Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

Middle-East mayhem!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

While watching some of the Sunday morning political shows this morning I was struck by the number of times Saudi Arabia was praised and Iran was condemned by the media, when in truth Fared Zakaria was the only one to get things into "Perspective" by claiming it was the exact opposite.

Look folks, as the de facto 'King of the World' I find myself agreeing with Fareed that the fundamentalist terrorist groups like ISIS, Hamas etc. are all Sunni and clandestinely supported by the government of Saudi Arabia.

Not only that, but they are supporting 'schools' and 'mosques' around the world that preach and foster their version of religious fundamentalism to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars per year!

And what about the Iranians? Well even though they agreed to stop their nuclear weapons program ....., they are also interfering with the  Syrians and the Iraqi's, but this is a far lesser crime than what the Saudi's are dong!

Oh, I know the whole Middle-East (with the exception of Israel) is one gigantic clusterfuck, but our main objective over there should be to gain a little peace in the region by sanctioning and placing an embargo on Saudi Arabia until they stop fostering all this instability. (And being such assholes!)

The way I see it anyway!

Another argument in the evolution, creation debate!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

Image result for caveman chasing womanI ran across this headline today: "Why Do Men Run Faster Than Women?"

It's really quite simple folks ......, EVOLUTION!

If they hadn't developed the ability to outrun and catch the ladies, that would have been they end of our species!

Saturday Morning Confusion About This Video!


Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

I am rather confused this morning because I'm not quite sure what the hell this is about, but if you watch it a few times it begins to make sense!

Don't give a damn?

Dear Friends: "And now for something completely different!"
A guy (Wallace Wilkerson) was sentenced to death in 1879 by firing squad for murder. He requested not to be bound on the chair because he wanted to die like a man.

Ten men shot several rounds at him at close range. The wooden chair was completely destroyed under the hail of bullets without a single shot touching him. He was heard exclaiming on the ground, "I can't believe they missed!"

He was, however, hanged the following morning.
 That's life folks!

Trump makes me want to puke!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

Image result for donald trump clipartThe latest news from the continuing saga of Donald Drumpf  comes to us from the CBC program 'Power and Politics' where they showed Trumplethinskin at a photo-op for all the leaders of NATO (28) today and he literally pushes one of the guys from a small country (Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia?) out of the way so he could get a better spot in the photograph!!!!

Now this doesn't surprise me kids, because it's in keeping with all the other stuff he's done since he entered politics, but it does make me shudder that someone could be so ignorant, imbecilic and moronic as this guy!

That's all folks, just a quick note that Donald Trump makes me want to throw up!


CRUISING DOWN THE RIVER (On A Sunday Afternoon)

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

Young-Earth creationists have a bit of an obsession with the Grand Canyon. Where geologists see billions of years of rock layers carved out by a persistent flow of water, young-Earth creationists see sediments laid down in Noah’s flood. As the flood receded, they believe, water became trapped behind natural dams, until it finally broke through in a “catastrophic erosion” that carved the Grand Canyon.

Another prominent young-Earth creationist, Steve Austin, took photos of nautiloid fossils in the park and used them to argue that the creatures died during the flood. “I think the NPS has felt a bit stung by past creationist research in the Grand Canyon,” says Steven Newton, who teaches geology at College of Marin and serves as the programs and policy director for the National Center for Science Education, a nonprofit that opposes teaching creationism in public schools.


(It’s hard to imagine how much can happen in geological time. About 1.7 billion years ago, a series of volcanoes crashed into what would become the continent of North America and created mountains taller than the Himalayas today. Those mountains eroded back down to hills to form the rock that now rests at the base of the canyon. Over countless millions of years, a shallow sea expanded and contracted over the area, laying down the sediment that would become the sandstone, shale, and limestone layers. Plate tectonics then pushed those rock layers up and up to became the Colorado Plateau. And finally, flowing water carved its way down 1.7 billion years of rock.)

A cancer in their midst!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

I heard reports out of Manchester, England today that the Muslim community there is being harassed, and even assaulted because of the terrorist bombing in that city.

Look folks, I can sympathize with these people to a certain extent, but they have to realized that there is a cancer in their midst, and the only way to eradicate it is to cut it out from the inside! (And don't kid yourself folks, there is a sizable minority of Muslims who have sympathy for these murderers!)


Muslims everywhere are the one's that have to identify and expose these psychopaths ...., and no amount of outside influence will do it! (If they don't do it quickly the terrorists will have achieved their objective of starting another clash of civilizations, because these assholes are still pissed about the crusades ..., and there is no known way to appease them!

Our normal Western justice system is not be able to deal with these people, and the only way to assure we get rid of them is to execute them as soon as they're caught. That way there is no one left to extort the authorities for their release, and no more fuss and bother about what to do with them in the long term!

I know it sounds harsh, (and they are fighting among themselves as well as against Christians) but if we do away with them permanently then there won't be any more beheadings over there either!


What's a trillion bucks here or there!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

Now I  don't wish to demonize and chastise the Trump government any more than necessary but this latest gaffe seems to once again show just how inept and incompetent these people are!

Image result for trump clipartI'm not sure of all the details but Trump's 4 TRILLION dollar budget, through an accounting error, or adding when they should have subtracted, or just plain insane projections on what the economy is going to do over the next ten years.
(Remember Trump said all the tax cuts for the rich and the benefits cuts for the poor will be paid by increasing the G.D.P. by 4% a year, when it hasn't got above 1 - 2 % for decades.)

Trump seems more and more willing to apply real estate accounting methods to government funding and expenditures .........., WHICH DOESN'T WORK!

Anyway, the long and short of it is that the 4 trillion dollar budget was off by about 2 trillion!

GO FIGURE!

(This isn't a slow motion train wreck any longer kids ...., it's turning into something more like that asteroid strike that wiped out the dinosaurs!)

Read 'em and weep!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

Image result for donald trump clipartFor all you poor fools that voted for Don the Con Trumplethinskin you might want to think about what his next budget will include: (President Trump's 2018 budget request, delivered to Congress today with the title “A New Foundation for American Greatness,” has roiled the vast majority of American voters!)

"Trump budget seeks huge cuts to science and medical research, disease prevention, social programs, (major cuts to programs for low-income Americans) education and health insurance for children of the working poor.!"

All so he can give more money to the military and the rich!


Folks the very people who voted for him are the one's getting shafted!

Where is Bernie Sanders when we need him!
The budget seeks $1.4 trillion in savings with significant cuts to many domestic programs. But for 18 independent agencies, it goes a step further—and proposes eliminating their funding entirely. Since releasing his preliminary “skinny budget” proposal in March, Trump has made it clear that he wants to fatten one thing: the Department of Defense. He’ll increase the department’s budget by $54 billion, a move he says sends “a message of American strength and resolve” to the world.

To do that, Trump plans to shrink the budget for the State Department and USAID by 29 percent and outlines a 31 percent cut in funding for the Environmental Protection Agency, discontinuing all funds for the Clean Power Plan, international climate change programs and research, and for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Chesapeake Bay Program.

In the budget, Trump proposes a reduction in funding and eventual elimination of 18 independent agencies—those that exist outside of federal departments headed by a Cabinet secretary. One of those agencies is the Appalachian Regional Commission, a federal-state partnership focused on economic development in a region encompassing all of West Virginia and parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Its inclusion is notable, because it serves a region that largely supported Trump, and which he has promised to revive economically.

Another is the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, an agency created in 1967 to ensure universal access to television and radio programming. The CPB’s budget relies almost entirely on federal funds and it distributes most of its funding to locally owned public radio and television stations. Trump also proposed eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts, an agency supporting projects in arts education, literature, music, and other disciplines.

Here’s the complete list of the independent agencies Trump wants to eliminate:
  • African Development Foundation
  • Appalachian Regional Commission
  • Chemical Safety Board
  • Corporation for National and Community Service
  • Corporation for Public Broadcasting
  • Delta Regional Authority
  • Denali Commission
  • Institute of Museum and Library Services
  • Inter-American Foundation
  • U.S. Trade and Development Agency
  • Legal Services Corporation
  • National Endowment for the Arts
  • National Endowment for the Humanities
  • Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation
  • Northern Border Regional Commission
  • Overseas Private Investment Corporation
  • United States Institute of Peace
  • Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
THE ONLY BRIGHT SPOT IN ALL THIS CRAP IS THAT the budget is likely to face significant opposition from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in Congress.

How Come Basquiat Can Sell A Painting For $110 Million

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into Perspective!"

How can some guy get $110 million bucks for a stupid painting while I have to watch my pennies!
 

Last week, deceased artist Jean-Michel Basquiat’s 1982 painting “Untitled” was sold at auction for a whopping $110.5 million, making it the most expensive painting by an American artist ever sold at auction.
Now here's the kicker folks! The son-of-a-bitch didn't even give the painting a name or title ........., it's just called "the painting!"

I tell ya kids, life ain't fair!!!!!!!!
