The Death of my Xanga


I really am not a WordPress or a Blogspot sort of blogger. I am not sure why my old Xanga did so well. Lets face it I'm a piss poor writer, do not post porn, or half naked selfies. But I still had a fun time blogging and conversing with my larger than justified readership. I think I'm going to hang out in the nice quite part of the blogosphere that is called LiveJournal.

Technology is a wonderful & terrible thing


So here I am on my on my companies desktop doing some work. But I'm doing this from a London hotel room. In the old days I would not have been able to do this work at all. Doing it while on vacation. I think I have said it all on this subject.

It is cold here right now, they tell me its colder than normal. A report on this subject when I get back.

It's Catholic bashing season


So why would somone who used to get 100 comments or more on her better entries on Xanga come to Livejournal?


"Down goes Ratzinger! Down goes Ratzinger! Man, that old nazi really hit the floor"
______________________________________________

No that was not out of context, the rest of it was equally nasty. Oh and a bit ignorant as someone was seriously hurt. When a very old man breaks a hip it can be the end of their life. And please don't even try and say it was an attempt at being funny.

So as Mancouch is edited by Xanga employees. What do you think of Xanga officially approving of bigoted anti Catholic hate? There was zero humor in the mancouch entry. An editor at Xanga hates the Pope and was rather obvious about it.

My question is. What other religions and philosophies is it ok to hate?

Evangelicals?

Pagans?

Atheists?

Buddhists?

Muslims?

Hindus?

Vegans?  . . . . I like my Vegans roasted.

Hiatus



I am having a great time, but I have no free time. So sometime between Christmas and New Years, I should be spending a bit a time blogging again.

"It’s not enough to be rich and famous if you’re not somehow “relevant.” Whether it’s Prince Charles or Al Gore or Leonardo DiCaprio or any of these other guys, they all have the same message: “Hey, I deserve to live like this. Now shut up and shiver in the dark, you peasants.”


So much hypocrisy and so many lies being told, but I have no time to comment on it.

You all have a Merry Christmas.

I need to write that now in case I'm not back before then.

Redneck Christmas


I have been a busy decorating the house for Christmas. Some of you guys might not really understand just how redneck Enumclaw Washington is. Only 35 miles outside of Seattle, one might think us rather urban.

Here is a taste of some typical Christmas decorating around these parts.

Redneck Christmas

I think now you might get the idea.

I was planing on getting to know Livejournal better. Those of you on Xanga know that I have not been around there ether. Only two things keep me from blogging.

To much fun.






Or Too much work.






Sadly I am talking about work. See you guys when I get more time.

Sing Paise $




I'm going to be out of town until next Monday so I hope you guys all have a great Thanksgiving. Until I'm back enjoy this video.

So Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has gone from being an enemy combatant, of the sort who traditionally (and legally) was ether shot on sight, or given a fast military trail then shot or hung. To being a normal man charged with a crime in the USA. For those who do not know he was an major leader in al-Qaeda and the principal architect of the 9/11 attacks.

To the point, our glorious leader (Obama) has decided that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed should be given a US civilian trial. And yes that is unusual, as we have never treated foreign enemy combatants the same way we treat a US citizen who has committed a felony before. And for very good reasons.

Well that is what we are going to do (by the order of the Obama administration) so lets just let him go now and get it over with.

You see if he his trail is in a US civilian court, then he will be tried under US civilian law.

Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution


In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district where in the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence
He was denied his right to an attorney for years, and his right to a speedy trial was denied as well. He has been in jail for years now without a trial. And he has the right to confront all the witnesses against him. Yes even if they are al-Qaida turncoats or U.S. spies still transmitting information to U.S. intelligence?

Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
_______________________________________________________________________________

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's confession and almost all evidence against him was due to his forced confession against himself. The man was water boarded among other things.

If he goes on trial in a US civilian court and under US civilian law as the Obama administration says they are going to do. Then not dismiss this case now because to convict this man under these conditions requires that we ignore the US constitution.

Ambiguity



If morality is often based on the situation. If the law as written changes with time. If the greater good should always be concidered when thinking in terms of what is right, wrong, the meanings of laws. if the words below are ones that we really need to be looking at.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

We should not be so concerned with the outdated ideas and philosophies of those who wrote the old laws.

In a past entry back on Xanga, a response I kept getting repeatedly was if we strictly followed the law, that people would die. Likely that was not true all, we were talking about health care and in the USA you will be treated if you have the money or not. So long as we are not taking about exceptional and cutting edge experimental medicine. The real issue is being bankrupted by it.

But if saving lives is what it is all about. If domestic tranquility, common defence, and the general welfare of the people is what is most important. Then lets do it right.

More than half of all murders and 80% of all crime in the USA is Gang related.


Think of the lives we can save and the peaceful paradise we might live in if we simply killed all gang members. Think of the money we would save in prison costs.

Remembering that you would stop almost 10,000 murders every year. That overall crime rates would drop by 80%. How can you justify not banning all gangs and executing anyone suspected of being a gang member?

Anyway this is the sort of thing I do on Xanga. Between this and my other ones here you guys should be able to see who and what I am all about. Now I need to get out and look around Livejournal
