Help, I’m In The Rabbit-Hole

A facebook friend, coincidentally also an actual friend, shared the following video to their page thing the other day, and so I watched it, being the sucker for a good conspiracy theory that I am.  Now I’m submerged in the 9/11 ‘research quagmire’, again… Should probably check if this clip has been debunked, but if you watch this while thinking “everything we know is wrong, and everything is fake”, well, don’t say I didn’t mention the rabbit-hole, and don’t blame me when you’re up well after 3a.m., skilfully dodging the reptilian shape-shifting world domination conspiracy sites in search of more … Continue reading Help, I’m In The Rabbit-Hole

I Love Guns

What a horribly inappropriate title for a blog post.  On a day such as it is…  Please bear with me. It’s true – I love guns.  I also fear them immensely. I’ve had the opportunity to ‘play’ with some guns at various junctures – L1A1, M-9, M-16, M-60, Steyr AUG (F88), blah, blah, blah.

But they shouldn’t really even have to exist, for the … Continue reading I Love Guns

Double-speak is more rife than ever, and is being used like a hammer to overtly pound propaganda and disinformation into the heads of the dumbed-down, confused, sedated, and easily-distracted masses.  Insulting enough; but so much worse due to the pathetic quality of the language used, and worse again because the brainless media and consumers thereof simply gobble it all up, … Continue reading This Week In Double-Speak (#1)

Answer The Damn Question!

Almost every time I see or hear a politician in an interview, I can be heard screaming “Answer the damn question!”  Same goes for business leaders, bureaucrats, CEO’s, media ‘personalities’, company spokespersons, and all the other time-wasters and obfuscators who refuse to participate in any variety of ‘plain talking’. Seems everyone is too scared to just simply speak the truth.  Covering the backside has taken priority over facts and real information.  And I blame most, if not all, of the world’s ills on this apparent inability to just. answer. a. question. I could rattle off pages of the ills I speak … Continue reading Answer The Damn Question!
