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!!

Bill Maher Charged As Racist!

It is not usual for anyone to term the famous liberal fighting Bill Maher as anything other than a champion of the oppressed. He has a reputation for attacking bigots, he enjoys mocking the right wing conservative religious fanatics in America, so it was shocking during his recent Friday night show to have guest Ben Affleck deride Bill’s comments about Muslims as simply an example of “gross, racist and disgusting” observations on the Muslim religion. However, Bill insisted that his remarks were simply the words of a liberal who was defending rights of people to live in a free society.

The Bill Maher words that angered Affleck were: “Freedom of speech, freedom to practice any religion you want without fear of violence, freedom to leave a religion, equality for women, equality for minorities, equality for homosexuals, you try saying that in a Muslim world.” To be honest, these comments DO reflect what is happening within many Muslim societies. Of course, it is NOT happening among Muslims in many nations such as Indonesia or among Muslims in western nations or India. Of course, any generality opens the door for a response about hatred toward Muslims in Christian African nations.

What Bill did not note is that twenty years ago, Christians lived in peace within Iraq or Egypt or Syria. Something has happened during the past ten years to unleash this hatred. Did the United States play a role in this switch, that is a question?

Wahabbi Is The Problem!

ISIS continues on its murderous path, in Afghanistan, the Taliban are still alive and murdering people, but few Americans understand the force behind these killing groups is none other than our beloved ally, Saudi Arabia. The Taliban was originally created by the Pakistan secret intelligence working with vast amounts of money furnished by Saudi Arabia. The Saudi government is committed to the principles of the Wahabbi sect of the Muslim religion. Wahabbi imams preach the doctrine that all Western ideas are anti-Muslim, and it is the duty of a Muslim to murder these evil forces. The original young men who formed the Taliban had been educated in madrassa schools funded by Saudi Arabia. They were indoctrinated to fight all forms of Western thought and institutions.

Remember, that in 2014 women still cannot drive a car in Saudi Arabia. Bad people have their heads chopped off in Saudi Arabia. Any form of Christian worship is forbidden in Saudi Arabia. Children are taught that Western ideas are those who hate the Muslim religion. Saudi money continues to fund ISIS and other such groups. On one hand, we ask the Saudi government to aid in the fight against ISIS even though this group is being funded by Saudis! America must insist that Saudi Arabia cease any aid to fanatical Muslim groups.

The Saudi government had better remember that if ISIS enters their land, the first to have heads chopped off are leaders of Saudi Arabia!!

Ban The Veil, Save France!

The economic systems of many European nations have collapsed. France is suffering from a sputtering economy and there is widespread anger at its government. So, what is the solution to these problems, not only in France, but throughout the European Union– BAN THE VEIL! A French Muslim woman, known only as SAS, petitioned the European Court of Human Rights for the right to wear her veil. The nation of France made illegal the wearing of a veil in public due to reasons of national “safety.” The Court agreed with the view that if a woman wears a veil then safety of others is somehow under threat. Of course, people can own guns, but those weapons are required for “safety” of individuals. Heck, in America, a woman wearing a niqab receives ugly looks, but if a man with guns appears, people now feel safe.

The lawyer of SAS made clear, “her faith is an essential element of her existence, she is a devout believer and the wearing of the veil is fundamental to her life.” For SAS the wearing of a veil is HER decision. I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family and when we went to shul, women sat behind a curtain, separated from men. Somehow, we managed to live and no one felt frightened.

Some day it will be explained to me why wearing a veil is a greater threat to life than wearing guns!

Missouri Shows Signs Of Being Modern

I have spent nearly fifty years in the state of Missouri as an unhappy stranger wandering through a land that contains people who prefer inhabiting the world of medieval Europe. Missouri is nicknamed the “Show Me State” and in rural Missouri they so enjoy believing that God supervises their every action. Unfortunately, the “God” of their choice insists there not be improper behavior. Heck, it was not until about t en years ago that some small towns forbid high school proms on grounds that boys and girls would be holding one another too close. Anyway, a Missouri Judge finally informed the government of this state that gays and lesbians had the right to marry. Judge Dale ruled that bans on gay marriage were “wholly irrational” and lacked any “logical reason.”

Attorney General Koster, he who has been charged with spending money on hookers, is looking into this matter.

1. Missouri folk believe people should marry.

2. Males want to marry.

3. Females want to marry.

For God’s sake, just let them MARRY!

Life Before ISIS

It is difficult these days getting through 24 hours without encountering predictions the world will shortly collapse because there are 30,000 black clad guys in the desert seeking to kill every American before midnight arrives. The assumption of Fox News pundits is America is confronting a new threat to its very existence from this group of terrorists. So, I was wondering, what was the situation prior to their arrival on the scene?

1. The Iraq government under Prime Minister Maliki had caused havoc and disunity within the country by persecuting Sunnis. Bombs were being exploded every day of the week.

2. Saudi Arabia was chopping off heads at least twice a month. And, no one protested!

3. Syria was claiming the lives of thousands each month and over 2,000,000 had fled.

4. There were terrorists in Somalia who bombed and bombed. They even set off bombs in Nairobi.

5. President Sisi in Egypt was killing hundreds of members of the Brotherhood, and locking up thousands.

6. Libya was in chaos.

7.Boko Haram was kidnapping hundreds of young girls and murdering at will.

I will halt here since I could get into the situation in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Everything OK In Russia

I understand many Americans are upset with the great leader of Russia our beloved, All-Wise Vladimir Putin, but when one listens to his words of wisdom, it is clear that the Mother nation is set on the right course of action. Putin made clear to America and European nations that sanctions against Russia simply will not work. According to Vladimir it is “stupid” thinking to believe any outside force can damage his work. He informed the world that “We truy want a country that is strong and open to the world.” In other words, Russia is on a solid economic foundation, and nothing other nations can do will impact the brilliant success of his work.

Of course, there are a few-minor- issues. Inflation is now at 8%, economic growth has reached the high level of -ZERO. The government will have to cut spending by $25 billion, and the need for modern technology for oil development is encountering a few kinks. But, not to worry, there is always Vladimir to cheer people up with a pep talk. I wonder how one eats his words for dinner?

Ebola Has Become American

Well, it finally happened, a case of Ebola was uncovered in America. A man is now in a hospital in Texas, and it is clear that he became infected while in Africa. Just imagine the life of a typical American. One day terrorists are beheading people, the next day Vladimir Putin is killing people, US planes are dropping bombs, Afghanistan is still a mess, and there is ONE man who has Ebola. I await Fox News handling this item of news. Look ahead to this approach:

1. Before Barack Obama became President of the USA, there was not a single case of Ebola in our land.

2. How comes the Secret Service allowed Ebola to enter this nation?

3. Barack Obama makes trips around the world, isn’t this dangerous to the health of America? Who knows which germs return from those foreign voyages?

4. Before passage of ObamaCare, there was not a single case of Ebola. One plus one equals–EBOLA!

5. We need to arm Americans. If any American spots an Ebola case, just shoot the dude and save AMERICA!

VOTE REPUBLICAN AND END EBOLA!!
