Crazies With Guns

The following was written 9 months ago, September 9th 2015. It was never finished nor posted:

http://wolbbaltimore.newsone.com/2019290/gunman-at-large-after-opening-fire-and-killing-news-reporter-and-cameramanwe-love-you-alison-and-adam-pic-twitter-comhlszqi06xe-wdbj7-wdbj7-august-26-2015-platform-twitter-comwidgets/

Last month when I heard about the shootings of news reporter Alison Parker and Adam Ward on live TV, I was devastated. So much about this story bothered me. First of course was the loss of life in such a terrible and senseless tragedy, and right behind that was the fact that I knew the internet would deem it all fake. Which of course it immediately did. There are all sorts of places out there in the Wild Wild Web talking about this tragedy being another faked shooting by liberal media or some other PTB (Powers That Be). Another attempt to get more gun control or take away people’s guns. I get it… but in reality, when a shooting like this happens, gun sales go up. One day I will write about all the types of crazy ideas out there that these types of shootings are fake and just part of a larger conspiracy to scare and control us. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised to see many posts on such things turn up here in the near future… the whole thing  mesmerizes me in some way, it’s so twisted… and you know how I like to untwist.

This post though, is about the crazies with the guns, not the crazies trying to convince everyone there are no crazies with guns. So for sake of argument (and sanity) let’s just continue from here (at least for now) with the belief that this shooting and the others discussed here really happened and people really were killed, and there loved ones loved and miss them.

In other words, let’s have a discussion on gun control under the belief this shooting and double murder really took place and is not a conspiracy to take away people’s guns or scare us into buying more guns. Even then the discussion is divided.

Families of the victims, as well as liberal politicians immediately cried out for more gun control, or at least the gun control much of America agrees it needs… which is back ground checks. And of course conservative politicians were quick to point out that this shooting would not have been stopped by background checks. Excuse me for my lack of tact here, but I’d like to smack all of them.

I’m sick of every time we have these shootings we are immediately bombarded with politics. People lost their lives, people lost loved ones, and there is no time for grieving before the politics take over.

Now that there has been some time, I will way in on the whole discussion. I should start off by saying I do not consider myself a liberal or a conservative, though I am very liberal (look the word up) and have lots of conservative ideas. But liberals are crybabies who get nothing done in my book. And conservatives… selfish racist… is there any other way to see them? Both feel entitled while pointing the fingers at the other. So it’s no surprise to see them take these tragedies and make them about themselves and their agendas (parallels, I know you can see them).

Next let me say I don’t get it. What is the argument? One side says we need background checks, which I thought we had already agreed upon as a whole in this country, though obviously not, because so many want to point out that this shooting would not have been stopped with background checks. Why is this argument being made in this case then? I mean seatbelts do not prevent everyone from injury in an accident, yet the law still says to wear one.

Get what I’m saying? Why are we even having this argument at the sake of those who lost their lives here? So background checks wouldn’t have saved these people, but they might save others, right? So STFU! If you want to have a discussion about whether or not background checks work or are needed, have it (or keep having it, because it’s an argument that keeps coming back) Why does it have to be centered around this case? I just don’t get it.

There is a discussion to be had here though. So let’s have it:

 

That’s as far as I got. I had intended to get into a discussion/rant about mentally ill people and their rights to bear arms. And let’s be honest, do we want mentally unstable people to have guns? Trouble is, who is mentally unstable? Do they have to be declared  unstable by a doctor? That’s hard to do in some cases as we’ve seen here first hand. So if someone is reported unfit or unstable and they refuse to go see a doctor, should they then have their guns taken away? And what do police do? Go in and confiscate them? There is a lot to discuss when it comes to crazy people and guns, but I guess I felt it was pointless to discuss when a new story of crazy people and guns pops up way to often now.  And there is no simple solution to what we should do about it. So the post just sat there.

I did have a few links I put on the post that I would have used to show just a few examples of how LE has to deal with crazies and guns:

http://news3lv.com/news/local/lvmpd-sex-offender-william-snider-had-long-history-with-officers

And those were just a few that I found close to home. I had also a link to the story of John Donnally Acree:

http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/2015/04/30/nashville-police-investigate-shooting-reported-thursday-morning/26627255/

I brought up Dorothy’s friend John again because that last Vegas story I found reminded me of Mr Acree’s sad story. And this is where I would have ended the post wondering if John’s Acree’s story could have ended differently if his gun had been confiscated earlier on, or if it would have only sped up the inevitable. In other words when and how do we go about removing guns from someone deemed unstable. It’s a good question, and one we better start asking. I was gonna end the post with something like: “After all, how comfortable would any of us feel knowing Nan Nan had a gun?” That question is even scarier today.

The post was never finished and I sat in silence on the blog for a moment deciding if I would finish the post or move on and then the sad story Bella Bond came up and the post was lost… but not forever.

So why post it now? There have been plenty of crazies with guns since I wrote (or at least started) the post. In the past couple weeks we have seen crazy people use guns (as well as explosives) to spread terror throughout the world, but it’s what happened in Orlando that really got me to return to this post. What happened at Pulse Night Club brings to light all the types of crazy that can go into such tragedies. And it also brings in all the gun control type arguments that may slip in both politically or realistically. Let me just list it all here to show what I mean:

Omar Mateen’s cowardly act was indeed terrorism. There is lots of discussion about this, but plain and simple, his act was an act of terrorism. Regardless of Manteen’s reasoning, the act itself causes terror and is terrorism.

It is also Radical Islamic Terrorism. I know lots of people are afraid to use this type of phrasing. I am not. Truth is truth.

Omar Mateen was heard yelling “Allahu Akbar”, which is usually translated as “God Is Great” and is what terrorist groups like ISIS ask of their “followers” to yell before their terrorist attacks. He also called 911 and a local news station and claimed his actions were indeed linked to Islamic Extremist type issues. So there is no getting around it. And there are other reasons to see him as a terrorist and this a terrorist attack.

After the 9/11 attacks, while Omar was still in High School, his class mates say he made  jokes about the attack, mimicking a plane crashing into the Towers, mocking those who died. He also claimed he was related to Osama bin Laden . Some thought he was just trying to get attention, I would agree. Most crazies with guns are doing just that, trying to get attention. And terrorist, definitely are trying to get attention.

Omar finally did get attention… from the FBI. In May of 2013, the FBI investigated Mateen because of some curious things he had been saying at his job as a security officer.  Mateen had told his coworkers that his family was linked to al-Qaeda and that he had joined Hezbollah. The FBI interviewed Mateen twice after opening an investigation. In these interviews, Mateen admitted to making the statements but “explained that he said them in anger because his co-workers were teasing him.”  Seems Omar hadn’t grown up much since high school. The investigation was closed after 10 months, but Omar would once again come under FBI investigation. In July of 2014, Mateen  was linked to Moner Mohammad Abu Salha, an American who had traveled to Syria and committed a suicide bombing  in late May 2014. The 2 were said to have attended the same mosque. Unfortunately Manteen fell off the FBI’s radar and was left unchecked as he planned for his act of terrorism.

I don’t want to jump to far off the crazy aspect into the terrorism aspect. I myself find anyone who would commit an act of mass murder ending in suicide for an ideology so twisted definitely crazy. But Mateen was all over the place with his worship and beliefs. He often spoke of different opposing groups (such as ISIS and al-Qaeda) as if he was part of both. This seems to be some of the reason why the FBI did not take him seriously, he’s just crazy. Let’s hope LE sees how wrong this way of going about it is. In fact, Manteen showing irrational groupings of his ideology should have shown through as even more reason to suspect he might act on his beliefs. In other words the fact that he is crazy is not a reason to doubt their radicalization, crazy should be a “red flag” not an exempt from terrorist actions. Especially when you add the other “red flags” up. We’ll get to all the other “red flags” but first I’d like to delve a little deeper into Mateen’s mixed-up ideology.

To do this we need to look at Mateen’s father. It is known that his father is a al-Qaeda supporter/sympathiser. The family is from Afghanistan. So Mateen’s early praise for al-Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks or his stories of being related to Osama bin Laden would make sense coming from a younger Mateen influenced by his father. I should point out that the father had stories of his own back then, claiming he would return to Afghanistan to be its leader in the end. Yes, I bet father Mateen filled son Mateen’s head with all sorts of fucked up shit. More on that in a second.

Given time and the change of things in the terrorist world, a few years later, Mateen still angry (we’ll get to the anger part) and crazy, sees the propaganda that ISIS has been able to create out there, is fully sucked in with thanks to the internet (fucking internet). So the confusion of who Mateen was committing jihad for is pointless, because his crazy ass was affected by it all… and much more. Besides parts of al-Qaeda would eventually become ISIS… so again pointless confusion.

The thing most said about Mateen was that he was angry and full of hate. This could come from his beliefs on how his father’s home country has been affected over the years. But it obviously goes deeper. His ex-wife said he was abusive and had to flee for her life from the relationship. People who have worked with Mateen have claimed his anger and hatred was more of a jealously type thing or a “they think they are better than me” reasoning. One such co-worker eventually quit due to the stress of working with someone with such obvious issues.

It’s too bad that the ex-wife did not take legal action against Mateen’s abuse… maybe it would have stopped the sale of a firearm to him. It’s also too bad the place where Mateen had worked hadn’t taken his co-workers complaints more seriously, maybe it would have triggered some kind of action earlier on.

Lots of missed opportunities here. Right up to Mateen being refused sales of body armor. It was reported, but since he did not purchase the armor, there was no way of knowing who the strange guy was that tried to buy it. And the report went nowhere. But from the early reports from high school, to the FBI interviews, right up to the attempt to purchase body armor, the biggest missed opportunity was from Mateen’s new wife. She knew he was heading towards radicalization. She knew he planned attacks. She had driven him to check out The Pulse nightclub. The night of the massacre she had an idea of what he might do. But she never spoke up or called authorities. I understand it might be difficult for families to turn in family members for suspicious activities or extreme views. It could be making the situation worse. In fact most of these terrorist acts were done by people who were once looked at by authorities for extremist ideas and possible radicalization. What I mean by that is that once someone is looked into by authorities, it helps to cement radicalization. In other words, being looked at suspiciously cause some people to say fuck it, I might as well be doing what they suspect me of doing. I know that is a very simple way of looking at a very complicated subject, but I hope the all government authorities see this and realize the fact they are looking into someone means they should never stop looking at them. You have to check back up on them, because just the fact you looked into them could be thing that kicks them over the edge.

Regardless of all that, in my opinion, Mateen’s wife knew what would inevitably happen. She should have spoken up and I hope law enforcement takes a good look at what should be done about her part in all of it as well as not reporting what she knew was gonna happen. Again my opinion.

So there is already so much going on here but we haven’t even scratched the surface. We have radical terrorism, anger issues, spousal abuse, mental instability, the want or need for attention, and all of it missed or at least not understood in time to stop what happened Sunday, June 12, 2016. We have only scratched the surface because we haven’t even began to talk about the Hate Crime aspect to it all.

Just as you can not say this was not an act of radical terrorism, you can not ignore that it was a Hate Crime. It was equally both. And just as I believe Mateen’s father was the main source of Mateen’s early extreme ideas (most likely they were encouraged by the fathers beliefs and further influenced by the internet and other Radical Islamic propaganda) it’s easy to see that the dick head daddy (the guy is such an evil asshole in my book) also forced anti-homosexuality beliefs on his son. Of course Islamic religion is really no different from most religions when it comes to the thoughts on homosexuality, but Mateen’s father is one of those still on the extreme side of religious thoughts on it. Which means it is not tolerated in any way.

So the fact that the attack was on a gay night club fits right into the extreme religious views by the father passed on to his son. But we all know it goes deeper than that. There are reports of Mateen frequenting The Pulse and maybe other gay clubs. Some say they communicated with Mateen on social media and gay dating sites and were under the impression that Mateen was gay and looking to date other gay males.

This complicates it even further, because this could mean that Matten was suffering from some sort of self hate or confusion about his sexual identity. This is also somewhat confirmed by his ex-wife and others who knew him and said they had wondered if he was gay. If he was, his growing religious radicalization and his father’s prehistoric ideas of how things should be would have been a very conflicting in his already deteriorating mental state.

And we can’t say for sure it wasn’t racially motivated in some way as well. It was latin Night at the club after all. And although some of the survivors of the mass shooting have said Mateen purposely announced his actions was not against “black” people, there seems to be some racist thoughts involved in the mind of this mad man.

In fact early reports from those he worked with said Mateen constantly said racist and  sexist things. Mateen seemed to think others thought “they were better than him”. This is not much different from those who commit mass murder in schools or work places. They fell mistreated or belittled by those around them.

Last and probably least is the fact no one seemed to point out. Mateen was a security guard who really wanted to be a cop. Anyone who has had to deal with a security guard who for some reason (usually good reasons) they could not become a cop and are now in a place to force some authority, knows they probably shouldn’t have guns. In fact lots of serial killers wanted to be cops and hung out with cops and try to be in on their own investigations. It’s just another “red flag” and another part of what I believe be the “perfect storm” of a mass murderer.

As time passes and other crazies with guns disrupt our lives and destroy the lives of those in their path, I hope we don’t forget what happened in Orlando. All the talking points are there. All the different ways these things happen, happens all at once and we need to start having the discussions that are gonna be hard to have. But we have to have them. I support the second amendment as I do all our rights. But we have to keep guns from crazy people. But someone who makes fun of 9/11, claims to be related to Osama bin Laden, has connections to known terrorist, is looked at not once, but twice by the FBI or Homeland Security, abuses their wife, is socially awkward and abusive to where others are afraid to work with them, buys large amounts of ammunition and try to buy body armor… well… they are crazy, and as we have been shown, they should NEVER have a gun.

Before We Go On

This blog is very organic… I blog about what ever is on my mind (that is not always easy to decipher since so much is on my mind lately), what ever is going on in my life, my blogs, and the world in which we all live. It can jump around or get very fixated. It can even go silent when I come to an empty page and decide once again not to write anything. That doesn’t mean I don’t come to it, don’t deal with emails and private messages about it, or not chase the internet on subjects I should be writing about. It’s just when I come to the actual part of putting it all into words lately, I’m already exhausted and just can’t bring myself to separate my thoughts on one idea long enough to type them down.

This has happened before… so much going on around me that I just need a break from the blog… maybe even the internet… the thing is this time I had a break, my haunt season break, I should be ready to go and I am… but there is just so much going on and I have so many different ideas about what I need to blog about (a big part of me feels this blog is slowly becoming another “Red & Black” Prophet Blog, and I have mixed feelings about that. I stopped that blog with good reasons, and going back to it may not even be possible after the places we have gone since then) and posts are getting left in the “Post Graveyard” or worse yet, left in my head to be forgotten or resurfaced depending on this organic blog.

This blog centers around 3 things most of the time… my personal life and it’s experiences, the internet and how it affects that personal life (both of these deal with the world around us, such as the Arts, Politics, and Religion and how they affect the personal and internet life and how the personal and internet life affect them), and third the crazies I have encountered while blogging about the first 2. I try to stay balanced, but sometimes we get stuck. Which is ok, but I don’t like getting stuck on nothing, and that is where I am.

It’s not hard to understand why I’m stuck. I just spent a lot of time away from the blog. And as most of you know I spent most of my free time over the last few months with one of the top haunts in the world: FRIGHT DOME! (shameless plug, but it’s true) I had totally planned on blogging about this season a little more and not staying away for so long. And this season was full of ups and downs that would have been great to blog about and many posts were in my head ready to write down. But whenever I decide to start a personal blog I have to think about that third thing I mentioned above. The crazies I have blogged about like to use all that personal stuff to whatever craziness they can come up with in their crazy heads. Most of you will remember the private messages between Kate and Dorothy that I posted about a year ago (remember the super bowl party?), but there was much more to that conversation. At one point Dorothy writes about how she looks at all the Facebook’s of people connected to zero (me), mostly haunt people or people into haunts. She calls them devil worshipers and even says something about someone’s wife… something about their looks, as in they were not pretty. Shallow stuff we come to know from the Dorothy team, but we also know these nuts are dangerous with the things they say, so after seeing first hand how Dorothy looks into people around me, and not knowing how many crazy people she talks to, nor how many of these crazies and the other crazies we know are discussing my personal information and people who may or may not know me, I have to pause and think real hard if I even want to make a post discussing friends, family, and personal experiences.

So yes, I wanted to blog about the things that happened this season. I broke my foot, the cast of Big Brother came through, the 13th season had so much triumph and turbulence, I was excited about telling some of the stories. But each time I’d think about Dorothy and that ever-growing nut gallery and wonder if I should put so much personal stuff out there, I mean there’s already enough and there’s always some new nut and I’m bound to write something they won’t like and, well as much as I want to write about my haunt season, I just keep deciding to put each post off till it’s already the middle of November and I really should just move on.

Some may say, hey that’s not fair, you don’t mind posting about these crazy people, but won’t put your own personal stories up. Good argument if it were true. But it’s not. I post all sorts of personal posts. I’m not afraid for people to know my stuff, it’s just the people around me who have no idea what is going on in this blog or who these crazies even are that I second guess my posts for. And plus like I’ve said before, the stuff I post about is usually already out there or what people have been putting out there for years. But some people will never see it that way and therefore I post less and less personal stuff. So I guess no haunt stories. Maybe another time.

Though I have to say this about the haunts I have worked for, and this goes out to Dorothy, Cristin, and anyone else who has a misconception of people who work at haunts. Yes, most are into Halloween and/or horror movies, that’s a given. But you might want to think twice before you judge them. Half of them are newly highschool graduates starting college or heading out into the world for the first time, and the haunt is their first job experience. There are also quite a bit of school teachers and veterans. People living with disabilities and those who have survived cancer, yea I have worked with a lot of cancer survivors over the years, whose stories of survival would humble most reading here (crazies with the victim psychosis not included). I’ve been doing Fright Dome since 2007 and I have had the pleasure to work with some truly amazing people, so while I am protective of not mentioning it at all so the likes of Dot and Nan Nan don’t do their evil on good people, I have to point out that they are good people, whose shoes you have not walked in. (SHOES! Dropping, walking, the shoes are there, red ones and all!)

Another catch 22… or contradicting riddle. Don’t want to talk about my personal life as to not give the crazies things to distort and yet the need to correct any distortions. Such is life, both the real one and the internet one.

Before we leave the subject of the haunt, I need to post a couple of pictures of my new characters this season:

patient zero2b Patient Zero

zero da klown1 Zero Da Klown

Some more of that #WorldsCollide with zero’s world making its way further into the haunt world… but here is where we must leave it for now… the haunt is over.

Fine, easy enough, skip all of that. There was plenty of things going on in the world around us that I had no problem coming up with what to blog about. And after the tragic events in Paris on Friday the 13th my television has been on the news night and day and there has been so many things to blog about such as terrorism in general and how it is affecting us. When does crazy become evil? Will our government lost in politics and the upcoming presidential election lead us into the eye of that craziness and  a “Holy War”? Are we now making decisions out of fear? Are refugees and others coming into our country dangerous? Should there be a coalition with Russia? Do we need troops on the ground? Should POTUS just say the words “Islamic Extremist”? When did The President Of The United States become POTUS?”

Discussion is good and we do need it. But real change in all these maters are no where in sight. Politics, Religion and the quest for land and power is a greedy trip that is way too imbedded into what we are. All we can really do is say thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and hope someday it wont be like this. And I have that hope. But I don’t see that journey all sunny days and lemon aide.

So blogging about it does bring me down a little I guess, and I tend to back out of such posts. After all I don’t have the answers needed to such topics.

Still as I said, discussion is needed and I’m sure there will be much more discussed here, on this blog, on all of this. After all we are going into a presidential election year.

Before we move on there is one part of the sad world of current events that I don’t want to skip over and loose it forever.

That is the subject of Anonymous getting involved with ISIL, or if your politics prefer ISIS:

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2015/11/16/anonymous-declares-war-on-isis-vows-cyberattacks.html

http://nypost.com/2015/11/16/anonymous-declares-war-on-isis/

When I first saw this on the news I went searching the web.

I was really wanting to quickly post about it. I have a tendency to let Anonymous related posts get unfinished. This is mainly because I just don’t know what they do half the time. I’ve said before, I want to believe in them, that what they do helps, but I can’t help but wonder, do they make things better or worse?

And before I could post about them getting involved, that question was again raised in things that followed.

First Anonymous seemed to live up to their word helping by exposing and having deleted, ISIL/ISIS Twitter accounts:

http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/260418-anonymous-claims-it-has-elimiated-5500-isis-twitter-accounts

That’s good, but then this happened:

http://www.albawabaeg.com/69268

http://twitchy.com/2015/11/21/anonymous-warns-that-isis-is-planning-attacks-practically-worldwide-sunday/

It seems Anonymous has discovered where ISIL/ISIS will attack next and reported it to the worlds leaders and governments, but don’t feel, they (leaders and governments) are doing anything about it so, they (Anonymous) had to make these targets known to the world via the internet.

That day is today, Sunday, November 22, 2015, and they put up quite a bit of targets.

Before we can even discus if this is the right thing to do or if it helps spread more fear. Before we can ask what our leaders and governments should be doing to check on these and other recently posted fear propaganda declaring more attacks are coming. You get this:

anonymous twitter

You might have seen this in the above posts… yep, Anonymous denies the earlier Anonymous tweets. That’s the problem when any one in a Guy Fawkes mask can be Anonymous, and I believe I have said this before.

So do they hurt or help? Whoa, how did I get here? Not where I was heading and I probably shouldn’t be poking at the vast Anonymous army of delinquents right now. But before I can even finish any thoughts on Anonymous’ affect in the fight against ISIL/ISIS something new comes into the picture:

GSG tweet

Wait, who is Ghost Security Group?

Well, I went searching/chasing the internet last night and today and it seems there is a new group in town:

http://www.inquisitr.com/2575774/anonymous-upstaged-by-ghost-security-group-in-cyber-war-against-isis/

http://money.cnn.com/2015/11/20/technology/isis-ghost-security-group/index.html

Wow, Anonymous Vs. Ghost Security Group… sounds like a long forgotten post of mine called Anonymous Vs. The Illuminati. This was after the Malaysian Airlines MH370 crash/disappearance and I had come across this on YouTube:

Here’s some other links from that lost post:

http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/anonymous-rothschilds-malaysian-airlines-mh370-connection/90611

https://www.hackread.com/anonymous-video-malaysian-airliner-mh-370/

http://illuminatiwatcher.com/malaysia-airlines-flight-mh17-conspiracy-theories/

That last one is a doozy!

I never finished the post, because as usual, I didn’t see anything come of what Anonymous was proposing. Still asking, do they help or hurt?

But my questions about groups like The Illuminati, Anonymous, CICADA 3310, and now a new one for me, Ghost Security Group are matched with my hopes one of them is the super hero they claim to be… man, we could use a super hero right now. Plenty of people ready to step up and try to be the villains, we know that.

I will be keeping my eye on this Ghost Security Group, a smaller Anonymous, with more purpose than CICADA, and not fake like The Illuminati… yes, I’m intrigued once again.

Well, we can check off

#2016PresidentialElectionCoverageAndOtherPoliticalStuffThatNeedsToBeDiscussed

as well.

That’s both this years hashtags in one post. Good, gotta get them in there as much as possible, the year is almost over and other hashtags await.

And that’s where we will leave the Politics and Religion darkening the world as we speak. Too much conflicting ideas there, all waiting to contradict. Some of you know there are C words I have a problem with… and some I don’t…

Which brings us back to that third thing… the crazies… (were you thinking of another c word?) Yes, if I am to escape the craziness of the world for the moment, what better place than the crazies that  keep me from more personal posts? They are still out there, and a few new ones have crept into the comments and emails lately. I’ve stayed away long enough, no?

Let’s get started!

What’s Going On In The World Today?

Three weeks ago I was listening to D12 World and this song came on. I started to think about everything that was going on in our world and decided to write a post about a few things.

Ferguson would have been the main subject I’m sure… but it also would have dealt with ISIS and what’s going on in Syria… as well as what’s going on (and has been for years) in Israel and Palatine. And would have ended on the Russia and Ukraine conflict.

I had the outline in my head but never got started on the post… it seemed like too much to deal with at the time. Not much has changed in 3 weeks and it still seems like too much to deal with at this time.

Plus… my opinions on the middle east are not different from most people , I’m sure. And those whose opinions differ are only because they have a side in it for some reason.

ISIS and terrorist groups or wanna be states are a danger to EVERYONE in the world. Islam is not the enemy, anymore than Christianity or any other religion that thinks their God is the TRUE God. But ALL of the worlds religions will have to deal with that LIE long before anything in Middle East will get better…

The Middle East has been the battle ground for all three major religions for a long time… I mean of course… Judaism, Christianity, and Islamic faiths. The wars have been never ending countless generations. Which sucks for those who live in the Middle East. All three religions think  their book is word of our creator. Since all three religions are based on each other and their stories are borrowed from much older civilizations it’s easy for people to get lost in the true teachings at the heart of each religion, which are all the same… instead confusion and chaos and Religious Wars in the Middle East for hundreds of years.

Add to that how many within their own religions interpret their stories differently… more craziness. And this craziness is world-wide!

Of course Politics has it’s part in it all as well. In fact Politics and Religion are a much closer entity then most want to admit, right?

But what point is it to have one more blogger weigh in on something so imbedded in our lives that the obvious answers are impossible for us to deal with.

Do you need me to say Israel and Palestine are stuck in a deadly back-n-forth where neither side is right and outside influences are using the lives of innocent people for their politics and religion? Hundreds of years stacked up on any type of reasoning that any one blogger could attempt.

Though I do want to say before I leave the subject that Russia needs to get it together. You can be a big influence in where this world goes. Why take steps backwards after so much progress? Like my questions mater… I know… it’s why I never did the post.

But then the other day a reader wrote me that they had been reading my blog lately to see if I would post about what’s been going on in Ferguson. I told them I had planned on it, but as I just explained above it didn’t happen.

Still… it was nice to know that some want to read my opinions on something more than Dorothy and other psychotic hypo-crites. (that’s totally a joke, I know lots of the readers would love for me to blog about anything other than the erratic babblings of crazy internet trolls disguised as victims, and I know that some of you appreciate my opinions as I have come to appreciate a lot of yours, but, although it’s just a joke, I still get highest readings when I write about one of the LISK gang, so funny, but true)

And I do feel the need to write about Ferguson and all that goes with it. So a post has been started and should be up soon (don’t quote me on that, as soon as it is finished is more accurate, cause it may take a few days).

There’s a lot going on out there… but it’s not as complicated as we tend to make it… yet it is very complicated because of the way we’ve made it.
