Boots On the Ground in Uganda

22 10 2011

The United States is sending 100 combat troops into Uganda, as Advisors and trainers, according to CNN. Troops may also end up in other African countries such as South Sudan, The Central African Republic, and the Democratic republic of the Congo. This Is coming at a time when America is over stretched with 2 major wars and operations in Yemen; and is in economic turmoil. It seems strange that we only seem to “help” nations that are rich in natural resources. Could it be that we are really there to help ourselves to their oil? The president assures us that the troops will only be going as advisors. One is reminded of President Johnson when he said the same thing about Vietnam war, and we all know how that turned out. We already have to undeclared wars, and we don’t need another. The 2 wars were are currently in have Bankrupted this country. President Obama is proving that he is just like Bush with a higher IQ.

We Are the 99 Percent Whether You like it or Not

20 10 2011

What started out as a single protest by a group calling themselves the 99 Percent, has spread across the country and around the world. The Occupy Movement is expressing the disenfranchisement that the working class, both blue collar and white-collar, feel towards what they see as the rich white minority. Fox news has tried to soil the name of the movement by claiming that the protestors are the “liberal fringe” and don’t pay taxes. They want to paint the protestors as dirty Hippies that don’t know what they are talking about, or even what their message is. Of course I would expect a news channel owned by Rupert Murdoch, one of the richest tycoons in the world to spread such a message.
It is no surprise that the rich, and the media that they own would try to demonize protests that are aimed at them. Did they think they could continue to screw over the majority of the population and meet with no resistance? A large percent of the protestors do pat taxes and are very well educated. the Occupy Movement is decrying corporate greed and an extreme disproportionate distribution of wealth.

A War Torn Decade

10 10 2011

Today marks the 1o year anniversary of the Afghanistan war. Scores of Soldiers have lost their lives, and thousands of civilians have been killed and about a trillion dollars has been spent on this war. The Original goals of the war were to catch Bin Laden dead or alive, and purge the small South Central Asian nation of Afghanistan, both of which have been accomplished. So, Why are we still there? Are we still their? To nation build , like both Bush and Obama both said what weren’t going to do? Are we there to overthrow the Taliban, A job that the previous commander of the war, General Mc Chrystal said was nearly impossible to Achieve? Or, is the Trillions of dollars worth of steel under Afghanistan the reason for staying?

Obama Pitches Jobs Bill at Press Conference

7 10 2011

President Obama pitched his jobs bill during a Live press conference, broadcasted by ABC News. During his opening statement  the president mentioned that republicans believe that the best thing for the economy was tax cuts for the rich. The tax cuts for wealthy Americans which  began during the Bush presidency are largely blamed  as being one of the reason for the economic collapse. Obama, when speaking about dealing with a Republican congress, said that there was a lot of game playing and that Republicans were more interested in scoring political points than helping the economy. Since  republicans took over as the majority of congress in January there has been a standoff between Democratic law makers and Republicans; which has made progress almost impossible.

Cyber City Chronicles part 1

6 10 2011

Jack felt the cool breeze upon his face while he gazed at the night sky. He took one last puff of his cigarette, then flicked it into the street. He thought about kicking the habit, then thought that it wouldn’t matter because the atmosphere had become so polluted that even the healthiest person had a 50/50 chance of getting lung cancer. Jack looked up at the sign on the building which read “Jack Devoe, Private Investigator”. He hadn’t had any business in several days, and when he did it was usually stuff like helping people find their lost robot , or spying on someone’s cheating husband. Jack was aching for a real case, something he could sink his teeth into. He wanted some action, because in real life being a private detective was boring. It’s nothing like those old black and white movies, not exciting at all.

Things hadn’t always been this way, at one time Jack Devoe had been a hotshot detective, he was one of the best. He was a homicide detective for the Cyber City Police Department, until his temper cost him his job. It was the Cyber City slayer case, Jack had caught the guy. He started thinking about what the creep did to those women and just lost it. Billy Branson was his name, he was a harvester, you know the kind of thug that kills people to harvest their organs and sell them on the black market. The creep chose female victims because they were easy targets, they didn’t put up much of a fight. The man was a coward. To think that Branson did it all for money.

Anyway, Jack knew Billy Branson was guilty, so he beat the snot out of the scrawny bastard. Not only did the Police department get their pants sued off of them, but the case got thrown out, the defense convinced the jury that Jack tampered with evidence. So, that was the end of Jack Devoe’s Police career. He missed those days, back on the police force. Now he longed for the adventures of his past years. “What can you do?” He muttered to himself. He flicked his cigarette into the street and went inside.
