NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

There are a lot of people who are happy but not happy about gay marriage.

I have not heard any nonsense from Sarah Palin. I wonder if she spends her time gazing out the window looking toward Siberia?

What ever happened to Herman Cain?

I have lost any knowledge as to the number of people seeking the Republican nomination for president.

Just think, what would America become if Ted Cruz was president??

The eyes of Texas are always gazing at guns.

I assume members of the NRA are buried with their guns, one never knows what lies ahead.

For Gay Marriage Anyone??

There are a few problems confronting the United States of America such as a crumbling infrastructure of student debts of lack of good jobs, but for those seeking the office of the president who are members of the Republican party the most important issue is who is or who is not going to attend a gay wedding.

1. Marco Rubio is against such weddings because he is not gay, but he would attend such a wedding.

2. Rick Santorum has principles and believes one should only attend a wedding in which one person was male and one was female.

3. Scott Walker would go even though he opposes such travesties of the institution of marriage.

4. Governor Kasich of Ohio is OK going to such weddings even though he is not gay, and make certain that is placed in print.

5. Senator Ted Cruz believes posing this question is another example of a “gotcha question.” He would not attend because the entire issue is one of “personalities and emotions.” It is clear that he does have a personality and he does have emotions.

6. Jeb Bush believes in “traditional marriage” but he would attend because “I have no hatred or bitterness in my heart for people that have a different view.”

7. No word as of this point from Governor Chris Christie who currently is stuck on the George Washington bridge.

Would you attend?

On Satire

The murder of French satirists is still on our minds. The debate is still on our minds as to what is permissible when it concerns satirists who simply are being satirists since such behavior is within their minds and blood. Australian Foreign Minister, Julia Bishop, raised some key issues concerning satire. “We see satire as an integral part of French society. Satie is controversial, it is provocative, it offense all religions,all political parties, nothing and no one is spared. It is a counter balance against power.” Well said. So, the question is: are their limits to satire and who should exercise such limits?

1. Satire if it is to continue to be satire has no limit. That is the meaning of satire.

2. If one does not like being the object of satire, then engage in a conflict of words rather than a conflict of violence.

3. The world has to encourage satirists to emerge within Muslim nations. How about a Satire Recovery Plan?

4. If the United States of America is to produce political leader such as Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, John Boehner, and the rest of the clowns what else do they expect other than ridicule??

5. Then again, a night of Fox News is an experience in how a TV network is engaging in satire without knowing it is engaging in satire.

In the end we need clowns in our lives as well as sane people given that sane people are producing the most bizarre nations in the world!

P.S. I wonder if God is a satirist who created this strange world?

What Has Happened To America?

What has happened to America?

We once built large highways.

We once built great bridges.

We once built huge dams.

We once led the world in education.

We once had brilliant men and women in government.

We once were admired in the world.

We once provided for the poor of this land.

We once welcomed immigrants.

We once helped our neighbors to build a house.

What has happened to America??

School Death, Spanish Style

There was a death in a school when a high school student, armed with a cross bow entered the school and shot a teacher with an arrow. Students huddled in their classrooms and tried to shut the door, but the boy was able to get into a few rooms and wound four of his classmates. He was finally subdued. Notice the difference between a boy armed with a crossbow and a boy armed with a rapid firing weapon which can send dozens of bullets all over the school in a few seconds. In Spain, we talk about A death, not the death of a dozen. Friends say the boy had been talking for days about his desire to murder teachers but no one paid any attention. After all, this is 2015 and students watch films in which young boys blast away with guns and murder a few dozen. We now accept as “normal,” the idea that a student openly discusses a desire to murder his teachers of fellow students.

The difference in Spain is that obtaining weapons of mass destruction is difficult. Heck, here in America it is now LEGAL to bring a gun to a college classroom in Texas. Heck, the student can carry a concealed gun and it is legal. Something has gone crazy in America since now over 50% of our people support the idea of people being able to walk around with weapons that can fire dozens of bullets. The only solution is to move to Spain and just confront the terror of a crossbow.

Oh, no report of Muslims in the area

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Norway, Norway Post: “Winter Holiday Begins”

Sorry, when winter has gone and springtime has come…

USA, aol: “Get Off My Lawn!”

In Texas, going on another’s Lawn is an invitation to death.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Noses Can Backfire”

Achoo to this point.

Canada, Toronto Star: “I Am Not Afraid”

Words American wealthy when it comes to higher taxes from this Congress.

Sweden, Local: “First Donut In Space”

Gee, I remember when we had people in space!

Israel’s West Bank Problem

Those in Israel who believe they can simply walk into land the United Nations originally assigned to the Arab population are ordinarily rewarded by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with protection of the armed forces. In most nations of the world when a group of thieves take land away from people who have claim to an area, the result is either being arrested or made to leave the area, post haste. But, in Israel, all one has to do is invoke the name of God, and just take whatever you desire– as long as the people losing their land are Palestinians. At least sixteen European Union nations have banded together and will demand that any products coming from the West Bank be classified as have been produced in that area. This will enable consumers to refuse purchasing products from stolen land.

I do understand that God issued an edict which places control over land on the West Bank in the hands of those who are Jews. Of course, this was stated about four thousand years ago so it must still remain the norm. Of course, I assume that Indian tribes in America also were promised land and, using Jewish Israel logic, they should be able to take over Manhattan Island.

Scott Walker Is Silent, Sort Of

Governor Scott Walker is running for president and thus must display his knowledge of foreign policy. One usually begins with a trip to Europe that does not include viewing the famous sites of other countries but entails talking with members of the foreign media. Scott made clear that he does not discuss foreign policy while outside the territory of the United States of America. Of course, he does agree that the entire Congress of the USA should be part of deciding on the foreign policy of the American people. However, Scott did make a few points:

1. His bravery is standing up to teachers and firemen seeking higher wages does qualify him to stand up to ISIS.

2. He does want troops in Syria, but at this moment does not know who they will be fighting with or alongside. Sort of confusing.

3. He loves Israel and each and every Jew he encounters.

4. He hates Iran and each and every Iranian. At the moment, he is sort of confused as to exactly where lies this country. Somewhere in the Middle East, he thinks.

5. He wants to destroy Iran’s nuclear sites, but is not exactly clear how to do this.

6. He definitely hates Islamic terrorists.

7. When he notes “our allies” he means, Israel.

Oh, and his firm in his belief that President Obama has a “failed foreign policy.” One of these days he will discuss this foreign policy.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

People with guns kill people.

These days children with guns kill other children.

Since we all came out of Africa, we all are refugees in which ever land we currently reside.

I have yet to hear any alternative to the Iranian agreement other than bomb the hell out of them.

Why do so many Christians fail to turn the other cheek?

Why do baseball games take three hours to play?

I await the entry into the presidential race by a clown. Any clown will do.

Speaking of clowns how about Rudy Giulini or Dick Cheney?
