SNL Skit, but Dad it’s just ISIS

Saw this skit last night. It is a takeoff on a Toyota ad and I liked it.
Posted this on Facebook and one of my friends there, told me he disagreed with my opinion, stating he thought it was in bad taste.
My response was along the lines of, making fun of ISIS is a good way to declaw them.
Upon further review I think this skit was making fun of America’s obsession with ISIS thanks to the constant barrage of reports from our corporate controlled news.
To the best of my knowledge 5 or 6 young American girls have tried to go to Syria to join ISIS.
If we as Americans are really concerned about the welfare of our young girls, we should be concentrating on the pedophiles and sex traffickers acting with media silence.
Other than an occasional sting operation by 20/20 or other such shows we hear nothing about this problem.
Here is a stat from the Polaris project. “In 2013, the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline, operated by Polaris, received reports of 3,609 sex trafficking cases inside the United States.”
This comes out to almost 10 cases per day, yet this gets no press. We all are told to be afraid, be very afraid, the evil ISIS is coming to take our children.
This is all part of the War profiteers goal of getting American troops and dollars involved in the religious/civil war going on in the mid-east.

And another report…

You be the judge, but I think America has been bamboozled and our priorities are not in the right place.

America’s Real Fears !!

Much has been broadcast in recent network and cable news outlets regarding ISIS and the threats they impose on America. It is blasted at us on an almost daily basis.

Well listen up my friends, we do have things to fear in America. Things that are much more fearful than the 20,000 or so Sunni fanatics raising hell in the Mideast.

Number one fear should be the semi-stable neighbor that has an arsenal in his spare bedroom. They are out there my friends and they are in your neighborhood. They have the full support of the NRA and to a lesser extent the Republicans. This does not excuse the Democrats, they also fear the NRA and remain silent on the issue of gun control.

Another fear would be the various radical groups that have grown in both number and support since Obama was first elected president.

The Oath Keepers is just one of these groups and should bring fear to all. This group of current and former military and law enforcement officers believe they can disobey any orders given if they violate the U.S. Constitution. Based on their interpretation of the constitution. This group falls in line with Libertarian thoughts that the Federal Government is an evil empire. A thought that received the support of Saint Ronnie. “Government is not the solution to our problems, government is our problem.”

In the small community of Oakley, Michigan the local police chief came up with a novel method of funding his force. He sold police reserve status to people for various amounts of money. This reserve police status gave the holders the right to carry concealed in areas otherwise off limits. Churches, schools and any other restricted location.

This is still being investigated but the thought of various people with various backgrounds entering churches and schools with concealed weapons brings fear to me.

The SPLC has identified 939 active hate groups in America in 2013. My home state, Michigan has 18 such groups and one of the group’s leaders has been elected to our state congress. On the Republican ticket, if that makes a difference.

Here is a link to the listing of groups if you want to look up one in your neighborhood. ;)

So in conclusion let me say. Yes we do have things to fear in America and the fears we should be focusing on are the threats from within. The mid-east should be left to settle their problems, we must work on the cancer within our boundaries.

A couple of interesting side notes here.

The identities of the reserve police of Oakley, Mi. are currently not being released. They claim fear of ISIS attacks is the reason for their desired secrecy????

In talking to a lady last week regarding the growth of hate groups in America she replied. “Democrats started the KKK.”?????

Ruffling the feathers of my fellow Democrats again


First case came when I posted a satirical blog declaring Obama was to serve a third term. This was shared on the Bill Mahar fan page on Facebook and resulted in angry responses from many. I had to go back and explain it was intended to be satire to calm the stormy waters.
Next came a post on a group I frequent, mostly just as a lurker, Democratic underground. Link below to my post.
Basically I said Obama won because he is black and if the Democrats want to hold the white house they have to run Hillary because she will win being a female. This brought out the anger and name calling. I was called a racist and a Rush Limbaugh wannabe, among other things.
My intention was to point out the fact that the Democratic party has lost the support of the masses in this country, they have no message that resonates with the general public enough to motivate them to get off their asses and vote. This disenchantment comes from many sources including main stream media and their biased reporting.
The third case came about when I posted on a page I have managerial control of, a question regarding running a primary candidate against Michigan senator Debbie Stabenow. This posting brought on a request to refrain from posting as the site itself. Asking me to post as an individual poster. I agreed with this request and should have done so. My intention here was to hold our elected officials feet to the fire, demand actions supporting ALL the people they represent not just the lobbyists that buy them.
Link to my Obama’s third term post here…

Link to my post in Democraticunderground.

Cannot find the page where I asked about running a candidate versus Debbie Stabenow, it may have been taken down, but it was for real and did get two negative and one positive response.

Longform: Jeb ‘Put Me Through Hell’

Originally posted on Deconstructing Myths:

CLEARWATER, Fla.—Sitting recently on his brick back patio here, Michael Schiavo called Jeb Bush a vindictive, untrustworthy coward.

For years, the self-described “average Joe” felt harassed, targeted and tormented by the most important person in the state.

“It was a living hell,” he said, “and I blame him.”

Michael Schiavo was the husband of Terri Schiavo, the brain-dead woman from the Tampa Bay area who ended up at the center of one of the most contentious, drawn-out conflicts in the history of America’s culture wars…

Scott Walker’s plan to take down ISIS

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has divulged his plan to take down ISIS. Using a method of divide and conquer he will pass a law giving ISIS members the right to not pay dues. This effort has proven successful in undermining unions and Walker is convinced it will work with the20,000 members of ISIS.
Walker also has a backup plan provided to him by the Koch brothers. This would include requiring picture IDs for any and all members wishing to behead any opponent. While this move is questionable, it does have hidden benefits.
Namely, photographers would reap massive profits from creating the ids. And if we have their pictures we can more easily identify them as bad guys.

Still cold in this part of the world, keep warm my friends, keep warm.

What do stories like this do to benefit mankind?

Book with “Dieu, la Loi, et le Roi” (“God, the law and the king”) on one page and the golden rule on the other, by Bernard d’Agesci.

These links and stories bring a sadness to my heart.
A link from a right wing friend had this…

In this case the author is bemoaning the death of a white teen at the hands of a black teen. Not actually the death but rather the fact that media did not go bonkers over the event. Insinuating, I suppose, that media looks askance at black on white crime while over playing white on black crime.
As you all should know by now, I am against any killing, even innocent critters in the fields.
But, the conservativetribune piece above appears to be not against the killing but more interested in pouring fuel on race relations in America. This type of action does absolutely nothing to advance or improve race relations and should be condemned.
And another site spoke of the recent death of Kayla Mueller in this way.
“No tears for the newly-departed Kayla Mueller, the ISIS hostage whose parents confirmed today that she is dead,” conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel wrote on TuesdayX, under the headline,
“Kayla Mueller: Dead ISIS Hostage Was Jew-Hating, Anti-Israel Bitch.”
More provoking of racial and ethnic hatred for sure.

Just today I received another meme. This one showing what appears to be a mid-eastern mother strapping a suicide vest on her young son. This came from a “minister” who apparently skipped school the day they were teaching Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”
Do these people have no conscience? Or are they just too ignorant to know what they are doing?
Ignorance, in my opinion is not at fault here, rather a designed plan to foster anger and hatred among the races of the world. If we are fighting amongst ourselves we develop a blind eye to the real evils of the world. The oligarchs controlling us and our governments.
We must all join together to wrest control from these greedy thugs. Do not let them divide us!
