120327 Three Year Old Pictures

Moon posted. She reveals herself this way. Mrs. Sensei seems to be everything Sensei is not. He is expressive and open, while she is private and protective. She asked Moon to remove a picture from her Facebook album. I gave Mrs Sensei the 'like' button for that. I have asked Moon to remove items, to conceal items, to stop playing "that awful music"! (Bread) I tried to be sensitive about it, because I knew that she was hurting, too.

The picture was of Sensei giving an award to a certain young woman. When that picture was taken, it was the best of times. She had been Moon's best friend and a leader among her peers. At the end of 2008, we had no inkling of what was going to play out in the next two years. Moon says that in her heart and mind, that girl died. She loves her still, but considers the creature that took her place to be a doppelganger. The same doppelganger took her dad, too.

I know the girl exists. I accidentally saw her on the street about a year ago. She turned away, maybe because she was the one who actually made and planted the bombs. She knows that I know that. She, however, is 'free'. She got probation only, and continues with her life. Such is the way of 'justice'.

I don't have to worry about it. Worldly justice can do its own thing.

120324 Sometimes I Grump

Sometimes, I wish I could stop grumping through life. Illogic happens, and happens again and again. Politics, for instance, twist my gut with the deviousness of politicians and the idiocy of the masses. We have (had) freedom, but the people want safety instead*. Many people have traced the pattern of descent, but few can do anything about it, except educate. Who listens? Most see the beginning as a few seemingly innocuous bills passed when the 20th century started. Utah is attempting to repeal one of them now. The federal government owns quite a bit of land that should belong to the states, or even to private citizens. Most people don't know that there is more vacant land in North America than on any other continent in the world. Consider how huge Asia is. Think about Africa. Those places are well populated. Even South America is populated, but North America has empty space, because the government owns it and prevents anyone from occupying it.

<expletive deleted> EPA prevents people from occupying their own legally obtained land. Because a previous owner had dug a hole to catch rain water for livestock, the property I used to own was considered a 'wetland area', making it illegal for me to fill in the hole. That is how ridiculous the EPA is. No one can fill a hole without filing an environmental impact statement!

*1 Thessalonians 5:3
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."

“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

120312 Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

Pain level 6. Anger mode initiated. 

It is illegal for me to smash rude people with my cane, so I'm going to release my ire on some innocent weeds and frightened dust bunnies instead. This avoids the Vogons, but does nothing for the torn muscle.
