Mass Shootings and Meth

For those of you that have been living in a box we offer this information from the U.S. Library of Medicine.

Methamphetamine – meth for short – is a very addictive stimulant drug. It is a powder that can be made into a pill or a shiny rock (called a crystal). The powder can be eaten or snorted up the nose. It can also be mixed with liquid and injected into your body with a needle. Crystal meth is smoked in a small glass pipe.

Meth at first causes a rush of good feelings, but then users feel edgy, overly excited, angry, or afraid. Meth use can quickly lead to addiction. It causes medical problems including

  • Making your body temperature so high that you pass out
  • Severe itching
  • “Meth mouth” – broken teeth and dry mouth
  • Thinking and emotional problems
Meth was invented by the Germans in the 1920’s.

The Wehrmacht used Pervitin in the millions of tablets per day. It was a key factor in the Blitzkrieg’s success. This was not unusual for the times. Germany did not ban any drug. It was marketed in Germany for practically everything from weight loss to depression.

Yes, even in America.

Researchers today are rediscovering that humans have a natural aversion to killing other humans. This was well known to the Nazis. The Nazis also found out that Methamphetamine use removes this aversity. Pervitin use made the German Army very effective in killing the enemy. It also allowed them to cheerfully shoot and hang civilians. Meth was very popular in Concentration Camps.

To say that America has a problem with Meth is an understatement. We also have a problem with mass shootings. Can this be linked to meth use. Please note that the U.S. Library of Medicine blandly lists “Thinking and emotional problems” as a side effect to Meth use.

But you might say that your kid doesn’t use meth. Do they have ADD. Attention Deficit Disorder is treated with Ritalin, which is “medical” meth.

The case I’m making is that if you take young people with emotional or mental problems and they use Methamphetamine or you give them Ritalin, the link to violent behavior such as mass shootings becomes clear.

What say you?

The BeaTles

us and the Fab Four

As a teenager, I was a BIG Beatles fan. When Yoko broke them up and I still blame her to this day; I went to my backyard and shot up about $1000 dollars [today] of Beatles 45’s. When John was gunned down by that lunatic, she was right there. SHE WAS RIGHT THERE! Why didn’t she jump to stop the bullet? Why didn’t she commit Suttee?

January 30th, 1969

By January, 1969 the Band was grinding to a stop. John was fighting a Heroin addiction, George had simply quit the band, Paul was the ever cheerful cheerleader trying to keep everyone happy and Ringo simply wanted to play music. Than Band had been in the studio for years and they all craved a live performance. the idea of a live performance was part of the Let it Be Project. On January 30th, Paul “suggested” they record at the Apple Studio. In the studio, they reminisced over many scotch and waters about the good old days of playing in front of a live audience. Little was being recorded except a bitch session.

John said, “Bugger it, the roof’s a good idea. We can always film something real later.” Except there would be no “later”.
