What in the name of Zeus and all that is holy is going on here??? I swear the world isn’t cracking up…IT’S ALREADY CRACKED!! I can not believe the amount of insane, NON commonsense crap that is going on in the world! It’s unnerving.
Case in point; In Afghanistan there were Qu’rans being burned by our military and consequently and very understandably violent protests broke out. Our answer (and I’m paraphrasing) “Oops! Our bad. It was an accident.” WHAT? An accident? Because we were just sitting around and said “Hey there’s some books with extremist inscriptions in them…LET’S HAVE AN OLD FASHIONED NAZI BOOK BURNIN’!!”…idiots. Now there’s call for a holy war.
Don’t even get me started on the Congress and the President. He’s had four years, two of them with full control over the house and senate. what’s his plan to save the economy and jobs? SPEND, SPEND, SPEND, TAKE, TAKE, TAKE!!! He reminds me of those Patrick memes, “Why don’t we take all the money from the people and put it in the government hands to give back to the people.” Why not? Corporations wouldn’t be able to pay you but the government will. OH, and then it was decided that we should pass bills before they were written and as a prerequisite for being an American “citizen”, WE SHOULD BUY HEALTH INSURANCE! Oh, but don’t worry, you don’t HAVE to have it. You’ll get fined, (imprisoned if you have kids) for NOT having it. Just like you don’t have to pay taxes if you don’t want but be prepared for some hefty fines if you don’t.
Oh, and the GOP candidates are only a little better. You got Santorum; who doesn’t seem to understand that a large part of the GOP base is Libertarian who he thinks is dangerous, Romney; who helped author the monstrosity that is Obamacare, so that’s off the table. Gingrich, who has a ton of balls (good thing) but will have to answer to his past..a lot. Then there’s Ron Paul. This man has some AWESOME domestic plans, but his foreign policies are a friggin’ nightmare. Before you get all upset, hear me out. I don’t care how we got to this point with the rest of the world, we’re here. Nothing is going to change the intense desire to wipe us off the face of planet. By pulling all our troops and bases from around the globe you are practically inviting our enemies to do as they will. Iran is arming themselves with nukes, and there have been reports that they are working with Venezuela, who, by the way, have the weaponry to reach the US. All it takes is one to slip through what ever defenses we have. It’s an arrogant if not blinded way of thinking.
In the state of Minnesota, the Governor just signed a bill into law requiring teachers to pass a basic skills test before they could teach. Wait, what? Teachers didn’t already have to pass a skills test? NO! They could fail it but still get a temporary THREE YEAR license to teach while they work on passing it! So How long has this crap been going on??!! Have we been undereducated? Why has this NOT been an issue before?? I would think that something like this would have been implemented, oh I don’t know, FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE PUBLIC EDUCATION PROGRAM!!!
This is why I can’t get into politics. The insanity that you have to go through is just horrible. I don’t subscribe to the end times theory but I’ll be damned if one of the signs is not abject stupidity.
When I started this post, I really wasn’t looking to get political. I may actually think twice before publishing it. I have enough crap to deal with in my own life to worry about the rest of the worlds issues. Which is why I haven’t posted in a while, and why I may not post again. Then again I might, it may just take me a while.
