Sheldon, Sheldon, What Would Mommy Say?

There is a nice Jewish boy who happens to possess a few billion dollars and he uses this money to fight the bad people in America and in the Middle East. His name is Sheldon Adelson and he gave $150,000,000 of his money to help defeat the terrorist friend who now resides in the White House. He has promised a few hundred million dollars of his money to any Republican who will help him fight the bad people in the world. Sheldon is now accused of having ties to crime lords in the Chinese enclave of Macau. Steve Jacobs, who worked in the casinos claims that Sheldon refused to terminate his relations with the notorious Chinese Triad that runs crime in the enclave. Sheldon, Sheldon, what would your Jewish mommy say about her nice little boy having connections with crime people?

Oh, and Sheldon is the leading supporter of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Sheldon works to end any opportunity to create an independent state of Palestine because he considers any and all Palestinians as criminals! Let me get this straight, Sheldon opposes criminals in the Middle East but is now charged with working with criminals in Asia. We truly hope these charges are incorrect because Sheldon is a nice Jewish boy and nice Jewish boys only play with nice little boys!

Silence Of A Woman!

For decades the work of Burmese leader, Aung San Suu Kyi has been heralded for her bravery in fighting against the Army leaders who controlled her nation of Myanmar. She was even given a Nobel prize for her brave stand against oppression. Articles and books have been written about this noble figure who single-handedly stood up against tyranny and was rewarded when the generals finally decided to create conditions that are leading to a democratic Myanmar. But, something strange has happened along the way for this brave woman. She has become a silent witness to horror occurring within her nation.

The vast majority of people in Myanmar are Buddhists. But, along the coast of northwestern Burma are a million people known as Rohingyas who are Muslims. They drifted into Myanmar a century ago and lived at the lower level of Burmese society. However, during the past few years Buddhist priests along with the government have viciously attacked these people leading to the deaths of hundreds and the loss of homes for over 200,000 people. Now, thousands have taken to the sea in hope of finding refuge in a neighboring Muslim nation.

However, Ms.Aung San Suu Kyi has remained silent during this horror of violence. A Malaysian leader now asks: “Where is Aung Suu Kyi, the so-called world champion of human rights? What is she doing? Whyis she silent on the Rohingya issue?” There is nothing but silence from the human rights leader? Why?

World In CHAOS!

It has now become a must statement on Fox News that the sky is falling and CHAOS reigns around the world since Barack Obama became our president. Most scholars of international relations believe the current era of human kind is among the most peaceful in the history of this planet, but Fox News insists that violence is growing due to failure of President Obama to send in the troops in order to reduce violence. I trust you remember when the great President George Bush sent in the troops to end violence in the Middle East. As I recall, in the year 2001 there was not a single war going on in the Middle East. And, the war in Afghanistan was over with Russian troops having left. Oh, there were some dictators, but there was not a single war going on in this region in the year, 2001.

Examine the present:

There is not a major conflict occurring on the continent of Asia. There are some guerrilla forces opposing governments in Thailand and Myanmar, but no other conflict.

The only conflict in Latin America is in Columbia where guerrilla forces are currently engaged in negotiations with the government to end the conflict. Mexico is a basket case of violence, but the fight is between drug lords and the government. But, no other Latin American violence.

There is not a single war in Europe except for the conflict in Ukraine. This conflict involves a few thousand and dozens of people die each month, but this is not a major conflict.

There are conflicts in Nigeria in which a few thousand Boko Haram nut cases rape and murder. Aside from some conflicts over who is the president of a nation, there are no major wars on the African continent except for northern regions like Libya.

So, where is the chaos? Believe it or not the only major conflicts in the world are in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Libya. None of these conflicts arose during the administration of a Democrat as President.

Vaudeville Show Coming To Your Screen

Fox News has announced some wonderful news, and some sad news about the forthcoming election for president of the United States of America. The good news is that Americans will be able–without paying a single penny– to see the most humorous event in modern media–the stage filled with aspiring candidates for the Republican nomination for that office. Here is the bad news, instead of the possible eighteen candidates, we will only be able to observe, about ten of them. The good news is that we can witness the quick minds of outstanding men such as Ted Cruz. I regret to inform you that not a single female candidate has made the Fox News cut.

1. I will be very sad at not being able to see and hear the great mind of Rick Santorum. I so enjoyed wondering which of his sweaters would appear on the screen.

2. I so desire to see Bobby Jindal, this is one candidate who will say anything in order to please billionaires.

3. My life will not be the same now that Sarah Palin no longer is in it. This is one female who can gaze into the future as well as gaze over a thousand miles with one glance.

4. So far, there is no mention of Rick Perry. I so miss his inability to explain who is in a Cabinet in our government. But, at least, he does know there is a Cabinet.

5. There is also a female whose name escapes me for the moment, I believe she was fired from her corporate job which definitely makes her a wonderful candidate for president.

None of the above will be on the stage of this show. I wonder why Sheldon Adelson will not be on the stage. After all, he has the dough,and these guys want it. I would love to see him make candidates do some tricks such as licking his penis.

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

USA,aol: “Natural Disaster Zone”

Seeking the Republican nomination for President.

Sweden, Local: “Comic Abducted By Police”

These days cops do need a laugh.

Germany, Der Spiegel: “Sex-Ed Protests”

We sure need some protests over failure to have hands-on teaching about sex.

Turkey, Hurriyet: “Portrait Of An Election”

Painted in gold.

Canada, Gobe & Mail: “Jeb: Knowing What We Now Know”

If you are a Bush, it is better never to know what you know.

Plight Of Rohingya

I realize there are few Americans who give a damn about the Muslim Rohingya who live in the Buddhist nation of Myanmar and are subject to brutality and oppression. Sheldon Adelson is willing to give millions to any politician whose only concern is about Israel, but, unfortunately, there is no Muslim billionaire in America who is willing to give millions to our politicians if they would provide assistance to people who are being brutalized, raped and killed by the religious folk known as Buddhists. Thousands of Rohingya have fled in ships to Muslim nations such as Indonesia or Malaysia only to be told-“get the hell out of our waters and go back to death in Myanmar.” Some are demanding that the Association of Southeastern Nations (ASEAN) should expel Myanmar whose behavior is horrendous. A Muslim leader, Nasruddin, has posed some questions: “Where are the ASEAN nations? Why are they silent?”

Good questions. If Israel did something evil, then Muslim nations are shouting war and violence. If a Buddhist nation does something evil to Muslims, we only hear the silence of indifference.

Death Of Rohingyas

Like many people who believe that social justice is needed for people all over the world, I was thrilled when social justice activists in Myanmar(Burma) fought against the military government which has stifled freedom in that land for over thirty years. It took time, it required leadership, and finally the beginning of freedom of speech and press is having a new birth in Burma. So, what has happened to this movement which argued that people had a fundamental right to be free from oppression for the political or religious rights? As all too often, those who begin the fight to end oppression, wind up in one way or another in imposing a new form of oppression on a different group.

The nation of Burma is mainly composed of those who are Buddhists. The government is run by Buddhists as well as the armed forces. During the past few years, the new government which promised a new era of democracy has launched one violent attack after another that is directed towards a Muslim minority known as the Rohingya. At least 100,000 are now in refugee camps after losing their property to mobs of Buddhists, and hundreds are dead as well as dozens of women being raped. I do not understand how people can struggle to create a democratic society and then turn around and become the oppressor? Latest stories indicate these refugees are now fleeing to Indonesia and Malaysia. Such are the fruits of democracy.

North Korea And Iran

I do understand that members of the Republican party seek to force Iran to halt its nuclear program. After all, the only reason for having atomic bombs is to wipe out the innocent and ever loyal land of Israel. Republicans do admit that as of this moment, the nation of Iran does not possess any atomic weapons, but according to Bibi Netanyahu, the driving force in Iran is to send their non-exzistant atomic bombs headed to Israel. Of course, Israel DOES POSSESS EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS, but we all know that peace and non-war are fundamental to the governments of Israel.

I do get confused about the Republican concern about atomic bombs. There is a nation which does have atomic weapons, including missiles which can be fired from submarines, but Republicans have absolutely NO interest in such nations. Kim Jong-un, head of North Korea, has repeatedly boasted that his nation is building atomic weapons and recently made clear they now have in their possession atomic weapons which might reach the shores of America. So, who is the nation feared by Republicans?

Iran which does not have a single atomic weapon and has agreed to UN inspection!

Is there any member of the Republican party who has a single intelligent idea about foreign policy?

Afghanistan Talks Offer Hope

The people of Afghanistan have now endured war and destruction since the 1980s when Russian troops were driven from their land with the aid of the ÇIA and other outside nations. In other words, the people of Afghanistan have known war, war, destruction and violence for over thirty years! They have been killed by Russian soldiers, by Muslim fanatics from other Islamic nations, by the Americans, by the Germans, by the Englishmen, by God knows who else. Pakistanis, Saudi Arabians, Turks, Egyptians, and God knows who else. Perhaps, it is time to sit down and discuss how to end this nonstop horror of death and destruction?

At this moment some Taliban representatives and members of the Afghan government are conducting an “open discussion” or as one terms it, “a research conference” in order to determine if there is a possibility of ending war in their land. REALITY: The end result of these discussions has to be a COMPROMISE. Neither side can WIN. Each side has to give in. There is no perfect solution. But, the people of Afghanistan need a time out from war. Sadly, the women of Afghanistan will wind up as losers of their rights. Sorry, there is no other way to end this madness of death and destruction.

I’m For Kim Jong-un

I am quite aware that many Americans do not like the leader of North Korea. For some reason,this pudgy little guy upsets leaders of the world nor does he please those who pontificate on Fox News. So, how about a few words in defense of our Great Leader, the Wise man of our times?

1. There are no street riots in North Korea.

2. There is no ISIS gang wandering around and killing folks.

3. No one gets beheaded in North Korea. OK, so a few have malnutrition, but no one is obese.

4. No millionaires can buy an election in North Korea.

5. No one has to suffer listening to blond haired idiot women on Fox News.

6. Kim Jong-un loves basketball.

7. People drink tea in North Korea but they do not have to listen to the Tea Party.

8. No black dude from Africa is head of North Korea–just good old yellow skinned leaders.

9. There is no draft of football players, just a draft of any and all young men and women.

10. AND,it is against the law to walk around with a gun in your possession!!
