Location:Texas, USA Naturalized US Citizen of Irish extract -   Fixed Wing and Helo trucker.Interests: "The Absurdity of Man". I am a proud supporter of Blarney, Nonsense, and Hooey. I enjoy being a chopper jockey, and trying to figure the world, people and belief systems out. I'm just not very good at it, so it keeps me real busy. I scribble, blog, run this website, mess with rental houses, ride motorbikes, and read as much as I can. I went solo 44 years ago, and I like to say I'm gonna get me a real job one day. When I grow up. ("but not just yet, Lord, not just yet") For my aviation scribbles see enjoy! I wish you Peace in your Life. May you always walk with the sun on your face, and a breeze ruffling your hair. And may you cherish a quiet wonder for our awesome Universe. Life isn't always good. But it is always fascinating. Never quit.

Simone from Calais
Simone from Calais

       There is much garbage on the Internet, and that includes garbage You-Boob videos. But amongst the chaff, we find the wheat. One personal story is that of Simone, told with a raw sincerity. If left me sad and despondent, and determined, in my own na├»ve and gormless way, to 'do something'.  That mindset usually gets me into trouble, as I wade in to waters flowing dark, deep and fast. I invite the viewer to quietly study this intensely personal narrative. If you come out of this thinking we should still 'help these poor unfortunate immigrants' then I'm not sure if I should admire your idealism, laugh at your naivety, or weep over your innocence.  My sense... oh, watch it first. See what you think.

My sense is that the lady speaks from the warm, feeling heart. Her comment about 'the death of civilization' ring uncomfortably true. You sense also a wholly demoralized Police Force, and the breakdown of Law and Order.

The other one I felt conferred another element of the tragedy was this one.  Just the sense of normally peaceful life rudely disturbed, probably forever. People should never feel besieged in their own homes.

It seems at first that the interviewer in the third video is heartless. No compassion. Look again. Is there are also maybe such a thing as "False compassion" or "misplaced compassion"...? I think he has a point. Here as well we see how shallow their Muslim 'religion' is. It has no depth. Islam is high on 'voluble expressions' of their politically motivated ideology, dressed up zealously in fine and colorful garb as a 'Religion of Peace' (which is an outright lie), but ranks barely a drop above 'empty' in substance. Take a look.

We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.
