Death Of Rohingyas

Like many people who believe that social justice is needed for people all over the world, I was thrilled when social justice activists in Myanmar(Burma) fought against the military government which has stifled freedom in that land for over thirty years. It took time, it required leadership, and finally the beginning of freedom of speech and press is having a new birth in Burma. So, what has happened to this movement which argued that people had a fundamental right to be free from oppression for the political or religious rights? As all too often, those who begin the fight to end oppression, wind up in one way or another in imposing a new form of oppression on a different group.

The nation of Burma is mainly composed of those who are Buddhists. The government is run by Buddhists as well as the armed forces. During the past few years, the new government which promised a new era of democracy has launched one violent attack after another that is directed towards a Muslim minority known as the Rohingya. At least 100,000 are now in refugee camps after losing their property to mobs of Buddhists, and hundreds are dead as well as dozens of women being raped. I do not understand how people can struggle to create a democratic society and then turn around and become the oppressor? Latest stories indicate these refugees are now fleeing to Indonesia and Malaysia. Such are the fruits of democracy.

Let’s Solve The Syria Problem

We offer some possible solutions to the problem in Syria of ongoing mass killing.

1. Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin will face off in a wrestling match to decide the fate of Syria.

2. How about a Shoot Out at high noon between all rival armed forces. The last one standing takes over Syria.

3. President Assad gets the winning ticket to Mega Millions and an all paid vacation in Disneyland.

4. A shoot out between the best marksman in ISIS and the Syrian army. Winner takes all.

5. Evacuate all civilians and allow Israel to drop some of its atomic bombs on the entire country. Bibi would be delighted.

6. Send in the IDF, heck, they can heat Hamas in Gaza, why not beat all the bad people in Syria?

7. Is there a way to begin fracking in Syria and cause some earthquakes?

So, maybe you have some better ideas??

Of course, we could always send in General Ted Cruz and General Marco Rubio to clean up the mess.

THE TRUTH ABOUT OBAMA LAND

I spent a week watching Fox News in order to learn the truth about problems facing this nation. These are my conclusions:

1. Barack Obama hates white people and that includes his mom and grandparents.

2. If black guys do not wish to be shot on city streets, the solution if simple, do not walk on city streets.

3. If a black male sees a cop, drop to your knees, place hands behind back and, if possible, place handcuffs on your hands.

4. The major oppressed people in the USA are those who earn over a million dollars a year.

5. The reduction of taxes will solve all economic problems confronting this nation.

6. Ann Coulter is the modern version of Socrates. She knows the answers to all problems in the world.

7. If you are a blond bimbo, just contact Fox News. The only requirement to comment about politics is an ability to read words written in large capital letters.

8. Fox News requires its commentators not to know anything about what they discuss. Someone will supply the information to read.

9. The Obamas, Barack and wife, want to give OUR money to lazy blacks!

10. The Middle East was at peace until the black dude assumed office as president.

View From Tehran

The Republican party and quite a few Democrats are allied in opposition to the attempt to forge a negotiated resolution of Iran’s plans with nuclear energy. There is something ironic about the fact those who oppose the interim agreement with Iran within Iran come across with the same arguments being advanced in the US Senate. Shervin Ahmadi reporting from Tehran outlined what is happening in Iran. “Contrary to expectations, the interim agreement did not result in any euphoria among Iran’s leaders though they displayed guarded satisfaction. In the end, only the most hardline elements of the regime, those close to former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, expressed opposition.” On the other hand six famous movie directors expressed the view held by many young people, “There is no deal worse than no deal.”

Reality, “the economic situation is very difficult, Iranians are crushed by continual price rises and dissent is growing.” So, let me get this clear: those in the US Senate who oppose the interim agreement are in league with former President Ahmadinejad who was the one speaking about destroying Israel! I assume birds of a feather gather together.

King Salman Is No Solomon!

Once upon a time there was a king who lived in the desert. Frankly, no one paid any attention to this royal figure whose main wealth lay in the vast expanse of desert. If you wanted to cross the desert which he claimed to own, then you had to pay for the right to get thirsty in HIS desert. Well, one day some stranger found something under the sand, and by golly, it was black and it was liquid. The King soon had thousands of strangers coming to HIS desert seeking his approval to get the black liquid which was known as –OIL — from the sand. And, by golly, this King soon became the richest man in the entire world. Suddenly, this who paid no attention to him came seeking his blessing.

Such is the tale of the house of Saud. Today, there is a new King Saud who rules Saudi Arabia. He is very angry at the USA because it is talking with clerics from the Shiite muslims in Iran. King Salman is guardian of Mecca and expects one and all to bow before him and seek his blessing. The Shiites in Iran don’t give a damn for his oil or his heretic brand of the Muslim religion. So, King Salman is angry and is blasting away at renegade Shiite Muslims in Yemen. His approach is rather unusual. His planes just drop bombs and whoever dies, dies. A King of Saudi Arabia is raised to believe that his word is law ands anyone who opposes him gets some lashes, if they are lucky. King Salman will not talk with President Obama until he agrees with how to solve problems in the Middle East. For some reason, President Obama does not believe bombing civilians will solve any problem. So, King Saud refused to come to the Obama party at Camp David.

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

There is no doubt Republicans will win the comedy act next year.

When fools speak, then one knows one must be a Republican.

I wonder who Americans would be afraid of if ISIS did not exist?

Once Americans had hope, today they fear hope.

Always seek to travel beyond the stars.

Just remember that former Republicans were Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt or Dwight Eisenhower.

I so miss the remarks of Sarah Palin.

Jeb On Iraq

Jeb Bush wants one and all to know that he is proud of his brother, his father, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and all the others who gave us the Iraq war. OK, he does admit there were a few mistakes which should give assurance to those who lost sons, daughters, brothers, and parents in this war without end. “I would have authorized an invasion and so would Hillary Clinton. And so would just about everybody that was confronted by the intelligence they got.” There definitely, according to Jeb, were those few mistakes. “By the way, guess who thinks those mistakes gook place as well? George W.Bush.” I am so glad that George finally admitted those mistakes.

Of course, just about every political expert on the Middle East did NOT agree with those “intelligent agencies.” Anyone who had studied anything about the Middle East understood that Iran was confronted by two enemies, Afghanistan and Iraq. And, guess who got rid of the enemies of Iran? George W. Bush. Let us assume for a moment that Bush was right and Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. That would mean he had missiles. Not even the Bush crowd claimed those missiles could travel more than 500 miles. So, how could they threaten the US– if they actually existed?

George Bush authorized an invasion without any plan of what would happen after victory. George, please check the multitude of plans during WW II that detailed how an occupation would be carried out.

Jeb just proved that he is a true Bush!

What’s New In Republican Politics?

In order to speed up the process of this primary season which will last for over a year before we begin the event known as an election, we thought if might be interesting to offer a preview of what Republicans will be discussing during the coming months

1. Hillary Clinton is a closet lesbian. But, don’t get us wrong, some of our best friends are lesbians.

2. Bill Clinton is the secret lover of George Clooney.

3. At this very moment a giant tunnel is being constructed under the Pacific Ocean to transport Chinese soldiers in their invasion of America.

4. ISIS is behind the government of Iran.

5. Lower taxes, reduce the money coming into the government and raise military expenditures by $150 billion.

6. If elected, Senator Rand Paul will personally lead American troops into battle in Iran. His chief of staff will be Liam Neeson.

7. We need to repeal Obamacare and provide health insurance to those without. Just be patient, we will soon explain our plan.

8. Once Republicans are in control of the federal government the drought will end in California.

9. Unleash Wall Street and economic prosperity will rise for those earning $7.25 an hour, their wages will rise dramatically to $7.75 cents an hour.

10. Jesus will finally return knowing he will be greeted by the Koch brothers.

Republican Tough Guys!

These days listening to Republicans boast about their desire for war against evil Iran, one wonders why it is that so many of these tough guys have never served in the US Army? Marco Rubio, who would not know the front end of a bazooka, quoted the words of “General: Liam Neeson, who is a movie actor and has never fired a single shot against anyone other than a blank bullet aimed at another actor. Marco the Brave wants t he world to know that when it comes to Iran, “we will find you,and we will kill you!” Wow, those are strong words of bravery. According to Scott Walker, “we need a commander-in-chief who will call it what it is, and that is radical extremism. We need a president who will affirm that Israel is an ally and start acting like it.”

OK, so here is the Obama record:

1. President Obama provided Israel with its Dome program that destroys at least 90% of missiles aimed at Israel.

2. Under the Obama administration the state of Israel with its seven million people receives more military aid than any other nation in the world!

3. President Obama authorized the dispatch of an additional TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND MARINES TO AFGHANISTAN

Marco, Liam Neeson is an actor. He has absolutely not experience fighting real people. If you really want to get ISIS, just join the US army or go to Iraq and join their army and actually FIGHT BAD GUYS!

North Korea And Iran

I do understand that members of the Republican party seek to force Iran to halt its nuclear program. After all, the only reason for having atomic bombs is to wipe out the innocent and ever loyal land of Israel. Republicans do admit that as of this moment, the nation of Iran does not possess any atomic weapons, but according to Bibi Netanyahu, the driving force in Iran is to send their non-exzistant atomic bombs headed to Israel. Of course, Israel DOES POSSESS EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS, but we all know that peace and non-war are fundamental to the governments of Israel.

I do get confused about the Republican concern about atomic bombs. There is a nation which does have atomic weapons, including missiles which can be fired from submarines, but Republicans have absolutely NO interest in such nations. Kim Jong-un, head of North Korea, has repeatedly boasted that his nation is building atomic weapons and recently made clear they now have in their possession atomic weapons which might reach the shores of America. So, who is the nation feared by Republicans?

Iran which does not have a single atomic weapon and has agreed to UN inspection!

Is there any member of the Republican party who has a single intelligent idea about foreign policy?
