The Danger of Engaging in Perpetual War

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following link, which I originally posted to my own wall in August of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, along with commentary…

Our Greatest National Security Threat? Perpetual War:
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/08/12/our-greatest-national-security-threat-perpetual-war

(William Astore) The United States is now engaged in perpetual war with victory nowhere in sight.  Iraq is chaotic and scarred. So, too, is Libya. Syria barely exists. After 15 years, “progress” in Afghanistan has proven eminently reversible as efforts to rollback recent Taliban gainscontinue to falter. The Islamic State may be fracturing, but its various franchises are finding new and horrifying ways to replicate themselves and lash out. Having spent trillions of dollars on war with such sorry results, it’s a wonder that key figures in the U.S. military or officials in any other part of America’s colossal national security state and the military-industrial complex (“the Complex” for short) haven’t spoken out forcefully and critically about the disasters on their watch.

My Commentary: Not exactly rocket science, and yet, it still remains an ever-elusive concept to most, somehow…

Will Hollywood Hillary-Supporters Leave the Country, as They Threatened to Do?

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following status update here, posted by political activist, Paul Joseph Watson, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Hillary-supporting Actresses, Lena Dunham and Miley Cyrus, have some packing to do!

Paul Joseph Watson: Dear Miley Cyrus & Lena Dunham – when are you leaving the country? 😡

My Commentary: On another brighter note, maybe these two slobs will follow through with their threats to leave if the glowing orange caveman wins! 🙂

Cop Pulls Assault Rifle, Threatens Protesters For Their “Constitutional Bullsh**”:
http://countercurrentnews.com/2015/02/cop-pulls-assault-rifle-on-protesters/

(M. David) A Houston, Texas cop was recently caught on video illegally detaining protesters and threatening them with his department-issued assault rifle. His reason? Protesters were spouting what he called “Constitutional bullsh**.”

The video was recorded by Open Carry Texas and uploaded to their YouTube channel after a recent peaceful assembly where they advocated for “Constitutional Carry,” which is already legal in Texas when it comes to rifles of any sort (scroll down for video).

My Commentary: But, according to progressives, only cops should have guns…

Elites — Not the “Ignorant Masses” — Pose the Greatest Threat to Global Society:

(Jake Johnson) In January, at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland — largely a meeting of corporate elites and political leaders — the billionaire CEO Steve Schwarzman courteously granted an interview to Bloomberg Television.

When asked about the American political scene, Schwarzman responded just as many of his colleagues have: With utter bewilderment.

The Injustice of Peace-Molesting Town and City “Ordinances”

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Jordan K

Jordan K.: Parked my truck + horse trailer in front of my own house for a few minutes to use the bathroom before a trip up north to pick up hay. Had this on my truck immediately. I hate California government and the piece of shit neighbors that called me in. Montana here I come.

E’naaniibwit M.: We’re eventually going to see you on a episode of Edge of Alaska lol

Ryan P.: Wow… and to think that these people who called on you probably live on the land that YOUR family sold them… ungrateful bastards.

Daniel R.: Pieces of shit

Kris K.: Wow, that’s really stupid

Jordan K.: Next time I’m just going to pull the entire rig up on my front lawn.

Rayn: My husband and I were forced out of NJ with our RV because of these same exact sort of peace-molesting “ordinances.” No victim, no crime!

Jordan K.: I just called the contact name and number. Greg was confrontational with me at first. He said I wouldn’t be able to park my trailer on the street at all. Then later in the conversation he admitted he guessed my trailer was about 18′ long. I then asked him why, if it wasn’t over 25′, wouldn’t I be able to park it in the street. He then mentioned the widths and heights, which I assured him it wasn’t over. After that he admitted I would be allowed to park it in the street as long as I followed all the guidelines on this paper. Even if it was over 80″ I could still park the trailer on the street at all times between 4pm and 7:30am 🙂Sometimes telling somebody what they can’t do isn’t any better then having them find out what they CAN do. My neighbors are gonna get a whole lotta trailer love in the coming months.

Jordan K.: I asked him if I could pull it up on my front lawn… nope – can’t put anything on a non paved surface.

Jordan K.: So then I asked him if I could park it in the driveway disconnected next to my truck everything on pavement. I can do that. I can also park between the right hours like I mentioned before. Either way, these neighbors are asshats.

Nellie K.: So sorry that happened to you!

Jordan K.: It’s ok… I’m dealing with it. It’s just a bad feeling when you know one of your neighbors has it in for you.
