While Poverty Soars, Trillions Spent On Wars In Iraq And Afghanistan Wasted While The Amerikkkan People Are Lied To

Millions of Americans know poverty only too well and yet there are, presumably, states where poverty is more problematic than others. I am quite sure that many would beg to differ.

15 states where poverty is worse than you might think

Developed in 1963, the official poverty rate is based on pre-tax income thresholds related to the cost of a minimum food diet and the number of individuals who depend on that income.
That is unbelievable! The ‘official poverty’ rate based on pre-tax? What the hell??!!! After deductions is what tells the true story, not some before taxes bullshit. None of my paychecks have ever looked good before or after taxes and other deductions and what was there to show for those taxes? Wars! Wars and more wars!
And so we come to this!

Confidential documents reveal U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan

Senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.

“We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,” Douglas Lute, a three-star Army general who served as the White House’s Afghan war czar during the Bush and Obama administrations, told government interviewers in 2015. He added: “What are we trying to do here? We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking.”

What was the pretext for the war in Afghanistan?

The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001, supported by close US allies. The conflict is also known as the US war in Afghanistan. Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda, and to deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.

Again, America cannot win a war! It does not matter how much military equipment is sent to a warzone, the fact should be clear to ALL by now, that America’s military ain’t shit! And if you don’t believe that, then keep reading.

“If the American people knew the magnitude of this dysfunction . . . 2,400 lives lost,” Lute added, blaming the deaths of U.S. military personnel on bureaucratic breakdowns among Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department. “Who will say this was in vain?”

Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.

“If the American people knew of the magnitude of this dysfunction…2,400 lives lost.” And for what???!!!

The sad part is that Americans are so far removed from wars that we just don’t care. We don’t care that supposedly, healthy specimens of individuals were suited up and sent overseas to fight who or whom and how and why? No one had a clue. And it was most definitely in vain that over 2,400 lost their lives and my guess would be that the numbers are even higher since it is quite obvious that we cannot believe one lying word out of the mouths of our politicians aka warmongers and war hawks and those would include BARACK OBAMA, GEORGE W. BUSH, GEORGE H.W. BUSH and the current reigning lunatic-in-chief, DONALD TRUMP.

Thousands upon thousands of Americans who suited up and who were sent to war zones, made it back and are now wounded and are trying to receive the dubious services of the Veterans Administration and we all know that ANY services received from the Veterans Administration is a joke; just a not so very funny joke since it has been reported that those wounded soldiers who made it back from overseas deployment and who had damn near lost their minds and were suicidal were put on hold by the Veterans Administration when they called seeking help.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold Please!”

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.

And surprise! Surprise! The original article was taken down and cannot be found online. Go figure! Can’t have the dirty secrets bandied about that America couldn’t give two flying turds about those whom we absentmindedly “Thank for their service.” What the hell does that do for someone who supposedly “put their life on the line” for this worthless ass shithole? Can it feed them? Can it house them? Can it give them the medical/psychological care they need? Can it pay their fucking bills?

But to know that it was ALL for nothing is what the troops who were sent over to Afghanistan are saying. There was no plan. There was no blueprint. There was no exit strategy. We were fed bald-faced lies by ALL presidents that had anything to do with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and so that also means that whatever we have been told about Libya, Syria, Yemen are also lies, lies, lies and damn lies! Trump even supposedly dropped the MOAB(Mother of all bombs) in Afghanistan and what the fuck did that do? Not a goddamn thing but kill two Afghan camel herders and take money from social programs that are sorely needed seeing as how we are experiencing poverty that’s worse than what was experienced during the first Great Depression because make no mistake, we are in a Worse Depression what with the emergence of Third World diseases in this so-called ‘First World’ nation whereas abject poverty and opulence sit side by side, where tent cities are right in the midst of new construction for luxury high rise condos in Los Angeles, but over in Las Vegas, the homeless are living in tunnels. Coming into Chicago, all you see are tents lined up; endless rows of tents. The same in Baltimore and in any and every city in Amerikkka.

George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — and their military commanders have been unable to deliver on their promises to prevail in Afghanistan. U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation. 

What? Wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” So that they could what? Open a Starbucks? Open a Walmart? Open a Popeye’s Chicken shack? Open a Target? Are they fucking serious? This shithole is collapsing what with an infrastructure that is so damn old that bridges are collapsing, pipes that run water to homes are in pieces. Sinkholes are swallowing up blocks of cars. Entire cities look like war zones. Just go to damn near every state and you’ll find rows of abandoned, falling down buildings, downtown areas that have been abandoned; just row upon row of dilapidated buildings and those assholes wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” The Amerikkkan people are stupid as hell. There you sit with your dumb, fat ass glued to a chair while staring down at a phone that is your whole life while your paycheck is being deducted for shit because “attempting to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation” is not why we are paying taxes. That is not why we have payroll deductions. And yet, all we hear from so-called politicians is that we have no fucking money to help our own citizens who are sitting all up in tents trying to cure their typhus and hookworm. Seriously??!!! What.the.fuck.

“What did we get for this $1 trillion effort? Was it worth $1 trillion?” Jeffrey Eggers, a retired Navy SEAL and White House staffer for Bush and Obama, told government interviewers. He added, “After the killing of Osama bin Laden, I said that Osama was probably laughing in his watery grave considering how much we have spent on Afghanistan.”

Yeah! What did we get for over $1 trillion? And we cannot even believe the bullshit that the U.S. government put out about Osama bin Laden since I read that the man had long since died from kidney failure long before Seal Team 6 arrived on the scene. If Osama bin Laden was deep sixed, then I’ve got a bridge for sale in London.

Keep believing the bullshit! Keep buying the lies and you will continue to look around for somewhere to put up a tent and then find yourself locked up thanks to vagrancy laws being put on the books in every city in this fucking shithole because they got nothing but wars and wars and they don’t even have a clue why the fuck there is a war and what to do in a war or how to exit a war of choice. If veterans cannot even get housed and are dying on the streets, what the hell do you think is going to happen to the rest of us? But go right ahead with your head glued to that phone. I hope your tent comes with a USB port and some electricity. Otherwise, the jail has electricity, but you won’t get to keep your phone while you’re cooling your heels in there after having been swept up in a homeless tent city raid.

Meanwhile, your government has some more lies to tell you about why we are at war in Afghanistan and why U.S. troops are still over in Iraq. By all means, keep believing the shit they spout because you love being lied to.

And so I will leave you with a little poem I wrote for the wannabe soldiers.

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.

You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.

The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become our battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely, throbbing sound.

Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.

Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.

When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.

War is not only just a blessing,
to warmongers, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone could ever strike on cue!

I don’t know why I wrote that poem because you useless, brain dead Amerikkkans will NEVER take what I wrote to heart! More’s the pity and I pity the world!

 

“We Thank You For Your Service And Now Here Are Your Deportation Papers! Git!”

I have been saying over and over again to these foreigners who come here, that they are never more than one foot out the door, if and when this government says so. And it matters not if they so-called “served this worthless ass shithole.

Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq deported to El Salvador

“They basically snuck him out in the middle of the night,” one of the lawyers assisting with the case said.

A Marine combat veteran whose supporters were seeking a pardon from the governor of California was suddenly deported to El Salvador this week, according to advocates and immigration authorities.

Jose Segovia Benitez, 38, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1999-2004 and was deployed to Iraq, was deported to El Salvador on Wednesday, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Jose Segovia Benitez had a criminal record and according to him, he only became a criminal AFTER having signed up to kill people over in Iraq who’d done not a goddamn thing to him, personally. You see, his claim is that he suffered from PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) due to having ‘served in the military’ and was stationed in Iraq and that after his stint in the military, he took to alcohol to cope and soon found himself committing felonies, left and right. What he must have failed to realize is that a condition of him remaining a citizen of this fucked up shithole was that he should be a ‘law abiding’ citizen and not a felon. He became a felon and so his citizenship was revoked, pronto, despite his “service to this country” in killing people in foreign lands even though those particular ‘felonies’ were condoned and co-signed by the U.S. government. If he was engaging in felonies that were considered sanctioned by this fucked up ass, hypocritical U.S. government, Benitez would still be sitting over here in this fucking shithole. But that’s not what he was doing. Some of his convictions include corporal injury to a spouse, for which he received an eight-year sentence, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, narcotics possession, conspiracy to commit a crime and driving under the influence. Benitez’s lawyers claim that he is very remorseful over having committed these crimes but that he was “not in his right mind” when he was committing the crimes which caused him to cease to be a law abiding citizen and turned him into a felon who then became eligible for deportation which is what happened; he was deported. His claim is that he would not have become a criminal if it had not been for the fact that he signed on the dotted line to kill people over in Iraq for the United States government and so that right there should be grounds for the dismissal of his deportation papers. All’s well that ends well. Uh…no..not according to the U.S. government. It is on their terms and their terms only and then your ass is grass.

Also, Mr. Benitez was so patriotic, that he had tattooed on his rib cage a huge depiction of the Statue of Liberty and across one arm, there was a tattoo; “USMC,” which he says will make him a target for gangs in El Salvador. What Mr Benitez failed to understand is that this shithole that granted him citizenship couldn’t give a rat’s ass for what happened to his ass after he left the military and certainly no one is moaning and wailing and gnashing their teeth at the Pentagon over the potential plight of Mr. Benitez in El Salvador. As far as they are concerned, any dealings they had with Mr. Benitez ended when he received his military discharge papers.

Those south of the border, who come here, promptly think that they are just as white and with just as many rights as the whites have given themselves in this shithole, but when they step out-of-line, they find out, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry that their ass ain’t so fucking white because back to El Salvador, Columbia, Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala, your ass will go! You don’t have any fucking rights either, Latinos, Hispanics or whatever the hell you call yourselves. And American descendants of slaves are sitting somewhere wondering why you debased shits shut the fuck up and pretend that you are deaf mutes when you come over here and don’t take up for our Black asses. It is because you know that you are here on sufferance. If the whites look in your direction, you damn near jump out of your skin in fear that they will deport your asses back from whence you came. You would no more speak out against the shit that’s being visited on American descendants of slaves than you would cut off your right arm.

The whites have every damn body over here on lock down and don’t we all fucking know this. Just you ask Jose Segovia Benitez. Oh, that’s right. You can’t. He was deported back to El Salvador, was imprisoned there for a short time and then released. What he is doing now, who the fuck knows and who really gives a shit? As far as the U.S. government via the military is concerned, Mr Benitez is no disabled veteran who is qualified to seek the dubious services of the Veterans Administration. Mr. Benitez is just another worthless, deported felon who was here, illegally and who got what he deserved because he should have been able to deal with the consequences of a military deployment to a war zone. And so now, along with having been deployed, Mr. Benitez has been deported. Deployed? Deported? Shit happens. But that shit has consequences depending on whether it was a military deployment or deportation. I wonder, in hindsight, would Mr. Benitez still have gone and gotten himself deployed to a war zone since his claim is that that deployment is what caused him to lose his mind and subsequently ‘forced’ him to engage in criminal conduct which led to his deportation? We may never know and I don’t even care because it is my belief that Mr. Benitez got what he deserved. Nothing good ever comes from war. And I am quite sure that Mr. Benitez does not think that getting himself deported back to El Salvador with a huge depiction of the Statue of Liberty on his torso and ‘USMC’ tattooed on one arm was a good thing, especially when he encounters gang members who absolutely hate and detest everything that this shithole stands for and with good reason.

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not Bloody Likely!

 

On a blog I posted in April of 2018, titled, “Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors! Read The Comments On This Article And Get A Damn Clue,” a comment posted on that blog made me sit and think for a spell. Below is the comment from qnubian528.

“People who aren’t from America had always see US “the big apple,the land of the thousand opportunities!”
That’s bullshit! What I always understood isn’t country of thousands opportunities,where “inequality” is a host,you can’t call civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare,but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!
Wow America country of thousands opportunities one of the bullshit I’ve ever heard!”

This bears repeating: “civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare, but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!”

That is so indicative of what this fucked up country stands for, it ain’t even funny. And millions do not have access to free healthcare and for those who do have access to healthcare, that healthcare is substandard. Only the rich can get great healthcare. The rest of us are dealing with healthcare that is comparable to what passed for healthcare in 1810 since what the fuck has changed as it relates to healthcare since? More women, especially Black women are dying in childbirth in what is supposed to be a ‘developed’ country than ever before, but in all actuality is more like a third world country. How in the world are people dying from childbirth in America? That makes no sense whatsoever, not unless it is ALL done by design and then it makes perfect sense.

And what about the shit that’s always on the news, the fact that yet another American has gone on a rampage and murdered multiple people and after the fact, law enforcement then finds a stash of assault weapons, multiple rounds of ammunition and enough guns and ammo to kill thousands. Meanwhile, the shooter’s mental health is questioned.

But now it is time to celebrate why hundreds of thousands of Americans have died in so many wars, I’ve lost count. It is time to celebrate the fact that this country loves war. America is in love with war and don’t say that it is not because if America was not in love with war, why then in the year 2019, is this country STILL at war and STILL trying to find some country to be at war with? War is ALL this country has ever known. The first ‘illegal’ colonizers warred with the Indians for this land and that set the standard; if you want something, go to war. If you want someone else’s land, go to war. If you want to build the country on the backs of another continent’s people, battle those people for their people, subdue them and then take the people from that continent. If you want some country’s oil, go to war and kill them and take over their oil. If you want an American company to be able to strip another country of its natural resources, go to war against that country. For whatever contrived reason, this country MUST be at war.

However, I refuse to celebrate war because that is exactly what we are doing when we celebrate Memorial Day. We are honoring, not a need for people to have died in wars, we are honoring the fact that people fought in elective wars. And what does ‘elective’ mean? It means we ‘chose’ to go to war. We did not have to, but because this nation is a nation of warmongers and war hawks, this is why we celebrate war. Don’t hand me that bullshit about how we are honoring our ‘war dead’ since they did not have to die. They did not have to suit up and be sent to foreign shores to die over an elective war; a war of choice. It has been stated that this country has been at war for over 220 of its 242 year history. This is what we are celebrating and believe me, that is nothing to celebrate. You people are sick and twisted who go around celebrating this shit with parades and cookouts and some more shit!

People don’t have free healthcare because our money is being spent on killing people and claiming what’s not ours to claim. We glorify guns and screech about the 2nd Amendment as if that is the only Amendment that’s worth a damn! All other Amendments pale in comparison to the 2nd Amendment especially seeing as how the 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery for if it did, there would not be over 2.3 million Black slaves sitting all up in prisons on bullshit drug charges, slaving away making shit for free to be sold by corporations and quite frankly, the 1st Amendment don’t mean shit either since what the hell is free speech these days when people can be jailed for publishing the fact that this shithole committed untold war crimes and crimes against humanity and free speech is being curtailed even as I type this? If some platform that I use to get my message out has a problem with my message, then my message gets shut down. And we all know that only whites own the platforms that people use to be heard. The news coverage is brought to us by white faces. Those who own the networks are all white. Those who own the newspapers and magazines are all white. Every media platform is owned by whites and whites have long been known for re-writing history to gloss over the vile ass shit they do and they are at it to this very day. And of course, whites are behind the celebrating of war with this Memorial Day celebration bullshit whereas we celebrate people who have died fighting in elective wars by hosting parades, throwing cookouts and watching baseball games. So go to a parade, munch down on a hotdog and then attend a baseball game, but don’t forget to take advantage of all those Memorial Day savings at the few remaining brick and mortar stores or better yet, order some plastic shit on Amazon and demand that it get to you the same fucking day because you’re celebrating war!

This bears repeating! “”Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors!” And I am quite sure that there are thousands of stupid ass Americans who will be lined up at Disneyland and at Disney World to celebrate war! And when Disneyland and Disney World close for the evening, that fake ass Cinderella will drag her tired ass to Motel 6 until her ‘magical’ shift begins the next day. Don’t fucking think about that or about the fact that those workers at Disneyland and Disney World are living like shit! Their lives are certainly not the stuff of dreams, but of nightmares of food insecurity, no healthcare, back breaking work, long hours in the heat and rain, motel living quarters and thankless Disneyland patrons.

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not bloody likely!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get a day off to attend parades, eat hot dogs, drink beer and be thankful over how ‘free’ we are that we can still board an airplane after having been molested and radiated. We are free!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get to sit on our fat asses and forget about all the people who were killed by our sons protecting what? Freedom? We don’t have ANY freedom! Try not going through security to board an airplane and your ass will land in jail so fast, you won’t even have time to collect your wallet. Try protesting longer than your ‘permit’ allows and you’ll find your ass in jail so fast, your head will be spinning. Try lounging around on a sidewalk while homeless and see how free your ass is. You’ll be locked up before you can count to two. Try selling some un-taxed cigarettes on a New York street and if you’re a descendant of slaves, you’ll be choked to death and your killer will walk free. Try being a child descendant of slaves playing in a park with a TOY gun and you’re dead, two seconds after the official slave patrols pull up on you! Try driving down the goddamn street and you’ll end up dead, hanged in a Texas jail because you’re a Black woman. Try going to the hospital because you feel ill and you’re Black-assed, you’ll end up in the morgue. Yeah, wars are fought to protect NO freedoms that we go on and on about since we love the illusion of freedom which is why we love Disneyland and Disney World. We love our illusions! War is for other people to fight! But you’re fine because you’ve got a ticket to Disneyland!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing for the warmongers and war hawks who are in bed with the makers of the war weapons(Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Crew), you know who the warmongers are. They are AmeriKKKa’s politicians; Barack ‘Nobel Peace Prize Insane’ Obadroner, KillarE ‘Whitewater scandal Benghazigate Emailgate Big ass Jockstrap’ Clinton, Bernie “I believe in the drone program” Sanders, Combover “Build A Wall to Keep THOSE Illegals Out, Never mind us pink-assed motherfuckers, Indians? What Indians?” TrumpDump! And who makes the war machine possible? Why, our sons and soon…our daughters because the military generals have said that it is high time women saw some combat action. And guess why women are now necessary for the military. Can’t guess? You’re celebrating WHY! The ‘troops’ are dead, dying and committing suicide from being fucked up in the head after having been deployed too many goddamn times! You don’t get that? No, of course you don’t because all you know is that today gave you an excuse to sit back and indulge in too much alcohol, hot dogs and sun! Burn motherfuckers! Burn! Because one of these days, your turn is coming. So, eat, drink and be merry since you don’t really give a damn for the war dead because if you did, the last thing you would be doing in honor of their memory, is eating, drinking and sitting at a goddamn parade!

And when the troops do make it back to America from having whored themselves out to the warmongers and war hawks and they need some anti-suicide help, where is your ass after you finish sitting at the parade grounds, stuffing your face on hotdogs? You are nowhere to be found to man the suicide hotlines for those fucked up in the head soldiers that make it back.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold, Please!”

The VA, has been swamped with calls since opening in 2007. The volume increased from fewer than 10,000 in 2007 to more than 500,000 last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

A 2010 calculation by the VA estimates that 22 veterans kill themselves each day. The VA, which has not updated that estimate, says the hotline “rescues” 30 veterans from suicide each day.

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

So, the people who are trained to deal with potential suicides handle only one to five calls a day? For real? And after having listened to one suicidal former service member, they are out the door and oh what a great day it is, eh? Then, those who are on backup are sitting somewhere looking cross-eyed for lack of training or know-how in dealing with the ’emotional problems’ that they are hearing from the former servicemen. Go figure!

You sit somewhere on your stupid ass and think that “thank you for your service” gets the job done when you know damn well that a fucked up in the head veteran needs more than your worthless ass ‘thank yous’. What the hell are they supposed to do with a “thank you?” Cure their mental illness with it? House themselves with it? Stop drinking because of it? Take it and use it as a prosthetic? You brain dead, dumb as all hell Americans make me sick with your reasoning that you should always be able to take the easy way out. As long as you don’t have to suit up and kill someone you’ve never met, what’s the big deal? Well the big deal is that this is yet another reason why you are going to pay for this shit. This is why your shit is continuously getting flooded and hit with tornadoes and some more shit because you don’t give a damn about anybody besides your own worthless hide. I am SO very glad that millions of you are sitting somewhere moaning and wailing over the fact that life as you know it has ended. And I am SO very glad that millions more of you are soon to join them and so believe me, you have absolutely nothing to celebrate! I guarantee it! Fuck you and fuck your Memorial Day celebrations! They and you are meaningless!

White Cop Punches White Woman In Her Head On The Beach! Gotta See This!

As long as cops were manhandling Black people, it was okay, but I wonder what the fallout will be over this!

We’re off to a great start for the Memorial Day Weekend, folks! It does not get much better than this; a cop beating a woman in the head for underage drinking.

Emily Weinman 20, of Philadelphia, was on a beach in Wildwood, NJ, celebrating Memorial Day when cops, who apparently, through ESP, sensed that she was underage and had alcohol in close proximity to her, pounced on her and ordered her to take a breathalyzer test, which she passed, but for some reason, the incident escalated to what we see in the video; a white cop beating the shit out of a white female on a beach.

How ironic. When I first started drinking, the age to consume wine and beer was 19 in my state(hard liquor, 21) and believe me, I had jugs of red wine stashed in my closet awaiting my pleasure. I guess the laws are different in different states but at 20, it seems to  me that a person should be able to drink if they are so inclined because after all, the recruitment age for the military is 18.

The federal law that can be manipulated in a case by case basis states that the minimum age for enlistment in the United States military is 17 (with parental consent) and 18 (without parental consent).

In a few hours, it will be Memorial Day, a day we honor those who were killed in service to this country and I am pretty sure that there were those who died at age 18. Why is it that we can die for this country at 18, but we cannot drink until age 21? Americans can be carried home in body bags after having been blown to bits in war and never see age 20, much less 21 and we have no problem with that, but a woman must get her head bashed because she is suspected of drinking on a beach at age 20. Something is really wrong with this just as something is really wrong with nearly everything about this country that we call, America, where young people, as young as 18, are sent off every day to foreign lands to either shoot someone or get shot at and that is perfectly fine, but they’d better not drink on a beach at age 20 because they risk getting exactly what Emily Weinman got, fists pounded into their head and arrested.

If you cannot understand that we have no rights, then something is wrong with you. If you can suit up and protect such as this, is it really worth it? Because when you suit up in that camouflage outfit given to you by the U.S. military, you are aiding and abetting the ‘elites’ who control this country and this world. You, along with cops all across America are making sure that Americans and the rest of the world stay in their place. America’s cops make sure that we don’t get any ideas that we are free in this stolen land just as the U.S. military grunts make sure that the world knows that it is not free from American hegemony.

We are about to celebrate the deaths of so many who died in vain. They died to protect a dying empire that should have died already but because they fill you with patriotic bullshit, you gladly give your lives up for something that doesn’t even exist and never did. America was founded on the blood of dead Indians, built up on the backs of Africa’s people and on Memorial Day, we are to celebrate the continuation of spilled blood, stolen land, terrorism, capitalism, police brutality, war crimes, corruption, lies, depravity, racism and murder. And they have made you ignore all of that by touting patriotism. Patriotism should be displayed for a country that stands for human rights, justice, liberty and freedom for ALL her citizens and that is not America, never America!

America’s flag is drenched in blood, her national anthem honors slavery and her people are castrated, indebted slaves to corporations and subject to brutality at a whim. Tell me, where is the honor in dying for this? There is none!

Millions of people have been murdered because of the color of their skin. Millions are imprisoned because of the color of their skin. Millions are hated because of the color of their skin. Is all of this because America’s founding fathers believed in liberty, justice and freedom for all? All would have included every shade of color from darkest Black to palest pink. But those of the darkest hue were never included in America’s founding documents; The U.S. Constitution, The Bill of Rights. No matter that you can overlook a country so mired in evil and find something to be patriotic about, you are lying to yourself when it comes to the truth about this nation. Wave that flag of hypocrisy. Sing that anthem of slavery and boast about our military’s might, but there are those of us who will look on and think how foolish you are in your willful blindness because we know the truth of what this nation really stands for.

And finally, 20-year old Emily Weinstein, according to America’s laws, had no right to drink an alcoholic beverage on a beach, and the cops were well within their right to try and beat her head in for that, but if she were 18, she would have every right to join the U.S. Military and die in a foreign land. Which is worse? Drinking an alcoholic beverage on a beach at 20 or dying in a foreign land at age 18 because you joined the U.S. Military to protect the mistreatment and murder of millions of people?

Draft Dodger Commander-In-Chief Demands U.S. Military Parade!

 

That is rich, literally! I mean, mostly it was the rich who got out of heading over to Vietnam to get killed or sprayed with Agent Orange while using ‘liquid fire'(napalm) on the innocent Vietnamese.

Now enters Donald Trump, a screaming and a wailing for a massive military parade to honor the U.S. military. So, now that he can no longer get drafted, this draft dodging coward wants to honor the very military that he refused to be drafted into since he claimed four college deferments and one ‘heel spur’ deferment. My! My! My! Yep, mostly it is the idle rich who  could get away with avoiding any kind of ‘unpleasantness’ that might get in the way of their living a lavish lifestyle at the expense of the poor.

How it even makes sense that this draft dodger actually became the Commander-In-Chief of the very military he fought, tooth and nail, to never have to serve in, should just be beyond the realm of understanding on any level. The claim is that Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, witnessed a French military parade and suddenly developed this nostalgic idea. It had to be nostalgia right? I mean, since he almost served, but thanks to four college deferments and a heel spur, he didn’t have to? Right?

The Draft-Dodger-In-Chief did not get hit with a ton of deep, unrelenting shame over the fact that his non-existent heel spur got him out of going to fight in a war for love of country. Oh, no, never that! France was hosting a military parade while Trump looked on and voila! The idea just suddenly popped into Tweet Brain Trump, better known on Twitter as Dim Tweet Trump who, despite the logistics and cost of hosting this type of parade,  is remaining insistent that this military parade should come to pass. The rest of the world should get a clue of how bad ass America’s military is. Newsflash! The rest of the world is very much aware of the U.S. military especially seeing as how there are over 700 military bases stationed all across this planet and Americans are most definitely aware of the U.S. military since we pay ‘mightily’ for that military through our tax dollars to the detriment of our roads and bridges, environment, food and water and safety net programs.

Here’s an idea! Since billionaire, Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, wants a military parade so bad, present him with an estimated bill for this military parade and tell him that he will be responsible for this extravaganza and see how fast his enthusiasm dries up. It will dry up almost as fast as his enthusiasm for love of country dried up upon expecting to receive his draft papers. College was just too good to be true at a time when it was most needed and then when that no longer served its purpose, enter ‘heel spur’. I am quite sure that many poor men who were drafted wished they had known just how easy it would be to get their names erased off the draft list if they had just ‘developed’ a heel spur and so could lie back and enjoy the good life of having some other poor schmuck fill in for them.

What a difference in the treatment Muhammad Ali received when he refused to be drafted. Muhammad Ali was stripped of his world heavyweight title for refusing to join the army in 1967, his boxing license was suspended during his peak years for boxing, he was arrested, convicted by ‘no jury of his peers’, but by an ‘all-white’ jury and jailed for refusing to get drafted based on religious reasons. Muhammad Ali stated that, “The draft is about white people sending Black people to fight yellow people to protect a country they stole from the red people,” and “The real enemy of my people is here (in America). I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people, they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for four hundred years.”

I have much respect for Muhammad Ali for standing up for his beliefs while Donald Trump’s only belief was that he was just too rich and white and important to have his worthless hide sent over to Vietnam to die and for what? Certainly not for love of country by ‘virtue’ of military service because if he ‘loved his country’, no heel spur or college education could have kept him from insisting that he be sent to fight in Vietnam. And yet, this draft dodger, with the most dangerous and deadly disease ever to exist, ‘heel spur’ disease, would go on to eventually become the Commander-In-Chief of the very military that he was scared too shitless to be drafted into. This Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, goes beyond hypocritical when espousing on how much reverence he has for the very military of which he insisted that a heel spur must keep him out of. How in the world can that draft dodger look himself in the mirror if he had one ounce of shame, guilt or embarrassment and yet, he exudes nothing but bravado when speaking of the U.S. military as if it it actually has personal meaning to him.

We should ALL have died  from the sheer shame of it, the shame of having a draft-dodger as Commander-In-Chief of the most murdering and depraved military on the face of this planet! And yet, we have no shame because not one word has been said about how much of an atrocity it is that this coward, who was so hellbent on never seeing a day of military service, actually feigned a piddling little medical diagnosis just to get out of doing so after having exhausted all college deferments, IS the Commander-In-Chief of that very same military.

Donald Trump’s ‘dedicated NON service’ to his country reads as follows:

Back in 1968, at the age of 22, Donald J. Trump seemed the picture of health.

He stood 6 feet 2 inches with an athletic build; had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10.

But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.

The [heel spur] diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.

The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. The others were for education.

That was then!

Today, well now, that’s another story!

[Draft Dodger-In-Chief], Donald Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe. He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Of course, Donald Trump is supportive of the military NOW! Yes indeed, all the rich white hypocrites, along with the biggest rich white hypocrite of all, the Draft Dodger-In-Chief, Donald J. Trump, can now press for the urgency of a military parade so that they can all express smug satisfaction over the fact that they, like Donald Trump, received deferments instead of draft notifications and so did not put their life on the line for a country built on the premise that “All men are created equal.” What a load of bullshit! Those who have don’t have to fight. Those who have not, have to fight! And you can be a draft dodger and still get to enjoy the status of Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. military, if you’re white, that is.

Ain’t life grand for the rich white man?!

What Did This Teacher Say That Was So Wrong?

I am in total agreement with this teacher.

Military-bashing California teacher pulled from classroom pending investigation

“Think about the people who you know who are over there. Your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumbshits. They’re not like high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people. They’re the lowest of our low.” – Gregory Salcido,49, who allegedly made this statement after asking his students why would they want to serve in the military overseas?

I am literally in tears from laughing! The man is absolutely spot on! So, why hate him for stating the truth because that is what he did? He called it like it is.

My stupid cousin Harold is in the military and he is even more stupid than Homer Simpson is portrayed and he’s also a nasty son-of-a-bitch in the bargain and cousin Harold signed up because he couldn’t keep a job, but the U.S. military said, “Welcome Harold!” And in went freaking stupid cousin Harold, right into the U.S. military.

The cannon fodder that make up the U.S. military are grunts fresh out of high school who cannot find a job or are working low wage jobs that don’t even pay them enough to live in a studio apartment in Cleveland, OH. These people are not ‘academic people’, nor are they ‘intellectual people’. They are indeed, ‘the lowest of our low’ because you can’t have much sense if you sign on the dotted line to kill or be killed in some foreign land while your wife here in the states is heading to the military base store to redeem food stamps because the couple’s baby would starve otherwise. The life of a new recruit is not worth much to the U.S. military and then we have the nerve to wonder why our military keeps getting its ass kicked everywhere it goes and don’t forget about the fact that the U.S. Navy can’t even navigate past ships in the ocean without ramming into them. Now, whoever was maneuvering that was freaking stupid!

sailors missing from US Navy warship involved in collision, US admiral says

Seven U.S. sailors are missing from the USS Fitzgerald after the ship collided with a Philippine-flagged merchant vessel ACX Crystal while operating off the coast of Japan

Now, this was a ‘warship’ that couldn’t even navigate around a merchant vessel and so since that was the case, what the hell is it going to do in actual live combat? Ram an enemy vessel? And that would probably be by accident and if some grunt was manning the torpedoes, so to speak, the torpedoes would probably be turned the wrong way and blow the U.S. Navy ship to bits.

Yes, indeed, as the teacher featured in the article has intimated, you’d better think long and hard before you sign on the dotted line to go overseas to engage the enemy with your freaking stupid Uncle Louie watching your back because how the hell do you think soldiers die from ‘friendly fire’? It is because of a bunch of freaking stupid Uncle Louie’s, that’s how. It is much better to remain at your low wage job and stay alive, than to risk life and limb for wages that still keep you in food stamps. Poor is poor except when it’s U.S. military poor which still means food stamps for your family and almost certain death for you if you are sent to a war zone and at the very least, mental illness and even homelessness because the U.S. military cares not one whit if you become mentally ill. You are then just as useless to them as if you were dead.

Have you forgotten Army Sgt. La David Johnson? Johnson and three others were killed over in Niger while acting as ‘advisers'(and even I don’t know to whom) when they were shot dead and before Sgt. Johnson signed up for the army, he worked in the produce section of his local Walmart. How could pulling bad lettuce and tomatoes from shelves at Walmart be of any use to an Army Sgt.? Now, if he had been responsible for plating salads over in Niger, hell yeah, he’d of been properly trained for the mission, but this soldier was carrying a gun, not a salad bowl when he was killed. So, this man had a high school diploma and was referred to as ‘produce boy’ by his friends and family and then he enlisted and was sent to Niger, with gun in hand and told to be a soldier. How well did that work out for Sgt. La David Johnson? Ask his widow and his little children who are left behind. This man would still be alive if he had continued to be ‘produce boy’ at Walmart instead of taking his dumb ass over to Niger and serving the U.S. military as expendable cannon fodder.

So, don’t castigate this teacher for telling the truth. Everything is not about disrespecting or dishonoring the troops. There are times when you ought to listen to the message without attacking the messenger, who in this case, is trying to save your stupid life.

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!

We Celebrate Memorial Day!

We celebrate Memorial Day in honor of blood spilled.
And we stand silently by and watch those coffins, filled
with the bodies of dead soldiers who once knew joy
but then lined up as though they were a tin soldier toy.

We take this day to solemnly give thanks and praise
to those who willingly reduced on this earth, their numbered days.
What a wonder it is to be alive and to show our gratitude
while those who served this country lie in glorious solitude.

As we head to the store to buy flags made in Vietnam
to bestow upon the grave of the sacrificial lamb,
we honor the memory of every unknown soldier
by giving him a neighbor to lie beside him, shoulder to shoulder.

Why should we cease to inscribe names on yet another wall,
since it is so easy to produce another soldier to heed war’s call?
No, we must never truly show our gratitude for our war weary dead,
and to those whose body lives while their mind died instead.

So, eat your hotdogs and your apple pie and wave your flag
while another soldier is soon to be placed in a body bag.

And here we go again! Taking a day to honor our war dead while still at war and so what have we learned? Not a goddamn thing! Monday, Trump’s depraved ass will solemnly place a wreath at the tomb of ‘The Unknown’ soldier; ‘The Unknowns’. And just which soldier did he know? What soldier did Obama or Bush know, either Bush, for that matter? Trump, after having just recently dropped the Mother Of All Bombs on Afghanistan and declared that more soldiers are necessary to fight some bogeymen that the U.S. trained and/or caused to be unleashed on the Middle East by way of the CIA will ‘borrow’ some dignity from somewhere just long enough to get through the hypocritical ceremony of the placing of the wreath. And then, it’s off to golfing and ordering some Big Macs.

Oh, how we really mean it when we “Thank a service man/woman for their service to this country” while we continue to add to their numbers because hardly any of us know a soldier who got him/herself killed in the line of ‘duty’ because it has always been some poor schmuck who was too dumb to understand that he’s still poor after having signed his life away and for what? Not a goddamn thing! Food stamps, a gun, a backpack and a flag to drape over his coffin. Yeah! Now, go eat your hot dog! Celebrate!

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.
