Captain’s Log 5,638
My morning person-ness is starting to bother even me. WAY too much energy first thing in the morning. Before 6:30 this morning, I had managed to fill the bird feeders, fold a load of laundry, start another load in the dryer, put away dishes, make coffee, sweep the floors, water the plants, make more hummingbird nectar, disinfect the hummingbird feeder, sweep the patio, make my bed, iron my pants, and tidy up the living room. Some people don’t do that in a whole day, and I had done it in less than 45 minutes. Something is wrong.
Something is also wrong (for real) with our justice system. A black woman in Florida gets 20 years for firing a warning shot against her abuser in self defense. A black teen in Florida is killed in “self defense” and the shooter goes free. The shooter will also get his gun back. Pardon me if I don’t grasp this well. She fires a WARNING SHOT and gets 20 years. He shoots a kid point blank in the chest and walks away. Umm…….. How is this fair? This is so damn sad. I guess the best thing to do if you are feeling threatened is to kill the person who is allegedly threatening you. That way, nobody can argue the point. This may hold true with all misunderstandings. If I don’t like the neighbor’s dog barking late at night, I should just go shoot the neighbor in “self defense” of my peace of mind? Or should I shoot the dog? Or both the dog and the neighbor? The broad application of twisted logic just doesn’t make sense with the barking dog or the Zimmerman case.
This is why I could never be a lawyer. I would be like Atticus Finch sitting in front of the jail all night with a shotgun across my lap.
And…..you could bring a damn GUN into the Texas capitol but you couldn’t bring in a maxi pad or a tampon? How about a gun that fires tampons?
You thought I was kidding
I fail to see the logic in these things. As I get older, logic become more important to me. I always thought if I became a logical I would lose my sense of artistic freedom. I realize how that the application of logic in defense of these asshats is the only way to maintain my artistic freedom. It is time once again to bite the sharks.
