Why ISIS Is Different

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Today a friend expressed her surprise at my hard-ass line against ISIS. Most people know that  I have been a vehement, anti stupid-war protestor against the Vietnam, Iraqi, and Afghan wars for many years. I have never been in favor of America being “the freedom police’ of the world knowing that the real cause of these wars is economic. 

Our elected politicians really care much more about massive campaign contributions from companies like Boeing and Lockheed than the individual rights of Asians and Arabs.  But war against ISIS is different. Why?

Extreme, radical fundamentalist Muslims are fanatics who do not have ties to our human, rational, civilized world. They listen to voices in the sky and live by rules from thousands of years ago. “Death to infidels” is not a quick religious saying like “love thy neighbor.” It’s an inflexible command by which they live and die. Murdering innocents to these animals is a duty not a choice.

People forget that the world’s 1.6-billion Muslims are the main targets of ISIS because they are not “holy” enough. And then there are Christians, Jews, Buddists, and the rest of us who try to live decent, human lives. This world – and how we live in it – is important to us. It means nothing to insane, religious fanatics who behead children and take pride in their viciousness.

America knocked out the dictatorships of Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan.  As disgusting as these leaders were, they kept the lid on the vermin named ISIS. America and the west opened that lid with lying promises – and now we must exterminate the creatures which crawled out.

The ‘National Enquirer’ of Politics

There may be as many right-wingnut wacko sites as left-wingnut wacko ones, but ‘Raw Story’ is tilted so far to the left, it may fall off the face of the earth (a cause for celebration.)  Juvenile, biased beyond belief, and sensationalized with oddball incidents used to make generalized, pondourus points, “Raw” wins the ‘We’re All  Racist – All The Time’ OMG Award.

Unfortunately it dominates FACEBOOK where little minds don’t necessarily want to know, they want to know what’s the cool political line du jour.  Unfortunately these young, brainwashed votes count just as much as yours.

What A Mugshot!

Daily News: “Top model Roosmarijn de Kok has been charged with shoplifting fish oil and three chocolate bars from Whole Foods in Tribeca, the Daily News has learned. The 19-year-old Dutch stunner, who donned the cover of Vogue in Thailand and who is signed with Wilhelmina Models, was in Manhattan Criminal Court on Monday to answer charges.

She wore a black lacy leg-bearing dress and pumps as she sheepishly stood before a judge.

De Kok — who nervously hugged her leather jacket — had to be told to stand properly before things got rolling.

“Before we proceed, please tell your client to unfold her arms,” Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Denise Dominguez said to her lawyer Sal Strazzullo, who is known for handling high-profile fashion and nightlife clients.

De Kok is charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth-degree for the alleged shoplifting at the 270 Greenwich St. location about 3:20 p.m. on July 18. She was given a desk appearance ticket with Monday as the return date.”
