9/16/16 Things on my mind

Let’s take it back to the origins of Things on My Mind if I may.

  1. So here are a few things God has let happen in the past month or so.
    • In New Mexico, Michelle Martens purposely gave her 10 year old daughter meth so Michelle’s boyfriend and his friend could  sexually assault/rape the girl. One of the guys strangled and stabbed her during the attack, resulting in her death. If that wasn’t bad enough, one guy had sex with the girl after she was already dead.  They then proceeded to cut up her body.  Now to add to the fuckery of this entire thing, Michelle admitted that this was not the first time she let men do this and that she invited guys over to do it to her daughter, as it was a form of sexual gratification for her.
    • A New Jersey man beat his girlfriend’s 2 year old toddler, telling the boy to “put up his hands” to fight while the couple argued over groceries. The guy was pissed about the type of groceries the lady bought and the boy stepped in to protect his mom.  The guy hit the kid twice in the torso.  Mind you this little kid is 40lbs.  The boy’s head struck the wall and the man hit him again, killing him.
    • I think we’ve all seen the picture of the two adults who overdosed on heroin in the car while a toddler is in the back seat.  Although the two adults were not dead, this kid will have that image sketched in his brain for years.
  2. We have some neighbors that have the cops called on them for what seems like every other week. The boyfriend, who is not on the lease, is abusive and the landlord knows this but hasn’t done a thing about it.  He was arrested again 2 weeks ago for domestic violence and our wonderful court system dropped the charges.  Now if this girl wants to continue letting him beat her ass, that’s on her. I understand the whole love is blind and its hard to leave an abuser thing.  But when you have a baby (not even a year old yet) living there when this shit goes on, you’d think it might be time to move the fuck on.  I have a feeling that one of three things are going to happen.
    • She is going to finally get smart and leave him.
    • He is going to finally snap and kill her.
    • He is going to finally snap and kill her, the baby and himself.
  3. I find it funny that the same people who bitch about Trump using Eminent Domain for his buildings are the same ones who can’t see the problem with the Dakota Pipeline.  Standing Rock Sioux native american’s have every right to complain and protest this pipeline. Originally the pipeline was supposed to have crossed the Missouri River near Bismarck, but was moved in fear that an oil spill would contaminate the capitals drinking water. Well, the same principle applies here.  If there is an oil spill, it will contaminate not only the water but the farming land and the sacred burial grounds of the Sioux people. I think that out of all the people in the US who bitch over inequality and oppression, Native Americans are the least aggressive and have a right to fight this. I mean damn, they were here first.  Do you also notice how they are not looting their neighborhoods or killing/hurting the workers. 100% peaceful protesting.
  4.  Working at the airport today I got to witness my first Honor Flight, and it was amazing. You had a generation of people who did not need a safe room because they are not a bunch of bitches. I laugh at teens or young adults who bitch about how bad the US is and how oppressed certain races are.  Then, they are the first ones who think we should allow certain refugees in here who don’t agree with our lifestyle.  These kids and young adults have no idea how lucky they are to live in a country where you are free to bitch and complain without fear of being killed over it. Personally, this is why i think the draft needs to come back.  Send each military member overseas for a 6 month tour to a hazardous pay country, just so they can see how good they have it when they come back here.

 

A little of this, A little of that.

Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

Some people have asked me about Texas and why I say “I’m coming home”.  No, I’m not from Texas, I’m from God’s wasteland called Iowa.  I did live in Texas for a little less then a year.  I ended up living in New Mexico during my time in the Air Force. Being gone those four years, showed me that the mid west is two years behind everyone else.  I was stationed at Holloman AFB in Alamagordo. For anyone who’s been there, you know that it’s a boring city where you really can’t do shit but have sex, work and do drugs. I love the southwest.  The smell of the air when it’s about to rain.  The smell of the dirt when it’s raining, yes, it’s a thing.  I miss the food and the culture.  It’s where i fell in love with Chico’s Taco’s and Swisha House. I learned that Mike Jones was only a phone call away ( 2813308004).

During my time at Holloman, my boys and I would visit El Paso (specifically the bars) and we would visit Juarez  and go to the Derby for their drink and drown deals.  For those unfamiliar with drink and drown, it’s basically you pay $5 bucks and drink all night for free….and drink we sure did.

The southwest was home, even if it was just for those 4 years.  I passed up orders to Germany because I loved it there.  Well…to be honest, i passed up the orders because my girlfriend at the time was prego and I didn’t want to leave here by herself. But the southwest is where i wanted to raise our family.  Long story short, we ended up not having a child and that’s a whole other story.

My mom had asked me why I came back and not stay in New Mexico or TX, since all i do is complain about being here.   Honestly, I ask myself that question every day.  My wife and I are going back to Tx in a few months to visit an old military friend and who knows, maybe she’ll fall in love with it as much as I did.
