Another Hairy Story

The most dramatic change in my 86 years of life has been the incredible interest in what people wear on the top of their head. I was raised as a Conservative Jew in a world in which men had a yarmulke and many women covered their head. Males and females in the synagogue had something on their head. Of course, in those days, professional women would not be caught in public without a beautiful hat. But, these days in countries like France hardly a day goes by without some incident about what woman placed on her head.

Asma Bougnaoui is a French design engineer and she committed the unpardonable sin of  coming to work with a headscarf. Her boss insisted this garment on her head “embarrassed”fellow workers. They insisted that if she wanted a  job, no headscarf at any time. She is appealing this decision.

Islamic State Is Shrinking

Donald Trump is going to carpet bomb the hell out of ISIS, and get rid of any and all terrorists so once again, America can stand tall. Well, examine the record:

1. ISIS has already lost control of 40% of land it once held.

2. Town after town in Iraq has fallen to the Iraq government, and Fallujah no longer has any ISIS terrorists.

3. During the ISIS flight from Fallujah,an estimated 2,000 of their fighters was killed by air attacks. Oh,Donald, American pilots dropped bombs. OH,there was no need to ‘carpet bomb’ because ISIS fighters were out in the open.

4. ISIS slowly, but surely, is being forced from their positions in Syria. Everything  Donald promises to do, IS already being done!

5. The central issue which Trump does not even understand is -what is the strategy once ISIS no longer controls areas in the Middle East? How will ISIS then function? What will be the strategy once ISIS lacks a geographic area under its control?

Donald, do you even know what has happened to ISIS in the Middle East?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Surprise! Donald is running on a ticket promising LAW AND ORDER!

These past few nights have witnessed one cliche after another cliche about the issue of cops shooting black males.

I would appreciate, although it will never happen,hearing the specific Laws that Donald wants and what does he mean by –ORDER?

Once I become dictator, my first edict will ban any discussions of emails –from whomever to whoever!

I suspect most Americans are more bored than angry.

Gee, I wish we had a presidential candidate who represented the high qualifications of President Millard Fillmore. He wanted to ban immigration of Catholics! He never said a word about Muslim immigrants.

There are moments I wish Donald and Hillary would just disappear and I had the opportunity to vote for Elizabeth Warren.

So, Where Is Crime In America?

CNN always has someone on its panel who represents the “police” version of what is transpiring in our nation. This individual invariably notes that crime is rampant in black and Hispanic areas so it is only natural that most halted by police are black or Hispanic. They argue it is not the fault of police for  halting blacks, it is a normal outcome from the fact that if police have to enter black crime areas, it means they will have to confront more blacks and Hispanics during the course of a day.

This rationale comes across as logical, and provides reasons for cops to halt those with dark skins or those who speak Spanish. HOWEVER, where exactly are the centers of crime in America?

1. MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of people lost their homes, their life savings due to criminal behavior of Wall Street bankers and salesmen.

2. Untold thousands of people lost thousands and thousands of dollars because lying college salesmen got them to enroll  in fly-by-night “colleges”which were really sham outfits ripping off people who did not know much about  colleges. Talk about places with high crime rates!

3. Check out those friendly stores that offer to cash checks for those without savings accounts, or loan someone in need of a few hundred dollars who now pays back a few thousand to loan sharks. Has ANY COP entered those centers of nonstop crime??

4. Each year a few thousand people are subject to the Nigerian promise of millions for a few thousand from you. Has any cop investigated these crimes?

A visit to Wall street will enable any cop in this land to encounter criminals  who do not steal a few hundred dollars, but millions and millions and no COP ever halts these crimes!

An Angry Voter

We decided to conduct a phony interview with a phony person who is angry, and I mean,ANGRY!

M: So, Tom, why are you so angry?

T: We have to take this country back again, back again. We have to return to those wonderful days when we whites last had some power. Now,let me make one thing clear, I got nothing against coons or niggers or anyone who speaks with funny words like this Spanish stuff. If you want to live in the United States, then it is time you got a white skin, and spoke English.

M: Between 1880 to 1924 over twenty four million people came to America from Europe,the vast majority were poor, and the vast majority could not speak English, let alone read or write in English.

T: But,they had white skin. Any person with a white skin soon learns how to speak English, and work their way  up from poverty. Remember, these people were law abiding citizens, not like  black criminals that have taken over our cities.

M: Gee, as I recall the Mafia arose from Italian and Jewish immigrants from this group. The most densely populated area in the entire world in 1906 was the lower East side of Manhattan, and people living in these slums were white skinned immigrants who worked for low wages.

T: But,they were white skinned,their children were white, and they were not Muslims and terrorists. Look at the drugs,look at the crime in black neighborhoods, it’s the blacks who cause crime.

M: Rampant crime, rampant city corruption, rampant prostitution, rampant drugs were the hallmark of Prohibition. And, blacks were minor players in this nonstop crime wave, more were murdered each year during Prohibition, than are murdered today. The killers were Christian, Jewish, with a host of other ethnic groups thrown in. OH, and the Ku Klux Klan was murdering dozens of blacks, and their method was lynching.

Ah, for the good old days when we whites killed, murdered, were criminals and transformed cities into dens of corruption.

P.S. Not a single Muslim in this group.

Great Divide Widens

I turn on CNN and hear twenty four hours a day and night some expert explaining  why there was a shooting in Dallas. Of course, there was also shooting in St. Paul, in Baton Rouge, in Chicago, in Cleveland, and a dozen other places in America. At this moment, attention is upon the Dallas police who got killed by a man who clearly explained the reason for his anger was –the end of Black Lives by members of the police. We can debate this topic once again, we can offer platitudes about the need to protect police against violence.

1. Of course, we do not  want police murdered.

2. Of course, ALL LIVES MATTER and that includes cops.

3. We have 300,000,000 weapons of destruction in the hands of people, so what is surprising that one tenth of one percent of those people are gun crazy and angry?

4. Frankly, no political leader in America has the guts to address the real issue– we have to DISARM AMERICANS.

5. If you want to go hunting, let’s make this a fair fight, one shot rifles against deer with out weapons.

6. It is time to return to the originally meaning of the 2nd Amendment. It dealt with the issue of a “well armed militia.” If you want to fire a weapon, join a state militia.

7. More blacks with die, more Hispanics will die until we disarm Americans.

8. So, what about cops – the lesson from many countries is that police AVOID use of guns, it must be THE LAST OPTION.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

No one should be surprised that A black person reacted with death.

I await news of a white person halted for a traffic violation was shot and killed by cops.

It is normal to hand out traffic tickets, not bullets.

I await with no expectation, Donald Trump’s reaction to Dallas events.

I assume Donald wants to build a wall to separate blacks from whites.

America gets SHOCKED when whites are killed, not blacks.

Allow everyone to walk around with rifles and you are “surprised”one person decided to use what you allowed him to have!

The policemen who died in Dallas were the good cops.

 

Are These Muslims?

Recent events in the Middle East leave one wondering if the so-called “Islamic” terrorists are really Muslims. Suicide bombers blasted a mosque that was founded by  the Prophet! These so-called “Muslims” have been attacking and bombing mosques all over Saudi Arabia. Their attack on a mosque in Medina, one of the most sacred Muslim cities leaves one bewildered by men who insist they are carrying out the wishes of the Prophet.

The evidence is overwhelming that “Islamic” terrorists are NOT Muslims. They simply are a new breed of people who murder Muslims, and destroy sacred Muslim heritages. Perhaps, it is time to cease referring to them as “Muslims” and simply  characterize them for who they are–TERRORISTS! Continue reading

My Buddy, Saddam Hussein

Donald Trump once again displayed his incredible knowledge of the Middle East an its leaders. There is no question when it comes to understanding what has transpired in the Middle East, Donald is our best guide to the war in Iraq that was begun by George Bush. As you recall, Bush had this incredible misunderstanding of Saddam Hussein, and invaded Iraq and murdered a champion of human rights.

Only Donald really understands why Saddam Hussein was a wonderful man who fought for human rights. “Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right” But, did you know what he did well? He killed terrorists.He did that so good. They didn’t cared about rights. He didn’t talk. They were a terrorist, it was over.”

Huh? There was no al-Qaeda. There was no ISIS. The “terrorists” were people fighting for human rights!! If ignorance was a virtue, Donald Trump would be an angel.

Oh, That Iraq War

Unlike the United States which has refused to examine reasons for the Iraq War, the English government established the Chilcot commission several years ago in order to determine the how and why  of England’s entry into the war. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair testified and he did recall informing President Bush “I will be with you what ever.” He now makes clear he regrets making such a pledge. “I express my sorrow more than you can ever believe.”

Let me get this clear. Over four thousand American soldiers died in the war in Iraq and over 30,000 were wounded. So far, our Congress has empowered seven committees to examine the death of FOUR Americans at Benghazi. But, the death of four  thousand is of no interest to Congressional Republicans!!
