UPDATE - Hey Everyone I'm Back...

...not that I totally left or anything but for the past few weeks I've been without a laptop and a computer. Both these special machines in my life decided to take a dump on me at the same time. Well, that's how it goes, when it rains it pours and such is life. The good thing is these moments can turn you into a sharp problem solver and even though I'm behind, I'm on the right track.

Coming up next ...

Yes, I will be writing about the horrible excuse of a documentary - Making a Murderer.

I will also be finishing up my project on Feminism.

As for the debates and the upcoming election... well, I'm actually trying to ignore it for now. Things will get heated up in the coming months. There's still plenty of time folks, so everyone just needs to relax!

See you soon!

FLASHBACK - Alleged rape by Bill Clinton

I'm Late But Happy New Year!

The New Year has passed and I honestly didn't pay much attention. The older I get, the less important any of these holidays seem to me. Years ago, I would have been out all night partying away at a club where I was a regular fixture. These days, I stay home with my little girl. Zero complaints. It's just interesting how life changes you and your priorities. Most of the changes have been for the better. Then there are the things I need to work at changing...

The New Year often encourages people to make changes like break bad habits, eating better, or exercising more consistently. New goals are made or renewed. For me, I will keep my goals close to my chest - I want them to be private for now.

Here's to hoping you all have had a great New Year and blessings to you and your family during the year again!

Lefty Progressives Making Things Simple - Guns, Terrorists, and Victims

The recent tragic terror attack in San Bernardino has sparked intense conversation on the internet. Leave it to our lefty, progressive pals to lecture us on the dangers of "assault weapons" (it's rather agonizing they still don't realize ALL guns are assault weapons), and how if only we could make more laws, shootings would no longer occur. They seem to base this belief on magic.

Take this recent exchange on Facebook, where one man informs us of such an easy, simple way to stop all gun violence:


Perhaps it's their insecurity in the world that makes these sort of people lash out at things like facts and reason.

In a horrific example of journalism, Linda Stasi for the New York Daily News decided to give the terrorists a pass on killing one of their victims, Nicholas Thalasinos, whom she describes as an equal bigot deserving his death. She makes this point very clear when she states at the beginning of the article there were "13 innocent victims," as opposed to the actual number of 14.

She compares the men, leaving the reader to believe there is almost no difference between them, except for the fact that one is dead due to the other's actions.
What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.

Yes, apparently Stasi views bigotry as being equivalent to that of being a terrorist. Still, she only makes this conclusion based on some posts this man made on Facebook. Even worse, she doesn't provide any screencaps showing these supposed rants filled with bigotry so, I guess we are just supposed to take her word for it. She continues:
Thalasinos was an anti-government, anti-Islam, pro-NRA, rabidly anti-Planned Parenthood kinda guy, who posted that it would be “Freaking Awesome” if hateful Ann Coulter was named head of Homeland Security. He asked, “IS 1. EVERY POLITICIAN IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR? 2. EVERY POLITICIAN IS A MORON? 3. EVERY POLITICIAN IS RACIST AGAINST JEWS?” He also posted screeds like, “You can stick your Muslim Million Man march up your asses,” and how “Hashem” should blow up Iran.

So dedicated to ad hominem attacks, Stasi actually worded this in such a way that would lead the reader to believe it was Thalasinos who called Ann Coulter "hateful." Exactly who is this Stasi to determine who is hateful and who is not? Did she join some moral-brigade I am unaware of? How exactly does claiming Coulter to be hateful not make her a bigot? Last I checked, being a bigot simply means being intolerant of another person's views.
big·otˈbiɡət/
noun
a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.

The entire article is merely just a confirmation that in the minds of extreme lefties, some people are more equal than others. If you chose to kill someone, just make sure it's one of those right-wingers because they sort of deserve it, right? Don't blame the radical and his fanatical religion that drives him to commit a terrorist act, just blame the victim.

The simplistic and irrational thinking is never in short supply on the far-left.

Though California has strict gun-laws, this terrorist attack still managed to occur. Even IF one of the victims was indeed a bigot, he most certainly was not the one who carried out this murderous deed, and there is no comparing a rant on Facebook with the work of a murdering terrorist. Thalasinos was an innocent victim who did not commit any crime, despite what Stasi would like to believe. Having a different opinion that isn't "politically correct" is not reflective of someone worthy of death. Perhaps Stasi should worry about her own bigotry, or at least have a better command of the English language.

The truth is in the US, there is no clear pattern of gun laws automatically leading to less gun crimes. This also means that less gun laws do not mean more or even less crime either. The numbers can actually be skewed in such a way that either side can make arguments depending on where they fall on the ideological spectrum. Many of these statistics involve suicide, which is technically a crime but only the person pulling the trigger is the victim.

I wish I could tell you it's more clear-cut but, our country is quite unique since we cover not only a large amount of land but as you travel across this country you will find many different types of mindsets. A small town in the South will be vastly different from a major metropolitan city in the North. There are many anomalies that both sides will hold up as an example. For example, DC has many strong gun control laws, yet it also has one of the highest markings for gun violence. On the other hand, places like NY and NJ also have many gun laws and their gun crime rates have indeed fallen. Yet, no one can claim that gun laws actually equal lower crime rates.

I say it's immoral to tell a citizen they are not allowed to protect themselves. As uncomfortable as it may be, the police are not magicians who float through the air or pop into existence the way Endora did on an episode of Bewitched. Calling the police takes time and waiting for them takes even more time and sometimes those precious minutes are not enough. A person must have the ability to protect themselves in these horrifying experiences. What is needed is education about firearms - how they work, how to use them, and when not to use them. Fear is always combated through knowledge.

Switzerland is a country where gun ownership is high and shootings are quite low. The reason is due to their education. They demand that citizens are educated in how to handle a gun.

Training should be mandatory. Our government will never realistically succeed in taking away guns from our citizens but it can succeed in implementing courses that keep our citizens aware of firearms and how to accurately use them. Rather than stirring the pot by talking about the evils of guns and blaming the victims, we need to get behind more rational ideas that can ultimately unite people on both sides of the aisle.
