The Techno-Zombie World

So, yesterday I had to return the old starter from my car that I replaced on the weekend and decided while I was going right past a place that sells tires, I would see about getting mine replaced before the long drive back to Maine coming up in a short while.

I parked and entered through the main doors. I was pleasantly surprised to be immediately greeted by a salesman. I told him what I was after. He gave me some options. I told him what I wanted and he wrote up a work order. While he was filling out the paperwork, I glanced around, taking particular notice of the glass wall to my left that looked out onto the work area. Not very busy it seemed.

After finishing up the order and handing over the car keys, I moved toward the glass. As near as I could tell, there were about 4 employees and two of them were sitting down on something with their cellphones out. Hmmm.

I turned and went back to the sitting area. On the way, I passed what appeared to be the office. The door was open and two men, including the one that waited on me, had their cellphones stuck in their faces. Hmmm.

I got to the sitting area where I found 3 people waiting for their cars to be serviced. Guess what? All three had cellphones crammed into their faces. I made it a point to say, “Hello, there!” Crickets. Hmmm.

At one point a service man approached the sitting area calling out someone’s name. It was not my name. Nobody responded, because they had their cellphones shoved into their faces. It took several attempts before somebody awakened from their zombie trance and claimed to be the owner of the car waiting outside.

It was not that many years ago that under similar circumstances, you could meet and engage with someone else in a waiting area. It made the time pass and it was interesting who some of the people were that you might meet. No longer.

It would be my biggest fantasy to one day, before it’s too late, to see every cellphone on the planet destroyed. But you keep convincing yourself just how “important” those devices are.

Free Speech That’s Sure To Piss ‘Em Off…But Good!

Remember this guy in Maine? He erected a sign on his own property exclaiming, “Black Rifles Matter.” He’s at it again. This time, he’s definitely going to experience the wrath of the Left as he dared to erect cut-outs of a manger scene, wise men, angels and an infant baby Yeshuwah! How dare he!

It’s a Shame Really

I think that it is a shame that an organization like the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) is left with no money/resources to do the things a sportsman’s group should do. SAM was much bigger and better than fighting against animal rights and environmental groups, along with fascists like Michael Bloomberg. SAM used to have time and money to look after the needs of sportsmen, working with the fish and game department to make hunting, fishing, trapping, snowmobiling, ATVing, hiking, boating, wildlife management, etc. better and better all the time. No longer.

In the last ten years SAM has been zapped of all it’s resources and energy fighting against totalitarians who are convinced THEIR world would be better off by destroying the world so many Americans love and grew up with. Instead of making our outdoor recreation and sporting opportunities better, all that is left is the likeness of David and Goliath. As Goliath systematically weakens the little boy with the sling shot, until there’s nothing left to fight with, the giant, with much more powerful weapons, will prevail. Isn’t that all part of the plan?

Two anti-hunting bear referendums by hateful groups and now an evil man, who has surrounded himself with evil, brain-dead people, who are clueless as to what they are doing (most of them), want to further destroy your rights and freedom. What happened in this society that causes others to destroy that which is good, in the name of progress (that is what they call it)?

Bloomberg and others know that they have the money and power over little bothersome gnats like SAM. They will get what they want because they understand you better than you understand them.

In the meantime, SAM is hogtied, spending all it’s time fighting the fascist bullies. It is no longer a sportsman’s group but a small voice crying in a wilderness of Zombies.

What’s wrong? I just returned from a bicycle ride to Central Park (no not New York). I met perhaps a couple hundred people. I am not exaggerating when I say that not one of the people I saw was without a goddamn cellphone or some electronic device shoved in their faces – even all the Middle School children on their way to school. Zombies one and all. The world I live in, not theirs, that is the physical things around me, ain’t so bad. It’s interesting, sometimes pretty to look at. There are birds and other animals running about, and trees along with beautiful sunshine. The Zombies have left all that behind and cashed it in for their little mind-controlling toys – an instrument of destruction 100 times greater than the television set.

The fascists control those instruments of the Beast. They will convince the world that hunting, trapping and fishing are evil practices. They will convince the world that there is no need for guns. Central Government will prevail. They will control. Just keep watching your electronic device.

It’s a crying damned shame! We were told this would happen.

But don’t go look!

The zombie masses of America reach new record for emergency room visits due to walking into traffic while distracted by mobile devices

*Editor’s Note* – Last evening I was watching a hockey game on TV. The game was between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers. Early in the game, there was a severe hit by one player onto another in the corner of one end of the ice. The result of this action was a fist fight between the two players. Of course the broadcasters kept repeating the video footage of the hit and the ensuing fisty-cuffs. But, what was hilariously funny was what was going on in the seats immediately behind the glass where the fracas was taking place. “Fans” (I doubt they were really fans) were not reacting to any of the play and fighting. They weren’t even watching, because they had their faces stuck in their (prison) cell phones. Zombie Masses? You bet.

Addiction to mobile devices is a growing problem in America. It’s gotten to the point where people are so distracted that they will walk right into traffic, fall off train platforms, or even fall right off a cliff.

As Americans plug their entire existence into their mobile devices, they give away the now, sacrificing the present moment, and sometimes sacrificing their lives.

A Generation of Idiots? Zombies for Certain

I received an email today, one that has been around the Internet for at least a couple of years. In that email it quotes Albert Einstein as saying, “I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” Along with this quote are pictures of young people, the majority of whom are engaged with their cellphones and not the people they are with. The photos are below.

It is doubtful that Albert Einstein ever made such a quote, although some believe that he may have made something resembling this and as is the case in today’s Internet circus, someone(s) have taken it upon themselves to edit quotes, or simply make them up in order to stir the emotions of people.

Regardless of if or what Albert Einstein might have said, I’ll steal the quote, change it a bit and present it as an observed fact and my own perception of things, rather than some bit of social prophecy. The day is now hear that technology has surpassed our human interaction. The world has a generation of non thinking, technology-absorbed zombies whose entire lives are controlled by a small piece of electronic gadgetry. It has become the god of choice.

For those that know me well, know that I despise cellphones and basically all mobile devices. Not for what they can do in positive ways, which is very little, but how it has destroyed us as a society. Where once valued, the ability to successfully interact with other humans, to understand their personalities and characters, is a lost and seemingly unimportant and unnecessary part of existence. I pity the person who believes this technology is an equal or better replacement for natural human interaction and interpersonal communication.

“It’s The Time of the Season for Loving”

For those of us who grew up in the 60s and 70s, we well remember the “Zombies”. They made a hit out of the song, “Time of the Season”, and the lyrics state, “It’s the time of the season for loving”.

I’m either blessed or cursed to have a mind that operates like mine, but a friend sent the below picture to me with a brief caption that read, “It’s the season”. With my mind being ripped and pulled in several directions between humor and disgust and several stops in between, I soon began to see comparisons in which I formed a bit of a parody if you will; only for those most deserving.

First consider the name of the band who plays the song – Zombies. From Wikipedia, a description of a zombie: “The term is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli.”

I believe Zombie would be an apt label to place on our fish and game departments who refuse to acknowledge and deal with fast breeding predators like coyotes and wolves that are not “balancing our ecosystems” as the myth goes, but instead destroying it and other species along with it.

In addition, the photo depicts, not only the “natural” act of wild canine predators, but is also an accurate analogy of what is happening to the outdoor sportsmen.

Therefore, it is only fitting that the “Zombies”, both the singing group and the wildlife managers be honored with the photograph and the video, while the sportsmen get screwed. Note: For better effect, while viewing and listening to the music video, keep a close eye on the actions of those two coyotes. Makes for great entertainment.
