I wonder, does anyone take other people seriously? I only ask the question because there has been a sort of wildfire spreading of school violence in the passed few months. You have the shootings in Canada, Germany, and the U.S.. What is the deal here?

Is no one watching anymore, does anyone actually care about the well-being of a fellow human? I am beginning to think that a lot of people do not care, I also what to know what causes such a violent lashing-out among people. We can certainly blame the person and have them punished, but we also need to place the blame on ourselves. As social creatures, it would be more responsible to help each other, than to just sit back and watch.

So, I was planning to write on this yesterday, but things can get a little hectic.

The article I linked to was in reference to the fact that the GOP knew about a congresman, who was sending inappropriate emails to a congressional page, for months. I guess the democrats lost the memo about it. Wow, someone really screwed the pooch on that one. In any case, the fact that the family didn't want anyone to know what was going on except for the parties involved. That was the family's choice, I cannot fault them.

I can, however, fault the congressman and the party he is involved with. The fact that they held the information back is kind of stupid, I mean, they essentially control the media, and most of the media types only care about the ratings. Why hold back, still trying to win in Nov? OK! Good job team. You guys really suck GOP

You know what the funniest thing about the TO suicide debacle is? The fact that the media cares so much as to label the man suicidal without any shred of evidence. This is why no one respects the news media right now. Reporters are no longer detectives, they are prepackaged Ted Coppel-Sam Donaldson-Dan Rather human hybrid clones that only respond to the almighty capitalist dollar.

You may think Anderson Cooper is such a nice young man, who is principled in his journalism. But, for all his charming good looks, have you seen any real substance. is he really such a good guy? I am not saying that he isn't, I am just implying that everyone should seek to doo their own research. We don't truly know what filters our information goes through.

It could be that I am just paranoid, could be that I am right.

So, I found this article on thursday, September 28, and, quite franly, I am appalled. It is just one item on the list of failures in Iraq that the govenment cannot handle. To think that something as vital to the stability of Iraq as a police training facility is in disrepair, that's shameful. Look I don't pretend to know what it is like over there, but I do know that there is some credibility comming from new reports about the situation. If the commanding force in Iraq cannot show some sort of stability, then this whole project is doomed.

I am not saying that we should pull out, no, we have already opened a can of worms in the middle east. Our goal now should be containment and repair. While the ruling party in the US tries to give us a rosy picture, we as the American citizenship need to stand up and say: "Give us the truth, respect our intelligence, and get the job done right!" There has to be some way to fix this problem, or we will end up worse off than 9/11.
