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.

The Mets Are Went Down To Defeat

I do realize this blog is supposed to focus upon world events and issues of importance to humankind. Well, for some of us,baseball and football and basketball are a lot more important than who ISIS killed today.The New York Mets were killed, no, murdered, by their incompetence and the pitchers of the Kansas City Royals. These are not joyous days in the city of New York. First,we had to deal with idiots from Texas or the states of the South who continue electing men and women who would fail getting through elementary school, and now we have to endure a bunch of hicks from Kansas City doing harm to our lives.

Let me explain the reasons for the Mets losing the World Series:

1, Barack Obama caused the Ebola scare and since he finished with that one he decided to scare New Yorkers. Remember, he comes from Hawaii, wherever that place is.

2. Ted Cruz never got a chance to filibuster the umps and that’s why the Mets lost.

3. John Boehner cried for the Kansas City Royals,but not one tear for the Mets!

4. Met players were forced to listen to Ben Carson explaining his tax program and they just fell asleep. Unfortunately,they kept on sleeping on the baseball field.

5. Donald Trump is from New York.The Met Hispanic players were afraid he would send them back to the Dominican Republic or Mexico or wherever and they were afraid to get hits against the gringoes.


We offer observations on the human condition from a 25 year old mind trapped in an 85 year old body.


Ivy League colleges should check out their professors who produced students like,Cruz,Rubio and Rand.

I so wich in my personal life to tell creditors I refuse to pay my debts.

Hillary has learned to relax and give it to THEM!

Republican mantra: After me, the Deluge! Who the hell cares!

Carly comes across as a shrew.

Ben Carson is simply IGNORANT.

Donald has not uttered a rant in an entire week!

Russia In Syria

Republicans are up in arms because Russian arms are now in Syria. They insist America should not allow Russia to have any role in the mess that is known as the Middle East. Flash back thirty five years. Russian troops entered Afghanistan in order to protect a Communist government in that land. Their entry aroused fear in the American government and the CIA headed for the region and began to hand out hundreds of millions of dollars of military equipment. A short version of this story reveals that eight years later Russian troops departed Afghanistan leaving complete chaos that resulted in the rise of the Taliban.

Among the consequences of the Russians in Afghanistan was the creation of al-Qaeda and the Taliban. So, Russians, please come to Syria. The end result will be the death of thousands of Russians and growing anger toward Putin in his homeland. Russian troops and planes will gain some initial victories, but suicide bombers will soon appear in Russia and its Muslim population will include thousands of terrorists causing death and destruction–not in Syria–but in Mother Russia.

Treason In Russia

In many respects, Vladimir Putin shares many of the attitudes and programs of Donal Trump. Both believe fervently that if one shouts and rants any opposing person will flee the scene. Both insist they have a “plan,”the contents of which are so secret that it is contrary to security of the nation to divulge its contents. Thus, the fervor within Russia for security and thus the fear of treason.

During the past year there have been 17 cases in which a person was accused of the high crime of TREASON in Russia. For example, Svetlana Davydov called the Ukraine Embassy in Moscow and told them she had seen troops headed for Ukraine. Naturally, this was an act of TREASON. Any comment concerning Ukraine, unless it agrees with the Russian government is TREASON. If one works for an NGO that received $1 from a foreign government, this is an act of TREASON.

Oh, if you are charged with Treason, your defense lawyer will be someone appointed by the Russian government.

Anyone For Oatmeal?

There is no question that out of the rubble that was once the Soviet Union, a major military power, there has now emerged a new Russian military that is able to wage war. Russia is displaying modern military equipment in Syria, it is demonstrating an ability to organize military action against an enemy. It is clear there is now a new Russian military that is quite effective. However, President Vladimir Putin continues to feel neglected by the world. No American official is hailing his efforts in Syria to destroy enemies of President Assad.

“I don’t understand how the US criticizes Russia’s actions in Syria.” He is scornful of President Obama’s unclear policies of war in Syria. Putin feels these policies reflect a leader who has “oatmeal in his head,” in other words, is simply mush. The US insists that Russia work with it in destroying ISIS while Russia seeks to destroy the other forces which oppose Assad.

To put it simply– there is no clear policy in Syria, and there is no likelihood of any coherent action in the future.

The Holy War Now!

I am constantly told by Americans who want boots on the ground in Syria as long as they are not their boots, that the fiasco in Syria is Obama’s follies. I am informed that America is losing the Middle Eastern war–the exact one is not usually identified– because Russia is now in the Middle East. Al-Qaeda has now issued a call for a jihad, and guess what, for the first time it is NOT against the US, but dear old Russia. “The new Russian invasion is the last arrow in the quiver of the enemies of the Muslims.”

So, here is the good news, we Americans just don’t rate at the level of Russians. We are now a second rate power which will suffer the consequences of not having their young men die. God Bless Putin, but out hearts go out to those who will die in a war far from their homeland, far from their wives, but close to the power demands of Vladimir Putin.

Please Putin, proceed before us, take the limelight on center stage.

Putin Moves His Queen Chess Piece

Vladimir Putin is a chess player and the game today is taking place in Syria. He has moved his chess pieces -planes, soldiers, missiles –into Syria. He is convinced this show of force will intimidate and defeat groups such as ISIS, but especially Syrians who hate Assad and want him to leave the office of president. It is a big gamble for Putin. One might say, a chess game which is truly–winner take all. What most probably will be the outcome of this chess game?

1. Russian troops will die. That is the bad news. The good news is that in authoritarian Russia, the populace is cowed and will not protest.

2. Russian troops at this moment have high morale. That sense of being in charge will rapidly change to one of being beleaguered.

3. The Russian air bombing simply can not and will not work. This approach to dealing with guerrillas has failed time after time.

4. Most probably at some moment, Putin will force Assad to leave. Putin does not handle defeat very well. Entering Syria is a lose-lose proposition and someone has to take the blame– Assad.

Vladimir, Welcome To Bomb Town

Well,the Putin boys have arrived in town only to receive a warm welcome from ISIS,the Free Syrian Army and just about every bomb crazy person in the Syrian conflict. Captain Mustafa of the Free Syrian Army is happy at the opportunity to blast away at Russians,and over at ISIS headquarters, the welcome mat is out for any and all Russians. Since the Russians are more interested in democratic forces opposed to President Assad, their main focus has been upon groups that seek the end of Assad rather than on ISIS which seeks the end of everyone, and that includes Russians.

Back in 1980, the Russian army marched into Afghanistan feeling they were on a picnic. Eight years later, after the death of thousands–of Russians, the Russian army meekly marched out. Captain Mustafa noted about Russians: “you don’t know what you’ve got yourself into.”

Explaining Syria

Recent events in Syria have not been discussed in the American media, aside from calls for “more boots on the ground” Few American analysts have given the public an understanding of what is transpiring in Syria.

1. President Assad is frightened. He is scared of his allies in Iran. Assad now grasps that the Ayatollahs in Tehran are ready to dump him and get what they can from Syria.

2. The Iran Revolutionary Guard has grown powerful in Syria to the point where it is making decisions about the country’s future. The Iranians believe they no longer need Syrians in leadership positions.

3. The Alewives, from which Assad comes, are not the same type of Muslims as those in Iran. As one noted, “They are turning us back a thousand years. We don’t wear headscarves and we aren’t Shiites.”

4. Assad fears that Hezbollah will carve out a piece of Syria that borders Lebanon and just forget about Syria.

5. So, Assad has called in the Russians to balance Iran.

6. And, Putin wants Syria to be close to Russia so if Iran gains power in Syria, goodbye Russia!
