Mysterious Creature of WWW

During the last week my computer has been altered internally, and not by me. My entire file system has been lost. My picture files have disappeared. Everything, even the lower tool bar is not working properly. What, who, why?

It is my habit to organize photos by subject in order that I can find pictures quickly. Apple seems to think differently. Every time an update is downloaded the computer is different, and not always for the better. All my pictures are still in the drives, but I can’t access them because my file system is lost. Searching the internet supports the fact that this is not just my problem, therefore, I blame it on Apple. They employ thousands of people who are under the gun to make the computers better, but in their wisdom they screw things up. Guys like me were brought up on logic and order, and so have the Apple guys, but the difference is that their logic is not mine, and their idea of order is from another planet, or at least a few generations away from mine.

Like Microsoft, Apple income depends on getting people to buy their software. When they can’t sell me a new computer they revise the existing software and call it an upgrade. Millions of us take the bait, and the result is mayhem. I predict it will take the rest of my remaining life to get my files straightened out to a point where I will be able to understand how to use this damned stupid machine.

Thank you Apple. GRRRRRR.

I Can’t Believe

When it comes to kids wanting to change their gender while still in grammar school, I cannot, nor will I, ever believe it is possible. It’s been a long time since I was that young, but it never occurred to me that I might want to be a girl. The subject never came up in our house. My brother is a boy, I am a boy, and my sister is a girl. We were satisfied with life as it happened. What I could believe is that kids who want to change their gender at age five or six have been brainwashed. Perhaps by parents who wanted a girl instead of a boy or vice versa. Kids just don’t think that way. They are too young to really understand the difference. Another thing I don’t understand nor believe is the medical industry that is growing up around gender change. There must be a lot of sick doctors who believe they can become famousl by supporting the physical surgery they implement to change a boy into a girl.

There has to be something in the food or water these people drink to make them believe in what they do. There is no other explanation. What is scarier to me are the laws that politicians are implementing to allow six year olds to undergo major body transformations without parental approval. Instead of giving parents the responsibility they have for bringing up their progeny the law pushes the right on to elementary school teachers. That is totally insane. In fact nothing about gender change is sane.

One of my theories is that the brains of these children have been infiltrated with garbled messages and the young brain just soaks it all in, and messes up the intricate linkages between mind and body. One way that occurs is by the constant repetition of thought processes that may occur during electronic games. All kids love playing computer games and parents use the games as a way to keep their child occupied and out of their hair. The games allow characters to morph from one person to another, they can change personalities with button pushes in instants. I know from my own addictions to electronic games that the desire to win and play is strong. One game I play is two deck solitaire. The stats kept by my computer show my win rate to be 16.2%. That is a losing statistic, but the desire to beat this game of chance continues. The same meter tells me that I have spent a total of 122 days, 23 hrs, and 25 minutes playing a game that I cannot beat. Yet, whenever I get near my laptop, I play another round. If that isn’t conditioning I don’t know what is. It is hard for me to realize that I have spent four months of my life playing solitaire, but it is a fact.

Statistics of populations world wide show that the number of people who are transgender varies between 1-5 percent. My math calculates that to be as many as 80 million people who have been born with their wires crossed. Is it our responsibility to convert these souls into their proper gender? I say no. We are still far away from having the smarts and the techniques required to make gender reassignment safely feasible. At this point we are merely performing experiments on kids to uncross their wiring. That puts us in the NAZI class of experimenting on humans because it is fun to do.

One day, soon I hope, these people who believe they can alter nature and revise gender will wake up and reverse the process. By that time we will be flooded with generations of kids who have been bodily re designed to think they are something other than what they are. The problem is they will have no way to reset to what is normal.
