And so I have thought all day long about this blog entry and where this blog is going in the blogosphere bloggerworld these days, if anywhere. To blog or not to blog, that is the question. And I have found myself blah blogging on my other blog these days, so much that it wants to confuse me in my blogaholicness sometimes. And on this blog someone posted a comment to a posting a few days ago titled "The Headlines Again" that is about guns and gun violence. And the comment was written by Morgan Lighter and it said: "AH, what a conundrum.
Our Constitution was written at a time when the framers could not possibly have foreseen what a mess we have made of things.
The Supreme Court, by their rulings, has made of mockery of best justice and has also bastardized the Constitution to no end. We might as well use it for toilet paper.
If all the guns in the whole world were to miraculously vanish tomorrow, it still wouldn't solve the problem. People would still be killing each other, be it with their bare hands, clubs, knives, bombs, etc.
The problem, as I see it, is that we no longer have any sense of morality, brotherly love, nor the wish to help others. We have become a society of 'me' rather than 'we'. As long as I got mine, the rest of you can get stuffed. (I know that's a broad statement, yes, there are people who care.)
I wish I had the answer,but I don't. I'll just keep on being the best person I can be and realize that we are all striving to do the same.
Factoid - The erroneous publication in 1888 of a premature obituary of Alfred Nobel by a French newspaper, condemning him for his invention of dynamite, is said to have brought about his decision to leave a better legacy after his death. The obituary stated - Le marchand de la mort est mort - ("The merchant of death is dead") and went on to say, "Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever before, died yesterday."
Thus we have the "Nobel Peace Prize."
Here's hoping we can all get along."
Hugh? Could someone tell me out there in the blogosphere about that above part about the Nobel Peace Prize is named after Dr. Alfred Nobel, someone who invented guns. Am I totally misunderstanding this or did I read this passage incorrectly. What is so Nobel about killing someone? And what would Michael Moore and that "Bowling For Columbine" film have to say about this. I think I should Wikipedia this information up to see if my eyes and ears are betraying me. And regardless of this Wikipedia outcome, what does this have to do with a No Police State?
