World Issues

As I sit here on this mid-afternoon, warm day in July sipping on my coffee in the confines of my own apartment living area, it literally astounds me of the issues in America. On a much grander scale, world issues are much more complex and serious than some of these trivial problems we Americans encounter daily.

Kendall Jones– Who is she? But firstly, who cares who she is! The memes, tweets and Facebook posts I’ve seen about this girl literally blow my mind how wrapped up our society is over some Texan cheerleader going on wild hunting adventures. Her main goal is to probably get some media attention and a reality show (like everyone else). How clique and boring.

Hobby Lobby– This issue actually had to be address by congress. Sad. It kind of reminds me of the whole steroids in baseball thing that was tied up in congress for months on end (which, by the way, didn’t solve a f**king thing because players are still getting popped regularly for performance enhancing drugs. Not to mention it was a total waste of money). Businesses/corporations don’t seem to have any freedoms anymore. Target can’t tell its customers who carry guns around to not carry guns around and Hobby Lobby can’t tell it’s employees it will not provide birth control within the benefits unless they get some official ruling from the government. Hobby Lobby is a known religious business. People know this.

Furthermore, Hobby Lobby is a joke. It’s pretend religious values make me sick. They buy the majority of their product from a country (China) who has a strict one-child law which in turn forces families to have abortions (which China seems to be totally fine with) and they invest in companies that make the very conceptive they’re against! If you didn’t know any of this, you’re an idiot.

Benghazi– still hearing about this, although, mainly in meme fashion on Twitter and Facebook, it’s still tired and old. Blame former President Bush who released a “terrorist” (Abu Sufian Bin Qumu) responsible for Benghazi from GITMO years back- oh, and President Obama apparently drone-striked his ass. So he’s dead now.

Gays, Guns, and Sarah Palin- There are millions of non-religious people in this world, most of whom don’t care anything about what others believe in and vise versa. So the religious teachings of this “one man, one woman” thing doesn’t exactly apply to everyone. Get. Over. It.

Guns aren’t going away any time soon and for most of us that’s a blessing. For the other half who hate guns, well, this is America. Or ‘Merica, rather. President Obama is not trying to steal your guns away but if you walk around with an open carry side arm/rifle strapped to your back, expect some police attention and try not to act too much like a douchebag when the cop wants to check things out.

I wish Sarah Palin would go away. She’s a mental burden on our country and she’s making those who listen to her more dumb every day. If you’ve ever invested any time paying attention to her, please walk off a cliff now. You’ll be doing our society a giant favor by purging yourself from the world and not being able to spread her idiotic-ness.

 

 

‘Merica, right?
