Alright, there has been way too many news stories the past few weeks about the government fucking shit up for me not talk about it. Let me preface this article by saying: I’m not taking any political sides on this one, just common sense and maybe, just maybe, a little humor. We shall see.
First up, and the oldest story, the Arizona immigration bill. Now I’m not going to be the person to tell you what’s right and what’s wrong with this bill, or if it’s legal or illegal. No, I’m going to rant about how absolutely hypocritical it is for the federal government to come to the party days late and try to lay down some sort of guilt trip to the state of Arizona. The reason this pisses me off so damn much is simple: people all over this country have been crying, no, SCREAMING for immigration reform, and both the Bush and now Obama administration have done ZERO in regards to stopping people from crossing our borders.
Like I stated before, I’m not going to tell you what’s right or wrong, but I will say this- at least someone is doing something about this problem. Yeah, maybe Arizona could be going a little overboard or maybe not, but the simple fact is they are fed-up with people crossing the border to kill, rape, and steal from this country. Of course people are going to bitch about what’s going on; it’s what people do. Now you get everyone in the Obama administration like Hilary Clinton and Robert Gibbs, bitching about what’s going on and how it’s “not fair”, and that we need “real reform”.
Are you shitting me right now? Yes you idiots, no shit we need real reform, so do it then assholes! You’re the damn federal government, so go make some real changes instead of going on TV to bitch about someone else’s. It’s like the old switch-a-fuckin-roo, watch this hand over here, while I punch you in the face and rape your wife with this other hand.
The good old BP oil spill in the gulf coast. Let me start by saying bravo to BP for playing this one close to the vest. Right after this started going down you get a statement saying, “no worries everyone, it’s just 1,000 barrels of oil per day, we’ve got this covered”. Excuse me? Wait, so the company that theoretically caused this disaster is telling us they will take care of it? Yeah, that sounds awesome let’s leave the autistic 18 year old, in charge of the retarded 20 year old while we go to the movies.
Are you kidding me!? But no, everyone in the White House was A-OK with it. Then BP announces that it may be closer to 2,500 barrels of oil per day, and that the oil slick is heading towards the coast of Louisiana. Again the Obama administration does nothing, congrats on another amazing decision! Now come to find out that it’s more like 5,000 barrels of oil per day, and that the oil will probably continue to spill out into the ocean for another 40-60 days.
YIPPEE!!!!!! So now we have everyone along the gulf coast suffering because the White House couldn’t decide if they needed to shit, or get off the pot. Look I understand that the powers that be can’t be bothered with such insignificant details like our economy being damaged every day we don’t attempt to stop this.
Now comes the story that the local fishermen who depend on the waters for work and to feed their families are hatching a plan that can only be described as Willey Coyote-esc. They are going to get all their pontoon boats and line them up along the coast to “block” the oil sludge from hitting the main land. Now I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about environmental disasters, but this sounds like the plan a child would think up. The fact is though that this is ALL the fishermen have, because the government didn’t step in to help out when this actually started!
Last and certainly not least is the attempted bombing in Times Square. Now I’m not going to be that guy who yells and screams because the government didn’t do anything about a guy who came here from Pakistan in the 90′s to go to school. However, I will yell about the fact that this guy was on the terror watch list and almost made it out of the country! Are you kidding me? If this guy would have made it back to Pakistan we would have never found this douche bag. I’ll be honest I’m surprised the FBI was able to track down this piece of shit before it was too late, but still!
Let’s look at this for a second, the guy became a nationalized citizen in 2009, at that point he was already on the terror watch list because of his close ties with Pakistan. He had just come back from a 5 month stay in Pakistan where his wife currently lives. Odd you ask? Yes, it is, the reason his wife is still over seas is because she didn’t believe in his radical extremist views. Hmmm… Strike two. Now comes the whammy that I just read today. Let me pose this as a question first, if a nationalized US citizen from Pakistan with extremist views is placed on the Terror Watch list, is he able to buy a gun?
The answer is surprisingly YES! I must be living in a fantasy fucking universe! Under what smart- ass politician was it thought to be a good idea for this? I’m all for gun right’s for U.S. citizens, but are you kidding me right now? Everything about this guy was fishy and yet he was allowed to stay in this country, and then buy a gun! Thank God this moron wasn’t smart enough to use the gun; instead he tried to blow up thousands of civilians in the middle of Times Square with a kid’s alarm clock and some roman candles.
In closing I’m tired of the government, and its bullshit. Get your shit together and fix the problems we have, Fix the problems that happen, and Fix the problems that could happen.
