Just As I Expected

When I first heard about the Trayvon Martin case, I immediately assumed someone somewhere blew the story out of proportion and created another Facebook trendy thing to post.

I did my best to ignore the case, but people continued to write about this kid and they posted ridiculous pictures on their pages. Enough is enough I thought. I decided to see what all the fuss was about.

Fact: Racism exists. Fact: The Trayvon Martin story is not the same as the Emmett Till case. Emmett Till grew up in a racist, segregated society and he was murdered simply because of his race. Trayvon Martin is no Emmett Till. Hypothesis: Trayvon Martin probably died justifiably. (According to Florida Law!)

People are quick to jump to the race card and scream to the Heavens (The Heavens is a mythical place where the imaginary father figure to billions of humans resides!) about an injustice. I understand that racism is alive and well, but I am certain that I do not live in 1960’s America. Therefore, when I heard about a young black kid who was killed in cold blood by a racist white guy, for no apparent reason, I didn’t believe the hype.

When people started with this hoody nonsense, I immediately knew that there was more to the story, but I honestly didn’t care; I have goals to accomplish and I can’t waste time on falsified claims. I did my best to ignore the story, but there was no escaping the media coverage. Yesterday, this Trayvon Trend reached a new low. There was a picture of a half-naked whore dressed in a hoody, I guess, showing her support! (By media, I mean Facebook friend posts!)

First, there was some nonsensical million hoody march in New York. (I think that’s what I read!) Then, our leader, President Obama joined in and said the most insignificant political bullshit that the American public eats up. “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” Obama shared. (I almost cried!)

Today, I reached my breaking point. Some dumbass elected official (I will not waste time researching this man’s name, because he does not deserve to receive any notoriety for his unbelievably foolish action!) decided to wear a hoody in the House of Representatives. (Hopefully, this guy loses his job due to his lack of better judgment, but as another elected official once said, “You don’t have to pass an IQ exam to be elected!”)

I finally decided to read about the case. I do not have all of the facts, but there is enough evidence to show that, like I believed initially, Trayvon may have been killed according to Florida law. In no way am I agreeing with the law, I am simply saying that people have to understand the laws of the land and act accordingly.

I don’t live in the state of Florida, but I remember when this law was enacted. I read the story and I honestly thought that Floridians are insane. In Florida, it is important to conduct yourself in a proper manner because people have guns and they are allowed to shoot you dead.

I didn’t immediately eliminate race as a factor in the case, but I knew there was no way in hell that a man could kill an innocent seventeen year-old because he had on a hoody. This could not happen in my America. I’m not saying that there aren’t any crazy people in this country who will kill over race, but the person would be arrested. Saying that Trayvon Martin was killed for wearing a hoody is an attempt to compare the struggles of the blacks of the 60’s to modern times and that is a slap in the face to the civil rights movement. (To the uninformed public opinion geniuses: Please stop writing that Trayvon Martin was killed over a bag of skittles and an iced tea; you will cause people to assume that you are an idiot!)

It turns out that the America I believe in exists. The killer, George Zimmerman, had a bloodied and broken nose, and he never left the scene. I may not be Encyclopedia Brown, but there seems to be more to this case than the Facebook sleuths initially reported. (That’s the problem with these trendy Facebook posts; the facts have to be skewed in order to cause the masses to follow!)

This is probably what happened on the night in question. Zimmerman saw Trayvon, who looked suspicious due to his hoody, and then asked him to identify himself. (I have no idea how, all of a sudden, millions of Americans are trying to act like people who wear hoodies don’t look suspicious, regardless of race! STOP THE NONSENSE!) Trayvon (a less than stellar student who has a history of suspensions) probably replied with some profanity laced, threatening speech, and a fight ensued. Zimmerman probably got punched in the nose and he decided to pull out his gun. (Skittles and iced tea had nothing to do with anything!)

The hoody on the other hand did play a role. I thought we, as a nation, agreed to be suspicious of people who wear hoodies.

How quickly we forget!

     This is why we have a justice system. We cannot allow public opinion to rule. If anyone joins forces with the “honorable Pimp” Al Sharpton in his effort to occupy Sanford, FL, I hope Zimmerman feels threatened!

Honestly, if President Barack Obama, wears a hoody in honor of Trayvon, I am moving to Mexico at the end of my lease.

Pump It Up

Due to a busy workday, I’ll make this post short. I’m not sure what’s going on back home in Boston, but out here in California, we are getting raped on a daily basis. The gas prices are out of control. A few days ago, I saw a news report that said there is one place, not too far from where I live, where the price is $5.69 a gallon. That was the price; I have no idea how high the price is now. It turns out that in California, the gas stations near the freeway have a custom of charging more than other stations. (I’m guessing this trend varies from state to state, because in Boston, the Hess by the highway is fairly cheap!) I travel for work, so I’m at the gas station all the time. I go to a station a few streets away, because the one around the corner belongs to a guy who is a jerk. (We don’t support his business!) ***If you are ever in the NOHO arts district and you happen by the 76 gas station on the corner of Burbank and Lankershim, do me a favor and keep driving!*** Luckily, my station is only a couple blocks away and the price is at $4.31. (Unbelievable! This place is one of the cheapest around!) Most gas stations are at least thirty cents higher. The prices are jumping around on a daily basis; earlier this week, my station was at $4.09. I’m there so often, that I walk up and the attendant asks, “The usual?” Hopefully, we can overtake an oil producing country and get these prices back to a reasonable price. I suggest Equatorial Guinea; I just saw a report on the “Royal Family.” Apparently, the President has been in power for over 30 years and his son is being groomed to take control once he dies. The country makes billions off oil and the family steals most of it. “The Prince” purchased a 30 million dollar home in Malibu and, along with his fleet of cars, he owns a 35 million dollar jet. (The citizens of this oil-rich nation are among the world’s poorest!) Some people are pure evil, but when the U.S, needs your oil, you get a free pass.

I wonder if Obama knows that this guy is a scumbag!

    That’s all for this post!

Bush v Obama

Friends, Bostonians, Countrymen, lend me your ears; I have come here to bury Barack, not to praise him! (A little plagiarizing never hurt anyone!)

Before I compare the two Presidents, I first want to say, I love how people call Barack Obama “Barry.” Is this some effort to make him seem more American and less threatening? (Who could ever hate someone that gets introduced as “my friend Barry?”) I also want to mention the fact that it was ridiculous how people challenged the fact that Barack was a non-Muslim. When did the Constitution state that Muslims were not allowed to serve as the President of the United States? What happened to freedom of religion?

Bush was widely supported by the religious-right, but he didn’t adhere to the “What Would Jesus Do” way of living. Jesus wouldn’t invade Iraq, and Jesus wouldn’t lie about WMDs! I hope all of the people who voted based on religion feel great about their decision. (I honestly believe there should be a test given to anyone who wants to vote. Allowing any idiot to have an equal say in who runs our nation is the dumbest part about the entire election process!)

When it comes to deciding which President I like more, I will not consider political policies and campaign promises, although I will discuss them. (I would be writing for several days if I had to point out every flaw and broken promise that each leader has committed.) Politicians are all the same. I pick my favorites according to my own criteria.

This may come as a surprise, but I like Bush the sequel more than I like Obama. “Why? It’s simple. Bush is funny!

“How can you like Bush; he’s a racist who did nothing for the people of New Orleans!” Don’t be an idiot. The way Bush handled Hurricane Katrina had nothing to do with racism. He was simply inept. *News Flash* The guy is not a genius! He had absolutely no qualifications to be elected President, but the people loved him, so we were stuck with W.

“What do you mean Bush isn’t a racist?” if you consider Bush Racist because he mishandled Katrina, then Obama is equally as racist for the way he mishandled the government funding for the flood victims in Iowa.

“What floods in Iowa?” Exactly! No one even concerned themselves with the horrible floods because we were so busy focused on money and the economy that we failed to care about our fellow Americans! People didn’t hold Barack responsible for not helping the Iowa flood victims, because the media didn’t cover the devastation. No, Barack is not racist; like Bush, he’s inept!

Below is one picture of the wreckage. If you want to know more, be proactive and Google it!

Does this picture remind you of Katrina”?

Now that we have established the fact that Bush and Obama are equally inept, let’s move on to what truly matters. Obama loses major points because he is boring. He’s eminent and Presidential. (Who the hell wants that?) I grew sick and tired of listening to his speeches, we already know what he is going to say and everything sounds rehearsed. It’s all the same and it’s all bullshit. I don’t know why people thought he was going to be some “Messiah.” He is a man like all the other Presidents, and his main objective is to look out for number one—and his lobbyists of course.

It’s not like Obama became king of America. He doesn’t have absolute power. Like every other American leader, Obama has to work with other elected officials and their all too busy trying to keep their own political parties in power. Politicians can’t worry about doing something meaningful for the voters; they have priorities.

There should be no expectations when it comes to politicians. Be grateful when one actually comes through, but don’t hold your breath waiting for results. (I am obviously speaking about major political players. The lower level political figures are caring people for the most part, but they lack the power to make the changes that are necessary; the very citizens these politicians aspire to help fail to give them the proper support.) *I’ll definitely include myself when I talk about the uninvolved people.*

There is obvious progress concerning race relations with Obama’s election, but true progress will occur when no one notices the color of the President’s skin—we have a long way to go!

Bush, unlike Barack, was a wild card; we had no idea what he was going to say or do. His mannerisms alone kept us tuned in. Each speech provided extremely hilarious moments. (Don’t forget the fact that someone actually threw his shoes at W…That was classic!) Other than Yogi Berra, there is no one with more dumb quotes; Bush is king of comedy! Because of W, the term Bushisms was coined. The man also had balls. He treated the citizens of the United States of America as if we were some dumb love struck school girl, who he was dating. He did nothing but fib and tell us what we wanted to hear.

Secretary of State: “Mr. President, there are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.”

W: “That’s OK. They love me; they’ll believe whatever I say.”

Bush to the American Public: “We will remove all of Saddam’s WMDs and we will free the people of Iraq and bring democracy to the nation!” (We bought it hook, line, and sinker!)

Secretary of State: “Mr. President, the war is not even close to being over; we’ll be there for another ten or so years.”

W: “That’s OK. Did you forget? They love me!”

Bush to the American Public: “Mission Accomplished!” (Amazing!)

Obama is the reason I don’t watch the late night talk shows anymore; there are no jokes. There is absolutely nothing humorous about the guy; he’s too calculated and distinguished. Bush jokes filled at least three minutes on a nightly basis. He was comedic gold! When George W. Bush handed over the reins to Barack Obama, comedians all over the world mourned the loss of a wonderful resource. They have yet to recover. Thank goodness for people like Palin and Bachmann!

I miss Bush. And I also miss the comedian who was a splitting image of W. The guy was hysterical. Comedy Central roasts will never be the same without him. The only comedic moment provided by Obama was the video by pastor manning. “Barack Obama is a long-legged Mack-Daddy!” I can watch that video all day. (Youtube it; you won’t regret it!)

I didn’t vote for Bush, but I voted for Barack. I actually lost a bet to an ex-girlfriend so I had no choice in the matter. I also knew the historical significance of the election, so I didn’t mind participating. (I am a history major!)

When it comes down to the nitty-gritty, Bush is my guy! I’ve always been a Bush guy! (Yes, pun intended!) Sorry Barack…get a sense of humor and I’ll reconsider my choice. Honestly, which guy would you want to hang out with? Bush wins in a land-slide.

“But we’re talking about Presidents, not who is more fun to hang out with!” I know, but neither man is qualified to be President. If Obama was a white politician from Kansas, he wouldn’t have even been in the running. (Yeah, I said it!) Let’s call it like it is. The guy is as qualified as Bush. The fact that he is way more intelligent than W, doesn’t make him the right choice to run the White House. The man had no leadership experience and we gave him the keys to the world.

I can’t wait to experience all of the changes that Barack promised. Let me guess…we should allow him one more term, so he can finally fulfill his promises. (No thanks!) When it comes to Presidents, we need to understand that they will only do what they must for their lobbyists. The voters will always be screwed. In the next election, I am supporting Sarah Palin. (She’ll be a riot!) To Massachusetts’ own Mitt Romney, I say, NO! (He’ll be as boring as Barack!)

As far as Barack’s re-election, I’ll quote my good man George W. Bush. “There’s an old saying in Tennessee, I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee….that says, Fool me once shame on *Awkward pause* shame on you. *Another awkward pause* You fooled me, can’t get fooled again!” (How can you not love a guy who fucks up such an easy quote?)

If you believe in the election process, good for you; I applaud you. No, I don’t vote and I don’t complain! Make your own success; don’t rely on the government to provide for you!

I don’t know about you, but I’m about to go Google some Bushisms!

Before I go, I feel compelled to leave another quote: “Too many OBGYNs aren’t able to practice there…there love with women all across this country!” (COMEDIC GOLD!)
