So El Chapo has been extradited to the United States. CURIOUS about something, why wasn’t there all the fear mongering from congress and FOX News on what a threat it would be if the was brought to the United States? Remember when President Obama tried to bring the prisoners from Guantánamo Bay to the United States and Republicans freaked out because SOMEHOW in an alternate universe it somehow posed a threat to the United States if we brought them here.
The weird thing about that is El Chapo is the head of a major drug cartel that is has great power and is a real threat here in the United States. They have real reach here in the United States. Terrorist DO NOT. Terrorist are not the big bogie man that the incoming president make them out to be. They, at least under President Obama which might now change, could not orchestrate a major attack on the United States which what would have been needed to break out any terrorist. However, the drug cartels do have a lot of power here in the United States. That is just a fact of American life. It was Mexican drug cartels wrote the book on beheading and other great atrocities. Mexican drug cartels have beheaded way more people than ISIS could ever dream of. But we don’t fear them, the real bogie man that live in America. NO we fear a joke of an organization that is dying. Yes, ISIS is a joke. The best they can do is a few small attacks in Europe. And that is the best they can do.
But the drug cartels, they can get anyone. They have that kind of power. But you did not see conservatives loose their minds over El Chapo. No no no. They don’t fear real threats, just paper tigers.
So with everything that is going on in the world and here in America, I think it is time that I start writing on here in Notes from Outpost 187. This is a blog about politics, foreign policy and social issue blog, and there is much to write about. For those who know me know I have opinions and thoughts on a wide range of topics. I try my best to be thoughtful and take a Socratic approach to things. I also have a great interest in our world, and I want to share them with you all. I am merely trying to add to the discussion and contribute to our democracy.
I also would love to hear your opinions and thoughts. Please try to thoughtful and polite, but if you can’t be, I forgive you.
So here is what I have learned from Fox News: As Sean Hannity so well put it, black people don’t sell drugs. Funny thing about that under Reagan the CIA brought literally tons of cocaine into the United State and distributed it throughout black communities. But in Reagan’s defense he was a white president serving a white America. So the destruction of black communities was not only acceptable but necessary.
Than Sean gave another bit of advice don’t run from the police. Because as we know, police are fair honest brokers, that represent the government out in our communities. Well versed in the Constitutions and carry around the Bill of Rights in their back pockets.
Now I also learned from Fox is that if you are white and owe a lot of money to the people of the United States of America it is not only perfectly fine to not pay what you owe, but it is perfectly alright to challenge our law enforcement agencies with guns. As a matter of fact it is encouraged. And best of all you will get support from some media outlets. Like Sean Hannity who will give you all the support you need.
It is true,I want Indiana and Arkansas to keep their Religious Freedom Restoration Act to in place. It allows anyone to discriminate anyone they chooses base off their religious beliefs. That mean LGBT, black, minorities and whomever they choose to discriminate. The reason I want it to stay in place is because of the backlash it is and will cause. We see business, conventions and other groups boycotting these states; which hits them hard economically . This will make other states to think twice if they are thinking about passing their own RFRA.
These bills also show what the Republican party is really about. They have become a religious party who, like ISIS, believes in strict social codes. The GOP and ISIS are vehemently against homosexuality and feel that it is an abomination to God. This is based off of their interpretation of their religious text. This opposition will drives people away from the GOP,because America has became a more tolerant nation. We are progressing in that way; which is nice to see.
I have no problem with these people, and here is why, we will get smart, hard worker people that will contribute to our nation and help boost the economy, which I am all for. We get a lot of smart immigrants who go to our colleges, get out, start businesses and contribute to the economy. Excellent.
Also I do not want to take a mother or father away from their kids. That puts pressure on our desperately sad social services. I do not want to send a kid who came here as a child, grew up here and is American anyone else. All that kid knows is our country and being an American . He is an American.
Also immigrants do jobs that Americans will not do. Plan and simple. That crop is not going to pick itself. And this was recently proven when a farm put out a call for workers to pick their crops and they got no one to pick it. And that is just a hard fact.
I don’t get the hatred that is generated over people trying to make a better life for themselves in the supposed Land of Opportunity. .
These people are trying to obtain the American dream which, if they do, America is better for it, and boosts our economy. Which is a great thing. Also the business community wants something done because of just that.
We need to get over ourselves.
I am very critical of President Obama. He is the President of the United States and I am a progressive, so as you can see, I would have a lot to be critical of. He has made decisions, policies, actions and inactions, that I have disagreed with; however, there is a difference between me and conservatives, I am critical of him for reasons based in reality, an area that conservatives rarely travel too. I am a progressive, not an old school, bleeding heart politically correct liberal, and I am also a realist. I also do not believe in hypocrisy. If you follow conservatives you will know that, since President Obama became President, they have lived in a world of hypocrisy. It is astounding how hypocritical the right has become, which I will write about in the future. And it is amusing to see how hypocritical my conservative friends are. Mind blowing. But, sadly, so are liberals. Which to me is enraging since we are supposed to be the adults room amongst the feces flinging children.
So in this blog you will see criticisms of POTUS when I disagree and praise when do I agree.
