Insanity, power and swans!!!!!


Good afternoon interweb, Oh my, the font size on my pc has suddenly gone all small, you know difficult to read small. Either that or the prescription on my glasses has run out again. Hang on a minute, Is that better? Much thank you.
It is you know a perfectly appropriate response to reality to go completely insane.
I think that we all have a certain level of madness within us but the main difference is the degrees of madness and whether or not one can keep it in check.

Many people throughout our checkered history on this planet have been called insane or mad but at the same time these mad people have also shown signs of remarkable insight and genius. There is also the mad dog type of character such as Colonel Gaddafi,
I warned about there being much darkness in the minds of men in a previous blog post http://bagsta69.blogspot.com/2011/10/interweb-dictators-and-darkness-in.html Now that Gaddafi’s son has been captured what will the new regime do?
New York, US - The New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) has urged Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) to uphold its international legal obligations and promptly surrender Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi to the International Criminal Court (ICC). In a statement posted on its website, HRW also said the forces reportedly holding Saif Al-Islam in the town of Zintan and the NTC must ensure that he is treated humanely in custody.
Saif Al-Islam, who was reportedly apprehended on 19 November in southern Libya, is subject to an ICC arrest warrant for crimes against humanity in an investigation authorised by the UN Security Council Resolution 1970.
The resolution requires the cooperation of Libyan authorities with any ICC investigation into serious crimes committed in Libya, including the surrender of ICC suspects.
“The authorities will send an important message that there’s a new era in Libya, marked by the rule of law, by treating Saif Al-Islam humanely and surrendering him to the ICC,” the statement quoted  Richard Dicker, international justice director at HRW, as saying. “His fair prosecution at the ICC will afford Libyans a chance to see justice served in a trial that the international community stands behind.”
HRW has documented recent cases of mistreatment in detention in Tripoli and Misrata, as well as apparent summary executions of suspected Gaddafi supporters by anti-Gaddafi fighters.
It is my belief that in this world at the moment life is incredibly cheap and I can see no end to this, the middle east is in the process of destroying itself and taking millions of innocent people with it. They say (there “they” bloody well are again) power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, I think that yes power does corrupt but absolute power is kinda neat if you use it for the right reasons. 

Imagine having the power over how other people behave, how they see their world and react to others. Been able to have an effect on how they think and function and interpret things. That is indeed power and such power would have to come with great responsibility, something that I lack in barrel loads. Somebody likened me to a swan the other day,

I thought wow, how nice, this was till they said “yeah, you have an air of being proud, stupid and mischievous." It took me a while to process the information and I'm still not sure if it was an insult or a compliment!
Anyway interweb I have taken up enough of your precious time today so I will leave you with this,
Magnetism is one of the six fundamental forces in the universe, the other five being Gravity, Duct tape, Whining, Remote control and the force that pulls dogs towards strangers groins.
Now lets be careful out there and remember,
 “some things belong to you and no one else”
Peace out yall THE BAGSTAXXX
