Insane People Insane World Part 3 The Fuzz

I want to explore the issue of police a little more.  If you recognized the term “the Fuzz” congratulations you are old.  For those of you young whippersnappers who are unfamiliar with that term “the Fuzz” is 70’s and 80’s slang for the police.

Police have way too much power these days.  I believe this power is perceived power rather than actual lawful power.  I think that departments are assuming control where they have no legal authority to assume control.  Look at how the police are becoming militarized.  Today it is becoming more and more common to see police looking like some combat force, rather than the customary neighborhood cop walking a beat.

Good question

Good question

Cops have a tough job, there is no doubt about it.  However consider this, crime statistics keep dropping but the police activity keeps intensifying.  Why do the cops automatically assume I am some kind of felon when they stop me for speeding or other minor traffic violations?  Why do cops think they have a right to ask me for identification?  Why do cops automatically assume I am doing something illegal?  Why do cops come after minor law breakers when they know where the real bad guys are?  Why have cops stopped patrolling for the people and started managing the people? Watch this exchange I found on YouTube.

If you watched the video you saw a young man who was pretty shaken up over his encounter with the police, and no wonder.  The first cop clearly has his hand on his gun.  The second cop looks like he is a gunslinger in the old west with his gun slung low for a quick draw.  I have never been to Middletown, Connecticut but I can’t imagine it is worse than Detorit, Michigan.  Also notice the military type uniform on the police in small town America.  These guys look like they are ready for an invasion not like they are serving and protecting a community.  By the end of the video the young man is shaking so badly he cannot hold the camera straight but he challenges the cops with the constitution they swore to protect against all enemies foreign and domestic.  Unfortunately, they seem to be the domestic enemy.  This young man showed great bravery, but he also was asking for a confrontation.  Police seem to be extremely nervous whenever you video tape public areas or persons.  Especially when you videotape them.  Here is another example.

This video shows why it is necessary to record cops.  Cops are out of control.  They have a perception of power which is not granted to them through the constitution.  I am sick and tired of the idea that because you have a badge and a gun you are my boss.  I am your boss, and you are here to serve and protect me.  That means that I don’t have to identify myself, you must identify yourself.  I am not guilty of any crime, even if you arrest me I am not guilty.  The state has the burden of proving me guilty.  Just because you claim to be suspicious does not mean I have committed a crime.

 I am sick and tired of the idea that because you have a badge and a gun you are my boss

I am sick and tired of the idea that because you have a badge and a gun you are my boss.

You can spend hours watching YouTube videos of cops violating rights, beating innocent people, killing people and falsely arresting people.  It is disturbing and it has nothing to do with race, everything to do with these out of control cops.

Another issue is minor traffic violations.  Think about it, do you speed, run red lights, stop signs, make illegal U-turns and commit other traffic violations.  The answer you are searching for is YES, you do.  Everyone who drives has committed minor traffic violations.  I commute roughly 35 miles a day.  I am going to violate the traffic laws from time to time and probably on a weekly basis.  Before you start pointing your finger at me, realize you do the same thing.  If the speed limit is 45 and you are doing 46 YOU LOSE SUCKER, you just violated the law and you are a criminal.  Unfriend me on Facebook, block me on Twitter, send nasty messages to my email, but you are a criminal.  So is everyone else on the road.  I am not a great violator of the law, but I will do 70 in a 60, I will California roll a right turn on red, and certain stop signs.  I will change lanes without signaling, and I will roll down the road sans seat belt.  On the weekends and sometimes during the week I drive for Uber.  Uber is a peer to peer rideshare service which has become very popular in major US cities and around the world.  I probably drive 500-1000 miles a week working Uber.  I am going to violate the traffic laws.

Think about this.  Why are there traffic laws? Most people would say public safety, but I challenge that notion.  If I am doing 70 in a 60 I am probably not going to cause many problems.  Yes, I know, speed kills; but in reality speed does not kill, excessive speed kills.  If I was doing 11o in a 60 now you have a case against me for endangering public safety.  Most speeding tickets are given to people going 10 – 15 miles over the posted limit.  Those folks are not going to cause an accident, they are not endangering other motorists, and they are not endangering themselves in the overwhelming majority of cases.  Nevertheless cops hand out tickets like Jehovah’s Witnesses hand out The Watchtower.  Have you ever asked yourself why?  The answer is clear and undeniable; revenue.  Many cities do not report the amount of revenue they steal from their citizens through “traffic violations.”  If you pass enough laws and ordinances everyone will be guilty and everyone will be forced to pay.  Is this why we have police?

Better get your papers ready.

Better get your checkbook ready.

The Houston Metropolitan area  has over 30 different policing departments, each employees a number of people to keep us safe.  Those people cost money, therefore those departments must justify their existence by writing tickets.  Are they really protecting and serving us?  The bottom line is this, when our rights come into conflict with their revenue our right will be violated.  Everything comes down to money.  Law enforcement in this day and age is very similar to the mafia of days gone by.  They are running a sophisticated and intricate protection racket and every day we applaud them for it.  Cops are not your friend, they are bill collectors with a gun and a badge and you had better watch out for them or you might just be the next Eric Garner.

Insane People Insane World Part 2 The Domestic Front

A note to my 6 or 7 readers:  Sorry for taking so long, this is a huge subject and I fell that if I post everything I write in one sitting you will not read it.  I tend to write 2,000-3,000 words at a time and this seems like a little much.  I have already amended this post and it stands at almost 1800 words and I feel like I haven’t scratched the surface of what I want to say here.  Let me know your thoughts on the subject of the length of my posts; please, and thank you for reading.  (Update: this post is 2,567 words…oops)

Earthquake Concept

In part one we explored the precarious position of our economy and we discovered without a doubt that our government is lying to us.  Not only is our government lying to us, but it is spying on us.  We now know that the NSA has been keeping tabs on our phone calls and records. FISA can suspend your constitutional right to due process and privacy and tap your phone or put your home under surveillance.  The Patriot Act strips many rights from US citizens.  Drones can drop out of the sky and blow you and your kids up while you are on foreign territory. Yes, I know, that guy was Al Qaeda, and he deserved to die; but he was also an American Citizen, and if they are willing to kill him, they are willing to kill you.  If they are willing to suspend his right to a fair trial, they are willing to suspend your right to a fair trial. What about Osama Bin Laden, he deserved to die too didn’t he?  Did he deserve to die when he was working for the CIA to undermine Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980’s. Oh is that too tin foil hat conspiracy theorist for you?  Well I will save all of that foreign stuff for another post.  Have you been stopped by the cops lately? Check this out —->https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qUT2uPVlvg I will warn you, the foul language is not the most offensive thing in this video, not by a long shot.

If you watched the video it shows cops abusing their authority.  It seems there are more and more cases of cops absolutely abusing their authority all around this country.  The killing in Ferguson, followed by the choking in New York, followed by the killing of the little boy in Cleveland, it is all ridiculous.  I believe all of these situations resulted in the unnecessary deaths of these two black men, and little boy.  However, these are not isolated to the black community.  White people, Hispanic people, all Americans are subjected to out of control cops.  This has to stop.

How about Ferguson, Missouri? A whole town,  erupted because, well um, because, you see, they uh…why exactly is all of that going on?  Some white crazy ass cracker cop shot a poor innocent African American kid six times execution style.  Now I will not pretend to know all of the details of this issue, I don’t, but for some reason everyone who is participating in the riots in Ferguson knows exactly what happened.  They can burn and loot and kill because they are angry.  They are angry because the Grand Jury refused to indict the cop that killed Micheal Brown.  The fact is I was not there, you were not there, only the cop, the dead man, and now the Grand Jury know w hat really happened, and the Grand Jury refused to indict.   Then we have the whole Eric Garner situation in New York.  That man was also unarmed, also killed by a cop, and he also allegedly committed a minor crime.  Both of these killings are tragic, and shameful, but that does not justify rioting; but you best not say anything against them or you are a racist.

"Hey guys, isn't this just a little bit cliche?"

“Hey guys, isn’t this just a little bit cliche?”

You are also a racist if you think George Zimmerman was innocent.  You are also a racist if you think that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are not great reverends.  You are also racist if you say anything against His Holiness Barrack Obama. You are also racist if you think that private companies and churches shouldn’t pay for birth control and abortions.  You are also racist if you think there is something wrong with gay marriage. You are also racist if you think those folks from Mexico and Central America don’t have a right to come here in any way they choose. You are also a racist if you think Katie Kouric is an air head, and you’re sexist too.  You are also a racist if you give a stupid award to a white girl instead of Beyonce.  You are also a racist if you use the word black in front of African Americans.  You are also racist if you call African Americans black.  You are also racist for reading this paragraph.  You are also racist if you don’t have black friends.  You are also racist if you do have black friends but they are not your best friends.  You are also racist if you have black friends and you say you have black friends when trying to defend yourself against the charge of being racist.  You are also racist if you think Eric Holder is a criminal.  You are also racist if you are a Republican.  You are also a racist if you listen to Country Music.  You are racist if you listen to rock music.  You are racist if you listen to classical music because there has never been a great minority composer of classical music.  You a are also racist if you are white and listen to rap music.  You are also racist if you are a white rapper. You are also a racist if you listen to conservative talk radio, or if you have an AM dial on your radio. You are also a racist if you own a gun.  You are also a racist if you don’t find all of this racist.  You are also a racist if you like fried chicken and watermelon. You are also a racist if you don’t like fried chicken and watermelon. You are also a racist if you use fried chicken and watermelon in the same sentence. Congratulations you are a racist.

I konw, I konw, I went overboard, but hey, that is what I do.  The fact is we are all, everyone single one of us, racist.  I know what you are thinking, I am not racist, to which I will reply, yes you are a racist.  Here is a simple test.  Which racial group is the smartest?  Which racial group has the highest achievers? Which race do you prefer to be your leaders? Which race do you feel more comfortable with as industry leaders?  Which racial group make the best on-air personalities?  Which racial group is best at math?  Most Americans would answer their own racial group for the first 5 questions, that makes you a racist.  All of us would say Asian for the sixth question.  You just laughed, and that makes you racist, but I am more racist because I wrote it.  After all these years we still have a problem with race, and it is getting worse not better.  Our first black President is hated because he is black, and he was also voted for because he is black.  The reality is he is only half black, yet he has managed to further divide this country over the color of our skin.  Insanity.  Prior to Obama racial tensions were easing and things were normalizing.  Black people and white people were finding common ground and things were improving.  Now the wheels are coming off the cart.

Malcom X aka Malcom Little…I wonder if he was my cousin?

 

Slavery was a horrible institution, but it has been over for 151 years.  Think about that.  I am 43, my mother is 66, my grandfather is 90 almost 91. My grandfather was born 61 years after slavery ended.  I have never asked him, but I am guessing he never knew any slaves, but he possibly could have.  Shelia Jackson Lee Democrat congresswoman from mere feet from where I am sitting in Houston, TX claimed to be a slave.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5qR8w2LEtc PREPOSTEROUS, she is only 64 years old! I have a theory on race that I will not expound upon here, but suffice it to say, we are all descended from Noah.  What color was Noah?  Who cares, there are no races except the human race, and as soon as we all begin to realize this truth, there will no longer be racism.  However, there will still be cultureism which is what racism really is.

There is however, something worse than racism.  President Obama has spent tremendous amounts of political capital on dividing this country through class envy.  Remember the “Occupy” movement?  In the Occupy movement the 99% were fighting for their piece of the pie.  The idea was that the 1% has the overwhelming wealth in this country while the 99%ers, you and me, do not have hardly any wealth at all. Why should I fall prey to the ideal that another man should share his wealth with me?  What have I done to merit his wealth?  If the top 1% hold 25% of the nation’s wealth is that truly a problem?  Why does the President constantly bring up the subject.  Why does he continually try to pit the wealthy against the poor?  Why are his definitions of wealthy and poor so obscure?

class war

I have several uncles and they are all successful in their own right, but none of them are rich.  They pay their mortgages, car payments, some of them have multiple houses, one or two have boats, four wheelers, classic cars, etc.  None of them are suffering under any kind of poverty, but again, I have no rich uncle.  Why should they feel anxiety because the guy down the street has more?  Why should they feel like they need to catch up to the millionaire or billionaire down the street? I don’t have that stuff, and I struggle every month to pay my bills.  Perhaps my stinkin’ uncles should kick in and support me.  From each according to his ability, to each according to their need.  Hey uncles, I have needs…I need a boat, I need a four wheeler, or a fifth wheel, shoot, I would even take a classic car or two.

Let’s make it a bit more personal.  Do you have a hard time paying your rent? Phone bill? Cable bill? Electricity bill? Bar bill? Kids soccer bill? Ballet lessons? Baseball lessons? Car payment? Xbox Live subscription? Do you?  There are hardly any Americans left who know what it means to go without.  When I was a kid my family was not wealthy, we were for the most part lower middle class and both of my folks worked.  I did not wear Nike shoes, I didn’t have the cool long sleeve OP shirt, Girbaud jeans, not even Guess jeans.  I did however have a pair or two of parachute pants…please don’t judge me. I didn’t even get Wrangler jeans, I wore Rustlers. I had the knock off Zips tennis shoes. I didn’t play little league, or soccer except for one year of each.  I wasn’t in ballet…I promise, I really wasn’t.  The point is I had to go without, and my kids have had to go without.  Does that mean that George Soros or Bill Gates owe me money.  Should these two fine upstanding American multi-billionaires send some cash my way?  HELL NO!  Do you want to know why?  Bill Gates and George Soros earned their money.  Even if they didn’t earn their money I am not entitled to it in a free market capitalist society.

America employees a free market capitalist model.  That means that individuals and corporations have the right and responsibility to own and conduct business in an open and free marketplace.  Through the years our government has done what they could to stifle and dismantle this system.  The government has increasingly taken control over businesses and industries.  Think about this, almost all homes have mortgages payable to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, VA, or FHA.  Which one or ones of these are not government entities?  If you said none of them you are correct. Fannie and Freddie are both Government Sponsored Entities.  Government Sponsored Entities are created by congress to help people get credit.  Even if you received your loan from Wells Fargo or Bank of America they still use the Fannie and Freddy guidelines to approve your loan and will eventually sell your loan on the secondary market.  What about the radio industry? Television? Electricity, coal, oil, medical, real estate, the National Football League, and Baseball?  All of these industries suffer at the hands of confiscatory government regulation.  The coal industry has suffered greater loss due to regulation than any other industry in history.  I will not bore you with the minutia, but the coal industry has been devastated.  You Kentucky, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania Democrats had better re-think your voting strategy.  Coal has suffered a greater than 60% decline in the last 5 years due to nothing more than government regulations at the direction of the Obama.  Certain areas of the country are and will continue to experience brown outs due to lack of adequate electricity because of this overreach by the government.  All of this is conducted at the will of a rogue government agency known as the Environmental Protection Agency.  How can this be in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

We are becoming a third world nation.  The gap between rich and poor is increasing.  The middle class is beginning to disappear.  Small business are being driven out and taken over by large corporations.  We are all suffering because of the policies of the ever increasing oligarchy.  There are a few who hold and or can manipulate the power, and they are wielding it against us.  We are losing this country one family, one small business, one vote at a time.

One last quick point.  What is the number one profession of our presidents?  Answer: Lawyer.  We keep electing Lawyers to be our president and things keep getting worse.  A lawyer is like a prostitute, they will sell themselves to whomever puts up the money.  They will argue to win, not because they necessarily agree with their own arguments, but because this is their only tool to gain success.  Lawyers are not leaders, they are manipulators.  If we want real change in this country we need to stop electing lawyers and start looking for candidates who are servants of the people.

There is so much to say about the domestic front I do not think I can ever finish, but this is a start.  It seems like at this moment these are the most pressing issues on the national scene.  Of course there is healthcare, and immigration both of which are important and I will try to get something posted on these soon. Feel free to share your thoughts.

 

Yay police...I am so glad you are there to serve and protect me from this hand-cuffed soccer mom.

We Need Revolution Part 1

‘Nuff Said

That’s right, a revolution, of thought that is…

What should Conservatives be looking for in a Presidential candidate? Should we look for the devastating good looks of a Magical Mormon like Mitt Romney? Come on now, you know he was the best looking candidate in the running this year, and yes I am including Michelle Bachman. Should we go for someone more Gangnam Style like a Bobby Jindal? Should we reach into the Conservative trash bag and pull out a Sarah Palin? Maybe we should go all gangsta and get us a Chris Christie or Marco Rubio? Or how about back to Texas, we can throw in our own Jr. Senator Ted Cruz, or maybe put up another Bush, Jed hasn’t been President yet. (How did a Hispanic fellow get a name like Ted? Come on you Cubans; give your kids better names than Ted! I had a guy from El Salvador do some yard work for me, his name is Dennis…true story.)

Maybe we need to go down a whole different road. Maybe we need a candidate with principles and the ability to convey conservative ideas to the public. When the personality has played out and the novelty has worn off, we need someone who can tell Americans that we are the right choice for the future. We need someone who can deliver the goods from the political pulpit as well as lead with the strength of resolve like Patton.

Here is what the Republicans had better do in the future if they wish to remain competitive.

1. STOP with the abortion nonsense. That’s right, I said stop with the abortion nonsense. Most of the country is pro-life but abortion is still legal. In 1968 we elected a pro-life president, also in 1972, 1980, 1988, 2000, and 2004, yet abortion is still legal. How can this be? Because the President has no power to write laws. Congress is where this battle is important. We cannot be one issue voters. We must elect Congressmen and Senators who are willing to put a bullet in the head of abortion. As of yet, we have not had one.

2. STOP the SPENDING! George Bush started us down the reckless road of out of control spending. How did he do it? By getting us involved in a land war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Suddenly deficits meant nothing and the spending flood gates were opened. The Democrats gladly ran through them and the barn door still isn’t closed.

3. STOP the WARMONGERING. Seriously, do we ever learn? From the Gulf War to Afghanistan and Iraq we have buried ourselves in war debt for no good reason. Now the Chinese are buying our debt and one day, if we are not careful, we will be at war with them too. Check out this site to see the cost of war since 2001 http://costofwar.com/ Just for Afghanistan and Iraq alone each family owes more than $18,500 to pay for our war expenses. Who gets this money? Warmongers get the money, those who have an interest in the war continuing because they are profiting from it. The sad fact is war is expensive, and men and material are required to wage war. I am not against any company making money on the war, they are necessary, I am against continuing a war with no stated mission, and no foreseeable end. I believe President Bush made a mistake going to war against Afghanistan and Iraq. Of course I do not have all of the facts, but I think we can all agree that WMD was a bunch of BS!

3. START getting Dirty Harry mad when the Democrats lie about our agenda. How many times have you seen some dim-witted soft-spoken Republican go on T.V. and not defend himself against egregious Democrat lies, 100, 1000, 158,362??? Republicans need to shed the nice guy image, besides; the Republicans are the only ones who think they have a nice guy image. Romney ran a weak campaign, he didn’t attack Obama’s record, he didn’t attack Obama’s policies, and he didn’t drive home the Conservative agenda. We need someone like Clint Eastwood, not Pee Wee Herman to forward Conservative ideas.
