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.)

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. 
                Sympathy, prayers and condolences were offered by the House and Senate as they do in a perfunctory manner, and yet curiously no legislative action.  Much like the …

When Democrats Become Dinos

A HOUSE DIVIDED  A Primer for Democrats on How to Win Elections
     I experienced an episode yesterday that illustrates why the Democratic Party fails and the Republican Part gains votes. It is essential that we as “true Democrats” and “True Progressives” prevent our Democratic Republic from turning into an Oligarchy. 
The Arizona gubernatorial race between Doug Ducey, Republican, and Fred Duval, Democrat, ended in a victory for Ducey.  One feature that made this race “disturbing” for me was the fact that Catherine Miranda, a Democrat publicly supported a Republican instead of a Democrat. 
On Facebook, I had made a point that seems to have “irritated” Miranda.  She replied with a comment, “Who are you?”
For me, this sounded rather rude. Granted etiquette on the internet differs from other types, I took this to be a bit impolite.   She could have instead replied with a “Thank you for contacting me, can I clarify a point with you?”  Instead I was greeted with a stark “Who are you?”
