It’s been a bit since I’ve taken the time to write. Life has a way of keeping me occupied. I miss writing though. Writing is my means to purge all that is frustrating me. So much has happened. Most of it not so good. It’s the times that we live in. We have to pick and choose.
Another theater shooting…more innocent lives lost. Just because the 2nd Amendment says we have the right to bear arms. Never mind the fact our Forefathers created that amendment to justify the existence of civilian militias…of which we no longer need. How many more innocent citizens…children (remember Sandy Hook?) have to die?
On June 17th, 2015 nine human beings were shot to death at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Their “crime”….the color of their skin! How sad is it that in 2015 AD we continue to kill others based on the color of their skin! Even more heinous…murdered in a place of worship! I’m not a religious man by any stretch of the imagination. Yet even I can honor the concept of Sanctuary! Nine human beings…just trying to make sense of the shit word we live in…gunned down in a place of safety and security. Simply unacceptable…and so very sad. L
As the anniversary of Michael Brown Jr. and the Ferguson, MO riots befalls us, much ado has been made about the event a year later. Most of the commentary I’ve read commemorating this event has lauded the riots. A game changer, leading to bigger and better things. In some respects, yes it has. But overall…no. “Black Lives Matter”…the catch phrase of the new civil rights movement. The reality is this movement will never succeed. Its “heroes” are miscreants…Michael Brown Jr…Eric Garner…Freddie Gray. Criminals each and every one of them…worth more dead than alive. The fact that they were criminals is the part no one wants to talk about or mention.
Last but not least the GOP debates. I commend the Grand Obstructionist Party for moving forward and adapting. No longer are they blaming President Obama for all that ails this country. Now, they blame Hillary Clinton too! Way to go! Way to move forward! Not a damn one of you have anything original to offer other than to blame someone else! It absolutely disgusts me that Donald Trump is the frontrunner to be the figurehead of this country. It is even more disgusting that there are people in this country that actually support the piece of shit that is Donald Trump! I can only hope the closer we get to the presidential election clearer heads will prevail and Donald Trump (Ted Cruz as well) will fall to the wayside. I spent 12.5 years in the military promoting all that the United States of America has to offer. Like hell I will have sacrificed just so a piece of shit like Donald Trump or Ted Cruz can serve as this county’s figurehead!
