It’s been a month since my last blog. I have seem to have fallen into a rut. Too many things on my mind maybe, maybe nothing on my mind at all. I seem to be on auto pilot these days. Traveling through time observing but not really taking part. The news use to spark my concerns, but I have grown numb to the madness. Another school shooting, a kid stabs another kid over a turned down prom invite. More discussions about gun control and stricter laws. Stupidity at its finest. It’s simple folks. These murderers do not care about laws. They are suicide bombers only with a rifle. There is no difference from a 16-year-old Taliban fighter blowing himself up in an open market place in Baghdad and an idiot 16-year-old kid with a Three Stooges hair cut shooting kids in Connecticut. Call them what they are, terrorist. They are out to cause terror and kill as many people as they can. They are not troubled individuals with mental illness who need our sympathy. They are terrorist. Where did they get the gun is the topic we should be discussing. If we took those people who bought the guns and failed to properly store them so their failures as parents can be escalated into epic failures of human beings and held them accountable as accessories to the crimes by charging them with arming a terrorist. Then I bet people would be locking up their fire arms a little bit better. Then we take every stupid kid with an illegal handgun and charge them with conspiracy to commit murder. Because lets face it, if a gang member buys an illegal gun he plans on using it. But no, we will continue to chase our tails and go in circles until we just grow tired and lay down.


The world cup…who cares! Any sport that ends it’s games with riots and killings should be banned from existence. Hockey? Same thing. As much as I love the sport I don’t think promoting unsportsmanlike conduct should have a place in the world of professional sports. Players suing the NFL over concussions? IT’S FOOTBALL! What the hell did you think was going to happen? You’re a thug in a bad neighborhood with no father and someone gives you a college education and 50 million dollars to play a game for a living and your going to cry about headaches. You’re the same idiot who brings an unregistered handgun into a night club tucked in the waistband of your sweat pants and accidentally shoots himself in the leg. Idiots.


Edward Snowdon? Grant him a pardon, let him come back home. Ask him to run for office.


Bowe Bergdahl? Idiot for, well-being an idiot. What the hell did he think was going to happen? I think he got exactly what he deserved. His dad is an idiot too. Growing his beard out and learning to speak the Pashto language to seem more in touch with his son’s captures was really stupid. But to still have the beard after his release and to praise Allah in Pashto right in front of President Obama and the nation. Wow, an idiot to beat all idiots. One more picture of him in front of the American flag or of his son in uniform and I am going to throw up. And the five guys they released? really bad men. Among them was Norullah Noori. He slaughtered thousands of men, women and children during a month-long raid on several Afghanistan villages killing anyone associated with helping American soldiers. When I say helping I mean not trying to kill them. What do we do? we send them to the island of Qatar. I am not sure if you know much about this island, but let me tell you it is absolutely beautiful. Not to mention today they announced it will host the Soccer World Cup next year. I know right! Where do I get my plane ticket!


Donald Sterling? He may be a racist, fat, cheater, slob of a human being. But you can not listen in on private conversations between two people who are having sex with each other and use those words against them. If we let this happen then we are all in trouble. Hate him all you want but the fact remains he made an awful lot of young black Americans very rich. He also gave millions in scholarship funds to African-American organizations. So let him rant in private to his half African-American mistress all he wants. The true idiots are those making a big deal about it.

The President taking a walk to get coffee yesterday to show the world that he is just a regular guy. Hiring a team of comedic writers to create humor for him so people would think he’s a funny average, run of the mill guy. I am tired of it. I want a leader who is cold and hard and able to make the really tough decisions that affect each and every one of us. I don’t need a buddy. I need leader.

War on terror? well let me just say this. Pakistan. They train hundreds of terrorist every year. They gave shelter to Bin Laden. They are the birth place of 55 of the 125 prisoners currently being held at Guantanamo Bay detention camp. They also were responsible for detaining and torturing Bowe Bergdahl. (Not that I care). I am thinking that is where our focus should be and not on stupid countries like Syria and Sudan and Yemen who don’t pose any real threat to the U.S.

As for Afghanistan? I understand after reading Colin Powell’s book that the only reason we were there and are still there is because it is a weak country, easily manipulated and centrally located in the Middle East which gives us a place to park and house our weapons in case we need them for an attack on neighboring countries. Plus as long as we are there we have better control over the Heroin trade.

And Iraq? Well I think we can all see now that it really does need a man like Saddam Hussein to control it. It is far worse off without him. It is worse than before we went in and killed thousands of men, women and children. All we did was give birth to millions of more people who hate the United States. Good for us.

Well I think I have drudged through the mud of the daily news long enough. On the bright side….hmmm, I will have to think about that one and get back to you.
