Russian Prime Minster Vladimir Putin has accused the United States of orchestrating the conflict in Georgia to help our election tilt in favor of a certain candidate.

Before reading this today, I had heard from my dad that on some "liberal radio show", which he didn't mean in a derogitory manner by the way, that the conflict was being set up to help John McCain.

War matters typically help the Republican side. For some reason, people think they are safer when it comes to war matters by siding with a Republican. Of course, Iraq is a total mess for the George W. Bush and the Republican party, so why not start some shit in the European nation of Georgia to dredge up those classic Cold War fears about "THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING!" After all, they whole "THE TERRORISTS ARE COMING!" schtick was ran into the ground and then some, which is a key factor in why they lost control of Congress in '06. People will still denounce a Democratic member as "a communist" (even when they have no idea what that actually means), so if that insult works, painting the Russians in a terrifying light might also be valid to the lowest common denominator of "undecided" voters.

So am I saying we started this stuff? I'm not saying either way, but I do think that staged or otherwise, it will probably help McCain a lot more than Obama.

Irrational Fears [Aug. 28th, 2008|06:12 pm]

Who is to say that a fear is or isn't rational? Just because it's not something harmful, or because a majority of people are not afraid of something specific then when someone does end up being very afraid of said something specific all of a sudden it's irrational?

I am ridiculously afraid of ghosts, deep water, and haunted houses(like the entertainment kind around Halloween), and I mean RIDICULOUSLY afraid. All of these things can and have scared me to the point of crying, feeling sick, or throwing up. I couldn't really tell you why I'm so afraid of these things either. The issue with haunted houses I think goes back to when I was a kid, my mom would make me go in them and they scared me so bad as a child and I've never been able to kick that fear.

Anyway, why is that irrational? My brain must have it's reasons for why I'm afraid. Plus aren't we all different, it's like defining what or who is normal. Who is to say what's normal when we have 6 billion different individuals on the planet with their own thoughts and ideas.
