Visions of War

Members of the Republican-led committee were searing in their criticism of the Secret Service after Iraq War veteran Omar Gonzalez breached at least ‘five rings’ of security in making it all the way to the Green Room of the White House in the Sept. 19 incident.

This is the first sentence of a NY Daily News in regards to the recent white house security breeches. While NY Daily News is not a reputable source as if any media service is, it still brings to light many issues.
First is the fact that the secret service is having security issues. While we have all seen the photos of the secret service out partying and spending the tax dollars of hard workers, we are not always seeing the breeches in security. 
Second is the issue that no one is covering and is most important. The person who breeched the security of the white house is an Iraq war veteran. This raises many disturbing facts. What is actually going on that veterans are coming home and killing family members, committing suicide, and what makes one want to get into the white house assumably to harm the president who created this war. You may argue that obama did not create this war, but he didn’t end it in his two month time period, and he has reinitiated the war so it’s now his war.
Veterans need to be cared for. Not for the fact that some patriotic tea baggers think they are saving us from a false evil, but for the simple reason that these women and men are seeing the worst of humanity and are being told to commit the worst of human atrocities in the name of capitalism. Again someone may argue that they are defending freedom and democracy, but in order for that to be true we would need to have freedom and democracy.

My problem in life is that I always told the truth. I never held back what some may think others should not know.

We live in an age of distrust. Yet the media, government, church, schools, and rich can sell us anything and we will believe it with our mouths open for more.

I've adapted, but never changed.

...and Yet Again

This time the name is Darrien Hunt, and I don't need to tell you the story, the excuses, the lies. What needs to be told is kids of color are losing their lives to good old boy fear. Insecure white men fear black men. PERIOD. End of story.
It does not matter if he lunges at you, if he has a weapon, if there is report of violence, if there is a history of criminal activity. When one person sees another person we should accept the differences and find the common interests. It does not matter if the other person has a weapon or is bigger than us. It matters that we can live without fear and be able to confront violence with a calm and well mannered demeanor.
The people carrying out these killings take an oath to serve and protect and color nor beliefs are to play a role in who is protected and served. The people who choose to go into a line of work where they become a servant to ALL people should understand their safety is in jeopardy, but they should equally understand that other's lives are in their hands and they must uphold all respect to protect even the people that may do harm. Officers should be trained to shoot as a last resort and NEVER to shoot to kill.
