CONFLICT [Jul. 22nd, 2006|01:35 pm]
katsu_out_loud
I find what is going on in Israel and Lebanon to be a complete atrocity. The media here at home and in Israel is lying to all of us saying that Hezbollah is a terrible terrorist force, and that is why "we are okay" with israel bombing the fuck out of these folks.
Hezbollah is a political group with both civilian and militant arms. The United States, Britain and Israel consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization but throughout most of the Arab and Muslim worlds, Hezbollah is highly regarded as a legitimate resistance movement. The civilian wing runs hospitlas schools etc.
Hezbollah was formed to combat Israel after their occupation during which, thousands of civilians were killed.
The reason Hezbollah had two Israeli soldiers kidnapped was as incentive to free the hundereds of Palestinian prisoners(many of which are women and children) that are being held in Israel. but Israel has, for over a year, been plotting to destroy Hezbollah.
The propaghanda machine has made up out of thin air attacks on Israel that have never happened while Israel has killed over 300 people, A THIRD OF WHICH HAVE BEEN CHILDREN, and only THREE OF WHICH HAVE BEEN HEZBOLLAH MILITANTS!
This to me is disgusting. Not just the atrocity of the lives being taken but the disinformation campaign that has been going on in the middle east in general. AMERICA and its puppet Israel have been lying to you under the guise that our well-being is being threatened by terrorists, that poor Israel is getting "a rain of rocket fire".
I could go on, but this is so tiring to type out. I am by no means pro-war on any side, but what I am first suggesting is that through Israeli and American propaghanda, we have come to believe blatant lies about the current conflict. I am not trying to say by any means that I am one of the informed ones. My point isn't to tell you about everything that is going on(and frankly I can't say I know everything that is going on). My point is that I think we have all been mislead and probably will continue to be for a long time.
It is a shame that in my begging you not to trust anything the mainstream media tells you, i will be labeled as a "left wing conspiracy nut" and even those who would share my opinions, will see my as singing a tired old song. America is on some fucked up imperialistic crusade and will use any means it has to sedate you. It doesnt seem real. We like to think we are all clever enough not to be decieved and that if these things were really happening that the word would get out and it wouldnt be tolerated. this is not the case. the media firms are corporations, so ponder that. money talks, bullshit walks.
please research these things for yourself. check resources such as wikipedia and antiwar.com . they arent perfect but currently have some sense of integrity. and if you have a voice in some social setting,(ie POPULAR PUNK, METAL, and HARDCORE BANDS) please use it. <3- ryan the pilot

I am currently at a buddhist commune in northern colorado called shambhala mountain center. i am working in the kitchen here. its pretty chill as far as kitchens are concerned, especially compared to shit like Hideaway. i like it here. amazing people who like to be good to one another.
i set out a couple of weeks ago with my friends todd, ted, michael loveland, michael lortz, margaret, and andrew. we all went to the rainbow gathering which took oplace in a national forest about an hour out of steamboat springs, which was dubbed illegal by the feds but we all made it out without any tickets or citations. it was rather insane. over 10,000 people all coexisting nicely without any monatary exchange(it is possible).
todd and i then parted ways with the rest and came out here. we dont know how long we'll be here but there is no rush to leave. after this i could head out west to CA/OR/WA or possibly eastward towards NY/TN or wherever. its pointless to guess really. i may go back home sometime in august for a minute for the birth of my neice, but that is another thing i am unsure about.
playing guitar out here is really nice. just recently have i been able to be content with just playing acoustic guitar. we know how much i love epic set-ups. but this is a season for me to atleast try to keep it simple. i've come up with some stuff i really like, and i hope to be able to record it soon. there are a few folks out here to collaborate with.
i am pretty concerned with all that is going on in lebanon and israel. it has the potential to turn into something more horrible than it already is. so i have been keeping my ears open about that, while continuing onward with what i do.
i have been coughing a lot lately and keeping myseklf up all night doing so, thus rendering me pretty tired and easily fatigued, but should be going to a doctor in red feather this week to try to get it taken care of. i also cut my finger pretty bad in the kitchen the other day and lost a lot of blood. aside from all of that i am in pretty great spirits. i dont really see myself getting homesick for awhile. OK is great in a lot of ways, but im cashed. love to you all. <3-ry

shifts in perspective. im gettin learned real sweet.
dude bro! i want to go somewhere pretty soon. i was thinking about moving to the ghetto of fanklin TN for a bit. for those who havent been there, its totally sweet. no trouble really. thats just where the coloreds live. i assume he property value isnt too high in that part of town.
the oppurtunity to live in NY for free to cheap has presented itself.
meh. im not too worried about it all. i will likely change my mind fifty times before i actually do something. hideaway is funny. i like not taking things seriously. especially work. i might pick up another job at dunkin donuts. that job would be tha ish. i enjoy not getting fucked with. uh....

your dress is very becoming on you. BALLS.

i feel like its time to shed some fat. useless acquaintances considered as friends and the shit that goes along with that. i have many "fuck yous" to say. many of the recipients of which probably know who they are, but i doubt they care. as is to be expected.so eat a dick.
