I'll Bite My Tongue No More

I tried, I really tried not to comment on this. I stopped myself from writing smart ass remarks on the walls of Facebook friends who all but announced IN ALL CAPS that they are borderline racist and/or full blown simpletons. If I thought for a second that some of them came to their conclusions after even a fraction of a minute of self exploration rather than just parroting what their friends were saying, I wouldn't take issue. That's the God's honest truth.

The fact is Barack Obama was in office when Osama Bin Laden was killed by US soldiers. Why is everyone blowing a wad about him, the President of the US, coming on air and announcing the news? So he should take the blame for gas prices but how dare he take some credit for Bin Laden? Do you imagine it all went down without his having any prior knowledge? That someone just woke him up, told him the news and handed him a speech? Whether or not you support him, he's the PRESIDENT, he's who gets to talk when big shit goes down. Look at it this way, George W Bush just happened to be in office on September 11, 2001. Who did you expect to see on TV that evening?  Personally, I expected to see the PRESIDENT.

I can't even begin to discuss the conspiracy theories alleging that Bin Laden is alive, that it was all a hoax to distract us from taking it in the ass at the pump, because my head might explode. Also, I don't like to think that the country I love is inhabited by barely evolved neanderthals. Is it a bit odd that his body was disposed of so quickly, that there are no photos? Yeah, it's odd. Doesn't mean it's not true. If we took the energy and brain power some of us use to "prove" Obama is running a scam and put it to, I don't know, fight homelessness or cure a disease, our country might be in a better way today.

Save your emails, I'll go ahead and preemptively label this post Got Me Hate Mail.

Well, spoken.

Even if pictures were shown only 50% of those screaming for them would be satisfied. The others would claim it was photo shopped.

Could. Not. Agree. MORE.

I'm still rolling my eyes at the profound stupidity of the birthers, but that's a whole 'nother can of worms.

I swear we must have of the same people on our friend's list on FB. I'm about ready to delete them all.

AaaaaMEN!

Michelle said...

Totally agree.

I can't believe that people are claiming this is a hoax and that OBL is still alive. He'd be shouting it from the rooftops that the US was lying if he really wan't dead. I may not agree with everything that our president does, but I do respect him as our leader and applaud him for finally getting the job done (that should have been done 9 1/2 years ago, but I digress...).

Oh, haven't you guys heard he's been dead for 10 years already? That's what's going around in the circles of my fb famdamily.

Anyway. Well said.

Quite frankly I wouldn't call this "big shit". What most people don't seem to understand is that Osama was just a guy and the fact that he is dead means close to nothing. That being said, Obama can announce it all he wants. People need to not give a shit.

Bravo.

My thoughts exactly!

Standing ovation!!! He is my President. I don't agree with all he says or does but he is my President and I support and respect the office he holds.

Thank you. Well said. What if we all just focus on something we all have in common, for a change. Like concentrating on our own lives and the lives of people we know and see every day. Helping each other. Helping whoever is in front of you to help and turn off the fucking television. We'd all be so much better off without all that news, don't you think? Anyway, you're right and I'm proud of you.

True. No matter what side you fall on there are those who will reach for something criticize. They waste time stirring the pot with ridiculous crap when they haven't taken the time to educate themselves enough to back up their stance on legitimate issues.

Lorie Shewbridge said...

Well said! Bravo!

MostlyFlumxd said...

Agreed, had to shut many people don't with their ridiculous rants. Douchwads! Thanks for speaking up!
