Looks Like War

WWII was the last time the United States DECLARED WAR.
WWII was the last time the United States DECLARED WAR.

Last week President Obama announced we will still be fighting terrorism across the world utilizing the latest technology in warfare so we can make the world a better place and safe from ISIS. I feel safer already.

Some people may be asking: Why does it seem that United States continues to police the world against terrorism?

Answer: Cuz, we are pretty darn good at it. That’s why. Just look at the results.

Whatever America chooses to do we can’t help but excel at it. Even if “it” is WAR.

See at the root of everything: we are a violent country, wearing designer clothing, texting on our smart phones, while we turn a blind eye to TORTURE and loss of our liberties BUT stay abreast regarding Kim Kardashian’s breasts.

We invade, we abuse, we torture, we ignore, and we forget and look where we are today. More WAR just without our designer boots on the ground.

Didn’t a dude named Eisenhower warn America about the military industrial complex? But what does an old dead white guy know anyways.

It is September 2014 and we are still in Iraq and Yemen and Pakistan and Syria and Somalia and Afghanistan. We will never leave alone the Middle East as long as there is OIL to protect from the “evil doers” that must be punished .

We must solve the problems of the world not through peace but through killing so democracy may live on and oil can flow freely.

On the other hand who really has time to think about war when everyone’s Fantasy Football league has suddenly turned into a nightmare. Am I Right Ladies?

Adrian Peterson Thinks He’s Not a Child Abuser!

I just finished reading Adrian Peterson’s open letter to the Viking’s organization and the world and he actually states, “I am not a perfect son. I am not a perfect husband. I am not a perfect parent, but I am, without a doubt, not a child abuser.”

Someone who beats their child is the very definition of a CHILD ABUSER!

Mr. Peterson goes on to say, “I am someone that disciplined his child and did not intend to cause him any injury.”  Really?  I find that hard to believe since doesn’t the evidence show that Mr. Peterson used a “switch” to punish his son.  He didn’t tickle his son with the “switch” but he repeatedly struck his four year old son.    Adrian Peterson, professional football champion, uses physical force to beat his little son and somehow concludes that he is NOT an abuser.

What kind of human being is able to beat a little child and then pretend it is acceptable behavior.  Answer: a star football player named Adrian Peterson.

He continues to defend his behavior saying, “I know that many people disagree with the way I disciplined my child. I also understand after meeting with a psychologist that there are other alternative ways of disciplining a child that may be more appropriate.”

Really?  I am expected to believe he met with a psychologist who provided “may be more appropriate” than cruelly beating the shit out of his tiny son.

“I have learned a lot and have had to reevaluate how I discipline my son going forward”, he continued saying,  “But deep in my heart I have always believed I could have been one of those kids that was lost in the streets without the discipline instilled in me by my parents and other relatives. I have always believed that the way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man. ”

See everybody “deep” in his “heart” he believes that this type of violence has helped him be a successful professional football player who happens to beat his son.  Got it.

Peterson writes, “I accept the fact that people feel very strongly about this issue and what they think about my conduct.”  Oh, he’s cool with the way we feel about his conduct. Wow that’s a nice euphemism for ABUSE.

I think each man in the NFL who supports Mr. Adrian Peterson first needs to allow him to take a “switch” to their scrotums and then let them weigh in on his “conduct”.

Trouble Right Here in Missouri!

I sat down today having lunch with my friends and they were completely clueless about the horrific situation in Ferguson, Missouri! They had no idea that a young man was shot in the middle of the street and left to die. They had no idea that civil unrest was growing in the community nor did they know that the Ferguson Police Department escalated the entire situation.

Ferguson Police Department aka Fatigue Wearing Badasses playing at war.

I am outraged and helpless to do anything about the ongoing injustices that the police continue to exercise against fellow human beings.  It wasn’t that long ago I witnessed the brutality of the New York police department as they threatened Occupy Wall Street protesters.  I cringed when I witnessed Berkeley school police brutalize young women and men.  Even last night Berkeley students protested the escalating militarization of our countries’ police force and guess what happened next?

According to the Daily Californian

“Protesters in Berkeley, many of whom were UC Berkeley students, chanted “hands up, don’t shoot” and “no justice, no peace, fuck the police.” Crowds marched north on Telegraph Avenue and through Downtown Berkeley before the dispersal order was announced on the edge of campus.

“According to a police alert sent to community members, Berkeley police officers were notified at 8:49 p.m. by Oakland authorities that a “large group involved in a violent demonstration” was making its way into Berkeley.

Yeah imagine how scary a bunch of educated middle class kids in hoodies must be.  And then imagine how scary it must be to see two young black men walking down the middle of a Missouri street must be.

Chief Thomas Jackson at press conference trying to hold in his stomach and wow the press with his lack of knowledge.

With each new piece of information provided to the public from the Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson the more disturbed I become.

The police department refused to release any pertinent information they are legally bound to provide.  Instead they choose to escalate the threat of violence by playing dress up bad asses wearing fatigues to show the country and the world their penultimate level of stupidity and brutality.  A bunch of neaderthals running around with their knuckles dragging and armed with automatic weaponry protecting Democracy.

Footnote:  The Ferguson Police Chief still confused why his leadership is no longer warranted and the Missouri Highway Patrol will handle protecting the peace in Ferguson, Missouri until further notice.
