America: We Love the Word "War"

Nixon, dirty crook that he was, declared a "war" on drugs in his presidency back in the 70s. Perhaps he had his reasoning but I refuse to speculate. Let's just let the implications stand right where they are.

The question, though, is why do we still continue this insanity today?

Because the majority of Americans have no idea what reality actually is.

Here's a might big dose of it. Drink it down and fully soak in the bitterness.

The average prison sentence for drug offenders is 75.6 months

Does that help you sleep better at night? Maybe it does if you believe in bullshit like Reefer Madness. But...consider this:

The average prison sentence for violent criminals is only 63 months. 

Who should we be afraid of? The guy who will stab us in a dark alley or the guy who likes getting stoned while he watches cartoons in the privacy of his own home. The majority of America chooses the latter.

Not only that...

In 2003 alone, $600 a second was spent fighting this "war."

Michele Bachmann...no words can do her justice

Current Minnesota House of Representatives member and potential 2012 Presidential candidate

  • We're in a state of crisis where our nation is literally ripping apart at the seams right now, and lawlessness is occurring from one ocean to the other. And we're seeing the fulfillment of the Book of Judges here in our own time, where every man's doing that which is right in his own eyes--in other words, anarchy
  • On same-sex marriage: It isn't that some gay will get some rights. It's that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children. Because our K-12 public school system, of which ninety per cent of all youth are in the public school system, they will be required to learn that homosexuality is normal, equal and perhaps you should try it. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching homosexuality
  • And what a bizarre time we're in when a judge will say to little children that you can't say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it
  • If you are involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it's bondage. It is personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement
  • I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgender. We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life and sexual identity disorders
  • It is horrific to know that in the African American community, 50 percent of all African American pregnancies in the United States end in abortion, 50 percent. That is genocide of African Americans of the United States. It should not be. There are Americans all across this country who would love to adopt African American babies, but they can't because 50 percent of all African American pregnancies today are ending in abortion.
  • If we took away the minimum wage--if conceivably it was gone--we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level
  • There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding nobel prizes, who believe in intelligent design (and she's right, but the problem with her statement is that yes, hundreds do...about 700 according to the discovery institute. Effectively though, this means 99% of scientists support evolution.)
And if that weren't enough, there's also this:

If she actually becomes a serious presidential candidate, I'm fucking out of here. 

We Tend To Worry About The Bigger Issues....

Or maybe we're concerned with too much bullshit to see the light of day...

America: Land Of Democracy: Declared or Potential Candidates for 2012

When enough people are ill-equipped to distinguish between a good idea and a bad one, democracy is compromised. --Cody Gault

This quote is filled to the brim with truth.

This blog is filled with people who are perfect examples of "ill-equipped" which is more than obvious from the way in which they behave. Americans, in general, seem ill-equipped. Our priorities are way off track. Our concerns over issues like where exactly it says "In God We Trust" are inflated. And then we have Conservatives who are supposed to push for small government focusing on issues like mandating a definition for marriage, whether gay and lesbian couples can adopt a child, and abortion which should ultimately be left up to the individual states (who shouldn't get involved in such private issues either, in my opinion). Here are just a few of the potential candidates for next year's election.....if these are the people we're choosing to represent us in our government, this society will never improve.

Sarah Palin

  • Go back to what our founders and our founding documents meant--they're quite clear--that we would create law based ont he god of the bible and the Ten Commandments.
  • Nuclear weaponry, of course, would be the be-all, end-all of just too many people in too many parts of our planet.
  • I don't believe in the theory that human beings--thinking, loving beings--originate from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea.
  • I am pro-life. With the exception of a doctor's determination that the mother's life would end if the pregnancy continued. I believe that no matter what mistakes we make as a society, we cannot condone ending another life. -----yet....in response to questions about her views on capital punishment, she had the following to say:
  • My Goodness, hang 'em up!

Rick Santorum

  • I don't think [birth control] works. I think it's harmful to women. I think it's harmful to our society to have a society that says sex outside of marriage is something that should be encouraged or tolerated, particularly among the young. I think it has, as we've seen, very harmful long-term consequences for society. So birth control to me enables that and I don't think it's a healthy thing for our country.
  • The notion that college education is a cost-effective way to help poor, low-skill, unmarried mothers with high school diplomas or GEDs move up the economic ladder is just wrong.
  • The elementary error of relativism becomes clear when we look at multiculturalism. Sometime in the 1980s, universities began to champion the importance of 'diversity' as a central educational value.
  • And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything. Does that undermine the fabric of our society? I would argue, yes, it does. It all comes from, I would argue, this right to privacy that doesn't exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution...

Ron Paul
  • The notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Consititution or the writings of our Founding Fathers. On the contrary, our Founders' political views were strongly informed by their religious beliefs.
  • The Founding Fathers envisioned a robustly Christian yet religiously tolerant America, with churches serving as vital institutions that would eclipse the state in importance.
  • Because federal hate crime laws criminalize thoughts, they are incompatible with a free society.
  • We don't get our rights because we're gays or women or minorities. We get our rights from our Creator as individuals.

What's freedom again?

I love the country I live in. I hate most of the people who live here, but I love this country. Now here's a prime example of why I hate the people. These brainless conformists who have picked a cause because everyone was doing it, chant "USA, USA, USA, USA!!!", completely oblivious to the fact that they are doing nothing more than strengthening the stereotype that so many foreigners label us all with. They think they're doing right by rallying against this guy's protest, but what are they really doing? They're alienating his right to protest. They're taking away his freedom to speak and to express himself. Why not just tear down the entire structure that we base our freedoms on? Screw it, just burn the constitution, who needs it anyway? I mean, if the majority are doing it, we don't need to think for ourselves, right? God knows nothing good ever comes from that. Let's just follow the herd and "bah" like the good sheep we are. The thing that really kills me is that this took place at an institution for higher learning. A huge university. Why do we even try to better ourselves if we can't even learn respect and tolerance by the time we enter college? Just goes to show you that we value our lies more than our truths.

We Never Take Ridiculous Theories to Heart

NPR was on the scene listening to these Pittsburgh citizens discuss the ending of the world on May 21, 2011. One earthquake of epic proportions is guaranteed by THE BIBLE to strike everywhere. Every-fucking-where. And all you sinners are going to Hell...

Image Isn't Everything

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Americans spent more than $10 billion in 2009 alone on cosmetic surgery.

The quest for perfection has quite a price tag.

Fictional creatures are not on the top of our priority list....

Nor does it create some sort of weird ( and sparkly ) sub-culture.

Gross income in the US alone:

$191,465,414 (USA) (2 April, 2009)

$296,619,304 (USA) (28 March 2010)

$300,523,113 (USA) (17 October 2010)

This does not include merchandise such as t-shirts, stickers, dildos etc, etc.

Yes, dildos.

Americans definitely spend their money on what matters most.
