volcanic eruption

i cannot believe the discussion going on over at youtube around the death of sally ride. some bloody idiot is spouting hell and sin and if you don’t believe in jesus christ that you are going to hell. have some bloody respect. i’m surprised they haven’t blasted her for being gay and having a partner of over 27 years who, it has been reported, does not receive any of the government benefits as a person would who is straight. that strikes me as something people should be concerned about, and that her partner has lost the woman she loves. i wonder if the westboro baptist church antichrists will be being disgusting at sally ride’s funeral, the way they plan on disrupting the funerals for all of those who were killed in the shooting spree in Aurora, Colorado.

if you haven’t heard of the westboro baptist church from florida, definitely google them. they are the lowest form of life on this planet. you may first have heard of them from the Matthew Shepherd funeral. he was just an innocent college kid who happened to be too trusting. when he was hanging out at a near by bar, minding his own business, these two pathetic men coaxed him to come with them. without getting too graphic, they tied him to a hitching post out in the middle of nowhere to die after they beat him into that condition. there reasoning is that he was gay and coming on to them.

they were just good ole boys, homophobic til the end. Matthew’s parents told the court they didn’t want them to get the death penalty even though they killed their son Matthew. that’s when the westboro baptst church appeared more visibly on the scene. they tried to disrupt and condemn Matthew and blame him for his own death because he was a homosexual. there has got to be a law put on the books to protect us from such mean spirited trash as these people are. they even protest at soldiers funerals saying terrible things. they don’t give a shit who they offend or hurt. they should first not be allowed to have church status and second they should be prevented from being closer than ten miles from any funeral for any person who has died in the way the people they protest against have died.

i am just very angry that such people walk this earth and use whatever perverse thinking they have messing around in their brains and go out and disrupt in such a horrible fashion such sacred moments for the people who are left behind from such tragedies as Aurora or Matthew Shepherd or soldiers dying in Afganistan or Iraq or protesting any other kind of tragedy. these are very sick people who need to be kept away from society.

Westboro Baptist — the church that cries picket
quote from article below. click on article title to read the rest.

You know what they say: The darkest moment is always just before the Westboro Baptist Church shows up.

If there is one thing that most of us can agree upon as a nation, it is that we do not want the Westboro Baptist Church to come to whatever event it is we are having. Barbecue? No, thank you. Funeral? Please, no. Family reunion? We’d prefer to sit near creepy Uncle Elmo with the glockenspiel collection.

Whatever it is, we do not want the church members, more emphatically yet when we are gathering in the wake of a tragedy. But that is always when they show up, like cockroaches with brightly colored signs…

first woman in space sally ride died

first woman in space sally ride died
by jennifer kiley
Age: 61 (5/26/1951 – 7/23/2012)

stars in a cavernous space

sally ride was a special inspiration and hero to many girls and women, has died at 61 from pancreatic cancer. it took courage to enter into what once was a men’s only club and you showed them you could not just do it but do it better. you went up in the Challenger twice. isn’t that fortuitous.

sally ride’s death is so very sad. she was so young and could have had so many more years to enjoy and live her life. too many people are dying from cancer. pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly it seems. it is always a shock when you hear of someone so respected and loved by their country and hopefully the world for being the first woman in space. that is a remarkable feat in its self. i remember the first time i heard of sally ride. it was just prior to her going up in Challenger. i thought that was the coolest thing in the world for someone from my sex doing such an amazing thing. going into space. space travel has always fascinated me. as you can see by my banner above my blog site. the universe and beyond. infinite imagination. eleven universes with infinite numbers of infinity. she went out there and came back. which as we know now, tragically, that isn’t always a guarantee.

so i say this is all very sad. sally ride was way to young to die. she was so young. may she RIP. You, Sally Ride, may your spirit soar throughout the many universes. you will be missed by us all. thank you for the gifts you have given us all. my condolences go out to her partner of some 27 years. may she find solace in the love we felt for Sally.


no guns or weapons anywhere

no guns or weapons anywhere

if this were real and dropped all over the world that would be the end of us. what is the difference between losing one life to all losing every life? stop guns and weapons that kill and don’t they all have the power to do just that – KILL. i don’t want to die. do you? end the violence-get rid of the weapons. they all can kill someone or something. don’t let it be you or someone you love. the violence must stop NOW!!!

We should abolish guns in this country the US. The writers of the Constitution did not mean for us to go around killing each other. The bearing arms amendment was meant for the purpose of taking care of our country if the government became a tyranny or was being overthrown by a hostile force. It was never meant to mean everyone should be armed so they could kill total strangers or anyone else.The police shouldn’t even be armed unless in an extreme situation. We need to learn in this country by example from other countries like England where their police do not even carry guns. If there are no guns then no one will be killed by bullets. Protecting yourself can be done in other ways. Being robbed is not worth losing your life. Let them have what they want and leave you alone. If it became impossible for anyone to have guns then death by gun would cease. The writers of the Constitution never meant for people to have guns so they could kill other people for whatever reason. To reemphasize, to bear arms was meant to protect this country from being turned into a tyranny or protected from being taken over by outside forces or even inside hostile forces. this is not a carte blanche for everyone to be armed and go around thinking they can kill anyone for any reason like protecting themselves. if you or the robber or trespasser do not have guns then no one dies from bullet wounds. so stop it everyone. no more hiding behind the words of the Constitution like hiding behind the Bible to explain away your reasons to be homophobes. So put the arms down and stop using the Constitution as a reason to have guns and the most outrageous super killers to be in anyone’s possession. Hunting is another matter but even there one does not need a super killer or a handgun to kill an innocent animal. Why not use a bow and arrow the way the Native Americans did. At least if you must kill innocent animals give them a fair chance. Guns are not necessary for any reason. They should be abolished all over the world. And other weapons that kill people should follow right behind them.
