Does Obama Hate Jews, Israel and So On?

I continually encounter Jews who insist the following:

1. Barack Obama is the worst president in history.

2. President Obama hates Jews.

3. President Obama hates Israel.

4.President Obama wants Iran to wipe out Israel.

Then again,there is the record of President Obama

1. He has numerous Jews surrounding him every day.

2. Under his administration Israel has been given $15 billion in military aid.

3. Under his administration the Dome was built which can knock down incoming missiles.

4. Secretary of State John Kerry has spent months attempting to assist Israel to reach an agreement with Muslim leaders.

If such actions represent, HATE, please get Obama to hate me!

I Don’t Serve Gays!

Members of the Republican party are among them most rapid defenders of the US Constitution and continually remind one and all about our FOUNDING FATHERS. The very first amendment to the US Constitution was a clear statement that religion had no place in the government. They had witnessed during colonial times efforts by the British government to require support for the Anglican Church. The essential theory of the new government was that each person had a right to practice an individual religion but when it came to government, none was allowed.

There are some county clerks in the state of Kentucky who refuse to issue marriage licenses to gays and lesbians because their religion forbids them to do anything that would support such individuals. Of course, the same people who support this action are terrified at the prospect of Sharia law. Idiots, you can not oppose imposing religion upon government employees while defending the right of government employees to impose their religion upon citizens!

Another Shooting

There is one topic that is always on TV or discussed on social media or completely ignored by the NRA.A man who worked for a TV station was fired because of his strange behavior and, naturally, what else could he do,but prove that he is a man filled with rage and anger. Lester Flanagan had been working on a TV station in Virginia where he drove most people nuts with some rather strange words and behavior.He was finally fired,and, what else could he do to prove that he was not a nut–return to the studio while former colleagues were on the air and shoot them. He later turned the gun on himself.

The only sort of saving grace is that he was not another nut case white guy. Naturally, the NRA interprets this event as proof that guns save lives. If only all people on the set had a gun there could have been a shoot-out at the OK TV studio. There is no question this was one sick dude.The real question is why do people who display weird behavior have scant problems getting gun?

I expect the usual comments about too many guns and the need to regulate them.The only end to this madness is when American voters finally decide that common sense requires and end to gun ownership for most Americans!

Oh, for the record, he was a bona-fide Christian.

The Turkish Dilemma

President Recep Erdogan is the Donald Trump of Turkey. He takes umbrage at anyone who dares challenge what he does or says. Challenge his policy and one hates the Muslim religion. Complain about human rights abuses,and one is in league with his enemies. His political party was denied a majority in Parliament which prevented him from changing the Constitution in order to give the President even greater power. His latest anger is directed at The New York Times which printed a picture of him leaving a mosque from which at least 100 men went to join ISIS. How dare he connect the President of Turkey with support of ISIS?

Here is the record. After refusing to launch any air strikes against ISIS, the man of action finally allowed–THREE. Of course, his air force launched over 200 air strikes at Kurdish forces which battle ISIS. To Erdogan the enemy is NOT ISIS, it is any Kurdish armed force seeking rights for Kurds in Turkey.

Boom Boom Goes ISIS

There are moments when I believe it is possible to enter the mind of an ISIS follower in order to understand from whence comes his ideas about anything. The recent senseless explosions in Syria which have witnessed the destruction ruins dating back at least two thousand years leave me baffled. ISIS insists it is their Muslim duty to destroy and all relics from the past since they represent idols.

1. Yes, and sort of no, you guys are right. They were built by those who worshipped gods in the sky.

2. The confusing point is that it violates the Muslim religion. Fellas, these things were built BEFORE there was a Muslim religion. So, how in hell can they insult something built before the thing being insulted never was?

3. If you guys want to destroy idols, how about forests. After all, in olden times, they did worship things in the forest.

4. How about you guys getting high on marijuana and forget about blasting anything other than your mind?

Dark Days Ahead For Bibi

Recent reports from top Israel officials indicate that back in 2010, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ready to launch air attacks on Iran, but was held back by top Israel generals. Goes to show there are Israelis who think like the black dude from Africa. Imagine seeking to resolve issues via diplomacy rather than through bombs! Senator Harry Reid just joined those supporting President Obama and his quest for peace.

Ironically, President Hassan Rouhani in Iran has problems with war hawks, ready to match Bibi bomb to bomb. Rouhani told the people of Iran, “we consider this agreement a stating point for moving forward” toward peace in the region and the world. According to brave warriors such as Ted Cruz of Scott Walker or Marco Rubio, failure to demand bombs is a mark of the coward. As I recall, none of these “brave warriors” has ever served in the US military. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who was attacked for negotiating with Communist dictator Joseph Stalin respond with: “Jaw, Jaw is better than War, War.”

Erdogan-I Demand Power!

For many years President Recep Erdogan was the prime minister of Turkey, and he did a few good things about assisting the economy to become more modern. He did a few good things about checking the power of the military. He did assist Turkey on its march to become a modern society. But,alas, POWER soon became the name of his game. He wants POWER and he wants to crush any and all factors in Turkey that prevent him from having POWER. Just last year he was working to have Kurds become an integral part of Turkish society. But, alas, his desire for POWER led to an election that resulted in his political party losing its majority. So, what has he done since that event?

He launched attacks on Kurdish military units fighting in Syria and Iraq against ISIS. Beating ISIS will not gain him any votes, so the hell with that game. However, there are Turks who do not like the Kurds-a minority in Turkey–so fight them and call a quick election in hope of gaining COMPLETE POWER!

Too bad Erdogan is not head of North Korea -now that is one country in which the ruler does have COMPLETE POWER!

Refugees Seek Refuge

They set sail,not on ships, but all too often in flimsy boats that barely make it across the Mediterranean. They walk across areas of Europe heading for the tunnel that allows one to actually gain entrance with feet to the safe shores of England. They are refugees. Since the dawn of humanity when our ancestors walked out of Africa headed for all areas on this planet, the refugee is the person seeking a new home, a new opportunity for a better life. Between 1880-1924 about twenty five million people from Europe arrived on the shores of America, only to be met by those insisting there simply was not enough room,and they would seek to take jobs away from native born Americans.

Last week about 20,000 arrived in Europe setting off the alarm bells of those who fear their jobs will be taken away.So,how to deal with these people?

Step one is to distribute them across the European continent.

Step two is to invest in Africa and create jobs. A person with a job is not seeking a new land.

Tragedy Of Middle East

There has been an ongoing tragedy in the Middle East for over seventy years. It has to do with reactions of Muslim nations to their fellow Muslims. After the forced or voluntary departure of Muslims from the new state of Israel, not a single Arab/Muslim nation would allow their fellow Muslims to become citizens of the land in which they were now living. They have spent the next seventy years as aliens in Muslim societies. Today, over two million Syrians are now refugees in a Muslim society. They are not allowed to become a citizen, they are denied opportunities for work, for a role in society.

Syrians are NOT welcomed into Muslim societies anymore than Palestinians were or are. They live on the fringes of society. A Syrian who enters Sweden is allowed to become a citizen and enjoy the benefits of that role. But, not a single Muslim society offers Muslim refugees the same right. The question is why don’t Muslim societies integrate Muslim refugees?

So, What About Iraq?

We are now experiencing the resurrection of the triumphant trio of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. In the new Republican narrative, these men were not only responsible for the overthrow of evil, terrible Saddam Hussein, but they saved the world from the bad man’s nuclear or chemical weapons of destruction. It was due to the intelligence and bravery of George Bush that peace and prosperity were restored to the people of Iraq. Alas, then appeared the black dude from Africa, whose blunders led to the rise of al-Qaeda, ISIS, and you name the other evil people.

1. It was the dynamic trio who appointed Nouri al-Maliki to the position of Prime Minister. It was this man who transformed the Sunnis who had worked with American forces into the enemy of the Iraq government.

2. The success of the so-called, Surge, depended upon cooperation of Sunnis. Guess who ended that cooperation.

3. President Obama DID offer to maintain US forces. BUT, he refused to allow American troops to be subject to Iraq law. THAT was the reason they left.

I await Jeb Bush publicly saying he was ready to have American forces placed under Iraq law.
