His Majesty the King


Last night POTUS told us what we already know. Were you paying attention to his words and actions all these years?

(The only thing he managed to have straight last night was his flag pin...)

The great Uniter-In-Chief continuing to do what he does best: divide and then multiply his bullshit agenda.

Oh sure… blame Republicans… blah blah blah

POTUS using his pen to shove rule of law down our throats.

Apparently he thinks the country wants to play Let’s Make a Deal. What a joke!

Did you hear him lecturing the United States of America on how to be accountable? I laughed my ass off!

He waited all these years until this exact moment in time to show the world how powerful he is.

(Oh, and I’m not impressed by those violin stories. I’m pretty sure his speech writers are tired of him too.)

POTUS calls his executive order a debate. What a pathetic loser!

Let’s reward everyone for breaking the law. Woohoo!

Did you hear the college part of his speech? How about helping Americans get their degrees? What a LIAR!

Then he said that trigger phrase: SHARED COMMITMENT – Gee whiz, Obama! I didn’t realize we were sharing anything but your LIES.

Lie Lie Lie Lie Lie – LIAR IN CHIEF!

Let’s give jobs to criminals. Yay!!! Yippeee!!! Weee!!!

This POTUS is unreal. He needs a reality check.

Our Troops Singing "Days of Elijah"



Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun, at the trumpet's call
Lift your voice, the year of Jubilee
Out of Zion's hill, salvation comes

I love this! I love our troops!

The first time I saw this video on facebook I almost cried.

It’s moving! The Spirit is moving in spite of the evil in this world. There is music, movement, singing, and shouting – all for God! Amen!!!

What has happened to this country?

It’s amazing all the people out there who believe a police officer (red, yellow, black or white) doesn’t have the right to protect him or herself from harm. People keep saying “unarmed black teenager” well—last time I checked you can still kill someone even if you’re unarmed.

It’s pretty ballsy of anyone, I don’t care how old or who you are, to come after a cop no matter the size of the chip on your shoulder. I don’t care what kind of mood the cop is in. If a police officer is adamant about something usually citizens cooperate. You don’t talk back to the police officer and you don’t go after them and try to take their weapon away from them.

Here we are all these days later and some “facts” are slipping out and we still don’t have the whole story but all of Ferguson and the surrounding towns are in an uproar—for what? It’s a sad situation all around in many cities across the world. People behaving poorly, passing judgment, and making ASSumptions as to what happened when they weren’t there and not having the fortitude or the patience to wait and see what happens—it’s ridiculous!

Meanwhile, kids are not in school.

Every night there is violence in the streets. Racism—oh it still exists but it’s not your racism of the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. It’s a different kind of racism and it has nothing to do with character or integrity or what makes a human being.

What really gets me is that as a “white” someone I’m automatically dismissed. I couldn’t possibly know what I’m talking about. The ends justify the means.

I’ve been thinking about that police officer, wondering what his story is, where he’s hiding, and whether or not anyone is going to listen to what he has to say. When someone is guilty usually, hopefully, we can anticipate the truth but as a society we are so warped we’ve lost sight of the truth and have bought the lie.

And where are all these thugs during the day? They wrap their faces with scarves to try and hide their identity. That’s the mantra of a coward.

Oh, and militarizing our local law enforcement. That’s about the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. If the local citizens are out of control damaging property and hurting people and local law enforcement is not allowed to serve or protect the people. what are they supposed to do? Sit around and twiddle their thumbs? State and Federal make up this nation and when one fails the other is supposed to take up the slack. It’s called backing up the people!

What has happened to this country?

Israel-Palestine: Lost In Translation


The following is a snippet I pulled out of an article circulating in Greece as well as other countries due to social networking connections. Read through the snippets, I will share a few remarks along with the link to the complete article.


THIS:

Εκ πρώτης όψεως, ίσως να μη φαντάζει ως ο πιο άμεσος τρόπος για να σταματήσουμε τους σκοτωμούς, αλλά η ιστορία μας έχει δείξει πως όταν το οικονομικό κόστος της κατοχής μεγαλώνει, τότε ανοίγει ο δρόμος προς την ειρήνη. Κάνε κλικ για να ζητήσεις από 6 μεγάλες τράπεζες, συνταξιοδοτικά ταμεία κι εταιρίες να αποσύρουν τις επενδύσεις τους απ΄τα κατεχόμενα. Αν ο καθένας και καθεμιά από εμάς συμμετέχουμε στην έκκληση τώρα, μπορούμε να δημιουργήσουμε μια πραγματικά παγκόσμια κατακραυγή που θα τους αναγκάσει να αποσύρουν τις επενδύσεις τους -- η οικονομία του Ισραήλ θα ταρακουνηθεί κι έτσι θα ανατρέψουμε τα όποια πολιτικά οφέλη επιδιώκονται μέσα απ’αυτή τη διαμάχη. Μέσα σε πέντε εβδομάδες, τρεις ισραηλινοί έφηβοι δολοφονήθηκαν στη δυτική όχθη, ένα αγόρι απ΄την Παλαιστίνη πυρπολήθηκε ζωντανό, ένα παιδί Αμερικανικής υπηκοότητας ξυλοκοπήθηκε βάναυσα απ’την ισραηλινή αστυνομία και πάνω από 40 παιδιά της Γάζας έχουν σκοτωθεί από ισραηλινές εναέριες επιθέσεις. Δεν πρόκειται πλέον για Παλαιστινιακό -- πρόκειται για έναν πόλεμο εναντίων αθώων παιδιών κι ο κόσμος έχει αρχίσει να αναπτύσσει ανοσία στις εικόνες παγκόσμιας ντροπής.

TRANSLATES to THIS:

At first glance, might not seem to be the most direct way to stop the killing, but history has shown us that when the economic costs of the occupation grows, it opens the road to peace. Click to ask six major banks, pension funds and corporations to withdraw their investments APTA occupied. If each and everyone of us involved in the appeal now, we can create a truly global outcry that would cause them to withdraw their investment - the economy of Israel shaken so would subvert that political benefits from such a sought through controversy. Within five weeks, three Israeli teenagers were murdered in the West Bank, a Palestinian boy aptin burnt alive, a child brutally beaten American citizenship AP'TIN Israeli police and more than 40 children have been killed in Gaza by Israeli air strikes. There is no longer a Palestinian - this is a war against innocent children and the world has started to develop immunity to the images global shame.

The ENGLISH VERSION from the ORIGINAL Website:

This may not feel like a direct way to stop the current killing, but history tells us that raising the financial cost of oppression can pave a path to peace. Sign the petition on the right and call on 6 key banks, pension funds and businesses to pull out -- If we all take smart action now and turn up the heat, they could withdraw, the Israeli economy will take a hit, and we can turn the calculation of the extremists politically profiting from this hell upside down.

In the last five weeks three Israeli teenagers were murdered in the West Bank, a Palestinian boy was burnt alive, an American kid was brutally beaten up by Israeli police, and now over 40 Gazan kids have died in Israeli air strikes. This is not the "Middle East conflict", it's becoming a war on children. And we are becoming numb to this global shame.

H/T: Ισραήλ-Παλαιστίνη: Έτσι θα τελειώσει

Last time I checked Israel is not “the occupation” in Gaza! I guess anti-Semitism is at an all time high in Greece as well as other countries. Greeks forgot about the Greek Jews who were murdered by Hitler. They look at what is happening in Gaza and they blame Israel. Well, what about Hamas!? Is Israel supposed to sit back and take it? No, I don’t think so.

The most disturbing thing about this article are the translations! If you take the Greek and plug it into Google Translate the English is very different from the English Article that is offered on the same site.

They have the nerve to say “history tells us” – really? What does history tell us? Is it your version of history? Is it history omitting facts over time or is it propaganda?

Why should Israel “take a hit” economically when they are already taking rockets from Hamas?

H/T: Israel-Palestine: This is how it ends

If you read through the English version it’s pretty horrifying how they’ve painted Israel. Can you even for a single second believe that they acknowledge Hamas as a body of people who are already under “crippling sanctions?”

Israel is the size of New Jersey and they are surrounded by people whose goal is to wipe them off the planet. Have you ever read the charter of Hamas? Don’t read the Greek version! Read it from the Yale website and then translate it to the Greek language.

I don’t know if this AVAAZ.org is a Greek website. I do know there are many translations at the top of the page that have gone wrong.

Israel is not the occupation in Gaza. It is Hamas that is the occupation in Gaza. Instead of boycotting Israel and getting in bed with Hamas, the nations should be getting together to help Israel stop Hamas from terrorizing the innocent civilians on both sides.

Questioning Authority: People Who Blindly Obey

Once again—trust your own instincts and anxieties, especially those concerning people who claim that dominating others, violence, war, or some other violation of your conscience is the grand solution to some problem. Do this even when, or especially when, everyone around you has completely stopped questioning authority. Recite to yourself what Stanley Milgram taught us about obedience: At least six out of ten people will blindly obey to the bitter end an official-looking authority in their midst. ~Martha Stout
