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!

Real News!

 

President Donald J. Trump stunned Twitter today when he tweeted, “I would like to host Kim Jong Un at Mar-a-Lago soon.” Right on cue, Dennis Rodman tweeted, “Invite me and I will translate for you!” Not to be outdone, Trump tweeted, “No need for you Rodman, I speak Asian!” The staff at Mar-a-Lago has been instructed to ready the Oriental Room for Kim Jong Un. Special instructions have also been given to the chef. Special food items requested by Kim Jong Un include the Mar-a-Lago chef’s version of the Whopper, the Grand Big Mac, the Wendy’s Double Burger and two Sonic styled corn dogs. Kim Jong Un stated that due to sanctions against North Korea, he is unable to acquire these treats and he has always wanted to sample  American fast food. The poor man knows not what he is in for. And after eating these American ‘treats’, war WILL soon follow.

Now this is quite a turnaround from, “Kim Jong Un is a very, very bad hombre and North Korea has got to go ‘boom-boom’,” was Donald Trump’s response when questioned about what he intended to do with North Korea’s rogue leader before heading to a rally in Pennsylvania this past Saturday. Trump told his supporters that North Korea was a very real nuclear threat and that if diplomacy fails, a nuclear confrontation will ensue since all options are on the table. It has been reported that the North Koreans were keeping tabs on Trump’s whereabouts on Saturday via a spy satellite installed in space by the Syrians as the spy satellite was behind the Syrian regime’s victorious offensive against the 59 missile barrage leveled at them by the U.S. military. Only two missiles actually struck close to their targets. All others struck a nearby junkyard containing old Toyota pickup trucks that were discarded by ISIS members.

In other news, officials in Afghanistan changed their initial reports that 94 insurgents had been killed by the MOAB(Mother of All Bombs) to only 2 and that Trump ordered the MOAB to be dropped on camel corrals and chicken coops in the northern province of Nangarhar. Two shepherds; one who was in charge of herding the camels and one who was feeding the chickens were killed. Animal rights watch groups are crying “Fowl!” since this was in clear violation of the “Do Not Bomb Camel Corrals And Chicken Coops Agreement.” The ICC is expected to take the matter up next May. However, no one in Afghanistan is said to be holding their breath that anything will come out of this other than that more MOABs will be dropped on innocent animal targets.

A spokesperson for the Taliban announced that the U.S. military was in violation of its policies to end the drug trade in America by refusing to help them destroy the poppy fields in Afghanistan. The Taliban has accused the U.S. military of lying about its mission in Afghanistan. The Pentagon weighed in on this and was quoted as saying, “We are in no way attempting to stop the flow of opium from Afghanistan. Our mission is to see to it that not one Afghan citizen becomes addicted to opioids and the only way to insure this is to assign U.S military soldiers to guard the poppy plants and to make sure that when they are harvested, they are sent directly to the United States whereupon they will be burned immediately.” Meanwhile, a fierce battle is raging between the Taliban and U.S. soldiers over a Monopoly board game that was destroyed while both were fighting over the poppy fields in Bang-a-tart. A Clue game was flown in from Saudi Arabia in an attempt to get the two sides to forget about the destroyed Monopoly board game and to instead, focus on solving a centuries old crime of “Who shot the butler?”

Meanwhile, on the home front, malls and retails stores have been in the news recently for shuttering their doors by the thousands. The store closures are on pace to set a new record and this phenomenon has been blamed on Amazondotcom. It has been suggested by multiple economists that Amazon is simply stealing sales from brick and mortar stores since there are no poor people in America and rents have been on the decline for decades. However, a new problem has emerged; one that has upset Donald Trump, greatly. GM announced to Trump this morning via Twitter that “Big summer shutdowns loom for US auto plants as sales sputter.” As many of us had heard, Trump took the credit for keeping automakers in the U.S. But now, Trump is accusing GM of trying to make him look bad by claiming that sales are sputtering and plants are going to close for weeks on end this summer. Trump had this to say to GM a few minutes ago. “GM is trying to steal my thunder and I wont have it. Sell those cars!” GM had no further comment in response to Trump’s latest tweet. But a leading economist, Herbert Wreck told Real News that the car sales sputter is not really a sputter since people have been buying their cars on Amazondotcom and that Amazondotcom posted revenue in the billions last quarter on car sales alone. And thanks to Amazondotcom, the American economy is gaining traction and this will counter any suggestions of an upcoming economic downturn.

On another note, Pepsi is in the spotlight again. It would appear that on May Day, there were multiple protests all across the U.S. But in Portland, Oregon where protesters tried their best to mimic Kendall Jenner’s role in a recent Pepsi ad by attempting to hand the cops a can of Pepsi, the reaction that Kendall Jenner received from cops was not quite what happened to the protesters in Portland. One protester, who was dressed just like Jenner, extended a can of Pepsi to a police officer, who just completely ignored the ‘olive branch’ that was extended to him. Upon realizing that the police would not accept a heartfelt gift from the Kendall Jenner lookalike, the protester then threw the can of Pepsi at the police and a riot ensued whereas multiple cans of Pepsi were sent flying towards the police line in front of the protesters. Several people pulled out their smartphones in an attempt to reach Kendall Jenner to beg her to come to the protest and hand a can of Pepsi to the cops since it wasn’t working when others tried to follow her lead. Jenner was unavailable and sent Caitlyn Jenner in her stead. This switch appeared not to go over well with the police either and several arrests were made. Since the police had no idea which holding cell to place Caitlyn Jenner in, Jenner was released after receiving an admonishment from the police to refrain from participating in any future protests. Jenner agreed and left the scene in an unmarked Hummer.

Meanwhile, Pepsi protesters were loaded into police vans and hauled off to jail, charged with inciting a riot by insisting on giving cops Pepsi and for refusing to disburse when ordered to do so and for causing damage to a patrol car and several police uniforms. The protesters are calling on the Pepsi Company to pay their bail and for the damages caused by the Pepsi cans that were used in their attempts to befriend the police by asking them to enjoy a Pepsi with them instead of getting beaten and arrested by them while they were exercising their right to peacefully protest. Apparently, people do not understand that commercials do not reflect reality; especially Pepsi commercials featuring Kendall Jenner. No word as yet on whether or not the protesters bail and damages will be paid for by the Pepsi Company.

In local news, a new and daring act that would rival anything done by daredevil, Evel Knievel, two fools in Baltimore, Maryland hitched a ride on the back of an MTA bus and rode it around town and residents when questioned what they thought of this,  were aghast while others laughed and said, “It’s what I intend to do whenever I don’t have bus fare.” A police spokesperson weighed in stating, “We are still looking for these two and when we find them, they will be charged with being stupid, it carries a fine of $20.00 and two months probation. This should discourage others from attempting this foolish stunt.”

And so that, folks, is the ‘Real News’ for today. Stay tuned for upcoming segments of ‘Real News’ brought to you weekly.

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.

War, The Birth Of Death!

I was born old with the sounds of war
roaring through my head
and of scenes depicting
the fact that I am dead.

I am as old as war,
never to know peace
only sorrow, pain
and a cease fire that will not cease.

Brought forth in death
by man’s insatiable desire
to kill for profit and for pain
and war is my sire.

Though I may not have lines
or wrinkles on my forehead
nevertheless, I am old,
too old to live and so I die, instead.

War, the birth of death;
 for youth is drained and tired
but must fight to die;
as war’s bitter taste is acquired.

And so it goes, our children are born but why? They are born, dead for their bodies are mere pawns in wars, moved here and there on the chessboard of war, driven to war by war hawks and warmongers whose children grow rich and fat off the sacrifices of our children who are bred for their wars. We willingly give our children to be adopted by the warmongers and then we host parades praising them for taking our children and making them dead and/or old beyond their years. The voices in their heads, never leaving them even if they leave the battlefield and if they come back to us, it is in name only, for they are already dead since war is the birth of death.

An Ice Cream Truck

Just before the sun went down,
I heard the jingle from an ice cream truck.
Here, it is business as usual,
but in Afghanistan, a bomb just struck.

Tomorrow, the ice cream truck
will make its way down my tree-lined street.
But over in bomb-struck Syria,
little children have no bread to eat.

The next day, the ice cream truck
will once again offer cold, creamy treats
while we wait to hear from Donald Trump
about North Korea via his stupid tweets.

Another day, another ice cream truck;
an absurdity in a world at war.
 It would seem to be quite laughable,
but I just cry til I can’t no more.

I’d send you an ice cream truck,
if I thought it would do you any good,
but when you’re fleeing a war torn land
there’s only debris where homes once stood.

One day, that ice cream truck
will drive down my street no more.
We’ll have killed those across the sea
and on our own, we will then wage war.

That day will surely come,
since war is all we know.
And though we killed you first,
where you went, we too shall go.

So to those who lust for war,
and who gloat over all we’ve killed,
the treats in an ice cream truck
are not as cold as your heart so chilled.

At around 8:00pm, the ice cream truck jingles its way down my street and I look out down the street and the children are gathering in front of it with their money in hand which they exchange for cold, creamy treats. I cannot help but think of the children in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Yemen who have been killed by bombs dropped on them by our government via the U.S. military. I cannot wrap my head around the fact that soldiers, who have children, can send missiles to foreign lands knowing that there is no way to hit only fixed targets since we all know that ‘collateral damage’ is inevitable in military operations and that they are killing children while expecting only ‘ice cream truck’ experiences for their own. Their children are never to be ‘collateral damage’, otherwise known as the unintended casualties of war. I am sure that the ‘unintended casualties’ of war are most glad to know that they were mortally wounded, accidental like by America’s soldiers who want only ice cream truck encounters for their children. I am sure that those who were blown to bits died knowing that they were just in the way; in the wrong place at the wrong time. There will be no ice cream truck rolling down the street offering them cold, creamy treats; just body bags for those who are more than just bits and pieces.

But here in America, the ice cream trucks are still rolling down our streets, inviting our children to come and pick their favorite cold treat and go happily back to their yards to play while those in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Yemen are praying that the bombing will stop, wishing that they still had homes to go to, trying to remember what it felt like to play and certainly are not hearing the jingle of an ice cream truck as it makes its way down a tree-lined street on a quiet evening inviting them to partake of its cold delights.

I am going to keep this one civil even though I am seething and ready to spontaneously combust over the fact that all is quiet here and there is only the echo of the jingle from an ice cream truck and I cannot know or appreciate the hell that those in foreign lands are being put through thanks to those who are hell bent on making it a fact that this world will never know peace. Oh, the absurdity of an ice cream truck!

Donald Trump, “Sarah Palin To Be Secretary of State!”

palin-and-trump

 

 

At an impromptu press conference held at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan yesterday, president-elect Donald Trump dropped a bomb with his announcement that the former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin is his pick for Secretary of State. When describing her qualifications for this position, Trump had this to say, “As you all know, I am trying to repair America’s relationship with Russia and who better to get the ball rolling in that regard than Sarah Palin who actually golfed with Vladimir Putin from the governor’s mansion in Alaska. Sarah has told me all about the many times she looked across the pond that separates Russia from Alaska and saw Putin playing golf on the front lawn of his estate. She told me that they developed a certain rapport whenever the ball went into the hole, Sarah, here would call, ‘Love 15!’ and Putin, upon hearing this would answer back, ‘Love 30!’. The two would then wave one final time at each other before disappearing inside their respective mansions. Who better to get America’s relationship back on track with Russia than Sarah Palin who is already fondly perceived by the Russian president? And before you get started on the fact that Sarah Palin has no experience for this position, remember that I am not completely stupid. I did give Sarah a test and she passed with flying colors. I asked her to find Alaska on the map and she pointed to it easily enough. She actually pointed to New Zealand but she explained to me that if I fly from New Zealand by way of Amsterdam, I would arrive in Alaska by 6pm eastern standard time if I depart at 4pm New Zealand Kiwi fruit time. I must say, I am quite floored by Sarah’s abilities and I think she has gotten a raw deal in the past by the press. And so without further ado, I shall hand the microphone over to my new Secretary of State, Sarah Palin! A round of applause, please!”

“Thank you! Thank you Donald! I am underwhelmed and I promise to do a wonderful job as Secretary of State, but to be fair, if Hillary Clinton and John Kerry can do it, I see no reason why I cannot. I think that I am more qualified than those two. They are responsible for the current hostile climate between the Soviet Union and Russia. I am so glad that Hillary is not the president, she never liked me anyway, and that John Kerry person is going to have to relinquish the Secretary of State jet to me. He, with his long face did not go well in a such a wonderful mode of transportation, nor has he exhibited one clue as to how to reign in those pesky insurgents that have been relentlessly fighting our own terrorists in the Middle Eastern country of Berlin. When I am Secretary of State, I promise to get everyone in Stockholm at the table and make them understand that they will no longer get away with harboring those Yemini terrorists that they think we don’t know about. I was watching a documentary the other day on the Discovery Channel and you would not believe how many terrorists are hiding out in  the Swiss Alps. Why, there were twenty-two female terrorists participating in some sort of ritual, kneeling by a creek and rinsing their hair and toweling it dry and I said right then and there, ‘look at that, they are attempting to fool everyone into thinking that they are merely washing their hair when we all know that they are the wives of ISIS members’.”

“I have already been in contact with the UN and I let them know that we will get NATO forces together and prepare to bomb Berlin from France and we will be successful in removing the command center for terrorists in that country. I am going to put ISIS on the run, for good. I am going to make you proud of me Donald. You are going to be so proud of me that when you win a second term, you will want me to continue on as your Secretary of State! Take that Hillary ‘has been’ Clinton!”

“Next week, I am scheduled to fly to Iraq and once I land in Iraq’s major city, Aleppo, I will drill our troops there and get to the bottom of why Iraq is still a hotbed of terrorism. We will brainstorm and find a way to get Toyota to stop doing business with IS and then since those terrorists will have nothing to drive once Toyota stops supplying them with pickup trucks, we shall bring peace and prosperity back to that region. I shall also call on Saddam Hussein to step back in as the leader especially seeing as how Pakistan was doing wonderfully when he was the dictator there. Those CheeseKurds, Soonistas and Sheisties will soon know who’s boss. And if Hillary hadn’t killed Ghaddaddy, Libya would not see me, but I must do what I must do and Libya will be my next stop because I must find a way to run the rebels out and return Libya to Ghaddaddy’s son, Alibaba. It is too bad that he has forty thieves in his regime, but there are going to be some bad guys and sometimes, it takes one bad guy to get to the other bad guys and we must depend on a bad guy at times to make sure that the other bad guys don’t get out of control. So, Alibaba and his forty thieves will run Libya. I have almost achieved world peace because Putin has already assured me that he is returning Ukraine back to Crimea and he has also agreed to allow Petroclevoceous, the former ruler of Spain to return and guide the Slovakian people back to Yugoslavia.”

“So, gentlemen of the press, my new outfits are being prepared as I speak to you and just as soon as they are all ready for me, I shall be on my first world peace mission. And Donald, thank you ever so much for giving me this opportunity to prove that I have more than just air between my ears! Suck on a lemon Hillary!”

Choir Boys Were Killed In Dallas By A Demented Ex-Soldier……

KKKops

 

….so says Barack Obama.

“The demented individual who carried out those attacks in Dallas, he’s no more representative of African Americans than the shooter in Charleston was representative of white Americans.”

Oh, but that is where you are wrong Obama. The so-called ‘demented’ individual, Mr. Micah Xavier Johnson just could not have been ‘demented’ because after all, he was given a clean bill of both mental health and physical health by the U.S. military since he had been deemed fit enough to be deployed to the killing fields of Afghanistan or was he simply over there protecting the poppy plants that when harvested will be given a free flight straight to the United States and into the mouths and arms of the opioid drug addicted Americans, especially ‘white’ AmeriKKKans?

All of a sudden, this man who had served in the U.S. military is now ‘demented’ when he was, apparently, not demented enough to be rejected from serving in the military. The article goes on to state that Micah Xavier Johnson killed fellow veterans seeing as how four of the five KKKops who got wacked had served in the military. Wow! And they came straight from warzones with the killing fever and immediately joined the police force which enabled them to continue to gun down people even though they can do that in their spare time since they obviously have access to weapons by virtue of their military clearance since they’ve been cleared of having mental disorders that would deem them too ‘demented’ to purchase weapons. So, what Obama said does not even make any sense. Who is writing his speeches for him? Fire him!

But the good part is that according to Obama, Micah Xavier Johnson does not represent African-Americans. He has that part right because Micah Xavier Johnson was not an African-American, he was an American citizen. He was not born in Africa and immigrated to America and acquired American citizenship after having taken some citizenship test,  he was born in AmeriKKKa! Micah Xavier Johnson is representative of descendants of slaves who are fed the fuck up with seeing their numbers declining daily simply because their ancestors were dragged over here and they are the result of slavery. Oh, yes! Many of us are just as fed up as Micah Xavier Johnson was, now you think on that Obama!

And as for Dylann Storm Roof, that piece of white shit that murdered those nine Black people while they were holding Bible study in a church in Charleston, SC on June 17, 2015, he is most definitely representative of his group, the Ku Klux Klan, The Aryan Brotherhood and other skinhead groups that are endemic to this shithole. This shithole was founded by so-called ‘white supremacists’ who deemed any other group to be inferior and therefore, incapable of displaying human qualities and who were then relegated to three-fifths human status and were enslaved or rounded up and placed on reservations. And the very same continues to this very day. How does it not? Black people are enslaved in for-profit prisons by the millions and if they do not make it inside the actual prison, they are shot dead before they can be handcuffed and escorted there. And where are the Indians? Why, they are for the most part, still living in abject poverty on reservations all across this shithole and no one even mentions their plight. So, tell me, what the fuck has changed in over 400 years? I’ll tell you. Not a goddamn thing.

But coonhead Obama wants to get up there and declare who is not representative of what when he is not even representative of Black people in this shithole. He has never once stood up and did a goddamn thing about a goddamn thing that pertains to racism, police brutality, discrimination, bigotry, unfair housing practices, the school-to-prison pipeline, mass homelessness, poverty, wage stagnation, the high unemployment rate of Black men and income inequality, but he wants to mouth off about what is and is not representative of what the fuck?

And oh yes, I did mention ‘choir boys’ did I not? Indeed I did. The article also states that one of the wacked officers routinely gave out department stickers to children at his church. Again, WOW! That was just so thoughtful and considerate of him. Now, after signing up to shoot people and rob them of their money, erroneously, because that is what is happening when KKKops pull people over for bullshit reasons and cite them for a seatbelt violation which means that they must pay a fine, they are not looking out for the welfare of the driver, they are merely looking out for their own wallets because you have no idea how much money the corrupt criminal justice system makes off fining people for victimless ‘crimes’ and minor traffic offenses, this ‘choir boy can be found handing out department stickers to the little children in his church. How nice.

The criminal justice system is a multi-billion dollar business and I suppose no one has wondered why we never hear KKKops talk about a KKKops lousy ass salary anymore. Oh, they don’t need a salary; that ‘job’ comes with too many other perks and benefits like taking guns from suspects and selling them on the Black market or how about absconding with drug money from busting drug dealers. Do you honestly think that all the drug money that police take from drug deals they interrupt ever gets placed on a shelf in the evidence room? Ha! You dumb ass sucker, you! The corruption that is the very essence of what IS the criminal justice system of today, puts the mafia to the blush…AND…out-of-business.

Here in Menacesnowta alone, a gang-task force was assembled to handle the gang situation here and turns out, the gang-task force was more corrupt than the gangs it was assigned to disperse and the gang-task force had to be shut down and the public actually recovered damages. Yes indeed, our dear choir boys in blue who hand out department stickers to children in church are the salt of the earth, doncha know. No, you don’t know because they are not! So, for those of you who sincerely believe that KKKops are choir boys who do their duty of ‘protect and serve’ and then hand out department stickers to little children in church, one of these days, you will be in for a rude awakening because these choir boys are going to show you their true colors; the color of racism, corruption, murder and greed and guess what? They are indeed, representative of ‘white’ AmeriKKKa, and that means, YOU, the lovers of these choir boys; the Ku Klux Klan, The Aryan Brotherhood and all your brothers that make up skinhead hate groups all across this shithole called, AmeriKKKa who after coming back from the killing fields in the Middle East, take that same mindset onto the streets of every shitty city in this shithole! Now, suck on that!

Now Repeat After Me! “Black Lives Matter!” Once Again, “Black Lives Matter!” Now, Get Real!

black lives matter

Black lives matter!
Keep telling yourself that lie
and that it’s just a matter of time
 before you get your piece of the pie.

Black lives matter!
 Blacks are why the morgues are full.
 and why the jails are overcrowded.
That Black lives matter shit is bull!

Black lives matter!
It’s why you’re holding up a sign
because Freddie Gray is dead.
They broke that Black man’s spine.

Black lives matter!
This is what you must make known.
You want them to understand
that you can’t help your Black skin tone.

Black lives matter!
But how can you be so sure?
 It would seem that Black must be a disease.
And that death is the only cure.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

Over 2.3 million men in America are in prison — about half for drug crimes. Seventy percent of all men imprisoned are black or Hispanic. Thirty years ago, before the “War on Drugs” was implemented, there were only 300,000 people in the American prison system.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

Homelessness has become an especially serious problem in the African-American community, with Blacks making up half of the nation’s homeless community, according to a report by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, African-Americans disproportionately represent 47 percent of homeless people, although they make up only 12 percent of the general population.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

You really can get pulled over for driving while black, federal statistics show

A black driver is about 31 percent more likely to be pulled over than a white driver, or about 23 percent more likely than a Hispanic driver. “Driving while black” is, indeed, a measurable phenomenon.

Yes indeed, Black lives matter!

The ACLU is committed to challenging the “school-to-prison pipeline,” a disturbing national trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Many of these children have learning disabilities or histories of poverty, abuse, or neglect, and would benefit from additional educational and counseling services. Instead, they are isolated, punished, and pushed out.

“Zero-tolerance” policies criminalize minor infractions of school rules, while cops in schools lead to students being criminalized for behavior that should be handled inside the school. Students of color are especially vulnerable to push-out trends and the discriminatory application of discipline.

So, as you can clearly see, Black lives matter! BLACK LIVES MATTER, keep up the good work, #Blacklivesmatter! Because whatever you’re doing, it is crystal clear that it IS working! Hell! Where do I sign up????!!!!!

Now, here is another reason to join #BLACKLIVESMATTER!

Minn. cop fatally shoots black man during traffic stop, aftermath broadcast on Facebook

A Minnesota traffic stop turned deadly Wednesday evening when a police officer opened fire on a black driver and killed him — less than 48 hours after another fatal police shooting in Louisiana.

Philando Castile, 32, died at a Minneapolis hospital.

Word is that he died because of a broken taillight, but the reality is he died because BLACKLIVESMATTER at the morgue! Just ask the coroner in every shitty ass city in this shithole!

Philando Castile is dead, not because his vehicle’s taillight was out, Philando Castile is dead because he was “driving while Black” and that is against the law as is every goddamn thing a Black person does in bloody ass racist AmeriKKKa!

Once AGAIN!, for the motherfuckers that are slow or otherwise, dumb as all hell, Black folks would not be in AmeriKKKa if your ancestors hadn’t been some lazy ass motherfuckers who had NO goddamn work ethic whatsoever who produced the very same in you because if you were any different from your slave owning ancestors, would we continue to see this shit play out? Yeah! Look in the mirror and answer that question! I dare you!

And just how many of us Black folks were out looking at fireworks on the 4th of July? Raise your hands. My hand is raised because that is exactly what the fuck I was doing. Was I standing in the middle of the street with my lame ass, dusty ass, fifty year old protest sign just getting arrested and some mo shit for blocking traffic every single damn time bail is posted? Fuck no! I was too busy enjoying the fireworks and when I’m not enjoying the fireworks, I’m out pumping gas into my car and aiding and abetting oil wars in the Middle East. I am sitting up in a movie theater watching “Independence Day Part 62” and some more shit! I am out there doing my part to make sure that I am part of the problem, not part of the solution.

I refuse to get up off my ass and fuck shit up! I refuse to even attempt to make a difference in the lives of those who look like me that’s getting planted, daily! I refuse to do anything but pen some goddamn kindergarten poetry and then I get up and out the door to pursue my pleasure, I go.  I am out shopping for clothes for road trips and shit! I am cussing and carrying on when someone parks their vehicle too close to mine but do I cuss and carry on out in the middle of the street over KKKop killings of those who look like me? Fuck no! I am apathetic and complacent over THAT shit! What’s that got to do with me? I ain’t been pulled over. Not yet! But I sure as hell expect someone to moan and wring their hands and gnash their teeth when I get pulled over and shot for having a broken taillight, but quite actually, I would have gotten pulled over for “driving while Black!”

Goddamn it! Ain’t we just having fun? Poor, poor Alton Sterling, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. And poor, poor Philando Castile, same goes for him; wrong place, wrong time. And Freddie Gray? Same thing! Sandra Bland? Yep! Tamir Rice? Indeed! We had ALL better hope that we ain’t never at the wrong place at the wrong time, ’cause the party WILL be over! No fireworks, no movies, no shopping, no  champagne brunches; none of that shit! Yeah! Life is good, ’til it ain’t! 

Put Down Those Weapons Of War!

weapons of war

You may be able to kill the messenger,
but his message will live on.
When the masses finally awaken,
there will be a brand new dawn.

For some, hope has all but fled.
They see no way to win.
Victory looks too far away
and fear is in the hearts of men.

Throw off your yoke of oppression.
Those who keep you towing the line
are the ones who send you off to war
while they sit back and wine and dine.

Take a minute and ask yourself,
“What the hell am I fighting for?”
Now, look into your baby’s eyes
and put down those weapons of war!

If you cannot kill your daughter or your son, then how can you kill someone elses? The same love and pride that you feel when you look at your own children, another mother and father across the seas is looking at their children in the exact same way. They just speak a different language when they tell their children how much they love them. Killing someone elses child should be just like killing your own. You couldn’t do it! Again, let the warhawks and the warmongers fight their own battles. You have no dog in that fight!

Hillary Clinton’s Theme Song!

Hillary battles the devil theme song

The devil called to Hillary and said, “Come home my dear to me!”
Ole Hillary answered back, “I didn’t sell my soul to thee!”

 

That devil, he was fired up for no one should call his bluff.
Hillary had sold her soul to him and he knew she liked it rough.

He threw ole Hillary across his back and took her down to hell.
But he was no match for Hillary, she put him under her spell.

She called Lockheed and she called Boeing, her personal munitions teams.
And now if you listen real close, you can hear the devil’s screams.

She launched her drones and fired her missiles and attacked hell’s vaulted gates.
And now the Christians can’t burn in hell, Hillary destroyed its fiery lakes.

“Where to now?,” Hillary asks of her rich and rowdy friends.
And don’t hold back, I’ll shit myself, that’s why I wear depends.”

“We’ve bombed hell and destroyed Iraq and Libya is up in flames.”
“We’ve killed Gaddafi, hanged Hussein, so let’s add more to those names!”

“We’re running out of land to grab and leaders to kill for sport!”
“Let’s turn on our own and show them whose boss, a mission we won’t abort!”

“I’ll soon be the man in a DC house, I’m a madman, doncha know?”
“America, bend your ass over, you’re now my goddamn ho!”

Hillary requested that her theme song be written by,

Shelby I. Courtland (and I was quite happy to do it! P.S. You’re welcome Hillary!!!)

So, since I am privy to the inner sanctum of Hillary Clinton, I know what that warmonger has in store for AmeriKKKa and even without being privy to the inner sanctum of Hillary Clinton, you should know as well! And for those of you who are thinking of turning to Hillary Clinton when Bernie Sanders concedes to her, I would rebel and refuse to get behind this warmonger. If you must vote, write-in a third party candidate or at the very least you could write your own name in. Better that than that warmonger. I do understand that the only other alternative seems to be Frump, but hey! We are still here even AFTER Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II and Obama, so hey! We will deal with it! Did we like it and will we like it? Hell no! But we should have done something about this long before it reached this point and so who do we have to blame for it? Something to ponder.
