Speaking of the real problem …

Reasons why I have grown to despise and doubt every single word the current Pravda media has spoken for years on every topic

Using an horrific tragedy to drive personal agenda is disgusting, takes away from our ability to empathize by desensitizing the masses thru false volume, and worst of all redirects us from looking at the very difficult reasons these events occur.

Thru the mechanics of laziness and myopathy, people are ignoring the obvious issues to rather focus on objects that, in one form or another, have existed for more years than most can count simply because it feels good to point away from ourselves.

The issue at hand is primarily (although not exclusively) 1-2 generations of people that have been over exposed to fictional and visual violence, children allowed to play more and more realistic games that make pointing guns and shooting at other people not only acceptable but the goal for success, and social media that promotes the absolute worship of self where the goal is to promote you persona with the blatant authority of the send button.

With that social reformation, how is violence as the eventual tool to self promotion at all a surprise to anyone???

People being reported to the authorities as threats can be dismissed due to the overwhelming numbers of reports as it is now a common occurrence for insane ranting on media.

People are choosing to blame objects simply because as a society we are flat out unwilling to address and blame a hugely complex issue that we are an accomplice to.

Removing objects does not remove the will, and where there is a will there is a way.

This needs to end, and society needs to have the blinders and redirection of easy answers torn away so that the truth can be addressed and the hard work begun to reclaim the hard fought for peace and tranquillity we have earned in this country.

Here is a totally unedited spilling of thoughts, more likely than not at my goal family oak dining room table, a belly full of expensive bourbon and Dan Fogelburg playing in the background. (can you hear Leader Of The Band playing in the slurry of a good hard whiskey drunk??)

Ask me if it would be so much better written with even the least bit of editing in the sobriety of the day light and I would agree beyond words, but at times these words are at their very best in the most raw and in the most honest of expression.

Some days, a hearts honesty is valued beyond easily mastered grammatical perfection.
