Hooray for Helpless!!

McCarthy: Nearly 1,100 Guns Seized So Far This Year!

That's the headline that I read!

I was wondering what was McCarthy thinking about while posting this statistic?
Was he looking for browning points?                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                  (                                                                                                                                               (credit: ThinkStock
Was he hoping that we would forget about the lives that have been lost to gun violence?

Well, let me tell you what I don't see.

I don't see crime of any kind down in the city of Chicago.

I'm certain that the 1,100 guns that were seized, none were connected to any of the recent murders.

I'm not impresssed McCarthy or Mr. Mayor.

The last time McCarthy bragged about a situation, (no murders over the weekend)the homies went on a killing spree.

Right after patting himself on the back, we lost seven people starting that Monday.

We are now considered the murder capital of the U.S.A.

Wow!! Now that's bragging rights to some shit!! 

We couldn't stop being stupid for one day. 

The President came to Chicago to speak about gun control.

One of the young ladies standing behind him, was gunned down later on.

Through all this Rahm. Oh Rahm!! How disappointed I am.

The only time I hear from this nine finger fuck is when he's found a new way to get revenue out of the folks that voted for him.

Better yet I wish he would bully crime, the way he bullied the teacher's union!!!

Nope. That won't happen. Rahm like the suckass he put into this position, don't have a clue what to do!!

So guys, keep giving yourself all the praise you THINK you deserve!

After bragging about seizing guns, let's see how many guns will be used towards innocent victims this week!

Foot Soldiers

What I'm about to discuss is nothing new.

I don't think it's quite sunk in to folks to the masses.

Oh, who the fuck am I kidding?!!!

The people that are most affected, probably won't read this!

Politicians want to charge consumers a higher tax on athletic shoes.

That's right gym shoes, running shoe, Cole Hahn with the Nike bubble, hell, maybe even Skechers!!

The reason behind this higher tax?

To help the funding of  programs.

What are those programs you ask?

I'll call "Low Income" programs.

Food, shelter, jobs and child care... and whatever bullshit programs they decide to lie about.

In other words if "Laquisha" keeps having kids and she can't afford child care, guess what?

Your Air Jordan's are footing the bill!

If "Bud from the Militia" has a drug problem and needs a check  guess what?

Your New Balance is giving him a new life.

If  Hector is released from prison and needs job training, guess what?

Your Adidas is aiding him.

This is one of the brightest and dumbest ideas ever concocted by politicians!

The majority of people that buy sneakers are Minorities!

Minorities single handily have put placed Air Jordans as the top selling shoe of all time.

No correction is needed.

In the beginning it was the minority (majority) buying that overpriced shoe.

We've made it cool to splurge on a $250 sneaker.

Politicians are thinking, well if folks can afford to buy a pair of shoes a week, then
maybe we will pay the extra tax.

We are already paying a king's ransom for alcohol, cigarettes and water.

People bitched and griped about the extra money they pay for these items, yet we still purchase.

Politicians realize the same with sneakers.

We want the next big thing (sneaker).

We will stand in line, fight for position and damn near trample a person for a pair of shoes.

I love sneakers too. But, I be damned if  I pay over $50 for a shoe.

As usual politicians sneak some shit in on folks and no ones paying attention!

Politicians know that if its something we love, we will continue to buy!

Just waiting on the next pimp move.

I wonder how much is going to cost to just fucking breath?!!!

Sweat Shops

Why are do we worry so much about other countries?

Why are we so quick to pass judgement towards countries that handle matters differently?

When will national programs like 20/20, Fox News, NBC or CBS report the obvious?

We are swift with criticism towards countries like: China, Taiwan, and other places outside

of America, when in fact we have sweat shops right here in our back yard!

Think about it. Corporate America, has seen fit to cut jobs and ask new employees to accept
 minimum RAGE as a means to survive.

Let's remember folks minimum rage is 8.25 in the state of Illinois. So imagine if you're living in the southern states. The cost of LIVING is lower which means so is their minimum RAGE.

That being said. corporate now wants me and you to bust our asses for that shitty amount.

Boehner says that what we make is more than enough.

That I can make ends meet with that pay rate.

Also understand that workers no longer get the full forty hours either.

So, Republicans/Democrats/Indepents/Tea Party how are Americans suppose to survive.

That's why corporate America should be called the corporate sweat shops of the world.

Were being treated just like folks overseas.

Companies have it al figured out.

Cut corners, by cutting cost of employees(pay rate), cut hours, work the fuck out of us, treat us like shit.

Try to take what little dignity that we have left and shove it down our throat!

I can bitch about it because, I'm experiencing this shit myself!

Seeing it first hand, how little thought, concern or sympathy goes into the decision making.

I'm referring to the little man/woman.

As for me, I have a worse than some, but far better than others.

I don't have a husband who was just laid off!

I don't have two teenage daughters\!

I don't have a mortgage!

I don't have a car note!

Now let's tack on all the other shit caving in around us.

Chicago Transit Authority is increasing our fare.

Chicago has now become the murder capital of the world!!

So lets see, I have to duck and dodge bullets trying to get to the train station!

Only to be told there's an  equipment problem. (Brand New Train)

Then get to my job and work 7.5 hours of 8.25 an hour!

It gets better...I have to do the same shit on the way home!!
