HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

Sweden, Local: “Dog Moves In With Family”

I assume the cat moved out.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “People Lose Faith In Police”

Sorry, this is NOT news.

France, Connexion: “Thousands March Against Health Laws”

At least they are getting some exercise.

China, China Daily: “China Heads Reform Project”

We can expect that many minds will be reformed of bad ideas about democracy.

Russia,Moscow Times: “First President Transplant”

Finally, Putin gets a heart!

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 believe tigers in Siberia are happy when Vladimir Putin is back in Moscow.

I await a law in Texas which gives toddlers in the crib the right to have a gun.

These days I frequently wonder how I got to live in this crazy version of the USA?

I would not be surprised to learn about an alliance of Republicans and ISIS to end the tyranny of OBAMA!

I simply can not fathom the hatred that now exists in America.

Some days I wish to migrate to Denmark and enjoy life with people who are happy, not angry.

I think the Kentucky basketball team should become the new New York Knicks basketball team.

Say “Rape” And Add Word: Pakistan

I confess to having been raised with the concept that one does not attack any religious figure, particularly someone of another faith. In a sense, these people are “off ground” to acts of violence. I do understand that members of the Taliban do not like any and all foreigners in their land. But, what sometimes gets me confused is when they blow themselves up and kill any and all people in an area. I assume but he law of probability some of those blown up are fellow Muslims. Oh, I forgot, there are bad and good Muslims, something like when Catholics hate Protestants which empowers any Christian to go ahead and murder a fellow Christian. OK,I get that point, but how does one understand when the Taliban rapes a 74 year old nun? For God’s sake, this is an elderly woman who spends her life praying to the big guy up in the sky.

OK, I must learn to accept that anyone is subject to rape in Pakistan, anyone is subject to being killed in Pakistan. I must accept that raping an elderly woman somehow, in some way, indicate the rapist is simply following the dictates of God. Logically speaking, this leaves only one conclusion – this God up in the sky really does not think much of his creations if he approves of rape and murder of them.

Such acts only leave me doubting the existence of God if he is in anyway connected with these creatures of death.

International Women’s Day

Well, it is that time of the year when we decide to devote an entire day focused upon the world of women and their struggle for being regarded on an equal basis with men. I believe we males should be proud that we are willing one day of the year to recognize that women in the workplace do encounter a few issues. A young woman who works in England described her encounters with those of the male sex. “The male friends I have at work are the same as me. They occasionally think being funny is more important than being nice. They’re neurotic, forceful when they think they’e right and not afraid to say ‘this is wrong, fix it’ and sometimes get things wrong. But, at the end of the day I’m still the bitch.” In other words, they will interact with women, joke with them, tease them, but it must always be clear that she is a woman and they are men. On International Women’s Day this professional woman had to make these comments but also made clear that she could not use her name. After all, her buddies at work want the world to know that some of their best friends are women.

Yes, we have come a long way, but, in reality we are closer to the starting line than to the end of this race for equality. The quest for equality is over when a person is a colleague, not a female colleague. One must alter minds to recognize that all at work are simply fellow workers and their sex is completely unimportant–AT WORK! Sex is for after work.

“BULLSHIT!”

Members of the Republican party went wild with enthusiasm for the worlds of Bibi Netanyahu who demanded military action against Iran and an end to the weak and ineffective policies of Barack Obama. Meier Dagan is the ex-headof Israel’s secret service, the Mossad, and he does have a slightly different take on the Bibi speech. One can sum up his perspective in a single word: BULLSHIT. Of course, this man actually has studied the situation, both in the Middle East and in Iran. Dagan was particularly infuriated when Bibi told Congress: “Israel’s soldiers have boundless courage and Israel is ready to defend itself.” Dagan felt these words were defiant and almost challenging Iran to attack Israel.

Dagan pointed out that the missiles of Iran pose no threat to the United States since they could never reach its shores. Bibi is great on rhetoric but somewhat confused about geography. Dagan, and most members of Mossad fear that Netanyahu’s policies.”on the matter of the Palestinian state are leading to a binational state or an apartheid state.” Benjamin Netanyahu is akin to white leaders of South Africa who promised that blacks would never attain equality in their land. Just continue to support apartheid and the end result would be peace. So, it is with Israel.

India, Land Of Rape!

India has for centuries been among the leading societies of the world. It contains a rich literary heritage, it has been a source of religion and philosophy that few societies can match. But, there is something sordid and sick within this society. It is the attitude of all too many men toward women. The government of Government official Naidu informed the world, “we can ban the film in India. But, this is an international conspiracy to defame India. We will see how the film can be stopped abroad.” The young woman got on a bus and then was raped by several men, including the bus driver. Following are comments from the rapists:

“a decent girl wouldn’t roam around at nine o’clock at night.”

” a girl if far more responsible for rape than a boy.”

“boy and girl are not equal.”

Yes, it is important for India to ban this film. Of course, some might argue that showing this film and then jailing the rapists just might send a message.

John Boehner Has Principles!

We Americans can get on our knees and thank God that John Boehner is ready, willing and able to protect us against the forces of terrorism that were created by the inept policies of one, Barack Obama. At a time when ISIS is murdering people or the nut cases in Nigeria are kidnapping and killing, as far as John is concerned the greatest threat to the American people are those who enter America in order to pick our crops and clean up our dirt. John and his merry group of nut cases in the House of Representatives have passed a bill to provide funding for the Department of Homeland Security as long as they ensue no money goes to handle illegal immigrants. I do realize that few reading this have the historical understanding possessed by House Republicans who are convinced some illegal immigrant kids pose the real threat to the survival of the American nation.

The US Senate can not get support to pass a similar bill and wants to pass two bills, one that funds DHS and one that deals with children. According to John: “I’m waiting for the Senate to act on the bill.” So, come Friday, less money for DHS and fewer working to deal with terrorism. Sheldon Aldeson and the billionaires are happy, they will get tax cuts and when one has a billion, the fear of terrorists is not central to life. Republican congressman John Fleming wants America to know, “To cave in on this point, I think our leadership sees real danger in doing that.”

Welcome to America one and all terrorists. Just don’t allow them Hispanic kids to enter!
