Have a great 4th of July weekend suckers!

Hey did your town or locality cancel fireworks, lay off cops, teachers, or discontinue any service that most sane people would consider necessary? Did they do it because they said they couldn't afford it? They're probably lying, just like our federal government lies.

See, the feds keep telling us we have to cut back, freeze spending, and discontinue things like Medicaid, student loan programs, fixing schools, bridges, and highways. They keep saying there's not enough money for that stuff. But you know what they find plenty of money for? The god damn war in Afghanistan.

Oily Leon Panetta and General Betray-us say that Al Qaeda in Afghanistan number less than one hundred. If that's correct then my question is why the fuck do we need to spend $30 billion more on the fucking war? Why are we sending more troops over there? Why are we paying Blackwater and Haliburton to keep doing whatever they're doing over there? Hell, give me a month or two and one million and I'll put together and army of evil rednecks who will go over there and clean out those few Al Qaeda that are left and my boys will do it all for case of beer each, a new rebel flag tattoo each, and a garbage bag full of meth to split between all of them. So why do I need a million? I'll need to it pay off the mortgage on their trailers so they'll have some place to live when they get back, I'd hate to see people who fought for our country go homeless, which puts me one rung higher than the Republicrats on the compassion ladder.

Nine fucking years, less than one hundred of the enemy left to kill, and they need $30 billion more of our money? Where's the teabagger outrage over the war cost? Bush/Obama's wars are the cause of our spiraling deficit. Those out of work lazy bastards who want more unemployment money didn't run our deficit up, it's not those senior citizens who keep on living and sucking down Social Security like Ted Haggard at a glory hole that's putting us in the poor house, it's the fucking wars of terror that corporate America and the prison/military industrial complex want us to wage that's busting our budget.

And you know what? The next person who says that freedom isn't free and that we should all give a soldier a blow job for keeping us free can kiss my ass. No soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan is doing a god damn thing to keep me free. They are there for corporate America and to keep the great American Empire going.

Fuck the war. Fuck pissing $30 billion more away. And most of all, fuck Obama for keeping this shit going. What happened to the anti war candidate who was going to end this shit if we just got off our asses and worked our fingers to the bone to get him elected? Where's that guy? If you find him let me know because I bet he'd love to kick the ass of the current occupant of the White House who is keeping the war going for no good reason at all.

Happy fourth of July America, there's no money for Social Security, for teachers for your kids, for fixing the shit that's broken, for getting us off our addiction to oil, for arts education (which study after study has shown helps kids more than anything), but there's always a stray $30 billion or two for a corrupt quagmire of a country that we're going to occupy for fucking ever.

Apparently what you didn't realize is there were only 7 of them when this whole clusterfuck started 9 years ago!

Thanks for putting things into perspective, Dr M.

And it's also interesting that the number of millionaires in the US rose by a considerable amount and the sale of yachts is up.

Ironically, frustratingly, it's only the oil addiction that has kept Alberta out of a near-identical economic/job situation. I almost feel guilty even though it's not my fault.

Afghanistan, though. Afghanistan is different (er, the same, rather). Canada should have been out of there 8 years ago.

I love you for this one!

Thanks for saying what so many of us have thought for the last 9 years.

Happy Fourth!

very well said. i'm hoping there's some sort of justification to the war that the public should not be privy to that would otherwise cause a mass hysteria but thats just idealism clashing with realism.

i have no idea what most of those words mean.

Megan said...

Amen, brother.

Fran said...

Exactly! I'm looking for that guy who said.... I won;t be asking for more & more emergency supplemental war money-- it will all be in the budget, up front.

Where is that guy???

Because now he's saying, Brother can ya spare another $33 billion.

So now when they slash education budgets, social security & what not, you can know those funds went to hell in a handbasket in the Afghanistan war.

If we could not accomplish in 9 + years what we set out to do, then we need to get the hell out.
