IF I WERE A GARBAGE BIN

If I were a garbage bin I would want to be that bin that sits in front of the Parliament.
I would get washed every day with prime liquids so I would always smell nice and look like a knight in shining armor.
If I happened to stand in the middle of some politicians drive way I would be wheeled back and forth by personal staff.
Lazy day I know…But I could afford it.

If I were a garbage bin I would want to be that bin that sits in front of the Parliament.
I would get fed every day with finest and freshest ingredients off the market.
Only at the Parliament cafeteria you can eat steak and shrimp for $3 dollars
then throw half of it just cause you couldn’t eat anymore.

If I were a garbage bin I would want to be that bin that sits in front of the Parliament.
I would have personal security 24/7. You’d never see graffiti on the outside.
If someone tried to vandalize me, I’d have SWAT squad at the snap of my lid.

If I were a garbage bin…
If I were…

I gotta go file my taxes. Someone’s gotta keep those garbage bins looking good.

CRYING JUSTICE

If words could tell,
I wouldn’t yell,
Fallen fell
To living Hell.

If money can talk,
Bullshit can walk,
Creeps can’t stalk,
Behind the lock.

If guilty innocence pleads,
Justice! A wrongful needs.
Heart only bleeds.
Gone with ill deeds.

Why, oh why.
Another lie.
Promise you’ll try.
No one will die.

Happy life.
Beautiful wife.
Gone with a knife.
Let him serve life.

Give me Hope.
No – not dope.
No – not rope.
I said Hope.

The Government is ShutDown but Special Forces are Working Overtime

In the last couple days the headlines have been touting the successes of US Special Forces Operations in Africa. It is amazing that we have the money to fund more than the basic running of the military services while we are shut down. It is also amazing that there were Special Forces in Libya to take down a terror cell, which I hope was not in control in a government capacity else we have attacked the sovereignty of another country (oh wait we are the US we do not care about the independence of other nations if they are not following our demands): yet, we could not protect our own embassy staff while they were under attack for hours. Even under Clinton we showed more courage and selflessness.
But putting aside the distractions that the Administration is using to keep eyes off of Washington, Kerry’s comments are priceless….. Al Qaeda “can run but they can’t hide,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday; so does that mean that we will now support Syrian Government Forces and Al-Basad in their battle against terrorism and Al Qaeda? How is it that the US Government can condemn terrorists one day, wage war on the them next and supply them on the third day?? And lets not forget that in the beginning we trained them.
The US has lost all sense of honor and integrity. There is absolutely no moral basis left in Washington. It is all about money and power and politics. But the real tragedy isn’t what is going on in DC, that is purely business as usual; the true tragedy is the acceptance of the American public in the light of such apathetic and appalling behavior as comes out of our government branches. You hear many complain about the situation but few are willing to do anything about it. Even something as simple as writing a blog is too much effort for most. But you have a duty as citizens to participate in your own government. You have a responsibility to your children to participate in your own government. You should have enough self respect to participate in your own government.

Government Taking the Humanity Out Of Humans

It seems that everyday you can find a report where the government is either punishing Good Samaritans or encouraging division and hatred and violence, while claiming the opposite. Every crime that is committed between individuals that can be labeled as being of different races is fodder for keeping the masses fearing and avoiding each other.
Every crime should be treated as one or more humans injuring one or more other humans. That should be the end of the issue, each crime should be treated individually as the crime that it is. Does this mean that I do not believe in hate crimes or in the pure hate of people; No, I know that hate exists in the hearts of those that have not found real love, in those that live in ignorance and full of fear. I know that those that are afraid of others for things such as the color of their skin or the language they speak or the religion they practice is not based on real facts.
When you accept others platforms of hate, even if they are the violent acts of the hate, you are giving them power that they do not deserve.
When you allow that a person committed a crime because they are a certain “type” and their victim was a different “type,” what you have done is to give their ill-gotten “cause” substance that it does not deserve. And when we allow the government to point out the differences between us we are agreeing that we prefer hate and oppression to love and freedom. This is why we have such chronic issues in our society. En mass we accept that people hate, that people are different, that people are violent, that people are many groups instead of one group.
The largest of the cancers rotting our society while the masses are distracted with non-issues, is the actions of the government to limit our freedoms and restrict our rights. One of the most widely used tools to limit our freedom and rights is the required “permits” needed for almost every activity in basically every city, town, village or community in the country. Requiring permits gives the government control over what descent and how much descent is voiced. It also gives the government control over how much unity is created between the masses as well. You might think that sounds crazy; but, when you have to have permits and permission to play sports in parks or to help your fellow man then it is obvious that the control to limit how much unity we have in our society is of grave concern for our government and should offend and insult every member of society.
If we, as a whole people, would stand together then we would be stronger and more powerful than the government. And with that power we could right most if not all the wrongs we currently accept as unsolvable. Then the possibilities of what we could accomplish as the human race would be greatly expanded.
