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.

Why Islamophobia?

I am now 84 years old and during my existence on this planet have been compelled to endure fear of many forms of evil. As a child I had nightmares of Christian Nazis who would come to America and murder this little Jewish boy. Then came the Russian Communists who soon were followed by the North Korean and Chinese Communists. In all honesty, I never feared any Muslims, after all they had not murdered six million Jews as had European Nazis. So, today, I am told to fear Muslims since they are out to murder and kill. Actually, if one added up all the humans killed by Muslims since 2001 that total would be less than the number of people killed in one week by Russian or Chinese Communists.

So, why this wild fear of Muslims?

1. Muslim youth in Europe are trapped in poor paying jobs that offer no dream of a good life.

2. Too many Muslims are living in ghettoes where they live in slums and lack contact with non-Muslims.

3. Muslims wind up doing the dirty jobs of European societies.

4. Muslims are not attending integrated schools. Then again, European schools have done a terrible job of aiding Muslim students succeed.

5. Muslim imams have failed to teach the meaning of their religion. They have allowed imams of hate to take over the religious education of youth.

6. Throw in social media which makes hate easier to spread.

7. And, definitely add the name of George Bush, Don Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney to the list of those who help create terror groups. P

Put these factors together and one winds up with hate, violence and fear.

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!

Nigeria Has Bad Luck Of The Draw!

I assume that any nation whose leader has the name, Good Luck, would feel confident they are in the hands of someone who is the right person in the right place at the right time. Nigeria is the most populous nation in Africa, and now has the largest gross national product. Its history resulted in a division within the country. Most people living in northern Nigeria are Muslim while most in the south are Christian. For the most part, presidents of Nigeria have tended to be from the Christian sector of the nation. During the past several years a group known as Boko Haram has been terrorizing the entire country, although most of its murders are in Muslim areas. These honker Muslims insist that “Western Education” is the source of all evil in the world. Just during the past year, they kidnapped over 300 Christian girls who were then given Muslim husbands. The current estimate is they murdered over four thousand people last year.

Nigeria does have an army. In fact, the Nigerian army is loaned out to the UN for peace keeping projects with the government and Army officers keeping most of the money. In a country of 170,000,000 people,the 25,000 Boko Bums have more weapons and fire power than the entire army of Nigeria. It is a rare event when Nigerian soldiers get their entire pay, let alone modern weapons with which to fight. Goodluck Jonathan is again running for president so he and his buddies can continue stealing money from oil revenues and not creating a modern army.

I think the people of Nigeria need a leader whose name is: Badluck Jonathan!

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!

Republicans Are Just Republicans

Well, the RepublicanParty is back on top and in charge of our legislature. It has been a few years since this group of outstanding political leaders are in a position that enables them to take responsibility for what happens in the United States of America. I am able to accurately predict the future of what will occur this year:

1. President Obama will ask Congress to fund the cost of community college education.

2. The Republican party will deny this request on grounds that when they were going to college no one paid the cost of their tuition.

3. We can expect Ted Cruz to filibuster against what Ted Cruz voted for the day before.

4. President Obama will urge some sort of tax increase which will lead Democrats on Wall Street to complain that Adolf Hitler is back in power and seeking to murder all Jews.

5. John Boehner will have a heart attack on the floor of the House of Representatives after engaging in a conversation with Tea Party members. He just cannot handle being called a “Communist.”

6. Mitch McConnell will smile which will cause the members of the Senate to fall asleep.

7. The US Congress will set a record for the most laws passed that were denied due to a veto.

8. Oh, Michelle Obama will urge Congressmen to change their diets and eat more salads.

Fights I Would Love To Observe

The other day while having a cup of coffee my mind wandered into fantasy and I pondered fights that I would love to witness.

1. Sarah Palin vis Vladimir Putin in a wrestling match.

2. John Boehner vs Mitch McConnell is a fight over which one can utter the most platitudes.

3. Ted Cruz vs Rush Limbaugh in a contest as to who can shit the most.

4. Marco Rubio vs any Castro brother in speeches as to who best loves Cuba.

5. Fox News commentators vs a machine that contains factual information.

6. Pope Francis vs a right wing Cardinal in a praying duel as to who best represents what God desires.

7. Harvad law student Barack Obama vs an old fashioned political boss debating how to reach the average American.

8. ISIS vs al-Qaeda in a shooting match for who is the best terrorist.

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!

McConnell Takes A Stand!

Senator Mitch McConnell told the world that he is digging in his feet, and standing up for justice, prosperity and the American people. So, what exactly does the new majority leader of the United States Senate intend to do for the American people? “We need to do everything we can to rein in the regulatory onslaught which is the principle reason that we haven’t had the kind of bounce back after the 2008 recession.” Oh, during the past year over two million new jobs were created by the dude from Africa. Oh, our economy is moving ahead, but the real problem according to the wizard from Kentucky is that President Barack Obama insists that our nation address issue of pollution that will impact the future. So, what then is the agenda of Mitch and his Republican buddies?

1. He intends to fight to the death for more oil. Thus he supports construction of the Keystone pipe line from Canada that will add to our existing supply of oil.

2. “People are tired of inaction. They want to act and put a lot of people back to work.”

Has anyone informed this idiot that gas prices are heading for $2 a gallon? Has anyone informed the Republican party that the world is awash in oil? Oh, I forgot, constructing this pipeline might provide a few thousand temporary jobs. Just what America needs-more temporary jobs?
