Sh*t Just Got Real In Syria!

So, I won’t lie, son. I have very conflicted emotions about last night’s Tomahawk missile attack on Syria. Now, on one hand, Bashar al-Assad needs to get the fuck outta Dodge. He’s been terrorizing his own people for far too long and it’s created a refugee crisis in both Europe and America. In addition, this same refugee crisis has had a profound impact on both our presidential election and Brexit. On the other hand, Donald Trump and his administration have been completely hypocritical in how they’ve handled this situation. With that being said, by attacking Syria, Trump has shown that he cares more about the gesture than the actual people.

Now, to be clear, I’m probably going to be reiterating a lot of shit I said in yesterday’s post. Look, I find it preposterous that Trump can block Syrian refugees in two different travel bans, warn Barack Obama against attacking Syria and then turn around and call for action. All I want to know is, where was all of this vitriol when Assad was killing his people before?

On the real, where was all of this fire when a little boy lost his entire family in Aleppo? Why did it take a chemical attack for our government to take these people’s pain seriously? Look, I’m sorry, man, but I’m not rolling with the idea that this administration suddenly gives a fuck. In the span of one week, Rex Tillerson went from saying that Assad would most likely stay in power to claiming that a coalition is now in place to remove him. Wow, the flip flop is fucking crazy, son.

Moving on, now that we’ve taken this action, how will Russia proceed? Listen, I haven’t forgotten about the congressional investigation, but this type of military strike could garner a response. Hell, Vladimir Putin has already condemned the move and the Kremlin proclaimed that the risk of collision between the two nations has “significantly increased.” Man, what the fuck does that mean? Are we really about to get into some shit with Russia too? Bruh, this could be the making of some real World War III shit. Are we really ready to go down this path? Shit, everybody seems to have nukes now, man. Ultimately, this entire situation could be catastrophic, son.

In the end, I don’t know what to make of all of this, fam. Assad needs to be removed, but the next step is so unknown. All in all, everyone needs to brace themselves. Some wild shit may be on the horizon, son. LC out.

Gary Johnson Is A Joke… Not The Funny Kind

Ok, I’ll be the first to admit, I haven’t given much thought to any of the presidential candidates not named Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. This is mainly because I don’t see how an outside force can overcome the current Democrat/Republican two-party system. Granted, I do understand the rationale that if enough people voted for an outsider, they could shake up the program. However; I’ve yet to see a candidate that could galvanize me enough to go against the grain. With that being said, Gary Johnson is doing a TERRIBLE job of convincing me otherwise. Within one month, he’s said two of the stupidest things I’ve heard on the campaign trail. So, it’s my job to make fun of him. Let’s do this!

Now, for those who are unaware, Johnson is the presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party. In addition, he’s the former Governor of New Mexico. Despite being a third wheel to the two-party system, Johnson has actually been doing well in the polls. However; I’m positive that’s about to change once people get a wind of the fuckity-fuck shit he’s been saying.

First, there’s Aleppo. During the second week of September, during an interview with MSNBC, Johnson was asked about the civil war in Syria. More specifically, he was asked about what he would do regarding the conflict that’s currently tearing apart the city of Aleppo. Now, instead of providing a solution, Johnson actually mouthed the words “what is Aleppo?” Bruh, seriously? Seriously?! This man is running to be president of the United States and he’s unaware of a war that’s been waging in the Middle East for at least the last five years? Man, shit like that should automatically disqualify any candidate. Then again, Donald Trump is in this race, so what the hell do I know?

Next, just yesterday, Johnson made another baffling faux pas. Back on MSNBC, host Chris Matthews asked Johnson to name his favorite foreign leader. After stalling for a period of time, Matthews asked him to just mention anyone. Once again, instead of at least acting like he knew what he was talking about, Johnson said “I guess I’m having an Aleppo moment.” Is this dude fucking serious? Not only did he whiff on a question he should’ve been able to answer, he went and referenced ANOTHER whiff that made him look stupid before. Honestly, is anyone out there actually voting for this guy? If so, can I buy some weed from whoever is supplying y’all? It must be some good ass weed, son.

In the end, I don’t think there’s anything else to say. Gary Johnson is an idiot. Plain and simple, son. Once again, this is just further proof that this election is the worst in American history. I swear, we’re fucked as a people, man. Fucking fucked! Good day.
