No Remorse

A story about how a dog in Milwaukee was brutally tortured prompted the title for this blog. Reading and hearing about this story on the news really made me sick. I will copy and paste the article from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Article

Where to start with this? Totally disgusting. I'm sure people think "oh it is just kids being kids". I don't know about the rest of you but when I was younger I never thought that poking a dog with a stick and then setting the dog on fire would be a fun way to past the time. I'm a animal lover and any dogs or cats I have had if I was ever mean to them I always felt sad after wards. Some people believe an animal is not as important as a human being because it does not have a soul. Ok so an animal is not like a human but animals do feel pain and emotion. I can not imagine how it would feel to be set on fire like that. I don't want to imagine it. Once again the thought that people could actually do this to something makes me sick.

What's going to happen to these people? Probably not much. They are teenagers so they will probably get a slap on the wrist and then be put into counseling. To be honest that is not going to help. People who feel the need to do things like this already have the mindset that they will grow up to be a murderer. Do I have evidence to back this up? No I do not. It is just something that I think and I know. First they will start off with killing animals. Eventually when they feel like they can get away with it they will move onto humans. Again no evidence to support my claim but think about it. If you were going to one day be a possible killer wouldn't you start off small?

People like this have no place in our society. People are not perfect and they make mistakes but yet when these people commit crimes we feel as if we still have to protect them cause they are people. When you do something so horrible your rights should be thrown out the window cause obviously if you have no respect or compassion towards others why should anyone have respect or compassion towards you? I'm not suggesting that if someone commits a crime that we should kill them off. We are not God and should not control someone's fate in our own hands. Is locking them up in a jail cell or putting them through therapy the real solution to these problems though? A killer could be smart enough to go through all the therapy in the world and convince people he is fine and then through some loophole he gets released back into society and does the same thing again. Bring in some severe punishment for people. Like I said I am not saying kill these people off. One wrong doesn't make a right but for these people in question they decided to poke a dog with a stick and then set the dog on fire. Lets see how they react if they are set on fire and a group of people poke them with a stick. Maybe it is time for people who commit these horrible crimes to see how it feels by having them done back to you. In the case of murder though it would be impossible to repeat unless we murder the person so that would not help in teaching them a lesson. I bet we set those teens on fire for a bit maybe just maybe they will think twice about ever doing that again. Is it sick that I am suggesting it? Maybe but people aren't learning any other way that what they are doing is wrong so alternative methods are needed. No mercy for people who commit such horrible acts. No remorse.

People wonder why such horrible events happen all the time. Earthquakes, storms, flooding, etc. While it is all sad but you have to believe or I believe God is getting fed up with the way people are acting on this planet. He is pissed off and is making us pay for the shit we do. At the rate we are going who knows maybe 2012 could very well happen.

I felt like I needed to vent after hearing this story. It really struck a nerve with me. I got emotional over it. I went around the house looking for my cats so I could go tell them that I loved them and thanked both of them for being in my life. My opinions in this blog are my opinions. I don't think I am necessarily right or I am wrong. It gets tiring hearing stories about what some people do. It is truly sick. I guess though if you want to make yourself famous now a days all it takes is for you to do something horrible. Thankfully some people are much wiser with how they want to be known.

It's me again

Hello again. At least I didn't wait a few months before writing my next blog. It has been less then a week actually. Go me! Sitting on my laptop blasting music through headphones. Kinda felt like the perfect setting to just write. Plus I'm keeping an eye on the food I'm making. I'm making this velvetta meat cheese dip again in the small slow cooker. I made it for the super bowl a couple of months ago. Turned out rather well so I figure I would make it again. Something pretty easy to cook. So let me go over the happenings over the past week.

The weather would be a good place to start. It is spring again in Wisconsin. What does that mean? Very warm one day and then a few days later pretty cold. Last week we were hoovering around the upper 40s and then on Sunday the temperature shot up to 84 degrees. Of course it was humid on top of it so the house felt miserable which in turn made me feel somewhat miserable. By night time though it cooled off into the 70s. I sat outside for awhile just watching the clouds or any other random thing that was going on in the neighborhood. As much as I admit I am on the computer too much I do love going outside and just sitting out there. I don't have to be doing anything in particular. I am also one of those star gazers. I need a telescope badly. Later on that night we had storms coming this way so once again I sat outside and watched the storm come in. There was a lot of lightning. It was a rather awesome show. Went on for a good 20-30 minutes before the storm actually hit. It was rather windy too. I believe during the storm we had winds up to 60 mph. Monday, Tuesday, and yesterday our weather was pretty ok. In the 60s for the most part but now today we are in the 30s with clouds and strong winds. Suppose to stay crappy like this for awhile. Welcome to spring in Wisconsin. 80s one day and then down to 30s a few days later.

Oh forgot to mention that last Sunday I decided to try to make barbecue pork chops in the slow cooker. Seriously this was the best idea I have had in awhile. Turned out so good and so tender. The pork was falling right off the bones.

Last Friday me and my father are watching tv. Many months ago when he had gotten the 50 inch tv I said to him that all we needed was a surround sound system to go with it. Occasionally I would mention it but nothing too serious though. Well then he finally says to me "we should go buy a surround sound system". I was kinda like "really?". On Monday me and my father went to American to look at systems. The first system that one of the salesmen showed us we fell in love with. Nice sound, nice picture quality cause not only was it a home theater system it was a blu ray player. The price on it was 500 dollars. My father says to me "so what do you think?". I'm like "well it is up to you cause it is for you and it is your money". We decided to take it of course. The guy set us up with all the cables and what not so it would be a kick ass system. We came home after taking a detour to Dennys and I spent like nearly 2 hours hooking the shit up. We then turned it on and bam awesomeness followed. We finally caught up on dvds that we had bought and hadn't watched yet. Twilight Eclipse, Resident Evil:Afterlife, and Paranormal Activity 2. Yes I like the Twilight movies. No comments necessary about it! I like a broad variety of music and movies! Anyways during Paranormal Activity 2 my cats got the shit scared out of them thanks to the surround sound. With the surround sound you can hear all the creepy noises and the bangs of things going bump in the night are extremely loud. At one part the chick is in the kitchen and all the cabinet doors fly open. Now that even made me jump cause I was not expecting it but my cats reactions were priceless. Ozzy literally jumped up in the air and then ran into the kitchen. Loco tucked her tail between her legs and ran underneath the couch. Was pretty funny. I also set up Netflix on the receiver to download movies and programs from the net. Overall seems like this was a really good investment on my father's part. Tomorrow Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows comes out. Looking forward to seeing that again.

How ironic, I start talking about Paranormal Activity 2 and everything on my computer stalled for like a minute. Thank God I have the draft autosave thing for blogger. Of course with me watching that movie I had a tough time sleeping last night. Overactive imagination. It happens for most horror movies and/or paranormal/ghost movies. I blame it on the fact I have had a lot of ghostly experiences in my life so naturally when I watch crap like that I start I guess wondering if I am really alone at that point in time. I kept hearing random knocking on the walls last night. Now I know my family pretty good and I figure my mother and my sister are probably still around in this house looking after us. They probably sense my heightened "fear" and probably do things to play tricks on me. I was sitting by my computer and I heard a random knocking like noise on the wall right next to me. My immediate reaction was to say "oh don't do this shit to me now". Regardless it didn't help ease my mind at all last night. I also hate having to walk downstairs to go the bathroom at night. First of all it is dark down here. We have nightlights on but to get to the bathroom you have to walk past the entrance to the living room and then in the hallway that the bathroom is in you have my sister's old room to the left which is completely dark and then my father's door on the right which of course has a mirror on it. Being in the bathroom is ok other then me always thinking something is going to pop up in the mirror while I am in there. How many times has that happened in a horror movie? Many many times. When you walk out of the bathroom there are pictures of family on the wall straight ahead and then of course my father's door with the mirror on the left side of you. Yes even me, the man who walked alone in a cemetary at 3am before and who has a voice recording of a ghost in a cemetary saying "I asked you to please leave", still gets spooked out rather easily.

Anyways that is about all I can think of for the moment. If I forgotten anything that will just mean I should be back sooner then later for writing another blog. Until next time take care everyone and watch out for them ghosts.

The Nick returns, keep the midgets away!

After nearly a two month hiatus I have returned to bless all of you with my God like presence. Ok, give me a moment to regather my thoughts after starting off with something as laughable as that. Anyways yeah it has been awhile since I wrote. I guess it was more or less a personal preference of mine to stay away. Then I started to get the itch to write again so here I am with more of my useless bullshit. Enjoy!

The Packers win the super bowl and then everything starts on a downward spiral. Of course this was pretty predictable. I mean isn't that how life works? Something good happens then you then you come crashing down. Maybe I am just doing something wrong? Maybe I just suck at seizing a happy moment and turning everything else into something amazing. Anyways first it was the state of Wisconsin in an uproar over politics and our newly elected governor wanting to gut unions and collective bargaining rights. Tons of protests and whatnot happened cause of this. I don't claim to follow politics nor do I really support anyone. I've paid a bit more attention lately and I can only come to one conclusion. Everyone is insane. No one is right or wrong. Everyone just wants to screw each other over. We are taught at a young age to play nice with each other and work out our differences. How can kids learn to do this properly when adults (in high ranking positions might I add) act worse then little kids? I'm not going to spark a political debate so I'll stop right there.

Ah yes good ole job hunting. I really don't even want to touch this subject cause I'll just end up getting depressed and want to cut myself. Ok maybe not that extreme but still this subject is just depressing. I'm going to start thinking of alternative methods cause what is going on at the moment is just not working out and it needs to stop. With that being said I decided that it is time to do something that I should of done years ago. I'm going to work on getting my license finally. Yeah I'm sorry that Wisconsin will have to deal with another potential shitty driver but it is the best option I have with job hunting cause with a license I can go for a job anywhere. So yeah let's see how this will all play out in the upcoming months.

Last month me and my father were going to go take a little mini vacation to Wisconsin Dells. I haven't been out of the city in over 2 years. We had to cancel cause his knee was acting up and he could barely walk. Then of course being that it is spring time and spring likes to mess with me my knee started hurting and I was having trouble walking myself for about 10 days or so. Yep that was fun. "Hi and welcome to the Kendzierski house for cripples". On top of that I was having some feet problems. Not gout this time. During the winter months here the dry air takes it toll on my feet. They get really dried out and horrible. This year it went a step further and I kept getting random cracks on both feet. Very very painful. We got a humidifier for my room and it has been a lot better since. Me and my father are both finally feeling somewhat better so I think we may try for our Dells trip in a few weeks for my birthday.

Oh yes my birthday is coming up. Two weeks from Monday I will be 32. I don't think my birthday this year will top the birthday I had last year but if we are going to the Dells it should be good. So with me getting older does this mean I'm getting wiser or am I getting dumber? Well I guess I will answer the question like this. There is potential for me to be more wiser about being dumb. Yes I think that is my answer to that question. Maybe I'll figure things out better when I hit 32. Hey there is always hope...right?

I don't want to have an insanely long blog so I'll just touch on another subject. I know the title is deceiving a bit cause I mention something about midgets. Well hell people in my guild on WoW know me as the midget lover so in case any of them take the time to actually read my useless garbage I had to throw in something about midgets.

Ok anyways. The Rebecca Black song "Friday". I'm not really musically talented. I love music and I pay attention to and like a lot of different varieties of music. With that being said, this song has got to be the worse song I have ever heard. Her voice is absolutely horrible. The lyrics in the song are horrible. The whole its Friday part can be sorta catchy but oh my God the rest of it just makes me want to hurt someone really bad. I think the sound of me taking a crap is probably more appeasing then this garbage. She is 13. I understand they try to push kids when they are young to make them into stars and make the world love them but please for the love of God do not let her make another song. My ears can not handle it. Also in the song she talks about partying. What in the hell does a 13 year old know about parties? I mean seriously! The chick can''t even drive yet or drink alcohol or anything else you would associate with a party. A party is not a party unless the cops get involved. Like my going away party in Florida for example! Yeah ok so this song does the trick. It got everyone including me to talk about it. Now just please go away. Far away. Never write another song either.

Until next time this is The Nick saying goodnight and keep the midgets away from me or I will violate them.
