Damn you Jack Sparrow!

November 19, 2008

So, as anyone with half a brain knows, going sailing in your ship off the coast of Somalia right now is pretty much an incredibly stupid idea. The Piracy and lawlessness in the area is getting rather idiotic. Seriously folks, it’s like that old joke about going to the doctor.

“Doc, it hurts when I do this!”
“Then don’t do that!”

Seriously, if pirates are capturing ships off Somalia, don’t fucking go there. If you HAVE to go there, perhaps arming your ship against the pirates would be a good idea. Lessee here, they come with RPG’s and machineguns, so I reccomend getting at least the same or similar just so you can defend yourselves. As many people have proven over the years, if you defend yourself they are more likely to go looking elsewhere rather than possibly fucking die by your hands.

BUT, this week alone, a Saudia Arabian oil tanker was taken over by pirates, and two days ago a cargo ship full of grain from Iran was taken hostage. Such sweet sweet irony. Iranians taken hostage, it made me giggle for a moment.

However, the reason for the rather fast actions the past few days on the pirates part is possibly due to their home base ship being fucking sunk by the Indian Navy. Not the American Navy, who would have been yelled at as unilateral, illegal, and immoral because we didn’t fucking talk to them about how their feelings had been hurt, but by the Indian navy,

An Indian warship has exchanged fire with a pirate “mother vessel” off the hijacking-plagued Horn of Africa, leaving the ship ablaze in the Gulf of Aden, an official said Wednesday. 

The skirmish took place Tuesday evening about 525 kilometers southwest of Oman’s Salalah port when the frigate INS Tabar spotted a suspected pirate ship with two speedboats in tow, India’s Defense Ministry reported.

“This vessel was similar in description to the ‘Mother Vessel’ mentioned in various piracy bulletins,” the ministry said in a written statement.

The battle follows a recent surge in piracy off the Horn of Africa, including the weekend hijacking of a Saudi-owned supertanker by pirates based in largely lawless Somalia.  

Three other vessels have been captured since then in what a London-based maritime official called a “completely unprecedented” situation.

When the Tabar’s crew hailed the ship and demanded it stop for inspection, the pirates threatened to destroy the Indian ship, the ministry reported.

“Pirates were seen roaming on the upper deck of this vessel with guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers. The vessel continued its threatening calls and subsequently fired upon INS Tabar,” the ministry said.

The Indian frigate returned fire, setting the pirate ship ablaze and setting off explosions on board, the statement said. Two speedboats in tow behind the ship fled; one was found abandoned after a pursuit by the Tabar.

Now, I dont know what the Captain actually said when he communicated with his government and the rest of the world, but I really hope it was something like this.

“We have engaged the enemy, and burned them to the water line. Unfortunatly our boarding action was cancled when explosions began on target vessel. Our saddened crew returned their cutlasses to the armory. Please send more Pirates.”

Of course, the UN will open a trilateral commission to get an understanding of what is going on, an indepth analasis of why the parties were fighting in the first place, and end up blaming it on Indian Aggression. Not that, ya know, the Pirates fired first or anything.

Kudos Indian Navy. Send the rest of the fucking bastards to the bottom of the ocean to join their buddies.

And the Iranian hostages can fucking join them.

So…

During the 2000 and 2004 election cycles, when it ended up with Bush being the winner both times, democrats by and large threw public fits. They compared Bush to a chimp, they insulted the republicans (Calling us Rethuglicans and the like), they claimed we stole the election and other similar nonsense. Yet, this time, when THEY win the election, they now think that we are all unified behind Obamunism. They believe that we will all hang around and sing kumbayah while we burn all examples of civilization down around us.

These, the same people who started websites like www.fuckthesouth.com apologytotheworld.com and similar. Now they feel magnanimous and want everyone to be friendly.

Apologies, but fuck that right in the ear. For eight years democrats have decried the republican party, they have insulted our president, and they have done their level best to ruin this country of ours. Of course, the “compassionate conservative” wing of the Republican party hasn’t done much to stop them honestly, and only rarely did you hear or read of people fighting back against the moonbattery. Well, here’s one person who intends to give them just as much shit as they threw at us. They labeled our president an idiot, I call theirs a communist. They called us war mongering, I call them fucking traitors.

Fuck you democrat party, fuck your party, fuck your “reaching out” and fuck your pretending you didn’t act like a bunch of howling monkeys for eight years. While I know that far and wide those on my side of the political spectrum act more… adult than you have, I personally do not mind stooping down to your level to give you a bit of your own right back. So as a friend of mine says, BOHICA.

Bend over, here it comes again.

November 5th.

Yes, I haven’t posted in a while. I won’t go into private stuff so we’ll just let it sit there and I’ll acknowledge that I did not post for quite some time. I’ve never been a huge blogger, nor do I expect to ever become such.

That said, I know that some people in this country are celebrating, while others right now are despondant. Personally, I could fall into the despondant section in some ways, and into the apprehensive category in others. Let me say for the record that I did not vote for Barak Obama, and I did not do so because of his economic policies, social policies, constitutional ignorance, and leftward agenda. I did not vote against him because of his race as some may have, I also do not feel that his election in this country is because of anything other than the severe distaste that a large part of the electorate has for George Bush and the Republican party at the moment. This election was going to be hard on anyone with the letter “R” beside their name no matter who they were or where they lived.

Even places that traditionally vote very conservative, such as Texas, had hard tough fights for Republican candidates. That said, Obama won, and my hat is off to him. He won because of the dislike people have for the current administration, he won because his message talked to so many who felt disenfranchised because of the way the political system works, and yes, he won because he energized a large portion of a voter block who normally does not participate much in the election. Congratulations Barak Obama, you won. America, you get the president you voted for, not the one I voted for, but the one voted for by majority.

Personally, I intend to see who comes out of the woodwork to lead the Republican party during this four years, and I intend to see if they espouse the same values that I hold dear before I give them any support. Because while I may have voted for McCain, I did not like him, and would have prefered anyone else in his place.

Good Luck America, I fear we may need it.
