Positive Sarcasm Presents: The Day The Music Died.

 

One night in Manchester, England, 8 year old Saffie Rose Roussos was in attendence for a large concert along with her sister and mother. They were on their way out of the show when two reported explosions sent the 18,000 in attendance running in a full panic for the city streets. The shrapnel pierced through the dreams and futures of 22 people. Little Saffie died that night...and she has forever changed my opinion.

If you've ever seen Schindler's List, the entire movie is shown in black and white, except for the coat of one little Jewish girl was wearing happened to be shown in red. Later on in the movie, you see a pile of bodies being carted away and within that pile of bodies, you clearly see a tarnished red coat...that's little Saffie.

The Islamic State has claimed involvement with the suicide bombing; which ended little Saffie's life so early. A group with a trained army numbering in the thousands, supported by countries with populations in the millions, backed by Middle Eastern Investors with assets in the billions. Their countrymen cheered in the middle east and in the streets of New York the day the planes hit the towers. This isn't terrorism, this is war...against freedom...and freedom is starting to lose ground.

In all my articles, in all my research, in all my efforts spent to possibly offer a softer solution to this threat, I can't hold this opinion in any longer. Little Saffie made it very clear to me that we are now at war with an entire region, a distorted ideal, and with ourselves. Even though the middle east has spent many centuries fighting themselves, the Islamic Alliance is growing and spreading, just like the Third Reich.

In the late 1930's, Great Britain waited until the Nazi Regime gained majority control of Europe, North Africa, and Western Soviet Union, and had already set plans in place to “eliminate” the Jews. Only when the Nazi's marched into Poland in 1939 did Great Britain declare a state of war against Germany, only to have most of London leveled by German warplanes where over 40'000 civilians died. It wasn't until December of 1941 that the US entered the fight against this “radical ideal” and took over 5 years of nonstop fighting, bombings, invasions and countless amounts of death to defeat this hate. It was ruthless, barbaric and nasty in every conceivable way...but that's war and because the British and The United States waited so long to step in, it was completely necessary. Yet, there sits Israel nearly 70 years later, surrounded by the same kind of hatred, countries full of people that want them exterminated. Why, you ask? At this point, does it really matter?

I've come to the conclusion that we're not going to win the hearts and minds of all those in the Middle East and it's surrounding areas. Not all those in the Middle East are Terrorists or Terrorist Sympathizers, but not all Germans were Nazis either. We still went in and leveled Berlin, it took every man willing and able to defeat this plague of humanity and now it will take every man and woman to do what is necessary again.

Whatever your beliefs are, it's important that your community police itself, cus if you don't, a larger, less forgiving force will have to step in to remind those who commit such atrocities and even those who refuse to condemn them that there will always be a precipice to what someone can tolerate.

Here we sit, just like the British did not long ago, only we are arguing with one another, calling each other racists, bigots and phobic. Meanwhile...Orlando, San Bernadino, Sweden, Paris, Germany and many other places just keep getting added to the list, with the glaring exception of Dubai. We know where they are, we know who supports them, we know who funds them. Just because we didn't sign a declaration of war doesn't mean the world isn't at war. This will be the largest and most important battle that the world will ever face, cus it will challenge the very ideals of our own upbringings, it will challenge families, friends and faith to a point most cannot comprehend and only a few are currently willing to accept. Love will not stop this threat to our way of life, but a lack of funds and a massive air campaign backed by a constant reminder that your only as strong as the resources you possess. Halt this massive flood of refugees who refuse to adapt to our way of life and who instead establish regions in these countries, including our own, under some twisted and archaic ideal known as Sharia Law, a widely debated ideal born from the Q'uran.

If your not willing to accept what has to be done over there in a land filled with hate...hate for gays, Jews, free thinkers, independent women, educated children, and pretty much any other religion, then I suggest you try this exercise tonight with your spouse:

Sit down with your love and let them know that when your son or daughter leaves home tonight, that they are not coming back, because of a large group of people that do not believe in your ideals of how to raise a family, so it's only fair that an improvised explosive pierce through the very fabric that holds the sanctity of your home together. Say goodbye to your child, kiss them one more time, let them know that even though you care for them deeply, you have decided that the world as it is now is the one your willing to accept. No candlelight vigil will ever stop this. No campaign on social media will ever stop this. No singing songs of love will put a stop to what is transpiring as we sit here and allow our culture to be softened before it swallowed. This isn't “Whoville” and we're not fighting the Grinch. They're not stealing our toys, their stealing our children. their hearts won't grow three times the size, but their army and influence will.

22 people died in Manchester, England on May 22, 2017 and yet all I see is little Saffie's face...there will never be another.

POSITIVE SARCASM PRESENTS: THE TEN ABANDONMENTS

Well to be honest, I wasn’t in the best place to celebrate my 50th article, was too busy chasing trophies, truths and triumphs, so I figure 60 is a solid number to really turn up the heat on of my favorite subjects, deadbeat parents…and there’s one in particular that’s currently in my cross-hairs.

If we’re all God’s children, then I reckon there are roughly 8 billion people on the planet with daddy issues. I’m surprised we’re not all hitting the stripper pole to Def Leppard and crying to a Shrink about our loveless sexual experiences as we desperately seek approval from some insignificant other.

The Almighty is a prick…and he’s lazy. Also his human resources department has a tendency to overlook things. You’d think that his robed flunkies over at the Vatican would have cleaned up that newsworthy mess where the priests were treating alter boys like a fridge full of Popsicles during a heat wave in July. Oh, that’s still going on? I didn’t know the almighty and often flighty had a hard-on for hiring felons, maybe consider hiring someone who maybe stole a car or ripped off a bank and not some kids pants.

Someone should impeach his Holy Spirit’s ass for this line of bullshit about the Jewish people being chosen ones. Chosen for constant invasion and persecution since the age of man, chosen to have their cities bombed since Israel was declared a state, chosen to have their Olympic Team held hostage and massacred during the 1972 Munich Games, chosen to be filed into camps where they were shot, burned and gassed at a rate of up to 15,000 per day during World War II. Did you choose them for enlightenment or extinction? Get back to me on that…

Nice work with Jesus, by the way. You couldn’t have just put him up for adoption to a more caring family or maybe busted your holy nut on your girl’s belly button. “I turned around for two seconds to wash some chalices and next thing I knew, some assholes nailed him to a cross!”

Maybe if you laid off the wine a bit, you may have seen the angry mob grabbing a hammer and some nails, not to mention your son. What a waste of good lumber.

I know you see everything, your Holiness, but maybe you misplaced your glasses on that day, as well as the day Muhammad Atta and his band of Merry Martyrs poked two holes in the side of the World Trades Center. Did you misplace your bifocals that day, Grandpa? Cus you clearly didn’t see those poor souls leaping 70 stories just to avoid the flames only to wonder what could’ve happened if God wasn’t too busy rubbing one out in the bathroom to maybe catch one or two of those people. Maybe you were too busy prepping all those virgins for your new heavenly terrorist guests and since the business of terrorism is at an all time high, I guess you just have to keep up with the demand, snatching up the innocent whenever you can, whether it be a drunk driving accident involving a mother and her two children or a school shooting over in Connecticut…that’s why the good die so young.

Oh the lord works in mysterious ways. It’s his will, of course that allows Westboro Baptists to picket the funerals of soldiers and homosexuals. I guess Mr. Creation finds this rather comedic like he’s playing Sim City and every once in a while he decides to throw in couple mudslides over in parts of Indonesia or maybe a epidemic in Africa killing thousands everyday. Gotta keep the balance, don’t ya, big guy?

I think your children have run amok and your not sure how to handle all the movement of being a parent to “Kate plus 8 Billion”, so you kinda treat us like your little pinball machine that you guiltlessly tilt just to get the ball back.

…Or maybe you just left…you quit. After botching Jesus, you ditched your bitch and took off for the gated coastline of Heaven; which since your departure, left the rest of your holy city looking more like the suburbs of Detroit rather than a Utopia for do-gooders.

Yet, billions of people after everything that has happened; still believe in your lazy ass or some form of it, myself not included. You’ve abandoned your principles that were left to Moses. Maybe this is your chance to step up, take responsibility and try to better the situation with your kids. Rest assured if you don’t, after Richard Branson finishes production of the Zion Plane, I’ll have a first class ticket and will be first in line with a new pair of Air Jordan’s… that I’ll happily dirty when I shove my foot up your ass.
