The long weekend (a/k/a Memorial Day weekend) of everybody asking “what did you do, where did you go” is finally over. Now it’s back to the grindstone of everyone knowing where you are and what you’re doing and not caring…after all, you’re back at work.
But some “work” involves doing dastardly deeds that only those in a uniform can perform, whether it be those in an all blue or all black uniform, or the uniform of scamming politicians – the nicely tailored suit – those in these “uniforms” are primed and ready to move mountains, after all, they’ve got a lot shyte to take care of.
From a blue uniform punching a girl’s head repeatedly in front of her family over unopened cans of beer to a cop deliberately knocking a man off motorcycle with his cruiser, to fining citizens and arresting them for cracked driveways and improperly stacked firewood – there’s a lot of unruly citizens here in the richest country in the world driving its “law enforcement” bonkers with their hideously evil activities. There’s a lot of shyte to take care of.
Even the Commander-in-Chief had a busy weekend, honoring troops, as he and his band of nicely tailored suit nitwits continue to come up with wars for them to die in. If these suits loved and honored the men and women who serve in the military as much as they say they do – they’d end the wars – now!
But come on, now…Washington has wars, wars, and more wars (for your security, of course) planned for the young men and women in the military to sacrifice their lives for. Who gives a flying f*** that Washington is the uninvited squatter in a sovereign nation? Washington dumps their guano of deliciously stupid rhetoric that insouciant Americans don’t follow that allows them to say shyte like this (and not be questioned about it):
US Warns of “Firm” Response if Syria Attacks ISIS
In an apparent attempt to remove all pretense that the United States is nothing more than al-Qaeda’s Air Force in Syria, the American government is warning its Syrian counterpart that, if the SAA moves ahead with its upcoming southern offensive to remove ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists from its southern borders, the U.S. will take “firm and appropriate measures.”
In other words, the United States is telling Syria that it had better not attack ISIS forces or else. Indeed, American “Firm and appropriate measures” seems like a very thinly veiled threat of military action particularly since the United States seems incapable of taking any “measures” that aren’t “kinetic” in nature outside of its borders. via activistpost.com
But what a minute, isn’t ISIS a terrorist organization that Washington would have us believe we are fighting – thus our reason for being involved in the first place? Naw! When you’re one of the little boys in suits, you can say, do, act upon any package of worm-infested sausage that you slap on the international counter for peace and prosperity, as you define it.
Lay to waste a few sovereign nations like Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan; spend trillions doing it while neglecting the health and lives of veterans; allocate $717 Billion for the next fiscal year to ‘rebuild the military’, so that they can continue their wars that NONE of their sons and daughters will be on the front lines fighting; ignoring the needs of the homeless, the uninsured, the destitute, the elderly, the poor, the mentally ill in the homeland they express patriotic red, white and blue love for; with a fantasy economy based on lies, propaganda and other assorted shittery – they will continue with their scams, hijinks, lies and BS until the house of cards implodes.
Will Americans wake up in time to thwart their own demise? No! Sadly, they don’t really give a shyte that Washington sends others’ sons and daughters off to nations thousands of miles away to kill people with brown-colored skin, wrecking cities and countries in the process and making a few of the insanely wealthy even richer than they were the day before:
WAR is a racket. It always has been.
It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. –Major General Smedley D. Butler
There are kitchen remodels to be done, home additions to be realized, bathroom excesses to be finished off so that fine shittery and bathing can be done, latte’s to be consumed and texts to be sent. Most of the sleeping citizens in America could not be bothered with Washington’s “trivialities” that sacrifice the lives of the poor – for the lives of the fortunate. They’ve got fortunes to gained, and if not fortunes, they’ve got inane texts to answer. They can’t be bothered with Washington’s criminal activities…as long as they get their own house remodeled in time for whatever mind-numbing celebration they believe everyone else should give a shyte about.
It’s hard to be empire, for sure, but it’s even harder, apparently, to be a truly virtuous society. First, I suppose, you have to be not insane. It’s hard to think of one facet of American life that’s not insane now. Our politics are insane. Our ideologies are insane. The universities are insane. Medicine is insane. Show biz is insane. Sexual relations are insane. The arts are insane. The news media is utterly insane. And what passes for business enterprise in the USA these days is something beyond insane, like unto the swarms of serpents and bats issuing from some mouth of hell in the medieval triptychs. How do you memorialize all that? – John Howard Kunstler – via kunstler.com
But not to worry, Washington and the police state here in America have your back, and there’s a lot of shyte to take care of.
