The biggest hot button one can push in American politics is guns. An item invented many years ago by the Chinese by accident. They were trying to invent a potion for the fountain of youth and invented gunpowder. Realized they could use it to shoot projectiles through bamboo shoots. Immediately, they started producing these as means for warfare. Means to end the life of another human being for the sake of power, greed, and ideology. Seems guns are still doing their job.
The one thing almost everyone has in common at one time or another is regret. The feeling of disappointment over a missed opportunity or possibly something else. Regret is one of our core components of emotions and is not a flaw. We need this emotion for more than you realize. Thing is, it is how … Continue reading Living with Regrets
I awoke and performed my normal routine of getting ready for work. This consists of showering, coffee, and making sure I have my work polo on for virtual meetings. We are living in 2023. The world is becoming virtual, unfortunately, as it needs to. My dog and I take to the outside world for fresh … Continue reading One More Day Until Friday…
Most Americans live the same song and dance week in and week out. If you think about it on a global scale, we all do as a human race. There are the select few that are inclusive to this ritualistic act, which leaves the rest of the 99% of us in the same boat. I … Continue reading Monday Mantra: Working for the 1%?
Fuck all the noise about amendments and right to bear arms. There is a difference between owning a handgun, shotgun, or hunting rifle. A semi-automatic or fully automatic long rifle with a capacity to carry 15 or more rounds is not for sport or self-defense. It is a tool solely intended to end human life. This WAS REGULATED until 2004. Now look at where we are. The whole "good guy/bad guy with a gun" argument is absolutely retarded. Individuals with no criminal record or signs of violence can obtain a long rifle equipped to carry out mass carnage. All it takes is an emotional trigger or life altering emotional situation to send this seemingly docile person into a mental state to carry out mass carnage. By the way, the most recent Allen Mall Shooting was not stopped by a citizen carrying a weapon, those people ran. Why? Because a handgun against a long rifle with a large magazine is absurd. Except for the highly trained Allen police officer.
Our lives begin with this aura of meaning that is pressed upon us by an entity that is not real. One that presses upon us the importance of statures and delusions which we must accomplish to have meaning. We all crave that answer, “Why are we here?”. Most search all their lives in vain looking for that one answer. Those that feel happiness is an ideology that is force-fed to us through society. Society dictates what and how we feel, meanwhile decade by decade, increasing the stressors in which we live. The insurmountable objectives we must accomplish.
People are more and more having this sense from birth that they are owed something. This mindset is something I am unable to comprehend. If anyone is entitled to anything, it is those who were silenced. This is easy to distinguish, anyone other than a white male. Thing is, you still have to build your ship and make it strong. Making alterations along the way to allow it to sail through obstacles and survive the overall reality of life. When it sinks, you start over with in depth knowledge how to prevent that from happening again. Yet some cannot grasp the errors and correct them.
You open a web browser with news, you see it. Thumb through media channels and you read it. What are we doing? What are we accomplishing? For centuries we have murdered each other and continue down this path. We take lives over ideology, emotions, mental illness, and any other reason we contrive. The favorite medium is the gun.
How many times can someone break the law and get away with it? This whole Trump deal is ridiculous. The guy is crying about things that he tried to do to others and now is happening to him. He who cries the loudest and repeats the same thing is usually the one guilty of it. This has been true since the dawn of man. Anyone who sits in the chair of the most powerful nation of the world and spends more time golfing and calling people stupid, idiots, and losers just needs to go away. Period. His con is up.
In our hands lies a powerful weapon. One that we use against ourselves daily, over and over again. Tearing away at our identities, and critical thinking abilities, paving a highway to our own demise. We are our own worst enemy and we are armed with harming ourselves, as well as others (i.e. President of the United States coaxing uninformed, irrational citizens to storm a government building and cause chaos all in Tweets).
