Misplaced Agression

Something has been bothering me lately.

See, recently i know of some peeps that got a divorce. These peeps were very close to me. Seems person A in the divorce was unhappy with person B, and said that after all their years of marriage person A never was happy, hated person B, told everyone about how bad person B was, destroyed person B's reputation with many of person B's friends in town irrevocably, and continues to complain about person B's role in person A's marital disatisfaction and blames person B for the disunion.

Now here's the kicker. Person A and B also have a child, who I will name Clara. Clara is a very dear friend of mine, and Clara tried her best to help person A and person B work out their differences (yeah that was wrong but Clara thought it was her duty at the time). Now listen to this: Person A gets all wigged out over Clara's need to talk about the pain and try to work things out, so person A and Clara have a big emotional fight and sever their communications.

Time passes. Person A and Clara tried once to work things out, but it failed. After that, there was no communication. NOTHING. NADA. NO WORDS. NO ACTS.

Now here's what I just don't get. After a couple years, person A has many times trespassed on person B's property (person A has given up all rights and privileges to the property in the settlement) and person B clearly does NOT want person A there. Yet person A continues to try to make amends: person A leaves gifts for person B, person A calls person B on the telephone. Person B has since remarried and has a new family.


Wouldn't you think that after several decades of an unhappy marriage where you just totally hated your spouse, never was happy, had NO GOOD MEMORIES (direct from the horse's mouth), and totally demonized and destroyed someone's reputation... wouldn't you think this person (person A) would just leave person B THE HELL ALONE?

And further, why would person A continue to bait and taunt Clara by telling her person A can only allot 30 minutes on a freaking phone call to try to make amends because person A has been HURT too much by CLARA? And even then, to tell Clara that person A has spent 2,000 dollars on therapy "just cause person A loves Clara?"

GIVE ME A #*%KING break!


and lets not forget the close to 10k CLARA and CLARA's spouse spent on therapy to get through her parent's problems, not counting the missed paychecks from work leave because of the emotional turmoil this crap caused.

in this day and age 2,000 dollars, in the world of therapy, is NOTHING. that's like a month of sessions. That is, unless you're paying 10 bucks a session to some half-wit half-rate "empath" who gives you a license to do whatever the hell you want just to keep you coming in and giving money. Is there a formal degree on that counselor's wall? I doubt it.

And why even be so hesitant to make amends with your own child, when AFTER YOUR LIFE WAS DESTROYED by your spouse you're so hot and bothered to set things right with him/her?


Why isn't person A trespassing on Clara's property to make amends? Where's the phone calls? Are two conversations where you tried to make amends more hurtful and destructive than ~four freaking decades of marriage with a "MONSTER"?

Can anyone explain this to me?

The God That Failed

Seems that old bonehead Abu Musab al-Zarqawi posted an audio message on an Islamic (terrorist) website stating that the hurricane Katrina disaster on the gulf coast was an answer to the prayers of Iraqis and Afghans who have suffered under U.S. occupation...

all I've got to say is...

Is that the best your god can do? I mean come on! No fireballs from heaven? No earthquakes? No plagues? No visions of avatars striking our citizens blind?

I guess when their way of life is destroyed, their god only cares enough to push around a few poor people on the coast and wipe out the Big Easy? Wouldn't you think their fanatical crazy half wit "bring death to all infidels" dashboard Allah would rain holy fire down upon all of us?

Don't get me wrong here. There are good muslims everywhere. I'm only pointing booger-coated fingers at the crazy nutjobs. And yes, before anybody wastes their breath and spit flaming I know there are nutjobs in every religion. But this is one of the nasty-muslim posts. Nasty-christian, nasty-buddhist, nasty-hindu, nasty-druid, and nasty-whatever posts will come later. But with all decent Allah fearing muslims aside, seems if that's all that Zarqawi's god can do then I want a refund. I was looking forward to my 70 virgins in the afterlife. But if he can't pay for a good miracle, how can he pay for 70 clean virgins?

Rosemary Is For Rememberance

Well we all know what day this is. We all know we have to remember it. We all know why. Maybe starting a blog for myself on this day might help me cope. What? I still need to cope? Four years and I still need to cope? Of course I do. How can I go on when my gov't keeps telling me to be afraid. Yeah go out and have fun, just duck when you see the flash or hear the siren. Give me a break.

Lots of people dead, and what have we got to show for it? A bunch of dented armor and beat-up humvees, and blackhawk helicopters that you couldn't get half price for at a farm auction. The bodies might not be piling up as quickly, but really, how do we know? We only know what they tell us. But for those of us with a brain, this war looks all too familiar. Too damn familiar.

That's what happens when you throw your food off the high chair just cause you're mad. It hits the floor, and you can't eat it. So what do you do? You scream. You scream and hope mommy or daddy will give you new food. But there's no mommy or daddy here, and our food is attracting flies.

And all this for those brave souls who died at the WTC. I don't know about you, but after I'm dead, I hope my president doesn't destroy a country because of it. Well he wouldn't anyway since I don't own an oil field, but I'm just saying, even though it sounds cool and all, 1,000 people to my one death just ain't worth it. I don't care if they DID crap all over me and set me on fire.

Well, how many people died on 9/11/01? I'm not trivializing it: it was a tragedy. But what about the next tragedy? 1,500 plus american troops dead? Isn't that a tragedy? OH NO, people say. THAT'S THEIR JOB. Actually, no it isn't. Last time I checked, they were not defending the borders of their respective states. The unfortunate thing is half of them are so afraid to stand up and say anything about it, or are too brainwashed to do anything about it. Just like the rest of the corn-fed populace in the stable.

What about these poor folks on the Gulf Coast? Isn't that a tragedy? Probably not, since they were non-whites (yes, I agree with the New Orleans mayor). President Bush in his operation do-over tried to make it look like he cared, but what could he do? Well what would you expect? Twin towers got attacked and he sat and read a book about a goat, upside down I might add, to kids. What more can we expect?

At least Al Gore paid out of his own pocket to fly peeps out of there. Good for him. I guess Bush couldn't do that though, cause after running three or more companies into bankruptcy your credit just ain't that good. Well, what credit the man has. I mean, I'd trust him to ruin something, or tear down something, but to be creative? Not unless it's finding new creative ways to fail.

I was expecting Pat Robertson to get on his high horse and say that New Orleans asked for what it got because of the sins of Mardi Gras. I guess he knew better, after he got in trouble for asking people to pray that our liberal judges on the Supreme Court died. Yeah yeah he said later that he didn't mean that, but give me a break. How else can you replace judges? Sure they can retire, but do they? Historically? Come on pat, just own up to the responsibility. Get some balls and support your argument. Be like your other buddy, the other Pat. Pat Buchanan. At least he's got the nerve to make a stand.

I was glad to see the Onion report that the Louisiana National Guard was helping in the rescue of people by calling in 911 from Iraq. When Bush said he was sending in "regulars" to help in disaster relief, I thought, REGULARS? Shouldn't they be the ones dodging bullets and disarming mines in the fertile crescent? Well what more can I expect? I'm not trying to insult the National Guard, but when it comes to conquering a country, wouldn't you send your regular army, and not the people who just do it 2 weeks out of the year so they can get a good college fund and benefits? Hmmm... maybe that's why we've taken so many losses in that war. But then I don't really know. Are we losing that war, you think? What is the price for an election going to be?

Freedom Of Ranting and Raving

Some people call it Freedom of Speech, but it seems in today's society the freedom doesn't really exist. Well, here it does. This is my blog so I can say whatever the hell I want, and if nobody likes the diatribes of Captain Fatbody, then they can simply click away, or as I like to say, CLICK OFF. Anyone can reply or comment on posts, but if you flame, just know that I'll simply flame you back, and probably make you cry. Please direct all verbal assaults toward me, not to other people simply commenting on posts.

Again, if you don't like this, just leave. Chances are I wouldn't have liked you anyway.
