Secretary of State/failed Oval Office sniffer John Kerry declares that ISIS is 'faltering' in the Mideast.
We haven't heard such good news since 1938, when Neville Chamberlain said, "Yeah, we've got
old Adolph boxed in pretty tight-this paper (holds up an egg on a stick) is proof positive that we've heard the last of him."

Can't wait, so...Random Thoughts Tuesday On Monday!
As I haven't ruffled enough feathers lately, this week is populated with some very religious days.
I hate religion. I resist Pagans telling Christians how to Church. No Maunday Thursday. No Easter.
I will rejoice in remembering Christ's Resurrection. Pagans can go do their pagan stuff somewhere else.
Tomorrow or soon the Apple Computer vs FBI hootenanny will be performed in some courthouse, generating a lot of ink and verbiage from Talkheaders on medias.
Really simple for me: Apple can tell the FBI to go climb a fig tree. The Government can STOP you from doing something illegal, but cannot abrogate your or my or Apple's protected rights, forcing us to DO something illegal. If the FBI wants to catch bad guys, they have to do it LEGALLY within the limits of the LAW, or they are themselves criminal.
Speaking of criminals, President Obama is in Cuba right now.
Caught a bit of news-a major league baseball player who defected from Cuba a few years ago has returned to his homeland to take part in an exhibition game against the Cuban National team.
He makes millions of dollars in America; according to the news report, before he defected he played baseball for the princely sum of four dollars a month.
I would like to see President Obama living on four dollars a month. In Cuba.
Another case of defection/asylum: good ol Bernie Sanders, who defected from Reality back before you were born (maybe) may end up in an asylum before this political season runs its nasty coarse.
I heard that his campaign was crowing about raising more money than the Clinton campaign in the past month.
What? What self respecting Socialist brags about raising money? Sounds kind of Capitalisty to me.
Be careful, Bernie! Gather too much money and you might become a millionaire and then you would be forced to protest yourself! Hence, the future asylum gig.
No Random post would be complete without giving my favorite Hillary a mention.
Hill? Cackle down to the local orchard and go climb a fig tree. Tell Bill: "I feel his pain."

This isn't a beat, but a reasoning. With the unreasonable...I mean Bernie supporters.
I have no doubt that Sanders is sincere in his beliefs. He has a lifetime of experiences which have molded him in to what he is today.
But I disagree with most of his fantastical beliefs.
Let's start with black people.
Bernie was THERE! Being arrested as a young man at civil rights protests.
I have no problem with that-it was an unequal time...but that time is no more.
Except in Bernie's head. And the heads of all Liberals who think "Black People" are a
disadvantaged GROUP which need protection from others.
If you see only groups, you never see anyone as an individual. There are millions of black people around the globe who do not need 'race leaders' to speak for them, to Lead them.
Each one is an individual. In this country there are millions of people who are black who work, raise kids and do their best to make it through life while totally ignoring those who tell them they are an unequal group who should be ANGRY.
Bernie also has a class problem, and I don't mean those shirts he wears.
Liberals and in this case, Socialists are all about economic class warfare.
Bernie hates the rich and thinks you should, too.
Bernie loves the poor and thinks you should, too.
He's a Socialist. Which means his ideal will be to do away with both.
Socialists will promise anything (free college?) to anyone, but in Socialism everyone is a slave to the State.
In Bernie's head, if you have a personal ambition- to be a doctor, an engineer or, Heaven help you, a writer...
you may be educated, but not for you. Only for the State. Your life only matters as a tiny cog in the State machine.
It's time for a but, Doug!
But, Doug! If Bernie wants to do away with poverty, that's a GOOD thing!
And if he could deliver on that ideal, his would be a noble cause. But look at every Socialist state on the planet which hasn't yet died, and you will find Poverty.
You'll find the Rich there, also. In charge of the State. Forcing their slaves to live and die so that they can live in luxury as they run everything.
Bottom line-while you may admire some of his arguments in a nebulous "That's right, Bernie! Stink it to Trump!" kind of atmo...if you think for yourself, wish to determine where you will live, what you will do for work, how you will live your life...then Bernie is your political enemy. Vote accordingly.

One method of relax that I've shared before, but not at Facebook:
Do dishes. By hand. Fill a glass with warm soapy water. Hand cover the top, flip it upside down and concentrate on letting the water SLOWLY drip out. Forget the world and watch the warm water
find the sink until the glass is empty. Ah.

I used the official FBI logo, but as we the people own the government, I just repurposed a bit of 'my own stuff'.
Here's the low down dirty shame of an opinion that I've been fomenting:
Hillary Clinton has been working towards this election since she stepped aside for Obama 8 years ago.
I think, to use an ancient expression, that she is "Whistling past the graveyard".
Meaning that she is putting up a big front, acting as if the Justice Department has never been concerned about her allegedly improper email server.
Here's a very important point-as she is running for President, she can claim that any such investigation by the FBI is politically motivated, political dirty tricks.
She can't point towards a "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" this time, as there is a Democrat in the White House, and the Congressional Republicants acquiesce to his every whim, so she needs a new villain to Demonize...John Kasich?
This may turn out to be the craziest election year since...ever.
The Repub deep pocket crowd might run Romney at the convention if Trump trumps the rest of the field.
The DNC, if Hillary is incarcerated, might lurch over to Kerry's mansion and ask if he still wants to be President. Because Bernie scares them more than Trump.
I was joking before about jolting Joe Biden and Obama flipping the tables over and running again with Joe as the nominal President whilst Obama hides behind the throne. After a year, Joe begs off "For his family" and Obama appoints his wife Vice President.
What? Legally he can't do that? That's never stopped him before.

Here's the thing-just being honest. Saw something very sad today, and it bothers me.
I won't share the incident, as sad is subjective; what saddens me might not affect you at all. And verse vicey.
But what I saw affirmed for me again that God is good to those who seek Him, and the Peace that He gives us the world will never know.
The world has no peace.
