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.
And It Rains…
Another rainy day in North Texas. Looking out my window from my desk, I see the water hitting the pavement and wonder if the ground beneath it thirsts for water. Most will protect themselves from an element such as rain. A life-giving source that most take for granted. They prefer to use water to keep their lawns visually attractive to the human eye, yet unhealthy to the environment that surrounds them. Loads of transplants from western states come from drought-riddled areas, just to do the same thing to another region. Just so happens that I am in one of those areas. Having the inability to fathom what it is like to not care about anything but oneself, they come in droves. Like cattle looking for fresh grass. Hours spent thinking about it and accepting what is. Mother Nature is a powerful force. One that needs to be respected and cherished. I give thanks for all She provides. As if I do not, her offspring Karma will come around to see me. Sitting in the rain is the best form of relaxation and letting the water renourish the soul. I believe Father and Mother will always provide for those who receive in good heart and respect ALL accordingly.
Family, Friends, and Crawdads That Sing.
We are all born the same. From a mother’s womb, ignorant to the world, and naturally bonded by nature to the one who carried us. Some get raised by that person, some do not. That is nothing new to humans. Since the dawn of humans, there has been tragedy and surrogate mothers and even fathers. This phenomenon even exists in the animal kingdom.
Santa Claus, Tooth Fairy, Miracles, and God
As a child, all of us believed in the supernatural. Heck, we believed in the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny, and Santa Claus. We get older and critical thinking takes over and logic kicks in. Well, for some of us. Millions, if not billions, of us, believe in a Creator. Some more than one, others … Continue reading Santa Claus, Tooth Fairy, Miracles, and God
