Out With the Old, In With the New

  It's been a very long time since I've been active on YouTube with any form of political speech and over the past few years since a major domestic crisis in mid 2011 I have lost interest, motivation and focus, etc in continuing the routine I was formerly accustomed to.

  I no longer have the interest or desire to continue video commentary and discussion in an angry, in your face manner which my subscribers know me for, nor do I have any interest or desire to continue with using foul language or political bashing, etc.    Frankly, I am no longer in the loop or up to date with the subject matters I used to talk about such as political perspective, conspiracy, the police state and so on.  Frankly, I no longer wish to engage in these types of discussions and wish to focus on more positive, happy and pleasant things that are uplifting and productive.

  I have an extensive and varied amount of interests, so will instead focus on producing videos that may appeal to a wider and different kind of audience.

  I am discontinuing my standard introduction as well as all names associated with my former persona "Asshole Blogger" & "Morte Ad Tyranni".  Unfortunately I can not change the url of this blog unless I want to sacrifice inbound links and search traffic, however, all social media accounts names and urls, etc will be changed to "Gorgeous Whisper" which is the English translation of my middle name.

Part of the reason for this change is due to the fact that I am Buddhist, having been learning, studying and practicing Mahayana Buddhism since late 2012.  One of the principle teachings of Buddhism is The Noble Eightfold Path, part of which focuses on not only Right Action, but Right Speech, therefore, I can no longer engage in foul language nor present my commentary in an angry fashion.

   As a result of this decision to change the direction of my YouTube channel and social media networking, I have deleted 99% of my videos and will be making new videos with not only a different method of presentation and delivery, but different subject matter as well.

Some of the things I may share or discuss etc will be herbal medicine, personal experiences, my life in general, parenting, Buddhism, events, non political world news, crafting, art, etc..  Things that are educational, uplifting, positive, happy, productive, mentally stimulating and emotionally nurturing, etc...  Of course this isn't all, but I have to make it clear, I will no longer engage in discussion and commentary on things of a political nature or of conspiracy, etc, etc as I did in the past.

Time to Throw in the Towel and Give Up

Due to a variety of factors, including mental health, life circumstances, change of life's direction, lack of interest and/or change of interests,  I feel like I should give up on YouTube and this blog.

It's all a complete waste of my time and is going nowhere.

ISIS is a Direct Result and Consequence of U.S. Intervention in the Middle East.

I should record a video on this topic, yet I find my self more at ease with writing since I'm able to pause and reflect on things prior to typing it out, unlike while recording where I must continue talking.

  With all the national news on ISIS, aka The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, I figured perhaps I should voice my own take on the situation.

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant aka ISIS

Fact is, ISIS is a direct result and consequence of US intervention and meddling in the middle east, but more alarming is the fact that the US government FUNDED, TRAINED AND ARMED ISIS.

ISIS is a direct offshoot of the Iraqi branch of Al-Qaeda, created in 2013 and active in not only Iraq, but in Syria as part of the collective "Syrian Rebels" which are supported by the US government.  Arizona Senator John McCain even met members of these terrorists groups in person while in Syria awhile back.

It is my belief that had the US not gotten involved in Iraq to begin with, there would be no threat as I'm sure Saddam Hussein would have put down any threat to his nation, much like so with Gaddafi in Libya.   When the US meddles in the governmental systems of nations abroad, it angers and incites the peoples of the region because they desire to form their own systems, not be under de-facto US rule via US placed puppet regimes.

Prior to the murder of Hussein, Iraq was no threat to the US and it is my belief that the US should NOT get involved in the internal conflicts of other nations.  It is NOT the job of the US government to be the world's police, nor is it supposed to be the burden of the American taxpayers who fund it through billions of dollars in tax revenue, which I may add has caused the US to be 18 TRILLION in debt, the majority of it due to the failures and incompetence of Barack Obama and US Congress over the last 6 years.

The latest news cycle regarding ISIS is the false notion that ISIS may strike against a major city of these United States, which I personally think is a load of BS fabricated in order to sell the idea of war to the dumb sheep of America.   Surely ISIS is well equipped thanks to the US government who allowed, aided, facilitated and abetted the Benghazi attacks in order to move weapons into ISIS hands, and then covered it up, but the notion that ISIS is capable of large scale or catastrophic attack against any city in the US is insanely absurd and unrealistic.

So now the US wants to go to war against ISIS, and organization that the US created, funded, trained and equipped.   The US has a history of this kind of thing, as seen with Afghanistan's Taliban, as well as with Osama Bin Laden, even Saddam Hussein.  It just never ends. 

How convenient, this planned "crisis" in order to enable more war and keep US troops in the middle east.

As an afterthought, several hours after writing this post, I did end up making a video discussing my suspicions in regards to the ISIS beheading of James Foley..

Depression Has Been Keeping Me Down Lately

Those of you who followed me in the past via my stagnant and inactive YouTube channel and other social media may have wondered why I haven't been around in quite some time.

Fact is, I have been suffering from depression and it's really been kicking me in the ass.  I have lost interest in so many things I used to really enjoy.  Days pass by in some form of thoughtless funk that rids my soul of any desire or motivation whatsoever.. sometimes it lasts for weeks, until finally I snap out of it with a burst of motivation, mostly because my housework and errands went neglected for so long, but the short bursts of energetic motivation that come and go never last long and then I'm back in some prolonged state of lazy, tired, and chronically depressed.

Due to several past situations, I also suffer from post traumatic stress disorder and this on top of depression is really causing me to really lose focus.

I can't think straight... and often I can't even articulate much of what's been on my mind.   I feel alone, and I feel stuck and hopeless.

I no longer desire to do the things I once liked to do and it sucks.   Some people, mostly my mom, have asked why I'm not on medication to help with the depression and PTSD, yet they fail to understand my reasons for not wanting to take any kind of synthetics or pharmaceuticals.  I absolutely refuse to do so.  I fear the adverse affects and the potential for making things worse, and have always been strongly against pharmaceuticals and synthetic drugs, particularly those designed for changing thought process and brain activity, etc.

I don't know why I'm writing about this, other than for the fact that I haven't been motivated nor interested in writing anything for quite some time, and although I have often wished to make a new YouTube video for my channel, when I tried, YouTube screwed something up and disconnects me every single time I'm recording, so I say "screw it" and forget about it, and many times, even though I wish to make a new video, I often have no clue what I should talk about.  I'm so lost and confused most days of the week, and it's really messing me up.

I really need to snap out of it and figure things out
