In Defense Of Cops!

Every so often one comes across a story about a brave policeman who is being punished for acting like a brave cop. Detroit cop Alex Vinson was involved in a robbery and during this process he encountered the fact that the criminal had a wonderful new watch. The policeman lives in an era when Wall Street folk steal the public blind and when their crimes are exposed, the only penalty is that they are forced to accept billions of dollars in compensation for robbing people. This is what is termed to be the “capitalist system” in operation. Steal from the ordinary American and become wealthy. Heck, the head of Goldman Sax once complained that he was being treated like a Jew during the Holocaust.

We offer support for Mr. Vinson. All he did was take the watch from the bad guy, and place it on his own wrist. Compared to Wall Street bankers he is a paragon of virtue. So, hail Mr. Vinson, he has learned that under capitalism, one steals and is rewarded. Unlike, Wall Street thieves, he simply stole from a thief. I think he is entitled to a decoration for valor in the face of the enemy.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Humans so frequently refer to God’s Wrath, is it themselves who are filled with anger?

I wonder if celibacy arose because there is no Mrs. God?

At age 84, I so like the word, “rebirth.”

One does not gain wisdom from age, it comes from an inquiring mind.

People at computers reach point where they lean back and gaze.

Since computers think, do they ever think about other computers?

There are sounds from my youth which never again will be heard.

Two lonely iPads met for lunch.

There is no doubt one must speak exiting the coffee shop on that damn cell phone!

Tea Party folk hate God’s work-people– but insist they like God!

Hey, What About Yemen??

This blog simply wants to alert our readers that when you grow weary of reading about terrorists in Syria or Iraq or Egypt or Israel, take a deep breath and have your eyes wander down the map of the Arabian peninsula to the nation of Yemen. Yep, it is at the bottom of this area. Frankly, foreign policy wonks have lost track of how long fighting has been going on in this region which is on the border of Saudi Arabia and all its oil.

1. Most people in the country are Sunni Muslims.

2. There is a Shiite minority which has been in rebellion for the past who knows how many years.

3. There are also al-Qaeda groups in the hills.

4. America uses drones in this area to kill the bad people.

5. The Houthi minority of Shiites recently took over the capital and forced changes in the Sunni led government.

6. Al Qaeda suicide bombers blow themselves up and kill innocent men, women and children to increase chaos.

Prediction:

Within a few years this chaos will hit Saudi Arabia. After all, Saudi Wahabbi Muslims created the chaos so it is only fair they get a taste of what they created by funding madrases to educate young boys to hate any form of modern life!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if one has to sholve snow in heaven.

Girl with black boots must attract attention.

Some place drink to right of computer, some to left.

I wonder if it snows on all planets?

Hopefully, Americans have a Rendevous with Reality.

Americans devote enormous amounts of time fearing things that will not happen.

If you seek happiness, avoid being anti-gay.

To face Death calmly is to believe in life.

There is no such thing as a surplus of Love.

There IS such a thing as too much Hate.

On Yom Kippur Jews shout, “to the next year in Jerusalem. Republicans shout, ” to the next year with more wealth for the wealthy!”

Secret Service Head Jumps The Fence!

Every so often when I have nothing better to do in my life, I just turn on the TV and watch someone interacting with members of Congress. Secret Service head, Julia Pierson spent a pleasant afternoon talking with members of Congress about recent — and past events in which the Secret Service displayed an ability to shoot itself in its foot. Hopefully, this does not come across as sexist, but this person simply does not come across on TV as a leader. Neither words nor body language display forceful thinking or creative ideas. OK, so the Secret Service allowed the President of the United States to get on an elevator with an armed man. Is it their fault that men in America wander the streets and elevators with guns? Just imagine if they had taken the gun away from the man– the NRA would be running ads this election denouncing the arrival of a dictatorship!

Anyway, Julia has decided to resign. However, she should be proud of her performance as head of the Secret Service. Due to her outstanding work, Republicans and Democrats in Congress are now UNITED! She accomplished what President Obama never could. She brought together members of both parties who now agree on something. The Secret Service is a mess. Who knows, perhaps, this unity could wind up getting Congress to pass a law!!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

Never allow a child to go to sleep with anger in heart.

Become the guardian of love.

If you can’t solve problem, ask for advice. Usually, it is free.

Better to pay now, than later.

Holidays have lost their meaning.

Some reach deep into purse, some into heart.

I distance self from people when in coffee shop.

For some, best companion is iPad.

These days elderly couple grow alike in body size.

Most shake heads as other talks.

There is a time and place to just shut up.

SKY HAS FALLEN IN AMERICA!!

For American conservatives these used to be the best of times, but, alas, these have become the worst of times. There are unconfirmed reports that most Wall Street folk are packing their bags, gathering up their riches and headed for more friendly climes because terrorists are now loose in America and seeking to take away the riches of those who toil only to benefit the American worker. We know those with wealth have only but one thought in their mind, how to accumulate money because in accomplishing this task they bring untold wealth to each and every American who works for a living. The entire edifice of American capitalism is based on the proposition that wealthy folk take from the poor and give to themselves. How else can prosperity be reached in America?

Well, there is threatening news from the city of Los Angel! Just think about it. A hotel worker will now make about $2500 a month in wages. This means they will be purchasing goods with this money. This means they might even have a few dollars to deposit in banks which could then loan their money to business enterprises! This is the first step toward COMMUNISM! This event marks the end of American CAPITALISM! Yes, the sky has fallen in Los Angeles!

Don’t Anger Money Groups In America!

These days the most important sports news comes from statements made –or not made– by those in charge of the National Football League. Believe it or not, but in those olden times one picked up a newspaper, turned to the Sport section and encountered stories about your favorite team and what it was doing on the playing field. Bill Simmons is a sports analyst for ESPN, and like most commentators he has become disgusted by refusal of NFL leaders to address issues of violence –of the playing fields- by athletes who prefer punching out a girl friend or wife or just slamming their children. Bill blasted NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for pussy footing about the issue of domestic violence. Mr. Simmons dared to engage in profanity by terming Goodell’s comments as a “lie!” Imagine in modern America terming someone with power as uttering a “lie?”

Simmons was suspended by ESPN. Oh, ESPN makes gobs of money from the NFL and the last thing they desire is to anger those who pay them. After all, this is capitalist America and if one have money, then people had better accept whatever you state as the TRUTH! Bill Simmons has his own followers on the Internet and will continue speaking his mind. It is sad that the word, “lie” has now become a profanity in modern America!
