Language and illiteracy
29 August 2014
The Levant did not receive its name from Levi, the patriarch of Israel’s
priesthood who murdered his sister’s husband and father-in-law and all
the other men of their city while they were healing from the
circumcision he demanded as her bride price, the great grandfather of
Moses. It received its name
from the Latin origin of the English words “lift” and “levitate” because
from Rome the Levant is in the direction of the rising sun.
But descendants of Levi’s brother Judah have tried to imperialize
it for three millennia.
Another piece of etymological misrepresentation is the notion that the
English word “law” originated from Levi’s name by way of the book of
Leviticus, the book of the Torah that extends the commandments the book
of Exodus says Moses received on Mount Sinai, far beyond what would fit
on two stone tablets Moses could carry.
The origin of the English word “law” is the French word “loi”
and also ultimately from Latin.
But Israel is behaving as though it has a legal right to the Levant, and
the Roman Catholic Church has removed Cardinal Law from legal
jurisdictions of children he permitted priests to molest, and we call
all that arrogant perverse hypocritical misrepresentation of the Bible
literally calls the Ten Words Judeo-Christian.
Branch Davidian baloney
28 August 2014
Last week a “journalist” asked the Defense Department’s primary
spokesman whether the Pentagon could spend sooner funds congress has
approved for fiscal year 2015.
Admiral Kirby might well have asked her whether she plays the
lottery because learning to earn her way in the world requires more time
than she’s willing to spend.
The United States government’s fiscal year 2015 begins in five weeks.
Similarly media pundits are calling ISIL’s behavior Islamic and
medieval, ignoring the land-grabbing rampage from Europe to the Levant
by which Christians defined the Middle Ages and the Roman Catholic
inquisitions that extended from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance,
and ignoring behavior like ISIL’s the Bible says Israel inflicted on its
neighbors more than a millennium before the Qur’an began the Middle
My question, if people with college educations spend so little time
trying to understand what they say, is how we can expect any of us to
understand each other.
Bigotry and greed and hate define religious hypocrisy, and other
examples are people praying to win the lottery, and praying to kill as
the Bible says David did.
Peace is not a high priority for people treating the “Prince of Peace”
as a liar.

Lindsey Graham ignored Iran and Israel to say ISIL is “the most
prominent terrorist organization in the world.”
ISIL is not a state, but Israel is a state with nuclear weapons
after originating as what both the United Kingdom and the United States
called a terrorist organization, and Iran is a state progressing toward
having nuclear weapons. ISIL
is more violent than either Iran or Israel but lacks their prominence or
But the weirdest part is that the world’s greatest democracy calls Iran
a “state sponsor of terror” but calls Israel a democracy.
This week the Israeli government destroyed the homes of 43
Palestinian families, saying its motive was to destroy one Hamas office
in the apartment building, and people like Lindsey Graham call that
behavior self-defense. The
Bible says God withdrew his promise of land to Israel because of its
Compare the Israeli theocracy to slavery in the United States.
General Sherman issued a “field order” to give land to slaves who
had worked it as slaves, but General Grant rescinded that order soon
after his election to the United States Presidency, and Grant didn’t
claim to be God. And the
Israelites didn’t work the Promised Land before they claimed that God
promised it to them and ordered them to murder all its inhabitants.
Creeping catastrophic commercialism
26 August 2014
CNN’s Jim Sciutto asked Saturday whether ISIL is “the new Taliban.”
The Taliban originated as the
political leadership of the Mujahedeen, a coalition of Afghan tribes the
United States government helped defend Afghanistan against the Soviet
invasion, and one difference between ISIL and the Taliban is that the
United States gave the Taliban weapons before ISIL stole weapons the
United States gave the Iraqi government, while another difference is
that the Taliban has never threatened the United States homeland.
Another difference is that the Taliban never used a British
rapper to behead anyone.
Sciutto also asked whether the father of a Dutch ISIL volunteer was like
his son. The father had
risked his own life to travel to the Levant to bring his son home, and
Sciutto’s question was in response to the father’s saying that Muslims
in the Levant called him heroic, as though anyone who receives praise
from any Muslim must be a terrorist.
CNN is a terrorist organization, broadcasting prejudicial hateful
bigotry, to the masses.
Mass media terrorize the masses in that way.
And such prejudicial generalization throws masses of bystanders
to people like ISIL and al Qaeda.
Consider the Bedouins in Canaan and the Kuchis in Afghanistan
trying to mind their ancient peaceful business.
The Missouri compromise
25 August 2014
By saying they’re on the side of the family, CNN’s Legal View “anchor”
questioned the credibility of witnesses of the murder of Michael Brown,
but she didn’t question the credibility of Wilson’s friend who wasn’t
there. Early in the
reporting of the debacle in Ferguson, a government pundit said that he
would say that Ferguson’ police were like the Keystone Kops, but that he
didn’t wish to insult the Keystone Kops.
I would say the same about most of the United States’ media and
government pundits policing the First Amendment and ask why we the
people keep swallowing their hogwash.
CNN’s Jake Tapper is like MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, and the two of them are
like Fox News’ Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld, elitist trivial callous
ignorant partisan yuppies.
To have their jobs they must have relatively high IQ’s and relatively
extensive educations. But,
apparently, neither IQ nor education indicates responsibility or common
It’s commercialism. Those
people are playing to their target audience, the target market of the
people who pay their networks, for advertising.
“Smart” is synonym for “slick.”
The jungle books
24 August 2014
East is east, and west is west, and CNN knows neither the difference nor
the relationship. Media and
government pundits are calling Islam an eastern Religion and using the
word “western” to refer to behavior different from ISIL terrorism.
The “L” in ISIL refers to the Levant, and the Levant is in the
western hemisphere, and Islam is as Judeo-Christian as Christianity and
Of the half dozen most popular religions of Earth, three of them
originated in the orient, and three in the occident.
The three occidental religions are Judaism and Christianity and
Islam while the three oriental religions are Hinduism and Buddhism and
Taoism. And, for whatever
reason, Judaism is the least popular.
I think it’s because Judaism is the most exclusive.
Only Judaism treats converts eternally as strangers.
And it’s not only the most xenophobic, but also the most violent
of the six, more than most U.S. soldiers in Vietnam.
Rabbits with guns
23 August 2014
Obama said that no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.
Apparently, Obama hasn’t read the 31st chapter of the
fourth book of the Torah, the book of Numbers.
Radical Judaism motivates what U.S. media and government pundits
call radical Islam.
Obama also said a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st
Century. Israelis are
behaving as the Bible says Israelites did nearly 21 centuries before the
Qur’an initiated Islam. And
nothing in the Qur’an is as murderous or otherwise violent as is ISIL or
that chapter of the Bible.
ISIL is neither Islamic nor a state.
It’s a reaction to the Judaic state that has terrorized the
Levant since before the Zionist terrorist organization Irgun we’ve made
its government bombed the King David Hotel.
Israel murdered dozens of nurses there.
The American nightmare
22 August 2014
Asking Ferguson citizens to stay at home is like asking Gaza citizens to
die playing dead, and asking them not to gather in public is like asking
them not to vote at polls, but that’s what Missouri government is asking
them to do. A way to prove
that the looters aren’t residents of Ferguson is for the residents to
stay at home after dark, and let police arrest the outsiders.
But the value of that depends on the police reporting honestly.
An indication that racism is alive and sick in the United States is
people saying the present here is “post racial.”
Humanity will be racial until after countless generations of
interracial marriage, and humanity probably will be racist that long
also, all over earth. And
the discrepancy between how media report rich white folks and poor black
folks on drugs is another indication.
Media reporters showed pity for Jack Kerouac and Elvis Presley killing
themselves with drugs while less than fifty years old and for Michael
Jackson. Jackson tried to
make himself appear and sound white and married Presley’s daughter.
“He might have been on something,” said a CNN reporter, of
Shots heard around the world
21 August 2014
Missouri is embarrassing all of the United States of America.
“No justice, no peace” is an appropriate motto for both Ferguson and
Gaza. But we humans often
use the word “justice” as though it’s a synonym for “vengeance.”
Actually vengeance is a hole in which we bury both justice and
peace beneath violence.
And CNN’s attention deficit disorder accords with that.
CNN showed witnesses in Ferguson saying that Wilson shot at Brown
while he was running away and kept shooting when Brown turned around and
raised his hands. But now
CNN is ignoring the second part of that and saying that the autopsy
disagrees with the witnesses by indicating that the shots hit brown from
And CNN is ignoring that the autopsy also indicates two shots to the
back of Brown’s head and that one of those shots was from above his head
and accordingly suggests that he was either running with his head back
or bowing forward in sumbission.

The color gray
20 August 2014
The only difference between what police officer Darren Wilson did to a
black person in Ferguson and what army officer William Calley did to
“little yellow people” in My Lai is the number of persons each murdered.
Racism is a form of xenophobia, and xenophobia rises from
ignorance, and ignorance rises from egocentrism.
And it’s all basic to war, whether or not police have military
weapons, as James Earl Ray proved.
Al Sharpton’s soliciting offerings to the family with help from others
who have jumped on the commercial bandwagon distracts from the main
problem. But his bringing
the third Martin Luther King to the gathering in the church pointed
straight to it. And King’s
eloquence on notice so short proved his understanding of the mission of
But let’s also remember that Calley was a junior whose father owned a
jewelry store in which he worked after his jail time.
Apparently both the sins and the sensitivity of the fathers pass
on from generation to generation.

Relationships and differences
19 August 2014
Lyndon Johnson, after signing the Voting Rights Act to suck votes from
African Americans, built in Vietnam a military force of more than a half
million United States citizens to kill what he called little yellow
people. Now the Governor of
Missouri is trying to turn Missouri state police Captain Ron Johnson
into his uncle Tom and is trying to hide behind him, and he’s likely to
try to blame Johnson for the failures of himself and of the Mayor of
Ferguson and of Ferguson’s police chief, if not for the Ferguson police
officer’s murdering Michael Brown.
The party of Jefferson Davis is alive and sick.
And MSNBC, the Jefferson Davis network, is presenting Jewish pundits
ignoring Israel’s similar behavior against Palestinians to decry the
racism in Ferguson. And
Saturday MSNBC presented as a pundit the Uncle Tom police chief of
Cincinnati. And all the
Ferguson mayor needs to do to diffuse the situation is arrest the

Eyeless in America
18 August 2014
Jericho now has no wall around it, but Israel has built a wall around
itself with Jericho outside it, and Israel has walled in Gaza.
One question I have is how Israelis think they have a right to
block Gaza from the Mediterranean Sea and accordingly all the surface of
Earth outside Israel. And
another question I have is why Egyptians think Israelis have a right to
bombard Egypt against Gaza.
United States government and media pundits say that Israeli bombardment
of tunnels to Egypt and Palestinian refugees in Egypt is for the
protection of Israel, and the Egyptian government that’s hardly more
stable than the Afghan government and recently was as unstable as the
Iraqi government is negotiating between Gaza and Israel, while it might
reasonably be siding with Gaza in self-defense.
Israel is political cancer in the Levant, and it has been since Joshua
fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumbling down.
The best the United States government could do for the Levant
peace and in turn world peace is to let the people of the Levant force
Israelis to tear down their walls.
But, instead, the United States government brings heat on its
people by its unfair imbalance.
Fiction and fraud
17 August 2014
CNN and other TV networks have said Robin Williams was a street
performer when a producer made him Mork on Happy Days.
IMDB and Wikipedia say that after training at Julliard he
performed in nightclubs and that his first television performance was on
Laugh-In. CNN also said
people on Mount Sinjar rationed water with bottle caps while they had so
much of it that they didn’t bother touching a pallet of it the U.S.
ABC’s Peter Jennings was the last person to work his way from
investigative journalism to being the principal evening news anchor for
any of the three major broadcast television networks.
He reported combat from combat zones and the civil rights
movement of the sixties from the streets and reported precisely.
Compare that to Diane Sawyer’s and David Muir’s previous
And, until he announced his resignation because of it at the end of his
last evening of anchoring ABC World News Tonight, Jennings never
mentioned his cancer on television.
Compare that to what Robin Roberts has been doing for years from
Sawyer’s previous venue.
Commercializing sickness is a kind of terrorism.
Restraint and constraint
16 August 2014
Malcolm X didn’t say what means are necessary.
The Mayor of Ferguson said police have a right to “lose their
tempers in tense situations.”
His police officers arrested journalists in a McDonalds trying to
use the WIFI there to file their reports online.
Jehanne of Domremy took a sword into battle but didn’t use it.
She had but two hands, and she used one of them for the reins of
her horse and the other to hold her banner.
Her sword remained in its scabbard, but the troops under her
command used their swords to kill, raising the question of whether they
were her weapons.
That Mayor, by defending the murderous police officers under his
command, raises that question under less dire circumstances.
Jehanne was defending her homeland from foreign invaders.
Michael Brown was a resident of Ferguson.
Religion and relinquishing
15 August 2014
In Thailand, for Hollywood and us, Robin Williams shouted, “Good
morning, Vietnam.” In Iraq,
for United States troops, he waited while his audience turned away from
him to the sound of a bugle playing Retreat for the day and saluted.
Williams told those troops that had never happened to him, an
entire audience turning away from him saying, “Forget him!”
That bugle call signals the end of a duty day, but the troops are
ready to respond to any call to duty at any time, and their response to
the sound showed that.
“Karma,” contrary to the sixties San Francisco flower child notion that
it’s punishment for bad acts, is a Sanskrit word for work that Hindus
use to refer to returning to realization of the omnipresence of God by
way of doing the best we can with our life.
The Bhagavad Gita, a Hindu song of God, says a warrior must go to
war and fight and kill because he’s a warrior.
But it says God decides every action because everyone is God.
Dealing drugs is a major industry in Thailand, and many U. S. troops
tragically learned that on “rest and recuperation” from Vietnam, and
also I’ve heard that Bob Dylan is a heroin addict.
Whatever their troubles, Dylan and Williams have not buried their
talents, their gifts from God.
Thailand and San Francisco have killed others more quickly.
Sinking the intrepid
14 August 2014
Fox News’ The Five, like MSNBC’s The Ed Show, is a show I can’t bring
myself to suffer. But
Monday, which is one of my two weekly MSNBC nights, I switched from The
Ed Show to The Five long enough to see if it was the same five.
It was, and its principal one said Muslims “have been fighting
for three thousand years” before another irregular regular said
red-headed Islamists are rare.
Muhammad founded Islam by delivering the Qur’an less than 1500
years ago. And, unlike
Judaism, Islam isn’t a genetic heritage.
The evangels and other apostles who wrote the New Testament ignored the
Immaculate Conception to say Jesus descended from Judah.
But that ignorance is the only complaint Muhammad made against
Christianity in the Qur’an, as the only one against Judaism is against
people calling themselves Judaic, ignoring their own prophets.
And Mormon’s preach that anyone can be Jewish by deciding to be
Jewish and say that natives of North America are Judaic.
So why is the United States government siding with the descendants of
Judah? Morocco, most of
whose people became Muslims less than a century after Muhammad founded
Islam, was the first nation to recognize the United States as an
independent nation about two centuries after Muhammad founded Islam!
And the United States Ship Constitution gained its fame fighting
with Moroccans against Barbary pirates.
Thoughts and prayers and legalese
13 August 2014
How is what the “Islamic state” is doing to the Kurds different from
what the “Jewish state” is doing to the Palestinians?
Neither former Air Force lawyer Lindsey Graham nor his boss
former Navy pilot John McCain has strategic military experience!
Strategic is Israel sucking others into making and taking hits
for Israel. And media
pundits are “recognizing” the “Islamic State” as a state with a
“caliphate!” How ignorant is
Yes, the world is in turmoil, but the question is why.
The question is why people are killing each other, and the answer
is not that all Muslims are terrorists or that all Jews are
imperialists, or that God by any name told anyone to kill anyone.
The answer is that imperialism from Israeli leadership has made
some Palestinians so desperate for their unalienable rights that some of
them are willing to sacrifice their lives for others’ lives.
And that’s the definition of martyrdom and isn’t particular to Islam.
Yes, the Holocaust was the most horrible act of humanity, but
remembering it for the purpose of vengeance or recompense against people
who took no part in it is also horribly humane!
Humanity shall not be at peace until humans stop pitching
themselves blindly into the vicious cycle of vengeance that humans
insanely euphemistically call justice and closure.
Beggars and choosers
12 August 2014
On CNN, a Politico pundit said Islamic children said they’d rather be a
Jihadist in reply to the question: “Which would you rather be, a suicide
bomber, or a jihadist?”
Suicide, to United States government and media pundits, is a method of
jihad. According to the
Qur’an, jihad is only for self-defense, the opposite of suicide.
So those kids were only saying they didn’t wish to kill
themselves. Ignorance is a
main means to mass murder.
TV advertisements beg contributions to Israel’s economy, but on Fox
News’ Sunday Morning Futures yesterday a Jewish pundit said Israel’s
economy is a success because the Israeli government drafts all Israeli
children into the Israeli army before college, teaching them to make
decisions in a diversity of situations.
Actuality includes that Alan Greenspan is Judaic, while other
Judaic people dominate other United States banking and the United
States’ mass media, while United States taxpayers bolster Israel’s
economy. And Islamic men’s
attitude toward women was in the Bible, in the eleventh chapter of
Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthians, a half millennium before the

Shooting from hippies
11 August 2014
Proving his Judaism, CNN’s Jive Jake Turkey Tapper called ISIS “blood
thirsty jihadists,” ignoring the facts that ISIS is murdering Muslims
and that the Qur’an says that Jihad is only to defend Muslims.
Tapper’s talking in popular culture clichés is like Marie Osmond
sucking up to Mormon sexism by saying “as women we’re always worried
about how we look.” Imagine
why John Lenin married Yoko Ono.
ISIS is now calling itself the Islamic State, in response to Israel’s
demanding that everyone call Israel a Judaic state, and violently
emulating other insane Israeli bigotry.
ISIS is murdering Christians as Israel murdered Rachel Corrie as
al Qaeda murdered thousands of citizens of the United States because the
United States’ government of the people supports Israel’s keeping anyone
not Jewish out of its government and murdering anyone it can who has a
problem with that.
The marriage of Irish Lenin and Japanese Ono was a statement against
Johnson’s drafting United States citizens to send them to Vietnam to
kill “little yellow people.”
My year in Vietnam with the United States Army taught me that most
Vietnamese didn’t know the difference between communism and capitalism.
They had too little wealth either to invest or to share but knew
we were trying to kill them.
Busting Kennedy busts
10 August 2014
Obamas enemies are two classes of the religious wrong and many classes
of people too lazy to pay attention to facts.
The two classes of religious wrong are Tea Party Republicans
calling themselves the “religious right” but worship mammon and hate
their neighbors not of their race and people of other political parties
and religious claims complaining that Obama’s doing too little to
support Israel’s behaving in the same way.
Fox News is the Tea Party network, but the Jefferson Davis party network
MSNBC featured this week a summer camp in Maine where Palestinian and
Israeli adolescents played together.
One of the Israeli adolescents said she hopes the play will teach
the Palestinian adolescents to understand the Israelis “even though most
of them are terrorists.” And
the MSNBC reporter, the Jewish wife of a Jewish former Chairman of the
United States’ Federal Reserve Board, called that “refreshing.”
Fox News says the United States’ invasion should continue while MSNBC
says it shouldn’t have begun, but both cheered when troops of the United
States Army used a tank to pull down a statue of Saddam Hussein, when
Iraqis apparently were unable to do it.
We the people of the United States, despite our talk of
unalienable rights, try to alienate others’.
And partisanship is mainly but another form of random bigotry.

Putin is a populist punk.
He’s neither a monarchist nor a Marxist.
He’s antithetical both to Gorbachev and the old men of the
Kremlin Gorbachev undercut.
His “improvement” of the economy during his first term as President
turned the national department store near Red Square into a luxury
shopping mall but filled it with goods few Russians are able to buy.
And rural Russians continue to live as poorly as they lived
Near the end of Putin’s first term as President, I saw that on a trip by
public bus from Moscow to Tula, the town nearest to Tolstoy’s estate
where he built the first school for serfs.
Behind the bus station was a mall with outlets for Gucci and
Calvin Klein, but inside the bus station was a toilet with no toilet
paper and holes in the floor instead of toilets, and a woman charged the
equivalent of about a dime for admission to it.
And, between Moscow and Tula, clothing hung freezing on
clotheslines over produce gardens outside ramshackle houses.
Putin is more like Stalin than like either Khrushchev or Peter the
Great. Stalin promised
Russia the sharing of communism but gave it the greed of totalitarianism
as has Putin, but Khrushchev had the sense to blink at Kennedy’s push
toward nuclear confrontation while Putin behaves as Kennedy.
And Putin’s malls are not the window to the west Peter made of
Petrograd but a one way mirror reflecting himself against Russia’s poor.
Dividing into unions to fall
8 August 2014
Murder is always both offensive and defensive.
Jimmy Hoffa acquired much wealth from people whose wealth he
increased. Whoever removed
him from our presence must have desired both more from Hoffa and more
for himself. So an Afghan
soldier murdered a United States general in his chain of command.
And such is why Palestinians
Hoffa was a gangster.
“Gangster” is a term we use to denigrate members of gangs of people we
don’t like, but other gangs of people are unions and political parties
and religions and nations and armies and sports teams, whose fans behave
as gangsters. Al Qaeda and
the government of Israel are gangs whose members behave as gangsters as
are the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan.
A “spokesman” for the United States Army said United States government
personnel “vetted” the Afghan soldier who killed the general before
training him to defend his nation.
The United States Department of Defense is a gang that is
behaving as gangsters toward Afghans.
Anyone whom the killing of the general surprises is as crazy as
most sports fans.
Uniting the fall
7 August 2014
Menachem Begin and Jimmy Carter and Anwar Sadat, a Jew and a Christian
and a Muslim, met at Camp David in 1978.
The name of the meeting place is appropriate, since Begin’s
Zionist terrorist organization Irgun bombed the King David Hotel in
Jerusalem two years before the United Nations recognized Irgun as the
government of Israel thirty years before the meeting.
Israel has never kept its Camp David promises.
Also appropriate to the situation is that King David was the Judaic king
who separated Judah from the other tribes of Israel by trying to be the
king of all of them. The
Torah says God promised the land of Canaan to all the descendants of
Abraham, but Judaic people now say he promised it only to descendants of
Abraham’s great grandson Judah, and they’re killing descendants of
Abraham’s and Isaac’s and Jacob’s other sons to take it.
And, of United States Presidents, only Carter has pointed that
The United Nations recognizes the facts, but United States President
Harry Truman pushed the United Nations to call Irgun the government of
Israel, in recompense for the Holocaust.
Truman’s mother was a descendant of Jacob and Rachel Jung, German
Jews who immigrated to New York the year before the signing of the
Declaration of Independence, and changed their name to Young to
assimilate. That wasn’t

We’re not dead because we can’t die.
Scientists say the universe began with
a big bang.
But, if nothing existed before the
bang, the most reasonable question to ask in response to that “science”
is what banged.
The most popular oriental religions say
that you’re the universe and that the variety of existence you call
reality is what you’re imagining.
An inference is that you’ve always
existed but have imagined yourself into forgetting your existence before
your imagining your current limit of imagination.
But the most popular occidental
religions say God imagined you in his image.
They describe God as having your
limitation of imagination.
I’m a Hindu Buddhist Taoist who accepts
much of what the Gospels say Jesus said but little of what the apostles
say he meant.
In her Gospel, the Magdalena agrees
with me, but Paul and apostles who walked with Jesus kept her Gospel out
of the Bible.
The first sentence of what they didn’t
destroy of her Gospel defines what Taoists call the way, the process of
recognizing that you’re hallucinating, of returning to absolute reality,
the truth that makes you free, nirvana.
I once decided to imagine myself homeless and spent two years wandering
across the United States earning my food by working carnival and day
labor construction and landscaping.

sickness not kill them despite Jesus saying everyone has eternal life
either in Heaven or in Hell.
And it’s evident in the many Synagogues
and Mosques in which people ignore that their scriptures tell them to
love their neighbors and not to commit suicide.
They murder their neighbors, sometimes
by killing themselves along with their neighbors, from faithless
The words “God” and “good” are etymologically synonymous.
Some people demonstrate their faith in
one or the other or both by doing whatever their heart tells them is
College students in the United States
did that a half century ago without preaching any sectarian religion.
Now they prefer pot.

To avoid going to Vietnam to kill what Johnson called little yellow
people, many citizens of the United States defected to Canada while many
others defected into drugs, and many on return from Vietnam joined the
New York Times has depicted
Old Glory as a marijuana-spangled banner while our Secretary of State is
defending the racism that prompted the murder of three thousand people
in New York City’s finance center a few blocks from New York City’s
largest homeless shelter.
And Kerry begged Purple Hearts to
return from Vietnam to stand beside the flower children.
CNN aired an IDF Colonel saying Israel gave Palestinians the concrete
they use to reinforce the tunnels they built to circumvent Israel’s
If Hamas is trying to use those tunnels
to attack Israel, their effort is failing as Palestinian efforts to use
those tunnels to circumvent Israel’s blockade of food and medical
supplies to Gaza are failing.
And Wolf Blitzer, while that Colonel
spewed his hogwash on him in one of those tunnels, didn’t ask him why
Israel would provide concrete but refuse food.
And Coward Kerry talks as Yahoo Netanyahu, and he has “State Department
spokesmen” trying to defend his asininity in the same asinine terms as
though defending his asininity is a step toward solving the problems
he’s helping Netanyahu create.
What that Colonel and Netanyahu and
Kerry and his toadies say suggests that they’re hallucinating.
They’re as delusional as Hashbury

Journalists are on the ground in Gaza.
None of them are reporting seeing
rockets on the ground in the residential neighborhoods or refugee camps
or hospitals where they’re reporting bombs killing people on the ground.
Yet Israelis are saying that the
rockets are there, and the journalists are saying that they might be
there but are invisible, as they’re saying the tunnels are for
transporting weapons and not necessary for food.
We choose a side, and next we choose to think that side is always right
and never wrong, and that’s why we’re treating Netanyahu as a
ventriloquist and ourselves as his dummies.
Such is why people from Boston commit
violent crimes against people from New York because people from New York
prefer Yankees to Red Sox.
And we teach our children to be as
maniacal and to call that pastime a proud American tradition.
