Be afraid, be very afraid

30 September 2010

From “Secret History“:

A travel advisory has been issued for Texas. Travelers are urged to use caution due to recent violent behavior in this border state – the largest known export point of weapons to Mexico and a major hub for human trafficking and narcotics consumption / production. Of particular concern are institutions of higher learning and military establishments in the state, though mothers and infants possibly possessed by demons may be strangled, bludgeoned to death, or drowned in mud puddles. Women married to men are at particular risk, both on military bases and in the region of East Texas. Cross burnings and white supremacist kidnapping / murder schemes also make travel in East Texas inadvisable. Travelers should be wary of all people and locations while in this former breakaway republic.

There is a distinct possibility of spill-over violence in the north of Mexico, which should concern us all.  Given the instability of the U.S. border region — with the failed state of Arizona, separatist gangs in Texas, and shootings on university campuses, perhaps it’s best to avoid the United States altogether.

    The recent shooting on the University of Texas campus was a suicide, on the 6th floor of the main library, by a 19-year-old math student. He shot in the air on a busy sidewalk outside the building with an AK-47 and then ran inside. It seems to me that he was determined to die and ensured that his would be a suicide by cop if he lost the nerve to shoot himself. He did not kill anyone but himself in the end. So sad.
    There are just too many guns in this country. And, gun-lovers, if you think that you are going to hold off the forces of a tyrannical government with your little home arsenal, you are wrong.

    Suicide is exactly what Texans should fear most… all the points I used are from murders or murder/suicides in Texas over the last twelve months. Ft. Hood is set to set a record in the number of suicides and murder / suicides this year. It is very sad, and I think the saddest thing is that while Mexico may face a level of criminal violence, the US is creating a level of social self-violence and individual isolation that is simply, well, depressing.

    Good to see you posting again. Good points brought up here – very good points. Wouldn’t it be something if policy makers could read this, weep and change!
