Hello

Hello from me....I went hiking again this evening. It felt great. Let's see if I can see keep this up, I have been stagnant for too long and it is time to change that!
Came home, ate cherries and got busy reading stuff online. Came across an article talking about that Kevin Hart might be cheating on his pregnant wife. Ewwwww, noooooo! Cheating on a pregnant wife or significant other? NOT OK. Then I continued reading.....I guess the pregnant wife started out as his mistress when he was married to another woman. Well, that changes the dynamic. There is a saying, "how you get them is how you lose them". Maybe there is some truth to that, I don't know. I personally do not think it is right to get involved with a person if that person is in a serious relationship and you know that they are, whether it is a marriage or a domestic partner situation.
In Sweden many people live as domestic partners and that is looked at as serious as marriage and that is how I view it as well. I would never (never say never but I am definitely against it) get involved with a man that has a significant other.
I understand that every couple has their ups and downs and are not always happy with each other all the time but hello.....that is just reality. And every situation is different, there are excuses to why people cheat, everybody has their own story and bla bla bla.....I know. But no, I no longer feel bad for Kevin Hart's pregnant wife, if he really is cheating on her she is getting a taste of her own medicine.
OF COURSE Kevin is denying everything, denying cheating on the current pregnant wife and cheating on the ex wife with the current wife. What else should he do? Admit? No, most men don't have balls like that.



But sometimes it is probably better to be quiet. If you regret the cheating, feel remorse, got caught up in the moment or a situation but really do not want to jeopardize your relationship.....then why even bring it up? Sometimes people get involved in complicated circumstances. This is a difficult subject. I know good people that have cheated and I have also witnessed some really messed up just wrong stuff that I did not think was OK whatsoever. If cheating becomes something that happens more than once or to really stretch it....twice, then it is definitely a problem.
Now.....another "famous" person got involved with a woman and gave her herpes although he denied having any STDs. That is so disgusting, not having an STD but to lie about being clean and transmitting something knowingly. He ended up having to pay her a nice sum in settlement. First of all he can afford it, so pay up. He should pay her medical bills and for pain and suffering. I would be furious if a significant other would come home and infect me with something, there would probably be some legal consequences stemming from that misstep and perhaps a chopped off mentula. One more thing since I am talking about STDs, there is a strain of gonorrhea that is resistant to drugs. Think about that before you engage in some sort of behavior that can have some lifelong consequences, definitely think before cheating on a significant other.
Have I ever cheated? Yes...I can't talk about others and pretend to be holy myself. Yes but nothing "serious" as in going all the way with another person.
Anyhow....enough of this, I think it is time for some Depeche Mode videos now and then it will be bedtime.....Depeche Mode's Violator album has a rose on the cover. That album = amazing songs. I ❤ Depeche Mode.



Sick World

This world is sick and it is sick because of people. I am reading about that poor man, Otto Warmbier (barely an adult) that made the terrible mistake to travel to North Korea. And returned home in a coma and is now dead. Poor his parents. First of all, WHO wants to visit North Korea willingly? Even if I got offered a large sum of money I would not go there and support that regime in any way. That joke of a "man" in power over there, somebody needs to get rid of him. If you read on the US State Department's site, traveling to North Korea is strongly discouraged because you can get detained for basically anything there. You look at somebody the wrong way and you get sentenced to at least a decade of hard labor and a starvation diet. I feel bad for the people that live there. Completely brain washed and imprisoned within their own country. How can a place like that exist in these times? And what the hell is Dennis Rodman doing over there when he goes to visit? And if you for some reason DO encounter a problem in North Korea you have to contact the SWEDISH embassy over there, since there is no US embassy or consulate there. No shit. Who wants to work there? Now I feel bad for the Swedes working there. I am NEVER giving up my Swedish passport by the way. Yea, yea.....never say never but that is how I feel. I love my Swedish citizenship.
Other places I would not travel to would be places where men treat women like possessions and where getting gang raped by a bunch of sex starved lunatics is almost considered normal. Like India. Too bad because I love Indian food and that country has so much history. Also no interest in traveling to some Muslim countries. No thanks, I do not want to be subjected to that kind of blatant disrespect and be around unevolved behaviour. And have zero rights.
I also don't want to go to places where people think eating dog is yummy. There is a TERRIBLE picture of a tied up dog that I saw today. Paws tied together and mouth bound shout. I want to beat the person that did that to the dog. I do hate people. And also something about that tourists in some place think that they are buying some dish with chicken meat when in fact it's dog meat. How about eating less meat in general? I can't stand that UNEVOLVED mindset that one needs to eat meat every day. NO YOU DON'T!
You will survive without meat - I promise. If you are privileged enough to be able to make choices about what you stick in your mouth.....how about practicing some compassion and kindness too and not ONLY think about yourself for a change? Think about that animal that you are chewing on. Do you care how it lived, how it was treated during it's life and how it died? No? Well, maybe it's time that you should USE your brain and think about something useful.
OK.....I don't hate everybody although I do think that this is a sick world. It does hurt to live. So much misery. I am watching SKAM 4, it is so disappointing that there will be no more episodes of SKAM after season 4. This series is SO GOOD!
I freakin' love all the characters but I especially LOVE P-Chris. How pretty and sexy can I guy get? Me and all the other teenage girls and ladies agree.......although I'm supposedly an adult (nooooo, I want to be 19!) I am very much like a teenager in many ways. And right now my boy crush is P-Chris.



Blue Ribbon, Desmond's Law, Pedophiles & War Machine



Way too often do I read about the single Mom's new boyfriend that abuses and sometimes kills her child. I understand that it must be difficult to be a single Mom.....but once you give birth to that child it should be your number one priority. Forming relationships with a new partner in my opinion should be put on the back burner. For a long time. If you want to go out and "have fun" then arrange for a trusted baby sitter and even a sane baby sitter is difficult to find it seems.
But introducing your child/children to new boyfriends is just not OK. Like I said.....I have read too many of these incidents, so I am extremely opinionated in this matter. Children's well-being and safety should ALWAYS come first. There are plenty of men out there but your children are your children, protect them.
Here are some statistics from brightfutures4kids.org

Child abuse transcends all ethnicities, cultures, religions, socio-economic and education levels.

78% of victims of child abuse related fatalities were 1 to 3 years old; 3/4 of deaths were caused by one or more parent(s).

Every year an estimated 900,000 children in the United States are victims of maltreatment, 18,000 are permanently disabled.

Head trauma is the leading cause of child abuse death among babies. The 100% preventable Shaken Baby Syndrome is a major cause of death, where 25% of victims die and the majority of survivors suffer brain damage.

Child abuse is reported every 10 seconds.

Almost five children die every day as a result of child abuse. More than three out of four are under the age of four.

About 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse.

More than 90% of abusers are people children know, love, or trust.

79% of adults perpetrating against children are their parents.

57% of children will be victims of some form of physical assault during their lifetime.

1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18.

Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults (including assaults on adults) occur to children ages 17 and under.

90% of child sexual abuse victims know the perpetrator in some way; 68% are abused by their family members

Over 30% of victims never disclose the experience to others.

A typical child sex offender molests an average of 117 children.

20% of child sexual abuse victims are under the age of 8.

Sexual abuse is commonly associated with other family problems, such as parental alcoholism, parental rejection, and parental marital conflict.

One more of my opinions.....I am against spanking too. I don't want to hear, "Oh, I was spanked as a child and I am OK." I heard that too from people that got beat up by their parents.....and they use that as an excuse to spank their own kids.
And get drunk around their kids because this is what their childhood looked like. No, it is not OK.....you are continuing the abuse. Spanking for some people would be abuse in another person's eyes.
I have that blue ribbon in my car. I feel sad for all the mistreated children in this world.

Now to animals. Abused animals can now get a voice in court, at least in Connecticut thanks to Desmond's Law. All other states SHOULD follow suit, do the RIGHT thing! Desmond was a shelter dog that was starved, beaten and strangled to death a few years ago. I get a really awful feeling inside when I read about children and animals getting mistreated. The DISGUSTING PIECE OF SHIT that did this to the poor dog is walking free in society.....he got away with "rehabilitation". Charges dismissed, record wiped clean. Do you think he is rehabilitated?
Would you like to take him home and introduce him to your children and your pets? New boyfriend perhaps? Honestly.....I could probably execute people that commit these acts myself and feel completely OK doing it. I can be Jihadi John but for the one's with no voice - children and animals. Animals NEED a voice, people that fight for their rights. I would like to do some volunteer work with either abused children or animals BUT I can't because I would be charged with capital murder. Seriously, I would.

Australia is working on a law to take away passports from convicted child sex offenders because so many of them take trips to Asia to fulfill their sick sexual desires on innocent child victims there. I think all convicted pedophiles should have their passports confiscated and get mandatory chemical castration. Most of them are repeat offenders.
You can't enter Canada with a recent DUI on your record but a convicted child sex offender can travel abroad and continue with his crimes? Is that OK?

And now to War Machine (Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver) that got sentenced to life in prison with a possibility of parole after 36 years in a Las Vegas courtroom the other day. I wrote about War Machine and Chisty Mack a few years ago when that drama had just happened.
http://www.fargosisters.com/serendipity/archives/2289-Ice-Cream.html
In this case I have to say.....the punishment DOES NOT fit the crime. 36 years to life? Christy and the other dude that got beat up by War Machine but they are still alive. People that abuse and murder children, have sex with children and scar them for life, abuse and kill animals get WAY LESSER sentences, some even get away with murder and rape with basically a slap on the wrist and this guy gets 36 years? Hello, WHAT?! And NO, I do not think it's OK to beat women. But in this case I think the sentencing is a joke. War Machine and Christy Mack made a high profile case and he was made an example of. I actually feel bad for him. I hope somebody somehow will see how wrong this is and work on getting him a much shorter sentence. I feel 5 years and many hours of community service doing something useful would be better. And yes, I have read about his prior rage incidents, I think he needs work, in his case rehabilitation after a prison sentence would fit. I feel bad for Christy too, I understand she got severely beaten, it took her a long time to recover and I like her but I don't think this is right.
More statistics from brightfuture4kids.org

Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury for women ages 15 to 44.

21% of women report being raped or physically or sexually assaulted in her life.

I can say this much.....had I caught my boyfriend in bed with another girl there would had probably been some violence involved. Depending on my feelings towards him and the overall situation of course. But I have a hot temper and I would had not just walked away. It is called a crime of passion and often sentencing is more lenient in cases like those due to the amount of feelings involved.

A Glass Of Water

I called my Mom the other day.....for those who don't know, my Mom lives in Sweden a bit outside Stockholm. She told me about a situation that had recently transpired in the neighborhood.
My Mom noticed a couple of police cars outside a neighbor's house and about 8 plastic bags full of stuff close by. She asked one of the neighbors what was going on but the neighbor didn't know. Then my Mom saw the boy, a boy standing by the plastic bags and he was looking upset. So she walked up to him and asked what was going on. She knew that the boy lived there, part of a Muslim family, father, mother and three children that moved in not too long ago. The boy, actually 18 but my Mom thought he was a few years younger, started CRYING really hard when my Mom asked him how he was doing. My Mom is rather sensitive so she too started crying. The boy asked her for A GLASS OF WATER, because he was very thirsty. Ramadan has started and his father would not allow him to drink or eat during the sun being up, that is what dedicated Muslims practice during Ramadan. My Mom brought him water and he drank it and told her that he does not get along with his father, that he wants to live like the Swedish people, that he does not want to be a practicing Muslim, that he does not want to faint in school from being hungry and thirsty. Even I want to cry just writing about this. The young man goes to school, he told my Mom he wants to study and that he has good grades and wants to become a social worker.
And those plastic bags outside the house? That was his stuff that he took with him. He was leaving his family to go and stay with a friend, the police came to help him. I am not sure who called the police.
My Mom says that since Ramadan started the youngest child (a boy) is not outside playing soccer anymore, the blinds to the house are completely drawn shut all the time. The Mom of the family never spends time outside and her husband is much older than her. There is a teenage girl living there as well.
I am extremely opposed to people pushing their religious beliefs onto their children, whether it is withholding food and beverages from them during the month long Ramadan or forcing them to sit in church for several hours weekly. Once a person is grown, mature and can make their own decisons they can decide whether practicing a religion is something they want to be part of.
I feel bad for the other two kids in that family and the Mom, I am sure they are living a very oppressed life.
Not easy when two cultures collide, many children of Muslim families protest and run away or distance themselves from their families once they come to Sweden. When I lived there I knew of a teenage girl that ran away because her family were about to marry her off to some older man in a Turkish village. She did not want that, so she ran away. I would had done the same.
I think that a week at Burning Man yearly during childhood would teach children way more about life, humanity and getting along with others and helping others than any religion forced upon them during childhood.



I should add here that I feel strongly against any religion that forces children to practices that are in my opinion unhealthy, whether it's Islam, Christianity, Church of the Latter-day Saints, whatever other religion or the cult known as The Duggars.

Again

Obviously most of you with access to a TV or a computer have heard about what happened in Manchester England at the Ariana Grande concert. I found out yesterday around 5 30 PM my time. Just unreal. Again. Why?
Right now the responsibility for the suicide bombing by one male named Salman Abedi is claimed by ISIS. But ISIS claims responsibility for most terrorist attacks whether they really are responsible or not so the details are still unclear.
Nobody should have to die this way. This is just not right no matter where in the world it is happening. Really there are no words that can be used in events like these to justify anything. All the "stars" are tweeting out their condolences but that doesn't mean anything. They are not doing any real difference in the world anyways, not many of them at least. A tweet? What does a tweet do? To get a family member or friend taken from you in any violent way must be extremely painful and traumatizing. I would had been devastated for the rest of my remaining days. I don't understand what is going on in this world but I do know that human beings are the most evil and viscous beings on this planet and we will be our own demise. I am so sorry that things like this are happening, I am so sorry that some people are cruel and hurt others and animals. Life is a struggle, for some more than for others. Why make it harder? Why add more pain to the struggles we face going through life?
I am sitting here.....I ate today, I am OK, the sun is shining, I hear birds chirping, the trees are green and there are fluffy white flowers floating in the wind. My heart feels sadness, sadness for everything that is wrong. It feels pointless to write about it anymore, we all either write or talk about it......tweeting, FB posts whatever it is - still no difference. Cruelty is everywhere.

Not Willing To Assimilate

Good morning, a bit before 9 AM here in sunny Las Vegas. Local news is that the Bellagio hotel roof was on fire last night but nobody got hurt. THAT would had been kind of interesting to watch, instead of the usual Bellagio singing fountains.
Now to other more important news.....a woman doctor, or should I more appropriately say butcher.....somewhere outside Detroit is charged with performing female genital mutilation, or FGM on girls between the ages of six and eight for at least 12 years. This is what is known so far. Nobody knows for sure how many girls in the US have had this procedure forced upon them, since FGM is illegal and therefore a hidden practice here but it is a high number.
But see even where women have rights, these things are happening, obviously. This is a great example of people not willing to assimilate to a new culture, whether they are first or second generation immigrants. They are willing to butcher their daughters, put them through a painful and dangerous ordeal just because their culture says so, it's "tradition". These girl are scarred for life and what message does this send to these girls? That they need to alter their body so some man will find them desirable enough to marry in the future. Because a woman's worth is all about that some man should find you good enough to get married to. Some man that will most likely watch porn and cheat anyways. All a woman is to a man like that is a servant at home that should give birth to his off spring, preferably boys, cook and clean and open up her legs and allow him to penetrate her mutilated vagina whenever he feels the urge. The message is - women have no rights. The fact that parents are willing to butcher their child's body and create long lasting mental and physical problems is DISGUSTING.
The "doctor" is a woman, she should have known better.
IF FOUND GUILTY (remember, innocent until proven guilty) I hope she gets sentenced to life.
Sweden was the first Western country to make FGM illegal, that was done is 1982.
A few days ago I watched some other special on labia pulling. That too is done to young girls and that means that you stretch out your labia minora by pulling on it, so your vagina looks and feels more desirable to a man later on when you are old enough to get married. And old enough to get married in some backwards cultures means basically after you get our first period.
I personally was in 7th grade when I got my period and having sex with some older man through an arranged marriage was not even part of my reality but for some girls, SADLY, it is. I was still playing with dolls and loved horses and dogs and was going to school - that was my reality.
Labia pulling is done in some African countries and FGM is practiced in Africa, Asia and the Middle East but both FGM and labia pulling can be found where people from those places have settled, as we can see now all over the US, all over Europe, Australia and other places.
And if people can't assimilate enough to not allow their own children to get butchered, I can just imagine what other backwards ideas they have a problem leaving behind in the old country.

From BBC news "The first recorded case of FGM in the US was in 2006, when an Ethiopian immigrant was jailed for 10 years for aggravated battery and cruelty to children for mutilating his two-year-old daughter five years earlier with a pair of scissors."

I have been around people from all over the world, personal friends, acquaintances and people I have briefly met but had interesting and meaningful conversations with, so I know that there are good, kind and intelligent people EVERYWHERE from ALL OVER.
But when it comes to inflicting pain on the innocent, that have no voice - children and animals, that is when I see red. NO EXCUSE for that. I feel that the harshest penalties need to be implemented on those who commit crimes against the ones that can not defend themselves.


Stockholm



Many have said it was just a matter of time and today it happened.....a highjacked truck driven by a madman in high speed down Drottninggatan in Stockholm.
So far four people dead and 15 injured. And a dead dog. A few years ago a man with a bomb strapped to himself detonated the bomb on the same street, Drottninggatan, only he died then. And plenty of shocked bystanders.
A few days ago, bombs on the subway in St.Petersburg. A truck drove into people in London. Before that Berlin. And Nice. Paris. Theo van Gogh. There was a nerve agent chemical attack in Syria recently. Sarin is banned, illegal and to release a gas amongst people is.....I have no words.
No matter where in the world innocent people die in senseless violent attacks it is just wrong. It happened to be Stockholm today. The city I grew up in and a place that I love, of course.
Well.....many of these attacks have been carried out by men with Arabic names, in the name of Allah and organizations like ISIS have claimed responsibility for much of this. These are just facts, nothing made up.
Oh yes, there are non Arab, non Muslim folks that go on killing sprees as well, I am very much aware of that. Just seems to be a whole lot of attacks in the name of the not so peaceful religion Islam carried out in the last two decades or so.
Of course there was stuff happening worldwide in the 70's and 80's as well but I don't have any statistic on that. I can think of Pan Am flight 103, Lockerbie.
And the Northern Ireland Conflict, IRA.
Sweden is a very politically correct place, being labeled a racist or "främlingsfientlig" is something really bad. You might get seriously shunned for that. God forbid you are outspoken about your political opinions if they have anything to do with wanting to accept less immigrants into the country.
That makes you a bad person.
I grew up knowing people either born somewhere else besides Sweden, like myself or being second generation immigrants. I have very close friends from all over. But I also have opinions and even my immigrant friends in Sweden with roots from the Middle East are not happy with the political situation and the downturn of the country. This was one of the bigger topics of discussion last time I was home. Swedes are kind and naive by nature. Other not so nice people take advantage of that. I have often been too kind and naive for my own good after leaving Sweden, not understanding that some people lie and really only are out to harm you in whatever ways they can. There has been much disbelief, many tears and sadness in my life because of that.
Anyhow. I am not sure what can be done about ISIS and similar groups. I want to say that they will go away soon, that this will all go away but that would be foolish wouldn't it? I do not understand what makes somebody feel compelled and driven to carry out acts like these and honestly believe that they are doing something good.
I don't get it. I did not grow up like that. I will never understand.
Yeah, I talked to my brother, he was stuck in Stockholm like many others because public transportation was at a standstill. I talked to my Mom and I am going to call them again tomorrow.
I really miss Sweden, it is a beautiful place with kind wonderful people living there. Too bad that this happened in Stockholm today. But no matter where innocent people die in the world it is wrong.

Mark Of The Beast

Found this article in today's local paper.



Depending on where you are on the religious believing in God scale, I am sure that there are people that will look at this as the mark of the beast. But then again, some believe that credit cards are the mark of the beast, others believe that social security numbers are. I don't really have an opinion about it. I am......spiritual. Of course the end of the times, or Armageddon sounds extremely scary. I have thought about it quite a bit myself and wondered if I would be one of the chosen ones to be saved? It could really go either way. Nobody knows. I just want to be reunited with my family and Chhaya - that is all that I am asking for.
Anyhow, the article talks about a microchip that gets implanted in the fleshy area by the thumb. This happens to take place at a company in Sweden and about 150 of the people working there got chipped already. I am not surprised this is happening in Sweden, the Scandinavian countries are well known to be advanced in innovative technology and people there overall are very forward thinking and openminded.
I am sure people will get all kinds of microchips and other electronics implanted in them in the near future. Time will tell what complications will come out of that, some good and some bad I'm sure.
Now look at the headline underneath the microchip article. That glaciers are retreating world wide. That would be global warming and if you are not lucky enough to live a long life and maybe face a possible Armageddon, then be concerned with what effects human life have on this planet instead. That is a real fact, even though from what I understand, the POTUS doesn't acknowledge global warming. Say what?
It is sad that polar bears have less room to roam because the ice is melting. I feel so bad for all the suffering animals around the world. We will destroy ourselves. Just like the Hopi prophecy says.

Reading

My dream job would be to get paid to read and write. Well, one of my dream jobs at least. Another dream job is professional sleeper, like bed tester.
And professional party investigator, meaning get paid to travel and check out various music festivals. Burning Man would get covered extensively.
I wanted to be a journalist at one point in Sweden and then I came to the US and my life took a different track. Nowadays with magazines being a dying breed I suspect that journalism as a profession is shrinking. But I am not sure. In Sweden for example, some are still making a living writing blogs. And some of those blogs, in my opinion are just empty and vapid but I guess vapid makes money.....look at the Kardashians. Plus the kind of journalism I really like and admire are the people that travel to war ravaged places to investigate and write stories about that. Or dig deep into domestic stories that can be difficult to uncover.
People that bring injustices to the surface, people that work to make a positive change in this world. Me traveling to let's say Afghanistan to gather information for a story is not going to happen because I will not put myself in that kind of danger. But I really admire the brave people that do.
Anyhow, today I am reading. I read almost everything except stuff like hunting and fishing magazines, I have zero interest in reading about people bragging about their for fun kill trophies. Women posing with fish they caught or some animal they managed to shoot and kill is like one of the ugliest things ever. Yes, men pose with that as well and that is ugly too but men are in many ways less evolved than women in that aspect (and in many other arenas as well), therefore I am surprised that there are women out there that willingly do shit like that......pose with a dead innocent animal while grinning like idiots. Barf.
But then again, I don't even want to kill a fly so I am extra sensitive to the treatment of animals.



If you like Beauty and the Beast this LIFE magazine about it is great. So many nice illustrations and interesting historical facts.
So I have to say that I do not like how the president of the United States is handling himself in meetings with other world leaders. I am thinking about the handshake issue. That is beyond awkward. I don't care if you have some phobia of germs or OCD or whatever it might be, when you are elected president and the president of the USA on top of it, man the fuck up and shake hands. Period.
The world is watching in horror and disbelief. This is not The Apprentice, it's serious now. Or do I have to attend the next meeting he has scheduled and show him how it's done? Melania needs to slap some sense into him, Eastern European old school style.
And another child is dead because of severe neglect and abuse. Happens every day in the US. This is a recurring topic in my blog because it really bothers me. The child I am thinking about is the 16 year old girl that was found in a diaper, starved to death, laying in feces. She was adopted. Two other adopted children were found in the house. Still alive.
A few months ago there was a case about a 14 year old adopted girl raped and murdered by her adoptive "Mom" and the woman's boyfriend.
Do not for a second believe that the child you don't want and decide so "selflessly" to give up for adoption because "it is the right thing to do" will be loved and well cared for. Yes, I know that there are adopted children that are loved, of course but then how many adopted and in foster care children are there that are being abused daily? Too many, that's how many.
Too many children are neglected, beaten, abused, starved, molested, murdered by either a biological parent, a biological parents new boyfriend or girlfriend, by a foster or adoptive family member.
I am 100% for abortion. If you can't take care of a child, don't have it. You think that raped and murdered innocent 14 year old child wanted a life like that? NO. Neither would you.
Better to abort than put a child through torture like that. And now society has to pay for two unworthy to be alive scumbags for an X amount years while they sit in prison.

Ringling Brothers

GREAT news that Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus has announced that it is closing the curtain after operating for well over a century. FINALLY! They have a number of shows left to do in the next four months and then they are done. Declining ticket sales means that people do not want to support animal cruelty anymore. Pressure from various animal rights organizations on the circus is also a strong factor for the closure. Bravo!
I don't care if humans want to put on shows for other humans as long as it's not coerced but to cage animals and force them to perform for an audience is just cruel. The elephants the circus used have retired since a while now I guess, they are at some sanctuary in Florida where I hope they can live comfortably and peacefully. The rest of the animals will still have to perform for a few more months until the circus is done.
I don't know how any adult with a functioning brain can attend a circus with animals and think it is entertaining? Especially not in these times.
When I was a kid my Mom would smoke in the car with me in it although I absolutely HATED it and felt sick the whole time (I hated car rides because of that), women would smoke when pregnant and a bunch of other things that I hope nobody does nowadays since we seem to become more informed about certain issues as time goes by and we supposedly "evolve". Although there are plenty of examples of idiots everywhere that sadly reproduce. But humans are greedy and only care about themselves, so taking themselves and their snotty whiny brats to a circus to watch animals suffer is something they feel they are entitled to do. BARF.
There are MANY pictures and MUCH information online about how animals in captivity are treated.
In the wild they are hunted and killed for pleasure or for certain body parts and left to rot.
Even household pets are not safe from psychos. How about the scumbag that is accused of sticking his disgusting dick into his pitbull more than 100 times? Some piece of shit in Florida and when I googled it, another scumbag in Florida did the same in his backyard a few years ago and a shocked neighbor called the cops. That scumbag had 8 pitbulls in his possession. Now if you look at these scumbag's mugshots you can just see that they are either inbred or slow, or injured from either fetal alcohol syndrome or a long self inflicted exposure to either alcohol or drugs. I hope they both die, soon. I have zero sympathy for trash like that.
And then some other man (of course) also in Florida thought it would be a good idea to try to rape a pitbull that he tried to grab in a park, in this instance he got his dick and balls torn apart by the dog. That dog should get an award. How come no women are running around in public parks attacking adults, children and animals to try to make their rape fantasies reality?
Have I ever been to a circus? Yes, once as a child and once as an adult (a stupid adult) and shortly after that I started becoming increasingly aware of how we treat animals and started making personal choices in my life that would reflect on my awareness.
I am only hoping to be able to better myself and my choices and make this world a better place even if only by small personal efforts and actions (maybe one day something big) before it is my time to pass on.

Lots of great info on here......



I might have to take a drive out to this place......
