I’m no expert, but I am an American and it’s nice to exercise my right to free speech. Everything I post here is always up for discussion. Change is mandatory, growth is optional.

If cameras can’t hold police accountable in Eric Garner’s death, what can?

This situation is terrible. This man was frustrated, he had just split up a fight his adrenaline was going. He didn’t do anything wrong. I’m a pretty outspoken person and not afraid to tell someone my opinion, this man did as most others would have done in the same situation. The difference for him… He was big and he was black. That is not a crime. That is no reason for four officers to try and bring this guy down to the ground. The video is so sad to watch, but I recommend to all that they click the source below and watch the video. This is what is really going on all over america.

First let me say… I dont believe that cops are waking up in the morning and going out looking for people to kill. That’s not what is going on. Situations that arise are not being handled correctly. The Police are here to PROTECT. Who were they protecting in this video? It is just wrong and these guys need to be punished. A man lost his life.

It’s a tragedy that in all of the growth and advancement in our society that we still judge people by the color of their skin. For crying out loud, we have a black president!

If you read The Verge article below I don’t agree with everything he says. I think it’s border line inciteful. There are many issues in America and this one is distracting America from even bigger problems. No one in America is technically from here except for the Native Americans. We all just need to be thankful for all the things were fortunate enough to have.

My heart goes out to Mr Garner’s family. I hope that his death is somehow leads to positive change.

Lil Wayne Walks On American Flag

Lil Wayne Walks Over American Flag In Music Video

Basically people are calling for everyone to boycott Lil Wayne, because while shooting a video he walks over the american flag. If all you watch is a little clip of him walking on the american flag then yes I understand that being disrespectful. The flag was a prop in the video. In the video it drops revealing the people from his hometown behind it. Then it’s not in the scene. It wasn’t like he planned out stomping on the flag. He just continued filming. Watch the video. I understand its disrespectful, I was raised that the flag should never even touch the ground. But it’s in a film. Since when does the morals within a movie cross into reality? No one raises their nose when a married man has to make out and pretend to have sex with an actress. If this was premeditated then yes I would say he’s unamerican and people should not purchase his music. That’s not the case here so I will go on listening to his stuff. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I enjoy you sharing your.

Lil Wayne- God Bless Amerika

People Leave Obama’s Speech. Real Talk

People Leave Obama’s Speech. Real Talk

Lmao… This President… This fucking president. Shaking my head so damn hard at Obama and hid staff trying to spin this event in their favor.

It’s clear that the public in general isn’t happy with President Obama. Tell me why if people weren’t able to get a seat left the event leaving empty chairs behind? I thought it was too packed to get a seat? Also if I was a fan of the President I wouldn’t be leaving, I’d be taking any chance I could to watch him. How cool is that to be that cost top the President and heart him speak in person.

Just stop it. Pepper left because they, like myself, could careless what the President had to say. It’s not like he’s going to follow through with anything.

Why Are We Even Celebrating Labor Day?

image

Back when I was in school, labor day was my favorite holiday! School had just started and you had been ready for summer to end and by the week’s end you want summer back so they give you a three day weekend! Loved it. In my family we usually cooked out and enjoyed time with the family. But that was in California where every one of my family members that had a job worked for some tech giant. They enjoyed weekends off and multiple government holidays, making three day weekends plentiful.

Flash forward to the present and I no longer live in Cali. I take up residence in North Carolina and unlike my family I don’t work for a tech company. I am in retail. So while they enjoy this weekend relaxing, drinking a cold beer, chowing down on some ribs….. I will be working extended hours.

While Labor Day started out to recognize those in the labor force it has gone through a transition. Now it signifies the end of summer, that last hoorah, last trip to the beach or lake. For me though, it’s a shopping holiday. I work at an outlet. So today my store will be packed all day like a mad house.

I can’t say that I don’t really enjoy it though. I like the chaos. I love it when my store is packed with people. It makes the day go by faster and instead of having to find stuff to do I get to sell. Which of course is way I’m actually good at.

Labor Day used to be a family day for me, but like most other government holidays it is now a sales holiday. It’s the product of capitalism. So today, enjoy the time you have with your friends and family. Drink one for me.

Hillary Clinton On Gun Control: We Can’t Let ‘A Minority Of People’ Terrorize The Majority

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/5505080?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000595

It’s a total coincidence that I wrote about this topic earlier today. I just saw this article a few minutes ago. I don’t know what Clinton view on gun control totally entails, but I agree that the system is broken. And again I reiterate the point I was trying to make earlier…. Communication is key.

What I mean by communication is that the purchase of weapons needs to be on the federal level. Not state. The reason is that the states are failing to communicate and also hold different laws from one place to the other. I agree on a standard. What’s the point in owning a weapon if during your drive to work you cross a state border and are now violating a law by carrying a hand gun?

Plain and simple communication. Something the government just sucks at.

It’s Not Gun Control We Need…

image

This morning on my way to work an unmarked police car passed me. I was already doing 10 mph over the speed limit. He was doing at least 10 mph more than I. It got me thinking though about the lack of respect for the law that people in power have. Which then leads me to think about gun regulation and how the government continues trying to take our weapons from us.

This always seems like a hot topic to debate, but I don’t think there is anything we should be debating. You simply cannot allow the government to take our guns. Everyone has learned in school about what happens when governments disarm it’s citizens. If you need a refresher here’s a short list:

1911 – Turkey disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.

1929 – Russia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.

1935 – China disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.

1938 – Germany disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 16 million Jews.

1956 – Cambodia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million Educated people.

1964 – Guatemala disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.

1970 – Uganda disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1971 – 1979 they murdered 300,000 Christians.

I’m not saying that this is what would happen here in America. It does however guarantee one thing, you are now more vulnerable. Criminals will always have weapons. It’s the law abiding citizens like you and I that will have our families lives put at risk. Some of my friends think we need stricter gun laws and say that gun owners need to compromise more. I can some what agree with that statement. I agree that there needs to be a discussion about the process people go through to own a gun. Compromise?

1934- National Firearms Act
1968- The Gun Control Act
1986- Firearms Owners Protection Act
1993- Brady Handgun Violence Act
1994- “Assault Weapons” Ban
1995- Gun Free School Zone

I think gun owners have done a lot of compromising over the years. Take away the guns what’s next? Knives? Guns are not the problem and gun control isn’t the solution. How  about we just start with better communication.

Voter Fraud Is Serious

image

This seems to be a hot topic to debate. The need to have identification in order to vote. I personally don’t understand why we should be debating this topic whatsoever. Of course not everyone is going to see things the way I do.

I understand that a huge portion of Democratic voters are minorities. So this makes sense that Democrats would be against voters being required to present identification. Seems to me that Republicans are making the situation worse. They know that enforcing such a strict rule would hurt their opponents.

This to me is like brother and sister fighting. We get it y’all don’t like each other. You all forget you’re fighting on the same team. (Sorry that’s a little off topic.) Here’s what I have to say about the whole subject. Just my opinion and of course I’m no expert.
image

I am in favor of being required to show some form of valid ID. In every job I have ever had it has been a requirement that I have a state id or college id and my social security number. Yep, because I work hard and pay taxes. These elections that are taking place are fake. Totally fake. The results are skewed. Apparently dead people can still vote. As well as some people can vote twice. People who aren’t even citizens also get to vote…. WHAT THE FUCK? We might as well make a stop in China and let them cast a ballot as well. This is outrageous in this day and age that crap like this is even allowed to go on. But let me forget to pay some of my taxes by honest mistake and see if they aren’t knocking on my door trying to collect.

I haven’t heard a lot of people mention identity theft. When we talk about identity theft people take that seriously. Of course they do, because their money is at stake. That is exactly what is going on right now. People are showing up to vote and are being told that they already voted. How is this not a problem?

I am a citizen of the United States of America. So were my parents, my parent’s parents and one of my great uncles was a President of our great country. I believe I have every right to vote for who I think should help lead our country. Now if someone abandons their country to come here, I don’t think they should be allowed to vote until they’ve gone through the proper steps to obtain citizenship. I have friends who are illegal, hard working and tax paying. I respect them emensley for coming here to provide a better life for their family. Until they become citizens I still believe they shouldn’t be able to vote.

The Democrats definitely don’t like this. I’m sorry I’m not sorry that you want to win an election off of non american votes. The problem isn’t just with the Dems, voter fraud is a serious issue. There are people out there voting multiple times, people who are deceased yet somehow voting. Those people could be voting Republican. Who knows? Either way it’s wrong. So I believe in order to have the fairest election that there should be a standard across the board for voter identification. Not neccesarily state ID, just something to identify that you are well you say you are and to stop you from voting again. Requiring an ID to vote don’t fix the problem solely. The voting system is broken and had been for a long time. Its time to make some changes.

I don’t have the solution to this problem, but why aren’t balids tied to our social security number? Those could be entered into a system saying you voted. Problem solved. OK that’s more difficult to do then it sounds. Either way something has to be done.
