Well, here we are again – right in the middle of a bunch of crap in the Middle East that’s none of our business. Obama has been posturing & trying to figure out what to do, and the rest of the world looks at him (and us) like “what the hell?” Obama is inexperienced, and has a proven track record that he doesn’t know what to do.
He’s been saying that he’ll attack, even without the approval of congress. He says he’ll attack despite what other world leaders say. It seems that only France is supporting him, but even they say that they won’t move alone. Putin has threatened retaliation from Russia. Like him or not, he is no punk. He has a lot of experience as a KGB operator, and unlike Obama the “community organizer,” he does know what’s going on when it comes to world affairs.
Obama & Co. keep talking about chemical weapons being used in Syria. But all of the reports of the chemicals that were sold to Syria say sodium fluoride and potassium fluoride – the same chemicals that our government has been dumping in our water supply for years. Now, while I agree this toxic poison has no business in our water, why is it such an alarming thing for these chemicals to be in Syria, if they are so “safe” for the US population?
And more importantly – WHY THE HELL is Obama wanting to support the Al Qaeda rebels? Haven’t we been fighting these people all over the world? Haven’t they declared war on us? These are the same folks that are training terrorists to come bomb us & kill us & our allies. How can this guy expect our troops to fight for them when they’re killing our troops elsewhere?
And now everyone is crying because the GOP leaders are jumping on board with Obama. Guess what folks? They’re on the same team! This false idea of a two party system of government in America is a hoax. There are NOT 2 sides. The republicans & democrats have worked hand-in-hand to bring our country to where we are today. The majority of our “leaders” are lawyers. Lawyers are taught to win at all costs. They say & do whatever they have to to get what they want.
These politicians belong to the same organizations, they’re all rich, and they couldn’t care less what the average American thinks. The “2 parties” are a myth that is perpetuated in the minds of the American people. They are just 2 sides of the same corrupt coin. Each side has a huge propaganda machine that pumps out what their followers want to hear, & they keep pointing the blame to “the other side.” As long as they can keep their followers blaming the other side, it keeps the focus off of them.
There is no real struggle between democrats and republicans. That is just smoke & mirrors. The real struggle is between the politicians and the people. Their “Divide & Conquer” strategy is one that has been used effectively throughout history. I live in Missouri, & since I was a little boy, I have seen on our state flag the motto “United we stand, Divided we fall.” I remember right after the 9/11 attacks, we were Americans. All but the most rabid followers of each party set their differences aside, and we were a nation again.
In the relatively “comfortable” years since then, the politicians have kept their propaganda machines in high gear & now there is more hatred among Americans than ever. The domocrats blame Bush, the republicans blame Obama. The truth is that both were poor presidents, and dishonest bastards. Congress is just as guilty. If we had good men & women representing us in congress, then bad presidents would be ineffective.
But if we’re honest with ourselves, we have to look to ourselves for who is to blame. We’ve elected poor leaders, & then allowed them to stay despite the bad things they’ve done. A handful of greedy, unscrupulous individuals have ruined a nation that used to be wealthy, powerful, and a place that people from all over the world looked at as the example of freedom. But millions of lazy Americans appointed the bad leaders! Our wealth & prosperity caused us to be lazy & apathetic. Even with everything falling down around us, the majority of Americans couldn’t care less, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their favorite sports show, or reality TV program.
The path we’re on is not sustainable. The day will come when we will, as a nation, have to pay for what has been going on in America. I believe that day is coming sooner than later. There are big changes coming to America, and most of them will not be good for any of us. If we haven’t reached the point of no return yet, it is approaching fast. Empires have risen & fallen many times in the past, and anyone who thinks it can’t happen to us is delusional. It may be too late to fix it already, and the more I see of what is happening in America & the rest of the world, the more I believe we’ve already let it go too long.
I’ve seen the following video passed around a few times. I don’t watch much TV anyway, but I don’t watch this show in particular. I doubt that the entire show has such a good message, but this segment really nails where we are as a nation today. There is some strong language, so if that offends you, don’t watch it. Watch it alone before you let your kids watch it.
