Double Standards

Miracle Village is a sugar cane country, south Florida. It lies deep in a sea of green, bordering home to over 100 registered sex offenders who were found guilty, and have usually served a prison sentence, for a sex crime. Three percent of these people once were in positions of power: pastor, teacher, sports coach. A number of these sex offenders were convicted because they had sex with underage g...

Collective poetry of Persia

Most people, literate or illiterate, in Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan, the remnants of the ruined Persian Empire, still, 2013, keep, at least, three books in their homes: Rubaiyat-e Khayyam, Hafiz and Shahnameh. A well-known Iranian scholar, Mohammad Abdolvahab Qazvini, 1877-1949, after completing his traditional theological schooling, Arabic grammar and Islamic teachings, in 1904, at the...

Orgasmic loud shriek

The traffic down the so-called expressway was clogged. It lasted several minutes before got moving. When my car reached the congested spot, I saw a very conspicuous Porsche Panamera with a piece of worn-out-torn-out jacket stuck under the left front wheel. A few yards behind the car, there lay a corps, covered with dried-up streaks of blood. Skin color, due to loss of blood and time of death, in t...

People get what they deserve

Have you ever heard of a hybrid political system composed of one or more technically opposites? Take, for instance, the United Kingdom which is comprised of four nations: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland is a devolved government. In other word, it is being granted a home rule. First, the overall ruler was called the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, the British monar...

Oh! Calcutta

Farce, by definition, is a standard theatrical comedy. Sadly enough, some criminal agents, for more than three decades, have devised a sickening strain of farce which boggles the mind. This 21st century strain combines the rough boisterous comedy with human suffering in a disgusting manner. In farce, everything is exaggerated, including the plot which twists a lot, thus sending the spectators'...

Hidden Agenda

History is written by the victors."- Winston Churchill. "History is a set of lies agreed upon."- Napoleon Bonaparte. In the history of Arabian Peninsula, 450-621 A. D., we find three brothers in Mecca called: Hashim, Motalib and Abdoshams. Hashim and Abdoshams were conjoined twins! Ironically, there was a feud between these two brothers which has continued to present time. It began with Hashim'...

Sr. Presidente Chavez

Dear RIP Hugo Chaviz I do miss you a lot! Good old days! You, in your jumpsuit, standing on the platform, vigorously shouting, threatening, cursing. Mr. Presidente, 'si no te importa' I've got some questions for you. Remember your 'discurso', speech, at World Water, 2011? You said, "I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe c...

The Art of Deception

Life is nothing but a big soap opera, with an intricate plot and endless conflicts, played by animals on a stage called earth. Many wise men have tried to discover the theme of this drama in vain. When animal actors, excluding man, are watched, their existence seems a bit logical and straightforward, but this does not apply to its main cast of Homo sapiens. This farce play is a concoction of...

The Spinning Top

We are familiar with the big bang theory, cosmological model depicting the expansion of the universe: from a hot state into present status. The big bang theory can tell us what has happened ever since that time, but it cannot explain the initial condition of, say empty universe, prior to the bang. Neither can I. Nevertheless, my theory is very straight forward. It is based on spinning tops that...

Ridiculum ironia

Irony, a figure of speech, suggests a complex experience. There are three kinds of irony, of which one is called dramatic irony. In this figure of speech, the discrepancy exists between what a character wrongly says or believes and what the reader knows to be true. Unofficially, there is a sub-irony to the dramatic irony. Actually, I have no name for it except 'ridiculum ironia'. To explain it...

Audaciously Coward

How, overnight, I became a multi-millionaire is not a kid's story! My regular exercise begins at dawn, of course, indoors; otherwise, plainclothes men might take me in as a suspect! Normally, I open the gate to look for unusual things such as a stranger's car parked right in the driveway, etc. On the morning of that very day, to my great surprise, I saw a black carry-on bag neatly and visibly...

What views to express?

An Australian nurse, working in palliative care, claims to have recorded the dying epiphanies (feelings) of her patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. She believes that people gain a plausible clarity of vision when dying. She says, "When questioned about any regrets …common themes surfaced again and again." The top five regrets of the dying were: not having lived a life true to themsel...

My Darling Doll

In the news we read: The French National Assembly and UK lawmakers have approved the same-sex marriage bill. What is the next unfinished business? Paul Gallico, (1897 - 1976), American novelist, in 'The Enchanted Doll, wrote:" … remembered the approaching birthday, …modest gifts… the doll... she was made all of rag with a painted face, and represented a little girl with the strangest, tende...

Prayer Healing

We may safely assume that animals, excluding man, have no faculty of imagining; therefore, the primordial man's family, inside the dreadful caves, during the perilous long nights, had no alternative but to listen to the stories told by the old man as today's bedtime stories. Perhaps, he pointed out to the moon while inventing his stories. Naturally, through imagination, he formed new images and...

A friendly advice to all LGBT

Let's begin with the story of Lot, Abraham's nephew, Book of Genesis, chapters 11-14 and 19, which is as old as Mount Kilimanjaro vs. the fresh LGBT, an acronym: "And there came two angels to Sodom…; and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; bowed; And he said, '…, my lords, turn in, …, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, … rise up early, and go on your ways.' And t...

Phobio-klepto-kakisto-theocracy

Lord Acton said: "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Additionally, we are told that many dictators are surrounded by men of low mentality, and, finally, dictators always shut down free speech and free press. A friend living in a dangerous country sent me an email which prompted this story. First part of the email says that he, the friend, goes to a super market that...

One World Government

The Japan's surprise military strike on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, killed 2,402 and wounded 1,282 Americans. Very close to 9/11, nah? Some believe US President FDR was aware of the imminent attack, but he ordered the US fleet to move from the West Coast to the unsafe Pearl Harbor. Admiral Richardson advised FDR not to issue the order, but FDR removed the bad admiral and replaced him by Ad...

Egypt without Cleopatra

Egypt, with 5000 years of history, is the oldest civilization. An heir to this great civilization is the newly-elected President Morsi. In the flesh, he may be a far cry from all the dead pharaohs. A quick examination can reveal the claim. Mohamed Morsi Isa El-Ayyat, born 20 August 1951, standing against pyramids, is not as tall as any mummy pharaoh. Additionally, his table manners contradict...

Infantry Robots - Hamas, Gaza, Israel and the Middle East

Iron Dome, a highly maneuverable missile system, is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells, fired from 4 to 70 kilometers away. Statistically speaking, out of seven rockets fired simultaneously, Iron Dome managed to destroy only five. Missing two out of seven, in such a deadly game, is too much, thus making the Iron Dome undependable. Undoubtedly, recent Gaz...

Totally Naked Girls

Uncertainties gave man a clay god modeled after warriors of his time: bearded, fearsome, repeatedly banging a whip against the shaft of his heavy riding boots. Next to his man-made terrifying deity stood an indifferent insensitive well-organized giant called Nature which is 'the aggregate of the powers and properties of all things, the sum of all phenomena, together with the causes which produc...

Excluding Sanitary Pads

I, a female married high school teacher, am awaiting divorce. I terribly miss my children as they are taken away by my husband, a Mickey-mouse-college professor. Having no place to live, I have moved to my mother's apartment. I live in an unmentionable oil-rich police-state country in Middle East. The so-called husband has the right to divorce me anytime anywhere with or without my consent. Of co...

Shame on you

Desert people have an inalienable trait in common: absolute obedience to the hierarchical authority. The reason is obvious: The grand warlord owned or still owns the local water well. Obey the warlord or die of thirst. The choice is all yours. Do not be mistaken to believe that only the man at the pinnacle is a tyrant. Tyranny functions according to pecking order theory. All members of such societ...
