The point of the matter is, I can't speak my mind on certain issues (like mass shootings) and demand justice without people misinterpreting what I say and giving me trouble for it. Even if someone like James Holmes deserves to suffer, letting people know about your hatred for him will only attract the attention of people who go out of their way to defend him.

I'm beginning to hate just about everyone on the internet. (Except for you guys, the ones who share my beliefs - or talk rationally to me if you disagree with my viewpoints.)

But I'm not leaving this site. I'm just going to lay low for a little while. No artwork for awhile, no more comments on polarizing issues on YouTube, etc.

But I probably don't have much to be bothered by. These trolls are nothing but a bunch of pussies who talk trash from the safety of their computers.

PS: I also forgot to mention that YouTube's blocking system is performing poorly. One person I blocked still managed to appear in my inbox with a reply to my comment. Just take a look at all the people wrongfully defending James Holmes in this video and you'll see: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zef2YF…

That's probably the sad thing about the Internet... It kind of reminds me of that island that Pinocchio travelled to in the Disney movie where there were absolutely no rules and no consequences. In the end, those folks all got turned into jack-asses.

Same goes for the Internet, except you might say it offers equal gender opportunity... Basically, all boys and girls get the chance to act like complete morons, with little to no consequence. And often, they look like complete jack-asses with some of the absolute garbage they spout.

And as for those people defending James Holmes, the man responsible for the Aurora shootings? Either they're really hurting for attention or they actually support such senseless murder. Can only hope things get better for the United States in regards to keeping the citizens safe.

Thanks for bringing all this to our attention. All the best to you. =)

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and comment. :)

The strange part is, the people who defend James Holmes try to make it look as if they're not condoning mass murder. They think a severe punishment would be "harsh" yet I never hear them talk about how harsh it was to kill 12 innocent people and maim 50 others.

I posted a comment saying, "If you're another psycho planning a mass shooting, save those bullets for the Westboro Baptist Church." And some asshole named FreeEllyNow responded saying he was disgusted by that because they bring their children to those protests and ends his comment saying that he doesn't support the WBC but doesn't want them murdered.

First of all, I never said anything about hurting any kids; second, I'm not saying violence is the answer, but if anyone deserves to die in a mass shooting, it's definitely those morons from the WBC.

Anyone who tells me I have no sense of Christianity can get lost. I'll be praying that people will be safe from this kind of tragedy.

It does seem awfully hypocritical doesn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't murder usually carry a 25 year-to-lifetime sentence? If so, he should be jailed for at least 300 years... and yet these people think that would be too harsh. Oh, but of course, their families probably weren't affected by the tragedy, so they try to come off as the "voice of reason" when instead they seem very insensitive to the clear heartache. Just as a "what if" scenario, what if the citizens in the cinema that day packed a gun, just a 9mm or a Glock or something, regardless of the supposed "gun laws" that protect them? Certainly they may "break" some rules, but when it comes to your survival, your life at stake, the only rule is that there are no rules. (A personal opinion)

Meh, personally, I couldn't give two shits for Westboro Baptist Church... You've seen one extremely bigoted group of rednecks parading around as a religion, you've seen them all. The only difference between them and the others is the media (being the complete morons they are too) keep providing them the attention they crave, and so the shit continues and it's a vicious cycle, over and over again. :no: Sometimes people will leave derogatory, absolutely heartless comments on the Facebook pages of those recently passed away, just for the chance at 15 so-called seconds of fame. And you know, the sad thing is, they probably wouldn't have bothered had the page not been swimming in "likes" or something like that. =p

What these people fail to realise it seems is that the concept of Christianity is different for each person. Sure, everyone can hold a Holy Bible and proclaim themselves Christians. Sure, they may go to church every Sunday finely dressed to pray. But I tell you this: I dare you to find two or more people who believe the EXACT same things in the Bible... like the same phrases, chapters and so on and so forth. Chances are you won't, or it will be very difficult, since people I believe will pick and choose the things that are relevant to them.

Me? I'm swinging on the fence with this one. I'd like to believe there's a God, since the world is so beautiful it cannot possibly be all man or nature-made, yet I don't believe in the concept of going to church and praying to him and all that kind of thing. My belief is as a human race, created in His own image, he'd want us to treat each other respectfully, be good to all we meet, do good things for people. I guess in that regard, I believe in Karma.

And for those who proclaim we'd go straight to Hell because we don't follow their beliefs, I've got something to tell you: If we were going to Hell based on the decisions of just ONE other person we encountered in our lives, even just by chance, don't ya think Hell would be WAY overcrowded? =p

Anyway, my opinions aside, and up to you whether you agree with them or not, you are very much welcome. Take care, now. =)

Oh, and thanks for the watch too! Hope you enjoy what I have to offer.

Last but not least, a handshake to my fellow autistic brother! (I believe I have a mild/moderate form of high-functioning autism.) :handshake:

On the internet, you really got to careful what you say.
Without clarifying what you say, it can get mistranslated and misconstrued by idiots.

And also, some people will purposely try to misconstrue what is said because they're dicks/trolls.

While I'm on the subject, DON'T EVER join this group: :iconbrutal-rage: They seem to be trolls for the most part. I got trolled for expressing my opinions in a journal entry.

Exactly. Here's one dork on YouTube you should block if you ever use that site: [link]

The internet gives free reign to an unalienable right that many people often take for granted (especially in America). With any freedom, most especially the Freedom of Speech, you have the inevitable issue of people who abuse that freedom. People are free to say what they will about whatever and whoever they wish, but sadly (as the old saying goes) people are very quick to speak out of the side of their necks; meaning they don't let what they say filter through their mind first. People all to often speak out of Prejudice, Ignorance, Fear, Cronyism, and Greed without any attempt to rationalize just what they're talking about and the circumstances surrounding it.

I've had similar issues regarding my anti-gun control stance... [link]

While I agree that the mass shootings which have occurred recently are terrible tragedies; the focus toward counteracting them should not be placed upon guns or even the criminals who perpetrated them. As it was stated before, "In this country with have a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem." With regard to James Holmes, I neither defend nor condemn him. I feel he should be dealt with in order to prevent him from bringing harm to anyone else, but in my eyes I see him as merely a pawn and a distraction to divert attention from the REAL terrorists and psychopaths...the ones who sit upon the seats at Capitol Hill.

At this point, I've found less reason to condemn Holmes - but only because you (a person with a lot of wisdom) encouraged me to and not some defender of his from YouTube's inbred community. I'll admit, what I said was violent (basically saying, "If you are planning a mass shooting, save those bullets for the Westboro Baptist Church") but still, that asshole who replied to me needed to be blocked.

I just can't stop thinking about the pain those people at the Aurora shooting are still feeling almost a year later. We just need better security if this country won't do shit to stop the clinically insane from owning automatics (especially in a fairly safe environment where they don't even need them to begin with) If we had security working at more entrances and exits, this probably wouldn't happen in so many public places.

Nor can I stop wondering if that will ever happen to me or someone I love.

What we need in this country is common sense (above all else), and after that we need greater focus on mental healthcare, stronger security in public places like schools and theaters, and also the exact opposite of what gun control laws would require. I support background checks and safety courses for gun purchases, but I say we need to permit law-abiding citizens the freedom to carry firearms in public, because a majority of mass shootings occur in places where armed citizens are illegal. You never hear about all the mass shootings and robberies which were stopped by law-abiding citizens armed with guns. When the average law-abiding citizen is armed, crime and gun violence decreases. Think about it. If you were a criminal or madman, would you try and attack somebody capable of putting a bullet in your head?

What we need to do as a collective society is vote out all the useless self-serving political bastards who are presently on Capitol Hill and vote in people who will actually put the welfare of the people before their own wallet and job security. A good start for accomplishing this task would be to vote for anybody who isn't a member of either the Democratic or Republican parties; they're both just a bunch of thieves and liars who are the loyal pets to "Big Business" and criminal bankers.
