American Idiots

Why do people trust the new administration or the last administration? How is it possible?

Each Presidential Administration in the past 100 years has been proven to have lied to the Citizenry of this nation. It has been proved that each of these persons and their underlings have lied, connived, circumvented the Constitution and profited from doing so.

Yet, we still believe that this one…yes, this one, the last one and the next one is, was or will be telling us the truth.

Americans are this pathetically stupid?

I keep going back to Johnny Walker Lindh. This guy was paraded in front of America as if he were the blood soaked re-incarnation of Tamerlane.

In the end, he was naught but a drug addled boy who had never handled a gun and was rounded up amongst a group of half assed “talibs” like cattle.

The dude did nothing. His crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time and refusing to admit guilt when he was really guilty of nothing.

Yet, he was railroaded through our justice system and sentenced to prison.

Our system of justice is warped or perhaps, there is no justice in America. There is only those who have the funds to manipulate the legal system and those who do not.  Woe be unto those who do not have the means to fight and go against the grain.

I am supposedly a free man from a country governed by the principles of Liberty, yet, they tell me that I need permission to travel to Cuba.

Freedom?  Liberty?

The McSanctity of Life!

https://i0.wp.com/z.about.com/d/politicalhumor/1/0/1/V/iraq_mcdonalds.jpgI do not believe that life is sacred.  Merely being born does not make one worthy of life nor does it make one entitled to a good life or an easy life.  I believe that it is up to each individual to make their life sacred.

I’ve often asked the question and very rarely been answered, but, who defines what life is sacred.

Whose life is sacred Mother Theresa or Hitler?

Genghis Khan or Alexander the Great?

Xerxes or Ceaser?

Attila the Hun or Aetius, Master General of Rome?

Mahatma Gandhi or Kublai Khan?

Ted Bundy or Ted Kennedy?

Jeffrey Dahmer or Charles Manson?

Mussolini or Charles De Gaulle?

Pol Pot or Ho Chi Minh?

Singh Man Rhee or JImmy Carter?

Teddy Roosevelt or FDR?

Chiang Kai-shek or Mao Tse Tung (Mao Zedong)?

Josef Stalin or Leon Trotski or Vladimir Lenin or the Romanov family they murdered?

Was the life of George Patton more sacred or less sacred than that of Erwin Rommel?

The lives Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. Jackson who were two of the most pious and religious American Generals were more or less sacred than the lives of Grant and Sherman. Sherman who supposedly said that the only good indian is a dead indian and was the author of modern day total war.

The Monk in Southeast Asia who studies Buddhism and teaches by his example yet does not believe in Christ as his savior. Sacred or no?

The Hindu Brahman? Sacred or no?

The Roman Empire and it’s millions of souls. Both the murderer of Christ and the main vehicle by which Christianity became THE primary religion of Europe. Had there been no Ceaser, there’d have been no Constantine.

And in the end, we live our beliefs. America says it believes in the sanctity of life even as we demand higher profit ratios and cheaper sneakers and nicer houses at cheaper prices. These things all come at a high human toll.

Yet, life is sacred?

It’s a good thought that is seldom put into action.

We invade Iraq because it has oil which is the grease of the capitalist machine. Then we stand idly by and watch as genocide occurs across the African continent.

There is nothing sacred about it. We love the sentiment. It makes us all feel better. Jesus and his words of Faith, Hope and Love. Christians who worship the man, yet, ignore his words.

Personally, I think Jesus would be ashamed of Christendom.

Life is as sacred as a Super-sized Big Mac Menu Meal.

The McSanctity of Life.

America has proved this time and again.  We preach human dignity and self determination even as we support dictators who are willing to do our bidding.  We preach self determination even as we have a distinguished one hundred plus year history of deposing democratically elected governments in the name of corporate profits.

Before one of you morons calls me unAmerican or a “blame America firster,” you might want to read a little history.  Start with Chile and Guatemala.  It’s a world tour.  Next stop, Vietnam and Iran.  Come on back home and read a bit about Honduras, Panama and Cuba.  If you know nothing about these chapters of American history, speak not to me.  You’re a blind and ignorant fool.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end”

Obama is the next President of the United States of America

Barack Hussein Obama will be the next POTUS.  The latest polls show he is ahead with an estimated 350 electoral votes to around 180 for McCain.

What does this mean?

#1  The world will have to stop their decades long double standard of judging America a racist Nation.   Perhaps they will take a look at themselves for once.  Racism is alive and well in the world.  Whether it be the various genocides of Africa or the Euros and their Antisemitism or Asia and their one million ethnic hates or the Middle East and their hatred of all peoples not Muslim and their special hate reserved for the tiny nation of Israel.

(*Note:  I do not believe that all of the peoples of any of these regions harbor these hatreds. )

Of course, not all of the peoples of these regions are guilty but many of them love to point to the US and use us as justification for their hates and violence against minority peoples.  Black people in America will have to start dealing with a new reality.  A Black man in the White House ends many arguments that some folks like to use against White people.  Without the white vote, a Black President is an impossibility.  Discrimination will always exist.  But it can no longer be an excuse.

Unquestionably, Iran and their “dear leader” Ahmadinejad will push for Nuclear Weapon capability.  He knows that Barack Obama will seek to solve the issue diplomatically.  Obama will not dare seek a military resolution to the problem.  It will probably take a nuclear strike by Iran to get Obama to take a military stance on Iran.  Not that I think that this will happen.  Iran wants Nuclear weapon capability to offset the perceived threats of the US and Israel.  I don’t think anyone but a mad man will strike first with Nuclear missiles.  It would mean a sure death to the people of that Nation.  I don’t see Iran secreting nukes to Hezbollah either.  Everyone who pays attention to the Middle East knows that Hezbollah is the puppet of Iran.  It would be too obvious.

I think that we should unilaterally end all sanctions against Iran.  Our efforts for reform in Iran should be positive.  Aimed toward the people of Iran.  Same with Cuba.

I’m hoping that Obama keeps his promise and seeks to wean the US off of oil and other energy sources in the Middle East and other unstable areas and regimes.  I truly look forward to the day that we pull our support from the corrupt Wahhabi regimes of Saudi Arabia.  The Wahhabi are the genetic source of all terror groups of Sunni Islam.  The Wahhabi are also in the DNA of the Shi’a strain of terrorism.  Saudi Arabia is the funding source for Wahhabism world wide.  The House of Saud is the enemy and they are secure in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House.

Hopefully, Obama shows them the door.  Let them cozy up to China and India and let those countries defend that corrupt and evil regime.

Some good could come of the Obama Presidency.

I think a Democratic victory in the White House will go a ways further towards instilling confidence in the market as well.  Will it be enough to push our economy on to the road to recovery.  Only time will tell.  Let’s hope it does.

I don’t think that Obama will be truly foolish enough to pull the troops out of Iraq too swiftly.  I just can’t believe that he would be that foolish.

If Obama wins his second term, I think that al Qaeda will attack.  Obama will return to the empty threat/speech foreign policy of Clinton.  The Wahhabi will attack the periphery at first to test the resolve of Obama and his State Department.  If Obama shows no nerve.  If he shows no willingness to strike back in a concrete manner, al Qaeda will eventually strike into the heart of America.  Perhaps a dirty bomb in a large city.  They’ll test him first in a place like Afghanistan or Kuwait.  Next, they’ll try ply their trade against a soft target in a place like Djibouti.  If Obama shows no resolve.  If he gives a speech with empty threats and follows up with nothing or aimless strikes.  The leaders of al Qaeda will begin to plan their next 9-11.

People of Liberal persuasion will deny this to their death.  But it will happen.

Either the last year of the Obama first term or the first year of the 2nd Term will see a strike.  If Obama is truly a Carter/Clinton idealistic type.

I hope that he truly is to be good for America.  I am hoping that he is as good as his followers believe. He won’t get my vote, but once he is in office he has my support.  I will wish him success.

Worst case scenario:  Obama turns out to be a Carter re-tread and 2012 sees a Republican take back the White House with a clear mandate.

For now, Obama has a mandate for change.  Here’s hoping he does something good with it.
