Murder, Ominous Parallels, and the TSA

Greetings and hallucinations.  I've got something a little different for you today.  It's something to listen to.  It is a segment of audio from a radio show at Radio4All that I listened to a week or so ago and cannot get out of my mind.  I  listened to it again today and afterwards I noticed that my body felt as if I'd been crying my guts out for hours, but I haven't been crying. 

This story is about a 25 year old guy, somebody's brother, somebody's son, who was brutally murdered, shot dead in the street by a militarized cop using an assault rifle.  The young man's name was Julian Collender.  He was unarmed.  He had no criminal record.  He had not committed a crime.  But that's only the beginning of this real life horror story.

I want to put this up here for you to hear for yourself, even though it's not a happy thing.  It's a real thing.  This is war. This is Baghdad. This is Palestine.  Except for that this is Brea, California. This should not be happening but it is and not just in Brea, CA but all over the country.

Those whose idea of a perfect world being one in perpetual war are in charge of this country.  This story of one family's total devastation and horrendous treatment by authorities is only one tiny snapshot of what it's like to be on the receiving end of American imperialist authoritarian arrogance. All done to feather the bankster's vulture nest with capitalism's most basic and lucrative industry: war.   Here's your Neo-Con-Zionist/Nazi ideology in its natural state, brutal and inhuman.
It takes my breath away.

The Ominous Parallels
Speaking of brutal and inhuman I would like to recommend some further listening.  The Vyz is recording chapters from a book entitled “The Ominous Parallels: The End of Freedom in America” which you can find here.

The book was written shortly after WWII and it goes into great detail about the Nazi philosophy, if you can call it a philosophy.   The gwbush regime literally did a play-by-play straight out of the Nazi playbook, it's no accident nor is it my imagination.  I assure you I could never imagine any such things on my own, it is there in the open for one and all to see, if you can see that is.   Those who can see, will see what I see, what the author of the book saw.  It is definitely worth your contemplation.  Whether or not you agree is not the point, the point is to consider the facts in evidence first and then decide what you see. 

Which leads to the next logical step in today's equation, the lovely and wonderful TSA.   I will never set foot in an airport again, and I knew that way back when they brought us the silly ass shoe bomber and exploding toothpaste or whatever nonsense it was that  changed flying forever.  I cannot tolerate idiocy when it comes to my person or my life and I won't tolerate it.  I don't have to tolerate it because I said so.  It is my life and these are my rules, like it or lump it,  I'm the only person on earth who gets to make my rules.  If I went to the airport I already know that I'd have a very serious problem with naked body scanners or getting felt up by complete and total strangers, and I know myself well enough to know that I would not be able to control my anger, and that would land me in jail or worse.  So I won't fly again, at least not as long as the TSA is terrorizing flying America with their assinine WOT tactics aimed at us instead of actual scary people doing harm to innocent people.  I'll take a bus or train or drive my car instead of flying, and I'm fine with that.   As airlines continue to lose revenues they might start paying attention to why.

The TSA is the natural product of an out of control, corporate worshiping, developing police-state control grid.  What the TSA is doing is clearly not about airport security, nor is it about keeping anyone safe.   We're as safe as we're ever going to be, with or without any TSA at airports.  We the people are not the terrorists but we'll have to stand in for them because you see, there are no terrorists so the state has to create them.  It does this to justify itself and the money it uses up and all the rest of the horrendous useless shit it gets up to.  Big "security" is very lucrative and it is fun as hell to be bullies and thieves with badges that can do anything they want and never be held accountable.  They are not going to give that up, not without one hell of a fight.   

Creating your own enemies is standard behavior with false authority.  True at airports, true at war.  We have no honest to goodness enemies to make war with so we create them as needed with our unconscionable behavior, always done in the name of our own vainglorious goodness.  We are supposed to buy the flatulent, offensive nonsense about our own heavily armed invasion forces being the good guys and only those who don't appreciate being invaded being the baddest of the bad guys.  The worst you'll hear anyone in the media say about this howling outrage is that our dear government is well intentioned but horribly inept.  They're not evil, they are only mistaken and clumsy in their endless quest to deliver freedom and democracy around the world.  Even when it's perfectly clear that 'freedom and democracy' must mean something very different to them than to the rest of us.  To them it means millions of people standing in ankle high rivers of their own blood amidst the radioactive dust and rubble of what used to be cities, apparently.  Because that's just so free and democratic.

There is a pretty much zero percent chance that any person in the USA boarding an airplane on any given day, or every single day, will be armed and/or bearing explosives.  We the working class people are not the problem.  We were the victims, remember?  Electronic rape of every man, woman and child and the truly horrific treatment by TSA power-droids of the traveling public doesn't even make sense.  If actual airport security was the point and aim of the TSA, what they should be doing is questioning people about current or prior military or police enlistment as these are without exception the grand shooters and murderers of innocent strangers in large numbers in public places.  Period.  It's never anyone's wheelchair bound 92 year old grandma, or six year old little boy or girl, or ordinary working class dad or mom.  

The TSA's game show is such an inane waste of money, man hours, resources, time and energy that it's shockingly stupid.  If 99.9% of people at the airport are already known to present no risk or threat to anyone, ever, then why are they wasting any time at all looking at those people?  Shouldn't they put 99.9% of their time and energy looking where there really are terrorists?  You know, good old fashioned police work.  But that's just it, there are no terrorists, that's why they have to go out and make them up and frame them.  How many times have we seen it already?  The FBI/Police, whoever, go out and pick some young and stupid petty thug and drive him up the wall offering him lots of money if he'll agree to take their bomb and blow something up with it.  It's clear cut entrapment, meaning there is always a zero percent chance any of these railroaded patsies would ever blow anything up on their own.  They don't have the brains, the desire or the skill to do anything more complex than snatch purses or six packs.  The TSA is not only doing everything except making us feel secure, it is so destructive of legally protected rights, of our human dignity, of basic freedom and obligatory two-way respect that it's clear that the entire TSA is not what they claim it is.  It is the proverbial 1984 big black boot on the backs of our necks grinding our faces in the dirt forever.  This is their idea of security?  Well who is being made secure by all this?  Oh right, They are.  Not us, them.  

The TSA is there to let us all know that we are nothing, but authority is sacred.  Your life is irrelevant.  So is your grandmother's life and your wife's life and your child's life.  You are an insect who will obey every command given to you by authority, and obey it immediately and fully, without hesitation, with no questions asked, no matter what you are "ordered" to do or you will be made to pay.  Comply or die. Think I'm kidding?  Do not cling to any fantasies about your freedom, you are not free.  And don't test it unless you're in the mood for the Julian Collender treatment yourself.  They may not take your life, yet, but they will take everything else they can from you.  Your dignity, your self-respect, your God given rights, along with your sense of justice and common sense, security and well being, not to mention your freedom to say what you think and do as your conscience dictates.  To these people your conscience is irrelevant.  Any form of non-compliance with the heavily armed thugs in uniforms is not for the greater good and so exercising your conscience makes you the enemy.  In other words, doing the right thing makes you the bad guy.  That's how the Nazi "philosophy" works, and how the TSA works;  the individual does not matter beyond whatever good he can do for the greater cause.  Life is cheap in Nazi land, and now it's cheap in America too.  Ain't freedom and democracy great?  I'm sure they would be, if only we could try them out.

Since I'm broaching this subject I may as well take it all the way home.  The next time you hear some TeaParty-er or anti-Obamarino stomping their feet about taking their country back, ask them if they've been on an airplane recently, and if so, did they go through the Rapiscan (Rape-iscan) or get the EMCABG (pronounced "em-cabbage") Enhanced Molestation Crotch And Breast Groping?  Because if they say they had no problem at all with being electronically raped and made into an insect by dim witted authoritarian thugs, tell them the entire blame for the state of the nation is on their shoulders.  That's right, their own shoulders.  It's also on their shoulders if they hated the idea of being body scanned or felt up by thug perverts but in order to avoid inconvenience or embarrassment, they just went ahead and put up with it.  They're even more to blame.   This is where the rubber hits the road.  This government is never going to do what we won't let it do.  It can't.  What it will do is push, and push and push and it will go exactly as far as we let it.  If we let it tell big, fat lies and force us to become like stupid barnyard animals, stripped of dignity and legal rights for no legitimate purpose, then they'll do exactly that.  When it's placed in your hands, when it comes down to you, what do you do?  Refuse to be treated that way or bend over and take it? 

It comes down to one decent person at a time standing for what's right and refusing, flat refusing to put up with any shit from the government whatsoever.  Damned right that comes at a price, hello?  Is that a newsflash to anyone?   So when this or any other similar situation lands directly in your lap, when it is placed directly into your hands, into your life in real time, and the question is, will you stand for what you believe in or will you snivel and fold like a puking, mewling dog... and you opt for the dog role, then honey you're what's creating these thugs.  You're what's creating this whole nasty ass system.  If you're not willing to die to protect your God given rights I can assure you nobody else is going to do it for you.   

At the airport Americans are shit-canning freedom and democracy because it's too inconvenient to do what must be done to retain them.  Instead of saying, "Don't touch my junk or I'll have you arrested", and not getting on the damned plane, they are saying "Okay, I'm too dumb to know for sure what's mine and what isn't yours, I'm as cheap and easy as you want me to be, so help yourself to my dignity and rights.  Look at my wife naked. Feel my wife's breasts and my kid's genitals, go ahead, because I'm too much of a spoiled pussy to do what I damned well know is right.  I am an insect."   

Really, stop blaming Obama and liberals and everyone but yourself.  If you refuse to stand for what you know is right then what you'll get is whatever they give you, which is exactly and precisely what you'll put up with.  So maybe you really are an insect.  And isn't it ludicrous for an insect to complain about governmental abuses?  Yes it is.  I rest my case.


Last but not least, a lighter note to end this on.  You'll like this, I promise.

See ya later.   Dressed, I hope.

Broken Wheel

I won't deny it, sometimes I can get dang depressed about the endless stream of evil things happening in our bruised and broken little world, much of the worst of which comes at the hands of our own dear incorporated govmint.  I can also get sorely depressed about my own personal life; I could give you a whole long list of things that have gone wrong, mistakes I've made, things that should never have happened but did happen, encounters with predators and thugs of all kinds, getting ripped off, used and disrespected... you know, life.  I have taken my share of damage, maybe more than some maybe less than others, but damage happened.

It can be painful to understand accumulated damage in retrospect knowing there is nothing I can do about it now.  I can't go back in time and relive something and make sure it comes out right this time or make sure it doesn't happen this time, or be braver this time or less gullible, whatever it is that I think would have kept me from taking on another brick in my private wall of hurt.  A private wall which, my guess is, everybody has. 

If you're living you're going to get hurt, in fact if you're not getting hurt you're not doing much living.  Private walls encircle us all, built from the bricks of life experience.  Maybe we use these walls to protect ourselves but it's just as likely they could imprison us instead.  A real danger lies in becoming so imprisoned behind our private walls of pain that we can no longer see anything beyond them; all we can see are those awful bricks, each one imprinted with the indelible story that placed it there.  It does hurt to lose irreplaceable things like time and health and trust and hope, fill in the blanks with your own words.  It can be hard to sit in peace with the knowledge that life shouldn't have been this way and it wouldn't have been this way, if only...

If only what?  If only we'd had different parents, a different family, a different education?  If only we'd been born in a different place, or in a different time?  If only we'd had enough money to overcome some of the uglier roadblocks to happiness, maybe then we wouldn't feel like we got into a fight with life and lost.  But would any of those possibilities really have prevented us from getting hurt in this life?  Honestly? I very much doubt it.

Being undermined, used, cheated, lied to, violated... again fill in the blanks as you please, these kinds of things shouldn't be the structural underlying factors of anyone's life but I'm sorry to say, I think they often are.  It would seem they'd provide precious little to build a life on.  Wouldn't you think that only by extricating oneself from these types of things could one begin to clear a space for a personal foundation on which to build an actual life?  And wouldn't never having these things crop up in the first place be even better?

It would be like the difference between being handed a broken wheel at the start of a race or one that isn't broken.  A broken wheel is useless.  You don't know how to repair it.  You don't have the knowledge or the skills to know how to fix it but unless you can make it work you won't be going anywhere, so you have to try to do what you can.  You try this and that, it doesn't work, time whizzes by, finite resources are strained to depletion.  You take bad advice from good people and bad advice from bad people and end up with things worse than they already were.  You are painfully aware that you must fully invest every bit of yourself just to get that broken wheel into a basic, usable state while in the meantime you're not covering any ground, you're just continually struggling with a frustrating situation that is only made worse when you can see the guy next to you getting handed a beautiful brand new wheel that is not broken; and he sets it down and hollers, "Weeee!" and off he goes.  It's doubly insulting when you know the guy is a moron and a genuine jerk. 

For that guy, deserving or otherwise, life is good.  He probably can't conceive of what it's like to be handed a broken wheel that doesn't work and won't go anywhere and you can't fix it and it all sucks and never stops sucking.  He has no frame of reference for that sort of thing, it isn't in his life experience.  He may not be a bad person at all, just a person who has zero understanding of something he's never been through himself.  Which only makes sense.

But then again, maybe he knows full well that he just got handed the sweet and easy ticket to success.  For him, other people's troubles and their broken wheels are their own problem.  He's probably even glad that your wheel is broken.  Hell, plenty of people out there spend all day long trying to figure out how to break other people's wheels.  They understand it's an unbeatable handicap to run in a race against people who have no feet.  Some would even hire others to cut the competition's feet off and there are always those happy to show up and take the money and do it.  Think Nancy Kerrigan for a literal example of that metaphor. 

Dishonorable people are a dime a dozen in this world.  It grinds my craw (whatever a craw is) whenever I see people like that win, and the fact of it is people like that win all the time.  Crime does pay.  It pays extremely well.  In fact, it's the only thing that does pay extremely well.   You and I were told just the opposite, we were told that crime never pays.  That was just one of the million lies they tell us during our formative years, and that one's right up there with "Wonderbread builds strong bodies in 12 ways".    The criminals of culture are experts at breaking other people's wheels if nothing else.  They excel at pulling off dirty deeds and they're never bothered by conscience over it.  On the contrary, they're very pleased with themselves.  The real geniuses at it can turn abject filth into some noble sounding thing and people will not see the filth and will instead give them a standing ovation and a prize.  I'm telling ya, it is scary out there in the real world.  Things are next to never what they seem and they are definitely never what we're told they are.

It doesn't seem right that bad people win so often.  Where is the justice in this universe when nasty, mean and selfish people take all and good people have to suck mud and die?  That might well be the question that spawned conformist religiosity so long ago;  and who else would step in to play the lead role and answer that question but the very same people who made folks ask it in the first place?

I put it to you that this obnoxious, offensive paradigm is status quo with our species.  I'm saying this is nothing new, in fact, it's as old as the hills.  It has always been like this no matter when you were born or where.  It would be very rare and unusual, if not impossible,  to not have to run the whole gauntlet of oppressive negative forces restricting most people's lives, confining every life to be lived inside boundaries that are invariably asserted as real and legitimate when they're neither, defined as normal when they're not, and set and enforced by external, unknown others without you getting any say in the matter at all. Society at large simply accepts this status quo, and not passively.  They deeply accept it at face value and believe only what they are told to believe about it. They will attack anyone who actually thinks about it, analyzes it or questions it.  They will also happily kill anyone who refuses to be enslaved by the lies and manipulations that turn entire nations into intellectually and emotionally disconnected children living inside grown up bodies.

What a set up.  It's an eternally repeating loop.  It's the perfect recipe to protect those who feed on others, those who lie, cheat, steal and manipulate while simultaneously ensuring a steady supply of willing victims.   The parasite clown kings of earth hoist themselves and each other onto all the highest of the high public pedestals for every last sheeple to look upon and worship.  All it takes is walling in the minds of people from childhood, never showing them anything beyond the props that are used in the daily production and denying there is anything beyond those props should anything else be inadvertently dragged in.  The mind is thus imprisoned, and when it is imprisoned it ceases to be, because when it thinks it knows all there is to know it stops thinking.  It stops asking questions.  It stops seeking.  It stops learning.  It stops caring. And it resists worthwhile change.  Change would mean the answers you already possess are wrong.  A shut off mind can't adapt.  It cannot change.  That might be why bringing new information to the old table is often a total waste of time and can be about as welcome as the plague.  All the hard facts in the world won't penetrate the brain of someone who has stopped thinking. 

Are you with me so far?  You are?  Great!  Then roll down your socks into ankle donuts and follow me back to the broken wheel scenario. 

It is flat understandable that being handed a broken wheel in life can cause some serious unhappiness.  Especially when we can see the blatantly unfair way that certain other people are predictably and invariably handed beautiful brand new unbroken wheels. But here's the thing. Did you ask for a wheel?  Did you desire to be entered into someone else's race?  Are their rules of any interest to you?  Do they mean anything in your life? 

Why would you want someone else to hand you a wheel in the first place?  Especially when it's clear that what they're handing you is a rigged game, a handicap, something that will hold you back while helping someone else win this rigged race?  It's a perfectly good question to ask, what's in it for me?  Who's game are we playing here and why? 

It is true that for the most part we don't have much choice about being in "the race".  If you want to eat, if you want to fit in, if you don't want to be called a loser and a freak and be rejected from inclusion in the action and activity around you that does everything from get you food and shelter to friends to sex to love to choices of ways to spend your time and life then you are essentially forced to get in the race and pedal where they tell you to go. But you don't have to buy into it and you don't have to believe in it and most of all you don't have to accept it as it is and just go along. You don't have to take anyone's broken wheel onto yourself.  You can say, "No thanks, I'm making and using my own wheel, it's one of a kind and it's mine all mine".  If you're a thinking person you have to get to the point where you realize what nonsense everything in the phony rat race is and how truly little the blabbering, posturing, plastic circus of fools have to offer that has any real value, substance or meaning.  And I think when you realize that, that is the moment, or at least the beginning of the metamorphosis, that honest to goodness sets you free. 

You can't get to here without going there first.  Broken wheels open your eyes. Then you can finally see. What matters is not what they're doing out there, but what you think matters.  That is an immovable truth that "they" cannot do anything about.  They know this, it is not a news flash by any stretch.  They know it exquisitely well.  They know that all it would take to blow their whole False World of the Parasite Clowns to pieces is enough people thinking like this. With enough people seeing right through them not a shot would need to be fired.  No riots would occur.  In an atmosphere of peaceful silence, their games and all of their lies and senseless ways would become like melting snow.  They would no longer control the race.  They would no longer control the outcome.  They would no longer control anything.

But that will never happen.  At least not in my lifetime.  I don't see much chance of millions of people who can no longer think on their own getting to the point where they can see truth they've been told does not exist.  They are literally hypnotized and can only see what they're told is there to see.  Love those people, be kind to them, but don't waste time trying to jump-start their minds, and don't turn your back to them because they just might drive a knife through it.  Why?  Because instead of thinking and perceiving the world around them, they live in perpetual fear.  And nothing gets fearful people more excited than something coming along that sounds like change.  Different is bad, it doesn't matter a whit if it's true.    

If you think about it, it only makes perfect sense.  If you don't know anything about the world you live in beyond what you've been told by others,  you will live in fear.  People fear the unknown, and the real world that exists beyond their own lives is literally unknown to them. They would deny that of course, but that won't change the fact.  Ignorance or denial or even straight out dishonesty cannot change what is true.  What is true will be true whether we know it or not, or like it or not, or agree with it or not.  It will be true even if we deny it is true.  It will be true even if we say something else is true instead.  Nothing we do will touch what is true.  What is true cannot be changed by anything we say or do.

This is probably why so much time, energy and money is spent on covering up, literally burying what is true and then asserting that something else is true instead.  It is most often done by laying something else on top of the truth to partially or completely obscure it.  When people ask, "What is true", they will point and say, "Here is where the truth is, come and see it for yourself.  We will show it to you".  And they will point to where the truth is said to reside and people will look and what they will see is what has been laid on top of the truth.  Then they will say, "Now we know what is true". Only they won't know what is true and they'll probably never figure that out.   It's not exactly impressive or complicated to throw a whole lot of people off the trail of truth.  It is devious and dishonest though.  And it's par for the course.  Anywhere there is money flowing, there is a sea of bullshit to float it on.  Show me one exception and I'll eat my hat.

But you know what?  I think that deep down inside people know they don't have the real truth. They just can't stand the idea of it.  A shut down mind doesn't want anything to change.  People usually don't like change anyway,  at least not when the status quo is comfy enough to tolerate and the rewards for playing the game keep coming in.  A state of ignorance is a matter of will, not a matter of truth.   Deep inside where truth rings like a bell, they don't hear that ringing.  They hear lots of circus music and talking heads and assertions played on endless repeating loops and they're told that unless everything stays the way it is then everything would fall apart and chaos and anarchy would turn the planet into literal hell.  People see the finger pointing and stage-show posturing, but they don't hear that ring of truth.  The closer they get to noticing that and asking themselves what it means, then the closer they get to the most important fork in the road of a lifetime.  Do they strike out on their own and begin searching for the truth, or do they choose to remain ignorant by dismissing all available information and demanding they are right and everyone else is wrong?  If they decide to remain ignorant it is because it pays to remain ignorant.  It's much easier, it is effortless in fact, and since you're making everything up as you go then you can also make up the idea that you're right.  If they decide to strike out on their own and hunt for the truth we'll probably never hear from them again because they'll be dang busy for the rest of their lives.  Regardless of the choices made, the truth will never go away.  Ever. It will always be there, it is always there to be discovered and understood.  Ignoring it won't change it.  Denying it won't change it.  Hiding it won't change it.  It will always be there.

Are you sure?

What's up with software makers having their programs ask you if you're sure you want to close a program?  When you click the "X" in the corner of a program window, or when you navigate to the drop down menu and choose "Exit", what happens?  Does the program close?   Sometimes it does but sometimes it doesn't.  Sometimes instead of just doing what you told it to do, it asks you,  "Are you sure you want to exit?"

Why does it do this?   Why wouldn't I be sure?  What manner of bizarre lingering doubt do software creators imagine exists in the mass mind of humanity that would make it so unlikely that anyone would be unable to determine whether or not they "really" want to exit a software program?  Is this hard for most people?  Do most people usually click the "X" and then ask themselves, "Should I have done that?  Did I really want to exit the program?  I can't tell for sure if I wanted to exit or not.  Oh dear, what should I do?  Help me please."

I am sorry but barring so few examples as to make them not worth mentioning, I put it to you that over 99.9% of the time when ordinary computer using people click the "X" they do it because they are through using the program and want to exit it.  They are not ambivalent about it nor are they confused.  They are not drenched with sweat due to overwhelming insecurity over the decision.  They harbor no doubt or hesitation.  They are done now.  They want to leave.  It is over.  They click the "X".  Why do software manufacturers find this so difficult to believe?

What is the message your friendly neighborhood software selling corporation sends you when you can't even close a silly computer game without everything coming to a halt so that your computer can demand that you make damned sure you know what you're doing?  The message is straightforward.  You are too stupid to properly click things on your computer and you need to be second guessed 100% of the time to make sure you don't do something catastrophic like close your program when you didn't really mean to close your program.  Not that you couldn't just reopen your program if that were the case but ignore that and pretend there's a serious "X" clicking related threat here.  What's the deal?

It is apparently the belief of certain software makers that most people are so pathologically inept and tragically insecure that they don't usually mean they want to close a program at any time, including when they purposely move their mouse pointer all the way across the screen way up to the uppermost corner where they have to carefully align the mouse pointer directly atop a little bitty "X" and then click on it.  Software makers are certain that nobody means to do this. Ever. It is always an error when anyone tries to close a program.   Yet by the same token these very same software companies feel perfect security in the ability of people to know for sure when they want to open a program, because there is no such thing as a message asking if you're sure you really want to open any program on your computer.  So... no one ever opens programs they didn't really want to open, they only close programs they didn't really want to close.  Is it just me or is this truly bizarre thinking on the part of software companies?

It would seem that some software companies are convinced that there could never be such a time in anyone's computing life when they would be done using the software.  This is an inconceivable situation to these companies, many of whom themselves never, ever close any of their computer programs.  Ever.  It would have to be a gross accident, a mental blip, a moment of total stupidity for anyone to actually believe they were done using the software program.  You are never done using the software.  Do you understand?  Never.  You don't have a life.  You don't have other things to do.  No.  What would be normal, reasonable and expected is for you to sit at your computer twenty four hours a day for the rest of your life using the software. "Why would anyone ever want to close any computer program?", they seem to be saying. 

Why would anyone click the "X"?  Are you sure that's what you want?  Are you sure you know how you feel?  Are you sure you know what you think?  Do you need help making sure that you can think all by yourself?  You may think you're done using this program right now, but are you?  Shouldn't you think it over and reconsider that idea because it's probably wrong?  You are too dumb to know what you want.  We're here to help by telling you how dumb we think you are over and over and over again. 

This is not only not helpful, it is scary.  Not to mention insulting.  It also makes little sense. On the average, how often does it really happen that people close programs when they didn't want to close them?  Does it happen so often that the best course of action is to save people from their own hopeless stupidity by making them confirm they want to close a program 100% of the time before the program allows them to do it?  I don't think there is any evidence to support that.  At all.  None.  In fact I would say that it is so unusual that people accidentally close programs that it's not even worth the time to calculate the percentage of times out of a thousand that it happens.  Besides, even if it does happen, so effing what?

What does a software maker care if I accidentally close a program when I didn't really want to close it?  Does it affect them in any way?  No.  It is irrelevant to them.   I really don't see the logic in this strange setup or any reason for it other than to perpetuate the insulting and untrue suggestion that computer users are too stupid to open and close programs of their own cognition within any acceptable margin of error.  It is arrogant and impertinent and they can kiss my unamused butt.

Ever heard of personal responsibility?  If I close a program accidentally and lose work then I learn not to do that again.  It might happen again, but it won't happen very often.  I am sure this situation is best left to the individual experiencing it.  I'm not seeing where software manufacturers feel the need to be included in or to prevent this sort of personal learning curve.  It doesn't appear to me to be anything within the venue of writing computer programs. Maybe I'm missing something but I don't think so.  My personal behavior is none of their concern.  At least not on Earth.  Instead of second guessing me maybe they should concentrate more on writing programs that don't crash or go cattywompus quite so much.

Perhaps this particular default was written into programs as a form of insurance for new users, but you know, you can only be new at computing for a very short time, then it's not new to you anymore.  Should operating systems or software programs be set up to cater to the most temporary class of computer users, new users, on a permanent basis?  Who would benefit from this?  Maybe a computer school for new computer users, but no one else.  Not the average home user.  Not the average business user.  So, again, I am confused as to the need for this second-guessing the intelligence of the user being built into software programs and operating systems, and I wish they'd knock it the hell off. 

I feel better now. Thanks.
