United Police States of the WORLD

It looks like the Military Industrial Complex is flexing it's muscle and influence again. And how "ironic" if you can call it that, that this plan was outlined to the public on September 11th? For those of you who did not catch Obama's speech see the article below: 

Unsure what to think?

Well as my friend perfectly said, "This oughta work about as well as training ISIS to fight Assad. And Saddam to fight Iran. And Al Qaeda to fight the USSR. And Israel to fight the Arabs. And the Arabs to fight the Ottomans. And..."

I have had countless discussion about this as of late and it just takes a little common sense to connect the dots of what's going on in the world, and the agenda that is being laid out behind the scenes. This is a great article and really a must read for people to read and understand because I believe the majority of Americans do not even know who ISIS or ISIL is or where they came from. Yes, it's disturbing but true. Just like Al Qaeda was trained and supported as well.

Without even going into the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the issues there (which I still have yet to post about but have not because I wanted to wait a bit longer to see how it played out) this is just history repeating itself over and over and over again. I hoped Obama would be different but he was just another puppet in the game.

Europe is far from perfect but I much prefer to reside here than the United Police States no matter what I have to do. And the concept seems to be catching on with at least a very small minority of people. But it's all about perspective and your inner circles. Almost every expat I speak to that has been here long enough seems to agree on one thing: the US is no longer a force for good in the world. In fact I question whether it ever was. All I know is it certainly appears to be headed on a path of destruction that seems irreversible and I'm not going down with this ship. I didn't sign up for this.

Ferguson a Microcosm of What's to Come

What is going on in Ferguson should not upset people because of race. Racism has existed since the dawn of man and it shall continue until its sun has set. What people should be aware, and wary, of is how police militarization in the U.S. has quietly grown over the years into a very scary reality as I have written from the very beginning of this blog. That is the very real issue and I hope that people are really starting to wake up to this.

Growing Militarisation of American Law Enforcement

The police do a difficult and dangerous job, and it is completely understandable that they do not wish to be outgunned by bad guys. A big show of force can sometimes deter criminals from starting a fight. And police departments are right to spend generously on defensive equipment. Nonetheless, the growing militarisation of American law enforcement is alarming

Land of the Oppressed, Home of the Militarized Unchecked Police State.

Well folks the very first incident which caused me to start this blog in the first place where Orange County police beat a homeless, schizophrenic man death seems to not have been an isolated incident.

I cannot believe that more people do not realize what's going on.

Sometimes I Can't Help but Wonder WTF is Wrong with America?

I'm sitting at my desk at work and anxiously awaiting the Czech-USA Quarter-final olympic hockey showdown to start and it occured to me. There's really no question in my mind that I'd love to see the Czech Republic win. I have been living here for almost six years now and I've always been a fan of the underdog. This is the perfect David vs. Goliath example.

But below I think explains in a very simple and simplistic way why I am proud to call Europe my new home. The US has lost its way. It doesn't matter one bit if they win or lose this game.

This just says it all.

The US Congress is a Disgrace

I'm only 34 years old but this is truly the most dysfunctional and extreme Congress that I have ever seen. The Congress is not only refusing to get with the program regarding serious issues that require worldwide support and action (like the plethora of Environmental issues plaguing our planet) but they are actually taking steps backwards and literally acting like children. I am ashamed to say that I am even from the US these days (even more than usual). The three sentences below perfectly sums up what the problem is in my opinion.
Norman Ornstein and Thomas Man, two congressional scholars, have said the following:
The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise, unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science, and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.
When one party moves this far from the mainstream, it makes it nearly impossible for the political system to deal constructively with the country’s challenges.
***Not to say that the Democrats seem to be much better these days but what else is Obama supposed to do? I'm just glad I live in Europe now.
