A Different Kind of Blog

news and things sacred and irreverent put together by opinionated people.

The reason why I hardly read the news…

...OR NOT.

Example: Here is the headlining news for today, (a straight cut-and-paste) from one of the top internet search engine news sites:

Saturday, March 24, 2012

  • Slain teen’s friends say he never picked a fight
  • Tsunami-tossed boat spotted off western Canada
  • Bales charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder
  • Woman to wed slain French soldier posthumously
  • 6 kids, 2 adults killed in West Virginia house fire
  • Deadly clashes in Egypt after soccer club banned
  • ‘Borat’ anthem at sports event angers Kazakhstan
  • Roadside bombing kills 5 in Afghanistan
  • Space junk forces astronauts to take shelter

Do you see anything positive up there? Something that will start your day off with a smile? Okay, maybe the Borat article made me snicker somewhat. but I can say that all of the above news were all on the negative side and called forth the stress hormones to come to the harm of the body, the spirit, and the mind. Stress= dis-ease.

There are other sources where you can educate yourself on current events (important for social interaction, real and/or virtual, and if you like to play Jeopardy!). Slim pickins, however. Most news sources cater to what will sell off the counter — Sensationalized crime stories, sports, and celebrity gossip.Violence and how the super rich live dictate what news publishers put out for us to read. So this morning, I will share some good news with you. Here are some, have a good day!

And now for some funny political satire of the Republican kind…oh wait — this is really happening!

Posted by dorian on January 3, 2012

“Rick Santorum’s socially conservative brand has helped him break through with a last-minute surge in Iowa. But his agenda isn’t restricted to reimposing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ outlawing gay marriage nationwide, or promoting prayer in public schools. Santorum also wants to use the federal tax incentives to promote traditional marriage and families…”

Women from Kansas prepare to have to buy Abortion Insurance..just incase you get raped.

Posted by Enkill_Eridos on May 31, 2011

This post is more of the hypocracy coming from the lawmakers of America. More specifically the Representative from Kansas..In Kansas even if you are paying private insurance it is against the law for your insurance company to pay for an abortion. They want you to spend more money just in case you get raped. This guy Paul Degraff compared this policy to a spare tire…

It is Tuesday..and already a big horrible political climate.

Posted by Enkill_Eridos on January 11, 2011

]The more I watch the news the more I think our government and society are going down the toliet.

First notable news of the week.

Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay is convicted of money laundering, and conspiracy of illegally influencing Texas elections. That is the basic summary of the story. Mr. DeLay has of course said these allegations are false and he is being targeted by his political opponents. Which is plausible, but there is some preferential treatment here too I think. He gets sentenced, yet he has a $10,000 bail, which was paid. Now in 6 months, if his appeal doesn’t go through, he goes to prison. Of course, I think that if he never held the second highest position in the US government, he would probably have had to wait that 6 months in a prison like everyone else would have to. Three years is a slap on the wrist, particularly for an allegation this serious. All together he was facing a life sentence but that was reduced to three years and ten years probation. This effectively destroys his political career whether he is found not guilty during his appeal or not. The story was that he was convicted “in the most Democratic county in the most Republican state.” I feel that that sentence damages the word “democratic” because the word democratic is also used to describe the type of government we have and they are using it as if it’s a negative.

The second piece of news…A mentally unstable guy named Jared in Arizona killed some students, a teacher, a 9-year old girl, a judge, then a Congresswoman. You know what is blamed for this? Not the fact he is a very disturbed individual, but instead it’s the propaganda that the Tea Party ideals are involved because of who he shot. Looking at this guy’s YouTube page, I don’t see the connection with the Tea Party propaganda. Just looking at this guys YouTube page kinda made me question my own sanity for a minute. Not everything is a conspiracy. The Oklahoma City bombing wasn’t some CIA Black Op mission. It was a disturbed man who murdered innocent people including children. It was a tragedy. Much like this story, there isn’t much to it. Probably a voice in this guy’s head told him to do it. He just does not seem to be mentally stable and fully functioning.  His YouTube videos, including the one that burns an American flag, are filled with fragmented sentences that contradict each other regularly. As much as I would like for the Tea Party propaganda to have influenced his actions, that is simply not the case. This blog isn’t part of the media, so we like to tell the truth whenever possible. The truth is most likely that this guy is a schizophrenic, with multiple mental health issues. I am waiting to hear the propaganda, much like with the last school shooting, that blames the fact that he smoked pot and listened to rock and roll music.  The fact is anyone that would shoot 18 people, killing 6 of them, is mentally disturbed. He deserves to spend life in a state mental institution, which is nothing more than a prison with doctors, fancy drugs, and padded cells. We can start analyzing his life but I don’t understand where someone can get Tea Party propaganda being a cause, especially when he had no conservative leanings according to people that knew him.  Ultimately, I feel sorry for the family because they are going to be dragged into a media circus who will be looking for some angle to get readers and viewers.  The truth will never sell nearly as much as the propaganda will.  The truth is this guy was mentally unstable, and has probably been mentally unstable for a good portion of his life. So the case is solved here.  Whack-job has trouble dealing with life, has more problems than he can handle, gets a gun, and goes off the deep end, taking as many poor souls with him as he can. This guy is proud of what he did, the story on his mug shot says it all. Could there have been something someone could have done? Yes, the Baker Act laws allow anyone to have someone sent in for psychological evaluation if they feel the person is a danger to themselves or other people. Listening to his college classmates, if the school wasn’t going to do anything, one or more of them could have went to their local sheriff’s office and filed a report if they were sincerely afraid for their safety or even for his. If so many people truly were afraid of him, why didn’t anyone speak up? This tragedy could have been avoided, but it wasn’t. I suggest everyone listen to the interviews regarding this incident. Make up your own minds. Think about what you would do if you came in contact with someone for MONTHS ON END and continuously feared for your safety when in contact with him. Would you tell someone?

The only story out of these two that I will be watching closely is the one about the crazy guy that shot 18 people. Six people died with one of them being a 9-year old girl. I personally think he should get the death penalty for killing six people, especially due to the pride written all over his face in his mug shot. I’d like for him to get the death penalty, but I’d settle for him being in gen pop to be passed around for the rest of his life…

Obama made a touching speech today January 13th, 2011…I’m sorry but Obama is a good leader, especially since he urges us not to blame politics for this.
