My general thoughts and reviews about anything and everything.

Love the Rain

So, it is raining. It is a beautiful night. I love the difference of days as my days change from day to day. I’m really enjoying it. This is just a point I wanted to make it known that I’m ready for a great summer coming up. Crazy summer … with rain, love, and wild times. We’ll see. Nothing much here to say – just wanted to put that out there. Goodnight. Here is some chocolate rain!

Maybe a Political Revolution is Here?

I am political. You understand that during this times and all of the joke news stations (CNN, FOX) want to talk about the bullshit between parties and internally, do they really see what is happening? Do they see the writing on the wall?

Bernie Sanders has expressed his interest in a political revolution. This seems to be a slogan, but in reality, I can see this happening on both sides right now. It is the birth of a new, four or more, party system. We have had this happen before in U.S. politics. We have also heard the rumbling of this with the independents in the 1990s and the tea party in recent years. In the past, however, there was a big change in Republican’s and Democrats, and before that there was changes in popular parties such as the Whigs and Federalists. It isn’t new, but has not happened in a while.

The future is bright. Don’t get me wrong, it may sound bleak but it is bright. The biggest problem is that it is so bright we need to wear shades. The reference there could be to the meanings behind the song or just a realization that things are not as always as bright as they look. I can see both sides. With some “carpet bombing” comments I see more of the song meanings, but on the side, there is some darkness being spread with one of the fractions.

So, to clarify. Yes, there is a political revolution that has been simmering. This year the foundation has been visible if not firmly created. I can see the near future, sometime in the next 10 years, a four party split. To start, on the far right we have Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Each of them have said some rather hateful things about certain groups. I will call this the “Dark Right.” We will agree to disagree. Next we have a group of people on the right who are more closer to the center or are “moderate” to a certain sense. I will call those the “Light Right” to entertain a similar name. This group is losing in Republican debates and it may include John Kasich. This may be closer to the Republican that people are fond of similar to Eisenhower and maybe Reagan. Many other examples may better. The next is the middle “progressive” or liberal. This group is closer to a moderate, liberal, person with some conservative points. I would compare this to either John F. Kennedy or Bill Clinton. They are forward and not moderate Republican yet still moving in a way that are positive to issues that the other side not consider. This would be rights to minorities and the different sexes and sexual orientation. I call this the “Gray Hype” for similar reasons previously mentioned with other groups based on my views. The last of the four groups or parties being created or will be notice in one way or another in the next decade is the left or progressive “extreme” that some will call it. This group obviously includes Bernie Sanders. I would call this the “European Wannabe Left” of the U.S. They are very left compared to the rest on social, political, and foreign policy issues. This group values more of the western European political side, and the issues of this group is commonly young and the most progressive and educated.

This is my concerns in short without real, true changes ahead. It is a different place politically and worldly for the United States. It may not be the best place, but it is a place where the change is real and will be seen in the coming decades. I like it, I hope for it, and I respect it. Good luck. Hope to be here when it changes or after the next mushroom cloud.

Are You Feeling the Bern Now, Mr Krabs?

Politics is my thing. Have you heard about this guy named Bernie Sanders? Well, you should have unless you have lived under a rock for the past couple decades or if you’re an ignorant piece of shit. Anyway, whether you agree or not, I like him, I like his policies, and I am “feeling the Bern.”

So, why am I writing this short little piece? Well, I have seen a lot go down over the years. The gap between the poor and the wealthy have increased with income equality, the middle class in the U.S. has declined, and people are still without health insurance (although better than before the Affordable Care Act). With a more progressive and European-styled policy person, this can change and should change. Franklin D. Roosevelt started it in the United States and few liked it then. Today, Sanders has drawn some criticism because of misunderstanding. Seriously, he is the FDR of the modern U.S. history who will and can take us from our recession (or I would really argue a depression) through the past decade.

Do you “feel the Bern” now? I hope you do eventually. Read about him. Read about how someone came up with the awesome slogan and hashtag of #feelthebern. Someone named Winnie Wong started it all. Interesting stuff, but I know you can read so do it. Do it now. Feel it. Are you feeling it now Mr. Krabs?

WTF Oregon?

Ok. This will be short because I am busy and tired. Seriously, Oregon. Why is what you call an “occupier” and I call a criminal group (at least) allowed to dictate snacks and how they want to be treated legally? Oregon “occupiers” a.k.a. terrorist organization or militia wants a “common law” jury to find them right or wrong in a court or legal proceeding. This is ridiculous. Thieves, criminals, thugs, terrorists, have taken public property and demanded it to be given to them or else physical harm. Where is there an issue here that does not require and demand legal and lawfully violent action to uphold the rule of law? This is America where people cannot steal and if they do and threaten another human being for a political agenda, they are criminals and terrorists to be dealt with immediately and not by allowing for their demands. Gosh. I don’t want it to end violently. I really do not, but there needs to be a law of the land action. If they respond with force, force should be taken. This is not an issue of government stealing land, it is an issue of people stealing public land. GOSH! WTF!!!

Alleged Terrorists Caught! Not in Oregon

Good news, everyone! The federal officials in the United States have made several arrests in terrorist related incidents! These include alleged connections with terrorism, and these “alleged terrorists” were arrested in California and Texas. Interesting points about this include none of the arrests were about alleged terrorists with intent to do harm in the United States, and those arrests did not even include a terrorist group in Oregon that has threatened the death of police.

It is great to arrest terrorists or alleged terrorists or people connected with terrorism. The problem is that in Oregon there is a group of rednecks that have taken land and a building, claimed it their own, and have threatened to kill anyone who tries to take it back from them. As I have previously mentioned, this by definition, is terrorism. Why have they not arrested or attempted arrested these guys in Oregon? Is it because they are white and not like the alleged terrorists in Texas and California who were connected with other organizations? Makes sense. White privilege allows for terrorism in the United States.

Recently a sheriff in the area of the Oregon Terrorists has tried to talk to the group. They met, face-to-face, and he politely asked them to leave. They of course told him they were not going to leave. So, what did the sheriff do? He accepted that and left quietly with his tail between his legs. Seriously? These people have taken over public land and building, threatened the death of anyone who tries to stop them, and not only are they not called terrorists, no action is taken against them! What on Earth is wrong with United States’ tough stance on terrorism? Citizens (white) threaten death, steal, and still are provided with their rights to continue to commit crimes on a community. If this does not end soon, it will be a huge black eye on issues related to “white privilege” and terrorism in the U.S. Of course peaceful is better, but these want-to-be cop killers have no intention of being peaceful. So be it. And so it goes, so it goes.
