Sarah Machlachlan or Black Sabbath?
Yes. Both! I like them both, anyway.
I'm a hawkish dove. trying to be an owl.
save the puppies and kittens, and blow up the terrorists! It's the same thing. Well, trying to be. Pro-life, pro quality of life, death to death-dealers...
in the arms of the angels...
fairies wear boots...
If only terrorists could all be locked up instead of murdered as enemy combatants, so they could:
fight fires, pick up trash,
read and write books, make/record audiobooks
earn degrees, do science,
scare people straight,
(empower themselves through body-building
and teaching/learning martial arts)
be contributing citizens,
live happy and productive lives...
instead of indirectly causing the deaths of non-targeted civilians (as collateral damage, unintended consequences), which is in today's (Huffington) news.
I saw a video on fb of a hawkish series of bird's eye video of drone strike explosions set to Black Sabbath, supposed to fire me up in patriotic fervor and pride in our bad-ass military, eliminating American-enemy 'ragheads', who don't know who the hell they're fucking with.
It's an ugly world, and this kind of thing can be viscerally satisfying, but it's not working, it's creating more enemies and ill-will, and it needs to stop. It's overkill, and unjust, and basically evil. The military culture (kill em all, let god sort em out?) behind this illegal, immoral, unethical drone practice (if not policy) isn't humane or compassionate, it's criminal. The dark side is a bitch, I know. But even soldiers shouldn't be allowed to kill with impunity (despite what 'Be all you can be' might imply).
here's another article (on schizophrenia), which I guess is relevant..
