Life Thoughts

10.2.17 Thoughts….

Today has been a day of crazy, crazy news and this week will definitely bring forth a flurry of ridiculousness. As far as I know Tom Petty isn’t dead but most of the major music websites stated that he did indeed pass away but then there are sources that say that there was no official confirmation so at this point all I can is that I wish the rock pioneer and his family the best during this insane time. Social media loves killing celebrities before they actually die.

The first thing that I woke up to via a CNN alert on my phone was the terrorist attack in Las Vegas during a Country Music concert. Yes I said TERRORIST! Call a spade a spade and be honest about the situation. If he was person of color OR a muslim, the terrorist tag would be thrown around quite fast without a need to verify facts. Around 6am, I saw via my news app that 20 people lost their lives and 100 were wounded but by the end of my work day the number has increased to over 50 dead and 500 plus were injured. Much is being said about the suspect Stephen Paddock at this point and of course nothing seems to add up but if he did it then he did it and that’s all there is to it. By the way, “Thoughts and Prayers” will no longer cut it. What’s truly needed is a change in policy as it pertains to gun control. You have regular smegular U.S. Citizens with a large collection of guns that they don’t need or those who are extremely mentally ill have little to no problem purchasing firearms and that’s really bizarre. Some of these trigger happy jackasses are quick to quote the 2nd amendment of the U.S. (“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”) but of course the intent of said law has been twisted and bent to fit their agenda. How many more lives have to be taken violently until some sort of change is made? TRUUUUUUMP what the f*ck are you going to do besides talk in circles?
