In the last few days I have had to take a break from all social media because I simply can't stand the political trolling, personal attacks and
nonsense that goes with any event like the one that has happened in Orlando. It's overwhelming and exhausting when you mix politics, ideals and
emotions even within your own head much less when you meet up with somebody who has different ideals and wants to argue. I think a lot of us are
experiencing that reality right now.
I am skeptical about these type of events because I will go on record and say that I believe that 9/11 and Sandy Hook were government manufactured
false flag events and while I don't claim to know the level or scope of innocent fatalities, I know that the government had a hand in those events
either way. I don't know about this event, it seems to me to have the hallmarks of a legitimate event as of now and if that is the case then my God,
it is truly tragic and I could pretend to be heart broken but I won't lie and say I am. My sympathies go out to the families, friends and first
responders that will be affected by these events but I didn't know any of the people that died and I don't see any difference in these lives and the
thousands of lives that are lost across the globe daily by other things, starvation, drone strikes, terrorism, homicide, suicide and bee stings.
All loss of life is tragic but I can't shed tears for all of it, nobody can. The world and life in general is perilous, unsafe and for everyone on
Earth, any moment could be your last. Everyone needs to take a good hard long look at the world right now because even as compared to 20 years ago,
it's bat # crazy. A person, should they want to be balanced and cope with the state of the world today must learn to separate rational and productive
thought from knee jerk emotion. In this sense, there is no middle ground, you can not pick and choose when you wan't to think rationally and when you
want to act on emotion, you have to make a conscious choice to do one or the other and stick to it.
This instance in itself is incredibly complex because you seem to have a Muslim shooter who may or may not have been radicalized that had contact with
the FBI who allegedly shot up a gay night club. This scenario seems so convenient for current events but alas, that may have been the effect the
shooter was looking to evoke when planning it. Either way, there are some things we should analyze when considering this event.
Like Boston, there are some things people really need to take note of above and beyond the incident itself. In Boston, you had immediate and total
marshal law invoked and had innocent American families ordered at gun point out of their homes. You had what appeared to be a completely militarized
police force rolling through the streets of Boston indistinguishable from military forces in Iraq or Afghanistan. You found out that almost every
place you go in a major city, you are being recorded in high def by...... Well, who knows but everything you do in any urban center these days is in
full def color video, guaranteed.
In this particular case, being so close to the presidential election and so many air bags looking to posture, you see everyone individually as media
or as groups trying to posture to spin this as something they warned against or something they could prevent in the future. The reality is, some
people are crazy, there is no fixing crazy and nobody will be able to stop anything like this ever. Yes, somebody that has been contacted by the FBI
for a legitimate reason should probably not be able to buy an AR-15 it's not going to stop the gas station employee down the road if he decides he
wants to go on a rampage. There are 6 billion people on Earth, some of them are crazy, some of them rape, murder, torture, maim, hurt children, kick
puppies and so on. Some people are sick and there is no way around that, there never will be and the goal is to have more good guys than bad.
Banning guns in America because of this incident is nonsensical, it won't change anything except to further limit personal freedoms and quicken our
decent into authoritarian slavery (Yes I'm serious, take a good look at the last decade). Trading liberty for security has never worked out for any
nation in the history of the world, nor has allowing the government to be the only people with firearms or weapons. Freedom, liberty, well.........
They have a price and it's not free. Almost no one can purchase automatic weapons in America, and an automatic weapon was not used in this shooting,
we have sweeping backgrounds checks that in this instance didn't work so a first question would be to ask why a Muslim who was into Islam and who has
a father that was a radical Islam supporter who had been under watch by the FBI was allowed to purchase a firearm legally.
Can we at least agree to start by asking that question first? This conversation, if it is to be had, needs to be had on a "first things first" basis
and if this incident is the catalyst that sparks that conversation then rationally, we need to ask the tough questions about exactly how this guy got
a gun to begin with.
I hope to have a good exchange, it is a difficult topic and thanks for reading.
