There are far more people in America right now who could tell you that Derek Jeter just played his last major league baseball game, an away game at Fenway Park against longtime ‘rival’ Boston, than could even try to guess the names of all the countries that are currently being blown the fuck up with our tax dollars, in our name…or have a clue that TWENTY-TWO folks we refer to as heroes as we send them off to bomb these countries we can’t even name or find on map, commit suicide every single day. I have nothing against Derek Jeter. He is a human being, no better or worse, and no more important in the grand scheme of things than any other human being. He became extremely wealthy playing playing a game that is one of the many methods used to distract us all from the fact that we are currently bombing a bunch of countries, more active duty soldiers kill themselves daily than are killed in combat, and TWENTY-TWO veterans kill themselves every single day. Many of whom were probably New York Yankees fans. So, as Hub fans bid Jeter adieu today, lets not lose sight of all the Derek Jeters of the world not fortunate enough to have been born with a talent deemed valuable by society and of course, with the opportunity to showcase that talent, and with the opportunity to not be blown the fuck up by American made bombs, but instead winding up being paid more money than the GDP of many countries, for the role they play in the modern day bread and circuses of the American empire. Cheers, Derek!
