Give North Korea What It Wants

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

WHAT!?! You commie-loving red bastard!

(I can just hear the venom spewing already … )

Before you get ready to hang me, let me ask a simple question:

Do you know what North Korea wants?

Why does it obnoxiously shoot off nuclear tests and says the US will be the eventual target?  I did some research behind the headlines and wasn’t too surprised at what I learned.

North Korea wants Washington to hold direct talks with its government for two reasons: They want us to stop trying to topple their current regime with economic sanctions. And they want us to sign a final peace agreement since our countries have technically been at war since 1953 – 60-years ago.

Basically they want to establish diplomatic relations with us.  We REF– USE to even talk with them. Why?

Because many of the top people in our government are 1950’s, anti-commie cold warriors.  Their minds still live in an age when communism was a threat to our country. Communism is a freedom and economic DISASTER today but (sorry) it’s not OUR disaster.  We’ve gone broke partially because we try to set up little Americas in places we don’t understand.

Our old, cold-war hawks could not even spell ‘noninterventionist’ – much less practice it.  Even if its in America’s best interest.

The Unkindest Cut Of All

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

The first time I saw an uncircumcised penis was on the cover of John and Yoko’s album “Two Virgins”. I thought John had forgotten to take off his condom.  In the 1950’s, almost all kids in America got circumcised – especially the boys. All the guys on my block got one as soon as they were born and some of them couldn’t walk for a year!

People against circumcision have changed America’s minds. Today, only one in three baby boys is circumcised.  One of the most militant groups opposed is “Mothers Against Circumcision.” “Intact America” is another. They believe the operation is only supported by medical myths, religious traditions, is extremely painful, and a violation of human rights (Yikes!).

I’ve read the pros and cons about circumcision and I decided it’s not right for me.  Unfortunately, my parents made the opposite decision years ago and there’s no going back on it.  There are also no accepted medical procedures to reattach foreskins – even if you could find one in the right size and color.
