We are turning in to a third world country. I know I rant a lot about the economy and the political discord among those we have chosen to run this country.
We also choose these to protect our constitutional rights and protect us from injustice. So much for that ideal. Time and again, over the last fifteen years I posted and wrote about corruption and abuse of our judicial system. Now, on the internet, you can see the police brutality even murder of our innocent ( until proven guilty, right) and innocent (not suspected or involved in a crime) countrymen.
One thing I also taken note of is that those that consider themselves involved are doing no better than sitting at a computer ( including cell phones now) and clicking away at links.
It's a joke, on us! No one cares how many pictures you take, post or share, those in the law enforcement know you are not going do any more than sit on your butt and wring your hands.
Law enforcement is not just your local police and sherif , it is your city council, your county commission, your district judge, your state house, your state senate, your governor, your congress person, senator, justice department, the FBI, your Supreme Court and the president, and the juries that are selected at all levels.
A friend indeed
We must not be ashamed at all when we screw people over until we need them. That is what our common culture has become, has it not. We have friends, then we have "friends with benefits", we have marriages with prenuptials , so it goes.
Did we not try to create unrest in Iran in 2009 after their elections,
http://tombstone001.blogspot.com/2009/06/as-iran-burns.html?m=0 Luckily Iran did not end up in same place as say Syria, Iraq or Egypt, we tried.
We tried to implicate Iran in various terror plots against the US, no matter how far fetched and improbable, we tried.
We said that Iranians were helping Bashar in Syria while McCain was out there "hamming it up" with our favorite terrorists.
http://tombstone001.blogspot.com/2012/03/fix-is-in-ii.html?m=0 Of course we were supporting the terrorists in Syria , still are, we trained them and paid for their equipment but mow the snakes are biting, did I not talk about snake handlers a year ago?
So here we are asking for help from Iran, can they be trusted? Can Iranians be trusted? What of the give the terrorist a free passage to the gulf, then?
