Dolphin Slaughter Festival

And the seas will turn red. The irony is laughable, this has been happening for a long time now. It’s just gotten popular enough to spread the word. These festival participants will all die in a justifiable cataclysmic event. When slaughter becomes autonomous like a well oiled machine as it has with this festival, it’s easy to see the cruelty. The message is simply amplified with this mass slaughter. It’s just as cruel to torture, mutilate, and execute detainees/prisoners like the Nazis did and USA does. Mankind, as a conglomerate, is capable of extraordinary things but we’re also capable of atrocities like this. This type of discriminate genocide among dolphins could be compared to say … just slaughtering the Jews. Human or Dolphin; what’s the difference? It’s the same mental process with similar physical exertion. We’re all animals but it’s our supposedly superior human intellect and capacity for advancement that sets us apart from the beasts of the planet. I see no intelligence in slaughtering creatures to feel accepted into the groupthink adulthood. That’s just childish. Senseless violent action is such a base primal practice. The bathing in the blood reminds me of Saturnalia type sacrifice and worship.

I understand that Denmark is a large fishing industry and all these twats have to bathe in the blood of their prey to eradicate any lingering compassion for life. They have to make a living just like anyone else, albeit an entangled one. For these Denmark folks, the adult life of living the subservient lie starts with the ceremonial sacrifice of these creatures. They don’t want to try to free themselves from a system that enslaves them anymore. They just give in and accept it. If public ceremonial human sacrifice without cause wasn’t frowned upon, they would be killing their own; then they’d really become adults! Instead, they settle for sacrificing these “lesser” mammals. If I’m going to kill something, it’s to eat it, remove it from misery, or it’s attempting to harm me or another. Call it what you will but murder is still murder. It’s all the same; we just give it different names: War, Terrorism, Homicide, Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing, Abortion, Mass Murder, Sacrifice, Slaughter, Etc. In my opinion, if you express a violent nature then you must expect violent reaction.

I’m a realist with common sense and a skill for accurately placing responsibility. If you’re the cause for something to stop living, then you murdered it. And don’t try to use that “supply meets demand” excuse to transfer responsibility. Perhaps if an individual wants to eat another creature, they should catch, kill, and prepare it themselves. Jeffrey Dahmer had to catch his own prey. When we’re too lazy or weak to do things ourselves then we pay others to do them for us. Society creates industries for those activities and then protects that structure by enacting laws to prohibit or make it costly for the individual to do it their self. Therefore, not being responsible for ourselves produces a loss of freedoms. It also produces a class of individual that thinks they need to slaughter creatures to become an adult.

Away For Project

I won’t be publishing a daily article for maybe over a week unless I feel a need to. My computer time will be for A/V editing projects. I’ve been aching to throw something together. I got some new software, skills, and ideas to try out. If I produce anything in that time worth distributing, I’ll make it available.

The Skilled Eye

Recently, I’ve been delving further into still photography. I really enjoy capturing contrasts on film. I don’t have a modern camera, so I’ve been using a [Yashica FR I] camera I found at a consignment shop in Loris. It was a lucky find because it’s performing like a decent camera. In my opinion, film is superior to digital because the light is transposed directly to an analog medium. There is no digital encoding or image quantizing, so there is no loss of light data or definition.
I photographed the following images with my 35mm:

Damages

This thread was moved to a more accessible location: Damages

Damages” are ultra short dark stories containing no more than one hundred words. The final sentence ends with the resolution of a relevant point, fact, or event. Damages are usually untitled and contain clever phrases conveying the most details with the least amount of words. It’s been stated this is the goal of writing damages.

The magician enters stage left and performs his main act for the unsuspecting audience. He opens his red cloak to reveal a reflective disc no bigger in diameter than a Frisbee. The magician throws the disc into the audience and decapitates the front row of spectators. The crowd roars with applaud, the magician takes his bow, and the curtains close. That night, the population was reduced by eight.

Fire rips through the flickering corridor consuming peeling paint and aged wood it concealed. Beastly roaring of the colorful heat penetrates the air silencing any hope of suppressing panic. Odors from the crisping shells of the late permeate the stifling swell of animated smoke. The ceiling crashes in with torrid surfaces of structural embers searing what they impress. The world fades to black with a final discernible emotion of relief as distant cries of the quick are free of danger. No such fortune for the slow; just the memorable cremation service by your resident wrinkled stumblebum with the oil lamp.

Healthcare Smelthcare

There are a lot more interesting bills to keep an eye on while the healthcare issue is in the foreground.

Have a look at:
S. 3081 [Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010]
Here’s a bill concerning high-value detainee interrogation groups which could detain nearly anyone based on their potential abilities. That’s a little vague. Sounds like a wide open bill, so let’s take a little peek at some specifics:

Section 3(d)(2) [criteria for designating of individuals as high-value detainees]
(A) The potential threat the individual poses for an attack on civilians or civilian facilities within the United States or upon United States citizens or United States civilian facilities abroad at the time of capture or when coming under the custody or control of the United States.
(B) The potential threat the individual poses to United States military personnel or United States military facilities at the time of capture or when coming under the custody or control of the United States.
(C) The potential intelligence value of the individual.
(D) Membership in al Qaeda or in a terrorist group affiliated with al Qaeda.
(E) Such other matters as the President considers appropriate.

Section 3(d)(4) [submittal to congress]
The President shall submit the regulations and guidance required by this subsection to the appropriate committees of Congress not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act.

***
Nice. Not only is the president capable of determining “such other matters considered appropriate” for designating high-value detainees but he can also set the regulations and guidance after the bill is enacted. That’s like the agreement license you get in software purchases. In order to read the license, you have to open the software. You have to buy it before you can open it and the license says you automatically agreed to it by purchasing it. We don’t know what we’re buying. It’s possible I’m wrong about this one, but bills like these are important to watch for.

This is another bill designed for the protection of a regime with a hunger for oppressive authority. These types of detainments are already happening; they just need this to do it legally (in the open). People will say “Would you rather have terrorists running around blowing us up?” Silly folks, you would have to outlaw intrinsic human freedoms to stop terrorist attacks; that’s why it’s scary. Terrorism is the work of really angry and determined individuals. Perhaps we should focus on not pissing off most of the planet by taking sides or following orders like drone bees. I’m not talking about disarmament; I’m saying we need to act a little smarter. Oops, there goes the “S” word. Smarts haven’t been a strong quality in American citizens for a while now.

It’s not the lack of legislation that brings threats into our society. The recent causes of terrorism have been the invitations we’ve sent out. Why has the U.S. been getting involved in foreign wars? They’re not our affair unless you consider the private and corporate profiteering we do in the process. War means someone is getting paid or going into debt, but it’s more about shifting power and gaining influence over your debtors. There is always obedience to a lender but I’d like to find out just how much obedience is involved in our case. If someone is in debt to you, you gain a power over them and are likely to influence their actions. Doesn’t it concern anyone who our government is in debt to? Who’s guiding our military?

(There will be more on bills like these later.)

Marsh Creek Incident

Charlie fought his way through the field struggling against the vines wrapping around his ankles. He needed to reach the creek before the marshals entered the clearing. He knew he wouldn’t stand a chance against their rifles in an open field.

Hearing the sound of the rushing water from the creek ahead, he slung open the cylinder on his revolver; empty. A troubling concern struck him. He was in such a rush and didn’t have time to grab a box of .357 magnum shells. I better not get cornered, he thought.

(More to come.)

Unstable

Rattled nerves bring crazy plans,
Uncertainty and
A shortage of helping hands.

Whispering mouths inside crowds,
Spreading lies around
Makes staring eyes feel like sounds.

Click click in the hidden head,
Growing strong anger
See nothing but darkened red.

Cry out for help with
No time for the unstable,
Luck decides the fate
And yet I choose the fable.

Shivering hates’ hold
Hits like a shower of cold,
Wholly sobering
Impacts of bold rage droplets.

Broken is the mind
With toiling misery’s whine,
I am unstable.

With that I am fine.
