This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Showing My Bias - Violence
I'm a big believer in non-violence as the best and most effective tool for solving conflict. It has the possibility of creating a peace that doesn't depend on hoping your enemy forgives what you did to their little kids; chopping of their heads, dragging them through the streets and all kinds of other fun stuff that happens in wars.

However I never discount the need for self-defense. You can't just hope that other people will play nice if you do. There are crazy people in this world that actually like killing people and being assholes.

But, the need for self defense is minimal. If you want to keep a gun for your own personal protection that's fine with me, but for gawd's sake, learn how to use it and get over the fantasy that it will make up for other "shortcomings". You have your truck for that.

And please realize that with the ability to kill comes a great responsibility. You should only need to shoot that gun when and if it becomes a matter of life and death. We don't need trigger happy suburban commandos plugging vacuum cleaner salesmen cause they thought he "looked like a terraish!"

Peace propagates peace and war propagates war.

People hold grudges, and its hard to look at your neighbor that tried to kill you or your family and say "Hey, its ok, water under the bridge, and all that right?" It usually takes a few generations of peaceful co-existence after a conflict to really get back to normal living. There are people here in Oklahoma that still can't get past the Civil War. Can you believe that?

Time heals all wounds but the wounds of war, death and violence take extra long to heal.
