In the real world..


In philosophy, reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or might be imagined. In a wider definition, reality includes everything that is and has been, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible.

A still more broad definition includes everything that has existed, exists, or will exist.

Philosophers, mathematicians, and others ancient and modern such as Aristotle, Plato, Frege, Wittgenstein, Russell etc., have made a distinction between thought corresponding to reality, coherent abstractions, and that which cannot even be rationally thought.

By contrast existence is often restricted solely to that which has physical existence or has a direct basis in it in the way that thoughts do in the brain.

Reality is often contrasted with what is imaginary, delusional, (only) in the mind, dreams, what is abstract, what is false, or what is fictional.

The truth refers to what is real, while falsity refers to what is not. Fictions are considered not real.


One of the many (flecks) of information cast into my living room this morning was an update on “Nidal Malik Hasan,” and/or ..both (easier to pronounce and understand,) ..the Fort Hood shooter.

According to Webster: fleck, (in context) A small bit or flake.

The Fort Hood shooting was a terrorist attack that took place on November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood, the most populous U.S. military installation in the world, located just outside Killeen, Texas.

In the course of the shooting, a single gunman killed 13 people and wounded 29 others. It is the worst shooting ever to take place on an American military base.

The sole suspect is Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army Major serving as a psychiatrist. He was shot and taken into custody by Department of the Army Civilian Police officers, and is now paralyzed from the chest down. Hasan has been charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder under the Uniform Code of Military Justice; he may face additional charges at court-martial.

If he is convicted, there is a chance he could be given the death penalty. Hasan is an American Muslim of Palestinian descent. Internal Army reports indicate officers within the Army had discussed what they characterized as Hasan’s tendencies toward radical Islam since 2005. Additionally, investigations before and after the shooting discovered e-mail communications between Hasan and Yemen-based cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who quickly declared Hasan a hero, as “fighting against the U.S. army is an Islamic duty”. After communications between the two were forwarded to FBI terrorism task forces in 2008, they determined that Hasan was not a threat prior to the shooting and that his questions to al-Awlaki were consistent with medical research.

In November 2009, after examining the e-mails and previous terrorism investigations, the FBI had found no information to indicate Hasan had any co-conspirators or was part of a broader terrorist plot. The U.S. later classified Anwar al-Awlaki as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, and the UN considered Awlaki to be associated with al-Qaeda; Awlaki was killed by a U.S. predator drone missile attack in 2011.

However, one year after the Fort Hood shooting, questions still lingered as to whether the incident was caused by mental health issues, and government agencies still had not officially linked Hasan to any radical terrorist groups. (Source Wikipedia).

Of all the reports and accounts that I have heard or read to date concerning the Fort Hood shooting, ..I have yet to hear or read an account that approaches reality, and/or the truth.

According to Webster: re·al·i·ty, The quality or state of being actual or true.

In other words, the reporting on the Fort Hood shootings to date, (at least in my opinion,) have approximately the same credibility as a Big Mac…


 “Two all-beef patties, ..special sauce, ..lettuce, ..cheese, ..pickles, ..onions, ..all on a sesame seed bun.”

All beef patties? everything else “we’re” (we, ..the rank and file) ..are “sold” these days, ..believe it if you want to.

The news media keeps calling Major Hasan a terrorist, but then they don’t have much choice, ..after all, ..if it appears on their Teleprompter, ..they read it.

Nidal Malik Hasan 

So where did Major Hasan’s (label) “terrorist” come from?

From (above) of course, ..and since my blog is “espousing” reality today, ..I’m not talking about Mt.Olympus.

So why do you suppose that “our” government, ..or more correctly, ..the Obama Administration, ..wants U.S. Army Major Nadal Hasan to be charged as a terrorist?

It couldn’t be because Major Hasan is a practicing Muslim? Barack Obama has no beef with Muslims.

Besides it wouldn’t be politically correct or proper for any U.S. President to be politically incorrect, I’ll take that off the table.

Actually, ..alluding to (reality) ..and (common sense,) Major Hasan is not a terrorist.

According to Webster: ter·ror·ist, One that engages in acts or an act of terrorism.

According to Webster: ter·ror·ism, The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.

Fact: Major Nidal Hasan is an American citizen, moreover Major Hasan was at the time of his indiscretion, (murdering rampage) ..a duly sworn commissioned officer in the United States Army.

Thus, (at least in my opinion,) being an individual sworn to uphold the laws of the Constitution the United States of America and to defend America against all enemies foreign and domestic, is, (in my opinion) ..legally impossible for Major Hassan to be a terrorist.

So what is Major Hasan?

Simple, Major Hasan is a traitor.

Of course, ..not being a Harvard lawyer, ..I’m not qualified to “realistically” venture a guess as to why anyone has yet to recognize that Major Hassan is a traitor? ..not a terrorist.

So what did Major Hasan do that was treasonous?

Simple; When he murdered 13 Americans, I personally would consider that breaking his oath to protect America and its citizens.

But then what do I know?

So let’s simplify it even more, ..Major Nidal Malik Hasan is a murderer, (not a simple every day run of the mill murderer). He’s a (mass murderer). Accordingly, totally mystifies me as to why the American judicial system, include the (U.C.M.J.) ..Uniform Code of Military Justice, ..hasn’t, ..can’t, ..or won’t try this scumbag and either shoot him, ..or lock him up for a couple a thousands years?


 One more reason, (at least in my opinion,) ..why the Obama administration, after November 6, needs to be referred to as the previous administration.

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
