Go Up Go Down

Not sure what the deal was!   Over there when you rent a Furnished place you get the whole Enchilada.   Blankets, Knife and Forks Plates,    All Furnishing.

After two years trying to make a Go as a Chief in the US, they came back and wanted the place back.

Only thing he was pissed about was I broke one of his Dinning Room Chairs.

I had to buy him another that was close but not the same.

How many of your friends do you think you can convince to strap on a Bomb vest and pull the pin?   

This is where the brain washing comes in.



For the "right" cause --- probably more than you think.     I know that I am going to offend a lot of people with what I am about to say, I don't intend to do so, and I certainly do NOT intend to defame or denigrate true heroes, but psychologically how much of a stretch is it to get from throwing yourself on a life grenade to save your friends to blowing yourself up if you truly believe that is the best way to promote a cause you believe.  If you knew you could stop a Hitler, especially early in his career, but you also knew the only way to do so would require your death at the same time would you?  And how would history have viewed someone who attempted such an action?   History is rife with examples of people who have accepted genuinely suicide missions for less--without "brainwashing" being involved.

Such people may be very much the exception, but they DO exist in all times and in all cultures.

The problem is the government is more scared of the trouble these "people" might cause than they are of the citizens they (government officials) are supposed to represent and protect.

I agree with you but by the same token brain washing is a reality. I have seen it I have even lived it so to speak and it's not one or two kids that were talking about it's literately 1000 of them and they will become adults. (Suicide bombers and the likes)

Trouble is it doesn't really require "brain washing", unless you consider controlling the educational system brainwashing....in which case just about everyone is "brainwashed" into accepting the societal norm prevalent in their culture (or subculture/neighborhood).   Recognizing THAT, goes a long, long way to explaining why most people in most cultures just go along with whatever comes along as if they were sheep instead of independent minded people.   And that is also why every society is susceptible to the rise of and manipulation by demagogues and other tyrants (regardless of how well they describe themselves as populists and/or democrats).

So in other words, I could convince you to strap on a bomb vest and pull the pin if I could convince you doing so would make a difference when it comes to protecting those rights for your family.

These guys were looking for an excuse to kill someone. They came prepared with machetes and meat cleavers. This wasn't an act of passion. It was premeditated murder and because or the reason they stated many, many times - it was a crime of hatred and meant to invoke terror. Therefore, it was plain and simple to me. It was terrorism.

Send those two to me. Trust me. Justice will be done.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
