Obama vs. ISIS. My Money's On...

Real patriots wear flag jackets!

Ices-Ices, Baby!

Sometimes you just can't win. Remember Animal Farm? Remember the donkey who saw through the pigs' ruinous desires but stood idly by in resignation? How frustrating! If one can help, one should. It's not true that the only thing evil needs to succeed is for good men to do nothing. If you're doing nothing, you ain't good in the first place. One must always speak one's mind. You may say that doesn't amount to much but it was enough to get Jesus murdered by the masses.

Of course, just because you're doing something in the name of righteousness doesn't necessarily make you a good actor. Saddam Hussein was a bad actor, certainly, and removing him from power cannot be argued with. That it was done in the pursuit of justice most certainly can be! Knocking off the evil king just so you can be the evil king won't get you into heaven. And anyone dumb enough to believe your motivations are pure will be dragged into the very same hell. Moses warned of this:

When such a person hears the words of this oath and they invoke a blessing
 on themselves, thinking, "I will be safe, even though I persist
 in going my own way," they will bring disaster
 on the watered land as well as the dry.

There's actually a place in this country
 who believe this guy is Jesus

And so it is we insist on going our own way, non-believers taking believers down the toilet with them. That's a hella plan! When one steps into the voting booth it's not the candidate on whom you're voting, but yourself - and everyone votes themselves to be Jesus. My, my, just look at all those Jesus's we put in power! Since we can't admit we vote evil into power without admitting the same of ourselves our leaders are allowed to run wild, committing the most horrible acts in our name. Go figure.

Our daddy President sometimes can't win, either. There those who would condemn him were he to feed a starving child and those who'd support him were he to bomb that same child to bits. There are those who say, "When my guy drops bombs they are good. When the other guy drops bombs they are evil." At some point it's all about trust. Asking whether or not that trust is deserved is another matter! Well, do you trust me, punk?

"Make my day, ISIS punk!"

This leaves us with a potential situation where a President could be doing the right thing and be wholly vilified because he is not trusted - and vice versa. To be a true friend is to say what's not always pleasant to hear. Have we elected those who are willing to give us the hard truths? Let the arguments commence! Our actual motivations will come to light as either savior or saboteur and all the heated words of the past will be as forgotten as yesterday's wind. "By their fruits ye shall know them." "We reap what we sow." No matter how many arguments are won denying those two facts our fate will remain the same.

"I got this by degrading and destroying."

So are we acting out of love (as is our only choice, come what may)? I do believe a President acting out of faith in love will come to win over and silence even the most ardent critics as the wisdom of that choice of life becomes apparent. I also believe evil deeds can be assumed popular before they are revealed for the doom they wreak. And sometimes you've been such a dunderhead having brought ruin to both the watered land as well as the dry leaving no place left to go, you just have to swallow that bitter pill like the fucking moron you are - and be grateful for the chance to do so.
