A Tale Of Two Coons

First up, we have old school coon Jesse Jackson, who is all bent-out-of shape over what Donald Trump served the Clemson Tigers at the White House.

Jesse Jackson: White House serving Clemson a fast-food meal was ‘disgraceful’

The Rev. Jesse Jackson said he was “offended” that President Donald Trump served fast food to the Clemson Tigers at the White House after they claimed the College Football Playoff national championship.

“The national champions deserved better,” said Jackson, a native of Greenville, South Carolina.

With the White House staff on furlough because of the federal government’s partial shutdown, Trump paid to have a buffet of burgers and pizza brought in Monday to feed the Tigers.

Now, I will admit that I couldn’t give a shit for sports. Hell, I didn’t know anything about the Clemson Tigers down to the fact that they played football. But quite actually, I don’t care about what is fed to some grown ass men who are chasing some ball around in the hopes to head to the NFL. If they didn’t want the shit Trump served them, then they did not have to eat it. What I do care about is the fact that there are people about to lose their housing assistance and their food stamps and that will impact many, many children who are already living in poverty. What has Jesse Jackson’s coonhead ass said about that? Not a goddamn thing and he won’t because he has never been about a damn thing that counted because if he was, he would have been assassinated long before now. Any so-called pro-Black civil rights leader or Black nationalist from the 60s who is still walking around, free as a bird, is a coonhead sellout. Because the true warriors for Black people have all been either assassinated or are sitting up in prison or have died in prison or are in exile. Jesse Jackson’s ass does not fit the profile of a ‘true warrior’ for Black people.

Jesse Jackson finds it ‘disgraceful’ what some mostly white men were served at the White House when he is not concerned at all about the plight of millions of mothers and their children who will be sitting out on the streets if there is no end to this government shutdown, who will go hungry if there is no end to this government shutdown. Apparently, that is not ‘disgraceful’ to him because he ain’t about shit! Why did he have not a goddamn thing to say about the fact that those rich whites in congress and in the White House are sitting all up on the dole and are still receiving their ill gotten gains while those who also paid taxes to this shithole, since everything in this bitch is taxed, are about to lose their housing assistance and some paltry ass food stamps that don’t even extend throughout the entire month, because if they did, I would not be carting people to food pantries to supplement what their low wages and food stamps don’t cover? And some of the people I haul around are working two jobs and yet, they are shamed as though they are living the good life, sitting back feeding their children filet mignon while living high off the hog. That is so not happening. I am almost in tears when I see what is sticking out of the tops of the grocery bags because it’s not fit for children to eat, but since it stretches, that’s what they eat; cheap hot dogs, peanut butter and jelly, white bread, hamburger, Hamburger Helper, Ramen noodles and more shit of the like. And what’s sitting at food pantries is hardly any better. And I have seen white folks in those places begging for toilet tissue to wipe their ass, it’s that bad since obviously food stamps don’t pay for toilet tissue and so food pantries stock some and they run out of items of that nature real quick.

This is why the Black community is in horrible shape because the so-called Black leaders use the ‘bully pulpit’ for ALL the wrong reasons. Instead of calling out congress and the president over this childish display of foolishness in that Pelosi called for Trump to reschedule the SOTU wherein Trump responded with grounding Pelosi’s plane from taking her to Afghanistan and elsewhere, Jackson instead admonished Trump over what he fed some well-fed football players completely ignoring the immense impact this shutdown will have on millions of innocent people including children. Someone asked me the other day, “Are there any adults in the room?” To which I responded, “Quite actually, no and more’s the damn pity!”

And now we come to another old school coon, Gladys Knight, who just commented that she is most proud to sing the National Anthem at the Superbowl.

Gladys Knight Comments on Colin Kaepernick and Super Bowl: ‘I Am Here to Give the Anthem Back Its Voice’

“I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things, and they are police violence and injustice,” “It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone.

“I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice, to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles I have fought long and hard for all my life, from walking back hallways, from marching with our social leaders, from using my voice for good — I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII.

“I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us.”

What is unfortunate is how stupid Gladys Knight really is in that she thinks that a song that symbolizes what this nation stands for which is theft, slavery and genocide, in her opinion, “needs its voice back, uniting us when we hear it, bringing us all together.” Who the fuck is she kidding and how many times was she dropped on her damn head? Oh yes, she will sing the first stanza of the Star Spangled Banner, just as ALL who’ve gone before has done. But what she will not sing is this!

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And so what does the above mean? It meant that slaves joined up with the British to fight against their tormentors; their ‘owners’. And isn’t that what white men are called in the NFL? Owners of those mostly ‘Black’ players? Indeed!

The orders given to the Royal Navy’s Admiral Sir George Cockburn read:


“Let the landings you make be more for the protection of the desertion of the Black Population than with a view to any other advantage. … The great point to be attained is the cordial Support of the Black population. With them properly armed & backed with 20,000 British Troops, Mr. Madison will be hurled from his throne.

Whole families found their way to the ships of the British, who accepted everyone and pledged no one would be given back to their “owners.” Adult men were trained to create a regiment called the Colonial Marines, who participated in many of the most important battles, including the August 1814 raid on Washington.

So when Francis Scott Key penned “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,” he was taking great satisfaction in the death of slaves who’d freed themselves. His perspective may have been affected by the fact he owned several slaves himself.

After the U.S. and the British signed a peace treaty at the end of 1814, the U.S. government demanded the return of American “property,” which by that point numbered about 6,000 people. The British refused. Most of the 6,000 eventually settled in Canada, with some going to Trinidad, where their descendants are still known as “Merikins.”

Francis Scott Key got his ass kicked by a regiment of Black slave Colonial Marines and he didn’t hardly appreciate that fact and so penned that vile shit and called it, “The Star Spangled Banner” and yet many Black singers have bellowed that vile shit out and they had to have known about this verse as well even if they did not take the time to read up on the history of that disgusting pile of shit of a song. The British refused to turn over what the U.S. government deemed its ‘PROPERTY’! And what the fuck has changed? Not a goddamn thing because descendants of slaves are still viewed as PROPERTY by this hated and most viciously vile ass government. You stupid, dumb ass Blacks like Gladys Knight, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Diana Ross and yes, even dead ones, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin just to name a few have all sung a song that stands for a nation steeped in the blood of Indians and slaves dragged from Africa. A nation that proudly, to this day, confirms that it still stands for slavery and genocide seeing as how there over 2 million descendants of slaves incarcerated which is more than were original African slaves and the Indians are still segregated on reservations experiencing hunger, illness and abject poverty while the descendants of those who put them there are still waging war on the descendants of slaves and the Indigenous population.

So no, Gladys ‘dumbass’ knight, by your singing that shit, it will NOT bring us ALL together. It will NOT unite us. It will just make you look like the fool you are; massa’s fool and he will laud you for it even as he laughs at your stupidity. But since you’re obviously so played out that you need the gig, go right ahead. Step right up and display your cooning abilities since that is what many Black people are good at, especially those who can stand and say they marched for Civil Rights and against Jim Crow and yet will sing a song that calls for the return of ‘PROPERTY’, meaning slaves you are descended from. Yeah coon, your massas are loving the fact that they can get Black people to do anything! Hand them a few dollars or the ability to sell some of their music thanks to their face at the Super Bowl and they can forget and forgive slavery, Jim Crow, three-fifths, the one-drop rule, discrimination, racism, bigotry, police brutality, gentrification, mass homelessness and income inequality visited on Black people, not to mention the introduction of crack into once vibrant Black communities that left them devastated. Gladys Knight can overlook ALL of that for her 15 minutes upon the stage to sell a few songs on iTunes. You go with your coonhead ass Gladys Knight. Until those of your era die out, we will continue to see coons do fuck all when given an opportunity to speak from the bully pulpit.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Sing that verse, why don’t you Gladys Knight and see how fast your mic would get cut the fuck off. But you don’t have the balls to do that, coonhead!

Key got his ass kicked by many a slave,
who valiantly fought, each was so brave.
What Amerikkka wanted was for them in a grave
but they boarded a ship and from a distance did wave.

There! I fixed it for them! Now sing that, you lousy coonhead fucker! Two coonheads who could have used the bully pulpit to shed light on the plight of those who look like them if this government shutdown continues, but instead, one decided to take umbrage over what Trump served some game playing motherfuckers at the White House and the other goes on to defend a racist national anthem. And I have the nerve to wonder why Black America has made no gains. With shit such as this in our corner and white enemies on our asses daily, is it any wonder??!!

“Oh Dear, Bubba Dear!”

bubba dear and his flag2

 

As a southerner, I am neither appalled nor am I outraged over what Bubba Dear has done. ‘Homegrown’ terrorists like Bubba Dear are a dime a dozen here in the land of the stupid and the afraid; better known to most of you as AmeriKKKa.

Bubba Dear is giving us Amerikkkans, a bad name and that is a fact. I mean, for goodness sake, we just finished gorging ourselves on dead turkeys and now Bubba Dear comes along and makes a mockery of our ‘thankfulness’ over this Thanksgiving weekend. What a way to finish out this “We are all thankful for your bounty and for your blessings Oh Lord God on high and as we celebrate how thankful we are to be with friends and family, we look forward to the holiness of Christmas and the Christ child’s virgin birth yada yada yada. Damn! I just gagged my own damn self over that pile of horseshit! But thankfully, there’s that word again, ‘thankful’, thankfully we’ve got Bubba Dear to remind us just how thankful we ought be. I mean, here he comes ‘a riding in on his big white steed….uh…I mean, in his pickup truck just a gunning fer those awful sinners down at the Planned Parenthood clinic and snakes alive, Bubba up and kills a pole-eesmun and he don’t even get hisself full of bullet holes; he ain’t shot so many daggone times that he’s a looking like Swiss cheese. And the cops even stopped long enough to give us a word on why Bubba Dear commenced to killing folks at the Planned Parenthood Clinic. He was, according to the cops, upset about fetal parts selling. Even though it weren’t no fetal body part of any of Bubba Dear’s inbred offspring, he was still all het up over it and since he had been reading that magazine called, Southern White Supremacy Terrorism”, well Bubba Dear just got all sorts of crazy ideas and since all of us in the south and evuhwhere else in AmeriKKKa got at least 25 guns, well, it weren’t no problem a’tall fer Bubba Dear to pick amongst his cache and get ta shooting.

We is all surprised like, ’cause this don’t happen in Amerikkka on a regular basis. We is too busy going on and on about dat dar ISIS, which us in the south thought was a goddess, but we is catching up with the rest of the world and even though “The South Will Rise Agin!” we gone see to it that fetal body parts don’t get sold. Bubba Dear was just doing his patriotic duty by protecting ALL Amerikkkans agin the gubmint law that states that wimmins has the rights to kill bābeez! Now, don’t mine Bubba Dear’s lack of an edumacasion and the fact that Bubba Dear considers hisself ta be filled with the supremes ’cause he feels that he is supreme to Black folks. I’m gonna keep this clean and it is real hard ta do so since I just cum from a Klan meeting muself. I dressed in ‘white’ face ’cause I’m doing an article on ‘White Supreme Groups Who’s Who’. I must say that I certainly appreciate Bubba Dear here ‘outing’ hisself in ‘Who’s Who’ so’s I can check him off muh list since he is gonna be incarcerated fer a few days. Just long enough fer his comrade terrorists to ‘Go Fund’ him some bale monies. Don’t mine muh spelling. We ain’t too brite down here. Hell! Y’all see how Bubba Dear was living. He weren’t never one fer food stamps seeing as how dat dar is a gubmint run program and terrorists like Bubba Dear is agin a’seeking help especially since he said that Obama was gone personally brung him his food stamps if’n he applied fer dem. He said, “I ain’t abowt ta haf no nigger cum to my hawse and hand me no goddamn food stamps. I’d just as soon as hunt fer berries and shoot me a possum or two.”

But now that Bubba Dear has committed this heinous crime dat he don’t think is a crime, he’s gonna get fed by the very gubmint he was hell bent on being non-compliant to. Ain’t that something? Now, I gots to tell Bubba Dear’s homeys that he ain’t gonna be home fer supper tuhnight ’cause he’s  a dining in the big hawse. Dey should a told Bubba Dear to hold off of doing dat at least til after the Thanksgiving holeeday.

I want to say in closing that we is all thankful that Bubba Dear was cawt and dat he is where he belongs. However, please to consider that Bubba edumacated hisself and the only book dat he had was ‘See Dick Run’. Now, can you at least sympathize with the fact that his brain potential was nevuh fully realized? Can you come to terms with the fact that Bubba Dear thought that he was supreme? Unfortunately, dare are many mo Bubba Dears out dare and dey is gonna go off on a rampage and keel some folks.  Dey is worse den ISIS! So wave a webel flag for Bubba Dear tuhnight and say it wif me, “The Sawth Weel Rize Agin! Stop the selling of fetul bawdee pawts!” Now, ain’t we all ‘thankful’?

Black Folks, We Are Fucking Doomed…..!

angels and jesus

 

 

….because we don’t have the face of an angel. Every goddamn time we look around, an angel is depicted as being a sweet little innocent white child all dressed up in white and with red rouge painted on the cheeks or is that Cupid? Regardless! Because even if it is Cupid, the little white cherub that shoots an arrow into your heart, Cupid is white and white is good, white is kind, white is benevolent, white is what you as Black people can never aspire to. Forget about it! Get your Black ass out of the way because you don’t have that angelic look; the look that whites have.

When next you are in church praying to a ‘white’ god, look up at the picture of Jesus Christ. He is white. How the hell could a Black man be depicted as Jesus? Everybody knows that Black people are the very spawn of the devil. I am all up in the fucking church today, preaching it! All of you Black heathens look to the ‘white Jesus’ to save you. Look to GOD who of course is also white and we know this because of all the white folks that have died, temporarily, saw a tunnel, some lights and a white man at the end of it telling them to “Go back, you have much more killing of the evil Black people to do! Now don your blue uniform with the badge and hop to it. Don that white robe with the eye slits and hop to it. Shave your white ass head and hop to it! Fuck them no-account niggaz up!” As you can see, weze unedumacated as it is. So what the hell good are we? We ain’t no goddamn good! Whites done spouted that shit out often enough.

I am always going on and on about how people should become aware of how much they matter and that people are a star in their own right, but what the fuck do I know? Quite obviously, not a goddamn thing because I too, am pissing in the goddamn wind and I don’t fucking like the taste of piss, not even my own; champagne drenched that it is. Oh that’s right! How dare I drink champagne. That’s a drink for the whites to use to toast at some prestigious affair that raised money to feed the homeless and we all know that Black families are seven times more likely to be homeless and that Blacks make up half of the U.S. homeless population. Thank you white folks,! How extremely white of you to do that especially since you own every goddamn thing anyway thanks in part to the history of this shithole called America where your ancestors slithered over here and stole land, enslaved Black people and now, you’re throwing a benefit to help those poor Blacks who never could own a goddamn thing seeing as how we was owned. But we get the blame for that by the ever so nice whites, smiling at us and patting us on our fucking nappy ass head because it’s such a shame that Black people have such rough and kinky hair. “Oh Belinda White, did you feel that child’s hair? What in the world? My stars. No wonder they’re considered three-fifths human! We got that one right!”

Yeah! So, let me sit back here behind the dumpster with my nappy ass hair and scratch myself because all Black folks are nasty and we stink! And now, I am going to open up this here Colt 45 Malt liquor and take a good long swig because that is what I do. I lounge around and drink all day and then I go down to the welfare office and fill out forms and start at the beginning of when I took my first shit so that they can hand me some free food stamps and then I promptly take those free food stamps and I sell ’em and I buy myself another Colt 45 malt liquor. I just love being drunk and stinky and to get free stuff that the good old angelic whites never berate me for. Seriously? How fucking useless can I get? Since I can’t be white and angelic and godlike and sainted and good and clean and kind because we all know that’s why white folks are here; to fucking be all of that and so much more that’s right as rain.

Black folks we are doomed and we doomed ourselves because we ain’t angelic looking. We’ve got to be white for that to happen and don’t even bother with that skin lightening shit because you’ve got to be born with their kind of white, it doesn’t come out of a bottle. Come on over here with me Black folks and I’ll hand you some malt liquor. What else are we good for, eh? So, here’s to taking the edge off. Because when you can’t BE ’em, don’t fuck ’em!  Just fucking forget ’em!

Now have a  good goddamn Happy Black History Month! Bottoms up!

 

 

The State of the Union Speech…for real!

SOTU

First of all, let me be clear, I did not look at the State of the Union speech last night, but here is my take on it.

“My fellow Americans, let me be clear. I love you all and I love America! We are at a turning point in America’s history. I have created so many unemployed people, that I have been contacted by the Guinness Book of World Records for this submission. I have closed so many retail stores, I believe I have broken another record. I have drone struck so many innocent people in foreign lands that our drone program is in no danger of ending. I have deposed so many other evil dictators, the world is a much safer place, especially in Libya and Iraq. That mess I got started over in Ukraine, uh, I mean…that Putin got started over in Ukraine is going just as planned. Venezuela is feeling our wrath and will continue to do so until they realize just who is in charge of their country. I have opened relations with Cuba for our, uh, their benefit. Oil production is at an all-time high and our shale industry is doing great. In fact, I just received a thank you letter from some folks in Texas who haven’t yet received their lay-off notices. Real bad Black folks who were caught with a dime bag of weed on them will be incarcerated for 30 years and so white folks, go ahead and take that deep sigh of relief. The prison industrial complex is in full swing and mostly privatized as that is what free market enterprise is all about. The government should not corner the market. There are enough prisoners to fill all institutions. There is no need for more schools since our poor are in prison. There is no need to pass legislation to rein in Wall Street as they are great at overseeing what they do. Those folks are the best.

We have several distinguished guests with us tonight. First up, we have Jack Black who wrote a letter to Santa begging him to let him get an education and grow up to be a successful entrepreneur. His greatest hope is that he does not find himself on the business end of an AK-47 held by New York’s finest in blue. And I am here to help him with his dreams of entrepreneurship because my Administration has approved $20.00 in funding for new business enterprises for Black inner city youth and this young man should have the ability to open as many shoeshine stands on the streets of New York City as is possible for him to realize his dream.

As you all are aware, we just celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and I must say, Dr. King visited me in my dreams last night and thanked me for the wonderful job that I am doing in increasing unemployment in Black communities all across America. Dr. King praised me for increasing child poverty to unprecedented levels because even Dr. King understood the premise of pulling yourselves up by your very own bootstraps. He could never tolerate slackers. Look how much marching he did. That was quite a stretch, marching from Selma to Montgomery. Dr. King realized that the rich prop the economy up and that serfs and peasants are needed and therefore, we have created a nice little niche for said serfs and peasants to slave away all day long; cleaning the toilets of the rich, handing them their lattes across the counters of Starbucks, ringing up their purchases at Nordstrom’s and of course, bowing and scraping to them as they dust and vacuum their homes.

At the start of my first term, I did what I had to do and that is why not one Wall Street thug that caused the economic collapse went to jail because those thugs are necessary to uphold the very foundation of the economic status of millions of Americans. How else could Americans lose their homes? These self-sacrificing thugs are up all night swilling champagne and trying to formulate plans to make more Americans homeless because that builds character and if I may go back to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for a minute. Dr. King said, “Do not judge me by the color of my skin, but by the content of my character.” So, as you can see, my inspiration tonight comes from Dr. K. Wassup man? Dr. King was all for building on character. Don’t worry about your skin color. I am half Black and half white and I stand before you as president of the greatest militarized country on the planet. If we maintain our military, then we don’t need to fund food stamp programs. Seniors can take cuts in their Social Security benefits and the Disabled can join our military in the bullet making department. We even have openings at various drone sites all across the country. Even a senior citizen can put some bi-focal glasses on, cite innocent foreign targets and with the touch of a button, send them to hell. These are mean times we live in folks. We’ve created so many terrorists that we just may have to reinstitute the draft. By doing so, we will put more people to work because we have jobs available in the military for the blind, crippled and the crazy. Hell! That’s what we turn our service men and women into anyway and we need some fresh blood ‘cause the troops ain’t looking so great.

We have another distinguished guest with us tonight. This lady from Little Rock, Arkansas wrote to me about her need for housing. Joan Bloomers, where are you? Oh, there you are. Please, let her out of the cage so that she can acknowledge my acknowledgement of her. I thought I told you Joe to prepare a bath for Ms. Bloomers. The homeless shelter she is staying at has bedbugs and lice and no hot showers. Thank you for your letter Ms. Bloomers, now back inside your cage, if you will! Now, I know what some of you are thinking. John Rabid Dog McCain has twelve houses and I bet that he would not even miss one and could therefore, give one of his homes to Ms. Bloomers here. You know what? I wouldn’t even think of asking John Rabid Dog McCain to give up not even one of his homes because well, why should he? Ms. Bloomers needs the assistance of her community and since I was a community organizer, I am well aware that the community should have come together to provide some assistance for Ms. Bloomers’ housing needs. HUD is underfunded due to the needs of our military and unfortunately for Ms. Bloomers, I cannot offer her a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher at this time. Be patient, Ms. Bloomers and patience is its own reward. Have faith in your Lord and Savior Ms. Bloomers and know that he shall deliver you out of the cold of winter and into the warmth of the Pearly Gates.

And in closing, let me say, fellow Americans, I take much pride in informing you that I intend to start a new two year community college program for all 2nd graders. This program will be funded through tax increases on the class that used to be the middle class but has now descended into the underprivileged class, but not to worry folks. After the 2nd graders take the TAS standardized entrance tests for the two year community college program, that will weed out the wheat from the chaff and only the brightest minds will be qualified. They will be the exceptional ones and as you all know, we here in America, pride ourselves on our exceptionalism. So remember, my fellow Americans, I have decreased high paying jobs, I have increased the need for food stamps. I have increased child poverty by leaps and bounds. I have committed more war crimes than I can shake a stick at and all that I have done is because of my love for America. We shall continue to reign as the most impoverished but the most militarized, warring nation on the face of this planet. Our motto is, “We came, we saw, we conquered, we blew it up and we went back and we blew it up again!” Now take that ISIS AND Vladimir Putin!

God bless America! And thanks to me, may God help the American people! Thank you!”

“I Make Thirty-Eight Thousand Dollars A Year!”

Wages

Before taxes, I make thirty-eight thousand dollars a year.
My wife is filing for food stamps before the check can clear.

My job is stressful and my family, I never get to see.
When my son was born, I was killing another family.

You see, I made a commitment to kill or be killed.
And for thirteen years, I’ve never left the battlefield.

Soon, my son will be a grown man and what will I tell him?
“To be a man son, see those people over there, kill them!”

“Take my place and get your thirty-eight thousand dollars too
and when your son is born, tell him what I told you!”

…..on and on, it goes…..

Cannon fodder! You don’t have a problem with this?

In what world does an annual salary of $174,000 meet the definition of underpaid?

That would be in the nation’s capital, where soon-to-be-retired Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., said Americans should know that their members of Congress — as the board of directors for the “largest economic entity in the world” — are underpaid.

http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2014/04/04/299078253/congressmans-lament-174-000-isnt-enough-to-make-ends-meet

…or this?

More military families used food stamps to buy milk, cheese, meat and bread at military grocers last year.

Food stamp redemption at military grocers has been rising steadily since the beginning of the recession in 2008. Nearly $104 million worth of food stamps was redeemed at military commissaries in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30.

Base pay for a new soldier with a spouse and kid is around $20,000, just above the poverty line (No wonder you qualify for food stamps).

http://money.cnn.com/2014/02/17/news/economy/military-food-stamps/

You signed up to kill or be killed and some piece of shit congressional ‘representative’ ain’t paid enough but he has no problem voting to send you off to die while he sits back in what should be comfortable retirement, but he feels underpaid. You on the other hand, start out with a wife and child ‘earning’ $20,000 and eligible for food stamps. It is quite apparent that the U.S. military is not too picky in choosing their cannon fodder because quite frankly anyone who would go for this set-up is crazy! For real!!!!

“Russia! Level This Shithole Already!”

Dumitru Duduman-Russian-invasion-of-america-mystery-babylon

I want to thank all the Russian visitors that are reading this here blog! Please make a note that there are at least 25 of us Americans who do know that Russia is not responsible for what is occurring in Ukraine. Those 25 of us also know who IS responsible for the Neo-Nazi shit stirring that was unleased in Ukraine. We also recognize that Crimea has elected to return to Mother Russia and we are most happy with that decision as that is what democracy is all about. You see, here in America, we have no idea what democracy is all about because if we did, we would be wailing and screeching from every dilapidated bridge about the fact that we have no fucking rights left. We should be wailing and screeching in front of every federal, state and local building that was paid for by our tax dollars that those assholes in Washington are pissing away in Ukraine because we’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, homeless, jobless and hungry.

The stupid military shits shouldn’t even be manning the torpedoes, so to speak, but they are because those military shits are so stupid that even with their families starving due to the low military wages and a recent cut, AGAIN, in food stamps, the fucking stupid military shits are still going at it. Apparently, they just love fighting for the sake of fighting wars started by rich fucks that sit around making a killing off destruction. I know! I know! Not a bit of this is making sense. You see, that’s the problem. Nothing in America makes sense. We’re not about making sense these days. Hasn’t been a lick ‘o sense being displayed for some time now, at least outside of the 25 or so Americans that are aware of what the hell is going on, but who can’t pry the millions of Americans away from their tools of distraction. I am absolutely certain that at least 98 percent of the stupid Americans couldn’t even tell you where Ukraine is, much less where Crimea is. Yep, we got some real dumb fucks over here in America, never you doubt it. But then, you already know that because why else would we silently go along with what this fucked up government is trying to get started all the way over there where you guys are? You see, Americans like to pop ‘happy’ pills and play all day. Many are just not up to the task of using their brain and many have forgotten that they even have a brain as that is what their ‘smartphone’ is for.

Even though most of our bridges are about to collapse and many of our roads end in sinkholes and our electric grid is antiquated and our water is polluted thanks to fracking, chemical spills and whatnot and even though entire towns have been wiped off the map due to pollution levels so bad the situation could no longer be ignored by the EPA and you should understand that the EPA officials usually just can’t be bothered to concern themselves with the health and safety of the environment. Hell! The environment don’t mean shit to the EPA, but of course, to be fair, the EPA’s hands are tied up, good and tight. But nevertheless, we’ve got so many serious issues that need to be addressed here in America and the thing is, they’re never going to get addressed. Wanna know why? The reason being that since the majority of Americans are pill popping, hypnotized brain dead zombies and filled with American exceptionalism, there’s no hue and cry coming from them, so why should their ‘elected’ officials fucking care about the fact that millions of Americans are hungry, jobless, homeless and sick? We got ourselves a big old case of austerity going on, but we can somehow find money to fund the war machine and to pretend like we’re coming to the ‘aid’ of another country that’s just so hard up and all, you know, like what’s going down in Crimea? America has plunked billions down in Ukraine because Ukraine is so in need and America is so goddamn benevolent and caring and concerned and considerate. And if you buy that load of horse shit, put down the smartphone ’cause you obviously ain’t using your brain! America don’t give shit without some serious ass strings attached.

Make no mistake, we ain’t about no peace and we ain’t about playing fair and square. America never has played fair and square like. Ask the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Venezuela, Brazil, Guatemala, Iran, Syria, and the list just goes on and on and on. And now, what is standing between total world dominance by the fucks that run America? Yep, you guessed it! Russia! If Russia, Brazil, China, India and South Africa decide to do away with the American dollar, well that puts paid to America’s ass and the fucks that run this sinking stinking shithole barge ain’t hardly happy about that! Oh hell no! So now, they’ve got to fuck with Russia and let’s not forget that the Obama Administration is still pissed off over Russia coming to the rescue when Obama drew a redline with Syria and the fact that Russia is harboring Edward Snowden. You guys ain’t making the American elected shits look good and they can’t have that. They’re starting to show cracks around the edges and now that 25 Americans ain’t buying what Washington is selling, the elected shits are thinking that people in other countries are going to realize that America ain’t about shit and can’t even keep its own house in order, which it can’t, but that fact isn’t supposed to be well-known.

So as you can see, we do indeed got some problems here in America, but you wouldn’t think so because we’re not concentrating on what needs to be done to prop up America. We are just too busy inserting our nose in places where it’s not wanted. America’s political shits just got to have their hand in every country’s cookie jar, stealing everything that ain’t nailed down and absconding with it. America is swimming in debt to the tune of $16,787,451,118,147 and yet, America has money to throw around in Ukraine? Yep, because America just creates money out of thin air. The entire economic system of America is a magician’s dream; a magic act and like all magic shows, it must come to an end. And that is why; I beseech you guys in Russia to put an end to this freak show, once and for all. The world is tired of America. The world can’t afford America because what America wants from the world is just, EVERYTHING! Get to the business of ending the reign of this shithole called, America before it ends the world. Would ya? Thank you!

Label Me, Unpatriotic, PLEASE!

flag

I am unpatriotic because I hate what America is doing to many Americans and because I hate what America is doing to the world. Label me, unpatriotic, PLEASE!

When I looked up the word, patriotic, this is the definition:

1. having or expressing devotion to and vigorous support for one’s country.

So, I am unpatriotic because I fail to express devotion and vigorous support for the elite fucks who are fucking up said country and not even stopping there, but fucking up the entire planet. Label me, unpatriotic, PLEASE!

Tell me, who in Washington is patriotic? How about our elected representatives? Those who have lined their pockets with bribes and kickbacks from the ‘corporations are people’ corporations? If they were so patriotic, they would not have bailed out the bankers that engaged in criminal activity to the point of causing an economic collapse. If they were so patriotic, they would have prosecuted those criminals and bailed out the American people. But instead, the banks were deemed too big to fail and the bankers that caused the economic collapse were deemed too important to jail. Not one banker that caused the collapse of the banking industry has yet to be prosecuted. Now, ain’t that just patriotic? Label me, unpatriotic, PLEASE!

When jobless benefits expired for over two million Americans on December 28th 2013, what did the patriots do in Washington? Did they promptly restore the benefits? Huh? What? I can’t hear you? I’ll look it up. Uh…no! They decided that it would cost too much to bail out those two million long-term jobless Americans because it was the patriotic thing to do. What happened next? Oh my bad! I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s step back in time to October 2013. What happened in October of that same year? Food stamps were cut because the 2009 stimulus bill expired, the stimulus that was intended to boost economic activity due to the economic collapse of 2007-2008 when the ‘depression’ started. Now, fast forward to 2014 and the long-term jobless are still jobless and without jobless benefits because guess what? The patriots in Washington think that it’s more fitting to prop up the economy of Ukraine than it is to prop up the economy of the country that they are paid to ‘vigorously support’ and you know…be patriotic to, and that would be, America.

It sounds to me like our Washington patriots are actually patriots of Ukraine because if they’re vigorously supporting Ukraine while hanging Americans out to dry, then they are Ukrainian patriots, not American patriots. What the fuck are they doing collecting a salary from U.S. when they are representing Ukraine? How the fuck is Ukraine the goddamn business of America’s congress? What goddamn business is it of despot Obama of what goes on in Ukraine? Ukraine has not threatened America. Ukraine was never once a part of America. Why is Ukraine more important than jobs or job aid for Americans? Why is Ukraine more important than food assistance for those jobless Americans? Why did our patriots in Washington spend $5 billion to assist in the destabilization of Ukraine? Why did our congressional patriots hand another billion over to Ukraine to prop up Ukraine’s economy? How ‘patriotic’ of them to help Ukraine while fucking over Americans.

So, throwing around the word, patriotic, means not a goddamn thing because the shits who strut around in Washington and who sport an American flag on their lapel, ain’t about shit when it comes to ‘expressing devotion or vigorously supporting’ America. How useless it is to call yourself patriotic when you’re doing everything in your power to bring a country to its knees and you’ve damn near succeeded? How patriotic is it to prop up another country’s economy and fuck up the one that’s paying your goddamn salary and paying for your goddamn designer health care coverage that most Americans can’t lay claim to? How fucking patriotic is that?

How many times have Americans been told by their piece of shit patriotic president, that they just need to work hard and good things will happen? When are the ‘good’ things gonna start happening? When are the patriotic bankers gonna get that epiphany and stop foreclosing on the homes of patriotic Americans who just happened to lose their job and their jobless benefits? When are the patriotic corporations going to start hiring American workers and stop outsourcing American jobs? When is it going to become patriotic to produce American made products that Americans will buy? When are Americans going to act patriotic and refuse to buy anything but American made products? Go ahead and wave that American flag to show how patriotic you are. You know the one, it’s made in China.

Oh, and one last thing! Label me unpatriotic, PLEASE!, because here in America, patriotism is nothing but pure, unadulterated, bullshit! You damn sure can’t eat it! You can’t live in it and like hell if it’ll keep your cold ass, warm! And when you get sick, take patriotism to the doctor and see how much medical care, it’ll get ya! Then come on in here and let me know how well that worked out for 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!

Eat Shit, You Corporate Swine!

Walmart

You bit the hand that fed the corporate bottom line.
What comes around, goes around; eat shit you corporate swine!

Food stamps have been cut and no jobs are to be found,
with none to feed your greed, your stock will hit the ground.

You need a human shopper that no robot can replace,
a two-way street it is and you thought you held the ace.

Get ready for a fall, motherfuckers that you are.
And when you bottom out, that fall will leave a scar!

…and the corporations think that they hold all the trump cards. Well…when people have no money to spend, just what the hell did they think would happen? Exactly what IS happening!

http://money.msn.com/top-stocks/post–wal-mart-the-latest-sign-retail-is-reeling

fourth-quarter earnings worse than expected
Battered big-box stores
Target has been suffering (I wonder why, like hell I do!)
Macy’s (M -1.32%) saw sales grow by low single digits in 2014 and in 2014, for instance. And don’t even get me started on Sears (SHLD -0.36%) or JC Penney (JCP +2.60%).
Best Buy had another rough quarter after an ugly holiday sales report.

…and the writer of this article thinks that this ‘bad’ news for stores has everything to do with online shopping as opposed to ‘brick and mortar’ shopping. Somehow, I don’t think that’s it. The simple fact is that people are not shopping because they are broke and the safety net has been gutted. The unemployed have given up and the homeless certainly ain’t shopping. So, they can fool themselves until hell freezes over, but the reality is that between the corporate owned asses called politicians and Wall Street, they’ve managed to cause their own downward spiral. And far as I am concerned, they can just eat shit!

We Gave Up So Easily!

This is what getting your ass kicked looks like. Get used to it.

This is what having your ass kicked looks like. Get used to it.

There was a time when I believed in the goodness of mankind.
But ‘humans’ have no goodness and to this, I am resigned.

We gave up so easily and now we look the other way
if they beat the poor and homeless; we don’t even show dismay.

When the truth is just ignored and the battle weary die,
and if we say that we will fight for them, of course that is a lie!

Who is outraged, or angered, or crazed enough to act?
When we sag in helpless misery; that’s our answer to the smack.

If the jobless lose their homes, no help can they expect.
The people’s voice was silenced, dissent was put in check.

When the hungry go without and the wealthy kick their ass,
they divide us into groups; the middle and lower class.

We eat that shit and run with it and sling it against the wall.
There’ll never be a movement where we stand for one and all.

We’ve lost and we must recognize that we did this to ourselves.
There are no trophies for the losers, just empty, dusty shelves.

When all is said and done, they’ve got us on the run.
Dark days are dead ahead and you’ll forget there was a sun.

From now on, I am going to write about sex and foolishness because we have had our asses kicked and kicked royally. And what do we do? We whimper and we say that we are fighting? Really? How? When? Where? Who? Oh, that’s right! We’re going to vote! Wow! Yep, we really win when we do that, don’t we? Isn’t that why we’re in the sinking boat that we’re in? Because we vote for thugs and then re-elect thugs? Correct me if I’m wrong, but what have we really done to fight back? Hmmm? The world is in chaos! People are fucked up in _________<—insert just about ANY country and a bell will go 'ding! ding'! Actually, we are ding dings because we are practically comatose since that IS how ya fight isn't it? You just close your eyes, fall down and the bully will go onto the next. That's what's happening isn't it? I mean the Americans gave up and decided that it was in their best interest to get felt up and radiated in order to keep the shadowy bogey gubmint made up terrorist at bay and board that airplane, isn't that right? Americans piss about drone strikes and spying and war crimes and whatnot and then when the gubmint looks in their direction, they simply close their eyes and fall to the ground in helpless surrender. A budget deal was reached that included untold billions to keep wars going and uncontrolled spying, but somehow, the American gubmint just couldn't come up with a bipartisan plan that included extending benefits for those 1.3 million Americans who make up the long-term unemployed. And as much writing as I've done on the plight of the homeless, can you actually see me attempting to put poems together to cover even half of the 1.3 million Americans who will end up homeless right at a time when food stamps have been cut? And the rich? Well…never mind them. We love 'em. Meanwhile, we're 'Wowed'!, over the SAG awards, the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the whores of Hollywood, the playoffs are on and the Super Bowl is in a few weeks. So, we're good!
