The Uighurs

I’ve been reading a lot about the Uighurs in China.

You know what I’m talking about, right? The detention camps.

The media is trying to get us to be outraged over Chinese treatment of the Uighurs.

Are you?

I’ve got a better idea.

Let’s have the United States mind its own  business.

Let’s respect the sovereignty of nations.

Isn’t that what we always bark about so nobly?

We have our own problems in the United States. 

We don’t like it when people tell us how to manage our house.

So then why should we tell the Chinese how to manage their house?

We shouldn’t.

Let’s let China figure out China.

We can’t possibly know the dynamics of their country. 

Besides we have enough on our own plate.

Instead of worrying about China’s indoctrination, why don’t we take care of our own?

Every night on mainstream media Americans are indoctrinated into lies.

Oswald did it.

We landed a man on the moon.

Jets took down the World Trade Center. 

The Russians interfered in our elections.

It goes on and on.

If you tell a lie long enough, people will believe it.

And many do.

Hey, maybe our media is embellishing the story about how the Chinese treat the Uighurs.

Or maybe they aren’t and simply focus on it so as to take attention away from our own government’s shenanigans.

Your mainstream media works for the government – just like in China.

Did you know that?

That’s the real issue.

That’s the real event.

Not China.

Not the Uighurs.

What’s important is what is going on here in America.

And if our leaders can’t handle that, why don’t they put their money where their mouth is and stop trading with China and bring some real jobs back here?

Oh, the horror, the horror.

They’ll never do that.

Corporate shills that they are, they’d rather just bark about China in the press, pass worthless resolutions in Congress, and then, when the coast is clear, resume trade with China.

You see, our leaders have a great deal going with China.

The outsourcing of jobs makes them big bucks.

The Uighurs are a distraction, only to be used to take your eye off what is important.

This is how the magician works.

He waves his right hand in the air while the left hand manipulates the deck.

Clue One:  Our leaders don’t give a rat’s ass about social justice except for political posturing.

Dear Jerry

It’s not Jason Garrett’s fault.

It’s an attitude problem, and it’s organizational.

That’s right, you heard me.

You and the Cowboys have an attitude problem.

As stated before in another epistle, you and the Cowboys think you are all that.

You think that the rest of the league has to lay down for you because you believe yourselves to be America’s Team.

You’re not. That was an illusion that was created by Tex Schramm and Pete Rozelle. Brent Musburger more than anyone else helped this myth along. He was its chief promulgator.

The problem, Jerry, is that so many Cowboy fans along with you bought into this lie.

You’ve come to believe your own press clippings.

Helping this along were the five Super Bowl victories.

You got spoiled.

And lazy.

You now consider yourself football royalty.

You expect to be treated like royalty.

You expect the rest of the teams in the NFL to comply and lay down before you.

But they don’t.

They get out there and work their asses off, whereas your players don’t work nearly as hard.

Sure, your players have the talent, but talent alone in this league won’t make it.

You need to work. You need to be alert. You need to hustle.

That’s what’s missing in the Cowboys.

It’s an organizational problem. It involves the players, the coaches and most importantly you.

You all need to get off your asses and start working.

The blame game is over.
