Who killed Alberto Nisman?

Dear Editor:

Ms. O’Grady correctly casts doubt on the circumstances surrounding the death of Alberto Nisman,  the prosecutor in the investigation of the 1994 bombing of a Jewish Cultural Center in Buenos Aires killing 85 Jews. He identified  Iranian-sponsored Hezbollah suspects  and recently accused the Argentinian government of secretly  letting Iran off the hook with an oil and food deal.   Equally correct is her solution for learning the truth about Nisman’s death:  a. releasing his entire  legal complaint against President Kirchner; and b. appointing  and supporting  an independent prosecutor to investigate his death.

Her suspicions  are buttressed by the long history of  Iranian deception and extra-judicial  killings. In order to undermine  Ms. O’Grady’s reasonable suggestions,  President Kirchner need only look to Britain, a nation with a much longer history of murder and deceit.   Britain has covered up its murder of one of Her Majesty’s Subjects, a “meddlesome”  attorney named Patrick Finucane, by anointing a “respected” lawyer to review files in secret and publish a report which held no one accountable.  How could America or  Israel  complain about such a solution for President Kirchner?  Not a word is recorded from either objecting to the report on Finucane’s  murder.

Of course, it’s  easier  for  the U. S.  to accept this British ‘solution’ to the Nisman  murder.  The U. S. found no fault with Lord de Silva’s report  because the victim  was an innocent Irish Catholic.   When is the last time you ever heard of a complaint  about the killing  of  a Catholic  by our State Department  in general never mind an Irish one?   The  killing of 1000 Catholics in N. I. remain uninvestigated because our good  and dear friends in the British government, like Argentina with Iran, are  always bartering justice and truth away for better deals.

Sincerely,

State of the Union - 2015

The Plain Dealer, always denying they are Left, chose to print a piece today that is timed to support POTUS' State of the Union speech tonight. 1% of the word's population will soon have half of the world's wealth they said. Gee, doesn't that sound like we should all support his upcoming "Tax the Rich" scheme?

The seemingly hare-brained proposition will not fly with the new Congress of course. It is designed to set the stage for the Democrats in 2016.

What will be left unsaid is what the  "rich" do with their money. Do they have piles of it stacked to the ceiling like Scrooge McDuck? Do they invest it and employ people? Research and Development? Rainy day funding to pay possible exorbitant fines to the government? Fill in your own blanks.

In my own humble world I'm one of the middle-class. Translated to 2014 America that means both a have- not and a have...but definitely not one of the so-called 1%. I am fortunate to have been raised here and grateful to those who made perilous  journeys on sailing ships for a better life for themselves and their progeny. That's US...With the exception of those brought here against their will.

With those thoughts in mind, I won't be buying any of the nonsense that will be spewed tonight. One thing we won't hear from the Smiley Face tonight is how they will operate within a budget. No, they will tell us how right they are to seize more wealth from those who are guilty and give it to those who are not guilty.

Thanks for listening.

Observing communism, aka socialism, aka progreessivism

As a long-time observer of American and world politics, communism and their actors have been the story in my eye. Their organization is nothing short of supreme. It's why they have been successful overthrowing governments around the world and taking control of their peoples. The only way their political and economic model can work is if EVERY NATION is communist. Hence their ongoing efforts everywhere, especially in the U.S.

Their most recent activity here has been Ferguson, Missouri. They are quick to assemble their minions and show up at flash points. Why, when other Americans did not follow suit with their rioting, did they? Unfortunately, it is my belief that the kind of television that was produced in Ferguson fed the government-controlled media outlets here and overseas.. "See, look what it's like here/in America. You don't have that kind of behavior here in your (fill in the blanks) communist country. America is NOT what it's cracked up to be. Thousands upon thousands of people are oppressed and persecuted there. Just watch the news. Seeing is believing."

The tragedy in all this is the so-called journalism in our so-called free nation. The news is spun based on emotions, not facts. The result is pre-judgement of people and events. Unless American journalism returns to its roots we are doomed to another Dark Age.

Are we crazy? Welfare payments for doing NOTHING!


 

 OBSCENE SALARIES   

 THE WORK ETHIC WE INHERITED GROWING UP HAS FALLEN PREY TO THE 'WELFARE'
SYSTEM

The Cato Institute released an updated 2013 study (original study in 1955) showing that welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job in 33 states and the District of Columbia. Even worse, welfare pays more than $15 per hour in 13 states. According to the study, welfare benefits have increased faster than minimum wage. It’s now more
profitable to sit at home than it is to earn an honest day’s pay. 

Hawaii is the biggest offender, where welfare recipients earn $29.13 per hour, or a $60,590 yearly salary, all for doing nothing.

Here is the list of the states where the pre-tax equivalent “salary” that welfare recipients receive is higher than having a job:

1. Hawaii : $60,590
2. District of Columbia : $50,820
3. Massachusetts : $50,540
4. Connecticut : $44,370
5. New York : $43,700
6. New Jersey : $43,450
7. Rhode Island : $43,330
8. Vermont : $42,350
9. New Hampshire : $39,750
10. Maryland : $38,160
11. California : $37,160
12. Oregon : $34,300
13. Wyoming : $32,620
14. Nevada : $29,820
15. Minnesota : $29,350
16. Delaware : $29,220
17. Washington : $28,840
18. North Dakota : $28,830
19. Pennsylvania : $28,670
20. New Mexico : $27,900
21. Montana : $26,930
22. South Dakota : $26,610
23. Kansas : $26,490
24. Michigan : $26,430
25. Alaska : $26,400
26. Ohio : $26,200
27. North Carolina : $25,760
28. West Virginia : $24,900
29. Alabama : $23,310
30. Indiana : $22,900
31. Missouri : $22,800
32. Oklahoma : $22,480
33. Louisiana : $22,250
34. South Carolina : $21,910

As a point of reference the average Middle Class annual income today is $50,000, down from $54,000 at the beginning of the Great Recession.  Hawaii, DC, and Massachusetts pay more in welfare than the average working folks earn there. Is it any wonder that they stay home rather than look for a job. Time for a drastic change. America is virtually bankrupt.

Are we Nuts or what? How do we un-do this type of stupidity on the part of Americans?
This is crazy!

Salary of retired US Presidents $180,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of House/Senate....$174,000 FOR LIFE

This is stupid.
Salary of Speaker of the House ....$223,500 FOR LIFE!

This is really stupid.
Salary of Majority/Minority Leader $193,400 FOR LIFE!

Ditto last line.
Average Salary of a teacher .. $40,065
Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN .. $38,000

Think about this.
Nancy Pelosi will retire as a Congress Person at $174,000 Dollars a year for LIFE. She has retired
as SPEAKER at $223,500 a year. PLUS she will receive an additional $193,400 a year as Minority Leader. That's $803,700 Dollars a year for LIFE including FREE medical which is not available to us .... the taxpayers. She  is just one of the hundreds of Senators and Congress that float in and out every year!

HAMAS - anything to gain their ends, including allowing civilians to be killed.

Since these July, 2014 Hamas attacks on Israel, there have been many civilian deaths in Gaza. Hamas, like other Muslim terrorists, don't care about anything other than their political ends. If they have to fire into Israel from civilian areas to provoke Israeli firing back into the areas where Hamas is firing from, they will do so. They can now proclaim Israel is attacking civilians, schools, hospitals, et al.

Are we understanding this?

I note MM in America is portraying Israel as the bad guy here. This is to be expected as it fits the agenda of the current occupant of the White House and his minions.
