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

A boss at a meeting speaks with the voice of truth.

Sometimes the short road takes a long time to reach a desired destination.

On arriving late one must wave hands in greeting.

To write is to live forever.

If I wipe the table clean then I am a job destroyer.

Old time gangsters were more interesting than modern gangsters.

I dislike looking up to tall men. Makes me feel short.

In my childhood I wore a white tee shirt in the summer.

Sometimes, to glance backwards is to see ahead.

One must accept with grace the reality there are things we will never know.

Banish Winter TV Blues

The onset of winter leads to a sense of the blues in those areas of the nation in which people must endure winter weather and snow. We offer some tips on how society can end the blues for those who must endure this form of despair:

1. No more TV shows in which Mike Huckabee declaims about the evil un-American folks who live on the west or east shows. Last night on Jon Stewart he insisted those on the coasts are not really true Americans. Sorry Mike, but a few million men from the east and west coasts risked their lives in World War II, the Korean War, and the war in Vietnam. Exactly what did the chubby minister of God ever do to help save America?

2. An end to Beyonce and her demanding body. Frankly, she turns me off with her pseudo sense of power.

3. I would be so happy watching a TV show in which Rupert Murdoch explains why he created Fox News for we Americans. Or, he can head home to Australia and pester those people.

4. Allow me to watch a football game on TV without having to hear those inane comments from the blond haired woman on the sidelines who thinks she knows something about a game she never played.

5. I would so love to go to the movies and watch a film in which there was an issue other than than walking zombies and ghouls.

Oh well, at least the snow is pleasant to look at.

Putin Hates Charlie

There are many demonstrations in areas of Russia in which Muslims live. In a nation that refuses to allow demonstrations about human rights and even sends to jail those who dare protest about anything, the nation of Russia these days is witnessing thousands of people in the street yelling and screaming about those horrible people in France who dared to draw a cartoon. In the city of Grozny, capital of Chechnya, a land in which thousands of Muslims were murdered by Russian troops, thousands flocked to the streets in order to demand another beheading or murder of cartoonists. They carried signs insisting “I Love My Prophet Muhammed.” A Russian spokesperson said: “you and I see how European journalists and politicians utter false slogans about free speech and democracy.” Yes, in Putin Russia where thousands of Muslims have been killed by the government, Muslims are upset at cartoons in France!

There is something horribly wrong among Muslims in Russia who are joining hands with the devil who murdered Muslims. I have a hunch a few cartoons is more helpful to the cause of Muslims than aiding Putin in his campaign against freedom in Russia.

Karl Marx Was Right!

The demise of the Soviet Union led most people to conclude the ideas of Karl Marx were wrong for the world. A brutal dictatorship which murdered millions of innocent people and stifled any ability of people to inhabit a world of ideas resulted in few accepting the precepts of Karl Marx. First of all, Marx never urged establishment of a leadership that killed members of the working class nor did he urge gulags and death camps for poor people. The society created by Joseph Stalin was NEVER the dream of Karl Marx. Unfortunately, the ideas of Marx were never followed by those who claimed to be his intellectual children. Let’s examine the record of what Karl Marx actually DID say:

1. He forecast that wealthy capitalists would dominate the economic life of society. FACT: The latest count is that 1% of the wealthiest humans have more wealth than the other 99%.

2. He predicted the gradual economic decline of the middle class. This is exactly what is happening in capitalist societies whether they be the United States of America or Greece.

3. He predicted that workers would feel alienated from their daily work. They would cease having pride in what they do. Just ask those working in fast food places or those in a part time job.

4. He predicted that religion would be an opiate that blinds people from reality. Check your daily newspaper or web site for confirmation of what he said.

5. He predicted that wealthy people would control government. Anyone who disagrees?

Karl Marx urged a society in which there was distribution of wealth based upon the principle of “from each according to his ability.” Sounds good to me!

Gun Rights For Kids!

I admit my frustration with the current leadership of the National Rifle Association. I assumed those leading this great American institution would support the rights of Americans to possess a weapon of their choice. I was shocked and amazed when police in Evansville, Indiana took away a gun from an American citizen and there was not a word of protest from the NRA! A mother in that town who is divorced and going steady with Michael Barnes, a God fearing wonderful son of America, decided that her two year old son was ready to play with guns. So, he had the boy place a 40 caliber gun in his mouth. Remember, it is NEVER too early to get our red blooded boys familiar with the working of a gun. OK, so Michael has committed a few robberies, so did many great American gun heroes like Dillinger or Jesse James.

What is so wrong with allowing a two year old to play with a gun? Once he understands that guns are great to suck on, the next step is he will be ready to fire this weapon of love. So, where is the NRA on this issue? We need to rewrite the 2nd Amendment to read: “Every American citizen from birth on has the right to defend him or herself with a weapon of their choice!

Bibi Netanyahu Is One Tough Dude!

Let me make clear that the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestinians is the result of missed opportunities by both Arab nations, Palestinian leaders and heads of the Israel government. ALL sides in t his conflict come close to an agreement and then walk away for one reason or another. No one in the Middle East has clean hands. But, this is the current reality: Israel has the power to reach an agreement, and the Palestinian Authority must be strong in order to respond to proposals for resolution of the conflict. Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has decided to play the hate card in order to prove to Israelis that he is a strong man who does not bow before adversity. His government announced that it would not provide the Palestinian Authority of tax revenues which means this government would be out $127 million in order to run the society over which in theory it governs. Israel President Reuven Rivlin attempted to make clear that for the safety of Israel, the “Palestinian Authority must remain functioning.” The United States State Department “conveyed to the Israelis that freezing tax revenues is an action that raises tensions.”

What would occur if the Palestinian Authority ceased to exist?

1. Israel would be responsible for the daily government of this area.

2. Palestinians would, de facto, become part of Israel. Does this mean they would have the right to vote?

A Palestine without its own government is the nightmare of Israel! Wake up Israelis to reality!

THINGS THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN IN 2015

Following are events that will not occur in 2015.

10. Fox News will run an expose about the growing disparity in America between the wealthy and middle class.

You have my word on these non-events!

Some Germans Fear Those Muslims!

As I recall from my childhood, during the 1930s a prevalent fear within Germany was about all those Jews and people from eastern Europe who represented an illness that threatened the health of people in Western Europe, particularly those in Germany. Poor Adolf had to spend his waking hours figuring out ways to prevent the “vermin” and decadent hordes seeking to enter Germany get a foothold. At least today, most Germans are not worried about them Jews or east Europeans. Today, thank God, they have a new fear of having the blood of Germans be polluted by filth. People from Africa and the Middle East are seeking to escape from war and poverty and are willing to do the dirt jobs in Western Europe.

Felix Menzel, age 29, is really worried, not only for his fellow Germans, but for all of Europe. “I see a serious threat coming our way from outside Europe. I feel especially pessimistic about the overpopulation of Africa and Asia. And, I believe that what is unfolding in Iraq and Syria at the moment is a clear harbinger of the first global civil war.” Poor Felix is worried about “Europe’ weakening soul.” I do feel for Felix. Then again, if these vermin don’t come to Germany, who picks up the trash and works their butts off in dirty filthy jobs? Hey, Felix, why not get a job hauling trash and in that way prevent one of these dirty people from working in your beautiful nation?

Drone Always Gets Its Target

For some reason, a cop who is standing about ten feet from some man without a gun can not fire his weapon and hit a leg or arm, he has to blast away at the heart. So, it is good news that a drone up in the sky can not only spot a person in a house and deliver a blast that tears apart the house without damaging the silverware or even slightly wounding another person. According to our experts, there are few times when a drone hits an innocent person. Over the weekend in Pakistan an American drone fired away and killed 31 militants. NO, it did not kill “some,” it killed exactly 31 militants. If you doubt this accuracy, just ask the drone. You see, the drone can see all very clearly, and just by gazing at a face it knows which of these Muslim dudes is the extremist one who has a date with death today. So, who am I to doubt that exactly 31 “militants” died in this raid.

I assume when these “accurate” attacks take place there is no innocent person sleeping in the corner of the room. Nor, when the bomb blasts the room, it does not disturb the baby sleeping in a crib just a room away. Every independent study of drone attacks has uncovered evidence that HUNDREDS of innocent people have been killed by drone attacks. Perhaps, if drones are so accurate they can be placed in charge of training police how to hit an arm or leg rather than a heart?

So, What With Nigeria?

I am old enough to remember the time when except for Liberia and Ethiopia all areas of Africa below the Sahara were under the control of European colonial powers. There were young African men and women who argued for the end of colonialism and restoration of traditional African ways of life and government. They insisted that all ills currently faced by people in Africa stemmed from the evils of colonialism. Just turn over power to Africans and those evils would disappear. Today, not an African nation is ruled by a colonial power. Unfortunately, the dream has not been transformed into a world of peace and prosperity. Nigeria is the most populous nation on the African continent. It has enormous deposits of oil, which if employed to develop the economy would produce an era of prosperity. However, Nigeria is ruled by a group of kleptomaniacs who used the wealth for their own selfish purposes. Imagine a nation of millions being pushed around by a few thousand members of Boko Haram?

The so-called army of Nigeria is composed of soldiers whose pay is stolen by their officers. These “soldiers” lack something called, military equipment. They have constantly rebelled because they are sent into battle against Boko Haram without proper military equipment. It is time for the people of Nigeria to demand an end to the “colonial rule” of its upper classes whose only goal is making money.
