A Pot-head's trip to Lilliput

A while back I came across a post  concerning an interview Obama gave to "60 Minutes". In the interview Obama is seen giggling and laughing and is called on it by the reporter, to which he replies "well you need a little gallows humor" or something to that effect. Glad he mentioned hanging and not some conservative---now that would have created something of a fire-storm. The article mentioned that Barack looked and acted like he was high---the giggles, laughs, etc. Guess the truth will never be known---his actions did raise some eye-brows, however.

Anyway after reading the post and viewing the "60 Minutes" video, I got to thinking about by days some years ago and my frequent visits with Maryjane (marijuana). Often I would come in after a long hard day at the office change clothes and go to my friends house. There Tim, my friend, and I would relax and fire-up the old bong and enjoy the sultry Florida evening. During those long (and they were long) evenings we would discuss and solve most of the world's problems. However, I did notice the next day that all the solutions had slipped away and could not to be retrieved until our next visit to Maryjanes place. During the trips Tim and I saw some things differently--I would focus on the small (like looking at the details of the bark on a tree), while my friend would focus on the large (the whole forest and beyond). I was looking to the infinity of the small and he the infinity of the large. He often said, "where the big meets the small there you would find the answer to it all." Tim is gone now, died at the young age of 44. I miss my friend. Enough of the reminiscing, back to that post on Obama.

While reading that thought provoking post I was reminded of Jonathan Swift's, Gulliver's Travels. And the 4 stories in his satire. The first being the best known of his visit to the land of the Lilliputians---the examination of the small and seemingly petty things in life. And next the visit to the land of the giants (the Brobdingnagian's)---there Swift was holding a magnifying glass up to the world and pointing out the imperfections. And finally, the land of the horses (the Houyhnhnm's)---there Gulliver saw the perfection in nature, a Utopia. So as I read that post I was wondering what Obama was thinking of, if indeed, he was in a cloud of smoke--the Lilliputians, the Brobdingnagian's, or the Houyhnhnm's. Suddenly, the reality hit me---of course it was the Houyhnhnm's! There he would have found his vision of a "Socialist Utopia." The perfect world which all liberals dream of and wish to impose on us all for our own good. Or maybe he sees something more ominous---a land where he is Gulliver and we, well we are the Lilliputians.

Black Reparations supported by White Conservative

Just yesterday presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced her "white guilt" for having been been the recipient of benefits resulting from her "white privilege".  This of course, added fuel to the "Black Reparations" movement sweeping the nation.  Now one white conservative member of the Mississippi State Legislature who wishes to remain anonymous has come out in support of paying Blacks reparations for past grievances they suffered at the hands of privileged white people. However, this anonymous leader did put some stipulations on his payment plan.  First this bold conservative, would give each black family in America the sum of $1,000,000.  However, he would deduct from that the cost of food stamps given to those families for the last 20 years, also he would calculate the estimated cost of free medical services used by that family and deduct that from the million dollar settlement,  additionally for those families who are in low rent public housing he would subtract the estimated cost of that from their generous reparation payment.  This unidentified conservative who is obviously suffering from "white guilt" has calculated that after all the debits and credits are figured in, the average Black family would owe less that $90,000 to local, state and federal governments.  Representative "X", as we shall call him, claims this should put to rest forever the question of Black Reparations!

Prelude to World War Three

The below is a fictional account of a conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran.  A conflict that would quickly engulf the entire Middle East leading to a clash between the world's major powers.  As we all know the Middle East is a powder keg with a short fuse.  A short fuse that could easily be ignited by the slightest miscalculation.  A miscalculation that could lead to unintended consequences on a grand scale leaving the world powerless to control the onrushing events.   

Day 1   Reuters News Agency is reporting that 3 Iranian missiles have hit the massive Saudi Aramco Oil Refinery near Riyadh.   Reuters is further reporting that the Iranian "Shahab" missiles were launched from the base near Tabriz. The White House has just broken it's silence on the unfolding events in the Middle East, saying the two sides should explore all avenues for a peaceful solution!
 

Day 1 +4 hours   A flight of some 22 Saudi F-15's flying out of Prince Sultan Air Base some 60 miles south of Riyadh has attacked the Iranian Naval Base at Bandar Abbas in the Straits of Hormus.         
 

Day 2   Iranian Quds Forces move toward Iraqi-Kuwaiti Border.  Obama orders evacuation of American bases in Kuwait, including army  bases at Arifjan and Doha as well as the Air Base at Ali al Salem.  The White House claims the closure of these bases was already in the works and these installations were not essential to American security.
 

Day 3    Elements of the Kuwaiti Army have engaged forward deployed members of the Iranian Quds force as they crossed that country's border from Iraq.
 

Day 4    In a brief Oval Office address, President Obama sought to reassure the nation that the expanding conflict in the Middle East was under control and his team at the United Nations was having constructive dialogues with those evolved.  Meanwhile the cost of crude oil as jumped from $35 per barrel to an all time high of $400 driving gasoline prices to an astounding $8 per gallon in many locations.
 

Day 5    Iranian troops continue to push south into Saudi Arabia, while at the same time Kuwait City has fallen to the Islamic Republic.  Reports are coming in that in the past few hours numerous Iranian missiles have fallen on the Saudi capital of Riyadh.. Reuters news service in now reporting that some 20 planes from the RSAF (Royal Saudi Air Force) have been shot down by advanced Russian surface-to-air missiles as they attacked nuclear sites at Arak and Bushehr.  This just in from Sky News in Jerusalem: Missiles are now raining down on northern Israel.  These attacks are believed coming from Hezbollah forces in Lebanon and Syria.
 

Day 6   The Israeli government has announced that should these attacks by Hezbollah and Hamas continue on it's citizens, that not only will those two terrorist groups be targeted; but those states supporting the proxy war against the Jewish State will feel the wrath of Israel.  Following that official announcement it is being reported that top Israeli members of the of the Knesset as well as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have been relocated to a secret site, believed to be somewhere in the Negev Desert. If true, this is an ominous development.
 

Day 7    The AP in now reporting that Israel has launched an undisclosed number of Jericho III missiles at targets in the Islamic State following the successful downing of incoming Iranian missiles by Israel's "David's Sling" anti-ballistic missile system.             
 

Day 8     The Kremlin has just announced that Russian military advisers helping to maintain an Iranian SAM battery, were killed when Israeli F-15's attacked that site.  The Russian spokesman added that should these attacks continue Israel would suffer grave consequences.
 

Day 9     A war of words has erupted between Tel Aviv and the Kremlin with both sides claiming the other was in violation of international war.  Meanwhile the Obama administration is not taking sides and has assumed a neutral position as the Russian Black Sea Fleet moves into the Mediterranean.  Just breaking, the Russian Missile Cruiser Moskva has just shot down 2 Israeli F-15 fighters flying over Israeli airspace using their long range S-300F SAM's.
 

Day 10   The world is waiting for the reaction of Israel for the unprovoked attack by the Moskva, while at the same time Iranian forces continue their advances on the Arabian Peninsular and Hezbollah rockets are stilll falling on northern Israel.  Just breaking---Reports are coming in that witnesses reported seeing what appears to be a nuclear explosion some 30 miles off the Israeli coast.  Various news agencies around the globe are now reporting that all contact has been lost with their offices in Tel Aviv.
 

Day 11    Thousands of miles to the south a lone Bushman walking across the vast Kalahari Desert notices a strange small light moving across the night time sky in a northwesterly direction.  He this is just some white man's toy finding it's was through the millions of twinkling lights in the cosmos. What is almost beyond his comprehension is that this tiny light streaking toward some unknown destination was born some 100 miles east of South Africa some 200 feet below the surface of the Indian Ocean.  And that the birth mother was a Russian Typhoon Class Ballistic Missile Submarine.  This child of modern man was destined to shine it's final burst of blinding light on the city of Washington, Jefferson and of course Barack Obama.   The president awoke in a cold sweat realizing this all was only a dream.  He turned over and went back to sleep.  At that same moment some 4,500 hundred miles to the East an Iranian general pushes that small red button that will send 3 Shahab missiles streaking toward the Saudi Aramco Refinery near Riyadh.  Obama's dream was over, but the nightmare was only beginning!   .

Planet of the Black Man

In the last year of Hillary Clinton's second term turmoil is erupting across the nation particularly on college campuses and in the sprawling urban ghettos.  Ghettos, that have grown under Democrat leadership.  President Hillary Clinton sought to stem the unrest sweeping the nation by appointing a leader of the BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement to the Supreme Court.  

Not to be interrupted by the violence clashes spreading from coast to coast NASA is preparing to launch it's first manned mission to Mars.  A mission intended to last for 4 years.  BLM protesters are objecting to the launch because the 5 man crew is all white.  Despite the protest Mars Mission One departs Cape Kennedy on schedule.  

Some 18 months later Mars 1, lands on the Red Planet to begin a two year study, in hope of finding an answer to that eternal question "is there life out there"!   Shortly after landing,  Mars 1 loses communication with Earth.  Despite this setback, the Commander of Mars 1 decides to complete the mission hoping this problem can be solved.  

Some four years  later the crew of Mars 1 touches down at their alternate landing site at Edwards Air Force Base in California.  The crew is ecstatic having had no contact with Earth for almost three years.  Upon leaving their craft, they were surprised not by cheering crowds,  but by heavily armed Black Soldiers who promptly placed the 5 under arrest.  Shocked the five white men protested, and demanded to know why they were being treated like criminals.

What the returning astronauts did not know, was just a few months before the government of the United States was overthrown by the BLM movement and that all White Men had been relocated to vast internment camps in the interior.  In disbelief, the 5 were brought before a black magistrate and promptly found to be guilty of the unspeakable act of using their "white privilege" for advancement.  

The world had gone berserk and soon would become the Planet of the Black Man!

THIS OF COURSE IN POLITICAL SATIRE AND FULLY INTENDED TO POKE FUN AT THE MADNESS OF THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT.  A MOVEMENT THAT IS JUST AS RACIST AS THE OLD KKK!  IN FACT, THEY ARE MIRROR IMAGES!  JUST TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN!
