Behead Your Drinking Buddy?

Every so often behavior by those seeking to behead infidels sort of gets confusing. Yasmin Salhi, a Muslim Frenchman decided to have a few drinks with his boss and then as sort of a dessert to chop off his head. He drove a truck,he hung around with some guys and came across as just another working stiff seeking to make a living. He was born in France, educated in France, but at this point in time decided that driving a truck loaded with explosives into chemical warehouse would really make his day a notable one.

The only sign of change in his life is the appearance of a beard. But, heck, walk along any street in America and there are bearded men. So,wha led to the change? Frankly, I do not have a clue. Is there something in the water in France that sets off ordinary people and transforms them into beheaders?

Spies For Peace?

There are moments when one wonders exactly what President Obama even knows about the spies he employs. There is one truth in all discussions concerning how and why the National Security Agency spies on Americans, on Russians, on Chinese, on ISIS, and, heck, even on our allies in Europe. One is left wondering if our President knows about this spying, and, if he does not, why the heck does he not know! French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are sort of peeved that their friend, their ally, their dinner companion, allows the NSA to spy on leaders in Europe.

OH well, President Obama will issue the “apology,” and ensure one and all that no harm was intended. After all, the NSA runs the show in Washington D.C. It decides who is “the enemy,” and whose mail should be checked. My only question is–“does the NSA also check the mail of Barack Obama?”

Nukes For Europe?

Many still alive in America spent a good part of our lives experiencing the Cold War when no one knew if when or where someone would send an atomic bomb to initiate the end of civilization. Today,Vladimir Putin so enjoys pretending he can use atomic bombs in order to compel the world to,not only listen to his words,but to obey his demands for respect. Frankly,no one knows if this man is crazy enough to actually employ nuclear weapons as part of his diplomatic efforts.

The US is now talking about sending nuclear weapons back to Europe as part of some “show of force.” America and the European Union made a mistake in moving quickly into eastern Europe and talking about placing weapons on the border of Russia. It is time to move back, quiet down the rhetoric, and make certain no one is showing off any nuclear weapons.

Putin Talks Of Peace

OK, the time has come to accept that Vladimir Putin has but one goal in mind-peace and prosperity for the people of Ukraine. Once again, in talks with French President Hollande and German Chancellor Merkel, the GREAt LEADER of the Russian people wanted all to understand that he has but one goal for Ukraine and that is peace and prosperity for all. So, what does Putin desire?

1. Ukraine government should lay down its arms to prove they want peace.

2. Ukraine government should give money to those living in eastern Ukraine.

3. Ukraine government should give political power to those living in eastern Ukraine.

Now, these are simply a demonstration the government of Ukraine really wants peace.

Sounds fair to me.

National Front Glory Days Are Over

The National Front is a political party that was formed in France over sixty years ago by a man named, Jean Marie Le Pen. His initial goal in life was to prove there was no Holocaust and the entire episode was created by Jews in order to get money from Christians by making them feel guilty over the alleged killing of Jews. His explanation as to what happened to the six million Jews who no longer were around ranged from they were in South America or had gone to New York or were now living peacefully in Israel. He insisted the right course for French people during WW II was to have been an ally of Nazi Germany and fought to defeat the Soviet Union. The years passed and Mr. Le Pen grew older and older. However, he had a daughter named, Marine who decided to take over the party, end the nonsense about denying the Holocaust and transform the National Front into the leading opponent of Muslims who lived in France. Heck, she even got some French Jews to join this party of hate.

Unfortunately for Marine, dad could not keep his big mouth shut and once again began to argue that supporting Adolf Hitler was the right idea. Marine has now thrown dad out of the National Front and he is going to organize another party and seeks any and all Nazis still alive to join his fight against communism.

I wonder if anyone has informed Mr. Le Pen there is no longer a Soviet Union?

France Moves To Right

There is a significant shift in the attitudes of people in the Western world. They increasingly are disgusted with any and all forms of government that include passing laws that impact the wealthy or that allow people of the Muslim religion to enjoy human rights. At a time of vast changes in technology that reduce the number of decent paying jobs, of the rise of immigration from areas that are in poverty to areas that are enjoying the benefits of modern government sponsored legislation such as minimum wage of health insurance, those at the bottom of our economic society are angry. They feel left out and due to social media and the vast wealth of those who can manipulate the news, have come to believe their problems are the result of poor people from the Middle East and Africa. In one way or another liberal forces have failed to communicate with those who are at the bottom of the economic level that maldistribution of wealth is the problem.

Former President Nicolas Sarkozy and his UMP movement made significant gains in local elections in France. They went from controlling 42 local Departments to 65. French Socialist leader Prime Minister Manual Valls made clear “the French have declared their anger of a daily life that is difficult.” Just like Americans, the French do not believe there are any problems with economic inequality but believe all problems stem from immigrants taking their jobs! The only good news is that the truly right wing National Front did not sweep the election.

Children Headed To Death

There is increasing controversy over the issue as to why many young people in European nations decide the world in which they live simply does not meet their needs for-something. Three young teen girls fled from the United Kingdom, got to Turkey, and somehow made their way across that nation to the safety of Syria where they hoped to find some meaning to their lives. There is no doubt they received assistance in England and they certainly got help in Turkey. After all, three English speaking girls had to make their way across a foreign land and get across the border into Syria. The issue that western people refuse to confront is-why do some young people who were raised in democratic societies flee to the arms of violence and hate? It is quite clear they discover in the words of hatred a missing aspect of their society.

The quest in modernity is for a sense of meaning. We provide youth with technology and money and propaganda that extols the importance of material things only to discover that some young people hunger for a sense they are doing something that transcends their material existence and provides a sense of self worth. Consumerism does not provide that emotion. So, in their ignorance, they embrace death. They hurry towards hate and fear and brutality from which they can obtain a sense of meaning. Ironically, in the age of technology, primitive thinking attracts some young people. Never forget that we are only a few hundred years from our violent ancestors.

Denmark–Blacks Come To Safety!

A SINGLE JEW WAS KILLED IN DENMARK, and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu urged Jews in Denmark to seek safety and freedom in Israel. I thought if that is the criteria for safety, Denmark might offer safety and freedom to Blacks living in the United States of America.

We in Denmark know that if your skin is black and you decide to walk the streets of an American city there is a strong likelihood that some policeman will halt you, strip search you, and if he does not like your attitude then death might be your end to this encounter. We in Denmark enjoy safe streets and a safe environment so we offer any and all African Americans to come to Denmark and be safe. Just think, when your little boy goes to play in the park and waves a toy gun, he will not be shot down. If your son walks in the street instead of the sidewalk, we will not shoot him. So, come to the safety of Denmark and leave death and poverty behind.

Oh, the invitation is also offered to Hispanics. PLUS, we do not have a Republican party to shut down your government and allow terrorists to murder at will!

Money Is Sexy

There is something about the lure of money or a bit of power that can turn a woman’s head. Henry Kissinger, hardly the most sexy man on this planet always attracted gorgeous female to his side. French diplomat and rather wealthy guy has cut a swath through beautiful women,bout for some reason is always in court because he somehow or another decided to fool around with prostitutes of chamber maids. His friend, philosopher Bernard Henri Levy describe the man who would never appear in any ad as a rather dynamic individual. “Charisma, seductive, yes certainly; a friend to women, first of all to his own woman. But this brutal and violent individual, this wild animal, this primate, obviously, no.” Quite a portrayal of a man for all women.

However, Doominique Strauss Kahn has a propensity for being at parties with prostitutes where he sort of engages in rough play. He now faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon of violence, but not with his penis. Anyway, Dominique is rather upset because how was he to know those women who so adored him were prostitutes. He thought that animal charm attracted them to the dumpy little man.

Wither Mother Russia?

Vladimir Putin has signed what passes for a cease fire agreement in Ukraine, and in theory there is peace in that beleaguered land. But what about the future of Mother Russia?

1. Despite the so-called wealth of Russia under leadership of President Putin no focus has been upon creating a modern post industrial economy.

2. The entire economy focuses upon one thing-OIL.

3. If the price of oil continues to drop so does the Russian economy.

4. There is no economic plan to develop jobs in industries that produce products that can be sold on the world market.

5. Unemployment is certain to rise in an oil dependent economy.

5. Russia does lead the world in one area–it is among the most corrupt governments. This does not encourage business leaders to invest in a nation in which one must pay bribes to do business.

6. Hovering in the background are the thousands of Muslim Russians who are fighting in ISIS or in Syria. What happens when they return to dear Mother Russia?

Vladimir Putin may one day get his war!
