Tuesday Tidbits: Random Musings

I had a few thoughts rattling around and decided to “put them to paper,” more or less!

😎

* Co-dependent enablers aren’t part of the solution. They represent once facet of a large problem, and should be considered just as culpable in the same wrongdoings of those whom they enable.

* Online social groups have their pros and cons. One of the biggest issues surrounding them are the number of phony accounts and profiles on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WordPress, or any and every online game out there. Knowing how to identify those fake profiles is a learned skill, much like riding a bicycle, throwing darts, or playing Texas Hold ‘Em.

* I don’t have fake tits, fake hair, a fake ass, or a fake face. I refuse to pay for fake stats and don’t need fake friends. I have no ulterior motives: what you see and read is what you get, and it is honest. I have nothing to prove to anyone except myself.

* If I have something to say to you, you can guarantee that I will say it directly to you. I don’t need to bring an audience to a private, personal conversation.

Finally, a poll:

That’s it for now – time for a bit of gaming!

Truth

Bombs In Boston…

As I type this, the “breaking news” is splashing across the television screen…two bombs have exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Footage shows athletes running and then you see smoke billowing from the left side of the screen and some of the runners collapse. From the camera’s perspective, you see the smoke from the second explosion a little ways down the street from the first, on the same side of the street. Two people were confirmed dead at that time, and bits and pieces of the reports of the blasts were beginning to scroll across the bottom of the screen. Some mentioned a fire at the JFK Library, which is located a few miles away from where the bombs were detonated. A witness said that he “saw a garbage can explode.” Also, some reports were stating that officials weren’t certain if these were “acts of domestic or foreign terrorism.” To me, it has all of the earmarks of a domestic attack – the supremacist fuck in Spokane, Washington, was going to set off a bomb at a parade honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a couple of years ago – this attack is too similar to the other which, fortunately, was caught in time. The sick bastard had loaded a backpack with ball-bearings and other metallic objects in order to do a lot of damage to innocent people, just like what happened today. Crazy, crazy shit…so much seems to be going on when it comes to these mindless, violent acts which are occurring on a daily basis as of late.

Some dude shot himself at an NRA-sponsored NASCAR racing event – how fitting! I just SMDH at that…it’s fucking karma from my viewpoint.

A number of white children have killed – or been killed – by senseless, preventable incidents involving morons with guns, but nobody is screeching about “white-on-white” violence and holding all whites responsible for every mass shooting, meth-lab explosion, DUII incident, or act of paedophilia or bestiality…again, it all boils down to karma. Shit like this happens all the time, and it has been happening in this country (and many others) for centuries – blaming non-white people for those acts is ridiculous, especially in those countries which are exclusively white – yes, they exist, and they aren’t violence-free utopias! People seriously need to get over themselves. Man is a violent beast and we do vicious things to each other, then pathetically attempt to justify those sick, reprehensible acts. We aren’t civil, yet pretend to be so! Ye gawds…

Now it seems that “a man of Arabian descent,” who was seen “running from the scene of the bombing with burns,” is being questioned in hospital. Interesting, but not surprising, that he was targeted for questioning. It’s exactly what happens to Black people when we go to any store with white proprietors: we are stalked, harassed, and questioned as if we’re born criminals, while whites with sticky fingers walk free. Shades of Oklahoma City, no? Disgusting racial profiling…Timothy McVeigh wasn’t automatically questioned outright! It will be interesting to see who claims responsibility for this, if anyone. * SIGH *

I’m waiting for the reports to be shown on the international news-sites that I read – the local and national ‘rags’ are just too predictable, anymore…

One final interesting note; today is a state holiday in Massachusetts: it is Patriots Day, celebrating and commemorating the first battles of the AmeriKKKan Revolution in 1775. I smell Teabaggers and the stench of so-called ‘patriotism,’ combined with the thinly-veiled racism of those who foment sedition and secession via sub rosa rhetoric and propaganda.

Let’s see what develops…
