Boko Haram Continues Being Bonkers

The American media continues reporting horrors from the Middle East while ignoring greater death and destruction in Nigeria. It is estimated that ISIS has murdered about four thousand. Boko Haram in Nigeria has slaughtered at least 7,000. The latest example was murdering 145 Muslims who were praying to conclude the holiday of Ramadan. Let me get this straight, a band of Muslims murdered 145 MUSLIMS who were engaged in the act of prayer!

My confusion stems from the failure of any leading Muslim clerics to condemn such brutality to fellow Muslims. Where are Muslim leaders? Why no Freedom Marchers gathering for the protection of fellow Muslims? Where is the Martin Luther King for Muslims? Or, how about a Nelson Mandela for Africans outside of South Africa??

OOPS, I Apologize!

Bahram Radan is an Iranian actor who is known as the Brad Pitt of Iran. He has thousands of twitter followers. So,Bahram sent an email which sort of caused some problems.”The United States supreme court ruling that same-sex marriage is legal was historic on a scale of the end of slavery–from Lincoln to Obama.” I guess he was caught up in the moment and forgot for a moment that he was in Iran. The reaction of the government and conservatives was immediate and firm.

The conservative newspaper, Kayan, denounced his twitter as a twitter too far. Bahram soon realized that reality meant sort of denouncing what he wrote. “What was published as my opinion on the US Supreme Court was a mistake.” In America rich guys like Sheldon Adelson can force apologies, while in Iran it is the clerics. I guess no lashes for Bahram.

Why I Will Vote For Donald?

I understand the Jon Stewart and others poke fun and ridicule at Donald Trump,but this blogger wants the Donald Man to become our next president. Why?

1. He definitely will “tell it as it is.” No more secrets in Washington D.C.

2. He will be the first red headed president.

3. At least everyone in both parties agrees that he does not make sense. Thus, the beginning of political cooperation.

4. He definitely will get Hispanics to realize they MUST vote.

5. He definitely will get women to VOTE.

6. We finally will have a president who is dumber than those in Congress.

7. After Trump, Americans will finally understand the need to become interested in politics.

8. His presidency will create a job boom for comedians.

9. I doubt if any ISIS leader would enjoy being anywhere near Americans with this nut case who makes them come across as normal.

So, vote for Donald!

The Lonely Women

There was a recent story in The New York Times about a 24 year old woman whose life was rather lonely. She lacked female friends and was not dating. One day she surfed social media and encountered some nice men and women who were anxious to become her friend. During the following months, each one of her lonely days were spent in the company of her new friends. They even introduced her to a new religion-Islam. She was slowly taught its meaning, she was coached and supported. They sent flowers to her house, they sent candy and cards that wished a happy birthday.

She soon became one of those young women who head for Syria to find meaning in their lives, a husband and a family. THIS is the power of ISIS, It offers those living in a world lacking leaders who inspire, it adds friendship and love to those without love. The beheading comes later, unfortunately, much, much later. The question is: why do so many in the West lack meaning in their lives? Why do so many walk away from Christianity and seek solace elsewhere? Unfortunately, there are untold millions of lonely people in our lives. Fortunately, for Catholics they now have an inspiring leader.

Social media is a hydra headed beast.

Who CaresAbout Environment?

Just about any article that includes any reference to Justice Anthony Scalia includes a line about his wonderful mind that allegedly is the hallmark of this brilliant legal scholar. Justice Scalia wrote the majority opinion in a decision dealing with efforts to curb pollution. The Environment Protection Agency has been seeking to impose limits as to how business enterprises can pollute. Justice Scalia used the argument that imposing such regulations would impair profits of business. In other words any equation dealing with pollution must take care not to impose restrictions as to how much business enterprises can earn in profit.

This from a man who claims to be a legal scholar. If the issue is preserving this planet,then profits be damned! The only equation worth a damn these days is the one which places survival of the planet first and first and first!

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

My dream is to hear the conversation between God and Donald Trump.

The Republican nightmare is having Trump on a stage with other presidential candidates.

There is no question that Donald Trump is the Christmas gift to all gag writers.

I wonder how Donald talks with his children?

Does Donald say, “I trump you” while playing cards?

I would so enjoy hearing a conversation between Trump and Justice Scalia.

I assume Donald is the one who says, “God Bless You.” That is, to God.

God Hates??

Having nothing better to do today, I decided to have a long conversation with the Big Guy up in he sky; After all, he spends a heck of a lot of time with Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz so why not a few moments with me? God made perfectly clear what He hates:

1. He does hate those who claim to speak with him, given that he mascot off any phone connection with humans.

2. God really does not care for the other God that Republicans claim is on their side.

3. God hates people asserting ideas that He never uttered.

4. God does not like those who prattle on and on about family values, does anyone know how many ideas about “Family” there are in the universe??

5. God is getting mighty close to sending a thunder bolt to wipe out the blond haired idiot women who never cease talking on Fox News.

6. Frankly, God is getting close to hating his creation of this strange planet called–EARTH!

Same Sex Fears

The United States Supreme Court made a decision and Republican candidates for president–all fifty or so of them, also made a decision. Not a single one agreed with the Supreme Court. Mike and the two Ricks blasted away at the perfidy and tyranny of the Supreme Court which is imposing its will upon the American people. Let me get this clear:

1. The Hobby Lobby decision of the Supreme Court was hailed by each and every Republican as the right decision. No claims of a tyrannical court. I wonder why.

2. When the Supreme Court rules by 5-4 decisions that allow denial of voting rights, Republicans join in the Chorus about that is what our Founding Fathers wanted.

So, what is different about same sex in our land? It is against Christianity and Judaism and Islam. Or, at least what ministers of those faits desire. Why?

1. Firs they allowed men to marry women and women to marry women. What next? Dogs to marry their masters?

2. Just remember that this court could allow male donkeys to make out with male donkeys!

Would you want your daughter to marry a monkey?

Recep The Great

Turkish President Recep Erdogan is the Vladimir Putin of the Middle East. He is convinced that glory awaits his every decision. During the past few years this man who only knew success for years has gradually lost the confidence of most people in Turkey. They are tired of his grandstanding and assuming all power in the land. At elections last month, a majority turned down the Turkish windbag leaving him with the need for allies in order to form a government. He so desires to be respected –no, feared– by other nations.

“I am adducing the world. We will never allow a state to be formed in northern Syria, south of our border.” To translate his remarks in English. He opposes the desire of Kurds to have their own nation. This idea has led him to favor ISIS gaining power since this group hates Kurds. Sorry, Recep, the world does not agree with you. And, there is evidence, neither does the Turkish army!

Behead Your Drinking Buddy?

Every so often behavior by those seeking to behead infidels sort of gets confusing. Yasmin Salhi, a Muslim Frenchman decided to have a few drinks with his boss and then as sort of a dessert to chop off his head. He drove a truck,he hung around with some guys and came across as just another working stiff seeking to make a living. He was born in France, educated in France, but at this point in time decided that driving a truck loaded with explosives into chemical warehouse would really make his day a notable one.

The only sign of change in his life is the appearance of a beard. But, heck, walk along any street in America and there are bearded men. So,wha led to the change? Frankly, I do not have a clue. Is there something in the water in France that sets off ordinary people and transforms them into beheaders?
