An IPO for War!...Liars & Crooks

This is going to be for me a tough piece to write. There is no anti anything in it, only the thinking. It would be nice if I had my old football teammate, Howie here to stand beside me. I hope Lenny from Queens and my army buddy from Brooklyn will understand. They have two things in common with me. They are all my friends and they are all Jewish. Not to mention my favorite comedian, Rodney Dangerfield, may he rest in peace. When I think about it, I only know a few Muslims, notably Marwan in San Francisco who is a great guy. Nevertheless, my bonds are with the people I know and therefore, I stand for Israel as a free state. That being said, I am deeply disturbed by what I have been reading lately, and what the media is talking about.
Nuclear Iran
The debate is over trust. Can we trust Iran which is building a nuclear plant which they say is for domestic use like electrical power. Israel says they are seeking to make a bomb. I can understand their fear when you consider the rhetoric coming out of Iran that calls for the destruction of Israel. Israel wants to strike Iran to destroy the plant, but this act could start a war. The US response is we are watching Iran very closely, however this is not the time to act. Both governments seem to be debating the date of the response as if it were an IPO stock offering. Also, and with much skepticism, Iran nuclear scientist have been dying lately. Is assassinations being conducted? This is how real serious wars are started.
Unintended Consequences
What if they are both wrong? Intelligence? Ha! Like President Bush with Iraq WMD? The thinking should be this. Just warn Iran, but tell Iran what the consequences will be if they are lying. No country has a right to tell another sovereignty what to do and using death threats, big bully actions won't get it. Have these war mongers ever read Sun-tzu? In his book, THE ART of WAR, he states,"the supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."
For Every Action There Is A Reaction
If Iran is lying all along, at least we will know the truth. Then, we declare war on them and we destroy their plant and any other suspisions that we may have doubts about. Act with justification, but allow peace a chance!
Liars and Crooks: This week it is dedicated to Congress and the President. I want to thank the Global Guru for this unique way of looking at the budget. Simplified!
Consider our budget: US tax revenues: $2,170,000,000,000.
                                  Federal budget:    $3,820,000,000,000.
                                   New debt:           $1,650,000,000,000.
                                 National debt:       $14,271,000,000,000.
                  and new budget cuts  :         $38,500,000,000.
Now, remove 8 zeros and pretend it is your family household budget.
                               Family income: $21,700.
                              family spending:$38,200.
                  new debt on credit card: $16,500.
          new outstanding family debt: $142,715.
Bottom line: total budget cuts for our government if it were applied to our family budget, it would amount to:  $385.00  See the BS! We need a new political party that is for the people and not one from the 1%, by the 1% and for the 1%. Vote the Liberty Party.
