Crime & Punishment

America is one of, if not THE most crime-ridden, murdering, drug addicted, raping, child abducting countries in the world.  The people that are charged with these crimes are given a much too lenient sentence.  Many of these people are back out in society in no time, free to make someone else a victim.

First, let’s look at our legal system.  To be blunt, it’s a fucking joke. To watch lawyers at work in a courtroom is like watching a Saturday Night Live skit.  I really don’t know how defense attorneys can live with themselves. Their main priority in life is to keep murderers, rapists, gang members, and drug dealers free to continue to plague society.  Then there’s the jury.  Now, in past blog posts, I’ve pointed out many many reasons as to why the average American person is fucking stupid.  Well these same people, a jury of a murderers “peers”, are responsible for deciding the fate of somebody who just took your loved one from you forever.  All it comes down to is how convincing each lawyer can be to this jury of mouth breathers…regardless of what the evidence shows.  Case and point, the O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony trials.  There are many like them that go on in this country all the time, but just don’t get the same public attention as those two. 

Now, if the criminal is unlucky enough to get a jury with some common sense, that person is sent to prison.  Our prison system is even more laughable than our courtrooms.  In many cases, life in prison is often more accommodating for people than their life on the outside was.  Televisions, weight rooms, and conjugal visits surprisingly don’t strike a great deal of fear into the hearts of the habitual offenders. Now remember, our prison system is supposed to “rehabilitate” people so that they will be law abiding citizens when they are released back into society.  Are you fucking kidding me?  Rehabilitated?  People in prison learn to be even MORE criminal minded during their stay.  People in prison learn many different techniques from fellow inmates to hone their criminal craft, so that the odds of getting away with their crimes in the future are much better.  How’s that for rehabilitated?

So what’s the solution, you ask?  Well it’s very simple.  All of the sympathetic bleeding-heart types out there won’t like it…but those people can go fuck themselves. They’re nothing more than enablers for criminals anyway.  So my solution has two parts: dismemberment and death.  Now I absolutely hate middle eastern countries, but I have to admit that when it comes to punishment for crimes, they got it right.  We should adopt the same toughness.  For first time offenders for crimes besides murder, we start cutting shit off.  Maybe a hand or a foot…and obviously a dick in rape cases.  Now if that doesn’t get through to the offender and that person commits another crime, then it’s instant death.  Right on the spot. Done. Problem solved.  For murder cases, instant death…no second chances.  Now if America actually put this into practice, crime in this country would deplete to practically null. That is enough to drive real fear into people, and they wouldn’t even consider committing a crime.  Like I said, it’s not pretty, but it would be effective as hell.  And let’s remember that it’s for the safety and well being for all of us out there who walk the straight and narrow, and who are good, honest people. You know…the victims.

It's Not What You Know...

Have you ever worked at a job (or in your current job) where there are a few people, if not more, that have absolutely no business being there at all?  I think we've all had to deal with this problem at one point or another, or you are currently dealing with it. 

I'm really tired of seeing people get really good jobs for all the wrong reasons.  In today's economic turmoil, even being able to find a shit job is tough, much less be lucky enough to land a great one.  That's why it angers me so much when I see shitbag people in positions that they shouldn't be in. They either don't have the qualifications to do the job, or they have the qualifications, but their work ethic is fucking horrible. For instance...where I work, there are a few people that are only employed there because they had "hookups" from someone already working there.  There is one douchebag in particular who has absolutely no background in our line of work whatsoever, but happens to be a friend of the family of the big boss. This guy is only good for two things, standing around drinking coffee and socializing.  He should consider doing those two things professionally, because he isn't worth a fuck to our company.  As far as performing the duties that the job requires, he fucks up on a daily basis. But he still maintains a nice secure paycheck, and why?  There are several other people out there who are very qualified to be working at my company, but are getting turned down left and right, and have to settle for a much lower paying job that they're overqualified for. 

Now, with the economy in the shitter, many companies are having to lay off employees just to be able to afford to keep their doors open.  And when it comes time to start letting people go, do you really think that the boss's buddy would get the axe?  Nope. It's going to be the guy who has earned his job there and has been an invaluable asset to the company's success that gets fucked over.  Meanwhile, the person who's main priority in the workday is checking their facebook, talking on the cell phone, and sharing the latest employee gossip over coffee and a smoke gets to keep on getting paid. 

Ever since I was old enough to have a job, I've always heard the phrase, "It's not what you know, it's WHO you know" being thrown around a lot.  Although it is a common cliche, it still rings painfully true.  It's sad when you put so much work, effort, education, and determination into learning a skill that will benefit you and your family financially, and then some dead-beat leisurely strolls right in front of you and takes it right out from under you, almost effortlessly.

So to all you recent college grads out there that are looking forward to grabbing the world by the horns, well I hope you majored in social networking...because that's most likely what's going to get you that dream job.  Good luck.

Bad Drivers

So far in this blog, I've discussed all kinds of different people who piss me off for many different reasons.  But nothing can make me more enraged, or borderline psychotic than the douchebags I have to deal with with I'm driving.  People have always made me mad when I'm driving, but these days it's much worse.  I have a child now, so I'm obviously extremely protective of my precious cargo.  So when somebody does something stupid on the road, they are endangering the safety of my child.  It's one thing to put my life at risk with your shitty driving, but to put my child's life at risk REALLY makes me want to bash your fucking skull in.

In an earlier post, I discussed the "It's All About Me" type of mentality that is now plaguing most Americans these days.  Nothing can be more blatantly apparent than when you are driving.  People see you coming, but they will just pull right out in front of you, without warning. Even more so if you are on a motorcycle.  They think that just because their vehicle is bigger than yours, that they automatically have the right of way.  Pure simplistic, moronic way of thinking.  A close friend of mine was killed on his motorcycle because some fuckstain pulled out in front of him using the "my car is bigger" rationality...and it's almost happened to me on a motorcycle on 3 different occasions.

Another popular trend is running red lights.  I see this more and more each day.  The town I live in has installed traffic cameras at most intersections that automatically ticket people that run red lights, but those cameras aren't doing a bit of good.  Americans are in such a big damn hurry to do everything, that they can't be burdened to sit at a red light for 45 seconds.  No, they would much rather risk t-boning you at 50mph because that trip to Wal-Mart to buy a carton of cigarettes and a pregnancy test is so much more important than the lives of you and your family.

The next thing I've always wondered about is why people find it so difficult to use a goddamn blinker.  Not only is it the law, but it's also just a common courtesy so that those around you know where the fuck you're going.  But, as I stated in an earlier post, common courtesy is dead and gone.  Besides the idiots that never use their blinker, then you have the idiots that drive for miles and miles with their blinker on.  Are you wondering what that clicking noise coming out of your dashboard is?  Well it's your blinker, fuckstick...turn it off! 

Now once all of these idiotic drivers are done terrorizing everyone on the road, they make their way home and do yet another thing that bothers me to no end...park in the street instead of their empty driveway.  This baffles me.  Why would would you park in the street when you have a perfectly empty, spacious driveway?  Now that part of the street is narrowed down to one lane....and people have to wait on oncoming traffic before they can proceed around your damn car.  My dream in life is to one day buy an old clunker car, and take it to all residential neighborhoods and just fucking smash it into any vehicle I see parked in the street. Yes, it's good to have goals.
