Socialism in all it’s Glory

Venezuela riots, as Maduro tries to hold power. The socialist framers of their government could not crunch the numbers enough to keep basic economic tributaries open, and handing out goodies.  Venezuela  the Socialist Poster child of middle America, teeters on disintegrating into a “failed state”.

The grand Poobah of socialism,  Vladimir Putin, has visited with Maduro in reassurance that he will and a few other socialist governmants will be there as a lifeline for the declining country. Yeah and his other great ally is Syria, from which over a million have fled for their lives. Good luck with your trust issues boys!

French police are on fire as Paris burns  over what initialy was a 30% rise in gas taxes. Gas, over 7 dollars a gallon , was targeted for the rise in taxes. This triggard a long list of greivances addressed by the rioters for what is turning into a second week of fire and nightsticks in several cities across France. Near the end of the linked article Macron states a strong anarchist movement is afoot in France and that is one of his difficulties. Maybe a they finally took an economics course and figured it out.  Margaret Thatcher said,….”The problem with socialism is that you eventually run jout of other peoples money”.

More police on fire in Greece as the government fights insolvency. Their Socialist government cannot subsidize any more migrant incursion. This author. in his last visit to Greece, saw a large number of beggars of the streets downtown, peppering the sidewalk in all forms of dramatic repose all the way the foot of the Acropolis.

Germans are taking a soaking during a little curbside discussion of the migration problems. Herr Merkal is on the brink of a no-confidence vote and still shakes her little fist and demands open borders for Germany as well as all EU members

Briton, the great granddaddy of socialst sympathies, is showing rare good sense in fighting to extract itself from the Euro-cluster fuck of the mess going on in other European nations.

Lets Talk Turkey


A couple days after Paris was attacked. A high minister of Turkey said that all is well with ISIS Caliphate and we may as well get used to it and begin normalizing our relationship with the new, entirely Muslim country….

Sermons from Paris Mosques  on that fateful day carried a different message. None of it consiliatory….                    My ex-brother in law is always shaking his head and wisely murmuring,  “You Americans are so ignorant. You speak from your ignorance.”  He rolls his eyes and sighs at the pitiable ignorance of the average American.  I do agree with him, there are a load of ignorant and just intellectually lazy people. He gives no answer that you can decipher. He just snuggles down into his smug contemplation of or American silliness.

I do want to issue a rebuke to my countrymen for working overtime giving everyone the impression that Americans are idiots.  I don’t waste too much time exploring college campuses for intelligent people these days.

But the fact of the matter makes an appearance when any random crowed of Muslims gather together. They cheered 911 across the Arab world. Huge crowds. Just as the turkeys of Turkey shouted boo during the moment of silence for the victims of the Paris bombing. A random sample of Turks who are attending a soccer match produces a horde of ISIS cheer leaders who are utterly fearless in their expression of hatred for the west. Of course they are fearless, they know they are in a crowed of people  who won’t object. Over and over the Arab street is in chorus with the bad guys. So where are the middle of the road Muslims? Hmmmmm? No massacre too bloody for their tastes. No vile act repugnant enough to cause a moment of caution. 

You will find the middle of the road Muslims hanging with the  Dodo’s.







POTUS elects to carp at GOP for serving as a recruitment tool for ISIS?  He calls Paris a setback. I wonder what the reaction would have been if France stated that 911 was just a ‘setback’. 

Again his competence to lead is called into question.  People are dying and dead. The world is on fire. Chicken little is fried. The rabbit died?, (ages me doesn’t it), all forms of harbinger  are spent and the handwriting on the wall is the last word. “Washington is next.” So say ISIS.

President Obama,  springing to action in response to the terrorist attack on our long term ally, France,   CHEWED OUT REPUBLICANS! Are we Duh-oomed by our dear POTUS? (Duh-oomed is when you get socked by someone because of your leaders stupidity.) DUH-OOMED! I SAY!!






At least 129 killed, a theater and soccer game were targeted , a man caught in Brussels with lots of ordinance and connections to the Paris attacks. ISIS is making a robust claim on  the incidents. The French have called this an act of war.   Conceived , in earnest, in 1979 at the fall of the Shaw of Iran and the installation of  Ayatollah Khomeini  at the head of Irans present neo-theocratic government. Now the news is hot, fresh, and subject to change.

French Pres Hollende, says it is an act of war. Pres. ‘bama says “We bring those responsible to justice!” like it was a crime perped by regular criminals. Tin ear? Nothing between ears?

ISIS SAYS THIS IS WAR, Obama is dialing 911, Hollende is closing the borders. 77% of the ‘immigrants are young men! Feel the rumble? See the tremor in the wine glasses of Paris, London, Rome et. al. There is an army on the move. It comes from the crucible of Syria, (a Syrian passport found at  the stadium site) and other parts of the caldron of the middle east.

It percolated from Iranian revolution throughout the middle east, it’s bloom and blossom is the Caliphate ISIS. The present mass incursion of fighting-age Muslims into Europe signals the cultural death of Europe. Our oft times imbecilic but always cherished, cradle mates across the pond  are under a tidal wave of dependent DP’s (displaced persons) soon to be Welfare recipients of the host countries. As is always, (at least always has been)  the case the immigrants gather together in closed communities insulated to the culture at large. In various venues throughout Europe  these ghettos become No-Go zones for police. Sharia law is infiltrating as an auxiliary to the host judiciary of many European countries. These enclaves become dark zones that are like a dark smudge on a lung ex-ray. Bad news from the most violent religion since the Thugee’s prowled India, swilling sugar and strangling travelers.

Last summer Deb and I stood at the base of the coliseum, ( the big one, in Rome), the evening was warm and it was a long, slow, late-summer sunset. A light breeze seemed kind after the pounding heat of a late august afternoon. Of course there was the broken grandeur of the Colliseum. My eyes traced every line, crack, snag, of the ruin. And it was grand. I was filled with a sense of….. NOSTALGIA! 

My history was everywhere. I felt  familiarity in the gaze of  of each marble visage. I felt some kind of completion. I felt as if I just got home. It is disheartening to think that the whole of western history    will fall into the gentle hands of ISIS, pictured here, destroying  ancient antiquities at the Nimrud site in northern Iraq.


      I saw the handwriting on the wall for Greece in a hostel in Athens. It was a age worn place, a walk up with  primitive frescos of Zeus and his clan and a host of Greek deities and monsters from the Hellenic period festooned each landing of each floor. 

Leonidas the desk man, sported the blue black curls and swarthy good looks that found it’s deadliest reputation in late fifties with such films as “Three Coins in the Fountain” or “Boy on a Dolphin”. One day as I passed the time with him at his desk I mentioned his namesake, Leonidas, the Spartan King who fought the Persians at Thermopylae 480 B.C. He shook his head with a sad smile and said “Yeah, but they have invaded anyway.” He nodded toward the open door to the sidewalk outside…..

The beggars of Athens are very dramatic. They sit, both male and female in little piles on the sidewalk, imploring, loudly and long. With hand gesticulations!  (Imploring outstretched palms etc). There are deeeeep potholes on the sidewalks downtown. Racks of abandoned Vespa’s covered in cob webs and sitting unclaimed for years at a stretch. The despair of a depressed economy was expressed by the number of helpless and hapless on Athens streets. “”The migrants, Leonidas complained, “come here and the government pays them so much just to live. They do nothing… ”

Only a miracle can save Europe now. This concerns me…

Breaking hearts? How much pain. Thirteen of the killed were from the same village.





If the silent sense of hate doesn’t grip you by the end of this little stroll your already dead…

Obama skipped out on the world leaders March of Unity  in Paris this week. I will not belabor the issue with a condemnation of his obvious lack of concern about the terror attack that spawned the largest public demonstration since Paris was liberated (actually this demonstration was larger), by the allies in WWII.  Obama’s not there because to respond like there is a problem would be admitting that it was a problem important enough to respond to.  An anti-terrorist rally could send the message that we were at war with Islamic extremists. Obama cannot: validate the word terror, admit to anything like a war,  or use the word Islam in reference to anyone who wreaks havoc in any venue. In short, to attend would draw attention to a problem he is busily shunting to the side tracks.


Barack backed the Muslim Brotherhood in the election that Egypt took back.  Fate filled the spot with a man who is acting like a true and dynamic leader and champion of a unified Egypt.  I was shocked when I saw the following vid.. It is interesting to note that his audience is getting quite a hiding back o’ the woodshed.  Lots of downward gazes.

The content ofthis address is one the most important statements made by Muslim leader in recent history. He is presently hunting down and killing Obamas renegade replacement players, The Muslim Brotherhood.

Al Sissi is the first Egyptian president to visit a Coptic church since Nasser. If he lives he can be a pivotal man in history. Hmmmm interesting.
