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

Death means you cannot discuss your death with others.

Table of senior at McDonald’s means at least one brought donuts.

Tall blond woman wearing boots, definitely gets my attention.

Modern lunch with family means it is a meeting of iPads.

I wonder if they have a buffet in heaven.

In every end there is a new beginning.

Barack Obama is the great Miscommunicator.

Nurses enjoy patients who laugh.

Some days I think God took the detour.

Elephant In Your House

For decades Republicans are the party of elephants. See an elephant, and one automatically thinks of Republicans since this is the party of that large creature who wanders the forests of Africa. A Republican Senator has introduced a bill that would prevent any GOVERNMENT from impairing the right of free enterprise in Africa. After all, poachers are simply using their 2nd Amendment rights to shoot and kill any creature in the land. If hunters can shoot squirrels, why not elephants? The NRA is supporting this bill and warning any legislator who opposes killing elephants will make clear they are on the side of liberals seeking to take away 2nd Amendment rights. Just read the Constitution which makes clear our Founding Fathers opposed making laws that prevent killing any creature in the forest.

1. Elephants live in the forest.

2. Hunters hunt in the forests.

3. If elephants don’t want to be killed, just leave their tusks on the ground.

Oppose this vill, and you oppose freedom for Americans to hunt and kill creatures in the forest.

On the other hand, how about a new symbol for Republicans: A hand holding a gun aloft??

Spread The Word And Go to Jail

I was raised as a member of the Jewish religion, and it was made clear to me that we Jews are not interested in converting other folk to become Jews. I was raised to mind my own business and not interfere in the religion of other folks. However, there are several American Christians who believe that Jesus Christ wants them to travel to the dictatorship of North Korea and pester those people with the world of God, or at least their version of the word of God. Every few months some Americans, loaded down with Bibles heads for North Korea, that land of peace and love. For some strange reason the brutal dictatorship of the Kim gang does not want any words spoken that do not preach the word to one and all that Kim Jong-un is the ONE and only God in the land.

Mathew Miller and Kenneth Bae have just spent a few months learning about farming and hard labor in North Korea. After a few months of this work, their desire to work at spreading the word of Christ sort of grew less and less interesting. Finally, boss man, Kim, decided to let them go home. Perhaps, they can now spread the words of Jesus about aiding the poor to American Republicans!

Terrorism Goes On

America is sw e pt by hysteria over the death of ONE person due to Ebola, and the deaths of a few people at the hands of ISIS. At the same time, across the Pacific, thousands of people have died at the hand of terrorists. No, they were not murdered by Muslim fanatics. No, they were not killed by ISIS. They were murdered because they were Muslims! Christians and Jews insist that Muslims are controlled by a desire to kill infidels. Sorry, history proves that all religious groups kill those who are different,

The nation of Myanmar is basically composed of those who are Buddhists. A hundred years ago Muslim migrants came to what was then called, Burma. During the past ten years, under the leadership of Buddhist monks, mobs have attacked the Muslim rohingya. For some strange reason, not a peep out of Fox News about these jihadists. Not a word from Bill Maher who believes the Muslim religion fosters sectarian hatred. Over 100,000 Rohingya have lost their homes and businesses and now hover in refugee camps. Over ten thousand have been murdered. Reality, All religions contain the seed of sectarian hatred.

Death In Mexico

It has become a normal attitude to define the Muslim religion as suffering from some sort of deficit when it comes to murder. Americans go wild with fury when ISIS Muslims chop off heads, and even liberals like Bill Maher blame these actions upon the Muslim religion. He is constantly insisting the Muslim religion sanctions murder of the innocent. Christian Mexican drug lords have murdered an estimate 50,000 people over the past five years. Yes, Bill, these murderers are members of the Catholic Church that you so despise. Forty three Mexican college students disappeared after they complained about the actions of a mayor. For weeks the media has reported the “disappearance” because no one knows what happened to them.

Well, we now know. Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karem is convinced that fragments of bodies found near a river must be the boys. Initial reports indicate that a drug gang allied with the mayor killed the boys, set up huge funeral pyre that burned for hours and the bodies were placed in this gruesome finality of life. The next time Americans complain about the Muslim religion being prone to atrocious murders just remember the Christian Mexican drug lords and the Christian mayor of a small town.

Oh, and never forget that Nazis were Christians!

Onward Christian Soldiers Marching As To Iraq

As you may or may not recall back in 2008 the newly elected President Obama promised to end our wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq. OK, he did remove most soldiers from Iraq although he did insist upon a “surge”in Afghanistan which was about as successful as the one in Iraq–in other words, it never worked aside from a few months. I do not blame Barack Obama for the ineptitude of Iraq Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki who single handedly created the current mess. His anti-Sunni program turned thousands against the Iraq government and compelled most to ally with ISIS. Most probably Obama had limited options in Iraq. Although he could have frozen any and all aid until a coalition government was formed in Iraq.

President Obama will soon dispatch about 1,500 US troops to join the 1,000 currently training Iraq forces. Did Obama have options? Most probably not. However, he could have offered the Iranian army military equipment if they would train Iraqi soldiers. Of course, that would have annoyed AIPAC and led Republicans to go ballistic. I await the Republican military strategy for Iraq. So do Americans!

Putin Wants Bank Bailout!

Few Americans grasp the enormous range of abilities possessed by the man known as, Vladimir Putin. He can wrestle a bear, catch a whale, confront any tiger and handle it hand to claws. So, it is not surprising that Vladimir is also a brilliant financial wizard. Yesterday, the Russian ruble collapsed and it lost at least ten percent in relation with the dollar. Banks are reporting runs in which depositors either demand their money or insist on converting their money to dollars. Alas, there simply is not enough Euros or dollars in Moscow to handle demands. Russians should not fear. The Great Leader will shortly president an economic plan that will end the financial crisis that is sweeping Russia.

We expect Vladimir to threaten Europe with having to listen to his speeches if they refuse to end sanctions toward Russia. On the other hand, the Great One may simply head to the wilds of Siberia to confront the bears. Hopefully, this will not result in a bear market.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Canada, Toronto Star: “I Will Miss Him”

Say, whatever happened to Barack Obama?

China, China Daily: “Strengthen Graft Fight”

Never abandon the right to get a bit of graft, why else get elected?

France, Connexion: “Ruling On Flight Delays”

Yes, they are legal!

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “You Still Here?”

I will fight for justice today and tomorrow!

Sweden, Local: “Stockhold Therapy Tax”

If only we had such a therapy tax in America for members of Congress!

A Decision From Left Field On Gays

It was simply a matter of time before a conservative judge in the United States of America got in touch with God and realized that allowing gays and lesbians to marry had made the Big Guy up in the sky very angry. After all, God is not married so how can males and females marry those of the same sex? Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton of the 6th C circuit Court of Appeals has decided that allowing gays and lesbians is a violation of the US Constitution. He believes the Constitution places power in the hands of States so he is voiding any overthrow of bans on gay marriages in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky. Just trust the “work of state democratic processes” is the cry of Sutton. As I recall, it was the work of state democratic processes that denied the right of blacks to marry whites or allow black children to attend schools with whites, and certainly democracy in States made clear our Constitution did NOT allow those black folks to drink at the same water fountain as we white folks!

The Supreme Court will void this decision. It is the last gasp of those who live in another century!

Back Off Obama On Immigration

It has become increasingly clear that President Obama lacks knowledge about American history. He needs some old time Irish politicians around him instead of his Chicago buddies who inhabit a world apart from the daily lives of Americans. I suggest that he get a friend to just drive around America, halt in diners and talk with people about their daily lives. The President has thrown down a challenge to Republicans that he will act on immigration. A few months ago when asked about his strategy for ISIS, he responded: “I don’t have one.” Barack Obama must learn to shut his mouth! If you lack a strategy, simply say, “we are close to reaching decisions about deploying Americans but will not do so until we are certain to avoid deaths of our military.” Obama has the power to use his executive power to handle the immigration situation. But, now is NOT the time to do it. What should be his strategy?

1. Inform Republican leaders that he awaits their solutions to the problem and will not do anything until they first have had an opportunity to come up with a plan.

2. Arrange to meet with Republican leaders and ask them to inform him of their plans.

3. Hold weekly press conferences and arrange for the media to ask him about immigration reform. Respond that he awaits Republican action.

4. There are times to be silent and just wait and watch.

5. Do not issue threats.

6. On September 1, 2015 announce that he has waited a year and must now issue an executive decision.
