I don't have an axe to grind with Palestinians in "Palestine" (except there really isn't a 'Palestine'), nor do I have a problem with Syrians in Syria. I'm a bit annoyed with them when they're down the street at the mosque and they act as if I should give a rat's ass, which I don't. For the record, if a Palestinian virus struck them all dead today, we'd need to dig a bunch of slit trenches with back hoes to bury them and the fuel those machines exude allegedly create the weather/climate change, and naturally that would bother me if it rained on a day when I wanted to take my motorcycle out for a spin.
Does that make me intolerant? Absolutely. They flee the despotism of Islam and their filthy, violent homelands and come here, wanting to bring the same violence and despotism of faith. No thanks, go back home, strap a bomb to yourself and blow yourself up. If nobody buries your parts, the dogs will eat you and cycle you back to fertilizer. The liberals howl that Trump wants a moratorium on allowing more Muslims into America, until we can get a handle on it, but that's precisely why people vote for him. America is tired of losing -- and we've lost big under Barack and friends.
The Football metric - and Bernie Sanders
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made it official that he is considering entering this year’s presidential race as an independent. Early polling suggests a Bloomberg candidacy would be good for Donald Trump and bad for Hillary Clinton, provided that Clinton can stay out of prison. Most feel that President Obama would pardon her, but she'd be out of the running for the presidency this time around...She'd be 76 in eight years, pardoned from all crime by Barack, and ready to hit the campaign trail with Humma again.
Race Baiter, Al Sharpton, is feeling the Bern
Bernie sucks up to Sharpton in the hopes of getting a few
black votes in key states.
It's worth it for Sharpton to throw whatever support those narrow shoulders are capable of moving to Bernie Sanders in the off chance that he will become president. Obama has shielded Sharpton from prison for tax evasion, arson and a long list of other crimes. Yes, Sharpton will tap dance before the 74 year old senile communist if he can stay free and can feast on the scraps from Bernie's table.
Sanders has not been quite as popular with black people as Hillary, who had declared herself "part black" if she can get their vote. Given that Sanders' campaign swings on the concept of handing out free stuff to all, he should be popular in the ghetto, doubling down on free ObamaPhones, cheese and food stamps that can be easily swapped for illegal narcotics. It's worth noting that part of Sanders' campaign has also been a promise to release black felons from prison until the population ratio with whites has been reached and is in balance. That may work in Sharpton's favor too if Bernie forgets his promise to pardon Al.

Welcome to Virtual Mirage
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad, you're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad," asked Alice?
"You must be," said the cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
Virtual Mirage - What's on the other side of the mirror? Ask Alice how deep the rabbit hole really goes.
This blog is an extension of MY JOURNEY because sometimes my journey needs more explanation, and sometimes there is more to be said than can be expressed on one ordinary blog.
Sometimes it's politics (very serious), sometimes I address the human condition with a dose of humor, and other times it may seem as if the track is headed in a unique direction. I can be a complicated guy at times.
There are a few things you'll find I consider:
* Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
* Sometimes the questions are complex but the answers are simple.
* Love is the only condition where the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
* Steers do not sign treaties with meat packers. (think on that)
* Taxes are NEVER levied for the benefit of the taxed.
* The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no victory possible in defense.
WHITE POWDER (Novel)
There is something intoxicating about a secret.
THE OLD WHORE (NOVEL)
In the peculiar culture of the Central Intelligence Agency, "old whores" are people who will do whatever it takes to get the job done, irrespective of the cost.
EXILES FROM EDEN (NOVEL)
Sparks fly as two star-crossed lovers meet. He runs toward trouble as she yearns for something missing. And it ends in a flight from and toward justice.
Today, I balance work and play as much as anyone can. All things remaining equal, play is more important. Life is short - it's important to make every day count for something, if only to yourself.
I'm a former tinker/tailor/soldier/sailor who has now decided that maybe it really wasn't all done for nothing.
