“This Ain’t Wakanda!”

This is right on time! I had to share!

https://shahallah.wordpress.com/2018/02/21/black-people-fell-for-the-okie-doke-again-smh-pt-33/

So, to ALL the Black folks who spent your money on African garb and headdresses, paid a mint for popcorn and sodas and nacho cheese chips and Hershey bars and Nestle bars, and who left the movie theater after viewing “Black Panther” screaming, “Wakanda Forever!,”when you got back to the ‘hood’, that’s not yet gentrified, and you stepped on used syringe needles of Black heroin addicts and gazed upon the used condoms of johns that frequent drug-addicted prostitutes and when you got shot in the ass after having been caught in the crossfires of gang shootouts over drug turf, did “Black Panther” come down off that movie screen upon hearing you scream, “Wakanda Forever?”

There is no goddamn Wakanda! There never has been a Wakanda and there never will be a Wakanda. The only thing that’s going down over in Africa is the same shit that’s going down in America; the entire continent of Africa is owned by white men, the same as our asses in AmeriKKKa are owned by white men. And for Black folks to sit somewhere on your stupid asses getting all hyped up about some fiction shit when horrifying REAL shit is going down every day in Black ghettos and in prisons where almost 3 million Black men and women are slaving away for corporations, is just beyond ridiculous! I can only shake my head over the continuation of your cluelessness, ignorance and willingness to be made a fool of, daily!

There is no fake ass Disney Black Panther coming to save you from mass incarceration, police brutality, police murder of Blacks, gentrification, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass poverty, mass homelessness, income inequality, home foreclosures, sky-rocketing rents, poisoned water, water-shutoffs and the goddamn list is endless. But there you sit, proudly shouting and screaming with your fake ass African costumes on about some made up African kingdom while your son sits beside you, looking up at your awestruck gaze and at the foolishness on the screen and wondering why he does not live in “Wakanda!” You’re not even a “Black Panther” to your own children because when they head home, they get the video games out and to hell with homework for if not, then why is the school drop out rate for Black children so high? Is screaming for “Wakanda” going to help out with this?

With a goddamn flaming, racist, bigoted president that’s called all African countries AND Haiti, “Shitholes!” where the hell do you think you stand in this particular shithole? But “Wakanda!” to the rescue, right? Disney’s “Black Panther!” to the rescue, right? Some of you Black folks are dumber than a goddamn horse and that’s putting it mildly. Skinhead groups are gaining members daily. This president backs them up while you are sitting in a theater gazing avidly at a fictional kingdom in Africa when even if you was to drag your ass back to Africa, those Africans wouldn’t spit on you to put a fire out on your ass. In all these centuries past, when has an African country made a statement condemning the fact that Africans allowed other Africans to be stolen from that region? When has there ever been a call from any ‘kingdom’ in Africa for all of descendants of African slaves to come back to the glories of the motherland to be welcomed into the fold? Not ever! There are no African kingdoms. There are only corrupt African leaders in every region in Africa who are still selling out their own people just like in days of old. That is why our Black asses are sitting here looking at a goddamn stupid ass movie that in no way even pretends to depict just what the hell really is going on in Africa.

Black people always have to be entertained. You will spend your money on anything that will entertain you or to make you up to look as much like your oppressors as you can. Fake ass European hair weaves, fake ass braids, fake ass wigs, fake ass nails, fake ass makeup. That is all Black people are about, fake ass shit and fantasy while the rest of the world is fully cognizant of their plight while we want to be entertained. We want to believe that we are doing something by donning a dashiki with an African headdress and running inside a theater to look at more fake ass shit! We will even take up some holiday, talking about we’re celebrating Kwanzaa. What the fuck does Kwanzaa have to do with you? You’re fucking not African! Ever with the pretense that your history began in Africa. Your history begins with your own family here in AmeriKKKa. You can’t even manage to love the members of your own immediate family but yet, you want to get DNA tests done to see which fucking tribe you belong to in a land that lays no claim to your ass. How stupid is that? And what are you going to do if you find out that someone in your ancestral tree came from the Congo? Go over there and get raped, brutalized and terrorized like those women and  children who live in the Congo?

“In eastern Congo, rape and sexual violence are routinely employed as weapons to subjugate villages and terrorize entire communities. From old women to young children, the soldiers do not discriminate; the stories of their brutality and torture are so horrific that they rarely reach western ears. Inside the country, however, the locals have accepted mass rape as the status quo; even women who have been attacked will tell you: “This is just Congolese life.”

Yeah! That’s “Wakanda,” ain’t it? Did you read that? Even OLD WOMEN are not safe from being raped, brutalized and tortured. But your African head wrap and dashiki enables you to share their pain, doesn’t it? But they’re not supposed to be treated like that since they are living in “Wakanda!” being protected by their king, the “Black Panther” according to your dumb, stupid ass and Walt Disney Pictures!

“Decades of civil war before South Sudan became a nation and continuing to the present have left it one of the poorest countries in the world. Wracked by conflict, the young nation hasn’t been able to provide its people the basics of adequate healthcare, education, and income opportunities. Children are paying the price with their lives.

More than 5.7 million South Sudanese don’t have enough food to sustain themselves, and food insecurity continues to rise, likely reaching 6 million mid-2018. Nearly 4 million people are displaced because of conflict and hunger, including 2 million who have fled to neighboring countries since December 2013. Uganda hosts more than 1 million refugees from South Sudan; 60 percent of the displaced are children.”

This child in South Sudan wants to know “Where is Black Panther?” And where is “Wakanda?”

And I suppose, that’s also, “Wakanda?” It is quite apparent that I could continue in this vein, but the point should be well made. There is nothing for any Black person to feel ‘good’ about after having watched “Black Panther.” Let me ask you something. Did you Black men dress up like Tyler Perry did in all of his “Madea” movies when you went to watch them? Did you dress in drag to go see, say, “Madea Goes To Jail?” But for some strange ass reason, the whites release a movie about a non-existent kingdom in Africa where some supposed super hero is king and there you go, completely outfitted as though you, yourselves are royalty from a rich kingdom in Africa when you’re nothing more than weak, punk ass bitches who can’t even tell when you’re being used. How much of your money that you just gave over to see Black Panther will make it into the hands of Black people within their few remaining communities? NONE! Because Black people, even while living in their few remaining communities are still handing their money over to the Koreans, the Pakistanis, the Chinese, the whites; every one else but to another Black person.

I just recently moved from Baltimore, MD and I can tell you from first hand experience that there is no sign of “Wakanda Forever!” going on all up in Baltimore, MD. There is, however, plenty of heroin and crack addicts. There are plenty of Black people nodding on methadone. There are plenty who are mentally ill and homeless. There are plenty who have been shot by the cops and who actually survived, but who are wheel-chair bound and still full of bullets they’ll eventually die from. There are so many gangs, they’ve lost count. Baltimore recorded 343 homicides last year. Was this due to “Black Panther” coming in and ridding Baltimore of all the bad cops and bad, bad whitey? Hell no! These shootings were all about Black men shooting each other to death over drug turf or other Black people shooting each other just for the hell of it. One Black woman, who did not live in a kingdom, but lived in a housing project, was shot dead by a teenager simply because she called the police to stop this particular teenager from stealing her child’s bike, AGAIN! The Black teen shot this mother in her face, in front of her children, and calmly walked away. “Wakanda Forever!” Buy your dashikis here! If it were not so ridiculously sad, it would be funny to picture the lot of you sitting up in a theater looking as stupid as you could possibly look in your dashikis and African head wraps. I can only imagine since I will never be foolish enough to sit alongside you as you display your ignorance for all to see. Black folks, I don’t know why, but you continue to amaze me over how you are not even embarrassed at how stupid you really are, especially the so-called, adults!

This is Baltimore’s “Wakanda!” What a rich looking kingdom to be proud of, that is!

..and this is also Baltimore’s “Wakanda!”

Black people, just keep on heading in the direction that you are heading in and you will find something alright, but believe me, the last thing you will find is “Black Panther” coming to save you and take you to “Wakanda Forever!” Every single day, you have less and less to lose and yet, you never gain any knowledge from your losses. More’s the goddamn pity!

And As The Seconds Tick Away Towards The New Year…

As I raise my flute in drunken glee,
I look upon what was once a live tree.
So concerned with this planet and global warming,
my resolution to do better can wait til morning.

For tonight, I celebrate with friends and acquaintances,
spreading well wishes and exchanging whispered confidences.
The wrongs of this world, for just one night
can wait a little longer for us to do what’s right.

A sick child with no health care will have to hold on
until I open my bleary eyes to greet the new dawn.
The Black man being dragged by the Ku Klux Klan
should have seen them coming, he should have ran.

Of course I care about the people who have addictions
just like I care about my neighbor who can’t afford her prescriptions.
I know about the homeless who have formed a tent city.
But for just this night, champagne will take away my pity.
And as the seconds tick away towards the New Year,
even champagne cannot stop me from shedding another tear.

I wrote this one because as we celebrate the ringing out of the old and in with the new, I cannot help but believe that more misery, cruelty, suffering, chaos, war and all things of horror, will follow us into this new year and beyond, for what will have changed?

As we head to our parties tonight, break out our party favors and drink our champagne toasts at midnight, wish each other a “Happy New Year,” are we really going to think that this year will be any happier than 2017 or 2016 or 2015? What is going to change to get us to actually mean it when we say, “Happy New Year?” It will be just another year of the same because we won’t change. We will continue in our old ways of ignoring those who are less fortunate. We will pretend as though there are not wars being fought just because. We will never for a minute think that we have aided and abetted in the destruction of this planet through our selfish acts as we scream, “Happy New Year To One And All!” If we really meant that, we’d know it because it would show, but when you look around, does it show? Does it look as though we give a damn about the children who go to bed, hungry? Does it look like we give a damn about the homeless? Does it look like we care about those who are in unimaginable pain because they have no health insurance? Does it look like we are going to start doing something to hold our elected representatives accountable for the way they continuously make the working poor pay for the idleness of the rich? Does it look like the ‘new year’ will bring about a change in the human psyche which seems hell bent on self-destruction? If any of you ponder these questions, I already know what the outcome will be. Exactly how you were in 2015, 2016, 2017 is how you will be in 2018 and on and on it will go until they plant you. Because we are always going to wait til tomorrow to ‘do’ better. Just like each and every year, we are bombarded with ads to lose weight and get in shape and some people actually make a resolution to do just that and then after a month, what happens? Back to square one.

And so, I will not say, “Happy New Year!” I will merely say, “Welcome to the rest of your life!” War, misery, homelessness, joblessness, starvation, income inequality, racism, ignorance, selfishness, arrogance, greed, lust, apathy and complacency and your solutions to getting through all of this; heroin, crack, alcohol, weed, mass murder and suicide.

“Welcome, To The Rest Of Your Life! Cheers!”

If You Are Mentally Ill, A Drunk Or A Drug Addict, The Army Wants YOU!

 

And no, this is not fake news. I only wish it were.

Army Now Accepting Recruits With Serious Mental Illness!

WASHINGTON – People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year’s goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.

What the fuck??!!! Because the Army is having problems meeting recruitment goals, the Army has now lowered its standards even further to include those who self-mutilate, are bi-polar, suffer from depression and abuse drugs and alcohol. So, I guess Army recruitment centers will now be set up in mental health clinics all across the United States. Army recruitment centers will be set up where Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are held. Army recruitment centers will now be set up where Narcotics Anonymous meetings are held and where folks line up to get their methadone.

But according to the Veterans Administration, 20 veterans commit suicide a day. In 2014, the latest year available, more than 7,400 veterans took their own lives, accounting for 18 percent of all suicides in America and this occurred BEFORE this new ban was lifted and so this will add to those who take their own lives since they’ll already be mentally ill or be vulnerable to mental illness and suicide BEFORE they’re ever sent through basic training.

The whole world should be laughing at US because what most of us have been saying all along has now been proven; the fact that we have a military that is so useless, it is laughable. No wonder every military action undertaken by the U.S. has failed in recent decades and continues to this very day. The U.S. military couldn’t effectively round up ants at an ant farm because the U.S. military is filled with an inept bunch of drug-addicted, mentally ill, suicidal rejects from grade school and the situation is about to get worse AND how!

There is no way in hell that I would join the military and expect some self-mutilating, depressed and/or bi-polar, drug addicted alcoholic to watch my back. I’d be more concerned with what was going on behind me in the ranks of my so-called fellow soldiers than I’d be concerned with a ‘foreign’ enemy I was facing. If I said that I was appalled, I would be lying because this does not surprise me; not in the least. I have been saying for quite some time and in no uncertain terms that our military is as ill-prepared to fight and win a war as new born babies are.

So, go ahead! Sign on the dotted line and when you’re killed, it will not be because some foreign terrorist sent you to meet your maker, it’ll be because one of your fellow soldiers, who was already screwed up in the head, went berserk and murdered his entire outfit and then turned his gun on himself because in the heat of battle, he forgot to take his psych meds. And for those who are drug addicts and are sent over to Afghanistan to guard opium…..uh….excuse me a minute, willya while I get up off the floor over laughing at that one! A heroin addict is supposed to stand guard over a poppy field and not go nuts for that opium? Are they fucking serious??!!! LMAO!!

I literally find this all quite laughable because there is no way in hell that with this shit coming down the pike, that I would suit up and head to foreign lands to be backed up by essentially, the blind, the crippled and most definitely, the crazy! Join the army? Indeed! But know this, don’t act as though you weren’t warned because even though the Army has been keeping this on the down low, do yourself a favor and research “Army lifts ban recruits of people with a history of self-mutilation, bi-polar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse!” And if you don’t have a problem with someone sitting behind you taking a razor blade to their arms while you’re in a warzone, sign up. If you don’t have a problem with someone going through such a serious bout of depression as to be thoroughly useless in a warzone, sign up. If you have no problem with a drunk, shaking so bad because he can’t get to some booze and he’s holding a gun pointed at you, sign up. If you have no problem with a person who is a recovering heroin addict, guarding poppy plants beside you in Afghanistan, sign up. And good luck with that! DAYUM! I just cannot stop laughing because you are SO dead! But do you really think that those who put this all into play are going to be standing right beside you with folks such as these? Hell no! They’ll be safe in their beds while you’re sitting somewhere hoping that the guy next to you is not a heroin addict, is not into self-mutilation, is not suffering from a bout of severe depression today. But as they say, “Keep hope alive, that is…until YOU’RE not thanks to the depressed dude who went off his psych meds while in the middle of a warzone!

There Is A Simple Solution To ‘Ramsomware’, But You Don’t Want To Hear It!

 

What is this ‘Wannacry ransomware’ or ‘WannaCrypt ransomware’?

‘Ransomware’ is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.

On Friday, the world experienced the wrath of a well-coordinated ransomware attack, known as WannaCrypt. The attack caused Britain’s NHS to cancel surgeries, a wide array of Russian and Chinese private and public institutions to be crippled most of the day, and the rest of the world to recoil in shock.

How could a single piece of malware that exploited a vulnerability identified long ago by the NSA, and leaked last month by a group called the Shadow Brokers, wreak so much havoc?

Yes indeed, how could this malware have wreaked so much havoc? It’s simple. Because we are stupid. We have grown so dependent on technology and artificial intelligence that we have lost our intelligence. In handing over every aspect of our lives to machines, we have given up any privacy we had which includes our medical records, our social security number; our very identity. This is why we are constantly hearing of identity theft and this has produced another corporation to operate in order to ‘restore our good name’ and to take back what was stolen from thieves, for a price, of course.

Now along comes this ransomware software that has been holding computer systems hostage until money is paid in the form of Bitcoin. If there were no computers, would this have even happened? Of course not.

The article goes on to state that Britain’s National Health Service had to cancel surgeries. Would the NHS have had to cancel surgeries a mere thirty years ago? No! Because medical records were kept in the form of folders in a file cabinet. You remember those, don’t you? Your doctor came into the exam room with your paper file and in it were your medical records and all that was needed to ensure that you’d had all of your immunizations, checkups and any upcoming medical events. You received a telephone call to remind you of any preparations you needed to make before surgery and guess what, we did fine. But now, since all medical records are electronic and are at the mercy of anyone who wants to underhandedly try and hold them for ‘ransom’, we’ve got a problem. This is only the beginning. You can’t see how easy it is for your information to end up in the hands of those who seek to profit from it? All the hacking of your credit/debit cards taught you nothing? Of course not because you are still handing them over. You don’t even remember a time before there were credit/debit cards, do you? More’s the pity because we were all the better for it.

What we have here is ‘civilization’, is it not? And how well is that working out for us? We are so happy, aren’t we? Can’t you tell just by going on Facebook and Twitter? Isn’t everyone just loving all up and down on each other? No one is sending vitriolic comments back and forth. Family members are not blocking one another over political differences, are they? Can you not see what is happening to us? We are descending, not into civilized mode, but into such boorish, uncouth and vulgar behavior, we would put Neanderthals to the blush. But we have all the creature comforts we could possibly want; electricity, running water, indoor toilets, computers, video games, garage door openers, devices that turn on/off our lights, open our doors, alarms for our homes, vehicles to get us to where we want to go, airplanes to get us there even faster and trains for the view. We’ve got it all. And this has made us most happy. So, why then, this?

HOUSTON —
Americans actually report being among the most unhappy people in the world.
Anti-depressant usage has increased 400 percent since 1994. So why are so many people may be unhappy, and what you can do to change that?

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in 10 adults in America reports being clinically depressed.

It’s probably more than that. Why are we unhappy? We’ve got it all, don’t we? We’ve got ALL the creature comforts and so then, why are we depressed? Why are we on opioids? Why are we committing suicide at alarming rates?

Suicide; The Saddest Trend
“America is in the grip of a sustained raise in the suicide rate across all age groups and for both sexes. From 1999 to 2014, the suicide rate rose by 24%. The numbers are adjusted to take account of aging. Men shoot themselves; women take poison. There has been a rise in suffocation and strangulation.”

Add to this the fact that we are a nation of addicts, as well.

Inside a Killer Drug Epidemic: A Look at America’s Opioid Crisis

Opioid addiction is America’s 50-state epidemic. It courses along Interstate highways in the form of cheap smuggled heroin, and flows out of “pill mill” clinics where pain medicine is handed out like candy. It has ripped through New England towns, where people overdose in the aisles of dollar stores, and it has ravaged coal country, where addicts speed-dial the sole doctor in town licensed to prescribe a medication.

Public health officials have called the current opioid epidemic the worst drug crisis in American history, killing more than 33,000 people in 2015. Overdose deaths were nearly equal to the number of deaths from car crashes. In 2015, for the first time, deaths from heroin alone surpassed gun homicides.

Again I ask, why are we a nation of addicts when we should be celebrating ALL that we have in the form of technology? Technology has given us all of our creature comforts. We don’t have to use a washboard to do our laundry like our grandmothers had to do. We don’t have to go out back and use the toilet like many of our folks in the south had to do. We don’t have to dry our clothing on the clothesline. We’ve got dryers for that. We’ve got microwaves so we don’t have to wait to eat. We’ve got mixers so we can beat that cake batter so much faster. We’ve got a device that will even open and close our window blinds for us. Look at all the gadgets we’ve got. Hell! Even our car can park itself and some can drive without us. And soon, kiosks are coming to fast food restaurants and so we don’t even have to bother with ordering our fast food from a person, we’ll just punch in on a screen what we want and voila, our order is complete. So why are we unhappy, pill popping, suicidal, stressed out and willing to be held hostage by malware? I’ll tell you why. This is not civilization. This is not paradise. This is us aiding and abetting in our own demise. This is what those who are behind the scenes had in store for us all the time.

We are a Social Security number, a credit score, a zip code, an insurance risk, a medical records number on a computer, but we are never, ever seen as human and so we don’t even think of each other as human and this is why we treat each other like shit. This is not civilization. This is a dystopian society; a society of human oppression, misery and disease. And we are all held hostage by the very devices we think we need in order to exist. We don’t need these things. These ‘things’ need us. Those who implement these ‘things’ and who control these ‘things’ need us. We don’t need them. We work because we think we need to and we are only prolonging our misery and our suffering and those who put this all into play are counting on us never realizing and waking up to the fact that we are aiding and abetting in assuring that our suffering and misery will continue until we either get so depressed, we take drugs or we just step up on a stool, put a rope around our necks and then step off that stool.

Why is money important? Who made money important? What do you think would happen if there was a hacker who could bring down our entire electric grid? Oh I’ve read articles telling us that ‘90% of us would be dead in no time flat’. That is just not true. Those of us who are alive today just cannot remember a time when there was no power grid to begin with. Did those people die? Did they all starve? If they did, we would not be here. Think about that. Our so-called creature comforts which are a direct result of an electric grid are what is standing between us and the simple things in life that were all we needed until we were told otherwise. We were told that we needed to buy a house and so get a mortgage. Go to the bank and hock yourself for 30 years and then work for someone to pay for that house because that was the American dream. And millions of us did just that. We were told that the horse and buggy was too slow. Now, you have an automobile and is it getting you where you want to go any faster? Those hours you spend sitting in traffic, a horse could have galloped by you multiple times. And you would not be choking on carbon dioxide fumes. The Amish don’t seem to mind getting around via horse and buggy or not having electricity and so then why are we willingly going along with this ‘Utopia’ which is anything but? Who is controlling us? Who is getting rich off us? Who made the barter system obsolete? Who got us hating one another since we feel we don’t need each other or that we can’t depend on each other like we used to do so many, many years ago?

You see, the so-called ‘elites’ are counting on us not waking up to the realization that money could be made redundant just as they would be if we no longer gave money any value. And to devalue money, to make money worthless is to quit buying and to not buy into the fallacy that without money, life would end. Life would actually begin without money. Think about it. Why have they made it illegal to live off-grid? Because by doing so, you are not giving money any value. You have devalued money. You’ve made it redundant. You’ve made those who’ve made money mean everything to us, redundant and so therefore, there would be no place for them, no use for them and no use for money. We would actually need each other, depend on each other which is what we used to do.  The cops and the military are only there to protect the interests of the ‘elites’. They are there to serve them, not us. And you cannot see this?

I remember when I was growing up, there used to be what was called, ‘rent parties’. If someone did not have enough to pay their rent, folks in the neighborhood would host dinners and every mother would cook and offer plates of food to be sold at the ‘rent party’  and the money would be handed over to tide the person who lost their job over until they got back on their feet. Now, we use ‘GoFundMe’. But the thing about that is, could it be caught up in the next ‘ransomware’ attack and the money stolen by hackers? Again, just something to think about.

It is really sad when there is an epidemic of drug addicts and suicides. It is really sad when people have allowed themselves to be played for that ‘almighty dollar’. And the sad fact is that churches are part of the problem. If ‘Jesus’ could preach by the Sea of Galilee, then why the need for all of these palaces of worship? If Jesus had nothing but contempt for what he called, ‘the moneychangers’ and began to cast them out of the temple, what does that tell you about how Jesus felt about money? You cannot have it both ways; worship Jesus and money. You don’t worship, nor do you adhere to the teachings of Jesus because if you did, you would ‘leave your worldly goods behind and follow him’. But you’re hypocrites because you won’t do that. You are the ‘moneychangers’; the hypocrites that Jesus cast out of the temple. Money is not buying us happiness. Money is only buying us someone else’s illusion of ‘happiness’ and it’s not working for millions, if not billions of us. Think about it.

And Jesus said,

What see I here? Shall my Father’s house be thus dishonored? Is this the house of God, or is it a market-place? How can the strangers who come from the land of the Gentiles to worship God perform their devotions in this tumult of usury? And you,” he continued, advancing a step toward the priests, who stared at him in amazement, “You priests, guardians of the temple, can you see this abomination and permit it to continue? Woe be unto you! He who searches the heart knows why you encourage such disorder. “Away with you from here, servants to Mammon! I command it. Take what belongs to you and quit the holy place!”

Although I am not religious because religion has been turned into whatever your preacher deems it is, I am sure that you can see your own church or house of worship in the above paragraph. And so what does that say for you? Think about it while you’re sitting in traffic choking on fumes and playing with your smartphone.  Think about the fact that the reason why you won’t do anything about your situation other than become a drug addict or commit suicide is because we have been made soft and pliable and this is why despite all of our so-called creature comforts, we are the most depressed, drug addicted suicidal ‘people’ that never lived! And those who put this all into play are counting on our very acquiescence; our submission to the continued status quo and we will not disappoint them.

So, More Stupid Cannon Fodder Is Headed To Afghanistan?

 

Why oh why am I not surprised? Maybe this will help explain things. And this!

Trump Weighs Sending as Many as 5,000 More Troops to Afghanistan

The Trump administration is weighing a drastic change when it comes to Afghanistan: Whether to send as many as 5,000 more troops in the fight.

A U.S. official told The Post that Trump wants to “start winning” again.

In my post titled “I Make Thirty-Eight Thousand Dollars A Year!,” I gave the average dollar amount U.S. soldiers sent into Afghanistan make and that dollar amount is $38,000 plus medical, housing, uniforms, a coffin and a flag to drape over that coffin when they bring your dead carcass back to the states for burial. And what a solemn ceremony that will be. It won’t however, be attended by any of the top brass. You know, the ones who sit in their ivory tower and give the go-ahead to send some stupid schmuck like you, who doesn’t know any better to fight uh…let me see. Fight who or whom? Who are you fighting? You don’t even know. You just suit up like the good little robotic, stupid schmuck you are. Are you fighting the Taliban, ISIS, Ali-baba and the Forty Thieves or just some camel herders? You don’t have a clue who you’re supposed to be fighting in Afghanistan and what business is it of America as to what goes on in Afghanistan? That country is nowhere near the U.S. and so what affects that country cannot possibly have an effect on this one seeing as how the Taliban has no need to come over here and fuck shit up. This shit is already fucked up over here. This country is over $19 trillion dollars in debt, healthcare is a no-show for millions, homeless tent cities are forming daily, food lines are looking like Depression era bread lines, retail stores are shuttering their doors in unprecedented numbers, entire cities are declaring bankruptcy and even Puerto Rico is bankrupt, car manufacturers are shuttering their doors this summer and car dealerships are begging people to buy cars because their inventory is bloated, but we are told to worry about the Taliban? And so suit up and get the hell over to Afghanistan and fuck shit up over there because goddamn! The U.S. should not be the only country that’s fucked up. Hell! Misery loves company, doncha know! And like the good little sheeple you are, you will do as you are told.

But guess what? America CANNOT win a war in Afghanistan, just like America couldn’t win the war in Vietnam and it didn’t win the Korean War. The U.S. is once again, bogged down in a quagmire and those who send the cannon fodder to fight their wars don’t have a problem continuing to commit insanity which we all know is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results’. And quite obviously, many Americans are insane since they have no problem following the orders of the insane. How many U.S. soldiers coming back in body bags will it take to wake the American people up? How many soldiers have to get themselves in the news for going bat shit crazy and riddling their family members with bullets before you realize that this could all have been avoided?

Didn’t Trump just drop the (MOAB)Mother Of All Bombs in Afghanistan? So? What did that accomplish? Didn’t he think that would make all the difference in the world? To send the biggest non-atomic bomb to Afghanistan, drop it and voila? Problem solved, right? Wrong! Now, it’s back to deploying more cannon fodder because the MOAB didn’t accomplish a damn thing. So, what did the MOAB do? Leveled a few caves. That’s what it did. Ain’t that something? How much did the MOAB cost that merely leveled a few caves in Afghanistan? One website reported the MOAB costing $16 million, another one cited $314 million and one claimed it cost $341 million. The exact number doesn’t really matter. What matters is that whatever the cost of this bomb, it didn’t do a damn thing about a damn thing! You have read not one report that this massive bomb had a devastating impact on the so-called Taliban or even ISIS in Afghanistan because if it had had any effect at all, why would Trump contemplate sending an additional 5,000 American soldiers into Afghanistan? Trump is adhering to the script as written by the warmongers who play these little games with the stupid American sheeple whereas they pretend to do one thing while actually doing another. When they tell Trump to send a massive bomb over to Afghanistan, it was to make you think that the focus in that country is to go after some folks who are just too horrible for words because the Afghan government just cannot do what? Something? Anything? Nothing! And Americans don’t even question the obvious ridiculousness of all of this. Guess what massive bombs cannot do? They cannot protect poppy fields. Only ‘sentinels’ can do that. Remember when Barack Obama claimed that he was exiting all troops from Afghanistan since the war in Afghanistan was at an end and then changed his mind and decided to leave 10,000 troops there? Well, it turns out that he called the plan “Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.” So, again, since the war in Afghanistan ended, then why the necessity to keep even 10,000 U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan?

U.S. Ends Its War in Afghanistan

President Barack Obama has decided to keep nearly 10,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014, but then quickly pull them out over two years.

The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan ended its combat mission Sunday, marking the formal—if not real—end to the longest war in American history.

The new, slimmed-down allied mission, Campbell said, will be called Operation Resolute Support. Back in Washington, the Pentagon said its piece of the new mission will be called Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.

But now, all of a sudden, there is still a war going on in Afghanistan. Why? Because there has to be a name for something that is so filthy and dirty and immoral and disgusting so that it will go over well with the American people. And what do Americans love? Violence, war, death, destruction, fighting, dying, lies, hypocrisy, drugs, especially drugs and guess what Afghanistan has? Drugs! Poppy! Opium! Heroin! Morphine! Codeine!

What is opium?

Opium is a substance that is derived by collecting and later drying the milky juice that comes from the seed pods of the poppy plant. The primary component of opium is 12% morphine which is an alkaloid that is often processed chemically to produce illegal drugs such as heroin. Codeine and other non-narcotic alkaloids are also found in the latex that is derived from the opium poppy plant.

Yeah! Let’s call what we are doing in Afghanistan, a war. Yeah! That sounds great. We are fighting a war against a most horrifying enemy. And folks, that enemy has several different names we’ve given it; The Taliban, ISIS, Ali baba and his forty thieves, The Infidel Hater’s Club, it don’t really matter what we call them, the American people love war. Hell! The cannon fodder don’t kick up a fuss one bit, they just head for the airfield, and overseas they go! Dumb schmucks!”

But what’s really going on folks is that the government has always been the biggest drug cartel on this planet. Oh, we see documentaries on the Mexican and Columbian drug cartels and such like, but that’s just the U.S. government’s competition. They’re small fry compared to what the government officials make off peddling opioids in every form. When the heroin addicts are so-called ‘in recovery’, what do you think the government hands them? Why, another opioid, of course, ‘methadone’.

Now, what is methadone?

Methadone is an opioid medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic.

So, to get an opioid addict off opioids, the answer is to give him/her more opioids? And only the government is allowed to give out methadone. The ‘former’ heroin addicts line up at the methadone clinic to get their daily dose of another opioid to combat the withdrawal symptoms of an opioid. How does that work? Who wins? Certainly not the addict. Is the picture becoming clear to you yet? Are you still left wondering why the U.S. government is hell bent on ‘pretend’ bombing its way across Afghanistan even after it has been stated that the war is over? Are you still wondering why ‘Operation Freedom’s Sentinel’ was born? What does a sentinel do? It stands guard over something. And what is there to stand guard over in Afghanistan? Caves? Camels? Hell no! Poppy fields, is the answer! Opium! Morphine! Heroin! Methadone! The ‘Mother Lode’! You can bet your candy ass that the Mother Of All Bombs was dropped nowhere near a poppy field. Trump would have had the MOAB dropped on your sons first because your stupid sons just don’t matter. But never will he ever drop a bomb on those poppy fields because the poppy is precious. Your sons? Not at all!

And when you view another commercial about how serious they are taking this opioid epidemic, you’d best laugh because to them, it is a joking matter. That drug; that poppy plant over in Afghanistan is making some folks extremely rich. But what it’s doing to America’s sons and daughters is no laughing matter. Your government has declared actual war, not on the Taliban in Afghanistan, but on your ass; twice over. In Afghanistan, in the form of U.S. soldiers getting deployed and dying for nothing and here in America by enabling you to fill that prescription for some opioids and now that so many people are overdosing and this fact cannot be shielded from the public any longer, they’ve now decided to pretend that there is some concern over this epidemic of overdoses of ‘white’ folks all across America. But know this, if they were really concerned about the opioid epidemic, U.S. soldiers would have been pulled completely out of Afghanistan and Trump would not be contemplating how many U.S. soldiers he’d like to send into Afghanistan. We’re fighting the Taliban? Sure, we are! And if you are stupid enough to believe that load of horseshit, then I’ve got a bridge in London I’m selling dirt cheap!

Friendly Fire In Afghanistan

 

Was it ‘friendly fire’ or the MOAB(Mother Of All Bombs)that killed two service men in Afghanistan?

Friendly fire may have killed 2 Army Rangers in AfghanistanThe Defense Department on Friday released the names of two Army Rangers who died during a raid on a compound in Afghanistan on Thursday.

Sgt. Joshua P. Rodgers, 22, and Sgt. Cameron H. Thomas, 23, were killed by small arms fire during an operation targeting the emir of the Afghan branch of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) in Nangarhar province, the Pentagon said.

The Pentagon is investigating whether the soldiers died as a result of friendly fire.

Excuse me, but why is the U.S. military even in Afghanistan? What useful purpose is being served there? What is our business with Afghanistan? And what the hell is ‘friendly fire’?

So many questions, but are there any answers that sound truthful. We have heard that the U.S. is in Afghanistan because of 9/11 saying that Osama bin Laden, my darling, was the mastermind behind 9/11. So, if bin Laden was killed in Pakistan, why is the U.S. military still bombing Afghanistan over a decade later? And why are we concerned that, and this is according to the Pentagon, Afghan soldiers cannot contain the Taliban? The Taliban is not here in America and so what business is it of ours if the Afghan government is having some problems with some folks in their own country? We are having problems with homegrown terrorists here in America, namely skinhead groups and such like but we would not stand for Afghanistan to send soldiers over here to ‘take care of our terrorist problem’ and we all know this. They can spin the hell out of the truth, but the truth of the matter is the U.S. military is in Afghanistan to protect those poppy plants to make sure that opioids make it to the U.S. since opium is big business here. Our economy is actually propped up by the drug trade. Just ask the big banks that were kept afloat in the 2008 economic meltdown. You didn’t seriously think a paltry little stimulus package bolstered the economy and since we are broke, what taxpayer funds did the government come up with to prop up the banks? With over $16 trillion dollars of U.S. debt floating around out there, how in the hell did the U.S. government come up with the funds to prop up the banks with our so-called tax dollars when we are flat broke and skint?

Aw hell! I’ve not answered one question, I’ve only added more to what I’ve already asked. But maybe in a roundabout way, I did indeed answer the question of what the hell the U.S. military is still doing in Afghanistan and why we are dropping the MOAB and reading about U.S. soldiers getting killed via ‘friendly fire’, the kind of fire power that you, apparently, shouldn’t mind dying by since a ‘friend’ filled your ass with lead unlike if it was someone you didn’t know. It’s kind of like that ‘collateral damage’ thing whereas you get yourself unintentionally killed because you just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and you find yourself dead, but died knowing that you weren’t meant to be dead, it was all just accidental like. Damn! Shit happens, ya know.

What we have here is yet another Vietnam; an unwinnable war. We are sending our young people into yet another quagmire that is just an endless assembly line leading to death; both of soldiers abroad and of citizens in the homeland thanks to opioid addiction which is the real and true reason our soldiers are in Afghanistan. There is nothing honorable about what we are fighting for in Afghanistan. We are not attempting to aid the Afghan forces in their conquering of the Taliban. Those lies are as transparent as glass. If there was nothing to be gained, we would not even know that Afghanistan exists. We’re not over in Haiti, are we? There’s nothing to be pillaged and stolen from Haiti because since the last hurricane and the subsequent fundraising that was done on a massive scale and was promptly consigned to the coffers of The Clinton Foundation, Haiti has largely been forgotten. But not so much Afghanistan.

And just as with what is going down in North Korea, Trump is not concerned about nuclear bombs in North Korea, the concern is geopolitical and that is why China has amassed troops at the border and so has Russia. It is all about ‘the pivot to Asia’ and whoever controls the Korean Peninsular has great influence in that area, hence why all sides are attempting to negotiate a way out of the North Korean dilemma. So once more, U.S. military personnel and aircraft carriers are sitting at the ready to make sure that America does not lose out on the vast untapped resource that is Southeast Asia. The United States is defunct. The dollar is being abandoned, worldwide and the U.S. is no longer being regarded as top dog, just A dog. There is no world power left that is respectful of the U.S. That ship has sailed and the behind the scenes puppet masters that control the U.S. government are well aware of this and there is no longer any pretense that we matter. Just look at what happened the other day, Trump just cut taxes on corporations AGAIN while saddling America’s poor with that fallout and more debt; including those in his base who voted most enthusiastically for him. But they are too stupid to even understand the impact that Trump’s tax laws are going to have on them. As long as they think Trump just stands for “Keep minorities in their place,” that is all they care about, for now. But even they will eventually feel the effects of what is coming down the pike.

The global elites are just working themselves around this entire globe sucking the life and resources out of every country they encounter until all is just a barren wasteland because you see, quite honestly, riches don’t make for happiness because if it did, we’d have some happy elites just enjoying being rich but that is not enough for them and since money can only buy things and people, it cannot buy happiness or contentment, it would seem and so boredom sets in and there’s nothing to live for because worms like that don’t love. They don’t care about life and would have no problem with ordering the nuclear annihilation of us all. They’ve made it so that the vast majority of Americans are obese, sick and stupid and unfortunately, this is spreading, worldwide, hence the reason we are sitting somewhere with a needle in our arm but are still believing every word that’s uttered out of the lying mouths of our politicians who are mere stooges for the puppet masters.

But as usual, I digress.

Sgt. Joshua P. Rodgers, 22, and Sgt. Cameron H. Thomas, 23, were killed in action in Afghanistan on April 27, 2017 CloseDefense Department
Rodgers was from Bloomington, Illinois, and Thomas was from Kettering, Ohio. Both were on their third deployments to Afghanistan.

Can you believe that? A 22-year old and a 23-year old are dead and both were on their THIRD deployment to Afghanistan. I just cannot wrap my head around that. So, they left boot camp, was sent into Afghanistan, came home, went back to Afghanistan, came home, went back to Afghanistan and then was killed, presumably, by ‘friendly fire’. Don’t that beat all! They were somewhere where they had no business being in the first place, three times and then was killed by their fellow soldiers. So, who did the Mother Of All Bombs kill? Because if the MOAB did what it was intended to do then why weren’t these two packed and waiting on a plane to carry them back to the states? Because just like in Vietnam, the so-called ‘enemy’ is not so easy to get at. What happens when you are in unfamiliar territory? You are at a distinct disadvantage and all the military equipment you can carry is not going to give you an advantage over people who can navigate the terrain in their sleep while the only thing you can do is remember to duck like you were taught in boot camp, but quite apparently, you cannot duck enough when it’s your own men shooting at you.

And so, our youth will continue to suit up, protect poppy plants, get shot by ‘friendly fire’, drop some more MOABs on Afghanistan and there will be no exit strategy so long as there is one poppy left to be harvested in a field. And we say we care about the serious epidemic of opioid addiction. If we did, then there would be not one U.S. soldier still stationed in Afghanistan, much less dying by ‘friendly fire’ there.
