Why would “They” put a Falling Down Fountain at Ground Zero?

9 Sep

To simulate Hell?

To simulate the buildings falling directly down?

To simulate the planes making nose dives to the ground?

Could “they” not think of any good above ground fountain options?

Going to Heaven, conquering amazing hardship, the thought of God’s help which is considered by society as UP?

Is the fountain designed to bring out the most emotion to who sees it? Down is Hell……

The fountain has water cascading over a wall which falls into a pool and then into a middle is a little square which also plummets down!

Seems like a suggestion of Hell to me!

I wonder how the family’s of those that died at Ground Zero think of this?

Should Congressman Anthony Weiner’s Wife Get an Abortion?

11 Jun

If you have not been following this story, let me get you up to speed on the scandal.

United States Congressman Anthony Weiner “was” a rising star within the Democratic party. He is, (as of today anyway), a US Congressman with aspirations of running for Mayor of New York City.

Congressman Weiner, like many politicians has a Twitter account. Twitter is a social networking website where anyone can sign up and post little snippets of what they are doing, or their thoughts (called “Tweets”), and anyone can “follow” them and read their Tweets. Twitter is the newest and probably now the most used social networking website in the USA. Facebook was the most popular but I believe most of Facebook’s popularity is now outside the USA. I blogged about Twitter a few blogs ago if your not familiar with it.

Mr Weiner, apparently, and now confirmed, admitted a few days ago in a press conference to cheating on his wife, through Twitter, by communicating and sending pictures of himself naked and sexually aroused to several women.

When the scandal broke, Mr Weiner, at first denied the photos were of him. However as more and more photos came out, and more and more women starting coming forth saying he sent indecent photos of himself to them as well, he admitted the photos were in fact him and he did it.

And this is where the scandal becomes very sad and the topic of this blog. It has been revealed that Anthony Weiner’s wife is approximately 3 months pregnant with their first child.

The question I have is, should Anthony Weiner’s wife get an abortion?

It’s not too late. 3 month term pregnancy’s are performed all the time.

If she is to keep the pregnancy, what lays ahead for her and the child? Her husband and father of the child is a scumbag. The trust in the marriage is gone. What do you tell the child, the reason you and your father got a divorce is because your father sent lewd photos of himself sexually aroused to women he did not know. The child most certainly will be picked on, teased, bullied growing up because of their father. Growing up is hard enough without this “baggage” always as part of your identity!

Anthony Weiners wife is an innocent Victim! Does there have to be another innocent Victim brought into the world when a choice can be made now?

Is it not better for her to cut her losses, get an abortion, divorce Congressman Creepster, and start over? I say yes! I’d advise her to tell everyone that she had a miscarriage, and just have an abortion.

I don’t believe that “life” starts until a child is born. I believe in the “right to choose” for women. The embryo is just that, an embryo and not a person until it is born.

Is it not better, to make a decision now to avoid what is to come in the future?

I Was Once A Great Warrior! Superhero and Problem Solver to All!

21 May

I was once a great warrior! The problem with taking a warrior out of the war is that he is lost.

For as long as I can remember I was great in intense situations. Always the one who stepped up to take on the crises, the danger, the bully, the out of body situation, with a clear head and decisive action! I was good! I was the soldier, the leader who could identify “in slow motion” what was needed and decisively direct others and act myself in a swift way to a positive calm outcome!

I was a warrior! Superhero!

And with the few of us in life who have that metal edge, when moments of being not needed to save the world, called into action, “downtime”!…….we lose our edge! We fall into depression and self destruction. We isolate ourselves, for our former warrior lifestyle was fed by directing others to solve the task at hand, the crisis.

Without the crisis we are very disappointed in humanity. People are weak. People suck.

‘Rambo First Blood’ was all about this. “Back there I used to be responsible for dozens of the best men, and million dollar machinery, back here I am nothing”!

‘Apocalypse Now’, when Martin Sheen was drunk in his dirty little bedroom, and his higher ups came to find him is another good example of a warrior in down time!

‘Patton’, when George C. Scott said, “I’d be proud to lead you guys in battle, anytime, anywhere”!

I don’t have any “larger than life” media type credentials in my past which would distinguish me to someone who does not know me as a warrior, and someone who has “the edge” in life. Other than those that knew me and relied on me to solve their life problems. I was an athlete in High School and College and always won the game with a winning home run or winning sack of the quarterback. I was the one who people pulled into the bathroom at parties for me to solve some issue. I was the one when fights were about to break out would step in and take on or diffuse the aggressor no matter his size or the situation. After college I entered the business world, and I was always the one to tackle the largest, most stressful crisis or most difficult customer. I did the dirty work that no one else wanted to do. In life, I have been the one given the task to tell others their family member died. I have been the one to tell girlfriends and boyfriends, husbands and wives, their significant other doesn’t want them anymore. I have called CEO’s out of the blue and crashed Presidential candidate meetings and had discussions with world leaders and policy advisers of Israel and other middle eastern countries leaders. I have dated super-models, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition models, Ambassadors daughters, Kings granddaughters, Senators daughters, Professional sports legends daughters, and have lived life like few others!

It has been some time since I was in the “war”, and able to be me! Not a military war, but the war of life. It is like I was captured by the enemy and the enemy has kept me in solitary confinement!

There is no conclusion to the blog post as the journey is not over which only comes in death. Maybe a “war” will rear it’s ugly head and I’ll be called back in action! I can only wish not! For, I believe in the good. The good in people and all humanity. But, I know differently. People are bad for the most part. I wish it were different. Those that have, want more. Those that have not, want more. It is a very ugly want, take, want, take world. I don’t want to be part of it. But I am!

“‘You are NOT in Kansas Anymore’ EarthZebra!”

1 Dec

Can I call myself EarthZebra without it being weird? Probably not!

Moving to any new area takes some time to adjust, but moving to a different country is sure to involve some definite culture adjustments!

For example, everyone is so nice here (or are they)! I’m thinking they just might be more sneaky and not so much “in your face, tell it how it is”! Hiding their true thoughts in exchange for a pleasant smile.

One of the most wonderful things I loved about living in New York City was that people were real. They told you how they felt almost to a fault. You always knew where you stood by which finger gesture you were greeted with! No, monkey-footing around things, life was real, raw, and well, Nice! It was honest and true, and you always had a clear direction in interacting with other people. In fact, the only bad thing about living in Manhattan was the tourists (probably from here!). Ha!

In any event, I’m making the best of it here so far. A smart person told me recently to look at the bright side and make the best of it, so that is what I’m doing. After all, this is paradise, right? Everyone is so nice, right? There is so much to do, right? Life could be so much worse, right? I’m healthy, somewhat happy, and with little drama, right? How could I possibly be anything other than ecstatic and in a zen bliss each and every moment, right? If only someone would call me a C-sucker, or a M’Fer, or say KmyA! Where is a good insult when you need one most! Ha!

Here are some random photos of my day today!

Apparently mailing an envelope back to the USA requires it to be decorated like a Christmas tree! It was too funny, after 10 minutes of this girl licking every stamp for me (which never would have been offered in NYC and I accepted today from this kind girl), I finally had to take a photo of the event!

My daily look! Everyone stares at me here like an alian. Not sure why! Yes, yes, had to go wee wee and thought I’d snap a quick “washroom” photo. Not sure why they call it “the washroom”, as there is not a bath or shower anywhere in it! Notice the chiseled jaw line, and fine handsome frame on this young chap! :)!!

The cleanest urinal I’ve ever seen! No graffiti or bubble gum! Besides, every blog needs a good urinal picture so decided it would be this one!

Apparently buying cheese can be a 20 minute adventure! This gent decided to turn a simple question of where is the Havarti into a picture worthy moment today! Here he is giving directions to a different part of the store for I think charcoal..not sure where this entire conversation went as I checked out mentally long before we got to the 19’th minute! Is that my F’ing cheese in your hand already, just give it to me and let me be on my way! Too Funny!

Ok, that was it today, for the most part all good. We shall see what tomorrow brings and what if anything these fake nice people have to say or turn into a photo opportunity!
