Later tonight Obama will give his farewell speech and brag about what a magnificent job he’s done. And my Facebook feed will balloon with “Four More Years” memes and teary posts of what a fine man Obama is and how beautiful his family is. (For all I know, Stalin had cute kids. Doesn’t matter.)
So here’s my reminder of how many people Obama KILLED just in 2016. He authorized the dropping of at least 26,171 BOMBS on people in seven countries. Men, women, and children bombed to death.
And these aren’t crappy bombs like the ones we see the aftermath of at a marathon run or an airport baggage area. These are the best, most destructive bombs your money can buy. Ultra high explosives that vaporize concrete walls and kill kids sleeping in their beds.
Obama kills more people during his golf game than any ‘Most Wanted’ terrorist kills in an entire, miserable career of death-making.
And this chart is just 2016!
There’s seven more years of similar or worse bombings and civilian deaths from the misty-eyed President who chokes up at the thought of those poor kids in Sandy Hook. As long as it isn’t Sandy Hook, Iraq that is.
If I believed in hell, at least I’d have the satisfaction of thinking Obama will rot there next to G. W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Osama Bin Laden, and the rest of the people who think justice and a better world flows from killing and dominating people.
Instead, I get to read about how people think Obama is a wonderful man.
Sometimes I feel like I live among Jihadists who love the killing, and are completely certain it’s both necessary and justified.
I mean, we can’t let other countries run their own affairs. We have to bomb them until they do what we say, and sell us their resources for cheap. Because, freedom & democracy!
Screw Obama and the new killers who will replace him.
Some day we’ll abandon this ridiculous system and anthropologists will marvel at how billions of people could openly endorse evil just because it was sold to them as a “lesser” evil.
School children will ask, “But how could they believe it was a good thing to kill people? How could they love the people responsible for so much death?” Likely their teachers will give the same answers we’ve gotten about centuries of superstition, slavery, and the oppression of women. “Well, kids, they had very primitive beliefs and they just didn’t know any better.”
For the record, some of us know better.
Following yesterday’s mass killing of five people at Ft. Lauderdale airport, allegedly by Esteban Santiago, who served in Iraq from April 2010 to February 2011, I wonder if Mr. Trump will issue the following press release: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of all US veterans re-entering the United States […]
We are all born into a world that operates on very old software. Software that was designed centuries ago and operates on principles and parameters that would be laughable if not for the human suffering and impediment to the advancement of the species it ensures. Citizenship Some people never really become aware of this, but […]
Those of us who come from the Libertarian, Anarchist, Capitalist, Voluntaryist or similar schools of thought are used to dealing with coercive elements who lay claim to our property, particularly in the form of confiscating our “fair share” of taxes. The coercers begin with some premise that gives them, they say, the moral right to […]
When the bad financial news hit the world in 2008 Greece had a debt to GDP ratio of about 113%. That’s around where the US is right now, although with the monkey numbers all these countries use it’s hard to know how bad things really are.
I didn’t grow up in America. But as a child I was still propagandized by my State. Every morning in the school classroom we had to stand and sing God Save the Queen, and later, O Canada and recite The Lord’s Prayer. The implication was that, above all, our political ruler(s) must be preserved and […]
I was recently interviewed by James Guzman over at Borderless. Borderless is interested in breaking down both the political and psychological barriers that restrict us from living life on our own terms. They focus on the pragmatic, real world ways it can be done right now by virtually anyone. I hope you listen to the […]
My kids spent a significant portion of their childhoods growing up in a little town in Idaho. It’s a lot smaller than Tikrit, or Basra or Helmand province, but little Idaho City and Boise County can serve as an illustration of a principle. What principle? Well, the principle of people of simple means resisting […]
This article in Business Insider talks about how some of our most popular – and lucrative – new technologies come directly from US Military research. Capital intensive research and development created LCD displays, lithium-ion batteries, signal compression, multi-touch screens, GPS and cellular technologies, to name a few. What the article does not illuminate is how […]
I get so tired of people waving national flags and bragging about how they live in Freedom. Because they don’t. Freedom is the condition of every individual having complete control over his or her life and property. Therefore, – if somebody can successfully vote to have your money taken from you, you don’t live in […]
In their never-ending quest to garner enough votes to stay in power politicians have several time-proven tactics. One of these tactics is to promise that initiatives will “create new jobs” for the community. This is how a pure government program works. They announce there will be a new $100 annual tax. However, that tax will […]
