I come to that conclusion after watching all those detective shows on TV, the 'Justice' channel, 'True Detective', and all the other such shows.
It seems relationships with others can be both a blessing, curse, and your eventual demise.
It's probably why I'm still prospering, not socially I'm not, cause I keep to myself, but as far as other areas, yes (at least to my dull standards).
But when you watch these detective TV shows, you see people turn on each other who have been friends for years, decades, or you see family turn on each other.
You see, on these TV shows, roommates killing another over money, even small change type of money, you see, on these TV shows, family members kill one another over money, inheritances and even lesser reasons, co-workers, the Milk man and so forth.
It seems people who value money are the most dangerous, or have the potential to be.
Such people seem like angels until the begin to run out of money, then they'll do about anything to not go broke.
So I'll end as started this post...and that is, if you avoid people, you avoid issues.
But sadly it can be lonely doing that, so have to find the right balance.
People should start 'reverse spamming', in other words when receive unsolicited mail or email, than why not unsolicite them right back with stuff of your own, church flyers, this news letter, than business promo, and then add the solicitors names and addresses to own mailing list and give them a dose of their own medicine.
And even sell the solicitors names and addresses they way they compile and sell 'yours'.
Gun sales are on the rise, and my question is why?
There's nothing that has occurred over last few months, including riots, that would make me even think of needing a gun.
And many first time gun sales are being recorded.
1. Most of these guns will end up being sold in the 'black market' where they will end up on the streets in the hands of criminals, who will indeed use them.
2. Many of these guns will get stolen, criminals love stealing guns from peoples cars and homes, and once again they'll end up on the streets in the hands of criminals, who indeed will use them.
3. Many of these guns will end up being used domestically, in interpersonal fights, spousal issues, and so forth, people will get drunk and feel empowered and accidently shoot themselves or someone they loved.
4. As a result of all these odd people buying guns, and ammo, violence will surge...not only that but expect innocent people to get shot for not good reason by paranoid gun owners in the suburbs.
Say some 'black' mail man or other delivery guy approaches door, and paranoid home owner thinks it's a robber, or Uber meals delivery guy, or any number of dozens of delivery services.
I'm just not sure how a gun, at least in my own life, will help keep me safe or safer.
Actually I'd rather buy a ballistic vest instead, I'd rather be shot, survive and sue, than to shoot another by mistake, and spend rest of life in prison, or other legal proceedings that would wreck rest of life.
I mean now days with all these sue happy Attornies, even if you think you're justified in shooting another, it won't nessisarly get you off in 'Civil Court', where survivor or their family can spend rest of life suing you.
Tonight I actually feel less safe knowing that more people have guns who don't have the proper mindset to handle them.
Both political sides deliver the news in a very toxic manner.
In real life, as a contrast, when I go to work, I see normal people of all colors getting along and doing their job.
In real life I don't see all the 'street activist' types, I mean I know they exist, but not in the numbers media makes it seem like.
Nor do I see black folks crying out loud for justice, or for 'better conditions'.
The blacks I encounter, in real life, have very good jobs, are managers, drivers, Port Union workers (who make very high salaries), city officials, business owners and more.
But according to both left and right media, all blacks all bunched up in the ghetto, like the TV show 'Good times'...with JJ.
Even Floyd's family grief wasn't about 'economic conditions', but rather 'police brutality', and that's got hi-jacked by dozens of other groups now.
Now you got 'W' millinials running around flaming the fire, and telling 'blacks' their oppressed.
One black lady on the news was seen telling 'W' youth 'No, I'm not oppressed, not until you all just burned down my building'....or something like that.
A new type of ugly racism is emerging among younger whites' and that is this idea that all black people are oppressed, and that it is their duty to help all these oppressed black people even if oppressed black person a Doctor earning 6 figures.
The type of arrogance, and condescension this new white youth based racism takes on, where you determine everyone else is afflicted and disadvantaged by 'I'm not', is dangerous.
Racism is basically when one thinks they have the right to define others that suit 'your' interest and not theirs....whether done by Liberals, or Conservatives, it comes from the same 'spot'....
Short on time, must wrap up here.

The Zone is not the fastest moving 'thought forum', by no means.
Nor does it, can it, compete with such forums or social media platforms, no way, not even close.
But what the Zone is, is more like a collective library of thoughts and events that stick around years or months, after others have moved on from them.
As such, I think the Zone tends to attract more older readers who like to reflect.
I mean I to, sometimes see what's going on today on the streets, and all the videos of action, and 'thrill videos' and all, which if sitting at homes makes you feel 'old and dated', or can.
Today's modern quick moving social media can make you feel obsolete even, if you let it.
But even those you see in these videos aren't always hyped up 24/7, or will be forever, and when they do tire, and want a deeper perspective of where they were at years ago, then maybe the Zone will still be here for them to read...only time will tell and knows.
People always say 'I'm not racist', just for them to resign in public for getting caught calling another a racist name, when they didn't think they were on air.
It's just all so stupid.
Racist people love saying 'I don't know any racist person'.
It's like ISIS members saying 'I don't know any one who's radical and cruel'...
Of course not, cause evil people rarely see themselves as being evil, duh
There just is not cure.
Truth is people are cruel, always have been, always will be, and most who are not, aren't, simply cause they have it good at the moment or are atop the social ladder of comfort, but let them become desperate and see how quick the animal in them comes out.
Everyone is 'bad', it's just right now in history, 'white' bad people happen to be atop the social ladder....but in another 300 years 'black' bad people may be running the world again.
No matter how you arrange people, they're bad.
Just look at all those true detective shows, guys killing women for no good reason at all.
It just amazes me, a guy, will finally get a nice lady to go out with him, and then ends up killing the lady, for no good reason, and they'll do this over and over again, serial killers.
When many of those women who dumb enough to date serial killer, wouldn't give 'you' the time or day.
I mean there are many single males who are lonely who are never given chance to date, yet woman who turns down decent guy, fly's right into the arms of deranged killer.
Again, makes no sense to me....are women that stupid??
I mean there's just no solution to humanities absurdities.
No matter how logical you are, to another you don't make sense.
IT's like 'Alice in Wonderland' world or something.
History bloody, and full of blood, yet presented in such a sanitized way in history books.
The whole world is nutty.
I wish I could start a brand new world, brand new planet, it would at least be a few generations before it to went nutty.
I know that sounds like a dumb question but that question is the root of a lot of peoples unhappiness and inability to relax when, say, off work.
This idea that we've always gotta be doing something, or earning ever more money, I mean when is enough enough?
Me personally, when off work, and say laying in bed, or the Futon, and just drifting in and out of sleep with TV on, a part of me feels guilty, as if I should just 'be out there doing more'.
But what does 'more' mean?
I mean is it wrong to just be or feel content with where you're at in life?
I mean maybe everyone not meant to be a billionaire or Millionaire or wealthy.
But as 'go getters', many of us guilted by our own spare time, to the point can't just enjoy a full day off without feeling 'gee, I should be doing something else other than laying in bed or sitting on the couch'.
Well isn't that what many wealthy or retired people do anyways?
I mean my gosh, I have what I have when lived at home, and that is able to come home and just sit around and do nothing, when off, how is that bad?, I tell myself.
I mean even the rich and wealthy get sick, old and die, so me going out there and hussling, trying to get second job, this and that, none of that will extend my life at all, I'm still eventually going to get sick, and die, so why not just enjoy my time off 'as is'?, I tell myself.
Sure, I'm not wealthy, but one thing I do have that the wealthy have, and that is 'time'.
