I often wonder….

Why certain people, who have absolutely no one in their family over seas, who have no idea what this entire war was actually about, and who have never once had one thought of joining any armed forces; why are these certain people so against the war ending in Iraq?  Is it because our president finally grew a pair and said, ya know what I’ve played along with this charade long enough, it’s time to get our troops back?  Or is it because no one actually knows WHY we were in Iran or Iraq to being with?  Personally I think it’s the latter, now this is my opinion I have no facts, NO ONE does! So, I am really asking why the fuck were we at war for so long, and what exactly was the outcome?!

Saddam Hussien is dead because of this war you may say….okay, so what good does that do for me, the consumer, the average Jane working for a living (not in the oil industry) what did his death do to make my life any better. I’m really not seeing any silver lining on that one.  Oooo big bad America killed off a person of power, why, in my opinion, to let other countries know we are still the super power we can still do whatever the fuck we want without consequence. Nice, real nice. I’m going to get REAL selfish here and say I don’t give a shit about how mister Hussein was treating HIS people, its high time we stop fighting other countries battles for them.  It’s not like they return the favor, and really nothing is going to change for them if the people can’t keep up the attitude of we aren’t going to take a tyrant any longer.  SO there was billions of dollars out the fucking window, thank you Karl Rove you piece of dog shit.

Bin Laden….let’s go there.  He was behind a horrific experience for us American‘s. He was behind killing a lot of innocent people for the simple fact of him and the people who followed him not believing in the way we live our lives, in the religion we choose or don’t choose.  Sound familiar? We do it ALL THE FUCKING TIME!!!!!!!  I’m not saying what he did should be forgiven or will be because we are a bunch of hypocrites.   All I’m saying is did this huge ass fucking war have to happen because of him?  You mean to tell me that all the resources we have, all the intelligence we have, it took us over 10 years to find this man and bring him to justice (which we never did, we just killed him without obtaining any true answers as to why he did such a horrid thing?) Not to mention all you assholes on the ‘I hate Obama ban wagon’ guess when this goal of YOURS was achieved……that’s right during his presidency.  I believe a thank you is in order to our president, you wanted this you got it and you are still thankless.  What a bunch of fucking brats you are!

So in the 3.5 years that the president has been in office he’s achieved your goal in the war, shifted the focus of the war from Iraq to Afghanistan, and putting the emphasis on reducing terrorism where it should have been all along, lifted BUSH restrictions for federal funding on embryonic stem cell research. Signed the Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act to stop fraud and wasteful spending in the defense procurement and contracting system, Established Credit Card Bill of Rights, preventing credit card companies from imposing arbitrary rate increases on customers. Health Care Reform Bill, preventing insurance companies from denying insurance because of a pre-existing condition (thank you from my autistic son), tax cuts for up to 3.5 million small businesses to help pay for employee health care coverage, cut prescription drug cost for medicare recipients by 50%. Significantly increased funding for the Violence Against Women Act, Increased funding for national parks and forests by 10%, Expanded hate crime law in the US to include sexual orientation through the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Provided $12.2 Billion in new funding for Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, extended Benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees (wow you’d think the state legislation would follow the leader of the free world on this….), appointed more openly gay officials than any other president in US history. Created more private sector jobs in 2010 than during entire Bush years, signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, restoring basic protections against pay discrimination for women and other workers. Provided travel expenses to families of fallen soldiers to be on hand when the body arrives at Dover AFB, launched recovery.gov to track spending from the Recovery Act, providing transparency and allowing the public to report fraud, waste, or abuse. Increased infrastructure spending (roads, bridges, power plants…) after years of neglect….I mean really the list can go on and on.  OH and by the way he also gave a tax break to all the companies who out source jobs to other countries as an incentive to bring the jobs back home, so if you want to be angry by the lack of jobs in this country maybe you should direct your anger to the faulty party which is your big businesses that you all tend to look over.

What I’m trying to get at is this, one man is the face of this country, that one man is NOT the only one in control, that one man does not make all the decisions. If that were the case we’d have a dictator, which we do not.  So get your fucking facts straight before you go electing some asshole from the G.O.P.  I mean really have you see the jokes they have running?!?!?!

 

Good day to you!
