The Most Tasteless Thing You Can Post After A Tragedy

Kurt's Choice of the most Tasteless thing you can put on the Web after a tragedy.


Here it is

I am still in shock with this one. What would you do after a tragic air crash? I know, do what the "good" people at Z Living.com did and promote your cheap herbal remedy for depression.

Oh, and lets make it really "classy" and put the face of Andreas Lubitz on the page telling you how you can avoid depression.

That's right, if Lubitz just used St. John's Wort, no one would have died in the French Alps.

Hey, why not exploit human suffering, loss and grief to sell your cheap remedy for depression?

If you can make a quick buck, why not?

Really?



(I am very involved with issues related to mental health and this is serious. If you suffer from depression, bipolar or any mental illness, please seek professional help. NAMI is a great starting point. Mental illness is a medical matter, so please get help if you even think there maybe a problem. Prompt help does save lives, yours and others.)

There is a “peculiar” victim based version of feminism that conceals a contempt for men and a underground envy of them.  In some incestuous hot house melting pots of sameness there are lazy so called academicians that see anything “Masculine” as the ultimate source of all subjugation.  The flawed and over worked narrative is that if women held direct power their rule would be far …

Speculation: The reason behind the Mass Killings in Las Vegas

An Explanation of Madness
By Kurt Joachim von Behrmann

                In ten minutes The Route 91 Music Festival became a killing field.   When the gun fire ceased, 58 were dead and 489 wounded.  The man responsible for one of the deadliest mass shootings committed by an individual in recent U.S. history was found dead from self-inflicted wounds.  Stephan Paddock, age 64, left no suicide note. He left no explanation.
                Las Vegas, a place built on easy money and relaxed morality, became a sullen city the day after the horrors of October first passed.   Streets normally filled with people were vacant.  It was as if the city had gone into instant mourning.  Even the lure of fast cash and good times, even commerce itself, had to stop and acknowledge that something horrific transpired.
