Enough with two (or more) systems of justice in the United States
Shafter, CA, 09-20-2018 Thursday: Amigos, many people believe that we have two systems of justice in the country now. I guess that perhaps my assertion is true but I would also suggest that there is more than two as every member of a racial or ethnic minority that at one time or another was ‘unpopular’ understands that standing before a judge and facing a jury of one’s peers is little better than a crapshoot.
Black Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans for sure, and other groups like Muslims and Hindus have faced ostracization and discrimination but each group has also worked hard at persevering in a sometimes problematic culture.
We have another system of justice that I believe many are now awakening to, one in which, the ruling class- i.e. the elected politicians, their support staffs, and the Deep State swamp dwellers all seem to receive one form of justice while the rest of us who lack the necessary financial means with which to influence them receive quite another.
The 2016 Presidential Election was a test of wills, a battle of viewpoints, and a directional one as we made determinations as to which way the American people wanted the country to go.
Many, like me, became dispirited by the eight years of Barack Obama, although we supported him because we thought he was ‘one of us’ when in fact, he was ‘one of them,’ a member of the Deep State.
All the things he said he would do, few of them occurred although I see all manner of propaganda online claiming he worked ‘economic miracles’ and that he did all of these other things that seemingly never took root or became an economic disaster and national embarrassment like Obamacare.
To see him out there attacking the current president is somewhat mortifying. I would have been outraged had former President George W. Bush gone out on the campaign trail attacking President Obama. When a president leaves office, tradition says that he (or one day, she) leaves office and goes mute.
This does not mean that a former president cannot comment on things; what it does mean is that to go out and lambaste a current president for doing things his (or one day her) way is beyond the pale.
It is something that should not be done just like a former secretary or state should not be conspiring with our enemies, telling them to ‘wait out the current occupant of the White House as when one of ours gets in, things will go back to normal.’
People were angry over the seemingly criminal acts committed by the Iranians against the American people when Barack Obama was in the White House. I am talking about the hostages of ours they held without having broken a single Iranian law.
Moreover, I am sharing my views on the outrageous behavior the Iranian Revolutionary Guard exhibited when they captured our two patrol boats in the Persian Gulf and took our U.S. Navy sailors hostage for several days. What was up with that?
Then, there was the matter of the MASSIVE cash payments made to the Iranian mullahs in exchange for MOST of our hostages.
Moreover, one would think that a payment of more than a billion dollars to the Iranians was something we never should have done because those criminal scumbags use that money to finance destabilizing wars around the Middle East and to fund terrorist groups that seek to attack not only the United States but our European allies and Israel.
In my view, the United States has been at war with Iran since the fall of the Shah. Once the ‘students’ occupied our embassy and kept our people in the dark for 444 days or whatever number it was, we should have known we were at war with the mullah scum and should have acted like it.
Granted, President George W. Bush was somewhat ‘odd’ as he launched what he said was a ‘first strike’ against Saddam Hussein and the Iraqis without solid proof that Saddam possessed the weapons over which, we went to war. If anything, he should have launched operations against Iran to destabilized those criminals SOBS because if anyone deserved toppling it was them.
Barack Obama coddled America’s enemies, for whatever reason, is unknown. We voted for Donald Trump for a variety of reasons, the economy and national security among them.
What’s more, we knew that Hillary was going to give us more of the same which was something unpalatable to anyone who had gone through eight years of Obama and eight years of Bush #43 before him. We wanted out of the incessant wars raging around the world.
The question is, have we gotten out of the wars? Does not seem like it. It seems like once they start, they have lives and minds of their own. However, it is up to us to put pressure on our leaders to stop these unnecessary wars.
As for Barack Obama and his ‘two-cents,’ I wish he would go mum- Desearía que cerrara la boca – and stop attacking the president. There is enough partisanship in the country now without him trying to relive his ‘greatest hits’ which were not all that great.
As for John F. Kerry, the man conducting shadow diplomacy around the world on behalf of the Deep State: I wish someone would charge him with consorting with foreign enemies and lock that big tonto up. Enough is enough. We must have ONE system of justice for everyone as if I did what that puto has done, I would be in jail talking to my wife through heavy-duty glass.
Muchas gracias, buen amigos! Nos vemos a la manana.

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960’s when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug.
