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!

“I’m Tired Of Hearing About Ebola!”

Scared? Suit up!
Scared? Suit up!

On October 2nd, 2014, this was one of my search engine terms, “im tired of hearing about ebola.” Frankly goddamn it, I am too!! If we take a look through the annals of history, we will find plagues or pandemics that have killed hundreds of millions of people and yet, we mere mortals that survived went on to continue to propagate our species, much to the detriment of all other species. It actually wouldn’t be such a bad idea for the rest of the planet if ‘humans’ became extinct since we’re only going to continue to ‘war’ with each other. But that’s only wishful thinking on my part.

Why is there such a fuss being made over Ebola when the U.S. and its allies have killed over a million Iraqi and Afghan civilians and have maimed hundreds of thousands more? And we are still at it, but a long comes Ebola and all of a sudden, everyone is terrified. I’ll tell you why you are all so fucking scared, it’s because unlike drones and missiles that have intended targets in places other than where you reside, Ebola is flying back and forth across the world and coming to a city where you live. You can’t fucking take that. It’s fine when bombs are being dropped elsewhere, that sort of killing is removed and remote from you, but Ebola just might have your name on its ‘hit’ list and that has you scared shitless. Well, fucking good! Get scared shitless. Know what it feels like to be mortally afraid for your goddamn worthless life. You are not more important than a poor Iraqi child that lost his life. Your life is not worth more than a mother in Afghanistan who lost her life because of bombs dropped by the U.S. and Its allies. You are certainly not as important as any of the millions of dead people that are dead because of U.S. taxpayer paid for missiles. And now that you find yourself to be not all that important, you can’t take it when your mortality is staring you down. Well, in that case, fear Ebola! Never mind the mafia, Ebola’s put a ‘hit’ out on you!

The Black Death killed how many people?

“In a time when the global population was an estimated 450 million, at least 75 million are believed to have perished throughout the pandemic, with some estimates as high as 200 million. As much as half of Europe may have died in a span of only four years. The plague’s name comes from the black skin spots on the sailors who travelled the Silk Road and docked in a Sicilian port, bringing with them from their Asian voyage the devastating disease, now known to be bubonic plague.”

And what about the Spanish Flu of 1918?

The Spanish Flu (despite the fact that it didn’t actually come from Spain). It burned out quickly and suddenly, by 1919, with the explanation still unknown today. But it left the global population decimated—with a mortality rate as high as one in five and an estimated one-third of the world population afflicted, as many as 50 million people are believed to have died. Approximately 25 million of those deaths came in the first 25 weeks of the outbreak.

HIV/AIDS is a pandemic that we are still battling.

“As of 2011 at least 60 million people had been infected by AIDS and 25 million had died. Today its impact varies widely across the world—while in 2008 an estimated 1.2 million Americans had HIV, Sub-Saharan Africa alone was home to 22.9 million cases, with one in five adults infected. About 35.3 million people were believed to have HIV in 2012.”

What about the plague of Justinian?

“In the year 541, rats on Egyptian grain boats brought a pestilence to the Easter Roman Empire that would ultimately leave approximately 25 million people dead. The Plague of Justinian quickly tore through the empire. Even the emperor himself—Justinian I, for whom the plague was named—contracted the disease.”

Let us not forget the Antonine Plague.

“Named for Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, who ruled during the outbreak along with co-regent Lucius Verus, the outbreak began in 165 and lasted until 180. An estimated five million people died from what is now thought to have been smallpox.”

“At one point during the extended pandemic an estimated 2,000 Romans died each day. This isn’t a plague that discriminated—both emperors mentioned above are believed to be among its victims.”

“And according to the article, cholera deserves and honorable mention because this disease has managed to kill millions.”

“The World Health Organization estimates that each year that passes sees between 3 and 5 million new cholera cases, killing as many as 120,000 people. Untreated, it can kill in a matter of hours.”

http://www.rwjf.org/en/blogs/new-public-health/2013/12/the_five_deadliesto.html

We’re always hearing about cholera outbreaks in Haiti, but no one seems to be concerned other than the Haitians and since Haiti is dirt poor, hardly anyone, apparently, is vacationing in Haiti. Now, if Ebola were to hit Acapulco, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara and Tequila in Jalisco, oh there’s gonna be hell to pay. Oh how Americans love to hate the Mexicans until it’s Spring Break and vacation time! Then there is a never ending stream of Americans crossing the border. Funny that! Americans don’t want the Mexicans crossing over into their border, which actually WAS their border before it got annexed, but we certainly don’t mind being entertained by the Mexicans in the territory that we graciously allowed them to keep, eh? We’re SO fucking full of it, fucking hypocrites that Americans are! But, oh how I digress!

Oh and, don’t forget that 80%-90% of North American Indians were killed by the Europeans in what amounted to genocide or in other words, a Holocaust, you know like the six million Jews that the Nazis did away with?

http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/American_Indian_Holocaust

Heaven forbid that Ebola has the balls to head to America, home of American ‘exceptionalism’. What’s the matter ‘exceptional’ Americans? Ebola is supposed to know how ‘exceptional’ you are and therefore, dare not set foot on the shores of America? You know what? Maybe this is payback for the ‘exceptional’ Americans sitting mute while other countries around the globe are getting bombed into the dark ages by American bombs. Maybe a little payback was in the cards and now you’re going bat shit nuts over Ebola. Ebola’s going to even the playing field, so to speak. When America’s military is dropping bombs on innocent heads, not so innocent limbs in America will start to show signs of Ebola for every innocent that an American bomb, killed. Think on it! We Americans are no more special than all the millions, the world over, who are dead because we cannot be bothered to get up off our ass and do something about the everlasting wars we wage against others in foreign lands who have done us no harm.

Never think that nature doesn’t have a way of sorting things out and as I’ve already stated, level the playing field. About time, I say! So, yeah, Americans, be afraid! Be very afraid!

 

What Makes ‘U.S.’ So Damn Exceptional?

imagesDHE5U8FI

As bombs paid for by me, turn your home into useless rubble,
you wonder why I condone my government’s war with you.
How can you comprehend my willingness to scream, “More war!”
It is because I have been programmed by certain images to hate the things you do.

“thoughts of the brainwashed Americans*
———————————————————————————————————-

When your western media plasters your entertainment devices with beheadings, you are shocked!
And yet what you refuse to find shocking is that your government’s actions caused those beheadings.

Why should I love you when you’ve destroyed my country over a lie?
What would you do if the same were to happen to your beloved homeland?

When will you realize that I am just as human as you are and my children too deserve to live?
Why can you not understand that when you bomb me, I am going to hate you?
Can you really not conceive of the idea that what you’ve done to me is not going to make me love you?

How foolish of you to sleep in your snug beds, driving around on oil from my country and scream when I retaliate for the victims of your white phosphorus in Fallujah,
when I retaliate for the women who have lost children thanks to your bombs,
when I retaliate for orphans who wander around crying because their family is dead.

What makes you so damn exceptional and so damn more important than we are?
Why do you feel this way? Is it because there is no one bombing your country?

You speak of your 911 as though that gives you the right to kill millions of my people.
Why are your 3,000 American bodies more important than any other bodies on this planet?

We do not find you to be exceptional and we will not kneel at the feet of your war machine.
And you know what America, fuck you and your exceptionalism and your arrogance.

Fuck you in your cells that you call homes and even now you think that you are free.
You are not free as you have only the illusion of freedom and one day even that will end.

I do not have to bring ‘terrorism’ to your country America just because you bring it to mine.
For one day, the seeds that you have planted in my country will grow and they are growing,
and your bombs and your drones will not stop us because when you kill me, there will be others.

And for every one of us that you kill, a thousand more is ready to take up the cause,
the cause of wiping your vileness off the face of this planet and we will America!

Count on it and see what you will reap for all the children that you have killed in foreign lands to get their oil,
and for all the mothers and fathers that you have buried with your lust for what is ours,
we will pay you back and we will be victorious because we are what you wish to destroy.
And though you try, you will never be able to defeat us because we are not afraid to die!

*thoughts of a ‘militant’ fighting back against invaders of his country*

——————————————————————————————————

I would like to take this opportunity to say that once again the U.S. and Great Britain lead the charge into Iraq and even though as of yet Great Britain has abstained from bombing Syria, those in Great Britain should be choking over the fact that they and the Americans are the reasons why ‘groups’ are hell bent on ‘terrorizing’ their way across Iraq and Syria and Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East. The destabilization of that region lies squarely with the ‘coalition of the stupid and the oil gluttons’ and the reason why, according to so many polls that point to Americans not having a problem with the continuation of genocide against the people of the Middle East is because of our dependence on foreign oil and because those who are sent into harms way to keep that oil flowing to the U.S. are not the sons and daughters of the rich nor are they the sons and daughters of the upper middle class. The cannon fodder is expendable because of who makes up the cannon fodder; the bodies that return in bags and the wreckage of once whole people who actually make it back end up on the streets, homeless or incarcerated, are the poor.

Everything ISIS aka IS aka ISIL aka al-Qaeda aka who the hell knows what group is next to be announced learned, they learned from the warmongers in the U.S. and Great Britain, the coalition of the wars-are-for-profit bastards that make a killing off war and they learned it well.

From the quagmire that was Vietnam, we learned not a damn thing because if we think that by doing the same thing that we did in Vietnam that we are going to get a different result, we are indeed, insane and quite frankly, we are! With every bomb that we drop, with every drone that we launch and it hits a target, we are fostering resentment, hate and a renewed fervor for revenge by those whom we have bombed to strike back and they will. If we kill one, a hundred more will take up where they left off. It will not end, not unless the U.S. and its coalition of the stupid manage to kill every single man, woman and child in the Middle East and even that won’t stop it because people are joining the ranks of the so-called terrorists as I type this from countries all over the world.

When will there be an understanding that the world’s people are not going to be bombed into the West’s way of thinking? And showing pictures of beheadings will gain sympathy as it was intended to do but that will still not make those who are alleged to have beheaded people to stop doing it. And those of us in the U.S. really have no clue as to who is doing what because we believe everything the media whores shove at us without question and just so long as no one is continuously bombing America, all is good. Well, it’s not because there is not a damn thing exceptional about Americans that is not exceptional about the Iraqi people who have been killed all over a lie. There is nothing at all exceptional about soldiers that killed Afghan civilians and pissed on their dead bodies, chopped off their body parts and emailed the pictures. Where is your outrage America over that? Where is your outrage over the torture of innocent Iraqi people in Abu Ghraib prison? Where is your outrage over America’s use of white phosphorus in Fallujah? Have you even cared to find out what white phosphorus does to the body? No, you haven’t because according to Americans, no one other than Americans are exceptional. Well, America, you are indeed exceptional. You are exceptionally obtuse, stupid, arrogant, brainwashed, hypocritical, depraved and vile and so long as you continue to think that no other people on this planet is worthy of living like you do, you WILL reap what you sow!

“It’s All Humanitarian!”

While the champagne’s chillin’
and the steaks are grillin’,
thought I’d type for a spell
and oh, what the hell!

We’re bombing in Iraq
’cause we got it like that.
It’s all humanitarian
we’re such a good Samaritan!

As Gaza gets shelled
Netanyahu ain’t jailed
for genocide and all
’cause Hamas just won’t play ball.

Nor will ISIS or ISIL, trained by the CIA
and Iraq’s security forces all went MIA.

Obama said to Martha, “It’s my vacation time!”
“That shit in Iraq, it’s such a fucking crime!”
“And Palestine, you go to hell and take the Gaza Strip”
“Israel, see to it and don’t let up or slip!”
“We’ve invested American dollars to help you out, my friend!”
“So hop to getting it done and as with Gaza, here’s the end!”

While we here in America are attending a baseball game and gearing up for football and wining and dining, ‘exceptional’ shits that we are, people all over the world are getting fucked up by some shit that we started and either just can’t leave the hell alone or are busy instigating it by gifting millions to Israel to genocide all over the Palestinian people while we bomb Iraq for humanitarian reasons as stated by our piece of shit hypocritical, self-appointed, Emperor despot Obadrone, himself! Hail to the Chief! Emperor ’cause bombing IS the humanitarian thing to do!

“The extremists’ “campaign of terror against the innocent, including the Yazidi and Christian minorities, and its grotesque and targeted acts of violence bear all the warning signs and hallmarks of genocide,” said U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “For anyone who needed a wake-up call, this is it.”

Wow! That’s some deep shit right there! John Kerry is against genocide! Can you believe it? Uh…NO! Can you say, “GAZA!!!!????, ANYONE?! And as if what John Kerry, our Secretary of State said wasn’t bad enough, Obama had this to say,

Obama authorizes air strikes to prevent Iraq ‘genocide’

President Barack Obama says he has authorized US air strikes on Iraq to prevent a “genocide” by Islamist extremists against minorities.

http://news.msn.com/videos/?ap=True&videoid=15d112a8-d378-4f0e-a4a6-40535fd8443c

So, Obama authorized bombs to prevent genocide in Iraq while giving Israel’s Netanyahu a free pass in bombing and COMMITTING genocide against the Palestinian people! The hypocrisy of the Obama Administration knows no bounds! Unbefuckingbelievable!!!!!! Apparently, there’s ‘good’ genocide and ‘bad’ genocide and the U.S. government gets to pick which is which and ain’t that a bitch!!! Fucking gag me with a goddamn bomb, why doncha!!!!!

Bombing people over and over has always solved SO goddamn much and if you can name one goddamn thing GOOD that a bomb has achieved, then leave your comment and don’t even bother commenting on how bombing the Japanese ended World War II because I’ve read time and time again, that Japan was defeated before they got hell unleashed on them by means of two atomic bombs. Goddamn it!

For nearly seven decades, the American public has accepted one version of the events that led to Japan’s surrender. By the middle of 1945, the war in Europe was over, and it was clear that the Japanese could hold no reasonable hope of victory. After years of grueling battle, fighting island to island across the Pacific, Japan’s Navy and Air Force were all but destroyed. The production of materiel was faltering, completely overmatched by American industry, and the Japanese people were starving. A full-scale invasion of Japan itself would mean hundreds of thousands of dead GIs, and, still, the Japanese leadership refused to surrender.

But in early August 66 years ago, America unveiled a terrifying new weapon, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In a matter of days, the Japanese submitted, bringing the fighting, finally, to a close.

On Aug. 6, the United States marks the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing’s mixed legacy.

http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/ideas/articles/2011/08/07/why_did_japan_surrender/

…and so, bomb’s away! Here’s to genocide, destruction, chaos, pandemonium and some more shit!!!

The U.S. Navy Shot Down A Passenger Plane Killing All 290 on board, including 66 children and 16 crew!

vincennes

“Iran Air Flight 655 was an Iran Air civilian passenger flight from Tehran to Dubai that was shot down by the United States Navy guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes on 3 July 1988. The incident took place in Iranian airspace, over Iran’s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf, and on the flight’s usual flight path. The aircraft, an Airbus A300 B2-203, was destroyed by SM-2MR surface-to-air missiles fired from the Vincennes.”

Did you fucking read that? The United States shot down a CIVILIAN PASSENGER FLIGHT KILLING ALL 290 ON BOARD INCLUDING 66 CHILDREN!! Where’s your fucking outrage over that, Amerikkka???!!!! Why aren’t you screeching about that Hillary skank ass Clinton, you nasty bitch!

…and now you hypocritical Amerikkkan fucks go bat shit crazy over wanting Vladimir Putin’s head on a platter claiming that he is responsible for the downed Flight MH17. Where is your goddamn petticoat junction outrage over the killing of innocent people by America’s military via navy whores? Why do they fucking get a free pass? Oh that’s right! Those people don’t matter. They were probably mostly Iranians anyways. So, why the fuck should we care? We’ve got an agenda and Russia ain’t playing along with it and just who the hell do they think they are? Not playing by the rules of the elite fucks in Amerikkka? We’re fucking ‘exceptional’ and all and why don’t they bow and scrape to us and act like they know this?

Hillary Clinton and her ilk only have to screech about what an atrocity the downing of Flight MH17 is and how Russia and Vladimir Putin is to blame and onboard the simple ass Amerikkkan brain dead jump! Never mind, the history of this shithole that gets conveniently ignored while we commence to waving the goddamn worthless ass stars and stripes and get all patriotic because even though we know that Amerikkka is fucked and was fucked by capitalist criminals, we don’t want to go down all by our lonesome. We’ve got to blame Russia for what we set in motion because then we can use that military might for which we spend so many goddamn billions on to get into the mess that Amerikkka fucking started in Ukraine. We don’t have any problems in Amerikkka. Who the fuck cares about a failing infrastructure? Who the fuck cares about an ancient power grid that’s on the verge of collapse? Who the fuck cares about all the droughts? Who the fuck cares about homeless veterans? Who the fuck cares about the millions who are jobless and who are without health care coverage? We’re about the business of minding the world’s goddamn business to the detriment of our own. We ain’t got a fucking care in the world, ‘exceptional’ shits that we are!

Mr. Putin has shown much diplomacy and tact in the face of outrageous and unfounded accusations to the point that I have much respect for him as a leader and as a person and I have not a goddamn thimble full of respect for Amerikkka or the shits that are at the helm of this lopsided, sinking stinking shithole barge and may it sink soon, drowning every ‘exceptional’ piece of Amerikkkan brain dead flotsam in the process is my greatest hope!

The United States government DID NOT FORMALLY APOLOGIZE to Iran.[11] In 1996, the United States and Iran reached a settlement at the International Court of Justice which included the statement “…the United States recognized the aerial incident of 3 July 1988 as a terrible human tragedy and expressed deep regret over the loss of lives caused by the incident…”.[12] As part of the settlement, the United States did not admit legal liability but agreed to pay on an ex gratia basis US$61.8 million, amounting to $213,103.45 per passenger, in compensation to the families of the Iranian victims.

Iran Air still uses flight number IR655 on the Tehran to Dubai route as a memorial to the victims.

Of course we don’t apologize! Apologize for what? We don’t do a goddamn thing wrong! We simply point fingers while fucking up this entire world and expecting everybody in it to bow and scrape to us and if they don’t, they get their ass handed to ’em on a bloody platter and on we go to the next!

May God damn Amerikkka to hell!!!

A Battleground!

nuclear_explosion_atomic_bomb-1680x1050

I want to thank you all for coming onto my blog.
The reason I write is to try and cut through the fog.

Our American representatives are straight up whores.
Their only interest is to embroil us in more wars.

We bear so many scars from wounds that have yet to heal.
Veterans are denied access to health care and that shit is for real.

Stupid Americans always believe everything they are told.
They never question the government and it’s getting so old.

How can we wake up the dead when they refuse to open their eyes?
What is the point when they are hell bent on believing all the lies?

When we hear of the shit that is going down in Libya, what do we do?
We don’t do a goddamn thing even when we know what they tell us isn’t true.

The Israelis are killing the Palestinians and yes, we are complicit in that shit.
Our tax dollars fund a goddamn genocide on the Gaza strip and here we sit.

Iraq is in turmoil, civil war has broken out and who the fuck do you think is to blame?
What does it matter because we always find a patsy, a scapegoat to frame.

Is it ISIS or ISIL or al-Qaeda or some yet unheard of made up group?
We are so fucking trusting, so stupid and so goddamn easy to dupe!

They don’t even bother to pretend we matter or that we are important.
When that lying Obama speaks to us, he is pedantic and oh so mordant.

What is the use in trying to get through to you when you don’t even listen?
You’d rather get propaganda from the Washington Post, the lame stream edition.

Wake the fuck up and recognize that America is killing this goddamn world.
Our very existence could soon end and life as we know it is imperiled.

Those who run this country are hell bent on keeping the status quo alive.
They would take us all down and not hesitate as they mean to survive.

The rules are written by them and we are mere chess pieces on a board.
Power, they refuse to relinquish and immense wealth they must hoard.

Look to the East and see the hell that has been unleashed.
Then get your calculator out and start counting the bodies of the deceased.

And don’t bother to stop, just hand the calculator over to some other fool.
They keep a running tab of the dead and the dying as a rule.

You thought to look to the future because you think that you have one.
Little do you know that your life will soon be over, finished and done.

Think on that shit, let it sizzle and simmer and then put in on your plate.
Maybe then, the fog will clear and the fact that you’ve being played will penetrate.

Why do you think we outspend every other country in the world on our military?
Well, I got news for you, it ain’t because the expenditure is necessary.

Why the fuck don’t you stop playing with your toys and take a look around
long enough to realize that America has turned the whole goddamn world into a battleground?

As I read different blogs, I am just astounded by the sheer cluelessness and outright stupidity of Americans who believe that Vladimir Putin and Russia is actually responsible for downing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. The outpouring of anger at Vladimir Putin is amazing given what we know about what is behind that mess in Ukraine. I just have to shake my head over it all because many Americans are truly insane. What other explanation is there? To be that brainwashed, I did not think was possible, but apparently, it is. The unquestionable acceptance of whatever is shoved down the throats of people who refuse to think for themselves and to just believe utter tripe is just mind blowing. I am ashamed to call myself, American when many in other countries are not blind, nor are they willing to believe the blatant and outrageous lies that the American representative shits are spouting without any credible evidence to back up their tall tales and overblown lies. But I forget, the rest of the world has not been blessed with that great American ‘exceptionalism’, so how can they possibly understand that America can do NO wrong because Americans are ‘exceptional’. The only problem with that is Americans are exceptionally stupid, arrogant, hypocritical, brain dead, comatose, ignorant and full of shit!

So Americans, bring your clueless, stupid ass on up in here with some foolish shit, I fucking dare ya!

 

Oh How We Take Care Of Our Own!

military

I read this article with mounting disbelief.
http://money.msn.com/saving-money-tips/post–military-families-use-record-number-of-food-stamps

Call me naïve, but I had no idea that ANY military family qualified for food stamps and didn’t congress just recently gut the hell out of the food stamp program AGAIN? We all remember last November when the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) expired and this resulted in a food stamp benefits drop for nearly 47 million Americans. And with the recent signing into law, by Emperor Despot Obadroner, of the new Farm Bill, this put even more of a hurting on families who were already suffering food shortages and who were going hungry or lining up at food banks.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/30/opinion/the-farm-bill-could-have-been-worse.html

Somebody, ANYBODY tell me how in unholy hell can those rats in Washington go to sleep at night and not see visions of gaunt faced Americans, moaning because their stomachs are growling and many of them have, are or did serve in the U.S. military? Seriously? Is this how you ‘thank’ someone for their ‘service’ to this fucked up country? By sending them a message that they can, “go eat cake?” I cannot wrap my head around the unmitigated hypocrisy that is displayed by our so-called representatives. Did those of you with TVs not notice what a huge round of applause an injured serviceman with limbs missing, received at the SOTU by the same shits that basically told him to “go eat shit?!!!? We’re done with you and even if we’re not, you can still just go eat shit!!
As for Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, are they not on a mission to ‘help’ our military personnel? Well, aren’t they?

“So in April 2011, the first lady and Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, decided to act, forming “Joining Forces,” to bring attention to the unique needs and strengths of America’s soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.

I won’t be satisfied — nor will my husband — until every single veteran and military spouse who wants a job has one. All of you deserve nothing less. Nothing less,” Mrs. Obama said.”

Uh…Mrs. Obama? They did indeed receive LESS and less is not the new MORE. They got less food stamps because congress decided they didn’t need them and your husband the emperor, signed it into law. So, if as you say, you “won’t be satisfied—nor will YOUR husband, Despot Obadroner be satisfied—until EVERY SINGLE VETERAN AND MILITARY SPOUSE has a job,” then why is it that if they do(and I don’t think they do)have a job, they still need food stamps and they’re even now getting LESS of those? You got some ‘splaining to do, see, ‘cause this is what I read today.

“Military families, military retirees and others with shopping privileges on military bases redeemed nearly $104 million worth of food stamps at commissaries in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30. That’s a 5 percent increase from 2012 and the highest it’s ever been.

Operation Homefront, a nonprofit that provides financial and emergency assistance to some of the country’s lowest-paid service members received 2,968 emergency requests for food help, nearly three times the number in 2008.”

New soldiers earn about $20,000 annually(Wow! Put your life on the line for your country and you can expect to get paid TOP dollar, oh yes you can. This is ‘change that will land you in the food stamp line after which you must then head to the food shelf line.)


The unemployment rate for military spouses ages 18-24 was a whopping 30 percent in 2012. (But, but I thought that the unemployment rate stands at 6.6%. Thirty percent, six percent? Somebody’s lying like a rug.)

Congress recently cut funding for the food stamp program — which impacts military and civilian families. Meanwhile, Military Times reports that the Pentagon is considering raising prices at commissaries.

Raise the prices at the commissaries? Raise the prices at the commissaries? Are they for real? Has anybody at the Pentagon read a newspaper? They don’t know that food stamps have been cut? And signed into law by Despot Obadroner-in-chief? Stop the goddamn presses! Oh, my bad, somebody obviously did!

Servicemen and women and to your spouses, your government thanks you so very much for your sacrifice, we do indeed, and we show you just how much by spouting bullshit about how we’re going to make sure that each and every one of you has a job although 30 percent of you are unemployed and we are going to make sure that you have everything that you need which is why we are going to cut your allotment of food stamps and then we are going to raise the price of that food that you buy on the base.

Now see how much we care about you? We care deeply about our cannon fodder, we really do. We are so sorry that you have missing limbs. We are so sorry that many of you have lost your mind. We are so sorry that you have been on endless deployments but that cannot be helped because as you know, we must depose legitimate rulers in foreign lands and we need you while the CIA is training those rebel forces better known to you as the enemy, al-Qaeda. We need boots on the ground, everywhere. And if by chance you come back home, please remember to bring any and all of your rations because we’ve cut your food stamp benefits and the cost of food at the base stores is going up! Thank you for your service! Ain’t American ‘exceptionalism’ fucking grand??!

And god damned the United Snakes of Amurderer because we are exceptional!
