NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I long for the time when I know who are the good guys in life.

A modern miracle is when a bill is passed through Congress.

I wonder if there is a Tea Party in Heaven?

Ted Cruz is living proof that one should not send your child to an Ivy League institution.

Your local junior college can do a better job of education than Ivy League professors who passed Ted Cruz in their classes.

Say, whatever happened to Bill Clinton? Is he still around?

I wonder if Hillary was a man whether women would vote for him?

Once More Into Gaza?

For over two decades American foreign policy has been based upon the foreign policy of Israel when it comes to analyzing the situation in the Middle East. Heck, liberals like Bill Maher buy into the Israel claim they are surrounded by evil forces, and the center of this evil coalition is based in Gaza. This small piece of land has repeatedly been invaded by Israel forces and thousands of people have been murdered, oops, let me be politically correct, killed. In the last invasion fewer than 80 Israelis died, and about 2,200 people in Gaza died. Yes, there are PEOPLE in Gaza. A major problem in Gaza is that its Hamas leaders lack any sense of reality about how to proceed upon the road to peace. They continue buying into the Israel claim that Hamas has the resources to fight against Israel.

The Hamas Qassam Brigade, the Islamic Palestinian Jihad and other such groups are getting ready to send some more missiles into Israel and thus enable Israel to send in its air force and army so that another 2000 innocent people can be killed. Oh, they are building tunnels. Here is the reality:

The combined forces of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Hamas, do NOT threaten Israel. In the first place, neither of these “armies” have the slightest desire to fight against Israel. Oh, Israel has EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS!

It is time for Hamas to confront reality — they will not defeat Israel. It is time for Israel to confront reality –they are not surrounded by evil forces seeking its destruction!

Saudi Arabia To The Rescue!

The American people can sleep peacefully in their beds tonight, and Fox News can cease attacking Barack Obama for being a coward. The air force of Saudi Arabia has swung into action and is bombing the hell lout of Shiite forces in Yemen. The Shiite Huthi rebels have taken over control of the government of Yemen and are in pursuit of former Sunni leaders who have fled to the south. Saudi Arabia regards itself as the protector of all Sunnis in the world. For decades money from Saudi Arabia has poured into the coffers of great Sunni followers of people like the Taliban or Osama bin Laden, and its madrases schools have educated as few generations of Muslims about evil Western powers such as the United States of America. I guess the Saudi government has finally realized their efforts to spread a traditional sense of the Muslim faith has sort of wound up creating terrorist groups all over the world.

As long as terrorist forces did not bother the Saudi government, its leaders felt perfectly comfortable, but when the Shiite Huthi, who are next door, arose and drove out its Sunni leaders, then the Saudi government decided it was time to get serious about controlling terrorism. So, the Saudi air force is pounding away. Let us hope its air force is as good as the madrases schools which were successful in producing terrorists!

Objective Reality In Russia

The Western world has worked for over a thousand years to arrive at a point in time when those who are brought before a court of law are presumed to be innocent. But, of course, in the world of Vladimir Putin, how can one be presumed innocent without his OK? A growing complaint among those who obey the dictates of their pseudo dictator is there is something wrong with a Criminal Code based on western ideas that presume innocence of the accused. Putin followers believe the code is closer to the “adversarial approach” in western courts of law that stem from Anglo Saxon ideas. According to Alexander Bastrykin, “it is foreign to the Russian legal system” which should stem from Mother Russia and its numerous dictators.

He is calling for introduction of the concept of “objective truth.” Under this system the judge decides which evidence can be introduced, the judge can cross examine people, and the judge can steer the jury to the correct outcome. There is no “presumption of innocence.” Let me make it clear, if the Russian government went to the trouble of bringing you to trial, we can assume they knew you were guilty. Actually, why hold a trial in the first place!

Drone Wars Must End

There is one consistent belief that has been held and continue to be held by leaders of America. They fervently hold to the belief that if we kill leaders of terrorist organizations they will collapse and peace will reign. As you recall, we did kill Osama bin Laden and the result was….. I think there are now MORE terrorists in al-Qaeda than when the dead dude led them. Today, we Americans have refined the method of killing bad guys. We send drones into the air, they are informed that the guy down there wearing a robe is a very, very bad guy and must be obliterated from the face of the earth. One question lingers in my mind, how did American intelligence receive the information that led to the conclusion this particular guy was a terrorist?

Our intelligence believed that an Afghan who has been designated to be “Doody” was a terrorist. The drone hovered over the area where Doody lived and soon a missile went down to earth. For some reason, the missile hit an innocent Afghan man and his son. The boy was killed and Doody continued living. So, they began to send machine guns bullets down to earth until Doody was no more.
Again, who decided that Doody was the bad guy?

Has anyone in American intelligence considered that if I wanted to get rid of an enemy or person I considered to be someone who was not my friend, all I have to do is inform American intelligence that he is a terrorist.

Mr, Dermer, It’s Time To Depart

There are common rules that all diplomats who have been assigned as ambassadors to foreign nations are expected to respect. They must always remember the post of ambassador demands that the individual stay out of the internal politics of the host nation. The Israel Ambassador to the United States of America, Mr.Ron Dermer, has for years been a friend of Republicans and does not like the Democratic Party of America. There is no problem with an ambassador having opinions, but he is a guest and thus if he breaks rules of the diplomatic trade can be sent packing and returned to his native land. Ron Dermer broke every single rule of the role of ambassador. An ambassador is allowed to talk with members of the opposition party in a nation. But, the ambassador is NOT allowed to negotiate with these people about foreign policy.

If Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is really sorry for his remarks he will immediately recall his ambassador to the United States and dispatch someone who minds his own business and stays out of American politics. This would signal a sign that Bibi intends to behave and seek to work with American leaders. Sorry Bibi, but neither you nor your ambassador are American citizens and you are guests in our land!

Outside Tikrit

As a child I learned the story of the Alamo when a handful of brave Americans held off the large Mexican army for several days before being overwhelmed and killed. Today, outside the city of Tikrit in northern Iraq there area about 1,000 members of ISIS hold up inside the city and ready to die for their cause, just as did the Americans at the Alamo. Apparently, there are over 25,000 soldiers in the Iraq army and nmow they have an opportunity to defeat 1,000 of the bad guys. During the initial stage of this battle, the good guys did advance and now they have cornered the bad guys. Apparently, the good guys appear stalled and they are hesitating about banging away into the main city. Reports indicate the bad guys are ready to die and are begging the good guys to come get them.

This story is repeated time after time. Bad guys ready to die, and good guys ready to hold off from being brave. There is no question that bad guys in the Middle East BELIEVE in their cause. They are ready to go to heaven or wherever good guys posing as bad guys wind up. Iraqi forces have now summoned the US air force to blast away. There is no question they will send thousands of missiles and bombs into Tikrit. The real question is why do the good guys lack determination in this struggle. It is clear that until members of the Iraq army come to believe in their cause, such hesitation will continue. Who knows, perhaps in this case the guys inside the Alamo will survive!

Jesus Story Today

Christian fundamentalists insist the Jesus Christ will one day return to take everyone up to Heaven and enjoy the beauty of eternal peace and happiness. There is one problem with this story. Consider the following:

1. Jesus walks around in a robe.

2. Jesus has strange fellow features.

3. Jesus does not speak English.

4. Jesus is an illegal immigrant.

5. Jesus makes no sense to a modern Republican, he is in favor of the poor and does not respect the wealthy.

6. If stopped by a cop he would continue walking toward him with open arms.

7. He was born and raised in the Middle East and we know all about those people.

I have a hunch Jesus knows all about American cops and just wants prefers to be crucified.

Oh, and he sure the heck would never vote for Bibi Netanyahu!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

If Ted Cruz can run for president, why can’t a two year old?

Oh, for the days when Rudy Giuliani ran for something.

There is no hope for Republicans to support anything asked by President Obama.

Once upon a time in America we built great things, today, we now speak about building great things.

I await Republicans informing Americans exactly what is their alternative health care plan.

Hate rides triumphantly through the streets of America.

I do not believe Jesus Christ will return, would you?

Friends Spy On One Another?

As you will recall, members of the Republican party insist that President Barack Obama is not really a true American and he owes his allegiance to some place in Africa. As you will recall, members of the Republican party place nation before anything else. The Wall Street Journal, a newspaper who really loves Barack Obama has come out with a story which claims that the Israel government has been spying on the American government and providing members of Congress with secrets. According to the WSJ, the “spying operation was part of a broader campaign by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government to penetrate negotiations and then then build a case against terms of the deal.” I think this is not really appropriate behavior on the part of one’s ALLY!

This story indicates that Israel then provided this information to Republicans in Congress in order to assist their efforts to halt negotiations with Iran. By any standard, if a Republican obtained information about American secrets from a foreign agent, they can be placed on trial as a traitor!
