The good news from Iraq these days is that one knows the day before what will be the news from Iraq tomorrow. A majority of people in Iraq are Shiites and a minority are Sunni Muslims. Under Saddam Hussein, the Sunnis ran Iraq. Now, that he is gone, Shiites are making up for lost time with discrimination against Sunnis, including arresting Sunni political leaders. So, one can daily expect the following:
Yesterday in Baghdad, 67 dead and 87 wounded in a Shiite marketplace. Later in the day, a suicide bomber wearing a vest blew himself up and murdered 17 Shiites and wounded a few dozen. We can expect tomorrow that suicide bomber will blow himself up in a Sunni marketplace area.
And, so on, and so on, and so on. Will this madness ever end?

It increasingly becomes clear that Donald Trump has hit upon a novel approach to seeking the presidency. Ordinarily, those who are candidates for president lay out their ideas and defend those ideas during the campaign. But, Donald has discovered a new twist to seeking the presidency. He recently told Bill O’Reilly, “I’ve been pro-life. I was a meek fashioned pro-choice, but I’ve become pro-life.” He promised to appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court.
I assume that Donald will now campaign for:
I am for lower taxes on the middle class before I decide to favor higher taxes.
I used to be for gun restrictions, but these days, I just say: “Blast away and watch out”
OK, so I screwed some broads, but from now on I’m for one broad at a time.
OK, so I said some nasty comments about Hispanics and wanted to build a Great Wall, but from now on I want everyone to eat tacos made by Hispanics and I want to build a bridge from Mexico to the US.
OK, so I once hugged and kissed Hillary, but from now on, I’m going to screw that bitch until she shouts, “I surrender!”
Oh, and I will visit a mosque.
