Amateur Hour In Oklahoma

From Album 5
I think what bothers me the most about this is first, the sheer eagerness to kill...sure, the condemned was a monstrous creep, but why are they so amped up that they couldn't wait a few more days or weeks? Second, the inevitable "well, it wasn't as bad as what he did to his victim." As to the latter, no, it wasn't. But "not-quite-as-bad-as-a-heinous-convicted-murderer" a really, really low bar.


  1. OK, I cannot keep this polite. as the empire falls apart, the US IS an empire, it will lash out at any and all it sees as an enemy. It enjoys killing. Don't think so? Then explain the (ig)Nobel "peace" Prizident having hie Tuesday meetings to go over HIS kill list to "decide" who on that list to kill each week.
    Yeah, 'Merikkka IS addicted to killing, and as long as who "we" want dead ends up dead, well then,
    "we" don't give a flying fuck in hell how it gets done.
    Michael, I do, really, wish I could have not resorted to profanity here, but, damn, some times nothing else really does the job.
    hope you and yours are well.

  2. Nothing wrong with profanity if that's, well, the appropriate response. What gets me about this, though, isn't the family and friends of the victim. If someone I loved was murdered, I'd want to simultaneously go medieval and nuclear...but...that's why we have laws instead of honor feuds...and that's why those of us NOT personally involved need to, um, keep any rage in check. I understand even some anger -- murder is an affront to civil society -- but the ugly rage and gleeful gloating is...a sign of something sick lurking inside of those expressing it.

    Anyway -- I'm gonna celebrate May Day, even if I did go to work. Kick back, relax, and have a cold one...or a few..

    Take it easy.
