Sex In Parliament?

The Parliament of England is among the most historic organizations in human history that long has stood for basic principles of democracy. Of course, until the twentieth century that hallowed institution was strictly a male preserve and females were best welcomed if they behaved with silence and proper respect for the good old boys who ran the place. Harriet Harman, deputy leader of the Labor Party in Parliament, informed the media there was need for an investigation into claims that female MPs and members of staff have been sexually harassed. She was joined in this claim by Amanda Platel who openly stated that she had been sexually harassed. She pointed out that a recent study revealed Parliament money was used to fund a nice gay sex party at a local hotel.

She was clear about the issue. “The truth is that there is an entrenched subculture of louche, predatory and deeply unpleasant behavior — the sad fact is that too many MPs live in an ammoral vacuum.” I get the feeling this feminist wants to deprive we men of our God given right to be sexual predators in the conflict between males and females. I guess she is just against God on this issue!

Fracturing Going Boom In Our Lives!

It is now a well established fact for both Democrats and Republicans that the first business of America is business. Whatever enhances the bottom line of corporations must be supported because when it comes to matters of funding the political process, the dollar is the highest point in our lives. Ohio geologists, you know, those smart folk who went to some college which taught them a lot of stuff, anyway, these people are now claiming there is something wrong with tracking. They actually claim there might be a connection between a few mild earthquakes in a region that never had any earthquakes because of this fracking stuff. This type of talk sounds to me like SOCIALISM. Imagine believing that our wealthy businessmen would ever do anything to disturb our peace and security.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources issued a very strange statement. They “believe the sand and water injected into the well during the hydraulic fracturing process may have increased pressure on an unknown micro fault in the area.” They have now shut down an energy company.

This is typical of the Socialists who run the Democratic party. Attacking Business, seeking things like higher wages–and lower profits– things that take money from job creators. Thank God for people like Ted Cruz whose Harvard education enables him to know there is no such thing as global warming, and certainly we all know that fracturing poses no problems–certainly none to profits!

Racism In Australia

For over a hundred years the country we know as Australia adhered to a strict White Only policy which prevented anyone whose skin was not white no opportunity to come and enjoy life down under. Of course, Australians had the Aborigines who predated the whites and thus had to enjoy being a second class citizen in the land of their ancestors. Eventually, economics intruded into the lives of Australians since they must trade with nations in Asia and thus they eventually had to allow THOSE PEOPLE to enter their shiny white shores. Naomi Priest, a professor at Deakin University has completed a study of racism encountered by immigrants over the past decade. In reality, there is no need for any study since common sense would result in a conclusion that racism is alive and doing OK in the land of the Aussies.

Priest discovered a common complaint directed at immigrants is: “you don’t belong in Australia.” Of course, aside from the Aborigines, no human belongs in Australia. And, of course, the Aborigines were once immigrants from Asia. About 14% note they have been physically attacked or spat on or pushed. About 10% claim teachers do not believe immigrants are capable of advanced academic work. Nothing surprising. An immigrant attends school, it can be a pleasant time or a stressful time. It really depends on how school officials handle the situation.

Just remember that every example in America of a school shooting was committed by a white, middle class student attending a suburban school in which they felt selves objects of hate.

Cuba The Once Revolutionary State

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago the people of Cuba rose in anger against their dictator, President Batista, and sent him fleeing to the riches he had in the United States of America. Fidel Castro and his merry band of rebels entered Havana and promised people that the evil times of oppression and brutality were at an end. To prove his point, dozens of those who served the Batista government were placed against a wall and shot. The idea of a trial by jury was not part of the Castro regime which wanted to end Batista’s denial of human rights. Ironically, when Castro in 1953 made his first attempt at revolution and was captured, he was put on trial and received a jail sentence. Alan Gross, an American came to Cuba in order to work with the small number of Jews still in the country. His goal was simply to aid them gain access to the Internet.

Naturally, in the democracy known as Castroland, the government alone decides what you can watch or with whom you can speak. Mr. Gross was sentenced to 15 years in jail, for attempting to overthrow the Batista regime, Fidel got a few years in jail. Mr. Gross attempted a hunger protest, but under pressure from his family, ended it. He added: “There will be no further protests until both governments show more concern for human beings and less for malice and derision towards each other.”

Too bad Gross did not attempt to overthrow the Batista dictatorship.

O.J. And Oscar On Trial

It is nearly twenty years since famous athlete O.J. Simpson was on trial charged with murdering a woman he allegedly loved. Oscar Pistorious, a white man in South Africa, is currently on trial for the murder of a woman that he allegedly loved. A white and a black man, a trial which has excited the world and offered ample opportunity for a crusading district attorney to make headlines and for the media to provide non-stop stories concerning the emotional state of the alleged murderer. We, the public, follow avidly each detail, each cross examination, we discuss the events while at work or with friends. We are fascinated, we devour key points that arrive dealing with the act of murder. Did HE really fire the shot or was there a third person who is the key witness to events that unfurled in the night of the murder?

Oh, what a glorious time for those in the media. But, there is something more important. We, the public, want this trial. We want an event in which someone who is powerful, a great athlete is confronting the issue of death and life. In the end, O.J. Simpson, was acquitted for the act of murder, but a large number of people continue to this day believe in his guilt and blame the media for allowing him to escape the death penalty. Ironically, today he is in jail for a different crime. So, what awaits Oscar? Will he escape only to fail at some future moment?

The only victor in either case was the media. So, will it be tomorrow.

Time For Truth Commission In America

Incoming President Barack Obama had many challenges, but none more important than how to handle the debacle of two invasions which had led to the death of thousands of Americans and wounding, mentally and physically, of over 40,000. Nelson Mandela in South Africa offered an excellent example of how a nation confronts evil in its past. He created the Truth and Reconciliation Committee which allowed any white person who had violated the rights -or even the life– of a black person under Apartheid could appear before the Commission, admit his guilt, apologize to the relatives of those who died, and was then given a pardon for his evil actions. This blog urged the new president to adopt this approach. Instead, Barack Obama said he did not wish to dwell on the past but only be concerned about the future. Today, we now are deep in anger over the past of what the CIA did, and hate grows stronger with each passing day.

The Senate Intelligence Committee under Dian Feinstein is furious and demands the complete truth from the White House which currently is in the position of defending those who violated the law. The Senate Committee believes “the CIA manipulated the media” by lying concerning the effectiveness of enhanced interrogation techniques. England established the Chilcot Commission which dealt with this issue openly and enabled those who suffered to hear the truth and those who tortured to admit their guilt. We NEED SUCH A PROCESS!

Condi Drops The Box!

In the search for the almighty dollar, Condoleezza Rice, along with the dynamic trio of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld, has ample opportunities to secure a nice position which makes her wealthy and gives her some power in our society. Condi decided to become a member on the Board of Dropbox, an organization which provides protection for our property and our secrets of life. According to the Board when asked why hire someone connected with the Bush violation of human life, the response was: “when looking to grow our board, we sought out a leader who could help us expand our global footprint.” We admit, Condi Rice is certainly connected with expanding American footprints all over the Middle East. Of course, her footprint sort of was pushed into the faces of those arrested on bogus charges.

A new site, Drop Dropbox poses a question: “Given everything we know about the United States’ warrantless surveillance program and Rice’s role in it, why would we want someone like her involved with Dropbox, an organization we are trusting with our most important business and personal data??” A great question and now we need a great answer!

Pope Francis, A Man Of God

We in America are struggling with how to confront our past, a past in our own lifetime in which those we elected to public office violated the American Constitution as well as international law and the moral foundation upon which we were raised. The Catholic Church is fortunate to have as its leader, a man who is not only of God, but speaks with the truth of everything that mankind has created in the way of human values. Appearing at the Catholic Children’s Bureau, he spoke with honesty and compassion to those who were abused by priests of the Catholic religion. He admitted that priests participated in abuse of children, and noted there were “quite a few in number.” He was quite clear the Church acknowledged what had transpired. It is personal moral damage carried out by men of the Church and we will not take one step backward ith regards with how we will deal with this problem,and the sanctions that must be imposed.”

Perhaps, Pope Francis might speak to the President of the United States and persuade him to take a similar stand with regards to violation of human rights by the CIA and the NSA. Oh, he might be joined in this stand by Bush/Cheney/Rumnsfeld!!

Life In Timberlake Not Sunny For Sunnie

The Timberlake Christian School in the state of Virginia is designed to teach young boys and girls how to be God loving decent Christian folk. However, in their midst is a young girl whose name is Sunnie Kahle and this young lady dares to wear her hair short and dress in jeans and tee shirts. She loves to play baseball and football and basketball and do things that God definitely designed to be done by boys. School officials, after making telephone calls to God Himself, have informed the grandmother of this child that her granddaughter has to get with the program–the one God designed. She was informed by school officials: “you’re probably aware that Timberlake Christian School is a religious Bible believing institution providing education in a distinctly Christian environment.” Ok, now that is clear, Sunnnie has to “understand that God made her female and her dress and behavior needs to follow with her Christian identity.”

Sunnie was made to understand that “sexual immorality” is not tolerated in this Christian school. Gee, I wonder how this applies to females playing in the NCAA basketball tournament. I guess it is time for them to dress appropriately when on the basketball floor of play. Dresses only permitted!
