Recently, I received a comment from a reader about the negativity displayed on this blog. They then proceeded to disparage me with personal attacks on my character. And I suppose one could see it that way, even myself.
And I suppose I could post a comment about how much I liked, Batman Begins, a movie I saw over the weekend. I could talk about how well the story was constructed, the excellent direction by Christopher Nolan, or the great performances by Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, and Liam Neeson. I could recommend the movie to just about anyone, but it would just be my opinion. Such is the same with my other postings, they are just opinions.
But unfortunately, I am no longer like "got a grip". I don't sit back and drink a beer or smoke a bong, watch t.v. and pretend there's nothing wrong with this picture. And going through my previous postings, I don't think I was excessively harsh on anybody, except for those slime bucket brain damaged "we've come for your children" army recruiters. What I do is merely base my opinion on facts I find on the web, and then post a link to the source of the facts. (Or like now where I post alink to cool blog I found http://www.weirdandfunkyart.blogspot.com )
I do this because fact is as close to truth as you can get. Ten years ago, when I was a stoner, I saw a doc on the local public access channel that contained raw footage from the seige at Waco. The movie went on to show how NBC then edited the raw footage to make it appear as if the Branch Davidians had fired first. This is from the same media that was telling me that NAFTA would be great for this country. I began to read, and more important, I began to think. One by one I removed the knowledge filters and belief systems. I began to speak out more, at the untruths spewed forth by the left and the right.
More importantly, I became angry at the direction I saw my country headed in. I felt frustrated because there was nothing I can do. Then I discovered this place through http://whatreallyhappened.com . I can complain about it here, and maybe, when the "terrorists" attack during a training drill http://www.libertyforum.org/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=news_government&Number=293794349#Post293794349 I can say, I tol' ya!
I call it being positively negative.
