The “Suicide” of Jeffery Epstein

 

Jeffrey Epstein

According to some “journalists”, the conspiracy theorists are out in droves this weekend over the sudden death of Jeffery Epstein. Everything we read online from any mainstream media source tells us, immediately, that Epstein committed suicide. There source for this? None. Even AG Barr has only commented on the death and has not called it “apparent suicide” as so many in the media are reporting.  It’s really silly reporting as, of this writing, no one, not even the Medical Examiner, has declared a cause of death. Am I a conspiracy theorist? No. I prefer, before anyone makes a pronouncement that the facts come to light.

Belief Does Not Equate to Truth

One thing I try to keep in mind when I’m on social media, are the numbers of people that will switch on their outrage engine at the slightest provocation. I usually try not to cause any controversy but sometimes, that is impossible to accomplish based on the content of my timeline on Twitter sometimes. I am often astonished at the numbers of people that are willing to believe absolutely anything, as long as it sits neatly within their political or social justice basket. Some will make the most outrageous statements, that appear to be fact based, but never offer anything that comes close to proving their statement. I see these tweets retweeted sometimes in the thousands.

Dealing With Preferred Pronouns

I’ve been noticing for a while now that people online, ot all but the number seems to keep growing, list in their biographies their  preferred pronouns. If any are unaware of what that is, it is how someone wants to be referred to as to their gender. so we’ll see “she/her”, “he, him”, etc even though the pronouns may have no basis in fact. I think that’s okay as that individuals should decide hw they wish to be referred to by others. It seems a bit silly, but hey, we do live in strange times, don’t we?

The Rise of Online Narcissism

I’ve always been a fierce advocate of Free Speech. I believe that people should be allowed to say what ever they want, on any subject, without fear of retribution of any kind. in fact, for those that don’t live in the country that I do, it’s part of our founding document, our Constitution, expressed in the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to that document. It’s curious, and notable that the very first amendment guarantees that Congress shall make no law… with respect to our freedom to speak as we like. Of course, there are exceptions in that promoting violence against another is illegal, and should be, but beyond that simple restriction,  we may speak our minds. No one is given the right to not be offended.

My Way or the Highway

Let me instruct you patiently how and what to think. You need to be instructed in how to use your own words, because words are weapons and may cause damage to another person. I’ll teach you why everything you believe is wrong and that only those that have the correct opinion, should be allowed to speak on any topic. We may disagree on the details, but I’ll work with you to make sure you understand that those details are generally unimportant and that facts that may dispute my opinion are only from those people that have a toxic agenda towards me and my fellow believers.
