#BLACKLIVESMATTER, A Diversionary Tactic!

Blacklivesmatter1

 

Has anyone asked the question, “Has there been a noticeable decrease in police murders of Black people since #BLACKLIVESMATTER arrived on the scene?”

Without even bothering to add links, I can answer that. No! There has been no decrease, noticeable or otherwise, in police murders of Black people since #BLACKLIVESMATTER arrived on the scene. And if you need proof,’archive’ this blog to your heart’s content.

#BLACKLIVESMATTER is just a diversionary tactic used to divert Black people away from what we should be doing. It is the same tactic that was used during the Civil Rights Movement when Black unrest was at an all-time high and Black militant groups were gaining members by the hundreds. Along comes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his merry band of tireless protesters, complete with pictures of Black people getting hosed down, pictures of dogs sicced on them; the whole nine yards.

“Be peaceful about it, Black folks! Don’t fuck shit up! Don’t burn shit down! Let’s sit down and talk calmly and quietly about that ‘whites only’ water fountain and that ‘whites only’ restaurant entrance and the ‘blacks only’ water fountain and the ‘blacks only’ restaurant entrance and so forth and so on. If you must protest, then go about it all peaceful like. Take this here Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as an example. We have trained him well. He is all dressed up in a suit and tie, carrying a bible and giving eloquent speeches of his dreams. We don’t give a shit for his dreams, but hey! He is allowed to dream and that is all he is allowed to do. We have him in a jail cell right now, just a’dreaming and some more shit. But he is useful, see? He is the calm and that is what we want, not the storm!”

Fast forward to today and along comes the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement right when Black folks are getting beyond fed the fuck up with the ever mounting statistics of Black people getting themselves murdered by racist ass KKKops and for no other reason than over the color of their skin. Yet again, Black people are stopped in their tracks from fucking shit up and burning shit down by the sight of protesters, AGAIN, marching with fifty year-old protest signs that have been dusted off and brought out into the light of day in the year of no lord 2015. #BLACKLIVESMATTER is being used as a diversion to deter Black people from going the fuck off by showing them that the way to go about effecting change is to continue with the same lame ass protesting and marching that Dr. King and his crew engaged in.

Let me ask you another question. What did Martin Luther King Jr., and crew accomplish back in the 1960s? Did not the Supreme Court just recently gut the hell out of the Voting Rights Act of 1965? Indeed it did. But you say, “There are no ‘whites’ or ‘Blacks’ only water fountains and restaurants anymore? Really? I’ll put it to you this way, those signs are no longer needed and here’s why. Check the price of lunch at an exclusive country club, restaurant or hotel, can you afford it? Here is a hint. The ‘official’ unemployment rate for Black men is 12.4%, but we all know THAT’S a lie! So, when you cannot afford to keep a roof over your head, you sure as hell cannot afford to pay for lunch in an upscale eating establishment. And ‘white’ folks, don’t even bother coming up in here exclaiming that you can’t either. Cry me a river! This ain’t about you! Maybe everything else is, but not this! It is certainly not MY fault that your own kind left some of you in the dust! Deal with it! You’ve still got less to deal with than we do!

But I digress! Back on topic. When the people started burning shit down in Baltimore during the Freddie Gray riots, the National Guard was called in, a curfew was enacted and the long arm of the KKKlaw nipped that shit in the bud with militarized armored vehicles that had been deployed in actual war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq. The sole purpose was to prevent a halt to capitalism; that which makes the world go round. When you halt capitalism, you fuck up the white man’s day. He can’t have that. The wheels of capitalism must grind because that is how he gets his huge ass bonus check; that is why the stockholders laugh all the way to the goddamn bank. Put a halt to that shit and nobody’s laughing. So, to put you in check, Black people, a new ‘movement’ was introduced, #BLACKLIVESMATTER! It is designed to make you think that you are doing something constructive about all of the shit that is flung at you. It is designed to make sure that you continue to ‘peacefully’ march down the goddamn street and do nothing to starve the beast called, “Capitalism!” It is to ensure your quiet quiescence to the continuation of slavery. Slaves are needed in prison to fill all the orders for capitalism’s expansion. Slaves are also necessary to be picked bone dry by debt collectors, payday loan companies, furniture rental stores and the like. You have only two purposes; one is to be a slave in every way and the other one is to die because it has been estimated that in the not too distant future, the white man will become the minority in AmeriKKKa. He cannot have that. The white man wants his cake and he wants to eat it too. This means that you must play by his rules and if you don’t, then you must die. But then, you must die anyway because the world contains more Black and Brown bodies than it does white ones. Why do you think that wars were started in the Middle East? Oh, in some respects, oil has something to do with it, but it is about much more than that. ISIS is just another diversionary tactic used by the white man to kill off even more of the Brown-skinned variety while enhancing capitalism in the form of weapons for those wars of naked aggression. I mean..uh.. those ‘humanitarian’ wars of naked aggression Oh he’s good! I’ll give him that. He is evil’s own spawn!

If you have fallen for the diversionary tactic that is #BLACKLIVESMATTER, then you can just stop. You can put down your protest sign. You can put away your marching shoes, they won’t do you any good. They are not supposed to. The only thing #BLACKLIVESMATTER is good for is to make you think that you are doing something constructive about police murder of Black people, racism, police brutality, a school-to-prison pipeline, income inequality, mass unemployment and underemployment otherwise known as ‘low-wage jobs, homelessness, addiction and mass incarceration. But you’re not doing a goddamn thing about any of that. You are only pissing in the wind. How does it taste?

As The U.S. Military Continues To Protect The Poppy Plant In Afghanistan, Meanwhile….

prison in Afghanistan

…the Afghan Taliban just released hundreds of prisoners and nearly half of those ‘released’ were deemed to be a ‘ national security threat’.

The interior ministry said that 355 of the 436 prisoners had escaped.
Of those who got away, 148 were a “threat to national security and 207 were criminals”, the ministry said in a statement.

Taliban insurgents stormed a prison in Afghanistan on Monday, killing police and releasing more than 350 inmates, including nearly 150 deemed a threat to national security.

Let me just interject here for a moment. The Obama Administration left some 10,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan to in his words, “We are essentially moving the drawdown pace over to the right for several months … in part because we want to make sure we are doing everything we can to help the Afghan security forces succeed, so we don’t have to go back, so we don’t have to respond in an emergency because terrorist activities are being launched out of Afghanistan.”

My question to Obama is “where were the badly needed U.S. military reinforcements when this Taliban prison busting event took place?” Oh, never mind! I think I found out what the U.S. military was engaged in while this prison breakout was occurring.

us military guarding poppy fields

https://shelbycourtland.wordpress.com/2014/12/29/the-war-in-afghanistan-is-not-over/

Now, let’s get back to this ‘threat to national security’ by the freeing of these horrible criminals. So, apparently, those of us in the U.S. are to expect to be on ‘high alert’ because a few of these guys are going to get some more fake ass passports, board a plane from neighboring Uzbekistan or Pakistan, manage to get a ‘meet and greet’ with the captain and the co-pilot, sit in the cockpit with them throughout the entire flight all the while taking notes on how to fly an airbus. They are then going to land in America, take three more flying lessons, learn some judo and karate, board three more planes and with knives that are approved by the TSA, take over these planes and fly them into the White House, the Capitol building and the National Monument and mysteriously, one of their passports will be found in the wreckage, completely intact; identifying him as being a member of the Taliban and one of the escaped prisoners that was freed by the Taliban while the U.S. military was still occupying Afghanistan but was otherwise occupied by protecting the poppy plants that when harvested will be given a free flight straight to the U.S.

“Oh, I’m sorry! What did you say?”

“The escaped prisoners are a “national security threat” to Afghanistan!”

“How so?”

“Because they(the Taliban)would like to destroy the poppy plants and get those goddamn American drug peddlers out of Afghanistan.”

“And THEY(the Taliban)are the BAD guys? Get the fuck outta here!”

I found this to be quite interesting, although not surprising.

It is well-documented that the U.S. government has – at least at some times in some parts of the world – protected drug operations.(Big American banks also launder money for drug cartels. See this, this, this and this. Indeed, drug dealers kept the banking system afloat during the depths of the 2008 financial crisis. And the U.S. drug money laundering is continuing to this day.)

The U.S. military has openly said that it is protecting Afghani poppy fields:

As Wikipedia notes:

Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001.

Indeed, a brand new report from the United Nations finds that opium production is at an all-time high.

Common Dreams notes:

The cultivation of opium poppy in Afghanistan—a nation under the military control of US and NATO forces for more than twelve years—has risen to an all-time high, according to the 2013 Afghanistan Opium Survey released Wednesday by the United Nations.

According to the report, cultivation of poppy across the war-torn nation rose 36 per cent in 2013 and total opium production amounted to 5,500 tons, up by almost a half since 2012.

“This has never been witnessed before in the history of Afghanistan,” said Jean-Luc Lemahieu, the outgoing leader of the Afghanistan office of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, which produced the report.

Drug war? What ‘drug war’ is right!

So, to the stupid, clueless, brain dead Americans, get your head out of your ass and wake up to the fact that your stinking ass government is aiding and abetting in the cultivation, processing and distribution of the drugs that you are arrested for, especially Negro people. Your government is the reason why your son, daughter, niece, nephew, father or mother is strung-out on heroin.

The motherfuckers that you worship and hail as heroes are doing nothing more than babysitting some poppy plants and sending them over here to feed your addiction. Do your own research and find out why you’re fucked up and newsfucking flash, it’s got nothing whatsoever to do with some made-up enemy that the U.S. government has called al-Qaeda or the Taliban or al-Nusra Front or even ISIS or ISIL. Because you can thank your CIA for the growth of ISIS since they trained them, gave them weapons and let them loose and now can’t control them. So, the CIA then produced some real good videos of white men getting their heads lopped off and that got you back on board with shouting for more war games in the Middle East because those horrible brown-skinned insurgents are just so goddamn bad. Here’s another newsfucking flash, they are just as bad as those that trained them and Americans, take a good damn look in the mirror because you’re no better. YOU ARE ONE AND THE SAME! Don’t believe it? Wait for the next motherfucker to off his family or kill his own child. Yeah, read this and weep!

Still not convinced? Don’t worry, your turn is coming because you can ignore what you don’t want to believe but when your military hero worshipped killer busts some caps all up in your ass, that’ll make a believer out of you. When you’re shedding crocodile tears because your daughter just overdosed on heroin, that’ll make a believer out of you but then again, knowing how stupid Americans are, you’ll just continue drinking the Kool-Aid and blame it ALL on the Taliban!

 

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!”

Happy International Women’s Day??!!! Are You Fucking Kidding??!!

IWD

Women all over the world, this is such a great day in the year of no lord 2015. We celebrate the fact that in America, women have produced a nation of killers and these killers are without conscience or heart and women gave birth to that shit. So, pat yourselves on the goddamn back and celebrate International Women’s Day here in America over the fucked up offspring that you produced and let loose on an unsuspecting world.

Is International Women’s Day celebrated in Yemen, you know, where the innocent children of other women are getting killed by drones that are guided by the twisted shit born to women in America? Will International Women’s Day be celebrated in Iraq since over a million innocent Iraqi people have been killed, had their homes blown up, been raped by the sons of American women who are busily celebrating International Women’s Day by driving to the mall, gassing up the SUV, going to the tanning salon, treating themselves to a latte at Starbucks, because no bombs are destroying the women of America. No drones are destroying their fucked up offspring. No grenade launchers are aimed at their sprawling McMansions because here in America, the women are ‘exceptional’ and therefore, have the greatest reason in the world to celebrate International Women’s Day while women all across the Middle East are huddled in makeshift dwellings, are walking with their children(the ones that haven’t been blown to bits by the U.S)to refugee camps. Are these women in any frame of mind to celebrate International Women’s Day? Are they in any shape to celebrate a day in their honor because after all, it is not called National American Women’s Day, but International Women’s Day.

And goddamn it, I forgot to mention the women in Libya. They have much to celebrate this International Women’s Day because all hell has been let loose over there because just when they thought that they had been ‘liberated’ from their ‘dictator’, Muammar Gaddafi, along comes the U.S. and NATO forces and now Libya is in flames and the women and children in that country have been displaced by, AGAIN, the nasty, vile ass offspring of American women who of course, are celebrating this day in their honor since International Women’s Day is all about American women who produce all of those brave drone operators, who produce all of those nasty shits that pissed on dead Afghan bodies. Oh damn! I forgot to mention the shit stirring that’s been going on in Afghanistan. How could I forget? Those really nice-nasty fucked up American whore shits that got ejected from between the filthy ass legs of American women, opened their pants, pulled out a shriveled dick and proceeded to use that dick to piss on dead Afghan corpses. Wow! Celebrate what you produced and, AGAIN, let loose on an unsuspecting world.

Motherfucking women of Great Britain, I’m not leaving you out of this International Women’s Day love fest because your offspring ain’t no goddamn better than what’s hatched over here in AmeriKKKa! So, belt up about that bleeding shit that you’ve managed to produce that’s probably missing more teeth than the reddest redneck in the hillbilly southern states of America. Tell your National Health Services to come up off some damn money to fix your goddamn teeth. But then, many of the women of Great Britain are just drunken sots anyway and the men as well, so who is looking in whose mouth when you’re going at it, tooth and nail to produce that vile shit that runs helter-skelter all over the world alongside the Americans, fucking up people in other countries? You ain’t about shit either and Bob’s your uncle!

Have I left anyone out? Oh the French! I know how the women of France are celebrating this International Women’s Day, they’re celebrating it by drinking wine and buying up every single copy of Charlie Hebdo that they can get their wine-stained hands on. You whorish sluts produce shit that’s already an addict when it’s born and all you say is, “C’est la vie!” How surprising! Not!

Never let me forget the Australians! You worthless motherfucking women over there are the product of convicts and so what can be expected from you other than the way you treat the Aborigines; you know, the original inhabitants of Australia; those indigenous to Australia before your convict ancestors were shipped there from jolly old England and now you want to pretend as if your nasty ass shit don’t stink as you look askance at the Aborigines and how many of them have been killed off in a genocide by your depraved offspring? And does Botany Bay penal colony ring a bell? I thought so! Now, go out and celebrate International Women’s Day, you fucking convict rejects!

Let’s all celebrate International Women’s Day! Everybody in the mood? Great! Now fucking celebrate!

The Draft Is Being Reinstituted On January 1, 2016!

the draft

Update: March 2, 2017, Sweden Brings Back The Military Draft!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-39140100

The Swedish government has decided to reintroduce military conscription – a move backed by the country’s MPs.

Conscription is being brought back due to the Russian Illegal Annexation of Crimea, the conflict in Ukraine and the increased military activity in our neighborhood.

Thirteen thousand men and women will undergo military tests and will be treated equally.

June 15, 2016 Update: Senate Votes to Require Women to Register for the Draft! June 15, 2016 Update: Senate Votes to Require Women to Register for the Draft!

WASHINGTON — In the latest and perhaps decisive battle over the role of women in the military, Congress is embroiled in an increasingly intense debate over whether they should have to register for the draft when they turn 18.

On Tuesday, the Senate approved an expansive military policy bill that would for the first time require young women to register for the draft. The shift, while fiercely opposed by some conservative lawmakers and interest groups, had surprisingly broad support among Republican leaders and women in both parties.

“The fact is,” said Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona and the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, “every single leader in this country, both men and women, members of the military leadership, believe that it’s fair since we opened up all aspects of the military to women that they would also be registering for Selective Services.”

Still think the U.S. is not gearing up for war? Call that war hawk, John McCain and ask him if his ‘service’ to this country was so great, then why did he have his POW records sealed? But he is sure gung ho about women registering for the Draft.

Veterans voice their disgust for John “Songbird” McCain who spilled his guts to get out of being tortured. There is evidence that McCain received ‘special’ medical treatment from a Soviet physician and other ‘considerations’ to avoid being tortured just so he could come home. 

Yeah! Thank that namby-pamby shit his pants ‘war hero’ for his service of singing like a bird in order to avoid torture. But he has no problem sending America’s daughters into war when there is the potential for them to be captured and tortured. But in all actuality, we should not have a problem getting tortured if we get captured seeing as how we have no problem torturing captives. Just ask those who were tortured in Abu Ghraib by U.S. soldiers and those who are still being tortured in Guantanamo.  You could just consider it to be a case of “what comes around, goes around.”

Again, still think the U.S. is not gearing up for war? Still think this is a joke? Russia has warned the U.S. and NATO, (and NATO takes its orders from the U.S.), to not continue to ignore their warnings and so has China but those warnings fall on deaf ears. The Russians have war weapons that the U.S. cannot even detect until it is too late. Because you see, it does not matter how much we spend on our military, what matters is the technology that is used by the U.S. military and that technology is not up to par.

How to Build a $400 Billion F-35 That Doesn’t Fly

The Pentagon’s embattled F-35 Joint Strike Fighter continues to be plagued with so many problems that it can’t even pass the most basic requirements needed to fly in combat, despite soaring roughly $170 billion over budget. 

Yeah! We’re SO ready for war, they’ve spent $400 Billion of our tax dollars on F-35s that cannot even get off the ground! I guess we are supposed to sit in the cockpit and look tough! That’ll stop the Russians and the Chinese! Right! Ha! Prepare to have your ass handed to you by the Russians and the Chinese and hell! If Bangladesh hears about this, they’ll probably want in on the action seeing as how the U.S. military will be sitting ducks. This is rich!

“EVERY AMERICAN WHO’S PHYSICALLY QUALIFIED SHOULD REGISTER FOR THE DRAFT!Update: Army and Marine Corps chiefs say, “It’s time for women to register for the draft!”  Not only that, but they’ve gone on to say that “EVERY AMERICAN WHO’S PHYSICALLY QUALIFIED SHOULD REGISTER FOR THE DRAFT! This is to include ALL refugees! So, to all the women out there, it’s time to put up or shut up. You’re all for equal rights, now you’ve gotten your wish! You can equally get a grenade up your ass same as your husband, brother, boyfriend, father or uncle. The generals have spoken and now it is not just members of congress on board calling for a reinstating of the draft, but also top military brass.

We are headed for war and soon everybody’s ass will be on the line and in line training for combat duty. And this is also why refugees are welcome in America because the refugees are needed to fight alongside the Americans because if we go to war against China, we are going to need every able bodied or half-ass bodied person available seeing as how America only has 300 million people to pick from and China has 1.357 BILLION people and America has the nerve to tell China to get out of the South China Sea? Yes, war is inevitable. Enjoy yourselves while you still can!

Gen. Mark A. Milley, chief of staff of the Army, and Gen. Robert B. Neller, the Marine Corps commandant, both said they were in favor of the change during an occasionally contentious Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the forthcoming full integration of women in the military. They offered their opinions in response to a question from Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who said that she also is in favor of the change.

“Senator, it’s my personal view that, based on this lifting of restrictions… every American who’s physically qualified should register for the draft,” Neller said.

Due to America’s ongoing war with every other nation and country on the planet, legislation has been introduced by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and co-sponsored by Diane Feinstein of California that would reinstitute the draft on January 1, 2016. Although the bill is in its early stages, support for the bill is rapidly gaining traction and sponsors. The only difference from previous drafts is that the Selective Service System will begin on August 1, 2015 to require all men and women between the ages of 18-75 to register so that the draft can be reinstituted on January 1, 2016.

Although a public outcry is expected, this action is necessary to keep America safe from the terrorists that have gained a major foothold in the Middle East. Also Ukraine is in need of boots on the ground and as NATO is stretched thin in Ukraine and Libya, there really was no choice. A spokesman for Ted Cruz had this to say, “I know that what Ted is proposing will not be popular among the upper echelons of society. We deem it necessary to take such measures to ensure that the U.S. is fully protected. Since the age requirements have been changed, we do not expect that those over the age of 65 will actually see combat. Their job will be to cook and bathe the forehead of the wounded. Those who are 66-75 will clean the weapons that will be used in battle. They will also transport necessary supplies to those who are engaged in combat. There will be no religious, college or first child deferments. No one between the ages of 18-75 will be exempt. A special provision will be attached that will make it legal for all past and present day presidents to take part in the draft if they are within the stated age bracket. Of course, there will be a special detail assigned to all presidents that are forced to take their place on the battlefield. This new provision has been put forward and has backing thanks in part to Diane Feinstein since it was her suggestion that if presidents are so willing to send others into battle that they should also be prepared to take up weapons in defense of America.”

I cannot believe this is happening because was it only yesterday that I was exchanging comments with a fellow blogger on the need to reinstitute the draft and it was like they read our minds. See the conversation below:

I am aiming for reinstituting of the draft and see as you put it, ALL HELL BREAK LOOSE! Wouldn’t that be something? And no excuses for the children of that shit in congress. And since women are now very much in the military picture, let’s see if Obama doesn’t mind his daughter who will be 18 in two years get conscripted. He is fine with sending other peoples children to war, let’s see if he’s ready to send his own.

And quite honestly, presidents shouldn’t be exempt. Obama looks able-bodied, he can go and so can McCain. If he’s got enough spunk to be a war hawk then he can have his ass dragged on over and participate in what he starts. There will be NO deferments for religion or college since religion be damned and who the hell is learning anything? The only thing college students are doing is waiting tables after having amassed a shitload of student loan debt and moved back in with their parents.

So, yes indeed, reinstitute the draft and see how many changes take place. You don’t see no anti-war protesters out in force now, but goddamn it, when the children of the ‘upper crust’ are lying dead and bloodied alongside the abject poverty stricken who see no way out of poverty other than to join the military, well things would change quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry. As long as the poor are the ones that are getting blown to bits and who are coming back all fucked up, nobody gives a goddamn, but let’s up the ante and make war, equal opportunity, yes indeed. None of this bullshit about “my back is bothering me and I can’t go!” Put a goddamn back brace on and get out there on the battlefield. No more “I can’t fight a war because I need to preach some Mormon bullshit in France!” Fuck that! Preach some Mormon bullshit to your fellow comrades while you’re running with a grenade launcher in hand and if your motherfucking ass stumble and fall at least the last thing you did was fucking pray, so you good than a motherfucker. That was for Mitt Romney that never did see a minute of fighting in Vietnam because he claimed to be much needed in France preaching Mormon bullshit to the French, all holed up in le château.

And Dick Cheney sought five draft deferments during the Vietnam War, four was for going to college and one was because someone actually allowed his nasty ass to hump them and produce a baby and so he claimed, ‘new father’ deferment. He fucking bent over backwards to not go and fight in a war but yet he and Bush both lied and got over a million people killed in the Iraq war all over a lie! And people can’t see the hypocrisy of these cowardly assholes? They can’t see that Dick Cheney is a mealy mouthed liar and lower than a snake’s belly when he can speak of torturing people and yet his namby-pamby ass was scared too shitless to don a military uniform and get in the fray? For the love of …..!!!!

If people can’t find jobs, it is because the government is deliberately making sure along with corporations that there are no jobs available for everyone that wants to work and therefore, they make people have to think about signing up for the military when there would be plenty of work for all if America would concentrate on the neglected shit that’s been neglected for decades and actually fix up this shithole. That would put millions of people to work but no, we are more interested in starting wars in foreign lands and sign on the dotted line and here’s your military gear, now head the fuck out! I’d rather clean toilets and bend over fields of strawberries and green peppers than pick up a weapon and have some innocent person’s death on my hands. I understand poverty, hunger and not having medical insurance, all too well. I have been there but never did I think of joining the military as a way out of my situation. There are just some things that I am not willing to do and being a hired killer, prostituting myself to the warmongers, ain’t something that I’m prepared to live with on my conscience or die for.

And now, I expect that the pissing and moaning over all of this will begin!

I Put America Up For Sale!

america for sale1

I make promises all too easily.
Why should a conscience be my guide?
When I break each and every one of them,
I then blame the other side.

I promised hope and change,
and to close Guantanamo.
But now I blame it all on congress.
They are my eternal foe.

When I had the votes to get it done,
I just pissed two years away,
And now my legacy is in the toilet.
Behold, my feet of clay.

There is blood upon my hands,
from the innocent I did bury
underneath the desert sands;
those found guilty by no jury.

I am the judge and executioner;
the harbinger of death.
I bow before my masters.
For them, I’ll sink to any depth.

I am a father to my children,
and a husband to my wife.
And yet I aid and abet,
in the taking of a life.

Don’t ever make a promise,
that you know you will not keep.
Never promise hope and change,
when you’re willing to sell it cheap.

I have made my bed and it is soft.
My nest is feathered well.
I did what I had to do.
I put America up for sale.

When Barack Obama first ascended to the presidency, the Democrats controlled the House and the Senate. The time to get things done would have been that two year period when he had the votes necessary, but his focus was on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that was eventually signed into law with much fanfare, but did little in the way of relieving so many Americans of the high cost of health care. People are still losing their homes and going bankrupt if they become seriously ill and there are many who fall in the gap of ineligibility. We have here a lack of hope and change.

And yet, where is the concern over the high cost of incarceration? It costs approximately $40,000 a year to house just one inmate and yet schools are closing for lack of available funds. But no one has suggested closing prisons when many are incarcerated due to mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines, “three-strikes” laws and the so-called, war on drugs, which usually means, low-level drug offenders caught with trace amounts of drugs on them, instead of being cited, they are locked up. With an estimated 2.3 million people incarcerated in America and the majority of them are African-American and Hispanic, prison has become the new slave pen. How is it that the U.S. has 5 percent of the world’s population but nearly a quarter of all of its prisoners? Answer: Because they’re Black and Brown people, that’s why. Again, what we have here is a lack of hope and change.

As we all know, segregation is still in play and with the fact of that, we now have what is called,’ the school-to-prison pipeline where mostly inner city children of color are herded from the classroom straight into the juvenile and criminal justice system. They are not to learn, they are to head straight to jail and remain there. That’ll cut down on the need for funding for education especially since the funding for education is being funneled into the criminal justice system. You see any signs of hope and change here? No, just more signs of America up for sale in the form of America’s children for sale to the prison industrial complex.

Although there is no way to accurately count the number of homeless people, those who are attempting to do so, have posted statistics that are shatteringly horrific. According to an article in the Huffington Post, the number of homeless children in America has surged to an all time high and show no signs of abating. More hope and change?

And wasn’t Obama against dumb wars? As opposed to what? Smart wars? All wars are dumb wars because bombing people never solved anything. Ask those pesky ‘terrorists’ that just keep popping up in countries that America has bombed to smithereens and then went back to do it again or never even left to begin with. And let’s not forget the deposing of legitimate leaders if not outright murder of other nation’s leaders. Obama has certainly been heavy-handed with those damn killer drones and it would appear that the innocent are the target because innocent people are targeted for ‘extermination’. Got to keep the warmongers happy. Over 2,400 innocent people are dead because we voted for hope and change and what we got was ‘criminally insane’! Barack Obama, another sell-out, a war criminal, a liar, a hypocrite, a murderer never intended to bring hope or change to the ‘business as usual’ status quo in Washington. Those of us who voted for him are more than likely ashamed that we did so. We were duped because we wanted to believe that there was a chance for change and now we know that there is no hope for change.

Yes, Barack Obama put America up for sale and in the process drenched her with the blood of innocents while the drums of war beat on.

Let’s See How Much You Sneer!

bloodless bastard

 

 

 

 

You are the poster child for torture.

And yet, you never miss a beat.

You’d torture your own mother,

and you’d demand a front row seat.

 

When I look at evil’s face,

your mug shot should appear.

And behind stout prison walls,

your ass should disappear.

 

Why can’t you breathe your last

and save us all the trouble

of waiting for your death?

But I bet you’ve got a double.

 

You’re a cold, bloodless bastard.

And what’s more, you’re so damn proud,

of how you got away with torture,

as though you walk upon a cloud.

 

 

The likes of you, I have never seen.

And whatever put you here.

I wish it’d claim your ass,

then let’s see how much you sneer!

Cheney on Interrogation Tactics TORTURE: ‘I Would Do It Again in a Minute’

Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday continued his fierce defense of harsh CIA interrogation tactics TORTURE used in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, saying flatly that he “would do it again in a minute.”

The former vice president added that he was not concerned about the capture or interrogation TORTURE of foreign nationals who were ultimately revealed to be innocent.

..and about rectal rehydration? “I believe it was done for medical reasons” — a notion that has been questioned by medical experts.

The former vice president also hit back against the report’s claim that President George W. Bush was misled about the extent of the practices.

“This man knew what we were doing,” he said, outlining daily briefings that included the president, the CIA director and himself. “He authorized it. He approved it.”

Here we sit, wondering why ISIS and IS and The Backyard Beheader’s Club and Beheader’s Anonymous groups are gaining traction via membership drives from countries all across the world, if the lamestream media is to be believed. I do not wonder why America has so many enemies. I would be America’s enemy too if shit like this was sitting somewhere condoning torture and trying to put a spin on it and call it, ‘interrogation tactics’. They can do the dirt without even flinching but to sell it to the stupid sheeple called Americans, they’ve got to pretty it up and call it ‘interrogation tactics’. It was TORTURE, goddamn it! Plain and simple, it was TORTURE! They detained and TORTURED INNOCENT people and they continuously place the blame on 9/11 as if that excuses all war crimes, torture and detaining of innocent people in prison hells for years without due process. That makes it alright! WRONG!! So, America is going to forever claim to take the ‘high road’ and deem TORTURE a necessity because of 9/11? And quite actually, it is working. Tout out 9/11 and there’s your free pass to TORTURE. There’s your free pass to FORCE FEEDING SOMEONE THROUGH THEIR ASS! There’s your free pass to DETAIN SOMEONE AND TORTURE THEM INTO CONFESSING WITHOUT A LAWYER PRESENT! Did you get that? This is what America stands for! How much bravery is displayed by Americans when they are torturing helpless captives? How can we claim to stand for freedom when we deny people their freedom just because we can? How can we claim a moral superiority when we have no morals? When we have no scruples? This is the home of the brave? Are you fucking kidding me? Dick Cheney probably is wetting himself through a diaper when looking at the photos of tortured assholes, fried genitals and dead, staring eyes because those people weren’t guilty, they’re scapegoats for lascivious eunuchs that can only get their jollies off by extreme masochistic shit!

God DAMN AMERICA!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s All Done By Design!

imagesGT29FKUE

When white men get beheaded,
it’s off to war we go.
They won’t ever behead Black men.
‘Cause even ISIS ain’t that slow.

Would ISIS behead a Black man?
If so, they’d need a new plan.
They know America wouldn’t go to war.
Are you kidding? What the hell for?

So even ISIS knows the deal,
that’s why no Black man did they kill.
Didn’t a white man’s chopped-off head,
cause hate for Muslims to spread?

To all Black men in the U. S.A.
don’t look at ISIS with dismay.
There’d be no ransom paid for you,
but you know that’s nothing new!

These are made-up enemies,
and for this year’s nominees,
ISIS went to the head of the line,
and it’s all done by design.

The media played its part,
’cause Americans ain’t real smart.
They sent a white man to sell this war,
and it worked just like before.

Black men in America, this is one thing that you don’t have to worry about, getting beheaded by a made-up enemy by your so-called ‘government.’ They know how to get the American sheeple stirred up and there would have been no support for this war on Iraq and Syria if some Black journalists had gone and got themselves beheaded. This shit in America know just how to get people in line and as I’ve said, it works every time ’cause Americans are stupid and that ain’t about to change!

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!

Don’t Mess With U.S. ISIS!

Question: Which picture 'depicts' Obama? Answer: Both

Question: Which picture ‘depicts’ Obama?
Answer: Both

“ISIS, as President of the United States, I am warning you that it would not be in your groups best interest to mess with the U.S. We don’t take kindly to other people messing around and threatening us. You guys and gals need to realize that the U.S. is capable of handling any threat that should land on our shores but we prefer to handle it in your backyard. And that is why we are going to take the fight to you in your neck of the woods because we know it so well after having invaded Iraq for no reason and bombed the hell out of that country and freed them from the evil dictator, Saddam Hussein. They’ve yet to thank us for that, but as always, we are willing to overlook the fact that no country has ever thanked us for trying to bring our form of democracy to it. We know very well what we are doing because we’ve bombed Iraq three times already and we haven’t been able to get anything done, accomplished, fixed, fixed up, stabilized and democratized. We know how to stabilize that region, we’re just testing the waters. Just ask the people of Afghanistan and Libya. Look at what great strides we have made in both places. Afghanistan is now a peaceful poppy heaven and since we murdered Muammar Gaddafi, things have settled down quite nicely in Libya.

We understand the difficult challenges that come with being the worlds’ police but we are up to the challenges. We are all up on our game and never think any different. We have formed a coalition of the willing to ‘degrade and destroy’ you. We will degrade you by pulling your pants down in public and spank you right in front of your mothers. We are sick and tired of you beheading people who are just reporting on the ongoing issues that we have been trying to get straightened out in the Middle East. You have no cause to behead people. Just because Saudi Arabia beheads people on an almost daily basis, that is no excuse for you to mimic their humanitarian form of punishment. We prefer that you water board them. Strip them naked and hook them up to electrodes and jolt them with say…50,000 volts of electricity. We also would prefer that you gently put them to sleep before murdering them by giving them a lethal injection that sometimes takes two hours from the time we give them a lethal injection to the time they wheeze several hundred times and finally die as that is the humane way to go about it. Just ask Joseph Rudolph Wood III. Oh, that’s right, we can’t as he finally did die after two hours of wheezing in his death throes. We are so humane.

And another thing ISIS, we produce thermo nuclear weapons of mass destruction and so again, you don’t really want to mess with U.S. because we ensure that no one; no terrorist, no group of crazed fanatics is going to ever have the means to infiltrate our superior and advanced high tech security systems that are used to guard any complex that houses our weapons grade uranium that we use in those thermo nuclear weapons of mass destruction. Just ask Sister Megan Rice, an 83 year old nun who, with her Geritol crew posse used some bolt cutters and a hammer and infiltrated the state-of-the-art high grade security at our nuclear weapons complex that was designed to ignore little old lady nuns with box cutters, hammers and human blood. How dare she deface our weapons complex in that fashion. But we showed Sister Rice and posse, oh yes we did. Now they are cooling their heels in one of our ‘for profit prisons’ and they ain’t hardly happy at all about making license plates. That’ll show ’em. You don’t mess with the U.S. because danggone it, we are always up on our game.

So, ISIS, who’s your daddy? We made you and we can break you! When you refused to continue to play by our rules, you signed your death certificate and now that we have shown those videos of you beheading Americans, well…everyone here in America is on board with us bombing the hell out of any country in the Middle East to get back at you because here in America, we are the ‘exceptional’, the few, the proud, the great ones. Feel our wrath as we bomb you into oblivion and to the Syrian people, you were warned before we started bombing you that we were going to bomb you. See how thoughtful we are? We didn’t have to give you guys a heads-up but we’re just so nice and all. But don’t mistake our niceness for weakness. Just ask Joseph Rudolph Wood III. My bad, I keep forgetting that he’s dead. Well in that case, write a letter to Sister Megan Rice. She’ll tell ya. Don’t mess with us ISIS!”
