HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden,Local: “Top Song Of Month”

For Republicans, it is “tyranny of the Supreme Court”

Australia, Canberra Times: “Good Lies To Tell Children”

Wealthy people want to give good paying jobs to all.

France, Connexion: “Swan Confuses Road For Water”

Big deal, Republicans confuse Jesus as lover of wealthy folks.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Refuses To Apologize”

Donald still fights for birth certificate truth.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Putin To Visit Pope”

I thought he insisted the Pope come visit him!

Same Sex Fears

The United States Supreme Court made a decision and Republican candidates for president–all fifty or so of them, also made a decision. Not a single one agreed with the Supreme Court. Mike and the two Ricks blasted away at the perfidy and tyranny of the Supreme Court which is imposing its will upon the American people. Let me get this clear:

1. The Hobby Lobby decision of the Supreme Court was hailed by each and every Republican as the right decision. No claims of a tyrannical court. I wonder why.

2. When the Supreme Court rules by 5-4 decisions that allow denial of voting rights, Republicans join in the Chorus about that is what our Founding Fathers wanted.

So, what is different about same sex in our land? It is against Christianity and Judaism and Islam. Or, at least what ministers of those faits desire. Why?

1. Firs they allowed men to marry women and women to marry women. What next? Dogs to marry their masters?

2. Just remember that this court could allow male donkeys to make out with male donkeys!

Would you want your daughter to marry a monkey?

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?

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Now that we are getting rid of Rebel relics, how about taking on English ones?

It is Thursday, I wonder who will announce that he/she is running for president?

I await IT announcing that IT is running for president.

I would welcome an announcement that someone is NOT running for president.

The great mystery of life is how Republicans can differentiate themselves from Republicans.

George H.W.Bush only served one term, I wonder if he will decide to run again?

How about a mile race to get rid of some Republican candidates?

Spies For Peace?

There are moments when one wonders exactly what President Obama even knows about the spies he employs. There is one truth in all discussions concerning how and why the National Security Agency spies on Americans, on Russians, on Chinese, on ISIS, and, heck, even on our allies in Europe. One is left wondering if our President knows about this spying, and, if he does not, why the heck does he not know! French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are sort of peeved that their friend, their ally, their dinner companion, allows the NSA to spy on leaders in Europe.

OH well, President Obama will issue the “apology,” and ensure one and all that no harm was intended. After all, the NSA runs the show in Washington D.C. It decides who is “the enemy,” and whose mail should be checked. My only question is–“does the NSA also check the mail of Barack Obama?”

WE Support Redskins!

The Washington Redskin football team is being assaulted by demands for it to end using the word,”Indian”and replace it with something like Native American. The Redskins insist their name is a trademark and do not wish to end its use. Let me get this straight:

1. Political correct police wish to substitute “Native American” for Redskin.

2. The word,”American”comes from an ITALIAN named Americo Vespucci who was involved in exploration a few hundred years ago. So, according to Politically Correct folk, those who lived on this continent when Europeans arrived should be named after an ITALIAN!

Those living here before Europeans arrived did have names: Apache, Iriquois, Delaware–English translations of the original name. So, why not call them: Washington Delaware Redskins?

“Reform” A Word Shouted By All

There is one word that is shouted by any and all those engaged in the public arena–REFORM. If I want to change a school curriculum to ensure students learn about the beauty of Capitalism, just say, ‘REFORM.” If I seek to reduce Food Stamps for those in need, just argue this is a REFORM that will benefit them. If I want to make difficult the right to vote, make clear that you are simply engaged in a fight to REFORM voting procedures.

One constantly hears this word expressed when the topic of wha to to do with education is being discussed. REALITY: If Rip van Winkle awoke from his two hundred year sleep and entered a classroom all would be familiar–an adult in front of a blackboard, children copying what the adult says, and a test to repeat back what they heard.

REFORM of government is simply an expression to reduce services to those in need. It justifies less money for the poor,and fewer services for our veterans.

I DO long for the day when REFORM actually entails creating NEW approaches to dealing with our problems. Anyway, how about engaging in REFORM to rebuild our infrastructure?

Putin Don’t Like Foreign “Agents”

Vladimir Putin was raised in the good old Soviet Union and he fondly remembers when the government send millions to gulags and other such places for daring to utter a single word of disapproval for what the government does or is. If one is not a 100% true blooded Russian who, not only loves his nation, but loves those who run the nation, then times are getting bad. He has a desire, no a need, to be in charge and any indication there are “rats” around who dare to squeak their ideas means that something must be done to restore quiet.

The Dynasty Foundation in Russia is engaged in activities such as fostering scientific research or aiding those in economic need. It has no political agenda, but it is not run by the government.So, Putin has decided to clarify this harmless agency as a “foreign agent.” After all, aiding Russian schools or institutions to further scientific research is a danger to the very existence of the Russian state. To sum up, it is now clear this Foundation is out of business and will close its doors. Watch out for “scientific research” because who knows what such a process will uncover!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I am sick to my heart at the shooting in Charleston.

But, the commentary by Fox News people is even sicker than the shooter.

South Carolina displays Confederate flags on public buildings. Honor traitors!

I wonder if there is an antidote to the sickness that pervades many in the South?

Where did this love of guns begin? With the assassination of John KennedY?

In my New York City youth we had the Sullivan Act which regulated gun use.

In my New York City slum youth anyone with a gun was termed, CRAZY!

Recep The Great

Turkish President Recep Erdogan enjoys having conversations with the Great Leader of Russia, one Vladimir Putin. The other day he arranged to have Vladimir come over for a cup of coffee, and he waited, and he waited and he waited. Finally, Vladimir decided to head over to the hotel and meet with the man who so desires to run Turkey in the same manner as Vladimir runs Russia. Following was the conversation:

V: So, how goes it my friend?
E: I had an election and instead of gaining 95% of the vote, I wound up with 41%.
E: Yes, the opposition parties all together received 59%.
V: What kind of election was this? How can one only receive 41%? That has never occurred in Mother Russia.
E: So, how do you always win by such large margins?
V: Simple, decided BEFORE the election what you will receive and ensure that is the final vote?
E: But, what if the opposition receives votes?
V: Who ever heard of an opposition receiving votes that I had not planned?
E: You mean that you fix elections?
V: Of course, that is what we mean by a free election. All are able to vote. I decide the outcome.That is what we term a free election in Mother Russia.
E: Gee whiz, you are a Great Leader, I hope one day to be as wise and Great as you!
