R.I.P. Michael Jackson

August 28, 1958-June 25, 2009

Okay I went camping this weekend, and had some time to just relax, shoot guns, drink beer, socialize, and think. The last three things put together, brought up an interesting subject. Michael Jackson. Everybody was talking about his passing, as if it was a close relative, or friend that had passed. Don’t get me wrong, when I heard he had passed, I was somewhat… I don’t know if I would say sad, but I was bummed. Not just because it was Michael Jackson, but just hearing about somebody recognizable dying at such an early age is sad.  Well the main conversation around the campfire was just, pure hurt, and sadness. I felt like I might be a little heartless, because I just didn’t see it that way. After awhile I started thinking, its always weird when an icon dies. We all have some kind of attachment to to that person.  Maybe it’s just that it connects to whatever was going on in your life, but I think people do feel like they are losing somebody close to them. The one thing I think about M.Jack, is that you can’t just blindly speculate, and judge him for what he has been accused of.  I’m not a defender of that type of stuff, but he’s never been convicted. People want to say it’s because he paid off the families. That’s fine, but if Michael Jackson touches my kid, I’m not taking any kind of money to let it go. I don’t think a parent could just do that. For that reason alone, it’s hard to believe for me. It’s easy to just say, ” Well why was he sleeping with a ten year old?” You can guarantee that you wouldn’t do that, and that alone is sick. Well the thing you don’t understand is, Michael Jackson didn’t grow up like you. He was physically, and mentally abused.  He has been in the lime light almost his whole life, and never had an inch of room to just be a kid. His mind never went through the natural process, a mind goes through from being a child, to adolescence, to being an adult. He never had a childhood, that is why he was trying to recreate that when he became older.  All that, and being treated like he is was a monster by the media. I’m sure the only time he really felt comfortable, and confident was on stage. Too many people make too many assumptions, just to hear their own voice weigh in on something. Screw that noise. Well regardless, there is no argument. He was the king of pop, and a very interesting, and complex figure.  R.I.P. Michael Jackson

THE VALUE OF LIFE IS WORTH LESS THAN THE DOLLAR NOWADAYS

I had wrote something else I wanted to post, but I was watching the news and heard a 911 call, and was just sickened by the lack of compassion, and the ruthless brutality of soulless criminals, fueled by greed. In Arivaca, AZ a man and his daughter were shot and killed. The wife, and mother was also shot but did not sustain life threatening injuries. This occurred during a home invasion, where the murderers were searching for drugs, and money. I won’t get into the detail, but I will post the link to the story at the bottom. Okay I know some people will have the opinion that, if the criminals were there looking for drugs, well then it was just a case of a drug dealer getting killed, because he was a criminal himself. To that I say fuck you. Have a heart. I’m not talking about the father, but for the 9 year old little girl that absolutely had no choice. They shot and killed her so she couldn’t be a witness. Those criminals are fucking cowards. If you can shoot and kill any human being, for the purpose of profit or any type of gain, your pretty sick. When you get into the realm of killing kids, you are on a level of sickness that completely, and utterly overwhelms my compassion for you. I know having this position might bring me down to the criminal’s level. To that I say, ” I don’t give a shit.” They deserve to be tortured, and I’m not talking about this water boarding, or anything like that. I’m talking about physical beating, and forced sodomy. As juvenile as it sounds, for me to have a position like this, I don’t care. Maybe my current feelings, are a result of just hearing the 911 call, but like I said earlier, the value of life is nothing these days. My generation just doesn’t give a fuck either. We are so desensitized as a society, that something like this just serves as background noise that doesn’t even get your attention as you pass by the television. AN INNOCENT 9 YEAR OLD GIRL!!!! Imagining her last moments seriously saddens me.

Here is the story, and a link to the 911 call.
