President Erdogan, troops on the ground are needed in addition to bombs from the air. After the slaughter, Kurds will explode in Turkey and then watch scenes firing into mobs in that country!

Same Sex Marriage Is Here To Stay

There are moments when a great change in history occurs, and few recognize the importance of change. The Supreme Court of the United States of America refused to discuss decisions by Appeals Courts throughout the land which made invalid state laws preventing marriage between same sex couples. There was no comment by the Supreme Court, there was no historic landmark decision, the Court simply remained silent and allowed lower courts to decide the change. Within days Nevada and Utah, two conservative states, have admitted that same sex couple can marry. At this moment, 35 states allow same sex marriage, and it is simply a mater of time before the remaining states come along.

This is a moment of joy and triumph. The Supreme Court recognized change. However, this same Supreme Court refuses to recognize change when it comes to wealth in America. Its ridiculous decisions that corporations are people is without precedent in judicial history. America will become a better place when the Supreme Court admits reality in our society about the growing power of money to decide elections.

THEY HAVE ARRIVED!!

The news is grim for Americans with news that “those people” have crossed the border and now live among the people of this fair land. No, I am not referring to zombies or ghouls, but to a force that is even more powerful than the Devil himself. Congressman Duncan Hunter of California informed the Fox News network that he has spoken with members of the Border Patrol and they have provided him with information that not even the President of the United States even knows. ISIS HAS ARRIVED! According to the former Marine officer, “ISIS is coming across the southern border. At least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the Mexican border in Texas. Nobody’s talking about it.”

Just do the math. If ten have been caught that means at least a hundred have not been captured. Look at the facts. Duncan Hunter once served in the US Marines and who better than a Marine knows when the bad guys are here. We offer some advice to those seeking safety:

1. If you see someone dressed in black, take out your gun and blast away. Better play it safe.

2. If you see some masked men this Halloween don’t give them candy, give them bullets in the heart.

3. You might head for the mountains and get a cabin ready for the end of America.

Just remember, if Fox News reports anything, it must be right!

Silence Of The Tiger!

About this time of the year is when the great Vladimir Putin offers the nation his outline of how the economy is growing and next year will be even witness even greater growth. Alas, that was then, and now is now. The all wise leader of Russia insists that Western sanctions have no impact upon the Russian economy. For some reason, he has decided not to offer an economic pep talk this year,and proceed with the silent treatment. I assume the following is behind this sudden silent from the man whose mouth never ceases to run.

Economic growth of Russia this year–0.2%

Economic growth for Russia next year–0.2% would be great.

Ruble has lost 20% of its value.

Oil prices are down and Russia needs high oil prices to survive.

Over a $100 billion has fled the country.

Perhaps, silence at this point is a wise decision!

Lazy Days And Nights In Cuba

Cuba is associated with being a land where the sun shines and people enjoy swimming or walking in a beautiful evening. Alas, such is not the case for some men who are in Cuba, but are not in Cuba. There is a place called Guantanamo Bay prison in which reside some men who are termed to be “terrorists.” Have they been convicted of any crime? Of course not, someone said they were terrorists and therefore who could doubt what some Afghan said twelve years ago in the heat of battle? These men have asked for a trial, but, alas, having a trial for a terrorist, according to Republicans, is simply aiding the cause of terrorism.

Abu Wa’el Dhiab has been on hunger strikes for years. He simply wants to be placed on trial. Of course, this is the United States of America in which people are entitled to a trial by jury. However, if someone sometime calls you a “terrorist” then you cease to be a human being, and certainly you are not an American. To live in America and not be an American, such is the legacy of the Afghan war of George Bush.

Death In Mexico Of Children

It is difficult to watch Fox News without coming away with concerns about hordes of children from Mexico headed for our borders in order to take away our jobs and live on the dole that is paid for by our taxes. It is rare for any American news outlet to focus on real issues facing the people of Mexico. During the past six years about 40,000 Mexicans have died as a result of drug lords or their own government. They have been murdered and the US media simply ignores this horror. In the Mexican town of Iguala, there is a college. Some students at a teacher college were upset about something and hijacked a bus as part of their protest. Of course, hijacking a bus is among the worst crimes known to humankind. Police in the community became upset at this juvenile behavior and blasted away at students murdering at least five.

The real story came later. College officials noted that about 57 students were missing from dormitories, and all they knew was students had been taking part in protests. Several hours later a mass grave was discovered with the bodies of at least twenty students. There is no doubt they were murdered by police. At least twenty more are still “missing.” THIS is the problem in Mexico, not a bunch of kids seeking to avoid getting murdered!!
