Yeah and I’m in Bangkok for tonight. One night in Bangkok and the world is my oyster. We are talking about the same nation that promotes the use of amphetamines right? Its all fun and games until someone bombs a village by accident.
I assume you’re referring to the air force pilots? Valid point, but whose to say that he’s in the air force?
I enjoy your posts Growing Boy, but you seem to have it out for all the wrong people. LE just enforces the laws on the books and military just follow the rules laid down, fair or not, right or not.
The real culprits in all this are the lawmakers…especially the ones who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground but use the fear-based rantings on steroids to increase their popularity.
The other culprits are the scientists giving them bad info to feed this, along with the media for not being a watchdog and asking questions, but rather blindly following it for a "good story.
Finally, John Q. Taxpayer who is so fucking stupid these days. Mr./Mrs. Taxpayer/Citizen who no longer reads…let alone reads with an open mind, questions what he has just read, and acts upon his civic liberties/duties. Instead, this obese, lazy culture that has grown up on the backbone of the true, idealized American sucks down everything they are told without blinking…and definitely without searchig for the truth of their own accord. I suppose it’s hard to think with all that transfat, McDonalds-fueled lard surrounding your arteries, crushing off blood flow and what little brain activity that remains.
I forget where I was going with this post…besides this is cutting into reruns of my favorite sitcoms like Friends and Seinfeld and gosh…The Biggest Loser is on at 8. Seriously, steroids are bad…my congressman says so.
Not at all. I merely stand away and watch it all crumble to pieces only pointing at certain individuals and events. As for my position on LE and the Army. I have military vets as friends. I have nothing but outmost respect for the people fighting for me and others. It takes a different breed of human to go out there and get your hands in the fire. As for LE, I know they have a job to do just like I do, but in my experience I’ve only met one individual that was a true honorable officer of the law. I think I’ve mentioned my feelings regarding this truly honorable man. It all does stem from the powers that be but what do you suggest? Anarchy? I learned along time ago that my vote, my voice, my being didn’t have an effect on the things around me because I wasn’t in a certain income bracket. I really don’t want to get into this in this forum.
So my closing statements are: I have nothing but outmost for those fighting for the pussies in Washington and by default the Union, LE has a job to do but due to human nature its make-up is flawed and corruption is rampant among ANY department, and in conclusion there’s not a God damned thing you or I can do about it but merely stand away, not make waves and watch it all crumble.

Reading your post sounds very very familiar . This kind of corruption is evident in many parts of the world and the people are powerless to challenge it or even qustion it .Time and time again the people in power take liberties at the expense of the people lower below them on the food chain .
Its sickening but like you i have decided its not something i can change so have chosen to turn a blind eye and get on with whats important to me.
Youre right though,it is going to crumble…
