The Price of Freedom

“The quintessential flaw with freedom is that it capriciously facilitates both good and evil.”

Police wage war with criminal elements in Kingston, Jamaica

Drugs Lords are a dime a dozen. The bad boy from Jamaica who took the law into his own hands to form his own government under the auspices of the Jamaican government knew this all too well. However, before anyone can condemn Christopher Coke, one must understand that he is not very different from any other human being. His only crime is that he abused his freedom.

Why is being Biracial an issue?

September 13, 2009 11 comments

“People seem to instinctively value group membership more than group purpose.”

Xenocrates

This is a trailer for a documentary called “I’m biracial… not black, damnit!“. It chronicles an ongoing and topical issue among Americans. Is a person who is mixed to identify with blacks or whites? Personally I think the whole issue is moot. Scientifically, the question is as irrelevant as the whole topic of race.

Why People Believe in Garbage

Rep. John McCain

Rep. John McCain

John McCain is the next in the Republican party’s new line of epic 21st century FUBARs – as if George Bush wasn’t enough. The Republican party was once the pride and joy of America, producing great presidents like Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. But lately, they’ve not been doing so well. McCain started out with a REALLY great campaign that showed promise, depth and direction, beating out the Mormon (Romney) and the comedian (Huckabee) – who happened to be my pick for the Republicans. I almost rooted for McCain while Hillary Clinton was busy destroying the Democratic party. Then he started to make a series of really bad decisions that basically ruined his campaign. First came the debates – which while not bad, he isn’t regarded as winning due to his emotive propensities. Then came the dull speeches, the flip flops, the lies and his worst mistake of all, Sarah Palin. That’s when everything went to hell. She flubbed on several interviews, displayed jaw dropping ignorance, brought along the Troopergate scandal, undermined her own running mate, called the prophet a socialist, terrorist groupie, playing up to the ignorance of the Republitards. That left McCain to do damage control as his own racist, hick town groupies chanted “kill him”, “Terrorist” and “I don’t trust [that] Arab”. I mean, SERIOUSLY? How does ONE man mess up SO bad in SUCH a short space of time? None of that matters now. More importantly, why are so many people still supporting the Republican party given all this chaos? I examined the blind loyalty of educated Republicans and then looked back at all the garbage that people believe in and that’s when I discovered a correlation that explains why smart people can believe in such utter rubbish:

The Bitch vs The Prophet

Governor Sarah Palin

verybody loves a fiesty bitch – especially if it wears lipstick. Sarah Palin is quite possibly the cheapest in a long line of Republican tricks to win an election. John McCain is a clever bastard. He realised that the crowd was swooning for the younger, blacker, hipper candidate. Since Barack Obama forsook his bitch option (Senator Hillary Clinton) for a smartass (Joe Biden) and for very good reasons, he thought; ‘what better way to even the odds (or at least, attempt to do so) by selecting a hot, young, bona fide bitch for VP’. It’s a brilliant ploy that reeks of gimmick and sexploitation. Ever since this über-bitch took the stage, the media has suddenly stopped cutting John McCain’s speeches short for Obama’s. Now they’re cutting them short for hers. Even though she has proven that she is just as clueless as the president her ticket is hoping to replace, I suspect that some elements of the American idiocracy will swoon for her just the same – because that’s what idiocracies do. The only time Sarah Palin seems remotely in touch with anything that comes out of her mouth is when she’s not repeating memorised speaking notes as she plays the role of John McCain’s fiesty biting poodle. Good thing her bark is worse than her bite as was evident when Katie Couric showed her who’s the baddest bitch around – and Katie didn’t even have to get fiesty. Rawr. This proves more than anything else that Palin’s more MILF than VP material. I ain’t even gonna lie. I’d hit it.

Idiocracy

“To become king in the land of the blind, the one eyed man must first pretend to be blind.

Xenocrates

eorge W. Bush is a genius. Yes, I said it. The 43rd President of the United States is an unparalleled savant. Never before in the history of the world has one man duped the greatest modern empire of all time into the greatest modern hoax of all time by manipulating the greatest man made act of terrorism of all time to sideswipe the greatest united committee of all time to foster the worst orchestrated war of all time using the greatest lie of all time for the most underhanded and nefarious act of self profiteering of all time while plummeting the greatest empire of all time into the worst economic slump of all time then duping the “greatest” nation of all time into bringing him back for round two and three. And to top it all off, he did it all while appearing to be the dumbest, most inarticulate, most average, most unsophisticated, most ineloquent, least charismatic and worst favoured US president of all time. This guy made Nero look like a chump. Now if that isn’t the work of pure genius, I don’t know what is. But that’s not the kicker. George Bush got away with what he did, because he recognised long before anyone else, that the American public constitutes of the largest, most powerful Idiocracy of all time.
