We Need A 21st Century Armed Force

In 1940, the United States of America has a smaller army than Bulgaria, and our troops were training with wooden rifles. President Franklin Roosevelt then compelled Congress to vote necessary funds in order to create a modern army and navy. What does it mean to have a “modern” armed forces? It requires providing those serving with the proper equipment, and leadership. Let’s face reality. Our present armed forces are not designed for fighting in the twenty first century. We continue building tanks and jet planes when we need troops who are versed in fighting wars against guerrilla organizations. We continue building aircraft carriers although there is absolutely no need for them. China has exactly ONE aircraft carrier, and we worry about the Chinese navy. What would a modern armed force look like?

1. Special forces, men and women who are able to function in lightening strikes would be increased.

2. We need men and women who understand the nature of their enemy. They must be educated about Islamic traditions and concepts.

3. We need officers who understand the enemy. Few, if any, American officers who entered Iraq or Afghanistan understood their enemies. They wanted to blast away with terrible results for the civilian population.

4. Our armed forces must understand how to work cooperatively with local populations.

During World War II when American soldiers entered France or Italy they were provided information about people of those nations. How many US soldiers knew anything about the people of Afghanistan or Iraq prior to those invasions? An educated soldier is a more effective one. That is essential in the 21st century!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer comments on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if elections for God are financed by the Koch Brothers?

I walk in the air, never in malls.

A woman dressed in white always captures my attention.

Cell phones compel people to spend their days looking down.

I never walk in sandals.

My hope is that Death takes off for a winter break.

Allowing a car to get in front of you means it is the last car to get the green

Money, Money, Money, Let’s Elect IT!

I ve in the fair city of Chicago, or at least in the suburbs of that place. I switch on the TV and hour after hour, ads hit me from Bruce Rauner who is running for the office of governor of the state of Illinois. If I see one more ad from Mrs.Rauner, who for some strange reason, supports her husband’s candidacy, I will literally throw something at the screen. I wonder if she realizes that by the twentieth time one sees her quiet face talking softly about her husband, one simply is ready to vote for Donald Duck or even Sarah Palin! The Koch Brothers Inc. are spending about a half BILLION DOLLARS in this campaign which has been transformed into a fight as to which party can spend the most money. I have been informed by the Democratic party of their disappointment with me for failing to send in a few bucks. I assume this means I must stand in the corner with a dunce cap on my head.

The only question confronting America is how we reached this point in our history? Oh, the Founding Fathers! Yes, Madison and Hamilton and Washington fought the Revolution so that the Koch brothers could spend a half billion in the election. We need a new Supreme Court which is not radical like the current one. We need to end the mindless madness of money, money, money!

So, What Is Israel Policy In Middle East?

There is nothing more fruitless than seeking to discuss Israel policies toward Palestinians or in the Middle East with American Jews who are convinced any and all problems confronting the nation of Israel are the fault of Muslims who refuse to compromise and attain the end to conflict. The prevailing view of AIPAC is that Israel is blameless,and any and all problems stem from Muslims who hate Jews. I find ironic that Israel has no problem with Germany, whose former rulers murdered six million Jews, but are convinced that Palestinian leaders who never engaged in mass slaughter of Jews have hearts filled with hatred and will not end their war against defenseless Israel.

The bottom line is a simple question: what is Israel policy during the coming five years or the coming ten years toward Palestinians? At present, the only policy is to gradually gain control against Palestinians by seizing their lands. I apologize for this remark. Israel is a small nation surrounded by untold millions of Muslims whose only thought is about destroying Israel. Of course, the ONLY nation in the Middle East, along with Iran, which refuses to allow UN inspectors into nuclear facilities is–Israel. The ONLY nation which has atomic bombs is -Israel. The bottom line is that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lacks any foreign policy that deals with the major need for Israel-peace with all its neighbors and economic cooperation. I do realize in writing these words I am considered to be a “Jew hating Jew.”

Oh, Israel just beat out an American offer to India, and will be selling that nation 8,000 Spike missiles and 800 launchers. Gee, I wonder if Republicans will say anything about this sale which destroyed hundreds of jobs for Americans? When is is a choice between American jobs and campaign contributions, guess which wins out?

Putin Speaks, So Listen!!

Vlaimir Putin has spoken and I trust that Americans will listen to a man with an iron heart who does not fear any animal, let alone any human. There are unconfirmed reports he just came back from wrestling a bear and sending him flying away in fear. So, the Great Leader decided to offer some of his wise words both to the people of Russia and America. He wants the world to know that: “I don’t think the United States poses a threat to Russia.” Wow, now I can sleep peacefully knowing the most powerful man in the world does not expect to go to war against America! However, the All Wise one has some words of advice to the American people about Barack Obama: “I think the policies of the ruling elite(in America) are erroneous. I think they go against our(Russian) interests, and undermine trust in the United States.”

I think we Americans should pay attention to this man of the truth. If only he was in the White House, every Muslim terrorist would tremble in fear. Imagine the head of ISIS being challenged to a duel at high noon with the Black Belt leader of Russia! If only we had a Rambo in the White House instead of a guy who plays golf! How about asking Putin to come to America and become our leader? OK, so you gays might be a bit worried, but which is more important, disturbing gays or ending fear of terrorists??

Then again, this blog would end if Putin was in charge.

BEWARE BARACK OBAMA!

Once again Barack Obama has failed to display the qualities of Presidential leadership that we expect from the person who leads this nation. He allowed former Ebola patient, nurse Nina Pham to enter the white House, and he hugged this womb! Furthermore, he told the American people: “I don’t think that Ebola poses a threat to the United States.” NO threat? Good lord how can Fox News continue to exist if there is no threat. Just think of all the reporters who would be out of work if there was no threat. Just think of Republicans next week who would be defeated if there was no threat? We MUST have a threat if this nation is to survive as a great nation. OK, so we did have one during World War II, but once that war was allowed to end, where have all our threats gone? A nation without a threat is a nation divided, and can no longer exist as a great nation.

It is now clear that John Boehner has the right not to touch or speak with the President. Ted Cruz now has a new fear to spread: “Don’t Touch Barack Obama or Any Of His Policies!” Not only is Barack Obama poison to our beloved wealthy folk whose money he seeks to take, he is now poison to each and every American. Let’s place Barack Obama in quarantine!

Another Shooting In Another School

The history of school shooting in the United States of America usually follows the same pattern:

1. The shooting occurs in a suburban area or a small town.

2. The shooter is from the middle class.

3. The shooter has been allowed by parents and society to play with guns.

4. The shooter is a Christian.

5. The shooting NEVER takes place in an urban school setting.

6. The shooter is a white male.

7. The NRA will insist the shooter would have been halted if only each student has been provided with a weapon.

Jalyen Fryburg meets six of these seven criteria. He was a black male. He also fails to meet the usual requirement of being lonely. Jaylen was a happy young boy who was popular. However, he entered the cafeteria at Maryville Pilchuck HS in Maryville, Washington, and proceeded to blast away. There are reports he was angry about racist comments and refusal of a girl to go out with him. The bottom line is that this nation loves guns and allows anyone to have access to them. Pray tell why such shooting do not occur in European nations?

Non-Story Is A Story

This blog is now able to report an important story that contains no news about Ebola, but it certainly has captured the attention of Republicans who stand ready to defend America from the Obama scourge of Ebola. An identified nurse who just came back from Sierra Leone in West Africa has been reported to have a high fever. She was tested for Ebola, but refused to come up with this disease. Authorities are checking as to whether this nurse is actually a nurse or whether she is another Muslim terrorist seeking to spread the disease among we God fearing decent Americans. This blog wants to know why the medical profession failed to find evidence of Ebola? Who is behind this plan to clear people of Ebola when they just came back from Africa? I am pleased to report that Fox News is on this story. We demand to know when the Obama administration found the Ebola on this woman and why they now claim she does not have Ebola?

It is about time the Obama administration provided the truth to Americans. It is very simple, any and all coming back from Africa should,not only be quarantined, they should be shot at dawn!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Never Dull Moment In Politics”

More important, never an honest moment in politics.

France, Connexion: “Less Income Tax For Wealthy”

So, what else is new?

Russia, Moscow Times: “Russia Halts Import Of Chicken Legs”

I can hear Vladimir Putin clucking about this one.

Australia, Canberra Times: “Noodles Laced With Marijuana”

Point me in the direction of the nearest Chinese restaurant!

Japan, Japan Times: “Suicide Cells”

Hopefully, they commit suicide in the cells!

So, Who Is Working?

The government of India is employing a new system for government employees. The experiment allows anyone in India to check on what a public servant is doing at this very moment. As a citizen in India, I can log in at a government website and discover if an employee checked into work today and whether or not he is at his desk. Alas, the website does not allow me to know if this person is actually doing work while seated at this desk. How about in America?

1. We have a website that allows us to know if our congressman is actually in the House of Representatives.

2. A website that allows us to know which bills our congressman has introduced this year.

3. A website that allows us to know what did our congressman say in Congress.

4. A website that allows Fact Check to inform us as to whether what our congressman spoke is factually correct.

Good Lord if we had that website Ted Cruz would have to remain silent when in the US Senate!

Then, again, how about a website that checks on commentators who speak on TV?

In fairness, we will exempt religious leaders from these websites. Now, as to God….
