Where Can Tourists Go?

Things are  not looking good for Russians seeking to find a nice quiet place for a vacation. Turkey is now off-limits, Egypt does not seem to be the best place to fly to or fly away from. The good old days of a few weeks in Syria would only result in a  beheading. So, where can work weary pleasure seeking Russians go these days?

1. Here in Chicago there is a beautiful lake, plenty of good restaurants and nice museums. Of course, a tourist might not respond to a cop and wind up dead.

2.  How about Baltimore, St. Louis and just about any city in the US? Just remember, when the cop says stand still, do not move a  muscle!

3. Of course, there is always Mexico, the land of sun and drugs. Oh, about those drug lords….

Bullies Face Off!

Once upon a time there were two bullies who had become good friends and so enjoyed locking up anyone who challenged their authority. They so enjoyed a good time together making fun of those damn “liberals” and their day was not complete without the imprisonment of some journalist who did not show respect for their authority. Alas, this great friendship is no more.

Turkish President Recep Erdogan supported the action of a Turkish plane which shot down a Russian fighter plane in Syria who had accidentally wandered into Turkish air space. Putin charged that Erdogan was aiding ISIS and buying their oil. His response: “If such a thing is proven, the nobility of our nation would require that I not stay in office.”  He then challenged Putin: “Would you stay in office?” if you were wrong?

Putin Needs A Friend

These days things are  not looking good for Vladimir Putin. He does not have a  friend in any nation in Europe, he does not have a friend in the Western Hemisphere, he does have some sort of relationship with China, but there are simply no friends around the shores of Asian nations. Yes, he does have a friend in Israel. Then again, making friends with Israel is akin to having the person most disliked being your buddy.

Vladimir used to have a friend in Turkey whose president, Recep Erdogan was the Putin of the Middle East. So, what  happened? A Turkish plane shot down a Russian plane. According to Putin, “we have received additional data which confirms that the Islamic State(ISIS)” was selling oil to Turkey.

Let me get this straight: Turkey is our ally in the fight against ISIS and Turkey is buying oil from ISIS. Now, we know why Turkey would rather bomb the Kurds than ISIS!

Bibi Finds A Friend

The European Union is upset at produce coming from the West Bank in what actually belongs to Palestine, but these days God, Himself, has made clear that HE wants the land to go to his chosen people. Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu needs some friends and along came Russian President Vladimir Putin to help him out. Their joint hate of Islamic terrorists has forged a nice buddy alliance.

Netanyahu: “This is something  that brings us together, in addition to the many other things  that unite us.” Let me list those other things

1. Both ignore civil rights of those they deem to be “bad people.”

2. Both claim land that belongs to another nation.

3. Both insist that God is on their side.

4.Both  are bullies –at heart.

Don’t Mess With Vladimir

Vladimir Putin is very angry. A Russian plane flying over Syria somehow drifted off course and wound up on the border of Turkey and Syria. At this point the story becomes a bit confused. Turkish pilots insisted they had attempted to warn the Russians they were now in Turkey but the Russians kept on flying. Turkish fighter planes then shot down the Russian plane.

According to Putin, “our military is doing heroic work against terrorism. But the loss today is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorism. We will never tolerate such crimes like the one committed today.”

As I recall, Republicans are insisting that US planes blast away and pay no attention to Russian planes that are blasting away. How about a war with Russia? After all, General Trump has a PLAN to wipe out the Russians and take over that country!

Putin On Destroyed Plane

I had an opportunity to discuss the recent downing of a Russian plane in Egypt with the Great Leader of Russia.

M. Sir, the world would like to know who downed the Russian plane. Do you have any information?

P: My special agents have been researching this incident and we now can offer an explanation.

M. So, who did it?

P. The same evil forces that shot down the plane in the Ukraine.

M. Do you mean ISIS also operates in Ukraine?

P. Of course not, neither plane was downed by this pipsqueak group known as ISIS.

M. So, who did this horrible thing?

P. Who else but the CIA! First, they shot down the plane in Ukraine in order to embarrass Great Russia, then they shot down the plane in the Sinai. It is all part of an American plan. They want to destroy democracy in Russia in order to have American capitalists take over our Mother Russia.

M. Gee, that is a fascinating piece of information.

P. Not only is America out to destroy the Russian economy, it even now is behind the plot to portray our great athletes as using dope! We are the fastest runners in the world and we have the fastest growing economy. We WILL trim!

Our Buddy, Vladimir Putin

It was simply a matter of time before Barack Obama came round to the idea of using Russia to handle things in Syria. Vladimir is not bothered by legislatures, he is not bothered by people who vote since he knows the outcome of elections before they begin.It now looks as though Obama has come round to the idea of keeping Assad for a while in order to get Russian troops on the ground to handle the dirty work. Of course, if Russians engage ISIS then Islamic terrorists will be spending time blowing things up in Moscow rather than New York. Very clever of Obama is you ask me.

The alleged agreement would maintain Assad in office for a short term, no longer than a year to keep face for Iran and Russia.Then, most probably some Alawite general will suddenly appear, announce that Assad had an illness and was headed to Saudi Arabia for his health. No one can touch him in Saudi Arabia, Putin now can not be charged with abandoning a friend, and life goes on–and so does Death!

Rand Paul In Debate

Rand Paul stands at the end of the group in more ways than physically. He is completely the opposite of others on the stage. Actually, Rand Paul is the only traditional conservative in the crowd. He opposes any military effort in the Middle East, he points out in a very quiet voice that if one does what Carly desires and creates a “No Fly” are in Syria, that means some Russian planes might get shot down. Has anyone informed Carly that Russia has in its possession a few hundred atomic bombs. Rand understands the consequence of doing something in the name of being tough that ends up destroying the world.

Rand is against regulations.Then again, so is every Republican on the stage against “regulations.” Listening to him and the others blast any and all regulations leads one to wonder would they allow regulations in sport activities? Rand mumbled something about returning power to the states. I hate to inform this group but we once did that–the Articles of Confederation–which worked exactly as Republicans desire –no federal government and power to the states.

The result of this fiasco was the Constitutional Convention which created a strong federal government.

ISIS Bombs Away

There is increasing evidence that an ISIS bomb was responsible for the downing of a Russian plane in Egypt. The plane departed from a small airport and we can assume those in charge of checking bags did not perform up to high standards of security. So, ISIS, has responded to President Putin and his entry into the war in Syria. I am surprised that Putin just forgot the Russian fiasco in Afghanistan which resulted in the death of thousands of Russian soldiers and played a role in the collapse of the Soviet Union.

There are reports that Iranian generals in Syria are furious that Iran has entered the war. They are witnessing Iranian soldiers die and some general either have “retired” or have faced a court martial for refusing to carry out war orders. In other words, ISIS is winning the battle because it contains soldiers who BELIEVE in the fight.

Vladimir, you ain’t seen anything yet!

A Russian Plane Fell To The Ground

A Russian plane took off from an airport in Egypt and within twenty minutes reported problems and soon disintegrated and plunged to the ground and soon 222 people were dead. We offer several possible explanations for this event.

1. Putin planned the tragedy so he could blame someone or some group for economic problems inside Russia.

2. The Israel secret service, the Mossad,organized this event –if anything bad occurs in the world, just blame the Jews! Works for centuries.

3. Egyptian dictator General Sisi has an economic mess. Shift focus from his inept rule to some tragedy and at least no one is blaming this upon him.

4. An ISIS suicide bomber had the bombs on his underwear.

5. According to Ben Carson: “I really don’t know too much about Egypt. Is that the place with pyramids? And,this ISIS stuff, is this company seeking someone to push their products?”

6. Given the state of the Russian economy,there is nothing strange about anything built in Russia to disintegrate.

Anyway, innocent people are dead.
