The big news recently has been the Israeli/Palestinian crisis, but I didn't write about that because it seems most people, and of course the news media, are rooting for the Gazans. I think they're dumber than dirt....make that "sand". I mean, you'd think someone in Gaza would make the connection between "we shoot missiles at them, they drop bombs on us". But no. DUH!
Sure, the Palestinians deserve their own homeland, but with that privilege comes responsibility, and they've shown none of the latter. Grow up, kids!
Now we're launching air strikes on ISIS forces (Sunni Islamic extremists) running around "the place that isn't even a legitimate country", aka Iraq. But we say we're not doing it to support the "government" of Iraq, but to protect our embassies and consulates there. They say the US largest embassy anywhere in the entire world is in Baghdad, Iraq.
Why? Why do we have more than a guy, an expendable mercenary at that, sitting behind a desk with a phone in Baghdad? Do we just have so many gubment bureaucrats we can't fit them all into Washington, DC, so we dump the overflow into Iraq? What the hell is there in Iraq that is vital to our national interests, anyway? Oil? Do we even import Iraqi oil? Can't we get it from elsewhere, like Texas or North Dakota?
Dude, just a suggestion....steal a BELT, and maybe a proper holster.
Somebody please 'splain to me what looting the grocery store and the shoe store have to do with a police shooting? "Yeah, I'll just steal these here AirJordan's and maybe some Slim Jim's....that'll show 'em how pissed I am!" Huh?
Justice needs to be served, whatever the truth might be, but how does rioting and looting bring about justice?
Burning down the police station I might could understand. Still wrong, but at least there's a correlation. But instead their priorities seem to be, 1..."tear up/burn down my own neighborhood to show how much I miss ____", then, 2 ..."blow off my own pecker with this gun I have shoved down in the front of my pants" (see photo above).
There are some really, REALLY stupid people in this world, you know? With over six BILLION people alive today you'd think these idiots (world wide) could find someone to procreate with besides their own first cousins. Are we witnessing evolution in reverse?
That's my two bits. :)
