I spent my afternoon biting back obscenities if you must know.

President Obama: makes a joke about killing the Jonas Brothers with drones.

Here’s a nice quote too:

“TBIJ reports that from June 2004 through mid-September 2012, available data indicate that drone strikes killed 2,562 – 3,325 people in Pakistan, of whom 474 – 881 were civilians, including 176 children. TBIJ reports that these strikes also injured an additional 1,228 – 1,362 individuals,” according to the Stanford/NYU study.

Based on interviews with witnesses, victims and experts, the report accuses the CIA of “double-striking” a target, moments after the initial hit, thereby killing first responders.

This is why I voted Ron Paul.  This is why when I travel abroad this summer, I refuse to wear the camouflage National Guard backpack my dad offered to me for a carry-on.  The word America is no longer beautiful the way I believed it was when my kindergarten class faced the flag with “I pledge allegiance…”  I am not proud of our government.  I am not proud of what we are doing to other countries.

Yes, “we”.  The American public who elected this monster a second time…

I haven’t been into politics since “that thing which happened” (read: personal issues).  Man.  I forgot how much anger I used to carry to this.  I’ve been sitting at home listening to music and looking at random nonsense for the past year and a half.  I nearly forgot about our crappy government.
