You Believe Twitter Supports Free Speech

TWITTER CENSORS PRO-GUN ACTIVIST
BUT NOT DEATH THREATS AGAINST HER

Conservative activist Kaitlin Bennett, grassroots director of Liberty Hangout and recent Kent State University graduate, attracted controversy when she posted a picture of herself on social media sporting her graduation attire and one of those scary “black rifles,” in this case an AR-10. But when she followed this up with a picture on Twitter holding two pistols, captioned, “If I had a pistol for every gender there is,” the social media site suspended her account for “violating our rules against abusive behavior.”
Did Twitter also suspend the accounts of the users who tweeted death threats to her or encouraged her to kill herself? Not so much, according to NewsBusters: Messages such as “Take that gun off your hip, put it to your head, then squeeze,” failed to generate any punishment.
Given the asymmetry of Twitter's response, it's hard to see this as a corporation that supposedly supports free speech taking a political side. Bennett wasn't harassing anyone, but those who harassed her were given free rein to do so.
The young activist asked followers on Facebook to “let the world know Twitter does not welcome Conservatives on their platform.”

You Stare While Driving

This phenomenon has been known by me for years, but it only recently came to my attention again. An 18-wheel truck driver on Facebook mentioned that a young man drove under his truck and was killed in the accident. I could deduce by his Post that he felt that he was partially responsible and that he felt sorrowful about the incident. Decent people do feel sorrowful about the loss of a young man's life, even if they weren't involved.

As I was unable to contact the driver, I made a request to my Facebook friends to help me find him. This led to a discussion about staring while driving and I posted the reason why I believed that it was not any action on his part that caused the death of the young man.

I believe that the young man stared at the underside of the truck which made him go into a trance that caused him to drive under the truck, causing the accident that killed him.

I witnessed the phenomenon first hand many years ago as a passenger in the front seat of the car that one of my sons was driving. (A new driver). While passing a trailer truck the car started veering to the right, towards the underbelly of the truck. I noticed that he was staring at the truck and not looking at the road ahead; and appeared as in a trance. I immediately took the wheel and spoke to him. This got his focus back and he indicated that he didn't know what had just happened.

Another incident that I wrote about in one of my police survival articles, is that of a young girl that drove right into the side of a police car that was parked on the side of the road. Unfortunately, the female police supervisor was standing at the driver's door talking to the officer inside the car. The young girls car peeled the officer off of the cruiser and killed her. Did the young girl intentionally kill the officer? I don't believe so. She went into a trance, causing her to veer towards the cruiser. My article also details on where an officer should position himself during a motor vehicle stop.

While discussing this phenomenon one of the bloggers stated that one of the driving instructors told him that one of the biggest causes of accidents involving young (new) drivers is staring instead of looking around. And that one of the best ways to kill yourself is to stare at the white broken lines while driving, especially while driving in fog.

Driving instructors should teach this to their young drivers. If they did, we'd have less young people killing themselves. Looking around instead of staring does not mean to be a swivel-head, but to merely be looking ahead, a bit to the sides, seeing any obstacles ahead so to be able to react in time, and not being fixated on any one object. If an object ahead appears to pose a danger, then, of course, pay closer attention to it.

Looking – is a physical activity through the eyes. It doesn't mean much.
Seeing - on the other hand, refers to the perception of what the eyes are looking at in the brain. It tells you whether the road ahead is normal or whether there is danger.
Staring - Is being fixated on only one object. Staring can lead you into a hypnotic trance that can lead you into a fatal accident. – DON'T STARE. LOOK and SEE.
