Take a gander at this article: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32318456/ns/world_news-mideastn_africa
I would think the Iraqi government would have more things to worry about than smoking in public places. Hell, two truck bombs just went of in Mosul and a couple other attacks happened in Baghdad.
Here's a thought Iraqi Government; How about you concern yourselves with who is doing the bombing. Oh wait, you will probably give me the same answer most of your employees I trained did. We can't find who is doing it because it's to dangerous.
How about ya get your pansy asses out there and do some real work and protect the people of your country instead of trying to pass stupid ass laws. Especially when you have car bombs still going off. I would think that is a greater risk to ones heath vs. Second hand smoke.
I guess they are just following what they learned from our government though. Let's just make up some stupid shit to make it look like we are working instead of handling the real issues at hand.
Personally, I could give two shits about Iraq and the Middle East. If they wanna blow each other up in the name of Allah, so be it. Get our asses out of there and let them go at it. Same with Afghanistan.
But wait.. We, the U.S.A., for some reason have to be the great protectors. For WHAT??
Let's take a look at how many Americans have lost their lives in this bullshit. Let's take a look at how much money we have spent. For WHAT? Not a damn thing, that's what. Is that area of the country any better than it was? Hell no. It's still just as screwed up because we don't make them help themselves.
Here's a novel idea.. How about we take care of our own country first! Imagine just for a moment what all of that money spent over the last 5-6 years on the war could have done if it was spent on fixing this country. Would we have the economic issues we have now?
That brings me to another point. When I call a customer service number, I want to speak to someone that speaks English. I don't want to speak to Aboo in the middle of India or wherever their at. How about we keep those jobs in America and pay Americans to do them. Oh, that's right.. If we move them overseas and pay those guys pennies on the dollar, I as a company will make more money. Well, it's BULLSHIT!!!!
Here's an idea.. How about we fix our own country before trying to fix others. We are just as screwed up, if not more so, than the others. So who the hell do we think we are that we can fix it?
I say we worry about us and fix us first. Only than can we help the rest of the world. Just a thought.
Well, not sure if any of that made sense or not. Just had to get it out after reading that article. I could continue on this rant, but it's not good for my blood pressure.
Let me leave you with this final thought. Now that the Commander-in-Chief is no longer my boss I can say this…. Obama is a jackass and just like every other politician.. Make all of these promises during the campaign and than do something completely different once elected. Notice how I said like every other politician.. Yes, even us Republicans aren't perfect and I agree that G.W. could screw up a wet dream, but that's besides the point.
