10)I would like Pat Lynch to shut the hell up. This douchebag has been saying some of the dumbest things imaginable for 15 years now. For those unaware, he has been the head of the police union in NYC, which must bear some responsibility for our out of control police force there. Let's take a look at some of his worst from Gawker.com:
June 2000: Lynch argued that Bruce Springsteen’s song about four NYPD officers shooting and killing an unarmed 23-year-old named Amadou Diallo was interfering with those (acquitted) officers’ “healing”:
Singer Bruce Springsteen has begun performing in concert a song called “American Skin”—the title seems to suggest that the shooting of Amadou Diallo was a case of racial profiling—which keeps repeating the phrase, “Forty-one-shots.” I consider it an outrage that he would be trying to fatten his wallet by reopening the wounds of this tragic case at a time when police officers and community members are in a healing period, and I have let his representatives and the press know how I feel about this song.
July 2010: Lynch defended a cop who was videotaped shoving a bicyclist off his bike by calling the victim an “anarchist”:
The anarchists were looking for a confrontation with police and found it in an rookie officer trying to do his job the best way he knew how. The conditional discharge doesn’t mitigate the fact that New York City has one less police officer today who could have served the city well.
October 2011: Lynch defended the widespread but illegal practice of ticket-fixing as institutionally sanctioned within the N.Y.P.D. (and therefore above the law):
When asked about ticket fixing, Lynch stated, “Ticket fixing was conduct accepted at all ranks for decades.”
December 2014: Lynch blamed Eric Garner for his own death at the hands of a N.Y.P.D. officer:
“We feel badly that there was a loss of life,” said Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association. “But unfortunately Mr. Garner made a choice that day to resist arrest.”
He also argued that critics were deliberately ignoring the moral character of the officer who placed Garner in a chokehold:
“He is the model of what we want a police officer to be,” P.B.A. president Pat Lynch said of Pantaleo. “What’s also been lost is the character of police officer Daniel Pantaleo. What’s not being told is what kind of man and what kind of person and what kind of professional he is. He is a resident of this great city. He lives on Staten Island. He lives in those neighborhoods. He’s college educated, here in this city. He’s a mature, mature police officer who’s motivated by serving the community.”“He literally, literally, is an Eagle Scout,” said Lynch, adding that the maneuver Pantaleo used on Garner was a “textbook” takedown.
This man is a loon and he's in charge of one of the largest police forces on Earth. And then we wonder why cops keep killing people randomly in NYC. I have been a victim of his price fixing, when some ass cop in NYC gave me a ticket for going 62 in a 55 and then writing it up to 69. Yeah that was fair. Lynch went to say that killing people who shouldn't have resisted arrest is fine, which is very Nazi-ish of him. So heil Hitler you scum sucking dick, you're there to protect the people not just yourselves.
8)I would like Republicans to sit down, drink a glass of wine and maybe, just maybe, read the freaking New Testament of the Bible. Nothing they are doing is even remotely Christian and a lot of it is in direct contradiction to the words of Christ. How is that possible that the book you so revere seems to never get taken off the shelf? I am a lapsed Catholic and even I read the Bible every now and then. There's some fascinating stuff in there. I just wish the morons didn't read things into it that were never meant to be. Christ's words are more important than his actions. Just saying.
7)I would like Democrats to take a long hard look at Sony and realize that they knew when to show some balls. You guys keep digging your own grave, get buried in it, come back to life when the GOP drives us into a wall and then you start the whole sad process all over again. It's insanity. Liz Warren is a hot commodity because she speaks to the people about things they care about. If it was outside the womb this last election, it didn't matter in some weird reversal of what made the Republicans lose in 2012. Voters care more about jobs and the economy than abortion and you guys were tone deaf to that. I swear to God if you pick Hillary Clinton as your next nominee, and God help us, Bush 3, I am doing everything I can to make sure no one votes. It will be real hard to enact a mandate for either side if only a few million people vote for you.
What's more, savings have dropped to pre-2003 levels as people are spending more on, wait for it, Obamacare. I said from day one that Obamacare has a lot going for it. Cost savings for anyone not getting subsidies, not going to happen. And it isn't. Unfortunately, those making say $80,000 a year a far from well off depending on which market they live, and they are driving up credit cards debt and savings declines. Add to the fact that most of the jobs being created suck and pay nothing and we are not headed in the right direction. Oh and by the way, the number one thing that drove up the GDP were stock buybacks which is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme. Sometime soon, prices will be too high to keep buying at the rates they need to "grow" and then the whole house of cards goes belly up.
5)I would like racism to disappear. This means black people too who seem to see race EVERYWHERE now. Need something off a shelf. Racist. Traffic stop due to tail light out. Racist. Getting shot five times while charging a cop. Racist. It's not always because you're black. Sometimes, people see you as human which is what I thought you wanted in the first place. There's still white racism, but we marginalize it as best we can. No one is having White Power rallies at the local PTA. To quote Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?"
3)I would like to give Obama some props for doing the right thing lately when it came to Cuba, North Korea and immigration reform. Had he done these things, I don't know, maybe sometime before the last election, democrats wouldn't have taken such an epic beating. Just saying. But Obama's popularity is rising again and with good reason: he's doing his job. Congress could learn a thing or two about that.
2)I would like to thank my beautiful fiancée (yes the Warmonger is getting married) who has been with me even when I was deathly ill and weighed 105 pounds, in agonizing pain every day. She never complained once and never once thought of leaving me. I love her with all my heart.
