Bomb This Hellhole To Bits!

Not one American was gassed
And so America bombed Syria because..
 Well, these things just should not be done.
After all, there are international laws.

What applies to America is unique.
There are none so exceptional as we
who were not gassed by no terrorists we trained,
but we still bombed a foreign country.

Some things just make no sense at all.
America refused Syria’s refugees
who were escaping a war torn land
brought on by our own tragedies.

Now let’s turn this all around.
Did America not gas the Iraqis?
And it was okay when we gassed the Vietnamese
and then say, “We are better than the Nazis.”

Tell that to the dead Vietnamese.
 Or have you forgotten all about Napalm?
Our selective amnesia is telling
when we can forget about a Napalm bomb.

White phosphorous, the Iraqis will never forget.
How can they when we are still there?
We bombed them over a big ass lie
since those WMDs are where?

Hiroshima and Nagasaki were cities
bombed by the US of A.
How many people did we kill?
And we still think that was okay!

We are all American dogs
who drool and piss and shit
on a planet of people at will
and we all deserve a direct hit!

So China, Iran and North Korea,
Russia and even Bangladesh
bomb this hellhole to bits!
Maybe this world can then start, afresh!

Unfortunately, I shall not get my wish that Russia, Iran, North Korea and China will blow this hellhole to kingdom come, but I can still keep hope alive.

So, Donald Trump has initiated what amounts to déjà vu because didn’t we go over this already about Assad using sarin gas during Obama’s reign? And what happened? It was found that the Assad government did not gas their own people, the rebels that America’s CIA trained did that, but even so, Russia stepped in and helped to broker a deal that relieved the Assad government of any chemical weapons it may have had and yet, here we are again. Donald Trump is just so disturbed at the thought of little children getting gassed that he just could not contain himself and so sent 59 missiles to do what? Kill more innocent little children? Because that is what happened, isn’t it? Civilians were killed by those U.S. missiles and so where is the outrage from Trump about that?

That no good bastard is not even outraged that the U. S. Department of Justice issued a scathing report on Baltimore’s police force due to the fact of rampant and systemic excessive use of force and police brutality against a majority Black city. In fact, Attorney General, Jeff Sessions stated that, “the consent decree would keep the KKKops from doing their job of continuing to brutalize, racial profile and fuck up Black folks on a regular basis just ’cause they should!”

And here we have all these pasty-faced motherfuckers just declaring how horrid it is for Assad to gas his own people when these same pasty-faced assholes would rather see me dead just because my skin tone is dark. Don’t that fucking beat all? Talk about this shithole drowning in hypocrisy, America is the very definition of hypocrisy from one end of this cesspool of corruption to the other. And here we sit, biting our nails and hoping there’s to be no draft. My post titled, “The Draft Is Being Reinstituted On January 1st, 2016! is the number one post because you scared ass pieces of whiny assed exceptionally brain dead cretins are shaking in your cowboy boots and wife beaters over the possibility of you having to get up off your fat ass and get it handed to you by the Russians and the Chinese. You don’t have to worry about being drafted because you’re fucking useless, what with a needle stuck in your damn arm loaded with heroin and who knows what the hell else. Your fat ass can’t even fit in the cockpit of a fighter jet because you’re too damn lazy to even get up off the couch and turn the channel on the TV. The only thing you’re good for is nothing! Ain’t no use for you whatsoever. So quite actually, if a bomb was to land squarely in your fucking living room, it’d be doing you a favor by sending you to meet your fairytale maker sitting up in the sky waiting to receive your worthless ass, or so says your slimy piece of shit reverend; the snake oil selling bastard! Yeah, a bomb would quite actually be good for you because it’d put you out of your sorry ass misery. I wish they would send a bomb up the ass of every single piece of American filth and think I don’t mean that, you sorry ass filthy fuckers!

Shamed Into The Gutter!


The end of unemployment checks for more than a million people on Saturday is driving out-of-work Americans to consider selling cars, moving and taking minimum wage work after already slashing household budgets and pawning personal possessions to make ends meet.

While the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress want to continue the program, the extensions were dropped from a budget deal struck earlier this month and Republican lawmakers have balked at its $26 billion annual cost.

Richard Mattos, 59, of Salem, Ore., has been out of work since March.”I don’t know what we’re going to do,” he said. “We could end up homeless because of this.”

Republican Senator Rand Paul stated that extending the unemployment benefits would be a “disservice” to those out of work by giving them less of an incentive to rejoin the workforce more quickly.

The proposal by Reed, a Rhode Island Democrat, and Heller, a Nevada Republican, would extend the federal unemployment benefits for three months. <—Wow! That is touching! Three WHOLE months! Say “thank you!” “Here’s your bone!” Will somebody, ANYBODY….tell those fucking clowns that there just ain’t no goddamn jobs!

Republicans have argued that the federal unemployment benefits were always meant to be temporary and that the program would add to the deficit unless offset by reductions in spending elsewhere in the budget.

So, let me get this straight, it would be a ‘disservice’ to those who are unemployed, for them to continue to receive benefits to keep them from becoming homeless and sick because….? Yes…? Huh….? Why…? What the fuck!!!

U.S. government spent about $718 billion on defense and international security assistance in 2011 — more than it spent on Medicare. That includes all of the Pentagon’s underlying costs as well as the price tag for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which came to $159 billion in 2011. It also includes arms transfers to foreign governments.

Let me interject here AGAIN, I have a suggestion; cut defense spending and that should also include spending for the CIA to arm and train rebel forces in foreign lands to overthrow foreign leaders. Why not cut the ‘drone’ program? Nah! The name of the game is ‘Destroy’!


Shamed into the gutter
and told to just get by.
You’re a multi-billion dollar waste,
and you don’t wonder why.

It’s sad and you should know,
they’ve thrown the gauntlet down.
And tossed to you a 3-month bone,
oh please, send in the clowns.

You’re jobless and a drain,
can’t even pull your weight.
No deadbeats get our help,
we’ll leave you to your fate.

Sort it out or just get out!
Go join the homeless, do!
You’ll not recognize your feet,
once we get done with you!

We’ll lock you up and fuck you up!
Poverty is a crime!
In this military state,
it’s the poor who do the time!

When congress meets again,
‘Randy’ goat will steal the show.
He’ll decry that you’re a drain,
so out in the cold, you go!

Get ready for what’s coming!
Look lively there and all.
Think not of what you had,
into that gutter, won’t you crawl?

Obama:A Study In Contradiction a Nobel Peace Prize laureate. So how is striking Syria going to help restore peace?
…is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate. So how is striking Syria going to help restore peace?
During an April 2007 speech to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Obama said the U.S. cannot try to “bully [the world] into submission.”

In a 2007 essay in Foreign Affairs, he specifically warned about breaking off from European allies: “In the case of Europe, we dismissed European reservations about the wisdom and necessity of the Iraq war.”

Read more:

During his July 2008 campaign speech in Berlin, Obama told Europeans that “no one nation, no matter how large or powerful, can defeat such challenges alone.” He warned that “on both sides of the Atlantic, we have drifted apart, and forgotten our shared destiny” and that neither America nor Europe can “turn inward.”

He was the peace candidate who became a war president, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who has regularly ordered executions by drone.

Just three months ago, President Barack Obama called for an end to America’s “perpetual war-time footing.” On Saturday, he said he had decided to take military action against Syria.

“But if we really do want to turn away from taking appropriate action in the face of such an unspeakable outrage, then we must acknowledge the costs of doing nothing,” he said.

There is a crucial difference: Obama is contemplating several days of cruise missile strikes, not a ground invasion. That, critics say, is the conundrum: What can be achieved by such a limited application of force?

For a man who entered the White House in 2009 promising a swift withdrawal from Iraq and a new era of multilateralism after eight years of the Bush administration’s “cowboy diplomacy”, the predicament could hardly be more poignant.

Obama has hardly been, or presented himself, as a pacifist. While running for office, he declared his opposition only to “dumb wars,” not all of them. And he continued the fight his predecessor had begun against al Qaeda, only with different means.

In May, against a background of civilian casualties from the drone strikes, growing anti-American sentiment and escalating criticism of the use of drones at home, Obama narrowed the targeted-killing campaign, saying it was time to step back from a “boundless global war on terror.” But the strikes continued.

At the same time, any strikes on Syria may give Obama political problems during his last three years in office with the anti-war camp that helped elect him in 2008 and re-elect him last November.

I an still unsure as to how the U.S. government can declare war on a country that has not targeted any U.S. citizen, has not even attempted to launch a missile to engage in military action against the U.S. I have read that the Obama Administration’s reasoning for military strikes against Syria is that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against its citizens. I have stated this before and I must state it again. So has the U.S. government, many times over! The U.S. government sent troops to Vietnam and sprayed the Vietnamese people and their country with Agent Orange, napalmed them and we did not stop there. Napalm was also used in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. What I would like to know is why does the U.S. government now think that it has a leg to stand on in deciding to go to war with a country based on the fact that our government has engaged in the very same atrocities that it is accusing the Syrian government of? Those of us who are not asleep or being otherwise entertained need to understand that the U.S. government is not on some ‘humanitarian’ military mission to help out the people of Syria. That is not the true objective here. Remember what the objective was when we started the war in Iraq? The WMDs that did not exist? Then former president George W. Bush changed the focus to ‘liberating the Iraqi people from their horrible dictator and decided to shove democracy down their throats. How well is that working out? Have you seen the reports coming out of Iraq lately?

And lastly, government officials make promises all the time. We know that. They do it to garner votes. They do it to pay lip service to certain constituents, but when it comes down to lying about the reasons for engaging in military action, there needs to be accountability because of the seriousness of taking military action for whatever trumped up reasons. And for those who think that the government would not lie to you, don’t be so naïve. Just look at how easy it was for Obama to change from a staunch opponent of war to its biggest fan. Many of us voted for Obama because we thought that he was the very antithesis of George W. Bush. Many of us protested the war in Iraq and were called many names, i.e., traitor, unpatriotic, et al. We did not care, we knew that it was wrong to invade Iraq. It is just as wrong to involve ourselves in the situation in Syria. We are not in the Middle East and yet, we are involving ourselves in every country in the Middle East even when they have done nothing that should warrant military intervention. Yes, chemical weapon use on anyone is an abomination, but we cannot solve all of the world’s problems with more bombs. It only adds to the problems and solves none. And after Syria, what country is next? Because make no mistake, we will not stop at Syria. We cannot continue to ‘bully'(Obama’s own words)the world into submission and that is what we are hell bent on doing because we are sending a clear message that it is going to be ‘our’ way or prepare for a military strike!

Eyes That Will Not See, Ears That Will Not Hear

Open your eyes and unplug your ears and see and listen to the horrors that Obama is unleashing on not only this country, but others as well.

No! I am most worried about Miley Cyrus.

People are dying for lack of insurance.
Botox will work; I’ve my doctor’s assurance.

The homeless have no place to stay.
Who will the ‘Bachelor’ pick today?

Wake up! Wake up before it’s too late!
How you do carry on! But I have a date.

There are so many people who choose to remain ignorant of what is going on. They would rather tune in to the latest scandal on some reality TV show then educate themselves on what really matters. Though some of us try, we cannot get through because as I’ve stated, they have ‘eyes that will not see and ears that will not hear’. Will they wake up? I sincerely doubt it.

For Shame!

Once, I would have said that Bradley Manning deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, but since Obama has one, quite obviously, it has no meaning anymore. Therefore, I can only state that Bradley Manning should be FREE!!!!

Awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for torture...and what's more, he's proud of it!
Awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for torture…and what’s more, he’s proud of it!

I awake, screaming in the night,
knowing where I am and paralyzed with fright.

Eyes wide from terror, body drenched in sweat.
My tormentor’s coming back, I know what to expect.

I hear the cell door clang; I am thrown to the floor.
He kicks me in the gut; where I am already sore.

Will the torture never end? My body’s had enough.
Yes, these are Americans who are treating me this rough.

A gun put to my head, the trigger is released.
They do this every day and then call me, “the beast!”

Obama’s in control; the commander-in-chief,
who promised us transparency, then stole it like a thief.

Deception and transparency do not go hand in hand.
Horrific acts of torture can be found throughout this land.

The leaders of this country are corrupt right to the core.
People need to know just what they’re paying for.

I am tortured every day for exposing all the lies.
Did Obama not receive a Nobel Peace Prize?

What does it mean to him? Not a thing and that’s for sure!
If he ever had the truth disease, I see he found a cure.

I’ll spend my life in prison; unlike others I could name.
Those who order torture are the ones still in the game.

I was young and so naïve when arrested in Iraq;
for leaking secret documents and I take nothing back.

Torture is the shame; not sharing what I knew.
I’m at peace with myself; the shame belongs on you.

Under the Obama administration, seven Espionage Act prosecutions have been unleashed – more than all those initiated by previous presidents combined. Of those that have been completed, prosecutions have either failed – as in the case of Thomas Drake, a former NSA official against whom all 10 charges were dropped – or led to a prison term for non-Espionage Act charges, as in the case of John Kiriakou, who is serving a 30-month sentence for disclosing classified information about a fellow CIA officer.

“The Manning verdict takes us to a whole other level,” said Liza Goitein, who co-directs the Brennan Center for Justice’s liberty and national security programme. “The government has done a poor job in thinking through the potential effects of this prosecution.”

Though Manning was found not guilty of the most serious charge, “aiding the enemy”, Goitein suggested that multiple convictions under the Espionage Act are certain to have a chilling effect across public information. “This will discourage the average whistleblower, an official who maybe has just a few classified documents that reveal corruption or wrong-doing and who ensure[s] accountability in the system. This will shoot down the least offensive, and the most valuable leaks.”

If the Obama Administration was all about ‘transparency’ then why has this administration prosecuted more ‘whistleblowers’ than all other presidents combined????!!!! This speaks volumes about the corruption that is rampant in this administration to the point where they are hell bent on attempting to prosecute those who have exposed their spying and their filthy war crimes, and then try to make an example out of them to discourage others from shedding light on their crimes and depravities. We have sunk to a new low in America when a corrupt government can point to a man and say “you are guilty because you exposed the truth that we did not want exposed and laid us open to claims of hypocrisy even though that is exactly what we are,” and many of us jump on the bandwagon. We do not care that this man is being subjected to torture and will most likely spend the rest of his life behind bars. I am so terribly sorry that unlike Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning was unable to seek sanctuary.

There is something terribly wrong in America when Russia is granting asylum to someone seeking asylum coming FROM America! America was supposed to be a beacon for people seeking relief from persecution and now the roles are reversed. We are the persecutors!…but then again…haven’t we always been?

More Aid to Syria? What about ‘U.S.’?

Not a problem folks! Nothing to see here or is there?
Not a problem folks! Nothing to see here or is there?
Since air traffic controllers were not furloughed, we can still 'fly' that $815 million to the Syrian people. No problem.

"My fellow Americans, the sequester affects you, not the people of Syria. So let me be perfectly clear, Syria will get almost $815 million in aid and somebody shut those moaning cancer patients up!"
“My fellow Americans, the sequester affects you, not the people of Syria. So let me be perfectly clear, Syria will get almost $815 million in aid and somebody shut those moaning cancer patients up!”

The Obama Administration announced that it would send an additional $300 million in aid to Syria bringing the total to nearly $815 million in aid since the conflict began.

Is not Syria in the ‘oil rich’ middle east? I ask because of this…
Saudi billionaire prince eyes world cities for mile-high tower

Would not the people of Saudi Arabia have an interest in coming to the aid of the Syrian people especially since….
Syria Is Now Saudi Arabia’s Problem
Qusayr is arguably the first battle in Syria to be completely sponsored by Saudi Arabia, marking the kingdom’s first foray outside its sphere of influence along the Jordanian border. Riyadh has now taken over Qatar’s role as the rebels’ primary patron: In one sense, the Saudis can also claim a victory in Qusayr, as they have successfully put various rebel forces under the command of their ally in the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Chief of Staff Gen. Salim Idriss.
So, if a Saudi prince can throw money around looking to build a ‘mile-high’ tower, why not spend it on Syrian relief aid since the Saudis are already involved in the Syrian conflict?

I’m worth more than a measly $20bn, Saudi prince tells Forbes

Alwaleed bin Talal says he is worth at least $30bn
In that case, you definitely should have no problem in contributing aid to the people of Syria. Tell Obama that since the American people are going through sequestration where cutbacks are hurting seniors, Head Start education for children, funding for housing for the poor and homeless, cancer clinics have turned away thousands of patients, furloughs have begun for employees from the U.S. Park police to the EPA, we cannot afford to send aid to Syria. Oh, but we already have while our people are homeless, sick and dying. Since we are going through ‘austerity’ then how the hell can we aid any other country? We refuse to help the people here. What? We’ve got to look good to the rest of the world by showing how ‘benevolent we are to others’ while the people in this country suffer and die? And yet, just one Saudi Prince is upset that Forbes got his net worth wrong, he’s not worth a measly $20billion, he’s worth at least $30billion and yet the U.S. is over the fiscal cliff and drowning in debt. What the hell!!!!

Not to forget that FEMA denied an appeal for millions in aid to help West Texas recover from a fertilizer plant explosion.

“We’ll be there even after the cameras leave and after the attention turns elsewhere,” Obama said during the memorial. “Your country will remain ever ready to help you recover and rebuild and reclaim your community.” Yeah, yeah, yeah, he’s all heart!
Sorry Texas, you’re not in Syria! Sorry cancer patients, you’re not in Syria! Sorry Head Start children, you’re not in Syria! Sorry, you seniors who are eligible for Meals-on-Wheels, you’re not in Syria! Sorry those of you who are concerned about the polluting of our environment, the EPA is not in Syria! Sorry…..never mind. I could go on and on and on. Middle eastern countries are too important not to help because after all, ‘thar’s oil in them thar countries, doncha know’!!!! Wake the hell up people of the U.S.! The sequester is affecting us, but it sure as hell ain’t affecting the Obama Administration’s agenda. Seems like they can pull millions out of their ass to fund what suits their own nefarious motives and agendas. Funding to help resolve the problems of the disenfranchised in the U.S.? Not so much!

Operation Overkill:In The Name of Keeping U.S. Safe!

The Party Line Is Back! Compliments of the U.S. Government!

We Americans are continually being spied on. Now, it appears that the Obama Administration had ordered Verizon to hand over any and all phone records of its millions of customers( WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is defending the government’s secret seizure of millions of domestic telephone records from Verizon, saying the data collection program “has been a critical tool in protecting the nation from terrorist threats to the United States.”,0,4449398.story)A ‘critical tool’? The Boston Marathon Bombing, anyone? So, if the ‘collection program’ did not stop that, then my next question is, why not?
Is everyone who uses a phone, a terrorist? Are we all ‘under suspicion’? When will we wake up and realize that our government and the spying on U.S. is out-of-control? We have lost or given up so many of our rights since 9/11 that I do not even recognize the fact that I live in the United States of America any more. When we decided to go along with the acts of the Department of HomeLand Security, the Patriot Act, the NDAA, did we not realize that by doing so, we were giving carte blanche for each administration to play on our fears of the ‘terrorist bogeyman’? Did any of this stop the Boston Marathon Bombing? The Aurora Colorado Shooting? the Newtown, CT shooting?

It is all fine and good to make sure that America is safe from terrorist activities, but to spy on innocent Americans who are going about their daily lives without a thought in their head of blowing people up or mass killings is beyond ridiculous! I have stated this before and I will do so again. It is my opinion that it is much too late to do anything about what has gotten so far out-of-hand. We cannot turn back the clock and undo every act that we allowed to pass in the name of ‘keeping America safe’. This was used as a tool to get us to relinquish without a whimper any illusions we had that we are a ‘free people’. We have stood silently by while our government has abused any amount of trust that we may have had in it. I have never trusted the U.S. government because people of my complexion have been used as guinea pigs for decades. When nothing was done about that, did others not of my complexion think that the government would confine itself to us? Really? Well now ya know, it ain’t so! The next time you pick up the phone, remember, we have gone back to the ‘party line’. Your neighbor is a terrorist. Your daughter is a terrorist. You may not think so, but it is not up to YOU anymore. YOU relinquished that right and your government is now using it against YOU! Lastly, a word of advice….watch what you say even in jest because you can be detained, indefinitely and Guantanamo Bay has not been closed. Did you really think that the government was done with us when we had to be subjected to radiation or be ‘felt up’ in order to board a plane? So, now we have the ‘secret’ compilation of our phone records. Didn’t this Administration promise ‘transparency’? Secrecy and transparency do not go together no matter how you slice it. So much for promises. They are politicians after all so, what were we thinking???
