Oh Them Jews!

As someone born in 1930 stories of anti-semitism are part of my upbringing. I recall seeing a sign in Mississippi that made clear, NO NIGGERS, NO KIKES, NO DOGS.” Just a friendly reminder that my sort were not welcome. So, there is no surprise to learn about the Reverend Mark Dankof who is a Lutheran pastor determined to ensure that one and all Christians know the truth about them Jews! He informed his congregation: “it should not be ignored that the victories for abortion on demand and LGBT rights are reflective of the disproportionate influence of Jewish power and money in the United States of America.”

When reading this story about Jews I sort of get upset at claims that I have a lot of money and power.I do not believe the Koch Brothers and the hundreds of other Texas millionaires are all Jews. When things get quiet, the surest way to stir up some action is to ‘BLAME IT ON THE JEWS!

At least he did not charge us with having horns on our head.

Behead Your Drinking Buddy?

Every so often behavior by those seeking to behead infidels sort of gets confusing. Yasmin Salhi, a Muslim Frenchman decided to have a few drinks with his boss and then as sort of a dessert to chop off his head. He drove a truck,he hung around with some guys and came across as just another working stiff seeking to make a living. He was born in France, educated in France, but at this point in time decided that driving a truck loaded with explosives into chemical warehouse would really make his day a notable one.

The only sign of change in his life is the appearance of a beard. But, heck, walk along any street in America and there are bearded men. So,wha led to the change? Frankly, I do not have a clue. Is there something in the water in France that sets off ordinary people and transforms them into beheaders?

The Republican Platform For America

During the coming months Americans will be inundated with countless presentations from the horde of people seeking the Republican nomination for president. In an effort to simplify the enormity of materials we present a short version of what any and all Republicans will utter:

1. Taxation –lower for wealthy in order get the economy booming again.

2. Job creation, lower taxes on the wealthy.

3. Equal rights – we are for them but must ensure that ALL receive equal rights.

4. Racism– please get rid of that old idea,it no longer applies.

5. Police behavior –we support it.

6. Obamacare –we care not.

7. God–He is on our side.

8. Women rights– we believe in women, in fact, we even marry them.

9. Gay rights–religious folk also should have the right to be gay.

10. Benghazi– Just another name for Hillary Clinton

Gay Time In America

Well, the moment finally came–the Supreme Court ruled in favor of equal rights for gays and lesbians in America. One way to exam this issue is that by the 5-4 decision in favor of gay rights the institution of marriage was aided. I have never been able to understand why conservatives, who believe in family values have opposed laws that assist people to marry and begin to have a family.Anyway, five judges voted to support the institution of marriage.

Chief Justice John Roberts and, naturally,Justice Scalia are upset. According to Roberts and his three other colleagues, the Constitution has been violated.Yes, there is no doubt our Founding Fathers would have supported gay marriage. Then again,not a single one would have supported:

1. Government action to spy on citizens.

2. The nutty idea that a corporation is a person.

3. The nutty idea that one could draw upon religion to refuse services to others.

4. The idea that presidents could unilaterally send the nation to war.

5. The idea that state governments could fly the British flag to recall the good old days.

Life changes, and those who wrote the Constitution DID understand that new times required new laws.

Where Is Turkey?

There is one Middle Eastern nation which has a strong army that is equipped for war and whose government opposes terrorism. The name of this land is Turkey. However, President Recep Erdogan believes that Kurdish forces represent the greatest threat to peace in the region. He refuses to close his nation’s border with Syria to cut off new recruits for ISIS. In fact, Erdogan regards the ISIS nut cases as a good force for peace since they battle Kurds, along with a few other groups.

Erdogan hates President Assad and he will support any and all groups involved in the war in Syria. A problem is that no one today even knows who are the bad or good guys in Syria. Turkey is allegedly a member of NATO but it refuses to cooperate in the immediate task of ending terror groups in the region. KURDS for Erdogan will always be THE enemy.

Death In Tunisia And Other Places

Hundreds of tourists from all over the world were enjoying a pleasant day on the beaches of Tunisia when suddenly two men ran along the beach blasting away with machine guns. Within moments about 38 people were dead and dozens other were wounded. It was just another example of how easy it is in the modern world to murder the innocent. Even as these murders were taking place, a few other men in the city of Kuwait entered a mosque and blew self up along with 27 fellow Muslims. And to top off the day some guy only got around to killing himself in Paris.

In the majority of these suicide murders the people who die are Muslim. Let me note:

1. There will not be any statement from imams about how and why such slaughter of Muslims violates the Muslim religion.

2. No one in the Middle East will urge creation of good jobs for young men.

3. The innocent will continue dying. Can anyone even remember how and why deaths began in Syria? Death will never take a vacation on the beaches of Tunisia. Then again can anyone even explain who is killing who in Syria?

Criminal Job Creators

By the time these words are read, the second guy who escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility will either be in handcuffs or on a slab. However, few realize how these two men have helped the American economy.

1. By doing a few bad things, including murder, they created jobs for others.

2. Thousands in the city of Dannemora rely on on criminal folks to keep the town economy running.

3. Hundreds of men got work walking through the woods seeking two bad guys.

4. Hardware stores provided equipment the two men used to escape. This meant jobs for those producing and selling the equipment.

5. A woman and a man who helped the escape now face trial, this means more jobs ranging from members of the jury to prosecutors and defense attorneys.

6. And, don’t forget the judge, all he/she has to do is just sit down and money is earned.

7. Think of those in the media and jobs created by the search.

We need more men like these two job creators to get the economy back in gear!

Donald Rides To Rescue

I realize that many Republicans are rooting for George Pataki, after all he was able to obtain the votes of millions of New Yorkers, and we all know that few other members of the Republican party can make that statement. OK, so at this moment, George is only able to reach the one percent level of voters. But, look at the situation this way:

1. George is from New York

2. Donald Trump is from New York.

3. Hillary Clinton is from New York.

4. Bernie Sanders was born in New York.

If a Republican had to vote for someone from New York who better than Donald Trump? He is the only Republican who can capture votes in New York. He certainly can not only best George, but he would make Hillary fear the man who can best anyone when the battle concerns spouting nonsense. So, ignore the surge of George with his one percent,and focus upon Donald with his 11%. There is no doubt that Donald CAN and will best George.

And, just remember, is there a woman in America who would vote for George over Donald?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Russia, Moscow Times: “Tragically Botched Birth”

Guess which one in Russia?

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Masturbating Men”

Just note name of any Republican candidate,only they do it with mouths!

France, Connexion: “Nuns Take To Road”

At least they are not flying nuns.

Denmark,Copenhagen Post: “Hate That Hate Producer”

Some produce hate, and some produce love, if a Republican, we know which you like

Canada, Toronto Star: “I’m Deeply Ashamed”

For being a member of the human race?

Supreme Court Makes Some Sense

There is no need to go into particulars, but the US Supreme Court decided by a vote of 6-3 to protect the Constitution and refuse to end a law passed by both houses of Congress. Naturally, Republicans are rather upset at refusal of the Court to send the Affordable Care Act into the dustbin of history. As I understand it, the Court upheld a law passed by Congress.

Marco Rubio: “I disagree with the Court ruling and have once again erred to correct the mistakes made by President Obama and Congress in forcing Obamacare upon the American people.”

Mike Huckabee: He is furious at the “out of control judicial tyranny.”

Ok, let us break this down:

1. Congress by a majority vote passed a law.

2. The Supreme Court upheld the right of Congress to pass laws.

Mike, it would have been Judicial “tyranny” if the Court denied Congress to pass laws!

This decision was a no Brainer. Congress has passed laws like Social Security which tax people. Congress has the right to impose taxes –READ THE FUCKING CONSTITUTION!
