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!

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 a 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 us, 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 would ever strike on cue!

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!

On Memorial Day, War Is ALWAYS Such A Blessing!

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 our ‘freedoms’ that we hold so dear such as the freedom to be arrested for committing NO crime and getting murdered as a result, such as was the case with Freddie Gray. Freddie Gray is not here to celebrate this day in remembrance of AmeriKKKa’s war dead because he is dead and who the hell knows why? What did Freddie Gray do wrong? I mean, he was in AmeriKKKa, right? Home of the ‘FREE’? The reason we are celebrating this day thanks to ALL those who died to give us these ‘freedoms’! Right? So, why is Freddie Gray, dead? I’ll leave this alone for awhile because I know some of you are confused and need some time to come up with THE answer; the RIGHT answer!

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?

In Memory…….

In memory 2

In memory of the dead, who were sent to war
In memory of the dead, yet to be sent to war
In memory of the dead, who sent them to war
In memory of the dead, who will send you to war
In memory of the dead, who were bred for war
In memory of the dead, yet to be bred for war
In memory of peace that has yet to be the result of war

Do I really need to explain this???!!!!

Huddled In My Cloak Of Widowhood

huddled

I will always remember you,
on this day over all other days.
A country that had always hated you
took your life and left me, your kids to raise.

Even in war, segregation was maintained.
You were not even equal in a combat zone.
But you gave your life anyway.
And all that’s left of you is a flag and a tombstone.

I knew you when you laughed and loved
but not the you who learned to shoot to kill.
And our children will never understand my pain
or the heartache that is a war widow’s bitter pill.

So many decades have come and gone.
And still, young men are sent to die.
It would seem that no one is paying attention.
They just heed yet another battle cry.

For some, today is all about hotdogs.
And for others, a day off is just as good.
But for me, I will spend this day alone,
huddled in my cloak of widowhood.

This Military ‘Hero’ Needs A Defense Fund!

Denton

Read the article and then contact the Sullivan County Sheriff’s office in Sullivan County Tennessee and ask for this military hero’s inmate number and mail him some money for commissary. Also, his bail has been set at $1 million and so let’s get it paid since we voiced NOT one complaint when the U.S. military was training him to become a hired killer. We should have no complaints or whines about paying for his release so that we can host a parade for this military hero in every city and in every state in the land of patriotic, hypocritical bullshit!

Outfitted in camouflage and armed with a high-powered rifle and 100 rounds of ammunition, Robert Seth Denton fatally shot his mother, stepfather and grandmother while six children witnessed the carnage in the family’s double-wide mobile home in eastern Tennessee, a sheriff said Monday.

The 19-year-old suspect then went outside, laid down his weapon and camouflage jacket and walked to a neighboring trailer, where he told his grandfather he needed to call 911, Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson said.

Denton was charged with three counts of first-degree murder, aggravated assault and felony reckless endangerment.

Oh for crying out loud!!! What’s a little first-degree murder? What’s a little aggravated assault? What’s a little reckless endangerment? This is what we paid him to do! Why do we expect him to be able to differentiate between the ‘good’ guys and the ‘bad’ guys after we have turned him into a ‘killing machine’? This military hero should NOT be cooling his heels inside a jail. Now, where are the Veteran’s Day flag-waving morons that sit on the sidelines and cheer for heroes such as this one? Where are all the Memorial Day flag-waving morons that sit on the sidelines, eating hot dogs, apple pie and waving that patriotic rag, called the American flag? This hero could surely use your help in his hour of need. What is he guilty of? Murder? Why, MURDER is sanctioned by YOU! You would be ‘thanking’ him if he had killed some folks in the Middle East! What’s the problem? He can kill THEM, but not YOU? What makes YOU special? “You’re ‘family’,” you say! Well, apparently, someone was TOO late in telling Robert Seth Denton! And look at his mug shot! Not a hair out of place after having murdered three family members, been shot by his grandfather, taken to the hospital, treated for a gunshot wound to his arm AND arrested.  Do you have ANY idea what a Negro would be looking like right about now if HE had done THIS to a Caucasian family? Of course you do! He’d have been riddled with bullets and looking like Swiss cheese on a slab in the morgue and don’t you know it! But it was an obvious case of ‘easy does it’ with this Caucasian military hero! Now, get out your wallets and ‘bail’ this hero out!

“We have gained a lot of information that he has hated his mother for most of his life,” Anderson said. “He had made statements … over the years that he wanted to kill her.”

Authorities said the suspect had served a short stint in the Army, but didn’t provide any details about his work history outside the military.

Now, THAT is interesting. This military hero ‘hated his mother for most of his life’, and did nothing about it until he ‘had served a short stint in the Army’. Hmmmm….I am just NOT getting the connection! Is anybody getting the connection? Say what? The connection is that he already had feelings of ‘hatred’ for his mother and then the U.S. military trained him to be a killer and now it’s, “Bye-bye mommy and step-daddy AND granny!”

Robert Seth Denton, military hero, was only 19. It is my understanding that he could not have joined the military until he was 18 and at 19, he is in jail for murdering his mother, his stepfather and his granny? All I can say is, “He sure as hell learned quick!” Did he take the Army’s ‘Accelerated Killer Training Course’? Let me get this straight, he joined the Army at age 18 and at age 19, he is arrested for murdering three relatives while most of his siblings looked on. My guess would be that the silver lining to all of this is that he did not turn the gun on his siblings and their visitor and murder them as well.

A relative of the victim is questioning, “Why?”

“The question I have is: why? Why did he do it to them?” she said.

I have a suggestion, call Obama, he was this young man’s Commander-in-Chief and ask him why! Ask him why AmeriKKKa suits up her youngest and most fragile, turns them into killers and then lets them loose on unsuspecting people. Ask Barack Obama and John McCain and Lindsey Graham why your relatives are dead. Ask the other warmongers why your relatives are dead. Ask the AmeriKKKan people why they insist on worshipping killers; touting them as heroes and warriors for killing innocent people in foreign lands, but when they bust a cap all up in an AmeriKKKan ass, it is considered to be such a tragedy. No it’s not! Because if you consider this to be a tragedy then you would not continue to condone the training of your youth to kill. You would not continue to aid and abet this shit by celebrating with hotdogs, apple pie and parades that honor these trained killers!

Did you honestly think that the killing fever would leave them once they left boot camp? Once they returned from overseas military deployments? Once they have been taught to kill, kill, kill? Are you fucking serious?

Cleveland officer not guilty over deaths of two people shot at 137 times by police

killer cop

Brelo, 31, joined the Cleveland police department in 2007, having served in the marine corps in Iraq. He was charged with two counts of voluntary manslaughter. Each count can carry a sentence of three to eight years in prison.

Brelo’s trial resulted from a police chase on 29 November 2012, when Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell led police on a 20-minute pursuit that involved 60 police cars and about 100 police officers. The chase began when their car, a 1979 Chevy Malibu, apparently backfired as it passed police headquarters in downtown Cleveland. THE NOISE WAS MISTAKEN FOR A GUNSHOT!!!!

Because of a fucked up car backfiring, these two Negroes, Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell, were executed by an ex-marine turned killer cop and cleared of manslaughter charges! WHY? Of course no one is asking why this happened to these two because they had criminal records and so that right there gives Officer K.K. Klan every excuse in the world to execute them. And I will state it again. Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell were EXECUTED BECAUSE THEIR FUCKED UP CAR HAD THE AUDACITY TO BACKFIRE IN FRONT OF ‘OFFICIAL KLAN HEADQUARTERS’! That was against THE LAW AND PUNISHABLE BY FIRING SQUAD, which commenced all on their ass. Their car backfired, it was discovered that they were Negroes and it took 60 official Klan cars and about 100 official Klan officers to chase them and this particular piece of filth, Klan-Brelo, thanks to his MARINE, training went above and beyond the call of his ‘nigger killing duty’ and jumped up on the hood of the piece of shit vehicle and EXECUTED two negroes by firing his gun 49 times through the windshield at these two unarmed passengers who were shot at at least 137 times by the ‘official nigger killers’.
“Malissa and Timothy, there is no reason in the world for me to wish that you are resting in peace, for how could you?” And it would be no comfort for you to know that these military whores are also coming back from deployments or from boot camp and filling their own family members with bullets. It would be no comfort to you at all, but they are doing it and they will continue!”

Malissa Williams and Timothy Russell

If only Robert Seth Denton had joined the police force, he would be walking free!

 

So, continue to celebrate your flaming hypocrisy AmeriKKKa! Continue to consider yourselves to be blameless in what you enable, honor and worship and you will also continue to ask the question, “Why?” when the shit hits the fan, but ONLY when it hits the fan over some Caucasoid murdering his own family. Hug your killer boyfriends and husbands and sons and nephews when they step off the plane or when they return to you from ‘boot camp’. Yeah, you hug those killers and get out the Stars and Stripes and wave it back and forth, thanking them for killing you because YOU’RE NEXT!

Now, write in your will that you want to ‘thank’ ALL military personnel for their service in busting a cap all up in your ass! Bequeath to them some more of your money for commissary and bail because they are heroes, doncha know and then you can ‘rest in your peaceful dead slumber’, you stupid AmeriKKKan motherfuckers!

Happy Memorial Day To ISIS!

ISIS flagHappy Memorial Day to ISIS!
May you continue kicking ass.
I fly your flag on my front porch
and Uncle Sam can kiss MY ass!

The bombs are raining down
and here we celebrate our dead.
It’s now your turn to feel our wrath.
I’m why Middle Eastern blood is shed.

This here day is for the whores
that died on foreign shores
so that I can sit back
and watch parades and eat some chocolate s’mores.

We have learned not one damn thing
or so to me it would seem.
We’re in Iraq and Afghanistan
trying to spread America’s dream.

Don’t kid yourselves that you hate war.
If you did, where would you be?
Would you be in Iraq and Afghanistan
or would you be home with me?

Yeah! I know, I am SO disrespectful! Bite me! What’s more disrespectful and hypocritical is the fact that the flag waving morons in America will set aside days to honor the ‘war dead’ but refuse to actually HONOR the ‘war dead’ by refusing to add to their numbers. So, while you wave your American flag, I’ll be waving the flag of ISIS. While you are downing apple pie and hotdogs, I’ll be sipping champagne and toasting ISIS! Kick ass ISIS! Kick ass! Oh and head on over to Saudi Arabia, they just love beheading over there since they’re the supreme beheaders. You’ve got to up the ante if you want to reign as the champion of all beheaders.

“Allahu Akbar!Death to the West!”

Let’s Fucking Celebrate!

Throw a hotdog on the grill for him. It'll end his homelessness.
Throw a hotdog on the grill for him. It’ll end his homelessness.


So, you want to honor the grateful war dead?
But you never put an end to why so many tears are shed.

Stop feeding the warmongers lust for power.
We fight for some shits who sit in an ivory tower.

Why the hell is ‘friendly fire’ such a fucking good thing?
And ‘collateral damage’ has a great sounding ring!

Get that goddamn modified hotdog down.
And wave a ‘made in China’ flag all over town.

What is there really to celebrate?
America’s desperate need to dominate?

Homeless vets walk the goddamn streets.
And here you sit eating Memorial Day treats.

What a goddamn way to memorialize the dead,
by ignoring homeless vets who are fucked up in the head.

You celebrate the rich who are swilling champagne,
while the families of the fallen are living with the pain.

Enjoy this holiday and throw some meat on the grill.
While those who made it home, don’t have a decent meal.

You’re so fucking hypocritical when you celebrate this day.
And tomorrow, a homeless vet, won’t have a place to stay!

Yeah! Let’s fucking celebrate! ‘Cause ain’t a goddamn veteran, homeless, hungry, mentally ill and some more shit! So, let’s fucking celebrate how fucking grateful we are to those who’ve died all over some bullshit and for those who make it back home, we are so fucking fine with their status of being fucked up and homeless. Eat a goddamn hot dog for THEM!! Fire up the grill and then pass some more laws tomorrow to make it more and more difficult for them to be homeless.

America is filled with some stupid ass shits! And I ain’t fucking bragging, I’m just fucking sayin’!!! We are celebrating!!!!

Memorial Day!

memorial-day-cost

Men and women died for those who hoard the wealth.
And that is why this weekend, we celebrate their death.

Eat your hotdogs, hamburgers, steak and baked beans
And pretend that you don’t know what war really means.

Display the stars and stripes and lay a wreath on a grave.
Our soldiers fought the enemy, oh they were so brave.

They sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy.
The enemy just won’t die, there’s always someone to destroy.

We celebrate the dead who need not have died.
We gorge ourselves on hate, intolerance and pride.

If the dead could speak to us, we’d not celebrate this day.
They’d question why a death in vain deserves a holiday.

Soldiers, keep fighting the wars started by the rich. Maybe one day, they’ll hand you more than $20,000 a year, food stamps and a flag to drape over your coffin. Yes, keep fighting and keep hoping for more and meanwhile, we’ll celebrate your sacrifice on Memorial Day. We’ll eat a hotdog in anticipation of ‘in loving memory’ of you because it’s only a matter of time before you’re in a flag draped box.
