Birds of a Feather

I went to Cumberland Hospital today to pick up medication, and as I was nearly there I saw some birds (two non-budgie species) dive-bombing a budgie. I intervened on the budgie's side by standing near it chasing away approaching birds. I also held out my finger for the bird to land on if it wanted true Close Air Support. To my surprise, the budgie didn't waste any time and flew to my finger.

I then continued to the hospital, but by the time I got there, the bird had moved onto my shoulder. It continued to stay with me while I got the medication, and my intention was to take it back to where we met, then I was going to sit with the bird until it felt like leaving. However, shortly before we returned to the same spot, it decided to jump off and inspect the road, and then a short while later flew off.

So that is very interesting power dynamics. It also shows that I am an anti-speciesist. I am willing to have a relationship with another species. God making friends with another species is the equivalent of the One True God doing inter-universe travel.




No Safe Place

Once again terrorists have targetted American civilians successfully. If they had a nuclear bomb, they would have used that instead.

As I have previously stated - all this anti-Americanism in the world needs to be cleaned up. Hostile governments and people need to be eliminated. Americans have a basic human right to not live in fear.

The enemy needs to be clearly identified (ie message 666) and then the full force of the US military needs to be applied. And we should stop counting dead soldiers as a great tragedy. Soldiers exist to take the heavy blows. At the moment we are basically shielding soldiers with civilians. ie it is better for civilians in Boston to die rather than soldiers in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, death-by-car-accident blows both figures away. This is all very simple maths. We just need someone to make the case, and for the public to accept it.
