American soldiers are war criminals.
Seven digits - civilians - dead in Iraq since the decade-long invasion and occupation, many times that displaced, ISIS notwithstanding. That's a better than 30-to-1 civilian-to-enemy-combatant kill ratio.
Afghanistan is little better, if significantly less damaging. Figures are murky there, but we're about equal in terms of "enemy" personnel killed and civilian deaths.
And let's not forget the black-clad Hollywood-esque Disney-style pure evil caliphate that's emerged from our genocide in the region. Hello, ISIS, child of Uncle Sam.
The military does not exist to "protect freedoms" or whatever stupid asinine thing you want to spew to justify its existence.
There hasn't been a remotely credible threat to this country since the late 1800s. The only danger your freedoms are in is from your own elected officials and their Orwellian law enforcement agencies.
The American military is a massive genocide machine and literally nothing more.
Contrary to protecting your freedoms, they actively and violently limit them.
That is an actual link to actual ongoing events in Ferguson, MO where the National Guard has been mobilized. Why has the National Guard been mobilized this time? It's not to quell rioting - it's because the grand jury responsible for indicting (or, as the case will be, not indicting) admitted child murderer Darren Wilson will be making their announcement in the coming days or weeks.
This isn't hyperbolic or speculative. The governor of Missouri is deploying trained soldiers ahead of time, so that the foregone conclusion of "no harm no foul" doesn't cause rioting over the state's refusal to prosecute a coldblooded Nazi. There is technically no verdict yet, but a state of emergency has been declared and soldiers are being sent in to terrify people into not reacting.
Really let that sink in for a minute.
That is all your brave hero-soldiers do. Genocide the shit out of the Third World, and back on the homefront, act as an overwhelming show of force to preemptively discourage free exercise of your right to assemble.
Welcome to Soviet Style chilling.
More than 25% of the federal budget is earmarked for the military. That, however, is misleading - in actuality, more than half of all federal funding goes to the military through creative data-fudging known as discretionary spending.
Black kids are murdered left and right by state-sanctioned white pigs in blue uniforms. The military comes in, ahead of time, to frighten you into not reacting to this.
More than 1 in 2 black kids are born into poverty. Public assistance programs - already receiving a bare pittance - are slashed left and right, while discretionary spending for our global genocide machine continues to balloon.
I'm sick of typing.
American soldiers are war criminals and even discounting the rampant unjustifiable murder abroad, do nothing but destroy the people in this country from within as well.
Soldiers are not heroes. Soldiers do not "serve this country." Soldiers are parasites and bigots and cold-blooded killers of the innocent.
No one should be proud of the troops and no troops should be proud. You should all be deeply fucking ashamed.
There is a lot of talk from people here about how VF seems to be dying. There is also a lot of talk of people ruining the site. Yes, people are ruining VF. People are being elitist assholes and penis wrinkles to every new person who tries the site out. Then treating people who have been here for years like they don't mean shit. While I agree you can post your opinions on stupid shit even if some people find them harsh, there is a fine line between doing that and running people off the site.
We then have those who feel they are the "shit" on here and we hold everyone up to standards of what kinds of people should be here. You don't dress like a demon from hell every day? YOU'RE NOT GOTH ENOUGH! You don't shave off your eyebrows and wear the same things as everyone else here? YOU'RE NOT ALTERNATIVE ENOUGH! You're older then 24? YOU'RE TOO FUCKING OLD TO BE HERE! The bottom line here is people here seem to be stuck in this DUMBASS mindset of what they think this site is for or who is good enough to represent it.
VF is a place where everyone who feels like they don't belong can be. Yet, we discriminate against those who we feel aren't good enough. VF is dying and the only ones to blame are ourselves. Who are we to have authority over who is "Alternative enough" to use or represent this site? You want the site back to the way it was? Then pull your stuck up heads out of your asses and do something about it! VF is only as good as the quality of its members and those who represent it. We need to start being more open to all aspects of what alternative is... Not what we think it should be.
Get over yourselves, get off your high horses, and get VF back to the way it should be.
Edit: Yes, there are technical and cultural reasons why VF is declining in popularity. That combined with what I am talking about are all mixing into the cause of the failing culture.
I agree things like this are what's ruining this site, this place use to be so easy to make friends and talk to people. Now it seems most people on here won't give me the time of day just cause of my age and the fact I don't look a certain way, since I don't have the emo look nor body.
Im sick of seeing children bitch about their parents. If their is legitimate abuse going on call social services, tell a teacher/police officer, ect.
When you are clearly healthy looking (maybe too much so...), have iphones/laptops/cameras, any internet access, and all these clothes and shit... Your life's not that bad.
Your parents sacrifice a lot for your ass. Be thankful you have parents there to support your whiny, self-entitled, over indulgent, self.
First off, yes, I have curves, but Im not "Curvy", so I don't want to be invited (even at random).
I don't care that you have "curves" and less people then you think "Think less of you" because you do have curves.
If people here made a "Skinny" people cult there would be outrage from here till half past forever...
You are hypocrites.
REAL WOMEN HAVE TITS AND VAGINAS
That is all.
The journals you post are so great, shit. While I disagree with some of the commentary, I still think that on this site in particular there needs to be more body acceptance in general. As a person who is fat and loves being fat - I've been in some cults in the past who were all into the body shaming thing and that just ain't cool. So, word up - I can appreciate this as a fat girl.
I haven't really used this as a Journal in soooo long so I figured, why not give it a shot again.
So some updates on me as of late, things are better now that I'm off caffeine. October was a crazy month for VampireFreaks. We had 3 events and ComicCon in addition to the regular work load and other events that we attended that month as well. Very tiring. I found myself chugging down XL coffee's from Dunkin Donuts, thanks to VanessaVicious , and since then I have been drinking waaay too much coffee which resulted in having really bad caffeine headaches and constantly being sleepy throughout the day. In anycase, things are getting better now, I'm slowly recovering and getting back to a normal productive state. I've been getting back into exercising and cooking at home which is awesome and doesn't feel like a chore anymore lol.
I'm super excited to be DJing at the next Cybertron, it will be my first time doing so under Jet's wing.
Speaking of which, tonight is DJ practice. I need to step my game up if I want to rock the house. Christmas is around the corner, looking forward to that. It's been a harsh but great year and I'm looking forward to what 2015 has to offer. I really feel like it will be a great year for VampireFreaks and everyone within it's community.
That's all I got for now, I'll try to post more Journal entries. Enjoy the day guys, comment if you want to chat a bit.
The people who ruin VF#8 - Self-righteous old farts
November 02, 2014, 07:14:am
Oh boy, this one might be tricky. You bet your arse I can see the looming irony in a 43-year-old ranter blaring away about this particular group of bastards, but sometimes in life you've just got to gird what's left of your loins, scream "BANZAIIII!!!!!" and charge the fucker, even if it blows up and takes your own face off. Maybe I can pull it off by being all balanced and reasonable about it. If not, I'll just sling in a load of dick jokes and hope nobody notices.
There is a certain group on VF that have hit that awkward stage in life where the large, hard and throbbing organ in their pants is no longer their knob- it's their prostate. That youthful torrent of testosterone has dried up to a trickle, they're past their prime and the young bucks, all peachy of skin and with erections that could carve glass, are leaving them far behind. So what do they do? Hold up their up hilariously limited life experiences as THE TRUTH and declare that any deviation from their values is WRONG and BAD and will result in NO GIRLS EVER WANTING TO TOUCH YOUR WINKLE, EVER. And should anyone younger than them try challenging them with outrageous concepts like logic and reason, they will either be sneeringly dismissed as a child, or be battered around the head with a mallet made of pure, refined patronisation.
The subjects are endless. Your haircut? WRONG! Your taste in clothing? WRONG! Your views on social issues? WRONG! The way you interact with people you want to put bits of your own body in? WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! Because, hey! They've managed to become old by doing things differently and therefore their experiences are true of all humanity, right?
This is what happens when good, honest young lust gets replaced by a God complex, and it leaves a part of me wishing that "Logan's Run" was a documentary. At the risk of coming across like some appalling old hippy, I'd like to point out the life is a complex and messy beastie, and there are a multitude of paths to happiness and success in life, and that most of them haven't been invented yet. And it's going to be you bright young things that invent them, because I have nothing more constructive to offer than an "I was in the war, you know". So do the smart thing and ignore all of us over-30s. Leave us to our sagging ballbags, incontinence and gloom, and go make your own mistakes just like we did. And learn from it.
What's Really Wrong With Vampire Freaks

A Buddhist friend I had wore a bracelet with the symbol in it. And since I was in highschool and ignorant when I called her out on it she explained to me how the actual swastika is backward compared to her symbol and that it meant something along the lines of balance and peace.
