The U.S. Is Israel’s Bitch

The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, recently stated that the Iran nuclear deal makes the world more dangerous and that Israel is not bound by it.  The arrogance shown by Netanyahu is amazing.  He seems oblivious to the fact that a growing majority of Americans in both the Democratic Party and the coalition of independents view Israel in a negative light and do not approve of America’s relationship with Israel.

U.S. hypocrisy in dealing with Israel is beyond amazing.  It is known throughout the world that Israel has nuclear weapons and Israel has more than just a few for self-defense.  The U.S. asked Israel not to develop nuclear weapons many years ago.  Not only did Israel develop nuclear weapons, but the U.S. media never mentions that Israel has nuclear weapons.

The electronic media in the U.S. continually terrorize Americans by stating that Iran may someday obtain a nuclear weapon.  Yet the media, on both the left and the right, fail to mention that Israel is a nuclear armed state and is not recognized as a nuclear weapons state by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty !  This Orwellian doublespeak is an open invitation to Israel to use their nuclear weapons against other countries ! Also this Orwellian doublespeak is a clear statement that International Laws that apply to other countries do not apply to Israel !

Also, Americans in all political parties are opposed to giving American tax dollars to foreign countries in the form of foreign aid or in any other form.  Since it was founded in 1948, Israel has become the largest recipient of U.S. foreign assistance.  Israel has received a known total of 121 Billion dollars taken from American taxpayers.  In 2007, the Bush Administration established a 10 year, 30 Billion Israeli aid package for fiscal years 2009 through 2018.  The Obama Administration allocated for FY2014 a sum of $3.1 Billion.  Could these vast sums of American tax dollars been used here in the U.S. to help Americans?

Starting with George W. Bush (43) and continuing under President Obama, the U.S. has effectively ceased to be a country of laws.  The U.S. Government enforces the laws it likes and ignores laws that it does not like.  America’s failure to support the U.S. Constitution and to enforce Federal Laws is the reason that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. NSA joined in an illegal alliance with Israel to develop the Stuxnet computer worm-virus.  This was a clear act of War by an illegal coalition and violated the U.S. Constitution and U.S. Federal Laws.

Americans might be inclined to believe that Israel would be grateful to our country.  Unfortunately, Israel on June 8, 1967, attacked an American ship in international waters.  Israel murdered 34 Americans and injured 171 others.  Since the ship, the USS LIBERTY, was flying an American flag and since Israel overflew the ship for hours before the attack, no sane or sensible individual can believe the foolish claim by Israel that this was a mistake.

As an American, I believe that Iran will continue to work to develop nuclear weapons just like Israel.  However, this treaty will make it more difficult for Iran to work on nuclear weapons.  Since Netanyahu does not like this deal, I believe that the U.S. should cease all aid to Israel.  If we do not, America will continue to be Israel’s bitch and  continually violate the U.S. Constitution and American Law while Israel continues its ongoing genocide against the Islamic religion and against all non-Jewish cultures and countries in the Middle East.

A Wise Saying – Part 120

” Man’s capacity for justice makes democracy possible;  but man’s inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary. ”       Reinhold Niebuhr

Ndamukong Suh, The NFL, and The Miami Dolphins

Ndamukong Suh was born on January 6, 1987, stands 6 feet 4 inches in height, and weighs 310 pounds.  He was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the 2010 draft.  Now he is a player for the Miami Dolphins.

Mr. Suh signed a six year deal with the Dolphins worth more than $ 114 Million.  As a longstanding fan of the Dolphins, I believe that he could help the Dolphins reach the playoffs in 2015.

I have often wondered how this athlete can display such strength against opposing linemen as he powers his way toward the opposing quarterback.  I believe that he can help the Dolphins achieve greatness in 2015.

I was shocked when I received an intercept from Jason Aborigine, the founder of Waterleaks.  Mr. Aborigine often intercepts NSA transmissions by using a series of RC circuits that increase the impedance and magnify the resonant frequency of a microburst signal through multiple stepdown transformers which boost a multiphasic shift by 600 Picofarads through multiple polarized capacitors !

Using this advanced design, Mr. Aborigine intercepted a National Security Agency signal that proved to be a conversation between Dr. Hiroshi Adachi and Dr. Wilhelm Von Goring.  Both Dr. Adachi and Dr. Von Goring are senior residents at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin, Germany.

Genetic engineering is the direct manipulation of an organisms genome using biotechnology.  The scientific community throughout the world has banned the modification of the human genome.

However, NSA intercept NSA-276084-FRV-02 definitely proves that Dr. Adachi and Dr. Von Goring did indeed modify the DNA of a human egg cell by substituting the DNA from a lowland Gorilla species found in West Africa.  Gorilla DNA is similar to human DNA.

Also, the doctors then fertilized the egg cell with human sperm.  The modified zygote was then transplanted into a woman on March 11, 1986.  The transplanted zygote grew normally.  A normal birth took place on January 6, 1987.  The newborn was named Ndamukong Suh.

Ndamukong Suh is the first genetically modified human to play football for the NFL ! Drs. Adachi and Von Goring have stated privately that they will perform this remarkable feat for a sum of $ 2 Million each.  The doctors are quick to point out that their fee is quite reasonable when the salary of Mr. Suh at $ 114 Million is considered.

Sanityandsense.com has learned that five other professional teams are seeking to draft genetically modified humans like Ndamukong Suh.

City Manager Selection For DeBary – 2015

On July 10, 2015, I went to the DeBary City Hall and paid 15 cents plus tax per page to obtain photocopies of the five candidates applying for the important position of city manager.  During the evening of July 10, 2015, I spent about two hours reading and studying the five resumes.

During the afternoon and evening of July 11, 2015, I spoke with three of the candidates by phone.  I had three very enjoyable conversations.  I did emphasize that I was a former city councilman and that I had no vote in the final selection process and I was only calling as a DeBary resident interested in open, honest, and clean local government.

Of the five final candidates, I found four candidates who had the necessary qualifications that I sought in 2009 when I was on the DeBary Council.  The following, listed in alphabetical order, appear to have the necessary qualifications.  They are: 1) Mr. Lyndon Bonner of Flagler Beach, Florida, QUALIFIED ; 2) Mr. Michael Czymbor of Fernandia Beach, Florida, QUALIFIED; 3) Mr. Robert Francis, Jr. of Hood River, Oregon, QUALIFIED ; and 4) Mr. Mark Kutney of Wellington, Florida, QUALIFIED.

I did not perform the much more difficult task of rating the four qualified candidates on a scale from 0 to 100 like I did when I was on the council.  This is not my job, but it is the job of the five presently elected council members.  As a DeBary resident, I expect each council member to talk in depth and even meet separately with each of the five candidates.  I expect each council member to cast a fully informed vote, based on their own in depth analysis when the vote is called.  There is no area of greater importance than the selection of a new city manager.

Hiring A City Manager – 2015

I have been busy working on health care issues within my family and consequently I did not have time to study and analyze any political issues on the local level.  Today, June 10, 2015, I took time to drive down to the DeBary City Hall and obtain copies of the resumes for the five finalists who are being considered for the position of City Manager.

As a supporter of open, honest, and clean government at all levels of our government, the following is a list of six things that I believe to be true especially for city governments.  They are:  1) It is totally unethical, but not illegal, for a city council to hire a city manager and then negotiate his/her salary.  Hiring the manager and then entering into a salary negotiation always results in an excessive salary for the new manager.  This is extremely unfair to the taxpayers of a city.  An ethical council, with a modicum of common sense, would set a top salary level for a manager and then begin the city manager search and selection process.

2)  The League of Cities is an organization that has been around for a long time and it is a perfectly legal organization.  However, The League does not call itself a labor union for city employees.  Yet it is common knowledge that The League seriously promotes higher and higher pay for city employees and this is especially true for city managers.  The only way any city can keep paying higher and higher salaries to city employees is to continue to increase city taxes to higher and higher levels. ( Editor’s Note: I am not opposed in any way to fair and just salary increases for city employees from year to year.  If the federal inflation rate was say 2.5%, I would consider a 2.5% or a 3% salary increase fair and just.  If the federal inflation rate was again 2.5%, I would consider a 12% salary increase to be excessive. )

3) The DeBary Council received a large number of resumes for the position of city manager.  An individual affiliated with, or a past member of The League of Cities, examined the resumes and decided which ones should go to the final selection process. I believe that an ethical city council would ask all members of the council to examine and read all of the resumes and then bring their top five selections to a public meeting at which time the council would select their top five choices.  That is how we did it in 2009, when I was a member of the city council.  It was an example of open, clean, and honest government.

4) Each elected official has a different degree of honesty and integrity.  Council members with a high level of integrity will work relentlessly to select a city manager with a high level of integrity who will work for the good of all the citizens.  Council members with little  integrity will work relentlessly to select a city manager with a low level of integrity who will support the Machiavellian self interests of unethical council members.

5) Humans display both noble and ignoble traits.  Council members who lack integrity will ” cut deals” with perspective city manager candidates before  the selection process begins.  Council members who really want to work for the People are often at a disadvantage since they follow the rules and display integrity.

6) Clean, open, and honest city government can not exist without a city manager who displays integrity.

Empress Wu Zetian and Hillary Clinton

The Tang Dynasty ( 618-906 AD ) was a time of relative freedom for women in China.  Women’s feet were not bound and some women found their way into politics.  Wu Zetian was a woman born into a noble family who was taught music, writing, and Chinese classical literature.

While avoiding the political infighting details, it is an historical fact that Wu ascended to the Dragon Throne and ruled China from 683-705 AD.  Empress Wu did not rule so much with an iron fist as a sensual body.  The Empress is often referred to as Empress Wu Hu.

Empress Wu passed a special law concerning oral sex. She felt that a woman pleasuring a man represented the concept of supremacy of males over females.  Therefore, she insisted that all visiting male dignitaries show their respect by pleasuring her orally when meeting !  The Empress would be nude under a robe.  The Empress would open her robe and her male guest would kneel before her and apply his lips and tongue to her Imperial pleasure palace between her legs.

George Santayana stated: ” Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. ”  Americans remember that President Bill Clinton received fellatio from Monica Lewinsky.  President Clinton said:  ” I did not have sex with that woman. ”  However, it turned out that he did.  ( For more information, readers are encouraged to type  the name of Bill Clinton into the search box at the top of this website.  You probably will enjoy reading an article titled: ” President Bill Clinton’s Penis and Monica Lewinsky’s Vagina. ” The article was published on June 8, 2011. )

Americans must remember that President Bill Clinton is married to Hillary Clinton.  Also, Hillary is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President.  Is it possible that Hillary may hold views like Empress Wu ? If fellatio was acceptable for President Bill Clinton, doesn’t it seem likely that Hillary may decide that cunnilingus is just the thing to prove women equal to men ?

If President Hillary Clinton follows the dictates of Empress Wu, can you imagine how this may effect diplomats from foreign countries ?  Sanityandsense.com called French Ambassador Pierre Bourdien and requested his thoughts.  Mr. Bourdien stated:  ” Obviously the Government of France will be at a decided advantage over all other countries since most women know that French men have completely mastered the art of cunnilingus. ”

German Ambassador Wolfgang Schmidt stated:  ” With Angela Merkel as Chief of state, the men of Germany are ready to fulfill their duty to the Fatherland. ”

Syrian Ambassador Abdul al-Hassani stated:  ” The diplomats from our country will be greatly relieved to learn that our country has no desire to re-establish diplomatic relations with the U.S. ”

7 Billion 321 Million People : 7,321,472,368

In June of 2015, the population of the world will be 7,321,472,368.  Also, there are twelve countries in the world whose population will exceed one-hundred million in June of 2015.  China and India have populations that exceed one Billion.  The following is the list of the twelve most populous countries in the world.  They are: 1) China = 1,401,635,962 ;  2) India = 1,282,074,334 ;  3) United States = 325,007,411 ;  4) Indonesia = 255,643,912 ;  5) Brazil = 203,634,861 ;  6) Pakistan = 188,091,410 ;  7) Nigeria = 183,301,850 ;  8) Bangladesh = 160,356,177 ;  9) Russia = 142,120,759 ;  10) Japan = 126,863,368 ;  11) Mexico = 125,209,080 ;  12)  Philippines = 101,741,682.

At 8,000 B.C., the world population was about 5 million.  Over the 8,000 year period until 1 A.D., the world population grew to only 250 million.

It took all of human history to the year 1800 for the world population to reach one billion.  The second billion in growth was achieved in the next 130 years.  The third billion in growth was achieved in only 30 years.  The fourth billion in growth was achieved in just 15 years.  The fifth billion in growth was achieved in just 13 years !

During the 20th. Century alone, the population of the world grew from 1.65 billion to 6.0 billion !

With the above facts in mind, I would like to evaluate two areas of concern that are of great interest to many people.  They are: 1) Global Warming and 2) World Population Growth.  I will use a scale from 0% to 100% where 0% represents no threat to human population survival and 100% represents an absolute threat to human survival.  I rate global warming  at 10% on my scale, meaning that I believe that it is almost no threat to human survival.  I rate world population growth at 92% on my scale, meaning that I believe that it is a major threat to human survival.
