We offer observations on the human condition from a 23 year old mind trapped in an 83 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Some never forgive.

Some never forget.

Friday, an end for some, a beginning for others.

If you refuse to hate, there is no reason to forgive anyone.

There is a time and place for everything.,

Some cut sandwich in half to eat it.

Some people are readily forgotten.

I have always followed the star of life.

Their are riches in the wallet, and riches in the heart.

In a group, there is always someone who will cast the first stone.

Some deserve, some don’t.

Some tweet, some are tweeted.

Blue skies for me means peace and harmony.

In the end, the unknown becomes the known and the known becomes unknown.

Some think with certainty.

Find purse, turn it in, she gave me $30. Wow!

I am a stranger among strangers.

Hopefully, what we leave behind, surpasses what we arrived with.

I wonder about wearing a white beard.

All have a right to procrastinate.

What Can Be Done In Ukraine?

Rebel separatists in Ukraine just shot down two Ukrainian jet planes with their guided missiles. It is now quite clear these crazy people have not got the message of a cease fire. Silence reigns from Moscow at the news. This means President Putin has received the message of no more guided missiles but prefers to ignore it. So, what is left for the world?

1. Raising the level to new heights of sanctions against Russia.

2. The United States to announce it will supply oil to any European nation which agrees to support sanctions.

3. A ban on any person from the US or supporting European nations to visit Russia.

4. A ban on allowing exports from Russia to enter nations.

5. A ban on exports to Russia.

One is tempted to urge sending NATO planes into Ukraine to bomb missile sites, but that is too risky. However, in simple English, quarantine Russia. Putin must confront the fact he is NOT boss of the world.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Barack Obama comes across as a man alone.

As we grow older, we forget how we were mentally formed.

Today, is simply a revision of yesterday.

We can gaze into another’s eyes, but can we gaze into the soul?

Gentleness of daughter to dad is a wonder and joy.

In the end, I am who I am, no other.

Dawn breaks, question is -will we?

I knew, but never knew my father.

Hopefully, the child always remains in the adult mind.

Cherish each memory of life.

A nation enthralled by emotion is a nation headed for disaster.

A major issue is whether humans can behave as humans.

Some teen girls walk with wondrous eyes.

Unpolitical Obama

Each passing day reveals increaded evidence that Barak Obama has never grasped the importance of why a successful American president must be the political leader of his party as well as its intellectural head. Upon his election in 2008 as president of the nation, Obama has the enthusiastic support of millions of young people who wanted, not merely the end of a disastrous war in Iraq, but birth of a new era in which America was a shining light to the world. As of this date, Obama has never assumed the mantle of champion of our youth. He has ignored their issues, gone agaisnt their desire for an end to secrecy whose only goal was to intrude upon the lives of Americans. He never grasped that youth were the leading users of the Internet, and thus thos ewho would be most impacted by spying. Those of us over age 70 are not spending our lives on cell phone, Facebook or the Internet. By allowing the NSA, the FBI, the CIA to intrude into our lives, Obama has alientated America’s youth. In effecct, his failure to focus on their needs resulted in their drift away from politics.

What can a youth centered Obam do?

1. A dramatic bailout of Student Debt.

2. Reduce interest rates for Studen Loans to 3%. About wha the US spends on its loans.

3. Offer 2 year Public Service positions in exchange for end of Student Loans.

Basically, do something that makes youth want to become politically engaged because Politics directly impacts their lives.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

There are steps to war, are there for peace?

I have weekly dream of lottery riches.

Problem of revenge is to attain it is to feel bad.

I am a man of few moods.

Who knows what lurks in the mind of Barack Obama?

I have never known the fear of intense hatred.

Allow hatred to be a weekend guest in your heart, then watch it depart.

For many, the Devil is a long lost relative.

A person can never fool self.

I wonder how people who love God seek to kill His creatures.

Another Noah’s Ark movies, I think this is a rerun.

I so miss the joy of hitch hiking.

Flashing lights in distance slow down all cars.

Tender be your love for loved ones.

Be fearless in the fight to love another.

Older daughter gently aids younger one. So sweet.

I miss the cutting intelligence of JFK.

Iran’s Seven Year Itch For Peace

There is some good news coming from Iran, or at least any sensible person would interpret new Iranian proposals as constituting good news. Then again, when US Secretary of State John Kerry has to conduct foreign policy negotiation with one eye focused on Congress, is it at all possible that he can succeed in anything related to the Middle East, Asia, Europe or Africa? Iranian Foreign Minister Muhammad Javad Zarif offered a deal. Iran would freeze its current nuclear program for seven years on condition that after that moment, it would be free to conduct the same nuclear programs as found in other nations. At this point, Kerry and his allies in negotiation have been demanding a ten year freeze. In simple, clear English, both sides ARE close to an agreement. So, let us propose a compromise:

1. Iran freezes its nuclear program for eight years!

2. Israel agrees to reduce by a factor of 20% the number of atomic bombs in its facilities.

3. Israel and Iranian leaders agree to establish a joint commission which meets on a regular basis to discuss issues between the nations.

4. America returns to Iran money that was frozen after the Shah was overthrown in 1979.

Believe it or not, peace IS possible in the Middle East!
