  I have believed for many years, and still do to this day that we, by that I mean humanity will never be rid of radicals, i don't care whether their particular dogma is religion, politics, race or whatever.....whether they are left wing, right wing, or some other wing nobody has heard of yet.......but they all suffer from the same delusion, and that is they are right and if you disagree, there only a few choices on their part, those that oppose must be, minimalised, re-educated, persecuted, or eliminated.....
  And despite the promises, of well meaning people, while we may be able to defeat radicalism in individual cases, the history of the world teaches us that we will never eliminated the ideology of radicalism.....I think it might be hardwired into our DNA....... 
  This is a selection of random thoughts that have been swirling around the thing that is sometimes laughing called my brain, or are they really random...
  The massive amounts of "Fake News" that seems to invade social media, much in the style of Attila The Hun, do i find articles while surfing the net, like everyone else obviously, but do i post it on social media without a little research, absolutely not,  i may list the article here over on the left, but under a heading that basically says, "Reader Beware", I've come to the conclusion that the problem of this mass invasion is that peeps will find an article that they agree with, which advances their own point of view, and rather than do a fact check, they assume that since the article agrees with their point of view it must be right.....
  Note To Self: you really must stop trying to argue facts with peeps who are convinced beyond doubt that their point of view is right, I've told myself over and over that I'm wasting my time..........and I do my best to avoid those situations, those type of posts, and from time to time despite my better judgement, and respond......and I've taken an oath that I will never do it again.........but it seems there is always a next time......
  Which brings me to an old adage:
  " If people are convinced their are right, there is no point to confuse them with facts "

  I'm collecting material for an article, which I may or may not ever write, from my unique point of view it makes perfect sense, but I foresee that it could most probably create a fire storm, not the first time I've done that, but before i post it here or anywhere else i need to as the old saying says 'I must get all my ducks in a row'..........and then I must decide whether or not, it's worth the hassle that it might cause,...

  I wrote awhile ago about the new version of Iron Chef, now called Iron Chef Gauntlet........7 chefs take on each other and the winner takes on 3 of the best Iron Chefs......honestly I don't care fore the format......but right from the start, I picked one of the 7 competitors, as being the one to watch, and that was Stephanie Izard..... and she got through the prelims and ended up winning against the 3 Iron Chefs.....so she now has the title of Iron Chef.......however..........i still have a problem with the format.........
