      Wow, it has been ages since I last wrote a journal entry. I don't know why I am so anti-journal, I guess I tend to forget to update people with my happenings while I just kind of troll around and check on my friends. Or maybe it is because I am a slacker, that could be the case. But, anywho, I am alive and well, just in case anyone was wondering.

    • Terrorism

      terrorism (tr-rzm) Pronunciation Key Audio pronunciation of "Terrorism" [P]
      n.

      The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.



      Often I have wonder the meaning of terrorism. For some people when this word is mentioned it brings up images of middle eastern people loaded with guns, anti-tank rockets, and bombs. This then brings them to the patriotic aspect of the war that is going on and that they feel the USA is finally attempting to bring terrorist to justice.

      When I hear people discuss this idea of "The War on Terror" or when I hear the politicol leaders spreading their propaganda on how we must win this war it brings me to start looking at a deeper meaning of the word terrorism. As the above examples explained the meanings I started to look at how are country is taking it's own approach.

      America has accupied Iraq for some where around five or six years now. In that time there have been countless civilian bombings, "mishaps" as the government calls them, the degradation in the prison camps, and US army presence everywhere, people have been snatched out of their homes under the suspicions of being a terrorist, and so on. This is not decreasing the population of terrorists, but is encouraging more people to become terrorists for they have no other ideas to remove the USA from their country. All in all the USA has used excessive military force against Iraq with the intent of forcing it into a western country controlled by the US.

      There is also another side to this. Yes the US was attacked by a terrorist organization, and it was indeed a terrible thing. But whatever happened to Al Qaeda, wasn't it located in Afghanistan, and wasn't the leader Osama Bin Laden? Wait, weren't some of the Bush family's closest friends and business partners Bin Laden's? Interesting connection, wouldn't you say? So then why did we invade Iraq to root out the terrorists that attacked us on 9/11? Sure, there were claims of WMD in Iraq, did we find any? That seems to have been a big thing with the US for a long while after 9/11, we were always under some sort of high alert, but nothing ever happend. Could the administration have stopped other dangerous terrorist attacks, or was it just the administration playing into the fears of the people. That is another part of terrorism, threatening people to make them do what you want. Sure the administration wasn't out right threatening the populace, but they were greatly exagerating the possiblility of being attacked again. So much so that people didn't want toquestion what was going on, they just wanted to attack someone to feel as if they were doing something to make a difference.

      So, in my eyes the USA is just as much of a terrorist nation as many of the other nations out there, sure it is not preying on it's own people, but it is doing it's own share of slaughtering around the world. My question is why are we fighting terror with terror, all it does is breed more terror, just like fighting fire with fire brings about more fire. My feeling the only way to dramatically decrease terror in this world is to turn 180 degrees around in our handling of the current debacle in Iraq.

      (Sorry for my mumbo-jumbo ramblings here, something that president said about not leaving Iraq until we won the war on terror just irked me and I had to get it out, thanks being patient with me)

    • Those Certain People

      Do you ever meet those certain people that, at first seem to be kind and considerate, even though you know that they have some issues? Then after you get to know them and become their friend they turn on you. They are nice to you to the point where you would feel guilty about leaving them in the dust. Then they turn on you, they start using you as a resource to get the things they want without considering how you feel and take the things that you are doing for them for granted. They start swearing and cussing at you if you don't do what they want, or even if things don't quite go their way. If they can't do something with the group they get all pissy and miserable and make the group suffer for as long as they can. They attempt to use your money to buy things even when they have their own. Or they know you need to get somewhere at a certain time nearly everyday, yet, everyday they are late and then take even longer when you say that you need to leave.

      I know these people, and I'm just glad that I won't have to deal with all of their BS and fake drama after Tuesday. For I feel underappreciated, over used and very uncaring towards what happens to them. Freedom will feel oh, so good.

      A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of Peter at the
      Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked,

      "What are all those clocks?"

      St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on earth has a
      Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move."

      "Oh," said the man, "Whose clock is that?"

      That's Nelson Mandela's. The hands have never moved, indicating that
      he has never told a lie.

      "Incredible," said the man. "And whose clock is that one?"

      St. Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have
      moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life."

      Where's Bush's clock?" asked the man.

      St. Peter responded, "Bush's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as
      a ceiling fan."

      Sarge: No, we go in line. It goes you then me, then Simmons, then back down to me, then you, then me, then me, then Simmons, then me, then me, then Simmons, me, Simmons, you, Simmons, me, me, me, Simmons, you, me, then me again. It makes perfect sense.

    • Friends

      Friends, what would the world be like without them? I know people with a crap load of friends, I used to envy them, I used to dream of everyone wanting to hang out with me. Now I realize I wouldn't have known what to do with myself. I like to spend individual time with my friends, I'm actually not all that great in large groups (more than three), I tend to close up and just listen and not input anything. Sure with large groups of friends you might be able to find someone to hang out with all the time, especially if they are all in your area. But friendship isn't the number of friends you have or spending alot of time with your friends, but making the time that you do get count. Quantity is by far most important in this game that we play called life.

      I have few very close friends and a few more just friends and alot of acquaintances that I'l probably never talk with again. Those few close friends though are what make everything count in life, knowing that they care and that they are willing to listen when it's needed.

      For those of you that are out there for me, you have my most gracious thanks just for being there.

      It's going to be one heck of a weekend. We just got back from Vegas on the fourth, it was an interesting trip, we didn't spend near enough time in Vegas and I would like to go back. THe main reason for the trip was to go to L.A. for a wedding, so we were driving all over.

      Anyway, this weekend, well starting tomorrow, I'm going to be at one of the biggest SCA events in this area, Warriors and Warlords. It'll be great, we are staying all four days and I'll be able to fight this year w00t! So, yeah, I'm just a little excited. I'm a bit rusty with my rapier, so I'm expecting to be impaled horribly for the first little bit until I work the rust off. So, yeah :)

      I know its random, but I was just wondering what you are taking as a major? I am going into my senior year of high school, and I am really confused about college right now. I have no really passion, but I go to a Trade school and I am taking drafting, I was thinking about going into Architecture or something along those lines. How do you know what is right for you, and what you want to do for the rest of your life?
