Thursday Theories – No Theories

With everything going on in my life in the “real world”, I didn’t have the time or the mental energy to really go and research into anything. What I’ve done instead is I’m going to write a list of some of my personal theories. I believe that I have done this before, but maybe not for a while.

  1. I believe that bigots, any kind, are scared, of the “unknown”. (It’s not a excuse to harm others)
  2. I believe that people who have privilege, don’t understand what cancel culture even is, or pretend to not get it.
  3. Not so much as theory…but…The moment you become a bigot, you automatically do ‘cancel’ any good work you’ve done before. Hitler was popular because he kept his promises and helped Germany to pay back the debt from WW…You know before the “incident”.
  4. In all honesty, and I know I’ve only been streaming for about a month. But I feel like the older you are, the better you would do at streaming. Like the younger streamers seem to get really caught up with, quiet frankly, trolls. Or even when someone asks a innocent question and they go off on them.
  5. I believe that people who say “It’s just my opinion” Truly know that they are wrong. Still can’t wait for that one to die in a fire.
  6. I don’t think Boris Johnson, actually cares about anything. Other than what he can get out of being PM. He’s different from Trump, in that, Trump finds the power intoxicating. Whereas Johnson is like “whatever…I got Brexit through”. Do you know what I mean? From what I’ve seen, it seems like Johnson just lets his Ministers do what ever they want, and he just backs them.
  7. I believe that Brian Laundrie parents, know where Brian has been. If these remains are his remains, I am never going to assume that his parents knew that he might harm himself. But one does have to remember, these are Brian Laundrie’s PARENTS. Personally, I would be trying to get my son to turn himself in and talk with the police. If he ran away, I’d be horrified by that, and I would still be trying to turn himself in. But I also get what these parents are doing.

Thursday Theories – The Justice System

The Justice System, in most countries is probably the scariest real life horror!

This post isn’t going to be necessarily the hundreds of thousands of misjustices that the justice’s systems perturbates onto people. That’s why these posts are called theories, in reality, I think the whole Justice system in most countries should be just overturned. There are so many flaws and problems.

I am a huge crime show fanatic and the biggest reason I love them, is because 95% of the time, justice does happen in some form or another.

One of the more disturbing shows that I’ve been watching recently, is a show about how people who have been let out on bail, or parole, end up killing, hurt, assaulting someone while out on parole. What they take a look at, is to see what these previous people have done and why they were let out too begin with…What disturbs me, is that I have no clue why they were even out on parole. You’ve got serial killers and rapists, out on parole. Yet, Joe down the way, is in jail for life, no parole, because he got caught with Canabis three times.

Then they complain that they have to let these serial rapists and killers out, because the jails are overfilled … Uh, let Joe out.

The show is based on Australian crime, and as such, we apparently have three (3) levels of whose considered a risk, so there is: Low, Medium and High.

As one of the parents roughly said (whose daughter was killed by a rapist out on bail). “It’s the word risk that bothers me. It doesn’t matter the level of risk, if anyone is a risk, even if they’re a low risk. It means they’re still a risk to the public.”

The other program that I watched, years ago, was about the “West Memphis Three“. The case was about three boys, under 10 (I think) were killed in 1993. Three teenage boys were charged with their murders, and found guilty. Now the whole thing about this case, there was no evidence that the three teenagers killed the boys, and weren’t anywhere near them at the time of their deaths. But they MUST have done it, because they were ‘into’ Satanism.

“And without substantial physical evidence, police zeroed in on a pair of teens they knew well: Echols, a self-professed Wiccan who wore all black and read Stephen King, and his best friend Baldwin, who was considered an outsider because of his love of drawing and bands like Metallica.

In the beginning, everyone believed that the teenagers had done it. But in the end, even the families of the boys murdered, didn’t believe they had done it. Even though, it was pretty obvious that a lot of people believe in their innocence. All the “Justice System” could offer after decades in jail, and knowing that Damien Echols, was close to being put to death.

Was not a re-retrial, what they offered was a deal. They plead guilty to the murders, the three now adults, get freedom. But they can’t sue anyone, they can’t do anything really, other than get “Freedom”.

“The Alford plea is a seldom-invoked and somewhat confusing legal maneuver, but the basics are fairly straightforward. Essentially, it allows the accused to assert their innocence while pleading guilty, conceding that the prosecution has an overwhelming amount of evidence to procure a conviction.

How screwed is a system, that they don’t want to even consider relooking at the murders of three children, under the age of 10? They would rather stroke their egos instead. Even with the WM3 “released” the case is still considered close, so no one can look into it and WM3 are legally still accused of murdering them.

And these are just TWO cases. It would be a never ending blog.

Don’t even get me started on how, in the UK, in 2021…That “legally” rape is only, when its done with a penis. Even though when you read the legal definition for women literally raping. Though they don’t use the word rape in the definition. There are words and terms like “forced” and “non-consensual” So…you know…rape. Although there was a young girl, I think she might have been 15, maybe younger, who was charged with rape.

Thursday Theories – The 10 Commandments…Court Room or not?

This post was inspired, after reading a friends post on Facebook, about anti-vaxers of all things. This guy wrote a really relevant point about how it’s because of anti-vaxers and anti-maskers that we’re all in the position we’re in. How throughout History people have always complained about the Government “controlling” us. He even mentioned about how in the 80’s there was a article of a man who got a ticket and he was complaining about how the Government was trying to control them. The reason for the ticket? He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.

Someone agreed with everything he said, except that they thought the 10 Commandments should be in a courtroom.

What are the 10 commandments?

  • I am the Lord thy God: thou shalt not have strange Gods before me
  • Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
  • Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day
  • Honour thy father and thy mother
  • Thou shalt not kill
  • Thou shalt not commit adultery
  • Thou shalt not steal
  • Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
  • Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife
  • Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s goods

As you can probably tell, after reading through that last. Only three of them are actual crimes. I do include:

Thou shalt no bear false witness against they neighbour.

Only because you can take that as perjury, which is a crime. So not even half of the commandments are even a crime. These would have only been Christian crimes, back in the day. They are not necessarily other Religions “Laws” or Commandments. I believe that someone people don’t even have to swear on the Bible, if it’s not part of their Religion or Belief system. I think it’s called “Affirming” rather than swearing a Oath.

Believe it or not, I actually have no issues with Religion, or Beliefs, in theory. Most of them are all about loving. And just loving your God or Jesus, or your Deity…Except for the Ancient Greek and Rome, but then they (I believe) were trying to make the Gods and Goddesses “relatable”.

We live in a Multicultural society, whether some people want to accept that or not. It’s not all about the Christian God.

5 ThingsTuesday: Feelings / Emotions you felt most often during the Pandemic — Salted Caramel

The Covid 19 Pandemic is far from over. It has been around for 14 to 18 months (depending on when it hit your region). This is long enough for you to recognise the feelings/emotions you have experienced most often. Desolation When the first lockdown was imposed in my city in March 2020, it came at […]

5 ThingsTuesday: Feelings / Emotions you felt most often during the Pandemic — Salted Caramel

Over at the lovely Dr Tanya (Salted Caramel) she has asked this week (on Tuesday though…For 5 things Tuesday) 5 Things Tuesday: Feelings / Emotions you felt most often during the Pandemic” Now normally I might write these feelings in the comments. However, I decided this time to make a post about it. I think I’ve said bits and pieces how I went. And please head over to Salted Caramel, to write about your feelings and emotions =D

When it first happened, the first emotion I felt was uncertainty and for most people to begin with, there was a lot of that. Within my own circle though, even though everything was new, most people were able to keep their job. So, for a lot of people around me, nothing changed that much. However, I was a casual and had lost my job, because of COVID, my/our contracts just happened to end at the same time. At that time, we thought when everything “calmed down”, we’d all be asked back. Apart from myself, nothing really huge changed. I did lose my dog, my job, a baby tooth and I had to get a new handbag. None of those had anything to do with COVID.

So it wasn’t until about September/October last year that I even started to really depressed. That was because it became really obvious that none of the casuals were being hired back. They hired all new casuals. I don’t know why, but that’s what they did. This when it really started to hit, as a casual, I’m used to not working and the Government had finally brought is some more relief payments. At the time I was getting as much money as if I had worked at work for about 3-4 days full time. So money wasn’t a issue. My partner was still working, my Mum was still working. I don’t actually know anyone who lost employment due to COVID. When I realise though they weren’t hiring us back. That’s when it started to hit me.

One of the saddest I became (apart from my dog obviously) was that all the Libraries were pretty much shut for a couple of months. Which for myself was a “annoyance”, I love taking a walk whether or not I’m returning books. I also love just walking around seeing if there was anything else I’d like, also no one had…or still has…a working printer. The Libraries had a skeleton staff, so we got any books we took out, for longer. I ended up reading books that I had bought, but hadn’t read yet. I think I missed the atmosphere of the Libraries. Most of the time, if I was going to the Library, I would go and have a look in the equivalent to the 99c or $1 type stores. It’d be like a little trip out.

I was happy though quiet a few times, because I thought my partner and I would drive each other nuts. We got on really well though. I don’t live with my partner right now. There would be times though, where I had to stay with him. So there would be times, where I would be happy.

Inspire/ aspire/expire – SoCS, Oh Little BumbleBee

Oh, little bumblebee, how you inspire me,

Too flit and flutter from tree to tree (flower doesn’t rhyme),

How I aspire to be like thee,

As you buzz and bumble through,

How I wish, oh little Bumblebee, how I wish,

I could flit and flutter, spreading seeds, regenerating the earth.

Little Farmers of the Earth,

Oh but little Bumble bee, one must stay away from me,

for if you were to sting me.

We shall both expire.

Thursday Theories – Humanising the COVID 19 virus

In all honesty, it’s the only thing I am trying to give people any “credit” for. Are these anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers, trying to humanise a virus?

Every time I hear one of them speak. They keep acting like somehow the virus will just go away on it’s own, or it wont affect them or their “loved ones”. It’s weird to see. Does anyone else see it too? When I first started to write this post, I had things to show, but since I started this post last week…I knew that I should have just posted the links.

Too myself anyway, some people act like the virus wont affect them, if they just wish hard enough…and that’s not how viruses work.

Melbourne tradie who was in ICU with COVID urges protesting construction workers to get vaccinated

This guy was diagnosed with COVID, and then the next day, collapsed. He ended up spending two weeks in ICU.

Mr Chellia is one of more than 150 people linked to a cluster of COVID-19 cases at a Box Hill construction site.

He believes he contracted the virus after unthinkingly shaking hands with one of his colleagues, who was refusing to wear a mask.

“He said, ‘I’m a superman — I won’t get it,'” Mr Chellia said.

“After that, he got the virus, I got the virus, my other colleague got the virus.”

But Mr Chellia feels particular guilt for passing coronavirus on to his four-year-old twin daughters.

I find anti-vaxxers even weirder than Trump Supporters. You are NOT Superman. You are human and this virus can get you. Considering how many of them say the rest of us are living in lala land. It’s a pretty big statement to say that you’re Superman.

Do you know what I mean? They’re acting like humans are invincible, like they’re on some “noble” quest, like the Holy Grail, and they just can’t see what fools they are. If someone came up to me and said “I’m Superman, I will survive this”…I would slowly backwards from them.

Okay, maybe they’re not trying to humanize the virus, they’re just trying to super human themselves.

Thursday Theories – Oh, I can call you worse than bigot

If you read my post on Monday, this sort of is a run on from that. So The Times, instead of posting about that on their front page. Decided instead to run a anti-LGBTQIA story with everyone’s “favourite” transphobe, Rosie Duffield. She declined to attend Labour’s conference, after being worried that she would get “told off” for her anti-trans views and words. The Times decided to calling trans people and their allies, trans extremists.

Fun Times, also, everyone should stop buying The Times.

So this one person, who just decided to ignore the truth. Were calling people like me, a violent misogynists, because we were calling out Duffield’s bigotry and calling her a bigot. Before they blocked me, I said to them that women like her are the problem with the UK.

Believe me dear, I could call Rosie Duffield worse words than a bigot, here are a few:

Patronizing

Degrading to women

Gaslighter

Pathetic (Seriously, can you imagine MLKjr just not turning up, in case he got told off)

Weak

No Shower

A Patriarchy Protector

Coward

Cowardly

I’ve had rape wished on me (by a large account that Rowling followed) called a groomer and a pedophile

I

STILL

SHOW

UP…

I know I’m in the right #Transisbeautiful Can you imagine MLKjr just not “showing up” Because he might get told off? Rosie Duffield is no MLKJr. That’s for sure.

What I would like to know, is you do have any words or terms that are may be a little more funny, but still “insulting” I spent the rest of that night, dealing out William Shakespeare insults…and it was a lot of fun!

Thursday Theories – The Music = My Country

I want to change this post a little this week. Over this week, I was listening to some songs that make me nostalgic for how I think my country used to be, and how it should be.

Music is a different form of communication, it can make us feel so many different ways. It can invoke emotions that we sometimes forget are there. What I am going to do this week, is post five songs that make me “sappy” for my country, Australia. When I hear these songs, it reminds me that there is something beautiful still in my country.

I would LOVE for you all to either pingback five songs of your own, that represent your country to you. Doesn’t matter why. If you don’t want to do a whole post, then please post in the comments, the songs you think represent your country to you. If it’s your country’s anthem, go for it!

When I was in America, I sometimes would listen to this one song on repeat:

I mean, everyone and anyone whose anyone, thinks this should be Australia’s National Anthem:

You are very much missed Peter Allen ❤ ❤ ❤

This one, speaks a lot about what’s wrong with Australia. Especially with the treatment of Australian Aboriginal People. You can’t have the good without the bad. On a funnier side, this is the video that made a lot of men scared of Peter Garrett, because of his dancing, haha.

Look … I know AC/DC, Kylie Minogue, INXS, etc. Are Australian bands/singers, do they have songs that make me think “Australia”. That’s fine. This isn’t a list of what Australian bands and singers are my favourite. These are a list of songs, that make me think Australia and make me love Australia. Not sorry, but Kylie Minogue doesn’t have one, lol.

Thursday Theories – If a Alien life exists, that’s older than human life … Would they be progressive?

Would they be more civilized? Would they be smarter and kinder?

Judging by human beings … I say no. You can say yes, but here’s why I think no.

One, Aliens would have to be VERY different from humans, and I don’t mean “Dr Who” Time Lord type “alien”. It’d have to be completely different.

You take a look at current countries, like the UK, like Scotland, like the US, like China, even Afghanistan. These are all countries that have a LONG…LONG…History behind them. Yet, they are probably some of the worst countries “human rights” wise. How, as an example, does the UK, with such a long History behind them, still end up with Boris Johnson? How does in 2021, the UK and Scotland, end up with such rampant racism, transphobia, sexism, hypocrisy in BOTH major parties? HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN!

Like Churchill was a old racist, but at least, he got his people through. Johnson is racist and so is his party, but also he’s not gotten the UK through literally ANYTHING, without it being a complete fiasco.

How does a country like the US, whose entire reason to leave the UK was because they wanted to practice their religions freely and without persecution. All these years later, end up electing people who want their people to be like the people they were escaping in the first place? That’s why the forefathers had the “FORE”-sight “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”

But then you look at a young country like New Zealand.

Strongly progressive with a lot of modern issues. The amount of people who want to live there, would probably be more than any other country.

So would a older culture than human beings, and possibly older than the Earth, be more progressive? Be kinder? I personally don’t think so, haha. If we judge anything to do with Earth and Human Beings, then no. This is why I’m saying for “aliens” need to be more and completely different than human, to be progressive.
